"Of course," said Jttrtit i Grey, antl as
flic spoke tlie' words a cold chill seemed
to creep like slowly congealing ice around
her whole heart.
"If you had consulted ne as to your
affairs," wont on the young man, "instead
of taking ihis extraordi lary f-tep, en

"Yes I know," hnrrii- lly interposed
Judith ; but it's over anil past now, so
perhaps we hnd U-tter not talk about it."
The red winter sunset was blazing with
Milln fire above the ccdar copse In I lie
west ; the leafless trees livli up ihejjr black
arms in a sort ot wrestling agony, toward
the sky, as the bleak wind tossed thoni to

ominous croak, in the woods at the back of

"H isn't v-i v cheerful.' " said .Tndilii ;

"The more reason for wanting to get
out of it no'-,"' said the doctor, impatiently-
Judith was silent. She looked nt the
blazing loss on the 61d-fabioned hearth,
and fried to keep bck the lust-rising
l)r. Dcdiing rose ami took up his hat.
"Then I am to consider that our en
gagement is quite at an end," said the
Yes," said Judith, in a low tone.
"I shall always wish you, well," said the
"I thank you." said Judith.
Good-by !" said Dr. Dedfnig.
"Good-hy!" said Judith.
The next moment she was alone with
the bl iziiifj !oj, nnd the cricket chirping
on the hearth, and the strange, weird
shadows that came and went on the wain
It was just, a month to-nij;lit since they
buried old Miles Grey out of sight. Little
Judith, who had worn herself out in
taking ts.re ol him. had dropped a tew
sincere tears on the cheap colli that in
cased his remains. lnt no one else had
seemed particularly to grieve.
Mrs. I'ytchley. her eldest sifter, who
was married to a Xew Yorrf grocer, had
boldly declared thai it was htjjli time tin
old mati took himself o!1" the stage ol tlii
world, and made i.o secret of her 'isnp
potnl nienf, when it was dl-cove cl that :t
thousand dollars in gold pieces re pre
sentt d all Ids hoarded wealth, with the.
exception ol the cranberry swamp, upon
whose Verge stood the hon-se; and this
drtary property, by Ihe terms of the will,
was to be divided between bis t"i i.I'-cc,
Judith Grey and Marhi Pytchiey, as they
themstrlvi S might agree.
'I'll take the ready inon-y.' said Mrs.
I'ytchlry. Iifi!y. "What cuid I do

cither?" said llobart Pytihiey, ho was
whittling a pine stick Iicside the lite.
'I dare say sJie could manage very
nicely," said Maria. ; "I've heard Uncle
Miles s:iy that he sold :-ixtv dollars" wort!.
ofcrnnberrieH one year out of the swamp.'"
Humph!" grunted Mr. Itch!cy.
"And that's ' legal interest on a thou
sand dollars, you know," tulded his wile.
"What do you say. Judith ?"
' "It makes no difference to me," said
"It doe? to me, then !" said Mrs. Pytch
ley. "Because, as you know very well,
Ilobart's business Is in the city, and we
could do nothing with a lot of swamp
land down here in the backwoods."
So Mrs. Pi tchley had taken thf- lion's
share of the old man's behest, ami gone
hack to ker city home over Ilohart'-"
grocery store; and young Dr. Dediing.
who had confidently calculated on at least
live hundred dollars, to buy surgical in
struments and fit up an office in the vil
lage adjoining five hundred dollars as the
dowry ot his hr! !"-elect broke, Ids engage
ment in a fit o. pique that Judith should
have so deliberately flung her .fortune
"A set of harpies !" cried he, with dis
gust. 'Stop, Dr. Di-diinjj !" cried Judith, col
oring up. "You forget j I hat you are
shaking of my sister and her husband."
"But they had no business to Impose
upon yon tluw !" -xe!aimed the doctor.
"I agreed to the plan, without remon
Dr. Dediing shruzged bis shoulders.
'In that," he said sharply, "you showed
your hick of common seme. If you had
no good regard lor yourself, you might
liave had some for ute."
"Was It for money you wanted me ?"
demanded Judith, stuns to Ihe quick.
Dr. Dediing colored and hesitated.
"A mtn must take monetary mattets
into consideration," he said.
And so it came almnt that tlie engage
ment was canceled, and Judith Grey was
sitting there, alone In the wintry twilight,
with clasped hands and head dropped low
upon her breast.
Dr. Dediing plodded homo to the vil
lage, and as he passed tlie brilliant win
dows of the little hostlcry, he paused,
remembering the bitter cold of the winter
air. tlie frosty influence of the breeze.
"I may as well go in and warm myself,"
1 e thought.
i Mine host met him with a cheery air.
"Walk in, doctor walk lit," wild he.
"Xot that room," as Dediing mechani
cally laid his hand upon the door-knob of
the apartment he usually entered. The
railway committee is a-slttin' there. This
The railway committee," echoed Ded
iing. "What railway committee? You
don't mean that they're actually taking
any steps about that old Idea of a railway
between here and Glassville?"
"Yes. I oo," said the landlord. "It's a
committee of rich capitalists as are build
ing factories close to the Falls ; and they
mean to put tip tenement houses all along,
and l-'.y down a line of rails, and don't

but it's to go right through old Miles
Grey's cranberry' swamp, the new railway
is. And the chairman of tlie committee
is going to offer Miss Judith five thousand
dollars in good, clean', hard" money for her
share in it."
Dr. Dudiine: started.
'Five thousand dollars!" repeated
Cotikl it be a fact? If so and there
seemed very little reason for doubting it
what a fatal mistake he had made in re
jecting bride who could bring him tlie
rich portion ot a cranberry swamp as her
wedding dower. It he had only known
this half an hour one little halt hour
"Don't fret almiit him, Judith, dear; lie
i-iit worth It," urged honest Marmaduke
liedlleld. who had stopped on his way to
the postoffice to bring a message from his
mother. '-He was always a pretentions
sort ot a fellow, all for outward show,
with a heart like stone and a nature as
shallow as Deacon Dolor's brook."
Judith looked up at the clumsy, good
hcarted. h.Mil-handcd farmer, and won
dered that she bad never before noticed
what a true face anil what clear, frank
eyes he had.
"Forget him. Judith," plcad-d Red field;
and idie began seriously to think that she
would at least make the trial. "Come
over to our house and stay with mother.
It's too bleak nnd lonesome for yoti here
for the present, at least. Spring wili he

Judith Gtey looked around at the soli
tary room, and thought of Mrs. Redfield's
! 'g cosey kitchen, with its bright-colored
lag carper, its windows lined with blos
soming geraniums and its shrill-voiced
canary bird hanging over the work-table.
Do you think." she hesitated, "that
your mother would be willing to be troub
led with such a gutst as me?"
Duke U' llfielil's face grew radiant.
"Only try her." said he. "Dear Ju

And the next day Mrs. Redfleld came
over in the old farm carry-all to claim her
gitesf. and the old swamp house was left
to Irs own dreary desolation and the driv
ing snows of January.
Scarcely three weeks had elapsed, wlien
young Dr. Dediing came to the Redfleld
farm in his new gir, with the old roan
horse that really made quite a good ap
pen ranee tl( u yon didn't hurry him. and
the road was to'crahly good, anil he was

"There ain't nobody sick here,"' said
Julius, the hired man. who was splitting
wood at the side ot the house as he eyed
the d etnr rather suspiciously.
"Xo. I know It,"' said Dr. Dolling
but I've called to 8"e Miss Grey."
'Miss Grey ain't noways nilin', as 1
know of." persisted Ju'lug. leeling the
e'lge of Ihe axe, and still staring hard at
the medical represenlati-e of Glassville.
'T have called..' said Dr. Dediing, with
dignity, "as a friend."
"Oh." said Julius.
Will you be so kind as to let me in ?"
persisted the doctor.
"Taln't no use," said Julius, rolling a
prodigious pine knot down from the pile,
and preparing himself for a stupendous
effort ; "there ain't nobotly .at home."
"Nobody at home !" ech-KHl the doctor.
"They've all gone to church," explained
"To church, man! Why It's Tuesday."
"Who said it wa'i.t?" retorted "Julius
They ain't gone to hear sarvice they've
gone to he married."
"Who?" demanded Dr. Dediing.
"Our Marmaduke and Miss Judith.'
And down came the ax upon Ihe end
of the pine knot -with a crash that made
the man of medicine start Kick.
The new railroad was duly constructed
directly across the boggy depth of old
Miles Grey's cranberry swamp, and the
five thousand dollars was placed to Mrs.
Marmadrke Redfield's account in the
nearest national hank; and Mrs. Pytchtey
thinks she made a mistake in taking the
gold eagles instead of tlie cranberry swamp
bnt young Dr. Dediing thinks his mis
take was greater still.

There has been considerable complaint
among the tax-payers of tiie State because
of I lie great expense of State and county
governments and the inquiry is some
times made, "where diies the mo-iey go?"
We were looking over the records ot the
State House yesterday, and our attention
whs attracted by the label "Indigent
fund." and in looking over the pajers we
discovered on top. a bill sent u. from
Jackson county tor keeping non-resident
indigent persons amounting to over $300.
On exa'iiiiiatioti it was found that ten
persons had been cared for at different
times ami for different periods of time, but
in each case a hill was rendered and audited
by tlie Jackson County Coutt, at ti e a e
of three dollars per day fir each and every
day. It appears from the records that the
County Court of Jackson county, has Pp.
tered into a eon tract with some person or
persons, to keep non-resident indigent per
sons nt the rate of three dollars pe" day
and that the bills are sent to the Secretary
ot State for payment out of tlie indigent
tun 1 of the State.
This, certainly, is an exorbitant price
to pay lor that kind of service. The best
hotels hi tlie State would be glad to keep
them in first class style for a much less
price. To draw it mild, we must call this
a game of fraud and a swindle on the tax
payers of the Slate. W'e do not know
whether the Secretary of the State pro
poses to allow this bill or not. but we shall
deem him remiss in his duty it he does not
cut down those prices more than one-hail.
This one item does not amount to a very
great sum. but it shws a disposition to
rob the State, and it is these items taken
in the aggregate that depletes the trtaury
and makes the people wonder where the
money goes. We shall watch the actions
of the State authorities in their disposition
of this bill of accounts and should it he
paid in lull, wo glial", demand a reason

The wheat grain is a fruit consisting of
a seed and its coverings. All the jnidille
part of the grain is occupied by large, thin
cells, full of a powdery substance which
contains nearly all the starch ol the wheat.
Outside of the central statchy mass is a
sing'e row of squarish cells, filled with a
yellowish material, very rich in nitroge
iioua, that is. flesh-forming matter. Be
yond this again there are six thin coats or
coverings, containing much mineral mat
ter, both ot phosphates nnd potash. The
mill products of these coverings of the seed
are peculiarly rich in nutriment, and fine
flour is robbed of a large percentage of
valuable and nutritious food. Middl ngs
not only contain more fibrin and mineral
matter than fine flour, but also more fat.
The fibrous matter, or outer coat, which,
is indigestible, forms one-sixth of the bran,
but not one-hundredth of the fine flour.
Wheat contains the greatest quantity of
gluten and the smallest of starch ; rye, a
medium proportion of both, while in bar
ley, oats and corn the largest proportion ot
starch and the smallest of gluten are to be
found. In practice 100 pounds of flour
will make from 133 to 137 pounds of bread,
a good average Iieing 133 pounds ; hence a
barrel of 193 pounds should yield 236 one

Mr. Gough tells the following sfory : I
knew a man who was startled with
a face peering out nt him from the wall ;
he went up to it and wiped It out and
stood back again, nnd still It was there;
he went up to it again and wipe d it out ;
and stood back it was there yet. Ill
very hair seemed 1 1 sta nd with horror as
he went up to ir, and with a terrible blow
of bis fit struck the wall and left it mark
ed with blood. He stood back again it
was there ; ami lie went and heat, and beat
till he had broken the bones in his hand,
with beating out that which was palpable
to him'; and yet lie was conscious, and
the consciousness thrilled through his
frame with horror, that it was but a phan
tom of his Imagination. jAtt a man suffer
that six days and six nights; let a physi
cian sit by his side and tell him. "Now,
sir, if you drink ngain, you will suffer it
again." "But. doctor, I will never drink
again ; doctor, the thought is too terrible ;
I shall never suffer it. I will never take
drink again." And once more healthy
blood comes in that man's vein's, and in
tlie emphatic language of Scripture, he
"seeks it yet again," and again tie is
brought down, ngaiu he endures it all.
and again the physician sits by his side.
"You rememlier that which I told you ?"
Yes." "If you drink you will have ii
again ; and do not send for me. for you
will die." '"Doctor, I will never touch ii
again." And yet he rise from his couch
in agony, seeks it again, and again he is
brought down, and his shrieking spirit
dies in disgust into eternity from the body
so fearfully and wonderfully made by
God. He knew all the way along it must
be so. Such is the terrible slavery of in
temperance. A "SticeexsfMl"' Duel.
A duel which took place the other day
at Phillippopolis excited intense interes
among the inhabitants, being the first duel
Phiiippopolis has ever known since it has
been a city. The combatants were a
ISiissiuH artillery officer and M. Pachtery.
rhe editor of the French part of the Greco
French newspaper the Phiiippopolis. The
quarrel arose out ot a row at a cafe, where
fie Russian officer, by way of "chaff,"
brandished a sword over the editor's In ad
as though lie intended to cut it off. This
led to a challenge, and a rneetin : for tl e
following day was arranged. Revolvers
in the absence of duellii g pistols were
chosen as the weapons to be used; the dis
tance to lie 25 paces : lots to lie drawn to
decide who should have the first fire, aud
the thiol to cease after the first discharge
of idiots. M. Pachtery was anxious that
the duel should ga on until one or the
other was disabled, but his amiable wishes
on ibis point were overruled, aud Ihe affair
arranged to take place cn the ' one shot
apiece" basis. To compensate him for
his disappointment the editor wen tin
right ot the first fire, leveling his weapon,

Complaint was filed in tlie Circuit Court
for Jackson county on the 19h day of
January, 1SS0, by Dowell & Neil, attor
neys for plaintiff in tlie case of Augusta
Sisson , liesr at law of Dr. David Sisson, vs
A. D. Hclman, John R. He man, Mary
Jane Ilelman, M. J. Uelm.in, et al. This
is a suit in equity to quiet title to real
estate, aud involving tlie title to property
in the town ot Ashland, valued at not less
than fl0,000. The complaint sets forth
that Dr. David Sisson was owner of and in
peaceable possession of a cer.'ain block of
land in the town of Ashland, the title to
which was based on a written contract for
a deed for b'ock No. 2 on the original plat
of Ashland, given by' A. D. Hclman to
Morris Howell and assigned to Sisson.
It relates that Dr. Sisson had erected valu
able buildings on said block including a
hospital, that while residing on the same
on tlie 5th dav of April, 1SGS, when the
plaintiff was only eight days old, he wa
shot and killed by an assass'n, within sixty
yards of A. D. Ilel man's front door, and
that soon afterward, the house in which
Sisson was living at the time of his death,
and also a house on the Sisson farm near
Astfland, were burned by an incendiary
who succeeded in burning tlie contract to
Howell. Subsequently, the complaint
alleges : the plat of Ashland was stolen
from the Recorder's office, and a new plat
filed having an additional block aud on
which block No. 2 (owned by Sisson) ws
changed to block No. 3. so as to .destroy
its identity and defraud the plaintiff out of
lot. No. 0 in said block which had been
deeded to her by Jj. J. C. Duncan, who had
I purchased nt Sheriff's sale under an execu
! tlon against the property of A. D. Ilelman.

I third p'at of the town of Ashland on which
block No. 2 (claimed hy tlie plaintiff) U
not laid dowt ,with int. n- fodi fraud plain
tiff an 1 entirety desfoy nil evidence of her
title. Plaintiff asks that certain deeds
made by A. D. Hclman to parties now in
possession he declaie 1 vo'd. so far as they
conflict with her interest in the land, ami
he be compelled to make her a deed accord
ing to the contract made to Howell and
assigned to Si-son. If the complaint be
true it points to the commission of the
blackest deed that was ever done in Jack,
son county, and if prohed the fact would
be disclosed that arsoi, larceny ot a public
record and forgery were ned to cover it;

who had traveled, and said he knew
diing or two about the customs of elegant
white folks, stated that it was always tba
custom to throw shoes alter the bride n4
-he was driven off. so as the happy couple
tunved away from tha door the negroes
ierked off their shoes and hurled them at
the vehicle. One negro, who was tins
possessor of a No. 15 foot threw a sIkhj
