A LOVE STORY.
O, Hy that dreary book Away, And list to me O, list to me! While wanes the purple o( the day, A story I will teU to thee. Lav not the book away in rath. With longing look or feigned eight; Ton know you'd rather read the truth Within the iris of my eyea. The swift air murmured silver dear, A moment since, M She oonifcs to thee ; Tour pulses told you 1 was near, So (ion t pretend yon do not see. My brief, brief story never rare, la only sweet as it is true ; O, dont pretend you do not care, When all the while you know yon do. For from the winy warmth of spring A fancy flashed in ruby gleams You'd teach my heart a deeper thing Than it had ever dreamed in dreams." Well, I have learned your lesson now. Have learned it all O, look and see ! The brief sweet lesson in your vow You said your heart would teach to me Man, eager in his quest for power, For fame, to live for evermore, WtU always use a vagrant hour To teach a woman love's dear lore ; For, after all, the praise afar, Acclaim that pierces aisle or dome, Is never dear as voices are That tell him he ia loved at home. Tin hardly worth your while to-day To look so very, very wise ; You'll lay that dull old book away To read the story in my eyes, To list the story on my tongue. The one you wish to bear from ma, The story sweet if said or sung "I love but thee, 1 love but thee," HOW SHE WAS RIGHTED. " Have yon any references ?" " No, niattom, I am a stronger in the city. But if yon would only try me !" "there was an appealing look in the soft gray eyes, and a qrriver of the nether lip that went straight to Mrs. May field's heart. She looked again at the applicant. She was dressed plainly, yet neatly in black ; but the look of settled sorrow that appeared in the curve of her mouth, and in ner sad eyes, might or might not be wnolly occasioned py me loss ol inenas. Altogether there was an air of re finement about her that marked- her as a lady, and one not used to brave the world alone. Mrs. Mayfield was at bottom a kind- hearted woman ; and after some hesita tion, and with misgivings that were natu ral to one governed rather by custom and the opinions of others than her own judgment, she finally consented to re ceive the new governess on trial, and Miss Compton entered immediately upon her duties. Mrs. Mayfield was pleased to find that the children took to her kindly ;. and when she saw with what cheerfulness the governess entered into all of their childish pursuits, and her tact in everything, she felt a sense of quiet satisfaction in her choice. " I believe that we shall like her ever go much, Tom," she said to her cousin, Mr. Harkworth. " She seems to take such an interest in the children, and she is really an accomplished musician. got her to play for me this morning while 1 was feeling somewhat unwell. " I am getting quite impatient to see your paragon," replied Tom. "Do trot her out, lib, as soon as conven ient" Mr. " Harkworth was lounging in an easy chair, with an air of perfect com fort, listlessly glancing over the paper. The words were scarcely out of his mouth when the door opened, and Miss Compton appeared on the threehiiold. There was a momentary hesitation, a slight opening of the eyes, and just a suspicion of heightened color in the cheeks, and then the governess advanced with quiet self-possession. With Tom the effect was electric. All appearance of ennui disappeared in an instant, and upon presentation by his cousin he bowed with all the deference - he would have shown to the finest lady in the land. This was the beginning of Miss Comp ton's life in her new position. She proved herself eminently qualified as an instructress, and her lady-like bearing and modest retirement won lor her the esteem and confidence of her employer. ' Delicacy of feeling prevented Mrs, Mayfield from trying to penetrate the "serve with which ahe spoke of her early nfe, and all that was known of her was that her father hod died leaving her un - provided for, and that she had chosen to rely upon her own efforts rather than be dependent upon relatives. As for Tom, he was a marked man from the first; only ho was shrewd enough to conceal his feelings from his consin, whose devotion to Mrs. Grundy might interfere with his purposes. If he seemed to take an unusual interest in the children, it was all in such an off hand manner as to attract no attention. At the same time his treatment of Miss Compton, while it was lacking in no de gree in respect, was so familiar and free from anything like restraint, as to awak en in Mrs. Mayfield's mind not the slightest suspicion of his true feelings. One day Mrs. Mayfield went out, ac companied by her children, but leaving Miss Compton in her boudoir in charge of the baby. Upon her return she found her governess in a state of nervous agita tion. She left the room somewhat hur riedly, evidently to cover her discom posure. As Mrs. Mayfield stepped to nor dressing-table, shej discovered her portmonnaie lying open and several bills beside it. " How careless I am !" she said, hasti ly replacing the money in the pocket book, and putting it into her pocket. And then: "I wonder what was the matter with Miss Compton ;.she seemed disturbed. There must be some trouble in her life, poor soul 1" Presently the door bell rang. It was a milliner's girl with a new bonnet for Mrs. Mayfield. The lady was pleased with it, and took out her portmonnaie to pay for it. She had the money all counted out and rolled up. Upon counting it again before handing it to the girl, she was surprised to find it five dollars short. There was no other mon ey in her purse except some small change. Sho ran up stairs and looked on her dressing table, where the money had lain. It was not there, and further search proved fruitless. The lady colled to her governess had she seen any money lying about ? Miss Compton had not Sho joined m the renewed search, and seemed disturbed that the missing bill was not found. " Never mind, it may come to light," said Mrs. Mayfield ; but, as such things always do, it left a feeling of dissatisfac tion on her mind. later in the day a visitor called. Af ter exhausting all other items of gossip, she said : " And your governess. It ia sod, isn't it, that she should be anoyed by such a fellow ?" Mrs. Mayfield looked puzzled. "Ah, Miss Compton ?" "Yes. Ho has just broke jail. Didn't you notice it in last evening's paper? It is terrible to have such relatives." Mrs. May field was more mystified than ever. " Her relative ? I don't know tliat I understand you. Miss Compton has been somewhat reserved in speaking of her people and her life before coming here." "Is it possible that you don't know ?" The visitor's eyes dilated with aston ishment, and Mrs. Mayfield colored slightly at her ignorance of the antece dents of her governess. " Miss Compton cume to mo a stranger in the place, and without references " "And yon took her in without know ing" Tho enormity of the thing seemed to overcome the visitor, and she broke off without giving the enlightenment that would hove relieved her auditor's out growing curiosity. "She appeared like a lady, and seemed in distress," began Miss Compton's employer, by way of extenuation. " Why, bless your dear heart I" cried her gnost, 'f if we took in every one who looked like a lady or gentleman, we ejjgnjd all lje murdered in our beds !" "I am sure there can be nothing ter rible connected with Miss Compton," said Mrs. Mayfield, with apprehension awakened by the words and manner ol the other. Havo yon yesterday a paper r asked the visitor. She had an eye to dramatic effect, and knew that every moment of suspense was fitting her auditor for tho hnal denouement Mrs. Mayfield remembered that the paper was in her boudoir, and sent for it Whem it was brought the visitor pointed to a paragraph among the " dis patches for the Associated rress, ana said impressively: " Head that I With some trepidation Mrs. Mayfield complied. "IvEW lOBK, i UIV The noted defaulter, John Compton, whose annrehension recently cost oar dotectives so much time and ingenuity, has managed to elude the vigilance of his keepers and is again at large." .. . . When the lady raised her eyes from tue paper the oilier said: " That is ner brother l "Impossible !" cried Mrs. Mayfield : nevertheless 'she was fully satisfied of the truth of the statement "I always supposed you were in formed in the matter when you took her." "What ! place my children knowingly in the charge of a person of such disrep- uatble connections i " O. of course, she may bo none the worse on that account ; only fancy his coming to her for money, or to be secret ed until the heat of the search for him was over. I have road of such things. Uffh!" And the lady snudderca at uie Dare idea. Like a flash. Mrs. Mayfield s mind re verted to the missing five dollar bill and Miss Compton's agitation. With the readiness of many another of her turn of mind, she " put this and that togeth er, "and jumped at & very rational con-' elusion that she was harboring a monster. It was all clear to her. The culprit had fled from the metropolis and come imme diately to his aid. She, to eke out ner little store, hod been tempted to appro priate some of her employer's money. When Tom came he was met by a very solemn face. - ' ' "Halloo, Lib 1 What's up? Has the baby got the measles, or have you got rain ou your new bonnet, or " Don't trifle, Tom," said his cousin. " The case is a serious one." "Well, out with it There's nothing half so terrible as suspense. Tom was ased to his cousin, and ex pected nothing more than a very moder ate sized mountain. "Tom I have every reason to believe that we have been harboring a most un grateful woman. I am forced to suspect Miss Compton of dishonesty. The idea struck Tom as so absurd that he went off in a roar of laughter. " O, lib 1" he cried when he could fetch breath, "letup! That's the big gest bugaboo yet Has sho made off with the plate Few of us can with eqarininiity bear being laughed at Mrs." Mayfield col ored. "Your merriment cannot alter the fact" she cried. "Nonsense, lib ! What can have led you to such an absurd suspicion ? " I left a roll of bills on my dressing- table when we went out to drive, and up on my return one of the rolls was miss ing. There was no one in the room but Miss Compton and baby: How will you explain that I " Why, yon made a mistake in count ing the money, and left less than you supposed?" "Didn't you give mo thirty dollars this morning ?" "Yes." ' " Well, just before going to drive I counted out enough to pay for my bon net and left it lying on the table beside my porte-monnaie. The rest I put into the inside pocket, and it is there just as I left it" - " Might not the bill have blown out of the window?" " Miss Compton sat in the window the distance was too great, and there was not draft suftWent." " She may have left the room a mo ment, and one of the servants entered and taken the money." " They were both out She and baby were tho only persons in the house dur ing our absence." "Any way," said Tom, with a frown, and the air of a man who discredits for no better reason than because he is de termined not to believe, " it's preposter ous to think for a moment that Miss Corn ton is capable of a petty theft Where is she?" " In her room, I presume," replied Mrs. Mayfield, with the quiet satisfac tion of one who had beaten the enemy at every point " Of course you have not insulted her by letting your suspicion be known ?" " I have said nothing to her since she helped me in the fruitless search for the bill" Tom frowned. "And, Tom." Mrs. Mayfield had reserved a cap her climax. "Well?" "Bead that" And she pointed ont the newspaper paragraph. When she saw that he had read it she said simply : " Her brother 1" Tom frowned again. "lib," ho said, "you'd moke an'ex cellent detective. It's a pity your sex shuts you out from so congenial a field of action." Mrs. Mayfield smiled quietly. She could afford to be tolerant Sho would not quarrel with the patient for making a wry face over a bitter pill. " At any rate," said Tom, " don't act hastily in this matter. The bill may turn up, but then it may 'be too late to heal the wound you may inflict by undue precipitation." With that ho left tho room. Miss Compton did not appear at the tea-tablo. Mrs. Mayfield looked signifi cantly across at her cousin, but he sat looking doggedly down into his plate. In the evening, while working in the garden in moody thought lie suddenly cams face to face with the governess. She had a shawl thrown over her head, and was hastening toward the house. Upon seeing him sho started back,.aud would have avoided him ; but ho was at her side in au instant, a recollection of Mrs. Mayfield's suspicion of her meeting her brother flashing through his mind. " Miss Compton !" Sho turned upon him, and grasped his arm almost fiercely. . " Do you believe her ?" she demanded. " I heard her telling you." " Then you must have heard my re ception of her absurd suspicion." " That is true," replied the governess, with an air of relief. " Miss Compton," said Tom, taking her hand, " I cannot express my regret that you should havo rverheard my consin, who, at best, ia but a woninu easily influenced by outward appear ances. But since you did hear her, am about to provo to you that in my mind, at least, not a shadow of suspicion rosts against you. Miss Compton Jessie let mo eall you so I lovo you, and nnk you to be my wife !" With a sharp cry, sho snatched her hand awny, and broke from him. " Don't ! don't !" sho cried. " I am satisfied that you bclievo in niy inno cence in this case ; but,, aside from this, I am unworthy of you. Do not enter tain the thought for a moment" " Jessie, I know all ; but, if you return my love, I will brave the opinion of the world. O, let me stand between you and it ! Give me the right to be your pro tector," " No, no, Mr. HorkwciJ'th. I cannpt accept the sacrifice yonj generosity would prompt yon to majie. J jjannnt drag you down with me. And now let me pass, please." " Jessie, is this your final answer ? " Yes, final It must be so," she said in a broken voice. "One moment" he said. "Do not think that I give you up. I do not be lieve 1 am indinercnt to you, and some day I shall renew my suit" With that he stepped aside and let her The next morning Mrs. Mayfield's maid came to her and said : Just see, ma'am, . what I found in baby's clothes." And she put into the lady s hand a crumpled five dollar note. It was muti lated and wet, indicating that it must have been in the child s mouth. Dear me !" said Mrs. Mayfield, with a look of distress, " it must have blown down on the floor, where baby could get it Then he got it into his mouth and afterward dropped it down into the bosom of his dress. It must have been overlooked in undressing him." She hastened with the bill and her ex planation to Tom." He compressed his "P8- . . ..... This is very poor salvo for the pain your tongue caused her yesterday, he said, gravely. " 1 m sure I didn t mean to be unjust, said Mrs. Mayfield, with a whimper. Then she ran to Miss Compton's room t J apologize. The chamber was empty. A note explained the matter. " Of course. I cannot stay under your roof with the suspicion of theft resting upon me. JLhe money due me will more than repay you the amount you suspect me of having stolen from you the injustice of which may never be known save to God and myself. Do not think" th"t I entertain, hard feelings toward you. I do not Appearances are certainly against me. Sut my useful ness would end with the loss of your con fidence, and hence I go. Jessie Comp ton. Mrs. Mayfield wept over the note. Tom put it into his pocket without com ment He immediately employed private detective and hunted her up. " Miss Compton," he said, "it would be only generous in yon to return and receive my cousin's apologies." When he had carried his point and Mrs. Mayfield hod again and again begged Jessie s pardon with tears, he said : " You cannot bettor show your perfect forgiveness than by consenting to retain your position. That was purely selfish. However, he was ably seconded by Mrs. Maynold, and between them they almost con strained compliance with their wishes. Tom hod a quiet laugh in his sleeve, noting his cousin's enthusiasm, and thinking how it would be cooled down by a little peep into his mind. While they were talking a tragedy was being enacted in another part of the city. A fucitive from justice, being hard pressed by the police, shot himself rather than be captured. Tom took charge of the body of John Compton, and secured for.it decent burial. Six months' after that he shocked his cousin and the devotees of Mrs. Grundy generally by marrying Mrs. Mayfield's governess. Air Walking. ; Richard Sands, a well-known circus performer and manager, was the first to perform tho feat popularly known as ceihng-walking. In looz he performed it at Drury Lone Theater, London, Eng., and tlfe apparatus used and his per formances were thus described : "From two lofty draped supports was placed a temporary ceiling, UU feet in length, and consisting of a stout timber framing, with a smooth surface ; at each end was a slung seat and beneath the ceiling was a net provided in case of accident Air. Sands prepared himseli by lacing san dals over his boots, to which were at tached brass loops ; and these were con nected by springs with a pair of platter like soles, in which lay the secret as they were brought to the theater in a locked box, . and conveyed away with similar caution at the close of the per formance. Mr. Sands commenced by ascending by a ladder to one of the slung scats, and, lying upon his back by aid of tho ropes, placed his platter-shod feet upon tho ceiling, then gently detached himself, and very slowly walked across tiie platform, occasionally poising him self on one leg. Thus ho reached the seat at tho opposite end, and descended by the ladder." He subsequently suc ceeded in walking upon a large slab of polished marblo. The platter-like soles above described were made of soft leather and . moistened with water. These, when pressed firmly by the feet, so as to expel the air, enabled the per former to maintain his hold upon the slab, and by a movement of the foot a valve was opened and forced be neath tho leather, so that the soles could be readily detached from the polished surface. It was simply a scien tific application of the principle mani fested in the child's toy commonly called "a sucker." Waht Lace Costs. If it is no longer worn by men over the tops of their boots, there are still wedding orders received at Alencon for $30,000 worth at a time, and. considera ble, though smaller, sums are expended at Honiton, in Devonshire. For Valen ciennes, made at Tpres, $50 per metre is paid, but the lace-maker, working twelve hours a day, can only produce one-third of an inch in a week. Every piece of Alencon passes through the hands of twelve workmen. The best Brussels thread is spun in cells under ground, because the dry air above would cause the thread to snap. Upon the worker, as she sits in the dark, is directed one ray of light, but the thread is so fine that her delicate fingers are better guides than her eyes. Very many lose their sight, and the high pay the lace-worker earns is proportionate to the acknowl edged unhcalthincss of the occupation. The hondspnn thread jnado at Brussels of flax of Brabant costs before it is yet made up into lace $1,200 per pound, and the process of manufacture more than doubles tho value. Old lace is more voluablo hi price, and some of it can be counterfeited by imitations. Of some vdrietios, however, the secret is lost, as of point d' Argentine, which continued to be mado upon tho banks of the Orne till the French revolution stopped the demand for a time, and gave the peas ants other means of ear Ming their bread, "Tote."

Described by Emily Faithfull. The strong desire of smart respectable young women to obtain the place of bar maid behind a public-house counter is evinced by the number of applicants of fering their services in the licensed victualers' newspapers, describing them selves as tall, genteel, well-educated, at tractive, never been out before, and ready to serve months without wages. I have in my tame known many attractive barmaids, and have often heard from their lips tales of misery, whilst others, full of gayety, would not exchange their position except upon a "very eligible otter. JN umbers of young females have been brought to the bar through un thinking friends of " mine host " the latter taking the maids upon the sole recommendation of customers ; and, once installed barmaids, barmaids they must continue, unless married, for few would accept their services in any other capacity. A great many undoubtedly like the position from the pure love of admiration and vanity. They like to be talked to, and converse with flatterers and admirers ; and their fondness for dress is considerably heightened by the opportunities afforded of " showing off" to the " fellows " using the tavern. It would be for from the truth to assert that all this allurement to improprieties with men leads to evil courses as a rule. for as a class, placed in so many ways of temptation, barmaids are far more moral than many other female employes that could be easily named. They Jiave no objection to be made love to and accept presents from " softheads" and "spoon eys," but catch them outsido the bar with such 1 In many houses at the West End and tho City used by clerks, law yers, and shopmen, the landlords find it greatly to their interest to havo hand some, fine, showy, attractive, and talka tive " young ladies " behind the bar. The conversation at these houses is by no means of the " goody school of alpha bet" Many of these " young ladies " have rich dresses in the height of fashion, found them by their employers, and only serve at those hours when the " giddy ites " look in to liquor-up and feed. It may be piety, or something else, that causes this branch of bar-maidenhood to forsake the taps on the seventh day, but certain it is they always havo their Sun days out and are to be seen at Kew, Richmond, and even the "Zoo," escort ed by rich admirers. Many marry rich men, and not long sinco a Jermyn street barmaid was united to a wealthy ship owner and member of Parliament The old gent in this caso married out of gratitude'for the young lady's civility at a time when he was taken queer at the bar. Most barmaids possess the virtues of civility and politeness, until their cus tomers get queerly otherwiset and are asking for "tick," when the virtues dis appear altogether, andlnstead of " please give your orders, gentlemen," the gen tlemen are "ordered out" With respect to remuneration being an inducement to enter the services of the " bar," it must be ptherwise, for the general wages aver age only 10 to 12 per year. In regard to easy and pleasant duties as encouraging females to seek such employment, those who have thought so at first must have been sadly disappointed. , In many West End houses, barmaids are down by 5 o'clock in the morning, and, with tho exception of three hours' rest in the less busy hours of the day, they are at work until half-past 12 at night They have to clean the floor of the bar, the taps and glosses. They are in many cases never still or off their feet from early morn till the middle of the night On Sundays they have a few hours to themselves, which are taken up in cleaning out their garret and arranging or mending their clothes. Once a month they are allowed a " day out." They havo to silently bear the filthiest language anddisgusting sights, particularly from their own sex. They have to put up with insults from the lowest of the low without a murmur, and all this for less wages than is paid for niaids-of-all-work. Woman's Energy. Says the Pall Mall Gazette : Woman often complains that hers is comparative ly a fixed, a secluded, and a meditative life. Yet it is not always so ; she occa sionally emerges from a life of seclusion and meditation and displays an energy and a versatility of talent which throw man completely into tho shade, and would, but for his moral blindness, awaken him to a more vivid senso of his own inferiority. Such a career, for instance, as that of a lady, by name Elizabeth Taylor, who was charged on Friday last before the magistrates at Warrington with being drunk and disor derly, and fined five shillings and costs, is one that may be studied with advan tage by many a frivolous man whose life is spent in indolence and ease. Mrs. Taylor, who appeared in the dock in " mole attire," was stated by .the chief constable to bo the daughter of a gen tleman who formerly lived at Penketh, near Warrington. She had boon, bio- ried, but her husband was killed twenty- one years ago, and for the last thirteen years bIii had adopted- the garments of man. She was employed as a sailor during the American war, and made several voyages from South Wales to the American coast in vessels sent out to supply the Alabama and blockade run ners with cool. She was known by, the name of "Happy Ned" and "Navy Ned." For somo time past she has worked as a laborer on several farms in the neighborhood of Warrington, and so late as the 12th instant helped to kill thirteen pigs for a farmer at Croft. Al together Mrs. Taylor seems to be a singu larly industrious and persevering person, and well fitted, with any extraneous aid, to fight the battle of life. . A White Rose on an Apple Tree.
