"I thought. perhaps," said honest John Deadwood, who measured six fed in his stockings, and hud the face of an amiable giant, "you might want to go buck with me to-day, Doily. Your aunt ha- come on from Kansas, and there is going to be a dance out in the old barn, with plenty of candles ;und evergreen boughs. And mother said she would be proud to web ome you to the old farmhouse, Dolly.

( "Because, Dolly," said the young1 man, reddening "it reminds us of you. And the meadow-lark in the cage sings beautifully; and old red Brindlehas a spotted calf." "Has she?" questioned Dolly, indif ferently. Joint Dead wood looked hard at her "l)olly," said he, "you don't care about the old home any longer!" "Yes, I do, "said, Dolly rousing her self, "but " She paused, suddenly, the rosy color i ru-hing in a carmine tide to her check, an involuntary smile dimpling j the corners of h r fresh lijs as she I ginn ed through the smilax trails in the window. John Deadwood, following In the di rection of her eyes, glanced, too, just in time to see a tall gentleman lift his hat and how as he went jauntily past. "Is that it," said John bitterly. "Is what?" petulantly retorted Dolly. "I'm sure I don't know why we are standing here waiting now, and I with twenty-eight bouquets to make up by '2 o'clock. That's all, John, Dthink, Don't forget the liiiies of the valley." "But you haven't answered me, Dolly." " "Ans wend vou what?" "About the dance in the old barn, . aiul coming back with me when the wagon returns at 5 o'clock." "It's quite out of the question," said Dolly, listlessly. "Dolly." Well." "You promised me, years ago " "Nonsense!" said Dolly, flingingthe azaleas and pinks around in fragrant confusion. "I was only achild then." "But you've no right to go back on your word, Dolly, child or no child." ! "I never promised, John." ' "But you made me believe that one day you would be my wife.

"Here comes a customer. Please,John, don't stand there any longer, looking like a ghost !" , And honest, heart broken John turned, and went with a heavy heart out to where the wagon stood, and old Roan was waiting with ..down-drooping head and half-closed eyes. "It does seem to me," he muttered between his teeth, "that there is noth ing left to live for any longer.'' Dolly looked half remorsefully after him. I've almost a mind to call him back," said he to herself, as she picked, out a bunch 6f white violets for the new- ; comer. I do like John Deadwood ; but! I think he has no business to consider limelr engaged to me, just because o; that bov-and-girl . nonsense. Oikv ideas change as one gets on in life.'! And Dolly's cheek was like the re liction of the pink azaleas as she thought of . Mr. Fitzalan and the tur quoise ring that he hadgiveu her a a troth flight, y And Mr. Vixhim came in presently. "I've a note from the Sedge wicks, on Fifth avenue," said he hurriedly. They always order their flowers from S.rvosx, but Servoss has disapiiointco them.

Aud Doily went, h.r aiiad still on . the turquoise rinsr, with a band of vir- ' gin gold and its radiant blue stone. The Sedirewiek mansion wns a brown Mrs. Sedgewi k, a stately lady, in a ! Watteau wrapper and blonde cap, re- eeived Dolly in the great drawing i a ' CO jllv in the ureal drawimr i room "Oh!" sail she", lifting her eyeglasses, "you're from the llorist's, are you? Well, I know nothing alout the things I only want the rooms to look ele gant. Tell your husband to spare no estense." 1 "Mr. Frixham is not my husband," eaid Dollv. "Your father, then." But he isn't my father," insisted Dollv. half lauzhitur. "He's no rela tion at all. I will tell him however." "Exactlv." said Mrs. Sedzewick. "I particularly desire plentv of white ! rts T m tnl.l thev enstonmrv I at this sort of affair. It's an engage- 1 merit party." "Indeed?" said Dolly, trviug to look interested. "Between my daughter Clara and Mr. Alfred Fitzalan," said Mrs. Sedge wick, with conscious complacency. Dolly said nothing, but the room, with its fluted cornices, and lofty ceil ings, seemed to swim ar-und her like the waves of the sea. And as she went out, ":ith Mrs. Sedgewick still chatting about white rosebuds and bo-.onia-leaves, she passed the half open door of a room, all hung with blue violet. where a yellow tressed beauty s:t smiling on a low divan, with Fitzalan bending above her. 1 "He ha only been 'amusing himself with me," said Dolly to herself. There was a sharp ache at her heart ; ; but after all it was only the sting ofu-hieh the preceding encounter took wounded pride.

"God bless you, Dolly !" said the young man, fervently "For good and all, John, if you'll take m," said Dolly, slowly.

So the pretty llower girl vanished out of the bower of smilax and rose-, buds. The Sedgewick mansion wasn't decorated at all and Mr.. Frixham had lost his new customer. And the tur quoise ring came back to Mr. Fitzalan in a blank envelope. The Waltz of Our Fathers. Was thus described in a letter written i by an American traveller in Italy in ls.V. "Among the corrupting fashions ! which have been introduced here b the French officers is a lascivious dance I ailed the waltz, originally learned by j them In Germany, but which is ex- j actly adapted to the taste of a youn 1 French officer who is in quarters in a city tilled with pretty women, whose morals are loo-e enough to join in the dance.

Twenty-two Northern States are represented by iTd electors, an average of IU) eketors t each State, while only l.'JS electors are assigned to the sixteen Southern States, ! an average of S'l electors to each tate. i ! Thus the Northern States choose tive eighths and the Southern States three eighths of the K!e:.-toral College. In 1870 each section was subdivided politi j cully. The Republicans carried eigh i teen Northerh States, having 10C elec- toral votes, a, d carried, or counted, as Democrats came literally within oneol j balancing the exhibit by a majority oj 100 votes in the Southern Stales. Mr. Hayes dr w 89.73 per cent., or very nearlj- nine-teuths, of his electoral sup port from the North, and only lu.'JT per cent., or a little more than one- tenth, from the South. On the other hand, Mr. Tilden derived 33.34 pel cent., or almost three-eighths, of his support in the Electoral College from the 2sorth, while 01. 00 per Cent., or something over five-eights of the whole came from the Southern States.
