"Thirty:fivo to..clay / .My life is just half
through—that is, ii I am to live the three•
score and ten, which the Bible, say's ii the
life of man. I sometimes wish that I had al
ready reached therend./"
Such was the remark that I addressed to
myself upon the morning of ..my.lbirty•Ofth
birthday. I was not in the best of humors,
as may be inferred from a portion of my re
mark. But when I had pushed aside she cur
and Opened the window, and had revelled
for awhile in the glories of an October morn
ing, (for the reader must know, what I am •
proud of telling, that my birth day comes hi
the glorious month of October, "which makes
the weeds so gay,") then did my epiritacquire
its usual tone of serenity,.and I became half
lashamed of my first exclamation.—But the
day had begun badly, and I was destined to
endounter anti overcome many more vexatious •
before it ended..
'As I looked in the glass that morning ; nev
er so it seemed to me, had the ravages of time
been so perceptible. My brown locks, which
had been the pride anti admiration of my
friends, and which only yesterday had seen ed
to me as glossy, abundant and beautiful as
i ever, now looked faded and thin—and, yes,
actually, there vrasa gray hair I lam asham
ed to confess that, for one instant, I was al
'.most disposed to sit down and cry, but, hap•
pity, I did not yield to the temptation. My
eyes, too, which in my youngerdaye had been
dark and lustrous, :tartly cousin John hadonce
said, "shone like an angel's when I was ani
mated," now. upon The morning of my thirty
fifth birth day, looked dull and green. There
were wrinkles, too, upon my face, which could
only have been placed there by the, hand of--
tirnp,. In fact, Hooked like a wrinkled, faded
grim old maid, and with this impression strong
upon my mind, I put-on the most Quaker
like dress I possessed, combed my hair book
as plainly as possible and wentdownto break
fast. As I openedthetioor, I woe unfortunate
enough to interrupt a family conference; for
there was Seated at the table, uncle and aunt,
John, Harry, Frank, 'and little Annie, all seem
ingly engaged in earnest • conversation.—
Upon my sudden entrance there mom abrupt'
pause, and some embarrassment expressed by
the younger members of the family. - '
Another advaotogeln being- alt old mold,"
thoughr I to myself sure to stumble
into places whero she isn't, wanted." •
An 1 seated. myself innajt accustomed place
at the table, 'there was au ^exclamation from
"Good gracious, Emily 1 . hacn.you turned

of that drab dream?"
" It means that I um thirty-five to•daY ; eo
be reverent, if you please," said I, shaking
my finger at hint. • •
• "In Milfmourningforherhopes,lsuppose,"
muttUreclllarry, with a moat malicious ex
preeeion of face. •
At this point I jetted down a memorandum,
in my mind— to give Harry a lecture upon re
spect before the day was through. •
" I do believe that cousin Emily has made
a mistake," shouted my pet Frank, at thismo.
ment, shaking the curls' all over his head.—
"I know she is forty instead of thirty-five to
day. and 11l provet by the family Bibleafter

you, of all others should cheat in your age.
I shalle never believe in you after this."
"Hold your tongues, boys," interrupted my
uncle. "If you don't behave yourselves you
shall take no part in"yeti know what.". And
here my uncle nodded mysteriously.
As I left the table that morning,' I felt sure
that Ihated the boys most decidedly, and I
came to the conclusion that they were, the
moat ungrateful set that ever lived, .Bven
Frank, by whose sick-bed I had
years of my life, who had often declared that
he had loved me better than 'an,ytblog else on
earth even he, bad wounded me by a foolish
"Please, Emily, don't oome down to dinner
in drab,". said John, an he banded me to the
door in an unusually gallant. etyle.
"And, Cousin Emily, mother seys you are
not to enter the kitchen to-day," whispered
little Annie, with &most bewitching smile.
"So they want to getridof me," thought I,
bitterly. "And what can have coitus over

to remember that there was a quantity of old'
' letters to be looked' ver and sorted—a task
that I had put off from day to
.day as a pain=
ful one, for it would necessarily recall thettne
I bitter sorrow of my life.' - .
Twelve years bbfore, upon that very day,
my marriage was to have taken
. phice. But
before , the time came we bad quarreled, and
when the sun rose upon'. our .wedding-day,
Philip Allen was across, the sea,, a• .sad and,
solitary wanderer. As Ire read those letters
—relics of my love dream—how visidly did
every eireumstande connected with it come up
before me How welll reoollected Cur quar
rel,' which my own wilfulness had, caused,
tand Philip's end, reproachful- face,. when I
.tarred frdm him•with the angry exclamation:
"Go, lf , 'You wish it—it is beet--,for we shall
never•agree. We had betternever.riteettgain."
And we had 'never met. again. My words,
bitterly repented of ne soon as slioken, and re
pented of every day and hour since that time
had been literally adhered to. Philip was in
a distant land, and 1 Iva, an old maid of thir
ty-five. My musings wore hero interrupted
- by-t he-most-outrageouw - noise- down stairs: —I
began seriously to think that my uncle was
knocking .away a portion of his house by the
hammering that !heard. The most uproarieus
shouts or laughter likowlie floated up from the
region below. ' '
really believe everybody hero is crazy
to-day," thought I, lie I oOmmenced my toilet
for dinner. .
To please John I nut on the very gayest
dress I possessed ; for, however much I might
grumble itt'the boys, I knew, and they knew,
thht I would do almost anything to . please
. "Very well—very well, indeed._ You'll do
Emily,' said John, as he took it'critioal our
voy of mrdress through his eye-glass.
At dinner-tiMe there were the same mysteri
ousnods and glances that I had noticed at
breaktift, and everybody seemed unusually
excitedA In the afternoon John prepared to
drive me out in his new buggy, to,,see the'
country in its October dreee.
"More likely to make acquaintance with
Mother Earth." 'retorted I; "for really John,
you are so excited you will not be .able , to
manage that spirited horse of yours."
But John protested that lie was never calm
or in his life. and, as n.proof of his placidity,
performed some of' tlie most ridiculous mans
oeuvres, without, however, convincing me at
"Better go. Cousin Emily," said Harry "it
may be your last chance: I don't expect you'll
as much as look at manner to day."
In my heart of hearts I determined both-to
look at the gentleman and to talk to him in a
way that he should not soon forgot. But this
matter was put off for another day; for there
stood. John wating impatiently for me. Now,
as I really had no ,fear whatevoi of John's
driving, I deoided to go, little incasing the
vexations I should undergo before r 'reached
"Now," thought I, as I seated myself in the
buggy, "now I will. find ou s t, the meaning of
nll this mystery. It will he impossible for
John to keep the secret from me. Has 'any •
thing unusual happened to day John?" I com
'•Anything unusual happened to-day ?" fa
pentad John. "Why yes. I think there has."
"What 1" demanded I, impatiently.
"Why, you'are thirty-five to-day, are you
not, Emily I" returned John. with a very de
mure face ; 'and quite.young and handsome,
too; for thirty live."'.
Now, I was both amused and provoked at
the absurdity of the speech. Totelithe truth,
I bad by this time become a little tiredof hear
"No matter," thought I, "he will at least
' be moved when he 'liars that fedi going invey.
I. know that be will say 'cousin Emily can't
be dispensed with.' "John." I began, "some
tiaras —to, day Opecially—l have thought that
it would be beat if I should go away from here
—thitt I should he happier in another dwelling
I was hero interrupted by John, who was
attacked by the most outrageous fit of cough
ing, which lasted several minutes, and which,
by its violence, threatened to rupture a blood
vessel. Indeed, I was really alarmed by the
evident distress in which be wan, and which
exhibited itself by tile purple hue of his face,
and by the oddest grimaces. No allusion was
made to my remark during the remainder of
the ride. and I must say 'was not a little,
wounded by the perfect indifference manifee•
ted by John upon the subject of my depart
"There's Amy Anthem," shouted John, as
we passed a cottage, at the gate of which
stood a blooming young 'girl. And as John
spoke. he drew up witiva,vdden jerk, threw
the reins to me, and was soon in earnest con:
versation with Amy. ,Now Amy was a great
fa emit e of mine, and it was no secret that she
was a great favorle of John's also: but I
should have preferred that he should have ta
ken another time to have shown his partiali
ty, espOally as, by their motions, I knew
that they were talking about me. So I lean

uncotnfOrtable, and imagining their,wholecurt•
"I suppose he is telling herthatl am thirty
five to day, and of course she will answer,
with her prettiest smile,
...Poor old maid; I pity.
"Good-bye, Amy. Now don't forget to be
ready at the eject moment," wad Joltn'a
apeeoh, as we drove away.
John had several other calls to make, the
objeot of which I could not discover. There
were several mysterious conferences held with
elderly spectacled Indies, end middle-aged la
dies, and , young ladies, all of whom nodded
kindly to me, but all of whom T suspected of
saying to each other, "She's thirty five to-day,
poor thing l" How I wish we were at home,
and home we reached atlength, only to hornet
at the door by Harry. who had spent the time
prolltribly.by composing.an epitaph on our
probable fate, which,' standing at the foot of
the etaira, he shouted out to tneWord by word.
Bow long I eat in the solitude of my own

had gone back into the days,a( the prise . days
that never could return. Arlen I awoke to
actual life it was dark. and lh,iroom felt dark
and chilling. There was an unusual platter
of voices and sound of feet below,- and hurry

the darkmaircase and 'opened the parlor - door.
And then. etartsd back at the flood of light and

in connection with our wild, roguish Harry,.
that this seemed real, too real.' Over the bier

tion, "Who aoted David!" None knew,
A little lath'eln the. evening I managed to
find Harry, who looked now as,little like the
dead Absalom as it was possible to look, and
endeavored to extract from him some informa
tion in regard to the stranger: for, strange to
say, that was the. subject upon which my
thoughts oftenest dwelt. But Harry pretehded
perfect ignorance: ,
"How should I know who it was, when my
eyes were closed the

what, it isn't ati!easy thing to act•Absaloru •
"But you certainly know who_ was loaning
over you, Harry." •

could do to keep perfectly - -
Ism* that there was nothing to be extracted
from Harry, 88 I attacked John upon the sub
jeot. But-my quest iota remained unanswered
for John was again seized with one of those
fearful fits of coughing that had engaged my
sympathy in the morning. •
"Now that I have recovered; Emily,!' said
John, when it pleased him to-stop eoughlng,•
"just come with me into the dining•room,
from this crowd,- I've something there ttrehow
. And something indeed there was; for, there
stood my good old uncle, with a beautiful gold
watch in his hand which he presenied'to me
with a few simple hut affecting words: Then
followed my aunt with a gift, at once ,elegrint
and appropriate. And then, in their turn,
each of the boys. Before the presentation of
his gift, which was an elegant rosewood' cirit
ing-desk, John attempted to make a little
speech, but broke down in the midst of it.. to
the great amusement of all, for 'John was very
seldom embarrassed. Ah! how little justice
I had done them all :hat morning. I had lic
ensed them of not caring for me, of wishing
mo out of the house; and here had the whole
family united .in honoring my birthday and
remembering my tastes. How, much had I,
old maid as I was, and thirty-five years old,
to be thankful for! How like a stab did every
one of them kindnesses seem, when I thought
of my morning soliliquy. As those ideas
passed through my mind. I raised my eyes
and encountered thoao of Annie, who, child
like, had been fluttering about from one room
to another, and woe now watching me.
"Now, Cousin' Emily, if you will come into
the library, I will show you my present."
Tho library had been entirely deserted by
our guests, and as Annie and I approached it
from (110 dining room, 1 saw only ono solitary
figure, that, of the stranger, sitting with his
face turned ;from the light. I was about to
withdraw; hut Annie urged me gently forward,
and just then the stranger turned with an
eager look, and for the first lime for twelve
years I stood face to face with Philip Allen.
There 'was no mistaking those features, which
once seen, could never be forgotten, and there
was no mistaking the eager, impetuous haste
with which Philip rushed forward to greet
me. He was not changed, and that thought
brought such exceeding joy that I forgot'that
I was thirty-five, and no longer young and
handsome, a •
Strange to say, this idea never, oboured to
me during the remainder of the evening, _which
seemed unaccountably short, neither the next
day, nor the neFt. day after. But, asHarry
remarked next morning at breakfast, travelers

had been a wanderer many years, and those
.years had been' so full of marvelous adven
tures, and it was so. necessary that he should
tell them to somebody, that it happened, 1
hardly knew bow, that I was obliged to give
him a great many conferences in the library.
And these adventures had from one thing led,
on to another, and finally, in the most unro
mantle manner possible.. (for what romance .
could be expected of such elderly people?) it
was proposed that wo should give out another
invitation to our friends ' and that we should
become the actors in that imposing tableau,
called marriage. We did as ws proposed, and
