THE BU&TNESS ASPECT OF THE
In thu general condition of industrial
and commercial nffairH, at UiIh time, wo
sco no causo or apprehensions of an
approaching crisis, or even for serious
discouragement. Predictions of great
Jluancial and buslnesa disaster have
lieon heard almost dally ever hIiico the
close of the war, those who claimed an
exact knowledge of the hltuation, pro
testing that through such an ordeal only
could tho country rectify Uh monetary
derangements, explode tho prevailing in
flation of values, and restore affaire gen
erally to u sound aud healthy condition.
In tills expectation many of our best In
formed business men and financiers have
shared, and yielding to what they es
teemed tho dictates of prudence, they
havo boon wonderfully sparing in their
investments in commercial or manufac
turlng pursuits, prefering a firm hold up
on tho actual currency, or upon its
equivalent, in readily convertible secu
ties. liut the predicted crisis seems
farther oil' to-day than it lias been for
years. Thu country has hcarcely folt tho
twinge of a spasm, notwitlntanding our
exccsHive importations aud the occur
rence of European panics which, in our
earlier vears, might have had a decided
ly enervating effect upon our entire com
It is now manifest that the conject
ures of financial disaster that have been
bo freely Indulged, are the progeny of an
Imperfect understanding of the re
cuperatlng capacities of the country, and
tho means that are to work its rescue.
A contemporary very Justly remarks
that, during the past four yearn, the
business of the couutry, so far from work
ing toward theculmlnatlon of a panic,
has been fundamentally Improving. Ry
this it Is not intended to ay that tuinc
Interests havo not" sustained losses, and
that depression and complaint havo not
been more or less general; but that, In
spite of all this, there has been a steady
return on the Ipart of our Industrial
and commercial pursuits towards those
cnif.1 ; m -,s called for by a condition
r'peaee; thai more attention has been
paid to those branches of Industry which
He at the b:no of national prosperity an d
abundance; that tnoro has been an In
creased production of tiiojo commodities
which are relatively scarce and therefore
dear; and that In this way wo have
made rapid progress towards a normal
relation between the several branches of
Industry. Tho prosperity of tho agri
cultural Interests, in a certain sense at
tho expense of manufacturing and tra
ding Intoroats, ha-, Iwith favorable sea
sons, lnduoed such au Increaaod Jpt otitic
tlou of breadstull'i that wo now have low
prices of grain to the general advantage
of tho whole country. The earno
process has been in operation in thu
cotton trado; and although tho result
cannot, forevidunt reasons, come on rap
Idly, yet it Is easy to see that the period
is not far distant when the prico of tho
great staplo of clothing will range upon
a level with tho reduced value of bread
htuffs. Theso are most oncouraglng
Bymptoms of recovery, for the cheapness
of food and clothing lies at the basis of
moderate values for all other products,
and of necessity must bo followed by
lower prices generally which, In ft freo
community, are always acconipaluod oy
abundance and prosperity.

THE CRA1Q-SPJIAGUE CASE.
Tho verdict of of $100,000 damages to Miss
Craig, becauso of the refusal of old Sprnguo
to marry her, was regarded by OTorjbody as
simply ridiculous. It was very generally
behoved that if tho young lady hnd been
damaged half that sum, shu ought to appear
as a pretty badly used up woman. Tho court
falling to soo $100,000 worth of ruin wrought
in tho hopes, afl'ectlons, or character of the
lady, but still regarding her us u damaged
female, reduced tho sum awarded to $10,000.
As a now trial has Icon denied in tho case,
it is quite likely that Spraguo will havo to
"ponoy up" tho $4t,000, and "so moto it be."

peka(Kau.) 'Reoortl,' does It well:

A Deupcrute SlrugKta for Life.
11 V W. ISRAEL.
I had started for the city one day last
month, but missed the train, and on
anxiously making inquiries I learned
that nono would bo available before six.
Ah I passed out of tho station for a
Htroll, one of tho railroad men, seeing
Impatience written in my face, said In an
undertone, "If you don't mind Infringing
the by-laws a bit, try a freight train,'
"What's that you Bay?" I eagerly ill
quired. "I alu t said nothing, ho rejoin
ed, and walked away.
"Try a freight train I" 1 repeated to
myself; and then his meaning Hashed
across my mliid, and I resolved not to
wander too far from theatatlon. In about
half an hour I observed that n freight
train had Just come in; It was drawn up
upon a siding; tho man in charge was
greasing the wheels of one of the cars,
the station-master bad entered his office
I would try tho freight train !
Crossing over to the man I said, "Can
I go with you?" He turned round, start
ed, said nothing, aud then resumed his
work. On my repeating the question, lio
littered a decided no I He was evidently
inn surly mood; so I left him, resolving
to act for myself. Passing along thu row
of laden trucks, I reuched tho last car.
Tills was half roofed over. While I was
inspecting It n shriek from tho engine
told that it was starting. Without loosing
a moment I clambered up, and swinging
myself in by a hand-rail, proceeded to
explore the interior. The hinder portion
of thu cur was not covered, but the front
Dart was, and it was also closed up all,
except a doorway, by which it was en
tered from tho open part. Taking refugo
in this somewhat close cabin, I round it
rather dark at first, but on u long, broad
seat opposite the door lay a heap of coats
and a sort of horse-cloth, which I con
cluded belonged to my surly friend. Re
clining upon theso I awaited his arrival,
forthetrulu was rolling rapidly along,
tho engino puffing merrily.
On tho whole, my new quarters were
tolerably comfortable; they were snug
und warm, while thu wiud outside was
bitterly cold. My eyes becoming accus
tomed to the dimness of the placo, seve
ral things which had not at first been
visible began to attract my observation
A couple of Jars aud a black bottle stood
In ono corner; on the lloor near them a
railway lamp, several oil cans aud a red
Hag; above them, on u shelf, three greasy
lookiug books In parchment covers, a
small stone Ink bottle, somo quill pens,
a short clay pipe, aud tobacco box. An
unpleasant odor of oil and stale smoke
and (as I could not help fancying) of
spirit pervaded the place. These, with
tne exception of the latter, I should havo
expected to meet with. What was in
the corner by tho door it was not easy to
determine. Once It seemed as if some
thing moved. After some minutes had
elapsed I leant forward to solve the
mystery, and caught hold or what ap
peared to bo tho folds of an overcoat.
As I did no there was a Uttlo scream, and
It was evident that 1 hud discovered
some ono in hiding. Ilefore my surprise
had abated a scrambling overhead aud
a heavy thump upon the floor of tho car
outside tho door announced that tho sur
ly man had arrived. In ho came Just as
tbo two concealed ones had como to this
Juncture. "Hallol" he shouted, "what's
this I Why. why, who the'' but be
fore he could get any further, a little
girl of about seven years of ago rati to
him from his dark corner, and held him
bv his coat. "What do you want hero?
Mynamols Jabez Hull what's your's?
Jabe wauts to know what you arc
From his aspect and manner I now
saw that though anything but incapa
ble, he had been Imbibing freely, and
was bent on mischief. Thinking thut
conciliation would be the best courso for
mo to ndopt, I answered him clvlly;
told him that I was his passenger, aud
willing to pay my fare; assured him that
ho should not be incommoded by mu,
and wo would sit down together aud bo
friendly. "Will we?" he replied. "Oh!
Indeed; passenger! Jnbez'a passenger
are you? Fare! Ib that all?" "Yes."
said I; "what more do you require?"
"More? You are area director, I expect;
a rascally, intruding spy, como to seo
what's going on come to turn out thl
clillii from my can nut no it suant ue
doue. If I'm infringing tho by laws, so
aro you; aud you may as well break
your own neok us glvo mo the trouble of
doing It. Over with you!" Ho pointed
with mock majestic to tho sldoof the car.
"That's the way," ho said, "takeltl"
Tho train was now golug very fast
down a slight Incline, and tnere was no
ono within call. Protending, therefore,
not to observe what ho had Just said, I
took out my purse with tho view of di
verting his attontlon. "Look here," said
I, "Whut is the faro for riding in this
comfortable car of yours? yhull I give
you '' With ono stroke of his hand
ho had dashed my purso aud all It con
tained far away across tho line, and
stamping upon the floor of tho car lie
brandished his fists in my face aud shout
ed; "Fifty dollars! or over you go llko a
The little girl now clung to him, and,
screaming with torror, begged him to bo
quiet. Hut ho thrust her from him witli
a back stroke of hlsarmaud sprang upon
mo: seizing me with his hand by the
neck, with Ills left ho thrust mo back
against tho woodwork. Ho was a stal-
wart fellow, and I was but slight. Ho
hud full advantage over me, and this he
know. I thought that I should be suffo
cated; my temples throbbed; and I felt
my fnco getting reddor every moment.
Neither of us spoke for a few moments.
I scanned anxiously every part of tho
car within sight, to sec if there were any
means of escupo, but saw none, and un
less ho would let me go so that I might
Jump or clamber out, thero was uo getting
clear of him, With a wrench he threw
mo from him to tho opposite side of tho
car. l6oked overilnklngitoleaV, but
sav tho danger. Availing myself of tho
moment to draw breath. I leant over tho
sldo and then shouted with ail my might
to the engineer. That ho could not hear
me was evident, for tho train waB tearing
along against a strong head wind, and
all sound of my Volco was blown far to
the rear. But where was the llttlo girl?
8ho had disappeared had she fallen over
during our struggle?' No further time
was given mo for escape or Inquiry.
With a bound my antagonist was at me
again; there was Just time ror mo to turn
round and faco him. We closed, and
then I found ho was endeavoring to lift
mo over the edge! Valuiy I tried to beat
him off, aud though he aimed a blow
at mo now and then, bo was
too noar and not sober enough to
strike with effect. His object woa to
throw mo over; my only chanco there
fore consisted in holding on so nsjto pre
vent this, or else, if possible, to get a clear
fall and take tho chance of it. Ho kept
nresslnir mo over backward with all his
force, and it was impossible for me to fro
niysou rrom ins grasp. At last no suc
ceeded In lifting me over, but as he did
so I managed to reach down over his
back, where I took a firm hold of the
lower part of his Jacket, and turning It
up over him pinioned his arms some
what; and brought his head down upou
me, as if in a bag. Having by this part
ly disabled him and established a good
holdfast for both my hands, I hoped that
his weight would sustain me, and that
wo would be ablo to continue tlniH, hold
ing on to each other till rescued at tho
first stopping place. My fear was, as I
hung over tho side, that some object in
Fasslng might crush or strlko mo off; yet
held on. My prisoner soon became res
tive: every moment I thought would he
my last; tho cold wind benumbed my
fingers, my only support; one of my
legs was jammed under him, against the
edge of tho car, and this kept my hend
down and prevented my getting free.
Every moment my position became more
and more precarious; if my hands slip
ped I must bo killod, and I felt that I
oould not last thus much longer. At this
very moment I perceived that tho little
girl had climbed to the top of the next
car and had managed to attract the at
tention of tho fireman, who came to our
assistance from tho other end of the
train. He vas now sliding down toward
us over tho tarpaulin that covered tho
contents of the adjoining car. "Wo are
saved !" I cried ; but bffore he could reach
us, my comrade, overbalanced, came
headlong over tho side upou me, I still
clinging to him, and wo were dushed
against the side of tlio metals, then
down an embankment to a considerable
depth, and all was darkness
On recovering my senses I found that
an arm and lee wore badly torolten, and
that it would be very long before I could
recover: and when I asked for Jabez, my
antagonist, I saw by their faces that he
was dead! Yes, he had fallen on his
head aud beeu killed instantly. Jabez's
little girl was now quite an orphan, for
she had lost her mother somo time before.
She dearly loved her erring father, aud,
contrary to the rules of the company, he
allowed her to accompany him In his
car. making hor hide herself when the
train stopped, for fear she should be dis
covered. But besides his Innocent little
companion, the unfortunate mau carried
with him something very different, even
that which at times deprived him of his
reasoning faculties. My Inopportune
visit to him, coupled with this, brought
about the catastrophe I havo described.
Ho never spoke after being picked up.
His little maid was disconsolate, aud
how could I comfort her?
Weeks and mouths passod away. My
day's Journey had wrought sorrow and
death, and the grief connccied with it
haunts meatlll, but I havo somujoy in
knowing that I have provided a good
home for Jabez Bull's little daughter.
