AUNT BEOKTS BEAU.
Ben Wyl-Ie In Chicago News.
Aunt Booty, who has not a nephew or
niece in the world, but is aunt to everybody,
presl me sr. hard that I remained over New
Year's day nt her house. Auut Becky is the
woman who was preseut on salary, the morn
ing I was bom, and wbo blew in my face and
helped ma to catch the breath that I didnt
know bow to catch alone; so I feel that there
was some truth in the yarns they used to tell
me about Aunt Becky being? my "other
mother." She remained at our house go long
that I had begun to toddle and knew how
to feel deeply grieved when she went away
to be married to Duncan Boggs, the well-to-do
Tamaiaek farmer, who was killed by a
threshing machine the next summer.
Yesterday, as we sat by her warm Are
eating doughnuta and drinking cider, there
came a rap at the side door. Bobby, a bright
lad whom Aunt Becky adopted from a found
Lugs' home some seven or eight years ago,
ran to the window and peeped out.
"It's Deacon Podson," said the boy, loud
wuh, I am sure, for the deacon to hear if
his ears had not been muffed in a long,
crochet.! ti;-.pet that went around his nck
and over his head nobody dare gu-?: bow
Vben Aunt Becky went to the door to let
the deacon in, Bobby ran up to me aud
Lisp-red: ''That's ma's beau."
I La. I met the deacon before. Indeed, ha
has been Aunt Becky's beau for some ten
years low, and I have met him at her houso
on the occasion of each of my annual visit
Moreover, I have often thought Aunt Becky
would like to marry him if he only had spunk
enough to a.-k ter about it
Pvaeon I'ixLon is a tall man, with should
ers as round as Atlas', and perhaps from a
n me.vLat similar cause, since the affairs of
Tamarack, which amount in his estimation
to a whole world of affairs, rest mainly on
Lita. lie is chairman of the village board,
one of the school directors, chiet pillar of
the church, end master of ceremonies at all
Liuies and in all places. I don't wonder ttiat
he is round-shouldered. For five years, to
my knowledge, he has been "nigb onto &),"
wlucii leads me to bviieve that he is not far
from thai ag-, either one side or the other of
it. As he came into the room he began to
unroll and unravel and untwist the long
tippet from his neck, speaking not a word.
Ti.cn he took off his outside coat and laid it,
all uowy over the coal box in the corner.
Presently he tapjiened to think to tako off
his bat, and be held it in bis hand as he said:
ll)w d'y dor
"How d'y doT said Aant Becky.
"Uncle Ben is here," said little Bobby, call
ing the cL-aeon's attention to mo.
"How d'y doT said the deacon, standing
with his hat in his band, and looking like a
great bulk of a boy about to speak a piece to
Ui rst audience.
"TVon't you take a cheer T asked Aunt
Becky, pushing a big rocker near the stove.
"No, 1 can set here just as well," replied
the deacon, confusedly, as he let hiinsulf
down on a corner of the coal box.
"You'd bettt-r Uke the cheer," urged Aunt
- "Waal. I don't care if I do."
Aunt Becky drew up ber old-fashioned
sewing clair, and the two put their foet on
the stovebtartu, pretty near each other. A
lon. embarrassing silence followed, during
which Dacon Podson warmed his hands by
the stove, and rubbed them together, with a
fewgrunto&ud pbews, as if he were very
r "Is it so cold outr I asked.
' "Toi'able cold," said the deacon.
Another long silence.
"How hev you beeuT asked Aunt Becky.
k "Oh, toi'able."
Aftr more oppressive silence the deacon
arose from his chair and said: "Waal, I Junt
come over to ?ay wish you happy Now Year."
"Waal, waal, you hain't a goiu' yit," said
Aunt Becky. "Law s&keel youhain't but just
The deacon sat down again, lie hadn't in
tended to go, but the poor man had to say
I U-gD to think it was occasion when two
are company and three or f.jur are none, so I
told B' iLby if he would come out in the kitcb'jn
I would play checkers with him.
"I guess you don't remember it'sXew Year's
day, do you, Benny r said Aunt Becky.
"Well," said I with a pretty good imita
tion of surprise and shame, 'lliat' so. I de
clare 1 came near playing checkers, never
once thinking it wns New Year's day." I low
I lied! Only 1 didn't know that checkers
were tabooed on such occaMcns in Tamarack
or I should never have suggested the game.
"We can play dotninoua, though, can't we.
Uncle Ben r
Iwam't dead sure whether dominoes were
... in th proscribed list, so I protended not to
"Ma, dominoes are all right, ain't they P
"Ye; you can play dominoes, of course,"
said Aunt IVcky.
"Dominoes!'1 I echoed, as if I had just
caught Lobby's question. "Ob, yes; dond
inoes are all right.
Bobby and I went to the kitchen, arid
a 1 ivd through the door I left it ojwn a
little, for 1 was resolved to see how a widower
of O) and a widow of 50 odd would make
love afU;r ten years of courtship. I drew the
Ub!e near the door, whero 1 could bear and
mo what was going on in the sitting-room,
and Bobby brought out the harmless domi
noes. I made so many errors that the littlo
fellow had no trouble- In bating mo which
made lura happy to continue, and so served
Deacon Podson sat there twirling big hat
end looking into the fire. Auut Becky leait
back comfortably In her chair aud 1.h,Wo1
at the ceiling. Hot a word was spoken for a
long, long time. Presently Auut Becky be
gan to rock back and forth and bum good old
"Coronation" softly and slowly, and, after a
few measure, Deacon Podson broke in with
his cracked bass, out of tune and out of
time, but somehow, after all, In pleasing
harmony. For a long time they sat and
bummed that simple, old tune, the thumping
of Aunt Becky's loose rocker marking tho
time, ber voice creaking and scraping ovor
the highest notes, but her heart full of tho
sweet, peaceful music. I thought the ought
to be maxil&dj (U&tbAtpeaooSFcQught
always to stay right there and blunder his
bass notes in, rough though they were,
to give tonic to Aunt Becky's weakor tones.
Time sped along as the two old lovers sat
and sang, yet the deacon, who had come only
to wish a happy New Year, made no sign of
Koing. The sun had traveled quarter round
the house just to get a peep in at the little
west window and seo this comfortable old
couple; and the right was worth all the trou
ble of subduing the snowstorm for the pur
pose. Then, when the sun had dodged be
hind the leafless orchard, and finally hidden
his big, red face behind the little knoll where
sleep the dead of Tamarack, the scene be
came even more peaceful. THe' warm glow
of the (Ire filled the room with lovers' light,
and I saw Deacon Podson's hand stoal over
aud close upon the long, slender fingers of
his satisfied old sweetheart This was all.
No rapturous embraces, no lingering
kisses spoiled the peaceful scone. Auut
Booty's face, touched by the gleam
from the window In the stove,
seemed so full of tendor love and
gentle satisfaction that I said to myself ws
young people do not know what real, com
fortable love is. Never again can 1 believe
that true love does not run smoothly. It is
the heyday passion of youth thut finds ob
structions in ita course, but the steady cur
rent of Auut Becky's love, as she sat there
hand in hand with Deacon Podson, flowed on
as grandly and serenely aa a mighty river
out of torrent time.
At last the darkness closed in upon thorn
and with Bobby fast asleep in his chair, I luul
only to listen. "Was it wicked thus to play
the eavesdropper! Perhaps so. I thought so;
and I doubt not that was my prevailing
reason for doing it
"How long is it since Sister Podson passod
away f asked Becky, with quivering tender
ness of tone,
"It's nigh on sixteen year now," replied tho
deacon, with a heavy sigh, which was echoed
by Aunt Becky.
"Sister Podson was such a dear, good soul,"
said Aunt Becky, softly, "it seemed a pity we
couklu't a'kept her always. But God's will
"Yes, God's will be dono," repeated Deacon
Podson, with another deep-drawn sigh,
"She was so loviu'-like, aud good!" said the
dear old woman, without a shade of thnt
jealousy which shrivels tho heartless compli
ments of younger women under such condi-.
"Ye, Sister Boggs, she was "
"Cull me Becky, Deacon Podoon."
"An' you'll call me Josh J"
"Yes, J -J -Joshua," and I know Aunt Becky
put her gingham apron up to her faco. Ten
years of courtship, and I doubt not this was
the fir :t time she had addressed him by his
Christian name. I thought surely the deacon
would soo his chance and throw both arms
around ber neck, fold her to his big breast,
and say: "My Becky, my own, own Becky."
That is about what I should have done, but
Deacon Podson is older than I, and has passed
the gushing point of life.
- "I hev been a-thinkin' about somethin' a
big, long time, Sister Bo that is, B-Beck-y.
I've been a-thinkin' thet "
Vi'hnt on earth could tho man bo waiting

alyzed by the burden thrown upon ill I
strained my ear, but could catch no sound
Long, Ping, oh, how provokiugly long the
silence ilra'-'ed. At last I heard a kiss yes,
I could not have been mistaken, it must have
been a kiss and then a few soft sobs that
t-il l of tears of joy in Aunt Becky's eyes.
Had their souls read each other in the dark
ness, and flowed together in eloquent sii:ce
as their check? lay close against each other!
It must havo bxm so, for after Deacon Pod
son had gono away, Aunt Becky stood and
looked out at the window a long time; and
when she turned back and lighted the lamp
to put Bobby to bed thero were tears in her
eyes and a happy smilo on her lips that
plainly said a blessing; from the god of love
had fallen on her heart

Detroit Free Press.
Several weeks ago the late James Burns
told how, in lSofi, Daniel Webster paid a visit
to Detroit and was given a reception by the
citizens at tho old National hotel "I was
about "fi years old," said Mr. Bums, "and
had just risen to the distinction of being in
business for myself. For that reason, I sup
pose, at all events I know no other cause, I
was invited to 1 privately introduced, with
lot of other young business men, to Mr.
'Well, sir, I went fully impressed with tho
greatness of Mr. n coster, and I c n
fesa, somewhat elated over the honor
thus accorded me." We all assembled in tho
parlor, fifteen or twenty in number. Pres
ently Mr. Webster entered the room,
and we were introduced. A social, general
chat of perhaps half an hour followed. Mr.
eUtcr talking all over the room and with
no one in particular, after which we took our
leave. Tho remarkable feature which im
pressed me was the fact that Mr. Webster,
who had met fifteen or eighteen ordinary
young men for the first time and that in a
general way, called us all by name and with
out hesitation or mistake as we took our
"I've beard that memory of namos was oao
of Daniel Welstor'i strong points."
"But tho story Isn't finished," said Mr.
Burns. "Four years later I was in New
'York, buying goods. I bad not seen or
hardly thought of Mr. Webster in that time.
1 Lad just returned from Wall street to go
up Broadway, when I saw a magnificent
figure walking ahead of mo. Confident that
it was Mr. Webster, I quickened my pace,
passed him, and at the next corner stoppod
V get a fair look at him. I was not mis
teken In the man, and I was immediately
filled with a desire to speak to him, but I
was held back by tho thought that ho would

f-.ilowcd him a bljck beforo I could make up
my mind to accost him. Evorylwdy on
Broadway turned and looked admiringly at
him as he passed, aud finally I thought it
would be in keeping with western character
to Ijp a littlo forward. So with "How do
yoii d ), Mr. Webster" I stepped to his sido.
"Turning slightly and half stopping iu his
walk, he looked intently into my face an in
(taut ami said: 'Why, how do you do, Mr.
Burns? I'm glad to see you, sir.' And so we
walked together up to the Aster house. I
actually lelievo ho inquired after every man
ho met atiis Detroit reception, and that ho
called each man by Damn as though ihey
were his intimate friends. From thnt hour I
knew the value of a good memory, and from
thut hour I b'gan to cultivate my own."

Recognizing that theso and many other
vendettas had their origin in or were greatly
aggravated by the loose methods of herding,
a movement soon set iu to fonco the pastures,
aud in a little while all the large laud-ownera
had their tracts fenced. Then came the rail
roads, and those who held under their grants
fenced still larger tracts. Last of all caino
the great capitalists, foreign corporations,
and even noblemen, and inolosod pastures as
large as the state of Rhode Island. Oue man
owns a fenced tract thirty miles square, 109
square leagues, or 57(3,000 acres. Tracts flva
or ten miles square under one fence can
be found almost anywhore, even
near good-sized cities. One corpora
tion bos 1W0 miles of inclosing fence.
I am told that a foreign corporation has in
the Panhandle region one fence eighty-five
miles long in a nearly straight lino, but I
have not been able to verify this. Of course
such a frightful land monopoly as this is
against public policy, but the fence-cutters
concern themselves but little about that
They have present and very serious evils to
complain of. Having traveled through their
territory and seen with my own eyes how
easily a small holder may be injured accord
ing to law, I think it fair to give some speci
men cases showing that the "nestors" as they
call tho fence-cutters, have real grievances
Here is an old settler on a half section, who
has driven to the nearest pond or stream in a
dry time, for many years. Now comes a
capitalist or corporation, buys and fences up
all the luud between him and the water. His
ranch is simply worthless. Ho must sell it
for whatever the capitalist is willing to give.
Again and again have the small holders
insisted that they only wanted a way
to water; if tho state would pro
vide for roads all would be welL
But there is no law to establish roods across
theso plains. In many instances the land
lord would not leave a single opening in a
line thirty miles long. Iu tho Panhandle
they havo even Injught tho public land in
strips a mile wile, such strips extending
around and enclosing a vast central square of
public laud; they fence tho outside and use it
ail. Elsewhere they have bought up living
springs and running water, which are
proved to have been of free, public use for
Indian, Mexican, freighter, and rancher for
SI0 yours sinco the expedition of Coronado
inl.Ml. Whero tho capitalist has a small
trai't say five miles squaro his practice is to
graze his cattle outside on tho public Linda
and save his own pasture for winter. Of
course he has as good a right to the public
land in law as the small benler, but, in fact,
it drives tho latter away. These are but a
few of the evils of large laud-ownership in
Well, the small holders and herders bore it
so patiently at first that it seemed they, would
submit to anything. They complained, but
the legislature jaid no attention. The capi
talists simply said: "We don't want our
land cut up into littlo tracts by public roads;
it would double tho expense." Aud it was
not dono. Then tho fence-cutting began,
tome of "nesters" announced thoif plan to
raise h 1 on principle, till tho legislature
paid somo attention to them. It never would
listen as long as they were peaceful. But all
experience shows that unlawful methods of
seeking justice are. lileo the issue of legal
tender paper, the beginning of strife, or tho
letting out of water. Anybody can begin it;
very few indeed can stop it at the right time.
The small herders "raLed h 1 on principle,"
but the product soon got beyond tlie-ir princi
p'es. All tho lawless elements in which such
a region abounds turned themsolves loose;
every man who bad a private grudgo found
this a good way to gratify it, and it soon ap
peared there was lots of personal vengeance
left over from tho war, tho vendettas, the
Mexican troubles, and reconstruction. At
first they cut the wires on the big tracts, only
enough to oen a way to water; then they
cut on all the big ranches; next thoy chipped
up the wire and burned the posts, and in a lit
tle while squads were out cutting all fences,
even on half-section ranches, and swearing
that none of the pastures should be fenced
they should be public property forever. Fences
were cut within a few miles of San Antonio,
while I was thero. Towns are terrorized in
broad day, and to illustrate how far this
thing has gone, I mention Brownwood, Brown
county, which was mvadu(l by an armed force
of over 200 mounted "nesters." Tho sheriff
and citizens succeeded in bringing them to
a peaceful parley. (
Conjecture is weaned in tho attempt to es
timate tho damage done. It Is certainly very
great. In thirty counties it is estimate ! that
at least 3,000 miles of fencing has been de
stroyed. Men from Coleman county tell me
that county suffered most. Brown has also
suffered much. In a region something like a
hundred mil"s square, on tho upjier middle
Colorado, all improvement is ih eked; both
parties appear to bo waiting on tl;e action of
tho legislature, and as tho havo-nots outvote
the haves at least three to one, I am curious
to see how the politicians will treat it. Per
haps wo aro on the eve of a new agitation of
tho land tenure. It is certainly a serious
mutter for Texas. The action of her legisla
ture may give us important light on a new
