AUgURC, S2 ly Buown's Iron Bhteus is one nf the very few tonic medicines that aic not com posed mostly of alcohol or whiskey, thus becoming a fruitful tiource of intemper ance by promoting a desire for rum. Brown's Iron Bitters is guaranteed to be a non intoxicating .stimulant, and it will, in nearlj ever)' case, take the place of all liquor, and at the same time abso lutely kill the desire fur whiskey and other intoxi cating beverages.

All tins air was fragrant with sweet brier, untl (lm pile 1i1o-oiiisi slionu like stars in (lie dark yreen bower made by i(s lianginj. foliage. Standing in tlio bowel', her dink curls briislietl by the trailing brandies ami her hands lint lesdy pltickiiiir the starry bUmoms was Amy liiidwiuk, a pretty country In". Her llaxhiiig blown eyes were now dim with unshed tears, and Grant Hur uliaid, at a ditiiiice, stuilied the rural picture and smiled. It was manlike to smile, when lie knoiv from Iter listless dreamy air she was thinking of thu absent, and lie could have testilled on oa(h (hat absent one was lie. It was manlike (o ntnilo when he, noled (lie unwonted quiver of laughing, ruby lips, nnd (lie unusual dowyiiess of sparkling, dancing eyes, and was con tidenl as of his etiileliee (hat thoughts of him had robbed the lips of their 'steadiness anil the eyes ot their Hash tug brilliancy ; nnd lie was right. You would have known it by the unspoken gludne-sS (hat houo out of lliu dark, saucy face as Grant liurchard camu in sight, softlv humming "Home, Sweet Home." " J"I don't believe :i word of it,'' she n..iil, saucily, as he enti'i-ed the bower and tied the sweet brier in knots about her head and shoulders. "Don't believe what, you little athe ist '?" he asked playfully. "Don't be lieve that you atu my prisoner, ami that I may be a cruel master, demand ing penance for all the sins you ever committed ?" "I don't believe you meant that song," she answered, a little sadly. "Voit sing 'Home, sweet Home,' and act as if you wore delighted to get out in the broad world." "Amy" (and (ho manly (ones spoke with a slight repioiiehfiilno-i), "you know I love my home, and " 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. My energies are cramped and my pow ers are sadly limited. The opportuni ty offered me for travel and improve ment is a raro one, and 1 may not cist it away. It is a realixation of a golden dream," and when I return I will real ize another, and confound vour father's fears 1" He held her pinioned with the eg lantine fetters, but she tore them hur riedly away, saying : "When von return von may despise a simple girl like me, and my father wishes (o snare me lutiire pain in tor- bidding all further intimacy until we know ourselves as years of separation will prove us. That separation ho in-di-ts must be entire. Vo cannot even write, tirant. "But we cm think, and love, and wait, was the Iiopetul answer, "l tin der comes your cousin Alice. 1 would say, plague take her ! only she looks woiidroiisly like vou. Good-bye, Amy." And the strong man kissed her (reinblino- lips, anil was gone. Poor Amv ! She was only 10, and not much of a philosopher. So thought her father, as he watched the sad face moving about uneasily. He changed his opinion when shu knelt on the stool, at his side aud inquired : "rn, can I go away to school ! "Vou go to school !" ho exclaimed. "I thought you hated school." "Xo," hhi) answered, gravely. "I never hated it. and my teacher" wiid I would make a good siudeul if I cared less for fun. I am a real ignorauiii, pa." 'Did Grant tell you so, Amy !" "Xo, papa," answered the blushing girl. "He sometimes corrected my grammar, but he thinks I know mnro than I do. Kven now he talks of sub jects I cannot understand. lie is going out to learn and improve con (imially, and if I settle down to my old fun and indolence ho will indeed despise me when ho returns. I love Grant, and I want to make myself woithy of him. lit) , will btcomo tie customed to the society of polished women, and I will svei utterly devoid of polish. You are wealthy," p.i, but I would piol'er education (o money." "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 liiul you a good school " in (he city. 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, think you?" It was a question that stirred the depths of Amy Lmlwiek's loving heart, and kept lnM' taithful to her filial duty. s. v 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 votion to thu memory of this country girl. It shows how trim a friend you can bo. Itul, in this case, I believe you are preparing for yourself a cruel disappointment '' Grant liurchard was only half lis tening. After live years spent in a foreign land hn was still dreaming of the young girl in thu eglentiiiu bower, and replied as bef ji-o : "If I Ibid Amy Ludwiek as when I left her I will make her my bride," "You cannot liiul her as you loft her," said his friend earnestly. ' "Hero is lialph IC'iiery's watch n 'uiiist Grant li'iroliard's hit th'U she is already Wedded to siiuu neighboring fun net", I'm unit you win inn to recognize your meal Amy in tho dumpy nnd li lilerato housewife. If she Is not mar rleil you will probably wish she had ; for, during these llvo years you have been adding to your store of knowl edge, nnd unconsciously gaining a lastu for higher pursuits ami coinpan ionship. If the girl has not gaintd, you will find she has lost her youth, her simplicity and all that naive fresh ni'FS you so much admire. Vou shako your head doubling!)', eh? 'Kpliraim is joined to his idols s let him alone.' Seeing is believing, however. With such a heart as yours, I pity you when your idol lies before you fallen nud shattered." And llalph Kmury looked with real concern into the thoughtful face of his friend. 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." Hal)h K'nery now started and look ed into his friend's face. "Ah ! I remember the name," ho ex claimed. "Is that the divinity of your dreams V "I fear it is," was tio deprecating answer. "Where have you been V asked the fanner. "Keen down to the city to do eomo trading," was the answer. Her voice was coarse and harsh, and 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 the farmer. "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." W Sr W 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 liko that." 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 shake, ami poured forth a torrent of qiiusdons as she led him into the house, uiul went to call the family. I ho guntlemau gl.inceu about thu parlor. Everything win neat and beautiful, ami the careful disposition oi noons nun nirnituro uetokened a cultivated taste. The piano was open mid two pair of critical eyes noted Willi surprise the illllieult piece of music standing on tho rack Thu faint perfume of sweet brier stealing in thu open window filled the room with a delightful aroma, and Grain Burcliard smiled in spito of him self this ciny palace was so liko his imaginary homo lor his ideal Amv. A low minute, elapsed, and tho hinilu was gone. His dream died when (ho curly-haired maiden entered hu room, bringing old Mr. Ludwiek, who grasped his hum) with a cordial tenderness, and greeted him in hearty iuiii-s in welcome. " ell, Grant, do vou think Amv looks natural C inquired Mr. Ludwiek", wiii'ii tins ceremony was over. "Miss Ludwiek, your daughter, re lulus some of her old looks," answered Grant, confusedly. "And yet I con 8, 1882. fess she does seem ehangtd," "For the better. Grant -eh ?" said the old man, gleefully. "She ha changed for the better. Hasn't she, Grant?" "Certainly," answered Grant, blush ing fearfully, as ho put up n mental petition to be forgiven for lying. 'And she loves the old man just as well," continued Mr. Ludwiek joyfully. "How lucky that you did not come before I Shu only reached home this inorcing by the early train. What mado her run away so soon, Grant?" "Your daughter is here," answered the young man, pointing to the blush ing face encircled by the dark curls. "You don't mean to say, Grant, you thought that was Amy?"

I warrant she is in the bower. Let's surprise her." Grant Burcliard gave a great sigh of relief, and the whole party went into tlio garden. There was tlio eglan tine bower, carefully kept ; ,'ind even now a lair woman with a while dress of tlio pttiost white was on a step-lad- iicr pruning (ho overhanging branches, singing, meanwhile, in tho sweetest strains, "Ever of Thee, I'm Fondly Dreaming. llalph Emory listened and exclaim ed: "It is tho voice wo heard last night." Grant Burcliard stepped hastily for ward. All unconscious Amy contin ued her pruning, only stopping when the gardener spoku : "Miss Amy, vou had better let mo do that." "No, no, John," she answered, laugh ing, "tt frightens mo to seo you cut iway these beautiful branches. It gi loves me to sever a single twig, and you moil off great branches without a pang ot remorse. ell, -Hiss Amy, it is as I say. Your sweet ladyship is stingy of noth ing but sweet b'rier." "Stingy, eh?" and Amy laughed tneirilv. "No, John ; not stingy, only economical with something that al ways gave me pleasure. Now, come, take these branches " Grant superseded John, and with extended arms received tho weight of tho sweet brier. IIo did not move, and Amy said, without looking: "that will do, John; now go. Still ho moved not. She looked around with surprise, and started at the tableau a handsome stranger gazing at her with his extended arms lull of sweet brier. "I am waiting for tho rest, Amy waiting for the httlu woman who used to tease and please until I learned to call her Sweet Brier." She knew, then, it was Grant, and with a glad cry camo bounding down thu steps and was received into his arms. Amy Ludwiek was a study that day. Grant Burcliaid watched her with a loving pride. There was nothing in her dress, manners or conversaton to offend. She was an educated and cul tivated woman. At thu close ot the day ho said to his ftieud : "Emery, you have lost your wager. Was I not wise to cling to my old love ?" "Bo generous, now, and don't cling any longer," replied Kalph Emery. "I will try to compensate her for her loss," Grant Burcliard's black eves twin kled as he answered : "l'ardon me, but in tho language of another, 'I don't seo it."

XV I, NO -111 XMI, NO 4i 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 inent lawyer employed as counsel for 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 : WIIlr.NI.V's CO.NI-LsMON. "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 in Canada wero completed, but thu Canadian -Masons disappointed tlu in. Alter several meetings of thu lodge in Canada, opposite Fort Niagara, a re- lusal to li no anything to do with Mor gan leu ins "Kidnappers greatly per plexed, wppoitunely a uoval Arch Chapter was installed at Lewiston. The occasion brought a largo number of enthusiastic Masons together. 'After Hiiior, in Masonic language, t hev 're tired to refreshment.' Under tlio ex ularation of champagne and other viands the Chaplain, the Kev. F. II. Ctinimitigs, of Koehester, was called on tor n toast, lie responded with pecdiar emphasis and in the language ot their ltual : 'lhe enemies of our order May they liiul a grave six feet deon. six feet long and six feet duo east anil west. TUP. Alllll'OTlON AND MUlDHIl. "Immediately after that toast, which was received with great enthusiasm, Colonel William King, an olliei r i,i our war of I Si: and then a uiemln r oi Assembly from Niagara county, called Whitney, of Koehester i Howard, ol Buffalo ; Chubbiiek, of Lewiston, and Gaisidc, of Canada, out of the room and into a carriage furnished by Major Barton. They were ibiven to Fort Niagara, repaired to the magazine and informed Morgan that thu arrange menu for sending him to Canada were completed and that his family would soon tullow him. .Morgan received thu information cheerfully and walked with supposed friends to thu bout.whiuh was rowed to tho mouth of the river, where a rone was wound around his body, to eaeh end of which a sinker was attached. Morgan was then thrown uvei board. Ho grasped tho gunwale of the bout convulsively. Gaibide, in forcing -Morgan to relinquish his hold, was severely bitten. "Whitney, in concluding his narr.i (ive, said ho was now relieved irom a heavy load i (hat for four years ho had not heard thu window uistlo or nnv other noise nt night without thinking tlio Sheriff was after him.

I promised to do so beforo leaving Chicag?. There was no leisure, however, during tho sitting of tho con vention, nnd even bofore its final ad journment, forgetting what I had told Whitney, I hurried to Iown, returning by way "of Springfield to visit Mr. Lin coln. In the excitement of (ho canvass which followed, and the secession of the Southern States upon Mr. Lincoln's election, I neglected (ho important duty of seeming (he confession Whit ney was so anxious to make. In 1861 I went to Europe and while in London wrote a let(er lo Whitney asking him to get Alex. B. Williams, then n resi lient of Chicago, to do what 1 had so unpardonably neglected. That letter reached Chicago ono week after Whit ney's death, closing the last and only chance for the revelation of that im portant event. "Whitney was a mason by trade, honest, industrious, sober, but excitable. In all the early stages of tho Morgan affair he believed lie was doing Ids duty. The final crime wns committed muter the eiroiitustnnces I have re lated." Use of Goal. 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." iWiturt. 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?"
