Wo mot and loved with all tho ardor and impulsiveness of a first love; you well, I belicvo you loved mo then; I know you do now, and use tho knowl edgo to crush you to tho very earth. Do I torluro you, my dear husband? Does your proud heart writho In agony? Then know how I was odco tortured by vou. Wo woro betrothed ovon now I wear tho rings of our first and second be trothal, In mockery of tho past. Wo parted (or a fow wooks, but months suc ceeded weeks, and no words of lovo on vcur part, and nono on mlno, for I Ironed you so entirety. A year passed away a year of sor rowand I road of your marriago to a rich nud nnciont dame. What an awakening that was when I learned that you had sold yoursolf for gold, sold vour yuth and honor for baso motnl! I road tho notico with an agonized brain; I becamo almost maddened -when I thought of It It did not 'break my heart." Oh, not I only changed from a loving child to a revengeful woman, with a fooling of such bitter liato in mv heart that Iwondcrl did not o mnd. Jl fow months after your wedding you wroto mo an explanation ,oi your desertion. How consldcrato of you tho husband of another, tho man I I bought bo tnio and good! You said you loved mo still, but your ambition had tempted you "from your lovo for jmo;" that you saw so many years of ratrugglo if wo had boon united; that -your impntiont nature could not wait for wealth.

Lone: goldon curls hung in masses around my well shapod hoad, tho sallow .complexion iiad changed to a clear red ;and white, and tho palo expressionless oys had now enough fire iu their depths to win hearts by tho score; my form was gracoful und woll-roundod, and I had tho consciousness of possessing f ramo as woll as beauty, How I long to coraoto'tho ovenlngwe met I Your wlfo had boon dead a year when you sought mo out, and wo mot at .tho houso ot a mutual friend, who on -this particular erot ing, hod given a ball in my honor. Beauty, jewels, flowers and niusio fillod tho orowdod rooms, and I, tho star -of tho ovonlng, was introduced to you .under my nom de plumo. I had stood by my mirror a long tlmo at heme, nnd taken great earo of my tollot, lor i wisnou to win your Heart at our flrit meeting. Yott loved mo.

Hut ha 1 you cannot lm- aglno what a woman can hide under a j smilo. Parents and friends wondered that I could take you back to my heart, after your desertion years ngnj but I only laughed merrily when thoy wondered and preparations went on for a grand woddlng.

As wo entered "my boudoir," as yon called it, you clasped mo to your heart, kissing mo on my brow nnd Hps, and calling mo "your precious wlfo." Ah! how I sat and smiled for joyt I could havo screamed in my mad de light at tho stab I should givo you. That night after tho wedding guests had departed, you sought your bride, and sho had flown, and left in horstead a boquet of withered flowers and a let ter. Do you remember how I spoko of your second widowhood? Ah! bat warcn't you happy to learn how I had oneo loved you Tho freshnoss of that first tnio lovo you had crushed, and now I am enjoy ing my hour of triumph. , Onco I loved you as fondly and pas sionately as you lovo mo; that lovo was crushed out by your morccnary mar riago vows. I hate you with a bitter hate, for you blasted tho young and ten der bud with your fatso lovo. You may search tho wide world over, and you will never find mo, yet I will bo near to you to male.) vour lifo as void and barron as you onco mado mlno. You will reach out your arm to clasp but empty space. You will cry out in your lonelessness for your loved Mir abel, and will hoar only a mocking echo. Rovengo! Oh, It is so sweot!

FARM, GARDEN AND HOUSE HOLD. Ompes us Tood. According to tho views ontcrtnlnod by Dr. Ilnrtsen of Cannes, In Franco, tho organic nclds In grapes dosorvo moro consideration, dlotcllcalry, than tlioy havo generally rccolved, and their nutritivo valtto has boon as commonly ttudcrrated. It is known that tlioy mo chat.gcd to carbonic acid in tho blood, and i ossibly caroful researches will show that they aro convertible Into fats. It is thought that they should bo rank- with tho carbo-hydrates as food. They havo also been found a valuablo diet in fever, and tho well-known grapo cures" iu tho Tyrol provo their benefit In othor disease;. The family Cow. Every farmer should proparo, as tho winter approaches, to kospono or moro cows (according to tho numbsr of his family), to furnish milk for nil tho members, ospi daily for children. Tho cow, or cows, should not only be woll fed, but well and comfortably housed, and this includes comfort for the milk er, for m.t ono milker in ten can, or will mil1: a cow properly, unless both aro comfortable. To milk properly is next to impossiblo if tho hands of tho milker aro cold and stiff, from tho ef fects of driving, ioy winds, or cold. dripping, drizzly rains. Milk is, or ought to bo, half tho food of tho family, anil no judicious farmer will permit his toblo to be without it, especially in winter. Adulterated Sugars. Inter Ocean. Tho New Orleans Times affirms that probably ono-half of tho northern re fined sugars sold in tho market are moro or lp,s composed of or adulterated with glucose, and that the heap grades of finegrained wliLo sugars aro scarce ly anything clso than glueoso. Hut It also says that tho Now Orleans icllncd and plantation hogshead sugars aro puro. Lot us bo just to southern man ufacturers, and noknowloilgo that it is truo. Tho sugar in hogsheads from the plantations Is pnro and unadulterated. Thero is not an article so cadly adulter ated that comes to tho trade purer nnd freer of adulteration from tho planter than tho sugar and molasses of tho southern states. Tho writer was in tho city of Now Orleans last wintor, and heard tho earnest protests of both plant ers and dealers against a small shin ment of glueoso to that markot from the north. House Young Stock. Now is tho tlmo to prt pnro wintor quarters for stock, by putting up frames for stables and sheds so thnt whon threshing grain and straw can bo stack ed on and around tho frames. Tho valuo of straw scorns to havo been over looked by a groat many of our Nebraska farmers In past soasous, but wo think tho past winter should sorvo as a warn' Ing to save every bit of straw. Cattle should havo a good warm place whoro thoy can stay during cold storms in winter, and at tho Samo time havo plenty to cat. This can be dono cheap est by staoklng straw on top of and around shods mado of poles. A better p'an, hovover, is to cover sheds with coaiso glass, and stack tho straw around the sides. Tho hay makes bottor covor and will last n number of seasons by putting on a light layer of now eaoh year. Where to Stack the nay. Jllnneapolla Tribune, Wo havo froquontly urged tho farm ers to only stack their hay at tho bar and stablos, whoro thoy would food out to tho stock in tho winter, thus savo handling it a second tinio whon wanted for uho, and plaoing it boyond tho reach of tho possibility of high water and prairie fires, and tho doop snows of win tor. Hay can nover bo moved so ohoap ly as whon It is mado. Had our advice boon taken, wo would not hear of tho complaints now of so much hay being under water. It is truo that farmers aro very busy duiing tho hay-making seasons, but thoy will find, in tho long run, that it will pay thom to stack It whoro it is wantod to bo fed out. Thero was a groat deal of sufforlng last win ter, in many instances, to tho stock of farmors in this Stato, in consoquonco of hay-stacks being walled in by snow drifts. Improved Cattle Curs.

A good many yoors ago a man who had icccntly nviivcd from tho Bermuda Islands was sont to York county, Pa. jail for somo offonso committed against tho laws of tho Commonwealth. Hu had with him a fow seeds which ho planted in tho rich soil of tho jail .ard. Boforo tho plants which sprang from tho socd roachod maturity, ho was dis charged and no onn know tho naturo of thom. Thoy grew luxuriantly, bearing fruit of ti largo slzo and unusual appear ance As this strange fruit ripened, its color changed from green to a brilliant red, and boi nmo an object of wonder and ii Imlrntlon to all tin inmates of tho jail. Mrs. Klinefelter, the lady kcoper, cautioned till tho prisoners against eating any of tho fruit, us sho w'S suro It was poisonous, nnd besides planted tho seed, as sho would endeavor to prcservo spcclmons of it for him should ho roturn in time. Just when tho fruit was fully matured tho Uermudnn prisoner visited tho jail, nnd asked to seo tho plant. Tho request granted, ho next called for pepper, salt and vinegar, and to tho horror of tho good lady commonccd to oat of tho sup posed poisonous fruit with a rollsh that astonished tho Ooholdors. After enjoy ing tho strango repast, ho informed Mrs. K. that tho fruit or vegetablo was tho tomato, or lovo apple, and it would bo found wholesome nnd nutritious. Tho seeds of tho remaining tomatoes woro carefully prosorvod and distributed among tho friends and neighbors of the lady, and thus this now popular csculont was introduced into tho ancient nnd goodly borough of York. For many years thereafter it was cultivated as an ornament rather than for tablo use? but by .egrees Us merits began to bo moro fully t ndorstood nd appreciated, and thero, as olsowhcro. lt grow into goneral public favor. Mck Animals. Gcrmantown Telegraph. It is a retuarkablo fact that in a si ate- of Naturo we seldom soo a sick animal. Of course, when a beast or bird becomes a little yeak, it is an easy prey to car nivorous animals that aro always on tho lookout for ohaucoi, and this will keep down tho number of Mek subjo ;ts that, would otherwise- como before us. But It is not likely that it would keop down all, and allowing, thoroforo, for this possibility of an early taking off of a weak subject, wo should still seo somo and cortalnly many moro than wo do. Wo think it is tolerably certain that when in a stato of Nature them Is not near so many disoases follow an animal as when it is under domcstio earo. It is quite probablo that thero is much moro iu tho popular phrase nbout kill ing things with kindness than wo imag ino. Not that wo should bo harsh or un feeling, but wo do many things under tho feeling of care that is unnecessary, and ovon on injury to do. Wo do things for somo certain reason, and tho con tlnuotho practlco f-om habit without any reason at all. Take for instance the way in which a brood of young oh'ekcns aro troatod. It is quito" likoly that if thero Is long grass about or tall weeds. tho young may bo dragged through by a thougUloss hen till tho littlo chickens aro tired out, or perhaps lost. To guard against this, tho hen Is put Into & coop as soon as tho chlokons oro hatched till thoy aro strong enough to follow pretty well wherever thoy may load thom. Tills being usually tho caso on farms, tho practlco bocamo oommon, till very ono thinks a young brood with tho mother must bo cooped up. They who should rofuso or nogloot to follow this practlco wonld bo thought lo bo very green sort of people No ono ever thinks to ask why they do this. Only It Is tho practlco and ll is dono. But tho oxporio"co of largo number. provo that many young ohlcks aro lost ovory year by tho most attontlvo pains taking. It is not too muoh to say that not one-half and this is a good over ago ovor live to grow to maturity. On tho othor hand, how rarely is it that a lien which "steals hor nost," fails bring up nearly or uuito tho whole lotP Tho fact is, that tho young getting through tho coon ond hoorlng tho mother's continuous calls to como back, nro rendered norvous and su'jjoct to disoases to a far greator extent than thoy would bo If ontlroly trusted to tho hen's own earo. In fact, physical o eroiso and cheorfulnoss aro as essential to health in an animal as thoy aro to tho human raco. How tho laok of theso things oporato injuriously on animal life, is shown by tho exporionce with animals in zoologl cal gardens and monagorlos. If thoy aro taken at mature ago and placed In confinement, thoy aro noarly sure to die, as ovorybody knows who lias on dcavorod to bring up in this way a cap tivo rabbit or bird. Ho has to tako thom vory young to sueoood. Even whon takon youug thoy oro subjeot to diseases, uo mnttor how careful thoy may bo handled, from which in Naturo thoy aro freo. Consumption especially is vory disastrous, largo numbers dying annually from this ono dlsoaso nlmic. Tho want of oxorctjo of a kind r.nited to tholr wilder nature, nnd wh.v N to them tho cheerful surronndln m of their nativo homes, makes all Hi diff erence. Wo may learn valuablo loison in tho treatment of our domestic anlmn's from theso considerations. Our earo may not nlways bo kindness.

Tho territory embraced in tho prcsont Stato is u par' of tho "Louisiana Purohaso,'1 which, as is known, includes nil that portion of our national possessions west of the Missis sippi River, oxctptingTexasaud thotor- rltory sinco obtained from Mexico nud from Russia. This immenso domain, known in tho treotics os tho "Colony or Provlnco of Louisiana," was originally tnken possesion of by La S:illo for Franco, which nation divided with Eng land, Spam and Russia tho onttro conti nent of North America. In 1097, nt tho pence of Ryswick, all Europe acknowl edged tho clniin of Franco to tho valloy of tho Mississippi, tho rlchost domain contained anywhere upon this green earth. In 1763, ot tho closo of what is known in our history as tho "Old French War," ond in Europo os tho "Sovcn- yoors War," iranco ported with her sharo of thocontinont; Great Britain re taining Canada nnd tho regions to tho northward, which sho had conquered during tho war; whilo Spain obtained, by cession, thotorrltory wst of tho Mis sissippi. On tho 1st of Octobor, 1800, Spain, by tho treaty of St. Idlefonso, ro trocoded this territory to Franco. By tho tronty of April 30, 1803, Fronco cod ed It to tho United Slntes; in considera tion of which the formor government was to rccoivo tho sum of $11,250,000, and tho liquidation of certain claims hold b cltlzons of tho United States against Franco, not cxccodlngin amount 63,760,009. By net of Congross, approvod Octobor 31, 1803, tho Prosldont was authorized to tako possession of tho toiritory and provide for it a tomporary government. By another of tho samo session, approv ed March 26, 1801, the nowly acquired country was divided, Octobor 1, 1801, into tho Torritory of "Orleans" (south of tho thirty-third parallol north latl tudo) nnd tho District of "Louisiana," which latter was plncod under tho au thority of tho officers of Indiana Torri tory. On tho 4th of July, 1805, under net of Congross, opprovod March 3, 1805, tho "District of Louisiano" was orgnnlzod into a Torritory of tho samo namo, with a govornmont of its own, in which condition it remained until 1812. On tho 30th of April in that year, tho Territory of Orleans becamo a Stato of, tho Union, under tho namo of "Louisi ana" ; and on tho first Monday in Decem ber, by vlrtuo of an net approved Juno 4, 1812, tho Torritory of Louisiana was reorganized nnd called tho "Torritory of Missouri." By an act of Congress, opprovod March 2, 1819, which took ef fect July 4, "Arkausaw Torritory" was formed, comprising tho presont Stato of rkansas and tho country to tho west ward By a joint resolution, approved March 2, 1821, tho "Stato of Missouri," being a part of tho Torritory of that nauio, wa3 admitted into tho Union.
