VERMONT WATCHMAN & STATE JOUKNAL, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1891.
Rosie's t'ase Before the 'Siiulre. 'Squire Harlow wus fast aeleep in his offlce, his head resting on his desk. Ile was excusable for sleeping. Ile was well adtanccd in life,the day was a hot odp, and he had tired his brain in an tffort lo unlangle the accotmts of the township ussi ssor. " Helloa, 'Squire! " eotte one said. " Hellt a,youi8cll 1 " cried the 'tquire, flingin up his head, mbbing hia ec, and adjuBting his glatses. His visitor was a sturdy, brown-faced girl of fourleen, vtitb lluffy black hair. bright eyes, and a resolute mouth. She was very stlfcontained in hir manntr; aDd, while iherc was no rcsenttnent in ber comi OBilion, it wt.9 ivident ihat she was one who would s'and np for her rinhts. " What do you wani?" asked the 'Squire. ' Law," was. the crisp reply, where upon the 'fquire struggled to reprtss a smile. " I want my pony," the girl added. " Your pony! " repeated the 'tquire. "I haven't got your pony. Why do jou come to mt?" " You're. the 'tquire, are you noi?" the girl aked. " My pony was stolen lat-tfal. The gvpsies have her in their camp at Ccvc Creek. I saw her there this morning." 'Squire B.irlow suddeuly bccame ln terested in ihe face, voice and poeitive ways of his yi ung visitor. " What is your uanie?" he asked. " Rosie Watson, sir," ihe said. " Ol1, you are the blacksmith's datigh ter," observed the 'squire. " Yes, I rimember you now. Wtll, why didn't your father eomt?" " It is my pony," tlic girl said. " And my my case." "Yes,'' admittcd the 'tquire. He laughed softly to himEclf, spread out his official docket, and mi.de a few en tries. " You saw your pony this m rn ins;?" he asked. " Yes, sir. At C'ove Creek, by the covered bridge, just outside ihe gypsy camp. She was grazing on the bauks of the stream," slated Itosie. " Ponies may !ook very much alike," tuggesUd the 'squire. "Ah, but I'd kuow Dollie among a thousiu.d .oniisl" deeland Hosie, her brown face aglow. " Sbe's a dark bay, with black points, a star on her fore head, white fetlocks, and a faintdath of white on her breast." The 'squire was busy writiug. He t-topped and read aloud to her the com plaint and the description. "Can you add anyihing?" asked Rosie. " Why, of course, little dear," replied ihe 'squire, in his fatherly way. "Then add," suggetted l sie, " ihat Ihe pony is ten handB high." That was promptly interlined; and then the Vquire gravcly asked, " ltotie, can you sweartbat you know the pony to be yours, and that you believe the .'ypsies have her?" " Yee, Bir, I can,'' Rosie said deter minedly, and without a momenl'B hes itation. " Take this book," the 'squire said. " It is the Holy Bible. Suppose you swore to what is not true?" " I would be a pirjurer," was Hosie's aniwer. " And what would be the conse ouenct?" " My soul would be lost, unless God forgave me the dreadful sin." " Yts, child," the 'squire said, with moistened eyes. " You tecm to know what you are about." He administered the oath, and then eaid, "Kiss the book." She looked at hlm with a wandering glance, and then pressud her lipa to the book in an awed, reverential manner. "What will it cosl?" she asked, in her matttr-of-fact way. " Don't bother your head about the costB," the 'snuire Baid. " Wait a bit," he added, sei ing that she was about to go. Ile hurriedly filled up a blank summons, folded it," handed it to her, and luid, " I suppose you know whtre Constable Finn lives?" " Oh, yes," replied Rosie. "Take that to hitn at once," the 'squire said. " It is a warrant for the head g p-y's arrest. The hearing will be held here at two o'clock tbis after noon. As you are the complainant, you must be present at that hour." The timc and circumstances of the hearing wcre noised about the village; and, when two o'clock came, the 'squire's ( fllce was crowdid. Thegypsy sat upon a rough bench, with an un iighted clay pipe in his mouth. He was lirty, unshaven, sullen-lookiug. He did not wcaravest, and his corduroy breeches were faetened at his waist by a greasy leathem belt, behind which the haft of a kuife was visible. " The plaintiff here, this little girl, claims that you have a pony wLich be longs to her," 'Squire Barlow Baid, his eyes on the gypBy, who replied: "She hasn't any claim on it. It is mine." " Where did you get the pony?" asked the 'squire. " I bought her in Micl.igan," said the man. " When?" " Three years ago." It was such a bold lie that Rosie's face liamed with indignation. "She gives a very minute descrip tion of the pony," reminded the squire. " Tlu re are plenty of dark bay ponies, ten hands hitrb, and slashed with white," was the man'a dogged reply. " Anybody OOUld look at her across a fence, and then describe her," he added, with a grin. " The girl must bring bttter proof before I'll surrendor tlic pony." Rosie looktd out of the rear window of the 'Bquire's ollice, and saw a small Easlurc lot close by. Her face f'airly eamed with an idea that had occurred to her. "'Squire Harlow," she asked, her strong voice fllliug the room, "towhose satisfaction must I prove that the pony is minc to that man's satisfaction, or to yours?" " To the Batisfaction of the court," decided the 'squire, with a broad smile. " All right,'' Rosie exclaimed, with a quick, pleased gtsture. " Mako out anotbcr warrant." " For whom?" askid the 'squire. " For Dollie," replied Rosie. "Oh, you want the pony arrested, ch?" asked the 'squire, whereupon evenbody laughed. " I waut her liroughl here anu turncn into this patture lot," Ro-ie excitodlv said, poit.ting out the window. "I'll prove tht she is my pony against all con e.s and goeis." The ' squire caught a glimpse of her purpose. "ConsUble Finn, bring the pony here," he ordered. Rosie bcckoned the coustable to her, and whispcred to him: " Mr. Finn, stop at the house and get my riding whip. We are going to have a circus." In balf an hour Conttable Finn ap peared with the pony, and the court adjourncd to the pasture lot. "I'uit Dollie, how she has been abusedl" Rosie said, with a vibraiing voice, her tearB very near. " Mr. Finn, hand me mywhip, and then turn the p ny loose." The pony scampcrid acroBB the lot, and then returned. Rosie stood etill, the whip in her hand, all eyes restiiig uptn Ler. " Here, Dollie ! " she cried. " Come here, Dollie 1 " The pony fiung up 1 er head looked at Rosie, whinnied her deliglit, and then walked up to htt and poked her in the ribs wiih hir nose. " Doyou love me, Dollie?" she asked. The pony nodded her head. " How much do you !ove mt?" Rosie askid. The pony made no rcponse. " How much doyou love mt?" Roiie sharply repeated, with a peculiar niove mi Qt of her whip. The pony kissed her by touching her cheek with ber nose. Rosie was so ovt rcome that she flut g her arms aroui.d the pony's neck and laughed and ciiel hysterically. Mort tban one sturdy man drew his sleeve across his tyes-. The gypsy stared at the experimtnts, his 8arlhy face giow- IDg still darker. " Kneel, Doiliel " ordered Rosie, as she swajed her whip. Down went the pony on her kneis. " Sit upl " cried Rosie. In a moment more the pony was on her haunches. " Shake hands, my lad ! " The pony tbrubt out one foot. " Niw pray !" " In response lo that the iutelligent animal fo!dcd her front legs, rested her head upon ihem, and looked comically demure. " Get u;'! ' was the next order. When the pony wt s on all fours again, Rosie struck her lightly on one foot. "Why, you poor child, you! ' she commiseratingly said, "you ate dread ful lamtl" The pony limped around, bobbed her head, and looked so di jected that every Lody laughed except the gypsy. Cou stable Finn grinued at him, and said sarcasticall", " You must 'a' spent a power o' time larnin' the pouy all that ar." The gypsy muttered something UDdtr his btcatb,a baleful gleam in his eyes. " Go away!" l?08ie angrily critd to the pony, with a tlirt of the whip. The fony ran to the rear of the pas ture lot, and then came back at a fear ful rate of speed, her mane streaming, Ler jaws apart, her tetth gleaming. "Look out, girl!" stveral oi the spectalors cried, in alarm. Rosie feltno dismay. She stood still, her arms foldul, her whip in her hand. The pony did not run h r down, but stopped directly in front of htr, and whinni( d and thrust out her h( ad to be caressed. " Mr. Finn," Rosie said, " please cuver the pony's eyis, so that she can't 8i e." The con-table did so, while Hosie wulkcd to the fence and dropped her haudkerchief. Then she came back and stroked the pony's nose. "Dollie," she said, in a tone of dei p concern, and she passed the whip thrrc times in front of her, " I have lost my bandkerchief." The pony snufftd about her dress. "It Isn't in my pocke'," R sie said. "I mut have dropped it soruewhere. Go look for it." The pouy went around the lot, found the haudkerchief, picked it up, and brought it to her youn mistress. " Is the court satislied?" asked Hosie, a quizzical look on her face. " The court is satislied," 'Squire Har low said. " In fac t, the court is over whelmed. Rosie Watson, the pony be longs to you. Take her home; she is entiiely too smart." "But ain't I to be conipensated in any way?" asked the gypsy, with a lierce scowl. " You are getting off cheap'y enough as it is," was the 'squire's comment. " You ought to be glad that she did not charge you with stealing the pony." " Wel!, I'm going to give the pony good-bv, anyhow," the mau said. Ile stepped quickly up to the pony, graspc d the halter, and presstd closely lo her. But Rosie had her eyes ab ut her. She gave a loud scrcam, and dealt the pony a stinging b!ow on the nose. The animal sprang back.jind the aypsy fell tiat on his face. When he roBe to his fcet.be had an ugly knife in his hand. 1 " The coward was going to kill my pony," cried Rosie in terror. Stoutly built though the miscreaut was, ConBtable Finn seized him by the collar, and shook him until bia tceth chattered. The crowd surged dowu upon the gypsy, to do him further harm; but 'Sipaire Harlow interfered. " Look here, you scoundrtl," he said, in great rage, " if you are not out of the township in half an hour your wlo'c gane, bag and baggage, lock, st ck, and barrel you'll flnd yourstlf in the county prison. Now be sharp!" The gypsy sneaked sulleuly away, Constable Finn following closely at his heels. The bystanders congratulated Rosie, aud cheered her heai tily as she vaulted, unaided, upon the bare back of the pi ny and rode hotne with it. For wetks Rosie's case before tho ' squire was the topic of conversation. Frank 11. S(auer,in tlie Interior. Jlbrttsfments. CATARRH Ib h most loatlisoino, (iHiigerouff, and prevay lent malndy.

Only those may speak with fret dom and by authorily on the subject of the disgrace of our pension legislation, in whose name and for whose benelit pen sion laws have been enacted. I have earued the right to speak. I stotd in the ranks, a loyal voluntier, in 1801, aud heard (he htssing balls when the lirst guns were flrcd at the skirmish of B'ackburn's Ford, three days before the battle of Bull Run. I marched with my company at the last grand re vicw at Washington, in 1805. I lost r.ot a day from service between those dates, except when disablf d hy a wound received atthe battle of FuirOaks. No man ean say of me that I am not with those who demand pensions for loyal st rvice, because I did not serve or did not stiffer. I have written my recoid with my bloi tl. I am not with the mereenary horde who demand pensions for duty done, because my loyally is not, and never was, for sale. What would be a just bnsis for pensions? Iu forming the legislation of the countrv, the clamoring of the dishonorable should not be consideieil. When ihe pension roll is relitved of all those who are not in need, and all who nre willlng to eain a living if a litting opportunity is found for them, those that n inain will be only tlie very few who can, under the most favorable circumstances that can be ft und for them, earn only partly enough to sup; ort then selves in com- forl; those who cando noihing towards tlu ir own suppoi t ; and those who can earn noihing, and who periodically re quire the aid aud nttendance of other persons. To each of thefe classes abundance should he givcn. Xo bon orahle person will for an instant with hold from luch as they the full syropa ihy and support which are thf ir dtie. When the pension-roll has been so siftetl, some dregs may be Itft moral and physlcal wrecks who have reaohi tl ihe lowest depths of drgradation, and are unworthy of 0ODlideraiOD, except as paupers. I am of tlie opinii n that a close cauvass of all loyal voluuteers will result in tecuring the active tupport of at ItMt a hnndred thousand reai vet r ans for such a reform of the penBiou laws as will change the legal I i9is of the claim from " suppoi t by mauua! labor " to impairmet uf earniny cajxt city, and, further, provido ihat no claimant shall receive payments when not ln need or while earning a comfort able living by publicor private employ meut. More than this, I believe that, when the reasons for and the nature of the reform demanded are once propeily undei stood, large numbers of loyal vof unteers who are now receiving pension payments that they accept as an hon orable exprcssion of the nation's grati tude and appreciatiou (but who are not in need) will williugly tee their pen sion certillcates canceh d, rather than allow their houorable service to be used as a covor for peusioning the dishor. orable antl undeserving.
