Fresh from a long course of stud v in' Swis Seminaries and Ger- ajsaiiun nmi was less lue tanu oi uis uirni than a problem'to be investigated. America and Americans. He had been at home too . short a time, to feel ramilfar withi " either and his shy and - studious habits -and lack ol faniiliaritywith society were a barrier; to .easy, acquaintance. He lingered now; watching with a veiled interest thee scrowd descend ing to breakfast. Papas and mam mas with4 their broods of lively, noisy: children ; college :.- students brown with tan and muscular with bar practice: girls innumerable, in all styles of blonde and brunette, but.all prettjait, seemed to him, J marvelously pretty, ana . wonder fully well dressed, witffease of man ner and plonib siich-as' ntr other girls 6f - hi limited experience had ever possessed.- There was a diffi culty in ; this universal prettiness. lake a bee in a .wilderness; ot flow ers, his eyes hovered over the broad neia oi oeanty, saxea Dy possiDincy, and puzzled where to alight, while gay good mornings were exchanged and an Increasing clatter from the dining-room beyond showed that the- morning meal was well under wayv-1;;:' ''''v'-"' ; v Ajrattiing sound attracted his at tention ; and looking out, he beheld a most astonishing carriage draw ing np at the door of the hotel. It was simply a broad elastic plan kj swung - between lour wheels, htted with a couple of seats, and drawn by. h rough small horse a "buck board, " rn short, familiar enough to New England eyes, but a most re markable vehicle to those of Robert Arnold, who had never before seen anything like it r; iii any quarter of the globe. " - Its occupant, besides the Iwy who drove i; it, was a j oung lady in a careless wrao er' shawl, and a hat knot oi auuuni-cuesiiiUb iiau, wuo tie- scended without a word, and float ed past him without a glance, but' whose face and air produced a sud den excitement in the breast of our young metallurgist. iWhOwwa3i that W,-. her demanded of the hotel olerk, a true son of the tioil, whb, 'af ailing.- himself of a brief leisure, bad come out to snun the morning gale. . 'That! who? Oh, lier. She's one of them hauled mealers." "One of tchat did you say?" "Mealers hauled mealers." ' "What under heaven is a hauled mealer?" demanded Robert, com pletely mystified. :,Tlie clerk surveyed him with a contempt but slightly tinged with pity. "Why, where were you brought np Vy he said.,. .."Hain't you. never heard before 6ttainea1e'r 1 Mealers sleep out, and conie in for meals. When they're hauled in buckboards like that one, they're; hauled meal ers. See? Guess you ain't one of our country people." 'HTes, I am. I was born one, at least ; but it's fifteen years since I've been in the United States, and I never came to Mount Desert be fore, and never heard of a mealer. Do you know this lady's name ?" "Well, yes, but it's kind ol slipped iray memory for the moment. Musty -Mustard Musgrove. That's it Miss Musgrove. She's stayin' over to one of them small cottages on the bank, and she's made an ar rangement, with Ira Higgins's folks to be hauled down to her meals." By a liappy' -chance, as Robert considered .:.it; -he found himself, wheri.b-strolled in to a belated breakfast, : seated opposite the 4hauled:. uiealer." She seemed to have no party with her, but a pretty girri4n-,jblu, boating suit had pulled ic "chair close to hers, and wa&chattingtaway in girl fashion, whileMissr Musgrove trilled with . bejj'oJMwduignidly stirred a cupVbf ambiguoHifi'ee. . A fortnight passed,- and the situ ation?emairied: unchanged. Shy by nature and stiff by habit, Robert made no advances to the closer ac- jqttaintance bj his fair neighbor at when she entered ?iaother bow when she leffiatthat was all, yet gradually iinlntance of- his fair neighbor at there grew.bver biln a sense oi inti mate reiatioii:witli Jier. He knew he dressesherS .-.attitudes ; he guessed at hera(KMs, autl fol lo wed the slight and' inolntel "changes of tier charming face. -MfeslMnsgrove neither, detected nor suspected this cltee-ebseryatiouon the part of her silent ria-a-xis. . She saw only a gentleman like, taciturn young uiau, nbstH-bed in, his breakfast or his dinner. "R:ithcr.an uucoiiiinoii face," she said to herself, "not tjuite American" and then she for got him. She usually brought a book or newspaper with her to ta ble, aud busied herself with it when no one was sitting with her ; but this was not. .often, for she had -a large following of young -girls, who were forever rn lining across -the room to discuss plans or whisper iuiportaut secrets. Several of these girls were pretty, aud more than oue bit of graceful by-play was aimed across Miss "Musgrove's shoulder at the insensible Robert, but he never found :this out. The "hautedsmealer" was theVlirst' wo man whom lie had ever looked at closely, and he did not seem able to see any lace but hers. .. Motherless, sisterless; brought up in an almost conventual atmosphere oi study he had seen but shadows in a glass so far; novf the shadows were tak iug substance, and like Philammou, the j-outhful monk of the Laura, he was-filled with zeal- and bewilder ment. How many things there were that he Bad hot even suspected 1 Was it possible that the world was lull. jot. women like tnis women, soipi swecso; irbbleysb "entrancing itfTvr. all their looks and ways4. And then he told .himself that this could not be.. There was but one; she was unique, incomparable, not merely a-speeinieu of a type. How many youthful lovers have thought and will think -the-saine as the tide oi' life flows on ! Accident did our shy hero a good turn at last, as accident sometimes will. Walking by himself one af ternoon i ; along the wild shore be yond Saul's Cliff, be came upon ..the lady of his thoughts at.a nvoment of evident difficulty. Her little dog had slipped and fallen tpthe bottom of ttther'hign'shlflving cliff, tide was making in .-fast, and she was evidently hesitating whether or not to climb down to his assistance a question complicated by the doubt as to whether, once down, she would be able to climb up again. Robert ' grasped ; the situation promptly, and proffered help, which wras gladly accepted. To his expe rienced powers the cliff presented no difficulties, and in five minutes the rescued terrier was in his mis tress's arms and the sweet voice which Robert knew so well was .ut tering cordial thanks. The dog had lamed .himself iu his fall and limped and whined when set tlown. Another opportunity,. 4'May I not carry ,;hiiix Iiome for 3'ouf" Robert asked. "You' are quite too good. I fear you will fiud him troublesome." "Oh, not at all. I like dogs." So the two walked on over the cliffs, with sea vistas on one hand, and mountain glimpses on the othjer, and before they reached the little brown cottage in the field, Robert's shyness had tied under. the spell of his companion's cordial ease and tact, and he, found himselt talking j fluently and witlr- pleasure asr he had jiever 'talked, to a lady lelbYe in all his, life. ... ""What a 'beautiful view I lie' said,;gazing seaward from the door of the cottage. " "I think so. It is my favorite of all the-jnany beautiful views at liar i Harbor. You must come and see it often, Mr. Arnold. My little pi azza is quite at your service any afternoon if yon want a quiet place in wiiich to study or smoke, and can not find one to your taste at Rodick's. I never use it myself, except in the morning and evening; but 1 hope you will occasionally come there also to see me. Thank you so much for your kindness to Tatters." "What a frank, charming crea ture!" thought Robert, as he made his way across the stubble fields to ward the hotel. "How few girls are capable ot such unaffected sin cerity, without any hesitations : or arriercs pensccs. Dear me ! if they only knew- what an attraction it is !" Which reflection might lead to a doubt as to whether Mr. Ar nold's experience of the sex at Bar Harbor had or had not been blessed to his perceptive faculties. "Saw you walkin' with Miss Musgrove, and carryu' her dawg," remarked the clerk, with a grin,. as. he came in. "Didn't know you at first. Thought maybe 'twas him come back." Him 1 who 1 Robert was too proud to ask, but the pronoun rankled in his mind. Not for long, however. As time went on, ami acquaintance pro gressed with his charmer, and no "him" appeared to mar the harmo nious flow of events, the circum stance passed from his'nieinory. He went often to the little brown cot tage in the stubble field, spending solitary afternoons there with a ci gar and a miueralogical treatise, and now and then a morning fc7e--tete with its fair mistress. Sunset usually brought a rush of idlers to the piazza, and their appearance was his signal for flight. Quite at his ease now with Miss Musgrove, he was shy and difficult of access as ever to' all others, lie invaria bly reconnoitred the premises from a point of observation in the fields, and the flutter of alien petticoats on the porch would suffice to send him back again to the hotel. Miss Musgrove, who treated him with the frankness of an older sis ter. rallied him occasionally on this! peculiarity. "I can't help it," he would say, "it; is my bringing up." "Hut you are not shy yitii me.". "No; but that is different. You are so -what shall 1 call it ' so yxrc. You understand you put me at ease.1' "So would these other ladies pretty stMUi it you gave them a chain:1." But Robert only shook his head. So, lapped in a foolish paradise, unwilling or unable to analyze the deepening spf II which held him, Robert Arnold drifted thhvough .In ly, through August, aud into the heart of that' golden September which is only known to the dwell er's of the North lands, and sudden ly, like a frost in ripe roses, came the blight of hope. Miss Musgrove went suddenly away for a couple of daysto Portland,, her maid: said.' People were quitting the island . in shoals by that time, - the hotels were nearly 'empty, aud the loneli ness of those two days'was in part accounted for by the empty tables and the closed rooms. But when the third morning caine -and, Rob ert, with a sense of reviving- HIV?, stood ready to help his friend frojj.i her buckboard, the appalling appa rition of a gentleman sitting at her side presented itself a broad shouldered, handsome, brown na val "officer, with an evident' air of ropriecorship about mm, which as unpleasant as it was uuac- cougteble. ' "Who is that?" Robert demand ed of? ilie "clerk, who had come out, as nsualf; at the ; sound of the wheels. "'-'' " . "That? why that's him." "Her brother ?" "No; she liain't got no brother as ever I heard. That's him I -tell you Miss Musgrove's husband, lie's a lootenant or somethin', and his ship's been cruising down to theilsbuius.ll.,v. . , .. "You said- ,she was Miss Mus grove." ' .' And then it flashed upon Robert that in the island" vernacular mar' ried women and girls .were alike "miss," with the difference of a letter in orthography, but no dif ference at all in pronunciation. He saw itaii now. iucn a stupid, such a ridiculous mistake as it was! But the consequences w ere no less hard to bear. . He went to his. room, and sat down to think it over. The more he reviewed the matter, the more unnecessary his sufferings seemed to him, and the more distinctly his own lault. Beginning with a wrong -impression he had never given himself: a chance to, correct it. lie had shrunk jjrith a Jpolish hyness from people jUvhen half an hour 61 their compauy would, have revealed the truth. One question, the most trifling accident, would have revealed it; but he had never asked the question, and always prevented the accident. The girls called her Lila; he : had avoided using auj' name, with the instiuct of a lover, when he spoke to her, and had- said "you," while of her lie never spoke except to himself. So he had gone on and on, plung ing deeper and deeper into a vain affection," nd What a fool ho had wen ! The only comfort was that she had hot been in ihe-least to blame, and that she never know his mistake, or the pain it caused him. A little note reachod the brown cottage that afternoon. "Dear Mrs. Musgrove, I am leaving Bar Harbor so suddenly that I have no opportunity to make my farewells to you. A chance has offered for a miueralogical tour in the provinces, and when this note reaches yon 1 shall be on my way to the Grand Menan., Please ac cept my most cordial thanks for all your many kindnesses to me, aud with my congratulations on Lieu tenant Musgrove's safe return, be lieve me, "Yours faithfullj-, Robert Arnold." Mrs. Musgrove, sitting on her piazza with her sailor beside her, read this farewell billet smilingly. "He was really a nice boy," she said, "shy and stifl", you know, but of good 'stuff'. Y'ou would have liked him, Ned." So, with an nnconscins heart on shore, and a sad and sore one at sea, ended the brief and tragic ro mance of the "Hauled Mealer."

OARRAWAV I have given heretofore an im periect sketch of this city as a man ufacturing and agricultural center. Now I propose to consider it as a commercial center. Situated at the contbicm e of the Neuse and Trent rivers, being the largest city or town between Raleigli and the ocean, it is ne cessarily the center of a huge por tion of business from the surround ing counties. A good and profit able trade is enjoyed by her.- mer chants from Bealtlbrt, Pitt, Green, Lenoir. .Jones, Onslow, Carteret, Dare, Hyde and Pamlico counties, and by the extension of the Mid land railway into Johnson a por tion of business from that and Wayne are hoped to be recaptured I say 'recaptured because it was once held by means of the water transportat ion, and lost by means of its failure. The names of pro minent men of Johnston ami Way ne, were once familiar iu the business houses and banking institution of New Berne, and wit h proper energy may be again. New Berne occupies a decidedly advantageous geographical posit ion as will strike au one who in iv ca lamine the map of North Carolina, j Water communication with nearly j every county mentioned above, the i cheapest and most convenient to shippers, which supplemented by railroad and endurable dirt roads leading to the interior oi the pio dncing sections, furnishes means of t ransit , for merchandise from and produce to the city almost as varied as the articles to be transmu ted. The tide water trade of the cit, is by no means an inconsiderable one, aud is affected by neither Hoods nor drouth, but governed by the will of the craftsmen, subject only to a slight regard to wind and tides.

Hill A i p s Philosophy. It don't pay to get mad about auj thing, xnich less politics. Getting mad c heats a man out of Ins time.' He can lose a day r t days or 'even' a week, thinking about it and' fretting over it, and that interferes with his busiuess aud deranges his digestion, ancl makes his family unhappy. He had better go dead for a while and i on.ic to life auiain. . Get ting mad is the poorest Way to gct even wiLh an enemy I ever tried. It don't pay worth a t ciii and always makes a man lose his own self-respect. Now a man may yet mad with himself being a fool and it will do him no harm. In fact, it may do hmhI, for it's a sign of repcnlcucr. 1 knew a young man to go to .church fair and the girls honey-fugled six dollars oiilof hitii and lie went home and undressed and tied one arm to the bed-post and whipped himself withe the other, and as he -c ut himself round the legs lie would say: -You go to au olher church fair! You let them girls fool you out of your 'money again! You pay ten cents for cery tool letter they stick at you! You ;ie half a 'dollar for a little dab of ice cream I'll learn you some sense, I will.' and as he talked to himself he kept the switch goimr lively, and would dunce up and down just like Icj was another fellow. Now that is a nood idea. When a man makes a fool of himself and goes a ripping around let him lie himselt' np and give himself a nood whij pint; sind then take a fresh Mart in the moiu'ng. If a man gets into a tight "hh anotl er man he might ac cnlent:ill nit hip)ed, and then every body ould h-:n of it, but if he whips himself all by himself it will do, more riood. aud nobody would ever know any Ihing about it. Atlanta Constitu tion. A 15oy Again. Sometimes an old man becomes a boy atMin, thohuirh too smart to drop into his second childhood. An illustration of (his pleasciit tendency was given, not many month since, by an old man, worth several million. He was in the habit of prowliug around the ollice of the insurance com pany in which he was a director. One morning, as he was thus investigating, he happened lo come across the d'nmer pall ot the ollh-e hoy. His curiosity led him to lake oil the coyer.
