'This was the answer to my suit.

under the same roof since she was a

“Devotion ! You snub me quite ys

*,Oii, I don’t ; pray describe your

“Handsome, with black whiskers
and the manners of a traveler. A man
who has not lived all his life in a mis
erable village, but has seen the world
and profited thereby. One who has
mixed in distinguished society, and
learned refinement of dress and man
ners ; and who can talk something
besides books with a lady.”
“Ah ! well, il you won’t have me,
you won’t, so there’s an end of it.”
I got up from t'ie arbor seat when?
we had been sitting and strolled toward
the house. I saw her blue eyes open
with amazement at my coolness. I
did not enact despaff- lor her benefit,
but laid my plans for edification.
Two days later I had left home and
gone to the city on a visit. Nina gave
me a merry farewell, and did not seem
at all heart-broken at the prospect of a
separation. If she fell any emotion,
she was soon soothed, as the following
letter, directed to my address* convinc
ed me :
“Dear Marston —My hero has ar
rived—such lovely black whiskers ;
not at ail like your smooth face, cousin;
such curls, not auburn ones like yours;
black eyebrows and lashes—yours are
yellow. He ims been everywhere, has
| seen everything, speaks the foreign
language, and has tire polished man"
ners. lie brought a letter of introduc
tion to Will, so, of course, he is here
quite often, and seems very well
pleased with a certain cousin of yours.”
And so on. the letter was filled up
with home gossip, i read it at the
little inn of my native village, where
, all my letters re-directed to Mr. Alonzo
Aourinev, followed me. The blaolt
whiskers lay on the table beside me,
the wig hung from the brnkingglass,
while the dyed eyebrows and lashes
still adorned my face. My fine broad
cloth suit, cut in the latest city style,
my patent leather boots, kid gloves,
and dandy cane lay on a chair, while I
lounged iit dressing gown and slippers,
before the window, scanning my cous
in’s letters. As I was engaged to drive
her out in an hour, l began my elabor
ate toilet. Every curl was in position,
every fold correct, as 1 rang the bell to
my uncle’s house, to which my telluw
conspirator Will, had introduced me.
No suspicion of my identity crossed my
aunt’s mind as she gave me a polite
welcome, and Nina's blinded eyes saw
only Mr. Courtney the traveled dandy.
• 1 trust I see the rose of Glendale in
full health,” I said, with a bow. “Ah !
those fair hands were destined for
daintier tasks than this!” and I de
prived her of her sewing. “The soft
air woos us. Will you drive with
With a bewitching little hat, and
every curl in glossy beauty, she was
soon ready for our excursion. I can
not tell all trie flattery I poured into
her ears, hall disgusted at her blushes,
and half amused at her innocent pleas
ure in my exaggerated gallantry. It
was the first time I had been alone
with her in my disguise, and took
occasion to delicately hint at my entire
devotion to her charms, and grinding
01 v teeth at Iter coquetish acceptance
of the same.
I saw her every day for a month,
pressing my suit on all occasions, ur.u
tilling her ears with Crawling affec
tations and flat descriptions of Italy
and France, with broad comparisions
of the daughters of Europe and America.
At last I proposed. To my amaze
ment she refused me flat; to my de
light she informed me trial mv cousin
was a dressed up idiot. Ido no. mean
’ that li.aee were her exact term?, out
her warm defense of lo r cousin, alter
my sneering hints of jealousy, was
fully equivalent t>> such a declaration.

! her cool ease and matter ofeourse af
fection, but would only laugh at mv
love, and compare me slightly to her
recent admirer, and had the audacity to
hint that her heart walked out al the
door at Ids departure. '
I was half inclined to quit the field;
but 1 loved the gipsey hartiiy, and
could not give her up. Luckily. I had
a sun-stroke. Now, a sun.stroke is
not generally a fortunate event; but for
me it opened a way to my present
happiness. 1 was in the garden bn«v
about some fruit which was being
gathered, win n all the face of nature

“Marston! Marston! only speak to
me! It is Nina. * Oil ! Marston, do

Hot tears fell fast on my face. I had
been carried into the house, and it was'
the second hour of my stupor when the
words struck my ear muffled and dim.
But deliciously sweet the ooor voice
sounded in my agony. Then Will
Feel liis pulse, now, Nina. IFe is

M e were alone. I could not move,
but I could feel her kisses rained on

unliimlness, and her low prayers
prayers whispered for my safety. At
last I opened my eyes.

Such is Life —This anecdote, which
Every Saturday translates from Die
Garteulaube, illustrates the proverb
that no man is a prophet in his own
it was a lovely spring l morning in the
year 1843, when a little bridal party
entered the office of the maisc of a
parish in the environs of Paris, in order
to subscribe there the marriage con
tract of the young couple. Small,
however, as the part} was, it was not
the less select The bridegroom was a
talented young artist, who now-a-davs
enjoys a signal reputation, and his
marriage witnesses were named Ingres
and Patti Delaroche, two masters oi the
French school of art. The pretty
bride had chosen as her two witnesses
two friends of her deceased father, bv
name Victor Hugo and Alexandre
Dumas. After the official had written
down with the utmost particularity,
j the surnames, Christian names and
! station in life of the bridal pair, he
passed to the witnesses, and turi ed
first to Victor lingo wilh the question
as to bis name.
“Hugo?” he repeated, in doubt.
“How is that written ? Js there at at
the end ?”
The author dictated the name tetter
lor letter. Then with dig
nity the man of authority proceeded
with the second question
“What trade do you follow?”
“None at all,” rejoined Victor lingo,
“What! no trade at all ? But at any
rate you can write so that you can sub
scribe your name here ?”
To this ffllgO assented with great
equanimity, and then came the other
witnesses. When Ingres and Delaroche
answer' and that they were “painters,”
the functionary eyed them over his
spectacles with a very supercilious air,
“House or sign painters ?”
The merriment of the whole party
irritated him greatly, and lie growled
out something about “disrespectful be
havior,” while Ingres answered him —
“Write down simply “painters.”
Alexandre Dumas, however, came on
with flying colors, for he announced
that he was a “gentlemen,” (rentier,)
which raised him far above bis com
panions in the estimation of the official*
who front that time forth vouchsafed to
address and pay attention to him alone.
These mem were then in the zenith of
their fame, and yet, well known and
honored as they were throughout the
civilized world, within a stone’s throw
of the gates of Paris their names were
unrecognized and unrespected.
