iSToxt morning when I awoke, with the genial sunshino
streaming into my window, the event of tho past night
seemed like a curious dream or nightmare, and 1 almost
norsuaded myself that I had been tho subject of a wakin
dream : which are common enough, although I had never
experienced one myself before. Still I was not perfectly ; an immor

She blushed very deeply, and turned aside ner neau.
" Did you over hear of tho Oracle of Turn ?"
There was no reply.
"Ethel," I said, earnestly, talcing her hand,
lay down on a lounge and retlected over my visit. It had
been a happy one, and yet an unhappy one. In Ethel's
company i was liappy, and yet I was stung by the presence
of Hey wood, and the attentions he paid her. I reasoned
with myself, aud came to the conclusion that it was silly
on my part, and useless, to be discomfited by anything of
the kind. I couviuced mjrself that I ought to act as if
she.. was no more to mo than Rosa Herrick. I was' spoil
ing ray boliday by my absurd fancies, and if I could not
master myself, tho sooner I left for town the better
"Yes," I said to myself, " I will make my exit to-mor-mow,
or at least as soon as I can got away." Then I fell
to thinking about my uncanny experience with tho sphinx.
I was not satisfied that it was an illusion of the senses,
and yet I could think of no possible explanation of it. It
could not be a trick, for there was no mechanism about
tho little table, with its slender stem aud two knickkuacks.
Ventriloquism, too, was out of the question. I did not
know what to make of it. It occurred to mo to consult
the library about "illusions," "dreams," "spiritualism,"
&c., and I wont to it at once. On tho library table lay a
collection of newspapers and periodicals, some of which
were scientific, others popular. There was an electrical
journal amongst the former, with an illustrated cover
wn'ich. interested me. I took it up, and opened it at a
marked page. The mystery of the sphinx was at once
revealed. On this page was a diagram representing the
practical use of a new invention called tho telephone, an
instrument .conveying actual speech by means of electri
city1. It was the first I had heard of 'the articulating tele

Herrick tripping towards us with a roguish look in her
face, while Mr. iieywood stood behind at the far end of
" Destiny has revealed itself at last," she said in com
ing forward. &, .
"In spite of Turn's" groat hc1o;" I replied.
' Well, did I not tell you there were more things in
heaven and earth than were dreamt of in your philosophy?"
1 ' Name them, ' ' said I.
" Why, the telephone. And did I not tell you that there
were angels still who came to do good deeds to men ?"
" Who are they?" I asked.
"Why, myself," answered Rose. .
" That is Mr. Hey wood at the end of the walk. Had
we not better go to him ?" said Ethel. . , .
"That is my own Turn," said Rose, "and henceforth
I am-his own exclusive oracle."
stock it had was absorbed in a brass trap-door leading
into a cellar smelling of Verdigris, and filled with grease
and little pieces of rags.
"How do you kill any thing with this? Knock it
" W-a-a 1, yes, sometimes. That's, the. way I busted.the
stock thar whar the rawhide bandage air, a-kuockin' a
fellow down what made fun of it."
At this point the investigator suddenly lost interest in
the gun, and the party moved off into the country. As
they climbed the fifteenth fence, the old man paused on
the top rail and waved his hand indefinitely over the fields
" Gents, there's quails all about hyar, and over yander
yaas, an' thar's ono on 'em, now." he added, as ho drew
up his old residenter and knocked it over whore it sat.
"What! do you shoot a bird on the ground?. Why,
old man, that's infernal potting."
"'Sthat so?" inquired tho old man, humbly, as ho
picked up a piece of his gun-stouk that had been jarred
off by tho shot.
Just then a small covey of the birds took wing, and the
man who scorned pot-huuting blazed away with both bar
rels of a costly breech-loader, and missed.
"Whar? Whar do you shoot 'em, mister?" inquired
the old man, quietly, as he put his patch and bullet. on
the muzzle of his rille which he held between his legs
while ho rammed the charge home, and then, as a stray
bird flew overhead, ho raised and dropped it.
" Is that ar' the way you want it done, mister?"
Tho objector said nothing, and the gunning proceeded.;
but it soon became evident that the sportsmen wore doing
the gunning and tho old man was doing the shooting.
The lock tumbled oil his gun occasionally, and the bar
rel had a loose habit of parting company with the stock ;
but the old man had a pocket lull ot strings, and as last
as it gave out he tied it up" and made ready to shoot when
ever a bird showed, and he occasionally varied tho monot
ony of the proceedings by coolly blazing into the bushes,
whereupon his moau-looking dog would rush in and drftg
out a dead rabbitt.
The Easton party hunted faithfully, according to their,
lights, and shot upon the most scientific principles; but,"
somehow, 'the old man got the game, as the count showed
