BEFORE HE WAS FAMOUS. About 35 or 40 years ago some of the wealthier citizens of Galena, 111., were interested in a projected railroad, which was to give them a connection with Milwaukee, and one day, in 1860, a company of them drove to Janesville, partly to inspect the country through which the line was to run, and partly to consult Janesville capitalists. The trip, as now described by a writer in the Chicago Times-Herald, had one peculiarly interesting incident. . The Galena party headed by a Mr. Corwith, a*rich banker, was met at Janesville by a Mr. Smith and others. When the company were ready to set out, it was noticed that one of the Galena men was unprovided with a seat, and was standing upon the sidefrfulc "Mr. Corwith," said Mr. Smith, "that gentleman is of your party, isn't he?" ~ "Yes, he came over with ue." "Well, well, I'll sit with the driver, and be can have my place." "No, no," was the answer, "don't mind him. He is our driver. I dare say he doesn't care about going." So the man was left upon the sidewalk. The rest of the party bad their drive, and at night were back at the hotel for dinner?a sort of banquet in honor of the delegation from Galena. They vfere already at table when the landlord of the house saw a stranger seated by the office flre. "Have you registered ?" asked the hotel-keeper. "IjTo, sir." . "Going to stay With ns tonight ?!> "I guess so." "Are ?ou of the Galena party ?" "Yes, I am the teamster." The landlord entered the dining room. "Mh Corwith, "said he, "jrbur driver is in the office. Sh^ll he come in to dinner now, or Wait?" Somfe one suggested that be shodld wait; bnt Mr. Corwith said : "No, let the captain come io." And to it happened that Captain tJ. S. Grant did not have to wait and eat with the servants, even if he was the teamster. 1 ? All AcCotitfTED Foe.?Tears ago the courts in Western NeW York found it a matter of great difficulty to collect juries for the trial of cases. Not many of the men of the region took enough interest in the carrying on of coiitts of justice to be willing to leave their daily work to answer even an imperative summons to the jutybox. One case of considerable importance was adjourned from day to day, so toe story runs, on account ui iue ui^aterious disappearance every morning of some of the 12 men who had been drawn and sworn on the jury ; there were never more than eight of these unwilling victims to be found at one and the same time. One morning, however, when the judge's patience had entirely departed, the sheriff came bursting into the courtroom, his face flushed with the excitement of victory. "It's all right now, your honor 1" he cried, joyfully. "You can try the case to day, for we'll have the jury by 12 o'clock sure, It ain't but 10 o'clock now, and I've got 11 of them locked up in my barn, and we're running the 12th man with dogs, your honor."

Id the fall of 1876 I was traveling eastward io a stage-coach from Pitts4 burg over the>mountains. My fellow' travelers were two gentlemen and a lady. The oldest gentleman's appearance interested me exceedingly. 1 In years he seemed about 50; in air and manner be was calm, dignified and polished, and the contour of his features were singularly intellectual. He r conversed freely on different topics, un til the road became more abrupt and F precipitous; but, on my directing his attention to the great altitude of a prer cipice, on the verge of which our 1 coach wheels were leisurely rolling, > there came a marked change on his countenance. His eyes, lately filled ) with the light of intelligence, became > wild, restless and anxious?the mouth i twitched spasmodically, and the fore head was beaded with a cold perapira* i tion. With a sharp, convulsive shudj? i? ? j u. ?? c th. i > uer, uo turueu uio ga*c uvui iuc giuuj j height, and clutching my arm tightly with both hands, he cluug to me like a drowning man. "Use this cologne," said the lady, 5 handing me a bottle, with the instinctive goodness of her sex. ' I sprinkled a little on his face, and he became more composed ; but it was not until we had entirely traversed 5 the mountain, and descended into the > country beneath, that his fine features ' relaxed from their perturbed look, and assumed the placid, quiet dignity that > I had first noticed. "I owe an apology to the lady," ' said be, with a bland smile and a ! gentle inclination of the bead to our fair companion, ".and some explanat tion, and to my fellow-traveler also; * and perhaps I cannot better acquit I myself of the double debt tban by , recounting the cause of my recent agnation." i< r "It may pain your feelings," deli- i . cately urged tbe lady. i ( "On the contrary, it will relieve | ) them," was the respectful reply. i Having signified our several desires i , to hear more, the traveler proceeded : t "At the age of 18 I was }ight of foot 1 and I fear (he smiled) light of head. < ' A fine property on the banks of the i Ohio acknowledged me sole owner. < I was hastening home to enjoy it, and I delighted to. get free from college t life. The month was October, the air ' , bracing, and the mode of conveyance 1 a stage like this, only more cumbrous. I The other passengers were few?only < three in all?one old gray-headed 1 ' planter of Louisiana, his daughter, a joyous, betwitching creature, abont 17 I 1 years old, and his son, about 10 years i ' of age. "Thev were iust returning from I France, of which country the young - lady discoursed in terms so eloquent i ' as to absorb my entire attention. ! "The father was taciturn; but the i daughter was vivacious by nature, I and we soon became so mutually | pleased with each other, that it was 1 not until a sudden flash of lightning J , and a heavy dash of rain against the i , windows elicited an exclamation from 1 ' my charming companion, that I knew I how the night passed. Presently there ' came a low rumbling sound, and then 1 ? several tremendous peals of thunder, i , accompanied by successive flashes of ; lightning. The rain descended in tor- 1 ? rents, and an angry wind began to howl f [ and moan through the forest trees. 1 > "I looked from the window of our I vehicle. The night was as dark as I ebony ; but the lightning showed the 1 danger of our road. We were on the I [ edge of a frightful precipice. I could i , see at intervals, huge, jutting rocks, i f. A Ur, nirvkt 1 I iar away uuv> u us siuc, ouu buc oi^ub made me solicitiou9 for my fair com, pauion. I thought of the mere hairbreadths that were between us and , eternity ; a single little rock in the track of our coach wheels, a tiny billet of wood, a stray root of a tempest-torn , tree, restive horses, or a careless driver. Any of these might hurl us from our sublunary existence with the speed of thought. " ' 'Tis a perfect tempest,' observed the lady, as I withdrew my head from 1 the window. 'How I love a sudden storm! There is something grand , about the winds when fairly loose among the hills. I never encountered a night like this, but Byron's mag1 uifieent description of a thunderstorm in Jura recurs to my mind. But are 1 we on the mountain yet ?' 1 " 'Yes ; we have begun the ascent.' 1 "Is it not said to be dangerous?' ' " 'By no means,' I replied, in as ea9y a tone as I could assume. 1 "I only wish it was daylight, so that we might enjoy the mountain scenery. But what's that ?' and she covered her 11 eyes from a sheet of lighining that illus- \ trated the ragged mountains with c brilliant intensity. * ''Peal after peal of thunder instantly c succeeded ; there was a very volume c of rain coming down at each thunder- v burst, and with the deeper moaning of c an animal in dreadful agony breaking t upon our ears, I found that the coach a bad come to a dead halt. k ''Louise, my beautiful fellow-travel- c er, became pale as ashes. She 6xed a I Atroo /\? tv^lrtA o lnnlr nf onT. f: to UU llilliC U1VU Cfc luvn vi MU? ious dread, and, turning to her father, she hurriedly remarked : s " 'We are on the mountains.' s "'I reckon we are,' was the uncon- li cerned reply. t "With instinctive activity, I put my s head through the window and called i to the driver, but the only answer was o the moaning of an animal, borne past c me by the swift winds of the tempest. 1 I seized the handle of the door and 1 strained in vain?it would not yield, r At that instant I felt a cold hand in a mine, and heard Louise faintly articu- p late in my ear the following appall- s ing words: fc " 'The coach is moving backwards.' a "Never shall I forget the fiefcd agony with which I tugged at the coach door, and called on the driver in tones thai rivalled the fierce blast of the tempest, whilst the conviction was burning on my brain that the coach was being 3lowly moved backwards. "What followed was of such swifl occurrence that it seems to me like e frightful dream. "I rushed against the door with all my forc9 ; but it withstood my utmosl efforts. One side of our vehicle wat sensibly going down, down, down The moaning of the agonized animal became deeper, and I knew from hie desperate plunges that it was one ol our horses. Crash upon crash ol thunder rolled over the mountain and vivid flashes of lightning played over our heads. By its light I could could see for a moment the old plantei standing erect, with bis bands on hit son and daughter, his eyes raised tc hpaven. and his Hds moving as if in ' 7 ?I? w prayer. I could see Louise turn bei ashy cheek toward me as if imploring assistance j and I could see the bold glance of the boy flashing indignanl defiance at the war of elements, and the awful danger that awaited him There was a roll, a desperate plunge a harsh, grating, jar, a sharp, piercing scream of mortal terror, and I had bul time to clasp Louise firmly with one hand around her waist, and seize the fastenings attached to the coach-rool with the other, when we were precipitated over the precipice. "I can distinctly recollect preserving consciousness for a few seconds of time, hott rapidly my breath was being exhausted, but of tbat tremendous descent I soon lost all further knowledge by a fconcussion so violent that 1 was instantly deprived of all sense and motion." The traveler paused. His features worked for a minute or two as the) did when we were on the mountain ; be passed his hands across his forehe&d as if in pain, and then resumed bit thrilling narative. "On a low couch in an humble roon of a Small country bouse, I next open ed my eyes In this world of light atic 3hade, joy and sorrow, mirth and madness. Gentle bands soothed my pillow gentle feet glided across my chamber and a gentle voice for a time bqshed all my questionings. I was kindly tended by a fair ybung girl of about 16 who reflised for a while to hbld any discourse with him. At length, one morning, finding myself sufficiently recovered to sit up, I insisted on knowing the result of the accident. " 'You were discovered," she Said, 'sitting on a ledge of rocks, amidst the branches of a shattered tree, clinging to the roof of your broken coach with one band, and the insensible forin of a lady with the other.' " 'And the lady!' I gasped, scanning the girl's face with an earnestness that made her draw back and blush. " 'She was saved, sir, by the meane that saved you?a friendly tree.' "'And her father and brother?' ] impatiently demanded. " 'We found both crushed to death at the bottom of the precipice, aod we buried them in one grave by the clover patch down in our meadow.' " 'Poor Louise! poor orphan 1 God pity you !' I muttered, in broken tones, utterly unconscious that I had a listener. "God pity her, indeed, sir,' she said, with a gush of heartfelt sympathy, Would you like to see her?' she added. "I found her bathed in tears for her kindred, and she received me with sorrowful sweetness of manner. I [ need not detain you by describing the efforts I made to soothe her grief, but briefly acquaint you that at the last I succeeded, and 12 months after the dreadful occurrence which I have related, we stood at the altar as man and wife. She still lives to bless me with her smiles, but on the anniversary of that terrible night she secludes berself in her room, and devotes the bours of darkness to solitary prayer.

At* "AH JUr U1C, HUUCU LUC LIOTCICI, ivhile a faint blush tinged his noble srow, "as for me, that accident has reiuced me to the condition of a physical coward at the sight of a mountain precipice." "But the driver," asked the lady passenger, who bad listened to the jtory with much attention, "what became of the driver, and did you ever earn the reason of his deserting bis DOSt ?" "His body was found on the road, vithin a few steps of the place where he coach went over. He had been itruck dead by the same flash of lightling that blinded the restive horses." And thu3 ended the thrilling aod emarkable story of life. PHYSICIAN AND BUCCANEER. In an address delivered before the historical Club of Johns Hopkins uuifejsity, Dr. William Osier gives an ac:ount of Dr. Thomas Dover, whose iame has passed dowu to posterity in :onnection with pulvis ipecacuanahae :otnpositus. There are few physicians vho have not prescribed Dover powlera. hut there are.The Medical Record 7 ~ 7 hinks, still fewer who know much ibout Dr. Dover, and especially who mow that he was at one time a sucessful buccaneer, and dicovered Alexnder Selkirk, of "Robinson Crusoe" ftme. Dr. Dover was born in Warwickhire, about 1660, and was probably a tudent of Sydenham's. After taking lis degree he settled in Bristol, and, laving made some money, joined with ome other merchants in a privateerng expedition. Two ships were fitted >ut, and Dover went as third in comuand, being styled "Captain Dover." le sailed to the Spanish Main, and in 709 arrived at the island of Juan Ferlandez. There Captain Dover went isbore, and discovered the sole occuiaut of the island to be a Scottish ailor named Alexander Selkirk, who lad been left, there alone four years ,nd four months before. Selkirk was taken off and made an officer on one of , the skips. The expedition afterward ; sacked the two cities of Guayaquil, , Dover leading in the assault. They i took a number of prizes, and cruised ; about the coast from Peru to California. They then sailed across the Pacific, ; and reached England in 1711. The i expedition was very successful, realizing the enormous sum of $820,000, of I which Dr. Dover received a consider; able part. \ Afier his return home Dover travel, ed again somewhat, but finally went to I London. ) His most famous book is one known F as "The Ancient Physician's Legacy," f published in 1738. This wasa populur , treatise on medicine, and was intended, I apparently, to get practice for the I author. The full title for the book is "The Ancient Physician's Legacy to i His Country, Being What He Has > Collected Himself in 49 Years of Pract tice." The author says: "The diseases * incident to mankind are described in ; so plain a manner that any person may 1 know the nature of his own disease, I; together with the several remedies for I each distemper, faithfully set down." .

February 21 16 f 4t WHAT, Do You Want? "Job Printing." "^^ELL sir, we suppose that you want your Job Printing done, so it will look as though it wasn't a mere accident that it was printed. If you do want good work, we will be glad to do it for you. Our reputation has been built on good work, and we are pniuu ui our (vpuuuiuu, OUR PRICES Arq as low as anybody else's, not even considering the superior quality of out work. Only a few days ago a gentleman gave us an order for 10,000 4-page circulars, and when he was told that our price was $18 for the work, he said that our price was $2.00 less than he ever got the work before. And we were not making a cut price either. Moral: Have your Job Printing done at THE ENQUIRER office and you will get the BEST WORK md LOWEST PRICES. rati in hi wis Schedules in Effect from and After October 81, 1895. Gr. W. F.
