The faml i ly physician, refused to amputate the limb, as ' senicg that the operatiin would kill the patient on the spot. Dr. Davit KENNEDY, of Ron dout, N.

Mr. Shaw contrasted greatly with his surroundings his spotless cloth fitting so well his strong, manly figure, his clear-cut Grecian features.and dark wavy hair, thrown back with careless grace from his smooth brow. He was visiting one of tho?e wretched tenement houses used by the very poor, and before him was a forlorn group. A widow who had just buried her husband ; she had five helpless children the eldest six, the young est a Dursing baby, and a pair of twins among them. The rags and worse than all, the dirt of poverty was everywhere apparent. An expression of almost sublime pity rested on the countenance of the minister. The woman, with an apron thrown over her head, rocked herself to and fro, and wailed ou. her troubles. "I don't know what I am goir.g to do for myself and the liitle ones. Though my old man would have his drink.be didn't beat us, and brought enough home to keep body and soul together, but now I know we can't do nothing but starve and die !"' "Have you no friends '"asked Mr. Shaw in a low voice. "Some, but as bad and wuss off than us. Yes," she said, looking up with a graceful, bright expression, '"there is one Lord bless her! who has done a lot for me Miss Mehita ble Sanks. She sent medicine and the doctors to the old man, and guv me clothes and suthin' to eat; and many's the man, woman, ami child that blesses her for takin' care of 'em. Why, sir, she even leaves lit tle cards with stamps on 'em, and Joe Potter, who can write, sends 'em to her when we are in a very bad state." After assuring her of his sympa thy and that he would do what he could for her. the minister wended his way home. As he thought of those to whom he might appeal, a vision of a bright face haunted him, but while he lingered over the thought most tenderly, there was a shadow on his brow as if there was some blight jar that marred tbe har mony of his thoughts. Mr. Shaw was the rector of one of the wealthy churches of the city.and Mabelle Irfe was one of the parish ioners. Her face was Madonna-like in its tender curves and beauty, the large blue eyes with just a tinge of sadness, the perfect curve of the red lips, a faultless complexion, and blonde hair that was like a balo of light around the graceful head. But nri, when she talked it wab like a dunuper.i mist on a beautiful picture marring the tints that otherwise would have been perfect. Bright and witty, but a butterfly; such a devotee to society that one Ionized for the expression of a single serious thought that could leaven into something like common sense this personification of frivoliiv. With it alt, howfver, she was lovl and loveable to any one, and Mr. Shaw had long struggled aeainst an interest in her, the indulgence ol which be felt would be fattd to his future happiness and usefulness. Absorbed in these thoughts, he found himself in front of Mr. Lee's house, and obeying an impulserhe turned into the gate and was admit ted. As Miss Lee entered the narlor.he thought he had seldom seen a fairer vision, and was vexed to feel his heart throb more quickly, and thrill with a pleasure that he felt must be controlled. She greeted him with that easy grace which was one of her principal charms. 'Ah, Mr. Shaw! I am so glad to see you. 1 hod a real spell oi ennui this morning. This last novel is wretched, as both hero and heroine die in the most provoking way, and because of some overstrained idea of duty, and I was just wishing that some one would come in and I could have a cheerful little chat to dispel the gloomy impression." "Then I'm afraid, smilingly. "you will not like your present visi tor. 1 have not come in a very cheerful humor; and besides, I wish to ask you a favor. "A favor ! That is too lovely. Con sider it granted, even to tbe half of my kingdom. I am truly glad that vou wish to ask a favor of me, be cause I did not think your opinion of me was sufficiently good for such a thing. Do yon know," with a sud den drop of the eyes, "that you al ways make me leel as it I am doing something wrong?" "Do I ? Well, I shll give yon a golden opportunity now to redeem yourself. I have just been visiting some of those wretchedly poor fami lies in street, and I would like it so much if you could interest some ladies in their behalf visit tbem and relieve them:" A look of consternation over spread her pretty face as she ex claimed : "Oh indeed, you don't mean for Is ct ESTABLISHED 1827. SOMERSET, PA.. WEDNESDAY. me to go there? How could I ever stand it! I can't bear such places. Ask me almost anything else. The dreadful men and women the odor ! Ugh !" with a sbuddei, "Ask me! almost anything else." A look of keen disappointment drifted over Mr. Shaw's face. She suddenly brightened and said : I do intend to do something good next week. I have refused a Ger man," triumphantly, ""that I may attend the Charity Calico Ball to be given. You know all the dresses are fur the poor, so I shall do some good." ' "And what is your dress to be?'' asked Mr. Shaw, with rather an in describable mneciion in his voice. "The loveliest blue silesi with a flowered cretonne front," enthusias tically, "sleeveless waist, Medici col lar, shirred and very bouffant drap eries. It will be beautiful, and I know it will seem very nice to some poor waman who -never had anv- thins like it" " "Yes," he said in a tone quite sa turated with irony, "I don t doubt its usefulness; but don't you think you ought to add a few yards more of illussion to make some warm bodies for those who have no fires, and a few yards of ribbon to decor ale the little freezing arms?" "Now you are angry with me.Mr. Shaw," hesitatingly. "Don't think me utterly heartless ; but I can't go to street. It would really give me a little blue chill." "I could never consent to such a cruel thing as that," he said with au unpleasant smile. "I really feel that 1 owe you an apology for in truding such a disagreeoble subject, particularly after your nerves were shattered with vour novel. Good morniug," and he bowed himself out very abruptly with a strange little pain in his heart. He did not again allude to the subject to her, but found other la dies who interested themselves warmly in the work. Everywhere that he went in his charity rounds ho could see and 'eel the influence of Miss banks i good acts. She seemed to be an an-j gel of mercy, who never tired, and! who devoted ner entire time to charity. All that she did was mark ed by a particular good sense and a depth of thought and feeling th.it hecould not fail to admire. Still lie chanced never to meet her. One day, when entering the post-i office, he saw in advance of him the graceful figure of Mabelle Lee. She was unaware of his presence, and standing idly behind her, he fell as I if he had received nn electric shook a3 she asked : Is there anything for Miss Mehitable Sanks?" and then received and pocketed several pos tal cards. If he was astonished at the ques tion, he was still moresoatthe ef fect which his discovered presence produced on her. Her face and neck, even to the roots of her golden hair, were dyed in painful crimson, her eyes dilated, with an expression of consternation, but with a little haughty gesture of recognition, she hurried past him. Acting with an impulse, with a few hasty steps he soon overtook her. He was lost in a bewildered surprise. She was the last person with whom he would have connec ted Miss Sanks in any way, and her great agitation, as he walked beside her. increasing his surprise. A sudden bright suspicion ceas ed his heart to beat almost to suf focation. "Tell me, Miss Mabelle," he said, "what have you to do with Mit-s Sank's letters?" "I can't really understand, Mr. Shaw, what right you have to ask such a question. In all things spiritual I asknowledge yonr right, but in this instance vou forgot vour self." - "Tell me," he said, with enger, re- gardless,haste,are you Miss Sanks?"j A sudden burst of tears wai her; only answer, as she hastily pulled! down her veil and walked silently besides him. A calm of perfect joy descended upon him as he realized the truth, t He walked by her side until he: reached her home, and then, with- j out invitation, entered it with her. As they reached the parlor she j tossed aside her hat and stood be-1 fore him more like a discovered cul-j prit than the little saint she had ; proven to be. j There was a defiant sparkle inj her eyes as she turned her Hushed fare to him. He took both of her hands in his. "So, Mabelle, MaLelle." he mur mured, tenderly, "your heart is as beautiful as your fice, though you have veiled your goodness under an exterior of frivolity. This is not the general rule of humanity." - "But, Mr. Shaw, if it is a fault, it lies entirely at your door." "Have I anything to do with it?" in surprise. "I have been thinking fora long while that you were en tirely beyond my control." "Nevertheless. I have only been obeying yocr instructions." Don't yon remember you some time since preached against ostentatious chari ty : 'Let not they left hand know what thy right hand doeth.' I thought there was a world of truth and force in it, and I have only practiced what you preached. And now, Mr. Shaw," she said, with a demure glance at him, "if you are done with my hands I will not trouble von to hold them anv lon ger." "No," he said gravely ; I do not wish to return them. Mabelle ! Ma belle !" quickly and tenderly, "give me the privilege cf holding them always. Won't you, darling ?" She caught them quickly away. "No, no," with a low laugh ; it is Miss Sanks with whom you have fallen in love, for Mabelle Lee has only had your toleration." "Ah," he said, "that's when I thought you were a butterfly. ' Now that I know you to be a saint, I beg you to share your grace with me and help me in aligned things. I am willing to take you or Miss Sanks or, in defiance of tbe law of the land, I will take yon both." She hesitated ; then with a lovely NOVEMBER 18, IS85. blush and smile, she laid her hands in his. "One for Miss Sanks one for my self." - He drew her near to him, and felt I that one sermon at leajt had been : cast upon the waters, which had re j turned to him after many days. General Grant and the Policeman. Only once since the defeat of the Old Guard at Chicago did General Grant meet the enemy face to face and get utterly routed. That tme the enemy was a New York police man. It was on the morning two years ago next winter when the Ma sonic Temple was on fire. There I were great crowds on Sixth avenue and in Twenty-third street, and Cap tain Williams' men had formed fire lines across the street on either side of the Temple, to eive thefiretnen a chance to work unhindered. The crowd gave them plenty to do, and when a short, chunky man, with a cigar set firmly between his teeth, and the huge collar of his top coat reaching above his ear9, tried, look ins neither to the right nor to the left, to hustle past one of the police men that guarded the Sixth avenue approach, he was seized and uncere moniously bounced off the sidewalk. The officer didn't prod him with his club as he probably had a good mind to do, but as he got a fair grip ou the collar of that coat, and yank ed its owner into the street, he gave him eonce wholesome advice, unask ed, on the subject of blockade run ning. Tho man in the overcoat an swered never a word, but jogged across the street, both hands thrust into his side pockets and the cigar set with just a shade of detimce in hi firm mouth, and tried to pass by Booth's theatre. But here another policeman, who had seen him bounced across the street, got his eye upon him and was reaching fir the lall collar, when he was dumbfound ed by seeing his roundsman straight en up and salute in military style: "This wav, General! Make room there for ' General Grant !" The crowd and the bluecoats made room at once, and the General, with a nod of recognition, jogged on his way to ward Fifth avenue, in the slush ami enow, looking neither right or left, but followed by a hundred eyes, among them the policeman's, who silently thanked his stars for his nar row escape from giving the ex-Pres-idenl a tate of his club as a blockade runner.

They were epellin', and I thought spelled quite exceedingly. Then came Nancy's turn to say her less on. She said it very spry. I was shot! and determined she should leave that school. I have heerd that grammar was an uncommonly fine study, but I don't want any more grammar in my house. The .'esson which Nancy sed was nothin' but the foolisbest kind uv talk, the ridiclts love talk you ever seed. She got up, and the first word she said, was "Hove." I looked rite at her for doin' so improper, but she went rite on, and sed : "Thou lovest, he loves," and I reckon you never heard such a rig germyrole in your life love, love, love, and nuthin' but love. She sed one time, " I did love." Stz I, " Who did you love?" Then the scholars laffed. but I wasn t to be put off, and I sed : . "Who did you love Nancy? I want to know who did you love?" The schoolmaster, Mr. M'Quillis ter, put in, and sed he would ex plain when Nancy had finished the lesson. This sorter pacified me, and Nancy went on with awful love talk. It got wus and wus, every word. She said, " I might, could, or would love." I stopped her again, and sed I reckon 1 would see about that, and told her to walk out of that house. The schoolmaster tried to interfere, but I wouldn't let him say a word. He sed I wa3 a fool, and I knocked him down and made bim holler in short order. I taukt the strate thing to him. I told him Ide show him how hede learn my darter grammar Irith Fireride. An Architect's Opinion.

What Tilden'a Experience Coat Him Job a R Mcsjean'a Wrath. Washington. Nov. 14 It is said that a great deal of money wa spent durine the late campaign in Mary land. Senator Gorman is reported to have spent SoOAXX) of his own and his friends' money during the past lew months, and that he is working all methods, good, b,1 and indifferent, to get himself back in the Senate for another term. Speak ing of money and elections, the sting of the Presidential bee cost Tilden dearly. 8750,000 is tbe figure at which it is estimated. Last year his contribution was only $15,000, but in 1S7G he spent $;!6t,000, and in 1SS0, when he could have had the nomination himself, he gave $52,0X) to the support of Hancock and Kng lish. During the campaign before this he gave largely, and I suppose, all in all, politics have cost him more than any other man in our history. John IL McLean is said to have paid out a fortune during the past campaign iu Ohio, and I under stand that be gave 837,000 to the election of" Cleveland. Now Cleve land refuses to do anything for Mc Lean, and I understand that John considers that the poorest invest ment be ever made. A man told me recently that McLean intended to get the g:;7,000 out of Cleveland's hide, and that he wanted to come to the Senate for that purpose. He failed in that, but be is now talking of buying the St. Louis Jif)uhUt an, and it is said that he is also negotia ting for the Chicago Time and a New York paper. If he gets these in connection with the Cincinnati ' fuirrr, he will wield a better club than hecould ever have held through the Senatorship, and he will bruise Cleveland's skin though it were as thick as that of a rhinoceros. ' The V. S. Naval Academy. The United States Naval Academy was first opened October 10, 1845. The credit of its foundation is at tributed to the Hon. George Ban croft, the Secretary of the Navy ai that time, lhe course of instruc tion at hrst occupied bve years, of which three were passed at sea. in 1850 the course was changed to sev en years; in 1851 it was shortened to four years, and iu 1873 was fixed at eix years as it still remains the last two to be spent at sea. The academy was removed to Newport, R. I., in May, 1S61, but was taken back to Annapolis in September. 1805. The Navy Department has direct supervision of the affairs of the school. There are to be allowed in the Acrdemy one naval cadet for every member of the House of Rep resentatives, appointed at his nomi nation, one for the District of Co lumbia, and ten appointed at large by the President. The number of appointments, for each year, howev er, is limited to twenty-five, who are chosen from the wohle number of applicants by means of competative examinations. All candidates mnst be from 14 to IS years of age. The successful candidates on becoming students of the academy receive the pay of naval cadets 8500 per an num. Cadets who graduate are ap pointed in the order of merit to the lower grades of the line and of the engineer corps of the navy and the marine corps, as fast as vacancies occur. But such appointments can not he made in excess of vacancies, and graduates who cannot be ap pointed receive an honorable dis charge with one year's sea pay. The course of instruction is very thor ough, involving a close pursuit of mathematics, steam engineering, physics, mechanics, seamanship, ordnance, history, law, etc. Humorous Definitions. A smart, pithy, or humorous defi nition often furnishes a happy illus tration of the proverbial brevity which is the soul of wit. A boy once said that "dust was mud with the juice squeezed out."

Thirty-six miles from Boston, on a branch of the Old Colony railroad is the quaint little station of Web ster Place. The railroad winds and twists through granite cuts, past ehacay forests and over wide ex- I panses ot meadow and salt marsh, ! im Han in t Ha vim1. alone and still, the little station stands. About a mile and three quarters from the station is the home of Dan iel Webster. The country road which leads to it is a typical lankee highway, witu lis abrupt ascents and descents to its Ioneness, and its long lines of rough stone fences. The road is dotted on one side with trees and bushes, and there in tempt ing profusion grow wild cherries, wild plums aud grapes, while here and there a maple tree flashes out a blood red banner of foliage. Along the stone wall the little red squirrels fri?k and chatter, and, mingled with the breath of new mown bay, there comes acrooa the incense ot the sea. Over the brow ol a distant hill rises the monumeut of Miles Stand inh, and grazing in the fields between are groups of cattle, whose tinkling bel! sound clear and sweet upon the country air. At the turn of the road is the mansion ouce owned by John Winthrop.tbe first Governor of Massachusetts. Here Fletcher Web ster's widow, after his death, lived for some years. It is an odd look ing old house, large and roomy. Iu tall chimneys and yellow Umbers, together with the small windows and generally old fashioned appear ance, are very suggestive of lhe by gone memory of colouial days. Your correspondent was shown over the old Webster place by the former foreman of the farm, Mr. Wright, although in his 72d year, is as young in strength and appear ance as most men are at 55. After buying the homestead of Thomas, tfie rovalist. Mr. Webster bean lit tle by little to add to it until at length it had increased to a splen did estate of over 1,700 acres. For variety ot scenery the location is un surpassed. When Mr. Webster was alive he( had a lookout built on one of the hills, where his friends were fre quently invited to overlook Maish field. Seventeen hundred acres o Lid and dale, forest, brook, and riv er, with long stretches of salt marsh and white lines of dusty country road, and far down and 'iut, the reaches of the s.mdy shore, the beat ing surf and distant sails, the cry of the sea birds, and the voice of the ocean forever by his door. And this shove all things he loved, for Webster's master passion was the sea. As. Mr. Wright said, "It wa3 meat and drink to him. He wa3 always Dp before any oneelsein the Turning, and most generally he would start for the shore, and he wouldn't wait for thie who he ex pected to get down about 10 o'clock or so." He fihed a good deal, Mr. Wright said, usually in the bay for cod, haddock, and other sea fish, but sometimes fished the brooks for trout He did not hunt as much as usual in his later years, although at an earlier period his gun had been bis frequent companion. As for his home life, said Mr. Wright, that was devoted in a large measure to the practical working of his estate. He made many different experiments with seaweed and vari ous fertilizers, and took a thorough enjoyment in the minuthe of farm life. His oxen came in for a large share of attention If there was on thing on which he prided himself, it was the oxen. Sometimes he would come across a yoke of steers in his drives around Marshfield that would strike his fancy, and he would come back to the farm and say, "I thick we need another yoke of oxen. Por ter, what do you think we could get those oxen for?" and if they were to be obtained at a reasonable price, very likely he would buy them. In this way" he had gotten together some seven or eight yoke. About a week before he died he had all these oxen yoked together ail brought up before his mdow jn iir,e. m the shade of the elms a roun of contented oxen chewing and was "rest' nter Ocean. to him.

This city is in a flare of excitement over the prohibition question, which has be come th Mile topic or courers ition. Hotels, churches and piivittt? bo:i aii axe turned mtT theatf ra fui ? disctl.v iun of the (.7-t prnhint whether the sulu of lnjuor thuuhl b suppressed iu the city. The stret-U are nightly paraded by processions headed by bra bands : Democntt-i salute fellow-workers of color a "brother ;" women are holding prayer meetings for the success of prohibition, aud all distinction be tween Democrat and Republican has been for the moment forgotten. All this has been brougnt about through an order for an election, to tie heid on the Zoth mst., on a prop osit oa to suppress the s t'e cf liquor iu this city. This campaign to add the capital city of the State, and the most noted city iu the South, to the Prohibition column, is the outgrowth of local option. To explain what local op tion is requires but a few words. From time immemmorial it has been the custom of the Georgia Leg islature to forbid the sale of liquor within so many given miles of schools and churches in rural com munities. These little acts of prohi bition were so much a matter of course that their passage through the Legislature excited no more atten tion than the granting of a free li cense to peddle to some blind beg gar. Neither Democrat nor liepub lican questioned them. Right here the temperance people, who were quietly increasing iu numbers ami holding aloof from politics, headed by sucti shrewd leaders as James G. Thrower, saw their opportunity. As they were men interested in churches aud schools, they took care that new institutions were judicious ly located so as to make prohibition territory as contiguous as possible. Theu a step fuither was taken. Johnson county, far removed from railroads and civilization, asked that her citizens be permitted to vote up on the exclusion of liquor. The re quest was granted, and so remote waj the couuty that when it "went dry," in local parlance, the outside world never heard of it The mil tia districts here and there asked for the privilege of local option, as they called it, and occasionally another back-wooks county would come in. The first sign ol discontent came from the wholesale liquor dealers. When they announced in 1SS3 that total prohibition prevailed over two thirds of the territory of Georgia, and that in consequence thereof the years lu.-tiiess had fallen ott o' per cent, from the figures of the year preceediuc, they were scarcely believed. Yet so it was. The en tire northern portion of the State, a large slice, of southwestern Georgia, and ali ot southeastern Georgia, were as absolutely prohibition territory as if they were portions of Maine. Not only was this thecase, but the prin ciple of local option had crossed the borders of the State, and in Ala bama and South Carolina the same tactics were being pursued. Cross ing the entire breadth of Alabama, tbe movemeLt had extended into Mississippi, where it wa3 already looked upon as a disturbing element in politics. It was at this time that the "little brown jug" made its appearance. The singular activity in the pottery works, which for years had been do ing a falling business, was due to the large demand for gallon and half-gallon jugs. These were in tended for service on the "dry route, ' as the wholesale men termed the "ending of liquor into dry territory. Regular wagou trains were estab lished from towns around which lay large tracts of prohibition terri tory for the purpose of supplying, in an illicit manner, the demand for strong drink. One wholesale house in Savannah sent out, in one month, in this manner ten thousand jugs. Thus challenged, the prohibitionists laid siege, or.e after another, to the smaller towns, until at last out of tbe 138 counties of Georgia 85 were totnlly committed to prohibition, 3W were under partial prohibition, and in only 22 connties was the sale of liquor' unrestricted. Thus victori ous, and emboldened and recruited by the entire Republican vote of the State, which was now out of politics, the tomperar.ee people demanded that the Legislature should pass a general local option bill that is, a bill which would permit an election to be held in any county upon the subject, upon the petition of a given r.umher of citizens, and without the exuenpe and annovar.ee of special ' appeals to the Lesi.-daMire in each i case. Ths contest wa long and bit i ter, but finally h eal option won the day. ai d in the shouts of triumph which Greeted the measure Demo cratic politicians stood mute, while i Republicans cheered lustily.
