1 could write to yon a sonnet
Fair Dame Nature haa den!frned you;
Fair must everybody find yon;
Yet I would not alt behind jou
At the play.
With your Oainboronfrh before me
Down tbe aisle.
Vengeful feelings gather or me,
Though 1 smile.
Cruel as cruet priests of Brahma
Could I be. when thrilling drama
Seems a flowery panorama
Of a mile.
All the Tbeffpian emotion
Sms quite flat;
J hare not the vaguest notion
What they're at.
1 have no appreciation
Of a nplenjid alluatinn.
For I'm lost In contemptatioi
Of your hat.
That you won't miuDlrlan4 me
Now I pray.
Whatsoever yoo command me,
I atlmfre you deeply, mind you.
Captivating ever tlnl you;
But 1 would not sit behind you
At a piny.

You look surprised, but such is the
fact. Here's the story:
"Kivc years ago I met the girl who
first inspired in me the fever called
love. When I think of it I doubt if I'm
over it: but I've passed the crisis; it
don't matter. It was while I was at
ISchlcn visiting my college friend,
George Walters, that I first met Mary
Miannon. We became friends and our
friendship fast ripened into love. There
is no use of prolonging this part of the
Mory, for after love of course comes
marriage. But my marriage did not
come. It was to occur, though, as we
had agreed, in Ilecemlier. j
"I came home deliriously happy, and
worked hard to get the nest ready.
Everything went well, and IKjcember
drew near. The ceremony was to take
place at three p. m. on the Ibth. As it
is one hundred miles from here, I in

There the first of a series of misfortunes
met mc. My tailor was to blame for
that one. I did not get my outfit out
of his shop till ten a. m. on the eve of
the 17th. The difficulty looked small
then, as I knew I could take the six

time for the event I made my way to
the depot that morning in a driving
storm of sleet; bat I didn t mind that

The real facts I don't know, but I do
know that the train was two hours
late. I must have walked more than
half the distance to Kelden in tramping
lip anil down the platform waiting

side myself with impatience, it came
putting along and we were soon flying
through the country at a good speed.
"I knew that at such a rate I would
reach Ilelden long enough before three
o'clock. I was just beginning to con
gratulate myself on my good luck when
the whistle for 'down brakes sounded,
and onr train began to slow up. Win
dows were hastily thrown up, and soon
the cause of our stop was explained.
We had run into a big freight wreck.
"Word had not reached the last sta
tion we had left in time to prevent our
starting. Consequently there we were,
out in the country, with a dozen cars,
more or less, piled up and scattered
over the track, while I was sixty miles
from Kelden. That was the third mis
fortune," and Hal wiped the perspira
tion from his face, as if he were again
living over the incidents of that day.
"Had I been yonr guardian I could
not have helped you through the diffi
culties you have mentioned any better
than yon helped yourself, could I?"
"No, perhaps not But you could
have prevented the fourth mistake and
th.it was the oue that lost me Mary.
"The debr's was cleared away and
our train pulled out again. Five hours
after the appointed time for the wed
ding we puffed into belden our train
did, 1 mean. As soon as I struck the
platform I hailed a 'cabby,' with '440
Jefferson avenue,' and jumping in we
were soon w hirling through the streets.
Rain was coming down in torrents and
the wind blew a hurricane.
"Arrived at our destination I told the
driver to wait till I gave him orders to
go, as I did not know what difficulty I
might have in convincing Mary that I
could nut help the delay. The general
appeaiance of things seemed rather un
familiar but I laid that to the alarm.
mud hastily stepping to the door 1 rang
the bell. The house seemed strangely
silent and dark. While waiting I
thought I remembered a yard to the
house Mary lived in, while that one was
built up to the pavement. These
thoughts were running mechanically
through my mind when the door sudden
ly opened and Mary appeared.
" 'Did you think I had deserted you,
darling?1 I asked, quickly imprisoning
one of her hands in both of mine, while
I gallantly stooped and my mustache
swept her face.
' 'What do you mean, sir?' and 'Who
are you? came in ringing tones from
my supposed Mary, as she quickly
snatched her hand from mine.
"The strange voice aroused me first
and then I understood why things
looked strange. I had come to the

making my most polite bow. I thought

miss, but I have made two such foolish
mistakes that the thought of it upset
me for a second. I wanted to go to

"t'ertainly! I am sorry you made a
mistake in the place.
"Thanking her for her sympathy
(which, by the way, did not help me
much, when I remembered my first
greeting with her), I got away some
how, and was driven back to the depot
to find that it would be several hours
before another train left for Kelden.

wait till morning. The telegram was
sent, but if she got it it must have been
after it was too late.

that much poorer.
"I passed a restless night and was
glad when it was over, and I was again
on my way to itclden. I didn't make
any mistake that time, and when I
reached the Shannon bouse I received
a warmer reception than I expected
"Dili yon make it all right with
her?" asked Jack, interestedly.
"I didn't see her. Her father met me
and politely informed me that they had
no use for such delinquents, when the
delay was caused in the manner that it
was; that I could go back to my other
darling the one I had left the night be

'I tried to explain, but he slammed
the door in my face, and, of course,
that ended the interview with him.
Kut I staid in town all that day hoping
to see Mary. In the afternoon I wrote
her a letter of explanation and gave a
boy half a dollar to deliver it. In a half

In the summer of 1877, says the IV
troit Free Press, a dusty, tired-lookini;
party of horsemen, forty in nnmlier,
were wending their way over the roll
injr prairie land of western Nebraska.
In the lead and to the rear rode a dt
tachment of ITnele Sam's blue-coated
soldiers commanded by a bearded cap
tain whotte experience on the frontier
had made his name well-known. Id
the midst, carefully guarded, were a
half dozen Cheyenne Indians, and fol
lowing' them came ten citizens whose
ffarb betokened them to be settlers of
the plain, and whose jaded horses
showed that they had been hard ridden.
The soldiers were jubilant over their
capture, the Indians were stolidly indif
ferent, while the plainsmen wore sul
len countenances which brooded no
good for the red prisoners. The In
dians were a portion of a raiding party
that two davs before had attacked out
lying settlements and massacred sev
eral entire families. 1 he citizens were
a party that had been formed to follow
the Indians and avenge their outrage.
and that morning they had surrounded
then foe and were bent on their annihila
tion, when the troopers had suddenly
come upon the scene, and, to the disgust
of the settlers, captured the whole party,
and thus robbed them of their revenge.
An hour later a camp was selected by
the side of aclear stream which cistirsed
over a white sandy bottom. One of the
citizens who had not dismounted rode
up t the group of Indians and ad
dressed a wrinkled buck whose hard
countenance clearly bespoke his blood

The Indian, seeing- he was attracting
notice, proudly straightened himself.
Fastened to the redskin's much-be

three scalps, all from the fair heads of
little children, and one of them a yel
low curl of a baby. Quick as thought
the man's pistol came from the holster
on his saddle, and crack! the redskin

they mounted and started in pursuit one

I saw and heard them all. Just as we knew
them. Your brothers and ours. Your old
generals and ours. No longer arrayed fit
opposing ranks, but side by side as bn-thr-r.
Once again I heard the steady tramp ami

On a sunny slope, in moat pellucid air. be

From the Willowy Kerry, where the River
of Time is crossed over; w here, so long ago,
Stonewall Jackson crossed over and rested
beneath the shadow of the trees; I saw an
escort advancing up the lines it came, sur

thrill of the olden days came the wild cheer

sonage. My acquaintance with
your remedy, Boschee's German
Syrup, was made about fourteen
years ago, when I contracted a Cold
which resulted in a Hoarseness and
a Cough which disabled me from
filling my pulpit for a numlicr of
Sabbaths. After trying a Physician,
without obtaining relief I cannot
say now what remedy be prescribed
I saw the advertisement of your
remedy and obtained a bottle. I
received such quick and permanent
help from it that whenever we have
had Throat or Bronchial troubles
Bince in our family, Boschee's Ger

remedy and always with favorable
results. I have never hesitated to
report my experience of its use to
others when I have found them
