RV PICTURE GALLERY.
BY IIYNISTE Z. OWREY
I have no costly pictures on my wall,
To hide Its rudeness,by their splendor grand;
No portrait of a lace that was my all,
Touched by an artist's master band
«But as I sit betoro the dying are,
I see strange scenes,—these are my pictures,
I trace each line, with eyes that never tire,
Until 1 see them growing clear.
There is a land-scape now with chun-h and
And farther down beside the stream a ;
Look ; how the sun shines bfightly or. that
Where oft we stood in twilight, still.
But ah I That scene is gone ;—a face appoars
And gazes out with dreamy thoughtful es,
Upon a space, as if to rend the years,
That are the Future's hidden prize.
Hut with a smile, it also fades from sight
A bower appears, where sleeps a maiden Pm;
Hush ! see that serpent cross her foreld
It strikes her heart ;—This is despair.
But even as I gaze, there comes a form
It kills the serpent, with its snowy wings,
Then takes the maiden to its bosom warm
And soars away, whilst gladness 812 p.
Ah ! me, the fire is growing black and dim,
But one more picture is them to behold,
'Tis like a scene of Heaven ; List ; a hymn
Came floating forth from Gates of Gold.
But all the light has vanished from the grate
The walls are bare as those within my room
The tire is dead ;—my spirit came too late
To save some from the midnight gloom.
THE PRISONEE TO THE SIIVAL-
FRONI TILE ITALIAN OF QEIOSSI
Pilgrim swallow, skimming fleet
Past my window, .g,alnst the blue
With thy flexile song and sweet
Every morning sung anew ;
What the story thou wouldst tell,
Swallow, with thy ritornelle
Mournest thou, like me, ppor bird,
For thy mate, far, far away ?
Little widow ! all unheard
Is the pathos of thy lay,
Save by me—l feel too well
The anguish of thy ritornelle !
Less unhappy far than I,
Thou on darting wings canst rise ; •
Skim the lake and search the sky,
Fill the sad air with thy cries;
All day long thy grief canst tell,
Swallow, with thy ritornelle!
Ah ! could I but fly with thee I
Leave this prison where 1 pine,
Whence the air is barred to me,
Where no blessed sun may shine
Scarcely to my dreary cell,
Swallow, comes thy ritonielle!
And I Innguish, prisoned here,
While thou flyest o'er the seas
For September draweth near,
To seek other lands than these
Greet them for me, greet them well,
Swallow, with thy ritonielle !
And each day my weary eyes
Through a mist of team shall gaze
At the snowy winter skies,
Longing for the summer days,
To bring back what I love well,
Swallow, thy dear ritoinelle!
In the spring a cross of white
Thou wilt find here in the grass ;
In thy circling evening flight,
Sometime by that headstone pass!
Then of peace alone shall tell,
Swallow, thy low ritornello

CIIASED BY WOLVES
It is scarcely one year since the events
which we relate occured upon the north
ern steppes of Russia. An Englishman,
Gamed Harbert, had accepted an invita
tion from a young nobleman to visit him
at his frigid northern home, where he
promised him among other inducements
some excellent winter hunting, the game
being bears and wolves. The Russian
was of noble family, and . enjoyed an im•
mense estate covering thousands of acres
among the wilds of the steppes. Within
the spacious mansion all was luxury End
comfort, but outside the lOng weary win
ters of the north were gloomy enough.
It was midwinter when the young Eng
lishman joined his Russian friend at his
home. The rigor of the season was ex
treme and for the first time in his life he
realized what the word winter really sig—
nified. However, when there is an abun
dance of pecuniary means, comfort can
be realized nearly anywhere, and young
Harbert was never more agreeably enter
tained than hen in this frigid spot. Ev
ery modern luxury and means of amuse
ment were at hand, and his friend, the
Count Saarinski,was the best of compan
ions, and a good billiard player, a capital
shot with a pistol or ride, and in short a
highly accomplished Lan in all games
and sports of the day.
On a clear, cold January day the two
gentlemen made their preparations for a
hunting excursion, and. young Herbert
was somewhat surprised to observe the very
elaborate afrangement which was entered
into as it regarded the supply of arms and
Considering that there were
but three persons, himself and friend,and
the driver Of the sleigh, he thought that
the number of douhle-barreled guns and
revolvers, with the stuff to put into them
There were six doable barreled guns
and as many revolvers, all loaded and
Laid handily in the bottom of the vehic:e,
besides each of the gentlemen carried a
revolvar irr a leather cat) at his waist,und
a long hunting knife,'. The driver also
had a pair of pistols in'his leather belt,as
well as a hunting knife.
"We are a moving arsenal;' remarked
the Englishman, pleasantly, as he regard—
ed these preparations.
in hunting in Russia we some
times come in such close 'quarters that
there is little time for loading."
"Ab. I did not Oh* of that"
"It is theAttick and sure hand only
that is safe where wild animals somethnes
curse hi large numbers."
"\Vhat will probably be our game to
"We will try for bears."
"Are they plenty ?"
"It is not so easy to find them' now as
it will be in the spring. They keep stow
ed away mostly all winter."
Two large, handsome horses were har—
nessed to the sleigh, both so full of lite
and spirits as to require the whole at
tention of their experienced driver, who
remarked that they would get some of
the fire worked out of them before the
else of the day. At the suggestion of
the count, a third horse, or leader, mak•
ing what is familiarly termed a spike
team, was added to the sleigh, as he re
marked that they might have a long pull
of it. Thus equipped, with some lunch
eon in a basket, and well covered with
furs to exclude the biting cold, the count
and his English friend started off on the
They sought a somewhat famous local
ity in a well wooded neighborhood us the
first point of search, but finding no signs
of game here, they started for one still
farther away, but with like want of suc
cess. Indeed, It became pretty clear that
bears were not abroad, and that there was
not much chance of their getting sight
of any. In the meantime they had come
a long distance,the day was already draw
ing to a close, and the count gave the
word to tuft the horses' toward home.—
The party paused, however, to give the
horses each four quarts of cracked corn,
:slid also to partake of our own
Half an hour sufficed for this, and, men
and beasts refreshed, then commenced
he homeward trip.
The sun had set, but the pale face of
to moon was creeping up into the sky,
sad reflected from the shining surface of
t e snow, all w, as light as day.
"We shall probably knock over a wolf
of two as the evening comes on," said
tt. count, but I am sorry not to show
v some larger game."
scarcely had the words left his mouth
wh n a noise behind them attracted the
alto ,non of both, and turning„ihey saw
a nall pack of wolves, rendered despe•
rate by hunger, pursuing the eleigh.—
The came nearer and nearer. As they
were in so large a number—twenty of
more—the count told the driver to keep
up ht speed, and he would pick off one
at a tne. They were soon within reach,
and, hung one of the guns, he tired each
of the barrells, and two wolves dropped
in thei. tracks.
Theti followed the singular scene which
is institytive with these wild animals.—
As 800 A is one is wounded and rendered
helpiesei,his companions fall upon him
and devi rr his body at once. These crea
tures, mieed with hunger, tore the car
cass2s to pieces in an incredibly short
time, tigh mg over the body to secure a
mouthfultand were soon rushing after
the sleigh vith renewed ferocity, excited
by the taste of blood. The young Eng
lishman soin tried his hand and dropped
three of tl • wolves at two shots, one
having eviiently gone entirely through
the body of ,n animal and entered that of
another beft-e its impetus was lost.
The same -eene was repeated which we
have just des ribed, hut the pack had in—
creased by th. addition of another score
of animals, w,ich had been attracted by
the smell or L ,se of those already in the
It began to iok serious, and the count
remarked that he had no idea the wolves
were in such nimbers this season.
They fired &Jou, each time killing a
wolf: but that - L•tarded the pursurs but
for a few mowints—so many starving
mouths desourei. the wounded creatures
In the meantime the horses were kelt
at a steady and h , ely gait. It would not
answer to use tl.m up by a desperate
dash of speed ; f 1.7 if they were to give
ont, the travelers would be torn in pieces
in five minutes,as veil as the horses them
"Keep a steady hand, Ivan" Paid the
count to the driver. "Don't het the team
lot keep them well up to wprk. We have
a long rout before ts."
"Yes, co u t."
"Now, Mr. Hurbtrt, we shall give you
a chance to show ytur good marksman

"Twice as large in numbers," said the
"true. You blaze away at them when
they get near enough—l see you are an
excellent shot—snd I sill keep these fel—
lows behind busy with each other's car
Care was taken to l , iad the guns as
fast as fired, for fear that the time might
be near at baud when Limy could not
spend time for that purpose. The wolves
had not yet got near ecough to use the
revolvers upon them. More than a dozen
wolves had been shot and devoured up to
this time, serving to keep them back by
the consequent delays each time that two
of them fell by the unerring aim of the
count and his companion.
The large pack that came down in a
quartering direction were now quite near.
and the Englishman aimed and fired. It
was impossible to miss thaw, they were so
close together, and two instantly dropped
rolled over, and stained the snow with
their blood. The pack halted and tore
they in pieces, while the sleigh kept on
its steady course throwing them far be—
hind, and they joined those immediately
in the rear. The crowd of ravenous and
ferocious creatures now numbered sixty
or more, two or three fresh wulvesajoin
ing them every few momenta from iffer
Tne count kept busy with his iiun,but
said not a word. The expression upon
his features, however, was one of consid—
erable anxiety, and he was careful to re
load at every fire.
The wolves now spread themselves out,
all the while on the run, in the shape of
a half-moon or crescent, so that the two
ends of the pack, now numbering a hun
dred at least, nearly came on ailing:. with
the sides of the sleigh, thoughisome rode
distant. The count and his Companion
kept busy, and at each fire of the 'double
barrel guns,a couple of wolves tvere sure
to drop, when all the pursuers would stop
for a few minutes to devour their com
rade, and again commence the chase•
It was impossible in trite partial dark—
ness to tell where the additions to the
mad creatures came from, hut that the
puck was rapidly increasing Was very
manifest, and in order to keep them from
coming near enough to leap upon the
sleigh and its- occupants, and the two
gentleman were compelled to fire rapidly,
and to distribute their shots all along the
curving line of the pursuers.
"This is terrible," said the count at last
"Is there no end to their tombers ?" as
he reloaded his gun after killing a couple
of the nearest."
'I suppose they would devour us in—
stantly, if they reach us," said- the Eng
"Undoubtedly'." replied the count.
"Hold your revolver ready. They are
coming close now, and we must blaze
away all ut once, dropping as many as
possible, and this will gave them a good
check, at least for a few minutes."
The horses seemed to realize the exig
ency of the case, and though panting
severely at the lone-continued exertion,
still kept pressing forward at a swift pace.
Though more than forty wolves had been
shot, and devoured by their comrads, it
8 , - , 2111E1 that the taste of blood had only
fired the appetites, of the rest of the pack
the numbers of which had increased con
tinually until more than a hundred and
fifty were now howling after the sleigh.
As the count had said, they were draw
ing very near now, and the gunswere
rapidly emtied into their ranks. Each
drew his revolver (or close action, the
gentlemen taking a revolver in each hand
just in time. Fifty open months were be
side the sleigh on either side, and a hun—
dred behind !
"Now, altogether,"said the count; "let
them have it right and left."
Ivan, who was perfectly cool, fired his
six charges with deliberate though rapid
rim, dropping a half-dozen wolves, while
the count with both hands tired down
their throats on his side, and the English
man, though with less coolness, yet with
equal effect, shot down the ravenous
beasts on his side. More than a dozen of
them rolled over on their sides, while the
rapid discharges of the revolvers nearly
together, started the horses to fresh exer
tion and they seperated from the wolves,
who paused to devour their bodies bleed
ing upon the snow.
• The delay among the pursuing beasts,
who fought wildly over the bodies which
they so quickly tote in pieces, gave the
party in the sleigh a breathing moment,
though a brief one. The time was im
proved to reload all the revolvers and the
guns, while the horses were eased a little
in their rapid gait in order to save their
strength for a crisis which was doubtless
to follow. It was four miles at least to
the shelter of his own grounds, as the
count was compelled to admit. Whether
they could keep the ferocious beasts at
bay long enough to travel that distance
was a problem.
The pack now turned again to pursue
"Thank heaven for this respite, short
as it is," said the count, drawing a long
breath, and disposing the guns for ready
use, now all reloaded.
The young Englishman said little. He

"Lay your knife ° loose, for it may come
to that,' said the count.
Ou came the legion of howling devils,
their eyes gleaming in the dim light, and
once more they were upon the sleigh.
"Blaze away together," said the count.
As before wolf after wolf rolled over
bleeding upon the white snow crust, but
blood only seemed to madden the army of
ravenous beasts crowding forward, and
now the count having emptied his two
revolvers, took his long knife and slashed
right and left, giving death wounds at
every stroke, to the wolves that crowded
one upon. another, until he had almost
lost his breath. But such a hecatomb of
slaughtered creatures lay all around that
the whole pack was checked, while the
sleigh, dragged slowly on by the drooping
horses, crept away from them. The count
had only been saved from the teeth of
those on his side by the thickness of his
fur clothing, while the Englishman had
only used the revolver, ti o extra ones of

in the bottom of the sleigh.
He Caine to his, coolness and courage
at last, and fired with precision each time

They bud only time to load their guns
before the howling pack started for them
again, the count, with the coolness of a
veteran, shooting them down one often
another. They were still two miles from
"The horses are doing all they can ?"
"Givs me the reins. Jump out and

The intelligent driver did as he was
bid. The horse died instantly. The. dri

was moving homeward again. The count
now turned once more and emptied gun
after gun into the crowd that stopped
about the horse, while the Englishman

But the horses could hardly move fast
er than a smart walk, now and then trot•

used up.. The arms were once more all
loaded, and one by one, then by twos, at
last all together,the wolves left the carcass
of the horse. 'Ab I - those precidus mo
ments in which they had been thus en.

in the sleigh. The house was .in sight.
The horses made an extra effort at the
cheering view before them. The count
stood up and delivered a dozen shots one
after another among the wolves, causing
still further check to their progress, and
the servants in the house, aroused by the
noise, threw wide the gates,through which
the horses crept and fell at once in the

behind the high walls of which they were

honey, and made Iva!' drink it as hot as
possible but to his companion he gave it

after all," said the count, as they sat
smoking at last before the broad, well
filled tire place.
"And it was providential that you put
him into the team after it came up to the
door," acid his friend.
Then it was explained to the visitor
that this was a remarkable instance.—
The heavy snows had cut off all sources
of food from the wolves, and had thus
rendered them ravenous. At most sea—
sons of the vett:, they were very shy, and
were hunted with perfect safety, it being
only necessary to avoid them alter night
fall, when they were apt to herd in pack,
in order to fight such animals as were
superior to themselves, unless attacked

A GRANGER'S ADDRESI,
The following is' an address delliered by
James G. Mcfiparran, Master of Fulton Grange
No. 66. P. of H., January filet, which we find
reported in the Lancaster Examiner of the 7th
"It has been your pleasure to elect me Mas
ter for the present year. I thank you for this
expression of your confidence, and promise for
the future as in the past to strive to do my du
ty. One year ago our Orange was organized.
Twenty-seven names were enrolled. We now
number seventy-nine. Is there not 111 this fact
convincing evidence that there must be merit
in the organization ? Could we reasonably ex
pect a more rapid growth ? We have made
purchases to a considerable extent. Not large
ly, it is true; and I am satisfied we acted pm•
deftly in not buying extensively until our bus
iness arrangements were matured. Enough
has been done, however, to satisfy every intel
ligent mind that our organization is a success
in a pecuniary point of view. Whenever our
order has gained sufficient strength ; whenever
our opponents are obliged to admit our
strength and efficiency, then will we be amply
repaid for our effort; then will we dictate our
terms rather than be dictated to by those who
are really dependent upon us. Has not oar or
ganization been a success in a sociallview ? Is
there not much to bo gained by associating
those of different denominations and of differ
ent politics? There certainly is., We thus
learn to exercise charity toward each other,tunt
be more tolerant in our differences of opinion.
We are yet but in our infancy as an order.
What has been done is hut the beginning of
what can be done. We are but awakening to
a sense of oar standing and our strength. We
demand only what is Just, and will be satisfied
with nothing less. , Why should we assert our
rlyhts? Why should we claim the respect of
our fellow-men in other vocations t Why
should we claim equality with them in any res
pect? Are we not farmers? And as Such,
have we not ever been despised by those in oth.
er walks of life who would constitute a supe
rior class in society? We certainly have. Can
it bo denied that true 'merit and solid worth
are oftentimes ignored, simply because their
possessor Is a Nile , of the soil We desire
to remove this prejudice against our calling.
We demand that true worth shall be recogniz

mand unreasonable t Can there be a doubt
that it will be complied with? Our undertak
ing is by no means an uncertain one. We must
respect ourselves if we would be 'tweeted. It
•seems to be a principle of nature to impose on
those who will submit to It. We as a class have
been imposed on in manifold ways, but we now
sound the note of warning to our oppressors
and declare our shackles
be removed. We
realize our strength, and if necessary will Use

without woman. with her refining infittence,we
can never succeed as far as pecuniary benefits
are concerned, but allow me to say, these con
stitute the smkff half of the advantages to be
derived from our organization. Our Grange'
will never be what we can make it until our
wives,daughters and sisters are connected with
us in the order. In this work, as in other en
terprises, those will be most benefitted who use
efforts to balance our interests. It Is to be
hoped we have no member lacking interest in
our cause. All, I trust, realize the magnitude
of the work we have before us, and are willing
to use their efforts towards its accomplishment.
If each member is actuated by proper motives
and is willing thus to exert themselves'," our
Grange, which heads the list in numbers to our
county, will not only be able to maintain its
place, but we will be able to demonstrate
through it that our cause is a success.

some missionaries in Cuba who reduced their

their labors with the least possible interrup

over a brass basin. The moment they lost
their consciousness the ball dropped from their

in Montana the temperature has been. as low
as fifty-sir degrees below zero. Extremely
cold weather is as disastrous to vegetable as to
animal lite. Our obituary columns show bow
fatal the comparatively cold weather here hes
been to those in feeble health, and fears are en
tertained that vegetation may suffer during the
winter. The continuance of cold weather Is
not so much a source of danger as the extreme
cold sometimes reached, and Infinitely less
dangerous than the suddenness of its coming
and the circumstances attending it. When the
snows have been melted from the ground and
the moisture penetrating the soil begins to
loosen the frost, a sudden snap of extremely
cold weather kills the budding seed, and too
often injures or kills the mature tree or shrub.
Reasoning humanity is really more subject to
the danger resulting from sudden changes than
unconscious vegetation. Before a brief warm
spell has swept away the protecting snow and
tempted the seeds to put forth their tender
shoots, impatient people too often lay wide
