He turned t,be conversation into other channels, and did not once attempt to pump me any further. We got to Grafton at 10 :50, and to my great surprise, he announced that he . was to stop in the town on business* ior a few days. I had not asked his name or avocation, while he knew everything about me.  We went to the hotel, had dinner, and then I secured a livery team and drove out, getting through with my business  = »K ♦ T u w X I- « laid me down \7ithin abouta rodofa  oí ""ÏÏÂÏ ^ ience^hich ran along on one Bide of an  prMs east.

"Nice weather?" " Splendid, indeed." > " Cirops growing finely." 1' Yei-^jildn't do better," I was sitting in a car on a Wisconsin milroad, one day,., years ago, when a gbod-looking, pleasant-spoken man Cixme along, stopped at my seat, and the above conversation took place, the latter^ rartofitafter I had given him part of my seat. .  Now, I am regarded as a social man. I like a joke; more so then than now. On entering a railroad car, I always looked about for a talkative man, and then I got as close to him as possible* and drained him dry, if the journey was long enough.  And I want to state one thing more. Left ah orphan before I could realize the sad event which made me one, I got kicked here and cuflFed there, and grew up between folks, as they say. I ought to have had at the time of which T write, a pretty thorough knowledge of human nature, and have been enabled to read evil in a roan's face if he intended me evil. Itlid not pride myself át being overkecn tr sharp, but the knocking around among strangers ought to have given any one a good experience-  Well, the stranger and I fell into an easy strain of conversation as we rode together, nnd in ten minutes I began to enjoy iiis company. He was a well-made fellow, finely dressed and wore a fine watch and a simon pure diamond ring. I never saw a man who could talk so easy and so pleasantly. It seemed that he had but to open his mouth and thé words fell right out.  I had travek d in the South, sobad he. I had heard the roar ol the Pacific, he , ihëw-àll about it. I had been up in a ' galloon, down in a mine, been blown  We had luncli together, and iviié^we shook hands-and^ parted, I had no idea of ever meeting him again than 1 had o knowing youi In ftust, he told me that he should sail fcr England within a week or ten days, and should notlretum to America. At parting he gave me his card. It was a modest piece of pasteboard, and bore the i^me lof «T'o rge Raieigh," in old English script.  Everything at the office went on as usual, and the thirteenth came at length. Law & Law:_had_arranged with me to go down with the money, and I looked upon it as a business of no i^eeial importance.  "We know you are all right," remarked the senior partner, atr*'I was about to go " but I want to give you a word of warning, nevertheless. Don't take any strangers into yoi^r confidence until you have Jiassed out the money, and look out who sits next to you."  It was something^^ fpr  caution me, ànd I could not but wonder at it; but in the bustle of going al}oard the train I forgot what he had said. Ordinary prudence had induced me to piace the money, which was all in bank bills and divided into three packages, under my shirt and next to my skin, where the deft hand of a pickpocket could not reach it.  Interested in a newspaper, time flew by as the train flew west, wd at lengtl^ the hoarse Voice of the brakeman warned me that I had reached Grafton, liud leaped down and was rnaki^ thelive^ stable when I heard afamitìar voice, and looked up to see Raleigh. He was seated in a bug^, and had seemingly waited for me to come in.  ''i)pn*t exj^Mss gan, ^ i stoppied at the wheel. "Idid intendi Jictgi^:!^^ X changed my mindi a)tid like this section so well that I am going out tn.day tp look at a farm with a view of purchasing-—come, ride up to the hoteL"  We rode up. ordered lunch, and while we were discussing yet, Mr. Raleigh discovered that the farm he was going to see was just beyond that of old Grip's.  How fortunate ! I could ride out with him, see the farm, return in his company, and he was greatly pleased. ,  I was also pleased. If any one liad told me as we got into the buggy that George Raleigft meant to return will» my money in his pocket and my blood upon his iiands, I éhould have believed him a lunatic. And yet George Raleigh had planned to do that very thing.  It was a lovely oay in June, and the cool breeze and the sight of meado'vrs and green groves made my heart grow larger. My companion was very ta ka-tive but he didn't even hint at my errand. He talked as far away as he could.  up, smashed up and repaired again and again; my new friend had experienced ali these things and was wishing for so|nething of a more startling nature. We agreed on politics, and I had never met such a railroad companion.'in  Did you ever meet a man. who, though a stranger to yog ten minutea before.  1  J^elva,  I  R  S  nnd  V  could wrest from you jour secrets which you had 8wori tp„ yourself not to reveal? Well, he was such a man. It wns not long beiorc he commenced asking Questions. He did not seem trying to quiz or draw me out, but he asked me questions in such a sly, roundabout way, that before I knew it I was giving him my history.  I.was at time just on the point of being admitted to th<5 bar of Wisconsin as a student ot Law & Law, oí Briefville. The firm were old lawyers with a lucrative practice, «nd it had been talked over that in about a month I should be the " Co." of the firm. A year before, a farmer named Preston, downabou|¡fpur miles from Grafton, died, and hi? matters had been put into the hands of Law & Law for settlement; Preston had died rich. He bad money in bank, i^lroad stock, moftgWjps, etc » and everything was settled up^to the jatísfMlioniif- thie relict áfid fatherless.  About a veer before his death, being pinehed for money, and not wishing to seU anything at a sacrifice, Preston had given a mortgage on his own ¿un» for $3,000c While ti^e papers read " for one year from date," there was a verbal agreement that it should be lifted any day that Pri»ton desired. A mionth after, when, having the funds to olear ofi* the paper, ,the "old money l^a^" hold in» it refused to disehtaf^, wishing to secwe his interest for a year.  I w'as onmy way to learn the date of expiration. A lire among our office paper» had destroyed the memoranda, and I must go down and get t|ie date i from old S^i^ ^ho lived )M»nt|i o^6raf-ton, about^ve. milM.?!^© stager dumped all of this oirt of mej^ aboi  íin ríM.^TT--------3»-1 teB-n»ittUte8,-and^et I never once aus-  I^SIÍsÍS^wÍS^nS ™ receiving any informa.  I am not positive," I added, **but I  'pri^ lu^^l^^ ti^l I«/  should have offered you this before.  He drew from his pocket a small flask of wine and handedjt to me. Now, I was temperate in regard to drinks. In fact I detested the ^ight and smell of anything intoxicating.* But I Lad not the moral courage to tell him so, and Laiid back the flask undisturbed.

He called my attention to the woods on the left as he received^ back the flask, and wiien I looked around again he was just removing it from his mouth, as if he had drank hearty.  In about five minutes I began to feel queer. The fences along the road seemed to grow higher and the trees to grow larger; something camc to my ears that the rattle of the buggy sounded a long way off.  How strange! Why, 1 believe I am going to be sick!" t exclaimed, hold-ng on to the seat with all my might.  "You do look strange,' he replied, a snaky smile stealing over his lace; * shouldnlt wonder ii it was apoplexy."  I did not suspect the game he had played. His words were like an echo, and his fe-e seemed twice es large as it was. My head bi^n to spin aM^ m^^ brain began to s^p and ci»ck,and  asw greatly-frightened.----------  You_ we badly off," h^ continued, looking into my face. " I wi.l drive as fa«t as possible and get a.doctor."  My tongue was so heavy-.tbat I could not reply. I clutched the seat, shut my eyes, and he put his horae at tlie b^t pace. We met a farinetV team, and can i;^member that one of the occupants of the wagon called out to know waat ailed that man. Raleigh did not repl^, but urjg^ his horse forward.

Now I began to realize my situation. His face looked natural-again, and the load was off my tongue. I also felt that I move my fingei» a little.  "George Raleigh! are you going to rob mef" I asked, finding my voice at last.  •l-WCell,-8om« folk» might call it ^robbing,'but we dress up the term a little by calling it the only correct financial way of equalizing the. floating currency, so that each one is provided for, ard no one left out."  You shan't have the money. I will die first!" I yelled, rising a little.  Ah, Ï see-^rdn't take quite enough," he coolly remarked. " Well, I have provided for this."  He wMifc tothe buggy, procured ropes and a gag, and kneeled down teside me. I had but little strength yet, and he conquered me in a moment. Lying on my right side, lookine toward the fence, he tied my hands behind me and then forced the ga^ into my mouth. . i  • ' There now ! You see yciu are nicely^ fixed up, and all because you acted like a fool, instekd of a sensible young law'-yer sooti to,iîe admitted to the bar."  White he was speaking—indéed^hile he was tying me, I had caught sight of tlj^'white face of a little girl looking at tfs from between the rails of the fence. I could see her great blue eyes and knew^ that she was frightened. There were red stains around her mouth and on the little ¡hand resting on the rail, ant* t knew that she .was some farmer's child searching for strawberries. -1 couid^not^ warn her ot her danger, and I feared that she would be seen or heard. While Itelelglr airas  winked at the little girl as hard as I could, hoping that would move away. But she did not go. "  Well, now for ttie money!" said Raleigh, and he began searching my pockets. He went from one to the other, removing all the articles, felt down my bootleg, and then finally passed his hand over my bosom and found the money.  Ha! here it is!" heexclmmed. draw-ng out two packages. " I don't hardly believe old Grip will see any of this today."  He sat down near my head, undid the packages, and was cool enough to go at it to count the money. As he comme ced ttio little girl wavjed her hand at me. My heart went thumping, for I expected that she woiild utter a word or shout, but she sank down from sight, and I caught a gleam from her frock as she passed through the, grass.  You see my young ifriend," remarked Raleigh, as ho drew off one of his boots and deposited some of the bills in it, " there's n©thingiike iransacting_imsi?r neas as it should be transacted. Soin.e  "Oh, excuse me !" he exclaimed, after we had passed a mile beyond the village . . . .  but it s only the apprentices who dp such work. All the real gentlemen of our calling do business as'^ gentlemen should."  He drew off the other boot, and placed some "fifties" and "twenties" in it, and then continued:  all planned out how to  CURRENT NOTES.

Thus it is that they are hurrying up the completion of the line,  Two hundred years ago the shaft of tbelurquoise mine-in Chalchuti moun-  Swandered off after-strawberries.-and i«td.ibrtunatelyforme, witnessed part  ried back to her father and told him  Understanding the situation he and his jmen had moved around so m to secure anadvantage, and Baîeii^s-cap-~ lure was the result  ; When the rascal found his sehse? hé was terribly taken back, aud cursed enough fot a whole ï'ianders army. We took him back to Gmfton, and when |I saw him again he was on his way to AUe penitentiary to serve a sentence of ^fteen years.  The mortgage was duly lifted, ;and tUe^gift which Law & Law sent Katy Grey kept her in dresses for many a  'L Affection for . Musical insfniments.  It is curious liow atti^hed people become to their pianofortes, or in fact to any musical instrument they have long had in possession. The thing very soon becomes XQore than a mere insentient piece of matter; it is a companion, a friend, and the longer it is J^ Stronger becomes the aWachment. This feeling may arise from the fact that the instrument was the gift oi a very dear friend^ a father, or motherrot^ favorite brother, or sister; or it may arise from the associations that _ have grown up and clustered like flowers around it; for when time has separated our loved ones fçomus by distance or death, the pianoforte, or the violin, or the flute, around which they were wont to gather at evening, is the link betjween the past and the present, the tali^ajt jthat^ conjurés up forgotten scenes, recalls the ab-seiitfriendi tmdevenHctitbe saidrwith xevererice, raise the dead.^ But ie tBe cause of the feeling what it may, the feeling itself is indisputable.  We. once knew a family that was suddenly reduced fixjm affluence to want. One by one their household effects, had to be sacrificed to keep away tiie rejnaorseless demon, hunger. Among the Bousehold gods Was a pianoforte, the ^ft of the father to his elder daughter, a fair and gentle creature.  and jewels without a murmur, and held on to the nianforte to the last. She was nn exceptionably good performer, and many a pang ol wounded pride at the neglect of summer friends was soothed away,Tio""deubt, by the music she could extract from the instrument. But at last the f;^l day arrived^ she could keep the pianoforte no longer; it "was a questionof bread or no bread. The poor girl mourned over the loss of her pianoforte as si^e would have mourned over the loss of a bosom friend. Her mirth-fulness went with it, though she never complained, yet for a]long time aiter a sudden pallor of the cheek whenever the subject was referred to, betrayed how much of a WQund had been made at her heart.  Quite as strong attachments are known to be entertained by professional musicians for their instrumeuts. An incident related to the writer by a member of a traveling opera company exemplifies this fact. One of the violinists attached tQ%e troupe, while running ot^ day with^ the narrator foTcatoh a trafic  badly affected when opening my eyes. I had nettled into a sortoi dumb stupor, th^ brainio liennmbedthat I bad to say to^self: **ThiB is a tree, that is ft stumpf etc.," before I ^xmld make sore tlwt X wa« not wrong. Half mile down tbe rpAd w» .«trnok the foECtl. and Raleigh tuni^ tbe hwKinto ft blUwl witil Iwdfar^lwck  I have it  deal with you as soon as I get this money disposed of around my person. I shall lay you on your back and pour the balance of the wine down your throat. There's enough of it to make you sleep until to-m )rroW night, and by that time I shall be hundreds of miles away. As soon as I see the drug take effect, I shall untie your^ hands and remove the gag. When you come out of your sleep-^if you ever do—^you had betr ter crawl to the road, where you will most likely meet some traveler, soon. I want to use the horse and buggy, otherwise I would leave them for you."  How coolly he talked- He treated the matter as if it were a regular transaction in which I fully acquiesced. Hehadime a fast prisoner, and I felt that he could do just as he pleased^ While I was thinking, I saw the little wliite face ap-peai between tha rails agaiurbul in a moment it faded away and its place was taken by the sunburnt phiz of afarmer^ He looked from i;ac to Raleigh and back again, and I winked at him in a Way which he readily understood . His face disappeu^, and I felt that I should be saved.  " No,'old Grip woh't get his tin toi -day,i?-musedllaleigh,-8toring-away-tihe bills in his pockets.

Observing that he trembled violently as he picked the case u \ his companion asked what was the matter. " Oh!" he exclaimed, with genuine anxiety, V I'm afraid it's broken!" It was a long time afterward before he summoned courage to open the case and examine the violin, and his delight at finding it uniniured  was almprt ludicrous. Th same man some weeks later, while visiting Wat-kins' Glen, N. Y., slipped and fell on the edge ol a'precipice. Although he made, a vei7 narrow escape from a frightful death, his composure was not in the least disturbed.

Mrs. Lillie Devereux Blake wants policewomen to be employed at the police stations in New York, as they are in Saxony.

At an; auction sale of books in New .York Bradford's collectionof the "Law® and Acts of the General Assembly ior Their Majesties Province of New York" (1694), being "the first book printed in New York and the first collection of the Laws of New York," brou^t $1,600, lor which sum it was bought by the New York State library. This is the largest price paid for a single Volume in a long while. A newspaper in two volumes, the Pennsylvania Omette (1728-1730), printed by Franklin & Keimer, and the first newspaper printed by them, brought $560, and went to Yale college.

A late number of the ScierUific American supplement illustrates a device that is still in advance of the airbrake if it works as well in piactice as^ it looks on paper. It is an clectr j,cal airbrake, the generator being on the locomotive. The plans provides for an attachment to the bell rope so that any passenger, by pulling the rope, can instantly apply the electric brake, at the moment he warns the ènginecr. The Detroit JVe« Press suggestiTlWtby-andï' bye we will have electric brakes on the. trajn, an electric bell on the locomotive, an electric head-light in front, making the track as light as day, electric candles in each car, and perhaps an electric ngine as motive power.  At the French mint are shown now specimens of a coin which will be sought for eagerly by numismatists of the future. These are fiye-franc pieces struck during the reign of the Commune. At first sight they have all the appearance of coins of like value under the empire ; but,, there is a difference, and it thus occurred: When the Communists began to run short of cash they Wanted to coin some new-fashioned money, but were informed that no workmen competent for the task could pos?ibIy be. got. Consequently they wer compelled to go on using Napoleon s dies.^ Camelinat. however, who was then master of tbe mint, bethought him of a slight innovation, jLidejof-tlie five-irane piecesTsfISapHëoï are three emblems, one of which is  director of the mmt.

About 1,200,000 francs of these coins were struck, but had hardly been complete when the troops entered Paris, and nearly all these coins were dispatched to be melted and recast.  Idolfttryvthe missionaries report^ is on the declineííi^éstern Africa, where the head priest of one large district h^ e.ii-braced the Christian faith.  The great fire jh Chicago in 1871 left only one church standing in that city. There are now, according to a recent enumeration, 213 churches there.  The highest salary in the Holston conference (Methodist Episcopal church South) last year was $1,200; the lowest seventy-five cents ^d a deer skin.  There are 3,674 Congregational ihurehes in-the-United Statcs^ whose enevolent contributions last year were $1,098,691.43, and whose home ejcperidi-tures were $3,694,328.81.  An evangelical paper states that there are nearly two thousand more clergymen in this country than thérrare pulpits, and it advises tbe young oaen to shovel and hoe rather than b.e ministers.  The Baptists-have in-Great Britain and Ireland 3,451 churches, 1,876 ministers, 276,348 members, and 399,317 scholars in the Sunday-schools: They have ten colleges, employing twenty-ven tutors and professors. The Presbyterian Banner rejoices that pastoral visitation, "Virhich has been in many places for years one of the Igst arts, is giving evidence of now life.

Cmhman, in Meridtn Reeordi  iMlSCEtUNEoifC  Governor Colquitt, of Georgia, is described as a forking Christian—a man who carries Bis religion into his daily life. It is said that probably no man in Georgia gives as much toward the support of church and charity as does Mr. Colquitt.  It is &n admitted fact that thousands of men, women and children on Manhattan Island are living outside of all parochial bounds, and "never enter any of the regular churches.

Ex-Govcrnor Farwell, formerly ci Wisconsin, now a resident of Grand City, in Worth county, some time since instituted a series of temperance meetings, and as a result the taxes have been reduced one-third.

She hesitated and looked back as though she thought it would be wise to go back a Mock and go around the mud, but finally concluded to go through it. Putting her packages under her arms, and holding the um-breliii firmly, she slepptjd both fdtil Into the clay. That was easy enough, but when she undertook to remove one foot the rubber shoe came off. She began to look mad then, but she was not half as mad as she got to be in a couple of minutes. She tried to get her loot back into ho rubber as it stuck in the mud,,and came near tipping over tx-ying to balance on one foot, but by jabbipg her umbrella into the mud slie saved herself from sitting down sidewajs. Then she got both feet into her overshoes and tried to step. She couldn't rescue those shoes to save her. Then she loolicd around to see if anybody was looking. She bent over and took hold of one oJ •he rubbers witli her hand and finally coaxed it to come along with her foot, but while she was doing that one of her packages fell out fron^,under her arm behind. ,, She tried Wturn around to pick it up, but her rubbers tod çtgain become fastened in the yielding clay, and they would not move.
