VERMONT WATCIIMAN & STATE JOTJRNAI,, WEDNESDAY, AXJGUST 29, 1883.
Mr. Edllor The ple.miro and tlio profit,
too, of travel or tottr aro mucli onhanced by tho
new ncqualntances ono makos on tho way nnd
tho knowledge ho galns of men nnd cliaractor
(nd conduot. None that wo havo met on our
way has moro nmused and Instructed us than
tho ono wo mado on our return from l'uoblo,
Mnnltou and Denvor to Omaha. Tho subject
of lt cameaboard tho traln at Lincoln, tho np
ltal of Nebraska, whoro wo tattled for toa. Ho
was a man In tnlddlo llfo, of moro than raedlum
Btatuie, tn.ll, ln fact, of flne form, agilo In actlon
and of ongaglng addross. Courteous, frank
and toady ln conversatlon, n.ulck ln repartco
and reply, ho at once drow upon hlmself the
attentton of tho full car Into whlch ho cnmo.
IIow or why, wo can scarcely now rccall, ho
soon left the sent ho had takon wlth n com
panlon, and Bat down ln easy by-tho-way chat
or conversatlon wlth us. llo was, ns ho told
ns, a natlvo of Arkansas, brought up on tho
plantatlon, tho Inhorltor of slavos, and so
llnked wlth " tho pocullar lnstltutlon." When
the wnr camo on ho, wlth others ot hls age and
lank, cnllated ln the Arkansas cavalry and
formed a reglment, a klnd oljlcur de Us of tho
southern chlvalry ln whlch he had equal confl
dence and pride. Well, ln tho courso of thlngs,
and accordlng to thelr ambltlon, thlg glowlng
command confronted a moro sober reglment of
the northern cavalry. Our horo, for wo doubt
not at all he was truly such, descrlbed wlth
some partlcularlty, rauch f ranknoss nnd real
naivete, the ardor wlth whlch ho mado the
charge upon thocooler courage and calculntlng
bravery of the northern foe. He doubtcd not
at all but that he should swoop them up or
sweep them from the fleld at tho first onset,
and that hls brllllant charge wonld be a hey
day victory. But, contrary to all expectations,
hls assault wns upon a stone wall. Hls blgh
hopes wore suddenly cooled. Instoad of the
easy victory and hollday aftair he and hls gen
erous command expected, tho chlvalrous leader
and hls no loss chlvalrous followers wero takon
in and swooped up. A sabre stroke from hls
companlon du voyage the gentleman to whom
I have before alluded ns at first seated wlth
blm, and whom he tieated wlth marked respect,
Introdnclng hlm to me as " the sherlff of "
forced hlm to surronderasa " prisonorof wnr."
He bared hls head and ehowed me the scar of
the sabre stroke that brought hlm to terms.
Much of hls command was also takon wlth hlm.
The prlaoner of war Instead of being Incarcer
ated ln some Andersonvllle, was sont to hls
grandmother in Connecticut. She, a godly
woman, of whom he spoke wlth real fillal
affectlon and rospect, in duo timo persuadod
hlm to glvo up hls hopes of ilghtlng for fame
to enter upon a course of prepiiratlon for Ynlo
college and for the mlnlstry. Her pious wish
he so far complled wlth as to euter Yale nnd
qraduate ln the class of '73. But now, tho
chlvalrous llfe to whlch ho had been oarly
tralned, prevalled over tho prayors of hls ven-
erable mother. Breaklng away from tho
testraints of study at Vnle and godly an
cestry ln Connecticut, ho at length, wlth
hls captor, now hls companlon, "the sher
lff" enllsted wlth Cu9ter and followed thls
brave general and fierce Indlan fighter ln
hls campaigns tlll ho fell so sadly. The
Indlan warrlor could talk the Indlan lan
guage and tell of the hair-breadth escapes and
deeds of honor that characterize tho cam
paigns of Custer and hls devoted men. Of hls
general he spoke wlth the tonderest affectlon
and deepest respect, griovlng, as only he could,
at hls loss. Captured in hls chlvalrous llfo nt
the, South, findirig ln the end no heart to pur
iu'e frfc-peaceful course at tho North, hls Indlan
campaign wlth Custer flnished, what shall he
do now? Now he turns hlmself to the noblo
profesalon of the law, and, nfter some fittiug,
ls admltted to practice ln tho courts of Ne
braska, for the present bls home. He came
aboard the traln from the Bupreme court, in
eesslon at Lincoln, before whlch ho had that
very day argued hls " first case," and in re
gard to whlch he Bhowed just pride, and ln
testlraony of whlch ho courteously presented
us wlth the court docket, a printed pamphlet
of fifty or raore pages. We have sketched the
career of our car companlon thua far ns intor
estlng in ltself, yot as a klnd of introductlon
to what ls to follow. The subject of our narra
tlve was not only a scion ot the South, tralned
in one of the chtef seats ot learnlng at tho
North, perlltng hls llfo for the Natloa's safety
and honor, (or dlngrace, shall wosay?) in In
dlan campaigns, a counselor in one of her state
courts, but he was alsoa polittclan and a loyal
memberof the democratlc party a " demo
orat of the democratB." Thls he afllrmed
ottec, as lf to glve empbasls, as indeed it dld,
to what he sald ot princlples and partles. He
was as equally jealous for the honor and intog
rlty of our country as for the euccess of the
democrats. He scanned my polltlcal princl
ples, sounded mo as a republlcan, or "sprouted
me," as " Father Hunt," ihe pioncor in the
temperance work ln Pennsylvania used to say
of the test questlons he would ask of minlsters
and young theologlans. He lnquired care
fully after the way the tldo was setting In New
Kngland and New York wbether rlngs were
llkely to be broken and honest admlnlstratlon
prevall. ln regard to mon, ho sald: "Ityou
have nny of tried integrity that you can brlng
forward, we wlll glve tbem a hearty support."
Of Senator Edmunds he spoke wlth ndmlra
tlon and unqualified respect. IIo would llke to
eee hlm the cmdldate ot a reformed and na
tlonal party, the party of principle and not for
power. He further spoke ot hlmself as repre
sentatlve ot many in the South and West, nnd
abjured ns to go home and repeat what he, a
democrat, had sald, use the utmost to organize
such a party, and brlng forward Senator Ed
munds as a man.flt to lead lt and prevall. We
can report only the substance and eplrlt of the
vereatlle and enthnslastlc conversatlon of thls
man that we met ln the cars. He was as rendy
in theology and rellglon as on war and politlcs,
eclence, learnlng and law, We bade hlm adieu
late nt nlght in the darknesa ot Omaha,
amused, lnstructed and sorrowlng wlthal, that
we should see hls faco no more. a. d. it.
The Ludera, LntherH tho name is tho same
as Lothair were a family of peasants at Moehra
or Moere, a vlllago on the BklrtH of tboThurln
glan forest, ln the Klectorato of Saxony. " I
am a peasant's son," Luther wrote; " father,
grandfather, great-grandtather, woro all peas
ants." The tather, Hans or John, was n mlner.
He learned hls trade ln a copper mlno nt Moehra,
but removed ln early mnnhood to Elsleben,
where business was more uctlve; nnd there, be
ing a tough, thrifty, Industrioua man, he dld
well for hlmself. The Moehra people wore a
hard raco what the Scotch call " dour "and
Hans Luther was one ot them, Ile marrled a
peasant woman llke hlmself, and from thls
marrlaj;. , now just 400 yoors ogo, on the 10th
ot November, 1483, came lnto the world at
Elsleben hls first-bom son, Martln. Six montbs
later, stlll followlng hls mintog work, Hans
moved hls family to Mansfeld, n few mllea dla
tant ln a valley on the slopes ot the Hartz
ilountalns. He continuod to prosper, He
worked hlmeolt wlth hls plck ln the mlne
shafta. The wlfo cut and carrled tbo wood for
tho cottago. Hans, Bteadlly rldng, bocamo the
proptlotorof ncouplo of smeltlng furnacesj ln
1491 ho bccnme ono of the four Church Kldors
what wo should called Chnrch Wardens. Ile
drow the nttontlon of Count Mansfeld hlmaelf,
whoso castlo ovorhung tho vlllago, nnd wna
hold Inhlgh csteem by hlm. Melancthon, who
knew both Hans nnd hla wlfo, admlred nnd
honorod both of thom. Thoir portralts woro
taken nttorwnrd by Cranach the foaturesof
both oxpresslng honesty, plety, nrJU clear intel- I
llgence. Martln was tho eldest of aeven chll
dren; ho was brought up klndly, of course, but
wlthout speclal tendornosfl. Ho honorednnd
lovcd hls parents, ns he wns bound to do, but
he thought ln hls own later llfe that they had
been overharsh wlth hlm. Ho romcmbercd
thnt ho had been boaten more thnn onco for
trlllos, worse thnn hls fault desorved. Of tho
vlllago school to whlch ho was oarly sent hls
rocollectlons were only palnful. Ho was taught
to rcnd nnd wrlto, nnd thore was what pre
tondod to be nn eleraentary Latln class. But
tho school-mnstcrs of hls chlldhood, he Bnld,
wero jallers and tyrants, and the schools wore
little hella. A senso of contlnued wrotchedness
and lnjustlco welghed on hlm as long as ho
remalned thero, and mado hls chlldhood mls-
erable. But ho must have shown talents
whlch encouraged hls father to epare no cost
on hls son's educatlon that hls own scanty
menns would nllow. When he wns fourteen
he was sent to a more expenslvo school nt
Mngdeburg, nnd thence, nfter n year, toa stlll
better school nt Elsenach, whoro he wns taught
thoroughly well, nnd hls mlnd begnn to open.
Rellglon, ns wlth all Biiperlor lads, bocamo tho
first thought wlth hlm. Ho nskod hlmself
what God was, what he was, and whnt God re
qulred hlm to do; and horo tho'lmpresslons of
hls home experlences began to weave them
selves into what he learned from books.

K. J. Burdette, ln the Philadelpbia Timcs,

has gone out lnto tho lenfy forest.
The dark object in the heavens elght hundred
miles wlde and two thousand miles long, Is n

See, the llghtning haa struck the cako. It wlll
never strlke anythlng else. Thero standa tbe

slmttered and bllghted, llea the thunderbolt.
Under the cedar tree ls a dylng dog. He got
ln the way nnd tho superlntendent felled hlm

The tall figure wrapped ln the ghostly drapery
ot a water-soaked llnen duster, leading the
way to tho cars, is the toacher of the young
ladies' Bible clasa. Hls influcnce wlth that
class is gone forever. Tbe young ladies wlll

they could throw hlm the ropo the storm came l
up and the plcnlc adjourned slne dle and itne

to dlsappear before ho comcs down. He has

No Spots Tlierc.
It bor'an to rain acain soon after dinner
yesteruay, anu a disgusted citizen who
came down on a woodford avenue car
beside an old man remarked : 11 1 presnme
this is owing to those spots on tbe suu."
" lley l " called the otuer, as he put his
hand to his ear. " Spots on the sun I "
yelled the other. "HeyY Spots? Where
are the spots ' " Un tue sun l " " lleyY "
"Unthesuni" me old man rose up,
crossed the car. and looked out of tho
window and squinted around for a min
ute, and then ruturned and said : " Can't
see the Bun 'tall. IIow did the spots come
there ? " "1 don't know." Hey ? " I
don't know." " Have you seen 'em 7
" No." " You have. eh V " I said no."
" Oh, you haven't I What was your ob
ject in telling me there were spots on the
sun l I am not so old that 1 permit any
one to mako a fool of me I " Tho other
now looked out of the window and as
snmed a careless air, but the old man was
right after him with : " lou come into a
car when 1 am minding my own business
and begin to talk about spots on the sun.
Who are you, sir ? Did you want to get
me up to picK my pocKet, t " " xney
say the rainy weathor comes from the
spots on the sun," ezplalned the other.
" Who saya so ? Name the man I I'm
around all the time, and I haven't beard
of any spots on the sun I lf you think
vou can work any game on me, you are
badly sold I " The citizen got up to
change his seat, but the old gent pulled
him down and said : " lou wanted to
work some sort of a game on me, and
know it. If I evercatch you within a rod
of mo again 111 tie you up m a knot in
two minutes I I '11 put spots on you till

break and got out, and though he had no
umbrella, he dropped oC in the midst of
the rain with the look of a man glad to
make tho exchange. He had just reached
tho curb when the old man came to the
platform and called out : " Took me for a
