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, JJr. For six months board - - §96 00 For “ washing - - 12,00 2103,00 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 crite !” “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 consternation. “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 er!” 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 mv trunks. 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 for flavoring. She repeated the kiss—the munifi* cent iittie nnge!—exclaiming, ••Dear, dear Richard !” “How de ligtned l am that you have come at last!” I was dumb. My mouth was sealed up the sweetness of her kisses I dared not speak lest I should dissolve the spell. ■‘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 i ¥ aw'ay. “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 doir ! “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 itv. 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 and bands. The elderly gentleman took the band of the dark haired Alice and placed it in mind. “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 blossoms. 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 ! I—” “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 body. “What are you doing.?” lie thunder ed in my ear. “Wuat arc you doing ?” I thundered in response. ‘ 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 Richard Smith?” “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 her. 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 brother. 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.

A gentleman from Swampviile was telling how' many different occupation* he had attempted. Among otheis he had tried school teaching. “How long did you teach ?” asked a bystander. “Wal, I didn’t teach long , that is, I only went to teach.” “Did you hire out ?” “Wal, 1 didn’t hire out; I only went to hire out.” “Why did you give tip?” “Wal, I give it up for some reason < r nu ll r. You see I t.-aveied in a deslr ct and inquired for lHe trustees Some body said Mr. Snickles was the man I wanted to sec. So I found Mr. Snick lea—named my object, introducing mv* s<!,— and asked himwl at he thought about lettin me try my !uck wiih the big boys and unruly gals in t z dee ■strict Me wanted to know if 1 raaly considered myself capable ; and I told him 1 wouldn’t mind his asking me a few easy qnes’ions in ’r thinetic and jography, or showing my hand writing. He s: i I no, never mind, lie could tell a good teacher by his guild 1 “Let me sec you walk olf a little wavs,” says he, “and I can tell jis’s well’s I’d hcaid you examined,” says he. “He sot in the door as he spoke,anti I thought he looked a little skittish; but I.was consid’rab!e frustrated, and didn’t mind much , so 1 turned about and walked on as smart as i know’d how He said he’d tell me when to stop, so I kep* on tell I thought I’d gone far enough—then s’pected s’llnng was to pav and looked round. Wal, the door was sh<t and Jbnicklett was gone.'" “Did you go back ?” “Wal, no—l didn’t go back.” ‘ Did you apply for another school V* “Wal. no—l didn’t apply for another school,” said the gentleman from Swampville. “I rather judge my ap% pearanee was agin me. ” —iV.
