CALLING THIS ANGELS IN.
We mean to do it. Some day, some day.
Wo moan to slacken this fevered nish
That ia wearing oar very souls away ;
And grant to our loaded hearts a hush
That is only enough to let them hear
The footsteps of angels drawing near.
We mean to do it. Oh, never donbt
' When the borden of daytime broil is o'er.
We'll sit and muse while the stars come
As the patriarchs sat at the open door
Of their tents with a heavenward gazing
To watch for the angels passing by.
We've seen them afar at high noontide,
? When fiercely the world's hot flashing
Yet never have bidden them torn aside,
And tarry awhile in converse sweet;
Nor prayed them to hallow the oheer wo
To drink of our wine and break our bread.
We promise our hearts that when the stress
Of the life-work reaches the longed-for
When the weight that we groan with, hin
We'll loosen our thoughts to such repose
AB banishes Care'B disturbing din,
And then-we'll call the angels in.
The day that we dreamed of comee at
When, tired of every mocking quest,
And broken in spirit and shorn of strength,
We drop, indeed, at the door of rest,
And wail and watch as the day wanes on
Bat the angels we meant to call are gone !

Th? Romance of this Remarkable
Did the Circonstances Warrant His
Conviction t-The Story of His Plot
-Burr's Motives for His I nt end
ed Expedition, as Given by
One of His Accomplices
From the Philadelphia Times.
Those who desire to ascertain troth
and who will judge as men desiring
to do right, who believe charity to be
a virtue and who consider that their
judgments of characters of men ought
to be formed in that merciful spirit
of justice which they themselves may
require in passing down the uncer
tain road of life may not believe that
Aaron Burr waa guilty of " high trea
son." It ia not a single act of right
or wrong which should determine the
character of an individual. His true
character can only correctly be un
derstood by following him through
life, analyzing his deeds and discover
ing whether or not the principles
whioh governed him were virtuous.
Few men in this life will bear a cri ti
cal examination into every act and
if every man ia to be damned in nub
lio estimation because one or two dark
Bpotfl may be found in the midst 01 ['
ones, then we venture
safely the in- fi
veetigation of every ordeal
We find in the history of Texas by
Gen. Mosley Baker,Texas veteran, one
of the Spartan band at San Jacinto,
who gives the particulars of Aaron
Barr's parp?se in his intended expe
dition against Mexico not in the way
as intended to settle the disputed in
tentions of Barr, but as a part and
- parcel of the history of Texas. He
makes use of the Burr incident among
other responsibilities of the United
States government in respect to the
Texas revolution. He does it to clear
. ly represent other important occur
rences and other importan t personages.
Belief In Barr's Gailt.
General Baker was a student of
William Oraven, an English gentle
man who had been associated with
Barr, and who, with Barr, was ar
rested ia the viciaity of the Tombig
bee river, ia Alabama, and conveyed
to Richmond, Va., for trial. Rich
mond was at the time the very focus
? of Jeffersonianiem and the public
mind was already prepared for Burr's
conviction. Never, perhap?, io any
country was there a greater unanimity
of opinion upon any subject than that
of Barr's gailt of high treasou. Never,
perhaps, was there a greater display
of talent and ?loquence and never
was there a more patient, fair and
impartial trial. Had chief Justice
Marshall never before, or after, per
'formed a virtuous act, the decision of
the oonrt in Burr's case ought to
have immortalized him. Rumor, with
her thousand tongues, had been busy,
and President Jefferson, with all his
noble qualities, possessed some of the
frailties of man, and he perhaps re
ceived as troth the created fictions
concerning Burr's intended treachery.
William Oraven was Baker's pre
ceptor, and was a gentleman whose ve
racily among those whoknew him well
was like unto Omar's wife's-beyond
a suspicion. From Craven Biker
learned the following:
Mr. Craven had been one of a large
firm in London who were engaged in
the Mexican trade ; had resided many
years at the City of Mexico, and had
daily opportunities of witnessing the
degradation to which the maps of the
people bsd been reduced by the
naughty and tyrannical aides de namp
of the Spanish government ; that in
consequence of heavy losses he waa
compelled to emigrate to the United
States, At the city of Washington
ha, among other distinguished citizens,
WAS introduced to Mr. Barr, with
whom he contracted the moot intimate
acquaintance, and their intercourse
was characterized by a frank and cor
dial friendship. Barr inquired of
bim very particularly touching the
political, moral ana social condi
tion of. the Mexicans, and received
all tha in formation which many years'
experience in Mexico had enabled him
to collect. He informed Burr that
the mass of the people were ignorant,
superstitions and unacquainted with
their rights, bat that there were many
among them destined for distinction,
and among these there was scarcely a
man that was not restless and discon
tented tinder the reigning gorern
ment, and only needed some encour
agement from abroad to enable them
to undermine the Spanish dynasty I
and prostrate its already crumbling h
columns to the earth. v
First Step of the Conspiracy.
He stated that Burr believed that
bis reputation was lost iu the United
States if he remained in the country ; i j
that he was a man of rare talents and 4
acquirements ; that he wae ambitious
in the extreme and was ripe for any
enterprise that promised even a hope
of retrieving his oharacter, and in any
attempt for that purpose Burr intend
ed to signalize himself elsewhere, not
doubting but success would blunt the
malice of many of his enemies, and
that this would in the end enable
him to atone for the death of Hamil
ton, for whose memory he cherished
the greatest respect, and declared
that Alexander Hamilton had been
used by worse men for the purpose
of getting rid of one or the other or,
if possible, both.
Burr's nrac step was to open a cor
respondence with some of the leading
men in Mexico and tht n to traverse
the western States, for the purpose of
sounding some of the most influential
citizens of the Mississippi valley and
that success in both undertakings sur
passed even what they had been wont
to expect It was found that many
men in the western country had ideas
of conquest and fame. There were
many such men in the valley of the
Mississippi and in all the Spanish
dominions in America besides, while
the patriots in Mexico bailed them as
disciples of freedom and furnished
the outline of a systematic plan for
Wbat Was tobe Done.
It was suggested by citizens of the
United States that Burr Bhould ap
proach the frontier of Mexico and
establish his headquarters on the
Washita, within the limits of our
country, but that he peremptorily de
clined. It was Anally arranged that
they should float down the Mississippi
and go on a vessel at the Bahze,
which the king pirate of the gulf,
Lafitte, was to have in readiness, and
sail for Gal ves'on island, then in his
possession. It was further understocd
that trading houses were to he estab
lished among all the surrounding
tribes of Indians, for the purpose of
buying their friendship, and that, if
possible by any peaceable means, the
inhabitants of the old Spanish towns
of San Antonio, Nacagdoohea and
others in Texas. The inhabitants
were to be conciliated and enlisted in
the cause by ogents who under pre
tense of selling goods, were to reside
in these places. Should this ultimate
ly fail the fortresses in Texas were to
be taken forcible possession of and
used SB depots as soon as the patriots
in Mexico were ready to co operate
effectually. It was clearly under
stood that no attempt whatever should
be made to dismember the United
States or interfere in any way with
her people or her laws further than
the fact of concocting a Boheme in
the country for the above mentioned
Failure of the Scheme. ^

river much sooner than time was ah
jforded to complete all arr engomen ts,
?and no sooner was there an appear
ance of danger than many of those
who had been most active in prepara
tions withdrew their support and for
warded information to General Wilk
inson, then in command at New Or
leans, which together with instruc
tions from the government, would
have made it impossible for Burr and
his party to pass that place.
Under such circumstances it was
proper to leave the Mississippi and
go to Florida, where Burr hoped to
meet assistance from abroad and in
gratiate himself into the good grands
of influential persons there, who were
known to be extremely tired of the
Spanish yoke and ripe for a revolu
tion in the government. But after
undergoing many difficulties and pri
vations they w-re captured and all
their golden dreams vanished ic thin

The circumstances were not soffi
jiently strong to warrant Burr's ar
rest, if taken in connection with his
enterprise against the dominions of a
lation with whom we were at p .ace.
President Jefferson from rumors, but
?ertainly not fi om proof, believed it
vas possible for Burr to form a com
bination for the purpose of dismem
bering tlie union.

By eight o'clock the town began t<
fill with people from all theeurround

streets looked like a fourth of Jul]
in Atlanta. The train from Gaines
ville came in at nine o'clock crowdet
with men, whose shouts as the trait
moved through the streets, could havi
been heard for a mile. Promptly a
half past eleven tl "Talton Guardi

but little to say on way to gallows,
telling every one he was ready.
At the gallows he stood up in the
wagon, showing not the least sign of
fear. He spoke in a rambling man
"I want you all to meet me in
heaven. Raise your children right.
Never marry a base woman. You
eee what one hae brought me to. Be
sure the woman lovee you before you

A colored minister prayed and they
eang the hymn " Why should I die ? '

his voice was heard above all others.
He got out of the wagon and climbed
to the scaffold without any help.

He said nothing after the rope was
placed around hie neck, except:
"That is a good rope. I am ready."
Deputy Sheriff Knight pulled the

The Story o? the Crime.
This is the third hanging in this
county within the last two years.
Each of the criminals were colored
men, and were hardenod wretches
who well deserved their fate. On the
12th of February of this year Bill
McGauhey and his wife, who lived in
a cabin iu Mooroo, became involved
in a quarrel about leaving Monroe
and moving to Gainesville Bill had
said previously that he would kill hie
wife uniese she consented to go with
him to Gainesville. He was iaalona
of other meu hore, and wanted to get
her beyond their roach. The day of
the murder he weut to his home, closed
the door and demanded that hin wife
consent to go with him to Gainesville.
She refused, and ho HI ruck hrr a 1er
ribla blow on tho head with an axe,
which knocked her senseless on the
floor. Ho then cut two fearful gash
es on either side of her neck with a
razor, and v.ith the panie instrument
inflicted two dreadful wounda in her
breast. Ile then cut twe small gash
es on his own neck, and left the house,
telling those he met that bia wife cut
him first and then he cut her. She
lingered for two weeks and died. Bill
was tried in August, the above facts
wore proven and the jury within a
few minutes brought in a verdict of
guilty without recommendation, and
the judge sentenced him to be hung
in private on the lGth of October.

Not one of them would save his lifo

An Important Occisi?n.
In a case tried to-day against four
persons, makers of a note, one of
whom is a married woman, the wife
of one of the makers, who signed the
note as a surety, Judge Hudson made
an important decision as to the- con
tracts of married wom*n. Section
2037, General Statutes, provides that
a married woman may "contract and
be contracted with as to her separate
ostate in the same manner as if she
were unmarried." The Oourt held
that under this statute a married
woman cannot bind herself in law
unless the contract concerns her sepa
rate estate, or unless, in making it,
she intended to charge the payment
upon her separate estate ; and that
the mere fact of her signing the note
is not evidence of such intention.
When a married woman becomes sure
ty for any one, esr ecially her hus
band, ehe must expressly declare,
either orally or in writing, or it must
be clearly proved that ene intended
to bind her separate estate. Other
wise, her contract is void.
The lawyers say this is the first de
cision in construction of this statute,
which was passed in 1882. The de
cision, in brief, construes it as intend
ed not to enlarge but to restrict the
contracts of married women. The
jury found for the lady and against
the other defendants.-Register.
Bob Toombs' Little Romance?
CENTRALIA, October 18.-A story
is told here of the dying Bob Toombs,
which smacks of true romance. It
seems that the old southern statesman
once loved a Massachusetts girl, who
gave her heart to another. A BOD of
Toombs' old Hame entered the north
ern army, and was made prisoner and
taken to Libby prison.
In some way Toomba, who was then
a member of the Davis cabinet, heard
that the son of one whom he still re
membered kindly was in the prison
pen, and he hunted him up. He spent
some time in conversation with the
lad, for the prisoner was a mere boy,
and soon afterwards an order reached
the officials to release and send him
north. This was done, and it waa
always understood in Richmond that
the love Bc' Toombs had in his heart
for the flame of his youth opened the
grated doors to her soldier son.

Presently the old man came in, and,
after a short conversation with Mr.

" You muet ask no questions," said
the old man, and he smiled as he
etroked his daughter's hair fondly.
" Mr. Coshinigin wished to see me in
regard to a little matter which for the
present muat remain a secret."
" I know, papa," pleaded the girl,
" but you might give me just a little
hint of what it was-just a word,
"Oh, well," he replied indulgently,
"since you must know, Mr. Coshini
gin wanted to borrow five cents to get

' Of all stomach questions this is the

will hardly need any further inslruo

AND OUR AIM
IS TO KEEP
The Best Shoes in Augusta
at the Lowest Prices!
20 lLogical Points fer Consumers.
1st. When you buy. you want to buy
a good Shoo. * Isn't that so?
2d. When yon buy a Shoo, yon want a
denier io Ml you exactly what a .Shoe is
Isn't rlint KU?
Hrd. N M. Mu-ph ey A Son never mis
repre-ent a shoe merely to soil it. Isn't
4th. They represent Hie oldest Shoe
House in Augusta. Experience is cer
tainly worth something Isn't that so?
5th. Having money to hu? with, and
baying exe?nalvdy 'or cash, and from
Munn facturera, they get th? lowest pri
ces. Isn't i lu; KO ?'
Orb. Th My aro good buyers. Isn't that
7th They aro conscientious men. Isn't
8lh. TLey are not like some dealers,
wanting tn make a barret of money on
wie pair of Sho^a. Isn't th?a so?
9lh. They believo in the low profit eys- j
tem Isn't that ao?
10th. N W Murphey A Son aro the
anly Shoo Doalers in Augusta that buy
and aell Shoes exclusively for Cash,
lau't that so?
llth. X W. Murphey A Son aro the
Dilly Shoo Dealers in Augusta that sell
ip?ei*] Hhrww with the price tnarknd
plainly on tho bottom* Isn't that so?
12th. They originated thai systom In
Augusta. Isn't that so?
18th. N. W. Murpbey A Son are tho
only Shoo Dealers in Augusta that sell
the c<?lebrat?d ir.mes Moans |3 Shoe.
Isn't that so?
14th N. w. Murphey A Son are the
onlv Shop Deniers in Augusta that Bell
the A A. Battle GO .Shu? Ian't th&tao?"
15th V W Mnrphey .* Son are the
only Shoe Dealers in August* that sell
the f?reat *2ft9 hbo*, for ladles Isn't
16th. Th?'v MAU more ^hoes to the peo
ple of Kdgefield Coun'v than anv other
Shoo Ho uso in Augusta Isn't that PO?
17th. N. W. Murphey A Son aro better
known aa selling a good Shoe than any
other Shoe House in Augusta. Isn't
Ietil. If our gooda were not satisfatto/
ry to the people, then our trade wot/
fall off. Isn't that so?
19J]. Rut the many imitators
system, and the rapid growth \
trade, provea that our system "
one. Isn't that so?
201 h. And we know that i m i tau
tho sincerest tiattery. Ian't that so? '
Eveiy wearer of Shorn owes one big duty to himself, that is, either to
