Tho only way to revive trotting in Now
York is to Imitato tho running raco-courso.
Only a fortnight ago the drivers on ono of
tho Eastern Circuit tracks Hartford, I think,
gave up driving in overalls and donnod regu
lar costumes. The change was a succoss. A
still hotter ono would be to drop boat races
ami arlnnt dashes at different distances. Mr.
Itobert Bonner, Johnny Murphy, li. U. nurd.
Hiram Smith and others say dashes would
havo a bad offoct on tho brood of trotters.
Thoy surely wouldn't think a horso a poor
one that could trot two miles in 5 minutes, or
even in B. 14, as Mr. Qrosscup's cross-matched
team did soveral years ago. Thero could be
milo, milo and a half and three and
four or even five-mile trotting races, which
would draw immenso crowds, bo finished
earlier and pay better than these wearysomo
hoot races. Another good thing for the trot

of what I coucoived to bo cerobrufdisordcr
had mado themselves felt. They took tho
form of what wo coll familiarly l absenco of
mind,' though thoy wero not fits of ab
straction, but rather moments of blank un
consciousness. Tho first attack was about
six weeks previous to our breaking up. I
was out walking and studying in Marx's
Grove. It was jiut 'J o'clock, for I was in tho
act of putting my watch in my pocket,
when an awful sensation crept over mo
of moral fear. Somethiug was taking placo
in my body which mado my soul bhud
der, but which affected nouo of my brtiscs. I
was conscious, to speak properly, but was
devoid of physical sensation. And I wns
conbeious that consciousness was leaving mo.
It is cry difficult to mnKb you underMaud by
words the e-act psychical condition which
ensued. My reason went out, if you will al
low mo to uso the expression. I stood thoro
in tho wood transfixed with horror, apd a
vain struggle of tho will tore mo at tho sanio
time. All knowledgo of events nml of tho
external world passed away, and nothing re
mained but tho cloudy cogitation of my
condition. I know now that I kept
saying over to myself, with a gasp
ing, automatio fierceness, as if to preserve
my senso of identity. 'Hero I nm, walking
between these trees. Hero I nm, hero I am.'
But It availed nothing. A blank supervened,
in which thero woro dim, fitful gleams of
something having gouo from me- forever.
When I recovered myself, I looked about
and tried to recall how I got tlieie. It wns
somo moments beforo my mind recovered its
normnl action. This, then, I said to mysef , is
incipient idiocy. No one can understand tho

" When I came to tho city I lived at my
annt's house. Sho wos still a rather gay society
woman, and I was thrown into a fashionable
circle, which, although distasteful to me,
helped to wpan me from my melancholy in
trospection. It wos during this interval of
social relaxation that I discovered how frivo
lous ond hollow Miss Featherstonaugh waa.
I think we felt a deep contempt for each
othor beforo I had been thore a week. But
wo both concealed it for tiolitio reasons.
" Thero was in my aunt's house a girl em

healthy country girl, with red cheeks and
round, dimpled arms, ond a hearty laugh that
rang through the mansion and had o straugo
charm for mo. Owing to her own cleverness
and honesty, as much as to my aunt's need of
such a perbon, sho became the housekeeper.
Her namo was Judy, but that atrocity bad
lcen softened into Ju, and it was only as Ju
that I know her for a long time. From tho
moment that I becamo an inmate of tho place
this girl attached herself to me with a perti
nacious devotion that was remarkable. Under
stand mo, it was tho modest, respectful at
tachment of a sincere friend. Sho appeared
to corapcrhend by some instinct of her own,
and almost immediately, tho exact discrep
ancy that existed between myself nnd the
peoplo around me, and she managed the af
fairs of tho houso in such a manner that my
tastes wcro quiotly consulted and many of
my whims gratified. ,
" Tho girl kept out of my sight as much as
possible, but she exerted an influence over

Featherstonaugh. My aunt went off to Cape) H
May, where I promised to join her later lit JSH
the season, ana I flung myself into the rays H
tcries of the law. No sooner had I recow, aVB
