"WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 1895.
THE MAJOR REFUSED kBE CROFOOT TELLS THE COLONEL HOW HE WAS THROWN DOWN. In Which lie Shows That It Is the Height of Injustice to Compare Ilim With Sev erui A Now Scheme That Fromisea Bit Heenlts. Colonel Dawson bad come to town for his mail, but being ahead of time bo bad laken a seat on tho veranda of the vil lage tavern. Tho day being hot and the tolonei being alono be bad fallen asleep hi hia chair, when bo was aronsed by a toice saying : "Howdy, Kurnel Daweon howdy. I la declar, but I'm right glad . to seo roM" "That yo', Abe?" replied tho colonel as ho opened his eyes and started up. - "Yes, knrnel, it's me. I was just passin along and happened to seo yo'. Come mighty nigh sendin a man ont to jro'r place yesterday with a note askin yo' to come to town." "Shoo!" gasped tho 'colonel as ho dropped his feet off the railing. "Is it mo' trouble, Abe? Pike county ecandal l2ors bin at it agin?" "They hev, knrnel. They hev! Couldn't possibly let Abe Crofoot alone fur over two weeks, yo' know. Jess sorter worked up a grand climax on me yesterday and looked to seo me throw op my bands and go outer tho game. How's mewls, kurnel?" . "Jess fairish, Abe jess holdin their own." "And co'n?" "A leetle better than fairish, I reckon. What hev the scandalizers bin up to this time, Abe?" "Kurnel Dawson," began Abe as ho got his right foot over his left knee and began to sharpen his pocketknife on his shoe, "I reckon yo' hev read about Se verus Alexander Severus? Yo' run mostly to co'n and mewls, but yo' do a leetle readin on the outside." ".Only jest a lectio, Abe, as my eyes ain't what they used to be. Don't re member about Severn s. Did he ever run a plantation in these parts?" "No, kurnel. Alexander Severus was emperor of Eomo botweentho ya'rs 223 cud 235. He was powerfully educated and a good fighter. Went right at it and licked the Persians cuter their butes ngin tho bigg?st kind of odds. He was runnin the empire bang up when a fel ler named Maximin murdered him and raised a rebellion. " "Shoo!" "And now, Kurnel Dawson, take no tice of a few p'ints in the case. Yo' know whero Rome 'is, of co'se?" "Not j?st this minit, Abe, as I'vo bin mighty busy all slimmer, yo' know." "Yes, I know. Waal, Rome is in Italy across tho ocean. That's pint No. 1. It's 1S95 now, ain't it?" "Sho is, Abe. Yes, sah, I'll swear to that." "And I told yo' that Severus died in tho y'ar 235. That's a matter of 1,630 y'ars ago. That's pint No. 2. Yesterday mawnin I wanted to use $2 mighty bad, and I drapped into Majah Day's office and asked him for a loan. Kurnel Daw son, what d'yo reckon the majah said to rnor Yo' are a-sittin right thar, and I'm sittiu right yere, and what d'yo reckon he said?" "Reckon it wasn't his day for lendin $2," replied the colonel as he hitched about in his chair. "Exactly, kurnel exactly, but that Wasn't all. He not only cut me short on the $ 2, but he 'said if I'd taken advan tage of my opportunities I might have bin a second Severus. That's pint No. 3. Do yo toiler me, kurnel?" : "I think I do, Abe I think so. " "Thar's one more pint, kurnel. Half an hour after I left Majah Day's ofGce I met him in Nick Carter's saloon and ho didn't know me. I stood right at bis el bow whilo ho called for a julep, and he never looked at me. Jess drank by his Belf and left mestandin thar', and Nick eaid it was the worst throw down he'd ever seen in Piko county. I was mighty nigh sendin him a challenge, and sendin fur yo' to sco me through. That's ray case, kurnel, and what d'yo think of it?" "Seems like tho majah was agin yo', Abe," replied the colonel. "Of co'so he was agin me!" exclaim ed Abo as ho roso up in bis excitement." "Tho majah was agin me, and what's the reason? Bekase I can't do tho im possible. Kurnel Dawson, was I bo'n into this world 1,060 y'ars ago?" "Of co'so not !" "Was Ibo'n in Italy when I was bon?" "Reckon not." "Could a man who wasn't bo'n till over 1,6G0 y'ars after the Emperor Sev. erus hev any show to equal him?" "Skassly, Abe skassly." "If I'd had my show with Severus, and failed, I wouldn't say a word, but I didn't hev my show. If I'd a-bin thar in his time, it would hev bin neck and nock between us, but he had over 1,600 y'ars the start of me. Am I to blame that I wasn't on airth in the y'ar 222?" "Not a bit of it, Abe." "Am I to blame fur bein bo'n in Pike county, instead of Italy?" "No, sah no, sahl Can't nobody blame yo' fur that. " "If Severus had all the shew, and I had none, kin I be expected to come out on top? Knrnel Dawson, look me in the eye! Now, then, from what yo' know of 'me, wouldn't yo say that if I'd lived when that ole kuss of a Severus did I'd hev knocked the spots off'n him as an emperor?" "I'm jessbelievin yo' would, Abe. If afeller ain't bo'n, then he can't donuth in. Looks to me as if Pike county was agin yo'. " " She's agin mo, of co'se. She's tbrowed me down time and time agin, but hev I staid down? Hev I groveled in ; the dirt, or hev I risen, like the phenix, from the ashes? It was a pow erful hard blow Majah Day struck me yesterday, specially when he didn't see me in the saloon, but am I on the grass or my feet? Am I ready to walk ont of Piko county, and gin up the fight, or ara I gwine to stay right yere and see this thing out?" "Got something now, Abe?" asked the colonel, with great interest. "That's what's the matter, Kurnel Dawson. Instead of bein used np by the majah 's treatment I jess took a fresh hold. Yes, sah, I'vo struck a new idea, and within a month you'll seo' Pike county tumblin over herself to shako hands with Abe Crofoot." "Shoo! Don't bo afeared to trust me, Abe." "I'll tell yo' squar out, knrnel, be kase I know yo' won't steal the idea be to' I kin take out my patent, , How fcaany bungholes in a bar'l?" "Occasionally two, but mostly only one. " , "That's k'rect. Thar' ar' in daily use ia this kentry for whisky, vinegar, cider, 'lasses, and so on, jess exactly 291,346, 221 bar'ls. Of this number only about 2,000 hev two bungholes. Of the rest yo've got to roll 'em at least halfway over to git at the bung. See the pint, kurnel?" " ' ," "Can't say as I do, Abe, though I know its thar.'.' - "Of co'se it is. If every bar'l had two bungholes would thar bo any rollin of it? Wouldn't one bunghole bo on top all the time?" , - ' I:. "For shore." "And wouldn't we savo tho time and expense of rollin 291,846,221 bar'ls about to find tho bungholes? I've fig gered it right down clus, and I'm tell ing yo' that this nation would save ex actly 01,871,127.14 ever y'ar by bavin two bungholes to a bar'l. That sum would take good keer of 10,000 wid ders. It would buy farms fur thousands of poor men. It would pay the states. It would But yo kin figger on it yo'r solf, kurnel. What d'yo think of the idea?" "Abe, it's the biggest" thing yet," whispered tho colonel as he reached cut his hand. "Yaas, sah, you'vo hit it for shore hit that bar'l on' both sides to once. " 5 ... "Thankee, lrurnelT I knowedl had a good thing, but wanted to h'ar yo' say bo jess tho same. Gwino to tho postof fice?" "Yes, reckon it's time." "So'm I.

Tho little boy was crying, and his tears touched the heart of the charitably inclined lady. He was so small and seemed to be in such distress, . "Don't cry, little boy," she said soothingly. "Dry your eyes and tell mo what tho trouble is. Did some of the big boys hurt you?" "No'm," replied tho waif, still sob bing. "Are you sick or hungry?" she per sisted. , "No'm." "Did your father beat you for" some thing?" "No'm, but bo will." "Oh, that's the trouble, is it?' "Yes'm." "Well, it's a shame," sho exclaimed angrily. "Why will he beat you?" " 'Cause I lost 10 cents." "Did he send you to buy something with it?" "Yes'm." "And yon lest it on the way?" "Yes'm." "Oh, well, I guess we can fix that," sho said in her kindly way as she took a dime from her purse and banded it to tho boy. "Now he won't beat you, will he?" "No'm." "What did he send yon to.buy with it?" ' , "Beer." . - "Beer!" Tho good lady gasped at the thought. "Yes'm." "And how did you loso it?"t; V "JMatchin pennies.". , Before she had sufficiently recovered to demand tho return of the diruo the boy was gone. Chicago Post. " Fired. Employer What's your name?

Surely wo might think that Gorome's ambition was satisfied, and that he when the spirit 'moved him and spend ing his declining years in the happy con templation of a successful career. He was now 50 years of age, rich in world ly possessions, tho owner of a handsome house in the fashionablo part of Paris and of a lovely summer homo and a chateau on tho river Seine, at a charm ing little town called Bougival. Every thing that goes to mako liSe "Agreeable Was his, and yet it was not Geromo's way to Sit idly cTo-vna and say, The night hath coiae ; it i3 no longer day, for ho felt with tho poet The? nisrht hath not yet come; we are not quite Cut off from labor by the falling light.

Tho great energy of the master could tot be bottled up, and, like Alexander cf old, he sighed for a new world to conquer, so he went to work quietly in his studio to study in clay forms and masses that he had heretofore represent ed in color. In short, ho dropped his pal ette and brushes, and gave all his atten tion to sculpture. How well he succeed ed is a matter of history, for, at the uni versal exposition of 187S, he received a medal for sculpture and tho grand medal of honor. "A Famous French Paint er," by Arthur Hoeber, in St. Nicholas. Inspiration and Effect. Tho manner in which David R. Locke (Petroleum V. Nasby) produced his fa mous "Letters From the Confederit X Reads," which during wartime and for some time thereafter attracted atten tion, is thus described by Tho Newspa per Maker: Tho "Letters" began to ap pear when Locko was struggling with poverty as an obscure country editor, first at Bellefontaine, O. , and later at Findlay, in that state. ,He never re duced the "Letters" towriting; ho sim ply took tho composing stick, went to his caso and put them in type, im promptu, as it were. As an aid, how ever, ho first procured an overflowing glass of gin, which he placed on a print ers' stool at his right. He would take a swig cf the stuff and then begin busi ness. After setting a stickful of type he would interview the glare again, and so on. Tho gin and the "Lefter" were fin ished at tho same time, arid Locko was about "finished," too, as far as his use fulness for the rest of the day was con cerned. "Lccke," said a friend to him on one occasion, "your 'Letters' show downright genius." "Ginius, you mean," was the laconic reply. Training Bees as Letter Carriers. An apiculturisthas commenced train ing bees for letter carrying purposes. After a few preliminary trials, he says, he took a hive of them to the houso of a friend four miles distant. After some days, when the bees had become famil iar with their new surroundings, some of them were liberated in a rooJwhero they soon settled cn a plate of honey which had been especially prepared for them. While they were busy eating it their trainer placed on thoir .backs tho tiniest of dispatches, fastened with the thinnest of thread, an'i so arranged them as to leave the head and wings absolute ly free. They were then thrown into tho air, and scon arrived at their own home with the letters on their backs. Tho writing was magnified and quite legible. Here, then, is an opening for a new industry. In time cf war bees would have the advantage ever pigeons of in-, visibility, and might go through the enemy's lines with impunity. West minster Gazetto. The Rooster's Crow. The crow of these birds, which may seem to the unobservant a very unvaried sound, discloses to thoso who havo lov incrlv studied them at least half a dozen n w - distinct modifications. In the fledgling 1 malo who just begins to feel the spirit of his kind, and who goes through his performance in the adolescent way, it is a cheap and often pitiful call. From the open roost in the trees, where the birds are gradually aroused by the slow com ing day, we can often hear tho note of tho half awakened cock, as full of tho sense of slumber as tho speech of a sleep ing man. As tho creature gradually awakens bis cry becomes more resonant, until it has the true morning ring. Bravo a3 is this note of the full day, it is not to be compared with the crowing of a gamecock, the most splendid brag gart sound of all tho animal world.

A ROYAL WIDOW. cthls About the Fast and Present ot the Duchess of Albany The Duchess of Albany has recently como before tho world as an inventor. She has received a gold medal from tho Sanitary institute exhibition at London for tbo peculiar shaped, school ecaand desk which eho designed some, years since, and which is now in use in most of the royal and imperial nurseries in England and on the continent. The in vention has special reference to the ef fect of posture on the health of school children, and is very suitable and prac ticable, all parts being adjustable to tho work of physical development cf achild. It is said that the widowed Duchess of Albany is one of the most popular, unassuming and kind hearted members of tha royal family She is not beanti- ilk. lost: TI1E DUCHESS AND HER SOX. ful, but her face is attractive and her manner charming. It is generally un derstood that she has remained unmar ried sinco the death of her husband merely in deference to the wishes of her mother-in-law, Queen Victoria. Her married life was certainly not ideal, for, although affectionate relations ex isted between her husband and herself, yet, owing to his delicacy of health, she was never freo from the most terriblo anxiety and care. Ho was subject to epileptic fits, and, moreover, he was de ficient in the normal quota of epidermis. The duke was so delicate that he was rarely permitted to drive, or even to un dergo the exertion of walking up stairs, and the elevator at Buckingham palace was built for him. He was very self willed, and he insisted upon marrying the duchess, notwithstanding that every member of his family was opposed to the match on the ground of his precari ous health. The duke died suddenly at Cannes from a hemorrhage, brought on by overexertion. Since his death tho duchess, who is a sister-in-law of the queen regent -of the Netherlands, has been living at Claremont, devoting her self to the education of her little boy and girl. She is to a great extent depend ent upon the queen, as the annuity of $30,000 a year, which she receives from parliament as a widow of the sovereign's youngest son, is inadequate to cover tho expenditure which residence at the pal ace of Claremont and the maintenance cf a royal household involve. All Tones In Pink. Pink in every tint and tone, says a fashion article, will be in high vogue this winter for evening toilets, dressy fjpora bonnets, for trimmings and lin ings, for brightening up black velvet "picture" hats and for lining theater capes and ball cloaks. A new, delicate shade of raspberry is called salammbo. When combined with several tints of green in Marie Antoinette brocade, it is very effective. There are as many tempt ing shades of blue as of green and brown among the season's dyes bengal, cadet, swallow and peacock blue. This last is dark that it is much like ocean blue, tho revived a shade so the superb Neapolitan and Roman blues that are seldom teen outside of rare oriental paintings. The Russian, Napoleon and marine blues appear among handsome tailor cloths for winter coats and cos tumes. Mrs. Helen Badder. In tho city of Dallas there lives a wo man who is the mother of nine children, who believes in the bicycle, who shot at and hit ' a prowling thief, who, when she lived in Michigan, was a deputy re corder of deeds, was admitted to the bar, then went to Ann Arbor and e;rncd a diploma as an M. D. Mrs. Heleno Badder, the Texas, woman of this story, in an interview says : "Between tho professions law and medicine for wom en, I prefer medicine, because I think it is not such a great departure from wom an's ordhfiry sphere and it draws out her finer natural sympathies and feel ings. In the selection of an occupation I think a woman, liko a man, should bo left to follow her own inclination and talents. She should 13 guided solely by adaptability and reason." The Fireplace. Unless your fireplace is already, fur nished with firedoga, fender and all the belongings of well regulated fireplaces, seek to find what you want in stores where they sell such fireplace parapher nalia as wero made when tho fireplace was an important featur of the house hold. Brass firedogs, shovel, tongsr bel lows and coal scnttle make a pioture of truly magnificent beauty wnen they are kept bright by day and aro flashed upon by the flames at night. The old fash ioned trivet, too that little three legged repository of dishes th.atwere to be kept warm may be found and adds to tho quaintness of the hearth. - The Ilatpln. "Did your ever realize, ' ' said a jndge, 4 'that in spite of the stringent laws against carrying concealed weapons women are constantly . armed with the most terrible weapon -i. e., the hatpin. It is long and sharp as an Italian stilet to, and in spite of recent proofs to the contrary I would rather face a woman with a loaded revolver than one with hatpin in han;d. If women only had the nerve to use it, you wouldn't hear of many assaults Jtipon them. " St. Louis Republic. JJ :- V Ipfc aawwQJittuj.ncjiiBMiJwisKtfiAiiir'Wi.

When the lord chancellor enters the house of lords to preside over its deliber ations, he is accompanied by his 4 'purse bearer. This functionary, however, does not carry the purse of tho lord chancellor, which would bo a weighty re sponsibility, as his lordship draws a salary of 1 0, 000 a year. The purse the "pursebearer" solemnly carries, as, ar rayed in court dress, he precedes the lord chancellor to and from the houso of lords, is a gorgeous satchel, embroidered with the royal arms and other heraldic devices in white and gold and lined with tho richest silk. It is supposed to contain the great seal. As a matter of fact, that emblem of a mighty sovereignty is nev er 'in the satchel. If it were, tho respon sibility of the 4 'pursebearer" would be great much greater indeed than if ho had to bear a purse that carried a salary of 10,000 a year. The ceremony of carrying the purse in the house of lords is but ono of the many venerable fictions which play a pictur esque part in the parliamentary pro cedure. The purse is placed on the wool sack. It indicates that the lord chan cellor is in possession of the great seal and therefore entitled to perform his duties as speaker of the houso of lords. London Globe. Making Old Potatoes New. This is the way new potatoes aro man ufactured in Paris: Old potatoes, the cheapest and smallest that can be pur chased, are bought by tho rafistoleurs de pommes do terre, as they aro called, who carry their property to the banks of the Seine, a good supply cf water being necessary. The .potatoes are put into tubs half filled with water ; then they are vigorously stirred about by tho feet and legs cf the manufacturers, who roll up their trousers and stamp on the raw potatoes until they have not only com pletely rubbed bff their dark skins, but have also given them that smooth and satinlike appearanco which is so much appreciated by gourmands. They are then dried, neatly wrapped in paper and arranged in small baskets, which are sold at the marchands des comestibles for 5 francs apiece. The oddest part cf the whole business is that the rafisto leurs mako no secret cf their trado andt may daily be seen at work near the Poirt Louis Philippe, within siglit cf the Hotel de Ville. Quite Possible. A correspondent asks if it is not prac ticable for a person to carry enough stored electricity and use it for the pur pose of heating the body in cold weather by means of a system of electric heating apparatus pieced under the clothing. We presume it is. A fow 200 ampere hour cells scattered among the pockets, connected in series, ought to do the business. They would probably weigh 1500 pounds or more, and to this must be added the weight of heat apparatus. The letter need net necessarily bo in tho form of a street car heater. It could be spread out cn a fiat surface. It would not look well, for instance, to carry a box shaped heater across tho stomach. Care must be taken to prevent short cir cuiting, which might result in roasting to death. Electrical Age, Promising. Bob, an ambitious boy, a little more than 6 years old, has only ono wish to become a journalist. The other day ho entered the room of his mother, a look of triumph upon his face : "Well, mother, as I told you, it was Marcella who ate the largo peach. " "Hoy do yea know it!"
