C'httiibrrMburff Journal. MY UNCLE'S LEGACY Charley Wihurn and I are cousins ; hut, Bomehow, I scarcely seemed to be long to the family at all. We had no end of relations, ami he was a general. favorite with all, even some he had not seen, for they would die anil leave him legacies. He was constantly getting some little "windfall" of this kind till at length "Charley Wiburn'a luck" liecame a general catchword among ua a synonym for all that was lucky and fortunate. One morning at breakfast we were artists, and shared the same rooms and studio he received a black edged let ter, which, upon opening and reading, he cast down with a discontented look. "Another funeral to go to," lie grumbled, "and here are my pictures unfinished, and next week is sending- iu-lay." "Who is it now?" Tasked. "Anoth er legacy, I suppose, eh?" "Very likely," he returned. Indif ferently he was so used lo these things he scarcely took aiiy notice of them. "It's Uncle Alexander Stephen. l)id you know him?" I shook my head. "Have heard of him ; never saw him," I taid. "I hardly knew him myself," Char ley explained "at least, not ince I was a boy. It's a rare bother, this, coming just now. Such a long jour ney into the country. I say, Jack, you have done your pictures! and sent them in, and have nothing to do for a spell Nildu't you go down for me?" "What, in your name?" I exclaim ed. "Yes; why not? It's years since I was among any ot the seL 1 lus letter is from Mr. Parchly, the solicitor to the will, I supjKise ; he doesn't know me. lou are Jach iburn it s only a difference of Christian names; and it's all in the family, you know." To cut the matter short, I had to consent, as I generally did where Char ley was concerned. I took the lawyer's letter, as a sort of credential, and set out, grumbling a good deal at what I considered Char ley's "cheek" in thus making use of me. If I had finished up my work be fore he had, it was only because I had worked at it more constantly ; and now, instead of reaping the advantage iu the thape of a few day's rest, he made it an excuse for sending me off on a lugubrious mission like this ; and Charley would, no doubt, have a good legacy, too, out of it. "I don't suppose it's much," he said to me. "Perhaps a hundred or two hardly worth going down for, you know I" So I had to go with no legacy in view at all, small or large. The next day, therefore, saw me among the assembled guests. I found out Mr. Parchly, and silently showed him his own letter. "Ah," said he, you. are Mr. Wihurn. Very good. Glad to see you." I did not reply, so he concluded that I was Charley Wi burn, without my having said any thing one way or the other. But, when, after the funeral, the will came to be read, I found Charley was down for 5,000 ! This made me think it harder lines than ever that I should have had to come down in his place. The weather was atrociously cold, the March winds strong and blustering, with showers of sleet and snow ; and I felt cold and miserable. At the end of the reading of the will I was making my way out to get back to the hotel, when some one said : Mr Wiburn, I believe?" I looked around, and saw a fctiff, military-look ing old boy regarding me with a smile through his spectacles. "Charley," said he, don't you remember me?" I thought to myself, "Oh, now I'm in for it Here's a nice mess all through trying to serve Charley. Just my bad luck-V This feeling did not grow less when he said : "Mill wants to speak to you. She has been looking at you, and says she can hardly rt cognize you for her old playfellow." ("No won der," I thoughL "It would be strange if she did !") She came up and shook hands ; and the moment I looked at her I simply fell helplcst-iy over "head and ears in love then and there. She seemed to toe the loveliest, most adorable creat ure I had ever seen. A sudden resolve came into my mind. Ilather than run the risk of losing the chance I now had of speaking to her, I would say noth ing about my not being "Charley," let the consequences be what they might "iXm't you remember your little playmate, Milly?" said she, with a blush and an entrancing look of her b -autiful eyes. "Well, it's not so sur prising, for I should never have known you either, if Mr. Tart-hly hat! not pointed you out to us." ' Before I exactly realised what I was, doing, I was whisked otrto Major r$ain ficld's house as I found the name of Milly's father to be to dine, calling at the hotel for my evening "togs" on the way. I found the Major's house a neat, quiet looking little place on the out skirts of the town. He lived alone with his daughter (his wife being dead) a house Keeper ana one servant. Though everything was comfortable, there was that indescribable air that gave oue the impression that they were set ESTABLISHED 1827. not too well off as regards this world's goods. Since I was not too well off, either, this would not have troubled me, but for that legacy of 'y,0M I was suppos ed to have coiue in for. "Was that the secret cause of this sudden friendli ness?" I a-ked myself. But when I looked at Millie, and saw the frank glance of her truthful, honest looking eyes, I felt ashamed of myself; nor, when I regarded the Major and noted the open, manly look the line old sol dier gave back to nie, could I bring myself to think of him as a scheming old fortune hunter. Such good friends ' did we three be come that I lingered on in the place for a week, during which time I daily grew more uncomfortable at the part I was playing. At last I sought out Millie one day, alone, and confessed the truth to her. "I am not surprised," she said ; "I thought you were not much like the Charley I used to know. But I am sorry lor you sorry to think your cousin should have got that 5,000 while you were not even so much as mentioned." "Ah !" I said, with a sigh, "that is Charley's luck and mine. It Lsalways the same always haslieen, and always will le, I suppose." I was thinking what I dared not say that, if that xyWO had but been mine, I could have asked her to be mine, too; whereas now, with my poor prospects well, of course, it was folly ever to dream of such a thing. I watched her narrowly after that, but could see no difference iu her treat meiit of me. I had written to Charley, telling him of his good fortune, and that I was going to stay on down here for a few days ; but lieyond a brief note express ing wonder at whatever attraction I could see there at that time of the year, lie had saia nothing and written no further ; not a word of thanks, or of reference to his X ,0s) legacy. Another week slipped by, aud I still stayed on. At the end of that time I was in such a state of mind that, one day, finding myself alone with Millie, I blurted out my hopeless love for her, and said I should go away at once, for I felt that I could not possibly stay on there any longer. Milly, always quiet and self-possessed, remained silent a while, and then said, looking down : 'I think you had better speak to papa." "What !" I rapturously exclaimed, do you really bid me hrqe, Milly? "Do you really think there is a possi bility of your father" I stopped aud shook my head. "Alas, no !" I said. such a thing could not happen to me. It would le Charley's luck, that not mine." "Well," said Milly, composedly, they say you never know your luck till you try ; but if you are too faint hearted to try, why, of course " 'I'll go off and rind the Major, and have it out at once," I burst out And I saw him accordingly, and told him the whole story, humbly apologiz ing for daring to ask for his daughter's hand, when, as I was bound to tell him, I was not Charley, but Jack Wi burn, and I had no -', MX legacy, and no pnwpeets iu particular, and "no luck !" "H'm," said the Major, "how is it Master Charley comes in for all the "luck in this way?" 'I don't know, sir," I answered dolefully. "He goes about more, and makes himself more liked. I think. while I" I hesitated. "While you stick at home and work. Is that it?" he said. 'Well," I returned, 'I try my best. You see, I have nothing else to rely on r hope for like Charley. It's his hick and mine !" However," said the Major," "I have been told you get your pictures hung, and sell them, which is more than he does. Is that luck, too?" To this I made no reply ; I couldn't see its relevancy. 'Now, look here, Mr. Jack Vibur," the Major went on, "I knew you were not Charely Wiburn" ( I looked up in surprise). "Milly told me; aud I have made certain inquiries of my own, and I have something to tell you. The late Alexander Stephen Wiburn was a very Id and intimate friend of mine, and had long ago set his heart upon Milly's marrying Charley." (Here I jumped up excitedly, but he waved his hand to be quiet). "But he was determined that if it came about at all, it should be spontaneous, and not through any compulsion or unworthy motive. But in that will you heard read the other day there was something you did not hear it was mixed up in another mat ter ; but it comes to this, that if Milly married "his nephew,' he and she were to have a certain sum between them to commence housekeeping with. have consulted Mr. Parchly upon t,his matter, as "Charley's name is not expressly mentioned, and as he would not take the trouble to come down him self, even to the funeral of his poor old uncle, who had been so kindly disposed to him, if Milly likes you well enough to have you, you and she will be just as much entitled to the sum set aside as if Master Charley had married her ; and I am sure I shall not object to the substitution. In the will the only con dition is that Milly shall marry "his nephew," and of course you are as much his nephew as Charley is. Therefore, I leave it with Milly ; if she says "Yes," I say the same, and you will both have something to set up housekeeping with." No need to tell the joy with whicj) heard this unexpected news, or the, heartiness with whitJi I thanked the kind-hearted M,ajor. "I'll go off and tell Mil!y at once," I said ; but I had not gone far when le called me back.. "You. dou't ask bow much you will bave to start housekeeping upon," he said. "What matter, sir, since you think it enough ?" I answered. "I I'm; but you nuy as well know. You may not think it enough." "How much is it, then?" I asked. "Fifty thousand pounds !" taid the Major. And this is what Charley lost and I gained by that journey Milly (w.'tth more than all) aud 10,000 ! APHIL 22. 1896. And now Charley won't speak to me or to my wife for Milly and I are married, and lie says I meanly took advantage of him ; but I say, as I used te say before, it is ail his luck and mine. The GcntU trnnuui. The If an From The West. "So you were a pioneer in the early days of the West?" "I was," answered the graybtard. "And you lived out among the hostile Indians?" "Yes." "Lived with a rille in your hands and in hourly ex jactation of lieing the mirk for a hidden enemy's bullet?" "It was something like that." "I k you know, I often think a life like that must be terrible. I should think the mere strain on the nerves would kill a man iu a short time holding your life in your hand all the time, always conscious that a moment's relaxation of vigilance may mean death." "Oh, I don't know," replied the graybeard. "When I came back from the West I was W) yer.rs old and did not have a gray hair. I got off the railroad train and started to walk across the street Half way over I heard the dingedest clanging and yelling right on my heels I ever heard, and some body gave me a push that sent me clear to the curb. Then when I locked I saw I'd come within an ace of lieing run over by a trolley. Never had to narrow an escape front Indians. "I went into a saloon close by to git a drink and settle my nerves. While I was standing at the bar a couple of fellows got into a scrap and one of them threw a heavy beer mug. Didn't hit the other fellow, but it came within a sixteenth of an inch of my right temple. "I started to walk up town and the first crossing I came to a policeman grabbed me by the shoulder and jerked me across so quick it made 1113 head swim. I looked to see what was the matter, for there were no car tracks on that street, and I saw that I had just escacd being run down by a hackmau who was hurrying to catch a train. "L'p street a little further somebody yelled, 'Look out!' at me, and when I jumped a big icicle fell off a roof and struck just where I had been standing. "I got to my hotel and was heading for the door when somebody grnbbtd me and asked me if I wanted to I e killed. They were hoisting a safe into a second story window over where I'd leen trying to go, and I lutdn't more than got out of the way U-fore the roje broke and it dropped.

Nothing that can hapjien to a people is ns demoralizing in its effect as war; especially a civil war. Outside of the cost to the governments enguri-d, and the devastation and waste of pnqierty and substance, the demoralizing effects on character can never !e effaced. While a war of any kind is horrible enough, a civil war is infinitely wor-e in every particular. After a laje of more than thirty years, the animosi ties and bitterness of our own civil war are only iK-ginning to disappear, and the huge debt owed bv the United States Covernment will be a remind- er, for years to come, of what war costs. Some writer has said: "Oh, LiU-rtv! what crimes are committed in thy name." If there is a latent distinction. however slight, in auy young man, to evil, a soldier's life develops it to the imicisi extent, ine writer knew any number of young men who were mor al, well-behaved citizens, or at lea-t, civil, at home, who developed into very tough characters in the field. May kind Providence protect us from another civil war! During the late war, particularly along the border, there were niany instances of theft and ra pine committed by both sides that ous'iit to have brought a iitis!i 01 shame to their cheeks. Hundred of horses were driven acrss the Uirdcr that had been owned by non-combat ants, for which no recompense was ever made. A troop of cavalry served in Virginia and Maryland, whose prin cipal service seemed to be to ride lack and forth along the pike, and coming iu the direction of Western Pennsyl vania and Eastern Ohio, it required several horses frequently, for each man. Smie of these voting fellows came this way so often that p.Hiple be- came well acquainted with them, i in anticipation of the coming of tiie One in particular, whose name has es- j enemy.

He was known j on a magnificent blooded hor-e, and to everybody by the name of "Lizy j one 0:1 a large m ile. They an Jane," because he was constantly sing-j nouiiciil that the Confederate army inga song, in which "He went out I was only a few miles east of Peters the new-cut road, and she went out burz, and, of course, there was hurry- the lane" where he "met her on the corner," with the refrain at t'.ie end of every verse: "Sing go long Lizy Jane." The hist time this young mm pissed through Petersburg he was in theconi ptny of a squad of United States sol diers, and was somewhat encumbered in his movements by manacles. "Lizy Jane" evidently failed to meet bird at the corner on time. )nce some of these cavalrymen were coming west, and this side of Frostburg, on the top of Savage mountain some lumber teams hod halted to eat their dinner an 1 feed their horses, among them be ing one old, inoffensive and innocent (ierman, whose name is not remem lered at this writing. The old man had taken the harness off his horses, j to let them cool off, the day being j warm, and he was lying down under a tree, the harness bein? c1isj bv on 1 the ground. When the soldiers came along, one of them r.xle over the old (aerman's harness, who politely told him not to do so. Without any furth er provocation or parley, the soldier drew his revolver, and riding to where the old man lay, shot him dead. He was never arrested or punished. He turned his horse into the pike, and, with his companions, rivje off west ward, leaving the old man lie as he had fallen. Another time the same nun, with the same comrades, possi bly, or, at least, some of the same eom m md, came through Petersburg, also going westward; they were all drunk, and this one particular person attempt ed to ride into the bar-room of the ho tel, kept at that time by James Al bright, a cripple, who always used crutches, and who now lives in Ursina. He rode his horse over the pavement, aii up the stone steps, with bis front ftwt inaide the door, when Mr. Albright Caught the horse by the bridle and forced, him back again. The soldier, in his drunken freuzy pulled out an immense pistol, cocked it, and aimed it directly at Mr. Albright, and would iuxt certainly have shot him, had not one of his companions, more sober, or sensible, or merciful, charged up on his horse, and taken the pistol from him.

With our little standing army and its trained officers we have a nucleus around which can gather, if necessary, and when neeeswary, the grandest ar my the world has ever seen; but our strength is our safe-guard, and war with any other jswer is now a remote poMdhility, never likely to mvur, ami, more partit-uliarly, is a war la-twec 11 the states an inposoibility again, lie cause the cause has been removed, an 1 the same reverence for our institutions and laws exists all over the land, ce mented, as it has Utn, by untold blood and treasure.

We had no telegraph line then, it having been taken down a ' year or so previou-Iy, and our only means of obtaining news was from Climlicrlaiid, Md-, on the east, or Unioutown on the west. At that par ticular time, however, we were more esp-.i-ially interested in the news from Cu!iil-rlainl. The imprc-ion prevail -d th.it Early and las r-.ug!i ri lcrs were coming on a raid along the pike. Stragglers and camp followers from Milroy'sarmy were seen in large num bers going westward.

Our citizens would be told they were at Ciru'n.T land, then at Frmlburg, then on Sav ngt; mountain, lh,-n at irantsville, then on K oyer's Itidge, and so on. . They were kept iu a fever of unrest for a gad many days and the moun tains, from Cumberland to Union tow 11, were full of horsM. E.-ery night the farmers would t ike their horses to the mountains and bring them back in the morning; but it was something like tiie cry of "Wolf, wolf," only the wolf never canu. Fortifications and forts, of considerable dimensions aud strength, wen.- erevtc 1 on the hills amund Pittslur, and on the pike east of Uniontowu rille-pits were dug ing to and fro, hiding of valuables. running off horse-, and excitement rose to the highest pitch, but the Con federates, at that time, never even came to Cumberland, and only a small squad was ever there.

According to Dr. G. Schatt, who has been making a siecial study of nee-ait wave's, their spefd in a moderate bree ze is bi.s mile's per hour. Their size and spevel increase proportionately to the? velocity of the wind. In a strong hreczer they increase to 3) feet in length, and reach a speed of 3i feet per second. Itt heavy storms their length increases to hK) fee t and the speed to 2S miles an hour. Dr. Schatt does not think thai the maximum height of the waves is very great; his maximum is just 32 feet. He believes that in great temie-st waves of more than W feet are rare, and that even those of ") feet are ex ceptional. In the ordinary trade winds the height is five to six feet.
