Conjuring a Lover. A young woman down town Imagined that a young man, who had been very attcntivo to her for six month, had de serted her, and an old woman of her ac quaintance advised her what to do. "Take one of his letters, the very sweet est of all that ho over sent you, and put a lock of your hair in it and then put it back in tho envelope. Go to tho Whito Spot, and on your way up hunt a piece of thin witch-hazel wood." Hero the old woman gavo a full description of this mysterious bush. "Then conin back and try to remember a placo whero ho kissed you standing on tlio ground. As near as you can remember, bury tho letter, lock of hair, and witch hazel right on the spot whero ho stood and kissed you and let it remain thero threo days." Tho young woman followed tho ad vice, cut olY a lock of her hair, went and procured the witch hazel, and then sbo set to thinking whero sho last had been kissed. Sho could call to mind no out side kiss that she had ever received from him, excepting ono that ho gavo her ono night while they wero walking down Ca nal Street toward Illngaman, opposite the hekert firo-brick works. Four nights ago she ropaired thither with a trowel that sho borrowed, and sho quickly buried tho articles. Tho third night was last night, and sho wont to watch that little grave. What sho saw sho after ward related to the woman. Sho said sho saw sparks of lire shoot up from tho ground. "All right," said the old con jtircr; " his conscienco is burning and torturing him. Ho'll como back In loss than ton days, Ho of good cheer. On tho third night go and get your things out of tho ground and bury them under tho eaves of your houso somewhere, so that the rain drops will fall over thorn," And that is how tho young woman test ed tho fidelity of hor negligent lover.

(From tho New York Herald, Ei.nrtEi), Pa., May C, 187C Among tho young people of tho best circles of KIdrcd "blesslo" Cookton, aged 10, adopted daiiclitor of Jerome Cookton, n rich f armor, was an acknowledged load cr. Sho recently returned homo from a Philadelphia bonrdlnir-school, whero sho had boon n pupil for four years. making occasional visits home, On ono of theso visits, nbout n year ago, she met Alva Kvans, the son of on Iron- founder, of London, Canada. Ho was visiting this soctlon with a parly of other vounjr men for tho purposo of trout lishlnir. Kvans foil m lovo witlt .Miss Cookton. Tho result was that n cor respondenco was opened nnd kept up between the two nnd a marrlago fixed upon, to bo consummated when Miss "lllessio" should havo reached the a'o of 18. Tho room-mato nnd " particular friend" of tho young lady at school was Frances Peters, of I'ctcrsvlllc, N. Y. Sho was two years tho senior of ' illcsslc," nnd left school somo tlmo beforo tho latter. Miss Peters is a blonde, exceedingly attractive, and of a dashing and reckless nature. At tho iouso of a friend In Philadelphia she met Isaac Hell, a young man, repre sented to be of nn old family and wealthy. Tho young peoplo formed nn attachment for each other at least Miss Peters fell deeply In love with Hell. As her parents had other matrimonial prospects marked out for her at home, she kept her acqualntanco with young Hell n secret from them, but, it seems, promised to marry him at some future lay. Not being itblo to havo her lover visit Iter at home, Miss Peters made mi arrangement with Miss Cookton by which she was to pay thu latter it visit, when Mr. Hull was to go also anil stay a few days. To add to tho complete ness of the arrangement, "Iliesslc" wroto to her Canadian betrothed, anil ho was to join thu visiting party. Miss Peters came to Lldred about tho middle of April, and in a few days thereafter Isaac Hell made his appear ance. Miss " lllessio" liked him from tho first. It was near tho latter part of April beforo Mr. Kvans c.imo from Canada. During tho two weeks that had elapsed since tho doming of Mr. Hell, Miss Cookton had transferred her tlVeetions to her friend's betrothed, and his love toward Miss l'etors had visibly Town cold. It did not take the Jealous eyo of Miss Peters and the young C'ana- linn long to notico tho change, as It af fected them respectively, but they had no Idea that it was any tiling more than i temporary flirtation. On the arrival )f voting Mr. 12vans " Hlessio" planned i May -day party for tin excursion to the mountains. On Wednesday morning tho party started, in accordance with previous arrangements, Jliss Cookton and Mr. Kvans in ono carriage, and the visiting couplu in another. On reaching the woods tho party strolled at random. Thoy naturally got somewhat separated; but while Miss Peters and tho Canadian were always in hallooing distance of each other It seemed that the other couplo strolled further away. The occasion seemed to bo ono of no pleasure to Kvans and Miss Peters, and they, after nu hour or so, met near this edge of tho woods and sat down to await tho return of the other couplo. They sat thero talking for an hour or more, and as tlicro was yet no sign of either Hell or Miss Cookton, both Kvans and Miss Peters betrayed evi dence of uneasiness and alarm. Tim Canadian told his companion to remain In her seat, and ho would walk back over thu hill and look for "lllessio," as ho was fearful sho hail lost her way. lie was absent a long tlmo, and finally returned, looking palo and anxious. IIo had seen nothing of either-of tho missing young folks. Miss Peters was jre.itly agitated over the result of his search, but neither sho nor Kvans at that tlmo enter tained tlio slightest suspicion that tho prolonged abioneo of tho two was by design or that they wero together. Thuy returned to tho farm-house where tlio cani.tgo had been left, in order to irivo an alarm and havo a thorough search made. They found that tho con voyanco in which Kvans nnd "lllessio" had como was gone. For tho first tlmo a terrible suspicion crossed their minds. A farmer told them that a young man and a young woman had como oil' tbo inintam about noon, ami, gciiing into toe "iv iajro, had driven rapidly oil' in tho dlic-U .n of Minot Station. Kvans would not bclli-vo that tho conduct of " Hlessio" and Ile'l was any thing inoro than n girlish prank, nnd was confident that thoy would find them .it home. Ou reaching tho farm they found they were still absent. MH Peters hastened to her room to hidu her emotion. In a there room for It here f Its little wings aro weary, nnd, like tho dear Jesus, It has no placo tolay Its head. Turn It not away, but keep It, for tho lovo of Christ, Tho child was a bright llttlo thing, and as the farmer hnd no children ho nnd his wlfo concluded to adopt It as their own. Itcamo to bo such a simshino In tho houso that thoy gavo it tlio namo of "lllcssliig," which was subsequently turned Into "Hlesslc," Inhuman Treatment of nn Agetl Hlothcr. Tho San Francisco 1'ott tells the fol lowing almost Incredible story: Mrs. Paponnd her husband occupy tho upper story at 2l8Thlrd Street, nnd with than lives Mrs. Pnpo's mother, an old lady of 70. For somo months past tho neighbors have frequently seen tbo old lady, when tho sun shone, sitting in tlio yard. About ten days ago somo lumber was brought Into this yard, and In a few days a low shed was eroded, measuring nine feet by four nnd n half, without any window save a transom over tho door. As soon us thu shed was done It was noticed that tho old lady was in it most of the time, kept, in fact, a close prisoner, tho door bclng kept shut and fastened with it wooded button. Kvery thing was quiet, towovur, until tlnv beforo jtsterday, about noon, at which tlmo tho old ladv forced tho door partially open and got I jj, inv out. This was perceived by hor son-ln-1 law, who, wuiKiii across inu filial, ui dered tho old lady back into the shed, nnd, upon her objecting, pushed her In by main force, nnd then went In hlmclf, ills wife soon followed Mm. Then thu old lady was heard to cry, " Why do you hold mo so hard? I don't want to stay In hero! Oh, don't tie mo so tight! What havo I done?" Her screaming was kept up for a while, and then it ceased ; apparently she had been gag ged. To hear the other side of the story the reporter called on Mrs, Papc. Sho said : "Tho old lady is my mother, and 1 have four sisters, all well-to-do in tho world. She Is seventy years of nge, deaf and very feeble, being paralyzed in her left side. Her iiiiud is alleeted, and sho docs not know any thing that she is saying. Sho has lived with us a long while, and sho has been a great source of annoyance If we put her in any room sho would not stay there, but per sisted In walking around and going out of thu house.

She was found, in tho sumtnor of 18C0, on tho doorstop of Farmer Cookton'ri house, in a basket. Accom panying tho Infant was this noto: This child's father Is tho (on of a Senator of the United States, Its mother Is a (lytw) girl, who has been converted to Christ and can not hear the thought of this Innocent creature growing In Ignorance and vice. Is ing to commence low down and work up, and ho established an olllco in tho cellar of his father's house, purchased two quarts of " pi," lilted his si.-ter as an apprentice, and work was begun ou his lir.-t number. The boy had an idea that an independent journal would pay host, and his first edition, which con sisted of suen copies of a sheet about as large as an envelope, was devoted to items of a personal nature. It was rath er a family sheet, also, seven of tho eight items In it being bits at his father and mother, and the lone ono was a bit of adviee to the school-teacher. While ho was out hunting up advertising and (itton cloth tacked to the boanls.tliotij; tbo floor was bare.

On a wooden chair, and elad in a faded, worn-out black dress, sat, in feebleness and nge, an old lady seemingly stepping Into her grave.
