THEANACONDA STANDARD: WEDNESDAY MORNING. OCTOBER JO, 1889.
Brookiya Ragta.^People who have met ine on the train^aay that I am at all men m wt imtdm^unsociable aud uuaccoiornrMlating; that I^never offer to open the window for any^^wie, never clone tbe floor after the brake-^inan luw gone out ami taken tlie end of^tbe ear and a crashing noia* with him,^never offer to turn a swat for two la^lie*^who wish to monopolise four sitting* with^m trip pn^ nod a scalper ticket; never, in^abort, offer any of those little attentions^to my fellow-travelers which tbe fresh^young naen and tbe simple old ones^are so ready and glad to em tend. I plead^guilty. I never do. I will do anything I^am asked to do, if I have time, aud feel^just like it, and there seetas to be uo good^reason why I shouldn't, but I won't vol^^unteer to do anything; on tbe train. I used^to^some. 1 am older now, anil know so^much leas than formerly that both my^^neighbors of the road and myself get^along much more comfortable. Years^ami year* ago I one (lay picket] up a sltawl^which fell from a lady's lap into the aisle^of tbe ear. As I picked it up such a mis^^cellaneous assortment of articles, mostly^of an edible nature, fell out of tliat sltawl^that I was paralysed with amusement,^and nothing but the lurid language^of the owner brought rtlxmt the reac^^tion that was necessary to Have my^life. For the largest fee 1 ever was paitl 1^never afforded a car full of people so^much amusement as I did for nothing hy^that little act of kindness. With the ex^^ception of the lady whose lunch basket^the shawl was and myself I think every^^body wiiM pleased. And passengers in the^other ^ am, all the way from the smoker to^the sleepers, hearing the Hounds of mirth,^came into our car and asked al^out it.^And the people who had the loudest aud^(dearest voices told the incident, referring^to nie as ^* that man,^ or, to avoid tautology,^as the story had to he re |h-ate ^l many times,^in the course of 145 miles, ^that fellow,^or ^that chap.^ or ^that man settin^there.^ I sawed wood very conscientiously^for a long time after that, but on another^evil day I entertained another traveling^audience by tugging at a car window^which bad never been opened since the^car was built. I wore a porous-plaster ou^the plinth of my spinal column for a^couple of weeks, and reformed again. I^burned tbe old resolutions on the tablets^of memory and engraved them with u^of iron on my heart. I also made up my^mind that I would endeavor to renieml^er^them.
Well,a week or two since I wits thun^^dering along through the miles of ex^^quisite landscape gardening that mark^the suburbs of I'hi ladelphia. A young^gentleman sitting just in front of me left^the train at a local station, aud just as we^started again half a doarn female voices^shrilled out upon the startled air: ^Oh!^^ ^h! Oh! That-yoiiug-man-huH-lcft-his-^unihrella! Oh! He'll-uevvr-see-it-agaiii!^Call-liim-quirk! Oh! Throw-it-out-to-^him-do-do-iHvthrow - that-youiig-iuau-his-^umhrella!^ And as they pointed at the^young man and shrieked at me I hastily^raised the window, the |m^wern of dark^^ness assisting me, yelled at the young^^nan, hurled the umbrella ut him, like a^javelin, and we were gone.
Inaltout two minutes a young man two^stories and a mansard taller than^any iih-iiiImt of my whole family^came down the aisle of that ear with^a darkened brow, and looked^long and earnestly into the vacant seat^whence I hail just fired a silk umbrella^with a bampercd-siIvcr head. He looked^under tie- seat and then lu^ looked into^ruck. Then he looked at me. I didn't^look up. but I felt les ^^yes goelear through^me. us I gazed llxi d'.y out of the window^anil tried hard to think of the form^of prayer to be used for a mall^who expects to s|m'lld tht* rcKt of^the winter in the hospital. Before 1^could remember it the athletic-looking^stranger said kind y hut very firmly : ^I^left an umbrella in this seat a few min^^utes ago.^ For one moment the ghastliest^silence you ever heard settled down on^that car, and then the shrieking women^giggled us though it were a light tiling to^die when you hail a return ticket in your^pocket that would Is- wasted. I tried to^tell the stranger that the young man who^was Kitting ill the seat took it with him,^but I thought I had done enough wicked^^ness and folly for one trip. 1 owned up^and told him the truth. He was a magnan^^imous mull mid he spared lint. Hut it was^a moment of agony, and to-day there are^white hairs on the hac k of my head that I^never saw before, und I never pass^through Mcriori station without a shud^^der. Audi never again will offer to ex^^tend the slightest helpful courtesy to a^stranger. No; if a train should jump off^a bridge 4,Out) feet high into a cataract^fiercer than 1^^.^^^^ Niagaras I wouldn't^offer to hold it lone woman's baby and^get her hand-bag out of the rack for her.^while she put on her gossamer and hunted^for her lost cheek in cam- kIic should want^her baggage when we got to the bottom.
NomrComment** on Professor Phelps* Ke-
centArticle on NhUd'n Home.^From the Christian Register.
Hellhas Im-cii painted as a place of ex^^treme heat, und also of extreme cold,^where there is chattering of teeth, as u^place of darkness, as a pandemonium of^unearthly sounds. Just what details of^torture, horror and disgust the human^imagination could devise have Im-cii set^forth with remarkable power by Haute.^Professor Phelps' recent article in the^( imijmjit'i'inulixt is a kind of translation^of Dante into ('ulviiiistic prose. No figure^or emblem which could add to the terror^of hell has been omitted. Among other^things, we are reminded that ^one of the^biblical emblems of the future woe ap^^pears to be addressed to the sense of^smell.^ Do we not find the genu of^this in one of the most appalling dis^^closures of the curse with which sin has^gangrened this material frame ^ It con^^sists of maladies which create disgusting^and intolerable odors.
Fireand darkness and infernal noise^used to be tbe main wea|^ons of the hcll-^paintcr. Tbe sense of smell has never^been worked up to the same extent. Per^^haps it may be liecause the nose is leas^intimately connected with the conscience^or tbe aenae of fear than some other or^^gans. Model u theology has succeeded in^pretty much putting out tbe everlasting^Ares of bell by extinguishers more potent^than Isxptismal water. It has dispelled^tbe darkness by introducing the sunshine^of God's mercy, it has reduced its noises^to music, its discord to harmony, and we^may hope that there are moral and spiri^^tual disinfectants capable of deodorising^even the bottomless pit.

LostSunday a young raquero by the^name of Billy Wilkes 'loped off with one^of Visalia's fair daughters. Miss Ivy Fran^^cis, and brought her down here to avoid^the parental storm. It seems that the oltl^folks were nut inclined to favor the ardent^young va^iuero's suit for their daughter's^heart and hand, anil put a quietus on hia^attentions to her a short time ago. She^hod atiot lit r beau, however, who was quite^attentive to her. an J last Sunday No. -.

Hutalas! He sees in the distance a car^^riage coming swiftly toward him. Aa it^draws near be can sea his rival, tbe va-^qurru, all dressed up in hia Kuudojr-go-to-^^llfeting clothes, lie grits bis teeth.
**But all. she's mine,^ be thinks.

Forthe past day or ao there baa been a^rumor of ghost* having I teen seen at night^out at Oak tirove cemetery. A reporter^got wind of this and want out for an in^^vestigation. ^Yes, air,^ said a colored^man who lives in that neighbor^^hood, ^there is talk of ghosts over^there; my wife says site saw them^one night.^ ^ la your wife at home 7^^asked the reporter. ^No, sir, she ain't^here and you can't see iter, but if you will^go to the fifth house on the right hand^side down there you will find old mail An^^bury Kemp. He will tell you all about it.^The reporter followed the directions as^nearly as practicable, and sitting in the^door of the house, eating away on a piece^of watermelon,was til** old negro,his head^gray and form bent with age. The rcpor*^ter asked him about the ghosts.^The old mall started up. his counte^^nance having a troubled, frightened ex^^pression as lie told his story, and when he^hod fluished heads ot perspiration stotsl^out ou hia face. ^It's all so. boss. The^ghost is over there for I done seen 'em^myself. You see, the other night Lucy's^huby was sick, and she asked me to go^out und bring in some wood to make a^tire. When I went out I sorter looked^over toward the grave yard, and, lioss, I^was scared anil scared bad. Kight there,^under them trees, 1 saw three white^tiling-. They atot d up there holding bund.-,^and one of tbciu had a light. I watcheu^them for a little while and they Just^went up over the tops of the trees and^disappeared. Boss, I didn't wait there to^get any wood or nothing. I just picked^up and went to Mary's on G street, and I^have stayed there ever since. I wouldn't^sleep down here again for anything, for^them things would just he on my mind all^the tiiue. I tell you they are there, for I^see 'em myself, and if you will come down^her* any night at just 12 o'clock you can^see 'em, too/' By this time quite a crowd^had congregated around the porch where^the interview was held, and several of the^darkies corroborated th^ story.
