A KlrnBgc lint Tree lUtmaace.
In the soutli of Scotland, about eight
tulle north from Annan, is a graveyard
called Kirkconncl, a lovely but post
sequestered spot. Of all the cemeteries
J graveyards which I have seen In any
country, to me this is the most attract
ive. There is a -weird, inexpressible
look about the place so much in keeping
with a graveyard. It may be a feeling
ot my own, but I never did like a large
cemetery, such as you may see at Cincin
nati or Brooklyn. In a large family, a
large church or city, there is of necessi
ty a certain amount of estrangement.
The same is always true ol a graveyard.
Tim sleepers mjcIu to be more pecceful
when they Iiavc had come acquaiutauce
with each other. The mingling of dust
makes us long to lie where wc have been
known: and where wc know tome at
least of those who intend to lie lcsidc
us. Kirkconncl is jutt such a place as
this, A little over half an acre of
ground, a family graveyard it ecciiis.
Yet fiom the beginning of the fifteenth
century, men and women have been said
to sleep in that quiet little place. And
connecting the past with the present, the
last time I was there some three years
ago a bed bad just been made for one
ot my school fellows; and he too sleeps
sweetly in Kirkconncl, among those who
have slept for centuries.
Belorc narrating the touching tale
which has made Kirkconncl famous, let
js visit the place. It lies on the left
bank of the river Kirtle this was desig
nated' river before the Hudson, Niagara
or Mississippi tveic heard of which
rises far nwayt among these hills to the
north, in EsdalShoor, nsd falls into the
Sotwav Firth. Short as its journey may
be, the scenery alongits course com
pares well with anythicc: which I have
fceen in ail my travels. We enter at
the poitcr's gate, and pass v along
the winding path which overlooks the
stream. That grand residence to the
right, with its red granite-like appear
ance, is called Springkcl), and belongs
to Sir Johii Hcion Maxwell, u foolish
kind of man to be a baronet, but his
princely icccme is sufficient to keep
him. "What a lcngniGcenl appearance
his house makes. The situation is the
most enchanting which the mind of the
poet cculd wit-h, or of which the, artist
could dream. Following up the bed of
the liver for about a mile, we come to a
beautiful meadow, studded here and
there with old oak and thcotnut trees.
Iu the distance the ground rises abruptly,
still urcen, beautifully rounded, adorned
with trees which now stand between you
and the sky; while in the fertile meadow
cattle are feeding, as fat and fair looking
as those seen by Phaioah in his dream.
On the other side of the stream the bank
rises high, and is covered with trees and
sin uhs, all chid in their summer vest
ments. ' And now ne have come to the little
graveyard, carefully fenced all around;
the tombstones arc scarcely seen; no one
desecrates the place by cutting the glass
and giving it to the cattle. It grows in
the spiing time, keeps the ground cool
all summer, and when winter comes
down the valley it keeps the sleepers
warm. TLc trees stand around in silence
watching, casting their melancholy shade
on the couch of the silent sleepers. The
bed of the river is more rocky there than
elsewhere, yet the bubbling is not so
loud; its voice seems hushed, and the
stream steals past on tip-toe, lest it
should break lhc slumbers of the dead.
Even the thoughtless living who visit
the place have a' feeling of awe creep
over them, such as wc have when visiting
any old dimly lighted cathedral, when
the organ peals forth its unutterable
sounds. But how can I describe Kirk
connel? Imagination dare not play
hide-and-seek there; you must visit it
yourselt if you would see the picture.
"SVhht a sweet place to lie down when
our day's work is over; nothing to break
the slumbers till the trumpet sounds, and
tne (tin ana bustle of business will not
prevent its first distant peals from being
On the north side of the graveyard aie
the ruins of an old Roman Catholic
chapel, all overhung with ivy. The
family of Springkell use this old sanctu
ary as a mausoleum; und by peering
through the iron grating, tr climbing up
that crumbling corner, you can see how
littlo difference there is between demo
cratic and aristocratic dust. Walking
among the tombstones -yon see very
strange devices. TLc-skull and .cross
bones have been in great repute long
ago. There is another old stone with what
might be called a wood cut of Adam and
Eve. There is another stone on which is
caned the figure of a female lacing her
self so tightly that her eyes protrude as
"the eyes of a toad," and under her a
man is driving like "J elm the son of
Nimski"for a doctor; but it is ail in
vain; he is too late, for she died and
sleeps now in common dust. Then there
' are such quaint inscriptions: some in
Latin, which arc read only now and then.
Thefe we suppose mark where the
neighboring schoolraasteis have been
laid to rest. Some in home made poetry
which limp as they go. There are some
seutenccs in prose, which flatter the
dead, but no ows knows whether justly
or unjmtly; and indeed no ose seems to
care. Some passage of SciiDtnre fella
that the sleeper once had a hope of a
better future. Some ycu can tell only
the year iawhii:h they died; in others
that even is effaced, and nothing mow is
known save that some oae slumbers
there in peace. How tumsmaisg these
quiet cotuitry graveyards of Scotland;
how fell of sssociations. What lone
sonu pAaeef , they were wont to be.
Hannted. with dead llfhts, straago dia-
fowade, antil jonr spirit was so
overcome with fear that you could
scarcely hold it in the tsbcrnsclo.
"Itere solemn Sllrnre i!U pnthronsil.
And sacrr-d Awe confounds."
But let me now return to my story
This is the grave of "Fair Helen of
Kirkconnel." The two lovers rest under
this flag of "old red sandstone." On the
stone we sec the rude outline of a sword,
a carabine and a cross. All that remains
of the Latia epitaph is HicjaeetAdamus
Fleeming here lies Adam Fleeming.
And the touching story that tradition has
handed down is sonsething like the fol
A fair young lady named Helen Max
well was heiress of Kirkconnell, now
Springkell. She was very beautiful; of
a tall, slender form. She had dark
flowing hair, and eyes of the same color,
which lent to her complexion a wonder
ful charm. Her movements were all
characterized by the utmost case and
majesty. Her physical graces were in
tensified by the purity and sweetness of
hi-r mind. She was loved by every one
who knew her. Two young men in the
immediate vicinity loved her more than
all others: one was named Bell of Black
ct House, two miles down the river; the
other named Fleeming of Mossknowe,
about eight miles further down. Tradi
tion has it ihat a few years later the
F!cmiugs were burnt in their tower
rather than surrender themselves to their
enemies. This incident originated, part
at least, of the name of the paihh where
this occuircd, Kirkpatrick Fleeming.
Of the two rivals for the heart of
Helen Maxwell, Fleeming was victorious.
His irullantry and noble bearing won
the heart of "Fair Helen" in spite of his
opponent. Dell was favored by her
parents, Lonocr, who openly objected
to Fh cmiug's viiitp, causing these to be
less frequent arid comparatively in secret.
Bell saw that he va5 1 o longer received
by Helen a in former days ; her lustrous
eje gleamed no u.oie with love for him.
The music of her voice was no longer
his. He knew that she loved Adam
Fleeming. who was oftcner in her com
pany. Brooding over his loss, he deter
mined to be leveDgcd for the insult and
wrong he had received at the hand of
Fleeming. Several times he sought an
opportuwty to tane his life; he waylaid
him between Mossknowe and Springkell ;
and though urged on by desperation, he
was afraid to meet his antagonist in
open right. Then he would wander
about the woods near Springkell, catch
ing sight now and then of Helen, some
times accompanied by his mortal foe.
He learned from some ol the servants
whom he had bribed for the purpose
that the two lovcis sometimes met in the
twilight at this sequestered place the
old graveyard strange that lovers
should wa.k there. l)uy after day he
concealed himself among the bushes on
the other side of the Kittle, waiting like
a lion for his piey. Still the lovers weie
happy in each other's worth, looking
forward to yeais of joy. We can almost
see them late in the afternoon of that sad
day, emerging from .he wood beyond
the meadow. Slowly they approach the
old craveyard, she leaning on his arm,
listening to the waihlmg of birels which
seem to join with them in their love.
The settirg sun is shining fell in their
faces; she stoops to pluck tome wild
gewans from the grass. Now he whis
pers in her cor some accents of manly
love, while she speaks the language of
her hcait, by her downcast eyes and
They have now reached the graveyard,
and are just passing through that clump
of trees, about to gaze into the river;
perhaps sit down on the bank, and
dream about the stream of life flowing
on and on. She is still leaning on his
arm; they have now reached the place
where that old cross, so roughly carved
stand, and has stood since then; when
she, ever quick to think of evil, hears
some one among the bushes on the other
side of the stream." They look again,
and Bell steps from his hiding place
with a look of wild determination, a
carabine in his hand, which is instantly
leveled at Fleeming. She throws her
self into Fleeming's arms, thinking that
Beh's love for her will save her lover.
But it is too late; the fatal trigger has
been drawn, and she receives in her
snowy bosom the bullet intended for
another. She dies in the embrace of
Adam Fleeming. Tenderly her lover
laid her down on the grass, while the
warm blood was still flowing frcm her
heart; crossed the stream with . single
bound, pursued her murderer and over
took him., A desperate battle ensued,
in which Bell was slain on the spot.
Slowly an I sadly Fleeming returned to
the lonely churchyard, where he had
left the lifeless form of his lovely Helen.
He now lifted her, carried her in his
arms to the old familv mansion, and
told the sad story ot her death and his
vengeance. His grief was uncontrolla
ble. At last she was buried in the old
churchyard, ard this is her grave. That
old cross which you sec was erected on
the spot where she fell. An iron plate
has at one time been inserted, which has
long since been lost, doubtless bearing
the inscription of uFair Helen's" sad
death. People in the neighborhood
will not soon forget the touching tradi
tion which has been handed down
through so many generations.
The woe-worn young man was bow in
a sad condition. The Bells sooeht for
vengeance, Le floag away Lis- sword
that was now of no more use to him.
He left his native country, wandered
over the Continent of Earope seeking
for what he had lost, and lost never awe
to fad. He soaght in vain to banish
from Ids nund the image ot "Fair
Helen." She whom he loved so pas
noaatelj in life, he could never forget
la hk sleep he womld seek to aeoaha hit
dying bride, to stem the bload which
was gushing from her heart. Anon, he
would lay her tenderly down, and with
muttercdjvengeancc pursue her murderer.
Then he would awake far, far awayjrom
the place where all this "had transpired,
with a heart so cold and empty.
At last he returned to his native land;
and hurrying back to Kirkconncl, trav
ersed all the scene ef this narrative again.
Then with the wildest sorrow, he
stretched himself upon his lover's grave
died and was buried by her aide.
"Soon shall we meet bo more to pin,
In climes ot bliss!" he cried.
Then on his mnen-lored Helen's temb.
He laid htm down and died.
There arc two versions of the old bal
lad entitled "Fair Helen," and as loth
are good and comparatively unknown, I
may lie allowed to quote them here.

Though I disdained be.
O, Helen sweet and maist complete.

Why She Stopped Her Paper.
Brooklyn Argut: She came bouncing
through the sanctum door like a cannon
ball, and without pausing to say "How
d'ye do?" she brought her umbrella
down on the table with a mighty crash,
and shouted :
"I want to stop my paper."
"All right, madam."
"Stop it right ciT, too," she persisted,
whacking the table again, "for I waited
long enough for you to do the square
She quieted down for a moment, as we
ran our finrs down the list of names,
and when we reached hers and scratched
it out, she said:
"There; now mobbe you'll
ought to after this, and
woman jest cause t tie's
rich lolks happen to have
wheezy squallcr born to them, you puff
it to the skies and make it out an angel;
but when poor people have a baby you
don't say a word about it, even if it is
the squarest-toed, blackest-haired, biggest-headed,
noblest little kid that ever
kept a woman awake at nights. That's
what's the matter, and that's why I
stopped my paper."
And she dashed out as rapidly as she

One thing that particularly attracted
our attention was a Bauxo Pp, for
hay, broom corn, husks, rags, etc built
C. A. A. Arnold, of 110 Court Avenue,
Pes Moines, Iowa. It is at once exceed
ingly efficient and ptriaV.t. Bale of hay
made by it weigh 200 lbs. earh, and two
men (with no other power) will make
from 40 to 50 bales per day of 10 hours.
It can be taken to pieces and loaded on
a wagon in ten minutes, and put up
again ready for work as easily. It is
undoubtedly the most rapid and efficient
hand press of which we have any knowl
edge. The complete machine weighs
about 1100 lbs. Juit in this connection
we would speak of a little matter that
seems not to be understood by men gen
erally who deal in "flour and feed," viz.:
that wherever that business Is remunera
tive, it will pay to handle baletOiay.
One of the most attractive machines
exhibited on the fair grounds was a
steam hammer invented and patented ky
Wilson &, Stein, and mantttactured oy
Brooks, Wilson & Stein of Pes Moines.
It is under perfect control of the ham
merman, when working at full speed, to
strike a blow from one poutid to livo
thousand pounds, just as lie wishes for
the woik he is doing. They have pat
terns and arc now prepared to supply
any one wishing a hammer on short
notice. Any firm manufacturing any
thing in the iron line should have one.
The hammer is complete itself; all that
is necessary is to place it on a good
foundation of t)mler, attach a steam pipe
to the bi iler &m vc arc ready for work.
They are offering these hammers very
cheap compared with hammers mude by
others; they arc even cheaper than the
ordinary trip hammer and far sujerlo.-.
