There's a beautiful tons on the slumberous
That drifts through the Taller of dreams;
Iteomes from aeliiue where tne roses were,
And a tuneful heart and bright brown hair
That wared in the morning beams.
Soft eyes of azure and eyes of brown.
And snow-white foreheads are there;
A glimmering Cross and a glittering Crown,
A thorny bed and a couch of dowa.
Lost hopes and leaflets of prayer.
A rosy leaf ia a dimpled hand,
A riag and a slighted tow; -Threegoldea
rings an a broken band,
A tinr track on the snow-white sand,
A tear aad a sinless brow..
There's a tincture of grief in the beautiful
song . - ,

Aad loneliness felt in tbe-Sestire thronr "
Sinks down in tne soul as it trembles along-

'And it mingles with the saarin chimes.

And its melody Howe h far away, 6 . .

ONCE AND AGAIN.
BY A. G.
Toong Underwood has been here and
left that boqnet for yoo, Maggie." ,
While making tills comronnlcation
Mrs. Carpenter watched her daughter's
face anxiausly, to discern Its effect. But
Haggle neither smiled or blushed; and
aa ber mother was not quick to read
faces, she' was puzzled by the expres
sion of the sweet face that bent over the
flowers. x -,
"Mother," said the girl presently, "I
sbonld like to go te Aunt Jane's to
spend a week, if you feel well enough
to spare eie." o 1 ":."7 G VI
"Why, Maggie !" her mother exclaim
ed, "and miss the Bank's party and the
shore picnic! I thought yon had prom'
ised young Underwood to go to both
Yes, I know it," said Maggie, indif
ferently, "but I am tired out with such
things, aad want a little quiet." .
My dear child," said the querulous
invalid, in an excited tone, "if you are
to be sick, I don't know what I shall
do. I am sure yon are coming down
with s slow fever, or you would never
talk of getting weary of young folks'
Xo, no, mamma," said the girl, reck
ing impatiently, "don't begin to imag
ine and fret. I am not sick, nor going
to be." Then, seeing by her mother's
face that more questions were coming,
she stopped them to say abrubtly, with
a faint blush, "I want to get away from
Charlie Underwood. Why, mamma?
Because he is getting to think too much
of me, and I like him too well to want
the bitterness of a refusal between us."
"My dear, if you like him so well'
"Mamma," she said, springing up,
"you don't understand. Can't a girl
love a man welt' enough to die for him
and not well enough to marry him 1 1
can." . i- - -
After her daughter had left the room,
Mrs. Carpenter sighed a little, thinking
how her own.wedded misery bad prob
ably marked tbe girl with a horror of
marriage; ami then she smiled a little
at the child's thinking that a week's
absence could prevent the "bitterness of
a refusal coming between them."
I Sunday at Aunt Jane's, even at ll a.
m., promised to be a long day, and wben
Maggie came slowly, down the broad
staircase, saw "Young Underwood," as
her nioiher called him, 'Dr. Underwood'
as she called him, or Charlie, as she
thought of him, standing before the
open door with outstretched bands, she
could no more help springing down the
last two steps, and smiling welcome,
then she could help blushing at the
looks with which he answered hers.
It was so pleasant to have him want her
enough to come so far, that with an in
stinct for preserving her happiness, she
put back tbe thought of 'what it meant.'
But as they sat in the vine-covered
porch together, the young man's eager
tones and excited eyes, and the danger
ous conversational ground he ventured
on, made her wonder at herself for al
lowing their meeting to be what it had
been, in spite of tbe good resolutions
which had brought her there. She was
obliged to exert all her qaick wittedness
to keep away from the fatal topics. It
was close sailing. If she were merry,
he was more so, and began - to compli
ment her alarmingly. If she grew sad,
he grew tender. If she frowned er
even. looked cold, he seemed about to
make some desperate move ; so she was
much relieved when he at last perceived
her weary looks and asked if she was
atck.'' To which question, put with al
most ludricrous anxiety, she answered
with studied coolness," "No; but I am
very tired ; I came down for rest."
'. Ou tills, the doctor rose quickly, quite
hurt and embarrassed, and apologized
for his km g stay. He stopped, however,
at the foot of the. steps, and plucking
nervously at the vine - leaves, asked
stiffly il a short call that evening would
be too great a weariness te'her.'
How well she would like to have said,
"Do come, Charlie; I am always hap
pier for your company,?, 'What s pity
friendship cannot be,' she sighed to her
self, as she answered with much show
of polite indifference, "I shall be happy
to Bee you, sir," and then added, earn
estly, "if you will be content with a
quiet, perhaps dull, venhig, audi not
talk on exciting topics," and then,
laughing, "nor expect me to be respon
sive or entertaining."
i jCharles Underwood , walked slowly
and musingly. 'What could she mean
by exciting topics? I wanted to tell her
I loved her, to-night. But I suppose I
must walt,V Perhaps she knows it. I
should thiu k she would. A fellow can't
haye on much steam as I have without
blowing the whistle occasionally What
if she shouldn't and ho thought, tuo'
but half expressed, made "him stop with
a set, troubled look In bis eyes; but he
continued to himself, smiling as the
memory came, 'how bcautilul she met
me this morning! Such a smile! By
Jove! I almost kissed her. She drew
off with a little scared look just in
Tbat evening Maggie met him at the
gate with the proposal to go rowing on
tbe little like, a few rods distant. The
late sunlight made darker tilings gold'
en than Maggie's curls, as it slanted
over the still water and darted over the
broad shoulders of the oarsman, who
pulled fast when he felt inclined to
broach forbidden "topics." The two
talked with the ease of old friends
while the sunlight lasted, and snnk in
to easy silence when It faded." At last,
the long quiet was broken by the young
man asking after Maggie's comfort, as
the air grew chill. She answered, un
guardedly, 'I am very comfortable,
thank you;, but It Is too bad to let you
do all the rowing."
The quick answer was, "I should be
auite content to do all tb rewire, Mag
gie, if I might always haw you in my
boat,"' . ' . ,r,i .
Marguerite could here bis quick
breath, could feel his heart beating
strong, felt a miserable sense that she
must hurt the heart that loved ber.
Words would not come ; aH she thought
of teemed too harsh. Looking op at
last, with a senseless inijnet of look
ing for a way of escape.' she met his
eyes... She felt as if she were-putting
them out when she said slowly: ' -
""o, Charlie, that woofd not be fair,
and we could never row together.''
The poor fellow, dropped bis oars,
and covered bis face with that strange
Instinct which we all possess of hiding
the expression of pain on the face trom
every one. . Ttsey unnea a few mo
ments in silence then Marguerite said,
"You can row very well without me,
Charliei take-up the oaat." - - ....
"I can't," be said, hoarsely ; and then
bending forward to see her face in the
darkness, he began to pour out the heart
full of love which not even bis pride
could keep back. '
She shrank from him crying, "Don't,
don't! Why, will you torture us both
for bo good ?"...,
"Both ?" he repeated eagerly.
"Yes," she said, "for I love yon. so
well" be grasped her hand, which
she drew away quickly, looking at him
steadily tbe while ' and repeating, "I
love yon so well that it almost breaks
my heart to have yon expect more of
me than I can give, or be disappointed
in my heart." ,
"You said," he murmured, "that
that you loved me."
"I do, but not enough," she said,
He took np the oars and rowed with
desperate rapidity. When he helped
her from tbe boat he felt ber hand trenv
blc and held it tight, while he asked,
"No repeal," she said.
The boat darted from tbe shore, and
Marguerite watched him in It half the
night, but with her light out, lest be
shop Id see it.
Seeing her white face in the glass next
morning, she smiled sadly, "I guess he
will get over it 11 ret, after all," and wip-
ping away a few hot tears with the face
towel, sighing, "I have lost my dearest
friend." . - .
Poor bird, trying to fly with a bro
ken wing! She was wounded, but not
conquered. She eouid not give up all
to ber love, and her love would not give
np all to ber, and so there was nothing
to do but to get over it, as she said to
herself, with great show of bravery.
... . . . .
Five years passed, and Marguerite
Carpenter began to confess that getting
over it was nam wort, me ueau
friendship showed signs of resurrec
tion in a more glorious form; but Char
lie was not there. Her home had been
in Florida since her mother's death,
where her father had large orange
groves. - He never could get tier to
wear the flowers in her hair; she said
it made her sick; so it did at heart.
When she took the fever her father was
anxious, but she only said, "I shall get
over it." One day lie came in, looking
very happy and shouted at ber, "Good
news my dear; real providence. I
met Dr. Underwood on my way to Au

have yon about in no time; he has had
great luck, he telle me, in such eases.
His coming has saved us the week it
would take to get some one from Augus

"Oh, no, don't" she replied, tremb
ling. I can't see him. I'd rather wait
till you go to Augusta. I'm not very
sick. Please don't bring bim here"
Well !" interrupted her father, testi
ly, "what ridiculous talk is this Not
see him? What's got into my sensible
girl's head ? You needn't be afraid of a
young doctor, for he looks old enough.
Don't let me hear another word; I shall
bring him right up."
She tried to smooth her thin air with
her weak fingers, caught sight of her
sallow face In the gloss, and bid It on
tbe pillow. She heard footsteps on the
stairs and her father's voice, saying,
"The first door to the right; go in.
There's a man waiting for me, so you
must get on alone; you will find her
rather nervous, but I suppose you ex
pect tint." '-
He stopped a moment outside the door
as if he were waiting for her to get a
steady voice, with which to say 'Come
in,' which she did not get after all. He
went in, bowing gravely, and after one
glance at her stood silent, compressing
his pale lips and looking away. He sat
down when she invited him to, and
said gravely; ''I could not avoid hear
ing your objections to my presence, and
could not have intruded if I had not
felt that I most save you a long sick

"I love you," she said. '
"Enough," she said. .

Large Meeting at Columbus. COLUMBUS, O., February. 24, '74.
A large meeting of the Woman's
Temperance Society was held at City
Hall this afternoon. Speeches were de
livered by many ladies, old and young,
pathetic and comic. Mother Stewart
made au enthusiastic speech, and com
mittees on permanent organization
were appointed and made reports. It
was a very good meeting, but did not
develop much ' enthusiasm. A mass
meeting took place this evening.
To the Associated Press.
Columbus,' February 24. A mass
temperance meeting at the Towu Street
Methodist Church, this morning, was
very large and intensely earnest. Dr.
Dio Lewis presided. When it was an
nounced that tbe General . Assembly
had refused to adopt the resolution of
sympathy with the temperance move
ment, Lewis said : "Never mind, that is
one of those little tliiugs we must get
used to, but my word for it, in five
weeks more, these same men who now
vote against such a resolution will
gladly vote for it."
At the close of the meeting tbe local
executive committee held a meetlngAnd

assembled in City Hall this afternoon,
about a hundred persons being present
from all sections ef Southern Ohio, and
from a number of points in the northern
part of the State. Dio Lewis was chos
en chairman. .- C. M. Nichols, of
Springfield, and Bev. O. Badgiey, of
Mtllersburg, were chosen Secretaries.
Mother Stewart, of Springfield, offered
prayer, after which "All Hail the Pow
er of Jesus' Name" was sung.
An invitation for all ladies who had
taken part in the temperance mdvement
in other towns was slowly responded to
atflrst.but finally about fifty ladies from
various towns that have been enjoying
the crusade took.scats on the platform.
After appointing a committee, J. C. Van
Pelt, of New Vienna, .known as the
"reformed saloon-keeper,", .took the
stand and made a few remarks that
were not very forcible or connected.
Short speeches were also made by Mrs.
Timmons, of Clarksburg, and Mrs. Lou
isa Findlay, of Xenia.
The reading of a telegram from Lan-
oastcr, announcing that 1,000 women
were out on the war-patb, with "Pray
er" for their watch ward and a deter
mination to fight it out ou that line,
was received with three reusing cheers.
A letter was read from Mrs. W. J.
Reese, of Lancaster, sister of General
and Senator ' Sherman, expressing
warm sympathy with the movement.
Bern arks were also made by Miss Sew-
ell, of Morrow, Miss Kate Dwyer, of
Greenfield, and Miss Sarah Butler, of

committee ef ladies, and an executive
and an advisory committee of gentle
men, all residents of this city. The fol
lowing resolutions were reported, and
adopted by a rising vote: -
Sesolved, That the success of the Ohio
women movement in behalf of temper
ance reform, has given substantial as
surance that the traffic and use of In
toxicating drinks can and will be re
moved from the state and nation.
Besolved, Tbat in the prosecution et

Sesolved, That in addition to contri-
butionsjof money, generously and tree
ly given, it is recommended to the men
aiding the women's effort to suppress
intemperance in our communities and
to women who carry on the work to
avoid all envy, hatred, malice and all
uncuarltableness and ' bitterness oi
speech and denunciation of men engag
ed in the liquor traffic; to cultivate
their acquaintance and kindly feeling,
and by all honorable and practicable
means to assist them in changing from
business injurious to society to some
other remunerative to themselves and
beneficial to the community.
. Besolved, That this association shall
be called the Women's Temperance As
sociation of Ohio.
The convention then took a recess
until this evening.
THE EVENING MEETING.
The mass temperance convention re
assembled at City Hall at 7 o'clock.
Senator Goodhue, of Summit, presided.
After prayer and singing, J. C. Van
Pelt was introduced and gave a clear
and interesting account of bis conver
sion to tbe cause ot temperance. The
evening was spent in listening to short
and pointed experiences from the la
dies who have participated in the
movement in various towus of Ohio.
Bev. M. W. Ilamma, of Springfield,
gave a history ' of the movement in
Springfield, and said that $100,000 has
been raised to carry on the crusade and
employ counsel if legal proceedings are
Instituted, and half a million of money
would be forthcoming if necessary.
Dio Lewis said that he had a personal
explanation to make. He bad lately
heard from various points that he was
engaged in this work as a money-mak
ing scheme, when the truth was tbat he
had been two weeks in Ohio, working
harder than he ever did before, had
conducted nineteen meetings and hail
received $315 all told. After paying
heavy traveling and other expenses he
would leave Ohio with less than half
the money he has been in the habit of
receiving for a single lecture on elhor
subjects before lyceums and bureaus.
In answer to what he thought of a pro
hibitory law, Dio Lewis said that he
was satisfied that it was a just law, but
if asked whether he was in favor of such
a law, he would say no, not by any
means, and simply because it has never
been and never could be enforced.
When a law was once passed, the peo
ple stopped their war on the liquor
traffic and said, let her work. But she
didn't work, and people inquired, why
don't they prosecute the liquor dealers
under this law; but the trouble is, they
meant no particular persons, and so it
was no one's business. He was satis
fied that the prohibition law had been
a enrse in Massachusetts, and if repeal
ed at least one-third of the rum holes in
Boston would close. '
Doctor John Russell, of Michigan,
took Issue with Lewis on this point. He
was satisfied that a prohibition law
could and would be enforced and should
A resolution was adopted thanking
Dio Lewis for the part he has taken in
this movement. .
An Editor's Agony.
The sensation of an editor, says the
Daubury News, en lirst glancing over
bis paper and detecting errors in it, are
somewhat different from those expert
euced by the reader on making like dis
covery. The latter is either amused at
the blunder or incensed at the careless
ness whicli causes it, and in both cases
arrives at the conclusion that the trouble
is avoidable, and that the editor Is to
blame for not avoiding it. He never saw
an editor take his first glance over a
copy of the edition. Perhaps the edi
tion is worked off when the opportunity
Is afforded to the weary man. He has
either trusted the proofs to some one
else, or read them himself, but the feel
ing of dread is just as great in the latter
as iu the former case. The proof-reader
may not consult the copy, and so per
petuate the blunders of the compositor ;
and perhaps the compositor may neg
lect to undo the wrong he has done, al
though bis attention is plaiuly called to
it 1a the proof.
When about to make this preparatory
survey tbe editor does uot take a cigar
in his mouth and elevate his heels to tbe
desk, as is tbe popular tradition. Dying
men don't do that way, you know, and
we have come to the conclusion that an
editor examining his paper feels very
much like a man who is about to pass
into eternity. He reads along carefully
and slowly like a man feeling his way
across a piece of doubtful ice. Sudden
ly his face becomes distorted with an
awful pain. He doesn't cry out; he
doesn't rant. The anguish within him
is so broad, and deep, and intense that
he dares not trust it to words. He just
simply reaches up and takes a handful
of bis own hair, and tugs at it and tears
come in his eyes. Then he picks np
the paper, which he has taken the pre
caution to kick across the room on dis
covering the error, and resumes the tor
turing search ; for, after all, it is but a
search for errors and agony, and not an
agreeable and instructive perusal.
Suddenly he groans not an expectant
groan like one who hopes for help to
reach him through it, but the groan- of
one who is beyond the reach of hope,
who feels that the warm sunshine, the
kind glance of friendship, the beautiful
flowers and the song of the birds are
gone forever and forever from him. It
is a smothered groan, accompanied by a
kick out of the leg, as if the party had
in that moment taken an eternal leave of
all tilings earthly.
There is still another search with
aching eyes and throbbing brain, and
then the paper is smashed down on the
floor, and the infuriated man bounds up
from his chair, and catches both hands
in his hair, and dances around like a
mad man. ne doesn't call upon heaven
and earth to witness what he is going
to do, and to blight him if he should
not do it. He doesn't dash into the
composing room and scorch the men
with his wrath. Even this slight relief
is denied him. The paper is worked oft,
and the scrutiny that would cheerfully
attack a needle in a haystack would
fall paralyzed before a search for the
author of the great wrong. He doesn't
say anything at all not a single intel
ligible word escapes his ashen lips, as
he holds his hair and prances about in
the dingy solitude or bis room. And
when he is done he sits down again and
groans, and afterward puts en his hat
and rushes forth into the street rushes
anywhere to get away from the face of
man, to get away from himself and ev
erything belonging to himself.
The One Cent Stamp Story.
Benoni Howard was a match-maker
in New York. He once had a manufac
tory and was prosperous and influen
tial, and a millionaire. . He was an- ar
dent patriot too when the country
needed all the fire of patriotism it
could raise. He recruited a battalion
for the defense ef the Union in tbe dark
days of the rebellion, and paid most of
the expenses of the troops. He sup
ported the families of twelve volunteers
during the war,- and gave pensions to
widows and orphans the war made.
He also sent artists to the Held to take
portraits of distinguished officers, aud
these portraits are said to have cost him
the considerable sum $17,000. They
now belong to the art treasures of the
nation. No chronical states, however,
that B. Howard ever went to the war
himself. . But be sent bis workmen, and
took care of their wives which was the
next best thing for the country and
probably the best for bim.. He stayed
at borne and continued to manufacture
matches, but his business had of late
suffered a decline.
The one-cent stamp on each box be
came oppressive. But lie still loved his
country as well as ever, aud thought be
would help it along bv making one-cent
revenue stamps himself. He according
ly produced a very good imitation and
used it with great profit. It was a very
little thing to make a fuss about, but
somebody who had probably done noth
ing for his country, discovered the tri
fling fraud and pointed it ont to the au
thorities. They called Howard a coun
terfeiter, and tried him as such. His
patriotic lawyers rehearsed his military
services and artistic triumphs to the
court and jury, and tlio patriotic jury
recommended him to the mercy of the
court, and the court gave him a retire
ment of five years in the Kings Count
Penitentiary. Uis match factory has
been abolished; his war record expung
ed. He was like a cow which gavo a
bucket full of milk, and then kicked it
over. It cost the country more to try
him as a state criminal than all his for
mer patriotic services were worth. Aud
thus he retired into private life with the
stigma of crime and the smell of sulphur

Telling Startling News.
' To be the first to communicate start
ling news is an ambition most of ns
confess lo. There is a fascination about
communicating the intelligence of a
disaster that few of ns can resist.' We
hear that So-and-so is dead, and we
start at once for home. Everybody we
meet we stop to ask bim bow he does.
We say "bow are you ?" and say it so
calmly we are surprised at ourself. He
stops too and looks at ns. The saluta
tion is so bare of those qualities that go
to enchain a man tbat we suddenly feel
as if it would have been much better lo
have communicated the intelligence at
once. The other party is standing ex
pectantly and staring curiously at us.
In desperation at the time we are los
ing, Ve give him the news, experience
a thrill of gratitude at the shock it
gives him, and start on- again, i The
nearer we reach home the greater ear

us after all. - How it nerves ns ahead
We reach the house; all of our eager
ness is gone. ' We remove our coat and
hat, and while we are hanging them ap
and hare our back to tbe audience, we
say very quietly : "That was a rather
sudden death !" "Death ! Who is dead ?"

our very finger ends tingle with joy
"Why hadn't you heard of It?" In a
tone of surprise. "So-andsso is dead
just died." , ' : i ;.
Sometimes So-and-so is reported dj-
injfi-suduenly stricken with a fatal, dis
ease, and we put for heme with tbe
same eagerness; and when we have
succeeded in being first with the news
there comes that after all he may not
die. It tortures us in spite of all reason
ing, and having set forth in glowing
colors the great danger he is in,' and
bow sad it is to be for his family, and
so enlarged upon all the awful features
of the coming catastrophe that there
remains nothing more to add, we feel
in a certain sense responsible for bis
carrying out tho programme. . How
eagerly we watch every Intelligence of

bis taking off. Aa hie symptoms grow
more and more unfavorable we grow
louder and more pathetic in our sympa

feel the sympathy oozing from us, and
in its stead comes the horrible suspic
ion that he may possibly recover In
spite ef all. It doesn't seem possible
that a man who has given out that he
Is going to die can have the face to get
well again. But there are people who
do it, although we mention no names.
Gillingbam was in Williamsport the
other day, and while attending to his
business there he had a strong premoni
tion that something was the matter at
home; so in order to satisfy himself, he
determined to ran down to Philadelphia
on the next train. In the meantime his
mother-law sent him a dispatch to this
"Another daughter has just arrived.
Hannah is poorly. Come home at once.'

meanwhile, Gilllngham arrived home

the hang of tbe thing, and tbe more he
considered the subject, the more he be
came alarmed at the extraordinary oc
currence. He took the early train for
the city, and during the journey was in
a condition ot frantic bewilderment.
Wben he arrived he jumped in a cab,
drove furiously to the house, and scared
his mother-in-law into convulsions by
rushing in a frenzy, and demanding
what on earth had happened. He was
greatly relieved to find that there were
no twins in the nurscy, and to learn
how the mistake occurred. But he is
looking now for the telegraph operator
who changed tbe date of that dispatch.

An Incident of Indian Warfare.
At tbe recent fight between tbe Sioux
and Poncas, at the reservation of the
latter above YAnktown, D. T., the fol
lowing occurrence ia said to have taken
place: ... .
A Sioux brave bad gained the shelter
of one of the buildings, from which
position he was enabled lo fire at his
foes from short range. While he was
standing just at the corner of the build
ing loading his gun a Ponca squaw
rushed from the bouse, and before tbe
Sioux could defend himself, gave bim a
slashing cut across the abdomen with a
huge knife, literally disemboweling
him. As she struck him the Sioux in
voluntarily bent forward, clasping bis
abdomen wltb his hands, and just at
that moment the squaw caught him by
tbe hair, and with a aavage stroke of
knife scalped him. Sliaking ber gory
tropy aloft, and giving a shrill cry of
defiance she darted back into the build
ing in safety, followed by a dozen rifle
balls from as many Sioux, who from a
distance saw the resnlt of the sortie.
The effect was perfectly maddening up
on the Sioux, for to have one of tbeir
warriers scalped by a tqnaw was a dis
grace which could only be wiped out by
the blood of the entire accursed baud
of Poncas. They rushed for the build
ings but were met by a fire which laid
several of them low, and so cooled the
ardor of the rest that they retired to a
safe distance without having injured
their foes. The act of tbe squaw teem
ed to inspire the Poncas, and flaunting
from the window the scalp ef the un
fortunate Sioux, they uttered yells of
derision and contempt which nearly
drove the Sioux frantic. .- . :

An Incident of Indian Warfare. [From the St. Louis Democrat.]
Not Exactly Right but Near
Enough to be Interesting.
Im Cincinnati they tell a little story
about Mrs. Chief Justice Waite. About
a month before Gen. Grant bad broach
ed Mr. Waite' name to tbe Senate
Gen. Hillyer says Mr. Waite was al
ways Gen. Grant's first clioice but be
fore anything was thought of the mat
ter by the Walte's, Mrs. Waite wrote
an article on cookery for the Cincinnati
Gazette. The article was signed "Yan
kee Cook Girl.". It was foil ef sound
suggestions on the cookery question.
and replete with good advice to house
keepers. The article arrested so much
attention that finally a rich, old widow
er in Cincinnati wrote to Sam Seed, the
editor, that he would be glad to give the
"Yankee Cook Girl," a situation not as
a servant, "but she might preside over
bis household. ' In fact be offered1 mar
riage. Mr. Reed bad to answer in a
paragraph that the "Yankee Cook
Girl" was not in tbe market, she hav
ing get a situation in a neigbboiing
city. The people of Cincinnati don't
know even now that the "Yankee Cook
Girl" was Mrs. Waite, the sensible and
practical wife of the new Chief Justice,
and that her new situation is tbe
highest in the land chief mistress in

Let go that Rope.
.Mr. Wepples was born to command
there is no doubt of it. He can ne more
help giving orders whenever be sees
another man at work than a woman can
pass a mirror without trying to catch a
glimpse of her back hair. .Mr. Wepples
was coming along the street the other
day, where some men were hoisting
melted tar to the top of a building for
the roofers. One man was pulling at
the hoisting rope, aad another was
holding the bucket away from the wall
by means of a chord. The bucket had
just passed the wide cornice when Wop-
pies came upon the scene. He compre
hended the situation at a glance and
saw tbat the man who was holding by
the chord must slacken It so as to let the
backet swing orer on to tbe roof. . "Let
go that rope:" shouted Mr. Wopples.
The man pulling on the hoisting rope
recognized the voice of authority aad
with a dim impression that something
had burst, he dropped his rope and ran
to the middle of the street.. The bucket
came down so as to jest hit the edge of
the .cornice, which pact it, and tbe
smoky, sticky contents descended in a
flood npon Mr. Wopples. Daring the
next two weeks Mrs. Wopples devoted
her leisure hours to scraping the tar off
Wopples skin, varying this amusement
by the delivery of free lectures to Wop
plea npon what she called bis habit of
"Eternal meddlin'." -. .
