And ming Melville Austin roe from tho
laintilvMircad table at which he and his
wife were sitting.
'I hone that you're coine tt remain at
home this morning,' Dora said, in a soft,
cwaxing tone, that well became her pelilc
figure and blonde haired, girlish beauty
'Do you know, Austin, that you have not
painted an atom of canvas this week? There
your new picture of Anthony and Cleopa
'Yes, my love,' the young arli-t interrupt
ed, 'I plead guilty to having shamefully
neirlected Anthony and Cleopatra ; but this
morning's engagement will not occupy much

mile that nlaved about her mouth and
danced iu tho blue depths of her tender
eyes must have been thoroughly aggretable
Was ever woman so blessed? she inur
mured presently, as if asking the question
of her own heart. 'Three years to-morrow
since we were married, and slill the same
devoted love from dear Melville. How
foolish I was ever to dream that his worldly
succe-ses would cool the ardor ot that
love I Nothing can ever change him noth
'Tho young woman ha-t called ma'am, and
is now wailing outside. Shall I show her
iuto Mr. Austin's studio?'
Dora's meditations had been abruptly
broken by the voice of the stately butler, who
stood at her elbow.
Oh ! you mean Mr. Austin's model?' she
said a liltle confusedly. 'Yes, James, I be
lieve your master wishes her to wait in the
studio til! his return. I!y the way, James

The man bowed and departed to execute
Mrs. Austin's order, returning presently, fol
lowed by a poorly clad wnmaii,of whose face
Dora merely caught n momentary glimpso
as she hurried towards- the adjoining stu
'How beautilul !' tho young wife murmur
ed ; 'and what a faco for Cleopatra. She
teemed auxiou-t to escf.po ray notice, poor
woman ! I wonder if she is ashamed of her
vocation? You told her, James, did you
not' addressing the butler, who returned at
thls moment 'that Mr. Austin would re
turn very shortly ?'
James was not absent from tho breakfast
room five minutes befnro he again made bis
appearance) there. A rather shabby man
desired to see Mrs, Austin. Should he ad

Hut the ceremonious hutler had scarcely
finished speaking when a gruir voice sound

paid. 'I havo particular buslntu with Mm.
'Yes .lames you may go.'
The words were gasped forth tomchow
from Dora.s while lips. If the servant ob
served the agitation which had suddenly
overpowered Ids mistress, he wai too well
trained to maniftst tho least rurnrfoe, and
quietly withdrew from the room, closing the
door nfter him.
'Oh, heaven I U it you, Mark Dillon ? I
thought you dead I '
She had rUcn while t-ptaklnp the above
vords, but the hone whisper In which sho
uttered them died to filence before she had
finished, and Dora Austin fell heavily for

The sound of her fall wai quickly follow
ed by that of an opening door at the further
end of the room, as Mr. Austin's model,
wealing a startled look on her beautiful face
hurried in from the adjoining studio. I!ut
the stranger's bark was turned to her as lie
bent over the prostrate figure of Dora.
Nor was lie aware of Ihe woman's presence

lightly on the shoulder, and Iu a rather tim

the next room and lnard

s face towards tho speaker, while still
stooping over Mrs. Austin's senteless body.
'Uh, I recollect,' he continued, sternly; 'you
told me that j on went cult as a model, and
that this woman's husband is an artist. That
account", pcrlinp, for your being here, and
you may thank your stars fir having so good
an excuse. If I thought vou had followed

Tremblit'g in every limb, the woman an
swered pleadingly : 'I had no thought ol
following yon, Marl;. I never imagined
that you knew Ibis lady. I '
Leave the house iustantly.Kllen I Don't
hesitate a moment, but go at once,'
Tho woman shuddered and turned toward
the door leading into the studio
I may explain this matter to you some
otlur time,' the man continued, 'but tv
member, I warn you against remaining in
this house a moment longer than you can
When the studio door had closed behind the
woman's retreating steps, Mark Dillon once
more bent over the white face of Dora Aus
tin. A faint shiver convulsed ber frame at
this moment, and while his gaze was eagerly
fastened upon her countenance, the slken
lashes slowly lifted themselves from her
e v es.
Then it was no dream,' she murmured
hor-ely, ri'ing from ber fallen posture, as
sisteil by tho man she addressed. 'You have
come,' she presently continued, 'to reveal all

Ought engagements to bo long or short?
It has often been said that nothing helps so

The solicitude of David Coppcrficld's friend,
Ttaddles, to buy hits of furniture, llowcr

and his betrothed were to dwell was a pretty
thing and much to be commended; but ou

t'ur'JK ''10 I'Ofiotl of probation
In tins case
much of the bloom is taken off the poetry of
courtship, and no less gilding off tho pros
pects of marriage. Thero may bo a great
deal to say against tho policy of wedding in
haste, but young people who lake each other
for better or for worse, in all the illusion of
mutual trust and admiration, go through a
timo of cesta.y unknown to those who marry
quite rationally. The honeymoons of such
pairs are halcyon epochs to bo remembered
a life long, and if tho allcr period seem
dull and loveless by comparison, yet it is
something to have lied for however brief a
time up to the highest ideal of felicity. He-
sides, theio is no little sweetness in having
faced the first hardships of life together I It
a young couple have to encounter pocriy,
and if they conquer it side by side, lightening
all their labors by sharing them and dimin
ishing their troubles by mutual consolation
and engagement, they forge links which must
bind llieir hearts closer and closer together.
I like to fcce a smug young man stacking up
money in a bank against tils wedding day,
while his future wife looks on complacently
at the operation, as who should say, Thomas
must cam a good many more pounds before
bo can furnish a hout.e good enough to lodge

band and wife who have feathered their little
nest together. It is pleasant to hear a smil
ing woman remark : ' Wo had nothing at all
when we married ; but see now how ctsy we
have made our house.' This means lhat
there has been cheerful hard work on the one
side, thrift and self denial on the other in
fact,uuion. After all, the yoke of marriage
is an apparatus that should sit on two pairs
of shoulders ; and thero is nothiog very seem
ingly in seeing a girl wait to wear her own
part of it until it has been nicely padded with
My advice to young people who must pass
throucfh long engagements is to seo as little
of each other as possible, and likewise to cor
respond sparingly. Quarrels are easily hatch
ed, even on paper, and they aro a'inost sure
to rise if an exchange of love-letters bo com
menced at the dangerous rate of one a day,
or week. This pace is too fast to last. I
should say that one letter a fortnight was am
ple. If thiswise abstemiousness from the
Uioofpcuand ink be tried; if tho loving
pair see each other but two or three times a
year at Christmas, at Easter, for perhaps
half a week during the summer ; and if, dur
ing their separation, they remind one anoth
er prettily ot their reciprocal aiiection by
gifts of flowers, trinkets, nicely hemmed
pocket handkerchiefs and well worked slip
pers in worsted, then tho rocky time of a long
engagement may possibly bo sailed through
without accident. Nevertheless, all this leads
up to repeating that, when young people have
made up their minds to marry, the sooner
they do so tho better. Ijmdon Truth.

The secretary of war has sent to the senate
tho reports of several surveys for improve
ments ordered by the river and harbor bill of
1S79. Atuoug these surveys was one of the
Susquehanna river. The river and harbor
bill of 1879 provided for an examination of
the North Itranch of the Susquehanna riv
er, irom Wilkesbarre to tlio New lork slate
line, iu order to discover how much it would
cost to make the channel of this part of the
stream two feet deep at mean low water for
tho purposes of steam navigation. Colonel
J. A. Macomb, of tho corps of cnginecrs.was
placed in chargo of this work by the war de
partment, and bo placed it in the hands of
James Worrall, a civil engineer.
,a)l has not confined his labors to a survey of
tho proposed improvement iu the Puxiuehan-
ua, but has presented in his report, submit-
ted tn the senate, an elaborate scheme for
estaMi-hing canal navigation between the
Kreat akes and llaltitnore. and diverting wes-
tern freight from New York to southern ports.
He believes that the Sufquehatina can le

Tho great national highway which ho pro-
noses to have established by the government
is to bo as follows : From liull'alo, by the
way of tho Erie canal, 150 miles, to Monte-
zums ; then from Montezums, by Seneca lake I
and the Chemung canal, tn 1-Jmira ; then, by
the Chemung and the valley of the North
Branch of the Su-quchauna, to Northuuiber
land, am) then to Havre do Grace, at the
mouth ol the Su-quehanna. Uo would have
the locks of the Erie eularged, so that boats
