The history of Edgar Allen Pou N no
of thn saddest and darkest ever told. His
parents were tlieatiical performers who
died early, and left three children, of whom
ho was one In utter destitution. He was
1 mm in llaltimorc in January, 1811, and
after tlio death of his jiaicmU, was adopted
by Mr, John Allen, a licit merchant, who
intended to mako him his lteir. Mr. and
Mrs. Allen took him with them on a vilt
lo Knglaud, and for several ycain he went
to school at Stoko Xettington, near Lon
don. On Mr. Allen's return to Ameiica he
was sent to tlio Uniteillv at Cluuiotts
ille. He there begun his fatal course of dissi
pation, and went to such deplorable ex
tremes in vice, that, although n brilliant
scholar, he was expelled from the Univer
sity. Ho then went to Kuropp, was guilty
of such drunken follies in St. Petersburg,
that thn police apprehended him, and it
needed all the inlltience of the Amei lean
Ambassador to save him from tin; penal
consequences of his misdeeds. On Ids re
turn to Ameiica. Udgar Allen Poe was for
git en by .Mr. Allen, who procured his ad
mission into the Milllnry Academy, but
although popular with ids mess, he jieiiled
so completely to his lotc of wine thai ho
was dismissed from the Academy in dis
grace. Once moro Mr. Allen, now a wid
otter, forgave lilin, but Poo bcluned so dis
gracefully that he was expelled from Air.
Allen's house, who, when he died, did not
leate him a dollar. ,
Poetry had bv lids time Uinm to hate
some charms for him, and i.-m '"'
small volume. i-oiitalulnrrrneTit hlspucms.
Tlmt he was u pint none can doubt. Just
lKten to a stanza taken from "The Hells:"
Hear thn mellow wedding bells,
'. - Golden bells: tlellsl
"What a ivoilil ot liiiopliiens tin fr harmony fori'
Throiigli the balmy air of night
How they ring out their delight,
Prom the molten golden notes,
And all In tune.
What a liquid illtlj lloats
Tietlie tm lie dove that ll-tens, while she gliwls
On Die moon I
Oh, rrom out the sounding cells,
What a gush cf euphony voluminously wells!
How It sttells;
Row It dwells
On the Vutuie; how It tells
Of Hie rapture that Impels
To the swinging and the ringing
Of the bells, bells, bells.
t, One of his biographers, writing of lihu ut
this peiiod, gives a deplorable nccnunt of
his appearance, and i elates the kindness of
Mr. Kennedy, a literary gentleman, to him.
"Thin and pale even to ghustlinivs, his
whole nppearame indicated sickness and
tho' utmost destitution. A well-worn flock
coat concealed the absence of u shiit. and
imperfect boots disclosed the want of hose.
Hut the eves of the young man were lumin
ous with Intelligence nnd feeling, and Ids
voice and conversation and m timers all
won upon the lawyer's regard. Poe told
his history anil his ambition, and it was tie
tcrinlned that he-should not want menus for
a suitable appearance in society, nor op
portunity for a just display of liis abilities
Mr. Kennedy accompanied him to a
clothing btoic, and purchased for him a re
spectable suit, with changes of linen and
sent him to a bath, from which he leturned
with tho suddenly regained style of a gen
tletmiu. His new friends were very kind
to him, and availed themselves of oven op
poituuity to serve him. Through their ef.
toils, ho obtained the editorship of a maga
zine published at Richmond Va., to which
ho contiibiited numerous articles; but after
tlio lapse of n few mouths, his old habits
of dissipation began to show themscltes,
and for a week he was in a condition of
luutlsh drunl;eniRv-s which led to Ids dis
missal. Udgar Allen Poo had friends who warned
him of his folly, and urged him to abstain
from "wino and strong drink," Seldom
have we read a wiser, kinder, more forci
ble letter than one which is given in an
American sketch of Ills llfo. The writer,
-Mr, White, who was then his literary em
ployer, thus wroto to htm:
''I cannot address you in such language
ns this occasion and my feelings demand;
I must be content to speak to you in mv
plain way. That you aro sincere lu all
your promises, I firmly believe; but t hen
you once again tread these streets, I have
my fears that your resolutions will fall, and
that you will agiiln drink till your senses
aro lo(.t. I f you rely on your strength, you
are gone. Unless you look to your Maker
for helii you will not Ik) safe. How much
I legicted parting from you, is known to
Him only and myself. 1 had become at

ingly say return, did not a knowledge of
your imt llfu make me dread a speedy re
newal of our separation. If you would
make yourself contented with quartern In
my houso or with any oilier private family,
wntre llijuor t not ututl, 1 should think there
was soino hope for you; but, if you go to a
tnrern or at tiny place where tt it wed at
UMe yon are not mfe. You have fine tal

Mile and Mile eoiiijumlons forercr. Tell,
ino If you can and will do so. If you again
become an assistant In my olllce, ll must lie
under f ood that all engagements on my part
cease tho moment you get drunk."
Tills was tho counsel of a true friend,
but Kdgar Allen Poo did not adopt It a9
the rule of his life.
About 18117 ho married a lovely girl, but
tills event failed to reform him. He con.
tinned to drink, gamble and even swindle
people out of money for vicious purposes,
and when his young wife died she was re
leased from it world of darkness, sin and
In 18 U Poo went to Xetv York, and
tin-in published his wonderful poem 'The

Kdgiir Allen Poe once more fell in love,
at least so lie said. His hand was offered
to a literary lady of brilliant talents and
spotless name, and, hating been accepted
it wiu announced that tho marriage would
soon tnke place. Jt was or this lady lie
wrote thu following lines:
"Clad all In white, iqioii a violet bank

Hut they were never mauled, for on the
night beriuu the bridal he went to the
house of lus betrothed in such a state of
wild and savage drunkenness that he was
given in the custody of the police!
lie pursued his evil courses until, ntlast,
lie was destitute of money, food, home,
and almost naked. At Richmond he join
ed a "Temperance society," but did not
keep Ids pledge.
lie was on his way to Xetv Y'ork when
his final debauch came. His biographer
thus describes his fearful end.
'Ai i iving in Haltimoie, be gave ids trunk
to a poi ter, with directions to convey it to
the cars which wero to leave in an hour or
two for Philadelphia, and went into a tav
ern to obtain some refreshments.
Here he met acquaintances, who invited
him to drink; all bis resolutions and duties
weiesoon forgotten- in a few hours he
was in such a state as is commonly induced
only by long, continued intoxication. Af
ter a night of insanity and exposure, ho
was cairied to a hospital; and there, on the
evening of Sunday, thu 7th of Octolier,
18 ID, he died at the age of thirty-eight.'
Such tins the death of a genius who
might hate lived a glorious life and illum
ined the world witli the productions of his
gieat mind, but whom wino involved in
awful ruin and whoso name is now a bye
wind anil a reproach. Let young men
avoid the claret-jug and the champagne cup,
the brandy-Husk and the glass of bitter
beer. Faithful and heroic abstinence from
all intoxicating drinks will save them from
tlio terrible fate of Kdgar Allen Poe.

rcul Nniitv Hurricane out vm
Tlio storm came on, the lllth, as sudden
ly ns tho great hurricane of January. Tlio
sky grew pale, then darkened to nn omi
nous yellowish gray. The rnlti grew cold
er, then turned to sleet, then to snow, which
fell lightly till noon. Then tho wind
strengthened and shifted; by one o'clock
it was blowing half a gale from the north
west; half an hour laterlt wasaliitriicane,
blowing from the north.
As the wind grew stronger, the air Ik
came black w itii snow. I sav "black" ad
visedly, for no other word will adequately
express the Impression left by that storm.
1 he heavens were still a dome arched Upon
the reeling ring of the horizon, but the
canopy was no longer of steely blue nnd
silver. , It was a sky of tea-lead, bounded,
when one caught a glimpse of it, by a livid
ring. In the midst was an unnatural
smear of nebulous, white light. That was
the sun. Tho snow no longer fell in Hakes.
Iho little needles, which ut first had been
driven tingling against the 'ace nnd tink
lug uralnst the glass, had given place to
large, blotchy Hakes, which were not too
heavy to lie driven before the wind. Hut
these, in turn, had yielded to such gigantic
splaslies of snotv as may fall in the lealm
of Hrobdlngang. They were irregular
wreaths, patches and aggregations of snow,
which could bo fairly likened to nothing so
much as an atmosphere full of white lints
and cotton wool. These great winding
sheets of snow were taken by the wiml,
which was blowing, at the lowest estimate,
seventy miles an hour, sometimes attaining
a velocity of 100 miles.
At midday it was dark as Hgypt. The
few people who were caught out of doors
groped and guessed their dlllleult way
The man who held out his hand could not
see It at the length of his own arm. Huild
lugs were Invisible till one ran against
them, and looking up saw a graver shadow
in the gray storm.
The scene, however, which challenged
and compelled more imperatively than any
other, the observation of the correspondent,
was that of tlio camp where the cavalrv
had just begun to establish themselves,
having arrived on their wav to the plains,
where they are to protect tfie working par
ties on the Northern Pacific Railroad. The
camp arrangements had not been nearly
completed, when the storm burst upon the
canvas Hty ami in a moment reproduced in
miniature tlio ictieal from Moscow.
Those skty-slx bouts of storm, of sun
less day, starless night, nothing but driving
snow and howling wind, wei'e as long as
ages. Those who had at Hist realized the
danger of the hurricane, whose horses Wl.rt.
stabled mid who had sccuied piivate quar
ters, could form no idea of what their
comrades endured. The total loss of
the horses will probably foot up to 100
head. Hut for tlio good tortune by which
General Custar obtained a large stone store
wherein he stabled :!00 of the horses, his
command would hate been cntiuiv dis
mounted. The men suffered ns severely. The
tents were all blown down and torn, so
that they wero without shelter, nml food
they had none. It seemed impossible to
stay in the camp in that hurricane ; to leave
the camp was certain death. Some of tlio
men did not realize this, ami undertook to
reach the city trusting to the wind to guide
them, ignorant that the wind bad shitted
threacheroiisly and now blew from the
north. What became of these men, or
how many of them there were who thus
surrendered tlicir one chance of life, it is as
yet Impossible to say. The im,-tcr-till
shows that many aie missing.

far as loss of life is concerned it will lie

age, on the recommendation, ho alleges, of
"no less an authority than Prof. Huxley, ho
"began tho use of mild tobacco." and 'from
that day forward he has enjoyed good
health; is no longer troubled with his

foolishly gave Ui tho habit of smoking,"
for tho sake ot experiment, and denied
himself the uso of tobacco for two or three
