My Charlie was the most un- e
romantic and matter-of-fact fellow t
that ever existed. He would
read an old almanac any time in o
preference to a volume of poems, b
and when I told him one day e
about the trials and sufferings of
that dear 'Claude Clonett,' in r
Stringemont's new novel, he coolly r
asked me, when I-had finished, if i
'C. C. took sugar or drank his
whisky straight.' Qb, my ! whaL a
a trouble he was to me, and I a
really do not know how I ever I
came to tolerate him. He R"ouldn't
act one bit like a hero, and when
he said 'good bye' at the gate, t
after spendhg the evening with I
me, he would walk straight away I
through the field whistling 'Yan- n
kree.Doodle,' and never turn and r
kiss his hand to me once-.
Then wben I flirted just a little
with a nipe fellow to make my
Charlie jealous, he never said one s
word, and I had expected he
would vow vengeance on the nice t
fellow, and threaten to take pros- t
sic acid himself.
No, there was no romance in I
Charlie Marsh. iIe drank two
cups of coffee for breakfaist, ate t
lots of pork and beans for dinner, I
and pourpd 49wn three cups of tea
for supper. H~is hair was always a
parted on the right side of his
ead, a moustache ne.ver graced t
his lip, apd bi g~oic instead of' b
being soft and low and sweet, wasa
loud and coarse like the sound of ~
a bass yoiu.
It will be proper to state, before ~
I go any furt.her, that Charlie was
ny promised busband ; and I r
tink he loved me, aitbough he
was unromantic. As I said before,
how I came to love him has al
ways been a profound mystery toa
me, for be was as different from
my ideal as night is from day;
gund when b-e proposed to me, infl
place of dropping on his knees y
and telling me that I was the ~
whole world to him and he could t
pever, never, never exist one mo- t
ment withoig mne for his gudn j
star, he just turned to mce one
evening, as we were sitting to
gether in the parlor-, and said, ast
coolly as you please : 'Sis'-tbat's
what he always called me-'you t
know I have been head over heels ~
in love with you for more than ,
two months -won't you be M.rs.
Marsh, and make a fellow happy ?' e
'Bead over heels in love' with ~
me iwbat anl prpression ! I was
really shocked and I never ought e
to have said 'ys/ but 1 took pity
on t.hp poor fellow, because I
thought he sincerely loved me,
and would become more sensible
in time. I do not think I would
ave loved him so well if Pa had
not detested aim. Pa did not like
him, because it was rumored that
his great grandfather sold pea
nuts on an old ferryboat; but I
never' beliced it. Fa~ at last for
bade him the house; but that
made me all the more anxious to
see my Charlie, and weo met
under the great maple trees. He,
of course, should have proposed
an elopement; but be was too
1mmtp-of.fact to ever think of it.; I
nd when 1 asked him what we
ad batter do under the circum- li
tances, he thought for a few mo
nents and said - ']
'I think I'll give your father a
:ood thrashing when I catch him nr
lt, and then he will think better g
f me.' a
'No, Mr. Marsh,' 1 replied,
'oull do no such thing. Just lay k
our finger on pa, and I'll never' g
peak to you again while I live.'
I said this in such a tragic man- cl
er that poor Charlie could do
othing but stand and look at me p
nd whistle. u
'What shall we do then ?' he Ic
'Why, if you are too dumb to w
bink, I will tell you,' I answered, I

asked in a low voice.r

'ONDERFUL LEAD VILLE.
irther Facts of Interest About the Famous
Silver City of Colorad;.
Colonel Elisha W. Davis, a
ember of the Pennsylvania leg
lature, said to a Philadelphia
'imes reporter, on returning from
trip to Leadville, Col.:
'Two years ago a little tumble
)wn shanty or two stood on the
t. now occupied by Leadville, a

less than a yard wide. My friend
stopped at its edge, and, after ap
pearing to measure it with his
eye, proceeded to direst himself
of his garments.
'What are you doing ?' I asked,
'Going to'swim across, ofcourse,'
was the reply. 'I've been fooled
enough on Leadville distfnces ;
but after this I'll try to make due
allowance im my calculations.'
'Take it all in all, the cost of
living in Leadville is no more
than in Philadelphia, while the
remuneration for labor is from
two to three times as large as it is
here. Beef is cheaper and better
there than here, The only sup
plies that command a higheri
price there are vegetables. Day
laborers earn from $2 to $4 a day ;
carpenters, $4; miners, from $4 to
$4.50, and other workmen in like
proportion. Any plucky man go
ing there with a little capital
ought to get rich if he minds his
business. The entire surround
ing country abounds in raineral
wealth, chiefly silver and iron.
The fact that lead is tound in
large quantities, combined with
these ores, gave the city its name.
Silver, however, is the most abun
dant, and, of course, the chief
treasure sought for. Antharacite
coal was recently struck, and
the supply promises to be very
grea,. Every trade and profes
sion flourishes. Undoubtedly Lead
ville will be tbe penter of the sil
ver mining business for the next
twenty-five yoars. It is now by
far the largest town in the State.
'The population is not so heter
ogenous as Philadelphians might
suppose. The majority of the
people are of American birth, re
cruited largely from New York
State and the oil regions of Penn
sylvania. New Yorkers are get
ting ;ol4 of aii t[ao big mines.
Several mines, including the Rob
ert E. Lee, Pittsburg cnd Cryso
lite, have been paying at the rate
of $100.000 a year for the last six
months. If Leadville has done 80
mnuch w ith no railroad nearer than
thbirty-two miles, what may be ex
pected when the road now run
ning from Denver to Buena Vista
will be finished as far as Lead
ville ? gdeed it is probable that
the D)enver and Rio Grande road
also will Boon be extended to
Leadville, opening up traffic along
the Arkansas river'. At present
passenger, travel and hauling
must be done by means of stages
and wagons between Leadville
and Buena Vista. There has been
no rob bipg qone, however, since
Judge Lynch hanged two fellows

as there are none nearer than the

MIGHTY SLOW ScHoyR.--Our
Northern brethreu are mighty slow
scholars. Every year or so one or
more of 'em come down to make a
reconnoissance, and they go back
and say we are all right-great
people-splendid people--have been
slandered awfully, and so forth, and
right straight -e hold up our heads
and wag our tails, just like a dog
when he gets a kind word front bia
master. Mr. Beecher come down,
and Dr. Vincent come dawn, and Gen
eral Grant come down, and General
Sberman and several others, and they
,o back and say: 'Boys, there's nc
harm in them fellers - down South ;
they are all right.' But bless. my
soul, nobody believes 'em, and we have
got to enlighten 'em one at a time,
just like we did Brother Talmage, and
it's going to take two or three thouw
sand years to do it.
Mr. Talmage says the North has
not done us juotice. Well, that's so;
bnt we want to know about what time
they will do it. There was a~ darkey
in the calaboose, and he aent for Judge
Underwood and told him what he was
