Homer Ashton one autumn evening
listened to stories of witches and ghosts
told aronnd him, and joined in them,
until he felt an occasional shiver creeping
down his back. Not that he be- 1
lieved in the supernatural, but the fire j
light into which he sat looking grew j
pleasan+er to him than the corners of the ;
great room, for lamps had been banished j
to accord with the subject under discussion,
and it seemed that the shadows j
flickering behind the youug people ;
grouped abou*, the grate of blazing coal j
were massive and weird, and that when ;
r.tiA olftnood at them sidewav? suddenly, i
W ?w o V - ? ]
there was something about them like |
ghostly visitors. When ho faced thc-m, j
to be 6ure, they were only ordinary
shadows. Homer was ashamed of him- ;
self, he was afraid his nerves were un- j
Bteady, and resolved to test them. He '
knew a way to do if.
Near the place at which he was stay- ,
ing, an English country house, were
the ruins of the older pait of a castle ,
said to have been built in the time of
the Crusades* The whole castle was at j
present uninhabited, but the part j
which had been allowed to fall into
hopeless decay was the width of the
courtyard away from the rest of the j
house. Probably it had once been con-1
nected with it by buildings which had
formed three sides of a hollow square, j '
but if so it had been left out in the I
changes made at different times, and i
now it was roofless, tho walls were
crumbled, and the underground portion ,
was all that made any pretense to a
habitation, and offered a suitable home j j
to the unearthly beings who were said
to roam in it, for a dampness covered |
all the stones and the air had a deadly j
chill. But these facts seemed con- ]
elusions from the nature of tilings | j
rather than the results of observation, j
for Homer could not find anybody who
had explored it. ,
Ghosts ought really to be forgiven a
good many faults, because they are in ,
general so unselfish about selecting i (
homes nobody else wants.
That evening, as Ashton connected
the reports of the place itself with sto- | '
ries of sights and sounds around it. he 1
found himself yielding so much to the '
influence of gossip that he determined |
to shake off the weakness and to trv : '
what stuff he was made of. He would j [
stand in those haunted halls and summon
the ghosts and see what would
happen. He knew well enongh that it
wonld be nothing.

others; be said merely that he was go- i ,
ing for a walk to blow away this ghostly
atmosphere by a little fresh air. No- |
body volunteered to accompany him. 1
night had never seemed more distaste- j 1
fnl to them all. They only looked at
each other significantly as he left them, 1
and said: 1
"Another Americanism."
There is an unreasoning element in j 1
human nature which assumes every in- !
dividuality of a foreigner to be a na- j
tional characteristic. Dr. Ashton, j
whom the son of the house had become !
acquainted with in London and brought!1
home with him for a visit, was to his I
entertainers an epitome of America, |1
and it must be confessed that at the j 1
end of a week they had come to have a j
good opinion of that country. J
As Homer walked on rapidly he saw I \
an occasional star in the tky, but it i J
seemed as if he never could get out of!1
the shadow of the trees, there were so J
many >1 them.
He soon came to the ruin, a mile I
away, opened the heavy gate and began
to descend the long flight of steps IjKlf.l t
ing into the corridors and rQ??lj under- ^
ground. What conld v^0 old place c
have been used for ? Did monks come 1
here for pi?vftsf and penances, or were
the^ftfangeons where captives taken in ?
"the petty warfare of those times felt the ?
personal vengeance of their captors?
He thought of the one described in | v
" Ivanhoe," into which Isaac the Jew I
was thrown, damp, dark, hung with ! t
chains and shackles, and where in the , s
ring of one set of fetters were two mold- n
ering human bones. It was no wonder ; fi
ghosts were said to baunt a place like i h
that. ti
In the midst of these thoughts the ! d
gate he had left open swung to with a a
clang, shutting out earthly things be- 1<
hind him. Step by step he went down g
the stone stairs into blackness to which o
the night outside was twilight Some- \ "
time3 he seemed to hear a sound, but p
when he stopped to listen it was the ; b
beating of bis heart. When he reached *
the foot of the stairs he still went on; : h
every now and then his outstretched ' h
hands struck against a wall or pillar, a
for he was passing through an arched
hall that ended in a narrow passage. | b
He next entered what he thought must h
be a large room, for the air had an in- i d
definable difference and the blackness ' fi
seemed that of space instead of sub- ! w

which way to move and the very echo ci
of his footsteps ceased, the horror of tl
darkness and silence which had been ir
growing upon him reached its height, it
He tried to utter his challenge, but his rj
dry lips would give forth no sound, an b
abyss of night seemed to swallow him 1 o
up. ti
Suddenly he fancied he heard a move-!
ment, he thought that something like J 81
palpable blackness flitted about him. j
He turned to fly and took a few hurried i tl
steps in the direction of the entrance. , si
Then he stepped. It was no ghostly ! ?
preslhce that arrested him, but the | I
iron hand of his resolution ; he had j a
come here to do a certain thing and | si
was not to be cowed by a feeling which ;
he would be ashamed to own to himseh a
in the daylight. He faced about and
went forward quickly a few steps. ft
"If there is any ghost let him now si
appear," he called loudly.

With arms folded be stood a moment ! s<
?the hardest thing of all to do?awaiting
results. If there had not been a ; d
roar in his ears, if the beating of his j
heart had not made even his vision nn- a
steady, he wonkl have said that he
heard subdued laughter, or moaning, it p
was impossible to tell which as the b
sound rolled toward him from the hoi- n
low sides, and that he saw something i b
like a whiteness in the diBtanee, while a i J
sense of presence made him cold with a
honor. a
He bad done all he had resolved to e
do and was free now to get out of tliis
dreadful place. He hurried toward a
the entrance, urged on by the unreason- g
ing sense of pursuit that comes over one i
when he turns bis back upon danger. ; c
All at once be lost his footing and iay ;
at full length on the plippery floor; the a
shock, however, only jarred and be- J i
'wildered him. As be put out his j t
bands to rise he touched something ; t
from which he drew back instantly with i *
a stifled exclamation; he thought it c
must be one of tho reptiles likely to t
be orawling in this don. Bat he recol- 1
lected that it was small and hard, per- a
haps it was a curious stone which would
pro re his night's excursion if the f
strangers he was with should be tempt- t
f?d to doubt it. After a little groping
be found it again; it felt like a stone
covered with slimy moisture, and patting
it into his pocket he made his way
out of the ruins as best he could.
When he returned to the house his
friend was alone waiting for him, and
sleepy, as Homer could see, consequently
a trifle annoyed at being kept
up so late. The guest said nothing
that night of where he had been.
In his room he took out the 6tone.
It was not a pebble or a piece of the
pavement, as he had supposed, but an
oval of grayish lava that had once been
a brooch or part of a bracelet. As he
cleaned it with his penknife and pockethandkerchief
he saw that the work upon
it was beautiful; it was a figure of
Minerva, the very folds in her tunic
carefully cut, and, as he saw by his
rrsaprnifying-glass, with a light tracery
of carving on her hemlet and shield.
On tliA nnnnsitft side, iust under the
shield, was the word " Violet."
It was evidently the owner's name,
bnt who was she ? Where did she live,
and when ? The pin, if it were a pin,
had not lain in its last hiding-place
long, he thought, it was not enough
stained by the dampness, yet he was
not sure about that. " Violet" might
belong to a former generation or might
have been sleeping the sleep of the just
for a century. But suppose not, suppose
she were a young lady beautiful
as her name, wealthy and high-born?
Well, what then?
Homer put oat his light and went to
bed, but not immediately to sleep. The
affair seemed to promise an adventure ;
as such it would have been interesting
to any young person. But Ashton, in
addition to being barely twenty^ five,
had been obliged to make his way for
the last ten years; for though he was
of good family, Dame Fortune had
started him in life with no more than
one of her pennies, which, however,
every time a man tarns it, as in the
legend, leaves a gold-piece in his hand.
The next morning but one a tall
young man with dark hair and eyes and
an expression amused, yet resolute,
handed in his card at Grantham hall
and asked to eeo its owner, SirGresham
"Dr. Homer Ashton," cricd Sir
Gresham, looking up from his letters
displeased at the interruption. "Who's
he? I don't k-now any such person.
Bervl," to the servant, "what does he
look like?"
" As well, Sir Gresham, only spryer."
"Ob, 'spryer,' is he? In his head or
his heeJs, I wonder ? Well, I suppose
I irust see what the fellow wants; one
of those genteel sponges come to sack
np as many pounds as I'll give to their
deuced charities," he muttered, isy
which speech it ie fair to conclude that
Sir Gresham had been sponged in this
way more than once.
But when Homer, who was admiring
the view from the drawing-room window,
turned and bowed as the bare net
approached, Sir Gresham peroeived
nothing of the suppliant about him and
began to doubt whether this elegant
stranger did mean to make him a few
pounds the poorer by his visit. He
came forward and requested his visitor
to be seated. Ashton spoke of the
beauty of the country and Sir Gresham
answered him, but at the moment curiosity
was evidently his ruling passion.
" Yon are wondering why I came,"
said Homer. " Certainly it was not to
tell yon, what everybody knows, that
this is the finest situation about hore.
But I have in my possession part of an
ornament which, I believe, belongs to
Miss Laud."
" You! What is it ?"
Ashton bowed and smiled also, as
he handed the other his discovery of
the night but one before. " Does it belong
to your daughter?" he said.
But Sir Gresham was too bewildered
to answer him.
1' That ?' he cried. " (ioocl neavens!
that? Where did you find it? It's a
"A clew to what?" cried Homer,
eagerly. He folt on the brink of dissovering
how a lady'B ornament could
some in so strange a place.
Bnt Sir Gresham was too excited by
some suggestion awakened by the 6ight
of the stone to have an idea of trying
to satisfy any curiosity bnt his own.
"Where did you find it?" he [repeated.
"Is it /our daughter's?" [returned
" Yes, it must be hers," and remembering
at last to thank the young man
for returning it, he stool with the stone
in his hand waiting impatiently for a
foil account of its recovery.
"Does Sir Gresham Laud suppose
that I came here for the purpose of
telling a midnight adventure to hiu?"
thought Homer, as a look of amusement
Bitted across his face. "If you will be
so kind," he answered, suavely. " as to
ask Miss Laud if she will do me the
favor to identify her ornament, I shall
be most happy to tell you, and her if
9he cares to know, how I came by it."
Sir Gresham hesitated only an instant.
" Assuredly," he said, and sent
for his daughter.
The yonng man's heart beat faster at
the sound of light steps behind him.
Suppose Violet were plain and heavylooking,
yet suppose?he turned hastily,
bnt not too soon for the beantifnl
face that was cording toward bim.

ban this be spoken at the moment.
Jhe greeted him with a simplicity that
iharmed him; but when she saw the
nedallion in her father's hand she cried: i
" Oh, papa, my bracelet-clasp; where i
lid yon get it? Have they fonnd ont
he robbers
Homer's eyes opened wide at her
"Robbers?''he repeated. "That's it,
hen? Perhaps I really did hear and
ee something after all.'' And after a ;
aoment in which three people stood
acing each other with looks of inquiry
e began an account of his expedition 1
d the ruin. He was truthful in every '
etail, yet the story sounded remark- 1
Uly well as he told it, watching Vio- 1
at's face and seeing Oliver and 1
row pale in imagining the blackness \ 1
f the old cellars. If she would but I
love him for the dangers he had 1
assed he knew nothing of wars to J
e sure, except of personal struggles 1
'ith misfortune, out of place to be told '
ere, yet having left their matk upon 1
im in a consciousness of power to dare *
nd conquer advorse circumstances. 1
" I've no doubt they carried their '
ooty there," exclaimed Sir Gresham, *
is thoughts still in the ruins an infinite i
istance behind the young man's winged j '
incy and supplementing the narrative j J
hich Ashton had jast finished. "While 1
iolet was listening to her father's ac- <
aunt of a daring burglary committed 1
le winter before while the family were <
1 the house, Ashton had an opportnn- t
y to stndy her face more critically, or, t
ither, more admiringly. It was possile
he did not droD all the admiration j
ut of his expression as from time to
me she turned to him to explain more j ?
illy something that her father was j ]
lying. j ^
" I've no doubt the villains bring ! 1
heir booty miles to hide it in the ruin," : <
lid Sir Grcsham. "This medallion j <
as the clasp of a heavy gold bracelet, j 1
t was given to my daughter by a friend ! *
nd she is much obliged to you, I am I :
are, for finding it." | 1
" Indeed lam," said Violet, coloring , (
little as she spoke J
" It is I who am under obligation to ! <
ite." answered Homer; " I have found i
omething that Miss Laud values." <
"The rest of the bracelet has been i
lelted down long ago," pursued Sir 1
rresham. " That place ought to be i
marched." (
" Yes,'' said Homer; " when will you <
O it:" !
The baronet looked somewhat taken <
back at this energetic suggestion.
" No doubt," he answered, " and 1
erliaps, Dr. Ashton, you would like to i
e one of the party if I go with some of I
ly neighbors? I suppose it ought to t
>e done as soon as possible?within a 1
.ay or two," he went on, as the other i
ssented, " lest they should take alarm <
t your intrusion upon them. "When i
bould you advise going?"
" This moment," cried Homer. "It's
, wonder that we Americans have any <
?ass in our country," he added, smil- I
ng, " we are 60 averse to letting it grow '
mder our feet."
He met Violet's eyes as he finished,
,nd read in them an admiration and
nterest. In another moment she had
urned away on some trifling pretext, but,
mdoubtedly, she was blushing. How
fas Homer to know that she had once j1
leclared sbe would marry th<} man who '
>rought htr back l?r bracelet clasp? I
["hat, however, was when she was quite I
ure it would never be found.
" Xot until after luncheon, papa, will
-on?' she Baid. "You'd better not
ake Dr. Ashton until after that."
Several years later, when the medallion
had led to more than the finding
of stores of plunder in the old rnins
which a gang of thieves had taken care
to make appear haunted, Homer Ashton,
a physician of high standing, was
living in a lar^e American city. A
schoolmate whom he had not met for
years said to him one day at dinner as
tney were talking of marriages and
dea'hs among their comrades:
" By the way, Ashton, you never told
me whero you first met your wife. I
only know that it was in England."
Homer laughed.
"I first mot her." he said, "behind
Minerva's shield. Did I not, Violet?"

A UaHhful Younar .linn's Speech.
A young lady who graduated from a
high school last July is teaching: school
in New Hampshire. A bashful young
gentleman visited the school the other
day and was asked by the teacher to say
a few words to the pupils. This was
his speech : "Scholars, I hope you
will always love your school and your
teacher as much as I do." Tableaugiggling
boys and girls and a blushing
Kate Field on Drras.
Ivate Field has written and continues
to write some curious things. Among
the latebt effusions of that gifted lady J
is the following in Our Continent:
There certainly are no women in
the world who think so much about
dress or devote so much time to it as
Americans. The result, however, is
hardly commensurate with the expenditure
of timo and money. To think
about dress does not necessarily involve
what is seriously called thought. "When
monkeys actliko men we do not accuse
them of thought. We attribute to them
a wonderful power of imitation. In
dress we are nothing but monkeys.
We have not yet acquired sufficient
taste or knowledge to make our own
fashions, so wo wait for the modistes of I
Paris to tell us what; they please and
then adopt their ideas regardless of
consequences. France is the most artistic
nation in Europe, but we should
take our France with discretion. What
is suitable for one is not necessarily
suitable for all, and it is well known
that costumes prepared for the American
market are "louder" iu style than
those intended for home customers.
American patrons are sought because
they are willing to pay extravagant
nrices. but their judgment, as a rule,
does not command respect.

A Whale's Blow-Hole.
A new white whale having been
brought alive from the Gulf of St. Lawrence
to London, Mr. Buckland thus
speaks of its wonderful pieie of mechanism,
the blow-hole: I
The first unaided idea, of course, is
that an animal destined to live in water
must be a fish, and, of course, breathe
by gills. I once terribly offended an
old salt by telling him a whale was not
a fish.
"Hang it, man !" he sajs, "I'vebeen
at sea man and boy for forty years, and
low you tell me a whale is not a fish."
A whale, however, is pure mammalian
like ourselves. The yourig are born
alive and suck milk; their blood is
warm; they have a four-cavitied hearttheir
bones, muscles, nervous .a^iem,
resemble in structure those of mam
malian. But the orders ai^ that these |
great mammalia are live all their
lives in the waters .Yithout ever coming
out. OthM^e^tures, notably the
hippopotaryjq and the walrus, seals,
et^prf^Qte out of the water when they
choose, but get their food in the water.
How then, is the breathing of these
anima'.s to be managed ? In the seal,
etc., we find self-acting valves that close
the apertare in the nostrils as tight as
a cork in a wine-bottle when the creature
descends beneath the waves. In
the whale we find altogether a different <
kind of self-acting breathing valve.
The winlpipe does not communicate I
with the moutb; a hole is, as it were, i
bored right through the head.
Engineers would do well to copy i
the action of the valve of the whale's <
blowhole; a more perfect piece of structtfre
it is impossible to imagine. Day
and night, asleep or awake, the whale
works his breathing apparatus in such ]
i manner that not a drop of water ever '
gets down into the lungs. Again, the J
whale must.of necessity stay a much
longer period of time under water than |
seals, etc. This alone might possibly
irown him, inasmuch as the^lungs can- ,
lot have access to fresh air. We find
;hat this difficulty has been anticipated .
md obviated by a peculiar reservoir in
ihe venous 6jstem, which reservoir is 1
iituated at the back of the lungs. Seem- 1
ngly this is unimportant, but it is of
.he greatest practical service to whalers. J
[f the harpoon wounds this reservoir !

the whale has no valves in the 1
reine useful to him in his subaqueous
ioings, but fatal to him when he has 1

Location of a Poultry Farm.
Poultry broeding has advanced so
rapidly from the condition of an experiment,
carried on in places few and
far between and in the quietest manner,
to a business known the length and
breadth of the country, and affording
employment as well as pleasure to
thousands of people, that the question
of how it is to be systematized is one of
the greatest importance.
The foremost consideration ia naturally
the location of the farm. It ia an
impression as widely spread as it is
groundless that the best placo for ope-:
rations of this nature is some barren
spot too poor to be used for any other
purposes. This is a mistake of the
very worst kind, and of itself is cause
enough for the failure of the whole undertaking.
The soil of the poultry farm is one of
| the most important subjects, and should
be the first considered. It is not enough
1 * 1 ?ia - ?ii J ?
that tiio Jaua suouia uo wen uruuieu
and have a suitable exposure to the sun,
while it is sheltered from the attacks of
chilly storms - it must also be arable.
To utilize the manure from the large
number of hens which will naturally be
kept on such o place, it must have a
certain amount of cultivation. Were it
possible to dispose of this fertilizing
material at its value without conveying
it a distance to a market at considerable
I expense, it would be by far the best
plan to not attempt to mix the labors of
a farmer with those of a poultryman.
But it is rarely the case that railroad or
other facilities for selling are to be
found conveniently near a fairly lowpriced
piece of arable land.
We must, then, make arrangements
for utilizing this product upon the
ferrn itself, in a way to supply the
wants of our stock as nearly as possible.
Naturally we shall seek for those
grains and vegetables which are at once
most easily grown and best adapted to
our wants. Corn, which plays such an
important part in the list of provisions,
will occupy a leading place, and all the
roots which go to make up the green
food 60 necessary to every flock must be
cultivated liberally.
Soil which must be made to turn out
the crops we have mentioned cannot be
of the wretched character generally
thought gocd enongh for the purpose.
Land may be waste in the sense that it
is unbroken, and is simply nsed for
pasturage, and y.et be suitable, but an
incorrigible sand or poverty-strioken
gravel can never be the best field for
poultry farming, because the manure of
the poultry cannot be economically applied
to such a soil.?World.

to restrict Chinese emigration the President
assertB that the suspension of tho coming of

years would bo a breach of onr national faith
as pledged to China in the troaty of 1830.
He reviews the negotiations at the forming
of the treaty, to show that neither of tho
contracting parties contemplated tho passage
of an act containing a prohibition of emigration
for twenty yoars, or thought that such
a period would bo a reasonable saepension or
limitation. Ho adds that ho is deeply connf

on this subject, and point* out features of
this act which, he thinks, could bo modified tj
advantage Ho aays the system of personal
registration and passports is undemocratic
and hostile to tho spirit of our Institutions.
The Chinese minister has reminded him that
tho bill makes no provision for tho tran-it
across tho United States of Chinese subjects
now residing in foreign countries. Good faith,
and good policy too, ho thinks, require us to
suspend tho emigration of Chinese laborers
for a loss period than twenty years. No
one, tho President asserts, can say that
the country has not profited, by tho work
of the Chinese; and tho Pacific States, he
declares, are full of evidences of their industry.
Now it iB supposed they are not needed there,
but tlioro may bo other sections of the country,
ho fauggeets, where their labor may bo advantageously
employed without interfering
with tho labors of our own race. Finally,
the President declares that the trade of
China has been very valuable to us,
and especially to California, and that
the policy of this bill must repel it. It may
be, ho says, that tho great and paramount in
terest- of protecting our labor from Asiatic
competition justifies us in a permanent adoption
of this policy ; but it is wiser in the first
place to make a shorter experiment, with a
view hereafter of maintaining permanently

Indigestion's Martyrs.
Half thediseases of the human family spring
from a disordered stomach, and may be prevented
by invigorating and toning that abused
and neglected organ 'with Hot;tetter's Stomach
Bitters. Let it bo borne in mind that the liver,
tho kidneys, tho intestiue', the muscles, the
ligaments, the bones, the nerves, the into^u- i
ments, are all renewed and nourished by tho
blood, and that the digestive organ8 are tho
grand alembic in which [the materials of the
vital fluid are prepared. When tho stomach
fails to provide healthful nourishment for its
dependencies they necessarily suffer, and tho '
ultimate result, if the evil is not arrested, will
be chronio and probably fatal disease somewhero.
It may bo developed in the kidneys in
the form of diabetis, iu the liver as congestion,
in the muscles as rheumatism, in the nerves as
paralysis, in the integuments as scrofula. Remember,
however, that each and all of the*e
consequences of indigest.'on may bo prevented
by the timely and regular uso of that sovereign
antidote to dyspepsia, Hostotter's Bitters.
TnE moment anything assumes tho shape of
a duty, some persons l'eel themselves incapable
