To tho ocenn must Bpecd Its flight,

And tho reeds n they murmur and sigh,
And tho willows and meadow grosses

And tho ocean Is calmly waiting,
Hut novor a rlpplo will tell,
When tho wavelets tho brook Is bringing
Shall bo morgod In Its long, low swell.
And there cometh a royal sunsot
That llghtetli tho funeral pyro
Of the ilay as It glides down tho westorn Bky
And dies In Its crimson lire;
And night with Its swift wing mounting,
Tho brlghtncs sweopoth away, ,
And settcth the senl of darkness
On tho tomb of tho vanished day.
And so It but llttlo rccketh
How radiant lift's dawn may bo;
It as purely wears on to tho gloaming
As the brook tlowoth on to tho sea.
And however fair bo Its ovenlng
It will nnonlin ironp.

Struck Dumb Whilo Committing Pcr
A strange ?tnrv comes from tho eastern up
portion oi tliis county of a woman ho
being struck dumb while giving falso
testimony. Tho facts as related aro as
follows: On last Friday a colored man
named Jamos Price was on trial before
Esquire Allen, a Justico of tho Peaco,
who lias an offico on tho Macon road,
betweon Gormantown and Bartlott, in
Tenn. Price had boon beating a number in
of men in tho neighborhood, and tho
Isabella Jackson, a colored woman,
was placed on tho witness stand to tell
what sho know of tho matter. Slio began
her evidence, and was soon after
asked by tho Justico: "Do you not
know that you aro lying?" Sho answered,
"Yes, Sir." Thoso wero tho
last words Isabella Jackson ever spoko.
Slio had appeared quito independent,
and to somo extent impudent, when first
put upon tho stand, and after her last
remark a number of questions wero got
asked, but tho woman mado no

Two men of her own color wore then
told to carry her out of tho room. Wliilo to
in tho act of carrying her out it was observed
that sho was in a helpless condition.
Siio had boon paralyzed in every it
part, hor limbs wero motionless, her ho
tonguo had no power, and it soon became his
apparent to all present that tho
hand of tho Almighty had been laid
heavily upon hor. For 'two hours or
thereabouts tho woman romained in this
fmssivo state, aftorwhich sho was placed
n a wagon and convoyed to hor norno.
Sho never moved or spoko afterward,
but on Saturday evening sho expired,
no antidote applied during tho interval
having availed in affording tho slightest
reliof. Tho incident is verified by
'Squire Allen, beforo whom tho woman
appeared, and also by a number of persons
present at tho time of its occurrence.

An old dotoctivo who "dropped in"
on tho "gang" at tho Central, tho other
morning, was in a communicative mood
on tho topio of missing people, and
prefaced a singular story with tho following
words: "Thoro was a man from
a town in this Stato, not very far away
from hero, who acted tho funniest you
over sec, and if his folks hadn't .boon

purchased three spring chickens,
had them dressed, sent them to his
house with a noto to his wife asking her
to havo thorn prepared in a .particular
mannor, suitablo to his epicurean tnsto,
adding that ho would bo at homo at six
o'clock p. m. promptly, with a friend
who would spend tho evening with tho
host and hos ess. The wife was ono of
those rare women whoso happiness was
always most supremo when sho was
contributing to tho comfort of her husband.
Thoy wero tho model man ami

tootlier made a harmonious combination
by which tho good people ot tho placo
really seemed to regulate their own

coming of her lord and his companion.

was pitch dark, and tho chicken was as
cold as the stone step sho was silt'ng
on, and then she began to got fidgety."

that ho had not invited his friend to

was boarding a train bound for Chicago.
was further learned that bo was perfectly
sober; in fact, ho had never boon
known to be nn excessive drinker. A
week's absence brought no tidinsrs of

by several friends, came to Chicago
to mako inquiries. Not a traco
could bo found. Now York officials
wero notified, nnd tho steamship officers
consulted. No tidings camo back. Liverpool
and London detective bureaus
wero furnished with tho man's photograph
and tho details of his habits, but
nover a word of information was received

How Garibaldi Camo to Buy Caprcra.
,. One day, as ho was passing Robinson
Crusoo's Island, ho said: "That Robinson
must havo been tho happiest man
on earth. If over I have 10,000 francs
I will buy nn island." Somo time afterward
a brother of his died and loft
him 80,000 francs throe times more
than ho required for his island; But true
to his word, ho "bought tho island, and also
a littlo ship, and tlio remainder (5,000
francs) lie gave to tho Italian National
fund. It was in 1815 that ho first
trod on Caprera ground. Tlio island
then was but a sandy desert and a rock,
covered with a thin layer of vegetable
earth mixed with stones. It produced
stones, goats and partridges. Ho took
Menotti and Bicciotti with him, also his
friend, Folico Orriganti. Thoy sot up
three tents. Then thoy began to build
a wooden hut. But thoy found it would
bo quicker work to build a stone house.
Garibaldi loft his sons and friend there
to collect tho necessary stones together,
while ho returned to tho continent for
lime. When ho returned, tho limo
burst into tiro, and burnt tho ship. Fortunately,
the ship was insured. About
this time, Victor Emmanuel wanted
Garibaldi, and asked where ho was.
Ho was found at Caprera building a
house with his own hands. Garibaldi
went to Turin, and shortly afterward
ho wrote to his sons and friend: "Finish
tho house as you like, nnd as you
wish. It seems thoy want to drive the
Austrians out of Italy, and thoy want
mo to help them."
Wo know tho rest. But after every
fresh victory ho returned to tho calm,
peaco and solitudo of his island; until
at last ho took up constant abode thoro.
If ho loft it for a whilo, ho longed to return
to it. That island now hns becomo

boy did pretty much as ho pleased, his
father told tlio colored boy who waited
on tho table to go up into the son's room
after ho had gone to sleep and put out tho
light, which programme was carried
out for several months. Ono night,

The amount of fresh beef and mutton
now brought from Australia and Now
Zealand to Great Britain is verv largo
and is constantly increasing. Tho best
scientific skill and invontivo talent aro
employed in devising means to produce
low temperatures and to perfect othor
moans to insure preservation. Largo
capital and excellont business ability
are now employed in various enterprises
for supplying Great Britain with meat
produced on tho islands that lie in tho
South Pacific. The recent experiments
of bringing fresh meat from Sydnoy to
Glasgow in sailing vossolshavo
successful. Now tho question is
presented to tlio business men of this
country, why not bring fresh meat from
South America to supply tho cities on
the Atlantic coast? Tho distanco from
South American ports to Now York is
loss than half that from Australian ports
to Glasgow. Tlio great plains of several
South American countries aro covered
with cattle that aro now slaughtered
for tlio hides and tallow thoy afford.
It is truo that meat is cheaper in
New York than in London, but it is very
dear in the former citj'. It is also truo
that the cattle in Australia are superior
to tUoso in South America, but a few
years' time will be sufficient to grado
them up to tho proper standard. It
costs much more to raiso cattle and
sheep in Australia than in South America,
as most of tlio grazing land belongs
to individuals or is leased from
tho Government. Tho margin of profit
is much Jargor for South American moat,
as tlio cattle can bo obtained cheaper,
tlio voyago is shorter and tho temperature
of the oco'an over which vessels sail
is more favorable for preservation.
