A Story ot'Counterparts.
A quiet uneventful life was mine un
til t left the anelter of my Faiher.s roof
in Gotham, and accepted the desk of a
book-keeper in the w holesale clothiujf
establishment, of Shears and Pltscoit.
in the busy little city of Weston.
But there, one afternoon, in October,
just in the midst oi the Indian summer,
i invited Lillie Prescott with whom, 1
wa« nearly in love, to walk with me.
Her little Land in its delicate prime'
rose-eolnred gloves rested on my arm,
her black eyes were* lifted to my face.
I teit paiticularly tender and confiden
tial, and at pence with all the world.
Vv e were speaking of the gurgeousness
ot the distant lulls, clothed, as they
were, in their maniies of crimson foli
age, when I was brought to a stop by
hearing my name pronounced in a tone
that w'as neither sweet nor agreeable.
“ Mr. Smith, i’ii jest trouble you to
stop a minhe.”
I looked up. A woman of fifty, or
thereabout, effectually blocked up the
sidewalk before u»! indeed her propor
tions weie colossal. It ever 1 have seen
the personification of indignation 1 saw
it in her expressive countenance.
“Madam !” 1 exclaimed, retreating a
little from the battery of flashing giay
eves which she brought to bear on tne.
“You needn’t madam me !” cried she,
waxing tedder. “1 jest trouble you to
setlie mis little bill !” And she thrust
an ominous piece of paper before my
eyes, which read, substantially,
Kicliard Smith to Mrs. Juliana Biggins,
For six months board - - §96 00
For “ washing - - 12,00
I returned the bill to her.
“I oue you net ling ma lam. I never
saw you before in my life.”
“You needn’t lie to nte !” cried she,
setting her arms akimbo. “I hat ill kept
a genteel boarding house fifteen years
for nothing, sir! You’ll either fork
over on tf.e spot or I’ll take the law !”
“Take it,” remarked I; “vou’re
welcome to it.”
“Y r ou think to sarse me, young man !
Remember w hat you promised ! I’ll
have you took up for it as sure as my
name’s Biggins. I’ll lurn you belter
than to deceive a trusting u'idder wo
man in th-ct way ! You dtsatelul hypo
“Madair, you install me 1 I—”
“Oil ! it looks well for you to stand
on your dignity ! Mighty lofty all at
once! * You’ve forgotten the cream
flapjacks f used to make for you, and
the kisses you used to give me every
evening after the rest of ’em iiad gone
to bed ! You’ve forgot that you sol
emnly promised that you’d marry me
last f’uesdav morning! You’ve forgot
that have you?”
“Yes —) es—l never! no!” stain"
inered I. dropping Miss Lillie’s arm in
“Do you dare deny it?” cried she,
in a rage.
“Yes, forever, and a day after*
wards !” I roared mu. “D > you think
I would marry an old termagant like
von? I’d sooner wed my grandmoth
1 saw the fire flash up in her eyes.—
The widow was waxing dangerous.
I dodged the reticule she aimed at my
head, and tell backward as she charged
upon me with a half mourning parasol,
M*as Lillie turned and fled. 1 thought
discretion the better part of valor, so I
leaped over a garden fence near at hand
and was immediately attacked by a
large watch dog that sprung out of a
kennel near by. I seized a dahlia pole,
and hurling it at the beligerent. made
good my escape by fording a duck
pond, and readied the next street, from
which I hurried home at the best pace
1 could command.
1 was resolved that I would r.ot re*
main in Weston a day longer. Evi
dently there \ .as in the city some other
Richard Smith, for whose notorious seif
1 was mistaken.
I penned a hasty note to my employ
ee—giving my reasons for leaving
them, packed my trunks, paid my
board, and marking my baggage, “k\l
Smith,” New Hampton,” l entered
the cars for the locality specified on
In selecting New Hampton as my
destination, I had no definite purpose
in view ; but in a place of its size I had
no doubts of being able to secure souip
lucrative situation, and the office of
“Bocts” was better, il I could be left
unmolested, than the situation of Pres
ident, if 1 must lose my identity, and
be attacked with viragos in the streets.
It was near noon of the next day
when the train whirled up to the depot
at New Hampton. I alighted and was
hastening down the platform to look
after mv baggage, when I saw a lady
in a brown silk walking dress, earnest
ly regarding me. As she caught my
eye she threw up her veil and sprang
towards me. As the veil swept back
it revealed the loveliest face that I had
ever looked upon. 1 had never even
dreamed of anything half so beautiful.
In involuntary admiration I stood still.
She threw herself into my arms—her
arms fell around my neck —her velvet
cheek touched mine—and such a kiss
as she planted full on my lips! My
face was in a blaze. I felt as if I hail
been stewed in honey, with lavender
She repeated the kiss—the munifi*
cent iittie nnge!—exclaiming,
••Dear, dear Richard !” “How de
ligtned l am that you have come at
I was dumb. My mouth was sealed
up the sweetness of her kisses I
dared not speak lest I should dissolve
■‘We have been expecting you for
four days! Only think what a pniioil
of suspense,” went on the soft voice of
tl e lady as, c a-ping my hand, she
drew me unresist.ugly to a phaeton in
waiting, “There, make yourself easy.
I’m going »o drive! Isn’t it pleasant
to he waited on, Richard ?”
The arch brown ey* s sought mine,
a9, drawing up the fur lined robes my
companion shook the rein over the
white horses and we whirled ranidlv
“Papn is so anxious to see you once
more Richard ! but his rheumatism is
worse to'day and lie cannot drive
down. William is on an errand for
the bride. But I would come; I want
ed so inu(*h to be the first one to greet
you dear Richard ! Allice is so beauti
fully, and so deeplv, beautifully happy.
Richard you ought to be the most
happy man alive I”
“I believe I am.” exclaimed TANARUS, os
reaching up her little face, the little en
chantress favored me w itli another kiss,
which at this time, I repaid with com
pound interest, anil then blushed boil
ing lint to think of it. |
Ai tfiis moment the, pheeton stopped
at the door of a fine old mansion on an
ai i.-t icr itic sheet and mechanically I
a'ighted and lifted out my companion.
The fiail door was flung open. The
clasping hand of the young lady drew
me within the vestibule—her musical
voice called softly ai the dour of a bou
“Allice ! Richard hrs come !”
Instantly the door flew oy n, and a
dark haired, beautiful woman, came.
She gazed at me with mingling fervor
and shyness absolutely bewildering.
Verily, I was a favored individual!
An elderly gentleman, supporting
himself by a cane, now came forward
and soluted ine, calling me his “dear
son,” and cutting siiort every thing J
attempted to say by his joyful volubil
The folding doors separating the
sitting room and parlors were thrown
open. 1 heard the rustle of soks; and
waiting in the alcoved arch of an east
window, I saw a clergyman in gown
The elderly gentleman took the band
of the dark haired Alice and placed it
“Take her,” he said with emotion,
“and may God prosper you. We will
then have the most important thing
first and the dinner afterwards. The
guests are already getting impatient.”
1 glanced at Alice's dress. It was
bridal white ; and her beautiful hair
was crowned with a wreath of omige
The sight gave me a tremor. I felt
weak and faint. My pallor must have
alarmed Alice; lor she clutched my
arm wildly and looked into my face
with painful anxiety.
“W hat is it, Richard ? Are you ill?
Merciful heaven ! Helen look at him?
He is ill !”
“It’s nothing—nothing!” I gasped.
“Only I cannot —cannot marry you !
“Oh ?” cried Alice, in horrified dis
may ; and seeing she was ahofft to fall,
1 flu eg my arm around her for support.
At this moment the hall door open
ed, and, turning at the sound, 1 saw
with mine own eyes my second seif
enter the room—my exact counterpart
—Richard 6m th, No. 2.
His fierce eyes took in the scene at
one glance. He rushed toward me
with a wild ejaculation, and tearing the
half'iainiiug Alice from my arms, fits
planted his grasp on my throat. 1 out
my hand on the same locality of his
“What are you doing.?” lie thunder
ed in my ear.
“Wuat arc you doing ?” I thundered
‘ Your life shall pay the forfeit !” he
exclaimed, with mad violence. “The
man who dared to win Alice Hereford’s
love shall die !”
“Gentlemen,” interrupted the sweet
voice of her whom they had called
Helen, “be patient; there is some!
mistake. \\ liicli of vou is named
“1 am !” replied I.
“I am !” replied my counterpart.
“But which of you is Richard Smith
—son of Archibald Smith?”
“1 am !” said my second self.
“And lam not!” said 1; ‘my father
was named Robert.’
Helen looked at me a moment, half
in doubt, evidently, how to treat me
after w hat had occurred. Finally she
held out her hand.
“I beg y.»ur pardon, Mr. Smith; It
was all a careless mistake of my own.
Can you forgive me?”
I thought of the kisses she had given
me, and w islied the same mistake might
be made over again, though I was wise
enough not to make known my y/ish.
“Let me explain,” *he ccmunued,
frankly. “We were expecting my
brother Richard home from Ui« £«uth,
where he ims been some four or fir®
months past; am! were quite sure he
would arrive o i the tr; i t which brought
you; he his been a, me years engaged
to Miss Hereford, and the marriage
ceremony was to ttke place immedN
iitely after his arrival, i went down
to the depot to welcome him, and. be
cause of the similitude in your respec«
live personal appearance, I mistook a
strange: for my brother. That is all.
llrother Richard, Mr. Smith is entirely
blameless of any wrong. We gave
him no time for explanation. Let me
precen: vou to each other ass iends.”
My counterpart shook hands with me
and begged my pardon for dislocating
tny neck-tie. I granted it and begged
his pardon f.-r committing a depredation
on bis neck tie.
And then at a sign from the elderly
gentleman, we walked into the draw*-
ing-rooin, where in a brief space of
time my counterpart was made th®
husband of his blushing Alice.
The acquaintance so singularly begun
with the Smith family soon ripened into
friendship, and became one of the most
precious of life’s blessings to ine.
Heicn Smith had kissed me and she
could not forget it. Ii a man can get *
woman to think of bun—it hardly mat
ters in what way—he has a claim oil
her; and so it was in my case. I
believe that I never met Helen but »h®
blushed at the memory that stole over
Three months after our first meeting,
she kissed me again and called me -‘dear
Richard.” And this lime she was well
aware that she was not addressing her
Is it a fortunate or unfortunate, thing
to have a counterpart? When I think
of the boarding house keeper, I • »y ‘no;*
but when 1 look at Helen and recall the
circumstances of our introdurtiou, I am
accustomed to answer “yes.”
If Wc Knew.
If we knew the carca and cro::*rs
Cr wded round our neighbor’s way
If we knew the little losses
Sorely grievous day by day.
Would we then so often chide him
For tire lack of thrift and gain—
Lcavingon his heart a shadow,
Leaving on our hearts a stain 1
If we knew the clouds above us.
Held by gentle blessings there,
Would wc turn away all trembling,
In our blind and weak dtspa.r I
Would we sin ink from little shadow*,
Lying on the dewy grass,
While ’tis only birds of Eden
Just in mercy flying past 7
Let us ren h within ourbosemes
For the key to other lives
Ami with love to erring nature.
Cherish good that still survives;
Bo that when our disiobed spirits
Soar to realms of light again,
V/e may say, dear Father ju gc us,
As wc judge our fellow-men."
How to Tell a Good Teacher.

telling how' many different occupation*
he had attempted. Among otheis he
had tried school teaching.
“How long did you teach ?” asked a
“Wal, I didn’t teach long , that is, I
only went to teach.”
“Did you hire out ?”
