Oh, what do they know o� pure doll(;Ut, Whoso souls never stretched out their wings In '    flight, Who never have found and embraced their ownf -Eliza Lamb Martya THE BLACK CROSS. A black cross had been sot against Judge Hawkins' name. Why it is not for mo to say. We were riot accustomed to explain our motives or to give reasons for our deeds. The deeds were enough, and this blaclc cross ^meant death, and when it had been shown ns all that we needed to know further was at what hour wo should meet for the  contemplated raid. A word from the captaiii settled that, and when the next Friday came a dozen men met at the place of rendezvous ready for the ride which should bring them to the'judge's'solitary mansion across the mountains. r I WM''Smbn^ them and in as totis-factory a tnood as I had ever been in my life, for the night was favorable and the men hearty arid in first rate condition. But after we'had^started and were threading a certain Wood I began to have doubts. Feelings I had never before exi)erienced assailed me -vvithaforce that first perplexed and then astounded me, I was afraid, and what rather heightened than diminished the unwonted sensation was tliefact that I was not afraid of' anything tangible, either in the present or ;future, hut of sbriie-thing unexplaintible and iieculiar, which if it lay in the skies certainly made them look dark indeed, and if it lud in the forest, caused its faintest murmiir to seem like the utterance of a great dread, as awful as it was inexplicable. I nevertheless proceeded, and should have done so if the great streaks of lightning which now and then shot zigzag through the sky had taken the shape of words and bade us all beware. I was not one to be daunted, and knew no other course than that of advance when once a stroke of justice had been planned and the direction for its fulfillment marked out. I went on, but I begi^n to think, and that to am was ari experience, for I had never beou taught-to reflect- only to fight and obey.      , Thehou^ toward which we were riding was built on a hillside, and the first thing we saw on emerging from the forest was u light burning in one of it3_ distant windows. This was a suiTprise, for the hoiu: was late,' and in that part of the country peoplo were, accustomed to retire early, even such husy men as the judge. He must have a visitor, and visitor meant a possible complication of affairs; so a halt was called, and I was singled odt to reconnoiter the premises and bring back word of what we - had a � right to expect. I started' off in a, sti-ange state of mind. The fear I had spoken of had left me, but a vague shadow remained, through which, as thi-ough'a mist, I saw the'light in that far away window beckoning me on to what I felt was in some way to make an end of my jsresent life. As I drew nearer to it the teeling increased; then it, too, lett me, and 1 found myself once more the daring avenger. This wns when I came to the foot of the hill and discovered I had but a few stejis more to take.        ' The ihouse,! which had now become plainly -visiblei-wAsa solid one of stone, built,"as J have said; on the . hUlsido. It faced: the' road;as>Ayas> shown by; the-large � portico' dimly to .be-,;disceniedi in' that'direction', but its rooms were mainly on the side, and it was from one of these that the light shone. As I canie yet nearer! pbrceived-that these rooms: were' guarded by a piazza, which, corii-municatiiig. with the iwrtieo in front, afEorded an open road to that window and a clear sight of what lay behind it. I was instantly ofi.myhorse and upoii the i)iiizza, and baforo I had time to realize .that my fejirs had returned iom'e � with double force.I had crept stealthily toward � that uncurtained window, arid ' looked in. � .'What did I see? At fii-st nothing.but .;' a calm, studious liguro bending above a hatch of closely wiitten papers,vppon ;r;,iWJiich the hght shone too brightly, for, ...:..meito. perceive much of, whatlay .beliind them.

Jackets of sealskin are ti-immed with bands of leopard skin, and shoulder capes are iriade-of leopard, bear, tiger and wildcat or 13T1S. In fact, the only fur unrepresented it seems to me is that of the opossum and pig. Dog there is, and cat I am sure, so that it is comparatively easy to be in fashion as far as fur goes.    , Very pretty novelties in trimming are made by applique in kid, leather or velvet outlined in beads or gilt braid. The skirt to bo trimmed should have the front breadth quite plain and wider than usual, and the applique can be put on in perpendicular figures or a horizontal band which reaches around :to the back breadths. The leather makes a: rather stiff trimming, which is suitable for serge and cloth; while Idd is more suitable for soft vicunas and ^ricots, and velvet can be used on anything with equal propriety and effect. The pattern should be stamped on the material' and be applied and basted to the goods, after which ^that portion to be cut away is removed with a sharp pair of scissors. The edge can be turned in and hemmed down, or laid flat arid buttonholed on, which is the best way. Only a little should be cut out at a time. Satin is now being .displayed as the high novelty" in very thick and excellent quality, black being the favorite, made up with some combination .of color. A magnificent gown of tlris kind was recently imported for a lady of my acquaintance. Tlie dress was cut prin-cesse, en traine, and had waist drapery and sash made of gold colored satin. The front breadth was of gold. color and black brocade. The sleeves were made with slashes of gold and black satin, and the whole gown was most superb, though comparatively simple. I noticed recently a great quantity of striped petticoats in colored wool, which are the revival of the old Balmoral skirts over which our mothers used to toop their dresses in festoons., They are in sizes for women and tiny little girls, Ii'i-upresMlblo StatiHticiuns. France still remains the country most prolific in energetic and irrepressible statisticians. One of the tribe has lately been busily engaged in getting up facts and figures about persona s.initten with the mania for collecting all sorts of ob jects. There are, he informs us, 18,000 col lectora of botanical specimens and 20,000 antiquaries. The labors of these people, however, are ho thinks lofty and noble compared to those of the beings who stick pins in beetles' and love to exhibit the impaled insects in glsvss cases, on of the silly collectoi-s of 'bus and trnin tickets. The statistician has also much to say about the scrap book people and the hunters after historical buttons.

There is only one way to cure deafndas, and that is by constitutional remedies. Deafness is caused by an inflamed condition of the mucous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect he'ar-inc, and when it is entirely closed, deafness is the result, and unless the inflammation can be taken out and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever, nine cases out of ten are caused by catarrh, which' is nothing but an inllamed condition of the mucous surface. We will give one hundred dollars for any case of deafness (caused by catarrh) that we cannot cure by taking HoU's Catarrh Cure, bend for circulars, free. F. J. Cheney, Toledo, Ohio.
