Loving to smile on my face.

Their melodies cheerful and gay,
Welcoming beautiful Spring ;
Where the river floats gayly along,
In its winding way out to the Bea;

Where the friends of my youth live

To leave all I love on the earth,
May the Angel then find me asleep
In the beautiful land of my birth..

Thrilling Excitement Over a Dinner '
Cooked by a Tennessee Girl.
I heard of a young lady the other day
up in middle Tennessee, who, as river men
say, has taken another chute. The story
told about her did my soul good, and for
the comfort of other half-starved dyspep
tics like myself, whose tardy sustenation
is effected by means of fried chicken, sog
gy biscuits, greasy hash and sole-leather
fritters, I'll relate it. For years past, as
a mere matter of form-something handed
down from remo* antiquity-the officers
of the county fair held in the neighbor
hood where this young lady lived have
been in the habit of oil?ring a premium to
the lady (unmarried) cooking the best din
ner, lt was a dead letter. Nobody h?l
contested for the premium within the
memory' of the oldest inhabitant. This
year, however, the young lady of whom I
am speaking determined to compete for
the prize. Her name-I wish I could im
mortalize it-was Kate Janaway. The
fair men set up a stove for her, stretched
a canvas to shield her from the sun, and
about ll o'clock of the last day she went
The matter had been talked about by
every one in the neighborhood, and curi
osity was on tip-toe. A crowd collected
around the place where the stove was set
up, early in the morning, and kept in
creasing ; but when Miss Kate herself-a
buxom, handsome girl of nineteen, daugh
ter of the ex-Mayor of the town-ap
peared on the ground, and putting on a
white apron and rolling up her sleeves,
commenced operations, all other attrac
tions were nothing. Every one was eager
to see so novel a sight. There was a tree
near by which soon became black with
spectators, who had climbed up to get a
better view. The branches were finally
so burdened that one by one they broke,
precipitating those upon them to the
ground, until only one man was left in the
tree. He sat in "a iofty fork, with eyes
riveted on the scene below. No amount
of persuasion by those beneath, envious
of his better view, could induce linn to
come down. Even a bribe of ten ' dollars
failed. He said he yVas bound to see or die.

on apace. The'savory smell of the cook
ing food seemed to intoxicate the crowd,
which pressed nearer and nearer, lt took
all the police force on the grounds to keep
order. The time arrived for the trotting
match, announced as the sport of the day,
but the amphitheatre was empty. The
judges (with the exception of one crabbed
old widower), the timers, all were missing,
and so nothing could be done. At half
past two the dinner was announced ready
and the judges, happy men, scated them
selves at the table-the crowd regarding
them with ill-disguised envy. A roast of
beef, delicately done, was put steaming hot
upon the table, then followed corn pud
ding, whose delicate aroma fell upon thc
olfactories of the excited crowd "likebree
zes of Araby the blest ;" a profusion of
vegetables, cooked to- perfection, followed
next. Tlie judges ate ami ate, praising
the flavor of the food and the skill of the
cook at every mouthful. But when, at
last, a desert of piping hot apple dump
lings made its appearance the forbearance
of the crowd was at an end. They broke
through the ropes into thc ring with one
accord, and thc dumplings disappeared in
a trice. One old fellow, proprietor of a
store and owner of a big saw-mill, pro
posed to thc young lady on thc spot, but
ne was quickly collared ard led off the
grounds by two younger aspirants, who
made common cause against thc aged suit
or, saw-mill and all. That young lady
was the centre of attraction in her town
after the cooking feat the first week, and
her fame spread through all the country
round. An old bachelor fellow down in
Grundy county, with a farm so big that it
takes him all day to ride around it, and
cattle on a hundred hills, heard of her,
and made a pilgrimage all the way to that'
town to learn tho truth. He got the girl,
too, although some of the young men of
the place sued out a writ of habeas corpus
to prevent her being carried out of the
county. They were too late.
This is, I am aware, a ra th er sad ending
for so good a story, but devotion to the
truth compels me to give nothing but the
simple unvarnished reality.
?lie ought to have married that fellow
who set up there in the crotch of the tree
so lon" and at such fearful discomfort. He
wanted "her,, and he was a poorbilious dys
peptic whom splendid cqoking.Would have
soon restored to- usefulness and society,',
but be was poor.' Ah !

A Little Romance About Garibaldi.
A gentleman who sat next me the other
day at a dinner party gave me a little bit
of a romance about Marchesa Garibaldi,
as the second wife of the famous Italian
general is called. I had heard that she
was the wife of Garibaldi's son.
" Not at all," said my dinner table com
panion, a Milanese count, who knew all
abou^the strange affair ; " sbeSs the second
wife of the general himself. She left him
the day after the wedding, and they have
never met since." [
I looked all the questions I was dying
to ask, upon which lie added, with a laugh
and a shrug, as if he ?new more than was
proper to tell at that moment :
" No reasons were ever given on either
The subject was dropped, but it recalled
to me a strange story I had; heard some
years ago of a second marriage of Garibal
di's, and which served weil to join- on to
the unfinished or broken link that my
dinner acquaintance had giv^n me. I'll
tell it to you as it was told f to me, and
you can join the two links ornot, just as j
you please. It was at least a? dozen years
ago. The lady was young,Jtitled, rich,
handsome and fast. No nanje was given
me. She conceived a desperate, passionate
I admiration for the famous ']Liberator of |
Italy." She was young enough to be
Garibaldi's daughter, and he Was passing
then, as he has always, for tie inconsola
ble widower-the celebrated 5 Anita," his
first wife, who accompanied him through
many of his adventures, andj-vwhose sad
death has been so often and so touchingly
described, is supposed to be tHe only love
of Garibaldi's bfe. Nevertheless, the mar
riage took place between the -General and
the yoting Lombardy Marchesa. But sad
to relate, on the wedding day, after the
ceremony, Garibaldi received information,
with undoubted proofs, of thal' immorality
of his younc ' bride. Why .fiad ho not
I been informed sooner? I auVnot tell you
anything but the simple ator&as I heard
it. I never ask questions ons BUCH occa
sions. I think it keeps the ?ream of a
romance from riling properly]? When the
newly married pair were ieftalone, Garibal
di told his young wife what Ire had heard,
but said: "If you will say* you are an
honest woman, I will take your word."
" But if I can not, what then ?" asked
the March esa. ? .
" We must part forever th? very mo
ment,'1 replied Garibaldi. J ..
The young woman turnen, left her
husband of an hour, and never saw him
again. It was said that the stories against
her character were false, and the young
girl, though gay, was innocent. But her
pride was so wounded at the Charge being
made by her husband atthatmoment, anc
is such a peremptory manner, that she I
scorned to justily herself; his want of j
faith in her 'dispelled her illusions and
broke the charm of her love.
A Mother-in-law's Fast Ride.
Joe. S. is the fortunate possessor of a
mother-in-law, and, what fie probably
thought more of, among his horseB was
one known as Quaker. Now 'Quaker was
agoodroader, and could and -would jerk
a wagon, with two in it, in 2:51 on the
road, and the harder he was pulled in and
the moro he was yelled at, the faster he
meant to go. In fact, wLen'iSa competing
horse ranged alongside and ?strong pull
was taken, accompanied By. yells, he
thought he must do his tevfjfrest on. trot
ting, and you bet h? "m^iTl^ot maa
years ago, nuv~ u." ^?.^..W- was neli
where Master Joe then lived, he had old
Quaker hitched up to a 130 pounds three
quarter seated wagon, and, a.- he was get
ting in, mother-in-law wished to go with
him. He informed her that he was going
to the town clerk's office at the lower end
of the village (about a mile), aK! if she
was in a hurry to return she would have
to drive back alone, and then cramped the
wagon for her admittance; arid with head
drooping and slouching gait old Quaker j
walked along, taking the ill assorted pair
to the town clerk's office. Now, be it
known, Joe dearly loves fun, and will have
it as often ' as possible, while mother-in
law is a rigid, old-fashioned, sky-blue Bap
tist, undoubted.lv very good, but unfortu
nately possessed* with "the idea that to
laugh is to sin. lt so happened that every
team at that time was going to thc fair J
grounds, 05 else was walking ; so Quaker
had no chance to "score up," but just as
they arrived at the office of the town
clerk, S. saw Jack Barnes coming on his
way to the fair. Now Jack's mare has
the reputation of being 4 or 5 seconds
faster than old Quaker. To turn Quaker
around, jump out, and advise mother-'
law to drive slow going home, was but a
minute's work ; and then holding up his
hand to attract Jack's attention, he told
him he would pay chicken fixings and et
ceteras if he would range alongside Qua
ker at specdl yell, and spirit the old horse
up the street to the Fair Ground's entrance.
A nod, and Jack touches Lady Cul ter with
his whip, sings out git! and lays for Qua
ker, who, hearing the stepper coming,
grabs at his bit. Mother-in-law takes
hold of reins in front of the buttons, puts
feet against brace iron in frout, and as the
lady ranges alongside; Jack yelling lively,
mother-in-law takes her strongest pull,
screaming whoa ! to stop her " animile."
But he di?nt stop-not much-he didn't.
The pull was just enough to steady him
good ; whoa he evidently considered to be
meant for a sell to the other horse, and
squatted to go' his level best, and just did
it. Now you bet ! Barnes was actually
getting left behind, and .warming up to his
work he commenced in right good earnest
to sing out, "Hi Yarr! Go er long h What
are you about ! Git, won't yer?" and they
did git-nice-" both on 'em." The peo
ple they passed seeing their speed and the
old lady's hat on the back of her neck,
her shawl streaming out behind, and the
courage with which she hung on to the
lines, clapped their hands and encoura
gingly sung out, " Good, old gal !"-" Gay
old bird'"-"2:40 ?"-"Bully for old Qua
ker!" And as they, passed the two hotels
the fast boys on the piazzas gave them
three cheers with a vim-in fa'' with sev
eral extra vims.
Joe's motherin law took the first even
ing train for her Green Mountain home.
His parting words were, "he should not
dare allow lier to drive Quaker again, as
he had cautioned her to drive slow, and
she had gone and beat one of th? fastest
horses in town."
Joe said next day, with a quiet twinkle
in his eye, that his wife did not giye him
a "curtain lecture" *h*t night, and when
parties put up their Uttje bets on it, he
proved by Jack Barnes that they went out
to Pittsburgh for their chicken fixings and
etceteras, and didn't get back until 6
o'clock next morning.
ACOBPSEGETS OUT or THE COFFIN"
ANd SPEAKS TO THE WATOHEBS.-A few
days since a young lady of Urbana, Ohio,
who had been ill a short time, died, and
the body was prepared by sorrowing friends
and attendants for interment and placed
in the coffin. The night before th? day
of the funeral, a number of young lady
watchers were seated in a room .adjoining
that in'which the coffin had been placed,
when, greatly to their consternation, the
figure bf the dead girl appeared before
them and spoke faintly. When the hor
rified attendants had'tomeyrhit overcome
their fright, seeing that the supposed corpse
was really a thing of life, they took meas
ures to care for their friend sp startlingly
restored to them almost from the very
grave, and she received, proper attention,

A Sexagenarian Monster.
CONCORD, N. H., Nov. 3,1S72.
On the morning of the 25th ultimo the
young granddaughter of Sylvester Day, of
Northwood, about twenty-live miles dis
tant from here, suddenly and mysteriously
disappeared. All efforts to ascertain a
cause for her voluntar}' absence were una
vailing, as were also all efforts to discover
her whereabouts. In a day or two circum
stances transpired to lead to the belief
that she had been murdered, and
AN OLD MAN NAMED FRANKLIN B. EVANS
was suspected as the murderer. Suspicions
were so strong against him that the Depu
ty Sheriff of the town was persuaded to
take him into custody, although there was
no evidence to justify such a proceeding.
Evans, upon being arrested, stoutly denied
all knowledge of the whereabouts of the
young lady, and at length there was a re
action in the public feeling against him.
The story that the girl had eloped obtain
ed general belief." Sheriff Drew, however,
did not share in this opinion, but felt
CERTAIN THAT THE YOUNO WOMAN HAD
?nd that old Evans was the murderer.
He employed all sorts of means to get
him to confess tho suspected crime, finally
telling him that if he would own up and
disclose the whereabouts qi the body he
would assist him in his escape to Canada,
and also give him one-half of the reward
which had been offered for the discovery
of the remains. The old fellow'
FELL INTO THE TRAP AND CONFESSED
that he enticed the young woman into the
woods and after outraging her committed
the further crime ot murder. Having
thus admitted his guilt he went with the
officer into the woods and pointed out the
exact spot where the murdered girl's re
mains were buried. They were concealed
beneath an old stump, some brush and
just sufficient earth to hide them from the
view of a passer-by. The body was most
horribly mutilated, and there was every
evidence that the poor girl made a desper
ate struggle for chastity and life. The
remains were brought into the town and
placed in a village store, where they were
viewed by the excited citizens and the
grief-stricken parents, and then handed
oVer to a Coroner, who immediately com
menced an investigation.

MORE INCENDIARISM.-We learn that
on Tuesday night last, about ll o'clock,
the kitchen of Mr. Albert Spearman, near
Jalapa, was discovered to be on fire, and
was soon totally destroyed. There had
been no fire in it since noon of that day.
It was clearly the act of an incendiary.
And again on Friday night last about
the same hour the. gin house of Mr. N. B.
Davenport, in this county, was set on fire
by some fiend, and thc building with twen
ty-one bales of cotton bumed. The lurid
light of this burning was seen in town
and excited some alarm, it being at the
first supposed to be from some building in

The Wanting has been Heeded.
Since the exposure of the attempts
made by certain unscrupulous local deal
ers, to palm oil' their coarse astringents,
made from cheap and impure materials,
in the place of tho great national tonic,
Hostotter's Stomach Bitters, public opin
ion has set strongly against these em
pirics and their preparations. Their oc
cupation is goue, or soon will be. When
thc light is let into deception it soon
wilts down. Persons who trille with
their own health, by using unknown pre
parations, with no guarantee to sustain
them, when an established specific,
proven by twenty years experience to
be exactly what it is claimed to bc, is
within their reach, aro sure io repent
their temerity. Many have done so in
this instance, but it is hoped that thc
truth plainly spoken has arrested the
evil. In the meantime the demand for the
loading protective medicine of America
was nover so great .-.is it has been this sea
son. From thc fever and aguo districts
of tho west, south wost, and south, it is
literally overwhelming, and it may be
said of the advices from all pat ts of the
cures it is effecting in dispepsia, bilious
complaints, and chronic constipation,
that/'their name is legion.'' Every
where the sick and feeblo seem to have
realized the importance of "holding fast
that which is good," and of avoiding
what is spurious and dangerous."
Tile numorotiH " Bitters," under vari
ous names, which mercenary dealers en
deavor to substitute for Hostetter's Stom
ach Bitters, should be avoided, for their
own sakes, by thc sick and public al

in bottles only, and never sold in bulk.

But go at once and buy a bottle oj thc

beholding the change ; whuther the blem
ish it is desired to remove be sallowness,
blotches, pimples, freckles, roughness,
or an unnatural pallor, it is bound to

this wonderful agent. To say. that the
blemish disappears,' does not, however,
convey any idea of thc effect produced
by this celebrated beautifier. The un
sightly tinge, whether diffused over the
whole countenance or in spots, or patches,
is replaced by a uniform, pearly bloom,
to which no description can do justice.
