A* lie we decidedly journalists of the pro

cash system in our business. The neglect of
quite &'number of oar patrons to pay up prompt

US .tp adopt this course. Time and experience
has tally proved to our satisfaction that the
credit igrstem will not work with newspaper
publishers. From this date no paper will be
sent from this office, unless paid for in advance,
ftndat the expiration of the time paid for, if
not renewed, will be promptly stopped. This
arrangement does no injustice to our patrons,
.while it will protect us from the impositions ,of
soulless scoundrels, and enable us to devote
more attention to our paper.
Recognising, the principle that contracts to
he satisfactory should be fraught with mutual
benefit to both parties, and as money in large

You suit me anyhow, and you know

with a smile, at the pretty face puckerted
up in its affectation of demureness. But
he was not to bo driven from his point,
and he resumed, gravely, after a pause,
“The time has come, Susy, when I feel J

to my suit. You have trifled with iny
earnest feelings long enough. T have

“Shake them off, then, Charley!” in*

“ I defy you to do it.” ' ; ’ |
“ I cannot, Susy, and you know lit,” re
plied the hapless lover, impatiently.” 1
/‘ That being the case,” said Susy, “ take
my advice—wear them gracefully, ajnd

The young man turned away, and walk
ed silently up and down the room, evi

Susy, meantime, looked out of the win
dow, and yawned. Charles continued his
moody walk.
“ Oh, what a beautiful bird is on the
lilac tree!” cried Susy, suddenly. “Do
come and see it.”
Oharles mechanically approached the
window and looked out.

laying her hand on his arm, and looking

Susy s'peut thu. rest of the .day in tears.
Early mqnung the bustle of de
parture Busy .was going fo accom
pany her-Mdowed and invalid mother on
a top for her health'/'
_. ■' A® ddj ihoiifed the wharf and descend
ed &om the carnage, Susy’s "eyes made
themselves busy searching tor ouewished
fdriade; but it was nowhere to he seen. *
- Thesteamboatlay pantingand puffing,
seemingly impatient' to he let foosa.—
Susy’s mother, aided by thewetyantman
who accompauiod them, had already' cross*,
ed the gangway which lay between the
wharf aijd lhe boat,'and SusywasreJuo
tautly following, when the sound pf a
voice behind her—the very voic&she was
longing td hear—-startled her. - She turned
to look around, and, missing her footing,
fell into the water.
Another instant, and Charles had lain
off his coat, and, calling out loudly, “-Tell
the Captain not to allow the whdcl Xo
and to lower me a rope!” he sprang into
the river.' Bat of heryrhom he Was risk
ing his life to save, he was unable tp see
any trace.
Judging that the current of the river
might have carried her a little forward, he
swam around the wheel, but still he saw
her not, and despair seized his heart as he
conjectured that she might be under the
boat. He strained his eyes to sec through
the water, and at length far be
low the surface, what seemed the end ofa
floating garment lodged between the wheel
and the rounded bottom of the boat.
If this were indeed the unfortunate girl,
the least movement of the wheel must in
evitably crush her, and Charles, in his
horror, fancied it was already beginning
to turn. He dived and clutched at the
garment, but missed it. He rose panting,
and almost exhausted; but scarcely wait
ing to get breath, he again plunged below.
This time his efforts were rewarded with
success, at least so far. tliat he was able to
bpinj; Susy’s form to the surface of the
water she seemed totally lifeless. ’
Charles was now so nearly exhausted
[independent in everything.}
that he had only sufficient. presence of
mind left to clasp Susy convulsively to
him while he kept himself afloat by held*
ine onto-the.wheel, . , ,
Bot Gas, Ids last hope ofsupport, seem*
ed also to .hul him soon, as he perceived
tl»t was now really beginning to; torn
slpwly round. a desperate effort he
struck his foot against one of the paddles
so as to push himself as far from the dan
ger as possible. As he did so something
touched his head, and he grasped a rope.
New life seemed now ififused into him. —
He gathered all bis energies, and fastened
the rope round Susy’s waist~cdns6ions
ness then entirely forsook' him. In the
meantime witnesses *of the scene, after
giving diaries’ instructions to the cap
tain, had watched-his struggles and exer
tions with breathless interest. The friend
ly rope had been flung to him again and
again, hut in the etoitoment of his feel
ings, and his semi-insensibility, he had
been iiioapable of availingvhiroself of the
offered aid. At last, perceiving that he
was quite'exhausted, and -must inevitably
soon letgo hishold on the wheel, and
then probably sjnk to rise np more, the
captain judged it best to run the risk of
moving -off, so that a small boat could be
sent to ths rescue.. /
The. result of this hazardous experiment
Vas successful. rinsed i>y means
of a rope, and a boat reached Charles in
time to save Him also. .
Both sufferer?'were t?ken on board the
steamboat, which now rabidly moved off
to make up for lost time."
And tbiri) when our hero regained bis
consciousness, jbe found himself many
miles from home. Of course his first anx
ious inquiry was for Susy, and when in
formed that she was rapidly recovering,
his' happiness seemed complete. He show
ed his contentment by turning over, and
falling into a deep, quiet sleep.
Abput sunset a message came to him
that Miss B-—-r- desired to see him.
-fie found her lying .on. a sofa in the
captain’s state room, which bad been given
up to her.., She looked very pale, and
somewhat suffering, but she held out her
baud to-him very gratefully, while the
teats stood in her eyes.

word of thanks, 44 1 want to. see a clergy

“I and see,” said .Charles, mov

“Thai, I am going to die?” said she,
anticipating hun. 4 ‘ No,, Charles j but I

Charles went, and soon returned, ac
companied by tjife minister.
44 1 thank yon, sir, for coming tome,”
said Susy to the latter, as he entered. “ I
have a strange request to make of yon.—
Would you object, sir, in the presence,
and with the consent of my mother, to

If the minister was astonished at this
request, Charles was'infinitely more

It - is needless to say how this discussion
ended. The reader has already 'divined
that -Charles continued his Journey, and
thus, in, the course of one eventful-day,
he risked a life, saved a life, made in im
promptu marriage, and set outrun a most
unexpected wedding trip.
The Conductor who was discharged
from the employment of one of the Ohio
railroads, some time ago, for * inviting a
friend to ride over the road with him, as
ho did not like to’ride in the train alone,
has been re-appointed by the superinten
dent. But we see he is again the hero of
another adventure, which has been made
public. The newspapers say (and what
they say must be true, you know) that on
a recent trip the train, of which this con
ductor had charge, overtook a cripple,
jumping along by the side of the track,
when our hero, the conductor,, kindly in
vited him to get on and ride. Thewooden
legged man thanked him, and replied that
he would rather not, as ho. was in a hurry.
The conductor thinks seriously oT throw

Origin of flie Odd FeiioTy*.
Many persons who are under the im
pression that the society of Odd Fellowa
is an, organization of modern times, will
be somewhat surprised to learn that its
origin dates as far back as the times of
Nero, and was established by the Roman
soldiers in the year 55. At that time
they were called 1 Fellow-Citizens/, the
present name being given to them hy
Titus'Caesar, twenty-four years
and they were so called from the singular
character of their meetings, and from their,
knowing each other by night or day, by
means of mystical signs and language.-
At tbe same time he presented them with
a dispensation, engraved on a plate of
gold, bearing different emblems of mor
tality. In the fifth centilry the Order
was established in the Spanish dominions,
audio Portugal in the sixth century.—
It did got reach and England un

De Seville, who, assisted by five knights ;
from France, formed a Grand Lodge in

and purposes. _

refused her consent, notwithstanding which
they managed to get away, apd returned

one of the girls struck the old woman to
