A TALE OF THE LATE WAR.
BY ALICE ARNOLD.
The Knight of the White Rose.
i 1 T "’as a bright day in llie
November of JSGO, that a
’’large number of guests were
assembled at Paymonte, the estate
of Colonel Horace Arlington, of West
Virginia, to witness one of those en
tertainments which are termed “pe
culiarly Southern.” Sixteen young
knights had entered the lists to ride
at ihe ring for a prize, which was
the choosing and crowning of a Queen
of Love and Beauty. Their names
were announced by a herald as fol
•The Knight of ihe Joyous Heart.’
‘The Knight of Unbroken Faith.’
‘The Knight of the Ladve’s Blush.’
•The Knight of ihe Red Cross.’
‘The Knight of St. John.’
•The Knight of the White Rose.’
‘The Knight of the Red Rose.’
‘The Knight of the Forest.’
‘The Knight of the Field.’
‘The Knight of the Glen.’
‘The Knight of the Severed Crest.’—
(Conveying an allusion to ihe an
ticipated dissolution of the Union.)
‘The Champion of Slate’s Rights.’
‘The Knight of Unblighted Hopes.’
‘The Kn.’ght of St. George.’
‘The Champion of True Love,’ and
‘The Champion of Minstrelsy,
When ihe herald had ceased speak
ing, there was a flourish of trumpets,
and the knights, who were drawn
up in glittering array on the lawn in
front of the broad balcony upon
which the ladies were placed, all
doffed their helmets to the ladies
whom they had respectively chosen,
and prepared for the trial of horse
manship. They were all richly at
tired and well mounted, and each
one wore his ladye’s badge. As
they rode of]'to the appointed place,
the band struck up a lively anti pa
triotic strain ; and many were the
hearts that throbbed anxiously and
pulsesatbat quickened to behold their
movements.' One might almost have
fancied that they were on the eve of
a battle. It seemed a foreshadow
ing of the years thal followed ; and,
alas! how few ofthose joyous youths,
now revelling in the first flush of
manhood, were destined to realize
the hopes breathed for them ! How
many, ere another twleve month had
sped, lay mouldering under the grass
“which now beneath them” grew !
How many mothers and maidens,
now radiant with happiness and
pride, two years later, when

difficult to decide upon the victor,
and the exerciser lasted far out into
the a iter noon«. Refreshments were

suspense was general; when sud
denly there arose a cheer from the
judges standing on the trial-ground,
andi'The Knight of thef-White Rose’
was echoed from lip to lip. He was

of yypll-imilaled. Milan armor, with

was a feat worthy bf'an accomplish

unanimously adjudged to him.
‘Who is he ” queried someone
on the balcony.
“A Captain de Caroll, from Lou
isiana, a cousin or something of Her
bert Ruthven’s wife, and staying
with them at Elsinore,” replied an
other. “You see he has taken as
his badge the white rose which

a very fair blonde, with wavy gold
en hair and deep blue eyes, and pre
sented a striking contrast to the ap
pearance of the victorious knight,
whose raised visor disclosed a coun
tenance ot unmistakably Creole type.
He was pale, but his eyes glowed
with animation ; and the hand that
had held the reins so firmly first, now
trembled as he placed the coronal
upon her brow.
Half an hour later the company
sat down to a grand dinner; and
the entertainment was "concluded by
“Maude,” said Colonel Arlington
to his daughter, next day, “it is
wrong for a young lady to show such
a decided preference tor any gentle
man as you did for Captain de Ca

“Under the circumstances, papa,”
she replied, coloring, “I thought it
was allowable. You see he was my
chosen champion for the occasion,
“Thai docs not alter the fact,”
interrupted her father, who had been
narrowly scanning her countenance,
“The young man is a comparative
stranger to you, Maude, and I tell
you plainly I don’t care to encour
age an intimacy with him. He is a

doubt; but 1 don’t fancy these
“But, papa, Captain de Caroll is
not a Frenchman; he was born in
“He is of French descent, and, I
understand, was at school some

previous to his being entered at West
Point. We know nothing of him
farther than his relationship to Mrs.
Rulhven; aud her fast manners have
not prepossessed me in favor of her
States-people. Once for all, Maude,
1 tell you I don’t desire a nearer ac
quaintance with Captain de Caroll!
Furthermore, I am resolved that you
shall not make your promised visit
to Elsinore until he has left.” And
with an emphatic twist in bis arm
chair, the Colonel took up his news
paper, and his daughter felt that it
would be unwise to continue the
—“So long as ye both shall live.
Past the hour of sunset,-and in the
still gloaming two figures were slow
ly sauntering up and down the long
avenue of oaks that led to the dwel
ling house at Paymonte, and con
versing in low tones.
“Oh, Henri, I am so unhappy!”
“And wherefore, my soul ?"
“It seems so wrong to be here
with you without papa’s knowledge,
and when I know, too, that it to a
gainst his expressed wishes.”
“Your father is hugely prejudiced
against me, on account of my foreign
education, I believe,” said Captain
de Caroll; “but reflect for an iar
slant, Maude, and tell me it thia is
not great injustice. Maude, Maude,
do you really love me', little one

“You do not give me thd lr«t

And her hand dropped from his
arm, while her (ace grew deadly
“Yes, I am going on to Washing

wish to be one of the first to volun

“But why must you go so soon ?”
“If you really wish me to defer
my departure, you have but to speak
the word ; say, shall it bo yea or
aay ?” And he bent closer over her.
But she only covered her face
with her hands and burst into tears.
“Id o-o-n-t k-n-o-w !” she sobbed.
“I see I must not detain you any
longer,” he said in a low, smothered
voice, in which irritation and bit
ter disappointment were slrangely
blended; then changing his maimer,
“by-the-bye, here is a note from Rose.
Good evening.” And belore she
could detain him, he had placed the
note in her hand aud walked rapidly
Dashing back -her tears, Maude
returned to the bouse, and going to
her owr, room, lit a candle and open
ed the note. It read as follows :

your own true woman’s nature. Be
lieve me, dear, a woman’s first duty
is to the man whom she loves, and
who has singleil her out from all the
rest. Henri’s life is bound up in
you; and you are (unconsciously, it
may be) trifling with his deep ear
nest passion, and storing up misery
for both. Don’t drive ham to despe

more bitter cause to rue it than your
self. Child, I want to sec and speak
with you. I hold a promise ot a vis

I now claim.
Come to-morrow, or as soon as
you can to your very true friend,
Elsinore, Nov. —, 18(50.”
That evening, at supper, Maude
sought and obtained her father’s
consent to her setting out for Elsi
nore the following day, “I am not
particularly desirous of your being
much in Mrs. Ruthven’s society,”
he said, grumbhngly, “but I must

daughter's quickly averted face, but
said nothing; and as she kissed him
good-night, inwardly returned thanks
to Providence that the fascinating

Captain de Caroll did not start
for Washington that night, as was
generally believed ; and three days
later, in the early grey of morning, a
young couple knelt .together before
thie altar of the little parish chapel,
near Elsinore, and were united in
the holy bonds of wedlock. There
was no one present but the clergy
man and one witness, who gave the
bride away. This was Mrs. Her
bert Rutbven; her husband had gone
to Richmond ou business, to be ab
sent for a considerable time; and
Rose, who delighted in anything that
savored of intrigue and mystery, had
encouraged the general belief that
she had accompanied him; thus ob
viating the inconvenient chance of
•iujbprftr ipt order that the Jo vers
might bay* perfect and undisturbed
possession of Elsinore.
The final benediction was pro
nounced, the clergyman had wilh
drawn; and Henri, clasping his
trembling bride to bis heart, pressed
his lips to hers, murmuring fondly,
“my wiljs, my owii!”

One thing must be conceded to
women, namely, the grit to endure
any amount of inconvenience, or
even positive pain, for the sake of
dress. Now men—what failings so
ever they may have, and time would
lail me to enumerate them—always,
io my knowledge, slop short of phys
ical torture, when they must choose
between that and “the fashion.”
Catch them at it! The good fellows,
loving their ease better than wives,
houses, or lands, shake their heads
with a most decided negative at tight
boots, tight hats, light gloves; and
welcome flannel under-garments
and gum shoes, though their propor
tions may be thereby increased. This
much I will say for them. But wo
men! I have seen them, pale about
the mouth, trying bravely to walk on
those absurd pegs ol'heels run under
the middle of their feet, while every
muscle and joint was crying out in
vain for mercy. 1 have seen them
shivering, with defiant blue noses in
the liosiy air, while they ttied, inour
January snows, to keep their throats
warm with a—necklace! I’ve seen
iheir fingers looking like stuffed saus
ages, in gloves at least two or three
sizes too small; and when it was
impossible for them to btmd one
linger joint. I’ve seen them walk
miles with a heavy water-proof cloak
hanging over their arms, because
that silk velvet suit must be worn, at
all costs, and rain would ruin it.
And now, just as every woman out-*
side of a lunatic asylum ought to re
joice in emancipation from long skirls
in the streets, fashion says they must
he worn. And for one, lam heartiy
glad, when they are, to see a good
| quarter ol a yard of mud embroider
ing these expensive silk and velvet
trains; and belter yet, embroidering
as I know ihey must, their stockings
and under skirts. As to catching cold
the world can spare such fools belore
they bring others into the world.
So I don’t wear mourning for them.
Now, do you suppose women like
these care about “female suffrage?”
No, sir. They prefer female suffering.
It is well to break ground for the
car of progress, but you can’t hoist
women like that into it against their
will. You’ve got to begin upon the
little girls. Stop their candy feeding,
their hot pasiry luncheons at school
recess, their “childreu’s parties from
seven till eleven” at nighi; their un
suitable clothes at all limes, if you
want women who will ever have
sense enough to know their rights
from their wrongs, or breadth enough
or philanthropy enough to care, when
their own lives are easy, whether
those of other women are hard or not.
That's the whole of it! Give women
healthy bodies and an intelligent
education, and you’ll have no need
to be jogging their elbows in the
direction of their “right.” They will
walk up and lake them, just as inev
itably and just as naturally, as a
man takes his wife after the marriage
ceremony; and tffty won’t care, any
more thaw he either, what bystanders
think about it.— Fanny Fern, in
