Calhoun's stuf HO III I'oaltlou.
At 10 o'clock Tuesday morning ti bali
dozen workmen begun to turn tho wind
lass of tho huge derrick ou Marion
.sentare, and tho colossal bronze statue of
.Ioho C. Calhoun, which Avas to crown
UlC work ami realize tho dream of thirty
live yean, slowly rose from the ground.
The work was delayed until that hour iu
order to allow some of tho members of
the committee to bo present. Six stout
cables hud been passed around tho bot
tom of tho chair and made fast to tho
figure, whioh was Huts nicely balanced.
Tito lund was still well covered with
thick folds of canvass, tightly bound.
Guy repos leading in ditlcrcut direc
tions ?ero held each by a workman, thus
enabling them to regulate any circular
or lateral motion, and at the sumo time
to place the statue iu the position it was
to occupy on the pedestal.
lt did not take long to hoist it to tho
top of the pedestal, ami there it was
allowed to remain, lt was more sugges
tive than ever of the idea of an execu
tion, until tho mon at tho end of tho
gay ropes had been placed in the proper
positions. Then the boom of tho der
rick slowly moved around, swinging the
statue din elly over the pedestal where
it wus to rest. At ten minutes past ll
tho statue of fohn O. Calhoun rested on
its pedestal, thirty-li vt; years after thc
corner stoue ot* thc monument had been

panels to complote the monument. Mr.
Viett, tho contractor, who did the granite
work, ts to bo praised as well as con
gratulated for tho successful consumma
tion of his contract. lt is admitted to
be un admirable piece of work, and it is
somewhat strange that not a single stone
was spoiled in the cutting. The work
lias taken considerably moro time than
it was expected, but there were unavoid
able interruptions and moreover it hus
been splendidly done. When tho Cul

Age ( minot Compete w itl> Votilli,
An interesting incident comes from Scot!
county, Indiana. Mr. McDermott, a wid
ower, fell in love with a beautiful young
girl, and courted her with a zeal which
only true nlTcclion knows. Mr. McDer
mott has the misfortune tO have a son, but
thc son very considerately did not object lo
tho fair young lady whom his father was
trying to make his* step-mother. In fact,
tho young mau called on thc young lady
and made lier feel that she would lie wel
come ns a member of tho family. This all
pleased thc lather, of ( ourse, and in a buist
of parental affection he told his son that ho
and the young lady were engaged. Then
thc son went over to congrat?late thc young
lady. He did it affectionately-SO very af
fectionately that he proposed and was ac
cepted. All elopement followed, und tho
fond father has now lt daughter-in-law and
the son hus no step mother. Age should
never compete with youth in contests where
Cupid awards the prizes.
