taken place and all was in an uproar.
Then Augustus said alls over no

I stood bewildered tor a moment
and remembering I had been out late
turned to a man or boy rather who
was cross legged and pouring soma

piece of paper which I knew belonged
to Derrick Van Bummel, tho

Through kinder bilious looking, ho

When this boy taken a sotuothing
out of his pocket and proccded to
burn up this valuable paper, I could
not refrain from making some inquiry
about my friend Derrick Van Bummel
he said he did'nt know a man
by that name in these diggins.
He said ho had heard it said that
our storekeeper and
used to go by that name but since he
had raised so fast in politics ho was
called by the name of our county
seat (Marion). When I looked so
surprised, be came closer and beg
I ged to explain the past until I understood
it as well as Hager did last
fall. He said ever since G rover
Cleveland's days, Van Bummel, the
school master, had been coming to
the top, round by round, untilonc
day the magistrates court was in
session" on the steps of the little
grocery store. It sooms that none
could read the charec against the
accused. The court called for the
school master, the jury yawned and
the deaf one was signaled to set
erect. It seemed that every one
knew about the trial. Some time
ago the hired man had eloped with
the mail carriers daughtor. Tho
father of the girl had the young man
arrested, but thoy did not know what
kind of a charge to brine atraiust
him. The court agreed to leave it
to Van Bummel, to instruct the jury.
Afttr one hour and a half had been
passed in r on ding aud spcllint: from

his book on tho door step and said --

On wakiug I found myself on the
green knowl, from whenco I had first
seen the old man of the glen.
I rubbed my eyes it was a bright
sunny morning. The birds wore, happy
and twittering among the bushes
and tho eagle, orbuczard, was wheel,

mountain breeze. Surely thought I

what exouso shall I make to Dame
Y.n Winkle? I dreaded to give up
my dog Wolf rather than to do it.
L would pay a tax on him. I shouldered
my rusty firelook, and with a
heart full of trouble and anxiety 1
turned my steps homeward,
As I approached the village,
met a number of people, but none
whoia. I knew, which somewhat surprised
me, for 1 had myself
with every one in the countryrouad
Their dress, too was of a differant
fashion lo that which I was accustomed.
1 had now entered the outskirts of
the village, I was suppriscd to hear
such a commotion, mon and women
hollowing and shouting at the top
of their voices, throwing their fans
climbing on fences and back benches
and tramping on one another corns,
then I heard some one bay in a loud
voice, safe at home. 1 thought they
had learned of my returning some
time in the lattor part of the night.
I looked in the direction from
whonoe the uoi&e. I saw a number of
men with pecular uits on. Four mon
stood in a row, stood on cornors of
a diamond shaped plot of ground.
I recognized, Hend riek Hudson

one man stood close by behind him
with wire spectacles on. He also had

other two men stood at some distance
from the man who held the pin, one
of them held a very small ball iu one
hand, the one behind this one said
something and begat to take aim at
the man who had the ball. When the
noise cleared away I saw the man
had left the I) pins lying on the
ground and was hurrying away towards
where the man to the right was
standing on something that reminded
me of a d-y barrel of rum w.hich seemed
to do him a great de. o! '01. Another
