JAMES HAREBELL'S SONG.
O, there tbove, yon heather hill,
Where footfa' oomei but rarely.
There Is a house they point out (till.
Where dwelt the man o' Alrlle.
He wore a ooat o' hodden gray,
Hli hand was bard wl' labor)
Rut itlll be had a harmless way
O' ataudln' by hia neighbor.
His burly langh made men rejoloe,
HI. words the neighbors guided;
But little balrulea loved bli voloe '
And in bis au lie ronflded:
The word, to-day, that left hi Up,
Became a deed to-morrow,
Hoot mau, the friendship o' hit grip,
Would lift the heart o' sorrow.
Be waa na' loud, he waa na' proud,
'He lacked in learnln' aairly
And yet ye' pick him frae a crowd,
The honest man o' Alrlle.
His wealth, It waa na' in his land,
It was na' in the city ;
A mlnto' honor waa hli hand,
Hia heart a mine o' pity
He'a dead and gane, this prince o' Fife,
Mute Is hia burly laughter,
But ah 1 the music o' his life ,
That bides wl' us lang after,
His memory lives, the man may die,
That lingers bright and lovln',
Just like a star lout frae the sky
Whose ray survives his ruin,
CHORUS.
0 up and down an' roun an' roun,
And o'er the 'hale world fairly,
Ye might hae searched but never foun'
Anlther Man o' Alrlle.
The following lyric gem in the Nuricry U from
lite pen of Laura E. Richards:
BOBB1LY BOO AND WOLLYPOTDMP.
Bobblly-boo, the King so free,
He used to drink the Mango tea ;
Mango let and coffee, too
He drank them both till his nose waa blue.
Wollypotump. the Queen so high,
She used to eat the dumbo pie;
flu ii bo pie and Gumbo cake
She ate them both till her teeth did break.
Bobblly-Boo and Wollypolump,
lach called the other a greedy frump;
And when these terrible words were said,
They sat and cried till they both were dead.
CHORUS. Miscellaneous.
HOUSE OF THE JAMES
BOYS IN BLAIR COUNTY, MO.
An Impregnable Cabin in the Midst
of Woods—The Midnight Assault
by Detectives—Why the Bandits
Went to Northfield.
[From the Chicago Times.]
KANSAS CITY, Mo., Oct. 15, 1876.
Becently I visited the home of I he
James boys a farm honne in Blair coun
ty, about three miles from Kearney, an
obscure station on the line of the Hanni
bal and St. Joseph Railroad, situated on
an open lot of a few acres, around which
the forest trees grow in abundance. Built
of Ions, the house is iuipreg able if an
attack is made upon it. Mrs. Samuels
the mother of the. boys, with a son and
her husband, Dj. fcamuel, reside here
They mingle little with the outNide world,
and dislike to rrake acquaintances
Knowing the desperate cnarHcler of the
"boys" as they are familiarly known
the neighbors prefer to leave these peo
ple alone, and m the farm is seldo.n vis
ited by any but the family.
When I entered the house, in company
with an old gentleman well-known to
the family, I tlrst mtt the wife ( f Jesse
James, who had come over from Kansas
CHy that day. Of course I was curious
to see a young woman who could delib
erately join her fortunes through life
with a desperado, who is charged with
a desperado, who is charged with more
crimes, and greater ones than any crimi
nal of the present day.
She is not handsome. Of ruther grace
ful figure, her features are irregular, her
mouth large, and her general appearance
tbat of a woman from the lower walkB of
life, Bhe was not iiitrojneed as Mrs,
James. Her connection with Jest-eshe
endeavors to keep a secret, hut I whs in
formed of her marrhige when it occurred.
Bhe bud little to say in the convetsaiiou
that ensued between Mrs. .Samuels and
her visitors, and alter a few moments
withdrew from the room.
Mrs. Samuels, the mother of the high
waymen, proved to be an exceedingly
intelligent old lady, who talked freely of
everj subject but her hiiis, and where
they were, and insists that the persecu
tion they and the family sufleied during
the war is the cause of their being out
laws. Bhe declared thai if they could
have a fair impartial trial they would
gladly give themselves up and let the law
take us course, knowing their innocence.
Exposing the stump of her arm, and
with blazing eyes, sue wen ton to tell me
how her little son was murdered in a
cowardly attempt to capture Jesse, when
he was not in the house at aril. ''The
detectives thrtw a baud grenade into the
boose that awful night, wtieu we were all
asleep, and it exploded, killing my dar
ling and shattering my arm. The cow
ards fired upon us, and then fled, escaping
under cover of darkness. The murder
of that boy, and the loss of my arm, will
be avenged some of these days, as cer
tain as my boys are living."
I could get her to talk of nothing else,
and she grew very violent asshe thought
of her little boy who was killed, as she
said.
The house is constructed like old-fashioned
block houses, small holes being left
through the logs, out of which guns can
be fired at an attacking party; it would
be dangerous to tackle the buys inside
of this dwelling and some oloody work
wonld be sure 10 follow.
Tne friends of the James boys and
they have many through this section
art delighted at their escape from Min
nesota. They repeat, with evident pride,
that the Jameses can never be caught like
the Youiigert were alive. They will
fight as lontf life lasts, tbey Bay.
I have described the house ol the James
boys, now let tne telL you something
about the Youngers.
Tuere are hundreds of people in this
county who remember these boys us
peaceable industrious farmer lads. The
war came aud they were turned iuto
fiends by carnage and bloodshed. Their
borne was broken up, lather killed, and
many of their relatives sent over the river
nev-r to return, Thoee were terrible
times, and for what the Younger boys
Coa durius the war they bad a good ex
cose. Bui their record since the advent
of peace has been so black as to lace
very mau a baud against them.
The home of Cole Youiier. after the
, war, wt8 with his widowed mother ou a
farm, near Lee s Bummit. in this county
He was a quiet felmw, and settled down
to work ait though he intended to be a
nraight forward man from tbat lime on

wai considered a bad man. Wherever
he went In those days, even thoigh the
war aud its troubles were over, he car
ried a pair of navy revolvers, and he
would not hesitate to use them either.
His reputation was that of a desperado,
without the generous nature of those
dashing knights of the road, and who
would shoot as quick as he would drink.
In m, a bank in Russellville, Ky., was
robbed in daylight of ILU.OOO. The news
spread like wildfire over the entire coun
try. It came to Lee'a Summit, and crea
ted considerable, comment. A vigilance
comittee took the matterurider consider
ation, and without suspecting either Jar
rett or Cole Younger, wrote the bank of
ficers for a description of the men. It
resulted in establishing the fact that three
of their own citizens were concerned in
the robbery, being no others than Cole
Younner. John Jarrett and Al. Shepard.
Neither Jarrett or Shepard ever came
back, but Cole lounger appeared and
admitted that he was guilty. This out
lawed him from society, and after a visit
or two, he too, disappeared, His crimes
since that time are familiar to every one.
But this was his first bank robbery, his
first deliberate crime, and his relatives
lay it at the door of this man Jarrett.
The Jameses have been by far the worst
of the gang, never caring whether they
murdered or not. But their time has
come. Frank is in the hands of the law.
and it will not be long before Jesee will
be taken.
Their career has been a successful one,
and they bad become a terror in this
State. The real cause oi ine roDDers go
inor to Minnesota has never been told,
When the detectives made the raid on
Mrs. Samuels' house they consulted an
attorney atLibertv a town near by and
he furnished them assistance. The James
boys found this out, and for fear of his

Kansas City, Oct. 17. All parties who
know the James boys in this vicinity de
clare that the prisoner at St. Louis is not
Frank James. Mrs. Samuels, the mother
of the boys, told a relative here not to be
alarmed; that frank and Jesse weresaie.
A telegram has juBt been received from

THEIR FIRST BANK ROBBERY AND PERHAPS
THEIR FIRST MURDER,
[From the Boonville Advertiser.]
Li vini! in Kansas City, a respected and
wealthy merchant, ie Mr. Greenup Bird,
an old resident of Missouri and oneof the
best men in the State. In 1866 he was a
hanker at Liberty, Clay county, a town
not ten miles from t'lehome of the James
hoys. One day while he and his son
William were alone in the bank, three
strange men entered and asked him to
change a ten dollar note, lie took tne
hill and stepped to a side table to procure
the change, and on bis return was met
with a revolver presented to his face. He
realized at once that he was in the power
of men who would not hesitate a mo
meat to take his life if necessary. What
followed can be told almost in a word.
The robbers leaped over the counter, and
w''ile Mr. Bird and his son were guarded
y one the others secured one thousand
lollain from the vault, the door of which
unfortunately was standing open. The
banker and his son were then hastily
thrust into the vault, and the door closed.
The robbers then fled, mounting their
horses, which were in charge of associ
ates on the Htreet. They dashed down
the principal street of the town, the peo
ple Iniikint! on in wonder, not knowing
what had been done. The younger Mr.
Bird succeeded in opening the door of the
vault, and rushing to the window he gave
the alarm in time for a citizen to draw a
revolver and fire at the retreating rob
bers. Unlucky shot for him; the robber
turning in his saddle, and taking deadly
aim, sent a ball through the brain of the
man who had missed his mark. Out of
the town they went without further mo
lestation. But the James boysand Younger broth
ers were unknown as dashing liighway
men in those days, and a party immedi
ately started in pursuit. They chased
them to the Missouri river and there
overtook them. A running fight ensued,
but the robbers escaped, and from that
time forward until they murdered the
cashier of the Northfleld bank, followed
their daring calling with success.
LATEST FROM THE ICEBERGS.
The opinion prevails that the late Brit
ish Polar expedition has been a practical
failute. Dr. Isaac Hayes stops in the
midst of his busy life, in New York, to
say that such is the case, and as a veter
an Arctic explorer he should know
whereof he speaks. The commander of
the expedition, Captain Nares, is also
ready to confess his inability to prove
his belief in an open Polar sea, although
his expeditionary campaign succeeded in
passing the furthest points reached by
either Hayes, Hall or any other expiorer
of the region.
The expedition of Captain Nares was
supported by all that money and scien
tific ingenuity cou'd suggest. Men. ves
sels, equipments, provisions and all the
aDDarutus for nushing aeaiust the obsta
cles surrounding the way, were of the
best quality.. No Polar expedition ever
started out so well equipped, and in con
sideration of these things the work done
would seem to be little as compared with
that achieved by the earlier explorers.
who prosecuted their tasks surrounded
by such obstacles as scanty equipments,
eak vessels and wants of pecuniary as
sistance at the outset.
The chief benefit which promises to
arise from Captain Nares' recent effort to
discover the great "Northern Passage," is
1 . ! . li 1 I
ine coninouiion oi inn cotutwiae Knowl
edge which he will make for the use of'
geographers and future expeditions, the
tracing of these coast lines for 220 mileB
to the west of Greenland and a consider
able distance to the east, in all probabil
ity one-fifth of the circumference of tbe
rim of the Polar Unknown, being espec
ially valuable.
Captain Nares also discovered that at
the eighty-second parallel all animal life
and the migration of birds ceased, thus
proving, as be says, the "impracticability
of continuing an effort to reach the pole."
8o the frozen zone still holds its secret.
Seventy years of Arctic navigation and
ine expenditure oi mniionsoi aonars anu
hundreds o lives, have resulted in a total
advance of only 110 miles in the desired
direction, leaving thecoveted North Pole
nearly five hundred miles away; and tbe
latest expedition is pronounced a failure,
Why, then, not resign the world's great
ice house to its own cold-hearted Bel?
A WASTED LIFE.
"Brutus Blinkenberry," said that gen
tleman's wife, drawing a paper from her
pocket in tbe privacy of tne chamber on
Sunday morning, ''Brutus Blinkenbeny,
I've counted, and out oi the last thirty
days you have come home intoxicated
twenty-sevm nights ; What do you think
of yoursell ?"
Blinkenberry groaned. ; '
"Well, what are you groaning about

"ROSE MICHEL."
The story of the play as presented is
as follows: Louise Michel, the daughter
of Rose and Pierre Michel, is an appren
tice In the employ of Master Bernard, a
wood engrayei, with whom she is l'ving.
Andre Bernard, the boo of Bernard, is
her lover. Tbe two young people have
formed a most ardent attachment, and
the motherof Louise and Master Bernard
have favored it. The father of Louise is
a miser and brute, and is despised both
by wife and daughter. Early in the play
Bernard signifies to Rose Michel hia in
tention of consenting to the union of the
young people, but couples bis consent
with certain conditions which relate to
the stainless character of Louise's family,
He emphasizes this point, and declares
that he will never consent to tbe anion
of his son with the member of any fami
ly which has the slightest stain upon its
honor. Rose Michel assures him of the
spotless character of her husband, and
there appears to be no obstacle in the
way of the lovers. When Rose Michei
returns to her husband to tell him of the
good news which she has learned from
Bernard, she finds to her surprise and
horror that her avaricious husband has
already agreed to .sell his child to the
Baron de Bellevie, a libertine. A quar
rel ensnes between Pierre and his wife,
during which Pierre, realizing that his
wife's opposition will create insurmount
able obstacles to the consummation of
his schemes, suddenly conceives the idea
of murdering the Baron in order to se
cure the large sum of money which he
knows he will have upon his person. He
promises his wife to break his promise
to the Baron, and succeeds, as he suppo
ses, in getting her off to bed. Immedi
ately thereafter the Baron arrives with
100,000 livres upon his person, which
have been paid him by the Count de
Vernay upon condition thathe will leave
France forever, and never again seek to
see his wife, who is now living under the
protection of the Count,
This libertine, De Bellovie, having
seen Louise, and fallen passionately in
love with her, has already offered the
father an enormous sum of money to be
permitted to carry Louise with him to a
foreign land, there to make her in name
his wife, but in fact his mistress. He is
now present to pay Pierre his money and
take possession of Louise. Pierre prom
ises that Louise shall be ready to go with
bim in the morning.
The Baron, being wet and fatigued,
calls for a glass of punch, which Pierre
drugs and offers him. Under its effects
the Baron is put asleen, and Pierre pro
ceeds coolly to make preparations for his
murder. While he is committing the
act be is discovered by his wife Rose,
and horror-struck, she falls senseless to
the ground. Startled by her cries, Pierre
rushes iuto the room, discovers her pres
ence, and is about to drag her to her
chamber, wheu she revives and accuses
him with terrible fierceness of the mur
der.
Pierre, seeing that Bhe is determined
to denounce him, is about to kill tier also
when they are both startled by knocks
at the door, and the voice of Louise out
side calling. "Mother, mother." Bernard
having heard that Pierre proposed to sell
Louise into degration, comes with his son
Atidre and the Baron de Marsan, Prefect
of the Seine, to demand an explanation.
iietore admitting them, 1 lerre makes Ins
wile realize that to denounce him would
be to destroy the future of her own
daughter, and perhaps to kill her. He
then leaves her to open the outer gale,
Buying, ' denounce me it you dare.
While he is gone Rose resolves to betray
her husband's guilt, but when her inno
cent daughter ei.ters, her resolution is
overcome by the strength of her mater
nal love. Pierre assures the Prefect tbat
he never intended to sell his child, but
that he gladly bestows her upcnBernaru's
son. Afwr they are gone Pierre throwB
the body of Baron de Bclleviu into tbe
river-that flows beneath the window of
his house.
Rose Michel, knowing the guilt of her
husband, forces him to give up to her the
money which he has taken from the Ba
ron's body, and with it she goes to the
house of the Count de Vernay, where
she secretly places it in the Count's sec
retary, leeltng that as the money came
from him it should return to him. Tbe
body of the Baron de Bellevie is discov
ered, and the Count de Vernay accused
of his murder. Tbe circumstantial evi
dence against bim is rendered overwhel
ming by the discovery in the secretary of
the wallet of the Baron containing the
money which he ' had previously paid
him. Rose Michel, horrified at finding
an innocent man accused, behaves so
strangely as to excite the suspicions of
tbe Count de Marsan, who becomes con
vinced that Bhe knows more than she is
willing to tell of the murder. This indu
ces bim to go with the Count's mother to
the inn of Pierre Michel, where he ex
amines Pierre, bis servant Mouliuet and
Rose herself. Her suspicions are con
firmed, and, after endeavoring by all fair
means to induce Rose to tell the truth,
he at last resorts to the extremest meas
ure and condemns her to tbe rack. In
the last act we learn tbat toiture has
been ineffectual, Rose's love for her child
enabling her to conceal the truth. The
Count de Vernay is condemned to die,
and is to be executed at dawn, but he
has one last interview with Rose, who
has partially recovered from tbe effects
of the torture. Finding all appeals fruit
less, and believing De Vernay innocent,
De Marsan determines at the last mo
ment that the Count must escape.
Rose pledges her life to the effort, and
secures the services of her husband, sup
posing, as she does, that he will only be
too glad to save his second victim.
Bui Pierre, fearing that if tbe Count es
capes he will leave nothing undone to
discover the real culprit and thus clear
bis own name, betrays tbe plot to the
guard; and just as the Count is about to
leave the prison tie is arrested, aud Rose
discovering her husband's treachery, de
nounces him in a moment of supreme
agony, thus saving the life of the Count,
Tbey are about to arrest Pierre, when he
breaking through the guard, is about to
fly, but is shot by the guard and falls
over the parapet of tbe prison, The
Count de Vernay, touched by the hero
ism of Rose, and grateful for her ti jiely
aid, makes an appeal to Bernard which
induces hiii to consent to the marriage
of his son with Ross's daughter.
BOSS SHEPHERD'S CONTRACTS.
BOSS SHEPHERD'S CONTRACTS. The Man Who Used to Sell Pies in the Post
Office Tells and Interesting Story.
Tbe Hon. Pat O. Hawes was then in
troduced, and made a ten minutes speech
which will not soon be forgotten. The
only pity is tbat it was net given in the
opening of the Presidential campaign.
Pat said that in July, 1872, he received
a letter (which he read) from P. W.
Hitchcock, who was then io Omaha,
while he (Pat) was in Washington, ask
ing him to go to the National Central
Committee and get soma money with
which to ran tho campaign in Nebraska.
Pat went to the committee, but they
would give bim no money; saying mat
Nebraska was all right, and would go
Republican anyhow Pat then wrote
back to Hitchcock and told him the re
sult, but also said that if be .Hitchcock
would get him a contract from Boss
Shepherd for street paving, he would get
all the money he wanted. He said that
within four days Hitchcock was in Wash
ington, and Pat had gone up to New
York.. There begot notice from Shep
herd that a contract for 17,000 vards of
wood pavement was awarded to him.
At this announcement there was tre
mendous yelling and laughter. Pat
turned around and said totto voce.; What
the h 1 are you laughing about? I don't
see anything so funny." Pat then went
on to say that he went down to Wash
ington and presented himself to Boss
Shepherd. There he found a lot of oth
er fellows, all getting contracts, like
himself, and some of them, like himself,
didn't know hovfr they got them.
Well, Gov. Shepherd presented him
with his contract, and he told him he
would commence work next day, and
started out. Then a chap came up and
presented bim his card, and wanted to
know what be would take for his con
tract. "Well," said Pat, "1 never laid
any wood pavements, and I don't know
anything about what it is worth."
At this announcement there was an
awful uproar of laughing and . veiling,
which lasted several minutes. After si
lence was restored, Pat went on to say
that the fellow pressed the matter, and
told him that the usual figure was $2.25
per yard, besides some other little per
quisites; and then offered him $2,000 for
his contract. So Pat concluded he would
sell, and that same day the fellow paid
him over the money, lie stated that his
instructions from Hitchcock were to send
half the money to Yost and half to Cun
ningham, and that same day (Sept. 5th)
he sent two drafts to Yost, $800 and $200
respectively, and similar drafts to Cun
ningham About the end of September he receiv
ed a letter from" Hitchcock in Chicago for
Pat to go to New York and get some
more money, referring hin to Senators
Harlan and EdmunHs. These latter re-
fiian.l tn "i-nrnft rlnwn " nn l.hp ffronnd
that no money was needed in Nebraska.
So Pat said that something must De none
and h tnlil them n crreat cock-and-bull
story about the actions of Tipton, who,
he claimed, was carrying the State for
Greeley. So they made a check for $2
000, payable to Pat O. Hawes.
RECKLESSNESS WITH RIFLES.
A Remarkably Skillful and Perilous Peformance
in Markmanship.
Two brothers named Watson have
been giving r-markable exhibitions of
foolhardiness and skill in Tony Pastor's
Theatre. They are billed as "noted
Western scouts and sharpshooters," and
have the look oi frontiersmen. They
begin by displaying rifles, and shooting
bullets through blocks of wood, to prove
that the ammunition and missies are
genuine. On both Bides of the stage,
close to the front, thick wooden pads are
placed for the bullets to lodge in. At
the beginning of the display of marks
manship one man holds an apple ir. his
fingers and the other shoots a ball through
it from across the stage; and next the
man who has risked his fingers becomes
the shooter in a repetition of the feat..
Each in t'ini bits the bull's-eye of a tar
get ten times without a missjhe bull's-
eye being just above the head of the man
who holds the apple. A potato is placed
on one's head and shot off by the other,
the potato being split to pieces, and the
bullet entering the pad in front ot which
the holder stands. This feat is repeated
many times, the brothers changing atti
tudes and holding the rifle in positions
seemingly awkward enough to increase
the peril. The brothers wheel quickly
and shoot potatoes simultaneously off
each t ther's heads.
Tbe brothers, who profess to have ac
quired their skill by long practice on the
plains, use breech-loading nnes, and
handle them with wonderful quickness.
The younger seems to be the best marks
manat least he fires quickest after get
ting his weapon up to aim, and rarely
tails to hit. The older sometimes miss

A FRAUD THAT CENTENNIAL DIX
WINKED AT.
Mr. Peter A. Dey was the engineer
who surveyed and located the first hun
dred miles of the road (the Union Pacif
ic). He estimated its cost at not over
$30,000 a mile. When this estimate was
shown to the directors it was returned to
him with orders to retouch it with high
er colors, to put in embankments on pa
per where none existed on earth, to
make the old embankments heavier, and
to increase the expense generally; and
then he was requested to send in his es
timate that it would cost $50,000 a mile.
When Mr. Dey found that this part of
the road was to be let to Hoxie at $50,000
per mile, for work which he knew could
be done for $30,000 this difference of
$20,000 a mile amounting to $2,000,000
on the first hundred miles, and to $5,000
000 on the two hundred and forty-six
miles he tesigned his position as chief
engineer, with a noble letter to John A.
LMx, President of tbe road. He closed
tbat letter thus:
"My views of the Pacific road are, per
haps, peculiar. T look upon its mana
gers as trustees of the bounty of Congress.
" w w xou are doubtless informed
bow disproportioned the amount to be
paid is to the work contracted for I
need not expatiate on the sincerity of
my course, when you reflect upon the
fact that I have resigned the best posi
tion in my profession this country has
offered to any maul"
The astronomers of Europe are just
now excited by the re-discovery of Le
verrier's planet, Vulcan, Some twenty
years ago the great French astronomer
announced that certain perturbations in
the orbit of Mercury could only be ac
counted for by the existence of another
planet still nearer the sun ; even as the
perturbations of Saturn had enabled him
to discover the planet Neptune. Within
three years after Leverrier's announce
ment a French observer, Dr. Lescarbao.it,
detected Vulcan in his transit across the
sun's disk ; but inasmuch as he has not
been seen again since then, mostsavans
have begun to doubt whether he was
seen at all. But the latest Parisian jour
nals inform ns that two eminent astron
omers at the Observatory in that city
M. Porroand M. Wolf of Zurich have
just found Vulcan during his transit as
before It is not sta'ed whether their
observations were sufficient for the pre
cise calculation of tbe elements of the
planet. Kepler's law. however, would
reduce the time of Vulcan's revolution
around the sun to about a month. This
youngest of the planets must swim in a
sea of almost unimaginable light and
heat, and be uninhabitable by any form
of life known to as.
