WILKETS DUTY. t . asssaaa. 8n ' " alwayi tried to do it," "he said, bat like the kitchen work of poor housekeepers, it waa never done up. Tim insisted that there was more than belonged to one family; Aunt 'Lix 'beth took in a rood deal for other folks;" and once he slily chalked a sign upon the front door, Duty Done Here." Bat then Tim had arrived at that pecu liar aee when a boy has no rights and is needed to ran on errands, and it is probably that duty his annt's, not his own interfered with his comfort even more than that of older people. In truth, Mrs. Wilkin's duty was not a convenient article to have about a house. It was a bristling, aggressive affair, always springing up unexpectedly like one of the dogs so unaccountably petted in some households for their sole virtue of being always in the way. Moving forward, one runs against the creature and it erowls: mo vine- back ward, one steps upon its tail and it snarls. ' It lies on the back piazza to be carefully -stepped over in the day time and disastrously stumbled over at night; and haunts the front steps to bark at every visitor coming in, and howl after every member of the family going out. Mrs. Wilkin kept no dog, but her duty sniffed an opportunity and pounced out of its hiding place, when there came a timid litue knock at the tuning-room door in the early morning, and its an swering revealed a small, quiet-faced. brown-robed figure face and dress both past the rresnness ox their youtn car rying a basket. Good morning, Mrs. Wilkin." " Come inF" questioned Mrs. Wilkin, with only half an invitation in her voice.5 " The aooeptance was a half one like wise. The little brown woman stepped in. eertaimy, ana poisea nersell on the outer edge of a chair nearest the door. I called to lee if you didn't want to buy some knitted articles, or to engage some work of that sort." she began in a gentle, aeprecating voice. - "Well, I don't," interposed Mrs. Wilkin, very positively. I do all such work myself." I didn't ' know. Many ladies haven't time, and I'm srlad to do it." "I suppose so, bat f consider it my duty to do all I can myself and set other folks the example, whether they follow it or not," said Mrs. Wilkin, with a slight gesture like emptying her hands of responsibility. If I was goin to give out work at all it would be some hard jobs that it would be a help to be rid of, not the pick and choice little easy things that I call rest and not work; but then I ain't as particular as some, and so I do all kinds mvseli." A faint flush crossed the visitor's thin face. She was not quite sure that "she had been called indolent and advised to go to work and earn an honest liv ing; the words only had an uncom fortable sound; so her lips kept their umia, gentle smile, though they trem bled a little. She held first one hand in its thin cotton glove and then the other, to the fire; moved uneasily. glanced down at her feet with a dim thought that if they had always chosen the smoothest path it had yet been . rough enough to wear out her shoes much faster than she could replace them; ana then sne arose to go. "Wasn't yon rather hard on her. 'Ldrbetnr asked Air. Wilkin, with regretful glance toward the door as it closed. Mrs. Wilkin returned to her seat at the breakfast table and surveyed him over the shining tin coffee-pot. " Hard on herP I only told her what I do, and if that pricks her conscience and makes her uncomfortable, it's not my fault. But you needn't worry; she just said 'Good morninV sweet as ever. - She's one of the weak kind that can't be stirred up and haven't spank enough to say their soul's their own. I wonder what such folks are good for; they'll never make the world any bet ter, that's sure. They haven't courage enough to help put down any evil if it was right under their noses; they'd only stand and smile. The very sight 01 one 01 'em provoKes mm x consider it my duty to speak out when I see things going wrong." "But then everybody ain't alike, 'Lis'beth," interposed Mr. Wilkin. Needn't telf me that, it's plain enough," snapped Mrs. Wilkin. "Just look at this neighborhood peaceable, orderly place two years ago; and now there's a mill started and all sorts of vagabonds brought here to work in it. If I'd bad my way they wouldn't have come; an now they're here somebody ought to keep a sharp watch on 'em. cut mat s the trouble; there s so many mild, easy folks that want to ait still an' ao the knitun work of life that there s precious few left to take any care of the good of society." i don't see that the mill folks have done any mischief yet, 'Lis'beth." . 'Of course you don't see, and no oody else sees; but 1 know there's some thing goin' on. when the lower part of the mill that old empty store-room back where it can't be seen from the street is lighted up two or three nights every week," said Mrs. Wilkin, tri umphantly. I've watched the twinkle through the shutters, tight as they're shut, and seen folks slippin' in through tne aoor too. it s time it was looked after, and I'll do my duty, if nobody else does. They may be a gang of thieves or counterfeiters starting for all we know." A suppressed giggle made Tim sud denly cough ana put down his coffee cup. ilniothyr exclaimed bis aunt, se verely, If you can't drink coffee with out doin' it so fast that you choke your self, you'll have to go without it. Til do my best to bring you up right, what ever comes out." Bringing up Tim in the way he should go was one of Mrs. Wilkin's strong points. He was the son of her niece; and Belinda had married in opposition to her aunt's advioe. Mrs. Wilkin pro tested and then washed her hands of the whole matter. But when the poor man was so inconsiderate as to die and leave Belinda with half a dozen chil dren Just when she needed his help, Mrs. Wilkin's opinion of his general slackness" was verified. Tho family were poor, of course. She didn't be lieve in sending in many things self dependence was a duty but she of fered to take Tim. Having the boy to raise makes me more careful about the morals of the whole place," she said, returning to ber original subject; and as tor there being no thieves 'round here, I've thought for some time that the meat went pretty last - from our smoke house." - - "Don't now,"Li'beth; I I'm sure no one's stole any," said Mr. Wilkin, with a startled, uneasy look. " You you couldn't have counted the hams ana everything. ' - ' "No, I don't count, but I can miss 'em for all that," affirmed Mrs. Wilkin decidedly. I know there's more go than we use." '"Anyway, It's' no difference.' I wouldn't. 'Lis'beth there's plenty. you see; more than we want," advised Mr. Wilkin, urgently but rather inco herently. Then he caught up his hat and darted for the barn. ! Mrs. Wilkin looked after him with pitying disapproval. . When you've more than you want yourself, leave it bandy lor somebody to steal! Well, that's a new command ment, I do declarer she said. Not so dreadful new, neither. Aunt 'Liz'beth." interposed Tim stoutly 'Cause the Bible folks were told to be sure and leave some of their harvest so the poor could come and get it. 1 read it myself; only it wasn't called stealing then, and was to be left handier than all stowed away in smoke-houses." " Timothy P began Mrs. Wilkin. But Tim - suddenly remembered that the chickens were waiting lor their break- last, and chose to interpret the excla mation as an admonition in that direc tion. ' Yes'm, I'm goin to feed 'em right away." he observed, seizing a basket of corn and darting through the door by which his uncle had departed. - In truth it was not altogether easy to mold Tim into the desired shape; there was too much individuality about him. Encasing him in Mrs. Wilkin's code of manners was putting too large a boy into too small a jacket; he was always bursting out at the elbows or tearing off the buttons. Mrs. Wilkin sighed at this evidence of the number of things in the world that needed her attention; but England never expected every man to do his duty more strongly than Mrs. Wilkin expected to do hers. That evening the mysterious lignts appeared again in the store-room of the mill. She could plainly see them, for just beyond her own back gate an open field sloped directly and steeply down to the building. The road afford ed a public and more circuitous mode of reaching it, but from the hill top the suspicious store-room was directly in range. Mrs. Wilkin determined to take a more thorough observation than the kitchen window allowed, and, throwing a shawl over her head, she picked her way carefully down the icy steps and crossed the yard to the gate. The snowy field lay white and glistening in the moonlight, and, standing in the sheltering shadow of a post, she watched the door below. ... - But before she discovered any one entering there she heard sounds in another direction steps in the yard be hind her. What if she should prove beyond all doubt that her meat was stolen and detect the thief? With that quick thought she turned her head cau tiously. Yes, some one tried the smoke house door and entered. Breathlessly Mrs Wilkin waited until the figure re appeared, passed along in the shade of the house, and then, as it emerged into the clear moonlight, she leaned eager ly forward to catch a full sight of it. It was easily recognized. Mr. Wilkin, beyond all question, stealing from his own stores! The revelation was astonishing. In her astonishment Mrs. Wilkin incau tiously loosened her hold on the gate post, took a step forward, and her feet slipped upon the treacherous ground. She sat down violently, and in an in stant was speeding rapidly down the hill toward her original point of inves tigation. For once the path of duty was smooth before her entirely too smooth, and icy. . She could not check or guide her progress, her feet struck with force against the mysterious door, pushed it open, and she slid into a hall. Thieves, gamblers or whoever they were, she must not be discovered by them flashed through Mrs. Wilkin's mind more an instinct of self-preservation than a thought and springing to her feet, she slipped behind some boxes piled near her. The noise at tracted attention, and in a moment the store-room door was opened and a boy looked out. "Guess it's only the door blew open; don't catch good," he retorted. Lock it then, James, and bring in the key," said a voice from within; and to Mrs. Wilkin's consternation the or der was obeyed, and she was a prisoner. The boy left the other door slightly ajar as he re-entered. A gleam of light shone into the hall, and there were sounds from the room beyond a scratching of pens and a woman s voice; it sounded wonderfully like that of the little knitting woman, directing and encouraging. Well done, Susan." "Now, don't be disheartened. Will. Of course while you work in the mill, and can only study at night, you can't get along just as some do who can go to school all day; but what yon learn may be of more use to you. We care most for the things that coot us trouble." There were a few simple mathemat ical problems, and then a reading, and the words, spelled out with difficulty by some, were Bible words. ' Charity sudereth long and Is kind," " Vaunteth not itself," Seeketh her own." "Tbinketh no evil," "Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth aU things." It was easily understood. Mrs. Wil kin leaned forward a little, and could peep into the room. Fifteen or twenty boys and girls from the mill gathered into a nigm scnooi. men those won derful words read so slowly and em phatically, seemed suddenly to assume a new ana aee per meaning than Airs. Wilkin had ever thought of their pos sessing some things do show so much more clearly in the dark than in the the timid little woman, who would have been frightened at her own voice in any other audience as laree. explain ed in her simple, gentle way the pas sage read, it occurred to the listener outside that some one was keeping a " sharp watch" on these mill people, after all, and that this might be a better way of doing it than would be practiced by any police force. It was a very in formal school. One girl had brought her best dress that the teacher might show her how to mend a rent in it, and another was trying to knit a pair of mittens for her brother. Every heart has its thaws. Mrs. Wilkin had a heart down under all the crust of opinions that she christened duty; she became interested despite ber uncomfortable situation. The position was unpleasant. She did not like playing eaves-dropper to this innocent gathering, but there seemed no help for it. She could not escape through the locked door; and boldly revealing herself, and explain ing her absurd suspicions, and the re markable way in which she had come there, was more than even her thought could endure, so she kept her place, hoping that when the pupils were dis missed she might slip out among them unnoticed. But when the lesson hour ended they departed slowly by twos and threes, the open door flinging a flood of light out into the hall. At last only one lingered, and Mrs. Wilkin listened in tently as she caught his voice. Now, Tim," said the little knitting woman, 1 like to have you come, you know that, and i ll help you all I can, but you must really tell your aunt about it." Well, you see, I don't know what she 11 say." began Tim. irresolutely. But that shouldn't hinder you from doing your duty." " Don't know about that," said Tim, still doubtfully. You see. Aunt 'Liz' beth's got an awful 'mount of duty ot ber own, and it s such a partic lar kind that other folks can't get much chance to do theirs only when hers is a nap- pin-, vv by, uncle Keub gives my mother lots of meat, but he just slips on ana don't tell." Well, if you don't know what is right for you, I know what is right for me," said the little teacher, with a quiet laugh; "and 1 can't let you come again until you tell your aunt how you spend your evenings." Mrs. Wilkin nodded a vigorous ap proval, but it was evident that Tim de parted in a state of dissatisfaction. There was a sound of a crutch tapping on tne noor, ana Airs. Wilkin remem bered that a little lame brother had sometimes gone about with the knitting-woman. They two were left alone in the room, and went around shaking out the fire and putting up books and papers. "Only ten cents a week for each that's so little," said the boyish tones, musingly. " Yes, but it isn't so very much I can teach them," answered the little wom an, humbly. And then it is all they can afford to pay. poor things! And you know we began more for their MrM than rtnr rhwn thrkiMrh wa Ha humI money. Courage, thougli, Johnny! it ail counts, and you shall have your wviwaif probiy BUUU, uow. this is work that blesses both ways in what we give as well as what we get," If she could only pass that open door. Mrs. Wilkin was growing be numbed by standing so long in the cold. Finally the lights were extin guished, and the two came out. Just then, fortunately, Johnny remembered that they had left a book behind them, and as the unconscious jailers turned back, the prisoner seized her opportuni ty and escaped. She was sitting alone by the fire when Tim, who had made his homeward route sufficiently circuitous to include a call on his mother, returned. He sat down near her, twisted his fingers un easily, and Mrs. Wilkin guessed what was coming. "There's been an evenin' school started here. Aunt 'Liz'beth," " So I understand," responded Mrs. Wilkin, coolly. " Why. I thought" began Tim. with wide open eyes of surprise, and then checked himself with the sudden re flection that it might not be wise to re call the conversation of the morning. " I'd like to go to it that is, I've been once or twice," he said. "Fact is. Aunt 'Liz'beth, when we lived down the river, before you took me, there wasn't any school for me to go to, and so I'm behind other fellers. Miss Kel sey, she makes 'rithmatio so plain, and neips me witn wnun', and so" You might do worse," said Mrs. Wilkin, briefly. Go if you want to. Only one thing, Timothy Stone, I won't uavD snjr vou cent ousiuess aoout ill uonesi is nonest, ana u s worth more n ten cents a week to teach you anything, J know." Tim forgot to be astonished at his aunt's knowledge, and overlooked the reflection upon himself, in the pleas ure of expressing a desire that he had cnerisnea secretly but hopelessly. "She wouldn't take any more pay, 'cause she'd want to serve all alike. but, oh. Aunt 'Liz'beth, if 1 just could give her and Johnny something nice ior unnsimas: - "Humph! I'll think about it," an swered Mrs. Wilkin, disapprovine-lv. 'Liz'beth," began Mr. Wilkin, nervously, the next morning. "I wouldn't say nothin' to anybody about thieves, or watchin' them mill folks, if I was you." ' I don't mean to," replied his wife. with an odd pucker about her lips. Well, I'm glad of it I really am. said Mr. Wilkins, in a tone of great re lief, " 1 don't think anybody's stole anything, and somehow it seems to me as 'if our duty nowadays is a good deal like it was when them Israelites took Jericho only just marchin' against the bit of wall that's right in front of us, and lettin our neighbor take care of what's in front of him. It sort of seems that way, 'Liz'beth." Mrs. Wilkin did not answer, but she took her revenge that evening, when Mr. Wilkin was going out, Reuben," she said quietly, if you see any thieves 'round our smoke house, just tell 'em there's a couple of chickens hanging near the door, that I dressed a purpose.

The Chairman then went through SU Martin a affidavit. Inter rogating witness on every point where bit name was mentioned, the resnlt of which waa a general and nartlcular denial of all the charges embodied therein. The SnB-Coananlttee. New Yobx, Feb. 5. The first witness examined by the sub-committee was Smith M. Weed. He testified that he went to Nor! h Carolina under Instructions received at the Everett House; had a cipher when he lelt which be used from botn ftonn and South Carolina; destroyed both the key and the copies of the dispatches, yet he thought the dispatches as published in the Tributu were pretty correct; met Mr. Cox In South Carolina: from there telegraphed Henry Uavemeyer to the effect that be, witness, bad nothing to do and wanted to go home; npan response to this went back to South Carolina; did not register under another name; was asked to furnish money, and believing that two out of three States had been carried by the Democrats, determined what to do and tele graphed to New York asking if money con Id be furnished ; the dispatches between himself and Henry Havemever were the only ones he sent; finally an arrangement 01 jefinlte prop osition wss handed him saying that for 00, 000 or $30,000 the South Carolina Canvassing Board would make things all right for the Democrats; left Columbia for Baltimore: representatives of the Canvassing Board and others were on the train; to make matter short he Doettivelr declined to receive the proposition made by the Canvassing Board to Dana over tne state to tne iMmocrata. l ne translation of telegram No. 35, signed W., dated Columbia. 8. C November 18. and directed to Henry Havemever, New York, was then read by witness as follows : A majority of the Board have been secured. The cost is asO.OOO, to be sent as follows: One parcel of $65,000, one of $10 000, and one of $5,000, all to be $600 or $1,000 bills; notes to be deposit ed as parties accept and given up upon the vote of the land of Hampton L ., tbe State nf South Carolina be given to TUden's inenas. ine tnree pacKS anouia oe sent without Inscrlntlon. and to-night, unless you should receive a telegram from me counter manding: shall try to secure everything ov the plan of deposit. The friends of Cham berlain and Bavaria (?) are here in force, and I fear their money and careful watching and Intimidation of the Board. For God's sake let It go if you can. Be safe in Florida or Africa (!). Do this and have cash ready to reach Baltimore Sunday night. I eiegraph de cidedly whether it will be done." Witness said that he could not tell what parts of this trans lation were correct and which were not. From his recollection of the events as they occurred, be thought the translation was aub- suniiauy correct, inougn nis memory was that the sum named was $60,000 instead of $80,000; thought that one sentence should read " for God's sake let it go if you can be safe In Florida or Africa" without any period after the word "can." His Idea was that the thing should not be done if it could be avoided. A number of other dispatches were produced, but tbe witness could not recognize them. Witness stated that Solomon, with whom be proposed to treat as to the purchase of tbe Canvassing Board, came to Baltimore with him. Winess met Colonel Pel ton in Balti more, and Pelton told htm that the "old man," meaning Governor Tilden, witness sup posed, had received a telegram from Edward Cooper stating that he could not raise the money. There waa a telegram from Gov ernor" Ttlclen of a similar character. This witness told to Solomon, who sent a dispatch to the Board and in three or four nours afterward the Returning Board gave a decision the other wsv. The substance of the telegram was that the goods could not be delivered, and that the arrangement or bar gain was off. In reply to a question by Mr. Stenger if he had had any communication on this subject with Mr. Tilden from the day be fore tbe election, either directly or indirectly, ud to the time the South Carolina Canvassing Board met or afterward, witness replied that be met Mr. Tilden at tbe J&verett House, and was taken to task by that gentleman. Could not give the exact words of Mr. Tilden, but ue stated mat ne never auinonzea any sucn proceedings, and that while he lived be would never become President under such circum stances. Witness further stated that the proposition as to buying out of the Returning Board was submitted to Mr. Havemeyer, and at first wit ness wss led to believe the money would be sent to hlui, but It -fell through. Outside of Mr. Havemever witness said be never men tioned the matter of negotiation to a single person. At tbe conclusion of Mr. Weed's testimony Mr. Cooper entered the room and asked permission to be examined. Tbe evi dence of Mr. Weed in connection with the mention of Mr. Cooper's name was read to him. It waa in substance a conversation which Mr. Weed bad with Mr. Pelton in Balti more, In which Pelton said be expected money, some $80 000, for South Carolina, to be sent by Julward Cooper. Mr. Cooper stated that be saw Pelton the evening before he went to Baltimore in Governor TUden's house. Pel- ton waa about going to tbe train and said he wss going to Baltimore to meet Weed and others, and he said be might want to tele graph witness to send him some money. Wit ness received a telegram next dav from f el ton asking him for $60,000 or $80,000; waa astonished, and went at once to Governor TU den's house, and he said Pelton must be tele- grapned to return at once; never was antbor ued to send Pelton any money, nor did he do so; TUden was also surprised at Pelton'sdis- f atch ; witness thought Pelton took on himself he responsibility of trying to purchase the Florida Returning Board and the electoral vote ox uregon. New Yobx, Feb. . Colonel Pelton was before tbe committee and testified that all telegrams sent by Weed were by his instructions addressed to Mr. Havemeyer, who at once sent them to wit ness. After this they were presented to the committee at the Everett House, in wit ness absence, were opened by the National Democratic Committee. Witness stated that he could not remeraoer anything about the dispatches from Tallahassee and signed " Mar ble;" admitted that there was no question but the Tribmn dispatches got near the point, yet they were inaccurate ; always understood WooUey and Fox were the same person ; did not remember whether or not be used the word "Denmark" as a signature; bad an idea mat tne Returning noara propositions, even if not carried out, would resnlt If assented to. In dclav which would be favorable to the Democratic party; made no arrangements for raising money, out intended eventually to lay the matter before tbe Democratic National Committee and let It decide ; In the meantime he thought it best to commit members of the Returning Board to these propositions In ques tion: acted whollv on his own responslbllltv. without consultation with anyone; had no au thority to act for the Democratic National Committee In tbe matter. Was shown dis patch from Tallahassee, signed "Marble," and which read as foUows: " Have just received a proposition to band over, at any hour re- quireo, a iiiaen aecision oi tne Board and cer tificate of Governor, for $300,000." Witness said the dispatch seemed to be in Marble's handwriting; knew that he received a dis patch from Marble of that tenor; declined the offer, saying tbat the amount was too high. Witness acknowledged sending a dispatch to nooiieyai i s i is nassee to tne louowing enect : "Telegram received. WU1 deposit dollars agreed. (.You) Cannot, however, draw be fore vote member received. Reply promptly." Did not consult any one In regard to It, but acted on bis own responsibility. Another dis patch dated Tallahassee, December 3d, signed " Marble," and addressed to Colonel Pelton. was then exhibited, with tbe foUowing trans lation : " Proposition received either giving vote of (one) Republican of Board, or his concurrence in court, action preventing elect or's vote from being cast,f or half hundred best up ilea states documents (lor $ou,ouo in United Btatee uotesl." Witness said be re ceived a dispatch of that character, but did not remember the exact words: had a similar dispatch from WooUey ; remember sending a reply aa foUows: " Telegram here. Proposi tion accepted if don't only once. Better con sult with WooUey and act in concert. You can trust him. Time very Im portant and there should be no di vided councils." The South Carolina dis patches were taken up, and Pelton said he re membered sending adlspatch assenting to the proposition to use $50,000. He might have asked that part of the money should be paya ble onlv after the vote was cast, but he did not remember doing so. He remembered re ceiving a dispatch from Weed to the effect that the South Carolina Returning Board de manded $75,000. The proposition was ac cepted by him, though he did not remember tne exact woras oi tneuispatcn wnicn neaent. Attention of witness was called to other dls patches, and he was asked If be bad an expla nation, ne repuea inai neuaa not, ana could hardly remember these things. He met Mr. Cooper before leaving New fork for Balti more ana toia Mm snout me weed corre epondence ; before be met Weed was fully sat isfied money would be raised, but later re ceived two telegrams, one from Cooper, and the other from tome one whose name he did not recollect, to the effect that the monev could not be raised. Witness stated that Governor TUden waa exceedingly annoyed about the matter and denounced his action very severely ; left for Baltimore without Gov ernor TUden's knowledge, and that gentleman naa no iaea oi wnat was going on; never bad any conversation with Mr. Tilden until after his, witness', return from Bsltlmore; Tliden told htm distinctly that he wanted no such work, and would sooner die than allow himself to be put into the Presidential chair under false pretences. In answer to a ques tion of Mr. Hiscock tbat whereas he. Pelton. did not have a dollar, did he want the country to believe that be made these contracts with out consulting anv leading Democrats or Gov ernor TUden, witness replied that he proposed to raise the money to be sent to Baltimore by laying the matter before the National Demo cratic tjommuiee, out ni naa no assurances tbat tbe money would be raised in tbat way. New Yobx. Feb. 7. Manton Marble appeared on the stand. He testified that be went to Florida to look after the electoral vote; did cot go under tbe specific instructions of anv one: had no con versation with Governor TUden on the mat ter; called on the Governor the evening he left ana simply bade blm good-bye; met Ran- doipn msir ana f ox on tne way, canvassea tbe matter with them, and then got tbe cipher from relton. and used it subsequently; neither sent to nor received any telegrams from Governor Tilden ; addressed his dispatches to Pelton; his object in going to Florida was to take care of the electoral vote; said the ci pher dispatches as published in the Tribune, so far as he waa concerned, were simply rubbish. Witness did not have copies of the telegrams sent from Florida; thev were published at the time, and he would prefer tbat tbe committee would take them as published. Of the dis patch from Tallahassee, Nov. 16, beginning " use 140 cipher," witness said he bad no ex planation to give, remarking : " I must con fess there are a number of dispatches cor rect." Telegrams aa ana oo were men reaa. Mr. Marble, in answer to a question by the Chairman, said the dispatches elmply Indi cated belief that they should lose both States by fraud; It was Woolley's Information, and anybody who knows him knows that he de lights In mystery; he was very apt to find some hidden thing In an affair that seemed to everybody else perfectly plain. The tele gram relating to the circulation of documents wss read in full, and as translated by witness referred to matter which the Associated Presa would receive, and which be desired to have sent over the country by that association. Tbe following telegram from Tallahassee, signed Marble, was then shown witness : " Have Just received a proposition to nana over at any hour Tilden decision of Board and certificate of Governor for $200,000." Witness said be had no recollection of this telegram, and did not think the dispatch was his; be wanted it understood tbat none of the pecuniary prop ositions were his. Other telegrams were shown witness and while be acknowl edged that the translations were sub stantially correct, they were not sent by him. In regard to the telegram pro posing to give vote of one Republican of the noara or nis concurrence in court preventing Electors' vote from being cast for "half hun dred best United Statesdocuments"(for $50,000 In United States notes) witness stated tbat he thought this was a mere device on tbe part of the Returning Board in Increasing the money on the other side; be told the members that tbe sum named was too high, and he could not possibly entertain it ; also remarked that Uovernor tilden would not listen to sucn proposition; the person who made this pro po st on was C E. Dyke, editor of the Tallahassee tionautn, a Democratic paper; torn iiyke, whether the offer was genuine or not. be him self could not consent to any such arrange ment. Other dispatches were shown witness, of some of which be had no recollection, and others he pronounced base misrepresenta tions and guess work. He had no conversa tion with Mr. Tilden before or after hla (wit ness') trip to lonaa, as to ouying out tne Electoral Board; bad no Instructions as to buying out any board. E. IX Paris was the next witness called, but his evidence was unimportant. Nxw Yobx, Feb. 8. Mr. Tilden appeared before the committee and testified In substance that he did not rec ognize a aiugle dispatch, either In cipher or translation, wnicn ne naa ever seen oeiore; never entered into any arrangement to pur chase the vote of South Carolina or Florida; had no Information or suspicion that any such communications were being carried on untU he saw the dispatches in the New York Tribune; had no knowledge or dealings with any parties to these negotia tions; never authorized any such negotiations in any form whatever. In regard to the Ore- fon dispatches witness stated tbat he did not now they came In cipher until after tbe meeting oi tne committee to investigate mem ; some of tbe dispatches were addressed to his residence, but did not know that they were ever delivered there. A day or two after tbe election General Grant wrote a letter recom mending tbat committees go South to see a I air count: had nothing to do witn tbe selection of those committees; never heard from them but once, and that waa a communication algned by Mr. utendorfer ana others: never entered into any competition for seeking certificates by venal Inducements. Witness said he first heard of the Florida bribery from Mr. Marble, who gave him no de tails ana ne (witness) made no inquiries. Mr. Tilden closed hla examinatton by aaying: " These telegrams never, with mv knowledge, came to my bouse." Tbe committee decided to examine no more witnesses and left for Washington. Care of Harness. There are few people who know how to take proper care of harness, and who understand the extent of the dam age that arises from carelessness in its use. Harness that has been exposed to a storm for hours if not rightly cleaned and hung up when it is taken off will be irreparably damaged. The Harness Journal advises every harness manu facturer to give a printed copy of rules for the preservation of the article to each purchaser, it also tnves tne ioi lowing valuable suggestions, which, if followed, will keep harness looking nice for many years: The first point to be observed is to keep tbe leather soft and pliable; this can be done only by keep ing lli well uusrgeu niui auu gtccwv, water is a destrover of these, but mud and the saline moisture from the ani mal are even more destructive. Mud in drying absorbs the grease and opens the pores of the leather, making it a ready prey to water, while the salty character of the perspiration irom tne animal injures tbe leather, stitching and mountings, it tnereiere xouows that to preserve a harness the straps should be oiled whenever it has been moistened bv sweat or soiled by mud. To do this effectually the straps should all be unbuckled and detached, then washed with a little water and good soap, then coated with a mixture of neatsfoot oil and tallow, ana oe auowea to remain undisturbed until the water has dried out; then thoroughly rubbed with a woolen rag; the rubbing is im portant, as it, in addition to removing the surplus oil and grease, tends to close the pores and gives a finish to the leather. In hanging harnesses care should be taken to allow all straps to hang their full length; bridles, pads, gig saddles and collars should be hung upon forms of the shape of each. Light is essential in the care of leather, and when the harness closet is dark the door should be left open at least half of the time during each day. All closets should be ventilated, and when possible thoy should be well lighted. To clean plated mountings use a chamois with a tripoli or rotten stone, but they should be scoured as little as possible. Rub ber covered goods are cleaned in the same way. Leather covered needs to be well brushed and rubbed with a woolen rag. If a harness is thoroughly cleaned twice a year, and when unduly exposed treated as we have recom mended, the leather will retain its soft ness and strength for many years. The editor of the Detroit Fret Press, mad because he has to work for a living, objects to honey bees laying off during the winter months, and calls for a species of bee that will work all winter and give us spring honey. It would not be in accordance with the eternal fitness of things. Leaves have their time to fall and flowers to wither at the north wind's breath, and the sea son for honey bees to get in their work is when people wear linen pants. Oil City Derrick.

Take four oups of flour. three of sugar, one of butter, three eggs, one oup of milk, one spoonful of saleratus. Baked Rick Pudding. Swell a oof- fee cup of rice, add a quart of milk, sweeten it with brown sugar, and bake it about an hour, or a little more, in a quick oven or baker. Mabboro Pie. One pint of sour ap ples stewed fine or soft, three eggs, one cup of sweet cream or milk, sugar to taste; flavor with nutmeg or lemon; cover with a good crust, Tooth Powder. Honey mixed with pure, pulverized charcoal, is said to be excellent to cleanse the teeth and make them white. Limewater, with a little Peruvian bark, is very good to be oc casionally used by those who have de fective teeth or an offensive breath. Meat Loaf. Chop fine whatever cold meat you may have, fat and lean together; add pepper and salt, one finely chopped onion, two slices of bread, which have been soaked in milk, and one egg. Mix well together and bake in a dish. This makes a nice tea or breakfast dish. Winter Food vor Hobses. Cut two-thirds of good nay, mix with one third clean straw add a small portion of meal. Moisten the whole and you have a palatable food for horses. Feed carrots mixed with oats - to beautify their coats. Occasionally give a meal of whole, not cracked corn. Potatoes at Winter. Potatoes stored in cellars, in some cases, rot, To check or prevent this, keep the cel lar as cool as possible without freezing. Then scatter quick lime over them. This is of threefold benefit, It keeps thorn from rotting, makes the potatoes dryer and better, and disinfects the at mosphere, preserving the family from malarial fevers. Indian Light Biscuit. One quart of sifted Indian meal, a pint of sifted wheat flour, a very small teaspoonf ul ot salt, three pints oi milk, lour eggs. Butter a sufficient number of cups, or small, deep tins; nearly fill them with the batter. Set them immediately into a hot oven, and bake them fast. Turn them out of the cups, send them warm to table, pull them open and eat with butter. They will puff up finely if, at tne last, you stir in a level teas poo mm of soda, melted in a uttle warm water. Washing Fluid. One pound of soda ash, one-half pound of quick lime; put six quarts of water and the ash and lime in an iron pot. Put on the stove and let it come to a boil, then take it off the stove and let it settle, then pour into jugs and cork up. Soak your clothes, put four buckets of water in your boiler and a large half-pint of the above fluid in and plenty of soap, put in vour clothes and let them boil twen ty minutes, rub a little and rinse twice. Plowing In. All vegetable sub stances rot more readily in the green state, the reason of which is that the sap or juice of the green plant begins very soon to ferment in the interior of the stem and leaves, speedily communi cating the same condition to the moist fibers of the plant itself. When once it has been dried the vegetable matter of the sap loses this easy tendency to decay, and thus admits of longer preser vation. The same rapid decay of green vegetable matter takes place when it is buried in the soiL When a grain crop is plowed into a field the whole of its surface is converted into a compost of mixed earth and fresh vegetable mat ter. The latter in a short time decays into a light, black mold, enriching the soil in a remarkable degree. Buck wheat, clover, rye and rape, if sown for the purpose oi being plowed in, should be turned under when the flower has just begun 1o open, and, if possible, at a season when the warmth of the air and the dryness of the soil are such as to facilitate decomposition. This im portant subiect of plowing in crops as manure deserves increased attention, at least among the husbandmen of our older and more exhausted sections. American Cultivator. How to Make a Meadow. Having been absent from home for some time, and having given attention to other business, I must confess negli gence in delaying writing for your val uable paper so long. Mr. W. J. Man ley asks for information as to the best mode to get a meadow for hay. I would say, if it is not convenient for him to run a smoothing harrow over the rye field in early spring, as the Rural ad vised, he can sow his timothy and clover seed on the snow about the latter part of winter. Select a time when the wind does not blow, and by sowing on a soft snow he can sow very evenly, and need no stakes. When the snow melts and the spring rains fall, they will cover the seed sufficiently, and doubtless he will get a good stand. I think no grass equal to timothy for hay, and timothy meadows are valuable for late fall and winter pasture. With timothy seed at present prices ($1.25 per bushel) it would be economy to seed down more land and raise less grain. The best piece of meadow I ever had, I prepared the ground the last ot July, sowed eight quarts timothy and half or one-third of a pint of turnip seed to the acre (one-fourth pint of turnip seed is sufficient, if it all comes.) I gathered the turnips, and the ground was green all winter. I had quite a little crop of hay the following harvest, This I think the beat way to seed, as the turnip loaves protect the young shoots of grass from the August sun, and all the small turnips left on the ground over winter aid in protecting the young grass through winter, as the leaves winter kill. I think every well improved farm should have a clover field for pasture. I have never tried anything that made so cheap a food for young stock, and no crop seeemed to enliven the soil so much as a crop of green clover, plow ed under in early autumn. I do not advocate mixing clover and timothy as some do, but for cows the clover would furnish two crops the same season; but mixing clover with timothy hay dam ages it for market, and for home use (in my estimation) clover hay should be cut as soon as the seed is wholly formed. If stacked out doors put in round stacks with rail bottoms, with three rails set in centre of stack. Set flooring at bottom and tie together at top, forming an air space through the centre. Sural World. A new kind of bug that no man knows the name of has been discov ered, during the past summer, in Wis-, cousin, that hides in the flowers and kills wasps. This wouldn't be so bad, but then it kills bees just as readily. We could even stand that, but when "it reaches out of a rose-bud and shakes hands with a man's thumb, the man thinks he has collared a reunion of all the wasps he ever knew when he was fourteen years old. This is what at tracts attention to the bug. Hawk Eye. A 81c e aator. The excessive corpulency of a certain United States Senator has long been the butt of editorial wit and spicy torn mots from the lens of Washington correspondents. Few persons have suspected that his obesity was a disease, and liable to prove fatal. Tet this Is tbe sad fact. Excessive fatness is not only a disease in itself, but one liable to generate other and more serious ones. Chemistry baa at last revealed a safe, sure, and reliable rem edy for this abnormal condition of the system In Allan's Anti-Fat. Distinguished chemists have pronounced It not only harmless, but very beneficial to tbe system, while remedying tbe diseased condition. Sold by drnggUta.
