whipped O'ilrlcn severely three or four
times 'l iiesilay with a leather strap, because
ho would not work, O'llricn protesting all
the time that he wits sick and could not
work. Half an hour alter the first whip
ping Comer went to where O'Brien was sit
ting In the sun nnd felt his pulse, lie then
said: "Them Is nothing tho matter with
you," and kuocked him down and kicked
him In tha si Jo several times. J. J.
Qulnn, a gu.ird, also kicked O'ilrlcn sev
eral times, O'Hilen got on his knees and
begged for mercy, saying ho would work II
he could, but was loo sick. "If you have
no pity for me," he pleaded, "have pity oil
my poor wife and children." Comer
cursed him and said, "Ci d d- n you, I'll
kill you, Instead of thinking about hell."
About this time Quiiii! knocked the
negro (Smith) down, 11ml tiled hi get some

knocked down tho last time. Twenty-live
or tliiily convicts were examined, and

who are working the convicts, was present,
ami told eath of the convicts to tell the

According to the testimony, the convicts
are treated very brutally, and are not al
lowed to sit down from four a. 111. to seven

The little villRgo of Ocennporl, about
two miles lo the north nf Long Branch,
is the no-no of an extraordinary realiza
tion of Tennyson's poem of Enoch Ar-
den. Tho siirroiiuilings aro In thorough
harmony w ill) the story. Tho village is
e posed of n few scattered houses, lit-
llu claphoardeit utructures, painted a
sober brown, and siiiTotitiilrd for the
most part by white p'tling. It lies upon
thu sands nnd the surf dashes upon the
shingles at its doors. Although within
a fow minutes' ride of gay and worldly
Long Branch, tho villagers retain a
simplicity of niannor that is charming.
tins may 00 accounted for by the fact
that the only visitors from the outside
world lliat they soe are those who go
thero from this place to cat freshly-
caught hsu and clams. Even the
changeful lifo-history, revealed ouly
upon a deathbed, has agitated its prim
itive atmosphere hut little, and to raanv
of tho simple folk tho loiigue of gossip
has not yet conveyed th - story. Tho
history had to bo gathered by hits. The
work was not an easv one, sineo those
who know it best manifested a disposi
tion to lalk the least. But hero is the
SOrr-KYKD MATILDA Sl)flHKS.
A pretty girl lived near Jlunasiitian
thirty years ago. Her name was Ma
tilda Dulcimer Souires. Thin- who
knew her then say that her eves were
wonderlully soft aud blue, her figure
was trim and graceful and her brown
hair long and lustrous. Hesidoj these
gilts of beauty, she had tho qualities
roijtiisito for a good housewife. She
was the daughter of a lisliernian, a
thrifty, staid and practical old dad.
Two young men paid her court Hiram
Olivo, whose father had recently died
and left him a farm near the quaint old
village of Hrnnchburg, and Samuel Bar
ton, who, like Matilda' father, was a
toiler of the sea. llaid luck had come
to Barton and he had littl to oiler his
lore beyond his heart aud hand. Old
man Squires, with his eve always to
the maiu chnnce, was an advoeato of
Iho suit ofdlivejand curtly hinted to
I arton that he need not hope to become
the husband of tho pretty Matilda. The
iretty Matilda nnd Barton, howover,
lad tiotions of their own on that sub
ject. Barton had already declared his
love nnd Matilda had told" him that she
w as "lond" of him."
Her father's opposition but increased
the intensity ot her attachment. Thev
met by stealth and in tlie oml were mar
ried in secret. Tho truth could not be
hidden always, and when, in tho conrso
of t me, old Squires discovered it he
was furious. Ilo was hardly the man
to forgive and bless. As his child had
chosen, ho said, be it uuto her. Ho sent
her away from his house and declared
that a she had disobeyed him she had
despised him and must no more think
of h.m as father.
RAML'KL BARTON'S TLL-I.CCK.
The ill-luck that attended Snmuul
Barton as a lover followed him as a
husband. Nothing seemed to nrosnor
ith him. Three children came. Thev.
liko their mother, wcro bright and
pretty. But thev wore not e-nld or
silver. It was natural that .Matilda.
11 tpler these eircuiiisiaiiccs, should some
times invert to tho old days and think
with regret of what inijjht have been.
iram Olive was still iu fortune's favor.
But he never thought of marriage nnv
more, and there was no girl at Miiii-
as quail who could truthliilly say that
his attentions to her meant any more
than polite form. After Matilda
Squires' marriage ho lost much of the
gay buoyancy that had characterized
li m before. His relations with Matilda
and Samuel Barton, hfiwovor, still re
mained kindly. It is related of him,
that on one o.x-asion when Matilda'
eldest child was taken suddenly vio
lently ill he rodo six miles through a
snow-storm to bring a phvsiciati. All
this, however, did not alter tho fact
that M itilda was discontented She
vent-1! her feelim upon h.T husband,
reproached him for having overpcr
siU'lod her into es. ousing his fortune
and chuled him with his poverty. Her

He askod tlint when he was dead his
children might he brought to look upon
his lace, and said that if they had for
gotten him no one should tell them who
ho was, but If they shoul 1 recall his
face no one should deny the truth. He
died. Ho was buried on Thursday ul
last week. Ills children wero brought
to look upon his lifeless face, as he had
akeiL They were grown up, and the
eldest, also named Samuel, divined the
truth in an instant. Indeed, he bore so
marvelous a resemblance to his father
that even a stranger could see that a
close relationship must have existed
between thoin. L'ttle by little the his
tory has come out, and when the
widow Josephson, who had been en
joined to conditional secrocy by Matil
da, saw that the story would surely be
come known, sho began to toll it round
in whisper to startled neighbor.
Matilda told Ilir im Olivo all Ihe truth,
and, it is said' '.liar, to satisfy their con
sciences, they will be married. Olive
was found last night at Irs home. He
was disinclined to taU, but, by co
erces, lopped "off exaggerations thai
had become engrafted on the story and
continued the history here given.

"Speakln' of the perductive soil,"
said the man from Dakota, "the hall
has never been told. The newspapers
have gono jest as fur as they dared, an'
though thoy havo shot away under tlie
mark, the editors have bin denouneed
as threc-piv liars by the hull Fast For
duetive soil? Why, pardner, thatdon'l
express it! I remember last fall was
walkin' across my claim an' found a
big log chain about twelvo feet long. I
dragged it into my shack, an' happened
to notice a peculiarity about the hook,
the point o' which was in the form ol
a snake's head. All to once I remem
bered bavin' lost a steel watch chain
about two months afore, an', pardner,
I hope 1 may never soe that claim agin
if that soil hadn't tuk hold 0' that
chain an' it growed to the size de
scribed. Whv, sir, it's wonderful:"
He gayed around at thu faces of the
fleruM staff in search of looks of doubt,
1 ut all bi.-insr serene, he continued:
"One cvenin'a jest afore dark, mv
wife looked oiitcn the window ans
said: 'John. I believe that calf s stuck
dowu thar in that swampy spot.' I
told her I guess not, an' wo didn't givu
tho critter another thought. When I
irot up next mornin' an' went out to do
tho chores I'm a bald headed liar from
the Jim River if thar wan't a full

wa the nii'lit afore, stuck fast in the
