"Vayle Ventnor, Private," might be seen balf-sittirur. half-reclining udod Mrs. Detovan'i own particular lounge in her own particulai firirate parlor. On on? of these mornings Carotta was enlightened. It began in this way, She picked up an old paper, and her eye fell upon tb? two names again in a roll-call? "Vayle Ventnor," and "Jeramiah Jones, Captain " She laughed out with gleeful memory?then told him the whole story; but the telling is toe na>r* to lose To his question, '-What is it so fuany, Miss DeleTan?'- she replied. " Why, you must know that when you first arrived, the day after you pioked op my fan, you remember, I thought you were Capt. Jeremiah Jones." " You thought?bow should you think that?" " Well, you see, when you restored my fap that night, I remarked to Raymond Mays a* you want back to yoar seat that yon were military. The next morning as I was Iookirg orer the list of arrivals, I came upon the twn names?' Captain Jones and Vayle Ventnor;' and I supposed, of eourse, that you were the officer, as I had no knowledge of military dreaa-distinetion, and there was but one military prefix, and I remembered your costume as belonging to pome regiment. Do you see7" "Yes, lsee," he answered, trying not to anile at her straight simplicity. (i f>-* L.- a. J 5- <^ ? ?- ? - uui w uu iu iue wuna ia captain JODCS? Captain Jeremiah Jones7'" she asked, sad dealy. " I haven't thought of the real Captain actually since I discovered my mistakehow funny!"' He returned the next day after his arrival ?you probably didn't see him. He is the captain of my company?a good feliow, and an ^ excellent officer But let me ask aaother question, " How did yoa know his name to be Jeraf miah?" 14 Why, I saw it in a paper?like this," and ha handed the one she held to him?then followed other little reminiaeeneM?th? meatinv on the stairs, etc., till at last Carlotta asked a plump question, coloring prettily all the time : 441 want to know how you came to be serving as a 4 Private'?will you tell me ?" 14 Why mt so especially?" 44 Because Ward says you are rich and aristocratio?Richmond Ventnor's son." He laughed. 44 Yea, it is very true. I am rich and aristocratic, as the saying goes, and Richmond Ventnor's son; but what bu that tc do with it ?" he continued, determined to draw her out. She made her eyea very round at this ; and then repeated the usual objections?the usual reasons why rich and influential men shouldn't serve u ? privatesKaymond May's objeci tions and reasons. He heard her through, r then his whole face changed, aa he turned il toward her, and hi* tight laughing words of a . moment ainee changed to perfect Seriousneai u he anawered: ' Miss Delevan, when the I news reached me of my country's peril, I wat in Paris, at my father's house. A steamer aailed on the next day for America. I made my preparations, and sailed in it. My life had been a student's life; I knew nothing whatever of military drill: but I was able ana strong, from being a good gymnast?so I sel myself to learn my new trade by enlisting as s private at once." But havn't you been serving three months? surely you must have some experience now?" she interposed. "It haa'nt made a good soldier of me yet. At all events, I have much to learn before 1 shall myself be fitted to take oommand In anj I,,mwmr In (Ka mMwHrn* *_KA -.11 .. ? ? -1 ?? uv.llll J V>?lll for ft larger ftrmj, nd because I am unfitted for as offieer, shall I wait ?t each time for i commission1" "Bat 70a would not have to wait, with 70m connections in the military and political world," she s?id; not hall seeing jet his mod esty?his manliness. * Ne, I would not have to wait, it is verj true," he axalaimed, with some saroasm. ^ " Mias Delevan," sitting upright now, and lighting with scorn, UI am sick and ashamed of the shallow advantages of poaition?of th< miserable presuming expectations that gro* out of It. It ia oontinuallj putting men in th? wrong plaoe, and building up gigautie errors? such error* as we are to-day striving to amend It humiliates me to think that to my position in the world do I owe perhaps my advancement. instead of to ay own strength and powers as a man. I long sometimes to throw ofl these 'circumstances,' and for a time- to meet the world faee to faea, and on its own terms. But pardon me for boring you with my theories,' and he sank back upon the 1 ounce acain ItOMM So Oariotta ?u enlightened. Ai ahe aat there in tbe ailenoe aha pondered what the had heeru ThU did not aound like Raymond MtTi; yet Raymond Man wu a brave fellow mdi manly ona. 8ha had never heard any oo* talk lika ihia before, but it atruek an anewering ohord in bar own nature. Of oouraa aha liked him better for it. Ha thought the didn't underatand?that he had bored her with bia earneatneea on what he auppoaed would be a rifse theory to her; for he looked upon her u only a aveeter specimen of the young lady genua, that bloomed In faahionable aoeiety. By-and-by, aha mid, in a dreamy, abeent mancar. aa abe aat, with her obeek leaning on her hand: " I wiah tou would talk in thU way to Raymond Maya. ' " Why to Raymond Mays?" he queetioned ia aurpriae "Oh," still dreamily, thoughtfully, "he ia waiting for a commission. He aaya he don't lika th? aaaoeiationa of a prirato'a lifa? that it ia too hard labor, and too gonoraliiing; and that If ho U goiag to risk hit iifo, ho moans to do it ia a maoaor that ia moat af rooahlo to him," eta. " Poraonal ambition ! that is it; it atanda in ho wj of tho wholo thing. Etory man for htmaolf, inatoad of a grand unit in thoosaada of mon.

"I hart nothing to pardon in that. Bat why ? do yon aak it?" "I waKwpviaad " , "{Surprised* Now I am curious. What is there surprising in that?" "Miss Delevan I wish you would let me aak you a plump question?" "I will." ' Are you not engaged to Mr Maya7" "Enraged to Raymond Mays? No. What pat saen a thought in your head'" "loan hardly tell; bat somehow I received the impression." tl And that ia why you were surprised that I told him I was anxious for all men to go7 Mr. Ventnor, I have never talked very earnestly upon any earnest topic with you, not because I have doubted your earnestness, but beet use I have met so few persons who feel just as I do upon many things that I am shy of speaking.

WUQli X OBkJ IU3V1 WOIO engaged to Mr. Mays, I oould not wish him to stay behind at thie issue, area awaiting a oo^miasion," ah* eoaeloded, smiling. He looked at her with a new expression. This was fine, and ha told her so. " I don't know," she went on, thoughtfully. " Sometimes I think it is because I haven't been tried in that particular manner Women whose husbands and lovers hava gone, and to whom I have expressed this, say I am unwomanly, or that It is because I have never loved." " It is because you are unselfish," he exclaimed, with energy. '* That is the mistake half the women make. They rarely discern between selfishness and unselfishness, where the heart is concerned. And you. Miss Delevan, are the first woman I ever met who could." The honest admiration with whidh he reftrded her at this point ?u unmistakable, t pleated her t f course, and she expressed it bj saying, simply, " I am glad joa think so." tie gave a quick look into her face. Such a mixture of frankness and reserve, he oouldn't make her out. Musing, he presently said: "Garlotta!" Then, rMOllecting, "Pardon me, Miss Delevan" She waved her hand at him deprecatingly, and interrupted with, "No, no; call me Carlottn. I like people?I?to call me Carletta." What was she about to say? "I like peo> pie?I?to call me Carlotta." lie wished he i knew. ' but say on," she resumed, " what were you gvine to say 10 various "Ob, just a fact which may sound like mere compliment, bat which I assure you is Dot, that before to-day I thought you something iweeter than most yourg ladies; but now you stand to me as a type of what woman ahould i be." . " Oh, that is a great deal to say; but I think you mean it as you assert." "Yea, I mean it, Carlotta; and more?go on as you hare to me; talk out auch sentiments. Be brave and honest and true to whatever convictions you may have, however unpopular they may be. Will you?" He waa very earnest?not gallant as Raymond Mays woold have been?but in hearty # i * vaiucei ivr iuo iraia a Base "I will try," she answered. Then ihe thought, "He called me Carlotta?how sweetly he says it! He is eertainly very fine, and handsomer than t ay moid Mays!" Alas for Raymond Mays! Two or three more days went by, and the band played, and the carriages rolled, and the people took life gaily in soand of the great surging sea at this thoroughfare of fashion. In this time, " Yayle Yentnor, Private,'' became better acquainted with la Carlotta. From the text of that morning they had gone on into the deeper waters of existenoe?had talked finer and freer, and fhna f1iaAAvA?&/l mnAk mwo \*?wwvvawa uiuvu uiv/t O VI OOVU UIUC1 In the mean time Raymond Mays, handsome fellow?mnch handsomer, be it known, than i Vayle 1 entnor?meantime he chafed and fret- I ed inwardly at thii ripen ng acquaintance, and outwardly conducted himself in a most disdainful manner toward the former gentleman. " The girl's head is turned with his wealth( and position," he blustered one night to Ward' Wyman. i " No, no, Mays; b? generous; I don't think that of Carlotta; besides, you don't know Vent nor?you won't know him, that's it. There r never was a finer fellow in the world." Mays sneered and turned away. It happened that very night that he was I present at a club-room, and heard a conversation between Ventnor and another, wherein Ventnor mt* hi* rMnnm anil nnininna !>? ?? much m he had done before Carlotta Defevan. t Still Mays aneered and scoffed. t The conversation wandering off, a lieutenant I of the regular armj suddenly said : i " Here is Mays now who is waiting, and with i better reason than most? Mays was in the Cri' mea. you know." ? " No, I don't know." i - 44 Yes, he was in Europe at the time, and ; joined the allied foroes out of sheer bloodthirstinesa, I believe. Isn't so, Mays? Here, oome t out of your corner, and tell us all about it." i Msys "came out," saying there was nothing to tell, modestly and a little crossly. But Ventnor was so interested, so genial and frank, there was no resisting; so Mays told them " all about it,-' that be knew. " uerge says you were tne best drilled soldier of all the volunteers, Mays," the lieutenant r went on, lt and that you had at one time the ) temporary command of a company." I " Why, I should think it was easy enough k then for you to get a commission,"one said. Mays shrugged his shoulders, and retorted, r " Bah! I haven't influential friends in the I right department, you know." Vayle Ventnor biased forth in the same indignant protest that he had brought forward upon another occasion, and when he had ended there was a determined look around hts firm1 set mouth that told of a purpose. When BayI mond Mays left the club-room that night it > was actually with a friendly nod to Ventnor's r cordial "Good ni*ht A few days more and the furlough would have expired.

There was no excuse now for delay, though the bftnd played "Die Sohonbrunner*' in suoh melting, memorising strains, ftnd the 44 Star-Spangled Banner" rolled through the halls.
