curtains of marvelous tts i priceless worth, could be ieel mergy dances asthey swept a ly by in the sensuous mesa of walts, fair young facelald against shotlder blades, 'and beaMti, ful form's encircled Ily strong, manly arnims, that would gladly have held thbem forever, and sheltered the from tihe stormsthat life, however fel it seems, must bring to all. Nearly twelve months ago these Stwositting in the window, had pilght .d their troth. Violet Caryll was the only daughter of a purse proud millionaire, and accustomed to every , luzury that money could purchase, 'while Adelbert Jones was only apoor book-keeper, with no chance to steal Sanything and get ahead in the world. He had come to the soiree dtiante given by Violet's father in honor of her nineteenth birthday, and had wandered with her to the bay win dow, where, secure from observation, they might talk of the all absorbing passion that bound their hearts to gether in the fetters of love.. S"I have been thinking of you, dar ,lig, all theday," said Violet, in a low, 'sweet voice, the very modulations of which told better than words of how her irhole being was wrapped up in the love she bore the strong limbed young man whose eyes looks into here with such tender expression. "I have not been here at all, but away, away- I hardly know where. Only in the land my footsteps have linger ed in all day, I never cried for, love that-did not come, nor telt hungered for love's own4 gifts, nor felt lonely nor desolate, nor :afraid. Because, beneath the turquoise skiesofmy mys tical dreamland, in the rose laden air, love was alwatys with rme; love with strong arms and clinging kisses and deat'hless tenderness. And I know no loneliness, nor sorrow, nor heart break." "But youi do not doubt my love, sweetheart?" lie nmurmnured, bending over her with loverlike tenderness and kissin, softly the wine-red lips thatoverhlng th, nse n.t.ive, drooping. moutlh. "No," she said, looking at I?el with proud, love lit eyes, while a winsome smile4lient additional beauty to the fair face. "Ido not doubt you for an Instant, only when I am lonely and s sad, and then I think some one more Sbeautiful tlhan I may win you from me. I know that, I amn not beautiful, Adelderr. and in my ijealonl moments it Comne1 t1o I1ue withi a great throb 'the owet' of beauty over ia maln.

The noise attracted the attentionm of her tather, who was-passing by, and he pnshel aside the curtain anden-i tered. '"Ha.d' n;iiich .will ,~, liOv window cost? sahitlld Mi.

There was 110o change, partic ularly. except to move the plows and shovels around a little, put on a few riotre bars of pig lead, put a new fags ioned necktie on the sailor who hold~ the rope, the emblem of lynch law, tuck the miner's breeches into his boots a little further, and amputate the tail of the' badger. We do not ,are thr the othpr changes,, as they were only intended to give the en gravers ajob, but when an irresponsi ble legislature amputates the tail of the hIadger, the emblem of the demo cratic party,. that crawls into a hole and pulls the hole in after him, it touches us in our patriotismo.

SAu excellent lesson was given to a lady well-known" i s-isicty ais a pro fessional beauty and flirt. Her fa vorite ainusement was to flirt with young married men in a manner just sufficient to make their wives uncom fortable without compr mising her self in the eyes of the orld. At a party she had tried the whole power of her fascination upon a gentleman who had not been many months mar ried, and had monopolized his society nearly the whole evening. As the night waned, and he seemed to be yielding to her fascinations, she be came more and mere sentimental, and even tender. i t "Aih! Col. E.," she said, "what a passion love is! How few men there are who can truly feeland realize the wlhole force of a woman's love and give in return that ardent aflectio swered the Colonel. "There is one whonm I prize above all, and whom I truly believe to be the loveliest wo man on e;arth."
