As Is the general custom , the farmers hero
count their cattle every Sunday. A week
ago Sunday everything checked O. 1C , but
the fact , now develops tbat a number of
farmers in countlntr last Sunday Jind they
nro short from two to throe of their best fut
steers. Where they nro , or who got them , Is
not known. It is supposed that somebody on
some niRht during the week passed through
and gathered up a cur load and shipped them
from some adjoining town. The unlucky
farmers feel pretty sere at having the profits
of their stock-raising taken in this manner.

The next dny und the next the yellow

nt , this dumb admiration.
Ono morning she found on her doslc ix
Dticknga uncannily interesting. It waa
wrapped in n ( Jhinoso gilt cloth ot
golduii tissue ombroidurod in Chinesu
tlguros. Uoinoving this the girl discov
ered n box of pnpior mtvoho , wrought in
wondrous designs ot boasts and and
birds , a regular illustrated dullriiun
It-unions of a box. Lifting tlio lid ro-
vonlud n thin , white pauor , with "Moll-

lay n wealth of Hwocla , nuts , candlcB
nnd dates , prepared in such a way as
only the Chinese can , nil upside down
in a surprising sort ot way , with syrup
in balls that intiilo you wonder how they
were llxod. and all yorts of cpngloinura-

The girl distrusted these enticing
things , which goes to provo that she
was timid unmitrh for a Chinese wife , if

youth of America. But she said she
couldn't , and nho wouldn't touch" the

The Chitinnmn and the boxes came
regularly for several days. The young
lady would not touch them , hut her
comrades enjoyed the gifts too well to
doubt them.
The last visit was a fo\v days ago. lie

The girl , in mortal terror of being1
espoused by some compelling celestial

out ; nnd then the Chinaman , showing
for the first time some human emotion ,

was tlio end ot ti Chinese courtship.

A tradesman of Lyons , Franco , of the
name of Grivet , a man of mild and sim
ple manners , was sentenced during tno
French revolution , with a number of
others , to die next morning , says the
Philadelphia Press. Those who wore
already in the cave pressed around the
new-comer to sympnthi/.o with nnd for
tify him. But Grirct hnd no need of
consolation , ho was as calm as if he had
been in his own house. "Come and sup
with us , " said they , "this is the last inn
in the journey of life ; to-morrow we
shall arrive nt our long home. " Grivet
accepted the invitation and supped
heartily. Desirous to sleep as well , ho
retired to the remostost corner of the
grave , and burying himself iuhisstraw ,
seemed not to bcfatow a , thought on his
approaching fate.
'J he morning arrived. The other
prisoners wore ti 'd together nnd led
away without Grivct's perceiving any
thing or bolng perceived. Fast asleep ,
enveloped in his straw bed , he neither
saw nor was seen. The door of the wive
was locked , and when he awoke , awliilo
after , ho was in the utmost astonish
ment to find himself in perfect.solitude.
The day passed , and no new prisoners
wore brought into the cave , the judges
did not sit for two days. Grivet re
mained all this time in his solitudcsub-
sisting on some scattered provisions
which he found in the cave , and bleep
ing every nigtit with the same trnu-
quility as on the llrst. On the evening
of the fourth day the turnkey brought
in a now prisoner , and became as ono
thunderstruck on lioolng a man , eras , ho
almost believed , inspirit in the cave.
lie called the Hoiitiiiul , who instantly
appeared. "Who arc you'said ho to
Grivet , "and how came you hero ? "
Grivotansworcd that ho had boon there
four days. "Doubtless. " ho added ,
'when my companions in misfortune
wore led n-way to death I slept and
heard nothing , and no ono thought to
awaken mo. It , was my misfortune ,
einco all would now have been passed ,
whereas I have now lived with the
prospector douth nlwavn before me , but
the misfortune now will undoubtedly be
