Ho grew warm'upon the subject of his newly recovered faculty, and sho listened as> if sho drank life and happiness with every word. Ho was so glad to bo able to toll her all he ro- membered, his boyish history, his days at school and afterwards, and ho wandered on to hiw rovings on the prairiei. Lucy's faco became paler jot, and a hushed awe trembled 011 ' her brow. He told her all that he remembered About their first meeting, and about his encounter with Dick Ashland. '••Suddenly, a look of horror crept over his features. Ho started up, as from .a fearful dream, and stared at the ,girl who sat in front of him. "My God!" he exclaimed, "it's •come back to me! It'n comeback to rue! It was David Maclane whomur- •dered Dick Ashland, and who tried to murder me!"-Ho rose writhing his arms in the -air, and with staring eyes, he retreated a step or two. "I can'seO'him as if it wore now,'• ho added, in nervous rapidity. "I can see him in tho moonlight. I a,m lying here, and Dick Ashland is lying there." He pointed with outstretched fingers to two distinct .places ou tho carpet. "We aro both shot—those fiends, tho Machines, have shot us from tho gulch head above. I can see David Maciane drawing a big knife across Dick Ashland's throat, and the blood is spurt-, 'ing all over him as ho kneels, and I fire at the hound from where I Ho; and ho comos running towards mo, jind grips mo by the throat, and takes my pistol from mo and bcata me with it on tho head—savagely, iuriouslv. And I hoar a woman's voice, crying 'Stop! stop!' and I can see you, Lucy—you Lucy—coming down the gulch side." The hot tears were streaming over his faco. His breath heaved as if in suffocating agony, and his hands quivered by his side. Lucy had risen also, and was -standing there like a white statue of despair, wringing her hands in voiceless, tearless torture. Ho gazed at her long and intently, •drawing his breath in vain efforts to speak. At last he-clutched his hair, .and cried:— "Your father and your cousin mur- •dorod Dick Ashland—and you—you •saved my life." He fell down on his knees, and •dragged himself to where sho stood, •utid covered her cold hand with kisses. "You angol of angels! Why did I not know ere this what I owe to you? Why do I remember it only now?" When the picture of that fearful scene was completed, and ho had not pushed her from him in disgust as the daughter of an assassin; when ho had only found words of praise for whrit she deemed but her duty humbly done, the warm fountains of her heart wore loosened, and Lucy found relief in balmy tears. Her heartstrings, strained to breaking nearly, again made tender music. Sho stooped to him, and obeying her gentle impulse, he rose to his feot. They were both overstrung in mind. Sir William had permitted them to walk in tho garden, and they stepped out into the sweetly cool .night. How long they walked up and •down there, with barely a word spoken now and then, neither of them know. Tho heavens glittered with their canopy of stars, and the ghostly light of the moon spread like a pearly foam over the sward and the flower-clad borders. They walked around to tho other aide of the house, where a bench invited them to a momentary rest. It was now Lucy's turn to open her heart He knew all. all that sho had hoped to hide from him—lior father's crime, her cousin's guilt. Her task w»a ended, she said; fairor hands than hers would smooth his path—a •worthier woman than she would bring him love and affection. All thtit remained to her now was to go •away—far away—far away from him .and from the world, to some spot where, forgotten by those aho knew, sho might bring solace to some who were suffering. Ho started up as if in fright. "You want to go away, Lucy?" he •cried. "You want to loavo mo be•cause your father is guilty? You the truest woman on earth! No, Lucy; I know you better now.than lover did, and your father's guilt can bring no staig to you. 1 * At that moment, on a siiddert, a .fiofce, .fiendish, unearthly roar grrtw Tntb' 1 a'httnla.i i 6^ 1 dtafe'nt ! tt'Jf'- l -ei < a«l 1 l;Ba not far from them.

Tho Morning News, of 18th July, i860, 'contained the following paragraph: • "A terrible, and up to this moment, inoxplalnable explosion of gunpowder occurred about 1 o'clock this morning at Kecdon Lodge, a small house standing in its own grounus. on a lane between Shepporton and HaUiford-on-Thtttnes, about,, nine teen miles from Charing Cross. Mr. Samuel iiond, tho proprietor of tho "Greyhound" inn, at Sheppcrton, a few weeks ago, lot the house to Mr. Sylvanus Thompson, who lived in it with a sick f fiend, who>ie name, is tin-. known,*and : an' olderiy servant. Mr. Thompson was not in the house at tho tlrno of tho disaster, but it is learod that both tho other men have become victims to. tho explosion. Tho house was completely destroyed, and fragments have boon found, a quarter of u mile away. Considerable damage has been done to tho next building, The Nest, belonging to Sir William Cutlibortaonj- but, luckily the carl of Clove, and a young lady, and an attendant, who wore staying at Tho Nest at tho time, escaped without injury." The "Morning News," of 20th July, contained tho following: "Wo can now amp'ify the lengthened and detailed account, given in our issuo of yesterday about tho explosion at Keotlon Lodge, by some startling and horrifying particulars. Upon tho removal yesterday, by tho workmen engaged in tho task, of the debris of tho guttod place!, a shaft about ton feot deep was discovered in the center of tho floor of tho lower room. The men who doscendod found that it communicated by an excavated narrow tunnel with a small dug-out chamber underneath tho room in which tho earl of Clevo has lately beo.u confined. This, in addition -to the discovery of tho packet of uti- oxplodod fuses, and tho largo amount of gunpowder that had boon stored at .Reodon Lodge, points inevitably to a dastardly, but happily by Providence frustrated, attempt upon i;ho life of the young earl. The matter is now in the hands of tho authorities at Scotland Yard, and active researches are being made for Mr. Sylvanus Thompson, who has not yet shown himself, and whoso whereabouts are totally unknown. Wo understand tho earl of Clevo has offered a reward of a thousand pounds for the discovery .of the perpetrator or perpetrators of this crime, and wo aro happy to add that Lord Clove, who. as our readers aro aware, has only just recovered from a dangerous operation, is nono tho worse for the accident." Tho Morning News of Sod July, published tho following: "Tho accumulated evidence concerning tho explosion at Ecodon Lodge, Halliford-on-Thamos, becomes daily more appalling. It has now boon incontestably proved that the horribly mangled remains of tho two mon killed by tho explosion are those of Mr. David Maclane and Mr. George Maclane, two American millionaires, residing at Tho Boltons, South Kensington, who had lately attracted a very great deal of attention in London society, Mr. David Maolano having been engaged to bo married to Lady Evelyn Wynter, only daughter of the marquis of Gwondalc. Tho awful news has spread consternation in fashionable circles, and people are asking with bated breath whether tho Machines arc the victims or the originators of an attempted dastardly crime." Tho Morning News of 27th July said: "No doubt whatever remains at the present moment that tho wretched mon, Goo.-go arid David -Maolane, bo- came, by tho intervention of an avenging Providence, the victims of their own fiendish scheme to assassinate Lord Clevo. The earl has informed tho authorities that David and George Maclano wore the men who attempted to murder him in tho Hocky mountains, and that it was David Maclane who had inflicted upon him tho terrible wounds which had brought about his total loss of memory. The motive for this second attempt on Lord Clevo's life was the foar of discovery and conviction, re-t suiting from tho earl's newly-regained faculty of memory." "Tho Morning News, of 10th September, 1860, said: — "The English consulate at Paris has received information that a very large sum of money in notos of the bank of England and bank of Franco has boon found upon the body of Herbert Vavasour, an English gentleman, who has died of delirium tremens at the Hotel des Etrangors. No papers or documents of any kind were found giving a clue to tho deceased's friends or relatives, and the money remains in the possession of the French police." From the Morning News, 26th September, I860:-- "The body of tho man calling himself Herbert Vavasour, lately deceased in Paris, has boon recognized as that of Edward Wall, a convicted thief. The numbers of the notes found upon him proved that they were issued by tho bank of England to David Maclane who was Lillod in the Ueedon Lodge explosion. " The newspapers of tho year 1860 do not show that any further evidence Was, adduced to prove wh6 Was the actual perpetrator of the fieedon Lodge ' offtrftge. •' - I am therefore, justified in believing that it remainsd one of those mysterious crimes which tho London police have been unable to unravel. "Mr. Qucnthelin has settled it all. my^doar, Lucy, "said the carl of Clevd to the beauti'ful young countess, "and wo will not touch one copper of tliese blood-staine-d millions. A hundred thousand pounds go to Fred Ashland, and three-hundred thousand pounds are divided among his three children. '1'he London charities get a million: twenty-thousand pounds go to the Staffordshire hospitals, and -the- rest is distributed amongst charitable, institutions in America. Are von contented now, my dear?" ho asked. She threw her arms around his nock and kissed him. "Yos, darling, sho said, with a tear brimming in her big blue e.y'c. "I am happy now— ^-as happy as ever 1 hope to be in this wicked world." TUB KN1». Stcntn l'o>vor In 5ng*r fllU'n. Steam power is being gradually introduced into tho sugar mills, but the island of Barbadocs is still well studded with windmills, which pleasingly diversify the monotonous aspect o-f tho over cultivated country. Indeed with so constant a 'power as the trade wind, most of tho work of 'this favored land can bo performed 'almost Tree of cost. If you need water you have only to sink .u well and erect a windmill over it, which will keep your reservoir full. Tho coral rock is so porous that there is no such tning • as a river in tho whole island.

A cure of rattlesnake bite by the chicken remedy is reported from Madison county, Georgia, and the incident has recalled other like cures in that region in times past. Tho remedy is to kill a chicken and apply tho llosh as quickly as possible to the wound; the poison, it is assumed, is absorbed by the chicken llesh. The pationt in this instance was badly bitten, but suffered little inconvenience and was- soon quite well. There-is a belief in Georgia that if the snake inflicting the wound ia caught and killed and its flesh similarly applied a euro will surely result. Tho Hook I'm- Him. There was a backward student at Jjalliol who, for failure to pass au examination in Greek, was "sent down."

"It is a hard experience for him, this disgrace," said tho old lady; "but he will have the consolation of religion, and thcro is always one book to" which ho can turn." Jowett eyed her a moment and then answered: "Yes, madam, the Greek grammar. Good-morning."— Argonaut. IIow Mexlcuns <!et Cool Vi°:iU-r.

In those days a crnel war was laying waste the land,and she had to fly from her-home in the dead of night, with her two children. At first she knew not where to go, tout her old serving- man begged her to go with him to his own people, who lived in a little mining village away, hidden in the liar/, mountains. So the noble countess put herself in his en re, and his brothers and sisters were vei'y kind to the poor wanderers, took them in and gave them the best they hnd, But the best they had was very poor, and, at first, the dainty-reared woman and children- came -near starving. There was no meat, no lish, and not even an egg: and this last for the good reason that there was not a fowl iti the settlement. These domestic fowls that seem so common to us, and that we see everywhere, at first came from the far east, and had at that time only been seen in large cities and towns. And these mountain folks had never even hoard of such "strange birds." So the countess decided to repay their kindness. She secretly sent her old servant down to their old home. There lie found the castlo almost wholly destroyed, but was . lucky enough to gather up a large number of the chickens that still roosted about their old homo. He brought them up to the mountains and great was the surprise of all the peasants as they saw the queer birds. But a few weeks afterward they were still more astonished and delighted, for si. young brood of chicks was shown to them by the kind countess. (), how the village children laughed and clapped their hands at the sight of the clittlc, downy, bright- eyed creatures, who were so strong and spry, and who followed the old hen about to pick up their food-oil the very day they came out of their shells. Such a contrast to the blind, bald, ugly little fledglings that they saw in the nests in the hedges. Now the countess saved up 1 her eggs until she had enough fora feast, when she invited all the housewives to come to taste the new food, and learn how to prepare it. At the close of the feast she gave each family a number of fowls to take home and use for her family. When Easier came, she was anxious to do .something for the children, and it occurred to her that as the egg was tho sign oi' new life it would be a nice thing to have an egg' festival for the children's Kaster treat. So sho took mosses and roots, and with them colored some of the eggs—saying that "the earth laid aside her mantle of snow in tho spring, and (!od himself made the fruit and berries not only good to eat, but pleasant to look upon." On Easter Sunday, after the villagers had met for their simple service, she called all the little ones, and after talking- pleasantly to them for a while, she led them into a grove near by. There sho told them to piny about,and pretend they wens little birdies, and make themselves some cuto little nests. Then she called them to her house, or cottage, and gave them a little feast of the best sho could prepare. It was only some nice milk-soup, with cooked eggs, and egg cakes. When they had finished their feast they hoard a great whistling, and cooing, and squeaking in tho grove where they had left their nests. What could bo the matter? The children ran back to see, and lo! in every nest there were five beautiful colored eggs, and on one of these a little rhyme was painted. Imagine tho surprise and delight of these simple children. They talked among themselves and wondered where they came from. "What a strange hen it must be to lay eggs of so many colors!" said one. •'Oh, I do not think that hens lay such hard eggs," said another. But a third one said: "1 sun sure it was that dear little hare I saw jumping out from behind the bushes where I made my nest." This idea seemed to please tho little ones and they all shouted together: "Yes, yes—tho little haro laid the colored eggs!" And they kept on repeating it until they began to believe it. Not long afterward, as the countess sat talking to the children, who was it that the little daughter saw coming- tip the mountain? It was tho clear father, the husband whom they all thought must be dead. And as ho came to them on this Easter day it was another reason why tho countess loved the day and wished to have it always celebrated. So when she went back with her husband and children to rebuild their old home sho left a sum 'of money to be expended in giving the children an Easter egg-feast every year. She also started the fashion of the "egg-feast" in her own duchy, and so it grew, and by degrees the custom spread all over tho laud, and the eggs also at length became a sort of symbol of restoration to happiness and redemption from sin. The custom has spread to our own country, but I think noiie but Gurinau children believe that the eggs arc laid by the timid little hare. ;....., E. A. MATTHEWS.

For some time before Easter, says Mr. Rodd, in his ''Customs and Lore of Modern Greece," the city, of Athens wears a picturesque aspect. This is duo in great part to the number of shepherds who, with their flocks, have come down from tho mountains, and lire camped in every available open space, engaged in selling their lambs. There is no family so poor as not to break the long Lenten fast with an Easter lamb, the value of which is about a dollar, and a veritable massacre of the innocents is going on. It is late on Saturday night that the real Easter celebration takes place. An immense crowd fills all the ap- proa.ches to tho cathedral, and such parts of tho church as arc not kept clear. Without, a raised platform has been created, and decorated with evergreens. In the cathedral tho royal princes, the ministers of state and the high functionaries of the kingdom assemble to attend the midnight service. As the hour of midnight approaches, the Metropolitan with his assistant's, preceded by tho cross and banners, advance with lighted tapers. The various notabilities light their tapers from that of the archbishop, and so the sacred fire is communicated to the crowd. A BUSINESS GlftL, She Contlncptl ifer ^Atfier of TUB EASTER CKLKBRATIoy. As the midnight hour sounds, and Easter succeeds tho last day of Lent, the Metropolitan, a bla/.e of silver and gold, with his tiara, the silver gospel, and tho episcopal erqzier, ascends the platform outside the church, and proclaims to the assembled people the tidings, "Christ has risen!" In a moment all the bells are ringing far and near- Bands of music strike up, guns are discharged, rockets ascend, Bengal fires are lig-hted, and the sparkle of tapers spreads fron house to house, and from street to street, till the whole city is alive witl sound and flame.

"Now, my man," said Lockwood, '•you say that you saw tlius and so; how far can you see a boast to know it?" "Just as far as 1 am from you," promptly replied the witness. In another case a thief showed both wit and some logic. He had been convicted of stealing a horse.
