His name was Willie Lee, Init no one llionglil of calling him Willie except his siiiler. Willie was poor and homely. His hair whs whal might be called a blue while, his eyes were pnlentul without expres sion, and ho vtns altogether a very plain person. He and his i-Mer Mary had a litilo house on the outskirts of the city near I he cht barns. Ilin close proximity (o Ihe barns dottbl less was Whittled him to think he would become a car conductor. At any rate ho did become one, and Mary, as she used to be weeding in her litlle garden beside the street, would look up and see him pasr and say to herself: i-Mniu ilrm't lift iunt look fine with those blue clothes and brass buttons?" iiiu .itAi.,ii rvmlil not see that the navy blue of tho clothes painfully brought out tlio McKiy pallor ol hid faco and made his sleepy eyes dimmer.

There was no use trying lOgellipa nutation Willi imnr, ne A neiehbor. rosv cheeked Rachel Moore, had loved Willie ever since they were child ren and played in tho dust of the road belore tno cny nau umycii down to them. Willie liked liachel, too, aficra fashion, very much as he loved ilary, but he never thought of marrj'iS her or anv one else. Mary used to say to him. "Willie, suppose 1 suouiu dio, what would you do fnr a housekeeper r Mary aiun 1 1 iudk of dying, she was thinking of the policeman, ana wiuie w un- Rpr. "Don't talk about such ab surd things, Mary."

Vof it v tlimuch a rrirl thali Willie a lite was cnangeu. uow these women do change our live, some in one way and some in an- r .itherl Willie was superstitious. He aid ho was unlucky every time he ran on car No. 113. A man had shot himself in it oi.ee, and anoth er had (alien off the Trout plallorm and broken his leg, and Willie was always having trouble when he was on it. One February day car 113 start ed from the barn at it usual hour wilh Willie Lee as conductor. Everything went on well all day and Willie was flattering hinifell lliat he was going to escape ill lucli lor once, but the lurks .irotiml us when we are least conscious of her presence. It was nearly ntght and a rain set in, a rain that froze to everything and made tho Irack very 6lippery. A young lady wh often went down on Willie's car asked to be lelt off at the avenue and Willie rang the bell. yito stepped off but as fate would have it another car was coming from tho opposite direc tion, the irack was slippery, a new driver was managing tlio brake, and luslpad ol slopping, as is the usual etiquette in such a case, the car came on. Willie, standing on the step took in the situation at a trlance, and though ho was always tdow ho made this the exception. Ilo jumped from tho car and nl-rao-t threw the girl from the Irack junl in time to save her, tut he slipped and fell and was ground under the hor.vea feet and cruel w heels. Then then the car slop ped and the passengers crowded out and around him. "Is ho dead? 01 is ho dead?" cried theuirl whom he had saved, and she knelt down beside him. took off his cap and brushed lite damp hair back from his forehead. "No. he is not dead," aia a po I iceman, Mary's policeman, who happened for once to be where he was needed. "lie lives just below here. We will carry him lo the house." They picked him up and carried him genlly into the little cottage. Mary was overcome with Iriirht and would u.tve lainled had not "Teddie" been there lo asture her that Willie was all right, -'only hurt a bit." Tho next day tho young lady whom Willie had snved came down in her carriage to see how he was. She swept in through Mary's little kitchen like a queen, and Rachel, who was sitting on the step of the back door, lookeil at her in amazement ; at the long sealskin clonic and the aiamonil in her ears. 'My. ain't shegrand?' she said lo herself. ' I wonder if Willie knew her before? I won der if he would have jumped right in front of two great big horses and a car it I had been in her place?'' Jealous little Rachel! Of course he would havo done it just the same had lite person been the lowest ol tne lowiy. Day after day Helen Carpenter came to inquire alter "llie brave fellow." a she called him, aud when he began to g':t liutlcr she brouuht In in flowers uud hot house fruit, and all sorts of things that he could noleat, and would nol have dared to had he wanted tue:n She brought him books, loo, and read to him by the hour stuff that ho did not hear. He did not car for books, but he liked to look at tier as she sat bv his side leaning. Ho liked to hear the tone ol her voice and smell the perfume of the violets she always wore, and alter aw hile her daily visit was w hat he lived for and looked forward lo. When it grew warmer he began to sit up by the window in an easy chair she had sent Ironi her own home, and she would come and sit on a slool'at his feet and talk wilh him about herself and her daily lifo until she made him her ahject slave and he loved her with a love that only such pcoplo have who have never loved before. She was the light of his life and he fortrol that he was poor and homely, athing that he had never forgot ten before, that she was as high above him as tho hcavcus are above the earth. When ho held her little icweled hand in his, as she sometimes allowed him to do, he would have been willing to have died for her a thousand times over. Rachel was entirely forgotten. She would come in sometimes to see him, but he would always be sleepy or watching for Helen and would not lalK lo ner. une uays Mrv rw r.er ?vea filled With tears, and she put her arms around her. "Don't cry, Rachel, he will see the light by and by," she said, and Rachel broke down and sob bed, "I used to think ho cared for me, but he don I now." One dav Marv said to him, "Wil lie, 1 dotiT. think you treat Rachel just right," but he never neata uer. Willie was a long time getting well. Another man had taken his car, but the superintendent aid he was at liberty to go back any time when he was able. The policeman too. was in a hurry lor Willie to rrnt well. Mary had promised him that the friendship begun last year over the onion beds should termi nate in a happy wedding, and he had been scanning intently the hotife hunters' directory lor a suit able place lo put his bride just as soon as she wouiu consent to ie enma hia. One day Willie made up his mind to tell Helen when she came again j.ist how much he loved her, and when she came in and at down al his feet and looked at him u itli her rrcat luiunl dark eyes lull of lender solii iludo, and asked turn how he was, he look her hand and attempted to peak but could not. ALL; FEAU FOB -NONE. SEPTEMBER 12, "You arc weak yet, aren't you, Mr. Lee?" How angry you ought to be wilh me for having been Hie cause ol all your trouble. But you'll hurry up and get well by Eanter, won't you?" And she childishly laid her cheek against Hie hand she held. "Do you know I am going to married on Easier Monday, and I waul you to come to my wedding." "Oo lo her wedding! Ootoher wedding !" lie said it over In him self, thou the room grew dark and everything seemed uncertain, and he fainted. "Ills warm and he is still so weak, and I suppose 1 talked him to death," she said lo Mary, who came in answer to her alarmed calling. Mayy was quick wilted and she knew prelly nearly what had hap pened, and she tild "Teddie" all about it that evening and said she loved Willie, of course, but she thought he had treated Rachel bad ly, and maybe this would be a les son to him. For several days Willie was too wead to sit up again in the easy chair, He seemed helpless and unconcerned as lo whether he got well or not. Helen had not been to see him since Ike night he faint ed. She was busy with her wed diug preparations and just slopped at the gate one day to ask if he was belter and wondered if Mary thought he could come to her wedding. "Wo 1 don't think he can go," Mary said nud she said it coldly, aud Helen did not come again. It was the day of Helen's wed ding. Willio hoard the carriages roll past on (he pavement and he turned his face lo the wall and the tears came into his eyes, that had been strangers to tears lor years, Rachel had brought, in a boquet of liiasler llowers and placed I hem on his table. There were violets among them: everylhing lore mind Imp of her, Just in the dusk of Iho weiiing Rachel herself came in. Sho piuii-ed a moment al the door to see if he was asleep, and as hit eyes were clood sho concluded that he was. She sat down on a low stool and as her faco was partially turned away from him Willie opened his eyes and looked at her slyly. He never thought Rachel pretty belore. In fact, ho had never thought much about her, but now as sho sat between him and the fading light he noled Hie round nes of lu-r cheek, her white throat, and the prelly brown curls around her face and neck. "I wonder if 6he would do just as Helen did had she been in her place," he said lo himself. "Would she have como here and made me love her aud then have cruelly told me she was going to be mar riedf Yes, I suppose she would; women are all alike, coquettes, every one of tiiem." Rachel was thinking over ner life, and by some strange, unex- phunahlu mesmeric sympathy Willie s mind went back over the oust Ion. What a friend she had always been to him and Mary, and how brayelv she had fought her own battle of life thus far. "She is a noble little woman," he said to himself, "and I wish I was worthy of her." The clock struck and Rachel started up. Sho drew a sighing breath, paused a moment,1 then stooped over him and lightly touched hts Iins with hers, lieiore ho was aware what he was doing he had passed his arm around her neck and pressed her head to his brenst. "Do you then love me, little Rachel? Thev sav love is eloquent by whomever spoken, and Willie was certainly eloquent. The love that was tshul up in cis heart all turned and told itself seemingly without his aid to Rachel, aud when Mary came in she found toem Billing hand in hand, a new light in their faces. When the June roses Mo6som there will be a double weddinzin the little cottage and "Tetldio" and Willie will both bo happy. Willie has gone back to his car. He says he likes the road and likes the work, and blesses the dav that good fortune came to him through misfortune.

The Friars Point Coahomian joins the great army of the press which is opposing the adoption of female sulfrago in this State. It eavs : With due respect to Mr. Fewell and his effort to solve the franchise question by extendindg to woman the privilege ol tlio ballot, we are compelled to raise our voice in op position to a measure which will throw woman into the arena of political strife, invade the sanctity ol the homo and destroy all that is tender and pure there. We do not onnose thisnrnnOKition throutih a spirit of selfishness, or an exalted opinon of man's superiority over woman. Relieving that she is his equal in inteligence, his superior in charactar and his inferior only in physical strength, we should pause and consider well belore makinga law which, when' put in practice will destroy tho yery foun dation of our social organizat ions and happiness. There are question on which husband and wife will surely differ, and could they, after struggling and wrangling with each other over jmlitical issues, present to their children that pict ure of love, happiness and unity which ia so necessary to the form ation of the character in t he young ? No! tho union of the heart will surely succumb to the introducion of politics into tho family. It is a rrrnvo auestion. Besides, we do not think this measure at all adequate to perpet uato intelligent white supremacy There are other methods to reme dy this impending evil without so much danger to our social insula Hons. On the other hand, wo bo k'ivo it would increase the diffi cultv and only add coals of fire to tho volcano now mouldering be neath the surface, for lo extend this privilege to women, even with a property qualification, would bring such a phalanx of ebony lined cyprains to the polls in the river counties as would swallow up in an overwhelming majority tho increase gained thereby in the hill counties ol the State. I'uttino on Airs. J udge Morris, delegate from the free Stale of Wayne, is a very attentive and faithful member, and believes in Hie Convention doing something that will be effective in regulating suffrage. After patiently listening at tho reading of plans aud engage ing in their discussion, the Judge relaxed when the (Jonveniion ad- jurned Friday eve, and proceeded at once to array hiinseii in "pur ple and fine linen" with his new hat. coat, vest, pants high-heeled alios, hand-painted cravat and at tractive boutonaire, the Judge looked the "gayest of the gay," and come of the jealous members said he had become a candidate agaiust Judge Ctrisman for posi tion of ladies man ol the Conven tion. It is unnecessary to say that Judge Morris is a Widower and a great ladies man. Any one could lell that at a glance, lie couldn't hide the fact il he wanted to, and he don't want to. Clarion-Ledger. Non-Partisan Historiks. The following from the Tupelo Ledger voices the sentiment of the press on Iho question of school histories. It is tho duty of those selected to adopt a series ol school books in the different counties of the State to see that a history is selected that will give n fair and impartial account of the late war. A history that by coloring of some of the facts and suppression of others, leaves the ?mpre(-8ion upon I he iniuas i the Soul hern -children that their parents were traitors, should find no place among the books ol our pnblic schools, and it ia due those who engaged in the late war in be half of the South, as well as to our selves, that a fair and impartial statement of the events of the great conflict shall be given lo the children now being educated. The Canton PicJte sizes the Con slitutional Convention lhu: "About one half ol the delegates in mo i;onsmunonai uonvonuon are intellectual giants, one-fourth of lair or average intellect, and the balance ahout as small as they make 'em.

In those days, says the Neie Lon don J)ay,ihe first exercise was read ing two verses from the testament by tho older pupils, who had back seats, while the small children were nearest the fire. After tho reading if tho teacher was a man of prayer, he offered one. This was done while the little ones were roasting before the fire. Then be gan the exercises in Webster's spelling book, the teacher in win ter pointing lo (lie letters with a penknife, aud in summer with tho point of his scissors, as they wero more or less in use. Thumps wero generally on tho head with a thimble on the teach er's finger, if a lemalo. Then came thesludyot a-b, nb. Then read ing was begun with the maxim: "Let no man put off the law of Ood." Then as tho reader pro greFsed came Iho stories iu Web ster's spelling book of tho unfor tunate and silly dairy maid who, with her mi.'k pail on her head. calculated how many eggs she would sell it lor ami what a line dress she would buy, until, tossing her head wilh these prideful re flections, down came the milk pail to the ground and with it all her sweet hopes. . Then there was the moral slorv about the boys stealing apples.
