MORG. BOND'S LAST BREATH.
A MAN WHO TOOK MANY LIVES MAKES CON
FES8I0N ON HI8 DEATH-BED.
From the Ban Antonio Exnrt'M.
A few weeks ago a man by the name of
Morcau Bond died on tho thicon, some uis
tanee southwest of here, of small-pox. His
wife and his brother followed him, victims
of the same disease. Bond, our reporter is
informed, was at the time out on bail,
.charged with having murdered one Baronet,
Lis brother-in-law. His revolver is said .to
have been greatly feared by all his neigh
bors. A.yn wtfir states that about
-tnrce years ago the remains or a dead man
were found on Mustang prairie, someeignt
miles south of Castroville. An investiga
tion followed, and it was concluded that the
remains were Ihoso of one Bird, of the
Leona. A few days after this discovery
another body was found in Dagger thicket, i
on the Chicon, which was identified as that '
of ono Roc, of the neighborhood. Bird', it
is said, left his home with about $400 in
his pockets. Roe was the main witness
against Bond for the murder of Baronet.
When the coroner made inquiry as to how
the two men whose bodies were found came
to their death nothing definite wasdevcloped.
If any one knew . of tho matter it was
buried as a secret, cither through tear or for
friendship's sake. So the murders remained
veiled in mystery until the timo had come
for Morgan Bond to die. Those who nursed
him in his sickness state that only a few
hours before death the man became very
""delirious ami talked freely and loudly of
many things that seemed to trouble his
mind. He spoke, it is said, of the two
localities where the bodies of Bird and Roe
had been found, and mentioned the names
of the men, appealing, in his frenzy, to
those about him to protect him from vio
lence. He called on the nurses to shield
him from an avenging mob that stood
about his bedside, ready and anxious to
take his life. No assuranco brought con
solation. He finally became so violent that
the nurses were forced to tie him fast to the
bed, in which condition he breathed his
last passed into a dark,, a hopeless eternity-
THE PRONUNCIATION OF "U."
From tbe Washington Star.
Ai the schools have just opened and as
everybody ads your paper, ii you will al
low me tho space, I wish to call the atten
tion of teachers and pupils to a fault in
English pronunciation exceeding common
in the North, rarely heard in tho South or
in England, but which seems to bo spread
inghcre. (We have faults enough in tho
South' without grafting some northern ones
upon them.) I refer to the vulgarism if I
may so term of giving the long "u," which
is in so many of our common words, the
sound of "oo."
For instance, ninety-five out of every 100
Northerners will say institoot instead of in
stitute, dooty instead of duty a perfect
rhyme to tho word beauty. They will call
new and news noo and noov-a perfect
rhyme to pew and pews and so on through
the dozens nnd hundreds of similar words,
Not a dictionary in tho English language
authorizes this. In student and stupid the
"u" has the same s'ound as in cupid, and
they should not be pronounced stoodcut
and stoopid, as so many teachers nro in tho
habit of soundltiff them.
If it is a vulgarism to call a door n donh
as we all admit isn't it as much of a vul
parisin to call newspaper a noospaper?
One rulgarism is Northern and tho other
. Southern that's tho only difference. When
the London Punch wishes to burlesque the
pronunciation of servants it vunkes them
call (ho duke the dock, the tutor tho footer
and a tuba a toob. You never And the best
Northern speaker, audi as WcndMi Phil
lips, Charles Sumner, Georgo William Cur
til, Emerson, Holmes nnd men of that clam
laying noo for new or Toosdny for Tucmlav,
avenoo for avenue or calling a duno a doop.
It ii aJanlt that a Southerner alio never
falls into. De has slips enough of another
kind, but be doesn't slip on tho long "u."
As many of our teachers liavo never 'had
their attention called to this, I hope - they

"I was once very shy," said Sydney
Smith, "but it was not long before I made
two very useful discoveries; first, that all
mankind were not wholly employed in ob
serving me (a belief that all young people
have); and next, that shamming was of no
use ; that the world was very clear-sighted,
and 60on estimated a man at lus just value,
this cured me, and I determined to be
huturul and let the world fiud mc out."
"Sing me, mine own," ho whispered,
lovingly, as they both sat down on the one
piano" stool, "sing me 'O, whispe r what thou
feelcst. ' "I will, young man, 1 will, said
the tremulous tones of her papa, from the
direction cf the door. "We will sing it as
a duet, you and I. I. will feel, and you can
whisper what it is." And then he felt for
the boy with his feet, and went on. with un
feeling difference. "And you needn't con
fine yourself to a whisper, necessarily, in
toiling what you feel, nnd what it feels like.
Give it voice, young man ; give it voice."
