when my mental agitation had reached
a hizh decree. Mv wife had fallen
asleep, overcome with constant care
and watching. I was pacing the sit-'
ting room of our chamber about the
hour . of midnight, as was my habit. 1
Occasionally I reclined on a sofa, in the
hope of catching a slight respite from
the distress of my terrible hallucina
tion; but it was for a moment only.
I lay down again on the sofa. My
brain seemed whirling in a blaze of fire,
and I sprung up stricken with madness.
The horrible specter ' stood before me
ana mockea me with a fiendish grin of
derision. I grasped a heavy piece of
furniture and dashed at it with the fury
of a maniac The specter seemed pal
pable to the blow, and yielded. I saw
it vanish in darkness that spread be
fore me, and my tormenting second self
was gone. I broke forth in frantic
laughter, that returned in a hundred
echoes around me, and sank exhausted,
unconscious, to the floor.
The morning sun was shining in npon
me when I awoke to returning con
sciousness. A cool perspiration oozed
from my forehead. I rose on my elbow
and for some moments endeavored to
recall my identity and the recollections
of ' the night. Great heavens! it was
she! . It was my poor, devoted wife
the reality of the form I had dashed
down and destroyed in my frenzy!
Overwhelmed with remorse, I rushed
wildly from the house and fled I knew
not whither. The greater grief that
had come upon me reanimated my
mental power, and I became calm in
despair: but I shrank cowardly from
the desolation that my own hand bad
It was some weeks after the dreadful
night I have described that I reached
New York City without detection, a
greater portion of the distance working
as one of the crew of a canal-boat. I
wandered along the wharves of the me
tropolis, searching anxiously for some
means of . escaping the country, and
longing even to flee the fellowship of
civilized man. The opportunity was
finally discovered in a ship about sail
ing around Cape Horn for the Pacific
Coast, on board of which my services
were accepted in a menial capacityr
I was soon safe from discovery and
pursuit, and free upon the boundless
waters free as one could feel with the
remorse of a hellish deed upon his soul,
and the abandonment of all hope of a
happy hour in life again.
I need not describe the experience of
a loner and tedious sea-voTaere. and the
hardships and indignities put upon me
in consequence of inefficiency and total
ignorance of a seaman's duties. To me
it was ot little account. But the change
of life and soene and the sea air had a
wonderful effect in repairing my men
tal and physical strength. It was on
a bright September morning that 1
spied the hazy shores of California, and
in a day or. two thereafter sauntered
along the streets of San Francisco,
alone in a new world, with only the
companionship of bitter recollections.
As necessity required I sought em
ployment, and managed to sustain my
self, leading a listless, purposeless sort
of life. Bat the monotony soon became
oppressive, and the apprehension of
ultimate discovery excited renewed
anxiety. Frequently I fanciod the recoer-
nition of a familiar countenance on the
streets, that kept me in painful uncer
tainty. - .
The day came in which my worst
fears were realized. The miserable
wretch in whose house I was sojourn
ing delivered me into the hands of jus
tice. By what means he discovered my
identity I could not determine; but I
met my fate boldly; for remorse had so
far embittered my existence that I dis-
aainea longer to struggle lor its con
tinuance. - - -
"Gentlemen," I exclaimed, as the
officers inclosed my wrists with iron
shackles, take your accursed reward!
I am Charles Harden, the murderer.
They dragged me to the prison, and
the officers of the law came and ques
tioned me. I told them all, and they
transferred me to more secure confine
ment, lest I should escape again the
retribution of crime.
Long I lingered in the solitude of a
gloomy cell, awaiting the final decree
of fate, until calm indifference succeed
ed despair, and gradually every emo
tion, even like itself, seemed to subside
into a dream. " :
Bat a day came when my sensibili
ties ' seemed . reanimating, like one
emerging from a trance. Slowly my
mind manifested activity, and in time
I recalled my identity; then suddenly
the recollection of my whole life flooded
back upon me, and all the weight of its
great , burden of remorse again de
scended. An old man, whose kindly counte
nance had become familiar to me, as in
a vision, appeared and sought to rally
my despondency with words of hope
"You have had a long, bad spell.
Harden," he remarked, ' bat you are
coming around all right now, and will
soon be out in the world again."
. Then I was not in prison, but an in
sane asylum. Thank heaven, my
wretched guilt had not been discovered.
And then I learned from the old man
the circumstances of my arrest as a lu
natic and the nature of my affliction.
In the operation of trepanning at the
hands of unskilled surgeons a small
splinter of the fractured skull had been
left adhering in a position to irritate
the membrane of the brain, and this
trifling oversight had caused the insan

blast the happiness of my life forever.
and stamp my memory with the igno
miny of murder.
The derangement had been effective

the asylum, and my mind now rapidly
recovered its original power. Bat what
availed it, 1 reflected bitterly; and why
had I been restored from peaceful lu
nacy to a consciousness to which death
would be a relief t

The last great hallucination was dis

over me those long and wretched years.
I laughed and wept by tarns. And

could be packed was occupied. Even
the remaining wing of the temporary

clear. That was lined by a double row
of stalwart policemen, stationed about
six feet apart, and nobody was allowed
to pass them. Another force of re

and a tiger were given for him over
and over again. Ennis was the favor

Rowell was not forgotten. The two

kept on for a few steps further. Until he

his 450th mile. Rowell stepped ahead

rang with such a hearty, spontaneous.

was Ennis, who carried a third floral

unexpectedly appeared, a few minutes
later, his face aglow and his eyes glit
tering with excitement and gratifica
tion forging along at an astonishingly
rapid gait. Across his body hung a
iri-coioreu. siik scan, decorated with
flattering ribbons. A second time he
came around, this time bearing over
his shoulder a large American nag.
Rowell and Ennis trudged gayly be
hind him, like well drilled recruits.
The rafters fairly shook with applause,
the surplus enthusiasm finding vent in
a furious whirling of hats and canes
and Bhaking of handkerchiefs. A third
time Harriman appeared, bowing and
shaking hands on every side as he
passed, and once more the roar swelled
to a deafening pitch. At 8:45:40 he re

clasped them around it, and although
it was nearly as big as himself, bore it
off laughingly, it would be useless
to attempt to describe the noise
and ' excitement which these last
events created, ending in a circling
roar of laughter as the champion
and his unwieldy prize appeared in
sight. Had one of the Americans
been the victor the enthusiasm
could scarce have been more intense
and hearty. In fact, the yelling, cheer
ing, and waving of handkerchiefs had
not ceased for an appreciable moment
for two hoors and over.- Nor were
they ended now. Rowell reappeared
from his cottage in a few moments clad
in an ulster and carrying a large Amer

Confederate Hard Money.
It has been believed and recorded as
an historical fact that the Southern
Confederacy had no metallic currency.
After a lapse of eighteen years, evi
dence now presents itself to show that
four coins were struck on at the JNew
Orleans Mint while that place was in
the possession of the Confederate Gov
ernment. This discovery has been
brought about by a Record item, enti
tled A Craze for Coins," which gave
the fancy prices placed upon rare
A few days subsequent to the publi
cation, Mr. Mason, the numismatist, of
143 North Tenth street, who was inci
dentally referred to in the article, re
ceived a communication irom a. r .
Tavlor. M. D., the Secretary and Treas
nrer of the Louisiana State Board of
Health, giving the information that he
had a Confederate coin in his posses
sion. In reply, Mr. Mason wrote for a
lead pencil rubbing ol the piece, at tne
same time expressing a doubt as to the
existence of any genuine coins of the
Confederate States. The return mail

The obverse represents a Liberty
cap, above the American shield, the
union of the latter containing seven
stars, representing the seven seceding
States, the whole being surrounded
with a wreath of sugar cane and cotton
in bloom and the motto Confederate
States of America." The reverse has

which the Confederacy sprang, and the
The history of the coin may be briefly
recapitulated from Mr. Taylor's state
ment. When the New Orleans Mint
was takon popnusoion of by tho Confed
erates in April. 1861, the original dies
of the United States were canceled in
the presence of the officials connected
with the building. The Confederate
Cabinet, which was then sitting at
Montgomery, issued orders for a de
sign for a Confederate currency to Mr,
Taylor, who was then Chief Coiner of
the Mint. The above design was sub
mitted and approved, and orders were
issued for the striking off of specimen
pieces. Four half-dollars were accord
ingly coined, and these also, following
the design, were approved by the Cab
inet. Then came an obstacle That
body found that it had not control of
sufficient bullion to proceed with an is
sue of coins, and, consequently, the
matter was deferred, and a temporary
issue of paper money uecided upon.
The subsequent rout of the Confeder
ates threw the coinage project over
Of the tour coins struck, one is in the
possession of one of the chiefs of the
Confederate Government, the second
was presented to Professor Biddle, of
the University of Louisiana; the third
to Dr. Ames, of New Orleans, and the
fourth was retained by Chief Coiner
Taylor, by permission of the Cabinet.
ft is a noteworthy fact that all the in
dividuals who were connected with the
coinage, including the Superintendent
of the Mint, Assayer, (Joiner, tn graver.
Die Sinker, down to the man who held
the chisel and used the hammer, in the
cancelling of the old and new dies, are
living at the present time To Mr.
Mason, in whose hands the coin has
been placed, quite a number of bids
have been made by numismatic and his
torical societies for the purchase of this
rare relic of the rebellion.

The look of disgust that spread over

with the prevalent idea that tramps

The Comstock Mines.
A Nevada newspaper, referring to
the cross-cuts in progress on the Corn-
stock lode, expresses apprehension that
they may prove barren. It frankly says
that in that event it will be " good-bye.

it adds, " there is not a good body of ore
between the two thousand and twenty-
three hundred feet levels, there is cer
tainly nothing within three hundred
feet above, and there is nothing for the
same distance below. To do dead work
for two or three hundred more feet with
only a doubtful prospect would be im
possible. Assessments could not be
raised to do it. The expense of raising
useless stock to the surface, or even to
the line of the Sutro tunnel, coupled
with the strong probability of encoun
tering large bodies of water, and the
obstruction oflered by the intense heat
would render the work of prospecting
on uncertainties at sucn enormous
depths out of the question. The Com,

as long as the least, hope is held out of
gaining a prize in this, the most uncer
tain of all lotteries. There is one chance
in a million. Practically, there is no
chance at all.
The yield of these mines costs, on the
whole, far more than it is worth. A
few individuals amass great wealth.
but for the great mass of people there
is no profit nor anything but loss. The
same energy and capital directed in
other industries would bring far better
general results. The history of the
world shows that mines of gold and stl
ver have made no country rich. Oregon
has in her unfailing agricultural prod
ucts a source of wealth which she could
not afford to exchange for all the allur
ing and deceptive promises of bonanza
mines. It would be less matter if our
industry and business did not share
some degree of general demoralization
produced by feverish speculation in
this absurd lottery founded on the Corn-

through nearly all the currents of life on
the Pacific slope. Sacramento Record-
A Pleasant Perfume.
The only perfume which never seems
to onend any, and which leaves no un
pleasant tang behind it, is that of co
logne water, which stimulates while it
soothes the senses, and suggests a
pleasant wholesomeness instead of any
sickish sweetness, as the best of the ex
tracts and essences and boquets are apt
to do. We do not mean, of course, the
cheap and common cologne water of
the druggists, which is usually very
much worse than none at all, and wont
to leave, after drying, the smell of
burned sugar where it has been used
often, as it is made of the poorest spirit
and necessarily without subsequent dis
tillation, without regard to the fact that
it requires the strongest proof or recti
fied spirit to dissolve the combined oils
properly where the process oi distilla
tion is not used, indeed, with no
trouble at all, any one can make hi her
own store-room a better article of co
logne than that which is usually bought.
by thoroughly dissolving a fluid dram
of the oil of bergamot, orange and rose
mary each with half a dram of neroii
and a pint of rectified spirit. As good
as can be made out of cologne itself,
however, is also quite as comfortably
prepared at home as at the chemists
at so much less than the chemist's
prices that one feels warranted in using
it freely simply by mixing with one

each of the oils of bergamot and lemon
one of the oil of orange, and half as
much of that of rosemary, together
with three-quarters of a dram of neroii
and four drops each of the essences of
ambergris and musk. If this ij subse
quently distilled it makes what may be
called a perfect cologne, but it becomes
exceedingly fine by being kept tightly
stoppered for two or three months to
ripen and mellow before use iiarper
A Diphtheritic Worm.
Thk five-years-old daughter of Mrs.
Jennie Marsh, of Waverly, who is visit
ing friends in Elmira, was taken with
diphtheria shortly after her arrival here
last week, and is yet prostrate, but do
ing well. Yesterday morning the moth
er, looking in the child's throat, saw a
micrococcus moving. She took it and
another out. They are now at Flood
drugstore and can be seen by whoever
desires. They are easily seen by the
naked eye, though a glass helps one to
the " true inwardness " of the critters.
The largest one is fully one-quarter of
an inch long, covered with hair, with a
head something like a caterpillar, taper
ing body and long hairy tail, its body
is formed in rings. Its color about that
of one of those dark yellow " thousand
legged" worms found under old boards
and stones. The smaller one is about
one-sixteenth of an inch long, being
whitish in color, and requiring the glass
to bring out its beauty" of conforma
tion. It is not a pleasant thought to
imagine such things in your tnroat,
but they get there, and from there into
the blood, heart and other organs,
producing paralysis and sudden death
when least expected. They are vege
table parasites and exist in large colo
nics in the Jiphtheritic membrane. Dr.
J. M. Flood is considerably interested
in the mammoth bacteria that have
come under his observation, which
greatly exceed in size anything he ever
saw. If you have time' and tne incli
nation just step in and take a free look
at the menagerie Elmira Advertiser.

Evert housekeeper should have

Bostok Brown Bread. The ingre
dients are Indian meal, rye flour, com
mon molasses some cold water and
soda or baking powder. The meal
should be yellow and coarse Take
two-thirds meal and one-third rye flour.
It is a good plan to measure both into a
sieve and sift them thoroughly together,
as this insures thorough mixing, which
is very important, four into the mix,
ing-bowl a cup of molasses and three
cups of water. When measuring the
molasses do not fill the cop to the
brim, but let each cop of water run
over a little. Stir the molasses and
water till well mixed, and then slowly
add the meal and rye If baking pow
der is used, it should be mixed with the
meal one teaspoonful of powder to
one quart of meal. If soda is used, dis
solve one teaspoonful in a very little
water before enough meal has been
stirred in to make it stiff. To bake it
properly requires two iron basins
equal size, capable of holding a couple
of quarts apiece Pour the dough into
one basin and invert the other over it.
When the dough is just right, neither
too stiff nor too soft, it will settle grad
ually into the basin without the aid of
the spoon. Bake one hour and a half
in a steady oven. When it is taken
out leave it for a few minutes not
more than ten in the basin, still cov
ered. Then take it out and cover with
a cloth. Be careful not to set where
the wind will blow upon it, or in
strong draft while cooling, as either
may cause it to fall.
' Brilliant Whitewash. Take half
a bushel of good unslaked lime and
slake it with boiling water, covering it
during the process to keep in the
steam: strain the liauor through a fine
sieve or strainer and add to it a peck of
clean salt, previously dissolved
warm water, three pounds of ground
rice, ground to a thin paste and stirred
and boiled hot, half a pound of pow
dered Spanish whitening, and a pound
of clean glue, which had been previ
ously dissolved by first soaking it well
and then hanging it over a Blow fir in
a small kettle, within a larger one filled
with water; add five gallons of hot
water to the whole mixture; stir it well
and let it stand for a few days covered
from dirt. The whitewash should be
put on quite hot; for this purpose it can
be kept in a kettle on the stove. One
pint of this mixture will cover a square
yard of surface if properly applied.
Brushes more or less small may be used
according to the nature of the job re
quired. The wash retains its brilliancy
for many years. There is nothing of
the kind that will compare with it,
either for inside or outside walls.
The Girl Who Wants to Marry.
If a man has a right to marry, why
has not a woman? if a man may ask
woman to become his wife, why may
not a woman suggest to a man how
lovely it would be to become her hus
band? But nay. Society, by its usage
which Is stronger than written law.
says that such a proceeding is objec
tionable, and that lovely woman must
not practice it. We bow to the dictate
of society' 8 usage, and the woman who
rebels against it is voted rude, forward
and unwomanly. And yet the honest
desire for a companion and partner for
life is implanted in the feminine heart
as deeply as in that of the man. it does
not hnd expression in the same manner.
The woman who has reached maturity
without ever having had a desire to
marry, is either mentally or physically
imperfect, or else is, as it were, a
wooden doll, or a partially animated
piece of wax-works. She may pride
herself on what she thinks is her exces
sive modesty, but her ardent sister,
who honestly longs for a real and live
man to be her comfort for life, is just
as modest, and quite as sensible, it is
not always the case that the longing of
the girl who wants to marry assumes
the form of outward and verbal expres
sion. There are thousands of bashful
fellows who have had on their tongues
the propositions they would fain have
uttered, but were frightened by the fear
that the girls would refuse them, when
at the very time the dear creatures were
hoping and longing tor these same in
dividuals to give them an opportunity
But there are at least a thousand and
one ways in which a girl may with pro
priety communicate to almost any
bright young man her ideas concerning
him. These are not set down in the
guide books. They are not part of our
written literature. They come not by
rule and regulation. They are above
and beyond all these and responsible to
no law. Impossible though it be to de
fine them in words, the language of
love speaks them more plainly than
with cornet voice Hardly any young
man asking a young lady to marry him
ought to be refused. If he has all the
component elements of sound good
sense, he knows before he asks the
question what its answer will be. If
he is refused, it shows that he is
not quite as smart as he thought he
was. His defeat is mortifying. The
girl may have wanted marry, but he
was not the man of her choice She
will leave him to heal at his leisure the
wounds of his suffering heart, while she '
- . - i
taces ner chances that somebody else .
may oner who will prove to be more
acceptable The youth gains wisdom
by experience, and after his first grief
is assauged, which may possibly be not
very long, he Beeks permanent conso
lation in some other direction, this time
taking his steps with such careful cau
tion as to prevent him from repeating
the blunder. -
There are girls who start out in life
with an undefined idea that they will
marry somebody, and then keep look-
ng through the matrimonial market
just as they .', would look through the
stock of silks on the shopman's coun
ter. Taking down piece after piece
they find the shade of this too dark or
of that too light, or of the other not
exactly what they think it ought to be.
After patting tne salesmen to mucu
trouble they say they will call again,
and leave the place not knowing what
they want. So the girl who wants to
marry looks around to see what offers,
and finds that this man's beard is too
red, that one's eyes too blue, and the
other one's ears too long. She will
look a little farther. She examines all
that are in the market, and concludes
to look farther yet And when, after
having almost unconsciously become a
flirt, and having broken tne neans oi
half the young men in the neighbor
hood, she keeps on " looking a little
farther." She finds herself going
alone down the hill on the shady side
of the way, still with an indefinite long
ing to marry somebody, and wonder
ing who will come along to propose to
It would be rash to advise the young
lady to accept the first marrying man
who offers. It is equally rash to ad
vise her to wait, and wait; and keep on
waiting, and at last marry nobody.
Perhaps it is not necessary that all
should marry. Some of the - noblest
women in the world are what the world
calls old maids; yet that is a lonely
way of getting along. If the girl wants
to marry, the yeung men will find it
out. and her soul will look oat of the
widows of her eyes in an unmistakable
manner when the right man - comes
along. And all this without any lack
of modesty or breach of perfect de
corum on her part. Philadelphia Times.
