"Thank fate l I shall ;neyer be the
prey of a fortune hunter l"
As Sally-Beauclere uttered these words
she threvs; herself-back upon the• sofa, and
- vitli.a Jig_
"Your fortune is your face," rejoined
her companion, as' he gazed admiringly
on her fine features. Sally opened her
large eyes in_astonishment. - -
" A complinient,froni you, Tom 1" she
exclaimed. . . '
. The gentleman colored. "I knoNy= I
om not much given to pretty speeohed,
but you know, Sally,. that I aditilre yen
all the same:" _ •
.', To tell the truth, Toni Middleton had
fora long time loved Miss Beauclere,
with ail the strength of an earnest and
constant nature; but he was very , dihi.-
dent ; ho had shrunk from Making known
his attachment, fearing Sally's ridicule,
though had he been more confident of
hinaself he might have read long a
secret that Sally's eyes took little pains,
to conceal. But Tom never imagined
how desirable a follow ho was in himself,
and, knowing that' he , had no great for
tune to bestow, he did not venture to
offer his hand to the daughter of Senator
Beauclere and the reigning belle of the
city. Sally was ono of a large family, it
is true, and portionless, but her father's
poSition and her own beauty maile Tom
imagine her to be far removed from him,
he only leeke:d-li
RUGS, &o
.4 ow, ho only lom hurt when she thins
playfully sneered at his small .conipli
ment,'and turning away tcilhe window,
did not catch the. tender look that stole
over Eiall/s handsome features. "
` °a
"Well, what is the weather ?" she
asked, after a moment, as he still stood
gating out into the night.
" It is beautiful moonlight, and I think'
I had better go."
"Go 10, no,' Tom. Why, this is the
last time I shaltsee you for everiolong."
"And will you care ?" he asked, ho
came again to her side. ' •
Sally blushed. "Of course I shall care,
. .
"No, Sally, tomorrow you ire going
to. Washington. You will , be a belle
there, as you aro everywhere, and you
*will soon forget me." -
"No, indeed, Torn I" she replied,
earnestly. "Among all those strange
faces,. and people I don't care anything
about, I shall long to seamy old friends."
"But not me. You won't care much
Whether I am among the number or not."
".Yes, I shall." .
Tom was a foolwhere woman was con
cerned, or he 'wd,uld have known what
those words,ln that soft; low tone, meant.
As, it was, a wild hope did spring up in
his heart, but when - ho looked again at
that beautiful woman-it died away. "I

The weeks passed on, and • Sally Beau-:

.Willard'El 'hotel, lii .Washington. As.
Middleton had predicted,. her beauty and'
talents 'drew around her. ii, °tad
wirers, and before long ''sbe wag istab-'
lished as one of :the reigning belles, of'
Washington:. • ,'
-The . admiration and adulatiOn_which
she received,. Sally found more intoxicat.'
ing and delightful than she had imagined.
.It was `very pleasant to be of
every ball teem, and to be constantly
surrounded bye eircle of *adorers. The .
idea of returning to the humilnini life of
home was not always pleasantsto her, and,
olio sphietimes felt half inclined to accept
some of the brilliant offers that. wore,
made to 'her. See had :been a good deal
'Tub out, tee, with Tom for not speaking
before she came
,away. Sometimea she
was half inclined to doubt his love for
-her, and although his earnest eyes haunted
her4vith their wistful; look of affection
she had more than one serious thought
of trying to banish his reinembrance, and
marry, as so inanyothers around her did,
for money rather than love.'
-- Most proininent among -her.-sworn-ad
mirers was. Mr. Carlton Murray, of New
York. Handsethe, distinguished look
hig, and reputed to be of groat wealth, he
aeomea to be a match not to be despised.
Since the moment of his first introduc
tion to Sally he had devoted hiinself to'
her most persistently. Every day a bou
,que_t of : fresh flowers came to her room;
with his compliments ; every morning lie
hung over her. chair ; every evening he
was ready to attend her at balls and re
ceptions. . .
, Sallyi - to tell the truth, was very Well
pleased with -his admiration—he under
stood sb well how to play the agreeable,
helitlid - hifeSuCh - protty compliments, he.
was so handsome.and thoroughbred.- He
had already made his proposal in form,'
and Sally was listening, to_his _earnest
pleading,' as.they sat half hidden from
observation in one of the deep windows
of 'the hotel parlor. ' •
"Pray, Miss Sally, think favorably of
my suit. My- hopes of happiness, my"
future life, depend ,on your reply." -
Thewards were 'earnest, the tone im
passioned. Sally's cheeks burned as She
hesitated for a reply. - "I have known
you for so short a time," she faltered..
"Whatls that? You have known me
for, five Week's, and during that time
have - seen me more frequently than
would under different circumstances in a
whole year. I have known you long
enough to love you, madly, distractedly
lOve you! And you have known me king
enough to bid me at least hope." -She
did not reply, and he bent .thwards her,_
takingher hand in his eagerness.
my dearest Sally." •
Hi l s words and actions recalled her to
her position, and she drew back. "Yon
forgot whi3ro you are,' Mr. Murray 1" At
that moment she caught sight of a gentle-
Man who was talking with her father.
"There is an old friend of mine. I must
go and speak to him.'! „And she sprung.
up without other reply tothe impassioned
suitor. Murray looked after her with a
smile of triumph. He had little doubt
,of his ultimate success: •
"Mr. Trunahullehow do you do?" cried
Sally, as she came forward.
"Ab, MisS Sally; I am glad to see you
again," exclaimed ' the gentleman.—
" Washington dissipation has not spoiled
you, I see; You are morel:dooming than
Sally laughed and , blushed. "Come,
now, pa, don't you bore Mr. Trumbull
with Pi:allies, but leave him to talk with
me for a while, and tell me how every one
is at home."
Senator Wandler°, after a few more
words, turned away,,,,and Sally and her
old friend sat down side by Ode. Mr.
Trinnbull••had married one of her old'
sehoolmaMs, and she regarded him alinOst
'as a brother. ' • • • '
"Well, Miss Bally, toll me:about your

There are various kinds uv milk. There
is sweet milk, sour milk, butter milk,

the milk that hasn't the most water init.

The most common milk in use,

,Milk is obtained from cows, hogs,
