If you'are beat on marrying a woman who doesn't care, one fig for you, you are at liberty to do BO, \ --- •-\Very-TCHrPen.\ — : - Mr. Clive Soulard spoke very quietly, and bent his handsome eyes on the girl with un expression of mingled nonehal- ali.-e and omuaeUleut. \I di 'ii \t consider it very well, Mr.' Suulnrd,' 1 she yvent on, nettled by his Hiiieiude. \ It may be very well for you, who maijry un-for mv money, and so git all you wiiut. h'.s bad, and wieked, and cruel, andyou know it.\ , \Ah! Indeed, Pen,*I\was not award that the advantages of this ftrraiigeniriif were not mutual.' I am sure I supposed it a purely business matter on both sides.\ \Tobe sure, but you have everything else to gain, and I everything to lose.\ The shadow of a flush arose in Clive Soulord's cheek, but it was gone before IViielope Bradshawe saw it, and he utrKWf ml, in the light, eareless tone hi had used all along : < . \If you mean by gain that I give up poverty for wealth, the raiseties or bachelorhood fur married blessedness, I don't know but what you're right as to that; but even then what do I gain that you don't? You can have the mon^y without me more than I can have the money without you, and really, Pen, if von are as lovely as a Peri, * I think I may lay claim to\the good looks of An- tinons-leh, Pen?\ running his sieiul-t white fingers through the halo of hron/.e brown curls that covered his handsome head, and Bending a laughing glanee into the mirror opposite that reflected a face beautiful almost as a woman's. \Tush said Pen, coloring with im- patience, \ I don't think that this is any time to talk nonsense and make fun.'' \Perhaps not,\ he replied, with a hopelessly comical sigh; \but I can't help being jolly, dear. It isn't every ilny one gets a fortune and a wife in a breath, aiid, without the trouble of asking forh,-r either.\ \You haven't got the wife yet, Clive 5 Boulard; and if you were a man you wouldn't take her on such conditions.\ \Conditions? I didn't know there were any. It's the money that is con- ditional, not the wife,\ Poor Pen was ready to cry with vex- ation. The handsome, provoking fellow only laughed at her whatever she said. She might .protest as much as she liked against the match which her uncle had planned so arbi- trarily, making the inheritance of his money conditional on these two marry, ing. Clive Soulard only laughed athe'r, and made jesting responses to all her appeals. —^-r Peuelrrpp Bradshawe bad been l>rougfat up as the adopted child and heiress of her uncle, Reese Bradshawe. A year before, this uncle had died, leaving a will, which was not to be opened till he had been dead twelve months. That will, being read at the appointed time, proved to contain the somewhat arbitrary dietttm that his beloved niece .should not have his money without she married hi- in-loved ci.usi'n, Clive Sou- lard, the saul Ci.vi.. lu-iug -till siugle at the opening of the will. Pen Bradslutue was an exceedingly pretty girl, but contrary, captious ancl belffW illed, a.- prctt\ girl- are apt to be, and she frowned ni the most decided manner upon the unexpected tenor of her uncle's will. If. he had given Clive half the property she wouldn't have minded, but to force her to make her choice between t poverty alid Clive—to oblige t a saucy little flirt like her to marry .anybo^lyv-was aboiainable. She forgot, 'eveh in her own mind, to add to the sum of her grievances 6n the subject the fact that the provoking will ciit short the most delightful little flirta- tion ^Iiss Pep had ever indulged in. She had known Clive all her life: in- deed, they were distant cousins, and <\hve had spent a goixl share of his boy hiKnl v and njo.-t of his vacations, dnring n'lund aud college days, at Uncle Brad- blmwe's hoiihc, where pretty Pen alter- nately petted am i plagued \the life out of hini. It was had enough to be snubbed and . coaxed by so pretty a girl as Pen while he wus in jackets and sire in pinafores, but to U::\f such a state of affairs con? Hum—well, it was so highly unpleasant to ilr. ilivu Soulard .that he.could not itm.-fid hi.- exidtation tit the turn which was ii..,.-.-arilv given to affairs by the_ tiilus of t'ncie Reese's will. He at mice -topped the suppliant air, and became nonchalant, careless, and at his ease^r-provokingly so one must al- low, \under the circumstances. Pen, Bradshawe could hardly be blamed for not liking the tables turned upop her la- this suminary manner. She persisted. that she did not like Clive .one bit, not in that way, but she eguld not give up her heirship and be i poolr sewing-girl like Kitty Bryee, or a musiy-tearUex. like Ellen.Steele,_or_in_ j -bort, be jiixir at all, and so she told Clive that she would marry him for that reason and no other, if he had a mind to take her, knowing that she did not love him, and never expected to, and that sba thought it a shameful piece of business altogether-^a cruel conspiracy against a poor girl who couldn't help herself— while he could. .. For her part, she should be afraid to marry anybody that felt toward h*r as she did toward Clive Soulard, etc., studying to say whatever she judged Was l»estealeulated--to -yrovoke-her prospec- tive spouse out ot that sorry nonchalance he had only so lately assumed. ' But Clive was not to be provoked. He iisMired Pen that it made no sort •f difference her not loving him—the uiotiey was. the main object--which as- siirancej strangely enough, did not eoni- I'O 11 Pen a particle, or make her one whit :,ioiv resigned to her fate. He utterly t. Willed withdrawing.his claim either to the money or Pen. The possession of the former being .•ouditipual upontaking,the._latte*-jj«w_ L-oiild he be gravely questioned, Pen thought if he were not utterly selfish, instead of forcing her into niarryiug a man she didn't like, he would refuse to fulfill the condition of the will himself, and so peiierously bestow upon her the property and freedom at the same time. But Clive disclaimed ail pretensions to uustelli.-huess, and candidly told ,hei* if, -he had Mich an invincible rop'u'guanOit to him !>IMI had bettor give up the prop- erty and secure her freedom Jit the-same time. - •. _. He-thmigUt it would bo a pity to mar- • ry a man she disliked so much as she seemed to do. Now, with him! it was lin'eivnt. Ho didn't dislike Pen, by my means; he was rather thankful, oil the whole, that \dear old Uncle Roe«e hadn't thrown Ann Thompson in his • .»ay instead of. Pen Bradshawe; he \lould tlihrk\ of 1 plenty of worse hic~nin- bnuices to a line property like that than Pen. r . Vastly consoling this style of talk, was it not? Was he laughing at her, or was he in earnest? Hail he only been play- ing with her all that past time, when fie \ seemed to live on Her smiles—when a frown, or a petulant word, would make hini apparently the most wretched of men? Or, had he loli, most heart-rend- ing srlpposition!) the money in view all the time, and onlv sought her to secure that? • It looked like it, cortaiuly—this sud- leu assumption of indifference to her pleasure, this OJXJII exultation to the terms of her uncle's will. PeB the beautiful, the bewitching, the tantaliz- ing was quite nonplussed. If she realty thought, if she were postively certain, _ that ne wasn't doing this t6\plagtie her, \ that he didn't care for anything but the money, she wouldn't have him to save his lifty; she'd go off and be a governess, or take in sewing for a living before she would marry him. No, she wouldn't either ; in this cage she'd have him out of spite. In short, besides having a natural shrinking from seVing for a living, Pen con- sciously or otherwise, did not dislike her future spouse quite to the extent sh* pretonded. Somewhere in her capricious bean there was a soft place for Clive Soulard all the time. \ He was so handsome, so graceful, all the other girls were in love with nim if she was npt, And so the weeks wore away until the wedding day ; Clive, light-hearted,'care- less, laughing, hauteringly sympathetic, ten.timesashandsomeandagreeable ashe had ever been, but not in the leastTover-^ like— anything but that; Pen, sulky and saucy by turns, but really miserable, and Secretly, for a reason she coiUd not 'confess to herself, but much less BO to Mr. Clive Soulard. Pen, the invincible, was in love at last, and, of all men, with Qlive Soulard. If Clive suspected it he kept his suspicion? to himself, and never, by any chance, dropped word or look that could be con- strued as symptomatio of the tender pas- sion. The change in Pen Bradshawe since the reading of her uncle's wili- was too marked not to be apparent. People commented variously upon it. Some pitied her, for_being compelled to a mar? riage so distastHul; others thonght, with Clive Soulard, that if it was dis- , tasteful she alone was to blame if she did-»-4^sliaesfi--tJba,-atteest- -poverty.in preference to it. Pen, meanwhile, meditating and spec- , nlating constantly on Clive's clianged de- meanor, concluded at last that he was as indifferent to her as he -pretended-to lie ; ttnd she. resolved, if nothing occurred before the wedding-day, to refuse then •• o marry him t whether or no. She had made all the usual prepara- tions. Her dressing-room was sfrewn with snowy Jace, silk and muslins; the bridesmaids for the occasion were being drilled and Otherwise got -ready for thair part in the approaching cere- mony. • The wedding, morning came. Forth from her chamber floated the bride, clad in flowing snow, and «ur- rounded by her bridesmaids, like the Queen rose in » garden of blossoms; forth stepped the bridegroom, hand- some, gracefnl, light of heart, and exultr ant. Penelope let him take Tier Tiino^* and lead her forward, without liftingher eyes, till they stood at the very altar steps. Then, suddenly, she lodked up, first at him, then at the assembled guests, and, drairing her hand from him, sh§ said, with «low, deliberate enuncia- tion : *' I cannot do it. Better poverty, tet- ter Wretchedness, bettor anything, than such a marriage as thir. I have changed my mind. Good friends, it is a pity to disappoint, you,, but. there. wilL.be. no wedding to-day,\. So saying, slle glided through the a.-- tonished groups and left them .-taring breathlessly after her. The* luckless brirfegiooui knew uot what to say, or ,to do, or where to look. He was taken at a.disadvantage ; wouiuU ed full sore at a point where, being tender but imsuspicious, he had not suf- ficiently gtiardedhimself. Was it the mortification, the slight, the being so publicly rejected by SKI lovely a girl as. Pen Bradshawe ? \ Or\ did his very inmost heart quail with fear at 'the thought of kxdng, after all, a woman who, with all her coquettish frivolousuess, .was worth more to him than all the other women put together —tlian twenty fortunes like the <me ahe forfeited to liim by refusing to 'become his wife ? Certainly Clive Soiilard's handsome face had suddenly taken the hue of death, and his voice was unsteady as he tried to murmur something that sound- ed l^ie a confused apology or explana- tion of this strange cutttrttt tups. The gueste fell into little ^yhisperiug knots,\ the clergyman who was to havo officiated looked eonfouuded^ and the bridal attendants stoJ« half-frigUteiied, curious glances at Olive Soulant, who, with his eyes downcast, his whole ap- pearance expressive of the agitated con flict going urn withiu him, stood strug- gling vainly to recall his self-possession. Presently he drev> nearer the clergy mau, said «oniothing r iuaiulibh' to others, and with a half-di-prei-atory glance l,|t the room. -. In a_»tU.IH'faetioli_s.-ar.Celj:..lens, tlmii his, Penelope had inanaged somehow to reach her own ehannVr again, and was sitting amid the chaotic ttfiray of bridal gear that str<>«eil the room, when a tittiid knock sr»multMl at the door. AH her energies rallied at the sound. Pansing deliberntelv'. to rouge her white checks, she waited for a second fcnogky luid opened the dmir, • It was SouJiml him-elf who sbsMl there, palid, yet wsolute—agitatod, but determined. Fire seemed to .flash from his hand- some eyes as they met hers ; his IUW- trils quivered and dilated. Ilojlookod his true self—miiuly --li\t ea-*.ly~ bafih'd this- time. It was on IVn's lipsfto say, in the us- surauee of the tnumph she felt to V» hers, \ Oh, it is you, is it?\ Bht, m stead, she (\aught at the door mi steadily and said : \Oh \ Do you love me, Pen? That is what I came for—what I will know.\ \You haM»n't anv right to ask me, Clive, after—after all you've said am\ done to make me think you didn't care a straw for me, or anything but ttw UIOK- -t»y,\ siutl Pen. faltt-rmgly. \ I was hwbish, trying to pay off old. scores, that's all. tlaveyuu better thai' my life, Pen. If you are not going f. share it with ine, I'll make a bonfire o) Uncle Reese's fortune and shoot myseli aflei-ward. Will you^omo now ?\ Perhaps that? particular bevy of wed ding guests waiting below never- experi- enced a profoundor sensation than wfu-u the drawing-room door oi>ened agai.i aiiil Mr. Clive Soulard marched in with the look of a conquering hi ro, ooiuliiet- ing Pen Bradshawe, blushing, smilius tmd tearful, but evidently glad and will ing.- They walked straight to the old place, the minister managed to keep his senses nader the most trying circumstances, the words were said—the twain, mada one ; and if one might judge from the expression of the eye and' countenance, two happier people than these never wore matrimonial chains. A Story ABont BOOTS. VT. Muller, the head physician of tne Prussian General Staff, was allowed to go to Japan, in order to assist in the arrangement of the new Japanese Mili- tary Academy. When the hour came for his presentation to the Mikado, he nstnralrr clothed himself in full uni- form. The oqurt officials informed him that he could not be permitted to enter the awful preeenoe unless he complied with Japanese usage, and pulled off his boots. Dr. Muller refused to comply. There was nrach debate over the diffi- culty, the Court Chamberlain insisting ' that the physician must unboot him- | self, and he declaring that ho.would not • enter without his boots. Al last Dt, Muller hit upon the ingenious nation : of casting all the responsibility of the siteation-upon- th*-Emper«r-Willieku. I \My master, the German Kaiser,\ J he \commanded me to present myself v : before the angust Emperor of Japan in full Prussian uniform. Now the boots constitute an important part of the Prussian uniform, and I dare not »p- ! pear as his representative without these imr«rtan.t acoessoriee,* The Chamber^ • UinwenttotheMiXadowiththisexplana I tion, and the result was that Dr. Muller marched into the audience chamber ip his - boots. His was the first shoe- leather which had ever desecrated the floor of the Mikado Palace, in Tokio. Is the early settlement of Illinois and Miseonri two trappers were going down the Mississippi river to New Orleans 6a a flatboat. Every well-regulated boat in those days carried plenty of whisky aboard. The trappers tapped a Jbarrel with a gimlet and sacked the wnHky through a straw. The Misson- rian \pnked r bnt the Illinois man, like his sneoesron, being proof against so weak a benrerage, kept his down. Tram thai daw Dlta^s men were called \Buck- sra\ and MiMowiaM \Pukes Himloo MIUIMBU. The Hindoo women, when young„are deHtiateiand bemrtrftriv so far \as we can reconcile beauty witn the ofrve com- plexion. \ They are finely proportioned, their limbs small, thei*-features soft and regular, and their eyes bright and languishing; but the. bloom of beauty soon decays, and age. make* rapid progress before they have seen $0 years. This may be awotjnted for from the heat of the climate and the customs of the country, as they are often mothers at 12 years of age. No woinarj can be more attentive to oleaaliness than the Hindoos; they take every njiethod to render their persons delicate, soft and attractive. Their dress ia peculiarly becoming, consisting of a long piece of silk, or cotton, tied '•around tie waisti or hanging in a grace- ful manner to\ the test; it is afterward brought over the body in negligent folds; under this they cover the body with a short waistcoat of satin, outwear n6 linen. Their long black hair is adorned with jewels and wreaths of flowers; their ears are bored in many places, and loaded with pearls; a varie- ty of gold chains, strings of pearls and precious stones, mil from the neck over the bosom, and the arms are covered with bracelets from the wrist to the el- bow. They have also gold and silver chains rQimd the ankles; and aiiabinid- ance of rings on the fingers and toes; onioug thost> ou the fingers ia frequent- ly a small mirror. I think the rioher the dress the less becoming it appears, and a Hindoo Woman of distinction al- ways seems to be overloaded with finery; while the villago nymphs,, with fewer ornaments, but .lujthe same de- cant drapery, are more \captivating— -.although there are Teiy few women, dyen'of the lowest families, who havo not some jowols at their marriage. In tbo'e eiternal decorations ooiuast the pride and pleasure of these uniu^ struo&sd females:; for very few, oven- in the best families, know how to rend oi write, or are- capable of intellectual ei> joymenti We learn front Homer that the- women iu - ancient •Greece always ' -kept in a retired part of tire house,- OUT-- phiyed in embroidery or, other feminine occupations; and at this day the In- iliau womea are never seen by those wlio visit the. master of the family. They know but little of the'world, and WO not permitted to eat with their hus- band or brother; nor to associate with other men. „ • A Jolly Wedding. Iii Central America is a country called Towka, and without doubt the Towkatis, whatever else they may be, are the jj 1 Host people in the world at a wedding. They appear to be sftch an ignorant race as to be unable to keep record of the. age of their' children, except in a manner somewhat \similar to that adopt- ed by Robinson \Cnuoe with Jus notched post for an almanac™ The Towkatis, tioweyer, do not notch their children They hang round thoir necks at birth, a string with one^bead on, and at the ex- piration of a year they add another bead, and so on, tho main object being seemingly that there may bo no mistake when the young pooplo arrive at a mar- riageable ago. Wuon a girl hBrnbers fifteen beads she ia marriageable, but the young man mast possess a necklace of twenty before he is reckoned capu bio of taking on, himself so serious n responsibility. But the wedding feast is the tiling. The invited guests assemble on what answers to our village green, and se£ in their midst is a canoe, the property of the bridgroom, brimmihg with palm wine, sweetened with honey and thick- ened with crushed plantains. The drinking enps are calabashes, which are, set floating in the fragrant liquor, and, seated round it, tho company fall to a mark of politeness being to drink out oi as many calabashes that havo been drank out of by somobody else as poiun ble.- It should be mentioned, however, to the Towkan's credit, that his bride is not present at this tromendous drinking bpnt, or, rather, boat. She remains in her parents' hut, and when her intended has finished with the calabashes he takes his whistle of bamboo and his \ tom-tom,\ which is a hollow little log, tied over at each end with bite of leather, and, seating himself at the head of the dwelling of his parents-in-law in prospective^he commences to bang and tootle sweet music, until the heart of the tender creature within is doftened, and thev let him in. Should CoiiKiiK KIMT Number three of a serins of priw questions promulgated by the London Whitehall Reviein in, \Shonld adnlt soi«ii», male and female, lie allowed to kiss eacb other ?\ Sqroe Of the answers received are as follow*; Yes, because Jacob, after having personated Esiiu, kissed his Cousin • Rachel as soon as ho saw her, and their parents approved. Then they will care for it as little a» grocers* boys do for sugar. Shakspeare says, \Kiss me, sweet coz,\ and Tenryson says of himself and his \ Cousin Amy:\ \And our spirits rushed together at the touching of the lips.\ As a lady is eoncerned it mast be considered a fair proceeding. If she is married it cannot be amiss. Brothers and sisters kiss, and their children should follow their example. \One touch of nature makes the whole world kin,\ -A kiss being a tench of nature, they should kiss to make them still more akin. Family affection is a tender and beau tifol plant which cannot be too care fnfly nnrtnred. Irt meet and drink thai ia depriving afsxub/of food. F«rs<raal Peculiarities* Some years ago J had a lad in my employ who had the habit when unex- pectedly spoken to of pricking up his ears in so decisive a manner as to re- mind one of Press or of Tay when sud- denly called. Marie Louise, the second wife of the great^ Napoleon, Was in the habit of amusing the ladies of her court at their private soirees by turning her i ears almost completely round, and, in a manner, closing them up. She did this by a peculiar motion of the jaw, and she is said to^av.e prided hersefl on the ex- ploit not a little. A man.f knew well wore an enormous shook of raven hair, and v/ould allow himoelf to be hfted by the hair from the p ground by any one who was strong enough to do it, and to be svrang to and fro like a peiidulum.^-or to be ~ ditigged aiohg the floor. The faouity of sleeping at will was .one of*tke ejidowmeHtsof the first Na^ poleon, who, it is said» could sleep any length of time, long or shorthand awake at the time, almost' to a minute, he hud resolved upon. • > Among tho muscular movements not common, I have noticed jeveral in- stances of persons who could • throw Iwok tho four fingers, of either hand untirthey stood quite perpendicular to __the.baok of the luvnd and wrist. Other instances I have seen, thongh but a few, of persons who can project the jjiwcr joint of the thumb almost into the hollow of the palm. In ueither of these eases is the use or the ordinary symmetry of the hand at «U affeotod. Of left-hondod people wo have all seen luauy, and they abound lusoug the wo iking classes; but of tho ftrtibandist, o'r hoth-!i£mded, that is, of persons who could do everything with either baud, as well with one as the- other, I havef -known-but one in the-whole -course-of my lite. Thin was an orplnui, boy who had had no parental ottro, but hail boon left almost to himself from infancy, i^uiok, active, and sharp-witted, he had taught. hirascM many things tolerably weh, coiihl draw fairly, could, play tho tiddio and the flute,jind wrote .admira- bly and with unrivaled rapidity with either hand, There are many persona who, from causes they can never explain, have a re- pugnance, almost aaiouutiUfj;to honor in some-oases, for certain animals. The French Oenoral Jnnot,' who waK as. cool tis a outiunber .amidst a storm of bullets, and would face the cannon's mouth un moved, would tako' to his,heels at th•> sight of a live frog, and would not re- cover his equanimity for hours. /*»^ I have known a man -who eouW not touch mutton, however cuoked, white ho Would eat heartily of Jiny other me it. Some there are in whom the. thought of eatiug hare or rabbit excites loathing; some who would starve rather, than eat shell-fish of any kind; and thero are not a low to whom butter and ohoeao are aboii'nnatioiis.

In Europe, however; it seldom exceeds tho dimensions of the smallest tree, while in its native state it groWBto over ninoty feet in height, Every part of this tree is valuable in medicine, though we niroly employ any of it but its fruit, that is, the lemon itself. And every one knows how to employ this, as in lemonade: To squeeze the juice into cold water, this is the shortest Way, m to cut: it into slices and let it soak tn cold wafer, or to cut it in-slices andthou boil it. Either way is good. Lemonade is one of the best and safest drinks for any person, whether hi health o,r not. It is suitable to all diseases, is excellent in sickness -in cases of jaundice, grav- el, liver complaint-, inflammation of tlio bowels, and fevers. It is a specific against tworms and skin Complaints. ThepippiuH crushed may also bo mixed with water and sugar and used as a drink. Lemon-juio,o is. tho best anti' seottiutie roj&edy knftwn, Tt 4*«t-<Hily cures tho disease, but preven'w it; Sail- ors ntako a daily uso of it for this .pur- pose. A phyaiciaii suggests nibbing of the gums daily with lemon-hiiee to keep thorn in health, The bands and nails aro also kept clean, white, soft and supple by the daily useof lemon instead of soap. It also prevonts chilblains. Lemon is used iu intermittent fovers mixed with strong, hot black tea Or cof- fee, without sugar. Neuralgia may bo otirod bjr rubbing the part affected with a lemon. It is valuable also to^enre warts, and to destroy dandruff on the head, by rubbing the roote-of the hair with it. In fact, its\ uses are manifold, and tho more we employ it externally the better we shall find ourselves. Nat . nr»l remedies are the best* and nature is our best doctor, if we would only listen toit. _I}ecidediy-,rU6*ybur hands, head and gums with it, and. drink lem- onade iu prtferi-'ucc to all other liquids. * A Kemarkable try.
