I oould not but admire the art with
which Mr. Dixit had managed to in

could easily resent. Even the repartee
I meditated was foiled in advance.

I persevered in my resolution to
avoid, this gentleman without any mark
ed result upon hi« health or spirit*
My intention was, however, perceived
by Lady Ursula, who directed frequent
and produeed a general impression up
on onr circle, that cordiality to me was
a, tacit,.»ifrpo£ to Mr. Dixit, The
Doctor, arch insorntable Miss Martin
dale, and her uncle, Mr. Clevendon-—
a goast than a. patient—were
alone bold enough to maintain kindly
relations with me. The lady—whom
I daily found mora and more captiyat
that I en*
bis attentions, was a worthy but form
al and prosy country gentleman of thetop
old school. His chief topic was the
pedigrees and relative standings of
three old families—his neighbors—in'
Herefordshire. WdnldJtoU-yon how
the first Sir Balph Eooke was summon
ed to parliament in the rei^n of King
Stephen hew th« present Lord Back
at J^poke inherited eollateraHy from
the original Baron how Tudor Manor
had been confiscated by the parliament
in the Ciyi} War and given to thethe.
Wo^hamA and ^o(wrt tlio IWeodhams
persisted in maintaining the armorial
hearings of the Tudors oyer the gate
way, and ftking credit for the two sup
porting griffins-—whereas n.Q Woodham
was ever entitled to any property in
those distinguished anima's how a
Prince of the. Blood passing on to
Wales—in order to mark his displeas
ure at the fraudulent appropriation of
the griffiuB—had aocepted the hospit
ality of Tudor Lodge" rather thai that
of Woodham Hall and hew he |(Mr.
Clevedon), out of respect to the Tudors,
bad waived his own'claim to the royal
guest. The good old gentleman Was
Miss Martindale's uneje but still
I was bored. I longed for a new in
terest. "'7.'. ''",''"
It came just before I reaohed that
resigned torpor, that fossil state of .en
nui into which my baffled desires Were
fast hardening. In front of the -house
there was a terrace on whioh most of
us used to promenade for an hour be
fore luncheon. OB these occasions the
satellites of Mr. Dixit were wont to
cluster round their intellectual oentre,
and to bask in his brilliancy.
In the outermost ring of this group
I observed one day tho Doctor standing
arm-in-arm with a tall middle-aged
man, who was evidently the latest ar
rival. So extraordinary were the ap
pearance and manners of the new patient
that we indulged him, I tear, with a
more frequent scrutiny than, qnite tal
lied with good breeding. His long un-'
kempt light hair—whioh streamed ir
regularly down his'shpulders—was sur
mounted by a small, conioal, and nar
row-brimmed hat. The hat itself
swerved from bis turbulent locks like a
child rider who with inadequate knees
fails to bestride his steed, and oliogs
therefore to his neok. The head whiob
Was thus enveloped and adorned, pre
sented, so far as we could judge, a full
and ample brow but I would have de
fied any onetosay on- a firat inspection
what was the character of the eyes.
Now they dilated, now they blinked
how they pierced you with keen in
quiry, anon they seemed as if all their
light.had gone inward. They appear
ed to preside over the. musolesj and
limbs like the leader of an orchestra
oyer his troupe. The month alternate
ly compressed and twitching and the
arms, one moment rigid, the next
gaLvinicaily active, fully corresponded
to thereter-Tarying optics.
Mr. Dixit was declaiming against .the
abaured doctrine that the sale of ^mili
tary commissions should be disedntin
ued, and that soldiers should be pro
moted according to merit and seniority.
"Such a proposal ia ridiculous," said be..
"You must have gentlemen for your ot
Seers and a man who has risen by
merit seldom feels at home in the com
pany of gentlemen."
"I admit that sometimes the two
classes have little in common," said
Miss Martindale with her quiet smile.
"Mr. Dixit always puts things so
pxactioally," eried Lady Trsola.
"Sp very practioally/' ohimed a dos

But jerked out as they were, accom

was appalling. What was to be done
with the new patient for he was theThey

In this case society had been too
frfply ©ouvnlsed for Mr. Dixit to ig
nore the culprit. Calmly, as one who
feels a crisis, but feels also that he is
equal to it, our oracle transfixed Clay
ton with bis eye, and observed, "You
beg to differ, sir," you say, "from this
company. I have not the slightest
doubt that this oompany will be resign
ed to your doing so."
Then arose that abort quiok com
pound of a laugh and a cough which
Lady Ursula meant for applause. Then
arose that general hum of admiration
whioh was aura to greet the discomfi
ture of Mr. Dutit's Tiotuns. Mitt Mar
tindale alone, who walked somewhat
apart, was graye and silent.
But when the applause had subsided,
•he said, "I really did not catch Mr
Clayton's words. It might sometimes
interesting to hear anew view."
"Not if it wore an absurdity," re
plied Sir Josiah's relict to a whisper
that feigned, to be confidential but was
heard by every one.
"Ah absurdity, madam!" ejaculated
Claytonhimself. "Well it was

"Confine yourself to the terms of the

quality ot the opinion—not to your

A late Australian paper has the fol
lowing aooount of the discovery of a
mass of gold: There has been anoth
er huge yield of gold in one of the won
derful Hill End mines—Messrs. Beyers
and Holterman's claim. Our corres
pondent thus chronicles the event:
"On Friday night last, the largest and
richest specimen this colony has pro-a
duped, I suppose, was taken from the
plaim of Beyers and Holferman. It is
really a wonderful one—a slab of gold.
Its weight is about 6 1-2 owt. and I
believe,I am within the mark in say
that there are 2 cwt. of gold in it.
1 went, together with nearly the whole
t?wn, toiook at iC The claim was
like a fair, and a regular stream of peo
ple threaded the steep packing ttaoks
leading down to it. On Sunday it
bung up for exhibition, and during the
day hundreds, including many ef tbe
fair sex, went down to see it. A
same time that I went te look at this,
Mr. Bullock, the manager, kindly re
vealed the treasures of the iron box, in
which are specimens not so large cer
tainly, but prettier to look upon. The
monster is not alone in his glory he
has fellows bigger and richer below, I
am told. He appears to form part of a
(ode rather than a veio, as no quartz
seem to bo showing—nothing but
mundie and a slate casing."

ThePekin (111.) Register, of last
Friday, reported a ease of death by
freezing in Spring Lake, Tazewell Co.,
and on Sunday adds the following par
sionlars. If the story be true, the par
ties who left the unfortunate man to
perish deserve the penitentiary. The
story, the Register says, is taken from
the reports of those who were present
at the inquest:
A party at Gooding's house heard
tbe man halloo they went out andreceived
talked to him. ssid he was soBoard
cold and benumbed that he could not

|)Few of us ever stop^tojthtok how old
the Bible is. Yet "the. scriptures are
believed by candid critics to contain
the most ancient,forms of truth now
known to men." With the aid of
chronological tables, any one may easi
ly make piofitable comparisons between
the antiquity of the books and that of
other writings and events. The Scrip
tures contain the only authentic history
of the world before the flood. We find
in the Pentateuch one or two stanzas
of poetry composed in the antediluvian
period. The Hebrew statutes were en
acted a thousand years before Ju£tin
ian reformed the Roman jurisprudence.
In the Bible we have the record of
chartered rights secured to the people
mora than two thousand years before
the Magna Charter. What a sensation
would bo produced if the first chapter
of Genesis should appear for the first
time in on© of tbe newspapers to-mor
row Yet there can be no doubt that
chapter contains the oldest writing, 2,
5OT) years before the invention of print
ing. Zenophon's record of the conver
sations of Socrates, in his Mea-.oriabil
ia, seems an old book to us, yet sim
ilar topics were discussed io Ecclesias
tes 600 years before. The works of
Tacitus, Plutarch and Quintilliaa are
not modern yet the books of the New
Testament are older than tbey. As to
the book of Job, its age is beyond con
jecture. Those who make it as mod
ern as tbey can are compelled to plaee
its origin at least 1,000 years before
Homer. When Priam was. king of
Troy, Job was of remote antiquity.
The name of Alexander was no modern
sound for us, yet when Alexander in
vaded Syria, the book of Job might
have been read bel'ere him as the work
of an author more time-honored than
the name of Alexander is now. The
writings of Confucius are modern when
compared with most ot the Bible and
the most that the Hindoos can justly
claim for their sacred books, tbe Yedas,
is that they were written 500 years af
ter tbe death of Moses. Tbe Koran is
a book fresh from the press compared
with the Scriptures.—Dr. Upton.

The stories of the wit of the late
Col. Isaac O. Barns are numerous, but
to be fully appreciated need the Col
onel's peculiar veice and dry manner,
familiar to those who used to know
him. The following anecdote we do
not remember to have ever seen in
The Colonel, it seems, had been re
commended to take horseback exercise
for the benefit of his health, by his
physiciaB, and accordingly applied at
well known stable for the animal.
"I want a regalar trotting horse, to
ride for my health this afternoon."
"Certainly, Colonel," said the polite
proprietor and, judging from the cus
tomer's physique and "a horse to ride
for health," gave him one of the hard
est trotting horses in tbe establishment
upon which Barnes -mounted and
bumped off toward the country.
In about three hours he returned,
with dust and perspiration, and,
with the assistance of one of the host
lers, slowly and painfully descended
Limpiog into the stable office, and
holding on to the lower part of his back
with one hand, he looked into the sta

down the sum.

Barnes holding en te his lacereted

"there's nothing the- matter with -the
