Tbo following is an extract from a recent
letter-written by Senator Sherman: "I
bave always favored the raoBt liberal laws
for women's rights, to far aa property is
concerned. In these respeots they ought
to stand on tbe same footing as men; but I

would be improved by their having fho

When two weak-minded persons marry,
the result is unything than a pleasant
household. A sad caso of suicide near
New York city, tbe other day, presents a
sad illustration. Tbe wife of tbe unfortu
nate suicide bad a sister rosiding in tho
same town with 'herself, who was married
to a woll-to-do merchant, and who lived
befitting her means. This was a source of
bitter rellootions to the les fortiinato one,
who was constantly wanting to know of
her husband why it was she could not live
in as good style as her sister. And he
weak msn, to gratify her, involved himself
beyond bis means and was, in consequence
continually In pecuniary hot water. Ho
had npt the strength of will to bear irp
against his wife's extravagances nnd his
own business embarraemenla, und so took
bis own life. Frivolous spendthrifts, who"
don't earn the money they squander, little
know tbe bear - ches they caused to those
who are charged with their support. And

Lyon Berners remained walking up and
down tbe room Borne time longer. Tne
lights were all out, and the servants gone
to bed. Vet still he continued to pace up
aid down the parlor floor, until suddenly
piejeiog shrieks smote his ear.
In great terror be started forward and
instinctively rushed towards Kosa 'a room,
when the doer was suddenly th:ow open by
Kosa herself, pale, bleeding from a wound
in her breast.
"Great Heaven! What is this?'- he
cried, as, aghast with amazement and 8or -
row, be supported the ghastly and dying
torm, ana laid it on the sou, and then sunk
on his knees beside it.
"Who, who has dono this?" be wildly
demanded, us, almost paralized with hor
ror, he knelt beside her. unj tried to Blench
tbe gushing wound from which btr life
blood was fait welling.
Shn o eied her bloodless lips, now paling
in death, nnd gasped forth the words:
"She Sybil your wife. I told you she
would do it, and she has done it rrvhil

Then raising herself with a list dying
effort, she erie4 aloud. "Hear, all! Sybil
Renters has murdered me. " And tritli this
charge upon ber lips, sbefell back dead.
ttven in toat supreme moment Lyon JSer-

was for bis wife. He looked up to see who

O, wretdfced woman! most wretched
woman! What is this that you bave done!
groaned Lyon-Berners in unutterable agony
agony not ifr the dead bounty before bim,
but for the tiling wifu, whom he felt that
he bad driven to this deed of depredation.
' Lyon lSersirs, do you believe me guil
ty r she asked.
He looked up, nnd (heir eyes mot. If he
had really believed her guilty, be did not
now. Ho ans tered briefly and firmly.
"No, Sybil! i Heaven knows that I do
not;but explain this honblo business if
I you can!
"Ibe explanation is tiU" shn said,
emphatically. And then her voice urnse
clear, firm, und distinct, as she cuntinued:
'1 was in my chain for. which is imme

up from Mrs. BlouJelk's r ooh. I do not
know how long I had sit llioro, when 1
heard a piercing shriek l'roin souih one in

down the -coininiu'eaiing slab's und into

"Good Ilcavensl that lady's mistaken

lowed tbe murderer to escape. But II may
not yet be too late! Some clue may be
left in ber room by wjilch we may trace

search the premises."
And Lyon Herners, leavlne tMe shudder
ing women of tbe party in the .room with
Sybil and the dead, and followed by all
tbe men, went to search the bouse and
grounds for traces of the asnastin.
Hut the search proved fruitless. No trace
of an Intruder could be found, nor was there
any evidence of robbery. Furthermore, all
the windows.wero round fastened on tbe in
side. There had been Do way of entering
the murdered woman's room except by the
stairway leading from Sybil s chamber.
Captain Pendleton, an old lover of Sybil's
and a brother of Beatrix, saw that thero
was no safetv except in instant flight. Ho
whispered Lyon to take Sybil to her room,
nnd tbeo to meet him on the back pin?.
This was done, and then the captain unfold
ed bis already matured plans, l.jon adop
ted them at once; nnd under the skilllul
management of Capinin Pendleton and Bea
trix, they got out of tb house unseen, and
were soon on their way towards a tdncn of
concealment, known as tho Haunted Chap
el, where new and unexpected horrois await
TUB HAUNTED niAI-EI..
The Haunted Chapel to which Mr. nnd
Berners were goins was in a dark and
gorge on the other sne of tbe inotin.
y arrived, safely at tho old ruin, where
course of the day they were joined

ble. , , The. fne-ilivos lelt so -depressed, that even
the cheerful supper supplied by Joe could
not relieve them of t ie overshadowing t;luuni
which had seitled on llieir hearts. A
strnnge drowsiness soon oppivssvil them, nnd
they sunk into a deep sleep, as HiourIi they
had I een drugged with some powerlul nar
cotic. -Mr. Berners was aroused before day
HkIii by Joe, who instantly drew hi in out
side the chapel in alarm. "
Sybil, lelt alone, in tin- II muted Chil,
continued to sleep soundly. How lotm sue
bad slept she never could tell, when she was
sdddenly and feail'ully aroused.

The iron door clanged loudly to, ressund
ing through ihe dismal urches.
'We have ber now!" mtitterAl a hoarse
voice. A hollow laugh resnotuled.
And Sybil swooned with horror.
When Sybil recovered from ber death-like
swoon, she found herself in a spacious oav
ern ot snob exceeding beauty and splendor
that for on instant sbo lost siirht of her ter
rors in bir astonishment nnd admiration,
und then her eyes set upon a ligitro who
seemed to be tbe solo occupaut oi ihe place.
This was a young girl, who, with her red
cloak thrown mat-like on the mos?, was
seated upon it cross-legged in the Turkish
fashion. Her elfin face, her inulien eyes,
ber wild, black hair and picturesqiio cos
tume, were all 83 in keeping with the ns
poet of the place, that one might bave deem
ed her the spirit of tbe cavern.
The two women looked at each other In
silence for perhaps half a minute; and then
"What place is this? Who are you?
W hy am I brought hither?-'
"One question at a timo," answered the
girl. "What placo this is coneerns von lit.

conoerns you very much ! It oonoeruti your

"I do not believe it! You bnvn had me

And tbe robber captain stood among

Moloch dropped Sybil, and cowered In
the most abject manner.
Sybil looked tip, and turned cold Irom
head to foot; for In the hands.ime, stately,

character of "Death," had danced with . her
