This style of conversation proved so
agreeable to both parties concerned,
that it would doubtless have been in
definitely prolonged, but Adolphus
finally moved the wheels, and disclosed
to the view of the amiable prisoner the
crushed remains of her new heliotrope
hat! Then, indeed, came a change
o'er her mobile face; the features
sharpened, a stony glare fiilod her
liquid eyes, there was a perceptible
stiffening of the whole frame, and the
«traightest, sliffest, tallest uprising
that I ever beheld in my life. When
she had finally reached her highest
possibility, she inquired in a voice
not loud, but as clear and cold as cut

"Why, Arie," ho shouted between

too much for Arie's cool dignity.

burst out, "to s|K)il my hat, and you

HU Fiunim, 111
Shortly after the affair Captain
Archibald I'. Campbell, of tho Second
Michigan Cavalry, presented me with
tho black horse called Kienzl, since
made historical from having been rid
den by me in many battles, conspicu
ously in the ride from Winchester to
Cedar Creek, which has been celebrat
ed in the poem by T. Buchanan Head.
This horse was of Morgan stock, and
then about three years old. He was
jet black, excepting three whlto feet,
sixteen hands high and strongly built,
with great powers of endurance. He
was so active that he could cover with
ease five miles an hour at his natural
walking gnlt, The gelding had been
ridden seldom; in fact, Campbell had
been unaccustomed to riding till the
war broke out, and, I think, felt some
disinclination to mount the fiery eolt.
Campbell had an affection for him,
however, that never waned, and
would often come to my head
quarters to seo his favorite, the
eolt being cared for there by the
regimental furrier, tin old man named
John Ashley, who had taken him in
charge when leaving Michigan, and
had been bis groom over since. Neoing
that I liked the horse—1 had ridden
him on several occasions—Campbell
presented him to me on one of these
visits, and from that time till tho closo
of tho war I rode him almost eontln
sly in ovory campaign and battle In
which I took part, without once find
ing him overcome by fatigue, though
■in many occasions his strength was
severely tested by long marches and
short rations. 1 never observed in him
any vicious habit; a nervousness and
restlessness and switching of the tail,
when every thing about him was in
repose, being the only Indication that
lie might be untrustworthy. No one

however, for the intelligence evinced

Concerning Leap Years.
The following explains why tho year
1900 will not ho counted among leap
years: The year is flfi.i days, fi hours
and 49 minutes long; 11 minutes
aro taken every year to make tho
days long, and every
fourth year we have atl extra day.
I'll is was Julius Ctcsar's arrange
ment. Where do these 11 min
utes come from? They come from the
future and are paid by omitting leap
year every 100 years. But if leap year
is omitted regularly every 100th year,
in tho course of 400 years it Is found
that the 11 minutes taken each year
will not only have been paid back, but
that a whole day will have been given
up. So Pope Gregory XIII. who im
proved on Caesar's calendar in 1582,
decreed that èvery centurial year di
visible by four should be a leap year
after all. So we borrow 11 minutes
each year, more than paying our bor
rowings back by omitting three leap
years in three centurial years and
square matters by having a leap year
in the fourth centurial year. Pope
Gregory's arrangement Is so exact and
tho borrowing and paying back bal
ance so close that we borrow more
than we pay buck to the extent of only
one day in 3,80fi years. — Cleveland

In tho oilloo of the grand secretory
of the Grand Lodge, in the Mosonio
Temple, hangs nn oil paiuliug of a
woman dresaod in Masonic regalia. It
wee presented to Colonel Killers, and
is a portrait of Hon. Mre. Aldworth,
the heroine of this legend. She U said
to havo received, about tho year 1735,
the first and second dogreos of Free*
masonry in Lodgo No. 44, Donoruite,
Ireland. Tho cireumstancos of this
initiation were first published in Cork
In 1807, and it was claimed that they
were substantiated by nn eye-witness
to tho ceremony. Subsequently they
appeared in a memoir published by
,Spencer, tho celebrated Masonio
bishop, In London.
Mrs. Aldworth, nee Elizabeth St.
Leger, was the youngest child and
only daughter of the first Viscount
Doneraile, of Ireland. The lodge in
which she was initiated was an aristo
cratic lodge, consisting principally of
the gentry and most respectable and
wealthy inhabitants of tho country
around llonerailo. The communica
tions were usually held in tho town,
but during tho mastership of Lord
Doneraile, brother of Mrs. Aldworth,
the moetings were held at Donerailo
House, his residence.
Spencer relates this story of the af
fair: It happened on this particular
occasion that tho lodge was hold in a
room separated from another by stud
and brick-work. The young lady be
ing giddy and thoughtloss, and, de
termined to gratify her curiosity,
made arrangements accordingly. With
a pair of scissors, as she herself relat
ed to tho mother of our informant, she
removed a portion of a brick from tho
wall and placed herself so as to com
mand a full view of every thing which
occurred in the next room. She then
witnessed the first two degreos in
masonry, which was the extent of the
proceedings of the lodgo that night.
Becoming a waro from what she heard
that the brethren were about to sep
arate, she felt alive to the awkward
ness and danger of her situation, and
began to consider how sho could retire
without observation. She became
nervous and agitated, and nearly
fainted, but so far recovered horoolf as
to be fully aware of the necessity of
withdrawing as quickly as possible.
Being in the dark, sho stumbled and
overthrew something, a chair or some
ornamental piece of furniture. Tho
crash was loud, and the tyler, who
was in the lobby or landing, on which
opened the doors both of the lodgo
room and that where the young lady
was, gave tho alarm, burst open the
door and, with a light in one hand and
a sword in tho other, appeared to tho
terrified and fainting lady. He was
soon joined by the members. Her lifo
would havo fallen a sacrifice to what
was then esteemed her crime.
The first care of Lord Donerailo was
to resuscitate tho unfortunato lady
without alarming the house, anil en
deavor to learn from her an *rplana
tion of what had occurred. Having
dono tills, many of the members being
furious at the transaction, she was
placed tinder guard of tho tyler, and a
member in the room where she was
found. The members reassombled
and deliberated as to what was to ha
dono. For over two hours she could
hear the angry discussion and her
death deliberately proposed and sec
onded. At length the good sense of
the majority succeeded in calming in
some measure the angry and irritated
feelings of the members. It was re
solved to give her the option of sub
mitting to the Masonic ordeal to tho
extent she had witnessed (Foilow
craft), and if sho refused, the brethren
were again to consult. Miss St. Leger,
exhausted and terrified by the stormi
ness of tho debato, gladly and unhesi
tatingly accepted tho oiler and »as

was called, camo Into a large fortuno
