It was six months afterwards that the Squire came into the dmiog room where his wife was preserving great red apple into jelly. "Well, well," quoth he, "woDdere will never cease.. The Ruddilovcs have gone away." "Where?" "I don't know out west somewhere with a colony. And they say .Luke's not drank a drop of whisky tor six months." "It won't List long," be suggested pairmgiv.

Among'these are the biack cock and the golden eagle. The black cock belongs to the grouse species, and the sport requires great hardihood and pauem and an accurate knowledge of his peculiarities. Like the pinnated grouse of our prairies, he is Dolviramous ; buL un like them, is shot during the pairing sea bob, the hens being carefully spared.

It Is no py rotechnical extravagance tossy that on the ruins of that old prison was erected the temple of liberty for France and largely, for the world. That was in La Bastile was the political prison of France. Behind its thick and almost impenetra ble walls as well as in its dark and putrid dungeons, had been buried many a seret state, many victims of oppressive t oyaltv and despotism.

None of your undecided showers, with hesitating intervals, as it were between none of your mild, persistent patterings on the roof, but a regular tempest, a wild delude, a rush of arrowy drops and a thun der of openinir Hoods ! Squire Pratlet heard the rattling up against me casements, anu urew ms snug easy chair closer to the fire a great open mass ot glimmering anthracite, ana gazed with a sort of sleepy, re3ective satisfac tion at the crimson moreen curtains, and a gray cat fast asleep on the hearth, and the canary bird rolled into a drowsy ball of yellow down upon its perch. 'This is snug," quoth the squire : I'm glad 1 had the leaky spot in the barn fixed last week. I don't object to a stormy night once in a while when a fellow's un der cover, and there is nothing particular ly to be done." "Ye."," Airs. Fratlet answered. bhc was Hitting about between the kitchen and sitting room, with a great blue checked apron tied about her waist. 'I am nearly ready to come in how. Well I wonder" sotto voice, "if that was a knock at tbe door, or just a little rush of the wind." She went to the door, nevertheless' and a minute or two afterwards she went to her husband's chair. i" "J oc'f deur, it's Luke Hudduove, she said, half apprehensively. The Squire never looked up from his reading. Tell him he has made a mistake. The tavern is ou the second corner beyond. "But he wr.uts to know if you will lend him a dollar," said Mrs. Pratlet. Couldn't you tell him no, without the ceremony of coming lo me i Is it likely that 1 should lend a dollar, or even a cent, to Luke Uiuldiiove. - Why, I'd a great deal rather throw ii among yonder red coals. No of cours not." Mrs. Pratlet hesitated. "lie looks bo pi 1 died and cold and wretched, Josiah. , He says there is' no body iuthe wor.il to let him have a cent." "All the better tor him, if he did but know it," sharply enunciated the old Squire. "It he hud come to that half a dozen years a..:o, perhaps he would not have been the miserable vagabond he now is." 'We used to goto school together," said Sirs. Pratlet, gently. He was the smartest loy in the class." "That's -probable enough, ' said the Squire, but it don't alter the lac He is a poor drunken wn.tch now. ' Send him about his bu.-iuess, Mary ; and if his time is of any consequence, just let -him know he had tetter not waste it coming here ufier dollar.-." And the Nmire leaned back iu his chair, after a j o?itive fashion, as if the whole matter was settled. Mis. 1'ratlvt went back to the kitchen where Luke Huddilove w;as spreading his poor lintels over the blaze ot the lire, his lattered .atuieuts fctean.ing as if he was a pillar of vapor. "Then I've got to starve like any other ' mi.! i ..I-.. i . . . i : i .... .-. . , But utter all, I dout suppose it makes much difference if I shuthc out oi this world to-dav or tomorrow." - 'jOh Luke no difference to your wife?'.' "She'd be better off without me," he said, down -heart edly. 'But she ought not to be." "Jught, hud is, are twodifferent things Mis. Pratlet. Goodnight; I ain't going to the tavern, although I'll wager some thing the Squire thought 1 was." "And isn't it natural enough that he should think so, Luke?" "Yes, yts, Mary; 1 dou'V say but what it i.c, ' muimured Luke, iuthe same dejected he had used during the interview. .op," Mrs. Pratlet called to him as his hand lay on the door latch, in a low voice. "litre's a dollar Luke." Mr. thankfully that, after ail, Luke had not spent the dollar for liquor. Six months six years : the time along in days and weeks, almost before busy little Mrs. Pratlet knew that it was gone. The Ruddiloves had returned to Sequosset. Luke had made his fortune, so the story went, far off in El Dorado. "They do say," said Mrs. Buckingham, tnflt nft lmi Itoiicrht That 'prp Inr nnivn rm-- ttv - . .1 , . I 1 - . T-l rpusae me couii nouse, anu ne is going vo build such a house as never was." "He must have prospered greatly," ob served Mrs. Pratlet. "And his wife, she wears a silk gown that will stand alone with its own richness I I can remember when Luke Ruddilove was nothing but a poor drunken creature." tin of the third note, he is insensible to clanger and becomes an easy prey to "the rifle of the expert huntsman. Of course if you adopt the English idea of sport, you can buiid a miniature hut or blind of bushes ia the course of the day, close to the tree selected by the jealous old cock Lt STi ?g gt Vf Uy- athe through which Liberty has passed in reach- in cold blood. But this is far different from the genuine sport, where foot and baud, eye and ear, are on the alert to take advantage of any indiscretion of your quick-witted opponent. It 4s a contest be tween the acute intellect of the featherless biped and the keen instinct of his feathered piototype. The golden eagle, the tiger of his race, is occasionally seen circling around his eyrie amomr the lofty crafrs. "All the more credit to him now," said Mrs. Pratlet, emphatically. "It's to be all ot stone, with white man tels and inlaid floors ; and he has put a. lot of papers and thirgs under the corner one, Jike they do in public buildings." "Well, that iB natural enough." "I know, yet it seems kind o' queer that he should put a dollar biil in with the other things. He must have lots o' money, to throw it away in that manner." Mrs. Pratlet felt her cheeks flush. In voluntarily she glanced towards the Squire. But he never looked round. She met Mr. Ruddilove that afternoon for the first time since his return to Sequosset Luke him self, save tbat the demon of intemperance had been completely crushed, and his bet ter nature triumphing at last. He looked ber brightly in the face, and held out his band, saying but the one word : "Mary." Tremulously she replied, "I am glad to see you here again." .

That night I took a vow to myself to prove worthy of your confidence, and I kept it. I treasured it up, and Heaven has added mightily to my little store. I have put the bill in the corner stone of my new house, for it arose alone from that dollar bill. I won't offer to pay you back, for I am 1 afraid, he said smilingly, "the luck would go from me with it- But I'll tell you what I will do; l'li give money and words of trust and encouragement to some other poor wretches as you gave to me." The next day Mrs. Pratlet received from the delivery man at her door, a bundle, which, when she had opened it, revealed to her astonished gaze the most betfutiiul piece of oil-cloth her eyes had ever beheld. This naturally attracted the Squire's atten tion ; and when Mrs. Pratlet toid him ail, he only replied, with sosue emotion ; "you were right, and 1 was wrong." dog. Cold From Bathing, times tli'ergfeat weight of tife prey obliged him to loosen his hold upon it while cir cling at a terrible height over ravine and peak. As it fell, the eagle darted after it, and catching it in his claws, and sinking thirty or forty feet by the , mere impetu osity of his downward flight, he spread his mighty wings. to their widest extent and resumed his circling ascent, with his prey firmly clutched In his strong talons. The Icy Walk. You may have been a passenger on a strc et at a time when some oue picked a half-dollar off the cushion or a dollar-biil ,froM ttj- straw ai4 anxiously inquired f r an owmr. At such a time every man in stinct ively feels- iu his- pockets. Every man feels like saying that he is the lucky part y, but an inward voice somehow - re strains him, and he remembers thatOeorge Washington could not tell a lie. The money is invariably pocketed by the finder, and he is set down iriMhe opinions of his follow-p?ssengers as contemptible and mean. 4 On a Woodward avenue, Detroit, car recently a young man purposely dropped a greenback on the floer, and at a proper moment he picked it up and observed : "Who lost this dollar ?" Every one looked at himr and every myuth watered. "Did any one drop this bill ?" continued the young man as he held up a corner. There was another embarrssing pause. Then a man reached out for it with the re mark: "I dropped it, sir. You are an honest man to return it." "Are you sure you dropped it ?" "1 am. I am not a liar "But you see yeu ," stammered the young man. l, ou give me my money or TU wriug your neck!" iaterrupted the otherp as he reached out for his victim. The young man gave it up. He looked white red and green, and he felt so bad over it that he soon dropped oil the car pnsoned crew a terribly ton? time, they caw the daylight once more break througfe the skylight. The men were then waiat deep in water, and as aoon as the compan ion was clear of water they ruabed oa deck, lien; a scene tf destruction bmC their gate. The mitzen xiaat had bee snapped off by the deck, and with iu aaii and rigging had gone. The mainjail was . rlit into shreds, the boat wa fcooe from us gripes and even tha capstan had baaa carried away. Tbe flawing gear also had gone irom the side and moat of the bul wark and rail had been carried aft aide of the mainmast. Tno topmast had al been carried away, and the boom, which, when the vessel struck had been oa tha starboard sida. was now on the port side, and the starboard channel platea bad all parted. It was thee two facts which first led the crew to suppose that the smack had turned completely oyer, f if the Pro gress had merely been hove down and come up again on th saint side, the star board would all the time have been the lee side, and it is difficult to imagine what would have caused the breaking of the Ire channel plates. There is also another in dication that the vessel had been at one time keel uppermost. . That is that the upper cap from her mainmast had come off and slipped over the stump of the top mast, w hich was still in petition wbcu the vsscl had once more rigbud hcwelf. If any further indications were wanting that the vessel had been completely upside down, it was supplied by the condition of the cabin.

The blood of the guiilotme was the seed of the wars which devastated Europe under him wno died at St. Helena For more than half a century such a celebration was looked upon by the government as a species of treason. But now France is a Republic, with no reason to apprehend a restoration of either the Bourbons, the Orleanists, or the Bonapart ists. The French Republic is hardly less secure than the American Republic The amnesty or the Communists of the siege ot Paris period bespeaks the confidence of the ceededia freeing the smack of water. Ail that night, the vessel having had every stitch of canvas carried away, drove it helplessly before the gale.

This Republic may be called a growth of the wilderness, but the French Republic had to contend against the most disheartening obstacles. It was like trying to raise corn in a city to develop republicanism in old France. It took less than a decade to reach the degree of security in growth here which required nearly a century there. Mr. Paine charged Mr. Burke, and not without reason, with pitying the plumage but forgetting the; dying bird ; so much more. did he sorrow for Marie Antoinette than for the oppressed people); and the world has become accustomed to think more of the horrors of the French Revo lution than of its beneficence.

On hearing this the Swe dish Captain ordered his engines full aooed ahead, and left them lo their fate. In this condition the crew rema'ned until Wednesday morning, when the Hull smack Dart came along, toik the vessel in tow, and supplied the crew withlood. A Watcnpoat.

This may be avoided by doubling a towel to stand on during the bath, and an abundant sponge bath may thus be taken easily without risk. Authorities all agree that cold water is the best of cosmetics, and those who wish for good complexions can emp'oy no better means to that end than the daily bath.

Man Eaters. The woods about fifty English miles from Ha'mro. Finland, are the haunts of a creat number of wolves, which of late have been so audacious as not to le conten ted with tearing cows and sheep, but are now constantly attacking human beings In less than two months eleven children have been carried away and eaten by the beasts. Very recently a little boy, aged 9 years, was overtaken on the high road by a single wolf and dragged into a neighbor ing field. The lad escaped with his life only- by the approach of a stalwart peas ant. Another case of very late occurence, was that of a man who, while driving a sledge, was attacked by a wolf, Ahich pran up from the ground and tore Lis The animals are especially numer thc southern and most populous parrs of the country, where they come down to the very threshohls of the houses; and in some instances children have been carried off under the very eyes of their parents.

In the afternoon the deckhand .had the watch on deck, ana as the vessel was straining - heavily in the high sea that was running he suggested to Captain Harvey that he should pump the vessel out.
