You know I lost my fnthernnil mothcr

On l'alm Sunday ho wcnt with mo to
thc savinns bank. My namo was writtcn

This rcflcction reassured mc. I showcd
my book to my companion again, and hu

That night whcn wc lay down sido by

"You aud I cisu bo rich, and will havc
nothing to do but to scc the world and

Hc addcd that wc must go to C'a'ifornia,

"Vcry good," I answercd, "but who

"Uaven't you your bank book?"
"You call it a triflo yoursclf."
"Y7c will makn somcthing bcttcr of

At Ihcso words I bcgan to trcmble.
"My fricnd," said I, "this ought uot

"I ct mc alone," repliod hc; "I will

with trcmbling I watchcd him changc

ccmcd as if my heart was btirsting.
Thcn hc took n little knifc and scratciicd

Xovcrthclcss, I wcnt with tho young

shc. "8t. I'ctcr is our patron, and for

Cathcrinc, my guidc, tliat ho had othcr
pieparations to makc, nnd bado hcr io

"It will bo hard for you," said I to
Cathcrinc, "to lcavo thcse beautiful

"I havo plcnty of timc in which to

Atthcso woids I could no longcr find

Ho called his wifo, and thcn turtiing
to mc, s.iid that ho should search mo
whilo his wifc did tho samo to Catha
rine. And sceing that honcst maidcn out
raged by Mich odious suspicion, I
yielded mysclf to his hands. liut I
novcr can tell what I felt at that momcnt.
I fclt no longcr likc a inan, or even a
slavc, but like sotno vilc auimal. An act
of crucl unjustico was committod
against mc. After this, tho fault of
which I was guilty mysclf sccmcd but a
pctty and childish thtng.
My anger grew still greater when
another scrvant suggested tliat Catha
rine might havo liiddcn tho diaminds in
hcr halr, and I saw the poor girl as jvile
as dcath, with hcr braids all uubouud.
Xaturally, tlic counselor found nothing
on Catharine or on mc. I rcmcmbcr that,
1 in parting, I said to thc young girl:
I "liu patlcnt; 1 will mako up to you a'.
' you havc sullcrcd throngh mc."
The alTront I had sull'crcd paraljvcd

"and asked me to do so for him." At

1 "You may have committcd somosccret

sulTcved a an allliction."
i T never had folt so happy bcforc. I

and would give her a beautiful cairiage,
harnecd to fotir horsos, and she prom-
j ised to bc faithful to me. should I como

sccmcd nothing in comparisou with tho
humiliation I had sufTered.
l'alm Sunday having comc, I dccided,
1 on the instanco of tho I'alatin. to draw
my money, in order to try my fortuno iu
thc world and mako Catharino my wifo.
I wishcd tho I'alatin to nccompany mo to

as if it ncvcr could bo shakcn oll.
At last my turn came. The counselor
put on his snectaclcs and lookcd at my

monotonous t:ckings of tho clock. My
heart knocked hard agaiijst my sidc.

Thc gcnornl Imprcsslon that the cata

making n mcal they will drag tho rem

carcass of any kind placcd in the woods
will call to thc spot every catamount in

charactcristic of the animal is taken ad

Tho mucting of two or morc cata

if tho sounds of tho combat aro hcard

The other day Ed Quick, thc pionccr
huntcr of tho Knob rogion, was a wit-
ncss to a fight of this kind between two
big catamounts. Ho was hidiug behind
a tree "laying for' wildcats to como to
the dcad body of a shccp ho had placcd
in tho woods to draw thcm togcthcr.
The animals both appcarcd on thc sccue
at ono timc. The huuter was not tifty

bcgan at onco over tho carcass, and sud
dcnly ono of the catamounts sprani: upon
thc othcr. The battlo wagod licrcely
Irom thc start, and botli animals secmed
dctermiucd to mako it one to the death.
Tho huntcr watchcd the fight for ten
miuutes, aud then cndcd it with a rillc
ball. At a momcnt whcn both animala
wcro clinchcd closely together Quick
lirod. Thc bullot cntered tho back of
onc catumount's head, crashcd through

buried ltsclf iu the othcr ono'i brain,
killing both auiir.als at a shot.
In tho old days of paying bounties for
wildcat scalps, tho trujiper produccd his
scalps bcforc a justice of the pcaco, made
allidavit that ho had captured tho
animals, nad rcccivcd a certilicato to
that clTect. Ho retaiued the scalps, and
it is told of many an old trappcr
that ono lot of scalps scrved to securo
him bounties from the county evcry
ycar for many years, or until long uso
woro them out. In tho days of wolves,
no huntcr who had tho iuterest of him
sclf and his fellows at heart would kill
a "manitny" wolf, which was a sho wolf
with young. Their litters wcro always
largc, nud they keiit the stnck of scalps

Teachinjr a Dog1.
Miss Cathorine I!ao cxplaincd in a re
cent chit chat one science in Ahcrdeen,
ovcr thcsei, tho way in which she got a
dog, within threo wcoUs. to ring a bell.
She bcgan by letting "Tiny" smcll tho
bouo of a rotton chop and then tied tho
botio to thc string of tho bell. At lirst
"Tiny" was in a t:reat trenior, but by
taking her very kindly aud stroking her,
sho found that sho could induco her to
pull at tho bono and so rlng tho bell.
After that she tied a small pfeco of wood
to tho string, but tho dog would not
lnill it. At last sho pulled hcr gcntly
back until the bell rang, and in this
wav, iu tho short courso of thrco wccks,
with not moro than ono or two lcs
sons a day, the dog would iro and ring
the bell b'y being told" 'Tiny,' go nnd
ring tho bell," at tho cnd of three
weeks sho gavo an ovoning party, and
during tho ovoning they wcro all olectri
tied by tho sudden and violont ringing
of tho boll. "Tiny" hid been ncglectcd
to bo indulgcd with any tid-bit, nnd hau
taken this meaus of receiving attention.
