The radiantly-colored leaves of the October morning were drifting down on the walk: the distant woods were slowing like a (riant kaleidoscope, and the sweet, pine-scented air was blue with the intense blneness of an Ameri can autumn, as Doctor Dulany saun tered down the village street. 'My lines have fallen in p. easant places," said he, to himself. "When old Doctor Hoiden asKea me to come here and take charge of his practice for three months while he went to Europe, I had no idea that I was stepping into an earthlv paradise like this, and- But at . this moment a tall, square- m , shouldered young man stopped, directly in front of him, holding out a welcom ing hand. "No 1" cried he, " Surely my senses can't be playing me false ! It ia Frank Dulany I And what in the naiad of all the heathen gods has brougnt you herer Dulany laughed. "I knew you lived somewhere in this vicinity." said he; "I am here in charge of old Holden's patients for three months, before I go South for the rest of my life, Tell me something about Mossbridge and the Moss- bridgians." Mr. Kirke linked his arm in that of his friend, and together they walked down toward the little atone hospital cn the shore of the river, where incurable diseases, gratis-patients and out-door relief were lumped together, as they often are in country towns ; and as tney walked they talked, with the' careless abandon of college friends. "But you haven't told me anything about tne ladies, said iralssny, carelessly.' . "I'm coming to that,", said Kirke. "We have a dozen pretty girls, at the very least, but only one beauty. And I tell you what, Dulany, you had better beware of Geralda Granger." "And why?" Dulany asked. "Because," Kirke .laughingly made answer, "she is a meroiless beauty a slaughterer of human heartsin fine, a first-class coquette. . "And you think I shall become one of her viotims ?" said Dootor Dulany. "Think r eohoed Kirke, "I don't think at all I'm quite sure of it I" "But I'm only a poor young country doctor. Why should she trouble her head about me, if she is, as you say, suen a peerless beauty "Because," said Kirke, "she'd flirt with a chimney-sweep, if there was no one else on hand upon whom she might whet her powers. It's in her. She's born to rule human hearts, and trample on them afterward." "Aud how have you esoaped this common doom of all mankind ?" asked Dulany. -y .inavent," jurse answered, witn a comical grimace. "My soalp hangs at her belt with half a1 hundred others. She refused rue a year ago. She don't mean to ' marry in Mossbndge. She has an nounoed her determination to become tho bride of some city millionaire; and I think she'll do it, too for, by George, nVi a'u li 3 ri Aw r ih A A L . bub b iwuusuuie cuuugu w Do m CrOWa princess 1" . Doctor Dulany thought over all these things afterward, when he was by uuiioou iu uus ubue umce. ' ' . "I don't mean to become the prey of this rural Cleopatra," he said to him relf; "and I rather think that my ob scurity is my security." ; . , "The young doctor who has taken old Holden's . practice, eh T' said Miss Granger, a little disdainfully, "He is to be at Miss Mix's to night, ia he? Very well t shall soon diopose of him!" . ,t. Geralda Granger was a tall, imperial beauty, with dark, long-lashed eyes,' a oomploxion like cream-and-roses, and a soft, languid voice; and, at Miss Mix's sooial'gathering that tight, she looked as lovely as a dream of Circassia. But, to her infinite dismay and amazement, Dootor Dulany took io more notice of her than he did of old Mrs. Percy, who wore ft wig and blue spectacles. He was coolly polite -that was all; and Miss Granger did not know what to make of him. "But he's rather handsome," she un willingly admitted to herself. Miss Granger: put on her prettiest dresses and decorated her hair with the sweetest flowers out of her aunt's little conservatory, and really devoted herself mat autumn to the business of captiva ting Doctor Dulany. "The man must be made of east iron," she said to herself. "And only an insignificant little country doctor at that! It's perfectly ridiculous! The idea of his visiting Miss Herbert just because she has a mania for charity and Soor people ! And he took Lucy Vil ars down into the woods to botanize after autumn flowers the hateful school-miss I And he's going to join Mrs. Graoey's Shakespeare Sooiety. I never was a blue-stocking, and I never will bet Let him go r But Geralda couldn't oontent herself with this system of philosophy. Dootor Dalany was the first man who had ever resisted ner fascinations, and she was determined that he should be the last. And she tossed her head, and froze up, like a fair .loicle, in nis presence, and the flinty-hearted fellow never even seemed to Know it "A charming young man," said Mrs. Gracey "so intellectual, so per fectly well informed on every subieot." "So truly generous and good ito the poor l" said Jjouisa Herbert. "The most delightful companion in the world," said little Lucy Villain, who wasdeveloping into a dangerously pretty blonde. "Oh, Geralda, if you could only, hear him talk about tus Home and his mother." "Pshaw I" said Geralda, so short and sharp that Lucy looked up, wondering whut was the matter. Miss Granger was somewhat pensive that evening. She had always re garded Lucy Villars as a child; but after all, she was nearly seventeen, and undeniable pretty. But what a fool Dootor Dulany would be, to. fling away his rich nature and rare capacities on a thoughtless elf like Lucy, just out of boarding school I ' "Aunt Susie," said she, suddenly, "I think I should like to join a sister hood, or go into a convent, or some thing of that sort." "What ?" said Aunt Susie, in dismay. "I'm tired of all these senseless ball" and parties," said Geralda, bursting into tears. "My love," said Aunt Susie, "you are not well. Tour nervous system is aM run dowi. We'll send for the doctor." Doctor Dulany came just exactly like a "human machine." as Geralda de clared in her ansrer. felt her pulse, Boutfu uaii a aozen conventional ques tions, and advised early hours and a i l.ii - i is t tonic "I can't bear that manl" said Geralda; and she burst out crying. "The poor darling is quite hyeteri caL" said Aunt Susie. "Never mind- good old Doctor Holden is coming baok next month, and he will under stand your constitution I" . And then Geralda cried more bitterly than ever, and Aunt Susie was hope lessly puzzled. : , ..... Dootor Dulany was at the hospital, next day, just at twilight, and as he came into the feverish ward a soft-gray shadow glided out at the other door way. "Who is that?" he asked, quickly. "jnoi old Juate, nor yet Alice ivans." "It's Miss Granger sir," said the head nurse. "Alice has the neuralgia m ner lace, and Miss Granger woud take her place." "She must not do it again,' caid Doctor Dulany, with ouiet authority. "I am not quite sure of the non-conta gious character of some of these cases, "She says, sir," declared " the old nurse, "that sho wants to do some good in the world. But we was to be sure and not tell you, sir." Doctor Dulany smiled. "There are mora ways of doing good in the world than cne," said he. "And Miss Granger must come here no more." He hurried tnrough the various wards and made ouch good speed back along the lonely road that he overtook the gray, gliding shadow at the entrance to the village streSt. , "Miss Granger." said he, "I detected your identity at once. - 1 "What of , it?" retorted ; Geralda, almost fiercely. "I supposed I had right to enter a Public Hospital so long as my uncle pays taxes for its support." "Possibly," said Doctor Dulany; "but it is my desire that you will not come there again." "Is it, then, an offense even to cross your path?'' indignantly ' cried out Geralda. - "Not in the least; but" "I know I have known all along," went on the girl choking down the angry vsobs in her throat, "that you bated tne signt of. me; but you nave no right actually to tell me so! Oh, I am so wretched 1 I wish that I were dead." Doctor Dulany planted himself directly across the path, so that she could neither walk over, under, nor around him. Miss Granger," said he, "will you you "I be kind enough to tell me what mean?" "No!" flashed out the girL won't 1" "But you shall I" . quietly declared the dootor. "The reason that I did not want you to enter the hospital, is that I have an idea that some of those fever cases partake of the typhoid nature, and-" "What then ?" said Geralda. "What have I to live for that I Bhould shrink from exposing myself?" "Everything !" said the doctor. "Nothing I" said Geralda. "Nevertheless," said Dulany, quietly, "I forbid you running this risk." "What is it to your' she cried, pas sionately. "If I dreamed that you cared whether 1 lived or died" She stopped uaddenly, with crimson ing cheeks. Had she said too muoh? ."1 do care," said Doctor Dulany. "Very much, indeed. In fact, had I not been told that you were a heartless coquet " "It is false 1" said Geralda, hurriedly. "I might even venture to say more," he pursued, his eyes fixed intently on her f aoe. "Say it, then,", she whispered, making no effort to withdraw the hand whio he had taken. "Well, then," he returned, laughing, "I love you. Is that definite enough V ."And I love your sne answered, 'Oh. Doctor Dulany, you must have seen that long ago ! But, tell me, when did you first begin to to care for me?" "from the hour in which I first saw you," said he. ' And so our village coquette was con' quered, and surrendered at discretion; and. to the surprise of all her mends. she has married the quiet young country doctor. 1 A Sad Tale from the Sea. ' Mrs. ueorge u Hunter, the wife o: Captain Hunter, of the schooner Thomas J. Lancaster, which was wreoked north of Cape Hatteras, has returned home to Philadelphia widowed and childless, having left the bodies of her husband and three children buried in the North Carolina sands, near tho burial place of four seamen and the second mate. Tied high up ia the rigging of the Lancasto while the strong vessel was pounding herself to pieces, Mrs. Hunter saw her infant child torn from her arms by the sea. wmcn bad only a moment before swallowed up her husband and his eldest daughter, and still clinging, wet and neatly frozen to the mast, the heart-broken woman heard above the roar of the sea a plaintive, sobbing cry. "Mamma, come save me," wmcn told her that one child still lived. Through twelve hours of wind and rain and dark ness Mrs. Hunger battled against the ropes whioh obstinately saved her life by fastening herself there out of reaoh of the storm and of her child, who died even after succor came, and the five survivors of the ill-fated ship were brought to land. . When the captain's body was found, his pocket had been rcbbedof875, which he had secured before leaving the cabin when the vessel struck the reef. The poor woman was thus left destitute, but not mend- loss, for she met kind assistance from Lieutenant.

Ofifoa Logan, Reed-Bird Shooting In Delaware, As they bc southward ' in .the fall, our favorite meadow singers, tne bobor links, take to the marshes and become reed birds, muoh sought after by sports men and pot hunters. At Chester, Delaware, the headquarters of the bird shooters of the State, there, are forty professional "puehetj." The shooting begin, the first of September. The Philadelphia Times makes a brief esti mate of the results of a month's shoot ing. At Chester, at the Lazaretto, and the two hundred club' houses that line both banks of tho . Delaware from League Island to Marous Hook, there will be at least nine hnndred shooters daily.- At the former two places 2,000 birds daily taking the scores of those who push themselves and of the pro fessional shooters will be killed. Eight hundred gunners daily from the private club houses is but a fair count, and, giving them each a score of 10 birds . daily, the ..total Will be ' 10,000 birds killed every day, in the month of Sep tember, an aggregate of 300,000 scored at the above places alone. This is but a meager approximation of the grand total, probably ranging over 1,000,000 when the marshes from Bombay Hook to Bordentown are ' inoluded in tl i estimate.", -r- , 7 ; : There are more t hoops on the inside of a barrel of whisky than there are hoops on the out side.
