A DAY WITH VIRGINIA'S GOV?
ERNOR.
(Richmond Dispatch.)
Tho ti ai h that Lava made Governor
Tyler so popular among Virginians
causes him to appear to the best ad
v-i r.ge in his homo, and a friend who
calls for the first lime becomes a friend
forever whin he has been the recipisnt
of the hearty welcome be is aure t > re?
ceive. Mrs. Tyler and her daughters
naiko ideal Virginia hostesses, and tc
them will bo due tho credit of giving
to the Mansion the glow of Virginia
hospitality for which it hai become fa
mous.
So it*will be seen that it ia little
wonder that the Governor likes to do
much of his work at homo. Ho lovea
to be with hts family, for he is a '"fami?
ly man" in the beat sense of the word.
The Governor spends the timo from
tbat at which ho arises?4:30 or 5
o'cl ck?until breakfast at 7:30 or 8
o'clock, reading his mail, which is very
heavy. A ter tbe morning meal he
strolls ou I to a barber-shop?any one,
he is not particular?and whsn the
tonsorial operator has left his face ru.
dy and thining, with the exception of
tho black mut-tache and goatee, so fa
_iliar to al^Virginianp, he goes to bia
office and gt ts down to work.' This
lusts till lunch at 2 o'clock?if he can
get away at that time, oftener at 3. He
generally returns to the office at 4
o'clock, and some days it ia nearly dark
when ho gets back to the Mansion.
Dinner is at 7, and lasta an hour or
more. Afterwirda, there ere always a
number of cal'ers, m..ny of them com?
ing in in a social way, and many want?
ing the opportunity to whisper a
word in thc gubernatorial ear in ihe
intel est of a friend who wanta a chance
to serve Virginia.
All in all, Governor Tyler'a life ia a
busy one, about as different from that
which he and his family have been ac
customed to on the farm as ?an well
be imagined. Toes of thousands of
Virginians there aro who will hope it
may be ps happy, and teng of thousands
cf the sturdy yeomanry of tho ola"
State will say it cannot be more so than
the life led at beautiful "Belle Hamp?
ton."
JOHN S. WISE'S ATTACK ON VIR?
GINIA,
During thejeourse of bis argument in
the contested election case of Wise va.
Young from the Second District of
Virginia, John S. Wise used tho fol?
lowing disreputable language; "Vir?
ginia contains tbs bones of my an?
cestors; for many years she has been
?ignged in tbo past in producing
Statesmen and Presidents,but she isnow
engaged in the low busineas of produc?
ing perjurers, thieves and scoundrels.'
As Jons S. Wise was an advocate ol
lepudiating Virginia's debts, and p
henchman of Mahone aud his tssu<
ballots, and behoved in receiving "nig?
gers" in hid "back kitchen" while de
mandmg their votes, aa seo called Re?
publican, it might not seem out o:
plaoe to ask if he judges the people o:
his native State by bimseltr Foi tun
ately ho has moved beyond tho bor
dcrs of the grand old Commonwamltl
that unfortunately gave him birth (un
la-s he is in.-n.iii-) an i Virginia is ik
longer responsible for bia actions oi
his words, and he aptly describes him
pelf as one of a class,whom he described
as "apostates for the price of the!
apostasy."

DOWN THE PRIMROSK PATH.
Shyly she walked down tbe path be?
tween the pink and white primroses.
He stood at tho gate waiting. \\ hen
she came near him r-he plucked a large
bunch of the flower a, then pau- ed and
looked at him from under her sunbon?
net. He held out a large, red appia.
She loved apples, and be knew it, band?
ing him the flowers, and with -Hidden
impulse she kissed him and ran to tbe
house.
That was years and yesrs ago, but
they both remembered it. He had
always brought her the best < f every?
thing he bad. When they were grown
it seemed a matter of cou se that he
should take her everything. He came
to her with hij griefs, with his joys,
ambitions, and hopes.
This evening* the went down the
path to meet him, her white dre.?s
touching tbe primroses aa she walked.
He smiled joyously; a new light shone
in his eyes, and hers respoaded.
"I must tell you Mary,*' he said, tak?
ing her hand. "I cannot keep my
love to myself any longer,"
Her heart throbbed. She had kno ra
t would coma some day, but when shs
tried to tell him how she loved him h< r
bps were dumb and only har (yes
spoke.
"I knew yoe. would bt glad, Mary,
glad for my sake, and she's such a
lovely girl. I only met ber last month,
when I wast to see my old college
chum, Bentley, but she has consented
to marry me soon. You will love her,
I know you will. I've told her what s
dear friend she will have in yon."
"O, yes, I'm sure she's?she's lovely."
Mary responded with an effort, .ad
with a little shiver,
"How thought ess I ami" he ex?
claimed. "It has grewn so ?billy that
you are cold in that thin dre .a. How
pretty you look ia white, Mary ! Bui
you must go in, sod I must be off.
Good-by," and hy held out bis hand.
''1 knew you would be glad to hear of
my happiness" %
He was gone. Slowly she walked
back amid the flowers, ard no one ever
knew why she took, oft the whito dress
and laid it away for year-;.
Philip Newton marrifd *ithin s
month, but he left, the old home. May?
field was too small and quitt s place*
for h s wife.
Six times the primroses had blunted
since be went away.
"Yes, his wife is dead, and they say
he is coming here again to live,"
Mary tumedaway from tho speaker,
and looked out of the window. The
primroses would soon be in bloom.
People expected him back, yet it was
two years before he came, briojjing his
five-year-old daughter. They said he
was changed. It had disappointed
Mayfield people when he mariied away
from them. They looked at him rath?
er askance now.
One evening Mary ssw him cora;ng
down the street. Hs stopped at the
?gite. She went down the path ta
meet him. She had put on a whits
dress once more, and it kissed tho
flowers as abo walked. He s.emed
timid, but she held out her hand sith
a cordial smile.
?It ia just eight years since we stood
here together, Mary,"
??Yes, eight years;' and shs smi'ed.
"Alary," be began, nervously, "it was
all a mistake," Hs took off bia hat
and wiped his brow. "But I didn't
know it until too lats. It wss you I
loved. Can you love me now V
She looked st him, noting the gray
in his hair, and careworn expression of
his laos. Shs wat sorry but she
answered, softly and sadly: "No.
Philip, it ia too lat). I loved you once,
but?but thst wss long ago. I shall
never marr*,
Mechsnically he leaned against the
fence to stesdy himself. The pain hs
felt showed in hit face. She turned to
go.
'?Mary, wait -ons word."
She panted. Just then his littlo
daughtsr danced np io him sud slip?
ped hst hand in his. Hs aio-jped sud
kissed bsr. -Shyly ths child glanced
at Mary; then stroking hsr white dress
carelessly, she asked:
".Aren't you goiog to kiss me, too?"
Mary looked at the little girl's face,
so like the face of the Phi bp she had
loved years ago. As she leaned to
give the child s kiss, two s >f. little
arms crept about her neck, and the
baby lace was railed to hers. Like a
Hash the past carno back to ber, and
with a cry she caught the child to her
heart and darted toward ths house.
Half way up she turo ed.
"Philip, you?you msy c ima again,''
she said.
A. glad light broke over his face as
ha watched her clamping his child to
her heart, while she sped along ths
piimrose path._
