tastic motions on tho lca os ot my books iu

thosu set m'.tho human head, and they burned
with a ftarful luslro. It was about ten
luihos in length, and of i dull brown color,
hi ono of itb foot was clasped a pun. I drow
nearer, to observe its motions. It movod up
und down long columns of llguics with tho
rapidity of lightning, aud at tho bottom it
wrote willi absolute accuracy thu sum totul.
Tho most remarkable part of it wus
that it discovered nn error that I had
vainly sought all tho afternoon. Finally,
it seizod paper and euolopo and wroto a
note, calling my attention lo tho fact that
tlio discrepancy that had worried me was
now mode plain. This btrungo liibocl then
unfolded its wiugs and disappeared from mv

next morning, I, ot courso, discovered noth.

black hair and heavy black mustache, fash
ionably dressed, on tho corner of Centroand

arose, aud I shot him iu thu nock. Somo of

next morning about 10 o'clock, as I was turn

covered his neck with his hand,
and said ' ' For God's sako, don't
shoot mo .'" We woro both too much shocked
to spoak for somo moments. Explanations
followed. Wo had both dreamed the sumo

extent of tho tranquility enjoyed by her co.
This youug lady wai tho daughter of a very
wicked father. Ho boro tho reputation of
being tho wickedest man in Steoltou. To the
good people of tha puritanic spirit ho was
known as " Wicked John."
This most wicked man was converted, and
to n church of tho most pronounced ortho
doxy. Ho joined the Church of God com
posed of a sect of tho Duukard order, and
became as intensely good as he was beforo
Then ho exhorted his two daughters to
join, and after u supreme effort got them
within the t fold. A week ago Friday night
both " received tho blessing. "
A few minutes thereafter Lillio, the younger
one, fell into a tinnce. Her eyes became
fixed and her form as rigid as though in death.
As this condition is a common one among
" mourners " when they icceive tho blessing
iu the Church of God, nothing was thought
of it. Sho remained in tho franco so long,
however, that she was carried to John Par
