A Travilcr's Story.
"Is this seal engaged, sir ? '
I glauced up from the paper I was rcad
iug, and met the smiling regard of a genial
looking gentlemto iu the prime of life.
'It is not.'tir," : ' -
Willi your permission, then," as Le
he seated himself btside me.
The train had already started, and pre
sently thq conductor made Lid appear-
ut "Ueclit)g the tickels. . Reaching
us, he detached tbe appropriate o.Wpana
from our "tickets, handing- back the re
mainder with the usual checks. '" " '

the manifold bcatttfes of such a position.

"Once 7 only once.''
"How ia that? '
"You wish to profit by my experience ?
Well, I don't know that I mind telling
v. iu the storv. It may serve to amuse
you, if notliiug more. .It occurred a
number of years ago.-aud no consequence.
I had taken the early express trait), and
being somewhat tired and altogether
sleepy, had stretched myself upon a seat
for as comfortable a nap as circumstances
would admit ' I slept soundly, for I
could iu those . days sleep well almost
anywhere, and did not awakou until the
conductor came for my ticket. The cs-
seotial pice of paste board could not be
found. I was positive I had purchased
& ticket; indeed I remember distinctly
having shown it to the baggage clwk at
the time of checking my trunk. .
The conductor grew impatient passed
to the other end of the car, and returned
to me. I had ma Jo the discovery that
my pocket book had been picked, and iu
protif of my story showed him' my bag
It was useless. If you have traveled
much, you are aware that a virlnous con
ductor takes no man's word. In fact, all
men have designs upon thti company's
dividend, except himself. It was per
fectly natural, therefore, that the faithful
steward iu question should say: ' '
"The check is all rijrbt : but how do I
know that it belongs to you ; I will take
the money for your fare or stop the traiu
aud put you off, if you choose."
"What could I do ? Protestations were
nothing, aud my fellow-passengers, with
the usual tendency of humanity to tram
ple on a fallen man, showed clearly by
their looks and expressions they thought
me a sneaking rogue, who would .steal a
passage if he couId! - They paid money,
why should not I pay mine? Few men
would ever see heaven if judgment was
rendered by a jury except themselves.
My search for the lost ticket had
brought to light about a dollar and eigh
ty cents. I told the coudnctor this was
every cent I had about 'me.' lie said it
was about fifty cents short of' the usual
fare to Lauerdale city, but that be would
pass me through for it rather than etop the
train. From Liuerdale, a city of much
importance, I could write to my partner
for money..! It would ceitaiuly be as
well as to tramp ten or twelve mile back
to the city I had left, and where I should
be no better off, being a stranger there
also.' : '; V f , - - - !

It was not a bad joke, but I suppressed

, My first duty next morning, was to
seek some kuiglit of the razor.. I had
noticed a pleasant shop at no great dis
tance from the. hotel in my walk the pre
vious "day. Thinking I should do no
better by looking further, I repaired to
that. A boy was in attendance, who
stated that his father, the proprietor of
the shop, had gone to a neighboiing city
aud would not return till noon. , Without
any hesitation I asked the loan of a ra
zor, and proceeded to operate on myself.
While thus occupied, the customers be-

great diisatisfaction on learning how
matters stood. Now alibougn 1 am a
proud man, I am not, thauk God, cursed
with that; Fpecies . of vanity which pre
vents a m ui's doing certain kinds of hon
est labor simply because they are., not

my breakfast, . 1 took advantage of it.
Told the first mau who -entered after ,1
had completed shaving myself I would
shave him. 1 did so. Iu fact, I did
quite a good business for a couple of
hours, and if any of the unfortunate indi
viduals who came uuder my hand had
any doubt of my filtiejsfor the business,
they certainly expressed none. At- tha
expiration of this litac I began to think
I had done sufficient, and fecliug rather
hungry, baviug uo breakfast, I divided
the proceeds with the bny, and prepared to
return to my hotel. Bit I was not done
yet. Aa I was brushiug my hat a young

Resolved that ho should be . the. last. . I
went to work on him. , When he came
to pav me, I wa; to say the least, some
what surptised to see him deliberately
produce my own pocket book the one
I'had lost. Standing on no ceremony, I
snatched it from his hand, and demanded
its possession. ,.
"Without stopping to reply, other than
by a volley of imprecations, as he reach
ed the door, he tumbled rather ' than ran
down the stairs into the street. ' Waiting
for neither hat nor coat,' I followed the
pocket book in my baud. We measured
off considerable ground in a short' tpacc
of time. On, on. It was an"' exciting
chase. Men, boys and dog's joined the
pursuit, the cries of "stop thief growing i
louder aud increasing. What an uproar
there was. Suddenly came a flash of
light, sharp and vivid for an instant, then
utter darkness. A policeman, mistaking
me for the thief, had gently tapped me
on the head, as their custom is, and with j
tbe usual result the thief escaped, . and I
the victim, was apprehended.. My ap
pearance told heavily against me; .but
my story beiug corroborated by the boy
at the barber shop. I was released.
. Upon exaniuing the wallet I fouud my
own. money intact, aud about one nua
dred aud thirty dollars besides. . .That is
all the story." .-
"Not a bad speculation, after all,'' said
I, as he concluded. ' ' " '" ' " ' '
"Well, perhaps so. No,' it was not;
but still my advice holds good. . Never
place a railway ticket in your wallet." '

assa'ik was gallantly aud brilliantly re
pulsed after one of the severest struggles,
for its duration, of the war. General
Uartrauft at the time was in command of
the Third Divi siou of the Ninth Corps,
which -was made up of Pennsylvania
regiments, raised ' for one year and just
sent into the field ' A t the ' head of this
fresh force, Uartrauft, on the 25th of
March, made an attack npon the Rebel
lines and drove the enemy headlong from
Fort Steariroan, a position which they
had fancied to be eecnrely in their grasp.
Fnr this brilliant achievement Uartrauft
was breveted major general of volunteers
and became popularly known as "The
Hero of Fort Steadmnn " Subsequent
ly his skirmishers were the first Union
soldiers to enter Petersburg, and one of j
his brigades was also the first body ot j
loyal troops to enter the city. His com-
mand saw no more fighting during the
war, but his military career was not yet
ended. " During the trial of the assassins
of President Lincoln he wa specially de
tailed to take charge of the arrangements
for guarding the military commission, and
to execute its mandate. !
