Clinton, N. C, Oct. lOth.'DO. Mrs.- My Dear Madam: Yours of the olh Inst., duly re ceived. I reirret that I cannot send ou any of Irving works, having given the few copies of that author which Sherman's thieves and cut- hroats did not steal from mo in April, '63 to the Clinton Literary Association. It gives me plea-sure to endor.-e your views as to tho character of the literature that should be placed n the hands of children, for the heart and mind ate greatly influen ced by what wo read. Instead, however, ot works of fiction, with which you seem inclined to furnish urn, I would most kindly, yet earnestly, suggest History and the Jible fcr your son now. Let him read and study both carefully for a few years, and then his taste for ght reading may be indulged with beneficlnl results. But, be careful that he reads only the works of chaste, classic authors, as Scott, Dickens, Thackeray, Bulwer and Disraeli, not lorgetting our own American Cooper, Irving, Haw thorne and Poe.If I had a boy I would rather he tvould read Scott first, for regard hltn as the , brightest, most penetrating and withal kindliest genius that the world has produced in two hundred years. His writings lave charmed and lifted up the world, as a father lifts his child, to a wider view of the world of truth and beauty surinsrimr above, be- ond and around u. No man ever did. more for English literature than "The Great Wizard of the North." Over the mighty flood of opular sensuous sensational litera- tuie, he shows a star ol uurest ray serene.pointing to the highest ideals of human attainment. When your son has tinished Scott, hen give him the other authors named above, and in the order in which they are designated,' and when he has read all these he will have no taste for what classic Doc tor Kingsbury, of the Wilmington Messenger (than whom no North Carolinian has done greater service for pure literature,) properly charac terizes as the "flashy and filthy" iterature of the day, that is doing more than everything else t' cor rupt the youth of America. I find that I have written to greater length than I intended, but hoping that you may accept the crude suggestion above in thespirit in which they have been indited, that they may not be altogether pro fitless to your boy, and thanking you, also, for the compliment of soliciting jny advice in a matter of such vital importance (1 think,) to you and yours, I am, my dear madam, Very sincerely, Your very obedient servant, T.

An opinion has just been handed town, says tne stale cnromcie, oy the State Supreme court in which $10,000 damages are awarded to J. T.

Young was at New: Berne, in this State, and his wife telegraphed him that she was sick and requested him to come to her at once.

L0VETT. Copyright. All rights reserved. As Henry Henshall went into Stein way hall he caught sight of Dr. Watson standing over at the right hand entrance. Their eyes met, and each felt that it was war to the knife between them. "What rascality is he up to now? the young artist muttered to himself, as he followed his mend into the hall. It was well filled. The new violinist had been thoroughly advertised. It was claimed that she was the "greatest of her sex in the use of the violin, and that Ole Bull, Joachim or Sarasati could not bring more clear and passionate tones from the instrument. Henry Henshall read this on ' the pro trramme with a smile."- The concert was well on in the second half, and a woma,n was singing a solo whea they : entered. The next - number was by Schumann and was to be by ths brilliant "Louise Neville." ?- - The hall was so full that HenshaQ'a friend said $hey would stand in the rear, m it wonia to a twicer to go way aowa to toe front of tho house where hi seat nraa, and besides ha wished to rt inain with HertfihaU, -who had only pru-chased r-n adciisaoa ticket.

Tho audience iiad evidently been carried away s'Misa Neville's playing, for they were greet-! lug her appearance for the Schumann number with that hearty clapping of iianas wnicn 13 tno artist's most cordial raid inspiring greeting from the public He glanced at the beautiful girl, -who advanced with a dignified manner to the front of the stage, slightly smiling her J recognition of the greeting which had ueen given to ner. One glance told Lim that Lonise Nev ille was his ideal of the Wagner car. The fair face was that which had haunt ed him eo constantly, waking or sleeping. "Give me your glass for a moment," he exclaimed excitedly to his friend, al most snatching it from hia hand. He levelled it straight at tho girl's face. She nad put the violm under her chin, an the fingers of her left hand were lightly toocmng the strings. She had put tho viollnundcr tier chin. Yes! It was she. Tho dream of the artist soul stood before him, fairer than he had imagined. She was dressed very simply in a gown of white satin, with a large sash of white silk at her slender waist. ' He felt a thrill of delightl . She seemed nearer to him than ever. The purpose which he had sworn in the Wagner car, when it seemed so wild and impossible to carry out, now seemed to the excited ; oung inau a very easy matter. He felt that herpositiou as a public or prof (-y ional performer arg aed some difii ctdty in her family, and he was not slow to think that in thia way tho beautiful girl had sought to escape from the hate ful Dr. Watson. The next moment he was entranced. A strain of music of the most delicious sweetness streamed from her bow as .she lightly swept it over the nut brown in etrmnent which she held so caressingly. Henshall was passionately fond of music. He had heard her wonderful playing in the car, and it had held him in thrall ; but tn at gould not be compared to this. Edna was inspired by the occasion to her best effort. In the inspiration of the moment she forgot all but her art. The" dainty melody of the great German floated on the air Uke a lullaby sung by one spirit to another. As she went on ho felt that some oc cult influence was at work within the girl. Instead of the free, spontaneous movement and the entire absorption in the composition there seemed a tense, nervous agitation in the performer which betrayed itself to him he hardly knew how. Tne tempo was quicueneu, ana the bow seemed to bite into the catgut, while her smooth forehead contracted into a faint frown, her nostrils dilating slightly now and then. Was she going to be" overcome at the moment of her triumph? Could nerv ousness be asserting itself now after she had triumphantly conquered her public. und when tke house was hanging breath lessly on her playing? He felt in himself a sense of discom fort, which he was attributing purely to his sympathy with the young girl. But it seemed to augment. At last by an attraction which was almost againsthis will he felt his head turned to one side, as if drawn there by some subtle influ- pnrr, Not five yards away from him was Dr. Watson. His eyes were bent with growing ear- nestness on the girl's face. They were hot, and seemed almost starting irom - . ...... his head. It was evident tnat tue nate- ful man was concentrating all the poVer of his soul into that look. By his side stood Mr. Crawford. Henry Henshall understood the situ ation at a glance. His own creeping, disgusted sense of being under some in fluence seemed explained by the mag netic attraction of this tievuish man. He knew, too, that his ideal, this nerv ous, high strung girl whole artistic temperament must answer to the faint est impression, was being overcome by that terrible, glance which Dr. Watson was directing toward her.: He felt that something must be done. A little more of this occult violence and Edna - might break hopelessly down . He was her knight, self constituted, to be sure, but with the fond hope that some time he might receive from these 6bf t brown eyes the sign that he was not an ungrateful defender. ' His course was quickly decided on. H walked behind the hateful form of the doctor, and after standing a moment turned around sharply and, as if by ac cident, struck the man in tlie back so heavily that he turned in wrath and sur prise. ...... , l "Oh, I beg your pardon -Dr Ieo. pardi,' he said, with a stress upon the name. . ' He darted a glance at him as he said this that sufficiently conveyed his feel ing. It was to be war to the knife. " Dr. Leopardi looked at him in return with a deadly bate. , ? 'r "You are mistaken, sir, he said hotly. without a . moment's-, hesitation - t'My name ia not Leopardi." . r HenshalT felt that hia ruse had suc ceeded in what he chiefly intended. JBo had broken the fatal ; current which streamed from Drt Watson's eyes, and which was slowlybut surely" unnerving the fair girl who struggled so bravery gaint tho malign tngoence He stepped close to his ctr and biased into it: "if you do not withdraw at one and ccaee persecuting that innocent girl 1 wiJi bring one taat will prove tou are Dr. Leopardi and a thief and a rSlaia. Go. quietly and at once, and I will do nothing more at prrwent, bat otherwise beware, for I know- you mncb tfettet than yon do me. Gof Leopardf a brown face grew callow white and hii eyes looked like an angry snake's. "I will be even with too some day." he said in a low tone of intense re- vengefqlneaa "I never forget a debt Kkethia," . Then he turned and aaid something to Mr. Crawford, wb had been watching nis oangbter too persistently to hare re marked this side scene. After a mo ment apparently of hesitation on, the agitated air left the hall with the doe- tor. What did yon do to that-fellowr a&ed his companion as Henahall re-1 turned to his side.

Dr. Watson and old Mr. Crawford were nowhere in eight, but that did not dispel He waited until the crowd had diaa. pcanii. Then he saw a sltabt furore! a gleam of white satin allowing beneath the long fur trimmed cloak, which he recognized as the same that his ideal had worn at the time he had rescued her from Watson's persecutions. She was so heavily veiled that he conldnot detect a sinirle feature. lie apprSiched her humbfr, and raising his hat eaid-ln the mo6t deferential tones: "Miss Neville, pardon my -again In truding upon youf but it is only in yoyr own regard that I do so.

"She bowed, but Beemed too nervous to speak.

In muffled, agitated tones the number of a west up town street was conveyed to him. He hastily repeated' it to the cabman, and then boldly entemi the coupe and seated himself by her side. The cabman drove off. Henshall's fair companion kept her handkerchief to her face, and seemed to labor uhaer' an agitation that she could with dunculty repress. He made no attempt to converse with her. He Had said as he closed the door of the coupe: "Dear Miss Nellie, you will surely acquit me of wanttof respgCt under the circumstances. You know my one de sire is to be your most, trusted guardian should -you need any. Do not try to speak. My only wish is to see yu safely housed." The agitated girl underwent some vio lent throe of feeling, but did not attempt to speak.

Good night P The next instant she had closed the door in his face and was flitting up stairs. Henshall, with a muttered curse, turned, paid the cabman, then, scowling, took down the number of the house and strode away. The face he had seen was that of the young singer at Louise Neville's concert "They must have changed cloaks," he muttered to himself. Then, as he walked on, despite his chagrin, he had to laugh.
