THB FALLOW FUU>. Tbc days iccro bright, and the year was young, Aa the warm sun cllmed the gtiy<; And a thousand flowers their ccn«ers swung, And the larks were slngtng ht|;h; For an nngel swept on silent wing To the grave whore the dead earth lay; And tbc blister dawned as the angel Spring Rolled the rugged stone away. Then the fields grow green with springing corn, And some with (lowers wore bright; And each dny came with an earlier dawn, And a fuller, sweeter light. So the year grew older noon by noon, Till the reapers came one day, And In the light of a barvent moon Tlii:y bore tbc sheaves away. But one field lay from the rest apart, AH Bilont, lunc, and dead; And tlic rude share ribbed Us quivering heart Till all I'cs life had ficd. And never n lilndo, and never a flower On lis silent ridges stirred; The sunslilue called, and the passing shower- It aiiaworud never a word. It soojncd as If sonic curse of 111 "Were hrnoding In the air, Yet tbu fallow field did the JInster's will Though never a blade It bare; For Itturncd Its furrowed face to heaven. Catching the light and rain: It was liecplii"; Us tfa'jbath- one In seven— That It inlgliL grow rich again. And tbc fallow Held had its harvest moon, Kcnping a golden spoil; And It learned Its ever brightening noon That rest for (lod was toll. —Good Words. VVilAT DID THE DOG SEE? Montague observes, "things unknown arc tlic principal and true subject of impo.stiire, forasmuch as in the lirst place their strangeness lends to tliein credit, and moreover, by not beiuf; .subjected to our ordinary dis- cour.sc, tliey deprive us of the means to question and dispute them." The incident I am about to relate is strictly true in all save that I have appropriated a (ictilious name for the parties involved in the narrative. • In tlio summer of 18G7 I was journeying leisurely tlirough Western Ohio on liorseback, when lato one afternoon I discovered my horse had .suddenly become lamo in one of his forelegs. Dismounting, I made an examination willi tlio purpose of discovering tlio prcci.so location of the injnry, but, failing in this, I flung the re ns over my arm and led my poor beast toward a farmhouse which was near at hand. I found the owner, Abel iSlielly, seated on the porch, smoliing his pipe, with his wife sitting by, enjjaged in knitting. Introducing niysclf and explaining my situation, 1 inquired if ho could accommodate mo with a resting pliicc until I could resume my journey. He acquiesced at once, assuring me that I was perfectly welcome, and, presontin"; mo to his wife, laid down his pipe and began to examine the feet of my horse. "I Clin see nothing at present," ho remarked, "tliat indicates the seat of the injury, but I'll put him in the Invrn, and if he docs not improve by to -morrow we'll determine what is to bo done." Loading tlie animal away, he shortly returned to the house. In the meantime I liad entered into conversation witli Mrs. Shelly, who was a very well informed person, but I judged by the remarkable pallor of her faee that she was not in particularly gi ;od ' health. Mr. Shelly conducted ino to a room, where, having deposited my saddle.bags and taken a refreshing wasli, I returned to the porch and was soon engaged in an interesting conversation about crops and the general topics of the day. I discovered my host to be an unusually bright and woU-road farmer, with a certain seriousness about him that forbade anything like unseemly familiarity and which was sure to inspire re- .spect in a considerable degree. Ho WHS an Kiistorii man l )y birtli, but had Ijcou settli 'd in the West for twenty years. IJeyond his wife he had no Viiniily, aiul it struck me as being .•^omevvliat singular that I saw no liiuids about tlu: place save an old uegru, who was slowly performing .=onio duty in the cow yard. After a' lioarty supper and a smoke with u ciirn -eo)) pipe 1 went with Mr. Shelly lo till', .'liable to take a look at my horse. In turning an angle of the building lu! grasped me by the arm and ])II I 1(M1 nie (juiokly aside. His action slartl <.'i[ lue for an instant, but tlu: lurxl ifi()niLnrt ~r pcrueived ills motive. Chained near the jiath was one ;it' the most immense and ferocious- I '.wikiiig lunslill's 1 ever beheld. A iuaguilie (!nt creature to look upon, but a terror to meet if one were unprepared. "Down C!aptain!" coraniauded my companion, as the dog was in the act ril' spriusriiig to liis feet. The animal rcsumeir his eroucliihg attitude, and .Mr. .'5helly went on to say; "That dog is inviiliiablo to mo as a guard, lie is absolutely fearless, and will shrink from no danger, no matter how appalling it may apiieifr. Hut his fe- rneious nature compels mo to keep liim chained (hiring the da\', for I vcr- il}' believe he would kill a stranger if be eneounlered him in the place. " J 'J-ln -i ^iartainly—a_splendid _crea5- lure," I remarked looking back, "I v .'ould like to make friends with him, I'lir 1 liaveauinnatefondnessfordogs." .Mr. Shelly shook liis bead. "Don't iryit," lie said, "l wouldn 't have you a]i )iroaeh him under any consideration. That dog will tlirow an unruly Hteer and hold him so securely that be can 't rise. An ordinary man v .Duld stand but a poor ehanco of gct- tiii"; away from him alive." (Jii our way back from tlio stable wo ;igain passed Captain's kennel and [Kiusud to look at him. Mr. Shelly putted ills head, wliile the animal fctrotehcd the lenj ^th of liis chain toil .aid me, regarding mo all the while with a look that seemed to bo any- tiiinirbut unfriendly. There seemed to bo so lioncst a purpose in the brute's eyes tlat I instinctively put forth my Jmud and laid it caressingly on his Inigo liead, when to the amazement of bis luaster the creature actually licked 3iiy hand in token of amity. I really laiighed at tlio consternation depicted in Mr. Slielly's countenance. "Well," lie exclaimed, drawing a long breath, " if I had not witnessed the thing I never could have believed it. Why, that animal is a tiger in disposition, and I never believed him capable of friendship for any but my wife and self. Old Reuben, the negro, is torrilicd when he comes in tlio vicinity of that dog. His demeanor toward you is certainly very surprising." -It was tlio custom of Mr. Shelly to loose Captain when they were about ilosiiig tlio"housoand rctiringranti-to chain him up early in the morning, before it was likely there would bo any callers at the farm. The follow- iug morning I arose very early, haying passed a restless night, and hnding it iiniiossible to take a morning nap I dressed and went down stairs, seating myself on the porch. I had entirely i'orgotton the fact that Captain was loose, and as I sat inhaling the fresh air from the pines I was startled to behold the dog standing by my side, gazing fixedly on my face. For a moment I was undecided how to act. Hetreat was impossible—to show fear might induce tho brute to fix his fangs in my throat in an instant. I was afraid to speak, lest a strange voice might alter nis purpose if it was pacitic. I, theirefpre, looked kindly at him and smiled. Majestically striding up to mo ho laid his broad head upon my icnce and 1 cautiously began to caress - him. Dhring the operation Ml. Shelley fortunately appealed upon the scene. Hp gave fl quick gUooe toward me, and, calling the dog, took him to his kennel and chained him. Then it was I explained to him tho circumstance of my early rising and the unexpected meeting of Captain on tho porch. "1 don't quite comprehend your good luck with tho dog," he remarked, "but I would advise you in future to keep, within doors until you have seen me about." "If you have no objection," I replied, "I would very much like to feed the dog once—only once. I will be very careful, but I really will consider it a favqrjf^you will consent to my request." ~ "All right," he returned. "You know what I have said about his terrible nature; therefore be on your guard." That day I carried Captain hi.s dinner, and he devoured it while I stood by his side. Froni thenceforth I had not a misgiving as to his good disposition toward me. 4 « * * * * I was detained at the farm for six days before tho lameness of my horse allowed mo to resume my journey. During this period I became mueli attached to Mr. Shelly and his wile. Captain and myself'had grown to bo such good friends that wo had taken several strolls together over the land. Notwithstanding my host and hostess appeared to be ail'eclionatcly attached to each other, there was certainly something wrong at the farm and it could not escape an observant eye. Once or twice I had come upon Mr. Shelly and his wife uuexpoctodly, and I thought I detected traces of tears in Iier eyes, wliilo lier manner evidently betrayed fear. Still her husband was so kind all the while that I could not avoid pondering on the matter. I never intruded my presence upon them if I could avoid it, but it sometimes would occur In spite of me. One afternoon I came into the room abruptly and found Mr. Shelly fanning his wife, and caught a remark he uttered with strong emphasis. "We must sell this place," ho said, "forit appears impossible for you to have a day's happiness here, and I would sooner s.acri- iico it than see you die slowlj' before my eyes. Oh, 'tis too hard!" and he kissed licr brow. Turning about, he saw mcand knew I had heard his expression. "I think I will lie down," said JIrs, Shelly, and as she passed me I noticed her face was as pale as the dead. When she had gone up stairs, Mr. Shelly turned to me and said: "I suppose you perceive there is something amiss hero. Y<ui see no hands about the place and :i general state of idleness reigns supreme Of course there is a reason for it, and I am going to tell you what it means. The only thing I am afraid of is that you may consider me a madman or & fool, but J swear to you what I am about to relate is as true as holy writ. I am an honest man, sir, and a truthful one, consequently I do not lie when I say we have an—apparition—in short, a ghost here. I pray you do not hastily imagine that I am a' weak and superstitious man; you shall be convinced, for you may sec the whole matter with your own eyes and tlien judge for yourself. My wife's liealth has been failing ever since this thing came anout, and it breaks my heart to witne-s her suffering. I can't lind a ready purchaser for the place, and old Ueuben is the only person wlio will remain with me, but, you see, he hides as much as possible indoors. Look," he continued, pointing across tho road to a piece of woodland, "do you ob.serve vender fallen tree?" I gazed in the direction indicated and saw the trunk of a large tree lying prone on the ground. It was, in fact, a huge log, from which tlie bark had long been peeled. "Well,""he continued, "at irregular intervals the ap- paiition appears on that fallen tree, arrayed in tho traditional wlnle drapery, and it walks up and (lown, swaying to and fro and all the time waving its arms towards the house, A half hour ago it was visible, but it Viinishos as quickly as it appears. I am not under any powerful hallucination. I am a rational, sane man. and what I tell you is theearnest truth." "I have witnessed some strange affairs myseli," I rejoined, "luit let mo ask you if you are positively sure there is notricklnthe thitigP" He gave a hollow laugh. "Hanging in the house," he said, is my repealing rifle. Men will tell you tliat 1 am the best shot in tlie country, and that's saying a good deal. 1 can kill a sparrow, iind perhaps a bulterlly. You observe that log is not more than (if ty yards distant, and yet I swear to you I have repeatedly drawn a dead aim on the thing as "it danced plainly in sight. I have lircd, but still it always stood shaking its arms wildly in the air. I've shot dozens of times at it, but I can't kill it, for it is not human." "No one would try the prank for some motive or other?" I questioned. "For instance, suppose they wished to buy the place cheaply, perhaps this ghost story might induce you to sell at a saerificel" ^"Do vou think," he returned quick-_ ly, "that any one who knows Abel Shelly would care to assume such desperate chances before his rifle? Oh, no. There is nobody who would lake that risk. Besides, I should have killed it long ago if there wjis anything to kill. It always comes in the afii'r- noon," continued Shelly, "biit never at night. You perceive"it reverses the accepted tinieof nocturnal visitation." "I do not consider myself more courageous than men generally," 1 replied, "but I would be glad it you would notify me if this object appears again during my stay. , Perhaps I may bo able to investigate more satisfactorily than you have done." "Very well," he replied, "I will do so." 1 had .1 sweet sleep that night and no ghost haunted my dreams, and it was only when 1 awa'kenod that I recalled the conversation of the previous day. I could not doubt that Mr. Shelly and his wife were both thoroughly honest in their convictions, still 1 could not bring myself to accept tho thing as supernatural. I dressed and, as was my custom, went out to the kennel to visit my friend Captain, for by this time there was a mutual attachment between us, and I would sooner have trusted tho beast's loyalty than I'wouldfmost men's. With Captain for an ally I should feel comparatively safe, for he was tho perfection of bravery. The day was pleasant, there was not a cloud m tho sky, and a gentle wind -blew-with delicious-coolness.- Dinner had been very late, foi Mrs. Shelly was not well. It was drawing toward 5 o'clock when I took my accustomed seat on the porch with ray pipe. Shelly joined me; his wife was sitting inside by the window. My eyes were involuntarily turned toward the fallen tree. Shelly divided my thoughts, for he shook his head gravolj', smoked on and said nothing. Suddenly there came a half-suppressed cry from Mrs. Shelly, and at the same instant her husband exclaimed: "There, don't you see it? Look!" I gazed steadily at the spot, but could discern nothing unusual and told him so. "And you don't see it?" he cried. "Watch how it waves its arms towards us and dances on the log." I arose to my feet and went to tlio edge of tho porch. F,very foot of the tree trunk was visible, but nowhere could I discern a ghost. I absolutely could see nothing But the oli] wenther baaten anci docaylcg log, "HoaTens!" exclaimed Shelly, "observe how wildly it tosses its arms and 8«e how its drapery trails." ~ I took a steady look at the speaker, for r oould-not..reconcilo_tho-matter,. and I said: "I will try and solve this thing." "Don't go there," impld^cd Mrs. Shelly, as I stepped down on the ground. I made no reply, but walked straight to Captain's kennel and unchained him. "Old boy," I said, patting his head, "you and I will try it together. Come along." The noble fellow appeared to comprehend me, for he looked up inmy face, licked my hana"and"w[riReagrave- ly by my side. He didn't frisk or gambol, but behaved with the seriousness becoming the occasion. I went straight down the road, mounted tho fence and umped over. Captain keeping a little n my advance. I had excited tho noble creature by talking to him until tho hair "stood stiffly up on his neck and his eyes glanced like coals. To my utter consternation when ho was dashing ahead bravely and about twenty feet from the tree, he gazed in a dazed manner for an instant, and uttering a sharp cry, dropped his tail between his legs and rushed back to the house with all his si>eod. I looked at his retreating form with a sort of bewilderment and .then at tho tree. There was certainly nothing unusual visible to my eyes at least. The bare old tree trunic that was all. I smiled tis I mounted it and took several turns up and down its length, and then walked back leisurely to tho house. Captain was lying by his master's chair, trembling in every limb. Tho dog was surely terrified. "I saw nothing," I remarked. "Hut wo did.' .returned Mrs. Shelly. "Every step you took the thing followed "you, waiving its arms over your head. O, I am so sorry you went there. Something will surely happen you if you are not careful. You were too rash. It was too perilous," and she wrung her hands. "It has gone now," said Shelly. Seventeen years have elapsed since then, and I am not conscious of any particular evil having overtaken me, but there is one thing I would very much like to know—if Shelly and his wife did not see a ghost, what did the dog see?—F/iilmlclp/ua Times. Tlie Chinese Theater. From an illustrated article under the above title, by Henry I^rden McDowell, in the November Century, we quote tho following: "The Cliinese theater, however, is perhaps seen at its best in tho evening. Wh.at jHishing and chattering and quarreling there is, to be sure, as you make your way thrpugJi the celestials who throng the box-oHice! The bux-ollice, too, with its little jiigeon-holes, seems rather small for the purpose. But, as the Chinese always bring the exact sum, no change is necessary, and everything moves with admirable dispatch. You probably have engaged a box, or 'room,' as tlie Chinese call it, and as your name has been posted up conspicuously upon it, there is no chanco of mistake. "The stage is ablaze with brilliant costumes of red and gold. The lights from the iron chandeliers flare heavily in the draught. Processions of armies, emperors, statesmen, and generals enter in rapid succession through a led-curtained door on one side and pass out through a red-curtained door on the other. Now the emperor is holding an audience. The next moment his troops are engaged in bitter combat witli the retainers of some unruly v.as,-al. Every species of crime, every form of human passion, is crowded into the brief moment of the fleeting scene. A messenger from heaven, standing on a chair, delivering his high summons to a fairy lish. is next presented to your confused imagination. Then, whirling in angry passion, a painted-face king, pulling his feathers fiercely,and loudly threatening all manner of dreadful things. The orchestra keeps up its infernal din. Ill shrill falsetto the characters sing through a sort of high-pitched recitative. "Presently you p.iss down behind the stage, through the paint-room, where an actor is making himself as ugly as veimilion and umber can well do it; then by moans of a narrow stairway down to the dres .sing -rooui, rich in its very confusion, and strewn around with costly brocades and satins wlierever the convenience of the last actor had left them. It is not long before you lind yourself standing on tho stage, so near the .actors, too, that the emperor's robes touch you as he sweeps superbly by. Then you are hurried back to your box again', where it is explained to you that the lighting is still going on, and that So-and-So has killed So-and-So and is -ertf on horseback. You leave the theater of the oldest people in the world with a confused idvn of the plot, burlesqued by your interpreter and still more highly colored by your heated imagination, with the blare of the trumpet and the strident wail of the liddlc in your ears, with the smell of all Chinatown in your nostrils,witlnrrioaTlaclr07 perhaps, but with little added to your stock of information."

On one side are two "ship3~and on the other the figure of a wild boar surrounded by the words Characteristics of Smokers. A gentleman who is a great "fumigator" says that he lia.s pnilosophized about smokers, with the result: "An even-tempered, quiet man never goes to an extreme in choosing his cigar. A nervous man wants something strong and furious; a mild man something that smokes, and nothing more. Tliere is a gre;it <IeaI in the way men handle their cigar. If a man smokes his cigar only enough to keep it lighted,- and relishes taking it from his mouth to cast a look at the blue curl of smoke in the air, sot him down as an easy going man. Ho has keen perceptions and delicate sensibilities. He will not create trouble, but is apt to see it out wlien once begun. Beware of the man who never releases the grip of his cigar, and is indiflerent whether it burns or not. Ho is cool, calculating, and exacting. Ho is seldom energetic physically, but lives easily off those who perform the labor. The man that smokes a bit, rests a bit, and fumbles the cigar more or loss, is easily afl'ectcd by circumstances. If the cigar goes out frequently tho man has a whole-souled disposition, is a devil-may-care sort of a fellow, with a lively brain and a glib tongue and f enerally a fine fund of anecdotes, o hold half of the cigar in the mouth and smoke indifl'erently is a lazy _man's habit. They arc generally of little force and their characters are not of the highest strat.a. A nervous man, who fumbles his cigar a great deal, is a sort of popinjay among men. Holding the cigar constantly between tho teeth, chewing it occasionally, and notj caring if it is lighted at all, arc characterisTics of men who have the tenacity of bulldogs. Tliey never for- f et anything or let go their holds, he fop stands his cigar on end and .an experienced smoker points it straight ahead, or almost at right angles with his course. Such has been my observations with regard to smokers .— SI. Louis Qlobe-Demoeral. A Washington lady says It Is mock modesty that prevents the women from riding the tricycle.

It is an evergreen, with a beautiful purple and white flower, and bears a fruit shaped like a rifled canon shell, .about four inches long, by from two to three inches in diameter. This curious little shrub bears a melon of most excellent taste, with the outside streaked with yellow and brown, and an inside the color of a cantoloupe.

Bill Richmond, who claims tojiavc stolon one thousand horses, and to have had live wives at one time, besides acting in other capacities not allowed in good society, appeared in Scott county, Arkansas, a few dtvys ago, and simultaneously horses and cattle began to disappear. A posse was organized to hunt Willi.am, and tho posse celebrated his capture by firing a volley into the air. Tho horse of Blair, one of tho men, became frightened at the report, and, turning suddenly, the rider^s rifle was discharged, killing him instantly. Ramon Galindo, of Yantepec, Mes., conceived the idea that Maria Matiana, a harmless old woman living by herself, was a witch, and that she was easting an evil on his family, and sharpening his dagger plunged it into -tlie-opigastrio region-of -her-abdomcn. The poor woman died in horrible agony and after a brief trial Galindo was sentenced to live years in the penitentiary. The judge's reason for giving such a light sentence was because G.alindo swore on the-staud that he was in the sincere belief that ho had rid tho community of a dangerous witch. One of the most interesting discoveries relating to our early colonial history has just been made by Henry F. Waters, the London agent of the New England Historic Genealogical society. It IS a description of New England, written by Samuel Maverick about the year 1660. Maverick came to .this country, according to his own account, in 1624, six j-e&rs before tho great emigration under Gov. Winthrop, and he was Ylhy the Immlffranta Cane. The .standing armies of Europe when on a peace footing, aggregate over three million men. To support this large force the people are taxed nearly six hundred million dollars every ? ear. Theactual tax is much greater han this amount, for not only must the workers pay this vast sum to support the soldiers, but the labor of these three million men la lost. Tho men are producing absolutely nothing and consuming much. The standing army is thus an institution which works in both directions. It is a two-edged sword. Were the _threo_million_men_jiot_cmployed- as soldiers they would bo working at some useful occupation and would bo earning enough to support themselves. That is to say they would be earning as much as they now cost, or would bo producing obout $600,000,000 annually, for most of the men would join the irodueing classes. There would thus JO not only a saving of $600,000,000 but an actual gain of tho same amount every year. Wl lien the magnitude of these figures is realized, it ceases to be a wonder that the tide of immigration sets very strongly westward from Europe. The more intelligent classes,and those with tho most independent minds, will not submit to tho extortion, and leave for America. The fact that it is tho more independent and intelligent who resent such treatment and who leave their native lands in consequence, is the reason that m.any of tho European rulers so strongly oppose the immigration of their subjects. The very men who would make good soldiers arc those who are driven out of the country. America, however, profits ny Europe's shortsightedness, for wo gain the material we want. The men who refuse to submit to tyranny or oppression in any form are the men who make good citizens.— San Francisco Daily Report. A B OSTON paper has tho following: Mr. Geo. E. Colby, the famous young Chicago artist, is not only noted for his genius in tho artistic line, but also for the remarkable strokes of luck which unexpectedly fall to him. During the present summer Mr. Colby has met with an incident worthy of publication, and. one which proves the existence of a star of good fortune under which he was born, and which has ever hovered over him. It happened near tho Glen Ellis Falls, a noted point of interest in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. On a Sunday morning in June a party of tourists started from the Glen House to visit the falls. After beholding tho grandeur of the roaring cataract for a few moments some of the party became venturesome and began to crosB and recross the rocks above the rushing water. It was in attempting this that a young girl of about sixteen summers lost her balance and fell, to tho horror of all present, for no one could live in the mad waters below. For an instant she swept into an eddy—it sarved her life; for, quick as thought young Colby sprang to her rescue, and, holding on with determined strengh, managed to keep her and himself from washing down till rescued by some of the parly. Mr. Colby was rewarded for his bravo act with a check for $1 ,000 from the hap py father of tho girl. Both rescuer and rescued were nearly exhausted with their eflbrts for life; "and as both are "f.ancy free," Mr. Colby's friends are surmising. She was also by far tho prettiest girl in the party.
