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

BRITISH BARMAIDS.
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.
On the premises of Mr. N. F. Bech-
teL Ferkiomcn avenue and Franklin
street, is to be seen one of tho most re
markable curiosities ever heard of, of
the kind. A large crab-apple tree
growing in the yard, and on the top of
tho tree is blooming a pure, white rose.
Tho rose stem, which is growing from
the apple branch, is over two years old,
as it has already bloomed two years.

BREADSTUFFS.
The movement in the grain marketa has been
moderately active during the past week, specu
lators taking bold freely, and liberal saleB were
made for July delivery. The prevailing feeling
was generally a trifle firmer than during the
preceding week, and the closing quotations
show a slight improvement on wheat, corn and
bailey, while oats were, weak and easier. The
forward movement was fair of wheat, but light
on the other grains, and the stock in store is
Btill considerably larger than usual at this season
of the year. Wheat was higher almost all week.
'Corn was irregular, ruling higher and lower
alternately. The warm weather on Friday
caused a pressure to sell and values were lc
lower. Saturday the cold weather caused an
advance. Oats were weak and lower, the favora
ble weather increasing the pressure to sell.
Bye was quiet and steady. Barley was firm and
in demand.
Tho following table shows the prices current
at the opening and close of the past week:

should be used for toe relittf and cure of Hernia:
now, after more than thirty years' continuous practice,
