Fatherland, for iliei; f should not

.Carl, might love me.'
Kui Carl never came near her
now and Onlv thought of her as
cross and fretful Klise, and wished
Gretchn had less vanity with her
face, and a rather large heart in
her slim body."
One day it Was in the time of

the Khinc to bring in water, and as
she dipped her pail in the clear
ripples, she saw her own face re

sunlight playing on the castle

vineyards, and the thought of Car",

w ho was there also.
'Ah me! she sicrhed. 'what a
gift is beauty !'

up she saw an old woman -a very
old, deformed woman- standing
near to her. 'Elise,' she said, 'I

Presently, people began to re

the maidens sought her ont and
talked to her about their lovers,
and the youths declared that Elise,
the miller's daughter, was the
nicest girl that side of the Rhine,
and Carl learnt to thiiik how dif
ferent she was from Grctehen, and
learnt tV love her, and all through
the Fatherland there was not s

this time she never once saw her
own-5 face, but turned aw ay her
head when she dipped her pails in
the stream, and through all the"
miller's house was not to be found

Eiis felt herself thrilled ' with
Some years ago when the writer was
a boy, there lived in Southern Mary
land an old man by the name of Davis,
who was passionately fond of raccoon
hunting, and for this purpose kept sev
eral very vicious dogs; one especially so
which ho called Flora.
Now it happened that he had a
daughter who was a special favorite of
Johnny Wilcox, a young man that
lived ini the neigborhood, but from pome
cause uot known to everybody, Johnny
met with serious opjwisition from the
Id gentleman until on a certain night,
Johnny with several other young men,
joined the. old gentleman .in a raccoon
hunt, when a circumstance transpired
which entirely changed the current of
the old man's feelings.
Soon after leaving home the dogs
struck the trail of a raccoon and in a
few minutes forcod him to seek shelter
by going up into a large tree. The
ftportsmen on reaching the tree, (being
directed by the Laying X)f the dogs,)
siw the racco-o on a limb of the tree
about fifteen feet aboe the ground.
Now it happened that, ths old man
was the onlv one in the i-artv that
could climb up ihe tree; so up he went
and roaclud the limb all safe, but ou
going out uj'On the limb in order to
f hakc the raccoon off, he accidently
slipped and got on the -'under side of
the limb, clinging to it vviih hands and
feet. He struggUd manfully to get on
tlw limb, but failed, and finding that
he must inevitably fall, and seeing iio
relief for him he essayed to pray; (now
it was not for the fall he dreaded, but
his dogs, which were accustomed to at
tack and kill whatever animal they saw
fall,) and tha thought of Leing torn to
pieces by his own dogs, ci'.uae! the per-
