uitlington Hawkey. A dainty little baby ballad, written by the quaint George MacDonald, biasirome to light to-day from ruma g.iig tlhrioughli numbers of books and papers in searchi of something vastly diftferent, but no more strangely .sweet, o I Will put it right in here, I am sure you will like it, and per haps teach it to the little ones at home. Teach them all you can that is good, if it, is only a jingle, for the "good thoughts act as ha'rs to keep out the bad. Whiere did you oime from, haby dear Out if everyweirIe :1o iere. Where did (viol get y3ott' eyes of blue! Out of the sky, as I camet through. What makes the light in them sparkle and spin ll? Sonic of the starry spikes left in. Where did you get that little tear I found it waiting when I got. here What makes your forehead so smooth andl high A sift hand stroked it as I weut by. What makes y'our cheeks like a warm white rose? I saw soicmething better tlhan any ione knows. Whence that three-cornered smile of bliiss Thrce angels gave ime at once a kisQ. Where did you get this pearily ear God spoke and it coinie out to hear. Where dlid vi t gt tthese arms andl hands Love made itself into hooks and bands. Feet, whence dtild yin come, you darlinig llins From the same box as the cherub's wingt. How slid they all tirst come to you God thought about mie and so I grew. Bnt 1ow did you come to us. you dear ! Go tlihouhllt about You. and so I hl rCe. UNMASKED. "Don't ie i'1h1 in this, ny dear ldon't: What will your friends say: what will the world say, when they bear that Inuthe Howard js going to marry her music-teacher ? What do we know of this man? 9Oh.pause and consider, my darling-my darling." And gentle, motherly Mrs. Burnham knelt down on the rich carpet and slipped her pleading arms round the slender figure before her. "I have considered, Aunt Helen." ths girl said, coldly. "You ask me what do we know of Jean D'Esterre ? And I answer-we know he is a gen tleman. That is the only knowledge I value. If you will not consent to our nmari age now. we shall wait tfor a year, and then I shall be my own mistress. But, dear Aunt Helen," with a sudden soteniing in the proud voice, "-do be my friend in this! You have been so kind to me all my life, and now-" The beautiful, dark face grew strangely pleading. "Now I am kinder than I ever was," Aunt Helen said; "kinder, because of my great love for you dear. Harsh ly kind, perhlanps, in my anxiety for youir happiness. A girlS, young, handsome, and an heiress, cannot be too careful i i her choice of friends." "But you know--I love him." She said the word wistfully, depre catingly, lifting her lovely, troubled eyes to her aunt's ftice. "I know you do not, lanthe. A girl less than a year out of school: why, you do not know your own mind! Besides, my darling, let Inc tell you a truth, however terrible it may dimnd-hme does not love you ! I must speak plainly. He is only a contemp tible tfortune-hunter, w ho wants yoiur money." "Aunt Helen !" She had sprung to her feet like a young tigress, a i'el glow leaping boldly to the pilth olive o)f her cheeks, het eyes aflame. "My dear, it is titue. If the man has it in his niature to care for any but himself, lie loves Elsie Gaudet Sutherland's niece. Wfait till I have finished," as lanthe lifted hier 'head heatglitily to speak. "lie met her, two years ago in Paris. She is a com patriot of his. Think a moment, lanthe ! You must have seen how it was. She introduced him to her rdlatives as an old Parisian friend lie lta; good looks and a plausible manner,jthrough which, aided by the Sutherland's introduction, he secured an entree to our best houses. He is giving her lessons as well as you. He loves her; but you are an heiress, and his avarice predominates. If he cannot win you, he may succeed with her. Oh, my dear one, try and understand." For lanthe Howard stood quite still and motionless, looking bef'ore her with blind, unseeing eyes. She lifted one hand confusedly to her head ; all the hot flame taded trom her cheek. "I don't believe it," she said, slow ly as if too stunned for anger-"I don't believe it." "My dearest, I have been sudden. Forgive me," her aunt cried, reproach fully, alarmed at sight of that white wild face. "No," she said, calmly. though her lips were pallid and trembhng. "If you can prove to me that one iota of this story is true, I will thank you for my ,alvation. But," in the same strainedl voice, as thouih she were repeating a lesson; "I don't be lioeve it." I shall give you one proof; the 'other you shall see for yourself. Yes terday I went to visit at Sutherland's. They were not at home; but the ser vant said Miss Gaudet was practicing in tile music room. I went toward it of conurse nuannounced, expecting to findl her alone. The door was ajar, and as I ireached it I heard Jean D' Esterre's voice, intense, pleading. "Tell me lho I shall know you?" Then I heard Elsie Gaudet's light laugh. "If you should meet Par theni"a, how can I tell who it might be ?' I knocked, and Elsie sprang to answer, but not betore I heard him whisper, "Love needs not symbols. Ingomar will know." My dear one, it lies with you to do tl}e rest !" "How '?" drearily. "WVell, of course you know they alluded to Mrs. Kent's bal masque on the eighth. Go as Parthena your self." "IT' "Yes. W\ill you let me arrange with the costumer ? I shall have that dress sent to you-another to her." The girl started as if she had been shot. "No," she cried, passionately: "no!" Listen to confidence not intended for my cars! It would be mean, dishon orable. No!" "Ianthe, you have a mistaken idea of honor. You may save Elsie's hap piness as well as your own. Do not misjudge her. She is a god hlittle thing, and thinks he loves "her only. Did she know of the double game he is playing, I am sure she would scorn him. as she should. This man asked you to be his wife. Let him prove himself worthy to be your hus band. You should stop at no silly society scruples to tear the mask from that which may bring you mis elry and dishonor. My dear, if I am mistaken, I will beg your pardon and his, and give him to you with all my heart; but I love you my childl too dearly to risk her young life's wreck. Will yon be Parthe nia ?"' "Yes." At the door, Mrs. Burnham paused, and looked back, with eyes grown suspiciously moist and a great throb of compassion at her heart. For, in the center the room, with bowed head and nervously-clasped hands, Ianthe Howard stood, a pitifully child-like figure, des to her heavy ruby-velvet draperies-a girl standing alone un der time shivering, tottering ruins of her tirst love castle. "Are the costumes ordered last week finished '?" "Yes, madam." The proprietress hastily left less profitable customers to attend Mirs. Burnham. ·'.s I have the carriage and will be passing Miss Gaudet's, I shall (irop hers there, if it will be a convenience to von." Madam was too kind. They were rushed with work. They would be very grateful. So Mladam's liveried coachman lift ed the two long, brown paper boxes in the carriage and it rolled away. It was (juite dark when it drew up at the Southerland's door. "Just ring and hand this in, JohIn. Make haste-it is late." She pushed a box toward him. He obeyed her. Then lie climbed to his seat, she gave the order "home," and the carriage drove off. Mrs. Buruhian laughed, a little sad ly, to herself, and patted the box which held tihe pretty Parthenia dress. "Elsie will think it a mistake. How else could I convince her Besides, all's fair in love and vanr." Parthenia stood alone in the recess of a window, and watched the mot ley crowd surging through Mrs. Kent's lofty rooms. Hapless Marie Stuart and a "Hea then Chinee," Sir WalterRaleigh and Red Riding Hood, Richelieu and Lit tle Nell floated serenely by. "lAh, you have come at last! Parthienia started suddenly at the whispered words, and turned to con front a tall, fur-clad Ingomar. "Hav-e you no word for me, nua belle'?" "Yes: but not here." She spoke very low, and in French She took his arm, and together they passed to a room made familiar to both in their social visits-the li brary. Trhe room was long, silent, dimly lit. As yet, it was too early for the dancers to wander off in search of cooler air, so they were undisturbed. Once there, lie turned and faced her in that mellow half-light which left the corners mystically dim. eie toow b hits mtsk, cid Wei 4 decidedly handaomi, 4ecidedly ev il face. "My Parthenia, how beautiful you look." The expression was involuntary. Beautiful indeed was the statesque figure, in neat simple, severe, ex quisite dress which challenges the many, adorns the few-the Greek costume. The soft white robes fell in grace ful, classic folds to her feet-the jheavy staff she takes when she gites her lover the flowers held carelessly in one hand-the helmet, the shield, all glittering in the dim light. "Why do you not speak to me, Elsie, my love ?" "Keep such a title for lanthe How ard." She spoke rapidly, and still in his own tongue, the better to disguise her voice. "Ianthe Howard," he repeated. "What is ,he to me ? I told' you I loved you two years ago. I love you still. Elsie, darling, be sure of that, and do not think too hard of me when you know what an avaricious wretch I am. If only you had her fortune, Take off that jealous mask. You start! Ah, my love, do not blame ime too much. Remember, you only hold my heart, if need obli ges me to take advantage of Miss Iloward's foolish intatuation for me, and marry her-bank account." "'Pray. do not so far inconvenience yourself, Mr. )D'Esterre. That fool islh fancy is dead forever. And lantlhe Howard cahuly laid down hem mask on the ebony centre table. * Great Heaven-lanthe!" *'Yes. Permit me to return the pledge of a false vow." And, in her proud, silent way, she drew off a sparkling solitaire and laid it quietly down. "And permit me to say you have made more than one mistake to night, Jean D'Esterre." And from out of a shadowy corner came the bright figure of a vivan dierre. Then one man felt the full misery his disloyalty and deceit had brought him, as lanthe Howard and Elsie Gaudet passed together from the room. united in their triumph over treachery-the woman lie had loved for her money and the woman lie had loved for herself. And to-cay, lautlhe knows that her life and love lie sacredly in theThands of an honest gentleman, and ithanks God, from the depths of her true wo man's heart, for the happiness that bloomed and blossomed out of her girlhood's sorrow. THE PROFESSIONAL LONDON BEAUTIES. Londnn c(or. c(incinnati Enequirer. i saw Mrs. Langtry the other even ing at the opera on the occasion of thm first performance of Rubinstein's opera of II Demonio. She sat with her back to the stage during the en time evening, having evidently come there to be seen, and not to see. The Jersey Lily looks worn and faded, and her p~ale-gray toilet lacked the showy splendor that used to clharac terize her costumes in former days. I never admired her even when I tirst knew her in the very height of her renown. How any face could be considered handsome witlh that broad, heavy jaw was to ine a mystery. And then she always lacked the sn piecne charm of beauty, namely un consciousness, whether real or feign ed. She is always attitudinizing, and always on the look-out for admirers. The IPrince of Wales droliped in to visit her in one of the cntr' acts, but His Highness had a cold ini his head, aliparentliy, as lie -passed nearly the whole of tIme period of his visit in a series of vehement and most unroyal sueezes. T'hie beauty of time present London season is said to be a Mrs. Simpson, who, with her husband, has just returned from e five years' resi deuce in China. There is also a Miss Graham, who has a most lovely face, but who spoils her very undeniable charms by tIme too free use of cosmet ics. However, I thiniit thatthe epoch of professional beauty in London so ciety is pretty much at an endl, which is fortunate for society. J. J.
