NOT SO EASILY WON. "You seem comfortably sure of her, Tom." "Well, why not, my dear Jack, wlim I've onlv to ask, aad the lit? tle lady is mine? I'm immensely taken wirb her, and I've bung off about?1' The dip of advancing oars then drowned the rest of the sentence, hut Miss Daisy Campbell in her hammock behind the alders had heard enough to destroy her peace. Fearful of betraying her presence by the movement of a finger, the girl lay rigid as marble, watching with strained eyes two fragiant bine wreaths of siri'oke gliding past her retreat, till through an opening in the bushes further up the brook she caught a fleeting glimpse of a bitch canoe beneath the smoke, and of the smokers, too gay sun? burned youths with guns and fish iugrods. Tom Raymond sat in the stern, tall, handsome Tom, who had j but now boasted of his ea-y con quest of herself. In that moment of wounded pride and tierce, indig? nation MissDaisy thought that she could have cheerfully seen him drown. '??Oh, she's a daisy,' hummed .lack McKeen; and as the mocking tenor smote her ear the quivering listener thought she could have seen j .lack drown, too?the saucy, idle tell tale! Why need he proclaim to the Iritis of the air and the tishes of the water that the lady in ques tion, Tom's little lady to be had fur the asking, was no other than herself, Mix Bluut's city niece, lit? tle niece, little Daisy Campbell!? How indelicate, outrageous! Ami yet the song hurt her far less than Tom's Tunis. It' Tom Ray mood, could speak so lightly ot'her, why might not Jack sing w hat he pleased, and all Oakland listen.' So that was the way Tom was in the habit of talking about her! She bad heard before that young men by themselves wore execs.1 rely free in discussing their lad jl'.eiids, and now she had proof of the fact. Unmannerly, detestable creatures, especially Tom! '?'I've only to ask, and the little lady's mine,1 those were his very words,'' moaned hapless little Dai sy, biding her hot face among the hammock cushions in an agony of humiliation. She had always felt that if Tom had a faul! it was self conceit, but she wouldn't have be? lieved he could be so conceited as this. What had she said or done to warrant his boastful assertion! She would challenge Aunt Abhy, she would challenge Tom's sister, to say that she had ever been silly with Tom. If there bad been any silliness, it bad been ou her side, unless?truthful Daisy winced at the recollection?unless?well, per? haps fche did let Tom hold her hand an instant longer than necessary the day he helped her over the fence, and she wished she Ir.d not clung to him in the thunder-storm. Rut at eighteen what girl likes to be a prude! Though, for that matter, had she not more thau once during their summer's acquaintance suub bed Tom lor trying to make love to her! Still, he'd only to ask, and the little lady was his. That was his version of the story, and he had gloated over it to Jack. Daisy lifted her tousled brown head defi? antly, and sat bolt upright. "i won't be crushed?I will not!" she cries aloud, dashing her tears right and left. UFII go to Pinafore to-night just as il I'd overheard nothing, and if he chooses to ask fur the little lady, why, lie may.? She's sure of h r own mind at last. She'll have her answer ready." Springing from the hammock, j Miss Daisy walked with martial I tread through the gaiden into the kitchen to help Aunt Abby shell the peas tor dinner. "You must have been lying in the sun, child," said the lady, glancing up iroin the pan in her lap. "It's bad lor your eyes and bad for your complexion. 1 don't believe that's a good place for the hammock." "It's a horrid place," responded Daisy, falling savagely to work.? "j'm going to ask Abram to hang it where it was before." Abram was the intermittent hell? of the Bluut establishment, who carried ou the farm and came night and morning to milk the cow. From the day she became a visitor in the household he had been Miss Daisy's willing slave, and now that Mr. Blunt was temporarily absent, the honest servitor took it upon him? self to look in at odd hours "to see if Miss Blunt and that posy faced little niece of hers needed doiuy tor." "Maybe fresh buttermilk will ihelp that sunburn," pursued Mrs, I?lunt, still misinterpreting the realise of Mirs Daisy's heightened color. "I'd try it. You'll hate to go to the falls ax red as a hollyhock"." ; f hate to leave you alone so late in the evening.auntie,"s tiil Daisy, throwing a handful of empty pods at the chickens by the door stone, "f'nijafraid you'll be nervous about the tramp that called this morning.' "Xonsense, my dear. I'm not, ou of the nervous sort. I always stay by myself nights when your uncle goes to his lodge meeting-'. If! get tired and sleepy, I lock the doors and go to bed. When I lie on my good ear I can't hear a sound, you know, and your uncle can come in without waking me." "But how does he get in!" "Oh, he takes a key; we have two for the front door. There's the ex? tra one over the clock. You'd hor | ter have it to-night; then, if I don't 'feel like sitting up for you, I won't You won't be likely to...get0 home beibjj- twelve." By-twilight Mis-; Daisy's crimson had softened into sea-shell pink.? Aunt Abby flattered herself that she hail never seen the child hand? somer than when, in filmy draper? ies, she floated down the piazza steps to Tom Raymond's waiting phaeton. ?'The irifatua'ed boy looks'as if he was beholding an angel from heaven," muttered the pleased Iady,, who dearly loved Tom. But she said, prosaically; "Do drive carefully, Tom. Daisy, did you lake the key?" "Yes, Auntie, it's in my pocket." "Foeket??can they put pockets in sen-foam?" laughed Tom. tuck ing the linen lap-robe about the y< ung lady's billowy flounces. "I fee .my self quite inadequate to the c .re of thisjIurTy elegance, Mrs. B nut, 1 do assure yon." "But. it's his; has only to isk ami it's all his," thought Miss ~Daisy, scornfully, as she bade her aunt a gay good bye. In the winde rogion roundabout there was not a lovelier drive than this fiv*> miles between Oakland and Oakland Falls. Taking it by moonlight, on a, perfect July even? ing, with a fascinating young lady by Iiis side, and a spirited horse obedient to his will, Tom Raymond mentally acknowledged that the conditions were favorable, for en? joyment. He had been planni"?? this tete-a-tete tor days: indeed i had gone so far as to formulate cei tain momentous spreche-! to be de livered ou this occasion, hut with the strongest desire to lead the con? versation into sentimental chan? nels, he was continually babied by an intangible something in Miss Daisy's manner. He spoke of a lovely !>ird he was mounting cspe oi..i!4~rV)i" herself,?lud ched;<<unnr>ed of the swallows in Aunt Abby's obimney; he hinted at man's craving for affection, and she deplored Abrain'.-* craving for drink; he quoted Aurora Leigh, and she cited Mother Goose. She sang unusually like Deacon Shed, mimicked'Squire Eddy's late Fuurth-of-July oration, and, in a wont, was as captivating, frivolous and reckless as a heavy hearted giil well could oe. A-.she passed Grace Raymond in the hall, that young lady whispered to Jack McKeen that Daisy Campbell was the bellewf the. audience. "With one exception, of course," amended gallant Jack. Proud, sensitive little Daisy! Siie pretended to listen to the mu? sic; but from Lord Admiral to Lit tie Buttercup the euliie company seemedato her to be chanting, "I've only to ask, to ask, to ask?I've only to ask for the little lady." Her very fan kept tune to this re frrtin. She was thankful when the opera ended. For all that, on the homeward drive she wished her self back in the hall. It was so bard to meet Tom's lover like gaze with indifference, to school her warm, wayward heart against his tenderness, so precious but yester day! At Ii ist she strove bravely to maintain her former vivacity, but her liveliest sallies fell unheeded. The slogan was in the air. Daisy knew Tom bad somelhing.particu? lar to say. Ah, well, for that mat? ter, so had she. Clasping hei cold little hands together resolutely, she waited in silence. "Daisy, I've been thinking?" "Dangerous symptoms,my young friend; let the doctor prescribe." "I'm going back to the medical school next week, Daisy." "So soon?"?in a tone of cool re? gret.: "And I want- to ask yon, Daisy." "I've only to ask, and the little lady's mine," prompted taunting memory, kindling in Daisy's eyes a dangerous lire. Notwithstanding his vaunted as? surance, Tom hesitated over the vital question, fidgeting with the reins till the horse rebelled and started off at a canter. Having soothrd the animal's ruffley feel? ings, Tom began afresh. "Daisy?" "Well, Mr. Raymond!" "Now, Daisy, you promised to call me Tom." "Did I! It isn't half so pretty a name as Mr. Raymond." "I'm glad if you like my name, Daisy. 1 wish you'd take it Iokeep." "You're too generous, Tom. I'm not a strong-minded woman.? Shouldn't want to be called Mrs. Raymond." "Don't tease, Daisy. You know what I mean. I'm just, dying to make you Mrs. Raymond, my be loved little wife." "1 -honhl have to die if you did, Tom. 'Beloved wives' are always under tombstones." "Do be serious, Daisy. Yon I must know I've been in love with . you from the first day 1 saw you." "Ali," thought Daisy, with curl-; i ing bp, "it I hadn't flayed eaves-1 dropper, what; a happy little sim? pleton I might be!" "Serious, Torn?" j she said aloud: -'I'm literally ser- J ions as the grave. You've made! m .lay at Oakland very pleasant; y .'ve given me glorious drives and ids and I'm uo end obliged'. But in "gard to this new favor you pro ose to coufer upon me, no, no, Tor, I must decline it, thank you." "i vor! Really, Daisy, I fail to see now I've provoked that sir casm." "Let's not talk about it, Tom.? Ah, we're nearly home.'' '?But, Daisy, I must talk about it," pleaded Tom, seizing her hand. "Do you mean you never can care for me? Oh, Daisy, Daisy, don't say it!" His manner was eager, his tone! perilously sweet, though now at the door, lie made no movement to | alight; it seemed as if he could not | ?'let Daisy-'^/l^iir'sh'e--had-promised j to love h' .. '?Don' be absurd, Tom," cried | she, al >st besiile"herself with the I fear 1cm she might yield in spite of everything. "I'll never marry you ?never! never! Why, Tom Ray? mond. I'd as soon m irry that hen ! coop!" To do Daisy justice, she hardly ' knew what she said. Hont on con? vincing h^r ovcrwise lover that she was not h . to be had for the ask? ing, slip ml hurled the ben coop into her ?enreilcc simply for em-J phasis. It woiinrfcd Tom beyond! all exp ssion. To offer himself to a youi lady as a husband, only to! be, rejected by her as a hen-coop?j this he felt was loo much for Inf man natur* to bear. Without fur? ther dallying he helped Daisy dis-1 mount, and drove away with a curt adieu. Wretched Miss Daisy gazed af? ter him with lack-lustre eyes; feel? ing as spiritless as a glass of yea-1 ferday's soda water. How angry he must have been to have left her to unlock the door for herself! Am!, oh, dear, what ailed the key! Would it never, never turn?! Oh, for strong fingers!?Corn's h'u-i gers! Presently it dawned upon j Daisy that there must be some ob? struction in the lock. By the aid i of the moon she peeped in at the. keyhole and saw the trouble. In locking the door on the inside aunt j Ah by hail forgotten to remove the j key! Daisy pulled the bell frantic? ally till the peals echoed through | every room, pulled it till she broke the wire, but no sound of answer ing footsteps came. Far away in the north chamber aunt Abby was laying on her good car, sleeping The sleep of the. innocent. "She never hears anything when ; ?die's on -r left side," groaned j Daisy, " .(I she may not turn over! lor the ght.

Grace could not have ?een home long, for she and Jack ad come the long road by the 1 .-ill. "If I can only get there before I' the lamp goes out!" murmured 1 Daisy, speeding along the street.? What could she do better than to beseech the Raymonds to shelter i her! She knew no other family so well, and, besides, no other famiiy was awake. After what had pass-' ed, she shrank from meeting Tom, but she sin aid lar more from meet ing the tramp whom her excited fancy was perpetually evolving from the shadows. What with fear and haste, she reached the thresh hold breathless. Pushing open the hall door, little vagrant that she was, she stole in upon Grace, busy ill securing the parlor shutters. "Hush, Grace; don't scream? don't rouse anybody," she cried in a hysterical whisper. "1 thought maybe you'd let me sleep with you. I'm locked out." "Locked out, poor dear!" "Yes; I'll tell you all about it presently. Can't I go upstairs first? I'm so tir- !" "You're vhite as a sheet, bird kin. Run p to my room. I'll fol? low as su< as Tom comes in.

"I beg your pardon, Tom, for what I said last night?about the hen coop, you know," she whisper? ed, in dimpled confusion. "I was awfully uaughty. I take it all back."

"You must do no such thing, Daisy Campbell," said Torn, stout? ly, his clouded mind precipitately illumined by the coquettish sparkle III her eye. "By your leave, mad am, I shall take you back to aunt Abby myself, and I shall ask her to lock you in next time, and keep you for me. Come, the carriage, isj ready. We'll ride with the little Lady."?Harper's Bazar. Beautr and Dress. Chiftf among the absnrditit* .ut ter*ul about women is thai of charging her with a peculiar and inordiiia>- love ofcdress, ? We-"have as many coxcombs as we have co? quettes. The latter may be charm? ing; the former are always absurd. There are no incongruities in cos? tume, no frivolity in fashion, no vulgar gaudiness of tinsel, no glar? ing extravagance of figure, no fin? ical measures of detail perpetrated by woman which have not found a coiiufernart in the habiliments of man. Even if it. were true that woman has a greater love of dress than man, there is one defense for her. Ol.l Auacrcoii says, "Nature has given to woman the empire of beauty;" is it not quite natural that she should seek for weapons to pre? serve her empire} Well is it when she employs them with taste und discretion. None but the envious despise the gift of lovMiticss. As there are different styles of beauty, so dif? ferent styles of dress will be more or less becoming; and as a mercen? ary sequence, a woman's natural and legitimate desire to appear to the best advantage will lead her to seek such an attire as will enhance her natural charms. It would be hard to believe any woman who |iroclaiuis an indifference to her personal appearance. We should consider her very affected or very selfish.

Die Silrer Dollars ia the Treasury. The Washington correspondent if the Philadelphia Ledger says:? ?Few persons, perhaps, have any conception of the vastness of the silver now held by the United States in the form of standard sil? ver dollars. The fiscal affairs of the government have been conducted m so magnificent a scale during and since the war of the rebellion that the public, have coo* oregard the sum of fifty millio . r one hun? dred million dollars as an ordinary matter of government admin is tra tioii, and we are so familiar with the more convenient forms of cur? rency in our personal affairs that we do not stop to contemplate the bulk and weight of this steadily in? creasing silvei deposit which finds lodgment in the Treasury. As pre? viously stated, there is now held by the Treasurer 13G,UU0,<?0<) silverdol lar pieces. This is a large sum of money in any form, but it is only when reduced to pounds and tons that an intelligent idea is obtained as to its bulk and weight.

When, in addition to this, it is stated that the Treasury is receiving eacb month 71 cart loads of silver discs, ami that SSO tons are be? ing annually added to the stock of silver on.band, the bulk and weight as well as the force, and effect of the silver act of 1S7.S will be better understood and appreciated. The above figures do not include the sil ver bullion and fractional silver coins held b\ the Treasury. Of the latter there is now on baud 000,000, and of the former, $4,000, 000, the aggregate weight of which is 1,217 tons, thus making the total weight of silver now in the Treasury G,08(i tons.''
