BLOOMSBUIIG, PA., FRIDAY, NOVEMBER
For " The Columbian,"
AN INCIDENT IN MY I.1FK.
by quit.k sAiin.
Soon nfler tlio opening of Vnrngiia)f lltvcr
to the commerco of the world, I was sent to
i araguay uy my employers lor tlio purpose
of purchasing cofleo,r!ct',etc., which far sur
passed tho productions of Ilrazll in quality.
At that time there was no regular lineof steam
eis playing between tlio United States and
the eastern coast of South America, and I
waSithereforo.obHgcd to embark on board of
a trading vessel, bound for Rio Janeiro. Tho
pn'scngers were few in number, and nothing
unusual occurred until wo reacheded Key
West, where a lady and gentleman got on
board. The latter proved to be n Mr. Hot
mail, from New Orleans, who had jut been
appointed U. S Consul to Iluenos Ayees,
and was on hii way to commerce- his olllcinl
lutics there. He was a pale.emnciated man
apparently fifty years of age. Hut the
daughter, as the lady proved to be, drew nil
attention to herself, causing even the hardy
sailors to tako oil' their hats in reverence.
It is as impossible to describe her beauty, as
It would bp to photograph tho radiance of
tho sun. She had a slight, petito figure,
though well proportioned and voluptuously
developed. Her hair was of that Indescriba
ble color between brown and black, which is
so beautiful iu effect, yetdiflicult of descrip
tion. The features were round and regular,
the cheeks alternating j between red and
marbletlie lips lull and pouting, enclosing
teeth which Ili-bo might have en v ad. Hut
tin- rial charm was in her eyes. Tlnir color
I know not ; but in repose they were, calm
and liquid like tho dove's and when cxclttd
by pnssh.n or pleasure gleamed from under
their heavy lashes as lightning darLs from a
gathering cloud penetrating magnetizing
all in Ihcir sphere.
I occupied the only respectable state room
In the veisel, but immediately tillered it to
Mixi Holnian Slio at iirst refused it, but
seeing my earnestness finally took the room,
and I felt amply tewarded in receiving one
of those sweet'siniits she could so well be-
Companionship in a vessel, as in an omni
bus becomes a necessity ; and a few days
sufficed to make mo thoroughly acquainted
with Mr. Holnian and his charming daugh
ter, Kate. With a broken voice, the latter
told me how she hud lost a sainted mother
and baby brother a few months before by
tho YellowFover,aud that iu order to escape
from painful memories as well as to restore
his broken health, her father had solicicited
and obtained his prescit appointment to
Buenos Ayre.s. The downcast eyes, quiver
ing lips, and above all tho gentle pathos of
her voice went deep into my heirt, causing
sympathetic tears to start to eyts which had
not known them for years. ''lis strange how
gentlo the heart becomes under the itiiluence
of love 1 The stern warrior, accustomed to
scenes of carnago and bloodshed, trembles
at the sight of a helpless maiden, the J udgo
relaxes tlio oflicial fronn,aud through its in-
ueuce permit Mercy to beam from tho eyes
of Justice, even the wild beast is tamed by
it. There vvas also that in our situation
which predisposed us to love. We saw Nu
tuio in her grandest and most illimitable
form, and iu awe at the sight, crushed back
tho petty conventionalities of life which too
often act as barriers. Wo were also away
from the busy world and its excitements,
and in consequence had none of its distrac
I soon loved Kate, and so knew it. Not
that tho word had been mentioned, but in
tuitively each felt it, and accepted tho feel
ing without protest.
We sailed cloeo to Cuba, Jamaica, and
other Ule.s, the perfumes from which were
wafted to us by gentle zepbyrs which intoxi
cated the Senses, while the green isles and
the shadowy mountains in tho back ground
captivated the imagination.
A few days sailing brought us in sight of
the South American coast, and by tho ship
per's reckoning wo were not far Ironi the
mouth of the Orinoco. Near midday the
vvinil suddenly lell, and there came a dead

When consciousness rcturnedl found myself
lying under tho shado of a hugo cocoa tree,
nnd to my delight saw Kate Holnian bend

Tho poor girl's agony vvas uncontrolablo on

Tho necessity of action aroused both.

Chattering monkeyes, screaming parrots,

I told her of my resolve to stay with her

CURIOUS INVENTION UY A BOSTON. MAN
NEW METHOD OF L0COM01I0N.
According to the Ronton Tractllcr, Mr. J.
II. Nolan, whoso ingenuity and success as
an inventor has already secured him a high
stan-ling in the mechanical world, has just
iuventeda novel rae-ans of locomotion, which
is in the form of'iin automatic' or self-propelling
boric, tho locomotion being produc
ed by tho weight of the rider and tho weight
which is carried. "The'"horso" and its ap
pliances are models of mechanical simplici
ty, aud any amount of speed required can
be secured, in (act it can be made to go u
a mUe faster than the fastest trotting horse
of tho day. A "mail "horse," capable of
carrying u man, ten or twelve miles per hour
can be built at from $15 to $0. The "horse"
can carry cuiii-ideruble weight iu additlou to
the rider. Tho pcrsou sits iu position as
ho would upon tho live animal, with tho
feet in stirrups uud .reins iu liaudi. ill vbich
position he can govern tho speed and guide
the "horse" at will. There vvas an exhibi
tion made with one Of these "horses" recen
tly, iu a hall in Boston, and although tho
room was small and unfavorable for either
speed or ettse of locomation, a boy weighing
sixty pouuds propelled the "horse" at from
six to seven miles an hour with tho utmost
ease. The experiment thoroughly establish
ed the partieal value ot tho invention.

A Stranso Story.
A ROM AXCC OF P.N6CII ARDHN EXEMPLIFIED
HARPSIIIP. OF THE LAW.
In May, 1S19, George pud Mary Hough
ton were married in Brooklyn New York.
A fow mouths after tbeir marriage the "green
eyed monster" Btioweu his hideous lorm in
their household. ' It is said that George was
not jealous without cause, but ho did not
mako much noiso about the matter. Uo
simply left bis young wife without any ex
planation, and ' went to' reside in Connect!
cut. Mary mourned his loss for a short
time, but vvas fortunate enough in a year or
two to find consolation in tho company of a
man'tiameJ Stephen Oram, who proposed
marriage. Like Mrs, Enoch Arden, sho had
misgivings, and requested Stephen to wait
another year or two. Not hearing from tho
lost one for five years sho concluded that ho
was dead, nt least iu law, and consented to
becomo Mrs. Oram, Tbo following year the
dead man turned up and obtained a divorce
on tho ground that his wife was living in
adultery witli Stephen Cram. Mr. Hough
ton again disappeared, nnd married a wife
in Connecticut, witli whom it nppears, he
lived very happily, while his first wife con
tinued to reside tranquilly with Mr. Oram,
who knew all thft.circumstanccs nnd took it
for granted that he was, her legal husband,
as llonghton had- abandoned her for five
years, twenty years rolled around, and
Mr. Houghton and his first wifo never met,
After the Urooklyn theatre calamity of 1870,
while1 Mr. Houghton vvas reading over tho
list of tho victims ho observed in it the name
of Stephen Ojaui. Ho went,, at once to the
house of the latter to inquire about him,
and when he knocked at the eloor it was
opened by his first wife, who did not recog-
nizo him. Ho speedily mado himself known,
nowover, anil a sensational sceno was the
result. Hut now comes Mrs. Oram's great
est trouble. She and her second husband
by hard Industry had accumulated a llttlo
property, whiqh she imagined was hers at
his death ; but when she sought letters of
administration she was opposed by some of
of Mr, Oram's friends, On tho ground of her
divorce Irom Houghton without the privil
ego of marrying again, and ou tho strength
ot this the surrogate refused her application.
Thinking tho casd very hard, inasmuch as
sno eim not marry uram until she consider
ed her first husband legally dead. sho. after
tuerciusalot thenurrogate to recognize her
as tho lawful wifo of Oram, made appllca
tion to the superior court to have the divorce
frqm, Houghton set asido on tho cround
that sho had not been teryed with a sum-
mous at the time and had no knowledge of
mo uivorco proceedings. But here atralu
sho was met by another difficulty in the
mesnes ot tue lvr. Houghton has a child
seveuteen years of ago by his second wife,
who would, of course, be made illegitimate
if Mrs. Oram should succeed lu setting aside
tho divorce. After careful consideration of
all conflicting interests in tho case Judge
Friodman recently denied the motion, thus
leaving the woman, in licr old age, deprived
of many years' sayings of hard toll aud
thrown ou tho world because she did not
fully understand tho law of divorce in the
tlio first Injtance. The legal proverb that
'Mgnorauce is uo excuse" has been carried
out her case with terrible severity, not al
together, as. It WQuld seem, from the fault of
the law or tho judges, but chiefly by the
force of circumstances.
