THK BELLE'S I need to think sometimes that Kate was made of sunshine. She had the moat unclouded brow I ever saw, and her eyes shone with a light that proved they had alwajs been accustomed to look on the bright side of things. Her father was a man of great wealth, stern in his bearing, and proud of his position in the world. Her mother was a small, timid, fairy-like creature; and I do not believe these two people, ao totally unlike each other, could have ever lived happily together had not Kate been sent as an equalizer between the two extremes. Their love for her was the only sentiment they had ever felt in common. The home of the Howards was a grand old place, long since past that newness so suggestiveof carpenter, of ohipa. of mortar, of lumber, plaster and paint. One could lie down under one of the grand old trees in front of the bouae and fancy a thousand romances connected with the stately manor, rearing its white walla near. At the back of the house lay the garden; and as the pruning paaaion was } never admitted there, it wm a man ot clambering vinea, trailing roses, ivy-cloaked oaks and beds of myrtle, instead of the pri^ tree* trimmed till they looked like hopeless old tnaids with huge green sun-bonnets on their heads: ruses snatched from nativ* ?mr?i made to grow over wooden hoops, or nondescript devices made of string and shingle; with myrtltf clipped to resemble a milk-pan fall of greens, and ivies torn down and cast oat as intruders?which is the style of the modern garden This was Kate's favorite haunt, and in the shade of the old cherry trees, under the branches of which were placed a rustic seat, did she spend the few hours she devoted to meditation or day dreaming. An only child, with great personal attractions. and the heiress of a large fortune, suitors were, of course, plenty. But Kate seemed proof against all of Cupid's shafts, however It ? - * '?? - weu directed mere certainly was about the young lady the most chilling air of indifference. when she did not care to make a friend even of a lover, that ever woman wrapped herself in. An iceberg were twenty times a# approachable; and whoever the unlucky wight who dared to venture near after she had assumed this manner, was sure to go away feeling as if the mercury had suddenly fallen from fever heat to zero. Hospitable in the extreme. Col. Howard frequently invited guests to sp<?nd several weeks at a time at his house ; and himself enjoyed leading the fishing and bunting parties gotten up at such times, and delighted to display his own unbroken progress in the manly sports and games the young men diverted themselves with in the long summer twilights. One evening as he sat upon his front piazza, chatting with a young Dr. Bell and Mr. Ross, both guests at his house, the evening stage drew up at the foot of the la"Wn, and a young i man alighted Kate, who was standing in the front door, watohed him as he came up the Walk, and as k* mnnntwl ?K? >' >??? turned the distant bow he made her with one quite as formal, and with a slight gesture said my father is yonder, sir."' The colonel rose as the new-comer approached, and glancing over the letter of introduction the latter handed him, said with a cordial smile as he finished its perusal, ' I am glad to welcome yon here. Gentlemen, this is the son of an old friend of mine?Dr. Bell, Mr. Ross, this is George Bruee ; and here. Mr. Bruce, is my daughter," he added, as Kate demurely advanced, bringing a chair to the new guest. Mr Bruce was a tall, slender, pale young man. not at all handaome, but exceedingly graceful. lie seemed like one not much accustomed to mixinr with the world fr.r !??? introduction had embarrassed him and he had blushed twice. Blushes are not used in the grand toilrttf du monde. They are oosmetica prepared by nature, and the world replace* them with the works of chemists it deems superior. Mr. Brace's blush was the ?ign in the heavens which led Dr. Bell and Mr. Ross to suppose that be was a very verdant specimen of humanity, against whom they could display their own superior attractions and accomplishments. Whatever Kate thought, did not show in her face, but she listened without seeming to, to all Mr. Brace's conventions with her father, and more than once, as her eyes wandered toward the young man's face.they caught an exchanged glance passing between Dr Bell and Mr. K oss, plainly indicating that their I opinion of the stranger was no exalted one. Yet Mr. Bruce could talk well; it was only that culture of brain which excludes ornate culture of bodj, that gave him the air of a man of little taste. Self-taught, he had been an earnest student. and the bookworm is not of that species which spends its life weaving silken cocoons in which to encase its form. He was poor; but the future to him looked doubly bright, viewed from the shadows of the past, and to rise high in his profession as a lawyer was a determination which only the most untoward ?veDU or the sudden close of life could thwart. As his business with Mr. Howard was ended, he rose to go; but his host would not listen to such a thing, assuring him he would be both grieved and mortified to see the son of an old friend stopping at a hetel when his house was at his service. Mr. Bruce hesitated a moment, glanced into Kate's face, thanked Mr. Howard, and remained. Some time paused, during which Mr. Rom and Dr Bell allowed no opportunity to slip in which thej could possibly make Mr. Bruce appear in a ridiculous light in the presence of Kate. At the same time they were anzioua not to appear as the real agents of his discomfiture. Any sport in whioh they thought him not proficient they were sure to propose; and any pauinc subject of conversation?such as questions of dress, manner of fashion?that they imagined it would embarrass the young student to be called upon to join in, and which they, as young men of the world, could talk upon fluently, was often advanced. Kate was blind to none ef these things, and Dr. Bell >nd Mr. Hose, neither of them ever great favorites with the young lady they were addressing, grew leu and leu such every day. Hn* T\? BaII J * vu? tiwtuwii A/1 WII piujr/ocu guiog aowu on the data target-shooting. He wti a capital phot himself. and promised himself much sport at witnessing Mr. Brace's efforts to hit the mark. The flats consisted of several low, marshy field*.which, for the purpose of draining had been ditched at regular distanoea? each ditch being aboat two feet deep and one wide; these were generally half full of muddy water, and a person unacquainted with the ground ran great riak of tripping into one of them Whether this had anything to do with Dr. Bell's selection of the flats he only knew. Mr Bruce, when aeked to join them, con ented readily, and made his appearance a few minutes after with a fine double-barreled rifle upon his ahoulder, and other shooting accoutrements worn with the air of one accustomed to them. Kate looked at him as she went out to mount her horae. and wondered how she had ever thought him homely. A* the servant led up her horse, Dr. Bell flew into the house to get a chair for her to mount from, and Mr. Hoes took the bridle from the oetler to hold the animal for the rounc ladv. Mr Bme? bent a little and extended hia hand, in which Kate placed her dainty foot, and sprang thence into the aaddle; thanking Dr. Bell with a bit of malice in her amile, aa he aat down the uaeleM chair Her father joined her, and they rode alowly along to the groundc to witneaa (he apcrt. Arrived at the apot, the target waa placed, and Mr Rosa gave the Irat fire. He raiaed hia rifle with the air of a man aure of hh mark ?took alow and delitarate aim?fired, and mimed the target?hia ball plunging into the *>d a rood to the right of it. DrBell next tried hia akill, une.i with eare, and the ball truck au inch above the mark That', good for each a diatance," said Mr. M lhe Doctor ran acroea the flat and / * pointed oat his shot?"two hundred and fifty yard* it long rifle distance." " S'ow, Mr. Brace," oried the Doctor, "it is your turn " Mr. Brace stepped forward, raised his rifle withcat taking any apparent aim, and sent the ballet straight into tne target's oentre. 41 Bravo, cried Mr. Howard. " Really that is the best shot I ever witnessed " Dr. Bell looked oonfounded; then, as mach to conceal his astonishment as to prove by closer inspection his rival's success, he started on a brisk walk for the target. A little excited. and still more vexed at having himself outdone in the presence of the woman tie loved by the man he had intended to embarrass. Dr. Bell forgot to pick his way, and suddenly found himself in the bottom of a ditch, the thick and slimy water of which penetrating his thin clothes and causing them to adhere to him, rendered him, as he regained dry land, an object of mirth as well as pity Overwhelmed with confusion, he neither heard the expreftions of sympathy lavished upon him, nor saw the polite effort to restrain the smiles his appearance excited. Catching his hat from the grass, he beat a precipitate retreat; cursing inwardly the nature of the ground which offered no friendly mound or kindly hollow to conceal his ridiculous plight. The accident put an end to the target-shooting, and the party strolled homeward. Dr. Bell, in fresh attire, was the first to meet them, and with assumed good humor, led the laugh at hit* first experience in ditching. Underneath his li^ht railery lay the bitterest resent ujcui uiwkra me innocent cause of bis mishap, and h*> determined, bj a series of petty annoyances, to have revenge. Mr. Ross, meanwhile, determined to have his fate decided at once. He felt sanguine; for he was rich, dressed always in the height of fashion, and could lisp soft nonsense in a lady's ear by the hour. These were enough, he imagined, to win any woman's heart. The evening was warm and rainy. The showers oame down in that soft, hushing way, which, in dreamy summer evenings seem like a lullaby sung by the clouds to hush the earth to repose. The shrubbery was dripping, the lawn was soaked, and Kate sat by the sittingroom window looking out into the darkness aud listening to the rain She was roused from her reverie oy the entrance of Mr Ross, who, after a few preliminary remarks, informed Miss Howard he was about going away. If he expected to see the young lady give the most approved start, and anxiously demand when and why, he was sorely disappointed; for with the most indifferent expression of countenance, she turned her face from the window and asked quietly, 44 In this rain ?" For a moment Mr. Ross was confused, but oniy ior a moment. With the readiness of shallow minds, his at once regained its composure. and he formally proposed for her hand. "You honor me too much, Mr. Ross," was the cool reply. " I have looked upon you as my father's guest?as my lover, never!" u I am astonished to hear you say so," cried the excited young gentleman. "What, then, am I to understand by all those acts of kindness with which you have encouraged my suit, Miss!" " Simply that you are one of those young men, air, who contrive to turn the slightest act of courtesy or hospitality, on the part of a woman, into a decided acknowledgment of love. I never g&ve you the moat distant encouragement ; for, let me assure you, you are one of those friends a young lady could not feel pleased ever to remember as a rejected lover." * U. D J J * - - > mi itvw cuuaiuercu iur a inomeni on mis rather equivocal remark, then exclaimed: " Vour manner baa changed. Miss Howard, since the arrival of this young jackanapes of a lawyer. I see how it if. For my part. I shall remain no longer to be played off against suoh a foot. I feel hurt?insulted. I would like to warn my friend. Dr. Bell, of his danger ; but let him look out for himself. I bid you adieu, Miss. Maybe you will regret this hour yet? maybe." Mr. Ross seemed at a loss how to expross himself further. In spite of Kate's request for him to remain until the rain was OTer, he seised his hat, declaring he would never exist five minutes under the roof with a woman who bad jilted him; and bowing himself out backwards, with an ironical air of politeness, he suddenly found himself on the edge of the piazza?too late to heed Kate's hurried warning, too late to recover himself, and over he went, backwards, falling a distance of seven feet, plump I.... ?11 a I? J- ?--? u-' ?uv iuvsu b-HI Wl kuo U'jnoi UOU9 UOIUW. Kate rushed to the steps aniiously demanding if he was hart. A strange vision of a man of mad rose one instant to her view, answering never a word, and the next moment was lost to sight. A dilapidated beaver, and the impress of a man'* figure in the soft soil, showed in the morning, where he had been; but he was seen no more, and to Mr. Howard alone was his suddm disappearance satisfactorily explained through Kate. The next afternoon Kate's horse was brought around for her usual ride, and turning to Mr. Bruce, she remarked, that if he would like to accompany her. her father's horse was at his servic*. Mr. Bruce stammered, hesitated? then catching a malicious glance from Dr. Bell's eye, expressed bis pleasure, and at once went out with her, and mounting, they rode slowly away. [TO BB CONTINUED.J That the Queen hit the bull's eye In the opening of the great rifle shooting contest by the volunteers In England has been mentioned How she did It is explained, to quote from the authoriied report:?"Her Majesty then proceeded to the tents facing the butta One of Mr. Whitworth'a rifles waa fixed in a sliding rest at four hundred yard's range. The Queen pulled the trigger by mnDi of i silk cord Landed to her by Mr. Wbltworth. The ahot truck the centra of the bull's eye, amidst great cheering. Her Majesty expressed much gratification with the result " But It seems she did not $igkt the rifle, nor touch It. nor do anything but pull a string, which pulled the trigger. The rifle had been tried a few score times, from the allding rest until there was a dead certainty that the ball mu$t strike the bull's eye, and, In fact, the shot, like that in Der Frelscb-itz, could not fall. Yet there ia a chance that Queen Victoria may hereafter be chronicled as having an aim as certain as that of William Tell, seeing that at a distance of 400 yards she 11 red a rifle and hit the center of th? mark !
