A Queer Discovery?A Mysterious
I Bullet.?A correspondent of the Toledo |
Blade, writing from Hastings, Mich.,
says: -'About ten miles South of this
place, a farmer, while driving some
cows through a deep forest adjoining his
fields, unexpectedly ? came upon an
unusually large buck stretched upon the
ground, and moaning away the last
moments of its existence. The ani?
mal was evidently very old, and in
sadly emaciated condition, so the
fact that the farmer immediately put
a bullet through its head should rather
be looked upon as an act of compas?
sion than otherwise. Just as he was
about to leave, he observed a round
lump upon the animal's side, wbioh so
attracted, his attention that he stopped to
examine it. Quickly discovering that
olose under the skin was deposited a
round, hard body, he used his knife,
and brought to light a silver bullet such
as was 'used in olden times for the en- I
closure of secret despatches. He car?
ried this curiosity to his house,
where, after considerable trouble, he
succeeded in opening it, and found
to Ids great surprise that it con?
tained a message written in cypher |
j upon paper attenuated to a high degree.
1 Otherwise than that the paper was j
slightly discolored (not sufficiently,
however, to obliterate the characters'.)
Neither the bullet nor what it enclosed
I bore any evidence of its late surround
1 ingi or of the strange vicissitudes
I through which it might previously have
gone. Several men of science have care?
fully inspected this relic of the past, and
are as mneh at a loss to decipher the
message as they are to satisfactorily ex
, pbuji when and how the bullet came to
be lodged in the side of the buck."

President Grant, last December, to im

to herself, she would try to bear it, but
that every morning, without an excep?

her four little children bad coine to her
with the tearful inquirv: "Will dear
papa come homo to-day?'' "This plea of

And when the fair one gives it, let it be
