WM. NASH, .Editor. "Truth and. ice. " igsi SO in Advance GALLIPOLIS, OHIO, THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 1876. VOLUME XLI. NUMBER 49 [From the Inter-Ocean.] AH SAM AND SIN NOT. Judge Sinnot fully explains the in come business New Tork World. Which I wish to remark. And ray language Is plain, That for ways that are dark. And for tricks that are vain, The reformers are very peculiar, Which the same I would rise to ex plain. Sin Not was his name, And I shall not deny That he failed to observo What that name might imply, But Sin Not was only a lawyer. And Ah Sam, he employed htm to lie, 'Twos the year sixty-two, And soft were the skies, And perhaps its inferred, That Ah Sam. was likewise, But he played it that time on our uncle In a way that he tnougnt miguty wise. "Which they had a small game, And Ah Sam tooka hand. It was a swindle the same -He did not understand Bat he smiled as he swore to his in come, "With a smile that wa3 child-like and bland. But the stocks that were "slid" By thatsmilingChlnee, And tho funds that were hid, It was frightful to see. And among them was that twenty thou sand "Which tho-'-Alton" had paid unto he. But he was not so sly As he meant, for to be, And he swore once too much In that "Alton melee," And the boys got a holt on the papers And they went for that sweating Chinee. In the scene that ensued He did not take ahaud, But Sin Not was imbued "With the courage to stand And declare such a thing as a swindle Was what Sam did not understand. But his purse, which was long, Ilad been used to conduct The proceeds of the wrong Into his own "usufruct;" And they found that his neck was well feathered, From the numerous geese ho had plucked. Which is why I remark, And I do not complain, That for ways that are dark, And for tricks that are vain, Ah Sam is the "chief of his equals," Which is the same I shall ever maintain. AH SAM AND SIN NOT.-H. LONG. GRANDMOTHER'S REMINISCENCES. "A decided success, except the po tatoes," was Anna Ilolworthy's ver dict in regard to her centennial din ner, as she and John, and Grand mother Tyrcll sat and sipped the ice cream which made its crowning glory. "You need not try and look as if you did not mind, John," she added, trying to frown sternly at her husband of a week. "You know that those potatoes were all lumps, and the egg on the top wouldn't brown, do what I would." "I'm satisfied," said John, cheerily. "It's grandma's duty to say some thing unkind. She promised to love, honor, and be a mother-in-law to me, and America expects every woman to do her duty in this centen " "Now, John!" remonstrated Anna, while Grandmother Tyrrell smiled placidly and said: "I never object ed to potatoes, however badly cook ed, John, for 1 never can seo one without thinking of the days when I used to cry because there was no thing to eat but potatoes and milk, and my sister Mary cried because there wasn't enough of that." "Was that during the war?1 asked John. "Not exactly. Yon forget that I shall not he a centenarian, as you call it, for five years. Why, mother used to tell me, thongh, that our bard times were nothing to those that she saw in the war. . While Grandfather Tyrrell was away she took care of us little ones almost without any help. His pay was but scanty, at best; and after the Conti nental money depreciated it would not have been worth sending home, even had he not needed every cent of it to keep him alive. Mother spun, and wove, and sewed not only for herself, but for her neighbors; and tilled our little garden patch with her own hands; and cut hay for the one cow that was our mainstay and support; and put on a brave face when father was home on leave, and said that she was doing very well. Bat she broke down at last, and when he was discharged and came back to Berwick she had been obliged to sell our little house, and we were all huddled together in what Anna would call a hut a little square one-roomed place, with a door and two windows and a chimney, just like those shoe-shops that you'll s.ee down in Essex County. It was not much of a welcome for a re turned patriot, was it? It seemed to discourage father; and my sister Mary has often told me how he turned white and sat down and groaned aloud when he first looked around the poor room. I was only two years old then, and do not re member much ot that; bat 1 never shall forget the day, three years af ter, when he died. He never was ' well after he came home. An old wound opened again and again and again and kept him weak; and final ly he overworked himself in the hay field one summer day, and the end came, "He lav on the high bed that mo ther had pulled out in the middle of the room to give him air, and one oy one she lifted up us children to hear his last Tvords. They were not very grand or impressive we were only common people; but they were kind and true and loving, and, al though the oldest of us five was but twelve years old we all felt the force of what he said and wept. Then he bade my mother good-by. They , were still young (he was but thirty tt and she not yet thirty, and it was hard to part; but she was very firm and quiet Iho women of our family take their troubles silently, John, remember. Don't think that Anna does not care abont a griev ance because she doesn t make outcry about it. My mother stood with one hand in my father's and fanned him with the other steadily, steadily as clock work; and gazed at herns if he would take her face into heaven with him. 'You'll have a hard time, I doubt,' he said, moving restlessly about; 'but God will watch over you, and he, Wash ington, will never see the soldier's families suffer. He's thoughtful and kind, he, Washington.' And then his mind wandered, and he died last with his beloved General's name on his lips." "Did vou ever see Washington asked John, after a little pause. "If I only might have!" said grandmother wistfully. "If I only could remember that his hand ever rested on my head, if I had ever heard him speak one word! But my eyes never saw his face. My mother told me that he was very grand and stately; but my father always seem ed to think most or his bravery in battle and his tenderness to his men." "Didn't your mother ever get pension?' was John's next ques tion. "Dear me, no. Strange how you men who were in the last war al ways ask that. She tried, and Par son Greenough wrote a letter for her, but nothing ever came of it, and af ter she died my brother James' law yer took it up 'and tried for twenty years, and finally, in 1855, we got $150, and the five of us and the lawyer shared it between us. As we had paid him fees before and made many journeys back and forth to sign papers, we decided that it cost us about seventy-five dollars." "Tell John about the times that came next," said Anna, after the lit tle party were established for the evening in the parlor grandmamma very erect and stately, with her high chair and footstool; John very com fortable in Iiis camp-chair in the bay window, and Anna nestling by his side on an ottoman. "Do," said John. "I know heaps about the times that tried men's souls I haven't read anything else for months; but I don't know much of the times that tried their bodies." "I should have to give you the story of twenty years of hard work, to tell you all the hardships I endured on account of my father's enlisting," said Grandmamma; "but you can stop me when I travel so far bc3oud the clay we celebrate as to become stupid. To begin at the beginning, then, my mother" found- herself Mn 1786 with six hungry mouths to fill and nothing to put in them, and little strength to work to provide anything. Ours was but a poor neighborhood at best. Nearly all the farms were in bad condition, on account of their owners having been absent for years. Nobody wanted help, for everybody left everything undone that his own hands could not accomplish. But, out of charity, our next neighbor agreed to take my oldest brother as a chore-boy, and poor Jim went away. It seemed "hard to mother, I do not doubt, to send such a little fellow out into the world to earn his own living; but poor thing, she had to harden herself to it, and in three years she had sent us all away. Lucy, who was always the prettiest, was adopt ed by a rich Englishman who came to Berwick for his health; Charley was apprenticed out; Mary went over to Great Falls to learn to do house work; and when I was eight years old I was an apprentice girl, as they called it then, in old Daddy Bailey's house, at Portsmouth. Mother did not want to send me away so young; but it was a good place and tho doc tor said she must die soon with con sumption and she wanted to provide for me. Hers was the old-tashioncu consumption, however, and she lived twenty years longer; always feeble and delicate, but working steadily to the-end and trying to lay up some thing to make up to us for our hard childhood. "Daddy Bailey's family were kind to me in their way; but oh! how I had to work. There was another ap prentice, a girl about fifteen years old, .and a' house-keeper; but such a number of errands as they found for me to do! Such scrubbing of and irons and polishing of tables, such endless sweeping and sanding of floors, such miraculously accurate dusting as they made me do! I of ten think of what an odd little figure I must have been as I bustled about my tasks. My gowns were very full and were made with a puckering string around the waist and another at the neck. They were open at the back and showed the petticoat be neath; but as mine were usually nothing particularly to be proud of, I never cared much about this fea ture of my costume. My sleeves were short and tight and ended just below the elbow in the stiffest and scantiest of frills, which by no means softened the effect of the roughness and redness that constant exposure had given to mv arms. I usually had two dresses at a time, and when my everyday sown was worn out my 'meeting" gown took its place and a new one was bought for me Sun days. Moreover, these dresses last ed a long time, because I almost in variably wore a great apron of tow cloth, reaching from my neck to my feet" "Those were the days of republi can simplicity and calico," said John, slyly pulling Anna's hair. "Tell me some more." "Days of republican simplicity," repeated the old lady, "they may have been; but as calico was seventy- five cents a yard, I knew very little about It Bine drilling and brown stuff were the materials of my gowns, sir. Cotton cloth was seventy-five cents a yard then; and; as I grew an he at a older and tried to earn money by do ing plain sewing 1 was quite content that it should remain high, lor tue price of making an undergarment was always the same as that of yard of the cloth that composed it. Longbefore that time I had learned to spin, and weave, and spin on the little wheel; and when I married every garment that I wore, except my shoes and the ribbon on my bon net, was the work of my own fingers. I was only ten years old when they taught me to spin, and it wasn't long before I wouldn thave been atraidto do a dav's work with anybody. But my spinning money went to Daddy Bailey, and so I tried to learn some thins else, that I conld do at odd times and earn something for myself. I did a little coarse sewing for one and another, and I learned to knit spatter-dishes and 'gallowscs'-braces, you call them, John. Then I got somebody to teach me the stitch, and I learned to do barleycorns, and French knots, and braid work, and satin stitch, and feather stitch, and don't know what And I embroider ed muslin in colored silk for the la dies, and braided and sewed straw; and when I was fifteen I bought my time of Daddy Bailey, and began to earn wages. I stayed with him still; but I was house-keeper now and had two apprentices to mind. "Portsmouth was a very old-fasn- ioncd place then and for years after. Many of the old families kept negro servants, who had been slaves and were very obsequious m their man ners to their masters and very fine to everybody else." Anna slightly astonished John by arising at this juncture, putting on an air of flunkeyish importance and asking agressively: "xou see gem- man rioun t end o' Long Wharf dis morn in' white hat, white top boot, cane in hand; glub on, watch in pocket? Dat was me." Grandmamma laughed softly. "So you have not forgotten poor old Caa sar Langdon's speech," she said. Cajsar was old Gov. Langdon's ser vant, John, and his airs were amazing. The Governor was a gentleman of the old school; but Caesar was twice as dignified as he. He met Master Pen- hallow one morning and made that speech, with all the gravity imagina ble. My duties as housekeeper were to see after everything about the place and I was responsible for every thing. It was necessary for me to be the last to go to bed and the first to rise, and in pig-killing and soap boiling time I had no rest Wc never bought an lard in those days. We tried out our own, and the process involved a vast amount of lifting heavy boilers and no small risk that tho stun" .would, take fire. We did all our own churning, too, and all the working of the butter fell on me. Still I had leisure to sew, and I drew in' two rugs and made a rag carpet and braided some mats." "Where did you ever find time to goto school?' demanded John. "Bless you, child," said grand mamma, "I never went I taught myself to read and write, asking Miss Bailey a question now and then; and I never read many books until your grandfather began to teach me." "Where did you meet him first?' asked Anna. "At a dance at a neighbor's. There were not many public balls then; but there were innumerable pleasant parties, with dancing. It was just the same then as it is now; the poor emulated the rich and the rich strove to outshine each other. Going to these parties was what spoiled ray hair, Anna. I heard John scolding you before you were married for cut ting off a few locks on 3our temples. When I was a child I wore my hair cut straight across the forehead and hanging straight down behind, ex cept a small cluster of locks, which were tied together with a string just below the top of my head. Etch girls wore a ribbon. When I grew older I used" to cut my hair off short at the sides, and frizzle and curl it with tongs, and powder it till my face looked like a full moon coming out of a fog-bank. I broke and burned my hair all off in a few years and have worn a false front ever since. So please don't talk of the frivolousness of 1876 any more, John. We were quite as bad in 1796, 1 assure you." "What did you live on in those days?" asked John. "Potatoes and milk?" "Not exactly," said the old lady. "Pork and beans and Indian pud ding for Sunday, succotash for Wed nesdays and Fridays. Salt fish was a rarity reserved for special guests. When a person gave parties cake was the principal refreshment, and the richer it was the better. Sponge cake was a great dainty. Miss Bailey al ways made It herself. Floating isl and was also deemed a great luxury. Wine, rum, spirits, and East Indian sweetmeats were also served in pro fusion. One of those parties would usually thoroughly fatigue every wo man belonging in the house in which they were given. Housekeeping was hard work then, and it was not so easy to be neat and clean as it is nowadays." "Tell him about Miss Bailey," said Anna. "Well, there isn't much to tell," was the answer. "Anna means, I suppose, for me to tell you that Miss Bailey never washed her face in any thing but milk, and very little of that; and polished her neck with a bit of flannel, never touching soap to it She wore long lace ruffles, to make her hands look small; but neither frills nor fingers were often washed, lest one should be torn or the other roughened. Her caps were always of fine lace, and she combed her hair over a higher cushion than was worn Dy any body else in the city. She had seven of those brocade gowns that are so much thought of now, at ono time. She was a very fine lady; bqt I hated to e&t after her a cooking, for she sprinkled snnff all over everything. "Tell us about your courtship," said John, apparently a little pleased with this view of bellehood in the olden time, and preferring to change the subject to one which naturally seemed more interesting to hira. "There's not much to tell," said grandmamma, faintly blushing, draw ing up her slender, erect ugure and giving her chin that pretty move ment known in her day a3 bridling. "Your Grandfather Tyrrell was the cleverest carpenter in the Kitten yard, and the men used to tease him about working so hard lor the Gov ernment; and one day Jim Acker man said to him: 'You'd better go and marry Bailey's pretty house keeper. She's just such another worker as you. And all the rest chimed in, and gave him no peace until he promised to go to a dance where he could see me. I had made myself very fine that night in a tam boured muslin gown and a frilled dimity petticoat and Miss Bailey had made the apprentice powder my nair for rae and lent me some jet pins of her own; and I wasn't the worst- dressed person .in the room when j'our grandfather came in and saw me dancing with -tiayian Lord, we saw me home that night and vibited me often; and how Daddy Bailey used to scold about his keeping me up nignts. He scolded a long time, though; for we were not married un til I was twenty-five 3'ears old. We wanted some money to start on, you see; and so I kept my place and he worked in the yard until 1 was ready and went to hira with my chests full of webs and webs of linen and home spun and with piles ol qtiuts and counterpanes. My own hands were 3'ellow for weeks with dying the cloth for the comfortables with annotto and my fingers were sore with the quilt ing. 1 had two big teacher beds, too, for Daddy Bailey had let me keep Ihe geese on halves for a 3'ear or two and I had wonderful luck with poul try For sickness I had bags and bags of herbs that mother had sent me, and so wc began our married life prepared for everything. I've never been sorry for those hard da3's, or laid it up that I might have been bet ter off if father hadn't died from be ng a soldier. Somebod3' must suffer, you know; ana 1 learned now to do all kinds ot work, and, alter all, I've had a pretty good time in this world." "Grandmother," said John, "I think ou must be what they call a notable woman. May be," said she. Valentine Stephenson, in The Independent. For the Gallipolis Journal.

Isaac Allen, a celebrated clergyman, was a cripple, so that-one of his legs was considerably- shorter than the other, so that ho limped a good deal in his gait. When an un dergraduate of Harvard University, returning to his room one night with a gronp of fellow students behind him, he overheard one of his compan ions quoting from the Book of Proverbs, "The legs of the lame are not equal." Whereupon Mr. Allen faced immediately about, and crushed the offender effectually by quoting the last clause in the same verse, "So is a parable In the mouths of fools." A Monster Balloon to Carry Up Fifty Persons. Paris Correspondence New York World M. Gifford has devised tho con structioVof a balloon for 1878 which will far-surpass nn3 effort hitherto made n this direction. This new balloonjwill be formed of a resisting material, solid, absolutely impermea ble to hydrogen gas, manufactured of alternates snceis 01 linen and caout chouc, protected externally by seyo ral layewrof varnish, and coated with white pilnt to diminish the effects of uie suss rays, in is oaiioon will have aicanacitv of nearlr 710.000 cubic feet, and will form an immense sphere, jthe greatest ever constructed, the dfajiieter of which will not be less than" 112 feet When moored to the ground the balloon will form a monumental dome lob feet high, ex cecding; by. lo.feet the height of the AradeJtKorephe. The balloon itself will weigh 8,800 pounds, and to join the piccbs together of which it is com posed will take nearly four miles of sewing, with 22 miles of thread. The car of the balloon will form a galley oO feet in circumference. A circular space inUhe center of teir feet in di ameter frill be reserved; in the cen ter ol this space the cable, a power ful ropciof -ten inches in circumfer ence, will be joined to the unner cir cle by means of an apparatus which will constantl y Indicate the ascending power or the balloon. This aerial machine will be held to the earth "by eight cables, attached to iron rings fixed securely in masonry, and will be suspended abovea vast conical basin The carwlll bo reached by two mova ble gangways, and trom forty to fifty persons will be taken on board at each ascent The cable will descend to the bottom of the conical basin, and by means of a secure system of wheels .will be carried along a tunnel to be worked bv au engine of 200 horse power. This cable will be 1, 730 feet in length. The captive bal loon will be placed in the center of a circular inclosure, 333 feet in diame ter. It will tower above the beauti ful gardens, and will form the mo3t elevated dome in the Champ de Mars. With this balloon it will be possible to raise more than 200,- 000 visitors 1.G60 feet above the earth during the continuance of the Exhibition. They may con template from that height, sur passing that of eleven Arc3 de Priomphe, the line tableau of the city of Paris and its surroundings. 31. Gifford proposes to construct this enormous machine entirely at his own expense, it will cost several hundred thousand francs. Sir William Thomson on the Center of the Earth. [From the London Spectator.] ¬ livered by Sir William Thomson, in tho Physical Section of the British Association, on the subject of the fluid or solid nature of the earth's kernel. While not denying that certain portions of the earth's interior are in amolton or fluid state, Sir William Thomson maintained, on various more or less recondite grounds, that no large proportion of the earth's in terior can, by any possibility, be in the -condition of molten fluid. "I may say, with almost perfect certain ty, that whatever may be the relative densities of rock, solid and melted, at or about the temperature of lique faction, it is, I think, quite certain that cold solid rock is denser than hot melted rock; and no possible de gree of rigidity in the crust could prevent it from breaking in pieces and sinking wholly below the liquid lava. Something like this may have gone on, and probably did go on, for thousands of years after solidifica tion commenced; surface portions of the melted material losing heat, freezing and sinking immediately, or growing to the thickness of a few meters where the surface wonld be cool, and the whole solid dense enough to sink. This process must go on until the sunk portions of crust build up from the bottom a sufficiently close-ribbed skeleton or frame to al low fresh Incrustations to remain, bridging across the now small areas of lava-pools or lakes." That is a striking picture of the growth of the "round earth," which was once supposed to have been made from the first "so fast that it can not be moved." We are rather sorry to be robbed of the belief in the cen tral lava ocean after all. The richest heiress in the world was married in London, the other day, when Hannah de Rothschild, the ouly daughter of the late Baron Me3er de Rothschild, vedded Lord Rosebery, the noted turfman. The late Baron was a great sporting man, and he was also very much attached to Lord Rosebery, wao has now ta ken to himself one of the most amia ble if not the handsomest, of all the Rothschild ladies. Lord Rosebery was born in 1847, and is consequently in his twenty-ninth year. The late Baron left $-10,000,000, and his daughter, being his only chi'd, re ceived $35,000,000 of it under her father's will. The Rothschild's are very averse to these marriages; and eren when Hon. Eliot Yorke, about two years ago, married Miss Annie de Rothschild, the second daughter of Sir Anthony Rothschild, the feeling about the marriage was so keen that Sir Anthony forbade it It took place, however, though her father re fused to give her a dowry. The ex- equerry to the .Duke ot .ainuurg could afford to put up with the loss, for she had an income of ,18,000 per annum which she derived from her grandfather. Thirty years ago, in Hawkins County, Tenn., four brothers married an equal number of sisters. They now have fifty-four children-, on a average of thirteen and a half to each family. BANKING.
