lazjr went one morning together into
the country. Suddenly thay saw before
them a splendid castle, built on the side
of a mountain a long; way off; it glisten
ed in the sun, so that it was a pleasure
to look at it. . ' .

With these words she drew her cloak
from the young man's grasp, and rolled
alo'ng at such speed that she was SJon
Iom to sight. Industrious returned to bis
comrade, told htm what had happened,
and said ; "I am off ; willyou come with
me!" . . ' i
The other replied ; '
What! are you mad ? Yes, I would
if I bad ahorse to carry me." . j
."'God-bye.'" his' friend" said, and com
menced his journey. ' : r --
Lazy, thouht.to himself, 'walk away,
old boy ; chance is ofton' favorable to a
man in his sleep, perhaps it will be so
to rae to-day.". Then he Jay 0 a his
back, and Jooked.though somewhat wist
fully, at the glittering castle '
. All at once he felt something snuffing
round his ' ear, and on slowly turning
round, be 'saw a splendid white iiorse
shading its mane and neighing with de
light as itinhaled the fresh morning
breeze. " j
'Did I not ay so ? " the man thought
there is no.thing like trusting to luck
Come here, my horse, wei. will be good
friends1 . - . ; -
Mthlhese words he leaped into the
saddle, the horse shot off like the wind.
He soon caught' up to his companion,
whom he laughed at for. riding, shank's
mare. But industrious would not let
himself.be put out, but walked, actively
and surely along his road.- r
On a woody eminence the horse came
to a sudden halt at midday. !

that is true wisdom. -The castle won't
run away from us, but our appetite may,

when his stomach was full and sleep

What a sleepit was! he had never

reclining on silken pillows, and-very;
thing he wished for was brought hun
without his having occasion to move a
finger." At last he Tancied a band was
playing a well-known air and on that
he woke up. He rubbed his eyes and
saw that the sun was fast sinking behind
the castle, and threw its parting beams
in his face. But upon the valley before
hirn echoed the voieeof his comrade, who
was singing . the tune which had just
sounded in bis ears.
"Goodness gracious !" Lazy said, it's
time to fee' darting. ..'But were's my
Not a norsa was to be seen for miles
aforrnd, but an old grey donkey was gra
zing on the side of the hiil.
He shouted, he enticed, he whistled, but
it was of no use, the horse strayed away
and the donkejTwould not come. So he
was at last obliged to walk up to the

The donkey offered no objection., but
troi'ed on with him, though of course
Lazy did not like it so well as the hors;
which had gone so swiftly; and had been
far more comfortable to ride.
It soon began to grow dark, and heavy
clouds collected The lights,' too, were
flaming in he castle, as could bo clearly
seen. Then Lfczy's troubles began.
The donkey crawled ou more slowly
than ever, and dark-forest. No kindness
no patting, no tugging at the rain
availed ; and vheo the tSonkryVrnaaier
began tiaing hia fists and heels,, the anl
imal made a. very, shert job of it; head
down and back up, and my rider lay f ul

All at once be stunlled on something-
like 'a saddle. He was just going to
mount a cold, clararay animal. He
counted ; it was eleven. It was hih
time to be off ; he could reach the castle
in an hour so he leaped into the snddle.
It was not at all a bad seat, for it was
very soft, and at the back was a tall sup-
port. Tee new animal also rnoveu very

nearer the castle, and was enabled to
count the illuminated windows, " w&n
ihe moon emerged from the clouds ana
shone down brightly upon him. "
Oh, wonder ! what did be see then?!
The animal orr which he was riding was
Neither horse nor donkey, but a gigantic
snail, as large as a calf, and its shell had
served as a support to his back. It wa
only natural that, it could not get on more
rapidly. An icy shudder came over him
but it waof no use, after all ;be uwas
only too glad to reach his. journey's end
in any way. Al this moment the distant
clock struck the first stroke pf twelve,
which auoonced with long intervals the
midnight hour. At the same moment
the snail emerged from the forest, and
the splendid palace of Fortune was be

" The ManVaot' (Minn.) Union, cf a
late' date, gives the following particulars
of the atrccious murder of a whole fain
by the Sioux Indians:
The first that was seen of Indians was
on Monday in the "vicinity of Shelby
viile. They evidently came through the
lines by the way of Willow Creek, and
followed down cn the east side of Blue
river. They stole two horses and the
neighbors ' pursued them, and pressed
them so close that they let one of. the
horses go. : " - ' ' v L
As there was no one leftc to tell the
story of how the" Indians' entered - Mr.
Jewett s house, we have to judge a great
deal from the position of 'things in the
bouse some three hours after the murders
were committed. . . ' .
" Mr. Jewett's farm is on the reserva
tion,' five miles from Garden City The
houre is built of logs, and has two doors,
one on the norih and the lother brt the
elst side. It was about 6 1-4 in the
morning that the Indians approached the
house and entered by the east door.
The fahiTly had just goi through break
fast. A. J. Jewett ran out doors into
the garden in the; direction of a ravine
on ihe uorth side of the house, where
ihe hired, man, Chas. Tyler, was ai

striking him in the breast. Frornappear
