Mj Future Bride.
I'll tell ou of my ureethcarf,
A queVn anions the girls ;
Her eye they shine like Jupiter,
Her teeth are just like pearls.
She has a very saucy little mouth,
A tiny, snovv-w Lite hand ;
A prettv little well-shaped foot
Oil, she's the loveliest in the land.
Now on her little Hu:rer
There is a golden ring,
And there's soon to be a wedding
Which joy to me will brinj.
Thon canst not sing', poor bird, thy mate Is dead
And all day Ioiik thy sittest on thy nest.
In vol-tless sorrow, while thy jfoutle bead
Droops wearily upon thy downy breast.
Tlioiiih all around thee show'rs of apple bloom
In fragrant petal, flutter far and wide.
On winds, which, heavy with the sweet per"
Seem whisp'rinu word of comfort, as they
Through eaUIny lo thee, from the flow'ry bough.
Thy tuneful friends essay ihlne heart, to cheer
With richest melody, still, even, thou
Turn'st heart-sick, to their notes a heedless
And through the shadows o'er the landscape
And In the distant west the sun sinks low,
Thon set k'et no food, nor ever seemM to feel
Aiitflit. save that one unalterable woo.
Ah, me ! oar bird, I c.;n not chide thee now.
That here to grier thou yield'st thus a prey,
Since cruel anguish, greater Xar than thou
.Citust ever feel, is In my heart to-day.
Something has left my life that mads me glad
A glance, a einile, a eluiaeful ifmtle tone
The want of which, to-day, hath made me sad,
Au.l, midst the beauty, left mu cold and lone
Though round my path Danus Fortune seems to
Her choicest favors with a lavish ban I,
And life's r.iie flow'isiu woudious beauty prow
And briuh'Jy blossom ueutli her snillo so
Frhin ev'ry proffer'd pood I Coldly turn,
And sadiy muse, and nurse my idle pain ;

of Mcnyiioi t, w;us n crockery-ware store,

ni.ii litbison. For many ycurs tliis i-rock-cry
sto'.e liatl been liiere, with tlu rctit
jiu licr liaiiing in front for a sign;iu
uetd, when -Mr. lluIsoi) first opened tlie
store, some forty years previous, lie was
i ni lo a young man, a:ul tlie fign over liis
duor v aa br.gut uml liaii iaoinc; lut noxv
his exe.s had jjiown liim, mid the owner
whs i-allcd "Old Hudson ' by all the boys
and girls of the c'uy.
.Mr, Benjamin Hudson had grown rich
in his business, for he lnwl conducted it
all himself, and taken care that nothing
should be wa.-lcd or lost by neglect, lie
had made mistakes, t be s.ire, us every
man xvill make some blunders during a
a lifetime, but by skillful management
iie ijuickiy recovered from them, tjixty
lix'e years had begun to bend over .Mr.
Hudson's shoulders aud dim the bright
ness of his eye, and he found business
more irksome than it formerly had been.
"1 must haxe a partner," said he one
day to himself as lie sat before a cheerful
lire. ''I must have some one interested
in tiic business who is young aud active,
and xvill take the weignt oif my shouiders
for 1 do not care to no as 1 used to."'
.Now-, in .Mr. Hudson's employ were
two young men Herbert lijnd aud
(.'hiiiics Sehiuour. They had been with
him an eejual length of time, aud had per
formed their duties faithfudy and well."
Charles did his xvotk quick ly, and had
a sniiit xv ay about him tnat made people
think ho xvas greatly superior to HwriKrt,
who had more quiet demeanor and ac
complished quite as much without mak
ing a great sur about it.
-1 must have Herbeit or Charles for a
partner," soliloquized Mr. Hudson; "on
xxiiicli can I decide'' They both do very
xvell iu the s-tote, but I ou'ht to know
something of them out of the store, ami 1 j

come here in'tue morning and go away
at night; what becomes of them over
night, 1 know not, and yet I ought to
know. Neither of them have parents iu
the city; they live in some ol ihs numer
ous boarding houses, aud I hope are
steady and well behaved. I must sec
them in their homes and then decide
which shall be my partner.
The next day 3! r. Hudson ascertained
the boarding places of hisciciks. xvith

and after supper that evening his wife

Herbert's Ixiarding-houac was the near
er of the two, and here. Mr. Hudson stop
It was a neat-looking house, in a very
pleasant street. Mis. liuutin, the lauu
lady, opened the door when Mr. Hudson
"Does a young man named Herbert
Dond board here:'"
"He does. Walk in, sir, aud I will
call him," replied the woman.
"I'll go to his room, if you will show
me where it is,"' ausxvercd Mr. Hudson,
"I presume he is in itf"
"1 think so; he is seldom out iu the
evening. You can step up there if you
like, sir; go up txvo flights, and the first
door to the right is tlu one,' replied Mrs.
Mr, Hudson puffed up the stairs and
kuocked with his cam: at the designated
door. It xvas opened by Herbert, who
looked very much amazed when lie saw
his employer, and said:
"Why, Mr. Hudson, is anything the
matter in the store? Nothing happened
out of the way, I hope.'"
"No nothing nothing at all," said
Mr. Hudson walking in and taking a
chair. ! took a notion to call around
and see how you were this evening."
liond expressed himselt very glad to
sec his employer, aud wjiile he took Lis
hat ami cane, Mr. Hudson glanced around
tlie room. It was an attic room, with
dormer xviudoxvs; a good lire was burn
ing in ait open grate; a book-rack lilied
with books adorned one side of tlie room;
the cciitel of the lloor was occupied by a
taide on which xvcre xviiNng ina;erials.
"Vou look very cosy here, Herbert; but
why do vou have an attic room? Ale
there none you can have bcloxv stairs?"
"Oh, yes, sir; but this is a dollar a week
cheaper, and 1 have all the more nnncy
to send to my lather, replied Herbert.
"isn't your lather xvell oil';'" inquired
"Not very, sir; lie used to be pretty
rich, but his business xvas disiistious, and
he lost a ercat deal of money,"' said
"What do you tind to do evenings ?
Does not time hang very heavy f
"Oh, no, sir! 1 have hooks to read and
letters to write. To-night I am writing
Home; tliey want me to make litem a
visit, but 1 write that it is a pretty busy
time just noxv, but xxhcu it i.- over I ihad
ask you fur a few days' of absence,'" iiu
swi red Herbert.
"You shall have it willing," said Mr.
Hudson, ami then he mined: "Docs
Cliarles ever call upon youf
"No, sir. I have asked him to several
times, but lie Las never called."
"Are you contented here in this board
ing house f" inquired Mr. Hudson.
"It is a very good boarding house, and
Mrs. lSuntiu i-i xery kind; but 1 hare of
ten wished that 1 could live at home," an
swered Ilerbei t.
"Aud why can't you? lloxv far is it
from heref asked his employer.
"Twenty-live miles, sir; lather far to
travel every day, ami ihcu 1 can't afford
the expense,'' xvas Herbert's reply.
"What time could you reach the store
in the morning f"
"At half-past eight, sir.''
"And you would have to leave at what
hour in the afternoon?"
"At about half-past live, sir."
"Not very bad hours for the business.
Perhaps it can be arranged so that you
can live at home, Herbert I"
"Oli, 1 should like it so much if I could
I am so homesick here iu toe cily!" was
the clerk's reply.
"Well, I'll look into the matter, Her
bert. It seems a jdty that one who is so
fond of his home can't live there, in these
times of raiixvays, and fast traveling," said
Mr. Hudson, as lie arose to depart. Her
bert thanked him lor his visit, and said
it would please him to have Mr. Hudson
The oM g nf

tu the call, and said lo
"Noxv for Charles Sehmour. I hope I
shall find him as xvell occupied as Herbert
On his way to the house, which was
three or four streets distant. Mr. Hudson's
attention was attracted to three young
men, who were talking loudly and ac ting
in a rowdy manner, pushing each other
against the passers-by, ami making rude,
insulting remarks to them. It so happen
ed that Mr. Hudson wore a white hat; so
when these fellows passed him, they look
ed behind and said: "Oh! what a hat!
Who stole the doukcyi The man with
the white hat!" and similar impolite ob
servations. As they walked much faster
than he did, they were soon out of sight.
The boarding house was reached, the
bell, rang, aud Mr. Hudson admitted.
The servant said Sehmour xvas in, and
ushered him to the chamber dxr. Mr.
Hudson knocked and the door immedi
ately sxvung wide open, aud a voice ex
claimed, "W'ell, old felloxv, got along at
last, have you: We're all ready for you;
hare got tiie " Charles .Sehmour stopped
here, and his face turned suddenly pale
at seeing, instead of one of his boon com
panions, his venerable employer. It was
several seconds before he couid recover
his speech. "I beg yotti pardon, Mr.
Hudson, you must excuse me; 1 expected
a friend this evening, ami in the dim
light of the entry 1 thought you xvcre he.
Vi aik in, bir, aud sit down."
Mr. Hudson catered the room, and xvas
some xx hat surprised to see there the iden
tical three young men who had insulted
him on the street; they wire smoking
cigars, and had their feet elevated on tho
bureau, luantlepicce and bedstead. Mr.
Hudson saw at once toat he xvas iu con
fusion, uml Jsehniour's actions were pain
ful aud awkward, Nevertheless his em
ployer started a conversation, and had
ben there but a lew minutes when a foot
step was heatd on the stairs; the door
opened a little, and a bottle of champagne
came rolling across the floor, followed by
a round Dutch cheese, a bunch of cigais
aud t'.vo more bottles. Sehmour iooived
dreadfully distressed, but could no noth
ing. It was a fouitii lricnd, who had
beeu out after refieshnieut., and toiik
this facetitious mode of introducing them
into the chamber. Mr. Hudson tnouglu
it xvas time for him to go, so he took his
leave and returned to his heme.
Mr. Hudson was not long making up
his mind as to xxhich one of his clerks
would make the most faithful and cili
cient partner, and in less than a week it
was announced iu the papers that He rbert
Bond was a member of the firm of Ben
jamin Hudson Co. It xvas a happy
day for Herbert, mid it was not many
years before lie managed the whole busi
ness himself; and he became a wealthy
Charles Sehmour knew very well the
reason of Mr. Hudson's choice, and he al
ways had to regret having formed such
unprofitable acquaintances as were ;is
sembled ju his room that unlucky night.

Ekar Heiiald: Leadville still con
tinues to attract the seeker after
wealth, and its population now num
bers fully thirty thousaud souls. Tho
class that is now coming is formed
principally of men with means, who
are investing in soma of the numerous
"prospect holes" around heie. where
the original owners are not able to car
ry on the work of developing for hck
of means, anil are forced to s-l I p.u t for
a tithe of what it is worth. This ramp
has been Taunted as tlie place for poor
men to mine, and it is doubtless pre
ferable te fissure vein mine, but tliate
is not a paying mine anywhere near
here, that has not cost from a thous
and dollars up to establish the fart of
its paving finalities. Many a poor fel
low after working hard for along time
and spending his all for food, lias been
compelled to abandon his claim or else
sell half f it for a very small uiii,
and in many instances for a grub sialic
or in other words some man furnishes
him with food while be works fur an
interest, by which they are both doubt
less benefitted, but the perrentage is
largely in favor of the inonit d man.
Leadville is improving rapidly. New
buildings of a more substantial kind
are being daily erected. A large brick
Opera House is being erected which
when finished will be the Ingest and
finest ia the fctate, or in the entire
West. Fine reidtuces are being built
by mine owners and merchants, who
have sent for their families, thus ad
ding to the permanency and beauty of
the place. The First National Bank
has nearl3' completed a fine cut-stone
building, the proprietor of the Claren
don has just finished a fine brick block,
(the first brick building of any size
erected in Leadville, for we aro em
phatically a city of wood and cloth;
tents off all sizes, shapes and colors be
ing nearly as numerous as wwoden
buildings,) and tlu coimact has been
let for several more business blocks.
A short time ag Hie Court House, a
tine large wooden building, was set on
fire with tho intention, it is supposed,
ef destroying the records of the coun
ty, the building was partially destroyed
but frtuuateiy tlie records were all
saved. The County Commissioners
have since let the contract for a fine
largo building with fine proof vaults,
ou which work will commence next
The collection of taxes levied for
improvement purposes has been caus
ing as much trouble here as in I'latts
inouth, but the Leadville City Council
pursued a different course, to enforce
the payment thereof, from any I ever
heard of. At a regular meeting u re
solution was introduced to discharge
the police, firemen. Citv Clerk, street
Commissioner and in fact all citv ser
vants, leaving the town without any
government. After some discussions
this matter was laid over for a weok
for the purpose of giving the delin
quents one more chance to settle: up;
the Mayor and Council aiguin thai
they had been elected by the vctf .-t of
tlie people, and if the people would not
furnish the means for transacting
business they would bring that, mat
ter to a sudden close. During the week
the matter was discussed ami consid
ered by every one as it was evident the
Mayor and Council were determined,
and the result was that some twelve
thousand dollars of assessment xv:is
paid in. This action somewhat molli
fied the Council so at their next regu
lar meeting the old resolution with
drawn and a new one introduced, pass
ed, approved, and signed by the Mayor
making it unlawful for police to heip.
