How Ben Purtle Got His Wife.
A WESTERN STORY.
The very climax of ugliness was
Ben Purtle. He was red haired.
and each hair stood as ifeIcerished
the supremest contempt for its
neighbor. His ice was freckled
as the most bespotted turkey egg.
His nose supported at the bridge
a lump, while the end t urned vici
ously to one side. His mouth had
every shape but a pretty shap .
His form was as uncouth as his
face was ugly. The very elimax
of upliness was Ben Puri,e. What
was more, still. Ben had a hand
sone, bouncing. looming wife
such as can only be grown upon
a country farm.
"How the deuce," said I to Ben.
one day, "'did you ever get sueh a
wife, you uncouth, missharnL .
quintessence of monstrosity.
Ben was not at all offended by
the impertinence of my question
and forthwith began to solve the
mystery thus :
'"Well, now, gals what's sensi
sible, ain't cotched by none of
your purty and hifalutin airs. I've
seen that tried more'n once. You
know Kate was allers considered
the purtiest gal in these parts.
and all the young fellers in the
naberhood used to try to cotch
her.-Well, I used to go over
to old Sammy's too, just to kinder
look on, you know, and e sh1ip
eves at Kate. But mc y as
I had no more thought that I
could get Kate than a Jerusalem
cricket could hide in the hair that
wasn't on oM Sammy's bald head
--no sirea. But still, .I couldn't
help going, and my heart would
kinder flutter, and my eyes would
burn all over, when I'd go to walk
with Kate. And 'one day when
Kate sorter made fun of me like.
it almost killed me, sure.; I went
home with something.like a rock
jostling about in my breast, and
declared I'd hang myself with the
first plow line I found.
"Did you hang yourself ?'
No ; daddy blazed out to me f'or
takin' old Ball to the paster in the
morning, and scared me so that I
"Go on," said 1, seeing Ben pause
with apparent regret that he had
not executed his vow.
"Well, soon on Sunday morning
-I reckon it wals a year after that
langing scrape-I got up and
scraped my face with daddy's old
razor, and put on my new copper
as britches, and a new linsey coat
mammv had dyed with sassafras
bark, and went over to uncle Sam
my's. Now, I'd got to loving Kate
like all creation, but I never cheaped
to any one about my feelings. But
I knowed I was on the right side
of the old folks."
"Well, now, ain't it quecr.", con
tinued Ben, "how a fellow will
feel sometimes ? When I got there
and seed Kate with her new homps
pun frock on, I railly thought I'd
-take the blind staggers, anyhow."
Ben paused again to brush the
fog from, his eyelids, and then con
"WeIl,I found the order of the day
was to go mustadine huntinhg. J-oe
Shap and hi-s two sisters, and Jim
Bowls was thar. I'd knowed a
long time that Shap was rite after
Kate, and I hated him worse than
a hog hates to find a road out of a
'tater patch ; but I didn'it let on.
Shap had on white britches and
fine shoes and broadelot h overceoat,
but everybody knowed he wasn't
worth a red cent- Hie walked with
Kate, and you ought to have seen~
the airs he put on. It was Gliss
Kate this. and Miss Kate that,'
and all suceh nnsece. After
awhile we came near a slnvugh we
had to cross on a log, and I'd a
notion to pitch the sassy good for
nothing into the water."
"Why didn't you !" I asked.
"Stop, never mind," said Ben,
giving a nludge. "Providence done
all that up brown. iNothing must
do but Joe Shap must lead Miss
Kate across fust. Hie jumped
on the log in Ligh glee, ahd took
Kate's hand, and they put off
Just as they got half way acr-oss,
a tarnation big bull frog jumped
off into the water-you know how
they holler-'Snakes !' screamed
the foch and knocked Kate off to
jump and had Kate out of thar in
no time. And dy'e think the scamp
didn't come up after we'd got out.
and said Are you hurt, Miss
Kate ?' "
"My dander was up. I couldii't
stand it-I catched him by the
seat of his white britches and coat
collar, and gin him a toss. MIaybe
he didn't go clear under when he
hit the water. I didn't see him
out. Me and Kate put for the
Iouse. When we started ot" Kate
"Den, let me 1old to your arm,
I kinder feel sortar weak."
"Great Jiminy ! I felt so quar
when she took hold. I tried to
say something nice, but my (rot

But .1 felt as strong as an elephaint.
and helped Kate along. By aiid
hv. Kate said
"Den, that Joe Shap's a good for
if he ever puts his head inside of
our house again, I'll souse him
with the dish water, sure."
"I tried to say something again,
but hang the luck. I could, say no
thin', but squeezed Kate's hand.,
and sighed like a cranky bellus.
We'd got clean out of sight of
the others. Kate says:
"Ben I feel that you are my
protector, and I believe daddy's
right when he says you're worth
all the rest of the boys in the na
"Ben Purtle," savs,I, "this is a
great day for you, and I made a
tremendous effort to get my mouth
off again and out it popped sure
'Kate," says I, tremrbling all
over, "1 love you to distraction,
andl no mistake. I've loved you
long and hard. My heart's been
almost broken for year's, and I
want y.m to say right straight up
and down, whether you're going
to have me or not ?"
Kate hung down her head and
didn't say nothing but I felt encou
raged, for she kinder sighed. Says
I, "Kate, of you're a gwine to have
me, say so, and ef you don't want
to say so, just squeeze my hand."
Well, she squeezed my hand,
right off. Lordy how I did feel.
I felt like a stream of warm water.
or sassafras tea, sweetened with
molasses, was running through
my bones !-and I just cotched
her in my arms and kissed her
andl she never tried the first time
to get loose.
*Ben was so 'overcome with this
narration of courtship, that a pause
for breath was-necessary.
"How long after' that," said I,
"before von were married."
"Old Sammy was mighty proud,
and so was the old1 'oman, about
the thing, and we got married
next fall after the muscadine
"Do you think your wife .lovesh
vou ?" I asked.
"Why, lordy, yes. She t hinks
i'm the purtiest and best feller in
the world. I tell you, sir, it's no
use talking ; hifatin airs, and
quality dressing, and cologne, and
such things, ain't gwine to go down
with.sensible gals, sure."
L~osr ED1Ton.-Our editor is
lost !-he is gone-went off several
days ago for JTefferson. We have
consulted the Jimpieente and the
Marshall papers (they ouight to
know every thing') but not a word
do we see about the whereabouts
of our ediitor. We heard once
that he went to marryx a couple
somewvhere, and forgot his mar
riage ceremony, and had started.
in search of that; then we heard
that he hiad g'ot drowned in Suh
phur'. but uiponi reflect ion we knew
that was not so, for Sulphur is3 as
dry as a powder-horn. anid besides
that, our editor is an immersionist
and takes to water like a duck;
and we know he could not drown.
Now, if any of our con freers find
him, please persuade him to come
back home-for the devil is really
turned loose in our office and we
annot manage him; he needs the
pious admonitions of our editor
it acts like a charm, and1 makes a
:ecent devil of him. If you do
not see our editor, if you hear of
him, please write him a letter, and
tell him we are not all well, and
we are pretty near out of wood
and soap, and he must come home
soon. 'Wondler if the Jimplecute

Two full sessions of Lectures each year,
commencing the first of October, and con,
tinuing until April. The Disseeing Rooms
are open, and private ;ectures and quizzes
continue dnring the entire year. The tirst
session continues until Christmas, or for
three mo !hs, aud the second until the first
of April, or three nionth,; the two constitu,
ing one full course of lectures. Examintation
of candidates for giaduation will occur at the
end of each session.
REQUISITES FOR GRADUATION.-The re,
quisites for graduation are three sessions of
lectures, ard three ye:rs study; or four ses
sions, including two years spent at the
Univti t1 y.
TinE SYSTEM OF MEDICINE TAUGHT.
The University is a liberal medical school, in
which all branches of medicine and surgery
are taught, including the preparatory studies,
without regard to any sectarian views.
Hence, while they deprecate the exclusive
ness of Allopathy,Homeopathy, Eclecticism,
Hydropathy, ete.,-they believe that all pi in
ciples of cure and therapeutical agents should
be taught in all well-regulated medical
schools, and that every intelligent, honest,
and thorough practitioner is entitled to all
the courtesies and privileges of the profes
sion, without regard to his pera iar notions
FEES .-The fees for a libranell.s,including
all the tickets, matriculation, and dissection,
are $60 a session, or $120 per year. Those
who purchase tickets only have to matricu
late once, which makes the second session
$55, including demonstrator's fees, or $115
for a full course. To aid young men of
moderate means, the University has issued
five hundred sebolarships, which are sold to
first-couie students, for $75. and to.sccond,
course students and clergymen for 850, each
constituting the holder a life member, with
the perpetual privileges of the lectures, and
all the teachings of the school. The o lv
additional fees are a yearly dissecting and
matriculating ticket, each oi wh:i is S!.
THE ADVANTAGES OF SCHOLATSIs.
The student hvlding a sencGarship can enter
the Collg at any time during the year,
attend as Iong as he chooses,an.l re enter the
Institution as frequenrly as desired.
It requires no previous reading or study to
en;ter the Universi:y on scholarships, hence
all private tuition fees are saved.
Students, by holding scholars.hips, can
prosecute other business a part of the time.
The 'candidate for graduation can present
himself a: any time, and receive his degree
as soon as qualified.
In case a student should hold a scholars I
ship and not be' able to attend lectures, it
can be transferred to another, thus prevents
ing any loss.
Parents, guardians or filends of studentsI
wish ing to purchsse scholarsbips for them, a
year or more before their attendance at the
University, can secure them by advancing
one-half the'price, and paying the balance
when the'student a.n1ers. -Physicians and
benevolent -men can bestow great benefit
upon poor young men, by presenting them
a scholarship, and thus enabling them to
obtain an honorable profession.
