Jane, with a nniit of disapproval.
" Yes, I believe I ain," answered
" The Throckmortons were always a
suir-necKca race. l wisn you well,
Rose I wish you well ; but I don't care
to have one of my girls marry into the
Rose forbore to answer that her girls
were in no danger of marrying into any
" Yes," she pursued, "they've always
had filthy lucre enough always their
wine in the cellar, and their capon on
the spit, and their brocades and dia
monds for the 'confusion of the neigh

old mansion-house, whenhewentto court,
for fear she would enjoy herself too
much. 'Who knows but your Mr. Theo
dore is a chip of the old block P A tyran
nical set, the Throckmortons were,
never at peace with their wives. There
was Tristram, the first member of Con
gress from this district, or State, or
whatever it was in those days well, be
married the prettiest fool, and he broke
her heart, and they used to say that her
ghost wandered about the old mansion
house ; that a young lady who was visit
ing there years after visiting her son's
wife met ner in the corridor, dressed in
an old-fashioned changeable silk, with an
ancient brass candlestick and lighted
candle in her hand, holding it up to
look at the portraits on the wall. Oh, I
know the Throckmortons, root and
" But Theodore doesn't belong to this
branch," said Rose, who was used to
Aunt Jane's .tirades.
" Tbey all come from one stock all
from one stock : masterful people, the
Throckmortons, carrying all before
them ; walking over a friend if he stands
in the way, breaking the hearts of
women. I've even heard say that your
mr. x neoaore, witn au ms son manners,
never got on with his wives. "
" You speak as if he had had a harem,
Aunt Jane," cried Rose. "Theodore
has never been married but once ; and
if he didn't get on with her-which I
don't believe it must have been her
" I wish you well. Rose ; but I'm
thankful that neither Ellen nor Amanda
is going to trust her happiness to a
Throckmorton." . ;
Could there be any grain of truth in
Aunt Jane's insinuations P Rose pon
dered. Of course there was not a par
ticle in hor innuendoes about Theodore ;
but were the Throckmortons a hard
family? Of course Theodore was an
exception, if they were as hard as flint;
and as for his first wife, Hose had
scarcely thought of her vividly before.
What had she been like? had Theodore
loved herP had she dreamed of another
woman filling her place' It seemed
just then to Hose as If that must be the
bitterest thing in all the universe. She
wondered if Theodore did not possess a
picture of her somewhere, that she
might satisfy her curiosity one day, and
Judge if it had ,been painful for him to
part from her what manner of woman
it was who had won his heart first. And
he plagued herself conjecturing which
he would hare chosen had he known
them both. She felt a sort of anguish
in behalf of this dead woman, who had
stepped aside and let the sunshine upon
Mow that she reflected upon it, Theo
dore had been strangely silent in regard
to her, It was certain. Was it indiffer
ence, or because the grief was too
aacredP Does a man, she questioned,
ever make his first wife the subject of
conversation between himself and her
successor P describe her charms, make
an inventory of her little attractions?
Wouldn't it be awkward? Rose had
no experience to inform her. Per
haps it was temperament which
decided. This affair, however, did not
dwell long in her mind; other things
absorbed her buying the last items of
the trousseau, unpacking presents, the
perplexing task of making a little
money do the servioe of a good deal, and
trying on the wedding dress. Though
thejjnnrj,2jjsasa family were
foreign education. It wan only a year
since Hose and he had met on a railway
train snowed up a few miles beyond Ut
ile Crampton. She bad been to the
city to give a music lesson ; he was
coming home to look afuir some prop
erty that had fallen to him in Kit lie
Crampton. Though they were but live
miles "from the station, yet the storm
was so cold and blinding that onlv a
few undertook to walk into town.
There was but a handful of passengers
altogether, Kittle Crampton people
mostly, who did business in the city and
returned at night: and so it happened
that Rose was the only woman among
them. They spent the night out there
among the the drifts, there being, for.
tnnately, plenty of wood on board the
train to keep them comfortable; and
under such circumstances people make
acquaintance with comparative ease.
Mr. Throckmorton, not wishing to
travel on foot in the storm, and rather
enjoying the novelty of the situation,
had yet ventured out a mile or so, and
foragod at a farmhouse, returning with
a supply of dainties which he begged
Rose to share. Ho had observed that
she was bored, sleepy and miserable ; he
sympathized with her as a man Invaria
bly does with a pretty woman. Why Is
It that beauty in distress is more appeal
ing than ugliness P Thoueh for the mat
ter of that, perhaps Mr. Theodore
Throckmorton would have folded his
wrap for her weary head, have braved
the storm for her refreshment, and be
guiled hor tedium with anecdotes and
nonsense, all the same, had she been
the plainest old maid in Little Cramp
ton ; but then his conduct would have
proved an exception to that of his sex,
no doubt. By daylight Rose and Theo
dore were as intimate as If they had
been born neighbors; and an acquaint
ance begun thus, in a snow-drift, had
drifted into a more tender relation. In
spite of Aunt Jane, Rose and Theodore
were married, and set off in the early
winter for his Southern home ; and what
a new world it was that Rose had dis
covered I She used to wonder, during
those days, if it were really herself, poor
little overlooked Rose Thornton, who
had a right to all this splendor, to
all this love and devotion ; if she Bhould
not wake up to find herself in her dingy
little room at Little Crampton, in her
black delaine, trying to make a dime do
duty for a dollar, with nobody kinder
than Aunt Jane to look to, with all this
happiness only a dissolving dream.
"My life Is like a poem," she said, al
" I hope it will never become plain
prose," I'heodore would answer.
Mr. Throckmorton was called away
on business affairs for a week or so,
when they had been married a little
more than a year, and at first it seemed
to Rose as if the sun had gone under a
cloud. She tried to occupy herself with
a thousand trifles ; the very roses in the
garden appeared to hang their heads
and drop their petals pensively; the
mocking-birds sang out of tune ; the at
mosphere was oppressive as before a
thunder-storm. Rose wandered about
the house and grounds aimlessly, not
knowing how to pass the time without
Theodore. She reminded herself of the
fhost of Mrs. Tristram Throckmorton
aunting the corridors with her lighted
taper to look at her husband's portrait ;
she turned over the rare prints in the
library; she opened the old-fashioned
novels, written for a dead and gone
generation; she drew a melancholy
strain or two from Theodore's violin,
like the wailing of a banshee. One aft
ernoon she bethought herself of Theo
dore's diary of the war, which she had
promised she should read whenever she
wanted to descend to plain prose. "It is
hidden in a drawer of my private desk, "
he had said. "Read it, Rosamundi,
when you wish to be bored within an
inch of your life." She opened the desk
and began her search ; but the diary
was not so easily found. A friend had
borrowed it, not long before, in order to
fix the date of some political events in
his mind. But while she turned over
his papers and opened the drawers, her
fingers must have touched accidentally
tho spring of a secret compartment,
which, flying open, disclosed the picture
of a woman in a case bedded with
pearls and emeralds a woman with
great velvety eyes like a panther's, a
rich color on the swarthy cheek, and a
tense expression about the scarlet
curve of th'e lips; a face to haunt
and perplex one. Rose shuddered before
this apparition. " Death is in her beau
tiful eyes," she cried. " How she must
have hated to die, and leave this pleas
ant world and Theodore! How did
he ever forget her and love met" And
then her eyes fell upon a shabby little
diary pushed out of sight beneath the
picture. "This must Tie Theodore's,"
she thought ; and she seated herself in
a Sleepy Hollow chair to enjoy it, yet
feeling as if that face would always
come between herself and Theodore,
unless she could lose herself in these
pages and forget it. In fact, so pene
trated was she with thoughts of this
beautiful dead woman, whom Theodore
had once loved, that she had been read
ing the diary for an hour or so, had
turned the leaves, and had tried me
chanically to follow tiie thread, before
she awoke to the conviction that it was
not a novel she held, nor a record of
the war, that it was not written in Theo
dore's hand, but that it was a record of
intense feeling and agony the diary of
Julia Throokmorton. .

on the still river, which was like the
picture of a dream, while you forgot us

comets, weighing the stars and the
earth! I was a hut Pleiad, the course

love and melody ! what sunsets bloomed
for us two! what stars trembled into

not purchase happiness for me. I should

with this inarticulate cry? "Julia

thunder-storm had risen in fury, bntshe
had not heeded one of those sudden
Hashes of the elements; the lightnings
had rent the sky, and had torn up at
one stroke a great tree on the avenue.
Theodore, returning unexpectedly, has
tened through the grounds and house to
the library in search of her; she had
used to fear the passion of these South
ern Btorms unless folded in his arms;
but she stood up now and confronted
him, holding Julia Throckmorton's diary
in her hand, a speechless horror frozen
in her eyes, shrinking away from him,
convulsed and cold.
"You you," she gasped "you
starved her to death, here in this lonely
place ; and and I I loved you ! The
Throckmortons are a hard race," and
she foil fainting into his arms.

Remarkable Tom Kelley.
One of the most remarkable private
soldiers on either side in the late war
was a young man named Tom Kelley, a
private in the Second Michigan Infan
try. The remarkable began with his
build. He had arms a full band longer
than any man who could be found. He
had no more back-bone than a snake,
and could almost tie himself in a knot.
He could tell the date on a silver quarter
held up twenty feet away, and he
could hear every word of a conversa
tion in a common tone of voice across
an ordinary street. He could run half
a mile as fast as any officer's horse
could gallop, and there was a standing
offer of $10 to any man who could hold
him down. On a bet of a box of sar
dines he once passed six sentinels within
an hour. On another occasion he en
tered the Colonel's tent and brought
away tnat otticer s boots.
When Tom's remarkable qualifica
tions were discovered he was detailed as
a scout and spy, and was changed from
one department to another. In the ca
pacity of spy he entered Richmond three
times. He entered Vicksburg and
preached a sermon to the soldiers a
week before the surrendor. He was in
New Orleans five .days before that city
was taken. He was a man who firmly
believed that he could not be killed by
an enemy, and he governed his move
While under the orders of Gen. Hook
er.Kelloy proved on several ocoasions that
he could see further with the naked eye
than any officer could with a field glass.
Ii he could get a place of concealment
within fifty feet of a picket he could
catch the countersign. He visited Look
out Mountain, intending to spike as
many of the Confederate guns as possi
ble. His disguise was that of a farmer
who had been driven from home by the
Union forces. The enemy somehow got
suspicious of him, and he'was platted in
the guard-house for the night. There
was a sentinel at the door, and others
near by standing guard over guns and
stores, but it was all the same to Kelley.
With an old tin plate for use as shovel
and scoop he burrowed out at the back
end of the building, and walked up to
two pieces of artillery and spiked both
before any alarm was raised. When the
sentinels began firing at him he ran out
of camp, but before he was clear of it
he had been fired on fifty times.
Kelley was once captured when asleep
by Missouri guerrillas. When he open
ed his eyes he was surrounded by five or
six men on foot and' others in the sad
dle. It was nnder a tree in an open
field, and he had been tracked by a dog.
As he rose up at their command he resort
ed to his wonderful skill as a gymnast.
By dodging and twisting and jump
ing he got out of the crowd, pulled
a man off his saddle, and would have
escaped had not the dog fastened to his
leg. He was then put under guard in a
big house with only one room. Two
sentinels sat at the door with revolvers
in their bands and kept watch of his ev
ery movement. After an hour or two
Kelley approached as if to offer them
tobacco, and jumped clear over their
heads like a deer. He had half a mile
of open field to cross, and he crossed it
under the fire of a score of muskets and
revolvers without being hit.
During bis three years and a half in
service Kelley captured fifty-two Con
federates and turned them over as pris
oners. He himself was captured and
escaped five times. As a ipy he entered
more than thirty Confederate camps
and forts. He was fired upon at least
1,000 times, and yet was never wound
ed. He had said that he would never
die by the hand of an enemy, and his
prophecy came true. In the last year of
the war, while bringing a captured Con
federate scout into camp, both were
killed within forty rods of the Union
lines by a bolt of lightning. Detroit

Pi Bin i Rahcid Butter. One of
our foreign contemporaries gives the
following mode of clarifying rancid and
tainted butter: "Let the butter be
melted and skimmed, as for clarifying;
then put into it a piece of bread well
toasted all over, but not burnt. In a
few minutes the butter will lose its of
fensive taste and smell, but the bread
will become perfectly fetid." We have
serious doubts with regard to the above
process producing the results claimed.
Still, it is so simple that any one can
try it. Exchange.
How to Choose a Good Cow. The
crumply horn is a good indication; a
full eye another. Her head should be
small and short. Avoid the Roman
nose; this indicates thin milk, and but
little of it. See that she is dished in
the tace, sunk between the eyes. Notice
that she is what stock men 'call a good
handler skin soft and loose like the
skin of a dog. Deep from the loin to the
udder and very slim tail. A cow with
these marks never fails to be a good
milker. There is more difference in
cows than usually supposed and but few
really good cows are offered in our mar
kets. If a farmer has a "No. 1 article,"
he won't sell her unless obliged to do
Now Pfsii Bitter Cows. It pays
to feed cows giving milk liberally. But
ter is Inch, and now is the time to feed
profitably. Every cow should be made
to produce as much butter as possible.
Whenever butter is twenty cents per
pound or more there is money in the
dairy business, and the man who feeds
most liberally and judiciously will make
the greatest nrotit. Meal, both cotton
seeof and corn, roots, pumpkins and
fodder corn, should all come in for a
share of attention as profitable food for
dairy cows. Whatever kinds of food
are used the cows should have all they
can profitably turn into milk. Many
men feel that they cannot afford to buy
grain for feeding to cows at this season
of the year. Let them take a different
view and ask themselves if they can
afford not to buy grain to feed cows
when butter is as high as it is at pres

Butter Making the Year Round.
The public taste for fresh made but
ter at all seasons of the year has been
steadily growing for several years.
There are several good reasons for this
change. - In the first place the art of
keeping butter which is made in dairies
under favorable conditions and of fine
quality is understood by but few makers,
and even a less number of purchasers.
A vast quantity has been spoiled every
year in holding it for a higher price and
subsequently sold for grease. This
depreciation has represented an im
mense loss of money, and the progress
which the last five or six years have
witnessed plainly indicates that it is
only a question of time when all of the
butter manufactured for market will be
made in creameries. Dairy butter is
under a cloud and it is only a question
of time when it will not be known ex
cept for private or home use. It is im
possible that the hap hazard, hit-or-miss
plan of the old time (aud the misses
were far more numerous than the hits)
can exist in competition with the cream
ery system. Organization and improved
methods the result of experience and
Bcieatilic investigation make it possi
ble to produce an article very uniform
in flavor and quality during the entire
year, and the public taste is demanding
this kind of butter, preferring it even
to that made in June. Fresh butter the
year round is demanded by a large class
of consumors whose numbers are being
constantly augmented. The art of butter-making,
as now practiced in the
best creameries, produces an article
which is very fine, but to enjoy its high
est excellence it should be used within
a fortnight after it is made. Tho differ
ence in the value of fine butter used in
this way, and that made in the summer
by ordinary methods represents many
thousands of dollars.
Now it is as easy to carry out the " all-the-ycar-round
plan," as to confine the
butter-making period to the summer
months. As a matter of economy in
labor we believe it is easier. To carry
out the plan it is necessary to have half
of the cows drop their calves in Octo
ber or November and the other half in
spring. There is, then, the same num
ber of cows to milk the year round and
the same quota of " help " necessary
all the time, instead of a double force
during the summer or the period of
butter-making, if all the cows are to
milk. That winter dairying is more ex
pensive than summer is, we believe a
mistake, although that opinion is gen
erally held, being based upon the sup
position that pasturing is cheaper than
stall-feeding. Yet the cows have to be
fed whether they give milk in winter or
not. But one acre of good meadow
gives sufficient hay to winter acow upon,
while three at least are required to past
ure her in summer. The cost of cut
ting and storing one acre of hay is not
more than the use of two acres of past
ure. A judicious system of winter
feeding will not increase the cost much
if any over that of summer dairying. At
all events the increased returns received
for fresh butter throughout the year
provided it is well made and has in Jan
nary the golden tint of June butter
will more than compensate for the dif
ference, should any exist.
mere is no danger that the business
will be overdone. The domestio re
quirements for fresh butter in winter
are larce and increasing and the foreip-n
demand is absorbing larger quantities
all the time. Prairie Farmer.
