"Penn," In tho Phlladolplila Bulletin.
There seems to be something like
a tendency to set up a new estlmato of
Aaron Hurr. Edgar Fnwcett In his
latest novel of old New York draws a
half-romantic picture of him In his old
age. Not many weeks ago Mrs. Bur
goln, Mrs. Bates and other New York
women In a society for Political Study
took him up for a theme nnd enmo to
the conclusion that he was a man too
big for his time, a victim of circum
stances, etc. It Is curious that women
bhould concern themselves at this late
da In vindicating or brightening up
the character of a man whom their
grandmothers were taught to regard
as the most sensual libertine In the
United States. Forty years ago James
Parton attempted, but with limited re
sults, to incite sympathy for Burr;
but Parton liked to write biography
with a mild sense of tho literary sen
sationalist In striking nt a rooted opin
ion. On the part of men who may
now think it their duty to give us a
revised estimate of Burr it is really
rot unfair to question a want of the
robust sense of distinction between
right and wrong In both private nnd
public morals. On the part of wo
men who now find him an object of
sympathy, if not of admiration. It
ould seem that the magic with which
he charmed their sex has survived the
grave at Princeton in which that Ht
tl prince of gallantry has slept for
BURR AND JACKSON.
It was said of Andrew Ja.kson, who
met Burr In the old senate chamber at
Sixth and Chestnut streets, that this
virile courtliness of manner which
caused Old Hickory nt one time to be
ranked with Charles X and the Indian
chief, Tecum&eh, as the threo nest H
!ng specimens of dlgnlt and graoloun
m?... cam? from contact wllh tho pol
ished urbanity of the New Yorker.
There Is not much foundation for this
remark, so far as It concerns the Inti
macy of the two men; but It serves to
show the regard In which Burr's man
ners were held by both the men and
women of his time. With his fine black
eyes, his eiaceful carriage, his ready
conversation on any subject and his
art, as he called It, of "talking sweet
little nothings," there were few women
. who could resist entirely his fasclna
toln when he choose to exert It. From
the time when the notorious Mrs. Cogh
lan, who, at fourteen, with the mould
and the desires of a woman, felt the
influence of the amorous young soldier,
(?own to the time when almost an oc
togenarian, he married the spirited
Madame Jumel for tho sake of her
property, onlv the period of his happy
union with Theodosla Prevost, Is rea
sonably free from the suspicion of an
inli'fue. The career of such a lover
of their sex would, indeed, naturally
Intel est all women.
NOT A HYPOCRITE.
Perhaps the most favorable thing
that can be said of Burr's conduct is
that he was never known to plav the
part of a hypocrite, not only In ordin
ary morals, but In politics and religion.
Ho often seems to have had a frank
way of confessing his vices nnd weak
nesses with the confidence of a vivac
ious man of intellect who can nfford, In
the absence of the moral sense In his
composition, to be candid. For exam
ple, ho wai naturally antagonistic to
AVashlngton, refused to acknowledge
any gieatness or capacity in him and
sneered nt him as a sort of lustlc block
htad. Tiut on such occasions as when
at the head of the senators he called
on Washington In his Market street
bouse to nresent the address of con
gratulation which he had written, he
used the adjectives of formal courtesy,
but each had privately an lnstlctlne
distrust and contempt of the other. If
n woman saddled upon him the re
sponsibility for tho paternity of a child,
as happened when he was long past
his three-score nnd ten, he- was in
clined to be proud of making the ac
knowledgement. When living here he
entertained Talleyrand and Volney and
other Frenchmen whom the people
looked upon as the vilest reprobates in
lrrellglon, and even offered hospitality
to Louis Phllllppe In his youth, he had
no apologies to offer. A Princeton lad
ot eighteen, he came to the conclusion
that the Calvlnlstlc theology of his
grandfather, the great Jonathan Ed
wards, and of hU father, tho Aaron
Burr who Is illustrious in the history
of the College of New Jersey, was a
humbug, deliberately rejected It. and
set up the Chesterfleldan code of the
Honor of a Gentleman as his moral
standard; and he never seems even
for the sake of political success to
have affected the appearance of piety,
despite the constant appeals made to
him by the clergy In the name of his
AS A LETTER WRITER.
It Is one of the traditions of Philadel
phia history that when Burr's father
died, the orphaned lad was brought
down from Princeton and sheltered 'or
a time In the Shlppen household. Tha
daughter of the house who married
Benedict Arnold, fled to him for pro
tection, and he kept the secret of her
complicity with her husband's treason
until after she was beyond the power
of her enemies to resent the disclos
ure. It was here that he vrote day
after day In the senate chamber to his
wife and his daughter Theodosla the
most charming little epistles. Burr ap
pears at his best In his relations to
thofe women. His wife was ten years
older than hlms.'lf, neither rich nor a
beauty and with children of her own
by n itrat marriage. But she must hav3
had kupreme charm of mind and man
ner to captivate Burr, who long held
her to be the finest and most elegant
woman ho had uvu? met. Sometimes,
tho Journey between New York and
Philadelphia belt's, a matter of at least
twenty-four hours, they would arrange
to meet each other half way. The sen
ate, at Sixth nnd Chestnut streets,
would adjourn on a Friday; Burr on
Haturday would Journey to tho north
ns 'er as Trenton or Trlnceton, and
there he would meet the mother of his
Theodosla and enjoy her society until
hi return to Philadelphia.
Ills letters to his llttlo Theodosla,
destined to become the wife of Alston,
cf South Caroll'a and to lose her llfo
at sea )n the bloom of her lovely wo
manhood, arc tull of tender and father
ly words of ndvlco as to how she should
study Horace- nnd Terence, how sho
shuuld enjoy tending Gibbon, then
frPBh from the press, as lie had done,
and how she should take caro to be plain
and abstemious In her habits of eat
ing nnd drinking. Here, too, It was
that he helped to make another little
utateaman "the great little Mndlson,"
ns women called the grnve nnd unlm
passioned Virginian happy In wedlock
by Introducing him to Mistress Dolly
Todd nnd opening the way to their
courtship In the cnndlc-llghted pnilor
of her mother's lodging house on Fourth
slteet. Lator on, when ho had becomo
ti widower, and was vice-president of
the United States, It was a Philadel
phia woman who tried to make him
promise tn become her husband,
THK PARENT OF TAMMANY.
It Is not necessary to go Into Burr's
public career, which was founded on
the lowest conception of tho relations
of a statesman to his fellows, to Justify
surprise over th'e women who aro apol
ogizing for him. He was tho virtual
originator of the Tammany system; he
was the first ot tho great machine tac
ticians In American politics; ho nar
rowly escaped tho penalties of treason,
nnd he was forced Into European exile.
Nothing would have amused him moro
than women discussing these ques
tions. He liked clever women; he liked
every buxom creature that responded
to his smiles, nnd when he wns In Eu
rope ho was gallant with them, all,
from German duchesses to London bar
maids; but he had no use for women
who dabbled In politics. It was one of
tho cardinal articles of his faith that
all women aro vain; that the sucest
way of gaining them 13 to flatter them,
and In this, ns in all his Int-lgues, thero
was the delicacy of a gentleman ab
horring mere crossness. But this wns
doubtless a matter of well-bred disci
pline. He seems to have had a sort
of philosophy that self-control Is real
ly the means of self-indulgence, und
he was as rigid as any modern health
reformer In his habits, his simplicity in
food and Ms care in drinking. It was
thus that Madame Jumel doubted his
fidelity, and mnde It a reason for their
separation when ho was on the verge
of eighty, and it caused him even then
to express his admiration for Fanny
Kemble as "a fine animal." In
his will he cave directions that
all his letters from his female corre
spondents should be burned. He neve.
had compunctions in these matters any
moro than ho had for tho duel with
Hamilton, which, In his old age, he
would call up laughingly In remem
brance with this piece of doggered ns
a satire on the horror of the multitude
at a. wax figure show:
"O, Burrl O, Burr! what tiast thou done?
Thou hast shooted dead great Hamilton.
You hid behind a bunch of thistle,
And shooted htm dead with a great boss
A POLISHED VILLAIN.
With all his unemotional cynicism
he professed to hold In contempt any
man who would ply deliberately tho
arts of seduction. He alwnys Insisted
that no one could Impute to him that
crime. There was, he said, no amour
In which he ever engaged when he had
not been met half way, and he htil
nothing but execration for n man whr.
would make an advance which was
not welcome. When he was In such
poverty that he had to borrow a $10
bill to keep him from want, he hesi
tated to ask It of a woman. These nnd
other such considerations of tho Ches
terfleldan codo can be pleaded In Ruir's
behalf; but, after all that can be slid,
may be gathered together and only
the absolute verities of his life ac
cepted, tt Is a. sorry, wretched, sel
fish and unwholesome character that
remains. Burr Is, In fact, the polished
villain of the opening drama of Amer
ican public life. A careless female In
stinct may go out to him as when
tho matinee girl contemplat"S his
agreeable compeer In a dross co.it
pleading before the foot light that he
is "a man with a past;" but now
many mothers and sweetheart would
really have their lads and their lovr-rs

HILL NYE ON BUZZ SAWS.
His Idcns of How They Worked nnd
How They Appealed to n .linn's
From the Mississippi Lumberman.
Owing to having been brought up in
Wisconsin, where you can scarcely
find a town that does not boast of nt
least one saw-mill, of greater or less
pretentions, Bill Nye was famllar with
them. One of the stories that he used
to tell when on the platformwlthJames
Whltcomb Riley, the Hoosler poet,
was about saw-mills and buzz-saws
and ran about as follows:
"North Wisconsin Is where they
yank a big wet log Into a mill and turn
It Into cash as quick as a railroad man
can draw his salary out of the pay-car.
The log Is held on a carrage by mean?
of Iron dogs, while It Is being worked
Into lumber. These dogs are not like
those we see on the front door steps
of a brown-stone front occasionally;
they are another breed of dogs.
"Tho managing editor of the mill
lays out the log In his mind and works
It Into dimension stuff, shingles, bolts,
slabs, edging two-by-fours, two-by-elghts,
etc., so as to use tho goods to
the 'best advantage. At one of these
mills, not long ago, a man backed up
to get away from the carriage and
thoughtlessly backed against a large
Haw that was revolving at the rate of
two hundred times a minute. The saw
took a large chew of tobacco from the
plug he had iln his pistol-pocket, nnd
then began on him. They gathered
him out of tho sawduBt and put him
into a nail keg and carried him away,
but he did not speak again. Life was
extinct. Whether it was the nervous
shock or tho concussion of the cold saw
ngalntt his liver that killed him, no
one ever know. We should never lean
on the buzz-saw when It moveth Itself

Sunday Sctoool Lesson for Septemkr 12.
Rom. XII, 9-21. t .
BY J. E. GILBERT, D. D., LL. D.,
Secretary ctf American Society of Religious Education.
INTKODUCTION.-As remarked In tho
notes on tho lesson of Juno 20 (QV) tho
latter part of Paul's letter to the Ramans
Is a deduction from tho earlier part, or an
application of tho doctrine of Justification
by faith. Ho evidently becks to coriect
tho mistake. If It arosu In any mind, that
th'o free forgiveness of the sinner by a
sovereign prerogative, carried with It any
license to subsequent sinning. On tho
contrary holy living Is enjoined upon nil
who aro thus by faith restored to Dlvlno
favor, (Verso 1). Tho remission ot a pen
alty becauso of pcnltcnco obligates hence
forth supremo regard to tho law and bu
premo service to the Law-glcr. (Ch. vl,
1-8). In our lesson today, tho apostle out
lines tho new llfo of tho believer under
several Important heads. Tho themes
are stated In brief sentences that appear
to bo but llttlo related. It 13 thereforo
ditllcult to make any close analysis, but
the one hero used will bo helpful, though
Imperfect. As wo proceed In tho study It
will bo noticed thnt tho apostlo gravltatts
between Inward conditions and outward
expressions, tho llfo and Its fruitage.
AFriJCTION-S. At tho beginning
(verses 0 nnd 10) wo havo directions con
cerning tho affections, the heart being
tho fountain ond demanding chief atten
tion. (Prov. lv, 23). Paul seeks to pro
mote brotherly lovo among the Roman
Christians, lecognlzlng tho fact that they
sustain the most lntlmato relations to
each other, and that, therefore, they
thould cultivate a, special regard among
themselves. (I Peter. II. 17). Throe Items
are here mentioned concerning biothcrly
lovo-lt must "bo without dissimulation,"
freo from hypocrisy, absolutely genuine!
It must bo "kindly," disposed to do good;
It must awaken a sense of honor so that
each would "prefer the other" (I Peter v,
E), causing ono to allow position and priv
ilege to brethren rather than to claim
them for himself. And yet this affection
must not blind the eyes or tho Christian
to questions of right and wrong. Ho must
at tho eame time abhor that which Is evil,
and, forsaking it, lie must always cleave
"to that which Is good." (Psalm xxxlv,
14). Or, to state It moro briefly, a gen
uine, active, deferential affection for tho
brethren must bo Joined with a sincere,
supreme and uncompromising lovo for
HUSINDSS.-Tho Chrlslan life must be
broader than tho church relations. It
must regulate all intercourse with the
grf-at outsldo world. Paul thereforo next
refers to man's business pursuits (verso
'.'), In a sentenco ac'apted to our time. Ho
declares that cno must not bo slothful
(I Thess. lv, 2), implying that an oarnest
pursuit of a chosen calling Is a duty.
The reason for such Injunction may bo
readily found In tho welfare of the Indi
vidual and of soclity ns a whole. Ho who
goes sluggishly to his secular task be
trays Ignorance of tho deep Import of all
earthly undertakings nnd brings dishonor
upon Him whom ho professes to repre
sent and serve. (Prov. x, 20). And yet to
avoid anothe- extreme, that of becoming
absorbed In tho earthly sen Ice, tho apos
tlo applies tho corrective. A man muat
temper his industry by a fervent religious
ppirlt, nnd bo must do all as a sen-ant of
God. (I. Cor. x, 31. It Is possible to nan
age a factory, the shop nnd tho store with
an eye single to tho glory of Clod.

of carefully stroking with bandoline or
other preparation each particular hair
in Its place. One day while in the chair,

looking fixedly at his smooth nnd pol
ished pate, said with a chuckle: "Blank
eld fellow, I Just wanted to tell you
that you'vo got one of the hairs of
your head crossed ovr the other."
"You Insult me, sir; you Insult me!"

VIUTUE8. Whither In tho churcfh or

will havo orportunlty to display many
vlrtueo which are hero commended.
(Verses 12 and 13). First, a Joyful antici
pation of tho future, or hope (Phil. Ill, 3);
second, patience( Heb. x, 30), undet tho
misfortunes of tho present; third, a con
stant cxerclso In prayer (Luke xlll, 1),
knowing that Divine grnco Is always
nccvlcd; furth, contributions to tho needs
of others! fifth, hospitality, ready to sharo
with others tho comforts of homo, (Heb.
Ill, 2). Theso virtues adjust tho soul to
ns many different relations to the ex
pected good, to tho prcEcnt adversity, to
tho help of God, to tho misfortune of
others, to the demand of strungcrs and
friends. They call Into play many noblo
traits of thu spiritual life, exhibit charac
ter in its best aspects, render llfo more
enjoyable, attract tho gocd will of men
and securo teho favor ot God. Kach of
these virtues grows In somo degreo In
every behoving heart, but cultivation will
Increase their growth. Hence tho apos
PERSECUTION. Tho next precept
(verso 11) Is now but little needeJ. Thoro
was a time when bo who attempted to
Bervo God would And serious and oven
cruel opposition. In that intolerant ago
men thought It necessary to pcrsecuto
thoso Who did not ngreo with them. (Acts
xxvl, 9). Our Lord foiewarned His dis
ciples that they would surfer nt tho hands
of enemies ns He had done (John xv, SO),
and Ho assured them that It would bo to
their great profit. (Matt, v, 2). Hero tho
apostlo inculcates tho spirit of meek
ness and of non-resistance, even ns tho
Saviour had done. (Luke vl, 2S-20). For
every injury received the Christian mU3t
return a blessing. Ho must be particular
ly careful not to Invoko any 111. Cursing,
Imprecation, wrath, are unbecoming a
follower ot tho Lord Jesus Christ, who
prayed for His enemies. (Luko xxlll:3l,)
even while suffering the most excruciat
ing pain at their hands, So that tho apos
tlo Is hero only re-affirming and applying
the teaahlng of the Master.
SYMPATHY. It Is exceedingly dlfflcult
for a Christian to adjust himself propeny
toward tho different classes whom he Is
called to meet and to cherish the right
spirit toward each. Tho natuial man has
his attachments ami antipathies. What
shall tho follower of Jesus do? Verses 13
and 10 call him to a sympathetic state.
With thoso who rejoice, ho must rejoice;
with thoso who weep, "ho must weep. (1
Cor. xll:2G.) This Is only the principle- of
lovo manifested toward tho fortunato and
the unfortunate. But In the sympathetic
condition ono la measurably plastic, re
ceiving impressions for Rood or 111. It
would bo natural to look most favorably
upon tho fortunate. Two rules aro laiU
down, both wholesome, to meet any such
result. There must be tho eame mind or
disposition toward all a uniform bearing,
regardlcs of another's lot. Furthermore,
bo cautious, lest thoso who aro In exalted
station gain tho greater favor, and, to
avoid this, condescend, Demi down or
stoop to tho lowly and humble. (Matt, xl,
29.) This W also another expression of
love, a regard for thoso who aro beneath
us being a suro proof that our hearts aro
moved by generous impulses. (Luko xlv.

INTBRCOUltSn.-Stlll further to regu
lato 'tho conduct of tho Christian" In his
Intercourse with men, tho npostlo pre-i
sonta three precepts (verses 17 nnd 18)
which aro moro closely connected that
they nt first appear. First, It injured, one
must not return tho injury, a wlso coun
sel viewed from any standpoint (1 Thess.
V, 15), enjoined by Jeaus (Matthew ,v, 33)
and by Moses (Leviticus, xlx, 18); second,
Id arranging secular matters and espe
cially acquiring property, let all things
appear strictly honest (II Corinthians,
vlll, 21); third, cultivate peace, by remov
ing from one's conduct and spirit all that
would cause utrlfo with any one (Ite
btews, xll, 14), so that If discord cotno It
shall be tho fault of others. Harmless
ncss, honesty, peaccableness these three
qualities that cannot well bo separated,
are Immensely Important, absolutely es
sential to tho spiritual welfare of tho be
liever and to his Influence In tho world.
Without these many are In perpetual
anxiety nnd discomfort, unablo to gain or
hold a idaco In tho esteem of thoso about
them, and henco unable to accomplish
much for tho cat. so ot God or man.
VICTORY. Our lesson closes with di
rections for mastering enemies, a high
art which all must dcslru to learn. He
who can transform a foo Into a friend Is a
conqueror greater than he who takes a
city. The directions (verses 19 to 21) de
scribe the process. Tho Injured party
must not nvengo hlrrf-elf, but must leave
tho offender with God. There Is an Inti
mation that tho Lord will repay He will
conduct the caso If men allow Him, give
Him room or oportunlty. If this first
rule Is disregarded there Is no hopo of ro
dross. Ho who punishes for 'njury re
ceived Is further removed than before.
(Matthew, xxvl, 62.) Rut, secondly, do
good to the enemy feed him nnd give him
drink, if ho has need, tho very advice
Jcsua gave (Matthew, v, 41) which no
man can follow unless tho heart 'has been
renewed by grace. Rut whero Is tho man
who can resist such treatment, who will
not repent of his wrong doing and sock
restoration to tho favor of one ill-treated".'
Such a courso thereforo enables ona by
goodness to triumph over evil.
SUMMARY. Tho precepts of thlsi les
son are nil Christian, not becauso they
aro in harmony with the teaching of
Christ, nor jet becauso they tend to make
a Chrlst-llko character (both which, how
ever, aro true), but because they accord
with Christ's theory of true living. He
never Intended to rcgulato men's conduct
by rule thart would havo been Judaistlc
and Pharisaic. Hut Ho sought to All the
heart with lovo and to make that the reg
ulative force. Precepts are valuable under
tho Christian bystom only as they revtal
what the heart will prompt, when lovo
dominates it. So our lesson covers
church relations, business engagements,
several personal virtues, the treatment of
enemies, the attltudo toward men in dif
ferent stations, tho behavior proper at
different times, the way to disarm foes,
and all of this is but a commentary on
the frulUgo of a regenerate and loving
nature. (Luke, i. 45.) Let tho heart of
man bo right, ond all his doing Fhall be
right. And yet, to know whether the
hcirt Is right we must know what the
conduct ought to be. (.Matthew, vil. 10.)
