Hes lei' draY ' - rtincioWn' to the parlor
to execute one of the numerous missionS
with which she washonored by the less
energetic members of the family. •
. • As She stood there, she was startled
by the soUnd of approaching footsteps,
and looked anxiously around for come
way of escape.,
I:Jetty-might:well bepardoned for not
caring to be seen in her present attire;
especially as she recognized the vbice of
one of the intruders. Though 'near the
middle of the afternoon, she still wore,
her morning dress, which though clean;
was sadly wrinkled ; her collar was
awry, and the heavy coils of her hair
loose and disarranged by the ever rest
less fingers of little Willie.
Unable to make her ~escape by the
dOer, she sprang to. - t,he - recess is one of
the w ilidOws, - Al taw inetlie heathy cur
tains around her, so as to of
conceal her from view.
She had hardlytime to dO this, when
Edward Gaylord: and' Charles Clifford:
entered, and taking; a seat upon the sofa,
very near to where Hetty stood, half

`J - Tom `P, ITS pub d ed - r, Clifford .
`Miss lletty homely Well, yes; I
think, on the whole, that she has a
good claim to that title.
Here the conversation was'interrupt
ed by the entrance of Laura and Jane.
Poor letty's mind. 'Wok, lb little of
the lively conversation that follpWed;
though its laughter and ~ R ierrimeut
jarted harshly on her loving and sorely
wounded heart. Site thought their
visit would never be over and as soon
as it.Ois,,and, she had an, opportunity;
to"escalie 1.6 her chamber, she burst into
tear's; - weeping foi• soiree, minutes with
out restraint.
Poorehildl • ,She hardly knew; until
.was time rudely destroyed;:tholittle
romance that her active imagination
had been weaving. Now; elle wakeonL
seious that in her heart she: had 'believ
ed that Mr. o,lifford liked, even admir
ed her.
ller cheeks burned as she recalled
how often she had unconsciously ex
pr!•ssed this feeling and the pleasure it
gave her. And all this time he had
considered hey, homely! • And her eyes
lilted afresh With tears at the thought.
You, - doubtless, consider her very
foolish, reader. Dear lady, if such you
are ; wise and philosophic .as we will
admit you to be, Wolild you like to be
called homely We doubt whether
any woman dues like it, or whether,she
everlack noWletlges,' to -herself, that, tilie
is so; She nuiy. adnilt that she 'l4 hot
han'dsome, that she'•baS - features quite
at variance with the lines of artistic
beauty, but that she is s o destitute of
personal attractions as to 'tnerit'the ap
pellation of homely is what low women
have the courage to bellieve of them
selves, or talienr from the lips of others.
But Hetty, with•all• her foolishness,
was no coward, She Afas not afraid to
look truth in the lace, however disa
'gveabW:mlght.,:,ll6—tbe story it told;
and going to the mirror, she gazed long
and earnestly on the features reflected
there,. scrutinizing it in.every detail, as
.she had never done before. '

As I have told you I was in love: I
felt that my happiness depended ,on the
possession of one of those twins. .T3tit
for whom should I ash the parents?—
Honestly it was no matter which one I
-had, US affection made no choice.
On a lovely 'eve in September, one
sister was from home. Now, thought I,
here is a surety that I can talk a whole
evening to one of these dual phenome-r
mi. As she entered the parlor, said I,
'How do you do,
Miss Hannah?' You

. Sue.' 'Are you
,humbugging?' 'Tridy not; I tell you
sincerely. • You now address Sue Gro
ver.' I saw she looked unusually ten
der, and taking advantage of her falter
, 'ing voice and tremulous manner, I de
clared my love, and 8110 returned it with
'all the ardor of her .true and impassion
ed nature. I summoned the, old folks ;
told onr devotion ; gave prospects, and
made- all essential revelations.
The senior Grovers gave us their
blessings, and assured its that they
'.would see our, course of true love should
run smooth.
But what if that other girl should
come in ? What. a pretty, mix !' How
would I ever khow my girl? • Though
again I assure you it would have( made
no difference. I. would have proposed
to Hannah just the same.' My only
,trouble was in the multitude of embar
rassments incident to' the norf-distin
guishment. Qn_ this groundl had' a
genuine &bid*. '
Before Hannah returned, I- invited
Sue to taken walk: n thegreen. When
opposite the center of , the church, I
spoke of,the betrothal ring, nd request

wore. She took it of and I' carelessly

grieved; yet from the fact that Hannah
lived, my agony was but temporary. I
returned two weeks after the funeral.—
My sister-in-law wore'neither betrothal
nor diamond rings. There was nothing
to be gained by it, and they were laid
aside. My friends, I atu extremely
sensitive; a mere-child ;yet believe
me, when I tell that the Presence of
Hannah was a perfect bud: Speedy res

weep. Was she not the san;te as Sue in
all respects? True, when t!.I saw the
family sad, I was troubled ; but only
on account of their grief. I had none°
of my own. All that I loved was in
exact duplicate, and that moved before
as of yore. Yes, I confess that no hus
band ever suffered less. ,
In eighteen months I stood in the

it appeared that 1 was enacting a farei

But what could the babies do to the

found out. There was a box of lime,
half air slaked, in an-obscure corner of
the barn, and the little, sharp eyes had
found it, and, standing on tiptoe, the
little hands could just reach over the
edge of the barrel. So they proceeded
to "peed kitty." Patter, patter, went

and never could think of letting a red

and Seth,,lre also kinder thought that
way. We packed up our duds,• and.
prepared to he off just as soon - its we
were sure that all the prowling red
skins were a bed, for we won't more,
than half a mile fronn one of their
towns, and didn't care about their knoNlq

'We wanted to start as soon ;as we
could, for the moon rose about mid
night, and then all would be as light as

anywhere between prairie and Prairie,
and the stars shone like so many; deers'
eyes in the forest.
I guess that it must have been about

the task is undertaken from respect to
the Convention, and a desire to suggest
some thoughts that may , be of general
service. Having rested comfortably in
the belief that the Chairman would do -
his duty, his late refusal has prevented
due investigation and the'ret'ore these
remarks are offered with diffidence.
The dictionaries define Ethics as the
science of. Manners and Morals. Ecti.'
torial Ethics is a novel phrase, appar
ently incongrous, yet if the two words
have never been practically united let
it now be done. indissolubly. It may
seem a singular' juxtaposition, as eat
tprs, as a class or species, are not deem
pd_ansenable to ordinary rules. Their
manners or morals 'are developed by
peculiar circumstances. The necessities
bf their position demand or excuse ap
parently such feature as would be cen
surable in - others. AS the lady said to
the merchant, that it was-such a_ pity
that lying was sinful, seeing it is so es
sential to his business; so it may be
said that the accepted principles of
courtesy and morality are at variance
with successful journalism. t This Is a,
serious, error. Editorial tactics involVol
the proper disposition of -available
forces, but not a dishonorable.warfare. l r
The manners of an editor should be
those of a gentleman. Ile ought to ,b 0
the quintessence of politeness. The
suavity that' flows from a kind heart
should be a prominent characteristic.
In England the Press is regarded as the
Fourth Estate. In America it disputes
supremacy with the most honored of
the Learned' Professions.
An editor should ever be civil to his
subordinates, whether they scribble
local, set type or ink fora* He should
be prompt in paying, liberal in wages,
recognizing the rights of the employed
and treating the with due'respect as
entitle* to honorable consideration,
though in, perhaps to porarily, a more
obscure sphere. He hould be civil to
those who do not p trouize him, and
courteous to those _ who do...._As _one.

the people, he should be public-spirited,
or ever ready to suggest or defend meas

his manners ought to befree from criti
cisms as a writer he should treat op
ponents with equal courtesy.
• It is a pitiful sight to behold two men
quarrel in the street, while acrowd enjoy
the scene. It is more pitiful to witness
the personal contests between exasper
ated editors. Each strives to rival the
other in opprobrious epithets, and' the
victor is proud of the triumph which
degrades him immeasurably. He may
astonish his readers at his • smartness,'
but he does not acquire their ?respect.
Many men who would scorn. by, dispute
in public, will, as editors, bandy epi
-theta and indulge in villifying or fero
cious language WI their vocabulary is
exhausted. Some years ago, two editors
in Schuyler county, who by common
consent were the champions of the
Court House location, waxed savage in
their weekly warfare. The-towns were

question were overshadowed Jay curios

as a blackguard. The pugnacious ele
ment of the people was thirly divided
between their respective advocates.—
" Brick " Pomeroy had not then risen
to the intellectual''horizon,' and the
capacity of the English language for
vituperation was unknown. Finally
one of these editors called the other an
" idiotic baboon." The climax. was'
reached. "vas the depth of humilia
tion to be called a baboon, but to be de

was crushing.
We do not deem it wise to call anoth-
er editor " a fool," though it may be
often 'true, as such an epithet degrades
the Profession. We have never done
so, though sorely tempted, as we could

could edit a newspaper who, really de

chance one is exalted to-the honorable
position of an editor, it does no good to
express an holiest opinion, since it re
acts upon all, as the public is led to in
