Tin: following nil venture happened in
thu yoar17fl-, and tho lady who narrat
ed it to tho writer was (lu thoso days)
young girl staying hi the house. It
was in tho palmy days of Hath, when
that now fallen city rivalled London In
brilliancy and dissipation, and when nil
thu rich, thu gay, and tho high-born of
ingland congregated there In tliuseas'on
and graced thu balls and assemblies,

her fu--clnatlon, her bencolenee, nnd
set of the most matchless and perfect
amethysts. Her housu contained tapes
tried chambers. Tho walls of tho ono

with designs from heathen mythology,
and tho tlue.st piece in tlio room was

It lcprescnted I'heebus driving tho

party at home, bho wore oil her nmo

1 o'clock in tho morning, sho took oil
horjuwcls, laid them on tlio table, and
dismissing tho weary v.iaiil, i'ltended
to put them nwuy hersi.ll; but, beforo
doing so, knelt down, us u-ual, to her
nruvors. While engaged iu her devo
tions, it was a Iinbit with her to look
upward, and thu face of I'lucbus was
generally her point of sight, as it were,
and tho object on which her eyes most
easily rested. On this particular night,
as usual, sho raised her eyes lol'liieinis.
What does sho see? Has I'ygniallnn
been at work? Has ho niletl thoso dull
silk eyes with vital lire? Or Is tho
dreaming? No. los-0ssed naturally

upon hers. Tho llgiit of her caudles

good keen sight enabled her, after a
cleverly managed scrutiny, lo sou that
the tapestry eyes of I'luebus had been
cut out, and that, Willi her door locked
and every servant in bed in their dis
tant apartments, and all her jewels
spread out before her, sho was not alone
in tho room. Sho concluded her pray

Wo can well imagine what those pray-

sho knew that bells and screams wero
equally usoloss.and sho lay down in hue
bed its usual and waited tho Issuu, her
only omission being that sho did not,
put away her jewels. "They may savu
my life," she s till to lierwlf, and shfj
closed her oyoj. The clock struck nvu
before a sound was heard, and then thu
moment arrived. She heard a ru-lle, u,
descent from behind tho tapestry, andii
man stood at her dres'-ing-table. Ho
took oil' Ids coat, and ono by one lu
secured tho jewels beneath his waist
coat. What would bo his next move?
Would it be lo thu bed-ide or to tiiO

SixmiE Tin: Leaves. The w.od.-i
tuo now full of leaves, indeed they
appear to bo more abundant than ever,
but farmers do not value them as high
ly ns wo think they should. Eor barn
yards especially they mv profitable ti

there Is little pressing work on hand,
(j'uthered up In heaps they can be read,
lly loaded iu carts nud wagons with
clotoUielvings by using either 11 cloth
some two or .three yards square, or with
a wooden rako and tho arm. Hogs aru
very fond of them for litter, so are cows;
and fo.- compost they are excellent. As!
oat straw is now usually fed lo mttlo,
und ryo straw now commands a lilsli
prlcu in tho market, tlieio is nothing;
left for tlio purposo of littering except
wheat straw. 1 lenco forest leaves should
bo held in higher estimation than they
It is a good rule lo gather tliein llilsi
mouth or early in December, as they
aru not quite dry and can bu loudest
moro readily and larger quantities ciui
bo got on thu wagon.
