A WASHERWOMAN'S CHILD.
A little swiss muslin apron, with ruf
leon, pockets and ribbons, is a very se
ductive thing, even when tossed with
artless carelessness upon the fancy table
of a charity fair; but who can paint its
magic power upon an unwary youth
when its fluttering ribbons span a slen
der dainty waist and the pink-tipped
fingers of two plump little hands play
at hide-and-seek in its apologies for
Could a mortal man help stopping to
speak to Tinle Blair, as she stood be
hind the great album of antographse,
alert and ready to register subscriptions
as fast as they were secured 1
It must have been an apron that made
her so radiantly charming, for no other
table made such a stoppage in the lite
of travel, although the hall was lined
with tables, temples and stands, covered
with baits for the charitable, and pre
sided over by the beauty and fashion of
Offport Weekly, and if a newspaper is
not to be believed, then what is 1
Still, in s:ite of facts, most all the
young men hid congregate around that
little table of Tinie's. She had shed a
small shower of tears when it was con
descendingly offered to her, but it was
that or nothing, and it would not even
have been that if the good rector had
not been so obsolete in his notions as to
suppose that the child of a shiftless
drunkard, whose widow took in wash
ing, was fit to associate with the daugh
ters of the upright and solid men who
sat in the body of the church and
solemnly put their regular contribu
tions in the weekly plate, carefully
pushing their alms well under, that
their five cents need not be known to
However, having seen hislittle parish
ioner pointedly left out in all the prepa
rations for the ladies' festival, he
did insist, and carried his point, thatshe
should have a position among the fair
The richest old woman in the congre
gation had donated to the charitable en
terprise a huge collection of stupendous
ly uninteresting autographs which were
not even genuine, but attested fac simi
lies of the signature of every man of note
-front Moses to Treasurer Spinner-who
had ever been rash enough to put his
hame on paper.
The amiable first directress of the sew
ing society was a Talleyrand in petti
coats. She brought the two ditticulties
together, and let one take care of the
other; that is to say, if that low, odious
little creature was to be forced upon
them, lot her undertake the book, which,
of course, would never be disposed of,
but which must appear, or the offended
donor would promptly remove herself
and her fortune to the rival church.
After the ecstacy caused by the dear
old rector's pledge that she should have
a share in the delight of waiting at the
fair, it was something of a heartbreak
when, by request, she ,resented herself
before the committee of arrangements, to
lind herself appointed to a most imen
She might not have known, in her in
nocence, that it was a station, so ab
horred, but the ill-concealed mirth of
the others at her appointment toit made
her aware of the small esteem in which
it was held.
Then there were other drawbaceks, and
altogether it was a sad little face that
Tinie wore as she swept off the porch of
thelittle tumble-down black cottage that
she called home.
"There's no us trying," she said, as she
bent her lovely curly head lower and
lower to keep thetears oot ulgbt. '"No
use trying to be like girls who have
money and nice houses, and clothes
they're not ashamed of. I declare, if it
wasn't for mother, I'd wish I was dead."
"What did you say, Tnie t" said her
mother, looking up from the ironing
" I don't know ; I think I must have
been talking to myself." said the girl,
looking in, with her forget-mse-not blue
eyes dewy with tears. "But, mother',
after all, I think I won't go the fair."
Mlrs. Blair finished ironing a colar
before she sloke; then with a lpleasant
lighting up of her worn face, she said:
"If you want to stay at home be
cause you have nothing to wear, stop
worrying, dear, for I've thought it all
out. I'll press out my old merino for
you-the rustiness won't show at night
-and we'll cut up your little old white
dress and make. a fancy apron like one I
had here to do up for the young lady
that boarded at the hotel, last Summer;
but we'll take the ribbons off' your hat
to put on it; you can put them back be
A cloud at the idea of the disreput
able old merino, a moment's doubt at
the possibility of the fancy apron, then
a full burst of sunshine at the quick
mental picture of her pretty self in the
becoming costume for once, and Tinie
danced up to hug her mother, with
"Oh, mammy darling! What nice
things mothers are 1"
Low as the misery of a drunken hus
band had made Mrs. Blair's position, she
was a lady by birth and education, and
had brought up her two children with all
the refinement possible in their misfor
tunes. She was proud of her pretty
daughter, and felt most keenly the
slighting coldness with which the young
ladies of Offport treated her. She was
glad now that a taste of p)easere seemed
to be thrown in her way.
But, although the plans are made, not
a step could be taken toward their exe
tion till a small basket of clothes could
be finishnd andsent Off to the hotel ; but
they were quickly done and dispatched
by Bobby, Tlnie's small but very wide
awake brother, and then both mother
and daughter gave every thought and
energy to preparing the simple costume
the latter was to wear.
Bobby proceeded on his errand after
the usual manner of small boys, who
have so much business of their own to
attend to that it is with difficulty they
can keep their attention fixed on the
special mission npon which they are sent.
He found the young gentleman to
whom he was to deliver the clothes, and,
pitying the benighted ignorance of a
stranger to the village, kindly spent half
an hour of his valuable time enlighten
ing him concerning its affairs, the fair
quite naturally coming in for thelargest
share of mention.
The handsome young stranger listened
with flattering attention, and when Bob
by was beguiled by his interest into giv
ing agraphic account of his sister's social
snubbing by the other girls, and, told of
the meanness which had assigned the
poorest position to her,his sympathy was
outspoken in language which, less Ipious
than energetic, much delighted Bob.
Yes, it must have l,een the apron that
maderTinie so irresistible that customers
hung around her vicinity, apparently un
conscious that just opposite a black-eyed
Rebecca waited to draw lemonade from
an unfailing spring for their delectation,
or that Flora's temple, just beyond, was
crowded with attendant vestals, eager
to supply button-hole bonquets at ten
cents apiece and pin them on without
Even if the strangers came, Tinie
thought, there would be but a dimn pros
pect of their looking at the ponderous
volume she presided over; neither would
any one else, she said to herslf, ruefully,
half inclined to give up and run home.
But the dear old face of the rector
showed itself at the lower entrance, andt
he, the first visitor, came in with pleas
ant wordls and smiles.dispensed on every
side. but walked straight by all the
booths to hers. His stay was short, ,lt
he left her pretty face bright with smuiles
and flushed with pleasure.
She forgot her annoyance and before
she had to encounter any more looks of
disdalin her attention was claimed by
firesh visitors. She had forgotten all
absut the expected strangers that the
others were on pins and needles to see,
till her eyes caught a flutter of..excite
ment, among the fair selers of fency
wares on the other stands.
Murmurs very unflattering to his pro
tege began to reach the old clergyman's
ears, and he dragged a chair to her side
and took his seat behind the table to
lend her the shield and protection of his
presence, just as the diplomatfirset diree
tress sailed up to the floral temple and
i seraphically suggested to her own ma
turen daughters and the other attendants
that, as some people's efronterl was
disgusting to all decent people, it might
be well for them to take pity on those
who were pulrposely detained at a cer
tain stand and carry theirflowers about.
So Flora's fair nymphs came out
of their neglected bowers and flitted art
lessly hither and thither with an ela
borately studied "Who'll buy t" ex
pression on their various faces, and full
baskets of boutonniers in their hands.
Tinie thought her success in getting
names had melted the lee, and the girls
were gathering about to congratulate
her, but did not even seem to see her, so
busily were they pinning the bouton
nieres to the coats of her patrons.
The "Commodore," as the rest of his
party called one of their number, was
easily ensared. Not only did he submit
to being ornamented, but he made anx
ious inquiries for the larger bouquets,
and broke off his gay little conversa
tion with Tinie to rush W to the floral
temple with one of itd fair nympli;'
"'He must be a remarkably (*aritable
man," was her little remark aside to
the rector, as the commodore proceeded
to take unlimited shares in the auto
The rector had been watching the
frank, highbred face of the young fel
low, and, unworthy as he was, he knew
enough to trust him; so he paid no heed
to the nods and winks from his wife
across the hall, who was being informed
by the able first directress of the dan
ger a girl in Tinie's peculiar position
ran from the over-familiarity of the
strange young man.
Bobby, the candid young brother,
hovered about Time's stand, hoping for
a recognition from his friend of the day
before; but much scrubbing, hair-out
ting and clothes-brushing had so trans
formed the ingenuous youth that he
passed unrecognized till he forced him
into notice by a whispered demand to
know if his sister wasn't as he said,
eleventy thousand times handsomer
than those old oats who wouldn't speak
to her because her mother was a wash
The commodore's bewilderment at the
,question only lasted a moment. Then he
saw it clearly. This pretty girl, with
her wildrose face and shy, bewitching
ways, was the abused sister he had al
ready felt a chivalrous pity for when her
brother told her story. He remembered
it all now-the old, worn-out dress, the
pretty white apron that was to cover it
-and what a fascinating little apron it
was, all covered with ruffles and pufftes
and flummery, as his untutored mascu
line tongue would have described it.
It must be that very apron that was
playing the mischief with him, for he
had never been so fascinated by any girl
before. Suddenly a wild desire to pose
seas the irresistible bit of property came
over him. Would she sell it for sweet
Then the cruelty of securing it, and
leaving her to the mortification of expo
sing the rusty merino unprotected by its
friendly shelter, rushed over him, and
he took Bob into a short consultation,
which resulted in an interview with the
majestic first directress, who was prom
enading the hall with the bland manner
of a shop walker, or of one who mali
ciously holds a levee, but keeps an eye
on the guests that they escape not with
The nuave lady, little guessing for
whom it was destined, assisted him to
select from one of the tables an apron of
far more elegant character than the one
he coveted; and he, with Bobby's assie
tance, began to negotiate an exchange
of aprons, with ten dollars to boot, to be
added to the fair receipts.
Tinie lunshed up at the offer, but the
bystanders urged her to accept it, and
even the clergyman whispered his ap
She couldn't go to church without the
ribblon she had plucked from her hat to
adnor the apron, was the hesitating con
fession she whispered back; which whis
per being overheard by Bob, he speedily
communicated to his new friend, who
surprised him by being too stingy to sur
render the ribbons, but begged to be al
lowed to add to the exchange a whole
belt of bonnet ribbon, to be procured in
the morning, when the sun and the vil
lage milliner made the usual silnulta
Tinie, who had not courage to resist
so much opposing force, made the ex
change and entiely overthrew the com
modore's theory that the apron did it,
by appearing even more dazzling and
raidant, in the new one; but he vwas
satisfied with his bargain.
The list was full now, and such a
merry excitement attended the drawing
that all the other parts of the hall were
deserted, while the crowd flooked around
to look and listen. One of the yatcht
ompmany drnew the winning numbnr,
and with smine dismay ftbnd 'inself
the owner of the album; but withtgreat
presence of mind he presentad tit o the
rector, who, with Just one momentary
glance of ;waggishnea .his a blessed
face, begged to be allowed to give it to

who was obligedi hire a man to carry

SALT LAxi CITY, Jan. 184now bas
fallen almost continuously in Washatjha
Mountains since Christmias. The ntdn
tains surrounding the mOining town .of
Altar are steep anudthe tree, have been
out off. The tramway shaeds of the
Waheatchie and Jordan Valley BRil
road have beep, swept away in several
places for five miles below Altar, render
ing ingress or egress almost impossible.'
Two weeks ago a snow elide carried
away a man named Darby. 'The storm
increased in fury with the opening of
last week. On Wednesday night show
fell in sheets and the wind became a
hurricane. About ten o'elock a snow
slide carried, away the flagst , one
house and four hundred feet of ralread
sheds, and swept across the flat, and
creek to the opposite mountain. Later
another slide passed over the Victoria
and Imperial houses, burying two men,
who dug their way oa~ lan ten hours;
continuing, it swept away the Grizzly
boarding house, in which were Mrs.
Jonathan Haskins tnd four children,
Charles Simons, Robert Howarth 'and
Evan Morris; of these Mrs. Haskins
and her daughter Jane, Howarth and
Morris were killed. Another slide
smashed and buried the Toledo works
and boarding-house, killing Chas. Bur
bridge and Frank Laporte.
On Thursday and Friday work was
stopped at the principal mines and many
of the men left the canon for the valley.
The storm continued and increased in
fury, the wind blowing a gale and piling
the snow'jnst over the crest of the hill
north of Altar, on the Altar side. The
great weight started another slide, half
a mile wide, on Friday night, which
would have completed the demolishing
of Altar, but that was split and par
tially diverted by a flat area just above
the head of the main street. It. struck
a large and heavily built store, in which
five men had gathered for safety. Two
of them, who were sleeping in the see
ond story, were thrown out, but were
comparatively unhurt. Three had taken
refuge in the basement and built a fire,
namely, John Fitzgerald, P. B. Lee and
Wm. Hollingshead. The house was
crunshed in on them and fired from the
stove, and they perished.
Richmond Williams and John Wash
ington, who remained to look after
Joab Lawrence's property, with instruc
tions to sleep in the tunnel, are missing.
The avalanche swept away every build
ing owned by Joab Lawrence's & Co.,
together with their tramway, inflicting
a loss of $20,0(00. It buried the Buffalo
House, but three men had returned into
the tunnel and were rescted exhausted.
Fifty pereons came down last night,
leaving about twenty, who, for various
reasons, could not get away. The trip
down was fearful. Leaving their homes
with nothing but their clothes on their
backs, the women wallowed through
the snow as best they could, the men
carrying the children.
There remains enough mountain slope
still unmoved to complete the destru c.
tion of the towon. It may slide any mo
ment. Eight miles of the Upper Big
Cottonwood is said to be one of huge
slide, covering everything. A big slide
in Mayfield 'Gulch has blocked the
creek for 400) yards and made quite a
lake. While there is no loss of life yet
reported from Big Cottonwood, miners
are leaving the cannon as fast as possi
ble, and when the snow becomes deep
and heavy on the steep mountain slopes
an avalanche may be started by a party
walking across their face or concussion.

at Salford, which, it is supposed, wre
causedby aFenian attempt toblowui athb
armory of the infantry barsacks, was
heard for a distance of a mile. The bar
racks are situated In a very popllou&
district. One woman was desperately,
and a boy, it is feared, fatally Ipjured.
There were several thousand stands of
arms in the armory at the time.
There was a ventilator in the wall be
tween the shed of Salford Barracks and
the street, and one. theory is that ex
plosive materials were dropped through
this ventilator. It is also asserted that
the regiment now quartered in the bar
racks contains many Irish, and that Fe
nianism had been previously suspeeted
It is rumored that a fuse has been
found on the ground near the shed. The
damage is more serious than at first re
ported. In the outer walls of the bar
racks a hole was blown large enough to
admit a man.
BERLIN, Jan. 16.-Crown Prince Fred

said he felt especially aggrieved because
the movement was invading the schools
and universities. He could not conceive
how intellectual men could support a
movement which was to be condemned
for its tendencies and its aims. He hoped
the movement would soon die out, for it
was impossible that such an unhealthy
condition ofthings should continue.
NATCHEZ, Jan. 17.-On the steamer

a shooting affray ocomTed between two
colored passengers which will result in

stories about the occurrence, but the
most likely one is that Eaton attempted
to ravish the wife of the shooter. The
wife's screams brought the hushand to
her side and he drew his pistol and shot
Eaton in the head, the ball penetrating
his brain. The shooter escaped. It is
reported on the streets ':to-day that the

who has been missing since January 6,
