A span of fine horses belonging to Jacob Rickenbangh took fright and ran away around the race-track, and when passing the first quarter-stretch one of them ran against a scantling an1 drove it com pletely through its body from the shoulder to the hip. The horse ran two hundred yards in that condition before it dropped dead. The animal was rained at 250. Two sooundrela called at the house of Mrs. Abraham Fit, in the suburbs of Mount Vernon, and finding her alone, demanded money. Al though orer sixty years old, she refused and defied them, whereupon they knocked her down and kicked and beat her until she was unconscious.

Young ladies are to receire gentlemen callers but one night in the week, and neither the la dy nor gentlemen students are permitted to attend any kind of theatrical amusement. The young ladies are circulating a petition which prays the Faculty to state at what hour they must dismiss their gentlemen callers. This ( a good idea. 8 me of the young ladies might lei the fellow stay all week, and claim that ha had made but one call. A raawKB named Raphael Durbln, residing sear kit.

Many people sleep with the month open, and thus make this organ perform a duty which ahould be transacted by the nose. There are many objections to this, and Dr. Wagner clearly points them out. The air in passing through the channels of the nose, for inatanoe, is raised to the temperature of the body before it reaches the larynx. Thus breathing, no matter how low the tem perature may be, the sense of cold is never felt below the border of the soft palate. Bat when one breathes through the month on a cold day the sensation proceeds as far as the larynx, and an ir ritating congh may be caused. Then, again, in nose breathing the air is moist ened by the natural secretions which cover the turbinated bones in a condi tion of health, and the short bristly hairs at the openings of the nostrils act as a filter to arrest impurities and reduce the liklihood of laryngial, bronchial, or pnlmonary, disease. Infants, athletes, savages and animals breathe through the none theordinary civilized rutin employs the month to an unnecessary, and often to a very injurious, extent The causes of month breathing are myriad. Complete or partial closure of the passages, polypus, congenital bony doe lire, enlarged tonsils, protruding teeth, adhesion of the soft palate of the posterior wall of the pharynx all these are sufficient causes of mouth breathing. The indications are not so subtle as not to be readily recognized. Retracted bps. open month, receding gums, pro truding teeth, shrunken alao, decreased size of the nostrils' orifices, wrinkles at the eyes.' outer angles, and lines extend ing from the alao to the mouth angles, are the predominant signs. The effects of mouth breathing npon the pharynx are often most deplorable.

William Nicholson was also lynched at Sandero Station, New Mexico, for murder. dalteaa kackeal. Gniteau has had his nervous system terribly shaken up. O e day last week George Sco ville left with him some newspapers, which were the first that Guiteau has been permitted to see since he assassinated the President. Some of these papers spoke very freely of Gui teau's crime, and of the necessity of hanging him as speedily as possible. He is reported to have been so excited by reading these papers that he was thrown into a high fever. Iteatli at u Praaalaeat Dlvlae. Rev.

He was borne in Strabane, County Tyrone, Ireland, in the year 1814. and was conseonentlv nia sixty-seventh year at the time of his death. TraaererriBB' Ctalteaa. The fact that the oonrt-house is three miles from the Jail, and it will be necessary to take Guiteau into court, creates some anxiety as to how he may be safely transferred. It is pro posed that Guiteau be locked in one of the Treasury Department's burglar-proof safes, used in carrying bonds, etc., the key left at the Jail, and a duplicate key be held by the United States Marshal, at the court-house, with which to unlock the aa'e. The safe en route will be guarded by mounted police. Much of the road to be traversed is commons and sparcely settled, and grave apprehensions for the prisoner's safety are entertained. Aflklrs la Taata. A dispatch from Trims states that an attack on the station was made by the Arabs who re cently attacked Ali Bey. The station master, an ex-Lieutenant in the French army, and a chevalier of the Legion of Honor, was burned alive, and ten employes, mostly Maltese and Italian, massacred. Six hundred French troops went there the 30th nit, but the Arabs disap peared long before their arrival. The massacre was undoubtedly caused by the wholesale de struction of the olive forests, villages and vine yards which General Sabatier conside ed nec essary around Zaghouan. The Tunisian author ities are evidently trying to screen the Arabs accused of murdering the Maltese and Ital- SnKeaa's Lawyer. Scoville, Guiteau's lawyer, it is said, mis ipprehends the situation, and has not the ability to manage the case with proper refer ence to the public temper. Some things that he has let drop show that his experience as a real-estate lawyer and lack of nractiee in crimi nal proceedings may lead to a course that can uuv ue anticipated except with alarm in view of the inevitable effect such a line of nolinv rnnlii have upon certain elements in the country. Unless he accepts judicious advice and proceeds witn more discretion than he has indicated we may expect to see the uureflective public ex cited again through the name acrftnnina u characterized the wild utterances during the nrst lew days after the tragedy of July 2. Beastly Ofllelala. A correspondent of the Chicago Times, who was commissioned by that journal to attend the obsequies of the late President, at Cleveland, a few days ago published an account of the manner in which the Chicago officials (or rather the officials of Cook County) conducted them selves on the occasion in question. The writer Btatcs that before leaving Chicago the officials provided themselves with edibles, champagne, etc., sufficient to last them during their absence, at a cost to the city of (500 or thereabouts. At Cleveland they got staggering drunk, and went about among the mourning thousands swearing and acting in a most disgraceful manner. They provided themselves with hacks and took their places in the procession in front of the Cabinet, averring the publio would think they themselves were the Cabinet officers. One of them took a seat on the top of a hack by the side of a driver, smoking and acting in a manner at once disgusting. Only the solemnity of the occasion prevented the indignant publio from offering resistance. The fact that they were sent to represent Chicago is a severe reproach upon that city and her citizens should take some public action in the matter. The world should know their names and they should be held up to public ridicu'e and censure. Pablle Dtkt atatemeat.

Secretary Blaine's letter of acceptance to the late President Garfield has just been published and its tone shows the deep sympathetic feel ing existing for seventeen years between these two men. We make the following extract;' " In our new relation I shall give all that I am, and all that I can hope to be, freely and Joyfully to your service. You need no pledge of my loyslty in heart and in act. I should be false to myself did I not prove true both to the great trust you confide to me and to your own personal and politioal fortunes in the present and in the future. Your ad ministration must be made brilliantly suo eessful and strong in the confidence and pride of the people, not at all direct ing its energies for a re-election and yet com pelling that rosnlt by the logio of events and by the imperious necessities of the situa tion. To that most desirable consummation I feel that next to myself, I can possibly con tribute as much influence at any other one SOMERSET, OHIO, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 13, man. I say this not from egotism or vain glory, but merely as a deduction from the plain analysis of the political forces which have been at work in the country for the five years past, and which have been significantly shown in great national conventions. I accept it as one of the happiest circumstances con nected with this affair, that in allying my polit ical fortunes with yours, or rather, for the time merging mine in yours, my heart goes with my head, and that I carry to you not only political support, but personal and devoted friendship. I can but regard it as somewhat remarkable that two men of the same age, entering Congress at the same time, influenced by the same aims, and cherishing the same ambition should never, for a single moment in eighteen years of close intimacy, have had a misunderstanding or coolness, and that our friendship has steadily grown with our growth, and strengthened with our strength." - - ADDITIONAL NEWS. The Grand Jury found eleven counts against Charles J. Guiteau. The total number of persons who attended he Cincinnati Exposition this year was 234,963. The South Boston Iron Company has sus pended operations, with liabilities amounting to (300,000. Twestt pupils of the Constantino Military School, at St Petersburg have been arrested, and many Nihilist proclamations found in their possession.

Nearly the whole male portion of Pemis cot County turned out in pursuit. At the crossing of the Chicago and North western and Chicago, Mdwaukee and St. Paul Railroads, a passenger train ran into a train of freight cars passing over the crossing on the Northwestern road, throwing a heavily-loaded freight car on the platform of the depot, kill ing J.

The Mexican Government has made a con tract with Francisco Eizgo for the colonization of 200 Italian families. Biz go receives (75 for each emigrant over twelve years, and (40 for each cl ild between five and twelve. The Gov ernment furnishes land, houses, implements, work cattle, a cow, a mare, and twenty-five cents a day for one year to each emigrant over twelve years old. The colonists are to repay the same in ten years. Two brothers, Henry and William Garrett, in Louisville, Ky., became engaged in a quarrel over a game or cards, when William swore to Henry that he would cut him into mincemeat. Shortly Henry went to a drawer and took out a revolver, and William observing the act, asked if that was for him. Henry replied that it was not, but William discredited the state ment and rushd at him with a large knife, cutting through the mouth from the under jaw, and splitting the tongue. At the instant of the cutting Henry discharged the weapon Into William's body, and both fell to the floor, William dead and Henry mortally Wounded. The Steel Horse. Persons who ride or drive above Fifty- ninth street cannot fail to note that within a year there has been a sudden and marked increase in the number of bicycles on the road, and residents on any well-paved road in the same part of the city can testify that "the steel horse," as the bicycle has come to be called in .England, is often on the road as early in the morning as horses less toagn of liber. The popularity which bicycling has suddenly reached in New York is as gratifying to many who never Destroae tne eversaddiea courser as to the most earnest devotees of the new sport, for anything that will offer tie young men of our city a new inducement to spend part of their time at vigorous exercise out of doors is of general benefit to the community. The steel horse has its limitations j not by these, but by its possibilities, it should be judged. It is shapely, swiit and safe. It never throws its rider, although the rider sometimes throws the horse. It never stumbles, balks, bucks or kicks ; never takes the bit in its teeth and attempts to run away ; it Las not the vice, so dear to all other horses, of casting a shoe at exactly the wrong time, and it can make its best time and distance without being blown or running the risk ef foundering. It can be turned loose anywhere immedi ately after use. No special stalls nor any disagreeable and expensive retinue of stable-boys are necessary to its safe keeping, and the owner is never likely to be greeted in the morning with the information that his courser has died during the night. Such an array of special merits should be enough to com mend anything to the favorable notice of spirited young men. Even men who are not young could make their days cheerier and gain a promise of additional days in which to be cheery, by making frequent use of the steel horse. New York Herald. Packing a Trunk. Most people dislike to pack a trunk, and to do it well is something of an art. It should never be done in a hurry. You should first get everything - together which is to be packed, and then go quiet ly and systematically to work. Very large trunks are an abomination over which expressmen groan and swear, not altogether without reason. Still, small ones are inconvenient, except for short journeys, snd multiply expense, as the expressage is for each piece, be it Sara toga trunk or a small valise, without re gard to size. But, whatever the size of the trunk, it.shouid be filled, or at least packed full enough to prevent the con tents from tossing about. If you are compelled to take a trunk which is too large for what you need to pack in it, fill it with crumpled paper, rather than leave it half empty. Owing to the rough usage which baggage always receives, unless the trunk is closely packed the contents will be literally churned up and down, and the clothes which you have carefully folded will be tumbled to a de gree, even if nothing worse comes to them. For a long journey it is well to cord trunks. Itope is better than strap, because it goes both ways. Nothing heavy, like bootB, etc., should ever be put in the top of a trunk, since the more heavily it is weighted the more likely the hinges are to break. Dresses should be carefully folded, with the flounoes laid smooth and drawing-strings let out, the waist folded but once, the wrong side out, with the sleeves laid over the back and the fronts over all. Then, if absolutely necessary, the bannue mav be folded again down the middle seam of the back, but never aorosB. A professor at Cornell, leoturlng on the effect of the wind in soma Western parts, remarked : ' In traveling along the road, I even sometimes found the logs bound and twisted together to such' an extent that a mole couJoVt cliniD TW tMOla 4 VMU aSUBfa," THE DETIOI? ARCHITECT. ET M. E. LOCK". Somewhere I have read a strange story, t Sent down from the ages of old ; It may be some monk in his cloister This wonderful story hath told. 't ' So long it hath been since I read it. It looms indiFtinct to my mind; It seems like a f ar-diatant echo Borne on by the whispering wind. Bow onee In Cologne the Archbishop A mighty catbedrat would raise, That, reaching high into the heavens, His greatness ahould silently praire. The architect he had commissioned Wrought many and many a plan. Dreamed long over that which should make him Eternally known unto man. But, long thongh he patiently labored, At last he was brought to despair ; yNo plan he could draw appeared worthy Of projects so Taat and so rare. One night, as he sat by the river. His head asdly leaned on his hand, A demon spproached from behind hint And rapidly drew In the sand. A vision of marvelous branty Was sketched on that treacherous sand-. A wonder of coin runs and arches. And Bteeples and minarets grand. Bnt line after line the scene vanished, As fast as it ever had grown. And back to the depths of his sorrow The suffering artist was thrown. On parchment the demon then drew it, Which snatchitifr, the architect ran, And, battling back his pursuer, Triumphantly olung to the plan. Thy cunning shall profit thee nothing," The demon thus terribly swore. "And, though the design shall be finished, Thy name shall be heard nevermore." Long years had they toiTed at that building, When the architect mounted one day High up on a tower, to chitel His name where forever 'twould stay. Bnt suddenly down feH the scaffold. Before the good work was begun; The days of his life had been numbered The course of his life had been run. And, now that the labor is finished, Kowhere in the world Is it known The name of the artist who fashioned The beautiful church at Cologne. Jerry's Mortgage. Mrs. Deane put the finishing touches to her tempting little supper table (set for three), tucked Cissy's napkin around her neck, and lifted her into her high chair, then stepped to the wide, cool doorway to watch for her husband. He came in sight ere long, walking wearily and slowly, as if the fair summer pict ure of mountains and green fields gleamed upon eyes too sad to drink in their beauty and significance. A man certainly not old in years, but with lines of care about his temples, and a painful droop to the mobile, sensitive mouth, which showed a harassing anxiety a constant, daily struggle with fate. His wife walked down the grassy garden path, and took" his hand in hers. " You are over-tired, Jerry. I have a nice supper for you, and Cissy is full of cunning little ways to-night. Cheer up, dear." He looked down with a sorrowful smile, and put his arm around her. " I am tired to-night, Jjouie tired ana dis couraged. I have been to Cyrus once more, but" His voice broke, and Louie clasped his hand more firmly, and raised it to her lips. " .Never mind telling me, my dear. j. can guess it. He is determined to fore close the mortgage ? " "Yes." She walked silently up and down the path with him. "My own brother, Louie I It does seem as if he might give lis another chance, but you know how he is about money. Since he married that second wife of his -he seems harder than ever. Honest he is no man could ever say that Cyrus wronged him of a cent, but war to the knife to get his own I" They entered the kitchen, where Cissy was beating a drum solo on her tin plate, and casting eager glances at the plate of fresh gingerbread. " Papa's baby," said Jerry, and bent down to kiss her. He sighed heavily as he took his seat, while a tear stole down his cheek. " Ugly man to make my papa cry. said Cissy, doubling up her small fist, " 1 1 jes Kill him ! The 4-vears-old tot had gathered enough from her parents' daily conver sation to Know that they were in some trouble connected with " a man " whom she remembered to have seen a few days before at their house. He had talked loudly and last, ana tne mental photograph -left on the waxen tablet of that infant soul would have made an atngel weep. "Uush-sn, tjissy. mamma s aaugn ter mustn't talk so. She should be a gentle lttle girl 1" and Louie stroked the little fist'till it slowly uncurled. " Martin Best told me to-day that Cyrus has just bought another yoke of oxen, and a $200 bnggy !" said Jeny, bitterly, as he took a forced swallow of tea. "Well," said his wife, "it can't be helped, dear. But don't let us cherish hatred, or say anything we may be sor ry for. I know it's hard it's hard ! " and her lips quivered, as she looked around the neat, home-like kitchen, and glanced beyond it to the vine-wreathed window of the bedroom where her baby's eyes had first opened to the light. "You know different people have different make-ups." A great sob rose in her throat she gave one look at Cissy struggled to restrain her feelings, but the flood-tide of grief must have way, and, rushing to Jerry, she clapped her arms about his neck and burst into tears, just as a shadow fell across the door-way and a visitor entered. In the morning sunshine, in the cor ner of a flourishing field near a thrifty looking white frame house surrouneiea by substantial out-buildings, a man with a bushy, red beard and small, weasel like, gray eyes, was hoeing corn. He was so busy that he neither saw nor heard the approaoh of footsteps to the fence. " Cyrras Deane, do you know that you are a-sendin' your own soul right stret to perdition?" He looked up, Btartled. A tall, gaunt female was pearing at him from a pair of glistening spectacles a woman in a rusty black dress and a straw "shaker " trimmed with a bombazine cape and a single bow of blnok ribbon. It was Miss Mahala Truffett. She ws that universal village character of whom the weak and vicious so justly stand in awe a woman who speaks her mind and a very startling way she had of doing it. Being possessed of considerable prop erty ana social position, she was allowed to exercise her privilege to her heart's content. A tongue like forked light ning, when occasion required, but a heart o'erflowingwith love for the strug gling and suffering. Cyrus Deane shift ed his hoe uneasily. "I don't see heow you make it eout thet I'm a-goin' any faster'n other folks. I hain't done nothin' to disobleege you tUet I know 1881. "You know what 1 mean. 1 was up to Jerry's last night." She gave him another steady look from those Khada-manthus-like glasses. TTia gaze fell be fore hers. "I hain't pizened none o' Jerry's crit ters, nor set his barn afire, hev I ?" " You've pizened his peace o' mind. You've worn him out with worry, till he's a walkin' ghost. I set great store by . Louisy Ann, I do, and when I see her a-gittin' that fit o' high-stericks last night, all along o' your hardness and scrinchin meanness, I como as nigh bilin' over as ever I did in my life 1 Your own brother, Cyrus Deane ! The little, curly-headal chap that, like enough, slept on the same pillow with you many a night. What would your mother ha' thought, ef she'd ha' knowed heow different you'd turn out ? " Cyrus Deane drew down his bushy eyebrows, and gave an energeiio kick to a small bowlder. " Jerry's hed ez good a chance to git along ez me. We started even. It's his own lookeout 1 He hain't no hand to manage never was never could git fore handed in his born days ! " " The more reason why you ought to be merciful. He hain't hed ez good a chance ez you. The year that your barns was groanin' an' runnin' over, his wheat got the weevil, an' his corn ketehed the mildew. His cattle died, an' his tools was stole. He laid sick with rheumatic fever, and hed a doctors bill of $90 to pay. Do you call thet ez good a chance ez yours? Louisy Ann works ez hard ez any woman cookin' an' cleonin' an' grubbin' an' never had the fust scrap o' hired help, 'cept for eleven days wen Cissy was a baby an' she never gits a ride in a bran-new buggy, nuther ! " casting a keen glance toward the wagon shed. Cyrus mopped his beaded brow with a red cotton handkerchief, and took np his hoe with a determined air, as if to end the conference. " I hain't been harf as hard on him ez some folks would ha' been. I've gin him time, and gin him time, till my patience is clean tuckered eout, an' he keeps a-fallin' behind instid of gittin' forrard. He's younger'n I be, he kin go West I " Miss Mahala took off her "shaker," and shook out the cape, straightened out the bow, and set it on her head again, then said, in slow, measured tones : " May the Lord hev mercy on your soul, Cyrus Deane I Ef He measured it eout to you ez you do to ether folks, you'd hev precious little to be thankful for." She walked slowly down the road, and Cyrus went on with his hoeing. He didn't consider himself a hard man. Honest outwardly, he was, as Jerry had said, but " war to the knife to get his own." In two short weeks he could foreclose the mortgage, and Jerry's little place would be his own. Would he do it ? Miss Mahala's words were verjuice to his conscience for a brief minute nobler feelings strove with his greed of gain, then, dashing down the hoe : " No! Jerry's got to look eout fer him self. He's a grown man not a baby 1 Why carn't thet old vinegar -face mind her own business ? " In the afternoon he drove to the next town in his new buggy. A little flossy haired girl ran out from a nook in the woods, and cried: " Man man take me a little ride, do, please." He reined up the horse and helped the little creature in. Cyrus Deane had one soft spot in his heart it was for lit tle tiny children. No prattling hps had ever called him "father." It would have been better for those he had to deal with had it been otherwise. " And whose little gal be you, pray, out here in the woods alone?" he " I'm Cissy Deane, and mamma lets me go to the big rock by myself, 'cause I know the way." She looked up and gave a little howl. " Let me out ! Oh, let me out ! You're a bad, dreadful man ! You're the man that made my papa cr j ! " She scrambled down, and shaking her, tiny fist at the buggy, stamped her foot, and ran away. A bitter look came into Cyrus Deane's face. " My own brother's youngster an I never would ha' knowed her ef she hadn't told me her name. She'll hate me too, like as not 1 " He whipped up his horse and drove on rapidly. Fate seemed determined to thrust the mortgage business in his face, at every turn. He had two weeks be fore him. He could change his mind whenever he chose. Should he do it? Cyrus Deane and his wife were eating their early breakfast next morning, when Miss Mahala gave a short knock at the kitchenioor, then, according to the pre vailing custom, opened it and walked in. With a rather grim " good morning " to Cyrus, and a stifnsh nod to Mrs. Deane Number Two, who handed her a chair, she proceeded at once to the business that had brought her there. "Heow much 'ill you give fer that big blackberry lot o'mine, Cyrus Deane, south of Anthony Woods' place? " Cyrus looked surprised. " Why, what be you wantiu' to sell that blackb'ry lot fer? " . "That's jest the identikal question. Sposin' I dew want to sell it, what will I sell it for? In other words, what 'ill you buy it for?" Cyrus Deane's little gray eyes twin kled. His vulpine instincts scented a bargain. Ho hemmed and hawed: " Waal now come to think on't, th' ain't much go6d in a blaekb'ry lot. You carn't keep the pesky boys off of it to save yer life 1 " " Ef you couldn't scare 'em off, I don t know who could," said Miss Mahala, with a snap. "It's splendid land. You could plow 'em under and raise 'most nnvthiu' on it. I hain't had much time to bother with it, lately, so it's laid there, and laid there. Thur's one or two ben askin me 'bout it. " Yaos yaas!" said Cyrus, and hitched in his chair. Miss Mahala sat silent She felt sure of her man. Cvrus pushed away his plata and moved back from the table. His wife began to clear off tho dinh.es. "Sposin' you struck a party that wanted it, heow much 'ud you take fer it, did von say ? "I didn't soy. I asked how much you'd give me for it." Cvrus reached out his horny hand and pulled a splinter from the broom that hung near. "Waal now !" picking his teeth, "'tain't likely anybuddyud give you more'n a hundred dollars fer it. Would you sell for that ?" ' "Of course not." said Miss Mahala, promptly, "it's worth jest double every cent of it." "Thun " began Cyrus, and knn hm brows. . " It will be a building lot some day, when the village grows. Then whoever owned it could git $500 fer it, easy," said Miss Mahala, NUMBER 28. " Why don't you hold on tew it, then ?" asked Cyrus, quickly. 1 " Because I'd ruther sell it now," and Miss Mahala snapped th clasp of her old-fashioned reticule hanging on her arm. I " I couldn't give $200 fer it, no way at all. Would you take. $150?" I " Call it $i75 and it's a bargain. ! John Haley 'ud jump at it ef he could git it at that price." Cyrus threw down the broom splinter and reached for another. j " Kemember, in a few years you may git $500 for it !" ! " I mought and then agin I mought ent," said Cyrus, then, suddenly slap ping his knee, " Wall call it a trade at $175 I Do ye want it all to-day, cash down?" "I don't want any cash at all. I'll give you a deed o' the lot an' $125 in cash beside, ef you'll trade me " i The conclusion of her sentence had the effect of an electric shock on her audit or, i " Thun you don't mean it I .What in kingdom be you a thin kin' of, to take hole o' sech a resky piece o proputty ez that ?" " I hain't afeard o' the resk," said Miss Mahala, drawing forth a roll of greenbacks from her reticule. ! The bargain was made. They went to the Squire's to have a deed made out; and, as Miss Mahala's stiff, straight fig ure disappeared down the road, a craity smile crept over Cyrus Deane's face, and he slowly ejaculated : " Of all the tarnal fools on the face of the airth the tarnal est is a wom an when she sets eout to tranzact biz- ness ! 1 A few hours later Miss Mahala stepped softly across the threshold of : Jerry Deane's home. "I hain't forgot that this is Cissy s birthday. I've fetched her a little pres ent," setting a plate on the i table. Tain t much to brag oi, only a loai o lection cake, but Timothy Meaaowses wife (she was "Liza Blyhn) used to low that I was the beatenest hand at 'lection cake that she ever see. I don't say it to boast Go on with your dinner. 1 ve et mine." ' She gave Cissy a loving hug, and helped herself to a chair, receiving Mrs. Deane's thanks with a "Sho, 'tain't nuthin to speak of only I thought I'd jest like to celebrate. Uissy s a peracier pet o' mine, you know." After a pause, she contmnea; "iiy the way, Louisy Ann, you'd better put it on another- platter. It's ben on that one bo long it s ail got sweatea down." - I As Mrs. Deane lifted it sne discovered a folded paper underneath. " What's this ?" she exclaimed, in surprises "Jest open it an' see," said Miss Ma hala. " Didn't I tell you I wanted to celebrate?" and the rhadamanthus glasses grew suspiciously cloudy. " Jerry ! Ob, Jerry I It's the mort gage ! How ever did you get hold of it, MissMahala?" "That's my affair " said Miss Mahala. ' The only difference is that you kin pay it to me instid. o Cyrus an' you kin take your own time to it, Jerry. I know what kind o stuff Louisy Ann's made of. She d work herself to a shad der to git it paid off, ef I'd let her. But I tell you, once for all, I don't car- late tew. Yeara later, when, m the inexorablo retribution of events, Cyrus Deane, by a peculiar succession of calamities, was rendered a homeless and ruined man, it was his brother's roof that sheltered him and his it was his brother's hand that bestowed the wherewithal to start anew it was his brother's hope and courage that warded off despair, and saved him from a suicidal grave.

An explanation of the derivation of words will give a puoil an insight into their history, and he will comprehend their use and power- " Sierra " means a " saw ;" hence the use of the terms Sierra Nevada, Sierra Morena, for the mountains look like great saws turned up to Uie heavens. " Frank " comes from a nation that possessed Gaul. They were distin guished from the Gauls by their love of freedom, their scorn of a lie. So marked was this national trait that it was applied to denote moral distinc tions. "Slave" was once a noble word, meaning " glory." It was significant of freedom. But the slaves (or Schlaves, as once spelled) became cap tives to the Teutonio race, and so a "Slave " was synonymous with one who was subject to another. " Turkey " is applied to a fowl that originated in this country, but it was supposed by the common people to have come from Turkey. "Daisy," Chaucer tells us, means " day's eye" eye of day. The sun had this title first, but those who saw tho daisy saw a likeness to the sun the white flowerets resembling the rays hence the name. "Knave" meant originally only " lad " and it now means that in Ger many, but so many lads were bad that it got to have a bad significance. " Villain " meant a man who worked on a villa or farm ; but so many of them had rough, hard natures that it took a low signification. "Silly "in the old English means "blessed." 'Our early poets use the word to show harmlessuess. - The " silly sheep " is very common. But how the word has changed 1 School Journal. Humor and Happiness.
