MISS. t'AY'S IIAIKUIN. Tohn l-'ay wasleaviug the breakfast table. He laid a roll of bills besiile his wife's plate. 'The fifty dollars, Atiuic, I promised you for your new diess.' 'Kilty! Then you have really made it fifty f What a good John 1 I shall be able to tflve entiui;h out of it to buy Aunt Mnrin a real nice New Year's present. There nro very irood cloaks, shaggy and warm, marked down to $10 and $12 at Morton & liner's, and I am distresed Sunday nfier Sunday to see her walk into ohttrch in that old shawl. I could draw thn pattern of it with my eyes shut, nnd know that nothing but perversity keeps it Irom breaking away on her poor sharp shoulders.' 'Well, do as you dense; only make tho most you can of tho money. Fifty dollars do not grow on every tush in these times, and I should hardly have felt able to give it to you now but that Morton has been look ing at one of our steam heaters for his store though some parties down in Hartford of fered him one at a discount. So buy the cloak of him by nil means, if you get one.' And John struggled into his three-years old overcoat and hurried away. Little Mr. Fay turned the bills over nnd over in her hand. She had scarcely heard her husband'. last words. It was enough that he could nllbrd to give her the money and that it was hers to spend. He was her conscience in regard to money matters. With the intricacies ot business she had nothing to do. Should she run around to Mrs. Jupe's tit once nnd talk it over, and fiud out exactly how to send to New York fur sam ples of dress doods ? TheJupes were stylish peoplo who had recently removed into the neighborhood, having bought the very large lawn and the Very Binall cottage with a stable in the rear, which gave an air of elegance to the street of the pretty New England town where the Fays lived. Retweeu Mrs. Jupe and little Mrs. Fay the most, intimate relations had been established. They ran back and forth at all hours, a blind gate having been dis covered, at the foot ot Mrs. Fay's tiny flow er garden, which opened directly upon Mrs. Jupe's side lawn. The latter had already advised in regard to the new dress. 'You will never think of buying it here,' she had said. 'Morton & lirier's dress goods are so common I Every body in town dresses the same like mourn ers at a funeral I Why not run down to New York and buy something made up? You would save it in your dressmaker's bill.' Run down to New York I Mrs. Fay re garded a visit to the metropolis as the event of a lifetime to be ardently desired, but scarcely to be hoped for. And as for a dress maker, one day for such a functionary, for the purpose of baiting nnd 'trying on,' with three or four more from Susan Jane, who went out for seventy-live cents and was thankful to get that in these hard times- was the limit of her desires. And so Mrs. Fay had gone home filled with a desire to do this. To send to New York, to the envy of her less well informed neighbors ! To appear in a dress unlike any thing displayed in the town I She was not ordinarily a vain woman, but Mrs, Fay's ambition took fire at this spark of sugges tion. Hut John's countenance assumed a doubtful expression wheu the plan was spread out before him. 'I don't know about that,'he said, slowly, 'Do as you would like to be done by, is my motto, and how should I like to have everybody In town to run oft" to Haitford or New ork to buy the goods I offer lor sale. Patronize home Institutions, Annie ; spend your money where vou make it, and help to build up your own town, 1 say. Why, the country is going to ruin for the same reason Nothing in America will do for people, un less the maker Is shrewd enough to brand it with a foreign mark. We spend all our time and strength in gathering dollars to be sent out of the country. And what do we get for them? A lot of French fripperies nnd manufactured articles which need only to stand Bide by side with our own to show their inferiority.' 'Yes, John, but the dress I' Exports and imports are matters to be settled by graver heads, or to settle themselves. 'Iluy at Morton & lirier's.' They trade with me, and I should like to turn my inon ey Into their hendi,' BLOOMSBURG, PA., FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 'Hut their goodi are so 'common.' John. And wo all dress alike -like mutes at a fu neral,' 'Like what?' John Fay burst Into a loud laugh, 'You aro a dear little womau, Annie but you never originated that remark. I don't believe I like the style,' ho added, nf. ter n pause. 'But do ns you please, dear.' It was hard to say 'no' to his little wife. 'At least you can buy the cloak at Mor ton A. IJrlfr'a j and be sure and make the money go as far as you can.' 'I will, John j It shall go as far as New York I' she repllfd, with n happy laugh, throwing her arms around his neck and glv ng mm an enthusiatio hug. She wrote her letter to New York nt Mrs. Jupo's dictation, nnd tho samples came in due time. John turned them over quizzically. 'Couldn't you Judgo better of the color nnd quality to see them in a whole piece, rather than In such a scrap as this ?' 'O, what a silly John 1 Of course not : when I can examino them at my leisure now, with no saucy clerk to snatch them out of my hands or talk me into buying what 1 don't want nt till.' A long hour was spent In this Inspec tion. 'Do do you think it had better bo mixed goods or pis I ii?' John was good natured. He laid down his ncwpaper to raise the bits of cloth again in his great hands. 'Doyou call that mixed?: singling out a scrap all knobs and long.loose hairs, and vicing with Joeph's coat in col ors, the latest fashion of woven ugliness. l es, to be sure. 'Well, then, dear, I shouM say, let u have It plain.' So she chose a soft, warm basket cloth in dull maroon. Six yard, fight dollars I Hut it was double width, and these new goods were expensive. Tho prices ran ns high as five dollars a yard ; three was moderation. And there would be enough for a long sacrjue, and then last consideration of a prudent mind it would 'make over' ad mirably. Then the silk for this was to bo a hand some suit Mrs. Jupe had said that Bilks were to lie got at almost any price now. Anil not to be mean or buy a poor quality, Mrs. l ay hail fixed her price at n dollar and a half a yard. Hut a scrap at two dollars just matched her cloth. And as most of the samples ranged at prices even higher, with an im petuosity which characterized the move ments of the small woman who mildly rul ed the Fay family, she decided upon this. Seven yards no, eight it was well to have a piece left, nnd there should- be a bonnet to match. Eight it must be. he ser.t her order in haste and then waited the result in excitement which held in it more and more of repentance as the days went by. I.arly in the afternoon oithe third, an ex press wagon, a man nnd an enormous book appeared at her door. She ran to open it. She took the precious parcel which bore her name and placed carefully within the sanc tities of the parlor, while the man was fum bling for the bill. 'Thirty-four dollars, ma'am.' She had the exact amount in her hand. She had had the exact rmount within reach for the last two days. ' rite your name just there.' And Mrs. Fay wrote her name where the purple and black finger pointed grimly in characters a gootl deal' like the trembling ones with which she had written. 'Yes dear John,' two years before, in reply to a certain letter which uecd not be further mentioned here. 'And a dollar for tho express.' 'I thought it wrs fifty cents.' 'lloth ways, ma'am, you know, C. 0. D.' No, she did not know, not at that moment certainly j but she slipped a fifty-cent piece slyly back into her pocket and paid hi in the ilollar demanded. She did not open the parcel at once. She sat down to do a sum in mental arithmetic. Thirty-five dollars from $50 left $15; and there were the linings and trimmings, the dressmaker and Susan Janes to bo provided for. And Aunt Maria's cloak 1 She had entirely forgotten the cloak 1 There was no Impatience in the fingers that untied the strings as she prepared to inspect the dress. She had lost her enthusiasm over it al ready. Horror of horrors I Could that be her silk ? as a broad ray of sunlight struck upon it. It was by no means of the same shade as the dress. Could the dealers have made a mistake ? Hut no ; she compared a scrap of the sample which sho had chosen and a bit of the sample which she had withheld. It was the same. Was it possible that it could appear so different when seen in the piece. Hut there was no help for it now ; and with that reflection the last ray of pleasure in her new purchase vanished from her mind. Not even John's commendation could enliven her,' Why, you're pretty as a picture,1 said lie, the same night, wheu she had twisted the soft woolen stuft" about her fig ure and stood waiting under tho gaslight for his inspection. The silk she had prudently and thankfully banished from sight, Tho dull maroon hue had brightened to a rich crimson under the light. 'And did the money hold out ?' 'Y-es.' Hut the reply came faintly, and Mrs. Jupe running in the next morning, found her friend poring over the 'supple raeut' to a fashion psper, her smooth fore head drawn into two dreadful wrinkles. while she studied with despairing eyes this sheet of lines and angles, bicycles and in sano parallelograms, hopelessly coufused and inextricably entangled. 'They are patterns I' said Mrs. Fay, as though she would have added, 'Could you everbeliovo it?' 'I thought perhaps I might cut my dress myself.' flnndness, child I Did you ever do such a thing V 'No ; but people.do.' 'They dou't begin with a handsome suit, however. Do you want to spoil It to ruin the whole dress, beside wasting the material and the money you have speut for it ?' The last was an argument, and Mrs. Fay laid by her sheet of hieroglyphics with a sigh, and prepared to listen to reason, as Mrs. Jupe called it, by arranging to take the latter's dressmaker off her hands for one day, which Mrs. Jupe desired to Bpend out of town. Perhaps she could make up for this expense by cutting otT three of Susan Jane a days. Tho day and the dressmaker came. 'It i a good heavy piece of silk,' said the latter, testiug It between thumb nnd fore' finger. It was. It weighed liko load upon Mrs. Fay'e mind. Tho dressmaker laid it ar.alnst the woolen goods, opened her lips, then closed them again, prudently j but Mrs. Fy saw tho movement. No j It did not match. Had not Mrs. Jupe already remark ed It? And was not the maroon turned to purple by the proximity of tho silk, as any ono could see ? 'I should have thought that you would have bought American silk. They usually ofler it at Morton & Hrler's to make up with these heavy goods. It wears so much better and costs less, you know, by n good deal ; being so much wider, too, It cuts to better advantage.' 'It came from New York,' said poor.crest fallen Mrs. Fay. Hut there was no pride In her voice. Miss Mudge was measuring it off from her nose to the ends of her lingers. 'Eight yards I That will never do not If you take olf three-quarters for a bonnet and (ace the kirt. It will not trim it handsomely.' 'I thought It a large pattern,' faltered Mrs. Fay.

And Mrs. Fay sent to New York for threo additional yards of silk.

And Aunt Maria's cloak shrahk moro in its pro portions until it enlire'y passed out of ight. 'I shall do the rest myself,' she said to Susan Janes, as the latter laid by her work at the end of her third day. 'Do you think you cau ?' Thtro was dis appointment in Susan's faded eyes. 'That' blind stitch is hard to do nicely if ono is not used to"it.' PoorSuan ! Even ono more day would be something. It would earn the price of n New "York dinner. Work was not easily found in these days, and sho had depended upon at least a week here. 'I am sorry ; and I know it isn't easy to do.' The tea J were in Mrs. Fav'a eves. Was she not worn out with.it already ? 'But indeed, Susan. I must do it.' So Suan folded tho waist neatly and laid it with a lingering hand besido the skirt on Mrs. Fay sown bed, then donned her old, worn cloak and went away. When the dress was at last finished and put nit for John's inspection, the night be fore New Year, not even the warm bright bun could bring a trace of color to the pale, worn face of its wearer. But John did not notice it. 'Yes,' he said absently; 'it is very pretty lear, and I'm clad if you enjoy it but it has cot me more than I can well afford.' A shiver ran all the way down little Mrs. Fay's spine. She could not ask what ho meant. Was it Susan June ? Was it 'I suppose you told somebody that you got t in New York. At any rate, Morton & Hrier heard that my wife had been buying a fifty-dollar dress in New York, and Morton said that two could play at that game. So ho went down to Hartford and bought the steam heater he had been looking at for the store, and Hrier ordered another for his house.' It was that dressmaker I She must have told it.

And Mrs. Fay proceeded to further astonish her husband by bursting into tears. 'It is decorated, you know, and and looks like Kioto, Mrs. Jupo says.

The Hart ford order had been threatened, not carried out, and the steam heaters were bought of John Fay himself. Susan Jane was surprised by an invitation to a dinner on New Year's day. Of course she came, and she contrived to take a few needful stitches upon the new dress. That 'blind stitch had been indeed very trying to the unskilled fingers. And the dinner was a happy affair John'even proposing a toast at its conclusion : 'Our neighbors let'us do unto others as we would that others should unto us.' 'Dear, Wondering John!

IIUAL ESTATfi IX LEADVILLB. ( Tho October Scribncr contain., n notable paper on Leadvllle, written by Ernest Ing ersoll, nnd Illustrated by Mrs. Slary Hal lock Foote and Mr. J. II. Mllls.from which wcquoto this account ol an Interesting phase of mining life! All this excitement nnd influx of masses of men and the consequent Irregular squatlng upon unoccupied ground, began at once to produce discord and a fever of speculation In real estate. A certain cor poration claimed to own the whole town .site tinder a patent from the government, and tried to exact payment from every ten ant ; but the Illegality of this was asserted, and pending decision, everybody not only laughed at the company but proceeded to buy and sell original squatter-claims as though no better title was ever In existence a supposition, probably truo at that tlmo. Tcwn-lots roe from nothing to fabulous prices In a day, and fortunes were made and opportunities neglected accordingly. Next came a period of 'jumping' that Is, getling;forcihle or fraudulent possession of property. Men would call with a paper having a legal appeaiince and politely In form some man occupying the cabin they coveted that they had.bought the properly from the owner. 'You know, pard,' they would remark, af fably, 'that you just settled down here 'cau.e It was convenient like, and nobody said nothing about it j bul now the ownc.'thiuks ho orler have some good from his property, and we've bought it. We don't want to bo onpleasant, but it looks like you'd have to vamoose.' 'That's all right, no offense,' the shaggy, headed cot'ager would reply, quietly; 'but I reckon ef the owner or anybody else wants this ycre cabin they've got to take it, and they've got to hold over me, nnd get up Ight 'arly in the morula,' too.' aud he lays a loving hand on tho hilt of his six shooter, while the would-be jumpers anathe matize their way out of the door. Tbcrtwere, however, clear cases of len- ncy of land where no title was held, and ero tiro occupant, if unruly, was likelv to find his .cabin timbers faMiier'about ills pars ti the middle of the night, under tho vigor ous stroke of a band of citizens who propos ed to tee the real owper put in poisession tbeu aud there. Heedless fellows would in ist upon putting their trailing shanties or welling-bouses anywliee in the streets aid alleys bet apart for public use,' and then own would come nequadof police, with a span ot hones to the underpinning and raze tho obstruction in ten minutes. Hard oids wero a matter of couno in all these ittle public and private t ansactions in real estate, and every day or two a man was shot or beaten half to death ; but public opinion and the numerous witnesses quickly and oudly decided the right of tho case, and the coroner's jury was very likely to formu'ato the popi'lar verdict. Truth to Bay.the voxjiop uli in thete cases was usually about right. Odtside of a case of robbery by 'bunko theives,' if a man ge's shot in Leadville, it is fe to conclude that ho has got his des erts. Speculatioi in town-lots did not last very long, however, and now real esta is down to n pteity solid basis of value. Tho prob ability is that the future will see a decline in prices, as a whole, rather than an en hancing of the value ol real estate within the corporate limits, as no doubt Leadville has seen her highest tine-mark of popula tion l'UllE-IMIKI) ANiTcOMMUX FOWLS. The views of the l'ouitnj World on this subject are expressed as follows: A certain writer discredits the claim that pure-bred fowls aro better flesh and egg producers than common stock. While admitting that they do usually furnish more meat and egga than are furnished by the farmer's flock, he thinks this is due to superior care and feed- ng. He says that a person who pays two or three dollars for eggs, or a higher price for fowls, will be very apt to give them cx tra care I here is, no doubt, much truth In the saying that 'ihe breed is in the feed,' but it is only the statement of a half truth. Good feeding and care will compel any flock of Howls to do their best; but, after all, the charactertistlc differences ot the varieties remain, and cannot be changed by feeding. these dlllerences are, in many cases, consti tutional; that" is, by a long course of selec tion and local influences, certain traits have become permanently, '''xcd. The blood of certain varieties is very strong and will show itself for generations in each successive cross. The Game cock will transmit his game qualities, his proud carriage and close ness of feathering; the Leghorn his spright ly disposition and wonderful productiveness; the Asiatic indoleut habits and tendency to lay on flesh and fat ; all " these being marked features of the breeds men tioned. Now, feeding will not aflect these distinctive tendencies at least not to any extent. They wero formed by climate in fluences, operating for thousands of years, aided by along process of selection, some times natural nnd sometimes guided by man. In late years we have taken in hand the several families of domestic fowls, and by careful selection and breeding have ex aggerated, as it were, their peculiar traits, until they have become veiy strongly mark ed. To say, therefore, that the average dunghill fowl will lay as many eggs as a well-bred Leghorn, or will produce as much flesh as a Brahma will do in eight or nine months, it to affirm what a fair trial will show to be false.

Tho spot selected was about blf way up tho hill, di rectly hack of the camp of the Prauklln GiiBrds, and ou the brow of a steep descent. It was a tug, even with four horses, to move the heavy guns and cairsons up the hill; but this was done at length, under direction of Harry 0. Olmshead, the sixteen-years-old son ofCaptaln Olmshead. Oa the brow of I the declivity they halted, and took olT the horses, intending to turn,tho pieces around, but one was too near tho edge, and in an Instant the heavy gun, with cahsion and all attached, star'rd down tho hMl, Now it appears that young Olmstead had beard, on his way up, that the tents of tho Franklin Quards were filled with ladies and children, and here was the cannon charging straight for that campl Not an instant was to be lost. Tho young hero looked almost cer tain death in the face, and deliberately sprang on the tongue of the piece, endeav oring to turn the terrible charge of the gun away from the tents. Down, down It thun deled, witli the boy clinging to the pole, and doing his utmost to plunge it into the ground. Farter and faster it tore down the hill, but o one siuV of the tents. The boy had succeeded, but at n heavy cost, for, before the eyes ol'lhn breathless spectators, ho was thrown violently olf, while the gun brought up way down the hill, after demol ishing several fating places and booths. lender hands raised the lad and ho was carried to tho camp he had saved. It was found that no bones were broken, wonder ful to fay, but he was terribly jarred and bruised, and his frort teeth knocked out. When they tried to find nut his name he re fused to give isnyin, 'It might get into the papers, and I have u mother at home who would be worried.' All Ihe day of the celebration helay In a house near by, where Geo, Sherman went and praised his heroic deed.

AXC1EXT IHSruilY IX A UAVE. A remarkable cave has been discovered on the larm of David Samuels, 10 miles from La Cross, Minnesota, The cave is SO feet long, 13 feet wide, and about 8 feet high. Aoovo the quarry and, which has evidently drifted in and covered the floor to the depth of from threo to six feet, upon the walls, aro very rude carvings representing men, arms, animals and implements, and some appear o be hieroglyphics. One picture represents men with bows and arrows shooting animals, three buffaloes nnd one labbit. Another epresents three animals which if large must have been like the hippopotamus ; another appears to represent a mastodon ; on anoth er picture a moose is quite plainly delineat ed. There are eight representations that are canoes much carved, or hammocks which tney more resemble, une sketch ol a man is veiy plain ; the figure wears a kind of chaplet or crown and was probably chief of his tribe or clan. T icre are many fragments of pictures where tho rock had decomposed. The rock is a very coarse soft white sand stone. On one side of the cave is a space of about two feet high and three in lengtl made in the rock. Above are the fragments of pictures aud below aro lower fragments, showing that they were made when the rock was entire. Fiom the depth to which de compositions reached in this dry and dark cavern the inscriptions must be quite an cieut. If the carving mentioned represents the mastodon tho work must have been by mound builders. The accumulated sand need" to bo removed to get a full view, and possibly human remains may be found. The entrance to the cavo has evidently been cov ered by a land slide there being let. only a small hole where traps have been set for coons. The large number of these animals which were caught led to the belief that tho space Inhabited by them must be large and investigation led to the discovery of the cave. Over the entrance, since the land slide, a poplar 18 inches in diameter has grown, which shows conclusively that the cave has not been occupied by human beings lor more than a century.
