To night she wove a new pink muslin

that sometimes precede a summer rain
storm. It seemed as if the very crickets
were smothered by the dark and the
ailence. We ran headlong, but we knew
the path well enough, and it was toler
ably smooth. We got well away from
the crowd coming ont liehind us
and had tamed off the maia street and
were half way down the second hill be
yond. I was going to ask Jennie to stop
running, for I was getting out of breath,
when suddenly some obhtacle in the path
struck our feet from under us. We fell
headlong over a mass of something
hairy, soft and warm, and our heads ami
hands were thrown sharply against the
gravel beyond. We could" not recover
our sense before the heap over which

pleasure, Peter McCreery's cow switched

into the road.

grave, and we had run full against her.
When I began to recover my wits I
heard Jennie laughing in a weak," hysteri

then to half shriek again with laughter.
I slowly licked myself up, lame and
bruised, and vry, .rui'cnrpried to

I thought I already heard feet upon
the path, aud I d:'d not want anybody to
see Jennie quite like this. She' made a
great effort to control herself and to get
upon her feet. I took hold of her to try
and help her. But no sooner did she at
tempt to raise herself than she fell back
with a little cry of pain, and then began
to laugh agaiu in the same distressful
"I can't," she said. "It is my foot,
Phoebe. The cow trod upon it, and I
cannot stir. What shall I do ?"
By this time I had caught her excite

sanely as she. "What shall we do?" I
But now there was approaching steps
upon the walk that we both heard. Jen
nie knew them in a minute, and that
minute restored her to herself.
Thtebe," she said, firmly, "I will tell
you what we must do. You must run
home and tell father to come with the
wagon. I will creep up here off the road
side, and keep perfectly still, and nobody
will know I am here till you come back. "
"But I cannot leave you alone so badly
hurt. I cannot, Jennie !"
"Please, Phoebe ! please hurry, dear !
Somebody is coming !"
"I am glad of it," said I. "Somebody
ought to come and help us."
"But, Phcebe, Phoebe do not let them
find us it is John !"
"I don't care if it is, I'm glad of it,
and just remember, if he was going over
to East Side with Jessie Sears he'd not
be here now. You ve been too quick,
Jennie; there's some mistake."
Poor Jenuie could only give a little
moan. of pain for answer. Her ankle
waa beginning to hurt her badly. Little
as her moan was, John was near enough
to catch it, for that instant we heard his
anxious voice calling :
'Girls ! l'hoebe. Jennie, are you
There was silence for a moment, and
then I spoke out : "Yes, John, we are
here, and we want you."
"You want me I What is the matter ?

Dear! how troubled and how kind,
and how full of comfort, too, his fa

"I'm so glad yon have come !" I cried.
"Jennie is hurt."
"Jennie hurt !"
Ah ! you should have heard the tone
of his voice when he said that. I almost
felt as if I ought not to be there to hear
it. Why, there couldn't have been
more feeling in his voice if she had been
his sister and mother and wife and child
all in one !
I guess Johu was pretty well worn out

From the N. Y. Evening Iot1
How came England to get into the
Sondan troubles? As usual, she did not
sail into them, but drifted into them.
The Mahdi, or Prophet, had begun to
make progress in the Soudan before
Englifcu authority became prac'i.caliy
supreme in Egypt by the battled Tel
el Kebir. The Egyptian, Grvernment
could not make up its miad to abandon
this vast region to him or tf chance, while
at the same time it hadreither the moral
energy nor the materia force in men and
money adequate to' eMst him, and re
conquer the territorial which were yield
ing to hun, oratleaafctscaping from their
control. They dyfatched some troop
thither and pJJj tbom nnder
English office uameaHitkB The re
sentatiyes and ftt Cai were fa
by the English Ministry not to
ere with the action of the Egyptian
Government in the matter. Advice was
sometimes given; more frequently it was
not given, but whenever the subject
was mentioned an emphatie declaration
was made that England had nothing to
do with the Soudan, and that the Khe
dive and his ministers must act on their
own responsibility. Neither Mr. Glad
stone's Cabinet, nor Sir E. Baring, seem
to have doubted for a moment that the
proper conrse was to abandon the
Soudan altogether, and withdraw the
Egyptian frontier to a place called Wady
Haifa, or even to Assnan. That they
refused to force this opinion on the Khe
dive was owing to their resolve to make
their occupation of Egpyt purely tempo
rary, and let the Khedive's Government
stand alone as soon as it was possible for
them to do so.
In November the catastrophe came.
Hicks's army in the Sondan was anni
hilated. It was plain that Egypt
could not, of herself, reconquer the
country. The question arose whether
England should intervene by sending
English or Indian troops either to re
establish Egyptian authority and hold
Khartoum, or atleast to insure the safe
withdrawal of such garrisons as remained
in the country. Fearing that to send
troops would involve the permanent oc
cupation of part of the Sondan, and the
creation of an English empire in Equa
torial Africa, Mr. Gladstone's Cabinet
refused to do so, but went so far as to
to advise the Egyptian Ministry to with
draw its garrisons and abandon the
Soudan. When, after much delay, it
appeared that the Egyptian Ministry
would not follow this advice, England
went a step further, quitted her attitude
of irresponsibility, and, early in January,
told the Khedive that if his ministers
would not comply with her wishes he
must dismiss them. He did so, and the
present Ministry of Nubar Pasha came
in to obey her directions. But mean
while time had been lost. The position
of Khartoum had become much more
perilous. Although the Europeaus there
have no claim upon England, since they
went out either in the service of the
Egyptian government or as traders or
their own account, public sympathy was
roused on their behalf, and the feeling
grew stronger and stronger that the
British government ought to take some
steps to rescue them.
The newspapers cried out for this, and
that large cinss who had all along desired
that England should strengthen her hold
on Egypt, and proclaim a formal pro
tectorate over it, swelled the cry for in
tervention in the Soudan, because they
saw that the more she committed her
self there the less could she forsake
There was soon a cry for the dispatch
oi General Gordon, the one Englishman
whose knowledge of the country as well
as his military gifts and personal daring,
pointed him out as tho man for the
crisis. The English Government pro
posed to the Egyptian Ministry to em
ploy him, but the objections raised by
the latter took some time to overcome,
so that it was not till the end of January
that he started. Meanwhile a new
source of anxiety started up on the
coasts of the Red Sea. Baker Pasha
commanded a body of Egyptian troops
there. He was attacked by a band of
natives, Mohammedan Soudanese, half
black, half Arab in blood, who had come
down from the Mahdi's main forces,
and so crushingly defeated him that he
had to escape to the port of Suakim,
of Untish vessels give
sorae protection. The news 6lTlrin'lfS
feat reached England on the very even-
lnor when Parliament met. and ciouded
the spirits of the Government. It was
quite unexpected, for his force was sup
posed to be more than a match for any
antagonist; but it seemed to seal the late
of the Red Sea garrisons, who were now
left without prospect ot rebel. Impa
tience and irritation rose higher in Eug
land. The defeat and the impending
destruction of the garrison were attrib
uted to the sluggishness or timidity
of the Government, which ought, it is
said, to have long ago dispatched troops
from India to the Red Sea coast and
prepared to relieve Khartoum by a forced
march across the desert.
This was the state of feeling which en
couraged Sir Stafford Northcote to move
his vote ot censure, xne tensioD was

The effoct of all this nas been to pro-

1 NATAL HERO.
Dr. Aaiklrr. Ike S.r.r.t jl the Jtmmneue
A Rrmxe OIBc-r wha Did Ilia Waale Daly.
Among the dead of the Jeannette,
brought home to find a restiae place,
was Dr. James M. AmUer. Melville,
when asked by the court whom of the
expedition he would specially commend
for his lhavior, promptly replied : "Dr.
Ambler," and he was unstinted in his
praise of him. Daring the famous re
treat over the ice Ambler was one of th.i
leading spirits. He harnessed two half,
starved Esquimaux dogs to a aled of his
own contriving, on which were Lushed the
I m-'Heal instruments, medical sxores and
follow in the rear with the sic.
tor took his place in advance day after
day, as chief of the rcadniakurs. He
wielded a heavy sledge hammer like a
Hercules, breaking down ice hummocks
to level a road for the boats. It was re
lated of him that he invariably, when the
day's work began, tool!fP" the heaviest
of the sledges, thus setting an encour
aging example to the men. We see him
laying this down for a moment to per
form an iridectomy, one of the most
delicate operations in eye surgery. After
Da Long's beats had reached the Lena
Delta, and failing to find succor for three
weeks or longer, the commander decided
to send two of the strongest of his party
in advance to 6eek aid. The main body
traveled very slowly, most of them being
scarcely able to walk at all, aud having
to transport the sick. D? Long was able
to walk only for five maintes at a time.
Ambler was the stroi t" t of the party,
and the commanding otiioer selected him
and Nindeman to go on ahead for succor
and to save their own lives, if Kissible,
both of them lieing able for a long march.
When this was communicated to the
doctor he told his commander that he
thought he ought not to leave his sick,
as he preferred to share their fortunes 10
the end, and his going away would look
like abandoning them. This doubtless
touched the gallant De Long, whose
first thought seems ever to have been his
high duty to those under his command.
.Noros was then sent in Ambler s steau
and his life was saved. Ambler remaiued
with his sick comrades to the last and
died with them. It is doubtful if the
medical profeasion affords anywhere a
finer example of heroism than this. Im
prisoned on board an iee-lound ship for
twenty-two months, a painful retreat
over weary miles of rough ice, with half
frozen hands and feet, then wandering
about on unknown shore for three weeks,
reduced to a mere struggle for existence,
yet not for a moment was blunted his
keen sense of professional duty. Mel
ville, who found the bodies, is of the
opinion that Ambler was the last one to
die. His frozen body was found in a
sitting attitude, clothed in many suits of
extra clothing, seizing in his right hand
De Long's pistol, taken from his dead
commander's pocket; in solemn and
faithful guard over his dead comrades.
None will ever know the dreadful extent
of his sufferings dnring those last hours,
or possibly days, of his life, alone with
his dead, starving, exhausted and hope
less. Faithful messengers seut by his
grateful country have brought home the
mortal remains of this noble son to an
aged mother, to lie afc-rt-t in his own vil
lage churchyard in Fancier county. Va.
Peace to him and her, uvl honor to the
memory of this noble surgeon whose life
was given to his country and his duty !
A REMARKABLE WOMAN.
The Story of Katie MrDonnell Shot by Her
From the New York World.
It has become the habit in these days
to rank men and women as heroes and
heroines 9n small provocation. The title
has been accorded to many persons less
worthy of it than Katie McDonnell, the
young nursemaid who was shot by her
drunken suitor Sunday night.
Katie evidently has remarkable will
power as well as a loving nature. This
is shown by the fact that while she had
given her affections to Dennis Hennelly,
the brute who attempted to t.ke her life,
she listened to the advice of her brothers
and refused to marry him until he had
reformed his bad habits. It was for this
refusal that he shot her at the door of
the house in which she was in service.
Dangerously if not fatally wounded,
Katie did not shriek and fall as an ordinary
woman would have done. She knew that
the ruflSin would have completed his
work had he supposed her to be wounded,
so she told him she was not hit, and
besought him to run away to avoid ar
rest. Then she entered the house, fell at
the top of the stairs, quickly recovered

HIS WIFE KEEl'S HENS.
THE FHEMDETI I. HEN HOI E.
laa Waa Khwi W arre la Flad
From r.-k't Sun.
There is no answer that was ever re
ceived to a question, that contains more
sarcasm, than that received by a man
who asked what business a well-dressed
gentleman of leisure wss in. "What
business is he in," says the party que,
tioued. "Oh, I believe his wife is
dressmaker." The question is ofter
asked by visitors to Fremont, Ohio
What business is ex-President Haye
in at ptt?Lu-Z- and tDe answer in van
ablyia: "Iliswife kWps hens." TA'pl
who are offended to aee the husliand V'
a dressmaker, or lady engaged iu otht
respectable business, loanng the uapp a
hours away, should not confound Mr.
Haves with anv such person. The fact
of Mrs. Hayes going into the hen trade,
is no reflection npon her husband, and
be is a great help to her, as he was when
she was President Those who have
visited Fremont say they do not know
what the laly would do without Mr.
Hayes. He knows all of the hens by
name, and can tell at a glance w hich are
the best providers of eggs. There is
perhaps, no man in this eonntry who is
a more successful hunter of hen's eggs
than Mr. Hayes. A hen cannot deceive
him. He seems to know instinctively
when a hen has put up a job to go oil
somewhere, to a retired spot and "steal
her nest, as the say ingis, and he watches
the hen. He does not follow the hen
directly, as some lest, brainy man would
do, and thus arouse th suspicions of the
deceptive fowl, but seems to go off the
other way, though his eye is upon that
hen. It is said to be an interesting sight
to see a hen wandering off down amoug
the gooseberry bushes, clucking and dig
ging for worms, as though she had no
thought of deceiving her benefactor, aud
Mr. liaves walking the other way, whis
tling, "We'll never miss the water till the
well runs dry, and not appearing to
notice the hen. Suddenly the hen dis
appears and goes under a bush and lays
au egg. It is then that Mr. Hayes gives
play to the massive braiu that he has
constantly concealed about his persnn.
He makes no memorandum but keeps in
his head the location of every such nest
Some men would go right to the hen,
catch her in the act and accuse her to
her face of duplicity and double dealing
but Mr. Hayes is not that kind of a man.
When the hen comes back to the lieu
house ho does not show any signs of
chagrin to the hen. Does not look at her
as much as to say: "I am onto your
scheme, old lady," but treats her just
the same as any other hen, thus disarm
ing her of all suspicion that her little
plot is discovered. But the next day,
after the miserable hen has laid her
second egg and gone away, the ex-President
goes to the nest and takes one of
the eggs, and so on each day, the hen.
who is not good at mathematics, think
ing she is laying np treasures where
neither moth, nor rust, nor ex-Presidents
doth corrupt After a hen has laid a
dozen or so eggs thus, and begins to
think of setting, she looks at the result
of her labors, and decides that it is the
work of an incendiary aod gives up the
job. The ex-President is said to be one
of the most expert hen detectives in this
country, and Mrs. Hayes would not be
without him for the world. He is as
valuable, also, in feeding the hens. It
is alleged that he can make a bushel of
corn go further in a flock of hens than
any man in Ohio, and woe be to any hen
that attempts to play any hog game on
Rutherford B. He singles ont such a
hen, and while he says very little to her,
the stern look on his face is enough to
cause any hen to even wish she were
dead. His political experience has been
valuable to him in his present occupa
tion. Not Jong ago there was an old
rooster in the floak that claimed he was
the boss, and tried to take the position of
leader, but Mr. Hayes organized an eight
to seven commission, composed of fifteen
roosters, eight of which had been edu
cated by Mr. Hayes, and the objection
able rooster was bounced so quick it
made his head swim. There is no sight
that is pleasauter at Fremont than to see
Mr. Hayes come to town with his little
basket of eggs, and trade them off for a
drawing of tea and a few other simple
needs of the household. It is always a
comfort to a nation to see one of its
rulers, who is retired to private life, make
himself generally useful, and this great
and good man will need no monument,
as his name will go down to history as
the greatest hen man the world has ever
How Plate-Glass I Made.
To cast, roll, polish and burnish plate
glass requires machinery, of special con
struction and a "plant" that is costly by
reason of its complex nature. The pour
ing of liquid glass from the furnace upon
the cast-iron plate, and the subsequent
rolling are processes comparatively sim
ple. Any house-keeper who has used a
rolling-pin on a batch of pie- crust dongh
performs an operation very similar to
this stage of plate-glass making.
It is the succeeding processes of grind
ing and polishing and burnishing that
require the time and costly mechanism.
After leaving the eolls and bed plate the
glass is rippled a id rough, and only fit
for grating and skylights. Each plate
must be transferred to machines that re
semble tho turn-tables of a railway. On
that revolving platform the glass is ce
mented in a bed of plaster of Paris and
the machine started. Bearing heavily
on the surface of the glass are blocks of
metal, and while in motion the surfaces
are supplied with sharp sand and a con
stant stream of water.
The next stage of the glass-grinding
process is the same as to machinery, but
instead of sand coarse emery is used.
The finer emery is used on another re
volving table, and so on for half a dozen
times. The final polishing is done by
heavy reciprocating devices fd with
rouge, and maintaining a constant back
ward and forward motion, and also
lateral movement over the surface of the
crystal. All this requires the assistance
of a large force of men. many of them
The Bright Light.
A European journal relates that a few
months since workmen employed upon
some constructions on the bank of the
river Dnieper, in Cena-al Russia, em
ployed the electric light to enable them
to prosecute their labors at night The
brilliant rays or light attracted so many
millions of nocturnal moths, beetles and
other insects, that from time to time it
was necessary to stop work and set all
hands to destroying the clonds of winged
victims that frequently completely ob
scured the light This suggested the
idea of employing the electric light to
destroy nocturnal insects prejudicial to
agriculture, and experiments in that
direction are to be tried next spring. Not
only to insects, but to fish, the light
proved fatally attractive. Its rays,
directed to the surface of the water, draw
together vast quantities of all the fishes
found in the Dnieper, and when within
the charmed field of illumination they
lay crowded together in masses, seem
ingly blinded and stupefied. The work
men improving the opportunity, made a
notable haul of fish.

A lesson in soups was given hi Miss
Parloa's cooking school, New York, aud
white stock, mnllagatawny, lmnillon and
consomme were prepared before the
class. White soup was first made. To
four pounds of veal, which had lieen sim
mered in a gallon of water for four
hours, was added half an onion, a pars
nip, a turnip and a stick of cinnamon.
The soup was then cooked one hour
longer, and strained through a sieve
when it was ready to be served.
In the preparation of mnllagatawny, a
fowl weighing three pounds, throe
pounds of can veal, two large onions,
two large slices of carrots, four stalks of
celery, three tablespoonfuls of butter,
one tablespoonful of curry-powder, four
tablespoonfuls of Hour, salt and pepper,
and five quarts of water were used. A
piece of chicken fat, equal t two table
spoonfuls, was taken from the chicken
and melted in the soup-pot. The vege
tables, which were cut fine, were put in
the soup-pot and cooked twenty minutes
with frequent stirring, men the veal
was added, and the whole was cooked
fifteen minutes longer; then the chicken
and water were added. 1 he soup was
skimmed and set tack where it wonld

Mr. Lowell, in his ni. work, de
seniles the xisilion f 'Ih-so soldiers as
little, if any, above that of slave. The
soldiers, he says, really got nothing for
their American service. They had their
rations, their clothing, and their pay, it
is true; but these would have horn theirs
if they had staid ut home in then bar
riuks. It is their petty rulers who wete
aid for their service, their hidshis,
and their dangers; and if they eie
killed or wounded it was the rulers who
were compensated at a fixed pr.ev for
the loss of their hum an cattle. j
The recrnita furnished to k'-cp up f
supply suffered more than the sold
who first left their homes. They y
men enlisted by force, kidimM-d, in a
word, and shijijx-d oil' to America like
convicts or swine six men to a lerth in
a ship's hold. Ouce kiduaed, the oor
fellows had little chance of escajie, for
the ietty Priuces knew their trade as
slave drivers very well. In Wurtetn
burg, if a recruit eacacd or a soldi, r
deserted, the whole parish was required
to go iu pursuit, and in order to make
their pursuit earnest and effective they
were required to furnish tine of their
own uniuii. r in the place of the deserter
if he could rot lie caught. The clergy
were required to read this order from
the pulpit once a mouth, in order to im
press ujKin their congregations a sense
of their duty and resKiiisibihty. There
were fines and imprisonment at hard
labor for every one who dared lulp a
fugitive, and death was the eiial(y for
Many of the Heasian prisoner taken
by the Americans were permitted to go
into the country and hire themselves
out as farm laborers, and when we con

which they mg"iavou. punt.m, anu w.e

improve their fortuues, it seems some
what strange that so small a proportion
of either the prisoners or the soldiers on
duty deserted. Congress held out in
ducements to them to do so, and set ac
tive agencies at work to persuade them
to change their allegiance. They were
aesnred of exemption from military
duty, and were promised lands if they
wonld abandon a service to which they
were s-iipposed to owe nothing but
hatred. And yet, according to the lt
estimate that Mr. Lowell's investiga
tions have enabled him to form, only
abont 5,000 of the German troojwt de
serted during the entire seven years.
German writers assert that there were
fewer desertions from the ranks of Die
mercenaries than from thosi of the
British regiments, and Mr. Lowell ex
plains the fact by saying that desertion
was at once leas easy and leas attractive
to the German than to the English

A very sung and strong roblssrs' roost
was recently discovered by a eonple of
Denver citizens in a gulch near Webster,
Col. They hail been visiting in the
neighborhood, and on returning Lome
had lost their way, and in traveling
abont came across a cabin. In it waa a
rude table, some chairs, a large stove, a
good supply of fuel, six loaded revol
vers, cartridge-belt, and several spurs.
They took possession of it for the night,
and fastened the heavy door with a huge
bolt that fitted into slots in the logs.
About midnight they were awakened by
Bounds outside. The owners had re
turned. One of the men wanted to know
of his companions who w as in the cabin,
and asked if he shouldn't force the door
