"But do you really mean it, Mr. Braba
son r -
Dow Dale was standing in the illuminated
archway of the autumn woods, her bright
braids of hair pieraed by one or two wander
ing sunbeams, her dimpled child-face
framed in, as it were, by sprays of red-
veined eutamn leaves, while her apron . was
full of the glistening brown chestnuts which
she had *picked up.
John Brsdazon leaned against the tall,
smooth trunk of the birch tree; and looked
at her with a lazy, luxurious sense of artistic
beauty entering into his mind as he gazed
"Of course I mean it," said he.
"Bnt lam only twelve years old," cried
Rosa, flinging back ' the .sunny tendrils of
hair that hung.ov r or her forehead.
"You are exactly twelve times as lovely
as any of the city belles that congregate
hereabouts," said Mr. Brabazon, striving to
conceal a yawn. "And if they think I am
engaged—don't you see?—there • will be
some.probability of their leaving off perse
cuting me."
"Well!" said Rosa, every dimple corning
shyly out on lip and cheek as he stood there._
" It's to be a compact, eh?" said Mr.
• Brabazon.
Rosa nodded her fair little head.
"But," nodd ed
questioned, rather dubiously,
"where is ike..ring ?"
" The—what ?"
"The engageluint-ring, Mr. Brabazon,"
explained Ron, reproachfully. "Don't you
know there's always a ring in the novels?
And most generaliy a.diainond."
"If you'll believe me," said Mr. Brabazott,
tragically, "I never thought of the ring.
But hetes a little opal that used to be , my
mother's, banging on my watch.chain.
Won't that do 7"
Rose held out her brdwa auger, while he
fitted it mi.
"Yon—you haven't kissed me yeti" she
said, when this ceremony Was 'complete.
"Lovers always kiss' their fiancees!"
Mr. Bnsbazon lU'ughed.
"Come," said be, "this is getting serious.
Bat here's the kiss, before the rest of the
chestnut party get back. Atid, mind, this is
to be a profound
.secret . between you and
Boss :au back home with a vague sensa
tion of mysterious 'Might, and thought how
nice Mr. Brabazon looked, all the time she
was munching her; roasted *stunts; and
Mr. Brabazon himself took advantage of the
little joke to proclaim himself an engag
g an. Nor is it an exaggeration' to say that
the young ladies* were genuinely disappoint
ed. •
"It must be a recent thing," said Kate .
Kennedy, , tossing her head. •
"Oh, quite recent," acknowledged Mr.
" Love at first sight ?" asked Miss Day.
-no, not exactly," saidßrabazon. "In
fact, I may say that I have admired the
young lady since her infancy."
"What a delightful enigma !" said Belle
Vernon, looking anything but delighted.
"But of course, Mr. Brabazon, you'll tell ne
heroiame ?" ' -
" I - am pledged to secrecy," said the en
gaged man, solemnly. .1
And when he left the Mountain Oloteb, in
the late autumn, and forgot all about the
wild little woodland sprite orb° climbed
- c
trees and pelted him with heetnuts, waded
with brown, dimpled feet in the -foamy
ters of the glen torrent, and conducted 'OM
so mysteriously to the barn-chamber to show
hue her empty birds' nests,' butterfly wings
and diamond-bright pebbles, luiw was he to
knot? that - she remembered the episode un
der the yellow-leaved chestniit-trees as a red
letter day in her calehdar ?
" He , ought to write to me," said *in,-
gloomily, as the weeks and months glided
by, and no epistle came. "1 do hope he
isn't going to turn out false, like the wicked
cavaliers in the story books. •
And when Mr. Brabazon sent her a huge
wax doll, with its miniature Saratoga :trunk
and complete outfit of elegantly-made dress
es, at Christmas:toss flew into a passion.
"As if I were a baby I";u: s d she. "

tober! I Wonder if he takes me fora child?
Who ever heard of a gentleman sending a
doll to the young lady he was engaged to ?"
"My dear Rosa," said her mother, half
vexed, half amused, i‘ what !nonsense you
are talkingl"
"We are engaged!" said 1 Kosa. "See
the ring!"
And she slyly palled it out from the bosom
of her dress. '
"It was only a joke," sald Mrs.' Dale.
It was sober earnest!" flashed out Rosa.
2_3ly dear," said Mrs. Dale, "haven't you
beird? Mr. Bmbazon is to be married to
L Helen Hartford, Mrs. Pailleton's
English niece,wext mn'ith. The cards- are
already out." •
"What!" cried Bon, her I
eyes blazing, her rosy lips apart. "To.- be
married!—and he engaged to me!"
And then Boss rushed away into the barn
:hamber, and hid herself for full two helm!,
to sob out the current of her childish grist.
. Mrs. Dale smiled and sighed.
"Who would think the child would hive
attached so much importance to a piece Of
nonsense like that?" said she. "Really,
Pm afraid I have made s mistake in allow
ing her to read so raspy novels. ' But; she
was always an imfetno* little creature." ,
Boss wrote sertiall limiting letters to
Mr. Besbazon, all of Which she
,finally tore
up, and when 'she.. saw the marriage pro.
claimed in the papers she gave the big wax-
doll to a little girl who was only eleven

The blieSterfield County Court' met at
ChesterfieldCciurt House on Monday last.
The criminal docket was full. When the ,
first case was called the prisoner moved his
discharge on . the ground that there was no
law under which he could be punished, be
cause the offense charged against 'him was
alleged to have been committed prior to the
ISt of May, when the law which repealed
=and took the place of the " whiliping post"
law took effect; that he could not be pun
ished under the old law because • thatl was
repealed; nor could he be punished under
the'new law because it was not in force at
the 'time the offense was committed. This
being a matter of grave importance the
Court took time to consider. On Thusday
the .Judge delivered a long and elaborate
opinion, citing numerous authorities to sus
tain his views on' the subject, deciding that
the prisoner could not be punished at all,
because the old law was expressly repealed
by the new law; and the latter made no pro
vision for puuislunenticir offences , commit
ted after the former was repealed and before
the latter took effect. The ludgo said he
regretted that the Legislature had so bland-.
ered in legislation as tn•canse to be turned
loose unpunished upon the community per
sons guilty of crimes against society, and he
'had striven to'conte'to a different conclusion
in construing the law, but the weight of att- -
thority , was against hint. The result was
that five criminals—three housebreakers,
'one of who* lutd been convicted by the
jury, and two- charged with larceny—were
admonished hy the Court and sent forth as
free and forever discharged of the crimes for
whiett ihei were indicted.=-Richszo;ul

• ticket Manufacturing establishments in the
United States, and one of the largest and
most successful of these is in Boston. Few
people have any idea of the dimensions te
which the business has grown, the capital
and labor required .to answer its demands,
the exquisitely fine machinery, necessary in
the manufacture, or the skill and ability in
dispensable to its management. In the mat
ter of local tickets alone the consumption is
enormous, and the variety in manufacture
all but infinite. The number of local tickets
made by the Boston concern alone last yeas
amounted to 17,000,000. . The Eastern Bail
road has on its main line and branches be
tweet' its , termini, Boston :and Portland,
ninety-eight stations. A complete set of
local tickets requires not only that there
shall be tickets sold in the Boston depot for
every one of these outer stations, and in the
Portland depot correspondingly for the
other stations tho other way, but Mit a tick,
et form shall exist, and tickets be constantly
On hand at every station for every other on
the line. The number for the intern
amounts to about 4,400. Now _remember
that these printers make local tickets for
every New England line, and many of thoie
of Canada also, as well as soma famous lines
and systems in the West and South, and
that they have constantly to carry stock for

fixes his eyes upon a ticket in the cnstody•of
