DEVOTED TO POLITICS, MORALITY, URSAATIOY AND TO TVL GX.INLOI.

A large number of ship carpentere
have arrived in Lake Charles, La., from
New Orleans. A great deal of boat build
ing is in progress there.
The- Live Stock Journal learns that
the New Orleans, Chicago and St. Louis
railroad has erected a vast amount of
barbed wire fencing along its track in
Southern Mississippi and Louisiana, and
will soon have it all along the line, so as
to keep off stock from the track.
The Little Rock Gazette publishes
specifications of material and work i
required to build a hospital for the in
sane at Little Rock, Ark., from which it t
appears that the main building is inten- I
ded to be sixty-three feet front by one
hundred and four deep, and the wings
each one hundred and fifty-six feet long
and forty feet wide.

Austin, 10,960; D~allas, 10,358.
At Blackville, S. C., a correspondent 1
of the Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle and
Constitutionalist cays the So~lh Caroli
na railroad has built a shed 200 feet long C
and fifty feet wide, intended for a cotton N
market in the fall, and to store fertil- I
izers in the spring.
The sub-treasury at New Orleans has t
been notified from Washington of the
discovery of a counterfeit $10 gold coin,
an imitation of the New Orleans coin- r
age of twenty years ago. About ten
years ago a number of these counterfeits
were in circulation, but of late years
none have been seen.
The Houston (Texas) Post says that
Fort Worth has an artesian well 360

Charleston News and Courier; Tuition
at the South Carolina College is abso-a
Ittely free, except in the dlepartment of
literabure, where the students pay such
fees as may be agreedl on with the in
structors. The South Carolina College<
is emphatically a poor muan's college. It
is supported by tihe annual interest on
the invested proceeds of the sale of the]
agricultural land script given the State
by act of Congress. The whole fund
was. lost, but it wvas replaced by the
present State government, and the inter
est is regularly paidl. This interest main
tains the College at Columbia for whites,
and the Clafin University at Oratnge
burg, for colored persons only.
Judge A. S. Merrimon, having been
invitedl to address the prohibition conl
vention at Raleigh, N. C., respondedl in
an able, lucid and fervent speech, in the
course of which he said: All legislation
is a bundle of compromises. This bill
was not what many people wanted, but
seldom are statutes just what we wish.
Whatever else it may be, prohibition is
in it. The question must be discussed in
the light of reason, and it must be plain
ly discussed. But remember this: The
act prohibiting the sale of liquor is as
much a law as any on the statute book.
The Logislature does not ask thme people
to adopt or reject this act, hut only its
penal provision. It goes into full force
and effect on the first Monday of Octo
ber next. The county Commissioners
cannot issue a licence after that (late. It
is therefore idle to speak upon the stat
ute, for it is not a public question, beinig
already a law.

I do not know how much of this seiti
mont came from Katie's heart. She un
doubtedly indulged lofty ideas of atation
and style-for her education in the
duties and aims of life had been do
fielit, or rather erroneous; but that she
was capablo of deeper, better feelings
110110 doubted, 'who had over obtained
evenI a partial glimpse of her true wo
man 's nature.
And the time arrived at length, when
Ktie was to take that all importan__ t step
of which shte had1( often spokeni so lightly;
whten shte was toJ de'monstrate to her
l1riendts how muiich oif her heart was in
the wordls wVe have quloted.
At the enhanttting atge of eighteen she
had many suitors; but as she niever gave
a seious't thought to more than two, we
will follow her~ examlo, discarding all
except tho~se favored ones, and consider
their relative claims.

I shouJtld ctinitily use an artist's privi

two favored individuals. If I could have
my way, One should 1)0 a poor genius
andi somewhat of a hero; the other a
weatlthiy fool and somewhat of a knave.
But tihe truth is:
Ounr poor genius was not much of a
genmus, nor very poor, either. He was
bJy plrC5ofeso a teach)er of music, and ho
could live very comfortably in exercise
thereof--without tihe most distant hope,
however, of ever attaining to wealth.
Moreover, Frank Minot possessedl ex
cellent qualities, wvhich entitled him to
h)e called by discreet elderly p~eole a
"fine character;" by his companions a
"noblie, goodl fellow;" and by the ladies
generally a ''darling."
Katie could not help loving Mr. Frank,
and he knew it. lie was certain she
p~referred his society even to that of Mr.
Wellington, whom alone lhe saw fit to
honor with the a ppellation of a rival.
This Mr. Wellington (his companions
called him "dtuko") was 1no idiot or hump
back, as~ I could have wished him to be,
ini orIder toJ make a good story. On the
'ontrary, lhe was a man of sense, educa
tionh, good looks, andi fine manners; and
there wats no(thing of the knave about
him, that I could over assortain.
Besides this, his income was sufficient
to enable him to live superbly. Also he
was considered two or three degrees
handsomer than Mr. Frank Minot.
Therefore, tihe only thing on which
Frank had to depend was the pow'.r he
possessed over Katie's sympathies and
affections. The "duke"-although just
the man for her in every sense, being
blessed with a fortune, good looks, and
comimon sense--had never been ab~le to
diraw these out; and the amiably conlceitedl

She lay long upon the sofa, sobbing
and weeping passionately. Gradually
her grief appeared to exhaust itself.
Her breath came more regular and calm.
Her tears ceased to flow, and at length
her eyes and cheeks were dry. Her
head was pillowed on her arm, and her
face was half hidden in a flood of beauti
The struggle was over. The agony

enter, and arose cheerfully to receive
him. His manners pleased'her; his sta
tion and fortune fascinated her more.
He offered her his hand. She accepted
it. A kiss scaled the engagement-but
it was not such a kiss as Frank had given
her, and she could not repress a sigh.
There was a magnificent wedding.
Splendidly attired, dazzling the eye with
everything around in the atmosphere of
fairy lane, Katie gave her hand to the
man her ambition-not her love-had
But certainly ambition could not have
made a better choice. Already she saw
herself surrounded by a magnificent
court, of which she was the acknowl.
edged and admired queen. The favors
of fortune were showered upon her; sie
floated txrionaly npon the smooth and
glassy wave of a charmed life.
Nothing was wanted in the whole cir
cle of her outward existence. to adorn
it and make it bright with happiness.
But she was not long in discovering
that there was something wanting within
her own breast.
Her friends were numerous; her hus
band tendcr, kind andl loving; but all tihe
affetions sihe enjoyed could not fill her
She had once felt .its chords of symn
p~athy moved by a skillful touch; sihe had
known the heavenly charnm of their deep1,
dlelicious hiarmtony; and~ now they were
silent, motionless, muffled so to s1)eak
in silks and satins. These chords still and
soundl~less, her heart wa's deadl; not the
less so b'cauise it hatd beenm killed by a
golden shaft. Having known and felt
the life of sympathy in love, shte could
not but mourn for it, unconsoled by tihe
life of luxury. In short, Katie in time

"But it was wrong, sinful," Katie re
"Yes, I know it!" said her husb~and,
fiercely. "It is the evil fruit of an evil

me no share in sympathy--who devoted
me to the fate of a loving, unloved hums
