THE BROKEN SPEAR.
A HARVEST STORY.
" Panto post MIuk'-Ohv.
" Come, Uv.Jt now !" cried fanner Book,
And donned hia harvest frock,
Let see that fifteen-acre piece
All in by Ave o'clock!
The Brlghta commenced two daya ago,
They "re got in twenty load 1
It's not our style to oome behind,
We used to ahow the road.
Let Oecrge and ' Shortey' take the earns,
Den ma will stow away.
9ie darkey 11 pitch and 111 fork off
Let. make her smoke to-day 1
We ought to have an extra band .
To keep the rake a-going.
But men are scarce ; I spoee I'm booked
To do this season's mowing.'1
Off went the boys, but in the door,
In pink and white and bine,
8tood little Kit, and pouting asked,
" What's Tom and me do?"
She raised her dainty pinafore
With a half-mimicked sob
The farmer laughed and hooked his belt :
I s:pect you'll boss the Job."
But a shadow changed the fanner's face,
For with one arm at rest
Across the gate a soldier leaned.
One sleeve pinned to his breast ;
He looked up to t'ie morning hills
Why does the soldier grieve 7
Thst mention of an " extra hand" -
Has twitched the idle sleeve.
They had not thought of work for Tom ;
'Mid labors near and far
Tom sat beside his window '
And read about the war ;
For Tom had done the country's work.
And to these patriot boys
The glory of the empty sleeve
Turned plows snd hoes to toys.
The hsle old Buck had bustled on,
Had scolded, laughed, snd snng
He had his ups and downs and rounds
Like most folks old or young
He had not marked Tom's thoughtful moods
Nor felt that ought was wrong,
Btlt something told the soldier boy
His furlough was too long.
" Father," he said with softening eyes,
T just a year to-day.
And twas a morning Just like this
I fell in Honor's way ;
Gome, lively now 1' the Colonel cried
Your words brought his to mind ;
I wss nt first nor bravest then,.
But I didn't lag behind.
1 sowed my blood on Glory 'a field
And now I reap her soil ;
I sit and eat an idler's bread
' Won by a fathers toil !
What has the Country done for me 7
Wbst can the Country do 7
Sly pension would not pay the cost
Which here I sm to you.
It would buy a hurdy-gurdy,"
He cried with a bitter sneer,
And 111 grind a hurdy-gurdy
Bather than loiter here -
w No, Tom," the old man said, " grudge not"
nut he coma say no more ;
He tried again: " While I've a crust "
But broke down as before.
The soldier leaned across the gate,
The teams were now put to
" Come, lively there I" called Jovial George,
" We're waiting now for you."
Tho farmer strolled among the teams,
But he fumbled st their name,
He raised the collars, smoothed their necks,
And softly called their names ;
At length he said: Turn out the beasts;
I feel a little down ;
Just look to things about the place,
I'm going up to town."
Here was the strangest oome-to-paea
That farm had ever seen ;
The boys looked on with startled eyes
And said : " What does he mean ?''
Tom came among them, sad and strange,
They looked to him for light ;
He sighed : perhaps he did not know
No doubt it was all right ;
Dennis had better take the spade
And finish out his ditch
And Sam, there is some hoeing yet
Here in the onion pstch."
The darkey vowed the hay would spoil,
There wa'nt no sort of sense
But Tom walked off and heard no more,
Bat strolled slong the fence.
Soon n. called George and Charley round
To where the mower stood ;
They got the axe and plane and saw,
And fixed some bits of wood
To the long lever whioh in place
- The M cutter-bar" rstains;
Now Tom can work it with his foot
- While one hand holds the reins
That night around the supper board
When each was in his place.
And little Kit with folded hands
Had said the evening grace,
Good farmer Bock took from his breast
A paper legal cap,"
Which, while he wiped his spectacles,
He laid down in his lsp.
We will not wait its reading now.
And you may well surmise
The farmer read but poorly
There was something in his eyes;
But twas a strong " conveyance,"
With "whereas" and wherefrom:"
Till George and Charley came of age
' It gave the farm to Tom.
M For Kit and me, we'll keep the house,"
The farmer said and smiled ;
A golden roof protects his head
- Who rears a grateful child.
I've done my work, and in my band
. God's blessings have increased ;
A (arm like this, I think, may keep
One gentleman at least !"
Theirs was the quickest harvest-homo
That season, near or far.
For Tom had tried the arts of peace
Before the art of war ;
And fanner Bright told farmer Buck
As his good hand he shook,
w The temper of the broken spear
Shows in the pruning hook."
Tom got the latest implements
And seed from Washington
The Colonel was in Congress now
And glad to help him on
The younger boys with livelier will
Took hold upon the land,
And love and faith and pluck and skill
Made good the hand.

THE FRESHET.
On a bend of the Connecticut river
the old mill stood. It was a pleasant
landmark to the traveler who journeyed
by jolting; stage from town to town
a relief to rippling river and leafy foli
age, otherwise extending monotonously,
as many an artist testified who came to
BKetcn the spot. And yet the mill,
beaming bright in the sunlight as it did.
its wheel merrily beating time to the
music of industry, had a dark history
one of deceit, mystery and wrong.
Of the miller, the older inhabitants of
the adjacent villages, thongh they had
come for years to joke, and gossip, and
do business with Joseph Godfrey, none
were ever heard to say that they liked
the man. It was not that he was churlish
and taciturn, or was deficient in joviality
or hospitality. No laugh rang louder in
the mill when village-wit told a comic
tale ; no one seemed to bo more anxious
than the miller to acquire the reputation
of being entertaining and a good fellow,
When winter brought the season of
friendly visits, no house afforded better
cheer and a warmer welcome than the
miller's. But though the laugh was
loud and apparently hearty, it often
ended' in a harsh and bitter tone, as if
some disagreeable recollection had sup
planted mirth, or a fiendish 'nought had
abstracted jollity and substituted malice.
The eye, too, that one moment seemed
full of fun, would suddenly quiver as if
with defiance. Then, too, in the midst
of hilarity, an expression of pain would
pass over the miller's usually rubicund
face, the color would forsake his cheeks,
he would swallow hard, as if strangled
by an unseen hand, and would mutter
disjointed syllables, unintelligible, but
terrible even in their in coherency.
"That man (Godfrey) has certainly
something terrible on his mind," the
parson would say, when the strange ex
hibition of the jolly miller suddenly
becoming a hysterical sufferer was pre
sented. To which random remark some old
man would answer : " He says that he
was troubled with fits when he was
child ; and thongh they never bother
him now, they left the strange nervous
ness we have all seen. Still, after all,
he did "not come fairly by the mill, and
't is strange that old Butgers was never
heard of."
" Old Butgers," as he was named by
those who reniemliere.1 him, was the
owner of tho mill before Godfrey came
. into possession. Kutgrrs had been mar
ried ; but one terrific night, when th
fiend of the storm was abroad, tho rain
pouring down as if asecond deluge were
threatened, and the wind whirling away
everything tliat obstructed its ravaging
path, tho old mill, undermined by the
treacheious river and assaulted by tho
pitiless tempest, was Bwept away, its
massive timbers scattered as if they had
lwn -'"'F,. its ruins strewing the adja
cent field.
When the storm abated, they found
tho corpse of Butger's wife dreadfully
mangled, covered with the heavy stones
of the foundation. In her arms, which
were clasped tightly to her breast, was
bundle of clothes, tho garments of her
son ; but no mangled form of innocence
incarnate was there. The powers of the
air had snatched the object of her dying
;
a
a
care from her arms, and slung it into the
river in a bend of which the little dead
body was found lying in a shallow pool,
three days after, by its father, who had
been absent from home on the night of
horror.
Bntgers never prospered after this.
His afflictions seemed greater than he
could bear. True, the null was rebuilt,
the neighbors again flocked to their old
rendezvous, the miller was even said to
be making money faster than he had
done before. But like some once noble
but now decaying tree, though the top
touches the sky, and its branches, far
stretching, seem to betoken great vivaci
ty, is afflicted with a general withering
of its leaves, Butgers wss blasted at
heart. He became moody, sullen,
morose, avoided the companionship of
those whom before he had esteemed, and
at last tried to drown the poignancy of
bitter recollection in strong drink.
It was at this time that Joseph Godfrey
came to the mill. Young and strong he
waty but gaunt as if famished. To But
gers he applied for work enough to keep
him from starving. Butgers, whose ear,
even in his bitterest moments, was never
deaf to the appeal of the suffering,
listened to the story of the unfortunate ;
and from that time Godfrey became an
inmate of the milL More, he became a
companion indeed, tho only one of
poor Butgers, the miller. The two were
seldom separate. They became attached
with an affection apparently surpassing
the love of brothers.
In a few weeks there was a wonderful
improvement in the appearance of God
frey. The sunken cheeks and gaunt
form filled up, the harried look gave
place to the smile of contentment, the
dejected air was suj -planted by tlie ap
pearance of comfort.
Happy would it have been had there
been a like improvement in his employer.
Alas 1 Butgers was becoming worse and
worse. He no longer troubled himself
even about business. His days were
spent in listlessness, or in a maudlin
state he would wander among tne woods,
the bottle for a companion, staying till
dusk, when Godfrey would go in search
of him. Often was Godfrey seen bring
ing home on his bock his helplessly in
toxicated employer.
About a year passed from the time
of Godfrey's arrival at the mill. But
gers was now a poor, broken-down
wretch, fit for nothing, unless half tipsy,
then quarrelsome and capricious, insult
ing his friends, and often peculiarly
bitter against Godfrey. The latter, how
ever, never lost his temper, but excused
the conduct of his employer by saying
that the old man had been sorely tried.
This exhibition- of good nature had
always the reverse of a soothing effect
on Butgers. He would on these occa
sions stamp and rave, and curse and
relent.
What have you to sav on the subject ?
Who told you to speak, you miserable
beggar! 1 saved you from starvation
Come here, tall 1 spit upon you I
Godfrey would then lift up his friend,
spite of his struggles, as if he were a
child, and carry him to an inner apart
ment in the mill, whence he would
emerge only when far gone in intoxi
cation. One day when Butgers came home in
a good-natured state of semi-intoxication,
he perceived Godfrey standing in a cen
ter of a group of amused listeners, re
lating a laughable annecdote. Butgers
staggered up and listened, and iangning
heartily at some absurdity, said, in a
maudlin fashion, " lou re a good leuow,
A good miller, too, thanks to your hum
ble servant What'll you give me for
the mill ? 1 11 sell it on easy terms.
must get away from here. I'm going to
the devil ever since Oh, my poor
wife and my poor baby t Name your
price. I must get away from here,
where everything reminds me. Name
your price."
Godfrey felt uneasy at the commence
ment of Butgers' speech, but began to
listen with a pleased earnestness quite
noticeable when his employer offered to
sell the mill. When all eyes turned on
him his face was flushed, his eye beamed
with glftd eagerness, his lip quivered,
and he looked like a man who had sud
denly accomplished a long-toiled-for
object.
"Toull never leave this place," he
hoarsely answered.
"Won't I, thought Give me what
money you have. Don't shake your
bead. 1 know yon nave some though
believe it's mine by right. Ill give you
your own time to pay the balance ; I'll
at once go away, and never trouble you
more, so long as you keep- your part of
tne bargain between us.
Godfrey now hastily named a price,
and terms were agreed to. drawn up.
duly recorded and witnessed, and finally
put in form by a lawyer of the nearest
town. During the merrymaking that
followed, Butgers signified his intention
of going to Boston to live with some
distant relative till a chance offered for
his going into business.
It was resolved that there should be
merrymaking in honor of their friend
about to leave them. So it wob arranged
that the largest room in the mill should
bo cleared, to be used as a dancing
room. The day before the appointed
festival, Godfrey appeared in the village
tavern and said that Butgers, in a fit of
his usual perversity, had departed the
previous night, and that he promised to
come back within a month, when the
merrymaking would take place.
No one thought it strange, as Butgers
had become utterly unreliable of late.
But when a month had passed, and there
was no appearance of the truant, some
of the more inquisitive began to ask
such questions as, " Was Butgers sober
when he left?" "Did he take all his
olothes with him i" Did he go afoot, or
now f .. . . . .
To all which Godfrey answered that
t - t s -,, " t ,
nis menu, was neitner orunn, nor ye
sober, when he left ; that he took a small
bundle with him, but left most of his
wardrobe behind: that he started on
foot, intending to take the stage at the
cross-roads.
These answers were given in an off
hand, impatient way, but good-naturedly
enough ; but when some of the more
tedious and pertinacious repeated ques
tions, in various forms, regarding But
ger's sudden leave, Godfrey would start
and stammer, grow uneasy ; and at last,
with an oath, would tell the persevering
inquirers that was all he knew about it,
and there was no accounting for the
freaks of drunken fools, or the obsti
nacy of inquisitive ones, and that when
Butgers came back he would tell all
about the matter.
Months passed, and there was no word
from Butgers, nor information of him
from any one else.
Godfrey, meantime, by his genial
manners, had won the good will of his
neighbors ; and, as they saw that he
irritated by inquiries concerning But
gers, they forebore to press the subject
Ouo wag, it is true, celebrated for his
conceit and his high appreciation of his
own shrewdness, came ono day to tho
miller, and said that ho had seen But
gers half an hour ago, and that ho said
he intended to Rtop at the mill in the
course of tho morning. The effect
this announcement on Godfrey was x
culiarly strange. He started back as
bitten by a snake, leaned against the
mill us if paralyzed, grew pale, and
trembled as if afflicted with ague ; Uien
recovering himself in a moment
rushed at tho young man, seized him by
the collar, and exclaiming, " I'll teach
you to play tricks on me ! I'll make you
as helpless as Butgers before I've done
with you !" pummelled the jester till
howled alternately for help and mercy.
This little episode effectually stopped
the months of impudent inquirers.
None after that day approached the sub
ject except in a cautious manner, and
then they were subdued with a short
''Goodness knows," or "I d.03't know,
.
do you?" or "Butgers can have the
money whenever he likes to come for it"
I ears passed, uodtrey grew pros
perous, liutger s name was almost for
gotten. A new generation grew up, who
knew little and cared less for the history
of the eccentric owner of the old mill.
Eccentric he was. Beady ever to assist
the unfortunate with his purse, he never
ventured near a scene of distress. He
had been known to fly like one possessed
from the place where a laborer had been
struck by a falling brick, and received a
deep wound. One of nis intimates
dying, expressed a wish to see him.
After repeated messages, Godfrey went
When he was ushered into the sick-room
and saw the eyes of the dying man
turned anxiously toward him, with an
oath and a yell Godfrey burst from the
room, and raved like a madman along
the road. He supported the family,
however, after all was over. It was re
marked, to, that thongh Godfrey con
tributed freely to religious objects, ne
never entered a place of worship. . Con
sequently, the pious shook their heads
mysteriously, but said nothing, as the
miller had plenty of defenders, the re
cipients of his benefits or the partakers
of his kindly offices.
Godfrey never married. No railer
against the fair sex was he. Reputed
well-to-do, and being of good appear
ance, he was by no means an object of
disgust with tne unmarried fair. lot
none of them could boast of ever receiv
ing a special visit from him, but one,
and she the daughter of an old fanner in
embarrassed circumstances, whom God
frey had befriended. The gossips had
declared it a matcn ; out tne visits were
suddenly broken off and neither of the
principals would declare the reason.
" There were some men who dare not
marry, was all the answer could be got
from him, even by his most intimate
friends, when they advised him to take a
wife and settle down comfortably.
And yet the sight of an infant seemed
to transngure nis somewnat severe iea
tures. He would take the chubby hand
in his loving palm, kiss it pat the velvet
cheek, and loosing into tne dreamy
eyes, would, sighing, mutter, " How in
nocent 1 We were all so once." Some
said that on these occasions a tear would
gather in the miller's eye; but most
laughed at the idea. For Godfrey was
not of tho tender mood. Thus when
any one ventured to say that the mill
was old, and tne lounoanons crumuung,
the water undermining the walls, and
that it should be repaired, assuredly it
would be carried away by a freshet :
" JI;L lb gU W LUW UOV11 W1U1 1143 UWAICi f
It will last my time."
And then would loliow sucn remarks
that the astonished listener, looking on
Godfrey's countenance, would perceive
that his eyes were glaring like a wild
beast's, his nostrils distended with pas
sion, and his jaws quivering with sup
pressed emotion.
"The freshet! the freshet!" is the
theme of conversation in the old mill as
each gossip brings tidings of devastation
worked by the storm along the borders
of the rivers of New England.
Look to your old walls and crumbling
foundations I" says an acquaintance to
Godfreythe miller. "See, the water is
rising ; and now, good heaven 1 the frail
old building reels and shakes with the
wind. I would not stay here to-night
for all your money."
"Who asks you, coward 1 ill remain
here, though the river ran into the win
dows, and it blew blasts from Topnet.
"But you will drowned to a certainty
if you stay much longer," urged his
companion.
' WelL what is that to any ono if 1 am
determined to brave tne consoquences f
While they are speaking the building
shakes from cellar to garret, and a rot
ten beam cracks with a noise like a pistol-
report; the workmen are struck with
panic, they seize their garments, and,
with the visitors, rush out into tho pelt
ing rain and howling blast They reach
a rising ground and turn round to look.
The Connecticut rages like Niagara's cat
aract White-crested waves surge as if
it were port of the territory of old
ocean. Borne down on the current flow
ing with the swiftness of a spectral racer,
are fragments el nouses, factories, ma
chinery, boats. Now a cradle is swept
past into the abyss of mist and foam
now a human face glances for a moment
from between the foamy billows, and is
hidden forever. Beasts of the field look
piteonsly at the fast-receding shores, and
dogs howl hopelessly as they are swept
to destruction.
Ruin is written on everything ou the
earth, and the dark and threatening
heavens appear as if eager to repeat the
tragedy of the world s early history.
"Come, haste, or you will be too
late I" they cry to the miller as the build
ing totters to one side.
" Away, cowards ! comes on the blast
"I will see it out!"
Now the mill is surrounded with the
raging stream. It is evident the founda
tions are sapped, for more prone than
Pisa's tower leans the rotten fabric.
A blast that causes the most sturdy to
fall, clinging to the underbrush ; a rush
of the river that makes the spectators
fear the drj land is about to be swal
lowed up ; a yell, a crash, and then ex
cruciating silence ; and when, taking ad
vantage of the momentary calm, the
watchers look up, tho old mill-wheel is
all that remains.
They hasten from the spot overawed
by the catastrophe. They relate the vis
ion of horror. Crowds hasten toward
the spot but between them and the old
mill there is a great gulf of seething,
hungry billows. What is man's boasted
power in the presence of the omnipo
tence of Nature?
Days elapse. The flood abates, the
foundations of the old mill are revealed.
Men search for a pallid corpse, but in
vain. Instead, they find, jammed in be
tween huge boulders, part of the mill's
foundations, a skeleton, and within the
bony grasp of its clenched, fleshlcss fin
gers, is a small tobacco-box. This they
open, and find a paper still decipherable.
Wondering, they read, after much
trouble It is the note given by God
frey for the balance of tie price of the
mill.
The skeleton is all that remains of the
long-missing Butgers. Some of the old
men recognized it by the peculiar con
formation of the jaw and teeth, and by
a scar on the skull. Murder had been
done, but the murderer was beyond hu
man justice.
They bury the remains of the victim
to avarice, and think forgivingly of the
culprit as they recall his atttempts at
atonement remembenug tnat only tne
Allseeing knows hnmau weakness, and
can fitly estimate the infernal power of
temptation.

AN INDIANA CYCLONE.
Remarkable Incidents of the Tornado—
Miraculous Escapes.
The Crawfordsville Journal gives the
following particulars of the tornado 1
that recently passed over Fountain
county, Ind. :
The storm of Tuesday evening.
which passed high above us, visited
some sections south and west of us with
great destruction, passing oyer the
northern part of Vermilion county and
the southern part of Fountain, in the
shape of a furious tornado. It seems to
have come from the Northwest first
striking near Perrysville and expending
its rrrcatest force on the farm of a Mr.
Marshall, about a mile and a half north
of Harveysburg, Fountain county. It
had travelled in about an easterly direc
tion and seemed to strike the ground
with such force that it rebounded like a
rubber ball, skipping a farm or two, and
XI J '-1 - - ' 1 ,
uieii DbmuuLj aguui wiui great viuieiuxs.
It cut an average swath of about a quar
ter of a mile in width, which, however,
narrowed down at the most destructive
point on Mr. Marshall's farm, to about
forty rods. In its destruction of life and
property, probably no tornado has ever
visited the country with such calamitous
results, in the hrst port of its course it
took down the residence of a man named
Mack, and unroofed barns belonging to
Solomon Jones, William Chenowethand
Jacob Bitzer. The last named also suf
fered the loss of the roof of his dwell
ing, as did also Abe Uensmgor. VI
the families in the path of tho destroyer,
S. E. Sowers, in Fountain county, is the
most unfortunate. They had lust come
from the burial of a child that day, and
of that household of five persons, but one
survives, a little boy with both his arms
broken. Mrs. Sowers, a niece who was
temporarily stopping with the family,
and another person were killed instant
ly. Mr. Sowers, Sr., died Wednesday
night and his' married son was reported
dead Thursday morning. The house is
a mass of ruins, which is the case of
about everything on the place. As far
as known, the only other case attended
with loss of life was tnat of Mr. tsemple.
As before stated, the tornado's fury was
at its -maximum on the farm of Mr,
Charles Marshall. Mr. Marshall heard
it coming, and immediately proceeded
to put his family in the cellar. All were
in but himself and little boy, when tne
wind blew the door shut snd he was
unable to open it They then started
for the smoke-house, hoping to get in
the cellar, but the building was blown
over on them and lodged on a meat
barrel, which saved them from being
crushed. They were all unhurt Every
thing in the shape of grain, timber, etc
is literally swept from this farm. Mr.
Marshall said that he had 2,500 bushels
of wheat of which ha does not think
there are now 25 left The wind carried
the sheaves up in the air until it was
almost black with them, whirling them
around in large circles as if they were
issuing from a largo funnel. The woods
are filled and sown with the wheat All
his fine timber was destroyed. This in
itself is a great loss, as it was said to
have been of a very superior and hand
some growth. In one place a great
amount of earth was dug up and some
beets laid out on the ground. A large
boulder, the lowest estimate of its
weight being 1,600 pounds, was moved
several feet One house was blown to
pieces, and the floor found over a mile
away. A very valuable orchard, one of
two in that section of country, was com
pletely twisted to pieces. .A large
amount of clothing and bedding was
blown into the woods and torn into
shreds. One man was lucky enough in
his misfortune to find an old shoe out in
his stablo in which he had deposited $99.
4 He also had some silver pieces which
were blown around, but he succeeded in
finding them, all but one piece. Sev
eral horses were badly injured. Mr.
Marshall lost one of considerable value.
One man had just finished setting up
tbresbing-macliine, and before anything
could be dono it was struck by the hurri
cane and not a vestige of the machino was
left to mark the place where it had stood.
As the storm came up, David Pearson's
wife with the children sought safety nn
dor the bed. Just as they all had got
under the bed the chimney was blown
into the room, and would inevitably
have killed them all hod it not been for
their timely escape. One man had just
unhitched his horse from his buggy and
the buggy was taken np, capsized and
carried away as if it had been a mere
straw in the wind.
Horrible Gallows Scene.
is
Green Henry, a negro, was recently
executed for murder at Columbus,
Miss., and a more bungling lob of hang-
in ft has rarely been witnessed in this
country. We extract from the local
papers :
He wore white pantaloons, and he was
enveloped in a horrid black robe that
trailed at nis feet. lie was cieariy agi
tatedhis lips kept moving in prayer.
He looked around as they were pinion-
ins his hands and feet, and, being asked
what he wanted, mentioned the name
CoL Meek. CoL Meek came forward,
and Green Henry bade him adieu.
The cape of the black robe was drawn
forward over the doomed man's head
twenty minutes past 12 o'clock, noon.
Quickly the bhenll and nis attendant
stepped from the platform; a Deputy
jerked the lever that supported the scaf
fold from it fastenings, and gave tne
floor of the scaffold a kick.
An unearthly groan arose from the

Ground beneath the balcony of the mil.
Everybody was horrified; the Sheriff
could scarcely move. A surgeon felt the
pulse of the fallen man and said he was
alive. The colored .Deputy and an as
sistant raised Henry, earned nim racx
to the balcony, and removed tne duck
caoe from his faee. His brow was cov
ered with perspiration, though he did
not appear frightened. He was alive
and perfectly conscious, and continued
to murmur, " Jesus, save me !" There
was a slight abrasion on his necs, and
was spitting blood. At this point a tele-
cram came from Gov. Ames, wnom ixu.
Meek and otners nad oeen importuning
for Green Henry 8 life. It said :
cannot interfere: show this to Mr. Meek
and others."
lit this time the knot had beenretied,
and Henry was assisted to rise. His
feet pinioned, he advanced as well as
could to the center of the platform. As
the Sheriff adiusted the noose, neury
said. "Don't choke me." The Sheriff
loosened the knot, and Henry askod,
" Got it tied right ?" " les," said the
Sheriff, and he asked a doctor if it was
not right. The doctor directed the knot
to be placed further to the rear of the
ear. which was done.
Tho Sheriff stepped back, the Deputy
touched the lever, and Green Henry
swung into the air at thirty-eigut nun
utes passed 12 o'clock.
A thrill of horror ran through the mul
titude, and a number of negro women
fainted.
The body, after the drop, was con
vulsed several times; the shoulders
shrugged, tho feet were drawn np. The
neck was broken; the skin of the throat
was cut, and a small stream of blood
trickled down his breast. The drop was
feet.
After six minutes a doctor felt Henry's
pulse; he still Uved. He hung fourteen
minutes, and then, at eight minutes to
o'clock, the doctor said he was dead.
The custom of supplying grog

again, and is, singularly enough, accom

BREADSTUFFS.
There was quite an active movement in the
grain markets during the past week, and the
changes in values were frequent and quite se
vere. The markets have been what are called
"weather markets," the condition of the
weather being the main influence gov
erning the .course of prices. With
rain, values wonld invariably advance,
while pleasant weather would always
exert a reverse influence. The movement was
almost wholly on speculative account, the
shipning interest doing but little in the way of
buying. Spring wheat shows an increase
in the stock in store, but corn and
oats show a decrease. Darin tr the cloeinc
dars of the week the greater part
of the advance eained earlv was lost, altnouim
the closing quotations of wheat and oats show
an improvement of from 3(5c per bo.
Corn was higher, bnt closed at lower figures.
Cash oats were scarce, and sold np to 61c, the
the offerings being inadoquate to meet the
wants -of the local trade. Itye was 79c
higher, and barley for Beptembor closed about
6(57c higher. '

Bigamy Extraordinary.
A Boston correspondent of the New
York Evening Post relates the following
instance of remarkable matrimonial
duplicity : I heard recently of a case of
bigamy in the neighboring city of Lynn,
which, I believe, has not got mentioned
in the newspapers, but which is prob
ably one of the most remarkable on
record in this country. The husband 6f
two wives in this case was a resident of
Lvnn, who at the outbreak of the war
obtained a clerkship in the Treasury De
partment at Washington. He continued
toholdthispositionuntilbisdeath, which
occurred not very long ago. When he
went to Washington he left a wife ba-
hind mm, she having the care of a rela
tive with whom she lived, and not wish
ing to take np her residence at the
Capital. This arrangement was continued
for fourteen years, the husband making
an annual visit and passing his vacation
with his wife at her home in Lynn. The
character of the man was respectable,
and no one ever suspected that he had
unlawful marital relations. On the oc
casion of his last visit to his home he
was taken violently sick, and after a
short illness he died. A day or two be
fore his death a letter was received from
Washington directed to him, and as he
was unconscious his wife opened it. It
informed her that the man who lay dying
before her had another wife in Washing
ton, who was the mother of two children.
It was the first intimation she ever re
ceived of the fact (which she learned
upon further inquiry) that he had been
living for several years in a very quiet
manner with a lady in Washington, who
was, moreover, respectable and utterly
unaware that she was the wife of a big
amist. All the facts in the care are fully
substantiated.
Bigamy Extraordinary. Crop Prospects---Advice to Farmers.
[From the Prairie Farmer.]
f
Our crop reports on the last page of
tnis paper tell a story tnat is doubly sup
plemented by later dispatches, received
by the daily press from all parts of the
fcroutn western country, including ooutn
ern Illinois, Missouri, Indiana and Ohio.
Such rains have never been known, or
at least not since the Western country
became so productive and important as
it is to-day. Tne rivers are overflown,
carrvinir destruction alone their vnlleva.
and dismay to the thousands of inhabi
tants. The nnharvestcd crops, even so
far north as Central Illinois, have suffered
untold damage, and the growing crop of
corn is in a very precarious condition,
An earlv frost will do it in-erjamble in
jury. In view of the situation of affairs,
we feel justified in saying that general
caution should be exercised by the farm-
intr public in marketinpr their crops. In
fact, we would advise the holding of all
farm crops, hay included, until a turn in
the aspect of the weather is experienced,
and in fact then it is a question whether
or not tho prospect will justify a demand
for an advance in price. City and com
mercial papers devoted to the interests
of consumers rather than producers, may
rail at this advice, but we, as exponents
of the labor interests, especially the
interests of the farmers of Uio country,
muse ao wnai we aeem our amy in uie
matter. A. hint is, porhaps, salncient,
but we suggest that it is no idle hint, bnt
one full of significance, iakinf' all tne
tidings regarding the crops at home and
abroad that we give to our readers, we
ask of them to well consider whether or
not it is best to exercise great caution in
the contracting of their crops for 18 V5.
