"Why, as to that," said the engineer, "Ghosts ain't things we are apt to fear, Spirits don't fool with levers much, And throttle-valves don't take to such; And as for Jim What happened to him- ' Was one-half fact and tother half iim! Riumiog one night on the line, he aw A house es plain as the moral law" Jast by the moonlit bank, and thence .Came a drunken man with no moiosense Than to drop on the rail, Flat as a flail. As Jim drove by with the midnight mail. Down went the patents. Steam revel sed. Too Late! for thcrsoone a 'thud.' Jim cursed, As his fireman, there in the cab with him, Kinder stared in the face of Jim, And says, 'what now?' Says Jim, 'What now! Fire jnrt run over a man that's how! The fireman stared at Jim'.' They ran Back, hut they never found house nor man Nary a shadow within a wile. Jim turned pa!c, but he tried to smik Then on he tore Ten mile or more, In quicker time than he'd made afore. Would you believe it! the very next night Up rose the hoiise In the moonlight white; Out comes the Chap and drops as before, Down goes the brakes, and the rest encore And so in fact. Each night that act Occurred, till folk swore Jfm was cracked. Humph! Let me see; it's a year now, most, -I met Jim, East, and says, 'How's yourghost?' "Gone,' says Jim; 'and more, it's plain That ghost don't trouble me again; I thought I shook That ghost when I took A place on an Eastern line but look: What should I meet the first trip out, But that very house we talked about. And that self-same man! 'Well,' says, I, 'I guess It's time to stop this yer foolishness," So I crammed on steam, When there came a scream From my fireman and it broke my dream You've killed somebody' Says I, 'Not much; 1'vo been thar often and tliar aint no such, . And now I'll prove it.' Back we ran, Aud darn my skin! but tbar vat a man . On the rail, dead, Smashed in the head Now I call that meanness!" That's all Jim said. Kansas Pacific Railway, 1873. BY BRET HARTE. Selected Story. JOHN'R TRIAL. BY P. DEMING. just where the wilderness road of the Adirondack Ilighlands strikes the edge of the great Champlain Val ley, in a little clearing.is a lonely log house. On the 10th day of July 1852 a muscular, gaunt woman stood at the door of the house, overlooking the vast extent of the valley. From her stand point ten miles of green forest swept down to the lake's wind ing shore; She saw the indentations made in the shore line by "the bay" and beyond the wide waters, gleam ins in the fervid brightness of sum mer. Specks were , here and there discernible in tne lignt nasnea Dacn from the blue, mirror-like surface, and by long watching it could be seen that these specks were moving to and fro. ' The woman knew that these dis tant moving atoms.were boats freight in"- lumber througti LiaKe cuampiam She knew there was but one boat that would be likely to turn aside and come into the little bay, and that boat would be her son John's slooo. That was why 6no watcnea so anx- iouslv a speck that neared the bay and at leneth entered it. To make doubly sure she brought to bear an old" 8DV class whose principal lens was cracked entirely tnrougn. it ravc her a smoky view of the famous sloop, the Dolly Ann, John's proper ty, and then she was entirely certain that her son. wno nau Deen tnree weeks absent on his voyage, was com inrr home. Juniper, the house dog, who had been watching her, seemed to know it too, perfectly well; for as she turn ed from he survey through the glass his canine nature developed a degree of wrizsling friakiness of which the o-rave old dosr seemed half ashamed Ho whined and walked about the door-yard for a few moments,then he o-ave hi3 mistress a long,sieaciy 100s and seeming satisfied with what he read in her face, jumped over the fence and started aown the roatl into the vallev on a fall run. The woman knew that three or four hours must vet elapse before John and Juniper would come along to the path together, tired by their long tramp up the mountain sine, one thought and waited as lonely mothers think and wait lor absent sons. At about four o'clock a yonng, (Jarfe-eved man and dog Came Up the J . . u being - ana .i. Bibiiity. the and EbS, - P. of St- ev- lebru ary M. road and to the house. ,4Heigho,-Kther, all well? Was the man's greeting. The woman's greeting was only "How do you do, John?" There was no show of sentiment, not even a hand shake; but a bright look in the man's face, and a tremor in the voice of the woman, conveyed the impression that these plain peo ple felt a great deal mere man tney expressed. - ; ; . Two hours passed away, ana tue supper over the neighbors who had seen John and the dog come up road, dropped in for a talk with "Captain" as John wss called by friends. - Soon the inquiry was made "Where did you leave your cousin William?" John had taken his cousin William who lived upon the lake shore, with him npon his last trip, and hence Question. But John did not answer tne ques tion directly. He seemed troubled and unhappy about it. He nnaiiy acknowledged that he and William had not agreed, and that high words and blows had passed between tnem and added that his cousin had final ly left the boat and had gone-away A. . , 4 1 1, in a nun, ne Knew cut ucie, somewheres into the pineries of nada. He declared, getting warm his recollection of the quarrel, "he didn't care a darn" where went, any way. A month passed away: it August, Cousin Will did not return But certain strange stories came the lake from Canada, and reached lhe dwellers along the Adirondack Wilderness road. No cousin liam had been seen in the pineries; but just across the Canada line, the mouth of Fish ltivcr, where sloops were moored to receive ladine of lumber, a bruised, swollen festering corpse had risen and floa ted in the glare of a hot August day. The boatmen rescued it and buried it upon the shore. They described it as a body of a hakyvigorous young man, agreeing in hight, size and op pearance with cousin William. And there was another story told by the Captain of a sloop which had been moored at the mouth of Fish River, near by John's sloop, on the fatal voyage from which cousin William had not returned. The Captain said that upon the 4th of July he had heard quarreling upon John's sloop all the afternoon, and had noticed that only two men were there. He thouglft the men had been drinking. At nightfall there was a little lull; but soon af ter dark the noise broke out again. He could see nothing through the gloom, but hfteard high and angry words, and aMength blows, and then a dull, crushing thud, followed bT a pludge into the watcr,and then there was entire silence. lie listened for an hoar, in the stillness of the sum mer night, but heard no further sound from the boat. In the early gray of the nest morning the Cap tain, looking across the intervening space to John's sloop, which he de scribed as hardly a stone's throw from his own, saw a hat lying upon the deck, and using hi3 glass was confident that he saw "spatters of blood." He thought it "none of his business," and taking advantage of a light breeze sailed away and. said nothing. But when the floating corpse was found he felt sure there had been a murder, and, as he ex pressed it, felt bound to tell his story like an honest man, and so told lL Putting these things together, it soon grew to be the current opinion upon the lake tha Captain John had murdered bis cousin William. Tle dwellers upon the Wilderness road also came, by slow degrees and unwillingly, to the same conclusion. It was felt and said that John ought to be arrested. Accordingly, on a dreary day in November, two officers, from the county town twenty miles away down the lake shore, came and climbed the steep road to the lonely log-house, and arrested John. It was undoubtedly a dreadful blow to those two lonely people living isola- tedin the wilderness. Perhaps therf'ay 1. i i l 1. . : 1 the the his the .. uuv Ca in that Will was up Wil at the their ought to have been some crj'ingand a scene.but there was no such thing. The officers testified that neither John nor his mother made any fuss about it There was a slight twitch ing of the strong muscles of her face, as she talked with the officers, but no other outward sign. John gave more evidence of the wound he felt. He was white and quivering, yet he. silently, and with out objection, made ready to go with the officers. He was soon prepared, and they started. John, as he went out of the door, turned and said, Good-by; it will all be made right, mother." She simply answered, "Yes, good-by ; I know it, my son." 1 he trio went on foot down the road to the next house, where the officers had left their Uim. Jupiter, standing up with his fore paws upon the top of the fence, gazed, wistfully after them. When they passed around the bend of the road out of sight Jupiter went into the house. The strong woman was there about her work, as usual; but the heavy tears would now and then fall upon the hard pine floor. Sue knear that her own boy would spend the com ing night3 in the county jail At twelve o clock of that INovem- ber night the woman and the dog went out of the house; she fastened the door, and then they went togeth er down the dark mountain road, while the autumn winds swept dis mally through the great wilderness, and the midnight voice of the pines mourned the dying year. The next day at noon a very weary woman on foot, with a small bundle and a large dog, put up at the little village hotel hard by the county jail Another day had passed and then the preliminary examination came on before a Justice to determine whether there was sufficient evidence to hold John in custody until a grand jury of the county should be assem bled foi the next Court of Oyer and Terminer. Three days were spent in this ex aminatlon before the Justice; the Captain of the sloop who had over" heard the quarrel in the night told his story, and the boatmen who had found the body told theirs. Two men who had been the crew of John's little vessel were also called. But they could tell little more than that they were absent on shore upon the 4th of July.and when they retuied to the vessel William had gone, they knew not where nor why. Tie evidence against John seem ed to the magistrate clear and con clusive. But the counsel for the ac cused, employed by John's mother, took the ground that, a3 the offense was committed in Canada, a Justice in the Unite States had no jurisdic tion in the matter. This view prevailed, and after five days the accused was set at liberty. But that voice of the people, which the ancient proverb says is like the voice of God, had decided that John was guilty. It was under this crush ing condemnaiion that John and his mother left the country town on cold December day, turning their steps homewards; and at "evening time they climbed the acclivity so miliar to them, and reached the lone ly log-hou3e upon the mountains. Their neighboi'3 were glad to them back again, but were plain say that "it appears like as if John was guilty." Thepe dwellers in solitudes were accustomed to speak truly what they thought John his mother too spoke openly of matter. It was only of showing fection and love that these people were asbamed and thy. They both admitted to their neighbors that evidence was very strong, but John aided quietly that be was not guilty as if that settled the whole matter. But the voice of the people and sense of justice would not let crime rest. It came to be very gen orally known that a man guilty murder was living near the shore Lake Champlain. Arrangements, were erlected by which it came pass that the Canadian authorities made a formal application to United States for the delivery of John Wilson, belived to be guilty the murder of Lis cousin W llliain Wilson. And so again two officers, this time United States officials, climbed np to the little log-house upon the edge of the great valley. Through a drifting, blinding storm of snow, they were piloted by a neighbor to the lonely house. They made known their errand. and in the course of half an hour the officers and their prisoner were out in the storm on their way to the distant cityol Mon treal. It was many days before the wo man saw her son again. For four months John was imprisoned, await ing his trial be'fore the Canadian courts. Doubtless those four months seemed long to the solitary woman. She had not much opportunity to in dulge in melancholy fancies; she spent mach of her time in pulling brush and bieaking it up with an ax, so as to adaDt it to the size of her stove. The neighbors tried to be kind, and often took commissions from her to the store and the grint-mill in the valley; "But after all," said Pete Searlcss, ODe of John's . friends, -Sa speaking of the matter afterward, "what could neighbors amount to, when the nearest of them lived a mile awa, and all of them were plain to say that they believed she was the mother of a murderer?" But the neighbors said the woman did not seem to mind the solitude and the rough work. Morning, noon and night she was out in the snow and the storm at the little hovel of a barn at the back of the house, tak ing care of two cows and a few sheep which were hers and Johns. At other times travelers upon the wil derness road wonld see her gaunt figure clambering down a rocky ridge dragging poles to the house to be cut up for fuel. She received two letters from John in the course of tbc winter. The first told her he was imprisoned, and awaiting his trial in Montreal, and the next one said that his trial had been set down for an early day in March. This correspondence was all the information the mother had of her son ; for the lake was frozen over the winter so that the boats did not run, and no news could come from Canada by the boatmen. When March came and passed a- without intelligence from John, . , i . i , n I. a see to the al- the a this of of to the one of it was taken by the dwellers on the lake shore and along the wilderness road as a sure indication he had been convicted of the crime. A let ter or newspaper announcing the fact was confidently looked- for by the ji,Mbor3 whenever they went to 't ostoffice for their weekly mrtiU Au. .-rch went out and spring days and sunshine came, it, was Noticed that the face of Jonn'a mo ther looked sharp and white, but she went about the same daily duties as before, without seeming to feel ill or weak. On a splashy April day full of sun- shinee, stood on the rocky ridge, DacK Ok-lne nouse, looaing uown up on trie laise. Aitnongn tne snow still lingered in patches upon the highlands, the valley looked warm below, and the first boats of the sea son were dotting the wide, distant mirror of "old Champlain." A man came slowly up the muddy line of road, through the gate, and around the house ; then, for the first, the woman 6aw him. A slight spasm passed over her face. There was a little pitiful quiver of the muscles about the month, and tnen sue walked slowly down the ridge to where the man stood. She strug gled a little with herself before she said. "Well. John, I am glad to see you back." John tried to oe cool, aiso, oat na ture wa3 too much for him. He could not raise his eyes to hers, and his simple response. "Yes, mother," was chokingly uttered. The two walked into the house to gether in the old familiar way. The woman, without a word, began to spread the table, and the son went out and prepared fuel, and bringing it in replenished the lire, inen ne sat down in his accustomed place by the stove, with a pleasant remark about how well the fie burned, and how good it seemed to be home again And the woman spoke a few kind motherly words. It was the way they had always done when John came back, but now there was great sadness ic it, for had come from prison. Jupiter seemed fully to realize the situation He exhibited none of that friskincss which characterized the welcome had usually given; but when John was seated the old dog came slowly up to him, laid his fore paws and head in his master's lap, and looked sadly in his face As thev sat down to supper jonn began to tell of his fare in the jail Montreal, and to speak freely of life there. "Will yon have to go back?" said the mother, with that quiver about the mouth again. "No, mother," said John, "it is fin ished, and I am discharged." After supper the story was told over, now wen jonn s counsel worked for him, and how tlie J udge had said there was not sufficient evi dence to convict of so great a crime. John continued from this time through the spring to live at home. He allowed his sloop to noat idly the bay, while as he said, of himself rested. The trutn was ne saw, wuai others did not, that his mother carried a fearful weight, and that it was lifted by his return, the resources of her life were hausted. The change, not yet appa rent to other eyes, was clear to vision. So it is that these silent rits read each other. As the warm weather advanced strong woman became weak, and the June flowers began to bloom, ceased to move about much, and the most of each day in a chair the open door. John managed house and talked sitb hi3 mother. Her mind changed with the relax; tion of her physical frame. She longer strove to hide her tears, like a tired infant would weep with out restraint or concealment as told Ler son of the early loves romance of her girlhood life in warm valley of the We9t He learn ed more of his mother's heart those June days than he had surmis ed from all he had known of her fore. And he understood what predicted. He felt that the he he his at his uau on in had now that ex his spi the as she sat by the no but she and a in be this heart nearest his own was counting over the treasures of life ere it surrender ed them forever. There .was no great scene when the woman died. It wa3 at evening, just as the July fervors waa coming on. She had wept much in the mor ning. As the day grew warm she became very weak and faint, and was moved by her son from her chair to her bed, and so died as the snn went down. John was alone in the house when she died. , Since his return from Montreal ho had been made to feel that he had but one friend beeides his mother, lie had tver proved true. But John did not like to trouble his one friend, who lived two mi'e3 away, to come and stay with him during the nieht. So ho lighted a candle, took down from a shelf a little Bible and hymn book that he and his mother bad carried on an average about four times a year to a school house used as a church, some six miles away, and so alone with the dead ho spent the hours in reading and tears and med itation. . . ... In the morning he locked the door of his home and walked "over to Pete's. As he met his fried, be said in a clear voice, but with eye3 aver ted, "She has gone, Pete; if you will just take the key and go over there I'll go down to the lake and get the things, and tell Downer, and we'll have the funeral, say on Thurs day." Pete hesitated a moment, then took the key John offered him, and said, "Yes, John, I will tell my wo man, and we will go over and fix it, and be there when you come back." And sd John - went on his way. "Downer" was the minister, and "the things" were a coffin and a shroud. On Thursday was the funeral Pete took care to have all the people of the neighborhood there, although it hardly seemed as if John desired it. The popular voice, having once decided it, still held John as a mar aerer, ana claimed mat ne was cleared from the charge only by the tricks of his lawyer. John knew of this decision. At the funeral he was stern, cold, white and statue like. While others wept, but few tears fell from his eyes, and even these seemed wrung from him by an anguish for the most part suppressed or concealed. ile chose that his mother should be buried, not in the "burying- ground" at tho settlement, but upon their own little farm where she had lived. And so in a spot below the rocky ridge, where wild violets grew, she was iaid at rest. John spent the night following the funeral at Pete's house, then re turned to his own home, and from that time his solitary life began. He took his cattle and his sheep over to Tat-a'oi mala all foot ariAiif hia firtma a. 0y uiu ail iaov cowwuu ui xsu4W and resumed his boating upon Lake Champlain. He fully realized that he was a marked man. He was ad vised, it was said, even by his own legal counsel, to leave the country, and to leave his name behind him; but no works influenced him. Firm and steady in his course, strictly temperate and just, he won respect where he could not gain confidence, The year3 rolled by. Captain John was still a boatman, and still kept his home at the lonely log- house on the edge of the great val ley. From ach voyage he returned and spent a day and night alone at the old place; and it was noticed that a strong, high paling was built around his mother's grave, and a marble head-stone was placed there, and other flowers grew with the wild violets. Even in winter, when there was no boating and he boarded down by the lake, he made many visits to the old homestead. His figure; which, though youthful, was now growing gaunt and thin as his mothers had been, was often seen Dy Pete at nightfall upon the top or certain rociy ndge standing out clear and sharp against the cold blue steel of the winter sky. John had no companions and 30ught none. The young men and women of his set had married and settled in life; he was still the same But there came a change. Jueven years had passed since his mother died, and it was June again. Jonn was spending a day at the old place once more. He sat in the door, loos ing out on the magnificent landscape, the broad lake and the dim line mountains away across the valley. The lovely day seemed to cheer this atern. lonely man Three persons came up the road they advanced straight to where John" was sitting. One of them stepped forward, looked John stead ily in the face, held out his hand him, and said, "John, do -ou know me?" The voice seemed to strike him with a sharp, stunning shock, lie ouivered. held hU breath, stared in- to the eyes or tue questioner, ana then, suddenly becoming unnaturally cool and collected, said, " yu William ?

'They now came lorwara ana wim sucu words as they could command told the story of Wiliiam's sudden retnrn, and sought tor themselves forgivness for the cruel and false suspicion which had so ionjr estranged them from their friend9. John seemed to hear this as one in a dream.

At thU tint the two old friends, who were now crying, stepped out (of the door and cousin William sat 'down out upon the door-step. Johh founnd that a little time was not enough. He had traveled too far and long in thattearful desert of loneliness, easily or quickly to re- ( turn. A nervous fever followed the shock he received, and for some two months he did not leave the home stead, being confined to his bed. But the old house was not lonely. The men and women came, both his old friends and new comers, and tried to make up to him in some de gree the love and sympathy he had so long missed. But for many days it was evident that their kindness pained and oppressed him. "It appears like," said Pete,-"t.hat' a rough word don't hurt him, but a kind one he can't stand." And this was true, his soul was fortified against hatred and contempt, but a k?nd voice, or a gentle caress, seem ed to wound him that he would sob like an infant As he recovered from his illness he continued genue, Kind, ana shrinking to a fault By the opera tion of some spiritual law that I do not comprehend, he was, after his recovery, one of those who "in a a strange affection from others.

FOR FARMERS' LEISURE MOMENTS. MENT3. of to ana with our. we not from a faint had the with as to par. A white quail was recently shot in California. Farming operations are being re tarded by the damp nature of the soiL - It is proposed to import bees to New Zealand. The bees are removed while dormant, the nests being sur rounded by ice during transporta tion. It is stated that tho crop of an apri cot tree, in Somerset county, Ata., netted last season $102 over and above the cost of marketing. Chicago packers have handled 1,433,028 hogs the present season. It is reported that a farmer, near Emporia, while pulling his turnip crop wiuh a Btump puller, a few days since, came near losing hi3 life breaking of a chain, wnicn let a large turnip settfe back into the bed suddenly. , Farmers are again reminded to avoid the purchase of patent rights until they really compreuena wuai they are doing. Scions for grafting may be cut at any time previous to the starting of the buds in the spring, and whan out should be kept in a cool cellar, where they will not dry up. Two thousand dollars is a pretty high price to pay for a ro ter. That is what Mr. Davis, of Port.aaa. has jast given to Ira Batch, for a black Spanish cock considered tue best game bird in the country. Relieving Choked Cattle. A cor respondent of the London (Ont) Farmeri AdoocaU sajs he makes the suffering animal jump over a pair of bars, placed up as high as it is possible for the animal to jump when compelled by tne application of a whip. He never fails to relieve a case or choKing by tuis means Occasionally he makes them leap over the bars twice ; birt once, as a rule, will be found to have the de sired effect. To clean a rusty plow use coal oil and a rusty brick ; the oil should be poured on the iron and rabiied with the brick until bright. We have sometimes used strong vinegar with good effect In this, in other matters, "an ounce of preven tion is worth a pound of cure," and a little grease rubbed on while tne plow is still bright, will save both time and trouble. It is estimated that a pair of halthy sparrows having a family to bring up will consume over three thousand caterpillars inside of onu week. Measuring Hay. To measure a stack of hay, proceed as fellows: If it is a ground stack, tapering from the ground to a point, measure the width half way from the ground to the peak of the stack multiply this width by itself, and divide it by 7354 this will give the average area of the surface covered by the ataefc. i neu multiply that by the hoight from the ground to the point where the width was measured. If these measure ments are feet the sum found is the cubic feet in the suck. If tlie hay is orchard grass, timothy, millet or hungarian, 500 feet will make a ton or a cube eight feet each way. If the stack is very solid, end was cut when dead ripe, 350 feet will make a ton. If it is clover or meadow grass or redtop, 800 feet will be required to make a ton, unless it is pressed very hard.when some allowance must be made. If the hay is mixed with clover, about 700 feet, or a cube of nine fect each way will make a ton. The estimates are made from notes of great many stacks and mows of various kinds, and wilt give a fair average,.
