When Mr. Faxon came back from his brief stroll, his presence, as he crossed the yard, was observed.  A whitO'haired old man, who had come to the open door and taken ^ up the hickory stick, turned back hastily, with «-few-hurried wordo and the aged  only a little moire, but it*s no better.

Mr. Faxon put tlie papers into the breaat pocket of his coat, came down the office stairs, an I stopped into the glittering^ purple-liDed phaeton, beside his wife.

" You seem to be. away all the timo lately. Take me with you."  "Notthis time,-Violet." And Violet Faxon's husband fell into a fit of abstraction, from which lie smai'testcliatter-failedta arouse him.. _ They came at last to the Faxon mansion, grand and simple, and fulfilling its promise of a beautiful inferior.  Amid the white lace and crimson silk of her chamber, Violet was brushing out her long, fair hair, when her husband paused in the doorway, and looked at her sharply. Then he came slowly across the room, and lifting the oval face in his hand, looked closely at the roseate check, pearly ear and curved lashes.  "What is it?" asked Violet, "a freckle?"  "No," he answered, smi'ing faintly and strolling across the chamber. "You looked like my sister then—that was all."  " Your sister, dear? You never told me aboht her," said Violet.  " No," he answered, and said no more.  Mr. Faxon bore no resemblance to his delicate patrician wife, A little less thirty, dark, strongly built, active, vigorous, he impressed one as a strong character.

He was up and away at daybreak the next morning. An early train bore him eastward, and nine o'clock found him landed it a little station called Sea-brook.  The dismal little building waa set in field of clover, around which a road wound away among the mounds of verdure.  After a Iglaiicc around, Mr. ¡Faxon took this road and walked slowly along. Tl e robins hopped across ^ the bobolinks sang in the trees overli The unassuming white clover among the grass perfumed tlie cool morning air.  He passed only a few houses, but he observed them attentively. They were all old and humble larmliouses. Ap-panntly I his property which had by the foreclósuré of a mortgage, fallen to Mr. Faxon, was not situated in a very rich or enterprising neighborhood.  Wbsn he had walked nearly a mMe, he came to a green ddbryard, among wide spread apple trees, with a well sweep among them, and a residence, though plain, mpré pretentious and (»mfbttable than tlio others.  There was a narrow, well-worn path among the short 'grass and bnttercu]» t6 the jpoipch, where a bitter sweei; twined its strong arms. In a corns, under the verdure, was an armchair, th a book on t^e seat, and a cane ly* ^ng across yt—a gnarled, twisted cane of hickory.that Mr. Faxon looked twice at. The book he saw was a Bible.  Tliepe was an old ladylwith Ca sweet, «ded face, and snowy cap strings, tied wdrr her double chhi, knitting at i window nearl>T. but his quie^ step had  woman drooled her knitting and rose up. with a paleness dropping over her face.  But, while Mr. Faxon hesitated on tile porch aga'n, both came to the door. Sad ,8 tartled faces they both had, but they were civil. Their greeting was kindly, as to a friend. " My name is Faxon," said the visitor. I-'» ^  " Wc know who you be. sir," said the old man—" we 'know who you be, tliough wo never seed ye before. Will you come in  Mr. Faxon stepped across the white hall-Qoor into the quaint, cool and comfortable sitting-room,  The rough blue paper, like ohintz, on the wa 1, some " honesty" and dried grasses in opaque white vases upon the high, narrow mantelpieee, unconsciously struck his eye, while he took a seat, his mind occupied with other thoughts.  We've been longexpectin' you, sir," said the old lady.  Her hands, crossed on the spotless gingham apron upon her lap, trembled a little, but the serenity of her manner was not°changed.  But the old man's eyes swum in tears. He rested both hands on the hickory stick I>etwee n his knees, as he sat in a comer, and bending his forehead upon them, partially hid his face.  "Yes, yes! but it comeasort o'sudden now," said the' old man.  Mr. Faxson sat in a speechless sympathy.  AAor ii little pause, old Mr. looked up, and met his eyes.  " Of course, it's all right, sir. We don't question your right to the place, but we've been sort of unfortunate. I think so—don't you, mother?"  The old lady lay back among the cushionsnof the dimity-isovered chiiir. She had a look of physical weaknejss Mr, Faxsi^^d^not observed before. "Her husband^loo^ed ather attentively. A sudden flush went over his thin face. . " It's not for myself I care—it's her!" he cried. Striking his cane violently upon the floor. " She helped earn this place, when she was' young. There was no kind o' work but what them hands yotJ see lyin' so weary now in her lap, sir, was put to. She was up cixrly an' late, always a-doin', a-doin' fur me and the children. God never made a better wife an' mother. An' now, sir, it's hard, it's hard, that she should bo turned out of her home in lier old age!"  "Hush, hush, Daniel!" said the old lady, softly. "The Lord will provide; and it's not long we have to stay in this world, you know."  " Will you tell me the history of the place, Mr. Derby?" asked Mr. Faxon. " How did you come to lose it ?'  " It was mortgaged, sir," said 111« old man at last, " to pay the boys' college bills. You see, we hadthree children— Selwyu, Roscoe and little Annie. Mother and I didn't have an cddication, but we SMd all along that our children sljould have; an' tiiey went to the dis-tric' school an' then the academy—an by-ahd-bye we fitted them off for college. Blight, smart boys they were—everybody said my boys had good parts though Roc was always a little wild. I think mother, there, loved him a little better for thaji. He was more trouble, an' she dune to him closer because others blamed him at times. Annie, his si>ter. was always a-pleadin', tbo, for Roc. He played truant, and he whipped the boys who tola on him; hti was al-  hSu Kn-noa in nnril. n.n' twice  it, mother?"  I never think of it," said Mrs. Derby, haking her head. "Perhaps— I don't know—we took the wrong course with Roo. He was restlciss an' active^ He was wild, but he waa lovin'—" Her voice broke.  "Mrs.Derby," said Mr. Faxon, "I find I know something of your story already. Your son, Roscoe Derby, who ran away at nineteen years old, is probably living, and it may come in my way to obtain some informatson of him for: you."  The old people had risen eagerly from their seats; but he went on, quickly: ■ " Meanwhile, be at no inconvenience regarding your stay here in your old home. Your right to occupy it is unquestioned in my mind, and let me assure you that you will never, during your lifetime be required to go hence. There is the mortgage"—he plaeedsome papers on the table—" the Derby place is your own."  He rose, putting them gently back as they pressed toward him, trying to express their gratitude.  " No—no thanks! Believe me you owe me nothing—nothing!"  He took his hat. The old man who was voiceless, wrung his band. Mr Faxon turned to Mrs. Derby, and taking her soft wrinkled fingers in his strong pahn, bent low and kissed ihem. Then he turned toward the door, but in a moment he had come l>ack.'  " Mother^father!" hb said, " I cannot go, for I know you have forgiven me!"  And the next instant the strong man waa kneeling with his head on his mother's knee.  •i After long years, mother," he sai^, as she stroked his temples with fond fingers. I am but twenty-eight years old, but sorrow for my early faults has brought some gray hairs about my .temples."  Ani1_ irnn ora .«tAf .'U'a . t^.».^....^«.^-^  smile.  Yes, ^ am, dear father. Five years ago I had the good fortune to gain tho good-will of one of the wealthiest American shipping merchants then in London. He gave me a good position, and I decided to return home with him, and served faithfVilly in his employ, until just before his death, when, having formed an engagement with his only daughter, he gave his consent to our marriage, with the proviso that I would take his name and carry on his in^-eiests exactly as they had been. To this I consented, for in spite of settled habits and ideas, I felt an alien and alone; but mother I have a good wife and the best of sons—a little fellow two years old, named Derby. Docs that please you?"  A hi indeed! What loving old woman is not pleased with her grandchild? Soon tho house was graced by the presence of Violet Faxon and tlic lovely boy, whom grandfather could not praise enough and grandmother coi\ld not fondle enough; yet it was sweeter, perhaps, to Roscoe Faxon to hear liis mother's voice whisper:  " I like your wife; and do you know, dear,I think she is very like Annie?"

Ilii» recent lecture on the possibility of ;;||^tellibg earthquakes, Professor Biklisieri expressed the belief that by of seismographio stations, tele-gnyhicaUy coBBCcted, for rggiatcr,  andsjreporting preliminary earth trem-bliiigs, it would be possible to foretell earthquakes jtist as tempests] are now lotetold, and to issue warnings to thrmtened districts about three days in advance. He did not expect to live to see such a system in operation, but he ho^ and in a measure expected that pp^tferity would be benefited by its uni-veml and permanent establishment.  It has been officially decided that a r<»iItoad company or steamboat corpora-tic^ has nojright to detain or imprison a passenger for refusing or neglecting to pay his fare. Tho Metropolitan Elevated Raihroad company detained a pas-!r,'because at the end of his journey lie ftad lost his ticket and had tried to force himself past the gate. The court awttrded him $100 damages. A Harvard student, lust summer, going to Newport bought a through ticket to New York for a dollar, the fare to Newport being $1.60. The officers of the boat kept him on board by force at Newport until he had paid the extra sixty cents. The court adjudged him $75 damages for falde imprisonment. Another pa<>sen-gcr lost his ticket during the night, and waa not »allowed to depart next morning until he had left his watch in pawn for his ticket. The court gave him $50.  Last January a California fruit dealer tookiZOO fresh lemons fresh from the tree and buried them in the ground, to see how they would keep. Four months after he dug them up and found ;hem in perfect preservation, as sound and fresh and nice as the day they were buried. Every one knows how potatoes keep when properly covered by earth Apples would doubtless do equally well; and possibly the same method may answer for grapes and other more perishable fruit. It would not cost much to V^lglious. ' " ' '  The Me dioeU 2ime$ and OazeUc men lions the case of a young man who, while traveling from Paris to Lyons, lit match by scratching it with his thumb nail, and a piece of the incandescent phosphorus penetrated under the nail and made a slight burn, to which ho paid no attention. But after an hour the pain became intense, the thumb swelled, then the hand, and next the forearm, lie was obliged to alight at station on the journey and send for a medical man, who declared that imme • diate amputation of the arm was necessary. The patient insisted on postponing the operation for a few hours until the arrival of his father, for whom he had telegraphed.' Before.;the latter, however, could reach his son, it was too late;'^ the poisonous matter had gained tlie arm, then the^shoulder, and any operation becamc impossible. He died in great agony in only twenty-seven hours after the burn. The case shows the danger, of handling phos-phonis in tho manner described.  Ariiflelal lee.  The artificial manufacture of ice was begun at Augusta, Georgia, in June last, by a process -which experience, has proved to be both efficient and economical. This process'is rcpletn with Interesting details, but may be described in general terms as follows :  In the first place, the water for making the ice is obtained from a well over forty feet deep, and is pumped up by a largo pomp into a cooler. Here the water is cooled by means of pipes nm-ning through the cooler, greatly reduced in temperature, and after filtration, is oonducted downVmto cans thirty inches long and twelve square. These can«, 480 in number, all fit into a large tank, through which pipes containing freezing  Swallows Eating Bees.  The following letter appears in the columns ol a Schleswig-Holstein api-cultural journal: The question whether swallows are enemies to bees is general ly met by a decided negative. But my experiences of the present year con  not disturbed her.  He hid put bii hand to the knot^er; bt t-)ok, it down ««aia aa he oanght nmoiÚú^jMiiuÉ. Etaloodthere  ways puttin' his bones in peril, an' twice he was halfdrowned—yet, in spite ol all, he was ready for college when Selwyn was, though Selwyn was steady as clock. Mother an' I had been scrapin' together for years, and at last we fitted them off.  " We went on denyin' ourselves, for it was just the one hope of our lives to have the boys graduate with all the honors; an' time went on, but many of the crops failed, and there came disappointment here and dissapointment there, an' failing to get together the money the boys sent for—especially Roc —we mortgaged the farm for five hun-" dred dollars.  " They were nearly through, you see, an' mother and Annie thought that Selwyn might be principal of the acad? emy or something when he came home, an' Roc would bfl a, lawyer, 'cause he, could argufy an' speak so smart in public, an'the money would be paid back easy  ," But from time to time there came rumors I didn't like, as to how Roscoe was up to his olu rild ways, and atlas it came like a thunderbolt—Roo was suspended and had run away to foreign parts. Well, I pass over that, sir;« I tried not to be too hard on the hoj. Then Selwyn came home. He had graduated well, but he had. a cough, He didn't complainfbut ho was thin an' pale, an' soon mother an' 1 saw that thé sbn we had meant to rely on was an invalid upon our hands. Tha thought sttuok me dumb. But mother was all energy. We traveled here iHth him, we travélediherà. We saw all the noted dootorir East and West.

One day, when the nests were full of good-sized young ones, whose never-ceasing hunger the parent birds were doing their best to satisfy, the idea struck me to examine the contents of one of their stomachs It contained nothing but beas ! That my friendship for my long-honored guests somewhat cooled alter this is hardly to be wondered at, as I am enthusiastic bee-master. On another occasion, then last summer. I saw the swallows waging war against the bees with a ferocity almost incredible. In the dull cold weather just then prevailing there were scarcely any insects in the air, and I noticed how the swallows hoyered about by dozens close to the hiVes, and dashed upon the bees as they returned home. So eager were they in the pursuit, that stone-throwin g,shoot-ing, eto., did not deter them in the least Suddenly, however, a change oanie o'er the scene, for at the first glimpse of jsun shine the bees in their turn became the a«gressor8,and attacked the swjillowsso savagely that the latter flew away uttering cries of pain, and not unfrequenf fell to the ground with six or eight bees clinging fast to them, alter turning endless somersaults ih the air. in their en-deaVors to shake off their tormentors.  Statistics of Flogging. A parliamentary return lias jusl been issued giving particulars as to the in-fliction^f corporal punishment in the navy and army during the ten years ended December 31, 1878. In each case the offense is stated. It''appears that in 18G0 corporal punisl^ent was awarded toOi men in the navy, the total number ol lashes infiipted being 2,301. In 1870, >6 men received in the aggregate gM iashes, and in 1871 61 mop r Jcoivcd  mixture run. This freezing mixture is composed chiefly of ammonia, and is prepared in peculiar retorts by a special process. Tlie mixture ^hich rais through these pipes,, and^enders them so intensely cold as to freeze the water in close proximity, does not como in contact with the water, and cannot do o. Tho pipes are tight and durable and the joints are strongly made, with a peculiar patent, prevpting the escape  01 gas at all. After -the waCer in the cans is frozen, these cans are lifted out and allowed to stand on end for ten minutes, when they are slowly withdrawn, leaving each one a pure, solid block of ice of twelve pounds.  Besides the company controlling the above process, and which acted as a valuable conservator to the trade last year, Augusta has another concern engaged in artificial ice manufacture,' which is turning out the crystal blocks at the rato of twelve tons per day. Therefore the people of that city are not assailed with fears regarding an ice famine, and the cry of the ice man has no dominion over tliem.  At other points South, notably New Orleans, the manufacture of "mock ice " has received considerable attention, and a certain brewery .tn the .Crescent city has recently introduced a novel ap* paratus for the manufacture of ice water, which comprehends t he essential principles of ice-making machinery. The tank in which the water is cooled contains 3,000 feet of one-inch pipe, in which pure ammonical gas, condensed by compression into a liquid, is admitted. The latent heat in the water transforms it into a vapor, when it absorbs the heat hi the water, and is drawn from the pipes by pumps, and is again compressed Into the condensing pipes* From the condensing pipes it is again admitted into the pipes in the cooling JNitnk, where, it aeain becomes a.vannr. ty-four degrees Fahrenheit. One hun. dred and twenty-six pounds of ammonical gas is used in charging the apparatus, and this amount will last indefinitely.  But there is especial congratulation in the fact that Northern cities, as well as their Southern sisters, are ai^itating the question of artificial ice. Philadelphia and San Francisco have already been moving in this direction, and an ice-making machine is being operated in New York, with very successful result, it is claimed. —Commercial Bulletin.  A Singular Disaster.  The astonishing accident to the steamer Boliemian, which took place at Montreal recently, adds still another calamity to the list of marine mishaps which of late has already heen eo extended . The Bohemian left her do^ik ,a few moments before the accident, and with aboutfifty passengers and an assorted cargo, being bound for the Upper St. Lawrence, passed into canal lock No.  2 from the Lachinc canal basin. She was going at half speed at this time, but, to the amazement and terror of all beholders she was seen to put on full steam, and to dash straight at the opposite gate. Now, this gatp was the sole barrier between the Bohemian and a mass of water thirteen feet higher than that on which she floated, a mile in length, and several hundred feet in widtli.  The efiect of the impact of the Bohemian was instantaneous. The gates were crushed like so much brittle glass, and the flood, in a Niagara torrent poured in, carrying everything Ictore  Experience of a CenMS Man.  Owen Browne, a census enumeratori who is now resting on his laurels, gave a NewJYork Herald reporter recently a brief history of his experience. His district was No. 590, between Fifth and I^xington avenues and Eightieth and Eighty-fourth streets, which he found to contain a population of a,«7l. Ho began his task every morning at eight o'clock and ended it generally at six, but sometimes sevcin fti llii evening, taking a lunch and siesta at noon. He is a tall, dark, wiry, determined sort of man, of about thirty-five, who. as ho says himself, started out with his mind made up to be as polite as possible under all circumstances, but resolved to stand "noflhcnmi^anB " if tlift law was not  1,810'ashes. Of late years flogging in the lavy has greatly diminished. In 1876 light men received 312 lashes; in 1877,^ix'men received 204 lashes; and \n ISÏ, seven men received 228 lashes Duriig the same period.tbere have been 38 caes of flogging in the army, exclu sive if cases in which military prisoners kve been flogged in prison. Of thes^ases two occurred in 1869, two in 1873 and 34 in 1878.

" When I'd ask a lady," said he; " for her age, she might say, ♦ is it necessary to give the exact figures P' and I'd answer, 'no, ma'am; I can't compel you, and I must only draw my^ own conclusions.' An American lady of the middle class, well-dressed and lively, gave me her age one day as thirty-seven, but when she came to tell me her son's ago WBS twenty-six, I said, • Madam, you must have made a mistake.' 'Oh, then,' said she. a little put out, but very cheerful, 'makeit forty-seven; it will be all the same in a hundred years.' That was a class of ladies I used to like to meet with, but some of them would get their backs up if .1 doubted their word and give me a look as good as a subpena. Another lady gave me her daughter's age as twenty-one, and as I was leaving the daughter called me back, and said she wanted that made nineteen, as she was afraid the people next door might see the entry twenty-one in my book and sneer at her. Young ladies, I found« seldom knew their own ages, and would always call their mothers and say, Mamma,, what a' e ought I to be now?' and the mamma, I used to notice, always had to think awhile before she flredoff an answer."  The census man then went on to relate how a lady refused him admission to her house three times in succession, and would only speak to him from an upper window, telling him that her husband told her to give no countenance to book agents, insurance agents, lightning rod men and such. She believed he was one ol the^e. At last he grew impatient and somewhat angry, and  Either.

The water drove luriouily on, submerging wharfs, sinking many small vessels, engulfing numbers of laborers, and cprrying terror and ruin in every direction. It is said that the deluge of water set the huge ocean steamships in the harbor of Montreal dancing like so many cockleshells. As for the Bohemian, she sank in four minutes from the time she struck the gate. But o Jving, as one dispatch says, " to the admirable presence of mind of her officers." the passengers were restrained from jumping overboard, and with the help of the horbor police, all were saved.  One cannot but regret in considering this statement that tho adujirable presence of mind of the Bohemian's officers was not exhibited before thi? surprising accident instead of afterward. To dash dcliberHtely at such an object as a canal gate that held back a vast body of water, or, in other words, short of blowing the steamboat up outright, to do the most madly perilous and destructive thing that imagination could conceive of, is an act to which we can rscall no par-illel. Nor was tlie danger or injury confined to the Bohemian alone. When the water rushed forward on its errand of destruction the effect was also.to destroy wbat it left behind.

He was around next day, and the i reception he met with will be something he thinks that he can never possibly forget. Tho lady, he says, was in full dress, and welcomed him inside with profuse apologies, and her hospitality was so pressing that at the rate of two cents a name ho believed his earnings tliat day hardly exceeded twelve cents.  In his district Browne found Americans, Irish, English, Scotch, Welsh, Fienchi Swedci, Canadians, negroes and one Russian, lie had more annoyances from young married women than from any other class, as on account of their babies, they always Wiinted him to call at their own convenience. He reasoned with one of these young women by saying that if he had to call two, three or four times at every place there was a baby the census wuuld not be taken till Christmas, and the young woman saw the point and surrendered. One day, Browne, who was also engaged in tak-ing the census of 1873, called at a dwelling and met the housekeeper, who told him she did not think she was bound to give him the information he wanted.  ' T^hy," said he, "I took the census of this house before." " Oh, well, that will do," said she; " )UBt lefei' back to your  Very death.

" Another thing," continued the census man, "made an amusing experience. In nineteen cases out of twenty the men would be absent at business when I called, and I had to depend on the women for all my information. It was necessary to ask the women what business their husbands followed, and though many were never slow about telling the real truth others would hesitate and try to think of something more dignified than the actual calling. A bartender would be ' in the wine busi nees,' a driver of a beer wagon ' in the brewery business,' a bricklayer * in the building business.'and clerks 'in-the dry goods' and ' in the grocery business.' One colored woman was crazy to have all her eight children «took in the census.' 'Come up here, Jemima; come up here, Lukie; come lip h^re, Lappy,' she cried, until she had the whole crowd around."  "Well, on the whole," asked the[reporter, " was the work severe?'?  " I did not feel so," answered the census man, "because perhaps I wmt methodically to work. I began atjhc beginning and made it a point to finish with every house in a row as far as possible.

A recent arrival at tho Zoological society's gardens in Regait's Park deserves special notice, apart from the fact thatitisthfe first of its species _known:_. to have been brought to England. It is a snake, called the echis carinata, about. a foot and a half long, and of a dingy gray. Yet, although in appearance neither interesting nor formidable, it is the deadliest of created things. Tbis detestable little worm, which, looking at it, the spectator might make bold to say he could imitate very passably in cork and putty, is. nevertheless, one of the miracles and masterpieces of nature, for it is death itself, and carries in its . tiny head the secret of destroying life with the sudden rapidity of lightning and the concentrated . agony of-a!! poisons. The cchis comes to us from India, where it is tolerably common.. being found in nearly every part of the peninsula, and feared wherever found as tho incarnation of instant and terri- ^ ble destruetionv-FortunatoLy,4iowiLver,_ for man, it is not, like the cobra and the korait, a house-frcquenthig snake; for its tiny size would give it a terrible ad-vantage over human beings who live crowded together, as the natives of India do. in small darkened rooms, while lis aggressive habits would make it infinitely more fatal to life than its dreaded ' this king uf the aspsi  tb» worlds beeanie be  rÄ-Ä 1 i», v-\ ^'-ry. -,  _____mentb  Mt .»f Ä^towiding ptö^ tidning fow or five fianlllcs, in my dis-- - - f-trict, «nd the,-m<^|ôritj-were-pri«ate  dtèlUngi."

A stroke with a whip will cut it in two, or a clodot earth disable it; but such is its malig- -nity that it will invito attack by every device at its command, staking its own-life on the mere chance of its adversary coming within the little circle of ite power. At mosti the radius of this ciirc'.c is twelve inches, but within it, at any point, lies certain death, and, on the bare hope of hand or foot trespassing within its reach, the echis throw* its body into a figurc-ol-cight coil, and, attracting attention by rubbing its loops together, which from the roughness of the rcales—hence the epithet carinatar-makes a rustling hissing sound, erecta its head in the center and awaits nUiusk. No one having once attacked this terrible worm can ever forget itstrncnlent aspect when t^us aroused, its eagerly aggressive air, its restless coils, which: in constant motion one over the other, and rustling ominously all the while, stealthily but surely bring it nearer and nearer to the object of its fury; the eye, malignifint even beyond thoij^e of othei viperi, and then the inconceivable rapidity of its stroke.
