" Not very," sold Julia, slowly.
" And,you think you know all about
him, I dare say. Are you very much In
love with him ?"
" Not desperately," answered Julia,
smiling. "At the same time I confess
that I am strongly prepossessed In hln
" And thlB prepossession Is likely to
become a warm sentiment. Well, my
little niece, as you have requested my
advice, I will give it. I do not object to
this lover of yours. Indeed I know
nothing against him. Hut then I know
too little of him at any rate to be able to
form a deliberate opinion of his charac
ter. If I mistake not this Is also your
ease. Now it is my theory that no
woman ought to marry unless she is
sufficiently well acquainted with her in
tended husband, to have a pretty con
fident assurance of leading a happy 11 fo
with him. I therefore counsel you to
delay giving your answer for a month,
and In that time I will contrive to be
come better acquainted with him."
"Your advice is good," said Julia,
thoughtfully, "and I will follow it."
" Thank you," said her uncle, kindly,
" for the confidence you have reposed in
my judgment. I sincerely hope that
the young man will prove to be all that
we can desire."
Edward Fltzroy was in business in tbe
neighboring city. He had embarked a
small property inherited from his father,
in a dry goods establishment on Wash
ington street,and having a good business
tact was driving a flourishing trade.
His acquaintance with our heroine had
commenced during a summer residence
at the village which she made her home.
It was not strange that he should have
been attracted by Julia. Her' gayety,
vivacity and beauty made her generally
admired, and had anything else been
requisite the reputation of being her
uncle's heiress would have procured her
suitors. But it is not necessary to dwell
further on this point of our story. We
are interested to learn how Uncle
Henry's plans succeeded.
He first made cautious inquiries rela
tive to the young man's business
standing, all of which were answered
satisfactorily. But this did not satisfy
him. He wished to see for himself.
Accordingly ho purchased a suit of
clothing so different from that which he
was accustomed to wear, that with a
pair of green goggles superadded he
felt convinced would disguise him suf
ficiently for his purpose. Thus attired
he lounged into the store, and inquired
for some trifling article. He was pur
posely very slow in being suited. Mean
while he watched with some attention
the bearing of Fltzroy, who was trading
with a fashionably attired lady at a little
distance. Nothing could be more polite
or obsequious than the conduct of the
young tradesman. With unwearied as
siduity he took down from tbe shelves
and displayed a large stock of merchan
dize, until the fastidious taste of the lady
was at length suited.
" ne is attentive to his customers,"
thought Uncle Henry. " That is a good
sign. But perhaps it may be simply be
cause she la rich and fashionable. Here
is a customer of a different kind. Let
me see how he treats her."
At this moment a woman very poorly
dressed with a worn and weary expres
sion, as if she were better acquainted
with the dark than the bright side of
life, entered the street door and advanc
ed to tbe counter. The affable smile
which Fitzroy had worn in his inter
view with the last customer disappeared
and in its place was seen- a supercilious
" I would like to look at some cali
coes," said the customer.
' Here are some," said Fitzroy ,curtly,
pointing to a pile which lay upon the
He did not stir from his position, but
gazed at the woman with an air that
seemed to Indicate how utterly Indiffer
ent he was to her patronage.
"Will you show me some of them?"
asked the woman mildly.
" There they are, ma'am ; you can see
them for yourself."
" What is the price of this V" she in.
quired, looking at tho one which lay nt
" Nlncpenee a yard."
" I don't altogether like the figure,"
she said, after a pause.
" Don't you V" returned Fltzroy, In
differently. The customer begun to examine some
of the other prints. Of course In doing
so she was obliged to disarrange them
" Don't pull them all to pieces," said
Frltzroy, rudely, "There isn't much
dllleronce in them. You'd better take
tbe first that comes. How much do you
" Well, you had better let me cut It
off quick, ns I can't stand walling on
one customer all day."
Thus importuned, the woman hastily
indicated one of tbe prints, and the re
quired quantity was measured off.
Change was hastily made and the woman
deported. Her piano was taken by a
wealthy lady like the first, the rustle of
whoso silk proved an Immediate pass
port to tho good graces of the young
" I don't like that," thought Undo
Henry, who had not been unobservant
of this little scene. "He has no right
to treat one customer better than an
other. At all events all ought to be
treated with common civility, whatever
their attire may be, or however small
may be their purchase. These gloves
are half-a-dollar, are they ? (these words
were addressed to the shopman who
wbb waiting upon him), very well,
will take them."
Meanwhile the woman who had Just
purchased the calico re-en tered the store
with a hurried step and a look of
trouble. Hlie waited until Fltzroy was
through with the lady upon whom he
was attending, and then pressed to the
" Well, what now '"' asked the young
man, supercllllously. '
" I believe you made a mistake ulmut
tbe change you handed me."
"A mistake I" he repeated. "It is
"But," said the woman, anxiously,
"'don't you remember I gave you a two
dollar bill, and you only banded me
back two quarters."
"Wasn't that right?"
" No I bought ten yards at nlnepence

" Then I must have given you back

" O,you'll find the other in your pocket
If you haven't spent it," said Fltzroy,
The woman colored.
" Indeed, sir, I know I fun right," she
" It is for your interest to," he re
turned with a sneer.
"And you won't rectify tho mistake
then i"' said the poor woman faintly,
" You make a great fuss about a quar
ter of a dollar,"
"It is of somo importance to me,"
said the woman.
"I can't return it," said Fitzroy,
shortly. " There is no end to the im
positions that would be practised upon
me, if I allowed everybody to come buck
and claim that they had not received
tbe rlgut change."
Here Uncle Henry who had listened
with Indignation to this scene, inter
" You are mistaken," said he decided
ly. " I saw you hand this lady her
change, and you passed her but two
Fitzroy glanced at the speaker. It bus
not been mentioned that Uncle Henry,
the better to conceal his identity was
coarsely dressed .arid accordingly Fitzroy
set him down as a person of no conse
quence. He therefore answered haugh
" I shall need more than your word,
my good sir. How do I know but you
are in league"
"Good morning sir," said Undo
Henry, abruptly. " You may hereafter
regret this gratuitous insult. Madam,
will you allow me a word with you ?"
The woman followed htm out of the
shop, while Fltzroy in no very pleasant
mood muttered about tbe " airs of these
"Madam," said Uncle Henry, when
they were in the street, " will you ac
cept from me this piece of gold which
will in a measure atone for this man's
rudeness and your loss. Nay, no thanks.
What I have witnessed has been worth
more to me than the small sum."
At the end of a month Edward Fltzroy
ame to receive Julia Denham's answer
to his suit. He felt quite confident of
success a confidence which was some
what diminished by the coldness with
which she returned his greeting.
" I must decline the honor of your al
liance," said she,iu answer to bis urgent
" Hut what can have wrought this
change in you ?" ho asked, his counte
" I must refer you to my uncle."
Uncle Henry, who entered the room
Immediately, explained In few words In
what way they had gained an unfavora
ble Impression of his character. He
concluded by snylng : " The man who
Is obsequious to the rich and imperti
nent to the poor, shall not with my con
sent marry one in whom I feel an in
A year afterwards Julia formed an ul
llaneo with one more worthy of her, and
never had cause to regret adopting her
A VERY PIOuT YOUNG MAN.
ARE of pickpocket V" re
lated a benevolent old gentle
man as he glanced at a placard posted In
the car which he was riding. "Dear,
me, how sad that such a warning should
be necessary In a Christian land ?"
" Yes, sir," said the young man next
him, " but It's best to be careful for there
may be pickpockets in this very car. I
know all about that, sir. I've been
rescued from the lowest depth. I was
a pickpocket once, sir."
" Dear me," suld the old gentleman,
" I'm a respectable person now. Yes,
sir, I'm very respectable, ask anybody
about Jim Tllks and they'll tell you that,
but I was brought up a thief. I was
born among thieves, and took tho trude
naturally, and I used to pick pockets
when I was ten years old. You needn't
look at yours, if you please, sir. I've
been converted since, and go to meeting
regular. You could trust me with un
told gold now.
" But as I said, I was a thief, and I
might have been one yet If it hadn't
been for what happened at ltlckady
station, where I was sitting waiting for
any old lady's reticule, or any forgetful
person's parcel, or even an umbrella, or
a pocket-handkerchief.as might be drop
ped by chance. For folks that's anxious
about gettin' on the right train at the
right time, and nobody to do anything
but snub 'em, which is what tbe officials
are apparently paid to do' ain't as care
ful of their portable property as they
would be otherwise. When I was a
wicked sinner, I used to take advantage
of that, you know. You couldn't bribe
me to do It now oh, no.
" But as I said, I was a-lounglng about
there, and in came a gentleman with a
long basket. It was the curlousest
basket I ever saw. Had two handles
and a padlock. Never saw such a basket.
There was a cord about it, too.' He put
it down In the corner as he looked for
his pocket-book, and he spoke to a gen
tleman who was standing near, and
seemed to know him.
"Uotit'he suld, "and it's cost me
enough, I can tell you, but I wanted it
for the collection couldn't do without
it. Ho proud of It I brought it along
myself. Whew ! five minutes only, and
I haven't my ticket," and he rushed
toward the office.
" The other man looked at the banket
a minute and then walked away, and
that was my time. I crept up to the
Das net and loon it up and walked away
in another direction. No body noticed
me, I didn't run, of course. I just went
out of the station and down under the
trees, and "what I meant to do was to
take the valuables out of the basket and
leave it there.
" I'd made up my mind that it was
something very valuable, but what it
could be I couldn't guess. I took off the
cord first and then I took the key that
hung beside the padlock and unlocked
that, and lifted up the cover a little.
Just then there was a noise and I turned
, " When I found it was nothing to be
afraid of, I turned back. I opened the
cover wider and peeped in ; but there
was nothing there, the basket was
empty not a thing in it.
" Why, gracious mo I" said I ; only
not in them words I was a wicked
sinner then" what does this mean ?
An empty basket! And what did he
mean by talking of its being valuable?"
And there was I, running a risk for
" A risk. Why, I was done for, for
nothln' ; for here were the police after
me ; at least, a big arm went around my
wrist, all of a sudden like ; and when I
jerked it only held me closer ; and what
was that another arm ?
" Well, sir, I thought I should Just
give up that minute, for there and then
I knew that what was twisting about
me was something worse than even a
policeman's arm to such as I was then.
" It was a snake a great snake the
kind they put in menageries. Boa con
strictoryes, sir that was the kind a
boa constrictor ; and now I remembered
the face of the gentleman who bad the
basket he was the menagerie man, I
had stolen a basket with a snake in it,
and it had slipped out when I opened
the cover, and now it had me.
"Tight, sir, was no word. It was
twisted around me until I had very lit
tle breath left, but with what I did have
I set up a yell. (Would you believe If,
sir, the first person that heard me was
that menagerie man ; he was looking
for his snake, I suppose,
" Bless my heart," he says, when ho
saw me "blesB iny heart. Well, thel
biter bit, if ever It happened. You stole
tho basket, my friend, and out of it,
came the thief-catcher. Now keepstltl ;
don't move for your life. There's Juxl
one chance for you." ,
Bays I !" Hurry, please, sir; I'm u
"He did hurry. He took a bottle mil.
of his pocket, aiid-out of another lie
took a kind of folding cup, and ripened
it out. Then he poured something from
the bottle into the cup. ,
" Milk," says he, " It may tempt him .
away ; If not, soy your prayers.frlcnd ;"
and I tell you that was an anxloun
" At first I thought he had dono for
me, for the snake only seemed to twlt
tighter; but In a minute the head poked
out towards the cup and I felt him drop
off, and saw him colled about tho milk
cup. I didn't wait to see him feed. 1
" But It was a lesson to me. It put,
an end to my course of wickedness.--This

honest young man than I am living now.

old gentleman" very. But ho is evi

He put his hand In his pocket for hl
pocket-handkerchief. It was gone so

conscientious young man.
A Monkey Story.
I MUST tell you of something that
hapjiened one day last summer,
when I was at the Zoological Garden in
Among the persons standing nioun I
the cage wliere the monkeys were kept,
was an old lady who had on a pair of
gold rimmed spectacles. AH at once, h
big brown monkey stretched out hit
paw between the bars, snatched the
spectacles, and scampered away, chaU
terlng and grinning with delight.
Of course, the poor lady was in dis
tress. The keeper came to the rescue,
and, by driving the monkey alKiut the
cage with a long pole, forced him at lat
to drop the spectacles. Itut one of tLe
glasses had come out of it ; and this the
thief still held in his mouth, and refused
to give up.
The keeper followed him sharply wltf
the pole. Away he went, swinging
from one rope to another ,screaming anil
scolding all the time, until the keeper
was so tired, that I feared he would
have to let the monkey keep the gla.
But this the keeper said would never do;
for he knew, that, If be let the monkey i
carry the day, he could never control '
Ho the keeper still plied his pole. The
monkey dodged It as well as he could,
until the blows came so thick and fast,
that bo could bear them no longer,when
he opened his mouth, and let the gla
Now comes the funniest part of the
story. Tbe glass fell quite near the bars,
just where the N old lady was standing,
and a gentleman took ber pa rami, which
had a hooked handle, to draw it within
reach. But be put the parasol In a little
too far, and it it slipped out of his hand.
Instantly a large yellow monkey wrap
. ped his long tail around it, and started
off. Imagine the feelings of the poor
old lady first robbed of ber spectacles,
and then of her parasol. ,
But her property was all recovered at
last; the robbers were both punished;
and she went on her way in peace.
(7 About nine o'clock yesterday
morning a farmer-looking man entere f
a grocery store on Woodward avenue,
having a Jug In his hand, and said f
one of the clerks :
" I want two pounds of nails, a;.
"Next poor," promptly replied the
clerk, motioning with his thumb.
The former entered tbe store next
door, placed the Jug on the counter ami
" I want a gallon of molasses and '
" Next door," said the proprietor, mo
tioning towards the grocery.'
Tbe farmer looked at him for a min
ute, then went out and re-entered the
other store. As the clerk came forward
again the man with the Jug remarked :
" Why In blazes couldn't you have
told me in the first place that I coulJ
get tbe molasses here and the nails next
door? What's the use of being so mighty
hightoned about nothing." Detroit
