Finally they turned away despair and were about to leave the when they chanced to meet a countryman with a load of cider. As last resort they entered it en ntac, in this dinguise succeeded.

BY MARY A. P. HUMPHREY. It was not an attractive school room. The bare walls were guiltless of whitewash, and the knife-marks on desks and benches like those strantre exhumed bird tracks of the Old Red Sandstone showed where the firt rude outlines had been traced of many a life bidden, long ago, under tne aeons of years. Across the lower half of everv win dow a square of faded green baize had oeeu tacked closel v to tne casement, Iet some pair of child-eyes, heavy witn 1 e vie wine tne endless lines mar shaled in tedious uniformity on book or slate, should rest awhile upon the Pleased contrast or green helus and gurgling waters. Miss Waring's eyes darkened with quiet indignation. As it a school room was a prison? As if one lesson from springing grass, and spreading tree rescuing up to tne lile-irivinir sunshine one element of modest beauty in meadow lily and wild rose bud, of hapiiv trust in tender bird. provident squirrel, or care-free butter fly, could be spared from the place where young minds should learn how to expand and grow, young hearts to aspire and yet be humble, young lives to assume tne divinely appointed relation or laitn ana worK. liut tne isononi-room, like many other things of sufficiently unpromis ing exterior, was rich in possibilities. Miss Waring made a rapid inventory of such ineligible wealth, and nodded to herself from her little chair of state upon the platform. The offending baise, its faded ugli ness veiled by short curtains of cheap, white muslin, might be made to do good service higher up the windows, in softening the glare of the mid-day sunshine. The broad window niches gave ample room for pots of ivy, wan dering Jew, and Madeira vine, need ing only time and care to improvise festoons and draperies more graceful than the most elaborate designs of the old tapetries. Then, in her portfolio for the little school mistress thought with her eve and hand she remembered some il luminated texts, bright aa the pages of an old missal ; sketches, too, in peucil and colors, simple bits, which the children could get at the heart of waiting only to be framed with the cones and willow-withes they would be only too glad to gather for her on the fitst half-holiday. Their own hands should help to weaveand bind; they should have a voice in the hang ing and general arrangemeut; for this home-making, she thought, like the rest of the world's work, must be co-operative, if it were really to be worta anytbmg. The sound of footsteps and voices broke in upon her morning dream and the pleasant vision of the reno vated room faded into the light of the day 9 duties. The scholars came by twos and threes, gathering in and about the balf-onen door, with aby, curious glances at the new teacher. Children are the most unerring physiognomists, since do others are so helplessly dependent upon the vary ing moods, which leave unfailing imprint on the face. A few bolder ventured inside, iu advance of her pleasant invitation to all. Two or three offered little bunches of wild flowers, dewy and sweet, making her cheek nusa with pleasure. .ver since she could remember, flowers had been her friends; she knew them by heart, and had a fancy more clearly defined than sue would nave been quite wil ling to confess, that they, in turn, understood tier, when human svm pathy failed. The Germans call their fragrance the "speech of flowers." Miss Waring placed her own eloquent treasures lu a cracKed tumbler, wnicu little girl found for her in the aute room, and more than once, amid the cares aud anxieties of that "first da'," their freshness and beauty entered into her heart, and kept it strong. "You'll be apt to have some trouble with Hal inorn, the deacon s boy," widow Moss, her hostess, had said to her that morning, over the breakfast " He is a bad boy. then ?" "Yes; cares for nothing and nobody. His father can't keep him in school half tne time. A smart lad, too, and quick with his books, when he chooses. How well I remember the Sunday his mother first led him into meeting. He was scarcely more than baby, and so bright and pretty the people turned in tueir seats 10 get a second look at his laughing face. Little she thought, poor woman, of how he would be growing up I" " Mrs. Thorn is not living, I think bear a ?" said MUs Waring. "Oh no! She died let me think will be ten years come Christmas. must be fourteen how the years The deacon never married again," went on the good woman, fairly launched upon the tide of gossip. "Mary she's the oldest keeps house. Susan married a Falconer her boy will be in your ABC class. Steve helps bis father on the farm ; he's the deacon right over, a real chip of the block. Hal is the youugest." Would it have been the same with if his mother had lived do you think?" " Perhaps not. She was a quiet woman, was Mrs Thorn, but it always seemed to me as if her ' Don't ' went farther with the children than a thrashing from their father. The deacon holds a stiff rein. Why ! Hal into a tussle with butcher Barton's one day, aud between them, a atone crashed through Reuben Brown's plate glass. Hal declared he didn't throw the stone, Pete's two little brother's swore saw him. The deacon said that Hal would fight he wouldn't help out of trouble, and he let him go " Hal is quick as gunpowder, and isn't afraid of anybody when his temper's up. He was beach-nulting in the wood-lot, the day Squire Marlow'e cattle broke iuto bis twenty wheat-field. They did a round -hundred dollars' damage. I'd been to the deacon's of an errand, and just coming down the front walk, wheu the squire came tearing accusing Hal of letting dowu fence. 1 wish yon could have that boy. Miss Waring ! : He up, pale as death, and his eyes two 1 ires, I didn't let down your fence, Squire Marlow," says he, right before father and Steve, "but I wouldn't cared n I Dad, and the best wlau can make you is that your cattle have i n five times the worth of Biddy Larry's cow that you took rent last winter, and little Patsy dying! " ""If you'll believe it. Miss Waring, squire turued as red as a cock 'a comb, aud rode off without another word. I believe the deacon wasn't sorry himself, but be thrashed all the same, to take the imperti nence out of him, he said." "But his sister has she no Influ ence over him?" Well, Mary has all she can do. I guess the most she asks of Hal to keep out of her way. You've uo Miss Waring, of the amount of a farm of that size brings into bouse. Let me fill your cup. No. What! goiug to school so early? Weil, a pleasant day to you." So it had happened that Miss War ing looked with something more than interest along the liue of larger who took their places ou the row of benches at the opening the school. SLe saw the various pea of boyish faces, already-to familiar to her, some bright and earnest, others dull and sullen, still others well meaning, but marked, as hv no strong individuality not which at all embodied her ideal ofHalThom. One by one the names a-'pirine to by not is of bov not of his But its His hour pale, that him, of and tne le ngs globe last quite come that me I given took pass chill drew and knife, the and last, upon home, were enrolled he was not there. But half an hour later the door suddenly opened with a creak of decision, and a tall boy walked with swinging.defiant steps along the narrow aisle, casting a Keen giance at tne teacner as ne went. She nodded pleasantly, her rapid, practiced eye tatting Dim tn. from the heavy boots, so splashed with wet sand as to suggest the cause or bis tardiness to have been a morn ing visit to the creek, to the brown. shapely throat revealed by the turn down collar of his coarse gray jacket, the proud head covered with crisp, auburn curls, the dark eyes full of dangorous fire, the reckless untrustful expression, over-waiting like the 'characters of a palimsest, the first noble plan of his young face. No wonder, she thought, that the people Dad "turned In their seats" when the dove eyed mother had brought in her youngest eaglet. She could fancy him in his glorious baby hood, radiant, unsullied heaven bis fatherland, earth his inheritance. The teacher paused until the room was quiet again, then she resumed what she bad been saying. As 1 was telling you. children. rules are troublesome, and only good for people who do not wish to keep tbem. It is so much nicer to do the things we ought because we like to. snail give you just one rule. " Do right!" The very smallest one of vou will understand that. And I shall trust you, every one." feue looked up ar.d caught Hal's eyes fixed on her with au intensity that made her start. Oddiy enough. something fa-back in her childhood seemed to confront her in hi-t face. She groped for a moment in the labyrinth of her memory, and caught the clue. Her father was a Garrisooian aboli tionist, his house was a station on the underground railway. One night a poor bondman came, bard pressed by neomcera. There was lust time to hide him in the gra'nary, under a heap of empty bags, in a corner full of dust and cobwebs. His pursuers. warrant in band came in hot haste. searching the house from garret to cellar, ranging barns and out-houses, thrusting pitch forKs ruthlessly into fragrant hay mows, groping at last into that very heap of sacking, whose heart was one unit of agony ir the unsolved problem of the world's sor row. At the instant when all hope had fled they turned away, baffled ; and, as the ring of the horses' hoofs died upon the distant highway, the fugitive came forth. The little girl, clinging to her father's coat there were no secrets in that househeld had kept, tf rough all her years, the memory of that sable countenance. " One chance more," It said, " for life, liberty, home! Oue chance more!" " Oue chance more," said the boy'B face, at once so young, and so sadly old, "for faith, sympathy, love! One chance more!" Days passed. Miss Waring'86ingle rule was working. The children were not perfect aggravatiugly human sometimes yet the best in each nature seemed lifting itself like a plant, to the sunshine, checked by sterile soil, turned aside by stones, hair choked rank weeds, yet struggling and still. She worked and waited. Hal Thorn developed powers of at tention and application which aston ished her. His conduct had been thus far irreproachable, but he seemed shield liimselt behind an impene trable carrier. She felt lierseif on trial, with judgment reserved. At last, it was one noon, a sound or angry voices smote her ear. She stepped to the door. The boys were gathered in a crowd, and the first glance showed her Hal Thorn, bis eyes blazing and his face pale with passion. laKemat DacK, liiii j en Kins, or ! I'll His clenched fist was raised high, the veins iu his bold forehead knotted, bis white teeih set. The boys parted suddenly, but be did see. A band touched bis shoulder. He turned fiercely, wavered for an instant, then a steady, defiant gleam flashed to meet the teacher's sad, firm eyes, " i nert 'a no ue. ihe chance lost !" they seemed to say. " Harold, he is smaller than you !" That was all she raid, no sharpness personal reproof, not one word about the wickedness of fighting, the guilt of anger aud profanity. A swnt nusn a leu nis cneeK nis hand dropped to his side. For a mo ment all was still in the playground. Miss Waring held out her hand. The caught it impulsively, then as suddenly letting it fall, he turned, vaulted over the high fence, and run ning swiftly across the meadow to ward the cieek, disappeared behind a clump of willows. P10 Human eye saw Mm there. lying upon the grass, his face in his hands, his young breast swept with stormy sobs. If he prayed he did kuow it. 1 doubt if he thought God at all.

Hal came back at a little past the for afternoon session, silent and but Miss Waring knew instinc tively that it was not sulleuness which prevented a response to her smile of welcome. It was well, she thought, his heart was too sore for rapid healing. Meanwhile she must give as best she could, the safe tonic helpful service. So she asked him to stay after school help her to carve a pair of brack ets with which she meant to surprise children, each one to noiu a aim vase, since the daily floral ofler- were sadly crowded by the and books upon her little desk. "l am so awKwaru wuu a jack knife, Hal, "she said, laughingly, "and night I cut my finger, aud was discouraged. Then who should in but Grandpa Spinney, with wonderful cane-head of his, and I asked nim who cut it, be told quite proudly that it was you. So kuew immediately where to go for help." The boy blushed, half ashamed of having been detected in the little kindness common opinion having hiiu over to unalloyed evil, he unconsciously shared with the lest of humanity the tendeucy lo preserve a cousistent reputation. However, he consented eagerly to her request. She care to let few silent moments in which the memory of the re cent outbreak might settle down in constraint between them, and him ou to speak of hiugs he understood habits of bird or beast, secrets of wood and water course, gained, as she rightly conjectured, through many a day of truantship, atoned for, night by night with pitiless stripes. She praised again bis skill with the and he told her of old Anton, Swiss wood-carver, who bad once sojourned in the village, with his quaint costume and broken speech. his thrilling stories of life among mountains and glaciers.

Some of the old Huguenot blood burned in the veins of this girl; her slender limbs were mouldered of the pure stuff out of which martyrs were uwue. An oia nymn or her child hood sprang to her lips; wild and sweet, quaint melody rang out upon tuts air; " The Lord is coming, is coming. In a chariot of fire !

Harrison, Commissioner of Jtauroaas ana lrtfrrapns, Lotumous, unto : Dear Sir: I am in recel nt of yours of the 27th ult.. including copies of oenate resolution o. Zl, wltn blank scneauies. In regard to the resolutions, I will take tnem in tneir order, RESOLUTION 1. " Iiesoh-cd. That the Commissioner of Railroads and Telegraphs be re quested to inform the Senate, at as early a day as practicable, whether there is any uniform rule in this State among railroad companies, by which freights are classified, aud if not, to stare what, in bis judgment, would be the most judicious system for the classification of freights which can oe adopted." I here is no uniform system ofeIasi- fication. There ia a similarity of classification among all roffj.-i, such as first, second, third, fourth and firth classes, and sometimes additional classification by letters A, li, C, Ac, and also carload rates, as you will see by examining the classification books the different companies. But all roads do not place the same articles the same class. These classes are varied by circumstances ; sometimes by the amount shipped, aud the regu larity of shipment. For example, a road located in a mineral district, hauling large Quantities of coal and iron, etc., would and could well afford put these articles in the lowest class or in ihe carload rates; while on road not reaching a mineral district a mineral market and only carry ing occasionally a single car load or a part of a car load of these products a different classification would be adopt ed. Take the article of oil and its products largely produced in this sec tion of country, and affording an immense traffic to a few roads. Cars built expressly for the transporta tion of this commodity ia its crude state, and great care is necessary to safe handling, whether in its crude form or in its various stages of refine ment. Upon the line of roads where this article is not found, and where little of it is transported, the very highest classification or rate might charged, and properly bo, by reason of the great hazard involved its handling. Here it Is rated as fourth class or "special car load rates." Again, the season of the year has much to do with classification. Dur iug the season of water navigation a sharp competition naturally arises between the railroads and the vessels upon lakes, rivers and canals. Hav ing provided an equipment sufficient the business and exigencies of winter, the railroads cannot afford to this equipment lie idle during the summer, and they must do their transportation at very low rates, or do it at all. So many circumstances enter into matter of classification of articles, that no uniform rule could be justly established which should apply to all roads in the State. Regularity of shipment, amount of shipment, price the commodity, length of haul, and even grade aud curvature, affect rates, aud consequently the classi fication. A road of heavy grades and sharp curves can not baudle its traffic cheaply as a straight road with lighter grades. To illustrate the in fluence of length of haul upon rates, take any road in Ohio, say 100 miles long. An order is received for ten for the 100 miles, and one for ten for ten miles between way sta tions. TraiuBmustbe made up and with reference to the whole line, uuless sufficient business is offered steadily employ a train on the ten mile haul, which is rarely if ever the case. The ten cars for 100 miles would on the through train, and the others upon a local train. Experience proves thai at the way stations fre quent delays, inconveniences, and losses are entailed upon companies through failure to load aud unload promptly, while at terminal points facilities ate such that no loss of to the regular movement of trains is experienced. The cars for of to "v up are of so per all and ihe the uot of ing was one in was We ....... .. . k n v. i upon tK Jde TrackTrnd Tn any'event not be used agaih until the return th through or wv train and if unloaded promptly may. aud do, remain idle for several days. chances are that the ten cars consigned 100 miles will be ready for loading and use again for the same time, il not sooner, than those con signed the ten miles. ludeed, experi ence shows that those of the long are usualy returned the more promptly. In these two cases the income accruing to the railroad com pany would be as follows : cars, 20,000 lbs each , at 2 cents per ton per mile for 100 miles ?-00 cars, 20,000 lbs each, at 8 ceuU per tou per uiile fur 10 miles.. .......... SO giving an excess on the haul of 120, oue fourth the rate per ton per of the short haul, and the proba bility is that the cars goiug the 100 will be loaded both ways, while ten-mile cars will be returned empty. iu Wa that after our that are milk Cows RESOLUTION THIRD. Resolved, That the Commissioner requested to obtain, by circular or wife, as tar as possiDie, iroui railroad company in the State, through rates for each class ol freight, aud its rates of freight for each from its principal terminus to station upon its line, and com municate the same to the benate."

The through busi ness was, and is, a mere incident to toe local business ; and but for com parisons drawn between the local and through rates, no one would complain of the local rates. They are not ex cessive. They are greatly below the rates allowed by law in many other oukcs. Autxw living one tne noes are content to pay them when no unreasonable preferences are given, and they are a great contrast to the rates paid before the road ware built. But in the progress of our growth and improvement, many of these roads have been extended, or have become links in the chain reaching to import ant commercial centres, and now con stitute competing lines. The road is built and equipped with a view to the local business: but it has the ma chinery and rolling stock for doing a greater traffic, and the same superin tendence aim working force can, with very little expense, do twice or three times the business. The road, there- lore, becomes a com neti tor for through business between common points, and sometimes at rates consideiably below the rates paid between way stations. ,11. : - i . . . n une tne roaa would never Dave been built to do the through business alone at the through rates, yet being built and equipped, it finds a legiti mate profit in employing its excess capacity over the demands of its local business in accepting tho cur rent rates for through business, all of wnicu mignt oe wholly lost, if not taken at the eompetiting rates. So long as the local shipper is fairly and promptly served, he has no cause for complaint; his freight charges are the sajie, and often less, than if the road were built no further than to Disown door.

The same principles aoolv to rail road transportation as to other busi-J --t vi mucr uiuues oi transport tion. Every attempt to regulate it by legislation, beyond fixiug a maximum local rate, will, in my opinion, prove impracticable. This kiud of legisla tion has already discouraged and re- taraea ihe buiidmg of new roads withjn the State, and has thus opened new lines of traffic outside of our territory, to the serious injury of cer tain roads inside our territory. If this course is persisted in, it will greatly impair the efficiency and prof its of many other roads, and drive from our State much of the wealth business arising from traffic pass ing through it. Again, there are coal mines upon many of our roads, worked for certain city markets. Some of these markets luO miles or more, and some less than 100 miles from those cities. Some these mines have facilities, and are accessible to the railroads that the difference in the expense of delivery upon the cars is one or two cent per bushel. Now, by making the rate mile the same, or pro rata from coal mine stations, tne more dis tant miner would be compelled to abandon the business, and the miners, railroad companies, and consumers would all be more or less injured. The policy of railroad companies is to foster all these coal mines, by charg ing reduced rates to the more distant inaccessible. The Legislature proposes to interfere and to forbid such adjustment of special eon tract rates. If the people understood effect of such legislation, and that law would be enforced, would our legislative halls be flooded with remonstrances ? It can not be that the members generally under stand the effect of this proposed legis lation, or they would not be in favor it. is all a are Very respectfully, your friend and obedient servant, in in and GEORGE B.

We know we have often experienced a vast increase in the number of eggs brought into the bouse the removal of a too officious in dividual from our employ. Besides, cows have sometimes improved in produce by the same means, but we generally attribute it to a cleaner milking by fresh and more industri ous hands. It is, however, well known cows are peculiarly sensitive to sights and sounds during the time the milked. Unless they are at per fect ease, they will not give their freely. They should be daily milked under the same conditions. that are fed at milking time require their usual meal, or they be come restless and dissatisfied, and put to their bounty. Many of them only allow some special favorite milk tbem. In those parts ofthe country where women are solely em ployed to milk, we frequently find one two tuneful lassies singing at their and many cows beccmeso pleas ed with the rustic harmony as to show evident signs of their approval of the sweet voice, by giving milk only being sung to.

The entire population marched in procession on the opening day, and during the re mainder of tho week no person in. peared ou the street onmaaked. In every house jollity and good cheer prevailed, and Russian and Siwash, American and Teuton, Indnlged in masked balls each evening. The week kept as a carnival week each year by the Russians, and they indulge in amusement to their heart's content. Notwithstanding the excitement, there were no quarrels or disorderly conduct apparent. The fur trade at San Francisco has bas largely increased since the acqui sition of Alaska to the United States. Last year the importation of raw fur was of the value of more than $2,000, 000. Previous to the purchase of Alaska the trade in furs was insifini ficant, all that were obtained in the territory being sent from Sitka, by Siberia, to Europe. Now the trade has been diverted to San Francisco, with much of that from Siberia. From that port the markets of the world are more accessible. Tne trade Is becom ing quite valuable, and will become more bo yearly, for some years.
