THE AlADU OF THE PEERIOD.
BY T. W. JAOKSON.
Maud Parvenue one summer day
Went to the stable bright and gay.
While standing by th9 open door
The rich man passed in coach and four,
ite glanced at Mand with loving air
Her father was a millionaire-
And Mand she gently moved her head,
And to herself these few words said :
S "I'll not be by a rich man won;
My pa can cover him ten to one,".
s, Into the stable then walked she
. To hear sweet words from the coachee.
The coachman did not have much cash,
But oh he"was a lovely mash.
Down they sat on a bale of hay,
r And this is what Maud heard him say :
B "Will- you fly with me, my pretty miss,
3. To a land that's far remote from this ?
r "You know that time and time again,
I've toldmyiove in the shady lane.
"When driving, darling by your side
1 I've often asked : 'Will you be my bride?"'
Then Maud made up her mind to slope
And said to the coachee, "We'll elope."
One moonlight night they skipped away ;
MMand'e atheraged and ragel, they say.
But Maud was happy with her coachee,
As happy, as happy as girl could be.
Time passed on and the rich man wed
A vixen with a carmine head,
And often he has groaned and sighed,
Because Mand would not be his bride.
Miaud's father drove her from his door,
And by and by grow very poor.
The rich man's wealth soon went complete.
For they played him well in wild Wall street.
The coachman bought him horseajnd hacks,
And for Niagara Falls made tracls;
And in a year or a little more
tie counted his millions by the score.
And when Maud's fatherheard tho news
He had an awful it of blues.
Then he tried to make the matter straight,
,Bit got kicked over the coachee's gate.
Of all sad words from tongne of flesh,
The saddest are these: I've been too fresh,
ONE BY ONE.
Though from the boughs to which they've long
The autumn leaves are dropping one by one,
Yet from their dust, new forms of beauty,
Shall smile again in summer's gentle sun.
Though one by one the pearly drops of morn
From drooping flowers, on viewless pinions
We'll see them yet the gorgeous clouds adorn
With glowing arches of celestial dyes.
Though one by one the stars are fading slowly
That all night )eng kept vigil in the sky,
The distant mountain peaks, like prophets
Proclaim that morning's light and song are
Though with slow step goes forth the sower
And on earth's lap his precious treasure
Yet comes the harvest, with its joyous reaping.
When shall be gathered home the ripened
Though one by one the friends we fondly
Withdraw from ours the cold and trembling
And leave us sorrowful, they do not perish
They yet shall greet us in a fairer land.

DU. JOSEPH D.oFORD.
FRAi D. MOULTON.
The " Mutual Friend "of Henry Ward
Beecher and Theo. Tilton.
Francis D. Moulton, one of the ablest
witnesses who ever excercised the ingenuity
of a crbss-examining lawyer, died at his
residence in New York city, December 3,
1884. Outside of his connection with the
Beecher scandal he was a man to be re
membered, being an influential argricul
turist and an earnest friend of rural inter- 1
ests. Some who read these entences have
met Mr. Moulton at fass and similar
gatherings of country people. He is a
good public speaker, and a genial man
whom it was always a pleasure to sees
whether in private life or in a meeting
convened for business. His death in the
prime of his years and usefulness is much
to be regretted.
He was born in, New York city, in the
year 1824. His father was a merchant and
his mother a woman of refinyment and
culture, who gave him his preparatory
education. In 1849 he became a student
in what is known now as the College of the
City of New York. He graduated in 1854.
Oep of his most intimate college friends
His health "being bad Mr. Moulton re- 0
'luctantly gave up the idea of either reading
for admission to the bar, or entering the r
Military Academy at West Poizit, and took 0
a business position. By 1801 he had risen
to be a partner in the firm which first en
gaged his services, and cootinued to denote '
his superior energy and sagacity to the
enlargement of the business of the house,
until the great scandal interrupted his con
nection with it and finally severed a long
and profitable partnership.
His intimacy` with Tilton led to that
gentleman's acquainting him with the
story of the alleged great wrong hehad re
ceived from Beecher. The communication
was made on December 30, 1870. Mr.
Moulton acted upon it promptly, and ar-0
ranged a meeting betweeni'BSeher and
Tilton, at which both agreed to constitute h
him heir f and to intrust to his care

FWai5immTosin, D. C., December 15.1881,4.
The question of interest in Washington
now is the Spanish treaty s submitted by
Minister Fostter. As has already been gen
erally published, the terms of this treaty
are sueh that its coinatiiaon would reduce
the tariff on tobaoQ oiftyper cent.. and 'on
sugar in a similarly radical manner. While
the Senate has not yet reached a discusesion
of the treaty, its merits have been pretty
thoroughly debated by the Senators and
members individually and it is evident the
measure will encounter very strong oppo
sition. The Prsidents the Secretary of
State and Minister Footer -have presented
their arguments in its favor, but the busi
ness interests involve4 nave replied with
vigor. The House also is inclined to treat
the matter coldly. The Democrats, as a
party, are not disposed to let a Republican
administration deal thus peremptorily with
tariff revision,r and a very strong element
of the Republicans.object very decidedly to
any such reciprocity. These are all strong
protectionists, and it is generally under
stood that Mr. Blaine is inspiring the op
position on that score. Besides all. this,
there is a spirit of angry resentment on the
part of many members of the House of
Representatives at what they term an in
fringement of their prerogatives, claiming
that the Executive is practically usurping
the functions of the legislative power. So,
altogether, according to present indications
the prospects of the treaty-or for that
matter of any of the treaties-are not par
I understande that Messrs. Morrison,
Mills, Blount and the Spdaker have decided
that there shall be no tariff bill reported
from the Ways and Means Committee this
session. Mr. Morrison -wants to test the
sentiments of, the new iembers elected to
the next House before .rging the. question
