" Margaret Graham, why is this thus?" asked his Honor, as an aged woman stood at the bar. "I couldn't help it, sir," she sadly said, folding her hands and dropping her eyes. "I see gray hairs, wrinkles of age, and signs that yon are slowiy drifting to the grave," he continued; "and yet you get drunk and hurrah for General Jack son, and rouse the neighbors from their beds." " Piease, sir, it was a small drunk, she explained. " And yet you have been here before, and I have let mercy overpower justice. Iam ashamed, Marttaret, to think that in this nineteenth century of civiliza tion a woman forty-four years old should be brought here charged with drunken ness." "I'll do better, sir." "I hope so, Margaret; I hope you will dash the cup from you, and take a sol emn vow never to drink anything stronger than river water after this?" "I will, sir." "And though the bloom of youth may not return to your faded cheet, you will feel young again in spirit, and life will seem to you like a grand picnic at Belle Isle, with frosted cake piled up ten feet high. One further remark, and I am done I shall send you up for ninety day"-" She desired to appeal to a higher court, but Bijah led her away, and told her that her friends could get her out on a writ of'baverous corpus" any time they wanted to. A sweet voice singing broke the silence of the court. It was a female voice, and in low, sad tones it sang the plaintive melody: Hickory, dickory dock, j The mouse ran up the clock: ' And Jack fell down and broke bis crown. Ten thousand miles away. "Tis the voice of the broken hearted Jane Mooney," said Bijah, and he went in and led her out. " Miss Mooney, is it true that you were overcome by the spiritual influences of fermented liquors acting upon your nerv ous system?" inquired his Honor. It wasn't, she said. It was true that she had just got up from the supper table and was going around the corner to see abont anew dress, when an officer captured her and made th base charge. The officer had his say to the effect that Miss Mooney was as drunk as a Boston Alderman at a clam bake, but he acknowledged that it was her first of fense, and tbat perhaps she could have reached home if left alone. " I shall suspend sentence this time," said his honor, "but don't think for a moment, Miss Mooney, that you have bluffed this court. The doubt is in your favor, and thus I let you go; repeat the offense, and the equinoctial gales of au tumn won't have a chance to ruin any bonnets for you," "They won't, eh," she sneered, eleva ting her eyebrows and breathing hard; but Bijah whispered to her that it was dangerous to trifle with justice and that she had better rush madly towards the pure air of liberty. As the door opened there was a sound of shulllinz feet on the flagstones, and a voice sang: "Oh! sister, what did mother say. When she went down to Put-in-Bay? She told me alwaya to be good, And never, never run away." "Was that you, James William?" asked his honor, as the prisoner came out. "It was. Do your worst, oh!' cruel executioner! " cried James. " And you were drunk? " " Drunk I was, and now drive the poisoned d auger deep into this aching breast!" " And you haven't fully recovered yet!" James stood back, and, waving his Ion g right arm to and fro, he said : " They come around me here and say. My days of life are o'er: That I shall mount my noble steci And lead my band no more. They come, and "I want to know whether you are guilty or not gailty," broke in the Judge. " If I had me brave retainers here I should say ' no;' I am thy victim, and I answer that I were drunk. Drunk I Aye! the fumes of the accursed wine still floats through me weary brain, and I see strange sights before me eyes!" " You don't see anything that looks MEMPHIS, TENN.: TUESDAY like the house of correction, do you?" asked the court. "I see a bastile crowded with innocent victims, who cry out to me for re-ven-ge!" answered James. " Well, in about an hour you'll hear some one crying out ' mush!' to you, for I'm going to give you a month in that bastile." "The fates do mock me now, bnt I shall trample on them yet; and listen, ye know the call, Bijah; I shall yet spit upon the sod which covers thee! ' "Don't threaten me, or I'll have yon arrested for arson!" said Bijub, as he led the prisoner away; and he returned with a very red face and said he'd give fifty dollars to catch any one spitting on his grave. CEMETERY SAM." How a rallfornla Brntrgart was) . "Nmlltea Heavily." He was not reticent, neither was he diffident; but he was glib of tongue and possessed many accomplishments which are taught and appreciated through the interior. He could jump into the air, crack his heels together fonr distinct times, and when he landed stiff leg ged could repeat the well known, " I'm a thief " in a manner that betokened long practice and quiet determination. When he found himself the center of the right sort of audience, he could as sume a nonhcalantair and lead the con versation into the proper channel, when he would begin counting upon his fingers the number of private cemeteries he had established; and then, fingers being in sufficient, he would call for a sheet of paper tbat the number each contained might be correctly enumerated. His first appearance in Kureka was made a few evenings ago, and he intro duced himself as "Cemetery Sam," eave the particulars of hia receiving the pa tronymic, and Btated tbat he was from Pifcce, was a "gun fighter," and asked if any there were who doubted his state ment. He sloshed around considerably during the evening, and by dint of suav ity and terror (each applied as circum stances demanded) ho succeeded in loading himself with nectar ere the mid night hour. Then he girded up his loins and de clared his determination to start a corpse factory, but in order that his victims might know who they had the honor of beiug slain by, he thought proper to offerexplanation, and in so doing carried ou a sort of informal dialogue, asking the questions with formal and grave earnestness, and answering with cuuning lightness, thus: " Who was it inaugurated the grave yard at Rocky Bar, because a barkeeper refused him a drink? Guess it was Cemetery Sam." " Who was it caused the first orphan asylum to be started at Montana? Cemetery Sam was the fel ler." " Who was it made a public ad ministrator rich in Eastern Oregon? I'm mistaken if it wasn't Cemetery Sam." " Who was it that" here some one present, who evidently thought that the thing was becoming monotonous, smote Sam heavily and the latter fell. When he arose he continued the mono logue by asking: "Who was struck by lightning just now? If my memory serves me rieht, it must have been Cem etery Sam." A Saratoga "Saw." Says the Virginia City Enterprise: " Hank Monk, the stage driver who gave Horace Greeley his memorable moun tain ride, in common with all bis tribe, hates the sight of the ponderous archi tecture in the trunk line known as the ' Saratoga band box.' He iikes a 1 Sara toga ' about as well as a cat likes hot soup. He now drives on the stage line between Carson City and Lake Tahoe. He was driving on the same line last summer. A Virginia lady who was stopping at the Glenbrook House had a 'Saratoga' at Carson which she wished brought up to the lake. It was about as long and wide as a first-class spring mattress, and seven or eight feet high. The lady had managed to get as far as Carson by rail, but the trouble was to get it up into the mountains. Hank had promised two or three times to bring it up 'next trip,' but always arrived with out it. At last Hank drove up next evening, and, as usual, the lady came out on the veranda to ask if be bad brought her trunk. Like that great and good man George, Hank cannot tell a lie, and so he said, 'No, ma'am, I haven't brought it, but I think some of it will be up by the next stage.' 'Some of it!' cried the lady. ' Yes; mav be half of it, or such a matter. 'Half of it!' groaned the horrified owner of the Saratoga. 'Y'es; half tomorrow snd the rest next day or the day after.' 'Why, how in the name of common sense can they bring half of it?' ' Well, when I left they were sawing it in two, and' 'Sawing it in two! Sawing my trunk in two?' 'That was what I said,' coolly answered Hank. ' Two men, with a big cross cut saw, were working down through it about in the middle, I think.' ' Sawing my trunk in two? and all my best clothes in it! Sawing it in the middle!' And in a towering passion she rushed indoors,' threatening the hotel, the stage line, the railroad com pany, the town of Carson and the State , of Nevada with suits for damages. It was in vain that she was assured tbat there was no truth in the story of the sawing that Monk was a great joker; she could not be made to believe but that her trunk had been sawed in two until it arrived intact and she had ex amined its contents most thoroughly." Sbort Dreaaea the a'arlalan laievalles. Short dresses are becoming fashion able in Paris, and a letter writer from that place tells an interesting anecdote in .nnn.nhnn with tliA introduction of the fashion. Amongst the Cinderella feet thus attractively aispiayea to vitpw, which the writer has seen, were those of - tSn.niali Knn II I W Mi.. k li A 1 1 Being complimented on their smallness and perfect shape, she rejoined tnai sne EVENING, AUGUST 4, 1874. rejoiced at not having lived at the most flourishing epoch in the Spanish mon archy; find some ono asking her why, she replied that it was only since the be ginning of the eighteenth century that Spanish ladies of rank were allowed to wear short dresses. Before that time they were compelled to wear the man tilla, the graceful but long folds of which completely concealed their feet, and the greatest favor that a lady could then confer on an admirer was to per mit him to admire the tips of her shoes. In the eighteenth century, however, King Philip V married the Princess Louise de Sauoie, and the beauti ful and spirited Princess des Urigins was named " camerera-mayor" to the new queen. Nature had bestowed on Madame des Urisins charming feet, which bad been greatly admired by the court of France. Taking ad'antage of the influence which she exerted over the Queen's mind, she soon complained that mantillas raised a cloud of dust and spoiled the dresses, and one day she bravely appeared with a short but grace ful skirt. The disgrace of a powerful minister could not have agitated the public mind more than this disdain of the national costume. Most parents declared that they would rather see their daughters in their graves than allow them to exhibit their feet thus scandal ously, and the chronicles of the time even say that the descent of an English army on the Spanish coast would not have been considered a greater evil. Madame de Ursins and the Queen were, however, supported by his majesty and all the young courtiers, and after a severe struggle their efforts were crowpfcd with success. Outrageously short skirts took the place of the stately mantillas, and continued to be worn until a late date. In tropical weather like this, it must he owned, it is a relief to ladies to get rid f the preposterously long skirts that have been worn during the winter. SPECIAL NOTICE. Many who are suffering from the effects of the warm weather and are debilitated, are ad vised by physicians to take moderate amounts of whisky two er three times a day. In a lit tle while those who adopt this advice fre quently increase the number of "drinks, and in time become confirmed inebriates. A beverage which will not oreate thirst for intox icating liquors, and which is intended especi ally for the benefit of debilitated persons, whether at home or abroad, is Dr. Echenck s Sea Weed Tonic. Containing the juices of many medicinal herbs, this preparation does not create an appetite for the intoxioating cup. The nourishing and the life-supporting properties of many valuable natural produc tions contained in it and well known to medi cal men have a most strengthening influence. A single battle of the Tonio will demonstrate its valuable qualities. For debility arising from sickness, overexertion or from any cause whatever, a wine-glassful of Sea Weed Tonio taken after meals will strengthen the stomach and create an appetite for wholesome food. To nil who are about leaving their homes, we dosire to say that the excellent effects of Dr. Mienck's seasonable remedies, 8ea Weed Tonic, and Mandrake Pills, are particularly evident when taken by those who are injuri ously affected by a change of water and diet. No person should leave home without taking a supply of these safeguards along. For sale by all druggists. eod-13S-16S SHIRTS.
