EFFECTUALLY PLAYED OUT.
Tho Harper of the Okolona States is,
doubtless, ninazed. The frea advertising
given to him by the Republican papers of
the North led kini to lclieve that people
op tiiis way were on a sort of a craze to gee
hint. His ' treasonable blatherisms were
copied into Bepublicaa newspapers every
where, and Republican editors, prcsumiag
too much upon thu ignorance of their read
ers, held up the treoson-cronker as thu
. r wiaiMntluiunt oi Sduthura DmoovAcy.
It was quito nautral, theroforo, tlmt Col.
Ilarper should conceivo that a lecture Held
had been opened, from which ho could
gather a fortune. la imagination lie doubt
less saw thu stuuejua along hut route of
travel, thronged with people, eager to catch
a glimpse of the Okolona roarer. He
probably saw delegations, with bra:ja
band, meeting him on the out
skirts of the cities and towns
where fie had announced a lecture; and the
lecrare nauiwny no saw "011111008 in it.' I
But what is Col. Harpci's experience) On'
Lis arrival in Chicago the inevitable inter
viewers took hiiu in hand, and inflicted upon
tho patient readers of the Chicago dailies
several columns of matter that embodied
accurate descriptions of tile Colonel's per-
son, with full reports of everything lie had
to say touching his mission to "Yankee
land." But after the interviews came
nobody, and, but for that hospitality for
which Chicago folks are famous, he would
have played the role of tho "neglected
stranger." He lectured, and in a hall
where thousands were wont to
congregate oa the most ordi
nary occasions, tho Colonel found
t most discouraging array of empty benches.
His lecture, published in tho Times next
morning, full as flat upon tho community
as it did upon the quiet and unmoved 200
in tho hall. But few read it, but few dis
cussed it, and wo have not observed that it
found place in tho columns of any of the
newspapers of tlie State, outsido of Chicago.
But it was tho Republican soil of Iowa he
had marked for his labors, and thither lie
betook himself. Ho reached Du Buquo,
. and a telegram sent out from that city tells
how he received precisely tho amount of ad
vertising ho paid for, how three or four cu
rious Democrats and about tlireo dozen He
publicans constituted tho crowd of forty be
foro which ho delivered his lecture, and
how, instead of occupying elegant suits, at
tho expense of Republican campaign com
mittees, in the best hotel in tho city, ho ob
ecuratod himself in a Baptist parsonage.
Now it remains to bo seen
if Republican newspaper men will learn
from the facts above recited that the people
of the North, as people, care nothing for
'CoL'lIarpcr or Col. Harper's vaporlugs. It
remains to bo seen whether they will con
f tone to deluge their rcadots with tho
Okolonaisuis which the renders refuse to
receive directly from the fountain head.
They are given to the performance of most
extraordinary and incomprehensible things,
re the average of Republican editors;, but
it it hardly probable, now that they snow
that they have brought their readers to the
point of ,vomiting7tba't "hoy of "them not
incurably stupid-will continue tJ admlrj.

OR; AUNTIIOLYOKE'S RINO.
June 1, 1877. Sunday. We had such a
stirring preacher to-day a home mission
ary. He set tho wholo business before us
in a new light; ho urged upon us the neces
sity of action. If nearor duties detained
us. we ought to give tithes of our incomo ho
said. Mr. Andover added a few remarks to
emphasize tho missionary's, find then the
box was passed. Of courso I hadn't any
monev. i tnoucr it somewnai oi Duuinsr in
the ring Aunt llolyokc Tuft me, but didn't
dare. Afterward Mr. Andover said if apy
one had come to church unprepnred,
she could leave her mite m hi
hands at any time- to be for-
warded for tho good cause. I told
Fliilip, who overtook mo on tiio way front
church how much I was lutercsted, and
how much I wished I wero rich enough to
contribute; and ho only laughed and pooh
poohed, and called me a religious enthusi
ast. Mother says she wishes Philip
wouldn't haunt mo so much; that since he
has broken our engagement because we
were too poor to marry, and no likelihood
ot our ffrowin" richer," as his father had
just failed, ho ought not to act as if I be
longed to Inm still. I Btippose she thinks
it diminishes my chances; but I don't
want any moro "chances;" I don't believe I
will ever many now; neither will Philip;
and why should we not be friends? Old
Mrs. Aberncthy told me, directly after tho
engagement was oiF, that sho always knew
rliilip Devcreaux was scllisu ana mcrco
nnvy. 1 Kjtould have given her a piece of
my mind if she hadn't been old enough to
bo my grandmother, and hadn't meant it
kimlly. How unhappy I wa3 when Nell
Williams got angry with me, and said sho
cuuu t ociieve that Philip ever meant to
marry me, and would never marry any girl
without a fortune I That ended our friend
ship. Thursday. Philip is going away! It is
liko a thunder-bolt, lie is going into busi
ness iu New York. Perhnp she will make
a fortune; who knowsl Not that I care
for money. Mr. Andover brought me a
book to read to mother, and a bunch of
scarlet columbines. How I. wish she could
see their rich color aud grace! I told him
thht I had grown a sudden interest in
home missions, and wished there was some
thing I could do for the poor people the
Rev. Mr. Gerrish told us about. "Your
mission is already marked out for you,"
he said. 'You are eyes to the bliud, and
sunshine to those who sit in shadow." I al
ways think Mr. Andover is a pla;ri man til!
Tuesday. Philip is gone. He bade me
good-by at tltc g.ite last night, under the
stars. He is going to write often. It is
horribly lonesome today: what would a
lifetime be without him! I've beguiled
I myself thinking over a plan for raising
money for tuj home missions. I ve sold
Aunt HolyokVs ring. It was a pretty rin,
buttlw jeweler only s.Tave me two dollars
for it, with which I have bought a lottery
ticket. It doesn't draw till the 1st of Ju!v,
nuU then how proud I houll be to ulte'ii
$1,000 over to thu parsonage for the cause,
anil how surprised Mr. Andover would be !
Wednesday. Very dull. Read "Para
dise Lost" to mother.
Thursday, 20. Mr. Andover called;
asked if I heard from Mr. Devcreaux. I'm
arratd something has Happened to him.
June 30. A short but delightful letter
from Philip. He is too busy to write much
or often. Mr. Andover is going to give me
July 3. TIkj lottery ticket drew nothing.
I could have cried. I built so many castles.
The very next number to mine drew $3J0.
I painted a little horseshoe Ger
man forget-me-nots on a gold
grohnd and Mr. Ashley, the stationer,
told it for me for live dollars. I was thunder-struck.
Who could have thought it
worth so much? I mean to buy a ticket in
the Royal Havana lottery this time. Per
haps this is the beginning of luck.
July 11. -Wrote to Philip. Mr. An
dover came to give me a GermDii lesson,
and afterward read to mother and me from
the German authors. I told him, just as
he was leaving, that I had heard from
Philip, because he asked before. Thought
ho looked displeased or snmcthimr: per
n;iis no iiiiims i iu wanting m proper
spirit, to correspond with Philip since our
engagement is broken.
August. Philip is so busy that he can't
find timo to write often. I've had onlv
tnrec letters since no ielt, but he says that

August 11. Such weather is too "splen
om to enjoy alone. Mr. Andover rowed
mo up to the Artichoke river. .It was liko
fairy-laud, all the boughs xf tho trees lean
ing across lrom shore to shore, ami the
moonlight and stars sifting through, and
painting weird shadows upon tho still
water. Resting upon his oars, ho sang to
mo a gondelied which ho learned abroad
thatsocmed just a part of tho moonlight!
the Bmooth river, and the summer. What
theywcrctothceyS, his song whs to the
car. I wish Philip could sing.
August 12. The moBt astonishing thing
has happened. I can hardly believe it. I
havo been in a statu of supremo excitement
ever 8i,,ce tho mail came iu. What will
1 hilip say? I have never been bo happy
since tho day ho told mo ho had mado up
his mind that ho was selfishly standin" in
my light, and that our engagement must
be broken till ho should seo his way clear
to a fortune. Notliiug I urged could
change his noble resolvo. But now there is
no longer any need of separation. His way
is clear to a fortune I have drawn a prize
in tho Royal Havana lottery! Good luck
under a horseshoe.

.10. No lottcr from Philip, j Perhaps it
is too cnrly to look for one, -
20. I shall never havo tho happiness of
expecting a letter from Philip again. Per
haps I am only punished for my selfishness.
I l)ought tho lottery' ticket, to be sure, in
order to benefit the home mission, but the
temptation to benefit Philip and myself
was too great. When I drew tho prizo I
doubted at tho time whether I did not owe
it all to home mission, but as I had only
hoped to draw a thousand dollars at most
for that cause, my scruples were overruled
by selfishness. My religious enthusiasm,
as Philip ouco called it, died out when it
came into competition with my own happi
ness. I am punished, indeed. I was so
happy, too, when I started under Mr.
Andovcr's convoy for tho church picnic.
I had no doubt but Philip was on his way
to meet mo and make arrangements for our
marriage, because ho had not written.
Peliaps he would be at homo waiting for
me, talking it over with mother. I was so
sure of his love. By-aud-by I got tired
strolling in the woods and hunting for
maiden-hair fern with Mr. Andover," and
sat down by some trees, a littlo apart from
the others, to think and enjoy. And
presently I heard Miss Anno Cutts rcadihg
a letter aloud to Mrs. Blair, and her dron
iug voice was hushing mo off to sleep.
"Our wedding is fixed for October. 1
wanted to wait till Christmas but my lord
and master objected. My gown is already
ordered of Worth. I shall bo married in
church by Mr. Andover.
"Your affectionate niece,
Was Miss Anne Cutts still reildiuir aloud
or had I dreamed this about the wedding
and Mr. Andover? I oneucd mv oves.
and saw a little bird tilting on a spray, and
immediately Mrs. Blair broke the spell by
saying, "Bless mc Anne! it't a good match
for Philip Devcreaux, now isn't it? A lucky
day for him when he broke off with Belle
Ford?" And I heard no more; the trees
and the birds seemed to swim before me iu
a cloud of mist. I stood up nnd steadied
myself against a bowlder, and Mr. Ando.xr
came and put my arm in his aud took me
home. And this is the end.
Phillip untrue; Philip the lover of an
other! It is unreal! I cannot seem to
August 22. A letter from Devcreaux.
After all, I thought, maybe, it was gossip
and hearsay. The sight of the lamiliar
liauuwriung sent tue blood spinning
through my veins. Re congratulated me
on my good luck, and added: "Hiving
broken with you when wo were both beg
gars, how could I renew it now because
you have become rich? Would not the
world- our world have the right to point
tho finger of scorn at me? , I cannot accept
sucn generosity, jjelle, even tor vour sake,
but must still plod on." Once' I .should
have thought these sentiments so noble.
Whereas I was blind, now I see. He
thinks that I know nothing about the affair
of Anuette Cutts, or he hus not courage to
break it to me.
September 15. I have resumed mv Ger
man studies, to divert my mind. Every
body is talking of the approaching mar-
tiat;. 1 told Mr. Aml'" '"ui il.e pnao
aad aked if he would take it for some- mi
"Have you the money in hand?'' he
"No; I have not even sent on my ticket.
I have merely been notified that I had
drawn the amount."
"My dear Mis Belie," he said, "pardon
mc but I do not approve of lotteries."
"Neither do I, any longer."
"It may be a foolish scruple," he pur
sued; "most people would laugh at it; but
it seems to me that money obtained iu that
way does more harm than good will nor
be blessed in the use."
'Perhaps not," I said: "but what shall I
do with it? I feel like the man who drew
"Suppose you destroy the ticket, and
nothing about it?"
"Very well," I returned. "I wish I had
never bought it." And so I held it in the
gas jet, and reduced the fortune that was to
have mado me happy to a pinch of ashes. .
October 1. A dreadful thing has hap
pened. Squire Cutts has died insolvent.
It will postpone Annette's wedding. I hear
that the order for her wedding gown has
been countermanded. But if Philip loves
her, she is still riclr. All the Jungdoms of
the eartli can not buy love.
June, 1S78. It is more than a vear since

curred? I have often wondered how Philii
T , , . . . .. . 1
wuNcreaux oore umiseii alter Annette t'utts
married old General Battles, with millions
and bis gout, preferring a p:dace without
love to love in a cottage. Yesterday I
wandered into the pinu woods alone. Mr
Aiuiover uim i nave been there so often
that all its treasures of shade and sunlignt
of soaring pines und humble uiomch
seemed to belong to es. Its wind
nig ways arc like enchantment, luring u
on to more beauty aud serenity. It is like
walking through dim cathedral aisles as we
tread upon tho carpet of pine needles, and
near uio wina iiiiting through the branches,
while spicy incense is wafted about, and
sweet thoughts come liko a benediction.
1 ou scaicely hear an approaching footstep,
and I was gathering some ferns, w hen nonie
one close beside mo said, "Isabcllo! Isa
hello I"' a voice that sounded stran"cly
laminar, out was not Mr. Anuover's; a voice
that seemed to conjure a vision of starry
nuiiiiuui lupins, uim bwcci scentH, nnd ten
der words, iu the instant before I could
turn. I never once thought of Philip Dev
creaux, but there he stood, smiling nnd de
bonair, as if wo had only parted nil hour
ago. "Your mother told mo I Mnu fin,i
you here," ho said, taking my unwilling
hand. "See, I picked a four-leaved clover
as I camo across the meadow; tlmt means
luck. Isabellc, can you forgive mei"
"Yes, indeed," I answered, heartily "and
thank you too." "
"I was a fool, Isabellc."
"And so was I."
"Isabelle, don't turn awny your head. I
never loved Annette. I love vou. Ym'i iiv.

marry you, Isabelle."
"I shall never marry vou. P nlm" I
"I do not love you any longer."
"Not love me?" ho cried. "Oh. I nn.l,.r.

nut no love." And then he fell t
testing and expostulating, while wo walked
out of the pino woods together; nnd just ns
wo emerged into tho road wc met Mr. An
dover. Ho bowed and pnssed on. i kn(,w
he had conic to look for me. I parted with
Phillip at tho gate, where wo parted ones
before, and to-floy it is oil over town that
