I had just entered my seventh year wben my father, M. Viele, gare me & new mother intbe person of the hand somo and imperi-jus widow of one, Col. Lalor, and a brotber in Mrs. La lor's only child, a boy of twelve. Albert Lalor, witb his handsome face, etrong will and pleasant ways, Eooi became my master, ruling my impetuous spirit with a success that no ono else could. Madame Viele locked on with a prond, geli-eatigSed smile, and more than once I heard her murmur in her sweet, imperious tones : "They must marry, Philippe, Your Vi mnst be my Albert's wife." And my father would .laugh and nod hia head approvingly, evidently well pleased with the idea. Eat these happy days slipped all by too rapidly. ily fatcer died. Alber: wan fin ishing his collegiate course. I, in accordance with my father's will, was sent to Paris to be finished under tbe care of bis old and valued friend, Madame Duponte. Four years later I returned to my step-motber. It was near the close of a bleak winter day that I reached Gray FelL Bat bleak as it was, my handsome, stately step-mother met me on tbe steps of the great pillard portico. "Ah !" she exclaimed, half under her breath, as she held me off a mo ment and keenly scrutinized me with her great lustrous black eyes. Then a warm smile parted her lips, and kissing me tenderly, she added : "Yoa are beautiful, my child far more beautiful than I imagined. Al bert will be charmed. Ah, a blush, dearest? You have not forgotten mv old hope, then! But come, come, dear ; the air is bitterly keen." And gathering up the shining length of her black satin she swept queen-like before me, pausing only long enougn in the ball to aaow a kindly word or two to tbe assembled servants. Then, with a rare condescension, she led me op stairs to my chamber. As we entered the dressing room e glanced at the time piece and turned to my maid. "Take Mademoiselle a wraps, Man- ton," she said quickly and imperious ly, "and then lay cut some of her handsomest dresses ;" adding smil ingly, as her eyes returned to me, "I shall superintend your toilet this evening', my dear. Dinner will be seived in less than an hour, and I want you to appear at your best when yoa descend to the drawing room. Albert shall be dazzled ot fiivt sight." hen we entered the 'jrilnaatlv lighted drawing room it was tenanted by two personsa handsome, kindly locking man. whom I recognized at once as my step-brother, and a tali, slender girl with heavenly blue eye?, pearly tkin and a shimmering crown of pale, golden hair. A la: at damask noted the girl's cheek as we entered, and I noticed that tne gentleman rose with suspi cious ba-te from the chair very close to her own. I fancied, too. that he had even more hastily dropped one of tbe dainty white Lands tojing with a bancb of blue forget-me-nots that matched a tiny cluster half hidden in the flossy gold of her lovely hair. I bad heard of this fair girl, and that ber home would henceforth be at Gray FelL Bat for the first time it occurred to me that she might be destined to step between me and tbe man I had slowlv learned to thick of only t o tenderly. i itb a sharp, jealous pang I ex tended ray hand to Albert Lalor, who bad hastened to me, his fine eyes glowing with admiration and pleas ure. . . II is greeting was cordial, and evi dently pleased his mcher. "But why don't you kias her, my son. in the old days J" she smiled And with an answering smile, Al bert bent his grand bead and pressed bis bearded lips tightly to mine. "Ab, what a charming blush !" laogbed my step-mother, touching my glowing cheek caressingly with her soft, white fingers. J smiled, bat my bean throbbed painfully under tbe ruby velvet bo dies Uat became me so well. Be neath the pressors of those bearded Hps my. wayward wopian'd been bad ,- ,..-.(: ... ' ' EST A It I, ISHEDi; 18 3 SOMERSET; PA. WEDNESDAY, OCT. 8. 1879. leaped from tenderness to a full, fierce, passionate love. I lifted my eyes, lustrous with the new bora feeling, to the haadsome. smiling face of my brotber, and again my heart swelled with jealous pain at sight of its unruffled calm. Bi t the next moment Madame Vi ele claimed my attention. "Vi, dearest, my great niece, Peri Ilolbrook." She smiled. I turned my - eyes from Albert's face to meet the eager half-affrighted gaze of the golder-baired girl I csuld not but admire. - -' ' ' I bowed, and somewhat coldly ac cepted tbe proffered hand, and an swered the few mqsical words of gen tle welcome. Then I involuntarily flashed a swift glance at Albert. Ah, how the blood leaped through my veins ! And how I hated the charming creature standing before me, so regally graceful and sweet. Yes, I bated her, for there could be no mistaking the brooding tenderness and passion with ' which my step brother was regarding ber. Bat only for an instant did his eyes betray him ; and as the pleasant boars of the evening flew by, I grew? half disposed to laagh at my jealous pain. Nevertheless, when my step mother followed rae to my room I smiled lightly. "Peri, is very lovely, mamma, and Albert seems to admire her." Madame Viele turned a glance up on me that covered my face with a flood cf color. f 1 "Nay, nay," shelaoghed softly the next instant, winding ber arm caress ingly about me. "You have no causes for jealousy, my love. Albert In heart-whole, and knows well that it is my wish to see him your husband.' Knowing thi?," she added with a haughty sternness, "he would not dare brave me by lov ing anotber." i Then, with a swift return to her former tenderness, she continued: "My dear child, I trust you can make mo happy by lovisg my handrome and noble son V ,1 "Don't rash into jealousy, Vi... Pe ri is a good and beautiful girl, but Albert gives ber only a cousinly af fection. Though she is in ua way dependent upon me pecuniarily, 1 promised her dying mother to give ner a home at Gray Fell, as yoa know ; and you can see, my love, how very unpleasant is would make it for you to brood over a foolish jealousy. So, dear, put all that non- j sense out of your charming bead and rest assured that I am right. My eyes are keen, and in the eighteen months sho has been at Grey Fell must inevitably , have penetrated a secret of that kind." "Of course, mamma is right," I murmured as tbe door closed on her imperial foraLajyj. J, .summoned Men ton. ... Bat, my maid dismissed, I sat down ia my dressing gown and stared at tbe glowing coals, my thoughts and feelings in an anxious whirl. After a time I rose, sighingly impatiently. "I can't sleep; 1 will go down and get a book." With tho words I crept out into tbe hall. I had traversed half its length whea the sound of stealthy steps on tbe stairs sent me with ba ted breath behind the heavy damask curtains of a window near me. Burglars were in my mind, but I mad6 no outcry. The next minute the steps passed a few feet from me, and 1 was quickly undeceived. A voice 1 well knew murmured in hushed tones, "Don't grieve, my darling, it will all come right. Only be patient, my own." And I felt more than heard the soft kiss that finished that sentence. It was Peri's voice that answered. "Oh, Albert! Albert!" she breath ed, fdheringly. "Where is it all to endr We nave done very, very wrong, dearest. And ob, Albert, she loves you! I saw it ia those great, passionate, dusky eyes of ber's to night, and in a vague terror of tbe future I stared almost wildlv at her as Aunt Ilay presented me." "Nonsense ! Do yoa want to make me vaio ?" laughed my step-brother softly. And then be murmured in graver accents : You say we have doue wrong, darling. Remember we had to choose between two evils. Re member that my mother possesses an iron will. She would have ground us both to powder rather than con seat to what we" "Yes, yes, I know," sighed Peri, before be could finish the sentence I was panting to hear. "Then cease to grieve, darling," he whispered. "And now, once more, good nizht." And I knew lie folded her close to bis heart for a brief moment. As their doors closed noiselessly upon their retiring forms I crept weakly back to my chamber, pride, anger and despair clutching at my heart-strings. ' . With a stifled cry I (long myself passionately on tbe rug before the fire and boned my face ia the tiger skin covering a pile of soft, yielding hassocks. "Lost! lost t me !" I moaned in my fierce agony. And then, starting upright, 1 pasted with vengeful breath. "Bat what meant that no finished sentence? Can they" And then 1 paused and stared breathlessly at the glowing coals. "Ah ! I will watch ! 1 will watch!" I mattered later. And I shivered a the sound of my own low, relentless voice. I did watch. Night after night they Btole an hour of blissfal peace ia the ante room of tbe dim, old library, - and nignt alter ni2bt I was ruthlessly on their track. But so veia I listened to their fond speech. Tbe unfinished sentence I had caught in tbe hall above remained unfinished. - But one wild, bleak night, a month later, my task was ended. With sti fled breath I noiselessly crept from tbe library to my step-mother's cham ber. - She sat ia her dressing gown be fore the fire, lost in an enchanting book. At my stealthy aad uncere monious entrance she glanced op at me. - "Great Heavens!'' she cried, drop ping her book and stving at me in alarm. "Are yoo ill, Vi ?" I laughed a harsh, short laagh. "Only transformed into a Nemesis, mamma," 7, "A Nemesis!" echoed my step mother in a slow tone of profound amazement, the next instant adding impetuously, "Yoa look like a beau tiful spirit from Hades I' ' I shrugged my shoulders with another harsh laugh. "Come !" I said imperiously. "Come, I will show yoa my Hades !" &be started at me wondenngiy, and half shrunk as my icy little hand clasped hers. "Softly, Madame !" I whispered, as we left tbe room. Directly she was standing at the slightly open door, at which I had so often stood. I felt her nails sink deep ia the palm of my hand as her blazing eyes rested on the scene beyond. I beard her breath come ia angry gusts. For a full minute she stood thus. Then, dropping my hand, she flung back the door and swept into the dimly lighted room. The pair sitting so lovingly before the Ere started to their feet, Peri with a sharp cry of anguish. Al bert's first words were given to her: "Be brave mv love!" he smiled down upon ber in accents of melting tenderness. But hia lips were white and his eyes glowing. "V bat means all this?" demanded Madame Viele, in awfully hushed tones, gazing from one to the other with an anger before which even my fierce spirit quailed. "It means this, my mother," repli ed Albert, unfalteringly, as be paced forward and circled more closely the slender form of the pallid girl beside mm. "it means that for tbree mouths Peri has been my lovely wife. "Wife!" gasped my stepmother, staggering back as if she had receiv ed a blow. And then she screamed. pleadiugly : Not your wife, Albert?'' "Yes mother, my wife," he return ed Badly and firmly, while geat tears rolle 1 over Peri's white face. "We grieved to do it secretly, moth er, but" My stepmother lifted her baud. She bad quite recovered herself now. "bileuce . she commanded in those awfully hushed tones. "AEk no forgivoess? Ask no blessing! Pen, go I Lave this house now and forever. Gj or stay, as you will; but know that from this hour I nev er speak to you again. From this hour know your blessing my bitterest curse!" "Mother" "Silence!" again commanded my stepmother, in fearfnlly concentrated tones. "Go ! Not a word ! Pet that creature forth at once !" pointing her white finger at Peri's bowed head. "Say you forgive, mother," pleaded Albert "Say" "Silence!" almost thundered Mad ame Viele, her face .ghastly as the dead. He turned away then. "Come, my darling, we will go," he murmured with infinite tenderness to Peri. And catching up a cloak and hood she had cast there only a few hoars before, be wraped her tenderly in them and led her to the door. There they paused aod look back at Madame Viele. "Farewell, mother they said, soft ly, "and Heaven forgive ns and you!" Madame gazed stonily at them without word or gesture, and they sigbed and turned away. Directly the hall door clanged heavily after them. As it did so my stepmother turned calmly to me : "I am Borry for you, Vi" she said briefly, in stem, even tones. "Let as go to bed." And with a firm step and form erect she led me to my room. There she kissed me good night, saying calmly as she closed tbe door : "From this moment they are dead to us. Never mention their names again !" "It i3 all over now. I had reaped my vengeance." "It ia well !" I said, as my head touched tbe pillow. The days came and went. My stepmother was erect, cold and im perious as ever. Not by word, look or tone did she betray her secret But tering. But at the end of a year she bad lost every vestage of youth and health. A pale, gaunt old woman, she sat in ber chair now. One morning she called me to ber side. It was on my mneteentn birth day. V i, she said, curtly, "it s all Dead Sea frait." I gazed at her, dimly comprehend ing ber meaning. Iben she said : "They have a little daughter, i, and they have named her after me Ray Lalor, i. bball we have tbem back, Vi?" She looked at me wistfully. There was a brief strife between the good and tbe evil, and then I re plied : "It is Dead be a fruit, mamma We will have them back. I can look upon Albert as my brother now." "Thank Heaven!" exclained Mad ame Viele. And three days later Albert Peri and the little Ray were established at Gray Fell. . The Bite f the Skaak. In the Forest and Stream, of recent date, is a contribution to the question whether tbe bite of tbe skunk is pois onous aod will produce rabies. Ia the west and southwest of the Mississippi Valley this seems generally believed. A writer from Colorado quotes sev eral instances. Dr. Cashing, of Trinidad. Col , who has, no doubt, seen several cases, gives it as his opinion that the natural bite of the skunk produces hydropho bia, it does not need to be suffering from rabies itself. He says its bite will kill the victim sooner or later, without fail. Dr. W. L. South, who has had great experience in Texas and New Mexico, says "the bite will fetch the victim sometime," meaning that it will sooner or later result in death. . ' We do not believe this is the case' in the Eastern States. The skunk is j very common in rennsy tvama. v e have seen dogs bitten by it, and have known those who booted it constantly for its valuable skin, bat have never heard of any Bach ill result from its bite either in man or dog.

In all jint discussions in the South ern States these rools shood bs ob served : 1. When a radikel shows a desii'e to discuss, the ride sbood never be yocsed.

But the shot-gun is the proper weepin, for shot scat ters, and no matter bow shaky a sbivelry's hand may be, the totber discusser Cia't get out uv range uv a charge av shot 2.

The cartridges that yoo hev to yoose with the breech loader are loaded with small shot, which won't alluz do. And, besides, the breech-loader is a Yankee weepia, and no troo Southerner will yoose anything uv Yankee make, ooless be kin git it on credit 4.

The small boy now looketh opoa the circus poster when itiared, white and blue, and becometh intoxicated with delight. For what is it that carrieth more joy to tbe heart of tbe small boy than a dead wall covered with pesters ? Echo might answer, a dead head ticket covered with tbe legend, "Ad mit Cue." Aod as the boy gezsth cn the pict ures of indescribable animals, and up on the impossible antics of lightly clothed mea and women, his imagi nation maketh all the p:c;ures reali ties, and he is willing to stake his reputation as a champion marble play er tnat tne coming circus is tbe best in the world. And be loagetb to go. Soon he is j iued by tbe other boys of his sge, and tbey alt gaze upon the posters and drink of the beauties thereof. And tbey marvel among them selves. And the boy sayeth be has never seen bo wonderful a display of circus p (tares; and tbey soon fall t sp?c ulating among themselves as to whether each performer really doeth all things which he is represented as doing. And another one sayeth he Las seen aa wonderful performances as are pictured out on tbe posters. But his companions laugh biin to scorn. . So it cometh to pass that the boy who hath seen all these things is forc ed to hold his peace (providing he has not already devoured it), for ver ily the majority raleth among the boys. Soon the all-important question cometh op regarding the prospect for crawling under the canvas, and tbey wax enthusiastic, and ia their minds they are ail in the circus on the front seat, each one having found a good place to crawl under.

The capitol of the Czar is not like Madrid and like Pera, a city almost uaiahabitable for Europeans. The necessaries of hfe are abundant and cheap enough : its luxuries, albeit ex ceedingly costly, are equally plenti ful With supplies of money in your pocket, every tbing that the most pol l-hod Sybarite could desire, may be procured in retropolis. House-rent of a superior kind is enormously dear; but yoa get proportionately spieudid accommodation for your trouble. Succulent diancrs, dressed by French cooks, ball-dresses and bon nets, constructed by French millin ers, and dressmakers, an inexhausti ble supply of Jouvio gloves, eaa de Cologne, artificial flowers and articles de Paris ; one of the graadest opera houses in Europe, wita Patti or AI bani for "prime donne ;" French plays and opera bouffes with ail the brightest stars cf tbe Gaite, the Vau deville, and the Ambigue ; a dazzling succession during tbe winter season of Dourt balls, banquets and recep tions, splendid review?, first rate horse flesh, and any amount cf skat ing, sledding, and "Montagne Rus se" descending in winter, tixe aU these are constituents of upper-class existence in the metropolis of Rus sia. Tbe lower classes are illiterate, superstitious, and filthy, but you do not come ia contact with tbem. Yoa rarely even hear their language. Well-educated Rassians speak noth ing but French in society, evea among tbetuselvea and when no for eigners are present As it has long been the practice among tbe Courts of Europe to send the very cleverest ambassadors, ministers, and secreta ries of legation obtainable to a Court where intrigue Is chronic and double dca'ing a custom of the country, the diplomatic saloons cf St Petersburg are frequented by exceptionally pol ished, cu.tured, and astute guests, while fieneral society is redundant with accomplished enchantresses, who combiao tbe grace and refine ment of :fce Faubourg Sr. Germain with the mirthful morals of Monte Carlo. What more could be desired ? There is aa Academy of Sciences ; there are splendid museums cf pict ures and sculpture and atit:'ii'.ies ; and artists and servant go into soci ety. The only drawbai u all this luxury and culture is tb .Si.

With this un comfortable sensation the asperity cf the climate has little to do. A winN-r in Montreal or Quebec will vieia tne way cf intense cold with a winter in St Petersburg. The St Lawrence freezes as hard and as long as the Neva ; and making np your mind for the worst, with well heated rooms, and plenty of furs, mocassins and buffalo robes to keep you warm, the frost and snow are soon forgotten, even if, indeed, they are not found rather enjoyable than otherwise. It is the moral, not the physical man, who feele tbat he is in goal. Not tbe limbs but the mind requires freedom of action, it may be that Government itself is powerless to relax the tension which is the offspring of a merciless system of repression. It has been said of the Sphynx that she is bo old as to have forgotten the solutions of ber own riddles ; and of the Russian Government it may be said, almost without the risk of paradox, tbat it has lost the key of tbe prison in which not only its sujects and the strangers within us gates, bat its own self, are confined ; and tbat it has grown so accustomed to a regime of espionage and delation, as to begin confasedly to contemplate the expediency of de nouncing and taking itself into custo dy. lbs Law jer n.aiaa t Take IS. Up in New Hampshire there is a well-known eccentric individual, self- constituted curer of all ills ; a sort of universal panacea, "body and soul, bead, heart and cooscieace doctor," who, with all bis eccentricities, has a fand of actual wit that is bard to beat Not long ago the "doctor was called upon tbe witness stand. The oppos ing counsel, who is said sometimes to "whet his whistle" with "liquor pi zen," knowing tbe doctor's peculiar ities, ventured, ia cross examining bim, to sbow bim op a bit 1 be re sult will be appreciated. "What is your business?" prompt lv inquired tbe counsel. "My business if to do what little good I can do to my fellow-men," modestly replied tbe doctor. "But tbat doesn't answer my qnes. tion," grniHy remarked tbe coansel "How do yoa spend your time ?" "Why, 'squire, it takes about all my time to do what 1 said," re marked the doctor. ' But I want something more defi nite," stoatly demanded the coansel. "How do yoa go about yonr busi ness ?" "That dependa opoo circumstances. according to the nature of the rase," explained the doctor. For instance, it I were going to begin on yoa, the first thing I should do would be to advise yoa to sign a temperance pledge." The Court roared, and the coansel, as if convinced the doctor was persu ing a legitimate a;id respectable vo cation, proceeded with tbe ingular cross-examination. A Pbyalrlaa Aeaaaalaatetf.

If it has hope, it is that the United States may meet disaster. Bad crops here, prostration of indus try, closing of shops and mills, mul tiplication of tramps, filling of poor houses anf jails, increase of losses and suffering -these are the only ar guments which can help tbe Green back party. If these fail, the party goes to the bad. It cannot anui tor joy when the credit of the United States improves, for tbat is an argu ment for Shermaa and the Republi cans. It cannot see with pleasure the crowdiog of ootward-boaod steamers with the rich products of our farms ; that helps to fill the Treas ury aod tbe banks, and to make re sumption a 8acce88.

Debts ar pvid, larmers for the first time treaa acres on which no mortgage lies, men and women sleep for tbe first time in homes they caa call their own, and ail tnis brings dispair to the heart of tne Greenback advocate, tor his country's disgrace and misery alone can save him from contempt It is a party without a country, and a party without a future. No one supposes that the elastic industry and euterprise of Americans can long be kept down. Sooner or later there must come again such grand prosperity as this country has thrice enjoyed prosperity saca as has nev er yet dawned upon any other laud. ben good times come, tho Greer. back party dies. Every breath cf hope for the country is to thataahap py party more deathly thaa the blast ot the sirocco. Its possibility of a future existence rests upon the failure of American geaias, eaergy, patieace and manhood that is to say, it has no right to hope for a futore at all. To such a party as this, young men in this country are evea now asked to join themselves. Flimsy falshoods are told them of tbe suffer ing existing somewhere when they point to crowded barns and busy workshops neer at hand. Stories that a school boy should be able to disprove, as to aouse of the power of the treasury for the benefit of the public creditors, are paraded before them. Banks and bankers a'e at tacked by men who know that the country never yet has seen any oth er banking systeai so good as tnat which it now enjoys. Wretched rhymes, insulting to tbeir intelligence as to tbeir taste, are sung in their bearing as the battle songs of a par ty which would revel in toe country's misery, if only the country woald be miserable. The srrand prosperity which sends the blood bounding with new swiftness and vigor through ail the pulses of trade, means hope to everybody else, bat death to the Greenback demagoage. - here is tbe man who wants to tie himself to a party tbat is doomed to ia a disgraceful death? Tbis country is not going to ruin. Tbe splendid courage of its people, tried for many weary years, has proved vigorous. Royal good faith, and tbe manhood and pluck to make good every piedge, have placed this coun try high on the roll of fame. The men of to-day greet each other with good cheer because the nation has kept its faith, and reached the solid rock of specie payments. The men of generations hereafter will look back with pride to the work and triumph of tbe Americans of to-day. But there is one nnhappy man the Greeabacker.

One ot the most carious things about rain is in the equality of its distribution. Tbe reader is of course aware that rain may be measured ia iocbes in almost any vessel set oat to catch it If a pail, for example, t pat oat in an open space on the ground. It we visit tbe pail after every show er, we may by the means cf a two- foot rale, tell what depth of rain has fallen. This is the principle of the rain guage. In practice better means are ot course adopted, so as to pre vent evaporation aaoL to measure the depth. Now it is of great conse quence where we place oar rain guage. It might be supposed of no importance wnetber it were on tbe top of tbe bouse or in the garden close by. Aod yet, strange to say, a guage in tbe jrardon ot Westminis ter Abbey caught twenty tlree iocbes of rain in the course of a year, while one on the roof of a boose caught on ly eighteen inches, and one on top of the abbey, only twelve inches. The fact is, rain forms at a very low ele vation, it increases the size of the drops which come from tbe higher levels. Thus, while Mr. Glaisher was descending in a balloon, he pass ed through a wet fog, where the drops of rain were exceedingly fine, covering tbe note book liks pin points. These increased in size on approach ing the earth and more rapidly when very near the earth. The latest story of the American Spiritualist is as follows: A skeptical fel'.ow obtained admis sion to a seance tbe other day, where at Daniel Webster habitually materi alized walking from a cabinet across the room and looking as he bad look ed in life, but makiag no souiid of footsteps. This bate-minded man tossed a number of tacks on tbe floor; and as they had very large heads, tbey, of coarse, fell points upward The consequence was that when Dsn came out of tbe cabinet and began to walk across the room he suddenly paused, aod lifting one foot, applied bis baud to the sole thereof. Upon taking another step he saddenly drew up again, and in a low voice ejacula ted, "Ugh !" Shortly after tbis he lost his balance and sat down on the floor ; immediately he became very profane, wiggled painfully in his seat. jumped op with an exclamation not found in the dictionary, and retreated into the cabinet greatly disgusted with the matter. Not so the skeptic, who remarked thst it was a proof of the truthfulness of the line that "Fools rash in where angels fear to tread." Aira imparts a richer flavor to wine aad increases its value; but alas! it is the woist tbing that could happen to aa egg. The male is of so even disposition ; be always behaves according to his wont.
