A 6XOBY OF TO-DAY. Eleanor Collins was the youngest child and only daughter of Judge Collins of Collins ville, Mass. The Collins family belonged to the genuine New England aristocracy; that is, they boasted that they could trace their pedigree in a direct line from one of the pas sengers who crossed the Atlantic in the May flower, on her first trip to America. It might have been a task attended with some difficul ty for the present generation ot Collinses to produce documentary evidence to support this assertion, but they could at least lay just v,iaim a guuui) a.ray ui granuiamers, great-graudfathers, and great-great-grand fathers. Not only did ttaef ded pages of the family record, in several old Bibles, prove this genealogical point, but sundry ancient family heir-looms, to wit., a dozen or two of bat tered old tea-spoous, a bruised and long sutiering tea-pot, an ugly-shaped little sugar bowl, and a queer old tankard, all of silver, though rather thin and quite decrepit from age, still existed as tangible proofs that the Collinses of the past had been respectable, that is, well-to-do folks in their time. But the Collins family did not need to look back altogether to prove their claims to con sideration. If they could biast of having among their forefathers and near relatives doctors of divinity, professors in Yale college, attorney-generals, one senator, and one gov ernor, the old judge was eve:y whit as good a man, in his own and his townsmen s esteem, as the best of the race, and of his three sous, the eldest was a lawyer and a rising politi cian, who bade fair to be a senator himself in time; the second was a doctor in good prac tice. and the third had receutly graduated at We-t Point, and was stationed on the western frontier. It was a tradition that the gtrls of the fam ily had always done their part by judicious marriages to build up the for unes of the Col linses, and there was no reason why Eleanor, the judge's youngest child, should not raairy as well as the daughters of her house were wont to do. She was a slender New England girl, whose forehead was too high, whose nose was too large, and whose mouth was too wide f .r the striet canons of beauty; but she bad a trail-parent and blooming complex ion, large, soft, gray eyes, such a wealth of bright, auburn hair; and, above all, so cious and changing an expression, which il lumined and transformed her face when she spoke, that if her claim to real beamy might be justly disputed, that she was most ait act ive a d charming was indisputable. She was intelligent and tolerably well educated; she eoud read a little Virgil; she had been through algebra, though she never exactly knew how she did it, she bad parsed Milton’s Paradise Lost: she had studied chemistry and natural philosophy, and “knew enough ab jut them for all practical purposes,” her father was wont to say, and did not dispute the statement, since she could not, by the widest stretch of imagination, conceive of an emer gency in her every day lire, where she should be forced to apply these sciences to actual use. She played the piano tolerably well, and sang the old songs her father loved, to please him, and a few of the new to please herself, in a sweet though unstrained voice. She was skilled in all matters pertaining to household. She could bake cake, sweep, dust, iron, and, as to sewing, with her that was a fine ail. Needle work was her delight, and her deft fingers went equally at home in the shaping of the commonest ot garments, or the daintiest arrangements of fine laces and ribbons. She was a cheery, sunuy-temper d girl, the idol of the household, and a favorite with all who knew her. Everybody predicted a great inalcli for iter, and, in fact, wooers were not lacking. Before she was 18 she had refiispri t WO Of lipr hmf.hpr’s naflotolaaemafnti • by the time she was 20, the list of her rejected suitors was increased by a clergyman, a doc tor, and two merchants. In true New Eng land lasbion, her father and mother had looked on quietly at this piocession of as pirants for the post of their son-in-law, neither interfering with the wooing as it went on, nor with the summary rejection of each suitor in his turn. There was time enough for Eleanor to settle by and by, was their nnspoken thought, and surely they were iu no haste to lose her bright presence from her childhood’s home. At 23 Eleanor was still unmarried, but that year brought a great cha: ge into her life. Her father and mother died within three mouths of each other, and at the same time she lo*t parents and home. Tue judge had lived generously, though not extravagantly. His income had never been large, and the education and establish ment of his sons had absorbed the greater part of his small economies. When the es tate was settled ami divided between the children, Eleanor’s portion was a mere pit tance. The change was bitter to her. Her brothers, who were both married, offered her a home in their lamilies, but, although she liked her sister-in-law very well, she who had been used to the independence ot an only daughter in her father’s bouse, could not, without an internal struggle, t ke the new place of a supernumerary in her sister's household. Toask herfatherforthe money she had need ed for her expenses had seemed easy and nat ural, but to ask it of her brothers was simply intolerable. They were both struggling to a chieve independence, but as yet neither of them was rich, and each bad quite as much as be could well do to support his own family, without an additional butden. Not one word was spoken. She was treated with the great est kindness by both lier brothers and their wives, and she did her part toward lesseuiug the burden of her pecuniary support by her diligent and skillful needle. She sewed for the children, she made dresses lor her sisters, which fitted exquisitely; she made hats as dainty and tasteful as ever entered the fancy, or left, the hands of a French milliner; she tended babies, whom she idolized; she took her part in the lig c household duties, in which the ladies of every New England fam ily do not scorn to busy themselves, and yet she felt, rather than knew, that her stay in her brothers’ homes was considered by tbeui as merely a temporary one. They naturally expected her to marry and have a home of her own. At intervals, eligible suitors liai pre sented themselves, but bad been refused. Each in turn she had tried to like—she was really anxious to love some one of them. She read and understood the pleased smile of hope that brightened her sister-in-law’s faces at e ch tresh appearance of a suitor, and their blank and disappointed air at the disappear of the rejected lover. It stung her pride that they should be so ready to get rid ot her, and more than once she had resolved toacc ptone ot her wooer*, but at the very moment of his declaration 01 love to her, she had found ber selt positively unable to do so.

The senator elect did propose to Eleanor, who quietlv re jected bun as she had so many others. Both .John aud his wife were wroth at this. What do you expect in a man?” cried Mrs. Collins. “I expect him to make me love him, that's all.” “And why can’t you love Judge Carter?” “1 am &ur I can't tell why.” “Then I can,” retorted her sister-in-law. “It all comes hom your reading poetry and novel . You are e? pccting to love as people do in books. Let me tell you nobody i oes that in real life. In the first place, the men, who are so noble and heroic in books, are not to be found outside ot them; aud, in the sec ond if they were, I'm not so sure that the women could be iound to love them as the ideal ones do. But whether they could or would love in this tremendous way isn’t the question. They don't and that’s all there is to be said about it. The only romaniic love match I ever knew was a runaway one, and it turned out miserably; before a yeai they bated each other as heartily as they had loved each oteer at tirst. You are a sensible girl, Look aiouud you, among our acquaintances, and tell ne wbeie do you see two people whe are in love as they are in books. As far as ] myself am concerned, I loved John wel enough when I married him, but I had nom ot those wild ecstasies, or any idea that 1 couidn’t live without him, and all that sort ol nonsense. But we get along well together we are fond of each other, and then we have our children.” Her voice soitened as she spoke. “Eleanor,” she continued, “there i! no truth in the talk in books about the way W'onieu love men; but there never has been tin re never can be put into words, the emo tion that a mother feels for her baby. Sc long as Cod gives woman mother-love, Elea nor, they needn’t ask anything more. I tel you. t y dear, marriage is very disappointinj to m st women.

I only speak of the real one, aud uine teuths of the women do love their children best, aud they would tell you so, if they should tell the truth about it. I never spoke so candidly to any one before, but you have a xomautic, impracticable notion of love and marriage. I tell you the truth, because I am foud of you, aud can’t bear to see you throw away such a chance lor happiness as so good a man as Judge Carter offers you, aud all for a mistaken idea.” Eleanor was silent. “Do you ever mean to marry ? What do you mean to do?” persisted Mrs. John. “What I d like to do, I’ll tell you. Molly, though I know you'll stare. I’d like to earu my own living.'’ “Aud how could you do it?” “I sometimes think I could by lecturing. You know they tell ths stery of Hairiet Hos mer, that the first time she ever saw a sculp tor modeling she said she lelt in her fingers that she too could do it. So, when I sit in church, and hear dear Parson Moody prose and prose, I feel in my tongue that I could do it—only better.” “Good heavens!” was Mrs. John’s startled ejaculation. “Don’t be alarmed, Molly I have no idea of attempting this, but, seriously, I do think I might earn a good living by dress-making aud millinery. I do a grod deal of the last gratis, you know, and my hats are the prettiest in church. I look round, Sundays wicked as it is, and I see how stylish mine are. I fairly long to get hold of the ugly o :es and remodel them. Why shouldn’t I open a shop, and make and trim hats and bonnets for money?” “Eleanor Collins, you are joking! The idea of Judge Collins’s daughter and John’s sister, turning milliner I You could really never do such a thing!” “No. I s ippose I shouldn’t have moral courage enough to do it,” said Eleanor, wari ly. “There is only one thing for me to do, and that is—to marry. Perhaps I ought to. You and John are very kind, but of course, I can’t be a burden upon you forever,” here her voice trembled, in spite of all efforts to steady it. “That is really unkind, Eleanor,” said Molly. “When did John or I ever give you the least hint of your being a burden to us ? No, indi ed, you’re a help. I shouldu’t know how to do without you, and you are like a second mother to the children. It is only fcr your own sake I urge you to marry Judge Carter” “But I have refuse! him. I can’t go now and request him to marry me, and he won't ask me again.” “But, if he did?” “But he won t.” Mrs. Collins said no more, yet, a few weeks la’er. Judge Carter did renew his proposal for Eleanor’s baud, urged thereto by his own real affection for her, and emboldened to make this second essay by a few hints from Mrs. Collins. In the meantime Eleanor’s sensitiveness as to her dependent position, i and her si ter-in-law’s constant iteration that ! llift frnp hasiis t’nr hnnnir»ftQ<5 in matrinoro w;. respect and friendship, had their influence on the girl. She was too honorable a woman, however, to pretend an emotion which she did not feel. “I do not love you as I have always thought a woman should love her husband,” she said to her suitor; “but I do respect you and like you. Your society is pleas ant to me, and if you are content with such affection as I can give you, that which a sister gives to a brother, I will marry you.” “Do you love any one else? or have you ever felt the sort ot love you allude to for any other man?” “Never,” replied Eleanor. “Then I am satified. I will teach you to love me, dear Eleanor,” said her wooer. Great were the rejoicings in the Collins family when it was announced that Eleanor was to marry Judge Carter. To her sister’s congratulations she only replied, “I hope I have done right.” “Eight—of course you have,” returned Moliy; but, alas, Eleanor was not sure of this. As the days passed on, her feelings under went a curious change. Before her engage ment, she enjoyed Judge Carter’s society; now she dreaded his coming, and she shrank from the thought of her approaching mar riage almost with horror. She put aside all her lover’s plans for a speeuy wedding by one objection alter another. But the Judge, aid - ed by Mrs. Collins, overruled them all. Eleanor grew pale; she lost her appetite; she could noi sleep. She hinted to her sister her de.-ire to break the engagement, but she was met with such scornful rebukes for hav ing allowed the betrothal to be made public, and such infectives against a selfishuess that would subject Judge Carter to the mortifica tion of having been jilted by her, that she dared say no more, and Mrs. Collins pressed forward all the preparations for the marriage more rapidly than ever. The wedding day was fixed, and as the lime sped by, the girl grew halt frantic. At last she could bear it no longer. “judge Carter,” she said on one of his vis its to her, “X think I have done a great wrong. I ought never to have promised to man-y you, but I will not do you the greater wrong of keeping that promise: for I do not love you, and alas, X love you less and less, instead of more and more. My very friend ship for you seems changing into aversion, You are too good a man to be treated in so dishonorable a way as to have a woman mar ry you who does not love you. I, a' least, will not be that base woman. Can you for give me for the mortification of this rapture at the eleventh hour? Do not despise me for my conduct toward you. Indeed, I have meant to do right.” “I believe you, Eleanor, and so far from despising you, I honor you for your frank ness, if ind;ed it is impossible for you to love me.” “It is,” she murmured. “Then there is no more to be said. We withdraw our engagement by mutual consent and we will be once more, as ve used te be, the best of friends.” “You are a noble mau ! why cannot I love you! ’cried Eleanor. “You deserve a wom an’s whole heart, and you will b&ve it yet, I am sure,” And so Collinsville lost the excite ment of theseuator-elect’s great weddmg, but gained in its stead the excitement of the bro ken engagement and of speculations as to its cause. Great was the surprise of all at the warn) friendship which continued between the severed lovers; and when, a year or two after, Judge Carter did marry, and Eleanor was act ually a bridesmaid at the wedding, where she had been expected to take the role ot bride, Collinsville was fairly struck dumb at the spec tacle. “Eleanor is so queer!” was Mrs. John Col lins s oft repeated comment, but even she now gave up all hopes of matrimony for her sister-in-law, “You must be patient with me, Molly,” said Eleanor; “I’ll do what I can not to be a bur den upon you.

Eleanor Collins lived her busy, commonplace life in her broth of thp°bitera ' 6 lU" °* petty carea’ and ful1 in “ CSS ot dePendeuce. She was by ♦MmS<nleiUU?e’ tbe housekeeper, the facto tum, the drudge of the family. She did more than a servant’s work; she never had a ser vant s wages. Had she been a servant in deed, Mrs. John would have regarded her as most invuluable, and would have spared nei ther effort nor money to retain her services. But, since she was “only Eleanor,” her sis ter-in-law really though! herself very generous in giving her a home, aud providing for her support. The veiy clothing, which she so la boriously earned, was given to her as if a fa vor was conferred upon her. Money of her own, she had literally none. The cook in the kitchen was infinitely her superior, so far as her position in the family was concerned She had, at least, her regular work, fixed wa ges, and some time she could call her own Eleanor had neither. Unconsciously the old maid came »o be the bond slave of all the fami'v, and had not love for the children, whom she had brought up. sweetened the ser vice, hers would have been a ,ot almost too hard for endurance. Her nieces and nephews loved her while, they tyrannized over her, and to none of the family did it occur that the debt ° obligation was on their side, not that of the old maid aunt. Sometimes, half-jes’ingly, the girls would say, Auntie, aren’t you sorry you didn’t marry the senator?” “Xo dear children,” she would reply. “So ciety did me the injustice of not allowing me to earn my own living in any way in which I could have done so. I could not do the great things in this world. I could not teach, for I did not know enough for that profession; I had not genius enough to paint, or to model, or to write, or to sing, or to act. I could have done some useful and bumble work that would have enabled me to support myself, only, as society is now arranged, I should have lost caste by the atte opt. I could have been a good milliner or dressmaker, but you wouldn’t have liked to have your aunt engaged in one of these occupations, you know, though I’m sure I could have been successful in either. Socie ty has been hal’d on me, but I'm glad I didn’t revenge myself on the conventionalities that fettered me, by doing the injustice to any man of marrying him when I didn't love him. Dear children, it's an awful thing to do, both for yourselves and the man you marry; and it will be a good thing for all concerned, when you girls are brought up like your brothers, to ea ii your own living, and to marry—not for a home—but for love. That good cime is com ing, my darlings, though I may not live to see it.” “Is it, Aunt Eleanor?” asked her nieces, laughingly. Is, indeed? Who can tell?—Laura Curtis T>,. n_A_ INSURANCE.

The Peruvian Syrup, a Protect ed Solution of the Protoxide of{ Iron, is so combined as to have the character of an aliment, as easily digested and assimilated with the blood as the simplest food. It increases the quantity of Nature’s Otvn Vitalizing Agent, Iron in the blood, and cures “athousand ills,”simply by Toning up,Invigorating and Vitalizing the System. The en riched and vitalized blood per meates every part of the body, repairing damages and waste, searching out morbid secre tions, and leaving nothing for disease to feed upon. This is the secret of the won derful success of this remedy in curing Dyspepsia, Liver Com plaint, Dropsy, Chronic Diar, rlioea, Boils, Nervous Affections, Chills anti Fevers, Humors, Loss of Constitutional Vigor, Diseases of the Kidneys anti Bladder, Female Complaints, and all diseases originating in a bad state of the blood, or ac companied by debility or a low state of the system. Being free from Alcohol, in any form, its energizing effects are not fal lowed by corresponding reac tion, but are permanent, infu sing strength, vigor, and new life into all parts of the system, and building up an Iron Con stitution. Thousands have been changed by the use of this remedy, from weak, sickly, suffering crea tures, to strong, healthy, and happy men and women; ami invalids cannot reasonably hes itate to give it a trial.
