MADGE'S COUSIX.
Madge was sitting upon the hearth
rug, pulling to pieces a white camellia
and excusing herself to her kind old
guardian by saying it was "only
Jack's."
My dear," said Mr. Selwyn, walk
ing up and down and slrokng his gray
beard in perplexity, " I want to talk to
yon about Jack."
"Oh! please, not now, Tapa Sel
wyn!" She called him Papa Selwyn
when she meant to be coaxiug, and that
was nearly always.
"But, my dear, that is all nonsense.
I must talk about Jack some time. Yes
terday it was, 4 Oh ! please don't my
head is aching;' and the day before,
Oh! ploase don't I wan't to go out
with Gerty.' Come, let us face this af
fair." And sitting in tho easy chair be
hind her hassock, he drew up on his
kntes the ljand that held the broken
llower and proceeded to lecture his un
manageable charge on the endless sub
ject of " Jack."
Madge was a charming charge for any
kind old man's heart to nave. No one
could look into her large gray eyes
without seeing tho great warm heart,
whose tale they told every moment; and
yet the bright quick glances and the
saucy set of the lips showed that Madge
had a. will of her own and wit and clev
erness enough to carry it through.
The lecture on Jack was the same as
many others had been. It consisted of
two parts, the first being devoted to
proving that she ought to throw her
own whims and pleasures aside, and as
a dutiful girl fulfill her dying father's re
quest and marry her cousin ; and the
second was a culogium on tho many
good qualities of Jack Hawkesbury.
44 Do, Mr. Selwyn," laughed Madge,
after he had been making out that even
Jack's awkwardness came from an over
plus of good nature; "do throw him at
Gerty's head as you throw him at mine
and I shall make him over to her, and
they will be happy for life."
Gerty was Mr. Selwyn 's own daugh
ter, antl at the mention of her name a
strange expression crossed his face,
which Madge could not read.
" Throw nim at Gerty's head! what
words you use, child!" he exclaimed,
his annoyance for a moment escaping
his control. "I wish you had half Ger
trude's good sense. You fancy Jack
thinks of her is that it? He is the
soul of honor, and as far as it depends
on him your father's word will be
kept."
"Oh! Papa Selwyn, don't be vexed
with me; I am so sorry!" and her face
was hidden on his large rough hands in
a burst of sorrow, quite childish in its
passing intensity.
44 Cheer up, my darling girl," he
said ; "you made a mistake that's all.
"Why, one of these days you will forget
poor Papa Selwyn altogether, when you
fall in love with your cousiu."
44 That I won't! "cried Madge, with
all the strength of her hot heart.
All her life, even so far back as her
childhood, she had dreaded the fate that
bound her to marry her cousin. When
Jack Hawkesbury c me on the scene
and stayed on visits at the house, she
disliked and ridiculed him without mer
cy. Another, one like fair-haired Ger
trude for instance, might have accepted
the inevitable aud been happy; but
Madge's active and independent nature
made her run against fate. And now
there was only one month left before
her twenty-first birthday and the be
trothal. Often she told Gertrude she
wished he would go home and stay
there; and Gertrude would only laugh,
with a deeper tinge of color on her fair
The girls went out but little, an ar
rangement against which Madge often
rebelled, believing it was in some way
connected with the safe management of
the marriage with her cousin. But
there were two pleasures in prospect
now, an afternoon's boating with Jack
iticI a friend of his and Gertrude, and a
party that the Ponsoby-Joneses were
going TjOglvejtu wmi; u iuo jcirijii.iAiu
were sure to be invited. First came
boating. Ah! that ever-memorable day
how many years it would take to make
Madge forget it! There were four in
the boat that passed, with the measured
beat and ripple of Jack's pair of sculls,

thinking in her quiet, easy-going way.
Madge, bright with excitement, was
talking not with Jack, but with the
dark-bearded, travel-bronzed man who
was resting from his turn at the scull3
He was charmed with the war she chat-
ted and listened to his tales of half the
world, with a refreshing absence of self-
consciousness. What would he have said
if he had known the thought that strove
for entrance into her heart? On! if
Jack awkward, blundering, good-
natured Jack could be changed into
this stranger that she called timidly Mr.
ruzauan, and Jack and her guardian
had (rrpoti1 nt. tho limian ng Tlorhorl f
At last there was a pause in the talk.
She gave a deep sigh, prompted by a sad
longing to do right, a vague fear, a first
suspicion of tho change that was coming
over her impetuous heart.
"Are you cold, Madge?" asked Jack,
pulling away and bending to his strong
stroke. " Keep 3our shawl well about
your shoulders. And, my dear girl,
look to vour steering. You have been
sending the boat into curves like a cork -
screw only I did not want to disturb
your tele a-'cte."
Poor Cousin Jack! She drew the
white shawl closely round her, chilled
not by the wind but by a sudden pang
of remorse, the foundation of which was
very small, but enough to trouble her
peace.
What need to tell the inner history of
Madge's life during the next few weeks?
More and more she longed for freedom.
1'itzallan was staying in'the neighbor
hood and was frequently at the house,
and in the thousand little incidents of
every-day life she knew he cared for her,
and honest Jack grew yet more distaste
ful in her sight.
In duo time came the second promised
pleasure. The family that distinguish
ed the name of Jone3 by the prefix of
ronsonby gave their party. Madge was
in her glory that night. One looker-on
called her charming; another, the moth
er of fair daughters, admitted her ex
pression was charming, but voted her
features plain. Mrs. I'onsonby-Jones,
weighed down with bright-colored
silk and jewelry, said in her
finest tone that" Mr. Selwyn's
ward would be quite a femme
iVcsprit. Madge had no lack of society,
but she kept a place in the conversation
for Jack Hawkesbury, and her love of
mischief was gratified to the full by his
making of it what he called "a hawible
muddle." But the trivial triumphs and
pleasures of the night were long forgot
ten by Madge before she lost one
remembrance of a scene that passed in
the conservatory, where the music was
hushed by heavy curtains, and there was
only the soft light of a few dim lamps
among the masses of blossoms and dark
green leaves. She had lost the llower
from her hair one of her lavorite camel
liasas she said " with a darling bud,"
and Fitzallan had promisee, with Pou-sonby-Jones's
permission, to get her
another with a darling bud too. Sho
had placed his gift in bar hair, and she
sat near the dewy glass, saying it was
cool there and she would rest. Fitzullan
siood at a little distance, penknife in
hand still, swinging carelessly tho fan
like leaf of a dwarf palm.
44 If this were neaier, I could fan
you," he said.
44 Thank you; I am tired rather than
hot."
Never in her life before had Madge
been so serious vr so troubled as she
was now, in the s": ft light among the
cool plants, within sound of the half
hushed music.
44 Will j'ou do me a favor?" sho in
quired, raising the gray eyes that shone
for a moment with liquid brightness.
44 You have only to name it 1 am at
your service."
His manner, unromantic to a studied
degree, made her feel all the more safe
in taking heart to speak, while she gave
him at the same timo in generous meas
ure that most precious offering to which
every noble-hearted man entitles him
self a woman's respect.
44 1 have seemed very happy to-night,
Mr. Fitzallen," she began in a quiet,
low one, the torn leaf trembling in her
hand and the color dying out of her
face, "but I am in great trouble."
44 Indeed. I am sorry to hear it."
He drew a little nearer, listening atten
tively and helping her now and again
by a word of encouragment.
Her story was a simple one. She was
to bo married next month to her cousin,
Mr. Hawkesbury. She had dreaded it
all her life, but itwas her fate. And
then taking courage from the respectful
aud almost paternal demeanor of her
listener she made tho frank confession
that sho disliked her cousin just because
she was forced to marry him ; and to
this she added such a child-like entreaty
not to bo thought "too bad," that it
must have required more than ordinary
self-control for Fitzallen not to say
something that would have allowed the
scone to become a tender one; bst this
he seemed determined to avoid, and so
in her simple way was the sadly per
plexed girl that was pouring out her
hear's trouble to him.
44 Will you speak for me to Mr. F el
wyn," she said,"asyou are an old friend
of hisP I can not reason as men do, but
I want you to try if there is any way of
release for me. Pray forgive me if I
am wrong in asking your interference,
but I am very wretched" here came a
burst of tears that must have tried the
listener sorely " and I myself have so
often spoken to Mr. Selwyn, and it is of
no use. He always says my father's
will must be carried out; and oh! how
I wish I could do it."
44 It must be done, if possible," Fitz
allan said. " But it would not be your
father's will to mar the happiness of
your sweet life or to put you in bond
age." 44 O! if Mr. Selwyn would only speak
like that," said tho girl sadly.
44 Well, I shall have atalk with him,"
said Fitzallan, " and do my best for
you happiness, though I would be sor
ry to injure Hawkesbury's prospects.
Let us go back now; there is a new
piece beginning. That is one of Rubin
stein's, i3 it not? I need not say you
have done me a favor in granting me
your confidence."
With that he drew aside the heavy
curtains, and they returned to the daz
zling light an b'ewildering music and
movement of the ball room.
Alter that night Madge waited in anx
iety to hear the result of Fitzallan's
parley with her guardian. Three days
passed and a note came from him, only
a iew wurus, aajiug mac ne naa suc
ceeded at least so far as to win a prom
ise that the matter should be considered.
But Madge saw little good coming of
Mr. Selwyn's " considering " what
seemed to be decided irrevocably long
ago.
At last it was the eve of her birth-
day; to-morrow would be the dreaded
alon;
day, and that very morning Mr. Selwyn
bad said to her gravely, but tenderly:

might not be able to disclose all her
troub'es, " I want to tell you Mjmething,
and you won't be angry, will you, uo
matter what it is?"
He took her face between hi hand.-',
, and the lire llasbcd up and showed him
how earnest it was.
" I am quite sure," he said, "nothing

love with my second daughter as a poor
old fellow like me can be. Why, child,
I am under a cloud all day because to
morrow as soon as to-morrow I can
be Papa Selwyn no more, and Madge
will be thinking about nobody but her
cousin."
"No, indeed!" cried Madge impetu
ously, " you will be Papa Selwyn al
ways always; and I don't care for my
cousin a bit."
But her guardian shook his head
gravely.
44 My dear, 3'ou will marry jour
cousin."
The firelight had died down low, and
Madge had courage enough to blurt out
withan effort the few words :
44 1 can't marry Jack, because I ought
to love my husband, and I can never
care enough for him. Or, if I must be
engaged to him to-morrow" here there
was a great sob " Mr. Fitzallan is very
good and kind, and I don't want to hurt
him but but he must go away."
Her head sank upon hi3 kuees with
the great effort of that request.
"My poor child," he said, "1 know
your secret. Bravely said! my little
Madge, my bonny girl! You have had
tho truth out and done nobly. You arc
worthy of the man that is to have j'ou,
and that is saying a good deal." Then
raising her head gently, he bade her
listen, for ho was going to tell a secret
in return for hers. When she heard it
she waited with wide, wondering eyes
while he told it a second time, for she
could not believe in her joy. "As you
know, Madge," he began, "most peo
ple in this world have more cousins
than one." And then he went on to
explain to her that Herbert Fitzallan was
a very distant cousin and that it was
to him her father wished her to be mar
ried. Fitzallcu's father had been the
companion of his labors and Herbert
himself had been loved by the dying
man as a son, for Herbert was 20 when
little Madge was an orphaned baby of
four. "You ask what about Jack,
then?" said the old man. "That was
my clever trick upon Madge. 1 never
said you were to marry Jack. I told
j'ou of your father's wish. I brought ,
.lack here, the only cousin you knew;
anu 1 praised ms good qualities wuicn
are fine enough, I can tell jou, and ap
preciated by a young lady not far from
here. I knew that wayward heart of
yours, and I knew that a woman should
not marry without real love, and a great
store of it, too. So I left my darling
open to the idea that Jack was to be the
lucky fellow; and she did just what I
and all sensible folks expected almost
hated Jack and her doom. Then I took
care that the man you were meant for
who, my dear, has the best and truest
heart in the world should come in the
way just at the right time and show an
interest in you. So have I not succeed
ed and made my Madge choose her
father's choice with her own free heart
and will? As for Fitzallan, he is all
impatience for to morrow, and he would
have told you the secret at that ball the
other night, but he had promised me
never to disclose it till we were quite
sure of success. Well, are you happy
now, Madge""
4 My dear, good second father! How
can I love you enough?" was all she
could say when she felt his arms round
her in that moment of fulfilled desires,
and his lips pressed to her forehead in
fatherly affectionnow that his long solic
itude wa-i at an end and his hard task
well done.
That very night Madge, scarcely able
to realize her joy, was betrothed to Her
bert Fitzallan, who, when once the
secret was disclosed, would not wait
another hour.
44 Have I not waited years?" he said.
"All my time abroad I was waiting,
and then I came back and I found my
Madge more than ever I had dared to
hope."
But Madge in her new freedom did
not forget poor Jack. Indeed she was
almost in trouble about her unkindness
to him when she heard that he had been
only playing a part, bearing all her
teasing, and being purposely ungracious
whenever she grew kind, fiut Gertrude
consoled her effectually on that score by
telling another secret "after her kiss of
congratulation.
44 Jack was indeed doing his best to
carry out the plan," she said; "and he
was often grieved about you ; but, dear
Madge, you must congratulate us now
not me, but us. Jack and I made it up
between us months ago, and wo had
many a quiet laugh about you."
So Madge herself accepted the ring
and wore her golden fetters by her own
free will after all; nor was there ever a
happier or more willing captive. As
for Fitzallan, if ho was not another Ar
thur, as the girl's fancy had prompted
her to call him, he was " blameless" as
the Prince of the " Idyls," and far more
blesl; and if he reigned over no realm
ho was at least king of one brave and
tender heart a kingdom wide enough
to satisfy his desires and a prize which
time Droved to be well worth his years
of waiting. CasscWs Magazine.

Perhaps one of the most appropriate
uses of an old fruit-can that can be de

growth of new fruit to fill new cans.
This is done in the following manner:
The can is pierced with one or more
pin-holes, and then sunk in the earth
near the roots of the strawberry, or to
mato, or other plants. The pin-holes
are to be of such size that when the can
is filled with water the fluid can only
escape into the ground very slowly.
Thus a quart can, properly arranged,
will extend its irrigation to the plant
through a period of several days; the
can is then refilled. Practical trials of
this method of irrigation leave no doubt
of its success. Plants thus watered
flourish and yield the most bounteous
returns throughout the longest droughts.
In all warm localities, where water is
scarce, the planting of old fruit-cans, as
here indicated, will be found profitable
as a regular gardening operation.

How to Kdp Moths A tray. Fold
your things, sprinkling a little dry caTn-
phor in botwecu. 'I hen sew thorn up tri
bag.-s made ol some strong material,
containing no wool whatever; linen, of
course, is excellent, but common bed
ticking answers very well. Tho bags
should be stitched very e!oely, best by
machine, and leaving not tho smallest
opening anywhere. This keeps the goods
perfectly safe. You need never u&o any
other precaution, even for furs, but you
must, of course, make fcuro that the'
moths have had no chance to lay thoir
eggs in tho things before the' are '
packed. !
Gold Cuke. Lino the cake-pans with
buttered paper. Sift 1 tcaspoonful ol '
baking-powder, and 1 saltspoon of nalt,
with 1 t up of flour. Beat 2 ounces of
butter, h pound of granulated sugar to
a cream. Add to them by degrees i of ,
a cup of milk, and 1 cup of flour, and j
beat the mixture smooth with an egg-'
whip. Beat the yelks of G eggs to a ,
cream, and stir them into the above in- f
gredients. Stir in the cup of flour which
has been sifted with the salt and baking-'
powder, lltvor tho batter with vanilla ?
extract, put it quickly into the baking
pan, and bake the cake in rather a mod- j
erate oven. To test the cake, run a
clean broom-splint into its center; if it ;
is done, the splint will come out clean.
When it is done, turn it quickly out of j
the pan and let it cool.
Beef a la Mode. Cat 2 pounds of rump
steak in pieces 1 inch thick, 2 inches
wide, and -1 inches long; lay tho pieces
flat on the table and reason them with
pepper, salt, and powdered thyme.
Slice i pound salt pork thin, and lay a
slice on each piece of meat, roll up each
piece compactly, and tie with a cord. '
Put the trimmings of meat and scraps ,'
of pork in tho bottom of a saucepan, lay t
tho rolls on them, and put them over the
lire to brown. When the meat is brown
stir in a spoonful of flour and let it sim
mer until tender, about one hour. Mean
time pare the vegetables, cut them in
small, oven dice, or olives; wash them,
boil them until tender in boiling water
and salt; drain them and lay them in
cold water to retain their color. When
the meat is done, lay it on a hot dish,
in an even pile, and keep it hot while
the vegetables can be drained out of the
cold water and warmed in tho gravy.
Then arrange them neatly around the
meat, pour the gravy over the meat
without slopping it around the dish, and
serve it hot.
Swiss Pudding will Cream Fawc
Sift together $ pound of flour, 1 heap
ing tcaspoonful of baking-powder, and
I of salt; rub together 1 ounces of
granulated sugar and 2 ounces of butter,
and when they arc well mixed so as to
be granular, but not creamy, add the
flour gradually, until it Hall used.
Make a hollow in the middle of thea
flour, put into it 1 egg, h a teaspoonful
of lemon flavoring, and a i pint of milk.
Mix to a smooth paste, put into a well
buttered and floured mold, and set this '
into a large pot of boiling water.cnough
to cover two-thirds up the sido of the
mold ; steam the pudding of an hour,
or until a broom splint can be run into
it without finding the pudding sticking
to the splint. Turn the pudding out of
the mold and send to the table with the
following sauce : Stir together over the
fire 1 ounce each of flour and butter. '
As soon as they aro smooth, pour into
them h a pint of boiling milk, add 2
ounces of sugar and $ a tcaspoonful of
lemon flavoring, and use with the pud
ding as soon as it boils up. This
makes a very nice pudding for Sunday
dinner.

On the arrival of the packet Gray
Eagle from Louisville yesterday Officer
Knapkc stepped on board and arretted
what many people supposed to be a
slight but well-built and. good looking
boy. He started with his prisoner for
Police Headquarters, and wa3 soon
followed by a large crowed of persons,
it having leaked out that the person
under arrest was not a boy, but a wo
man in male apparel. The prisoner
was first taken before 'Squire llobcrts,
but as no charge had been preferred
that official could take no action. ,
Officer Knapke then took his charge to
the office of the Chief of Police, where "
Captain Newitt succeeded after a brief
coversation, in getting the woman, for
such she proved to be, to stale that her
name was Frances St. John. She said '
that she was twenty-three years of age
and was born in Ireland , that she had
lived in this country for thirteen yeara,
and had been wearing male apparel for
about three weeks. She stated further '
that she boarded the packet at Leaven
worth, Ind., and had paid her fare to
Henderson. There she said she intend
ed taking a steamer for New Orleans,
and that her ultimate destination was
Florida. All though questioned pretty
closely, she refused to give her reasons
for donning men's clothing or for going
to Florida. She had $14 in money in
her possesion, and with, a portion of
this Captain Newitt last evening pur-
chased clothing for her which will bet
more appropriate to her sex. She was
locked up at police headquarters last
night, and will be allowed to go her
way this morning. Etamville Journal.
