Her llaxhiiig blown eyes were now dim

"Voit sing 'Home, sweet Home,' and

with a slight repioiiehfiilno-i), "you

lie paused and showered the white
blo-ssoms over her head, looking into
her shy, saddened eyes.
"I i nay not say i(," he added. "Your
father thinks he is a wise man, and
has sealed my lips. Dear as is this
simple country place, I know that life
lias belter work than can be done here.

her father, as he watched the sad face
moving about uneasily. He changed
his opinion when shu knelt on the stool,

"I thought you hated school."

"And Amy," said tho old man, (ear
fully, "when you become a lady per
haps you will despise the awkward,
old blundering farmer. I have heaid
of such things."
"Oh, pa, Aunt Hastings- is a true
lady, and she honors you as your
daughter always must," " said Amy,
winding her arms around (he neck of
her doling father.
"Well, child, write to your aunt (o

She will bo a good model for you.
Amy, child, if it were necessary I
would make you n lady that you
might win Grant's love, even ifit'lod
you to despise me. Will Grant liur
chard ever love you belter than that,
It was a question that stirred the
depths of Amy Lmlwiek's loving heart,
and kept lnM' taithful to her filial duty.
Five years later two gentlemen of
polished 'iinuiiers and easy address sat
talking in a Now York hot"!. Some
controverted point had held ihem in
earnest debate for a long time ; but at
length the elder of thu two arose, say
ing: "Grant lliuvhard, I liko your do

An hour later they were whizzing
rapidly toward thu country, when their
attention win arrested at a station by
the entrance of ,t lady. Grant Hur
chard stalled. Soinetliing reminded
him of Amy Ludwiek. There were
brown oyos and glossy curls, worn in
the old, childish fashion, but now they
certainly were old maidish mid unbe
coming. Her face was pretty still,
but it lacked something to make it in
teresling, nnd Grant I5urchard could
not but acknowledge to himself she
was overdressed and unrefined in ap
pearance, lie instinctively shrank
from acknowledging to his friend that
this woman looked liko the one he had
loved. And (hough his eyu caught
the name of "A. Ludwiek"" on her
travelling bag, bo shrank from renew
ing the iicipiiiintnti.ee, as ho might
have done by a word. Ho was con
(ras(ing (his uninteresting woman with
the simple girl in sweet brier glen,
when an old man entered and address
ed her as ".Miss Ludwiek."

Kalph Emery smiled, but it was no
smiling matter to Grant lSurchard,
this dethronement of the beautiful idol
he had carried all these years.
"Getting ready, I s'pose V queried
"Heady for what?" asked Miss
Ludwiek, with a blush and silly laugh.
"You've concluded not to wait for
the chap that went away a few years
ago, I hear, and that young man com
ing to your house every week don't
mean anything, 1 s'pose," said the old
man. with an intelligent smile.
"1 don't see it," was the quick reply,
as she tossed her head and simpered.
Grant Bui-chard groaned.
"Success to tho young man who
comes every week !" said llalph Kmery,
fervently, "and you might as well say
'Amen,' Grant, i'or 1 think that last
bit of slang has cmed you."

Verily Grant Burohard was in an
unenviable frame of mind. He was
liko one who had reveled in a delicious
dream of beauty, and awakes to a
stern and wretched reality. He was
thinking it al' over, as he lounged
with his friend upon the porch of tho
country hotel, where they stopped for
the night, when his reverie was put to
llight by the fragrance of sweet brier
a perfume that always camo lo him
laden with sweetest memories.
The parlor was in shadow, but they
heard the lloating sound of woman's
garments, and a sweet, low voice,
ohauing intelligently with an elderly
gentleman. The conversation was of
sullicient length to prove that this lady
with the stairy blossoms of sweet brier
twined in her hair was a woman of
oiiginal thought and rare cultivation.
Tlio old man asked for music, and tho
ladv swept the piano kuvs with skill
ful Unguis, and tilled tho room with a
rare, sweet melody. As tho last notes
lied away, and the soft garments
lloated out, Grant Burcliard exclaimed:
".uy Amy should have had a voice
lialph Emery thought of the harsh
and discordant tones in ihu rail car,
and with a smile that made bis cjiu
puiiiou wince, quoted thu slang phiase :
"1 don t sou it.
The next day, Grant Burcliard and
his friend stood at the into of tho
Ludwiek homestead. It was a lino
old place, and tlio garden was a pretty
sight with its laro and beautiful (low
ers arrangi'd with exquisite taste.
Grant had thought of this visit for
years, when ho should come alone to
claim Amv, but now ho was glad to
bring his friend, that no mention
might bo uiudu of claims. A ladv
stood in thu garden path. Shu turned,
and tlioro were the dark curls, brown
uyes, ami ungraceful manner of thu
travelling companion of the previous
day. Grant Burcliard stepped ior
ward. "Good morning, Miss Ludwiek."
It was sadly cold and changed from
the fervent "Amy" he had always
called her in his thoughts.
"Good morning, sirs ' responded the
harsh voice, while a scared look
camo into thu brown uves as she re
garded tho distinguished looking
strangers, a iiiinuto more and sli
exclaimed enthusiastically :
"W hy, tvraut nurcliard, if it am t
you, How glad I am !"
And shu gave him a hearty hand

A low minute, elapsed, and tho

The Muriler of Morgan,
TIIPIILOW Wlttll's DYINll HLVLLVriON OP
tiik coNi nssioN or tiii: AiiDicroiis.
A long nnd detailed statement of the
circtinnlnncefi surrounding tlio abduc
tion and murdrr of William Morgan in
Noi thorn New York in 18i7 was made
by Tlmrlow Weed about two months
before his death and sworn (o In-fore a
Notary, the nllidavit bearing date ol
September '2 18S2. In it Mr. Weed
tells of the excitement growing out of
Morgan's disappearance and his own
part in the efforts to get at the truth.
Ho tells, what has been told before, of
the discovery of it body on tho shore of
iLake Onlaiio, which was yositively
ideutilied, by the testimony' of .Mrs.
Morgan and others, as that of William
Morgan, and how it was subsequently
claimed that tho body was that of one
Monroe, whoso wife identitied thu
clothing as (hat worn by her husband,
(hough the personal description she
gave in no way accorded wilh (hat of
the body that was found.
"On the evening of the dav that the
body interred at Batavia wns declared
by a third inquest to be that of Timo
thy Monroe, I went into the billiard
room of the Eagle Hotel to see a friend
from Clarkson. When leaving the
room Ebene.'.-r Grillin, Esq., a prom

Masons, who was playing billiaids.
turned (o me, cue in hand, saving:
'Well, Weed, what will you do "for a
Morgon now?' To which I replied,
'That is a good enough Morgan lor us
till you briug back the ono you canied
off.' On thu following morning the
JMtili Advertiser, a Masonic orgon,
contained a paragraph charging "mo
with having boastingly said" tlint the
body in question 'was a good enough
Morgan until after the election.' That
perversion went tho rounds of thu
Masonic and Democratic press, awaken
ing much popular indignation and sub
jecting me to denunciations in speeches
and lesolutions at political meetings
and conventions. Explanations we're
disregarded ; tho maxim that 'False
hood will travel miles while Truth is
drawing on its boots' was then veri
lied." Mr. Weed then goes on to relate tho
difficulty encountered in obtaining wit
nesses, and how, when the witnesses
wore secured, thoy testilied the oppo
site of what was known to bo the
truth. In 1831, after AVeed's removal
to Albany, a libel suit was begun
against him by General Gould, of
Itochester, whom ho had charged with
giving money he received from the
lioyal Arch Grand Chapter to enable
Barrage Smith and John Whitney to
escape from justice. Gerrit L. Dox,
treasurer of the Grand Chapter, and
John Whitney, ono of the reeipienti of
the money, were in court to establish
tho truth of the libel, but a narrow
ruling by tho Court excluded the tcMi
mony and ended the trial abruptly.
That evening Weed entertained some
of tho witnesses he had summoned at
his own house. Juwett was prepared
to testify that he furnished a carriage
for those who wete conveying Morgan
secretly from Canantlaigua to Niagara
John Whitney was oiiu of the party.
.Major Barton would have testilied that
he furnished the carriage which con
veyed tho party from Lewiston to Foil
Niagara, John Whitney being one of
that party. Whitney would have
sworn that Gould supplied money to
enable him to "esuanc from -iustice."
What followed is the important part of
this remarkable posthumous statement :
"In the course of the evening, the
Morgan affair being tlio principal' topic
of conversation, Colonel Jowett turned
to Whitney with emphasis and said :
lohn, what if you mako a clean breast
of it.' Whitney looketl innuiriiiidv at
Barton, who added, 'Go ahead. ' Whit
ney then related in detail the history of
Morgan's abduction and fate. Tlio
idea of suppressing .Morgan's intended
exposure o( (he secrets ot Masonry
was ln-st suggested by a man bv tlio
name of Johns. It was discussed in
lodges at Batavia, Lo Hoy and Koohes-
ter. .minis suggested that -Morgan
phoiild bo separated from Miller and
placed on a farm in Canada West.
I-or this purpose he was taken to Nia
gara and placed in the magazine of the
lort until arrangements lor settling hint

Canadian -Masons disappointed tlu in.

"Immediately after that toast, which

and into a carriage furnished by Major
Barton. They were ibiven to Fort

informed Morgan that thu arrange

completed and that his family would

information cheerfully and walked with

unpardonably neglected. That letter
reached Chicago ono week after Whit

In all the early stages of tho Morgan
affair he believed lie was doing Ids

About the beginning of the thir
teenth century much objection was
raised against its introduction into
London on thu plea that its smoke was
an intolerable, nuisance. This opposi
tion was continued for nearly 200
years in some quarters, but was at last
obliged to give way before tho grow
ing scarcity of timber. Toward the
beginning of the fourteenth century
many shallow collieries were opened
out in the neighborhood of Newcastlo-on-Tyne,
but little is known nbout tho
progress of our subject during the
courso of the fifteenth century. There
is enough to show however, that the
demand for coal went on increasing.
In a petition presented to the Council
by tho Company of Brewers in l.r78
wo find that corporation offering to uso
wood only in the neighborhood of
Westminster Palace, as thev under
stand that the Queen iindeth "hersealfo
gieatley grevd and anoyed with tho
tastes and smoke of tho sea cooles."
nother author writing in 1G21 savs
that "within thirty years iast the nice
dames of London would not como into
any house or room when sea-coals wero
burned, nor willingly eat of tho meat
that was either sod or roasted with sea-
coal lire.'' Soon after the commence
ment of the seventeenth century tlio
use of coal for domestic purposes, as
well as for washing, brewing, dyeing,
elc , was general and complete. Tho
mines vuro still shallow, and they
wero drained bv means of horizontal
tunnels called adits, water gates, etc.
Already attempts had been mado to
sink some of them under water level
and to raise the water by machinery.
In tho year 11S0-7 the monks of
Finehdale l'tiory expended a sum of
money at one ot their collieries on tho
Wear "on the new ordinance of tho
pump and on the purchase of horses
to work it. Underground fires and
noxious gases began also to ap
pear about this time. The miners'
tools consisted of a pick, a ham
mer, a wedge, and a wooden shovel.
Tho coal was raised to tho surface in
some cases by means of a windlass, in
otheis, as in tho mines of the East of
Scotland, it was carried up stairs on the
backs of women, called coal-bearers.
In tho year 1015 the ileet of vessels
called the coal fleet, which carried tlio
produce of the Northern collieries
one half to London, tho remainder to
other destinations numbered -100 sail.
Many foreign vessels also, especially
French, carried away cargoes of coa'l
to their respective coiudries. Twenty
years later the coal tleet had increased
to 000 or 700 sail, and was already re
garded as "a great nursery, of seamen."
Artemus and His Babes.
Arteinus Ward started in California
with an announcement that ho would
lecture on "The Babes in the Wood."
IK-said ho preferred this title to that
of "My Seven Grandmothers." Nobody
knows why. for there was, of course, to
be as little in the lectuies about babes,
i-i or out of tho wood, as about seven
or any other number of grandmothers.
"Tho Babes in tho Wood'' was never
wriUon down ; a few sentences only have
survived of a performance which was
destined to revolutionize the comic lect
uring ol the age. Tho "Babes" seem
only to have been alluded to twice
that at the begiiiiiing.wheii the lecturer
gravely announced "The Babes' as his
subject, and then, after a rambling
s(ringoi ii-reley.-in(wi(ticisms, which last
ed from an hour to an hour audahalf.ho
concluded with: "I now nuncio my sub-
jeei, -ine mines in the Wood. Then
taking oiii his watch, his coiintenanco
would suddenly change, surprise follow
ed by great perplexity. At last recover
ing his former composure, nud facing
tho difficulty as best as ho could, ho
combined: "But 1 find 1 have exceed
ed my time, and will therefore morelv
remark that so far as I know, they wero
very good babes, they were as good as
ordinnry babes." Then, almost break
ing down, and much more nervously.
"I really have not time to go into the'ir
history : you will find it all in the story
books." Then, getting quUo dreamy.
"They died in tin- woods, listening "(o
(he woodpecker tapping the hollow
beech-tree." With some suppressed
emotion. "It was a sail fate for them,
and 1 pilv them ; so do you. Good
night?" Tlio sucetss of 'this lecture,
throughout California was instaneoiis
and decisive. The reporters complain
ed that they could not write for laugh
ing, ami split their pencils desperately
in attempts to take down the jokes.
