A LOAFER'S SOLILOQUY.
Seth Grimes and I were classmates once,
And I was rich and be was poor ;
I had; alas, it was my bane,
The wealth a father left in store.
' Seth toiled at morn, and noon, and night,
Until his hands were hard and brown,
Topay his hoard and tailor's bills,
While I was lounging round the town,
But mostly in the dry-goods store,
To see the pretty girls come in,
Or smoking with my jolly peers,
Who were the fools of auld lang syne.
The village belles looked proud and fierce
If Seth made e'en the least advance ;
And none from Inez down to Poll,
Would be his partner at the dance.
But L half drunk with sparkling port,
Waltzed with the direst of the fair ;
And high-born Inez's proud papa
Oiice asked what my intentions were.
Thus stood Seth Grimes and I at school,
And yet on exhibition day,
Although the ladies praiser! rae much,
He somehow bore the prize away.
In brief, through long and weary nights,
He stored his mind with knowledge
And I-learned how to guzzle wino,
And how to pick a good cigar.
Some three and thirty years have passed
Since we on life's great sea set sail ;
And lo, the beam is sadly turned
In fortune's strange, uneven scale.
My vaunted wealth has taken wings
And flown away to parts unknown;
Indeed-with sorrow be it said
I'm on the poor list of the town.
While Seth who toiled to pay his way,
Until his hands were hard and brown,
Is now receiving his reward
As Senator at Washington.
Falling from the Clouds.
WAFELLO, IA., September 26.
The managers of the Agricultural Fair,
now being held at this place, extensively
advertised an extraneous attraction in two
balloon ascensions by' Professor J. H. Bo
ley, the original date for the first. being
the 24th. The professor was a practical
aeronaut, living at Aledo, 111., but spend
ing the summer months each year.in mak
ing ascensions at We3tern State and coun
ty fairs. On the appointed day a heavy
rain enforced a postponement, but yester
day was bright and clear, and arrange
ments for the event proceeded under the
eyes of a vast attendance. The balloon
used was not filled with gas, but was a
large Mongolfier, consisting of
A BAU FOP. HOLDING HOT AIR,'
to which was attached by ropes a light
trapeze. These balloons are regarded by
aeronauts as extremely dangerous, because
of their aptitude for catching fire or mak
ing rapid descents when the air in the bag
cools too suddenly. None but reckless
operators use them. A wind sprang up
in the afternoon and threatened to neces
sitate another adjournment, bat at 4 o'clock
it had so nearly subsided that, unwilling
to disappoint the spectators, Boley pre
namd to mak< . ~ T,,?i folds of
THE BALLOON WAS OX FIRE.
It had caught from the ilame used to in
flate it, and the rush upward through the
air had the effect of a tremendous draft,
sending the jets of lire down the ropes
which held the trapeze. The doomed man
instantly saw his peril, but could do noth
ing. Hot air balloons are not furnished
with valves, or with any apparatus for
regulating their flight. They rise until
th? air within them cools, and then drop
more or less rapidly, the Bpeed depending
upon the state of the outside atmosphere.
Boley was not more than three hundred
feet from the ground when the flames
were discovered, und thc breeze was car
rying him to the northeast. The heat of
the flames seemed to send the balloon
higher with increasing rapidity, until an
altitude of not less than twelve hundred
feet was reached. To avoid falling while
performing his usual gymnastic feats on
the trapeze, he had attached a strap from
his belt to the bar. Upou first discover
THE TERRIBLE PLIGHT
he had apparently tried to disengage him
self from this, intending, probably to drop
to thc ground ; but before he had got him
self loose from the strap, the balloon had
reached such a height that a fall would
have been moie certain death than to
cling to the balloon. Meantime, the bal
loon was being rapidly consumed. One
of the ropes from which the trapeze was
suspended burned off, but Boley still held
on. Then the other gave way, and he
tell. He struggled impotently at first in
his frightful descent, but kept a nearly
erect position. Then he turned on his
side, but a piece of the burning canvass
still hanging to the piece of rope, and
presenting a sort-of resistance to the at
mosphere, he was straightened up again as
he clung to it. Although he struck more
than a half mile away from the starting
place, the spectators, now breathlessly si
lent,.distinctly heard the ?-bud as his body
struck the ground. A stampede to the
spot ensued, which waa joined in by the
aeronanut's wife, who had been a horrified
witness of the ascension and its end. The
body was found
DRIVEN TO THE KNEES
in the ground, having struck squarely on
the feet, then falling forwards on its face.
The leg bones were broken off and driven
into the body, and scarcely a bone of any
kind remained unfractured. The body
was like a mass of jelly, so terribie had
been the concussion. Several men who
reached the spot immediately after the
fall, having followed the course of the
balloon on horseback, say that no signs of
life were then visible. Mrs. Boley started
for home this morning with the body.
Too BAD.-An old lady as far down
the decline of life us seventy-nine, like
people generally about that age, was con
stantly worrying herself about something
or other. She lost her spectacles on one
occasion. These were replaced by anew
pair out of ^hich one of the glasses soon
tollowed the former missing pair. While
the latter were being repaired, the other
pair were found. Finally both pairs cam?
home, and her indulgent son, on the same
day, presented her with a pair of gold
spectacles. On receiving the whole three
pairs of specs in good-looking order, the
old lady, m a subdued voice, exclaimed
with a long-drawn sigh, " Oh dear 1 what
have I got to worry myself about now ?"
A Hard-shell Baptist minister over in
Indiana, who mai ried a fortnight after his
wife's death, made the following satisfac
tory explanation in the pulpit the Sunday
following : " I searched the Scriptures from
Ginisees to Riverlations and found plenty
of promises to the widder, but nary one
to the widderer.'; And BO I took it that
the good Lord didn't waste sympathy on
a man when it was in his power to. com-1
fort himself, and havinga first-rate chanco
to marry in the Lord, 1 did so, and would
do so again. Besides, brethren, I consid
er that poor Patsy was just as dead as
she ever would ba."

South Carolina Monument Association.
The Board of Directors of the South
Carolina Monument Association desire
again to bring before the people of the
State the work in which they are engaged.
They have bought and paid for a most
eligible site in Columbia for the erection
of the monument-that commanding em
inence so well known as " Taylor's Hill,"
and have entered into a contract with an
artist in Louisville, Kentucky, for the
construction of the monument ; the granite
to be furnished from our own State quar
ry, and the marble from the famous quar
ries of Carrara, Italy, where the marble
part of the work will be executed. In
April, 1874, the corner-stone of the mon
ument will be laid, and then the Board
will feel that a large part of their labor
bf love has been accomplished. There re
mains, however, $6,000 more to be raised
before ?he work can be completed, and it
is earnestly hoped that this sum will soon
be made up, and this last tribute paid to
our honored dead and the principles for
which they died. The women of South
Carolina, who have assumed this sacred
task, do not feel that this work conflicts
in any way with the duty they owe to the
widows and orphans of our fallen heroes;
indeed, the Monument Association is, in a
great measure, composed of these bereaved
ones, and there is scarcely one member to
whom the Southern cause is not doubly
sacred from its having cost her the life
blood of her dearest and best. While,
therefore, they feel it a proud privilege to
assist, the widow and orphan of the Con
federate soldier, they know that this is a
privilege, in its very nature transitory,
and they would, in the enduring granite
and marble, place on record, before com
ing generations, their undying fidelity to
the principles of South Carolina, in "her
best days, and their gratitude to the men
who died to maintain them. Confidently,
then, the Board of Directors appeal to the
women of the State to rally once more to
their aid, $200 from each District will give
them the required sum. Surely, for this
small sum, they will not appeal in vain.
The ladies of Columbia will again open
a bazaar, during the fair, in that portion
of the fair building allotted to them bv
the courtesy of the officers of the South
Carolina Agricultural and Mechanical
Association. Contributions of any kind
will be gratefully received, and may be
sent to either ot the following Board of
Directors : Mrs. William Wallace, "Mrs.

?vv two thousand articles. We demand a r
?e'. turn to specie payments, and that the pc
in icy of paper inflation, protective tari If ai
url government subsidies shall be abandon
ed to the half-civilized nations and ages
to which it is a relic, because it plunders t'
?st farmers of the United States both in tl
to income and outgo ; it converts our foreij
id commerce into an unsafe speculation, ai
id our domestic trade into a game of chane
,1- it breeds extravagance in our homes, ai
dishonesty in public and private trusts ;
fosters corrupt combinations o? section
interest, and it is the prime cause of tl
late financial dis;isters. We point tl
country to the true remedy in the tri?
and historical principles ol' the old Dem

National, ?tate and municipal life, wbi<

Lines in memory of DAVID YANCEY
HAMILTON, infant child of Mr W. M.
and Mrs. CHAKLOTTM HAMILTON, who
died the 28th July last, aged throe years,
three months and three days.
Decked in bright robes of spotless white,
And in the land where there's no night,
Verging the pure crystal stream,
Is our dear little Yancey now.
Dear ma and pa he sweetly sings,
You know my voice with music rings;
As round the Savior's throne I fly,
Not hid from His all-seeing ?ye.
Come, O come, to this happy landy
Emmanuel here in glory stands ;
You know He's ready to impart,
Holy Rest to the pure in heart.
A river whose pure waters shine,
More than supplies this soul of mine ;
It is a stream that noes impart,
Life, health and strength to every heart.
The Savior hero doth reign supreme,
Over all His own precious ones ;
Nor would they leave this blest'abodo.
A Life Insurance Company Busted.
At St. Louis, Mo., on the 7th, the State
Superintendent of Insurance tiled a po
tition in the Circuit Court asking for an
injunction to restrain the St. Louis Mu
tual Life Insurance Company from trans
actingany further business, and espe
cially from issuing new policies, reinsur
iug any of its risks or paying out any
money whatever. Tho petition further
asks for the appointment of a Receiver
and a decree- dissolving the Company
and winding up its affairs. The petition
is bas^d upon the fact, as the Superin
tendent alleges, that an examination of
the affairs ol' the Company discloses its
liabilities to exceed its assets by ?904,955
exclusivo of tho $ln?,000 capital stock.
Tho writ of injunction was granted.

"you infernal old scoundrel you, if you

laced, mackerel-eyed thing again that
you looked at to-night, I'll bust your
