Spring in the Eocky Mountains.
Spring in all latitudes and longitudes
is indeed a delightful season. It is ruoro
especially so here near the place when
winter is stored up for use almost Him
entire year. Here in tho neighborhood
where the remains of Sir John Frank
lin were found, here where a man
has to wear a seal hkin cap with ear
mufl's on the Fourth of July, spring,
gentle spring, is more heartily welcomed
All nature is glad at this season of the
vear and at this elevation. The socia
ble little "cactus conies forth in tho
gulches, while in its bosom the bud is
swelling which in June will come forth
in its tropical brightness; nioek littlo
cactus, emblem of quiet tmbmissinn,
emblem of a reluctant spring. Coy and
shy, modest and reserved at times, lot
not the fresh and gentle stranger under
take to crusli thee with his person.
Spring in this torrid clinic reaches us
about June, and even at that time seems
uncertain ami lacks that decision of
character which marks the season farth
er away from the open polar sea than
we are. .
It is at this season that the mountain
streams are turned into tho irrigating
canals iindgolaughingmloivn thegreen
fringed ditches of the "town, kissing tho
oyster can ami with a gurgle of satis
faction dallying with the still'ened re
mains of tlie holiday corset.
Out in tlie sun-kissed hills and over
the mellow distance where the gray sky
lingers lovingly on tue mountains, tho
graceful little cottontail is bounding
athwart tlie glorious landscape. On be
yond him the eye catches the swift yet
noiseless movement ot I lie coyote. In
a moment the cotton-tail and the coyote
will have melted into each other like it
beautiful dream, and the coyote will bu
on the outside.
In tho greenish-gray foreground of
this beautiful picture, underneath the
protecting boughs of the sagebrush, the
sagc-hen is laving her eggs. We will
not disturb her thoughts. Tho intellect
ual strain which it requires to lav au
egg should not be harshly broken in up
on by the careless and thoughtless world
Across the stretch of level plain nnd
the green divide the summer zephyr is

Mrs. Melville's Vision,
A Prophatlc Story of the Lo.s of the Jeannette,
The wife of Engineer Melville, tho
gallant oflieer of the luekless Arctic- ex
ploring steamer Jeannette, who is now
searching for his lost comrades around
the ico bound coast of Northern Siberia,
occupies a picturesque little cottago em
bowered amid twining honeysuckles and
fragrant blossoming lilacs at Sharon
Hill. "Although it has been more than
three years since Oorgo left us all
hero," said she, yesterday, "and wont
out on that ill-fated voyage, and al
though oceans of cruel waters and
leagues of land have separated him from
us, I have seen him twice within a
year." Startling ns tho statement was,
Airs. Melville was evidently in earnest.
"On tho Kith of last June," she con
tinued, "I retired to my room late al
night. Days of anxious waiting for
some news of the Jeannette without
bringing a ray of hope had almost
caused mo to despair of ever again see
ing my husband. I had fallen into an
uneasy sleep, from which one at tho
children aroused nie. It was, perhaps,
more than an hour after thw, and wliilo
I was wido awake, that I became con
scious of a strange presence in the room,
and you may imagine with what min
gled feelings of joy and fear I heard
George's voice, and, looking up, saw
him standing by tho bedside. Saw him
as plaiuly as I now see vou. He was
saying: 'Count tho bells! Count the
bells!' and, as he spoke, I distinctly
heard the bells of a ship striking, twb
by two, the strokes of the hour. -Count
them,' continued my husband, and 1
said: 'Yes, George.' I remember that
when the seventh stroke sounded I
thought that if it was a ship'3 bell there
could be but one more, and as the last
sound died awav my husband said:
'Eight bells; the Jeannette is lost!' and
vanished from the room. At that mo
ment the sitting room clock struck the
hour of four, and it was the morning of
the lltli of June. At that very houron
that very morning the Jeannette went
down into the fathomless depths of tho
Arctic ocean, and the ice floe closed over
her grave. I am no spiritualist," con
tinued Mrs. Melville, "nor do I believe
in spirits. I do not attempt to explain
what I have just told you, but it is every
word of it true. I never expected after
that to near of the safety of the crew of
the Jeannette. A few weeks after the
occurrence which I have narrated, ami
at the same hour in tho morning, I had
arisen for tho day, and was in tho hall
which you see there. Again I saw my
husband, nay, I even felt his breath in
my face. I was dreadfully startled, but
had suflieient courage to call out,
'George, is that you?' when the figure
disappeared as if' swallowed up iu the
"Aud did you never apeak of this he
fore?" said tlio astonished reporter.
"Frequently," said Mrs. Melville;
"frequently tb our little household, and
once to Mrs. IVLong, the unfortunate
wife of thepoorcominanderof the Jean
nette. Last summer, or in the earlv
fall, I met her iu Philadelphia. She was
hopeful, even conlident, of tlie ultimate
return of her husband. I was cast
down, and finally told her what I have
just related to you. She was disposed
to laugh at me,' but I told her I believed
that the J .una !'e had been lost on tho
11th of June. Alas! for poor Mrs. lie.
Long, my prophecy was too true. Hero
is a Tetter from her to mv littlo girl on
the very day the news camo that Cap
tain tieliong s ueiul body had been
The Best Man in Burke Oounty.
Not long since a traveler on our rail
road, fully' half flooded, stepped off tho
train at tho depot, nnd approached our
venerable Marshal, who was standing
near, and declared himself the best man
in Btirko county. The Marshal assent
ed that he might be. "but," said the
traveler, "I am the best man in Waynes
boro." Again the Marshal assented,
and thus failing to get up a row, tho
irate traveler camo down to personali
ties by saying, "I am abetter man than
you are, sir." The Marshal gave, him
a cool look, and replied, "You may bo
a stronger man than I am, but I hero
hold the strongest position." "How
so?" asked the man. "Why, sir, I am
the Marshal of Waynesboro." Light
ning was not quicker than that man In
getting in tho train, and he never so
much as looked out of the window
again. Wtiyuahoro (Ua.) Citizen.
