About a week afterward, a short note in
formed Miss Temple that having Kwi !l
Ida savings in a had singulation, he should
not think of holding her to an engage
ment which would he out of his power to
consummate in years.

to work s>> late, though 1 often do; I aiu

♦•"Well, aM i-* SomelMwly Temple had
about one hundred thousand dollars lett
her, but it wasn't our pretty little friend."
" But 1 heard you were attentive, some
said engaged."
"There's no telling what might hire
been but for the fool of an aunt making a
mistake in names. However, it's all over
now. You know that. lat least can't
afford to marry, if she is a Peri. I know
von entertain some sort of a foolish notion
that love, etc., will do, but it's all bosh.
Give me the dimes!, my hoy. When pov
erty comes in at the window, etc., you
know. Take my advice and drop all such
foolish ideas."
Ashton might as well have talked to
the lamp-post for all the hearing Xed
Famhaut did. What he was thinking of
we cannot say, but he did not go to the
park that afternoon, and the evening found
him in the little parlor which had so often
been graced by Charley's presence. Ere
the evening had passed he had explained
his long absence, told her of his better
nrMpect*, and offered his heart and hand.
She asked three weeks to consider, he to
visit her as often as he pleased. After
that time he was accepted, and Anna
learned what true love was.
Here my story might end, but there is
a sequel. Some months after the engage
ment Mr. Smith tapjesl Xed on the shoul
der, and motioned him to the private of
"Going to marry my niece I" said that
" I am engaged to Miss Anna Temple,
sir, and we expect in a quiet way to he
married, one month from to day. Hut I
was not aware that she wa your niece."
'• Neither was I until a few days since.
As for your quiet way, understand me,sir.
the child of my only sister can be married
nowhere else hut in ray house. Come,
now, no flinching, I've heard all about it.
Bat she's poor—poor as Job's turkey ;
and I've too many children to give her
inore than a decent wedding."
Ned did not understand the expression
on Mr. Smith's face, but he felt a little
angered, and replied:—
" I should never have addressed her.
aftd I would release her this moment if I
"knew she wa* an heiress."
"No you don't. I know yon. am! I
know the whole jtory. You can go."
Xed pondered Jong over thia singular
conversation, but no satisfaction came
from bis own thoughts or from Anna
She replied by a smile or a kiss. Not
withstanding all the urging of her new
found uncle, Anna refused to leave Ijer
aunt until the-time for the wedding. The
event came, and the ceremony was over,
then Mr. Smith called the young married
couple into tbe library, and. drawiug fioui
his safe a strong iron box, said :
" Now young man, you're tied hare! and
fast, and I'll tell you that you've got an
heiress, and a rich one, too. A foolish
brother of her father's, one who would
go to California, took it into his head to
die. not long since, and left such a botch

get the straight of it.
We were his agent*, snd kept the mat
ter to oar*e!ve*,becau& it was a large sum
and might create impostors. We soon
dl-posed of the one • hand red thousand
dollar* to Miss Anna Thompson Temple:
but the content* of this box, five hundred
thousand dollars, in bonds, we used more
scrnntiny in assigning, and in the course
of our investigation, I not only tound the
rightful owner of oU' trust, but the child
of my only sister. Sir, you are worthy of
her, and what is less, her fortune. The
morning papers will announce you as a
partner ia our house."
A* Aunarrrsrso Srrr.—ln the Su
preme Court of the county of Monmouth,
N. J., a suit fur over 81",0W was com
mceeedagainst the great huchu man, by
Hudson & 31 (-net, advertising agent-", of
New York. In June, 1870, the Doctor
BJiuie two large contract* with the plain
tiffs; in one of which it was agreed to
print the Doctor's advertisement, a col-
UUJU in length, in one hundred and fifty
papers in the Territories of the West
and tbe Sandwich Islands. In the sec
ond, to publish one of equal length in
I.2^onewsp:-pi raiu various State*. Each
of these ndvertLscnn-nU to be inserted
fl'ty-two times in the papers mentioned.
The amount to be pni<l on these contracts
was over 850,000. Dr. Helmbold be
coming unable to pay before the close,
they were discontinued, and a bill for
some 834,000 rendered, on which there
had 1 teen paid $17,000. For tin- balance
of this bill suit was bronght The pros
ecution was lie gun in this court because
the Doctor has considerable property in
the county on which they hope to exe
cute. The plnintifls obtained judgment
for the full amount claimed.
ROASTED TO DEATH.— A singular and
horrible accident was recently invest ga
ted before the courts in Cologne, Prussia.
One day last fall the house of a peasant
named Franr Bucher, was deserted; lie
was advanced in years and crippled with
rheumatism. He had been in ths habit
of crawling into the large oven where
bread was cooked, to sleep. On the day
in question be went into bis accnsfomed
sleeping-place, where the warmth soon
alleviated his pains and sent him to sleep.
Toward evening the servant entered, and
seeing the old man in the oven, told him
to come out. or he wonlfl get warmed up
too much. He refused, and retired to the
rear of the oven, pulling the doors togeth
er. The servant thinking the heat would
scare him, allowed the cooking to go on.
The result was that toward evening the
man was found baked to a crisp. The
servant, when brought before the court,
declared she had completely forgotten the
old man, and was merely condemned to
twenty-four hours' imprisonment.
LOST. —A Texan tells the story of lost
oDportunities : "Now, you see," said
he, " land was cheap enough at one lime
in Texas. I have seen the day when I
could have bought a square league of
land, covered with fine grass and timber,
for a pair of boots." "And why didn't
you buy it ?" asked his companion.

enclosed by a high brick wall of costly
structure, was densely covered all over
with tombstones and" monuments, uiany

time, the grandees of the parish sat, in

used as a chopping-block. The brick
aisles showed that the church was the

—We quote the following from an ad
dress delivered by Mr. H.L Jones, be
fore the Farmers' Club of Walnut Creek,
Saline Co., Kansas, in which State the
subject of co-operation continues to be
agilateJ. with what result remains to be
seen : " I will suppose there are in Sa
line county 2,oft I formers who raise an
uually 500.000 bushels of wheat, which
amount will probublv soon be reached
and excelled. N-w. by the present pro
cess of marketing, fully 20 per cent, or
100.00U bushels, are lost to the farmer,
and go to make up the Vealtli snd prof
its of the middlemen. How to save this
is the question. I would have a joint
capital formed of S'iIXLOOO, made up iu
shares of 830 each, making an average
of two shares to each former, and only
twice as mttch as the annual loss on
wheat alone. With this money I would
have built an elevator and store, at n
coat of, say 8100,000, leaving 8100,000
as capital to do business wtli. I won hi
have this money used in the foundation
of a luutk. especially and only, in the
interest of thb farmers who were mem
bers of the nssoeiatn.n. I would hare
it under the eo; trel of directors elected
annually by the farmers, and their duties
limited and prescribed by law. I have
a place where bumer*Vnid deposit their
funds and seourea fair interest, and also
where they obnhl "borrow by paying no
higher rate of interest then JO per cent,
per annum, iu ench manner as should
bo prescribed bv the rules of the associa
tion. I would have it a rule that hi*
►hares should be deemed good collateral
security for two-thirds their value, and
that a warehouse receipt of 100 biuhel*
of wheat should also be good collateral
for a loan of one-half its value for n
bunU-<1 time. Storage on grain should
be fix.d at the lowest possible rate to pay
exjx-nses, which will not exceed 1| per

cuits or toast. 7. If subeequent'y during
the voyage the sea should become utiuan

THE CACHE. —According to the Pall
Mall Gazelle there exnU in England u
widespread suspicion that there in om<-
hidden reason for the accidents which arc
now constantly occtirring to British ves
sel*, and especially to iron-e'ads. Offi
cer after officer is reprimanded or dis
charged, but still the iron-clads |x*rniet
in capsizing, dritting on rocks, or run
ning on shore. Lord Clarence Paget at
tributes these disasters to orders of the
Admiralty, which restrict the use of the
engines in order to savg coal; since with
'out steam power the vessels are not safe
when near land or each other, or in had
weather. Still fucb a reason as this
would hardly prevent an efficient com
mander frorti using coal enough to save
his boat in time of danger, and further
explanations are deemed desirable.
THE SIMPLE TBCTH.— A gentleman was
staying at a country house, when, hear
ing a great clatter below one morning,
he looked oat and saw a couple of grooms
holding one of the servuut mauls on s
horse, which they led with difficulty
once round the yard. Ho asked them
what it all meruit. " Well, you see,
sir," said they, " we're going to take the
bonse to market to be sold, and we want

SCMMKR SHOES.—The fashionable shoe
for summer promenader*, say* A New
York fa-liion journal, is the buttoned boot
of French kid. cut three-quarter* high,
with toe* almost square, and comfortable
heel* only an inch high. They are made
simple and plain, without ornamental
-titcliing, depending for beauty on their
ay ininetrical shape and fine material. The
high curved French heel ha* disappeared,
and broader *hoea begin to supersede the
narrow shank that threw all the weight
forward on the toe Joints, and produced
painful corns and bunion*. Sometimes,
byway of ornament, a bow of ribbon 1*
placed at the top of the shoe in front.
I'uinp fox boots, with nppers of very soft
light kid, ere nlso in vogue. From 80 to
Si 4 is the range of prices for custom
made boots ; 81 to 88 for shoes tn stock
not made to order. For country wear is
the garden shoe, a low buskin tied over
the instep like the brogans worn by gen
tletuen. This is similar to the Newport
tie of last summer. It is made of kid or
morocco, and costs 85 or 86. The Marie
Antoinette slipper is still retained for the
house. The rosette worn with it is long
and slender, made of small shells of satin,
with a jet buckle in the center.
WOOL. —The statistics of wool growing
for tbe last ten years in the United States
show some enrious fluctuations. In 1861
the home production of wool was esti

was 155,000,000 pounds ; in 1871 it feh
to 128,000,000 pounds, the smallest pro

A limning Ship.
(Hi. that Nieht! can I ever forget it ?
The lire was spurting from every ore* ice
of the black hull, her great mainmast
gone, the luit/.i-u moat lying with several
great white sail* surging about iu the
water, mid *hu wit* dragging it along with
her. The foremast only stood, and its
rigging and sail* had not yet caught A
dead silt nee had succeeded uow to the
couimotion in the vessel ; men were
standing stock still, perhaps waiting for
their orders, and my uncle** were the
only eyes Unit were not strained to follow
the leaping and dazzling spire* iu their
an net.
Every moment we approached. Now
the first waft of the smoke came in our
face*, now we could hear s cracking and
rending, the creak and shiver, aud the
peculiar roaring noise made by £ master

"A full-rigged ship," I heard Brand
whisper to his wife. " Eleven hundred
tons st the least."
" Merciful heaven* 1" she whispered
in reply. "I bone he won't blow up.
Anyhow, 1 thuult the Lord that we've
got Mtster iu command himself."
1 never aaw anything like the horrible
bounty of that red light. It added tenfold
to the terror of the toeoe to see her eomitig
on so ui*j>-srically, dragging with her
broken spar* and greet yartl* and sprawl
ing sail*. She looked like some splendid
live creature in dwtrea*, and rooked new
a good deal iu the water, for every mo
ment the wind seemed to ri*e, bringing
up a long swell with it.
The moon went down, and iu a few
minutes the majestic shin supplied all the
light to the dark aky and black w*ter. 1
saw the two little dark boat* iicartng her,
knew that my brother was in the fore
most, and shook with fear, and cried to
God to take eerwof him ; but while I and
all gaz<d iu awful atleuce on the sailing
ship, tli* flame* burst through the
deck iu a new place, rlitulied up the furo
rigging, and iu one single leap, at if they
had beeu living thing*, they were licking
the sails off the ropes, and, shooting
higher than her to|>*aiia, they spread
themselves out like quivering fan*. 1

the water, came rocking aud reeling on
and on.
•• How near does our old man mean to

at thai iu-tant I observed that be hod
given some order to the man at the helm,

satisfaction; then almost directly a cry
of horror arose— wo were very near her,
and while the water hissed with strange
distinction, and stesmed in her wake, her
blazing foremast fell over the- side,
plunging with a tremendous crash into
the sea, sending up dangeruns shower*
of sparks and burning bit* of wail cloth,
and covering our decks with falling Un
The black water took in and quenched
all that blazing tophamper, and still the
awful bissiug waa audible, till suddenly,

sounded like the breaking of her mighty

plunged head foremost, and went down

A Lirru Too ViomasT. There is a
man in Derbv, Pa , who purchased a
bulldog, which he proposed to turn loose
m bia store at night in order to scare
sway the burglars. The first evening
after he obtained possession of the ani
mal. he locked it in the store and went
away* a hsppy man. The noit morning,
early, he w eut round to the store and
unlocked the door. The dog was vigi
hurt—the man was amp. i*ed to see how
very exceedingly diligent that dog was
—for no sooner was the door opened
than the dog aeitod its owner by the
leg, suddenly, and scenic 1 bo te ani
mated by an earnest and vigorous reso
lution not to let go until it had removed
at least one good mouthful. And the
man pushed the dog lmck and shut the
d<>or on its ril*t until the animal relaxed
its jaws, and then the man kicked the
dog into the store nnd shut the door M
if he was in a lmrry to do something.
Then lie susjiended business for a week,
and Hjx'iit the vacation tirinff at that dog
through the window* ami down tb.
chimneys and tip through the cellar ceil
ing, with a shot gun, trying to extermi
n.itc him. And that mercantile estab
lishment did not open for trade until
the man had paid twice the first cost of
the dog to the dog's former owner to
come nnd take it home; and then, when
he got in, he found that during the
bombardment holes had been shot
through mackcntl barrels and molasses
cans, nnd coal oil kegs, so that there was
misery and ruin everywhere. Dogs bar#
no more cbanus for this man.

of bookkeeping by double entry, with
rogue* for the item* of tlteir account, to
aid them in the work of identification.

Sixty orange trees are commonly plant

They may be safely transplanted at three
or even foor years, if care ia osed to keep
the air from th roots. They grow from
seed; and it i* believed that grafting doe*
not change or improve the fruit. It be
gin* to bear in from six to eight years
from the sen), and "yields a crop for mar
ket at ten years. With good thorough cul
ture and irrigation, ll ia a healthy tree;
if it i* negl-cted, or if the gopher has

hat a discs ed tree is very rarely seen In

At l*w Angelas ! eaw two trees in an or

oranges bad been picked, and it still con

f-om 10 to 12 year* from the seed the tree
usually bear* 1,000 oranges and they are
selling now in San Francisco fiw from
|ls to f35 per 1.000. I have mti-fied
mvself, by examination of nearly all the
(.string orchards in tha Southern coun
ties, and my comparing the evidence of
their owners, that at 15 years from the
*ecd, or 12 year* from the planting of
three year old trees, an orange orchard
which has been faithftilly cared for. and is
favorably situated, will bear sn average
of 1,000 orange* tq the tr a, Thi* would
give, at #2O per 1.000-a low average—a
product of $1,200 per acre. One mn ran
care for 20 scree of *uch an orchard: and
every other expense, it eluding picking,
boxes, shipping, and commissions in San
Francisco is covered by 05 per 1,000. The
net profit per acre would, therefore, be a
trifle leas than 8900. To show yon that
this ia not an overstatement, I will
tell yoa that I have been in au orchard of
less than nine acres, which has produced
it# owner for eeveral year# in succession a
clear profit of over fS.OOO. An orchard
of 40 acres in Us Angvles is reported to
me to bring a clear rent of tlfi.OdO per
annum; and the lessee is believed to Lave
made a fortune ftw himself. You will
probably talieva after all, that I have
. xafgvrated the profits of th s buslne#*,
but the orange-growers of Los Angvles
will smile at the extreme moderation ot
my statement " People tell large stories
about oranges," a#id one such man to me;
*• but the truth is big enough— at 10 or
12 years trees may be aafvly counted on
to average 510 jse i clear profit, *.ith <lO
trees to an Irre, and thill 4s l.ig enough
for anybody." And, thereupon, Aid* or
ange-grower proceeded to show ma the
soeotin 'a of one li tie orchard of his own.
which so greatly exceeded his moderate
statement, that'l shall not give you the
figures. After 10 years the tree rapidly
and steadily increases in fruitfulneas ; the

Yon Tnuoi Tarm—We find the
following sensible little article in aa ex
change, and produce it, hoping that all
i he people in this vicinity may read and
note its moral ; " Do the city papers aay
anything in regard to your own county ?
Nothing. Do they contain notices "of
vour schools sod churches, meetings,
improvements, and hundreds of mutters
of interest which your paper publishes
without pay ? Not an item. Do they
ever my a word calculated to draw at
tention to your county and its numerous
thriving towns, and aid in their progress
and enterprise ? Not a line. And ye
there am those who take such contracted
view* of thus matter, that unlera they
are get ting" as many square inches of
reading matter in their own" paper tbey
think they are not getting tbe worth of
their mouey. It reminds us of a person

made htppy a few days sinoe by a p recent

she had determination. Against every

night and day. The reenlt was that, from
a poor country girl, she occupied the po

at a salary of 81,800 per year, and now
