Tjlbertj, Sept. S3, M , THIS PAPER IS ON FILE IN, CHICAGO Hi um YOfnc A CEACK LN THE ICE The Marvelous Escape of a Young Circuit Eider. OOXE will deny that there is a particularly ro mantic side to the life and la bore of the early circuit rider. As tha forerunner oX our modern civilization, the pioneer preach er went forth with a com mendable faith and fortitude to prepare tha way for the coming hosts who should oak the wilderness and the solitary place glad by their skillful and indus trious efforts. The pioneer clergyman was, therefore, the intrepid explorer of our frontier regions; and it would not be an exaggeration to aver that volumes could be written about his struggles, triumphs aud adventures la those primeval days which tested to the utmost the bravery and the re ligious faith of men. A lucky circumstance having thrown me into the company of one of those pioneer preachers, he took pains to re late to me the following bit of ex perience he had had when a dashing young circuit rider: "It was in the winter of '76-77," said the clergyman, "that there happened, in connection with my labors as a pio neer preacher, one of those memorable Incidents with which the life of a 'back woods' parson is crowded. 1 was then in control of what was known as the layette and Manistique circuit, lo cated on the north shore of Lake Mich igan and In the upper peninsula. This circuit was nearly forty miles in length; and, despite this tremendous distance, I managed to cover it every Sabbath, with tut few exceptions. Frequently the roads were made liter ally impassable for horses, owiug to a heavy snowfall, or a windstorm which hurled great trees across the way so as to obstruct travel, or to the rising floods in the spring of the year sweep ing away one Or more of the innumer able frail bridges which spanned the streams. This being the case it is not to be wondered at that I was often Kbliped to walk a portion of the dis tance at least, to some of my appoint ments. My circuit was one of the most difficult to work, because of these and other reasons. Besides, boing the only ordained clergyman in that re gioa those days, I was, of course, not infrequently called upon to take long and perilous journeys In order to visit the sick, bury the dead, administer the rite of baptism, or perform the mar riage ceremony. I would travel for miles without catching a glimpse of an abode or a human being; and the se verity of the winters in that locality tended to intensify the ferocity of the wolves, which were alarmingly nu merous in the dense and wild forests along those bleak shores. "One bitter cold morninc lust before the close of the year 'ft, I got my horse and cnttcr ready for a trip across what is known as Garden bay on the newly for.ncd ice, which appeared to be per lectly safe and sound. Some of the settlers had crossed with their teams only a few days before, and I deemed it safe enough to go that way, too. Be- sides, it was considerable of a short cut, saving me an unnecessary drive of at least fifteen miles. The distance across the ice was about twelve miles. "My horse was a noble and trusty animal, and very tractable withaL Having driven him through many dan gerous places and thoroughly tested bis staying qualities and evenness ef temper, I learned to put all confidence in him. I drove him briskly on the ice that morning, for I had no more time than I needed in which to reach my objective point. It was an important wedding which called me away, and the contracting parties were particular friends of mine. The bride s fa ther at whose residence the cer emony was to take place was i very prominent and wealthy lumber w MY HOBBE SUDDENLY STOPPED. dealer and owned extensive tracts of pin land, also two of the largest saw mills in that locality. e was a verit able lumber kinir. Hence it was to mv advantage to be on time If possible. "At I was driving along at a good pace, however, my horse suddenly (topped and nervously looked across to ward the shore which we were skirt ing. I then saw him tremble as if with sudden fear. Glancing in tbe di rection of the shore, I noticed what seemed to - be some dogs scampering about at the ecbre of the adjacent, for est; but I thought nothing of it, and presumed that a party of Indians were camped near -tha spot I urged my horse along over the glare Ice; but I perceived he was not disposed to travel wlta his former freedom and alacrity. In a few minutes I looked around and, to my great consternation, I observed a small pack of wolves dashing up be hind we. I now felt confident that they were wolves, and not dogs, wh ion I saw on the shore of the lake. My horse Was right He doubtless bad heard IBeir wild barking, though I lewd It oot until th7 m4e chate, The woods from which tha wolres had emerged were nainhabited by any human being, and I made np my mind that my best policy was to keep mov ing forward, inasmuch as I was more than half way across the ice. Once a the other side I would be safe, for the lumber king's house was right on the edge of the lake; and if there were no bad plaees in the ice, I felt reasonably certain that I could keep the ferocious beasts off nntil I struck the land. A ready revolver which I invariably carried with mo on such journeys proved 'serviceable for a time; but a grave difficulty soon confronted me. I noticed just ahead of my horse a crack in tbe ice the dread of all drivers IB those parts. I detected it by the mani fest unevenness caused by an upheaval of snow and ice all along the opening, and also by the dark, watery appear ance of the ice. let I felt I could pro ceed. "My horse slackened his speed as he drew near the opening, which was about nine inches in width. As he did so the weight began to bear the ice down so low that the water was rapid ly gathering on the surface. I in stantly wheeled the horse around. drove him back a short distance. turned again, and, bringing my whip into requisition, drove up once more to the opening, but the horse was ter ribly frightened and refused to jump across. I turned him around again to get awsy from the weak ice. By this time the wolves had grown so bold as to strike terror through my heart My horse fairly sweat great drops during tbe awful crisis, but I was within only about three miles of my destination and was determined to force my horse across the opening as the only feasible method of escape. The lumber dealer's bouse lay on the other side of a point of land which ran out into the lake, consequently my perilous situation was not observed by auyone. 'On coming up once more to the for bidding crack in the ice my horse again began to falter, yet I spoke to him so sharply that he became des perate and leaped across the opening; but no sooner did he strike the ice on I APPLIED THB WHIP. the farther side than we all broke through with a resounding crash which echoed and reechoed along the dismal, far-reaching shore in the most weird cadences imaginable. Picture to yourself the 'Situation. There was the horse, almost completely covered with water, the cutter floating behind him, and I standing up in it fearing every moment that the wolves would spring upon me or the horse. "By the merest casualty, however, the piece of ice which had broken loose under the horse's feet when he jumped happened to be of good size. The re sult was that when I applied the whip, my horse, with one tremendous effort, raised his front feet above water and planted them firmly in the solid ice, at which juncture the broken cake of Ice served an excellent purpose of helping to buoy up the horse's hind parts to such an extent that he was enabled to completely cxtricule himself cutter. driver and all landing safely on the solid ice beyond the opening, and that too, without anything breaking either about the harness or cutter. It waa all done In a moment or two so quick ly in fact that the occurrence seemed more like a dream to me than a stern reality. To this day it is a profound mystery to me how a borso could re cover himself as mine did then after having broken through into water of frightful depth. Yet the circumstance is as true as it is marvelous, "On-we sped afterwards, as if noth ing serious had transpired, the wolves following hard after us; but in a few minutes the bluff was reached, and then the lumber kings house was plainly in sight and within but a trifling distance. "I had emptied the last chamber of my revolver; but while the shots fired had the desirable effect of beating the wolves back for the time being, do not think I succeeded in seriously wounding any one of them.' As we ncared the shore the hungry beasts began to fall back one by one, of their own accord, until all bad disappeared, for they became apprehensive and did not at all relish the signs of civilization which were becoming more and mora visible to them. "To put it mildly I can assure you met With a cordial reception at tha lumber dealer's home, and was warmly congratulated on my "remarkable escape. 1 was neither more nor less than a hero in the estimation of the lumber king, whose jolly round face actually beamed as I related my tale of adventure. My horse, too, was an ob ject of enthusiastic admiration, and oo entering the stable he was thor oughly rubbed down and warmly blanketed by willing bands, and strange to say 1 never noticed that he was a bit tha worse for his cold bath. "The wedding eeremony over, I re turned by another way, reaching my boarding place in safety. '- "A few days afterwards I was mora tban surprised on reoelving from tbe wealthy lumber dealer a check for five hundred dollars in addition to the ac ceptable sum which had been handed to me bv the bridegroom on tne event ful day of the wedding. Of course this stroke of good fortune was duly appreciated by a foutig olreuit rider, who. as mav be imairined, iwaa not overburdened With this world' good. Thomas J.

This observation pertains principally to these distinguished legis lative bodies before and after their daily sessions. For an hour or mora every morning a number of the representatives are in their seats in the house endeavoring to arrite letters to their constituents, but the senators seldom enter tbe chamber where dignity sits enthroned save at tha Boon hour, when the gavel of tbe vice president announces that "tbe senate will be in order. After adjournment a great many members remain in their places In the house, and a few of the senators continue in their seats. Upon these occasions the doors are opened and the public has the privilege of tha Boor. The men and women from vari ous sections of the country, who huve neither the nerve nor the capacity to support themselves without the aid of others, approach the senators and rep resentatives with pleas for aid In secur ing official positions of some kind. Many a statesman who has the moral courage to face an enemy upon the hustings or even upon the field of bat tle, many a senator whoso dignity is unapproachable during the sessions of the body of which he is a member, will fly from door to door seeking passages through lobbies and down back stair cases in order to escape from tbe capl- to by wa, of the cryp or through the bathrooms In the cellar, rather than . meet half a dozen or more weeping ! women who are guarding the doors and , chance to beg for an office cither in the capitol or in some one of the executive departments. 1 There is a rotund gentleman from a northwestern state whose head is bald and whose florid face Is elosely shaven, except about the upper lip, which is adoiucd by a bristling and carefully curled mustache, who is an exception to the general rulo. It is well known that ho Is devoted to "Wcln, Weib und Gesang" and that the visits of ladles, particularly if they are young and beautiful, are as wel come to him as the flowers tiint bloom In the spring. They have but to intro duce themselves when he cheerfully gives them a seat besido himself, shakes hands with them, and retains their right hand within both of his own, fondling them and looking very lover like Into their eyes, while ho listens to each tale of woe. If the applicant for congressional aid is in her teens, ho strokes her head in a father-like man ner and promises the earth and the fullness thereof; but it is a well-known fact that his promises are made to be broken. When tho ladies' reception room was located whore the committee on ways and means now is, this learned judge and eloquent statesman spent the greater portion of his time in that room interviewing the ladies. Since tho re ception room lias been closed and a lit tle section of statuary hall has been set aside for tho accommodation of visiting citizens of the gentler sex, he seldom permits himself to receive them In that public place. It is gener ally believed that his moral character Is not above reproach, and the women who are seen conversing with him, if young and innocent, usually receive the commiseration and pity of beholders. . The house is called to order every lay promptly at noon by the speaker. At a ! quarter to twelve one of the messengers steps to the clerk's desk in front of the speaker's chair, hammers upon it, and says: "I am directed by the doorkeeper 1 to announce that all those who ore not , entitled to the privilege of tho floor must now retire. The rules of the house require the same." This stereo-! typed expression is usually received by mm m THE SINFUL SIREN. the clapping of hands of the pages and tbe old-timers of the third house. , Tho people generally do not retire from the floor upon this announcement but those who are not accustomed to being upon tbe floor usually beat a precipitate retreat All others emaiq until five minntes of twelve o'clock, when the various messengers go to each indi vidual and escort them to ' one of tbe doors leading into the corridor. Strangers In the gallery who have been studying a diagram of the house and learning the names of all of tha mem bers, who have been locating the vari ous statesmen, are greatly disappointed, when the floor of the house is cleared, to find themselves looking upon! empty chairs and to realize that the statesmen whom they have been admiring are not statesmen at ail, but lobbyists Or office seekers who hare been lounging about In the chairs of the representatives tot the people. Probably when ail cowana mi teterkjDjrt are nwUed, B?t more tnaa a score of real boos Bda members are left in the house. When tha speak er strikes his gavel and announces: "The house will be in order" the few members present rise la their places and remain standing while the chaplain delivers his invocation. Immediately after prayer there la a rush of people into tbe corridors of both the house and senate with cards to send by the messengers to tbe members upon the floor. The doors of the house are besieged and the passage in front of tha main door is almost completely blocked by American citizens, each with as ax ta ariud and with a card in bis band tc "wkix, iveib vxd etsAna." be sent to the representative whom he expects to turn the grindstone. In the senate it is different There is a standing order In that body that no card shall be taken to the senators earlier than two o'clock in the day, This rule U a rigid one and is strictly adhered to, so that the senators are able to attend to public business for at least .two hours without any Interruption fenm nqlt.ni nn mntto. hnw hltrt, ntlit ft Tho messenpers jr, do not dare c carda to the gators during ... .

Under tho circum stances it is absolutely necessary for them to remain in touch with the peo ple, and no one of them can afford to have any citizen, however humble, turned away from the doors by an iron-clod rule which prohibits the pub lie from seeing a representative of any congressional district In this country. While this is theoretically and constitu tionally correct it is exceedingly hard on tho members of the house who reside in the vicinity of Washington. It doe not cost very much to travel from any part of Maryland, Virginia, West Vir ginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, or even New York, to the national capital. Constituents of the honorable gentlemen from these states who believe that they are entitled t official patronage do not hesitate to come to Washington, ask audiences and demand the offices of their patrons. Those statesmen who oomo from tlis states in the Mississippi valley, or over beyond the great father of waters, are less troubled by the personal appeals of their constituents, and therefore they havo more time to devote to mutters legislative and departmental Those, however, who can afford to come to Washington throng the corridors and block the doors, especially the main door of the bouse, so that tbe door keepers are sometimes obliged to call upon the capitol police to clear a pas-sago-way between the main door and Statuary halL Reputable and experienced newspa per correspondents are permitted to pass into tho vestibules of the principal doors of the house and sit in the niches I on either side, while they await the con venience of the members of congress to whom their cards have been sent The representatives usually respond with promptness and alacrity to the calls of the correspondents, greet them with hearty handshakes, ' sit down beside ' them and talk In a confidential manner about the affairs of the day which are of especial Interest to the renders of their home papers. It is here that the greater por tion of the news of local interest to the newspapers is gleaned by the busy gatherers of items of interest to thcU special constituencies. When a representative comes to one of the doors in response to a card from one of his constituents, he finds him self facing a crowd, where he Is seized and hauled In a number of different directions by various people who are anxious to Bee him, before he is able to find the particular individual in re sponse to whose card he baa left his seat to come to the corridor. In the deep recesses of some of the windows in the corridors it is not an unu sual occurrence to see a new member of congress conversing with a piquant and aggressive young woman, londly dresed, Although the numerous pass ers-by notice them not nor see aught in their conduct whereof to grumble or comment the experienced newspaper men recognize the presence of a soiled dove, a sinful siren, who is luring from the path oi rectitude a representative of the people, the husband of a trust ing wife, a father of devoted children But this is a cold and cruel world; and In the national capital of the republic everyone soon learns to attend to his own business, and never a word of warning is uttered, nor a comment made, when a soul is sinking in this manner; when the wings of genius are being clipped, and when the aspiration! of ambition are being deadened, dwarfed into insensibility, Infamy and possible disgrace, , , Smitb p.

Perhaps it Is evea worse thaa Urn to dilate to a child on the faults of lriendt and acquaintances; to point out the spite or meanness of people the child tl disposed to like; to arouse the desire for revenge, which awakens in every young soul at the thought of wrong ot injustice.

Instinct will; usually guide aright any woman of gentle breeding. Most wom en may be trusted, for example, never to nse their husband t Christian name in speaking of -him to any one, except a near relative or very dear Jnend ot both. But sometimes, womcrt who should know better address their hus- ' hands ia company -or before servants by their riven names. . .
