JSccne: A railway compartment.
"Madame, do you object to smoking?"
No reply. The iuestion is repented with

"Ihi it if von dare!" exclaimed Mine.

"There is a compartment for smok

bemoaning his lost Havana.

Nell ('. wvnnc is lieing as cruelly treated
by scandalous tongues ns in those days
when she was the favored mistress of
Charles II. Charles Ilrudlaugh and
other radicals w ho hove no respect for
royal lineage and even some conserva
tive, like Louis Jennings, lormerly a New
Vork editor nnd now a member of par
liament, lire going about demanding
that the pensions be withdrawn from
the nobleman, whose onlv merit is his
descent trom a harlot, The chief bone of
contention is the icnaion paid to thr
duke nt St. Auxins as 'mmterot nnwks.
The duke is a tlrsccuant from one of Nell
(pwvnne'a rovnl infanta. The nnrtieulnr
one that Nclf held out of the window ns

if he didn't make him a duke she would

A striking illustration of thequnntitv
of bogus coins now in circulation in this
city was given in a down-town store
yesterday. A customer who hud made
n small purchase tendered a 60-cent piece
in payment. The clerk pushed It back
across the counter and shook his head.
"That half dollar's a little too new." lie
remarked. "What do vou mean? de
manded the customer. "I'll show you,"
replied Hie elerk, picking up the coin and
letting it full shn-ply on the counter.
The shock caused the counterfeit tn fly
into fragments. It was n glittering
sham composed of glass with a thin ve
neer of inctnl. There seems to lie good
reason tor thinking thnt n gang nf coun
terfeiters and their accomplices are work
ing Chicago. An astonishing qunntity
of bad coins is now nut among citiiens,

by the name of old Tom that was the
first nigger that ever Peter and Lucy
had. Tom was some eighteen years old
when Peter's duda give him to them, and
old Tom and Peter bad been brought np
together, and Peter done just as nini h

in debt, thinking they could work ami
pay oul, and so things were moving
erloiig when old Tom, over yonder on
the road, went to his young tnaxter and
mislTiws and told 'em he wanted to marry
one of old Squire Crawford's nigger gul.
Tom's master wus willing for him to
marry the girl that he loved, but the old
quire he lix up and liefore nnylHsly
thought itIhiui it he'd sold out his plan
tatiou and put out for Texas. Folks
ware crazy on Texas them days, and it
didn't tnko er fellow long to git off for

"After Squire t'rawtord went off to
Texas old Turn never was the same fel

like he niwtiys hud und he'd set erround

noticed it and tried to git him to forget
the girl that wont off to Texas, but they
couldn't, mid old Tom he begin to talk
erround ennoii the other niggers that
slavery was wrong and that he'd rather
be dead tluitl submit to it. Things went
erlong this way till Tom he got worse
and worse, till at last one night when
the niggers had gathered out in their
yard and wen- playing and er singing
nnder s big oak on the gniss Tom he
jest set ont on er horse, block and whit

"And from across the branch cams
tho plaintive sound of negro volues from

his heart seemed to go out in sympathy
to tho singers, for as they progressed hs
slowly raised his head and leaned for

When the niggers got through with
their frolic Tom wus gone, and the next
morning w hen the other niggers went

it was ciiiii) known that Tom was a run
away. "Peter and Lucy woiildu't henr to pnt

not hoard from any more, and they had

Thus it wont for a year. The crops were
sorry nnd Peter failed to pay anything
on his thousand dollar note to old man
Smith, but had to renew and borrow a
little more. Peter was confident and
Lucy was cheerful, and so they pitched
another crop and resolved to economize
, ami work hard, lie. r thinking that luck
had turned ergin 'em.
"Erlong in June, though," continued
Plnnkett, "the niggors that Peter had
j bought got the smallpox ermoug them,
' all three of them died und the crop was

worked the harder und Lucy she was jist
the same good little womuu, und they
made er pretty good crop und got it

twelve hundred dollars und said be had to
have it or he'd take possession of the
farm. Tho money would be dun on the

wanted bis money or possession on that
day. The prosjHcts for a happy Christ

"That was erbout as much to do as
there was erliout it. until at lost Christ

the long iii;.'lit they sat until the hands

and then Peter raised his head and
" Lin y, we will have to give up oar

"Before Lucy could answers soft, cat
like tread was heard upon the porch and
the laU'b string wan pulled, and us the
door opened then- was revealed to the
sight of tiie ustouisliiHl pair:

that was tilli-d with goodies for the little

"With the retnrn of old Tom cants
pross'rity to Peter and Lucy, for when
old Smith found that Tom had returned
