"FOR LOVE OF SUSY."
'For Love shall still 1m Inrd o( all." Sir
The October haze hung like a gauze ol
gold about tbo purple tops of tho lou-lylng
country hills. 1'crched among them shone
the pale stone will ami ornate roof of a
superb country scat. Ilehind it rolled and
rumbled the glistening river, and before it,
almost under the pretty bay-windows, ran
the elm-flanked, common highway.
A man, very young and very handsome,
with brown, dreamy eves, and a proud,Orc-
cian head, rode by that day.
Up looked up aud save a lady standing on
a balcony above him. About her ticculy
figure fell fold of lustreless amber silk and
foam-pale lace. Her Spanish eyes and deli
cate, haughty features smiled down upon
him from behind an exquisite fan; she
wore white rocs on her bosom, and an ar
row ol gold and diamond held back from
her dusky brows the glossy plaits of her
"It is Madeline," he thought, drawing
rein. "She 1 very beautiful. They told
run that she is past thirty, but she looks
younger than I, and I am twentj-onc. It
won't be very hard for me to obey my tin
cle, I fancy."
The wealthy and eccentric old uncle who
had reared and educated him, bad sent Al
gernon Heath to this elegant place, with a
friendly letter of Introduction, ostensibly
given that his beloved nephew might havo
a week of change and quiet, but really, pri
vately and Lommandingly, that the nephew
should meet, woo, win and marry a beauti
ful creature whose lands and lucre should
be worthy of his great expectations.
A glance from those brillant c) es told the
young man that he had reached his destina
lie had never seen the lady before, but It
was flatteringly evident that she knew him,
and was a bit merry because through his
ignorance or the locality, be bad missed the
lie returned her smile, lifted his bat gal
lantly, wheeled his horse, and rode back to
the gloomy iron gate, guarded by two bronze
"I have crossed tbo Rubicon," be thought
again, as the big. grim gates clanged behind
the beelsof bis uncle's fav orltc black. "Mc
thlnks when I rccross I shall carry to my
good relative the message : "I came, I saw,
1 conquered 1'"
Algernon Heath was only twenty-one. lie
had bad bis fancies and follies, but be knew
nothing of the love that can make a lifetime
of misery or a single day of rapturous bliss
ful peace. He was doing tbcbiddingof one
who bad enervated his line, strong nature
by too much case and delicious living that
Ue was welcomed warmly and his stay
was prolonged unreasonably; and he left
only to return in a few weeks to claim the
Spanish-eyed Madeline as bis bride.
Algernon Heath was proud of his hand
some, stylish wife. She was pissloiutely
fond of him, and alas I quite as passionately
Why should she not be this world-worn
coquette of thirty, who bad snared the fe
vered fancy of bis youth, well knowing that
his untouched beait might some day thrill
to the claim or a fresh and truo affection.
But they were reasonably content In tbelr
marital bonds lor ten quiet years.
Out of Madeline's money her husband had
had a prodigal share, and she never re
proached him for bis lavish extravagance.
He was always kind and true and devoted.
and surely she could ask no more.
Ucr father died the first year after her
marriage; but Algernon's uncle still lived,
boarding his millions for a munificent final
bequest to a favorite charitable Institution,
It was said and believed.
Madeline believed it, and with the instinct
of jealousy, guessed that the eccentric old
gentleman bad planned ber marriage with
hia young nephew for a purpose or his
"Ue Imagined that a rich wife would rid
him of Algernon's extravagant demands for
money," she thought bitterly when she felt
death creeping through ber veins. "Ue
knew bli plans, of course. If my husband
married me for love, be will never take an
other wifo when I am gone. If be married
mc for my worldly possessions, I have a way
to thwart bis sordid, heartless desires."
And so Madeline Heath made just such a
will as rich and aged men often make wbo
have taken tiuto themselves very young,
very poor, and very unthinking wives.
And with Ibis jealous bittcrnesss in her
soul she died, leaving to her husband. If be
remained unwedded, the whole of her for
tune ; but should be marry again, be would
be penniless as be was the day he led ber to
"l'oorMaddle!" was the only comment
made by the husband who bad faithfully
been fond of ber in his way. "I bave never
yet seen a woman her peer in beauty and

He was not gloomy and lugubriously un
congenial! certainly not. The world
thinks no better of us for bearing out our
solemn sorrows and displaying them with
the purple amaranths pinned on our velvet
But Algernon Ueato accepted bis wealth
and bis freedom la an easy way that seemed
selfish if not enjoyable.
It was another October day, when the lus
cious, rosy applea were dropping ripe from
the branches, and the scarlet leave were
drifting, breexe-borne through the yellow
bate, that he met Susie Wright.

ber bosom the held a panting, snow-white,
"How could yon fire at such a harmless
thing!" she asked, angrily.
"Pardon me," returned Algernon Heath,
"with anxiety. "I certainly would not
have done so, had I thought I might have
made you a target."
"Oh," said the girl, conscious for tho first
time of a sting of pain, and, glancing at
ber arm, through which the random ball
had plowed a ragged, bloody furrow ; and
then (.he turned and sped away, quite as
shy as the scared rabbit she still held.
Algernon Heath was byno means content
ed until be bad ascertained tho name and
circumstances of the lovely creature wbo
had spoiled his cruel sport. These things
were ascertainad speedily; Susy Wright
was only the poor dependent of a small far
mer in the neighborhood.
But these facta did not prevent bim from
making an apologetic call the next morning
followed by many other. And these calls
were repeated until Susy Wright knew that
she loved the rich man who loved her.
And yet Algernon Heath said nothing to
bind in a betrothal thceccretof their hearts.
Susy only knew his affection from the deep,
unwavering tenderness of hi brown, large
eyes, the clinging touch of his warm, caress
ing fingers, and the passionate, insidious
tones that uttered these vague, poetic say
ings, such as never can he repeated In senti
ment, for a trusting woman's defense.
He loved her, and bis heart know it, but
to marry her and give up the case and lux
ury that had become part or his life, was
quite another question.
Ot course Susy knew nothing of that fa
tal will, nor the equally fatal conditions that
held him to his pleaunt life ol indolence
"His manucr Ion aril me Is always full of
unspoken pa-sion. Ue will soon ask me to
be bis wife. And what will I say? He it so
rich and manly, and I am so poor," she
thought one evening, as she came, down
from her room through th; sombre hall, at

low color of her flowing hair, and faintly
strewn with bud like tho flax-flower blue

She drew her fleecy white wool shawl
about her graceful shoulders, as a str.iug,
perfumed vv ind swept up from the open door
at tho farther end of the halt.
Noiselessly, on her vilvct-shod feet, flic
advauccd to close it, when she heard the
voico ol Algernon Ucath answering some
thing said by her cousin.
"You arc quite right. Susie should have

I never could love a human being. But if I
marry her I shall forfeit my fortune. I have
no trado or profession. I bave lived a life

the fault of false training, I suppose. Since
I knew her, I have turned my thought to

his money, and of which I know something
but as yet I have failed in my most promis

laughed a bard, weary, cynical laugh. "For
myself, I might face poverty, but I could not
see tbo woman I loved, want for the com
monest necessaries of life. I must not ask
Susy to share misery with mc."
"You have greatly wronged her, Mr.
Heath." replied her couiin, "for you have
certainly won her affections.

shawl about her shoulder, and stole away

trunk shook and quivered, and then swayed
toward the hedge.

And sheds Its dying light across the skies ;
Its crimson bues and amber light
Fade in the dusk of coming night ;
The last faint gleam ol daylight dies
For us tbe same.
The same stars beam on you and mr,
Twinkling adown the silent summer night,
Across the lawn and meadow grass,
Where dew-drops glisten as wo pas,
Bathed in a flood of silvery light,
For us tbe same.
The same day dawns on you and me,
Bringing its cares, iu joys.andbittertears
Its blighted hopes, despairing pain,
Its high ambition all In vain ;
Forming tbe treadmill round of dull, dead
For us the same.

And seems to whisper of a far-off shore,
Where love is evermore immortal blest,
When death shall lead u into perfect rest.

just the same way with everything.

Of course, with all this, things could not

Already be had lost large sums and agoodly

The neighbors were beginning to put their
heads together and whisper that things were
going badly with Christian Lass, and that
he had certainly sold himself, body and soul
to the evil one.
A lawyer of bad reputation, who came
from the city, was often closeted with Chris
tian and the land agents, and whenever
Christian returned from these interviews he
was still moro depressed and gloomy.
Oue day tbe men came with all kind of
surveying instruments, walked about the
fields and took measures, went into the sta

Christian's farms quickly passad into their

GEN. SHERMAN AS A LAWYER.
A reporter for tbe 7Wfcs met, a few days
ago, a gentleman who resided in Leaven
worth, twenty-five years ago. During the
conversation tbe approaching retirement of
Gen. Sherman from the command of the
army was mentioned, and the map from
Kansas was reminded of an event which
was undoubtedly the turning point In his
career, and, while it probably spoiled a poor
lawyer, resulted In giving to the world one
of tho most distinguished military chief
tains. The story goes that the first day of
February, 1817, a co-jiartnershtp was form
ed at Leavenworth, Kansas, between three
lawyers, tbe firm name being Sherman,
Ewing & McCook William Tecumseb
Sherman, his brother-in-law, Thomas Ew
ing, and Dan McCook being the individual
members. An oflice was opeced in tbe sec
ond story of an old frame building which
threatened at any time lo be taken by tbe
vigorous winds from jts perch ou tho bluff,
which commanded a view ofthorand
sweep of the Missouri river for miles above
and below the incipient city, and land it
on the levee below. Tbe second member of
the firm has become famous In political cir
cles, and, it is conceded, wa the only law
er ol tho trio, hi father having been ac
credited with the poiseislou ol the finest
legal mind of tho country In his day; but
the son was even then disposed to dabblo
Iu politics, and an additional inflation for
real estate speculation kept his mind almost
entirely from his law business. McCook
who was afterwards mortally wounded
while leading his brigade in a chargeat
KencsojW mountain bad beeu attending to
court business, and upon Sherman devolv
ed the easy task of attending to the office
business. Ue found that time dragged
heavily on his hands, and when not sitting
in bis dingy, smoky den, with Icet elevated
and chair tipped hack, gossiping with any
one who might happen in and, having an
abundant fund of stories, generally more
pointed than chaste, thcro was generally no
lack of visitors the young lawyer busied
himself in planting fruit trees. It Is a fact
tint he never tried but one case in court.
Ue has referred to the matter in hi me
moir, but has evidently been guided by a
treacherous memory, and fails to tell the
story as it is narrated by old residents of
Leavenworth, who thoroughly remember
tbe circumstances. The case wa an action
lor forcible entry and detainer, and Justice
Whitney was 'the magistrate before whom
it was brought. Tho plaintiff was repre
sented by one of those thoroughly repre
sentative frontier lawyprs keen, unscru
pulous in conducting thcircase,and relying
on carrying tho day by abuse and sarcasm
rather than by knowledge of law. Ue was
known as "Bill" l'lpher, and Is or was un
til recently still living around Leaven
worth. Ewing wa absent, and McCook
was busy, and Sherman reluctantly left a
choice party, who had been rcgalling them
selves upon his storios, and undertook the
defense. Pipbcr at once saw that he was
dealing with novice, and did not hesitate
to reap advantago from tho fact, in some
what vulgar parlance, he "mopped the
floor"' with the future warrior. He "wound
him up and wound bim down, scattered his
defenses, knocked the underpinning Irom
his breastworks," ridiculed bis feeble ef
forts to bring forth authorities, and, in
short, lell him utterly speechless by the
time the case was ended, so lar as related
to hia client's Interest. "By 1 Where's
McCook?" Is all that could be understood,
as he stumbled upstair from tbe basement
in which the honorable justice's court was
located. Ue reported bis defeat to McCook.
The latter was silent at tbe time, but the
following morning, after working all night
to help tho defendant move hi house to an
adjoining lot, he advised Sherman to "re
sume peach-tree planting." The fact dawn
ed upon Sherman's mind that he was not
made for a lawyer, and shortly after he ac

IN6ALLS ON MOBERN EDUCATI0N.
Senator Ingalls has written a two-columa
article for Mrs. Monroe's Quarterly oa
"Modern Education," which deserves more
attention than it will receive. Tbe key
note Is this : "I do not depreciate tbe Val
ue, tho solace of literary and classical
training; I would not part with my small
acquisition In this domain except upon
compulsion, but 1 believe I appeal to tbe
usual experience when I affirm that the
great mass of 'scholars,' passing Irom tbelr
monastic seclusion Into tbe burly burly of
active life, are soon convinced that there
has beed a mistake somewhere." Tbe gen
eral tenor of tbe article Is to prove that the
modern system of education is wrong,
which Is Illustrated in thla blast way:

EDfiAR ALLAN P8CS HOUSE.
Tbo Cottago in Fordham, New York,
which was occupied from 1847 to 1819 by
Edgar Allan Poe, wa told at auction, Sat
urday, for $3,700, under a mortgage fore
closure. The cottage Iielonged to the es
tate of Uenry 31. Vericn, and was sold by
order or Elliot Sandford. rcrercc. Tbe
mortgage and accrued Interest amount to
more 'than the price paid for tbo property.
The purchaser was Milton Stragg, one of
tbe heirs of the estate. The eottage is sit
uated upon tho King's Bridge road, which
winds upward, between moss-covered stone
walls and great old trees, through the vil
lage of Fordham. It I a quaint little one
story and a ball white cottage, with a
veranda on two sides, which I overgrown
with vines and flow era, and U embowered
In creen old fruit trees, on the crown of
tbe Fordham bill. Tho cottage I occupied
by an old Southern lady, Mrs. E. D. Dec
bcrt, who I an enthusiast upon tho sub
ject of Poe, as, Indeed, are all the old resl
dents of Fordham. Mrs. Dechert points
out the little room where Mr. Poe died.
wbilo her husband wa in the deepest pov
erty, with hi well-worn military cloak us
ed a a coverlet for the bed, and shows the
upstairs apartment where Poe wrote the
article which Mr. Clemm, hia laithlul
mother-in-law, took to the N'ef York mig
azines, not caring to trust htm amid the
temptation of the metropolis. Here the
poet wrote "Ulalume," after the death of
his wife, and, among other poems, "The
Bells," "For Annie." and "Aunahcl Lee.''
Hack of the cottage is the pine-shaded,
rocky knoll where Poe is said to hive been
in tbe babitof reclining and dreauiing day
dreams for hour together. From these
rock a pretty rural view Is obtained of
white cottages and church spires peeping
out from among green trees, within a cres
cent of blue-tinted mountain range. In
tho orchard back of the cottage, Poe in
itials which the poet cut In the bark of an
apple tree, may still be faintly distinguish
ed on the roti'li trunk. During the time of
hi residence iu Fordham, Poe' life was
embittered b poverty, and bin own inabil
ity to withstand the temptation which fin
ally brought bim to his death. Ue left
Fordham In the spring of 1849, and was on
bis way back, in the fall, lo take Mrs.CIemin
to Baltimore, when he was tempted into
his final and f ital dissipation. Mr. Clemm
sold hi furniture, after bis death, and sev
eral pieces of it are treasured in the neigh
borhood. Mrs. Uetibcti Cromwell, who
lives near the coltige, ha a clock, a chair
and a Bible, as relics of her gifted but un
fortunate neighbor. Mrs. Dechert ha been
very much annoyed lately, by curiosity
seekers, who wlh to be shown through the
premise once occupied by the poet. Tbe
remains ol Mr. Poo were in the vault of
tbe Valentine family, in Fordham, until
two vear ago, when they were taken up

As a west-bound train passed Ctp lioru
a large party of stranger crowded out on
on tbo platform and loudly expressed their
dissatisfaction at the scenery.
As they returned 10 their scat to enjoy a
a good jolly grumble, entirely oblivious of
the indignant glances of the native passen
gers, a meek-looking, gentle-voiced jour
nalist from Frisco approached Irom the
other end of the car and volunteered to
give the tourist some valutble facts con
cerning the country.
Next morning the journalist was inform
ed by the porter that a committee of gen
tlemen wished to sec htm in the baggage
car. As he entered the latter he found a
dozen travellers, all native, aud to the
manner born, waiting to receive him, bat
in band. Tho spokesman advanced and
"You were tho party who, were giving

"I am, sir," said the (ulll-driver, modestly-
"You told them, I understand," contin

"You divulged tho well known fict I hat

"I think I wedged that in," responded
the newspaper man.
"And we are informed that they all made
a memorandum of your statement that at
tbe Palace Hotel an average of two waller
per day were shot by the guest for bring

"And, finally, we believe that you are

A BOOTBLACK'S EULOSY.
"Brandy I dead 1"
So tbe men said, and so tbe women sald,
and so the children called to each other as
s piece of news.
A drunken good-for-nothing. A so-calljd
man whose brain bad become dissolved In
liquor, whoso mind was enfeebled, and who
bad disappointed everybody by not living
in tlm gutter, instead ot havipg- the rqof of
a tenement bouse over bis head.
Why should intone grieve when such a
vagabond pnv away? The world may
owe him room for hi bone to rest, lint
nothing further. So In "Brindy'" case
men said that lie wa well out of tbo wiy.
and women clattered their dishes In the
room below ami cared not for tire- presence
of the dead.
When the undertaker came to bear the
body away a dozen people crowded Into Ibe
room, and among them was a bootblack.
Some said that "Brandy" looked well In a
cofilu; other spoko lightly about his fare
having lost It ruddy color, ami the dead
pauper was no more ILan a dog In their
mimN, and why should he hav been J On
can be a man or be can be a vviraboiiil. If
he become a vagabond let him lo the rr
tpect ol men. All hail a heartle remark
but tho boblblack. He stood at the head of
the cofilu and looked from face to lace and
"Brandy wialowdowh and he died like
a beast, and you are all sneering at him t
Did any one among you ever give bim a
chancer Did men try to encourage him
and guide htm aright? I there a man In
this room who ever look him by the hand
aud spoke one kind wonl ? Didn't every
body ahue and illtreat him T Didn't every
body look upon him a a ilol"
There wa no answer.
"Aye, Brandy was low down!" whisper
ed the boy as be laid hi hand on tho rudln.
Ue was ragged anil hungry, and ponrand
homeless and without one sluglo friend.
What mau amon you could have stood out
against it any better? Poor old mau ! They
know all about it in he ivcn ! Let me help
to carry hlin down."
And wbcu tho dead h id been driven away
and tho boy had disappeared, more than
one man said:
"After all, vve might have made It easier
for the poor old man. I wonder that some
of us never sought to mike a man of him
Instead of helping him down." Vitrott
