"Democracy is a eeuiiment'not to be appalled

rowers to no danger, oppresses no weakness. Fear
less, generous and humane, It rebukes the arrogant.
cherishes honor, and sympathises Tilh the humble.
It asks nothing but what it concedes; it concedes
nothing hut what it demands. Destructive only of
despotism, it is the solo conservative of liberty, la
horand property. It is the sentiment of freedom.

Old Michael K. Lawler, who went into
tho war as Colonel of the "bloody ISth
Illinois;'' fought in all the hardest buttles,
and came out as he went in a Colonel, has
been living a quiet, unobstrusive life, ever
since the close of the war, in Gallatiu
county. Quite recently lie has come to the
tmrlace as a candidate for County Commis
sioner of his county ; and as he is the same
staunch old Democrat he always was, the
Democracy of old Gallatin should sec to it
that the veteran hero is elected by an over
whelming majority. He has deserved well
of his country; but has asked and received
Mr. F. 31. Pickett announced tho sus
pension of the Shawnee Herald two or three
weeks ago, alleging as a reason for the ex
trctne measure, a lack of support. But
there seems to have been an indisposition
on the part ot the leading Democrats of the
county, to let the paper go down. At a
events it reached us again, last week, living
it its editorial masthead the name of Frank
AVinterberger. Mr. Winterberger is evident
ly a young man and a stranger in Shawnee
town; but lie writes up a fair local page
which, after all, is the greater dissideratuin
in a country weekly. Mr. Pickett is
writer of more than average ability, and
lms had much experience in the field of
journalism. We are somewhat surprised,
therefore, that he failed to make the Herald
Ex-Gov. Hk.ndhicks lias again declared
that, under no circumstances, will he accept
the second place on the Democratic presi
dential ticket of 1SS0. Mr. Hendricks
seems to take it for granted that of all the
eminent Democrats in tho United States,
nobody is thought of in connection with
tho "second place," but Thomas A. Hen
dricks; anJ that unless he refuses in time,
nnd persists in refusing to allow the use of
his name, it will inevitably be placed on
tho ticket. This U neither nv,vh'St nor be
coming. If Mr. Hendricks did not stand be
fore theAmencm people as one of the vil
lainously "gouged" candidates of 1S70, his
name would not be extensively used, even
in connection with th'j second place. That
ho addod n marked strength to the tiek-t
is shown in the fxt that a plain, hornet,
common sensed old fanner, carried
Indiana by a larger majority than he
secured; an 1 a all tho balance of the
western and northwestern states were
carried by the Republicans, it is entirely
safe to assume that tho nnmcWohl "Blue
jeans Williams" would have u'iveu as much
strength to tho ticket as was added by the
name of Mr. Hendricks. It is undeniable,
however, that Mr. Hcndrcks is one of the
great men of the day, is a pure statesman
and consistent Democrat; but his seeming
assumption that nothing short of constant
watchfulness on his part will keep his name
olf the Democratic presidential ticket, as the
candidate for vice president, is scarcely
warranted by the present aspect of affairs,
and ccrtiinly contributes notliing to his
strength as an aspirant for tho first place.
A LUCKY DIE.
"What the deuce ails me?'' Where am I,
anyhow? Wherever I am, springs and mat
tresses must bo scarce, for I know I am laid
on some mighty hard substance. Wonder
if it is on a dissecting board? Wonder if
I'm dead? I foci mighty like it. Maybe I

dooi opened, footsteps approached.
I felt a cloth removed from my face, and a
voice which I recognized as that of my in
tended father-in-law, said :
He hnsut changed much," and his
companion, wnose voice l recognized as
Sowerby's the undertaker, said lightly :
"There's just where you are mistaken,
Mr. Muffins; he looks a great sight better
dead than alive; but how does Priscilla feel
about it? Take on much, eh?"
"Oh! no, just enough to appear well!"
said the father of my affianced, with a
chuckle. "She never cared much for Smith;
'twas the stamps that she fancied. My
Priscilla is a practical girl and went m for
Ins dimes, lus carriage and greys, although
at the same time I must own she was
spooney on bald-pated Howard, the artist;
but lie s poor as Job s turkey, as the saying
"Well, she can have bim.now for all this
poor cuss, can't she'-' said Sowerby, beating
a tattoo with his digits on my chest.
"I presume so; but sc will wait till tin
year is up, for fear of gossip you know."
-But who gets the" money, seeing the
poor cuts has no relations:" queried the
"Oh! that's all riijit. You see niv

Smith was rather sappy, you know-
had nothing airainst him, however, al
though he was deticediy homely, and such
a barn-door of a mouth, always open."
"Well," said the cheel'ul voice of the un
dertaker, "his mouth is shut tight enmurh
now, I reckon; he'll never open it in this
world atrain. I reckon his immortal part is
now with the angels.
And my mortal is also with the angels,
thought I a line pair of angels! I felt
indignant at their clumsy ridicule. I tried
to shut my fist, but never a shut was to it.
I couid do nothing but listen. He then be
gan to measure me for my coffin. I had
heard that undertakers whistled
joyfully when they got a measure. I
believed it to be only a joke on the craft;
but Sowerby actually struck up the air
"Pull down the blinds," in a subdued thril
ling whistle while he measured me.
"A nohbv casket and one hundred hacks,
eh, Mr. Muffins? Must make big thing of
it. The cuss left lots of money, and" re
member he was to be your Priscilla's hus
band. Must make a splurge, Mr. Muffins,"
said the worthy undertaker, with an eye to
"Well. I don't mind if the coffin is a
little nobby looking; but one hundred
hacks! The deuce! "Just send one or two
for the mourners, and the rest who come to
attend the funeral can furnish their own
rigs or hoof it, whichever suits them."
They covered my face airain and left mo
to my own reflections. 1 had often heard
it remarked that meditation was good for the
soul, and this waS the best chancel ever
had of trying it.
An hour must have passed, and the door
was again opened, and two persons came
whispering along to where I lay, aud the
voice of my promised wife fell n my ear.
T dread to look at him, Mr. Howard, he
was so homely when living, he must be
frightful when dertd."
I mound my teeth in rage as I remem
bered how often she had gone into rapt
ures, or pretended to, over my noble brow
and expressive mouth, and would solemnly
declare that it I were taken from her she
would enter a convent, take the veil and
never morj behold the sun.
One of them raised the cloth; I knew
they were looking at me. Howard was the
chap she was spooney on, whom her father
"Seems to mc you don't feel very bad
about his dying, Miss Muffins," exefuhned
"Well, to tell 'the truth,' said my
betrothed, "I don't care verv much about
it. If he had lived I suppose I slioul;
have married him, because he was rich;
but I was getting aootit sick of my bar
gain, for I knew I should always be
ashamed of him."
"But you loved him," remarked Howard.
"No I didn't! my affections were wasted
long ago on one who never returned my
love." And my fast fading idol sighed
heavily. They had now covered niv face
again, and were standing within a few feet
ol where I lay.
"About how long ago, Miss Mullliv

Lovey; but lor heaven's sake idont Mr.
Howard me, my own PriscUlal" said
Howard, in a quivering voicq. Then I
heard a movement of feet, accompanied by
aloud lip explosion. Moses I how mad I
got 1 I tried to kick or rato my teeth, but
never kick or a grate could I rkiso. I was
obliged to grin and bear it. Bear it I had
to; but gnu I couldn't.
Soon my company left, and I was again
entertained by my own pleasant thoughts,
until 1 again felt the cloth geutly removed
from my face. A soft, warm palm was
liad on my forehead, and tho low 6weet
voice of Minnie Kivcrs whispered well,
no matter what.
"Night came- so did the neighbors to
my wake, aud from two old crones who sat
near me I learned to my horror that I was
to bo buried next day.
"Ot course you are coming to the funeral
to-morrosv, Mrs. Fizzlcbaum?" said one ot
"Oh ! dear, yes, surely. I hope it may
turn out a fine day, for I waut to enjoy the
ride to the cemetery."
I then lost consciousness, and tho aext I
lieaid were tho grating voices of Priscilla.
my lianced, and her mother. Apptreutly
they were brushing, dusting and giving the
room u general slicking up before the
"Is Howard to be one of the pall-bowers ?"
asked the voice of my mother-in law that
might have been.
"lie would be gladly, but he lusu't a
a suit of black clothes,," said my sweetest.
"Why, Priscilla! my child, don't jou re
member Smith's black Tiroadclotli; the suit
is brand new. I know it will tit Howard.
Call him in, he's silting in tho kitchen, ami
let him try them on."
Now, tins black suit was a particular ta
vorite of vniue, a perfect fit, that set my
person otf to great advantage, and it made
my blood boil to hear them talk so coolly
ot transferring it to my rival, to be worn at
my own funeral. I was getting very mad
now, I felt the crisis was near, and that I
should either die or explode if they med
dled with my black suit. Priscil
la took it down from the peg 1 know it,
for I heard the buckles jingle and made
for the door. I tried to shake my list, and
yell at her, but all in vain, and there I lay
outwardly ns calm as a lamb, my inwards
boiling with wrath. It was too much! The
deepest trance could not have held out
against that suit; with a powerful effort I
sprang up and howled. Priscilla dropped
my clothes, her mother the duer,
and both bounded out of the
room squealing like shot rabbits.
W ith intncuity l managed to get un
clothes, and had just got inside of my
pants when Mrs. Muffi:ns and her daugh
ter, headed by the undertaker, peered in at
the door, a mutly company of women ami
smutty-faced children stood in the recr.
Such scared looking owels; enough t
amuse a dead man So I laughed. I:
was not very becoming, but I laughed jha!
after peal till my sides began to ache.
Then the undertaker ventured near me.

"Yes," he assented, absently, "bad, rather
that is ahem !"
Fooled out of the dimes,carriageand greys,
my gal, thought I, as I looked at Priscilla.
"Go speak with him," said her father, iu
an undertone; "act your part well."'
They now began to gather around me and
to congratulate me on mv narrow escape. I
noticed they cried a great deal more than
when 1 was dead. Priscilla came and
umg on mv neck, sniveling desperately. I
gave her a not over gentle push from me.
and told her to wait next time till I wa.
afelv buried before she meddled with mv
"Oh! I'm so glad!" she sajd, sweetly,
without appearing to notice what I said
about my clothes, "that you are not dead,
dear. My heart seemed withered and
broken to see you lying so cold and white.
I wept bitterly over your poor, angelic lace,
"Oh ! yes, so you did. 1 heard you and
Howard take on a furious rate. I was it
very lucky die for me, my ducky."
"Could you hear: ' she gasped.
"I rather think I could," I replied.
"So "ood bv.my noble girl; you can have
the pleasure of calling Howard all the pet
names you can lay your tongue to. She
made a bee-line for the open door,and her
pull-back was the last 1 ever saw of her.
Howard never married her, and I hear she
still lives a life of single blessedness. As I
