"No I eau't," ■aid I; "and if brother Homer has an unruly daughter let him manage her. Mine are all married and settled, aud there's peace at lust, and I Lave every reason to bp thankful. Why should 1 upset everything for brother Homer's girl?" And I sat down and answered him anil said it was impossible. But, before I sent my letter to the box, I read bis over again; and really, I felt that I might have spoken more kindly. "Angelina has no mother," he said. "If poor Amanda had lived she would have watched the girl better than I have been able to do. Sister Kitty, you always had a tender heart. I am sure you'll be a mother to my girl." Yes, that is what he had written, and there was I, giving him S seliish, un feeling No. Wny shouldn't I do as Homer asked me to do, after all; and in an unlucky mcment, I tore up...

A Wonderful Cave. Another wonderful cave has recently been discovered near Glasgow Junct ion, Kv. It has alreaiy boon explored for a distance of twenty-three miles in one direction (ealle t the long route) and sixteen miles in another direct ion (called the short route.) The av enues are very wide; a span of horses can easily bo driven through for a dis tance of cloven miles. Three rivers, wide and very deep, are encountered on tho long route. One of them is navigable for fourteen miles, until tho passages become too narrow to admit a boat. This forms the third or river route which has to be explored in a boat. The cave is wonderful beyond description, ami far surpasses in gran deur the Mammoth or any other cave ever before discovered Several mummified remains have been discov ered in one of the large rooms.

NOME BTt IKE NTORIESk Of the mortal enmity existing be tween the black snake and tbe rat tlesnake, two instances have come under my notice, in each of which the rattlesnake proved an arrant coward, making a great noise, while tho black snake did all the lighting; it was rather a Strangling and a squeezing. My attention wasaronsed to it by the rattlesnake passing close to me, paying no attention to my presence, hut apparently endeavor ing to get away from something in pursuit, his rattles springing to their loudest note. 1 was in the act of throwing the gun to stop him, when the black snake passed like a flash, going five yards to the rattlesnake's one, and the way he seized that rat tlesnake by the hack of the neck and went round him was something wonderful. My experience with the king snake and the moccasin make runs through a course of thirteen years, and in that time 1 have seen the king snake get outside of the moc casin many times. When the king first seizes his prey he coils a...
