Hiram! seak t where re you? the ktood by the barn door uow, aud it was wide opeu, a winiutf iu llio wiud ou iu rcat dark biugei; and withiu it was all ailciit and (Luk. Tknia not a tound ool a tliuiuivr of light (rom Ibe lantern. Surely it be were there, bo could ee hi in, or hear him at leat, even if the lantern had gone out. Oh, Hiram! the cried, don't ictre me; don't try lo tear me; for indeed I'm turning iolnt. I'm to There Mie paused, alruck with dumb terror. Sbo bad taken a hlep lorward, tud her foot had klruck kouething soft and heavy tbat lay ou the baru floor kouiclhing that did not move, but it felt a though it ought (o have douo to. Tuo f&iulncei bad gone; iu ita place was tbat horror which we all kuow, aud which it diffetcut from any personal terror; and far ore. She Bneisc3.tvha(J( wa ter foot had touched. bo did not utter hia name now. She knelt down and stretched out her hand aud felt about. The first tbiug that she touched was a cold limp hand, that foil Inertly over hori s the lifted it. Then Lo felt upward from It, and touched a face, alto cold. She gathered it up to her breast. Dark at it was she knew well enough tbat It was the head that had tested there to often; her baud went through hit curia aud a little uioau es caped her.' Dead, she sobbed, dead, dead, dead. Aud then her voice came back in a wail that rang out upon the night air aud brought from tbe kitchen Mkdgo, the- help, aud ber beau, lieu, who bad been lingering over a parting there. Ben, a great alalwtrt fellow, lifted tbe tuaater in bis arms, and carried him into the kitchen. How Sara Fielding got thete the never kuew, but as tke knelt by the long settee aud wondered whether witb all those babies up stairs it was right lor her to pray to die, too, hope came back to her iu a word from Ben. Missus, ho tald, boss ain't dead bo ain't no such thing; he's stunned like. No doobt be'i burt mighty bad, bat Lor', no ool dead. I wouldn't tay so if it warn't true. I'll fetch him into bed, missus, aud go for tbe doctor. He'll come to he'll como to; I tell you ho'Jl come to. Then it teemed to tbe poor woman as if heaven had opened its gates and given hef a jflimpi of glory. - She beat over him at bo lay ou bit pil low, aud beard the clatter ef the horses' boots over tbe stony road, dulled by tbe plank" of the wooden bridge, for a while, and then sharper, though fainter, on the highway leading townward, How long It would bo before the doc tor came she did not know. It be were at home, why, soon. If some one else bad called him, wbo could tell? Mean while the bathed tbe poor, bleeding head, while Madge chafed the cold bunds, and with her white lips whUpered foud, com forting words a lo a baby. And at la.t tbe taw. iudced. tbat be lived. More color came to his cheek. His eyes open ed ; but when the tpoke to him he ans wered ber only witb groans. One Of the children bad beeu awaken ed by tbe noise, aud crept dowu ttairs a little white ghost, with a scared face aud aeeine what had banieued, bad awakened tbc rest by her cries. And iu tho uiidst of this tbe door open ed, arid.'thauk heaven!" tbo doctor! but worse than tbat Ben, with horror in hi eyes, aud a hand pointed over bit tboul der toward tbe red glare that flashed up toward tke iky . Madge iiw and' comprehended, aud quietly slipped out afler him. The baru wat on fire; aud while the poor wife withiu the fthutierad room bad one thought only. Will be I love better than tbe world beside live or die? Despite the fruilleis aid that cime too isle, tbougb it was freely offered, baru and stable, bay and cattle, were lj:ked up by tbe devoor Ing 'Haute. ' And all the e Boris of ibe be wildered to save tbe little borneotead aad one poor cow, dragged by Mtdge' faith ful hands into a place ol safely. A poor Tbanktgivinf, for Mrs. Field lug, said many a kindly matron at she beard the newt ntit morning. Yet Sara Fielding wat at that very hour thanking God; for, at tbe doctor went away, be bad pat ul the good wrinkled kaod tbat Lad Kir en ber tho first pooual of medi cine when she was a bthf, aod that bad be id op ber own tablet for ber to took at ia ber new rao ibe rood, and bad patted ber on tb bead, and taid : Kep up your beart, Sara keep up your heart. We'll get blm through jet , You'll not be a widow Iblt time. II would Ur, and what did alas cart) fc.it tbe barn or ttort? Let all go, to that the LaJ titn. But then wat a weary Ume before her dayt of fever ad delirium, dajt of weak Bsitery, wbea tbe ttroog toaa kad twoorne like a fretful t.l!d. fara't round j chrekt grew thin, tud brr hands began to obow their bouts. Often the woodrredl wbelUr she oouid keep op much longer, ! but ahe did ; and, after three mouths' lit- j net, Hirtmgol about acaio, gfjnt aud tailow, and Ume, loo alt bough that: would pat away ia a month or to, the doctor taid and wat well enough biui-j self to uibke it necesiary that ho should he told what bad happened; that bit baru waa burnt, hit bay, bit corn, all bis1 provisions nearly gone, and bit botse and oxen, loo-jul the one dun cow that gave them miik, tied ia a shed that Beo had knocked together, that was all. 1 suppose tny lautern broke in the bay, Hira, besaid, when be could speak. 1 found the door open, aod weut iu, aud there was a man there. I grappled ban, aud be struck me ibst't all I kuow. Either my lauUra did it, or tbe man wis Ibore to Ore the barn. However it wat, It's all over aow. It will take 5 art, you took care of my pocket-book? Darling, she said, have patience. Your pocket-book has riot been found. I've drawn all my little laving to live on. I tkooght you might remember where I always wore it lu my vest, be taid. You kuow that I kept all I bad about mo. There were five hundred dollart in money loo, and receipts 1 dare not lone, for they are signed by rascali. tra, every cbauce I bad of retrieving my losses is gone, tore, forever. I suppose 1 tu robbed at I lay seoaclesa, and I thought my own person better aud tafer tbau any bank.. Look at me now, miserable, crip pled, shaking shadow, tbat auy child could matter. But you'll get ttroug again, taid Sara, and we've the house and the laud. But lliram was too weak to feel auy hope or courage. He took to his bed tgaiu, and hy there ttill when it wat (Una lor a farmer to be busy. However, he did not die, and there wat another convalescence. Sara had not bad timo lo be ill- She dared not. What alio could do blio bad done. But a farm needs Its iualtr. If they raised enough for food that j ear, despite neighborly kindness and Ben's vow to work forever wilbout wnj.'es if need be, that wat all (bey could do. And it was a poor year. No fruit to speak of, vegetables email aud mean, aud corn a disappointment. Moreover one of Fielding's creditors did provo himself a rascal; aod although tho farmer twore to having paid this debt there was no receipt to bo found, and a mortgage of the" laud was tho conso- quence. Ultcu the discouraged man de clared that he wished the thief bad also murdered hliu, and he meant it. But Sara Fielding kept ber courago up, and now that ber busbaud was fairly on his feet, aud had even flung away cane and crutch, would have been perfectly happy could she have made him ao. And thus Thanksgiving came about again, and friends shook their heads onco more, aud taid, poor Mrs. Fielding would have a different Thanksgiving from what she'd been used to. And many invitation! were sent by those who had entertained to freely while they could; hut Hiram would have nouo of them, aud, to tell tbo truth, little toes wero out, aud littlo dresses wcro not fresh and holiday-like. We'll keep Thanksgiving at borne, said Sara Fielding. Thanksgiving I , said Hiram, sadly. Well, my girl, it won't be much of a one, and I can't say that I feel thankful much, cither. And then there ain't any packing, said little Lizzie, aod no turkey. There is a pumpkin, said tbe mother, triumphantly a good one I've kept watch over it. It's all right. lliram groaned, thinking of tbe wagons-full tbat rolled lo market tbo year before. ' And, taid tho comfortable woman, I t hink roast pork with apple sauce as good at lorkey. We bave got two barrels of apple.' ' J shall keep Thanksgiving. 1 wouldu't miss it for any consideration, and lliram, you go to church and take Jack, aud I'll get diuuer, for you, I and Lizzie and Sue. Church! said Hiram. Yes, church, said Sara. Aud she bad ber way. Madge, the faithful, had gone with many years to servico elsewhere, long be fore, and Sara bad no help; and now having tidied the boose, the went out doors to look for eggs. Borne of the chickens had been lost iu the fire, tome bad since died mysterious ly', but there were a few left. But her tcarch was not aa successful as usual. Speckled Cray bad taken to Lidlug her eggs, and according to calculations, there must be thiee or four somewhere. At last she beard a cackle, and looking carefully, eepied Speckled Gray's bead protrndtng from tbe roio of tbe barn. Certain beams and boards bad to fallen at to make a hiding-place for Speckle, and thither sbe wat weeding; ber way. bart Fielding followed ber. An arm's length in, she could tcoby crouching low the great white pearls that wero to make her pumpkin richer. Sbe put in ber hand aud drew them forth four five aud (leu what wat tbat lying thete tbat stained, blackened thing, with glimpses of red leather at tbe edges? Wat It a book? Wat it? yet, It wa a great aoft, fist pocket-book in wblcb Hiram Fielding bad carried bit wealth about bis person, In Li great confidence ia bit own strength and safety. ritra drew it out, and trembling, look ed at It. It wkt warped melted into a wad, but somehow only on tbe outside. At she tore It open, the aw that within, it wat discolored ai stained, hot sol , burnt. TUeir lixtlai fortuoa waa safe; jtbert was bopt And con rage for Hiram, t now. j , It U strange bow much determination j will do. Sara Fielding would Lava faiot ! ed oo tbe ground hot for the spirit witb wblcb she fought away tie wesknrtt thai crtpt over ber; but she did get into her j kitchen without doing it, an ! then the Hang Leraotf upon her kurr aud wept ; and prtjtd tojie'her, aud gmw !roux j agaiu. I aiuull the fjie, a d Utile Jack, hurry- j lug in after lucvling. Ain't it god,j though, ps; diuuer is ready. And I'm ready for it, taid the firmer. ' How bright you ail Uwk, girls. AVhat it It, the one pumpkin? He spoke a little bitterly at he uttered the last words, and drew bit chair to the table. There stood the pork, tbo pota toes, the great golden pie, a dithof applo tauce, aod another covered. What' that? Oh, Jatk! ciicd Sutau. Hueh! taid Liziie. Wlllyoaglvo thinks. Hiram? axkod hit wile. I suppose I ought, said Hiram. We've got a house over at this year. Next per htpt uo matter. lie bent his bead aod uttered hfew words of thanksgiving, thinking of all that a disappointed niau docs think even then. Then he leaned back in bis chair. Why, what's in tho littlo dMi? atked Hiram. Why do you look so? And Sara reached across and lifted tho lid; and Hiram kuew. Everything was safe coupon bonds, (he money, the receipts that of the wicked creditor included. Iu coutrasi with bis state yesterday, Hiram fell him self a rich man, aud be bad tiio opportu nity of starting fair and cveu with tie world sgaiu at least. Sara was not tho only otio dowu whoso checks rsn tears that dsy tears of joy aud thankfulness. Aod It came about, Hiram says to-day, because my Sara kept up her heart so well; was thankful lo heaven for all its mercies, aud mado tho best sho could ol our one pumpkin. CktLU.MKS AM) T(IKAI)UKS. l'rol. Tice of St. Louis wrolo to tho lie publican of that city a striking letter sug gested by the cyclone which destroyed part of the railroad bridgo at Omaha. A donso black cloud cane dowu stream, carrying forward a wilier column stand ing ou tho river with its head iu the clouds. In front tho air is filled witb hail, streams of fire run along tho iron bars and columns of the bridge; but the moment the whirling wator column strikes It the whole is lit up by a blind ing eleclrio glare, ibe bridge vanishes, shoots up to a great height above tho piers, and then is dashed with inconceiv able velocity back into tho river. Largo stones are torn out of the tip-rapping, and shoot up perpendicularly sixty fuct to tbo top of tbo railroad grade. Such is tho lettimony of Johu l'iersou, a Scandi navian, and an uneducated and, therefore, unprejudiced mat), who was practically the only witness ol the imposing aud terrible- spectacle, and who says he thought the end of the world bad come. Picrson is not. laboring under an illu sion; bo reports truly what ho saw and what actually took place. I was charged with laboring under an illusion, when, in (bo summer of 1803, 1 asserted that the steeple of tbe Baptist church, corner of Sixlb aud Locust streets, St. Louis, first shot up into the cloud. Not until the aichilcct declared that it must have been so, and could not have been otherwise, was the correctness of my statement ad mitted. The architect's opinion was based upon tbo imprcgnablo fact that the steeple, when constructed, was let down by brsces twelve feet long into tbe tower, aud this braced frame was pulled up and out without disturbing a stone in the tower. The lurgc stone cross iu tho Cal vary cemetery, weighing several tons, tbat went down in tho North St. Louis tornado last year, went np first, for there was tho upright Iron dowcll that bad been in the socket of tho shaft, testi fying and proving that such was tl e caso, Houses always go down when caught in tbe vortex of a tornado, but those caught in the center, as was Lewis God's at Mt. Carmel, invariably first got up. Wbeu iu tbo East St. Ixmis tornado, tho cloud snatched up a locomotive, carried it over a pond and dropped it down, right side up, the wito by tradition poohed poohed at the assertion tbat it was carried, and declared that it was blown into the pond, notwithstanding not a (race of mch ac tion could be seen la the smooth and lev el sand over which it mast have rolled if such bad beca the fact. The objection tbat not tl! the lightning in the country could lift up the bridge, etch span weighing from five (o to thousand ions, is without force. How did it happen, then, thai the liny electric cloud (hat wa arrested over Langley pond, South Caro Una, on Ihe l'.'th of Angtist, l?7t, formed a waterspout, which lasted for about ten minutes, iu which time it lifted .over 214,000 tons of water, and Ihe cloud, now immensely enlarged and distended, walked off without spilling a drop? Tbat Ibis wss a fact is attested by the railroad engineer, wbo was constructing a railroad across tbe arm of the pood, and who, just before the occurreuce, had put dowu marks showing the height of the water. He fonnd the cloud had lowered Ibe pond 3 7-8 inches, and that the pond covered an area of ''- acres. Oo the Omaha bridge flirnes of firs streamed along oo every bar, pout and column before tbe cyclonic column ah proached, I saw this phenomenon ou the Missouri I'tciflo railroad in tbe terrific ' tbaoder-storm of tbe iili'hl of June 172. A blue Muz-) surge) along tbe rail, which gave off a brilliant erploti jn every time that cloud discharged. This blue name, the charcteri;ic color of negative electricity, was Invoked by the indactlve action of the positive cloud. Th stream of fire oa the bridge were the effects of tbe inductive action of the positive cloud that carried the bail, wind, terrific lijrtlning and thunder that pre- ccded thfl rjekme. But all the tWtrir fni'tjry f the cloud U eoiicenltated to a tiogie p.uul, Ihetpoot, wtiih iof water, bcraute is i otcr lb mor j if it wtre fit land it would be a cku I and dust tpcul. ThU point of foiMcniraliou of energy I approaching the bridge tl lijiht ang'.wi. Whrn It tttiket (he lirjdjje, luttanlly Ibe j rai'nwi! rtpnd, bi-ittghig tbe electricity fiom ocean lo ocean, iu fad, all Uic light ning in tbe country upon tbe bridge, aul the rcnult it t blinding glare of e'lcctiiii light a diK'haige by which Ihe li Jf throws Itself bodily Into the cloud. Tueri" it uo difficulty to grap (he idea, provided wo kuow the first piinclplet ol electric d fTusiou, namely, that between two In misled points electricity cannot patt ex cept being convened by matter. So here the positively electrified cloud and the bridge are ium'atcd. When tho cloud was over the river a column of water wai ruahtinj up into it, conveying negative electricity from tho earth. But when over the biid.'o the negative charge is on the bridge, aud hence the bridgo mutit go np or Ihe cloud must come down. The delusion thai ascribes such phe nomena as this to wind requires no teri- out refutation. Wind i air in motion, and air 1 matter. Wind, is it? Wis it wind in the Iowa tornado that shot the water elm saw-log weighing at least -WO pounds, into the air as though a tniuo had exploded underneath It? Science stulti fied Itself when, as it did, H set Itself about calculating tho velocity of tho wind ucccshary lo accomplish such a feat. Two bundled and forty-nine miles was found to ho the required velocity of the wind. But this was lo be a perpendicu lar wiud, aud as tho log luy Hit ou tho ground, it had no space to start in, but started it mu-t have been with a velocity of 219 miles an hour. Was it wind that shot out tho water from Jerotno Hen drick's well at Mouroo city? Waa 11 wind that shot out tho platform of tbo iron elevator from tho bottom of the shaft iu tho pier of (ho bridgo lu the Kavt St. Louis toinailo? Was it wind that in Ihe samo tornado seized tho iron rails at the end of the sidings tind bent them up like sleigh runners? Was it wind tliut snatched up a barn ueur Avon, 111., on the third of July, 187.1, leaving a man who bad fled to il bewildered to find tho baru gone, yet bo unconscious of any wiud? At Lake city, Ind., iu the tornado of April 7 of tho currcut year, a man in the field, seeing tho tornado coming and his house apparently in Its track, ran lo it to save his family. So clote was the tornado upon his heels wbeu ho got there that, fiudiug ono of tho children in Ibo door, ho snatched it up and ran lo grasp a tree to keep him from being blown away, Was il wiud that, when he threw out his arm to grasp tho body ol the tree, tore up the tree by llio toots so quiedtly and carried it into tho cloud that tho man with tho child ia bis arms, stood bewil dered, for both trco aud tornado bad vanished like a dream? These are facts that tho wiud theory, even if thcro were not insuperable and fatal objections to it, never has and never will answer. THU ANKK1CAN DKK1I. Tho American deer in the freo atmos phere of our country asd as yet un touched by our decorative art Is, without self-consciousuosi, and all bis acls ato free and unstudied. The favorite posi tion of tho deer bis forefeet Iu the shal low margin of tho lake among: the Illy pads, his antlers thrown back and nose In tho air at tho moment ho hears tho stealthy breaking of a twig In tbe forest is still spirited and graceful, end wholly unaffected by the pictures of him whlcii tho artUts have pnt upon cauvas. I know of a tamo deer in a settlement iu Ihe cdjjo of Ihe forest who had the mis fortune to brcuk her leg. Sho immediate ly disappeared, with a delicacy rare iu an invalid, ami was not seen for two weeks. Her friends had gi van her up, supposing that sho had dragged hcrsell away Into tbo depths of tho woodsaud died of starv ation; when ono day she returned, cured of lameness, but thin as a virgin shadow. Sho had the sense to shun the doctor, to lie down in soma safe place, and patient ly wait for her leg to heal. I have ob served in many of the more refined ani mals this sort of khyness and reluctance to givo (rouble which excite our admiration when noticed in mankind. Tho ilecr is called a timid animal, aud (aunled with possessing courage only when he is at bay ; the slug will fight when he can no longer flee, and the do will defend her young hi tho face of mur derous enemies. The deer gel little credit for its eleventh hour bravery . But I think that In any truly Christian condi tion ol society the deer would not bo cou spicuons for cowardice. I soppotd that if the American girl, even as she is de scribed in foreign romances, wss pnmucd by bull-dog and fired at from bchiud -fences overy time sho ventured cut of doors, she would become timid aud reluc tant logo abroad.

Ono of the leading ave nues through which went out his bcuevo lunco was thai of aiding Indigent churches and helping impecunious clergymen.

Looking around to sou wheto ho should expectorate, he saw an open c ml fire, but the bars to the grato wero polished steel. Thl wouldn't do. Next his attention was directed lo a copper coal-scuttle, tho outsido of which shone liko burnished gold, and it was beeped with canned coal. Hero was bit opportunity, rind he discharged his stream of saliva, making a perfect cascade over tho coal. Being relieved, ho commenced to state his case, slopping frequently to discharge bis tobacco Juice. Meanwbilo Mr. Tappan was II Inciting lu his seat, and finally interrupted tho good clergy man by stating that ho had made it a rule never lo givo anything to an Intemperate mini, end rising bowed (ho elergymau out. Overwhelmed with grief and mortifi cation tho good inuti sought deacon Proc tor and burst out wilb exclamations I have never been so insulted in my life. Deacou Troetor asked him lo givo an account of his Interview with Mr, Tap pan, which ho did, not dreaming that the tobacco had anything lo d with III sud den dismissal. Sit here, said the deson, I will go and sco Mr. Tappan. Arriving at tho cilice lie found tho windows wide open, and a girl tcrubbing. Mr. Tappan, said tho deacon, you bnvo hurt the feelings of ono of the best of men, a devoted Christian and a faithful pastor, what docs it iiicuu? Mr. Tappan repeated what had hap pened, and pointed to tho coal-scuttle. Why, sir, it wi'l lako a week (o get IhU room purified. Tho deacon relumed and smoothed over tho mailer as well as ho could, and tho clergyman took his leavo. lu just one year from that day tho clciifymau agaiu made- his appearance at tho store of dcacoli I'roclor, and asked him lo accompany him to the house of Mr. Tsppati. Arrived there, Ihe clergyman looking hale, hearty and clean, extended bis hand to Mr. Tnppan, exclaiming, My dear sir, you have bceu the means of breaking mo of a vile habit, which 1 thought innocent, hut which ha I got a hold of me I lit liu dreamed ol.
