Twas on the shores that round oor coast, from Deal to Kamsgate spaa. That 1 found alone, on a piece of stone, . An elderly nayai man. His hair was weedy, his beard a as long. And weedT and lonr was be: Amu I beard this wight am taa shore, recite, in a singular minor aey 0,J am a cook and a captain bold , And the mate of the 2i aocy' brig. And a Ursua tight, and a midibipmite. And the crew of the captain's gig." . . And he shook his fists and tore his hair; Till I really lelt afraid. For I couldn't help thinking the man had been un&kin, t And so I simply said: 4tO, elderly man, It's little I know Of the duties of the men of the seaT" And I'll eat my hand if I BDdersUtad . How you can possibly be . At once a cook and a captain bold, . And the mate ol the 'Nancy' brig. And a bosua tight, and a m.dsbipmite. And tne crew of the captain's gig!" Then he gave ahltnh to his trousers, which mm fcrica ait seamen i am. And having got rid of a'tbumplngquld, lie spna this painful yarn: -TTras in the good ship 'Nancy Bell That we sailed to the Indian Sea, And thereon a reef, we come to grief, W hie has oftea occurred to me. "And pretty nigh all o' the crew was drown (There was seventy-seven o soul,) And onlv ten of the 'Nancy's' men Said 'iierC to the muster roil, . There was me, and the cook, and the cap- t-ain oohi. And the mate of the Nancy brig. And a bosun tight and a midshipmiCe, And the crew of the captain's gig. "For a month, we'd neither wittles nor drink. a in a uungry, we oia ieei. So we drawed a lot, and, accordln', shot The captain for our meal. . "The next lot fell to the (NancyV mate. And a delicate meat be made: Then our appetite, with the midsbipmite. We seven survivors, stayed. An then we murdered the bo'snn tight, ' And he much resembled pig; Then we wittled free, did the cook and me, On the crew of the captain's gig. Then only the cook and me was left, And the delicate question, W hich Of us two goes to the kettle?' arose, And we argued it out as sich. "Fori loved that cook as a brother,! did, .jr. nil owaa us HViauipou ubv: , But we'd both be blvwed if we'd either be stewed ' In the other chap's hold, you see, u ril be eat if you off me,' says Tom, Yes, that,' says I,you'll be, I'm boiled if I die, my friend,' quoth I; And 'Exactly so,' quoth be. "Says he, 'Dear James, to murder me W ere a foolish thing to da. For don't you see yon can't cook me. While I cau aud will cook you" So he boils the water, and he takes the salt And pepper in portions true, (Which he never forgot,) and some chopped biiaiut, And soiao sage and parsley, too. 44 Come here, says he, with a proper pride, w men uis smiling leateres ten; Twill soothing be, if I let you see Ilow extremely nice you'll smell.

Aunt Betsy she was "Aunt Betsy" to the whole neighborhood who had been watching her through her spectacles ever since she came through the gate, wondered for tbe hundredth time at least, what sorrow could cling to a life so youneasbers, and leave so deep a shadow on her face. For Miss Went worth's face was not bappy one. It was like a child's when it is in dread. Tbe blue eyes seemed always full of expectation, and shadow in them told that that which was expected was something bitter and fearful. Kiss Wentworth's face was a pure truthful one. Aunt Betsy could that whatever tbe sorrow of ber consisted in, it was . not tbe sorrow guilt. From tbe day when Hiss Wentworth came to board in tbe fami- , Aunt Betsy had liked ber, and as weeks went by, and she grew to know tbe girl better, she felt satisfied that the shadow on her heart came from something beyond herself. I want to get away from the world," girl bad said, when she sought a home in the farm-house. At least from of tbe world Iknowanythingabout. want quiet and rest. I am tired." She never said anytiiing about ber friends, and Aunt' Betsy sometimes ondered if she bad any. She was si lent as to her past, and Aunt Betsy un derstood well enough that her boarder wanted it to be as a book that is closed laid away. What she dreaded most was that something might open it at of its bitter pages, and she should obliged to go over the pitiful story again. She had secured the little country school, and had at once won the good will of the children, and with them for friends, it was easy for her to gnl into the good graces of their parents. Everybody liked Miss Wentworth ; she as so quiet, so thoroughly lady like kind. "I have bronght you. a letter," she said, as site came up the steps. "Per haps it is the one you have been look ing for so long." I shouldn't wonder," answered Aunt Betsy as she took the letter. "Yon look jest tired out. Set down here In this rocker, an' let me bring yon a good cold drink of water." - "Oil, don't mind me," said Kiss Went worth, dropping her straw hat on tbe floor, and sitting down in the door-way, a dejected way, her head dropping ber bands wearily. "I am tired, I guess, and and " Her words were drowned in a sudden of weeping. Tbe lonesome, sorrow ful pain at her heart, which she bad striven to keep out of sight as much as passible was up in arms to-night and overcame her. "Poor thing," sali! Aunt Betsy, her kind eyes full of tears, and her face full sympathy. And having said that, was at a loss what further to say do to comfort this girl whose trouble knew noJiing of. Miss Wentworth got up and went up her room. And when tea was ready did not come down. She had a headache, she said. "A : heartache, more likely," Aunt Betsy said to her husband, as they sat down to supper. "Poor thing! I feel sorry for her." After supper was out of the way, unt Betsy bethought herself of the letter, and sat down to read it. a It was from ber nephew, who held position on a newspaper In the city. Every summer be came ont to spend few weeks on the farm. It was quite dusky when Aunt Betsy folded np her letter. As she slipped back Into its envelope, Sfiss Wentworth came down stairs. There were traces of tears about ber eyes yet. "I have just ben a-readin my letter," said Aunt Betsy, anxious to keep Hiss Wentworth's mind : off its troubles. It's from Harry that the nephew was tellin' yon about yen know. He comin' Honday. I'm real glad, for he's one of the best natured fellows livin an' he'll cheer ns all np a bit, I.reckon Nobody has tbe blues when Harry': 'round. You'll like him, I'm sure yonng folks is alius the best company for young folks." . And on Honday when Hiss Went worth came home from school, she saw a yonng man leaning on the garden gate, and knew that Harry Fields had come. He did not see her until she had reached the gate. He looked up sud denly to find her standing there. "Excuse me," be said, opening tbe gate for her to pass. "Have I been keeping you out?" ' ' "Ob, no, sir," answered Hiss Went worth, "I had just reached the gate when you looked up and saw me." Harry, that's Hiss Wentworth,1 ealled out Aunt Betsy from the porch, I want you to "be jfettin' acquainted.' "I am bappy to meet Hiss Went worth," said Harry, with an amused look in bis frank brown eyes. "Let us be friends," he added, holding out bis hand toward her. "I already felt quite well acquainted with you, for Aunt Betsy has been telling me.about you.' She gave him her hand, and said a few simple words in reply, while Har ry's handsome eyes were on her face in earnest admiration. "It seems pleasant to be back here again," be said, alter that little inter val of silence common to tbe opening stages of an acquaintance. "Every thiug seems so quiet and peaceful here." "Yes, there is peace and quiet here,' she said, and Harry saw a little shadow darken in her eyes, as if she was re membering a time when there was not peace and quiet in ber life. And so began the friendship of Har ry Fields and Hiss Wentworth. "I like ber very much," be told Aunt Betsy, when be bad been there a week. She seems to have known a great deal of trouble, and she can't get rid of the shadow of it. Perhaps the trouble is not over yet. Has she ever told you of her past life?" "Sot one word," answered Aunt Betsy. "She don't like to think of it, I know." Some of tbe pain faded out of Hiss Wentworth's face after a little. Har ry's cheerful laugh and happy spirits helped her to forget for the time some of those things she would fain have forgotten wholly. But that could not be. He read to her and walked with ber the pleasant country lanes, and through tbe orchard paths; and there were quiet, pleasant little talks in the garden among the late roses and lilies. And over all was the spell of youth and summer-time. What wonder that be learned to love the woman with tbe sweet, sorrowiul eyes, and the patient face! There would be days together when she seemed to shnn him ; when it seemed if she left that it wertrbetter for them to be apart. Then she would suddenly change in her behavior and brighten up, as she always did when Harry was near, and he would fancy that she cared tor him and thinking this, he would grew tenderer in voice and manner, as men do when they are with the woman they love; and then, when it seemed bat a step more to complete happiness she would suddenly become distant and reserved, aud he would see no more ol her for a long time, except when they met at the table. And always when she held herself aloof in this way, he noticed that tbe shadow on her face was deeper, and the sorrow in her eyes was pitiful to see. At such times he longed to take her in his arms and comfort her. One evening he met ber in the gar den. She bad avoided him for several days, and now that a chance presented itself be determined that there should some kind of an understanding be tween them. "I didn't know that you were here," she said, in a kind of frightened way, and be heard a quiver in ber voice. "I I think I will go m." "Not yet, Ethel," he said, putting out hand to keep her back. He had nev- called her Ethel before, and he saw the brief color that came in her cheeks be spoke it. Then the flush died away and left her very pale. "Please let me eo." she Dleaded. "In deed, I must." Wait," he said. "I want to talk with you. I can't stand this any long er. I want to know how the matter is between us. Ob, Ethel, I love you." The young man's voice was full of strong and earnest passion. His hand some face was all aglow with it. "Oh, why have you told me this I" she cried, as if he had dealt her a strong blow. "I had enough to bear before, God knows." "Ethel," and his arms were around her, his strong , brave arms, that would count it pleasure to shield her from all the world henceforth, "let me help you, I can, and tell me that you care for me a little. You do, don't you, Ethel?" She turned Iter white, pitiful face to his, and be knew well enough then that she loved him. "Let me go," she cried, freeing her self from his'arms. "I want to tell you something. I ought to have told you a long time ago; I ought to have gone away from here when you came. I nev er would have told you, if if it hadn't come to this, but the truth must be told now. I am another man's wife." "My God, Ethel !" he cried, reeling as if with sudden faiutness, what do you mean ?" "I mean what I said," she answered, drearily. "Sit down here, and let me tell you all about it. You have a right to know." She made a place for him beside her on the little rustio bench under the elm, and then looking straight before her, witli a wild, unutterable pain in her lace, she told her story. "I was married when I was only six teen, to a man who was comparatively stranger to me. I had known Hugh Wentworth scarcely a month when my a do a I are us. to you and "I it "I any I Let for the day your said. good-night, and him city. that held did, to be ever yet to near the and on. father told me that I was to marry him I refused to do so, but my father' threats prevailed, and I was forced to obey. What influence Hugh Went worth bad over my father I never knew but in bis bands my father was as but a child. I knew before I had been mar ried a month, that my husband was bold, bad man. Often, when be was under the influence of liquor, he beat me; and sometimes I thought he would kill me. For two years I staid beneath his roof; and then, when .;life bad be come a curse to me, I left him, and tried to hide myself where he would never find uie. But he did find me, and I had to go back to the old life and I dragged out two years more of living death. I think he got so be bated me at last, be cause he could not make me as bad as he was. Often I hoped he was going to kill me but he was never merciful enough for that. Then, in some way. knowledge of his wrong doings got to the ears of justice and one day he was arrested. He swore, when the officers took him away, that I had been the cause of it; and in his awful rage he threatened, if he ever got away, to make my life tenfold mere miserable than it bad been. As if be could do that ! I never knew who caused his ar rest, hut I was innocent. I did not know how bad, how great a vallain he was until lie was tried; and then I felt faint and dizzy every time I thought of the years such long, terrible years they seemed that I had lived with him. He was sentenced to ten years in State's prison, and he is there now. saw him the day before they took him away; I went to tell him that I had nothing to do with his being brought to justice. I didn't want him to believe that of me, because, bud as be was, bad as I had known him to be, I had been or had tried to be, a faithful wife to him. .But he would not listen to a word of mine; and the last words be said, were, to tell me bow much' he would cause me to suffer when he was free. Since then I have not known what peace really is. I have heard that he was to be pardoned out; and I am haunted by constant fear of meeting him some time when I least expect it. He will seek me out, I know. I have felt greater sense of safety here, than any where else, because it is so far away from the scene of all my trouble; and seems so far away from the great world outside. But he would find me even here." Her face was white with pain, with fear, It might be. "My poor darling!" ho cried, folding her in his arms his voice broken and low. "Must this man's life stand be tween ns ?" "Don't!" she said, wearily. "If had told you this before, it would have saved you so much of sorrow. Oh, why did you come here ?" And suddenly her face grew wetwKh tears, and she sobbed like a child, in an utter abandon of grief. "Ethel, tell me one thing," he said, earnestly. "Have I been mistaken or you love me? You cannot refuse to answer my question." . "Oh, I do love you," she cried. "And because I love you, because I know that you are suffering too, my lead seems heavier to bear. Oh, it's such a sor rowful world ! I wish I were dene with it." "And you do love me, Ethel !" The knowledge was so sweet to him that for moment be forgot all else. "I have tried to keep away from yon, have tried not to love yon," she said, getting up. "But sometimes our hearts willful, and they get the mastery of If you could have escaped without suffering, it would not have seemed so hard for me. A little more doesn't matter so much to one who has so much one who has so much to bear. But " "My poor, unselfish Ethel," he said, while his honest eyes were full of tears. "You think only of what my pain is, forget yourself. If I could only help you bear your burden if I could lift it from your shoulders wholly, gladly would I do so." "But you can't," she said, drearily, don't want you to forget me, and yet would be better for us both if you were to do so." "Don't ask me to do that," he said. couldn't do it. I don't want to. I shall always remember you as the one woman in the world to me." "I must go now," she said, with a shiver. "I am sorry that I have brought bitter experience into your life, but was not to blame. I tried not to be ! us be friends; we can be nothing more. Think: only ol me as one who always wishes you the best of earthly things, and keep a pleasant memory of yon." "You don't know how' much I care you if yon deem I can think of you merely as a friend," be said. "You are only worn in I ever loved: I shall always remember you as such. Some the shadow may clear away from life, and when the shadow lifts, darling, then !" "I do not dare to think of it," she "But I must go in. Dear friend, and God bless you." He bent down and kissed her in rev erent tenderness. And then she went away, and he was alone witli his loss disappointment. There was no mention of that night's event between them after that. He saw much she bad to bear, and felt that it would be as cruel as it was useless for to speak one word of love to her whom he loved so earnestly. And by and by he went back to the He gave her his hand in a silent parting, but the deep and yearning ten derness in bis eyes spoke a language Blie understood. Perhaps her face an answer for him to read, and to remember when he was away. If it it was because her heart would speak at the last. And so they parted, and he went back the busy life of the crowded city to always haunted by a face full of a white, settled sorrow, out of which looked that painful dread which was with her. And she went on her quiet way, remembering how near, and how far away, happiness had been her In tho summer-time gone by. ho and yot so far away!" on Harry Fields stood on the platform of crowded car, and watched the men women surging past in a restless) hurrying way, as if somo impulse out side of themselves was hurrying them Tim train was almost ready to depart. in of The engine stood motionless, like a lion crouched for a wild, swift leap; its great, sinewy limbs shininz and spark ling inthe sun. Onlv its slow breath ing told that there was life about it. The men and women clambered this car and that one, and were lost sight of. Presently but few persons were left standing on the platform, and the engine-bell gave its warning signal. The passive .monster with the shining lunbs began to wake np from its leth argy, and stir itself, breathing hard and heavily. The dense, black smoke floated down the train, and wrapped it in its gray embrace, and Harry Fields, think ing ol the woman he loved, and whose face lie was going to see, thought also of tbe shadow which wrapped itself about her life. The train moved slowly at first, an then began to quicken its pace. .There was a cry near by, and a man ran around a street corner and sprang to ward the platform of the car on which Harry stood, just as two men came around the corner in evident pursuit. But the man missed his footing and fell heavily forward down to his death, as Harry knew, as he saw the slipping grasp of the man's hands on tbe smooth wood-work which was the straw be tween bim and a terrible fate. He sprang to catch the man, but was too late. The wild, desperate clutch weakened, and then the wheels of the Juggernaut rolled on there was one wild, despair ing cry, and the end had come. The train stopped, and a crowd of startled men gathered about the crushed fragments of what had one moment be fore been a living being. They lifted the body from the track silently in kind of an awed way. Death, in such a swift fashion was terrible. "Wb was he?" some one asked, in low voice, as if he feared to break the silence. "A convict from the prison yonder,' answered on of the officers who had been in hot pursuit. "He managed to get a citizen's dress and elude the keep er. We discovered him just as be was leaving the prison grounds. His name is Wentworth Hugh Wentworth. Harry Fields heard it all in a kind of dream. This was all that remainetkof tbe man who had stood between him and tbe woman be loved this mass of bleeding, senseless, sickening humanity, from which the last spark of life had vanished forever. Dead ! and she was his now, all his. The scene faded from before him, and be saw her patient face again, but the shadow was lifting from it as a cloud from the morning. Tbe mangled form was borne away, and the train went on again. It seemed to Harry that it merely crept. He counted the miles as they passed over them. Nearer and nearer to Ethel with the blessed tidings of her free dom which had been purchased by death. At last the end of his journey came. It seemed as if the distance from the village to the old farm bad lengthened into miles. But his eager feet bore bim rapidly over it. He looked toward the bouse as he turned the corner and saw woman standing at the gate. It was she. He should know her anywhere. His Ethel now. "Ethel! Ethel!" he cried, in his ea gerness, and she turned toward him with a soft light breaking through face's olden shadow. "Ethel!" and his arms were about ber, his kisses on her cheek. "I have brought you freedom. He is dead, and you are mine now." And the shadow lifted from Ethel Wentworth's heart and life at last, as may the shadows sometime lift from yours and mine. as Number Seven in the Bible. On the seventh day God ended his work.

ELLSWORTH, ELLSWORTH Co., Kan., January 1st, 1874. Messrs. Eos-We feel thankful for tbe publication of our former letter, and as we have not told all that we know about Kansas, we concluded to try your pati ence with one more. First, we believe Kansas to be one of the foremost States for farming and stock growing in the Union, and there U no county in the State offers greater inducements to Emi grants than Ellsworth county. Ella- worth, the county seat is very near the center of the county, and also very near the center of the State, 223 miles from Kansas City ,415 from Denver. Its area is thirty miles east and west and twenty-four north and south. The first thing to be considered in going to any new country is its healthfulness. It is a well established fact that the State of Kansas ranks with the healthiest States in the Union, and Ellsworth county is much better located for health than many oth er counties in the State. We are about one thousand five hundred feet above the level of the sea. The atmosphere healthy. This county is better supplied with pure running water, than any oth er county we came through. TheSmoky- bill river runs through the county from North-west to South-east; is a very pure and clear stream with a gravel bot tom. There are many eieeks running through the county that discharge their waters into the Smoky hill. From the South, Bluff creek, Thompson creek, Skunk creek, Ash creek, Turkey creek Little Wolf and Blood creeks. From the North, Wilson, Cow, Buffalo, Oak, Spring, Clear and Elm creeks. AU these creeks are thickly belted with a heavy growth of timber, and great quantities of nice bottom land. And ont on the piains there are hund reds of good springs of water. There is no stagnant water in the. county. There are several coal pits opened in the coun ty producing a good quality of coal. Stone for building is found in all parts of the county in great abundance.There are many fine stone buildings now erec ted. There are also great beds of lime stone that are being worked and which give entire satisfaction.. Clay for brick is plenty. They were burning brick near Ellsworth all summer. Built splendid Court House and a stone jail and a brick school house that cost over ten thousand dollars. Ellsworth is the great distributing point in Kansas. 80, 000 bead of cattle were sold to buyers from Colorado, Nebraska and Wyoming this season and ever two thousand cars were shipped east in the single month of October, over sixteen millions lbs. of freight were stuped east fromEllsworth All kinds of vegetables has been tried and successfully raised that will grow any of the States. I have seen the Largest and best melons of all kinds grow here that I ever saw or tasted and we can raise peanuts without much trouble. Almost every one has all they want. One man tried cotton and had a good crop. Sweet potatoes grow here well as anr place in tbe south. Now my friends let us reason togeth er,!' know your reasoning. One says I have a farm that gives me a good living and why should I sell it and undergo the disadvantages of a new country ? would answer that man in this way You are bringing np a family which yon feel a desire to see well situa ted in life. Fetch them here and they can all have better farms than you have. Then yon say "I knew there is a good chance to get a farm and I intend to let all my boys as they become men go an seek a borne in the west." Now mv friend, my observations proves this to be bad plan. There are a great many yonug men who come here and get tir ol tbe country soonind go back east. have talked with them. They could give no reason only it is so lonesome be deprived of the fair. Now my friend come yourself and bring your boys and girls with yon and then they will be right at home. In fact we need the girls more than the boys. If we had girls plenty, tbe boys would all stay who comes, and this . beautiful country would soon he settled up. , Then you say, "I can't sell without sacrificing my property,! have an offer of Seventy five dollars per acre, just Seventy-five." That kind of reasoning sounded all ight to me when I was in Ohio, but since I came here it has no weight at Say you have SO acres of land. It brings you $5,200. The $200 will bring you and your family here, where you can buy better land at 3 dollars per acre than you now have, and have years to pay it; or yon can homestead much as you have and put np build ings and have $3,000 to lay out in stock, and one man can take care of them, and money will very near double itself every year In stock. But you say, "I am too old." Before I started for Kansas mv best friends tried to persuade me that I was too old and they came very near succeeding. Don't think you are too if you have a family. It might do say that if you were going to a heavy timbered country like Ohio was before settled, where yon must wage a war with grub 8 trees and stumps for an or dinary life time. But my dear friends is not like that. I will tell you what coming to Kansas is like. It is like loving on an old farm in Ohio where the stumps and trees have returned their mother dust, and then been sowed down in grass. Now you are not old to come to Kansas. I feel at least 15 years younger than when I left Ohio. We do not ask you all to leave Holmes county, but we think you could turn off a large swarm which would be an advantage to both of the States.

Louisville Courier-Journal. THE IOWA TRAIN ROBBERS. Their Leader Recognized as an Escaped Murderer from Maine —A Strange Story. Correspondence of the St. Louis Dis patch says, tbe following document was given to me by a man now living ia Missouri, who Is a native of Maine, who, perfectly familiar with the circumstan ces of the murder therein detailed, who was a gallant federal officer in a Maine regiment during the war, removed to . Western Missouri and engaged in a profitable and extensive business. More than twenty years ago, V. P. ' Coolidge,a young physician of excellent standing in the city of Angusta, Maine, murdered Edward Mathews, a rich cat tle drover, by enticing him alone into his office to take a drink of brandy whicb he bad mixed with prnssie acid, and then, to make sure work of the man who had befriended bim on many oc casions, he beat him on the head with a hatchet until life was extinct. The body was discovered ,and Cool id ge was arres ted on suspicion, and after a long and exciting trial, and npon the direct evi dence of a yonng student of his by the name of Flint, be was convicted and sentenced to a year's solitary confine ment, and then to be hung. During his confinement bis sister, a young and beautiful girl, was permitted to visit him, but his health gradually gave way' and before the year expired his death was announced ; he was buried and for the time forgotten. The warden of the prison resigned bis position, married tbe young lady above referred to, and moved to parts unknown, Not long af ter the gold excitement opened in Cali fornia gentleman who was conversant with the case and who had followed oth ers to the gold regions, sent bach bis de position that he had seen and convers ed with Y. P. Coolidge, This caused considerable excitement, and tbe body supposed to be bis was exhumed, and his own father testified that it was not son. Officers were at once put npon his track by Mathew's friends, bat were unsuccessful, and until a few daya since nothing has been beard of the murderer. Recently a party traveling through this State met a gentleman who knew tbe early history of the matter, and was at the trial, and he stated he had met Coolidge frequently within the last two years, traveling under an as sumed name; that he recognized him at sight, and charged him with being the man ; that he at first denied it,but final ly acknowledged his identity, and in formed him of all the important facts connected with the escape, as follows: ate very sparingly, feigned sickness, and finally a body was procured from Portland and interred as his remains, be was furnished with money, aud started for New Orleans, where he re mained but a short time and left, and since that time has been traveling al most constantly, never stopping long in one place; and the gentleman re ferred to as having met him ia the northern part of this State gave it as his positive belief, from the description of leader of the Iowa train robbers, it was no ether than the escaped murderer P.
