"I hear a great deal ot talk," said old Mr. Jobllngson, as he drove out Into the country the other day in order to enjoy a lelgh ride wit i a friend, "of the decay of manners in Americans, and particularly In American youth. Now I don't take much stock in It. To be sure, when I was a boy, I was taught to say ir or madam' to every man or woman who apoke to me, and to take off. my hat to every grown person I might meet on my way to school. Nowadayt the boys aro les formal per haps, but are they les truly polite? I think not. Look at the crowd outside the school house we are just coining to.

WELLINGTON" : ENTERPRISE, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 27, 1881. AVOID THE LAV. rosalbllltles of Minnie Ileliirlrli'e Suit Aitulnst Pullman. LRoohoRtor Union and AdvoijUeor Miss Minnie Heinrich, of Minnesota, has med the Pullman Car Company for twenty five thousand dollars. 8he was traveling on a Pullman car, when a revolver dropped out of the pockot of a colored porter, struck on a cuspidore and wae discharged, the bullet entering the thigh of the young woman, who was in the toilet room comb ing out her bangs. We are sorry that Mr. Pullman did not give a check for the amount at once, as he can well afford to do, and thus put a stop to the litigation, for if the matter once gots into the courts there will be no end to it, and the poor young lady will be too old to enjoy the money before sho gots It. In tho first place the defendant will apply for a con tinuance owing to tin absence of an im portant witness, and will proceed to show Hint the Important wltnoss is a traveling man, who saw tho bullet as It sped to Its mark, nnd he is on a trip to the Pacific Bnu st, Thj court will grant the continu tnee, nn I tho girl will have to wait till tho March term of court. At that term tho traveling mnn will be on hand, but a continuance; will bo asked, ow ing to the nbs moo of anothor Important witnoss by whom fio defonso expect to prove that tho plaintiff has boon hoard to any that the bullet did not hurt her very much. 'I his witness is a girl who attended the injured young ludy, and though tho in jured lady is prepared tu demonstrate that she never said anything of tliu kind, and tlio bullet nearly killed her, tho case will bo continued till tho liovenilior term. Iiy tlio time the November term is ready, tho girl will be ready to settle for .I(l,UW, but the cuso will have to bi continued from gillie to time on account of the absence of Mr. Pullman, who has gone to Kut'ope for his health. Arhargo will about this time bo inndo in the duily papers that the woman who was shot placed herself in a position to receive tho bullet In order to bleed tiio company, having bribed tho col ored man to drop tho pistol, ami tho col ore 1 man will bo interviewed; while bo will not admit tho story to bo true, for fear of being discharge 1, ho will hint that be has beou approached, ntut public attention will begin to turn from tho plaintiff, who wishes sho had settled for jhV'M. lleforo t'te icxt term of court the Btory will havj b -en prettv gen orally circulated Unit the girl inherited a tendency to gun-shot wounds, several of her family having lio. n thus alllictoJ, and the enso will be continued on tho ground that a witnoss, who knew several of her relatives who had be -u shot, Is not to be found, liy this lime the cirl will bo old enough to bo married, and n change of venue will lie mnveil by tho .defendant on the purt of the Judge, nu I tho defendant will move for a non-suit, on tho ground that tliero is no cause of action, when it will bo ably argued that if she is ablo to got married she can not huve bren injured, and, in fact, it will bo shown that the no toriety she attained by reason ot the shot secured for her a suitor and a husband, nud tho company will put in a claim for commission on the transaction. By the tiiuo the caso enmos Into court the luw yers will have died, the Judge gone crazy, the Injured woman will lm a grandmother, the company will prove that on the day I ho accident Is alleged to have oc curred that there was no rullroad at tho place designated in the complaint, and mat mere is no surU pumou as tlio plaint iir, who is alleged to bo an unmarried young person, when the company can prove thut sho is married and a grand mother, and not the person at ail, the colored porter will have lieen gathered to his fathers, revolvers will liavo gone out .of style, and in all probability tlm Pull man Company will re-e-over a judgment against the pl.iintiiT for $ir,000 for mali cious prosecution, and she and her bus bund will have to mortgago Ibelrfarm to pay it, and do washing for the baluuce ol their natural lives to pay their attorneys. This Is about the way of such litigation these day, if Mr. Pullman will not pay thai amount (inline I by the plaintiff be should be put utiiler bonds not to get a judgment against the girl.

It. Locko, In Toledo Blade. Southerners of all classes have a most delightfully absurd lova for titles--civ11 nnd military but they are not con'orred upon atrangeri Indiscriminately. For Loulsvllllau to Introduce his friend from abroad by the simple title of "Mister" would be to bell'ilu himself, for, as a mnn is known by the compuny he keeps, tho nioro distinguished his friends the moro oleva'cd his own position. To have a Colo nel lor a friend is to reflect glory upon himself, and, 1 1 a lessor degree, the fri jnd' shlo of a Judge or Governor. Hut, as I said, they do no', throw titles nbnut indiscriminately. They havo a sys tem In 1 . Are you tioan-sbnven, or with simple si le-whiskers without mustache? You aro Introduced by your Kentucky friond as "Judge" uo-and-so, a beard being considered as an especial appendage to tho milit.uy profession, and a shaven face ossential to tho bench. On tho otiier hand, If you wear a beard with u mustache, a military titlo is given you. Tho rank you occupy depends largely up in the time of night. Tims, before tho ilin. regular drink, you aro introduced as "Captain;" tlio second promotes you to "Mnj.ir;" t iu third to "Cunnol," and th fourth to 'UcnernVmid you would keep on were therj higher titles.

As the convivial glass passes by tho way liquor lakes on tho appearance too much of a neeeisi'y here to be consll ero l us a promoter of conviviality merely yoa are promoted tho same way.

Further than that ba was hoarding his present resources somo where, no one had his confidence sufficient ly to form the least conjecture whore. Years ago he appeared to form a strong attnchinont for a young lady who was be lieved to reciprocate the feeling toward mm. l lungs wont ou smoothly for a tlm , wnon she suddenly sickene 1 and died, urn dor circumstances ra'-ber adverse to her physician lover. A few years later be app-ared to concontrato his affections on another, and for awhile this courtship, a matter of common knowledge, was un rufll.nl, apparently. After the lapse ol some time, during which the couplo wert very otteu seen out together, a blight seemed to have fallen in some way on thorn, and very rurely has the lady been seen outside her house slice u mutter ol twenty-live years uud never in the com pany of the doctor. All the while, al though he utii'le his n miiiul boiir.liiig- piuc i at Her hull le, he inis lod-ed nl liiselllrt in a back ro n, taking his in-uls with this lady until within a few yeurs, when Uo lias breakfasted and supped olf crac ers, choose, etc., at his olllee, continuing to l.iku his dinners at the lu ly's table. The singularity of this created no little comment lor a long time, but as people be came more accustomed to it and his grow ing miserliness in other ways, it censed to b not ice 1, J ho doctor was always a great rjud.T, which ho dl l not give up, while growing all the while more and more recluse, depending on a seat and newspaper buck of one of the village stores, and the libraries ot old acquaint- oilers lor information on dally news and mutters pertaining to bis proiesslou, which he dll not neglect eituur in study or prac tice. 11 s habits were very simple and his vices iio-niii.il. Ho was very fond of to bacco couid he have obtained it without cost. Yet while ho sc irned to beg it or oilier necessities or luxuries, he contented himself with the smallest indulgeiic-. Not exactly relishing a pipe, in which he smoked only the cheapest tobacco, lie Anal ly abandoned it, huving found a brand of cigars wi leii seemed to suit him, made ot the vilest weel obtainable, at the rule of two cents e.ic.i. Five of these sutllced him for a week, which, with a ticket to an oc casional circus, for which he had a singu lar fancy, were all the luxuries he would allow himself. When last seen on the streets his condition for want of clothing would have entitled him to the charity of the poorest tramp. On finding him almost lifeless In bis cheerless room, and remov ing bis threadbare clothing, which waa literally alive with vermin, as was the old lounge on which he slept, great was the surprise on discovering an old dirty pouch strapped about bis neck, In which was nearly $11,000 In bank bills, while in a pursu in his trc users pocket was another 1,000. About the entire rooms were evidences of the most pinching want, the remains of a bag ot crackers, well nibbled by mice, showing what had been his fare. Overhead, on its familiar place. stood a stuffed owl, a souvenir of other and better days, which, on bolng taken down as a matter ot curiosity,- was found to be literally stuffed with silver half-dollars. In another place hung a monster hornets' nest, the old doctor's especial pride. Years ago this was given him by a farmer friend In town, and on account ot Its remarkable else was made the subloct of many a newspaper article. .This, too, waa found to be stuffed with money. The aggregate of the old man's wealth in stocks, bank-books, bills and silver is vari ously estimated at from $70,000 to $80,000. Regarding the pouch found on his per son, all now recall a habit of his, which was sometimes remarked tn the past, of frequently putting his hands behind him when out of doors, invariably dolni so when leaving a store, bouse, or after stop ping to talk with a person on the street I Among the young portion of the commu nity be had become more and more unpopu- ar, as nis eccentric manners became more and more the butt of their mischievous pranks, which Jie took to heart Intensely.
