Eneliantlng girl I thy form so fair
In playful dreams around me dances
They smile m bright, so free from care,
Thy dimpled theck ,thy Jet black hair,
My haart entrances.
But. oh 1 those eyes, those lovely eyes,
With Joy and innocence still gleaming 1
The winged light scarce swifter flies
Than do thu glances fiomlhoie eyes !
With pleasure beaming.
I'd won thee, maiden, were tt not
That wooing thee might prove beivlldcrln,'
I'd woo thee, maiden, were it not
J'or this one thlni wire 1'vk oot,
And sit svull imildiic.

During the year of 13-17 Iho West was
flooded with a ooui'tcrlleit coin, It was
so well manufactured that it passed rcadi-
Tho evil at last bceamo so great that
tho United States authorities requested
that a skiful detebliVe uiij-ht bo sent to
ferret out tho nest of coiners. I was iixetl
upon to perform that duty.
I had nothing to guide me. The fact,
however, that Chicago was the city where
the counterfeit coin was most abundant,
led me to suspect that tha manufactory
was somewhere within its limits. Il was,
therefore, to the capital of the West that
I proceeded. I 'spent live weeks in the

thoupht I 6hou'd bo obliged to return
home without having achieved any result.
One day 1 received a letter from my wile
requesting mo to Fend souic money, as
she was out of funds. I went to the hank
aud aked for a drult, at the ehiiio lime
bunding a turn of money to p iy for it, iu
ivhi h there were several half dollars. The
clerk pushed three of ihetn back to me,
saving, "countci feit.'
'What 1" said I, "you don't mean to
tell mo those half dollars aro counterfeit!"
"Are j ou certain I"
''Perfectly certain. They arc remark
ably executed, but aro deficient in weight,
Sec for yoursslf."
Ar.d he placed one of them in the bal
anco against a genuine half dollar, a.ul
the latter brought up the former.
''This is the best counterfeit coin I ever
saw in my lite,'" I excltimed, examining
them cluselv. "Is all tho counterfeit

"0 dear, no," iho clerk replied, "it i

dollars from tho drawer. "You see that
the milling is not to well done as Ned
Villctt's although this is pretty good too."
I compared the two and fouud that he
was right. I supplied the place of the

returned the former to my pocket.
A few days after this I reeeivoJ infor

At last I began to grow weary, and
throwing myself on my pallet, I was booh

slept I know not, but I was awakenod by
a dull sound, which resembled some ono

Now I am naturally of an inquiring

Not u soul was v'uable, but the sound 1

as I approached the place from whence it
proceeded. At last 1 found niyscll before

I saw half e.dosen men, with their coats
