How I'cler llriiiirt Won IiIn Chhc
A corrcf ponJcnt of the New York
World lins tho following respecting
one of A. H. Stepheus experiences as
n lawyer in Georgia in the nnti-bellutu
A doctor uamea itoyston nan sued
Peter Bonnet for his bill, long over
due, for attending tho wife of the lat
ter. Alex. II. Stephens was on the
Rennet side, Robert Toombs, then Son-
ntor of the United yuites, was for Kov-
ton. The doctor proved his mmitier
of vi.-it.x, their value according to local
custom, and his own authority to do
medical practice. .Mr. Stephens told
ids client that the physician had made
out bis case, and as there was nothing
wherewith to re'jut or ollset the claim
the only thing to do was to pay it.
ISo. saidreter, "1 lnreil vou to sneak
in my case and now speak."
Mr Stephens told him there was
nothing to hity; he had looked to see
if it was matte out, and it was.
Peter was obstinate, and at last Mr.
Stephens told him to make a speech
linnselt, it he thought one couiu be
"I will," said Peter Rennet, "if
Bobby Toombs won't be too hard on
Senator Toombs promised, and Peter
"Ucntlancn of tficjurt lou anil 1

together these 'ere lawyers and doctors
will get the advantage ot us. I am l
no lawyer nor dootor, and I ain't no
objections to them in their proper
place; hut they am t fanners, gentle
men of the jury.
"Aow this raau Koyston was a new
doctor, and I went for him to doctor
my wife's lei;. And ho come and put
Mime salve truck on it and some rags,
but never done it one bit of cood gen
tlemen of the jurv. I don't believo he
is a doctor, io way. Thero is doctors
as is doctors sure enough, but this man
don't earn his niouiiy ; anil if you scud
for him, as Mrs. Atkinson did, for a
negro boy as was worth $1,000, he
just killed him and wants pay for it."
"1 don t, thundered the doctor.
"Did you cure him ?" asked Peter,
with tho slow accents of a judge with
a black cap on.
I he doctor was Mlent, and 1'eter
"As 1 was Bityin , geutlerrcn ot the
jury, wo larmers when wo son our cot
ton, hits to give value lor tho money
wc ask, and doctors ain't none too
good to be put to the same rule. Atid
I don t believe this bam. Koyston is
no doctor, no how."
Tho physician again put in his oar,
with, "Look at my diploma, if you
think I am no doctor."
"His diploma I" exclaimed the fledg
ed orator, with great contempt. "His
diplomal Genthmcn, that is a big
word tor pruned sneepsKius, and it
didn't make no dootor of the sheep as
first wore it, does it out of the man
that now carries it ? A good newspa
per has more in it, and I pint out to
you that he ain't no doctor at nil.
llio man ot medicine was now m a
fury, and screamed out: "Ask my
patients if I am not a doctor."
"I asked my wife," retorted Peter,
"and she said as how she thought you
"Ask my other patients," said Dr.
This seemed to be tho straw that
broke tho camel's back, for Peter re
plied with a look and tone of unutter
able sadness: "lhatis n hard sayin ,
gentlemen of the jury, and one as re
quires mo to dio or to have power as I
liavn hearn tell ceased to bo exercised
since the Apostles. Does ho expect
rae to bring the angel Gabriel down to
toot his horu and cry aloud, 'Awako
ye dead ; and tell this court and jury
your opinion of Roystons practice?'"
Am I to go to the lonely churchyard,
and rap on tho silent tomb, and cay to
'em as is at last at rest from physio
and doctor's bills, 'Get up hero "and
state if you died a natural death, or
was hurried away by some doctor?'
He eays ask bis patients, and, genllo-
incn of tho jury, they are all dead I
Where is Mrs. Ueaslcy'a man Sam 1

What Divorces Do.
We copy from an exchange the ap
pended narrative of a young girl,
which, whether accurate or not, shows
what is the tendency of the present
loose divorce laws. No person having
a proper conception of the marriage
tie will ever ask far a divorce.
There is a young lady in tho city
who says she hu more parents and
step-parents living than any one she
ever heard of. ilns is the way sho
tells the story i
" You know papa and mamma never
could agree, aud so finally they got
divorced. I don't say whoso fault it
was, but mamma did behave ugly
sometimes, and even I could not get
along with her. So when the separa
tion came 1 went to live with papa.
Shortly aftorward mamma married
again, and papa waj not long in fol
lowing suit. I did not like it very
well at first, but my stepmother turned
out to be first rato, and I got to like
her splendid. Then papa seemed to
get infactuated with another woman
that he got acquainted with, and she
wheedled around him until she made
trouble, and the result was another
divorce, and papa soon married the
woman that made thc trouble. When
the second separation took placo I
went with my stepmother, because I
loved her and because my services
were necessary to help to take caro of
the baby. Ihen what docs she do hut
goes and gets married. I declare I
never saw o much marrying in my
life. It only linppened a little while
ago, and my new stepfather I sup
pose ho is treats me in a very kindly
sort of way, as if he felt ho couldn't
help himself, but didn't exactly like
it, and I don't like it a bit. T can't go
back to mamma, because she is mad
with mo for going with papa in tho
first instance, and I can't go to papa
beoause of that wheedling woman, and
I can't bear to stay where I nns.
i It is too bud that a girl should have a
lather and a mother and two steptath
4 ers and two stepmothers all living at
once, and not a house that sho can feci j
at homo in."

Si:.s'atok Roscoi: Conklinm.
An l:nterrllic(l Female.
Mrs. Jenks bos been on tho stand.
Sho has faced the Potter Committee,
and has covered herself with glory in
her evasive replies to all the conun
drums propounded by General Butler.
Mrs. Jenks is not a fool by a jug full.
She is a smart ladv as well as a verv
valuable one, and being in the presence
of that august committee did not frus
trate her the least particle. She knew
what she had to say, aud she said it
well. Her intention was to shield
Sherman by conveying tho impression
that she wrote, the famous Sherman
letter herself, but those who will take
the trouble to rend the testimony can
not come to any other conclusion ;
though her testimony was given in an
unhesitating nud confident style, it was
decidedly too thin to servo the pur
pose. Her roundalwut and evasive
replies made it suflieiently plaiu that
thero were reservations which would
present tho matter in a different phase.
Mrs. Jenks is the smartest woman by
long odds to bo found in that family,
and if sho does not succeed in clearing
Sherman's skirts of rascality, "no other
woman need apply.
The Lu.st Scene.
Tho doling scono in Washington
was not the most rceJierchc affair that
we have ever read. On tho contrary
it was very unheoaining indeed, if we
arc to judgo from tho statements of L.
vi W., who writes to the Courier-dour-nal
as follows :
Por an hour past the Houso has
been behaving like school boys and
some members like blackguards. Many
seem to havo no higher ambition than
that of clowns in a circus. In this
mood thoy have passed a po.-t-route
bill, leaving out all disputed points.
Thev have also agreed to a bill to ab
rogate the policy of force and robbery
adopted towards Venezuela by thc last
Mr. Hwiry Watterson left lost night
for Now York.
Tho members of Congress will gen
erally mako a bee line for homo as soon
as tho session shall be over.
Nearly all the jobs passed at this
session have been for tho benefit of thc
Northern people and Northern claim
ants. The so-called Rebels got nothing but
"cusses." epithets-and slander from
their loving Northern brethcrn.
Tho hut lick at the Treasury was a
bill passed to-day, granting pensions
from tho data of disability, and to thc
limn of nntilioation. This will only
take fifteen or twenty millions of dol
lars from tho Treasury, The Senato
is expected to stop tho mischiof from
ripening into a full-blown steal.
The scenes of tho night are simply
disgraceful. A recess has just been
I ordered, and as I write this, a number
of members are singing songs in the
hall of thc House. It is high time for
tho fool-killer and the reformer to como
along, if he ever means to put. in an
WiiMtu a till Want.
Either mnu must bo content with
poverty all his life, or else deny him
self some Inxuries and save to lay the
base of independence in tho future.
But if a man defies the future mid
spends all he earns (whether his earn
ings lo ono or ten dollars a day) let
him k'Ok for lean nud want at tome
future time for it will surely come,
no matter what ho thinks. To save is
absolutely tho only way to get a solid
fortune; there is no other certain
mode. Those who shut their eyes
and ears to these certain facts will be
forever jioor, and in their olistinutc
rejection of truth, mayhap, will die in
nigs aud filth. Let them so die, and
thank themselves. But no ! They
lake a sort tjf recompense in curing
fortune, ureat waste ot breath. Ihey
might as well cure thc mountains or
eternal hills. For wc can tell fortune
docs not give awuv good and substan
tial goods. Sho sells them to tho
highest bidder to the hardest and
best workers for the Itouii. Men never
make so fatal a mist-ike as when they
think themselves creatures of fate;
tis thc sheerest folly in thc world
Every man may mako or mar himself.
which ever he may choose. Fortune
if for those who by diligence, honesty,
frugality, place" themselves in positiru
to grasp hold of fortune when it np
ncarrt in view. The best evidence of
frugality is tho five dollars or more
standing in your namo at tho savings
hank. 1 ho best evidenco of honesty
consists in diligence and frugality.
A Urrnt Farmer'. .Maxim.
Tho successful life of Mr: Jacob
Strawn, the prince of American farm
ers, is attributed to the close observa
tion of tho following maxims, origina
ted by himself.
Make your fences high and strong,
so they will keep cattle and pigs out.
If you havo brush, make your lots,
strong and secure and keep the hogs
from the corn.
Bo sure to get hands to bed by sev
en o clock; they will ruo early by
force of circumstances.
Pay a hand if ho is a poor one, all
you promise ; and, if ho is a good one,
pay him a little more; it will encour
age him to do still better.
Always feed your hands as well as
you feed yourself, for tho laboring men
are tho bone and sinew of the laud, and
ought to bo well treated.
I am satisfied that getting up early,
industry and regular habits arc the

We cut this out of tho Cuvington
Post: Tho Communist leaders aro a
queer lot. They want to destroy all
thc machinery, or put it in thc
hands of the woikingmcn. All right ;
give it to tln'in. What ore they to do
with it when they have no capital with
which to purchase raw material, or
buildings in which to carry on opera
tions? Take them from tho owners?
Very good ; the owners being reduced
to poverty, they can oiganizc another
Commune and re-possess themselves of
their property, holding it until such
time as still .mother Commune shall
again relieve them of it. A pretty
state of affairs, truly.
A misunderstanding of a seriou na
ture has taken place between the Hon.
Henry Watterson and Hon. Ahram b.
Hewctt of New York, in regard to the
electorial bill which gave Mr. Hayes
thc presidential otuce. Mr. Watterson
charges that most of the Democratic
representatives were opposed to tho bill
anil that Mr. Tildcn was also opposed
to it, but that Mr. tlewett, as chair
man of tho Democratic executive com
mittee, and the right-hand man of Mr.
Tilden, successfully created the impres
sion that he (Tilden) was in favor of
thc bill, and that for this reason the
members supported it, thinking thoy
wero following tho wishes of their
Mr. Watterson gave his statement
to a reporter of the New York Sun,
to which Mr. Hewett replies at length
substantially denying all the charges,
and Mr. Watterson repeats them with
emphasis in tho following words:
"Now, 1 repeat and declare mv
charge of personal dishonor upon you;
and as you don't wish to fight it out.
and I m sure 1 ilon t l will mako you
this proposition : You select two mem
bers of thc committee of advisement,
of which both of us were members ; I
will .-elect two; the four shall seleet u

good I will make you a public apology."
Starting in I lip World.
Many an unwise parent labors bard
and lives sparingly all his life for thc
purpose ot leaving enough to give his
children a start in tho world, as it is
called. Setting a young man afloat with
money left him by his rich relatives is
like tying bladders upon the arms of
one who can not swim ten chances to
one he will lose his bladders and go to
tho bottom. Teach him to swim and
he will never need tho bladders. Give
your child a sound education, and you
havo dona enough for him. Seo to it
that his morals are pure, his mind cul-!
tivatcd and his whole nature subser-j
vient to laws which govern man, and ;
you havo given him what will bo of
ruoro value to him than tho whole
wealth of the Indies.

A Cure lor Drunkenness.
Tho Scientific American contains an
account of an experimental test of
Diebig's theory for the cure of habitual
drunkenness. Tho experiment con
sisted of a simple chango of diet, and
was tried upon twenty-seven persons,
with satisfactory results. The diet
proposed is farinaceous, and in the
cases reported was composed of macca
roni, haricot, beans, dried peas and
lentils. Tho dishes were made palat
able by being thoroughly boiled and
seasoued with butter or olive oil.
Breads of a highly glutinous quality
were used, care being taken to prevent
their being soured in course of prepa
tion. In this explanation of the theory,
Liebig remarks that the disinclination
for alcoholic stimulants, after partak
ing ot such food, is due to the carbon
uceous starch contained therein, which
carbon of liquors. If this plan proves
successful, it will Ikj the medium of cf -
fectmg a more thorough reform than

Two Germans fresh from Cincinna
ti visited New York, and one, well ac
quainted with tho city, invited his
friend to Delmouico's, where a dinner
for two and n bottle of wine was or
dered. The place and fare wits prtised
until tho bill 11 was presented. This
thoy considered an extortion. They
paid, however, and while walking
down Broadway the excited German
commenced to swear at the suppo.-ed
extortion. His friend then said. "Do
not shwear, Yawcob. It is wicked to
shwear. God has punished dot man
Delmouico." "How ?" "I have mine
pocket full mit spoons."
Mr. Lecky, in his History of the
Middle Ages, savs. with respect to
cleanliness, that the saints in Mesopo
tamia reganteil washing tne body as a
pollution of the soul, and no man was
considered to havo attained the full
odor of sanctity until he has converted
himself into one hideous mass of clot
ted filth. St. Anthony, in his extreme
old age, refused to put his feet in hot
water, on the ground that washius of
any sort was lleshy vanity. St. Abra
ham, for htty years after his conver
sion, rigidly refused to wash either his
face or his feet, ohservtns that tho face
ought to reflect the purity of the soul.
St. Euphrasia joined a convent of 139
nuns who never washed their feet, and
who shuddered at thc mention of a
A beautiful young heiress in Moscow
has married a begger 8b' years old. It
has a queer look at first, but nothing
could no more natural, tho young
girl she is onlv 22 could not enter
into possesion of her fortune until she
was married, ami the young men whom
her guardrtn introduced to her were
empty headed creatures, to whom sho

so she resolved to marry an old beggar
and get the money withoqt sacrificing
her independence, l.he old man was
one of her pensioners, and readily con

of her way, retiring oti a comfortable
allowance. All thc beggars feasted and
made merry on tho wedding night.
Proofs or former explorations are
found in various paits of the Black
Hills region, and it is probable that
gold was discovered there about thirty
years ago by several separate parties

beasts, mingled with rusted mining
tools, wero in ono place discovered
within a rude fortilic.ttion of rucks. In

It is curious that money should be
called by so many different names.
Some describe it as "spondulix,"some
as the "stuff," some as the "sugar,"
some us "rhino," sonio as "spoons,"
some as tho "ready," others as "brads."
The French call it "l'argent," the Eng
lish "the needful," in Mexico, "cast

"tin," in the West "rags," in Canada
it goes by tho namo of "spelter," iu
New York it is "short."
A promise should bo given with
caution, and kept with care. A prom
ise should be made with tho heart and
remembered by tho head. A promise
is the offspring of tho intention, and
should ho nurtured by recollection. A
promiso and its performance should,
like a true balance, always present a
mutual adjustment. A promise delay
ed is justice deferred. A promiso neg
lected is an untruth told. A promise
attended to is a doubt settled.

A Proposition to Trackers.
I will publish in this column the
name, P. O. address, and grade of cir.
j tificate of every teacher in Ohio county
who subscribes for the Hartford Hei:
ai.d, if he will furnish me with the
necessary data. The advantage of this
arrangement is apparent to all.
Why is it that the business of teach
ing meets with so marked a want of
respect: It is not that it is not as
important and legitimate a profession
, 0thcr' ,,0r. M li ,,ccaU3Q t,,c
1 mass "ave not a just appreciation of
i learning. Then why is it? It must
be attributable to the fact that so many
engage in it who ate not competent
who tio not properly appreciate the
high calling wherein they are en
gaged who consider it merely as a
means of accumulating dollars and
cents who really hate the calling,
but have no other means of making
money. Teachers, respect your call
ing, and by your example force others
fo respect it.
It is a duty in fact a neccss!t
for teachers to take and read soma good
educational journal. To the moro gen-
i cra' reading of such journals may be at
tnbuted the advanced condition of
teachiug as a profession and the better
grade of teachers. I well remember
when half the teachers in Ohio county
made no pretence to teach grammar.and
as to arithmetic many of- them would
gravely assure their pupils that unless
they were going to be "professional"
men, there w3 no use to study it far
ther than the " single rule of three" in
Sraileys or Pike's arithmetic. In fact,
they could teach no further.
I was assured by a gentleman, not
long since, that my column had bene
fitted his children moro thait any
three month's schooling they had ever
received. Don't that make the Her

it, if you please. In tho sentence,

what whistling relates to boy.
