TENNESSEE SOCIETY.
How Two of. lt* Mimbtri Proved
Themaslvas Equal to the Occa
sion.
The Chattanooga (Tenn.) correspon
dent of the Chicago Times some time
ago attended a typical Tennessee
wedding at Sam Lowell's cabin on
Sand Mountain. People came on foot
and on horseback from all parts of
the mountains, for the Lowells were
•1'sassiety folks" and had a comforta
ble cabin with ten acres of cleared
land.
It was early in the afternoon, but a
number of visitors had already arrived.
The women were in the house holding
consultations as to whether the bride
should wear her bonnet or not during
the ceremony and assisting her in the
preparation of her trousseau, which
was the finest ever seen on the moun
tain. The dress was made of white
muslin, and around the waist was a
wide yellow sash, with streamers
almost reaching the floor. This was
the pride of 'Mandy Lowell's heart it
was wider nnd longer than any sash
ever beheld in that neighborhood and
the color was brighter. She insisted
on wearing her wedding hat "else
what tarnal good war thar in a-buyin1
of it?" she argued. It had been
brought all the way from Atlanta, and
been added to after it came until it
was a wonderful work of art. The
high crown was surmounted by an im
mense white bow around it was a
beautiful red ribbon, while the
streamers were of the brightest blue.
On one side was a green bow, and on
the other a scarlet one, each of which
was fastened by an immense silver
plated pin. The idea of not wearinjj
this hat at her wedding was not to be
entertained for a moment.
While the women were discussing
the details of the dress and preparing
for the wedding supper, the men were
standing by the fence, each with one
foot resting easily on the lower rail
while they whittled at the posts and
talked of the times when they were
young and courted the maidens who
were now their wives.
The bridegroom had gone twenty
miles over the mountains to the coun-
IThe
ty seat after the necessary license.
squire who was to perform the
ceremony walked meditatively back
and forth in front of the house, look
ing quite uncomfortable in the dancing
boots which he had put on for the first
time since his last marriage service
ten years before.
'J he day was fast drawing to a close
when the bridegroom rode up with the
license. He was clothed in a doeskin
suit, to which he had evidently not yet
become accustomed. It was the only
suit of the kind that the village store
had and the creases showed that it had
long remained in stock before it was
sold. The coat was too large and the
pantaloons too short, but, as the mer
chant said, "that made no difference
it wouldn't be worn more than once or
tvice a year," and to Tom Tilford's
eyes they were the finest clothes he
had ever dreamed of owning. He dis
mounted and received tjie congratula
tions of the guests in advance of the
ceremony. He entered the cabin and
the bride blushingly retreated into the
impromptu dressing-room, which had
been made by hanging a sheet across
one corner.
"I knowed you'd git ketefced," "It
stands to reason that no man couldn't
go with Mandy 'thout gittin' stuck,"
"I think you'll make as peart a couple
as was ever hitched," and other rough
but well-meant expressions greeted
him as he entered.
The bride's mother acted as hostess,
and in the midst of her cooking would
run, with flour still on her hands, to
bid her guests a hearty welcome as
they entered. The cabin consisted of
only one room and a loft, while a shed
attached to the room served as a kitch
en. The floor was of puncheons, and
lime had been placed in the cracks
and packed tight with a maul for the
dancers. An old man stood in one
corner with a violin. He was to fur
nish the music, as he had done at
every wedding in that region for many
years. The women, on entering, ar
ranged themselves aronnd the room
the men, when the first greetings were
over, would repair to the front fence.
When supper was ready all gathered
about the table, but ate sparingly, for
the hostess gave the caution: "Don't
yer go to eatin' too much, for the big
supper is a-comin' not as I keer fer
the things, but I don't want yer to spile
the big supper." After the meal the
dishes were cleared away and the wed
ding was announced. The 'squire
placed a Bible and a copy of the Re
vised Statutes on the table, and said
"This 'ere court" will come to order.
Tom Tilford, Stan' up. Mandy Lowell
whair air ye? The bride appeared
from the dressing-room retreat re
splendent with her hat, the objections
to which she had overborne. She
blushingly walked up to the side of her
lover and seized his left hand in her
right "See hyar, that won't do,"
said the 'squire. "You must jine right
hands fer marriages left hands is good
only for divorces, and ye don't want to
be divorced yit," and he chuckled at
his wit "Now, both on you jine right
hands that's right," he added, as they
complied with his directions. "Now
let loose and hold up her right hands
and kiss the Bible." This was done.
"Tom Tillford, do you solemnly
swar to take this yar woman, 'Mandy
Lowell, as yer lawful wedded wife, to
have and to hold, to love and to
cherish, until death do you part, and
with worldly goods dower her accord
ing to stattoos made and pervided? Say
•I do.'"
"I do," Tom responded.
"Now, 'Mandy Lowell, do you
solemnly swar to take this man fer yer
lawful wedded husband till death do
you part and to love him and take keer
of him and obey him according
to scripter and statoots? Say 'I do.'
She blushingly faltered her assent
"Then, by the power vested in me
as justice of the peace I declare you
Mr. and Mrs. Lowell—»I mean Mr. and
Mrs. Tillford—and what God and I, aa
justice of the peace, elected. ..ty. (ho.
honest voters of the county, has put to
gether let no man put asunder ef he
doesn't want to get licked by the hull
settlement. I wiil now kiss the bride
accordin' to good old custom."
Losses b7 Forest Fires.
At a meeting of the American Lum
bermen's Association, held in Chicago
a few years ago, the statement was
made that more pine and other valua
ble timber trees were annually destroy
ed by forest fires than were cut for the
purpose of converting them into lumber.
It was also reported that forest fires
were increasing in number and de
structiveness, though fires in towns
were decreasing. Every large town
now has a fire department, costly ap
paratus, a supply of water on every
street, and arrangements for giving an
alarm in case a fire breaks out In
the timbered portions of the country no
provisions are made for extinguishing
fires. The nearest town that contains
a fire engine is generally many miles
away. Railroads, which are the cause
of many forest fires, do not bring in
engines and men for the purpose of
putting them out The few people
who live near where a forest fire oc
curs have all they can do in saving
their own buildings and crops. In
several cases that have occurred dur
ing the past few years the settlers near
forests have lost their own lives while
attempting to save their property.
The causes of the recent great in
crease of forest fires are numerous.
Railroads penetrate almost every great
pine forest that remains and steam
boats navigate the largo streams that
run through them. The engines aro
constantly throwing off sparks, any
of which is capable of starting a fire
in resinous boughs if they are dry.
Steam sawmills cause many forest fires.
A still larger number are caused by
hunters, amateur fishermen and tour
ists. They build fires for the purpose
of cooking their came and ordinarily
go away and leave them burning. A
lire may slumbar for a week in a log
or stump and burst into a flame as
soon as a brisk wind occurs. It is al
most impossible, even with trained
men, good apparatus and a liberal
supply of water, to prevent the spread
of a fire in a forest of resinous trees.
The ground is covered with material
that will burn as readily as timber.
When heated it gives off volatile oils
that will burn in the air. A fire, once
started, will produco sparks which
will be carried long distances and bo
the means of producing flames in fifty
places. A great fire always produces
a current of air which carries the flamo
to more fuel.
The losses occasioned by forest fires
are not confined to valuable timber.
They destroy all the young and grow
ing trees and the tree seeds that are
on the ground. In a dozen counties in
Michigan forest fires have ruined the
soil in large districts. They consumed
all the carbon and nitrogen they con
tained, and left nothing but mineral
substances. They reduced tho coun
try to the condition of a desert Cen
turies must pass before the processes
that nature employs to render barren
land fertile can accomplish the work
of restoration.
The government of tho United
States is almost the only one in the
civilized world that has not instituted
measures to prevent the occurrence of
fires in forests and to stop their spread
ing if they occur. In France, Ger
many, Spain and Italy persons who
fell trees on their own land are oblig
ed to remove all the branches, so they
will not cause fires. They are also
obliged to clear wide openings, that
will prevent the spread of fires, and
will afford a way for engines to pass.
The forests in some of these countries
are annually inspected by officials to
determine if they lire dangerous.
Forest inspectors there perform the
duties assigned to building inspectors
in most cities in this country. The
province of Toronto, Canada, has
adopted measures that have resulted
in putting an end to the destructive
forest fires that were once of so fre
quent occurrence there. The commis
sioner of forestry establishes rules
that must be observed by the owners
of wood land. They are not allowed
to leave the branches of the trees they
cut on the ground or to permit the
building of fires in a forest—Chicago
Herald.
Marriage in Madagascar.
When a father in Madagascar crets a
notion that his daughter ought to mar
ry he puts a rope around her neck and
leads her forth, and the first young
man he offers her to has got to take
her or pay a forfeit. The father thus
saves the expense of light and fuel in
cident to two years' courtship, and the
young man also saves on opera tickets
and ice-cream. But the spectacle of
young men darting up alleys and
climbing over back fences when a
ftaher starts out leading his daughter
with a rope around her neck must be a
very common one in Madagascar.—

Commonness of Adventures.
There is not, perhaps, among the
multitudes of all conditions that swarm
upon the earth a single man who does
not, at one time or other, summon the
attention of his friends to the casual
ties of his adventures and the vicissi
tudes of his fortune—casualties and
vicissitudes that happen alike in lives
uniform and in lives diversified—to
the commander of armies and to tho
writer at a desk—to the sailor who re
signs himself to the wind and water,

ney is to the market

COOPER'S MECE.
'Philip,1* said old John Briggs to
his son, "you aro twenty-eight years
old to-d.%."
"So the fami\y record says, father,"
responded the elegant young gentle
man addressed, "I am disposed to
place implicit reliance upon it"
"You have done nothing since you
left college but kill time."
"It, is only retaliation in advance,
sir. Some day or other the old chap
with the scalp lock and scythe will kill
me."
"You are too flippant Since your
Aunt Priscilla left you $5,000 a year
you have done nothing but spend the
money. Your iucorne ought to be
enough for a single man, but you draw
on me too."
"I'll try to draw on you less, sir."
"It is not that, Philip. You are
quite welcome to a check now and
then, for 1 know that you neither game
nor revel, and I
don't mind your horses,
your club, your natural history craze,
nor your luxurious tastes. But still
you spend more money and get less for
it than most young men of your age
have too much, in fact."
"I don't find it too much, sir. In fact,
I was thinking what a graceful thing
it would be if you were to double it, a
a mere trifle to a gentleman of your
me ins. I have to use the most pitiful
economy, I assure you."
"Oh, that's it, eh? Well, there is a
mode to increase it very much. You
heard me speak of Philander Spriggs
of New York?"
"Money lender and skinflint? I have
heard of him."
"Nonsense, Philip. He is quite
worthy as well as a very wealthy man
and if he prefers to invest ready mon
ey in short loans, what of that? I lend
my money, or some of it, sometimes.1'
"But not a cent per cent'1
"No matter. I don't propose that
you shall borrow of him. He has an
only child, a daughter, who will inher
it all his vast property, just as you
will mine."
"Does he shave notes, father?"
Phil, be kind enough not to indulge
in chaff. I have seen her and talked
with licr. She is young, handsome
well educated and has good taste, a
society gentlewoman with domestic
tastes."
"Well, father, you aro not so old,
and since you admire her so much, I
see no reason why—"
"Stop your nonsense and listen.
Spriggs and I had a talk over it when
I was in New York, and we concluded
that if you two come together, to chip
in equally and settle a half-million on
you on your wedding day. With
what you have you'll do well enough
for a while."
"But," demurred Philip, "I don't
like Spriggs for a father-in-law."
"Stuff! You don't marry Spriggs."
And the name. Just thnik of it!
Spr-r-iggs!"
"What of that? With marriage the
name is changed. 1 don't think she'll
gain much by it Spriggs—Briggs.
Six of one and a half-dozen of the
other."
"I'd like to oblige you, father. I
suppose I must marry some day but it
will be some one I love und then,
Philadelphia like, I insist on a woman
of good family."
"Some one you love! How the deuce
do you know you'll not love her till you
see her? Good family! Of course
you're entitled to that The peerage
of England is full of Viscount Briggses.
The Briggses are found in 1he Alman
ach von Gotha among the
erlaucht
families. Your grandfather made $300,
000 in hides and tallow, and if he had
not invested it in real estate that
multiplied itself more than ten-fold be
fore he died, I should have been in the
same business to-day. and you in tho
counting-room or warehouse. Family,
indeed! You're a foolish boy, Philip,
and your aunt's legacy has ruined
you."
"I wish, sir, there were a half-dozen
more old aunts to continue my ruin in
the same way. It is of no use getting
angry, father. You can't keep it up
I'll take to anything you say—law,
physic or divinity sell my horses, drop
my club, read by the cubic foot, but to
marry—excuse me."
"See here, Phil," exclaimed the
father, who by this time was at white
heat "you never knew me to break
my word, I merely ask you to marry
for your own good. I point out a wife
in every way suitable to you. Marry
to please me, and I will not only
start you fairly in life now, but leave
you all I have when I am gone. Marry
to suit some foolish fancy of your own,
and I'll—yes, I'll found an asylum for
idiots. Now you understand me."
And Briggs marched off. leaving his
son to his meditations.
"If I stay here," said Philip to him
self, "fatherand I will quarrel. Better
give the dear old gentleman a chance
to cool off. 1'U ruralize a little."
That afternoon Philip packed a port
manteau, and with a fishing-rod and
mineral hammer started off to Mont
gomery county, where an old college
mate of his had married and settled,
nnd whom he had long promised to
visit When he arrived there he learned
that Boudinotand his wife had gone to
Long Branch for the season, and their
servants with them, the house being in
charge of a care taker. Philip heard
of good fishing in a stream four miles
off, and concluded to try it. He fov.nd
lodgings at a farmhouse near the place,
owned by a man named Seth Cooper.
His quarters are quite comfortable.
The house was an old stone building of
ante-Revolutionary erection and was
roomy. He was assigned a chamber
upstairs, looking out on a trimly kept
garden, in which old-fashioned flowers
and pot-herbs were grown side by side,
and which sent a pleasant fragrance
through the open window. The room
itself was adorned with pictures and
knick-knacks, showing feminine taste,
and the bedstead was furnished with
a hair mattress, and not the bag of
feathers of the vicinage.
"Decidedly," said Philip to himself
"there is another female on the
premises, something younger and pos
sibly fairer -than the substantial
Dame Cooper, and with some refined
taste."
But neither that day nor that week
did he see any woman other than Mrs.
Cooper or the hired girl. However, the
cooking was good the country air and
his walks round about pave him an ap
petite, and he was content He fished
the stream closely, or rambled here
and there, hammer in hand and the bag
at side, or leaned over fences and
talked with the farmers about "crops"
and the weather.
In a week's time thej thing grew
monotonous. The., fish were not al
ways inclined to bite, good specimens
in quarries and in situ grew scarcer,
and his stock of talk on farming was
nearly exhausted. He began to think
of going to the Branch and hunting up
Boudinot. As he sat upon the veran
dah one afternoon debating the mat
ter, a wagon was driven up the lane
and stopped at the door. Lightly out
stepped a young woman in a neat trav
eling dress, and tho driver followed
her with a large trunk, under which
he staggered, burly as he was. Mrs.
Cooper came from the kitchen and ex
claimed, "Why, it's Gwenny, I de
clare!"
"You dear old Aunty Ruth!" said
the newcomer, hugging and kissing
the farmer's wife. "I came to have a
good time for a month."
"And so j'ou shall, my dear," was
the hearty reply.
Phillip took an ocular inventory of
the looks, dress and manner of the
newcomer as he took off his hat "A
sweet face and graceful figure, and
presentable anywhere," was his inter
nal comment "Here's luck. I ehall
not visit the Branch yet."
"You have a boarder, aunty," said
the girl when upstairs with Mrs.
Cooper.
"Yes! He's a Mr. Bee," said the
other. "It don't look as if he had any
call to work for his living, judging by
his white har.ds and his fix-ups, and
he's plenty of money."
"Bee! Then ho isn't a busy bee.
But he's good looking if he be agree
able, he'll do for a walking stick.
Mrs. Cooper's mistake as to Philip
was natural enough. When she had
asked his name on his coming, he had
said, in his airy way, "Philip B., at
your service," and she had taken the
sound of the initial for his surname.
After she had called him Mr. Bee
several times, Philip saw the blunder,
smiled at it, and as the naval officers
say, "made it so" and when Gwenny
came to tho table she was introduced,
"Miss Gwenny, Mr. Bee." As she was
the niece, ho concluded her name to
be Cooper, but as the farmer addrescd
her as Miss wenny, and the farmer's
wife as Gwenny, Philip, chose the
more respectful of the two.
As Philip was a gallant young gen
tleman. and as the young lady was
charming an manner, he naturally paid
her much attention. When a young
man and young woman are thrown to
gether under such circumstances, it is
not unusual for a flirtation to follow.
It is generally a foregone conclu
sion.
Philip soon learned that "Gwenny"
was the diminutive of Gwenllian. and
not of the more stilted Gwendoline,
which interested him. Philip's mother
had been a Powell, with Welsh blood
in her veins, and bore the same name.
This latter Gwenllian was a mystery
to him. For the niece of a rather
coarse fanner, for Cooper, though a
worthy man, was the reverse of refined,
she displayed unquestionably gentle
manners. Then she showed a fair
knowledge of any subject touched upon
in conversation.
'What was she. a teacher? She had
not,the look nor the way of the school
ma'am. A governess? Possibly. If
so, in a good family. But her belong
ings were not of the second-hand kind.
Philip had a keen eye for female ap
parel. Her lace was of the rarest her
gloves were perfect and of the newest
her dresses were pretty in material and
well-fitting, though quiet in tone and
though she displayed little in the way
of jefrelry, the stone that sparkled on
tho head of a lace pin was unmistak
ably a diamond. She had been well
cultured, and every word and action
showed a purity that fitted her name.
On the other hand, Philip was as
much a mystery to the young girl. He
was a gentleman beyond doubt But
what was he doing there, a man of
culture, refinement and aesthetic tastes,
in that farmhouse? He had said noth
ing of the Boudi riots, which would have
explained it With a little affectation
of cynicism, which did not ill become
him, the man was as clear as water,
frank as air. But why did he loiter
there with no apparent purpose? The
girl did not at first deem she was the
attraction, but it came to her after five
weeks, and she grew shy, and her shy
ness for the last week of her stay in
fected Philip, who became shy, too,
and lost all ease. At length she an
nounced to Mrs. Cooper that she had
to return home, and that her father,
who was in Philadelphia, visiting a
friend there, would come for her on
the following day, and hi9 friend with
him. Phillip heard this with a depres
sion that told him he had met his fate,
and that it lay in the power of this
girl to make him happy or miserable
For life.
All the night that followed, Philip
lay and tossed restlessly. He could
not sleep. He felt that his father would
be as good as his word, byt he would
win a wife then or never. Near morn
ing he arose, dressed, and sat at the
window, .until the sun showed itself.
Then he slipped out of the house and
strolled toward a glen a few yards off,
intending to remain out until he heard
the breakfast bell. It had been a fav
orite haunt of the two, and yet for the
last few days both had avoided it. He
made his way to a mossy rock which
formed a sort of rustic seat and there
he saw Gwenny.
"Miss Gwenllian," he exclaimed.
She rose with a rather embarrassed
air. "I rested badly last night, Mr.
Bee, and I came out at daybreak.
iiave been here ever since. The mov
ing air Beems to refresh me."
"I have the same experience," hs
said. "I have rested badly, or rathei
have not rested at all. I—"
She looked up inquiringly, and at
something she read in his eyes, dropped
her own, while a flush overspread hci
face and neck.
"Gwenny!" ho said desperately, and
took her hand. The fingers trembled
in his,but were not withdrawn. "Gwen
ny," he said, "we are to part to-day.
Do you know that I love you dearly?"
"Do you, Philip?" she murmured,
but did not look up.
"Gwenny," he said, "I have been
sailing under false colors, but inno
cently enough. I have a way among
my gentlemen friends of using my ini
tials, and so I am called among them
P. B., or Mr. B. When your aunt
asked my name, I said -Mr. B.,' and I
did not care to undcceive her but I de
sire no concealment from you, unless
you do not care for me. Then we will
part as we met but I shall be a changed
man."
He waited for a reply. There was
a slight tightening of her fingers on
his as she half whispered:
"You must know that I care for you,
Philip."
"Now," said the exultant Philip,
"you must let me speak to your father
to-day."
"I fear you may find him rather ob
stinate," she said. "He sets an un
due store by his daughter."
"I can satisfy him of my position in
society and that I am able to maintain
you. I have means of my own, and
have—well, I might say had, great ex
pectations but my father, who is sev
eral times a millionaire, has taken it
into his head to fit me with a wife. I
prefer to choose one for myself. If
you will bo content to share what I
have, Philip Briggs does not care for
more."
"Briggs—Philips!" cried Gwenny,
releasing herself from his grasp and
looking wonderingly. "Is your father'.'
name John?"
"Yes."
"And he lives in Philadelphia?"
"Yes."
Gwenny burst into a peal of silvery
laughter. "Do not feel vexed, Philip,"
she said at length. I am only laugh
ing at the similarity of our positions.
My father chose a husband for me in
the same way. and it was to escape
discussion of the matter that I took
these few weeks rustication. Mrs.
Cooper is my old nurse, nnd I have
callcd her 'aunty' from the time I
could toddle around. She was married
from our house. Her husband had very
little money and father bought this
farm and stocked it But, oh! think
Philip dear, how your father and mine
will chuckle! You are Philip Briggs,
and I—I am Gwenllian Spriggs."—

Belinda was a maiden
Divinely picturesque
As any child of "Aidenn"
(See Poc in "Tales Grotesque"):
Her manners were so gentle,
Her voice was music sweet,
And I crew sentimental
When first we chanced to meet
We danced a waltz together.
And oil, the way she danced I
Each little foot a feather
Across the carpet glanced.
We ogled o'er the ices,
Until my heart said "This
Must be what Paradise is—
Superlatively bliss."
In all our conversation
We cordially agreed
Her highest commendation
Was always, "Yes, indeed!"
I criticised, I queried—
It grieves me to confess,
I actually grew wearied
With "Yes" and "Yes, Oh. Yes!"
But girls that are so stupid
Oft have a pretty face
They get the help of Cupid,
And win us by their grace.
Thoueht I, since she's so willing:,
Forever to agree,
Some day, I'll beta shilling,
She'll answer "Yes" to me.
So at the beach last summer.
Beneath the moonlight clear
I sought to capture from her
That affirmation dear
But her vocabulary—
'Twas limited, and so,
Her language just to vary,
She tenderly said "No!"

Whether "a lie well told and Etuck
to afterward is as good as the truth"
was debated at a dinner table where a
Lcwistown (Me.) Journal man was sit
ting one day this week, and it brought
out the following story from a rather
dyspeptic-looking man who had eaten
very sparingly: "I used to live up in
the country," said he. "One of my
neighbors, an unlucky, unthrifty sort
of a man, killed a pig one day with the
aid of a local butcher, and after the
killing he said to the butcher: 'By
jinks, Sam, I hate to cut up that pig.'
•Why?' ''Cause you see I'm owin'
most every body around here a piece
of pork, nnd if I cut up the pig I'll
have to give most of him away.1 'I
tell you what to do,' said the butcher.
'What's that?' 'I'd have the pig hung
up out doors till twelve o'clock at
night, then take him in and give out
the next morning that he's been stol
en.' 'By jinks, I'll do it.' It was a
wonderfully fine plan, the farmer
thought, and he left the pig hanging
out, as the butcher suggested. About
eleven o'clock the butcher himself
came along and loaded the pork into
his team, it was not there when the
farmer went out after it. The next
day, with a long face, he accosted the
butcher in a hoarse whisper. 'I say,
Sam, somebody did really steal that
pig. 'That's right,' said the butcher,
nudging him and winking wickedly at
the same time. 'But, by jinks, the pig
