*A A FADED LEAF. can hardly believe it even HOW. If there was one person in this world whom I should have thought safe from the remote*#- chance of matrimony, that person was Aunt Hetty—dear, placid, middle- aged Aunt Hetty. And yet I have just seen her drive away from the door hand-iii-hand with her handsome husband, and looking as sweet and bonny as any young bride of 19, not­ withstanding her silver hair. It has: all happened so quickly and in such a wonderful, fairy-tale kind of fashion, that I feel as if it had taken my breath away, and aa if I nust Teally sit down and rest a bit and? think the matter over. I have lived with Aunt Hetty ever since mother died. When I came to her 1 was quise a little tot, and now I am six-and-twenty, so you may imagine it is a gcod many years ago. Auntie mast have been a young woman then, but .somehow she has always seemed middle-aged to me. She was always so calm and gentle and did everything in such a quiet, business-like way that I regarded he...

"J" A THE MISER'S THREE GIFTS. Once upon a time there dwelt upon the surface of the errth—no matter where—an old miser named Donald McDee. He lived alone in a little cabin, and never spent a penny more than he could help. His room -was full of odds and ends that he had picked up in his wan­ derings, and never could bring himself to part with. Old ropes, rusty nails, crooked hooks, tatters of old* 'shawls, tin pans with holes in them even a lit­ tle box full of crooked pins, for good luck. The children called him a wizard, and threw stones at him as he passed through the village in his queer high-crowned hat and old coat with long, flapping tails, and he sometimes begged them for "bits of the dinners they carried in their school •'bags. Indeed, lie was in the habit of begging of anyone who would listen to him. But whetu Wght came and everyone had gone to bed, Donald would close his shutters and bar his door, and lifting a stone in the floor, would take from beneath it a pot. of gold ...

'msm %m '•HrjSSv I 5$& h. TARDY LOVERS. A 0*«ftt Problem. Imdon Standard "We must confess that we 5o wot often feel much admiration for popular songs, but on© was warbled by a damsel in our presence not long ago which strode us as being one o£ the most clever concoctions for young lady consumption which we had ever met with. In simple diction, and with much pathos, not unmingled with humor, it embodied the feelings of a maiden who had*worked herself up to this desperate resolution that her lover must either "come up to the scratch" or be shown to the front door, and then came in the appeal: So if there is nothing you're waiting to say, Don't yon think we had best say adieu?" with a minor third for the last syllable positively melting in its plaintivenesa. She thus puts the young man into a corner, and though we do not get his answer, we trust that he is thoroughly ashamed of himself, and runs off to be "asked" forthwith. Now this song ought to command a large market, bo cause th...

Letter to Washington Republican. In a former letter, published in The Republican, the "writer stated that the brigade to which he belonged (Kemper's of Longatreet's grand division) had been defeated and more than decimated in killed, wounded, and captured the day before at Frazier'a farm. Accordingly, in order to give the brigade, a chance to jjet together all its available men, strag­ glers, cooka, and even baggage guards who had been left behind—all were to take their places in the ranks, for the coming battle—it was placed a good dis­ tance in the rear of the right wing, which early in the morning began to take position as rapidly as the dense pine and scrub oak forests would permit. So that the inen of the brigade had a good chance to guess, by noting the bulk of the troops passing and th...
