The breeze blew up from tbe garden the spicy fragrance or carnations. The birds in Uie-orcltanl were singing their sweetest melodies.'"' The trees upon the avenue cast long shadows. It was a beautiful summer evening. A group of young people were upon the piazza of Gerald. Vandyke's sum mer residence. They were all bis guests. (ierahl always had a large number of peojile with aim in the summer. r " It- takes Kob - Meredith an unac countably long period ot time to go to farm house half a mile away and re turn," said some one. "Indeed it does," returned. a very handsome yonnggentleman.Pranfc Tin cent by name: "out then there is a young lady in -the case. I'll venture that Miss Thorn ton and he, at this mo ment, are walking very slowly along the road, carrying on a desperate flir tation, and they are perfectly regard' less of the flight of time, or of the fact that half a dozen of us are waiting in suspense. r Ht"i:? " And old Tenipus will not cease to fly even when a game of croquet is be ing delayed," said tbe first speakei uXo," retHrned Frank. Youder they come, however. Xow for the lawn." Five minutes later a .lively game of croquet was iu progress, in which Miss Fannie Thorn tou and Mr. Robert Mere dith were taking an active part. Per haps it will be best to briefly describe these two people. Miss Thornton was Farmer Thornton's daughter. A ram bling but pleasant old house, situated half a mile away from Gerald Vandyke's stylish residence, was.her home. She was a tall girl with quite a pretty face. Her form was slender and graceful. She was a lady in manners, and quite pop ular with Vandyke's guests. Yes, very popular, though it was well known that she had taught several terms in "dis trict schools." . I do not think that any objections to playing croquet witli her on that account, and I am sure that tbe young gentleman had not.- w -'" Mr. Robert Meredith was a genial young fellow of twenty-five or there about a particular friend of the Van dykes'. He was wealthy and handsome, having a pleasant fac, ami frank gray eyes. When It Is added -tnat ne was a young man 'of good principles, good sense and good nature, It is not neces sary to say more. ',. " Eob, we are going to have a fresh arrival of guests to-morrow," said Frank Vincent during the game of cro quet. . ". ' " Are we?" said Robert. iIant ay that I shall either mourn or "rejoicer 1 am enjoying myself hugely with those that are here, but still I can't say that wish anybody the bad luck to be kept away from Vandyke's summer quarters, who has a chance to ome, ,not even if we .should '-become uncomfortably crowded. In that latter case I'd be perfectly resigned to" i i f j Well, what?'' asked Frank, as Roh- paused. , , t x "To have you sleep' in' the observa tory," Rob answered, coolly. " "Yes, indeed!" said Frank. "How ever, I think you will rejoice a little at one arrival to-morrow."' l - - "Who is it?" . "Miss Ellie Warburton.T Are yon glad?" .... " Oh, I'm not very sorry. Miss War- burton is decidedly a pleasant young lady." . "To be sure," Frank returned. "And frequently wonder it Mr. Robert Meredith has not been near to propos ing to her, occasionally. " Humph !" Rob muttered. " That yonng . gentleman, hovered about her a great deal last winter," Frank continued. "However,. for aught know, it may have been only a flirta-, tiou. Still the signs were rather favor able, I thought, at times, for something more serious." . -- i "Mr. Meredith, play," cried Fannie. Thornton, who was Robert's partner. Mr. Meredith played. II mado a lucky strike, and continued to piny for some time. He became separated from Frank Vincent, and no more was said upon the subject about which they had been talking. : s ''"' After the game was ended, Rob More- dlth escorted Miss Thornton back to her home. The next day came tbe fie$h arrival of guests, among whom was Miss Ellie Warburton. I cannot say that Miss Warburton was any hand somer, or any more of a lady in man ners than Fannie Thornton both were certainly lovely girls but then, in the eyes of a great many people she pos sessed one advantage. To be brief, she had a snug fortune of her own, that reached up toward a hundred thousand dollars. All ed ' and in had and was ed He of He so, ' am' me, he , of in en You ' a her, hi her ' and T must tell the truth about Robert Meredith and Iter. He liad been no great way from proposing the previous winter, but vrell, perhaps fate had de creed otherwise. At anr rate, though he had told himself that lie was very near to loving her, at least he had not proposed. ' ' - '. " ' And he? She would, in nil proba bility, have said yes. ' And she was not in any more than good time in coming out to Gerald Vandyke's as a guest, if sue wished to keep her hold on Bob.' Miss Fannie Thornton, farmer's daughter, and dis trict school nilsstresa, was" obtaining a sway over his heart that might, in time, surpass that which she held especially if it was undisputed. : It Juay not he true that absence conquers love, but it is pretty sure that a lovely liyal present has an advantage over one. absent, both stand equally high iu a man's re gard. I do not thiuk tbatgencrous Rob Meredith would have thought of pu ting money in the balance ou either side. So you perceive, do' row, not, that if r.nie n arourton had any desire In her heart, unacknowledged if yon please, to wfn Rob Meredith, it was fully time that she should be at Gerald Vandyke's ? Some days slipped away. Vandyke's guests enjoyed themselves hugely. Rob Meredith divided his attentions about equally between Miss Tboruton and Miss Warburton. At this time he had no strong perference foreitherone. If he had been forced- to make instant choice between them, he would have been in a quandary. I do not think that there is anything very strange about this. A younir man with ever so strong capabilities for loving, may come to a time when it is very hard to decide between two lovely girls. - And for a long time his heart may be in a divided state, as it were. I am willing to grant that at tUis time he does not cherish for either any very deep or fer vent love.' Further, the period will come when circumstances or fate or something else will point out the one which he is to love with all his heart, and she will become the "one woman of the world" for him. As a matter of course the two younir ladies met and were introduced. They did not become intimate, but still they were quite cordial toward each other. One day, more than a week after Miss Warburton 's arrival, a merry party was upon the lawn. You may . be sure a game of croquet was ou hand. Ellie Warburton and Fannie Thorntou were both present ' Frank Vincent Iiad es corted Fannie from her home to Van dyke's this time. . ( " Where, is Rob Meredith ?" some per had asked when preparations were being made for the game. . .. :. : Miss Warburton chanced to hear the question. ' "He has gone out riding on Mr. Vandyke's "Saltan," she said care lessly.- '' . ' ' ne wonld better beware of that horse he Is dangerous." " So I told him, buthe only laughed." And Miss Warburton laughed too, as though she liad done her duty and might be merry about it. The game -progressed. It was half done, w hen there was heard coming down the road the fierce clatter of hoofs. turned in the direction of the sound beheld Vandyke's, "Sultan" tearing along at a mad gallop, with Bob Mere dith on his back. The horse was run ning away. In a moment he had pass the entrance of the lawn, and was clattering farther away down the straight, hard road. ; :. ...... r' Fannie Thornton gave a wild scream tell to the earth, fainting, her face perfectly colorless. . . .. " Ob, he wiU be killed ! He will be killed !" shrieked some of tlte girls. " 1 think pot," cried Ellie Warbur ton. "I noticed that he held the reins his hands, and the road is level and straight." , . i .. ; , v.: : And her words were verified. . Haifa mile down the road Rob cheeked Sultan himself, ne turned and rode back to Vandyke's. . Meantime Frank Vincent lifted Fannie Thornton in his arms carried her to the honse. His face pale as Fannie's. Poor Frank ! his paleness was caused by hers. , She soon revived, and was shortly able to go home , : :.-,' r:ti i After dinner Rob Meredith was seat on the piazza of Vandyke's residence. was alone. 1 The sun was low iu the west, and the piazza was shaded and pleasant. Presently some one came out the house and stood close by him. had to half turn to see her. He did and beheld Miss Warburton. " I am glad you were not injured, Mr. Meredith," she said quietly. "Are yon : he returned coldly enough. "Yes." " I suppose yon are, after a fashion," broke out more warmly than the occasion, seemed to demaud. . "Still, I i told, that, you didn't even change color when Sultan galloped past with while " r : ne paused, rather ashamed of him self. She knew very well how he would have completed that sentence if had completed it at all. " I should have supposed that a heart friendship would have drawn a little color from your cheek," Bob went on, getting angry lieeause she was silent. "Yes, even that much, if no more. But lam not to review the past year and be lieve that much even." "Why, Mr. Meredith," Ellie said laughingly, "I did not think yon were any great danger. I have hail a doz such runaway adventures as yours. had a clear road before you." Was she making sport of him? nc paled, and for a moment was nearer to declaration than he had ever lx-cn be fore. He felt an angry desire ,'o test, to see if there was aught of regard her heart for hiui. But at that in stant Gerald Vandyke himself came up from the lawn. He sat down and com menced talking about Suluiu. . , Miss Warburton felt that she might have said something else to Rob Mere dith ; Unit she had better control over herself than some people; that after nil heart hud beaten tiimiiltuonsly when Sultan was running away, thongh neither her words, nor face, nor manner shown it. But she had said nothing of the kind, was very glad of it. : And when Rob Meredith had grown calmer, lie realized that he had been very foolish. Perhaps that realization made a breach between "him and Miss Warburton. When a man feels that he has made a fool of himself before a woman, it may a he all on to a she of of a cause him to fight a little shy of her for a time at least. The nest time that Fannie Thornton came over to Vandyke's, she was not particularly embarrassed. A woman can faint when she sees a wild horse running away with a friend, without that meaning anything particular, caul she? Perhaps you think that action ought to have determined Rob Mere dith's course. It didn't. Or, at any rate, no immediate consequence fol lowed. ' One evening Frank Vincent made confession to Robert Meredith. " I love Fannie Thornton, and I have told her so," getting through with it all quickly " Shall I congratulate you?" Eob asked, quite calmly. ao;" Frank returned, "she re jected me. But I still have a slight hope, for she did not say that she did not love me. Robert expressed his sorrow. Per haps it was only sorrow for his friend'; pain, and not that he had been rejected. Thnt ma- sound paradoxical but it isn'l I assure you. .At last Robert Meredith concluded that he would try to force a denouce- ment. Probably neither Miss Thorn ton nor Miss Warburton. would answer yes to his asking. Still there would be nothing wrong iu attempting to discov er whether either loved him truly. If his experiment did no good, It could do no harm. And his idea was certainly not an entirely new one. Rob went to Gerald Vandyke and en listed him in Ids cause. That gentle man was perfectly ' willing to do all in his power for Rob. . But he said . "Dash it, man! what's your object?' And Rob told him. ,- - . Soon it was noised about among the guests that Mr, Robert Meredith had lost his fortune, through some rascality of bis business agent. Vandyke knew tall about it.. ,Mr. Meredith had given him the facts in the case. Of course everybody believed the story. Rob seemed to be taking his misfortunes calmly enough And when Fannie Thornton heard all this she grew very pale. A day later, however, Frank Vincent said to Rob " Congratulate me, for Fannie made me happy. She has recalled her decis ion, aud has promised to be mine. I was not in despair at all, for she timer said that she did not love me." Are lovers ever blind ? Rodert Meredith did congratulate him. Then when Frank left him, he sought the conservatory. He could be alone there, and he wanted to think. Yes ; the words that he had said to Frank Vincent were sincere ones.. He did not care if Fannie Thornton did not love him. Searching his heart, he discovered the truth. Xow he loved Ellie Warburton sincerely, passionate ly, with all his heart. Dear reader, the workings of love are very mysterious. How long this had been I cannot say. Mayhap it might have been that while he bad heard of Fannie Thornton's engagement with something like indifference, that that had turned the current-of .his love in favor of Ellie Warburton. Perhaps, if Frank Vincent's affair had been with Ellie, the change in the other direction might have just been as great. However these are merely my conjectures. Take them for whatever they may be worth ! As it was, Bob Meredith now told him self that he had all along hoped that Ellie Warburton would stand his test. One thing is certain, he would not now hear of her indifference to him, if such thing slioul be.witli carelessness with out pain. Far from it ! His whole hearted love for her might not be an hour old,but it was none the less genu nor strong for that. ' But could she love him ? ' His heart sank as he asked- himself that question. A great fear seized him, and he scarcely dared hope. Accord ing to the fashion of romancers, Fannie should have been the one to love him She did not, and how much less of a probability was there that Ellie did ? And then he regretted what he had done. Oh, if he could win Ellie, even with her knowing that he was rich, he wonld be satisfied. , , , ,. ."What a fool I have been to throw away a single chance,'.', he murmured. But it was not too late to remedy what had done! Xo not too late! He would consult Vandyke would make it right again. - . . . There came a light step. Another person had entered the conservatory. Bob's bead was bent on his hands, but looking up, beheld Ellie Warburton. "Mr. Meredith, I have heard that you had lost all your fortune," she cried, while a deeper tinge of crimson than us ual dyed her cheeks. "And I am come say that I am very sorry." Rob rose to his feet with his eyes gleamin "Are you ?" lie asked. "Indeed, I am very sorry." Rob's heart throbbed. He loved, this girltud why not speak now ? His love was foremost in his mind at that iutant out the words came: "Ellie, darling, 1 love you." Deeper still grew the flush on her cheek. She began to tremble, and Bob seized her hand. . . . "Ellie, can you, do you love ine ? he cried. He got his answer immediately. "Yes, Robert I love yon." "Even lortunelcs as I am?" he ex claimed, in delight. Even fortuneless.? as you are,"she re peated. "I have enough lor both. Dear reader, lovers are lovers, the world over. Let us leave these two to themselves. However jron may be very certain that Ellie was not a bit sorry when it was made known to her in what wicked manner her Rob mid General Vandyke had been deceiving every body. 1 . And ngain Fannie Thornton paled when she heard that Rob Meredith and Ellie Warburton were engaged. Hut paled still more when she knew that, after all, Rob had not lost his for tune. Frank Vincent had told her. She had heard it with averted face. She gained her color presently. Then she went and put her arms about the neck the man whom she had promised to marry and kissed him. Perhaps in that moment the current her love set in favor of Frank Vin cent. Who knows? I hear at any rate.tlint she makes bim good wife. I kuow that Mr. and Mrs. Meredith are happy.

Letter from Govenor Dix— He Declines to Interfere— Human Life Must be Protected. New York, March 1". Governor Dix has written a letter to Rev. Dr. Tyng, declining to interpose executive authority in the case of Foster, under sentence of death for the murder Avery Putnam, and stating the circum stances and considerations on which his decision is founded. A large part the letter is devoted to a review ot the facts ot the murder and the efforts made to obtain from the higher courts, including that of the last resort, a re versal of the decision of the lower courts. The Governor says the evi dence demonstrates the murder to have been premeditated; that the weapon used was a murderous oue, a fact which Foster, having been a street car conduc tor, well knew when he deliberately chose it as the means of accomplishing his purpose. The question presented to me,5ays tJie Governor, is, whether shall interpose the executive authority of the Suite and commute the penalty of death, which the law awards to mur der, for imprisonment for life. In sup port of the application it is urged that the verdict was accompanied with recommendation to niercy,and that it is the duty of the executive to consider the one as a part of the other. lnis -verilict ami accompanying re commendation, together with the state ments and affidavits of a large majori ty of the jurors declaring that some of their number did not believe Foster in tended to ' kill Putnam ; that they thought imprisonment for life as great punishment as he deserved, and that they would not have agreed to render a verdict of murder in the first degree if they bad not been assured by one of their associates, who professed to have a knowledge of law, that a ver dict coupled with a recommendation would secure a commutation of the sen tence, the Governor states, have been a source of great anxiety to him in com ing to a right decision; but to admit the precedent of admitting after-reve lations of secret consultations of the jury room for. the purpose of annulling verdict rendered as- true under the so lemnity of an oath, would be perilous any condition of society, and in the present defiant reign of crime such a precedent would be fraught with in finite danger to public order. With a firm conviction that there was no error n the rilling of the Judge at the trial, and that the evidence freely warranted the jury in rendering a verdict of mur der in the first degree, there is nothing the case which can justly commend to executive clemency, and he cannot interpose to mitigate the punishment. he did disregard the evidence and judgment of the courts the inevitable effect would be to imptir the force of judicial decisions and break down the barriers which the law has set up for the protection of life. So far as depends on ra, the supre macy of law will be inflexibly main tained. Every man who strikes a mur derous blow at the life of his fellow must be made to feel his own is in cer tain peril. - If we cannot by firmness of purpose attain this end, we may soon be forced to acknowledge the dishcarten- g trnth that there is nothing so cheap so ill protected as human life. Can Animals Count. M. Ilouseau says: The miile is sup posed to be able to count as far as five, least, and this is considered to be es tablished by the following observation. There is a short branch line of omnibus in Xew Orleans, where each mule makes the journey five times successive before being changed. The veteri nary surgeon of these animals called at tention to the fact that at the end of each of the first four journey cs they are silent, but as they approach the end of fifth they neigh. But this is not satisfactory. The end of the fifth trip may be marked by separations for feeding the animals, which they hear smell at a distance, and these may have produced responsive neighs, flerib- ners. . , . . . A Mystery Solved. At the town of Battleboro, Vermont, about sixty years ago, considerable ex citement was caused, by a meteor,which hovering in the sky a few moments van ished with a loud explosion. It was seen nowhere else, and the strange phe nomena, though eagerly discussed could never be accounted for. But at last there is a solution of the mystery. An gentleman recently died there, and his death bed he confessed that when boy, in 1811, lie made a kite, attaching it a lantern containing a candle, so arrainsjed that when the can.l'e burn down it would explode some gun powder. One dark night he managed to the contrivance into the air and suc- ssfnlly explode it He could not die comfortably until he made this confes sion, but how great must have been the mental sufferings of the old gentleman ho for more than sixty years had been sole repository of so weighty a secret. with only oneeye?

The r Mary Celeste, an American brigantine, was fallen hi with a British vessel some four hundred miles east of tbe Azores, and brought her to Gibraltar on December 13th. When discovered she was under fore mast staysail and jib, and under this light canvass she had been pursuing her for ten days without a soul on board, the last entry on tbe ship's log being on Xovember 2Uh. No other pa pers were found on board manifest, of landing, every document which could have thrown any light npon ths history of the derellet had been remov and np to the present time, although inquiry is still going on, not the slightest clue has been traced to account the desertion of the vessel, and even conjecture is at fault The cargo, con- a..l t a i I 1 1 s,Meu UBrreus ul sP,r"B' the Pn f cask nich started.

There are marks like sharp cuts on the topgallant rail and on sides of the vessel's bows, which appears to have been done on purpose Whether this points to any act of vio- leuce, and with what motive committed why the vessel was left under sail, or apparent absence of either plunder peril, why she was ever deserted at is still an absolute mystery, for np the present moment no trace has fonnd of the lady or child, of the captain or any one of the crew.
