From tliaChrlHtSnii at W6rk.-*'.t'':"i'-
There may be woman more jealous
and suspecting by nature than was
yidow Hester Hatch but if so, the
people* of Algonac would certainly
pray that they might never!choose
thfit pleasant town as a residence.
Tall, thin arid angular was the Wid
ow Hester Hatch, with scanty light,
hair twisted tightly into the smallest
.of knots,' and held in plaice by a shell
comb of severe pattern restless eyes
she had, of a pale: grayi .shaded by
thin colorless lashes a uiouth whose
thin lips shut so tight as toleave a
white line along their edges, while her
whole face wore ail habitually injured
An injured woman the widow con-!
sideredherself, who,went through life,
cherishing the belief that the world
nvas in a league to wrong and defraud
tier When she carried her butter and
eggs to the.store, she always took the
opportuiiity to inquire of her neigh
bors what they had received before
she would believe that the merchant
had not given her less than the usual
If he had not the article she asked
or she went away in the belief that he
was simply Hiding it ifor some favored
customer while if he produced it she
was equally tortured lest he consid
ered it unsalable.
If she was invited to a tea party or
quilting, or any of the mild festivities
ot Argonac, she always sat on the ex
treme edge .of her chair in the most
perpendicular of. attitudes, and re
plied to all coriverrtation in the brief
est of monosyllables, while sheiriward
ly weighed every word and action in
the light of its possible relation to
herself if she was not invited she loid,
the fact up and.brooded over it 'with
a certain frosty, resentment which
nothing could ever thaw.
The simplest pleasures were even em
bittered by her-suspicion. She was
fond of flowers, and would have en
joyed her well kept garden if 6he had
not constantly suffered with tho fear
that someone's, .flowers would look
better than hers, or they would have
a variety she had not.
With Mrs." Ames, the village post
master's wife, whose yard was usual
ly gay with flowers, she waged a cease
less tliough one-sided rivalry, inas-,
much as the lady was wholly unaware
of its existence* On her'head, too,
rested one of the widow's darkest, sus
picions, for as' it chanced one sprins
they both sent to the same florist for
some choice lily bulbs, and because
Mrs. Ames received hers a few days
sooner, she always cherished the firm
and implacable belief that Air. Ames
had purposely withheld her own in or
der that,his! wife's might get started
firsts .'.! -:7"
"I mistrusted it at the time," she
used to relate "he didn't look like a:
man ought to look when hesatd there
was liotnin' for me, an', when-1 said,
'it is very, strange, for I was expecting
some bulbs he said he was sorry but
they hadn't come, and that very, at
ternoon Mrs. Truoblood told me that
Mrs. Ames Had got her'n. -The very
next day I went "again, and he" said
'no,' they hadn't come! yet)': but he?
couldii't look me in the eye
said it,'an' when I tried to catch his
eye he pretended to be busy stampin'
some letters. And the next day was
Sunday, so you see Mrs. 'Ames ha4
had hei four days before I got mine,
an' when lie did give 'em to me
they looked that dry as though he
might have kept them a. week. But
that wasn't the strangest part 'of*it
if you'll believe me not one of them
bulbs came up the next spring—not
one," with a grim nod of her head by
way of emphasis. "Of course, I don't
'say that anybody came and' pulled
'em.up inthe night I make it- a roole
never to judge people but I do. say
that it, is very curious how Mrs.
Ames's all happened to live through
the winter ana none of mine."
-But happily for kindly Mrs. Ames,
who was without a single spark of
jealousy, she.never knew the imputa
tion she rested under, nor why her
friendly advances to the Widow Hatch
were so frigidly received.'
Another cause of suflering to tha
good woman was.tfiat she was total
ly destitute of any sense of humor.
A joke always mystified, and as a
consequence aggravated her, as when
one Hallow-e'eu the Frew boys appear
ed at her window with a jack-o -Ian
tern .carved from a pumpkin, /instead
of laughing .at the apparition' as did
the other, neighbors,.: she hied herself
across the field to Mr. Frew's and
made grievous and tearful complaint
of the treatment she had: received,
for Mrs. Hatch could "drop" into
tears as easily as Mr. Wegg into poet
ry and the fact that she and her
daughter were "lone, unprotected fe
males" was impressed" on her listen-,
Mr. Frew endeavored to mollify her
resentmobt with the plea that they
were only in fun, and that boys would!
be boys, though on their return home
he reproved them'for their indiscre
tion in a manner that Solomon would
have approved of.
For Mrs.' Hatch was not the only
occupant of the tall, thin, red' house
in the edge of .thelittlecounnry village
her daughter, Almira Sophia sharkl
it with her, and never was the old
adage, ''Like mother, like daughter,*'
more strikingly verified the same in
vertebrate spine, sallow complexion,
stony eyes, colorless hair, and worst
Of all,(tbecame jealous, suspicious na
ture. Without question the poor girl
was to be pitied for the blighted at
mosphere which she had grown up.
Perhaps, indeed, people of thatiem
.perament are.to be more pitied than:
blamed lor the diseased state of mind
which fills their lives with such need
less misery at the same time our
compassion is usually bestowed on
those whp suffer because of the"
jealousy, rathor tbaa the ones
who en-,
dure the.pangs.
From Almira Sophia's earliestchild-:
hood she had:heen. on the Jookotttr'for
'slights and injuries^a search in which
-they who engage selden "fail. to find
their object. When a little:girl in pin
afores, she used to come home from
school :with: lone complaints of the
teacher's partiality,' of the'girls who
had: made -faces at her, and the boys
who :had aallad her names. As slie
^rew older:and her self consciousness'
mcronaed, if any one looked at her
shelancied^they* were: criticisingher

appearance if any one laughed where
she was. she was sure she was the ob
ject of their mirth.
..Both mother and daughter were
members of ono of the^illagechurches,
which they managed to keep about
half the time in hot water with their
complaints. Each successive pastor,
down to the last incumbent, dreaded
the sight .of the widow's old white
notye halting at tho parsonage, for lie
knew he was in all probability to heor
of a dereliction on the j,aft of someone.
Deacon Hail, who had to pass her
house on his way to the village, used'
to hurry up to avoid being called in
and asked some such qjestion as:.
Christian spirit he
thought it showed in brother Gabriel
to sell sugar that fell short four ounces
in nine pounds?" or "Did he think, it
was the way ono' church member
should serve another, an' a woman
an' a widow at that, for Zenas Wise
to buy her calf for eight dollars, when
he knew Aaron Teeplegottenforhis'n,
and hers was worth overy cent aa
But one week, the Widow Hatch and
Almira Sophia were not in their accus
toiried places in the. weekly prayer,
meeting, and the following Sunday
their pew. in church was vacant at
both morning and evening service, on
occurrence so almost unprecedented
that early in the week Deacon Hall
.called to inquire as to its cause.
"Well," said" his wife on his return,
''which is'sick, Mis' Hatch or Almira
"Neither Of 'em," was the curt re
ply,and then the deacon sant into his
favorite chair with an audiblegr^an.
"No, Lovila, the widow says some
body, but she didn't tell who, had
been slandering 'em, an' she cried, ah'
said that she didn't, think after she
and -Almira Sophia had lived here ail
their lives, an' tried to be respectable
women and always paid their dues
to the. chiiroh, thatv they would
be treated like this sho said she
kne\y there was some in thechurchfelt
above her, but she hadn't paid any
attention-to that, and that she and
Almira Sophia had been Blighted and
overlooked, and put upon time an'
again, but she had overlooked that—
but to be slandered by her own church
members was a little too' much, "arid
no herself alone she might have bQrne
that, but her fatherless child—undsho
and Almira Sopoia, felt.that underthe
circumstances it was impossible for
them to go to that church any longer,
and had concluded to ask for letters
of dismissal."
"And what did Almira Sophiasay?"
"I suppose she'd have said the sime
thing, for she's her mother's echo, but
I didn't see her at all. Mis' Hatch
said she,was completely crushed. She
hoped, but she was afraid sho'd never
be the same naain she was before."
"But'what-is the slander? I'm sure
I havn't heard anything."
"Nor I neither. When I asked her
she said it was too public for her to
need to repeat it. I should think,"
with a momentary "twinltle of his eye,
"by the fuss she mftde that it must'be
pretty- bad, either murder or arson or
burglary at least." •.
The deacon wos a -mild-mannered
man, of great propriety of conduct
and. speech,r but after a moriient's
pause he exclaimed:
"Hang it nil, I, wish they would go,
.then maybe, I could haye a little peace
of my life. Only last winter there was
a row because Mrs. Spence took her
little boy out of Almira Sophia's Sun
day school class into her own and I
had to get that straightened out: and
not many months ago I had to go to
the new minister and. tell him that
Sister Hatch saw, him go to Harvey
Apjp's (was all on business, too) an'
she felt very much hurt, and didn't
know what she'd done, that the new
minister should go right pa,st her to
call on the other church members."
when he
And'as the deacon's -feelings rose
with the retrospect, he exclaimed with
added emphasis: "Ihope they willgo
dumbed if l'don'tl"
Algol)ac was a.little country village,
"where when any pebble of incident
dropped 'into its quiet surface, the re
sulting.-agitation .quickly reachcd its
outer border. So it was soon known
the Widow Hatch and Almira Sophia
had stopped attending church, and
were going to withdraw from it, be
cause they had been slandered by the
members, and. that the widow had
bean ominously heard to remark that
"if some people didn't look out they'd
have the law taken to tliem."
The slarider formed the center of
postqffice. gpssip, and furnished the
-principal topic at the sewing society
indeed, One or two!
tea parties were giv
en on. the strength of it, and any num
ber of afternoon and. evening calls..
A leading member of the opposite
church (fo Algonac boasted only two
denominations, commonly known
from tjie color of their euifices, as the
"Brown" and"White Church," be
tween whom existed the bitter rivalry
too often seen in small villages) was
reported. to have bai'd that she Was
not' a bit Surprised but always had
her opinion about some of those
"White church" people, if they did
act us. though they thought themselves
saints.' And tho -'fBiown church"
ministei publicly thanked the Lord
that "peace, and hrrmony reigned
among them and that the voice of
raise accusation was not heard in
their tent of Zion." To which the
•White church''. people retorted that
rowri church:'
And as the result, a union-meeting,
which had been started and was)ruin
isirtg to. bring the two churches into
a closer bond of unity, w$s broken up
and the.old root of bitterness between
them took anew and vigorousgrowth:
The adolescent lawyer whohadhutig
out his sign in Algonac, and wasby no
means overwhelmed with clients, per
ceptibly brightened at the"! 'mention of
a libel suit, and not Only read
law on such cases, but went so far as
to stroll out past the widow's hbuse
and on his return to call at the door,
ostensibly to ask for a glass' of water,
with the idea of introducing tha inter
esting Subject.
But the stern glare -of the widow's
pale eyes, the
coldness of her demeanor,
and the awful unresponsiveness^ her
tone, were too much for his.-youthful
audacity, and he hastily beataretreat.
But during this time the
strangest of
it all Was that nobody knew what the
slander was, or who had' perpetrated
fc, v' Almira Sophia remained invisible,-'
and Mrs. Hatch, when approached
on the matter by those of sufficienf
temerity of spirit had ossunfied to con-'
sider.it univeisally known, and hod
contented herself with tearful allusions
to their condition as ••lonewiminGh to
be put upon by everybody," and vague
taunts that "folks had better be care
ful what they say if they don't wont
trouble." 1
But t^mrans^nly,^^
knot of loungers in his shop with th(
opinion that the scandal was that the
widow had caused her husband's death
by petrifying him by a look,and one ol
the listeners, after tho laugh had died
away had hazarded the guess that
"'twas thut thu widow, or Almira So
phia was going to be married a wit
ticism which elicted: another roar.
Nearly every ono held a different
opinion, and each held to his owr
with the greatest .tenacity, so that,
disputes weie not only numerous and
frequent, but were carried to such
heights that Mrs. Slee and Miss Crumt
did not speak to each other for six
.months, and Farsohs & Whitbeck,
butchers, became so angry tnat they
dissolved their business connection or
the spot.
In one thing", however, all agreed
that it must be decidedly grave and
affecting the moral character of the
accused. As to the accuser, that was
equally difficult to fix" upon. Suspi-
cion rested upon several, who in turn
relented the imputation angrily,
while.the feeling of mistrust pervading
the air, and likely to fall at any time
on no one knew, whom gave to tb
community a general sense of restlesf
There is no knowing how long tht
mysterious.slander 'would have con
tinued to disturb Algonac, or what
further complications its people would
have, become involved because of it,
had it not been for Aunt Parnel Bas
sit, who. was won't to boast that she
"meant to seeias fur into a milstupas
anybody could," and who had^thc
coui-age and perseverance to probe thf
matter to tlie-bottom.
"Well," she triumphantly an
nounced one day, stopping on hei
homeward way where Deacon Hal
and his wife sat on their porch, "I'v«
found out what there is to that scan,
dal business."
"You have? Do tell usl" they both
"That's just what I stopped for,
though I ought to be hum this minutt
skimmin' the milk for the calves but
I knew you'd be proper glad to heai
it. Well, I got tired of hearin' "folkg
say first one thing an' then another,
and rtold Benajah I was goin' to
know the rights of the story so after
I done up my dinner work and bake3
some pies for supper and breakfast 1
clapped on my things an' run over to
Mis' Hatches' an' says I:
'Well, sister Hatch, I'm glad to see
you around I hadn't seen you nor
Almira Sophia to mettin' lately,.an'
I didn't know bjit you might be hav
in' a spell of your rheumatism.'
Tm well enough,' says she, pretty
short like.
'Almira Sophia hain't been havin'
another touch of that weakness in her
back?" says I.
'No, she hasn't' says she.
'Well then, if you ain't sick, I hope
you ain't fell from grace, or are havin'
doubts in your mind about the doc
'I don't think we've fallen from
grace as much as somn other people,1
says she, as stiff as steel-yards, an' il
you want to know why. Aliriira So
phia and I haven't been to irieetin'I
can tell you it's because we don't
care to go where we've been slandered
as wo have by our own church mem
bers. ,
'Slandered!' gays I, 'what hev-they
been a sayin'?'
'I shouldn't thiiikyoii'd need to ajsk,'
'says she 'we couldn't go on the street
without bein' stared at so, that we've
had our mail sent to Honedale.'
'But what hev they said? I've been
to hum pretty stiddy lately, an' I
haven't "heard anything,'—an' that
was gospel truth.
'I doh't kjiow asl care to repeat it,
says she. 'but if ppople don't stop
talkin' about us they may get into
And she shut her mouth as if to say
'that's all you'll find out by me but
land alive, I've known Mis' Hatch
ever since she was Hester Miggs, an'
her an me sat on the front Beat in the
old red deestrict' schoolhouse and
can't scare me by puckerin' her lips
an' rollin' the whites of her eyes.
'But what is it that's been said?' 1
kep' sayin'.
'To' think that people should put
on us because we air widowed and
fatherless,' says she, ?an' we've al
ways tried to live as respectable wim
men should. If Almira Sophia had
acted like some girls I could mention,
I shouldn't wonder but I leave it to
you if y'Ou ever saw any unbecoming
conduct on her part."
A»' she wiped her eyes an'looked
out the winder where Almira Sophia
was pickj||npme posey seeds inthe
garden. fUH?
I liked to have laughed right out at
the idee, for Almira Sophia was an
old maid before she was out of baby
close, almost as stiff an' prim as she
is now, an'.I don'tbelievewould know
-how to act improper if sne wanted to.
But I stuck to the pint, an'she told
me arid )vhat do you suppose it is?"
and Aunt Parnel paused to heigthen
the dramatic effect of her narrative.
"I can't imagine!" exclaimed both of
her listeners, as they bent forward
with eager interest. "Do tell us."
"Well,"—slowly and impressively—
"she said that LavoriiaPool, who
was Her. husband's cousin, told her
that Arista Blair .told her .that she
heard Fidelia Waters say that Almira
Sophia had been to' church so steady

.A Confederate Oiant's Sword.
From the Washington Hatchet.
Among the relics of the'late war
stowed away in the United States Ord
nance Museum on seventeenth-st, is
a sabre fully five feet long, which wat
found on the barttle-fleld of Manassas.
This formidable looking weapon was
evidently made in some village black
smith'sshop, from the fabled plow
share, at the outbreak of the waf, and
its handle appears toliave been carved
with a jack Knife from a cow's born
A Virginian who visited the museum
"recognized the sabre as one. that had
been used by a giant Virginia cavalry
man in "Job" Stuart's command.
"The cavalryman in question/'said
the Virginian to The Hatchet, "wa?

comes to us in a little work just received,
in the shape of a humorous artide entitlod
"The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac," illustra

New York artist. The old and familiar
signs with which we are well acquainted
through almanacs and otherwise, are given
a now every day meaning, and we defy any
one to look at them or to read the text
without indulging in a hearty laugh. "Bill

Xiord Tolleiflache, who hasjastcoifl^
pleted his 80th year, is said to be the
model English landlord. He possesses
about 46,000 acres
oflandin Cheshire,
and during the -whole of the a^ricul
turaldeprcssion, irom'
1877 to 1^86j:
he had neither
vacant farm nor &
tenant in arrears. His estate in
Cheshi'rehasj during hxa lifetime, been
cut up itito farms averagiqg about
200 acres in extent,: his lordsnip con
sideriugtnat a thrifty farmer with
sons and daughters could do etcel
lently on a 200-acre farmrwhile he
would suffer, severely on a smaller
•holding. In order to break up his
estate into farms of that size, he built
or rebuilt, between fifty and sixty
farm houses at the' cost of £148,000,
each, of these homesteads costing
about $2,800. In addition to this,
Lord Tollemache has built 200 cot
tages for the. accommodation of the
laborers. In r^ard to the education
of children on his estate, an anecdote
is told of bis lordship's practical com
mon sense. Lord Tollemache
anxious to provide mixed schools for
the, education of the farmers' and
laborers' children but after the build
ing had been erected at considerable
expense he found that the tenant
farmers objected to send their sons to
the same schools with the laborers'
children. Having listened quietly to
the master's complaint,: the noble
lord said:: "There £s: only, one way
out of the difficulty I will send my
own sons to the school.1' For nearly
two years Lord Tollemache's children
attended the school, and, their father
said, "to their undoubted advantage."
