- HOW FELL LAID THE GHOST-
Nell Blake and I were just let loose
from school; and had we been let loose
from Bedlam, we could scarcely have been
more delighted,, and made a greater fuss
pon regaining our freedom. '
The city was stifling the streets dusty
and deserted, and the windows mourn,
fully empty, and looking as if they, too,
' were dying with the -blues," so Nell and
I made up oar minds which being done,
nothing remained but to put our de
termination into execution to leave the
city .instandex, and go up to a delightful
SI ace in new London to spend the holi
sys. No sooner said than done, and next
. morning, at an early hoar, we were on
route for Pine Grove Lodge, where we ar
, rived late in the evening.
I kad never been to Pine Grove Lodge

As it was, however, we thanked oar stars
that no such proof of our pedestrian pow

to the stage driver, and bandied ourselves

we both started up in bed. The moon

ckar as day. and everything in the room

upon the forehead, and dark, wild eyes
glaring at us savagely.
We would have screamed, but our ton
gues clove powerless to our mouths, and
for some moments we could not utter a
sound, while that ghastly face still looked
in upon us with its savage eyes.
"May I be frightened to death," at last
exclaimed Nell, "if I stand any such non
sense! Ill see what that ghost is made of,
or I'll know the reason why !" And snatch
ing a anilt that lay across the foot of the
bed, she folded it around her, and, with a
single bound, was half way across the
room toward the window. But the face
had vanished. ' Nell rushed up to the win
dow and peered out. nothing was to be
seen save the clambering vines that shad
ed the window, and the Tittle terrace that
led from it and opened at a little distance
further on into the drawing room.'
Nell fell back bamea this lime, out ue-
clared she would yet solve the mystery.
The next morning, at breakfast, we were
of course questioned as to our adventuies
during the night, and Nell undertook to

After breakfast was over commenced
Nell's flirtation with Harry again. It was

It is a notorious fact that the expense of
itntish rule in India is something enorm
ous, and forms a crushing incubus on the
country. The population is roughly esti
mated at a hundred and ninety millions.
and the average taxation last year in vari
ous ways amounted to three and three-
fourth shillings (English) per head. The
gross production of India for the same
time averaged tuirty-one and a halt gain
ings per head, so that the taxes took twelve
per cent of the product. These figures
alone are enormous; and when we add the
opium impost and the local and municipal
taxes, tn ere is an aggregate or nearly ntly
million pounds, or two hundred and fifty
million dollars. In 1857 the total was
only about half the above amount ; there

country, it has net kept pace with
the expenditure. According to high au-
thorities. India is every year poorer and
poorer. The land tax is a burden so great
that the cultivation of the soil does not
always enable a cultivator to optain the
commonest necessities for himself and
family, and the condition of the day la
borer is pitiful in the extreme. The great
mass of the people are in a condition of
the most wretched poverty, -want in all its
forms stares vou constantly in the face.
and the only way for a traveller in India
to escape the Bight of it is to sail away
to some other lend. Of all the countries

On the other hand, I think there can be

than the whole British force, native and

and discipline are far inferior, so that they
not considered formidable. li.e
most important of these native forces
are those of Hindis and the Nizan : both

An old gentleman was talking yesterday
about pluck. Said he: "I went to Mis
in 1844. Every day families came
in from the east with nothing save what
they could bring on a four-horse wagon.
They would settle on 160 acres of land, get
nut the loon, and build a rude cabin.
They had no sugar, no coffee, no comfort-1

broke their corn so as to make a sort oi
bread, and all the time kept to work, kept
raising babies and lived. They shot tur
keys, prairie chickens and squirrels for
meat, and scumed along, l usea to watcn
their progress, and it was a certain thing
that in the fourth or fifth year after their
arrival they would build themselves a
comfortable house and turn the original
cabin into a stable. Now the sons of those
people are the solid men of Missouri, and
the daughters and granddaughters ot
those pioneer mothers wear robes, a single
one of which cost more than the entire
capital of the average Missouri pioneer."

lady or ltockhrluge. whose uncut I ace, as
well as her bright mind, had made her as

and another was a young gentleman of
Staunton, temporarily residing in Rock
bridge, who contemplated shortly remov
ing to the lar west. They were devoted
lovers, and. as the sequel will show, the
gentleman took such a precaution against
the lady changing her mind during bis
expected absence as was insurmountable.
stopping in .Baltimore a Tew hours, the
lady and gentleman, after the latter had
procured a license, repaired to tne resi
dence of Rev. Mr. Murkland, the famous
Presbyterian minister (the lady being a
Presbyterian), and were united in wed-
lock. They then returned to their respec
tive homes, ana there the. secret was con

relative in Richmond, the lady making a

There are two errors very commonly
committed by persons selecting animals
from which to breed. Home pay too much
attention to prejudice and too little to
form, while others err in the opposite di
rection. The one will select the animal
with the longest pedigree, whatever be his
form, while the other does not care about
pedigree, but bases his decision on a per
sonal inspection or the animal. . The lat
ter ot tne two is tne- least onjectionaoie,
since the stock will be far more likely to
inherit the qualities of an immediate rather
than those of a remote ancestor. While
form and character are of prime import
