MAT 22, 1874 ! COIU'S 0ELI S1O. Cora Depeyter pined r prince. Not a couimon prince like snuffy old liubsian we used t wearing a ereasj fnr-,collar long overcoat, eating garlic the see, and and drinkttJg brandj three times ('iurn &Uy, atad growling at ererythiog American in the most detestable English. Nothing of the kind. She pined for a prince such as we read about iu the fine' old senti mental novels that amused our fathers and mothers in the flower of their youth; a Thaddeus of War saw, all talent, and pallor, and tendernefa, and musical voice, fine, rolling ejea, and pedigree, that sort of thing. For var part I don't believe and and in ; such princes. The Prince oi Wales isn't one of that specie, and I'm afraid the breed has gone out with the fine old sentimental novels. Nothing else, however, would suit Miss Cora Depeyster. Being not totally unlike other fair damsels of twenty or thereabouts, she desired to experiment upon the etate mat rimonial, and had plenty of oppor tunities, but common clay would not do. A prince she must have or single she would remain. Now, a real good writer of senti mental atoriea could create such a being especially tor the emergency, and, after the customary amount of tantaliaation through the medium of an obstinate parent or what not, marry off Miss Cora and her prince in the most satisfactory style. But 1 never was good at sentimental creation. I must write about people I know and see. am sorry for the Coras. I've seen lota of them; bat what sort of prinees did they marry ? One now pours tea for a sharp-nosed, red-headed life insur ance agent. . Another is the spouse of a strapping farmer, who sits with hat on ana eats in hi shirt-sleeves. Another wedded a subdued German who plays second clarionet in a cheap orchestra, and has to move monthly because he can't pay his rent. Still another but the cata logue grows melancholy. Thus with all the Coraa. They go on pining for princes who never come; marrying all torts of people instead; and, dying, give way to a fresh race of Coras, who follow in their raamma'a footstep with a disre gard of experience that savors cf the sublime. One of the sweetest of watering places is Happy Valley. It is romantie and comfortable at onoe. There is delightful bathing, rowing, sailing, and fishing in the lake itself, and the shady groves that line its shores are cool and green and mys terious, and suggestive of dryads and nymphs and fairies and things. That is, if you happen to be of a poetic turn of mind. If not, they only suggest flirtations. I will not further expatiate upon the delights of Happy Valley, lest it should be faneiea that 1 have lots for sale in the vicinity, whereas I have none anywhere not even a burial lot; and that, I believe, is the common lot of all. Neither did Cora Depeyster have any real estate to dispose of, but she thought just as I do and passed much of the time every summer in the fair demesnes that lie smilingly adja cent to the Happy vralley Pavilion. Notwithstanding the round of pleasures in which she every summer took prominent part, she could not stifle her inward and continuous yearning for the music ofa princely voice, the glance of devotion from princely eyes, the touch of a princely hand in the dance, and the sweet envy of all maidens who had to go pnnceless through life. She sighed a great deal, and began to think the gTeat world a cold, hard, unrotnantic sort of an arrangement. Of course, you and I know better. I never wrote a romance yet half sd wonderful as the simplest life would make were it truly told. The only trouble is that the simplest life can not be truly told. It seems easy, but you try it once ! Though there was no prince among the Pavilion boarders, there was a poet. Arthur Bayne was there. It is barely possible that Cora might have fallen in love with him; there is something every fine and hyfalutin pardon the expres sion in a young lady's idea of a poet. But then Arthur Bayne was altogether different from her ideal. He knew the world too well to believe in its hollowness. He had found it in fact a very round, hard, and stubborn sort of thing. 1 notice that men who hav rea.ly been shaken up a bit in the merry goround we call life are not apt to preserve the outside show of senti mentalism to any great extent. We all start off, some time or another, with our long hair, our turn-down collars, our sable suits, our brigand hats, and our little hidden sorrows; but when we have cut our eyesteetn and learned something about other folks' trouble w always come back to reason, to plaid reckties, to stove pipe hats and the barber. Arthur was too matter of fact for Cora and she 100 sentimental for him from any hymeneal point of view, yet the' somehow became very excellent and very intimate friends. One t'veninir they sat in the f-hore of the lake together. Cora was gazing at the moon, of course. She was one of that kind. She had been telling Arthur what kind ot hero she had imagined for her a heart-biatory, and described the prince with his melting eyes and musical voice, his generous natare and magnificent air, his mild melancholy and inexhaustible affec tion, his irreproachable morals and aristocratic birth. Arthur listened with due gravitv until she had finish ed. " Why don't yon take uie ?" he asked. " I am not very rich, but then poverty is romantic. 1 can't play the guitar, but I know a fellow who is splendid on the banjo. As for a fine antique family, my father was Mr. Bayne, son of Old Bayne; I believe he never went to State prison." " Now, Arthur, you are too bad! You make fun of everything." " Well, to be serious, child, you'll never find your prince." "And why not?" " Because they don't make 'em. Most men are tolerably human, and humanity is not perfection. Tf a mm has no other small vices he is sure to chew tobacco, write poetry, or keep a dog. We are fair but frail,' we men." " Ah, Mr. Bayne ! what a world it is ! I wish there might be some place where one might go and hide away and dream in peace." " There is; and I am going there now. I refer to my bed." The next morning tho belles of Happy Valley were in a twitter. The late train the night before had brought a new young man, and young men were not a drug at the Pavilion. The new comer had taken the finest suite in the establish ment, and a great pile of trunks with his initials stood in the vesti bule, where they were jealously regarded by the other young men, heartbroken with the consciousness of possessing but a single trunk, and that, perhaps, a small one. When it became known that the unknown was really on the piazza, smoking a cigar, all sorts or diplo matic maneuvers were resorted to get a near sight of him on the part of the young ladies. Cora Depeyster denouueed it as an exhibition of brazen ill-breeding in others. As for herself, she stood only at her window, which com manded the piazza, and scrutinized him through an operasglass. Montgomery Smythe for such was the name which appeared on the register in three days found himself a favorite with the ladies. He was of the conventionel type of magnificence the black-haired, black-eyed, red. cheeked style, with small feet, dyed mustache, and eye glasses. In the matter of scarfs and neckties, with the jeweled pins thereto devoted, he was truly gor. geous. If a man has the least taint of vulgarity, let him beware of his neck. Too much thoracic decora tion ruins one. A great change came over Cora. She was sad and gay by fits ; irrita ble, changeable, and incomprehen sible. There is no use of wasting words about it. She was in love. Her prince had come. As tie days wore on this regal person developed. He gave sup pers in his room to the young bloods, and organized picnic parties in the woods thereabouts, which made the belles of the Pavilion quite miserable witli happiness. To Cora's intense delight he made her in some sort the central figure in these last charming affairs, and held profound consultations with her concerning the details, they thus became associated in a certain degree before the public eye, and when rumor whispered an engage ment Cora did little more than blush and stammer a denial that sounded ever si much like a con firmation. She gave herself up to a sort of blind adoration of Montgomery Smythe. She made a prince of him first, and put all of her trust in him afterwards. He told her of his ancient family ; of his late fath er, Judge Dewey, twice United States Senator, and son of Commo dore Smythe, of the war of 1812. The commodore's father, he said, was General Smythe, of Revolu tionary fame, and brother to Gov ernor Smythe, of one of the colo nies under George 171. He talked of the magnificent old country-seat his father had left him, with its picture-gallery full of the portraits of tba old worthies just mentioned and their wives ; all uniforms and brocades and gold braid and laces ; of the long drawing-rooms the grand dining-hall, the library, the grounds all in true baronial style, till Cora, rich and luxuriously reared as she was, began to look up to him as a being of an alto gether different and higher sphere. One day they took a walk in the grove in the rear of the Pavilion. It was the closing up of the season, and the next day there was to be a genera! exodus of the Happy Valley boarders to their homes. Cora felt that the decisive moment had arrived ; and it had. The hitherto pent-up devotion of Mont gomery Smythe found vent at last in a declaration and a proposition. He vowed his love in a perfectly princely style, and having been ac cepted w ith a good many blushes and tears, just as is the case in all well -written novels, he informed her that letters just received from his confidential agent in Europe compelled him to start iminetfiate: ly for Paris, and urged her to mar ry him at once without waiting to go through the form of asking the permission of her grand-sire or con sulting her friends. Was he not Montgomery Smythe ? and who could posibly object to such an al liance ? It is very possible that Cora might have consented, so infatuated was she with her prince, but she bad read that the regular thing was to demand time for consideration, so she postponed her decision which, really was already made until evening. As they reached the piazza, he lazily tapping his glossy boot with his bamboo, and she very tremulous and very happy, a thickset, pock mark individual, with black, heavy whiskers and a glazed cap, came down the steps and, nodding to Smythe, said : I would like to say a private word to you, young man," Montgomery Smythe suddenly stopped tapping his boot and, turn ing pale, looked sharply at the stranger. A slight vibration of that person's eyelid made him turn still paler, and without a word he walked several steps away from the Pavilion. The stout man then slowly drew a large pocket book from his breast, favored Smythe with a view of certain documents therein contained, immediately after which he said aloud : "You're my prisoner, sir, in the hands of the law !" Cora felt like fainting, but her curiosity was more than a match for her weakness. Smythe looked toward her, laughed a little, gasping laugh, and tried to say that this ridicu lous mistake could be easily ex plained. " Let this person explain it, then," said Cora, trembling all over. " Why, you see, Miss," said the stout man, " I'm a detective officer, and I've been laying for this youug gentleman some time. I have his photograph here, Miss, if you'd like to see it." And he produced a i-arte de visite the very twin of one Cora had but that moment stowed away among her treasures. . " There ain't any mistake about ?rim, is there ?" said the detective, grimly. " But for what for what i he is is he arrested ?" faltered the poor girl. " Why, miss, you see, he left California too suddenly, with all the spare cash of the proprietor of the Pacific Hotel thirty thousand dollars and a matter of five thou sand dollars more in jewelry, belonging te the boarders of the house." " But, Mr. Smythe" " Smythe ! that ain't his name, Miss. He's plain Bill Higgins, fancy bar-keeper of the Pacific. I'm very sorry for you, Miss. I don't s'pose you had any idea who you were with. Good morning." She looked at Montgomery Smythe, but he did not raise his eyes nor open hi3 mouth. Plainly, the detective had told the truth. She turned to the hotel. Hap pily, the whole affair had escaped notice. Montgomery Smythe was al ready on his way to the depot, arm in arm with the stout man, and as they turned a bend in the road Cora took a last, sad farewell look at her prince. The shock made her seriously ill, and when she recovered the nonsense was pretty thoroughly washed out of her. Arther Bavne was not the man to triumph over the fall of any one. On the contrary, he was too generous, and when people began to make remarks about this unfor tunate episode in Cora's existence he married her himself to shut their mouths. The published plan of the West ern scientist for producing rain is to " elevate a copper wire by a bal loon, or other means, until its upper end reaches the clouds," hitch the lower end to a railroad, and send up currents of electricity. All a farmer has to do for a safeguard against drought is to buy a balloon, three or fenr miles of copper wire, a battery, a railroad, and some gas words. Where is the artist that can por tray the expression that passes over a man's face when he finds that a street car conductor has given him too much change ?

A mouse that dwelt near the abode of a great magician was kept in such constant distress by its fear of a cat, that the magi cian taking pity on it, turned it into a cat itself. Immediately it began to suffer from its fear of a dog, so the magician turned it into a dog. Then it began to suffer from fear of a tiger, and the magician turned it into a tiger. Then it began to suffer from its fear of huntsmen, and the magician in dis gust, said, " Be a mouse again. As you have only the heart of a mouse, it is impossible to help you by giv in you tho body of a nobler animal." And the poor creature again became a mouse. :.-.. hi Dainty Word::. i ; :-. r'v ri'Mi.i;';.;: ii;w-ur--4 i' j. r v -TiMf, ; r In I t Sty :!it 1'. -.: -fit nit:! 1 ! et :i-r I.i! ile;s rii i ; , u4 fattt! iiSlVay.' oeennv. 44 ."

It is high time to speak of foul doings in high or low places as they deserve. Things should be called by tlicir right names. Give the defaulter his cognomen of thief. When a man -.hoots down his neigh bor write murderer across his brow. Let this rule be adopted, and in no rank or degree of life in our country will sin so plate itself with gold as to become invulnerable to the shafts and bolts of public opinion. Mii:t Whab an Old Man Has Noticed I have noticed that ail men are honest when well watched. I hae noticed that purses will hold dimes as Well as dollars. I have noticed that in cnl- r u be a reasonable creature it is nec essary at times to be downright mad. I have noticed that silks, broad cloths and jewels, are often bought with other people's money. 1 have noticed that the prayer of tho selfish man, is "Forgive us our debts," while he makes everybody who owes him pay to the utmost farthing. I have noticed that he who thinks every man a rogue i- certain to see one when he shaves himself, and he ought, in mercy to his neigh bor, to surrender the rascal to jus tice. I have learned that money is the fool's wisdom, the knave's reputa tion, the poor man's desire, the covetous man's ambition, and the idol of all. I have noticed that all men speak well for all men's virtues when they are dead, and the tombstones are marked with the epitaphs of the good and virtuous. Is there any particular cemetery where the bad are buried ?" Alexander II. The present Emperor of Russia, Alexander II., is in most respects unlike the rest of European sover eigns. He is neither fond of mili tary pageants, like his uncle, Wil liam I. of Germany ; nor does he like to occupy himself with state affairs, like Francis Joseph of Aus tria. Victor Emmanuel's affability toward the lowly is foreign to his haughty reserved nature and his own people even charge him with being more of a German than one of their own race. I'ut in one respect Alexander II., shares the predilections of his brother sover eigns : he is a passionate hunter. And in this respect he is a true Russian, too ; for his favorite sport, like that of the- true Muscovites, is neither deer-stalking nor fox hunt ing, neither spearing the wild-boar nor followed the swift-footed ibex and chammois to their AIninc fast- I nesses, but bearding the brown bear j in midwinter in the sombre pine i forests, extending for hundreds ol , miles in the level and sandy coun ! try nor,lieat of the Gulf of Fin . land. Realizing his Stewardship. The princely and pcipetual giv ing of the late Deacon S ifl'ord, of . Boston, led many to suppose he was a millionaire; but to the astonish ment oven of those who knew l.ini best, at his death, ho h-l't a little less than $30,00J. Cndcr a c .n- staii t sense of his roponsi! iiity as . steward, be cheerfully houortd ali ' the calls upon his benevolence and was wont to acknowledge himself , under obligation to the; wh pre sented appeals to his charity.
