Acceptingr an invitation from a yachting frlcud to fro on a summer cruise, some years ago, wo found ourselves, one balmy afternoon, sail ing along tho iron-bound coast of Maine, and enjoying the beauty of the scenery, with the ocean on our right, and innumerable island?, some of them bold and rocky, others green and inviting, upon our left. My friend, whom I shall call Dale Drummond, was a man of 35, and had been a sad wanderer since, at 15, he left home to go into the navy m "Midshipman. Though all that knew bim foil that he had a history of deep interest. there were none who eared to ask him of the past, and, excepting that he came of a good family, and at 25 had resigned from the navy to enjoy a fortune left to him, little was known regarding him. 'You run in among these inlands. Drummond, aR though you were in open water,' I said, seeing how, as T thought, recklessly he steered his pretty schooner yacht among the dangerous sunken rnclcs aud many islets that wero now upon every side, for we had headed iu Phore. 'T know these waters as I do my mother's face, and better, for I have never seen her since I was a wee child,' he answered, and after a mo ment continued, as he pointed to a lordly villa a league away: Do you see that mansion yonder, looking out from that forest?' I answered in the affirmative, aud then added : 'A second one, too, a league down the coast.' 'Yes ; in the one I was born ; in the other I had mj' hope for the future dashed to the earth forever.' He spoke hitterlv, and I saw that he was much moved, as he gazed upon the two old houses, both of which, as we drew nearer, seemed crumbled to decay. 'Colonel, we'll drop anchor under the lee of yonder wild-looking island which I remember is said to be haunted, aud, if you care to accom pany me, we will go over and have a look at the old homesteads, for I have not been here for twelve years.' Of course, I was only too glad to go, aud, half an hour after, we land ed on the main shore; and, ascend ing to the clill above, found our selves in what had once been the handsome grounds of a fine old mansion, but which now was deso late and time-worn. 'There is my home ; no one dwells here now, for my father cut me ofl" from my inheritance, and left the place to a distatit relative in Eng land ; and yet, slrango to say, yon der other homestead is mine, for it was left me by the only being I ever loved; but I have not dared come here until to-day.' We stood together, gazing upon the two old mansions whose broad acres joined together about half way between the homesteads, and, being iu a communicative mood, Drum mond went on, iu his easy way : 'I'll tell yon the story, Colonel, though I never speak of the past, as it is sad to think of it, I cau assure you. 'I was born in that old place, as I told you, my father and mother com ing there a year before my birth, aud they were English. 'Of his past, or my mother's, my father never spoke, and I remember him as a dark-faced, stern man of 50, and nearly double tho age of his wife. 'He never went from home, lived iu luxury, seemed to possess unlim ited means, and was a very stem, 6ilent man, while my mother wa a sad-faced woman ; and, up to my 17lh year, when she died, I remem ber she often wept, and seemed ever to have some deep grief at heart. 'Procuring a tutor for me, my father felt that ho had done his duty by me, and 1 was allowed to do just as I pleased ; and I hunted or fished more than I studied. 'One day I went, from a motive of dare-deviltry, alone to yonder island which every one shunned on account of its being said to be haunted by the ghosts of a crew lured to wreck there by a false beacon. 'I found no ghosts there ; but I did find a perfect little fairy, a maiden of 10 years of age, and five years my junior. 'Iler father had lately moved to tho other homestead, you sec there; and having dwelt on the sea shore in England tho little Fidele was a perfect sailor; and alone, in her light canoe, had fearlessly paddled over to Haunted Islaud, which, as you sec, is a mile ftom the mainland. 'I at once made her acquaintance, and sailed her back home, with her canoe in tow, and from that day, children though we were, we were lovers, and together we hunted, fished, sailed aud read books ; for when away from her studies she was as wild as a young Indian. 'A few mouths after our ineetiDg I received my Midshipmau's war rant, aud left home to enter tho navy; but each year I got a short leave; for there was not a naval academy in those days ; and my every visit but infatuated me more with the little Fidelo Claire for such was her name. 'At length I came home when in my 22d year, and then it was I ask ed Fidele to be my wife; for she had grown to be a beautiful maiden of 17, and under a skilled governess was accomplished and refined, tho' her untamed spirit would often break out at restraint. 'Like me she had no mother, and her father, like mine, was a hermit in bis own houee, and I had never met .him, until together we sought him in his library, aud I boldly told him who 1 was, how I had met hie daughter, and asked for her hand. 'His brow grew black as I spoke, and I noticed that he trembled; but be said, in low, stern tones: 'Young man, your father has, doubtless hiddeu from you what he is, or has been, or you would never come here to ask for my child to be your wife.' 'I stood in amazement, aud then asked : 'What do you mean, sir?' 'First, years ago I knew your father; we both loved the same maiden, and he turned her against me, and she became his wife, to die soou after. That I never forgave him, for I knew that he won her from me by falsehood, and then broke her heart. 'After that he left England, and until I met him here, some months ago, I knew not what had become of bim ; but now I know that he bought yonder houe, and lives there in lux ury, upou the gold he gained by piracy.' 'I will not attempt to describe what passed, Colonel, for I gave him the lie direct, and he and his ser vants drove me from his house; but I sought my father, and from his stern lips learned that he had gained his mouey as a Captain iu the slave trade ; that he had wou Col. Claire's intended bride from him, and that she bad died of a broken hoart when she knew flmt he w n Mavci , but he had again married, and my moth er's life also had been made wretch ed by what she discovered of her husband's past. 'So indignant was I toward him that he drove me from his house, and swore that not a dollar should I over have of his, aud he kept his word ; for, at his death, with the ex ception of the mansion, it went to charity as an atonement for his sins. 'When I next came home, after his death, both homesteads ware desert ed, for Col. Claire and Fidele had gone, the servants knew not where, and I then became wretched indeed ; but, alas ! two years after I received, when my vessel was in the Mediter ranean, a letter from a lawyer, tell ing me that tho Colonel had died and left his vast property to his daughter, and she, too, dying, had made me her heir. 'I was astounded, I can assure you, but with tho lawyer's letter came one inclosed from Fidele, saying that she had always loved me, and, dying, had left me her wealth that I might be happy with the wife I had chosen, and, if I loved her memory, to accept her inheritance. 'I resigned from the navy, Colonel, sought the lawyers, and found that my inheritance was a very large one ; I also sought the spot where poor Fidele was buried, and erected above her a monument, and now, after long years of wanderings, I have gotten up courage to come here, and in yonder homestead, left me by the one woman I ever loved, I will live until I, too, die. But come let us go across to Haunted Island, and I will show you the very spot where I first met her.' It was just sunset aB we landed at the Haunted Island, and, making our way among the bushes, we suddenly came to a dead staud-still, for there, not fifteen paces away, stood a wo man clad in snow white. Her auburn hair bung in wavy masses adown her back, her face was darkly bronzed, but beautiful, and her glorious dark eyes were turned upon us with a look I shall never forget, while her slender, graceful form was swaying as though she were about to fall. 'Oh! Heaven nayc mercy! It is Fidele's spirit!' The cry came in mortal agony from the lips of Dale Drummond, and his face was as pallid as the dead, for he was a skeptic in all supersti tious dogmas, and yet before him, as I did also, beheld the one he deem ed dead. 'No, Dale, I am not a spirit, but Fidele Claire in flesh and blood,' and, speaking in low, musical tones, she came toward us, evidently deep ly moved. 'Not dead! Thank God!' And he tottered forward and hold forth Ills arms. But she drew back, saying, sadly: 'No, Dale, that is not my place, but hers.' 'Fidele, what do you mean?' And, seemingly forgetting my presence, he continued : 'None but your image has ever been iu my heart.' 'And your wife?' '1 have no wife, Fidele; nor ever did have.' 'Do you mean this, Dalo Drum mond ?' 'Upon my honor, yes.' 'Ab ! how I have been deceived ! My father told me he was married, and, loving him still, I gave up all for him, aud came here to this lonely place to live, letting tho world be lieve me dead.' She spoke more to herself than to him, and, with her hands clasped, her eyes dowucast ; but at her words ho sprung toward her, and I turned away aud wont on an exploration of the Island, leaving the two together. Darkness came on, and at last 1 retraced my way, but, hearing my name called, went in the direction of the trail, and found the two seat ed before the snug little cottage that had beeu the self-sacrificiug aud beautiful exile's home, and which was most comfortable. Only one, then I heard, was in her secret, and that one was the faithful servant who had charge of her old homestead, and each week he bro't her food and all she needed, and nobly kept her secret. But my romance has ended, kind reader, for, one month after the strange meeting on Haunted Islaud, Dale Drummond and Fidele were married, and, the old mansion hav ing been entirely repaired and re furnished they went there to dwell as soon as they had returned from tlieir bridal tour; and often have 1 visited them, and, in my wanderings around the place, have passed many a thoughtful hour in the fair exile's cottage on Haunted Island. Sutter IVInkiiiK'. We find the following from Mrs. C. S. Iteed, of this vicinity, in a late number of the Nebraska Farmer. As slio realizes zu cts. a pound for butter, her suggestions may prove valuable. She explains her method and hopes "it may Hiiggcst an easier way to some one who is wearily carrying her milk up and down the steps of a warm cellar or cave. "We have a little shed built around the windmill in which is a tank so placed that the water flows through it into the stock trough outside. There is an opening and tube near the top leading out aud an opening at the bottom to draw ofl' the water whenever desired to wash the tank. Tho milk is set in tin cans of twelve inches in depth by eight iu diameter. Tho skimming, churning, working the butter, &c, is all done iu this wind-mill house without taking any weary steps. Whcu there is milk to be warmed for feeding calves, we also have a stove there to do it upon, or to heat water for washing pann, &c. In reference to washing pan it is well to know in this country of scarce fuel, that so much scalding if unnecessary. "Rubbing with the milk will re move all the cream which may have adhered to the pan and with a brush and plenty of cold water the milk may be thoroughly washed from the scams and the pans dried and scald ed iu the Btin. Never use soap in washing milk pans, crocks or churns. Ashes, when necessary, are far bet ter as well as cheaper. "The mill house plan has advan tages over the spring houses here. It is better than to convey tho water to a trough in the cellar because all the water needed for the stock may be passed through the tank if de sired. Being near the stock yard it saves the labor of carrying the milk so far, and is convenient to the con sumers of the skim-milk and butter milk. (This latter fact, Mr. Editor, you will please not mention to the dainty consumers of the butter.) The wind -mill with mill -house around it should be above the corral with pipes leading to the stock trough. Our mill was located be fore our thought of a milk -house was born, aud the situation is the worst possible. Yet the difficulty we feared, of keeping the cream pure so near the yard does not exist. It can be kept from spoiling as long as desired, not being obliged to churn every da' if you have only a quart, as you must unless you use cold water or ice. The butter kept in jars in the tank is always solid; and tho milk for the table, of which most excellent article of diet many farmer's families are deprived dur ing hot weather, is always sweet, cool aud neyer refused. During this very hot weather I put the cream into the churn as cold as the water will make it, which is I think about 50 deg. Great care is taken not to churn the butter until gathered into large lumps aud in washing aud workiug it to baudle carefully so as not to break the grain. After stand ing in the tank a few hours it may be worked a second time and is ready for market." "Pnrsoa I'oiucroy. "Brick" Pomeroy dishes up a sec ular sermon each week to his rea ders. We clip the following ex tracts from one of his latest, his text being, "Strive not in a matter that conceruoth thee not;and sit not iu judgment with sinners :" Do not gab. Do not tell all you know. Deal in somethiug beside gossip. Do not sell chaws that have been chewed or chows that havo .been chawed. Do not play pig and keop your nose nine-tenths of tho time in among the gnawed bones and old dishcloths at the bottom of tbe trough, hunting for something crim inal, scandalous or disrospectable to talk or, talk of, talk of, talk of. If you cau't whistle, don't waste time in puckering. If you cannot dance, keep ofl the floor. If you cannot eilect auythiug for good by your gab, dry up. If nothing good comes from your brain, hold your lips shut a few minutes each day. If you havo nothing but hash for your guests, advertise it as it hash house. If you deal only iu second hand goods, hang out your sign aud be known as a retailer of mental bug-juice, that your neighbors may shun you as a moral stink pot ou stilts. Do not go to markPt with wecd9, the world is too full of them already ; too full of persona whose reputations have been wickedly ruined ty gab lers. Quietly bury the dead. Hold your touguo between your teeth when the devil wants you to wag it only to tho retailing of some oean dal, some escapade, some evideuco of somethiug you cannot understand or understanding, should look over, as God looks over all in charity aud forgiveness. The great objects of life are two fold. First, to belter our own con dition llibiatllj , mi.i.llj, ! a surrounding of comfort thereby proving that we arc the children of "Our Father who art in Heaven," and lhat we are possessed of creative, accumulative power. As we do this we do our full duty to God, tho source of our human existence, and to ourselves. Then let in do all wo can as an overflow, to help others. To assixt those who are struggling. To hide the imperfections of others rather limn to poinl out their warts, stone bruises, scars or to smell of their ulcers. To call the attention of those who are about us to neater, to better, to sweeter, to purer, to more beautifying things than are usually fished out of the stew of mis fortune aud aired on the dirty pitch fork of gossip. The world is about the BAinc year after year. 1 1 is much like au ocean in which men aro struggling to survive; to get ashore. Those who stop in the waters to re late all the scandal and gonsip they know, invent or surmise are stran gled and go down-, while those who keep their mouth shut and strike out may reach the safety point. A. Axon may well be cousldered one of the successful hog raisers of this county, and one of those who cannot imagine why the farmers generally do not pay more attention to this branch of stock-raising. Three years ago he started with three sows. The following fall ho sold twenty-eight head for threo hundred dollars; last fall ho sold thirty-two head for four hundred dollars, and he has forty-five head to market this fall which ho esti mates to bring six hundred dollar, if present prices are sustained, and he will have sixty head left. Hero are thirteen hundred dollars income from hogs. The amount of corn consumed has not been as great as may be supposed, for be allows tbe porkers to run in the weedy creek bends and but little corn is fed till be is ready to fatteu. He has also done woll with sheep. Iu the fall of 1877 he bought seventy-two half Cotswold?, costing two hundred and eight dollars. Since then be has sold sheep and wool to tbe amount of six hundred and fifty dollars, and haa two hundred head remaining, which may be sold any time for seven hundred dollars.
