It was tho song of "The llluc cyed Lassie." The blue-eyed luscle bloomed into womnnliood. and captivating tlio heart of James Hen wick, a young merchant from New York who chanced to be in Scotland upon business, she married him, and soon removed from tlio old manse at Loohmarben to take up her rcMilenco in that city, whero her husband became a prominent mcrclianV of tho highest tc- poctawilty Mrs. Henwick's home was a favorito resort of Washington Irving, who was a tirm friend of her son James, after ward tho eminent Professor of Client istry in .Columbia College, and author oi some sclcntllia and biographical works. When Irvine built ids beautiful res! dence at Sunnysldo he was indebted to Mrs. Hcnwlck for tho Ivy which now so luxuriously embowers tli.it delightful abode. Procuring tho slip at Melrose -Abbey, she planted it with her own hand, and often afterward had the pleasure, of seeing it beautify the homo of one of tlio most charming authors wnicit America lias produced. Mrs. Kcnwlek lias retained much of Hums' delightful portrait of her, even to her maturer years. George Thomp son, son of tho publisher of tho musio nndong of "The Blue-eyed Lnssio," who visited her in 1822, nnd wrote his father an account of his interview, said tho "twa sweet ecn" which so fascin ated tho poet were still clear and full of deep expression; that sho had great suavity of manners and much good sense. Sho told him sho often looked back with a pleasant memory to tho many evenings spent in tho company of , the great bard in tho hocial circle of her father's fireside, listening to tho brilliant sallies of his delightful conversation, "Many a time," said sho, "havo I seen Burns enter my father's dwelling on a cold, rainy night after a long ride over tho moors. On such occasions ono of tho family would help to disencum ber him of his dreadnought and boots, whilo another brought him a pair of slippers and ruado bun a warm dish of tea. It was during thoso visits that ho mado himself perfectly happy and opened his wholo soul to us; repented and often sang many of h!3 ndmirablo songs, and enchanted all present with bis manly, luminous observations and his frankness of manner. I never could fancy that ho ovor had followed tho rus tic occupation of tho plow, because everything ho said or did had a grace fulness and charm that wcro in an ex traordinary dogreo engaging." Nono of Mrs. Henwick's children, of whom tho Into Commodoro Wilkes mar ried a daughter, survived her.

Tho following bul letin .was prepared to-night at 11 o'clock by tho surgeons In attendance: By previous arrangement a post mortem ex amination of tho body of 1'rcstdent Garfield was made this afternoon In tho presence and with the assistance of Doctors Hamilton, Ag now, Bliss, Barnes, Woodward and Iteybuni, Andrew Smith, of Elberon, and Acting Assist ant Burgeon D. S. Lamb, of tho Army Medical Museum, Washington. The operation was per formed by I.umb. It wis found that the ball after fracurlng the eleventh rib, had passed through the spinal colu nu In front, fracturing the body of the first lumoar vertebras, driving a nuintier of small fragments of bono into the adjacent soft parts and lodging Just below tho pancreas 2J- fnchss left of the spine and behind the pcritonlum, where it had become, completely encysted. Tho Immediate causa of death was tccoudary hemorrhage from one of the mesenteric arteries adjoining the track of tho ball. Blood ruptured tho peritoneum, and nearly a pint escaped Into the abdominal cavity. This hemorrhage Is believed to havo been the cause of tho pain In the lower part of the chest complained of Just before death. An abeess cavity three inches by four was found in the vi cinity of tho gall bladder, between tho liver and the transverse colon, which wtro strongly in teradherent. It did not tnvolvo tho suLitanco of the liver, aud no connection was found be tween it and the wound. The long suppuration gave It a chance to extend from tho external wound between the liver aud muscles and right kidney almost to the light groin. This channel, now known to be due to tbo borrow Ing of pus from the wound, was supposed during life to bo tho track ot tho ball, im examination of the chest evidences of severe bronchitis were found ou both sides, with broucha pneumonia of the lower portion of the' right lung I he left lung contained no abscesses and the heart no clots. The liver was enlarged and fatty but free from abscess, nor were any found on other organs ex cept tne left kidney, which contained near its surface a small abscess about onc-tblrd ot an inch In diameter. It Is evident that the different suppurating surfaces, and es'icclally tbo fractured spongy tlBsuo of tho vertebra?, furnish sufllclent expla nation ot the septic condition which existed. D. W.

American Cottlrstor. yVhcrovcr tho Agricultural collego lias been united with tho university, tho for mer has failed in tho accomplishment oi its iruo purpose ino experience in Canadn, where an attempt was mado to attnch an agricultural collego to a well equipped university, is thus truthfully described by tho ofllcors in charge: "Tho ono word fnlluro gives tho history oi nil sucn nrrangomonta. ygrictiuuro Is overshadowed brother studies! farm intr is elbowed out brother D'ofcssions.

Tlio Cnnndians now havo tin agricultural colleco senarato from tlio unlversltv. whero tho students nil labor upon tho lurm, oucn ns ninny ns live nnurs iiaily, and so nrcat is tho success of the insti tution when conducted in this practical way that during the past year tlio man agement wero obliged to turn away two nunurcti applicants lor want oi accom modations. A similar experience in I tho agricultural department from tlio literary and classical collcce occurred in Mississippi and Texas. If tho trustees of our unsuccessful ag ricultural colleges would throw aside their own hobbles and prejudices, and learn wisdom from their own cxperlcnco and the cxperlcnco of others, they would sco that their failuro to enlist tlio sympathies and support of tho farming classes arises from tho fact that tho col leges aro not teaching practical agri culture. In far too many Instances they tiro In direct nnd senseless competition with such institutions as Yale, Harvard, Amherst, Ilowdoin and others, intend) ing tho languages nnd such higher simi les ns tiro not needed by tho vorng man who desires a practical education in agriculture. Kvcn tho name of collego is unfortunate in this connection, ns u implies nn attempt to follow nil tho routino of liberally ei dowed universi ties. A school of ngriculttiro represents far better tho purposo of these institu tions, n technical school for teaching young men to earn their living tlirouh ngricultural pursuits, a school whero not only theory but practice Is exempli lied. It cannot ho said I hero is any danger that a farmer may know too much, but it may bo truthfully alllrmed i lint life is not long enough for the nvcr- ago youug man oi mo.icrato menns to spend four or tivo years in tlio theory of agriculture, astronomy, mathematics, in tlio study of languages and tlio high er branches, when lie stands in immc diato need of such qualifications ns shall cnablo him to cam a living in cul tivating tho soil. A practical education, with a proper groundwork of theory, is far moro valuable to him than a smat tering of many sciences without mas tery of any. or than a head full of other people's ideas without tlio power of ap plying tills knowledgo in tho daily walks ox me. Tho Michigan Agricultural Colleffo is tho oldest successful institution of the kind in tho country. Tlio past year thero wore two hundred nnd sixty-five regular students. Trof. W. J. Ileal an nounces that nt. this college tbo students hnvo from tho ttart labored thrco hours a day, and thoj havo kept up a famili arity with various operations on tho inrm, orclmril anil gart'en. Exemption from work out-door farm work lias always tended to wean studonts from tho farm. In a college courso for farm ers great strcssslinulil bo placed on tho thorough training to iuvestinto any topic; thoy bhould bo taught to mako experiments anil to study tho laws of correct experimentations. Thoy will thus acquire tho habit of obtaining in formation for themselves. Trof. lieal also admits that his students declare a fow minutes' practical work in tho gar don or vinoyard with tho tutor is worth moro than all his lectures on similar subjocts. Books, lectures or theoretical knowledge nlono cannot mako a suc cessful farmer. Without praotlcal knowledge it is difficult to comprehend, apply, or oven to provo tho truth of the most important theories. Tho study of metallurgy nlono would never fit tlio village blncksmlth to forgo a shoo or point a nail. A practical education would cnablo a young farmer to Heal with special difficulties as thoy aro seen to nriso at every turn, whilo mero theo retical knowledge by Itself would cause tho endeavor to treat thoso special diffi culties on gonernl principles, of ton load ing to loss nnd disaster. Our agricul tural colleges' will nover fultil tho r truo mission until thoy como down from thoir high horse of ncadomio loro and teach their students practical agriculture through a combination of tho first prin ciples of the art, with a continuous nnd practical training in tho Held. Thero is no lack of colleges whero tho student may dovoto his timo tp literature, tlio study of languages and tho higher mathematics; but, on tlio other hand, tho colleges or schools whoroin tlio young man may sccuro a practical edu cation in agriculture uro as yet fow iu numbor. Tho farming classes for whoso advancement thoso Institutions wero es tablished havo ceitain rights which tlio trustees of theso misarrangod collogos, with but fow oxceptlous, hnvo ignored. It is high timo that tho agricultural in terests should bo consulted in this con ncction, and that practical education should bo the watchword of the future. As to that vory delieato question whero duty to our neighbor boglns and ends, Prosidont Gardner, of tho Llmo Kiln Club, takos this safo position: "Our dooty begins when wo lot his chickens scratch up our garden, Ids childron ride ourgato, an' his dog ohaso our cat without complaint.

THE KEY OF THE IRON SAFE To bo precise, it was on tho night of Tuesday, tho 14tli of March, that Mr. Milbourno disappeared. It was on tlio morning of tho 10th that Mr. Callow called in Clnrgcs street; on tho lGth ho was sent down to Mr. Methorston nt Torquay, who forthwith telegraphed that ho would hlmsolf nrrivo in London on tho 17th, bringing with him his du plicate koy of tho iron safo. Inspector i'orraby confessed to hlm solf that ho was puzzled. Ho was care ful not to confess as much to anybody else, however. Indeed, ho did not lies itato to maintain that ho possessed a clow to tho mystery, tho whilo ho assum ed an aspect of shrewd roforvo nnd calm vigilance Ho had fairly taken up his abodo in Great Grasshopper House. With tho prosenco of Mr. Netherston upon tho scone, nnd tho pioduction of his duplicate key. tho mistory of tho disappearance of Mr. Milbourno wns solved, but in tho most painful and ap palling manner. Tho strong room hav ing boon opened, tho body of tho miss ing solicitor was discovered in a hud dhd attitude upon tlio iron floor. Ap parently tho pool' man had been thrust into tho room with some violence Thero was n wound upon his scalp whero his bend had struck against ono of tho iron shulvos of the safo. lib had, perhaps, already taken up his hnt, and umbrollawhon tho murderous assault was mado upon him; at any rato, thoso rested besido his body. It was possible, of courso, that thoy had boon ilung into tlio safo aftor him. "Murdor," observed Mr. Forraby, in a low tono, "if thcro ovor wes a mur dor." A stranger's glovos faund in tlio mur- dorcd man's room! Tho inspector lied tlio gloves up in paper nnd deposited thorn in his pocket.. Ho mado an ontry of somo longth in his no to book, and then took to brooding a good deal ovor tho matter of tho murder, as though discovery could bo arrived at by a sort of incubatlvo process. a no muruor raauo a great stir. Tlio nowspapors found it an exciting thome. Thcro was, of courso, an inquest. Thero had boon n post-mortom examination of tho body. Inspector Forraby was called. In tho course of his testimony ho produced tho glovos found in Mr. Milbourno's room. Ho was obliged to confess, howovor, that lio had not sue cooded in tracing the glovos ts their owner. Tho oaso was onvolopod in mystery. It was proposod that thoro should bo an open verdict: Willful murdor against somo person or persons unknown. Suddonly a voice was heard in tho courts "Mr. Caioner, I request that hoard. Those my ovidenco may bo gloves are mine, I idontiy thorn." Thcro was oonsldorablo oxcltomont, or what tho newspapers call "sonsa tion," in court. Agentlernanly-looklug, woll-drossod young man stopped into ino witness-box. Ills name, it appeared, was Charles Dclmar. Ho was not in business. Ho possessed somo means of his own, and ho confessed that ho mado money on tho turf. A bill of oxchantro nccentcd by-him had como into tho possession of a client oi tho firm of Notherston & Milbourno. Ho had failed to honor his acceptance. Ho had been threatened, therefore, with legal nrocccdings, that produced tho letter ho hml received from tho firm. It informed him that a writ would bo issued against lilm on tho lotn or March. To avoid this ho hur ricd up from Nowmarkot on tho nftor- noon oi tuo I4tli. lio was lato in call ing nt tlio ofllco of Messrs. Ncthorston & Milbourno, for his train had been claim mado by tho lawyers on behalf of tncir client. It was liter than Go'olock when ho reached tlio office of tho lirm, but lie could not say how much later, It might havo been half-past Tho train wna considerably behind its timo. Ho had with him monovto satisfy tho debt: clerks had left, apparently buttlio doors wcro not closed ana tlio gas was burning In tho ofllco. A gcntlemnn who stated imsoll to bo Mr. jUilbourns carao from an inner room. Tlio witness hnd never seen him beforo had never boforo en tercd Great Grasshoupor House. Ho explained to Mr. Milbourno tho object of his visit. His interview scarcely lastcit live minutes. Tho interview ovor. . . .. . .... tlio matter of business concluded, ho had left Mr. Milbourno nt his desk. Could not say whether ho had or not. in going out, closed tlio tloor of tho ofllco be nud him. Had noticed tho lar?o Iron snfn it wns open, and tlio kov stood in tho n lock, ho thought, but was not sure Ho had not observed any ono lurking about tuo cntranco ot tho olllco. All was very quiet. Did not romombcr meeting anv ono in tho passage. Did not miss his gloves immediately; thought, nt first, ho must liavo loft them In tlio cab which convoyed him from tho station to Great urassiioppcr House Uccollcctod after ward that ho had them on whon ho en tored the lawyer's office, but it was too lato then to go back after them. Ho had loit t,onuon tlio following morning. nail not seen the nowspnper for somo days. Directly ho had heard of tho murder lio hurried back to town to glvo ovidenco beforo tho Coroner. Ho hnd only arrived in town that morning. Had' now tout tho court all ho know. It was judged that Mr. Dclmar had iiven bis ovidenco very fairly. Ho had answered promptly every question put to him. An ndiournmonlof thoinnuirv wns proposed, but tho Coroner thought that upon tlio wholo they might as woll torminnto their labors and lcavo further proceedings to tho polico. So tho jury returned nn open verdict. Largo rewards wero offered for tho ar- rest and conviction of tlio murderer or murderers of Daniel Milbourno, and it wns understood tho polico wcro most nctivo and Indefatigable in their endeav ors to solvo tlio mystery of tlio crlmo and to bring tho guilty to justice No arrests wcro mado. however, and nco- plo began to talk lightly of tho intelli gence of our officers of tho law, and to inquirocontomptuouslvconccrnlng "tho theory of tho police" uorsomo timo Mr. lumber wns un pleasantly conscious that ho was un pleasantly conscious that ho was an ob ject oi suspicion. Turn which way ho would, ho saw, or fancied that ho Baw. tho eyo of a policeman fixed upon him in a scrutinizing nnd distrustful mannor. It was hard; for fow men regretted tho deccaso of his employer moro sincorely man aid Mr. lumber. He could only rely upon tho oxcollenco of his oharno. tor, his woll-known respcotability, and nopo innt in timo no migut llvo down tho misgivings on his account, oven of tho police. It wns different with Mr. Dolranr. Ho, too, was under surveilanco. Tho tall, thin figure of Inspector Fnrrabv follow ed htm liko his shadow. But ho had not Mr. Kimbor's oonsolation. Mr. Dol- mar had no reserve of reputation to fall back upon. Ho turned upon tho officer ono day. "Look hero, I havo had about enough of this. When aro vou going to let mo alone P When is thero to bo an ond of this?" "When tho murdoror of Daniol Mil bourno is discovered," said tho inspect or. "GMo a dog a bad namn and hang him.

"Tho roward tempts you, I suppose Old Mothorston, I hoar, is vory liboral with his money. Ho'd pay any amount, thoy toll mo, to discover tho party who was really guilty of tho murdor." "Mr. Ncthorston does what ho thinks his duty, and 1 do what I think mine" "Thon I'm to seo you whichever way I go, am IP You're to follow me wheth er I go east, west, north or south aro youP Woll, I warn you; its enough to maddon a man.

"No, said Mr. Dclmar, with a strango laugh. "Not to murdor you, Mr. In spector, only to glvo you In charge. As I said boforo, I warn you." Mr. Dol mar turned on his heel nnd departed. Thoro was a cruel and wrathful expres sion on his face. Ho was of a deadly pallor and his bluo eyes flashed angrily. Tlio inspector musod: "A violent man, of vicious habits of Hfo, llablo to fits of passion, unscrupulous, vindictive, pitiless. Ho Is capable of any orimo. Ho carries a rovolvor. Ho would hnvo shot mo then If ho had dared, or tho chanco hnd seemed favorable I know tho man now. Ho did it." Tho inspector walked on slowly, med itating as ho wont, in tho direction Mr. Dclmar had tnkon. ' w f viuimi i --li was a ooiu stop, ins coming for- ward to claim his gloves and givo ovi denco, and ho did It very woll. But ho rccolvcd littlo money at Nowmarkot that day, and brought no bnnk notes to Lon don. Ho went to tho ofllco to beg for timo, probably. Tho tomntatlnn in snatch tlio dishonored bill was too much for him; ho yielded. Tho murder ro sultcd. A littlo moro ovidenco nnd tho warrant might issue Somo months went by. It was now Christmas timo; a vory cold Christmas. with tho snow hcavr unon tlio road- v a ways and roof nature's faco all whlto with tlio cold and tho wind whistllnsr nnd rowing around tlio street corners with n sort of frantio savagc-nos. Inspector Perrabv was still active though ho looked bluo and pineiicd enough, for all tho closo biitton!ng-tip. of his heavy overcoat and tho thick muffling of his nock nnd chin. Had tlio timo for action really como at last? After a closo conferenco with old Mr.. Ncthorston, Inspector Forraby had authorities at Bond street. A warrant was issued fot tiio immediate apprehension of Charles Dolmar, charged with tho murdor of Daniol Milbourno. Thcro was groat excitement in tho lit tlo strcot in Bloomsbury; not only bo causo of tho nppcaranco upon thd sceno of Inspector Forraby in a cab accom panied by two policemen, but a cry of alarm had arisen from ono of tho houses In tho street a lodging-house With ono accord all tlio windows in vliO' neighborhood scorned to bo flung open, roonrdlcss of tho bitterly bleak weather,, and clusters of honds, voting and old. tidy anJ untidy, forthwith protruded. "What's tho matterP" people asked. thoir teoth chattering in tho cold. Somo ono answered: "Woll, thoy do say as ono of Mrs. Grimston's lodn-nrs. tlm gontleman In tho back nttlo, has cono nnd shot hlmsolf." "Am I too Into?" murmured Inspoc tor Forraby, as ho mounted tho stairs, It was a low-coillngcd, moanlv-fur- nislied room, with tnttored walls and unovon, creaking floor. Tho light entered through tho snow-pattorod win dow, foil upon tho bed, and upon tho body of Charles Dclmar strotahod across it. A pistol had fallen on tho floor be side a pool of blood. The faco was scarcely disfigured, but thoro was a small, dark wound, through which tho bullet had passed, in tho center of tho forehead. Death, it was plain, had been Instantaneous. Ho was half un dressed; his chcoks wero hollow, and thoro wero deep linos about his whlto lips, but ho lookod very handsomo still. His faco had evon galnod In refmoment oi expression. "Such a nico gentloman as he wns." sobbed Mrs. Grimston; "so ploasant spokon always, and so liberal with his monoy so long as ho had any." "Don't cry," said tho inspector, "I shall nover got such anothor lodg er, though I must say that, if ho was obligod to kill hissolf, I wish as ho'd dono it nnyworo else It's so unsottllng In a lodging houso, and so hard upon a landlady at Christmas timo, too, of all others.

Tlio Inspoctor was eying tho floor in quisitively. Prosontly ho stooped, and. with tho help of a largo olasp-knifo suc ceeded in raising a portion of ono of tho boards. Ho found benontli it a rusty ring. Ho oxamlnod it carefully, and observed ns ho thrust it into his pookot: "Boyond a doubt, tho. koy of that iron safo." "Why, old follow, 1 thought you woro uoait long ago," no exclaimed, grasp ing his friend's hand and shaking I It with an enthusiasm that almost brought tears to his .eyes.
