Yon see John John's my hnsband was foreman of the night hands in the factory for a long time. He went to his work at six at night,and came nome at nve ociock in iue morning; so I had to stay alone all flight, r the same as alone, anyway, though the child there was company j for me, but for all the help sheM be in any trouble that might happen, I miarht as well have been entirely alone, you see. r ' : I never was afraid of burglars, be cause " we hadn't anything they'd think, it worth their while to come after.!.:And then we didn't hear much about them in those days though ..they've, got to be plenty enough since Ifl'.d heard as much about them 'then as I do now, I pre sume I would have felt timid. But s tt was, I felt as safe as j-ou please; and when John used to coax me to , let blra get a" boy or a big dog to stay with me, I always told him I didn't want to be bothered with 'em. . One day, a friend of John's, who hjt1 "been working in the factory a long time, and saved up quite a lit ,Jlc sum from his wages, got tired of fbat kind of life, and said he was going to quit it, and find him a little farm somewhere, and settle down. .1 knew what that meant He'd ta iken a fancy to a girl .that worked in tho factory, and he wanted to make a home for hinuelf and a wife. Ie and John had always been the Lest ?f friends, so it was quite nat ural he should brinsr his money here, and :isk Job n to keep it for him till he wanted to nee it. He didn't want . to carry.it with him, he said, while he was looking up the little farm he hJd set his mind on buying. John told him Le had better put it in the bank, where it would be safer and growing a little, but he said he'd feel just as safe about it if he left it with us as he would if he put it in the bank, and he didn't think it would have a . chance to increase much before he got around to use it, .because he calculated to buy his ' farm soon as .he found the one that sutte4 bim. '- So he left It There wss a trifle over a thousand dollars, he told John, and I thought by the way he looked at it when be gave it to my husband, that he felt all his chance for the future was wrapped up in the bills. They represented, the home , he had set his heart on having, you see, and I could'nt help thinking what if- he should lose it? John took the money and put it " in the till of that old blue chest in ifce ODrner there. That was one Sun dnv rwvrning, when John didn't have to be at the factory. ? I always shall think the man was looking" in through the window, and saw John put it there. He had been prowling about the house, I suppose,and hap pened to look in at just the right time. Any war, that's what I al ways believe about it, for how else, J'd like to know, should he have iaown ftny thing about it?. But there, Trn itjlin yon my opinion,and what you wfint t( beer. I suppose, is what 'happened.- " '. One stormy night, about a week after that.John went off to his work as usual. I felt kind of nervous Bome way,though I couldn't tell why I felt so. I've wondered, good many . times since then, if I didn't have a sort of presentiment of what was going to happen. But I made up my mind that it was the storm and the wind that kept bowline f the house that made me feel s, ia4 J didn't say a word to John abontit. The : child, there, was about twe years old then. I told her stories for an hour or two and then, when ; she began to feci sleep', I sung to her, and it wasn't long before she was tucKcd in bed fast asleep. Then I gof my knitting and sat down by the fire and worked until the clock struck nine. By that time I was sleepy and concluded!1!! to go to bed, tOO. ; .'. , I must have slept about three hours, for when I woke up the big clock on the citv hall was striking midnight. As I lay there, listening to the clock, I heard a step in the hall. The first thought that came to me was that something that had happened at the factory, and that John had come home. But as the steps came ' near the door I knew they were not John's. I was wide awake in a min ute, and the wonder is that I didn't get up at once. At first I thought I would, and then I thought per haps it would be better to keep still and see what was going to happen. Getting tip and rushing out into the other room wouldn't help matters any, and it might make them a good deal worse. The steps came to the kitchen door and then paused. Then I heard the door opened softly and some one came into the kitchen. The door between the kitchen and bed-room was open a trifle, and as I looked out I saw a man witu a lantern in his hand; he stood there listening. Yon can well believe I was fright ened. I didn't dare to stir or scream. I just lay still and looked out of the least little bit of a crack in my eye lids. I knew the man as soon as I. got n look a.t his Xace He was great, .bmly' fellow, who had lew-a Jmud in the factory some time back. I had heard John say that he had been discharged lieeause the propri etors thought he stole. - ' ' He stood there less than a minute, I supiose, but it seemed to me that it was more than an hour.- Then he came toward the bed-room. He pushed the door open softly and looked in, holding up his lantern that he might see through the open ing. I shut ray eyes tight then. He stood there and watched mo for a time, with the light shining full in my face. It was terrible, terrible. I didn't dare move a muscle. I was in agonv for fear the baby would wake up. ' I felt sure then, and 1 do now, that ue would nave Kiuea me if he had thought I was awake. Yon can't have any idea of what I suffered as . I lay there. It Beemed to me that my life just depended on keeping still, and to keep still under such circumstances was a pretty hard thing to do. I don t pretend to say that I m more courageous than lots of other women, but I don't believe yon can find many who would brave it out in that kind of danger better than J did. By and by be seemed satisfied that was asleep and turned away from the bed-room door, leaving it wide open, l saw mm go over xo inc out blue chest,and I knew then what he was after. . ' ' I breathed easier when his back was turned, .i auin i aare to sur. though, but just lay there with my eyes open and watched him." I saw him take a big bunch of keys out of his pocket and try several before be found one that fitted the lock of the chest Pretty soon he found one that would open it ' He turned the cover back against the wall and went to rumaging about in the till for the money that was covered upwith some old cloth and papers. It wasn't long before he found it and after making sure it was what he was af ter, he put in his pocket and shut up the chest You can t imagine how I felt when knew that poor Ben Green was likely to lose his money. He had worked so hard for it,and depended bo much on it to help him set a nome, that losing it would be death to him. I wouldn't' have felt so bad if it had been our own, I'm sure. When he had closed the chest he took up his lantern and came back to the bed-room door and looked at mc again to make sure, I suppose, that I was asleep. I shut my eyes again and deeeived bim as I had be fore. Then he went into the hall, but instead of going toward the front door he went the other way, and I heard him open the door into the cellarway. Like a flash it came to me that I could trap him if I was quick enough. I never stopped to think about what might happen all I thought about was saving poor Ben s money. I got out of bed,shp' ped into the hall, and was close be hind 'him as be stood looking down into the darkness. In less time than it takes to tell it I sprang against him with every bit of the strength there was in me, and he went tum bling headlong down the stairs. Then I swnng the door shut slipped the bolt into its place, and he was my prisoner. I knew he couldn't get out of the cellar unless he came through the door, for it wag walled up with stone, and I felt pretty sure of that door, for if you'll look at it, you'll see that it's thick and heavy. Dear me! How the man did rave and swear. It made my blood run cold to hear him. But I didn't stop long to listen.1 1 slipped on my dress, took the baby and wrapped her up in a shawl, and started to the nearest neighbor's for help. I got a boy to go Vo the factory for John, and the neighbor and I went back to the house. The man was trying to beat the door down wir.h something he had found in the cellar.when we got there. The neigblor had a pistol, and he was all rcaoy to fire at the man the minute he made a hole through the door. But before he succeeded in doing that John came, with two or three others, and they captured him without much trouble, for they told him they d shoot him like a dog if he didn't give up peace ably, and they wonld have done it, and he knew it. So, you see, I saved Ben's money after all, and the first thing John did next morning was to take it to the bank wouldn't have kept it in the house for anything. And that very day John gave .up his night job. and I haven't been alone a night since. I didn't know how frightened I re ally was until it was all over. But after they had the man, and I knew the money was safe, I seemed to give out some way, all at once and I had to go to bed; and it was two or three days before I began to-feel like my self. I tell you what it is, I don't want another such adventure. One's enough for me. Elcn Rcxford in Arthur'' Home Mognzine. According to his instructions the inscription upon the tomb of the late Count Bciist will be, ''Peace to his ashes; justice to his memory." From Our Regular Oorrcupondcnt. Wasuixgtox, D.CDec. 11, 1886. Congress, in less than a week from its reopening, has settled down to serious consideration of business. The reassembling of both the Senate and House were accompanied by scenes customary on such occasions. There were the usual crowds of spec tators in the galleries who looked down upon the same tumultuous dis orderly crowd on the floor of the House, all talking at once and at the top of their voices, and upon the quiet, slow moving men on the floor of the Senate Chamber, who began the new session with as little flurry as on any day of the old one. There were tne ustial handshak ings, and exchange of greetings, and flower bedecked desks, the Dcmo- Xvfti-su1e beins the most Invoice IrorSilyS which caused some Repub licans to remark that the change of flowers showed thechangcof the Ad ministration. To the victors belong the flowers. Representatives S. .tf. Cox and Abram Hewitt were the lions of opening day. When they entered the Hall arm in -arm, they were greeted oy n round of applause. Mr. Hewitt received congratulations upon his election to the Mayoralty, and expressions of regret upon his retirement from Congress. Those who had served in former Congress es with Mr. Cox gathered round him cordially, and those who did not know him sought introductions. Rep resentative Savers of Texas, who oc cupied, last session, the seat so long used by Mr. Cox, gracefully surren dered it to its former occupant and took the one vacated by Mr. Pulit zer. Mr: Cox has already added to his record by introducing a bill to pre vent representatives from receiving two salaries at the same time. He thus manifests his intention to de- line the Congressional salary which has accrued since Mr. Pulitzer's re signation. Republican papers glee fully distorted a recent statement to make it appear that Mr. Cox had ap plied for and wss trying to get two salaries one as minister to Con stantinople, and one as Congressman. As a matter of fact, he inquired of the Comptroller of the Treasury as to the exact money due him under the law so that he could act intelli gently concerning it. Comptroller Durham told him he was entitled to back pay since Mr. Pulitzer resign ed, and this bill jusC introduced shows what Mr. Cox intended at the time to do ;-.bout it While the President's message takes one all over Europe, to theSa- moan Islands, Siberia, the Spanish Antilles, to Mexico, "over South America, and into Canada and Alas ka, the five topics which excite the strongest interest, here are the Tar iff, the currency, thelabor question, civil service, and District of Colum bia affairs. The tariff reformers are all pleased and some of them are en thusiastic. The protectionists sav ncssage is conservative enough for them, lhe ultra silver men make complaints as was expected, and the Republicans criticize the document asV whole, and from force of habit Some of the more sluggish mem bers of Congress predict that little can be done during the session be yond the passage of the Appropria tion bills. Others equally wise say there is more chance for work dur ing a short than a long session, and hey expect to be very active from now until the fourth of . March. In fact there is little temptation to demagoguism, and talking for votes now and there is no reason why this Congress should not do more in Jan nary and Februarj' than in all the previous months.of its life. The mem bers are all either elected or defeat ed for the Fiftieth Congress, and mere partisan maneuvers will not af fect them. Then by :he committee work having been done last session bills are ready for action, and legis lation is i". excellent position to be pushed to completion. Congressman Anderson of Kansas comes back this winter a pronounc ed enemy of railroads, and gives a description of how public men are created and owned in his section by Jay Gould's purse. Gould is trying to control the legislatures and the representatives in Congress from the states through which his roads pass. Mr. Anderson says in his own dis trict not Ls8 than one hundred thou sand dollars were distributed to de feat him. He, estimates that the Mis souri Pacific Railroad alone spent $2,000,000 in attempting to send the friends of railroads to Congress from the State of Kansas. Mr. Anderson was formerly a straight out republi can, but he renounces his old faith and calls himself a member of the new Republican party, having been re-elected as an anti-monopoly Inde pendent Two years ago Republican proph ets were positive the country would go to ruin in consequence of . a re storation of the Democrats to power. Now they are compelled to see a steadv and general return of indus trial and commercial prosperity. The facts and figures of all the Gov ernment reports show this result, and indicite a largely increased vol ume of business throughout the country.

An Ex-Confederate jtarrles His Little Sweetheart of a Northern Hospital. New York Herald Washington Special. A recent copy of an Indiana pa per contains the following para graph: Married On November 27, by the Rev. Dr. -Turnbull, George A. Dawson, of Louisiana, to Miss Alice Lemon, of Washington, I). C. This marriage is the sequel to an unusually romantic story. George Dawson, a young captain in the Confederate armv, lay seriously in jured in 1864, a prisoner of war, in the United States hospital at In dianapolis. One of the ladies who visited the hospital frequently and ministered alike to the wearers of the blue and the iry was a Mrs. Lemon, the wealthy widow of a Un- wutiM " ''fa trsTtir ?i rs. Lemoji was 'iisuallr accompanied In ner daughter Alice, then a little miss of ten years.- A fast friendship sprung hp between the young Con federate and the little Union girl, which continued some .months nntil the former was exchanged and sent back to his rejiracnt Seven years ago Mrs. Lemon died. and Miss Alice, through the eA.rts of her Republican friends, secured clerkship in one of the depart ments hero. Her health gradually failed, and last October she resigned her position and went West -to re side with relatives.. The announce ment of her resignation was printed in one of the New Orleans- naners. where it bet the eve of Captain Dawson, now a dignified bachelor of middle age and one of the richest planters on the Lower Mississippi. Captain Dawson immediately wrote Miss Lemon and asked her if she was his little sweetheart of former years, and if so bv what caprice of fortune she had been thrown upon her own resources. Miss Lemon answered the Captain detailing their financial losses at the time of the Jay Cooke failure and the subse quent death of her mother. Cap tain Dawson thereupon mailed the lady a, check for $1,000, which he begged her to accept as a slight re compense for her mother's kindness to him while a prisoner of war. Miss Lemon returned the check, saying that under no circumstance could she receive it. Captain Dawson then came North to se if he could not personally prevail upo i the lady to accept his assistance. He went to Indiana, in tending to stop only a couple of days, but he remained a month, and when he returned last week he car ried with him a Northern bride to grace his southern home. : . The Height of Great MenT A correspondent inquires of us if there is any truth in the general be lief that the leaders of any nartic- age are large -men, "or ia it merely superstition?" ' There is a modicum of truth ih it. While there are numerous ex ceptions, it seems to be a fact that great poets, essayists, scholars and philosophical thinkers are, as a rule, small; while great generals, orators and politicians those who are en grossed in doing rather than think ing are, as a rule, above the aver age size of man. for it; those who There is a reason possess the most vitality are apt to make the biggest noise in the world. Washington was a large man; so were Cortez, Charlemagne and Wellington; so were Webster, Clay, .Tom Corwin, Tom Marshall. Lincoln, Chase, Sum ner; so are Gladstone, Bismarck, Ferry, .Cleveland, James G. Blaine and Gen. Sherman. When men who have won distinction are not tall, tnev generally ... maKe it up in breadth, like Bonaparte, Stephen A, Douglas" and Sheridan. The thinkers of the world have generally been small; as Cicero, Aristotle, Bacon, Alexander Pope, Alexander Hamilton and Oliver Wendell Holmes. The members of the senate, ever since that body was established, have been, it is alleged, about an inch taller than the aver age height of American men. Suc cessful American editcrs have gen erally been tall men, averaging six feet high and over 200 pounds, as the elder Bennett Thurlow Weed, James Watson Webb, Horace Grec ley, Wilbur F. Storey, Murat Hal stead, Joseph Medill,Whitclaw Rcid, Joseph Pulitzer, and Charles A Dana all fine specimens of full grown men. ' - Great orators are almost always large men,and such specimens as Jos, Cook, Henry Ward Beecher, Colonel Robert G. Ingersoll, Mr. Moody, Roscoe Conkling and De Witt C. Talmage are familiar to the eye of the pregent generation of Americans, These orators ore not only ' alike in weighing 223 pounds apiece, Lu they further resemble each other in possessing a keen sense of both hu mor and pathos, and in being coarse grained of the earth, earthy. If they had not been coarse of texture they would have died young, and if they were not large they would have lacked the physical strength to sur pass in the sharp competitions of their time.

What Lawmakers Receive In the Prin cipal Conutriesof the World. In Belgium each member of the Chamber of Representative receives 200 florins or 16 5s per month, or for the eight months 134. In Denmark the members of the Landsthihg and the Falkething are paid the same salary, 15s per day. The average number of working days in the session is 145; the total amount for the same is 113 15s. In Portugal Peers and Deputies each, get 19,000 francs or 350 a year; the Colonial Representatives getting, in addition, their traveling expenses. In Sweden, the , members of the Diet receive 1,200 rix dollars, equal to 66 14s for a session of four months, and their traveling expen ses. Members of both chambers are fined 10 rix-dollarsi or lis a day if In . SwitzerlamemberYpf the National Council receive 10s per day, which is paid out of the Federal Treasury. Members of the State Councils are paid by the cantons, and their salaries range from 6s to 10s per day. r - - In the United States Representa tives and Delegates each receive $5, 000 per year and their traveling ex penses at the rate of 10c per mile. In Norway the members of. the Strothmg receive 13s 4d a day while it is sitting, which is usually about twelve weeks. In Italy neither Senators nor Dep uties 'are paid, but they get free passes over all the railways in the kingdom, and some other concessions as to taxes and patronage, a most objectionable mod of payment, and long since condemned in this and other countries where simitar privi leges used to be conceded to tors. cgisla- a Spain the ' members are not paid. In Greece Senators get 20 per month and members of the Repre sentative Chamber 10 iMr month. In all the local Legislatures in Germany the members, with one or two exceptions, are paid,the salaries averaging In Prussia about 9s per ay and in Austria 20s per day. The members of Parliament of Great Britain, as is well known, re ceive no pay and have no direct pat ronage. Were the members of the House of Lords paid at the same rate as American Congressmen and Senators thtir salaries would amount to about 518,000, and the members the House of Commons would absorb about $670,000.

This is not responsible gov ernment in any sense. Supposing there were a peculiarly obnoxious Congress, the political complexion of which, on the biennial appeal to the people, is reversed. That Con gress would still have sufficient lease of life to burden the country with . undesirable legislation. And e might be times when such a Congress would thwart the will of the people relative to the Presiden tial succession. Instance the next Congress.

Yet at the election of 1888 a Congress, Democratic by States, might be cho sen. Its hands, however, would be tied until December, 1889, and it could do nothing. The lapping of the sessions of Congress over the biennial elections is a relic of the ancient days before telegraphy, rail roads and the newspapers had nar rowed the circumference of the Re public. It would now be no trouble at' all for the newly elected Congress to convene in the January following election as most of the Legislatures do, and thus give us a measure of responsible government,' in respect to which the British system of di rect appeal, and in the event of de teat, immediate surrender to the peo- le, Is far beyond us, Siberia Drjrlnff Tp.' .
