Wiile open bine eyes, fringed with jetty lashes a little slender noee a mouth fit for queen Titania white brow, on which clustered rings of gold, in a fascination of disorder a cheek exquisitely fair, with tint upon it of the sea shell two little soft, helpless hands two little, slip pered feet, and yon have the picture before Koydon Howard's gaze, and the inventory successively doited down by him in his mental diary. 'Awfully pretty,' was the verdict rendered. Absolutely good for nothing. Ah, if life were all sum mer such women would make per fect wives.' An andible sigh followed the lat ter thought of this most grave phil osopher; a sigh so deep, so profound that it startled the girl from her reverie. 'A penny for your thoughts,' Ma jor, she said in a low, musical voice. The voice suited her, it was like all else about Fay Cichings iu per fect attune. 'You bid too low,' answered the man ; 'aud yet too high, since you ask upou a subject of whose reply you must be conscious. You forget that, spending the last bonr in your society, my thoughts could not wan der far.' 'But you sigh. Must I hold my self responsible for the sigh, too?' 'I fear so. In remembering that my furlough is rapidly slipping away, and that within a month I must join my regiment on the plains, leaving my chaimiug companion of this morning. Do you still bid a penny to inquire into a thing so deep as a sigh?' The color deepened a little on the beautiful cheek. 'His charming companion of the morning.' This wa how he regard ed her this man, whose brave deeds had preceded him, until, before meetine. had assigned him some thing akin to hero-worship. A little sharp stab of pain shot through her heart, but she smiled bravely. 'All that was scarcely worth a sigh from you,' she said. 'It is never those who go amid new scenes who feel most keenly the parting, but rather those who are left behind, amid the old familiar surroundings, and say, 'Yesterday he sat herer' or 'Yesterday we beard his laugh,' or perchance Cud a glove that he has dropped, or a cigar half smoked to them it is something felt, something tangible.' 'Do you think so? Does the saud sigh for the retreating wave when already one coming claims its wel come? I should be glad to feel that Miss Fay sometimes gave me a thought among the many new aspi rants for the hour she has sometimes bestowed on me. A soldier's life has many charms, spite of his hard ships, and there is some fascination, spite of its pain, in the long, solitary musings he holds sitting at the door of his tent, where, instead of the plain stretching before him, he views the mental panorama of his past. I'm afraid mine will confine itself to one figure. Can yon guess whose," Miss Fay?' There was an instant's pause an instant when something stirred with in Roydon Howard's heart, prompt ing the impulse to cry out : 'Who but yours? Make imagination but a reality! Come with me! Share a soldier's life, and let our mutual love smooth the rough places !' But scarcely was it born than he strangled it. lie had no reason to suppose that this girl cared for him ; but even so, at least it was but a passing fancy. And iu time of real danger where would she be? How would she fit him to ride forth to meet a foe? Either with hysterical weeping or a swoon. Xo, no! Here under the green trees, in a ball-room, at the head of a luxnrious dinner table, such women were charming enough to turn a man's braiu ; but in mo ments of peril, when death, no longer clothed in the poet's rythm, stalked before them, bare and ungainly, it was little wonder that they fled shrieking from his grim presence. , Therefore the pause lasted an in stant only; then Koydon answered his own question with a laugh. 'I declare I am almost growing sentimental. If in anybody's pres ence but yours, Miss Fay, I should apologize for so unwonted a mood. But you are wholly responsible for it, and it must be with you so old a story to inspire it that I will not waste the words. By the way, there is my horse. I had no idea it was late. Aurevoir. Remember, I have the first and last waltzes this evening.' The girl stood motionless, watch ing him as he strode away watch ing him vault upon bis horse, his tall, superb figure showing to such splendid advantage, watching horse and rider as they cantered out of sight, the latter turniug first to give a farewell salute with his whip. 'So, in scarce a moment, will he ride out of my life,' she murmured to.hersolf with white lips. 'Ob, Roydon, is it that you are too proud to ask me to share the peril and pri vations of a soldier's life, or that it would give you no pleasure to have me share it?' i 'Will you go out on the lake with me this afternoou, Miss Fay?' asked Major Howard, a week later. 'It looks a little squally, but we will keep closo into shore, so as to run home if the. clouds thicken.' 'Of course I will come,' assented Fay, 'and as to the clouds, don't watch them too closely. I rather like storms.' 'What a perfect picture she makes !' thought Roydou, as he promptly, at the appointed time, assisted her into the snil-bo.it he had named in her honor, the yachting dress of blue fitting closely to the exquisitely out lined figure, and on the golden braids nestled a coquettish sailor hat. Fifteen minutes later a splen did breeze had canied them far out into the lake. 'The storm has concluded to post pone itself in our special favor,' said Roydon, glancing up at the blue sky, 'or perhaps they don't think soldiers should be too severely tried a sail ors. Which in it, Miss Fay?' 'Do you appeal to me as the spirit of the storm cloud? If so, I shall call on it to avenge me.' He answered simply by a look, but it caused her eyes to droop. She stretched her little white hand down to the water's edge, watching the current resist as the boat sped onward. 'So,' he mined, 'am I resisting the voice of my heart ; so must I resist to the end.' They epoke but little. They were alone and together around them water, above them the sky, beneath them a grave. And both were young and in each heart the same voice was speaking, yet their lips were eealed. Thus an hour passed, when suddenly Roydon tacked. 'What are you doing?' cried Fay in a tone of disappointment. 'Surely we're not going home?' 'I wish we were already there,' answered her companion with a blanched cheek, just as a little breath of wind, fresher than any they had felt, blew upon them. 'Don't be frightened, Miss Fay,' continued Roydon, aasuringly. 'It'd one of these treacherous squalls. We're iu for it, but I'll do the best I can.' 'Can't I help you?' The man glanced up amazed. She neither cried nor groaned. There was no tremor in her tone. His cheek was whiter than was hers. 'Pshaw ! she did not realize the danger,' be said, mentally. 'Can you hold this?' handing her a rope as he spoke. The next moment the sqnall struck them. The little yacht lay fully on its side, then righted itself. Fay's lips were a little pale now, but no sound escaped them, only she had held o tightly to the rope, spite of his resistence, that it had already cut into the tender flesh. The storm was now fully upon them. It was fierce as it was sudden. They were drenched with water. They could no longer see each other for the spray. 'Fay,' cried Roydon, 'yon are frightened.' 'With yon ?' she answered. 'No,' and her tone was firmer than .his own. The next moment the boat, strnck by a sharper blast than first, went over. Both found themselves cling ing to its sides. 'Fay, tell me,' he said, 'that yon forgive mc for this. Oh, child, must we die when life holds so much sweetness?' 'The storm won't last long. We may yet be saved,' she answered, in her sweet young voice, 'but Roydon, if I slip, don't try to save me. It will only loc two lives, and mine is not worth as much as yours.' 'My God! without you, what would mine be?' The word escaped him ere he realized their meaning. Tiun it thou fnr mw cnL-n ilnor' Fay replied, 'and remember, always, had I my choice, I wonld have chosen to have died thus with you than to have lived on without yon. My love, good-bye.' The next iustant the waters had caught her torn and bleeding hands, all cut by the rope, from their slight hold ; but Major Howard had spok en words with no idle meaning when he bad asked her what his life would be worth without her. Quick ae the current in its hungry greed for its beautiful prey, he threw about her bis protectingarm. Then, as though heaven smiled, the winds ceased as suddenly as they bad rieen, and the sun burse forth from.' its hiding place, showlug the rescue which was beaiing down upon them. May I see you, if but for five minutes?' were the words scrawled on the card Fay held a few hours -hiter, in her bandaged bauds, as she lay upon the couch, very pale and exhausted, but with a heart full of gratitude for her wonderful escape, awaiting him who had penned the words. How well she knew the quick, im patient step which heralded his coming. Her cheek flushed as he strode impetuously into the room. 'I could not sleep before seeing you,' he said, 'ily brave girl! how little I knew you! I thought be cause you were beautiful there could be no courage In your soul ; that hecauso your hand.-! were small and soft and white, they could have no strength. Dear little hands, taking them tenderly in lib own, 'They helped to save our lives to-day. Fay, will you give them to me, dar ling? Will you be a soldier'd wife, and teuch him, 1113- own sweet love. some of ihu bravery that only such women as you can teach to men?' A great light shone iu the beauti oves upraised to his. 'I owe you my life,' she whisper ed. 'If a debt eo rich will receive payment so poor, lake it, Roydon; it is yours.' Intellectual Women. Much of the old prejudice against intellectual women remains, because the average man continues to regard them as inseparable from bookish dowdies and pedantic egotists, from tumbled hair, soiled cutis and per conal inelegance. He has not learn ed that intellect no longer expresses itself if, in truth it ever did in such form and fashion. He may have an intellectual wife and be ig norant of the fact, since she fails to discuss (Jreek roots and conic sec tions, and since she fnlly appreciates the advantages of clothes. His ro mantic devotion to her is prover bial ; and he rejoices in the con sciousness that he loves, often years after marriage, more than he loved heron their wedding day. He never imagines that he is under the per manent spell of her intellect, and there are thousand of men of his nebulous intelligence. The woman who knows how to use her intellect ha a guarantee for the final loyalty of her lover or husband. He may sweive or wander, but hhe can be patient and undisturbed; the fortes of her mind, working at a distance, will in due time bring the truant, contrite aud chagrined, to her ever welcome arms. The intellectual woman, properly balanced, is, iu all the relations in life, the best aud longest loved, and is-always most genial and attractive. He who declares that he detests in tellectual women simply means that he detests the ostentation of intel lect, the self-consciousness of undi gested information. When he meets a really intellectual woman, he is likely to think her charming from lack of intellect. He is too biased to comprehend that it is her intellect that gives her charm. If most men who are sill in love with their wives could make the last analysis of their fascination, they would be pretty certain to find its chief source to be a harmonious intellect. It must be ackuowlcdged that Senator Van Wyck is reasonably prompt in fulfilling his promises and contracts made during the Senato rial fight last winter. One of his latest appointments is that of Hon. Thomas Graham, the Democratic State Senator from this county, as Deputy United States Surveyor. It will be remembered by the people of this county that it was predicted during the campaign last fall that in the event of Mr. Graham's election, he would vote on the first two or three ballots for the Democratic can didate for TJ. S. Senator, after which he would cast bis vole for whoever the bolting element of the Republi can party in this county wanted him to. How well that prediction has been verified i3 well known. Much has been said by the leaders in this bolting movement about " methods," "political machines," " rings," "slates," &c, and the prom ise of office for services rendered, and here we have an exemplification of the very thing they harped on so much a regular, plain bargain and sale beforehand. It was known to many at the time of Mr. Van Wyck's election that Mr. Graham was to have this appointment in considera tion of his vote for Van Wyck, and the Blade gave a hint of it over two months ago. It is all right for Van Wyck to make his promise good to Mr. Gra ham. If this is not "machine poli tics," pray tell us what it is, and what will his Democratic friends think of this kind of trading? But such is politics in the far west. Seward Blade. HonekeeplHg; "fleaey. If every man would pay his wife a weekly sum for housekeeping, clothing, etc., he would find that in nine cases out of ten her manage ment of the fnnd would increase not only his comfort, but that of the whole house. If she is equal to the task of being a wife and a mother, she is also equal to the task of sup plying and paying for the daily ne cessities of the home. If sho is head manager she wilt take pride and pleasure in making a hundred cents go a great way much further than a man could make a hundred and fifty go. She will also make calculations about the expenditure of the weekly sum, will lay by a certain amount toward buying such and such supplies iu quantities; will learn that there is no economy iu buying soap by the bar. starch or sugar by the pound. She will sys tematize her affairs, keep books a day book and a ledger and exhibit her well kept accounts with pride and delight. The very fact that the expenditure of the money belongs to her will sweeten her life, give new zedt to her occupations, and make her a happier and more con tented wife. To most women, the idea ot asking for money is abhor rent. They put it otl from day to day, the dread of it is so great. Thoy will wear expensive clothes in the kitchen rather than ask for the money needful for the purchase of a plain calico dress. Shrug your shoulders if you choose, you unbelieving husband, and say: 'I never knew such a woman.' I beg your pardon, but I must contradict you. The woman you call wife, I do believe, would rather siifler with the toothache than ak you for money. This ino false statement ; most women do shrink from asking the head of the family needful for boots, clothing and the rommnn nece'sities of life ; it is neither agreeable nor pleasant for thorn, and they should not be fort-etl to do it; if they do their ap pointed work, the money to carry it on should be freely offered, month ly or weekly, as may be desired. Some husbands have seen how much their mothers suffered for the want of the money, even when their fathers were rich, and they profit by the fact and give to their wives a generous supply, never forcing them to become applicants for it, and by so doing they greatly increase their dora. stie huppine--. Place confi dence in a woman's ability to act, and she will fully repay if; donbt her executive powers refuse her responsibility and you may rue it. The subject of money supplies in the home opens a wide field of thought to the husband. Will he cultivate it? Many wives of the middle class have been accustomed to earn their own ward-robes before they were married. Bnt after mar riage all is changed ; they must ak for what they require rather than have it paid to them quarterly. At first their wants are few, or all sup plied, but one or two years- altera their outlook, and it becomes very dreary. Can the husband under stand this? I trow not. He will tell you, "My wife has all he a.sks for," never dreaming how many days it requires to snmmou her courage to ask for necessities. "An utterly faNo statement," exclaims some one,' the re's no woman afraid to ask for what she needs !" May I ask you to Inquire of yonr own wife how she feels on such occasions? Unless she is afraid to speak the truth, your eyes may be opened somewhat. Country Gentleman. Still Another Comet. Prof. Swift, Director of the War ner Observatory, Rochester, N. Y., has just verified the discovery of another comet, in the Constellation of Auriga, made July 14th, by Prof. J. M. Schaeberie, of Ann Arbor, Mich. This new comet is apparent ly coming directly toward the earth, and, for a telescopic comet, is very bright; indeed, it can readily be seen with a good opera glass. It is quite remarkablo that it should be in just the spot where the preseat large comet was first seen by the naked eye in this latitude aud it shows (hat the two bodies must have crowed each other's paths. This makes the fourth comet discovered within ten weeks, a circumstance heretofore unknown in history. Prof. Schaeberie has duly filed hid application lor the Warner prize of $200, and as yet be is the oaly claimant. A little fellow, in turning over the leaved of a scrap-book, came across the well-known picture of soma chickens just coming out of their shells. He examined the picture carefully, and then, with a grave, sagacious look, slowly remarked, "They came out 'eos they was afraid of being boiled."
