H. A. Milton, who under tho name

Farmers National Hank last week by

be taken back to Jackson, Michigan,
Tuesday, a it has been ascertained that
he escaped from the penitentiary there
on the lth of this month. In his valise
were found fetters from his wife and
poorol 1 mother, which showed them to
be people of intelligence nnd maybo of
standing. Milton is probably onu of
those reckless characters who, when out
of monoy, will do desperate acts to ro
supply themselves. Ho does not look
like a regular thief.
One day last week a young woman
giving tho name of 1'muia Craig was bo
foro thu police court on account of a
quarrel she bed had with another wo
man of her class, both being prostitutes.
She was neatly dr"Bcd, pretty and possessed
of manners which showed that
sho hail been reared a lady. It came nut
in tho trial that sho had been living her
present life about four years; that sho
was a native of Garrard county and had
once, for ten months, been a pupil of ono
of tho Danille female colleges. Knima
Craig, sho said, was not her true name.
Sho had been n Danville but n short
tiuiH nnd was nlieltered by n negro wo
man, no white person's housu being
open to tier. Sho was lined $21.-10, and
not having tho money to pay, was sent
to work housu where nho remained until
after dark tho same day; then somo of
her friends, male and female, raised
money enough to pay her fine and sho
was relented. A few years ago n number
of good peoplo of Danville attempted
tho reclamation of several such women
and in some tunes succeeded. Would
the time be idly spent to make a like effort
in behalf of this poor creature?
There is nothing in her appearance or
manners to indicate unmistakably what
sho is. Will she ho given n clianco to
do better?
THE OLD HOMESTEAD.
Ah, licre it it, the dear old place '
Unchanged through nil these years,
How like tome iwccc familiar faco
My childhood's home appears.
The crand old trees behind the door
Sull sptead their blanches wide;
The rircrt wander at of yore,
Willi tuectly running tide;
The distant hills looL green and gray,
The flswcri arc blooming wild,
And everything luoVs glad to-day
As when I was a child.
Regardless how tho )ur have flown.
Hall wondering Inland;
1 no fond, endearing tone,
I clatp no friendly hand;
I think my mother's smile to meet,
I list my father's call,
I pause to hear ny brother's feet
Come bounding through the hall ;
lint nilonco all around mo reigns,
A chill creeps through my heart,
No truce f tlnxe 1 lovu remnin,
And tears unbidden start.
What (hough tho minbcams fall as lair,
What though the budding flowers
Still shed their Irflgranco on the air
Within life's golden hours;
l'ho loving ones that cluttered here
Thcsfl walls may not restore;
Voices that filled my youthful ear
Wilt Erect my soul no more.
And yet I quit the dear old place
With slow and lintreiing tread,
As when we km n clay-cold face
And lcuie it with the dead.

wife, from her own selections,)

Better Than a Ktfco, can Americans
travel on tho F. F. V. (Fast Flying
an). Xo train in Europe or America is
equal to tho F. F. V. in the
completeness of its appointments. Tho
road embraces every luxury and comfort
and may well be held up as a model
for the world. It is the only
train lighted throughout with electricity,
heated with steam and carrying n
dining-car service in the body of tho
train from Cincinnati to New York via
Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia.
The entire train was built by tho
Pullman Co. without regud to cost. The
road-bed of the Chesapeake & Ohio's
Railway is tho finest in America, being
laid with tho heaviest steel tails, ballasted
with etone. Trains run under the
lilock system. Tho entire line is fitted
out with tho latest interlocking system
of switches, while improved curved brae
es nru used from one end to the other.
Tho scenery is grand and varying, the
route being along the banks of the
Ohio nnd Kanawha, through tho
canons of tho New River, along tho
Greenbrier, over the Alleghanies and
Blue Ridge Mountains and through tho
Shenadoah Valley and Virginia battlefields.
No extra charge is made on the
F. F. V. which affords tho most delightful
scrvico from the South to Washington,
Baltimore, Philadelphia and New
York, via either Louisville, Lexingtou or
Cincinnati.
