THE NATIONAL TRIBUNE.
He Would Brag.
A pnrty of young mou traveling in Europe, had among
thorn citizen of our great republic who was 'bo thor
oughly patriotic that ho could soo no oxoollonco in any
thing yi tho 01(1 NVorl 1 ua compared with his Own couti
tiy. Mountains, waterfalls, churches, monuments, scenery
and all other ob.juotn of interest were inferior to what the
United States could show. His companions became some
what tired of his overweening boastfulncf-s and deter
mined to "take him down a peg.' The party spent a
winter in Home ; and one evening, having all things pro
paved, they induced their Yankee friend to join a drink
ing bout, and so managed that they kept sober while he
got gloriously drunk. Thereupon they took him into tho
catacombs, laid him carefully down, with a candle within
reach, and retired a short distance out of sight to wait
After a while their friend roused up, having slept oil'
his iirst drunken stupor, and, in a state of some astonish
ment, began endeavoring to locate himself, at tho same
tinie muttering ; " WelC -hie -tliis's little strange. Won
der hie where I am, anyway '? "
lie got out his match, lighted his candle, and began to
tudy his surroundings. On each side Were shelves piled
with grinning skulls, and niches iillecl with skeletons,
while all about, were piled legs, arms, ribs, and vertebrae
a ghastly array, and altogether now to hiiri. Ho nodded
to tho skulls on one side with a drunken ' How de do
liicY' and on tho other with "How d'ye feel hie any
way?'' took a look at his watch, and onco more at his
surroundings, got on his feet, took oil' his hat, and hold
ing it above his head, remarked, loud enough for his
friends to hear : " S all right ; 's hie all right. Morn

Belvibere, Illinois, October 24, 1875.
I take great pleasure in recommending Captain Georok E
Lkmon, now of Washington, D. C, to all persons who may have
claims to settle or other business to prosecute before the "Depart
ments at AVashlngton. I know him to be thorobghly qualified,
well acquainted with the laws, and with Department rules in all
matters growing out of tho lato war, especially in the Paymaster's'
and Quartermaster's offices. I hae had occasion to employ him for
friends of mine, also, in the soliciting of patents, and liave found:
him verv active, well-informed, and successful. As a gallant officer
during the war, and an honorable and successful practlonor, I reo
ommend aim strongly to all who may need his sonices.
