" Yes, I'll do it. Ralph, even if she is a
scraggy, worthless, hairless, dried up, yel
low, vinegar-faced old maid. I'll marry
her: or, rather, her fortune!" and so say
ing he leaned himself back in his chair,
and commenced pulling away as coolly at
his cigar as though tharryipy were the
most comumnplaco, uninteresting affair
ever dreamed of.
`• You speak quite confidently, young
man. — returned his companion. " perhaps

" Fiddlesticks! I glass in uncle's for

New York belles, and I amt certain now
that my ' great expectations ' have pass
ed away, there isn't Iwo of them ever re
member associating with me. I tell you,
- Ralph, love is all moonshine! a mere crea
ture of the fancy—for I never seen a pretty
girl yet that could set my heart a palpi
tating. Money is what a poor brielless
lawyer like myself wants, not love; it's
a great deal more substantial, too."
Don't doubt it; but I wouldn't be tied
to all Old VIXVII for a consideration, — IT
spondtql Ralph, "and in my opinion,
Bart. you are a fool if you heave yourself
away. There, now, that advice is free
gratis—no fee asked--only do tell ine the
I can do that in few words. About a
week ago I saved a tine looking but gouty
old gentleman from being upset out of his
carriage on Broadway. Ile was profuse
in his thanks, learned my name, said he
knew me by reputation, told me he was
very wealthy, with but one child, a daugh
ter, and if I would run down to Sea View,
where he intended to pass a few weeks, lie
would make a match between me and her.
I modestly suggested that the lady in
question might object, but he insisted that
she could not; she was devoted to him
and heart-whole. There it is, rer-batim,
I then made inquiries of a friend what
kind of a girl Mr. Lafourn's daughter
was, and they told me she was a scraggy
old maid. I have her in my mind's eye,
but it's no drawback. I'll marryforlioncy,
and let her afterward take to her cats, just
the same as she does now, That's all. I
am too lazy to work." And he relapsed
into a profound silence, wondering secret
ly what time on the morrow Mr. Lafourn
and daughter would arrive.
There, pa, you dear old goose, listen
to the descriptions of your Nell;" exclaim
ed pretty little Nellie Lafourn, arranging
the curtains so that the old gentleman
could overhear the conversation on the
piazza between the two young gentlemen
"Confound his impudence," growled
the old man, in a rage, bringing his cane
down lustily; I'd like to see the wretch,
get my money, even if he has got you
mixed up with your aunt Lucille!"
"Slightly- mixed up, isn't it, pa? But
after all how much the picture is like
her;'' and she burst into a merry little
laugh, that caused a dozen dimples to
play hide and seek around her cheeks and
" He may be blessed ! I'll send for him
this moment, and cane
him !" almost shouted the irate old gentle
"No, indeed, you won't, pa ! you let
me manage him, won't you, pa? Let him
come—let him imagine Lucille is your
daughter and heiress, and I your niece,
with 'no expectations.' We'll see how he
will carry himself."
On the next day Mr. Albertin Gower
waited upon Mr. Lafourn, and was for
mally introduced to Miss Lucille Gower.
Ile inquired after the old gent's health
very affectionately, and soon became quite

that wav started; hut secretly he was eye
ing his intended bride, and he confe a to
himself that the enthusiastic descriptions
he had given his friend Ralph did not
belie her, or scarcely do her,justice. But
just thou the door opened, and a graceful
young lady, with a great abundance of
golden curls and very large brown eyes,
" My— my niece, Mr. Gower; Mr. (low
er, Miss Lee," observed Mr. Lafourn, and
Miss Lee acknowledged it with a slight
but nevertheless graceful bow.
Mr. (lower was enraptured, and the
contrast only made his bride-expectant
more ridiculous; however, he determined
to act his part, and, as a chance presented
itself, he whispered in modulated tones to
Miss Lucille that "he hoped to become
better acquainted with her," though he
hated himself for it in three minutes after,
when be saw Miss Lee's mischief-looking
eyes resting upon him, and realized that
she had heard him too.
I /ay after day he called, and proportion
ally he tll in love with laughing Nell, and
fell out with Miss Lucille, while she be
came, in appearance, desperately enamor
ed of him ; and wrote him poetry by the
sheet expressing her "everlasting affec
tion," which he assured his friend Ralph,
she meant to mean the oldness of her love,
for he was stlre she was invented in No
In vain In' tried to make love to Nell.
She accepted no attentions front "her
cousin lover," so she mockingly assured
him, and h'it him more despairing than
t last could not endure it any long
er. and accordingly sought an interview
with Ms. Lacourn.
• • tio you come to propose for m,}• daugh
ter. Mr. Gr ower?•' queried the gentleman,
was ushered in.
" No, I have not," he eimiliatically re
turned. " I have come to make a confes
sion, to ask your forgiveness, and crave a
boon. You know bow you eante to make
me tlw offer you did'? Well, having been
brought up to believe myself independent,
and to study a profession more for pleas
ure than aught else, after finding myself
suddenly bereft, of all hopes, and poor,
gladly accepted your proposal. I scorned
the lam of love; I vowed I loved may case
hotter than any wmnan on earth, and
though I NV:lf , informed your daughter
was was ---"
"A scraggy old maid," slyly interposed
Mr. Lafourn, and Bart blushed at his own
remark, but proceeded—
" I determined provided she Would ac
cept me, to marry ho• for ,lour money.--
Titer., sir. is the truth, and 1 know I can
not but be lowered in your estimation.
Since then I have met your niece, and
-• Fallen in love with her," obAcryed the
father aiding hint along.
" Yes, sir, exactly so; and I'm willing
it' will have me, to give up all ideas of
wealth obtained by such a mean practice,
and go away and work bravely for her.
Ito you think there is any hope? Will you
thr , ive Inc?
Certainly," he responded promptly.
•' I should tea want my daughter wedded
to any man for such mercenary motives.
I'll call Nell and see what she says." And
suiting the action to the word, he sum
.. This gentleman has withdrawn his
claim to vimr cousin's hand," he observed,
taking Nellie by the hand, "and actually
has the audacity to ask tbr yours. Shall
I tell him?"
"And I'm poor, Nellie," ejaculated
Bart, •• but you shall see I'm no conceited

Nellie looked at her father through her

"And all the dearer if you are not
worth working for, you are not worth
If then,•' she returned slyly, "you
wait a yeah• and do not change your mind,
"Which he will lie,” interrupted the
gentleman, mid so it was settled.
The ruse was still kept up. Mr. La
fourn gave letters of introduction to sev
eral influential friends, and he went away
and set up work in earnest. For a while
he was unsuccessful; at last he began to
be appreciated, and he was on a fair way
to prosperity. At the end of the year he
wrote and told Mr. Lafourn how he had
succeeded, and asked if he had any ob
jections to his wedding taking place then.
The required answer was returned, and
when he arrived he found his Nellie pret
tier than ever. Mr. Lafourn said nothing,
and Hart wondered at his giving such a
costly wedding to his niece; but when he,
as the bride's father, gave her away he
was entirely dumbfounded. As soon as
the ceremony was over he rushed to his
"What does it mean?"
`• It means you have married my daugli

"and we have been deceiving you all the
while. Lucille is my maiden sister.''
Bart was paralyzed.

and I overheard your conversation, and
determined to test you. We did so, and
Nellie still insisted on your being tried,
" You have made a man of me," he ex
claimed, abruptly. " You hare taken The
conceit out of me."
But though rich he did not leave his
profession and enter into his careless, idle
life again; he steadly pushed his way up,
and now is one of the most influential
men of the times which he always avers
is more due to Nellie's stratagem than
"Marrying a fortune."
