Outspoke the hardy Highland wight, "I'll go, my chlcf-1'm ready : It Is not for our silver bright ; It'll lor our w Insoni-i lady i And by my word 1 the bonny bird lu dancer bhall not tairy j So though the waves are raging white, I'll row jou o'er tho ferry." Hy this tho storm grew loud apace, Tho w nter-wrallh was shrieking j And In the scol ot hen veil each faco llrow daik as they were speaking. Hut still as wilder blew the wind, And as the night grew drearer, Adown the glen rode armed men, Their trampling Bounded nearer. "0 haste Ihee, haste, the lady cries, Though tempests round us gather ; I'll meet tho raging ot the bkies, Hut not an angry father." Tho boat lias lelt a 6tormy land, A stormy sea before her, hen, oh l too strong for human band, The tempeit gather'cd o'er her And stlil they row'd amidst Ihe roar ot waters fast prevailing: Lord Ulllu reich'd that faUil shore, Ills wrath was changed to walling. l-'orsoro dlsmay'd, through storm and shade, His child ho did discover : Ono lovely hanj shostretcU'd for aid, And ono was round her lover. "Come back I come back 1" ho cried in grief "Across this stormy water ! And I'll forgive your Highland chief, -My daughter 1-oh my daughter 1" Tvvas vain : tho laud waves lash'd tho shore, Jteturn or aid preventing : 'I ho waters wild w ent o'er his child. And he was left lamenting. The humorous ruffian of tho Oil City "Derrick" gives a prose version of tho nbovn romantic poem of Campbell's. It is n much more matter of fact statement of the case tuan tho poet s, and brings tlio young couple out in a good deal better shape : A chieftain to the Highlands bound clips. "lioatman, do not tarry, nnd I'll give to thee a uoiiar and a-half to row us across the lake." "Xovv who be ye would cross Loch-Gyle this dark and stormy night ?" asked tho fer ryman, with much curiosity, "What is that to you, you bald-headed snip of the valley?" replied the chieftain, growing pale about the gills. '.'I'll lmy you a good round sum for your services ; it ap pears to me your interest in the matter should end there, ha you renulre the pedi gree of every man, woman and child you uikc amiss in your lniernal scow? If it wasn't that I'm in a hurry I'd smack vnur jaws for your impudence, but as it dis playing a naiuiiul ol coin, "as it is, I'm the chief of Ulva's Isle, and this Lord Ullln's Daughter. His horsemen hard behind us ride, and should they overtake us here in the glen it would go hard with us." Out spoke the hardy Highland wight. while he unlocked his skid and told them to get iu, "I'll go, my chief, I'm ready ; but, considering the terrible storm, I hope you win make uivvo Hollars ; although as a mat ter of act, I do not venture forth for a mere money consideration, but for your winsome lady. I have been there to snmo extent my self, and can appreciate, the situ ition ; so, oy my word, t he bonny bird in danger shall not tarry. Sit a little more in the middle to trim the boat, please, and here we go I" Hy this tune the storm grew loud aimce. the water vvrnilh was shrieking, nnd things loot-en most almighty dark, lint still, as wilder grew the storm, and as tho night grew drearer, adown the glen rode at least a lozen men, vvi.th old Ullin at the head on a cream-colored mule. "On, haste thee. haste!" the lady cries: "though tempest around us gather. I'll meet the raging ot tlie storm, but not my angry pa." So on they rode amid the roar of the waters fast prevailing, and when Lord Ullin reached the shore his wrath w as dreadful to behold. And no wonder. I'or.sore d'smayed, through storm and shade, he discovered his daughter out iu the boat, with a smile on her lip and salt spray in her eye, nnd both arms around her lover. l or a while it seemed that he would take it out of his hired men and the cream-colored mule,as he declared ho would have tho former beheaded as soon as ho got home, and the latter he was hammering over the cars with a club. Presently he took an other tack : "Come back I come back 1" he cried In grief, across the stormy water, "and I'll forgive your Highland boy.uiy daughter! oh, my daughter !-and also settle the bill with the ferryman." Hut the young lady could not be caught so easily. Xeither could the young man, who told the ferryman to press on, and then turning around in the boat, still keeping one arm about his sweetheart, to prevent her falling out, called to the old gentleman : "Much obliged for your kind invitation, my dear sir, but we will not come back at present. Vou can expect u, however, in the course of a week or leu days. Till then adieu !" Lord Ullin called again. 'Twas vain ; the loud waves lashed the shoro ; re turn, they wouldu't ;tliluk of it. In fifteen minutes they were ou tho other side, the fer ryman was wondering what he would do with a twenty dollar gold piece, and the young couple were inquiring the way to the neatest justice of the peace. iNCltllASi: tub Lav.

BLOOMSBURG, PA., Select Story. UXIiY A KAIOIKII. HV MAIlV ORACH IIAI.l'INn. Quito an Interested nnd anxious group had gathered In Jlrc Wilson's dressing room ono pleasant morning In June. It consisted of Mrs. Wilson nnd her three uninarriid daughters, and the subject under such ani mated and anxious discussion was how and whero they should open their usual Bummer campaign. It lias always been an interesting subject, nnd, to tho maternal element, attended with considerable anxiety, but never such a mat ter of perplexity, almost amounting to de snalr, as now. The contents of tho various wardrobes had been laid out and examined j silks and muslins, cambrics and lawns, sufficient, It would seem, for a dozen, and yet the two cider JIiscs Wilson declared, with tears In their cyc, that they had nothing, absolute ly nothing fit to wear. It is noteworthy with what surprising unanimity the two sisters agreed on this point, who so seldom agreed on any otlier. Mrs. Wilson looked with dismay upon the finery spread out before her, after listening to the above assertion, 'I'm sure, my dears,' she ventured to say, 'some of these arc hardly worn, and with a little alteration 'Xovv, mamma 1' interrupted llelle, 'why will you talk so ridiculously.vvhen you know that there is not a thing hero but what is wretchedly out of style ? And as to alter ing anything, it always gives me a pain in the side to sew, nnd I'm not going to Sara toga all fagged out, if I never go I' Of course, this settled that. It is a littlo curious what a small amount of work will 'fag' a girl 'all out' who can danco until the break of day without the slightest incon venience. 'There's one thing cerfain,' said Lucy, the second daughter, 'we've got to have at least one new dress.' 'I don't know whero it's coming from, then,' responded Mrs. Wilson, sinking down wearily into a chair. 'It was as much as I could do to get your pa to consent to your going at all. It was 2 o'clock last night be foro he gave in, and then, I verily believe it was from pure weariness and inability to keep awake any longer.' M. Wilson said this with the air of a woman determined to perform her duty at all hazards, and anxious to obtain credit for the same. ISut it seemed to have quite the contrary eflect upon Josie, the youngest daughter, who had not before spoken, but who now burst forth : 'I declare, if it isn't a sin and a shame, mamma, for you to worry pa sol' Mrs. Wilson cast a reproachful look upon the speaker. 'I will say, Josie, that jou are the most ungrateful child I ever saw I I'd like to know how much money I'd get out of your pa if I didn't worry it out. But that's all the thanks I get for lying awake nights scheming and planning bow to give you a chance to get settled in life.' 'I'd thank you for not doing so. I'm not going to Saratoga or Long liranch. In the first place, I know that pa can't allbrd it. And then I promised Mary Croflen that I would visit her this summer.' Though Mrs. Wilson affected to be dis pleased at this announcement, she was se cretly relieved. ltelle and Lucy were very well suited with this arrangement, too. Josie was very handy at furbishing up and making over, and if she was determined to bury herself in a country farm-house, she would not need to do so much of that for herself, and could therefore devote more time to them. And so busy did they keep her during the two weeks that followed, that Josio was glid enough to see the big trunks all packed and waiting in the hall. To save expense, Mrs. Wilson had ar ranged to dismUs tho servants and shut up the house, with the exception of one room for her husband, who was to take his meals at his sister's. 'Of course, she won't charge him any thing, so that will be one item saved,' re marked Mrs. Wilson, as she regarded com placently the eflect of Hell's new dress which her management had secured. 'As though pa would board there for nothing,' was Josie's indignant rejoinder, 'when Uncle William has such a hard time to get along.' 'Well, it your pa chooses to pay when he needn't and it isn't expected of him, it's his own loss. For my part, I don't seo what's the good of having relations if you can't make use of them.' Mrs. Wilson certainly believed in making her relations useful, carrying out that be lief to its fullest extent, wherever it was practicable, as somo of them knew to their cost. Kven her love for her daughters par took of the selfishness of her intensely sel fish nature, her chief anxiety being to get them 'oil' her hands,' and in a manner that would reflect as much credit ou herself as possible. Hut they were gone at last, and Josio was at liberty lo make her own simple prepara tions, which it did not takeher long to com plete. The father and daughter had a nice quiet tea together. Josie was going on the mor row, and as, sitting opposite him, pouring out his tea, she saw tho hard lines soften in his careworn face, and how happy he was in her society, her heart reproached her for leaving him. I've half a mind not to go, papa ; it seems too bad to leave you here all by your self.' Hut Mr, Wilson would not he,ir of thU. 'I iusist on your going j you have been working hard aud need a change. My life would be much the same, any way,' 'You may expect me Iu three vveeks.papa,' smiled Josie, from the car window, the next morning, 'You'll want your little house keeper by that lime, I know.' And Mr. Wilson went back to the corrod I' g auxletles which had made him au old man before his time, thanking God for this bit of siiuahine, and which left its glow iu the heart long after it had vanished. There were only a few passeugers for Hay bridge, a small country town in the Interior of the .State, though there were the usual loungers upon the platform of the station, as Josio stepped out. Hut they soon scat tered, leaving her to stare blankly around for the conveyance that she supposed would be waiting for her. FRIDAY, MAY J6. She walked clear around the station, looking In every direction, but not a vehic le was in sight, except a rough-box wagon, with a board across it, drawn by a pair of spirited black horses, who stamped their feet nnd tossed their heads as. If impatient lo be olf. A man stood besido the restive creatures, who jet seemed to bo under perfect con trol. ' There, Jenny I He easy, Kate 1' he said, patting the satlu-smooth skin and speaking very much as a mother would to a child. The baggage-master was standing near a pile of trunks and parcels. 'Is this your trunk, MIs?' he said, a Josio approached him. 'Yes. I was expecting friends to meet me, but they are not here. There must be some mistake.' 'I know most of the peoplo around here. What mtght thero names be?' 'Crofton.' 'V!iy,bless nie.you've got ofTat the wrong station. They live at North Haybridge, fivo miles beyond.' 'When does tho next train leave?' 'To-morrow morning.' Josie looked tho dismay that she certain ly felt at this announcement. 'It's too bad, I declare,' said tho good natured official, pitying Josie'a evident dis tress. Then, as his eye fell upon the owner of the team, who was looking towards them,he added : 'If this ain't a streak of luck I Here's John Manning, their next neighbor. Ho can take you along just as well as not.' 'John, here's a young woman that's got o(T at tho wrong statiou. She want's to go to Crofton's. I tell her that she can ride with you. The young man removed his straw hat, revealing a forehead broad and full, and whose whiteness contrasted strongly with tho healthful brown of the cheeks be low. 'I shall bo very happy if tho young lady has no objection to riding with a farmer, and in a farmer's wagon.' Tho admiration so clearly visible in tho honest blue eyes that met her own, made Josie's cheeks redden, 'If it will not bo too much trouble,' As the young man listened to those low, softly-spoken words, he felt that nothing tho speaker could ask would bo any trouble at all. Springing to work, he oon improvised quite a comfortable scat for Josio by passing a ropo from one stake to another, just back of Ihe board in front, throwing a thick, oft blanket over tho whole. 'Glad to be released, Jenny and Kate boro them swiftly along the winding country road, dotted here and there by farm houses, nest led down among the trees and shrubbery. As soon as Joie got a little used to it she enjoyed her elevated and novel position, and which gave her a fine view of the beautiful country through which they were passing. Her companion smiled at her enthusiastic exclamations and comments.seeming to take pleasure in the pleasure so frankly and in nocently expressed. 'Do you think you would like to live in the country?' he said, stealing an admiring glance at the glad young face. 'Above all things,' responded Josie. 'That is,' she added, alter a moment's pause, 'if papa could be here, too. I wisli he could be, just for n little while: he would eniov it so. I'apa whs brought up on a farm, aud it would seem like old times to him. I heard him say once that ho wished ho had never left it.' I had a strong desire when a boy to go to tho cily where I could have chance to get rich, and not have to work so hard. Hut I am an only son au only child since last winter here tho speaker's eyes saddened. 'I promised father, just beforo bodied, that l wouldn't leave tho farm whilo mother lived, and I don't know that I caro to do so now.' I wouldn't, if I were in your place.' said Josie, with a wie shake of her pretty head. it's dreadlul Hard times in the city. Kvery body is groaning about them, which makes it dismal enough. And as to working hard, I'd like to know who works harder than pa Iocs. It's ever so much nicer here. The honest young fellow, whose heart was in bis eyes, inwardly hoped that she would always think so. lliere's whero I live,' he said aloud. poiuting to a house with wide piazza run nlng around two sides, and which looked very plea-ant amid the green verdure that surrounded it. Young Manning drew the reins at the gate, inside of which a pleasant-f.iced,silver-haired woman was standing. Hire s the mail, mother,' ho said: tossing down somo papers and pamphlets. 'Heen lonely any? I'm going to take this young lady to Mr. Crofton's. My mother, Miss Wilson.' The young man took leave of Josie with a feeling at his heart such as he had never experienced before. 'How pretty she is 1' he thought, 'aud as good as pretty, I am sure.' 'What an honest aud pleasant face I' I wonder if I shall oversee him again?' This was what she thought. Josie did see him again and quite often. The Mannings and Crofiom were not onlv neighbors, but very ititimate. .Mary Crofton had been strongly attached to Mrs. Maun ing's only daughter, who died the preceding winter. She spent a good deal of time at her houso and Josie frequently went with her. Mary was never weary of praisiug John j 'ho was such a good son and so intelligent, steady aud industrious.' Joliu soon got over his shyness with the city girl, who took so kindly to country ways that it seemed as if she had always lived there. He used to walk home with her, Mary considerately lingering by the gate to talk with bis mother, boih well pleased at the turn affairs wcro taking. Then there were rides aud walks, pic-nlcs and social gatherings, at all of which John and Josie had a fashion of gettlug oil' by themselves a fashion that every one seemed to humor and understand. And so the happy days vveut ou, each day binding those young, lov ing hearts more closely together. When Josie returned to the city which was two weeks after she intended, she had a pleas ant story to whisper into her father's ear. 'If you love him and he is worthy of you,' he said, in reply to the query with which it ended, Josie's quick ear detected the sadness that underran theso words. 'You know you promised to liyo with me when I was married, papa,' sho niiispered, laying her cheek closely to his. 'And ou a form, too I Won't It be delightful ?' 1S79. Hello nnd Lucy returned lnme with that conscious air of subdued triumph nnd Im portance peculiar lo 'engaged young ladles.' Having attained tho end and aim of their existence, thcro was nothing further for them to hope or expect. I'rotn henceforth they wern to Impose upon their laurel, floating down tho stream of lifo with no thought or care for anything but the preseul enjoyment. Hello's capture was a Wall street broker, owning a fabulous amounton paper. Lucy's was the son of a mllliumire, whose sole am bition seemed to be to spend as quickly as possible tho money that his father had la bored so hard to acquire. They made no attempt todisgulso theirsurprie and disdain when they heard of Josie'a modest conquest, 'Only a farmer I' sniffed JUrs. Wilson. 'Xeverdld I dream that one of my daught ers would stoop to that I Hut, I suppose, if you have your father's approval you don't car-) lor mine.' 'Of course, you cant expect us to visit you,' said llelle, loftily. Tho connections of Charles Augustus aro all of the highest nnd most aristocratic .character, aud it couldn't be thought of.' Certainly not,' echoed Lucy. 'A wife has to take the position of her husband, which Is something that you had better think of.' Josie had thought of it, and very happy thoughts they were, too. The financial disasters of tho three yars that followed made quite a change In the surroundings of all the above, with the ex. ception of Josio and her husband. Out of the wreck of Mr. Wilson's business nothing was left but the honor nnd integrity which shone all tho moro brightly from tho temporary gloom that shrouded him. His wife took their altered fortunes very hardly, fairly fretting nnd worrying herself into the grave, where she was laid a few months af ter. Penniless nnd unfitted for auythlng higher, the husbands of Hollo aud Lucy were giau to accept posiuons.one as conductor on a city enrj the other a third-rate clerkship. Josie does not see much of her sisters, but many a barral of apples and crock of butter find their way to them from tho Manning farm. Almost every pleasant afternoon a gray-haired, placid-looking old man can be seen on the Western piazza of the farm house, frequently with a grandchild on eith er knee. It is Mr. Wilson, who often thnuks Ood that ono of his daughters married "only a farmer." IIETWEEX TWO FAITHS. Joseph K. W. Kaiser, son of Jacob Kai ser, a cigar dealer of Hroome street.Nevvark, on April 27, 1877 was convened from Jud aism to Roman Catholicism, much In th" chagriu of his father and otlier relatHes,vvli are all orthodox Jews. It seems that J. -seph had been keeping company for somo time before that with a pretty Catholic girl, Miss Kate E. Worth, a member of St. Col uniba's church, llev. Father Iteilly, ou Thoma-i stieet. As the story runs, sho would not marry him unless ho renounced Judaism nnd joined lie church, lie did so, as stated. Six weeks laior, ou tho 5th of June, 1877, the pair were married by Itev. Father Petrard, an Italian priest at tached to Sf Columba's church. Meanwhile Joseph's people were so greatly incensed that they held a mock fuueral and buried his clothing and other effects. The father was particularly angered, and forbade Jo seph's name to be meutioned in his presence or in his house. Recently tho young man fell seriously ill, and for several days past has been gradually sinking into his grave, a victim to f consumption. He lies on his deathbed at his home, Xo 05 Howard street. AX KXTHAOIlMNAUY SCENE. At tho house of the dying man Sunday an extraodiuary scene waswitnessed. While llio sorrowing wife and her relatives were attending Joseph by his bedside, suddenly his father and otlier relatives entered the house. Iu the bedroom where Joseph lay was a small altar, with a few lighted cm dies and crucifix. At sight of this the old man turned his head and made contemp tuous mot'ons. The father went to his son and said : 'Joseph do you intend to dio a Catho lic?' 'I do, father,' replied the dying man. 'Won't you come home and dio in ihe filth of your fathers the faith of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob ?' 'Never,' was the reply of Joseph. The father then muttered somo malediction and threatening to seize tho body and havo it buried as a Jew when Joseph died, left the house. During all this a great crowd col lected in front of the house, the gathering being part Jews and part Catholics. The police were notified to preserve order, but beyond considerable loud talk nothing oc curred, Joseph was still alive Sunday IIKM'INIl THE l'KEAL'HEl!. A sense of duty often causes some ludi crous imistakes, ns the following story will illustrate : Near Dumfries lived a pious fam ily who bad adopted hu orphan who was regarded ns half-witted. U had imbibed strict views on religious matters, however, and once asked his adopted mother if she did not think it wrong for tho people to como to church and fall asleep, (laying no better regard to the service. She replied sho did. Accordingly beforo going to church next Sunday, ho filled his pockets witli apples. One bald-headed old man, who invariably went to sleep duriug the sermon, particularly attracted his attention Seeing him at last nodding and giving nasal eridenco of being In the 'laud of dreams,' he slruck the astounded sleeper a blow with au apple on the top of his bald plate. Tho minister and aroused congregation at once turned around and gazed iudlg.ianlly at tho boy, who merely said to the preacher, at be took another apple iu his hand, with a so ber, honest expression of countenance; 'You preuch j I'll keep 'cm awake.' Women Never Think ! If Ihe crabbed old bachelor who uttered this sentiment could but witness the inteuse thought, deep study and thorough investi gation of women in determining the best iiititlclnes to keep th ir families well, and would nolo their sagacity aud wisdom in se lecting Hop Hitters as the best aud demon btrallng it by keeping their families in per petual health, at a mere nominal exneuse. he would be forced to acknowledge that such sentiments aro baseless aud false, THE COI.UMHIAN, VOL.

'tic was no kind of a doctor for an alms house, anyhow, said tho steward, referring to the late resident physician of the institu tion, 'He hadn't the qualifications,' 'How do you mean ?' 'Why, he'd get Interested in a novel or something ele maybe, and he'd sit up there In his room and never go near tho pnupert. And when I'd nk him If he wasn't going to see the sick ones to-day, he'd look up and say ! " I'm not very well myself, this morning, Jones j supposln' you just step over and put mustard plasters on the entire institution. 'So I'd have to obey orders, you know, and I'd plaster up tho whole crowd.slck and well, nnd pretty soon you could hear those paupers howling worse than a menagerie, nnd see 'em hopping about as if they were dancing plain cotillions. Hut they had to bear it. Doctor's orders, you know ; and there he'd sit, and read, and read, and read, until ho found if tho heroine got married or not; the plasters couldn't come off until he said so. It was awful.' 'Was he always that way ?' 'Not always, t,f course. Sometimes he'd practice on the paupers to find out tho ef fect of medicines. One lime ho ladled out a bucketful of paregoric among the Inmates, and put the whole crowd asleep for fivo days. Never wnked up ouco. 11 was like a grave-yard, only the snorting. A short tlmo altervvard he gave them ipecac, and for a week thero were eighty-five paupers going around with asthma, wheezing like an omnibus horse with the heaves; nnd last September he trepanned three bald-headed paupers and set brass door-plates in the top of their skulls. Nothing nt all the matter with them, ou ly ho said he thought they would look nice with lids on top of them, aud he wanted to keep his hand in tor the operation.' 'Did tho victims like it?' Liko it ? Certainly they didn't. Hut he was allowed by the directors to do what he pleased.' 'One time, when he wanted a bono for something or otlier, ho took a rib nut of tho side of a tramp from Matich Chunk. Said Ihe operation was necessary to keep n man from going into the consumption, lie had the rib made up into suspender buttons, I suspect. And he used to experiment with transfusion of blood, too. He would take blood from an Irishman and put it in the veins of a German, and vice versa, until the Irishman at last could speak nothing but German, and tho German talked with a bro gue. Always trying somo ridiculous plan or otlier. I never saw such a man.' 'Was he successful in his practice?' 'That depends on what you call success ful.. If a man was real sick and the nurie would go for Dr. Rlazir, tho man would send off a farewell message to his relations, tell where he liked to be buried, ay his last words, and make up his mind for the worst. He'd flit offbeforo morning. In. seri ous cases the doctor was regarded as sure death around here. I know when Hold the county undertaker that ho was to leave, tho undertaker sat down and cried like a child. Said it wasn't right to take tho brent out of mati's niouth iu such hard times. He got so much for eery burial, you know. And one of the directors votexl straight along not to dismiss Dr. Blazer, because, the director said, thero were too many paupers anyhow, and if tho number could be steadily re duced by legal means it would be a good thing l'or the tax-payers.' 'Why was he discharged ?' 'Why, I'll tell you. It bcems that he was a partner if one of the contractors for Ifur nishing tlio poor-house with victuals. Ho kept it a secret ; but we all noticed that he used to go around with a kind of two-horse power, double acting stomach-pump. About three days in tho week he'd start to ward No. 8. Consequence was, tho inmates would be so raging hungry by dinner time that they'd eat liko -anacondas. After dinner, out'd come that pump again, and by supper time the inmates would be willing to eat paving-stones and brick-bats, they'd bo so near starved. And so ho'd go on until the commissary departmcnt'd be bankrupted every twenty-four hours. 1 believe that man could have pumped tho whole ltussian army in a day with that machine. It Used to turn somo of the feebler paupers nearly wrong side out. So tho directors began lo Inquire what made the expenses so heavy, and when they called the doctor up, about it, lie owned up, and Mr. Perkins said that as three more weeks of that stomach-pump would put the county treasury into the hands of a receiver unless it could incur a second national debt, ho tho't tho doctor had better go. So he was dismissed.' 1IETTEI1 IjATE TIIAX NEVEK.

MV1.N0 TEX DAYS (IX TOltACCI) AXI) SNOW. In the chronicles of heroism, with the story of Casablanca, who: "Stood on the burning deck Whence all but ho had lied," and Ihn Inspiring talo of "Flow Horalins held the bridge In the brave days of old," we bespeak a placo for Hobby Casey the faithful aud intrepid mail carrier of M on tana, Casey carried whnt is known as tho horseback mall, but which i, in fact, car ried by a two-wheeled vehlclo like a sulky, from Sun lllver to the Twenty-eight Mllo Springs, On the 27th uliimo ho started from the former'place. There was a blinding snow storm at tho time, and tho track across the prairie was wholly lost. As he did not reach tho end of his drivo at tho appointed tlmo It was assumed that he had lost his way; and this theory proved to be well founded, Tnero wero not wanting bravo men both at Helena and Sun Itiver to un dertake the search for the missing man J but their most arduous efforts wero iuvain. On the 3d ult , William Itowo reached Benton and was Informed of tbe circumstance. Tho weather was fer-rfully c.ild ; but this did not deter him from the attempt that humanity dictnlcd, Mounted on a hone ho set forth, and indue time found a dim tra:k, whero it seemed probable that Casey bad left the main road, Following this his labors wero rewarded on the (ith by fiuding tho driver about twenty milis north of Twenty-eight Mile Spring. Wheu Cayy was found ho was silting In his cart, which the horse was drawing slowly and painfully along. He was iu adoze, nnd Mr. ll-ivva shouted to him otico or twice btlbre he was roued to con sciousness. It was tin n found that his right foot and leg were fiozen nearly to tho knee and thai Ms left foot was iu the same condi tion. It is beli.'wd that his injuries are not serious, and that he will not suffer the loss of either limb. His st'.ry w.isnjin told ; and with his rec ollection ol his experience, and what Mr. Howe learned in his search the tale is won derful beyond fiction The driver bad been waiideiing over that trackless prairie for ten days and nights, without food and shelter, nnd with a temperature never above zero. All ibis time lie had moved in an almost uerfect circle, and had picketed bis horso and camped every night in almost the same spot. Moro rematkable still, he had daily passed within a mile and a halfof the Twenty-eight Mile House, which was lilsdestiua ti.in. All this time, amid sufferings that would havo crushed an ordinary man, Hob Casey had only thought that he must stay with the mail aud get it through, whatever bcfcl him. And he did ; not n single pack age was lost. Starving, half frozen, and dazod by exposure and privation, it was not of hlmelf he thought; ids duty was still up permost iu his mind. Here was heroic stuff; how many such can tho postal service boast of? During all these terrible days and nights tho only thing that passed his lips was tobacco and snow. He had with him a good supply of the former article at the start but as day wore into uigLt, and. night into day, h- L-i.-g.in hoarding it with as much avidity as ever did a miser his gold. Mon tana Independent for January, ALL A1I0UT THE I'ULSE. Every intelligent person should know now to ascertain the state of the pulse in health ; then by comparing it with what it was when ho was ailing, he may have some idea of the case. Parents should know the uealtli pulse of each child, as now and then u per son is bom with a remarkably slow or fast pulse, aud tho very case in hand may be of that peculiarity. An infant's pulse is 110, n child of seven years about SO; and from twenty to sixty years it is 70 beats a minute declining to 00 at fourscore. A healthful grown person's pule beats 70 times a minute. '1 here may be good health down to sixty ; but if the pulso exceeds seventy there is a dinn-e. The machine is working itself out ; there is fever and In flammation somewhere, and the body is feeding on itself as in consumption, when tho pulse is quick, that is over sixty, gradu ally increasing with decreased chances of cure until it reaches 110 or 120, when death comes before many days. When tho pulse is over seventy for months, and there is a slight cough, tbe lungs are affected. niUM.WI FllUIT AND OUXAMEXTAL TIIKES.
