II 13 Several anecdotes nau ueen re.-, lated, and finally the peddler was asked to give us n story, as men of his -profession were generally full of adventure and anecdote, lie was a short, thick-set man somewhere about forty years" of age, and gave evidence of great physical strength. He gave his name as Lemuel Viney, nnd his home was in Dover, N. II. ''Well, gectlVnicn," he commenced, knocking the ashes from his pipe and putting it in his pocket, "sup pose I tell you of about the last thing of any consequence that hap Iened to me. You . pcc I am now right from the far "West and on my way home for winter quarters. It was about two months ago, one pleeasant evening, that I pulled up at the door of a Bmall inn in a small village in'ILicock County, Indiana. I said 'twas plcnsant I meant 'twas warm, but it wa3 cloudy and likely to be very daik. I went in and call ed for supper, and had my horse ta ken care of, and after I had eaten I sat down in the bar-room. It began to rain about 8, o'clock, and for a while it poured down hard and it was very dark outdoors. "Now I wanted to be in Jackson early the next morning, for I expect ed a load of goods there forme, which I meant to dispose cf on mv way. home. i . The moon rose about midnight, and I knew if it did not rain that I could get along Tery comfortably through the mud after that. I asked the landlord if he would not see that my horse was fed about midnight, as I wished to be off about tw. II eexprcssed some surprise at this, and asked me why I did not stay to breakfast I told him that I had sold the last load about out. and that a new lot of ..nrwla trno wnlt.innr for tnfi nt. .Tnflf- them before the express again left in the luorning. There was a num ber of people about while I toltj this, lb nt I took little noticcof themj one man only arresting my attention. I had a small package . of placords which I was to deliver to the Sheriff at Jackson, and they were notices ior the detection of a notorious rob ber named Dick Hardhead. TThesc bills gave a description of his per son,, and the man before me answer ed very well to it. In fact it was perfect- He was a tall, well-formed man, rather slight in frame, and haa the appearance of a gentleman, save that his face bore those hard, cruel marks which an observing man can not mistake for anything but the in dex of a villainous disposition. ' "When I went up to my chsmber I asked the landlord who that man was, describing the suspicious indi vidual. He said he did not know him. He had come there thai after noon and intended to leave some time the next day. The host asked me why I wished to know, and I simply told him that the man's countenance looked familiar, and I wished to know if I had ever been Acquainted with him. I resolved not to let the landlord into the se cret, but to hurry on to Jackson and give information to the.Sherlff, and perhaps he might ceach the inn be fore the villain left; for I had no doubts with regard to his identity. "I had an alarm watch, and hav ing set ' it to give the alarm at one o'clock, I went to sleep. I was aroused at the proper time and im mediately got up and dressed myself. When I reached the yard I found the clouds all passed away and the moon was shinina: brightly. The hostler was easily aroused, and by 2 o'clock I was on the road. The mud was deep and my horse could not travel very fast yet it struck me that the beast made more work than 'there was a nj- need of, for the cart was nearly empty, my whole stock consisting of about half a dozen tin pans and a lot of loose rags. "However, on we went, and in the course of half an hour I was clear of the village and at a short distance ahead lay a large tract of forest, . mostly of green pines. The road led directly through the woods', and as near as I could remember, the djs tance was not far from 12 miles, The moon was in the cast,and a the road ran nearly west I should have light enough. I had entered the wood and had gone perhaps half a mile when my wagon wheels settled, with a bump and a jerk, into a deep hole. I uttered an exclamation of astonishment; but that was not all, I heard another exclamation from anetthcr source! ."What could it be? I looked around quickly but could sec noth ing, and yet I knew that the sound I had heard was verv close to me. As the wheels came up I felt some thing besides the jerk of the hole. I heard something; roll or tumble from one side to the other of my wagon, and I could also feel the jar occasioned by the movement. It was simply a man in my cart. I knew this on the instant. You may have noticed my cart as I came up this evening. The main part of it opens behind, and there is room enougii within for quite a party, provided they'd stow themselves close enough Of course I felt puzzled. At last I wondered if some poor fellow had not ttken this method to obtain a ride. But I soon gave this up, for I knew that any decent" iiian would have, asked me for a ride and taken it comfortably My next idea was that somebodv had got in there to sleep. But this passed away as quickly, as it camc.for no man would have .broken into my cart lor that purpose. And that thought, gcntle- men.oneiied mv eyes. Whoever was in there had broken in. "My next thought-was of Mr. Dick Hardhead. He had heard me say that my load was all sold out, and of course he suppocsd that I had some money with me. And in this he was right lor I had over two thonsand dollars. I also thought that he meant to leave the cart when he supposed I had reached a safe place, and then either creep over and shoot me,or knock me down or per haps Blip out and ask for a ride, or something of that sort. All this passed through my mind before I had got a rod from the hole. "Now, I never make it a point to brag of myself, but yet I have seen great deal of the world, and I. am pretty cool and clear-headed under a difficulty. In a very few moments my resolution was formed. My horse was now knee deep in the mud r.nd I knew I could slip off without noise. So drew my revolver I never travel in that country without it it is a six-barrelled one and sure drew this, and, having twined the . . , 1 i . 1 T ... rein s around me wnipsiocK, 4. care fully slid down into the mud, and as the cart went on I went behind it and examined the hasp. The door of the cart lets down and is fastened by a hasp which slips over the sta- ple,and is then sen red by a partlocc. The padlock was gone and the hasp was secured in its place, by a bit ot pine suck so mat a sngm pusn from within could break it .My wheel wrench - hung in a leather bucket on the side of the cat, and quickly took it out end slipped it into the staple, the iron handle just sliding down. ; "Now I had him. My cart was j almost new, with a stout frame of white oak, and made on purpose for hard usage, heavy loads and 'service, i did not believe that any ordinary man could break out. I got onto my eart as noiseless as I got off, and then urged iny horse on. still keep ing my pistol handy. I knew that at the distance of half a mile fur ther I should come to a hard,, good road, and I allowed my horse to pick his own way through this mud. It . " . A ft A 1 was about ten minutes aucr mis that I heard a motion in the cart, followed by a grinding noise as though some heavy force was being applied to the door. This continued some moments, and then a heavy thump as though the sole of a boot were applied to the door. 1 said nothing but the idea struck me that the villain might try to judge about where I sat and shoot up through the top of the cart. at me, so I sat down on the footboard. "Of course I knew now that my unexpected pesssenger wa3 a villain, for he must have been awake ever since 1 started, ana noining eise m thc' world but absolute villainy would have caused him to remain quiet so long, and then start up in this par ticular place. The thumping and pushing grew louder and louder and and pretty soon L heard a human voice. 'Let me out of this !' he cried, and be yelled pretty loud. "I lifted my head so as to make him think I was sitting in ray usual place, and then asked him what he was doing in there. 'Let me out and I'll tell ye,' he replied. , " 'Tell me what you rein there for. 1 said. " 'I got in here to sleep on your rags, he answered. " 'How'd ye get in?' I asked. " 'Let me get ont, or I'll shoot yon through the head,' he yelled. , . "Just -at that moment my horse s feet struck the hard road and Iknew that the rest of the road to Jackson would be good going. The distance was twelve miles. I slipped back upon the footboard and took the whip. I had the same horse that I've got now a tall, stout, powerful bay mare and you may. believe there s some go in" her. At any rate she struck a gait that even aston ished me. She had had a mess of good oats, thenight air was cooland in fifteen minutes we cleared the wood and away we-went at a great pace. The chap inside kept yelling to be let out, and threatening to shoot if I didn't let him out. Fi nally he stopped, and in a few mo ments came the reports of a pistol one two threcj four one after the other, and 1 heard the balls whiz over my head. If I had been on my seat one of those balls, if not two, must have gone through me. I popped up ray head again and gave a yell, a deep gronn,and then I said, '0, save me, I'm a dead man!' Ti.en I made a shuffling noise as though I were falling off, and finally settled down again on the foot-board. I now urged up the old mare by giving her an occasional poke with the butt of the whip, and she went along faster than ever. "The man called to me twice more pretty soon after this, and as he got no reply he made some tremendous efforts to break the door open,and as this failed him he made several at tempts on the top. But I had no fear of his doing anything there.,for the top ot my cart is framed in with dovetails and each sleeper bolted to the posts with an iron bolt. I had it made so I could carry heavy loads there. By and by, after all else had failed, the scamp commenced to hoi ler 'whoa' to the horse, and kept it up until he became hoarse. All this time I kept perfectly quiet, holding the reins hrmty and poking the beast with the whip. "u e wasn't an hour going that dozen miles not a bit of it. I Jiad n Hnuch fear perhaps I might tell the truth and saj that I had none, for I had a good pistol, and more than that, my passenger was sufe yet I did feel glad when I eame to the old flour barrel factory- that stands at the edge of Jacksonville, and in ten minutes more I hauled up in front of the tavern and found a couple of,mcn.in the barn cleaning down ,somo stage horses. "'Well, old. feller,' says I, as I got down and went round to the back of the wagon, 'you've had a good ride, haven't. ye?" " 'Who are you?1 he cried, and his voice trembled a little, too, as he asked the question. " 'I am the man you tried to shoot' I told him. "'Where am I? Let me out!' he yelled. " 'Look. here,' said I, 'we've come to a safe s;opping place, and mind ye, I've got a revolver ready for ye the moment j-e show yourself. Now lay quiet' "By this time the two 'ostlers had come to sec what was the matter, and I explained it all to them. Af ter this I got one of them to run and Snd the sheriff and tell him what I believed I'd got for him. The first streaks of day-light were just com ing up, and in half an hour it would be broad daylight. In less than that time the sheriff came and two other men with him. I told him the whole story in a few words exhib ited the handbills I had for him uid then he made for the cart. He told the chap inside who he was, and that if he made the least re sistance he'd be a dead man. But mind 3-011, the sheriff didn't tell him the suspicions we had about him. Then I -slipped the iron wrench out, and as I let the door open the fellow made a spring. I caught him 13' the ankle and he came down on his face, and in a tew moments more the officers had him. It was now day light, and the moment I saw the chap I recognized him. He was the very man I had suspected, and his fine black clothes were pretty well covered with lint and dirt. He was marched off to the lockup, and I told the sheriff I should remain in town all day-. "Alter, breakfast the sheriff came down to the tavern and told me I had caught the veiy bird, and that if I wonld remain until the next morning I should have the reward of -two hundred dollars which had been offered. ' I found my goods all safe, paid the express agent for bringing them from Indianapolis, I and then went d6wn to work to stow them away in my cart. I found the bullet-holes in the top of my vehicle just as I expected. They were in a line, about five inches apart, and had been where I usually sit two of them would have hitmc about the small of the back and passed up ward, for they were sent with a heavy charge cf powder, nnd his pistol was heavy one. "On the next morning the sheriff called upon me and pad me' two hundred dollars in gold, for he had made himself sure that he had got the villain. After an early dinner I sot out, and here I am. I've sold my load all out, and am now ready to lay'np for the winter. I found a letter in the office at Portsmouth for me, from the sheriff of Hancock county, and he informed me that Mr. Hardhead is now in prison for life." So ended the peddler's ston'. In the morning I had the curiosity to look at his cart, and I found the four bullet-holes just as he had told us, though they were now plugged up with phial corks. Viney came out while I was looking, and showed the prints of the villian's feet upon the cart. They were plain and must have been given with great force. SOMEBODY'S CHILD.

He has been forced out on the wide, cold wcrld to ret his own living, and every hu man heart must go out to him m svmpathy in a horn! "Only a tramp!" was the verdict as a stranger was found dead by the roadside. No eye filled with tears no heart sorrowed over his sad fate. He was only a tramp; the great world would go on the same, Pcrhaos some grief-stricken mother awaited him in a far-off home, and as night fell she clasped her hands in sorrow and murmured: "Where, oh! where is my Henri to-night?" Just as like as not, but the verdict of the coroner's jury was: "Shot while stealing chickens, and that's what's the matter with her Henri." "Only a tramp!" they said as they found pieces of an old hat, one boot-heel and three shirt-buttons along the railroad track. The birds sang just the same as before the sun shone just as fair the daisies winked at the gurgling brook, and the meadow lark soared still higher and sent his voice almost to Heav en's gates. Men gathered around the fragments and chewed plug to bacco and talked polities and tried to get up a fight between Jim Daily's bob-tailed pup and old Simons rat terrier. "Only . a tramp" had suddenly dropped out of this life, and who should care? A thousand miles away a sweet-faced child might be asking: "Will my papa come home to-night?" No, sissy, he won't. While the "sad remains" were being viewed the old man turned up all right in the nearest barn, and was sent to the countj- jail, for three months. He may come s'mother night. - "Only a tramp!" some one wIust pcrcd, as a group surrounded a dark object lying in the snow on a win ter's night That's all. The wind blew a requium over the housetops, and the snow-flakes tvhirled round and round the aged head and nestled among the grizzly locks. What cared the world that a poor old tramp had passed from, earth away? Would the bells jingle less merrily on the morrow? Would one home in the great city have one shadow the more for his taking off? And y-et, in some vine-clad home beyond the sea a woman about .JO 3-ears of age and wearing the newest things in bangles may cease to caress her poodle and cry out: "Oh !

As I sit dreaming in the twilight of the day, and the twilight of life, what visions I see in the bed of coals, whoso glow only half lights my room, leaving the rest all in shad ow! Visions of what might have been, rather than what has been, until I find it hard to discriminate between the real and the ideal. Only when the vision is too bright, puff! comes a fall of ashes, and my rose color turns to black. Then the shadows come! Here are several chairs that to the ordinary eye are vacant, but not to mine. On this one nearest to me sits a radiant being who looka at me witklove-lit, yet Borrowfnl eyes, "Mother, dear mother, the years have been long :, Since I las Hi4ined1o your lullaby song!" No need to tell - her that I have sorrowed or s-iffered. Where she is, they know all. The ashes In the grate fall. She is gone, but another comes; "Takes the vacant chair beside me, Lays her little hand In mine." The same luminous brow, the same love-lit eyes, the same high and holy look and over all, youth eternal. Gone in a moment from this world to the next, lifted in the heavenhy arms far above all earthly- sorrows. "Hhe Is not dead, the child of our affections." The ashes fall. Other shadows filt through the room. I am never alone. Some of the shadows are dark and they trouble me! But as I look they take light and form. This one is little sister. This is the name I remember her by. She was sick a long time, and wo ii3ed to say- to each other, "When little Bister gets better." And ever since, when we recall the events of those early days, we say, "It was when little sis- ter was better." Oh, 3'es! She has been better ever since. But she went away to be better, and we have missed her. She often comes to me in this way, and although her lips are mute I seem 10 hear her say: "You will be better, too, when you come where I am." Shadows! more shadows! The old faces with silver hair. They cannot be old there, but how would I know them if they did not retain their earth semblance? It is she, the mother of many children; her eyes grew sunken watching by death-beds. They were "homes of silent prayer." Her lips move. She singing. It is an old tune that I have often heard : . . All c-h-i-l-d-r-e-n of the 1-1-v-l-n-g God, To II -1-s c-o-m-m-nnds we bow; Part ot the h-o-s-t h-a-v-c c-r-o-s-sed the flood -A-n-d p-a-r-t are c-r-o-8-slng now." Again the ashes fall. There is darkness,' the day of life is almost over. An, mere is ngnt: 11 is in the cast. What, is the night over? The shadows arc gone! 'We shall go home at evening, . And And It morning there." Tryins a Lawyer. A writer in the Fairfield (Me.) Journal hears a story with a moral from Poland Spring. One of the boarders there this summer was a young country lawyer with a small practice, who came to the hotel with an invalid sister. A rich old fellow from Philadelphia made his ac quaintance at the springside and was pleased with him. Now, this rich old man wanted an honest man to send to Europe on an . important business mission. He thought this young lawyer would fill the bill, but proceeded to test him first. After gaining his confidence he told him of a plan he had for making money by a short but ver3' dishonest meth od. The young man listened atten tively, and then firmly declined to be a party to any such arrangement In vain the old man pleaded that scores of men occupying high posi tions to-day had made their start in precisely such a way. The young man was firm as a rock, lhe result was that the Philadelphian, being convinced of the yonnj man's integ rity, engaged his sernccs, and he is now on his way to Europe. PILES! PILES!!

No people are so tender, so gener ous, so lavish of active sympathy to wards the sick, the bereaved and the unfortunate. In States which, pro bably from an instinct under their circumstances just aud wise, refuse to recognize the right to subsistence by a legal provision for the poor whereby the idle and vicious would chiefly benefit nevertheless paupers by the visitation of God, the aged and infirm, hc blind, the deaf arid dumb, lunatics and idiots, are amp ly provided for by public and private charity, with all that can alleviate their lot, or teach them, as far as possible, the means of self-dependence. American cliarity towards the victims of great natural catas trophe, far more common there than here communities burned out by a forest fire or ruined by a flood and ye?. more the personal sacrifices made, the readiness with which men and women devote their leisure, thought and energy to the supervis ion of their public institutions, the succor and nursing of a community stricken by pestilence, the efficient distribution of public subscriptions, are above praise. A careful study of transatlantic examples might put our own boasted lavishness to shame. British Quarterly Iteciew. Old Baby.

Our best physicians gave my case up. 1 finally got so low that our doctor said I could only live twentv-fonr hours. My friends then purchased a bottle of DR. WM. HALL'S BALSAM FOR THE LUNGS, which considerably bene fitted me. I continued until I took nine bottles, arid I am now in per fect health." PerltaDS no local disease has puzzled and brffied the medical pro fession more than nitsal catarrh. While not immediately fatal it is among the most distressing, nau seous and disgusting ills the-flesh is heir to, and the records show very few or no cases of radical cure of chronic catarrh by any of the multi tude of modes of treatment until the introduction of Kly's Cream Balm a few years ago. The success of this preparation lias bcea most gratify ing nnd surprising. About the most cruel thing, that has been reported from Connecticut lately was the conduct of three citi zens of Norwich, who were on Nian- tic Bay recently in search of ducks, A gale was blowing, and a bevy' of quail, which had evidently been blown off shore, alighted on the duck shooters boat, too weary to fly any- further. The shooters deliberately shot ten of the tired little fellows, and the few that escaped went wear ily winging their way out over the bay, and doubtless were drowned. Sick headache, is the bane pi ma ny lives to cure and prevent this an noying complaint use Dr. J. II. Mc Lean s Liver and ividney l'ellcts, they are agreeable to take and gen tie in their action. 2o cents a vial Peksoxs who lead a life of expo sure are subject to rheumatism, neu ralgia and lumbago and will find a valuable remedy in Dr. J. II. Mc Lean's Volcanic Oil Liniment, it will banish pain and subdue inflamma tion. The ballot is king to-day. Co lumbus Dispatch. This is an open handed slap in King Bob's face. FOR THE SPIRIT.
