My Mysterious :Sitter.
" Mr. (kaham ?" said a sweet vo t ife
impiringly at tile door of my stu dio
early •one 'fair Spring morning in / the
;.ear of giacelB7o. .I looked/ nil ,in
ast,drish ment, for a visit at eight l i
o'clock, - Was unknown to my estato•
lishment,and , my servant' had gone
out to get \my breakfast,. so that
my visitor had found, her way up
!Auks without spy assistance, and
stood on the threshold of my door,
When I lookedi sa* a young girl
dressed in mourning, simply indeed,
but elegantly, and so• evidently •a
lady that Illy surprise increased as I
rose, bowed, and intimated\ that I
was Mr. Graham. She boived in
answer, and as she .stood in ailence
Tor a minute, I glanced at' -her
and saw that. it was one of
beauty. Large dark eyes, with long
fringes casting a shadow on her fair
rounded cheek, a pretty nose, perfect
mouth, exquisite contour of. face,
brilliant complexion, and sunny
brown hair, and looking at her from
a p:ofessional point of view; I Said
" Ye gods and goddesses, what .3 •
model!" • •
" i want you to paint me." she
said after a. slight , pause, speaking
simply, but with a little constraint;
"not a picture—a small miniature.
can you—will you ?"
" 1 shall be very happy,"- I answer
ed, in matter-ot fact
,manner to re
lieve her evident , embarrassment. -
" At what hour it be convenient
for you to . sit?"-
" At eight o'clock itvery Thursday
and Saturday," she answered color

THE WONDERLAND OF MONTANA.—
A correspondent, ' writing - from -the --'
National Park,, on the Yellowst9ne, ' .
says: -For the past three days we
have been reveling in - the wonders
of this . Plutonic region.. On every - .
side we have had springs hot , and
cold, clear and muddy ; mountains of ..\
pure sulphur, geysers-throwing water/ -
two hundred and fifty feet high, of ,
all shapes, sizes and variations
Right -here, within two hundred ._
yards, the thing varies , a little, _for - ,
in4ead of water oozing from mounds .
Wilt up by sedimentary depOSits of ,
ages, _ they ,are funnel-like caldrona
fifty feet from the - surface. - There is
one that, lOoking down - into it, tip._
pears to be—and I think is—a sub
terranean river. It is as wide as the ,
Boise - River, and the bubbling, seeth
ing noise it kicks hp- is alniost terri
fying. It is very muddy, , and from
the appearance of the trees for five i
hundred yards around, and the wet
ness'of the surface, it mast occasion
slly spout to an immense height. Not
far away, at wliat appears to be the
entianee of a cavern, is another boil- .
mg spring 1 - le the other: rolling out
in waves from a' vast hole. It is
scalding hot, beautifully clear, but •
very sulpurous. Tile rocks around
the entrance are covered with. a soft
sediment of various dark,' brilliant
colors, on which nisiny,names are_ "
written. Of course, we ,added ours.
