THE PAIUV OK THE WELL.
Tlio civil war between the. Cavaliers and
Puritans, which was then desolating tho
land, had taken Landleigh Castlo iti its de
structive course, and that onco lordly pile
was now a ruin. An ancient well stood near
its blackened walls, with a square coping of
old, gray, mossy stones, into which flowed a
translucent btream. At the back of this well
was an antique recess of stone, from the
centre of which the water took its course.
The beams of early sunlight glittered on
the water as a young cavalier approached the
well. If there bo a spell called "sweet
memories" which, they say, binds the heart
to certain places, and it the loveliness of
tho scenes in which one's childhood has
been passed, serves to renew tho guileless
joys of infancy, then, indeed, might Denzil
Norman attribute to their influenco his in
creasing reluctance to depart and rejoin his
regimeut. Hut no; ho knew the spell that
bound him to that spot was the charm of a
simplo village maiden. Yes, from the mo.
ment he had beheld tho lovely and gcutlo
Alice lirooke, ho felt that his destiny was
He knew the legend of the old well. Its
waters were said to bo guarded by the fairy
of the castle. She harmed but the wicked.
Those who had ever beheld her, (which he
never had,) said that her smilo was so sweet
it made everybody who was fortunate enough
to encounter it.gniul looking and happy.
"Ah I famous fairy nf this well," he cried,
apostrophizing it -"if indeed, such spirits
exist between heaven and man how glad
ly would I importune you to award me the
allectiiiii of a village maiden. Then (ar
far from the kingly courts and the hostile
dins of warfare "
He paused abruptly, for it appeared to
him as if a voice answered him from the
well. He listened intentlyand heard a sweet
silvery voice mingling with the rippling of
tlio waves, which chanted these words:
Deuzll Norman I Dcnzll Norman I
List tho Kalry of tho Well ;
l'ocs aro coming-foes tire coining,
Hero no longer thou must dwell.
Happier days may on thee wait I
Ply from lovo uud fij from fato !
Dcnzll was filled with amazement. The
voico sounded to his car liko the wreathed
choir of unseen spirits. Could it be posxiblo
ho asked himself, that thero were such be
ings as fairies, who watch our actions, uud
know our inmost thoughts ?
Tlio voice had ceased, but now another
sound broke upon his ear a distant hum as
of troops upon the murch. Tho warning
was true, then he was in peril. The Round'
heads were near. If detected, he knew he
should be denounced as a spy.nml shot with
out delay. Yet still he would not fly until
ho had exchanged a few farewell words with
the lovely Alice.
Ho hastened back to the house ot Dr.
lirooke, the village physician and the father
of his love. Tho worthy doctor was sur
prised at his return.
"Rash youth!" ho exclaimed, "were you
not admonished on your way hither to lly
at once from Landleigh 1"
"How know you that?" answered Dcnzll,
in iiumzeinent. "Yes, I was admonished
but 1 had not said farewell to Alice.
"This is absolute inaduew," said Dr.
lirooke. "Roy, boy,areyoti aware that faro'
well may cost you your life?"
"Not so,worthy host; I wear n good sword
and possess a strong arm to back it," re
plied Deuzil with tho confidence of youth.
"Where is Alice?"
"She is absent, but will shortly return j
und when sho does I will send her In you,"
said the doctor, and left the room,
As Dcnzll gazed listlessly from the win
dow, a panel in the wall glided noiselessly
to one side and through the aperture can o u
lovely girl, boine eighteen years of age, clad
in tho plain but becoming costume of a
village maid. Slio closed the panel quietly,
advnuceil to Deuzil's bide, aud laid her.hand
upon his shoulder. He started up in joyful
"Ah, sweet Alico !" he exclaimed,
"Deuzil, Denzlll" she answered Im
patiently ; "why do you tarry here when
every moment adds to tlio peril of your
''Chide ino not," ho returned, "since I
tarried but to ask you if you will love mu
when 1 am gone, us I shall continue tu love
"Oh. Denzll, Dctizlll" sho responded,
plaintively, "Is R generous to leave this
Impression on the heart of a poor maiden,
whoso last hope could be to unlto herself In
wedlock with one of noble dctccnt like yours?
I do love you nor blush to acknowledge
that which is oi dear to me as the love of
llfolUcIt, Rut, alas I hare heard it tald
Vour liiuid tUvMisl 16 Miottitr.'
"Another I AVhat other?" demanded
Dcnzll, In surprise.
Tho daughter of your father's friend,
Lord Eustace Illount, nnd the proprietor of
yonder ruined castle," answered Alice.
"Lord Eustaco perished nt the battlo of
Worce.ter," said Denzll ; "his daughter fled
or wni lost In the conflict. Tlio heart and
hand of IVnzil Norman aro free, Alice, and
to you they will he true."
Mtco made no further remonstrance, but
she presently inquired : "You remember,
then, the Lord I'Ustaco und his young,
motherless daughter ?"
"Alice, I do," ho unswered : "who over
forgets tho companions of earliest years?
Jle was my guardian she the playful com
panion of my summer walks. All aro gone 1
Rut tho Influence of thcirgood wishes seems
still to direct my destiny."
l'hey were now disturbed by the abrupt
entrance of a servant, who informed them
that tho house was surrounded by l'uritans.
and that they had evidently come in search
of Deuzil Norman. Alice showed Dcnzil
the secret panel and urged him to conceal
himself. He did so with reluctance, and
tUice awaited the coming of tho Roundhead
soldiers with n fluttering heart.
Iho Roundheads wtro uuder the com
mand of the stem Colonel Ireton. Ho was
much incensed when he found that Denzll
had escaped him, nnd ordered his soldiers to
seize upon the doctor and Alice, nnd bear
them away prisoners. Dcnzil, who had
lingered behind tho panel, fearing some
such result, now made his appearance and
gave himself up, to prcservo his friends.
Alico cast a reproachful glance upon
him as tho Roundheads marched him
A brief trial was allotted to the young
cavalier. He was adjudged a spy, and
sentenced to be shot. Ho was placed for
safe keeping in the chapel of tho ruined
Castle of Landleigh, aud a guard kept vigi
laut watch over him.
It was night. A lamp burned dimly at
the foot of a pedestal supporting the statue
of a warrior beneath the shadow of whose
shield Dcnzil Xormau sat immersed in
gloomy thought. His dream of life ap
peared to have reached its end. In half an
hour, in that chapel, at the foot of his great
ancestor, whoso battle axe did such marvels
in Palestine over tho infidels, he, the last of
his proud race, was about to sink ; and it
must be without a struggle, ignobly, igno-
miniously. Suddenly a voice of sweetest
melody broke through the gloomy still
Dcnzll Norman Denzll Norman I
List tho Fairy of the Well ;
I am near theo Denzll hear me,
Here shalt thou no longer dwelL
lluppy days for theo await,
Fly from love, and fly from fato 1
Denzil took up tho lamp to see from
whence tho voice proceeded, but a sudden
gii9t of wind extinguished it. Rut nt that
moment the moonlight falling with radiant
brilliancy on tho broken window of the
gallery, disclosed to him the form of the
fairy standing on the base of a lofty column.
Neither form nor feature were visible, how
ever, and a large white veil completely en
veloped her person. She looked like the
marble image of some sculptured saint.
"DenziI,"sho said, in a voice that sounded
strangely familiar to his ears, "the Fairy of
theWell is the friend of true lovers and would
have these live. Therefore take thou heart;
the fairy is here to secure your flight. The
King hath landed on his native shore."
'tlod save King Charles !'' cried Denzil
"Amen !" responded the fuirv; "thou shalt
join him soon. Touch the right knee of the
statue press hard and a door will open in
the pedestal; through it you will find liberty.
! reed from this chapel, seek tho old her-
initugo at the depth of the glen. A friend
awaiteth thee there the fairy's friend. Pro
nounce in his ear tho name of Alice Urooke;
he will recognize nnd conduct thee to the
feet of thy triumphant sovereign. Denzll
The moon-beams were suddenly obscured
by a passing cloud; and when her light shone
forth again, tho fairy had disappeared,
Denzil hastened to obey her instructions.
He found the secret door, entered the sub
terranean passage to which it onducted
and speedily emerged into a wood beyond
the chapel wall. He" hastened lo the her
mitage; and there, to his great surprise and
joy, encountered his old friend and guardian
Lord Eustace Illount, who ho thought had
been untimely slain on AVurcester field.
Lord Eustace's story was soon told. Ho
had been Baved by tho Fairy of the Well.
Wounded nigh lo death, concealed in the
ruins of his own castle, she had been his
nurse. His life proscribed, slie was his
guardian angel, in she had been DenztPs.
Hisbtoiy told, he told Denzil to go with
him to tho King, assuring him that his
sovereignly had been proclaimed in Loudon
and that the fierce civil war was well nigh
over. Hut Denzil must btoii by tho wnv ut
i;octor lironfce's cotlago to exchange a few
words witli his loved Alice.
Tho doctor welcomed them both most joy-
"And Alice whero Is she ?" asked Deu
"Whut Al'ice?" inquired Lord Kustaeo
"Sho to whom I am engaged, my Lord,"
answered Lenzii ; "one dearer to me, tar
dearer to me, fur dearer than life."
"Engaged, Denzll ?" cried Lord Eustace j
"you forget I have a daughter, named Kate,
to whom In early life you ivere betrothed."
"l'urdoii me.iioble Lurd, 1 was a boy
then," remarked Deuzil. "The heart will
not be commanded ; despite myself, I love
another ; uud surely you would not covet
tor your daughter the hand uf it mini who
could never bestow upon her his aflectlon.
Rut I cannot wed your daughter; my love
my vow is irrevokuble. "
'Nay, fctuy until you have seen Kate,'
urgtd Loid Eustaco; "let her plead for her
self. Doctor, bring her hither."
Dr. lirooke left tho room, but presently
returning, leading a female by the hand who
wore over head und pesson a flowiug white
"Here bho Is, Denzll," he said ; "you hove

"The Fairy or tho Well I" cried Denzll
"Otherwise Kato Illount," replied Lord
Eustace, pleasantly ; "who, uuder that dls

the castle,) for years saved tho life of her

Tho fairy put back her veil and discovered
the features uf Alico ilrooke.
"Denzll dear, faithful Denzll," she ox-
claimed tenderly, "It is 1 1"
He started to his feet in fresh amazement,
crying out joyfully, "Alice 1"
"No, Kate, thy cousin," said the doctr r.
"She but passed as my daughter to escapo
the persecution of her father's foes. She is-
the daughter of tills noble lord ; her true
name, the Lady Catherine Illount. Say,
will you now refuse her hand ?"
Denzil eagerly grasped the hand which
his cousin extended to him.
"And now our mystery solves itself Into a
sweet reality, exclaimed Lord Eustace,
joyfully ; and lie joined their hands together
and blessed them.
AVhen Charles the Second, restored to the
throne of his ancestors, summoned his de

The Prompt Juror.
Tho Augusta, Qa., Constitutionalist says
"Wo heard his Honor, Judge Gibson, on
Tuesday, tell an amusing story of the wayn
uror went for n conviction. He says ho
was trying a murder case a lew years
ago down In ono of the wire-grass counties,
and experienced great difficulty in getting a
jury; that eleven jurors uau been sworn in,
and in the next panel that was brought ill
was a small, lean, lank, cadaverous-looking
fellow who had on one shoe, his pants wero
nearly above his knees, his shirt open both
back and front, and the aforesaid trousers
were held up by a Blnglo suspender. Tho
solicitor proceeded to ask the usual ques
tions in such cases as follows :
"Have you, from having seen the crime:
committed, or heard of any of the testimo
ny delivered under oath, formed and ex
pressed any opinion as to the guilt or inno
cence of the prisoner at the bar?"
The "single gallus" fellow, in a clear and
distinct voice, answered : "Not any."
Second question "Uavo you any preju
dice or bias resting on your mind for or
against tho prisoner at the bar ?"
Answer "I hain't."
Third question "Is your mind perfectly
mpartial between the State aud the accus
Answer "Hit are.
Fourth question "Are you conscientious
ly opposed to capital punishment?"
Answer "I isn't."
The State did not like the juror much, but
it being late and jurors scarce, he was put
upon tho stand to look at the prisoner in
the usual manner, the solicitor saying :
"Juror look upon the prisoner." Tho juror
looked the prisoner firmly in the face, and
then turning to the Judge, said in a firm,
solemn voice : "Yes, Judge, I think he is
A Trip With a Whccl-barrow.
HOLLINO SPECIMl'.NS FOR TIIK CHNTHNNIAL,
1,400 MILKS ACROSS; TIIK COUNTRY.
One afternoon about five o'clock a man
and boy apparently worn with travel, nnd
certainly bronzed by the sun und begrimed
wilii the dust of the road, were seen trudg
ing in AVest King, the man holding the han
dles of an oilillv constructed aud haudsome-
ly iiainted wheelbarrow,and the boy walking
by his side. The man proved to be Mr. J.
C. Temple, of tho town of Joplin, Jasper
county, Missouri, the buy being his son Otto,
aged 13 years. He said that he left Joplin
on the 2Stli of February, accompanied by
his son Otto, and an Englishman uamed
Wilson. Some time last winter he made a
proposition that if the Oronogo and Joplin
Mining Company, of Jasper county would
givi him fifty pounds of minerological spec-
metis from their mines, lie would wheel
them on a wheelbarrow all the way to the
Ce'ntennial. Some beautiful specimens of
ore were brought to him und he constructed
a wheelbarrow thut would bo particularly
suitable for so long a journey. The entire
weight of the burrow, baggage, and speci
mens of minerals is one hundred and fifty
pounds, and the cost of the entire outfit was
$125. The mineral; are specimens of zinc,
lead, blackjack, spar and garnet, all from
Oronogo and Joplin, Missouri mines.
Mr. Temple and his son have travelled
more than 1,-iOO miles. They have made as
high as 27 miles, though they frequently
stopped oft" at convenient points to recuper
ate, at one place resting as long as five days.
They camped out 27 nights, but generally
they were lurnished with good lodging and
hobpltably entertained along the route.
Monuili iMl'ULiK. Hut one of the most
singular things exists iu the case of a young
man who not long ago visited a largo iron
manufactory. He stood opposite a huge
hammer, und watched with great interest its
perfectly regular strokes, At first it was
beating iiumt iiKo lumps of crimson metal in
to thin, black sheets, but tho supply be-
coining exhausted, at last it only descended
on the polished anvil. Still tlio young man
gazed intently on its motion ; then he fol
lowed its stroke with a corresponding notion
of his head ; then his left arm moved to the
same tune ; aud finally he deliberately iJnc
nl his list upon the anvil, and in n second it
was smitten to u jelly. Tho only explana
tiou ho could afford was that he felt an im
pulse to do it, ii id that he knew, he should
be disabled ; that he saw the cnuscqwiiicu in
u misty kind of manner; but that ho still
felt u potter within, ubovo benso and reason
a morbid impulse, in fact, to which he
biiccumbed, and by which ho lost a good
right hand, This incident suifgests inanv
things besides proving the peculiar nature
uud power uf morbid impulses; such things;
for instance, as a law of sympathy on a scale
hitherto undreamt of, us well ns a musical
tune pervading all things. Chamber's Jour

At tho conclusion of the ratification meet
ing tho band, accompanied by on Immense
crowd, repaired to tho residence of his ex

serenading him. In response to tho screnado
the Governor came to tho door, nnd wan
greeted with enthusiastic cheers. He said :
Till! OOVHRNOll's) ADDltFA-J.
My Fellow Citizens I thank you for this
expression of your respect. There is ono
question occupying tho public mind. It is
whether the Democratic party ought to bo
restored to power at this time. Many yearn
ago it was iu power for a long period. Dur
ing that time all concede that the laws wero
just and equal, fair to capital and just to labor.
Prolonged cheers.J The people were happy
and the country prosperous. For sixteen
years tke Republican party has been in pow
er. It is eleven years since tho close of the
war. Is the country, as any one patriotio
and true, desires it to be? Is capital sccuro
in its investment? Is labor blessed with re
munerative employment? Aro tho laws
equal ? Are they not partial ? During all
this period the Democratic party have not
had eontrol of any department or branch in
the public service. At this session of Con
gress our party has a decided majority in
tho House. fApplause.l
is it wf.li.
is It ill for tho country that it Is so?
There may be much to criticise in what has
been said and done in the House, but this
stands prominently forth : That the Investi
gations which it has conducted have devel
oped a corruption in the public service hor
rible to contemplate; worse, perhaps, than
that which impaired the strength nud des
troyed tho fortunes of France under Louis
Napoleon before and during tho Prussian
war. It is now shown, so that everybody
knows it, that these corruptions and partiali
ties have prevailed for many years, but they
remained concealed liko a festering disease
at the bone, uutil a Democratic House ap
plied the knife. The result of all this was
that all tho people, shocked at what they
had supposed to exist, but which they now
see, are determined to restore good govern
ment. Tremendous applause. Daro any
frank and honest man say that in llieso in
vestigations the House has not done good
work for tho country ? AVhatevcr criticism
may be made upon what has been done in
the Houso this is conceded : That in the ap
propriation bill it has reduced the public
expenditures from $20,000,000 to !i0,000,-
000 1 To accomplish this retrenchment, it
has maintained n dreadful contest with tho
Senate, and its action was denounced as re-
olutionary. If, then, corruption be over
thrown and expenditures reduced from $20,
000,000 to f30.000.000, will any one question
thut it was well for the country that two
ears ago a Democratic House was chosen ?
Cheors. A distinguished citizen of tho
government of New York has been nomin
ated fur the Presidency. Is his election not
also in the Interest of the people? Ho does
not come with assurances upon the lips
alone, but tho
ltr.iui.Ti or Hid I AUOlt
Inth iu the city of New Yurk and as Gover
nor of the Slate, attest his purpose and his
ability to maintain a sticce-ful cmili'st with
partiality, iMrruiiti n ainl Irntid. Loud
cht'crii. Ptiliticai I'm' uud Irienil alike have
fallen under his blows. Cheers. Great
mproveuiHiit in Iho city nl New York has
been a partial result and a mlm-iinn of tlio
taxes of the State from $ 1 7,0i 10,000 to $8,-
000,000, lightens tho bunions of labor and
aud encourages tho iuvestinout of capital.
Applause. As to Gov. Hayes, the Repub
lican candidate, I would speak of him as
well as his most impartial friend, but his
election Is but a continuance in power of tho
men who have controlled the policies and
the appointments of Grant's administration.
If elected, can he disregard Guv. Morton's
power in Indiana; Cameron's sway in Penn
sylvania, or Conklin's lordship in New
York? " Cries of No 1 No!" They say
he is mi honest man ; was not the samo said
if Gen. Grant four years ago? In a speech
which I made in the Academy of Music, the
first in my canvass for Governor, 1 said that
l left alone Grant would have made a better
President, but the surroundings, tho influ
ence, and the political power that could con
trol his administration would bring upon tho
people tho ill which we now deplore.
At this lato hour you would not expect me
to say more. I have been Informed that
during the next week I will be formally no
tified ot my luniinatlou on the ticket at St.
Louis. 1 will then anunuiico my action aud
I trust it will bo satisfactory to tho Demo
cracy of Indiana, huthusiabtm and pro
longed cheering. Again, gentlemen, I
thank you for thu compliment. Loud
A Tradition of Sauatoua Laki:.
There U tin Indian super.-lltiuii attached to
this lake which probably hud its sourco in
its leinarkalilo hmclincBS and tranquility.
1 lie Mohawks believed that its stillness was
wicred to the Great Spirit, aud that if a hu
man voico uttered u sound upon its waters,
the canoe of the olleuder would instantly
sink. A story is told of an Englishwoman,
in the early dujsol tho llr.st settlers, who
hud feccaslon to cross this lake with a party
of Indians, who, before embarking, warned
her niiwt impressively of tho spell. It was a
silent, breathless day, tout the cauoo shot
over the surf ico nf tlm lake like an arrow.
About half u mile Irnm the shore, near tho
centre of the lake, thu woman, wishing to
convince the Indians nf thu erroueousnebs of
their superstition, uttered a loud cry. Tho
countenances ot thu Indians fell iiitautly to
the deepest gloom. Alter n minute's pause,
however, they redoubled their exertions anil
in frowning silence drove tho light baric
swiftly over tho waters They reached the
shore in safety, und drew up tho canoe,
when tho woman rallied the chief on his
credulity. "The (In at Pplrlt Is mercilul,"
answered the Kcuiufiil MuliHvik; "ho knows
that a white woman cannot hold her tongue!"
In Lo. Angeles, Cul., is a family with nine
varieties of children. The husband and wife
have each been married twice before and
hud one child nt.e.ach former marriage,
which makes four children, each one having
different parents. The present wife's former
husbands had each been married before,
leaving u child by their former vtivus, which
makes six children of different parents. The
present husband's two former wives had pre
viously married, leaving each une child,
