"Looks sort of sUo'.vct like," said John Parsons, coming into the shanty the day before 1 ho r s were to go to Sacramento, and tirdingthem and theif mother with eyes which gave evidence of weeping, packing up their wardrobes preparatory to taring. "I believe 1 1 hall cry my sou if you vimin folks don't stop lookin' so sick like about the month. You don't want to see an old man like me cry, do you, now?" "Come, mother, cheer up. You know the girls '11 be in good hands, that '11 treat .'em well and lot vu know if anything happens 'em. "f arn't fer very long any way; only a few months, an' 1 waa gone from you all more than six years, and if I hadn't a left you we wouldn't have had th:? ranch to-day, which will soon be the nnest in the whole country; worth all the hard work ani sufierin' we've gone through. ... "At least," he added, meditatively, 'as well worth it as anything that poor folks gits is worth what it costs 'em. ; "And here's Johnny, he's a houseful of hhusslf, ain't, yon, Johnny? Yon won't let mother and me git lonesome. will you?" r , Jsut th3 youngster had caught tbe in fection of tear5and his father's forced attempt at being jocular conld not re move jthe fueling of coming loneliness that was casting its- shadow before, and he stood st 11 and looked silently at the preparations for the departure of hia sisters with an expression on his face of 1 sadness ana-ha'f of baby wisdom, as il .he halted between sorrow tor the com ing loss of the girls, and regrets that his 'parents had no bet'.er judgniant than to J.permit their going. . ihe morrow saw them depart. A tew .'months later, ; a beautiful day in spring 'saw, them return, improved in mind ana I - . I ' J A. -t 1 ' 1.1 appearance irom me coniact witu muse iwhose thoughts and deeds had sought, lor were seeking, a difterent channel fthan that to' which their own had been confined. . If John Parsons had ; been proud ol ihis girls before, he was doubly so now; xol lie vuuiu uut iiiii lu eu uiut ttuei- ation with people of education had giv en an added grace to the body as well as the mind. And, unwittingly per haps, the young people of the neighbor- 'hood showed them a trifle more defer ence than was usually given to those of their own age and condition m life. :This deference was in no sense obse iquiotisness; it was but the natural ex 'pression of that respect which all, even those least ambitious of excellence, feel 'for others who are known to be striv ing to make themselves wiser and bet ter, --v . MrsParsons was not less pleased than j her husband. She also noticed the es teem m which her girls were held by young ana oil; and that while they j aided as willingly and cheerfully in the 'household work, or in that of the vine iyard and orchard, as ever they had idone, they saw that the performance of ! manual labor atone was not all their duty to themselves and to society, but ?that the mind and the heart were en titled to cons deration as well ; as the body. - I As for Erastus. - he felt a little shv fwhen he welcomed the girls on their re r'turn. True, he kissed both Jennie and her sister, but somehow it was not the hearty kind of a smack with which he had bidden them good-bye, and he held 1 Lucy's hand while he kissed her, instead lof giving her a hug as he had done the morning they left. ( ; As for Johnny, he was in ecstae'es; JforTiad not the g.rls brought him a half-dozen things that he had been wanting jand "expecting "on" their return? Be sides, he should have some one to help hunt hens' nests and look for ducks' leggs in the water of the creek, "where .they persisted in laying them if they 'were not watched and shut up every Ijrght- , - . A few days after the return of Jennie land Lucy the carpenters came and be gan work on . the new house. All the 'spring: and summer they were busy; 'and when they left, there stood in front, and a little above the bid shanty, jwhic-h was henceforth to be used for fruit-packing and drying purposes, a two-story frame house with green blinds and a .verandah on three sides; the coolest, most comfortable, most hospitable-looking house you would see in a month's travel. . . And no more hospitable family ever lived than , that which gathered about the table of John and Martha Parsons, and partoolc of the rich fruits and well c'ooked meats and vegetables with which it was daily spread. ' ;-No straggling miner,' weary with travel and wanting rest and food, ever left their gate without at least a silent wish that blessings : might descend and Test upon the household. To - ramble about the . broad porch and through the ope:i rooms, or to gather around "a cheerful fire in the wido grate in the : sitting-room, came both the yonng and the old of the neighborhood. The occasional traveler through the country on businesi or pleasure heard of the Parsons' ranch; its splendidly tilled acres; its luscious fruit 1 and its hospitable owners, miles , before he reached it, and traveled an hour later that he might knock at its gates and obtain permission to spend, the night beneath its broad roof. . . The Parsons cottage was not the only inviting-looking one in . the nei ghbor hood, however. Others who came with them had prosjiei-ed also, and had built themselves houses, .which, if not quite so pretention looking, or so heat in their surroundings, ; a3 that of our particular friends, were at least as good as ordinary farm 1 ouses in the States. Many new neighbors had ako settled in the vicinity, some of whom brought little fortunes of two or three thousand dollars, and these htid opened ranches and bu.lt" houses both iu the little val ley above and th j larger one below, clear down to the rivei upon whose banks, a two honrj' ride from our friends' cottage, a town had sprung up, : where all ncclc I s-ipp'ies fo:r the fam ily were obtain vl, nnd f om which was shipped 1 y steamer tlm fruit and vege tables and. pou try. designed either for the miniiifi: towns abo . e or the larger market of Facrernanto and the sea port.. School-houses had been tuilt; churches and Sunday-Schools organized; the streams bridged, roads over the foot Jbills made passal-3 for wheeled ve Ihiclesiand altogether Hie neighborhood "had taken on life ah and rcsp.onsroffltlea of a comra-.inily ...ih'it wshed to be re garded a3 respectabio, law-abiding and conservative. ... When Jennie and Lucy Parsons re turned to school again it was to San Francisco instead of Sacramento, and both father and mother went with them to see that they were sarcly settled. They were not feeling the stings of poverty now, lind could afford a little recreation, John had sa'd, and they would attend the agricultural exhib ition, display some of the'r own prod ucts, see the" city, and mingle a little with the outside world; all in addition to getting the girls iixed in a good boarding place. Mrs. Parsons was not much inclined at first to make the trip. The journey across the plains, she sa'd, was enough to last her her lifetime; besides, if she went, Johnny would have to go, too, (and there would be no one but - Krastus remaining at home; but a little persua sion from the other members of the jf amily, and her natural desire to see '.how the girls were to be fixed, finally decided her to go, and arrangements 'were made accordingly. As there would Le no one to cook for Erastus, Mr. and Mrs. Ritchie asked Khim to make his home with them for (the week during which Mr. and Mrs. Parsons were to be absent, but it was finally decided that he should . remain at the place and keep "bachelor's hall" rather than leave the house alone. Mrs. Parsons and the girls, therefore, baked an extra amount of bread ' and pies, boiled a quantity of beef to be eaten cold, and ' on Monday morning Erastus drove them all to the little town and saw them take the steamer for San Francisco. " "It seems unfair to leave Erastus all alone," said Mrs. Parsons, as t ey passed up the gang plank to steamer. "He ought to have stead of me; there was really ;Of mv firoinav and he would the little gone inij no need have en the . city, 'joyed spending; the week . in , seems the sights ana attending the fair with the girls, very much. "Oh, walk never . mind him this 'time," returned her husband. T "He was down and eaw the .- fair all alone last year, and it's your turn now, anyway; .besides he can , come down any time whenlain't too busy, and I -.wanted ;you to go. It'll do you good to get out .a little.- You've worked hard all your life, wife; both of us hes. so fur es that's concerned, and" now that' we've "got .enough to be comfortable on, Why, let's 'be comfortable; thaf"s what I say." As for Erastus, there was a strange kind of feeling hanging over him as he mount ed his seat in the spring Wagon, in which they had all ridden down to the steamer, and turned his horses' heads homeward. He had not expected tobe lonesome when they were gone. On the contrary, he had anticipated having a pretty good time of it. Not that he did not love those with whom he had always lived, for he did love them all dearly, and, for aught he knew, equally; and he expected to miss the girls, who were to be absent so long, very greatly indeed. But just for the week during which they were all to be gone he should not get lonely he had thought. There was something rather enticing in the feeling of abso lute personal liberty; the; thought that there was no one, not even the members of his own family, to throw any restraint on his actions or to break in upon this musings for a whole week. Besides, one or two of his particular friends among the young men of the neighborhood had promised to drop in and spend the night once or twice, and the cooking would be but fust for a week. He had no doubt but he could do it about as well and as nicely as Aunt Martha or the girls. And why not? Had-he jaot seen it done every day, and three times a day, ever since he could remember? "It was a pity," he had told them .when they had attempted to condole with him over the prospect of having to rcook his own meals, "It was a pity if twenty-one years of observation couldn't .enable a man to cook a decent meal of victuals," and they had said no more 'about it. - But now, as he turned his horses' heads away from the town and towards home, there suddenly came into his 'mind a picture of the house and its sur Iroundings, and -this was : followed by 'the queer kind of a feeling of which ! have spoken, and which he did not ever remember to have experienced before. He i' could see the ' cottage with the i green blinds all closed as an intimation to any passer-by -that, the family .was ; absent., His ol&'dog, which had come with him all the weary way across the ; plains, and had met and welcomed him before he reached the gate on his return from short absences, . ever , since tbey settled in the valley, would not do so to-day, for- he was with 'him in the wagon.-5." ' "- The dog had become too old and stiff to take pleasurein following the Wagon, as a general thing, and ' preferred ' re - maining' at home with the family when Erastus drove the fruit wagon' to town, but when he saw preparations taking E lace for the trip to Sah. Francisco," he ad pricked up his ears with evident interest, and ' when th j entire family came out to get into the wagon, old Bose was close at their heels, and nei ther coaxing nor threats could induce him to remain behind started. v when the wagon - Evidently f he thought that another Journey, aeross the plains was to be un dertaken, and though much preferring to lie in the suusiiiae and keep the chickens out of the front yard, to any more laborious' service, he would yet have undergone any torture rather than be separated from the family, and a look of pain and mortified' pride came into his honest eyes when - told by his master that he must remain and watch the house, and instead of obeying he crept close to their feet and looked iteously up as if begging, them not to eave him behind, now that they, were going away, never to return. And so they patted him on the head and called him ' 4good fellow' ' - and 'brave old dog," and told h m he should go if he wanted to. Then his whole demeanor changed. He pave a great bark and showed his-teeth in an attempt to laugh, which can npt bo said to have been an entire failure, and endeavored in every possible way to express nis thanks and ;assure them that he was the proudest and bravest dog on the Pacific' coast,' ;and ready and able for any service that might be required of h'm. . V i Then he started on " ahead of . the wagon, looking back every few rods to 'make certain that he was leading in the ;right direction; but before they, were ihalf way to town he had dropped back Ito the side of the' wagon: then he fell linto the rear, and finally, looking back jand seeing how nearly the poor old fel jlow was tired out and how piteously he ibegged with his great eyes not to be left behind, the wagon had ! been Ibrought to a stop and Jirastus had got 'out and lifted h:m ia ."withtho rest of the lamAy,"" wTiere the girls and Mrs! Parsons had had 'some difficulty in in ducing him not to show his gratitude jin too demonstrative a manner. When they descended , irom - the wagon and went on board the steamer he was so fearful of being left . that he kept in ifront of them and under their feet until ! several members of . the family came 'near falling over him; but when Erastus 'had said "good-bye" to them all and , turning to go called to him to follow, he went wulingly, evidently satisfied that after all he was mistaken and this was only a holiday excursion. , And ' now he sat upon the seat with ;Erastus in perfect contentment and with a slight air of importance, as if he ;f elt a cciisciousness of having proven anew his devotion to tho?e he served, :and had received a recognition of his 'yalue. Ordinarily the presence of the dog imight have prevented any feeling of loneliness in the man had he been dis posed to it; but to-day,-although he did ifeel that the dog was company in a .sense, yet his. very presence, being unu ,suaL served to remind him that the, house to which they were returning (Was desolate, and somehow things tool on an unreal look,, and when he turned 'into the barnyard and saw the chickens land turkeys scratching in the straw or wallowing in the dust, he was not quite certain whether they were chickens and turkeys or just the ghosts Of those that were wont to scratch and strut there before all other signs of life had ceased and such an unnatural and oppressive stillness had settled down over the place. After taking the gears from the horses ,and feeding them he started to the jhouse to get his dinner. The thought iof cooking his own meal was not quite .so pleasant now as he had thought it .might be, and he was half inclined to go without it or take a cold snack and rwait until night before . cooking ahy thing. Then his appetite began to re turn, and he concluded to at least fry a couple of eggs and make a cup of cof fee. - 1 - , He entered the house by the back way, and stood for a moment looking about him. The fire was out in the 'kitchen stove; the chairs stood, stiff (backed and unsociable, against the .wall; the room had lost its air of cheer fulness, and his footfall had a lonely (kind of a sound as ; he stepped on the "bare kitchen floor. He threw open the door which opened onto the kitchen porch and let in a flood iof sunshine. The old dog had pre ceded him to the home and taken his accustomed place upon the - porch and (was resting. ; When Erastus opened the door, the dog opened one eye sleepily !and half raised his head as if to . inquire it he was wanted for anything, and then stretched himself to skep again. Every thing 'seemed . asleep or dead, and he cooked and ate his dinner with a feel ing as if he was cut ol' from all human society by a thousand miles of desert. ; ; . When he had eaten hi3 own meal he .called Bose in and set down a plate :With 'r scraps on it for him to eat. Then, hot knowing exactly what to do fwith the remainder of the food which ihe had cooked, he set that down for the dog also, and took his hat and went out to work. " ;. " - Several times that afternoon he won dered to himself that he had never be jfore notieed how still it was 'out there in the orchard, and ; whether it was al ways so perfectly quiet on the farm any how; and if the gec;e swimming about Jn the little pond made for them by means of a low dam across the creek, always moved around without making any more stir in the water; or if their occasional "honk" when one rose up Jn the water and flapped his wings was always pitched on that particular lone some key. As night approac.ed he returned to the house and fed the teams and the pigs and the poultry and then went in 'and got his own supper. At dinner he had said to himself that he would wa3h ;all the dishes after supper, when " he should have . nothing else to do, . but after eating his supper he found that he had no hot water, and decided to defer the job until morning; so he let Bose lick the grease off of them and stacked them up in the sink and went to bed an hour earlier than was his custom, with out spending any .time poring over his favorite authora,"with nobody to dis turb him," as - he had ' fancied himself doing when the idea of leaving him in sole charge of the house for a week had first been broached. , The next morning he arose, built a fire and put on water to heat and . then went out to feed the animals.,; The old dog welcomed him with a wag of the tail, and even followed him to the gate, but went no further. He had ; not yet recovered from his yesterday's unusual exercise, and when Erastus returned from. the barn heound him in his ac customed place on the porch with his head between his paws, from which he did not raise it, although he thumped on the floor of the poi-clr with his tail as an intimation that he was resting well, but was ready for breakfast whenever it was convenient to his master. ' On entering - the kitchen, Erastus found the fire burned out; but he re built it and cooked and ate breakfast, after which he washed the dirty dishes, and got out to work about the middle of the forenoon. - lie, ate a co'd ' lunch for dinner to 6ave tinie, ami for supper, a friend, thT son of a' neighbor, was present, ani they "piled thi dirty dishes in a sink, w here Mrs. Parsons found them, with other . on her return from the trip to Sn Francisco. -TO BE C02rrESUED. " A KENTUCKY DUEL - Eotr They Bandied Fire-Arms fn the Days That Tried Men. Victor Duquesne, tha famous pistol ihot of New Orleans, while traveling in Kentucky stopped for the night at a tav ern in Frankfort, say a the New York World. In hia days, pistols, Lke Ken tucklans going to take a drink, went in pairs. Every gentleman carried his twin derringers. After sapper Daqnesne went to the office counter, behind which the proprietor lounged, and patting down a half-dollar, "requested him to change it. The proprietor swept the coin into his money drawer in a mechanical way, and taking out two "bits," or twelve and a half-cent pieces, shoved them towards Duquesne. The latter, seeing that the proprietor made no move towards giv ing him any more money, said: "I gave you half a dollar; here are only two 'bits.' " - Yougi' me a quarter, sir," responded the host. l "Beg your pardon; yon are mistaken. Look in your drawer and you will see." "Do you mean to say I don't know a half-dollar when I see it? I say, sir, you gi me a quarter and you've got your change for It." Duquesne looked steadily at the tavern keeper for a moment. The guests seated around the fire-place became silent. "You are a llarl" said Duquesne, in a j low, evea tone. . Those terrible words - meant something in Kentucky, and the speaker knew it. . He -felt nervously lor his pistols. They were missing. He bad left them in his room. The tavern-keep er's movements were as quick as if be bad ' been charged by an electric battery. He jerked open his money-drawer, took from it a pistol, cocked it and covered Du quesne, who stood motionless. . "Would you shoot an unarmed man?" inquired the latter, calmly. That appeal is. never without its effect in the Old Commonwealth. "An unarmed man has no right to give an insu't." . "WLl soma gentleman lend me a pis tol?" said Duquesne, without removing his eyes from bis antagonist, whose two brothers had now ranged themselves by his side. . 'Fair play, the woild over," spoke up a burly drover, putting a" pistol in Da quesne's hand, whila two more ; were dropped into his overcoat pocket. The crowd parted. The men fired simultane ously. The landlord's right arm dropped to his side, broken, and his weapon fell to the floor. Duquesne stood unharmed and quietly exchanged his smoking pistol for one of the loaded ones in his pocket. One of the landlord's brothers, without a word, leveled a pistol at Duquesne, but before he could pull the trigger Duquesne fired and his new antagonist's right arm dropped to his side, broken. "Any more?" inquired Duquesne,' pre paring another firearm. -- Yes; confound youi?' exclaimed the third brother, firing one shot wildly and endeavoring to . shoot again. Duquesne fired 'quickly again, and that brother's arm fell, broken, just as the others had fallen. ' . , "Who the devil are you?" cried the landlord,- grasping his disabled arm. "I am Victor Duquesne, of New Or leans." . "I beg your pardon, Mr. Duquesne; I'm satisfied it was a half-dollar you gi'- me. Give Mr. Duquesne two 'bits, more out o the drawer, Bam," said the tavern-keeper to a white-faced clerk who had crouched beneath the counter during the fusillade. "Next time I want to shoot I'll look at the register and see who it is that is goln' to shoot back." - A WIDOW'S ; REVENGE. How She : Punished Her Husband tor ' Dying of Delirium Tremens. ' In the public cemetery, about a mile southwest of, the city limits, is a monu ment with a history, writes an Atchison correspondent to the Chicago Inter-Ocean. To old residents here, who are acquainted with the circumstances under which it was erected, some ten years ago, it has become a familiar object, but a . stranger seldom looks at it without a shudder and an exclamation of horror. It is a dull-red granite shaft, broad at the base and taper ing toward the top, and stands on a slope some fifty feet back from the main road. The image of a snake, about as large as a man's arm, is twined around it from the base to the ' apexv On the four sides of the pedestal is engraven in large, plain letters this inscription: 1 RICHARD HARRIS, Died February 13, 1878, of DSUHIUM TEKMBN3, ..

Dr. Chalice furnished him with food and clothing, and finally, when he was taken sick, brought him to his house, where he died one bitter winter night, shrieking that the devils were carrying him away and that his wife was setting them on. Mrs. Chalice and her mother agreed that what property Dick had left should be given to his widow and chil dren. The widow, however, said .she would only accept enough to get a monu ment for him she could take care of her self and the children.- -When she bought and set up the shaft with the snake and inscription on it all Atchison was shocked, and Dick's mother and the Chalices were wild with shame BUYTHEBEST.
