Thdrb is n lonely mill, closo beside
tho little hamml ot Udorf, near the
Rhluu shore, hui ween tho villagos of
H?ntel and Ursel, on thu lett bunk be
low Bonn. Tula mill is said to iii.ve
been lim scene ot tim following story:
lt was on u Sunday morning', "ages
long ago, thal tim miller ot inls mill,
and his whole family, went forth to
hear tho holy nines nt the nearest
Church, in Ibo Village of Hersel. The
mill, which wm uiso his rosidonuo,
was lett in ohurgo ol a sorvaut-girl
named llunuchen, or Jenny, ii stout*
hearted lass, who hail long Iii ed with
hun in that Oitpncily. Au infant child,
of nu noe until for church, was left iu
ber charge likewise.
Tho girl was busily om ploy od in prc
1luring dinner for thu return of
UH* muster and bia family, when who
should enter ul! of a .sudden hut au old
.WOOtllOUrl of Lo; s named Heinrich
Bottulor. Ho waa an idle, graceless
fellow, whom the milier liad torbiddon
his house, bul whom .lenny, willi tho
amiable perversity peculiar tu her sex,
only liked, pul'hups, all tho better be
cause Others gave him no countenance.
Siiu was glad lo see bim, and shu told
him so, loo; un.i although in the midst
of her work, ulm not only got him
something io e.ii ut onco, but also
foti ti .1 time to sit down wait him aud
have u gossip, whoo jiu dispatched thu
food she sui before bim. As he ate,
however, bu lot fad his kniio.
.T'ick that up, my lass," said ho, in
a joking way t" tho guod-naiured girl.
"N'a_\, Heinrich,11 sbo ropllod, "your
back should in* moresuppio dian mine,
for you lin vu loss work luiuako ii still".
1 labor an dav loug, and you do
nothing. Hu :, never mindi 'twould
go harn wini me ntl 1 refuged lo do
mole Ulan that lui'you, bad though
you be."
Tills was spoken bali sportively, nnd
half in good caine-.:; tor, kindhearted

tho scapegrace, she noa too honest
and ind lift 11 ions hursulf to oncoui'?go or
approve of idlonosa and a suspicious
.course of life in anyone else, howover
dear to hor. Sue stooped down, ao
.cordingly, to pick up the knife. As
?ho was in tho act ol rising, however,
tho treacherous villain droW a dagger
from under ??is oor.t, and caught her
hy tim nape of ibo neck, gripping her
throat firmly, with bis lingera,to pro?
veal ber sot eil ming the while.
"Now, lass," he said, swearing out
lt bad Orttl? at tho ?ame tune, "where
is your master's money? I'll have
that or your Iii??; BO lake your choice."
Tho terrill ?l giri would fain have
parleyed wini the i lillian, but ho would
hour nothing -do could say.
"Your maxtor's monoy or your life,
lass!" was all tho answer lin vouch?
sated to her entreaties and adjurations.
'.Ci?i?se ?I once." was the only al
ternative hu ofJbrod her; "tho ?:ravo or
th? gpld!"
Shu saw that there was no hopo of
morey at Ills hands; and, as she saw
it, bur native resolution awoko in hor
bosom. Like tho generality of hor
sox, she was timid al trilles; a scratch
waa a subject of fear to her; a drop ol
blood caused her to faint; an unwont
ed sound lilied her soul with foar in
tho night. Bul when lier onergies
vrero aroused by an adequate cause,
?he proved, as her sox has ever dono,
that in courago, iu endurance, in pros
asnee of muid, and in resources for
.very emergency, sbo far surpassed
tho bravest and coolest man.
..Well, well, Heinrich!" she said, re
signedly, "What is tat*be, roust bo.
But if you uko tho money. I shall eren

Tho indian relaxed bli grip and du

all cogout with his cupidity.
"t.'oroo," ?ho said; "qu?okl quick!

Sho tripped upstairs, gally as ti ?ark;
ho followod closely nt bur heels. She
led tho way Into her mailer's bedroom,
and pointed out tho coffer in which his
monoy WM scoured.
"Hurv," sho said, roaching him an

"this will wronch it opon at onco; ami

for tho last livo yours."
Tho ru illa ti wus thrown off his guard
by bur opounoss and apparent uiixioty
to accompany bini. Liko all egotists,
Im deceived himself, when self-deceit
was most certain to ho bis destruction.
"Go lass," was all ho said; "but bo

immediately bioko opou tho cheat, and
was soon engaged in rummaging its
A* ho was thus employed, however?
nb jobbed in tho contemplation ot Iiis
prey, and oagorly occupied in securiug
it on his person, the bruvc-Uourtud girl
stole dowu tho stairs ou tip-too. Creep
ing softly ulong tho passages, she
speedily gainod tho door of tito chain
ber unseen by bim, and likewise un
heard. It wu's but tho work ot a uio
uiout for her to turu thu key in thu
wards ami lock him in. 'i bis doue,
sho rushed iorth lo me outer door o?
tim mill and gave tho alarm.
.?FlyI fly!" soo shrieked to tho child,
her master's little boy, ali infant live
years old, tho only onu within sight or
sound o? lier. "Hy! fly lo father! fly
on your btu! Toll him we snail nil bu

Tho child, who was at play boforo

command of tho brave girl, ami sped
as last as his tiny logs could carry bini
ou tho road by Which ho know his par
ents woiil.i roiurii from church. Haini
chen cheered him onward, and inspir
ed his little heart as lie ran.
'.BlOSS thee, boy! bless thee!" she
exclaimed, in tho gladness of her
heart; "an master arrives in timo, I
will oller up a taper on tho altar of
our blessed Lady of tho Kruutzborg,

She sat down on Ibo stans Hooch hy

Shu glanced hastily up al tho case

that tho alarm wus a falso ono, raisod

child roached a hollow .-.put in Ibo next
held-thu channul of a natural drain,
thou dry with thu heats of sunnnor
sho saw auot her rutilan start up from
tho bod of the drain, and catching him
in his arms, hasten toward tho mill, in
accordanco with the directions of his
accomplice. In a moment she per
ceived her danger, and iu a moment
moro she formed her futuro plan of
proccoding. Ruireatiug into tho mill,
shu doubly lockud aud bolted tho door

shall I leave, my nnutor's house a prey
to such villains,-or permit his property

them, while I have life and strength
to def,-nd it."
Shu hud baroly tiino to socuro hor
solf within, wiic u Ibo ru Iii an from with
out, holding tho haploss child in one
hand, and a loug sharp knife in the
otiior, assailed the door with kicks,
and cursos, und imprecations of the
most dreadful character.
"Confound theo!" ho cried, apply
ing Ibo luulest epithets of which thc
freo-upoakhig Teutonic languages are
so copious; "opon the door, or I'll
break ii in on yo!"
"li you can, you may," was all the
noble girl replied. "Cod is grealoi
than you, and iu him I put my trust."
"Cut the brat's thro.a!" roared the
imprisoned murin above; "that will
bring her to reason."
stouthearted as poor Hannohoii
was, sho quailod at this cruel sugges

wavered; but it was only for a mo

was certain if sho admitted tho assuil

would be robbed. She bad no reasor
to hopo that even tho life ot the in

quently held fast in her resolve te
abide as she ?as while life remained,
or until assistance could reach her.

The nullan laid the infant for a mo
ment on tho sward as ho sought a bou I
for combustibles wherewith to o vent?
lils latter throat. In lois search he es
pied, perhaps, tho only possible elan
destine entrance to tho building. Il
was a largo aperture in the wall, com

In thu moan ti ino lier mind was bus

No sooner said :tu ..one. Doing all

A < i ii ?rism of Cleveland's Criticism of
Certain Loud inj: Newspapers.
{bram the Charlotte Observer.)
A few days ugo thc President wrote
a iel ter to Mr. Keppler, ono of the
editors of I lie New York Puck, in
which lie took occasion to say that thc
newspaper of tho present day was
wilfully mendacious.
Thc denial of thc assertion is being
hurled hack into Mr. Cleveland's teeth
from a thousand presses, from Maine
to Mexico.
It was an unfortunate expression for
the President to use if he really meant
Wayland, in his Moral Philosophy,
asserts thal there is much more truth
in the world titan falsehood.
In tlie everyday newspaper there are
a thousand truths, where there is one
Indeed, SH a rule, editors, correspon
dents and reporter? endeavor to get
facts and publish truths.
A newspaper writer who would do
anything else ought to bc, and would
he, kicked out of thc editorial room of
any respectable newspaper.
Wc do not know what Mr. Keppler
did, nor tlo wc care, that culled forth
the caustic letter from Mr. Cleveland,
We only know that Mr. Cleveland
has gene out of bis way to assail Hie
whole press of the United Stales.
He is Hie last mun in thc country
who ought to do anything of Hie kind.
Thc newspapers made him Governor
of New Y'ork, and
Thc newspapers made him Presiden'
of Hie United States.
The cartoons, of even Puck, were
largely instrumental in determining
tile final result which placed Mr.
Cleveland in thc Whim House.
Au election alwavs is, or ought lo
bc, an expression of popular sov
ereignly, and popular sovereignty in
America is but an expression ot pop
ular opinion.
A political election in this country is
therefore, when successful, a regis
tered minority of thc. voters who have
deliberately come to conchuuons as to
men and principles, as they arc pre
sented by tlic press.
Wc well remember* when nearly two
years asro the managing editor of thc
Observer wrote down inc names of
about fifteen gent leinen who were at

There are three thousand sheriffs in

There arc several thousand more

'l here are thirty-eight Governors of

When Mr. Cleveland goes to sling
ing his caustic irony around ho ought
to remember that "whom the gods
would destroy they would tlrst make

peusatioil while the old Roman myth
ology lias been relegated lo tho shapes
of thc past, thc newspapers ot the
United Stales arc even moro powerful
than tho "destroying" gods two thou
sand years ago.
Tho Kindly Comments of n Lending North
ern Newspaper.
Tho New fork World recently pub
lished a very complimentary notice of
Senator lintier, of South Carolina,
Which will he read with pleasure by
every South Carolinian. Tho World
Senator M. c. Butler is certain to
bOCOine very prominent in tho debates
of tlie next two or three years. Ho is
uno of the ablest ami clearest-headed
men on thc Democratic side. Ile has
never taken very much part in tho
debates, but yet has spoken often
enough to show that ho has unusual
powers as a debater, while he has that
uggrc9?ivo quality and steady courago
which arc so necessary to make a suc
cessful leatlcr. Ho is very quiet and
gentle in his manners. Ho is one of
the best bred mon in tho Senate. Ho
would never begin a quarrel, but
would bo the last man in tho world lo
mu away from one. He has had a
number of very sharp tilts with Sena
tor Edmonds in tlie executive sessions
rf the Senate. It is said of him that
tie has held his own very well against
the tavage thrusts of th? keen-witted
Vermonter. The Senatoria very near
ly fifty years old. Ile waa educated
is a lawyer. Ho lost a leg in the war
>f tho Rebellion, whero he roso to tho
rank of a major-general in tho Con
federate army. Ho was ono of tho
earliest of tho Southorn men to accopt
the results of tho war, and has always
iron a consorvativo. Ho was ono of
thc few whito Democrats in South
karolina who opposed tho Illaok Codo,
which bis Sfato Legislature adopted
loon after it was readmitted to tho
Union. Ho lias always been a peace
maker between tho warlike factions of
Ids siaie. Through partisan misroprc
loutation for a time ho was made to
ipper ? in tho North aa a leader of tho
whites nt thc Hamburg massacre. Yet
it was dearly shown afterwards that
tio wont there only after tho fighting
began and in tho interests of peace.
Through his : ^rsonal efforts alone, a
treat many h i<ocent lives wore saved.
