THE COUNTY PAPEB.
117 IMMIYNH A WAM.KIt. ORE 30N, MO A BLACKSMITH'S LOVING. 1 had resolved,, wtfh many persons 110 doubt who linil shnkon off Its yellow dust, never to visit the dismal little town of lHoomsbury again. It wns so cnllcil, perhaps, because of Its utter lnck of vegetation, nnd because of Its being 11 Sahara of red clay roails anil snnily plains, over which sickly shrubs nml vines strovo nml knotted together. I had left It In July, with n dull, hot sun cracking and seaming the dry marsh, leading to the town, and felt as If spared the commission of a crime bv tho sud den telegram which recalled mo to the citv. I whipped my horso into a mad gallop, and looklng'iicithcr to tho right nor left, nnlmtitcu by it vauuo wonder ns to how any 0110 existed there. Again It was July, and by a singular chain of circumstances I found mvself rambling leisurely on horsebaek clown tho dusty high street of' Hloomsbury. Tho samo" red sun was blistering thu paint on tho llttlo new post-olllce, and the samo brawny blacksmith wiped tho sweat from his brow before his forgo, and stopped work to stare at me in n vacant way. I had passed some Idlo hours in his shop before, and after u stolid scrutiny ho iccognlzcd me. "Hack ngain, squire?" he asked, giv ing mo a familiar nod. "It bo 11 matter -of threo years now since I shod your gray marc in tho off hind foot." I fa was evidently proud of this piece of memory. "Fully that," I said again, wondering how lie had endured all these days and nights in this (5od forsaken snot. Ho raised his muscular arm, ana witli a blaokened linger pointed to tho tiny cables of a homo near by. "I bo married since. I've got a boy up there, an' he'll bo a smithy! reckon, though his mother is inclined to the trade of shoe-strings, tapes nml tho like. I hato It, I do. Them be all white skinned, creamy fellows, witli no grit in 'cm." I had never deemed It a possibility that there could bo marrying or giving in marriago hero. In this respect Bloomsbury resembled heaven In my sncrellgious mind. Perhaps tho "old, old story" of love had mado It a para dise to tho young blacksmith. I gavo my horso a brief rest and a drink from the good fellow's trough, as 1 inquired tho current news of tho town, though, tho Lord knows, nothing could be further from my thoughts than to caro what news there was. I bad seen but once, for a moment, a faco which oven faintly interested mo in that horri ble place, and try as hard as I could, I could never drivo away that vision. I had strolled into tho llttlo yellow church ono sultry day to cseapo tho thunder-storm which was rapidly com ing up from tho west, and stepped into tho porch just as tho first heavy drops pattered on tbo roof, and on tho bleach ed grass about tho tumbled down head atones In tho yard. It was indeed a lovely faco which ap peared as a palo star in tho organ-loft, Jimong common-place, tawny-featured faces, with black and brown ringlets, streaming around them. Sho did not blush or return my gaze coyly, as young girls are wont to do in country places, but looked over and boyond mo in a piti ful, vacant, meaningless wqv. J, don't K no?. ..iiwwiui oiiu wore pink or blue, or lavender. It was a c"loud y, filmy sort of uress, nurairamy suited to ner largo gray eyes nnu rings 01 yenow nnir. nor Don net wns a sweet llttlo tiling, tied up with white ribbon. Her chin wns like nln bastcr, her cheek was. scarcely less pale. I lingered In tho church porch after tho congregation had trooped out and tho sexton Tiad shuttled un tho cloomv llttlo cditlcc. I had stupidly missed her in tho throng, or sho had gono out at tho choir entrance. I hadfonroltcn tho incident directly, and remembered it now only as young Jansen, tho brawny Norwegian, spoko of his wife ami babv. "There was rather a pretty vounff la dy thcro three years ago," I said, biting ji un, 01 raw straw, nnu looking over tho pollard window at tho church steeple. "A palo, white girl, in a straw bonnet." An indcscribablu Hush mouutod to his awnrth cheek and stained his brow. Ho dronncd tho hammer witli a sharn idnnir. una lot his iron cool while ho looked at mo threateningly for an Instant. The tigerish green faded from his eyes and icu a 111111, reu giaro. "Sho was considered handsome then, 1 Know wno you mean." "I hopo sho is pretty still. That was a faco I thought a man might sco over his tea urn every day for ti lifetime and not tiro." . "Do you think so, verily?" said Jan sen, sending up a shower of sparks. "It bo all owing to how tho faco look at you. If it bo with dead, cold eyes, and icy Hps why man, death itself at times could net match It. It was a sweet face to hang in a locket." With grcatsimpllcity ho had expressed inv thought. "Now; your wife," I said In a banter ing way; "l uaro say slio Is a smart cirl given to teasing you, and coming to meet you with your son on her buck, and then you threo romp away homo again." A sigh of anguish burst from tho honest fellow's bosom, and for tho first timo it dawned on mo that in somo way I was blunderingly torturing him. I began to talk ot other things, and strolled away with my bridlo on my urm uiiui i rcucneu 11 nuio gniiystone-yanl, where a gritty fellow with dusty eye junwuo unuu iu BllljJ ill ii worK 01 milK ing grave-stones. Ho wns at It still evolvinc a Roman-nosed amrel In i smock frock from a block of irranito, Ho was. by all odds tho merriest follow in JJloomsiniry, ami tlio gossip of the county. Ho bad many thlnirs to toll relntlvx to his ti ado, nnd many Inquiries to raako relative to tho rascals It was my business to hunt down. Ho declared himself very sorry that circumstances had mado n stone-breaker of ono whom fato clearly meant for a detective. Ho had a pair of pinkish eyes, deeply set under snaggy brows, and faco brim full of duplicity and conceit. Ho could climb like a cat, lio told mo, and could scalo a linohod wall like a lizard. Presently be said that ho had seen mo tBlk to a man for whom ho had a great contempt mo oiaoKsmiui. This was vory droll. I foresaw that tho stono brcaker must havo nt somo timo Injured Al. XT t uiu nurwugiuii. , Ho told mo at great length a long scandal in which Jnnsoii hail mixed himself up. Ho had married n half idiot girl and fathered hor child, whoso father no ono had over scon or heard of, and carried around with him a ponder ous threat to kill any man, woman or child who should speak lightly of hU wife. "All that I say makes him a great ns this blaekf mitli tho more so because ho Is a poor man and keeps hN idiot llko a ladv, with white ringed lingers nnd in stuff gowns instead of liusey; nnd, bless you, hn has given up all his ways, dropped nil pipes and drinks at tho public houso for tho sako of a wench who utters nothing but sighs. This Norwegian of yours Is n prlmo calf, Mr. Detective." This Norwegian was a lord, a demi god, a philosopher, n humanitarian, whoi! bulk overshadowed puny men, such ns tho gravc-stono maker and I, as a great tree would overtoil a sumac. Now I could understand all tho mean llttlo daggers I had driven into his heart a while ngo tills great, splendid fellow, who wore his heart in his sleevo for jackdaws to pick at. Hit by bit dur ng tlio next two days I gathered tho whole sad history of his marriage. There had been no courtship at all. Tim poor girl's people hud cast her off, being puritans who woro gray gowns and slept iu night-enps. She had not a friend in the world, and was in a sore strait, being in urgent need of women friends and medicine. Ugel Jnnscn went to her with tlio smoko nnd grime of tlio forgo on his fneo nnd hands, nnd spoko very feelingly and simply to her. She went with him to thu minister, and Ugcl's sister, with much horror, but wholesome fear of Jansen, took ehargo until nil was over. Dally and hourly Ugel watched by her, asking nothing in return, nnd by and by ho gavo tho baby whom all hntsd to sco his big brown lingers to hold, and the llttlo fellow slept in peace All this mndo Ugel tlio sport of the vidngo nnd furnlsned the town an ovcr llvcly scandal, but It was talked of In a smothered way. Jnnscn had tlio strength of an ox, and kept It wholly to lavish on one man when lie could lind him. I conceived the notion to help him in tills project. My mare understood her business well enough about this timo to east n slice. Jnnscn wns not nt the forge, tho shop was closed, and I was directed to his house, a retired llttlo spot, with a cluster of clovo pinks in n tiny plot in front. Tlio poor wife's baby wns ill dying witli a bunch of clovo pinks on his jilllow nnd Janscn's linger fastened in Ids cold little list. Mrs. Jnnscn snt still aud gazed vacantly at Ug61, while ho shivered as with an ngue. Perhaps ho had prayed to God to take back that child. Ho had done nobly by It, though, and now ho wns even sorry. It wns tho samo palo fneo of the or gan loft, surrounded by a tangled mass of curls of raro dead gold hue, and the sight of her gavo mo a pang. Jansen unlocked tho littlo hand and scattered tho pinks recklessly. Then lie bent over his wifo and said soothingly: "Como out Into tho nlr, Adelaide Jano will take care of tho body ho will bo nil right now." she got up mechanically and they met me at tho door. Tho sight of mo had a strange effect. Sho began to remem ber days beforo her sorrow. Sho put her hand to her henrt, and with a great cry fell at Jansen's feet. Afterward sho was sano and begged of him to let her go away at onco forever. Sho thought ho must loathe her. Ho held her flut tering llttlo hand to his Hps whilo a big icar icu on meir wcuuingnng. "You'vo had a rrreat black wronn, lass; when I've righted that vou mav o. if you wish. Until then I nm your rother neither higher nor better. I am you liavo mo bound body, android.' Hocamo nwnv witli mo. and in iim shop no began to whet up a hugo knife. "The poorlittlo wretch bo gono now," dnnscn referred to that other man's child. Ho smiled In ugly way at tho uroau, keen liludo of tho knife, nnd passed his lingers down It caressingly. "Long ago." ho said, speaking witli a bitter tasto In his mouth, "Adclado nnu spoils oi sleep she could not awake. Sho slept in n littlo place In tho turret of her father's houso. Ho was tno curate liore. Ho is a damned devil though." Jansen began at the knlfo again. "homo ono scaled tho wall. I must lind that man. Then I will rcstoro her her good namo and I will leave this place there is a curso of tho earth noro." "I will hell) vou." I said slmnlv He grasped mv hand anil shut, im Hi Di " :, . .. o mm jiut a nugu cuair n'jross in door. Ho was croinc out inilolinlti.lv I went toward the stono-breaker's yard ills siialt was still, and a thin bit of siem nroso irom a damp stono on which mo not sun streamed. A boy near by rigging a lino to catch tad-polcs said that lJocoard. thn had gono to stop the coping In tho third stop- of Tyler's mill, where tho rocks had started it. It was a dangerous steep place, and licceord was tho only lellow who could climb and carry mortar. Ho had been a Bailor onco in French waters.

Whether with intent or from fright his foot slipped, nnd with a fear ful cry tho mason went down into tho brawling raco bolow. I dropped into tho cottage after supper.

A Iexington, Ky., dispatch says the drouth his been the severest since 1854. Corn Is twisted and colled with heat nnd the dry weather, and wilt certainly be a short crop. Tobacco prospccU are very unpromising. Oats and hay yield well, but wheat, barley and rye arc not one hall crops. Hemp Is In a bad condl tlon.

The storms, floods and bugs have dono some injury. hut tho latest reports are quite favorable, par. ttcularl r from tho northern section of tha dtaU The other cereals promt&e more than the uvcrago results. Minnesota's chief product Is wheat sho having raised last year but 733,000 ncrcs of corn, 470,000 ncrcs of oats nnd 203,000 ncrcs of barley. Tho Kansas City Journal, of Aug. Oth, publishes reports from nearly cvory town In Kansas reached by telegraph,' giving tho con, dltlon of crop. Considerable alarm wm caus ed by continued dry weather, but the, reports nrc In the main cheering, showing tho damage to be much less than was feared. On account of tho failure of crops In tho western part of the state last year, It seems fair to esti mate this years, crop of botb wheat and corn In In the statu nt largo to bo nearly up to the amount produced Inst year. Somo sections have suffered severely, while others have an average crop. In localities which suffered last year there Is a cheering prospect nt present.'

Crow Dog was Captain ef tho police nt Rosebud Agency. When Spot ted Tall and Crow Dog wcro In Washington together the last time, there was bad blood between them, carrying pistols for cneh other. Spotted Tall wns ambitious to become chief of all tho Sioux, and Crow' Dog was an aspirant for tho great honors.

Thcro is undoubtedly a disposition on tho part of the government to drop tho powers derived under tlio coercion net ot passible.

Minister Foster writes to tho Depart ment of State, under date of July 18th, 18S1 that the Russian wheit crop Is likely to bo one of the largest ever raUcd In tho Empire, and that the export promises to lio much greater than usual. From Moscow, wljlch Is the great commercial center, It Is reported that nil brandies of business nre beginning1 to revive and flourish after a long season of depression, solely on account of tbo preepect of an abund ant harvest.

How many timos as you arc driving through tho country you seo a nice now mower or plow left in tho Held exposed to thoiweathcr from ono year's end to tlio other, and, in fact, over ono half of of one's valuable- tools left exposed to tlio inclemency of tho wenther, when for a mero nominal sum you could build a shelter for them. Tho result of all this Is that it will cost you moro for repairs In a few years than you could buy i a now implement for. Another and very Important point to bo noticed is tho proper cultivation of yot;r crops. A) great many havo tho much mistaken idea that tho least amount of labor bestowed upon a crop tho better, but aliovo all thoroughly prepare your hind beforo planting, and as soon as weeds begin to start co over your crop with a smoothing harrow, as this will exterminate tho first crop of weeds. If you keep tho weeds down at first you will have very little dllllculty i lug thu season, for it is much easier hoe than to harvost a crop that is half W;ceds ' . ' ' M SHU another very essential point Is to tako1 proper caro of whatypu have. It is much bolter to plant ono aero" and tun iuko caro or it ttian to plant twp ncros nnd leave it to tho merov of tho weeds, for you will derive moro benefit from tito ucro well oared for than from tlio two uorcs half taken caro of. and you will havo only half tho amount of space to ciuuvato. Another great loss is tho neglect to tako proper earn of, your buildings. How often you seo a houso or barn wll hout n coat of paint. Tho paint not only presorves tho building but pre Tints Its decay. Many times you seo a man driving along with his wagon jing ling liko a threshing' mnohine, simply for tho want of having a tiro set, or bo cuuso a bolt is missing. Tho conse- l ere ooso, tho felloe split, and presently that man will havo a bill of two or three dollars to pay tho' whcolwright for re pairs on tho wheel, when If tho matter had been taken in season, tho black smith would havo put him all right for fifty cento. - No Uft Thoro is no uso in putting up tho motto, "God bloss our homo" it tlio father Is a rough old bear, and tho spirit of dlcourtesy and rudonoss is taught by tho parents of tlio children, ana by tliQ oldor tp tho younger.
