'I catiuot speak with certainty as to the exact period of time to which the story I ara about to relate apper tains, but it was in those days loug goue by, when this fair laud was divided among many rulers, and during a time when a dreadful pes tilence made the stoutest heart quail with fear. Late ou a wiuter's even ing a young chieftain, accompanied by several armed followers, stopped before the habitation of an aged man, who had sought and found protection for himself and child upon the hospitable shore of Innis fallen. The island was then held by an O'Douoghue, Prince of Locha Tein, a chieftain who was like sev eral others exempt from the pay ment of tribute to the great Macar thy. The leader of the daring baud that had ventured to invade the island of Iuuisfallen was Scanlan ot tho Glen, and the fugitive before whose habitation they stood was ona of the once powerful race of the O'Sullivans. The story goes that the old man had failed to aid The 'Macarthy' in a recent quarrel with a neighboring chief, consequently had broken the tenure by which he held his domains, aud, fearing the vengeance of the mighty monarch, had fied, with all his wealth, to the O'Douoghue for protection. 'The armed party were clamorous in their deinauds for admission, and, as the door of the old man's dwell ing was not immediately opened, they were preparing to force it, when the bars were removed and Scanlad and hia parly were admit ted. Upon their entrance, there rushed from an adjoining apartment a young and lovely maiden, who flung herself into Scanlan's arms, exclaiming iu joyful accents : 'Is it you, my dear Desmond? Ah! I have so long expected you aud watched your coming from the western shore, long after sundown.' 'The words had scarcely escaped her lips when sho started back in terror, for the bright steel of the chieftain's sword caught her eye and sent a chill through her young heart. She looked at the stranger, and. sinking upon a seat, exclaimed : 'Great heaven, it is not Desmond ! "We are betrayed.' True, fair maiden, I am not young Desmond, the handsome hunter of the hills, neither do I bring rich presents to my affianced bride, the beauteous Saova. I am Scanlan of the Glen, and am here to execute the orders of my feudal sovereign, the great Macarthy Mor.' 'To thy chamber, daughter!' ex claimed O'Sullivan, who had been unobserved by tho party; 'I am sufficient, I should think, to do the honors of the house to this base minion of a baser tyrant 'Reproaches are but as words given idly to the wind,' replied the young chieftain ; 'for from thi mo ment neither you nor any that claim your kindred can call house or laud your own. I bear a commission to seize your persons, and your goods are confiscated.' 'You must be madr young man,' vociferated O'Sullivan, raising his lamp to the face of the denouncer. 'Know you not that we are under the protection of the Prince O'Dono ghue, who has already punished more than one proud chief who has dared to molest those to whom he grants protection? Home, boy, nor dare to put this foolish trick upon me, or I may punish you as you deserve.' '"Well, sir traitor, we must e'n put' your threate to the proof; so do your duty, comrades; seize that old dotard ; he is your prisoner, and his wealth the booty due to our liege lord as indemnification for his .re fusal to aid his cause against the Red O'Connor.' 'The followers of Scanlan obeyed, and bound the old man hand and foot, who fancied the whole affair must be a dream, for the proceed ings had been conducted with go much secrecy and quiet that the reality fell like a thunderbolt upon its victim. 'Saova, who had crept to her fath er's Bide during the loud war of words, appeared rooted to the spot, and bent an eye of vacancy upon the mailed figure of the chieftain Scan lan, while her father from time to time uttered cries of agony and des pair, exclaiming, 'Just heaven ! what will become of as?' A question soon answered,- re plied the Chief of the Glen; 'you, old man, as the head of your race, are doomed to die the death of all traitors, and your child, with all her 8 ex bearing your name, or claiming kindred with you, are to be driven from the land.' Great God! drivdn from their hearth and home !' exclaimed the old man, wringing his corded hands. 'Yes, even from this moment.' 'Saoya, on hearing this terrible decree, started from the state of apathy into which she bad fallen, suddenly seized Seanlan's mailed arm with a convulsive grasp, and tixiug her inquiring eyes upon his face she thus addressed him : Young warrior, .you surely can not have the heart to enforce this terrible decree; you will not drive the old man forth to meet the ven geance of an augry tyrant?' 'The fair pleader never looked more beautiful than at this moment; her bosom heaving with contending emotions while from her full stag like eyes shot daring aud determi nation. Scanlan, whose heart was not totally devoid of feeling, appear ed to gaze with interest as he looked upon the lovely advocate, aud was about to reply, when the harsh voice of one ot his followers reminded him that he had yet other duties to perform, and that the orders of the Macarthy mint not be delayed by those intrusted with their execution. 'Right,' said the young chief; 'come, fair maiden, prepare yourself for instaut departure; we will con duct you safely through the moun tain pastes, and once beyoud the district of Eoganacht you will be free from further molestation.' 'He commanded his followers to execute their business with dispatch. Iu vain did the almost frantic Saova implore him to be merciful, and take her life rather than separate her from her aged father. He was deaf to all her entreaties, and, having rudely repulsed her, sho sank senseless to the ground. After plundering the abode of all the wealth it contained, Scanlan and his followers forced the old man from his home. The tumult aroused Saova, and she stood, an altered being before the marauders. Father, farewell !' she said. 'The daughter of an Irish chieftain must preserve her life for a great and noble purpose.' 'Scanlan was al a I039 to compre hend her words, and the sudden change which had taken place in her manner; but her father's eyes bright eued as he read the characters of defiauce and revenge in his daugh ter's face. They were, however, from that hour separated forever. 'Two months from that day the Chief of the Glen was seatpd at the feet of Elliue, daughter of the Ma carthy Mor; she was listening with delight aud attention to the recital of his adventures in her father's ser vice, while his mother, the proud Gromlaith, sat watching them with smiles of contentment. They form ed a charming group; the fair, deli cate girl, clothed in a robe of purest white, her slender waist encircled by a golden zone, was seated upon an ebony chair of curious workman ship; the haudsorae youth, who ap peared almost ou his knees before her, as if in deep devotion before some saint. Elline smiling and hap py in his love, listened as he spoke. Scanlau thought only of the bliss that awaited him, and his happiness in contemplating the fair features of the maiden he should call his own on the morrow. At their eidc, and looking as their guardian angel, sat Gromlaith, exulting in her success of having effected a union which would heal the breach which had for some time existed between her noble race and that of tho Macarthy Mor. Day was fast drawing to a close, the evening perfume of thu sweet spring flowers embalmed the air, and all nature seemed hushed into a holy calm. The little party felt its influence, and silence for a while crept among them, as if they were afraid to break the repo?e of nature. The Chief of the Glen rest ed his head near the lap of his Elline, and at that moment they forgot all but themselves, even the dreadful pestilence which for some time past had, like a scythe, cut' off so many of the chieftains and their followers, sparing iu its dreadful march neither young nor old. At this hour of fancied security the large Gothic door of the apartment was cautiously opened, and a female figure, closely veiled, stood before the happy group. The j outh started to his feet, displeased at being inter rupted in the sweet, but serious, train of thought to which he had yielded, and somewhat rudely de manded the purport of her visit. 'Scanlan, Chicl of the Glen,' she replied, with solemnity, 'is not that fair maiden Elliue, the daughter of the great Macarthy Mor, and your affianced bride?' 'At the sound of the woman's voice Elline started up from her seat and bent an inquiring look upon her lover. She fancied she foresaw that a disagreeable scene wa about to be enacted by some trembling and forsaken girl, and, tearing for her own happiness, she burst into tears. Scanlan briefly replied : 'She is my affianced bride, the daughter of Macarthy Mor.' 'It is well,' said the incognito, in a tone of exultation, and turning to the door by which she had entered caretully closed it. Then placing herself before Elliue she scrutinized her for some time through her voil ; theu, as if thinking aloud, she mur mured pausing between each word : 'Yes, yes ; she is, indeed, handsome, even more beautiful than I had hoped to find her.' 'And what is that to thee?' de manded Scanlan, impatiently. 'What to Hie?' exultingly replied the unknown ; 'why this, Scaulau ol the Glen ! I came to warn you of a danger that threatens you and your young bride; of a dreadful project to dash tho cup of bliss forever from your lips ; it has beeu well conceived, aud will be executed by one who id your deadly enemy.' 'I have no enemy who can injure me, or whom I fear,' proudly an swered the youth ; 'defended by my castle's walls and my good sword, I would bid defiance to any chieftain. 'Your enemy,' replied the un known, 'is but a poor defenselest woman ; one who, iu spite of ram parts aud sword, holds iu her hand vengettuce as inevitable ami certain as the punishment of offended heaven !' 'A horrible thought took posses sion of Scanlan's mind ; it ippeared to him quite unreasonable to fear a woman alone, unarmed, but he doubted not she was a maniac; a sad presentiment agitated him, and with a trembling voice he said, 'Who are you ? What are you ?' 'I am Saova, the chieftain's daugh ter, she replied, with solemn pathos, 'aud what I seek is vengeance lor a father's death!' 'Enough, enough!' said Scanlan; instantly leave this place or my fol lowers shall thrust thee hence!' 'They dare not!' she replied, in dignantly. 'Then I will!' he exclaimed, and. advancing toward her, seized her 1 the arm to drag her forth, but she clung to him with convulsive rage. The struggle was severe, and he had nearly succeeded in his purpose when she demanded to be allowed to leave the castle without force. '1 crave no boon ; let me but once more gaze upon the features of your in tended bride; 'tis all I ask for the deep misery you have caused both me and mine.' 'She advanced with him towards Elline, who had sought refuge in Lady Gromlaith's arms, for she had an unaccountable feeling of dread which she could not conquer. Scan lan himself, while he held her firm ly by the arm, obeyed her with reluctance. It was a moment ol awful silence as Saova stood before the trembling Elline. Slowly she saised the veil which had concealed her features. Then, presenting the youth to his lovely bride, she scream ed aloud : 'Elline Macarty, I here present to you Scanlan, the Chief of the Glen.' The youth instantly dropped the arm be had grasped, Elline fell upon her knees and Lady Gromlaith stood motionless with horror. A loud, fiendish laugh burst from Saova as she exclaimed triumphantly, 'Now Chief of the Glen, where are your boasted ramparts? Where is your good sword to defend you from the v.engeance of a poor, weak w0111.au ? Why stand you all aghast? Why gaze on me as it in fear? 'Tis true, I am pestiferous! and have inoculat ed with the poison of death all those upon whom I have breathed. Look on your urnle; see how ueautitul she is! I was once as fair. Now what am I ? and who made me what I am? Fiend-like, she Bprang upon the object of her hate, clung to him like a serpent, and covered his face aud lips with deadly kisses. During this horrible struggle neither hi mother nor Elline dared approach to assist him ; they saw him writh ing beneath the poisonous embraces of the wretched woman, and could only weep and call for help. At length the vassals came but at the sight of Saova they stood petrified and immovable, not daring to ap proach beyond the threshold. The frightful contest was brought to a close by Scanlan's plunging his sword into Saova's boom. For several days the young chieftain's life was despaired of. During this time the Lady Gromlaith made a vow to bestow a silver lamp upon the blessed Saint Finan Lobhra if her son recovered from bis present danger. She also made a gift to a monastery to defray the expenses of keeping the lamp constantly burning before the altar, both by day and night. The Chief of the Glen recov ered, but the legend says he never afterwards had the use of his right arm, which was the cause of his having the appellation of 'Scanlan the Scathed,' and that Elline fell a victim to the dreadful pestilence which ravaged this fair islaud.' Fifty-three million forest trees are reported to have been plauted in Nebraska. :ortli itelirnoka te tho Front. In the matter of crop prospects that section of Nebraska lying north of the Platte presents a most flatter ing outlook. Au abuudance of rain has demonstrated thit the soil U productive if the moisture is ade quate. That moisture will be mora and more abundant as the country becomes settled thero is no doubt. From Mr. James T. Allan, who haa recently visited Dawsou, Buffalo aud other counties to the west of us, wo learn that everything wears a most favorable aspect. Tho whoat, now being garnered, is well tilled and the averago promises to equal that of any former year. The chinch bugs have done no damage worthy of note; while rust, of which 'there is considerable complaint in some other sections, has not put in au appearance at all iu the section of which we speak. The corn, pota toes, tlnx aud other crops are coming forward rapidly, and Western aud Northern Nebraska will have an immense product for exportation, or, better, for the fattening of stock. Mr. Allan has beeu engaged in gathering aud making arrangements, for specimens to exhibit at the com ing state fair, aud the success which has" at tended his efforts warrants the belief thai we shall have the finest show of state products ever seen within our borders. Farmers havo been visited aud urged to compete for premiums, both here and at ex hibitions iu other states where their prodi.cts will be displayed, and they arc taking hold of the matter with a spirit which augurs well for the state. The Union Pacific Railroad company will have specimens of Nebraska products at all the great (tTi iu the east and south, and the exhibit which our farmers can make will redound greatlv to the interests of this state in coming yeirs. North ern and Westeru Nebr iska, if proper ellbrts are made, will pclipso tho exhibit of any former vear. and from the interest awakened by Mr. Allan ami the great company which he represents, there is uo riik in say ing that thi.s will be done. To show what we can produce will prove the best kind of an immigration docu ment much better than printed milter scattered broadcast with nothing but words to 'iilntaiitiite our claims. What the people wtut to see is specimens of Nebraska srrown products, backed with relia ble pvideuee that thev are such. These it is proposed this fall lo show iu all parts of the country, to an extent arid of a qntlity which will be convincing proof of the produc tiveness and capability of the soil of Western ami Northern Nebras ka.
