Darton for periiiibiou tu tnary hi
daughter Augusta, who waa a very
protty girl only twenty years of aj;o.
that cooRcnt wa rcdily girco, because
James Curgoo was quito wealthy, and
though nearly gixty years of ago, and
aoytliing but prepossessing In oppoar
an co, in Mr. Harton' oniiiuation, li is
money mado him a dubirablo son-io-law.
Angula'8 mother liaJ entirely dif-
forcnt viows on this subject, and be
lieved that moral worth and affection
were more desirable io a husband than
money, and hor daughter was of the
samo belief.
Whon, therefore, Mr. Barton told
Augusta of tbo proposition made by
Mr. Carson, the at onco protected
against sucb a mnrrnc as Impossible,
as aho toid she nerer could lovo or re
spect such a husband.
Her father was exceedingly vexed
at her obstinacy, as bo called it, and
so determined was be on this marrage,
that be at last threatened Io disinher
it his daughter, unless she consented
to marry the man of his cboico. As
he concluded this threat, bs said :
" Mr. Canon ' will call to-morrow,
and see that you receive bitn in a
proper manner.''
The next day tho call was mado, but
Augusta took good eare to be
absent from home the whole afternoon,
and Mr. Carson was tbercforo uuablo
to make his proposal. Several calls
were made with a like result, but at
last Augusta bees me tired of baying
continually to dodge ber aged suitor,
and witb the consent of her parents,
accepted an invitation to make a visit
to s tisterof Mrs. Barton, who resided
in New York.
As sbe left bo roe, her father told her
tbal be hoped before she came back
she would make up ber mind to ac
cept Mr. Carson for her husband.
Mr. Burton bad duly informed Mr.
Canon of the proposed journey, and
train on which Augusta would go, to
that, much to her dixguat, on taking
her seat In tbo cars, Mr.' Carson eame
in, and she was placed under his eare
aotil ber arrival in the city.
During thi Journey, the old man
trrged bis suit to the best of bis abili
ty, but met witb no successand Au
gusta saw hini depart from the resi
dence of her suot after tbair arrival in
the eiiy, witb feelings of relief.
Two days afterwards Mr. Carson

SNYDER CO. PA.. MAY 4. 1871,
Circumstances brought Ibis young
man and Aogosta into eaoh othor's
society, ami as she was a lo7able young
lady, it was not surprising that ore
long ho yielded to her charm.
Wheo be made known the state of
bis bcart to Augusta she frankly
told bin that bis love was returned,
but that ber father would never con
sent to the marriage, as he had wishc
of bis own upon that subject. She
also told liiru that a marriage without
hor father's eonsent wou I da probably
disinherit ber, but a she did not tell
her lovor, tbo name of ber father's
choice, tho young; man was eotirely
innocent of any intentions of interfer
ing with tho matritnorflal arrangemoula
He, however, expressed liia deter
mination to write to Mr. Barton (or
his conseot, and if obtained, nil right,
and if not, ho bud Augusta's promiao
to marry him without that conpcot.
The nlmeoco of Mr, Carson from El
tcira was known to Mr. Barton, but he
supposed that he was sliU in New
York, and accordingly wheo bis datigh
tur bad been absent nearly threo
months, tho arrival of tbo following
letter from that city was hailed with
much satisfaction by the old gcntlu
maa Niw York, April 1, lHOG.
Mr. ttsrlon : Pear Pir Your daughter.
Augusia, baa signified her willingness to
hecom my wife, but before taking such a
step, desire m to wrilo lor your eonsent.
Hoping for a favorable reply, 1 remain
your respect fully,

" Will,'' suid Mr. Ilitrtnrj, ns he
read that letter, " I thought tho girl
would Coiuo around after a whilo.
There is nothing like managing thene
pirls rittht, but what the duce does
old Carson want to write roe for T
Ho knows I an willing. However,
I will asswer biin, and tell him to have
tbe marrago over at ouco. Tbore is
nothing liko striking while tho iron is
By rctnrn of mail, Mr. Barton ac
cordingly wrolo thuri:
" Mr. Canon : Dear Bir I am glad to
hear that the girl was hown the good sense
io accept you for a husband. I enclose
you a check for f.MW, wbirb please band
my daughter, as she may need tbe money
io purchase ber weMiug ouifti. If you
tuke my advice, however, yo-i will not giv
her lima to cbango hr atiud before you
mak her Mr. Carson.
Yours, j o,. G. IUnrux."
Tho tone of this letter wai a s iurne
of much burpriso to the roung man,
but be did not honilaio to aut upon
bis proposed fathor-io-law's sdvico.
and accordingly hsutcned to report tbo
contents of the letter, and delivor the
check to Augusta
She at onco saw tbe mistuko ber
lather bad male by the similarity in
names, but thought best to keep her
own coonsel on that subject, aud
yield to her lover's solicitation for a
speoJy marriage, beioro ber father bad
an opportunity to discover bis tuistak
and withdraw tbo consent bo bad giv
en. She therefore Agreed to his pro-
posal.aod aftor a consultation with
her uont, whom she bad taken iu'o
ber confidence, it wus arranged that
tho toerrisgo should take place in a
quiet manner that same eveuiug at
ber aunt's resideoce.
Augusta Immediately wrote be fath
er, tbanklog him for his remittance,
and telling him than ia aooerdabco witb
his letter to Mr. Carson, they bad coo.
eluded to be married at ouce. and that
she and ber husband might bs expeot

Tbe mxt day Mr. Barton burned

welcome bis daughter sad bis sou-io

Is due course of time the carriage

As Augusts prevented tbo young
man to ber fatbor, sa " My faibaod.
Mr. James W. Carson," tbs satWGed
expression of Mr, Barton's countenance
rapidly changed to oo of astonish
ment and soger.
For a short time there was a stormy
scene, but as James bad only followed
tbo advice given blm by Mr. Barton,
and his daughter bsd , not married
without Lis consent, tbe old gentle
man finally eonoluded to forgive then.
Shortly after that Mr. Jaraea Carsoo
returned from Europe,' and when be
found bow matters stood, he graceful
ly sooeptod tho situation, and said bo
believed after all bo would Tolber be

Nome accidental cause, and, fanned by
tho force of the ventilating current,

off all meucs of escape. Then wo
havo the sad record of tbo Hartley
Colliery, in which by the breaking of
tho marbincry, the shaft was closed,
and 201 men and boys found a living
Inmb. A similar accident occurred
but u fow wovks siuco near Hother
linm, where the wholo body of coll.
iurs at work were In a moment scaled
in their colliery for some days ; but
happily, hero it was pofteiblo to re
leaso them,
Tbe toiler in the metal mines, who
is not liobto to suffer from explosion ot
Grc-damp, is surrounded by numer
ous danger, anallgous to those al
ready described. Bcyoud those, from
the soverity of tho lubors of tho me.

of climbing oa perpendicular ladders

oms bencuth tho surface, brnnehieal
diseases are contracted early io life,
and avemgo period of bis rxislunce
is I'Ut little above half that enjoy el

The very condition of a miner's life
renders him a peculiar man. The of the recesses of a mine
gave birth to the kobal and tbo gnoroo
types of all tbo various superstitions
which, although somewhat modi Rod
still haunt tbe miner He it ever a
religious man. I hero is uo prolans
spoa&er In "underground life,'' and
whistling Is retarded as an set of le
vity, aod ia always checked. Yet the
minor's religion is almost always that
of tbe fatalist, "I shall not die until it
pleases tho Lord," is Its expression.
A man who wis brought out of tbe
Luodhil! Colliery for dead, but wbo
recovered, was coon at work in a
neighboring colliery known to be of a
''fiery" character. Ho was asked by
a visitor if be was not under fear, ha
ving already suffered so severely ?
"No," was the umbesltatinf reply ;
"tbo Lord wbo saved mo tbon will save
me again."
M. bimonin gives a discnption of
the results of an inundation of a
Liege colliery : "On tbe 28th ef Fob.
ruary, a sudden irruption of tho wa
tcr which had been dammed up in
tho old workings surprised ths coll
iers in ibo mine of Bi aujouo, tome of

their os cap by . enfant of. the sbalt.

drowned ; tbe rest remained close
prisoners. The overman, Uobert (Jof-
fio, eould have gone np in tbo tub, but
would not do so j and be evoe kept

Like the captain who ought not to a-
bundon bis ship in the moment of
danger, be meant to remain . in tbe
ailoo, displaying the Most nereis devo
tion, aod tbo noblest resignation. 'I
will ssve ell sty men,', be said, 'or I
will perish wilb tbem.' Firm at hi.
post, he enoouragod and sustained
everybody, striving io revive the
courage of those 'wbo were oo tbe
point of yielding. Foooes took plaoo
suub as tbe poa cannot describe. Two
mo n were engaged ia a quarrel, and
while Ooffio tried to separate tbem,
some one oiolaimod, 'Let tbem figbt j
we will est tbe one who U beaten.'
At another time, all these men were
seiiedwith despair. The work that
Ooffio had caused them to begin, witb
tbo objoct of finding, ll possiblo a way
out, hiving produced disengagements
of fire-damp, thry cried to their chief.
Do not close tho eomrnnnientinn t loi
ns take tbe lights there and blow our
selves ip.' gome exhausted miner's
seemed to do nearly dying ; their
comrades, 0s thry afterwards sckuowl
ol(ed, watihed for tho instant, in or

contended for tho candles, which thry
devoured. ISome went creeping ul inu
to (liicneh their thirst. 'It seemed,'
thid they, 'as though wo wore drink

Howover, help from without came
to the colliers. At tho end ol five

A Living Stinko In it M Oman's
The report for some timo current in
Wooslcr, that tbcro was a woman in
tbo Wayno county Infirmary, two
milrs from tho city, who hid a living
nnko in hor stomach, Ins erentoJ
considerable cotnuifoi and excitouicut.
It wan gencrully regarded as a Ncua
nation story, gotten up by somo mor-
liid-miodel or li iirh I v imaginative
pCMoo. to quiver the muscle of the
strong, and trill tho nerves of tbo
But there is no Inmluig about ft.
An unfortunate woman is now in tho
infirnmry with a living miako in her
stomach, of the truth of which there
is tbe most obundaot proof to con
vtnee the most skepticnl. Wo visited
the infirmary last Saturday for the
purpoo of obtaining tbo facts, that
wo may hiyo our renders a oorreot ru
lutionn ol this truly remarkable ease,
Iur the particulars) of which we ac
knowledge the conrte-y of Min
Shamp, and A. il. Twenty, superin
tendent of tho infirmary.
The poor woman's name is Mrs Hat-
tie Lindis. Kho is twenty-three years
of ago. Kho is a citlxon of this country
and formerly resided in Wooster, an)
was brought bore from tho Richmond
county infirmary five weeks ao. For
six years sbo has been subject to con
vulsions of tbesoverost character,
which thus far the bent modical skill
has boen unable to suppress.
At Canton and Hnesvillo, Ohio,
we understand the doctor could do
nothing to relievo her, and nt Phila
delphia the was under tbo rare of
two of the most eminent plivsioisns,
without beneficial results.
In porson, Mrs Landis is of medi
um height, slight and delicate, bor
wan features, exhibiting sad evidences
of the reptile's Uialign influences upon
her nervous system. Sbo his spasms

During each convulsion she becomes
entirely unconscious. Hor body

face grows black from suffocation i her
eyes distend almost to bursting, and
turn iu their sockets ; her Urngue

and the domon of a snake twists, with
slimy folds up ber throat into ber
mouth, wrapping iUelf around the
root of ber tongue, aod darting its
bead out and tn of bor mouth with
the rapidity of lightning liko the
tongue of s snuke out of a snake's
mouth snd then tquirms down ber

Tbo sight has been witnessed by
many persons, and pronounced a fear
ful and shuddering thing to behold. It
has protruded its body at much ss
