It is not intended as such, sir.
Though to be frank, considering the
object of Jennie's visit, I prefer not, to

frhe would have shown, more sense of

no marriage can bo happy that does

on one thing I an resolved, that I
will not marry from mercenary
" JJobody wants you to marry th?
girl unless you liko, tier!" roared Mr.
Vtlder, his face growing purple with
rage and vexation at nephew's per

to be the main object, I think tha! it
ought to be satisfactory to all pat ties."
A few minutes later Russell passed
,. by the window valise in baud.
He nodded good humoredly to his
uncfe as ho glanced up at the window,
yho ghrtl back at him in speechless

in his chair as he wipe Le perspira

gentle voice of his wife Polly, who had
Just entered the room.
" " flatter enough. I should say.

" What's to bo dono ?"
" Nothing that I can see. If Rus
sell and Jennie had seen each other
before they had heard that you wanted
thera to marry, ten to one but they
would have fallen head and ears in
love each other; but as matters are
now, I don't believe it would bo the
least use. From wliat Ellen writes
me, I should think Jennie to be as
much opposed to it as Kussell. She
says she can't bear to have hU name
mentioned, and that it was as much
as she could do to get lnr consent to
come at all when she heard that llus
sel was at home."
" They are a couple of simpletons,"
Said the old uau, testily. I've half a
mind to make auother will and leave
my property to some charitable institu
tion." In going to l)ightop, whither he
was bound, Russell had to travel part
of the way by stage.
There was only oae passenger fceside
himself, for which ho was not sorry,
the day being very hot and sultry.
The passenger was a lady there
was an air ot unmistakable ladyhood
about her which told him that. He
uoticed particularly the dainty gloved
hands and close fittiug boots.
Her graceful foriu indicated that
she was young and pretty, but he
conld not see her face on account of
the envious veil that hid it.
Rut as soon as she got comfortably
settled in the eoruer to which Russell
assisted her, she threw it back, dis
closing a fair sweet lace, lighted by a
pair of wonderful bright black eyes,
which shot with a swift bewildering
glauce into his that were intently
A sudden starting of the coach
which sent some of the young lady's
parcels from the seat to thu floor, gave
Russell an opportunity of speaking as
he returned theni, of which he was not
slow to take advantage.
From this they foil caily into con
versation, and it was curious to see how
sociable they becauje.
They talked of the beautiful seener
th rough which they passed ; ot the
newest magazine?, some of which
Kussell had with him.
The lady inwardly thought her
companion to be the most entertain
ing and agreeable nun she had ever
met with. And as fur Russell, he
often l-.j.st the (hrerja! of .his discourse
in admiring the red, dimpled lips, and
t!ie peailw tooth th-y disclosed when
she spoke or smiled.
(Jeitaiu il is that his four hours ride
from V to Dightoti were the
shortest ho had ever known iu his life
" Where do you want to be left,
sir?" inquired the coachman as ho
entered the village.
At Mr. Clurles Hunt's Locust
Hill. Do you know where it is V
said Rusell, putting his head out of

Why there's 7her0. I am gaing!
the lady, opening her eyes wildly.
Nelly Mr Hunt's wife is one of my
dearest frieuds ; we used to go to school
"And Charley Hunt is my most par
ticular friend, and one of the finest
fellows in the world."
" How very odd 1"
" Hew very fortunate ?" exclaimed
Russell, with a meaning glance at his
companion which made the rosy cheeks
still more rosy. Might I take the
liberty of inquiring"
Rut just at this moment the stage
stopped in front of the house, on the
portico of which stood Mr. and Mrs.
Hunt enjoying the evening air.
In a moment Russel wa. shaking
hands with the former, while bis com
panion rushed eagerly iuto the arms of
the delighted wife.
M Why, what a happy surprise. Jen.
nie," she said, after spiriting her visit
or off to her room," I had given up all
idea of seeing you this summer."
" And I had no idea of being able
to come until just before I had started.
You see mamma my step mamma,
you knowwas going to uncle wildcr'a,
and she insisted on my going with her,
to see that hatcfull, disagreeable cousin
of mine that they are determined to
marry me to. So when mamma was
busy packing, I just put on my things
and slipped off, leaving a note to tell
where was going. Wasn't that a
good joke on them all ?"
I should think itwns,"said Nellie
with a but oi'mcrrimcnt.far mora than
thu occasion warrautcd. When I
saw who your companion was, I thought
y ou were out on your, wedding tour."
No, indeed; never paw' the man un
til he jot in the stao ac 1 Rut; ro

saw and so agreeable Who is he V
" Oh, I'll introduce you when- you

And with a rougisU shake of her
fluger at her friend, Nelly rau away to
seo about supper. If Jennie did not
look her prettiest, she certainly looked
very lovely as she entered tho supper
room, ker linen suit exchanged for a
fresh soft cntlio, whose simplicity aod
purity wore relieved only by the violet
colored ribbons iu the hair and around
tho throat. -
Russel had also taken great pains
with his toilet, as could be seen by the
spotless linen and carefully arranged
The pause that followed Jennie's
entrance was broken by Mr. Hunt,
who, iu response to a hint from his wife,
Russel, allow me to introduce to you
your cousin Jennie ; Miss Carlton, your
cousin, Russel Wilder."
The embarrassment which followed
the blank astonishment into which
this anounccmcot threw the parties, so
uuexpecteldy made known to each oth
er, was quickly dispelled by the turn
that was given to it by there host and
" I suppose you will want to ' book
youself for the next sUge V said Mr.
Hunt slyly to Russell, who had taken
him into his confidence.
" And you," said the wife, turning
to Jennie. 4 I don't suppose anything
could tempt you to remain, now that
you have been that hateful, disagreea
ble" Nellie," interuptcd Jennie crim
soning as she remembered her words.
Well 1 wtw't then. Rut you
must let me laugh!. Just to think of

tion, and to the same place J"
1 he riugiog laugh that burst from
Nellie's lips was loo contagious to be
resisted even by those at whose ex
pense it was raised, j

geueral good feeling, and a pleasai;ter
tea party never gathered arouud the
We need hardly ay that Russell
did not take the stage the next morn
ing, uor did Jennie seem at all dis
posei to cut short her visit on account
of her cousin's unexpected appearance
Wheu they did go, they went, as
they came, together.
Mr. Wildcr'a astonishment was only
equajed by his delight, on looking out
of the wiudow to see tho two walking
up the path toward the house, ami in
arm, and apparently on the best of
As for Rnsscl and Jennie, they
seemed to regard this unexpected
meeting as an indication of their 'man

the great joy of all.

band over there wanted a divorce. His
wife was pure irreproachable and above
suspicion To s.ecu,ro U object, h
hired a georgeous looking man, told
him to test the power of resistance of
the uususpectiug wife. This "shadow"
was faithful t0 K'3 trust. The women
fell. Then the husband come triumph
antly to tho frout. His suit for a
decree of a divorce was begun. It came
to trial, the testimony of tho shadow
showed that tho wife had been guilty.
It proved more than that, namely, that
she had been guilty with the aforesaid
ahadowf. This, of course would bo
a"siTicicnt ground for a divorce on tho
ground of adultery. Rut no. Let us
hear the defence. They admitted the
guilt of the wife, proved she had been
criminal with no other person, end then
put in that said "shadow" was agent
of her husbandand that every princi
pal is responsible- for the acts of an
ngcut. The court so ; held, and the
wicked husband had ' still a wife in
whose fall he had been instrumental.
This is at once law and common sense.
Okkiin of Ladies Stayes.
Slays were first invented by a brutal
butcher of the thirteenth century as a
punishment for his wife. She was very
louaciou j and finding nothiug cujrcd;
her, ho put a pair, of stays, on her in
order to take away her breath, and so
prevent, as ho thoiih.t, her talking.
This cruel punishment was infljeted by
other husbands, at last there was scarce
ly a wife in all Loudon who was not
condemned to wcarstavs. Tho punish

ladies in their own defence made a
fashion of it, and so it has has contin
ued to tho present day. Pioneer.
The Crisis in Prussia.
The present situation ef the Prus
sian Government is by no means an
enviable one. It has been iu tribu
lation ever since 18CG. The popula
tion of the annexed provinces of Han
over and the electorate of If ese feels iu
no mood to tarn Prussian- patriotic ;
in many parts of the Empire particu
larism is still on the rampant ; the
reannexed imperial provinces ot Alsace
and Lorraine cause much anxiety; the
the relgious commotion which the
Government has wantonly and unnec
cssarilly provoked, are of a more
serious character than was anticipated ;
and now, to crown all, we have
between the Government
aristocratic party, bv reason
of the proposed change in tha govern
ment of the districts. From the latest
cable dispatches it is to be
infered that the Miuistry blenches
at ttatuQiry course against tho
Junkers. It is true the Crown
punish the IJppex House
creating a number oi uew 1'eers ;
it cannot ueate a majority on its
in that body, and it seems to be un
willing to risk a thorough reorgani
zation of the latter. Now there is
talk of trimming the bill for the country
Government as to make it acceptable
to the (Jhambcr descend of Peers. To
to half-way measures would be the
most foolish thing that Rismarck could
do. The moment he exhibited weakness
and compliance toward the aristocratic
gentlemen of rank, he will without
gaining their coufideoee, forfeit their
respect along with his popularity
among the people, who had conceived
a predjudiee again t the House of
T,ords, aud would prefer to see it done
awy with. Persons not of rank can
not bo blamfcd for this aversion,
because the fundamental law of the
House of Lords embodies a recogni
tion, on the part of the State, of the
old feudal system, of the perogatives
of the nobility, and of class distinc
tions. The least crouching 011 the
rart of the Government before this
House is viewed with great displeasure
among the people. To be satisfactory
to the nobility, the bill for the country
government will have to be so modified
as to bear a feudal character. Rut iu
that ease it would almost be better to
leave matters as they are, instead of
promising the people bread and giyin
them a stone.
The government of the districts or
' circles," as it is exercised now, U
based upon the pre-eminence of the
possessor of a manorial estate over all
the other classes of the tax paying pop
ulation. Every owner of a manor has
what is called a iril stiimie in the diet
of the circle an individual vote which
outwelghts the collective vote of entire
villages. As a general thing the coun
try communes and cities are, as against
tho manorial nobles, in a hopeless mi
nority in the circle diets even when the
voting is upon extra levies of taxes on
the three classes, the nobles, burghers
aud peasants. Hitherto in the country
districts of the old Prussian provinces,
the police also have cither been
entirely in the hands or at least under
tho control of tho kuighta of the man
ors. The object of the new country
movement was to cstablsb a more
democratic and equal representation in
the circle diets of all taxpayers without
distinction of rank, and to place the
police under the representation of J thej
entire population . The
situation in whioh tho Government ha
been put by the obstinacy of tho
junktr party ia a very critical one, and
it will bo interesting to a spectator at
a distance to watch how it will extri
cate itself from the difficulty.
True and Falkb Modesty.
Nothing is moro amiable than true
modesty, aud uothing moro contempt,
tblo than that which is false the one
guards virtue, the other betrays it.
True modesty is ashamed to do anything
that is repugnant to right reason j ffalse
modesty in ashamed to do anything that
is opposite to tho humor of those with
whom the party couvcrses. True modesty
avoids everything tbt is criminal;
falso modesty everything that is un
fashionable ; the latter is only a general
undetermined iustinct limited aud cir
cunwefibod; by the rules of prudence.
The total yield of the new hop crojJ
