eye met those of the captive bird. A

After he doubled over seven lingers an
attendant in the museum came up and
asked him what it was all about-

taking his eyes from the owl, and he
kept on around till he had closed the
other finger and both thumbs. Then
he halted, aud still keeping his eyes

by some ladies who had gotten near her
that she bore some secret sorrow, per

I was chatting witu the captain of an

when there approached a deputation of
north of Ireland emigrants. They came
to complain ot an "extraordinary mess"
which ihat day had been served in the
steerage for dinner. The spokesman
was a'voluble person, who interlarded
the narrative of his grievance with easy
familiar allusions to the powers and ter

were exercised in the cause of the "poor

to the steerage steward.

head of the deputation, pointing, with
an expression of horror, to the little
green berries in the succulent sauce.
"Doyethiuk emigrant passengers are

But by whom?
The window overlooking the garden
was raised. The footprints of several
! men were visible, and the box upon ,
which they stood in order to reach the j
window was still in place. It was evi- j
dent that after the poor girl had met her
death her body was quietly carried back, !
passed through the window and the re- i
main arranged upon the sofa with an
eve to every detail which might have an
effect. Not an article of jewelry was
missing. Everything was in place.
But Sherman's men were entering the
city. The gallant confederates were re
treating. Confusion reigned supreme.
In the general stampede which followed
lesser sensations were forgotten. When
at last the smoke of battle had cleared
away and people returned to rebuild
their fortunes the fate of the murdered
woman was recalled and three theories
One was that during the ball a shrap

and, exploding, killed Miss Emma. The
second was that on her way home she
had been outraged and murdered by her
escort. The third was that she was a

identity, and that she had all along been
furnishing Sherman with important in

Italy has twenty-one universities
one more than Germany, 'llicy are
divided into two classes, those wnich
receive state suonort and those which
do not. The iirst clasa include Turin.
Genoa. Pavia, Tadua, Pisa, Itologna,
Home. Naples. Palermo and Mussina.
Naples has the largest number of
ntudeuU (3.9)l). while the smallest
number (thirty-nine) is found at Fer
rara. which was mice for Italy what
Weimar was to Germany, the seat of
the createst minds of the ago, and
whirh. therefore, desneratelr clings to
tho nrivileire of being a univ-rsitv town.
Turin has Home l.if'X), llologua
1.160 students. All the others ex-ept-
iur Pavia have fewer than 1.1XW.
Futile effort have been repeatedly made
to reduce this uselessly largo number of
high schools. Theology is not taught
at any Italian university, but lectures
nn ehureh historv are inelittleU some
time iu tho philosophic course.
