When I was thirty-ono I was passing imh!i tlie Western S ates on the track a speculation which promised well. My plans had lod ine to leave the boat Cincinnati, and sttik about sixty ilc sMilhevly into Kentucky. I found ysflf nt the end of the day in question a !nall tavern waitiu for rny supper.' had come to this particular house ouly ' accident, nn 1 certainly nothing but e lateness the hour, the rain that as filling heavily, and my own tired, in cry condition, prevented my sallying rth atoiiee in search of belter accom odations. The bouse was qnile apart om the rest of the towi:, and seemed ho one of those ilUkcpt, unattractive ns where a traveler only goe hy acci lit, and where he never goes twk-e. I mid nnt discover that there was any Iter iiuest than rmself present that vrht.and the loneliness of the place was t much relieved by the - bustling, offl 5us manner of the landlord, whose face d the marks of a low scoundrel, in my .union. However, I tesolvudto make ' best of it, and partaking of 1he in Trent meal that was set before me, I ked lo be sTtown at once to ray room t'3 request was (rom plied with,1 and the ii!ord life me alone. ' T took my candle, and carr fullr.eiaro d the room It wss a small, square iriment. with nournitiire save ihe 1. a chair and the wnshstand. I looked br the bed and behind tlie stand. b.uy was there. 1 spied a elof&t.Rnd plored it, with the same result. : The or of the room fastened on the inside h a heavy Kuvt, lnii.td.inake nasuranee nbly sure, I set the stand against it er slidinu; (he bolt; aad not jet: con it, I tnovca she hed around and cffi-c-i!!y barri.-MiIe 1 it.

"Pretty safe, this, I think,"' was my imark, as I looked around at my de lists, and throwing oir my coat,I drev o'u the breast pocket, a lonjr, leather li-'jook, and proceeded to. count iu )iilcuts. Three thouc-and three, bun cd dollars iu nOwes a largs amount to hi y about one's person ; but the basi cs I was engaged in demanded it, and had no. choice. ..It . is quite possible at I should have felt . no great uneasi ss on 'Jiis niaiit, but for the money ;as was, I felt decidedly unpleasant, and ished myself well out of the house.

L?nvin! the house withont delay, I sought a magistrate in the town aud told him my story. In half au hour a sher iff's officer, with a stronj; posse.iiad seiz ed tho house and arrented every one in it. The iuilicnatiou of the people was so great licit it was with the utmost diffi culty the officers were able to restrain them fiora tearing down the house Several mysterious .disappearances of travelers who had last b?ea seen at this inn, were remembered, and the feeling soon beeuine so strong that it was found necessity' 'Jo' take the landlord out of town to save him frotri lviichinj;.
