Ali was gayety and bustle at that de
servedly admired and popular spa,
Chaudfontaine, a t-pot more highly gift
ed by nature than any other in Belgium.
The unusual circumstance of a marriage
having taken place there, to the great
amusement and satisfaction of the vis
itors and immediate neighborhood and
the real joy of the parties concerned,
filled the persons congregated on the oc
casion with perfect ecstaey.
Jules Duvivier, a subaltern in the
French lancers, had left his division of
the army in Spain, having received a
eevt.re wound at the battle of Salaman
ca, which compelled him for a time, by
the advise of his medical attendants, to
seek th .' reviving air of his native hills,
tit tinted tu the vicinity of Liege. Ar
rived here, he quickly recovered, and
had already made up his mind to leave
the neighborhood of Chaudfontaine,
when he accidentally met Mile. Hallicre,
a Swiss by birth, who was here enjoying
at once the pleasures of society and the
advantages derived from the admirable
waters of the place.
To those who have frequented water
ing-places it will be unnecessary to
dilate upon the ease with which mere
acquaintances grow into intimacies
Thrown continually in each other's so
ciety, free from the restraint of city life,
aulmiring beautiful scenery together, the
lx'st feelings of their nature expanding
with the clear blue sky above them, can
we wonder at the circumstance or blame
the young lancer for falling violently,
passionately in love with the fascinating
Marie de Ilalliere?
To account for this, to reason on it, is
unnecessary. Suffice it to say that Jules
liecame desperately enamored of the
lovely girl, and in less than three weeks
found his suit not only approved but his
hand accepted. Mile, de Ilalliere had
no one to consult ; no kind, affectionate
father, uncle or guardian to thwart her
wishes. An orphan for many years, liv
jug on a limited but independent patri
moiiv. derived, as she asserted, from a
Finall estate left to her by her father.sie

Urinative to the warm solicitations of our
hero (for Jules was a hero) to become
During their courtship, if the pointed
and loverlike attentions of a youth to a
young lady during fifteen days may be
so-called, there were many who strove
their utmost to mar the match. A pru-
dent dowager, a marchioness without a
single sou, her only riches consisting ol
six ugly daughters, had whispered her
advice to the lancer to find out first
"who and what the young lady was be
fore he compromised himself."
Another female a rival belle, I be
lieveingeniously hinted that "Mile
Ililliere always wore high gowns to hide
the marks of a certain royal disorder,
to cure which she had doubtless sought
the Spa." Another, a rejected suitor,
swore "she was a widow, and that her I
name was assumed." But Jules laughed
at these remarks, and only loved her the
better for the envy she excited. It is
true, he sometimes wished she would
siwak of her past life in less ambisuous
terms, and as irequentiy lie determined
to question her on it ; but when they met
that thought was forgotten, and, with
truth and innocence beaming out of her
countenance, the young soldier felt it
would le blasphemy to doubt her.
The result need scarcely be told ; the
morning on which this sketch opens be
held Marie the bride, the beauteous
bride, of the proud Jules.who, after par-
taking of a sumptuous breakfast, given
by him to a large party oi congratulating
friends, started off in high spirits ior tne
chateau of his old uncle, situated near
Bruges, determined to linger some few
davs on the road, and thus enjoy, in
loviug selfishness, the uninterrupted
society of her whose very life he lelt
himself to be.
At about 12 o'clock on the fifth day
ihe young newly married couple arrived
at Bruges, having hurried past the many
objects of interest which presented wrote to me in all the triumph of an ac
thei selves on their journey, in conse- cepted lover."
qmpr.ee of most earnest solicitations to " I can hot really see what this has to
jom their good old relative, whose
hanome seat was at no great distance
from the capital of Western Flanders,
Here they halted at the principal hotel,
intending after dinner to set out for the
residence of their uncle. To save time
and trouble they Joined the table d'hote,
which here, as throughout Flanders,
takes place at 1 o'clock. By the time, I
therefore, that the lady had performed
Ihose little " agrcmens de tailcU.e" in-
cidental to an appearance before Strang-
ers, the great bell sounded, and, as Jules
handed down his lovely bride, the
already loud clattering of forks and
spoons bespoke the fact that the sub-
stantial meal was already begun.
On entering the room they found
about forty persons seated, all greedily
employed in devouring their soup,
scarcely deieminff to look towards the
strangers who came in. In France,
tler similar circumstances, a dozen
gentlemen would nave risen to offer
their seats to the lady. In Belgium,
however, the case is different - and each
honest burgher eats his meal, scram-
bling both for the best seat and dantiest
dit-h, without the slightest attention
either to rank or sex.
It was an unfortunate circumstance
for the loving pair to be divided thus
earlv in their honevmoon, but ou the
present occasion they were compelled to
be. Two chairs alone stood unoccu-
pied, and these were far apart, while, if
TosMl)le to make the separation more
disagreeable, they happened to be on
the same side of the table, so that not
even an interchange of glances could
take place, no word pass, save for the
lienofit fif few Ktnniif interveninor cit-
izens a benefit which neither party
was anxious to confer upon them.
As strangers, therefore, they sat down
to tabic, consoling themselves with the
confident assurance that their separa
tion could not continue above an hour,
and that then a thousand extra caresses
might make up their lost portion of
"love's sweet interchange." Poor
Jules, however, was far too much ena-mored-to
sit down philosophically and
enjoy his meal with appetite. His eyes
roved about him till they fixed, in some
astonishment, on his opposite neighbor,
who, having coolly laid down his knife
and fork, sat anxiously gazing at Marie.
At first Jules thought it might be acci-
dent : some casual resemblance might
have struck him: staring might be his
habit, and the next minute his reirard
mio-htfall upon another. But no; his
eyes remained riveted on "la belle Ma-

Every man is jealous. I do not be
lieve any one who says he is not so ; nor
will I assert that some qualms of this
kind did not now arise in the breast of
the lancer, who could not help suppos
ing, from the continued gaze of his op
posite neighbor, that he must have been
a former friend, a flirt, a lover. The
idea was distracting. Jules determined
at t;nce to put an end to his doubts ; so,
bending across the table, after some
preliminary observation to his staring
neighbor, he observed, with as much
nonchalance as he could possibly
" You appear to know the lady P"
"I think," replied the other in a
grave tone, " nay, I am sure I do," and
then turned the subject
This was any thing but satisfactory to
the young soldier, for again the eyes of
the stranger were fixed upon his bnde
There is nothing more provoking than
a limited answer to a question oy
which we have previously determined
to elicit a full explanation. There is
nothing so painful as half-grounded sus
picion. Jules found it intolerable, and
consequently' pressed his inquiry
"Are vou quite certain you have
seen this lady before?"
" As confident as that I now breathe.
I nevet forget a face I have once beheld.
It is she, I am sure ; I can not be mis
taken." "That's very strange! Where did
you know her?" And the questioner felt
that his happiness depended on the an
" Thank fiod, I never knew her!
ouicklv replied the stranger, with a
This was indeed a perplexing answer,
The husband scarcely knew in what
li-ht to regard it. It is true it relieved
hini at once from all jealousy ; but then,
again, it implied a mystery, and, from
the stranger's manner, evidently a
dreadful one. What could it mean? He
determined to venture one more ques
'My question seems to call up some
nnDleasant recollection. Will you ex
If vou particularly wish it, I will,
although I confess I would rather drop
the subject. At all events, I would not
wisii to do so while she is present."
With this reply poor Jules was forced
to remain content, though he felt that
the ract itself would bring less torture
than tne o-0nies of suspense. Presently,
his relief, the well satisfied
party began to break up. One by one
tne plethoric burghers left the room; but
Marie stirred not. Jules watched his
opportunity to give her, unseen, a si
nel to retire. Thus she did ; and in less
! than a quarter of an hour more the
lancer and the citizen alone remained
" Now, then, sir," said the former,
abruptly turning round, "your promis-
ed explanation." .
The stranger paused ere he replied,
"I am perhaps wrong in thus satisfying
the curiosity of one whom I never saw
before, and more particularly so when I
t,.i vou that the anecdote I am about to
relate involves most deeply the charac-
inr ,.f the nnhannv female who has iust
left the table."
The stroke of death would have been
less agonizing than such an answer.
Jules's brain seemed to burn like molten
lead. He could scarely repress his agi
tation as he asked, with an almost sar
donic sneer, "You were, perhaps, that
God forbid!" solemnly ejaculated
the bursrher. "Mv tale is not of love,

friend in Victor Rossaert. From youth
brought up together, our mutual confi-
dence was unbounded. Unfortunately,
,ctor found it necessary, for the ar-
rangement of some mercantile affairs,
to visit Geneva. Here, it appears, he
met a merchant's daughter, Adelaide
Moran, whose charming manners and
lovely appearance soon won the heart
of the enthusiastic young man, and he

now," impatiently interrupted Jules,
f r It has every thing to do with her.
Listen and you will agree with me. Vic-
tor, by a mere accident arising out of
the jealousy of one of the lady's suitors,
learnt that she whom he thought so in-
nocent, so good, had, long ere she had
seen my friend, forfeited her reputation
There was madness in the thought, des-
pair in future life, but honor demanded
the sacrifice ; and the broken-hearted
young man, in a letter addressed to her
whom he could not but still lore, de-
clared his knowledge of her guilt and
his resolution never again to see her.
This letter written, he instantly started
off to join his friends at Dijon. . To this
spot she followed him, and having vain-
ly for some weeks supplicated, urged
and threatened him, with a view of
making him marry, her, she seemed sud
denly to relinquish her purpose, and
entreated but to oe nis inena. as sucn
for several weeks she visited him. His
health gradually declined. In vain she
tried to cheer him. He hourly sank ;
and, feeling death fast stealing on him,
he wrote me. I started off soon after the
receipt of his letter ; but it was, alas,
too late. When I arrived my much
loved friend had been consigned to the
tomb, but not betore a post-mortem ex-
amination had taken place, from which
it appeared he died from a slow, subtle
poison. Suspicion immediately fell on
Adelaide Moran ; she was seized and in
terrogated, but she would neither confess
or deny. Circumstances were scarcely
sufficiently strong to justify a trial for
murder. She was therefore Drought
before the Court for the minor
offense, namely, that of forg
ing a will, by which it "would
appear he left her all his property. On
this charge she was tried and convicted.
Mitigating circumstances, however,
were urged, to save her from the gal
leys ; and she was only condemned to
stand in the pillory and be branded on
the right shoulder. This sentence was
to be carried into effect the very morn
ing of my arrival at Dijon. Impressed
with horror, I attended near the scaf
fold. The lovely but wicked woman
was brought forth. Never can I forget
that sorrowful face. Deeply imprinted
on my memory, it can never be effaced.
Judge, then, my surprise when I beheld
that very woman, that identical iemaie,
the person who destroyed my inena,
this day seated in yonder chair!
Jules started up. His eyes dilated
with horror; he approached the narra-
tor. "1011 are miSUlKeu oy nil avci-
dental likeness ; that lady's name is not
Moran, or Adelaide. Say you are mis
taken, er the consequences may be
" By the high heaven above, I speak
the truth. But why this agitation?"
" Stay, stay but five minutes, and you
shall learn the cause."
And Jules Duvivier rushed from the
room, leaving the woriny citizen to
wonder at the interest he took in one
certainly very beautiful 'but depraved
The time mentioned by the anxious
bridegroom had nearly elapsed, when
the communicative citizen was summon'
ed to the apartment of the soldier. Un
hesitatingly he obeyed the summons
and entered with cool indifference into
the saloon, where he found the now al
most convulsed youth, who pointed to a
chair; then advancing to the door in
stantly locked it and placed the key in
his pocket. Such strange conduct
naturally made the burgher look about
him. On the table lay some objects
covered with a handkerchief; a sheet of
recently written paper, and other things
of minor importance. A door opposite
led from the saloon apparently to an in
ner bedroom; but this was closed.
There was nothing, therefore, save the
strange manner of the occupant to as
tonish or alarm the visitor.
For a moment Jules seemed to collect
his coolness, then calmly spoke, at the
same time lifting up the handkerchief
and discovering beneath a pair of richly
" Sir, you have now entered on your
death scene or mine. The person of
whom you spoke to-day is my wife. If
you have dared to assert a falsehood to
me ; if you have coupled an innocent
name with foul dishonor, by all the
powers or heaven, jou die, and that
without further shrift. If" and the
young man's voice became almost dread-
f ul to listen to" if, I say, you have
spoken the truth, I pledge you my sal
vation you are saf. Speak not ; answer
me not. A moment more, and herself
decides the fact."
Thus saying, Duvivier walked to the
inner door, opened it, and led forth his
bride, who seemed much surprised at
the abrupt manner of her husband.
"Madam, I desire you instantly to
strip off all covering from your shoul-
The poor girl, thus taken by surprise,
perhaps conscious of her guilt, perhaps
overcome by modest .scruples, unwilling
thus to unrobe before a stranger, aston-
ished at the harshness of him who only
a few hours before had sworn eternal
love to her, hesitated and attempted to

almost shouted Jules.
" I beseech you, what does this con
duct mean? Nay, on my knees."
" Do you then shrink? I will prove
or falsify the damned suspicion." He
flew upon her with tiger-like avidity,
and tore off her upper garments till her
shoulders were without covering
One glance was sunicient,
Plain and palpable the horrid brand
I appeared confessed. The executioner's
iron had seared the marble flesh and
left the damninar reminiscences of the
harrowing crime forever behind.
Jules now summoned all his fortitude,
He took out the key and threw it to the
" Begone ! lest madness make me close
your lips forever. It were better, per-
haps, to prevent their repeating this tale
of shame and dishonor. But no; I have
pledged myself to let you go unharmed
and I will not breafc my word, uo
unless you wish to see me do a deed of
stern and cruel justice
It needed no further persuasion to in
duce the citizen to leave the room
He hastily rushed down stairs to sum
mon aid. He had reached the last step
when he heard the report of a pistol
Before he could call assistance a second
weapon was discharged and a heavy fall
shook the stairs on which he stood. At
once he was surrounded by a crowd of
inquisitive persons, desirous of learning
the meaning of these sounds. By signs
alone he could reply. They therefore
one and all rushed up, forced open the
door, and there, indeed, beheld a sight
of horror. Duvivier had shot his wife
through the heart. Her warm blood
Still flowed from her breast. Pity could
not refuse a tear, however guilty tne
victim might have been. Not so the de
stroyer, he had placed the pistol in his
mouth and had blown away the upper
part of his head. Horror and disgust
overcame the beholder as he looked
upon the dreadfully disfigured remains
of the stern executioner of the woman
he had loved so well.
Such is the brief story of those whose
real names have been concealed. The
poor man who by an unguarded observa-
tion caused the dreadful catastrophe has
never since held up his head. What
makes the story more distressing is that
circumstances have since come to light
which have proved that Victor destroy-
ed himself in consequence of remorse at
having unjustly suspected Adelaide
Moran, who consequently died innocent
of all crime, after undergoing the most
dreadful degradation; her only faut
having been a want of candor towards
her husband, a concealment towards
one who should have shared her every
thought. Such concealments, I have
often remarked, have brought years of
misery to those who have foolishly per
sisted in them.
Youne Girl Murdered In
France by a School-Boy.
During the past two years, says a
Paris letter, we have had three shocking
murders by school-boys, and in each
case a morbid disposition was apparent,
and an intellectual condition which left
no room for doubt that the mind was
affected. What shall we do with such
persons? They can not be let loose to
commit other crimes, nor can we cut off
their beads. The reform school, or
maison de detention does not seem to be
sufficient. Illustrative of this idea we
have a case just reported from Angou-
leme. One day last month a young girl
of 18, a domestic in the house of frof.
Fraiche, was seen running through the
street streaming wjth blood, and in a
state of terror that is indescribable.
When stopped she cried that her young
master had stabbed her; turned round
two or three times, staggered for an in
stant and fell dead in the street. At
that moment the son of M. Fraiche,
Professor in the College of Angouleme,
came up and looked upon the scene with
the rest. When told what Aimee Laca-
ton had said, young Fraiche replied
that he must have been crazy, but at any
rate Aimee had nothing more than what
she merited. Moreover, he had prom-
ised to kill her some time ago. When
nrrpsted the boy gave way to the most
violent symptoms of despair. He said at last, and the great danger
that he was in the study trying to com- was averted. A hundred yards or so be
pose some Latin verses when Lacaton yond the curve the high bank at the
came in and began to Drusn up
brush up the
hearth. He went into his father's room
and took a dagger, and, coming back,
plunged it twice into the girl's back as
she was yet bending over the hearth.
He had then tried to stab himself, but it
had hurt him, and he could not give the
second blow. He had, in fact, a slight
prick in the breast. In prison this boy
became rational enough, and appreci
ated the gravity of his act. He is 15
rears old. weak, rickety, almost de
formed, and aftlicted by a complication
of misfortunes. His forehead projects
in a most astonishing way, his head
seems twice too large for his body, and
he is so wpiint-eyed that he has to put a
book close to his nose in order to read.
On hearing the case the jury acquitted
him on the ground of moral irresponsi
bility, but exercising the discretion al
lowed in such cases, the Judge ordered

A Brave Woman and a Poltroon.
A thrilling incident occurred on the
stage route between Ellenville, Ulster
County, and Summitville, on the New
York and Oswego Midland Railway, on
Friday afternoon last, when the courage
and extraordinary nerve ol a woman
saved the lives of herself and her two
children. Just this side' of Ellenville
there is a long and deep declivity in this
road, known as Budd's Hill. The Sum-
mitville stage had just begun the descent
of the hill when the pole of the stage
slipped through the neck-yoke and let
the vehicle, with considerable force,
against the horses. They began plung
ing and running, and the driver, a strong
fellow named Lord, instead of puttm
on the brakes and stopping the stage, as
he might have done, became frightened,
threw down the reins and jumped from
his seat to the ground, and was thrown
violently several feet down an embank
ment. Another man who sat on the seat
with him jumped also, and was thrown
down the bank. The other passengers
in the stage were Mrs. Hollingsworth
and her two small children. As soon
as the horses were free from ' the
restraint of a driver they dashed furi
ously down the hill, threatening mo
mentary death to the inmates of the
coach. Mrs. Hollingsworth saw that
they must meet with certain destruction
at a sharp curve there was in the hill
some distance ahead, unless the horses
could be checked in some way. Her
children were clinging to her and
screaming in terror, but she hastily tore
herself away from them and clambered
over the three seats that were between
her and the driver's. On reaching that
seat she saw with horror that the reins
were trailing in the road and out of her
reach. Her extraordinary presence of
mind and courage never forsook her,
however, for she climbed over the dash
board to the whifflle-tree, and thence
walked along the pole of the stage be-
ween the plunging horses, until she
could reach the reins as they lay on
their backs. Securing them, she made
her way back to the drivers 's seat, and
put forth all her strength in attempting
to get some control over the team. She
succeeded far enough to prevent the
capsizing of the coach at the curve. She
pulled the horses close to the upper side
of the road, and as Mr. Tallman, an
eye-witness of the scene, says, the coach
went around the turn with two wheels
off the ground, and ran in that position
fo' some distance, but it righted
lawn side eased off in a gentler slope.
Here Mrs. Hollingsworth succeeded in
turning the horses and ran them into a
fence. They could not "get another
start, and several men who had seen the
runaway were soon on the spot and se
cured them. They found Mrs. Hollings
worth with the reins still wrapped about
her hands, but she was as pale as death,
and unconscious, bhe had pulled so
hard in the struggle that the reins had
cut great gashes in her hands, and were
almost buried in the flesh. The blood
flowed from these cuts in streams. The
children were clasped in each other's
arms in one corner of the stage, and so
terrified that they were unable to speak
for some time. They and their cour
ageous mother were taken to a house
near by, where they all soon recovered
Mrs.Hollingsworth suffered no more se
rious consequences from her terrible ad
venture than the injury to her hand.
She was able to proceed on her journey
in a short time. The driver and his
companion in cowardice were both badly
hurt. They were received with shouts
of derision and great indignation when
they were found, however, arid received
sympathy in no quarter. Lord is an ex
perienced driver, and his cowardly ac
tion on this occasion is inexplicable.

The Value of a Dollar.
A silver dollar represents a day's work
for the laborer. It is given to a boy.
He has no idea what it has cost or what
it is worth. He would be as likely to
give a dollar as a dime for a top or any
other toy. But if the boy has learned
to earn the dimes and dollars by the
sweat of his face, he knows the differ
ence. Hard work is to him a measure
of values that can never be rubbed out
of his mind. Let him learn by experi
ence that a hundred dollars represents
a hundred weary days labor, and it
seems a great sum of money ; a thou
sand dollars is a fortune, and ten thou
sand is almost inconceivable, for it is
far more than he ever'expects to possess.
When he has earned a dollar he thinks
twice before he spends it. He wants to

Kirby, of Ottawa, were traveling in a
canoe on the Lpper Ijatineau last weea,
an occurrence took place which might
have had disastrous consequences for
them. They had just rounded a point
when they found themselves confronted
by a huge moose, who, with two young
ones, was playing ii the water. Instead
of taking to the bush, as it was expected
she would, the animal made at once for
the canoe, and attacked it with great
fury. Mr. Kirby broke his paddle over
the immense head of the brute, ana Air
Flatters cut off her foot with an ax ; but
this only seemed to make her more sav-

Mr. George Fisher, clerk of the First
National Bank, in Mahoney, Pa., and
22 years of age, was bitten on the outer
edge of the left hand seven months ago
by a black-and-tan dog with which he
was playing. The wound healed quicK-
ly, causing little or no pain. The day
after Mr. Fisher was bitten the dog was
seen playing with a ball of worsted,
and, as he died a day or two latter with
symptoms of choking, it was supposed
death was caused by his having attempt
ed to swallow some of the worsted.
Mr. Fisher first manifested unmistakable
signs of the dread disease on last Thurs
day afternoon, and died early on Sun
day morning, his sufferings being limit
ed in some sixty hours. After Thurs
day the symptoms were clearly marked,
the spells of madness irequens anu vio
. . . i
lent, the intervals few. Uuring these
spells the sufferer would snap, bite,
foam and strike at the three of four
strong men who constantly guarded
him, and who,, for self-protection, had
their hands thickly gloved, and earned
each a pillow before them to repress
each onset. In the calm and lucid in
tervals he apologized, remembering dis
tinctly his words and actions. In the
next spell he would fight more tunousiy
and cry out, " Ah, didn't I give it to
you? Didn't I fetch you that time.""
etc. As pieces of ice were thrown
toward his mouth he would snap his'
open jaws at them most furiously. He
was attended by Dr. Carpenter, oi i ous-
ville, and three of the resident doctors,
but treatment availed nothing. His
throat swelled on Saturday, and with the
most painful chuckling and choking he
died on Sunday morning. bhenanaoan,
Some Tall Stories.
The Virginia (Nevada) Enterprise
says: ine yarns spun uy uui vu.
stockers are occasionally to draw it
mild a little tough. A night or two
since the conversation in a C Street sa
loon turned on big trees. The "Uig
Trees" of the Calaveras Grove were dis
cussed, as also were the big trees of sev
eral other California groves, when a
aril a m n -1 rirtlw ino- o-entleman. who had
-,v' -v - e
been a silent listener, took the floor.
" I must admit," gentlemen, said he,
'that the trees of which you have spoken
are no saplings, but some years since,
while traveling in the wilds of South
Amprica. I discovered a tree that was
much larger than any you have men
tioned. I do not know the name of the
tree, or that of the family to which it
belongs, but it had leaves as large as an
elephant's ear, was 48 feet in diameter,
400 feet in height, and its branches
spread over nearly three acres of ground.
I camped under the tree about a month
and during my stay it at one time rained
six days and nights, and not a drop of
water came through its branches. How
ever, the weather had hardly cleared up
before that tree started in, and for six
days and nights it rained cats and dogs,'
as the saying is. Tons and tons of water
had found lodgment in its foliage."
1 know the story of our friend to be
true," said an alert-looking old fellow,
" as I also once camped under the same
tree, and on one or two occasions ob
served the peculiar phenomenon just
mentioned. It was while camped under
that great tree that I was witness to a
very strange occurrence. The tree
stood on the bank of a large stream that
abounded in fish. Being an inveterate
angler, I was out every morning and
evening with rod and line. The river
was nearly half a mile in width, and
just above my usual fishing-place was
auite shallow for a distance of 50 to 100
varda from the shore. Herd of wild
cattle roamed the country, and of even
ings came to the river to drink. One
i i i
evenin" a nerd came, waueu oui into
the stream some distance, drank and
started back to the shore. Gaunt and
savage-looking beasts they were, with
horns twice as long as the cattle ol l ex
as. A young heifer brought up the rear,

frantic splashing and plunging. The
main herd pranced about on the shore,
pawing, bellowing, and apparently in
great distress. Moving up the bank of
the river to ascertain the cause of the
trouble, I found that the heifer was in
the jaws of an alligator at least 30 feet
long. As I stood looking on, the alli
gator turned and moved off across the
river with his prey struggling in his
mouth. Next morning I was again ear
ly at my fishing place. I had been on
the ground but a short time, however.
before I saw up the stream a most sin
gular object moving about near the
shore. At a distance it loofeea like a
great fish with horns rising from its
head. Creeping cautiously up the stream
I saw a strange sight indeed. 1 here
was that alligator with the heifer in his
mouth, and being unable to swallow
her, on account of the great spread of
her horns, he had taken compassion on
her and was wading slowly down the
river, holding the poor beast's head in
such a way that she was able to feed on
the grass that grew along the edge of

took himself, when the rain commenced
to pour down, to the interior of an old

ground, and set it up on end. Fayette
