The Pennsylvania, railroad has just
decided to give all christian ministers
half fare puses over all its lines, and the
Philadelphia office of the company is
crowded with clergjmen of all sorts, from
bishops to Salvation Army captains, and
from orthodox pastors to Latter Day
Ih Italy, where the clergy ru'e su
preme, the law is that no dance shall be
ccmmenccd after the great bell of the
cathedral has struck the hour cf mid
night. They are not required, however,
to stop in the middle of one already com
menced, but are permitted to dance it
out. Taking advantage of this law. just
before midnight they divide the orches
tra and fcjm a new dance. Some of the
orchestra rest until the others become
fatigued, when ttey relieve them.

Gen. McXulta is one of the represen
tative republicans of the state acd a gen
tleman of excellent judgment and dis
cernment. Speaking of Gen. Palmers
presidential prospects he says:
"Senator John M- Palmer's chances for
being the democratic nominee for presi
dent are 7 out of 10, if not 9 out of 10."
In my opinion Senator Palmer is far ahead
of any of the other candidates. The en
tire west is waking up to a realization of
Palmer's ability. The eastern men are
learning it, tco. Some cf them may pre
tend to turn up their noses at the 'old
man's' speech the other day, but the great
mass of the people are with him and the
truth and the facts are back of acd sup
porting his position.
"Palmer's nomination for the presi
dency would make this state the battle
field of the campaign. Illinois is already
the political center of gravity, and here
after her wishes, and not those of New
York, will De consulted in making
up tickets. With Palmer at the head
of the democratic national ticket
our republican boys wauld have to
work as they never worked before ti
save the stvte. They could not beat Pal
mer by abusing him. Two years ago
when Pa'mer came out for the senator
chip seme of the republicans attacked
him. I told them that 'if you keep on
abusing Palmer ycu'il elect him.' And
eo they did. When Palmer was a repub
lican we praised his army record to the
skies acd went before the country with
it. His record is the same now '.hat it
was then, and for us republicans to vil
lify it simply because he has become a
democrat is inconsistent.
"If Palmer is nominated and the re
publicans sheuld abuse him as they did
in the senatorial contest he will carry
Illinois and will be elected president.
Tou can't dowu' a man now by abusing
him. There is a great, powerful spirit
and feeling cf justice and fair play in the
hearts of the American people that wins
friends and sympathy for a man when be
is assailed UDj jstly, especially when the
attack is made by parties who would be
benefited by his downfall."
Speaking of state politics, Gen
McNulta Said: ' It is too early to pre
dict the action of the republican conven
tion. It will behoove the republicans to
name the strongest ticket they can select
from among our ablest men so as to be
prepared for the fight that will come in
the event of Palmer's nomination for the
presidency. The best candidate is not
necessarily the man who can get around
most and 'bnttonhole' the greatest num
ber of men. We must have a candidate
who can get votes on his merit and his
record. Judge A'geld will be the demo
cratic nominee in my opinion. I also
think unlets Palmer should be nominated
for the presidency that Atgeld will be
beaten easily by any one the republicans
may nt-me. Eut if Palmer leads the
democratic ticket we will have to be wise
or Illinois may swing into the democratic

Mrs. Beverley was in the habit of go
ing at least once a month, scinetinies
of toner, to tho family burying ground,
to see ihat everything was neat and
trim, and the place free from fallen;
fwigs a ad rubbish. It was a lovely,!
peaceful spot, on the crest of the hill
just bey3iid the orchard, which it over-!
looked, is well as the house aud yard'
and a magnificent stretch of view made,
up of h!ll and dale and wooded moun-,'
tains and broad shining reaches of slow-,
ly flowiii river. Around it, instead of :
the usual wooden paling, was a close
cedar helge, broken ouly at the spot
where th? gate gave access to what is sol
beautiful y termed "liod's acre." Iu'
Hie center were three tall cedars, stand
ing so a i to form a triangle, and under
the shadows of their spreading branches
rested the dut of many generations of
It was s soft, still, April evening. The
cloudless sky bent lovingly over the
earth, as the bride-groom bends over the
bride, and the earth smiled with the
joyous pn. mise of the season of love and
hope, bolt green things pushed up
through the brown mold, crocuses
opened gol Jen hearts to the kisses of the
breeze, violets unfolded white and pur
ple petals and sweetened the air with
their fragr mt breath, and lilies of the
valley and snowdrops were waiting coy
ly for the san to coax and woo them into
shaking out their snowy bells. On the
hickory, oak and poplar trees downy
little knots of leaves were bursting their
brown she'.ls and coming forth to view
the world. In the budding branches
birds twittered aud chirped of love and
housekeeping, and every instinct was
for gerniin: tion and growth and press
ilary passed through the orchard un
der the budding apple trees with a feel
ing of peace in her heart that was partly
the outcome of deep sympathy with na
ture and partly the atmosphere of her
own sweet soul. In her hand she car
ried a little basket of spring flowers to
lay in loving remembrance on the gray
slab of granite that covered the grave o!
the tall, fair haired soldier who. had
wooed and won her twelve long years
before, ami vliose blue eyes still gazed
into hers from under little Han's browu
Her mind was full of thoughts of him
and her mo k! was soft and tender as
she opened the gate gently and entered
the sacred s;xt. She did not glance
about, but p.issed straight along the lit
tle center walk to the granite slab which
was close to tho trunk of one of the
cedars. She shook out all her flowers
and formed with them a wreath around
the short inscription: "Hector Beverley
Obiit April. IS, a? tat. 30." It was
only when her task was done that she
became aware of the presence of a man
in the comer by the cedar hedge kneel
ing beside the grave of a little child.
His back wes toward her, and he had
a trowel in his hand and a large basket
on the ground beside him, from which
he took clumps of green and planted
them on the (.rave. The breath of vio
lets filled the air with perfume, and
Mary, atlracte 1 iu spite of herself, and
slightly curious, went softly over the
short green gn ss and stood close behind
him, looking down. She had known at
once that it vas Anthony, and seeing
him there beside the grave of her hus
band's little sister brought to her mind
the thought of the lonely boy, with his
hard, unlovely childhood, and she knew
with one of thote swift intuitions women
have, that that boy was kneeling there
at her feet
Anthony had cleared away the sod
from the center of the mound in the
shape of a cress, and was planting it
thick and close vith great tufts of hot
house violets, p-irple and white, whose
fragrance rosa purely acd seemed to
breathe of a lov j that was deathless.
After silently watching the strong
brown hands at their work for a mo
ment, ilary unfi-stened a bunch of white
and lilac crocuses from her bosom, and
stooping laid them on the foot of the
grave. Anthony glanced up at her with
a brief "Thank joul" and went on with
his work. He w;is not surprised or star
tled; his trained senses had made him
aware of her appi-oavh from the moment
her hand touched the latch of the gate,
and as she stood behind him he had
taken a sudden resolution. He would
tell her about h mself, his connection
with her husband s family, his love for
the child whose little form rested be
neath the cross of violets.
In that sacred place acd presence he
forgot to wonder how it would affect
her, or what chtnge if any it might
make in their relai ive positions. He for
got to think of himself at all.
Rising to his feet, he turned his face,
which waa not no ile in line or expres
sion, and yet was 1 onest and manly and
straightforward, full upon her, and
pointing to the grave at his feet, said
aiiuply: wo j jtua iiinonin timi
j ignorant, but she uever grudged to pnt
her little hands iu mine, nor felt soiled
t when 1 took her in my anus to help her
over rough and rocky places. She wiw
all the poetry and beauty and sweetness
! I ever knew or had. 1 loved her."
Wary impulsively put out her fair,
ungloved hands, and took between them
the browu. earth trained hand of the
man beside her, pressing it with quick
sympathy. "1 know." she suM geutly;
'1 know it all, and I understand.
"Mainmar shouted Hector, at the top
of his voice, dashing into the parlor in a
state ofgreat excitement, followed close
ly by little Ran. "please come over to
the quarters right straight. Uncle
Patrick is in the kitchen aud he says
that iir. Anthony is going to pull all
the cabius down aud seud all the colored
folks away. L'ucle Patrick says he
hasn't got any place to go. He's old aud

Anthony says they will."
"He don't want to go to the poorhouse.
mamma," chimed in Ran eagerly.
"Dou't let him go; it's dreffnl to see hiiu
try, aud he's so old. He says he cuu't
stand it to go: he would liever be dead!"
The boy's eyes tilled with tears, and his
little lips trembled as he pressed close to
bis mother's side, trampling on her dress
with his dusty little shoes in his excite
ment and distress.
"And. mamma. Mr. Anthony is going
to pull the houses all down." insisted
Hector. "He ought uot to do that. The
servants wou't have any place to go. and
father always let theia live there. Mr.
Anthony ought uot to pull the houses
By the exercise of considerable pn
lience and a good deal of ability in cross
juestioning. Mrs. Beverley finally ar
rived at a clear compivheusiou of itie
case The cabins, rive in number, all
that were left of the original row,
stood, as has been stated, just ia front of
the overseer's house, and not a stone's
throw from it. The site selected (at
Mary's suggestion, as she remembered
now) for the handsome new residence
which the owner of Lower Repton pro
posed to erect for himself was on the
crest of the hill, in a tine grove of trees,
and commanding a most magnificent
view. The cuMr.s would be in full sight
of all the front windows and were any
thing but an addition to the landscape,
lixiking. in truth. s their oner ex
pressed it, like "a lot of miners' shanties
'round an old shaft."
As tho work ckju the new house was
to commence immediately, the material
all cngagtnl and the architect actually
em ids way to Virginia, Mr. Anthony
had decided not to wait about moving
the cabins until after its completion, as
he had spoken of doing when he talked
the matter over with Mrs. Beverley, but
to take them away at once. According
ly, the work of demolition had been in
augurated that very morning, and the
cabins were being taken to pieces and
carted to other parts of the e-state for
re-erection. The negroes whom An
thony wished to retain iu his employ
had arrangements made for their ac
commodation during the period of their
homelessness. while those of whom he
wished to rid himself simply had notice
given them to quit by a certain day.
Among these last was poor old Pat
rick and his equally ol 1 and still more
infirm wife. They had never been house
servants nor very intimately associated
with the family life, but they had been
bora and raised on the Beverlev estate,
and had occupied that particular cabin
ever since their wedded life began,
nearly sixty years before, and had, not
unnaturally, counted on being allowed
to die in it. They had long outlived
their children, and their grandchildren
had all drifted away to seek a liveli
hood in other places, leaving the ancient
couple still a fixture on the old planta
tation, firm iu the conviction that the
white people would never see them come
to want. They were so old that, beyond
their own few household matters, no
work was expected of tin . and they
lived on from year to year, their few
wants supplied and th'-ir comfort looked
after by the white family, just as it
would have been had they never been
When the sale of the lower part of the
estate pnt the cabin iu which the old
people lived beyond her control, Mrs.
Beverley had been anxious to move her
pensioners over to a house ia her own
yard, where she could see that they were
properly attended to. But tby were
loath to leave the cabin to which they
Mary found the old negro sitting In the
had grown wedded in sixty years of oc
cupancy, and had procrastinated, always
willing but never ready, until they found
themselves, as the old man expressed it
with tears streaming down his cheeks,
literally "tu'nod out in de road to die."
Mary found the old negro sitting in
the kitchen door, in a state of tremulous
excitement and indignation, with a fringe
of sympathetic darkies around him. He
had no real apprehension of the poorhouse
suggestion's ever being carried into
effect, for he knew very well that "Misa
