The Man Who Was Scalped.

when tho citizen replied that he had al

tho father of tho express bnsiucss in this

old letter from William F. IliiOtJcn,
dated October 27, 1833, asking for tho
position f conductor on tho Westerii
Railroad. "For nomo reavson," snys Mr,
Qtilncy, "Harmden did not got tho con

young fellow, who wished to bo on tho

of business, which in tho hands of a
bright mau, I thought might be pushed
to success. As Director and President
of tho Providence Railroad I was com
pelled to nitiko weekly journeys to Now

held. Tho days of my departure wero
well known, and 1 was always met ut

Oue day limt week when the remaius
of a woman had been driven away from
. . , i1 t . . .
a uuienicni on uiviHiun street to a pau
per's grave, says tho Detroit Fret to,
half a dozen, women gathered in the
baro rooms to act as executors. Law
did not enter with them. Thercwos not ,
enough there to attract tho vulture. The
bed was old and poor only fit for a
bonfire. Tho stove would hardly pay
for removal. Threo or four old chaira,
a table, a few pieces of crockery even
the poorest who had gathered there had
no use for them. And yet awoman and
her bov babe had lived thoro in the nov-
ftrtv firwl iTn-mv Mm climlnura Inv inn it
months. No, it was not living; it was
dragging out tho hours waiting for
another sunset for another sunrise-
for the coming of tlte glad relief. When
tho body has long been ill and the soul
sick when days and nights and weeks
and months havo brought nothing but
cold and hunger and groans of despair,
tho dread of death is nothing. The com
ing of tho shadow is even hailed with
And so they had lived; and one night
when the winds howled drearily andlho
snowflakes whirled through tho broken
panes, the mother and her boy slept
she to awaken no moro on earth. His
littlo bauds were toying w ith her cold,
deatl faeo when they found him. They
took him away, and ho smiled when
they said: "Poor- babe! You aro all
alone now!". When tho mother had
cone to her narrow homo they crept ud
stairs to the dismal room, and ouo of
"Wo havo found a homo for the child,
but he must not forget his mother. Lot
us look for his legacy."
And so they searched old dresses, and
peered into tho dark corners, and rever
ently opened tho old boxes at tho foot of
tho bed. One found an old scrap-book;
another u necklace of beads; another a
knot of ribbon, and when the search was
ended there on the table was a heap of
relics which they wept over. There waa
something there which told of a girl's
love; there was something which told of
marriage of happiness of ahusband's
death of deep sorrow and bitter pover
ty. An auctioneer would havo turned
away in contempt a rag-buyer would
not have gathered them tip, and yet those
women, each w ith tho heart of a moth
er, handled each relic wirti fresh toara.
There was no story in them for a man
there was a wholo lifo's history in thorn
for a woman. They had not found even
a penny in money not an article that
would "bring a dinio not enough prop
erty there to call for removal, and yet
they had found something there of moro
value than gold or diamonds. There
was a legacy for tho babe. There waa
a faded old tintype of father and moth
er, somo letters stained with tears, two
locks of hair pinned to tho samo card
more to him than if the old boxes had
boen full of bright dollars. Only by
them will ho recall tho dead will he
realizo a mother's love and devotion
will ho know that one dark morning
women'crept up stairs and found him
truttling to the dead. Money might
lave worked his ruin. Those relics, on
which a mother's tears havo fallen
over which a mothor's prayers have aa-
centletl to Heaven will 00 a holy light
to guide him through the deepest gloom.
Every square foot of ground is put to
uso, has been in uso for unnumbered
generations. Hero and there iu the dis
tance appear patches of wood, carefully
preserved and guarded, but tho rest of
the land is almost baro of shade. There
is no brush or tangle of weed and wild
flower by the roadsido, no thicket by
tho stream. The laat of theso tres
passers were eradicated ages ago, alonsr,
with the last stump. A gray stono wall
borders the highway. Tho crossroads
are often sunk two or threo feet below
tho general level. Narrow ridges of
earth mark tho boundaries of tho fields,
and tho furrows aro driven so close to
them that it is a wonder how the plough
is turned. Single rows of poplars stretch
with exasperating regularity across the
landscape. They aro trimmed close,
and sometimes every twig is removed
except a bunch at tho extremo top; thon
they look liko liberty poles with bushes '
tied to them. There aro willows by tho
brook, but they are pollard-willows,
kept for their twigs which are scrupu
lously cut off, nnd they lift their scarred
and knotted trunks like hands from
which all tho fingers have been ampu
