LADY JUDITH'S VENGEANCE.
A sin sic clddv woman can do muc h to
act all the mhabitanu of a peaceful loam
by the ears.
Until pretty Mis. Triptow ami ber hus
band came to spend Uicir winter season at
B , in Derbyshire, that watenng-place
was one oi uie coziest towns come, it so
baDPencd that its permanent residents and
the temporary visitors who had come to
recruit their healths sot on well together.
Between them they formed a society of
cheerful people, who clubbea their re
sources to make the time pass pleasantly,
and who made no attempts to outshine one
another in the matter of over dreaming
and giving costly entertainments, ut
course there were one or two gossiping
ladies in the place, who would nave dis
turbed the general harmony It they could
thus Miss BickeL, a lean-visaged spinster
with an annuity, was very fond of prying
into her neighbor's affairs and whispering
malevolent insinuations, protesting all the
while that she had "not a particle of be
lief" in the rumor she circulated: and
Mrs. Boundy, again, a plump, laughing
widow, past forty, who was much less
good-natured than she looked, delighted
in the rough sort of tittle-tattle which
brushes the gloss off people's fair nsmcs.
But these lauies had louud the influences
of B too strong for them. Local soci
ety was ruled by Lady Judith Sbarpman,
wife of the colonel, a tall, middle-aged,
masculine lady, who. by reason ot a mus
tache seemed "fierce, but wjio at heart was
even more good-natured than Mrs. Boundy
looked. As a peer's daughter. Lady
Judith was accepted as an infallible arbi
trator of right and wrong, and she invaria
bly set her face against malice. She was
so indulgent and yet so firmly sensible, so
uprignt ana yet sucn a gentle peace
maker, that everybody liked her, and list
ened to her counsels, even when they were
not palatable. Then Ladv Judith was a
gresA'axrauier of iuarrlagcs. II "was sue

with pretty Hose Fauncing, whom Mrs.

girl of no family; and had further smoothed

Meeking. the vicar, from getting be
trothed U handsome Laura Cheverill, the
general1 daughter. These things were
known, appreciated, and extolled In B ,
and the young people of the colony felt
hanoier from the knowledge that in Ladv-
Judith they had a Providence who would
always assist the course of true love. '
Everything suddenly changed, however,
when Captain and Mr. Tnptow, above
mentioned, arrived in B .and began to
show off in the highest style-, . as if they
wanted all the world to know that the cap
tain had lately come in for a handsome
icsacv. To be burc. it was not Captain
Tnptow who showed off so much as his
wife, lie was a quiet, gentlemanlike lei
low, who. if left to go his own ways, would
have beeu popular anywhere, but he stood
in awe or his wife, anu uau no power eilli
er V control her or to insist upon his own
liberty of action when she urged him to do
foolish things. And bhe was always thus
wring him. It was soon ascertained that
Captain Triptow had served in a crack cav
alry regiment, and had contracted a sort of
mesalliance with the poor niece of a broth
er officer. Mrs. Triptow had been the belie
of Malta for one year, and of Bombay for
another, and she had got the reputation (as
Miss men le anu .Miss Bounuy avouciieu)
of being a fast flirt; bat as her husband
and she were of undeniable good families,
thev were hospitably received at B
The captain was admitted to the club, and
Mrs. Triptow was inviud to one of Lady
Judith's evening parties, her ladyship tak
ing car to tell ber that it would be quite
an informal affair, and that she need not
dress. Mrs. Triptow disregarded this no
tification, and came attired as though for
a court ball, making all the ladies and
girls present feel depressed by the plain
nmi of lhi-ir own attire. She had already
exhibited herself on tbe public promenade
of B in a series wf morning costumes.
which had made the local milliners run
gaping to their doorways, and now the
dress in which . she appeared at Lady
Judith's was one of those marvels of art
which could have only have issued from
Paris. Lady Judith was wry amiable
about the matter, and rendered full justice
to the great beauty of her guest, "whose
piquant smile anu vivacious prattle" (said
she to a friend) werc quite refreshing ;"
but she frowned a little when she percciv
ed Mrs. Tiptow flirting violently with
young Duckdoodle, while poor Rose
Fauncing, his intended, sat by neglected
with big tear in ner eyes.
Next dav was Sunday, and a notable al
teration was observable in the apparel of
all the feminine congregation at church
You may prevail upon ladies to dress so
berly until one of their number sets the ex
ample of extravagance : but once this done,
good :bye to moderation. - The matrons and
maidens of B were not going to be
outdone by Mrs. Triptow. They ordered
new ureases, puilea out from arawers ana
ooxes their choicest furs, ribbons and false
tresses: and expended their pocket money
upon fifteen-button sloves. The men held
out a little longer, not wishing t J renounce

came the order of the day; and at night
men who appeared at the club without
swallow-tails were the exception. Fine
clothing begets a contempt for cheap
amusements, and as might have been ex
pected, the people of B promptly grew
ashamed of their tea-parties, penny read
ings, and penny-a-point whist. Mrs. Trip,
tow gave so nu elegant little dinners, and
other ladies fell bound to return 4ier hospi
talities in a similar fashion. Then she got
the manager of the Assembly Rooms to
hire a band which played every afternoon,
and to reward him she organized two sub
scription balls (one in fancy costume), a
charity bazar, and some privute theatricals,

inunduced into the club whist and ecarte

These diabolical coimcs on were crown
ed Jjy a sort of carnival masquerade which
MraTTriDtow cave ou Shrove Tuesday,
and at which all the guests had to wear
masks and domiuoes. t ne omcers oi a
nciirhborinc irarristHi. who came to loin
in this fun, declared it the creatcst treat
they had ever had. "Quite as good as a
Erench opera ball, by jove. " "As lor the
hostess, they pronounced her a regular
little brick, "with none of your confound
ed prudery." Uy this. time there were
two parties iu B who judged Mrs.
Triptow diversely. Three-fourths of the
women were against her. because of her
arts in wiling away mc men ; out all uie
men were on her side, and so were the la
dies who before her arrival and secretly
fretted under Lady Judith bharpmen's su
premacv. Among these were Miss Bickel,
and Mrs. Boundy. It delighted tais pair
to see bow domestic peace had been upset,
how jars and scandal had become rife
through Mrs. Triptow's barefaced flirta
tion. Young Duckdoodle, crowing more
and more infatuated, never left her side
in public and ceased paying any attention
to Hose Fauncing. . Mecking, the . vicar,
seemed to have crown mad, tor he was as
amarous as Duckdoodle. quite forgetting
that Mrs. Triptow was a married woman,
and that he himself was engaged to Laura
IsHcvemi, tnc general s ciaugulcr; out! Den
the general himself was as bad as Meek-
ing. for he apparently forgot that he bad a
daughter, ana chorused with me vicar in
saying that Mrs. Triptow -was tha sweet
est creature alive. In fact, the captain's
ife could go nowhere without a cloud of
gallants circling in her train; and her
triumph was completed when. Colonel
Sharpuian, Lady Judith's husband, added
himself openly to the number of -her
courtiers. . ....
It was Impossible to shut-one's eye to
lliese domes, uwyjuuitn prcccivcd that
a sorceress hail crossed ner path, and she
expressed herself on the subject Willi a se
vere frankness to Mr. Boundy and Iiss
Bickel one day when these ladies had called
upon her. Both of them assented, sighing
and seemea lo condole deeply with
'We were so sorry to near that colonel
Sharpman hail become her best friend," re
marked Miss Bickel with a pious snivel.
What do you mean ?" asked Lady.jndKh
for this part of the matter was news lo
"O, it's only lw-onlc's foolish talk!" said
jovial Mrs. Houndy, smothering a laugh.
T or niv part, 1 dont believe there's a
ivsrticlcot truth in the rumor," proceeded
Miss Bickel :"u hen they told mc the colonel
was deeply smitten, I answered that it was
"The colonel is very good natured," said
Lady Judith, rather loftily; "and his kind
ness of heart may expose him to be taken
liberties with. But it is inexcusable that
this laxly should put him in tbe position ot
being slandered. If Mrs. Triptow tries to
give mcpain. I shall have to read her a
smart lesson. You may tell her so from
Mrs. Boundy and Miss Bickel did teil
the captain's wife. It was the first thing
they did. and they conveyed their wurninc
in the most perfidious way possible bv ad
vising Mrs. Triptow to be careful, seeing
mat lauy j uuiui was a great lauy anu very

eyes flashed ; "if she so bores her husband
by her company uiat he prcters mine, that
is her aflair." -
"Well, but my dear, Uie colonel has al
ways been a good husband, and perhaps
his wife might tease him if she were
Ejwerlcss against veu," remarked Miss
ickcl. - .
Lady Judith is a terrible termagant.
quite equal to pulling her husband's ears,"
Oh. that would be excellent fun."
laughed Mrs. Triptow. "It so happens
that my husband ami I are going for three
days to the M races, and I shall invite
the colonel to come with us' without his
wife'a leave, lie is a dear, good man, and
I am sure he will accept."
Now Colonel Sharpman . was. as Mrs.
Triptow said, a dear, good man, a kind
husband, a capiat officer; but as regards
women a mere boy. 11c had been much
flattered by Mrs. Triptow's attentions to
ward himself much touched, too, by her
neauiy, grace anu wiu tr uen nis encuam
ress invited him to go with her to the M
races, he had not the heart to say no. and
went, taking French leave of his wife. It
was a liold move, and caused an awful
amount or tattle in li. During the three
Days the colonel's name was bandied
about like ashutUecock, and Lady Judith
had to submit to the intense humiliation
of being pitied by a whole series of visitors,
who called upon her just to Bee how she
looked. She looked very grim indeed, as
everybody noticed. : . .t
Mrs. Triptow .returned from M de
lighted with her adventure, and was
speedily apprised of all that had been said
during her absence. It delighted her.
With an internal lemtnino malice, bhe
thoucht that she. too. would call on Ladv
Judith to enjoy the sight of her discomfit
ed lace, one went accordingly alone one
afternoon drassed in ber finest. She re.
mem be red afterwards but all too late
that there was a peculiarly humorous
twiukle in the eyea of the maid that open
ed tho door to her, and who ushered her at
once to a back parlor not 'to the front
drawing-room. Here Lady Judith appear
ed before her, tall, fierce and sarcastic. ..

Triptow," said her lad whip: "you were
warned, were you not, that if you trifled
witn mc 1 should punish you 7"
"funlsh me!" exclaimed .Mrs. 1 Tiptow,
feeling highly uneasy, for she hid not like
the look ot her ladyship's eyes.
"Yea; you have been behaving like a
giddy girl, and I am going to treat you as
such I shall give you a whipping. O,
dont think to get away. I have given my
cook and house-maid orders in advance,
and they are coming in to hold you. I
hope the lesson will benefit you. - Anyhow
I am sure you will not care to bruit the
mutter;" and Lady Judith smiled.
"Help!" screamed Mrs. Triptow; but al
ready Lady Judith had sounded a hell, and
two strong women entered. Her ladyship
took up a nice little riding whip
"Mercy!" repeated the belle of B .but
the next moment a muffled sound of squeals

advised her that the case was 'loo

'All of us." says the London Times cor
respondent, "are interested in requiring
less wheat and meat from America, if it
can be done without reducing the food of
tbe people. -May 1 suggest a plan which
from my standpoint of thrift, would. I
think, at least assist ? This is simply that
we should nut waste as we do. The
amount of bread Unit is wasted, even in
the poorer parts of London, is very great.
Saving the bread and meat from waste is
tbe same aa producing the same amount
more at home. It would reduce the
Americans' bill by exactly a correspond
ing amount, and so tend to open their ports
to our goods.

gregate $18,000,000. This money is
needed to keep in operation the essential
functions of all the great departments of

provisions no objection to its approval
would be made. It embraces, however, a
number of clauses relaUnc to subjects of
great general interest wnicn are wholly
unconnecteu wiin - uie appropriation

practice of tacking general legislation to

objections I respectfully refer to that mes
sage for a statement ot my views on the
principle maintained in the debate by the
advocates of the bill, viz.: that to with

means for the redress of what the majority
of the house of representatives mav re

be repealed by the approval of this bill

thority to supervisors of election to per

section protects suix-rvisors and marshals

officers or any interference with them by
bribery or solicitation or otherwise, crimes
against the United States;
The true meaning and effect of the pro
posed legislation arc plain. Suiervisors
with authority to observe and witness pro.
ceedings at congressional elections will
be left, but there will be no power to pro
tect them, or to prevent interference with
their duties, er to punish any violaUon of
tbe law from which their powers are de
rived. If this bill is approved onlv the
shadow of the authority of the United
States at national elections will remain ;
the substance will lie gone. Su)c;vi8ion
of elections will be reduced to mere in
spection without authority on the part of
the supervisors to do any act whatever to
make the election a fair one. All that will
be left to the supervisors is permission to
have such oversight of elections as politi
cal parties are iu the habit of exercising
without any authority of law in order to
prevent their opponents from obtaining
unfair advautage. The object of the bill
is to destroy any control whatever by the
Uuited States over congressional " elec
tions. The passage of this bill has been urged
upon the ground that Uie election of mem
bers of cougresa Is a matter which con
cerns the states vlone ; that these dectious
should be controlled exclusively by the
state?; that there arc and can be no such
elections as national elections and that Uw
existing law of the United States regula
ting congressional elections is without war
rant in the constitution. It is evident,
however, that the trainers of the con
stitution regarded the election of
members of cou gross in every state and in
every -district as a very important mat
ter of political interest aud concern to the
whole country. The original provision of
tbe constitution, on this subject is as fol
Section 4, article 1. "The lime, places
aud manner of holding elections for sen
ators autl representatives shall lie pre
scribed in each statu by the legislature
thereof, but congress may at any time, by
law, make or alter such regulations, ex
cept as to the places of choosing senator."
A further provision has since been ad
ded which is embraced in the fifteenth
amendment. It is as follows: '
Sec. 1. "The right of citizens of the
United States to vote shall not be denied
or abridged by the United States, or by
any state, on account of nice, color or
previous condition of servitude.
See. 2. "The congress shall have power
to enforce this article by appropriate legis
lation." Under the general provisions of the con
sUtuUon, section 4, article ln congress in
fe66. passed a comprehensive law' which
prescribed full and detailed regulations for
Uie election of senators by the legislatures
of the-several -states, this law nas been
in force almost thirteen years. In pursu
ance of it all the members of Uie pres
ent senate of tbe United States hold their
seats. Its constituUonality is not called
in - question. It is confidently believed
that no sound argument can be made in
support of the constituUonality of national
regulation of senatorial elections which
will not show that the elections of mem
bers-ef Uie house of representatives may
a Is be constitutionally regulated by na
tional authority, 'the bill before me
itself recognized the principle that the
congressional elections are not state elec
tions, but national elections, it leaves in
full force the existing statute under which
supervisors are still to be appointed by
national authority to observe and witness
congressional elections whenever due ap
plications are made by the citizens who
desire such elections to be guarded and
rcrntinized. if the power to subverse in
any respect whatever the congressional
elections exists under section 4, arucie l,
of the constitution, it is a power
which, like every other power belong
ing to the government of the
United States, is paramount and
supreme, and includes Uie right
to employ the "necessary means to
carry it into effect. The statutes of Uie
United States which regulate tne election
of members of tho house of representa-
Ean essential part of which it is pro
to repeal by this bill, have been in
about eight years. Four congres
sional elections have been held under
them, two of which were at the presidan
tial elections of 1872 and 1876; numerous
Prosecutions, trials and convictions have
een had in courts of the United States in
all parts of Uie Union for violation of these
laws, but in no reported case has their
constitutionality been called in question
by any judge of the courts of the United
States. The validity of these laws is sus
tained by the unuorm course oi judicial
action aad opinion. If it be urged that
United States election laws are not neces
sary, a complete reply is furnished by the
history of their origin and of their results.
They were especially prompted by Uie in
vestigation and exposure oi irauus com
mitted in the city and state of New York
in Uie elections of 1870. Commissioners
icprescnting both of the leading political
parties of the country have submitted re
IMirts to the house ot representatives, as to
the extent of these frauds. A committee
the fortieth con cress, after a full inves
tigation, reached Uie conclusion that the
number of fraudulent votes cast in the
city of New York aiono in 186a was not
less than za,uuu. A committee oi tne
forty-fourth congress fn their report, sub
mitted in 1877, adopted the opinion that
for every one hundred actual votes of the
city of New York in 1808, one hundred
and eight votes were cast, where, in tact.
the number of lawful votes cast should
not have exceeded 88 per cent of the actual
votes cast. By this statement tbe number
of fraudulent votes cast at that election, in
the city of New York alone, was from
30.000 to 40,000. These frauds completely
reversed the result of the election in the
slate of New 1 ork, both as to the choice
ot governor and state officers, and as to
tne cuoice ot electors oi presmcni nuu
v ce president ot Uie United Slates. They
attracted the attention of the whole coun
try. It was plain that if they could
be continued and repeated with
impunity, free government was
impossible. A distinguished sen
ator, in opposing the pas
sage of election laws, declared thaqhe had
lor a long lime oencvea mat our iorm oi

conscientiously disapproves: . measures
plainly intended to allow free course to

Jietolced that the present extra session

yond all possbile excuse. Not only to the
depletion of Uie treasury, but also the
crave detriment of every industrial and
commercial interest of the country; and

to Uie resumption of specie payment,
already happily accomplished, by con
stantly tampering with 'a currency system
unsurpassed in the world, by reopening
and stimulating sectional controvery, es
pecially through the avowed determina
tion to repeal all legislation, and by seek
ing to inaugurate a reactionary revolution
designed to restore full power to a solid
south in Uie affairs of the government.
Jittolttd. 1 hat Uie financial administra
tion of Uie government by Uie republican

Mr. Delmonieo, talking about entrees,
says the American oucht to copy "the -French
method of utilizing small bits of
raw meats and fowls, and of re-cooking :
ail kinds of cold joints and pieces or
cooked meat which remain, day by day, -from
dinner in almost every family." The
success of such dishes depends mainly on
uie. sauce: "Take an ounce of ham or
bacon, cut it up io small pieces, and Cry .'
in hot fat. ' Add an onion and carrot cut

pint or quart of broth, according to w
quantity desired, season with pepper and ;
salt, and an spice or herb that is relished
(better thou without Uie spcice), and lot
simmer for an hour, skim carefully, and
strain. A wine glass of any wine added
if liked." Cold roast or broiled beef or
mutton may be cut into small sqaares,fried
brown in butter.and then gently stewed
in the sauce above described. Mr. Del

"Veal, mutton, lamb, sweet breads, .
and almost any of the lighter meats,

Chop Uie meat very fine. Chop up -an
union, fry it in an ounce of butter, add

three minutes, tl en add Uie yolks of two
eggs, and turn Uie whole mixture into a
dish to cool. When cold mix well together
again. Divide up parts for the croquette,,

in beaten egg, then into bread crumb
