STRANGE MISS DEVONPORT
It was -'•the - night of
borough hunt' ball; and Rattleborough,
as befitted the occasion, was employed.
in - holding - high festival. The large
room 'of -the Egerton Arms was full,
and the company-AS select as the-most
fastidious -• could wish.' There were
representaitves of all the great
families of the country, and the cream
of the society of the town of Rattle-'
borough itself, not to mention a score
or- so of unattached males who estab
lished themselves in the Egerton - Arms
and in various lodgings in the place,
for the express purpose of being in.
the immediate vicinity of the far
famed Rattleborough hounds. .
It was to the very best of this so
ciety that Mr. Oliver Henley belong r :
ed—a gentleman young in point of
years, and comfortably off in .the mat
ter of money—a barrister, member of
the Inner Te'mple, burdened with no
briefs, nor with the necessity or the
intention of getting any. . His-ziather
was still living, but he had i'already
come into a very respectable little
.property; and, as was . natural for -
gentleman in the flower of existence
as he was—to wit, seven-and-twenty
years of age—was bent on enjoying
himself accordingly. With this high
ly laudable object in view, lie had just
made his debut in the Rattleborough
distiict; and by his good riding, genial
manners and generous habits, which
a comfortable balance at one's banker's
makes easy enough, be bad produced
a deciedly favorable impression upon
those whose estimatiob was usually
considered worth 'having, Henley,
bad had a day with the bounds, which
he had enjoyed most throughly; and
he was just at present engaged in
talking over its events with a newly
made- acquaintance, and at the Same
time passing a kind of running corn
mentark.upoifAhe dancers as they
whirled past him.
'Now, Mr.. Henley,' said the vigor
ous ball-room whip, 'will you choose
your partner 4 Lean introduce you to
any you like.'. -
.'Who is • that young lady there ?
She has jo i st sat down: The one with
the Wonderful amount of blackhair,
'Miss DeVouport,' was the prompt
reply 'A wonderful nice girl--s—dances
capitally. Let me introduce you.'
And after Henley had gone through
the Lancers with Miss Devonport; he,
was of opinion thnt,this account was'
not exaggerated. Miss Dewonport, he
discovered, was a very nice .girl—so.
nice that he made tip his mind . to get
all the dances with her that shkwould
givd,him. If; Oliver Henley . had been
asked to give•an; account • of himself,
he would, in all. probability, ;have de-•
scribed himself as the most unimpres
sionable felloW in the world . .. had(
become bored .. with'flirtation, and his
days of heavy love-making were over.
Experts; howoverer, in the diagnosis .
of Inve r makizig•Will tell' Yell:that itld'
persons of Henley's; self reliant and
defiant nature, who ; are moot apt itp- fall
victims to, the; tender, passion,, and,if
Oliver Henley had not had Such a

the eyes of the Itattlehorough.bunters,
but angry with himself for being so
much annoyed—pained, perhaps; would
be the better word—with Miss Devon
port.. He could disguise the fact no
longer; he loved her.. He had 'loved
her Man the very first, and she had
treated this__ unaccountable
manner ! But he was , prevented from,
continuing these ieflections by a letter
which wns put into his hands. It was
from his'sister, and he - had half-ex
pected it for some days past. It mere
ly told him that his father, whose
health had for a long time been bad,
and who then staying in
South"of France, had suddenly be

'come at once 3
Yes, he would start directly; next
evening. But there was one thing
he would do lira. He would see if
he could not meet her in the street,
and would endeavor to gain from her
some explanation. •
On the following morning. Henley

Miss. Deirenport—for he had qutio
determined not to leave the place with

in the avenue brought him suddenly
into the lady's,, presence. Yes, it was

look of tenderness that had charmed
him so much at the Hunt Ball.

'I am quite aware that I am guilly of

fess that when I met you I did not
know you were engaged to Mr. Hughes.'
'Sir!' interrupted Miss Devenport,
with a look of absolUte wonderment
upon her Countenance:
'What? Is my information wrong?
Is it titit as I say?",
'I am completely at a loss to un
derstand to what cause- I am indebted
for the luinor of, this interruption in

About ttVo years and a half after the
Raftleborongh affair, •Henley„„ayps,
staying , with some friends irl town.
There was to be a dace in "the even
ing,+ and the party assembled at break
fasts Were full of the comink event.
'By' the by, Mr. Henley,' inquired
his - hostess, 'ltav6l not heard you say
that you were at ,Oxford with Mr.
Hughes, the gentleman whose m i ning
property is so immense?”
Yen; of eourse,,Henley had been;
and what was more, he told the lady,
though not without a pang of regret,
he,know Mrs. Hughes—a little. - Per
haps he should hardly recognize her
"Then M . Henley; you will see the
two old friends of yours to-night.' -
, Oliver said nothing beyond that he,
I should •-'bo very glad. :Nor did -he
think much about the 'Mr. Hughes,
whose' mining property is so immense,'
but he wondered how he should meet
:the,Mrs, Hughes who had done him
such a grieViinkiivrong. •
Thq evening came, and when Hen
-163r entered the ball-room, the greater
number of the guests had already- ar
rived.- The • first person whom he
caught sight of as he entered was Mrs,‘
_Hughes._ -He_ recognized -the. -Miss-
Devenport of other days at a glance: -
The face had_changed perhaps,
but a very little; and somehow or
other, as helooked;lhe hair - did not
seem to him the same jet black color
that it bad been. While he was stand
' ing lookingat her, Mrs. Hughes came
up to him.
'Mr. Henley,' she said, cannot
say how glad, how relieved lam to
see you. For more than two years I
have longed to do so. Can you for
give me for .what passed, between us
when last we met? No; I am sure
you cannot. But when you, know
everything, I think you will. There
:was a misapprehensiciebetween us,.but
you shall bear everything by-and-by.'
But Mr Henley could only make
some lame remark to the effect that
bygones were - bygones. Would Mrs.
Hughes give him the pleasure of '-a
dance by-and-by 3
Gledly; and Oliver 'duly_endorsed
his name on the - programme of the
- wife of-the-wealthy-kir. Hughes.
The dance came; it was a waltz,
he same tune as that to which he had
aimed with her when than she was
'Miss Davenport, more than two years
go, in the ball-room of the Egerton
Arms, at Rattleborough.. When it
was over, they strolled into a conserv
atory adjoining. Henley longed:_to_say
something . about the old days but she
had promised the explanation and it
- vas for her to begin.
'Mr Henley,' she at last commenced,
-'do you remember the Rattleborough
Hunt Ball? Do you remember what
happened after Ward—that -interview
between us ?"
Henley made no_ answer.
'Would you like to hear how the
whole mat i ter "originated? Would you
bo glad if i all could , be righted now 1'
'What do yoiineau?' asked Henley:-
'Simply what I. say."
4 At that moment there was a rustle
of a dress heard among the leoves of
the conservatory, but Henley was too
much engrossed with the remarks of
Mrs. Hughes to notice it.
'Here, Mr.Henleyi - is -my explana
tion. Let me introduce you to my
'Mrs. Hughes, Miss' Davenport ?
what does all this mean 1'
But Mrs. Hughes had risen and
loft the seat. Only Miss ,Devenport
was standing before him—the same
Miss Devenport - of the Rattleborough
Hunt Ball, with the same jet black
hair, - the-same lustrous' beauty, the
same sweet, sweot smile a's of old.
• Henley was too overpowered to
speak. He tried to ao so, but . ,there
Was something in his throat which
seemed to choke his utterance. But
each understood the other, and Oliver
at hist said ono or two words, and
Edith Devonport knew 'their meaning
'Mr. Henley,' she: said, 'I have
longed for this hour to come; I ihave

[From Once a Weak.]
Ono dull day in August, just after
moorrotalloon rose in' the air at the
foot of Cleet Rills,, on the western edge
,of the central plain of England. It
was inflated with the lightest of gases
which chemical skill 'could produce,
and it rose with amazing velocity. A
mile up, and it entered a stratum of
clouds more than a thousand feet thick.
Emerging from this, the sun shone
brightly on the air-ship; the sky over
head was of the-clearest and deepest
blue; and below lay cloudland—an'im
measurable expanse of cloud, whose
surface looked as solid as that of the
earth.now wh9lly lost to view. Lofty
mountains, 'an deep, , dark ravines ap
peared below ; the peaks and sides of
those amid mountains next the sun,
glittered like snow, but casting.shad
ows as black as if they vrere solid rock.
Up rose the balloon with trernett
dons velocity. Pour miles above earth
a pigeon was set loose; it dropped
down through the air as if it bad been
a stone. The airmae too thin.te enable
it to fly. It was as if a bark Idden to
the deck were to pass from_tlieleavy
waters of the sea into an inland unsa
line lake ; the baik would sink at price
in the thinner water. Up, up,' still
higher - I What - a silence profound - !
The heights of the sky were as still as
the deepest depths of the ocean, where,
as was found during the search for the
lost Atlantic cable, the fine mud lies
as - unstirred from year to year, as the
dust which imperceptibly gathers err
the furniture of a deserted house. No
sound, -no life—only the bright sun
shine falling through a sky which it
could not warm.
Up, up—five miles above earth !
higher than the Maccessible summit of
Chimborazo or 'Dawangiri. Despite
the sunshine, everything freezes.,..-The
air grows too thin to 'support life, even
for a fow minutes. Two men -only are
in the adventnrous balloon—the ono
steering the air-ship, the other-watch
ing the scientific instruments, and re:
cording them with a rapidity, bred of
long practice. Suddenly, as the latter
looks at his instruments, his sight grows
dim ; he,takes a lens to help his -sight,
',and only marks from the falling baro
meter that they are raising rapidly. A
1 -11mkk-of-brandy , -lies- within a foot, of
him ; he tries to reach it, but his arms
refuse to obey his ital. - He tries to
call on his comrade, who has gone up
into the ring above--a whisper in that
• deep -silence would sufkaa--but no
sound comes from his lips—he is voice
less. The steersman comes down into
-the car; he sees his-comrade in a swoon ;
and -feels his own senses failing him. „
He saw at_ once that life and death
-hung upon a few moments. Ho seized
or tried to seize tlfe valve, in order to
open it and let out the gas. His hands
are purple with intense cold—rthey are
- paralyzed, they. will.-not.responcl to
Ids will. --He seized the valve with his
teeth, it opened a little—once, twice,
thrice. The baloon began to descend.
Then the swooned marksman returned
to consciousness, and caw the steers
man standing before him. He looked
at his instrument; they must have been
nearly eight miles up, but now the
barometer was rising rapidly, the bal
loon was descending. Brandy was
used, They had been 'higher above
earth than mortal man or any living
liiiiigliad - eVer been before: One min
ute more of action—of compulsory in
the part of the steersman,
whose senses were fast failing him, the
air-ship, with its intensely rarified gas,

A Ghost Story
We do uot - generally' give- much
credence to ghost stories—but the fol
lowing, which we find in the Lynch
burg News, appears so intrinsically
reasonable, in view of the awful doom
which doubtless awaits the wretch that
would swindle an editor, that we can
not for aMoment doubt its truth. "The
story," says the News, " is dedicated
in an especial manner to all newspaper
readers.' That apparitions do not al-
Crays wander without sufficient cause
is proved by the .well attested fact
which we give below :„ • .

a lady of literary taste and studious hab
its, sat reading in her drawing-room,
the clock on the mantel-piece struck

was flung wide open. In The - act , of
raising her head to repel the intrusion
(nulling for) of her servant, her • eyes

She. screamed. and fell senseless on the.
carpet. This brought up - such 'mem
bers of the family . as had not retired to
rest. Restoratives' were administered,
and when Mrs. had regained her
suspended faculties, being a woman of
strong mind and highly cultivated, in
tellect she felt disposed to consider
the whole distress she had
ne tho'result of certain associations be
tween the mehineholy tale she had been
perusing, and. her late loss, operating
Upon a partially deranged system. She,
however, considered it advisable that
hertmaid-servant should' repose in her
chamber, lest any ioturn of what she
considered a nervous affection, should
distress herself and alarm the family.,
Last Satiirday - night, feeling. serongerf
and in better spirlits..than'she had felt

-The elder Booth--the 'father of the
distinguished tragedian now so popular
in all American thetitresr—had: a cer
tain strangeness of charactei which dis, _
'criminated• him from all other actors, ,
.and-almost lifted him out of the opera
of the conventional rulea ;which - •
properly regulate ordinary life. More .
than any other English performer of

His real existence' was' passed- in au
ideal region of thought, character; and
passion ; and, however -feeble he may
have been ) considered simply as Mr.
Booth, there coulorbe no question of
his greatness, considered as 'Hamlet,
Othello, .Macbeth, or Leaf. .To the -
student of Shakespeare, his acting was
the most suggestive of all interpretative
criticisms of the poet by whose geniud
he, had been magnetized. Through
his imagination he distinctly divined
that Shakespeare's world repraWonted
-the possibilities of life rather than its
Actualities ; into this ideal:region of r.
existence his mind as instinctively I
nto - anted ; and the essentially poetic --
element of Shakespeare's characters
was therefore never absent from his..
perkmation B. By his imagination, also,
he passed into the spiritual depths of
a complex Shakespearean creation;,
grasped the unity which harmonized -
all the varieties of its manifestation ;
realized, indeed, the imagined individ
ual so completely that his own
viduality seemed to melt into it and
be absorbed. Other tragedians, ap- •
peared, in comparison with him, to de
duce the character from the text, and
then to act the deduction; his hold was -
ever on the vital fact, and ho thus con
cbil4d what others inferraLreproduc
ed what others deduced, ensouled and
embodied •what ethers merely played.
Shakespeare's words, too, were so do-
masticated in his mind, so associated
with the character they expressed, that
in„ tittering them he did not seem to
remember, but to originate. All the
peculiarities of a man who speaks-un
der the pressure of impassioned ima
gination were visible in his acting. The
rapid and varied gesture, indicating or
shaping each one of the thiong of con
tendinr,t' images rushing in upon Iris

cheek, as words struggled impatiently
I for utterance in his throat, hinting the .
physical impotence of the organ to
keep up with the swift pace of the
soul's passion,—these, and- scores of ,
other things lying between what may
be. erfectly expressed andyihat is in,
