LEADING WICHITA JEWELLER!
FOR THE FAIR SEX.
Ily her who In this month Is liom
No gems save garnets should be worn ;
They will Insure her constancy,
True friendship and fidelity.
The February born will find
Sincerity and )ear of mind,
Freedom from jiassion and from care,
If they the amethyst will wear.
Who on this world of ours their eyes
Iu March first open shall be wise ;
In days or peril Arm and brave,
And wear a bloodstone to their grave.
She who in April dates her years
Diamonds should wear, lest bitter tears
For vain repentance flow ; this stone
Emblem of Innocence is known,
Who first beholds the light of day
In spring's sweet flowery month or Slay,
And wears and emerald all her lire,
Shall be a loved and happy wife.
Who comes with summer lo this earth,
And owes to Jnne her day of birth.
With ring or agate on her hand,
On health, wealth, long life command.
A fiKSt FOR F.VKItV MONTH,
The glowing ruby should adorn
Those who In warm Jnly are liom ;

A Bapphlre on her brow should bind

The llostnn JUralJ, of the lllli, prints
rather an Interesting story of bow General
Grant re-entered the army in 18C1, as told
by an old classmate who was then muster
ing olUcer in Illinois.
Grant, he says, turned up one day. He
had not seen him since tbo Mexican war.
Grant said lie was married and hail had
very bad lock. Somehow he couldn't get
along. He did not know why. He said
jti'-t then he lived In Galena, aud was work
ing in a tautiery in which he had a small
"Why don'tyougolutothearniyJ" said
"Well, I have lieen thinking of that," he
answered; "but I have no influence, aud It
seems von cant get anything nowadays
"That is very true," I said.
"Did ou notice that they have made Hai
led; (who was nn Instructor in mathematics
vtlieu Grant wa? a cadet) a major-general i"
said Grant; "and I see that red-headed
'Cump Sherman has been made colonel of
the new l.'lth infantry," he went on to say,
and, after a moment's meditation, softly
muttered, though Grant was never a vio
lently profane man, "Halleck a major-gen
eral and .Sherman a colonel! The Lord
look down ! Tom," continued Grant, after
thinking a minute, "can't you give mc
something to do here!"
"Yes, I can," 1 said ; you can help me
make out thec muster rolls right."
So it was agreed that Grant should tome
into my ollicc, help me In my duties as
mtiilering olliccr and receive .1 hundred
and twenty dollars a month for his services.
So it went on until I had mustered In
eighteen regiments. One afternoon uov.
Yates scut tor me. I found him in a state
of excitement poor Icllow he was that
way very often. He had just had a dis
patch from Gen. I'rcntiss, at Cairo, that
there was an immense force of rebels on
the Kentucky side within a few hours of
Carlo, aud lie had undoubted information
that they were lo be crossed over at once,
perhaps that very night. He begged the
governor to send him every available man
at once. This alarming news was followed
by another telegram from President Lin
coln, at Washington, telling Yates that on
no account must the rebels get any foot
hold in Illinois, to prevent any crossing if
possible, and to co-operate with Gen. Pren
tiss. The governor had sent forme to say
that he wanted the troops, then in camp,
mustered into the United States service,
and sent oil' to. Cairo that night. While the
governor was talking, a thought flashed in
to my mind. Why can't I put Grant into
otic of these regiments?
"Governor," said I, "these regiments
will probably get into a fight within twenty-four
hours. It is rather important that
they should be properly commanded. Who
arc to be mado colonels?"
Mot of the candidates for the field of
licers were in hearing, and the fact that
they would have to go into a hattlo within
twenty-four hours seemed to repress their
military ardor somewhat.
"Now, Governor," said I ; "Ihave In my
office an old classmate and comrade, ,'le
was all through the Mexican war, and was
.1 good ioldler. What lie has been doing
since, I do not exactly know, but be has
not been very successful in business and
would like to go out in one of these new
regiments, especially as they will probably
have to go Into a.flgbt so soon. I strongly
recommend Capt. Grant to command one
of these new regiments."
The governor didn't know what to do.
He had promised nearly all the positions
except the last regiment, which would be
the 21st Illinois, and a man named Alexan
der wanted to be colonel, and was very
strongly backed for that position. But
Alexander bad seen no service, and was
willing to take the second place In view oi
the probable fight. Yates insisted, how
ever that Grant must be recommended for
the place by some one in the State.
"Can't jou get some one to recommend
you?" said I to Grant.
Ho finally said he knew a man named
Washbttrnc a little, who was then member
of Congress from the Galena district, but
that as he (Grant) was a democrat and
Washburne a republican, It was doubtful
If Wathburnc would do It. "However, I
Will try him," said Grant, aud he telegraph
ed to Washburae about as follows:
"Uecommend me for position as field offi
cer In new regiments starting for Cairo."
In lour hours Washburae replied about
like this : "I think Capt. Grant might be
useful as a field officer In one of the new
regiments leaving Springfield to-night, If
you can consistently appoint him."
Well, this fixed it. Grant was made
colonel of the Slst Illinois infantry. I
loaned him money enough to send his wife"
sonic, and hare enough left to purchase a
horse and such articles ,of equipment aa
were necessary. This is the way Grant
went into the war. The rest is history.
Grant' never forgot tho friend who hail
stood hy him so staunchly when the clouds
looted the darkest. He mado him a colon
el in the army in 18C6, and appointed one
son In the army and tha other lo West
Point, 'where he graduated well. When
his leg got well enough to allow him to do
any service, Grant made him superinten
dent of the United States military academy
at West Point, and, after bis tour of duty
there, lie was appointed superintendent of
the Soldiers' Home near Washington. He
can always get anything Grant can help
THE AUTHOR OF "SWEET HOME."
Payne was a boy prodigy upon the stage,
but not a remarkable' actor in bis maturity.
Tben be waa a manager, a writer and
adapter of plays, a "general utility" man
in translating and arranging. He lost
money aa a manager, and was imprisoned
In London. He opened his prison door
wife a successful translation, played Rich
an! the Third (or a few nights, and left the
stage. Tben he sent some plays In manu
script to Charles Kemblc, and among them
waa CUri, and If Kemble would give him
iSO be would bare Bishop arrange the play
with music for the stage. Kemble sent the
money ; Bishop arranged the music ; Ellen
Tree's sister sang it. One song in it melted
the Iteart of Loudon and of the world, and
the plaintive melody Is everywhere famil
iar, and everywhere its tender pathos In
vest with affectionate regard the name of
John Howard l'avne.
It was In Italy that he heard the melody
sung by a peasant girl carrying flowers and
vegetables. The wandering Goldsmith
might have beard it, and trilled it at twi
light from bit flute : for it is the very pen
sive motive of the "Deserted Village."
To the loitering playwright the melody
suggested the words which he has associat
ed with it, and jotting dowii the notes of
the air, he sent both words and music to
Ulshop, who duly arranged them, and after
the immediate and great success of the
song, It was published "as sung by Miss
Tn;e," sister of Ellen Tree "composed
and partly fouaJed upon a Sicilian air by
Henry It. Bishop." lint Payne's name is
not even mentioned. CUri, the Maid of
Milan, was the rage. Kor many years it
was often suug, and its performance Is a
pleasant reminiscence of theatregoers of
thirty and forty years ago. Pa)iie conlln
tied to write tragedies and comedies, operas
and farces, and in 1S32 he returned to
America. A complimentary benefit was
given to him at the Tark Theatre, which
produced 7,000. "Aud Sir Joiies,"jys a re
cent report whoever Mr. Jones was sang
'Home Sweet Home.'" Alas! here again
Is the untoward fato of the actor "who
ever Mr. Jones was I" Why, sir. Mr.Joncs
was long the dulcet tenor of the old Park
and Iu the Eugllsh vcrsiou ot Maianulhlt
singing of thearla, "Morning its sweets Is
flinging," was the delight of the lovely
belles oflong ago whose grandchildren are
the matrons of to-day.
For ten years Payne led tho same Bedouin
life, full of literary am! humane and ro
mantic projects, but he never again wrote
or did anything memorable. In iSV, he
was appointed consul at Tunis, where, in
1852, "au cxilo from home," he died.
There is au inevitable melancholy in the
impression ol such a life, yet it is not clear
that Payne was especially unhappy. Hut
he was always a rover, and was never mar
ried, aud often knew the pinch of poverty.
After thirty years Mr. Corcoran, of Wash
ington, who personally knew hlui, obtain
ed permission to remove his remalu, and
in June they will be laid finally in Oak Hill
Cemetery, near Washington.
Except for his one song, the name of
Payne would be preserved only in blogra-

traditions of the theatre. But his son? Is
that one touch of nature which makes the
world kin. It is the frailest thread of
which fame was ever spun. For the poetry
Is but a rude expression of a common sen
timent, and it would hardly have aroused
attention except for the pathetic melody to
which It was adapted. That touches every
hearer, as It touched Payne when he heard
it sung by the Italian girl. He vindicated
his claim to the name of poet by his per
fect interpretation of the sentiment of the
music. It was iifthe year that he died that
New York heard Jenny Llnd sing his song
There was a simple, honest, generous peas
ant air in her aspect, and when her mar
vellous voice broke Into a ringing shower
of limpid thrills in
"The birds singing gayly that come at ray call."

There arc a hundred monuments of dis
tinguished men in Washington who were
very conspicuous, aud some of whom per
formed great and memorable services. Hut
no monument there will he visited by a
greater throng of pilgrims, and no memory
will appeal more tenderly to all of them,
than those of the wide-wandering actor
who lived and died alone, and of whom
nothing hi remembered but that he vvrote
one song. JTiiW Katy Chair, in farnr's

Gain-Seville, Tx., May, 14tb. 1883.
This little city Is bavlog a wonderful im
provement boom this spring. Like Wichi
ta we arc also to be blessed with a street
railway, water works, etc. Tbe fever for
bettering their earthly possessions In the
way of costly residences is upon some of
our well-to-do cowmen. John Stone, living
four miles north of the city, has lately been
struck- by the fever. When be gets through
witli his Intended improvements, be will
have spent near f 100,000. His fish pood,
pagoda and tniniture park, will cost blm
over 15,000. Tben bis fine residence, bis
Japanese pagoda (summer house) tbe tin
ning alone of the pagoda costing $100 bis
stables, three or four out-bouses for bis
workmen, his towers and wind rngtnesand
long driving lanes, all yet to be completed,
and iu tho most costly manner, will, when
finished, be one of tbe finest country resi
dences in Cooke county ; unless Bud Wil
son, another cow man worth half a million,
takes it into his bead to cap John, lor Dud
la also making almost tbe tame Improve
ments, and his residence la only two miles
north of this city. Both have countless
feet of pipe underlying the surface ol tbeir
parks and lawns, and numerous hydrants,
fountains, etc., also telephone connection
with the city. Next in the list comes Andy
Addington, who has bought ground just
ou the outskirts of the city, near tbe Gaines
ville Blooded Stock Driving and Racing
Park. Ills modest improvements will reach
near $12,000. Extras, according to con
tractors, will twin that amount. His brother
Zack will also build, but south of tho city.
Ills rcsldcnco to cost between $30,000 and
915,000. This is tbe instructions he cave
Architect Kane, ol Fort Worth In tbe
city, Jlr. John Belcher has now in course of
erection, a residence that is to cost $30,000.
Mr. Itonerill, whose grounds stand diago
nally from Wilson's and Addington's, is
erecting thereon the foundation for his res
idence. The cost of this to he $20,000.
(Ily the way this is the first job that I bid
on for the tin work for our firm, and bad
plenty of competition, but "got there Ell,
.Mr. A. A. Green's residence, $7,000 Includ
ing extras, Is about completed. This was
my second contract for the tin work, which
alone amounted to $477. Tben follows Ike
Cloud's. His Is a modest $15,000 bouse, In
the heart of tbo city. A Fort Worth con
tractor secured this job. Outside of the
Belcher house. I have successfully bid lor,
and obtained the tin work on all the other
residences for our firm, and bidding wai
lively. So score one for "Kansai Frank."
Strange to relate, but true to the dot la (as
certained through inquiry) that all tbo men,
who arc putting up these costly structures,
are northern men; and nine-tenths of our
first-class contractors and mechanics are alto
from that region. We have plenty of peo
ple here from Georgia, Alabama and Miss
issippi, but nono of them bave tbe push
and snap that is characteristic of those from
other States. Next week I will bave a
chance to bid on the new school bouse. It
is to cost $20,000.
John Stone is a young man of about 28
years. Five years ago he hi.d nothing,
Some one hacked bim for $5,000. With tbia
he went into the Nation and speculated In
cattle. The sudden rise in stock gave blm
considerable means. Three years later be
owned a ranch and stock. Not long ago
he borrowed $50,000, and invested ft In a
stocked ranch. This be sold out for $250,,
000, clearing $200,000. Only a few days
ago l learn that he made $150,000 more on
peculating. So much for pluck.
Bud Wilson, four years ago, wasn't worth
a dollar, and bad no outlook to replenish
his treasury. To-day bis paper It good for
hall a million. All made In apecnlating.
Nearly all stockmen, or cowmen aa they
call them here, have indictments against
them at every court for stealing. It is a
common practice to brand a large brand
over1 a smaller one, If It will completely
cover. A cowboy is not rated high if be
can't steal more cattle in a month than hi
grub amounta to in a year, for hia boss.
Mr. Wyatt Wllllaraj.a young stock, or cow
man, worth about $100,000, bas only seven
teen indictments against bim now. A fine
field, no doubt, for lawyers here, and I
gtiess there are plenty to skim tbe cream.
Speaking of lawyers reminds me of a Mr.
' Hell. He came to Gainesville as a poor
i young man, and took a position aa waiter
at one or our hotels. He tben studied law,
was admitted to tbe bar, became prosecut
ing attorney, which position be threw np
in order to turn bis attention strictly lo

THE MCAHMAMtr PARIS.
31. Delbler, the Paris executioner, enjoys
a sinecure. Since M. Gravy waa called to
to the presidency or the Republic, the Ideas
of Victor Hugo have been allowed to pre
vail, and no executions have taken place.
The actual guillotine differs con
siderably from that which is seen at Ma
dame Tussaud'a and Is supposed to have
rendered such sanguinary service to tbe
first Bepubllcans. Aa Monsieur de Paris
remarka. It Is perlection itself, and none
but a churl would refuse to place bis neck
in the, lunette on a line with tbe bright,
sharp knives which are kept locked in a
feather ease at tbe private residence ot tho
dreaded official, close to La Koquelte. M.
Delbler Is a quiet man, impressed with the
functions intrusted to him. Ho Is or a re
tiring disposition, as If aware that the of
fice he holds places him beyond tbe pale of
ordinary men, and causes bim to be looked
down, on by tbe rest of his fellow creatures.
No one would think, while visiting him In
bit qulefhome, that he haa been tbe means
of hurrying hundreds Into eternity, or
would remember bow Troppman, tb mur
derer of tbe Kinck family, bad bilUn bim
to the bone when be was aasisting at the
execution of one of tbe most cold-blooded
assassins or modern times. Tbe apartment
he occupies Is over tbe stable where the
guillotine Is kept, packed away until it Is
wanted for use, and those who describe
their visits to the executioner, and relate
bow be cut a truss of straw in two to show
tbe working or bis instrument, bave every
reason to be thankful for a well developed
Imagination. M. Delbler is a tailor by
trade, and more than one workman In tbe
quarter ol La Koquette bas bad bis clothes
repaired by blm. He ia uot a communica
tive man, and tbe idea that bis name will
appear iu print makes him uervom, for on
one or two occasions be has been taken to
task by tbe Parisian journalists, who bave
accused him of unnecessary roughness.
His looks hardly bear out such a charge, for
there Is nothing of tbe bully about blm,
and those wbo meet blm of a Sunday after
noon, when he takes hit wife out fora walk
with bim along the boulevards, would lake
bim to be au ordinary workingtnan bent on
There Is nothing picturesque about bim.
Tbe tights and tbe red leather jerklu of bis
predecessor are quite unknown to bim. He
thinks it due to the solemnity of the occa
sion when bis services are required, to
wear a suit or black clothes and a stove
pipe hat. He is a plain matter-of-fact man,
b jne too brave If what hit wife says is true.
He requires, according to her version, a
considerable number of "Dutch drops" be
fore his courage can be raised to concert
pitch. He accepted the post on tbe resig
datlon or M.Uciudrlch, whose valet he had
been Tor many years. Custom bas not
bardened bim. He seems to leel tbe re
sponsibility of shedding tbe blood of a lei-
low creature, more especially in cases with
prisoners like Moreau, the herbalist of
Saint Denis, wbo declared at the foptof the
guillotine that he died innocent. The con
demned man is brought out of La Koquette
with bis coat thrown over bis shoulders to
bide tbc.vest and shirt which b.tve been cut
away so as not to impede the downward
stroke of the knife. The coat is removed
wben tbe criminal is pushed agaiust the
plank which thruws him forward on to the
gullotlne, and Ibis garment Is the only
guerdon of the executioner.
