HENRY S. REAY,
I was a young doctor, not overburdened
with practtco, when I sat half dozing In tny
surgery, ono stifling August nfternoon, and
was roused by a bustle in tbo street and a
cry, "Hero's a doctor ; ring the bell I"
By the time the ring was answered I was
wide awake and had my professional expres'
ston on. Two men camo In, and ono held In
his arms a llmp,6enseless figure a boy about
three years old, covered with the blood flow'
Ing from a gash in his head. I took the lit

to the sofa,while tho men brought mo water
and seemed deeply interested in all my move
A broken arm and the deep cut on the
head kept me busy some time, but at last
my little patient was made as comfortable as
possible and was moaning with recovering
"Have you far to carry him ?" I asked of
one of the men.
"We don't own him," was the answer.
"He was a running across the street and
a horse kicked him over. Jim, here," indl
eating his companion, "he picked him up,
and I come along to help find a doctor,
'cause Jim can t read."
'Needn't a shoved that in I"
growled Jim, turning red. "Poor llttlo chap
how he groans 1"
"I will give him something to quiet him,
presently," I said, "and will send word to

often heard mother telling him of the

Dennis, my coachman, was very fond of
Freddie, and very careful ; so I was not
afraid to leave my little charge with him
whilo I was indoors, and ho was veiy happy
chatting with the good natured Irishman,
and waiting my coming.
It was early in November, and mother
had dressed Freddie for tho first time in a
jaunty suit of velvet, with a dainty velvet
cap over his brown curls, when one morning
I Bent him out with Dennis until I was ready
to start. Looking out I saw him standing
on the pavement, giving Nat, my horse, a

when I beard he was ill I went to him at
once, leaving my boy with my husband's
mother and sister. I knew they were not
very fond of him, but I had no choice I
dared not tako him to Liverpool with tho
cholera raging there, and I had nowhere
elso to leave him. I found my husband very
ill, but he was recovering, when he had a
relapse. Ho rallied from that and took cold,
I think, or over fatigued himself, bringing
on a second relapse that proved fatal. Du

A Ccntest with a Madman.
TERRIBLE ENCOUNTER IN A CORNFIELD
WITH A LUNATIC ARMED WITH. A
William Taylor,a resident of Raisin town
ship, was brought to the jail in this city on
tho afternoon train from Tecumseh yester
day. Ho was in an alarming slate of mad
frenzy, aud officer Merrltt, of Tecumseh, had
to call lu considerable assistance in getting
tho madman off the train lnl o a back. Near
ly all tho clothes were torn from the lunatic',
hack in the operation. Taylor is an Eng
lishman, and has resided In Raisin, where
ho owns a farm containing two hundred
acres, for several years. Ho has led tho life
of a miserly hermit, being unmarried, and
living alone. Some years ago, after having
a fit, ho was temporarily Insane, but since
that time ho has been considered as sane as
numberless men are.
Tho present attack has been on him for
about four days, and his friends attribute it
to overwork in tho heated hatvest field. He
has been out of his head, but seemingly not
dangerus, for three or four days. Yester
day he went over into the cornfield of New
ton Bryan, where a young man about twenty
years old was at work, and asked for a
drink. It seems he had been in the habit of
going thero for cider, a jug of which was
usually kept in the field. The boy told him
thero was noting but water there, andthat
the jug was at tho other side of the field.
Taylor insisted that the young man should
go along with him to get it. Accordingly
the two started, and when about half way
across the field Taylor grabbed his compan
ion by the coat collar, and muttered : "I'll
fix you before we get through." Tho young
man, with the utmost coolness, replied: "I
am not afraid ; I have never injured you,
and you won't hurt me."
Arriving at the fence, tho lunatic seized
the young man by the hair, and, jerking
back his head, pulled out a razor and yelled,
"Draw in your breath, your time has come."
Just as the maniac was drawing back the
keen edged razor for the awful stroke that
must have, severed his victim's head from
his body, the young man struck him a blow
in the face and leaped over the fence with
the now thoroughly infuriated maniac, who
is very powerful even when sane, at his
heels. In tho next field a struggle ensued.
It was life or death for tho young laborer,
and he fought like a tiger, the lunatic mean
time slashing right and left with the razor,
with which he inflicted two wounds upon the
the scalp of bis victim.

crying, 'Oh, Aunt Lucy, don't beat Freddie!

Mother would get so excited, with indigna

into the surgery. I shut out tho curious
people who followed, and Freddie clung fast
to the black dress, never ceasing his loud
cries of "Ob, mamma I It is my mamma
come home to Freddie. Mamma pretty!
The sound rang through the house, reach
ing my mother's ears.as she sat in her room.
She came hurrying down the stairs, and
entered the surgery just s Dennis deposited
his burden in an arm chair. Comprehend
ing the situation at a glance, mother tender
ly removed the crepe veil and bonnet, loos
ening a shower of brown curls, found a mar
ble white face, still insensible.
"You see, sur," said Dennis, "Master
to the child, to revert again to the Wests, if
he dies without heirs. Do you see 1"
I did see. I saw again the hard, deter
mined face leaning over the sleeping child,
denying him ; the weaker woman sanction
ing the deceit, but falling senseless in the
room. I understand now the disappoint
ment that had greeted the tidings that the
child was neither dead nor dying, but recov
