Hiding over tbc Texan prairie on ber ppirited black steed, with checks glowing and eyes flashing with a sense of limUleea libertj, Alice Arlrn eemed a second Pi Vernon an Amazonian queen ererrtbioy brave and beautiful. A rumni'-r day'a sun was linking beyond lie Lorizon line of the wide expaufK.- f prairie. A light breeze came murmuring over the ondnla t;ng jrraws.

Tom reined in hi horse and hesi tated "Why, Tom, said Alice, "you are not afraid that anybody will ran nway with ine, I hope," and she el.ork her riding whip valiantly; ' and it'ii possible for me to run away with anybody, for there are not a dozn living souls in as many leagues." She re-arranged the folds of her dark green habit, and with a grace ful, iii-K-k obeisance to Tom, darted a war. Tom, unlike moti brothers, a iiuirea bis- bieit-r more man any '. tle on earth.

Reaching a cluinp of trees on the 1ank or the narrow stream, Alice tithed, and gazed around her. Amid ail the gorgeous coloring oT the Bcene there mingled that undeGnahle spirit of sadness which never fails to ac company the death of a day. Per haps this was in unison with her thoughts, for a grave expression came iti ) her eyes, and the half fniile v a-ed to play aronnd her lips. Her thoughts had front bavktwo year back through months of drea ry mailing and sclf-rcproai-b.

After the dance, he grasped Ler wrist, and led Ler out upon the balcony. He sternly commanded her never to dance a round dance with anr other than himself. Alice bad not bar gained for this. She wanted more warmth, even jealousy, in ber lover; but she would brook no infringement on her liberty of action. She repli ed haughtily, there was a stormy scene, and they parted. When her brother Tom proposed to ro to Texas, and to invest some winner in a pcheme for raising cattle, Alice had volunteered to accompany him; and she was glad of tbe chance, for accustomed scenes and people had become- painful to her. Sitting in ber saddle here, with the Texan prairie land around ber, she reviewed tbe pat with bitter sorrow. She was awakened from ber reverie by the (onndsof approaching horses' coots. On tbe opposite side of the river. which the drought had narrowed to a small, turbulent stream, Alice saw hand of horsemen. They were ap proaching. She drew back amid the trees, and watbed them. As they came nearer, sbe saw tbey were Co manche Indians. Tbey reached the opposite bank, and stopped to par Icy. Their attention seemed fixed on sonic object in the distance. Alice looked in the direction indicated by their gestures, and saw tbe duskV forms composing t herd of buffaloes cuuinea against tbe glowing sky. The ComancbescvidenilT resolved to pursue tbe flying herd. To Alice's great relief, they dashed twtr. lear ing only three of their number on the river bank. Looking closely at these three which she could easily do, as tbe river at this point was extremely carrow sue noticed tbat one or them was a white man. He was very pale, and bis hunting shirt was tlood stained. His bands were bound together with thongs, and he Lang upon his horse's neck as if too weak to sit upright Without doubt Le was a captive; and the two Indi ans lad been left to gnard him. Tbe Comanches bad their backs turned towards her, and were following with their eyes the course of their com- F (anions. She could, however, plain y see tbe features of tbe captive. tier lace grew w hite as she looked, and she nearly reeled from ber sad dle. The captive was Goy Philips! With a great, almost superhuman effort she collected her faculties in order to answer the question: what is to be done? tier firft thought was to blow tbe histie in the end of her riding whip, the sound of which if tie aril n-nnlrf Ving ber brother and his dependents w ier rescue. i at 6be felt sure that I would not bo heart) f.e th. r?.-i. , wag too far away, and Ler eignal of wu. auiu u.siress would draw the attention of the Comaochea to ber without pro Juc'.ng any good effect. aueuoukS Ol the nwrtmiNiir. fc. u.

When Guy's senses returned, and he saw Alice, who had refused to leave him, there was a scene, the dia logue of which, thoogb somewhat in coherent, was mutually satisfactory to the actors. It appeared that Guy, having strayed from his party, had been pounced upon by these strolling Com anches, and, after a brave struggle on his part, taken prisoner, to serve as a hostage fr several of tbtir number who had been captured by the United States' soldiers. "I say. A'.ice," laughed Tom, "you have fairly ass?rted woman's right to use a pistol." "I will continue to assert woman's right to help man," returned Alice, glancing fondly at Guy. And Guy knew that a similar right would be his in future as fur as Alice was concerned. The Artef TklahlBjC. ' Too much stress cannot be laid upon the fundamental importance of perfect command over thought How many a student finds a lack of this power the chief hindrance to pro gress! How many a page must ue re-read, how maor lessons conned over er and over to compensate for laps- of thought! In the Vo es absence of this power over mind lies tbe chief difference between mental strength and mental weakness. Some men think as a cnua plays w no a hammer, striking little blows here, there, anywhere, at any object with in reach." The action of & strong mind may bo compared to a stcae breaker's fclcdge-bammcr, dealing stubborn blows successively upon one spot till the hard rock cracks aud yields.

Concentration and system are thus seen to be the chief elements in the art of thinking. To cultivate the Erst, watchfulness to detect tbe least wandering, and the immediate exer tion of the will to call back and bold the mind upon the subject unde- con sideration, should be vigilantly exer cised. To secure the latter, the prac tice of aualyzing and considering the different paruof a subject, first sepa rately, and then in their relations to each other, is a discipline to which, we are sorry to say, is much uegte ed in most methods of instruction.
