George Buchanan left here Sundav after

was only 31,000,000 down, yet the area
ot country sold was larger thaa sme of

.tbc King of Spain conveyed this tract of
country to tae anceitry of Doa Antoaio

keep Lizzie from going."
Bat to keep Lizziu from going would
not be so ca.y. What excuse was there
to mako to her cousin for wishing ber to
absent hersell from the merry-making?
A sudden thought occurred to Phoebe.
It was a fearfully mean one. She could
hide Lizzie's shoes. At that moment
Lizzio had jttst one pair besides her slip
pers, and her foot was so small that she
conld pot wear those of any other mem
ber of the family.
There would" not be time to bny a
pair, for they were miles from town,
and the general store onlv dealt in
rough boo'ts that Lfi.ie conld not wear.
"Yes"Phcebesaidto herself, "that
would keep her at home."
She crept into lizzie's room, and saw
the shoes-, with their tops turned over,
set upon the window-silL Xothing
could have favored Pha-be's plan better.
Some tramp would bo supposed to have
stolen then,. She whisked them away
in an instant, and. hiding them under
her apron, carried them to her own
room, and hid them at. the bottom of
"All U fair in love as in war," she
said to herself ; but, after all, it was not
love for the man. though sho thought
him handsome, as much as love for his
estates. Pha-be was very ambitions,
and she was poor, living with her annt
and obliged to take everything from her
hands. There was, perhaps, some ex
cuse for Iter wishing to marry well.
Down in the dining room "Lizzie was
laughing over the picnic She, too,
hoped to have Burt Williams at her side
all dav. and she had really given her
heart to him. It would have made no
difference to her if be had been a poor

with the greatest fortune in the connty.
She thought he loved her sometimes ;
still Phrcbe tried hard to cnt her out.
and Pbcebe was prettier than she was ;
she knew it.
"He would show his preference to

this occasion she would jtldgo of his
heart. "If he likes l'hcebe best. I will

yourselves, and pa can drive you over;
ami take wrap, for it is sure to be
chilly after dark; and don't sit down

And don't stand in the sun."
But the girls were oft before she had
done speaking, and in a few moments
Lizzie- was heard to cry. in a ne.in
cboly wy. from the head of the Swrs:
"Oh. ma! I can't find my shoes."
Pho?be heard, and laughed. The

and dyeing' scarlet, was up to that time:
unknown in England. Except by burg
lary, it is absolutely impossible to ob
tain a scrap of the beautifully water
marked i-apcrproduced at the mill at
Larcrstokc. Every piece of this paper
is registered before it is removed from
the frame, an account is kept by a
locked dial, and every damaged note i
accounted for before being ground up
again into pulp. Mr. Portal's papei
has a potential value, quite apart from
its worta. merely as paper, for It bar
always been regarded as so essential to
a passable forgery that the world al
large felt perfectly easy regarding' any
attempts to impose on them through
the medium of the Bank of England.,
This papc it is. perhaps, necdkss to

device is obtained, as all water BHtrkx
are, by twistiur wires to the desired

the mould, so that when the palp scales
down, it must of necessity be thinner on
the wire design than on the other parts
of the sheet. The water Is then per
mitted to run through thesierc-likc tact
of tho mould, and tho sheet of paper in

The largest amount of a bank note In
circulation in 1827 was one thousand
pound. It is ssid that two Botes for
one hundred thousand pounds each and
two for fifty .thousand pounds each
were once engraved and issued. A
butcher, who had amazed an immense e
fortune in the war times, weatoae day
with one of these fifty thousand poond
notes to a private -"taker, asking for
the loan of five thousand pounds, and
wL-hinT to der.osit the bhr Bote as
security in the banker's hands, saying
he had kept it lor voars. ane nve
thousand pounds was handed over, but
the banker hinted, at the same time, tc
the butcher tlie folly of hoardiagsach
sum and losing the interest.
"Wery true, sir," replied the butcher,
"but I likes to look on't so wery well
that I have t'other ono of the same kind

London framed a bank-post bill for
thirty thousand pounds and exhibited
it for years in one of hw sitting rooms.
