American people never did a titter thing
than when they refrained from violence
in 1 S70 and settled a disputed national
eUction by the forms of law, even
though without the substance of jus
tice. It is not a long time since the acv
York Tribune, referring to those events,
glossed over the preposterous conduct
of the republican returning boards and
the highly suspicions course of the re
publican "vi.-iiing statesmen," and d'
scribed Mr. Tilden as a man who had
unsuccessfully tried to buy the presi
dency. Happily there are republican?:

Tilden pursued a very patriotic and

he gained what was of far greater va'.Ui
a title to the esteem and gratitude of

A LOVE STORY OF MEXiCO.
O! i-in.-i! .
In Mexico it is the custom for the
n tin wiio is about t be married to pay
p.ll the expenses of the wedding, l'e
must furnish all the household effects
required, the wedding feast and ail
the vine that the guests can drink. Ia
addition to this, be must provide the
bride with :i trousseau.
l'rankline Osniore, a civil engineer,
went to Mexico to assist in the survey
tnd construction of a railroad. Whllj
thus engaged be met Marina Olmedo, a
irl who had been well born, but whose
lather had died and left bis lamhy
with little or nothing. Marina was :it
this time urrived at a marriageable
age, and it behooved her to select a
husband who would take care of her.
She did not think of love or, if she did.
considered it in her case out of the
iptcstioii. But there were no men of;
means iu the place where she lived. I
Mid she could not yo elsewhere, iu i
i,uest of a husband. At home there I
were several young mm of Indifferent :
ability to make a living, any one ui ',
whom would be glad to marry her. So !
she settled upon I'iego Escobar as the i
most promising of the lot am! cng;, ed '
herself to him. :
Now, Marina, It will be seen from
this preface, was a practical young
woman, and it was her purpose to help
the man she married to obtain this
world's goods. Osmoiv fell in lov '
with her and asked her to marry him, :
but the fact that he was not of her)
in" or religion, that as soon as he had
finished his work in Mexico she would :
probably nave to go with turn to some '
benighted land, most probably the un
congenial I'liited States, caused her to i
I'.ecide against him. But Osniore v- j
in receipt of a good salary, ami shi?
would have liked to share it. Mie re- i
gretted that she could not marry both i
men, remaining in Mexico with the
one and being -provided for by the oth-I
er. Either would have suited her IT .
he had had the qualifications of both. .
Marina, being, as has been said, of an '
acquiring nature, concluded to get as i
much as possible out of Osniore in the I
way of household effects and trousseau, I
then send him off and marry Escobar, j
Osniore. who was madly m love, (e.i
into the trap. He was a self made man.
ind Marina, though of a different na
tionality, was a lady and at the only
nge when nnjst MeMtcaii women are
beautiful. He sent her to the City of
Mexico with simple means to spend ia
anv wav she liked. She did not need
much for household effects, for she
owned the rtinuture that h"r tanniv
had possessed in their halcyon days.
She spent most of what her lover had
given her on a trousseau.
After her return, instead of fixing a
dav for the wedding, as O ;more beggej
her to do. she began to cool toward
him and within atieth.r month broke
orr iicr engagement w,i: nun. .now
came for her the cri l moment.
Would Osniore try to T:;e I t -!c the'
trousseau, and, if so, how could she
keep ii? She offered to return it to
him. lie would not a cept it.
Later he was informed that the g:r!
had not intended to marry hi:i: an-.l
was intending to marry Piego Escobar.
Osniore would not liolievc it till the an
nouncement f Marina's engagement
to Escobar. Loverlike, he threw till the
blame on the man atal resolved to tak
revenge upon him. He sent Escobar
an Invitation to witik o'l the line of
the railroad at 0 o lock in the morn
ing, armed with a rille. and he, Osmere,
would meet him, armed with a similar
weapon. A reply was sent stating that
the challenge was accepted.
At the appointed hour Hie engineer
took his rille and proceeded on his
way. The stretch over which the com
batants were to walk was straight for
a mile. Presently Osniore saw a small
figure Escobar, like most Spaniards,
was diminutive coining, hearing
rille. The American's ride would have
carried a ball for the distance, but
he did not lire. The figure kept ad
vancing and Osniore finally stopped
and raised his weapon. Alter a time
the Mexican did the same, but took
so much time about it that Osniore
could easily have shot him. At that
moment the manner in which be had
been tricked came ep to influence Os
niore, and. takii g aim. he pulled the
trigger. The figure fell.
Regret at once took the place of pas
sion, and Or-more ran toward his ene
my, who was stanching blood oozing
from a wound in the shoulder. As Os
niore joined him he turned his face
and revealed the features not of Esco
bar, but of Marifti Olmedo.
In a moment Osniore had the girl In
his arms. Imploring her forgiveness.
Hastily examining her wound, be saw
that it was not in a vital part.
"Why did you come instead of Esco
bar?" "Escobar had nothing to do with your
wrong. It was I."
"P.ut.wby did you come at all?"
"Because I would have lioen asham
ed to keep you from your revenge."
"But you were not ashamed to ac
cept from me a lover's gift when you
intended to marry Escobar."
"I did wrong. It shall all be yours."
Osniore was astonished. The girl had
deliberately tricked him, then to make
an honorable amend permitted him to
shoot her. lie drew her nearer and
kissed her. A faint tinge of red was
left on the spot his lips had touched,
the first evidence of love he had ever
seen there, though he had kissed her
Osmore committed what would seem
to lie the height of folly by marrying
Marina. He got a wife who loved hi;n
devotedly, and her talent for getting on
develojitHl In better channels. Osniore
