" Oh, I suppose you wanted a stiff, ceremon ious proposal in form." I observed; ?? but I'm no fcir Charles tlrandison, Kitty?Katharine. I would say; therefore don't be foolish; be con tent to know m plain words that my whole heart is yours; and have the good sense to accept your first offer, since your second may not be so .good But in vain were my arguments and reason- I ings. Kitty was determined not to accept her first ofler. and finding her reeolute I changed tone, and acquiescing in her views, confess- i ed that I too had a certain pride on that point, r and -hould be rather mortified to know that my wife had never had any offer but that I ! had rnyseli made her; and so 1 promised to sus- 1 pend my suit till Kitty should be so fortunate j as to receive an offer from some other quarter. I Now. not far from where Kitty dwelt, there was a favorite dell, or bower, or something of that kind, to which she daily repaired with some chosen volume to sit and read All my endeavors to persuade her to allow me to ao- j company her thither had always been quite in vain. Kitty was firm in preferring her undis- I tarbed solitude, and I was daily doomed to an hour or two of the mosses during her romantic j woodland visit. lu pursuance with this custom. Kitty set out 1 ??iuu after the conversation I have sketched, ' declining, as usual, my offer of companionship. Not ui >re than half an hour had elapsed after j *he had reached her favorite scat, ere her at tention attracted by a young gentleman who was fishing in the bruok which flowed near j her Kitty drew back a little on seeing him. I but her curious eye occasionally wandered to ward the stranger. The latter no sooner perceived his fair obser- ! ver than he bowed with an air of politeness, and advancing a few steps, ventured to address a lew words of common-place greeting. The ' young man s words were indeed common-place, but his eyes were far more eloquent than his i t >ngue?they plainly informed the fair Kitty that she had found another admirer. Kitty, ' highly flattered, received the stranger's ad van- J oe* graciously, and the youth beingby no means I bashful, half an hour found them chatting easi- { Jy and gaily on various topies of interest. Kit- ! -'y s stay in the woods was something longer j zhan usual that afternoon. " W hat is the matter7'' I asked, on meeting her ?oon after her return home. " Your eyes ! sparkle, and you look as pleasant as though j"u had met a fairy in your afternoon ramble," - It if better than a fairy," cried Kitty. \ breathlessly, " it's a young man." " Indeed!I ejaculated, with a whistle. " Yes. James, she replied. 44 and he is w ? ii-iudsome?so agreeable?so delightful, that I can t ?ay how things might go if he were to make me one of these days my second offer " 4 \ .?? can t impose on me in that kind of way, eweet Kitty, so don t attempt it, I exclaimed. , ? bound the impudent fellow, whom I won t object to speaking a bit of my mind to is not handsomer or more agreeable than I am my Kitty laughed aloud in derision. 44 He's a thousand times handsomer than you are." she cried, scornfully, '"and as much more entertain ing as he is more handsome." ? don't be too cutting, too cru el, I began, but Kitty drew hersell up with dignity. ?? 1 hey call me Katharine, who do speak to iiie sir, she said. ?

She however bad scarcely succeeded in fixing her attention on ita pages before the pertinacious stranger reap peared, and declaring that fishing was dull work, and that the fiah would not bite, he com posedly seated himself at Kitty's feet, and beg ged to know the name of the book she was rea ding "Tennyson's Princessreplied Kittv curtly. I he imperturble stranger declared the book a great favorite of his, and began to talk so entertainingly of books and authors, that Kitty, warmed by the subject, forgot to be dignified, and an animated discourse of favorite au thors ensued. Afterward the young man beg red permission to read her a few passages he had selected, which were the very ones Kitty loved best; he read them well, too, and Kitty's eyes 9P*rkl?d with delight as she listen ed Turning at last to the exquisite concluding interview between Ida and the young prince, the stranger s voice became more and more earnest as he read, till coming to the words I? deed I love thee; come ^ leld thyself up : mine hopes and thine are one ? Accomplish thou mv manhood and thyself l^ay thy sweet hands in mine, and trust to me? he suddenly flung the book aside, exclaiming. "What words! what words! What would I not give for courage to utter them to the being I love best on the earth !" The stranger paus ed a moment, and then broke forth impetuous ly : "This forced silence is all in vain?the words I would repross will come In vain have I striven to be prudent?cautious?to allow you time-not to startle you?lovely, bewitch ing Miss Katharine?you are yourself the ob ject of my socret adoration?to whom I would say much if I dared,'' and thereupon the youth rather melodramatically fell on one knee, and forthwith proceeded to make Kitty a very plain | ofler of his hand. Meanwhile Kitty had arisen fr.-m her seat, and recovering from her astonishment, she drew herself up with dignity and replied, " I hardlv know, sir, what you mean by your strange con duct The liberty you have taken has made me very sensible of my own imprudence in having allowed the advances of a stranger so presum lng an error Igshall be careful not to repeat.*' So saying, my proud little Kitty (never had she looked so handsome) turning from the stranger * r k?7.' and wa'ked directly home. 1 did not see Kitty till some time after hd* return, perhaps she was recovering spirits in her room, for when I met her she was a* full of mischief as ever. " Well, James, why don't you ask me about my adventures to-day? ' he inquired " Because,'' I replied. "I didn't suppose you would be so imprudent as to go again to-day where you would be likely to encounter the in solent puppy who presumed to address you yes terday." ' ?u 1 the ,ca9t exP?**t him to be there, said Kitty, blushing and somewhat con fused. " but he was there.' " Of coune," I replied, gruffly. " Well, was your Adoma as handsome and agreeable ils ever?" ^ '? More so ?" cried Ki ty. recovering her com posure ; he looked more Massanillo-like than ever in his fishing dress ; and for entertainment he first read me all the finest part of Tenny son a Princess, and then made a marriage pro posal. and I don't think any man could be ex pected to do more in one afternoon ?" "I should think not, indeed,'" said I; "pray what reply did you make to the rascal ' that you had a friend at home who would be happy to kick him well for his insolence V "Far from it," said Kitty, '? what my reply was is my secret?and his; bnt for you, my poor James I'm sorry for you-i s all over with you. and your offer." ?' good for nothing little deceitful puss criod I, losing all patience ; there never was a more arrant dissembler living. Behold, how plain a tale shall you put down ! for lo, I myself, (hsguised merely 6y a little paint, a fishing blouse, a false moustache, and a change in the arrangement of my hair, was in my own person this elegant, captivating, handsome, agreeable stranger, whose praises you have beeL so lavishly sounding." t4 ,f??r Kitty wa* completely confounded ?

" My own dear, gracious, winning, bewitch ing, most kinable Katharine," said I, " shall it be as I 9ay?" " If mamma chooses." whispered Kitty. And so I persuaded the sweetest and prettiest giri in the country to accept her first and only lover, and though to this day my merry little wife of ten complains that I defrauded her, by my tricks, of her natural, womanly right of break ing two or three hearts, at least, ere she made one man supremely blest, still she generally concludes her reproaches in a manner most flat tering to my vanity, by declaring that she had two offers after alL and that each of them was worth a thousand common ones.
