Tbe old mere-stone had been lost track of, and Mr. - - juA HP*ABW.T,»»8Wv»0,O*<^i» JilPu. « Ob, mother!” exclaimed Mary Wylie, tones of dismay, “ tbo cream is all sour 1” And her handsome face darkened with positive annoyance. It was really too vexatious, for she had invited a score or more of gay young lriends lor that even ing, to meet her newly arrived consin Kitty, aDd of course she ought to have ice cream. The Wylies were rather famous for their delicious ice-cream, which they always made themselves for company, but the thermometer at ninety-eight and a thunder-storm had curdled all the milk in the dairy. “ ybe cake, is all ready,” said Maty, sit ting down inner perplexity. “Bnt what else are we to have. Coffee' is too hot, and lemonade is too much like a fair. Kitty, can’t yon think ot .-ome little light thing, easy to make, to take the place of ice-cream f” Thus appealed to, Kitty upraised her head from “Daniel Deronda,” and said, thoughtfully, “Po you like float f” “What is a float t” “ It takes eggs; mamma makes it often for us at home, evenings. She beats the whites of eggs up like a great snowy moun tain, and puts in sugar, and then she beats strawberries, or raspberries, or jelly, to make it a pretty color and flavor it. We eat in saucers like ice-cream.” “ It sounds good,” said Mary, with a lit tle revival of hope, “ and we have oceans of eggs. Hut strawberries are all gone— there are raspberries, to be sure, down in the lots. But I burn so ’■11 go in the sun, and the servants are busy—no, I’m afraid we can’t make it.” “ I’ll pick the berries!” said Kitty, jumping up; “I’d like nothing better than stroll in the lot*, and I’m so brown al ready the sun won’t hurt me.” “ But you’ll be so tired,” remonstrated Mary, looking admiringly at the merry brunetto face, and J want yoi) to look your very prettiest to-night, so that our young men may lose their hearts.” “ I thiuk I would rather have raspber ries than hearts,” replied Kitty, saucily, and she put on her hat and took a pail, and, with a few words of direction, went down the garden and through a gate into the back lot. It was a burning July day, but Kitty was child of the sun, and* she liked it. She had not been iu the country for a long time before, and she fairly reveled in the feeling of the grass under her feet, the whirr of the grasshoppers, and the little escor. ofbmwn butterflies that fluttered all the tjme just ahead of her. Here are the raspberries J” she said to herself as she came to the low stone wall; not very many of them either—I suppose they picked a good many for supper last uigtat. But I’ll glean as I go.” So she gleaned as she went, but the ber ries were scarce, and as the old wall was a tumble-down condition, and there seemed to be tporp herrjes }u the next lot, she climbed over and wandered on, meet ing with better success. A lane ran by the lot she was now in, and a black-eyed young lady walking through it stared cu T riously at Kitty as she passed. “ I believe I like birds better than I do people,” was Kitty’s mental comment x>n this; “ yopr dear little robins singing s over in those apple trees, \ mean to go and watch your housekeeping, and rest a little while, lor my pail is almost full.” Tho apple trees were in a corner of the lot, and when Kitty reached them she found a bubbling spring there, and rocks covered with lovely iicheDS. “ Uucle Jtobert pas good taste,” she said, “ to keep such a charming little nook here.” And she threw herself down in tho shadow of one quite tall rock, and fanned herself with her hat. she was iu a mood to thoroughly enjoy everything, and it seemed toiler sbe’bad neyer seen the sky beautiiul. before, nor such beautiful clouds. “ I’d like to marry a farmer!” she said, impulsively aloud: and to her utter dismay pleasant, manly voice fcoin the other side of the rock responded: “Would youl That’s quite a rare choice, nowadays I” Kitty sprang up and started to run, when, of all calamities, in her haste she upset per ppjl of raspberrjes, and away they foiled Jn evpry direction. .With burning pheeks she began to pick them up, lor it would never do tq disappoint Mary apout tbe float, and she threw an in dignant glanpe at tbe young man, who now came round in full view, and said he begged her pardon, he knew he ought not to have spoken, but it really seemed im polite not to apswer i “ Your politeness haa spilled my ber ries, you see!” she replied, rather sharply. “Allow me,” he exclaimed, instantly, and grasping tho pail, he began to pick up the berries with her. They worked together in perfect silence for a few minutes, hunting the berries among the grass, and down In the soft, green moss. §ne great black raspberry bad caught iu d spider’s web -, they each reached for it in the same second, their bands tpucbpd, their eyes met, and tfle young man smiled: and, so, |n spite of her- selt, did Kitty. “ Do forgive me,” he said; “ you shall not be one berry the loser by it l” and he rescued two on the brink of the spring. “I will,” answered Kitty; “but you must never tell the farmers!” Alley that, of course, it absurd to be formal, and,’ like two happy young cfed- tures in the heyday of youth, they made s frolic ot the whole thmg, and laughed over eyery berry. Kitty told him what she picked them for, abfl for whom, and he said he was well acquainted with Mias Wyfle. I‘ Bprhpps, then, you will he there to: night,” she remarked, hoping in her heart he would. “ I have not been invited,” he answered soberly. «; “ Oh, well,” said Kitty, merrily, “ then I’ll invito you, for Mary made the compa ny for me, and J heard her say thpre were two or three pore she wanted to adk, but hadn’t been able to see them. Won’t yon cornel* , - V The young man hesitated | he felt as if he were sailing under false colors. The troth was, he and the Wylies were not on good terms, though they had formerly been friends. Mat their lands adjoined, Wylie, surveying one day after his own fasbio'n, found, or fancied he found, that he bad a 'right to tbe knoll. This claim youug Hugh Greystone bad reiused to recognize. His lather,-who had recent ly died, had always held possession of the knoll, and greatly prized it-, and Hugh saw do reason why he should give up his title. Mr. Wylie, who was hot and hasty, had begun legal measures, and Hugh, indig nant, and compelled to take up the defen sive, had naturally ceased visiting at the Wylie*mausion. “Of course you needn’t*come if you don’t want to!” said Kitty, piqued at his hesitation. “I do want to come,” Jie answered earnestly, “ and will, tf f'oan possibly ar range it so.” '* * ■ “I’ll expect you,”said Kitty, lightly and then remembering that her cousin must be wondering at her long absence, she lifted the. pail of berries aud would have said good morning,” but Hugh stepped in stantly to her side, and taking the pail, went with her as far as the piece of dilap idated wall where she had first crossed over. Then he watched her until she dis appeared from sight in the Wylie garden. When he turned back his brow was knit but his lips were smiling. The merry lit? tie brunette tace bad aroused bis interest as no other lace had ever done. Hugh Greystone had more romance and generos- ity in tbe depth oi his soul than any one dreamed, and was quite capable ot doiug quixotic deed once in a while, it it harm ed no one but himselt. He determined to go to Mary Wylie’s party, and to pay a roy al price for the privilege. “ Here are your raspberries!” exclaimed Kitty, gayly, as she entered the house; “aud now 1 5 11 sit right flowu and pick them over.” “ You dear littlesoul 1” Baid Mary, with fervor, “you are such a comfort. But I am afraid you are tired out, your cheeks are so flushed!” “ Oh, | ran up the path,” said Ifitty, bending over the berries. She had fully meant to recouut all her adventure for Mary’s entertainmeut, but, after all, so un accountable is a girl, she said not one word about it. Together they prepared the float, beat ing tbo eggs up high and white aud light, and gradually adding the sugar and ber ries, till they had a great dish heaped up like a massy mountain with the delicacy, which was in tint an exquisite pale purple. It was set aside with the cake, and then the girls flew to adorn themselves. Evening came and the guests gathered. It was a house where every *one liked to visit, and Mary Wylie was a popular girl. Her cousin, the stranger, looking very piquant and prptty jQ' fllapk grenadine, with a few “ ploth ot gold” roses, made quite a sensation, and she herself enjoyed the evening, the more, perhaps, because a certain secret excitement that set her heart bounding every time a new comer entered the door, and her first thought was. “ Is it he T” But fjmw passed, apfl hP pbwo not. There had been danejng, and every oue was warm and tired. Uefrephments wore always servpd parly at the Wylies’ in obe dience to good old fashioned notions on the part ot the head ot tho house. So presently the cake \va9 passed about, and the company partook, witfl tflo pleasant anticipation that ice : creacu was' coming next to make them cool aud comfortable. It was such a sultry July evening that they must be pardoned. When tbe high piled purple dish was brought in, it was univer sally noticed, lor human nature does feel interested iu what it is about to put $t a party. “ 1 never saw lavender ice cream be fore,” whispered one to his neighbor, and Mary Wylie heard it. She dipped it out into saucers, and, with the eleptric pyinpatpy o| a hostess felt that the first taste was followed by disappoint ment. The fact was the float was a de licious thing, but, for tho. first instant it did fall flat In mouths that were made up for icecream. “ It ! 8 raspberry float,” said Kitty, inno cently, in reply to a neighbor’s question ; I picked all the berries for it myself.” “ Yes,” said a sharp-eyed young lady, whom Kitty had already recognized as the one in the lane, “ I saw you rifling the Greystone bushes.” “ Why, Kitty 1” exclaimed Mary Wylie, with deepening color], “ you did not go out ot your own lot, did you f” “ f’m afraid I did,” said Kitty, becoming embarrassed at the mischievous and moaning glances that met her on all sides, aud feeling that, tor some reason, her cousin was annoyed. But now some one passed bis saucer for a little more of the float, and one alter another began to praise it,' till at last Mary’s equauiwity returned. Meanwhile, Mr. Wylie, who had been sit ting comfortably all the evening out in tbo honeysuckle scented piazza, had compapy 4if his own. It was 4 u ob ftreystondj who coming up the path and finding him there, had stopped for a talk. “ Mr. Wylie,” ho said, “ I’ve come to say that I have changed my injqd qflouf our lawsuit. 'I’he well is' out of repair, the merestouc is lost, aud it you were sure about your survey, 1 can’t say but there may have been a mistake. In tact, I con cede the knoll.” That’s right, Hugh, my boy!’’ exclaim ed Mr. Wylie, his stiff dignity melting into bo discovered a few inches under ground, the long lost merestone. “ Now we can set things right,” he ex claimed, exultantly. But bis face tell as he went on surveying, for by the aid ot the stone he rectified his survey and was confounded to fiud that the old wall had been right all the time, and the knoll was none of his. He lookel up and saw Hugh Greystone crossing the field. “ Hugh !” ho called*out in his hasty way, “ come here 1 I've been an old tool and you’ve been a gentleman. The knoll is yours, sure enough.” “ Oh, I’ve made you a present of it,” said Hugh, rather grandly. “ But if you don’t want to keep it, you can give it to my wile.” “ Your wife!” asked Mr. Wylie,; amazed “ Y43s,” replied Hugh, with a look of hap py pride, “ Kitty has just promised to be mine for life.” So ithe little, onmmer episode reached its sweet conclusion, and by the time tbe brown autumn leaves were fluttering over the fields instead of the butterflies, Kitty became a landed proprietor, and was mistress of the knoll.—Ehrich's Fashion Quarterly.

At her side he stayed, and when Mary smilingly brought him some cake and some float, he pronounced tho latter perfection, and ate it in a state of beatitude. - “ Why didn’t- you tell me I tres, passing^ this morning r * “J had been waiting (or you toq Jong,” fle said, half jesting, half earnest, §15 weeks later Mr. Wylie went out one pleasant morning to repeat his survey, and to lay the foundation of bis-wall anew. His measurements did not come exactly as he expected, and he was growing puz- iflfld, when suddenly, in driving a stake, How His Trousers Got Shortened. A certain gentleman purchased a pair of pants a few days ago, which upon be ing tried on at borne, he found to be too long. That night be remarked to his wife that he wished her to take off about an inch from each leg, which would make thorn the desired length. Being fond ot teasing her husband, she told him that she shouldn’t do anything of the kind, and he retired without having obtained a promise from her that she would attend to the matter. Soon alter he had left for his room, how ever, she, as a matter of course, clip ped off the superfluous inch, as she had been asfled to do. Tho family is composed of six female members, and each one of the five who were in adjoining rooms, heard the dispute between mau and wite, and after the latter had taken oil the required inch aud retired, not knowing wh^t her daughter-in-law had done, cautiously slipped into the 100m and cut off another inch. In this way did each of tbo five ladies, unknown to tho other, and all with the praiseworthy object of preventing any misunderstanding 'between the couple, clip an inch from the legs of the gentle man’s trousers. The following morning, all unconscious of what had taken pip,00 during the night, he rolled up his pants In a piece ot paper, and took thorn to the tailor to be short ened to the desired length. Upon a hasty glance the latter ventured the opinion that they were already short; buttfle owner insisted that t^ey vy pp jujlyafl jnph too long. Tfle taflor flafl oa mope to say and our frjend retired, Qn the following Saturday he called for the pants and took them home, and was supremely disgusted to find that the, legs reached only a trifle below the knee.

He was a man of great capability, fascination and power, byt ho had a passion for brandy which' qqthing could control, utten iu fljs walks a friend retaonkt&ted with him, but in vain, and a& often in turn would he urge his friend to take a social glass with him, in vain. On one occasion the latter agreed tq ytai^ to him, a«d as fh e Y walked yp po the bar together, tye bar-keeper said; We lived in a city in Ohio, my brother and I, and with us our aged parents. Two merrier young people never lived. We were twins, and so much alike in our ways and manners, that it would bave taken a smart person to tell us apart; we look ed and talked alike; we had light brown hair, and dark blue eyes; we were just twenty-two, and were always up to some trick, playing pranks on eaoh other, and sometimes on our intimate friends. I had two very intimate gentlemen friends, George Caston and Sam. Summers. I had known them a long time and liked them very much, but lately, in some way, I had taken a dislike to Sam. Summers, and wanted to get rid of him. He had not offended me personally, and I did not know how to go about it. So ’I determirf- ed to play a trick on him. i told brother Tom about it, and he promised his assist ance. On Wednesday evening I had prom ised to go to a concert with George Caston; I knew that Sam. wanted to take me, and I expected him at my house that evening also. I knew that George would come at seven o’clock. At six I took Tom to my room and dressed him iu one of my evening dresses, put 01 a blonde wig which I had procured for the purpose, dressed his hair in the latest style, with a blue ribbon bow on the side. The loug dress hid his big feet, and I squeezed his bands into No. ? kid gloves. We both laughed until our sides ached at this mean trick that we were about to play ou a poor unsuspect ing young man. We got over our fit of laughing just iu time, for the door hell rang and the ser vant brought up his card. “ Tell Mr. Summers that 1 will be down in a few minutes,” I replied, “ and be sure and shut the door that leads into the back parlor.” After q (ew minutes, I sent Tom do wn to the parlor, and I slipped down the back way into the back parlor, and stood by the door that led into the iront parlor, It was-growing dark, and Iiuat could see in the room. He was sitting on a sofa near the door) 1 could seo him distinctly, as there was a window open to the right ot him. I had just gotten to my p<aee by the door, when my brother entered the par lor. ' It was the most ridiculous sight I ever saw. Mr. Summers sprang up to meet Miss Colton, (as he thought.) “ Good eveuing, Miss Colton,” he said, in his pleaaptoat tone, aooompanied by hjs most polite bow, “ Good evening, Mr. Summers,” answer ed Miss Colton, “ I am glad to see you out again. 1 heard that you had been sick.” “ Thank you, Miss Kate,” said the well pleased Sam, “ I bave been indisposed lor a feto days past, but I am UU right again, I am happy to Bay..” go perfect was the imitation ot my tone and manner, that I was astonished. I did not know that my brother could act so well. Gut there he was seated l>y the side ot that stupid Sam, (who thought it was me,) talking away for dear life. What a sight it was. I had to stuff my handkerchief' in my mouth to keep from aughing, J heard him ask “ Miss Kate” if she would go to the concert with him; of course, “ Miss Kate” said yes. I saw her rise to leave the room, and at the same time riug tor ljghfcl. ( gqt up from my seat at the door, and fairly flew up stairs to my room; there I met Tom I thought that we would both go into hysterics. We laughed for fully ten minutes without stopping, except to catch our breath, We had to stop then, from sheer exhaustion. Aud as Tom would repeat some little silly nothings that Sam. had said to him, we would laugh again, till the room rang. But I knew that this idling would never do. Tom must leave before George Gaston came, or the fun would all be spoiled, put ou his bat aud wraps and started him dowu stairs again with a proper excuse for keeping Mr. Summers waiting ao long. It just lacked ten minutes of seven o’clock as they drjvo away from tbe door. After another good laugh at Sam’s stu pidity, I descended to the parlor to wait for Mr, Caston. He oame in a few min utes and we soon left for the concert. We were driving leisurely along the avenue, when a buggy passed us like a flash, tho horse going at the top ot his speed- I did not know, of course, wha it was. We arrived in time to get a good seat, and ( looked all around to see where Sam. and “Miss Kate" were. But they were not to be seen anywhere. I could not imagine what it meant. I asked Mr. Caston if he knew where Mr. Summers was t “ ^q/‘ he said he had not him for several days. We lelt as soou as the concert was over. When we reached home, Tom was there he8melled very strongly of arnica. Mr Caston left «t' twelve o'clock, and then fotp told me ail that had happened since Seven o'clock, They drove along very quietly for a while, when Mr. Summers began to he very sentimental. In other words he simply made an offer of marriage to my brother, 'ftta v?ga toq much for Tom. His apt up fe-lings could stand no more, he at began to laugh loud and uproariously. Mr summers was furious:; he knew, from.the .changed tone of vetoe^-that, it was Tom,, .Popr SUmu he cursed and swore,! ^l.yflh PAly ^augbed. He stopped ^*, buggy in the middle of the road, and po- litely (f) asked Tmn to leave, and assisted “ What are you laughing at, Kate I” “ I bave only to say “ Sam Summdrs ” It is like fire set to tow, then; be burst out in as wild a laugh as if it was the first time he had heard it. It was a mean joke, certain. Practical jokes are nieab,.anyway. THIS SHEAR'S JORES- Clipped from the Papers of the Old andT New World. A wrestling match diflers somewhat from a political convention.
