MONTEREY, HIGHLAND COUNTY, VA., OCTOBER 27, 1893,
THE NEW BEAU.
BT OSIAI MIDSCMMER,
Bp.liy had ii brand-re^ beau
With perfume like the ro?es fair,
And ererywhere he chanced to go.
You'd think thc .-'ir was posies there.
He went with hfi to see her ra
Delighted as adventurer.
When struck a snag into his jaw
Upsetting his nomenclature.
Then Kally pulled his jaws apart,
And put a kiss betwe?n them, where
It tore a fragment from his heart
And dropped him on a sofa-chair.
There on its yielding cushioned feat.
He seemed resigned to heave the ghost,
When Sally said, "unshoe his feet,"
"Twill do bim good his thins to toast."
One shoe released, his walking gear,
Whui "whew." the richness of perfumes.
The rarest posies all were there;
The rosee nni the chrysanthemums.
The other shoo set free lia store,
When quit the father on the spot.
But Kally stuck aud hung and bore
Until the fee; were getting hot.
Then mother reached there, turned him out,
And droVe bim down tho alley,
Where lingered he some time about
And waited patiently Sully.
What makes the man love bally to?
The ea^er children shouted then.
M h ii mother tadd, "her love, you know,"
"ile't not much worse than other men."
In the Shadow of the
BY DAVID LOWRY.
THE FIRST (LEW.
The sailor sauntered slowly away from
the Globe Inn, like a mun who had ample
time at his disposal.
"So this i> Salem." he said to himself.
"It's move like Turkey, where a crooked
look bringa a bastinado, and a word cuts
your heal off. If this is what the new
world comes lo in a generation or two,
it's bf st we find no more. The old is
kinder to us."
He was walking diroctly toward the
old meeting house, when a pelt?a pretty
piece of fur hang n^' at a door attracted
him, whf n who should pass that way but
Arthur Pro tor. He was in a hurry, but
the moment he saw the sailor he stopped
?tod held out a hind cordially, which was
as warmly KT.taped.
"Goo 1-morning, Mr.-"
"Jonas" sad the Bailor; "I need not
fisk how the morning finds you, Mr. Proc?
"It's luckj I met you, for I have a word
for you in pi iva! e."
"That is the very thought in my mind,"
said Ai thur Proctor.
"Why, then, we need not be long in
coming to business," siid the sailor.
"Where can webe alone?"
"I live haul by ?a few steps more.
This is m.- lodg ng place. We caa be
u'one here for awhile."
As he spoke Arthur Proctor led the
6 Poi into the house and pissed up-stni.s
iuto an upper room wh re a bel, a clnir
nnd a trunk comprised the 6olo appoint?
ments. Proctor sat down on the trunk
a-.id po nted io a chair.
"This is go'ng to a prent deal of trouble
for nothing, maybe," said the sailor; "but
I'll make bold to speak to you, now we
"Whatever you say will go no farther,"
"If I did not feel sure of that I'd not
He pondered, looking at the floor, while
Proctor waited his pleasure. At last the
Mi or looked up.
"What was the story about the murder
of the innkeeper's son?"
"You mean D .niel Muade'B son?"
The sailor nodded.
"Why, that was altogether a bad bnsi
1 ess. Tl^e youug fellow was fearful of
his father. He had quarreled?it was but
a tritliog matter at the worst ?and not
kno win:; but the author; ties might inquire
into it, when he came borne he was afraid
to be seen sive by his parents for a
litre. Thou a traveler?a sailor, like
yourself lodged overn'ght in the inn,
?iud, sice ing in the same room with the
feen, w. s bent on robbing tho inn. There
are seme th uk there was a quarrel. The
innkeeper and his wife aver the min was
trying to 10b them, when the son awoke,
nnd in mjk ng hi; escape the robber shot
the <on and killed him. '
"Humph! That might be. too."
You seem to doubt it. H ?ve you any
veaBou to question the parents' state?
"Par from it. If the boy was shot and
the lo'ger ian away, aid all pointed as
jou say, why, that eud< it."
"That is the story commonly believed."
Ai thur Proctor looked at the sailor in?
quiringly. The sailor seemingly had dis?
missed the subject from his mind. He
turned abruptly to Proctor.
"Think you Martin Lee is hereabouts?"
"That I cnuot tell," said Proctor, ciu
liously. "Ii would be strange if he were
b re and I not hear of it."
'Von know the Lees well, then?"
Arthur Proctor's cheeks reddened. The
sailor, observing his rising co'or, added
"Pardon me. I meant much less than
rou have taken out of my question. I
}>ave no right to mead lc in others' affairs,
but teeing what I see, if fha wind blows
ns your looks lead mo to think. Pm
pleaded I chanced upon you. 1 would do
Martin Lee a gco.l turn before I go to
"I do not under Hud."
"That is what 1 must explain fully.
You see, it's like this: Marlin Lee don't
know I nm livia '. He thinks it beBt to
keep out of harm's way since we fought
last. 'Twas all rum at the bottom-all
rum. I'll tell you the whole story."
Tho sailor crossed his legs, drew a long
I reath. and moving his head very slowly
fi0.11 6ide to Bide continued:
"Martin Lee and nie sailed together in
the same ship, lt happened so by acci?
dent. Anyhow we were in the same fo'
castle. The last time it happened we
hadn't met for years, [fe was given up
for lost years. And he was, too, 1 ut he
found himself a; 1 may say. Well to
make my story short, last time we sailed
wns on the 6hip Elita. The ship Eliza
took him from a Portuguese ship, where
be was helped off a wreck somewhere.
So being old mates, we were mighty glad
lo see each other. He had some rare
things very rare things to show me. I
have a specimen in my purse. Mayhap
you might guess what it is."
The sailor produced Ins purse and drew
fioin the bottom of it a piece of tino
leather, which he unrolled carefully,
exposing to view a curious-looking stone,
one Bide of which sparkled as he passed
it to Proctor, who turned it over in his
p dm indifferently and leturuet? lt.
"I never saw such a tiing before."
? "Nor I. But I shouldn't wonder if it
would bring a hundred pound or mose*
"Is it ? diamond?" demanded Proctor
"That's what Martin gave it o roe foi
- and I never knew him to tell me a lie.
lie gave it to me as a keepsake to buy roy
se f a present with, he said. You see
when wo got ashore?safe and sound both
of us, andthe phipotthe bottom, and nicny
* brave fellow with her?we were mun
glad. That was nature. Well, we turned
io, and called for the btest that was go?
ing. That was nature, too. Think what
We had come through since we had part?
ed. Well, 'twas eelfisu like for mb to go
a one al it, so I h d a friend, and he
found a mate, and wo rmde a day of it
and a night, and another day atop of
that, and another night. And then wo
had as much company as 'Jack' ever has
till his pocket's empty. Whether it was
planned or anc dent Cr lue devil put it in
us, the frolic broke up in a fight. I t^e
an ugly customer with my best frends,
they s y, when I'm drunk. Martin Lee
and me fought, nnd somebo ly -'twas
never Martin - cut mo with a knife. 1 wai
done for then, and when I came to no?
body knew nught of Mftrtjh Le*. Now,
seeing how 'twas, 'twas clear to me be
would be caught and hinged if I died.
When, a8 I say and will maint.in, 'twas
al my fault, an' Maitin Lee is ia hiding
for a thing be need not be ashamed of.
1 have come to Bet his mini at reit. I'm
mail sorry it happened with my old
mate -the bo t friend I ever Baili* 1 with.
.So, if you ar? intimate with John Lee,
and cn help me got bis goo 1 will, we
toust tell Martin Lee there's no longer
use for his hiding."
"There is ten'timee?A thousand times
? moro reasons he should conceal himself
now than there were before. I hove a
plau," said Arthur Proctor. He produced
a purse and held it toward the sailor.
"Was not this in roy hind when Daniel
Meade was lukin with a fit?"
"I dare say such as liked could s"e it."
Arthur Proclor reflected. Tom Jones
regarded him with a speculative eye.
"There is more in this than appears on
the face of lt. The landlord was like
himself until he fell iu a fit,"
"That is for you to Bay?I roust Bay 1
thought him Out of sorts from th? mo?
ment I set eyes on him, I saw him look
over another's shoulder tit thia purse, and
then he gave a loud cry, as you heard."
"Aye- we all beard him."
The sailor looked wonderingly at the
young man, then frowned as he thought
of his experience in the night.
"Why should Daniel Meado be upset at
tho sight of a purse?" Arthur Pto tor
asked himself the question, although ho
uttered it. Ho was thinking less of the
sailor than of circumstances which were
slowly shaping themselves in a connected
manner in his mind.
"Eh? Damned if I can make header
tail of it!" said the sailor. "If Martin
Lee was roally in Globe Inn wbeu the
murder was done, why don't the landlord
and his wife set to and t nd him? If they
have any clues to work on, why don't
they make a cry about it?"
"That is what I am wondering at,"
"Tell you whit, mate, 'tis like they are
biding their time to spiingon him. What
"I was thinking," said Proctor, like one
awaking from a droaro, "how wo cnn best
get at the bottom of this business."
"Mayhap I cnn help you. I promised
I'd say nothing, but 1 am not sure I did
light in promising. Leastways, there's
no harm in telling you."
Heie the sailor related what befell him
through the night. As he described the
approach of the landlord of Globe Inn to
his bedside, nnd the thrust with the
knife, the sudden appearance of Grizzle,
and the returning consciousness of the
landlord, Aithur Proctor listened spell?
"This is a strange tale," he said, as the
sailor conc'uded. " Tis the hand of
Providence." Ho was unconsciously
forming in his mind a theory that was to
lead to startling results. "This is a deli?
cate?a very dangerous business for Mar?
tin Lee, for you and rae, nnd the landlord
and Grizzle Meade, his wife, if we make
nny mistake. This is plainly a hanging
"Tell me what I can do. You'll find
Arthur Proctor pondered long in
silence, sighed deeply, and said:
"I have a plan. But Erst of all, we
must take my uncle into our confidence."
"I see no wrong in that."
The day w s well advanced when the~e
three entered Globe Inn. Grizzle Meade
looked sharply at thtm as they seated
them-elves and called for wine, which
they drank slowly, like men who relished
it, 7 hey talked of the weather, of taxes,
the Indian wars, of everything but witch?
craft, until the laudlord entered. The
callers were few. One customer rode
away from the inn, and a wagon ap?
proached, peeing which the landlord
went out of doors. It did not escape the
eyes of the customers that the moment
Daniel Meade bit the doorway Grizzle
Meade re-entered, and stood looking out
after herhusbnud. Then Proctor's uncle,
Abner Bain, suddenly stooped and hold?
ing up a puree, the same that Proctor had
exposed the night before, said:
"Daniel Meade had best look to his
purse, or less honest people may find it,
At sight of the purse Grizzle Meide
turned deadly pale, but she answered
" Tis not my husband's, nor never was.
I never saw it before."
Abner Bain made no answer, but sipped
his wine. The wa;on, which had stopped,
rolled on, Grizzle withdrew, and Daniel
>Meade re-entered. As ho enteiod Abner
Bain spoke, holdiug out the purse:
"Hast ever seen a purse like this in the
hands of a customer?''
Grizzle Meade peered in at the door as
her husband looked ai. the purse.
"I found it lying on the floor."
The landlord reached out a hand quick?
ly, then ns quickly withdrew it.
" " 'Tis not mine?found it, say you? On
the floor? 'Tis the same ns your friend
carries. If it be not Pro tor's I know nol
whose it may be."
"And that bo so, I may keep it until the
owner calls for it."
Daniel Meade made no reply, and soon
afterward tho three took their departure.
"Did you see how palo she was?" said
the sailor, whose eyes were keen, when
they were on the road again.
"And I remarked how he held oula hand
?until he bethoughht himself," Baid Ab?
"This purse," said Proc'or, shaking it,
"will help to han? thee, Daniel Meade."
THE SHADOW OK THE GALLOWS.
When they were alone Grizzle Meade
looked at her hushnnd. Daniel Meade
returned ber look with one of wonder.
" Well, is there anything wrong?"
Grizzle still stared at him in silence.
Her anger was smoldering, and now her
wrath found full tongue.
"Do you want to han^ us both? AVhat
did you clo with the purse? Did I not
charge you to let nobody see it? But you
have had your #wn way?and it's taking
us to the gallows? We may both prepiro
?or the time that's coming, ai.d* the rope.
I feel it round raj neck e\^n now. This
*jl comes, Daniel Meade, of your folly
anfl wrong-lfeadednes8." ?
The landlord pf Globe Inn?mu6lered
np sufficient courage to demind an ?!?
"Tell mo what I have done, Grille,"
"Done!" Grizzle shrieked. "Did you
bot give entertainment just now to
Ihe men whb will hang ytfur Uid.n*t one
of them show me a purso and tell me you
dropped it?the very purse I warned yoij
to bury ?tb put where mbrtal nevor could

"Who? 'twas one who is loo ke?h fo*
iis. be sure. 'Twas Arthur Proctor's uncle,
Abuer Paine, a likely mar, nnd well-to
"And what said he, Grizz'e?''
The landlord of Globe Inn rubbed his
oands roget hs* nervously. Orizz'e looked
at him w th scorn in her face.
" 'Tis little matter whit he said. He
held the purse out to catch my eye, and
said 'twas yours."
"And what answer did you make?"
"I said 'twas never yo rs."
'."What niora?^hat more?"
B? giue I had roy wils abdul fte". 1
said 'twas not like ally purse you ever
had?I said I never looked on its like be?
The landlord of Globe Inn clutched
at a table noir him, and steadied him?
"If wo hang?Grizzle?'tia?you-your
-tongue- hangs uS?"
"How? What mean you?"
kI-I-" Daniel Meade gasped, and
wbuld have fallen, but Grizzle ran and
poured biri! ti glass of liquor, which he
gulped down Ut a draught.
"I see?I see it all Dbw! exclaimed
Grizzle, wringing her hands. "Oh, man
man! where were thy wits? Surely we
both shall hang for this folly!"
"Yes-wo are done for now, Grizzle.
We may as well confess nnd dbno
"Confess! Never!" Grizzle Meade
straightened herself. "They may hang
me-make mo confess, they never will!
'Tia not in their power!"
" 'TjB useless to deny it."
"Aye-craven spirit that thou art!
There is nothing gained by f8ir. Every?
thing ls to be hoped bj keeping up ri
3tbut h' aft. Though ytiu should confess
a thousand times, I'll deny it with my
last breath. You know me well. Mark
my words! Leave this to me, nnd here?
after hold thy peace, Since thou c.ns't
hot mend matters."
So saying, Grizzle Meade pointbd to an
inner door, and the landlord of the Glol>o
Inn passed through it, leaving her to
Btand between him and tho world ho
lilrfi BEFORE TtiE JunOER.
Of all the strange and striking scenes
witnessed in the Meeting House in Salem
in those perilous days, nobe excited more
interest than the examination of Janet
Lee. The crOwd that gathered inside an I
outside the Meeting Houbo expressed
amazement at the self-possession sho
displayed. Deputy Governor Thomas
Danforth, with a magislr to on either
side of him. presided. His preliminary
remarks were brief. They were to the
elect that the prisoner, and her friends,
as well as all present, were fully advised
of the nature of the offense with which
she wns charged. It was sufficient to say
she was charged with witchcraft.
When Governor Danforth concluded,
and the Sheriff told Janet Lee to st md
up, beads were tws'ed and elevated;
everybody stood on tip-toe to look nt her.
Janet returned their looks wi h a com?
posure that excited nervous comments.I
There wa*, however, but one sentiment
when her father and mother entered. All
sympathized with them.
When Governor Danforth ordered the
witresses lo be called, perfect silence
ensued. Marshal Hobbs called upon Ezra
Easty to come forward. Before Ezra had
time to comply, John Lee rose, and in a
loud, clear voice, asked:
"Who brings this charge against my
'"lhat will be made known in due sea?
son," one of the magistrates replied, "let
the wituess be sworn."
A murmur arosa as Ezra Eaaty stepped
forward. Beforj the Sheriff could ad.
minister the oath, Arthur Proctor a?kcd
"Is it customary to proceed without
bringing the accused and the accuser fact
"Who is that young man?" Gov. Dan?
forth looked from one to the other, but no
one answered, whereupon Arthur Pronto)
"A friend of the accused and a lover oi
justice. My name is Arthur Proctor."
"It were well for the accused you held
your ponce," said Danforth severely.
"These proceedings must be guided by
the necessities of the cases brought be?
fore us. Let the witness be sworn."
Ezra, when duly sworn, trembled. His
face flushed. The flush deepened when
he spoke in answer to the first quest on.
"Ezra Easty, what do you know con?
cerning this matter?" He looked at the
floor as he replied:
"I know I mt Janet Lee on Will's Hill
last night. It was not bo dark but I
could hear her, nnd feel her when she
struck me, and tore herself away from
"Did you speak to her?"
"I oal'ed out and taxed her with coming
there. Then I took hold of her nnd all
at once I wns tossed aside like a feather,
nnd was alone."
'Why did you go to Will's Hill?"
"As Ann Bigger can prove, I followed
her to make sure whether she carried the
bread and milk she took from her father's
house. Her mother Baid Ann and me
stole them. I followed her after prayers,
as Ann Bigger will bear me out, after we
saw her take the cakes."
"Janet Lee," said Governor Danforth,
"yoUjbave heard tho witness. You have
admitted the neckerchief ho took from
tho person he found on Will's Hill ia
yours. John Lee, have you anything to
nsk the witness?"
John Lee shook his head. "Whatever
I m iy have to say n as well unsaid for
tho present. What would it profit us?"
"I think it would be well to gi>e him
time to make answer," said (liles Ellis.
"That is impossible," answered one of
the magistrates "We cannot delay these
proceeding. If nobody makes answer,
we will take the testimony nnd pass on
it after due consideration.'
Ito be continued. 1
In tho trial of a case recently, in one
ol' tho English courts, a witness was
asked to repeat a conversation that she
had with her husband. Objection was
made that the question should not be
answered because the conversation waa
private in its nature. The Judge then
asked the witness whether anybody
except herself and husband were pres?
ent. She replied that her mother and
the husband's mother were. Where?
upon the Judge remarked : "It appears
that lioth mothers-in-law were present;
I shall therefore rule that the con?

third instalment of his dissertation on money
and the money metals, and his argument
against the repeal of the Sherman act. He

more to finish it.
62xd Day.?The only incident of note in
the House was a personal controversy be?
tween Messrs. Geary, of California, and
Warner, of New York, over the New York
and New Jersey Bridge bill. It was a ques?
tion of veracity, and loth gentlemen were
rather ex'dted, but tho Speaker was firm in
preserving order, and the geutlemeu became
calmer. The bill was passed. The remainder
of the day was consumed In the further dis?
cussion and consideration cf the Printing
63bdDav.?The House made the Bank?
ruptcy bill a continuing special order for
Mondny next, the measure to bo considered
lu cdmmitteo of the whole, where it will be
open to amendments on each paragraph. A
bill was passed granting eertnih public lands
lo the territory of Arizona, A bill requiring
Rovernment-nided railroads lo provide
stations at town sites, within tho territories,
where such town sites have been established
by the Int rior Department, was discussed,
not disposed of. The Priutiug bill was
further considered without final determina?
tion, Tbe remainder of the dny was con?
sumed in eulogistic nddresses to the Into
Wm. Muchler, of Pennsylvania, lu respect to
whose memory the House ndjourned.
64th Day.- Although the House transacted
more than the usual amount of business, its
proceedings were almost entirely devoid of
interest. The only incident out of the ordi?
nary was the charge by Representative
Simpson of Kansas, that Mr. Curtis, of Kan?
sas, was tho agent or attorney of railroads
running through the Cherokee Strip, which
the latter vigorously denied. That discus?
sion wa9 jenlivened also by a brief passage
between Representative McRao, of Arkansas
nnd Delegate. Flynn oi Oklahoma, respecting
the attitu :e of the Harrison and Cleveland
administration towards the opening of the
Strip to settlement.
65th Day.?The House was in session only
three hours, two-thirds of the time being de?
voted to the further consideration of the
Printing hill. It reached a vote, but no
quorum nppearlug, Jt went over uutil this
week, when it will he the unfinished business
at the first session. A bill was passed direct?
ing the construction of a revenue cutter for
use on tho New England coast, tho cost not
to exceed 1175,0.0.
WORLD'S FAIR POULTRY.
Five Thousand Powis on Exhibition
Plymouth Rock L?au.
Tho display of poultry at the World's Fair
numbers nbout 5. 00 fowls. The leading class
is Plymouth Rocks. Though this breed out?
numbers the recent exhibits at the state
falrs.they do not equal their excellence. The
light Brahmas are greatly above tho usual
standard specimens exhibited, with probably
6omeofthe largest cockerels ever before
shown so early in the seaton. Canada is out
lu strong force, having moro than half tho
number of fowls in the display. Among them
are a number of Polish, with the largest and
most perfect crests ?ver before seen. Another
remarkable class from Canada is the Ham?
burgs. Many of the golden and silver pen
biled havo the most perfect penciled breasts,
with proper barring clear to tho throats.
Wynndottes aro a 9trong class. Nearly all
known breeds aro represented. The bantams
are out in force, with many remarkably neat
and clean-cut specimens among tho games.
There is a large display of aquatic fowls,also
of turkeys. There are twenty-two poultry
judges and two pigeon judges, who com?
menced their "scoring" at 1 o'clock Wednes?
day. The judges complain very much of the
red-tape restrictions, which prevent their
making very rapid progress in placing tho
awards. Score-card explains tho relative
merits of each specimen, and at regaler poul?
try shows they decide without further parley
tho proper placing of the premiums. Hero
the judge is compelled, in addition to the
scorecard, to make out a written report,
stating why one bird ls bette;- that another.
Practical methods aro ignored and new de?
partures mndl'tlfht confuse instead of en?
lighten. . binstead'of completing Hie judging
tn at most t**-o days, asjjhould be fire case,
lt will take three timea'as'loug.
