Latta sealed herself on the verandah, and calling. Mrs. Ellis to come and eit down by her, told of what had just trans pired, and of her promise. Mrs. Ellis folded her to her bosom, and said: "Although I love you most truly, and it will be like taking a daughter from my arms, you were right in making the promise. Ab soon as your education is completed, go and redeem your father. Be to him all that a daughter should be." Lalta was to start for school the next afternoon, Mr. Green called around to see her just before starting. Mr. Ellis offered him a situation as clerk in a dry goods store until he could procure means to enable him to resume the practice of the law, which offer was gratefully accept ed. He bade Latta a kind good-bye, ana left her as one full of grief. The last year of school was the opening of the literary career of our heroine's life. Her productions had become quite popu lar, and her name was spread abroad as the talented authoress. At the closing exercises of school, she came forward and read her address with honor both to her self and teacher. She made her exit amid a perfect storm of applause. Mr. Green was there. He forgot the past and dreamed only of the future, while he watched his daughter with eager eyes, and his heart was overjoyed at her tri umph. He saw his own aspiring and am bitious youth reproduced in her, its mas culinity toned down and softened by the beauty she had inherited from her mother. He had not forgotten his vows of reforma tion, but was steadily reaching the posi tion he had once claimed in society, and which he had forfeited. No one, save Latta and her kind benefactors, knew his past history. The world 6aid he was Lat ta Green's father, who had returned after loos absence abroad. After school Latta and her gentle friend, Mary Ellis, returned home. Mr. Green gave up his rooms at the hotel and came to board with Mr. Ellis, that he might daily be thrown into the society of his daughter, the only tie that bound him to earth. Time with its never-ceasing wheel roll ed on as it has done for ages. Mary made ber deiW in the world, and soon learned the vanities that permeate society. Her beautiful blonde lace was greatly admired, as well as the suavity of her disposition. Many were the entreaties from Lntta's friend that die too would mingle more A HEART-RENDINQ SCENE. I.oit lii n t?athomIcM ilnntjinlre A Woman nsid Ctillil Burled Alive. In Boggs county, on the road leading from Marshville to Fruwick, Georgia, and ten miles from the former town resides a well-to-do farmer by the name of Myrup. By hard work and skillful management, his productive little farm, which was the only property he found was left him by the enemy, when he returned to his once happy home at the termination of the lale civil war. His circumstances, so far as the goods and comforts of earth ate con-; cerned, had become even better than (hey were when the labor of the field was per formed by his own few indolent and much indulged slaves. And even now his con dition might be as pleasant as it is pros-" perous, but for the calamity that has so recently and in such an unusual and shocking manner overtaken him. His amiable and loved wife, who was a helpmeet indeed, early after breakfast had taken her infant child about nineteen months old, in her arms, and had gone off in search of a fine and favorite milch-cow, that for the first time had failed to come the previous evening, to add her daily con tribution to the rich dairy of her kind and grateful mistress. On coming home from the field to his dinner, Mr. M. learned that his wife and sweet little prattler, the two most precious of all his earthly treasures, had not made their appearance. Almost frantic with fear and excitement for their safety, know ing that a very large bear had been seen in the swamp near by only a few days before, he put out immediately in search of the missing ones. All the lured men of the place followed and each takin different direction; the whole country was ransacked for several miles around. The neighbors, also, as the sad news reached them joined irt the search. The sun was just sinking behind the western hills, when as the miserable bus band was returning up a small branch which had its source at this spring, and aB he was still anxiously but almost hope lessly looking in every direction. While walking along he descried in a patch of luxuriant grass, in a marsh a few paces off, something like a piece of gingham, He stood horrified and motionless for a moment or two and his heart almost stop' ped pulsating as the thought rushed through his frenzied brain, that the object he saw might be his wife's bonnet, and that both she and his darling boy might be buried in the fathomless quagmire over the center of which lay this relic. Approaching to within a safe distance of this miry pit he discovered the grass turned downward and the surface of th yet, if dealing in hyperbole is permitted, hour arrived, it panged, 'tis past, but it is the very genius of seclusion, happily Kvhile memory lasts its scenes antf inci- adaptingit to the purpose-of its adop- dents will float up a grateful reraem tion, the seeming paradox reconciled in restricting the' View to the academic buildings and i& immediate surround ings.

A consequential, important chap stalked down the room, strode up to the side-table in front of me, school a- great deal, able memory. We heard of him the oth er day, and in company with two or three members of the school-board, went to the home of the prodigy for an interview. He was marvelously ready with answers to every question. Out easy starters, such as "Add 6 and 3, and 7 and 8, and 2 and 9 and 5," were answered like a flash, and correctly every time. Then when we got the little fellow at his ease, one of the di rectors took him in hand. He said: was owing, and of whom he obtained'tnore whisky. As thty returned home Galbraith again expressed the-belief thatsome person wanted to kill him. Mr. Jones paid; little attention- to thin, but told him it was- not trnr, and leaving Galbraith tog to- the bouse, went about bis busmesa on the farm. The next seen of Galbraith. he was in the house with an ax in one hand and a knife in the other. Mrs. Jones started to come in, and he-told her if she did he would kill her.
