What did the old fogy mean ? Did he

"Done I"

“That you come to my estate in South
Carolina with a susceptible heart—that
you are not engaged to another.”
"I accept the condition" said 1, grasping
hie baud; yen have lost the het."
"Not vet, Bob—wait 31 hit."
IS was rather foolish in the old fellow to
make such n silly bet ; but I was sure
could resist the attractions of my cousin
even though she should prove to be a `'e•
nus, that I considered the money already
mine, and what was far better, that I had
won the victory over him.
That night uncle Ned started for his
plantation in South Carolina.
My lather died three years before this
conversation, leaving me an ample fortune.
Ills two brothers had been in South Caro-
lina for thirty years, where the tether of
Rosalie died, leaving my uncle Ned her
I had often been told that Rosalie was a
very pretty girl ; but she had been to the
North only once, and then I was travelling
in Europe, so I had never seen her.
I had written uncle Ned promising to
spend a month with him in the autumn.—
Business had called hint to Boston where
our interview occurred. Be had more
than once expressed a desire that his bro
ther's property might remain in the family
and pressed me to unite my fate to that of
his beautiful niece.
This was out of the question. A ' , made
.up muicW' was my ab unination. Cer•
tain'y I had no other reasons for my vio
lent prejudices against the marriage. I
considered it a sacred ob.igation to full in
love before I took a wife, and the idea of
being pledged to Rosalie before I had seen
her myself was so absurd that I had not
patience to think of it.
And then 1 had a principle for my gui
dance in allairb of the heart, which abso
lutely forbade me to think of such a thing
as a "marriage for cnnvenience."
The.auttinin came and I paid my pro
posed visit to uncle Ned's plantation in
South Carolina.
I was disappointed in my cousin Rosalie.
She was a tolerably good looking damsel,
but in lily opinion very far from being like
the beautiful creature she had been pictu

uncle. 'Did you ever see such lips, such

And the old fellow punched MC in the
ribs, and roared with laughter till he near

I couldn't for the life of me ~ce what he
was laughing nt.

'Who's that, uncle Ned?'
This remark was called forth by the
sudden appearance, upon the gravel walk,
of the loveliest creature 1 ever beheld, and
that, considering 1 have flirted with the
belles of Paris, Naples and Rome, is say
ing a great deal. I was confounded by
the sudden apparition, and springing from
my scat as if an electric shock had aroused
the slumbering blood in my veins, I stood
bolt upright before her.
