IFrom St. James' Oazetle.l Mr. William Black, the popular nov elist, tells an ninuslnjr story of how he was persistently taken lor somebody else, antl has never been able to con vince the persons concerned that he is really himself aud not the other man. Home considerable time ago The wrote recently in Messrs. Tillolsou's Syndicate of Provincial Newspapers I received a letter from a Mrs. AlacV iuloriiiiiig ine that certain people and incidents in a particular novel ot mine were known only to herself ami to a nephew of hers, who was thought to have been drowned at sea some years Indole, and that, as 1 must necessarily bo lhat ucphow, it was incumbent on uio to come forward aud resume my own name ami recognize my telatlves, hersull IliHt ol all. 1 paid Utile heed ; but as year alter year went by, i found Irom the repealed letters sue sent mo- some of llioin quite plaintive iu their appeals that this was no temporary hallucination, but a veritable beliel; and thai the poor old lady was deeply disircHHud by my uudulilul conduct Then I set lo work to try to undeceive her. 1 pointed out that 1 should be glad to take the name ol MacV , if 1 hud any right lo It, seeing that that is a much more distinguished name than my own, which in certain districts iu the south of Scotland and in the west ern liltrlilands is a common as Smith is in Kiiiiluud. 1 asked her what motive 1 could have for concealing my identity whv I should refuse to recognize her .... as my aunt, u she were my auui. l had meanwhile made sure Ibat there was no eleemosynary purpose iu tl.e old dame's piteous cry ;on the contrary she had promised that il I would only uiiunt that 1 was Neil MacV alio would alonce get for me some jewelry und other ihuii's loft for mo by my mother, who, il seems, was a native of Ske. Well, argument was ot no avail Then I sent friends lo assure her that she wus mistaken: no use. I asked her to write lo a U. P. minister who had known me all inv lite I thought sho would have confidence in him, il in anybody short ol au archangel but she darkly hinted that it was easy lo gel riends lo connive when concealment was the object. So lime passed; the reproachlnl remonstrances, the pious counsel, the hope that 1 would see Iho inhuman iiigralituile ol my ways ere it was loo lule lor me to make atonement, were repealed in every letter; ami 1 could not but admire the composure ol countenance on Ibe part ol the hall- pot tcr at Iho club, for there was not a trace of consciousness on bis l.tce as he nanocti mo uiose missives, eacu ot which had "alias Neil MacV " on the envelope. Then, hh it chanced, 1 was in a small fishing town in the west Highlands; and word was brought me that Mrs MacV and a niece ol hers had come IV'iui some considerable distance in the hope tt tit 1 would go and see them. I went at once, lor 1 thought this would prove decisive. 1 found al the post ollicc, which was tbe place ol rendez vous, a most respectable lookniK, sen ous, culm, and courteous old highland woman, along with a very pretty and sin uri looking young lauy (tor me moment 1 deeply regretted 1 was not Neil MacV , there being certain small cousinly greetings that one might fairly antl naturally have claimed uudt r i lie circuinstancos), and I lortliwiin as Htiined that now, at least, they would see 1 was not I lie relative they had lost lint 1 was inistakeii. The old lady askt'd me to show her the forefinger of my riuhl hand. I tlid BO. Ah, said she, "the mark' is not lliere ii'iw ; Iml marks like that olien get worn I heii I mined to mo pretty young ladv-with loiiiideiico; I wa-t sure she could not share in (li s delusion. Whv." 1 said, "il your cousiu had not been drowned at sea it he were alive lie 'voiiui.aceortiieg uiyuiirimn hlory, be about eight anil twenty years of iie. Now, dou'l you see lhat I am rather over eight antl twenty? Don't you sec that my hair is turning grey V" Her answer appalled me "Oh," said she tpiito sharply, "that's uolhiug; 1 haye known a young man of two antl twenty whose hair was iiulle while.'' Tnat was not the end; for suhse ijiienlly the whole clan MacV ap pea red lo have taken the mailer up, and Irom lime lo time there came a letter tilled with bitter reproaches, aud also wiih dark threats of exposure Hut that is not the lone in which the old l.iilv licrselt now writes, when she writes at all. Sho has grown resigned; apparently she has given up all hope Unit her un"i alelul nephew will ccme to comfort her declining years. She is no Ionizer iiidiguatit; alio is wistful and pathetic. She hopes (Jod will pardon my unpenitent soul. Ami I hope so, too. I Knuii the New York 8un Nohtii Stamkokh, Conn This peaceful village has been thrown into the wildest excilement over a series of evenis which culminated inanaggavat ed case ol hjhhiiII and battery commit ted by the Kev. Unci Hopkins upon lames W. Ilendrix. a well-known young society man of tuis place. the Kev. Mr. Hopkins is a Uartist miniNier, but lor some years past he has not had an v special charge, but has given his mind and eloquence lo the cause of prohibition. No prohibition meeting iu Fairfield county has been considered complete without Mr. Hop kins to make a speech, and he has traveled as lar north as Litchfield, and at far east even as Willlmantie to address ciii.eus upon the necessity for driving out the saloon and all its works Irom their surroundings. IIib devotion lo the cause led to Ills layor in tne eyes ot Miss Marcella L. Nash, the beautiful and accomplished daughter of Robert U. Nash, Esq., a local merchant prince, whose grocery can fairly be called ono ot the leading business houses of North btamlord. Mr Hopkins is a personable yonng man, and he found lavor in Miss Nash's deep blue eyes from the day of their first meeting at tbe camp at Sea Cliff, over a year ago. ills manly bearing and high principle won him tbe esteem of Miss Nash, and as time progressed Ibis sentiment deepened and grew more tender, until Mr. Hopkius con fessed his love, which Miss Nash bltishingly returned, not because she bad no use for it, but as an evidence of good faith. 15 tit Mr. IS ash opposed tbe match on the really defensible ground Ibat the public sentiment demanded tbe liberty of taking a drink If one chose, aud be wasn't going to give his daughter, to be afhruied, to no ranting prohibition ist. The fact is that in the rear of his line grocery emporium Mr. Nash made a specialty of that form of merchandise known as wet groceries, and your correspondent would take this oppor tnuily to state that no finer goods nor bettor assortment than Mr. Nash's can be' found in any similar store between New York ami Bridgeport, whatever cliitns may he advanced by certain bumptious citizens of South Norwalk. And bis cigars are also oi unvarying excellence, because he selects them per sotia.ly, and Mr. Nasb knows a good Oifar when he sees it. Mr. Nash did not feel like giving his daughter lo a man who would, as he said, ''learn her lo bale him for a ruin seller," and he remained steadfast ami unmoved by tbe entreaties of Miss Marcella and her mother, who had long looked with regrettui eye, so village rumor savs, nn ibe back room in Ibe grocery. But all that her father could say was not euough to shake Miss Marcclla's allegiance to Mr. Hop kins. Sho told her most intimate Iriend the charming and distingue Miss Mabel R St. John, whose spirited roau coll is often seen whirling its fair rider over the bills ol North btamlord, that she could never love anv otber man tbar. Mr. Hopkins, and that she only hoped ht r pa would come aronnd. This information is direct, and was obtained only by the special facilities possessed by your correspondent. While Mr. Nasb did not approve ot Mr. Hopkins, he did not go so tar as to refuse him permission lo wait npon hi daughter. In fact, ss that young lady once said, aDon bis hinting at stern measures, "She abonld like to tea him try it." Miss Marcella has a fine, free way with her, and a master ful disposition, inherited from her father, and. as Miss St. John ouce said, "When M'Oella sets out for a thing, she's liable to make lolks stand round.'' Recently, according lo a state nieui made by Mr. Nasb, the first melon of the season was imported Into North Stamford, it was exposed for sale at Mr. Nash's grocery store, and it so happened Ibat il was bought by Mr. James W. Ilendrix, a hitherto popular young society leader and the chief clerk in Uuskirk'a drug store. Now Mr. Ilendrix bad also been a snitor lor the hand of Miss Marcella N.isb. ami had won marks ot distin guished lavor from that young lady, when the Rev. Mr. Hopkins bad enter ed upou I he scene and supplanted him in Miss Nash's affections. Mr.- lieu diix, moreover, had been acceptable to Mr. Nasb, and on the turning ol Miss Marcel la's heart to the prohibitionist minister Mr. ilendrix aud Mr. jxasn bad condoled with each other aud talked over the situation lrequently iu Mr. Nash's back room, lll-uatured persti: a have been found to say that a community ot interest in re rum, as Squire Latham put il one day, evoking rours ol laughter, caused the lather and su tor lo clasp hands eveu more fer vently than had love alone impelled tboir minds. Just alter Mr. Ilendrix had bought the watermelon, aud before it had been st ill to Ids boardiug bouse, the Rev. Mr. Hopkins came along and wauled to buy it. Mr. Nasb told tbe reverend geuilemen that this melon was sold, but lhat bo would get another lor Dir. 1 lopkius in a day or two. This ai range- uiout was satisiaciory. This happened on Wednesday, llml night being popularly known as 'girl night" in JNortn biamiora, ine Rev. Mr. Hopkins called npon Miss Marcella, while 110 nutortuuate Mr. ilendrix, bereft ol a girl, called around al Mr. Nash's grticery, as usual, to talk things over. Now, which of these I wo men proposed tne scnenie can not bo stated positively. Miss Isabel R. St. John, the queenly equestrienne of North Stamford, says that she believes llml it was the jealous suitor, burning with rsge at the thought of bis success ful rival al lhat very moment iu Mr. Nash's parlor with Miss Marcella. 15 it I whether Ibe idea originated with father or luckless suitor, tney ciaspeu lianas warmly in inlauiuus compact to inflict trouble upon a young lady whoBiiould have been dearer to bulb than revenge, aud to bring scandal upon a man whose (.acred cslliiitr should have slaid their impious bauds. They planned it all out then aud there, aud when the next day (Thurs day) the watermelon came tor the Rev. ItopkiuH, these two men, as they shaiiielcht-lv confess, proceeded to plug it, and Ihen poured into the watermelon i.y little and little, a quart of chain liauue. as everybody snows. a water melon will take up a large quantity ol liiiuid into its porus and blushing heart. This melon was a large, line one aud il absorbed the contents ol the bottle of champagne by careful coaxing until, as Mr. Nash says with au effront ery hard to imagine possible, "Thar wu'n'l enough lett lor a decent drink. Then these two men set Iho water melon in the ice box aud wailed lor the Rev. Mr. Hopkins. That gentleman mioii came along and inquired if his waiei inelou hud arrived. Mr. Vash handed il out and look Ibe money. Then Mr. Hopkins took the opportunity lo make a lew remaiks upou the virtues ot waier us a beverage, aud said lhat the rliielest charm about a watermelon was that it was cooling, but not heath; lelresliing, but never harmful except to a disordered stomach; sweet and good lor the use of man as the bub. bliug wale trout the mountain spring mid he said I lie very name was a talis man. Who won hi over buy a whisky melon or a hraudymelon or a giumeloui' Nobody 1 The watermelon appealed lo t very heart, ami aa for this one. he proposed to eat the whole ol it hiiuaelf lor iho very joy oi the water it contain ed. When Mr. Hopkins bad concluded his little eulogy Mr. Nasb was observ ed to laugh. The clergyman made no protest, but merely walked off to bis boarding house, a most excellent estab lishmenl, under the personal direction ol Aunt Polly Rates, whoso cookies have won such encomiums at church sociables lor many years in North Stamford. Aunt I'olly's house is always crowded iu summer witti lead ng residents of all the large cities of he country, who haye boarded wltb her every summer since the war. and will go nowhere else. that night alter tea Mr. Nash salon Uhed his wile and daughter by staying at home iiiKlead ol going lo iho store. He said he llioimlu Iviiiy !5rowH, the popular and elliclem clerk wuo is rapidly geiiiuif lo bo Mr. Nash's riirhl- hand man, could look out lor trade About 7 o'clock Mrs. Nash and .Mar- ella were utterly diimblutimletl by the appearance ol Mr. Ilendrix, who said was a pleasant evening, though it might rain the next day; just as if his was not a very unusual event'. Mr. Nash appeared to be laboring under some suppressed menial excitement, so iuiss jxasii told Miss fet. John the uext day, aud boih be aud Mr. Ilendrix acted very strangely. the family and their unwonted guest were silting on the piazza, aud it had not yet grown dark when a most extraordinary spectacle presented itself lo tlioin. The Rey. Mr. Hopkins came down (he street exactly as it he were beating into the teeth t m heavy gale. When opposite the gate of the Nasb mansion lie slopped, threw up his bands and seemed about lo tail. Miss Nash started lo her leet. "Is he siinstrock?" she cried. Just then Mr. Hopkins, who bad been tumbling at the hitch, toiind eulrance, ami ran very rapidly up Ibe broad front walk between tbe flower beds so much admired by visitors to onr town. When he reached the steps he halted, poised himsell lor a moment, and then saiti , with a bland ami win ning smile: "VVIiaz.er uiazzer?'' lielore his remarkable question wss fairly out of his lips, he espied Mr. Ilendrix sitting beside Miss Nash. Mr. Hopkins' brow conlrncted into a savage frown, and he shook his ti-d actually shook his list and his sable arm toward Mr. Ilendrix and offered lo tight thai voting man for the drinks. Then be said, with an air of impartial beuevoleuce, "I know 'tain't Wednes- d'y night, M'shella, but I thought I'd come around anyhow, just because 1 felt so good I" "I leel so bully, repeated the Rev Mr. Hopkins, 'F I felt any belter, by got, I b heve I couldu t sbtand IU" At these remarks Miss Marcella and Mrs. Nash both lied shrieking into tbe house. It were better to hasten through the unpleasant recital of what followed on the lawn. Both Mr. Ilendrix and Mr. Nash solemnly affirm that Mr, Hopkins felt so good that it took them both to keep bun Irom tearing tbe piazza down, throwing the lawn-mower into I he well, standing on his head iu the flower beds, aud otherwise mis conducting himsell. Aud all the time his lauguage was most lamentable to hear Irom a good young man, aud he burst into songs ot a most unfortunate description, involving assertions as to the hour at which he proposed to go home, aud embodying allusions to selling ber up again, and the mountain dew, and the flowing bowl, and other wiles ot the destroyer. He was lint I ly removed to his lesidence, and alter listening to his remarks as be dropped asleep Aunt I'olly Bates said to a Iriend that she had never seen the like in her lite before, and hoped she never vould again, aud bim a minister, too. That was on Thursday night. On Friday .about 11 o'clock in the lorenoon. the Rev. Mr. Hopkins was observed to walk hastily through tbe village, heed less of the whispers that followed bim. straight to Buskirk's drug store, The store was not ciowded, although the stock of drugs, chemicals, soap, per fumery, sponge, tooth brushes, combs, hair brushes and toilet articles of every description is one ot the finest to be found in Fairfield county. Mr. Ilen drix was engaged iu drawing a glass ol soda water Irom Mr. Buskuk s elegant new ounlain for a local belle who desires that her name should not be piloted, though her charming lace is familiar to many ot your readers who are accustomed to spend I heir vacations in North Stamford. Just as Mr. Ilen drix was handing the soda lo Miss R'b-n s-ii with his most admirable manner he received a smashing blow on tbe head from the umbrella of the Riv. Mr. Hopkins, Thai enraged man tollowed up his lead with a heavy bottle of perfumery which stood near by on a case, and though Mr. Ilendrix conntered quickly with the large wet sponge used to wipe the soda fminlain be could not escape the lull force ol the blow. Miss R-b-n-s-n rati into the street calling lor help. When the police lon e ot North Slamlord ariived al I he drug store he found Mr. Ilendrix and ir Hopkins lying on the floor, locked iu deadly embiace, pommeling each oiber witb more ardor than skill, liotu were arrested as promptly as tbe police lorce could bring It about, and Mr ilendrix was subsequently allowed to make a charge ol assault against Mr, Hopkins and then released upon parole THE LILY-WHITES CALL.
