A very slnRular malady, says the Eome correspondont of tho London .Standard, has appeared in some of tho northern provinces of Italy as a, sequel to the influenza. Tho country people call it La Nona, and declare that tlie patient sleeps himself to death. Although rumors ami paragraphs have been circulated for some little time about La Nona, tho popular accounts were supposed to bo exaggerated: but tho following circular latoiy issued by the prefect of Brcsna to all the syndics in that province shows. that tho thing Is serious and has not been overstated. It should be observed, for the information ol tho English reader, that, the Italian law requires that interment shall talco placo twenty-fonr hours after death. The circular runs as follows: "Althoueh the epidemic known as.tn- fiuonza. Is almost at an end; yet in those late days in several communes cases of very rapid death have bean verified in consequence of cardiacal paralysis and comatose attacks. In view of this fact, the prefect finds himself obliged to recommend tho worshipful syndics not to hurry the burial of persons deceased 'from such maladies, protracting the period of delay even to forty-eight hours. I would beg tho syndics also, oy means of the reverend parish. priests, to recommend that tlie doctor bo called in in cases of even the slightest indisposition." . • Following this I note a paragraph iu the Scntinella Brcsclana to the- effect that Brs. Do Marie and JFontana have under thoir care a young man who has boon sleeping for twenty . days. He opens bis eyos once each day for o, f ew moments without .uttering a word and immediately afterward is fast asloep.

Tun T !»ron, after considerable bimllr.?. gob -UVWO franca anil ' gjm fr A MOUNTAIN TRAGEDY. It was late ono suiniiicv afternoon when I rode up'to a little farmhouse in the Tennessee mountains, and paused for a brief rest and a drink of water. Two iicrsoiis wero sitting ovr the piaz>.u—u, man anri u woman—plain country people, past middle age—just such, a pair'as one would expect to find in a quiet mountain cottage. The farmer and his wife offered mo it comfortable . rocking-chair, and a negro woman brou.'-fht me a. gourd of cold spring water. It struck me after a few words hud been exchanged that there was something wrong in tho little household, but I could not see what it was. The man and' woman both had sad faces, and their hair seemed to be prematurely white. Their voices wero Dleasant, but they spoke in a subdued tone, in a mechanical way, apparently feeling little interest in anything that was said. The man, I soon found, was partially paralyzed and moved slowly, and with difficulty, I took, it for granted that they were stiv in the presence of strangers, and at once proceeded to make myself agreeable by praising tho scenery and complimenting the place and its surroundings. The woman answered me with little enthusiasm, and the man .was silent, except when I asked him a direct question, i attempted to make the two take a mutual interest in the con versation, but they did not lookateach other, and what was said by one was ignored by the other. Such placid indifference was depros sing. It was impossible to talk freely under such conditions, and in a_ Jew minutes I rose to go. JMy hosts, did not ask me to remain longer, and I felt that my visit was unwelcome. As I rode away up the hill I glanced back two or three times. Just as I expected, this singular couple remained seated as far away as they could get from each other. They were silently looking straight ahead. Evidently they bad not exchanged a word concerning tho stranger who had just left them. All this was so unliko country people that I began to suspect some mystery. Half an hour's ride brought me to the house of my old friend, Col. Jones, .where I was to spend the night. "Colonel." I said suddenly, as we smoked our pipes, after supper, "do you know anything about the people at the next house, where I stopped on my way here this afternoon?" "Poor Jack Hunter and his wife, 1 ' replied the colonel. "\'es I know all about them. You took them for very peculiar people, I suppose?" Then I told my friend what I had seen, and how the strange manner ol the farmer and his wife had puzzled me. "Poor Jack and poof Mary!" exclaimed the colonel. "I-will tell you their story." "It was during the war when Mary- Holt and her folks moved into this settlement. In those days Mary was the prettiest girl in this whole mountain range, and Jack Hunter was one of the ripest young fellows to be found anywhere. "You know what is coming. Jack and Mary being the handsomest and brightest couple in the neigborhood naturally fell in love' with each other, and in six months they were married. No two young people ever began life under happier circnmstances. The only draw back was Jack's temper. He was high-spirited, altogether too quick and fiery, and son. e of the old folks predicted that this would cause trouble. "The prophets of evil were right," ho continued. "In those times this was a sort of neutral ground. It was between the lines, and confederate and union soldiers came and went without being molested. Hunter wus a red-hot secessionist, and would have joined the army if he had not been lame in one leg. As it was he made no secret of his sentiments, and the unionists kept out of his way. "Mary seemed to be devoted to hei husband, and everything moved along pleasantly for months after their wedding. One day there was a change, Jack had a kinswoman, a meddlesome g-onsip, who hintad to him that something was wrong Jack was furious; but his cousin told him .he had married 1 Mnry without inquiring into her. past history, and then 3he whispered something that drove the young man almost crazy with rage." My companion rote from his chair who does her hotisecleaning and washing (or has her servants do this work) with PYLE'S PEARLINE. ^7&7Viir? Because Pearline VV ny r - ma kes the largest saving all around; saves half the time ; half the labor—more than half the wear. Do you know you don't have to rub the clothes when washed with Pearline ? This saves the woman and makes the clothes last longer (besides, they look better). What can be harder on woman's health than bobbing up and down over a washboard ? What" can be harder on the clothes—anything harder don't exist. Millions of women know these facts well; it takes many millions of packages of PEARLINE to supply their .'* demands for it. You have only to prove these facts and you'll demand it. The best way is—try it Costs little and every grocer has it. Peddlers and some unscrupulous grocers are offering imitations which thev claim .to be Pearline, or " the same as Pearline. 11 b i AL.bfc— they arc not. '7' JAMES PYLE.

Hunter iear;ie f r om "hi? r>r,iisin +h.'it ?'nrv Ivnl '' holding clandestine meetings with a union officer in a secluded spot not far from her home. The husband said nothing: to his wife. He waited and watched. Mary wondered why Jack had suddenly grown so cross and silent, but she mado the best of it, thinking that he had some trouble on his mind. 1 'Just about twilight one day Jack came home from the field where he had been at work and found Mary missing;. He instantly left the • house and ran to the top of neighboring- bill, He saw just what he feared. Down ID the valley below he saw his wife and a handsome union officer parting- from each other in the most affectionate manner. They embraced and kissed after the manner of lovers. ••Hunter slipped back to the house, seized his rifle, and went olT to the woods in the direction the ollicei' would bo stiro to take on his way back to the union lines. An hour later .ust as Mary was wondering: why her husband was so late for supper, Jac.: walked in and threw his i-ille into u corner. His white face and bla.iiiy eyes alarmed Mary and she aslctd somu excited questions, .lack coully told her that he had discovered her intriyue and had followed her lover from their nlace of meeting, and had shot, him down like a dog within sight of his camp. Ho had seen some soldiers come out and cnry the dead body off. "Mary stood liko a marble Htntuu listening to the horrible story." "•God forgive you," she cried. "You have killed my brother an.d broken my heart.' "It was only too ln;e. Mary knowing how strong Jack was for the southern cause had never told about her union brother, but when tho young officer was in tho neighborhood the two had secretly met sover;il times. ••Hunter fell on "his knees und beg- i god forgiveness, lie offered to kill himself, or do anything that his v.ife demanded. But Mary would not talk. She asked to bo let alone until morning, and locked herself in her room. Poor Jack roamed about in the woods all night, and iu the morning returned home, where he found his wife waiting- tor him. "Mary looked at the man's haggard face, and noticed his trembling limbs. •• -Jack 1 " she said, "you are as good a man as ever lived, but you have blighted my life by your mistake or crime. I can never love you again, but my heart is full of pity. Let us live hero until God calls us away. I will try to do m^ duty, but do not speak to mo, for I cannot answer you. Here is one kiss for our old ,love, and now let us bear our sorrow in silence until the spell is broken.'" The Colonel threw himself into a chair and sighed? ••There is nothing more to tell," he said. "Those two unfortunates have not: spoken to each other in twenty- flve years. They are,kind and patient, but I am afraid they will never come together. Jack was paralyzed just after his great trouble, and his wife has been very good to him in her way. Sad story, isn't it?"
