" 'Tis very weary waiting,"
Said the blue-eyed maid to ine.
And she glanced at her Iat new suitor
And then at the restless sea ;
And she glanced at the rose fading
In her Kurdn fair and bright.

and the vision has grown upon me until
the walls stretched away into a border

unreal groups of figures, where a rustle
of pine 3s ceahi, atid tiielloW sunshine
i rradiated the grave of the man who had
desired that his friends should so assem

But the service over, our spiritual
wings were quickly folded, and we joined
the stream flowing back to the house.

one of fabled magnificence for people

flocked to the Unheard-of festivity of a

soon filled, and the waiters plying busily
between iliein and the kitchen. The text
of the minister was liferallv followed out!
whether or hot any reffard was paid to
its real significance.
We placed several of the young ladies
in the shadow of the chimney, and I held
her parasol over my charmer, at the same
time that I was endeavoring to wait on
her and feed myself. One thing baffled
my Ingehu'ity for a moment. The butter
was of the Consistency of seet oil ; bitt

his nose broad, and an eip.essi.jii cf
honesty, kindness of heart, geniality
that could not be hid, but that burst re

COLUMBIA, TENNESSEE, FRIDAY,
TBLLIXO A STORW

Dan Halloway was a railroad conduc
tor, whd used to make his headquarters lii
iiichmoud, Indiana, H5was iqfoduced
to a lot of mad wags who rendezvoused
at Bill Bennet'a livery-stable one day,
where. ther played practicHl jokes on
each other when there was no strapger
handy. , One. of.vteirBtandingjokie
etjneieteil in beguiling a:i iitiBiispxtih
man into telling a story, and then get
ting up and walking off, one after an
other, leaving the poor fellow to conclude
his tale to Bennett's dog, blinking and
dozing under the stove.
Halloway was received by the crowd
with gfeat cordiality, A drink was pro
posed iri a neighhrtr'injf; &tiotn, and after
that was disposed tff ilicy f ettirHed , i3
Bennett's, office J. and jiine onefold a
shdrt Story jst M draW the conductor
on to his fate. The trick succeeued,
and Halloway started off with a story
about an adventure he once had with a
wolf. Before he had got on the track of
the wolf, or had even suspected there
was n wolf in the neighborhood, one of
his listeners ros; tlowly up ont of bis
chair, etretcltcd himself, gaped, ithd
fslkd out yMth , greift declaration,
ban didn't !nd thfo mijbit, btt Rpt
right on with his story, just as though
ther wasn'jj a wolf within a thousand
miles of him. Vlien he. finally came
suddenly on the wolfs tral another one
of his listeners got up and sauntered
lazily out, with his hands in his pockets,
whistling a few low, soft notes. Dan's
eye kindled a little at this, but he said
nothing. Indeed he was so busy press
ing after the wolf there was not time to
indulge in any parenthetical rematksi
Jfe had to attepd strictly, to bnstivvwt or
tlie wolf would. escape liini. , ,
Then, by taking a shorter cut thaii the
wolf was pursuing, Dan managed" to
head off bis wolfship in a, very narrows
passage between overhanging rocks, aiid
it was evident that he had reached a
crisis in the story of the most inter
esting and oxcitiug character. It is not
often that a story-teller is able to corner
up a wolf so effectually as Dan had done
then and there, and one would have
thought every listener would have been
riveted to the spot until the denoue
itieht was feaehed. One brok the riv
ets, itoWeVeF, ahd walked away in the
deepest meditation. Only One: other'
listener wa-3 Jeff how be?(c3 jibntieH,
n& i'iii Ha Haliotray was clinching tiiej
wolf, and both were rolling on the ground
in a life-and-death struggle, that man
appeared . suddenly to ( recollect soine
ihing.iie ntust irro right off ,aitd attend to,
a'd he tieLt, leaving Bennett aiohe
with the story-teller. Mr. Halloway
paused, then keeping onc hand on the
wolf, stt he wouldn't get away, he
reached around back with his other
hand and drew out a revolver, which he
pointed at Bennett's bead, remarking
quietly, " Tlie'c dW, my fristjr lriend,
fin d d if you dolrt slay afld hcttr" the
rest of this wolf-story ! "
And f Williatil staid. Yes, he staid
arid Suddenly bcrafce hiteresteH. Hal
loway could easily have killed tjiaji Wolf
in two minutes, the way be had the ad
vantage of him, but he delayed the
finale so as to instruct Bennett with re
gard to the habits and .peculiarities "of
the animal, dwelling at length upon his
iantaj h'nd the various means employed
by hunters in capturing or killing li'lH;
He did this because Bennett appeared
to be so thoroughly absorbed in the story,
don't you see? Seemed as though he
couldn't get enough of it. Bennett's
friends in a nelghlioring saloon, whither
they had repaired, eXpeclillg the fallroitd

It has been assumed, too na.-t!!y
think, says the Boston Advertiser, that
the growth of the country in population
has received a serious check. This con
clusion is based on the returns of a part
of the censuses taken last year. We

One other made an inumeralir'f in. 1874.
Of the whole fourteen, e leven are sup

not so. The census of Texas is an esti

a fair way of getting before CbCgfe?! in'

of a well-informed Wiii'gton correspon

United , State8 shall guarantee that the
Texas I'&ciic C'&jwiiy will par .the 5
per cent, annual interest on tiit-ir bof ds
(issued at the rate of not more than $?5,

of twenty-five years. The government,
bawever, is not asked to guarantee the
pitjme'rtt ef the principal of the bonds,
sfnd riot cveri td iftftfiTe interest
beyond wehty-ie years. This N a frcfy
airierefit atid less dangero'us obligation
than that assumed by (he gA ernmen't
jn the iudorsement of the Union Pacini;
lucHlHz, o4. wi the present . commercial
and financial iiiU,"-t'f i" his yountry
the government could well afford io Ssi
sunie twice as great an obligation for the
sake of helping to set the industrial ma
chinery in motion again, as well as to
ri'l j great enterprise which will open a
tfctief toHrdry bn that opened br the
Union 'Pacific, if is id . c ; regre'ffed
and. yet ferhaps is uhavtiidabfe thai the
irirfec will cornc before Congress some
what in the characiei of d potrtjcal party
schemcj and also of a sectional interest,
as ' will be introduced and most strongly
advocated by soL'th?" democrats; and
for this reason it is to lie feared ilu.t th?
opposing pecuniary interests in the other
Pacific roads will bring every influence
to bear to make it unjiopular with Ke
publicans. . It is possible, however, that
this will be so plain that it will have just
fhe rercrse effect from that intended.
But aside .fiovi the j'irti.-an and sec
tional interests, the Texa3 Pacific, if co'tn
pleted, would be of sufficient benefit fo
the nation , at large to fully justify all the
iiiuor.rf,;!'?nt the projectors pootKisc to
ask. Even if the govci,Hre"t should
guarantee the interest on 100,000,000 of
bonds for the completion of both the
Texas and the Northern Pacific, and even
if the government should be obliged to
pay the interest for ten years, the 5,oor
000 per annum thus paid out would be
more than balanced by the stimulation
of industry that would result from tbc
work. For over two years in this country,
with abundance of unemployed capital,
frith hundreds "f thousands of unem
ployed hi I tore rs find lii'-'-liaitics, and in
exhaustible supplies Of every roiuisite
hi4 n.t'at':r?al, business ha.5 been depressed,
not "because there was aiiy gfeitt bss o'r
destruction of capital, but because the
whole bnsiness community wits demoral
ized, and had lost confidence. This de
moralization lias continued until every
man who is in debt is being squeezed out
by the shrinking in value of his property.
The courts are full of bankrupt cases,
and the property of debtors is steadily
being handed over to the comparatively
small but powerful class of money lend
ing capitalists who, as a rule, arc in favor
of ?pecie resumption and a narrow-minded
system" df fa.ii?, "economy," which they
style " pbjiticai ecoiiomy," trtft tthkh i
iu fact only partisan economy. This con
dition of things has so demoralized that
large enterprising class who do go into
debt, and tints do build up and improve
the country by the risk of fhcif fort't'iVes
in all sorts of enterprises, that everything
is at a stand still.. When the whole mass
is thus demoralised, n'otbinsc less than
the government, representing the wioic
people.can infuse confidence again. There
is good reason for thinking that the Texas
Pacific company stands a fair chance of
getting the required government aid, and
jf jt should, this circumstance, t.igetlief
with the stimulating cWl of tlie cen
tennial exhibition, will make 187Ga year
