I asked, ^ sleepily. * She laid her hand on my mouth as she whispered: "Sh! sh 1 don't you J hear that ?" I listened, by that time fully awake, and heard a sound as of some one working at the door. " What shall we do, Aunt Marv i" I said, faintly. She shook her head. There wo were " alone in the house, with the exception r" of John, the hired man, who slept on the n floor fthoVA 11H- finil wlrn miflrlif oa wroll 1 o have been sleeping the sleep that knows 8 no waking for all the good lie could do * us. I grabbed hold of my ancient rela- ' tive and laid still, with my heart beating e wildly. " Oh ! we should be murdered, P I knew we should." I thought of the " silly wish I had expressed that same J1 evening, as I complained of the dull- " ness of my country life, '' that something ? would hajipen to woke us up a little." P Here was the awakening, but such a one! I hid my head under the bedclothes J* while I prayed softly. Then, not daring to lie alone, for my aunt hail left my side, and feeling that it would be better ** to die together, I, too, found my way to r' the floor. With the only weapon she ?' could find?a pair of curling-irons?my 11 late bed-fellow stood shaking behind 81 the door. I crept close beside her, and with a strange feeling of fascination fixed ^ my eyes on the door. Very gently it ^ opened, aud a head made its appearance. Tighter and tighter grew my arms around ^ my companion's waist, but when our 8' lionse-breaker stood before us, eveiy feeling gave place to astonishment. In- J.1 stead.of the hideous face I had expect- ^ ed to meet there came to view the Hlicht " figure and liaudsome face of a mere stripling. My aunt's fear seemed also to have vanished, for stepping boldly up " to him she caught hold of hiru, saying : j1 "Ah, I have you now, my pretty fel- J11 low," at the same time crying for " John. J The captive struggled to free himself, but in vain, for mv aunt held him the * closer while she screamed the louder " for John Very soon he appeared on 111 the spot, where he gazed in amazement 111 on the picture before him, but as his mistress kept saying, " Tie him, John, tie him," lie went for the first thing Bf handy, which happened to be my aunt's 113 long worsted garters. They being strong 01 enough answered every purpose, and " soon onr prisoner stood meekly before ^ us. Then Aunt Mary, looking sternly ? at him, said: "Now, John, take and lock him in the empty room at the top of the stairs, and in the morning we will ? see whether peaceful citizens must be " robbed and murdered in their beds." w I had stood quietly by, taking no part 111 in the programme, and feeling, it must ? bo said, more pity than anger for the 8 handsome youth. Once I met his eyes w fixed earnestly upon me, and as John ? led him from the room mine was the last face they souerlit. After mv aunt had i expended nil the threats she could upon ^ the culprit she fell fast asleep, but though I tried to follow her example I ? did not succeed, for the face of the burglar kept rising before my closed eyes. ** I was only sixteen, and of rather a " romantic turn. I pictured his dark eyes H< filled with penitent tears, and thought " that bitter necessity had perhaps driven u him to this act for wliioli my aunt would n send him to prison on the morrow. No, I could not sleep, so slipping on my ^ dress I crept up the stairs to the door of * the room containing him who was de- ^ frauding mo of my rightful rest. I lis- * tened. All was still ; and I stood hesitating what to do, when I heard a loud 1 ^ sob from within. In an instant I had ' j' the door unlocked. There lay the lad I J,1 on the cold floor, his head on his crossed j arms. Ho lifted hia famr-wflt-fuflft nli f I n how pain it looked an the dim morning I ^ light fell npon it. I am sure my voice was very gentle as I said : w " There, do not weep, but tell me what A has impelled von to such work." 1< "Ah, miss," and his voice was strange- f< ly sweet, "such bitter need as I pray h Heaven yon may never know. This is h my first offense, believe me." u I did believe him, and made up my a mind on the spot to get him away liefore n my aunt should awake. I bade him fol- w low me, and silently we crept down the h stairs and to the front door; then telling a him to wait until I returned, I hastened * back to my room. The sounds that tl issued from the bed told me Aunt Mary k till slept. I took from my small pocketook its contents and hurried back, and ist as I hod left him I found the boy. placed the money I had brought into is hands, then whispered, "Go and in no more." Ho caught my hand, and wliilo hot >ars fell upon it, kissed it. " God less your sweet face, I shall never foret it," ho murmured, then passed own the path and out of my sight. With a warm feeling around my heart went softly back to my bed and was >on fast asleep. It was about eight 'clock when my slumbers were again iterrupted by a shrill voice at my ear rying: "Josie, he lias gone, after all mv ains; it's too bad; all John's fault; I'll ever forgive him, no, never." Poor Johu protested he had fastened le door, but it was 110 use talking, he believed through him she lyid lost er captive, and auut from that day uiuul 4 , > ??? 41 ? MUVU vv> UUI V7 UiiJ VVUUVIUUV.C lil bUU oor fellow. Our sleep after tliat was unbroken, and le years carried me Hafely to my twentieth irthday. I was called a very pretty girl t that time, with a handsome pair of ark eyes and a wealth of golden hair, that, st me confess it here, Iprided myself very lucli on. I liad several admirers among le young gentlemen of the village, but ad never felt any great inclination for liem,and on thataccount had acquired the ame of being rather proud and cold. ?unt Mary, who had not grown younger r better natured in the past four years, redicted my becoming an old maid. As looked at her I felt somewhat frightend, still I could not bring myself to ccept any of the illustrious names fibred. Ours was a pretty little place, and for iie past two years had become quite a i?ort for city people in tho summer lonths. I used to look with envious yes on the pretty, .showy ladies and allant gentlemen that flitted before my ision like gay birds, and who ncted as hough the world was made for their sole njoyment, and after the summer had assed, taking them with it, my foolish eart grew harder and harder towards ly country swains, and stronger the mgiiig to get away from them all, and ut into the world that my only real leaaure was to read about. It was 011 a beautiful afternoon in the itter part of June, that, returning from 10 post-office, I passed the hotel. I say le hotel, for it was the only one the >wu afforded. The stage had just arived, and as I went by a gentleman tepped from it. For an instant I paused lvoluntarily to look at him. He was, I ippose, twenty-two, not more, tall, with 10 handsomest face I had ever seen. I mnd myself blushing deeply as I met ie glance of his dark, earnest eyes, and itli averted face quickly passed him. las! for poor Will May, tliat I met iortly after, and who walked, with mo >wards my home. As the face I had ist seen rose before me more silent did become, shorter my answers to his 110 oubt witty remarks. I was glad to get 3 my own room, where alone I let my iouglits rest uninterrupted on the andsome stanger. Not long was I perlitted to do so, lor my aunt called me 3 make biscuits for tea. I went down; etter for ali had I remained where I 'as. I do not know as I was in love, >r the honor of my sex I hope not, but must have been blind, for instead of ie white sugar I should have taken I sed salt. Heavens! I see to this day ly aunt's face as she tasted one. A week went by, and though I had eard the stranger's name, I had not sen him, save in the dreams that visited ie nightly. Several of the girls calling a me had spoken of the handsome geueman stopping at the Lion, and sighed > think he was beyond their reach, [ow I hated my life at that period, with s same dreary routine. The sound of iy aunt's voice as she called me at six clock in the morning, " Josephine ! osephine! going to sleep all tlayf" ould dispel the castles I was building ad send me back to the endless makincr f bread and cake. How I longed to et away from the sowing slio had slays ready for the long afternoons, and at into the woods and fields ! We were going to luive a picnic, and be gnesta of #the hotel were to favor us nth their society. All was excitement, )r it was not often we had the pleasure f being in the company of gentlemen rho wore their hair parted in the middlo ud called us deuced pretty girls. The ay came. Don't think me vain, reader, ' I tell you that I looked lovely. It is ime years ago, and I could see that I id, by the whispering among the girls d by the envious glances they cast at le, also by some tender ones I received om the opposite sex. We were at our rst dance when the gentlemen from the jion arrived. I felt my heart beat uickly, as I saw among them Edwin iing, for so my stranger was (Milled, 'ruly a king in manly beauty, I thought, s I looked at his tall, graceful form, nto the strangely handsome face. As e saw me his eyes lit up, and coming orward he begged my hand for the exi nance. 4 assure you, gentle reader, bat I did nop refuse. Very happily passed the day, and I ran sorry when Aunt Mary called me. lS Mr. King led mo to her I thought he xrked rather strangely at her, but soon >rgot all else in tho pleasure of having ini at my side as we walked slowly ome through the scented fields. My ew friend did not forget me, and hardly day wont by without bringing him to ly side. Even iny aunt seemed pleased nth him, and spoke in warmest terms of is gentlemanly bearing. One evening, h ! how it comes back to me, as we rere sitting in the parlor, unlit, save by be soft moonlight, Edwin said, after a >ng silence; " Josie, I have a little story I wish to tell you, will you listen ?" I whispered a faint "yes," so taking in his the hands lying idly in my lap, he went on: "Once on a time, a bov,friendless and alone, came one cold night to a village. He had been trying for weeks to find work, but mot not one who cared to give him even a kind word, so, faint and weary, he came to this village I speak of. I do not know what devil tempted him, but he crept into a farm-house, having \ but one thought and that was to obtain I food, which he failed in getting, for he was caught and fastened into a room to wait until morning, when he would be falroil nriann ' m i'un *hi ltla ntol wuuvu ws ^'Iiovrii. xw (luiu uiiu hopeless to speak in his own defense, he laid weeping on the hard floor when the door was opened and a young girl with tender, pitying face stood before him. In her soft, low voice she bid him weep 110 more but to follow her and she would set him free. Noiselessly they crept down the stairs, out into the silent night, then telling him to wait au instant, this boy's good angel left him, but soon returned with money, which she gave him, bidding him 4 go Bin no more.' Shall I tell of the prayer that went up to Heaven, of the vow this boy took, of five years later, where he had become a man, how ho returned to that village, hoping to fiud tho girl who had never been forgotten, how he did find her, fairer, sweeter even than on that night when she saved him ? Shall I tell, Josie, how he knelt at her feet praying her to be his own ? How he waited with fast beating heart for her answer, knowing if she failed him the home lie had striven so hard to win for her dear soke, his very life, would be worthless ?" My king was on his knees before me as he ceased speaking. I bowed down my head until it rested on his breast, and he was answered. The Old Black Silk. Our grandmothers thought they knew all about the economies in their day and generation, but they were vastly beliiud the present age. A sharp-witted girl who likes to look nice, and yet has a scant purse to draw from, could teach her frugal grandmother a lesson that would make her open her eyes in wonder. Silk was silk in those days, and a silk dress was an honest garment, fit for the closest inspection from head to foot. It does not do to inquire too closely into the make-up of much that we see prom enading the streets, and looking very handsome, now-a-days. Still it is handy to have the knack of making over an old dress into something very presentable, 1 without a great outlay. Two good hea Is, and two pairs of nimble fingers, recently 1 made over a black silk in a way tlxat ' may give a hint to somebody else. First, the old garment, which was scant and plain, and darned in many places, was carefully ripped apart. Then it was sconced in water in which an old kid glove liad been steeped, then ironed on the wrong side, and it was found to be as stiff as new. Now the old black silk bag was brought out, and the mucilage bottle. The tiny holes and thin places were gummed over, and a little patch of black silk placed on the under side, and ironed smoothly. There was scarcely a trace left on these worn I out places. I wonder what our grand| mothers would havo thought of such ! patching ! The old waist pieces were turned and basted to the waist portions of a polonaise lining, piecing them where it was needful. Then the polonaise skirt was cut out of the best breatlis of the skirt, joining it to the waist pieces very neatlv, closing the polonaise in front. The old sleeves cut the lower lialf of new sleeves by judicious piecing, and the upper sides come from the skirt. The polonaise was a success, and there were still pieces enough leit to flounce an old i alpaca skirt cut scant according to fash- | urn, mm ii puuu Bvnj) 01 HUK aDOVe me flounce came well up under the polonaise. There wore scraps enough to ruffle this upper garment on tho edge, and to trim waist and sleeves so as to hide the piecings. When all was done, it was a very respectable dress, and especially in tho evening would pass almost for new. It is always a good rule to save the pieces, as long as a dress is in existence. Even some scrap may bo just what you will need to piece out a corner. Old black silk and alpaca always come useful. Even the smallest pieces of alpaca are worth saving to cover for cording which is just now in order as trimming. A little bias band of black alpaca often answers in place of more expensive trimming, and brightens up a little girl's dress of blue, or red, or plaid. An old alpaca dress can be vastly improved by ripping apart, sponging with coffee, ironing and making over after a good pattern. An Indian Story. A gentleman of Hioux City, who is just back from a trip up the river, gives the particulars of a rather extraordinary case of experience in the last awful storm. | An Indian and his squaw were caught out in the storm while journeying from Fort Randall to the Fort Thompson agency, and becoming bewildered, took refuge in a small ravine. They wrapped their blankets about them and sat down I under the bank. The snow soon covered them, but tho Indian kept a hole j through tho rapidly-forming drift with , his gun, which he would poke up occa! sionally. They remained there all night, ; and tho drift bccnmo so high in the i meantime that ho was obliged to splice the ramrod to tho end of his rifle in order to roach to the top and keep up ventila; tion. During their choerless imprisonment the squaw was delivered of a child I and it was christened " Snow Drift." Saved by a Spider. The following singular escape from death of Noah Hopkins is related by his descendants, who vouch for the accuracy of the incident: Mr. Hopkins, over one hundred years ago, resided in Dutches county, N. Y. After disposing of his property he joined tho Susquehanna Company and went to live in the far-famed Wyoming valley, 1'a. The Indians from the lakes became very troublesome and continued to roam in bands through the white settlements, ravaging their stocks and crops. One night a sudden and unexpected attack was made upon the settlement by a large band of infuriated savages, ami the settlers fled for their lives into the woods and mountains. Tho Indians pursued them?their war-whoops falling upon the ears of tho defenseless whites like the cries of wild beasts in search of prey. After roaming about in the darkness for somo hours Mr. Hopkins stumbled over a largo log that lay across his pathway, and finding it hollow crept into it. Here he laid for Beveral hours. The suu had arisen and he was debating U'lwvflinr 1>A lind Knlfnr lno march over the mountains, when he heard the footsteps of his pursuers near by and their subdued but animated conversation. He felt that his doom was sealed and the cold sweat oozed from hit body and brow. Weary with their long search, the Indians sat down on the verj log in which Mr. Hopkins was concealed, while their eyes peered hither and thither, hoping to catch a sight ol some poor fugitive. Mr. Hopkins heard the bullets rattle in their pouches, and gathered from their broken savage tongue, intermixed with English words, thh intelligence that some of his friends and neighbors had been captured and slaiu. It was a moment of fearful anxiety. Some of the Indians walked around to the end of the log, and seeing that it was hollow stopped down and looked in. Their companions were call ed and they all gathered around like hounds -with their game holed, as il ready to shoot the moment it emerged. The Indians seemed to be holding a brief consultation. Mr. Hopkins was just on the point of surrendering himself and begging for mercy on the ground of his many kind act-n in formei times to the Indians, when Iris aitentior was arrested by a large spider, which was busily engaged wcaviug a large and beautiful web right over the entrance. He threw his threads from side to side with great rapidity, so that when the Indians came to look in they, too, seemed to notice this aerial work, and supposed, of course, no one could be concealed within. Soon after they disappeared. After remaining in thii cramped retreat as long as he could endure he came out and wandered for manj [lays in the wilderness, subsisting or nothing but the carcass of a putrid turkey which he found dead. His clothing torn into shreds, his body lacerated, lit came once more upon the dwellings oi white men. The l'ort-au-Prince Fire. One-third of the entire city of Portau-Prince was destroyed by the late tire four hundred houses have beeu con sumed, aDd the loss to property is estimated at $2,000,000. The lire origi nated near the "North Gate," spread it an easterly direction to the Croix del Bossales, and extended to the quay aiu: the vicinity of Bel Air, where it was stopped. The property was chieflj owned by foreign residents, compose!] of Englishmen, Hollanders, Germans, Frenchmen, and a few Americans, ami was insured in companies in Europear cities, mostly in Amsterdam, Holland, where the loss falls very heavily. Nc American companies lost anything by th< lire. The portion of the city which waf destroyed was composed of very oli houses, some of which were built at tin time of the first settlement, three hun dred years ago, and were, for the mosl part, low framo buildings of little in trinsic value, occupied in the lower pari as stores and above as dwellings.

An The Unfortunate Wife of .Mnxlinilinn, Once tile lo Kmperor ol' .Mexico. COUllt Tlio Belgian papers announce that the death of the unhappy Carlotta, tlie 1U? wife of Maximilian, ouco emperor of 1' e Mexico, is daily expected. During the A r last years of her eventful life the soui- t? ber darkness of mental night has rested "lac upon her, and even the consolation of you 1 forgetting in insanity liar misfortunes of uej has been denied her. The light of this failed world's pleasures, though not the gloom Pie of its pains, long since went out for ty art her, and that she should not follow her boy i brave and unfortunate husband to the tions grave may bo regarded as the only hap- they piness which the future had in store for recoil lier, and as a grateful relief to the royal Bostc hearts who have watched over her deso- Qn late years with constant and loving ten- validi derness. The daughter of Leopold I., 1868 i of Belgium, tlio wisest and shrowdest telloc sovereign of his time, blessed with tiro f beauty and a superior mind, graced with fc the accomplishments of courts and the to a i polish of letters, it was Carlotta's destiny to be united at a very early age to rei)ej, tlio most amiable and able of the Ans- corr,,' trian archdukes. Maximilian was dis- ot i.* .v _ l e i i f '? imguisueu. ior ms virtues, ms courage, any ( liis courtly bearing and the liberal tone w-^ [ of his thoughts and feelings. At the uny ; time of the marriage 110 more brilliant < ,?*, i' prospect than the luxurious life of on emperor's brother and sister opened be- . ^ fore them. Maximilian thought of no , nc.e loftier destiny than to form one of the j . ' princely galaxy around Francis Joseph's 1 throne, to govern a Slavic or Croat prov- J*1 ? 1 iuce, perhaps lend his sword to the glory irre ' of Austria, or to spend happy summer ? 1 months with his lovely bride at his eas- J0" ; tie of Miramar, on tho Adriatic. No | graver danger than that of a European f?w ' war or local insurrection threatened Hanl< ; to interrupt a tranquil and contented i 1 life. maxii The ambitious projects of Napoleon eharg ; suddenly intruded upon the even tenor steali of this calm existence. The conquest of 1? S1X [Mexico by Bazaine and the necessity of If 1 1 iinding a wearer of royal blood for the off ir 1 new imperial crown, caused Louis to tenth cast his eyes over Europe for tho avail- its te [ able candidate, and he fixed upon Maxi- of th milieu as the prince best fitted for his and e 1 purpose. The Archduchess Sophia ture s [ urged him to decline the bauble. Cnr- albur lottotu, with all the enthusiasm of youth tissue and ambition, begged him to accept it. 1 To her Maximilian unfortunately yield- t,wo 8 1 ed; he went to Mexico, accompanied by rtntj r his dauntless and exulting wife, and tired bravely nerved himself to meet the perils ftttacl ' of his new position. These perils were Moza not fanciful; the long conflict between BlllVei ! the virtually usurping emperor and the Theti ' persistent Juarez is well known. Its u,e i tragic termination, in which the gallant ,, j 1 Austrian went calmly to the fate of Charles of England and Louis of France ? r | is one of the most thrilling episodes in . . history. Carlotta stood stmiclily l>y her re,aJ.1 husband from lirst to Inst. When his 11 ^ cause waned and bid ore long to be des- !l ou, jierate, this heroic woman hastened to 10^e Europe, fell at Napoleon's feet, and begged him to go to the rescue. Stung c} 1 \ by the refusal of the one who had lured ^ * ' Maximilian across the ocean, the unfor- "on ' tunate princess broke into wild impre- weeki cations. From St. Cloud she hastened a ^ftr to Rome, only to learn at the Vatican that it was hopeless. Desperate with ^I disappointment, C'arlotta wandered over ftVer? Europe, pleading with Francis Joseph stand at Vienna, mourning with her brother " no in Brussels. Then the bright though It i weary intellect began to fade. She sank dauli into alternate idiocy and madness; and twel\ while in this diseased fancy she was sliap< fighting the battle over and over again in may i the quiet retirement of Lacken, Maxi- now i miiiau was shot at Queretaro. ions, The 1 What a Hoax Did.
