of the stable. Here 3he was, for
some time, tit a loss to determine
which of thai;/half-dozen horses it
:-. contained had borne her thus far
on her jourti?y ; a?id it was equally
hard to find, in the dark, the bridle

Bat all these diffcultiea were at
length .surrciounted^rg^ she led
forth the obedient animal. Making
as wide a.ciit?u?lr from the house
as possible, Emily succeeded in
gaining tho road without awaken
ing any one. Up to this time, the
doghad kept closely by her side ;
.hut, when she mounted the horse
and moved away, he stood looking
at her until she passed out of
sight, and then returned to his
?post at j??;farm-hou?e.
Th* danger, she had left behind,
made Emily almost insensible to
the loneliness ,->f,htr situation;
and the joy she felt at her escape
scarcely left room for fear ^n her
heart. D<ay had hardly begun to
break, when she reached the jiouse
of an old friend of her father's,
where she bad intended to pass
the night. To him she confided
the nature of her journey, and
told of the narrow escape she had
made. A hasty meal was provided
for her, and ere the sun passed
above the horizon, mounted ona
stroug and fresh horse,, she was
sweeping away on ber journey.
A letter from this friend to a
staunch whig,, residing" twenty
m iles distant^procured her another

with her. cthe. soldiers reined up ^
their horses and addressed her j
with rude familiarity. She made
po reply but endeavored to pass
on when one of them laid hold of
her bridle. Escape being hopeless
Emily answerd the question asked
of her i u such a way as she deemed
prudent. Not satisfied -with the
account she gave of herself they
told her that. Lord Rawdon was
encamped' about a mile distant,
and that she must go before himv
as it was plain she was a rebel,
and most prc bab!y a spy.
On .beinjf brought into the
presence of the British officer.
Emily was interrogated closely as
to where ishe had come from
whither she was going, and the
nature of her errand. She would
not utter* direct falsehood, and
her answers being evasive only
created stronger suspicions
against her in the mind of Lord
"We'll find a way to the truth !"
he at length exclaimedrimpatiently
after trying in vain to get some
'satisfactory statement from the
firm-hearted girl who did not
once lose her presence of mind
during the trying interview.
'/Take'her over to my quarters at
the farm-house, and see that she
don't escape yon.
The officer, to whom this com
mand was given,. removed Emily
under a guard, to a house near
at hand, and locked her in one of
thc rooms. The moment she was
alone, she took from her pocket
a pair of scissors, and hurriedly
ripping open a part of her dress,
took therefor m a small price of
paper, folded and sealed. .This was
the despatch she was bearing tb
General Sumter. To crumble it in
her hand and throw it from the
window, was ber first impulse;
but Ber ear caught the sound of
a sentinel's tread, and that idea
was abandoned. Hurriodly glanc
ing around in the dim twilight,
she sought, in vain, for some mode
pf hiding the despatch, which ii
found upon her, betrayed every
thing. That her person would tk
searched she had good reason tc
believe; and, in all probability,
every part of the room would b<
searched also. To hesitate long
would be to make discovery ?ure
V Every moment she expected somi
one to eritef. While she stoo<
irresolute, a thought glancec
through her mind, and acting up
on it instantly, she lore oS a pari
of the despatch, and thrusting il
into her mouth, chewed aud wal?
lowed it. Another and anothei
piece .disappeared *in the same
way; but er? the whole was des
troyed,' the door opened, and a
woman entera}. Turning her
back quickly, Emily crowded all
that remained of the paper in her
mouth, and covering her face
tightly "withjier hands, held them
there, as if weeping, until the
last particle of the tell-tale des
patch had disappeared. Then
turning to the woman who, had
addressed her repeatedly, she said
in a cairn voice
l4By what authority am I de

"By .the authority of Lord]

a severe tone.

The search, of course elicited
lothing that could fix upon her
the suspicion of being a messen
ger from the rebel army.
"Are you satisfied?" ?inquired
Emily, as she rearranged her dress
after the ordeal had been passed.
She spoke with the contempt she
felt. The woman made no reply,
but went out in silence with her
the jlight she bad brought into the
room, and leaving Emily ' alone
and in darkness. For nearly
half an hour, the latter sat
awaiting her return; but during
that period no one approached
her room nor was there any
movement about the house that
she could interpret as having re
ference to herself. At last the
heavy tread of a man was heard
ascending the stairs ; a key was
applied to the door of her room
and a soldier appeared. Just
behind him stood a girl with a'
light in her hand.
"Lord Rawdon wishes to see
you" said the soldier.
Emily followed him in silence.
In a large room below, seated at
a table with several officers, was
Lord Rawdon. Emily wasbrought
before him. After asking her a
variety of questions all of which
the girl managed to answer so as
not to violate the truth, and yet
allay suspicion, he said to her
As the night has fallen, you will
not of course, think of preceding
on your journey."
Emily reflected for some time
before answering. She then said
"If your majesty do not object,
I would like to go back a ?hort
distance. I have friends living on
the road nor far from your camp."
How tar; iuquired Lord
"About six miles from her."
Very well you shall go back ; and
I will send ari escort for youl
Emily had made up her mind
to return a fen miles on the way
the had come, and then taking s
wide sweep around the camp
pro'ected from observation by th?
darkness, resume her journey auc
endeavor to reach the place when
she intended to find General Sum
ter, bj the middle of the next
day. She had gained fresh courage
\ with every new dihlc?lty that
presented itself,' and now she
resolved to accomplish her errand
afc all hazard. What she most
dreaded was the pursuit of the
man Mink, from whom she had
escaped, and who, she doubted
no$, was at -no great" "distance from
the camp. To decline the escort,
she felt might renew suspicion
while it would "not prevent Lord
Rawdon from sending mefc to
accompany her. So she thanked
him for the offer, and asked Nto be
permitted to gp without further
delay. Th? was granted and in
and hour aftirwird; Emily found
herself safely in the house of ?
friend of her father, and the good
cause of the country. . She' had
' passed this house late in the after
noon, but .was sb 'eager to go
forward^ and gain a certain point
in her journey that night, that
she did not stop. Fortunately her
escort had left her before she met
any of th? ?*amily or the surprise
expressed at her appearance
might have created some, new
doubts iu the mincTof th? sergeant
who accompanied the guard.
About half an hour *" after her
arrival and while she was urging
the necessity of . her departure
immediately, and endeavoring to
pass the British army, a member

The Dispensary System in
BY REV. W. P. LOVEJOY, D. D.
By the iequeBt of the editor, _
ive prepared the following paper
i the working of the "Dispensary
'stem" inlhig city. I bav^seaich
the records of police courts, con
1 ted the chiefs of police, obtain
the opinions of leading citizens
th for and against. the present
m, aiid in this way have secured
I jue information touching this
estion at my command.
The following tabulated state
mt, taken from the records of
- police court, is given first. It
II be explained further on :
S ? Kg
? !.. 'fl
._ ?1 UiXilS oar rOOm8.
om 1885 to October 1; 1891, was
. reign of prohibition. From Octo
r 1,1891, to the present date the
iperisary system has been 4n
eration. The figures given, in
5 above table do not show all
3 results. The number, of ar
ris, made during the prohibition
riod was considerably less, ex
pt' during, the last two years,
an under the reign of bar-rooms.
ie difference in the amount!.re
ived from fines for different
ars is attributable to several
uses. At one time a man would
i in office who imposed small
?es. At another time the officer
>u?d impose heavy noes. Some
?ars the officers were diligent in
rreting out "blind tigers." These
?nally paid a fine of not less than
500. Take the y tar 1890 as an
lustration.. The amount collected
om fines that year was $4;8$4.95.
he Chief of Police informs me
lat. private detectives were em
loved that year to run down
blind tigers," and fully three
)urth8 of ithis amount wasobtain
I from that source. It will be
oticed also that during the last
e?i (1890) of the prohibition
eriod the number of arrests in
reased fifty per cent, over the pje
ioue year. This was owing to
he lack of vigilance in prosecuting
iolators of the prohibition law.
Ls a consequence "blind tigers"
ou?tiplied at a rapid rate, and ar
ests for drunkenness increased in
he same ratio.
The figures above reveal a state
?f things, the correctness of which,
without explanation, one familiar
vith police courts would be dis
used to .question, and for ^good
eason. I refer particularly to the
imall pet cent, of arreste "traoea
:le to liquor" aB compared Mfith
:he whole number of arrests. The
3hief of Police informs me that a
nan arrested under the influence
5f whiskey is not docketed undejr
the head of "traceable to liquorV
unless, in addition to being drunk,
he is using profane or obscene lan
guage. He states that fully three?
fourths of all arrests ?re traceable
to liquor. As an illustration, on
a Fourth of July, a few years ago,
he made 170 arrests-all drinking.
By consulting the table above it
will bc seen that in but two years
were there more than 170 arrests
"traceable to liquor." Since the
beginning of 1891 no record bas
been, kept of arrests "traceable .to
It j will be necessary to state some
features.of the Statute creating the
dispensary plan before the^work
ing of tue system can be fully un
ders|ood. That Statute provides :
1; TJhat the Mayor and Council of
the city of Athens shall elect three
Commissioners, who shall have
general oversight of the dispensary.
- 2., These Commissioners shall
elect a manager, who shall give
bond in a sum not less than $2,000.
3. The manager shall receive a

ws^yinous and malt liquors as the
O^nj^issionerB shall direct.

3 sold to any person for the pur
086 of selling again.
15. The manager shall not al
>w any person to loiter in or
bout the dispensary or the pre
lises when it is established.
These are the salient points in
ne dispensary system as it is
p?rated in Athens. It has been
anning since Oct. 1,1891. What
re the results?
In the above tabulated state
ient.it will be seen that, as com
iared with the latter years of
irohibition, there is practically
io advantage in favor of the pre
?nt system. The Mayor stated to
?e (the ex-Chief of Police corrob
srate?jhe statement) that there is
nore drinking, under the dis
leneary system than there was
luring the reign of prohibition,
>ut there is less crime. Both give
LS the cause this : The liquor ob
tained now is purchased at the
iispensary, and it is pure. Under
prohibition the worst classes ran
the "blind tigers "in the darkest
corners, and sold the meanest
whiskey; the worst classes fre.
?[uented those places, and the
result was much drinking, many
difficulties and many arrests. As
compared with the bar-room reign,
the Chief of Police stated that
under prohibition there was a
decrease of nine-tenths of disorder
and the order is good now as it
was. under prohibition. He is a

Measles Store Fatal Tb an Influenza.
The mortality from measles exceed?,
anything that can thus far be d i r ec tl y
attributed to influenza. It appears that
over 18,000 deaths from measles occur
annually in England and Wales, and th?
rate of mortality has greatly increased
during the last decade. Why do we
take no account of it? Because, I sup
pose, measles is most fatal to infants,
whereas influenza chiefly carries off thc
aged. We all of us expect to grow old,
but we can none of us hope to be young
again. Yet the life of a healthy infanl
is of more value than that of a sexage
narian who has not strength to combat
the influenza microbe.-London Truth.
