After Home 1110 iiiciil's conversation tho uncle seemed to softcn,"nd opening his valine gave the other some bank note. The nephew devoured the reitiMiiiing roll with his eyes, nud After n curt word of thunks disap peared in th crowd. ' Leou and hi bride entered the hotel, and "ft ere shown to the he'd room in it. Their status ns a new l. uiariicd couplo pioiiucd thoin tint honor. Leon ordered dinner lo be served in their room. The dilliculty in procuring it excited bis wonder, and On Inquiring he tumid that the officers of tho Fifty second Hussars weie giving a dinner to their com rades of tho Sixty-first Chasseurs that very evening, henco the con tusion. To his horror he found that the banquet was spread in the room immediately adjoining the bluo chamber. "However, there was no he'p for it. The boat swore by nil tho gods that tho officers were the quietest men he ever saw in his life; tbat excepting the Chasseurs--there were no more lamb like individuals in tho ser vice than tho Hussars; and, be sides, they always rose liom the table before luiduight. As Leon, somewhat troubled iu mind, returned to the bluo cbaiu- her, hu uotked thnt his English fellow-traveler occupied the room on the other tide. The door was open, aud through it lie saw the Uiiton "seated before a bottle and glass, nmi contemplating tbe ceiling. "Well,:. it loakeft iio diflerence, Mtsr sll, paid he to himself, "tho glisumau. will soon be tipsy and theoOkcM Kill be gouo by mid night." .

And such stones. Ty were followed by roars of laugbter, and oveu our frieuds of lot hlue room iound it difficult to prencrve their gravity. . But the stories glow broader, the wugnttsr. grew louder. From An toret dccolhlkt they became 'fe mm.. Although he was not Prudish, Lcou thought the situa oh rather embarrassing for bis prttle, uud sendiug for the bud- ""to. do requested him to lff the Bemlemeii not to tusks sn much 0'so, as there was an- luva'id lady w ili rixt room, and his request followed by u roHr of disw:nf.

Fetch them both here, lor we want to drink to the bride and talk to the husband." Our friends in the bluo room trembled; they leared an asMault 011 tLfin would be made. But the same voire prevailed over the din, and it was evidently that ef n su perior officer. The night wore on, Lcou and his bride had almost forgotten their Knglisb neighbor, when they heard a strange son ml in his room. It was that of tun full of some heavy body. Mingled with this there was a peculiar, crashing, grating sound, followed by a stilled cry. bueiice. llien lucre were two or three muttered oaths, nud silence sgaiu. The young couple shuddered. What could it mean t Leou tried to reassure his trembling com panion, but he was interrupted by a cautious opening ot the next door. It was softly closed again, and then slow and apparently care ful footsteps were heard in the hall. They were lost in the distance. They ceased. . Again all w as Hill. noon the young bride was sleep ing calmly. Lut not so Leon. De spite himself tho sinister face ot the Englishman's nephew returned to his recollection. There was ha tred, he thought, 111 the glunvu cast upon the undo by the young man when he li ft liiui, and then that roll of bank notes in the valine. Aud that dull, heavy sonud, but uow like the fall of it body upon the floor tho cry tint curses. Such whs the train ot thought that ran through Leon's mind. Mechanically ho fixed his eyes upon the door which communica ted with the Englishman's room. There was a llttlo space between the bottom of the door and the tiuoiing. I!y the dim light tailing from the partially turned down gas he could sec something forcing its way under the door. "What can it bef thought Leon. "IsitnknileT Xo, for it has divided into two parts. And uow it divides again and yet again. Wlmt can "U but It is some liquid." The thing slowly crawled toward a littlo blue slipper. It encircled its heel. It stained its front. It was a liquid. It was a liquid of strange and uumisiiiknhlc color the color of blood. For a long time Leon lay uud gared upon the stained slipper nud 1 1 e reddish stream which cncirwled it. lie. pictured to himself the corpse lying in tho next loom; its discovery the folluwing morning; tiio door opening directly into the room of which tho bolts were on his side; the blood stained slipper, lie attempted to rise uud hide the slipper; us he did so his wile awoke and stin ted with afli ight as she felt his icy band. "What is the matter!" she cried. Leon explained to her the terri ble situatiou in which they were placed. Ho arose and attempted to remove the tell tale stains from the slipper, but it was useless. Day was breaking. Already the seivaiits were moviug urouud the hotel. In a few hours tho crime would be discovered aud the offi cers of the law would be upon them. "Alus!" said Leon, "our ouly Lope is this : At eight o'clock the traiu leaves for I'aris. It the Eng lishman's body is not discovered before that timo we are safe. We will take the train and lose our selves iu the pyeal city. There we shall be safe." His weeping bride flung herself upon his bosom. She felt almost ns though she committed the deed. But there yet remained two mor tal hours betore tbe train left. At each step in tho corridor they trembled with affright. They made their preparations for departure. Leon's bride wished to burn the bloody slipper, bat ho restrained her and concealed it ou bis person. Seveu o'clock sounded. The ho tel was nlive again with bustling servants. Leou forced his wile to take a cup of coflee, although she declured that her purched lii re fused to swallow. Tbcy then de scended to the waiting room, nud Leou demanded his bill. Tho host presented it, and begged bis par don for the noiso of tho previous evening. Leon assured him that they bad passed a very quiet uight. ' Well, I'm glad ot it," said the boat; "however, your neighbor on your left Jidu't disturb you much, 111 be bound. He's sleeping ike a dead man yet. I T,con shuddered. His wife grasp ed his arm convulsively. j "He's an English milord," con tinned tbe host. " We've got an- Riiipr TCiudiidimun here, too, who paid his bill nud lelt this morning. Ho eava mo an English bank note, I hope it's good. Look vt it. WU.il do you think! He showed lm a buk note. On one corner of it there was a" reddish stain. "It seems to be a good one," said Leon, with forced calm ness. "How long before the tram leaves V Half an hour yet," replied the j ht. At this moment the waiter en tered. "Gimme some brandy aud soda for the English milord," ho remarked, "aud send p a cham bermaid with ft mop; be dropail a bottle of xrt ou the floor last uight and the room is Hooded." To tbe amaze nicit of botb land lord nud waiter, Leou and bis wife sat down aud laughed until they cried. "Order na a good breakfast," said he to the landlord, " we won't go till the two o'clock train." rij moiitli Kotks. Live Stock Journal. Frequently styled the "Farmers' Fowls," aivi exciting considerable attention just now, and seem to bo "all the rage." They ate of Ameri can origin, as their name proclaims, and aro n cross betweeu the Ameri can Dominique, or Dominique (i.tino and the lilack Cochin. In color, they arc vuryiug shades of what we termed iu boyhood, "Dominicker." That is, their plum age is made up ot alternate scales ot blue or slate color and brown or black, tr as it should be, of slatcy grey and white. When you can get them that way, they should have clea yellow legs and bills. Hut this, so far, has been a very difficult point to fix. 1 have beeu endeavoring for two years, to get my Hock tbe desired shade, nud all with clear yellow legs aud bills, aud have tho pleasure of seeing, this spring, about seventy-five per cent, of my little chickens hatching out right iu this respect. There is a wide Held for improvement iu this variety, and I am satisfied, that when they have been known as a breed us long as Cochius, Iiiuhamas, etc., have, they will batch out as " true to the feather," and other fancy poiuts. as these older varieties do. One great ad vantage claimed for them is the ab sence of feathers from their legs, and being almost as Jlarge as the feather legged kinds, lint of course this is a mere matter of fancy. It is also held that they are better layers than Cochins or llralimas. aiid not so much disposed lo set. My experience has proven, that the larger Plymouth Hock hens, that breed back towards the Cochin side of the family, lay uo more eggs tlinn their progenitors before offer ing to set, and tho smaller hens that incline towards the Dominique side of tho family, lay more and set less. Iu hardiness ;bey are about the same as any of the other large breeds. They aro more disposed to II v out of bounds than Cochins or Brahmas. Tho popularity of this breed has caused a greater demand for eggs this season, than breeders in this vicinity have boon able to fill. Their eggs seem to vary in color ulsn, running from the rich tint ot the Brahma to creamy white. Character in Newspapers Every uewspaper in America, or in tho world, has character ex clusively its own. It is as differ ent from all other papers as one man is different from another. Some newspapers, like individuals, have stronger characteristics than others, but each has ft distinct entity of its own. Eveu an at tempt to make two newspapers alike fails, nnd this is one ot the. mysteries ot tho business, which eveu the oldest craltsmao is unable to solve. Passing by the type aud make op the dress of a newspa per there is a certaiu tone about each individual journal which no other possesses. This tone is not the expression of one individual, but the voices of many moulded into one. An Honest Suspension. A letter iu last week's Macon Sun, written at Mobile by the edi tor, Mr. J. J. Haynie, has the tol lowing regarding the suspension of the Macon bank : I fouud many, up-country mer chants wbo were called to the city by the suspension ot the commission house of Sims, Foster & Co. They wire then looking blue but to day nee all wearing smiling tuces, hav- ilia-learuod that tho assets of the house are in excess of the liabilities $100,000. An assignment for tbe benefit ef the creditors has been made to Peter Stark, of tho Peo ples' Bauk, who- will wind up tbe aitaim ani no tile ou claims as .wuiriitr n noasiblc. It is regard ed as au " honest" stmpensiou, and of course no one isccusureo. Cobweb silk gloves nre the latest London novelty. liny ' vrrynj. STATE PEESS.

HOME LEGISLATION. Meriuiao Mercury : Some legis lation is necessary to put a stop to murderers escaping under the plea ot insanity. Coiiunemeut fur lite iu the penitentiary should be the penalty inflicted, where a jury find a sauu man was insane when he committed a murder. Never turn him loose ou the world. SHOULD HE l'CMRIlEl). Meridian Mercury : The collapse ol the Macon banking house calls for the indictment of the directors and officers, who seemed to have robbed depositors iu order to save friends and relatives. As the case stands, it is disgraceful. The fash ionable way was followed, ot con vevingall assets to wives and chil dren, and then smashing. It is a case tor the grand jury nud the criminal court, and we hope the matter will be looked into fearlessly. JUDGMENT AGAINST I URLONO. ClHi iou : The caso of the Stale vs. Charles E. Furlong, former Sheiid of Warren county, was, last week, decided by Judge Young of the Eleventh Judicial District, in favor of the State, the Court hold ing that the statute of limitation did not apply to Sheriffs' bonds. Judgment was givcu against the delendaut and tho bondsmen for $ 7,1)20.00. , CAILKOAD TO TAZOO CITY. Yazoo Herald : A railroad will be built to Yazoo City within the next rive years from some point in the State, and our anti-railroad men may ns well make up their minds to this effect. A county rank ing second in population, second in wealth and second as a cotton grow ing county, iu a great State like Mississippi, to be witVout railroad facilities is something unheard ol in any country excepting this. RAILROAD TO LEXINGTON. Yazoo Herald: We weiff inform ed by a citizen of Lexington the other day that the proposed rail road to that pface from Durant will be built in timo to carry off tho next cotton crop. This speaks trumpet tongued in favor of the en terprise ot the parties who have un dertaken the construction of tho road. We hasten to congratulate the town of Lexington upon Iter good fort n tie. TETKIFIED BODY. Okalona Messenger: A friend told us a curious stoiy iu refeience to the petrification ot the teody of a young lady who died iu this coun ty ot typhoid fever, some twenty years ago. The body was exhumed last week for the purpose of rein; teroieut in another burying ground, and the great weight of tbe casket attracted the attention of all en gaged. An examination Bhowed the. features to be ns perfect as the day the corpse was buried. Our friend estimates the weight of tbe body and metal coffin at 700 pounds.

Southern Cotton Milts. lS.tu Herald. Bostor representatives of the several freight lit.es doing business with the South and Uoutbwest say that, all hough this is generally tbe most quiet of all seasons in t lie year, their business lis picked up most wonderfully. Not for more than halt a dozen years have there beeu so uiasy shipments ot goods to the South during this period as there are uow. One stiipier aloue has paid aud coii'racted for the shipment of cotton machinery npon which the freight bill aloue ex ceed 120,000, and there are others who are doiug almost as lurge a business iu that d'rection. Mills aie being enlarged and new struc tures Wing erected ut Clifton, Pirdmout, Itock Hill and Colum bia, S. C; Augusta, Ga ; Char lotte, '. C.; Satchez, Miss., and Montgomery, Ala., besides other points ot less magnitude. This sudden stimulus to trade is said 10 be the result ot a union of North ern aud Southern capital and en terprise. The mills are' generally superin tended by Eastern men, and the operatives for tbe most part bo long lo the class known as "poor whites," negroes being employed for heavy ontcide work. While the labor of Southern spinnsrs is not equal iu point ot skill to that utilized in Northern cotton lacto nes, the employers say that their men possess the advantage, of be ing contented with their situations and wages, not engaging in the formation ot trades unions or strikes. The employers also claim that, while perhaps the quality ot their manufactured :oods may not be equal to those turned out at the North, they aro able to buy cot tun at first hands, saving several profits aud freight charges, and can supply the Southern demand ut lower rates than can be aQorded elsewhere.
