be seen in the whole world
"At the same time, I thought the beautiful
figure might not wish to see me, eo by way of
pleasing both her and myself, I established my.
self behind a curtain, and continued, to gate at ,
her until I - became quite bewildered with her
loveliness She was very =busy all that morn

room for some fresh ones which had just been

going down, and it was nearly time to water

to the happy flowers the most refreshing shower
they bad ever received.
"My pipe had been nut aboyft three hours,
though the end was still in my mouth. I also
found that the curtain no Wager concealed me,
and, in fact, that I had been staring in the most
marked manner, probably from about two to five,
at a young lady of whoa I knew nothing, and
who certainly could have no wish to know any
thing at all about me. Fortunately she had not.

impressions are everything; and at that moment
I must have lucked like a Mongol."
George, its be proceeded to say, bad been look

the sixth boar began, felt that howls hopelessly
in love with her. T his will astonish 60030 peo

You must have a oaten' admiration for a girl to
look at her even for five minutes; and this ad
miration, onoe existing, what difficulty is there
in gasiog at her for Ste boors? The only diffi
culty is io not doing so if yeti happen to have the
chance In England men sometimes sit for
sourly five boors et; dinner, and in France they
frequently sit more than ive hours at a good
breakfast. People drink five bumper+ of wine,
smoke five cigar., play five games of carde--
sometimes even do all three at ottoe—aod yet

Bet to write such &bitty in - a letter is always
ridicalous; accordingly he had determined to beg

aad then trust to the inspiration of the moment
for the rest The reader will think that George
was very rash, but it must be remembered that
if be bad seen the young lady ten times, and
ear► time for only half an boar, it would have
been thought quite natural for him to fall in
love with her. Probably be thought he knew
much more of her from seehig her forlve honl*
all at once. It was true be had had no conver
sation with her, bat what conversation do men
generally have with the girls they are about to
marry? None; or very little that the mother or
some other venerable friend does not take care to
overheat. Then in the general way of courtship,
the young lady is only visible at set times, when
she is prepared to receive you, • whereas George
had already seen the object of his affections in
morning attire He knew how she looked be•
fore twelve in the day when she espeeted no visi
tors; he also knew that she was thoroughly beau
tiful and graceful; that she was food of flow
ers, and that she could devote four or five hours
together to the same object, or, in other words,
that she was not capricious and inconstant Did

Flowerer, George was unable to find out the
name of his divinity, though be tried several of
the most ordinary devises; such as telling his
servant to make the sequaintanee of her servants;
inquiring of all the tradespeople in the neighbor
hood; sending a boy to the house with a parcel,
addressed "Miss Smith"—the boy being instruc
ted to inquire, if Miss Smith didn't live there,
But his servant was amble to make the ac
quaintance of either of her servants; the trades.
people of the place knew nothing about her, in
asmuch as she dealt with none of them; and the
little boy, after being informed that Miss Smith
didn't live there, had his ears boxed for his` tar.
pertinence in asking any further questions
For three days George was in a state of the
greatest excitement. He still looked perpetual
ly at his fair nix si-riv, but he found it impossi
ble to remain hidden all the time behind a cur.
It is said that soldiers when they first get in•
to the trenches before a besieged town, have the
greatest difficulty in refraining from exposing
their heath above the parapet. They know they
will get hit if they take a peep, but they get
nervous and can't help looking, and thus LI hap
pens that the number of recruits killed is much
larger in proportion than that of the veteratia.;
George felt like a recruit in the trenches; amid,
although be knew that it would be fatal to be
seen watching the young lady opposite—who
from that moment might erase to come to the
window—he found it imrssible not to show
himself Perhaps, too, be thi,ugiit it was a pity
he should admire her so much, and she remain
ignorant of his admiration At all events, ho

as°, rtain that it had just been ordered by a gen
tlviniin, aunt upstairs to inquire whether ft "was
all right?" the young lady at once told her to
bring the rost,tree upstairs. She then lost no
time in depositing it in the balcony, where it oc
cupied the place of honor, standing high above
the other plants in the most conspicuous part of
the little conservatory, and immediately opposite
George had returned home, and seen all this
from behind his curtains. Then he came for'
ward, and directly he fancied his beautiful neigh
bor raw bim, bowed, as if in acknowledgineot
of her attention. He had, however, gone too
far. The young girl looked on one side so as
not to see him, went back into the drawing
room, and pulled the blind down.
George totted that there was no chasm of
meeting the yenog lady with the golden hair io
the street, for she never went out eaoept is a
carriage. On them expeditions she was accom
panied by an old woman, who never , made her
appearance on any other occasion, and , who, as
George imagined, was in the habit of lying in
bed until it was time to take her afternoon drive.
It was impossible to lie in wait until the fair an.

Once or twice the old woman, who appeared

they knew exaotly nothing of one another, 'al
a great deal George, however, profiting by

scarcely remembered one of them after he had

mini's beat scene, in the finale to the second set
of the "Traviata," he was starting about the
house, when he suddenly saw a very pretty girl,
accompanied by a foolish looking old mat, and
a hideous old woman, eater a box of, the grand
tier Ile was thinking how huh the golden
hair of the young woman harmonised with the
amber curtains of the box, or rather how little
the amber curtains of the box harmouiz.d with
the golden hair of the young woman, when and.
deoly ho notieed that she had large blue eyes,
and the next moment saw that it was his lute

and married (as was now tolerably evident) by
an avaricious mother to nch old dotard
George hastened ronud to the corridor of the
grand tier, and read, oo the batik of the box, the
inscription, "Lady Tiokerville." It was certain
that such a name as Tiokerville could not be
long to his fair golden haired,:blne eyed divinity,
but still snob strange thing& do happen, that, on
returning_ t) his place in lb* stalls, be asked the
person mi l t to. him "whether Mal was Lady

object of his &freedoms was Seated.
"No, Lady Tmkerwille is eighty, if she is a
day ;" was the reply. ''The old woman who is
sitting next to the besettifulAoung gkl you are
looking at might be Lady 'finierville, but she is
not. I don't know who she is. That young
man witt;kAtur just entered 'the box," continued
George's informant, "is Captain Mechi, of the
Bengal Cavalry; a celebrated billiard player, and
other things besides, and I shouldn't wonder if
the old fellow—the husband of the family—were
his uncle. I know be has a rich uncle, and he
is said to be very attentive to him, although he
seems just at present, to be a precious deal more
attentive to his wife."
