THE FATEJF A NINNY.
BY RICHAUD rK.NWICK.
My sister glared at me like a tiger.
It was after ilintier on a summer after,
noon, while I was tranquilly smoking
in a cool, sli.nly, pretty arlior, and
feeling like anything but a contact
with my quick-witted relative.
"Mr; Kugoo Barnard, I tliink-you
are really a ninny. You know she
likos you, you know cho is beautiful,
you know she is kind, gentle mid very
ftfTectionate ; you know her brothers,
her sisters, her father, and her mother
all like you; you know she has as
much if not more property than you
have; you know you in condition to
marry, and still you seem to forget her
altogether. I declare, it is a shame!"
"My darling inou?e," I rejoined,
"there is an obstacle."
"An obstacle ! an obstacle !" she re
turned, highly indignant. "And what
if there is an obstacle? That is one
half tho delight of love, sir!"
"Your delight, no doubt. But mine
is too serious to bo laughed at; really
"Any pray, sir, may I ask what is
"My obstacle, ia two fearful words,
is a man."
My respected sister drew herself up,
stared straight at mo for a minute,
breathed fiercely like a pairof black
smith's bellows, sighed a long sigh of
contempt, despair, sorrow and objura
tion, and then stalked solemnly out of
the room, and forboro to look at me
fur twenty-four hours.
The yotitg person under considera
tion was an exceedingly handsome
girl, whom I had met several times,
but who,' I frankly confess, I did not
think had the bad taste to take any
particular interest in nie. I, privately,
liked lu;r very muoli indued, and . wua
overwhelmed with joy at the particu
lar statement of my sister, vho indica
ted a reciprocal fancy for mo. But
there was an obstacle without doubt,
and that obstacle a man, as I had
Now this man was a fierce ugly-tcm-pered
fellow, though handsome, and
was intelligent enough to be consider
able of a power in the large colony of
cotton weavers in the town where he
was tho overseer of a mill of great di
mensions. I had experienced his ill
fuvor on the two occasions when I had
casually paid visits to Miss Ma'.is and
her parents, nud was given to under
stand that he considered himself a suit
or for her hand.and was accustomed to
ho violently jealous of any one whom
he chose to imagine a rival.
Fired by tho intelligence, that I
should be more than wejeome in the
house of tho Malices, I of course paid
little attention to the past scowls of
this dragon, and made up my mind to
go immediately down to her home in
tho country, and to lay regular siege
to her hand.
At this particular time there hap
pened to bo' to bo innumerable trade
riots and disturbances throughout the
cottou towns, and especially in War
wick, where I was about to go, and 1
beheld tho name of Devon (my antag
onist) mentioned in the papers a man
particularly uetive in the interest of
tlio operatives against some new regu
lations which were being uiado iu tlio
mills. I do not, to this day, know
what theso regulations were, or what
awakened such violent opposition to
them ; und I am only aware that the
promoters of the new ideas were in ex
tremely ill-favor wilh tho operative,
and that, in many eases, personal vio
lence bad been ued to get thein from
This however, had in my mind very
liltle to do with Miss Malis, or my vis
it to her town, and so I went, as I
planned, much to tho delight of this
sister of mine, who instantly began
making estimates for a house of fearful
dimensions, which was to be occupied
at an early day by mo and mine. 1
descended at the station of Warwick
und looked about me. Tho first per
son I beheld as ho stood with a group
of hungry cotton-spinners (eyeing all
who catuo by tho train with savage
looks of suspicion), was this self-same
Devon, who scowled at mc and follow
ed me with his eyes.
I thought little of it, and drove to
tlio only hotel of the place, notieiug,
as I went, 'hat crowds of men wero
abroad, singing ami ho,tin, that many
in that Faith let us to tho end,
of the shops were closed, and that the
place had the appearance of indulging
in a rather disorderly holiday.
I instantly went to the Malise.", a
good two miles into the country, and
was there received with all becoming
warmth which could bo shown to a
man not yet in the family, yet who
might be heartily welcomed if he chose
to be one of them. She (Miss Mai is)
was lovely. Bhe was rather a tallish
girl, finely proportioned and strong. I
mention this, ns it appears hcrafier in
a rather extraordinary way. I was
pressed to carry my luggage up to
their house, but as I observed that
thero was a great deal cf company
present, I refrained from doing so.
I threw myself headlong at Miss
Mali.", iu the midst of tho kind smiles
of the people about, and I am happy
say, Miss Malis was weak enough to
throw herself lu-adlong at me. There
was no boldness about it. I approach
ed her frankly, and she frankly receiv
ed mc, without any further ado.
There were walks in the garden, a
niee tea, and then more walks in the
garden, and thero happened to be a
We could hear tho shouts of men
in tho villiage, and some distant roars
as if there was some street contest go
ing on, Misi Malis grew white and
clung to my arm.
"Oh, how frightful ! And you must
go among them to-night? Cannot it
be prevented ? I wish it might !" Here
she burst into tears, which I gloated
over and endeavored to double by
assuring her that nothing could pre
"But at least go armed, won't you,
please? Please do. I will givo jou'a
revolver of mine ; it is a pretty toy,
and not only a toy, but it will shoot, I
know, for I once killed a dear little
pet pttppy with it. Ho ran mad and
was biting all the fowls in tho' barnyard-
Now you will be careful and
take it won't you ?"
I gallantly replied: "No, Miss Emi
ly ; my best inducement to bo careful
is my hope to sco you to-morrow."
She looked at me and laughed a lit
tle, but I always felt that we became
much nearer to each other from from
I parted from the family at a quar
ter past eleven, and from her at a puar
ter to twelve. It was a parting to be
remembered. She again pressed he
revolver upon mc, but I declined it on
the same grounds as before and went
I walked for full a mile, one-half
tho distance, and pissed through a
wood. ' As I was leaving a man spoke
to ine from aer.ss the way, and ap
proached me. lie was rather civil in
his manner, and tool; oil' his hat and
gave me a strap of paper. I lighted
a match und read it. It contained a
single word "Leave."
I looked up. The man was gone. I
called to him, but got no reply. I
rumpled the paper up, and threw it
away, diviuing instantly what induced
the note, and who was tho author of it.
I of course took uo notice of it, oth
er than to keep my eyes about me, and
cyntiaued in my lodgings, where I
stayed, as I intended.
Tho streets, in the morning, seemed
to be much more disturbed than on the
night belbre. Mom men were about,
and were much more uoisy und quarrel
some than on yetenlay. I descended
to the street at eleven o'clock, ami was
instantly approached by a tall fellow
with sleeves rolled up and a paper cap
ou his head, llo grtidiy demanded:
"Be ye goiti' to leave V
I told him no; that I had no such
intention, und turned my back on him
and walked av.ay to the Malises. I
found them all grave and mysterious,
and Emma was a little pale. Hhe
drew ino aside, and said that they were
forbidden to entertain reformers ut the
pain of having their hoti:e eud proper
ty lired upon their heads. 1 iiuiautly
set about quitting tho house, but tho
old gentleman met mo in the hall, ner
veous and excited. .
"My dear boy, you shall not stir a
step. You are uo reformer. I know
they havo been misinformed; but if
you wero forty reformers, they shou,d
not induce ono to leave. Therefore,
I would not think of it, however,
and I hurried awuy to find the fellow

soon satisfied myself that he was not
in the place, and drove to a villgo ten

and exciting them violently with his

a skow of indignation, and again re
peated his order to leave the town be
fore night. I prompily knocked him
He floundered about, and I left the
place. Tt was a clowdy day, and was
dark when I returned to Warwick.
Emily was in the parlor of tho hotel,
and she ran to me wilh clasped hands.
' Oh, Eugene, Eugeue!" (You see
ehc called me Eugene now.) "Thank
Heaven ! Oh, how I have trembled for
you. Wc have been in torscnts of fear.
They have been looking for you high
and low, and are very savage and fierce.
Now, Eugeue, I know you're not a
coward at ail but really, Eugene"
The short of it was, that she wished
mo to go away. It was plain enough
that I could have more solicitudo for
her family and her peace of mind than
I had reason to remain on account of
my own personal ideas of bravery, and
so it was. J assented, but told her I
I wished to go to her father and warn
him of what Devon had throated, add
then would go. I also bogged her to
go to my house, back to the city, where
she would find the warmest welcome
from my sister, who was her closest
most intimate friend. Sho assented,
and I set out for tho Malises in midst
of many prayers from Emily to be al
lowed to go with inc. She had her
ridiculous little- pistol by her still,
and aimed it at many imaginary foes
by way of showing how easily I might
ilf&ncl mj-oclf Rgainol loglen, hut I
would not tako it.
I went ou my journey in safety. I
found Malis, Senior, at med to the teeth,
with all tho children and ladies dis
tributed between garret and cellar. He
was a little vexed at my going atvay,
as ho understood tho reason well
enough. But my object was not so
much to tell him of Devon as to ask
permission to pay my attentions to
Miss Emily. As I fully expected, the
kind old man shook me by the bund, and
declared that I made him extremely
happy. I set out ou my return. I com
pleter! tho woods, and was emerging
from the shade, when I was fired upon
from the bushes. It was blinding and
stunning. I felt my hat twitch, uud I
took it off and felt of it. It had two
bullet-holes, two inches above my head.
1 dashed into the bushes, when two
men broke cover and rushed upon mo.
They seized me, and we struggled buck
into tho road they trying to throw
mo down, and I trying tog.'t my arms
free. It was quite drk, and wo fought
gallantly, when, like flashes of light
uing, two streams of light shot dowa,
two sharp cracks were heard, and my
principal assailant fell. The other was
iustautly seized from behind with as
perfect a garrotte aj ever was, and was
half strangled in a second.
By Jove, it was Emily I Sho had
followed mo wilh her pop-un. A
broken arm for No. 1, au l a severe
foretaste of his mode of death for No.
2 was the result.
Hhe fell into my willing arms, and
of course fainted, the gem!
No. 2 turned out to be Dnvon, in all
his wickedness, and both were taken in
charge by ti. j military, who arrived in
town next day.

eight sons, all now grown up to man

Madison, Wis., in fact, the family were

father's family gave him up as lost to

when his name WU3 mentioned it was
as referring to tho memory of the dead.
In 18C4 the family removed to this
place, where all but one son now re

Last summer Charles attempted to

they could recall nothing about him
that was natural. In tho meantime,

scanned the new claimant upon his pa

a single lineament of his feature:-', and
was inclined to think t lie young man
an impostor; yet tho latter mentioned
many things that occurred during the
boyhood days. At last the father says:
"Do you remember our oi l horse,
'Jack?'" "I do," ssid Charley, and
described his color. "Well," cays the
father, "was there anything peculiar
about Jack?" "Yes," says Charley,
"he would never carry double."

The London News says: Marrying
and giving in marriago are such char
acteristic occupations of society that
they probably went on within the walls
of starving Metz, and we know that
they are going on within the walls of
belengured Pari.".. There is, however,
a certain definite relation between the
prosperity of the people. Even Eng
lish men and women, as a rule, only
marry when they have something live
to on, and in hard times they put off
their weddings tiil they aro better oil'.
Duriug the depression of commerce
the marriages declined, and it is one
proof of reviving trade that during
the spring of this year tho number of
marriages rose as nearly as possible to
tho usual average.
During the quarter ending June GO,
thero were nearly lO.Oirt) morejiersons
married than in the first months of the
year. Tho number cf weddings in
April, May and June was 43,701 tin
average of a little more than fiOO a day.
