Contractor McDonald , ot the Chicago
ft. Northwestern extension work from
I'rcinont to Lincoln , Is in this city locat
ing his linal grading camp out opposite
tlin fair grounds , nnd a largo foreo of
men will commence work from this t > olnt
fitv the lirst of Iho wcnk grading northward
ahoul live miles , where work is already
heing pushed with commendable speed.
The grading of yard room and depot
grounds within the corporation will fol
low , and work in securing these grounds
Is occupying the attention of the right of
way parties. Ono station on this exten
sion of the Northwestern has been lo
cated south of Wahoo at Ccresco post-
olllce , near the Saunders county line ,
and presumably ono more station will be
located in Lancaster county between that
point and this city. Advances made to
ward purchasing lands for a town site ,
where the people look for towns to bo
located , nro met with fabulous prices ,
and the farmers who are along the right
of way are preparing lo make the most
of it.
IS IT WANTKllr
S. II. II. Clark , Superintendent Nichols ,
of the Missouri Paoilio , and J. H.McCnll ,
of Plum Creek , Dawson county , have
been in conference in this city the
past dny and it gives nn oppor
tunity to revive n rumor , that
heretofore lias been confined to close
quarters , in c fleet that the Missouri Pa
cific was not going to stay at Lincoln but
had its feelers out for a northwestern ex
tension into now Nebraska liolds. In
fact , close observers of railroad matters
incline to this opinion , and if so , whvnot
strike the Dawson county country , nnd
wli.y should not Mae come down and
talk it over , to be sure. An extension of
the Missouri Pacilio west from the state
capital would , for n hundnut miles , be
through a country already pretty efl'ecl-
ually covered by tlio IJ. & M. , but at Plum
creek a point' would bo found almost
equally distant from tlio 1 $ . & M. Grand
Island extension on the' one hand , and
the 15. & M. El wood extension on the
other sido. Therefore in the pending
struggle to ncquiro now territory , and
especially in the contest for the cattle
trade of the northwest , and the other in
terests in that rich und undeveloped land ,
it need occasion no surprise if the
Missouri Pacific becomes an agirressive
factor , nnd makes of Lincoln only the
half way house on its road.
A PASSKNUEIt WAI I
III a small way has buon waging in the
city tlio last week , the contest being be
tween the B. & M. and the Northwestern ,
and the bone of contention being
the Knights of Pythias excursion train
to Toronto , Canada. General Passenger
Agent Murray of the Chicago & North
western has been in tlio city for several
days ronrusonliiiK his road in the prenii-
hos , and Captain Allen of Omaha , repre
sents the Burlington. The excursionists
will presumably not number over fifty or
sixty , but that docs not lessen the heat of
the contest in the least , and the passen
ger agents Imvo orated to the boys night
and day in committee meetings and ink.
The latest report from the war is that the
Northwestern will take the excursion
party on a rate of pixtoon dollars and
nine cents each , for the round trip , Lin
coln to Toronto and roturn.
LINCOLN'S MUSICAL FESTIVAL.
The second concert of the Lincoln Ora
torio society will bo given at Funko's '
opera house on Monday evening , tlio
-8th , under the direct inuiiagciiicnt of
Professor Baxby , the society's musical di-
reetor.Tho oratorio of the opening will bo
Handel's "Creation , " and the enthusiasm
with which Lincoln singers nnd songsters
Imvo ttikcn hold of the work ciycs the
best promise that the society's second
concert will bo an entire success. The
principal soprano , Miss lUhel Hpwo , of
this city , is a universal favorite in musi
cal circles , and will not fail to please the
most critical audience. Chas. A. Know ,
of Chicago , will sustain tlio loading role
in tenor , and that gentleman's endorse
ments of similar work in other localities
is most fluttering. Mr. Portcous , of St.
Louis , the basso , will sustain Iho solo
Darts in his line with undoubted credit.
The orchestra will consist of thirty pieces ,
Komo eight or ten of whom como from
Omaha for the engagement , and the of
ficers of the society loel assured that no
labor , has been spared that would in any
way tend to the successful rendition of
"Creation , " which , in time , will promote
tlyj object ot tlio society , which has for
its aim n cultivation of taste for tliu best
of sacred music.
FAMILY THOU11LK.
A case of domestic infelicity was illus
trated at n hotel in this city an n von ing
or two ago , in which a husband of tliu
liruto order went into the business of
licking his wife In public. At the request
of tlio woman the police were called , but
when they arrived her obstreperous lord
nnd master had cooled somewhat nnd
bogged oil' from going to jail. Tlio
woman , with n bubo in arms , had come
to tliu city from a point down on the
Atchison & Northern branch , nnd had
loft her husband on account of his worth-
lossncss to make n living for herself , lie
followed her to the city and n partial
reconciliation was ncroed upon , nnd the
man started out in tlio afternoon with
the expressed view of obtaining work.
Instead of work , however , ho obtained
liquor at a neighboring saloon , and ut
supper time ho returned to the hotel
loaded for light and commenced beating
bin wife witli lists nnd witli n chair that
stood conveniently at hand. Tlio mistake -
take made in the ending of Iho aIIair was
when the police failed to take the wifo-
beater to n eoll in the cooler nnd give
him thirty days on broad and water and
employment for the city , it character of
punishment that nt best is too lenient for
that class of characters.
HOUR A1IOHT Till : EXCUHSION.
President Correll , of the State Press
association , prior to returning homo ,

forts for the trip to Salt Lake and Den
ver. If the number so , or anywhere

Plillnilclpliia Press : "Oh , that's nothln' ;
ho can do ( tetter tlmn tlint. .hi t' wait n
miniito an' you'll sco htm walk back
ward. " Those remarks were made by
the gentleman who wields an oyster
knifu in a well known Sansom street
house , and they wore : ti > plli > il to a small ,
frisky , black-and-white kitten. The kitten
was practicing foals ot half ncing on the
iron foot-rail that ran around the bar. The
creature kept its tail switching from side
to side to preserve its equipoise , and after
walking forward for u space , actually did
start backward. The stops were taken
with great earc , but presently one foot
slippml and the acrobat tumbled.
"Antonio ain't n circus eat , " said the
oyster ononor , "but ho knows enough to
bo in a dime museum. Where did ! gel
him ? Down on the wharves. IIu has no
education except what he's picked up , but
bo's got moro sense than man.y people that
come in hero , lie just lives on oysters-
cries for 'em and cats 'cm all tlie time.
The funny thing is tnat he won't have
'em any way except on the deep shell.
Antonio comes from a race of oyster-
lovin'cats. "
"That cat is an oyster-fed chump to
Old Delmonico's , " said u bystander.
"Know Old Delmonico's ? No ? Well ,
you're a dead outsider. The Old Del-
monleo saloon stood at Ninth and ( . 'host-
nut , on ground now covered by the post-
ollieo. There was an enormous eat there
which was as well known to the rounders
as even the 'night hawks' or the roughs
who in those day.s made that locality
notorious. The oat ww full of tricks ,
and allowed nobody oxeopt the bartender
to touch him. One of his favorite feats
was to pick up a silver quarter from the
smooth marble top of the bar. Ot course
he could not lake it up in his mouth , as
it wonjd lie too Hat on the stone's sur
face. So ho would carefully push the coin
along with his feet unli.l it projected over
the edge ot the marble , when' ho would
catch it between his foropaws. and ,
squatting on his haunches , would hold it
up fcr inspection. Ho was fond of prom
enading up and down the narrow shelf
back ot the bar , where line fancy glass
ware was stacked up many tiers high for
ornament , and lie was never known to
break a glass or displace an article. "
A Hrlulit Jojj.
Popular Science Monthly for June : " 1
was in the habit of giving bones to my
poodle Alouston ilurmjr dinner , and ho
would go into the yard to gnaw them.
\ \ hen the bone wag too large for him , 1
would get mi aim-go out with him and
split it before his eyes witli a hatchet.
One day Mouston , after having gone out
with his bone as usual , came back , bring
ing it in Ins mouth , llxed himself in front
of mo and wagged his tail. 1 ordered him
back , but lie persisted in staying where
he was. Finally i thought of what ho
wanted and arose , while the animal in
dulged in leaps of satisfaction. The
trouble was that the bone was too largo
for him. Now , when I call to mind the
expression of the dog when ho showed
mo the bono without getting an answer
from me. 1 could not help thinking that
he must at that moment have had a very
poor opinion of my understanding. "
It is evident from this incident that
Mouston know c.xp ieitly that the bono
would be easier to manage if it was split ,
and that 1 alone had means of splitting
it ; and ho had a clear and precise idea in
anticipation of what lie expected from
me. Finally , ho manifested his desire tome
mo by the only means within his power.
How much better could a deaf-mute do
than he did ?
lint it is ono thing to think by resem
blances and another tiling to think by
symbols. A story was recently published
by M. Dubuc , of a pointer'which had
learned after a few years that its master
wont hunt.ing on Sunday , while on the
other days he went to business , and M.
Dubuc concludes that the animal had
Jcarned to count up to seven.
The conclusion is not legitimate ; it
may oven bo said to bo wrong. The dog
distinguished Sunday by sonic features
that wore peculiar to it ; by the move
ments about the house , the behavior and
Sunday dress of the servants , the dross
of the master , or any one or more of a
number of things that make Sunday
dill'orent from the other days of the week ;
but wo may say without contradiction
that it did not count seven.
Wo ourselves , if wo were restricted tea
a lifo absolutely uniform , would not bo
able to distinguish the seventh day with
out niemotcelinin aids , and , as a rule ,
wo seldom recollect the day or the date
except by the assistance of intrinsic cir
cumstances.
Stories About Snakes.
CIIAKMINO SNAKHS.
A traveling snake-charmer says that it
is easy to win the conlidcnco and nflcc-
lion of n youthful boa or anaconda , as
they are not venomous or vicious , and
can only exert their power of crushing
by getting a purchase with their tail on
something that will oiler sullieient resist
ance after they have completely coiled
themselves around tlio limn or the body
'
of their intended victim. If surprised o'r
annoyed they may bite , but can done
no serious harm thereby. Their tongue
is as soft and slippery as velvet.
A TKIO Ol' ENOItMOUS HATTI.KSNAKES.
Andrew J. Shores , of Shefchequin town
ship , Pa. , recently cut down u very tall
hollow tree on his farm. In chopping it
up after it foil ho discovered an enor
mous rattlesnake crawling out of the
trunk , fifty feet from the butt. The snake
was killed. At the first stroke of the ax
afterward two other rattlers crawled out
at the same spot. They wcro both killed.
These three snakes were the largest ot the
kind over known to imvo been killed in
northern Pennsylvania , which upsets the
long-maintained theory that the common
rattlesnake never grows over four feet in
length. One of the snakes killed' by
Shores uninsured six foot ton inches , the
second six feet eight inches , and the third
live feet nine inches. They had forty-two
rattles between them.
A IIUOB ItATTIXSNAKE KILLED.
At an early hour the other morning ,
near Ituflnlo , Mo. , when the harvest
hands were entering the wheat field of
W. S. Hlco , they came in contact with a
huge rattlesnake which was concealed in
some fallen grain near by the entrance to
the field. The reptile , in its angry mood
over being disturbed , sprang into the
crowd with all the ferociousness of n
tiger , and it was only after a desperate
fight with fence rails and stones that the
snake was overpowered and killed , and
had it not been for the timely warning by
the peculiar hissing noise of this specie's
ot snake some of the men would have
fallen victims to the poisonous monster ,
Atter the snake had been killed it was ex
hibited , and measured in lentrtti tivo feet
ton inches nnd ton inches around the
body in the largest place. It is believed
to bo the largest of this kind ever captured -
turod in the state , and will stand fair with
any ever found in this country.

I'aycttoCounty ( Onio ) Republican : The

survey this tract of land until the grass
was mimed off it because of its detested
inhabitants. Thonuriof last week Hooded

struction of the1 late storm came upon
their ground , buf no sooner had they
stepped upon it than they were greeted
with a chorus of hisses , and were the tar
gets for nn almost innumrrablo number
of snakes , but fortunately they were
heavy high-lop gum boots and suffered
no injury , and it is needless to say they
vacated that place in short meter. They
returned in a few minutes armed with
heavy clubs and commenced their work
of extermination , which took them fully
a half day. When they had finished they
were well nigh given out , and had Killed
by actual count -473 snakes , which when
piled together wcro three and one-half
feet high. They wcro of every species
known in this part of llio country. One
rattlesnake anout three feet long had
nineteen rallies on it. A black snake sK
feet long , a copperhead four feet and a
water moccasin Iwo feel long , and as
thick as ah ordinary man's arm at the
wrist , were among the largest killed. It
was atougJi experience , and one Hie men

regretfully wished tor a rod and line ,
having loft my taeklo back with the bag-
gngo. Governor Crosby spoke up , saying
that ho had brought one of his rods along ,
and in a moment moro I had it in hand.
I rigged it as fast as possible , and , taking
a fly from my hut , soon had everything
ready for a east. Turning to the presi
dent 1 said : 'Hero , you take that trout in.1
'O no , ' lie replied , stepping back. 'This
is tlio Sabbath. I couldn't think of
handling a rod to-day. ' I stopped up to
the brink of 111 overhanging rock , " con-
tinned the senator , "and made a very
poor cast. I pretended that I could not
get the line out. Arthur is the most ex
port lly-lishornian I ever saw , except
\Vado Hampton , and ho is 3ustly proud
of Ids skill. After several more feints I
again turned to the president and said :
' 1 am not able to east that far , and will
have to got you to send that fly over for
mo. ' Ho took hold of the rod. and after
ono or two efforts put the lly in just the
right place. It was a long cast. In an
instant the noble trout darted for the
bait , and with a skillful turn of the presi
dent's wrist ho was hooked. 'Hero , Vest1 !
shouted Arthur , holding the rod toward
mo , 'you must land him , for I will not. '
I took llio rod , " concluded the senator ,
"and in about twenty minutes landed tlio
trout , which weighed three pounds. "
THE VOKACITY Of THE CATFISH.
Senator Konna tells a story which illus
trates the voracity of the catfish. He says
that on a ctjrtiiiii fishing excursion up on
Now river , in West-Virginia , ono of the
party caught tlueo- catfish , each several
sixes larger than the other. As it hap
pened , the 1 argent yvas caught first , the
next in mzo secoml and the smallest last ,
and they were slriujg in that order and
placed in the water , , .Upon removing the
string it was fou'nd .that the second iUh
on the string had attempted to swallow
his smaller brother , and while ho was per
forming that feat the big fellow at the
bottom was ongago'u 5n swallowing both
the others. Konnu'declares ' that anybody
who knows tiny thing1 of the greediness of
catfish will readily believe this story.
A SHOWIJK OF FISH.
At Wyoming , i Ohio , on Juno 10 , a
shower of fish foil during the rain. The
school children pu.kcd | them up by the
bucketful from the sidewalk. They were
several inches long.
There is really nothing strange about
this shower of fish , as angle worms , fish ,
etc. , are often caught up into the clouds
by revolving storms , and then dropped
again many miles from the plaen whore
they were taken up , Small fish have
often been lound in puddles of water in
village strcoU , to the astonishment of
people who wore unacquainted with the
phenomenon.
A FIOHT BETWEEN A HAWK ANU A FISH ,
S. P. Causey , of Macon , Gn. , caught a
largo fish on a trot line , While the ilsh
was swimming at the top of the water
nnd endeavoring to escape , a hawk
poitnccd upon it. The hawk in some way
got the hook fastened in its beak. Then
u struggle ensued , the fish trying to dive
downward with tlio hawk and the hawk
trying to lly upward with the fish. After
a long light between tliu two , the hawk
wns killed by some men who had been
watching the struggle.
A KlUllT WITH A. SHAKK.
Chico HodrigucTi , a fUheriu.iu of Santn
Cm ? , onught ft shark in a seine when
about , three miles from shore. The shark
made several drulu-9 at the ii.-Oiorinan nnd
nearly destroyed hlc boat. After n long
nnd dangerous light Rodriguez reached
the Santa Cruz wharf with his lively
freight struggling in his wake. The
shnrk welched A.WX ) pounds and yielded
two barrels of oil.
SALMON IK ALASKA ,
In Alaska the salmon jam the estuaries
nnd inlets so that the lisa cannot move at
nil. " 1 have seen , " says a writer in the
American Angler , "the outlet of Lake
Coring , which i a rivulet two miles long
nnd two rods wide , connecting the salt
water with the fresh , so choked with
living salmon that if a plank were laid
across their porlrudlng backs a man
could walk across dry shod. One can lift
them out witli his hands until he it tired.
It is almost impossible to thrust a sneer
or a boat-hook inlo llio mass , and , of
course , n fish miisl come out whenever it
is withdrawn. Dears take their opportu
nity to s > coop thorn out with their great
paws , and when they have regaled them
selves to satiety they retire to the adja
cent thicket for a dessert of berries ,
which grow there In great abundance
and variety. Of course a great many
salmon get into Iho lakes at every tide ,
but after each recession multitudes are
stranded , of which tlio lustiest flop back
to the ocean , while llio maimed and hap
less remain dead and stranded on the
denuded rocks. "
A KENTfCKY KISIHNO 1'AltTY.
Louisville Courier-Journal : Major
Helm : "Talking about fishing , I recently
had the greatesl luck in Clover creek t
ever had in my life. Wallace Gruello had
occasion to go to Hrockinridgo county on
official business , and 1 accompanied him
as far as Clovernort. While lie was gone
back in the hills , Sam Hovious and L
rowed four miles up Clover creek to fish.
Well , in four hours'time 1 caught twenty-
live of' Ihc prettiest bass you e or laid
eyes upon. The largest weighed over
four pounds and the smallest a pound
and ; v half. Everybody in vhe town said
it was the most remarkable luck they
over heard ot. "
*

Wallace Gruello : "Do I know any
thing about Helm's fishing in Clover
creek ? I know all about it. Ho and Sam
Hovious went up the creek in u skiff
at 'J o'clock in the morning and llshcd
until noon. The only bite lliey got was a
sucker about six inches long , that Helm
partially hooked and milled out of tlio
water , Gut it got awny from him. Hnss ?
There never was u bass in thai creek.
Their bad luck was probably owing to
the fact that Amos Donne stole the
whisky Ihoy look along for bait. "
A Spider's Telephone.
While a gentleman was watching some
spiders it occurred to him to try wTmt of-
iect u liming fork would have on the in
sects. He susjeeted ) that they would re
gard the sound just as they were in the
habit of regarding the sound made by a
lly. And sure enough Ihoy did. He se
lected n largo , ugly spider that had been
feasting on flics for two months. The
spider was at ono edge of its web. Sound
ing the fork , ho touched a thread at the
other side of the web , ami watched the
result. Mr. Spider had the buzzing
sound conveyed to him over his telephone
wires , but how was he to know on which
particular wire the sound was traveling *
Ho ran to tlio center of the web very
quickly , and felt all around until ho
touched tlio thread against tlio other end
of which the fork was sounding ; then
taking another thread along , just as a
man would take an extra piece of rope ,
he ran out to the fork and sprang upon
it. Then ho retreated a little way and
looked at the fork. Ho was puzzled. Ho
hud expected to find a buzzing lly. Ho
got on the fork again and danced with
delight. He had caught Iho sound of Iho
lly , and il was music to him. It is said
that spiders are so fond of music
that thev will slop their spinning to
listen , and : i man once said that when ho
retired to his room for quiet before din
ner and played the llute , large spiders
would c.omo onto the table and remain
quite still , "running awny as fast as their
legs coniii carry them" directly ho had
finished.
Mosqiiltons and Unttlcflnnko Poison.
Mew York Medical Journal : The fol
lowing story comes from Florida : A man
living in the neighborhood of Tampa was
bitten on the leg by a rattlesnake. A
doctor was at once sent for and the leg
was bandaged tightly above the wound ,
although it was exacted that the man
would die before medical assistance could
bo procured. The leg having been bared
for Iho application of the bandngo was
attacked by mosquitoes , and when the
physician finally arrived ho found the
man in good condition , but tlio ground
around where ho lay was strewn with
dead mosquitoes. Our informant , who
overheard the foregoing story lold by an
"old fashioned doctor" on a railroad
train , said that tlio narrator remarked ,
"It was rather hard on the mosquitoes. "
and then ho added in a rollectlvc sort of
way , "I presume the man's lifo was
worth saving.
Mosquitoes Tlint Kill Bears ,
Victoria Times : J. A. Johnson , the
well known mining expert , returned
from Alaska a few clays ago. "Noxt to
the rich ore , " said Mr. Johnson , "what I
struck the most forcibly was the mos
quitoes. Why , sir , they kill the bears.
Now , it seems strange that a musqiiito
could kill a bear , but this is tlio way it is
done : The bears come down from the
hills into the marsh lands lo food on roots
and berries a sort of cranberry found
there. As soon as they got comfortably
to work the mosquitoes attack them , nnd
go for their eyes. The boars got up on
tlioir hind logs lo fight thorn off , ami sink
into the swamp. The mosquitoes , which
uro of a most extraordinary size , keep at
thorn until they arc totally blind , and
they have thorn completely at their
mercy. I have seen ever n dozen bear
carcasses in llioso swamps positively
killed by mosquitoes. "

A STRANGEIFRENOH STORY.
I once knew a happy and peaceful
home It was > provided wllh the
world's-good * as nol tohavetniymnlrrlal
cares : il posiejisqd too little to be im
portuned by ambitious desires. The man
worked gravely by the side of his smil
ing wife. Her smiles were often coupled
with Mlent tears. If they had any
sorrows it was not known. They received
but few visitors , nud the people wilh
whom they associated were awed by the
grace cf the ono nud the intelligent wit
of the other.
Strange to say , this couple , so much
admired , wcro envied by none. The
quiet and peace which surrounded them
acted as n barrier against envy. I
longed to know the secret which * I felt
existed beneath this apparent happiness.
"What is Iho skeleton that hides in the
closet of these young people , " I often
asked myself , "that I heir happiness
should be so sweet , and yet so retiring
and so timid ? They seem to have no
cause of remorse or mourning , but they
must have some fooling or sense of in
herited misfortune. "
1 loved them , and they had so great
conlidcnco in me that my curiosity be
came embarrassed , nnd 1 would never
have known how to penetrate their
secret if fate ono day had not brought on
an abrupt disclosure.
One day I was dining with them , ac
companied by a friend a young lawyer
from one of the cities from the south of
Franco , where he had announced him
self as a candidate for a sent in tlio
chamber of deputies. The campaign
Promised to bo a hotly contested one.
My friend's opponent was a rich and in
fluential person of Iho place. Ills name
had not been mentioned , and the young
couple , who had migrated themselves to
1'aris from that same southern oily , were
greatly interested in tlio conversation of
my friend ; and when , carried away by
his enthusiasm , he exclaimed :
"I shall certainly , In good time , cut
down from his great height that infernal
1'erpigiiollc. Tlic aired rascal , at sixty
to to "
As .soon us that name was mentioned
by my friend , the young husband's hand
which hold his fork began lo tremble and
the young wife's eyes began to dilate.
1 was tempted. Now was my chance
ami 1. perhaps cruelly , said :
"How will you ? "
The husband ami wife both restrained
a forbidding gesture , yet half made il.
"Oh , Unit will bo easy enough , " s\Ul :
the lawyer ; "all I shall have to do is to
ivfer to llio Gazelle des Trlbunauxof the
year IfliO. and cause lo bo ropnblished
adventures of his brother and nephew , "
"What have they done ? " 1 asked.
" Imvo done is "
"Well , all they
He was interrupted by a cry from the
young woman , wiio saw her husband
throw himself backward in his chair as if
about to faint , and beating the air with
both his hands us if lo keep back a
spooler.
I arose and look Iho young man in my
arms. The lawyer , who desired to be a
deputy , confused , discountenanced , know
not what to do or say. Ho apologetically
murmured : "Excuse mo ; I did not know
1 could not anticipate I"
Those unmeaning words , I thought ,
wcro not made to encourage the young
man , but , contrary to all my expecta
tions , they acted in such a manner as to
recall him to his senses ; ho quietly disen
gaged himself from my arms , shook my
liand , aud gave me a look of gratitude ;
thon. placing his elbow on the table with
an energetic movement , uttered llicso
words in a kind and trcniuling voice :
"You have no excuses lo niako , dear sir.
Yon surely could not have Known , could
not have anticipated , how far your threat
would reach , i am the grand-nephew of
Mr. Pcrpignolle , and consequently the
son and grandson of those whoso memory
you wish to invoke to combat the aspira
tions of my grand-unclo. "
The lawyer appeared greatly surprised
and evidently regretted the turn affairs
had taken.
" 1 pray you , sir , " said the candidate ,
"think iio more of what I have said ; I
would rather eivc up my candidacy than
carry out my idle threat. "
' "ihank you , sir ; but I cannot permit
you to make any sacrifice on my account ;
and now 1 owe nn explanation to my
dear friend hero , which 1 know ho must
expect. "
Ho grasped my hand. I protested. I
called in vain upon his young wife to aid
mo in my uii'icavors to prevent him from
speaking. Instead , she resolutely , calmly
and sweetly imprinted a kiss on his fore
head and said , "Speak , my love. "
"Know then. " began the husband , "my
grandfather and my father , who were
largo farmers in the environs of A. , after
many dissensions , discussions and quar
rels had occurred between them and a
near neighbor , they associated them
selves ono day to have an abominable
revenge , and at night.noisclesily making
they way into their victim's house , they
brutally murdered him , even under the
eyes of his wife , and they further exer
cised their brutality by bindinir her to a
bedpost : then they sot fire to tlio house
and escaped , forgetting to free tlio hope
less woman who could have denounced
them. Horrible , is it not ? ly ! some un
known chance Iho poor woman succeeded
in freeing her limbs of tlio cords that
bound hor.aml she made her way through
the flames , crying out as she reached the
air. 'Help ! Help ! Murder1 !
"It was a great trial in those times.
The testimony of tlio wife of the mur
dered man was overwhelming. My
grandfather confessed his crime. My
lather , remembering his wife and child ,
refused to confess , but my grandfather's
confession condemned him. They were
sentenced to deatli and oxccutod. Yet ,
as until then they had been greatly
esteemed and rcspeoled , they were fol
lowed to the scutlold with some show of
pity , and the executioner , his work be
ing done , immediately resigned his olllce.
"My mother died ol griof. My grand-
unclu accepted the shame ; but , relying
on his good name , hold himself upright
before the world. Ho look care of mo ,
orphan that I was , but ho could not in
still mo with his courage. The pity with
which i was surrounded overwhelmed
mo , 1 was placed , under the assumed
name 1 now boar , in ono of the colleges
in Paris , and when I issued from its doors
1 was paralyzed by the lour of tlio isola
tion in which I know I would bo thrown.
I imagined that my true nnmo could be
road in my face. What should 1 do ? 1
thought often of death as a relief , and
when gloomy despondotthoughtsnssailed
mo , oven then I hud an inexpressible desire -
sire to feel the presence of a loved and
loving ono. i fell that il was terrible to
bo hold responsible for the crimes of my
family , and 1 hoped lo meol a heroic
woman who could pardon my birth and
beslow as much love on mo as the
amount of mitred expected and dreaded
lo receive. I mistrusted providence , for
that woman I have found. 1 have hur
hero ; she given mo moro happiness than
a human being lias a right to Imvo : but
she cannot prevent two specters at times ,
like to-night , from appearing and cast
ing their awful shadows across my sight.
This is my secret. "
We hud listened U ) this recital with an
emotion that frnzo our blood and burned
our hcarls , Wo thought all was over ,
but lo our surprise Iho young wife now
began , in soft , cad tones :
"You have heard hisstory , gentlemen ,
but he has not told you mine. It is tor
me to narrate it. 1 , also , am an innocent
victim , more isolated from the world
than ho. I know the history of the
I'ernignollo family. My father often
sadly spoke of it. 1 pitied the orphan ; I.
upon whom another fatality rested , nnd
which weighed me down , I knew ho
bore an ussuim-.d name , and when I first
mot him ho must liuvu detected in my
look an appeal to that brother hi mis
fortune which ho understood , nnd he
dared to speak to mo It did not tnko
long for lo'yo to lake possession of our
lipnrls. And when the time onino for
mutual oxplalio'is , whoii he told 1110 his
true name , which I already know , I * olt

the daughter of the man who rosljcrHHt
his ollico after the exeo'uUon'"bf th
rcrpicnolloB. father and son. The hek
of the assassin is now married to th *
daughter of Iho executioner ! "
She was grand and full of sorrow , ot
innocence , of dignity and of love as film
uttered these words.
It can bo belter Imagined than u -
scribed into what state of mind wo were
thrown while listening to this fnmlly
history , which I certify to bo absolutely
true.
true.The oppressivesllonco which followed
wat broken by the husband snyir.g :
"This is why we love ono another with
n tenderness unknown lo other. * ; this i.1
why two outcasts have become united ifl
n love which became stnmgthoncd by
the reprobation of the world , but It w
also why there exists something like R
religious palpitation at the bottom Of
our love. "
lie spoke truly , 1 have never known amore
moro satisfied uouplo than they , who ,
while having a secret .sorrow , nuror per
mitted it to sour the sweetness of their
life. That sorrow seemed rather 'to
stimulate their love and make it Instltig
even beyond the grave , extending into
that eternity whore love and Impp
alone abide , nnd where the stains of thte
world are washed away forever.
