YE MAftlEN OF TODAY.
1 took a flu de aleclo maid
To Hre the ocean roar and fret.
The only tiling that maiden said
U'uh, “My I l.’pw disagreeably wet!”
And when ujK)n Mont Blanc bhe gazed
Her soul knew not the slightest awe.
And by this comment I was dazed—
I “The cuteat tiling I ever saw!”
But when ! took her to the play—
j A play with laughs in every line—
Twiistlien I heard that maiden say,
“Now this, 1 think, is mighty fine!”
And when I wrote a rondeau light.
And in her white hand placed my rhyme.
She seemed to l>e overpowered quite.
And as she read it cried, “Sublime!”
-Harper’s Bazar, j
“Laura,” said Mr. Cyrus Merivale to
his wife as lie drew a close fitting pair
of kid gloves over his largo, fluffy fin
gers, "Jack Hoburton has been paying
our Catherine considerable attention of
late, and I shouldn’t be surprised if some
thing came of it.”
"1 hope so,” returned Mrs. Merivale, ■
languidly, “for he lias lots of money. !
“Oh, Hoburton is a bright young man |
and will make his mark yet, there is no
doubt about that, and he may be able to
help us out of our miserable debts.” said j
Kate had many admirers, but Jack j
Hoburton was the favorite. Jack was a !
steady young man, good looking, well
educated anti the possessor of a nest egg
that in the minds of Kate's worldly par
ents would be sure to hatch unbounded
The parents were gracious and paved
the way to an excellent understanding
between the young people, so the next
winter when Kate went away to board
ing school and Jack went to seek bis for
tune in the great west matters were emi
nently satisfactory ell around.
“Yes,” said Mr. Merivale to his daugh
ter. "Jack Hoburton will make a model
husband, one that will tend to elevate i
the family station. That's how it always j
should be. 1 would be very much pained
to have you marry nay one poorer than
"Why. papa, said Kate in reply, “1
:wn not gob ; to marry Jack because he
has a little money. 1 am going to marry
him because 1 love him."
“That’s right." laughed her father,
‘but the mo- v is a requisite that must
not be de-;.. .1. for without it love'
would be' a very tame affair indeed. If
Jack were ' iow you in worldly station,
tfjere would 1)3 a grotesqueness about
love that would soon destroy it. In mar
riage she so ;1 equilibrium should al-|
ways be maintained."
About two -ears after Jack’s engage
ment r > Kg: a;id a year previous to the
proposed celebration of the nuptials Mr. ;
Merivalo startled the bosom of his fain- ■
:ly one day by suddenly entering their .
midst greatly flustered anil perspiring
from every pore. i
He threw aims -if iuto a chair, and aft
er prolonged silence that nearly fright
ened the mother and daughter out of
their senses informed t hem that at last
.’ ‘the goal was in sight."
•What goal?” the}- cried.
• “At last." said he, “we shall rise to
.out proper sta: ion. Henceforth we have
*no need to envy Robertson. The cred
itors who liav dogged me for the past
110 years shall be relegated along with
mills marked paid' back to then- miserly
’level. In fine.” he added, “we are rich."
• 'Explain; pray explain," they gasped. [
It's the Arapahoe mine,” said he. ,
“We are worth a cool hundred thousand,
and people will think it a million.”
The news of Mr. Merivale’s sudden
acquisition of wealth spread rapidly,
and people exaggerated the reports, as
he had anticipated. New friends sprang
up on every side. Wherever Kate ap
peared sue was more than ever the cen
ter of attraction.
• Mr. Merivalo began to plan changes
;on a grand scale. A lot was purchased
'next to Robertson’s and preparations
•were made for the erection of a magnifi
• There were to be carriages, servants,
•graveled walks, horses, dogs, fountains

• One day. alter a long interview witn
taiw wife Mr. Merivale summoned
^Lite “I wish to talk with yon about j
;nhat lei low Hoburton,” said he. “You i
*.io not suppose, now, that he will try to
lliold you to the engagement, do you?” he j
* “What!” exclaimed the daughter, red- j
•dening: “do you mean that he should j
^forsake me because we have been fortu
* “1 mean,” returned the father more
;coolly, "that since our circumstances

pi late ourselves accordingly. My pnn
Ictnle is the same as I have always en
deavored to inculcate. No one should ;
‘ever marry below Ills or her station.
.Our station has risen, and those who
•were once our social equals are no longer
Jso. Personally, Hoburton is an estima

If Kate gave her father a look of scorn,
lit was lost to him. for lie continued with
out looking up:
“You have always been a dutiful
daughter, and I have implicit confidence
in your obeying my wishes. We have a
social status to maintain. It would be
dying in the face of Providence’ to dis
regard the advantages which our altered
circumstances present. This you would
bo doing were you to marry a poor
"Why, father,” exclaimed the daugh
:ter, "Mr. Hoburton is by no means poor.
,'Efe has, as you know, over $10,000, and
jwith the assistance that you might now
’afford ho could easily add to it.”
•Ah,” said her father, “yon forget
.that while he has $10,000 yon will have
•10 times that. He is altogether too
.many rounds in the ladder below you, |
.and the sooner he is informed of the
change the better for all concerned. No,
no,” said he, interrupting her as she was
about to continue the argument, “I can
never consent to the marriage. I should
commit a flagrant breach of duty were I,
to allow the equilibrium to be thus dis
turbed. Aftjr you have thought the
matter over candidly you will see that
my position is the only one tenable.”
The daughter sat for some time after
her father had left the room, over
whelmed with grief at his proposition.
Finally she gathered up sufficient cour
age to write to Jack, and in a wretched,
tear stained scrawl she confessed her fa
ther’s disapproval of the marriage.
While she was penning this letter, full
of endearments and protestations of con
stancy—constancy, she declared, that
would endure even if her father “should
acquire ten millions”—the paternal Om
ens was seated in his private office writ
ing a letter of a contrary sentiment.
Mr. Merivale wrote two letters, one to

Mr. Merivale arrived in Denver on a
Thursday afternoon and took apart
ments at a hotel.
Early in the evening, while inspecting
his person in the mirror after the com
pletion of Careful toilet, he was startled
by a knock upon the door.
He opened it and stepped back in un
feigned astonishment, for who should be
standing there but his once presumptive
son-in-law, young Jack Hoburton.
“I saw your name in the register,” said
Jack, "and have taken the liberty to seek
“Step in,” said Mr. Merivale, and with
cool pomposity he waved him to a chair.
“Now,” said he as he seated himself,
“my time is precious, 1 suppose you
wish to confer concerning your unfor
tunate relationship with my daughter,
but upon that point I have nothing more
to say than what I expressed in my let
ter. I have duties to perform as a par
ent that you will doubtless understand,
and 1 hope yon will not dwell upon a
point that must necessarily be painful
to us both.”
1 ilia call tor the purpose you sug
gest,” said Jack, “for 1 hoped that after
all the circumstances were made known
you might possibly not be so much op
posed to our union. In the first place,
you know. Kate and 1 love each other,
and, in the second place, I have acquired
sufficient property to maintain a wife.”
“Yes. yes, all that is true, no doubt,”
broke out Mr. Merivale, “but ‘sufficient'
is only a relative word. My daughter's
prospects are not what they were. I be

A frov; Merivale's
brow, and in ....e aim walked rapidly
up and down the room.
“The subject annoys me,” said he.
“and 1 must beg you to close this inter
view. I have always considered you a
promising young man. and if things
were different I would say, ‘Marry my
daughter and receive my blessing,’ but
as it is, never, and I must ask that the
matter end here.”
He opened the door and Jack took
leave—the perfect picture of a broken
spirited youth. When well into the hall,
however, he broke into an uproarious fit
The next morning, on repairing to the
office of the Arapahoe Mining company,
Mr. Merivale found the president absent
and took a seat in the reception room.
After he had waited for some time the
door suddenly opened, and Jack Hobur

sat for some time with eye and ear alter

“Mr. Merivale,” 6aid Hoburton, “you
are laboring under a mistake. This is
my place of business. I had no intention
of following you, although, to be sure, I
expected to meet you here in accordance
with your letter of last week. Here it is
now,” said he, picking out a bit of cor
respondence from a pigeonhole.
“D-do you mean to say that you are
Joel C. Hoburton, president of the Ara
pahoe Mining company?” cried Mr. Meri
“Why, yes,” replied Mr. Hoburton.
Though somewhat chagrined, Mr.
Merivale made no further opposition,
and the nuptials were finally celebrated
amid all the pomp and dignity apposite
to such an occasion.—Exchange.
The great conquerors of the world who
have plunged their nations into cruel
wars for the sake of their own glory and
aggrandizement were pre-eminently the
heroes of a past age, but we are grad
ually learning that the true hero of his
country is the man who seeks her best
welfare, who defends her rights and con
sults her interests, and who for this great
purpose is ready to take praise or blame,
to govern or to forbear, to live or to die.
Our own Washington and Lincoln were
men of this stamp, and we are justly
prijud to have them head the list of our
country’s heroes.—Philadelphia Ledger.

There is nothing in a name, but in a
bottle of Wisdom’s Robertine there is a
world of satisfaction to ladies of taste
and refinement. It whitens and
beautifies the skin without the injurious
effects that attend the use of most cos
metics. The only visible evidence of
its use is abcautiful, clear and healthful
complexion. Every lady using it recom
mends it to her friends.
Every time a stingy man looks at a
dollar it shrinks his heart.
Is the most delightful article ever pro
duced for beautifying and preserving
the complexion. Not only removes
blemishes but leaves the skin as soft as
velvet and as fresh looking as a morn
ing glory. Used and endorsed by the
elite of society and the stage, leading
physicians say it is not only harmless
but positively beneficial to the skin.

dren. Mothers have repeatedly told me of iU
good effect upon their children."
Da. Q. C. Osgood,
“ Castoria Li the best remedy for children of
which I am acquainted. I hope the day is not
far distant when mothers will consider the real
Interest of their children, and usfe Castoria in
stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
