Register Don't you think sorre of the readers of the Register did not like it because I did Dot tell them if I borrowed Old Muse again? Well.yes, I borrowed her several times and I thought I was getting along first rate. The folks all seemed to be glad to see me come, and treated me splendid. But the next summer we had hired an old brick and stone mason to neip us to make the brick for brother Cyrus' house. I moulded brick at one table, and the old boss at the other table. We had a little ,old man to wait on the tables to put the mud up, and keep us in sand aDd mud. One day we had run up on the mud maker, and I was sitting on the end of my table, when this little old man came to me and said, "I want to look at your hand." "What do you want to look at my hand for?" "I want to tell your fortune." My fortune? Any fool can tell my fortune!" He said,- I can tell you all that's go ing to happen to you." I don't want to know all that's go ing to happen to me. It's enough to know what's already taken place." "Well, let me look at your hand." "Well, here it is; now look." "So he took my hand in his, and oh how solemn and wise he did look! Af ter looking awhile, he said, "You are visiting a girl, and you think you are going to marry her." "How do you know that?" "I can see it on your hand." "Well, go ahead." ;But you won't marry her. " "Who said so?" "I say so! No, sir, you will never marry the girl." "And who is to hinder?" "You'll see!" "Well, what next?" "The girl you will marry you have never seen or heard of. She lives a long ways off way in another country and you will meet her very unex pectedly; and you and the girl will fall in love with each other at first sight." "Well, that's comforting! Is she pretty? is she good and nice? For if I am going to lose Rosy Cheeks, I want something nice and good." "Yes, she is nice and good, and you will marry her, and you will raise a big family of boys and girls." "Good, by hoakeys, that's nice! Well, go ahead. What's next?" "You and she will live happily to gether, and " "Hold on! That's enough. 1 don't want to know any more. We've got the girl and the babies, so let's go to work." That fall I cast my first yote for president; was at Fredericktown; went down Saturday. On that Sunday I went to church with Rosy Cheeks, and I thought I was all right; but don't you think that girl gave me "the mit ten" and a whole pair of gloves, and "the sack" to boot! My, my! It at first nearly took my breath. But, as I was never guilty of sitting down and grieving and sniveling, I. said, "Well, she ain't the only pretty girl in this world, and as I am to be provided for, I ain't going to let one little girl break my heart not by a jugfull, I ain't!" That summer Mr. and Mrs. Pierce, our minister, had been living with us, and November they had bought the farm which is called the Langdon place, and had gone back to the place they came from to get their household stuff to go to keeping house. One beautiful Saturday afternoon, about Thanksgiving time, I went to get my gun to go hunting. As I took my Old Betsy down from the hooks, brother Henry came in with his gun an old shell of a thing; you could al most run your thumb in the muzzle. He said, "Thid., I wish you would let me have your gun to go squirrelling this afternoon, and you take mine to kill deer with; for if I should shoot a squirrel with mv gun there wouldn't be anything but a hole with a streak ol skin around it; and if you should shoot a deer with my gun the bones would be left, anyway; it would not take more than the forequarters, if you did not shoot lengthwise of the deer. As it was Saturday afternoon, all of my sisters and buch a lot of sisters as I had! as full of the Old Harry as any four gals I ever saw began to poke fun at me. As I had on my old hunt ing duds. I didn't look as nicely dress ed as I have seen in the city some times. Well, these sisters got to picking at my rags, and tried to make me go and clean up to go out in the woods among the wild animals, and among the brush. Now, I always wanted, when I went hunting, to wear such clothes it would not hurt them if I did get down on my stomach and crawl like a lizzard after a deer. No, sir, I TRUTH: never wanted to wear good clothes. Well, they kept up snatching off a bit here, and another a bit in another piace, until l looked just like a goose that had been picked. At last I jerk ed away from them and made a rush for out doors. As I. did so, every last gal made a dive for me and got hold of my hat brim, and tore the old brim all off, except a piece in front like the frontpiece of a cap. When I got away from the torments, I turned around and told those gals I would wear those rags if I met Queen Victoria, and would go and shake hands with her ah in is time tney were calling me to come back, and put on some better clothes. Well, I got away from them, and when I had got up at the foot of Pilot Knob I killed a nice deer and hung it up, and then went on. I had not gone far before I came across a large flock of turkeys. I don't just remember how many of them I did kill; but as many as I could well pck on my back. When I got home, the family had had their supper. So I thought I would carry Henry's gun home, and a couple of turkeys, and get my own gun. When I'had got out into the street, about half way to his house, I saw something coming towards me. I at first thought it was cattle, but as it came nearer I saw it was folks. When I came to them I saw it was Mr. and Mrs. Pierce, and a lady with them. When they met me they stopped to shake hands, and introduce me to the lady. And I just walked up and took her hand and, oh my! it was just the littlest, softest hand! Oh my, it fairly 6tirred my gizzard! Well, they went on to the house, and I took the gun home and got my own. When I got back home, I slipped up stairs to my room and slicked up to the best of my ability. WThen I went down, the women had gotten the sup per ready and a plate for me. As I went in, one of my sisters said, ,4My brother Theodore." I noticed, as 1 went in, the young lady looked up quick as if she was expecting someone. But when she saw a young man clean ed up I saw she looked disappointed, and I noticed that every time the door was opened she would look up quick. And so it went on for most of the eve ning. At last, some one of the com pany asked me about my hunt, and then that girl looked at me for a good long look. She told me, years after wards, all the first evening she kept wondering why the hunter did not come in. Said it was a long before she could make it all come right. Not until one day when when she was rid ing out in the woods horseback, I was hunting in the same woods. I saw her coming; I did not want her to see me in my old hunting rags; so I stepped behind a big tree that stood by me. She would have passed by without her having seen me, but that old horse saw me as he passed by, and gave a jump and would have thrown the girl off had not I sprung and caught the bridle with one hand and the girl on my arm, and set her back on the horse again. Well, well! It just made me feel good all over. And did the old man's words come true? Did I not marry that girl, and did not she bear me eight boys and four girls, and did not we live forty-odd years together? And did we not see as much happiness as commonly falls to the lot of men? I think so. T. P. R. A Dose ot Their Own Mediae. It has not passed from the memory of many of the readers of the Demo crat that in 1865, the year of the close of the war, the Republicans of Missou ri held a delegate convention in St. Louis of which the late Arnold Krekel was president and Charles D. Drake the leading spirit. It was known as "the Drake Conven tion" and its more important enact ments as "the Draconian Code." It declared purpose was to remodel the Constitution of the State. This it did most radically and supplemented the work usually performed by similar bodies by entering into a diabolical partisan conspirancy against the lib erties of the people. It not only remodeled the old Con stitution by upsetting it. but it concoc ted a series of ironclad oaths for vo ters, ministers of the gospel, lawyers and teachers for the purpose of perpet uating the domination of the Republi can party in defiance of the popular will; and to accomplish its thousands and lens of thousands of taxpayers ol the State were driven ignomiciously from the ballot, ministers of tha gos pel from the churches, lawyers from the bar and teachers, male and female, from the schools. The Legislature which was elected under it enacted a statute by which a partisan Govenor appointed in every icounty a board of partisan registrars who were authorized to select the vo TBMS-$1.60 a Year, in Adrasce NUMBEK23. ters who should be permitted to vote at the elections and to reject those who were not allowed to exercise the franchise. In many of the Congressional dis tricts not a single registrar was appoin ted who was not a Republican; and for the most part they were the supple tools of unscrupulous leaders and per formed their duties in a dictatorial, tyrannical and partisan spirit. They literally appointed the voters, accepted and registering whom they pleased and rejecting and refusing to register whom they pleased. Never theless in two of the nine districts, Sixth and Ninth, Democrats were elec ted to Congress, and the election re turns, as certified by the County Clerks to the Secretary of State, Francis Rod man, attested the fact. In the Sixth District the returns showed that James Shields was elected and in the Ninth William F. Switzler, the present editor of the Democrat. In fact, these returns attested the election to Congress of Colonel SwitZ' ler in 1866 and also in 1868. But in each of these cases the Re publican Secretary of State and the Republican leaders behind him. many of whom bv the grace of god are still living in the State, refused to stand by the verdict of juries of their own selec tlon, and by the flagrant usurpation of judicial functions, assumed to decide without evidence and against evidence who were and who were not legal vo ters, and by throwing out the vote and disfranchising whole counties, declared that the candidates whom the people had elected were defeated, and certifi cates of election were issued to those whom the election returns showed were defeated. No greater outrage against the right of the people to be represented by the men of their choice was ever commit ted in the history of constitutional li berty. And yet the Republican party of Mis souri, and some of the very parties to the fraud, who are now conspicuously noisy in this State for "a free election and a fair count," indorsed the outrage New suppose a case. ,- According to the returns of the re cent election made to the Secretary of State by the County Clerks under the identical same law which regulated such matters in 1866 and 1868, Clark (Rep.), it the First District, has a plu rality of 429 over Hatch (Dem.); in the Seventh District, Tracey (Rep.), 393 over Heard (Dem.); in the Eighth Dis trict, Hubbard (Rep.), 70 over Bland (Dem.), and in the Ninth District, Tre loar (Rep.), 132 over Clark (Dem.). These are small pluralities, and very much smaller than the majorities cer tified to the Secretary of State in 1866 and 1868 in favor of Shields and Switz ler. In fact, the majority given each of them was larger than the pluralities of all four of the Republican candidates named, Now suppose that Mr. Lesueur, our Democratic Secretary of State, and Mr. Stone, our Democratic Gevenor, were so dishonest as to follow the example of Rodman and Fletcher, and on some trumped-up pretext or other were to throw out the vote of Adair County in Hatche's district, and the votes of some Republican counties in Heard's, Bland's and Clark's districts (in Bland's, for ex ample, Camden or Dallas, or of even Boonviile Township), and declare they were elected and grant certificates to them instead of their Republican oppo nents, and thus administer to the grand old party a small dose of its own med icine, what would the Republicans of Cooper County and of the State say to such a preceeding? If our Secretary of State and Govern or were to commit such an outrage and to stain their official hands by so dia bolical a usurpation, they would not do more than Rodman and Fletcher did in 1866 and 1868. More than this: The Republicans of Missouri, including many who yet live and vote in Cooper County, cannot say they did not indorse the usurpa tion of Rodman; because, after he com mited these violations of law and the outrages on the rights of the people, they voted for and re-elected him to the office he had disgraced. Now suppose another case. Suppose Lesueur snd Stone were to Rodmanize" a few Republican Con gressmen in 1894, as Rodman and Fletcher did Democrats in 1866 and 1868, and thus force down Republican throats a few spoonfuls of the ipecac and calomel and jalap they gavethe Democrats, what would the vaunted champions of "a free election and a fair count" then say ? Were not Lesueur and Stone honest, and, as genuine Democrats, loyal to the laws of the land, such a dose might be now emptied from a big spoon upon the blessed tongues of the g. o. p. in grand, imperial Old Missouri.

In the present struggle " with China they have voluntarily contributed $15, 000,000 to carry oa the war. The Bank of Nobles has donated $1,000,000 and loaned $15,000,000 more without interest. Many noblemen and raer-; chants have given $100,000 each, and even the poorest citizens have contrib uted small sums. ' But the Chinese manifest no such spirit. They are not willing to part ' with their money or -risk their lives. -The highest officials steal government funds, and the poldiers try to skulk out of every battle. In the naval fight of Yula seven Chinese Ships remained in the rear and would take no part in the battle. Captain Fong sailed away with his ship before a gun was fired. His cowardly conduct caused him to lose his head. The people generally are indifferent to the final issue of the war. All tbey care for is their own safety, and they are perfectly willing to see their gov ernment smashed and the empire di vided among other nations, provided their personal and property rights suf fer no jury. Unless there is a speedy change in Chinese sentiment and character their country will fall a prey to one or more European powers. England, Russia or France could seize and hold the entire country and rule it as easily as England rules India. Such a nation cannot hope to hold its own against Japan. The Chinese are their own worst ene mies. They are not fit to have a gov ernment of their own. Atlanta Co ititution. An Old Craze Breaks Out Again. The Second Adventists are putting in their work in the new state of Wash ington. Many people around Tacoma have become convinced that the United States will be destroyed by revolution and fire inside of a few days, and that the entire world will be destroyed in side of a year. Two Adventists are organizing a col ony at Tacoma to fly to British Colum bia before the trouble comes. They say that the United States will be de stroyed first.but that all who leave the country will be temporarily saved. Later all the people of the world will be destroyed except 12,000 of each of the twelve tribes of Israel, who will be caught up in the clouds while the earth is devastated, .and will afterwards be allowed to return and Inhabit it. The teachings of these cranks have' caused many families to destroy their pictures, bric-a-brac and furniture and other articles which they cannot carry off in their flight. The craze is said to be widespread, and the people are very much excited. It ia passing strange that people should give themselves up to such delu sions in this enlightened age, but in ev ery generation prophets appear who predict the speedy end of the world. and they always find followers. Any man with the gift of gab who is appar ently in earnest can exploit the most absurd theory and find followers who will take stock in it.
