She wore blue, and had " a wealth"
of golden hair. The captive sport"
was faultlessly dressed" in full black,
garnished with diamonds. and had 'a Iov

meeting was followed, as is apt to be the
case, by others, and, to tell th- tale
briefly, wound up in a cecret marriage.
All went oij Muoothly for a time, great,

masked in secret as it was, seemed to

by the daughter, and .finally entreaties,

an explosion. All was contested, and
the horror-stricken parent was dumb

A eorresfiomleut of the Saint I,oui.
lirpiiblicait writes about Ahilene, the
great cattle tir.rket of the West: I'oiir
years ago the idea was cone ived ami
carried info ex cirtion of supplying the
est and North with Texas beef. The
tir-t drove. of cattU reached Abilene in
1S57. and the result of the ex; erimeut
proving n uiumrauve so tar beyond

others naturally became engagetl in the
business. The Kate-as Pacific Railway
fostered and eneouragisl this new arm
of industry, until it has rown to its
prest-nt immense projections. From
the official records of the general
freight office, we ascertain that this
road transported last year l.'U.-lO head
of Texas (Tattle; and fn;m present in
dications these figures will be more
than doubled this yeir. The receipts at
Abilene, Hrooklyn and Salina, already
exceed 80 000 head, and each day adds
thousand to the grand total. Since
the inception of this immense busine-s.
Abilene and Texas cattle have been
synonymous, and in consequence, from
an insignificant f roniier railro id tati n.
the tdace has grown to one of groat
; irn jiortance, and is a household word to
every cattle dealer and drover in the
country. Fh vated as it is, 1 .0.r7 feet
above tide water, and situated in a
section unsprjiassed for jaturago and
wafer, this jtoint enjoys peculiar ad van
tages for the cattle business. Its ele
vation and fixo dotu from brush and un
dergrowth, secures to Abilene the Texas
Cattle trade for years to come, as the
adj icent country is rich with nutriti
oils grasses, and is tree from the annoy ;
anes of flies arid ticks, the great jn-.ts j
of cattle. The prejudice heretofore
existing against Texas cattle, we are I
glad to see, is fast dying out; and the
rieh pasture hinds f Missouri. Illinois;
and Indiana, as well as ('ooiado ami!
Wyoming are fast filbng up with
this hardy breed. Millions of ooll ns
are realized eveiy ear by piiM h i-mg
Texas cattle, holding them over during1
the winter, and realizing upon the n tin
following sprint;. The market has not
fairly opened yet, but we hear of some
sales of beeves at from 2 to .', stock
cattle at less figures.
A liARf E Rope All account of

manufacture, will rcove .nteresting to
the American reader. According to

yards long, measures 5J inches in cir
cumference, and weighs over 00 tons.
Made of patent charcoal wire laid
around a hemp center, the rope consists
of six strands, with ten wires in each
strand. Each wire measures l.'JJtjO
yards, so that the entire length of the
wire reaches the enormous total of more
than 412 miles. To thi jH to be
added the length of yarn used for the
center, namely, 07 thread-, and giving
a total length of about 230 miles.
Adding together the wire and yam.
there is a grand total of 035 miles of
material, all going to make up a mon
ster wire and hemp rope of little under
six miles long.
