My curtains are completely saturated, and Aunt Alice Amesbury shook out her immaculate window drapery with many expressions 01 disgust. "it is just imagination, auntv, re turned her pretty . niece. . glancing up from her embroidery." Mr. Paul Seldon alwavs smokes on the balcony." " es, consequently the odious smoke is wafted by the window drafts directly into the parlor, b or my part I deeply regret ever having taken gentlemen boarders, they are such upsetting creat ures and make such a world of work." "It was vour own proposition, auntv. If you ' will recollect I was in favor of taking' only ladies. But you said they were never satisfied, were meddlesome. and did not pay as well as gentlemen. " All very true, answered Aunt Alice, with a little pink creeping into her faded cheeks, "but, Clara, I did not Buspect 'you capable $of .getting np a flirtation with on0 of flie eentlemea." f Having been betetr in the argument, fshe. womanlike shifted the snbiect in hand into an entirely -different channel, dropping the old grievance for a new, as it the mucn aousea curtains were alter .til only a secondary consideration, "flirtation. Aunt Alice!", exclaimed Clara, in wide eyed ismoceace, .though the very next moment they were veiled in modest confusion, while the tell tale color brightened the pretty face. "I do not krrw what else you call it, Clara, Paul Seldon has become your almost shadow. If yon practice, he id leaning over the piano if yon sit read ing or sewing tie is certain to be at your feet or very near, xou cannot even step into the garden to gather a few flowers but he is instantly there keeping you to waste time by the hour." "Now, aunty, you are not your dear. old, kind self, but just a bit cross and unjust," exclaimed her niece, with tears in her blue . eyes, and springing up sne threw her arms about her aunt, (who was very enenreticallv dusting and arranging the pretty little parlor;) there- Dy considerably mussing tne enspness oi the morning wrapper, which like herself was precise and immaculate upon most occasions. - " Though an unmarried maiden of mid dle age, Miss Alice Amesbury- was not in the least like the traditionar spinster, soured and disagreeable. On the con trary she was gentle, kind and always sweet tempered, and had thus retained very . much of her youthful bloom and prettiness.'tShe wned a- lovely, home in one of the suburban villages that surround New York, and with her orphaned niece as sole companion, lived in calm independence until me nam times reduced the income from the Rail Koad bonds she depended upon for sup port. Then, as a last resort, she hud otiened her ouiet house to a couple of gentlemen. boarders-r-a lieh bachelor, Id and gouty, who always kept his own room, and a youns nephew who was his devoted attendant and general business agent,' and the cause of much aiixiely to the watchful Miss Amesbury. "There, there, Clara, you are wrink ling my dress. Sit down, child, and listen to what I have to say. Paul Seldon is exactly what his uncle was at his age, vain, selhsh and exacting." "Oh! Aunt Alice, how can you know anything of what his uncle was at his age?" . "The moment those Seldons set their feet m my house, I recognized tne eider i. an old friend of my youth one I now I congratulate mvself as having escaped I linking my fate with." I "Were vou actnallv engaged to that old1ear of a fellow, aunty?" "Yes," she sighed, with misty ryes, it was the one rose dream of my youth. I There was much of folly and sentiment upon my part, jealousy and suspicion and unkindness upon nis. And welL Clara, I cannot dwell upon that portion of mv life. But let rue warn you, I will never cenntenance any engagement between yourself and one of the family. They are iciash, haughty and pyerbear- tlave you anv idea the uncle. Charles Seldon, recognized you?" questioned Clara, ignoring the last remark of her aunt. I feared so at first, but. ah! time has changed me 60 much so many years have passed, that it is quite impossible." ine name or Amesbury, aunty, is an uncommon one and I should thinK he would recognize you by that" "He may never have heard it since coming here.

Then you know. you only address me as 'Aunt Alice,' and i v,;m in ,n n. ti;.i iidv' when he endeavored to get my name correctly." "What a cute woman you are, aunty.

It is said that woman can never keep a love secret, and it was quite certain pretty Miss Clara was rendered unhappy by the possession of one, aud upon the first occasion Ishe and the fascintiting Paul Seldon were alone she forced him to share it with her. ; r aui fceldon, the husband of your man as aging niece, has nothing in the world independent of me. and thoueh I may They were as usual one morning in tho garden cutting flowers when Guru chanced to pierce one of her dainty fingers with a cruel thorn.

Then bending down lower, screened y the roses.' and holding both her hands ... lined tightly within his own, he com- .neiiceu a very earnest conversation and succeeded in not only convincing the happy girl of his sincere attachment, but in believing that he completely filled np ner own lime, loving nean. Ana men out came the secret of Aunt Alice and the determination that her niece should never marry one of the Seldon blood. "We will see about that," returned the joyous PauL as he kissed away the gathering drops from the eyes of Clara. "I have not another moment to stay,'' whisnered Clara, "aunty if -mllipj? me-'' ' "I shall speak to uncle at once, and w.u m ju.ik8 Alice," ne answered, Btill clinging to her hand. "But she is very firm, Paul, dear, and will not relent, I fear." "Then I shall run nwnv with pend upon that, for you are my promised "Oh ! Paul, that would be dreadful !" ' Oh! Clara, it would be elorious ! TTnora second thought, I fancy it would be the best thing we could do, leaving the two old lovers to settle the matter while we are honey-mooning." "I will not listen to another word," laughed Clara, and snatchinir awav her hands ran into her aunt, the happiest girl in the world- The result, of Paul's speaking to hisi unclepf his attachment for Clara, was a most terrible scene, and a notice from the elder Seldon that madam's rooms would lie vacated unon the ftillowino- day. The note to his landlady also con tained a very scathing allusion to the fact of both herself and niece being Very designing women, and expressed a determination to" protect his nenhsw against their arts by all the influence he The second result was to send Aunt Alice to bed with a miserable headache, while poor Clara nearly cried her eves out in the seclusion of her: own room, though presently she received a long and comforting letter from her 'adoring laui. The next morning Miss Amesbury went aown stairs tuny ueterininea to end all intercourse with the Seldons.

But when she rang the breakfast bell Paul and Clara fingered beyond reason, and the maid she dispatched for them returned with the announcement that the young people were not in the house, and that Mr. Charles Seldon was hobbling up and down his room like a caged bear and raving over a letter just received from Mr. PituL 'There," exclaimed Nora, (the maid). "it's the young masther that has run off wid the purty Miss Clara, an' it's meself will pitch the ould one out ov the house, neck and crop, if ye'll spake the worrod jibi, iuibb jimesoury.

But don't be afther givin' in till him. - Shure if he sinds mud iest trive him shtones." - : Aunt Alice was in reality a nluclv lit tle woman, and even if she was, as Nora said, pale as death and looked like faint ing, she walked very firmly up the stairs and into the presence of Mr. Seldon. Madam!" he exclaimed, "read that! Just read that!" and he rudely thrust the letter of his nephew into her hands. n contained me simple announcement that he (Paul) and Clara had been mar ried that morning at an early hour, and hud gone to New York and t;,ken rooms it the fifth Avenue, where thev would await the forgiveness of the uncle ami aunt, believing them both too generous to withhold that which would make them all perfectly happy. Whatdo you think of that?" snarled the incensed old man. "What do you thinkf that, madam?" - 1 am shocked and Grieved more than I can express," returned the lady in a faltering voice, and sinking into the nearest chair. . Indeed !" sneered he. "after rermit- fang'the girl to dawdle away her whole time in the company of that vouncr doe-. in door and out, you are surprised and grieved, forsooth r "I looked upon vour nephew as a gentleman, sir, and though I had re monstrated with Clara, and even forbid den further intimacy, I thought him incapable, of actually stealing the girl," returned Miss Amesbury frmly, his taunts having aroused all the dignity of her nature. "Humph I All I have to say is that if you did not actually plan the match, madam, you must be a some what blind guardian of a young girl. But I have sent for vou, madam, to give you distinctly to understand that I wash my hands entirely of the young couple." . "As if I would give your selfii-h nature credit for anything else," she answered tartly. "And, madam, permit me to add that still choose to keep him in mj emplov, I will never see his wife or term it her name mentioned, and you may as well comprehend that 1 despite an nt-sn in woman form. They are nothing but apples of discord, and ever have been, from Eve down to the present time." "And permit me." responded Miss Amesbury, springing to ner feet and drawing her fine form to its fullest height, "to say that I should hate all cf mankind throueh you, Charles Seldon! But I cannot, for J m satisfied there are very fewwho like him, are capable of winning the iitieirtions of a young girl, only to cast her off and trample npon them, upon the slightt-bt provoca tion ; and that though you, Charles Sel don, were capable of all 'that, was treach erous and mean, I am led to believe that Paul Seldon posse sees a generous, affec tionate heart, and that he truly loves Clara. So I snail go to them and at once install them in tlie room you now occu py, and which you - will much oblige me by vacating immediately." Wliilfl aha was sneakine the gentle man sat as one transformed, never taking his eyes from the flushed face that was pretty despite her five and thirty years. When she had concluded and was about to leave the room, he managed to artic ulate, but in a voice so changed as scarcely to be recognized : "Alice AmesDury, is it possible yon L.y the charge of treachery and disft-n- plon Bt my door?

"You left me without even a word of farewell, except the eloquent, though mute one of the returned pack age of notes and letters, withered flowers and the glove you took from my hand when you placed the engagement ring upon it." The flashing eyes were dropping tears when she paused, while Mr. Seldon drew from a pocket in his bosom, a letter faded and worn, and with tremblinz 1 1 . 1 l o nanu gave it tu tier, a&Kirjg, "Do you recognize that?' - fie watched her with eager eyes as sne reao. ner cneeKS nusnea and paled and when she had finished she raised her truthful face to his and an&wtreu with white and quivering lips : I never saw this before never sent it to you. It is the hand-writing of my wusuj oteua." "But BO like vour own." hfi answered "Yes, so like my own that it would be very difficult for any but myself to de- uue. "Nevertheless I am not to be blamed lor thinking your own hand penned the cruel lines. , See, it says peremptorily, "return all my keepsakes, and consider that from this moment our engagement is broken. I have found out before it i.-t too late that I never truly loved you." And now, after all these years you teil me that I have been deceived that the note which parted us and sent me into exile a soured, disappointed man, robbed of my trust in woman until this hour, was written by another." She lifted her face to him once again and answered : "As God is my judge I speak only the truth. But she who did us this wrong is in her grave. Her motive was revenge for some fancied slight or love of you, it matters not now." Again 6he bowed her head upon her white hands and wept, while he also shaded his face to hide the tears. But at length he brokenly resumed : Alice, after all these weary, suffenne years can you forgive me for being a dupe for being so blind and unjust?" "Charles." whispered she throueh her sobs, "can you forgive me for cherishing such little thoughts of you these many sad, sad years?" The next moment they were standing face to face, with clasped hands, bridg ing the chasm of time. flow strange, said Clara, a week later, as she was seated upon her hus band s knee, to find our naughty selves forgiven and installed in aunty's best room the 'blue euest' chamber, as she calls it" "And all brought about, little wife, bv those old lovers quarreling over us. and thereby unearthing an ancient misunder standing, followed by reconciliation and a hasty marriage." "And such a happy couple," returned Clara, "and such a changed man as your uncie as is our uncle faul r "An' be me troth," exclaimed Nora in the servant's hall. "Ther be's no fools like ould fools. .

There is often a great advantage to a town, as well as to the individual noble man, when the capital of a peer is in vested in some great commercial under taking, or taes the direction of improv ing and developing the town itself. The Duke of Devonshire, the very model of a business man, has been doing a great work in the two towns, where he is a large land-owner, of Buxton and East bourne. Cardiff is a typical instance. It was once an insignificant place, whither coal was brought down on the backs of mules to the tiny wharf of a little creek belonging to tne port ot Bristol. It was known chiefly to the traveler as a place situated near to the cathedral village of Llandaff. Now the relative importance of the two places is entirely altered ; Cardiff is a busy town and thriving port, while Llandalt is its suburb, as Chiton is a suburb of .Bristol The late Marquis of Bute, to whose en terprising spirit the rise of this town is entirely due, possessed, in addition to some 25,000 acres of the Glamorganshire hills, rich with mineral treasures, a large tract of moorland, desolate and bare, in front of the small town of Carditt. .Several schemes were suggested to him for utilizing this land, and he at last de termined on supplying the town with docks. In this ereat enterprise the mar quis is popularly reported, as was also said of that great commercial nobleman, the Duke of Undawater, to have haz arded almost his last penny ; but in the issue the docks have been successlul far more successful than the canals. The present marquis was only an infant when he came into the title. . The trus tees carried out all the plans of his father, and Lord Bute, we believe, in stead of appropriating the vast in Tome derived from the docks, devotes it to the further expansion of the port. The marquis is the owner of large fields of smokeless coal which is no w preferred by all the navies of the world. Lord Bute inherits the genius of his father in being an immense builder ; and as his house in his Scottish isle has been recently burnt down, he will have a further op portunity for exercising his capacity tins way. About one-half of the great town of Cardiff belongs to him, of course in cluding the castle, which, reconstructed once, is receiving another reconstruc tion. The east end, wfucn is practically the "west end." of Cardiff, belongs to Lord Tredecar. and "is called after him. iredegarville. tiis iana enjoins .Lora .Bute's, and he may possiuiy nave a port to compete with Lord Bute's. A curious point has, however, been raised to tho effect that the Crown is the owner of the beach from low-water to high-water mark, and may on occasion assert its rights. Many other instances might be given of the vast commercial interests f nobility. The great iron-works which are the property of the Duke of Cleve land, might be mentioned. The Duke of Westminster is, we believe, greatly engaged in building transactions. He is the landlord of the two Houses of Parliament. Within recent years his Westminster nrooertv hua been enor mously developed, and will soon be entirely covered with sumptuous build ings. The Earl of Derby owns a great part of Liverpool; the Duke of Norfolk owns a great part of Shefheld ; the Earl of Kimberly owns a good deal of Fttl month. Lord Maeaulay said, according to Mr. Trcvelyan's work, that he would not exchange his position for all the wealth which Lord Dudley had below the ground, or Lord Westminster nnove it. The town of Brighton nilords sev eral illustrations of our subject, I be Earl of Chichester has a good deal of property in the east end, but being dis appointed in an election he abjured the place, beyond presenting it with a cemetery as a solemn warning. He is now takinc his part in the remarkable development of the place. London Ex. Thb Kobe of 6haroh. The so-called Knse of Sharon is one of the most ex quisite flowers in shnpo and hue. Its blossoms are bell-shaped, and of many mingled hues and dves. But its history is legendary and romantio in the high est degree.' In the East, throughout Syria, Judea and A rixbia, it is regarded with the profoundest reverence. The leaves that encircle the round blossoms dry and close together when the seasons of blossoms are over, and the stall:, withering completely away at last fimn the bush on which it grew, lmving dried in the shape of a bull, which is curried by the breeze to great distances. In this way it is borne over the wastes and sandy deserts, until at last, touching some moist place, it clings to the soil, where it immediately takes some moist fresh root and 8rings to life anil beauty again.

Tact. requires a large amount of tact, to be prosecuted pleasantly or profitably; to catch the radiant nointu of character in another and turn them to good account for ourselves. It may not be natural with all, but can be culti vated the same as any other trait of character, and the more we do so the better. Tact seizes intuitively the weaker points of our associates and gives the ability to work upon and control them. It smoothes the rough places, pours oil upon the troubled waters of temper; bridges many a chasm and guards against many a wreck. It is as essential as capital ; more so it would appear than the strict plummet and rule of honesty, ( to the shame of mankind be it written), and often stands alone in the gap be tween failure and success. Many a man has started from literally nothing and achieved renown and for tune simply by a discretionary use of tact by the knowledge of what the market required, the art of 'managing customers and seductively forcing sales at the right moment at high prices. Capital has seen its shelves regain groaning with goods while forethought and tact of display and inducements. has cleared others and filled and emp tied them again. Given the progressive with tact and capital without it, and the former is certain to win the day. Tact is blessed with keenly scrutiniz ing eyes, as with the smoothest of tongues. It instantly comprehends what is for the best, and has fitting words to give it expression ; to touch the chords of feeling; to flatter delicately, if need be ; to ever be polite and call into action the self love and the self interest that is at the bottom of all our actions, no matter how much we disclaim the idea. Man is an instrument of many strings. many keys and many notes. The touch of to-day will not answer for the morrow, and the song that to-day awakens smiles will before the going down of another sun summon tears. Our moods are as changeable as the wind. A thousand motives keep us from stability. Others have influence over us, and happy ia he who has the tact to perceive and regu late himself by the swaying of souls. The right word in the right place often goes much farther than hours of argu ment would do; a single one, more power than sentence after sentence, for we weary and grow sick of mere verbiage. Such things jar the ear and cause dis cord among the strings; the harmony of unison is lost : the one who perhaps is striving for one sood alone ia voted a bore, and we turn the cold shoulder upon him to our undoing. There is tact in silence as well as in speaking. The same rule does not hold good with all. One will bear urging, and another grows restless under, and disgusted with it : one man is willing to be taught and another inclined to the opinion that he knows about all that can be learned, and would not listen to instruction; would turn a deaf ear to even the most 'shin ing ministers of light.' Here tact steps in and easily strikes the balance ; keeps in check or gives tree rem to tne tongue; teaches or pretends to be taught, making everything subservient to the axe to be wound." Tact rarely or never stumDies upon a sore subject. A single glance is suffi cient to keep it from stranding upon for bidden shoals. It knows just now far to go, and never trespasses beyond. It never mentions relatives who are under the ban ; talks of unpleasant episodes of character or business ; gives no hint that such things are known, and if men tioned by accident innocently doubts and ignores, ft never touts1 oi iunemia at dinners or discourses of death at wed dings; it never speaks of ghosts just before retiring, or jests upon grave sub jects. It makes the best of everything and deludes man into the belief that he is much better than he believes him self to be. It is a pleasant pastime to the ear. even though failing, to find a lodsinent in the heart. One without tact is forever running asainst feminine pins and masculine elbows : to use an old and homely ex pressive adage, is forever "putting his foot" into something that will create trouble. He blunders into the sensitive Bubject of woman's age, and things re garding men that causes shrugs and scowls, and the more he Attempts to extricate himself the deeper he floun ders into the mire. He creates ene mies without intention, and is brought up "with a. round turn" when least x pecting it In attempting to pick a rose ne is sure to get etung Dy a inorn;ana in presort bins for sickness administers poison. He goes through bfe turning tne wrong way, and constantly in colli sion with somebody: talks when ' he should keen still : is silent when ; he should be loouacion6: gives opinions when he is not asked ; advice when none is reauired: dilates upon poverty to those who are suffering froui it ; . of beauty to those who smart wuier its want ; -ef charity to those who twwtr give ; of pain to those the most suffer ing ; of death and the grave to those who tremble at the mere mention, and generally makes himself and others miserable. Tact is required in all the associations oflife at homeaswell as abroad. Upon it depends very much the peace of the hearthstone. Every woman has a suffi ciency of trial to lear, and her burden should be made as ligitt us possible, and she too needs tact. It hjls been well written that "many a woman, endowed with noble attributes, and rich in sterling virtues, has passed through life little beloved, little appreciate, and seldom sought after, because eh was lamentably deficient in this one ccof ating, harmonizing quality of tact; be. rfliisa Bh nln-nvn rendered those With whom she associated discontented with themselves, and that engendered dis content with her." Tact the way of getting along smoothly with others and making and keeping jnenas is invaiuauie m iub umrhl is better almost than knowledge and wealth ; is the equal of the former and the rival of the bitter, and he who the most cultivates and uses it will be the most happy and fortunate. Eating Philopena. In Germany they manage this little pastime m a very pleasant way. hen a couple meet after eating p)4W?na together no advantage is taken of tlw other until one of them pronounces tLe word philopena." lhis is the warning that now the sport is to becin. Let us suppose that a gentleman calls upon a lady. Mie invites him to walk In, and at the tame time speaks the talisniaiuc word. If he accepts the offer to walk in he is lcst? unless she removes the ban by telling him to go away. If she asks him to take off his hat, "he must reso lutely keep it on ; if to be seated, he must stand : or if at the table she should hand him anv article which he accepts, she wins the forfeit. During all this time he endeavors to take her by sur prise, for the acceptance of any offer from the other wins the game. Both are constantly exercising their wits to pre vent being caught, and the sport often goes on all the evening. Peahaps the gentleman brings a little present and says, "Knowing tnai l snail lose my pliilopena, I have brought it along hero it is." If she is caught off her guard by the smooth speech she loses, for he immediately claims forfeit. If neither wins at the first meeting, the sport is continued to the second, and it may happen that half a dozen parties meet at the same time, uu miiiuiu " their philoiiena partners, so ; that the scene often becomes ludicrously amus ing! It is "diamond cut diamond, in very truth A French scientific authority states tlwt the ordinary rate of man's walking is four feet per second : of a good horse, in harness, twelve; of a reindeer in a sledge on the ice, twentv-six; of an English race horse, forty-three; or a hare, eighty-eight ; of a good sailing, ship, fourteen ; and of the wind, eighty-two. Advertising. Though "keeping it before the public has long been known as the golden road to success in business, yet how it could best be done has been a mooted point. But experience is fast settling the matter upon a firm and true basis, and money that has heretofore been the same as squandered will be made to return good interest upon the invest ment. Circulars (though of some use) have about had their day. The public have learned that, as a rule, they are tossed unread into the waste basket; the expense of printing and envelopes, direction and postage do not pay. Busi ness men are simply annoyed by having their mails filled with them: are dis gusted with having valuable time taken up in the opening, and know that gen erally such advertising dodges are not woi thy of respect. In the inception of the plan it may have worked benefi cially; now it is worthless and a nui sance ; is resorted to for the most part by confidence men, quack medicine ven dors and "shovers ot the queer," and he who has a reputation at stake avoids such questionable means of giving to the public knowledge of what he has to sell. The legitimate wins in the Ions ran. and the legitimate in advertising is the newspaper. That is never thrown care lessly aside ; is read by the many ; there is something in it that appeals to every mind and heart pathos, tustory, poetry, anecdotes, morality, religion, statistics it is in fact a map of the busy world, and so attracts the eye. It is not con fined to the counting room, but finds it way to the home circle and is cherished around the family hearth ; is read and reread ; is filed away for future refer ence, and when use requires some "ad" that is impressed upon memory is hunted up and yields its fruit in patron age. There is something of responsibility in its announcements ; it is a sort of godfather to all published within its columns; there is an air of respectabil ity about it than can never be given to transient matter ; it vouches, as it were, for correctness and honesty and reliabil ity of what is given to the public: there are no no "ways that are dark and tricks that are vain" in giving knowledge of where goods can be found, and where it is for the best interest of the purchaser to go ; there is stability in what it says, and it reaches thousands of homes and eyes that can never be gained in any other manner. In the present age those who do not read can be counted upon the fingers ; those who do can scarcely more than be numbered by the sands on the sea shore: and the "wise learneth what is good and holds on to it," and will remember that the newspaper is the true medium of giving information to the public Charles F. Williams has been sen tenced in Portsmouth, N. H, to three years' imprisonment. His criminal career is remarkable. During the war he was a notorious bounty jumper, and was sentenced to be shot, but Lincoln changed the penalty to imprisonment for life, and Johnson pardoned him. Afterward he served several terms for bigamy and assaults. In his intervals of freedom he was a public singer, a clown in a circus, and a Methodist clergy man. In the latter character he was successful as a. revivalist, his sermons and singing being wonderfully effective with sinners. He was always able to get good pay in the form of collections, and, having secured a sufficient sum, he went to some large city to spend it in ilurinnnliMTf My family received more benefit from E. K.
