It was in tho year 1 ,atul the month

I had left London live days before, and
now I was miles and miles away from it,
in the very heart of the country, travel

business. It was an old-fashioned inn,
and the peoiilo were kind and obliging.

away in tho coach house, aud ordered
his man to drive 1110 over that evening.
wasn't an extra, mind vou. It was
sheer good will. So 1 thook hnnds all
lrouiiil, and remembered the chamber
maid and tho waiter with half a crown
each, and oil' I rode. It was getting
dark fast, and the road wound away
among tho hills in a very romantic sort
of a way; why, it mado you think of
ghosts, it you were a commercial trav
eler. Hero's tho place," says I to myself,
'where tho old gentleman of the road
would like to have met 1110 and my black
bag lifty years ago."
A multireel years ago,anyliow,l would
not have felt as safe as I do now.
Just then tho coach came to a sudden
"Hallo, cried lout ol tho window;
"what's the matter'!"
"It's moro than I can tell, sir," said
the man. "Hlack .lane has turned sulky;
she won't move one step."

his whip, I, with my head out of tho
window, watching him, when suddenly
the beast started oil like mail, and
drew in iv face and saw I had com
While tiie eoaon was at a standstill a

lhoy sat on tno seat opposite me, and
though it was an intrusion I had not tho

I looked out of tho window.
"Theie's :i man 011 horseback riding

"Oh, heavens 1" saitl she.
"Courage, llelty i" said tho young
fellow. "They shall never part us."
Then I knew it was a runaway match.
"I seo how it is," cried I, "keep up

I looked and saw many armed horse

young man. "My beloved, they come."
Ho drew his swoid.
Among other things he woto a swoid.

"Kasteil" cried tho young man.

A mm is a little stunned bv a thing
When I climbed out of tho window
and helped old Anthony up with the
coach, and coaxed IJlnck Jane to quiet
ness, I remembered that no 0110 else got
out of the vehicle, and I looked about
in vain for my pretty lovers. They
were not there, nor were there any signs
of the troop of horsemen I had seen
dashing up the hill. They could not
have passed us in tho narrow path by
"Vo ran a chance for our lives, mu

good driver, and lllack Jane is the kind
est thing I ever saw in harness. Thank
God for all His mercies. It's a strango
thing we did not go over the cliff."
"JJtit where did thev go 1" I asked.
"Vl.o?" said Anthony.
"The two lovers the pretty creatures
in fancy dress, The people who were
after them Where are they .'"
"Where " began Anthony. Then
he turned as pale as death. "All good
angels over us !" ho cried. "We have
ridden with Lady Hetty. It's tho 10th
of Aliy. I might have known better
than to try tho road to-night. Protect
us all. Ves, we've ridden with Lady
"Who is Lady Haty ?" said I. "As
pretty a creature as ever I saw, at all
events. Who was she.'"
Old Anthony stood looking at me and
shaking his head.
"It's an old story," ho said. "Hook
learned people tell it belter than I. Hut
a hundred years ago or more, on this
blessed night, my Lady Hetty Hope,
tho piettiest lady, ran oil from a coun

In cleaning up a little yesterday after

The boy then led tho dog out on tho

thero was an explosion which set tho do

COLUMBIA DKMOOHAT, VOL.XLVI, NO. II
A physician who lias spent considera
ble tlmo in tho examination of the cur
ious ruined cities of Yucatan, has sent
to Harper's Weekly a letter concerning
the finding of tho singular and rather
pieturesMiio ruins of a dwarf's house and
sanctuary in tho ancient city of Uxmal,
or rather Oxmal. This bile of stono
possessed interest by reason of the Ma
sonic emblems found therein, and which
tho physician describes minutely, to
gether with tho geneial plan and struct
ure of the ruined edifice. The building
stands on tho artilicial mound of earth
on a road that leads from a Yucatan
sugar plantation, and tho namo Oxmal,
signifying "three times rebuilt," is among

uu- iiisc:i iuiuiis cat veil on mo csceni
facade of the sanctuary. Tho temple is
described as rising in solitary grandeur
from tho top of this mound, and to a
height of fifteen metre and fifty cen
timetre'. It is shaped like a truncated
elliptical cone, tho upper side serving as
base to a building consisting ot two
rooms. In these it was found, 130 years
after tho place had been conquered by
tho Spaniards, tliat aborigines had cele
brated their ancient worship only a short
tinio before tho visit of Fat.ierCogolitdo.
There is also a part of tho building which
forms a sort of oblong truncated pyra
mid rising to the height of eight metres
aud lifty centimetres, and forming n
terrace twenty-seven metres long by six
metres wide, on which is bunt mo eaiiice
known in tho ancient legends as tho
"dwarf's house," and which can be seen
for a distance of many miles around.
This house consists of three rooms, tho
walls of which have been bored with
holes for some unknown reason, and
which were evidently never intended for
ordinary habitation. Tho doors open
upon small platform from which, in
olden times, the priests and astronomers
read, lrom the elevation tno. piatiorms
afforded, tho mysteries of the stars and
the skies The rooms are low as regards
their height and arc provided with thick
walls. The lloors were once painted red
and elevated eighty centimetres over tho
terrace, and tho ceilings form a triau
gular arch. This arch, which, according
to tho writer, is found in tho ancient
tombs of Chaldea and in the oldest of
Egyptian and Grecian monumcntf, was
evidently selected by choice of the arch
itects, ami not inrougn any ignorances ui
the builder?. S'.ones arc set in the ceil
ings after a regular but peculiar arrange
ment, and on them aro carved semi
Bolieres in deep intaglio, with figures de
signed to represent various plaucta and
stars. The middle chamber is destitute
of any decoration, aud is reached by
walking on tho terrace around 1110 ouiiii
ing, while entrance to tno omcr apart
ments is gained by a grand staircase of
ninety-six stein, very steep in construc
tion, "leading to tho terrace. Another
beautifully ornamented stairway led, at
one time from a couit yard adjoining
the priest's palace to this sanctuary,
while still another and smaller stairway
still leads to the roof of the sanctuary
ml to its middle chamber also. In the
centre of the court yard, which is sur
rounded by thick high walls, stood an
altar carved with a symbol of phallic
worship, introduced 111 the country at
tho beginning of tho Christian era by
Nahaiilt. Abovo tho door of the sanct
uary thero is a cornice running around
the" whole building, and on which is
carved skeletons and cross-bones in pro
fusion. Kings aro also cut 111 tho stone
and from them were onco hung curtains,
which concealed from tho temple wor

Deity is represented in all carvings by
a mastodon's head, and carved with in

of symbol which is also found in tho an
cient monuments. In other parts of tho
building aro found inscriptions contain

alphabet ,lhe .sonteno-'s being constructed

geologists and philologists to solve.
History ot tins Tomato.
good many years ago a man who
had recently arrived from the hermuda
Islands was sent to York county, l'a ,
for some oll'eiwe committed against the
laws of tho commonwealth. lie had
with him a few seeds which ho planted
in the rich soil of the jail yard. Heforo
tho plants which sprung lrom tho seed
reached maturity, ho was discharged.and
no ono knew tho name ornaturoof them.
Thov grew luxuriantly, bearing fruit of
a largo size and unusual appearance. As
this strango fruit ripened, its color chan
gcd from a green to a brilliant red, and
became an object of wonder and admira
lion to all the inmates of tho jail. Mrs.
Klinefelter, the lady keeper, cautioned
all prisoners against eating any of tho
fruit, as she was sure it was poisonous,
and besides planted the seeds, as slio
would endeavor to preserve specimens
of it for bun should ho return tn tune.
Jii"t when the fruit was fully matured
the liorinuda prisoner roisited tho jail
and asked to seo the plnnt. This rc-
ntiest granted, ho next called for pepper,
salt and vinegar, and to tho horror of
ihe good lady commenced to eat of the
supposed poisonous fruit with a relish
that astonished tho beholders. After
enioving tho strange repast, he informed
Mrs. K. that tho fruit or vegetable was
tho tomato, or lovo apple, and it would
bo lound wholesome mid nutritious. Tho
seeds of tho remaining tomatoes were
oarefu'ilv preserved and distributed
among the friends and neighbors of tho
lady, and this now popular esculent was
introduced into tho ancient and godly
borough of 101k. l'or many years
thereafter it was cultivated as an orna
incut rather than for table use, but by
