Mr. Editor :
Last Saturday night was one of the
saddest ever experienced by the in
habitants of Kosciusko, for never
since the existence of tho town, has it
been so severely scurged by the fire
ficud. The fire was discovered about
3 o'clock Wednesday morning, issu
ing from Mr. N. Thompson's tin
shop. There being no fire company
iu town, tho only way to stop tho fire
in its furious course, was to go
ahead of it, and pulldown a building,
thereby making a gap, over which
the flames could not leap. This was
done without delay, und the roof of
tho next, house, Mr. I). B. Comfort's
drugstore, was kept wet.
The building destroyed, was tho
law office of Maj. AM hum, and was
destroyed by his direction. Tiled ?ss

At the close id' th.i school, t.b ? sch >i

a .'bort while, tin scholars came out,
and the larger boys, having dressed ,
and went away, they bad net
gone very far, when Philip said, "I
believe I'll* go in and swim some
more." He could not swim without
support, so taking a plank, he plung
ed in, and was soon swimming about
quite merrily, not dreaming of dang
er, but a sudden turn caused the
plank to slip from under him. The
little boys on the hank gave ttfe
alarm, but when help came, it was
too late. The body was recovered,
but all efforts to resuscitate it
Our citizens arc agitating the
question of building a branch road

Give my love to Jhll Arp,aud tell
him to write.
Eternity has no gray hairs. The
flowers fade, the heart withers, man
grows, old and dies, the world lies
down in the sepulchre of ages, but
time writes no wrinkles on eternity.
Eternity ! ?Stupendous thought ! The
ever-present, unborn, undecaying and
undying?the endless chain, compos
ing the lifo of God?the golden
thread, entwining the destinies of th o
universe. Earth has its beauties, but
time enshrouds then, for the grave;
its honors are but the sunshine ot an
hour; its palaces arc but gilded
sepulchres; its pleasures?they are but
as the bursting bubbles, Not so in
the untried bourne. En the dwelling
of the Almighty can come no foot
steps of decay. Its way will know no
darkening?eternal splendor forbids
t be approach of ujght.
The Bankrupt Law.
v. (ingress has pi i li ii repeal
ing the bankrupt iuw i. will go into
elleej, September 1, I-S7?, and all eases
then pending will he continued as if
the bankrupt act bad not been passed.
This we consider, one of the most im
portant measures acted on by Con
gress The bankrupt law was terri
bly abused, and while in many in
siances it gave great relief and was
proper enough, in many others
debtors only took advantage of it to
defraud their creditors. Wo arc glad
the law is repealed.
It happened in this wiso: They
were coming off the steamer across
tho plank together. Sho was afraid
the plank would tip and she should
fall. He said, 'Never fear. Iu that
case we shall die together.' Sho look
ed into his face and said,'If it's all
tho same to Providence, I should
much prefer to live together.' And
the next week tho knot was tied.
A pancful site?A hothouse.
"O, music?take her away 1"
Wot a Marrying Girl.
They were seated together, s'ulc hj
side, on the sofa, in the mos', approv
ed lover fashion?his arm encircled
her taper waist, etc.
'Lizzie,' ho said 'yon must have
read my heart ere this; you must
know how dearly 1 love you.'
'Yes, Fred; you have certainly
been very attentive,1 said Lizzie.
'But, Li/.y.ic, my dearest darling,
do you love mo? Will you be my

'So pCi.pl ? say; bul I wouldn't like
to stan.I in either May's or Nell's
shoes; that's all.'
'Lizzie, darling you astonish nie.'
'Look here, Fred; I've ha 1 over
twiMitv-tivo rides I[b is wi n tor. t h l II Ic s
to you and my other gentleman
Fred winced a little here, whether
at the remembrance of that unpaid
livery bill, or the idea of Lizzie's rid
ing with her gentleman friends, I
cannot positively answer.
'How many do you think my sisters
have had? Not the sign of a one,
either of them. Such pretty girls as
May and Nellie were too, and so much
attention they use to have?'
'1 am fond of going to the theater
occasionally as well as a lecture or
concert sometimes, and I shouldn't
liko it if I proposed attending any
such entertainment to bo invariably
told that times were hard and my
husband couldn't, afford it, and then
**?>ha"s him icva.k off alone.'
'And then if once in a dog's age, be
did condescend to go with me any
where in the evening, I shouldn't liko
to be left to pick my way along the
slippery places* at the risk of break
ing my neck, he walking aloug un
consciously by my side. I'm of a
dependent, clinging nature, and I
need the protection o?'a strong arm.'
'Lizzie, this is all nonsense.'
'I'm tue youngest in the family,
and perhaps I've been spoiled. At
all events, I know it would break my
heart to have my husband vent all ill
temper which he conceals from the
world on my defenseless head.'
'But, Lizzie, I promise yen that
?Oh, yes, Fred; I know what you
are going to say?that you will be
different; but Mary and Nell have
told nie lime and again that no bet
ter husbands than theirs ever lived;
no, Fred, as a lover, you are just per
fect, and J shall bate awfully to give
you up. Still if you arc bent on
marrying, there are plenty of girls
wjir have not married sisters, or who
are not wise enough to profit by their
ex a in pro, if they have. And don't
think about me, for I've no doubt I
can find someone to fill your place?'
But before Lizzie had concluded,
Fred made for the door, muttering
something 'unmentionable to ears
?There !' exclaimed Lizzie, as the
door closed with a bang. 'I knew he
was no botler than the rest. That's
the way John and Aleck swear and
slam doors, when things don't go just
right. He'd make a perfect bear of
a husband, but I'm sorry ho came to
tho point so soon, for he was just a
A Noble Revenge.
The coffin was a plain one, a poor
miserable piiio coffin. No flowers on
the top; no lining of satin for the pale
brow, no smooth ribbons around her
course shroud. The brown hair was
laid decently back, but there was no
crimped cap with its neat 'io beneath
tho chin. The sutferor from cruel
poverty smiled in her sleep. Sho had
found bread, rest and heulth.
'I want to see my mother,'sobbed a
poor child, as tho undertaker screwed
on the top.
'You can't; get out of the way.
Why don't somebody take that brat'?'
'Only let me see hor one minute,'
cried the helpless orphan, clutching
the side of the box, as he ga/.ed iuto
the rough face, agonized tears .stream
ing down the cheek ou which a child
ish bloom ever lingered.
Oh ! it was painful to hear him
'Ob, let me set; my mother?only
Quickly and brutally the hard
hearted monster struck the boy away
so that be- reeled with the blow, for
a moment the boy slop panting with
grief ai.d anger, the blue eyes dis
tended, his lips sprung apart, a lire
glistening through bis tears, as he
raised his puny arm, and with the
most unchilJish voice,cried:
'When I am a man I will pay you
for this !?
There was a coffin and a heap of
earth between him and this poor, for
saken child. A monument much
stronger than granite was bail I in
that boy's heart to the mom >ry of this
* * * *
The courthouse was crowded to
'Docsany one appear as this man .-,
counsel ?' asked the judge.
There was silence when he had
finished until, with lips tightly press
ed together?a look of strange intelli
gence blended with haughty reserve
upon bis handsome features, a young
man stepped forward with a firm
tread and kindly eyes to plead for the
erring and friendless.
He was a stranger, but his first sen
tence there was silence. The splen
dor of his genius eutrauced?convin
'i he man who coald not find a
friend was acquitted.
'May Goil bless you, sir?lean
'1 want no thanks,'said thestrang
'I?1 believe you arc unknown to
'Man, I will refresh your memory.
Twenty years ago you struck a
broken hearted hoy away from his
mother's coffin. I was that boy.'
The man turned livid.
'Have you rescued me, then, to
take my life V
'No, I have a c\veetcr revenge. I
have saved the life of a man whose
brutal deed has rankled in my breast
for twenty years. Go ! aud remem

Tho man bowed his head in shamo;
and went from 'tho presiueo of a
magnanimity as grand to him as it
George and Harry worked in the
same shop; but as the working sea
son was almost over, and there would
be little work to do during the sum
mcr months, their employer informed
them as they settled up on Saturday
evening, that ho cou'd only give one
of them work thereafter. He was
sorry, he said; but it was the best be
could do. Ho told them both to come
back on Monday morning, and that
he w ould decide on the one he wished
to remain. So the young men re
turned to their boarding house a good
deal cast down; for work was scarce,
and neither oue knew where he eon Id
obtain a situation if he was the one to
That evening, as they counted over
their weeks wages, said Harry to his
'Mr. Wiison has paid mo a quarter
of a dollar too much.'
'So ho has me,' said George, as ho
looked at his.
'How could he have made the mis
take?' said Harry.
'Oh, ho was very busy when six
o'clock came; and handling so much
money, ho was careless when he came
to pay our trifle,' said George, as he
stuffed his into his pocket hook.
'Well,' said Harry, 'I am going to
atop as I goto the post office and hand
it to him.'
'You are wonderful particular about
a quarter,' .said George. 'What d ?es
he care about that trifle ? Why, he
would not come to the door for it, if
he knew what you wanted; and I am
sure you worked bard onough to earn
But Harry called und handed his
cnij ioycr the money, who thanked him
for returning it, and went into the
house, air. Wilson ha 1 p.iid e ic'i of
them a quarter more than their wages
on purpose to t"-t their honesty.
So, when Monday came, he seemed
to have no dilH eulty in determining
which one he would k ?op. IIa chose
Marry, and entrusted tho shop to his
care for several mouths, ivhen he was
away on business, and was .so well
pleased with his uiu lagcmcut, that,
when work commenced in the fall, ho
gave him the position of superintend
ent. Five years afterwards, Harry
wa-; Mr. Wil-< n's partner; and Georgo
worked in the same sli >p again, but
as a common laborer.
There, is nothing like a good c! ar
aeter when you want employ incut.
.Some young men can alway get WOrlcj
no matter bow dull the limes are;
while others can find nothing to do
when hands are scarce, simply became
they cannot be trusted.
The Experience of it Lucky Wan.
Mr. Geo. R. Gum to, the lucky man
of Princess Anne County, Va., who
drew the 830,000 prize in the Louisi
ana State Lottery, was heavily in
debt, with a mortgage on his farm,
and things going behindhand with
him generally. He got hold of a copy
of the advertisement of the L ittery.
He determine I to make a venture.
He had but 85.15 in tlie world. Ho
wrote to A. M, Daupjiin, P. O. Box
002, New Orleans, and one) >sed 82 in
the letter, and was but alvini^iu^gnAMB
it off to the Post Odl.-e l?7a hoyK
when a negro hand of his called on
him and demanded his wages, which
just amounted to 8~>. IIo offered tho
man the 8<> he had left, but this was
declined by the darkey, who threat
ened to leave, his work just at a criti
cal time unless be got the whole. Ho
took the le tter, and the two dollars
out of it, which, with the 83, ho hand
ed the man.
Thus was ho with hut fifteen cents
cash in tho world; und while in this
melancholy frame of mind, about an
hour afterward, a negro man drove
up and bought a load of foddsr,

A Powerful Voice.
Just before the thunder storm on
Sat unlay evening last, a Whitehall
man stepped into the telegraph office
at this place, and requested tli3 privi
lege of talking through the telephone
with his wife, who was visiting
friends at Troy. Mr. John W. Eddy,
tho gentlemanly assistant manager,
granted tho request, and the White
bailer began operations. IIo couldn't
be prevailed upon to believe that it
was really wife who was talking
to him, and she so many miles away.
He finally asked her to say or do
something known to themselves only,
that do might be convinced that ft
was her. Just then a rambling streak
of lightning came in on the wires*
keeling the husband over on his head,
when he jumped to his feet and
"That's tlie ole woman, sartin'?
only she's grodo a le-eotle more
powerful since she loft hum."
Bashful lover: 'Ah miss, I?I
wanted to see your father. I've some
importaut matters to proposoto him.'
Benevolent young lady: 'Well,
I'm sorry father is not in?hut can't
you make the proposal to mo?' The
wedding cards soon followed.
