Horrible Tragedy In Canada- A
Le Kouveau Monde says : "It is said
that a very mysterious murder has been
comitted in a place not stated, by persons
whoso names are concealed as much as
possible. If tho matter is unveiled we
will speak of it." The following is the
supposed solution of the mystery. It
seems to pos.nexs all the characteristics of
a sensational hoax : "Un an evening o!
March last, at about eleven o'clock, a
ravclcr was crossing the small bush on
he left shore of Mille Isle river, between
St. Kustach a:;d St. Rone. That location
has always, rightly or not, possessed the
reputation of being fatal to belated trav
elers. Tho man, then, was ouiotly cross
ing tho silent wood, when suddenly an
individual in rags, and with sinister looks,
jumped at tho hoist s bridle, and bran
dishing an axe over the affrighted person s
head, cries, 'Your money or your life.
Tho traveler anwrcrod, l have only
820: there they are, and lot me go.
Having received tho money, the robber
allowed his victim to leave, which he did
at the fullest gallop of his horso. At a
short difttanco from the wood, the travel
cr knocked at the dour of a small house
and begtrcd for hospitality. In that
house there was only a woman, who first
refused admittance, giving, for excuse,
that her hunbaud was away. However,
upon more pressing entreaties, she allow
ed the stranger to enter her lodging, and
directed him to the garret to spend the
rot of the night. He went up, and as he
wa preparing a placo for sleeping, he
heard a vo'.eo which bo recognized as that
of tho assailant in the bush. Here, wife,
said the voiec, 'I have done a good busi-
m to-night. I have met a man in the
wood from whom I dctnaded his money
or his life, and he gave me $20 'Good,'
said the woman, 'I tot that is tho man up
stairs. lc. said husband. and he
must have moro money.' Wcll said
tho old woman, 'he will toon be a aideop
and wo will kill him.' 'I will go un to
the garret, said the man, 'and will knock
him down with my axe : then you wil
cut his throat wilh my razor 'Agreed,'
said tho woman. During that con versa
tion it may well be supposed that our trav
clcr did not go to sloep, but kept watch
ing for the conclusion of tho horrible
drama he had just heard the couple plan
ning. One hour afterwards the traveler
heard the approaching footsteps of the
enemies; the man in front win his axe
a a a
ana the worn -in holding a lamp in one
hand and a razor in the other. As the
robber entered the room, the traveler ud
denly tor tho axe from his hands, and
knocked him down senseless at one blow
Then the woman flew at the falling body
whose head she severed with the razor
little thinking she was killing her own
husband. Tho traveler flew from the
houo and made a deposition before
magistrate, ana it is said tho woman is
now in jail."

THE TWO MERCHANTS.
When trade grew lack and notes fel
due, the merchant's face grew long and
blue ; his dreams were troubled throug
the night, with sheriffs' bailiffs all i
sight. At last his wife unto him eaid
Rise up at onc get out of bed, aud get
your papr, ink and pen, and say these
words unto all men :
My goods I wish to sell to you, and to
your wives and daughters too; my prices
they shall be so low, that each will buy
before they go.
He did as his good wife advised, and
in the papers advertised. Crowds came
and bought of all he had j his notes were
paid, his dreams mado glad ; and he wi
tell to you this dav, how well did printer'
ink repay. He told us this with know
ing wink., how ho was saved by printer'
The other in a placo as tight, contented
was tho press to slight: and did not le
the people know, of what he did or where
to go. His drafts fell duo and wero not
paid, and a levy on his goods was made;
the storo was closed until tho sale, and
for some timo he was, in jail. A bank
rupt now without a cent, at lcisuro he
can deep repent, that he was foolish and
unwise, and did not freely advertise.
If you think tho moral of this story
wise, you should not neglect to advertise.
Animals. The maintainance of ani
mals in the stable or in the yards at any
timo of tho year is unnatural, but if they
have a great abundance of food and pop
siderable range, the conditions surround
ing them approach those they aro subject
to in the wild state. Tho amountjf food
animals exposed to the weathpr'wiil cat
is enormous, and f-hen thoy never como
out in moro than fair condition. Wo
think overy spring that it is almost absurd
to reiterate our condemnation of farmers
who expeot, as a matter of course, to
have their cattle "6pring poor." This
ponditjon of a man's stock tells of expos
ure, lack of food, and of very serious
1qsse3 to tho farmer himself losses both
of fodder waited and of cattlo injured
in their productiveness for tho rest of the
yearj or tho rest pf their liyes.

New Pens If a steel pen is hard
and obstinate, refuses to, yiejd 'when
pressed, and annoys by its rigidity, ho$
it half. a minute or"le3s in tho flame of a
gaslight or candle, and stick it into wa
ter, oil, or tallow. In most instances it
will euro the rigidity. In fact, it is
a good practice to pass a steel pen through
the flames before using it. - This burns
off the oil used in tempering, and pre
vents that slipping of the ink, or the re
fusal to flow, generally noticeable in all
new steel pens.
Mketcli of King Theodore.
Tho Emperor Theodore, Mr, Dufton
tells us, was born about 1820, in tho Prov
ince of Kwara, which is situated to tho
wct of Lake Tzana, and of which his
undo was Governor. His mother was.
according to some, of low extraction j but,
according to others she was of good birth,
and could even trace her descent to the
Queen of Sheba, the prthodox ancestress
of Abyssinian royalty. Kassa. for such

tho battle of Deraskio, he had hi rase 1
crowned as Negus Theodoras, or King of

the name of Theodorus appears to have
been mado in consequence of an ancient
prophecy that an hmpcror of that name
would raiMO tho Kingdom of Abyssinia to
an unprecedented pitch of greatness. He
then attacked the Wallo Galbs, a 3Io

the exception of Sboa, which had long
been virtually an independent state.
;ainst this Kingdom he now directed
his arms, and soon succeeded in complete
ly subjugating it, thus uniting under his
sway the wbolo of the so loog disunited
provinces ci Abyssinia, liu next pro
ject was to drive the Turks from their
possessions on tbe coast, and thus to ac
quire for Abyssinia an outlet on the Red
cea an aa vantage wnicn that country
had cot possessed since Massowah was
taken by the Turks, in the sixteenth cen
tury. 1 Ins, however, he was never in a
position to attempt. His conquered prov
inces revolted, and the cruel clement in
his character, which soon developed it
self, so alienated his subjects that they
gradually icu away iroui mm, until now
he seems to hold little territory beyond
that in the immediate neighborhood of
Dcbra Tabor, which he has mado bis cap
ital. Theodorus appears to be a man of
great talent, courage and energy, with a
singular power over others. Mr. Dafton,
who saw 'him in 1863, thns describes
him : " His appearance was that of a
man about forty-five, and possessed of a
well-knit but not overpowerful frame,
conveying the idea of being tough and
wiry rather than of a strong physical de
vclopement. His features are dark; ap
proaching to black, but he has nothing
of the negro about him. His features
are altogether thoso of the European.
His head is well formed, and his hair is
arranged in large plaits extending back
from the forehead. His forehead is high
and tends to be prominent. His eye is
black, full of fire, quick, and piercing.
His nose has a little of the Roman about
it, be ng slightly arched and pointed. His
mouth is perfect, and the smile which,
during tho conversation, continually
played upon it was exceedingly agreeable,
I may say, fascinating. He has very lit-
tie monstacne or Deara. 11 is manner is
pleasant,, gracious and even polite, and
his , general expression, even when his
features were at rest, was one of intelli
gence and benevolence. On the whole,
tbe physiognomist could find no trace of
fierce passion save in the lightning glance
of his eyes. I watched for the keen
shot of light coming from them at times,
and reflected on what he could bo capa
ble; but they did not strike me as treach
erous eyes. I felt that ho could act sav-
ageiy under irritation. no adds in a
note, " I here take occasioq to remark
that, though Theodorus consumes a vast
quantity of arrapky, he is no drunkard :
that is, I have never heard of him beipg
overcome with drink, .lie always stops
at a certain point. .

Moral Business men, if you wish to
command the respect and attention of the
publio, and make money you should ad
vertise. Whenever you discover that a
business man don't advertise, or if he has
bsen a liberal advertiser and has com
menced withdrawing his patronage from
the papers you may be sura that there is
something wrong that if his house ain't
a 'one-horse concern" already, it will be,

Taxation of United States Bonds
Mr. Lyman Balcom. a radical member.
of the house of assembly in New York,
having introduced a resolution into that
body looking to the taxation of the Uni
ted States bonds and securities for state,
and local purposes, they being exempt
now, was most boldly taken to task by
. ft w . . r
tut? uuuuMuiuers ortrao, too xicw. JlOiX
irwune. sir. Jialcom then sent a com
munication in reply to the Tribune, from,
which we take the following extract.
They are sensible and to the point. Ue
" I have been a republican from thu
organization of the party. I opposed
slavery believed it was- wrong for. one
portion ot the human family to be com
pelled to Jabor lor and support another.
more favored portion of our race. I tm
now opposed to compelling our farmers,
mechanics ond other working classes to
pay taxes for state purposes and for the
support of local government in counties,
towns, cities and villages, and for ' build-,
ing court-houses, jails, poor-houses, school
houses, bridges, highways, and their
maintenance which holders of United
Stales bonds ought to pay. I favor equal
and exact justice in taxation and equal
civil rights for all men, and I am unabla
to see that such measures would conflict
with our national constitution or violate,
tho obligation of contracts.
" The people submitted to the acts of
Congress that compelled them to tike
United States notes in payment of pri
vate debts which were payable in gold;
when contracted, because there was a
necessity for such a law, and it operated
alike upon all classes of society. And
they can not see how any injustice would
be douc to holders of United States
bonds not payable iu gold, if the govern
ment should pay sucn bonds in legal-ten-,
der notes, in case the holders of such,
bonds will not exchange them for bonds .
subject to taxation under state laws.
" If you will mingle a little more than,
you do with the masses of the people,
you will learn that tbey demand that jus-.
tice shall be done respecting the taxation,
of national bonds, and that the people,
are fearfully in earnest upon this ques
tion. And what is right, legal and just
they will maintain at the polls of elec
tions. " All - holders of United States bond
should be willing to bear their just pro
portion of the burdens of all kinds of
taxation, and thus surely prevent repudi
ation of the national debt.
" Your talk of our national bonds all
going abroad if they should be subject to
taxation under the state laws provokes a
smile. It is the merest bosh. It seem
to me that very few, if any, holders of
such bonds would sell them for such a
reason, ce cause iney coma not invest the
proceeds thereof in any non-taxable set
curitics. But if they should sell their
bonds in Europe the proceeds would
come back to this country in money oc
property, and be subject to taxation un
der state laws. And there is no danger
that bondholders will bite off their own.
"Our State bonds are held in this coun
try, notwithstanding they are taxable un
der State laws, and our national bonds
would be held here as they now are should
they be subject to such taxation.
"Our State bonds are above par in the
market, and the price of our national
bonds would also remain above par at out
stock boards if they were declared to ba
taxable for State and municipal purposes,
for the reason that they aro the most de
sirable securities that capitalists can pur
chase or hold in this or any other coun
try.' ; , '
"If it is wrong, and opposed to the gen
eral welfare, for one man to live at ease
upon means i n vested in bonds exempt from,
taxation, while his neighbor is compelled)
to labor, and pay taxes that should be ap
portioned and levied upon the entire prop
erty of both according to the amount own?
cd by each, then the resolution I have
presented in the assembly is right, and
you should favor it ; but otherwise it
should be rejected, and privileged classes;
be supported in this country by our labor
?'Now, sir, I most earnestly implore you
to favor the conversion of our entire na
tional debt into bonds subject to taxation,
for State and municipal purposes, as soon,
as that can bo accomplished under the
Constitution of the United States, without
doing any injustice to the holders of bond
already issued, and thus, save the Repub;
lican party from defeat next fall, and pre
vent repudiation of the national debt by
the Democratio party." : "
