A no in a wide awake and in my right mind it is no delusion a no part of my waking visions. But who could have supposed that old Thomas Mortimer whom i Haven to seen since i was a boy of sixteen and Iyo ked Hin out would die and leave me All his Money ?

All those years of patient waiting were to be bridged Over by the strange old misers by quest he might claim Edith now. How full of heart Shine were the weeks that flitted Over the head of the accepted lovers brightened by Edith a smile made Beau till by the soft radiance of Edith a love. There was one alloying Shadow the most imperceptible Tonch of distrust and suspicion with which Stern old or. Wyllis regarded his future son in Law.

And now As the deed of contend since is not made out yet i done to suppose your lawyer need to Trou Bop himself Boit it. The heiress wont quarrel with you. Ill be bound. Philip acres Cheek flushed and then grew Pale with Strong hidden emotion us he looked at his wife standing beside him when the Sunset turned her Bright hair to coils of shining Gold and thought How unerringly the hand of Providence had straightened out the tangled web of Bis destiny. Out of darkness came Light a Beal lady. Going Down one of tho very Steep streets where the pavement was covered with ice i saw before me an old woman slowly and tiredly picking her was. She was one of the poor but respectable old ladies who dress in Rusty Black Wear old fashioned bonnets and carry big bags some Young folks laugh at these antiquated figures but those better bred treat them with respect and find something touching in the faded old suits the withered old faces and the knowledge that those lonely old ladies have lost youth friends and often Fortune Aud Are patiently waiting to to called away from a world that seems to have passed by and forgotten them. Well As i slipped and scuffled along i watched the Little Black Bonnet in front expecting every minute to see it go do Down Ami trying to hurry that i might offer my help. At the Corner i passed three Little school girls and heard one say to the other �?o0,1 she will do Well enough and we shall lose our coasting if we done to a but if she should Tumble and break her poor old Bonnet i should feel Soba a returned the second a pleasant faced child whose eyes followed the old lady full of a Sweet pitiful expression. A a she a such a funny looking woman i like to be seen walking with her a said the third As if she thought it would be a kind thing to do but Hadnot tho courage to try it a Well i done to care she sold and ought to be helped and in a going to do it cried the pleasant Facca Gin and running by me i saw her overtake the old lady As she stood at a crossing looking wistfully Oyer tho dangerous Glare of ice before her. A a please May am Phant i help Yon its so a Ikker a said the kind Little voice As the bands in the red mittens were helpfully a 0, thanked dear. Id no Idee the walking was so bad but i must get Home a and the old face lighted no with a grateful smile which was Worth a dozen of the Best coasts in Boston. A a tuck my Arm then ill help you Down the Street a cause in a afraid you might till a said the child offering Quot her Arm. A Yea dear so i will. Now we shall get on beautifully. In be been having dreadful time for my old Over socks Are All holes and i slip every step.�?�. A hold on May am i Shane to fall in be got rubber boots and can to Tumble Down. So chatting the two went safely across leaving me and the other girls to look after them and wish we had done the lit a i think Katy is a real Good girl done to you a said one child to the other. Quot a yes i do. Lets wait till she comes Back. No matter if we do lose some coasts a answered the child who had tried to dissuade her playmate from going to the Rescue. There i left them but i think they got a real lesson that Day in the real politeness which comes from having kindness for As they watched Little Katy dutifully supporting the old lady undaunted by the immense yellow Muff or the old socks or the queer Bonnet both their faces were full of a new respect and affection for their companion a horrible Story. Death of Ibe nerves. When a Man is wounded in Battle even slightly he is Likely to be knocked prostrate which is in fact olten the first intimation that he gets that something has happened. It is not the Force of the blow nor the wound that brings him to the ground for he May presently get up and walk away or fight again if lie is very determined but it is the Shock upon the nervous system. A similar Shock May come through a stroke of lightning. Sometimes it May to so violent that death will overtake the victim beyond recall by any reaction while there is no sufficient injury to the tissues or organs or loss of blood to cause a fatal result. A sudden death occurred recently in a prominent family where the Jung Man had no disease of any tissue that could cause alarm and no one coaids have predicted the result. Nothing could be said of it but that some violent Shock fell non an enfeebled nervous system and took life away before the trouble whatever it was could pronounce itself by Dis organizing any part of the body. Civilization and its intense activities bring a great Strain on the nervous Power physicians have to Bear this in mind and direct their counsels accordingly. A great Desideratum is to discover Bome remedy which will act promptly As a counter Shock. A a Man in Ashland a recently ordered a a a Fine Gold watch�?T1 from one of the swindling agencies in new York. Paying ten dollars express charges he received Well boxed a Beautiful a a Glass Marble clock with a note attached Reading thus a Deab Sib i the mystery in regard to this is to god the key holc by which to wind it no.

A p. fools will learn by a an Iowa Toper happened to ignite some matches Osne was awaking from a Drunken sleep and snuffing tho air be muttered something about being in the lower regions a just As i expected by Hokey v on tuesday last a French boy named Bouillon Wood Mode prisoner by the blackfeet at the Saint Clond massacre in 1864, arrived at Manistee Michigan on his Way to his Uncle at grand Haven. At this Point he a nixed the first intelligence of his relatives. He tells the following Story and from a rigid Cross examination and the fact that it is the True Story of St Cloud and Bis being Able to minutely describe Bis Uncle there can lie do doubt of his honesty. His father Peter Wood was scalped and Tom hawked. His Mother was ripped open alive her entrails taken out Aud her infant torn from her arms and impaled on the Fence. His two Sisters aged respectively 20 and 21, were nailed by their arms and feet to the Wall scalped and afterwards Tom hawked. Tho boy Bouillon then about twelve years old was compelled to witness the dying agonies of Bis Mother and fainted at the sight. On recovering he found himself and Little sister captives. The blackfeet carried them to the Western slope of the Rocky mountains and in arriving Cut off with a Tomahawk the left Arm of the boy and with a knife Cut the girls ears nearly off leaving them banging. This they did to Mark their captives. Ilene the children were separated and have never met since. He remained under close surveillance until the time of his escape subsisting for nearly seven years of raw meat and Indian fare. At first before to understood their language they abused him dreadfully but after he acquired that to some extent they treated him better. The Medicine men tried hard to cure his Arm but failed and the boy suffered with a running sore until his escape. About one year ago while the Camp was asleep to made his escape travelling along without a gun or other Means of securing game and subsisting on herbs roots Ana India potatoes unto he struck the first White settlement Pike Peak. Here he was cared for and Bis Arm by or. Bass. He made his Way by slow stages mostly on loot to this Point passing railroads and steamboats yet enable to ret passage As none by lived him. Here he met friends and was taken charge of by Charles Baggest who ascertained the truth of Biff Story raised a nurse and purchased a pass for him to grand Haven. Tho attention of senator Feny will be brought to his Caso am he will to make an Effort to have his Little sister sought for by tho government. The boy is an honest simple Frenchman and bears non his person the Marks of his terrible tortures. To wept when to described the horrible Munro or of his parents. A Milwaukee news june 27th.

A the confessions of a Vagabond. The London daily news prints a singular autobiography the confession of a Vagabond. A parliamentary report on Vagra Uey presented in 1848, noticed at some length the Case of George Atkins brine a famous Vagabond. A Charity society of London lately discovered that the Man was still living and continued a course of life which he had followed for nearly half a Century. This Man Lias always kept do a correspondence with his family and his letters Are described As written in an admirable hand with scarcely a single fault in the spelling and generally end with a few fines of poetry either of his own composition or a quotation irom some in hackneyed author like Quarles. When he desired to get to a particular place without walking or paying for a ride if that place happened to be the co Unity seat he would break windows along the Road and thus accomplish his object. In his own account of himself he says that lie adopted vagrancy be Canso he discovered that More Money could be got without work than with it As to the Means he adopted we had Best let him speak for himself. The a a Trador which he says he had worked at was that of a by Teller a a now i mean to make a clean breast of it i will candidly declare that i have stuck at nothing. 1 have worked but very Little of my Trade i have been a cattle drover i have been Salesman with three different cheap Jucks i have been a pot Hawker i have been a Vendor of pens paper razors Peter Pindar a spectacles lii cos Etc i have been in the employ for two years together of mau doctors fou different ones am More ashamed of this than of any other of my follies for the majority of them Are not robbers ouly tint homicides i have sold cards at All the principle prize fights i have been a shallow cover i. E., a member of the land Navy also a a Gigli Flyr f. E., a begging Fetter imposter a Lurker a Ofle who Nas forty different trades and master of none. My favorite a a Lurk was Butcher tallow Chandler or Currier and to Crown off i have been a preacher i this game pays Ell in Remote Villiage streets on sunday evenings provided you Are Well stocked with tracts but i was not fit for it my legibility is too easily tickled Aud once when i was invited to a hold Forth in a Small Chapel i was in no Little danger of grinning in the pulpit at my own Roguer. This was at Roth Bury Northumberland. I must also toll you in Short i have been a Rogne Imp poster Vagabond of Eracli Aud every denomination. I say Ali is be cans it is True and be cans i am now heartily ashamed of still 1 lath no Una a Siuai in not Little consequence further than that he gives it As his opinion that they All tend to Foster vagrancy and that of every ten tramps nine Are imposters or professional tramps. He was asked How Many a ails he Hud been imprisoned in and Here is Bis answer a a and now fourthly How Many goals ? Well Here she goes. 1 have been in a gaol More than Ono Hundred different times there Are but two countries in England that i have escaped i have also been in several in Scotland and Wales. In tho great majority of cases drunkenness has been tho canse i have never been convicted of felony or larceny but i have for obtaining Money Nuder false pretences and several times for hawking without a License Many times for vagrancy smashing windows and other offences for the whole of which i richly deserve hanging. To this i presume sir Yon Wii say professional Vagabond ism is to presume less common in1 this country than in a nope hut we have other cases of habitual offenders Whoso cases present a not less interesting problem to tho students of social science. A remarkable dream. A gentleman of the highest character a minister of the gospel related to us the following remarkable facts which were furnished him by tho Rev. I. N. Thompson a Well known methodist preacher of Southern Indiana. One of or. Thompsons parishioners had a very singular dream which ran As follows As he related it to his family the next morning lie dreamed that in walking through Ono of his pasture Fields he came upon a certain tree near the path he was following and which had an opening from rot on Ono Side. Near tho foot of this tree coiled along Side the path he saw a his dream a Large yellow Rattlesnake and this Snake his dream told him and bitten him and killed him. After relating the dream to his family next morning he concluded to go to the pasture and there beside the path at the foot of the half Rotten tree Lay coiled up a Large Rattlesnake. Seizing a Small limb from a tree lying near he truck at the Snake Bat in doing so his foot slipped and be fell non tho poisonous reptile which bit him upon the Cheek.
