"Ilaroun ol Aleppo," said Sir Ililllp Dcrval "had,

maglo seeks to fathom. Ho discovered that tho.
true art ot healing Is to assist Naturo to throw on"
tho disease to summon, as It wero, tho wholo sys
tem to eject the enemy that has lastened on apart.
His processes nil Included the relnvlgoratlon of the

In this tho Eastern sago merely anticipated tho

now. But wo have learned something of tho rea-j

vldcd the great organs ot tho body aro not lrrcpar,
ably destroyed, medical sclenco can always relieve,!
and often save. Yet no reputablo physician now
adheres to tho barbarous and stupid processes of

tempted to euro dlscaso by reducing tho patient's
ability to resist It. Now-a-days we do not tear'

iiuil dwellings. Iletidon Mow, ns it
was called, was ono ot theso farm
louses, and ptood about half n milo
from, tho coast on rising ground not
far from tho town of Durham.
Thiity years nco it was fast fallintr
into decay, and probably by this tftno,
is in ruins'. A hundred and fifty years
ago a fine old liqusu occupied tho site,
tho dwelling of tho lfetulon fa mil v.
Tho llendons had been wealthv. but
freo livintr nnd habits of unthrifL had
greatly reduced their revenues.'
in liil I Luthbcit lluudou oaino into!
possession of the property when hd at
tained his majority. IIu Had a sister1
IJarbarn, but lour' vcars youimer than
himself, and a brother Uulp'li, 12 years,
of agv.i Their father, during the last
ten years ot Ins life, during which ho
was n widower, had lived a lifo of riot.
and the education which his famiiyirc-,
ceived at homo was not such as was
likely to boar good, fruit. Tjio father's1
associatra had been men of looso morals
and unbridled passions, and to some of'
them crimo vjna not uufatnlliar. Lat
terly thu elder Ilundon had added to i
Ins income by cnuauini; cvtenslvfclv in
coutraoaml trade, tlio locality and con-
struction of his dwelling beint; pecu
liarly favorable to suoh a calling. Cutb
bert had been duly indoctrinated info
the art oi smuggling' and disposing of
tho plunder, and when his father died
ho was thoroughly competent to coif-
tinue the business.
Taking his younger brother into his
confidence, he found him active tind
intelligent boyond his years. As to
Isarbara, sho was a cqihely, well-spoken
girl, and had picked up a little educa
tion at a boarding, school at. Durham,
where she had resided, with a feliuht
intermission of holidays, for a few years.
:t the time when ,ttiis narrative uo-
gins she was peimanctitly residing uat
During the latter pait bf 1730, few
cargoes of smuggled goods had been
successfully landed, ahd'thoJfinances,f
the Ilundon family were, getting low.
Toward tho closo of January, 1731,
thcro was a three days' calc, and many
coasters were ashore. Ilendon and his
brother, aided by two men in their
employ, had been active in gatheiing
in from the wreeks whatever was ,ot
value, but this was comparatively tri
lling. On the night of January 29th they
received intelligence that u large ves
sel was off the coast near Durham, and
likely to come ii&hore. In fact, thu
signal gnns of distress could bo heard
at intervals between tho blast.
Cuthbert and ltilph hastened to the
scene, just in time to see the vessel
driven over tho breakers and dashed
upon tho shore. Seores of fishermen
and others were on tlio spot, some to
render help, but more to secure what
thoy could that was valuable.
Cuthbert and Ralph carried off' be
tween them a largo trunk, and convoy
ed it in safety to tho Mow. It con
tained little 'of value, however, and,
angry and disappointed, Cuthbert re
turned to tho beach, followed by Ralph.
An hour later Ralph appeared at the
house, and refusing tho tood ottered by
his sister, lay down on the coach in tho
largo kitchen, and apparently slept.
After a time Cuthbert returned, and
seemed to bo in excellent spirits. Send
ing Ins sister ott to bed, nnd reassuring
himself that Ralph slept, ho sat down
before tlio fire and ate heartily, drink-
ng treely ol Hollands, and then smok
ng. Ifavini; finished his pipe, he drew
from his pocket a huge leathern belt,
and squatting before tho fire, which
furnished the only light in thu room,
ho examined the contents of what was
oyidputly a largo purse. First sitisfy-
ing himself that he was unobserved,
ho emptied upon tho rug a pilo of
golden coin, which ho scrutinized
closely, and then returned to tho belt.
Ralph raised his head slightly from tho
coach nnd watched his brother. Tho
coin being returned to its place, Cuth
bert put the belt in his pocket, and,
after gulping down more liquor, pulled
off his boots, put more logs on tho fire,
wrapped, hjmself in a hugo blanket and
lay down in front of tlio fire.
; Net' 'iay it was ascertained that
only five persons on board tho vessel
at tho.tirrfo she was driven ashore were
saved.- IJeforo this, however, a boat
witli seven persons on board had loft
tbo vessel, but it was considered doubt
ful-whether tho boat could live in such
a sea. Among thoso rescued wero a
man who called himself John Rans-
com, and his daughter S.-illiu. IIo ap
peared to bo a rough, hearty man, who
raado light of tho calamity, and said ho
was' satisfied to loso what ho had lost,
since his daughter's lifo and his own
wore saved,, and ho had managed to
bring away with him all his money and
somo jowols. Tho .daughter was a
large, wcll-mado woman of about 23,
with black eyes, abundant black hair,
and a bold, handsome face. Hondoti
scon made this mail's' acquaintance, and
tlio two were niiiCh together.
"I Lavo lived lor ten years, ' ho Baid,
"in Calcutta, and havo mado nionoy ;
not tmi oh, but sufficient to start some
thing tiiat will pay. My idea is to go
to London and start an inn down
among tho shipping, I havo a large
acquaintance among tho best of the
captains and sailors hailing from the
Thames, and I can mako a good thing
out of it. : .' '
"What do you thjuk of my joining
von I" Uuthbert asked. "I havo n
little money, and wo might do well. My
sister and brother can get along very
welt hero lor a while, and 1 can help
them, It need be.'
Rau8com caught at this, and arraugo-;
mcnts wero soon mado. isarbara o
posed tno scheme tor a time, tmuiaipn
entreated her to let Cuthbert go, as
surlng her that with tlm littlo thoy hail
they could get along. Then ho iiiadej
a communication to uer which luaucj
her shudder and grow pale, and almost)
faint i and nfter this sho exchanged
fow words with hur older brother, ,nml
in duo course. Cuthbert, R.Hiot'Om
nnd Sftllio, sailed in a coaster for the
Thames. - .
A few weeks nfter this thero catno to
Durham a young sailor, who gave liU
uamu ns Hugh Hlnok. lie was a bright,
liniidfomp lellpw, nnd announced Unit
io was .ono of tho crewflf a wrecked
vessel, who had escaped in the boati
Black found, liw way to tho scene of
the wreck, and inato no secret of thrj

nVwbrlc building a pigsty.
i no boy was struck with tho hand
omo voutifr sailor, and entered frcelv!
into conversation with hint. AVhcn ho
learned that ho was, ono, of tho survi
vors 6f th6. wreck, his, interest was Itj-i
creased, nfid, taking iu'tn into tlio big,
kitchen, ho introduced him to Barbara,
who was busy at tho ohurn.

tho young sailor waB heartily woloomod,,
and stayed ithcro that night, occupying
n bed with Rnlplv whom. ho fascl-,
nnted with tales tof tho !ea' nnd distant
Next day Ulnck disclosed to Ralph
that tho Jbject of his visit was to dis
co ver,' iif i possible, someitfiioos ofihisj
missing ohest. Tho blood niched to
tho boy's fnco, for ho hail no doubt
that the trunlc.which ho. had helped!
his brother to carry to tho house!
from the beach belontrod to the vounct
Despite, his. ,carly training, Ralph
was naturally a truthful and honorable
boy. 'nnd ho hesitated but a motrifcntim
disclosing tli6' fact that such a chest as'
the Bailor described was then In the
hotisc. 1 '
'My brother' ho said', "Wah engagfHl,
in Btmiggling1,. 'ami1 had' secrol' places
where ho stowed coods. The trunk is
th'cVe, but I'm afraid it' Is empty. 'What
is worso I fear my brother has tho
keyS." ' '
Kalph, however, had a hatinv thoticrlit.
nnd liu, added, quickly :
"It'rf iiist possible ho didu t take the
koye. I'll search' whero ho ijsod to hide
them, and bo back in a minutq." '
With that he' rati off alid shortly re
turned with the keys. Going into the
byer, or c'ow-hb'ise, in the rear ot ihb
dwelling, tho sailor nccompaiiyhig him.
Kalph lighted a lantern. Then, lifting
tho lid of 'a'corif bin, h'dsaidT
"Tho-.bottom of this bin, lifts tip, and
below.are siairs leading to the'cellar of
tho old pastle. Lay hold qf tlio, nail in
the far corner and pull.",
TJie sailor did so, and tho bottom
came away, revealing a flight of steps.
Ralph climbed into tlio bjn, (followed
by JSlack, and they "descended .the
steps into a vault, ' Selecting a key,
Ralph applied it to tho lock, of a door
in oue, corner, aud.in a moment thoy
were iusido a spacious cellar. On the
floor lay soores of empty barrels, pack
ages, boxes' and lumber of all kinds,
and among them the chest. Tho sailor
was iu high spiiits, though ho found it
"Never mind tho duds,'' ho said ;
"there is something more important
With this, ho turned the chest on
end, took out his knife and applied it
to a screw in the bottom. Then he
removed another screw at tho other
end, and the next moment the, false
bottom of tho' chest was removed, dis
closing a space in which lay several
papers and a small case. Theso ho
eagerly drew forth, and tho two re
turned by tho way they had come.
"Say nothing," said thesnilor."Thijso
aro invaluable to me, and some day
you may bo nono tho worso off for
having helped mo to recover fhera."
So much remains to be told .that tho
story must hasten. After a slay of
over tx week at the Mowj Black dopart
edj In ten days ho landed from a
smack at Wap'pin'g Old Stairs, London.

Cuthbert was now' the husband ofSal

Like most sailors, ho was only too sus
ceptible to female blandishments. Tho
tact ot ballios being (Juthborts wife
was concealed, and all that Black kuow
was that she was Rausoom's, daughter.
llu Boon discovered that Kanscom ami
Sallio had been passengers on tho ves
sel of which ho was boatswain, and in
fact recognized them, though ho had
not seen much of them aboard. Black
was induced to marry Sallio, and tho
best part of his money was secured by
tho conspiiatora. Thou ho was accused
by an accomplice of Ranscom's of hav
ing stolen Ins watch, and turned him
ono morning out ot thu house, llr.s
was a fortunate thing for him.
l'urehasing a wherry with money
which ho had left ou deposit witli tlio
owner of tho wrecked vessel, ho plied
liis' trado im' tho Thames. Olio dav in
summer ho was employed to take a
party ot ladies anu.geutloinen across
tho river from Westminster to Lam

Black kept tho appointment, and to
mako a long story short, it was discov

tho North Tync. Tho popers whioh ho

had, howover, boon rcsouod by a
sailor, placed in one of the boats to
whioh tho crow and pass-oncers had
recourse, nnd brought up as tho man's
own child. Tho lion had been tattooed
on tho child's arm when ho was 2
years old by an old man-of-warsman
whom'Sir Thomas had in his employ,
and who for his unauthorized act had
boon soundly thrashod by tho irate
lather. Littlo did he think that this
mark would afterward oriable him to
recover iis only child.
Hugh lSlaok,Or HdwardHrauudspoy,
ho was now called, took up his
nbodo at Branndspoy Hall with his
lather. A year passed, and ho paid a

Yesterday witnessed the grim clos

of modern tragedies. Catharino Flan

Another Materialized Spirit Oap'tured-
There has been rather an exciting
episode in connection with spiritual
manifestations in Boston. At a house
at the south end of tho city there have
beon many exhibitions of materialized
spirits of late. Some of those who
knew of theso exhibitions were con
vinced that thoy were fraudulent, and
laid apian for their exposure. Tho utory,
as it is told to me, is to the effect that
fifteen of our citizens agreed to go to
gether to the house and investigate the
matter to the bottom. They arranged
a plan of operation in advance. The
seances are held in a darkened room.
Thu materialized Bpiiits issue from a
cabinet and move about the circle con
versing with those who compose it.
The arrangement was that one of the
party should seize upon tho spirit,
whilo another, who took a seat near
the gas-burner, should sti ike a match
and turn on the gas at tho signal, when
the investigation should proceed, This
was strictly carried out. The spirit ap
peared in the form of a .sailor. The
active party in the circle watched his
opportunity, and threw his anus with a
muscular grip about the sailor, when
the room was suddenly illumined, and
bo found himself elas'ping a woman.
She fought vigorously to bo free, and
dealt her captor n blow which left a
mark on his faco. Tho sailor costume
came off iu the struggle, and though,
the woman retreated, tho parties got
posusision of thfc cabinet nnd ennied
away the paraphernalia by which this
mpositiou hail been carried on. It is

concerned in tho exposure, I am toltll
