Tt Ft. . , A STOBY OF THE PLAGUE. bom time In the first twenty rears of this century one of the Van Horns of Mew York, with an Irish gentleman named Daly, made a tour of the Southern States. The men were ' friends, young, shrewd and energetic; they bad each a moderate capital to invest in man ufacturing purposes, and were strongly tempt ed to try the South aa an unbroken field lor inetr enterprise, l ney were ao hospitably ., welcomed everywhere as to nuke their Jour- , nev a kind of triumphal progress, Being young, they drank, diced, flirted, and went with aqua; seat alternately to camp-meetings and to races; but, being shrewd, they brought their money home again to Invest. -It will never do, Daly," aaid Van Horn. It la the wagon for these very plantations . which we mean to make. Here ta the lumber, the water-power, cheap fuel, and cheap labor; . but, for all that, we must go a thousand miles awsy to make the wagons.1 Daly nodded and laughed. The end of the ' matter, aa far aa he waa concerned, waa that he invested his money In the Northern wagon - : factory, but that he married and nettled In Alabama. There was sntnethtng that reminded the Irishman of home In the establishments of these lavish land princes of the Gulf States. Daly relished with keen appreciation every . feature of this life the gambling, duelling, . lavish geasroaltj, devout church -going, paav rtooste lore of family. To Van Horn It was all alien and distasteful. I tell you," be said, vehemently, one day, as they discussed It. "there is a stupor in the - moral atmosphere, like malaria In a sunny air. It Is rather agreeable, I confess, in the rich planter. It Is a virtue when it hows Itself In . hla princely hospitality and good humor. But see what It does for these poor w hires in towns, the name class that with us would be mechanics, shrewd tradesmen, or "Shrewder thieves I" suggested Daly. -," - They ere walking, aa they talked, on the . wharf of a border town on the Ohio a town , . which has since been converted bv Northern aapnaissia into a mass ox iron ioundrtea, but which was then a drowsy village. The pigs woica was than a drowsy vlllswe. The pin tramped leisurely through Its one lour muddi treet, or rooted under the porches draped with rosea and red booejsackle; black pulli Trapeo rk Miffa of smoke from the low stern -wheeled boats at the wharf drifted lastly up against the hills ' that walled ia the town with ramparts of splendid autumnal color. The wind, blowing from oS the river, was cold and bracing; there was a smell of bitumen la it. The redbrick of the bouses were streaked with sooty shad ows. The same bitumen colored the clouds until they lay In masses of Intense crimson and emerald up hiirher and higher aealnat the orae roor overhead. y" . Horn PUnced critically about him. "Juat look, Daly!" he said. " Nowhere is na ture more prodigal. These hills are full of eoaland minerals; the soil la rich as that of the West Indies; yet nowhere will you see such contented poverty. See that fellow !" touching: lightly with his foot a lacy fat lout who lay stretched on a pile of hogsheads. "That's a fair specimen of the cUiiot rant, ngged. and brutaL- I'll wager anything you choose that be will go on sleeping in the sun until the end, and die as much of a brute as ever." Daly glanced at the boy, and the generous color rose to his eheeka. " N thlna. .- . . .kind," he said, hastily. "This lad has aa rood V etirn in him aa you or I, and he means to be a nan. umn on ; it is nearly time for the boat mtmn. in wugut io oecarerui, van Horn," be said, when they had passed up the wharf. ' " Tbst boy was not asleep, and you cut him - mmj tin saaa-aa. r Looking back, they saw that he waa stand ing watching them. A few minutes later . - hwj came uown irom the hotel to go on board the little steamer which lay puffing and snort- ing at the landing, and Daly caught sight of "stsmu-aiaoaing spartirom the crowd, looking eagerly at him. He was Zack Nealy, a "bound boy," who c. . drove a dray for Pettit Clay, a forwarding aware npou ue wnari. ue wanted to see this - paUemaa agsla who said be had the stuff In him Of which gentlemen in m.H 7-w - probably had sever thought of himself before as any thins; but the driver of a dray. He was - ' keen, eager, and, like Daly himself, he had a - drop of Irish .blood in him. There waa not a point In this good prophet's face, figure, or bearing Which he did not note the gallant si " ere, coiuroiiea voice, even " ";, ncn, iur-u-immeo surtout , - The boy's heart waa beating like a drum ' hard against his chest. "As good stuff In ma I Jtt a man like that like that!" He did not open his Moo, but It seemed to him that he r shun wiiu excitement. Daty stepped over the gangway, and then aa the boat shored from shore looked again in the crowd forth boy. Ha had said what he did from mere compunction and the good-natured wish to atone for Van Horn's beedleaa nese; the same kindly pity filled his mind aow, and made him, when he caught the lad's eye, smile snd raise his hat aa he would do to aa equal. Zack stood stunned for aa instant, then he took off hla old hat. -" He shall never be ashamed of having . doo that to wm! ho iniii n.. Vi wfcrf to keep the boat and the fur- arure on oecx in sigliL. He followed it for a mile or two, until it swept around the bend and was lost. Then he sat down among v the pawpaw bashes oa the shore, hla hands - STZTil rsma gneea, his I are red, - hla half-shut eyes speaking new thourhta. An American "wharT rat" would hare - been immeoaery tattered by this thing-, and hare forgotten it ta a day. But there is a good deal of germinating power in hot Irish rut a live Idea Into is with klil. tnnrh - i 1 1 . T .. JlIiaa7 near ox years Tbs live idea had come to Zack. The aan went down behind the Ohio hills a the other side of the river; now and then there was a plash in the shallow, dun-colored a greed T Dike rhsant th - up to the bank; a black beetle toiled painfully ow the red aad yellow bad of pebbles at his . . jiiuT peepea out of the pur ple Iroo-weeds behind him. Zack winked back us uny anming eyea. - Kven that darned little rat wishes i me it luck," he thought. He as thougtttfuUy shying pebbles intn the wasex.j ana cnucsung aloud now and then. A , few rods further down the river were the sheds under which the Pomeroys were trying to make window-glass. Some of the work mea had cosse out half naked from the fur I?6" odrp Jounrlng about. Jack knew , them all; he of tea ran for their drama, and drank with them. " Hare, Zack 1" on of them called, holding up a ston ixtf. B H hook hU head. "They're a food friends aa I n got, but Fm a-goln' to take another track now." His new purposs seenMd Hke ire burning In -him. Hs got np and walked reeUossly up and . own, , ... f The men went into tbs mills. The sun had down; a damp twilight was gathering. TJF5??,Sl7w f-lsxs nnrered above the ' Mo of Ohio hills, and a red pillar of - rose from the chimneys of the works. For the first Olme in his life the boy felt unite , nlon la the world. Thla desperate weature seemed lmpractirable In the night; it took hla breath to think of It. It would be so much easier to go oa to-morrow driving the dray. ! boarding at Mrs. Tanart's. " At that moment utre cam rrom the other : tide of the river the sound of music an air - played oa a violin. It waa a Highland call to battle, full of rough vigor, aad a strange melancholy aadegaaata. At another time the lad probably would not hare noticed it, but his t Irish hwagtnatkKi was at fever-beat now. It - seamed Ilka a vole ealHag to hla.' "Com ap higher," it said "higher." .. H listened, without raovinf;. until the ' last not died away. - Then he rose slowly and , went hack to the town. He used to say, for yaara afterward, "It waa aa air oa a violin j that waa my salvation. I'd give fir year of my life to hear it again." The road upward before aa ambitious poor boy was broad and easy enough among the generous Southern people, at that time. It was only necessary lor Zack to go, as be did the next day, to hi master and employer, and ssv boldly that he wanted an education, and the chance to make a man of himself. Colonel Pettit laoked at him with lazy astonishment, then clapped htm on the back. "By gee, sir. I didn't think it was In you! I'm deuced proud of you, Zark, by gee 1 per vided it lasts overnight. Well, sir, if you really mean the thing, you can count on Joeiah Pettit." The Colonel gave him half of his time and a wheelbsj-rowfulof old school books. Every body helped the boy, every body advised him. A boy who actually wanted to atudy, to work, to push himself on, was a black swan in the little town, of which It was bully proud. Through thla sunny, sluggish atmosphere, therefore, young Neally urged his wsy for seven years. Colonel Pettit cancelled his lo- laentures when he was sixteen. He was by rturns clerk on a river boat, a teacher, and snipping overseer lor rettlt and day. f inally be took the course usual then with lads In the smaller Southern town. He aet out for the river cities, armed with a sheaf of "circular IntrortoetiorjV from business men, and money enough to support him far a month. In those halcyon days this waa enough outfit for a boy going into the world to seek his fortune. The larger towns were ready and glad to absorb the vigorous young blood of the province. Zack had situation offered to him la Cincin nati and 8t; Louis, and accepted one in the house of the Chouteaus in the latter city. While there he studied medicine in his spare hours, andaved money to pay for two winter eoursee of lecture in Philadelphia. After that he practiced in the hospitals, and settled at last in a growing town of Western Pennsyl vania. Be was strongly minded to go back to his old home. Every man in It was bis friend. He would rather bare tramped over ita mud dy, sooty streets than have trod on fields of thyme and rose elsewhere. The very smell of Its greasy smoke was sweet to his nostrils. But Colonel Pettit advised him not to come. " A doctor must have a certain prestige," he said. " He must be the social equal of hit patients, no we're au mighty proua 01 you, Zack; but" "I understand. That' all right," Inter rupted Vealy, biting the end of his mustache nervously. "That thar dray, you aeel It's ondytn', that sort of remembrance, with Virginians." So Nealy, not without a certain angry ache at hta heart, settled among strangers. One or two lucky hits soon discovered to the public of Flnnburgh that he was far In advance of It two old physician a regarded modem science- He showed an old-fashioned, distinct courtesy toward wttfnen, too, very winning in a young man. With men, on the contrary, .Zack was an Inveterate talker; the Irish gift of telling anecdotea eras an unknown art In slow old Flnnburgh, and Zack, having knocked about a good deal in the world, had a capital kstory to fit every occasion. Before a month nad passea, every man in the borough felt himself In some sort a partisan of this Jolly, stout, Jewish-faced young doctor. He was asked everywhere to dinner, to tea. Most of the eligible young women of the country were discussed aa suits ble wive for him. Ton beard hi ray, infectious laugh everywhere. The truth Is, the fellow was thoroughly hap py in hi new quarter. This friendly recog nition was the success which he craved. At heart he was still the homeless boy, hungry for companionship and affection. Aa for money, be took no account of it not even enoogb. hla enemies say, to pay hla debt, whlcu, by tb wsy, I am afraid was true. - When he had been settled in Flnnburgh for a year, the Bhiras family came into the neigh borhood. They were of English extraction. and belonged to a race of scholars. There did not seem to be much money in the family, yet the men belonging to it took no mesne to add to It income, but went on with their leisurely researches into the life of ancient Greece and the habitat of spiders calmly as if tbev had been millionaires. It wss a new Idea to Nealy as It would be to most Americans that men of straightened circumstances could fiod other and higher employment for life than the mak ing of money. It pleased him immensely. He went often to the plain little cottage back of the pine. The repose, the unfathomed cult ure and wit hinted under their careless, triv ial talk of every day, the mere fact that the stock of this family had been honorable gen tlefolk for centuries It was all a glimpse into a new world to Nealy. This waa the Brahmin das which he had longed to enter. He watched the daughter of the house, rriscilla, at Bret with a kind of reverent awe and won der, ah being, as hs thought, the highest type of this high class. She wss not naturally aa clever, probably, aa the young girl of the town; but she had not an idea In common with them. Their talk waa of house work, of vulgar finery, and vnhrarer flirtation. Prise il ia knew no more of these thing then of the squabble of th flab-women on the river bank. Bhe had spent most of her life In traveling through tb beautiful places in the world; her companions were men who dealt with great facts and kleaa. They had hedged the girl in from all rough unseemliness with a fine cour tesy. In Zack's view she dwelt apart upon a height; it did not, Indeed, at first occur to him that he could ever climb to a level with this young gentlewoman. Her father and un cle msde a companion of Dr. Nealy. They found a genuineness and delicacy of feeling In the young fellow which were different from the other Finn burghers. " He ia nndoubt edlv a man of good breeding and birth," said Mr. Peter Sbiras one day. "On the contrary, be ha hinted to me that be bss struggled up from extreme poverty," rAlied rriscilla' father. uThat may be," retorted Uncle Peter, tak ing off his eyeglasses. " There were many scions of good families who landed penniless in Virginia. I never am mistaken in the spe cie of a man, any more than of a spider." For three or four months young Dr. Nealy' mind waa full of his new friends, whether be was In market, or in church, or at the bed side of a patient. He thought, probably, that he was studying them a a species, Miss Sbiras being the best specimen. He hsd that sense of ownership in them which we have in a fine landscape which we alone have discovered. He could not tolerate th mention of them from any ordinary Flnnburgher; and when once a decent old farmer spoke of "that daughter ot Shirs," though he did it re spectfully enough, Zack could scarcely re- vu miisiuk Sim He did not know what this meant until one day late in June. He had gone out with a night moth to Mr. Peter Shirs ; he hsd fallen Into the habit of taking out specimens after his last round ot visits was over. It only needed a few momenta for Uncle Peter to prove to everybody that the specimen were worthless, and then they would have tea un der the pine, while Priscilla, In her pale blue mws, aat a i ne uiue isoie aad oiled the caps. This evenine aha waa snt ik. Nealy glanced quickly around while be was talking of the moth. He saw her riding down uv ivw, m auuueriv-iooaing man Deside her. "That Is Henry Shlras," said Uncle Peter, following hla eve. " a cousin far Mmwi There was eom-t plan when Mis Shlras was a child of a betrothal between them. But the young people settle such things altogether lor tnemaelve in this country. No, no. Dr. neaiy, you are quite mistaken about this moth. Look at its nlfass." Then it was that Dr. Nealy first knew what had happened to him. He went home, prom ising to come back later in the evening. It was a very comfortable, even luxurious, home to which he went, A little money could command much in that cheap neighborhood. In a city the house, with its slope of lawn and forest about It, would have been reckoned a stately dwelling. Nealy went restlessly up vuu muwb uio una swi cauDDwi, trying to reason to himself. What had he to do with the ohirssee, or their marrying and giving In marriage! He had filled up hi thought and life with them lately, but he was apt to be vehement In hi friendships. He bsd even furnished this house aa he bad fancied Pris cilla would have done hsd It been here, but that waa because she waa the only woman of her class that be hsd known, and he wanted to raise himself to her level Was that what he wanted t No, a thousand time not Ha wanted her nar the woman herself I Soul and flesh and blood. He saw hi abject folly now, and the extent of it. Presently he went down to a hedge bordering the road where they must pass. When be saw them coming he crossed It and stood out on the wagon track, it seemed to him a if he could wrench the secret from her by a look, and know what he was to her, whether all or nothing. He could not wait an hour to kuow it. Other men might woo gently and slowly the woman they loved, but Nealy had the Instincts of his progenitors, who carried off their wive by one fierce as sault. Beside, he never had loved before, and there waa all th fore and depth In his passion which other men spend In fancies and flirtation from their schooldays up to mid die age. Miss Shir, a she came up, waa looking down, shyly listening- to her cousin. She glanced at him when be paused, an admiring mile lighting her delicate face. "She has listened to me with her head drooped in that way a thousand times," mut tered poor Nealy, "and smiled in Just that fashion when I had done. What doe it ean I' ll only meant that PrtsefHa waa a well-enn- d acted young woman; deferential to all men ss her natural superiors ; of an affectionate, dependent disposition, too, and apt to cling to the last person who talked to her. Mr. Henry Shlras naturally waa atartled b the apparition of this stout, haggard voung in the middle of the road, who took ntf hla hat aa Priscilla passed, and forgot to put it on again. Zack was torn and controlled by this feeling which had broken bound as ab solutely aa If be were a boy of sixteen. "Most extraordinary behavior I" exclaimed Mr. Bhlraa. Who ia that person, Priscillal" Mis Shlras flicked her horse's ear nerv ously with the whin. "Ol that la nr. a man whom papa has noticed a good deal laseiy. a very una person Indeed, Henry," ta a Stronger voice, Uncle Pater thinks kin aa admirabl Judge of moths." " Better Judge of moth than of manners, I suspect. What doe ha mean bv staring after vou like a maniac I Another specimen of that insolent American familiarity which you all seem to relish so much." "I do not relish it, Henry," said th gentle Priscilla. " Why, yon were commending thla fellow Just now." "O no! I said he was very clever a to moth. But hi manner, of course Ke i$ au American, you know. He baa bad no op portunity of discovering the difference between himself and a thoroughly well-bred man." Her soft eyes were fixed thoughtfully on her cousin' face. They gave the meaning to her word. They stopped at the cottage Just then, and when the soldierly young fellow lifted her from her borse, she smiled confidingly back to him. Yesterday Nealy had lifted her from her bora and received the smile. Not that there was grain of coquetry in the girj. But her cousin Henry was so soldierly, so friendly, so English, while Nealy yet really Nealys only fault waa that be waa out of eight. Not out of bearing, however. The hot-headed doctor had followed them down tbe dusty road and heard much of their criticism on himself. It did not hurt nor even surprise him that Priscilla spoke thus ot him. Wasn't It true I What waa be but a bound boy, a drayman aping tbe gentleman I She knew it she, standing on her height. As for Henry Shlras, he did not think for a moment of the man. He all other men were nothing to him. Tbe world wa empty but for himself and this girl. Nealy stood hidden by th lilac bushes while young Shirs took leave of her and can tered down tbe bill. She stood irresolute a minute in the doorway, and then, turning Into tbe library, she sat down by tbe piano and be gan to sing softly to herself. Her conscience feebly troubled her. She should not have rid iculed Nealy, who waa waa What was he to her I She smiled In a faint, decorous way a she asked herself the question. The twilight had 1 alien. Zack, from the outside, could dimly see the neat, slight figure, the fine, fastidious face. Great Ood I the gulf between them ! She was to him Just men ail tnat was rare, nign, unapproacuauic , a for hint J. all his old poverty. Ignorance, brutality, a van Horn bad called it, were present, ana nung aooui nis neca use a miu- stone. He groaned and turned away.wnen sne struck the keys again and played an old High land air. He stopped; be hsd heard it once be fore. It was the music which bad long ago seemed to say "Come up higher" to him. Zack listened, hesitated, then it seemed ss though new blood hsd rushed It, to nis Doay. Pushing through the bushes, he entered the nouae. If Nealy had wooed Priscilla after the conventional fashion ot Mr. Henry 8hiras and his like, be would have failed. He could not aoeak any alien tongue. But the poor fellow. being desperate, bared his heart to her, and, what was more, bared his life. The Irish hov el, the dray, the oareioot ooy on toe wnarr, the long struggle upward be told the whole story, and, as we know, he could tell a story well even when his life did not hang as now upon the words. Priscilla waa geuue, affec tionate. She had, too, a little cool spark of im agination somewhere; it kindled and burned. This was no ordinary man ; it wa a hero. This wss th old story ot Conhatna and the oeggar maid reversed. The Idea ot her marriage to Dr. Nealy waa not new to her. Bhe had con sidered it frequently in her calm, systematic way. In all probability she must marry an Americas ; Dr. Nealy's present position wss equal to her own ; bis house waa very hand some, and he himself Bhe glanced at him, and blushed in a way that maddened him afresh. Henry Shlras I But Henry could not marry for years, and she waa not, indeed, at all certain that he wished to marry her then. All this while Zack poured forth his honest passion, his humility, hi adoration of some goddess oi a woman. " Does he really mean met" thought Priscil la. "He will always regard me in that way, our social positions being so different." Then It being time tor her to speak, she told him, with a proper shyness and blush, that she preferred him to all other men a a friend, but that if be wished for more he must talk to papa, " though" (this with an arch smile) " oaoa Is so involved in business with the. an cient Oreeks that be will not be likely to op pose own wishes." When he caught that emphasized word Zack took the cool little hands In his and kissed them, and could have cried over them, hla heart was so lull. Two years later Dr. Nealy aat, one warm evening in July of 1832, on the porch of his house. His wife wss beside him. Her chair was placed so that the vine of pale pink roses trailed over her delicate head, with ita neat crown of chestnut hair. It waa Zack' fancy to always place it there. So absurd 1" Priscilla said to herself. " Jurt where the bugs ran drop on to my collar." But to him she said nothing. These whim and fancies, even hi hot Irish affection, were the product, she thought, of his vulgar condi tion in boyhood. She would not waste her wifely authority on trifles. When the vulgar ity showed risen more onensiveiy, it wouiu oe time to interfere. She was very fond of him, but she waa always on the watch for it to show Itself. As for Zack, hi boyhood or hi old age troubled him very little Just now. He had Just eaten a good dinner, and begun a new pipe ; hla eyea were on hi wife ; bis home wss comfortable, his pocket wss full; in tbe vil lage he had all kinds of friend and Jolly com panions io maae nis me secure ana nappy. There, according to rule, we ought to leave him. But there is one short chapter more to give, and It began that day on the porch. " I don't see?' he said.reflecUvely, how Ood could do anything more for me, Priscilla, or bring me any higher up. Unless well, I should have liked to see a little fellow skir mishing around here. I've often thought if I could only see a baby's head on your breast, Priscilla, aa on other women's'' There waa a grave eager longing in his face. Hie wife pursed her thin lips. "Ton often make a strange choice of sauects. Dr. Neslv, This I eapecUlly distasteful to me. . I sup pose Providence orders our lot for the best." " O yes. Providence By George 1 there' Lloyd ! I thought he was in Virginia. I'll go to the gate to meet him." He hurried away, glad that Lloyd had appeared Just then. His bursts of enthusiasm usually received little dashes of cold water such as mis. "I'm rough brute, after all," he thought. " But God kuow I meant wrlL" Lloyd, who waa a physician in Flnnburgh, did not come In. The two men stood at the ste talking a long time so long that Priscll i grew uneasv. " The dew is falling, and he has no hat," she said, and found it io take to him. As she came down the path she saw that both men looked grave and anxious. " Not a word to my wife," muttered Zack; and iney turned smiling io meet ner. "Ton are discussing some serious easel she ssked, putting Zack' cap on his head. " Yea. Mra. Neahr." "Then yoa do not want me. Come In oon." When she was out of hearing Zack said u There Is no doubt a to it being genuine Asiatic cholera!" " None whatever. It has swept through the lower part of the town. You know where I mean I" " By Pomeroy'a mills. Tea, I know every foot of ground and every man In that town. I waa a boy there, you know. Weill" "Every body who had the mean to go, fled week ago; but the poor whites and negroes are there, and they are dying by the hundred every day. No boat atop now. I heard the account from Clapp, who escaped on foot, and boarded our boat at Steubenville. He says their condition is horrible beyond be lief; the dead lying unburled for days, until they are carted off and thrown into a pit to gether; want, starvation among the living." There was a gathering horror, even fear, In Nealy's face. " Why. Lloyd," he said, "those people were Ilk my brothers, once. Want starvation!" "O, I mean the lower classes mill hands, workmen." "SodoL" " The well-to-do people, I told you, had fled. There are no nurse," Clapp said, and but one physician." "But one physician!" Nealy, who never could keep stIU when greatly moved, walked abruptly away. It waa some moments before he came back. Dr. Lloyd waa watching htm anxiously. " What are you going to do!" he said. "Good God! what can I dot Go to them, of course. But one physician 1 and I here, willing my sherry and smoking my pipe 1" " But your wife!" "Priscilla! Yes. I I had not thought of her." "Of course you have not. Ton have not thought at all. It la a noble, generous im pulse, Nealy, but not your duty. Think It over, and you'll see that." "There is a stag at midnight to Pitta burg I" "Yes; but you will not take It. Tut, tutt Do you suppose the town here can spare you, or your friends, or your wife I Go in and talk It over with her. I'll call on my way back, it's not your duty to make yourself a martyr for these wretches. Their house are filthy, and they are drunkard; so down they go. Let them go." A tbe old doctor rode down the bin he looked back and saw tbe stout figure motion less at the gate. It waa late when be returned. Seeing a light in the office he made his way there. Nealy met him at the door. - iou nave oetennined to goi" "Yes." The old man wa greatly agitated. whUe Nealy waa quiet. " iou will never come back, boy. Going from a pure atmosphere Into that polluted " Nonsense ! I win be at borne again in a month' time, please God. There are some Kpers I will leave with you. My my will, methlog might happen, you know. It I all arranged for Priscilla. 8ha will be comforta ble a to money. . I should not think it right to go else." - Money I What I money compared to the loss f - "Of met" Nealy passed hi hand over his face. " Don't unnerve me, Lloyd. It'a right for me to do thla thing, l can't turn my back on these dying people. I've thought it all over." " What are w to do without you, Zack!" Nealv smiled. Tea. I know I'll be missed In old Flnnburgh." Then hla eye fell on bis wife's closed door. He began to gather up hi papers, his lips turning pale, "it'a right for me to go," be said, roughly. " Don't make me think ot what it costs me." There was a pause. "Doe she know!" asked Lloyd. ' No. I can not say good-bye to her. There Is a letter for her with the other papers. Now go, Lloyd. Walt for me at the inn until the stage come." Hs went with Lloyd out on the porch ; then he unclosed the shutter of his chsmoer, and looked in at his sleeping wife. If he opened the door It would waken her. The moonlight shone softly on the fine, somewhat hard face. Zack saw no hardness there. "Dear little tender heart!" he said, the tears running down his rough eheeka. He hsd been too coarse for her. When he came back be would try harder than ever. When be came back!

Th United States signal station at Pike's Peak js tha highest signal sta tion in the world; it is also the highest inhabited portion oi the globe. It was opened in the month of September, 1873. That it was a wise provision of the Government in establishing a signal station at this point is no longer ques tioned, the facts having already demon strated its practicability, and the pres ent success promises that Pike's Peak signal station is yet to stand at the head of all astronomical and meteoro logical stations in the world. This point is wonderfully favored by nature for the study of astronomy and me teorology. The rarity of the atmos phere brings out a remarkable brillian cy and clearness to the stars and all the heavenly bodies. The nights are most always cloudless and cloudy days are the exception. Nine-tenths of the storms are below the Peak. The best and most complete report of the last total eclipse of the sun received at Washington was tne report of rro- fessor Loud, of Colorado College, from observations taken at Pike's Peak. The signal station is now under the charge of Sergeants Choate, Blake and Sweeney. These officers are detailed from the army because of their pecu liar adaptability and special qualifica tions for the accurate execution of the nice duties of taking astronomical and meteorological observations, io ser geant Rufus Choate I am greatly in debted for the particulars embodied in this article. The summit of Pike's Peak contains sixty acres. It is 14,336 feet above the level of the sea. On the highest point of the summit stands the signal sta tion, a rough stone building twenty four by thirty, one story in height. It is divided into four rooms officers1 room, kitchen, store-room and wood- room. And here in this bleak spot, nearly twenty miles from the habita tion of man, though three miles nearer the heavenly regions than most parts of New England, these men live the larger part of the year. The station is three miles from the timber line, where the greater part of vegetation ceases. Short grass tufted with delicate Al pine flowers struggle for an existence against the frigidity of the atmosphere and creep toward the mountain top; but there are hundreds of acres of cold, gray and reddish rocks where not a vestige of verdure exists. L-ute the dwellers of tne arctio re- ons, the Inhabitants of Pike's Peak ave but two seasons summer and winter. Two months of summer Au gust and September and ten long, cold months of winter. The summer sea son passes quickly. The atmosphere is congenial; the many visitors at the peak enhance its social life with Joy, wonderment and mirth. During the summer of 1878 npward of 900 people. in parties of from five to thirty, visited the peak, among them many ladies. They registered from the four quarters of the globe, and they all expressed ad miration and astonishment at the gran deur and sublimity of the wonderful views as seen from the peak. To be hold a sunrise from the peak is an event of a lifetime, and for this purpose vis itors often remain over night at the sta tion to be ready to catch the first glimpse of the sun aa it appears above the horizon, gilding with its bright rays tne mountains, bills, valleys and plains. to the wonder and delight of the amazed oenoiaer. The duties of the officers are various. Seven observations are taken daily; all Btorms are closely watched and each special and distinctive characteristic duly recorded. Sunrise and sunset de mand close attention. Every peculiari ty of the heavenly regions is viewed and record made of the same, and monthly reports of these records are sent to the headquarters at Washing ton. The present year has been un usually prolific in sun-dogs, which are said to prognosticate earthquakes, sub terranean explosions, immense freshets, and troublous times. A Government office at Pike's Peak is no sinecure, for the officer must buffet all storms aad brave all weathers. Occasionally an electric storm visits the peak. There is but little thunder accompanying these storms, but the mountain seems all on fire. Sergeant Choate informs me that when he was out observing one of these storms it appeared as though the whole mountain top was a sheet of electric flame. It came out of every rock and darted around with wonderful audacity. It played around him, as he expressed it, shot down his back and darted out of each boot toe, and so completely filled him with electricity that he could not retain hi foothold, but bounded and rebounded from the rock like a rubber ball; he felt as though a power ful electrio battery was pouring fiery darts all through him, and, deeming discretion the better part of valor." be bounded into the signal station for preservation. Sergeant Choate was at the Springs in December, and on Deo. 21 he left for the peak, wearing Nor wegian snow shoes twelve feet in length. It was a weary task and a dreary trip, ihe nrst night out be slept In the snow on the mountain's side. The second night the mercury fell to twenty degrees below zero. He sought shelter in a deserted cabin. through which the wind whistled tunes anything bat agreeable: here he built a small fire, but avoided sleep, fearing the extreme cold might produce the sleep of death. The third day he reached the station safely. The summer months are also occu pied in preparing for the long siege of winter. During the months of August and September upward of 3,000 pounds of the usual variety of family stores and about twenty-five cords -of fire wood are snugly stowed away. These are all carried to the peak in small quantities on the backs of the poor, de spised Burro, whose head has the ap pearance of being encased in cloth. and whose ears are nearly the length of his legs, and who walks at the pace of a snail, and a very slow snail at that. Lor. Boston Journal. Peculiarities of the Hog Cholera. At the late annual session of the New York State Grange, held at Ithaca, N. Y., Prof. James Law being called upon to (rive a brief account of his investiga tion into the so-called hog cholera, re sponded in tne following very interest ing remarks, for which we are indebted to the uuabanaman: The work which I have undertaken for the Agricultural Department of the Government is to establish facts in re gard to this dreadful disease, which has destroyed such vast numbers of the swine of this country. I have not been seeking for remedies so much as to learn of the character of the malady. The work of seeking a remedy should be conducted in the midst of the contagion and not where only a few specimens are at band for experiment, as in my case. Specimens of the virus of the disease were sent to me with the dis eased organs of swine, and during their examination an intelligent student, who had some acquaintance with the Rus sian rinderpest, remarked the striding similarity in the appearance of the parts affected with the hog cholera and rinderpest. If it is like the rinderpest it is more than folly to seek remedies for affected animals. They had better be killed at once and put out oi tbe way of spreading the disease. We should look rather to means for preventing: the spread of the contagion. Prevention is better than cure. In order to know how to prevent the dis ease we must know all about it. We want to understand in what ways the aisease may dc coniracwa, now it can spread. I have made a number of ex periments upon this point. In the first place I have permitted healthy swine to eat the virus, but nave not succeeded in conveying the poison in this way. have inoculated healthy swine with small particles of the virus, and have in this way been successful in impart ing the disease. The virus has been sent me from New Jersey, North Caro lina, and other points on quills, in some cases the virus was comparative ly fresh; in others it was several days old and completely dried, hut there seemed to be no perceptible difference in its efficiency for conveying the dis ease. It is certainly important for us to know that a very minute particle of the virus, after being transported thous ands of miles, and kept until it is dry and scarcely perceptible, is suil capa ble oi conveying tne contagion, it sug gests many other ways in which the poison may be spread, xt may re car ried bv the wind, on scraps of paper, or even on thistle downs. It may have adhered to the boots or clothing of at tendants, or to the feet or bair of dogs. The many hundred ways of conveying the disease will readily suggest tnem selves as points in its alarming char acter. I have inoculated the virus from fresh intestines, and, as I have said, when it was old and dried, but with unvarvincr success. In one case failed to produce disease 'when the virus was taken from diseased intestines sent to me from New Jersey, but they were partly putrid, which suggests that putrefaction may destroy the germs of . i i . : u tuts uiseaee. uiuci caci iuidulo niu in made noon this point. 1 have been testing the virulence of the blood of diseased animals, and have inoculated it frequently, almost invariably producinsr the disease. have been able to find in the tainted blood living particles, but they are very small, requiring a glass of one thousand magnifying power to discover them. A test was made to determine the ef fect of freezing on the virus. After it had been firmly frozen for more than a day it seemed to have lost none of its effectiveness for conveying the disease. Another experiment was made to de termine the contagious character of the disease. A healthy animal was placed in a pen between two sick ones. Dif ferent persons attended the sick and well animals, and every precaution was taken not to assist in the convey ing of the disease from the sick pigs to the well ones. In inspecting the pens I always visited the ones where the healthy pigs were first. After twenty four days the pig was attacked with the disease. In cases where healthy pigs were inoculated, thirteen days was the longest time that intervened be tween inoculation and the development of the disease. In another experiment I put a sound pig in a pen tnat had been vacated thirteen days before by a diseased an imal. The pig contracted the disease and died within fifteen days of the time it was put in the infected pen. In one experiment I put a well pig in the pen with a sick one. It went through a mild form of the disease and is now re covering. I am satisfied that the mal ady is not readily imparted by conva lescent animals. 1 have also made experiments to as certain whether this disease could be imparted to other animals than the nig. I inoculated a rabbit with the blood of a sick pig, producing the disease in the rabbit, and with the blood of the in fected rabbit I conveyed the disease to a healthy pig. With tbe same blood that I used to inoculate a rabbit I im parted the disease to a lamb, and from that I am now endeavoring to convey it to pigs again. The object of these latter experiments is to find what an imals can contract the disease and convey it from place to place. I am still conducting various experiments bearing upon this disease, and in due time a fuller statement of the work will be given to the public. Bishop Clark says the best capital for a young man about " starting in life," is a clear head, an honest heart and an energetic wilL" When a young man starts in life he is not a day old, and in a majority of cases he has a clear head not a hair on it and he also has an honest heart; but when he becomes a young man. Bishop, he wants an en tirely different capital especially if he is addicted to billiards and wants to take his girl to the opera.

This is a nice relish for any kind of meat. You must understand there is a right and a wrong way to do it Anyone who has ever Been the process of evaporating going on at salt works knows that the salt falls to the bottom. Just so it is in the pan where your salt fish lies soaking, and as it lies skin down, the salt will fall to the skin, and there remain; when, if placed with the flesh side down, the salt falls to the bottom of the pan, and the fish comes out properly freshened.

To make the filling, use one sauare of chocolate, cup of suerar. yelks of two eggs, third of a cup of boiling milk; mix the scraped chocolate and sugar together, and then add, slowly. the milk and eggs, simmering about ten minutes.

As soon as dry, give the article another coat of oil; let it dry and it will be waterproof; but, after being worn-awhile, will need another coat of oil. The above is the method pursued by the fishermen on the banks of Newfoundland. The gar ments should be made double thick ness and must not be rolled or packed by themselves, as they are liable to gen erate spontaneous combustion. ... To Make the Celebrated English Pork Pies. Take fourteen pounds of nicely-sifted flour; make a hole in mid dle of Dour; take four and a half pounds of lard, one quart of water; put over the fire; let them scald, but not boil; stir into the flour until all is nicely mixed without lumps or dr. nour. When cool enough to be worked with the hands take a piece of dough, say about three-quarters of a pound, roll into a smooth ball; insert the thumb into the ball, work it around with the thumb and fingers until yoa can get in the tips of the fingers; then work it or smooth it to the back of the hand until it is a mold, round or oval about six inches on the bottom, and pour on top. Be careful to have the crust all of one thickness; have ready nice tender pork, cut in small dice-like pieces, season with salt and pepper, as for sausage, fill the crust mold within one inch from the top, put on upper crust-cut smooth ly around, bake in a moderate oven one hour, or until the meat will be cooked thoroughly; to be eaten cold. Nothiko is easier than to spoil the appetite, to make the animal fretful and restless, and to put a stop to all improvement, by the mere irregularity of feeding. A boast fed to-day at six o'clock, to-morrow at seven, and the next day at eight, will fret each suc cessive day from the time of his former feed to that of the present day's. Soon he falls into a restless habit, as he never knows when his ration is to be ex pected, and anxiety destroys thrift. Nor is it the mental turmoil alone that forbids improvement; the stomach fails to adapt itself to the uncertain supply, and a quantity of partially-digested food is thrown upon the bowels for the support of an economy whose wants have been materially increased. The feeding of stock should never be made subsidiary to other work a thing to be attended to at any time when other du ties have been disposed of. Inanimate objects can better afford to wait than can the living and often acutely sensi tive live stock, and he who fails to re alize this will ever fail in securing a full return from this species of prop erty. Wouldn't Take the Responsibility. I was on board a Sound steamboat in a snow-storm one night before Thanks giving. The President of the company, the Treasurer and two directors were on board. All at once there was a rattling of the chains, and it was evi dent the anchor was down. The officials rushed up to the Captain's office and exclaimed: ' What does this mean. Captain Williams?" It means that I have anchored the boat." ' ' But to morrow is Thanksgiving; we' must get home anvhow. The old Commonwealth has weathered worse galea than this." The Captain sat down at the table and wrote a positive order from the Presi dent, Treasurer and directors to raise the anchor and proceed against his own judgment. " Sign that order, gentle men, and I will proceed." Of course not one of them would sign it. That's the way it is," said Williams; " not a man of you would take the responsibil ity. You want me to violate my own judgment, and if anything happened you will turn on me and say: You are a sailor and we are not.' " And the old boat did not budge until morning. N. T. Cor.
