I taught her how to read and" write'; she Knew now to tio a little when; she came from the asylum, and .we almost made: as much of her as if she had been our own daughter. .-She. was as wild as a.voung colt at times, but I never could think that there was anything wrong about her. One day she disappeared. Mr. 8. lectured her severely in the morning for some fault or other, and she seemed sullen or sulky all dayvj.Ln the .evening she went to bed at the usual hour, but next morning when I went xtp stairs to call her, as she, was late in getting up, I found that she wasn't there. She must hare got up in the night and dressed herself, and got out by the window on to thg-rpof of- the rpdrclii-and down that way, ..What was worst of all, about 300 belonging to Mr. S., whieh was in a little work-box in my room, was missing, . so we concluded that she ",, had taken it. We. advertised her and informed the po . lice of her absence, but we never coidd find her,, though we found that she got on a westward bound train that ' night.- AVe never heard a word irom her or of her until T got this letter. It is from : Nancy herself. . It seenis that ' he went on to Buffalo when she ran away, and was go ing towards Chicago on a propeller, when she fell in with an old couple going to Leavenworth, KansasI.' "They were child less, having just lost an only daughter, and fancied that Nancy resembled her, so they induced her to aecompanyithem, in deed, treated her as their daughter. They .gavejhfer.a'goGd education; 'and she writes .that she has married a fanner sufBcientlv well-to-do, and has three pliildren. ; Neith er her adopted parents nor,. hen husband know anything of her crime, "she says, and she sends the money witji interest, in a letter that made me cry just to- read- it, She had seen my address in one of the-pa-pers andent me the money. It is. indeed bred'icajst upon the waters. Such was the story, more singular than romance,- told a ReptMimn reporter by Mrs. B. herself. Chkugo Republican, .. -1V,v '".; A House .Where Men Jfever Lang-li. How do you think you would like to live, fearing everv minute to be blown upj riot jdanng to speak loudto jar any-thing,-tfpr fear of starting an explosion that would send you in an instant to the other world : You don't think' if would be very pleas ant ? Well, it isn't-1; yet: hundreds of men live in just that state, work, receive pay, and live, year after year, in the-very sight pf death, as it .were ; all, that the world jqayi have gunpowder.! , v Ydrf can easily guess that fliose'men go ab(ut very quietly, and never laugh. Tou know that gunpowder is very dan gerous in a gun, or near a fire, but per haps you don't know that it is equally dangerous all through the process of making. ; ... ... ... .... A powder-miil is a fearful place to visit, and stranger.fare very seldom allowed to go; irit one. They are built far from any town in the? woods, and each branch of the work is done in a "separate lruilding. These houses are quite a distance from each other, so that if one blows up, it won't blow up the rest, j Then the lower parts of, the. building are made very strong, while the roofs, are very lightly set on. So that if it explodes, only the roof will softer . w ... V . " . . ButinJ. "spite of every care, eometimes a whole settlement of the powder-mills will go off almost in an instant, and every vestige of the work of years will be swept away in a few seconds. But, though you feel like holding your breath to look at it, it is really a very in tereftrns process to" see. T It is made oer- haps . .you t know--of charcoal,' saltpeter and brimstone.' Each of these articles is prepared m & house -by itself ; but the house where they are mixed is the first ter- iuneneii- :in-tms building rs- an immense millstone, rolling round and round in an iron bed., LnJjiis bed, and under the stone, are;pu the thMSfaarfiiLingredients of gunpowder Therethey are thoroughly mixed and ground together. This is a very dangerous operation, be- yvu ne sione,conres m contact with itsirort-bed. it is Verv anr to strikn firi and the merest-suspicion of spark would set off the whole. The materials are spread three or four inches thick in the bed ; the vrweui,. .wmon-goes by water-power, is t.lien Rtarted. and everv man leaves the 4ilace The door is shut, and Uie mwhinej rvleft to do itsternble work alone. lien it has tun long enough, the mill Is' stop ped, and the men come back. ThU opera tion leaves the powder in hard lumps, or cakes. " , ': . The next' 'house is where these cakes are broken up into grains, and, of course, i quite as dangerous as the hist one. . But the men can't go away from this, ' they are obliged to attend to it every moment and yoit may be Sure no hfugh or joke is ever heard within its walls. ,' Every one. who goes in has to take off. Ids boot, mid put on rubbers, because oi grain of the dan gerous powder, crushed by the boot, would explode the whole in an instant.' . The floor of this house is covered with leather, and is made' perfectly black by the dust of the ftunpowder. It contains a set of sieves, each one smaller than the last, through which the powder is sifted,' and an immense groaninjt and lalniring mill, where it is ground-"is while men flhovel it in ,with wooden shovels. The machinery niakes a great deal .of noise, but the men are silent, as in the other houses. The reckless crashing of the machinery even seems- to give greater horror, and one is very ffhul to get out of that house. - -The jjla.insr-house comes next. Glazing is done by mixing' bhick lend with the powder, to give it -ft' black ' and shining look. The powder js, put. into bands,' which revolve for4 several 'hours. That polishes the grains by.-tlieir .rubbing to gether. ; The -black lead ispnrvrithtrTem, and they revolve several hour more. Of course, the dust flies from all these opera tions, and the workmen, silent, like-the, rest, look like very, black negroes, work insr in the blackest of powder, in a room whose walls and floors are blacker than,; the resr if passible it has a vcrrfniigu lar look to a straJiger, ajid, added to the horrible silence, makes one 'feel that the whole world has gone into mourning. Often, the gunpowder, revolving so rap idly in the barrels, gets very not; so tins, too, is a dangerous operation. fc1"- The stoviner house i.is the next on the -Hst,and there thtr gunpowder is "heated on wooded trays. It is very not anu no workmen stay "there.- Frrm there it goes to the packings-house;- ml is put up in barrels, kegs and canisters. -Safely through all these houses, it goes at last to the storehouse. One feels like drawing a long breath to see the teai lul stuff safely packed away, out f the hands of men, in this curious house. .... You've beard of things being dry as a powder" house, but you wouldn' think this house very dry, . It. is almost im bedded .in wator The. roof hi one big tank, kept full of water. Did you ever bear of a water-roof before ? Instead of steps -tO-go in, there a shallow tanks-of water, througn wnicu every one must walk to the door. K.'-iii.i'ti. - In none of these powder houses is any light ever allowed except sunlight. The wages are good, the day's work is short, ending always at three or four o'clock. But jthe, men hay,e a. serious look that Stakes one think every moment, of the danger and glad to get away. Though curiosity may take a man once to visit a powder mill, he has no desire to go the second time ; and he feel, all the rest of his life, that for once, he has. been Jsfcryjnr ueauui. : ., i... A Bnffalo Hunt. .. , - ' I ilvve never been an advocate of dead headism, from the fact that all my rides have been paid for. '. Did I say " all!" No, not quite all : for there was one free ride that I had, and that, too, without any extra preparation. In fact, I might say that it was altogether against my wishes. I suppose the . reader would like ; to know about that free ride. So I will try and relate it, promising to. tell the truth and to be-as brief as possible: ' . ' ' - '" There are : plenty of buffaloes in -Nebraska.-; Buffalo hunting is, consequently, frequently indulged in by the seltlers. A great many are killed ; and as they are the largest game known on the American con tinent; it is rare sport. At least, that is what the majority Of hunters call it. For Lmy partI .beg leave to differ from them. Jietore 1 had tried it, 1, like others, thought -that i woidd be crand fun ; -so. Jfromjthinking," I was my anxious to take ;my, firstrSnd hunt ! took it, and am hunt for me.- - Yeni ruli , nO, not quite. Srhall gamwul do for me now, or. in lieu of that, I'll dig potatoes. A party was gotten up in the fall of 1808, to go out to the Buffalo Range, about one hundred miles west of the Missouri River, and take a grand hunt. This, now, was the long-wished for chance for me, arfdT went along. We were well fixed for camping out, with such things as salt and frying pans for the choice morsels of st eak, and barrels to salt our.me.at. in; and, with jubilant spirits, we pushed out west, enlivening tlie journey with spns and many remark abj stories of our; difierentJmnting ad ventures. Of -the latter, I am sorry to say, I don't believe the truth was strictly adhered to in all casea : Well, we got to the Ra nge; safely,-'. se lected a good spot aud made our camp. As it was late in the day, we did : not -try to hunt, but got our camp fixed comforta bly, and cleaned and put our guns and knives in order. - That night I had a remarkable dream, and I have since interpreted it, but at the time, I laid it to a late hearty supper and hard bed, and in half an hour after I thought no more about it. ; Thus - it ran: I was at a lonesome station on the Pacific Railroad. , The engine and tender were standing vn the track. . No human .being was near. I got aboard. All steam was yet on as if waiting for the engineer. J thought the steam' was. ' too high. I took-hold of the valve to let some escape, when off went the iron horse like a streak of lightning. ' . Further, faster! hills, trees and stations were all mingled together. I was dreadfully alarmed, yet, try as 1 would, I could not stop the fiery and un tamed steed; nor dared I attempt to get off. . Then it rocked and jolted so that, to keep - my equilibrium, I grasped two stakes. The stakes soon took the shape of buffalo horns,, and the engine resem bled an immense bnffalo. Soon my im aginary buffalo ran off the track. A gul- ley was just before; down that we pitched and landed at the bottom, a complete wreck. . I awoke. -. . . . . ; The sun was just rising above the east ern prairie ridges when we started forth in companies of twos to try our skill. 1 and my companion took to the north for a bushy hollow, some two miles from camp. Arriving there we espied a large gang of buffaloes near the head, about half a mile distant. . By keeping under cover of the brush we succeeded in getting within gun shot of a fine looking old fel low without "his"! "being aware of our presence. - JSow was our chance! -'Taking deliber ate. aim we both fired at once. Down he dropped, and up we ran to cut his throat. ' lie had settled down all hi teet under I him.. My partner told me to pull him I over 011 his side, that we mij . i i. ...i I OIUCVl him., i I grasped his horns, at, the same ' time throwing my leg over his neck; In I an instant he was upon his feet, and," with a tremendous bellow, was bounding over the prairie with the rleetneas of a j race horse. - ! It was all so sudden that;' from the first movement he made in rising, I wasunable to free myself from him without danger of injury -: So, like a toad on a tussoc, I held on for dear life. I had relinquished his horns, and taken a firm grip in his long, shaggy hair. I need not say that I was alarmed, for the reader can guess that mUClt. , ;: i : ' 1 i , : '. On,yOn, we went, and soon joined a large herd, and the bellowing was almost deafening ; and the speed with which they moyjeCLwas ; certainly a -caution to the greasiest of greased lightning.

A lady called in ami asked to be- shown some velvets- and'' Pome laces, and the gentlemanly and- obliging clerk soon laid a laree -stoek before i er. ' She turned over the goorrs; held them up "to the light, vie eu iMMi oyer wiirover .ami nuauy , chases. -She had scarcely closed the dixir when a cash boy informed the clerk' that he-saw the lady pocket two pieces of vel vet trimming- and a hire collar, and an examination showed that fie was right. But the matter ended riarht there, for it went no further than til report the occur rence to- the proprietor. IIo had a hun dred reasons why lie should nut arrest the lady, or charge" h'ej with the theft, the most prominenr being (lhat she. wju a regular cusKimer'at the store,' sometimes buyuiga bill of .sikkIs amounting to two or three hundred dollars. . ;. ; i. a. .. t . . - ' 1.7 i. . .ii . . - 1 ' ' . u, ,ui-.t n'T i "L-)..nt..mani!ifa ' lit on rrpt colrtiiin I follows a dele4ion, nor is there a word to sivp the thier a '"suspicion that sue has been discovered.

Next - time she comes in the clerk will be just as polite and just as prompt, but she' will find that he does not hand the goods down aa be fore, merely handing down one box or one article at a time, and, if convenient. another clerk will stand near him and give , the lady to understand that he has noth ing to do but to keep watch of her. She has a feeliug that they are watching her, j but she doubts if they suspect the former j theft, aud so is too prudent to commit another offense A few days ago a merchant,- standing at his desk, saw a woman roll up two costly lace veils and secretly work them under ' her ; cloak," having Cjilied the clerk's attention to the;'top shelves for a moment that he might not see her. The merchant knew her well as a good customer,, but yet did not want to .lose the costly property. Therefore, when she had finished her trading, he approach ed her and insisted that she she should take a look at some new dress goods, and after that, some elonkings, and then finally asked her opinitin of some cloaks ready made, and he thus kept the victim iti the store for an hour, meanwhile giving her the history of ; clerk.who had been 'dis charged from thestore a short time before for stealing' goods. 7" We always detect every theft lib matter how small," he added, and then excused himself and returned to the desk. : The lady went back to a pile of dress goods, haded them over a little, and then departed. The merchant went to the pile and found the two veils erushed in- between some of tho bolts of cloth. ; .' j ? The easiest thing in a store to steal is a pair of gloves: A lady is not content with seeing ten pairs, and sometimes not with seeing fifty She must have the whole stock down,' and with her own gloves pull ed down off the hand to. the finger joints, she has thns two little ' pockets where she can stow away a pair of gloves. ' .... Not Jong ago, after a merchant had borne for a whole year with the appropri ations of a eertain female, he determined to frighten her out of making any more thefts in his store. She came in, "a clerk began waiting on her, when the merchant crossed over to the clerk and said, in her hearing, " Harry, I have reason to believe that one of the ladies back there is a thief, and is here to rob us. I wish you would step up to the City Hall and ask the Chief of Police to send down a detective." He made a splendid hit. She was so frightened at the idea of his having sus picione'd any lady that she purchased $30 worth of goods to avoid' suspicion, her general purchasing never going above a few shillings before. Detroit Free Pre. : Frost. We have learned that dew is the float ing moisture of the- air gently settling down upon the grass and leaves of plants, which have become colder than itself. If, HOW, the grass anil leaves become still colder, as thev will do on an autumn or winter night, tlie tiny particles of vapor, which in summer would niaKe aew. are frozen as fsoon as they fall, and appear on the grass like little bristling needles of ice. This we call ' frost. It does not take the form of a smooth layer of ice all over the blade of grass, becsuse it is the nature of ;p'ni nmrs isnts. Addre i . 5. aicthitb water, when freezing, to take a regular ! 4 8os' Ph"adf'plua' ra-, form, to crystalize. Whenever water ! The Children's Hovr.

So it is in our houses. The moisture of the air in our room touches the cold glass, and trying to', crystallize, niakes the curious frost-work on our win dows, every cold morning in winter. A singular appearance is sometimes no ticed on rocks by the roadside, and on the brick walls of houses, when in winter there is a sudden change from cold weath er to warm. As the stones and bricks are still freezing cold after the air has become Mann, they condense and freeze the mois ture of the air, and array themselves .in a snow-white garment of frost. Scholars in school are often troubled on winter morn ings by "the frost coming out of their slates," as they call it. The slutes are so wet that the pencil marks cannot, be seen. This moisture on the slate, like the frost on the brick wall, is caused, not by frost, or anything else, coming out of them, but rather bv the heat of the air goin" into them. This leaves the vapor in thfTair to settle upon them in the shape of dew or frost.

The more a man' icpoiniilishcg for -another in an hour.-the ruriro the employer" can ationi to pay lum. . - it la .i easy to regulate the rate of wajres per hour at per day: And, of course, it can be stipulated what number of hours a man vhitH work if necessary. This hour 'system, therefore, equalizes tlunjrs more justly. If a man chooses to take two hours for Jus dinner, he must lose two hours' wages. The eat ing is for his own. benefit to enable him to do aa hour's work and earn the money of fered him, just as a man bnys tools in or der to be able to build a house for another. And this system will apply to the limn who works by the month, as well as to others. - Let thennnibeT of days, of a cer tain number of hours each, lhat shall con stitute a month a .work, be agreed upon ; but let it be stipulated that if extra hour' I work are required, tltey shall be performed and paid for pro firta. 'Tbere is no need of confusion or discord. Let the day's tiiuo lie recorded every night after mutual consultation. So as to the work of the house servants. . It is not a diflicult sys tem to adopt, nor to follow after it is adopted, when ' it becomes thoroiijihlv i comprehended. Rmul JVr Yorkrr. I m i Mothers, .send your cltildren to bed happy.
