throogh tbe lonely forest, and the inces

- This comes of short eats," I matter
ed petulantly to myself, as ' I plodded
along, keeping close to the trunks of the
trees to aroid the deep ravine, through
which I could hear the roar of the tnr-
j bolent stream forty or fifty feet bebw.
j My blood ran cold, as I thought what
I might be the possible consequences of a
misstep or move in th wrong direction.
" ny na i not been contented to keep
in the right road T '
Hold on Was that a light, or are my
eyes playing me fulse t
I stopped, holding on to the low, res
inons boughs of a hemlock that grew on
the edge of the bank ; for it actually
seemed as if the wind would seize me
bodily and hurl me down the precipitous
was a light, and no ignis fatnns to lure
me on to destruction ai.d death.
-Halloo o o !"
My voice rang through the woods like
a clarion. I til un red onward throorb
tangled riues, dense briers and rocky
banks, nntil, gradually searing. I could j
perceive a figure wrapped in an oil cloth j
cane, or cloak, r.rrvino- a W-rn. a.

recoiled. Would not solitude in the
wood be parable to the companion -

Dttt it was too late to recede now.

What a wanting i he snarled, with a
peculiar m-tioi of the lips that seemed
to leave his yellow teeth all bare
'I am lost iu the wood ; can you ' di

Twelve miles V
I stood aghast.
Can you t-ll me ef any shelter I
could obtain for the night 1'
Where are you going V
To Drew's, down by the maple swamp.
Is it a tavern !'
Would they take me fir the night I I
could pay them well.'
Ilis eyes gleamed ; the yellow stumps
stood revealed once more. f,
I guets so ; folks do stop there '
Is it far from here V
Not very ; about half a mile.'
Then .let us make haste and reach it
I am drenched to the skin.'
We peddled on, my companion more
than keeping pace with ma. Presently
we left the edge of the ravine, entering
what seemed like trackless woods, end
keeping straight on until the lights gleam
ed fitf ally through the wet foliage.
It was a ruinous old place, with the
windows all drawn to one side, as if the
foundation had settled, and tbe pillars of
a rude porch nearly rotted away.
A woman answered my fellow travel
ler's knock. My companion whispered
a word or two to her, and 6be turned to
me with smooth, voluble words of wel
She regretted the poverty of their ac
commodations ; but I was welcome to
them, such as they were.
Where is Isaac I' demanded my guide.
'He has not come in yet.'
I sat down on a wooden bench beside
the fire, and ate a few mouthful of

asked my guide.
Put him in Isaac's room.'
'It's the most comfortable.'
I tell you no T
Bat here I interrupted the whispered
I am not particular I don't care
where ypu lodge me, only make haste.
So I was conducted op a steep ladder
that stood in a corner of the room, into
an apartment ceiled with sloping beams
and ventilated by one small window,
where a cot bedstead, crowded close
against the board partition, and a pine
table, with two or three chairs, formed
the sole attempts at furniture.
Tbe women set tbe light an oil lamp,
on the table. ,

and looked around me with no very

JUNIATA COUNT!.' PENiVy
I thought. 'That will soothe my nei
and quiet me, perhaps.' -,
I deseended the'UdtJer. The fire s!
glowed radily on the Hrarth beneath ;
my companion and the woman sat beside
it, talking in a low tone, and a third per
son sat at the table, eatius;- a short.
stoat, villatoous-looking man, ia a red
flannel shirt and muddy trowsers.-.
I asked for writing materials, and re
turned to my room to write to my wife,
My darling Alice ' '
I paused and laid down my pea as I
concluded tbe words, half smiling to
think what she would say could she know
of my strange quarters.
Not until both sheets were covered did
I lay aside my pen and prepare for slum
ber. As I folded my paper, I happened
to glance towards the couch.
Was it the gleAm of a human eye ob
serving me through the board partition t
or was it but my own fancy 1 There was
a crack there, but only blank darkness
beyond : vet I could 'have sworn that
niething bad sptirkled baletuiiy at me.

I would lie down in my clothes and
natch what slumber I could. So, plac
ing my valise close to- the head of my
ted, and barricading the lock less door
with two chairs, I extinguished the light
and lay down.
At first I was very wakeful, but grad-

excited aud trembling -
. , , " ,
A luminous softness seemed to glow
through the room no light of the moon
or stars was ever so penetrating and by
the little window I saw Alice, my wife,
dressed in floating garments of while,
with her long, golden hair knotted back
by a blue ribbon. Apparently she was
beckoning to m with outstretched hands
aud eyes full of wild anxious tender
ness. I (prang to my feet and rushed toward
her. but as I reached the window, the
fair apparition seemed to vanish into tbe
stormy darkness, and I was left alone.
At the self same instant the sharp report
of a pistol sounded I could see the
jagged stream of firtHaboVe the pillow-
straight through the very spot where ten
minutes since my head bad lain.
With an instantaneous realization of
my danger, I swung myself over the
edge of the window, jumping some eight
or ten feet into tangled bushes below, aud
as I crouched there, recovering my
j breath, I heard the tramp of footsteps
i into my room.
'Is he dead V cried a voice np the
ladder, tbe smooth, deceitful voice of
the woman with the half closed eyes.
'Of course he is ' growled a voice
back ; 'that charge would have killed
ten men. A light, there, quick, and tell
Tom to be ready.'
A cold, agonized shudder ran through
me. What a den of midnight murder
ers had I fallen into T And how fearfully
narrow had been my escape.
With the speed that only mortal ter
tor and deadly peril can give, I rushed
through the woods, now illuminated by
a faint glimmer of star-light. I know
not what impulse guided my footsteps
I never shall know how many times I
crossed my own track or how close I
stood to tbe brink of the deadly ravine :
but a merciful Providence encompassed
me with a guiding and protecting care,
for when the morning dawned, with faint
red bars of orient light against the stormy
eastern sky, I was close to the high road
tome seven miles from R
Once at the town, I told my story to
the police, and a detachment was sent
with me to the spot.
After much searching aad many false
alarms, we succeeded in finding the min
ous old house ; but it was empty our
birds had flown ; nor did I recover my
valise and watch and chain, which latter
I had left under my pillow.
'It's Drew's gang,' said the leader of
the police, 'and they've troubled us these
two years. 1 don t tbink, tbougb, tbey Jl
eome back here just at present.'
Nor did they.
But the strangest part of my story is
yet to eome. borne three weeks subse
quently I received a letter from my sis
ter, who was with Alice In her English
home a letter whose intelligence filled
me with surprise :
I must tell you something very, very
strange,' wrote my sister, 'that happened
on the night of the 17th of October.
A lice had net been well for some time ;
in fact, she bad been confined to her bed
nearly a week, and I was Bitting beside
her, reading. It was late the clock had
just struck one when all oa a sudden
she teemed to faint away, growing white
and rigid as a corpse. I hastened to call
assistance, bat all our efforts to restore
animation were in vain. I was just
about sending- for the doctor, when her
senses returned as suddenly as they had
left her. and she sat up in bed, pushing
back her hair and looking wildly around

'And all our reasoning failed to con
vince her of the impossibility of her as
sertions. She persists to this moment
that she saw yon and was with you on
the 17th of October or rather on the
morning of the 18th. Where and how
she cannot tell, but we think it must
have been some dream. She is better
now, and I wish you could see how fast
she ia improving.'
This is my plain, unvarnished tale. I
do not pretend to explain or account for
its mysteries. I simply relate facts. Let
psychologists unravel the labyrinthical
skein. I am not superstitious, neither do
I believe in ghosts, wraiths or appari
tions ; but this thing I do know that
although my wife was in England in
body, on tbe morning of the 18ih of Oc
tober, her spirit surely stood before me
in New York in the moment of tbe dead
ly peril that menanced me. It may be
that to the subtle instinct and strength of
a wife's holy love, all things are possi
ble ; but Alice surely saved my life.

The Sacramento Bee says : Joseph
Johnson, for a long time a school teacher
in this county, and a brother of attorney
Matt. F. Jobnson. of this city, now lives
on a large rancbe in Surprise Valley, in
Siskiyou county, near Eagles ville. On
the night of January 6th he, with his
wife, was sitting, by a roaring stove in
the lower room of their story and a half
houe, and listening with serenity to the
storm that was roaring along the valley
on the outside. Two boys, brothers of
Mr. Johnson were snugly a bed up stairs.
Suddenly Johnson and his wife heard
a sound of a wilder tempest than had
been blowing all tbe night It was like
tbe hoarse roar of the ocean on a lee
shore, and increased with frightful speed.
With a presentiment of coming evil
Johnson grasped his wife in his arms,
and at that very mom eut the whirl
swooped dowu on the building. It lifted
it high in tbe air, carried it many feet,
turned it completely npeide down, and
tnrew its root to tbe ground witb an
awful crash. ' Ibe ceiling fell on the
roof, the boys being saved from death
only by the bed, now turned bottom up.
Mr. Johnson and his wife lit on thei:
beads among tbe debris on the roof.
The floor was torn out and blown many
rods away ; one wall was torn out and
blown forty yards one way, and another
sixty yards in an opposite direction. A
can of coal oil was burst and spoiled the
winter's provisions. The fire from the
stove fell into a trunk and burned the
clothing and papers therein. In fact the
house and its contents were an utter
wreck, and that all should have escaped
unhurt except Mr. Johnson, whose left
band was very badly burned in keeping
tbe stove off his wife, is miraculous.
The frightened people extricated them
selves from the ruins, aud through the
awful tempest felt their way to a neigh
bor's. The next day, the wind having
abated, the residents turned to and tem
porarily rebuilt the brokeu house. Mr.
Jobnson took account of tbe stock, and
found that of household furniture where
with to commence tbo wiuter anew, the
hurricane had left him unbroken three
teacups and a lamp chimney.
The Cattle Trade.
PROSPECT OP A HEAVY DRIVE THfc COM
I NO SEA80M.
From tbe Leavenworth Times
From statistics gleaned from the Tex
as papers, we learn that twenty-seven
herds of cattle, averagiug 1254 each,
have been started from one county since
the 8th of March. This large number
of cattle is now on tbe way to Kansas
Ellsworth being the prospective poidt.
It is also stated on good authority that
Clabourn, Texas, will drive about 13,000
head Kansa sward this season. ' All the
cattle stations on the different roads have
their trail agents out, and are making
strenuous efforts to make their stations
the place of shipment. A Texas paper,
speaking of the trade, says :
The drive of cattle over the river yes
terday was enormous. Within three to
five miles below town ten heards were
crossed, numbering from one thousand
to twenty-six hundred each, the total
drive amounting to about 15,000 bead
This is said to be the largest number of
cattle ever driven over the Colorado in
one day. All the heards seemed bound
But Texas is not alone in the cattle
business. New Mexico steps in for a
share of the patronage, and advertises
the fact that 50,000 head of beef cattle
and 100,000 head of stock cat tie are en
route for a northern market.

Late in the last autumn a young girl, ;
'of poor but respectable parentace, in !
England exhibited symptoms of "going
into decline," as the old-fash iooed phrase
is, and arrived at that stage of the ob
scure indisposition where the medical
gentlemen of the day is wont to confess
the inadequacy of his science and escape
final responsibility for the ease by coun
selling remote travel. Her father and
mother were sagely informed by the fam
ily pliyeician that an Atlantic voyage on
ly could restore her to health ; and they
being, as already indicated, in humble
circumstances, that ordinary costly resort
might been hopelessly beyoud their reach
but for their acquaintance with a certain
sea captain, who, upon hearing what the
doctor had said, volunteered to give their
daughter a trip upon his vessel to Boston
In consideration of this gratuity she
was to render such service as she could
to the friendly mariner's wife during the
voyage, and readily assented to the con
dition. But fctrcely had the ship clear
ed port, and her health begau mending
when she discovered that the business of
working one's passage across the ocean
is anything but sinecnrial. Tbe cap
tain's wife made her drudge from morn
ing until night at all kinds of menial of
fices ; and although her physical condi
tion steadily improved under the ordeal,
she secretly determined that she would
sooner remain in tLis country all her life
than return to Krglaud in that ship.
Hence, upon the arrival of the latter in
Boston, she took her way ashore without
much ceremony, and in accordance with
a previously meditated plan, - began in
quiring from house to house for a ser
The spirit to do such a thing as thti
inspited her with an air of energetic ef
ficiency, securing immediate favorable
attention from acute housekeepers, and
very soon sbe found herself engaged by
a respectable and kind family upon terms
which, to her faney, seemed promising of
an eariy accumulation oi tue sum oi
monev necessary to take her back to
Europe upon a vessel not sailed by char
itable friends A letter to the old folks
at home to icport her restored health and the air and in the tropics was so pene
brave conclusion, and the English lass ' trating that they grew in his trunfev and.
was ready for tLe adventure next to be! the twig continued to grow after it was4
related. One day soon after her Tan- planted in the ground up to the present
kee domestication, while on her way to time. Last winter1 it bloomed, tbo ovr
a lamp-post letter box- with a .second , ers were in a large panicle, pKt-pfib te!hr;-
letter, she accidentally dropped the mis
sive to tbe sidewalk, aud in stopping ab-
rnptly to recover it came in to violent '
collision witb a brusque, b'utrying little
man, ef befnrred great coat and foreign!
Gallantly taking to himself the blame
of the mishap the stranger uttered plen
tiful apology in German, and apparently LoVb.-Nw Tong since,, wrtey a cor

ensning he re appeared at the hone ! rens anxiety. Stie was as keotily wa
in company with the well-known mwical sitive to any reproach cash- upon- Kinrar
leader, Mr. Koppitz, to resume hie apol
ogies through an interpreter. The foen
ily of tbe residence, npon learning that
the polite gentleman was a highly distin
guished member of the famous Thomas
orchestra of New York, called the young
emigrant to the parlor for the requested
interview,. which did not terminate until
the obvious admiring apologist had asked
aad received permission to call again.
It was plain that he had contracted an
unusual interest for tbe humble heroine
of the letter box, and when, after attcer
tainingteW history and making several
calls, he managed to inform her that he
was an honest suitor for her hand, and
what had at first been deemed an eccen
tric whim was accepted in sentisoental
earnest. The girl, as honest, practiced
no affectation of displeasure at the offer
of a husband so distinguished, and the
berotbal being duly announced, tbe de
lighted musical romancer saw her raised
from the position of a servant to that of
temporary boarder in her American home,
and supplied witli an efficient German
teacher before he took his affectionate
leave and went southward on a profes
sional tour with his orchestra.
On his return from this same melodious
journey, by way of the west, his affianced
wrote him that her father, in England,
bad been taken suddenly sick and de
sired her speediest coming home. Ilis
answer was an inclosure of money and a
broken English letter of filial explana
tion to the household across the water,
and another letter to tell his mistress
that she must wait a few days nutil he
could eome to her, and he himself escort
her across the Atlantic as bis wife. She
waited accordingly, reports the Boston
correspondent of the Springfield Union.
The marriage took place last week, in
the presence and under the congratula
tions of American friends, who were as
well satisfied of the bride's exemplary
worthiness, and the last Canard steamer
is now bearing to the English coast- as
happy a pair of mated lovers as ever

A uentlf.ma.n of Williamsport: Pa;.
traveling in Jamaica, W. I.r was atlrac
tti'by a vigorous-looking plant growing
on the roadside in the dry and arid soil,
apparently the only vegetation" that
could withstand the extreme beat1 and'
drought. Upon inquiry he was- told it
was the life plant, and that if a leaf
should be expanded by a thsead fcnm tbe
ceiling it would put forth rootlets- from"
each of the dentate notches. He broke
off a twig and a leaf and packed tb'edr
among some dried grass and brought
them home with him. The moisture in
about an inch and a half long, and they
soon began to fade. At the suggestion
of a gardener the top was cut off, bnt the
plant looking a little uninteresting, the
top was stuck into the ground, wboo ne-v
buds appeared, and it continues to bloora
aa though it was on the parent stalk.

TH8 last words of Certain Hall to the
editor of the Nautical Gixettr, previous
to his going aboard of the Polaria, were, :.
My good friend, I shall, bring' on -tidings
which will astonish the world,
and recompense my friends for all their
labors in my behalf, or die in the U

home in the far North; where, in peace, I
shall pass away to a-brighter and better
land. God bless youi Farewell."
