" Yes, sir, it's a queer thing; about
that ring, as there's a mate to som'eres.
I tlun'no ad I ever told any one how 1
come by that rinw, which the way of it
was a little peculiar, but I don't mind
telling j-ou if you'd like to hear it.
i' All light, then, sir; put your feet
up onto that box o' mine if you can
ride any comfortabler. that-a-way.
TharTkee, sir, I. doncare if I do, see
in's you offer it. You carry better ci
gars nor mine, I suppose, but then you
see, sir, mine is to sell an' yours is fer
your own smokin":, won'erful difference

fmtie.'you knowj I see a sight o' differ
tnt'i people course notbiu' naturaler
you'll say but what I mean is, I see the

reg'lars we have, goiu- up an' down,
aiX',fr aTJ hardly (ever speak to any of
'era, nor them to nie, fcept "in the way
of makin1 change or sich like. Still I
believe I could tell you as much abont

families could, -"p'raps more. That

iiait-th story of this here ring, tho'
bearin'on It. , XV 1 :
-".The first time ever I laid' eye3 on
this yere ring was about lemme see
yeep about seven' years'ago. I was
new on the line then, an' took a power
ful sight of notice o' what was gom'ont
tho' p'raps 1 take jest as much now, ;
on'y ira diflerent way. . ;- . Z'
-"It was in the fall o'- the year, jest:
about this time, inebbe a. little earlier,
inebbe a little later; any WAy the drop

ler miles it runs through that stretch o'
woods as we'll come, to presently; an-' I

kelt up fer tof Jiave it out ;?ith- us; fer
disturbin 'em. QueerLsh kind of a fancy
that, too, come to think of it, but that's
the way they looked to me, any way.
" There's a little shanty about mid
way in them woods we'll come to 'em
soon now, an' you can see for yourself
as the train hands call Stump Station,'
cos there haint nothing there sides the
shanty but stumps. Sometimes the
shingle-weavers and bark-peelers as
camp out way back in the woods come
out there to - board Ihe train, or to git
provision,, which i expressed up to
them from the, City, an' sometimes in
the shootin' season a' city feller or two
come up to hunt, gits off there, but it
haint no reg'lar station, an' nobody

" But this time I'm tellingyou of, and
while I was standin' out there on the
platform tryin' to calculate how long
it -would bo at the rata.1 was makin'
money (times was better then) before I
could say some words I had in my mind
te say, as soon as I was well enough
fixed, to a certain little dark-eyed gal,
as i was sure was - waitin' patient and
expectin' of me to say 'em. Don't mind

that cpme out all right long ago, an'

was the most sensible ones I ever said.
Well, as I was a standing there, out
comes a young feller as had come up
rM,.io-tiph, lie was a
nobbv-Iookins feller, dressed out all

high-top boots, dogs an' guns, an' bir

had my notions that this feller could
bite too: as well as snarl, if it so pleased
him, and I says to myself, thinking cf
him, 1 ou 11 bear watching, you will,'
an' kep' a eye on him accordm'. ' " i.
" Well, sir, that gent wore on the lit
tie nnger oi nis leit band this same
identical hair ring. It took my notice
while a-talkin' tohim, though being
made ont o' two kinds o hair, an' one
sort I'd swear was off his own curly
pate. So, by and by, talkin' o one
thing an' another, I works around to
rings, an' finally made bold to say to
" That's a curus kind of a ring for a
gent to wear, sir.' . i ' r
" He looked at it, twisted it around
careless like, turned kind o' red and
laughed a little snarl still showing out
plain an' says , . . . .
" ' Yes, rather . neat . thing ; do you
fancy it?' . ,'
" 'Don't understand you, sir,' I says.
What might you mean ?'
" 'I mean, 6ays he, 'if you like it you
may have it; I'm rather tired of it my
self,' and with that he pulls ; it off an'
hands it over. ,
" 'Much obleeged to you, sir,' says I ;
'but I wasn't meanin' to ask for it, not
by no means.' ;
" 'Oh,:- he says, . 'it's of no conse
quence; ii X hadn't give it to yon I'd a
give it to some one else,' and with that
he turns about and walks into the car,
and I puts the ring on my finger, think-
in' it wouM make a pretty Keepsake to
give my little gal and when we eame
to Stump htation my gentleman gets
out, aogs and guns and baggage and
snan and an, an' that's the last 1 ever
see of At.
About two weeks after that time
thert was a verv urettv vounir ladv p-nt
j t ci j e
on the iram at Llm Station, just out of
1 hiladelphia, you know. She uidu
have nobody with her, and seemed kind
o' timid like and skeery ; never inoviii'
hardly out of her nrst posish, 'cent
when the train stopped at some station,
tho' being a tarough express we didn't
stop at many but when we did I no
ticed she alius pulled her thick black
veil down over her pretty face and kind
er turned her head into one corner o
the seat, lettin' ou to be asleep, an'
when any body came in or went past
her seat whicn some ol 'em as haven't
traveled much is allays a doin', you
know, sir, walkin'up and down restless,
an' goin' for drinks and changin' seats
continually whenever they did that
could see her give little jumps and look
kinder quick and fno-hrened like, an
the blood all rushin' up into her cheeks,
makin' them look prettier yet, and then
she'd git pale as death the next minit,
and kiuder push her hair back off her
temples with one little white hand, like
it was too heavy and hurt her ; and
'most all the while she kept twistin' a
little hair ring she wore on her linger,
aroun' and aroun', and a putting it up
to her lips once an' ag'in, when she
thought nobody was a looking. I'd a
give my hull stock of 'yaller backs' and
prizo packages to a' been in that ring's
place jist once; tho' of course the like
of me had no business to be even watch
in' her from behind the stove as I were,
it bein' fitter for me to have been think
in' of my own Janey awaitin' for them
words. ... .
" The moment I see that ring I jerks
mine off an' slips it .into my vest pock
et. The moment I see that ring" I ses
to myself. 'There's a mate to mine,'
an' says I to myself, 'Jack, my boy,
you keep right on takin' notice, it be
ing my opinion ther's' something np ;'
an' I ses to myself, 'I hope that there
snarly chap hain't been a-bitin' nobody,
as he'll feel sorry fer it when he comes
to die' an1 then I kept on a takin' no
tice, might clost. - .
" Well, we kept a goin' on, some git
tin' off here and there, and more gittin'
on, an' by an' bye gittin' off ag'in, till
along in the afternoon there was only
three or four passengers in the car,
which they were mostly 'samples,' or
traveling agents, as allays takes off their
boots an goes to sleep soon's they Strike
a seat:" But this here young - lady she
never moved out of her first seat just ;
set an' set, and got to lookin' tirederj
and pitifuler like, every mile. I drop- j
ped a Leslie into her seat once and for
got to take it up ag'in on purpose, but
she never looked at it; and so, tho1 I
was as sorry fer her as could be, an' 1
knew she'd had no lunch, cos she d
never got out when - the train -stopped,
an' . , she .hadn't a sinitch nor . sign of
satchel or luggage of any kind still I
was dub'us . about, offerin', to do any
thing, knowin' she was a real lady and
I wa on y strain Agent, and af orkard
hand, at Sayin', them, kind o' tilings at
best, an' ebe -4eirg all-alono' ami .
travelinV might; take it. ill.. . But
at last comin' iri an out, au'
seein' her siltin' there, lookin' so awful
lonesome and tired, and dark lines
a comin' under her big dark eyes, look
in' like 6he would cry but dasn't-4-and
by Hickory I'm glad she didn't, cos that
would a upset me quicker'n wink, being
one o' the things I can't stand no way,
to see a woman cry. So seein' she
would never make no more of herself,
I jist give myself a poke id the ribs to
kinder rile my courage, and I goes up
to her seat like I was after the Leilie,
and says, 4 Miss, excoose me mum,' ses
I, .' but you do look quite done up, if
you'll excoose me mum,' ses I, and I've
got a sister of my own mum, if you'll
excoose the liberty mum,' ses I, 4 an'
I'd humbly like to be of some service to
you mum, if you'd please to menshin'
in what way mum,' ses 1. '.
44 She looked up in a way as I can't tell
you of, sir, if I was to ever so hard, an'
she ses r You're very kind indeed,' she
ses, 4 and I thank you very much,' she
ses, 4 but I require nothing nothing,'
an' then she looked away agin, out o'
the winder, and I see her mouth twitch
an' her soft eyes flashin' with tears, aud
I thinks to myself, ' Jack, here's a lovely
good young woman as far above you as
the skies, and as has trouble, and here
you are a helpin' to pile it onto her;
you ought to be kicked oflin' the train ;
why don't you clear off and quit a
botherin' of her ' and so I did, makin
her the best bow of respect I knew how
and raisin' a lump on any eye-brow a
doin' it through inadvertently comin'
down too far an' hittin' my fore 'id , on
44 The next station we stopped at, was

back tho cliiny next trip, an' as, we was
well acquainted that was '"all riglit, and
so, I walks into the car with 'em, tho'
a shakin' all over, and I says, 'I hope
you won't think me a villi n, mnra', but
I think if you'd have the kindness to
take a little of these here provision you'd
likely feel better. (1 '
44 Well, I didn't think she would, but
she took 'em, thanking me in the pret
tiest way I can hear her yit (she ac
tually laughed a quiet little laugh when
shei see them four sanwidges which was
a leetle overgrown I spose), and then
she pulled, out her, pocket-book, .as.. was

grain to take pay for such a trifle o'
kindness to such a sweet young lady,
even if I was a little pinched, an' she
not lacking, as I could well sea by her
general get-up. ...
44 Well, sir, it got to be late in the af

ready to leave the train at the end o'

sir, if I ever feil r"ved to do somethin
that 1 had no oiv-H,ess to do, it was

that angel all alone in them woods. One
look from her would a took me ofTn
that train in a jiffy, an' the apples and
newspapers might a gone to Jericho
but what I'd a seen her safe to where
she was bound, though wherever a gen
tie, timid young thing like her could
wish to go in them lonely woods, two
hundred miles from her home, was
more'n I could make out. Hows'ever.
railroad trains ain't. no ways sentimen

un s, alter they're set down, long s
they've paid their fare. And so we
dashed on, leavin' her standin' there,
poor thing, an' the dead leaves falling
all around her and she not minding
them, but looking straight up the track
and into the sun going down in the red
haze at the end of it.
" That were the first time I see her,
and it were the last, an' of'en an' of 'en
I've thought it over since then, and
though I never heard a word of inquiry
nor nothm, still it's rny opinion as
something awful wrong happened near
along that time. An' I've never took
the ring ofTn my finger since."
IN THE FAUX
44 'I loved bim so ! Oh ! I did love
him so!' "
" Them was her very words, sir, which
she never changed 'em nor said nothin
else the whole time but them there. Not
a sign nor a breath of a name just
him.1 And she continaly agoing over
it, and over it, and over it, till it made
one skeery like to hear it, poor thing.
44 Such a night, too, as it was when
my man that's my husband, I mean,
sir, Drought her in. in the fall yes,
sir, and it a rainin' and blowin and
dark as a ink-bottle. He found her
to'rds night, he said, when he was on
the road home here, which he had been
over with a load of oats, sir, to the bark
peelers' camp.15 miles if its a foot. She
was wandering along the road, he said,
and didn't know where she was goin
it seemed, nor how she got there.though
she liKe as not got on one of the trains
at the shinty near there, though they
seldom stop, but that we'll never know,
I suppose, in this world ; and so he
brought her home with him on that per
ishing night and handed her over to me.
44 She was quite gone then, out of her
head, it being my belief that she didn t
know-rue from herself then, nor never
after, poor, poor dear, an' so young.
A man never -can see a thing till it's
poked right into his eyes and liollered
into both ears; excuse me, sir, but no
more he can't, and my man he 'heved
that poor creature was drunk or crazy
urunii! An, sir, 1 tninK it the man
who was the wicked cause of that poor,
forsaken child being a mindless wand
erer that night, could only ha' seen her
as I seen her, when l took her into my
own room and put her into my own
bed, he would have took the shortest
way ont of the world that he sent her
out of in misery and darknesss, and far
from her own. She was a lady born,
as could be easy seen by her hands, the
prettiest I ever saw so white and slen
der, though with nothing on them but
this little hair ring, as you say you've
seen the mate to, sir, and made of two
kinds one of 'em her own, I know be
ing the color of gold amost, and the
other Oh, I can't bear to think of
what the creature that wore that lock of
hair will have to answer for some day.
And of all her clothes, which in spite o'
the mud and dragglement, I could see
was of the finest and delicatest; there
was no name or mare ot any sort on
any. If she had a dropped out of the
clouds she couldn't a been more unbe
known, by any sign or token anywhere
4 Well, sir, I watched her through it
all, and cared for her like one of my
own which I am a grandmother, sir,
and was then, though not looking it I
lessay, being married very young.
She never knew it though. She never
got her reason at all, and not even the
little babe s cry it was a girl and looked
no more like her than I did not even
its cry as came from a strong pair 'o
lungs,; I insure you could seem to
bring any thing back to her, but just
that ne moan, so mournful and weary
like while she kept turning her great
bine eyes this way and that, lookin' and
lookin', though with no meaning in
them at all, just that awful wild stare
as if she was seeing straight through
the wall and a hundred miles away.
And so a tossing and turning and never
restingr but all through the night till
morning, and still through tho day till
night again, and never changing, only
getting weaker and weaker, she never
left off twisting her hands and crying:
'I loved him so ; oh, I did love him so!'
" The little babe was just a week and
one day old when she said it for the last
time in the world, and she had never
seen it to know it.
44 We buried her out under that old
beech, and not knowing what else to
put on it, we just wrote on the board,
as you can see for yourself, the date of
when she came and! them words of hers.
4,4 And the little one?' That's her in
the garden out there, seven years old
this month. She'll bear our name and
never know as long as I'm alive nor
after I'm gone, I hope but what it's
her own by right.
44 Yes ; it's a queer and very sad story,
sir, that's so an awful story, and it
makes me feel very sober when I think
of it, as I often do when I'm alone, and
I never go into that room when I'm
alone in the dark we've never used it
fin' seven year ago but what I seem to
hear that poor, dear child's heart-broken
and dyin' wail
44 'I loved him so. Oh ! I did love him
A Snake Attacks a Man In a Bngy.
Mr. Walters and his wife were return
ing to the city, says the Dallas (Ga.)
Commercial, in a two horse buggy from
a trip into the country. About seven
miles from town, on the Mansfield Road,
they passed a snake that was lying on
the side of the road, the great size of
which altf acted their, attention. After
passing the reptile, Mr. Walters con
cluded'he would turn back and kill it.
He turned the team around, drove back
to a point opposite the snake, drew his
pistol and fired at it, but without effect.
The horses, not being used to the report
of fire-arms, became restless and hard
to control, which caused the attention
of Mr. Walters to be diverted from the
snake, which ran rapidly to the buggy,
up the wheels, and on the dash-board
before the occupants were aware of it.
The snake, when it was within a foot of
the occupants of the oarriage, coiled the
lower part of its body, threw its neck
into a graceful curve, drew back its head,
and was just in the act of launching its
deadly fangs into Mr. Walters, when he
fired the "second shot. " This, though
misskig, hd the effect to cause the
shake to lower itself on the tongue of
ih& cai-riftg. Mr. Walters then fired
two mors .shots, one of which took
effect, aud caused the reptile to fall from
the carriage to the ground, and Walters
dispatched it with a stone. The reptile
was meaa&edV and found to be over six
feet long, and was thicker than a man's
wrist. . - .

BUI Ragsdale, the Leper Governor of
The San Francisco Chronicle says:
Our Honolulu exchanges annonnce In
brief the death of Wm. P. Ragsdale,
Governor of the leper settlement on the
Island of Molokai, Sandwich Islands.
The decease of so noted and remarka
ble a man in the prime of life deserves a
more extended obituary. 44 Bjll Rags
dale," as he was popularly known, was
a Hawaiian by birth, hLs mother having
been a native and his father an Ameri
can. By profession he was a lawyer,
peaking English as fluently as Hawaiian,
and the most noted orator of the
Hawaiian kingdom, whites and natives
included, and among the latter there
are many conspicuous orators. The
manner in which Ragsdale discovered
that he had the leprosy, as told by
himself, is most interesting, and es
pecially from a scientific point of view.
The deceased resided for a number of
years on the Island of Hawaii, and had
an olhce at Hilo, capital of the
island. One night he was studying up
a law case in which he was deeply in
terested, when the chimney from his
lamp ieii on the table. Although the
chimney was hot as fire, 44 Bill," in his
excitement, picked it up and set it in its
place without experiencing the least in
convenience, such as would naturally
result to a really sound person handling
a rea-not lamp-chimney. He reflected
for a moment, looked at his hand, but
8ould not discover" the least sign that it
had been burned.. -He then took off
and" put on tlie chimney repeatedly.
and with the same result. This
experience convinced him that he
was among the alllicted, and he lost no
time in communicating with the au
thorities. Au examination was made
and medical authority ' declared that he
was alllicted with leprosy. Dr. Trous
seau, for years a physician at Honolulu
but now a resident of the island of
Hawaii, made the principal examina'
tion. Up to this time no person on the
islands ever dreamed that Bill
Ragsdale had the leprosy and some
doubted even after the examination if
he was so afflicted. Bill, however, was
personally convinced that he was so
alllicted. The police did not arrest him,
however, owing to his exalted position,
as was common with those suspected of
being lepers, so he voluntarily delivered
himself up as a victim of the terrible
disease. He was then sent to Molokai
and installed as Governor of the leper
settlement, which position he held for a
number of years up to the time of his
death last month. Soon after his isola
tion from the world and his friends the
disease made itself more apparent, and
there were none so incredulous as to be
lieve that he was not forever afflicted
with the leprosy. During his adminis
tration of afiUirs he was as successful as
he was popular, 'here were and are
about 800 lepers on the settlement, but
by his tact and kindheartedness Rags
dale made the most extraordinary and
saddest community on the face of the
earth as cheerful and happy as the unfor
tunates could bei By his advice the Gov
ernment made many reforms, and the
lepers recognized him as a father. One of
the most peculiar and startling phases
connected with this episode is the fact
that Mr. Ragsdale, who was a married
man with a family, took tip with a
young native woman on the settlement
of Molokai who fell in love with him.
She was remakably handsome, of
splendid physique, and had already
buried two husbands or lovers for
both terms are substantially the same
with the Hawaiians free from missiona
ry influence. Both her husbands, as we
will call them, died of leprosy, yet the
wife, as she must be termed, was never
alllicted with it. She fell in love with
Ragsdale, and they continued to live in
the most perfect harmony, the wife not
having the least fear of being subject to
the frightful affliction of her husband.
She still survives him, and is in perfect
health, or at least was so not long ago.
It may be here remarked that there are
some seventy-live individuals on the
leper settlement who are not alllicted
with leprosy. These have voluntary
exiled themselves on account of the love
and affection they have for their friends
who are lepers. They mingle freely
among the sorrow-stricken, eating out
of the same calabash of poi.and drinking
from the same cup, chatting and talk
ing together on the same mat, and even
sleeping together. Still with this
promiscuous intercourse some of the
healthy persons, indeed the majority of
them, never catch the leprosy . In a
word, they have no fear at all of it.
WTho the successor of the deceased leper
Governor will be is not known. It was
believed at one time that, Peter Kao, a
cousin or uncle to lateen Emma, would
be governor, but by influence this lep
rous chief has been allowed to leave the
settlement and is now a resident of Hon
olulu. Peter had a nice cottage at Mol
okai, and, as becoming his rank, had
servants to wait on him. During his
sojourn there he enjoyed life as well as
could be expected, and had the good
will of the lepers at large. ow that
he is free, and Ragsdale is dead, it will
be difllcult to find the proper man to
fulfill so delicate a duty. The Hawai
ian authorities have many' faults and
shortcomings, but the humanity they
exhibit toward the lepers, In providing
and caring for them, is greatly to their
credit. The settlement is under the ta
boo ; that is, no human being is allowed
to enter the dreadful locality without a
special permit from the Board of Health,
at Honolulu. It is very dithcult to get
permit, so that not one foreigner in a
thousand ever can visit the leper world
A Duel that Did Not Come Off.
Another famous duel did not come off
about ten days ago at Sand Bar Ferry,
near Augusta. The failure of the fight,
however, can not be laid to the charge
of Dr. D. R. Fluker, the challenger,
who, when pursuing the even tenor of
his way, carries the saddle-bags in and
around the Geergia town of Irwinton.
Among his patients was a widow, who
gave him a horse in payment of his fee ;
and among the male inhabitants of Ir
winton was a lawyer, who claimed this
horse in satisfaction of a judgment
which he held against the son of tho
doctor's patient. Ihe dispute grew into
a quarrel, and the quarrel gave birth to
blows. The. man of quills and legal
cap issued a note to the man of squills,
charging him with cowardice and all
wickedness; to wnich the man of squills
replied by an invitation to meet at Sand
Bar . Ferry, where the painful contro
versy might be settled with Happholdt
pistols and other surgical instruments.
As the time for the meeting approached,
the Augusta hotels were overrun by
a queer incursion of men from Irwinton,
Toomsboro', and Sandersville : but the
challenged man was not among them.
At the appointed hour, sharp, Dr. Fluk
er embarked upon the flat-boat at Sand
Bar Ferry, and eagerly searched the
horizon for Lis expected foe ; but no foe
was visible upon the troubled tide of the
Augusta River, nor; upon its sloping
banks, nor yet upon the white wastes
of the sand bar. A telegram of
inquiry to ' Irwinton was answered
with the intelligence that the challenged
party, who was trying to get a living by
the law, had fallen by the law, that is
to say, he had been arrested to prevent
his further violation of the code against
duelling. Dr. Fulkner returned trium
phantly to Irwinton, but the Augusta-

SILYER U THE SENATE.

lutiuD leelarinjt Government fn"l
Payable In Silver Teaa 43, Kara 94.
WASltlNCTrt, Jan; At the eiplration of
the morning hour, consfaeratlon was reeom
eil of the resolution of Senatot Matthews, de
claring the right of the Government to paf
bonds in silver.
The amendment of Senator Conkllnir, mak
ing the resolution a Joint instead of a concur
rent one, was rejected yeas St, nay SO.
Senator Cockreil said he had received a
telegram from Senator Wbjte, of Maryland,
announcing that he was detained at home by
sickness and requesting him (Cockreil) to pair
with him. Under the circumstances he con
sented to do so. Were the Senator from Ma
ryland present he wonld vote aye and he
(Cotkrell) would vote no.
Senators Hoar, Butler and Hill, who wonld
havo voted In the affirmative, were paired
with Harris, Patterson and Garlandf who
would have voted in the negative.
Senntor 1'lumb announced his colleague,
Ingalls, was detained from the Senate on ac
count of sickness in his family.
The question then recurred on the amend
ment ot Senator Edniunds to the resolution
of Senator Matthews, to provide for the pay
ment of bonds in gold coin or its equivalent,
and declaring that any other payment with
out consent of the creditor would be in viola
tion of public faith and in derogation of his
rignts. it was rejected vea is, navs 44.
Messrs. Butler, Whyte and Hoar, who wonld
have voted in the altirnmtive, were paired
with Messrs. Patterson, Cockreil and Harris,
who would have voted In the negative.
The question then recurred on the amend
ment of Mr. Morrill, to the effect that it would
be detrimental to the economical int erests of
the Government and the people to pay bonds
In silver, mid .Mr. Morrill spoke in support
thereof. He said this resolution of the Sena
tor from Ohio, no matter froui what motive it
was introduced, could have and would have
no other effect than to damage public credit,
and he could not understand from what mo
tive it was brought forward, especially when
he saw in the platform the Republican
party ot onto, adopted in Ttf. that national
honor must be maintained, and recognizing
goiu as tlie true standard of value beopuld
not conceive how it was possible that a Ke
publican Senator from that State should come
here o soon afterwards and propose such a
resolution as this. If he (Morrill) was in favor
of the so-culled silver bill he could not vote
for this resolution with its preamble as now
urawn. rue amendment ol Morrill was re
jected, ayes 14, nays 41.
Mr. Win doin said he voted for the amend
ment ot the Senntor Iroia Xew .York (Mr.
Conkling) to make this a joint resolution,
anuue voted against an other amendments.
He now intended to vote against tlie original
resolution, and, m uoing so, he did not pro
pose to indicate what would be his vote up
on the Silver bid itself when it shall come be
fore the Senate. He was opposed to this
fruitless-expression of opinion, it Congress
n au connucu ttseit to practical legislation,
instead of discussing li nances, the business
ot tlie country would have been more pros
Mr. lllaine said he would Vote against the
resolution, as in his opinion it would not
strengthen public credit nor the interest of
public creditors. According to the letter of
tlie statute, these bonds were payable in eith
er coin, but he intended to show, if he could.
when the silver Dill should come before the
Senate, that it was not to the interest of the
United states to take advantage of the letter
of the law and pay them in silver. He was
opposed to the present Silver bill, but was in
lavor of remonetization of silver on a basis
which he would have the honor to propose.
Mr. Hill said he could not vote for the reso-
Jution because it atlirmed that debts of the
I nited States to-day were payable in silver
dollars, when there were no silver dollars.
If the silver dollar could he remonetized iu
any way to make it equal to the gold dollar,
a good thing would be done for the country.
He believed that silver could bo made equal
in value to gold in three ways: 1. Bv increas
ing its weight. 2. By limiting its coinage. 3.
liy limiting its legal tender power. He could
not vote to coin the silver dollar and a'Miin
throw upon this country adepreciated dollar,
that cheated every thing it touched.
Mr. Kdinunds moved to indefinitely Post
pone further consideration of the resolution.
Mr. Gordon said he wonld for the pre
amble and resolution of tyrSenator from
Ohio, because he believed the recital of facts
contained therein was true, and the resolu
tion suggested a policy which he believed to
be honest, wise and just.
.Mr. raauocK said he would vote for the full
remonetization of silver, but would not vote
for this resolution now beiure the Silver bill
became a law.
The motion of Mr. Edmunds to indefinitely
postpone was rejected yens!, nays 4J.

Mr. Edmunds then moved to amend the
preamble submitted by Mr. Matthews, by in
serting the following: " And whereas, by pro
visions of the Coinage Act of ls;3, passed on
the l.'tli of February of that year, and of re
vised statutes which took effect on the 1st
dav of December of that year, all provisions
of law authorizing the coinage of such silver
dollar were repealed."
Mr. Matthews said lie would accept tnat
Mr. Thurman hoped his colleague would
not accept it. He was not prepared to say the
law was repealed. The question involved
construction of the statute. There was no
necessity for this amendment, and he hoped
the Senate would stand by the resolution and
preamble as submitted by the Senator from
Mr. Matthews said If there be any difference
of opinion as to the construction of the law
he would not accept the amendment.
The amendment ot Mr. tunumus was re
jectedyeas 20, nays 3S.
The question then recurred upon the pre
amble as submitted by Mr. Matthews on the

was paired with Mr. Kandolph, who would
have voted in the negative, and Mr. Mel'her
son, who would have voted in the negative,
was out of the chamber temporarily when bis
name was called.
The preamble and resolution having been
passed, Mr. Allison moved the Senate take up
the House bill to authorize free coinage of
the standard silver dollar, and to restore its
ice-President. That comes up by prior
Mr. Morrill then took the floor to address
the Senate on the Silver bill, but yielded to
Mr. Ferry, and on his motion the Senate went
into executive session, and when the doors
opened the Senate adjourned until Monday .
A Perilous Ride.
A late special from Littleton, N. II.,
says : Readers of weather bulletins in
the daily papers seldom stop to lealize
the hardships to which agents of the
Signal-service Bureau are exposed at
some of the posts occupied .during the
year. The most dangerous for perma
nent habitation is probably Mount Wash
ington. Yesterday morning Sergt.
Cone and Private Murphy of the Signal
service Corps started from the station to
go to the foot of the mountain, the Ser
geant having orders to report at Wash
ington for medical treatment. They
took a sled on which they proposed to
descend, on the railroad track. After
sliding for nearly a mile without any
apparent danger, at a speed of fifteen
miles an hour over a smooth surface,
and in the face of a stiff breeze, they
came to the flat just above what is known
as " Jacob's Ladder," one of the sharp
est slopes of the range. Here they rest
ed, it being deemed advisable to lighten
the load by giving up the sled to Sergt.
Cone. He strapped on a light trunk,
and, adjusting the cog3, started on his
downward slide. On going over the
summit of the peak, he was going at the
rate of twenty-five miles an hour, but
this increased to forty as he got down
the side, and he was absolutely flying
down the mountain side, when ho lost
bis balance and was precipitated into a
snow-bank, a distance of, 100 feet from
the trestle-work. He struck upon his
head and shoulders, and when found by
Private Murphy, who followed him, he
was apprently dead. After re-storatives
had been administered he recovered,
and was removed to this town, where
his wounds were properly dressed. He
is badly bruised about the shoulders,
head and face, but no internal injuries
are thought to exist. ,

have ready small tins lined with puff-
paste, put 3 or 4 oysters in each, ac
cording to the size of the patty; cover
with paste and bake in a quick oven 2U
minutes ; when done wash over the top
with beaten egg and set in oven for 2
minutes to glaze. Open patties are more
troublesome to make, but also very
delicious ; the paste must be cut into
round cakes, less than half an inch
thick ; rings cut I he size of the cakes
and placed around the edge, so as to
leave a cavity for the oysters. After
filling, add a small, round cover the size
of the cavity or a trifle smaller. The
oysters are boiled in half milk and half
liquor (just enough to cover them) ;
then stir in 1 tablespoonful of butter, 1
tablespoonful of corn-starch wet with a
little milk, litt.e salt, boil until it thick
ens, then fill the paste shells ; bake a
nice brown in a quick oven ; glaze with
Genesis of the "Colorado Giant."
The history of the creation of "the
Colorado Giant" is published. In the
beginning, a man named Hull, at Elk-
land, Tioga County, Pa., in February,
18. i, molded a figure out or ainerent
kinds of dust, principally bone, and
baked it in a lime-kiln. It is stated that
he spent $10,000 or 12,000, and ex
hausted his money. Then Barnuni saw
that it was good, and came forward and
breathed the breath of life into the en
terprise, the giant being immediately
shipped to Colorado, and its age set
back several millions of years by plenary
indulgence. The facts in the case of
the Cardiff pleasantry did not come to
light so quickly, probably because there
was greater curiosity on the part of the
people to know them.

Safe and Surs.
Mr. H. R Stkvtvs :
In 1H72 your VEOETTNH was recommenced to me,
fend, yielding to the persuasions of a friend, 1 consented
In try it. At the time I was suffering from general de
bility and nervous prostration, suporlnduced by over
work atid irregular habits. Its wonderful strengthening
and curative pmiierties seemed to alfeet my debilitated
system frota tlie first duos ; and under Its persistent use
I rapidly recovered, gaining mora than usual healtn and
goisl feeling. Since then I have not hesitated to give
aittElINU my moot unqualified Indorsement, as being
a safe, sure and powerful agent In promoting health 2nd
restoring the wasted system to new life and energy.
V EU h i I Mi is the only medicine I use ; and as long as I
live 1 nevor expect to nnd a better.

Mb. H. B. Sttvins :
Dear Sir About ten years ago my health failed
through the depleting effects of dyspepsia ; nearly a
year later I was attacked try typhok rjer In Its wont
form. It settled In my back, and tuk tne form of a
airge, deep-seated abscess, which was fifteen months In
gathering. I had two surgical operations by the best
skill In the State, but received no permanent cure. 1
suffered great pain at times, and was constantly weak
ened by a pentose rttschargo. I also lost small pieces of
bone al different tinaes. l. ...
Mattm ran on thus about seven years, till May. lAii,
when a friend recomroended me to go to your other, and

and for nine montiis i have enioyed Ihe best of health.
I have in Uiat lime gained twenty-five pmuiils of flesh,
being heavier than ever before in uiy life, and I was
never more able to perform labor than now.
During the past lev weeks I had a m n uluas swelling
