Two young men went into the woods near
Aurora, III., to play a game of cards. As
tbey were rival lovers, and had not previ
ously spoken to each other for months, it is
conjectured that the girl in dispute was the
stake that they played for. Tho winner
however, (was not permitted to gain the
prize, for his opponent instantly shot 111 ui
through tho heart. An effort to settle rival
ry by chance linda not leas sad result in Tex
as. The two suitors were convinced that
the young woman would accept either if the
other would let her alone, and they agreed
to throw dice to decide, which should give her
up. The loser honestly eudeavored to keep
the compact, hut the woman refused to be
disposed of In that way, and wrote to him
that she would marry nobody else, and would
not even see tho winner, The latter would
not believe that his competitor had tried to
retire from the contest, and so murdered
BLOOMSBURG, PA., FRIDAY, MAY 23.

'And you ask me to bcllevo this?'
'I aik you to believe nothing ; I simply

that tho may shed no tears for mo.'
It was tho old story absence and a fairer
face, had broken former ties. Had Hart
Whitney lived, he would have been worse
than dead to me.
A shock, bewilderment, and then I would
not believe; I clung defiantly to tho mem
ories that sanctified my dead, What more

stranger's story, unsustalned by proof.
And yet Instinctively I felt It true. Stand

with eyes Hashing beneath my suspicion,
l'hlllp Rarringer was not a man to disbelieve.
With his proud answer my last hope vanish

down at my mourning robes.

He paued, abruptly dropping the

grew so oft and low 'believe me, I nev
er meant to tell you. I havo acted to-dav
from an impulse I cannot too much regret ;
because to you I must always be the bird of
ill-omen, coming only to cause you pain.'
He lelt no room for answer. Swiftly I
heard his footsteps receding from me forever
thought, gratefully, rhillp Rarringer was
ght ; he was a biid ot ill-omen ; bringing
nly pain to me. It was a relief to havo him
rop out of my life.
I would forget Hart Whitney. I would
come to smile at his perfidy. Philip IJar-
nger was a poor prophet ; that might be.
Nevertheless, I ponder : Not to me, but to
e fair girl in the Indies belonged thesanct-
fyitig memories, the heritage of tears. And
so I brought tho letters, the dark lock, the
miniature, upon which I dared not look,and
made of them a funeral pile, watching
with stoic countenance till it dwindled down
And so gladly I would have buried mem
ory, hut in vain ; my lovo for Hart Whit
ney had been too strong, too abiding to die
with his perfidy ; and though daily my
faith grew in Philip liarringer's story, it was
but to wound deeper the poor heart in which
love was doubly dead.
As usual, man's falsity wrought its work,
grew skeptical, distrustful ; there was
henceforth no truth, no beauty, in life for
me. Moreover, there was dissatisfaction ; I
had lost a woman's hopes, a woman's mis
sion, The slill life of womanhood lost its
charm for me. I must have work, action
what it mattered little, so I was saved from
In various ways I sought it, but fate feem-
ed contrary ; there was no opening for me.
So I pondered wearily one morning as I un
folded the country paper, when suddenly
my eyes met an advertisement. It read :
'Mrs. Ethbcrt Thorne desires a governess.
Box 28, Wabash.'
I had grasped vainly after similar straws,
but this time my application proved success
ful, and a week Inter found mo whirling
way to the distant kingdom wherein I was
It was at the close of a dull, drizzly day
that I reached Wabash. Drearily enough I
stepped upon the platform and stood in the
dim light, waiting to be recognized.
'My brother will meet you,' had written
Mrs. Ethbert Thorne. What would bo be
like ? What would be my first impressions
of the household at Sunnybank ?
I had not long to speculate, for presently
my wraps were taken from me, I was con
scious of a tall man standing beside me,
speaking words which the wild shriek of the
engine sunk into nothingness. Then I took
the arm olfered, and went where the carriage
Was I dreaming ? Had I seen a vision
n the dim light? Mechanically I entered
the carriage, mechanically made room for
the one who was to lollow me.
Hut tho figure without did not enter ; the
door closed, and a crisp voice said j
Drive on, Peters ; I will walk.' ,
This time there was no mistaking ; there
was but one such voice In my memory, and
that was Philip liarringer's.
'My brother will meet you I' had written
Mrs. Ethbert Thorne. '1 am living on his
estates. 'she bad previously explained. This
then, was Philip liarringer's sister, aud I
was going to his home.
With the man whom I had rejoiced to see
dropping from ray life forever, I was destin
ed to pass months in the intimacy of hi
own hearth. So fate had ordered, and
rationally I must abide.
liut fate seemed bard. I had never been
able to forgive Philip liarringer, my bitter
ness had grown toward him with the days,
He might have spared me Hart Wbituey'i
perfidy ; but for him I might be only a wo
man mourning a dead lover, not the wreck
He was always the bird of ill-omen, bring
irg pain to me. He knew of my coming
hither ; he might have spared it to me.
There was one comfort ; he had not for
gotten ; he had chosen to walk on in th
drizzly darkness ; he would keep aloof from
A night at Sunnybank brought wisdom
I descended to brakfast in a calmer frame
of mind. Philip Rarringer must be naught
to me ; that he had made life harder nr me,
I must temporarily forget. My business was
with Mrs, Ethbert Thorne.
I found that lady alone In the breakfast
room ; a gay little lady she proved on ac
rjuaintance, so full of gossip, so full, especial
ly, of Philip Ilartiuget's praises, that bus!
neas must wait.
Iliad not been many mlnulcs In her so
ciety beforo I began to be exceedingly an
noyed not at her rhapsodies; to these I had
quietly resigned myself, lint there was
something marked in her glances, a search
What did It mean 1 I questioned. Was
I yotiDger, fairer, than she liked f Did she
fear dlspos!esioti ol Philip liarringer ?
Hut Mrs. Ethbert Thorno was not ono to
talk long with eye.
'My dear,' bIiu said, suddenly, 'I really
should not speak at all but tho resemblance
is so very marked.'
What did it mean 1 I stared at her open-
'You do not understand, of course, she
continued, merrily ; 'there's a portrait of a
very beautiful young girl In Phil's parlor
much more beautiful than you partlon me,
my dear ; but, oh, so very like. It is such
a mysterious picture, too. Who is it ? I
have asked Phil a dozen times, if once. 'A
lady who was engaged to a friend of mine
in tho Indies,' is his invariablo reply. My
dear, I really wish you could see it ; only I
would not dare take you into Phil's private
parlor ; he bever allows si rangers there.'
I had begun listening to a gossip's story;
I sat at its cuding,pale and still. There wns
then, in this house, n picture of Evelyn
Mitrston ; somewhere the face so fatal to me
smiled down from the walls. How I had
longed to look upon her what riches I
would have sacrificed at this moment to see
her painted self.
Much more beautiful than you, but, oh,
so very like I Was thi, then, tho key to
Hart Whitney's perfidy ; was it but a fairer
copy that had won his fickle heart?
What did Evelyn Marstnn on Philip liar
ringer's walls a queen enthroned in his
private apartment, oti which no i-tratigor's
eyo might look ? Perhaps ho was her hope
less lover ; perhaps the accepted ono alio
soon would wed.
I was routed by n light touch on my
"houlder ; Mrs. Ethbert Thorno was finally
awake to tho btiMnc.-s so lung delayed,
'You will teach the children, o( course,
my dear. I will take you to my study
room.' I followed her down the broad hall, striv
ing to still the emotion that had so distracted
me. Suddenly she turned and pointed to a
'That is Phil's parlor,' she whispered ; 'if
o only dared go in.'
I gave but a furtive glance at it, but from
that moment it haunted me, Daily, as I
passed it, my pulso quickened, ever rebelli-
ously I went by. Who more than 1 had a
ght to see Evelyn Mnrston, to know how
fair she was?
Three months, and this longing had be-
como a mania, with dilhculty suppressed.
hrico I had stood by the wooden Cerberus,
ith my hand upon the knob. Shame hith
erto had deterred me, but the time had come
to see Evelyn Marstou even at the risk of
So I decided, ono day in autumn, when
opportunity seemed ripe. Children and
hilip liarringer had just vanished down
tho roadway ; Mrs. I.tuuert Ihorne was
dozing sweetly ; Sunnybank was mule,
Tlio time hail come. I would steal in,
looked upon the face that won my loyer,nnd
be forever satisfied. With beating heart 1
rept down the hallway; with hushed breath
It was easy finding Evelyn Marston; there
as but one picture on the walls. In th
far corner I descried it, with strained eyes
tirrying onward, looking up finally to see
to look again and stare, l'or tho face be
fore me was not Evelyn Marston's, but my
owu mine as it had looked in the old girl
days when Hart Whitney went away.
There was no mistake, I remembered tho
picture well ; one of the many I had given
him, ono I had wondered not to find among
tho articles Philip Rarringer brought back
Much moro beautiful, but, ob, so very
like ! One mystery was solved, Hut one.

TIIK KAKIIlS OF INDIA.
The religion of tho Hindoo teaches them
that men become salnt, by disfiguring their
bodies and living in nakedness and filth.
Theso Hindoo saints are called fakirs (pro
nounced fah-tccrs). They form a class of
people by themselves, generally wandering
about from place to place, having no fixed
home. They deem It a vlrtuo to bo filthy
and almost naked. They neither cut their
hair nor comb It, twisting it about their
heads or letting it hang loosely. They paint
their naked bodies or rub ashes over them,
so as to make themselves as repulsive as
possible. A few years ngo there were
said to bo two millions of those fakirs
in India. Tho people greatly reverenco
them, seeking their blessing uud dreading
their curse. They aro great beggars, and no
ono dares refuse tliem a gift. Tlio proudest
brahmin will bow down boforo one of these
wretched creatures whom he happens to
meet upon the street.
There is a class of these fakirs who give
themselves up to some special form of nelT
torture, nnd It Is astonishing what suirerings
they will endure. Occasionally one will
mako a vow to fasten his eyes on mi object
and never take them off while waking. Ho
will stand for days with fixed gaze as if he
were stone. Some of theso will sland on
one foot until their legs shrivel, and it be
comes impossible for them to walk. Others
will tie an arm over tho head, nnd keep it
there until it becomes rigid and useless. A
missionary tells of a fakir whom ho nuco
met who was making a pilgrimage to Hen
ares, a distance of 240 miles, by measuring
the whole distance with his body. He would
throw himself upon the ground, nnd then
placing his feet where tho head struck, ro
peat the process all day long.
AN" AN BCD DTK OF (IUKKX VICTORIA.
The Queen was not twenty years of age
ivhen she ascended the throne. Coming in
to pnise-islun of power with a heart fresh,
tender and pure, and with all iier instincts
inclined to mercy, we may be sure that
she found many things that tried her
strength of resolution to the utmost. Ota
bright, beautiful morning the youug queen
was waited upon at her palace, at Winsdnr,
bytheDukeol Wellington. He had brought
from London various papers requiring her
signature to mako them operative. One of
them was a sentence of court-martial pro
nounced against a soldier of the line, that
sentence was that he bo shot dead. TheQueen
looked upon the paper nnd then looked upon
tho wondrous beauties that nature had
spread to her view. 'What has this man
done ?' she asked. The dtiko lookt.l .it th"
paper, and replied : 'Ah I my royal mulrt ,
that man, I fear, is incorrigible, He has
deserted three times.' And can you not say
anything in his behalf my lord?' Welling
ton shook his head. 'Oh, think again, I
pray you !' Seing that her Majesty was so
deeply moved and feeling suro she would not
have the man shot in any event, lie finally
confessed that the man was bravo and gallant
and really a good soldier. 'Hut,' ho added,
'think of tho influence.' 'Influence I tho
IJtleeu cried, ber eyes flashing and her bo
som heaving with stvnt' emotion. 'Let it
be ours to yield influence. 1 will ry mercy
in this man's case, and I charge you, your
(race, to let mo know tho result. A good
soldier, you said, Oh, I thank you for that.
And you may tell him that your good word
saved him,' Then she took tho paper and
wrote, with a bold, firm hand, across the
dark page, tho bright saving word 'Pardon
ed !' The duke was fond of telling the story,
and lie was also willing to confess that the
giving of that paper to the pardoned soldier
gave him far more joy than ho could have
experienced from the taking of a city.
Massachusetts makes tho fourth State in
which women are allowed to vote for school
directors, the others being Kansas, Minne
sota and New Hampshire. As there are !iS7
women teachers in Massachusetts, and only
753 male teachers, and as women aro a good
deal concerned in getting their children off
to school.it seems reasonable to suppose that
the mothers are equally concerned with the
fathers in putting tho best sort of directors
in this important office.
The Massachusetts law provides that every
woman who is n citizen of tho Common-wealth,tweuty-ouo
years of age,and possessed
of the other qualifications of tiie voter (tho
ability to read and write,) may vote for
members of tho chool committees, on pre-
entation of her tax receipt, or if without
taxable property by paying a poll-tax of
two dollars, which is what tho male voter
:tys for voting tho ticket all through, for
everybody for every ofiiee. There are some
liscrepancieii, however, even iu this limited
irlvilege. Many matters with regard to the
ubllc schools aro decided in town meeting
that good old custom of getting at tho will
tho people being still in full force in
Massachusetts. Hut the women cannot vote
n town meeting, so they will pay their two
dollars for a veiy small slice indeed of the
whole loaf of electoral privileges. Doubt
ess, however, this discrepancy will be made
right by futuro enactments so fur as the
schools aro concerned, As there aro said to
be some 00,000 more women than men in
Massachusetts, the new order will probably
result in putting a few moro women iu the
school boards than lmvo hitherto gained ad
mission there even in enlightened lioston
itself. What new ideas may present them
selves because of this permissive act, what
impression will be made upon tho public
mind by the registration of women as voters
and by seeing them walk up to the polls to
oxercise their choice as citizens (limited,) it
is impossible to foresee. Hut in Hoston nlon
whero 71100 women pay taxes on seventy-fiv
millions of property, to say nothing of tli
111,000 women of the State whose property
is taxed at two hundred millions, it is likely
that this limited provision will bo sugges
tlvo of others, and as their money coes now
to pay for town improvements, it would not
be surprising if they should ask, meekly
for tho privilege to select a selectman in th
suburbs or tho councilmeii of the city who
upend It. Ledger,

Poslbly, but the minister would a great deal
rather see the gentleman lift his pew rent.

Well, hardly; wo should say he wouldn t.

the drum's color, trumpets sounding tho
flourish, and arms presented, and to on up
to the President, who is entitled to n salute
of twenty-one guns and tlio "highest honors

aud troops saluting, drums beating and trum

I.1FK IX SIISK11IA.
Siberia has long been not merely the polit
ical, but universal prison of Russia, capital
punishment being uow reserved for cases of
high treason and murder punished with
transportation for life. Hut in this trans,
portsllon thero aro many grades. Banish
ment to ono of tho border fortresses is its
nildest form, usually inflicted upon military
offenders. Next comes Western Siberia,
which, traversed by several commercial high
ways, containing many large towns, and in
constant communication with Itustia, offers
many advantages that more than one
criminal whose term Ins expired has remain
cd thero in preference to returning homo.
Eastern Siberia, called by the llussians 'Z,v
l!aikolaska,'(beyond Lake Baikal,) is dread
ed by tho convicts for its remoteness nnd
tcrility, it being a common saying among
them that "one year In the East is worse
than two in the West,' More terrible than
nil, however, is the sentence of hard labor in
tho mines, especially those of quicksilver,
which by its corrosivn action upon the bones
makes a certain and horrible dealh the inev
itable climax of tho penalty. Escape is all
but impossible, from the counties military
pickets, and the strictness of their surveil-
ance ; but as if to make assurance doubly
safe, the Itus-daii government is sending
many of its political prisoners to the new ac-
piirtd Island of Saghaliu, lying between the
Siberian coast and Japan. In the reign of
Nicholas, prisoners were often compelled to
march the whole distance with chains ou
their ankles; but happily this barbarity has

'No, fur obeyiu', I tell ye,' persisted lie ;

blazes, and mother had just been scrubbm'

walk right over that clean floor with your

Charley l!o, dead or nlive will always
bo tho subject of curious speculation, and
theories will be spun upon tho slenderest
threads at tho slightest provocation. The
latest view of tho cao is thus given by tho
New York correspondent of tho Philadelphia
J'rat. I wns speaking last night to n very
efficient detective ofllcer by the name of
Ooldlng, who has been In the New York
service twenty years. He has been repeat
edly sent to European countries for escaped
criminals, and recently brought homo from
Koulli America a forger from Pennsylvania
whom lie hail i.hacil around tho continent
first lo Catlan, then to Lima, and so on
down on the west coast and through Smith'
Sound Into the Atlantic, aud up to Monte
video, nnd finally caught him at Uio. I
said to this man : Havo you any theory as
to that boy, Charley itoss, who was stolen
'I have a very distinct theory,' he said,
'Some time after the boy's disappearance,
but a good while before Douglass nnd
Mo-her, his captors, were killed at Hay
Illdge, the body of n little boy with liht
brown hair was found near Hcrgen Point,
dressed in girl's clothes. The body had
been two or three months In the water when
found, and it was buried, no claim having
been made for it by anybody, nnd no notice
of any lost child in any of the papers of this
vicinity. When Douglass and Mosher were
shot, it was found that thfir resort was
about Iiergen Point, on the flats of Newark

'They were piiutes. Tbey generally
hauled their boat up ou tho mud about Ber

rob burges and other vessels that camo up
through tlio back kilns and down from New

could take flight from Jersey into New York
nt any time, or run up to Connecticut.
How do you account for such pirates be

the purpose of stealing that boy. They had
been seen around Mr. l'oss' house for sev

lived in a lonely lane, nnd tboso fellows
had tho short cut over to the York road. I
