THE GIFT OF THE G0bSt BY MAUY 1'ATTO.N IIL'OSO.V.

Kdna V'alloty was our elosiest neighbor, and on very good terni8 with my sister Marian. Miss Vallory was very iretty everybody said so, exiejit oilier jiivtt-y wotiH'M who envied the ador ation' she reeieved. When I ac cepted Marian's invitation for the summer, 1 had never beheld this nondescript belle and beauty, but bad Seen my bosom friend, Chal mers, rush to his doom, that culmi nated in her graceful "I am sorry indeed, but. women have so few prerogatives yon know, else I bad told you long ago that I (lid not love you ; but you will be my friend tho'iiglL 1 v.'mti"i ose you ia this way." And he, intoxicated by her fae.itWt(Mis, added idiocy to his folly, and said: "Yes, I will always be happy toclaim you as my friend." l!ut. 1 was a man of parts, wealth and position, and would be the. last to succumb to her charms. 1 knew just where to lind the poison, and would keep my senses under due command. How coolly we can cal culation our safety when "scenting the battle afar." Hut I was sate I said to the ring of smoke that curled above my head as 1 lay on the Turkish divan in the library room, after Marian hud said : "Take cure brother mine ;" you have never seen "the queen of hearts," and un der this condition of things, "let him who thinketu he stands, take heed lest he fall." A most aslou iubin.r unman. Thev tell me she is engaged to a well-known diplo mat!', the greater need of precau tion.'' I bad a slippered foot on a broidereil ottoman, trying to lead the "Times" while in realty dream ing ot Edna Vallory, when 1 heard a silvery voice say to a servant : "No, I'll just wait here for Mrs. Cnrrew, I have but a moment to stay," and a marvelous vision in muslin garb with roses in her belt was quite before me. I was com pletely staggered j but; she received my low salaam, as 1 sprang to inj f.M.r. with Rticb a look of roguish deprecation, that I laughed in spite of myself. 1 instinctively glanced at Uiy tieyltie tiress. a saw me twinkle in tlio merry, brown eyes; I knew she had read me at a glance. 1 was clearly taken at a disadvant age hair awry, one sleeve ot my dressing-gown rolled upas if I bad just emerged from a puglistic en- counter w it n my meercuiiuui, wnim lay on (lib Eobfj the aslies sireweo about in a sorry plight. Hut she was "p-r.ttpii un" in all the "pomp anil circumstance" of conquest; I could Bee that. I wheeled a chair to the window for her accouiuioua tion, and excused my abwncef-I mentally thanked my patron saint without any apology tor the case In-fore us. 'Yes, she's all my fan cy painted her." I said to the re flection of Audrey Aimes in the lofty mirror; a3 I saw with satisfac tion that I had not been particu larly unpresentable; My tieglitr whs hniidoine, and itlj slippers a iiMM-id nf hamllwoik. Thanks to Vinett Vaoghan, who bad chosen them as a Christmas gilt the year before; "Pretty I" 1 repeated, Utlt not the siren againM whom I have been so carefully warned by Mari an.

Marian was invited to tea, anil as I was "only a man," and a guest ol Mrs. CarewV. she would extend the invitation to take me in, she laugh-. ingljr said to my sister; ana i was rather pleased at her frankness, aud lack of society rkie, as I considered it. That trardeii tea was vMi'o oflairv life; and yrt, all the witrli tiksof Elfland would be Jjuilc in deed, compared tomyextatic bliss as I Rite' by her side or listened to Jk'I' flutclfke voice.' A thousand times since I have seen that flower decked table again, in the lemon grove, the gleaming glass nnd sil ver, the beautiful fruit and flowers above all, the queen rose that bent herself to my amusement. She had dawned upon me, and all precon ceived resistance was forgotten. I had little to say to Marian in the homeward ride, nnd she laughed lightly as I helped her from the carriage and said again : "Your heart, Audrey, take cure." I had no heart, 1 didn't explain this to Marion, bnt every bit f it wiis in that lemon grove with Edna Ynllcry. 1 had sutlicient mother. wit about me yet, rvow-evv to fully believe it was a hopeless ptvsston 1 was .uuitiiug for tls-eelebrated beautv. i thought of brave Fred Clialmora. I was only another fly in Hve spider's web, "only this and irothiug limn-." 1 deliberated how best to extricate uivsi-lK "JIo who fights and runs away," suggested itself but I was afraid of the mirth in those bonny .yes. No ; I was a tnati, free to hold my nwtt heart as ! chose ; my nerves were cool and calm, I would not net the coward in short, I would float with the tide. Mins Vallery had asked ilio to caU flgniu, and I would. " I hi not go to llollindes foru few days, Audrey," said Marion. . 1 understand her. Wo were seated at breakfast when she said this. " It will be u good tonic for that wonderful vanity of Edim Val- lerv's." 1 lived in a slow fever in the in terim, ami went in the course f a week, and Marion awompanred me. Women know best how to manage women. Marion had' once been a beauty, and courted as much as Miss Vallery, but a little less in clined to flirt for the simple amuse ment, 1 think. We were ushered into the cool, grand parlor at llol lindes, and found quite a company of callers. Miss Vallery was (lis- tract ingly agreeable to me, and I was in the seventh heaven of beati tude. I was the victim of fato that was helping Edna Vallery to make a fool of me. " Have you seen my century plant, Major Aimes! 1 think the rest of the party have." And slm conducted me away through the grounds. But before she had reached the spot, where the wonder ful aloe bloomed, she turned to me and said, in the coolest possible milliner: " Whv have you not been to IIol limit's! I want the whole truth; were von afraid of mef' 1 felt very much as I used to when my tutorquestioued ine about my misdemeanors, while 1 trembled in my ooots, out i managed to say in an equally cool tone : "Afraid," and I affected the side- wise, woniiennggiance- "o, wny should I be f" It was not honest, ami I was ishamed of the falsehood, but could not res: st the temptation just then. I was delii'hted to seo a little puik flush steal over her pearly face, for I thought it proved my power to move her to pique or something akin to it. " How long shall ton be with your sister, Major Aimes," she asked, holding a little hand under the daintily cleft chin. "A month longer," I answered, and we moved on to where the aloe bloomed. 1 wondered then what purpose she had in asking my plans, bnt did not question her. What slm further said I cannot now re member, but it's general air of resist-me-if-you-can I could never forget. "Come again," she said to me aside, "when there are fewerguests. nnd we will practice Mignou to gether," and I promised. I went Hgaln Rnd again and how kinder she flatly grew I The preent was so deliciousj the dayg passed by as a beautiful dream. I was going away two days hence, aud would not see her but once again before I said good-bye forever. I tlioa.il t to enjoy these hours to their full, regardless of the pain to follow in their wiike and the disappointment after all was done. The moon was at its fnU, and we sat in the edge of the lembn grove and the pet fume of its leaves was in the grove while Edna's fingers Rtrayed over the strings of the soft guitor, aud she sung: Going awny, I thinli you sai'lt With never a word for me; Going awy, and 1 turn my bead in vain, for tlies.iu in the West laueail- All dewt on the darkling sea. The ships sail over the sea; I know, Ton far for a itlsiileu's sipht The ship sail on; the strong winds blow, And some to the laud of Orient go, And some to the slarlcas night. I look, and over the sea afar, The w lute sails flicker and gleam, And the ship rides puily over the bar, Kut the niu'lit is lil.j.k with oeTera.lar, Aud my In tu t in sad nh its dream. Only the riiu of the aea's far strand, Only the durk 1 see. Fr he 1. ft m here, by the trodden sand, With only a rose iu my little hand, And never a word for me, "Hut Edna, liiy datliug, I am not going w ithout it word 1 will say it to uiy bitter cost. 1 know all that you will answer me, though 1 long ago kucw your iiatare for this pretty tiifliujr, jet 1 must Maine you for its determined alluring. I ioveyon, though, as you haveTruver been loved before, and you know it as well as I." I saw her lace pate tisshe turned it away from me. Blie stammered something, I. could not hear, and then said with a little hesitation: "I am to be married to-if.orrow. Major Ames, w ill you come !" "Certainly I will," 1 said, natural circulation resumed by the insolence of her revelation, " but I'm twt tfw least sorry for my declaration." t even managed to smile derisively here. "The hour, the mystical moonshine and the scent of the lemon grove, conspired to hnw mj say w hat I knew you were duly "ex pecting." I bad tone?-Ad tire right :ioid, had shown her the meanneni toor folly, I sad to mysclfr, nd then I took her guitar from the rustic seat, and arranged her wrap about her before escorting her to the house. "Just like Edna Vallery," aaid Mrtrlon resentfully, and refused to go to the wedding, while I laughed at her, despite my weary heart. " Who is Miss Vallery to marry t I was asked by a score of people, to whom 1 answered : " Wo shall see, I presume, in time." They were queer wedding cards, simply a notification of the event and hour the bridegroom's name iu blank. "May I see yon J came on a card to me from the bride to be. She was very white and her bands were cold, while a burning light was i the Soft brown eyes. She gave me a note to read. The words were few, but they meant a great deal. "My darling Edna, it will be im possible for me to be at llollindes to-day. It is well no guests are bidden. I will see you to-morrow eve, until then trust me; as ever yOtllS. JOHN IrltKY." "And whatT" I asiied, feeling a considerable amount' of contempt for the delinquent lover. And then she placed her hand on my arm, and blushed rosily while she said : " But Audrey, I am not sorry iifter what you told me yesterday. But my pride is hin t by this." And then 1 suggested that 1 might fill the part this St. John (iiev bad failed to play. " It would save your pride) you know." And we were wed. Not one in that brilliant throng, not even Ma rian, who came when especially sent for, ever guessed the fact that the groom had failed to come to the feast. " You dear, ridiculous boy," said Marian, "why did you te.it.v5 ii!e so! Aud are you a slave to the Vallery's follv throughouti to be married thus." " You were fooled and so wits I, Andreyj" Endu said trJ mo til the honeymoon. . - . John Grey had thought it as to bo a quiet wedding; no guests, bnt the capricious damsel changed her mind, as was her wont to do in everything, though happily con cluding to a Mow his name to be un known until the decisive hour. "But how you managed to get the necessary papers and papa's consent within un. hour, Audrey, is more than 1 can tell," said my queen of the lemon grove. "Equally as mysterious tq.me," I answered. The recreant lover was sorely Imrt to bear of Edna's niatriagej. a matter of half a million of money preventing his prompt appearance. 'But it wouldn't have paid me, dear," she said, " for the love that begsin.in that .summer morn, when I came on yon in J our dressing gow n and slippers. The gods have always favored me, but inoie iu that thau aught besides." Marian has the usual amount of curiosity, but she is battled for once, though she cannot hide her pleasure in the denoueineut.

The Mississippi Mills, ) II. W. Cook, Sheriff. S The case is this: iti 187 tlie leg islature passed fiw exempting wholesale )rtipvu.y, buildings and machinery for manufacturing pur Krsea, from taxatfon. in 1873 tlipse exemptions were 'wholly abolished or greatly curtailed ivnd the. Mis sissippi Mills company denied the p'oner Xrf the legislature to pass this last act. The court held that the act of lStH was constitutional and operative, and ruled the follow ing points: " 1. T-hrtt power to the legislature to tax the property of corporations created prior to the adoption of war present State constitution which was December 1st, 180!), and which then, under the constitution and laws of tiiu State, was exempted from taxation, is not given by that instrument, so that where charter exemptions then existed, they still exist, under (('.at clause of the con stitution of the United States, which forbids any State from passing any law impaling the obligation ot con tract.. 2. That by the l.'Uh article of the constitution of 1809 the language of which is: "The property of all corporations for pecuniary profits shall bo subject to taxation the same as that of individuals," the legislature is prohibited from plac the property of corporations tor pecuniary profits created since De cember 1st, 1S(0, or of other corpo rations, the property of which was then subject to taxation, beyond tlio power of the legislature to tax it, though it can tax it or not, as it may think proper. 3. That under section 20 of the same article of the constitution, which declares: " Taxation shall be equal and uniform. All property shall be taxed in proportion to its value to be ascertained as directed by law." 4. The rule ot equality and uni formity of taxation of property is established, and that therefore whenever any property is taxed, belonging to a corporation, it must bo taxed "ufi t ho property ot nidi viduals is taxed, that is, " accord ing to its value." as legally ascer tained. 5. The legislature has the power to tax otcc thing than property, at its discretion, subject only to the rule of uniformity. (The privilege tax la is tin instance ot the taxing other thinors than property.) 0. It is still competent tor the legislature to exempt from taxation tor the tune being any property w hatevei--but one legislature can not tie up the hands ot subsequent legislatures, so as to place any properly of corporations for pecu niary profits beyond their power to tax it.

C, and became acquainted with a gentleman who, iu speaking of peanuts, said that he believed he was the first person who introduced them into North Carolina; and w hen quite a young mail; lie went tin board a vessel that hud put into Wilmington in distress; and he saw for the first, tlnlo nuum uuts in bags, and they told iiim they came from Africa, and . were know it as pea or gioiind nuts. They gave him a few hanilsful, which he planted) and as they increased, they were scattered around, and became a stttple article bf culture. Certain ft is; that at the tiiile referred to; the cultivation of peanuts was almost wholly con fined to the southern part bf '0ith Carolina. The production has rap idly Incicaneil-, and they are now raised In largo quantities In., most of the Southern and uiany 0t the WeMcrn States, and are now con sidered hS one Of our.proittiueiit and Staple articles Of agricultural pro- dui-t.

Nkw HraI'NTkij, Tkx., Aug. 1, ldr8. ; III April last, at sheerfrig time, I surefired the iioHea'ot' my shccj),nnd especially the knio'V, bountifully with tar, and bo far tliey' have not been troubled at all with gmb in the head. Last year, it inay be re membered, I lost a lew lambs from this cause.' The tor 'c'eitaiuly can do no haVnV, costs but a trifle, and I belie vo is' beneficial during the spring and summer moiiths. ''About the 15th'of AugYst, 1858,1 weaned my Iambs, over eleven hun dred in number, all on the same morning its nearly all 'were dropped in the month of April preceding, they were then about four months old. The Merino buck lambs I turned into my regular wether flock, where 1 ' kept' all my backs safe during the short tupping season iu the fall. The ewe and wether lambs 1 have kept in a flock by themselves up to this time, and all have grown and thrived remarkably well far better than when the old ewes with their lambs ran together, ami from one end of the year to the other. Every oiie w ho knows auything about sheep must bo well aware that long after a ewe has nearly dried up when she gives butadror) ot milk the lamb will hang on aud w orry her forty times a day for that drop. It does the latter no good; it pulls down and annoys the old ewes in short, injures both. For a day ortw oafterthey are separated; of course there will bo a terrible outcry and clamor, lambs bleating for their mothers, and mothers call ing for their lambs. But this is soon over; both soon set to work in earnest cropping their food. They have the entire day to fill them selves, and my experience" has proved that both commence latteu. ing Wi:hiu a week after the weaning is over. The old ewes 'have, a. chance to recruit nud strengthen themselves before frost sets iu ; aro iu fine condition for the bucks iu November, and pass through tho wiuter iu far better order. I iiuow that when a person has but a single Hock of sheep, and that flock small, it creates an additional expense .to. separate and wcau the lambs. But 1 hold that anything that is w.orth doing at all is wortli doing well, and the additional expeuso will be more than repaid by-tho increased size, strength, souifitioa nnd coustitotiou of the flock. ' . My hu;t year's ewe-lambs those dropped in the Spring' of 18.J3), I shall put to buck on the 1st of the coming November, or 'when they aro some nineteen moiiths. old. They will then be two years of ago when they have lambs, nnd I am confident this plan is much better than the one so oitcn practiced in. TexttSi ot allowing yearling ewes ta run with the bucks uild have lantui before they have-attained their growth, and before they are well able to sustain their oflspring. I do not increase my stock so fast by following this system ; but I mate rially improved it, both iu size and constitution, and that is what I am ....,iUf .mf I.- fcirivitifT nftoe.fe Wtt e:nl all atlord to In patient iiuTexas. 1 shall have-some two thousand. ewesio put to buck this fall. Of these about one hundred aud thirty are full blood" MeriHOcs, which I shall turn .into a asture with two or the best bucks 1 win find, on tho 0th of . October.. -On the L'Oth of the sailie moiith'L shall put halt of my grade ewes tw buck, aud on the 1st of November the balance. For six weeks only will the buckB be allowed t,orun with the cwes I never wish to seo a lamb come Hi one of my flocks later than the 15th of May. " 1 have proved to my own satisfaction, that a lamb dropped on the 1st ot April, when tho grass is vouue and lresli and the daya comparative! cool, will be larger and better lormed tue nay it is three mouth old) than will a lamb dropped on the 1st of July; whert the grass is apt to be coarse and dry; and the days scorching hot; when it is six mouth old J and tlio former will turn out tho best sheep iu every respect. Mauy persons; uuxious to increase the number' Bf their flocks, may be loath to be- -lieve all this; but let tlieui try both or all systems; The custom of al lowing bucks to run with the ewes the year round, aud having laiubS come twice a year, or during every month iu the year, I canuot but believe ruinous. It would worry me more to see a buck among my ewes in July, Augnstj or Septem ber, or iu February, March, or April, than a wolf; tile latter might kill half a dozen, and then end ; the former would cost me moie retd loss in the long rau. I a in induced to give this statement . iu relation to my systciu because I am .continually recieviug letters iroiii persons just starting in the Sheep business, making inquiries on the subject ) I do nut say that I am right 1 ask no one to toiiovr my general plan of management 1 shall change it the moment I hear of any one w ho hns had better success than has befalleu me, but not until then. . , Couclud.d next week.
