It baa been m many years sim-e a p-n-tiine love affair (xvurreal at watering-plaa-e that the one iH-tween Koilerand the French piverness was rtgiirileal aa a sui--cereiiain of l henoiiit iia. The Brainlon waa of the latent type of aitht'tif mim mer Imta-ls-a larjri' Queen Anne mansion, KUrTomnleai w ith ei'ttagHf equally Queen Anne, high in altitude aa in tariir, an the Anlo-Saxon aay. The cottattea were the rewartu of thuw favorites of fortune who, wearvinir of Newsrt anal Ijennx, hourht a iilaav where they cotilii have a fortnilit'h nt4 from the liusincsx of laleasttre. The style of ilresK wiu severe ly plain amiiiijr the women, ami the men atfiftail Norfolk jackets ami uliisitin iiiatis. Tliesae peculiaritiea were unknown U the IUirt-Robinsotu- when they taxik the liiiast exja-HHive etattajte for the sea- Huti. Thev oulv knew it wan verv hiijli irMisl and very exclusive. The tune came iluriuv; their sojourn when ther blushtHl fur the nutnlierlesx pirvenus toi lets displayed by Lillian Burt-Kohinson, and for Mrs. liurt-Haibinson'H iliamoiuls. as latye as jieas, which she wore every eveninir. The Burt-RobinsoiiH had lieen e vol veil thus: first there was Jusiah B. Robinson, hardwarenien hant and dealer in agricultural iiii.lcincnts, then a fine house on Fifty-eighth Street, and cards eturraveil "Mr. and Mrs. Josiah Kurt Iia it iiuH.ii ; " next a laix at the tipera, no tiival in the saa-iety aa-rs as that of the Burt-Robinsains; and at last simply the Burt-KoliinsotiR, as latiple say the How ard de Realclyffcs. They had not however, pot iiite np to the level of the Howard ale Realclyffes, or they would not have lieen found at the Brandon House with Lillian the daugh ter, and Clarence the son, and little (iwemlolen the lathy, with her French jrovemess, Miss Lefevre, as they all vaiteil it jsiky, and only came laecause if the aciUaintances to lie maale. Miss Lillian had thought to lo t:reat thiniis w ith her pretty blonde hair blow zeal over her eyes and her innumerable Huffy white toilets. She haal sugp'stal brinrinr the ftovcrn ess along, thiiikiii)! in the depths of her heart that Miss Lefevre' dark skin and trim black dresses would make a pssl foil for her tiwn bright lieauty. The piverness was certainly very dark, and had no clothes to speak of ; but she had eyes as black as slaa, and the way she wore her simple jpiw ns was truly Paris ian. There was one thing Iillian did under stand and that was music. The Brandon did not indulge in anything so coinuion place as a regular orchestra, but it had a couple of voting Hermans, one of whom played, on the piano and the other on the cornet, while Koller was the violinist, w ho "rendereal" Wagm-r, S liumaniijiiKl Raff most artistically in the great dim alrawing-rootu every morning and even ing. Lillian, although given to affecta tion, could truly say that she "adoreal" to hear them play ; but there w as a mys tery alamt Koller w hich attracted her. True, he was only the violinist at a sum mer hotel, but there was a delicious aroma of " family " floating around him. Simeboaly said he was a count, or had la-en a count, or w as going to be a count ; and one morning as the Burt-Robinsous sat listening to the last strains of concer to, Mr. Presi-ott Fairlatnks, the most fashionable acajuaintaiicethcy had in the world, came up tai speak to them, and seeing Koller, statical visibly. Then he went up to him and said holding out his banal, " Why, count excuse me, surely I ant uot mistaken I knew Count Maurice Roller, well!" Koller colored up to the roots of his curly yellow hair, and awkwardly aecep teal Mr. Presaiatt Fairbanks' aaitstretcheil liand. " Ye,I am Roller.but in somew hat liard eircumstancea. I would prefer uiy family alid na.! know " Then he topd short. It was eajually embarrassing to Mr. Presi.tt Fairbanks. " IVm't let me internipt yau," he saial htirrieally, waving his hand as if Koller were playing for his in n amusement. " lreeiit.y well have a talk." Roller went laack somew hat tremulous and excited to his everlasting cona-erfa and nocturnes. Miss Lillian seized Mr. Fairbanks. " I)o tell uie ull alsmt hint, ami what brought hint hear," she whis- ereal as he la-nt alow n. "Can't, iny dear young lady. Never was more surprised in my life. Last time I saw hiui I was at his father's palace in Munich. Most embarrassing reeontre." This was all, but that was enough. Mr. Fairbanks presently escaed from the ladies ; was seen no more until some one caught him coming out of the cottage where the musicians lodged, and left on the night train. Nobasly but the Burt Robinsams had witnessed the Fairbanks episode, and they tacitly agreed to keep it to themselves. But to Lillian a glori ous vista openeal up. She was not with out that grain of romance that is seldom left out in women. The Countes Man rice Koller was not that quite as pa si as half a daizen countesses she read about in the society columns of the papers? Anal then tlie romance although it would be as w ell not to have it two wide ly known; and it was a money trouble, were there not many hundred thousand dollars belonging to tlie Burt-Robinsons, and bat three to divide it among? Then Somerset Maurice was so hanalsome, and played so grandly only the sooner he stopped playing the ietter. And so Miss Lillian dreamed and planned, sitting in a fault less attitude in a large-arm chair, slowly fluttering her AVatteau fan, while the breeze as softly fluttered her filmy drap eries. Next to her sat mamma, as duti ful and ohealient as the American mam ma usually is in families of the Burt- Robinson stamp, and baa-k of them the French girl with Gwendolen sprawleal all over her lap. The first time the eyes of Jeanne Le fevre and Koller had uiet,something like an electric shock hail passed between them. Jeanne hail thought it was hate, although it might have taeen Vive, as the boundary line between those two emo tions is not always clearly defined. Jeanne's father hail lieen an officer in the French army, from Alsace, and had been killed in a sortie from Metz; and Roller had actually belonged to the army of ocaupation, and had sient two years in garrison at .'trasliurg, as she found out in some way. Naturally she hated him, and Koller, seeing the fierce ness of the hatred that flamed in her pretty fiuie. hail determined to be re venged on her. He had had his Victories, anal he said to himself that lie would make this black browned French girl yet give him a soft glance out of her south ern eyes. He had a way of looking at her ten derly, intently that exasjierated her. He played at her, things she knew, full of sentiment anal longing, that made her yearn to box his ears. And yet he was so stealthy altout it 1 He saw what every body saw, what filled Mrs. Burt-Rob-inson with anguish, that Lillian was making what is vulgarly and with vul garity called " a alead set " at him. Why he could not imagine. Why any girl on earth, w ith Lillian's laeauty, her youth. and her money, should want to marry a man whom everybody supposed to lie a iK'iinilesK Oennan violinist, was bevond him. Ho mistakenly fancied that titles without mom-v were not valued in this glorious republic ; and having s.uandcr eil all that he could lay his Hands onjtnd having nothing but his violin at present laetweeit himself and starvation, he saw- no more reason why Lillian should devote herself t his capture than to that of the cornet, w ho was also a re markably gissl lis. king young fellow, hut Miss Lillian knew her game. Count Roller's palaa-e in Munich fired it. She would not in the least mind being Coun tess Roller, and if the violin cpisasle got out, it could lie trcateal as a lark. Miss Lefevre, sitting far back, and glowering ilarkl v at the hamlsome young ( ieruian, rather amused Lillian, until, in a paroxysm of ill-temper one day, she re market! that she didn't believe Roller was a count at all. Something like a thrill of fear shot through Lillian's heart. Suppose, after all her languishing and posing, the vio linist should turn out to lie no more than the cornet? But she reassureal herself; she had Mr. Prescott Fairbanks' word for it, and when, after a triumphal pro gress to Munich, gilded by tlie Burt Rohinsoiis dollars she burst upon New York in a blaze of glory as Countess Maurice Roller, she would reap the rich harvest of her penetration. After a while a little rivulet of talk lie gan to trickle between the violinist and the sofa w hereon the Burt-Rohinsons sat. Very deftly Raillcr waiuld get the French girl in conversation. They would talk ulxiiit music in the tiauses lietween the nocturne and concertos, and Koller would, inadvertently as it were,dmp into French. This made Jeanne tingle the first time he did saa. When the music was over, and the people w ould stream out of the vast room, Roller got into the w ay of sauntering along tow ard the Burt Robinson cottage, and finally ta sitting on the little real anal green porch. In vain Mrs. Btirt-Robinson entreateal, al most wept, and pointed out to Lillian how necessary it was for them to do like other jaeoplc, and that Roller went to no other cottage. Pink anal white Lillian had some of that nerve and enterprise about her that had helped to make Jos iah Burt-Roliinsoti, out of small begin nings, one of the greatest hardw are men in N. Y. The Van Santvonl and the Van aler Trunks had made overtures to Roller on the strength of the floating re ports, which day by alay la-came erystal- izeal, about his superiority to his em ployment, and of this Miss Lillian did not fail to remind her mother. Ami so, with heart-burnings anal anxietia-s and much gossip, Roller gradually became an htihitMf of the Burl-Robinson cottage. For himself, he thought it much bet ter to sit in the shade and watch Lillian's graceful white-roUil figure swinging in the hammiM-k than to drink lieer and play tlaiiiiinoes with the cornet. His whole soul was alisorlical in one idea ta make money enough to get liack to tier- many creditably, anal with an outfit which would not reveal the straits to which he had lieen put after getting rid fthe handsome allowance made him for his tour. Jeanne Iiefevre was an cpisasle. Americans puzzled htm, but this French girl he saw through easily enough. She liated (aennans; she laid her orphanhood, her poverty, her chang ed position, all to the Ciermans, and she feal her resentment on this cool, liand- sniue young fellaiw. Roller adoreal dark eyes, anal Jeanne's glow eal so charmingly when they rested on little (.iwemlolen, which was the only ss-nuine thing in the Burt-Robinson family. By slow degrees he pit Jeanne to look at him, and then gradually the fierceness melted ont of her face ; and w hen she smiled she was beautiful. The first time she answered his glance, as he sat playing Chopin in the half light, Roller felt that he haal won a haral fought lauttle. It was getting late in the season; sum mer had uttered her mysterious "Hush V before she take her flight; there were but few people left at the Brandon House, when late one afternot.n, Roller and Lil lian, sauntering along met Miss Lefevre. Gwendolen, for once was not with her. The two young women saluted each aither coldly, and Lillian walked on when she Roller disposed to loiter behind. In a minute or two they had disappeared. Mis Lefevre stooal still when they were out of sight, that they, might get a long way ahead. Presently, as she tuoveal slowly down the winding path, site saw a fan, an expensive trifle that she recognised at once as belonging to Lillian, lying in the path. At that mo ment Roller appeared. ESTABLISHED 1827. SOMERSET, PA., AUGUST "Good evening again, mademoiselle'," said he, addressing her in French. " Mademoiselle Lillian requested me to return and look for her fan, which she had dropped ; and as it led me toward you, I came willingly." There it is," said Jeanne, sullenly ; and as Roller stamped to pick it up, she snatched it from the ground, and in an instant her strong white fingers had brok en it into a dozen pieces. Koller caught her wrists. " What are you doing that for " t he cried. " Because," saial Jeanne," it belongs to her.and because you came to Uajk for it." She took the shreds and splinters in her hand, and threw theiu with no ignoble skill into the pond, fifty feet away. Koller stared at her blankly. Was it possible that rose-bud Lillian ill-treated this dependent ? His heart swelleal with' in him, as a man's heart is apt to swell at the idea of injustice to anything young and prettvof thevther sex. "Does she ill-treat vou?" he askeiL . Jeanne looked at him with fine scorn " Do you not think," dhe asked, in her pretty French-English, "that I could take care of myself from that that little thing? But I tell you what, monsieur,' she continued as Koller remained silent, " you need to take care of yourself. She knows you are a count. Bah! thec Americans!" Koller bit his lip anal looked annoyed but at last burst out laughing, and then sighed a German sigh. " Mademoiselle," said he, " do not deprive me of my only friend. This Miss Lillian Burt-Robinson is kind to me when j you are not. She feels sympathy for uitj a stranger and an exile ; you do not" Jeanne, being desperately in love with Koller by this time, could make but one answer to these reproaches, w hich was to burst into viailent weeping. Koller remained calm. He knew some thing atiut women, and was not inordi nately disturtaed by their sentimental tears. He attempted resjaectfully, after the Continental fashion, to take her hand, but Jeanne rudely repulsed him, and rushed past, saying, between her solis : " Yes, yes, you are the lover of that little thing. Take ber, anal lie happy. Forget all alsiut Jeanne Lefevre. I am rightly served. The Germans have done harm to me and mine from the find- I wish I could hate you as I ought, and anal" Roller saw her slim figure darting ahead of him in the gloom. As he walked slowly back, pulling his blonale mustache, he concluded that he really loved this little French girl, and the only thing for him to do was to mar ry her and take her back to Munich. In the joy of the proaligal's return his par ents would probably forgive him, and he would be free from the persecutions he endured in regard to falling in love with a certain Banjncag yon Kafelstein, who hail eyes like tlie bottom of a pew ter plate, and weighed twice as much as he did. It is easy to convince one's self of the wisaloin of what one strongly desires ; so Roller's mind was pretty well made up before he reached the Burt-Robinson cottage. Lillian was waiting for him in a dark corner of the porch. " Well, where is my fan?" Roller's heart gave a jump. He hail forgotten all about the fan. " I I assure you mademoiselle, I searched and I'm sure it is not in the path," he addeil, with sudden bolalness, fair it was surely at the laottoui of the pond. " You probably . met the governess," saial Lillian, with sarcasm in her smooth voice. " I alid," replied Roller, lamely. "Ah!" She reflecteal it was now or never. Roller, in his supposed jsisition, would never dare to make the first advance to her ; that had been fully decided. Coun tess Maurice. Roller Well, it was worth the stake and she haal read in several novels where the heroine hail very suc cessfully proposed to tlie hero, and haal lieen accepted- She rapily ran over in her mind the general form of the pro position. " Roller," she saial, dramatically, " you are Jsajr unknown a wandering min strel" " I beg your pardon, mademoiselle, I have a regular contract w ith the proprie tor of the Brandon House, for four mouths, lieginning last June." " That is nothing," said Lillian, vexeal to have her exordium so alistnrbed. '"But do von not see how it is? Do vou not feel forme?" To have two women throw themselves at his head the same afternoon was more than even (ieruian stolidity Could stand. Roller seizeal his hat and retreated to ward the stejw. "Mademoiselle," he saial, earnestly, " I assure you I feel fair you. To lose an or nament like your fan, cherished for a thousand tender associations, the gift, perhaps of a foyored lover a ah! gaasl evening, mademoiselle " and he was gone. Lillian stood, angry anal irresolute. Just then she saw the lamps lighted in the little drawing-room,anil Jeanne enter, with Gwenalolen tagging after her as usual. It suddenly occurreal to her that perlutps it would lie as well to send the French governess home. She stepped in through the open window. "I've been thinking," she saial, amibly, to Jeanne, " that yon might final it rather stupid up here, anal perhaps you'd like to pay a visit to your friends for a few weeks. I am sure mamma w ill agree to it" "But I have no frienils nearer than France," replied Jeanne, doggedly, sit ting down and disentangling a wonderful piece of crocheting belonging to Gwen dolen. " Then you can go down to the house in Fifty-eighth Street." " But why do you wish to get rid of me, mademoiselle? Do I interfere w ith your plans in any way ?" It will be seen that the two young ladies were rapidly drifting into a quar rel. Opportunely Mrs. Burt-Robinson entered. " You up at this time, Gwendolen? It's a quarter of an honr past your bed-time. Miss Lefevre, you should not allow Gwendolen to sit np nntil nearly eight o'clock." Jeanne inarched Gwendolen off to bed. 80 then she was to be sent back to Fifty eighth street. Well, it did not matter ; she would tell Mrs. Burt-Robinson- she was willing to go, and she would be spar ed the sight of Koller and Lillian's bill ing and cooing. 25, 188G. Next morning it was all arranged be fore breakfast. Mrs. Burt-Robinson, who had, of course, been dragooned by Miss Lillian, gave some preposterous reason for sending her back. The house was open. The housekeeper and two servants were there, and Mr. Burt-Robinson. Ami Miss Lefevre left on the mid-day train. Two or three nights afterward, Mr. Burt Robinson was smoking his after dinner cigar on the baitwny, when Rol ler's card was brought up to him. Mr. Burt-Robinsain's heart sank. He had heart! in some way how things were go ing upit tlie Brandon, and he was con vinad that Roller tame to ask him fair Lillian's hand, and inferentialb for large sum of ready money. If there was anything, on earth this excellent hard ware merchant loathed, it was a German 'count. Next to an Italian Marquis, he esteemed them the most odious of their specie. Consequently his greeting to Roller was anything but concilatory. Mr. Burt - Robinson," said Koller, standing with his hamlsome head bared, and his hat held at a correct angle, come to you as the nearest and only mend of a young lady in whom I am deeply interested." " Go on, sir," snorted Mr. Burt-Robin son. " I am deeply attached to ber. I wish to ask her to be my wife. Not being familiar with the custom of the country I liave only my own instincts to guide me. I refer to Mademoiselle Jeanne Lefevre." Mr. Burt-Robinson jumped up and grasped Roller's hand warmly. "A most excellent young woman. Anything I, can do, yon may command me." " I can refer you to the German con sul," said Koller, fumbling in his card case. "You w ill perhaps understand me w hen I say that I prefer having certain circumstana-es iu my favor, perhaps remain unknown." He handed Mr. Burt-Robinson a card with his name, "Count Otto Von Roller," engraved on it, and in a corner a coronet. This last impress-.! the sturdy republican deeply. "If I can gain Mademoiselle Lefevre's consent, I would choose to be married at the French consulate here. I understand there is great simplicity in your marriage laws here, and if rightly vised by Ger man representatives here, it will be quite sufficient." 1 The law s of the United States, and of the State of New York in particular," impressively remarked Mr. Burt-Robinson, "are gissl enough for any man to get marrieal under." A. week or two after this, Koller and Jeanne were on the steamer sailing away tow arl Germany, with a cablegram from the parents of the bridegroom and an other from the mother of the bride, se curely laid away in Roller's pocket-book. Lillian was cross for a month or two, but, not being a bad-hearted girl, she pot over it, and found some compensation in brag ging of her menu Countess Maurice Koller. How a Smuggler Made a Wo man a Scapegoat. "We shall tie, my tlear mailame," said to a fellow passenger in the Dieppe boat, taking out my watch, but keeping my eye steadily uon her, "we shall be in less than ten. minutes at the custom house." A stiusm a flicker from the guilt w ith- in glanced over her countenance. 'You lawk very gooal-natured, sir," she stammered. I bowed.and looked considerably more so, in order to invite her confidence. 'If I was to tell you a secret, which I find is tisi much to keep mvself, oil, would you keep it inviolable?" 'I know it, my dear mailame I know- it already," said I, smiling; "it is lace, is it not?" She uttered a little shriek, and, yes, she had got it there among the crinoline. She thought it had been sticking out, you see, unknown to her. "Oh, sir," cried she, "it is only ten poumls' worth ; please forgive me, anal I'll never do it again. As it is, I think I shall expire." "My dear mailame," replieal I, sternly but kindly, "here is the pier, and the otlicer has fixed his eye upon us. I must do my duty." I rushed np the ladder like a lamp lighter; I had pointed that woman out to a legitimate authority ; I accompanied her upon her way to the searching house. I alid not see her searched, but I saw what was found main her, and I saw her fineal and dismissed with ignominy. Then, having generously given up my emoluments as informer to the subordi nate officials, I hurried off in search of the betraycil woman ta her hotel. I gave her lace twice- the value of that she hail lost, I paid her fine, anal then I explain ed : "You, mailame, had ten pounds' wairth of smuggU-al gissls about your person ; I had nearly fifty times that amount, I turneal informer, madanie, let me con vince you, for the sake of lioth of us. Yau have too expressive a countenance, believe uie, and the officer would have found you out at all events, even as I alid myself. Are you satisfied, my dear mail ame? If you still feel aggrieved or in jureal by me in any manner, pray take more lace ; here is lots of it." We partcai tfie best of frienils. A leading citizen of Hagerstown, Md., George W.

Negotiating for a Burro. Mr. Weaver is a temler foot from Buf falo. He has been here at the hotel abaatit a week seeking some means of getting up into the mountains. A gen tleman from Arizona suggested that he purchase a burro. He understood that a Mexican about a mile and a half away had a burro for sale. It was pretty warm in the midaile of the day when Mr. Wea ver started, but he had no difficulty in finding the Mexican's ranch, and as he was turning into the lane that led to the house a swarthy greaser rode np to the door on a gallop and dismounted. This proved to be the rancheo, anal upon be ing asked if be had a burro for sale he said, "Si, senor." The Mexican took Mr. Weaver out to a corral, where he showed him an animal that looked like an exaggerated specimen of the jackrabbitt ' The Mexican said the burro had been raised a pet; his wife Hera was very much attached to it; it was as gentle as a lamb; diJnt know how to; buck ; all the children rode it ; and if the gentleman would take it out the back way, so his wife would not see him he dkl not wish to have a scene, his wife's grief might pain the gentleman he might have tlie animal for 1-5. This was considerably more than Mr. Weaver wanted to pay, anal there appear ed to be a wicked look in the burro's eye which would have ntused him to doubt the Mexican's word respecting the brute's gentleness had not the ranchero apjieared so innocent and disingenioua. But Mr. Weaver had his mind set on a burro, and he concludes! tie would pay the price asked if the animal was as represented. "You say he won't buck? said Mr. Weaver. "Si, senor," he replied in his dulcet Latin dialect. "Well I want to see him rode first." The Mexican said he was not well that day and that it would make him sick to ride. Considering that he had seen the greaser lope up to the door just as he got there, Mr. Weaver allowed a doubt of the Mexican's honesty to cross his mind. "Well, I won't buy the animal if I don't first see him rode," said Mr. AVea ver. The Mexican said if the gentleman was so very anxious to see the beast rode, that to accommodate him, sick as he was, he would ride it for five dol lars. At this moment a female voice issued from the window of the hacienda. It said: 'Jesus Maria, don't you git on that mule unless you want to break your fool neck." 'Was that your wife?" said Mr. Wea ver. 'Si, senor." You say she don't want you to sell the burro r M, senor. "The donkey is gentle, won't buck, a pet r ''Si, senor." 'And want me to pay you five dollars to see you ride it T" "Si, senor." "Well, you must take me for a goll darned fool." "Si, senor," said the urbane Castillian in his liquid Latin language, as 31 r. Weaver rode away. Mr. Weaver is still on the lookout for a burro. St. Loui HrptiUiraiL. The National Road. How few know anything of "Tlie Na tional Road." It has been so eclipsed by railways that many well informed ik-o-ple don't know that such a structure was ever built. Rev. W. II. Baugh, until re cently pastor of the Cutulierland Presby terian Church, Rnoxvilte, furnished some interesting reiuiniscenses alsmt it to the Tribuunt. Rev. Dr. Howard, of the Cum berland Presbyterian, also knows a gissl deal of it Away back in ISIS there arose seriaus apprehension that the growth of the West would cause disaffected politicians to want a alifferent Capital a v estern Union " and during Monroe's Adminis tration Congress, under the advocacy of Henry Clay, "Tom" Benton, Gen. Lewis Cass, Thomas Ewing anal Antlrew Stew art, maale appropriations from the Na tional Treasury, and the work was vigor ously executed. Beginning at Cumlier- berlanal mountain, it extended across Pennsylvania, Virginia, Ohio and Indi ana westward. The ilesign was to cain- nect the National Capital with St. Louis. Tlie Deuiocraa-y opposed such appropri- tion of the nation's treasury, but in vain. ' Shtte rights' were ignored." The roaal lied was reduced to a grade of five de grees, was made 35 feet w ide, anal macad amized. The under part was chiefly of stone, placed on edge, as is now the case in cities, and covereal with pieces that would go through an inch and a half ring. The National Road was free to all. It was niaintai ned by the general govern ment for a dozen years, but in ls:0, through alcference to General Jackson's ideas of State sovereignty," it was turn ed over to the States through which it was built Many interesting reminiscenses might be given of this great thoroughfare and its wars. In 1,-CT, when war was threat ened lietween this country and France, there was such suspicion of sympathy be tween the French in Louisiana and tlie enemy that a ijuick mail route was estab lished via this road anal the Mississippi river. Contracts were let with the re quirement of sjaeeil to average ten miles jier hour. Tlie entire highway was laid off into sections, three bovs and nine horses being reajiiireal for sixty-three miles, and the time given for the trip was six hours and eigtheen minutes. Whether legal or not, the National Roaal was a popular thoroughfare. There were soon as high as 150 "great Coneshs ga six-horse teams" per day. That is the same number as tlie railnatd trains that pasM over the Pennsylvania Railroad now daily to and from Jersey City. There were four to five four-horse mail anal pas senger coaches each way daily. Presidents frequentetl this highway. anal on such occasions men were post as 1 at hilltops by the roadway to wave their real banalanna as a sigual of approach for the distinguished travelers. The people would assemble ami render both via-al and instrumental music. Much of the National roaal is still in gissl condition, anal its many histaaric as sociations are enlianced by nioalern pro gress. While the old cast-iron posts yet remain to tell of distances to places, etc., telegraph wires are abunalant, anal there is a combination of things ancient and nioalern which give to travelers by the old road much of rare interest. lf mated passengers over this road there are recorded the names of James Monroe and Andrew Jackson, William Henry Harrison and John Tyler, Dick Johnson (Vice President under Tyler), James R. Polk, Santa Ana, and the .Marquis de Lafayette. James R. Polk ! How the name stands ont on the list ! To be assured about the stories told on the subject. I called on the venerable Mrs. Polk. At my greeting she saial she was feeble, but has never in the several years k has been my fortune to know her ap peared quite so bright, so graceful and so elegant.

While specialties in farm proalucta are maale exceealingly profitable by a few farmers, anal the suix--s of these becomes an incentive to others to follow the ex ample, it should not be ignoreai that, from the nature of the cast-, spra-ial proihia-ta ian onlv rarely le maale a successful business, and if it were otherw ise the profits would be rcaluved by competition. so that there would ls no inalucement for fanners to engage in it Again, such a business n-ijuircs speeial oppa irtunities anal a degree of tact and aptitude in the farmer which is not often fisaml connect ed with the requisite opportunities. Si that in general it may be concluded that diversity of pnslua-ts is the only safe rule to follow, and the more varied the surplus of the farm may 1 the lietter for the fanner. It is, then, ta be considered what the farmer can prodnce that will suit his circumstances laest and be inajst readily saleable for the most money. Live stisk tills the bill in the most complete manner, and of all sorts of live stis k horses stand first in the respects named. Recently the British (iovern ment has sent aira-nts to Canada to pur chase several thousand hona-s for its cav alry anal artillery servia-e, anal the prices paial averaged fiam f l"s) to f 175 for such animals as were required. These were sound, active, nnslerate-sizcd laeawts, of no particular breeding, but able to do fair allotment of work. Such horses as would serve to do the regular work of the farm are the kind required, anal the pria-es paial are alsiut the same that fann ers are paying for their working teams. It seems strange to have to w rite this last sentence, for one might reasonably sup pose that the last thing that a fanner should have to purchase would lie horses to 1I0 his work w hen these animals are so easily and cheaply reared, and that he should be forveal to iay out fcMsl to $.'!50 if hard earned money for a team to do his work at short interv als of a few years. But the fact is so, and a prominent farm er of northern New York recently aver- real tjiat the farmers of his county (.Stra ta iga) annually paid out 10.(1 M for horses. I'nder these circumstances there is a profitable anal sure business for a lanre numlierof fanners men-lv to supply their own wants, na d taking into account the demands of the various imlnstrics which use so many horses, and w hich demand is constantly enlarging as population anal business increase, and the wants of the enormous anuiea kept up in Furope, so uselessly and so mischievously for the public welfare. It is very common for mankind to aspire to great things and despise the commonplace affairs of the world. Fann ers who think of rearing horses want the twenty -thousanil-alollar kind, or, perhaps, more mash-rate in their da-sires, would like to raise a few colts and sell them for $3)0 or $2i0 each. When a young farmer becomes imbua-al w ith these high notions he is on tho direct Mud to niin as a horse breeder. This class of horses never yet made any money for tha-ir breeders, but has mined hunalreals who have sjaent inherited fortunes in it. It is not the dianional or gold which makes the world rich, but the humble clay of which bricks are made, the coal, and the com main plate ironstone. In like manner it is the ordinary farm or road work horse which will brine wealth to the breealer. Nevertheless it should be the best of its kind. . No worn-out. dis eased, cast-off-frotn-wi irk mares iin rear the foals which will make money for their owners. None but sound, healthy, well-traineaL daa ile ilamsshonhl be used, anal these of a kind which will proalm-e good-sized colts; that is, of large, roomy build anal gissl bunt, but well pmpor tkneal. Tlie selection of the sire is of eqJtl importance. Ib-alth anil ca.nstitu tion are saec ially desirable qualities in a sire; temper is another important quali fication. Size is of little moment; this is given by the ilam, but firrore and every characteristic which denote mental qual ity should predamiinate in the male. Tlie selection of weekly aires has cunt horse breeders millions of money. There are some strains which have been intnsluceal into the Morgan blood in Vermont whia-h have ruined all the g-"l qualities of this naiteal fbumler of a most excellent stock, and if we were to have the offer of sires of such character free of cost they would be rejei-teal without a moment's hesita tion. For a useful class of work hones there are no better typical sires than the Clay ami Black Hawk strains of tlie Morgan blisl, ami inala-ed almost every cross of Morgan has pnsloced servn.-eable anal valuable progeny. The soundness of tlie sire in every re spect should be insisted upon. Even ac cidenta! alefeets are transmitted. Bliml ness is hereditary, and a large proportion of the get of a blind sire will law their sight in the first few year of their lives, anal few will pass their seventh year without exhibiting the defect of their progenitor.

Weaning Lambs. The tirst ale-ire aaf the shepherd it ta get a crop of stautial, healthful, vigoraaus iambs, the number being seci.analary ta the quality of it Twin lambs are not always tlesirable ; one large, string, sinyrte IsMib beina' lietter than twa weak, puny ones, wtwxe weakness lingers along through a short and unprofitable life. The nursing and rearing of the lambs up to a weaning age having been safely pasned throiti;h, it ia well ta consider how the last period of the lamb state can best be got a-iver. In maist flocks the lambs wean themselves by the graduai loss of milk by the ewes, and the weaning comes atwiut gradually and natuarly at the sea son when the ewes are again ripe for coupling. This is no doubt the best ami most satisfactory manner of accomplish ing this object, when tlie ewes can be proviiieai with a full supply of faioal or an abumlant pasture. But otherwise it is better to separate the lamlis in the pres ent month so as ta give the rwes some time tt get intai goal condition ft-r breed ing again. A ewe in poor condition is very apt to uiiss service, or to proaluaY a weak lamb, which stxvumh to the rigors of the season in its first few days of life, or a ewe that is emaciateal in the Fall will naat get flesh enaaigh in the Winter to put her in gissl order Car milking, and so the next lamb will nut only las weak, but will be starved. It is an instinct of a ewe to put her lamb out of the way as atam as possible when she has no milk, and it is (squally institutive for her to cherish her lamb when the full supply of milk gives her uneasinesta. The olaaen atit shephenl will soon see how the ewe which lias no milk will abanalon her lamb and drive it from the dry udaleranal useless teats, while another, with dis tendeal udder aud flowing testes, w ill use all her art tai coax tlie lamb to sua k, and pa-all it to the seut with gentle persuasive force. This is in true aa-conlauce with the law of nature, and should be well understaaoal by the shepheral so that he can manage his flask accordingly and provide the ewes with fisl as their needs may make necessary. And one part of this management is to separate the ew es from the lambs in good time for the fonn- er to recuperate and get into goasl condi tion for the attentions of the ram. The lambs should then be feal welL A gooal pasture should be provided, anal in aaldi- tmn a little grain fixsl will be useful whenever it can be' afforded. When Hocks are on a range this can scarcely be alone, but farm flis ks should certainly be manageal on this principle. When the prashia tiaan of mutton is the main ohjett in view the weaning of the lambs become a business of more than usual importance, because the male lam Is are sent to market, leaving the ewea in full milk to be manageal with great care to prevent garget and trouble with the udder. A ewe which had plenty of milk and whose lamb haal U-a-n lawt by acci dent and which haal been lost si-htof for a few i lays was found with a badly cakeal and fejatereal udder, which the fliea had blown, and the whole hinder part of the poor beast was covered with myriaals of the maggots, which haal eaten tlie flesh ty the baane in several places. Of course the ewe, which was one of the best of the fliak, was sac-rifia-ed. This will happen too frequently if care is not taken t provide against it. Again, when it is da-sired to wean tlie lambs fair the purpaase of fattening the ewes for market special management is needeaL The ew es should be kept w ell feal, anal at least a pint of grain or meal should be given daily. These ewes ate drafted off from the Hock anal penneal separately. The lambs are turneal off by themselves by day and put w ith the ewes only at night. This w ill gradually dry off the ewes and reduce the milk until it is safe to separate the lambs wholly from them. After this it will be necessary to milk some of the ewes, and take part of the milk every night until the udaler is alrieal off. Some times the uiilkiim of the ewes is not un-da-rstissl. The right way is to milk from behind anal use the finger and thumb. The milk need not he saved unless it can be used, but ewes' milk is a delia-aa-y, and can lie turneal to gissl use in the kitchen for making custards or for drinking. When a ewe will not stand a small frame should Is? provided in which she is fast ened by a strap around the neck ; the frame has two side-bars which keep her from turning around. It is convenient to have this sirtable, and to have a sup ply of them fair confining refractairy ewes which refuse to nurse their lamlat, and thus turn them to Itoth pun" Keeping Convicts Employed. A writer in the Boston llmiM tells of some of the device employed in Kngland to keep eonvia-ts employed : The convicts were man-heal into a large vara! and formed three side of a sapiare, standing als .ut five feet afatrt, faa-ing in war 1. Near ame end of the line was a pyramid of twenty-four pound cannon balls. In the centre of the square st.sxl the aiffia-er or guard. When all was reaaly he gave the order. "One," when every man moveal splewav nve feet to tin? right, which brought the man at the heaal of the line oppnaite the pyramid of balls. "Two." Fverv manstisita-aldaiwn. without licmliinr the knees, the first man taking a ball from the pile, the others going through the motion till a ball reaa-heal them. "Three." The men ii.ov eal lan k to their original places. "Four." They stasipeal down and plaa-eal the ball upon the ground not being alloweal to drop it. And so on, the movements a-on-tinued, the orders ipiickeneal at the will of the guard, till tlie balls were all con veyed through the line and piU-aiupat the other en.l. It required but a few minutes of these rapid nauveutents to bring every man into a state of profuse perspiration, showing that the labor was of the severest kind. A short time was alloweal the men taj rest, when they were air. 'in. calleal to order, and, by the same movement, the latlls were returned to their original plate ; and so on through out the lay, these cannon balls were passed forward and hack, with no object only to furnish labaar for the men. In the prisons established upon the sa.litary plan, where the convicts work in their cells, they have what they calleal the "crank labor," an iron cylinaler or drum two feet long ami eighteen or twenty inches in diameter, resting upon legs. A spin. Ik-, or shaft, is passvai through the drum, with a crank on one end fair turn ing it. Attached to the spindle within the dram, which' was filled with sand, were flat arms, making it necemary to use considerable Usrce to run it ; a duK, heavy drag.
