We hevn't suspended, nor failed, nor closed bnr doors, nor nnthin, for the simple reason that the bank was constructed on an ijee that made failiu impossible, and the closing uv doors onnece?arv Ez we don't bev to redeem, wat sheT we fail for? Ez we don't purpose to pay nothin. wat bhel we close our doors for? There ain't nothin blde-hnnnd about this bank. The people is welcome to come in and discuss finance, and put tbeir feet cpon the benches, and spit tobacco joose on the floor, jest ez friendly ez they choose, and thev may do it ez long ez they choose. No, the ODllmited Trust and Con fidence Company aint failed, but its kinder petered out, ez it were. It is expirin of dryrot Its notes, wich is its blood, amt bevm anv cirkelashen. The people dont take em with that cheerfulness wich is necessary to a proper bankin bizness. Leg'islashen dont fetch em. The ordinance wich made death the penalty for refoosin our ishoos only worked so far ez takin em fur taxes. The corpora shen did take em for taxes in pur sooance ut tbeir own legislashen, and here wuz where the trouble be gun: The taxes wuz levied on a greenback basis, and the entire levy amounted to $3,000. Well, the taxes, for the first lime in the history uv the Corner.,, wuz all pade in fall and with great promptness. A more prompter wt uv tax-payers I never seed. Tha Treasurer bed $3,000 uv our ishoos, when it wuz necessary to buv a plow and four spades to do some work on tbe roads. In vane he tried to get eoi. The dealers at home, knowin wat currency he hed to pay in, suddeuly got out ur plows and spades, and when he went to Loois ville it took $1,000 uv his currency to pay bis fare, and be offered the hardware dealer the other $7,000 for tbe implements he wanted, but it wouldn't go. Ho hed to come back w thoat em. Then he come and demanded some currency uv as wich he cood yoose, wich uv course, we hedn't got none, and he became an opponent uv our system. Two shoemakers, each with $70, 000 uv our money, coodent buy a side of sole leather to continyoo their biznes ftith. and had to stop our railroads and turnpike hed to hev iron and nales and rich things or we couldent gi on; so- all tbe laborers Led to be discharged, wich made a desprit pi pulaahen all howlin agin us. Uut tha wust wuz yet to come. We cood hev weathered all this, but ala.-! Rascom Failed! This wuz tie finishin blow the great ftajrgercr from wich the Cor ners cood not possibly recover. Rabcom made a manly Gte, and I mut say did all that he cood to stand up for us. lie raised the price uv drinks to $2 per drink, and w hen he saw his barls rapidly failin, he tried to keep the Comers agoin by waterin his likker, just ez we hed watered the currency. But those expedients didn't work. The higher the price he put on bis likkers the more tbe people seemed to want to drink uv it. It seemed to be a delite to em to pay out the money el they got anything whatever for it. But they woodent do wot Bascoia most desired that is to say they woodent stand his watered whit-ky They said to him "Ef 2 aint enurT, charge $l Its all wun to as. Set em np agin." And tbe bar-room full wood step up and take suthin, and the man who asked em wood throw down on the bar a peck ot oar Currency and tell Bascom to help himself. Bascom came to as and begged that e sbood let him hev suthin that he cood yoose to re-stork his bar. He said the deelers in Locisrille latTed in his face when he offered em our money for likker, and he had but two barls left Ana mem two barls wuz vizibly shriDkin every mirit. It seemed ez though the populis got insane for likker at the very time that we didn't vant em to hev it. For the fast time in my life I wanted tbe Corners to be ttmprit, for every drap drawd from the barls brought oar bank that much neerer its end. I sot opposite Bas com 's and saw the crowd go in. with a sinkia sensasben that wuz akin to death. Drink by drink it went, and ez ef they coodeut egeshaust it fast enuff Ly the single drink they got to eomia for it in tin dippers. "How does it hold out?" waz the message I sent him at 10 a. m. 1 he anser came prompt: "10:05 a. M. Wan barl untutcbed 20 gallons in the other and sinkin every minit "C." Then I sent this: "10:10 Fill her up with water. Keep Jefferson Davis a pouria ia. Hi ld the fort. N." And the anser came: "10-15.

I &et this note: . 'Time everything. Bust the spitrgot Bna" delay drawin. N.' Wich te did, thus keepin the wolves at bar f)r 811 hoar, while it was bein repaired. But whj horror the public buzum with the details uv this painful story? Tbe end wz inevitable. Drop by drop, drink bj drink, pint by pint that 1 kker wuz ebbin away, and each drop weakened the bank. The likker wnz our life-blood, and ez it flowed we wilted. Waterin tbe barl wuz merely a palliative and it waz withafeelin of relief that I saw George W. throw up his hands and exclaim: "It's all gone but gHuo, wich I shell keep for riv own use. id 8n gone, and I can't get another drop ia Looisville." And he dropt bis bead desponding ly on a pile uw over $13,000 uv our currency, wich he hadn't taken off the bar, and wept despondingly. "Why can't you git more?" de manded the excited populis. "Becoz I ain't got no money but this, and yoo coodent git a barl uv whi.-ky in i ocisville far a car-load uv it." I attempted to reason with the peo ple. I told them that one reason uv our wealth wuz that we hed it ia a cuirency that we coodent spend awav from home, thus keepia our capital among ourselves, but they re foosed to listen to me. They d d my bank thev d d rne. Thev went fur the bank, determined ef tber wuz anything there that could be tuned into likker, Ba.-ccm shocd hev it. It is onnecessary to remark tha: they didn't find anything. Acticpa- tin an oupleasantnis, we bed removed the valyoobles to a place uv safety. wich wuz the under side uv my bed at Deekin Pogram's. Then they demanded that the mon ey they held be redeemed into some thin they cood yoose, but uv course we declined to discuss the matter, re ferria them to tbe terms of the ishoo ez expressed on the note, ez well ez tbeir owe indorsement uv the skeem. But this didn't satisfy em. They delibera:ely brought out $675,000 uv tbe ishoos uv the various banks, and pilio it up on tbe street, set fire to it, dancin a demoniac dance around it. This amoosed me, for ot course I hed no earthly objecksbua to their reJeemin uv it ia that way, but when I seed em riggin ropes to the trees in the visinitv. I remarkt to my fellow officers: ''Gentlemen, your President hez pressrn bizuiz ia yjader forest!" and I got out ez rapidly ez my poor wasted lim3 would permir. I flatter myself that I made tollable time for a man of my age, whose strength is mostly in his s:arui.k. Indeed, when 1 turned and saw ten or a dozen uv the foremost men uv the Corners close behind me, and all shoutin, "Hang the d d theef!" no gentle gazelle that ever I heerd uv ever skimmed the plain ez I did. I did not cease runnin till I got into the middle uv the big swamp, ia a place I knowd wuz sekoor from era. Wat bekum ut the other Direckters I dn't know. The last fond look that I turned towards the Bank I saw Issaker Gavett and Dekin Fog ram struglia in the hands nv the mob, wich wuz playfully farcin em to sit down on a burnin pile ar their own currency. I am in a deserted swamp wich wuz yoosed by runaway niggers ia the old times, and am fed by a nig ger farmer who hez not heered uv the kollapse, and consequently takes his pay in the Onlimited. Ef the noose ever gets to him nv the reel condishnn ut things, and be shets off supplies or reveels my whereabouts, I am a lost man. Wat changes there is ia life! A week ago a suckcessful Snacseer and the pet uv the popnlis the Savior uv the Corners? To-day a hunted fugi tive livin oh corn hoe-cakes fur nished by a nigger! One needs to be a filosofer.

Stiil there was no response. There his audience still sat, upright, unmoved as so many gate po3ts. Then he con cluded he would try the virtue of his funny stories, and told a string of bis funny stories, and told a string of them as only Tom Corwin could tell a story. Selecting a particularly dig nified old fellow ia front of biro, he j directed his budgpt of side splitting yarns at him, but ne'er a smile broke from his lips or those of any one pre sent. Then be went to making faces at them the funniest faces that ever a man made, faces ?ucb as only Tom Corwin could make. Still not a ,;!- . .1 .i.4 ! ,1 . v.

Finally Mr. j Corwin sat down disgusted, Then a tall, lank, cadaverous look ing individual, sitting off in one cor ner of the room, slowly rose to his feet, and, clearing, his throat very leisurely, said: "Mr. Chairman, m view of the fact that we have had the great Mr. Corwine here with ns to day greatly to our edification, I therefore move you, sir, tLat we now proceed to g;ve Mr. Corwine three cheers. So say ing, he sat down. Then another lank, cadaverous iu dividaal, on th1 other side of the room, rose to his feet slowly as the other, and said: "Mr. Chairman, I second that mo tion." And be sat down. Then the chairman with due so lemnity assumed a perpendicular to put the question. "Fellow citizens," said he, "it has been moved and duly seconded that this town meeting pro ceed to give thee cheera to the Hon orable Mr. Corwine for the able and masterly address he had delivered in our presence to-day. All who are in favor of that motion will signify the same by sayinr aye." A dozen or more voted in the affirmative. "Those of a contrary mind will say no." There were none. "The motion is adopted." Then he sat down, and silence again reigned. Presently a little, dried np, weazen faced old man in the back part of the hall got cp, and in a cracked voice called out, "Mr. Chairman, hooray for Mr. Corwine!" And he took bis seat. And then the dignified party in the middle of the audience, at whom tbe jokes had been directed, rose in his seat, cleared out his throat, and, in dignified tones, said: "Mr Chair man, hooray for the great Mr. Cor wine," and sat down again. Finally, an old gray haired veter an, who sat np in the amen corner, got on his legs, and, leaning on his cane, called oat, in the querulous voice of ae, "Mr. Chairman, hooray for Mr. Corwine." Tbe three cheers having been thus given for the speaker, the meeting ad journed with due solemnity, and Cor win went to bis room at tbe notel, vowing that he'd never make anoth er speech in the Reserve. And he did'nt. "Still," said he, "I never blamed them much. That was their way of showing enthusiasm. They'd never bad any missionary among them." Breaklwa; Daws,.

There was real sorrow in Robert Franklin's voice and eyes as he spoke, and the lady who listened drew her merry face into dolorous puckers to suit tbe occasion.

"I have not dared to tell him. Cowardly, is it not? But he is my only relative, and I loved him dear ly. It is not because he owns tbe farm and can leave a little monev, Daisy."

Ob, how can I let you go for two long months!" For Robert Franklin bad under taken to go in person to see about some Western lands in whih bis uncle had invested, and which threat ened to involve him in loss. Dai?j could not well take the long journey, and besides, Daisy had other schemes in her wise little head. Loving Rob ert well, she resolved to remove the only shadow from his life the reso lute opposition of his uncle to a fine lady wife. Robert Franklin had been gone from tbe farm three days when his ancle James, yielding most reluctant ly to the pangs of his old enemy, chronic rheumatism, told Jane, bis servant, that he mu?t remain in his room. The old woman answered promptly: "If yoa are going to be laid up, Mr Franklin, I must have aome heln. I'm irettinsr ton nl.I too r o - o - . anl trotting up and down stairs isl't easy as it was twenty years 5V - "Uut wh will come Jane? Girls are not plenty here, as you know I ve a niece, sir, would come to me, though she'd never live out." "Send lor ber then," and oh rub my leg, will you?" Late in the aftei noon, a little bustle below stairs told the invalid of tbe arrival of the niece. She came with one trunk, in a wagon, from the rail ay station, and standing in the wide, dreary looking kitchen, looked a picture o: beaitby beauty. Soft brown curls gathered in a rich knot left little crinkey ring lets on ber forehead and carressing the round white throat ; large brown eyes lighted a sweet fair face, and the neat dress of blue woolen cover- ed a dainty figure. "Will yoa go np stairs, Miss ?" Jane hesitated. "Margaret !" said the new comer ; "don't call your niece Miss, whaterer yoa do. My name is Margaret. Has Mr. Franklin had his supper?" "Not yet. There's his dinner, you see, scarcely tasted." Margaret looked at the big tray, the blue plate with food heaped upon it, the two pronged fork and half soiled napkin, and did not wonder at the neglected food. "Show me where the things are and I will get the supper," she said. Jane led her from closet to closet. In one was a set of gilt edged china, some fine table linen, table silver, and some glass. "Those were bought thirty years ago," whispered Jane, "when Mr. Franklin expected to be married. She died and they have never been used " With her pretty face saddened by the hidden tragedy of tbor lew words, Margaret took a small tray from the shelf, and covered wiih a showy napkin, selected what she wanted from the closet, and went again to the kitchen. j James Franklin, wearv with the effort to bold a book in bis aching hands, was now silting in a deep arm chair, musin?, when Mariraret tapped at the door. "Come in!" But be started as she obeyed. Such a sweet, bright face was new in tbe dismal old farm boose, strong ly in contrast with the bare, meagre room and desolate air surrounding her. "I have brought your supper," she said, drawing a little table near the arm chair, and covering with a white cloth. Then, going to the door, she entered again with a tray. Upon a wnite cnioa aisn was nan a c nit li en delicately browned, a potato roas ted in the ashes, and a slice of but tered toast: and beides this, a deli cate cop full ef fragrant tea. "You must not scold if I have anything- wrong-" said a clear, sweet voice, ' becaose aant Jane is too busy to look after me. I cleaned the fork and spoon, for stiver gets dreadfully black 7 tben more teoaeny as sne marked the painful effort to move the tortured fiaers ict me cut the chicken, sir." Orimlr wondermz. the old man suffered himself to be fed, finding aopetite as the well prepared food was eaten, and listening well pleaded to the cheery voice so unfamiliar to his loaely life. "Jaue," Margaret said, sitting down tbe tray in the kitchen again. "I don't wonder he is sick. No car pet, no curtains, that great hearse of abed, and nottiing pretty near mm." "It's all clean," said Jane. "Clean it was, but Oh! so doIefuL Cant we fix np a cosy room?" "There's room enough. Six oa that floor," said Jane, "and none used but tbe one Mr. Franklin's in, and Mr. Robert's the little one aext to it." "Well, well see, to-morrow. Can if I I have a maa to send to town waat anything?" "There s men enough. ill yoo sleep down here to-night, or in one of the rooms np stairs:" "Down here, in the next room to yoara." "It is now all readv. in m now and roaka Mr. Fraaklia comfort- aoie lor me nignt. "Comfortable!" Margaret aaid shivering-. But the next merning, after pat ting a temptiog breakfast beforw the invalid, Margaret selected the Tacant bedroom she meant to adorn for hia ose. It was large, with four win dows, light and cheerful, and well suited for her purpose. In the intervals of directing Jane, sending the man to town with ner or ders, and givin her own dainty touch to everything. Margaret Tiait ed tbe invalid, reading to him, chat ting with him and making tbe long hours fly by. It was late in the af ternoon when she came in to say: "Mr. Franklin, tbe room acrom the hall has a southern exposure, and I think you will find it more comfort. &l!e than this one. Will you try to get there if Acat Jane and I will help yoa?" "I'm very well here." "Bat you will be better there. riease come." So he yielded, bat once fairly in the room be could not repress a cry of amazement. Softly carpeted, white curtained, a bright firo track ing in tbe stove, a dainty sapper spread upon tbe table, tbe room was co.y and cheery enough to coax a smile irom the grimmest lips. Yet when James Franklin sank into the bright chintz covered easv chair and looked around him, everything look ed strangely familiar. That was the parlor carpet taken from the nerer opened room below; those were the parlor curtains freshly starched and ironed, and held back with knots of broad pink ribbon. The bed, bureau, wardrobe, chairs, all were bis own, polished till tbey shone again. The snowy bed linen, the white counter pane, the bureau covers wiih the'r knotted fringe were all a sister's work, stored away in chests since she died, long, long years ago. Even the chair wa part of some old cur tains he had tugged away in a long- forgotten corner of a closet "It is very comfortable, and yoa are a good thoughtful girl," he said, looking around with a keen spprecia tion of the added comfort, "I won der we never thought of using tnese things." "Now let me read the rest of our book to you. I have some new peri odicals ia my trunk if you will look a: them." Tbe days flew bT, cold weather strengthening, till Robert wrote he was coming home one chill January day. Margaret bad been busy for a fort night before in the lower part of the h ouse, but Mr. Franklin asked no questions. He had been very ill, bat was recovering so that he hoped to welcome Robert in the sittiog-room. How be shrank from returning to its dreariness anu sending Margaret away, he told no one till he held hi nephew's hand fast clasped in hia own. "I can never tell yoa, Robert," he said then, "what Margaret has been to me. No daughter could have tend ed me more patiently and faithfully, and when 1 eoald listen, she read to me and talked as pleasantly as if I were a companion to ber, instead of a grumpy old bachelor past sixty." "I am glad yoa have been well cared for," Robert said, turnin j his head lo hide a merry twinkle in his eye ; "yoa look very fine here." But when be carefully led the old man to the sitting room, both stood amazed. Was the handsomely car peted, cbeerefully furnished room the dreary old place in which tbey had been so contented ? While they wondered a new sound greeted them the tones of a piaao touched by skillful fingers, and a voice sweet and clear singing a song of praise. Throwing open a door to disclose a beactifully lurnished parlor, Robert saw also a little figure on the piano stool, clad in a shining black silk, with lace and pretty jewelry to adorn it. "Margaret!" Uncle James cried. But Robert said softly : "Margaret Franklin, Uncle James. Daisy, my wife ? " Tben she came forward with shin ing eyes. "I wanted to make yon love me for Robert's sake," she said ia a low, tender voice. "And for yierown,"he answered; "but I am bewildered, my dear. Where did these things come from ?" From my old home. They are all mine, and yoa will let them here, will yoa not. for oar new home?" she added slyly, slipping her hand into Robert's. "I don't want to take Robert from you. Uncle James, when be is ail you have to love, bnt if you will give me a place here, too, I will try to be a good daughter to you. ' "Give yoa a place here !" the old man cried ; "I think no greater grief coma come to me now, .Margaret, than the tkouithl of losina: yoa. G"d ever bless yoa, child ! forfew at your age would have cared to so kindly overcome so obstinate aa old uiiin's stupid prejudices." "Tbaokyou,"he whispered, touch ing her lips to his for the first time ; you have made me very happy. And as she presided over the care fully appointed table in a costly furn ished dining room Uncle James had used for spare harness and bags of tcraio, but which was transformed be yond recognition, there was no cloud on the brightness of tbe face of "Rob ert's wife."
