GILBERT BABDEN, PHOPBIETOB. f Be Story of a I am going to relate to you an ep gode in my life, which occurred when was quite a young girl, and of which ran scarcely think now, without a thrii of terror prcvading my frame. I wa visiting my brother, a young physician lately married, who was living in the western part of Illinois, quite a new country then, and very thinly settled His family was small, consisting of him self and wife, and a hired man and hi< house, a simple log cabin, containing two rooms serving for kitchen, and one for a small chamber above; beside this, small ronm in the yard served himsel: for an office, and his man for a sleeping apartment. was before the era of railroads and, during the summer, it became nec- essary for him to go to a distant town, to replenish his stock of medicines. I may not be back he said, as he stood in the door, drawing on hiw gloves but I think there will be no danger whatever in your remain ing alone, and Annie, I know, is no coward." Oh, she replied, laughing, lightly but you must leave your re- volver, Harry, or I shall not feel safe." My revolver I" he answered, why, you could not use it if you had it." Indeed, but I she replied. "That was an acromplishmcnt< I ac- quired when I found I W.IP to be the wife of a backwoodsonan Harry laughed, but he gnve her the pistol, and with an admonition to her not to shoot herself, seated himself in his buggy, gathered up the reins and drove rapidly down the smooth white road, until he was lost to view in the dim recesses nf the forest. 1 lingered at the gate long after his departure, drinking in tho beauty of the cool quiet morning, with its blue sky, ribboned and dotted with clouds, its wide circling dewy fields nnd woods, whose were now vocal with melody. When I returned to the An- nie, busy about her household avoca- tions, met me at the door Can you really I asked. Would not yon be afraid My brother tauzht me, when I was a she answered, but thut has been sn long agn that I do not know whether I could now or not." Hov.evcr. I do not apprehend anh danger, Grace j our neighbors, althougy rough, are honest, clever people, and no one knows anything about the mon- ey Harry has." I knew that sometime before my brother received a sutn of money to make a pay men ton his laud, but was not aware until that morning that he had it with him, and the knowledge did not add to my souse of security, al- though. Annie assured tne again nnd again that no one knew anything about it In household duties the day passed rapidly away I swept and arranged flic sitting room, and thouirht then, as I have often since, tlut I h.id seen far more pretentious apartments not half -so cheerful There were pictures upon the uliite-washed and at one end of the room a row of .shelves containing Harry's hbr.iry A ne.it rag c.irpet covered the floor and white curtains draped the windows A large open fire place, which almost filled one end of thu apartment, was every morn ing filled fresh green boughs, arid nn the shelf above vases of'wild roses diffused their fragrance on the air In die afternoon as Annie and I were seat edwith our sewing, trying to disguise cuir lonehni.'-Si from each other, a btup f-nundiid on the gravel walk without and one of onr neighbors presented himself at the door. He was a man I h-id never liked, although far superior to any around him in culture and education. Coming, no one knew from whence, for the purpose, as he of speculating in land, and lodging with a family who bore rather a putable character, although no'hi g had ever been pnjjten against him. Is not Dr Wood at he in- quired in his easy familiar way, as he entered the room and seated himself. replied Annie, he went to S------ this morning, probably- to be going back. So I she replied, and getting it. And I, not being so vigilant as yon are, am going to fasten the I said, examining the lock of the cbfuu- ber door. I found, however, that it was broken, r.nd impossible to fabfen, and Annie laughed merrily, as 1 dragged, with uniuh exertion, a chest. containing books, before the door. What a time I hhall have getting that away in the she said I will help Ijinswered, brief- ly; for, disguise it as I would, I nervous, and a little frightened. The melancholy cry of the owl was the last thing I heard, as my senses gradually lost themselves in oblivion. What is It was Annie's voice, in a startled whisper, that awoke me. In an instant I was wide awake, and listening. A low, grating, sub- dued sound, evidently proceeding from fbe lower room Then a and steps, muffled, and almost inaudible. I could have screamed with terror, but it seemed to me as if I had lost my voice. Hush said Annie, tightly grafip ng my wrist.

Ihoir search was unavailing. no wounded man c mid be but a remark which Harry made bi.s re- turn. sLnitu-jiit to me. Wo i  to account for the meanness of the crime of which he stood convicted. An uncle of'his, a gentlenwn of con- siderable property, made his will iu fa- vor of a clergyman, who was inti- mate and. committed it to the reut of the family, to the custo- dy of the divine. However, not long before his. death, having altered his mii'id! with regard to the disposal of his wealth. lie made another will, in which he left the eleigyman only five hundred pounds, and bequeathed the bulk of his large- oroj.-city tc his nephew and Mr. Eyre. Soon after the old gentleman's deathr Mr.pEyrc. rummaging over his drawers. ouud tiii.- Lbt and perceiving the epac) of five hundred pounds in it for' the clergyman, without any hesitation or scruple of conscience, he put it into the fire, and took possession of the effect.'-, in consequence of his uncle be- ing supposed to die intestate. The clergyman coming to town BOOB- after, and inquiiing into the circum- stance? of his friend's death, asked: if he had made a will before he died. On answered by Mr-. Ejre the negative, the clergyman very coolly put his hand in his pocket, and pulled! out the forfiicr will, which bad been committed (o liis care, in which Mr. Eyre had biVjiipathed the whole of his to several thousand pounds. ciC'-pting a legacy of two hun- dred pounds to his nephew.

The sun neared the western horizon, and at length sunk to rest amid the gold and crimson clouds with all the magnificence of a monarch; then came the purple twilight, with its dusky shadows, its dew and its fragrance. I sat on the door step, where the 'long green grass grew -almost to my feet, watching the stars coaie out softly. one by one, and listening to the spirit tones of the whippoorwill as they came to ine from the dim recesses of the for- est Suddenly' a screech owl flitted past the house, and taking its station on the garden fence, began its shrill, qua- vering cry.

Many years ago, in the t-o called good old times a gentleman, having set foot for the first time in Ireland, re- paired to an hotel foi something to eat, and was accomodated with a roast fowl. He was proceeding to eat when hispl.iu divided with a sharp crack, and the wing, to which he had just helped him. self, flew up to" the ceiling. Soon after wards an excited waiter rushed into the room crying. he's safe, he's safe Who's safe inquired the bewildered traveler. Mister O'Musgrave, sir, said the waiter, in explanation; "the captain fired in the It thus became apparent to the gen- tleman that a duel had beed fought in the room beneath, and, without stopping to finish his repast, he ordered his lug- gage to be packed, and left Ireland im- mediately. A WILLIAMS College student, who went toPiltsiield on a the oth- er day, had occasion to get a check cashed at the bank, but thu cashier didn't know him and demanded identi- fication. Perplexed for a moment, he bethought, himself of the mark on his underclothing, and triumphantly unbut- toned his coat only to disclose in plain letters, on the band of his shirt, the name of his chum, who had lent him the garment for the occasion. A philosophic widow says that, in tho death of her she has one great knows where ho "Ir was remarked at a recent meeting' in Boston for the purpose of starting moral suasion temperance organiz- ation that the want of the day is anoth- er law than the existing prohibitory The.nced is for a law of individual self- control, tthich makes a man feel hin re- sponsibility to other men and to his God. When we have created that of self-respect we may trust a man anywhere. A POOR soldier, who, after three plications, succeeded in getting bounty, sent at once 810 to an who had loaned him that amount when he was in desperate need. A few d..f-t ago the uncle died, and by his will left the almost penniless soldier all his es- tate, valued at 6200.000, gmng ag- his reason fordiinirso thut he many lent money to iii.s relatives, and this onw alone h.id repaid him. Tins is- a gentleman's wav' of getting rid of rats: Put potash in. their holes and runs. The prior wretch- es get it on their t'ect, and over their fur, then thoy lick it, and don't like the taste of it; it burns them somewhat and the more they see of it life less they like it; so they dear out almost as soon as the application is made. To get rid of mice, the same pcr.sou uses tart.ir-emetic, mingled with any favor- ite food; they take it, take sick, and take their leave. AT a woman suffrage meeting in New York, last week, one of the female speakers proposed that the thirty-five thousand old maids in New England should go west and buy farms.
