Peeing, the Alissisiippi lay Brownsville.
Forty-two years ago Brownsville as yet was
not, and the place thereof was tit that epoch
inhabited by an ancient family ibf frogs, a
select circle of water snakes, many crea
tures that are born of slime, and fever and
ague. To this flourishing spot came a bro
ken-down New Englander, his sons, and a
half-score of Irish laborers. They cut drains
and raised log huts; fenced some, cleared
some; grew some pigs and many ducks;
caught fish and rheumatism; wrought hard
for a living, and died of the fever and ague.
This took two years; and as yet Browns
ville was not. 'lle frogs and water snakes
thought that they saw their way , back again,
and fever and ague were still lords of the
soil and slime, when a ship load of German
emigrants, under conduct of one Brown, a
Long Island land jobh i er, landed on the
spot, .and Brownsville yes begun. Fever
and ague firmly stood their ground, and
woundily smote the invaders; but the Ger
mans tried much smoke, and some drink,
and some patience; and though plenty of
them died off in the early months after their
arrival, enough remained to unawamp the
place, and—the second getof creation—the
dry land appeared. The Germane having
done this, the Yankees promptly profited by ,
it. They came themselves; they sent oth
ers. A newspaper office, a hotel, a Metho
dist meeting house, and a billiard room
were all run up inside a month. Then a
bank; then' a store; then a second newspa
per, an opposition hotel, and a ditto preach;
Mg house. Then besiness began; steamers
called; Brownsville traded. The popula
tion increased hundreds a month; and ten
years after fever and ague 'had won their
first contest BroWnsville was a town. Ten
more and it was a city bustling, political,
thriving; with manufactOries of its own,

SUS of one of the early German settlers
were Karl Kronheim land Louis Horn.—
They had one mother and two' fathers,
which at fiat sight seems a complicated ar
rangement, but it is intelligble when ex
plained. '• I

home consumption. The occupation
somewhat miscellaneous, but In A erice.
incongruities of occupation are nev i re
garded, provided they all tend to dollats.
Brought up :in BisTnsville, in the con
glomerate population of Americans from
all parts of the States T Germaus, Irish, and
the over-wash of Europe—Horn and his
partner had all the Teutonism ground out
of them•early,snd in Its stead no national
character substituted._ To distinguish them
they had but their natural proclivities—
nothing more. And the difference between
the two young men •w,as this; Louis Horn
had a heart and passions; Karl Kronheim
had an inner palpitating muscle which was
not a heart; but he had passions, too—bad
ones. And he had no fear. There are men
who are like weasels, Made withont sense of
disparity, and necessarily without the feel
ing resulting from that natural sense Which
we call fear, and which, under a moral as=
pact, we call consciene.
The partner-brother boiled soaps, ground
bones, made fertilizing manures, and gath
ered dollars together. ! They grew rich, and
as they got richer they thought of settling
in life. Preliminary to that they fell in love,
and both fell in love With the same woman.
She - was • a fine creature, and • - would have
made it good Wife - for I either of them, but
mthilfestly not for both. Louis loved her
first, and presented Karl to her. That day
she had two lovers. She had the love of
two men, and one of them frantically hated
the •other-zhis, brother, albeit. Another
case of two brothers sacrificing on one altar.
'One - evening Kronheim said to Louis
Horn that he wished to have a few words
with him; told him that he had fallen in
love with this girl, and that he intended to
marry her. • Louis Horn langhed. •
" Why, Karl," said Ilae, " the girl is my
sweetheartl I have loyed her for months.
She know - s it, - And tolniorrow morning lam
to meet her, and we are to go to her father
to ask his consent to our becoming an and
wife. I took you to see her that you might
see my future bride--your future slater."
" Look here, Louis," replied Kronheim
very sternly; "you ought to know me by
this time, and that I always have, my way.,
It has been so since we lwere infants.', I am
too old to change now. I You must\give up
this girl, and think no more about 'marrying
her. I tell you you must." ,
" Never t" said Louis Horn; "never. My
word is pledged; my faith is fixed. I will
never give' her up, as I am a living man."
He turned on his heel and left the room. '
" Then,". said Karl Kronheitn,- with a
fierce oath, looking after. hie. brother as he
went, "thenlshall kill you!" •
Two hours AfteriKronheien went down to
the levee where the southern steamers were
lying. liewent into the ticket office and
engaged a passage for New Orleans in the
Manhattan, a famous Mississippi racing
boat that was, running in opposition to , the
General Cobb from Brownsville to New

Towatd•evening the brothers were in the
eoniting hotise together, when Kronatelon'
who had - been silently, sitting before the
stove, - turned around to the desk where
Louis was at work at his ledger, and said:
"Before the s inen leave. off work, Louts,

Louis laughedquietly, but got down from.
his stool and wen out to the yard to give
the girders. Closing-hour arrived just as he
bed seen all prep 'red ; and the men filed out

You, can do as well as I can, and I want it
done quietly. Don't say anything about it;
perhaps you may not be wanted, after all;
but'atill be ready. Good.night."
And so the yard gates closed; and with a
look 'around the fed-up furnaces and the
row' of great simmering rats, Louis Horn
Went' back to the counting house. The
manufa c tory was shut in on all sides by
high walls,' closed up by heavy iron gates.
An outer court on which the gates opened
was filled with carts and crates, fuel for the
furnaces, and rnaterialsed various_ kinds.—
Behind this wait a second wall, or: 'rather.
palisade of timber, with a wicket door open
ing into the counting house, and communi
cating by a back door with the long 'line of
'buildings -which held the vats and boilers.
- "Shut the door, Louis," said Karl.Kron. •

New Orleans. You had better draw a check
for, it, and inclose it to Dr. Sharpe. Tell
him-you're going south, and want tobe sure
of the premium, being duly paid. Amount
is very large, you know; musn't run any
risks of forfeit."
Louis smiled, but said nothing; drew out
a check, wrote the letter, addressed it to
"Dr. -Sharpe, Manager Plulenix Life Insu
rance Company," and placed it in the deliv
ery bos of the counting house. He then
got down the ledgers, and before opening
ahem went to a basin. stand in the corner of
the office end began' to wash his hands; after
doing which he stooped his head over the
basin to bathe his face in the water. As he
stooped his eye rested momentarily on a
looking glass which was hanging on the
wall, and in that last living glance he saw
:hie brother's hand upraised, grasping a large
trap- pestle._ 'There was'a density_ crash, a
flash of tiro, a horror of cruebiug pain—
then darkness—and then death- Karl Kron
helm had kept•his oath.
Lifting his brother's body in his Arras,
Kronheim carried it out through the back
door of the office to a bed of soft ashes that
had been raked out of one' of the• furnaces
before it was replenished. With a long
knife he rapidly cut off the clothes, slitting
them to make them come away more easily.
He then took off all the buttons, removed
the contents of the pockets, keeping apart
every article of metal; and then making the
clothes up into a bundle,'opened the furnace
door and thrust thesis in. This done, he
carefully lifted the naked corpse, and car
ryine it to -the nearest soap vat, which was'
full `of boiling
. grease, plunged it in• feet
foremost. Having stirred up the furnace to
a blazing heat, he returned for the parcel of
buttons and metal articles, and beat them
with a hammer until all shape was gone;
put them, with some parings of lead, into a
small crucible, and; placed the crucible in
ono of the furnaces. He then went back
into the counting 'house, cleaned the iroh
pestle, and replaced it in the mortar, where
it usually stood; opened the discharge pipe
of the washstand, let the bloody water run
off, and turned on the cock. There were
no stains on his own clothes or hands; none
on the floor; he looked carefully. Then,
lighting a cigar, he went to the pile of ash
es, and seeitig an impression left there, and
some crimson marks, turned she- pile over
with a rake, and tossed the•as&s up. Than
Kronheim went back to the soap vat,
which he found' boiling furiously,' and tak
ing up a workman's pole hook, dragged out
the body, avith now lessened bulk. The
next vat was full of strong lye. Into that
he plunged the corpse, and in a few min
pica; when be went to draw it out,• a •skele
ton came forth with bones as bleached as if
the conquering Worm had been at work -for
years in the ordinary earthly fashion. He
was now near the last stage of his ghastly
labor, Wheeling- the heap of shapeless
bones to the opening of the entitling mill,
he tossed them in, turned' on the connection
with the great water wheel which was slow
ly circling around, and with a grinding
crush the mill moved on. The pile in the
cellar below was slightly raised, and then
the great rollers!ran idly; their work was
done. • Karl threw the connection - out of
gear, and the great water wheel went slowly
around as before. -
Then KarlaKioriheiw went back to the
Counting house, lay down on the sofa, and
slept soundly till mornings

confidence in him, were not at all reluctant
to save the company a heavy claim if they
could do so safely, and finally agreed to
place the settlement of the claim for the

trusted to manage it as he likes, and no

first time that old Sharpe has saved the
Phcenix from being plucked."
The chairman, who liked little jokes,
laughed, and went about his business.
In an hour after the following letter was
delivered to Karl Kronheini:
Or.ncr., or THE PIICESI2 liirane:scr Co.—The.

"Good evening, Dr. Sharpe. I've come,
as you appointed, to receive payment of the.
amount of the policy."
With a 'very peculiar smile on his very
peculiar countenance, the manager lifted
his eyes, caught Kronheim's, looked at him
'very fixedly, and then made reply:
Kronheim looked surprised,- but never
flinched; returned the manager's stare with
out a shadow of variation in color or ex
pression, and waited for farther observa
tions—which did not come; and then Kron
heim got impatient. . '.
" Well, Dr. Shupe!" .
" Well,. Mr. Karl K.ronheim 1"
"You-know what you brought me here
for, air, I suppose!"
"Yes, rather!" replied the manager. •
" Well, sir, 2" have no time to waste. I'll

Krontielm- was getting irritable, which
pleased the manager, who- with most pro
voking leisure nabbed his chin thoug4itfully,
never taking his eyes off Kronheim's for a
moment, and made no answer-
Kronheini. flushed up, and said, with heat::
"Doctor Sharpe,. I don't understand this

"On what grounds?" . .
" I decline to state my grounds."

"As you please," was stifle the reply of
the deliberate doctor. - •
Kronheim was fairly opt of temper now.
The manager moved again:
"No, Mr. Kronheim; I tell you we will.

We will not, pay it, and I will not tell you

savagely; "do you think I murdered him?"

cooled down that any one durst venture in.
At last a group of ' t the workmen, with some
timidity, went cautiously in through the
opening left,by the fallen gates, and made
their way toward the counting house.—
They found it nearly in ruins; but a safe or
strong room, built deeply in the walls of

in his eyes. The man gasped and point ,
but could not speak. yo they tore aw y
the rest of the rubbisl, and laid the lit
room open to the light. And there was the
body, of Karl Kron'nefro—the back of Ins

hoise weighing from ten to twelve hundred
pounds will eat about six tons of hay, or its
equivalent, in•a year. ,And„ we suppose the
real point to4ekat,is,
.Whether one can keep
his horse cheaper on - some other Product
than hay. Viis 'ls'an exceedingly difficult
question to answer—it depends so much'On
circumstances: We shall not attempt to
answer it fully at this time, but will merely
say that, in our opinion, three and a half
tons of- corn stalks and two and a hall tons
of coin would keep a horse a year, in fully
as• good condition as six tons of good hay.
We may estimate, also, that it will take
three and tt half tons of oats to keep a horse
a year. A bushel of oats weighs thirty-two
nounds.t, so that it will take over 153 bushels
•tfud three and a half tons of straw to keep
- a. horse a year. it would "take about two
acres of good land to produce this amount.
