Upon • lunny agorolng in early Jnae,

her baad, she hisliiy sought her mother,
abo was superintending dinner.
“Oh, mother I a letter fmm Goutln

aloud her cousin’a letter. “There,
father, what do you think? May I not

“Why, what a girl, Hattie 1 so eager
to leave your old father and mother I”
said tbe judge, teasiugly— ‘and with a
strango young gentleman, too I I don’t
know about trusting my Hattie to the
care of this bandsome friend of Cousin
Lizzie’s. Who knows wbat might cone

“Don’t talk 80, father 1” said Hnttie.
"You forget that L'sxie says bis father

“Well, if Robert Farlow iuherits any

young man. His father was my most
intimate college friend, aad many a

I should like to see tbe young man right

You ca'D write your Cousin L'uie that
yoar mother and I give our consent,
and that she may expect ‘our plague’ at

tnroed to his dinner.
Two weeks later, R )bert Farlow ar
rived in W , and stopped at tbe vil

arrival he called at Judge Marston’e,
with a letter of intmductioa from the
judge’s bruther, Mr. Marston, of Gle*.
A frank, manly nearing—like that of

judge’* favor; aod he curdially proffered
tbe hospitalities of bis boose to tbe
young'lawyer during liis stay in the

And Hattie, what did she think of

A week loter, and tbe westward train
bore Hattie Marston and Robert*Farlow
among its passengers. It was some
thing new for Hattie to travel, baviag
never been farther from homo tbao a
neighboting boarding-school, aod every
thing was fresh aod delightful to ber.
Tbe varied scenery of lake aod forest
delighted her, and her fresh, childish re
marks pleased her companion, wbo had
hitherto been accustoiaed ooly to the
society of fasbionahie ladies. He dis.

you'll promise not to scold me. Du
you want to bear it, Hattie? If so
promise not to look cross.”
‘‘Yea, I’ll premise, if it is anything
that I ought to know.”
‘■Well, it Is: aod ao here’s the story I
You see, for a year or more, I’«e beeo
wanting a certain gentleman and a cer
tain cousio of mino to become ac
quainted i and, for awhil>, I really des
paired of alTecting a meeting. But ooe
day a bright idea occurrcd to me. I
bad just received a letter from this
cousin of mine, who shall, fur tbe pres
ent, be nameless; and it ao chanced
that the geoileman in question, who
also shall Le without a name, happened
in as I was reading the letter, when
what could I do but read aloud a few
passages, and then tell bim of the
writer? Of conrse I had never men
tioned her before I Then I hinted that a
j'lurney East would di hiin no harm,
and that one West would do the lady
hesps ol good: so, very nnturallr, he
took tho bint, and oflTtfred to be your es
cort. Cousin Hattie. There, now, am
not I tiiee fiir plannings?”
‘‘Oh, ynu cruel, wicked girl I how
could you?” esclaiaed Hattie, hiding
her glowing face, nhicb bad' gradually
grown a deeper hoe, till her cousin fin-
isbed, when it seemed a-blaz9 with firv
—“how coulJ you do it, Hattie? I
never would have come one atep bad I
known of your plans I” And Hattie’s
voice really betrayed injured feeiiag
and wounded pride.
"There, doit’t be angry, dear Hattie,
or I shall regret having told you I” said
her cousin, putting her arm around her
and kiasing her. ‘‘There is no hirm
done, for I know Robert Furlow duosn’t
regret his journey, if I cao judge from
his countenaDco tbi:i evening; and you,
llatlid, you, of course, bav’u't beeo
foolish enough ta fall la love with him;

Bit liitle slumber refreshed Hattie
Marsiun’s eyes that niglit, for her
cousiu’s words rang ill ber ears: “You
havv’o'C been foolish enough to fall in
love with bioi?” Had she? She bid her
face in the pillow, and tears of shame
dimmed her blun eyes.
Tbe next inoroiog Hubert Farlow
called, as a matter of course, to inquire
after tho health of bis travelling com
panion. Hattio’t manner was cool and
reserved toward him, a marked change
from nhat it had previously been; aud
he felt it.
“Are you ill, Miss Marston?” he
asked, anxiously, as he noted her pale
face abd heavy eyes.
“No, »h, 001 not In tbe least,” she
answered, qnickiy, tbe color rapidly
mantling her cheek.

The wicked girl knew all the while
that her words of the previous night bad
caused tbe chaog9 in ber eotwin’s man
ner toward their visitor | but abe bad a
plan in her bead, wbich sbe was dater-
miosd should be folfllled.
Time passed, snd Hattie Marston en
joyed her visit exceedingly. A gay
summer and fall she bad at bor couiiu’a
iu the West, cantering over tbe flowery
praries, or sailing upon the lakes; and
her time was fully occupied. Her beau
ty and grace attracted much atteation,
aod many suitors were at her side; bat
to all she turned o deaf car.
There was one whom sbe saw dally
—yet who stood aloof when others
flucked around ber—ooe word from
whose lips would have ssnt. fiillest bap-
pioess to her heart. But this word was
not spokco; fur ber guarded nsnoer,
since the night of their arrival, bad con-
tiuued; and so they two, so nesr,

her aunt, looking at ber scrutinizingiy.
“Well. I don’t much wooder at it, for I

self until your uncle can go on eith you,

without a companion.”
“Huttie, dear you mnstu’t go a step
now; so don’t say snother word about
it,” said ber Cousin L'zsie. “Here we
have just begun to enjuy ourselves, siid
you must take this freak into your head
to return bonte. I shao’t allow it I so
don’t gi«e It another thought, but con

said Lizzie, turning to that gentleman,
who had just entered.
“Against what, Miss L'szte? What is
it I am expected to influence your
cousio in favor of? I must know the
case la question before I give my de
cision,” he answered, smilingly.
“Oh, of course I” answered Liszie.
"I did nut realise but that you were
here just now, when H ittie made koown
her intention uf returning home imme.
diately. Now, what wo want, is, that
you shonid try your powers of persua
sion in behalf of her remaining until
her father comes for her, which will be
only too soon for us to lose ber.”
“I hardly futter mjBOif that anything
I can say will have the desired elTcct if
you ail have failed,” he answered: “but
if on the contrary, your cousin wishrs
to go, perhaps I might be of benefit to
her on tbe journey, as the duties of my
profession call me to New York next
week. If she will again accept my es'
cort, I shall bo but too bappy in reuuer-
“Just tho thing I” said Mr. Marston
niid L'zzie in a breath; tho latter cnn-
tiniiing. nith a smile lurliing in tho cor
ners of her mouth,
“Weil, Hattie, if you are determined
to go, why, ynu cau have your old trav'

Poor Haltio dinshed, and murmured
out a few words in thauks; and then,
pleading a headache, retired.

It was the last night of their jouraey
Hattie had sunk into a deep slumber,
unbroken by the jolt of tho cars or the
hoarse breathing of tiie engine. She
slept, and the eyes of tlie young lawyer
rested upon ber with tenderness beam

CUT AND RUN.
Heory Clay came out of the Cspitol
St Washingtiio, ons dsy, ssw a frightened
woman in tbe street, vainly striving to
dwarjiiff tho attacks ofa sportive goat, and
gallantly, io spite of bis years snd ofliee,
seized the goat by the horns. The wo
man thanked bim warmly and apod hur
riedly on. Mr. Clay would liked to
bavo moved on alio—but the goat bad
its own views about tbe interfcreoce with
his iunocer.t amusement. As soon as
tho woman’a deliverer loosed bis hold oo
the two horns, the animal rose majesti
cally on bis bind legs and prepared for
a charge. In Lia own deience Mr. Clay
now took tbe animal as before by the
horns, and thus for a time they stood,
while a crowd of street boys gathered
around, immensely amused at tbe unu
sual spectacle of a Senator and a goat
pitted tbe one against the other on a
public street. As long as Mr. Clay held
tho goat by tho horns, all was well
enough. But tbe momcat tbe quadruped
was free came a fresh preparation for
a charge. Not a boy offered assistance,
but after a while ono vonjured to sng-
gesl, “Throw tbe Billy down, sir.” Mr.
Clay St once accepted and adopted too
report of the committee, and tripping
tiie goat up essayed to pass on. Before
ho could fairly turn away, however, tbe
goat was up in lofty preparation for a
now charge. Mr. Clay gave bis enemy
