Seeing in your paper a prescription
for making a fashionable woman, I can
not resist the inclination to find you a
receipt for a fashionable young man. -Take
equal proportions of impudence,
arrogance, indolence and extravagance ;
uift welli throwing out every particle of
bra(i)n ; mix welj with brandy or wine;
grate on the' ears (of refinement) a
number of sulphuric oaths ; flavor with
tobacco, whisky and musk stir well
with a fancy rat an one ornamented
with a pretty, little font i preferred! add
ignorance ami dissipation until it is the
consistency of putty; then put into a
ihold. After tho figure is complete,
part the hair in the middle, brush care
fully in a low wave over the forehead,
aud then brush the ends up again on
each side to make room for the elonga
tion of the ears. Apply " Whisker un
der'' and whisky-! randy to. tho. upper
lips, and when finally a' mustache
makes its appearance, watch it closely;
if it shows the least sign , of 'going back'
on you, sjtick all the ends together with
imx, and hold on to it for dear life !
If the eyes and nose are not bright
enough in expression and color, touch
them up with a little 'lire-water' and an
eye-glass,' If too poor for the market,
make up for lack of pnivo in rotundity
of person by inflating with all manner
f evil spirits. Add a gay cravat with
long flowing ends, as an offset to tawny
side-whiskers ; a mammoth seal ring, as
an ornamental brass knuckle, G ive the
finishing touches to tfye l?'reuch boots,
and elevate them on the back of a chair,
in some public place, Ho dry. Smoke
vr'ti a (accent cigar, nd then hangup
till wanted for use. Su y South.

ed pretty Mamie Ashton looking" from
:Yes," said Kate Brandon disconso-
lately, "horfid -weather without any of
the fun it brings to us when in the city,
an old barn of a! house without even a
pair of skates or a sled." '
'I mean to have a slide down that
hill," laughed Mamie! if it has to be on
the door mat." :
"We talk like .a couple of boys kept
in at recess replied Kate," but' there is
the breakfast bell, I guess we can slide
doWn the banisters, and in a spirit of
mischief, she seated herself on the railing
and was whirling with .ljghtning rapidi
ty down the winding stairs, and landed
fo abruptly at the front door as to as-
tonish the servant girl, ' and a strange
gentleman who had just been invited
in. Mamie convulspd with laughter, j
dodged back, while Kate In paintul
confusion hung her head and rushed
from the passage.
Kate Brandon and Mamie Ashton
were on a visit to Mamie,s Aunt. Tie
first week or two they were wild-with
delight over the larjre grove, great old
fashion house witlv wide hospitable
hearths, but two ' or three weeks of
rain, snow and sleet, without e'en a
boy to jilve variety in the way of a
sleigh ride or skating frollic was more
than the bill called-for, and just as
the sun had shone bnrhtly for one day,
and they had made preparations to re-
turn home in time to share, the fun of
the 14th of February, it wa.r too bad
for it to snow ; feeling a little desperate
they determined to make up for it in
some 'way, A beautiful beirinnina
surely thought Kate as she retreated
to her room as soon as khe could nass
... : I
the passage iinperceived, "Where- she
found Mamie quite merry over her
"Don't bo a goose Mamie ! HTio do
you reckon that was? I'll be impris
oned here forever before I'll face him
"But vou have'nt faced him yet."
laughod Mamie "von went down back

" Oh ; dear nr. she said pressing
one hand to ,hor side while she wiped
her eves with the other, T can eevou
now. like a streak of forked lightning.
T tell you Kate that fellow was stunned.
Tie wont get over the shook in a week,
and again the room rang with her mer
riment. . ! -
A tap at tho door and Nancy's face
rearing a good- natured grin was hrust
in. "Ole miss say come down to break -

"Nancy, who was that gentleman j

"You . mean seed Kate coming down
laughed Mamie. f '
"Well," said Kate just go down and
tell your od Miss that I have got a
swimming in my head and don't want
"Oh ! Kate please
go, I can t go y
myself. Where is th Doctor, Nancy?"
Wid Ole miss in do dinTing. room.
"Ah T said Mamie
is Cousin Hal Ellsworth, Aunt Mary's
nephew. You will have to sea him, so
come on." .
"I just shant do it ! if he 'stays here
a week. I ; hate him for poking here
this soon in the morning mortifying me
in this way.''
Nancy had disappeared and delivered
Kates message, and a merry musical
laugh reached the girls
"The haieful thing is laughing at me
now,' she said with a pout
"If I were in your place Kate I'd
treat that as a joke, your acting in this
way looks as though you cared a good
deal about his opinion.''
"Well I don't, but f would have been
ashamed for your Aunt Marv to have
caught me performing such a Tom-boy
feat, but if you think he will place a
wrong construction ou ray not seeing
him, I'll go down just to knock the
conceat out of him."
So the girls entered the dining room
and were presented to Dr. Ellsworth,
whose handsome face with great laivh
Mg eyes, was anything but hateful,
shook hands with Mamie, calling her
cousin, bowed politely to M'i.ss Brandon
who bit her lips and wuld not see the
extended hand, but gave her attention
to Mrs, Ashton, who was asking how
she fe't. '
"Thank you, my message was only a
jest, I am quite well."
The IVn-tor's fascihatinsr manners
wore not to be resisted, and he was a
daily visitor often staying until a late
hour. He was wealthy, an only child,
and a physician of considerable note.r
That he was in love with 'the sancy
Kate, none doubted, andshe had almost
forgotten the awkward incident of their
I first meeting. They visited his mother
by especial invitation, had" - delightful
skates on the und and many nice
sleigh rides, jKo longer quarreling
about the great bara of a house but
with a feeling of regret repacked their
trunks to return home. They arrived
in the city a ,-few days before the 14th
February. Their old admirers "wel
comed them back, for two such spright
ly creatures were! sadly missed whenever
they left the city:
Mamie did not know how deeply
Katie had fallen in love with the young
Doctor. CoquoUiih Kate said very
little about him, for he had not. said in
exact words that he loved her, in fact
there was a humor in all he 'said and
did. that made her think him more ot
fascinaimr than fascinated. The very hie
uncertainty made him an object uf
greater interest. Imagine her anger aud
mortification when on. the 14th Febru
ary; among a half dozen beautiful and
costly valentines, one should come to
cause her snch humiliation : In all her
school davs she had never received a
Ellsworth should have wound up their
nice little flirtation with such disre
spect, she knew ! he sent" it. He was
so full of -"mischief, .she would let him
see that he could "not make sport of her
A comi.i valentine in
deed! Yes there it w-s m the most
slowing colors enough to make the lit-
tie beauty indignant ! Headed in let
ters of lightning, " The bewitching
Aeronaut." There was the winding
stairs, with the most redieulous figure
equally ballanced on the railing
A perfect burlesque in fashion and
figure, a pair of horrid slipshod feet
with ilf shaped and spindled ankles
hkrhin the air! At the foot of the
stairs was a dandy, perfectly aghast
a pair of saddle bags .had fallen to the
floor from which rolled pill boxes amd
vials. - ,
She determined to be even with him!
If she had been pleased with him and
gracious accordingly, shq would undo it
all, by making him believe that it was
only a past time. She purchased a
ludicrous valentine called 'The young
Doctor.'! j The picture was a large
Goose in a dm!g store, with this, vtrse
No Doctor is he, but a quack ! :

To put him in a dihh on his back,
Would be an act of humanity.
This was scarcely severe enough for
his impertinence, so she added a few
more lines, without even trvinir to dis-
guise her writing. -I
A trial was made to convert him.

But he's a pill too much for inc.
Even if sugar coated.
She thought tnis -as much better
and .it was accordingly sent.
Several days passed. Invitations lusd
been sent but to Mamie Ashtons birth
day party. She wrote Cousin Hal a
note inviting him to come, and he was
urged to elo so by George Ashton
Hal Ellsworth had received his: valen
tine, aud entirely innocent of ever hav
ing given 'Miss Brandon any cause for
such treatment, was hurt aud also in
dignant. She ';had not even attempted
to disguise her beautiful writing, which
she knew he admired so much. He
would go to the party however, if only
to show Miss Brandon that "h(T was
a gentleman, and one who would not
annoy hei with his attentions. j
The room was already filled when
Miss Bmndon made her appearance,
She was mora beautiful than ever, in
full evening dres. And inspite of his
pride, Hal Ellsworth felt a thrill of
admiration for this girl who had will,
ingly won his heart, and then thrown
it back to him in doggeral rhymes.
He was with Mamie when Kate came
forward to speak, "Surely ; you and
cousin I'al, do not need an introduction
said Mamie, "I do not" replied Hal,
with ratfier a disdainful smile, bowing
coldly, j I am snre I shall
get Miss! Brandon !!'
She blushed guiltily, merely hew
ing, and was soon the gayest of the
gay, for she was a great belle. Hal
was equally as lively, and tho two in
the room who were the most miserable.
made themselves most noted for mirth.
But Mamie saw, that though both
seemed to enjoy themselves, they did
not eak" to each other. What could
it mean? So when Hal took a seat by
her she asked. 'Is n't Katie beauti
"Yes,'' he repli 3d bitterly, 4and the
most consummate flirt I ever met."
. "No sh is not,'' replied her friend
warmly, "she is the sweetest girl in
the world, and, would not trifle with
"If you think so, she has deceived
you as she did me."
"If it is not inquisitive, h.ow has she
deceived you ?"
1 "Why,'' said he coloring, by yes by
pretending to like me when she felt
nothing for tue but contempt"
'Contempt for you: Oh! cousin
Hal. 1 kuow better than that, if she
has treated you differently to night it

the thinks you sent her a
g valentine. He grasped I;er
hard excitedly, "she thinks I sent her a
shocking valentine -
uYes, I reckon she does, I sent her
one just tor fun and have not seen her
irince to have a lamdi over it."
Kate had jut. taken her scat at the
piano, and lh she ceaed paying. Dr.
Ellsworth' stepped forward offering his
arm tor a r,vomena;;e.

gajrccZ to dar.ee.'

a little pause coutinued calmly, though

me your opinion of myself. It has

stately grace he left her.
''Her mortification was overwhelm-
to think that she nad sent those
miserable verses to Dr. Ellsworth,
taking the first arm that was offered
her she 1 ft the room, after a few
turns in the broad hall, she said, Mr.
Williams I feel very badly, J wish
you would mention o Mr, Saunders
that I wish to return home.''
"''Mamie came in haste to the recep
tion room, Katie what is the matter?
Don't g. home."
Ch ! Mamie, I am ruined! My
hasty tenq er is always getting me in
to trouble !
What is it. now dear ?" asked
I 'Katie hesitated a moment and then
said, I got a 1 orrid old valentine, and
thought I) . Ellsworth sent it, and
answered it with one wors if anT
thing! and I am so mortified.'' '
Oh !. shew, said Mamie laughing.
that is nothing, I sent youis, and
thought you would accuse me t!.e first
one, I'll make it all right with cousin
Hal. I think it is real fanny. I've got
something particular to tell you. so go
to the Library and stay a few mo
ments. I wont keep you there long-
some one is calling me now."
As Mamit entered the passage she
found Di. Ellsworth removing Lis hat
and cloak from the rack. ''Cousin
Hal,'' said she drawing hirn to one
side, "a little mischief of mine is
making three friends very miserable,
if you could have seen the valentine I
sent, Kntie you would forgive every
thing she has said or elonc since, now
that she knows you did not send it, she
is distressed beyond measure at her
being so hasty, you are indignant
and I am filled with remorse; lets all
be friends again."
Miss Brandon has too low an opin
ion of me to wish a reconciliation," he
There is no more trutn in the valen
tine you received, than tho one I sent
"Oh ! Mamie, if I only thought so,"
he said hurriedly.
"I know so," she repeated earnestly,
Katie is in the library waiting for me,
go stake friends with her."
Dr. Ellsworths heart was pleading
more eloquently than even Mamie, so
putting down his hat he went to the
library. There sat th beautiful
haughty Kate by the table, her head
bowed on her arm. She did not raise
her head as the door opened and shut.
He knelt before her, and taking her
Jiand said, "Katie I love you. and am
waiting for you to say, that the valen
