CHAPTER II. The bouse of Captain Masterton uows, at Pineville, Kentucky, was a fine specimen of Southern classical architecture, being an cxact copy of Major Faquier's bouse in Vir ginia, which was only a slight variation from a well-known statesman's historical villa in Alabama, that everyone knew was designed from a famous Qreek temple on the Primus. Kotbut tbat it shared this resemblance with the Coanty Court House and the Oddfel lows' Hall, but the addition of training jes samine and Cherokee rose to the columns of the portico and over the colonnade leading to ito offices showed a certain domestic dis tinction.

A Birthday greeting. On tliis your birthday, dear, I fain would send A wishing well, Which I would hope as you are my true friend You'll not repel.

O ! judge me not by that which you can sec Fate has decreed Our lives-I can but truly, tenderly, I Wish you " Godspeed." I LACA.
