suspiciously near baldness upon the crown a
peculiarly pallid complexion, very handsome
moustache, well-waxed and gloaay, and, aa he
lifted them, juat then two very liquid and lan

"Yes, they are brown," he said, mentally,
as ho met her glance. Aloud: "I think your
pail is quite as full as it was before
mademoiselle. I shall take pleasure in assist

And his glance and smile, and the perfect
modulation of his voice, was as delightful to
Lisle Ashley as it had been to a score—nay, to a
liuudred—women before her.
"I—I thank you," she stammered "but I
have ouough for tea now, and it is late, and I
must go."
"But yon have not enough for tea if I take
tea with you," aaid our hero, with a respect
ful demoanor, which was one of Richard
Westbrook's most iking qualitiea with the
If a man's manner, glance and tone are only

"Vou sec," he continued, in anawer to her
look of surprise. "1 am lost I left a party of
friends this forenoon, and wandered through
the woods in search of game, uutil I am 00m-

muat have supper eoon or perish. I have no
idea how tar I am from Benton atation, where I
was to join my friends at 7 o'clock. And now it
is ft."
"Oh, said Lisle, looking vary sympathetic
indeed, "you are to be pitied. You are five
miles from Benton station, and yon must be
hungry, I know. Well, weU, you may go home
with me—it is just half a mile from hero. And
Ruth will have supper ready, I know and you
will be welcome. And the hired man ia going
to Benton Falls this evening. You can ride
with liim."
"But my train goes at 7."
"Well, there ia auother at ft AndJeolmay
go earlv enough to getup there for the 7 o'clock
train. 'I will help him with the cows so ho can
get off."
Richard glanced down at the elender hands
and wrists.
"Yonmilk cows? Impossible!" he said.
"Oh, I do not make a bnaineaa of it," Lisle
answered calmly "but I can do it when oc
casion requires. I would not be a thoroughly
gonuiue country girl if I could not Nowhere
is a fence to clnnb. Will yon pleaae go firat
and then help me over!"*
"I thought country girla alwaya leaped
fence," said Richard, as he aprang lightly 1
and gave lier liis hand.
"They can do it but they do not always dis
play their agility on every occasion," usle re
torted, as she stepped to the ground at his side.
'There iB Uncle William's house—that red one
over yonder. And the white cloth is hanging
out of the attic wimlow to tell the men in the
lioy-field that supper will be ready aa soon aa
they can get down to tho house."
"How delightfully primitive life is out here!"
mused Richard. "I-feel as if I was in another
world from tho one I left this morning."
"Yon are from Lake llesort, I snppose?
"Yes. I have lieon there a week my home
is in Albany, New York. I was induced to come
to Lake Resort on account of the iisli and gaine
111 neighlioriiig localities. But I came out here
this morning and have tramped all day and
never shot a bird."
"You have tried though," said Liale, mis
chievously. "But here we are now: please
take a scat on the veranda in the Bhade while
I tell Aunt llutli we have company to tea and
help lier pick over tlie lierries."
"What a charming, fresh, unspoiled child of
nature she is!" thought Richanl as she disap
peared. "Sweet eyes and mouth and a pretty
figure, and so simple and unaffected. Ah!
that is what attracts a inau after he is worn
out with the artifices of tlie world and disgus
ted with tho shains or society. What an ideal
life one could lead here with such a companion
as that, far from all the din aud turmoil and
strife of the world."
"Tea- is ready, sir," a very sweet voice an
nounced "walk this way if you please. I sup
pose you would like to wash your face aud
hands, perhaps. You may step into auntie'a
room at tlie left here."

How pretty and reetfnl and homelike the
rooms were how dreamily the sound of the
"mowers" came in through the open window
how motherly Aunt ltiith appeared in her big
apron, as she greeted him witu cordial simplic
ity, touched with a slight awe of his city ori
gin how charming tho table appeared to his
hungry eyes, with its healthy couutry fare!
"You liad latter sit right down—you and
Lisle," said Aunt Ruth. "Joel will be gettiu'
off to town now, about i, he says, if it'll ac
commodate you any, and the meu'llbe here in
a few minutes, so it'll be pleasanter for you to
have your tea before they come."
And Richard sat down to a tete-a-tete tea
with Lisle, in her print gown and with her
slight)} sunburned face, guiltless of powder,
and enjoyed it more than any stately dinner
which he ever attended, where ladies lured
him with lieuutiful faces and sumptuous cos
tumes and glittoriug jewels.
Then in cameUucle William with his loud
voice and his buriy frame, to break the spell,
and half a dozen red-farad aud perspiring rami
hands with liim.
"Storm coming up from the nor'west," he
said. "Guess my liay'U catch it but I've only
a half-day's mowiug down. All the rest up in
snug stacks at noon. Neighbor Brown has throe
acres lying yet I'm lucky for once. Whew!
there couies tbe thunder! A regular night of
it, I guess wo'U have."
Ho it proved Joel could not go to "town," aa
tlie little station live mile* distant was designat
ed, aud tlie night set iu storming furiously.
Richard, not at all reluctantly, accepted the
cordial invitation to remaiu until morning. A
traiu went to Lake Resort at ft, but aa at that
hour it still rained, he turned over upon his
comfortable couch and concluded to wait until
Ho was in no haste to leave Usle Ashley's
sweet presence.
He idled away the day in a delicious fashion.
Lisle sat over a great basket mending, while he
read loud, or talked to lier in bis rich,'thrilling
voice of foreigu lands and people.
"How well sho listens. So few people pos
sess that accomplishment, too," ne thought,
and he found sho had read a great deal, and
been several years at school in a distant city.
When J10 went away that evening he asked
her if he might send her some nice hooka to
"I have stacks of them," he said, "which it
seems selfish in mo to keep in trunks now I
have read them. You might as well enjoy
them, snd I would feel then that I was doing
something toward a return for all your kind
So he sent tho books, aud a note with
of course and of course Lisle replied, ai
letters followed for several weeks. And then
be ran down to Benton station to pass Sunday
at "Uucle William's" farm.
After that he came down every week or two
until Octobcr. Tliey read, and talked, aud
walked aud drove together, and it waa all
Heaven to Lisle and a veritable Eden to Richard.
He was deeply^ love with the girl's inno
cence, sweetness and unaffected good sense.
He was faciuated with the repose and calm ot
this quiet retreat, so unlike the rest of hia whole
life. Ho felt as if he could live and die ahappy
and contented man with Lisle his only Com
panion if he could remain here.
But the world, his business duties, lay else
where—iu a world of commerce and fashion—
aud he did uot ask Lisle to share that world
with hint.
He went back to Albany in October without
having committed himself yet knowing that ho
loved aud was beloved by Lisle.
All liis happiness he found in her letters.
Other women seemed false and fictitloUB when
compared to her.
Still he could nevor think of her in these
circles where he had beem reared. Her simple
grace aud unaffected manner would seem i,Ita

His eyes followed her wherever she moved.
Such eaay grace, such an unconscious air of
her own loveliness, such fine conversational
abilities as she possessed. Senator Itomain
was heard to say that she was one of tlie most
thoroughly charming women he ever met
And she was one of tbe Joreiiest, it seemed to
Richard. Her fashionablecoiffure, her elegant
toilet, the touch of powder on her complexion,
completely transformed the pretty rustle to a
beautiful belle.
Richard's heart swelled with pride and pain.
Why had he been so tardy? Why was she not
his acknowledged fianceo now? Why, indeed!
He had no opportunity to soe her alone that
evening. But on taking his leave he asked if
he might call the following afternoon.
"Yes, she would bo charmed to see him"
He called at tlie appointed hour, to find Sen
ator Bomaiu just before him, and two other
callers .came later.
She entertained all graciously, but Bichard
left without a tete-a-tete.
He was obliged to return to Albany that even
ing, and business detained him there several
days. When he returned again he found her
goue out for a drive with Senator Itomain.
Mrs. Metcalf, her hostess, entertained him
with a maddening account of the brilliant sena
tor's devotion.

Then there came a brief letter tolling him
that she waa about to start to New York city
on a visit to an old achoolmato.
"She went abroad two years ago and made a
aomewliat romantic marriage a year later,"
Lisle wrote. "She has since returned, and haa
all wintor been urging mo to visit her. I hope
you will find time to run np and call while I
am there."
Richard laid down the letter with almoat a

that evening, he found a handsomely engraved
card awaiting him, asking bis presence at N&

He did not make any attempt to see her be

had arisen between him and the idol of his
dreams, which rendered him slightly afraid of
It waa with a great deal of trepidation and
many fears that he presented himself on the
evening appointed at No. l'-iHO.
When he entered—he was late—he found
himself in the midst of a brilliant circle of eo
ciety people—many of them his intimate ac
And presently he descried the object of hia
search across the hall conversing easily with
Senator Roiuain, the moat intellectual man of
bis circle.
Yet, it was Lisle. She waa dressed in a
beautiful trailing garment of rich material,
which fitted her round figure perfectly, dis
closing her lovely throat aud bare arms. She
wielded a handsome fan with skilled grace, and
charmed the brilliant senator with her accom
plished art of listening, aa well as with her
bright repartee.
Just aa Richard approached her, her hostess
advanced from an opposite direction, and with
out seeing him, or not conscious that he had
not yet paid his respects to her gncst, bore her
off to some new suppliant for her favor.
It was half an hour before JUchard found an
opportunity to reach her aide. Then he had
only time to give her the formal greetings of
the evening, to hold her gloved hand one mo
ment, to meet hor calm, sweet gaze with re
proving, aearching eyes before she was again
called away.
She was asocial success, and became im
mensely popular.
"So naive, so bright, so simple and child
like, so cute," were a few of tne expressions
Richard heard applied to her, as the evening
wore on.
"A wild rose In a hot-house atmosphere," he
thought "How long before she will lose her
sweetness and freshness, I wonder. Ah, how
lovely she is! I never dreamed she could be so
lovely. And vet I wonld rather see her in her
print gown. How dare these people discuss
her so, my own wild rose—my love!"
days in her qniet dress and with
her still ways, and in the eveuing she would
astonish us all by her exouisite toilets and
brilliant manners. The society youths and
the staid old intellectual professors were equal
ly wild over her. I always thought she would
make a brilliant marriage. 1 have beon urging
her for a vear to coine to New York,
but she was fasciuated some way with that
lonely country nook where her uncle resides.
I am ao glad I dragged hor out of it, and

cease talking.
But bbw amazed he waa to find that the lit
tle rustic, whom he had feared to present to
his circle of fashisnable friends, was a belle
who had always been able to shine in society.
Ho went home and wrote her a very hnmble
ttlo note, asking her to bo kind enough to
appoint an hour when she wonld be at liberty
to see him "without hor satellites."

Lisle ever could have caressed his letters in
her lonely daya upon the farm.
Yet, when be called it was a very stately
young lady who greeted him,with Hrs. Metcalf at
lier side and Mrs. Metcalf never left the room
for one moment.
Lisle waa cordial and gracious, yet Bichard
felt as if a thousand miles lay between him
and this girl, whose charm and sweetness and
worth he had been conscious of for many
mouths, bnt whose eutire suitability for the
station of hia wife he had doubted, or at least,
bad questioned.
And now he wonld have given half hia life to
know that be could win ber.
Had he lost forever tho golden oppotunity
for perfect happiness by his tardineaa and
blindness and stupidity?
So it seemed. Hia efforts to aee her alone
proved unavailing. Some one waa alwaya
present when he called. Sometimes Senator
Bomain, always Mrs Metcalf.

and disapproval
"1 desired Mrs. Metcalf to assist me in enter
taining all my callers," she said.
"You were not alwaya ao conventional," he
retorted "and I see no need of it now."
Her face flushed slowly.
"Customs in country farmhouses do not cor
respond with those in conventional sooiety,
you know," she replied. "Besides, 1 rogre
having disobeyed tho strict demands of custom
heretofore, and shall strive to make amends in
the future."
And then she aaked Bichard if ho had seen
the uew painting Mrs. Metcalf had just pur
chased, and so changed the conversation. He
left her, wondering if he was tbe victim of
some strauge nightmare, or if this reserved and
conventional yonng belle, of whom be stood in
such fear, was one and tho same with the sweet
girl whom he In^seen picking wild berries a
few montha before, and whose tender, heart
broken letters used to bring tho tears to hia
eyes in pity of himself now.
He heard rumors of hor engagement to Sen
ator Bomain as the days wore on, and be made
up hia mind to go abroad and to go without
trying to see her again.
He eould not bear tlie confirmation from her
own lips-of the report, and yet he should feel
compelled to refer to it if he saw her.
So be wrote her his farewell. Thia waa hia

before leaving. My meetings with you are too
painful when contrasted with past interviews.

Extravagance in Uviag.
In Harper's Magazine such crimes a*
those of Ferdinand Ward, while they
spring often from depravity, are oftener
the result of mere weakness of charac
ter. Thackeray in many of his minor
sketches constantly draws the portrait
of the man and woman whose means
are not equal to the style of living which
they desire and they desire it not for it
self, but only because others have it.
They are not strong and steady enough
to be content with that which they can
command and afford, and the means tc
secure the other must somehow be ob
tained. Thackeray puts the fact in the
simplest and most amusing form. The
young couple must give a dinner, and in
stead of the joint of lamb and the glass of
beer which is the only repast to which
they have the moral right to invite a
friend—if, indeed, tbe beer may be mor
ally permitted—they most needs pre
pare a feast which they can not honor
ably afford, and for the sole reason that
other people who can afford it give such
It is this doing a little more, or a
great deal more, than the doer can
honestly aflord, which leads to the
swindles of Wall street. Living in a
house too expensive for his means, main
taining it accordingly, dressing as his
richer neighbors dress, doing in all
things as they do—it is this weak som
pliance which is hidden in the fine
houses, and drives to tlie park in the
fine equipages, which presently ends in
Ludlow Street Jail and hopeless dis
grace. Yet it is the poorest kind oi
competition, because the little imitatoi
might nee even with his dull eyes that
there must alwayR be a few persons who
can "do the thing" better than all the
rest, and without feeling it. The bull
frog may swell until he bursts, but he
can not rival the ox.
Thisis the tendency which all sensi
ble people—and a great many other
wise sensible people are swept away by
it—ought quietly to resist. The power
of individual example is immense, but
it is often underestimated by the indi
vidual. 'My vote is of no consequence,
but, since you wish if, I will vote," said
a man to his neighbor, and the right
candidate was elected by a majority oi
one. The family which in the midst of
a saturnalia of luxury and extravagance
refuse to take part in it, and holds to a
simple, moderate, temperate way, is
diminishing the supply of Ferdinand
Wards and Wall street panics.

Howard A. Easton, of Philadelphia,

In Decembor following the editor ot
the ''drawer* waa seated with two other
gentlemen in a library in New York.
OneUtf them said: I heard a good «tory
the other day from a friend of mine who
ba* jart returned from Europe. Going
down the Danube from Pestn last sum

the journey did not seem to interest hitn
the Prussian said: No I'm on my wed
ding tour, and I could not afford to
bring my .wife."
The editor of the "drawer" said that
it was a good story, and that he began
to think it was true,as it was confirmed
by so many independent witneaaea.
Thereupon he took from hi* pocket a
letter which be had reoeived that morn
ing from Pari*. In it the writer, a gen
tleman of culture and travel, aaid that a
(curious incident happened to Mm last
summer. He and hi* wife were on a
Rhine steamer, when they noticed a
melancholy passenger whom all the
beauties of tire scenery failed to rouse
from his dejection. He waa an object
of interest to them all the morning, and
at length he wife'a sympathy was *o
much excitedthat she proposed to go
and speak to the malaneholy stranger
and learn the cause of his sadness.
The husband Mid that would be a fool
ish thing to do, and she might get into
trouble. But the wife instated (for
though American women have little
curiosity they have warm hearte), aad
crossed over to where the stranger
stood, and aeoosted him, and they en*
gaged in conversation. In a. few min
utes the lady returned, laughing.
"What is it?" asked the husband.
"Why, the man is a south German.
He says that he is on his wedding trip,'
and couldn't afford to bring hia wife."
The editor then related the
original true story as it waa
told him by the T. A. clergyman.
So it appeared, on unimpeachable
testimony, that the same strange inci
dent happened in the experienoe oi
three persons the same year—one near
Chicago, one on the Rhine, the other
on the Danube. Did it happen to any
one of these veracious people? When
the editor had raised this question, the
third number of the party, who had
been silent and who had not intefered
with the story in any way, said: "I can
tell you the real original of that story.
