pyIVIENTUBIF,S OF , A BASHFUL 24 . LAN.
; Harry Gordon Singleton made his debut into
-.the world ov e r Frlday. We ,:de,emed.this fact
worth chronicling, since it was an event of some,
rtabee to rhero, and 'because 'we hope
to allow anbeliffe'rs that the old'say abont the
'r unluckiness-of Friday iS correct. Froin 'his
,/pry bittlii.Harry- was stigmatized. He was
an e,xceeangly -pretty babe, leis compleZion,
blue 'eyed, brown haired, Plump and' rosy; but
' be Wait end6Wed with a heritage far worse than
a,hutrip back, a club foot, or a squint eye—he
~was bashful! When the ladies came to look
•-at. him in his cradle,, and, to call him "little
',beauty—the express image of his pa," the little
"sweet" would invariably put, his fist into his
mouth and hide his interesting face in his pillow.
Atm. Singleton—a- fair, faced, handsome wo-
man—regretted very greatly this unfortunate
trait in the temperament of her beloved first
borne, and used- every endeavOr to break him
ofit but without success, and Harry grew up to
• youth the most bashful and retiring of human
. beings. He was also, singularly-unlucky. No
child ever received.so many thumps and bumps

. the repository of rubbish; by way of variation,
sinnetimes took refuge in the barn, and snug
ly bidden on the hay mow, spent she time in
•, silent meditation on- his unfortunate destiny.
,He would walk a mile around through the fields
to avoid meeting a, young lady; and 'when in.
the-street if be ; heard the sound of wheels, 11 - e
,--would leap over the wall or fence and lie prone
, on the ground until the vehicle had passed by.
• As he grew older, he lost none of his peculi
arities, and before he was sixteen years of age,
• : his-mother's chief difficulty was the fear that he
„would live an old bachelor Hundreds of silver
~.dolltirs could not have induced him to speak to
a girl of his age, and his father was obliged to
forego his purpose of sending him to the White
,stone, Academy, and have him educated at the
But notwithstanding Harry's excessive bash
fulness, he grew.up to - be, a fine fellow, brave,
„ generous and handsome, had , there was not a

his presence:, Hurry, hoWrever, stood aloof
::from all the female sex, and as a natural eon
:sequence, he was the subject of numberless
practical jokes and. the hapless occasion of cod
. ti'nutil giggling among the gay girls, at the sing
- .mg school. •
When Harry was nineteen, Rosalie Waters
‘. ; came to Wbitestown to pass sometime with her
; 7 . Aunt, 'Mrs. Judge Flauders.. Rosalie was a
pretty, bright eyed, mischiev'ous fairy of seven
, : teen, and if the truth must be confessed, she
r . took quite a liking to• Harry Singleton ; but of
' , course she was too much of a coquette to allow
parry to guess it. He, on Lis, part, thought
. ;.hiinself dead, in love, though he dared not raise
'his eyes:to thekeriess fl ee of his guiding star.
. For whole days he' racked.- his brain, planning
r law he should address her, but without decid
ing upon anything - definite. One night, at a sing
ing school a bold idea,
.flashed across his brain;
its very boldness Made it seem practicable. He
would offer to sort Rosalie home!
It was an audacious act, and Harry trembled
• every limb at the thought of it; a cold pers
piration-started out of every pore: his hair
_ nearly stood erect, and his face flushed hot as
the bosom of Vesuvius., He-attempted to sing.
but his fine tenor voice broke down; he cough
hemreed, flourished his' handkerchief, and
was at last obliged to sit down in despair. „
no exercises of the evening closed. Harry
eeized • his hat and rushed•to the entry,where he
'took his station in full view of the door through
.- which Rosalie would emerge. Her crimson
hood appeared in the doorway, and his teeth
chattered in his head, but his resolution was un
"Shaken. He made a sortie in her direction,
*necking over little James Brown, the barber,
and fearfully mutilating the new calash of Miss
: : * .WiDurtheinilliner, in the act; hut these were
minor affairs, and not worthy of his notice. -He
touched the shoulder of Rosalie.,,
" May I- 7 -may—go home with you to-night—
. this evening?" stammered he.
She put her little handwithin his arm and they
Went out together into the' starlight. Harry
' seemed to tread on air. This world was this
world no longer, but the Charmed paradise of
,hapossibility, and he dared not speak lest he
- should break the spell.
'The little lady too was strangely silent and
the entire distance to the house of Judge Flan
ders was passed without a word.
- At the door Harry wouldhave bidden his com
panion good night, but she retained his hand and
drew him into the parlor; and there the light
t of the chandelier fell full on the face of the
laughing tWoman, and with dread dismay Harry
saw that not Rosalie, but Mrs. Judge Flanders
herself stoodbefore him. He had waited on the
,'.aunt and not the niece. Uttering an exclama
tion' he was about to retire, but Mrs. Flanders
,goOd immoredly detained him.
- " 0, don't go," she said kindly, "you really
did bravely. lam proud of you ; I knew from
. the first - that you had made a mistake, but was
fearful you would never try again if I denied you
came; Rosalie will be-in soon; wait for her."
" Indeed, ma'am—l—should be happy to—
not to—in fact ma'am, I believe I am wanted
• Starting for the door backwards, instead of
choosing that by which he had entered, lie bolt
ed out into the dark kitchen and seized the han
dle of the first door that offered. Mrs: Flanders
was following Close, but before she could utter
IL single word his "good night" was succeeded
immediately by a series of thumps and rumblings
in the direction of the cellar.
The truth burst upon her at once, that he had
taken the cellar door and fallen down stairs!
She seized a light 'and flew down the steps.
There he lay with his head in a trough of ashes
and his feet unromantically elevated over, the
shelf of a neighborinOupboard. He was con
siderably bruised and stunned but not othethise
injured. Mrs. Flanders w,ould have raised him
tip but he anticipated her, and without stopping
to shake himself; bounded up stairs and made a
dive for the outer door, the ashes streaming out
behind him like a cloud of gray smoke.
The door was opened from without, and Ro-
A• salie herself appeared. At sight of the hatless,
smoking Harry, she uttered a loud shriek and
fell fainting to the floor, while our hero dashed
. over het prostrate form and took the track for
home at a speed unequalled in the, annals of foot
races. Breathless and used up generally, the
young man reached home, crawled in at a back
window-and retired to his bed, which he kept
for three days afterwards,
/In spite of apologies and flattering courte
sies from Mrs. Flanders—in spite of gentle, af
fectionate advances from RoSalie herself, Harry
Singleton could never be tempted to step inside
the mansion of the Judge ; and Rosalie, after
waiting two years for Ham to make himself
agreeable to her, gave up the vain hope and be-
r.an - .e the wife of a substantial widower with four
children, which quitet a good beginning.
.....Harry,wrOtt on way -alone, as mother

fitodltings and re - Anne - buttons' with counnend
tibial:align-061 he had'stadied for, the law, had
lioarrtvio,yeats admitted to - thebar, - and was a
talented and rising young man. Being also
wealthy and handsome, half the ladiei in the
village- were in love with him, but he gave them
a wide berth and passed them by.
. Mr. Singleton dabbled somewhat in politics,
.and at the. early'. age of , thirty, howas_electek
member of Congress. In celebration of this
event a grand supper , in his honor was given at
the Whitestown . Hotel. Of course; 'the suc
cessful candidate must be presented. and eti
, quette demanded that he should bring a' lady
with him. 'The committee of arrangements
waited upon him to inform him of the fact, and
it- may, be well believed' the communication
'filled him with horror.' He begged of the get
tlemen to' provide him a partner if be must
have one stipulating only that the lady should
not be a young lady. In due course of time he
was informed that he was to attend Mrs. Grub
bins, the wealthiest .as well 'as the tallest and
fatest woman in the whole county.
The eventful evening arrived. Mr. Singleton
took Mrs. Grubbing *to the hotel in a chaise.
The lady was magnificently attired in a double
skirted tarleton, with ribbons, feathers and
fearfully extended crinoline. ,
Poor fellow! The thought of escorting 'that
giantess into a room_ filled with' people made
him sweat like one Under the intiuenee of a
powerful dose of ipecachuana. But hp was, in
for it and must get out the best way be could.
Mr. Grubbing ' proud•and triumphant, preceded
him, breaking the passage, and compelling lesser
people to yield the ground, Just as she ar
rived on the threshold of the banqueting hall,
she dropped. her fan; and just at that moment
the audience perceiving him in the back
ground, propose " three 'cheers for Hoe. Mr.
Stopping to reclaim the fan, when the enthu
siastic multitude looked for their champion he
was nowhere visible. Cries ran round the room
loud and vehement:
"Mr. Singleton! Mr. Singleton! where is
Mr. Singleton?" and directly Mr. Singleton
looking very hot and very much confused; ap
peared from 'under the upper skirt of Mrs.
Grubbins' dress—that lady having completely
submerged the honorable gentlemen in the folds
of her drapery. Gentlemen smiled in their
sleeves, and. ladies , giggled 'behind their hen&
kerchiefs. Mrs. GrAbins looked more regal
than ever, and Mr. "Singleton leaned against a
pillar for support.
The announcement of dinner was a great re
lief. , Judge. Flanders presided ; Mrs. Grubbins
Occupied the seat at Singleton's, right; Miss
Flambeaux sat at his left, and Lucy,Deane, the
village belle was his vis-a-vis.
Our hero's position was exceedingly embar
rassing to one of his peculiar temperament,
daring not to refuse anything that was offertd
him, leSt some one should look at him, and the
consequence was his - plate literally groaned
beneath its weight of edibles. Tomato sauce—
his especial horror, passed around; a preserve
plateful was alloted to him; from which he at
tempted to swallow, but - it only stuck fast in his
throat; it . el/milted-. and sickened him, and set
him coughing violently. ,
"You have taken a severe cold I presume,"
remarked Miss Flambeaux:
"Yes madam, thank you, I have," returned
Singleton, trembling on the verge of another
sneeze. A L
"Why Oft you Cat your tomatoes?" quer
ried Mrs. Gtubbins. "My- poor dead and gone
Daniel used to say there was nothing in the"
whole vegetable empire equal to tomatoes."
"No doubt madam,' they are very_ fine;" and
Singleton essayed a second spoonful: The sec
ond dose had welfiligh been too mach for him;
and with desperate resolve he watcheduntil
the whole company were engaged inAlrinking a
toast, when he tilted the preserve dish and let
its contents run into the napkin, which recept
acle he whiffed into his pocket without delay,
and immediately felt easier. • A moment after
Jude Flanders proposed a sentiment;
" May he always retain the title of ' honor
able,' but maybe soon resign his seat to be called
single. It is tint good for man to be alone."
'The sentiment was' drank with applause,
Singleton; - blushing red at the insinuation con
veyed by the words of. Judge, thrtist his hand
in his pocket for his handkerchief; when instead
out came napkin, tomato and all. Mopping
his forehead vigorously with it; and the luscious
vegetable formed an unctuous poultice thereon
—completely transfiguring - his countenance.
Blinded with the juice, and halfdead with mor
tification, he thrust the napkin back into his
pocket and secured the handkerchief, while the
astonished company-beheld him in silent amaze
"Dods your nose bleed, sir?" inquired Mrs.
Grubbins, quite audibly.
" What-the goodness in the matter ?" scream
ed Judge Flanderi:--
Ahem ! only a slight cold, thank you Sir,
" A cold is it -1 Faith now, an' yen honor's
nose must be after turning itself in out thin ! "
exclaimed Mr. O'Toole, the Irish orator. .
Lucy Dean was laughing; Flambeaux was
horrified ; Mrs. Grubbins looked' shocked ; our
friend Singleton was nearly suffocating with
shame. Leaning back in his chair to recover
his breath, and air Soon as he could speak beg
ged to be excused , a moment as he did not feel
quite Well. And forthwith he arose and made
for the door ; but—horror of horrors !—he had
set on the pocket containing the napkin of to
matoes and his white pantaloons were dripping
red with the sanguinary vegetable! -
A simultaneous shriek burst from all assem
" Good gracibus, Mr. Singleton is wounded !
Murder! Murder! Call a physician ! Seize the
murderer! Send for Dr. Spillpowder! Quick
—he'll bleed to death! tMurder ! Murder!
The infuriated audience rushed hither and
thither; and some one encountering John, the
waiter, with a carving knife in his hand, took
bim for the perpetrator of the crime and seized
upon him without delay. John Struggled and
swore, and laid about him with right good will,
but he was 'overpowered by numbers and at last
obliged to yield. There was a regular fight;
and black eyes, and swelled noses, added large
ly to the beauty of the scene. The ladies fled to
the ante-zoom i Judge Flanders ran for a sur
geon, and during the melee Singleton made his
escape. No grass grew beneath his feet as he
speed for home, but the night being dark, and ,
he being slightly flustered, he unfortunately
mistook the house, and, entered, not his -own
residence, but that of a correct old spinster
named Mary Willis. The houses were some
what similar, and Singleton, withoutpausing for
a light, rushed up stairs and into his own Cham
ber °she thought, where breathless and exhaust
ed he flung himself upon the bed.
Mary had retired same timeprevions and the
sudden advent of Mr. Singleton aroused, her
from a sound slumber., Springing - from the
bed, regardless of the fact that herteeth were
Out and,_her " natural" curls reposing in the
bureau-drawer, she fled to the house of her
nearest neighbors, and securing assistance re
turned to meet the horrified Singleton just
emerging from the door.
, Poor Singleton tried to eiplain,but Miss
Willis would listen to nothing; her reputation
was ruined she said, and Singleton must either
settle or marry her! A fifty dollar bill, was
given freely; ; mending thebroken character-and
learned Singleton never to go to bed in the dark.
_ The affair at the Whitestown Hotel was a
rather serious, one. Thee orator O'Toole had
his nose broken; Dr. Spillpowder broke his
