'1IL );EMARKAItLE ADVENTURE OF A 1l
COURIER OF THE C(ZAR.
At the czar's brilliant fete at. the
new palace of Moscow a shadow sat i
t, osn the face of the imperial host,
who every now and then withdrew to
hold a hurried consultation with a
trusted counselor. Siberia had been c
invaded by theTartar hordes of Feofar r
Khan, Emir of Bokhara, and the sin- 0
gle telegraphic wire which connected "
Russia with her most distant Asiatic 0
provinces had been cut that night in P
two places in western Siberia. The
czar had just received secret informa
tion that Colonel Ivan Ogareff, an able ft
but unscrupulous officer of semi-Tartar k
origin, had been the instigator of the e1
S-., ~4 was the. qp. his way to the
Auhtic froutier to assume command d

Khan. Ivan Ogarefi cherished an
undying hate toward the ,.zar's brother h

with him, had orce inflicted a humil- h
ation upon him. This prince would n
soon be at Irkutsk, the capital of west

To warn the unconscious prince of
the treachery which threatened him,
a mesenger must be found who united c
extreme hokiness to extreme caution,
and the utmost loyalty to the ut
most physical endurance. If any-i'
hody could elude death, discovery
or capture through the 5,200 a
vents which divided Irkusk from dl
Moscow it was Michael Strogoff, the 1i
handsome captain of the couriers of
the czar. So said the czar, when he

we unfiortunately, known to have a

bbut by disclaiming all he managed to
disarm immediate suspicions and to
make his escape on a swift horse which
he had purchased. After baffling the
Tartar horsemen dispatched in pursuit
by Ivan Ogareff, who had arrested and
imprisonedMarfa Strogof,; he was cap
tured byh the main lHody of the inva
ders unler Feofar Khan, who had just
detfeated a Russian division and takel
A few days later Ogareff joined the
emir, with his troops anm captives.
Among the latter, and thrown together
by the merest chance, were Maria and
Nadia, who were jealously watched by a
female gypsy devoted to Ogareff. This
untiring spy was present when Marfa
noticed her son among a crowd of cap
tives, end though the old woman in
stantly controlled her emotion, the
circumstance was renorted to the arch
rebel. The latter, to discover which
of the captives was the courier Strog
off. adopted the inhuman expedient of
ordering his mother to be knouted in
public. As the cruel instrument was
about to fall on the bare shoulders of
the heroic woman, Michael sprang
from the crowd, and seizing the
knout from the executioner's hand,
struck Ogaref across the face; thus
repaying the blow he had once en
daed from'te ge.
The punishment of Michael was de
cided, according to a Tartar custom,
by a priest opening the koran at ran
dom. The chief of the Uleonas thrust
his finger on the text: "And he will
no more see the things of this earth."
Blindness was, therefore, the penalty
imposed by the emir; and at the
close or a barbaric pageant the sen
tence was inflicted by drawing a red,
hot saber across his eyes. At the con
clusion of this savage act, Ogareff,
with supreme irony, held the letter of
the czar before Michael's eves, saying:
" Read now, and go to Irkutsk, and
repeat what you have read. The true
courier of the czar is Ivan Ocarefl."
The crowd had dispersed, and the
noises of a wild' debauch were heard
in the distance. Michael dragged
himself over to his Insensible mother
and kissed her white locks. As he
did so, a hand grasped his and he
heard a voice:
"Brother !" it said.

" Come, brother," replaid Nadia, "use
my eyes while your eyes sleep. I will
lead you to Irkutsk."
Three Tartar armies were concen

The Fall River manufacturers gen

of running by steam and the la I
amount necessary to pay the yearly i& I
terest of costly and extensive mill ha.
eaten up what little profit they hav
made during the jast three years, the 4
present busmness of nearly all the

prospect is oi a steady increase. The I
dronught during the past winter has i
stopped many mills which are depend.

ated a demand for cloths which the
Fall River manutecturers are prepared
to take advantage of. The present
production of all the Fall River milk
amounts to 5,850,000 yards per week,
on which there is a net profit of $58,

though Fall River manufacturers made
the first export of gools to England

There are some facts connected wi ith
he habit ot opium smoking, as prac

known to the general public, and
which have hitherto found no place in
the annals of the history of that vice,
and an appreciation of which is calcu

somehow from the poppy, and the
scientists, to speak exactly, that it is

and of which this article is intended to

and yet the present market price is

would seem to point to an extended
evasioi of the duty; but there is an
other explanation for it, viz. the su. t

the preparation of this drtg in Oregon,
the product of which enters into ac

Patti's contemplated divorce has oc
casioned a flood ,t gossip concerning
the Marquis de Caux. The marquil
first met the diva at the grand omncert
given by the emperor Napoleon, in the
palace of the Tuilleries in January,
1865. Thete was the emperor in the
very zenith of his popularity and pow-.
er, and the empress in all her beauty 1
literally covered with diamonds. As
the imperial party were departing an
ecuyer who stood behind them offered
to escort Adelina to her carriage. This I
gentleman was the Marquis de Caux,
a descendant of one of the few old mao
ble French families which had become I
reconciled to the empire. On the fol- 1
lowing day the marquis came with a
splendid pair of diamond ear-rings
and a superb bracelet. In spite, how-.
ever, of the kindest attentions, the
flowers and gallantries the marquis
showered upon her. Patti conceived for
him an antipathy almost invincible.
But the marquis persisted in his at
tentions, and contrived in one way or
another to be forever by her side. If I
she drove on the Bois de Boulogne, i

of them she declined in succession, in
timating that she desired to live only
for her art. Finally, at a concert, the
empress approached her and asked,
"Are you not tired of being single?
Why don't you marry?" and then and

is secret, but when it con es out the
gum has the black appearance of com

of passing the rubber between chilled
iron cylinders of many tons weight,
which are kept very hot and very

for "uppers is here spread upon and
fastened to long sheets of cloth. The
heels addl tap are stamped out of sheets
of gumi of the required thickness. The
rubber cloth is now carried to the cut

sent to the hootmakers. The boots are
made byhv men, the sloes or ordinary
rubbers by girls, while the overshoes
are made by either. One man will
make twelve or fourteen pairs of boots
a day, and receive twenty cents a pair.
An active girl will make from twenty.

the bootmaker is through they are
placed in an even, where for twelve
hours they are subjected t:o a tempers

are then ready for boxing and bshil

thousand painrs of bots, rubbers and
overshoes are turned out daily.
