The — Governess' Illistake,
" What'on earth am I to do V!. asked the
doctor, in a tone half humorous, half sad, as
he walked , -up nigh street - with his friend;
gr. Bailey. "if I warn her she won't stay
with me a week ; I hats lost two governess
es 'already by listening to your advice."
Well." doubtfully rejoined Mr. Bailey,
" perhaps you -are right. Ile may be safe
enough after all ; but what a silly girl she
must be!"
"On the contrary,".interrupted the doctor,
warmly, "she's a treasure. As like her poor
father as combo—full of good sense and right
feeling. I can't think what possesses her
not to lot that unfortunate man alone, and, I
warn her. Nobody has managed-my poor
brats the least liko her since—," and the
doctor coughed away a sigh.
A somewhat whimsical expression passed
over his triend'a face. Dr. Eitifferd had kit
his with, siernehths before, and had been in
a peek of troubles ever since about his three
children, the youngest about six months old.
'The doctor know do More of the details ot
household economy than this baby, and it
had tileome evident to all his friends that be
could not exist long - witliotit•a wife; but,-
whom should he marry I—that was'the ques
tion. To complicate mutters, Dr.'lloiterd
wits obliged to eke out the pronto of a not
very remunerative practice, by receiving a
patient ut his own house, and rich patients
'were - not ailways - easy - to nd.- At the time
we write of, he had just received as an in-,
mate-a aoi-distant nervous invalid, Walter
Stone by name, whom he watched with sin-,
gular carefulness, for in his secret soul the
doctor knew the man was insane, and
though in truth he believed him to be per
fectly harmless, yet he daily expected some
mad freak or felty*te appear: None bad as
liht-,-ribd-all7things--lind- gone smoothly „for,
'two oribree'We'eks, when, according to the
usual'. malignity of 'eircumstiinces 'at' mast

Walter Stone began to appear in the conduct
of Miss Stuart, the children's governess.` It
is' tree that Mr. Stone was a la finclsode young'
'math', 'With • to manner in Which' none' but a
professional eye could detect any, taint of
madness, but- that made- it all the more
alarming ; and feeling, himself as yet not
tbhroughly acquainted with the state of his
patient's mind, the doctor was 'on-tenter
books. As be said, be dared give tics serious
warning. A, nervous patlentjteight •be 'all
; verywell, but no,,governess Would stay with
a life lunatic loose about the house. So Dr,
Holford was fain to let mutters take their
course; trusting ;to the ohaptdeof - accidents'
and to Mini Stuart's• good sense to sot her
right in time. 6ftor all, he thought there
could be no great risk. Walter Stone. bad
come to him with an excellent character for.

and hope that no bed consequences would en

The - pair: in the, garden! didmot remain
.longtogether.. Walter Stone sauntered beck
Into the house, and'Lizzio went on walking
Uplink down: the abort gravel; path. - .tor
fearattnistalte, we had better let - the reader,
into a secret at once. Almost from the - first
moment-, throb months.; ago, when Dr: liol
ford• had aona her the immense honor: of
•confiding to her =Obis Motherless children,
Lizzie -Stuart's tender little heart has been
In the • doctor's .keeping. Indeed, she, bad
toyed him All her life, as her - father's friend
and heroijn—but of late phut-was it: that
made Lizzie blush, all to herself, in the eel , -
itude of. her, own room,, when she thought of
the gratitude .and- affection •_she owed' the
.doctor? Ahl. what a wealth o£• pity and
devotion iihapoured out upon him in secret,
and what romantic' castles were built'up in
that little head of hers, aaldie sat of an even-
ing looking out ypon the hawthorns, of the
.wonderful ways in Which she was to be a
help and •id,' comfort to hiin, without his
.knowing who, had done the work! But.
though her Jove Wad an "open- secret,"-there
was no ono to find it out except, indeed, the
doctor himself; did last Mare or. whom the
idea was- likely to dawn;-arid- it is. ddubtful
if, ven Lizzie bed - more than an inkling of
the troth, If she bad,--slie guarded her se
cret... Jealously, and only let it appear in a
most tender and jealous performance of Mir
duty towards his children, as to - which-the
doctor said no words, but • banked and bias
sod h& in his heart.
But within the last fortnight it bad oc
curred to this young woman to set herself up
in judgment - upon the doctor's, conduct, and
.after,mature deliberation, shejiad come -to
the concludion that he' had either made a
great 'mistake or was doing`VetrWrong.
The idea her sorely? Miss Lizzie
was n Young .lady whh ratter`piqued herself
Upon the possession of an independent judg
ment, and paid. tho youthful penalty, of
course, by sometimes too much undervaluing
the- experience of her Seniors. Her early .
training had perhaps encouraged this Mate
of mind; for her father, dear as she had been
to him, had not been able to steer altogether
cleaner that wretched system of •" spoiling
till five, trying experiments till fifteen, and
contradicting up to twenty." Besides all
',this, Miss Lizzio had lately been studying
Wifll3lotV'l3 "Obscure Diseases," that
Most: popular of scientific works„.and had
rebelled against the theeries therein pro
pounded with - all Per heart. " Very Hard -
Cash" had fallen in her Way immediately
afterwards, and, eho . had. glowed' with sym
pathy for Alfred's wrongs and Julia' love,
and for all the' supposed victims detained in
a thousand lunatic asylums by commission-. 1
era of lunacy like those described by Mr.
. • And now Walter Stone had 'crossed - 11'6i.
path, and lo 1 her dreams wore realized.
He was pleasant, handsome, and 1•s gentle
as Alfred; and, more than all,-he had ap
pealed to her compassion, and poured into
her, ear a piteous story of the unnatural
brother, who for the sake of obtaining his
.(Waiter's) , property, had condemned hirri.to_
life=long captivity- - Lizzie anevroli fact
that his brother had consigned him to Dr.
Holford'e charge, and that, in spite of his
apparent liberty; he was narrowly• watched
—in itself a suspicious circumstance, con
sidering that nervous ailments only were the
plea for his incarceration. ',Sim "ffila — even
heard Dr.-Iluiford chuckle.overthe story of
the way in which ha and-Edward Stone had
managed to entrap -Waiter into voluntarily
giving hie purse into their care, so ns to
render his eseune, by train or other convey
ance, inmossiblo.
And thl wub a sane man i tizzie's brain
took fire at the thought. - To dispose of the
certificate of lunacy was_the work of 'a mo
ment, were they not-- o thoso mud doctors,
and •Dr. Winslow in particular—ready- to
swear to any man's Insanity at a Moment's
notice? And then Walter had told • her that
he had himself given opportunity to his en
emies-in some. mornentsof excitement con.•
sequent on the loss of Money- But the doc
tor, there was the rub I Could it be, possible
that Dr. Holford. the fioi•ight and honora
ble, had deliberately lent himself co this vile
sport? . Even- Lizzie's _excited imagination
coutd not leud her to believo that. No, the
-man was not mad—that was certain—but
the doctor had been deceiyed; (us k, en eye
had been blinded by Walter Stone's nerfid
louse friends, who, though they had cum
avoided committing - themselves by
speaking of more than " nerves," had so
cunningly rded their artful testimony that
the doctor Inid jumped to the conclusion,
withOot much personal observation, that
Walter must be insane. That c,uld not be
fault—at tbust—well,-hardly, or-if it were,
ho, Lizzie Stuart, wound undeceive him-,
and enable him to make atonement
: then she went off into a day-dream,'-and was
juSt'in•the middle of a speech from the doc
tor, expressive of his deep gratitude to her
'for- -having, by-her_lwounini'deen-sighted
aess,and quick judgment, disabused
the idea under which he had been laboring,
ete:; when she looked up, and:behold the

turned into the house, fully resolved to speak

Tno moon was high in the' heavens when
Lizzio Stuart went that evening, as her cus
tom was, to sit in the nursery while the nurse
went down to her supper. At these, times,
Lizzio always eat in a particular chair by
the window. Nurse's white-curtained bed..

" No, don't do that," she whispered, torn'-
, ing herself to -lay her hand upon his arm,
and turning away her oyes, lest the sight
that might meet -them should unnerveller,
"I have a fancy for doing it. differently:"
He stood upright again, and motioned her
to go, and. only as she moved where the
other_ children slept, she_ remembered with
sick heiror that there was no door between
..the_rhorns.._ Despair gave her couragb. She,
quickened her pace; ho dtd,notfollovi her—
there was a moment's reSpite. - Softly'and

A violent pull—another—and 'the bell-rope

The madman heard the twang of' th.,,dres,.
and suspectedtreachery. He sprang to

for him. 'She-sprangtowards the door with
difated eyes and upraised hand: . -
" "Walterl Stone go back," she commanded
. . ~.
in a solemn voice. "It's all done. I forbid
your entering hire."
. For a moment- the lunatic cowed before
her, awed by - thelight in those. gleaming
~eyes, then he sprang at her throat like u
wild beast. An instant's struggle, en in
stant's agony like unto death, and, with a
mighty brush the door burst open, and Dr.
Holford, with the exertion of his whole
strength, dragged the' madman front 'the.

were 'defending my children. You have

ate you ore not hurt." -
But Lizzie shrunk from the tender words,
and cowered miserably in her chair. She
strove to compel her parched tongue to speak ,
and tell him bar folly she had caused
the death of his baby; a hissing gurglecame
instead of words, and ended in a hysteric
shriek. The servants, and the nurse among
them, bad COlllO crowding in by this time,
and n Ipud exclamation from the latter start

" Gracious power! what is this?" and she
drew forth the_ knifo_froin,the bassinet, and

surfeco yet undimmed,.
"Weil, the Deed bo praised for his mercy!

Hunting with the Lasso
Some years ago, the captain of an Annul
can vessel bound for San Francisco, deter ,
-mined. to make the experiment of hunting
with the lasso but his success was by ;no
means _decisive, The captain hail it ap
peared, by' constant practice on board the
ship; While making. the long and tiresome
voyage around the Horn ' acquired very con
siderable proficiency in the use of the lasso,
and was'able ut.twenty or thirty paces to
throw-the house over.the head of the mgr.,-
cookat almost every cast. So confident had
he become in •his skill, that on his arrival
on...the coast of Oitlifiwnia, he- emp.oved u
guide, and mounting a' well trained horse,
with his lasso properly coiled and ready for
use,.he one morning set out for the moon:-
-tains,-with the firm resolve of . hanging a few
grizzlies before night. • • '
Ale had not been out a great. while, before
he encountered one of the largest specimens
.of the mighty boast, whose terrific aspect
amazed` him not' a little; but, as he had
come out' with a firm deterininaticn to cap : -
tune a grizzly, in direct opposition to the

The Man Who Could not Commit
A. curious story Is told by Trueba a mod
ern writer of reputation. The hero of the
story was a feeble minded-man prone to sui
cide. The priest in an argument t with him
upon the subject, asserted that no nine could
take his own life, if God willed that he should
not do it. The man whose faith in Gad was
none of the strongest, denied -tho- trutb-ot
the theory. Raving carelessly expended his
patrimony, he became dejected, and resolved
to prove his own side of the argun ont by
putting lin end to.his existence, He accord
ingly procured a strong rope and suspended
himself from the beam of the house. But_
the - timber, though apparently sound, was
inwardly decayed. His weight brought it
down, and with it a shower of doubloons,
which some of his ancestors had concealed
under tile garret floor. This good - luck rec
onciled him to life. But, havihg full-n in
love with a stout lassie, who frowned upon
him, he again undertbok to disprove the
priest's assertion, by blowing out his brains,
in his earnestness to make sure of it, lie
pressed the pistol so close aigairist hisforehead
that itburst; and the explosimi frightened
away robbers, whli'wero entering the house
in search of his/doubloons-,
..lie began to
query whether_ the priest might not be in
the right. But when the handsome Amazon
he was wooing, set the mastiff upon him,
.while he was serenading her, he again re
solved to destrol m limself. ' , This o I will
make sure of ' thought ho.
~the,priest that a an ming:lll himself, if he
is deterinined upon It.!' Being thus resolVed
to accomplish his object beyond a prendven
ture, he fastened a now rope to a largo bow,
of a tree, that overhung a deep river; he
"then swallowed a quiintitY of phosphorus
matchesrand put a loaded pistol in his belt.
Having adjusted the rope round his neck, he
swung himself off and fired the pistol ut the
sumo- instant. But the ball;.instead of en
tering his head, cut the rope in two, snd - lie
fell-into the river. The lass who hadTdrilibii
him to this dire extremity, happened to wit-
Aless_thinilunge.. Shasucceeded in drawing
him out, , With her strong inms;'and at
last moved her hard heart to love. Ber ef
forts to resuscitate him, caused a &lege of
water to pour from his mouth, and with it
panic the phosphorns matched. Finding that
the combined 'process of shooting, hanging,
drowning and poisoning, all failed to-coun
teract tlp decrees of Frovidenee, he resolved
that hifivould never again try to_ resist the
will of God. So he miirried his lass, and
thenceforth behaved more, like aphristian. -

NO. 27.
pondent of the Providence Journal, has been
taking a look into the sliiirry vaults of :iMez,
Spain, which he_thus describes:
Ono imagines, when- speaking of wino
vaults, chambers deep under ground,"dark
and damp and filled with cobwebs and .
mould. But those of Jerez aro of an entire
ly different kind. _Sherry will not bear being
kept in cellars whore it is exposed to mois
ture and mould, but must alWays b,e stored
in dry; airy places, where no•damp can reach
it. The wino vaults at Jerez, !then, are
built on this principle, and 'consist of large
stone buildings erected on the ground,' per
'haps two hundred feet long, one hundred
wide, and from the floor to the centre of the
roof some forty feat high. At the top of
the solid stone walls forming the aides are
numerous grated windows, through. which,
a constant ....current Of air is flowing. In
these rooms or vaults, stand the long rows
of 'pipes containing the wine, Tiled three
tiers high. There the wine remains, year
after year, evaporating:, concentrating and,
of-courser-increatting, in -value 'constantly,
until at last, it changca from the light col
ored raw sherry into it dark,. thick, murky
looking wine, which demands a Most
lous price.
We-began with the - -vaults containing. the
lower priced wines, about $3OO par pipe, and
glasses of it were kindly given us.=
We then passed into another largo vau't,
where the higher pricqd' wines are kepi, and
again samples of-the various kinds were sub
mitted- for our examination. Pirst we had
a -berry at $4OO in gold. per pipe, and it
ecrtainly was a superb "tirtiele. —Then came,
lt-dry—shorry,o49oo per nipo,'but to one
with a taste not accustomed to it, it is gene
rally not es pleasant as the cummtm.sherry.
Then came sweet wines, which the ladies
declared delicious,. bus the gentlemen 63-
liked, As we proceeded, we tasted sherry of
every kind, at $9OO, $760, - $B5O, and $9OO
per pipe, but being unused to these rich old.
wines, we one and all preferred the $4OO to
the $9OO sherry.
At last we were conducted to an immense
cask, named Napoleon," from which was
drawn a dark, murky looking wine, which
seemed as "solid" as a wino could be. 'Joon
tasting it, we declared it admirable, but it
was a sherry so valuable that no price ; has
been set on it, because, no ono would be will-_
ir4 to pay what, it is really worth. In 1730,..
this house possessed twenty-five casks of
what was then known to be at least twenty
five years old sherry. Prom that time to this
they have zealously kept this wine, until
from evaporatiop the quantity has been re
duced so that it now fills but five casks, and
to-day they exhibit this wine, whose value
might be reckoned at so much per drop, to
‘show what sherry will eventually become
from age and concentration. Let no ono
hope ever to taste tho best of, sherry. unless
ho makes a pilgrimage to Jerez and drinks
at the monster cask "Napoleon."
