Robbing an Orphan. DoflH momerl-B MelvilllH By hisV introduces™ an £■ bat and r^H story. "Two gera the watery —'^H "After aro*H we were picked "A few days after thisTßH on board were oaptured ana taken to Naples, where all hands were oast into prison. "It was in vain that we, protested oar innocence; we were denied pen, ink and paper, and in faot cut off from the world altogether. "Three years and six months passed away, and one morning an American gentleman who was going through our prison was recognized by Mr. Haywood. "He proved to be an old friend of bis, and through him we obtained cur re lease. "Going first to England for my son, I started for home. "But, alas, I didn't dream that Dene ber, the man whom I believed to be the soul of honor and in whose care I left tbe mansion, would have noted thai. "Thankful I am that I am home at last, for now poor Ettie shall have her rights again." And so I had. Tii many years now ainoe Dr. Mel ville's return, and I am the beloved and honored wife of his ion Walter. My father died when I was 3 yeare old. What a ptetty, ohlldieh little widow mother wail . Only nineteen summers had she seen; her life aoareely oommenoed, and yet what a heavy, aorrowful oross was laid upon her. Mamma's parents died of an epidemic when she was 11 years old; her borne after that was with her uncle. Two years followed and death again left her lonely—her kind uncle slept the last, sad sleep. . Although she was only a child, she was the betrothed wife of Theodore ' Theodore Emery was a noble, hand some man, and lived alone, with the ex ception of his servants, in the large, dreary-looking Emery mansion. When my mother reached her fifteenth year, she was his bride; then followed a ehermiugly-haopy life. A year or dream-like happiness fol lowed, then I was sent to complete their dream of bliss. Alas! had they seen the sad life that was before their darling they would have prayed for Qod to oall me home again. Tnree years of sunshine, aud then a bitter sorrow! It was an early morning in mid-winter Kpa was going across the ice to the vit ro. For a week past the weather had been soft and mild, and mamma thought it dangerous for him to go across the ice. He laughed at her fears, saying the ioe was safe, and he should be home before night. Mamma left the room with him and returned shortly after, laughing through her tears. X s-ing me fondly, she said: "Come, pet, say pretty things and make yonr little mamma forget dear papa is on the ice." Night came and passed, but papa did not return. Tbe next day at noon news came tn enr mansion home that the ioe had broken, and ——oh, bow can I think of it 1 My mother was a widow and I an or phan. When springtime came papa was fonnd in the water, bat the men who took him from his watery grave would not let us look at him; he was bnried with many honors, and the world went on the same as ever. Oh, what a dreary, lonely life poor mother led! No friends were near her —all were strangers, They were as kind at they possibly could be, but the heart when in sorrow or grief yearned for some one who is near and dear—a loving sister or an affectionate mother. It was now five years sinoe father died, and mother took look long walks morning and evening around tho grounds. Sh - was looking better, and a faint rose tint died her pale cheeks, but the sad lock was still on her deep-bine eye and around her lips. Tbe only visitor admitted was Dr. Melville, and his visits were professions!. He was an intelligent and kind man, and often spoke of his motherless son whom he left behind bim in England. Two mere years rolled by and mamma was again a bride. Dr. Melville was my stepfather. What changes followed! Our house soon wore the gay, bright looks of former times; our parlors were again thrown open for company, am mn-io and laughter filled the air. Mamma procured for me a French governess, who was named Mademoiselle Lewis. This lady was very young and pretty, and seemed to be greatly admired by Dr Deneber, a young Englishman, who vis Ited oar house. I cannot paint the happiness of the next two years. The roses in my mother's cheek grew brighter, and there was a quiet, happy look in her eyes; bat, alas! a sad change toon followed. One evening, about two years and six months after her last marriage, I was sitting in the arbor, reading, when . heard the maid calling me thus: "Miss Ettie, come—come! Yonr mam mt has fainted, and the dootor is from home?" In a moment I was by her side; but, ah! I was too late —my beloved one was dead! Without one word I fell motionless to the floor, and seven weeks passed before I again awoke to this world. It was a bright autumn morning, and awakening, as if from a dream, I opened my eyes to see Dr. Mellville sitting be side me. He smiled sadly and said: "Poor Ettie! Thankful am I to Qod that you are spared." "And is it really true? I thought it was but a frightful dream," I whis pered. "Alas, alas, my child, your loss is in deed a reality." In about a month afterward Doctor Mellville placed me in a fashionable boarding school, saying that ach mg» was necessary for both my health ant spirits. One day, about six months after, I was both astonished and pleased to receive i visit from Dootor Melville, but grievet to learn,that he was to leave New York the next morning for England. He mentioned having left his friend, Doctor Deneber, at the maniion; at the time I thought nothing of what he said, bnt a few days after I wondered what he sould have meant. Ia a short time news oame that the ▲da S. was lest; this was tne vessel in whish Dootor Melville bad taken pas sage, and I was shocked to think my last best friend was lost to mo forever. After my school examination had taken place I returned home. I expected only to find the old ser vants at tbe maniion, and, therefore was not prepared for the change which met me on my return. My French governess had married Doctor Deneber, and they were living in the gayest style in my mansion home. Oar servants were all discharged, and strange ones filled their placea. Mrs. Deneber received me on my arri val, saying Doctor Deneber bought the entire property from Dootor Melville be fore his departure, and that my home was no longer here; but if I wished I oould remain with her. This announcement was so startling and unexpected, that all I could do was to hear and believe. 1 remained with Mrs. Deneber, but not as a guest or friend—simply as a servant. Against this my nature rebelled, bal what oould I do? I was only a child* and I knew that Dr. Deneber was the only person who knew anything about my stepfather's transactions. Four years of loneliness, sorrow and hard work dragged by; bat these years were fall of the gayest life and sunshine to Mrs. Deneber. One night I was in the nursery trying to sing the two children to sleep. I fel tired and weary, for all day I had been trimming the parlors aud preparing for the large ball which Mrs. Deneber held In tbe evening. All at onoe there was confusion, and the musio and laughter ceased. Than a veioe which rang through the house and sent a strange feeling to my heart asked: "Vile impostor! where ia tbe child whom you have •• basely robbed?" HERALD, APRIL 5, 1887.

What Southern California Has Demonstrated. In a recent issue of the Record-Union, W. H. Mills, Land Agent for the South ern Pacific Company, publishes the fol lowing interesting communication: "Since the year 1869, the extension of railroad lines into the sparsely settled or wholly uninhabited territories of the United States has opened to sett'ement an area so vast as to distribute 'hinly the great tide of immigration which an nually overflows from the more densely populated portions of this country and Europe. The railroad extension re ferred to, includes not only the four great overland roads extending westward to the Pacific ocean from the Mississippi river, bat also a great number of branch lines. Since tbat period the state of Kansas has received 1,000,000 of inhabitants, Texas 1,000,000, Minnesota 700,000, Da kota 500,000, Nebraska 400,000, Wyo ming 250,000, Washington 80,000, Mon tana 40,000, Arizona 50,000, Colorado 300,000, and California about 200,000. Among all these the growth of Kansas has been the most phenomenal. The reason for this is not far to seek. Kan sas was more accessible than any of tbe Pacific territories, and tbe lands there were cheap. In estimating the obsta cles to the settlement of a distant region tbe cost of reaching tbat region mast occupy a prominent place. It has oost in the past more monoy to remove a body of population aggregating 100,000 men from tbe more densely populated and overflowing sec tions of our oountry to California, than to remove 1,000,000 frem the game sec tions to eastern Kansas and Nebraska. Where vast areas of sparsely settled and uninhabited territory were inviting tbe enterprising pioneers, comparative ad vantages have been very closely scanned. For nearly twenty, five years the intend ing immigrant has had his choice of an almost unlimited variety of climatic, social and commercial conditions. Com paritively, the prices asked for land in California were higher than tbe rates de manded elsewhere west of the Mississippi river. To the superficial view, land in California has reached its maximum in valne. Good agricultural land in north western aad western states is deemed to have reached its highest point at a val ue ef $30 to $50 an aore. Twenty years ago good agricultural land in California reached this stage of development. When, therefore, tbe immigrants had their choice between Texas, Kansas, Nebraska, Colorado, Minnesota and Dakota, where lands were obtainable at from $5 te $10 an acre, as against Cali fornia, when agricultural land was held at from $15 lo $30 an acre, they ohose the former localities,under the somewhat jus tifiable but mistaken belief tbat the lands in California had already reached their full development. Tbey were basing their eetimate of the possible valuation of land upon its capacity for producing grain, wheat, cattle and hoga. They were oblivions of tbe fact that olimate is a controlling factor in the capabilities of the soil. When land is purchased at $10 an acre, which through cultivation and improvement may develop a value of $30 an aore, we bave an enhancement of 300 per cent, of its original price; but where the olimate -limits of a oultare which makes it possible to take land at $30 an acre, and, by devoting it to those pro ductions permitted by the higher possi bilities of climate, make it worth from $300 to $500 per acre, we have a result ant percentage of from 1000 to 2500 per cent, of the purchase price of $30. "Almost at any time within the past twenty years land adapted to viticulture could be bought in this State at from $20 to $30 an acre, where, at the same time, a fully developed bearing vineyard was salable at from $300 t j $500 per acre. What ia true of vine-growing is equally true ef citrus culture, and the experiments in orange-growing in Loa Angeles and San Bernardino counties bave merely demonstrated these truths. More than this, they have familiarized the Eastern mind with the fact that superiority of olimate enlarges tbe range of production, and correspond ingly angmenta the possibilities of development in tbe value of the soil. The rapid influx of Eastern immigra tion into Southern California, and the ready acceptance on the part of tbat immigration of the prioes asked for lands prove conclusively that these great eco nomic facta have at last dawned upon the Eastern mind. Having thus ac cepted the conclusion for which the people of California have rightly con tended for nearly a quarter of a oentnry, the snooess which has attended the ef forts of Southern California to secure a proper and adequate recognition of the value of soils and climate in California when considered together as faotors in production, will rapidly extend to every other portion of California. The values which have attached to the lands suitable for agriculture and horticul ture in Southern California will inevita bly extend to all the land in the State of equal fertility, and lying under equally favorable conditions for the higher and more profitable cultivation made pos sible by the superiority of olimate. Again, it has been demonstrated that California throughout is the most genial, healthful and attractive winter resort in tbe known world. It will, therefore, rapidly supersede Florida, Cuba, Italy aud other places which have served as refuges from the rigor and in hospitalities of northern climates' Southern California, therefore, has de. monttrated a superiority* in soils and climates, and the productive capacities and unlimited resouroes of the State The constantly increasing facilities of communication between the great body of tbe population in this oountry, aggre gating 90,000,000 of inhabitants, resid ing east of the R cky mountains and ths shorei of the Pacific, together with the constantly diminishing cost of oom- HUNT'S V REMEDY/* THE BBST Liver Medicine XKVEB KITOWX TO FAIL.
