It was a long time ago, and yet
it scorns but yesterday, that an
event occurred which even now
when 1 think of it thrills mc with
an indescril able sensatioo. It was
on an eve following an election, and
the victorious party was celebrating
in honor of the event, with bauds of
music, torchlight procession and
general rejoicing. Everybody seem
ed to be on the street. Houses
were illuminated, bonfires were
kite I ii'ii i cheers and hoots mingled
with deafening uroai',and altogeth
er it presented a scene at once grand
and beautiful. To a dispositirjti like
mine it was truly edifying, and so
lost was I in the carnival of the
night, that it was near twelve
o'clock before I thought about
starting for home.; and as this was
the latest that I had ever storied
out, I began to feel a little anxious.
My home was about three mi'es
from where I was, and the way lay
through a thick grove of timber for
about half the distance, and it was
one of those gloomy, winding roads,
with deep dells skirted by thick
underbrush, with an occasional
brook running across spanned by
log bridges, to vary the mouotany.
One of those places my imagination
had conjured up as being the center
of everything infernal. Whether it
was the ta'es the old women told,
or my own fancy, I did not know,
but certain it was I felt so, and
could not help it ; and even in the
daytime when passing that way I
had more than once felt half inclined
to whistle. On this particular night
it seemed darker than usual, made sd
by the lights in the town. Ap
proaching the old wood with a tim
id port, I pressed on until I came to
the verge of the forest Here I
stopped and tried to peer through
the darkness, but I could see noth
ing; all was dark and lonesome
it put one in mind of a long tunnel
running through a high mountain,
so dense was it. Nothing was mov
ing, all was silent with the excep
tion of a forlorn bullfrog rendering
a melancholly dirge that was in
unison with the surroundings. I
plucked up courage, however, and
pushed on in a kind- of dog trot
fully prepared, if occasion warranted
it, to increase my speed according
ly. By this lime I had reached the
first hill, and had started down the
grade at a pretty smart pace, look-,
ing from side to side as I moved
along, when all at once I heard a into the darkness, I turned and re
noise as if somebody breaking a sumed my way. I crossed the
stick and, on looking ahead to the j bridge in a smart walk and hur-
left, I saw something white peering !
through the thick brush. My first j
impression was to get away as fast ,
as possible, but then I had walked
up so near to it that I wotlld not '
have much chance if I made the at-;
tempt. But I quickly came to the
conclusion that I would try and got
by it, as soon as possible; so, turn-
ing well to the right, I made a smart ;
run, with the intention of leaving t
liia lioiinr in thn mar but. he avm. :
ingly defined my object and bound-
ed out of the woods and stood in
the middle of the path before me.
I now began to get scared, and I
naturally thought of ghosts and
hohgoblins, fairies and elf's, but
which of these this one was my
ideas were not clear enough to de-:
tine. I began to shake with terror, j
and was alwut to turn and try to
get away, when the figure spoke,
and wanted to know where I had
been. To hear a voice in a place
like the one described would have
been some relief in an ordinary c ise,
but the thought that this man must
be mad divested ray mind of the
fencied security that 1 bad indulged
in but moment before. As he j
spoke he advanced towards me,
while I in turn tried to get back.
But it was no use ; i could not stir,
and I was obliged to wait for his
noNt move. As he came up I could
sec that he had nothing on but a
shirt or loose wrapper thrown
around his Moulders ; his feet were
bare, and take him all in all he was
as wild a looking specimen of a hit
man being as one would be apt to
meet in a life-time. About this
time I began to recollect that I had
heard somebody say, some days be."
fore, that there wa a crazy man
sotnewhfre in that-section of coun
try, and as this idea struck me it
made me creep all over for if there
was anything in tlte world that I
feared it teas a mad-man, for I had
often listened to my father relating
talcs in connection with them, how
strong they were, and how in one
particular case t took five men to
do anything with a crazy man. I
had also heard him say that at
times they could talk as rationally
as anybody, and then again a spell
would come over them.
Again he wanted to know where
1 had been. I told him that I had
been down town to hear the music
and sec the torchlight procession,
and also that there was going to lie
a big supper, and everybody was
invited to attend. I grew eloquent
in describing the performances of
the night, hoping he would like to
see some of it himself. My descri-
tion of affairs seemed todelighthim
hugely, and hccommonccd todance
around and clap his hands in high
lie then proposed that I should
go back with him. I told him that
I was just going home to get a light
so that I could march in the pro
cession, and that he might go down
there and that I would soon be
back again, and overtake him. All
this time he was dancing around
me, and I could see his eyes glisten
ing through the darkness, and he
would hold his hands up before
him, apparently feeling for some
thing, then he would laugh in a
wild way, and clap his hands.
I had almost despaired getting
rid of him, when all at oiioe he turn
ed and told me to make haste and
hurry back, all of which I promised
faithfully to do ; he then started up
the hill on a kind of a leap. I stood
for a moment and watched him,
thinking I had plenty of time to
contemplate the situation, and at
thesamo time thanking my stars
for my escape. As he passed out
ried up the rise just ahead, and
when I had reached the top I turn
ed and looked back, but could not
sec anything. I then started on a
kind of a jog-trot, and had ran
abouta quarter of a mile when I
heard something blow behind me
I quickly turned and like to have fell
down with terror, tor there, not six
feet from me, was this maniac,
frothing at the mouth; and when I
turned he yelled like a fiend. I

his long arms. Now he would
laugh, then chuckle to himself, flat
tering himself that I would soon
tall into his hands. After the lirst
scare was over, I 6oon recovered
myself, and settle! down to hard
work, for I knew I had it to do for
ny life. Now he would scream and
whoop; then he would clap his
hands, and occasionally he would
rub me very close,espocially on lev
el ground. But I was a very fart
runiMir, and I had practiced run
ning long distances, and I was sat
isfied that on a clear road that no
body could catch me. By this time
I had gained very little op him; 1
was not doing my best ; I has) saved
myself for the last quarter of a mile,
and I thought he had lieen running
longer than I had, and might pos
sib'y lose his wind. From where
we first started it was alwut two
miles to my home, and we had ran
alxiut a half a mile at least, the
most of the way being pretty rough.
1 could soon see that I was gaining
on him. At intervals he would
shout, but his shouts were growing
very taint, and as he commenced to
slack up I increased my speed until
I got'in sight of my home, when 1
made a straight run right ap to the
foot ot the stejis, .md with one
spring I landed on the piazza, some
live steps from the ground. One
jump brought me to the door,
which I went through in a twink
ling, landing in the middle of the
sitting-room, right side up with
care. Mv father was setting up,
engaged in reading, when I so un
ceremoniously entered the room.
He sprang to his feet and demanded
why I came into the room in that
manner. As rapidly as my remain,
ing allowance of wind would admit,
I briefly stated the reason of mv
great haste. He listened attentive
ly to my story, but when I was
through, with an incredulous air, he
intimated that the story was only
the old dodge merely an excuse
by which I hnjied to evade a repri
mand for being out so late. How
ever, the next day the crazy man
was found in the wood, and secured,
satisfying my father of the truth
fulness of my story of the chase.
This night's adventure may account
for the fact that, although a young
man, my once dark hair is now un
timely sprinkled witn gray.

My gun wa-i a single-barrel shot

It is not customary, as in America,
for young gentlemen and ladies to .t

with young men, and live in clubs
or bachelor bands, whew each one
pays his expenses, and lives as eco
nomically as he can, When they seek
female company, which Is only now
and then, it is tit the public balls or in
worse connections. This custom has
become so established that it works
the other way, and no young lady

a gentleman before she il engaged to

Chases by a Saw Loo, A Pitts
burg iikt tells the following : "Did
you ever hear of being chased by a
stiw log. as It chanced to a French i 'a
uadlau out in Curtis' woods last week?
It happened thllSwUe. They were
cutting lite timber from the brow of a
hill in these famous woods, and roll
ing it to the bottom when-a steam
saw mill is to he erected. The
Frenchman was attempting to manip
ulate a huge log for a safe descent,
when he discovered it was getting the
better of him. He was on I he under
side, and it would not do to "let it,
slide," so he screamed for help, lint
no helpea His strength was sure
ly and rapidly failing, and there was
nothing to do hut run for it, and run
he did ; a fearful race. The natural
philosophers say tliat a log gains in
rapidity as it descends. Ft is other
wise with human legs on a run. even
when as ill this ease descent is steep
and icy. There was no turning out.
and the log g.dtiisl with terrible timid
ity on the frightened Chimuuck, and
was just now on his heels, when luck
ily be spied a hollow in his path into
which he popped with abound; hut
had hardly time to huddle himself in
to his hole, when crash ! crash! the
log thundered oyer him ami left him
safe, but abrul the worst seared man
that ever hallooed in Curtis' woods, if
his nerves are no stronger titan ours
claim to Is-. And that is how a saw
log chased a Frenchman."

vote of its representatives in the lower
House of Congress on the proposition
to pay the employees full w ages f, ,,
eight hours' work. With the reduc
tion of the number of hours, there was
a corresponding reduction in wages.
The proposition was to reeogutisc the
eight-l r system by making up the
deficiency in the past, and authorizing
Government ofllclals to pay a t'nfi
