'This will be an uncommonly cold night," comment-d .Mm. Kh.abeth il liers, as she wr:iiji"d aiieh scarf more closely itbout her shoulders, and shiver ing even as she t-tood before her cherry grate lire. ''Kenny and IJessie, come away from the window, my dears, you will be quite dulled. Ami it is nine mo curtains were disuvn ami the gas ligh ted." "Hut the sky is so beautiful, mamma, remonstrated Master Leronzo, who had tho perception of an artUt. ''Where the sun went down it is clear yellow, like amber, and ovei head the blue is almost black,and full of big stars that shine just like the opal in your ring." "What a fanciful boy you are!" smiled his mother, who was exceedirgly fond and proud of the handsome lad,wlio was nearly as tall as herself. "15ut, oh, mamma!" exclaimed little 15essie,excito lly, "here i9 somebody lying on our steps. She must be sleeping, 1 think," concluded the pretty hulykin, with the assumption of grave perspicacity that is so amusing in a child. "No doubt the person is not sleep ing," said Mrs. Villiers, indifferently. "But she must not be allowed to remain there. Henny, ring for James." Hut her impulsive young son was be yond hearing her order, lie had already opened the heavy outer doors, and was btanding beside ilie still figure, ptostra td on the granite steps. The senseless woinan'woie a thin dress of frayed and faded silk and a large mantle of tlimsy material that was much soiled and torn. Tho hood had fallen back from a sad, winning face, and a great mass of fair, wavy hair, lay over her breathless bosom. As the lad bent over her with kindly solicitude, and gently pushed back her loose looks, he was startled by the sight of blood warm, red, human blood, slow ly rolling over a wan wasted cheek from a wound hidden beneath the malted hair. "She is hint. She is bleeding," he ejaculated. "She may bo dying. She must bo brought iu directly." "You are much toei impetuous, my lear boy," interposed his mother, from tho hall. To bring her in would bo as imprudent as Quixotic. Tho station is the proper place for such unfortunates." "15nt the night is so cold, and the Mil lion is so far away," u-ged tho lad, "She might dio before she could be taken there. And she could do no harm in tho kitchen, surely," he supplemented, as if grieved by the worldly objections of his parent. "Ami Uoou woiildn t do angry, mam ma! was the plea oi little nessie. "Aim then Uncle Dick is a elector, you know." "Hut Uncle Dick may not care to bo troubled by a patient jiiit now," said Mrs. illieis. "However, l suppose vou children must have your way." And so it happened that the sultcruig stranger was taken in, ami ur. Kichard Villiers was summoned from his room to attend her. The "rave, tldeilv nhvsician seemed agitated as he looked upon his unexpeo ted patient, and ins voice was curiously unsteady when ho finally spoke. "When she tell a sharp bit ot ic cut through the skin. Hut the gaah will soon heal. Her faint was caused by cold and hunger. She is absolutely starving, I should say," ho announced as ho gazeil compassionately upon tlio help less figure and incongruous attire. "Our children's protege has a most in teresting countenance'," Mis. Villiers re marked later. "And it seems miraculous that she has wandered here to iu," returned. Dr. Dick, musingly. "1 know tho poor creature soino years ago in the country. She was an honest girl but made an unfortunate marriage. Suppose you persuade hr to st iy with you for a tune, Elizabeth?" The lady marveled a little', but sho did not demur, for sho was charitably dis posed and had great eouMdcration for tho wishes of the brother of her dead husbami. Mowovei', she herself felt a benign in terest for the girl who was so mrely homeless and evidently friendless and who, us weeks and months passed, assum ed, with a gratitude that was almost pa thetie,a respected place iu that agreeable home. "I think you can do everything, Nel ly," said Master I.ieny.o ono elay, "Vou sew for mamma and help me with my lessons and have made cook absolutely lazy with your soups and puddings. "Have you any urotlur or Pi iiuiua, Nelly V suddenly asked liltlo Hessy. "1 think not. And I think somebody has been Dad to you, rseliy. 1 hat is wrong veiy wrong," shaking the gypsy head with a comical affection of superior wisdom. "Only wiekeil people could be cruel to any one so goon ami nice as you are1. Nelly Wynne's fair faeo flushed pain fully and her lovely eyes filled with tears. Alas; "She liud no father, site had no mother, bister uoui', and never u urotiie'r. nud ho whom hlio did have w is her bhaino nud her despair "Polito young misses do not nsk mi necessary questions." Mi s. Villiers gently admonished her liMpi'i-dl'ivo little logician. "Make your apologies, dear, to Nelly, mid then go with your brother. Tlio po mes havo come." For some moments Nelly stoo 1 by tho window looking at tho young people, who were eanteiing gleefully down tho avenue. Nelly was remarkably pretty, ami had a ccitmn simple elegance of manner and speech that 'as veiy pleasing. "She is always tlio saine,"Mrs. Villiers had once observed to her brother-in-law. "Sho is always calm and patient, thought ful for others, and wonderfully sweet tempered. Ono could never believe any wrong of Nelly. She is a treasure to us all." Hut latterly thero was a new ami sin gular gloom about tho girl, a dejection of aspect and a wistful apprehensive ex pression of tho largo eyes that puzzled her. "Of what may you be thinking,Nell)?" she iioried,in a jocose lone of the young woman, who still stood by tho window, gazing out absently into blankness. She sjartod, seemed irresolute for an instant, and then went slowly over to her benefactress. "I was thinking," she answered with a tremulous accent, "of your goodness lo ine ; how kind all of you havo been to me and how you havo all trusted me." Sho hesitated and then continued, mournfully : "And that the tune has come when 1 must tell you something dreadful for you to hear and humiliating for me to speak." "Do not distress yourself unneces sarily, Nelly," C'iuneletl Mrs. Villiers, kindly. "No ibui'it oil have innde mis takes and know i s riows, as wo all must do. rhateer you think light and best to tell me, dear, say i.i o'ir own time and way." "I am as grat- ful for your considera tion as I am sure of your sn:p d by," said Nelly, moro cheerfully. "Vou al ready know that my inariiago was a mis take, and that ho whom I wedded was not an honorable man," she proceeded, shuddering and reluctant. "Hut you havoneitherlieardiiorsurmised the worst. I was an orphan, without any kindred whatever, when I nut Kuftis Wynne, whom I did not believes wicked, although I knew he had been wild, and that his reputation was not enviable'. I knew, toei, that he was faulty ; that he could be unreasonably jealous; that ho was not truthful, and that ho had a fierce temper. Hut I fancied that my wifely influence and his affection for mo would remedy these defects. Ah ! but my hopes were delusions; my reasoning was as fallacious as fond. Not a year after my marriage 1 had become the most pitiful of crea tures an ui luvjd, neglected and abused wife. He no longer even affected the suppositious graces that had won me, and ho jeered at my misery anil horror when I beheld his character in its evil and hideous rcali'y." Tho unhappy Nelly paused and hid her face that was hot with shame. "Hut iu all this,dear, you wcre.and aro blameless," averred her companion con solingly. "There aro many who wouhl not be lievo so," protested tho girl sorrowfully. "There aro not a few who contend that a wife must always be the cause or the accessory of her husband's wrong doi.ig. There are those who would not hold blameless the most innocent of all wom en if she wero the wife of one whose vo cation is theft and such is the calling of the man who still pursues and claims me, comnfnnds and threatens me. Elizabeth llhers was shocked and troubled. As sympathetic and magnani mous, and fond of the girl as she was sho would scarcely have liked so uiide- irablo an individual as Kufus Wynne to cross her threshold, oven in peaceful pur suit of his wife; and ho wasoueto bring lisquiet instead ol peace, and gloom in stead of gavctv. You are', indeed, unfortunate, she responded, soberly. "Hut you have some serious reason lor tolling me inese tilings have you not?" "Unhappily I have," assented Nelly, "a decidedly serious reason. You do not apprehend, perhapsthat he so persistent lollows and asserts his rights oniv mat ho may force me to become his accom plices but 1 desire to avoid all useless fetalis. Ami sho had, indeed, omitted lisereetly all irrelevant incidents of her vicissitudes, that could only have shock- 1 her patient and wondering listener. "Soino days ago ho discovered my where- iliouts, and has since compelled me to see him. llo lias learned that you have many valuables in the house, and he has planned" for a moment she bowed her head in her hands and sobbed bitterly he lias planned a burglary to bo execu ted to-night, while Dr. Villiers is away. If I fail to make their entrance. the in gress ot himseit and companions easy anil secure, I am to die, Need I tell you moroT oh! Mrs, Villiers, say that I need not." Her agitation was intcnsedier innocent shame pitiful. ".o, my ilcareht girl, you nave told me sufheient. J ray compose yourseit.

Tiio jack rabbit is an inhabitant of Texas and of soino other Western States, lie is often called the "mule eared rab bit," and, by tlio cowboy, is familiarly spoken of as the "nniley." He is not a rabbit at all. A rabbit is :m unobstiiic tive little aniiutl who U found by school boy iu a bnlo iu the ground at the end of a long Hack in the snow. The so-called jack-iabbit is quite a different kind of soup-meat. Ho is Mrtitieal with the Hiitish hare, except ih.it ho is l.t g r, his color brighter and his eais inueh'l'inger. His avereiupois is about si.t. en pon ids, and his ears mea-urc, from t i , t tip, about sixteen inches. He ii s under cover of u lui'io'i of prairie gr.is", li it is very .seldom luiind at bom", his cilice hours between sunset and sunns.'. Ik is lo bo found, during tin- il iy on the open praliie, where he ft !s em' the ten der shoots of the mosquito or sigo-grass. He is not a ferocious animal, as' a stran ger might bo led to suppose from an ex amination of what purports lo bo his pic Hire, under the alias of "Tho Texan Hare," in Governor Huberts' book. Tho jack-rabbit lias several enemies, among them the cow-boy, who spots him with his rille ; tho coyote and the dog, that try to run him down, and tlio Governor of Texas, above alluded to, who libels him in his book. Ho has two ways of protecting himself against his enemies. One way is to squat, when he suspects dangcr.and fold his ears along his sides. By eloing this lie often escapes observa tion, as only his back is exposed, the color of which hatmonizes with the brown of the withered grass. The other plan, that lie uses when discovered and pursued, is to create remoteness between himself and pursuer. In giving his whole attention to this matter, -when necessary, he is a stupendous succes and earnest to a fault. When elislurbo 1 he unlimbcrs his long legs, unfurls his long ears, nnei goes off with a bound. He generally stops after running about a hundred varels and looks back to see if his pursuer is enjoying the chase as much as he thought lie would, and then he leaves for parts unknown. There aro many fast things, from an ice boat to a note maturing iu the bank, bul nothing to equal the jack-rabbit. An unfounded rumor gets around pretty lively, but could not keep up with" him for two blocks. When an ordinary cur dog tries to expedite a jack-rabbit gait he makes! a humiliating failure of it. He only gives tho rabbit gentle exer cise. The rabbit merely throws up his ears, and, under easy sail, skims leisurely along, tacking occasionally to give tlio funeral procession timo to catch up. But if you wish to see velocity, urgent speed, and precipitated haste, you havo only to turn loosu a greyhound iu tlio wake of a jack.rabb'ft. Pursued by a givyhouiid In will "let himself but" in a manner that would astonish a pre pVid half rate message. If ho be a rab bit that has never 'had any (xpeiienco witli a greyhound before, "he will start I'l'fntan easy puup, but as he turns to wu k ui i ltd veiy at what he supposes to uo an ordinary yellow dog, ho realizes that there is a force iu nature hitherto unknown to him, and his look of aston ishment, alarm and disgust as lie furls his ears and promptly declines tlio nom ination, is amusing. Under such eirctim stances no "oes too last lor the eve to follow his movements and presents tho optical illusion of a streak of jack-rabbit i nine ami a nan long. tcmh ttiin.

VOL, XVI NO. 7 COLUMIJIA OBMOOIIAT, VOL.UM, NO, 60 Coal In the United Slates Tho census of 18S0 shows that tho de cade past is less remarkable for tho in crease of tlio country in population, largo as that has be en, than for the growth of our material development. In mining, manufacturing, the production of cereals nud cotton, in the oxtentions of our iail road system and tho increased cultivation of tho soil, our progress during the last ten years.has been something marvelous. There is no belter illustration of this than the single ease of our coal production, as shown in tho recent bulletins issued by the Census Ollice. Tho returns are yet incomplete, cover ing only tlio region oast of the 100th meridian. In this region bituminous coal is obtained in eighteen States and niithraeito in two. the total product of bath for 18S0 is seventy ono million tons for 1870, which is an increase of percent. Of thu anthracite coal 0,170 tons were produced in Uhodo Island and the remainder, 18,010,819 tons, were mined in that portion of Pennsylvania east of tho .Susquehanna Hiver. Tlio production for 1870 was 15,00 1,'75 tons, which makes the increase in 1831 per cent. The bituminous product shows the much larger increase of 1 17 percent., or from 17,100,000 tons in 1870 to l:,.120,000 tons in 1880. Tho grand total production for 1880 of seveiify-ono million tons, is less than one-half the production of the Fnglish collieries for the samo period, anil is about equal to the English production in 18."). Tho output in England for 1880 was l(;i,.:Si;,000 of our shoit tons, which was tons for eacli inhabitant, while this country produced 1.1 tons per capita. An important difTerenoj is however, that while our coal supply is yet scarcely touched, the English pro duction lias probably leached its great est development, and more or less appre hension is already felt there that their coal beds aro approaching exhaustion. At the rato of increase in tho eoal pro duct of this country in the last eleeado we promise soon to ovei take that of England. The ratio of increase in the. last ten years was four times that of tho increase in population. Tho very gen eral substitution of coal far wood iu this period will account for a largo portion of the increase, but the great growth of our manufacturing industries is tlio chief factor in the greatly increased demand for coal. The single State of Pennsylvania not only produces all but an unimportant li action ot the anthracite coal, but threo times as much bituminous coal as any other single State. Its product for 1830 was eighteen million tons, or more than was produced in tho whole United States in 1870. Tho coal product of Peniis lvania, both bituminous and an thracite, in 1880 is just seven-ninths of the entire stock of eoal produced in the United States during that year. Tlio second coal State is Illinois, and after it Ohio and Maryland in order. West Virginia, Indiana and Iowa each produc ed between one and two million tons, and some half dozen other States make a respectable showing. Tho immense coal deposits in West Virginia, Ken tucky, Tennessee, Alabama and through out the West, remain almost untouched a i ieli rcsei voir of infinite power and unlimited wealth fur future generations.

Some of tho most important discover ies havo been made accidentally; and it as happened to more than one inventor, ho had long been searching alter some new combination or material lor carry ing out a pet idea, to hit upon tho right thing at last by mere chance. A lucky instance of this kind was tlio discovery of the principle of tho telescope. -Neatly three hundred years ago, there ,'as living in the town ot Aliililelburg. on the island of Walcheren, in the Neth erlands, a poor opticau named Hans .ippersheini. One dav, in tlio year 1008, he was working iu 1 its shop, his children hoiping him in various small ways, or romping about and amusing themselves with tlio tools and objects lying ou his work-bench, when suddenly ins little gin exclaimed: "Oh Papa! See how near tho steeple comes: Halt startled by tins announce iiKiit, tho honest Hans looked up from his work, em ions to know tho child's iinazemoiit. I iirning toward her, he saw that sho was lookintr tin onh two eases one held close to her eye', and tho other at aim's length; and, calling his daughter to his side, ho u sliced that the eye lens was plauocoucl ive, (or flat on one side and bulging on tho other.) Th'Mi, taking the two glasses, ho repeat- 1 h.s dauorhter s experiment, and soon liscovered that she had chanced to hold the lenses apart at their exact focus, and this bad produced the wonderful effect she had observed. His quick wit and skilled invention saw in this accident a wonderful eli eoverv. He immediate ly set about nuking use of his knowledge of lenses, and ere long ho had fashioned i tubj ol pasteboard, in which beset tho glasses firmly at their exact focus. This rough tube was the germ of that great instrum.iit tlio telescope, to which modern science owes so much. And it wis on October '.'I'nel, 1008, that I.ip persheim sent to bis goverumet three tel eseopes made by binisell, calling thoni "instruments iv means ot which to seo at a dhtinco." .oi long aiterwaid another man, Incob Adrians., or M tins, of Alkmaar, a town about twjiifv miles from Am sterdam, claimed to have discovered tho principle nf the telescope two years ear Her than nans i.ipii.'rslieim; and it is generally acknowledged that lo one of these two men belongs the honor ot in venting mo instrument nut it seems ertain that Hans hipperslieim had never known nor heard of the discovery undo by Adrians, and so, if Adrians had not lived wo still should owe to Hans Lippersheiin's quick wit and his little daughters luokv Middling, one the most valuable and wonderful human inventions.
