The river divided the farm, and it was
necessary to visit the lot on the other
side; there was a bridge a mile and a

got.d foal just down Ly the bank
which was always used when the wa

after considerable urin; he entered

overwhelming both borne aud man.
They both rose but grandfather hail

along by the powerful current, he
caught the drooping branch of a large
sycamore tree, and was kooq wife from

horse pursued his journey toward the

seems, discovered bis master clinging

THE DOUBLE ELOPEMENT.
The villaaro of E-
waa one of
the nmny mining towns in the interi
or of California, and in thin village
dwelt Dr. Hammond nnd his family.
They were noted for their kind hospi
tality, and for tho interest they took
in the general affairs of the village.
So it very often happened that their
only daughter, Artie, was tho bello of
many social parties. There it waH
that sho repeatedly met it young man
by tho name of Charles lJavoy, and
his faucy for Miss Artie's pretty faco,
blue eyes and dark browu curls, kept
him constantly by her sido.
But what 1 was going to tell you
was this that tho Doctor had made
up his mind to spend tho summer up
near Lake Tahoe, so he could have u
fine time hunting and fishing during
tho heated term, and ns a matter of
course, ho wanted to take his family
with him, for he could not think of
leaviug them down there iu tho terri
bly hot wcttther of summer.
Now Artie did not like thii idea at
all, so, after taking a good cry about
it, the came iuto the parlor where
Mrs. Hammond sat, and said:
"Now mamma, this is too bad; just
too think of us going away off up jnto
tho mountains where wo can't see any
thing but Indians and sago brush. X
shall die, mamma, I know I shall, if
you take me away off up there."
i.' .o, my dear, said jus. Ham
mond, gently, "and to tell tho truth,
Artie, 1 shall be glad to get you off up
there where you can't do so much run
ning around. I am about sick of this
going all tho time.
"Well, I'm not," said IHss Artie,
with an independent toss of her pret
ty head as sho went off to the window.
She had not stood thero long when
she saw some one coming up tho little
lane which led to the house. Then
stio turned to her mother and said:
" Oh, mamma, Charley Bavey
is comiug here."
"Its, just as I espeeted, you cant
think of anything but Charley Bavey,
now," Ktid Mrs. Hammond, a she
h ft the room.
She soon heard Artie and Charley
taikiug very low together, so she bo
gun to wonder what they were saying
and liiia.Iv she went to the door to
lUten. She heard Charley say:
"Yes, darling, I will como with the
uuury tusi at aarK io-morrw, so we
go and gt mamtid tu a short
Your folks won't think of such
a thing until it it's tuo late."
"iiut, Charley, suppose papa won't
forgive uk," tud Artie.
"Oh, little's no danger but he will;
and you'll go won't you, Artie? Ouly
think what a heavy, lonesome life it
will be without you, uarling."
As Artie looked up into a very lov
ing pair of hazel eyes, she smi.ingly
said, "Yea Charley."
"Now good-nigut darling, and by
thiii time to-morrow ni;ht you'Jl Lie
my darling little wife."
baying this, Charley hissed ber aud
Now, a1 Mrs. Hammond had been
listening all the time, she had heard
everything Charley said. So hho said
to herself, ironically, "your dear little
wife by this time to-morrow night.
Oh, yes, we'll see about that."
Uut when Artie came out her moth
er was bitting at the table, sewing.
She looked up and asked :
"Well, Artie, baa Charley gone so
"Yes, mamma," was all Artio said
as she left the room.
Tho next day passed off, and just at
dark a buggy drove up to tho gate.
"Now," thought Mrs. Hammond,
"I'll show them a trick that's worth
So she put on Artio's cloak aud hat
and ran down to tho gate. A gentle
man very gallantly helped her into the
buggy, but never spoke a word.
"Well," thought she, "he s afraid
to speak for fear Artie's father and
mother would will hear him. Ahem!"
So away they went, and 3Irs. Ham
mond t-at, there thinking what a uico
trick she had played on Artie by run
ning off with Charley. Then she be
gan to wonder if this was the way he
treated Artie when they went out rid
ing; and next what would tbe doctor
say? But what puzzled her most was
that they were going in the opposite
direction from what she bad expected.
So at last she said :
"Well, Charley, darling, hadn't we
better go home.''
Imagine her surnr'.so to bear tbe
doctor s voice answer:
"What! Maggie, is that you? "What
in the name of all that's good, bad
and indifferent are you doing here?"
"Indeed! aud I should like to know
whom you thought you had in here, if
not me? answered Mrs. Hammond.
"Oh, I thought it was Artie."
"And what in the world ever put
such a notion into your head, as to
take Artie out at this time of night ?
"Well the fact is, Maggie, as I sat
on tbe porch last evening, I overheard
Charley and Artie talking about run
ning off to get married, and so I just
thought I'd save Charley the trouble,
and take Artie out for a ride. I be
gan to think she was keeping very
"That ia just -what I heard," said
Mrs. Hammond, "and my object in
going with Charley was the same as
yours in taking Artie off."
"We are a couple of pretty fools to
be eloping in this way, but here we
are at home again."
Saying this the ; doctor helped .bis
wife out of tbo -buggy, and then went
into the bouse. One glance at the
empty & rooms convinced them Artie
was gone, they . could easily guess
where. ': Bo they made up their minds
to make tbe best tf it, and wait for the
runaways to come home, . !
And the next morning, when Mr,
and Mrs. Bavey carne home to implore
forgiveness for running off to get mar
ried, they could npt understand the
mischievous twinkle in Dr. Ham
mond's eyes as he very readily forgave
them, and said:
"Certainly, children ; I ra& off with
mother once and did'nt know it."
Charley and Artie looked from one
to the other, and abked : "How? when?
Tho doctor only laughed, and shook
his head as though the story was too
good to tell, and that was all they
ever could get out of ban.
A Ui:.UAUIi tltXK NIIISIT.
Editors Lave a first rate time in Tex
as, xiiolauiesol a town out there
have gi-en to tho editor of tho paper
an embroidered febirt which contains a
pictorial history of Texas, including
tho war with Mexico, and the Meeting
of tho first Legislature, and also pic
tures oi the fruits and cereals of the
State, all worked in red worsted. The
editor never wore a shirt in his life,
and he thought it was a banner for
the temperance procession which was
to come off tho next week. So ho
made a littlo speech of thanks, in
which he said he would "lling it out
forever to the breezes of heaven, that
they might kiss its folds, and that un
til his hand palsied it should never be
trailed in the dust never!" Tho la
dies didn't understand him; and when
he talked about its trailing they blush
ed, and said they were very aorry thet
made it too Jo:,g! But a cummitteo
itmn took the editor aside and explain
ed tho shirt to him in a whisper, and
tho next day ho appeared at the office
with the shirt mounted over his coat,
und wroto four columns of explana
tion for big paper. Tho bhirt is much
admired by the boys of tho town, and
whenever tho editor goes out for a
walk they follow him in regiment
studying the hintory of Texas and the
tine arts off tho buck of it.

but once. It was during a visit to the
Ilo of Wight, whither bhe went to
meet the Queen. The royal pair, at

ladies and gentlemen, went one morn
ing to an mstituuon of learning
(wijicit ha 1 been established for the
poor by Her Maiestv, cud in which
she took great interest), to hear an ex
amination of the scholars. In course
of the exercise, an urchin, upon one
oi tito tit-.trtht uencues, mo-st irrever

royal visitor, calling tho youthful af-

Salem Linseed Oil Works. We
have ascertained some facts in regard
to the manufacture of linseed oil at
tho Salem Works, which, as they are
a branch of homo industry, may be of
interest to the general reader. The
mills ara now running night and day
aud use about (J,0U0 pounds of flax
seed in 21 hours. The Calcutta flax
seed is exclusively used, for which
they pay tho farmer $270 per
hundred pounds. Oregon raises
more than enough to supply this
mill tho balance being chiefly ex
ported to Benchley's oil mills in
San Francisco. The mills turn out
on an average 225 gallons per day,
wjich is jobbed to wholesale dealers
at 1 23 per gallon. But little of
this is exported, the demand of Ore
gon and Washington Territory being
sufficient for about the entire sujmly.
From 7 to 10 men are employed in
the Works. The green tow from the
mill is sold to the Salem Woolen Man
ufactory, where it is manufactured in
to cloth for upholstery purposes.
The long tow is exported to San Fran
cisco, where it is used for similar pur
poses. The oil cake is sold to farmers
for tho use of their stock. The capi
tal employed in the works is $75,000.
The following curious incident oc
curred in Alfred, Me., the other day:
George Roberts, living at Alfred Gore,
dislocated his shoulder, another gen
tleman took him in his wagon to carry
him to tbe village, where his shoulder
might be - put in place. J ust as they
came to the Dana place tbe horse was
frightened and both genlemen were
thrown from tho wagon. The gentle
man with Mr. Roberts bad his collar
bone broken, bis ribs fractured, and
also sustained severe internal injuries,
while, curiously enough, the injured
shoulder of Mr. Roberts was reset.
