"TIIE DEVIL HE DID?"
Upon the hypothesis, that tbo United
States is the favorite nation of the world,
and that she has produced tho grandest
types of noble and true manhood of any age
or country, and the fact that everything in
nature has its contrast or opposite, I base
this theory; having produced the grandest
of Adam's ra:e, as a natural consequence
must produce the most duspisablo in the
person of Guitcau, the assassin of President
I think when Satan, held within the do
main of Uncle Sam, tho noblest of God's
handy work, his jealously was aroused to
the highest pitch. Hell had not witnessed
such fury and commotion since Gabriol
hurled its master from the battlomonta ot
Tho Arch fiend of man calls a council,
cites them to the work Omipotonce has
done and is doing for the glorification of
his great and dread name, and commands
them to Resist him in devising means where
by that work can be counteracted. And a
g'ekening torturing silence, Belczobub
speaks thus: "Dread sovereign of hell, I,
thy most faithful servant and sharer of thy
dread power will assist thee in this dire
emergency upon this condition, that myself
shall be sole judge in tho manner which
and when to do this work." Satin thcu
Baid : 'Prince Boelzebub, our baothor, we
grant thee thy request, and all the aid that
hell can lend Is thine, go, and when thy
work is done get thy reward."
On a sultry Burtimer'i evening the
emmessary of the evil one was sitting tired
and exhausted on a goods box at ono of
the street corners of Chicago, having wan
dered though the length and breadth of the
land soarching for theobjoct of hie mission,
but until now unsuccessful. Common hy
pocrita and common murderers there were
plenty, but such did not suit him, the man
that ho wanted must not even hare suspi
cion of a spark of a redeeming guilty in bis
composition. Sitting there in deep thought
and almost despairing of success a peculiar
sound of a step smote upon his ear; looking
up ho beheld the form of a man approach
ing; in a moment the expression of his
whole features changed I a lurid brilliancy
lit his eyes, and that sardonic diabolical
grin so peculiar to him spread over face
from ear ta ear.
There! thijro on the street of Chicago
stood the object of his niiseion. Hence
forth I'll be his shadow and bia tutor, in
his dreams ho shall see himself tho most
famous man in the nation I applauded for
an act, in the performance of which it
will take years of my best powers of hy
pocrisy to,instruct him, and its design and
execution must havo no parable. Yesl
this is the proper subject, this very Qui
teau. In 1882 once again was Satan's high
council ot the lower regions summoned tor
a conference of high import. His Satanic
Majesty occupying the throne ef Hades, at
his right his Prime Minister Beelzebub,
on his left the lesser Chiefs of Pluto.
Beelzebub was holding in his right claws
an object bound hand and foot; this ob
ject caused a certain palor to spread over
the features of the imps ot hell. Satan
himself being visibly agitated at the sight
of tho bound monster, and it was some
minutes before he could collect his thoughts
enough to speak ; then thus:
"Beelzebub, thou hast overreached thy
self; the monster thou holdest, and who is
bound in chains forged in the depths of
hell, whom people on yonder upper world
call Guiteau is too foul and dangerous to
be admitted here! Cans't not thou see
notoriety imprinted in every lineament of
his most despicable composition? Would
he not for notoriety with all the powers of
hypocray in his more than devilish na
ture boguile and betray us? Where in
all tho vastncbs of our mighty roalm is
there such a consumate hypocrite? Not
even me, nor you, Beelzebub, can match
him. Were we to tifrn him loose, not one
of Gehenna's Devils would 'scape corrup
tion through his power; not able
to assassinate he'd drive us from our
throne by lies the slickest, smoothest and
slimiest lies that Hades ever dreamed of.
See that thou koepest him gagged and as
thou valucst thine high office and our
friendship let not a whisper escape his
treacherous mouth, and further would we
chargo thee to call all thu wisdom of our
realm to council, thyself preside to pass
upon that foulest wretch his doom"
Satan on his throno of Hades; Enter
"Most High and Mighty Prince of Dark
ness, Dread Sovereign of the Nether
World; In obedience to thy dread com
mand, I place before thee the result of tho
deliberation of the wisdom of thy mighty
kingdom. Dos't remember when Omnipo
tence, whose name wo fear, and dread, and
hato, most ruthlessly drove us from thu
realms of bliss, ami (Vir.'ed us here; Ho
put a boundary to thy realm on every side
Bave one, tho nether? There is a bit of
territory sorao thousands of millions of
milos in compass, sot by decreo apart for
certain purposes I need not mention, en
the confines of thy realm, it lies toward the
southwest, condemned by that dread power
to silence everlasting. Whomsoever thou
condemnest thither may hoar and seo all
things within tho realms of bliss, but can
not speak or havo tho power to move, nor
Gods nor devils can ever enter there, nor
hear nor know him ever after, with thy
permission Sire of Darkness, I'll take Gui
Satan.'- Tie well ! You have my leave,
lake him, tighten his shackles, pitch him
out of hell into that everlasting solitudo
from sight and memory of man and

Light About the House Wo Live In.
Tho well-known author of "Medical
Common Sense," Dr. N. B. Wolfe, of Cin
cinnatLO., has just published a new book,
called Moro light about the house wo live
in 1" which is attractively illustrated, and
abounds in "plain talk, but true," against
swallowing drugs into the stomach, for any
disease of the noso, throat, or lungs. It is
a wholesome littlo volumo to read, and
Bhonld be in tho hands of every subscriber
to The Bulletin. Bend ten cents to tho
Doctor, and get a copy of It froo by return
mail. Address as above.

Feathers and Humming Birds.
Feathers have resumed their prestige,
and are used in great profusion, not
onlv covoring the entire hat with their
flully-flu!8,'but handsome ostrich plumes
droop carelessly and gracefully over the
back of head and down shouhfers. The
ribhons for strings and bows aro in
moire, satin, and plush. Although feath
ers are most popular as trimming's, still
ninny very elegant hats are further
adornod with oriontal beading in largo
beads, or in bands of small-sized illumi
nated beads, together with gold thread
or silver and bronzo effects, great
quantities of gold-headed pins bciing us
ed to secure puffs and folds of plush or
Among quantities of exquisite novel
ties made to order during the past week
was a hat of pink-plush, trimmed with
three very pretty and dainty plumes in
pink and blue. Another, in bonnet
shape, of smoke-colored velvet, gatlier-
ea on a irame edged with lace and trim-
mod in front with a drooping cluster of
feathers, which alsoextcnil over the side.
A very handsomo hat is made entirely
of 8lir'iint-oolored feathers, in ostrich
tips and plumes. Tho shape is very
largo and striking, and the hat is lined
underneath with the same- dainty plumes
Another shape shows nn ornament of 1
pleated blue velvet, with each pleat pin
ned in place by a gold-headed pin, with
long feather plumes drooping over the
trimming ami down the back. Blue and
drab plush, two shades In light blue,
rose, and flesh pink. Nile gTeon and
pink are used in combination plush hats,
the crown being of one color and the
brim of the other, with plumes in one
or both colors or shaded, V
A beautiful bonnet of white plush has
embroidered crown in satin beads and
border of flufl'y ostrich plumes which ex
tend over back. Another of pale pink
fdush has six handsomo feathers on
ront, one sido and on back, while the
other side shows a wreath of handsomo
crushed roses. And still another model,
shaped like a Rubens hat, in delicate
steel color, with superb plumes sprink
led with steel powder wreathing the hat
and falling in double curls all over tho
shoulder. In many cases of these ex
ceedingly delicate hats the feathers aro
fastened undernoath the head or breast
feathers of the radiant Impoyan, which
illuminates exquisitely under gaslight
Humming-birds heads and breasts are
also in great demand, and, indeed, all
kinds of tropical feathers aro in requisi
tion. Another fancy is for a collarette of
lace, plush, brocade, or satin to match
tho hat, which is most convenient for
ladies wW have handsomo dresses, but
cannot afford the cloak as well. One
specimen was of cream lace, richly cm- .
broidered with satin beads und trimmed
with bows of ribbon. Illuminated nnd
Iridescent beads trim these collars very
effectively, and others arc finished with
chenille embroidery and fringe. iVu'fo
How Wilkes Booth Was Buried.
As a newspaper correspondent Ihad
occasion to visit tho old capitol prison,
in Washington, in February, lSGi), to
witness the exhumation and the rendi
tion to their respective friends and rela
tives tho remains of tho couspirntors in
the Lincoln assassination. President
Johnson was about to go out of office,
nnd ho Issued au order permitting chris
tian burial to tho bodies of tho live per
sons implicated in the death of Lincoln
Booth, Mrs. Surratt Atzerodt, Payne,
nnd Harold. They had been buried in
ammunition boxes of common pino
wood, six feet long, two feet wide, nnd
two feet deep. Whon the lid was lifted
from Booth's coffin his faco was perfect,
with tho exception of a small holo
about tho sizo of a dime in each check.
His hair was in as good condition as if
ho had just como out of a barber's shop.
In taking out tho body to plaeo it in a
handsomo rosewood coffin supplied by
his mother, Mrs. Booth, of Baltimore,
tho head lropped off from tho body.
Not so with Mrs. Surratt. Her face and
form were perfect, nnd sho looked like
ono in a hanpy, dreamless sleep. Her
head adhered to tho body in tho process
of transfer. Payne's body was greatly
wasted, but Atzerodt's was the worst of
nil; for when the army blanket that cov
ered his remains was lifted up it re
vealed a shapeless mass of blackened
bones and ashes, with a bald and separ
ated skull in one comer. Talking of
this matter of tho Lincoln assassination,
I remember asking Andrew Johnson one
day when we were traveling togpther
through East Tennessee, at a time when .
ho was running for congressmnn-at
large against Horace Maynard and Frank
Cheatham, why it was ho did not pnr
don Mrs. Surratt. Ho was in a com
municative mood and he said: "Tho
truo history of that case has never been
told. It was represented in tho papers ,
that I refused to seo Annie Surratt (tho
daughter of Mrs. Surratt) when sho
came to the Whlto Houso tho morning
of the execution asking for tho pardon
of her mot her. Tho fact is that i never
knew it was Miss Surratt; becauso a
man named Muzzy, who had general
charge of tho White Houso, oamo to mo
and said a crazy woman was down stairs
and wanted to get in and seo me, and
sho wouldn't give hor name, but was
crying and tearing her hair, and exhib
ited all the appearances of Insaulry."
"But would you havo pardoned' Mrs.
Surrutt?" I asked, "supposing yon had
"I don't think I would," ho replied,
in his bluff way. "Sho didn't do tho ;
shooting, but Hhe was au accessory to
it, which is all tho same.--.tf onto; 2Vaw
ckr. "What did you do with that letter
that was on my tableP" asked Gus De
Smith of the colored boy w ho cleans
