A LEAP-YEAR WOOING. it mellvillb bkli. I.?Ton Pi doer a.^d I. Tom Pidger nnd I are old ftMocifttes. He wns odc oi tuy earneni ecnool companions. and I loved him like a brother. My heart became eo full of love for Tom that it could not contain k ail, so I disponed of the surplus by falling violently in lore with bis sister?a very fine, nice young lady, about a bead and shoulder* taller than myself. I recollect of sending her a valentine. in which a military-looking man was depicted kneeling in a green lawn, before a lady to whom he was making a passionate declaration of lore in a fat balloon which issued from his mouth?in which balloon I took the precaution to insert my initial?, to prevent the possibility of mistake as to the identity of the jiarty In return Misa Pidger presented me with a large nink heart make of sugar, {which Tom and I ate that same afternoon.but her own heart she reserved for one Raines, a banker, to whom she was married long before & I left school. \\ hen Tom and I grew up we removed to F.dinburg?he to collcge and I to a bank?and we took rooms together in Queen street. Tom b id always been rather a slovenly fellow, but now he became intolerably so. His hat gradually became limp and napless, and though I threw out very broad hints, and at length openly remonstrated with him. the same hat remained in constant use. I tried to shame him out of itbya^uring him that he would be taken for an Irishman; and once I bribed the milkboy with a penny to cry after him - Who's Iour hatter'' but all in vain His old coat,too, e wore till it became quite white along the peani- ana glazed at the elbow?. It was a very significant tact.that though I passed the college wuh him times without number, the seedy old gentleman who used to step out from the oorner of ><>uth College street, and say in a mysterious undertone, "Any ole does, sir?" invariably addressed himself to me And really it would haTe been a very gratuitous assumption to hat e supposed that Tom had any clothes older than those he wore As for his linen, I doubt if he would ever have changed it had not Mrs. Pritchard made point of taking a clean shirt into his bedroom ever/ cunuajr morning oeiore lorn was up, and carrying the dirty one off. s hair, from sheer neglect, became long and frouxy. One day, I remember, when he at down to breakfast, it seemed so dry and matted that I oould not forbear remonstrating. Positively, Tom," I said, " you must pay some attention to your personal appearance. Why, your head is like a mop '' ' Is it?" said Tom. ' Let it be so. It saves time and trouble.1' I would have urged that the ladies would never look at him if he went so shabbily, but as I knew Tom to be a woman hater?or rather a woman scorner, for he did not think them worth hating?I waived that point. So things went on as before. I was not a woman hater, for I had become enamored of Fanny Lowndes?such a dear little thing'?had wooed her, and. laot December. had proposed and was accepted. ' Tom." ?aid I, one night when we were having oar iwual pipe by tie fireside before Ejing to bed, ,4 Tom, yon know Fanny owndcs V* "I've heard enough about her," replied Tom. " Well. she and I are to be married next month." Tom fare a ahort laugh a* if he considered It a good joke. ' On my honor, Tom. we are." Tom'a (ace became grave in an instant, and after looking steadily at me for a few moments, to assure himself that I was serious, he slowlv took his pipe from hid mouth and laid it on the mautlepiece. 4- Well, Dick, I did not expect thij of jou." He looked moarnfallj into the fire a few momenU and thefa resumed : ' Hive you thought on this subject? Don't you know ** well as i do that once married you are done for; there is no backing out again ' At your time of life, too. with all the world before you ?why, it s suicide; moral and intellectual ?u- I icide Oh ! it cannot be !?you are joking." I assure you, my dear fellow, I am quite serious." " Than vnn ?> J -J ?? ?:JH 1 !' v *?? > j vm ?i v uvwcuicu. nam IQIQ, QHCO* irg hiin-t-lt back in his chair. 44 You think it is all j.<?etry I suppose Wait till the curtain lectured commence; you won't find much poetry in them. Children, too; why, my dear fellow, you 11 have your house swarming with them before you know what you are about Tbe rate at which children multiply is prodigious. Uave you read Mr. Malthus' book? hi? Fj-ay on Population'- Read that book.'' "I have read it." r "Head it again, and apply it to your own case. Poetry' you'll fiud precious little poetry about children It's bad enough to have these young Pritchard* caterwauling night and day in the nursery there; but wait till you are in the midst of the Babel and can't escape. Wait till you have to wipe the children's noses, like that poor wretched Pritchard. and be badgered out of bed whenever a child so much as coughs. You'll know what the poetry of lovers is then, my Trojan.'' Tom ooncluded with a prophetic jerk of his 1 J J ? * * * arau. >au proceeaea u> relight his pipe "I have always feared it might come to this.'' continued he. "since that time you fell in lore with my riater Maggy, ller marrying Baines was clearly a Providence in your behalf it wait another Providence that we came h?re and ?w the life that poor wretch leads between his wife and children. For my sake. Turn think again before you take thu insane step. ' Tom suioked quietly for a minute or two, then proceeded to illustrate the miseries of 1 J J i ' * - " weuuea iue ov passages from the life of Milton tn l .-helley. Coleridge and Byron, and I know not how many more. He then began a brief extract of Mr Malthas book, in the middle of whi.h I fell asleep and nearly fell forward into the fire So I got op and told him that it wai no use of talking, m the thing was all settledTow bade me good night with an air of profound compassion. and evidently gave me up for a lost sheep. II ?A PaOBLKM WHICH IS SATISFACTORILY Solved It might be about a fortnight after that Tom had occasion to be in Glasgow for a day or two On the evening of his return I noticed that he l.?>ke<l very abstracted. I did not pay much attention to the circumstance, bat it struck me that be was He smoked by the firtsi'le for an hour. I am sure, before retiriog: Jet all mv enoro u) gei min to taik wtrt fruitless. When I I turned, after saying something, and Mid. Don't you think so'" or "Strange that,wasn't it' Tom would start, and ejaculate, "Eh?" * if he had not the remotest idea of what I had been saying, as I really believe he had not. When Tom came home to dinner next day, I was amaied to aee that he had got his hair cut I would hardly have known him in the street "Halloo, Tom ! Got your hair out?" "Yes,'' replied Tom, with something of irritatioo in his tone, I thought. "Did you never see a fellow with his hair eat, before " I havn't seen you very often, Tom." i - >< uimo uv r?piT, ana u u NModl to annoy him I paid nothing mora about it- Bat reelly it did astonish ma; and my astonishment was by no meeas diminished whon I found that next morning be broshed it oeref jlly?oiled it too, I waa convinced; in feet. I found e bottle of heir-oil in hia drawer one morning when I ?w hunting for e pockethandkerchief Whet next should I find him doing but appearing in a eleen shirt every sconi day or so, ana actually quarreling with Mr* Priteherd once for net sterching the wri?tbendsr Then came e feshionabU hat, then e new peir of boota, ao amall that I oould j hive sworn Tom feet would never get into i them. I discovered too, (through Mrs Priteherd ) that Tom had taken to shaving in secret. and ?u daily on the outlook for whiakers. My amacemant wax unbounded I could not for th? life of me account for it; but as the change wm a good one, and as I remembered the rebuff I cot when I apoke of his hair, I considered it beet to keep qaiet. "Dick.'' said Tom to me at dinner one day, "this ia December, ia it not?" "December? Yea." "Very cold weather for December ?" "Well, rather." "I think." said Tom, "I would be the better of something warmer than thia old great coat of mine " "Of oourae you would I've said so often. You should get one of those Highland oloaks; they took very comfortable; they are fashionable too." And Tom actually came home that evening, in one, presenting, I most say, a very imposing appearance. And now Tom, who could not be coaxed oat of the house except in collage hours, evinced a ?adden propensity for afternoon walks?a positive passion for them. "Dick," he would My at tne very time when I used to enjoy a read by the fire; '-Dick, put on your hat, and let us have a stroll." I went, but it wax not a stroll. It was anything but a stroll. It wm a regular unvaried walk to Royal Circus, twice round the circus, and back again. It was the coldest and bleak est and most dismal round which ooald hare (been selected, Yet this route Tom would take, and no other. Soon, however, he gave over asking me to go?seemed anxious, in fact, that I shouldn't go One day, in particular, he suddenly appeared fully equipped, and said, "Well, I am off on a stroll.^' "Wait one minute,'1 said I, ''and I shall be with you." "Don't mind," said he; ' I shan't be long. It looks as if it were going to rain," and hurj ried out. The afternoon wore away?tea time came, yet Tom had not returned He didn't J return till half past ten. "Halloo. Tom, you have taken a tolerably long stroll to-nieht'" "Ah! I looked up to see my aunt. She's not very well just now." "Your aunt?" "Aunt Paterson?mother's sister. I didn't think you knew her. ' I certainly did not?had never heard of her, to my knowledge. Next day when we had finished dinner, we drew our chairs to the fireside, and I proceeded to make some observations on the condition of Italy. Oh, hang it!" cried Tom, clapping his hand to his coat-pocket, "I have forgotten to post that letter!" He threw on his hat and cloak, and off. Half past ten again before he returned. ' Halloo, Tom." I said, "you have taken a tolerably long time to post that letter." "No; I was up seeing my aunt." "Oh. yes! by the way, is she better tonight?" ' Not decidedly so; rather worse, I should say, if anything." " I am sorry For that; but come let us have a quiet pipe." "Not to-nirht, thank you." "What!" I exclaimed in considerable astonishment, for Tom smoked every night with the regularilv of clock-work. "Not smoke before going to bed!" "No; I find that it is not agreeing with me. I see Dr. Prout shows that it ruins the constitution." So Tom retired, and I sat and smoked alone, wondering whether Tom could be insane, and where this extraordinary change might be expected .to end. Next night I was up making some arrangements with Fanny for our approaching marriage. ' Oh. Dick!" she said, what a merry fellow Tom Pidgrer is!'' "Tom Pidger!" where did you see him',' ' Why, he took tea with us at Mrs. Purdie's last night. . . * * r? - .>irs raterson's. you mean." Mrs. Purdie's, Royal Circus. Julia, you know, was a school companion of mine. We bad such fan breaking the pipes in Tom s pocket; and at last, Julia made him get down on his knee* and promise that he would never smoke again." ' Ah!" said I, as the secret of Tom's metamorphosis and his aunt's illness (?) began to dawn upon my mind; "how does Tom come to know Julia Purdie?" I "He met her on the train coming from Glasriw some weeks ago. and fell in love with her, suppose, and she?(but you must not tell him, remember,)?she fell in love with Tom Poor | thing! she loves him to distraction, I believe. J 0, Tom is there almost every afternoon." This was precious news Keeping it to myself. however, I went home and found Tom fitting ruminating over the fire. "Ah, Tom. I thought I should have caught you smoking." "No, Dick, you won't catch me at that again I see,'' said he gravely, tapping himself all 1 over tbe waistcoat, "that I am better without it already." "Dear me, already! ThcnDr Prout must be quite correct. Oh! by the way, I have sad news for you, to-night. ' What"' enquired Tom. with a very long face. "I hear that your aunt is dead!" "Eh?" cried Tom, wheeling roand in his chair and giving me a look of curious surprise, which is quite indescribable. "Dead and gone, Tom, is your poor aunt? your mother's sister, you know! Mrs. Paterson?not Mrs. Purdie?oh, no!" You should have seen Tom's face all this time. Shame and merriment, curiosity and chagrin, chased each other off and on, so rapidly tbat they sometimes appeared to be all mixed up in the same iinrMiinn At ! ? ludicrous prevailed, and torn broke into shouts of laughter which it would have done your heart good to hear. He looked very red in the face, though being clearly a good deal ashamed of himself He made me tell how the secret had oome out, and finding that it really was out, be became quite gushing He made me it by him at the fireside and gave a minute ani circumstantial account of the whole transaction?how in returning from Qlasgow by express, he found himself in the same carriage with a fine old gentleman and his daughter? ". uch a beautiful girl, Dick "'?how be and the old gentleman conversed, and she listened ?listened with such interest that he thought within himself, "Well, here is a sensible girl, for once." Then how the old gentleman ensconced himself in a corner and fell asleep, and Tom found that he oould not keep his eyes off the young lady?"the most beautiful girl Dick" ?and more than that he caught her every now and then peeping slily at him, and when he eaugbt her bow she blushed ' "And I do believe." said Tom, "that I blushed too. f frit snch a?*uch ft sort of funny all orer, you know," Mid Tom, with ftn explanatory wave of the band. Then how the old gentlemen wok* up when the ticketa were oalled for, and chatted again, and presently diftcovered to the surprise and delight of all parties, that he and Tom's uncle, not Mr Patterson, but a real uncle this time, had served together in India. So he made Ton. shake hand with his daughter, and gave him his card, and told him to call whenever he happened to be in the neighborhood of Royal Circui Tom then proceeded with the subee> quent detail*, which be had got about htli through when I prevailed upon him to stop, fr>- tK. kJT r.. - ? -?~ ???(, m oonataeratton or tne ItUDtM of the hour. It ?u aotaally put two ia the morning 'Now to-morrow, Mid Tom u we parted for the night, "we might call together to ?ee Julia Yoa will be tore and like her, ah* i? aoeh a beautiful girl, Dick." Next day we did oall, ana Julia turned oat to be a mo#t beaatifal girl I don't think I have ever Men a aweeter little |irl?Fanny, of oourae, excepted. The week after Fanny and I were mar nod. and left town on ow marriage jaunt 4 III.?a difficrltv Satisfactorily ov*bCOMK. The morning following our return, I bad a note from Tom, stating that be would call that afternoon on very particular business I mentioned it to Fannj, who laughed, and appeared to know intuitively what this "very particular business" was. Tom came in time for dinner, but he ate next to nothing, and seemed uncommonly nervous. When the thi#gs were cleared away, and Tom and I were sitting aione with a tumbler of negus befora us, 1 broached th? subject. "This 'very particular business' of jours, Tom, what is it^" "Well," said Tom, fingering his glass nervously. "I shall tell you what it is. \ou know Julia?" "Of course I do." Tom gulphed down a quantity of negus, and resumed : "Well, I hare been thinking?am thinking, in fact?that ia?I want to marry Julia?that 's all about it;" and Tom. who had blushed the % " deepest crimson to the very roots of his hair, I made another gulph at the negus, and nearly choked himself. It was with great difficultj that I could keep from laughing at his embarrassment?but I did. "Tom," said I, very solemnly, "I did not expect this of you; at your time of life, too. with the world all before you! Why, it's suicide?moral and intellectual suicide. You think it's all poetry. Ha! my boy, wait till the curtain lectures commence?" "Oh! come, come, Dick, this is too bad." j said Toui, stirring his ne^us violently. "But do tell me this, Tom; have you calculated the prodigious rate at which children multiply7 Hare you read Dr. M*lthu* book ? Ho' Tom, Tom ! I could refrain no longer, and laughed right out, to the infinite relief of Tom, who laughed right out too, and got excessively jolly at his own expense. ' Now. then," you know what I want," said he, at length, "tell me how to go about it." "Why, propose." i 1 -? * - - A IUJ'UWJ ui course; out now to propose,? there's the rub. I attempted it on four different occasions, and always stuck at the ticklish bit. I thought to propose by letter, and began half-a-dozen different sheets, but could not write one to please me. I tried poetry, and failed there too. Now. Dick, what I want is this?i want you to tell we exactly how you managed it, and perhaps I could do so to.' "I popped the question in a very simple way?quite unpremeditated, too. I had been spending an evening with Fanny, and at last got up and said, (pulling out my watch?this one.) 'It is late. I must be off ' -Oh, no,' she said, "It can't be ten yet.' 'Look for yourself She looked and observed the landscape on the face here. Oh, what a sweet little cottage !' she said, pointing to it. 'Dear me, so it is, I never looked at it particularly before : What would you say, Fauny, to our taking a nice little c?ttag? like that for ourselves, eh, and set| tlinjr down there ?' Wall ?1 T - . .... umw wiu.'ntu, nllU A. j kissed her and said. shall I. love?' and she squeezed my hand, which means. 'Oh do.' and eo the thing wa.s settled." "By Jove!'' cried Tom, striking the table with his hand, "that's admirable' I eould manage that. I think. Dick, give me your watch for a night; there's nothing on the face of juiDe." The watches were exchanged in j an instant, and Tom who could not wait a iu >1 ment longer, put off for Royal Circus, in a 1 state of intense excitement. It aeetns that on the way Tom's exoitement became so overpowering that he was obliged to fortify himself with two separate glasses of brandy. He reached Col Purdie's about six o'clock, and in the course of half an hour or ao found himself alone with Julia. Apprehenaive that if he lost this opportunity he might get no other that night, be pulled out the watch and said : "Getting late. Julia, I must be off " "Late, why it is not seven yet." " Isn't it Look for yourself.'' said Tom. turning the face of the watch towards her; "ah' your watch is not right; look here." Julia looked " Why it is not seven on yours either'' "Dear me." said Tom with anas OUIlipilUU t'l grwm astonishment, "neither is it I Pretty landscape thai??this here." "So it is; very sweet cottage." '-Very sweet cottage"' repeated Tom with great energy * I say, Julia, what would you?what would you say?it would ooat to engrave that?" Alas! for p'K>r Tom, he had failed once more. Of this, however, I was ignorant, and called next morniDg to ascertain how he had succeeded Tom was out, and as 1 could not wait. I tat down to scribble a Dote inviting him up that night to tell me the result. I took his desk, aud was rumaging for a scrap of paper, when my eye fell on a sheet scribbled and | blotted all over with what I at once perceived to be Tom's matrimonial proposals in verse On the first page he had collected a host of rbymirg words to be introduced as they migl t happen to suit his turn There were bliss and kiss, sing and ring, life and wife, and many other-sentimental monosyllables. Then there was Julia and peculiar, with a query after it; also Purdy with sturdy, and huray-gurdy, but he had drawn his pen through these He even attempted Pigder, but apparently without sac cess. on me next page were his numerous effort# to put these together after various models " To be or not to be, that is the question." Then a blank line ending with the word ' digestion" scored out. After that came? " Not a word can I speak, not a letter or note Can I write to convey my suggestion " followed by two blank lines ending with the word " question." Then came an adaptation of a popular song? " Beautiful star' for star thou art, Twinkling over my smitten heart; O, that I could call thee mine! Star of my bosom : star divine!" After this were some curious hexameters about? " His heart being cold and black, and his home full of sadness and sorrow;" and at least half-a-dozen copies, with varieties of his greatest and final effort, which was fairly copied out by itself in the centre of the last page? "I am thine; Wilt thou be mine? Tell me, tell me, sweetest Julia. Say the wordie. Darling Purdle, None can love you more or trulier. Mv hMrt la fnnH ' Afl parallel beyond, Although my poetry's peculiar." There war* manj other verses and fragment* of versea, but thin was ovidently the master| piece. I bad scarcely finished my note when Turn came in. His dejected look told bia ?toiy at once. "Come, come, Tom, too mustn't get downhearted. Never say die, you know, while there's a ahot in the locker!'' Tom shook his head despairingly, as if oonsoious that the locker had been completely emptied the night before. I cheered him bj> as beat I could, and left him. ! "Fanny," said I,when Igot home, "we must manage this business for Tom The poor fellow is getting worse and worse. An idea struck me on the way home. This is leap year, you I know Now, don't you think you could persuade Julia te pop the question? Fanny was excessively shocked at the idea at first, but when I exhibited it in ita moat favorable lights, aha admitted the piapriety of the plan, and we oonsulted how it oould be best oarried out. It was finally arranged that I Fanny should go and tell Julia all about It, snow ner lorn't letters on the subject. and tell aboat his consultation with me; that as Tom ! ?u to be there that nicht, Julia should watch her opportunity, and To an off-hand mam.or itk him to let her see that oottage on the wateh faoe again; thai when Tom expressed, himself unable to "aatisfyprod action," Julia nhould mj, "Never mind, Tom,we can gtet one just like it for ourselves, can't we? This is leap year, you know; eo I propose we stould,"' or something to that effect. And I felt sore, from the mischievous expression of Julia's eye*, that she was just the one to do it, though it were for nothing but the fun of the thing Aooordingly. Fanny set out for Royal Circus, ana I expected to hear nothing more about it till her return; but just as I was sitting dowo to ( ?, a cab pulled up at the door, the bell rang furiously, and in the twinkling of an eye. Tom burst into the room in a perfect transport of delight, with his head more like a mop than the day I told him it was, and a hat fur too small for him?Col Purdie's, it must have been ?stuck on the very back of his head. "Shake my hand, old fellow," cried Tom, stnmhling over the cat, and nearly overturning the tea things; shake away, it's all right? it's all settled "Whafa right?" "julia, of eourse. What year is this '?'the year?be quick man! Confound it' don't you know what year it is?'* and Toui in his impatience accompanied each word with a poke of I his knuckles "Why, it is 18A0." "Leap year,'' cried Tom, giving uie a frightful dig in the ribs and sent me staggering against tke wall. Leap year, vou old fool, and .Tulia popped the question. Ila' ha!" "Yo doi't mean it?" "It's a fact,I assure you. She asked for a look at the cottage?on your watch you know?and I thought. 0! what a splendid chance if I had it But 3f course I hadn't. Never mind, said Julia getting very red in the face, and stooping dowi to pick up something, this is leapyear, yoa know; so I propose that we get one She did Dick, upon my word I>id yon ever hear anything so extraordinary? The very thing. y*u know, that I was to have said ' Well. I felt MmAtKinv ? ? ft *i?uv iuiu luy throat, and not a word could I utter, but I ran over and ? Tom could say no more for chuckling, but ho made a violent demonstration of clasping sotne one in bis arms, which waa sufficiently expressive; an! then, in the exhuberanee of his joy began t? beat a devil's tattoo on Cj!. Purdie'a hat anc to execute a dance, a shade or two wilder than the Highland fling, round and round the tablo. To which exhilarating exercise I shall leave him, to advise all young ladies who have beaux like Tom Pidger to glean from my story, and not forget the date. A MRS.
