A STRANGE DISCOVERY.
as old soi.mr.u's stoky.
It was a beautiful, clear night,
but cold bitter cold. Tho moon
was at its full, and shed a rich, mel
low light upon the enow encrusted
earth, that sparkled and shone like
diamonds. The wind blew perfect
gales, and coming from the hilltops
with a ni9h, saluted my cheeks with
an icy, chilling kiss, and then fled
shrieking down into the valley. It
was a bitter night, aud my blood
seemed to so freeze in my veins that
1113 heart at times would actually
stand still. It was a weird hour,
the long, ice-clad limbs of the leaf
less trees, wrought most strange and
startling figures on the moonlit
ground, coining and going. Ever
and anon tho melancholy voice of
some affrighted bird would break
upon ihy hearing with an awful dis
tinctness. Then the howl of tho
wolf would be borno vibrating to my
car, a most dismal sound. It was
hut few minutes after miduight
that most ghostly of all hours in a
soldier's watch. "It was such a
night as this, that poor Jack Downey
disappeared," I said to myself, and
then with a shudder at the recollec
tion of the poor fellow, I added,
"God's mercy on him," and quick
ened considerably my pacing. I
was then a private in Company A,
the regiment stationed at Fort C
and was this night tho sentry on
Post No. 1G, that girted in its beat,
the entire frontage of the forest
opening. A dismal place even when
the sun was the brightest, but at
night a place that caused a fellow's
heart to sink at the thought of stop
ping there, tho two lonely hours of
It was just two weeks sinco the
sudden and unaccountable disap
pearance of Jack Downey, a cor
poral in our company. Jack was aa
cheerful and as whole-souled a fel
low as could bo met in a long day's
march. Popular and true, one would
never suppose that such a man
could have an enemy: yet he dis
appeared, and the eager scouring of
the entire surrounding failed to dis
close any clew of his whereabouts.
He had been paid off that day, and
it was at first supposed he had yield
ed to the demon of drink, and would
be found in some of the friendly re
sorts. Every place within miles was
visited, but no one knew anything
about him. All that we could gather
was, that he had gone on leave in
company with Sergeant Jones, but
the sergeant, on being questioned
stated that they had parted at the
"Cannon Ball," a famous resort of
the boys, and he was corroborated by
the landlord. Finally we abandoned
all farther search, and on the expir
ation of ten daj's, the genial Jack
Downey was officially declared a
deserter, and a reward posted for
his capture. Thero was more than
one sad heart when he was so de
clared, for a true soldier would
rather see his companion dead than
his name marked with the terrible
Somehow, that night, I could not
for the life of me, get rid of the
thought of poor Jack. Do vthat I
would, direct my thoughts as best I
could, they would of a surety drift
back to the samo melancholy iub
ject. At times the shadows would
so shape them, that I would think I
saw him standing before me, and
make me, with a shudder, turn
away, then again viould I fancy that
the winds mournfully whispered his
name. The thought of the poor
fellow so grew upon me, that I be
came also frantic, and if ever a
hardened sinner repeated the pray
ers of his childhood, I repeated
those of mine that the terrible
hauntings might leave mo. Kind
heaven at last seemed to have heard
my prayer, for I grew more com
posed, and with a lighter heart,
started to walk rapidly down the
On reaching the lower end, I
stood leaning on my musket, gazing
vacantly across the snow covered
waste that intervened between me
and the woods. I had not remained
in that position long when I was
startled by what appeared to be the
figure of a man, coming from tho
woods towards me. In an instant
I was in readiness to receive him,
and anxiously awaited his approach.
On, on he came, steadily aud noise
lessly. When about thirty paces
off 1 brought my piece to a charge,
and, in a frozen, husky voice, cried
out, "Who comes there!"' No an
fcwer. Tho figure unhecdingly con
tinued to come on. "Who comes
there?" I again cried, but in a
louder voice and with more deter
mination. Still without answering
the figure approached. Astonished
and not a little terrified, I gazed
eagerly upon the intruder, and noted
that he wore the uniform of a cor
poral in our own service. When
about fivo paces from mo he halted,
and the moonlight falling directly
on his faco, I saw, as I am a Jiving
man, I saw tho features of Jack
Downey. With horrified eyes I
gazed upon him, hardly crediting
my Bcuseb. It was certainly either
Jack or his ghost. I am not a
coward. I havo faced, death without
flinching, on many a hotly contested
Held, but I must confess I felt
ready to drop, and could only ojacu
lato in a feeble voice, "Jack!"
Slowly the figure turned and raising
his arm pointed towards tho woods;
whilbt with tho other hand ho slowly
beckoned mo to follow. Involun
tarily I did so, and continued to do
so until wo had penetrated a short
distance into tho woods, when sud
denly it stoppedstopped near a
clump of bushes, n few yards from
the old abandoned cart road. Then
turning full upon me he pointed to
wards a spot a couple of feet from
him, and then appeared to slowly,
slowly fade away. Just then tho
wind moaned most dismally, and a
feeling of dizziness so took posses
sion of me that I fell to tho ground
almost in a faint. In a few minutes
I was on my foot again, and with a
sorry attempt at bravado, endeavor
ed to laugh the matter of. I could
not. Was I not in the woods and off
my post? And did I not come there
at the beckoning ofsomething un
natural? 1 soon made up my mind
to investigate the spot, anyhow, so
leaning 1113 musket against a tree, I
got down on my knees, and began
clearing away the clump of trees
and faggots. In a short time the
obstruction was removed, and in the
bright moonlight that came through
the trees, I behold tho body of Jack
(J'o bo continued.')
THE TRUST FEVER.
The trust fever is spreading in
Europe, notwithstanding the disas
trous ending of the attempt of the
copper sj'ndicatc to control the out
put of that metal. The latest move
in this direction is the attempt at
consolidating the coal mines of
Great Britain. A capital of $500,
000,000 is needed, and, it is claim
ed, can be obtained for this pur
pose. But an unexpected factorinthe
scheme has appeared in the shape of a
threat by the Coal Miners' Union to
antagonize the proposed trust and
fight it to the end. Whether the
plan can be carried out in the face
of such opposition remains to be
