Walt Strathmore und his youn
ger biotliur, lmd been frequent visitors
at our lovely mansion in Elton, and
somo ancient spirits nodded their heads
sagely nnd hinted at "marriage," while
young girls fairer than I, tossed their
curls und wondered "what Walt and
Gerard Strathmoro could see in that
Ivy Viiyno to admiro; for sho had nei
ther beauty nor style."
And I, Ivy Vayno aforesaid, listened
mid smiled, for I had learned tho sweet
est lesson a girl can learn tho lesson of
For many weeks Gerard and Walt
had established themselves in Ellon,
principally nt our home, nnd ono dav
in September, Walt camo alone, and in
a quiet sort of way, confessed "ho loved
mo." Tiiis sudden confession annoved
and startled mo, I had boon so en
grossed with gay Gerard, and as I lis
tened to his passionato words and his
quiet, almost stern manners, I did tho
most foolish tiling a woman could do,
mrst Into a ilood of hysterical weeping.
Ho soothed mo In a tender, calm way,
and spoko of his lovo being lowarded
at last, and I entreated him to leave
mound let mo think.
Ho pressed my hand to his llpi and
left me, to dream of his brother. Ge
rard had paid mo no particular inten
tion; liu had turned my music when I
u as called to tiio piano, ho had held in v
bouquet of lloivers, nnd entreated for
"Just one," as many others bad done,
but ho had novcr shown In any other
way, that I was dearer than other girls
to him. All this I recalled, and at lait
remembered how assiduous Wait had
been townrds mo, I had boon so long
in lovo with Gerard, that Walt had on
ly occupied a small niclio in my heart,
as Gerard's brother, that and nothing
Novcr wero two brothers moro unlike.
Walt, tho elder by two years, was slight
mid of medium height, with brown
hair and browner eyes, hut with a stern
severe look about tho finely chiseled
mouth, that had produced a most unfa

My voice broko from Its steady calm

A correspondent of tho Bradon Mlss
Isslppl.Republican wrltingfrom Forrest
in tho samo State, on tho 23th of March,
Several days previous immense post
ers were pasted on all tho walls in town,
announcing that Reynold's great Mexi
can Uymnaslum and Menagerio would
exhibit in Forrest on that day. Early
in tho morning all the roads leading to
town wero thronged with peoplo of all
nges,se.es,and colors.nnd by ten o'clock
tho whole town was alive with visitors
awaiting tho arrival of tho menagerio.
At eleven o'clock tho fine brass baud
announced tho arrival oftho show, and
by twclvo tho canvas was stretched and
the cages of tho animals arranged.
Tho huge elephant Hercules tho lar
gest ever imported into this country-
was chained to a stake ; and, by way of
caution to thoso entering tho canvas.
.John Alston, his keeper, stated that ho
had for several days manifested a disno
sition of insubordination, and begged
that no ouo would approach sulUcIently
near to receive a blow from his trunk.
Mr. Mark Kilo, from the northern part
oi mis county, coming in nfter Mr. Al
stou'sndmoultion, thoughtlessly handed
him a pieco of tobacco, which so enraged
mm that ho struck at him witii such
violence as to dislocato Ills shoulder, al
though It was a glancing blow. Ho
plunged with such force that ho broko
his chain, and, although his keeper used
every effort to subduo him, ho was en
tirely uncontrolable.and ho would striko
and kick nt every object near him. By
tiiis tlmo tho sceno was beyond descrip
tion. The vast crowd flew for life. Ho
flew at his keeper and pursued him un
der the canvas.
Tho eleven o'clock freight train being
behind tiiuc.and not having any freight
for Forrest, and tho engineer not intend
ing to stop, camo rushing along at tho
rate of twenty miles an hour. When it
had approached within two hundred
yards he looked up and seemed doubly
enraged. Ho immediately ran toward
it with grcnt speed, und met it witii such
a stroke that ho broko ono or his tuyks
and wns immediately killed. Tho en
gine wn.s detached rrom tho train and
tlirown-rrom tho track, and Mr. Whar

off the steam, it unfortunately ran into

Hon. Tho lion lludlng himself uninjured
and at liberty, and being frightened by
tho steam and whistle of tho engine,
started at full speed down the Home-
wood road, roaring toirlfienlly. Ho had
gone but a short dfstanco when ho met
Mr.Geerg'i W.Sheppiird and gavo chase.
Mr. Sheppard finding that ho was gain
Ingupouhlm rapidly.and that he would
certainly bo overtaken, attempted to
climb a s.ijillng. Ho struck nt him with

Mr. John Smith, or Raleigh, who was
on his way to Forrest, riding his lino
pacing horse, with his littlo son behind
lilin, met him rour miles rrom hero.
As soon us his horso saw him ho neigh
ed, when the Hon rushed nt him, seized
him by the throat nud threw him to tiio
ground. Mr. Smith witii his little son
escaped to tho wood and made their
way to Forrest on root.
Whllo hq wus devouring Mr. Smith's
horso, Mr. Jamoa J. Rltcli, who was on
his way to Forrost with a load or chick
ens, drove up. As soon as ho saw him
ho rcarod ou hu hind feet, lashed tho
ground with his tail, r.ud sprang uthlni.
Mr. Ritch eluded him byjumpiug rrom
his wagon, when ho mounted and began
to tear open tho boxes containing thq
chickens and turned them out. Ho
then seemed to loso sight of overythlng
