"Oh, what a handsome man?" cried Mrs. Hunter, with great de light; and such a charming foreign accent, too." "Mrs. Hunter was a widow rich, childless, fair and .35 and she made the remark ahove recorded to Mr. Bunting, bachelor, who had come to pay an afternoon call, apropos of the departure of Professor La Fon taine, who had, according to eti quette, taken his departure on the arrival of Mr. Bunting. "Don't like to contradict a lady," said Mr. Bunting, "but I can't agree with you : and foreigners are gener ally impostor?, too." Mrs. Hunter shopk her head co quettishly. She was rather coquet tish and rather gushing for her age. "Oli, you gentlemen! you gentle men !'' she said : "I can't see that yon ever do justice to each other." And then she rang the bell and ordered the servants to bring tea, and pressed Bachelor Bunting to stay to partake of it. There was a maiden aunt of SO iu the house, to pit' propriety, and allow her the privilege of having as many bache lors to tea as she chose and Mr. Bunting forgot his jealousy, and was once more happy. He was, truth to tell, very much in love wjth the widow, who was his junior by fifteen years. He liked the idea of her living on the interest of her money, too. She was a splendid housekeeper and a fine pianist. She was popular and good looking. He intended to offer himself for her ac ceptance as he felt sure she would not refuse hirn. But this dreadful Professor La Fontaine, with black eyes as big as saucers, and long side whiskers black, also, as any raven's wing had the advantage of bcinr ylhe widow's junior. This opportu I nity to make a fool of herself is so irresistible io every widow. It troubled his dreams a good deal not that he thought him handsome. Oh, no! But still at .50 a man does not desire a lival. however he may despite him. "She did not ask him to stay, and she did me," paid Mr. Bunting, and departed, after a most delightful evening, during whirh the maiden aunt (who was, at least, as deaf as a post) snored sweetly in her chair. But alas! ou the very next even ing his sky was overcast. Professor La Fontaine took the widow to the opera. He saw them enter the doors of the opera house, and having fol lowed and secured a seat in a retir ed portion of the house, also, noticed that the Professor kept his eyes fixed on the lady's face in the most impressive manner during the whole of the performance, and that she now and then even returned his glances. "It can't go on," said Mr. Bunting to himself "I can't allow it. She'll regi ct it all her lite. I must remon strate with her. No woman likes a coward. Faint heart never won fair lady. She'll admire me for speaking out." And that very evening Mr. Bunt ing trotted up to the widow's house, full of a deadly purpose, and with a set speech learned oil" by heart. The speech he forgot as he crossed the threshold. The purpose abided with him. There were the usual remarks about the weather. The usual chit chat followed, but the widow saw that Mr. Bunting was not at his ease. At last, with the sort of plunge that a timid bather makes into the chilly water, bedashed into the sub ject nearest his heart. "He's a rascal, ma'am, I give you my word." "Oh dear! Who is?" cried the widow. "That frog-eater." replied the bachelor., Upon my soul. I speak for your own good. I am interested in your welfare. Don't allow his visits. You don't know thing about him." "Do you allude to Monsieur La Fontaine?" asked Mrs. Hunter sol emnly. "I allude to that fellow," said Bachelor Bunting. "Why, his very presence proves him to be a rascal. 1 I'd enjoy kicking him out so much, I " "Sir," said the widow, "if you haven't been drinking, I really think you must be mad." "Ma'am !" cried Mr. Bunting "Perhaps, however, I should take no notice of such conduct, said Mrs. Hunter. "Perhaps I should treat it with silent contempt." "Oh, good gracious !" cried Bach elor Bunting; "don't treat me with silent contempt. It's my affection for you that urges me on. I adore you. Have me. Accept me. Marry me, and be mine to cherish and pro tect from all audacious Frenchmen. The widow's heart was melted. She burst iuto tears. "Oh, what shall I say?" she sob bed. "I thought you merely a friend. I am I I am engaged to the Professor; he proposed yester day evening." Bachelor Bunting had dropped down on his knees while making the offer. Now he got up with a groan not entirely caused by disappoint ed love, for he had the rheumatism. "Farewell, false one," he said, feeling for his hat without looking for it, "I leave you forever." He strode away banging the door after him. The widow cried and then laughed, and then cried again. In fact, she had a regular fit of what the maiden aunt called "stericks," and the chambermaid "high strikes," before she was brought to and pre vailed on to drink a glass of wine and something hot and comforting in the edible line. After which the thought of her hancee consoled her. Days passed on. Bachelor Bunting did not drown himself nor sup cold poison. The wedding was fixed. The housemaid informed her friend that Mrs. Hunter "kept steady company." The maiden aunt, who had no in come of her own, curried favor by being almost always in a state of apparent coma. The widow was in the seventh heaven of bliss, and all went merry as a marriage bell until one evening as the betrothed pair sat before the fire in the polished grate, there came a ring at the bell, and the girl who answered it soon looked iuto the parlor to announce the fact that a little girl in the hall would come in. "Oh, let her in," said Mrs. Hunter, "I'm so fond of the dear children in the neighborhood. It's one of them, I presume." But, while she was speaking, a small but old-looking girl, in a short frock, with a tambourine in her hand, bounced into the room, and. throwing herself into the Professor's arms, said, with a strong French accent : "Darling papa, have I then found you? How glad mamma will be! We thought you dead." "i am not your papa!" said the Frenchman, hiring pale. "Are you mad, my dear little girl ?" "iXo, no, no; you are my papa!" cried the child. "Do not deny your Estelle. Does hhe not know you? Ah, my heart, it tells me true. Dear mamma and 1 have almost starved, but she would never pledge her wedding ring, never. She piays the organ, I the tamborine. We have suffered; but now papa will return to us. Ah, heaven!" "My gracious! the morals of fur riners. He'd have married missus !" cried the servant girl at the door. "She tells one black lie. Never before have I seen her; believe me, madame!" cried the poor French man. "Oh, Alphonse!"cried the widow. "But there, I will be firm. My best friends warned me of you. Take wi ii.-u yu: ixever enter my presence again. Go with your un fortunate child your poor, half starved little girl. Go home to your deserted wife. Go!" "Ah, madame, zese 13 falsehoods !" cried the unfortunate Frenchman, losing his temper in his excitement. "Belief-- " "Out of my house!" cried the widow. "Peggy, open the door. Go ! Oh.what an escape I have had I" Professor departed. Mrs. Hunter threw herself into a chair and burst into tears. After a while she grew more calm, and, taking a letter from a drawer, she perused it. "Ah, me! what deceivers these men are!" she said as she leaned pensively back on the cushions. "Only to think he could write a let ter so full of love, and prove such a villain? but I am warned in time." And she tore the letter into frag ments. The maiden aunt, who had not heard a word, demanded an expla nation. Biddy howled it through her ear trumpet in these words : "The scoundrel has ever so many wives and families already, playing tambourines for their bread the rascal!" And in the midst the door bell rang and Mr. Bunting walked in with a polite bow, and approaehed the widow. Biddy and the aunt slipped out of the room. "I called to apologize," said Mr. Bunting. "I was hasty the other day. Had I known the gentleman was dear to you, I should have restrained my speech. I wish you happiness; I " "Don't, please," cried the widow. "He's'worse than you painted him. I've found him out. I hate him. As for inc. lean never bo happy again." "Not with your own Bunting?" cried the bachelor, sitting down be side her. "I'm afraid not." "Are you sure ?" "No, not quite," drying her eye9. "Then marry me, ray dear, and try it. Do, oh, do !" Mrs. Hunter sobbed and consented After having a white watered silk made up and trimmed with real lace it was too bad not to figure as a bride after all. She married Bache lor Bunting, and was very happy. It was well, perhaps, that she had not the fairy gift of the invisible cap and did not put it on and follow Mr. Buting to a mysterious recess iu the rear ol a theater, whither he took his way after parting from the wid ow on the night of the engagement. There he met a little girl, small, but old-looking, the same, indeed, who had claimed Professor as her lost papa, and this is what he said to her. "Here i3 the money I promised you, my child, and you acted the thing exceedingly well. I know that by the effect you produced. She believes that he's a married man, and he can't prove to the contrary. I knew you'd be able to act it out when I saw you play the deserted child in the tragedy." Then $100 was counted into the little brown hand, and Bachelor Bunting walked off triumphant. To this day his wife does not know the truth, but alludes to poor inno cent Professor La Fontaine as that wicked Frenchman. Ho-V to Select si HusJmml. It has been profoundly remarked, the true way of telling a toadstool from a mushroom is to eat it. If you die it was a toad-stool, if you live it was a mushroom. A similar method is employed in the selection of husbands: marry him, if he kills you he was a bad husband ; if he makes you happy he is a good one; there is really no other criterion. As Dr. Samuel Johnson remarked, the proof of the pudding is iu the eating thereof. Some young men that seem unexceptionable, indeed very desirable, when they arc single, aro perfectly horrible as soon as they arc married. AH the latent brute there is in the heart comes out as soon as a sensitive and delicate being seeks her happiness in his compan ionship ; the honeymoon lasts a very short time, the receptions and the round of parties are soon over, and then the two sit down to make home happy. If she has married a society man, he will soon begin to get bor ed ; he will yawn and go to sleep on the sofa; then he will take his hat and go down to the club and see the boys, and, perhaps, not come home till morning. If she ha3 married a man engrossed in business, he will be fagged out when he comes home. He may be a sickly man and must nurse him, or a morose man and must seek to cheer, a drunken man to sit up for, a violent man that she fears, a fool whom she soon learns to despise, a vulgar man for whom she must apologize in short there arc thousands of ways of being bad husbands, a very few ways of being good ones. And the worst of it is, the poor silly women are apt to ad mire in single men the very habits which make bad husbands, and look with contempt or ridicule upon those quiet virtues which make home happy. Men with very little per sonal beauty or style, often make the wife happy and sometimes quite the reverse. The number of ways of boing a bad husband is al most as great as the number of ways of beiog ugly. No one can tell from the demeanor of a single man what sort of husband he will be. Mean time she must marry somebody. Eat it, if you die, it was a sort of of toadstool ; if you live, it was .1 sort of mushroom. Moral Character. There is nothing which adds so much to the beauty and power of man, as a good moral character. It is his wealth his influence his life. It dignifies him in every sta tion, exalts him in every condition, and glorifies him at every period of life. Such a character is more to be desired than everything else on earth. It makes a man free and in dependent. No servile tool croak ing sycophant no treacherous hon or seeker ever bore such a character. The puro joys of truth and righteous ness never spring in such a person. If young men knew how much a good character would dignify and exalt them, how glorious it would make their prospects, even in this life; never should we find them yielding to the'groyeling and base born purposes of human nature. "When I die let me be buried within the sound of the hammer, the clang of the workshop, the hum of of the mill," says the candidate in his speech. And then he goes home and seats himself in his rocking chair, while his wife carries coal out of tho cellar to get the supper with. The Chixiiolm Murder Trial. The trial of one of the murderers of the Chisholm family was conclud ed in Ivemper county, Mississippi, last week. The trial was conducted with reasonable fairness, and the guilt of the murderer, Gully, wa easily and clearly proved, but the jury after being out a half an hour broujjht in a verdict of "not guilt-," and tho murderer receiving the heartiest congratulations of the crowd. Judge daughter Chisi'olm, his sons and weie murdered simply because they dared to .be Itcpubli cans in the State of Mississippi. Wc need not now detail the account of the murder in the Kemper county jail. Its main facts will be remem bered by onr readers. But the fol lowing portion of Mrs. Chisholm's testimony at the trial will bring the circumstances to remembrance. She said : "When I got in I found that John ny was dead. His clothes were on fire, and I wet my fingers iu his blood, and put out the firo. Cornelia thought she had put out the fire, but she did not complete the work. They had borne the body behind the cages, so as to prevent him being trampled to pieces. The crowd cried out, 'Fire the jail !' and we feared wc should be burnt ottt. We got every thing in readiness to leave. My daughter said, as we started down the stairs, that Johuuv died an casv death, and that it was better to be shot than burned to death. When we got to the foot of the stairs wc were stopped by the grating door. Here Gully had a gun pointed through the grate, and I thought that he was going to shoot me; but he turned the barrel back and forth to aim at my husband. I cried out to Mr. Chisholm, 'Down!' My daughter threw her arms about her father's neck, and cried on!, 'Have you not had blood enough for one day? If you want more take mine, and spare my precious papa.' Mr. Gully turned the gun again and shot her in the arm, breaking her brace let and driving the crushed edges into her arm. He stepped back and let us out of the sLiirway to the first floor, and we tried to take ref uge behind some boxes iu the rear end of the hall. My husbaud had already received several shots, and was now shot once more this time in the hip. My daughter received in all five shots in the calf of her leg, one in the heel, one iu the arm, and her arm was shattered for I heard the rattle of the bones when I tied up her arm with a handker chief. Her face was streaming with blood. We paused there, and the crowd withdrew. She went to the door to as.k for help, and some one shot her in the leg. She ran back and told me of it, and I cautioned her not to go to the door again. Some help came in and wc carried Mr. Chisholm home, I carrying his head, Clay our son, his limbs, and the aid his arms. Ou our way some men came after us, and Cornelia held up her bleeding arm and plead ed for help." The New York Sun is u Demo cratic paper, but its managers see that the?" Democratic party is not strong enough to carry the load of these murders for opinion'3 sake iu the South. Speakijig of the Chis holm murder trial that paper says: "The acquittal of Gully is a tclliug Bcpublican argument. Sneering at the "bloody shirt," will not coun teract the effect of scenes like this, faithfully described. They rckiudlc tho spirit which raised and sustain ed the Union armies iu the war, and politicians who think this spirit will down at the first bidding do not un dcrstand its power." Stalirnrtitm'rf Ultimatum. The New York Sun warns its fel low democratic partyats that the programme of the republican stal warts is to force a sectional cam paign and to nominate Grant as its exponent and tells them that if they are weak or foolish enough to fall into this trap they will deserve to be beaten. To avoid this fate "it may be necessary to run out of the old ruts, and it is indispensable to dis card bourbonism," and to nomite a candidate whose very name shall be a guarantee against farther sectional agitation. For the democracy to discard bourbonism and sectionalism would be to leave the part of Hamlet out of the copperhead-confederate tragic-comedy which for eighteen years now ha3 made the angels weep and the devils laugh. The demo cratic genius for a blundering worse than crime may be safely trusted to insure the consummation of the programme of the republican stal warts, under a leader whose ultima tum to Bourbonism and Sectionalism will be, "Unconditional surrender otherwise I propose to move imme diately on your works." Sad. Ittit True. Next to not marrying at all U an unfortunate marriage. But of the two evils, the majority of women would tako the latter. There is no romance in living a lonoly life, and there is a great deal of what the French describe as extremely bad taste. It was possibly in this view of the matter that an old maid iu jhis city is receiving the attentions of a gentleman who is strongly sus pected of having strangled his first wife.
