A PRETTY PHILADELPHIA SHOP
GIRL BECOMES A PEES ESS.
The Story of Diana Blake's Good Fortune.
A Romance of Fifty Year Ig-o She
Left the Stage for a Home In England.
Her Second Marriage.
Forty years ago Eighth stnet, from
Market to Arch, was bordered xnth two
gtory houses, most of them cont smporary
with 1830 and given over to smidl notion
stores, the proprietors living in the second
floors. The business done was ery limit
ed, old Mrs. Harback. making me re money
in her little candy store than any merchant
on the street. Miss Rachel Lang kept a
dry goods and trimming store in .he neigh
borhood of Eighth and Filbert. She was
a kindly old Scotch lady, who would as
soon have had a man behind her counter
as a German band before the door.
So all her assistants were girl Gloves
were the only men's wear sold in this shop,
and Miss Lang noted with satisfi ction that
ber sales in this line were rapidly increas
ing, but it never occurred to her that this
was due to any other cause than the excel
lence of her goods, although in fact her
gentlemen customers cared very little for
tbe price and quality of what tbey bought
su long as they were waited on by Diana
Blnke, who was generally admitted to bo
tbe loveliest girl within the city limits.
Long nosed, sallowfaced ladies, with un
deniable social records and pock 'ts full of
money, often visited thestorenni! wondered
by what caprice of fortune a con nion Iri.sJji
shop girl should-have had such i dower of
lieauty which in the fitness of things oussht
to be the inheritance of wom-u having
Quaker ancestors and big bank .-iccounts.
as A snop GIRL.
One of them went so far as to suggest to
Miss Lang that Miss Blake's ood" looks
were too apparent for her stat.on in life,
but went away much offended when the
little Scotch lady remarked "that if every
one minded t heir own business we would
all eet along better."
Diana was born in Galway, I -eland, but
bad come to America when an iif;int. She
was a type of that Irish beauty is scarce in
these days, according to John Brougham,
as hens' teeth. Dark blue eyes, like wells
of living water, shaded by long, dark
lashes, blue-black hair, and a complexion
that was simply marvelous, were added to
a sweet voice, graceful form ai d manners
at once piquant and modest. Her father
was a day laborer, and the fanriiy lived in
nester street, above Knee.
Although Diana fully appr-ciated the
exigencies of her position, the re was one
temptation she could not foreg3, and that
was dancing. When only C y ars old she
had taken lessons from Signor Julian, who
had a school at Tenth and V.ne streets.
The fact that he was an Irish nan named
McCaskcy did not make him less efficient
as a teacher, and when his pupil was 12!
years oia lie secured her emr loyment at
the Walnut Street theatre in cue of those
t'Ial)orate bullets that so deliglted our un
sophisticated grandfathers. Her talent
soon won recognition, and the dollar she
received for each performance: did much
for the family income.
DANCING WINS A HTSBaXD.
Xo whisper of this had reacLed her em
ployer, and it was not until she w.is IS that
Manager Wood made her an ofTer of $18 a
week and it became necessary for her to
quit Miss Lang. That lady was a good
Presbyterian, and looked on t he stage as
the broad road to destruction but Diana
justified herself through the family neces
sities, and she now went on t he stage as
danseusc premiere and took tae name of
Her success was pronounced from the
first, and the jeuncssedoree, represented in
those days by gawky young gentlemen in
gorgeous vests and clashes st tight that
they looked as if skewered onto tbe wearer,
paid the pretty dancer many sc.ueaky com
pliments, at which she laughed good na
turedly, though she discreet y kept ber
admirers nt a distance.
About 1S-43 one of the Uarinf s, a nephew
of Lord Ashburton, visited this country
and was welcomed by tbe best society with
effusion. With him came a vouug Eng
lishman named Richard Haniy. He saw
Miss Lee at the theatre, was struck with
her grace and beauty and Been red an in
troduction. He was athorougl gentleman,
and addressed her not as a professional but
as a lady.
Diana fell in love with a rapidity that
startled herself. After a mon h's quiet at
tentions Hardy spoke out. He loved her
and wished to make her hi wife. She
spoke to kindly Billy Wood tae manager.
He played the part of heavy father to per
fection; pointed out the evatescent char
acter of success on tbe stage, t he hardships
and perils of professional life and advised
her not to neglect an opportunity of secur
ing a position at once permacent and hon
orable, as he had no doubt tt at her avenir
as a wife would be a happy oi e.
A BEAUTIFUL WIFE.
Diana accepted Hardy, acd they were
married at St. Joseph's by Father Harbe
lin. In society it was regarledas a dis
tinct mesalliance; the bride pxr, an Irish
girl and a stage dancer; but Hardy and his
pretty wife cared nothingf or t be opinions of
the broadbrims and Aminadi .b Sleeks that
prevailed then in Philadelphia, and left at
once for New York. Before the honey
moon was over the first trouble came.
Hardy's father warned his son that such a
marriage would end all intercourse with
his family, but Richard had means of his
own and found no trouble i i getting em
ployment. In less than a year old H irdy relented,
and his son and wife left f( r England to
find the father's wealth swept awuy by re
verses in trade. .
Sir James Hardy was Richard's uncle,
and the head of the family. Ho was enor
mously wealthy, and had bu one sou. He
also resented the union his nephew had
made, and dying about-this time, left him
out of his will. Between the inheritance
to his vast Kentish propert y and Richard
Hardy were the lives of eig-it people, and
yet, bytbe caprice of fortune . all these van
ished in two years and Rich ird became a
baronet and his wife Lady B ardy.
She took her place in society with a
grace nd-dignity-thafewere natural gifts,
and.grew more.beantifuLas :ime went by.
Her first sorrow was the dee th of her hus

watery cough remedies are called balsam's
bnt such are not. Look through a bottle
of Kemp's Balsam and notice what a pure,
thick preparation it is. If you cough
use Kemp's Balsam. At all druggists'.
