In n city not n thousand tulles from
Hartford is a private sporlsiutvu's asso-1
ciatioti, and every year, iu August or I
September, they liavo a grand cxeur-1
nioti to a favorite pond, a day's journey
off, and soruo twelve ruile3 into tho for
est, away from any habitation, and
spend some two or threo weeks.
Duo of tho number who had been
brought up in tho good old puritanic
way to reverence the Sabbath, told tlio
writer how near ho cauio to lUliing Sun
day. Some of tho party spent Satur
day evening lishiug, so as to havo a
supply for Sunday. Suuday morning,
my informant says, ho aroso at break
of day. All wero in their bunks, sound
asleep, and snoring as only tired
sportsmen cau. Pulling on bis pants
and slippers ho went to tho boat to seo
what success tho evening tishcrniun
had. There wero eels and bullheads
lying iu tho bottom of the boatiu abun
dance. In tho stern of tho boat was a
fishing pole with tho line in tho water.
"Thinking it was very careless to leavo
it in that way, I began pulling in tho
line, when something struck tho bait
and ran out with tho lino at a rapid
"What was 1 to do? You know I
never lish Sunday; but thero was polo
and lino goings overboard unless I pull
ed them in. 1 thought it was right to
save property nnd landed a threo
pound pickerel. As tho bait was on
the hook I concluded to throw it in
tho water and leave it as I found it and
say nothing about it. But tho bait had
no sooner struck tho water than thero
was a splash, and whirr went tho reel
again. Gracious! What next? You
know nothing would tempt mo to lish
Sunday; but I unist save property and
iu so doing landed another pickerel as
large as tho lirst.
"1 always like to leave borrowed
property where I find it, and tho lino
was thrown in again, and I started
for the shore, when, to my surprise,
the whizzing sound of the reel painfully
greeted my ear. I hastened back jiibt
in time to catch the pole as it was be
ing drawn overboard. Jly conscienco
rebuked mo for going near tho boat,
for you know it is strictly against my
principles to lish Sunday; but I must
save tho pole, lish or no lish, and in
comes another largo pickerel. This
time tho bait was taken, anil I was
right glad of it, for I now could leavo
the pole and line where I found them
witliout any danger of their being lost.
"I hastened back to camp and luck
ily found all asleep and as musical as
when I left. Hastily undressing my
self, I jumped into my bunk undiscov
ered. After a time tho cook got up
went to the boat and came back with tho
pickerel, exclaiming: 'See here, boys,
how is it that you catch pickerel in tho
night?' This aroused tho sleepy fish
ermen, and they declared that thero
wero no pickerel when they left. They
accused tho cook of catching them
Sunday. He lirmly protested his inno
cence and said: 'If I had just taken
them they would now have been alive.'
All this time I was apparently sleep
ing soundly. When I got up they wero
shown to me as tho three largest pick
erel that had been taken during tho
week; but how they came to bo iu tho
boat was a mystery. Tho final conclu
sion was that tho groedy (isli must
have jumped in tho boat to get some
thing to cat, and forgot to jump back
again. This to my mind was a very
They wero cooked for our breakfast,
but I had no appetite for tho dainty re
past. All Sunday my conscienco was
ill at ease, and I read my biblo by tho
hour, and I don't believo I could tell
whether I was reading in Genesis or
Revelations tho latter, I think, be
cause visions of pickerel wero beforo
me all tho time. Not a chapter could
I read without hearing the whizzing of
the reel, or seeing those yellow befiies
turn up. Now, I tell you, that is tho
nearest I ever came to lisliing Sunday,
and I don't believo anything would
tempt me to get into a boat again Sun
day, except to save some one from
drowning." llirtf rd Times.
The Story Mr. Smitli Vouches For.
A tough story, but a true one, conies
to us from Jones county. During tho
visit of the cyclone which worked so
much destruction to life and property
there were two little negroes asleep oil
a bed in a house on Mr. William Smith's
plantation. 'The cyclone tore the houso
to fragments, and, lifting the lloor on
which stood (he bod containing the
two piccaninnies, carried it a milo
ft way over tho tops of tall trees and de
posited it amid the ruins of another
house that had shared a fearful fate.
A tree fell across tho bed, breaking
down ono cud of it, and then lightning
set lire to the bedding. Tho work of
the storm was so great and destructive
that tho people who had secured them
selves wero afraid to emergo from their
hiding-places for some time, but ono
after another finally went out to ren
der what assistance they could to tho
suffering. Discovering' smoke issuing
from the debris of tho negro house, a
farmer ran to and saw the burning bed,
with two little negroes lying in it.
That they wero alive never entered his
head, but judge of his surprise when,
on reaching tncni, he found Ihey were
alive and sound asleep, not haing
been awakened during the storm. Tliey
wero promptly rescued, and when
aroused and seeing that they were in a
strange locality and iu the open air
they were nearly frightened to death.
They had been shaken up and knocked
about, carried up into the air above tho
tops of trees and then dropped into tho
broken shell of another house and yet
were not awakened. The story is a
touh one, but is votieled for by Mr.
Smitli, on whoso plantation they lived.

lawyer, tired of being briefless and
feeloss here in San Francisco deter
mined a year ago to establish himself in
somo interior county seat. A few
months after ho wrote me that he had
won it. It was a hard case, he wrote,
ono that required much study and in
genuity, but he had won it, and assur
ed mo that ho considered his fee fifty
dollars, I believe as well earned. His
client was an old countryman, simplo
and unsophisticated, and he had en
deavored to post him on tho ways and
doings of courts, so that he should at
tend tho trial without embarrassment
or trepidation. By his coolness in
court tho client did honor to his lawyer.
My friend came down hero to spend
tho holidays, and wo met. I asked
him, laughingly, whother he bad
hal another case since his first. He
looked at mo curiously, and told mo
that something incredible had happen
ed in regard to that affair. That same
morning ho met his former client, and
over an appetizer thoy had discussed
"That only cost mo a hundred doll
ars," said tho client.
" "A hundred?" asked tho lawyer.
"Yes I took tlio judgo out for a
drink, and gave him fifty dollars.
That's why I was so cool iu court"
Tho feelings of my young lawyer
friend can bo better imagined than de
scribed. StKl ho looked upon it as a
good joke. 1 rather spoilod his amuse
ment by asking him whether he had re
turned to his client his "well-earned
fee. "--Sax Francisco Nctvs-Letkr,
