In fact, Aunt Betsy had been fast
asleep for more than half an hour,
when she started wide awake, to see a
spectral form at the window, and to
hear spiritual rappingson the panes.
In an instant more tho ghost had re
solved itself into a poor woman, whose
Eale face was made ghastly by a black
ood, and who, seeing the teapot and
Aunt Betsy's amiable face in conjunc
tion, had bethought her to ask for a
cup of tea.
Aunt Betsy was kindness Itself. Sho
opened the door to the woman, and
made her sit near the stove, and com
forted nor not only with tea and bread-and-butter,
but with raspborry Jam,
and finally went to the door again to
"speed the parting guest" with
amiable words and a silver coin.
"Ah, poor thingl" she said to her
self, as she went into the cozy sitting
room again. "How hard it is for her."
"Uard for whom?" asked Mrs. Ruffit,
who had returned to the sitting-room
well wrapped in the big dressing
gown, which somehow seemed more
voluminous than ever. "What's hard
for whom, Aunt Betsy?"
Ob, Rebecca," said the good old
lady, "a person has been here begging
a cup of tea. Her husband's dead, her
son's in Texas, and she's walking
twenty miles to try and find a daughter
who married a man named Smith, fif
teen years ago."
Oh yes," said Mrs. Ruffit, who
was only sentimentally sympathetic
with herself. "I see the old story!
And you gave her all the small change
you had in your pocket, add she went
away to spend it at the next gin-shop.
You are such a soft-hearted goose,
auntie. I only hope she didn't steal
anything Good gracious, Aunt
Betsy! where is my new dress?"
"Yon took it upstairs with you,
Becky," said Aunt Betsy.
Mrs. Ruffit ran upstairs with more
celerity than could have been expected
of fair, fat, and five-and-forty, and was
heard to open sundry closet-doors, to
rush about wildly, and to shriek. Then
she reappeared in the sitting-room.
'It's not up there!" she shrieked,
wringing her'hands. "Oh, Aunt Betsy,
tell me you've put it somewhere!
Don't say it's gone!"
A UUU I, BGO uvvv 111 iau uo guuv,
cried Aunt Betsy, Hying wildly up and
down, shaking the curtains, loosing
behind the sofa, even opening the six
inch drawer of a little work-table.
"Oh, Rebecca, I'm sure you took it
with you! I'll find it. Didn't you put
it in the parlor?"
Away the ladies flew with queer lit
tle squeals and moans.
Every spot in the house was ran
sacked, even the coal-cellar; but the
dress was not found.
At last Mrs. Ruflit fell into the arm
chair, fortunately as strong as it was
capacious, and sobbed:
"This is what has come of your
absurd fondness for drunken beggars,
Aunt Betsy. That woman of yours' has
carried off mv dress."
"She couldn't she hadn't a thing in
her hand," Baid poor Aunt Betsy.
Then conscience told her she had
left the woman alone for five minutes
while she took out the jam.
It was all discussed over and over
again, and the fact that in Miss Betsy's
absence the woman had put the new
dress through the window, and nicked
it up when she went out, was fully es
tablished. The police were notified, a descrip
tion of the dress and tbe woman put
in their hands, and a note of regret
written to the Dumsdays.
Mrs. Ruffit was persuaded to take
some tea and toast, and sat bewailing
her loss and rocking to and fro.
"A dress that cost me ninety dollars
before it was made, and twenty-five
for the making," sighed Mrs. Ruffit.
"I can't afford another like it this
winter, and Colonel Cowes was to bo
at tho Dumsdays', and he admires me
very much, Aunt Betsy, and it's most
annoying. I'd calculated on it two
weeks, and you must beg and pray a
tipsy tramp to come and take tea with
you on purpose to have my dress
"I didn't beg and pray her. She
asked me for a little tea, and she
wasn't tipsy," sobbed Miss Betsy.
"Oh, Rebecca Ruflit, how cruol you
"I suppose you expected me to
dance for joy,"" said Mrs. Ruffit. "I
must say that's too much to expect;
but I might be not only robbed, but
murderwl, if you could only give all
the money yon liked to drunken
tramps. That's your monomania,
Aunt Botsy, and I must say it if you
Then began a woful quarrel, in which
all tho reproaches that could be utter
ed on either side found vent.
The ladies wept, and sighod, and bo-
Thev spoke of partin?. Thev shook
their heads and rocked to and fro, and
the fire went out, and the oil burnt low
in tho lamp. The clock struck ten
and eleven, and still the ladles found
new recriminations to utter.
At last twelve o'clock came. The
carriages which bore the departing
guests homo from the Dumsdays' great
party were Heard to roll past, and
Mrs. Ruflit burst into a fresh Hood of
"I feel so dreadfully sick Aunt
Betsy," she said: "so beavv in everv

know excitement is bad for mo. Dr.
Sweetman says I'm predisposed to

"Ah, my poor child," cried Aunt
Botsy, "you really are! Oh, do let
mo take your things off, and put you
to bod, and send for a doctor. Come
upstairs at once."
Mrs. Ruflit assented.
Aunt Betsy helped her upstairs,
opened the bed, laid out the white
night-gown, and began to help her
nieco off with tho doublo-gown. She
slipped the big loops of cord from the
big buttons, and began tugging at tho

"Why, how did I come to do such a
thing?" gasped Mrs. Ruflit in amaze

There was nobody to blame, and
nothing to do but to make it up with
Aunt Betsy, who accorded a gracious
forgiveness, and retired meekly; but
up in her own room she indulgod her
self in a little burst of triumph.
"'Tisn't mo that's made a fool of

she tied her night-cap, and blew out

A Story of Thnrman.
Thurman's stories Hre undoubtedly
like George Washington's; but years
ago he had a habit that also resembled
another of Washington's, and even
went so far as to suggest the far famed
"army In Flanders." The writer re
calls an incident which happonod while
the groat Ohio senator was living in
Chillicothe, in the days when that se
vere school teacher and pious church
member, William D. Wesson.was may
or of "the ancient metropolis," as Chil
licothe, the first capital of Ohio, is
Mr. Wesson was a severe disciplina
rian, and after having governed the
"first society" bad boys of the city,
Including two wild brothers of Mrs.
President Hayes, for a term of years,
he was elected mayor. Elated with
his elevation, Mr. Wesson looked upon
all the inhabitants as pupils, to be
watched and punished. Under his in
fluence the city council passed an or
dinance against swearing and all pos
sible forms of profanity, and many a
luckless lawyer or doctor was mulcted
in fines for careless oaths at the rate of
a dollar a word. One day Mr. Wesson
had a friendly conversation with Mr.
Thurman for an hour. Soon after which
he sent Thurman a judgment of . fines
($17) for fifteen oaths and cost of pros
ecution. Thurman yielded himself to
arrest, and went with Marshal Bratton
to Mayor Wesson's office. "May it
please your honor." said Thurman, "I
am a lawyer, and wish to appear in my
own defense." "The court is willing
to hear you," said the mayor in most
earnest gravity. "I move you to set
asido this 'judgment, because a man
cannot be tried for crime unless he is
present in person or by counsel." "You
are right," said Wesson, "the judg
ment is set aside, but the crime will
cost you more, because We will now
have the trial." "All right," said
Thurman; "lam ready to proceed with
the case. I know tho indictment But
where are the witnesses?" "We need
no witnesses, Mr. Thurman; for you
know you swore those fifteen oaths, and
that I heard you- So it is idle to talk
about witnesses." "Well, may it please
your honor, I move to quash the in
dictment Because, first, a man can
not be made to criminate himself, and,
second, a judgo of a court cannot ap
pear before himself as a witness."
"You are right, Mr. Thnrman; the in
dictment is quashed and the case dis
missed." lie was never troubled after
this for his freedom of speech. Haiti'
Ktiqnette of the Street Car.
In an editorial on -Etiquette of the
Car," the Philadelphia Tnius, among
other things, says: "The man who
sits with his legs across, his elevated
foot serving as a kind of trip for every
body going in or out of the car, tho
man who sits with his knees spread out
twice the width of the single seat he
pays for is also getting his abuse. The
dude who sits sideways, legs across
and all, looking out of the car win
dow, taking at least three seats when
he only pays for one, is to bo straight
ened out And tho women who allow
their skirts to take twice as much
room as tho women themselves and re
fuse to contract them are to bo made
to "sit up close" and begin to bohave.
The trouble Is not merely one of man
ners or the absence of them, but of
morals. The nverage citizen of both
sexes has been thinking so long of his
or her rights that it is most difficult to
think of the rights of other people.
