If there is one thing I Late it is,
I am only seven years of age, but I j
have seen enough of whiskey to make ;
me hate it forever and forever.
I can't understand why people wiii !
drink it when it is such an awful bad j
thing and m^kes them look so wild and !
O, I ea: remember how my pa used
to look when he drank whisky, and I!
can remember bow scared mother was j
i? i- i? - i
wnen iiy came iioae arunK.
I used to think we were as good as j
other people, for we had. a nice house j
and had enough to eat, and we all seemed :
to get along first-rate, except when pa j
would go to the tavern and get drunk, j
and then "when he came home we would
have an awful time. He would strike
mother with anything he could get hold
of, and once when i told him he was a
bad man to act that way, he took me by
one foot and slammed "me clean across
I was hurt and scared too, and mother
she screamed awful, and then she picked
me up and ran out of the house.
It was a cold night?yes, awful cold;
I can mind that very well, for when
mother took me to Mr. "Weston's house
they said I was nearly frozen. My leg
hurt me awfol bad too, and I cried and
TvT Mr. Weston brought the doctor,
he said my leg was broken, and he set it,
and it hurt pretty bad too, but I tried
not to cry, for I knew it made mother
feel kind of distressed.
But I couldn't stop the cry altogether.
It would break out sometimes. I tell
you it is pretty bad to have a broken
leg. It is bad for a little boy, but I
reckon it wouldn't be so bad for a big
boy or a man.
I hated my pa after that. What did
he break my leg for? I asked myself
that question a good many times.
Wasn't I his own boy? And hadn't he
been good to me before? Then why
should he rise right up and slam me
across the room and break my leg just

act so ugly and strike mother?
I talked to mother about it when I
was lying.with my broken leg, arid it
hurting pretty bad too, and she said it
was whisky that did it.
But I tola her that if whisky and pa
hadn't got together it wouldn't have
been done. Whisky in a bottle wouldn't
have done it, but v hisky in pa is what
caused the trouble.
I told mother I wondered why people
drank whisky when it made them so bad,
and caused them to slam boys around
and break their legs. She said they
couldn't help it. When they commenced
they were compelled to go ahead. They

If whisky is as bad as that, oughtn't
people to be very careful? I think they
ought to shut _ their mouths and strike
right and left -when they coine near to it.
I never asked mother to explain all
about this, for she died soon after, and
I didn't have an opportunity to talk to
her, but I suppose that he meant that
whiskey would chase a man and get into
his mouth and down his throat whether
he wanted it or not.
If that's the case, whisky is a terrible
Mr. Weston Is a preacher, and he says
it bites like a serpent, and stings like an
adder, and he says that serpents and
adders arc snakes.
I have been thinking about it a good
deal, and I can't just understand howwhisky
can get into the shape of snakes,
but that must be the way of it, for how
could whisky chase a man and get down
his throat, unless it did first get into the
shape of a snake, and then ran along the
ground and climb up his legs and plump
down his throat?
And I think this must be the way of
it, because I heard Sammy "Weston tell
about a drunkard that had snakes in his

climb clear up to the man s moutii and
so they got into his boots.
If I'had to have snakes at all, I'd an
awful sight rather they would get into
my boots than to get \nLo my mouth and
down my throat.
And, speaking of boots, I've got my
first pair on now.
"My pa r ever had money to buy me
boots,'but he had money to buy stakes.
Now, which is the worst? Snakes, of
I said my mother as dead. Yes, she
didn't live ioner after pa broke my leg
and drove us out of the bouse.
Mr. Weston says she died of a broken
I reckon when people die of broken
hearts they cry r. good deal. That's the
way it "was -with mother, anyhow.
I asked Mr. Yfeston if he didn't think
that when my poor mother died of a
broken heart, somebody oughtn't to go
over and make my pa die of a broken
head. Ee began it, you know.
Mr. Weston got up and went to look
for good book. I wonder if he thought
it was wicked for me to say that.
I continued. I said I guessed it would
be about right, for he had given mother
a broken heart and me a broken leg, and
it would only be doing him justice to
give him a broken head.
Mr. Weston didn't say anything, but
continued to look for the book.
Bat I am glad my mother is dead. She
sighed so much, and she cried nearly all
the time, and ilr. Weston says he believes
that she has gone where there is
no sighing nor crying, and where God
wipes all tears away.

analysis of the debt question, with the view
of showing that the people of the Old Dominion

A proposition was made to the bond holders
to pay them ?703,552 interest every year
on a capital of $23,277,700. The representatives
of the bond holders demand interest
to the amount of $934,582 annually on a
principal of $32,3S4,455. As an acceptance
of the latter proposition would necessitate
an increase of taxation, cruel to j
the impoverished agricultural sections of j
the State, or further cripple the public-!
schools, in which, as it is, only 51 per cent. !
of the children of school age are enrolled, i
the neonle csn never a free tr? it Th< v f
cannot be made to believe thai a sacririt e
which to many of their dearest interes's
would mean ruin can reasonably be expected
ol 'hem, even to pay the public indebtedness
that hangs around their necks
like a mill fone. It is a situation that entitles
thern to the sympathies of the country,
and if they are forced into repudiation ai
last, the event, though to be deplored, will
not be -without its many mitigating circumstances.
Com2Ienting cn the election oi Chandler
to the United States Senate, the
Boston Herald says:
"But who snail say that 'Bill' Chandler
is not a fair representative of the
party which selects a Keifer for Spcakc-r.
accepts IMahone and Eiddleberger as its
Southern allies, and puts forward as its
national standard-bearer a man so |
smirched that in almost any civilized !
country in the "world he could not remain <
in public life?" i
Few persons, even among those who
have figured prominently in political life,
are better known, or more closely identified
with the history of the National Capital, 1
than is W. W. Corcoran, Washington's;
aged millionaire and philanthropist, and
the announcement of the fact thit he had
suffered a partial .stroke of paralysis ere
ated u very general sensation throughout \
the city. If evidence were lacking us to j
the general feeling ot anxiety- wmcn pre-,
vails, it would be at once supplied by a re- :
view of the enormous pile of cards which
were deposited upon the card table in the !
hail of Mr. Corcoran*s residence upon the i
day following the announcement of his'
illness. Nearly every person of note in '
the city hud a card there. Among others :
were those of Secretaries Bayard. "Whit-:
ney and Fairchild: the French, German j
and Brazilian Ministers, Baron and Buron- |
ess Rosen. Admiral Porter. Admiral .John
H. Russell. Medical Director F. L. Harvey
and the officers of the Washington Monument
Association, of which Mr. Corcoran
, is the president. "While there has been a
marked improvement in Mr. Corcoran's
condition since last Tuesday. ::ndhe is dow
able to sit up a portion of the time, still
the physicians represent that his life is in
the balance. Against the unfavorable con-'
dition of his extreme old age, the rareness
of recovery in such cases, and the possibility
that an additional stroke of paralysis
may come at any time, there are the favorable
circumstances that the patient is endowed
with a remarkable strong constitution,
and his general health is good.
Under 'he present administration of the
postal service the position of postofiice inspector
is not as much of a sinecure as in
the past. The last session of Congress provided
that all fourth-class postollices should
'io i'r.cTwt<vl ns TPOTilarlv as the more im
portant ones. The examination of fourth
class offices that Lave thus far been made,
make a very gratifying exhioit of the condition
of the service. Out of more than
1,000 inspectors reports, less than 100 of
of them contain any suggestions of inefficiency
or carelessness in the management
of the offices. *
31 r. Jay Gould accompanied by hi.s wife
and "iree children arrived in 'Washington
on Wecnesday last, the party coming up
the Potomac on 3Ir. Gould's magnificent
steam yacht Atlanta. During his stay
in the city Mr. Gould fought very shy of
reporters, in fact despite their greatest
effort, not a single reporter succeeded in
obtaining an interview with him. There
were various rumors current as to the object
of his visit, and the rooms of the InterState
Commerce Commission were closely
watched by the newspaper' men. He
failed, however, to realise the expectations
of the watchers as he failed to make his
appearance, and after spending the day in
driving about the city he left for Fortress

Tuttle's Little Tattle.
The Philadelphia Times thinks that
it was not necessary for General Sherman
to write a public letter condemning
the false attitude in which one arrant
rte-maorvrne named Tuttle. of Iowa, has
??o-o? ? .
apparently placed the Grand Army of
that State toward the President. The
Grand Army encampment will be held at
St. Louis next fall, and a committee of
citizens of that city, embracing men oi
both parties, came to Washington specially
to urge the President to visit St.
Louis at the time the encampment is to
be held, and the President gave a conditio^;::
^ romise to do so. The great mass
oi ;Le veteran soldiers would have been
glad to welcome the President as a guest
on such an occasion, but one bktant
j demagogue, clothed with a little briel
! authority, has interviewed himself fo:
j the newspapers in opposition to receiv!
ing the President, until General Sherj
man felt - called upon to vindicate the
I soldiers of the Union against the dis
j grace into winch a babbling fool would
| plunge them. The attempt to degrade
j the soldiers of the country by an open
| exhibition of disrespect for the Presided
comes from one Tuttle, of Iowa, who
i happens to have climbed his way to the
^-Jhead of the Grand Army of that State.
He was a soldier ana = -rioicnt l?emocra;
during the war, and was several times 2
Democratic candidate for local or State
1 offices. He was the Democratic candidate
for Governor after the war, when
the Kepubiicans proved to their own
satisfaction that he was more of a cotton
speculator than soldier. He continued
: to seek political honors as a Democrat
until 1876, when he had succeeded in an
election to the Legislature: but many
years of political disappointments as a
j Democrat had then wearied of poj
litical husks and he suddenly turned up
i as a Republican and quite as radical as
j he had been in support of Democracy.
The Piedmont Exposition.
This exposition which will onen iu Atlanta
on the 10th of October premises to
surpass in magnitude and grandeur the
cotton exhibit held there some years ago.
The Piedmont section of the South wilfbe
iUilJ Icpiey iilCU auu Lia\i AJ.vpvoitivyxi I.iji
hold for two weeks. The main features
of the occasion may be brieay stated as
follows: President "Cleveland and some
members of bis cabinet will certainly be
there. This fact is advertised with his permission.
The premium list covers ?20,000.
There is also over *10,000 in racing purses,
and 200 of the finest raccs in the country
will be there. There is $3,500 in military
prizes. There will be an encampment and
a srand review by the President. The
pyrotechnic display is guaranteed to be the
finest ever seen in America except at the
opening of the Brooklyn bridge, and will
cost ?0,000/or three nights. One of the
features will be Niagara Falls in fire works,
a living wall of light, GO feet high and 150
feet long. Atlanta spends ?150,000 on
grounds and buildings. The buildings
excel in beauty and size those of the cotton
exposition. Every day will be full of sport
and amusement for the crowd. The railroads
will give reduced rates, certainly
round trip tickets, at perhaps a cent a
mile. Arrangements for reaching the
grounds are perfect. Both the railroads
and street cars run into the grounds. The
Exposition will undoubtedly be the biggest
show ever held in the South and will make
an exhibit of the riches of the Piedmont
region never before eaualled.
liane Bail Profit*.
The Boston Herald has been figuring on
the profits of base ball. The Herald takes
Boston as a good example by which to
illustrate the profitableness of this new
business: There will be about 63 games of
base ball played in the League Association
during the season, of which about 20 have
already bjeo played. The attendance si
them has averaged fully 4,000 people. This,
at 50 cents a ticket, yields considerably
more than ?2,000 a game, for there are reserved
seats, lo the amount of 1,400 in
number, at 25 and 50 cents each, the most
of which arc generally sold, and there are
perquisites of the grounds which bring in
money. It is a low estimate to set down
the receipts of the season at ?125,000. Out
of this are to l?e taken, perhaps, ?35,000
for salaries of players, .$2,500 for ground
expenses and a considerable sum for the
cost of transporting the players from one
city to another. It will be liberal to call
this altogether $50,000. The profits, therefore,
tint the season of five months will
represent will be $75,'MX).

Terry's Lucky Widow.
There is a long and curious story be- ;
hind the announcement made, with a !
good deal of sensational flourish, that a 1
fortune of $7,000,000 has been left to I
Mrs. Kate Louise Terry by her late hus- J
band, Ivan Petro Terr}-, who died in J
Paris, where the lucky widow is still i
living. The $7,000,000 will probably \
be cut down a good deal, but if the for- ;
time reaches half that sum Mrs. Terry |
is an extraordinarily fortunate woman. I
Of the lad7 the Hartford Times says:
Her life up to the present time, if ac- i
curately depicted in a novel, would :
make interesting reading. Kate Louise |
Norman (her maiden name) came '
hither from England in childhood with ;
her father, who settled in Brooklyn, j
and eventually became a judge there, j
She is now about 32 years of age, hand- ;
some, of good figure, and a style that !
has a good deal of dash in it it was j
to her good looks and her style that she j
owed her court-room marriage to Ivan ;
P. Terry. Before that she had been the i
wife of the notorious bank burglar, ;
Charley Bullard, who is now said to be !
serving a long term of imprisonment in i
Belgium. The marriage to Bullard took I
place in England, where she was visit- j
ing, when she was about 16 years old. j
Bullard then went by the name of j
Charles Wells. He was a smart fellow, i
with a fine address and plenty of spend- j

knew nothing about his real character.
He took her to Paris, where he opened
a sort of American bar-room on a
showy scale, and installed his pretty
young wife as cashier. She naturally
attracted a good deal of notice, and the
venture prospered for a while. Bullard
gave it up, however, and brought his
wife to Xew York. It was then she
found out who and what he was.
Another wife soon turned up, and the I
couple separated, never to meet again.
The second wife took her two children
and went off on her own account How
she lived till sbe met Terry does not
appear to be known. He was the son
of a millionaire sugar-planter m Cuba,
and had made some money himself.
They were married without any loss of

were not entirely harmonious. A number
of little unpleasantnesses occurred,
and led up finally to a police-court sensation.
Mrs. Terry was of a decidedly
jealous turn, and once on going through
her husband's pockets, after the manner
of wideawake wiv,.-s, she found a pushing
letter from a young woman explaining
why a certain appointment was not
kept. It is needless to say that the letter
did not imj>rove Mrs. Terry's state
of mind. After thinking a while she
set a trap for the young woman, and
caught her in it. Then she called on
her at her home to give her a talking
I to, and got turned out for her pains.
That warmed her up still more, and her
next step was to make a charge against
the young woman of appropriating certain
money that she said she missed.
Then came the police-court sensation,
in which the two women played prominent
parts, and which the reporters
j n:iu a niie uiue nuuug up ansi a.
I great deal of wrangling the charge was
I dismissed, and the second woman, a
[ Miss Atwood, soon after retaliated by I
1 suing Mrs. Terry for slander. She
j claimed 825,000 damages, and a jury !
: awarded her $300, but as Mrs. Terry ;
I had no property in her name to levy on !
the judgment is still unpaid. Miss At- j
j wood will try pretty hard to collect it!

"Yes," he replied briskly, "I have !

"Have you any plans?"
"Well, none very defined. I intend
going out into society, as I have brought
over a quantity of letters of introduction."
"Will you hunt?"
"Yes, rather! I am told that you have
several good hunts here, among others
at llockaway and elsewhere. But what
I want more than anything is to get
some good shooting. There is some
very good duck shooting around New

Lord Grey de Wilton then expressed
anxiety to know the winner of the Manchester

The Vacant Juailceship.
A Washington dispatch to the Cincinnati
Enquirer says: Here is some inside in- <
formation in regard to the vacancy on the
United States Supreme Bench. It come:;:
from a thoroughly reliable source. There
are only two points settled upon by the !
President with regard to the appointment
he intends to make to 511 the existing vacancy.
He has decided that the position
must go to a representative Southern man,
and, secondly, that he must not be more
than 55 years of age. It is the desre of
Mr. Cleveland that the man whom he appoints
shall be a vigorous man, acd one ;
who will be good for at least fifteen or
twenty years' service upon the Supreme
Bench. Beyond this the President has not
given the question or the qualifications of
any of those heretofore named in connection
with the appointment the least cor- ]cration.
He wants the man whom he sLa""l
select to be a Democrat who will last for
fifteen years or more after he has retired
from the Presidential office.

be put on the table that they may stuff
their bj-pocritical hide. They, as a rule,

therefore can be found with a little book .

under Mr. Lamar has been well done, and
he has at the same time had an influence
