My father iiad determincii to return to I Cuba. 1 iijustly accused of connivance I with ilic lenders of thu iimurrcotion, I wrc'tcheil ai the thought of tho ruin into wliioh our loviiy homo thcro was tailing, ,he couid nut resist the impulse to go , back. Hu took mo liom my girl coin, patiionn at the common school at Mount M Vincent, and having turned all his ! business into mou;v, settled with ate and cur trunks in the Sarajjovsa hotel in | N'cw York to await the departure of tho | steamer it was a bud choice of a Intel. ; Low characters infested it. My life was wretched while left there alouc because :of the rudeness of the evil looking men j who idled their iiiue away in the public I rooius. My only pleasant recollections lof thnl. wretched week are ot an Ameri can »ho played constantly but very ; sweetly', on a i /ruot, iii sillduou tones, liu a rooui overhead. One air that he I played made a deep impression upon ine. It hs'un'ted me. tine evening, as 1 was I listening lo his cornet, there was a rap ion my deor. I opened it and ttireu meiii | walked in. Tlicy a*ked for my father. j Their up;"'aranco and manner frightened j me. Without many previous words ouc | seined IUC uu! tried to throw mo on llie J lied so tlmt my face should fal! in ore inf ll'> pillows The o:licr» sprang to ' open the bureau drawers mi J largest j trunk. 1 uttered several piercing : and I distinctly remember hearing the I eoniut, on which wan being played the | tuuo that hid fascinated me, thrown rudely on the floor above. Then there , was a rush of footsteps on the stairs aud j the man who had bean playing the in : strumeiit burst into the room Ido not knuw what followed. 1 vaguely remcrn ! ber a few words of assurance of future safety, spoken in gentle ar.d musical, j bul indescribably manly tonus, and when ' ; next 1 retarded to consciousness I was ' ill in bed |nd attended by my father. : I Throe day.f later I was carried to the ' steamer and we set sail for Matauzas. ! At my earnest request my father endea vored to find my rescuer from the j thieves, who had evidently sought to ■ rob us of my father's Kioncy, but all ho , ever told tue that ho learned was that ! the gentleman in question was a low niontcbank (so uiy father called him), a member of a circus troupe aud that he ' had left the house on the morning after j the heroic deed he performed. 1 had never been in love. I had never ' ! even had one of the characteristic love | dreams of a maiden. Hut lam of an intensely sentimental disposition, and the soft spoken, stalwart, fearless sliow -1 man tilled my thoughts iu many odd ' hours, llis favorite sir—pathetic aud deeply religious—floated so constantly | through my mind that 1 set wards to it and tang them softly to myself on the ! starlit nights that followed on the voy age. Wc reached Matanxas safe]?, and for I a time were very happy. WJ werejoy : uiusly received by our former friends und I relatives. An Ameticau circus was in i ! tiro tewn, and 1 attended ouo perform- j i ance in the hop." that one leaturo of it j | miyhTehaiiee to be a cornet performance j by Uiy unknown benefactor 1 was dis appointed, of course. It would have been one chance in a million. Tho • troupe waj a fourth rate oije, and the | ' |>erformance began with extreme diior. j dcr owing to an iusult offered by one j buffoons to a ladv only a few feet ahead | of me, a* several belated spectators, of j whom I was one, were making their way ;to tho seats. 1 must- pass over what j followed. Cuba was in her deepest dis ! tress. We ;uflereib with thuu.-jnds of' i others but why recur to that. Our po |. sition and fortune wore restored; we i i movod tc Havana. Father re-establish ed himself iu trade. I was courted by ' I a wealthy gentleman, a member of a i tnr«e business firm there, and am new a happy wife and mother and a proud A mcricun.

Something, who shail say what, *has ' brough't me to the piano. an mstrutrtetit i I have no liking for, and, indeed, ot.ly play with ouo hand, with oue linger, to jbe accurate. Fate is in that linger. 1 | turn ou the revolving chair. I , point that bewitched linger nt the keys. It is i years since 1 have done such a thing'. We luvc been married and in this coun- I try two years, and I have never once i touched a musical instrument. Now 1 slowly and faltering pick out the tuuc I i used to play or the cornet.

The following vivid illustration of how Hot may prove superior to mere foiee ; occurs in "Tl.o Autsent ( f Ihe lireakfast-table" by that most genial Author Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes. 1 dropped into a gentleman's sparring ! exhibition only l ist evemug. It did my j heart good to sec that there were a few ] young and youngish youths loft who! could take caro of their own heads in j j case of an emergency. It is u fine sight, that ef a gentleman rcaolving himself { into t ho primitive constituents of his liu- I inanity. He is a delicate young man ; now, with an intellectual countenance, a slight figure, a subpaflid complexion, a I 1 most unassuming deportment, a mildad | alescent in fact, that any Hiram or Joti- i atliau from between theploughtails would of course expect to bundle with perfoet j case. Oh, he is taking off his gold bow- j ;ed spectacles' Ah, he is divesting him- i self of bis cravat! Why, ho is shipping l | off his coat' Well, here he is, sure o- j nougli, in a light silk shirt, and witb two- I things that look like batter puddings in j the place of his fists. Now see that j other fellow with another pair of baiter puddings,— the big one with the broad ! shoulders; he will cortainly knock the .... . 111 tic man's head off, if lie strikes him. ► Feinting, dodgi»g, stopping, hitting, | countering, - little man's head not off j yet. You might as well try to jump I upon your own shadow as to hit the lit tle man's intellectual features. 11c needn't have taken off the gold-bowed • spectacles at all. Quick cautious, shif ! ty. uiinblo, cool, ho catches all the fierce : lunges or gets out of their reach, till his turn couics, and then, whack goes one of 1 the batter pnddings against the big man's libs, and bang goos the other into the s big one's face, and staggering, shuffling, | slipping, tripping, collapsing, sprawling, > down g e the lug man iu a m sceilune ' ou. bundle.

HOW HE MADE MANURE. Students of agriculture arc familiar with the experiments made t>y Jared Kliot m 1747. He made a long nar row yard into which his cattle were turned at night. Once a month the end fences were tukon out and the whole surface of the yard well plowed The cud fences were then replaced »ud the cattle turned in on the plowed ground. This was kept up through the summer, and in the falll the bot tom of the yard wae carted out and spread upon the fields. When any field needed special manuring, this yard was made as near to it as possible. The «} stem of folding sheep on plowed ground and "cow-ponuing," as prae tieed in parts of the South, are out growths of this old system. So is the more modem spsteui of spading poul try yards frequently and eating tut the surface soil for use in farm practice.— Rural JSeu.- Yorktr.
