Mr. Spencer grasped tbe .young man's band and thanked bim. "Your plan succeeded admirably, Carrie," be said ; and advancing to tbe wasbstand, be took out tbe mon ey belt, saying, "my money is all right, tt you see." , The landlord quivered with rage os be saw bow completely be had ben defeated. As tbe men began to search tbe room the landlo-d protested bis in nocence, declaring that they bad no right to bold bim or bis men prison ers, or to Bi-arcb tbe bouse. . Breaking open the door, above wbicb was the bust, tbe men rushed in. The roomjwas empty, save frra long ladder, which reached a shelf above tbe door. A bole above tbe sbelf disclosed tbe bust to ba broken io half so that a roan could easily climb op tbe ladder, get on tbe shelf, thrupt bia bead in tbe bust, wbicb was large enough for an ordinary man's head, and see all that was oiog on in tbe adjoining room. This certainly looked suspicious, but absolute proof was yet wanting. On returning to the room occupied by Mr. Spencer, tbey again searched every nook and corner. Suddenly Carrie and Mr. James, who had been stac'liog by tbe fireplace, gave a lood cry, for oo close examina'.ioo, they bad found spots of blood on tbe brick wbicb formed tbe hearth. Tbey began to pull op tbe bricks, which proved loose, - wben Carrie. feeling faint, gar way to the sheriff and bis men, who aoon bad tbem all pulled op, wben a cavity was disckx - ed, containing tbe murdered body of a gentleman wbom Mr. James and tbe -berifr remembered io have stop ped at S -, three days before.

Tbis adytum is ten feet loog and four wide, and the charm seems to yawn, and Its great month is horri ble to contemplate. Rude people la tbe vicinity call it "Hell's Hole" or tbe "Indian Pit" From the measareless abyss there is 8aes,ceaseless as tbe lapse of boors aod days and years, a volume of mist.

People dwelling near by tell that ia fall and winter the heavy stertor ous breathings from the cavern are much warmer than sharp blasts sweeping along tbe deep gorge, while in summer the misty vapor from within ia cooler than tbe exterior at mosphere. Tbis fathomless pit grows wider iu its downward course, and nothing living or inanimate that bas entered ever found exit. - - ot the faintest echo was ever beard wben great stones bave been rolled into tbe awful depth of this dtscentm Jrrrni. If such massive boulders bad encountered any object within miles of the entrance tbe sound pro duced would bave been surely borne tc listeners above by tbe strong, steady air-current. The impression fixed from child hood to age, that lbe solid earth must be forever immovable beneath our feet as surely and immovable as the sun and stars aQd blue rBQt above our heads, is rudely shaken when one stand, ia the presence of such demonstrable nollownesa aod emptiness as this. Very much tbe same sensations are excited when standinr at tbe pit's mouth as when an earthquake shakes land aod sea and make, men and women sbadder. Wben, not Ions ago, it was sought to ascertain tbe depth of tbe chasm, a heavy weight was attached to a strong cord, tbo lead went down, down, down, till the line and plum met bad measured tbe greatest pos sible depth, but no sound came back to tell tha end of unutterable bollow nes. below.

Near Union City, in Tennessee, and near tbe soutb-westera confines of Kentucky, is Reelfoot Lake. Here tbe roof of a mighty cavern was sbaken down by tbe earthquake of 181112. .Lofty forest trees, tbe tallest that tower abuve the lowlands, disappeared with the land on wbicb tbey grew, and a sea, broader and deeper tban that of Galilee, was oat spread in crystal clearness in the midst of tbe lowlands. Ducks and geese fleck its surface and trout abound ia tbe modern lake that bad never reflected tbe son's face on its fathomless depths iill tbe bridge of soil and trees and cane was broken down by the earthquake's resoonding footsteps.

Tbe rivers aod streams of Kansas, notably tbe former, tbe Smoky Hill and Republican, both rising io Colo rado, fteadily flowing on throughout the State, and uniting their joint for ces with that of tbe Saline and Solo mon, at Fort Riley, to form the Kan sas or Kaw river, prove most conclu sively (tbe rspidity of evaporation being taken into account) that there is a far greater rate of rainfall through out the length and breadth of tbe State tban hitherto it bas bad credit for.

Ike lalllcry Traahlaa. Wilksbarre, March 17. A very large meeting of miners who have besn employed in tbe collieries of tbe Lehigh and Willkesbarre Coal Com pany wss held yesterday. Commit tees were appointed to ascertain tbe feeling existing generally among tbe men employed in all tbe collieries io tbe Wyoming snd Lehigh Companies regions. Strong efforts will be made to get tbe men els where to ' co-operate aod inaugurate a general strike. If tbe plan fails the miners io tbis lo cality will probably be forced to re sume work. ' The comnii'tets refer red to are to report at a mass meet ing to be held oo Wednesday. 1 Scranto.v, Pa., March 18 The mine engineers, pomp bands and oth er macbinests having charge' of mine machines met here in secret session to-day, and it is expected they will rike. A mass meeting of "miners aod laborers representing an tbe mioes io tbe region will be held here to-morrow to uke defioate action re lating to tbe reduction. nr1 T imawjul ta k i ay l "maiir tu PISCRlFTIOX Of TBI STPKRBK CARS SOW BKISO COXSTRVCTED, For aoase tima we bave beard bints of a Fine of hotel ears for tbe Omaha & California line of the Chicago A North-Western Railway. . When naked aboot ; their cars, the officer have uniformly evaded a direct reply ' Onr "reportorial inkt'neta'' taught us to investigate tor ourselves. We bave done so, and are now en- abled to state potitirely tbat such a line will be started in the early spring, aod tbat tbe cars are now being built. The fact will no longer be a secret after tbis day's psper get be fore the public. , Four of the most magnificent hotel cars tbat hare been built anyv.hrre, are now being constructed by thc Pnllman Palace Car Company ex pressly for ibis lioe. .. These cars will be sixty -six feet loog, tea feet wide aod teo feet bigb, with twelve sec tions, one drawing-room (with table room for six persons), aod oon state room, besides the kitcheo, china closet, dressing room, etc. Tbe in terior will be furnished with black aod white walnut, mahogany, French asb, aod cnrled maple, tbe placs of the usual bead-lining being filled in with foreign polished woods; tbe panels between tbe windows will ' he ot California laurel and other Cali fornia woods; tbe lamp fixture?, window fastenings, door hardware, etc., will be of triple plated silver, Tbe upholstery of the seats is to be of rich but plain reps, corresponding aod harmonizing with lbe wood finish of lbe sides aod roof of the cars; Between each set of seats is pace for a table that will accommodate four persoos coinfortaoiy,' but as a rule are not expected to seal more tban two - perpen. The . glas. aud eainaware for tb tables are uu being made at Dresden, Germany, from patterns selected from tbe Royal Dresden exhibit that wa at the Centennial Exhibition and so greatly admired Each piece of silver-ware, glass-ware and china-ware will have tbe monogram of lbe Chicago A North-Western road marked thereon. Tbe kitchens of tbe cars will be so arranged tbat oo fumes frjm tbe cookiog viauds can reach tbe occu pants ot tbe berths. Oo esch car will be a steward, two cooks, three waiters, aod a chambermaid t- wait upon tbe lady patrona It is the in tention of tbe company to furnish tbe best meals that money cso buy, and choice wines and cigars will be at tainable by tbose desiring those luxuries. These hotel cars will leave Chica go oo tbe 'California Express," sod ruo through to tbe Missouri river. Oo the wcst-boooJ train, dinner, supper and breakfast will be served. Tue east-bound hotel cars will leave Omaha on tbe "Atlantic Express" each day, in the afternoon. Oo tbis train supper, breakfast and dinner will be served. Thus passengers bound in either direction will be en abled to bave all their meals m route. and yet not leave their palatial travel iog parlor. Tbe only objection that has ever been raised against tbe use of hotel ears has been connected with the odors of tbe kitchen. As we said liefore, this, in these cars, will entire ly be obviated ; no persoo, no matter bow particular be or sbe may be, will have cause to make any objec tions on tbis score. In tbe dining car you merely get your meals, and as soon as you are through eating you are shoved out and started for tbe coach or sleeper, so as to make room for some other traveler who desires your place. While in these hotel cars your berth will be secured through, you will own it absolutely for the length of your trip, and it will be your own for lounging, sitting, sleeping", and eating purposes, as much as your own seat in your own boose. As it is not generally known, dining cars are never run over the entire length of any route; thev are taken on aod set off of tbe train ' at stated meal times, while these hotel cars will be made a part of tbe train and ruo through io the same way as tbe regu lar sleeping car. ' On the admirable steel rail tbat 1 now laid on tbe Chicago A North Western Railway, these elegant, tix-teeo-wheeled hotel csrs will ride as easy and with as little noise or oscil lation as a balloon tbat floats seretse'y through tbe air ; aod we believe it will be found to be a result tbat tbousaod will flock to tbis "Pioneer Line," who bave hitherto gone by some otber route. With these and other improve ments the people oi Cedar Rapids are very largely interested and we be lieve will join with us in congratu lating tbe progressive management of ibis great line io ibis iu most advanced step; and onite with os io sayiog, tbe Chicago k North-West-ero Railway bas become the fore most road ia all the West. The hotel csrs will be placed ia service aboot March 1st, 1877. e- publican, Pee. 22. 1876.. aa-arlas; Orchard. There would seem to be no good reason whv, if we wish to raiie good orchard fruits, we should not manure our trees. People often look at trees growing on rockv hill-sides, aod ar gue therefrom tbat trees grow with out manure. They koow tbat pota toes and otber vegetables must bave manure or tbev will not thrive, but tbey regard trees as a different order of vegetation, sometbiog tbat can thrive aod flou.-ish where nothing else would. But m cane of trees oo bill-sides, lbe land is anything but poor, lbe rocks tberoseivea oiieu eontain valuable mineral matter. wb'cb, as tbe rock decay p, is preeen ! ed io a form that plants cau fred up on. Tben whatever vegetation grows among tbe rocks remains there to de cay, and even leaves and other for eign substances that blow into tbe crevices formed by tbe rock make a valuable plant food, va ab ch the trees thrive. Indeed, tree io appar ently poor, rocky places, are really much be tier ofT than many trees iu orchards, where tbey are iu what ap pears good land. lo more l-vel land, trees must be manured. In maoy cases, it is neces sary to tbe bett success that trees bave an occasional manunog as it is tbat any oibtr crop should bave manure. There bave been many discussions as to whether msnure fur frait trees should be applied broad cast or ploughed in. For orchard trees there is oo rule ; it depeods oo circumstaoces. if the trees are on ground where vegetables are grown, tee manure is, of course, turned io for tbe beoefit of these crops, and tbe roots of tbe fruit trees fight with tbose of tbe vegetables for some oi It, and get it, too. iioi tbere are maoy orchards where no crops are grown but tbe trees, aod then it is an eicellent practice to apply manure a. a top dressing at least every otber year, if yon would bave tbem bear abundance of good fruit Box ton Journal of Chemistry.
