I am sure nobody who seee mj placid husband now would believe that he was once one of the most jealous-tempered men in England ; and m the way in which I cured him of bis folly was very sim ple, I will relate the means pursued by me, for the sake of other victims to the absurd mania, be they male or female. My parents died while I was quite an infant, leaving me to the care of my maternal grandmother, who did ber best to spoil me, and was most successful in her treatment. The first eighteen years of my life were passed with few trials pr troubles. My grandmother and I lived in a cottage at Brixton, the prettiest little specimen of suburban architecture im aginable, the only drawback to which was a large stone portico. Granny was very proud of this unsightly thing ; I hated it, not on account of its ioappro priatenesa, but simply because it inter cepted my view of the garden gate, to that from our sitting-room window we could not catch even a glimpse of a visi tor. Although my grandmother was rather) old, she was so full of life and fond of making young people happy that I never felt dull in her society, and made her the confidant of all my little adventures, and she entered into them with all the zest of a girl. One day the even tenor of oar lives was disturbed by the arrival of an in vitation from my aunt, who lived at Scarborongh, asking me to spend some weeks with ber. At first I refused to ac cept it, for this, my only near relative was almost a stranger to me. "You will go, my dear Eva, to oblige me," said Granny, coaxingly; want to have the cottage thoroughly done up, Inside and out, and this will be an ex cellent opportunity. I went, spent three months very de lightfully at Scarborough, and returned home, leaving my heart in the safe keep ing of Claude Anderson. I loved him very dearly ; but a certain fear which 1 felt fqr him prevented that perfect love which would have made me quite hap py. During the month we were engag ed, before I left the North, scarcely a day passed without one or more little "snarls" taking place between us. I knew the word I have used is a vulgar one, but no other will answer my pur pose, seeing that Claude and I did not positively quarrnl. There were a great many nice young men and lads in and out of my aunt's house all day long ; for she was most kind and hospitable, besidn being the mother of six very pretty daughters. These male bipeds were constant sources of jealousy on the part of Claude, who in all other respects was sensible, clever, and I might say almost perfect. I was unusually full of health and spir its, also, (be himself told me) very pretty and charming. A brought me a bouqoet of roses, B a box of preserved frails, C a pug pappy ; in fact, the whole alpha bet, assisted by my six female cousins, conspired with me to tease poor jealous Claude, until positively I believe be felt glad when he pat me into the train and sent me back to London wills gold guard-ring on my finger and a doubting, aching heart Of course, when I reached borne, all my doubts and fears were confided to dear Granny's sympathising ears. ' She listened to my tale of love and woe; then said : H He must be cured of this folly be fore you become his wife, my darling." A week after my return home came letter from Claude, telling me that he bad received a very lucrative Govern' ment appointment in London, and was now in a position to ask granny's con sent to our early marriage. lie came, and made himself so agree able there were no "letters of the al phabet" to tease him that Granny thought I bad exaggerated bis weakness, but she was soon convinced of her error. One afternoon Claude came as usual ; business bad gone wrong with him, and be was rather cross. Grandmother went upstairs for ber afternoon nap, and Claude began to read aloud to me a most unfortunate proceeding on his part for it happened that I was obliged to listen for the street-door bell, and wish ed to conceal the fact from my conpan ion. 1 never did care much for poetry, but that day I quite abhorred it. In the midst of a sentimental piece which Claude was reading most beautifully, "ting, ting'' went the bell ; up I jumped, and with a muttered "Excuse me" left the room. The same Interruption happened again and a third time, i became so nervous tbat I left the sitting-room door open, and this was the unlucky speech which met the ears of my offended companion : "Don t, Charles dear I Leave me alone, sir ; I will not allow you to kiss me, although I am very fond of you." Here followed a scuffle and some sup pressed laughter. When 1 returned to the sitting-room, Claude stood looking the very picture of indignation. "Pray may I ask who 'Charlie dear1 is f Probably 'only a boy,' " he said, satirically. . "No, he is not a boy," I answered with a careless laugh this "only boy" was a sneering allusion to a lad of six teen of whom Claude had once been jealous, and to whom I had justly ap plied the term. "Then I must insist upon knowing whstteinn dared to attempt to kiss you," eirtsfcaed CktMsvAercely. "Would yo am 4o see him?" I ascea, laanungr. amsm we bad a sharp quarrel, which til nifiallisl in his, saying: JCva Raynbam, I gin yM swwry fovr hours to consider whether you win tell me the name of the icBpertinent tas cal whom you permitted to take sack liberty without properly resenting tt If to-morrow night you persist in obsti nate refusal we must part then and for ever.- lean pardon frivolity, bat not deceit" I covered myjface with my hands,and said in a low tone : "I cannot." In a moment he dashed out of the room, and left the bouse, banging the street door so violently tbat Granny ran down alarmed for the plate basket, and found me laughing immoderately. - The next evening eame, and with it Claude, looking so pale and wretched tbat I quite pitied him. Immediately on his arrival Granny left us alone, and for a few minutes silence followed, which was broken by his saying in a aoost se vere tone: "Have you made up your mind to tell the truth, Eva, or lo make us both mis erable for life f" ' "am not miserable ; nor would you be if you were not such a foolish dolt,'' I answered. "Heal tless coquette 1" be began, when a ring at the bell caused me to have the room hastily, for it was Charlie come again. Of course I expected Claude to fallow me but he was not mean, dear fellow I i;, - Very soofi I returned, followed by Charlie, on till four. Yes, the offender was only a large fat terrier, blind of one eye, and old enough, even bad he been a biped not to awaken jealousy In Claude's breast. Never tball forget tbe expression of hnasltoJaMMM poor Cheede'a face at the discover NfcMkassewa rival The cure was more than half completed, and dear Oranny finished It, for she preach ed such beautiful little sermon about tbe folly of jealousy that it made me cry, and Claude's voice was quite husky when next he spoke. After it was all made up, and matters were pleasant again, I said: "Now, Claude, I will tell you why the bell had tucb a disturbing effect up on me yesterday. Our only domestic hadgoneoutfortbe afternoon, and I, from a weak-minded pride, wished to conceal tbe reduced condition of our es tablishment from you. First came tbe baker, then the postman, and, finally, tbe mllkwoman, who is a great friend of mine,and sole proprietress of the offend. Ing Charlie. I am very fond of the poor old dog, but could never allow ' either him or anyother animal to lick my face; hence the expostulation on my part, and our recent quarrel, which has ended so satisfactorily." Claude looked at the matter so good naturedly, and owned his folly with such unflinching candor, that I deter mined never again to flirt or teaze him, and I have kept my resolution, with one exception. Sometimes I say "bow wow" to him, and to this very day it makes him gnaw his moustache with im patience, for he is thus led to call to mind the to me somewhat droll inci dent of "Charlie's Kiss." ilZPOLOOY.
