Adroitness in Treading
On the Bashful
Sir Arthur Helps believed tliM
never siiur the worl.l bewail did two
lovers make love in exactly tlie same
way as any other two lovers. Whether
he is right is equally beyond proof of
disproof. Certainly no question has
been put in a variety of ways as the
most momentous one a man can ask or
a woman answer ; how it is put de
pending upon time, place, circum
stances, and the temperament of the
A MARRIAGE WITH A GENEROUS MO
TIVE. A curious marriage proposed was
made by a reverend bachelor who en
tered tho matrimonial state on his
death-bed. "When iu his seventy
third year the minister had a severe
attack of paralysis, which left him so
weak nnd helpless tha feeling that
his end was not far distant, ho pro
ceeded to put Ids worldly affairs in
order, llis parish being au exceeding
ly small one, and having been always
a most liberal man, he had not much
money to leave, which circumstances,
had it not been for one reason, he
would not have minded.
For the last twenty years he had
had a3 housekeeper, a steady, sensible
woman, who had served him honestly,
tended him like a daughter during his
illness, and for whom he had quite a
fatherly regard. It was on her ac
count that he mourned his property.
It would have been a matter tur tnank
lulncss could he have left her as much
as would have supported her comfort
ably and respectably in her old age
6he was now about " forty-five. Alter
weighing ami considering the matter
for some weeks in every possible light,
a way out of the difficulty suddenly
flashed upon hint ; and, knowing the
precarious state of his health, he re
solved to execute his purposes at once.
He called his housekeeper, and when
she entered the room he made her sit
down; and after telling her how anx
ious and sorrowtul ho had been be
cause he had no money to leave her,
he continued :
Ot courso you are aware that there
is a minister's widows' Itmd, so that if
the husband dies, his wife will have
au annuity during her life. Xow,sup
poaing you marry me, and although I
uni almost iu at death's door, you will
be amply provided for ju the future.
"Will you consent to this?"
".Master, dear, you must be doting I
"What would people say?"
1 was never moio serious iu my
life, Mary ; and 1 am sure people will
say we have both tic ted wisely iu the
matter. Take lid the evening to think
it over, and then bring mo your au
swer." In the evening Mary told him she
"would take him." So, ten days after
they were married, and three days
later the good old man died ; but his
widow still enjoyed her share of the
A SOLDIER'S PROPOSAL.
A young officer was dancing in a set
of lancers in a crowde I drawing-room
with an extremely pretty girl, to
whom he made himself most agree
able After the dance was over, ho
took her to a chair, and seating him
self beside her, began to mourn his
"It is exceedingly easy to remedy
that," said she.
"I don't think so at all ; in fact, I do
not know a girl who would marry
She laughed .and replied :
"Just go and ask some one here to
night, and I venture to say you will
be accepted by the lirst."
"Ahl I am not so sure about that.
But will you take me?"
And a lew months later they were

Dixon came, up to him she reined in
her horse, stopped, and called out;

He raised his hat and replied :

Mr. Smith, coining all the way from
Australia on the lookout for a wife,
saw a young governess on - board a
Glasgow steamer, whom, from her
kiuUuess and attention to some chil
dren under her charge, lie fancied
would suit him. So he weut and in
troduced himself, and taking a seat
beside her, said :
"I am tiity-threo years of age; have
an income of a thousand dollars a year;
am a toial abstainer from intoxicating
drink : have a good house near Mel
bourne, and all I want is a good wife
to complete my possessions. "Would
you mind taking me?"
She quietly replied:
"I have no objections."
Aud a lew uays later they were
NOT TO BE FOILED.
A young man of about twenty-seven
years of age, with neither money nor
the prospect of getting anv, came to
the conclusion that the best thing he
could do would be to marry a "rich
wife" and live on her money. Among
his many acquaintances was a widow
lady of about twice his age, with three
children, but with a steady income of
two thousand a year. Her he resolved
to marry, and, in order to cultivate her
friendship, he took her presents of
tlo'weis and fruit, and gave the chil
tiren Looks aud rides on his horse.
The lady kindly received his attentions
gave hiin the liberty of her house,
and treated him like a younger broth
er in every respect. The young fel
low, interpreting her kindness to suit
himself, an 1 believing he had nothing
to do but ask her, ventured one even
ing on tho subject in the following
"I wonder very much why you
don't remarry, Mrs. L ."
"Simply because no one wants a
willow with three children."
"I know, one who would be proud
to have you and your dear children,"
said the wooer, feeling the worst was
"Indeed, you are most flattering this
"Xo; I am mot flattering. I love
you, and would be proud to be your
She looked coldly on him; tlieu re
"You mean you would bo proud to
own my money, sir. I have been vast
ly deceived iu you." Then pointing
to the door, she continue i : "Leavo
my house; an I while I live never
dare to re-enter it."
QUAINT AND LUDICROUS PROPOSALS.
"When Lord Strangford sat down to
criticise a book of travels bv Miss
Beaufort, ho little dreamed that be
fore long he would write to the young
authoress ; "I was thinking tho other
day about a communication from the
Emperor Akbar to the King of Portu
gal, which contained a request for
copies of the holy book of the Chris
tian?, and in which the following sen
tence occurs: 'In the world of hu
manity, which is the mirror and
reflection of tho world of God, there
is nothing equal to love or compara
ble to human affection.' For many
years I have felt and known this,
though I never said it till to-day to
any one. When you next write,
please give me the possessive pronoun
of titc iirst person."
Surely never was a declaration made
in quainter fashion, saving perhaps, by
the Scotch beadle, who led the manse
housemaid to tho churchyard, and
pointing with his finger, stammered:
"My folk lie there, Mary; wad ye
like to lie there?" Or the lugubri
ously humorous Irish lover who took
his girl to seethe family vault, aud
then aud there asked her if she would
like to lay her bones beside his bones.
Louise de Suvoie popped the ques
tion to Bourbon, but had to take ".No"
lor her answer, the constable curtly
declaring that the disparity of years
between them, and his own feelings,
rendered the union impossible.
A lady's proposal.
If ladies sin against propriety in
taking the initative, they can hardly
be blamed for bringing a shilly-shallying
or over-bashful lover to point,
when a good opportunity presents
itself. Such au opportunity sufficed
to end what had been a somewhat te
dious courtship. The young man,
paying his usual evening visit, asked
his lady love how she got along with
-Nicely," replied she. "I'm improv
ing wonderfully, and make splendid
"Can vou ?" said tho young fellow,
isnorautly rushing on to his fate.
""What kind do you like best?"
"I like one made with flour and sug
ar, with lots of raisin, currants aud
citrons, and beautitully frosted on the
top," responded she.
Why, that's a wedding enko I" cried
"I meant wedding," said she : and
there was nothing left for him to say
he meant weddiug, too.
WOMEN FIND A WAy.
Equally cleverly cornered was tho
Western man whose girl told him she
was a mind reader; whereupon ho
naturally inquired if she could read
what was in his mind, eliciting for
"O, yes! You havo it in your mind
to ask me to be your wife; but you
are just a littlo scared at tho idea."
It is plain the notion did not scare
her any more than it did the Gallo
way girl, who, when Jack, coming in
to the kitchen whilo sho was prepar
ing breakfast, said: "I tlnufc I'll
marry ye, Jean !" answered ;
"I would be mnckle oblige! to yo
if yo would!" and so concluded tho
bargain, not even stipulating like an
other ready lassio on accepting as sud
den an oiler :
"But ye mauni gie me my dues o
conrtin' for a' that, Jamie."
The right of courtship is ono out of
which no woman ought to allow her-"
self to bo defrauded.
PROPOSING BX PKOXV
Little as faintheartedness in a lover
may be to the liking of a fair lady, it
is suflicicntly flattering to bo condon
ed; hut when any Caleb in search of
a wife chooses to sue by delegate, ha
assuredly deserves to lail iguomiu
iously. Love is not to bo won by an
attorney, and oftentimes tho attorney
has thrown his client overboard and
can-lid off the prize himself, as hap
pened when William Grimtn weut
courting in his brother's behalf.
Hooker escaped that risk by leaving
everything, even tho selection of the
lady, to Mrs. Churchman, who found
him a wife and achieved a son-in-law
herself at the same time.
Proposing by proxy is the rule,
not the exception in Greenland.
Time was when tho Grcenlanders won
their wives by capture; but since
their conversion by Danish mission
aries, they have become the tamest of
wooers. Now a candidate for the
holy state goes to a missionary, and
tells him he want3 a wife.
"Whom?" asks tho missionary, and
learns the woman's name.
Sometimes the man answers :
"Yes, she is not unwilling ; but thou
Usually the answer is "Xo."
"Why "have you not asked her?" in
quires the missionary
"It is difficult ; girls arc prudish;
thou must speak to her."
Accepting the office, the good man
sends for the girl, and after a little
conversation, says :
"I think it is time to have thee mar
ried." The girl declares she has no mind to
"That is a pity," says the mission
ary. "I had a suitor for thee."
Of course the damsel is curious
enough to want to know who tho
suitor may be, and of courso her
curiosity is sat is lied.
"He is good for nothing," sho ex
claims, with a toss of the head. "I
wont have him."
"But," tho go-between urges, "ho is
a good provider ; he throws his har
poon with skill, and, moreover, ho
Still pretending to be obdurate, the
girl answers that she will not consent
to tho match.
"Well, well, I will not force thee;
I shall soon find a w4fe for such a
clever fellow," says the missionary,
making believe there is an end to the
The girl does not go. She stands
silent for a littlo while, then in a low
voice 6ighs out :
"Just as thou wilt have it."
"Oh ; it is as thou wilt ; I'll not per
suade thee," replies the clergyman.
Then, with a deep groan, the maid
en says "yes," and tho matter is set
tled. A CANDLE FR0P0SAL.
Dumb declarations are in vogue too
among the Boers ot South Africa. Mr.
Anthony Trollope tells us that when
a young Boer goes in quest of a wife
he puts on his best clothes, sticks a
feather in his cap, provides himself
"With a bottle of sugar plums and a
candle a wax one if possible mounts
his horse, rides to tho house holding
the young woman he would honor,
hangs the rein3 on tho gate, dismounts
and enters. To mako the point quite
clear, however, he offers a candle to
tha daughter of the house. If she
takes it, it is lighted; the mother
sticks a pin in tho candle to show
how Jong the young people may re
main together without iutcrruxjtion,
and she and everybody else retire.
The Domestic Uonthly for August.
It might not seem unnatural if the
sultry weather of late July and early
August had the effect of diminishing
the fashion intelligence of the world,
but it is evident from the pages of the
Domestic Monthly that nothing is far
ther from the mind of the fair sex than
the intention of forgetting, simply be
cause the thermometer is in the nine
ties, the necessity of attending to the
demands of the toilette.
A large variety of ladies' and chil
dren's costumes and garments is pre
sented, with full and precise descrip
tions and instructions as to making
them up in light summer fat Tics and
other material. The remainder of the
fashian department is divided into fall
articles, seasonable fabrics, trimmings,
shoes and slippers, millinery, coiffures,
lingerie, fancy and art needlework, &c,
nearly all of them fully illustrated.
The literary department maintains
its standard of excellent ' family read
ing. The present serial by Ellis Con
way will be followed by a singularly
fascinating narrative in two parts by
Mary Ainge De Vere. This author
contributes a charming poem to the
present number. There is also a poem
and a story by Eben E. Iiexford. an in
teresting Art Paper by Mrs. Merighi,
and a striking paper on Secrets, which
will be read with sspecial interest by
all who think it possible to keep their
own counsel in this age f progress.
The Domestic Monthly is published
by Blake & Co., corner Broadway and
Fourteenth St., New York, at 31.50 a
year, inclusive of pattern premium.
Specimen copies 15 cents.
