With Hps apart and hair of russet brown.
You came, dear heart, across tlio iloner-dccked
Sweeping tho grasses with your tralliug gown;

And In jour eyes there was a sun-set rny:
You came with annsoulst retched you loved me so

A soft brceo stealing from tlio sunny south
Blew from your brow the tnngled frlngo away.
And wooed Iho kisses from your crimson mouth;
The boughi caressed you as you camo along,
The red sun kissed you with its parting ray,
Tho wcodlark praised you in his happy bong,

Ah, mo I ah, mo I but yesterday Is dead:

And still tho woodlark warbles overhead;

We were b .th at white heal; Mrs.
Jiipi, the aunt and legal guardian of
my adored Julia, ixxiiively trembled
with rage, and looked round the room
as if in search of soino weapon with
which to attack me. She was large
and stout, had a deep ban voice and
hideous wiry curlii, and wore glasses
of such an intense matrnifjiiig tiower
that she seemed to be always glaring
at 0110 hko a hungry Cvorgon (by the
way, what is a (ioroii T), and coulu
drive men awav from the vieinitv of
her niece my dear Julia by t-imply
favoring them with a stony stare, as
fixed and awful as that of tho fspbinv
"Leave my home, sir," sho said at last,
rising and pointing to tho door, with a
very line dramatic action. Auger is

man than tn a small one unless Mic
gets red in the face.

some better reasons for the stand you
tako m this turner.
"I have told 011 once she is en

1 don 1 believe it, I said boldly.
though perhaps ruilclv; but my lovely
Julia was rellected in a distant mirror,
smiling at me and shaking her head,
and 1 was reckless. Mrs, Jupp gasped
and if a magnified glanco from her
glaring eyes could havo killed me I
would havo died on thu spot.
Mr. Juicenon, it my son wcro
"Confound your son 1" said I. I
really used a much stronger word, for
getting for the moment whero I was.
1 am not quite certain what hit mc,
but think it was a footstool, as I after
ward found a gilded claw common to
that article of furniture in my coat
pocket. A man servant, whom I had
often fed in other days, picked 1110 iij
and escorted mo to tho door, murmur
ing sympathetically tho whilo that ''To
bo sure, Mrs. Jupp was a lectle uncer
tain at times." Uncertain I There is
nothing uncertain about her. I am a
small man, and a tremendous bump on
my forehead is conspicuous, nor is one
black oyo becoming to any one; so I
slunk down tho street like a criminal,
vowing vengeance against tho old ty
rant in ptticoats, who only wanted
Julia to marry her son in order to keep
her in tho family, for Julia was quito
an heiress, though of course that fact
had no weight with mo.
Business of somo kind had brought
Mrs. Jupp to St. Paul, and there sho
took a house and established herself
with her lovely niece for tho Winter,
fn tho first stages of my acquaintance
I was of much service to tho lady and
ran about and did her miserable er
rands for her liko a born idiot. I also
had every opportunity of falling in lovo
with her niece, and this I did as rapid
ly as possible aud with such success
that in two months from their arrival
I announced our engagement to her
aunt with tho above described result,
though it must bo understood that I
havo only given the termination of
my negotiations tho preliminaries bo
iug tamo and uninteresting. Tho next
day I spent in my room trying experi
ments with raw beef us applied to a
black eye, and nursing various schemes
of veugeanco and tho lump on my
forehead at tho same t!mc.
Tho day following I ventured down
to my ollice, and from thero sent an
impassioned note to my darling Julia
a note filled with despair, vows of
eternal love and appropriate quotations.
My nolo was returned by the grinning
ofllce-boy, who said tho old lady had
opened it in his presenco and roid it
aloud, and told him to take it back to
that littlo fool meaning mo and
added that sho would box his tho
said boy's oars if he ever brought
another, puring the day a friend
called lu, and, alter soino stupid drivel
which almost drove mo crazy, said,
apropos of nothing: "Hy tho way, I
called on tho Juiips last night. Old
lady says they leavo hero Saturday
and aro going to straight to Kurope.

Wo were in tho height of tho much-talked-of

pealed in tho uniform of tho club to

that my legs, particularly tho lower
half of them, clad in red stockings,

my person, which was much enlarged
by tho blanket bu'u, sa'sh, etc. As to
my feet, thoy had nover looked so
largo and clumsy, and I was distrusted
at tho effect.
The first tiling 1 did was to go to a

to do with a fast team, a good sloigh
and an inlolliceut driver ono who

then got my toboggan and started
for tho slide, whero 1 found hundreds
of people already congregated, some
looking on, others dashing down tho
hill at railroad speed, ono toboggan
loiiowing another as last as they could
manage. It was a long slide, over a
mile in length, and a walk back to tho
Btarting point was a slow and tedious
I drew my toboggan on ono hido

The meddlesome Mrs. Smith-Jones was

gether and sho glanced about her with
tho self conscious nir of ono who has a
duty to perform and is icady for it at

18M tno year which ruined tho for
tunes of tho great Napoleon. Ono of
his ancestors, Nathaniel Tilden. was
Mayor of the oity of Tenterden, Kent,
England, in 1623. Ho was succeeded
in that ollice by his cousin John, ns ho
nad ueen piecuiled by his uiiulo John
in l."8.j and 1G00. Ho removed with
his family to Scituate, in the colony of

sisters married a brother of Governor
Wmslow, and another a son of Gover
Governor Tilden's grandfather. John

The Governor's mother was descended
from William Jones, Lieutenant-Gov
ernor ot tho colony of New Haven.
who in all tho history of (Jonncctiout
is represented to havo been tho son of
Colonel John Jones, ono of tho regic'u'o
judges of Charles I., who is said to
havo married a sister of Oliver Crom
well and a cousin of John Hamnden.
Tho Governor's father, a farmer and
merchant of New Lebanon, was a man
of notcblo judgment and practical
sense and the accepted oraclo of tho
country upon all matters of publio con
cern, whilo his opinion was also eager
ly sought and justly valued by all his
neighbors, but bv none more than bv
the lato President Van Buren, who till
his death, was one of ins mo3t cherish-
1 intimate and personal friends.
From his father Governor Tilden in
herited a taste for political innuiries.
and in his companionship enjoyed
peculiar opportunities for acquiring an
enrly familiarity with the bearings of
the various questions which agitated
our country in his youth.
Young Tilden entered collego in his
I81I1 year. Tho fall of 1802, when ho
was to enter college, was rendered
memorable by tho second selection of
General Jackson to tho Presidency and
Martin Van Buren to tlio Vico Presi-
ency of tho United States, and of
William'L. Marcv.to tho Goveruorshin
ot tho State o New York. In that
contest an effort was mado to effect a
coalition between the National Repub
licans and tlio anti-MaBons. Tho suc
cess of tho Democracy depended upon
tho defeat of that coalition. Samuel
heard tho subject discussed in tho fam
ily, and was especially impiessed by
what fell from tho lips of an uncle who
deplored his inability to "wreak his
thoughts upon expression." Samuel
disappeared for two or three days, and
in tho seclusion of his chamber pro
ceeded to set down tho viows ho had
gathored upon tho subject, and in duo
timo brought the result to his father, at
onco tho most appreciative nnd the
least indulgent critic of his acquaint
ance. Tho father was so highly pleased
with tlio paper that ho took Iuh son to
seo Mr. Van Buren, then nt Lebanon
Springs, to read it to him. Thoy
found so much merit in tho perform
ance that thoy decided it should bo
published with tho signatures of a
dozen or more leading Democrats and
it shortly appeared in tho Albany Argus
as an addiess, occupying a half pago
of that print, aud from which it was
copied into most of tho Democratic
papers of tho State. The J-Jeenitig
Journal paid it tho compliment of at-
tributing it to tho pen of Mr. Van
liurcn, and the Albany Aryus paid it
tho greater compliment of stating "by
authority" Unit Mr. Van Bureau was
not tho author.
Mr. Tilden had not been long at
Yolo Collego boforo his health gavo
way and obliged him to leave. After
somo rest ho wns onnbled to routine
his studies, nnd in 1831 entered tho
University of Now York, whero he
completed his ncademio education. Ho
then entered tho law ofllco of tho lato
John W. Edmunds, iu tho city of New
York, whero ho enjoyed peculiar facili
ties for tho prosecution of his favorito
studies of law and politics.
Upon his admission to the bar Mr.
Tilden opened an oflico in Pino atroot,
in tlio city ot Now York.
In 1811, in anticipation nnd prepa
ration for tlio election whicli resultod
in making James K. Po'.k President
and Silas Wright Governor of tho State
ot Now iork, Mr. Tilden in connect
ion with John L. O'Sullivan, founded
tho newspaper called tho Daily News,
lu tho fall of 1815 ho was sent to
tho assembly from tho city of Now
York and whilo n member of that body
wns elected to tho convention for tho
remodelling of tho Constitution of tl.o
Stnto, which was to commonco its
sessions a few weeks after tho legisla
ture adjourned, lu both of tlitso
bodies Mr. Tilden was a conspicuous
authority, nnd lelt n permanent im
pression upon tho legislation of tho
year, aud espooially upon nil tho new
constitutional provisions affecting tho
flu aiiocs of tho Stnto and the manage
ment of Its system of canals.
Ho built up a reputation in n few
years at the bar of New York city
which gave him a loadiug jilaoo in tho
