His parents, who are well off in this world's goods, used every means to nsrertuin his whereabouts, hut failed. A few weeks ago the wretched-looking individual made his appearance in tho woods near the Staid homestead. Neighbors who caught a glimpse of the man in the woods say it is rowoll Stnlil, hut no one is nine ui como near to him, as lie acts like a wild animal and flees before any nppronelt. ilo is par tially naked and has been seen to eat twigs and leaves. An effort will bo made to cunturc the demented young man, when he will bo sent to tho state asylum. Only a few years ago Powell was one of tho most promising young men in me ncigiiuornooa and was quite a beau. His wild, nude and half-starved condition is frightful to every person living in tho neighborhood. A Plain Statement of Facts.

General Simon Iluckner. who re innined and surre:ide"oil Fort Donel son to Grant after F?oyd nnd Pillow ran away, was married at Kiclunond recently to Miss Delia Claiborne, one of the society bells of that city. He is 00 and she 27 years of age. Fome of the incidents directly nd indirectly connected with General Huckncr's ca reer are full of ronnntic interest. They aro thus sketched in the New York World: lie was always a conspicuous man in society and when he was made a General in the Confederate army he was the popular idol of th& day through out all tho Southwest a popu larity which was intensified even by what was considered his misfor tune at Fort Donclson. Handsome, brave, with a line limire and gallant bearing, a perfect horseman and an accomplished mm of the world, he was the typical young cavalier of the South. He was marriel some time be fore the war to a Miss Kingsbury, who died after a few years of married life, nnd whose brother was an odiecr in the regular army. Lieutenant Kings bury and his sister were joint heirs to a large fortune, mainly in Chicago real estate, llefoieleavingforhispost with the army in Tennessee General Hack lier had an interview with his brother-in-law, and made over t o him all of Mis.lluckner's est ate. This was to pro tect it from confiscation, but it was verbally understood between them that the property was to bo held in trust. If General Euckner sur ived tho issue of tho approaching conllict it was to bo returned to him. Ifnot.it was to be made over to his only child, Lillio Buckner. Lieutenant Kincsbury fell mortally wounded in ono of tho lirst battles in Virginia, localizing too late that he had made no testementary provision by which Mrs. lhicknor's property should not go in with his own estate he told to a comrado the story of his agreement with his sister's husband. For some reason his dying wishes were either not communicaied to or wero disregarded by his wife, his only heir, and she entered into possession of the entire property. The warclosed. Gen eral Buckner camo back to Louisvillo and asked of Mrs. Kingsbury tho re storation of his daughter's estate. Mrs. Kingsbury refused to consider the question, and a suit of recovery was brought. It was one of the great cases of tho day, and was finally, af ter years of litigation, fully decided in General lluckner's favor. His counsel was Robert Wooley, of Louisville, a brother of Cqlonef Charles AVooley, of Cincinnati, and a near con nection by marriago with SulHo Ward, the famous Southern beauty. It was said that his feo was $1 00,000. General Buckner at once began to ex tensively improve his Chicago proper ty. The fire came, and in a day he was poorer by half a million dollars. When, however, his daughter married Morris Belknap, of Louisville, two years ago, she was ono of tho great heiresses of the South. Mrs. Kingsbury lived in Newport after her husband's death. She was a beautiful and charming woman, and remained a widow only for a few years. Then she married General Lawrence, eldest son of ex-Governor Lawrence, the richest man in Rhode Island. It will bo remembered that, after tho peril which the arrival of General Butler's troops barely averted. the cadets and appliances of tho Naval School at Annapolis wero removed to Newport. Tho young and lovely Mrs. Kingsbury was easily tho acknowl edged bello among tho impressible cadets, and when tho classof 1878 was graduated it was generally understood that she had engaged herself to Hugh McKee. a member of that class from Kentucky and a brother of Major George McKee, of the ordnance, who is now stationed at Sandy Hook. Hugh McKeo was a marvelous young fellow in his way. Ilo was bravo to reck lessness, with magnetic elements of character which made him not only tho most popular man ofhis class, hut even, without tho circumstances of his tragic death, tho best remembered of tho young officers of the navy. 1 le was killed whilo leading n small detachment up the walls of a Coram fort during our short but decisive wnr with that people somo twelve years ngo, and a memorial tablet to his memory hangs on tho walls of the academy chapel at Annapolis ono of a dozen commem orating tho most heroic acts jn tho history of our navy, Tho story of what just preceded his death is told by ono of his associates. When Hugh McKeo was ordered to tho Pacific squadron ho left theso shores witli tho promise from Mrs. Kingsbury that she would becomo his wife on his return. Ono day, in Nagas aki harbor, tho American mail was brought to tho mess-room of his ship. A yoiing litlitenant looked up from a letter ho Avns reading with tho ejacu lation: "Say, boys, guess who is mar riedl" McKeo was standing just back of him, fronting a classnmtowho knew of his engagement. "It's Mrs. Kings bury," continued the first speaker. "She wasmnrried to General La wrenco a month ago." Tho narrator says that McKeo made one step forwnrd, his handsomo fnco distorted, his teeth set and his fists clinched as if ho would striko tho read er. Then ho recovered himself, wect above and walked tho deck nil that night. It was shortly before that timo that an Amoricnn trading ship, tho General Sherman, whilo ascending tho Piengyangrivor, in Corea, was attacked by natives, destroyed and her officers nnd crew murdered. Admiral Rodgeru started with his fleet from Nagasaki immediately on receipt of tho news, sailing for Corea. Arnvingnt thofortH in tho rivor Van, a force of niarinoa nnd sailors woro landed. McKeo boggod to bojmt inconimandofa detachment, rushod in advaucu of hw men up the mud walls of tho fort and fell (load in side piorcod through tho hoart by u Coroan epour. The lmploris denouncement of tho marriago to General Albert Gallatin Lawrence will be recalled. Mrs. Law rence a few years since eloped with Mr. Van Ness, an attache ot tho Belgian Legation to this country. General Law rence procured a divorce. Mr. Van Ness married Mrs. Lawrence, and was sent by his Government to Kgypt, wIrto ho died. Mrs. Lawrcncestillhas a large income from her money of the Kingsbury estate an income which was not so mucii unpaired uy mo uni cago lire as was Miss Buckner's. An Kctindoriaii City. GunynquirCor. of Chicago Inter-Occnn. There is no fresh water in town, but all the people use is brought on rafts from a place twenty miles up tho river, and is peddled about theplaco in casks carried upon the backs of donkeys or men. The donkevs all wear pan talettes not, however, from motives of modesty, as the native children all go entirely naked, and the men and women nearly so but to protect their legs and bodies from the gadlly, which bites tiercel v here. Bread as well as water is peddledabout the town intho same way, but vegetables are brought down the river on rafts and in dugouts, which aro hauled up on the beach in long rows, and present a busy and in teicsting scene. Guayaquil is famous for tho finest pineapples in the world great juicy fruits, as white as snow and as sweet ashonev. It isalsofamousforitshats and hammocks, made of thepita fiber, a sort of palm. The well known Pana ma hatsareallmadein Guayaquil, but got their name because Panama mer chants formerly controlled tho trade. They aro braided under water, by native women, of strands often twelvonnd fifteen feet long, anil lino ones are very expejisive. A woman often takes two and three weeks to braid a single hat, which sells fori?o or ?i, ami wears forever. I saw a hat in Guayaquil which is said to bo worth $2 ."ill. It was made of a single straw or liber, as lino as thread and as soft as silk, and tho woman who inado it was engaged four months in tho work. Tho quinino trade has almost died out, as tho forests of Ecuador have been stripped of the bark, andtho trees have thus been destroyed. In tho meantime tho trees have' been intro duced into the East Indies by tho British Government, where they have been cultivated with great success, thus securing a better quality of qui nino with less trouble. Quinine, or Peruvian bark, was discovered by tho Jesuits in Ecuador in 1 OHO, ami was named "Chinchona," after tho Coun tess of Chinchona, tho wile of the Vico roy. A Queer City in the Air. Tho Pueblo of Acomn, situated nine ty miles west of Albuquerque, is one of the most remarkable communities in Now Mexico or tho United States. In tho middle of a valley six miles in width stands a buttc, and on the top of this is Acomn. Eight hundred peo- Xlo aro living there, and they and their ancestors havo gathered thero tho sum of their possessions for nearly three centuries. This butto is one of tho many that aro remnants of a mesa that has been worn away by tho erosion of the ages, and survives only in flat-topped mountains here anil there. Tho valleys between aro fertile, and untold generations ot men have seen them covered with men and flocks of sheep. Some timo in tho seventeenth century tho Laguna or valley Indians niado war upon tho Acomns for tho possession of tho country, and tho latter being tho weaker, occupied this butte ns a de fensive position believed to bo impreg nable. Their judgment has ueen abundantly vindicated. It has proved a Gibraltcr of strength and safety. Tho comparison is not inappropriate, and in approaching it from tho north I was struck with tho rcsemblanco to tho pictures I havo seen of that grim old lortress that frowns over tho strait of tho Mediterranean. Tho height above tho valley is nearly four hun dred feet, and tho walls in sovcral places aro nearly perpendicular. Thero aro two means of ascent, ono by a flight of steps cut in tho fnco of the wall and rising at nn nngloofforty-fivo degrees, and the other by a fissuro in tho rocks leading up into the heart of tho mountain. Both ways havo been trodden by human feet until tho steps nre hollowed out like shallow troughs. Either ono is exceedingly difficult, and neither is tolerably safe. Women nt the Fnll of Khartoum.

LKARNLXd 1IKR LKSSON. HY KMIl.Y I.KXNOW "I want you to meet Gordon this summer, Helen,'' Rob said, confiden tially. "I am sure you two would like each other. I've told him a great deal about my pretty, intellectual cousin, nnd he is very anxious" "Really, he does me an honor," Helen said, hastily, with the slight arch in her slender neck which always followed the mention af an eligible man. "It is right kind of you, Bobby, to plan so much pleasure for me; but I hardly expect to be home this sum mer. I've just about made up my mind to attend the summer school at Amherst." "What! You going to leave Canon diet, and study all summer in that prosy Yankee town? My dear Helen "If I go abroad in the fall, I should like to know something about Gor man." "Hul whydon'tyou studyathoine?" "I'nder whom, jiray?" "I think you might find somebody." Helen shook her head. "I've tried, "she said quietly. "There is no ono hero whom I would think of having." "Oli, pshaw!" said Bob. "That's too bad. I thought wo would have such a nice tiniethissummer." "You will anyhow," Helen said, with a sly smile. "Alice is coming for sure, and I shall be out of the way. Thero will be no disagreeable third party." "Rut what shall I do with Gordon?" "Find him a girl to flirt with." "lie's not that kind." "Oh!" incredulously. "Isn't ho?" Then I think you'd better send him word not to come." "I've hnlf a mind to. Confound tho German!" His face looked very cross just, then; but tho next moment a light seemed to break over it. "I say, Helen," ho began, eagerly, then stopped short, as though a sec ond idea had arrested him. "Well?" "Nothing," ho replied. And he began straightway to whistle under his breath, while Helen gathered up her books and went into thehouso. "There is no good in spoiling a woman to mako a student," Bob muttered. "If over two mortals wero mado for each other, she and Leon Gordon were. What a sight it would bo to see them hang each other in tho matri monial noose!" It was just a week after this conver sation that Rob camo into tho library brimming over with exultation. Helen sat by tho window in onoof thosecool, gray gowns that aro so becoming. She was writing a letter of inquiry to tho principal of tho summer school at Amherst, concerning terms and hours, and items of instruction. "Hero's luck, Helen!" ho cried, flourishing a letter aloft. "A real live German professor coining to visit us." "What!" "Why," he wont on, breathlessly, "when I was over at Winnebec yester day, I ran against Professor Holstein in tho station. He's a mighty nice fellow, and is writing up a work on philology. He's had the second degreo at Harvard, and isono of your real heavy guns on the languages. " "Does ho tvach?" Helen asked,with interest. "I think ho would. He's not well off those German students seldom are. Ho was hunting up somo quiet little place where hecould hoard cheap ly anil quietly this summer whilo ho writes his book. I suggested Canon (hot, and I havo just got a note from him, saying that ho is booked at Mahlon's." t "Perhaps ho won't want to tench a beginner," said Helen, dubiously. "Leave that to 1110," said Rolf, confi dently. "I am going to bring him up hero to supper, and I proirtiseyouho'Il moot you easily." Helen put on a bewitching gown of embroidered Canton silk. Therccouy bo nothing prettier than she was bo hind a trayful of bhio Doulton cups and a jug of whipped cream. "Have you always lived in this coun try, professor?" who asked, pouring out his tea with ft'iio womanly guilo, "I was born here," ho aiiHwered, watching her quietly over a pair of gold-bowed spectacles; "but I havo spout some time abroad." "And you aro very fond of your lan guage?" queried Helen. "Most Ger mans aro." Sho was wondering just then if Nature- had trained his board in that jirotty way, or if ho was vain enough to frequent a barber's. "I am vory fond of tho Gorman," ho said, warmly. "I iimm! to lunch it a little, and if J hud moru lime, J should liku nothing butter. 1 thought ouuo that I inliM gutupaoluasthls slimmer in tho village. Do u tjjitilc it would bo worth while trying. Miis Darrngh?" "I can promise jou one pupil." she! said, eagerly. , "Helen is'going in for German herself, professor," Bob explained. "Indeed?" he said, smiling. "And if you would be kind enough to bother with nio."shosnid.npj)ealingly, "I should like very much to have you tench me. I am going abroad in the fall, and-" "It would give me great pleasure." the professor answered, politely. And it was so arranged that tho les sons would begin in a day or so. They got on amazingly, for Helen had lost sight of the man in the in structor, and for once, in the society of the opposite sex, she acted out her sweet, natural self. 'fhe lessons grew longer every day. Tho professor read to her from the German poets, and there was so much loitering over the dictionary, that Rob akcd indiscretely whether the work on philology wasn't sulTcring. "I suppose vou know, Helen." he .-aid. one morning, in a casual way, "that Professor Holstein has a wife and seven children?" She fairly gasped at this. That young man! with such pleasant, artless eyes! And he'd never said a word to her of his family! What a cold-blooded wretch he must be! Her heart fairly thrilled with anger. "How dared he deceive me?" sho cried, angrily. Hob looked up in surprise. "1 suppose he never thought it would make the least dilTerenee to vou," he said. "Why should it?" "Oh, for no reason in the world! Rut I don't think a married man has any right to go about with any girl as ho has been doing. Wbv didn't vou tell me. Rob?" "I? Why, ho hasn't been flirting with you, has he, Helen?" "Certainly not!" was tho haughty reply. "Men cannot dirt unless womeu encourage them. Rut I think you might have said something about this before." " 'My eye, Pip! Wot larks!' "iuot ed Rob, going ollintoagaleof laughter, the instant his cousin was out of sight. "Tho plot thickens. Bring on your villain." Helen had taken her hat from the hall-rack, and gone out into the sun shine. Sho could not explain to her self why she T'elt so indignant at Pro fessor Holstein, or why she passed with averted ga.o tho spot they had chosen for their morning readings. "Ah! how do you do?" a pleasant voice called to her, in the simple tier man phrase she had already mastered. "I thought you were never coining. I have got such a pretty little poem, which I cut out of the Gartenlaubo! Shall I read it?" "Certainly if you wish." He was too eager to bo checked by her chilling reserve. In a deep, melo dious voice, ho began to read to her a pretty spring idyl. It had a great deal of lovo in it, and a great deal of sor row. "Don't you like that?" hesaid.look ingupjust in time to sou her tears. "Ah, I knew you would!" Do put out his hand, but drew it back again. "That is what I should like," ho wont on, earnestly. "I should like to wan der away off to somo wild spot, and live thero with ono I loved with you, Helen-" "Professor Holstein, you forget your self!" "Forget? Nol Do not start from me, Helen. I lovo you with my whole soul!" "Sir,"shocried, passionately, "your lovo is an insult! Howdureyouspeak of such a thing to mo?" "Helen, what aro you saying?" "I say that you have no right toad dress mo so, sir. How dare you take advantage of tho privileges of hospi tality? How daro you abuse your rights as a teacher to-to--" "Hear mo, Helen! I havo deceived you." "I know it. I am quito well aware, sir, of who and what you are. tio I leavo mo this instant! I never want to seo you again. I despise such perfidy as yours. Go!" "Ah you say!" ho said, turning very pnlo: "I never meant to do anything wrong. If I havo erred, Miss Darragh, I am punished for tho fault. I do lovo you with my whole soul. Good-byl" He strode away quickly, and when ho camoupon Bob, at tho garden gato, ho said hoarsely: , "I was afraid it wouldn't turnout well, old boy. Helen has found 1110 out and will havo nothing to do with 1110." "Tho deuce!" Bob exclaimed. "Who told her Gordon?" "I don't know," ho answered gloomi ly. "It was a bad day for mo, Bob, when I camo to Canonchet. I shall never caro for any other woman, and now " "I'm sorry, Gordon," Bob replied, "I rather thought Helen would see tho joko, after tho first shock was over." "It doesn't seoni to strike her that way," said Gordon, withabittersmilo. "Good-by, old boy! I think I'd bet ter get away from hero as soon aj I can. "I'm sorry "Rob began. "Nover mind," said his friend, brave ly. "It wasn't your fault, I shall leave Canonchet to-night. Good-by!"i Rob walked with him a little vay, and camo back quito cast down in spirits. "I had no idea she'd fly off in that way," ho muttered. "Girls aro queor creatures. I would havo sworn sho was in lovo with him, and decpgpough for anv emergency. Helen!" Sho was just going in by tho garden gaio. "I want to speak t you a moment." "Well?" "Don't you think you wero a littlo rough on Gordon?" "On whom?" "On Gordon. Wo only meant it as a littlo joke, and it was I who put him up to it. You woro so opposed to men, and I thought you wouldQm mwo to lie friends if you could only meet." "My dear Rob," shocriod, "1 haven't tho slightest idea what you are talking uboutl" "Gordon lias gone away," ho pur sued. "He's awfully out up about it, uud I'm sure, Holon" "Gordon gono away!" ohe echoed. "What do you mean?" "Why," said Rob, somewhat impa tiently, "he did not mean any harm when he came hero in the character of a German professor, which of courso he isn't, though his mother was a Gor man, and her nnino was Holstein." "Do you mean to say," cried Helen, changing color, "that Professor Hol stein is your friend Leon Gordon?" "Why, ho said you knew all aboub it. There is a Professor Holstein, who is writing a work on philology. He is Gordon.s uncle; but he's a middle aged man, with a wife and seven children." "Rob," cried Helen, bursting into tears, which fairly took his breath awav, "I'll never forgive you for this never!" Sho rushed past him into tho house, and dropped down in a littlo tearful heap on the sofa. "Oh, if I'd only gono to Amherst!" she moaned, quito unconcious that somo one in the doorway was regard ing her with a startled gae. "I I bog your pardon!" stammered Gordon, the ex-professor. "I left my German dictionary in here, and Rob said Helen!" ho was down on bin knees beside her, holding one of her hanrts "can you ever forgive me? I do not ask or hope for anything, though my life will bo very empty now without you. If you will only say that you will not hate me, that you will think of me sometimes kindly; I shall trv to be content." "I think of you entirely too often now," she said', witha final sob, assho. shook out a verv wet handkerchief and. looked at him through her tears. Something in her face must havegiv on him hope, for one arm was slipped around her, and ho drew the lit tie, pas sive hand, which bo held, to his lips.
