To think was something to which Mr.
Xorman -pherson never condescended,
lie rather excelled in feeling. Aud just
now be felt as if tbe only thing in the
world to do was to knock this varle-t
down ; accordingly ho took one step and1
did it. And tben, aeizing Emily's band
himself, only to throw it from him with
a wild and angry outcry at her peifldy,
be was gone ; and he never kuew again

fiervioe, aud never half so plear.el as
when some black tempest followed
them, aud the thick darkness fcbut them
in like the curtain of death and jndjr
meut that they were soon about to lift.
Yet when a twelvemonth had passed,
bis b'tterness began to bo something
les in degree ; occasionally a ray cf
fenpe would break upon bis gloom, ard
the thought would ome to him that,
alter all, be bad never onee spoken of
marriage to Emily Travers in so mary
words ; be had taken everything for
graflted ; be bad left tbe way open for
any other beggar that chesa to come
along. Why, he asked, had be ever

Life looked dark ecough to Normau
Mnepherson at that time, aud you rju?y
be Hire that ho made no effort to set
things right : but with the persistency
of bis Scjttit.li rar-e, be fitted his ba"k
to bear the burdeu ; and when tbo three

What it all UK-ant the could not coiij.c
ture, rjid f-he was too Btuaut-J to r.iako
the tll'.rt. She went about as if fclie
were a moving Rtaluo ; everylhiLg we;-;-ed
ta go oa a long, 1odj way beyond her

did not come; and when day after day
and week after week crept by, aud no ex

kiicwnotLing of Lis whereabout", exejpt

ber world bad olinpsod like a pricLcl

When I'.'uily enme up from that sick

dark valley of the shadow of death, aud

there was a Jock on her pilo face as if

Sophy was married, and went awny ; ber
mother eloped the bouse aud took E n'ly
to Europe, Bc'tlingdown at last in a lit
tle tov.n on tbe M 'diterraneaa phore;,
where they could pick up their reattertd
threads, aud see if they were still Amer
icans ; and the days went by bj quietly,
with the si', w rising and falling of the
blue water of the tideh?63 s'.a like an
indolent breath betide them, that they
hardly knew bow many of them papsed.
If they were not happy days to Emily,
neither were they entirely unhappy ;
only there seemed to be nothing to look
forward to, and, except her mother,
Lothiug to live for.
Njr was there any very giddy variety
in Norman's days, out of pight of shore,
the puu coming up and going clown as if
by machinery, and he only glad to be iu

One day, bcicgn Asiatic waters, tbe
lIic?rsof the At!nwk, that bad paused
on ber way from a more southerly har

on the deck, almost the first perton that
Norman saw was a tall, dark, handsome
fellow with a petr across bis forehead.
In an instaut be Lad turned upon his
heel, aud was striding to another part
of tbo bhip, before Lo knew what Le was
doing, or eu uld make up bis bewildered
mind to action iu relation to this mau,
who mut long nince have been Emily's
husband, as be reasoned. But he was
tot so quick that another foot did not
come striding after, and a band was laid
upon bis shoulder in a manner that
made Lim wheel about at once.

a e'roll through tbe little town, una bad
lost Limse If in the upper part o: it. The

They were married the next day ; and

An e finer of the Humane society who
has been investigating the transporta
tion of cattle from the far West to the
Ea tern market, finds that the animals
are frequently five days without food,
water or rest : jolted alxmt the country,
which causes them to become feverish,
and thus impairs the blood, so that
when tbey are eventually killed and tLe
beef put npon tbe market it is actually
nufit to eat. Of tbe large number of
animuls which die in transit, most of
them find their way to sale, cither as
meat or ookmg lard.
