THE BACHELOR'S WAGER.
" Why don't you marry,
" Marry!" was the answer,
made in the most contemptuous
manner, accompanied by a tilt
of the chair to allow his slipper
ed feet to rest comfortably on
Yes, marry. I'm sure you
want a wife. You are making
ducks and drakes of your in
come, wasting so much in
housekeeping. Housekeeping !
The idea of any old bachelor
keeping house !"
" Why not ? Hanalah
makes me very comfortable."
" Comfortable ! Look at
this room. Everything in the
wrong place, dust an inch
thick, and not one of the pretty
fixins with which women beau
tify a room at trifling expense.
Then you fairly support Han
nah's family, if I may judge by
the quantity 01 provisions,
clothes and fuel she smuggles
out of the gate."
Down came the chair, feet
and all, and the bachelor, who
was tall, handsome, and yet on
the bright side of forty, stood
up before his little cousin, who
was flinging home truths so
lavishly in his face.
" Fact, Joe ; I've seen her do
it. Now, a wife -would make
this housekeeping all straight.
Now, do marry, coz ; I want
you to get 'a real nice wife."
" Where is she to be forma ?"
" Well, let me see." And
the little beauty knitler brow
and looked as much puzzled as
if the name of the person pro
posed had not been on the tip
of her tongue for the last hour.
Let nie see! Oh ! I know
" What ! Meta Snow, the
most extravagant girl in the
village ? Now, if you had said
Mary Wriglit, who dresses
simply, and has her house fur
nished so neatly and plainly, I
might have consented but Me
ta Snow—why, her dresses and
bonnets would cost a fortune,
not to mention the expensive
furniture she delights in. No
chairs, sofas or curtains but em
broidered ones suit her, and
oh ! worst of all, she spends
half her time reading trashy
magazines. Meta Snow !" and
Joseph Harris sank back in
his chair utterly overpowered
with the magnitude of the very
"So Meta's extravagance is
the objection ?"
" Well, yes ; she is pretty,
intelligent, lively, accomplish
ed ; but, you know, Jennie, my
brother's experience makes me
dread an extravagant wife. I
think he owed his downfall en
tirely to Margaret's love of
jewels, fine clothes, and expen
sive furniture. I am not
" Indeed, you are not, Joe."
" But I know 'what a weight
on a man's energies an extrav
agant wife is."
" Then, if I can prove Meta
Snow the most economical girl
in the village, and that she
spends less in one year than
Mary Wright in six months,
you will give me a new cousin
—your wife ?"
" Yes, but I'll bet a
dozen pair of kid gloves and a
new bracelet against a smoking
cap—mine, you know, is very
shabby—that you will fail."
" Done ! Come and spend
this evening with me. Good
And away went Jennie Har
ris, on " matrimonial schemes
The evening found Joe early
at his cousin's. To tell the
truth, Meta Snow's pretty face
and winning manners had won
the bachelor's heart long be
fore, but her apparently expen
sive habits frightened back the
offers on the tip of his tongue,
and he was willing enough to
pay the wager, could it be but
" Now, Joe," said Jennie,
meeting him at the door, " I'm
going to hide you, and have a
little talk with the girls, to
which you must listen. If you
are here I should not like to
ask all the questions I intend
to, and they might be shy of
" Play eavestpper, Jen
" Exactly ; it is fair in such
a case. Hark ! The bell !
There they are ! In this closet,
" But, Jennie—"
" Hush ! You win a wife or a
smoking-cap, anyhow. Go
And, with a parting push,
Jennie then locked the closet
Joe, forced now to comply,
sat down in the large closet, on
a stool considerately provided
for the purpose, put his eye to
a hole in the panel, and took a
survey of the visitors just en
tering. After this he, with a
shrug of his shoulders, placed
his ear where his eye had been.
The young ladies, both pret
ty, were dressed in very differ
ent styles. Meta wore a light
blue silk, with flounces, bre
telles of velvet, and a pretty
head dress of blue ribbons on
her luxuriant light hair. Ma
ry was attired in a pearl color
ed silk, made perfectly plain,
with a rich lace collar and
sleeves, and her dark hair in
simple braids, with gold head-
ed pins s at the back. .
Jennie opened her batteries
at once, ‘`
" What a pretty dress, Me-
" Ain't it ? I made it to-
" Made ?"
"Oh ! yk4:, J make all my
own dresses ; ins quite a sav
" I should think it would be,
my dressmaker's bills are enor
mous," said Mary. " I won't
have my dresses made any
where bilt in Philadelphia, and
it costs a small fortune."
"My patterns come' from
there," said Meta. " Jennie,
I am making you a head dress
like mine. Do you like it ?"
Yes, thank you, very
It is niade out of the ribbon
I had on my last blue dress. I
got a receipt for renovating old
ribbons, last week, and tried it.
Iv bretelles are of the same."
I thought it was bran new,"
said Mary. " What an. eco
nomical girl you are, Meta."
" I heard Meta called extrav
agant, to-day," she said, " come
Meta, deny the charge and
prove it false."
" I think I can, without any
vanity," said Meta. " Father
is not rich, and since my moth
er died I have learned to be
economical. I make all 'my
own clothes, bonnets, cloaks
and dresses included, and em
broider my collars and sleeves."
" What!" cried Mary ;
" those elegant collars and
sleeves you wear ? Why, I
have often said that although
mine cost me so much, they do
not compare with yours."
"It is pretty work to take
out when my hands would oth
erwise be idle," said Meta.
" See, I have one here. I will
work as I defend myself.
Then, Jennie, I make many of
father's things—his dressing
gowns, underclothes. slippers—
and embroider seats for all the
worn out chairs and scfas.
Our parlor furniture got very
shabby, and we could not af
ford to refurnish ; but the cur

" Oh, I make them, and they
cost very little, Then father
likes a good table, and I have
learned to be • quite a cook. I
put up all our preserves and
pickles, make the cake, and
provide new dishes constant
" Mercy !" cried Mary ;
" why, the preserves, pickles
and cake alone, at our house,
costs us a mint of money."
" But, Meta," said Jennie,

this ? I was informed that you

What's that ?' cried Mary
and Meta, both at once.
Only my cousin Joe. Come

' But what, was he doing
there ?' asked Meta.
'Eating my preserve s,' said
Jennie, giving her cousin a

repeated. She defended you
at the time, and shut me up
here to convince me what a

whisper to Jennie, the bracelet
and the gloves- shall be sent
here in the morning.'
I forgive you,' said Meta,
'Nary,' said Jennie, come

moment, I want to show you a

thoughtless and rude habits to

But let the family intercourse

We saw him last late in the

you knew where he was, and
with whom he associated.
Dear. friend, do not be so close

to your household, if you do
not bring proper parental re

you, but you must do most.
