Not hut what she loved liiin. (Jul no; to be the ife of Kichnrd Ueau had been ihe one .hope of Iter life. Looking up to him as lie slHtids by her side brings back iln scenes of four years ngo as if it but jesterday, when walking on the beach, with Ihe ocean , sobbing and uioaning at I heir feet, Richard Ui'itn had told her of his love, and w hat a ureal joy it would be to him if site would bo his wile. And she remember what an unusual pallor was tin the face of her invalid sisler, May, as she en tered her room that night, ami, sinking on a low ottoman i:t her fret, says: "Miriam, do you love Richard Dean t" She clasped ln-r aims around Ihe neck ol ber si.ster. "Oh, May" "There, there! I need uot have asked you; I might have known Mm did. Oh, Miriam, it will kill uie P "Why, May. dulling, what is the matter 1 Do you not think he is w oi l hy of me V ' Oil, not that, Miriam. There, let me bide my fare in your lap and I will tell yon. "I, too, love Rich ard ; 1 have loved him lor many eur: and it islhis that is wearing my life out, for he does uot lot e me. It is yon, Miriam, he would have for his wile, but promise me you will never marry him. Oh, 'how could jou, knowing it would be my death-blow f For it surely would I" IJow Ihe love of Richatd kept pleadiug iu her henrt, and how her sisters voice kept pleading; 'Prom ise me, promise, ine '" "Oh, I ciiunnot, May !"' she said, OtJast, or almost groaned, tor there was a territlle stiuggle going ou in ber big heart. Tlieu the pale face of May trrew even more pallid, aud the thin while hands that grasped her nerv ously in Iter excitement loosened Uieir bold, and, with a low cry, she she sank to the floor. Then there Hrose in Miriam's heart a prayer lor strength, aud .when at length tbe bull litelesa girl came slowly back to consciousness she whispered to ber: "I promise May !" But the words pierced her heart like a sword. And so it was that she accepted tbe band of Nich oli" Grant. Time passed; May die J, and Miriam Grant was a widow. She bad loved ber husband ; noble and pood, always so tender wilh ber, bow could she help it! And ber tenible griet at his death wa no mockery, although good many envious tongues, wbisia-red that she only married Nicholas Grant tor bis- wealth. People thought him wealthy aud so be had been, but. it "as the time of the great commercial crisis, and old establish ed bouses were falling one after another," and among tbem was NicbeJas Grant's. This no doubt hastened bisdeatb, for Lie could not tell the sad news to sis TOUDtr wife, and so, after the sod lad been covered ovor him and ; site, hittl come tiack, wem v illid Iifitit broken to Iht kii end il home, 1. .. . .' . .' tiiiij;er toltl lier it. uiust lu sold , " . .. . . to pav left penniless.

'This way, sir," said a hack man, and as the traveler settled himself buck iu the carriage he wondered if his little pot niece, as ho always called hi r, would recognize him. "Ten years make great changes; but my little Miriam, 1 should know her among a thousand." Yet, when a moment titter, be was shown into the splendid receptiou room aud Milium Grant entered, looking so pule and careworn, be would scarce ly have known her ; but she sprang forward with a glad cry and be clasped ber iu his arms. "Miriam, my little Miriam, what is the meaning of this?" and be touched her sable robes lightly. "Oh, Uncle John, 1 am a widow now." "Poor child! you have suflered so much," and lie stroked the sot t brown hair tenderly.

The Colonel is one among the many ueweomeis of this sec'ion v,lionre eulhiisiaMrc over Ihe results ot their expetience. What better tes timony could nnv man wish or ex pect : I stibsciihed one day last week for your valuaolu p ier; am in re ceipt ot the paper, of the 10th and Bud it all it purports to be. I am a new comer in the South I spent two winters iu New Orleans as one of the commissioners from the great State of Indiana at the great cotton centennial, ami was return ed again to the North Central ft ml South American exposition and during my sojourn in New Orleans I visited Ocean Springs, and be came inliituated with llio country it ltd purchased a farm, and I am spending some time in improving it, aud trying to say a good word tor this lovely coast country. I know the country well, Irom New York to Cheyenne and from Chic ago to Iho Gulf of Mexico. Have been engaged in active business nearly sixty year, and I say this county, Jacksou county, is the best country on Ihe globe, lor the price of it; still it passes tor a poor country. Rut no country I have seen that presents so many advan tages us this. We have Una fishing and o.vster laud, nrid nt least, we have the place to plant and grow the oysters by (he millions ; then our climate is most exhilarating, and for grass and stock range it cannot be excelled. I have only been heie since last April, and 1 have traveled pretty thorough')' over the country iu the dry pari of the summer and full, and I have remarked that no country I ever traveled through gave such an abundance of pure wale'1 for cvitlc or sheep anil t Imti..i mix of and sheep live, ,'inil (to v.i li heie the year l on ltd cm l lie native grasses, and w';;, we g"l lb IJonniula and Lfspfdcza iiiliodaced thor oughly, this will be (he garden spot tor dairying. I notice your country about StarUvilld is mating rapid strides in the dairy bitsiurss. la Indiana we did a large amount, of ilaiiv business ou land tiom $,0lo$lU0 per acre; here ihe laud cau be had lor from $1 to well watered and grass the year round then the people here are no' an agricultural people, mill will not hear to com mencing nuy new enterprise, but cling to the old plans laid down to them by their lathers. I have a neighbor who showed w hat could be done; he raised UU bushels ol up laud rice to the acie and 1050 bush els of sweet potatoes ou three acres, aud he can do it again. I see the lourlli ciop on my neighboi's laud since November one year ajo I have the fourth crop ou a piece id laud since April 15th last. The I. isl crop will all lie off aud auothei glowing beloie I be 15 h ot April. Lint I iiiii from I lie .Sir h, and 1 am enthusiastic about tin-ciimitu and Ihe niosoect. I have advised our citizens torai.-e the pern and tig and pecan. I cau show I t ees . in this county that produced 50 worth ol pecans to the tree last jear. I can show capitalists that to plant 1000 acres of out cheap laud, and give it that attention it sluniM have by tin tough cropping aud woi k that an oichatd should have, mid al the end often years it would pay in Iruit or mils an interest ol G per cent oil $1,000 pcracie ou the laud. Then 1 see until her industry that is sadly neglected here, that is mule raising. A mule a u be raised here until he is three years old at a cost of $30 kT head. That cost will include paying ihe interest oa the cost ol the laud, interest ou the puce ot tbe mule and the service of the Jack. Still no capital hereto einb.uk in an enterprise ol I hat kind; and I will guarantee more upland l ice can Ue raised to tbe acre bete than cau be raised on any ot tbe laud iu the West, on laud (lint w ill cost a man $40 or 150 erncre; Mud uo feed of any of Ibe cereals lor feediug young mules that will begiu to equal ibe lice, cut in the dough, anil led like w feed oats iu Ibe Noilb.

Yout s verv tru'v, WILIJAVl MOLKSON. Ocean 5p, injs M.s- NUMBER 5. A man nauieil Myfou T. Ely, according to the Chicago Herald, has done the public some serv ice in compiling from court reports a manual of the railway passenger's rights. W hy, when and where may a passenger be ejected from a train is frequently u pi rplex'ng question for conductors, and the 'exercise of the right is certainly . Iium'diatiug to passengers. For instance, it is one Ihing to prevent a drunken or disorderly person or a "bad character'' from boarding a train, and quite another to expel such a one atter being iuvr 1 u 1 ly ou bounl. Rat having lawfully allowed a drunken man to get on board be cannot be expelled during the journey unless he misbehaves. Then, too, a company may refuse lo allow a passenger to board a train without a ticket, but it be succeeds in getting aboard lie can not be expelled for want of a ticket if he tenders the legal fare. Rut if you refuse to pay your fare and the train has been stopped for the purpose of putting you off, a subsequent offer to. pay does not give you a tight to remain, nor take Irom the conductor the right to ex clude you from the car. Nor having been put off do you gain a light .o re enter immediately ou tendering either the fare or a ticket. You forfeit your right to continue ou the train. Except that it the train stops at a legular station, and before being ejected there the fare is offered, the conductor should receive it. It is a familiar rule that because it is lawful to expel a passenger it must be done with us little violence aud force us possible, and in a man lier so as not to injure him.

An Illinois decision niaiiesyou lia ble to expulsion without redress, ii you, having no ticket, refuse to pay lure, even though the fare asked be more than the price of a ticket.
