Dear Mr.' Edllor.
It was a hair breadth escape, and here's
how it happened. I was wheeling Augustus
Wimple down the avenue, when a cow sud
denly turned the corner and stood before
me on the sidewalk. I wouldn't mind
meeting a wolf, lion or innddog, but I am
most wonderfully ulniid of a cow. Rut it
is part of my religii.n to conijuor my fears,
so I attempted to show courage on this
occasion. I gathered a large piece of
scantling and going toward the enemy I
said, in a voice intended to b command
ing, "Shoo! -shoo! hits -scat!!" Her only
reply to my remarks was a vigorous shake
of tho head and a slight movement for
ward. Reing open to conviction, her
argument convinced me that I was at fault,
so I hurriedly dropped my utensils of war,
and with "beads of perspiration on my
marble brow,'' aloud on neutral groundn.
I looked again at the wonderful creature,
and I fancied her about nine feet high nnd
fifteen or twenty five leet long. Twenty-
five, when she approached, and something
less, when she retreated. The horns sceim.-it
like steamboat stacks, pointed wilh swords;
her eyes like rolling rod moons; and her
tail sailed out like a rocket. Sin; breathed
like an engine, and lowed like a steam
whistle, and I stood trembling, expecting
that myself, baby, cub and' all would bo
swallowed. At this trying moment a hero
appeared, threw a pebble at the angry quad
ruped and told her to avauut! She imme
diately avaunted, and to this happy cir
cumstance am I indebted for "life, li! erty
arxl the pursuit of happiness."'
My benefactor permits me to remember
him in my prayers, and also in my letter
to you. He is anxious to reap the benefit
of newspaper notoriety. Says he would
never have risked his life for me, had I not
made such n reputation in The Rl'i.lkh.n.
lie is young, modest, temperate and unmar
ried; a physician by profession, and an
excellent vocalist. (T say this for the ben
efit of some of our handsome young ladies.)
Last week we celebrated our silver wed
ding, and invited only our intimate friends.
It seems that many of those had visitors
who were anxious to form our acquaint
ance, and so we received dozens ot notes
(something like this: ,
"Mr. and Mrs. Dumps Would you ob
ject tons bringing a very dear triend along
to your reception? She is such a sweet
crefiture. and is jiiit living to meet your
family and to lie mentioned as your friend,
Ol course we answered all atlinnatively
and louifd our list of invitations swollen to
about one hundred extras. Fift) of these
sent me silver thimbles, the cards attached,
saying: "l'lease accept and wear for my
sake." The request seemed simple, but the
performance difficult. How ever, poor little
Augustus swallowed three of them, and
has been troubled with hiccough ever
6ince. Such a crowd us wo had that
night. Our house is large, you know,
but it was full and plenty of people
sticking through the windows. One fleshy
old lady sat on my little Eva (three year
old child) all evening, and thought she was
a sofa pillow. The little dear was flattened
out so she couldn't move or scream.
In looking over our gilts from friends
next day, we found thirty-seven pic knives,
twenty-three syrup pitchers, forty-one picklo
forks, five napkin rings, twenty salt dishes,
ten boquct holders, nineteen card receivers,
two cake baskets, three berry dishes, one
water pitcher and salver, six spoons, eighty-
seven silver mugs and five silver headed
canes. There were various other little nick
nacks, among which I might yet mention
seventeen silver pen holders, which wero
presented in person with cunning little
hints to this effect ; "This is to write my
name in those charming Dumps letters."
( no of theso smiling petitioners had scarce
ly turned away from me before she said to
her companion: "What fool stulT she docs
write. A woman of her age ought
to have more sense." 1 overheard
another say: "I don't care how ridiculous
Mrs. D makes herself, just so she briugs
too into notice in Tiif. Ri llktin." So you
see, Mr. Editor, how popular your pages
are, and how envious people are of me as a
We undertook to put our silver (the
wedding gifts) in gome safe and convenient
place, but its utterly impossible. The first
night we put some of it in tho cellar, some
in the cookstovu after it cooled down and
the rest upstairs in our bed-rooms. I put
the thimbles, pen-handles and cake
baskets under our pillows, the syrup jugs
ami hoquct holders between tho mattresses
of our bed, and let Sarah and Louisa dream
on the pitcher and salver and the eighty
seven silver cups. None of us rested well,
and all dreamed of burglars and cut
throats. The cook forgot the silver in the
stove and wo came down to breakfast and
found u stream of metal oozing out of the
Mr. Dumps and I decided to bury part
of our possessions in tho garden, so we
filled up a box with pie knives and cups
and B0,m ttS (htrk coma we Btolo
out siid sank it in the ground. We wrad-
ped most of the rest in cotton flannel and
put it in the garrt, and retired compara
Next day I was prostrated with a ner
vous headache, aud rising late iu the afttr
noon I looked out of my window to see
Daniel Webster, Eva, Ruth, Zephaniah,
Johnny and Eli nil happy on the sidewalk,
assisted by about thirty children, black and
white. They hail found and unearthed our
buried treasures, and wero busy making
mud cakes and using the pic kuives ami
eighty-seven mugs for that purpose. Eive
little street arabs were astride, of Mr.
Dumps' walking sticks, prancing around
playing cavalry, while many of my ac
quaintances, who had called upon me iu
their carriages and were awaiting each
their turn to alight upon one of the numer
ous platforms in front of our resi
dence, were indignantly looking on,
finding their own cards fluttering all over
the street and walk. Some of these callers
re euteted their carriages and drove off,
while poor Louisa stood in the door trying
to apohegie to thow who came in. I was
so sorry for her, that I took real satisfaction
in having her (when company was
gone) applying vigorously the reverse
of moral suasion to sonu- of her
brothers. She is quite eloquent in these
physical debates, and very helpful to me in
training the twig the way it should grow.
Take it altogether, 1 hardly know wheth
er silver weddings pay or not. They cer
tainly have their drawbacks. I have wast
ed all my time telling you of this, to the
exclusion ot more important things in my
household. Yours thoughtfully.
Miss. Daniel Dcmin.

New Anchor Line Boats.
C'apt John 1. Reiser, superintendent of
the Anchor Line, was busy yesterday con
ferring with John Howard, the boat build
er of Jefferson ville. The conference was
for the purpose of agreeing on sizes, plans
and prices tor five new boats for the An
chor Line. They will be a compromise as
to size, so that in case of a shortage of
boats in either of the Anchor Lines, one of
these boats can take a place. The boats so
far built by the Anchor Line, with the ex
ception of the City of Greenville, have been
constructed for the Memphis aud Vicks
burg trades and too small for the New Or
leans line. The whole business will be
settled to day. Globe-Democrat.
CiiiCAco, March UO. Cold wind and
snow were the rather monotonous features
of t'.ie morning, but as the day progressed
the snow ceased falling and the wind be
came ke r " inches of snow fell,

last night and to-day is the heaviest of the
season. It lays 1 foot on a level, but iu
many pi, ices there are drifts several feet
deep. Street, railroad travel is suspended,
and many families were unable to get out
of doors until the huge drifts were cleared

The Grab Gamp.
Sedalia, Mo., March UO. This morning,
as the passenger train on the Kansas and
Texas division left the Garrison hotine
depot to go south, two scoundrels entered
one of the cars, and before the train had
moved to the Indiana street depot, a (lis
tancc of about half a mile, one of tho
boldest robberies was perpretrated that has
ever been successfully carried out in this
city. On the traiufwas Geo. W. Tate, an
elderly farmer who resides near
Ronton, Franklin county, Ills.
When tho train was within a
few yards of the Indiana Street Depot,
where the train stops for a few minutes, a
man approached Tate and asked him if ho
could cash a check. Tate drew out a largo
roll ot bills to cash the check, when a con
federate who stood near Buatched tho roll,
amounting to over f 100, from the farmer's
hand. The alarm was given and a crowd
of twenty men ran aftor tho thief through
tho labyrinth formed by numerous build
ings, curs and track, but the robber escaped
witJi hia plunder.
