Thus it was that Centend took the j cf us boy, and in a few months led the class like an old tell wether. With me alone, h-jweyer, he was really on as intimate foot ing. I was his chum, and had it not been for tally education, which had given rry mind a strong bias. I might have been led into trouble by the association. In all bis naoiu sna thoughts Lcntend was a gentle- . 1 j . i - ' . , orderly, bnt his judgment on the subject of texpen.se never underwent chance, arid bis I decrees as to what every one should wear, . buy, anI spend were fixed by his own ex ! perience, and immutable. Many were the amicable discussions that topk place between Paul and me, on this ble as it was "delightful.

It was iir'Jojible to j stay away without giving offence, and I had j therefore made this sacrifice to society, but ; not without a pang. Paul took the gloves frorr1 me, turned thm cooly over, and handed them back with a contemptuous shrug. '"Cheap and nasty, I see," said he.lsugh i;ig.

Also about this time my father died, leaving an unsullied name behind Lira, and a prop erty that, divided betwea tea children. cave each of them So,000. All my brothers were now settled, most of them in a distant part of our country, and my only sister, a pretty little creature of nineteen, was claimed by me as her eldi3r brother, and head of th? family.

Ink-ed the snug dwelling which so comfortably contained my household goods, my dear little Susie, and my still more charming Caroline, was in itself nothing re markable, but to my e5-?s the abode of hap piness and luxury. As it chanced, aboct two months after my marriage. I met, accidently. my friend Paul Centend in the street not far from my own houe, looking Ar lodgines after a prolonged tour in Kurope. Never was a friend more affectionately greeted than I ; never did my heart respond more warmly to Centend's kindly interest I invitei him immediately $o my house and promised ) im unlimited hospitality from my wife an 1 sister.

Jack, and give me tLe best advice as to what I shall do :" and here Paul, relying on my fa'thtul friendship, gave me a Jong account of his financial dif ficulties, for, having spent nearly two-thirds of his capi'al, his means were entireh' too limited to suit bis ideas as to what was ab solutely necessary for a gentleman's decent appearance. At this turn of proceedings my wife and sister suddenly entered the room. They had been out shopping together, and as they came into the parlor, animated and bloomy, ing, I thought I tad never seen two more lovely or elegant women. That the srme idea had occurred to Con tend struck me immediately as he rose to be formally introduced. A look, which I knew to be one cf pleasure end surprise, lit up his fine features, and rendered his fasci nating manners more prononcet than ever. Centend stayed to dinner that day, and ate his beefsteak off English china with such a relish that "I wondered as I gazed." Per heps. however, the flavor was rendered tol erable by the presence of the ladies, who, being easy in their manners, lively in their conversation, and. above all, attractive in appearance, made the meal pass, for me at least, like a banquet of the gods. When Paul left that evening, he squeezed my hand long and hard. '"Well, by Jove 'my dear Jack," he said, "I believe you have the best of it, after all. I can't say -tt.at 1 admire your choice of houses cr furoiture.butyour taste in women is without fault- Your Caro-Iina is hand some enough for a duchess, and thatlittl blue eyed sifter pf yotirs is as lovely as an tcgeL "I wish I were a rich man,", he ad ded, with a great sigh, "then I could be happy too, and marry for Ipve." ".No, no, that can't be thought of" said I, laughing. "lou can't afford to marry for lave. Make; np to some heiress who wants somebody to help her spend her mon ey. That is the course for you. my dear fellow, and the sooner it is done the better it will be for your pst ket." I went back to. the parlor, much pleased with my friend's visit. C.-.roIine and Susie had already taken Paul into their good graces, and the warm interest I had so Ion felt for my old school-mate was soon shared by both these sympathetic women. But alas ! for the blindness pf masculine eyes, P.tul's visit, which risw came on "fast and furious' ' ostensibly lo consult me as to his entrance on a business career, had really another ebjeel r.nd I, foo'ish bat of a fellow, never siw that it was Susie's blue eyes that attra.-tcd him, and not our plain dinners and aiy still plainer talk. I even laughed at my wife when she mildly insinuated that sht thought Paul's loots were wandering and melancholy when our little charmer Was not within visible dis tance. "My dear love,' rs;d I. with the know ing air of a man vlo has been down to the very roots of human nature, arid knew ev ery fibre of the sane, "women who think men like Paul Centend have any hearts to lose are mightily mistaken. He has been all over the world and seen all sorts of beau ty, and come back perfectly heart-whole. It is not in our little Lack parlor, oTer a pirf as unsophisticated as Susie, that this man of fashion is to become spoony. No, no. Besides, he is cs poor as a church-mouse." "Very Wc-ll. J.r-k." ia o i'. pk rriu,r up her mouth, snd looking as wise as an owl "have it your own way, my dear ; but remember, if anything comes of it, I have warned you beforehand. Yoa forget th.it your friend Centend is a great admirer of elegance, and every one admits that your sister is as graceful a she is hand some; also Mr. Centend never denies him self any luxury that he thinks suited to his jxjsition, and as to poverty, he knos noth ing of ii reality not the ' shadow oi it haunts htm while he has a peuny he can call his own." Still those wnrds made hat little impres sion, and Paul came and went, as fancy led him, altogether umpiestioued by me. It was nearly a year after this that Susie wa'ked into my room one morning and told me, lauching and Llu-hinp. that Centend ha I offered himself, and she had accepted, him. Had the skies fallen I could not have lecn more surprised, for Paul, in all his pri vate confidences, had never approached rhis subject. Neither was I at all gratified, for, fond as I was of Centend, I loved my sister far more dearly, and I dreaded lest the man she had chf?n should fa:! i:i his daty to protect her. I immediately, of course, when it wa too late, did all I could to pre vent this rrsrriage, which was in many re spects very unsuitable. Paul was one of those who should nevt-rhave married at all, or at any rate entered into the holy bonds enly under the most brilliant auspices. ' To deny himself of his elegant tastes, to live tor others and be content fo work and suffer for them, was something he had nev er conceived of, much less put ia practice, and to all snch marriage is. cf onght to be, impossible. - " . . "Well, th'ry married, not withstan ling, and I gave my dear Susie away wit? tear dimmed eyes, aud more sighs in rn? speech than congratulations; while my wife, ready always to look on the bright side, rird make the best of everything. planned the arrange ments as well as our limited means would permit. And Susie went out into her new "life with a man she adored, and who foved ber as Isaac in the simple time? of old loved the wife whom he had sought so faithfully. But alas ! for the simolicity of those happier days; they are gone ncr to return. Flocks and herds will not suffice the modern re quirements of taste, neither in the shape of wholesome proviioos or comfortable clothing. Furniture, china, and silver must not only be good, but beautful, artis tically designed, and very costly; otherwise they fa"! to come np to the standard that fashion has erected, and which few have the courage to rebel agaiust. My views orj this subject were original, but it was in rain I endeavored to impress them upon these my best friends. Paul finally obtained an office in the Custom House.civen him thro' the influence of his quondam schoolmate Wilson, now a flourishing politician ; and with this to furnish an income, and a really beautiful home, which he. bought and fur nished with all that was left of his patri mony and Saie's five thousand dollars, Cen tend and his wife began thair housekeeping experience. This was the time before the war, and j bings were not then, as now, at cold prices, ; but it was painful to see Centend struggling I under the 'pressure of wants and tastes which he could not deny or control. Before j the first year was out there was anxiety j written tin Susie's rosy cheeks, and Paul, J who would never deal with any l ut the best j (that is to say the most fashionable) butch j ers, bakers and grocers, was bo longer out of the power of trades-peeple. and trcm- ; bled at the sight of a bill. Upon coiipar ing accounts, it was discovered by Susie, ' who. like most women, was the first to see the need of retrenchment, that their living aud ours differed much more in expense than comfort, and our little establishment being kept by good management on about half what the Centends expended ; but Paul's objections to deal in second-class shops, as he called them, for a time checked his wife's effjrts to economize. A few years of this sort of thing and a family of young children changed, however, the absolute necessity of the case. Paul, his love of clesance not a whit abated, but his purse absolutely empty, gave up the reins of power into bis wife's hands and allowed her to manage matfersin the .only way that was posiLI.j. Centend never before was given to bursts of ill tem per, indeed, Ids natural disposition was ami able, but as thj sweetest wine is said to make the sharpest vinegar, so Paul, cut short in bis pleasures, his p;c tiir fancies, aod his critical apetite was 'it becoming morbid, querulous ani lault -finding, many a morning did Susie come rouiid to .ur house to ."have out" the good cry which she dared not iuJ'iUre in at home. Many a sut reptitious trifle for Paul's dessert, or a pres ent for the children, was conveyed by Caro line from our domicile to theirs. But ail things have an end ; Paul's office was taken from hiui't y a change of political rulers, and, beset by dans and difficulties, ill health came upon him (the sure reult of overstrained faculties), and typhus fever closed the catalogue of his misforturfe.. When Centend had sufficiently recovered from his long iilne to look circumstances in the face, he found himself in a deplora ble condition, indeed. The war had just broken out, and swept away the hopes of happiness of thousands better anchored than be. What the-i had destiny to offer k:.
