Judfro Allen has a mind full of anec dotes and never tires of telling them, says a lotter from Hamilton, Ga. H recalls with clearness every Incldont ol sooming unimportance which has trans pired during his caroor. lie nas nearg speechos from tho lips of Webster, Clay and Calhoun. Ho can almost re pent a speech he board delivered bj Henry Clay In a crowded streot ol Macon when he predlctod a civil war. He was asked for a story, and as nn habit Is, ho had sat for a moment quiet ly smoklnir bis plno. At longth he placed his pipe In his pocket and said. We 1. I will tell you a roal love story. It all hunncned twenty voars beforo the war, whon I was attending school at tho Georgia univorsity. At that t.mc there exlstod among the proud south erners no groater prejudice than that against horso-drovers. A horse-drovor was considered littlo better than a horso-thief. I mot ono day a young man of this class, and in spite of my iharo in tho common prejudice l was struck with his easy mannor. I saw enough of him to come to tho conclu sion that ho would graco anybody s parlor, so ono day I asked him ,i no would not liko to call on a young lady friend of mine. Ho said he would bo glad to do so, and that afternoon we made a call on Miss Priggins. We found that sho had already two callers, young mon of tho town. I Introduced my friend, tho horso-drover, and you would have boon amused to have seen tho countenances of the young, mon fall. Scarcely a half dozen words wcro exchanged boforo Miss Triggins' first callers made thoir exit My friond took In tho situation at onco, but ho had the good senso to not show it. After awhile ho was turning music for Miss Priggins while she played up on tho piano. When sho had finished, ho was asked if he could not play. "I play sometimes," was his reply. "Will you not play for usP" Miss Priggins thon asked. "Ho reluctantly consonted. Ho took his position in front of tho instrument and wo were thrilled with tho musio ho made. He touched the koys of the piano with tho ease and graco of a mas ter and whon ho had finished and io dised to play more ho had won tho friendsh'p of Miss Priggins, who was on his deparluro cordial in her initva- tion for him to call again. "Well, ho made several pleasant cans d tiring Jn is stay. Ho camo back the next season and before ho loft town he and Miss Priggins approached tbo voung lady's father and askod his con sent to thoir marriage "Since you both seom to desire it, I will not oppose .your marriage, but if my daughter makes a hard bed sho must lio upon it." "It shall be as soft as feathers can make ft," was the young man's pleas ant rojoindcr. "Tho wedding was sot for Sept 10. Whon he came for his bride everyone was surprised at the display ho mauo He wore an expensive suit and a scr vant in livery drove two magnificent iron grsys to his line carnage, borne ono. made bold by curiosity, approach Bd tho servant and inquirod who the young man might be. "Wv. sir, my master Is do riches' man in Kentuck', I 'xpect; sir. Ho owns de fines' farm In de country,' and 'nears to me ha I 0' Louisville." Further inquiry elicited the Infor mation that the drover was really a man of means, who bad traveled ex tcnsivolv and had many accomplish monts. Sufllce it to say Miss Priggins was willing to accept tho bed she had made. He Sold the Samples. A drummer who bad just arrived from Arizona was In town last week taking orders for shirts. He says there r bad men down thore. The cowboys jot hold of him and wanted to buy his lamples. Ho replied that he wouldn't mil them for any price. "Won't eh?" said a bystandor, "well, now I guoss you will." The tough citizen piay fnllv toved with the handle of a small izAfl cannon that he carried in his hnlL and told "the boys" to help them selves. And the jerseys, many-striped hose, and underwear of all kinds, was dnvldod amonir the crowd. "The boys paid tho scared drummer his own price without a murmur, but declared that hirt were scarce In Arizona, spec! ally some o' those fancy ones, and that lifa was too short to wait for shirts or dered from 'Frisco. The drummer was the back- had his hat knock ed ofi was playfully pushed around amomg the crowd and twauy invueu nn to drink. He didn't refase. and was tho meekest-looking drummer we've aecn in many a day when be arrived in Lngonla.
