Very early times an Judiati, condemned
to torture, wan tied to a Htako driven in
the prairie-giounil, and that ho was
made to run round at tin) extreme end
of a ropu fastened to his body, ami that
his feet striking so continuously in one
track had worn out t'le ground, which
remained barren. Numerous other
theories weru advanced, none, however,
. ascribing the circles to their true cause.
Few men have ever seen one of these
circles made, and as 1 may be classed
amoiijr those very few, I pui'pose in t lie
following relation to describe when and
how onu of those prairie circles was
tounileit, on the prairie lying between
Fox Lake am) Lake Kmily in I lodge
County. It might be remarked, how
ever, that thu statement is written out
from notes made long ago, to form one
ol a series of stories of early Wiscon
sin life, and further it is as related one
evenm"; to a company for their amusO'
incut. It was iu t Wi fall of 1840 when
the occurrence took place, ami during
one ot those thunder-storms not un
frequent in that summer. t was, too,
miring a tempestuous niglit, such n
onu as Hums described iu"TamO'-
" The wind blew as 'twad blown its lint.
The ntttlinjf showers rose on the blast;
The spi'isly (fleitnis the darkness Rwalloweil,
Loud, deep mid limn the thunder bellowed;

Iliad been sent for the doctor for a
neighbor reported in urgent need of a
physician s services, and had galloocd
over thu prairie with the niutterings of
the gathering storm all about me. The
physician at first declined to go, but on
uy representation that tlio woman was
; deathly sick started with me. It was
now night, the open prairie was at
least threo miles across, with but a
neck of openings and thicket, which at
one point crossed it the road passing
through tlm narrowest part of thu
thicket. Hy the time we had reached
the higli ground of the prairie it was
kcuu that the storm was nearer than wo
bail supposed it to bo when in the val
ley. Though to some extent reallv
terrific, there was yet something grand
unit lieu glorious in me wnoie scene.
To the northwest, there was an im
mense bank of clouds, tlio upper edges
of which wero frequently lighted "tip
with the repeatedly piercing Hashes of
lightning, sentlirwr a sheen thi-oiio-h
them and silvering for an instant their
ciraitiiui uriiuaney and Dnglitness
that was almost dazzling. Kvory mo
ment or so a heavier Hash lighted up
the lower edges, or streaked the horizon
line with a bluish or livid look, lasting
however only for an instant. As If an
ticipating the impending danger, lligbts
of birds were plainly heard overhead.
Intermingled with the scream of the
curlew, and the peculiar wierd notes of
the plover, and the buzzing sounds of
too grouse, as they hurried to a place
(if safety and shelter from the now rap
idly approaching storm, was the twitter
ing of the smaller binls, as all hy a com
mon instinct were fleeing the dangor
I lint threatened them. Looking uiiw nrd
there was no perceptible motion in (he
clouds the stillness was painful. The
whole aspect of the heavens was
changed. Itefore ascending the incline
to the high ground there wax apparent
ly tome chance to escape the storm and
reach our destination before it burst
upon us. Now it was too plainly to be
wen that a few moments more and it
would Ih down upon ns with a feaiful
force. The moon, nearly at its full,
Lad a sickly glare in its light, as if tim
idity had seized it, and it was scared at
the scene over which it looked. The
horses were evidently frightened. There
only one rtwd. and ibal but a faint
ne r.eross the prairie, with, however, a
d'-epiy indented Iii'lian trail upon w hich
we mere traveling, the horses clinging
t n.v ioitsly to it.

when the ipiiet followed, thu words:
" From lightning and tempest ami from
sudden death, good Lord, deliver us,"
were plainly heard, as 1 was listening
Intently to catch any s liable that might
fall from his lips.
A moment ur lo uiore of stillness
followed, when there was an opening
in the gloomy darkness, and from
thence came a burst of flame, neither
w hile, nor blue, nor any color we hud
ever seen. It was really horrid, chill
Inely, dreadfully depressing ami
frightful. H was evident that the
horses were sinking under Ihe fright
they had so long fell. Their limbs
trembled under them, and the quiver
ings: of the poor beasts imparled a
trembling to their riders. Wu both no
ticed how they invariably looked
Inward ono iioint of the compass,
seeming to strain every nerve to catch
sight of something, as if led to do so
by instinct. Suddenly the doctor
grabbed my arm, and yelled out with
a piercing shriek that startled the
horses as well as myself. "See! Good
Ciod, what isthat?'f
FarolVto the northwest, and high up
in the dome that now anpeared larger
than ever, was a small blue speck, alone
in the deep black darkness. It seemed
like a star, yet so intensely blue that the
eye became dazzled in an instant, and
tho sight had to be averted, unable to
stand the gaze. We both turned our
heads awny at tho sanio moment.
Again wo looked at the blue ball that
was rapidly approaching us. As it
nenred our spot the bluencss became
stilt mora brilliant, until tho sun at
noonday was not more powerful in
brightness of light. All at once the
ball, as if propelled from a gun, burst
into a ring with a bright blue center,
its extreme outer edges of licrcc and
glaring orange color, and enlarging as
it ilcscenilotl until it was several feet m
diameter, and striking the ground,
from which a circle of flame shot un,
and myriads of sparks tilled tho air near
The horses, at the instant the ring of
fire struck tlio earth, whirled round,
and only by chance did either of us
keep in our saddles. As if relieved
from the fright they had so long
suffered, they started off at a gallo!
it taking ns some minutes before wo
could quiet them down to an ordinary
trot, their heads, in suite of our efforts,
kept turning toward tho spot where
the lightning, or meteor, or electricity,
or whatever it was, had seared the
ground. Tlio rain was now coming
down in torrents, and the horses' feet
wero splashing, as they trotted along in
the Indian trail they followed. Tho
darkness was soon dissipated, ami in a
few minutes we could begin to distin
guish theoullino of the thickets and
timber that skirted the prairie, and by
the time we reached the log-house from
whence I startctl, the storm, with the
exception of the lighter rain, sonio few
Hashes of distant, and fast-receding
lightning, with an occasional clap of
thunder, was nearly over.
"How was the sick woman when
you got there?" asked ouo of the list
eners. " She was found by tho doctor sitting
up all right, and smoking herplpe," (a
common practice in those days) was the
."Then you had your ride for noth
ing?'' said another.
"To have been out in such a storm,
and see one of those circles made, was
worth half a lifetime."
"Did you go to the place the next
"Yes, and we found that the ground
wasseared into the distance of several
inches. All the grass was burned oft' in
a ring about fifteen or eighteen inches
wide, and about twelve or fifteen inches
across. On the inside, where the grass
was not burned at all, the rain slopped
the lire from spreading. The doctor,
long since dead, frequently spoke of his
niglit on the prairio, when he saw the
prairie circle made. Ho has a nephew,
now living at l'orlige, who has often
heard him relate his account of the in
cident above described. Ho had his
own theory about it, ami what caused
it, but which seemed inexplicable to any

Dresses composed of the new, very
delieato imitations of Valenciennes lace
and insertion, in combination with silk
mull, are now show u for w atering-place

made wholly of the lace. These dresses
aro worn, not over sl:k slips, as is usual,

Largu-patlcrncd brocades of sntin
with exquisitely tinted raised figures in
velvet are much employed for the fronts
of elegant evening toilets. Tho bodice
and train are made of white satin or
silk, or sometimes of a tint matching
the background of the brocade, or fre
quently of the color of the raised de
signs. Tho train is drawn aside, reveal
ing the tablier, and its edges are either
finished with a cascaded trimming of
colored Spanish lace, a roso plaiting of
tho plain jatin, or an immense feathery
ruche, into which aro set here and there
bouquets of the lincst French flowers
The graceful shepherdess hat is mtioh
worn by young girls. It comes n fancy
lace straw and Leghorn, and the flat
brim is lined insido with velvet. Some
times the brim is caught up at ono side,
but usually the hat is worn in true shep
herdess fashion. The velvet liningcon
trait.s or corresponds in tint with tho
flowers wherewith tho hat is decorated.
F'ieltl flowers look best against dark blue
velvet lining, pink roses against a black
one, and poppies, shading to llcsh tints,
against a very deep ruby una. Some of
tho hats are lavishly trimmed with
drooping plumes and huge scarlet roses,
or Willi n wreath of yellow hollyhocks.
The rago for bright yelluw flowers is,
however, on the decline.
Au "Oriental" robe bordered with
superb cashmere designs is worthy of
note. The skirt, wholly white, is shirred
here and there without any apparent
intention, while the tunic, which is in
reality a large half-shawl, falls quite
low on tho right side, displaying in full
tho large crimson palm at tho corner,
tho remainder being tlraw.i up high on
the left side and bunched carelessly in
the back. 'Jhe bodice opens like a
Japanese dressing-gown over a richly
embroitleretl waist-oat, and starting
from the sides is a silk scarf, which is
brought down and tied in front over
the shawl tunic. Tho whole bears a
certain negligence acceptable to ladies
who dislike aiivthinir formal and su.'-
g'.'stivo of steels and whalebones.
Iiatheretl sleeves are becoming eccen
tric, and modistes are not sntisticd with
putting them very high nn the shoulder,
but even those who are usually chary
of running into extremes are setting
still' muslin pulls under the top of Ihe
sleeve-lining to make the sleeve fuller
and higher. This padding with the
leg-o'-inutton sleeve is merely a revival.
Sleeves were padded lo make the
shoulders look high and wide when
George III. was King, and little swans
down pull's were sold at a few shillings
a pair to cause tho t boulders to look
higher. So we are only copying the

this objection has arisen from tlio prac

if the seed is app! c 1 liberally anil a

clumps will not occur. The seed should
not be mixo l with clover seed or other

Summer Maiiiiirement of Sheep,
During the hurry ami rush of the gen
eral farm work tlio sheep must not be
neglected. And while one can not give
general directions to apply lo a panic
uhir case, yet a few general observa
tions will bit of practical benefit.
Sheep should not be too closely con
fined, nor kept all summer on the same
range, unless it is large. A few head
of cuttle, with each bunch of sheep will
help in two ways. The cattle will cat
the large, coarse grass, nnd they will
very materially help to keep off all
dogs. Do not" fail to put on at least
one good-si.ed sheep-bell to every leu
sheep, and then kill every dog, large
and small, that conies around your
farm. Don't bury tho dogs, but bury
the carcass of nny'sheep or lamb.
Look after Iho lame sheep. This wet
summer, with high grass, or what is
worse shells, is very apt to give you
more or less trouble with lameness.
Fare the hoof carefully, half is in par
ing, and apply pulverized blue vitriol,
one pound; red lead, one pound; nitric
acid, eight ounces; lidding cider-vinegar
until a paste is formed, and apply.
Turn your sheep in your stubble fields,
as they do splendid there if not le't on
after the feed is gone.
Grub in the head is caused by the
striped gad fly, ((A'sriV vis), depositing
its egg in tho nostril of the sheep during
July and August, which hatches in a
few' days and crawls up into the head of
the sheep, and there generally does no
harm, though sometimes when it conies

The iHiet s.iys, "Man wants but little
here below, nor wants that little long,"
and if you do not adopt this motto in
your notions of caring fur your sheep,
ilo not blame any one but yourself if
you fail, or if the sheep die with grub,
dogs, cholrra, or the dozen other ene
mies of the sheep. Once upon a time a

A Lover's iteveiige,
M. Francisque Sarceyhas just favored
the readers of tho A7.'e Sirrlr. w ith a
dissertation on tlio delicate subject of
professional secrecy, and tho obligation
It sometimes Imposes of telling a lie.
The circumstances of a case cited by
him in which Iho seal of secrecy was
broken are of a very dramatic character.
A lady whoso daughter Was about to bo
married having acquired a suspicion
that tlio Btilcceilcnts of Iho tianco were
not of the most desirable character
that he had, In fact, undermined hiscoti
stitiilioti by early dissipation Called
upon his medical adviser. Doctor Del
pi eh, one of the hinst distinguished pro
fessors of tlio Muntpellier faculty of
medicine, confided Iter suspicions to
him, and asked if they were well
founded. The doctor fenced with tin
question ns well ns he could, and tried
to avoid giving a direct answer. The
lady insisted. "I do not address you as
a professional man," she said, "but lack
you, as a father of a family, would you
give your daughter to this voting mini?"
Overcome by this nppeaf, the doctor
gave a reluctant answer in the negative,
and tlio marriage w as broken oil'. Some
days afterward tho carriage in which
Ihe doctor used to drive to his class
came to a stand before the door of the
medical school, but wit liont either Ihe
physician or tho coachman, who wore
both found lying dead on tho road at
some distance, each with a bullet lodged
in a vital part. Tho circumstances of
the murder wero shrouded in mystery
for a time; but eventually the dead
body of a young man, who had blown
his drains out, was found hing in a
room tlio windows of which looked on
Hie scene of tho assassination. It was
the hotly of Ihe young man whom Dr.
Delpech said he would not accept ns a
son-in-law: and there could, of course
lie no reasonable doubt that he was the
assassin. ,s'(. James' Ouidtf.
