The Curse of the Crimson Cross.
Marian, Lady Fairfax had been ona
of the most beautiful women in tbe conn
try when the liocime tbe bride of Sir Eoy,
nor was 6he less lovely now, in the second
year of her wifehood. Tall and exquisitely
moulded, fchu hi Ion , cd neither to the class
of blonde nor Lruuette, j t united in her
pcrsontlle the chief charms of bolh. Her
Lair was of a rich, cli-ttning, chestnut
brown, brushed back from a transparently
clear forehead: and hersoft.large ay.s were
of the cltar hrowu which seeais to melt and
- grow limpid as you gaze at it, while her
compL-xion was fri-.-h as a rose, and no
sculptor's ait ccnld hav -improved on the
perfection of tor small pure features.
yir Hay Fairfax was worthy of the aristo
cratic race frvm which he sprung an
Apollo in lau'y, a gladiator in strength
and tize. lie was dark, with curling hair
and biiht l ire (j-ns, w hose paza was fal
con like in its ltcci:Tiecs, bet there waa an
expression only of the most caressing ten
dtrness in their light as he approached his
wiie. L:idy Fairfax's face prew bright as
she held out her jeweled hand.
"You are l ite to-night, Eoy."
"A little laie, my love, but I had letters
to write," he answered.
"I wih jou were rot going out to din
ner to-ni;ht," she said, instinctively draw
ing nearer to his side.
"ily darling, don't be unreasonable, " he
answered, touching her bright hair fondly.
"I shall be t tu-k before you have had time
even to - is me."
"As if I did vot always miss yon, Eoy."
"Don't sit np in- me, Marian. 1 shall
endeavor to f t mi as early as possible, but
I dou't like th idea of those bright eyes
f,rowin,i dim with miilnight vigils. From
ise me to go to vonr room at eleven.
"I promise, liov."
Her eyes ehovu foftly up into his as he
bent to pne-i a goo 1 bye kiss upon the
dewy scarlet of her lovely lips, and thus
Sr E.,y's footsteps had long died away
in the corridors, ft'iJ the little clock had
chimed several tims. when Lady Fairfax
sounded the small silver hand-bell on the
table. Her rn:a 1 answered the summons
a grave, midd'c-a;ed womaa.
"Art there lights in my room. Wharton?"
"Yes, my lady. Do yoa wish to retire?"
"I may as w'el! go up stairs, as to sit
her?,"sai lLidv F'irfiX, wearily. I prom
ised Sir Eov not to be late."
"Has Sir II y gone out, my lady?"
"Yes : he dints at Jlr. Mountjoy's tJ
cighr," "Gne out to dinner, my lady?"
Lady Fairfax glanced np in surpri-e.
"Did von not hear me sny he was to dine
at the "Mountjoy's? What is there 60
btraugo about tbat?"
"Xothinc. my lady, to be sure, an
swered Sirs. Wharton, occupying herself
with gathering up the books and work
scattered rouu'd Lady Fairfax's table; "only
Dickson has just come up from the game
keeper's coit ige, and says he saw Sir Eoy
going in there."
"Dickson must be mistaken," said Lady
Fairf iX rltcid.'y. You havo left my casso
Idk on the table, Wharton."
Mrs. Wharton followed her lady up the
broad staircase, on which a strip of velvet
carpet deadened the sound of footsteps
into a large and beautifully-decorated
apartment, where the skill of ihe modern
upholsterer had turned the ancient walls
into a casket of beauty and freshness.
"I am riot sleepy yet, Wharton," said
Lady Fairfax, glaucing around her, as she
sank into the cushione depths of this easy

and she withdrew, leaving Lady Fairfax
alone in the near.uiui room.

Waen, filially he rose, and moved steadi

Across the dewy grass past the old ivy
mantled tree, where an owl hooted dismally
as ho passed down a narrow path, Sir
Eoy Fairfax walked, until ho found him
' self of a sudden, ciose to the back entrance
of a small thatched cottage, on the very

"At last !" cried old Colon 1 Monntjoy,
as the door clo"ti once in ire, behind the
new comer. "Why, man, we thought you
were never coming !"
"It is the hour we agreed upon," Sir Eoy
"Well, perhaps you mny be right about
that," said the old gentleman, impatiently,
"but when a man is waiting, every minute
seems like an hour."
Sir Eoy glanced round the room, nodded
to his other comrade, a tall, rather slender
man, and spoke a word or two to the game
keeper, a grizly-headed Scotchman of fifty
"You think the game will lie well to
night, Morrison ?"

answered with a repressed chuckle.

He led the way, plunging into an appar,
ently trackless bit of over-grown woods
through which he threaded his way sure
footed and swift as one of the Park doer.
The three gentlemen followed, and for a
few minutes the silence was unbroken.
Suddenly Morrison stopped breathing,
rather than whispering into Sir Roy's ear,
as he pointed in the dim, uncertain star
light, at a small open 'space, quite sur
rounded with dwarfed trees and nnder-
"There, Sir Eoy, there's the trap on the
edge o' them hazels, and it ain't empty

The old man's hand trembled with eag

"Hush ! On your life, don't speak a
word, man," murmured Sir Roy, motioning
to the other two to advance ro farther,
"We have only to wait now."
Tho cwnrli rrew into minutes minutes
seemed to lengthen themselves out, as the
four men stood tnere so motionless max you

A second or two it could scarcely have

but the report of the nflo had proved a

secluded covert was a scene oflife and motion;
and the career cf Owen Owenson, as faras
life in the free, fresh world of woods and field
was concerned was over.

Sir Rot Fairfax's voice raised in auger, and
Sir Roy Fairfax's incensed brow would have
been appalling to most people, but Mary
Owenson did not fiiDcb, standing there with
hor little babe pretscd close to her breast.
She was a pretty, slender young woman,
rather wan and pale, but possessing a Certain
grace, like the uncultured birch tree of the
woods, and her dress, of some coarse woolen
material, half hidden by a red shawl drawn
over her head, was sihRularly pictnreaque.
"I knew it couldn't be so, Sir Roy," ciur

But Mary Owenson was not screaming now.
Apparentlv the force of her entreaties had
exhausted" her, and she lay quiet quiet and
motionless on the floor, as the servants gent

himself came back after the little child, who
sat cooing on the carpet as if the whole scene
had been a farce gotten up for its especial
benefit. . , , ,
'Poor little mite," said Bulworth, as he
deposited bis tiny bundle in the housekeep

Left" to herself, Ladv Fairfax took up a
book and began to read, but her thoughts
wandered away from the printed pages, and
she found it impossible to govern heT atten

with a little tray, containing a few choice
morsels, which she had carefully culled out
with special eye to her mistress' tastes.
'I told yon I would await Sir Roy's com

And Lady Fairfax, nccuatomed to be domi
neered over in a mild way by Wharton, ate
and drank, with a docile obedience to orders.
The clock struck nine, ssWhartou was re

after she had seen her mistress safely seated
once more in the satin-cushioned chair by
the coial-red shine of the fire.

Ladv Fairfax had heard the unaccustomed
tumult and confusion, also, breaking in upon
the quiet thread of her thought. She sat an

somewhat faster than its ordinary wont, and
then rose to her feet, and was hurrying to the
door, when it flew suddenly open, and Mrs.

"Whtrton," she cried, "what has happen

A little crcwl was gathered in the hall
throusht' e wide-open portals of tho great
doorwav the ke n winter wiud rushed in,
making" the light flic ker and flare strangely.
Old Morison, the head game-keeper, was the
first person she recognized.
"Go back, Lady Marian! ' he cried. "It's
no place for you to come! Fool!" to Wharton,
h foilowed her mistress, wlidly ringing
her hand-; "why did you let her como here?
Yon sh.nld have k pt her by main forcel My
bonnie ladv," he added, in a vo'ce that shook
and trembled, "go back agair.l"
He took both her hands to lead her to the
threshold she had just quitted, but Lady
Fairiax broke from him, a white, gha.-tly ter
ror on hur face, and ran towards the group,
which silently parted on either eide, to admit
her slight, flmtcring figure!
Parted, to disclose a bight which well nigh
froze the blood in her veins. Eor there, on
a ha.-tilv cons rnctcd litter of boughs, woven
together with willow twigs, in the centra of
the hall n or, lay sir iuy r jiriax.qnite aaa,
with great clots of blood congealed round a
wound on his brea-t. Torn which the cloth
ing had ieen torn recklessly away, and a
crimson cross drawn on his brow, as if by a
finger, dipped in the sanguineous stream!
Marian sprang forward, and throwing her
self on her knees beside tlu corpe, drew its
cold head npon her bosom, cryinsr out wildly:
"My husband ! my husband I Oh, who has
done this cruel thing"
"There!" said old Morison, in a voice
choked by emotion, "take her away! The
Lord be praised, she has fainted!"
As they carried the senseless form of the
happily unconscious lady from tho hall, Mary
Owenson's wh:to :ace glancc.i over Cubvorth's
shoulder, at the gory corpse!
"Ah, p or lady." 6ho said, plowly. "Then

"You marked it!" echoed Bulworth, turn

"Woman, what had yon to do with it?"
"I shot h;m," 6aid Jlxry Owenson, quietly
nodding her head. "With Owen's very gnu

The Ladles' Sorosis Club,
of New York recently changed their discus
sions from woman's suffrage to IIar prepara
tions and Pimple Banishers. They declared
that where nature had not endowed them with
beauty, it was their right yea, their duty to
seek it where they could. So they all voted
that Maimoha Bairn overcame Sallowness,
Bough Sbm and RioRmarks, and gave tho
complexion a most dislingue (Sorosian) and
marble-like appearance (dangerous to men,
no doubt); and that Lyon's Eathairon made
the Hair grow thick, soft snd awful pretty,
and moreover prevented it from turning gray.

We have been to considerable expense In patting
farmers on their guard against th. frauds that were
being perpetrated in the sale of Seed Oats, but not
until recently did we realize the magnitude of these
swindles. IL W. Marshall, of Cincinnati, Ohio, baa
issu ad a circalar much ot the entente of which has been
copied from ours, representing that he is oar authorized
agent for th. West, for the sale of the Ramsdeil Nor
way Oats seed. W. are informed by reliable parties in
Cincinnati, that be has sent out ovist Hal a Jtittiomot
these circulars, and is receiving thousands of orders,
he is a swindler, has never had any ot our seed, nor any
coinmonication with us.
N. P. Borer A Co., Publishers of a country paper
somewhere in Perm., issued a circular in a similar man
ner, claiming to nav. oar seed, bat when we exposed
the fraud they changed their tactics, and are now
adv.rtiaing that they import seed from Norway. This
dodg. ia so ridiculous, in view of the fact that onr seed
never came from Norway, and that we are tilling orders
from that country, that intelligent farmers are not likely
to be deceived by it. Samples sent us, which same
from them, have been pronounced New Brunswick
Cats by hundreds oi farmers who examined them.
Other parties are selling what they claim to be oar seed,
at prices varying from &UU to 6 per bushel, all uar
ranted, of euurte, and some nse oar name. Some of
these parties axe honest, but were themselves deceived
in th. purchase of seed last year. Out of twenty sam
ples sent us of. Norway Oats, now being advertised,
only two wen geuuiue. We cannot go through
the whole hat, bnt the above facts are suthcient. We
have only to request that those who buy of such parties
and are disappointed in their .raps, wul not condemn
our seed, as some did last year.
r'acts and figures have already been published, show
ing by as reliable testimony as can be found in the land,
that the Kamsdell Norway oata wul produce trom twice to
three times as much to th. acrere heavier .and of better
quality, stand op better, and are more bardy than any
other known oats. 1 hey have been swarded forty-live
first premiums, at the late Stat, and County fairs, in
competition with all the varieties now grown, which is
a larger number than was ever awarded to any agricul
tural improvement in a single year. Among the lead
ing journals that have recommended them, may be
mentioned tha American Agriculturist, New York
Tribune, Moore's Rural New Yorker, Independent,
X. Y. Observer, Methodist, Christian Advocate, West
ern Rural, Prairie Farmer. Advance, Toledo Blade,
and others. We can only present few specimen
extracts showing the character of th. letters received.
