Julius Byron was an ideal picture of
a student brown eyes, with a far
away dreamy look, hair long enough
to show a tendency to wavo loosely
back from tho forehead, and a pale,
clear complexion set off by a golden
brown velveteen coat, which ho wore
when in his Btudy. T wenty-nino years
old, undeniably handsome, gifted with
winning manners, and shepherd of a
llock meat willing to bo guided, Julius
Byron, as if by a miracle, had escaped
being spoiled and petted info effemi
nacy. Ilia safeguard lay perhaps in a
pair of soft eyes which had held him
spell-bound for a few rapturous weeks,
and tlio witchery of winch had lasted
over thrco years of almost total sepa
ration. Miriam Douglas, dispensing tea and
gingei bread to a horde of charity chil
dren in tho park at Mount Edgecombe,
was ono of tho prettiest and daintiest
of women, in a muslin dress iti color
matching forget-me-nots and her oyes
equally well, and with roses at her
waist and throat which stole their deli
cato tint from her cheeks.
Miriam was 17 that day, and tho
blue muslin was her first long dress; to
to this the little lassie paid far more
attention than to tho admiring gazo of
two dreamy brown eyes. After the
feast thero were offerings of flowers,
good wishes, and rather too many kiss
es and embraces from tho charity chil
dren, and, among other trophies, Mir
iam Douglas carried nway the heart of
tho Reverend Julius Byron. Had she
known this, it would havo affected her
less than the consciousiiees that tho
Barclay girls, her former playmates,
were enviously admiring tho grown up
womanish arrangements of her bright
Thero were a few tennis parties and
5 o'clock teas after this, during which
Mr. Byron worshiped his divinity from
afar. Sho seemed a littlo in awe of
him, and rarely spoko with him more
than five minutes at a time. What a
delightful task it would bo to chase
away tho timidity from tho soft fawn
liko oyes, and how pleasant to think
that tho sea-shell pink stolo to her
cheeks frora joy at his approach!
Fate, however, cruelly interfered
with Mr. Byron's dream of awakening
loving confidence in tho bosom of this
bashful maiden of 17. In three short
weeks, before ho had mado any percep
tible headway, Miriam was summoned
to tho bedside of a dyiiiK relative, and
Julius Byron was called to a parish in
a commercial town.
Threo loner vears this idvl had been
in the past, and through all this time
tho memory of Miriam Douglas exclu

clergyman's heart, though many wcro

Ho wondered nt himself ; sho had

Still with all this uncertainty, he could

seemed to whisper that thoy would
Tho rapid skimmintr of his pen over
tho whito pago was stayed for tho sec

door outside, and Mrs. Nims, panting
J r .1 . .. . ,
mm crimson irom tno ascent ot 1110
steep stairs, exclaimed :
"There, sir ; you could not havo
found a better or cheaper satchel your
self if you had searched tho town from
end to end. Piper and Tipson say on
their oath that it is a first-rato one, and
that you needn't fear exchanging with
any ono by mistake, for they had only
ono of tho kind. This decided 1110 to
tako it, for, being rather an absent
mindod gentleman, you might easily
pick up the wrong bag."
"Thank you, Mi's. Nims, thank you,
each timo that you do anything for rao
you give mo freah cause to admiro
your clover management and fore
thought." In the wedding to tako place on tho
following day Mr. Byron felt no par
ticular interest. Tho contracting par
ties wcro almost strangors to luni, as
wcro also tho guests, with the excep
tion of Willis Howard, a school chum
of days gono by, and a friend over
sinco of tho young clergymen.
Owing to tho illness of tho bride's
mother, tho ceremony was performed
at homo. It was a preltv weddinc.

among tlio guests was tho subdued

After tho ccrcmonv. Mr. Bvron bo
took himself to a dressing room to

satchel chosen by Mrs. Nims. While
so engaged, a letter was handed him

"You will go, I supposo'" said
Willis Howard, to whom Mr. Byron
presently showed his note.
"Of course t ono cannot refuse such
a summons. It is probably a question
of life and death."
"I am duo ut Uxmooro to-night

In tho bustle and confusion at tho
station Mr. Byron's satchel was mis
laid ; but ho presently caught sight of
tho familiar object on a distant table,
and felt inwardly thankful for its un
gainly proportions and tho huge brass
diamond which made it so easily rec
ognized. At Portland a respectably-dressed
man in charge of a wngonctto camo
forward to meet Mr. Byron, and during
tho drivo to the Hall the former dis
coursed freely upon the existing stato
of affairs there.
A son and heir to her fino estate had
arrived, nnd thero had boon great re
joicing there; but within tho past twenty-four
hours their joy had been turned
into mourning by a despatch summon
ing tho nowly-mado father to tho
death-bed of his only sister, in Ger
many. The young mother seemed to
feel a presentiment of misfortune, and
insisted upon tho baby's being baptiz
ed before the deinrturo of its father.
Tho clergyman of tho parish was tern
porarily absent; hence Mr. Byron's
hasty summons. Tho ceremony would
bo performed in tho chnpel connected
with tho Hall, and would bo very
quiet, being witnessed only by the
father and grandfather of tho child,
with possibly one or two guests.
After lunching in a sombre, richly
decorated dining hall, Mr. Byroti was
shown to a bed room, with the intima
tion that his services in tho chapel
would bo required in an hour, if con
venient lo hira.
Thero was something strange and in
teresting about tho fino old mansion,
so lately a scene of rejoicing, and now

that everything was in readiness, ho
opened his Batchel, when to his con

Now ia tho Time for Woodcock,
Tho woodcock is. nt presant. tho
Bolo inspiring object of tho true Bports
man'8 thought. From tlio brakes and
marshes of tho South tho woodcock
ccuncs North to breed, arriving by
night in tlio latter part of Mnrch or
enrly in April, nnd instinctively repair
ing to the very spot whero it first
squeaked its approbation of tho first
dewy spring morning. Tho early part
oi ,i uiy was lormeny anticipated by
sportsmen as tlio season of rare sport
with tho long-billed bird?, as, with tho
advent of tho nnnivcrsarv of indepen
dence, tho laws governing tho shooting
of woodcock were off in most of tlm
btatcH. But tho laws havo changed,
men and times havo changed, ami
things aro not what thoy used to be.
Thero wns woodcock shooting then,
but where one gentleman followed tho
pnstitno those days fifty follow it now,
consequently tho'birds havo been thin
ned out to an alarming extent. Then,
too, tho sportsman of llvo and twenty
yenrs ngo was a decidedly different in
dividual from tho sportsman of this
em. Tho former with his S.iO muzzle
loader, wns proud when four or five
couples of the delicious game, carefully
buttoned up in his gamo bag, rewarded
his raornings's toil. Tho latter, pictur
esquely nttircd from head to foot in
tho latest most approved pattern of
sporting npparel, with his three-hundred
hnd-fifty-dollar - trcblc-wedgc-p.it-ent-foro-end-instantancous
loaded down with patent nppurtenan
ccs, necessitating tho aid of a page and
(;uiuuui,couiuiy, Kins nil at, rauuom, so
that none is left to replenish tho haunts
tho next season. No wonder that strin
gent laws havo been enacted by sever
al States, somo of which forbid tho pil
laging of theii game preserves by non
residents under heavy penalties.
Notwithstanding all this, however.
thoso who have a day or two of leisure
at this time may find good shooting in
Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland
and "Virginia. It has loug been a moot
ed point as to tho proper timo to shoot
a woodcock. Somo sportsmen hold
that from tho fifteenth of September on
to tho timo of tlio first sharp
frosts is about tlio right season, as the
birdsi aro not fully matured by tho
fourth of July. Others nrguo that, if
this rule bo adopted, tho birds cannot
bo found in their old haunts at tho
timo specified, that they tako to tho
high timber lands and their where
abouts aro very uncertain. Whatever
truth thero may be in this, ono thing
is certain, that birds seldom quit their
plnco until they nro matured. Another
point which would seem to favor the
postponement of tho season until a lit
tlo later is tbo fact that where tho first
broods havo been hatched early and
destroyed by the heavy April floods
which is very often tho case tho par
ent birds rear a second which aro not
fully grown by tlio early part of July,
and for this ono reason some states
have forbidden the shooting until Aug.
1. Another great objection to summer
woodcock shooting is the terrible fa
tigue consequent to man and dog with
tho thermometer at 00 degrees.
A light cim of about seven or sev
en and a half pounds weight, with
thrco drachms ot powders and an
ounce of No. 8 shot, will do effectivo
work in tho hands of a moderately fair
shooter. The little cocker spaniels
should bo employed in woodcock shoot
ing. They aro very faithful and obe
dient hunters, capablo of performing
twice the work of tho pointer or setter,
and with one-half of tho exertion. The
laws on woodcock shooting for the
neighboring States aro as follows :
Open senson in New York State, Aug.
1 to Jan. 1. except in Oneida and Her
kimer counties, whero the season is not
open till Sept. 1; Now Jersey, July 1
