THE JIBGrTS BUGHTER.
My story seems branded into my mem
ory in letters ot tire, it is no story con
jured up by my imagination, nor yet one
thttt needs lossing over by a fertile pen.
All tbe incidents are real none arc ex
aggerated. Xot many years ago, a haughty man,
a judge of incorruptible character, died,
leaving behind him two children.
After his death it was louud that he
had not been so wealtiiy as many had
supposed, yet rich enough to leave each
daughter a" moderate competence.
To the eldest daughter descended the
homestead and a sufficient income to
keep some of their former style; the
ed in an old, trusty bank.
From intaucy, r.stelle had been ac
quainted with a poor but proud-spirited
dov. one iiu.u vt.uciieu ins intellectual
struggle lor an education such as lie de
sired, admiring his unconquerable am
bition, anil as lie ncarcu man noon ne oc
eanic her most ardent admirer.
But the iudc demurred. .No daughter
of his Should encourage a penniless
vnnth their mtimacv must cease. Obe
dient as a child, sfic listened to her
fathers commands and obeyed him im
plicitly. He surrounded her with gay company;
he did everything that wealth or taste
could suggest to win her away from her
boy lover. But though she uttered no
complaint, he knew that she did not for
get. At last he died. He did not bind her
with any promises. Perhaps, in death,
he discovered that it needs more than
wealth to bring happines.
After her bereavement, Iiupcrt Kings
land came to her again.
" Estelle, my love," he said, passion
ately, " it may be wrongs to you for me
to come to you now he is gone, when 1
know how much he was opposed to me,
but, darling, you arc in iroubleand 1
must comfort" vou."
Shedidnotl-hidchim. She believed
her father must have relented, or else
he -would have spoken and forbidden her
to receive him after his death. She
went and sobbed on his bosom like a
'JKapert," she said, "if yon had for
saken me now, I should indeed' be deso
late." "And to leave too ever -will, kill me."
ho ejaculated, impetuously. " Cane mv
fortune, that I must forever be debarred
from vou!" -"
" Don't speak so fiercely, Rupert. No
one stands between us now."
" Yes, poverty stands between us as
it ever did," he replied. " Never will I
take advantage ot his decease to step
unworthily where he forbade me. If I
ever could obtain my wish of becoming
a great and famous physician. Estelle,
then I would be proud to come and sec
" Where would you go to become a
doctor 1" she replied.
"I would study in England, France
and Germany," was the eager response.
"To be a common-place physician
would not satisfy me. I must be the
equal of the most eminent.
For a momest she was silent.
"Eupert," she observed, presently,
" the -way is open to you. My money is
left untouched. In no way would its
use give me as much joy as to know that

11 was atuiiig vuu w uuiain ;uui lues
desire." You shall go to England, France
and Germany. Only return to me as
pure as you leave me."
For some time he opposed such a sug

ness to receive becamo her eagerness to

some future time. He would Bend to

Her sister was very much opposed to
it, when informed of what Estelle pro
posed to do.
"You arc very unwise, Estelle," she
said, angrily, " to draw jour capital to
give to him. I doubt his goodness. I
doubt his ever returning."
Estelle was wounded but not discour
aged. She made him a present of a very
handsome gold watch and chain, and
money enough to defray all expenses in
cidental to his journey and first admit
tance to a medical school. Then he w-as

His first two j-cars were spent in Eng

She perused that part of his letter,
two years more ! Two years of long
She let not even a sigh escape her lips.
Her trust in him was implicit.
There is a passage in Holv 'Writ which
says : "There is no fear in love, but per
fect love easteth out fear because fear
hath torment. He that feareth is not
made perfect in earthly love." She knew
no fear! It would be hard for him to
be away two years longer, but if he de
sired it, she should not complain.
She had already lent him, so yreat
had been his extravagance, every penny
of her principal.
She took up her pen and wrote :
".Rupert, God alone knows how much
I long for vou each day, but if vou wish
to remain away two years more, do not
let me deter vou. ou know that fatli

as was anticipated, and now all is gone
but the homestead. If vou think the
two years neccsarv, I will mortgage it.
He did not think two more years re
quisite, but he wrote so totiehingly
about hersacritice, that it seemed almost
as if he was conferring a favor on her
by taking it, than her on him by giving.
It was mortgaged. Everv dollar she
realized was sent to htm. ller own ser

alone. What was she to do ?
She could not appeal to her sister;
.she remembered the taunts that her sif

as governess in a wealthy family, one o'.
her old friends. Public indignation be

could not deny herself that she had fail

Accompanying it was a paper contain

She was full of peace and joy ; he was

She saw hit. name among the arrivals ;

" I have seen your friend, Dr. Kings
land, in the city," he said. " Ho asked
me to inform you that he had been de

The announcement took one nnnc
from her heart only to add another. He
was well she thanked God for that,
but could she have been within twenty
miles of him for a week without sending
him some message ?
That was all the reproach she allowed
her gentle heart to make, while she
formed a thousand excuses for his cruel
Two weeks went past, and they num
bered three. Then a note caniej which
commenced as follows:
"My dear friend, I feel as if I can say
to you through a note, that which I wisn
to say, better than face to face. Estelle,
you have been mj good Samaritan, and
I am sure you will rejoice at 1113- happi
ness. I was married, last night, to a
Miss Morse. You remember her. A
young lad of woalth, beauty and good
position in society."
She read no more. Some one in the
adjoining room heard a heavy fall, and
rushed in. They found her on the floor
apparently dead. They picked her up
and sent for a physician.
"A severe shock," was his conclusion.
"She is dying of the heart disease."
She became sensible again, but her
heart was utterly broken. Seven years
of waiting, and then tho false-hearted
lover hud left her left her, after squan
dering her property, to die in misery.
Even then sho uttered no complaint.
She had all his letters, little keepsakes,
and every triflo pertaining to him
brought to her. She bound them up
and addressed them to him.
"Alter I am gone send them to him,"
A week later, they laid her away and
fulfilled her request.
iiupcrt Kingslaud began to practice
early, and his success was wonderful,
despite the notoriety which his false
heart Ui.d brought upon him.
On the first day after ho camo from

and bring him up with him.
"See if I don't win niin from that

before he met her.
His tickle heart easily proved recreant
to every vow of love, every tie of honor.
Two years after, sho wa about lo go

a loud shriek, and fell forward to the

Whether it was merely a delusion of
her guilty conscience or not, we can
never know. Any way, tho fall lrac
tured her spine, and until this day she
is a miserable, repining, cross, failed in

moment. And she is a conscience
stricken wretch, enduring all the pangs
of earthly purgatory.
Verily) my friend is being avenged!
It is God's just retribution.
The Advertis.no Swindler. The Chi

"Swindling," has this to say concerning
the advertising swindler: "He coaxes
the unwary merchant into giving nun
his ad' for a spurious dodge. He i
roiii" to have a fabulous number of ho
tel registers manufactured, or a lot of
directories made to be hung in rural
postofh'ees and railway depots, or is
about to issue an advertising sheet for
'gratuitous distribution,' devoted to the
Lord knows what; or i- a painter, and
Iicing about to sally forth to liedaub the
rocks and hills of'a beautiful land with
his impudentannouncenienis, he weedle
the tradesman into letting his name be
associated with this vilcn of advertising
swindles. Or he is going to ornament
telegraph poles in the same manner; or
to r?g tin a vehicle, containing notices,
to bo driven about the streets; or has
frames for your cards in divers public
j I ices ; or, in short, wishes to defrand
by some specious gamo the advcrticr
out of his hard-earned money. He has
a thousand or more methods of perpe
trating his frauds, from projiosals lo dis
figure street Iampy and loan I fences, to
painting your announcement on the
front oi" a country pulpit. But the bais
of all his propositions is arrant cheat

blessed boons vouehrfed to the com
mercial world ; but the columns of a
ncwspajier are the onlv medium through
which the desired end for the advertiser
can be obtained.

QJ OfWB'wOvsaT VW 1001.
Called Her a kVaiica.
A week or two ago one of our rctiort-
ers had occasion to refer lo a certain
woman, whom we will" rail Hannah
Smith, as a denizen of the Elerenth
Ward. A day or two afterward a huge
man entcr-'d the office with hii brow
rclothcd with thunder, in his hand he
carried a fetrful club, and at his side
trotted a bull-dog, whom hunger had
evidently made desperate. With that
quick appreciation oi the situation which
is creditable to the superior intelligence
of educated men, the editor of thip.iper
and tho proprietors darted to tho wii.
dow, climbed-soutside, slid down th
lightning rod, and went across the street
to watch tho bloody atrray through a
spy-glass. With the fearlessness of con
scious innocence we sat still, merely in
serting our legs in two sections of stove
pipe to guard against any misapprehen
sion of tacts on the part of the bull-dog.
The man w ith the club approached :
"Arc you the editor?" he asked, spit
ting on his hand and grasping his club.
We told him that the editor was out ;
that he had gone to the north polo with
Captain Hall, and that he would not re
turn before 187G, in time for the centen
" Are you the proprietor? " asked the
We explained to him that we were
not; that the proprietors were also out;
that they had gone to South America
for the purpose of investigating tho cur
ative properties of cundcrango, anil hail
expected to remain there for several
"Well, whoever yoii are," exclaimed
the warrior, " my name is .Smith ! "
Wo told him wc were glad ; because
if there was one thing better than the
losscssiou of the name of Smith, it was
te privilege of knowing a nun of that
"But, Smith," we said, "why this
battle array ? It is absurd for a man to
put 011 the panoply of war, mid' frisk
into editors' sanctums fumbling a club
and accompanied by a disheartening
bull-dog, simply because his name haji
pens to lie Smith."
Ho said he called in to burst the
head of the man who had insulted
"It is impossible, Smith, that such a
thing could have been done by any one
in this ollice."
"But it wa, though; and her name
was published, too! Miss Smith Miss
Hanncr Smith ! "
"May we permitted to inquire, Jlr.
Smith, what was the precise character
of tho affront oflert-d to Hunnah ?"
"Well, you see," said Smith, "the
blackguard said sho was a denizen.
And I want yon to understand," ex
claimed Smith, becoming excited, and
brandishing his club in a wild manner
over hit head, while the bull-dog ad
vanced and commenced to sniff up and
down our stove-pipe "1 want you to
understand that she is a decent young
woman, with a good character, and none
of your denizens and such truck. The
man who says she is a denizen is a
blackguard and thief, and I'll smash him
over the wise if I get a chant c. They
may say what they please about me, but
the man who abuses my sister has gut
to suffer." And Smith struck the table
in a violent manner with bis club, while
the bull-dog put his fore-legs up on the
back of our chair.
Wc pacified Smith with a dictionary.
We pointed out to that raging warrior
that the Wcbstcriati definition of the
word "denizen " gives such a person a:
unofTemling character, and deprives the
term of everything like reproach. Smith
said he was satisfied, and he shook
hands and kicked the bull-dog down
stairs. The editor and proprietors', see
ing that all was safe, immediately climb
cd the lightning-rod and soon appeared
at the window, where they were intro
duced to Smith, with the remark that
they had returned from the North Pole
ami the clime of the cundcrango some
what unexpectedly, in order to siiqirie
And noxv wc suppose Smith will be
mad because wc have told this story
about him, and he will be coming down
to interview us again, in war's magnifi
cent stern array, with a freh hull-dog.
But it will be in vain. We have rented
an office in the top of the shot-tower,
and have planted torpedoes and spring
guns all the way up the stairs. We
warn this incendiary Smith to licware.

Bob Carson, one of the heroes 6fj
the plains, was out with twelve men in
search ot Indians who had stolen horses.
The second day out they struck tho trail;
late in the evening they saw in the dis
tauce a largo party of ImliaiU, and as
they were on friendly terms with the
different tribes, Car-011 and his band
hurrieJ to' meet them, hoping to gain in
formation concerning tho stock.
The Indians saw them approaching,
and halted for them to come up. As
Carson and his men came up, his keen
eye discovered that they were on th
war-path, but knowing no tear he rode
up, and the Indians, 400 strong, closed
wing- and completely surrounded them.
Saudiview, the chief, rode uji to Carson,
" Yeds tcdoly," meaning, "you aromy
Carson, after questioning the chief a
short time, found that they were in pur
suit of lost stock, stolen, as they thought,
by the U. S. troops.
The Mexicans had told them this to
screen themselves. But all of his repre
sentations could not iudtice Saudiview
to release him and his twelve men.
Tho next morning the old chief com
menced making preparations to shoot
and scalp his prisoners. Carson called
him aside for a talk, and finally per
suaded him to send one of his best run
ners to Captain Price's camp, and it
things were not as represented, that on
the fourth day after the departure of
said runner, at 1- o'clock, he might do
with his prisoners as he pleased. The
runner started. Carson and his men
were sanguine that everything would
prove satisfactory to the chief, and re
mained their prisoners, cheerful and
On" the morning of the fourth day, all
were momentarily exacting the return
of the runner. Ten o'clock mine and no
runner in sight. Eleven and no runner
in sight. Everything in camp was ex
citement and commotion. .Saudiview
was certain that his runner had been
foully dealt with, and in his auger made
preparations for summary vengeance.
At twelve o'clock no runner was in sight
as far as the eye could reach.
Carson thought hi hour hud come, as
preparations wero made; and well know
ing the terms would be complied with,
he called Saudiview and said be would
liko to have a talk with him before he
and his men were shot. Carson and
Saudiview loinuieuced their talk, Car
son, in the meanwhile, walking leisurely
from the camp, telling the chief tint the
horses, saddluk, blauUsta, JLc, went sdl
donated or willed to him, tho great
chief, and that he was not i-omjielled, on
account of hii donation, to divide wifh
The chief was much interested and
pleased with this donation, and by thit
time they were eighty or a hundred
yard- from the Indian camp, when Car-
sou, with the de.Meritv 01 tin old moun
taineer, pulled from his boot leg an ugly
looking holster pistol, cocked and pre
sented it directly in the fate ol the chief,!
"Stand, sir! you arc my prisoner."
" What do you mean ? " aked Sandi
" I mean just what I say. If you move
one inch you are a dead man."
The India. 15, seeing their chief in
danger, started towards him, but Carson
told him to motion them back. Cnroti
then told him to order up his twelve men
and their horses just ai ho had received
them, and Leo with them. This wo in
stantly complied with.
Carson then mounted the old chief
behind one of his men, and started for
Captain Price's camp, where Saudiview
found things uh represented by Caroii.
The runner had been there, hut had lost
the trail, which had caused the delay.
Captain Price gave the chiefs many pre,
cuts, and c-corted him bark to his trilic.
He afterwards wa a true friend of the
