PUBLISHED WEEKLY AT
ST. FIANC ISVILLE, LOUISIANA. Says the Boston Globe: "The fact that there are 189,955.37 miles of rail. road track in the United States, is only tantalizing to the average man who cannot get a pass." The conscience of Europe may yet be aroused, remarks the cynical Chi cago Record. There is always the fearful prospect that somebody by seeking to interfere with the Turkish atrocities may precipitate an unfair division of the Sultan's territory. Research has revealed to the Bath (Me.) Enterprise that the first phy sician to practice in that town and its vicinity was a woman. It was about 1750, and her field extended over a large section of the country. There is no woman practicing medicine i, Bath to-day. An experiment is being made at the Elmira (N. Y.) Reformatory of the ef fect of diet as a moral agent. Under the wage earning system of the roe formatory the inmates must earn their living and keep a credit balance to their accounts in order to progress towards their release by parole. To maintain this credit balance a prisoner must restrain, regulate and exert him self in a way which shows his improve. ment. Hitherto the diet rate has been inflexible, but now an enlarged scale of dietary privileges is provided, in creasing from grade to grade, so that the prisoners can out of their own ac cumulations select meal by meal at their pleasure, provided always that they keep their expenditure within the limits of indulgence allowed by thbo government of the reformatory. It is believed that mauy of the prisoners will, fur an iuviting table menu, pay the neces.ary price of more attention to work and discipline, and thus pro gress along the lines of reformation. I There have been only two instances in our history, says the Atlanta Jour nal, in which Presidents of the United States were elected by the House of Representatives, and in both cases the contests in the House were protracted and exciting, and the results greatly aggravated the animcsity between the opposing political parties. The first instance was the election of Thomas Jefferson for his first term. According to the Constitution then in force, the Presidential Electors voted for two persons, and the person receiving the highest vote was to be President, and the next highest to be Vice-President. The candidates were Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr, Republicans, on one ticket, and John Adams and Thomas Pinckney, Federalists, on the other. It was well understood by the voters that Jefferson and Adams were the opposing candidates for the Presi dency, and Burr and Pinckney for the Vice-Presidency, and the expecta. tion was that to carry out this under standing the electors would cast at least one more vote for the Presiden. tial candidate of their party than for the Vice-Presidential candidate. The Federal electors did this, giving Ad ams sixty-five and Pinckney sixty four. But the Republican electors cast seventy-three votes for both Jef ferson and Burr, thus making a tie between, them and throwing the elec tion into the House. It is probable that this tie in the Republican elec toral vote was brought about by an intrigue of Burr, who hoped that by throwing the election into the House he might himself be chosen President, the Federalists preferiqg him to Jeff ferson. His subsequent career ex posed his intriguing, unscrupulous and desperate character. But the Re publican representatives in the House stood firm throughout the long strug gle, and eventually elected Jefferson, he receiving the votes of ten States, and Burr the votes of four. The ex citement attending this election re vealed a fault in the practical opera tion of the mode of electing the Presi dent and Vice-President, and was foi lowed by the constitutional amend ment providing that the electors should designate the person voted for for President, and theperson for Vice President-the plan now in force. The second instance of an election of a President by the House was that of John Quincy Adams, in 1825. There were four candidates for the. Presi denoy--Adams, Henry Clay, William H. Crawford, and Andrew Jack-son. There was no election by the people or electors, and after a stubborn and angry contest in the House, the friends of Adams and Clay united, electing the former. This result, too, caused great excitement throughout the coun-1 try, and many charges of bargain and corruption. I iantv fordan's Red Light, LY P. MANIFOLD CIAIG. OOR Lanty lior dan !" At the merest megtiou of the name everyone connected with the Grand South era I ailway C smiled. That is to say, everyone living within twenty miles of Hancas tie. To be sure, the smiles usually ended with sighs and shakes of the head; and one after another of those who had hazarded all they could conscien tiously risk in his interest, frowned as they said: "It is hopeless, poor fel lowl We can do no more for him." It had often been said that poor Lanty was nobody's enemy but his own; and there were narratives of hi.s having risked his life in Burmah, not only for comrales in imminent danger from the Dacoits, but for a poor shi kari, over whose prostrate body he had shot the fierce tigress which was slowly crunching the thin black limbs inch by inch. It used to be believed that during this adventure-of which the hero could never be induced to speak-Gunner iRiordan hal never let his coarse Trichinopoly cheroot go out, although he had walked so close ly up to the wounded tigress that her fulvous coat was singed by the powder from the shot when she fell over. It was further aserted that a formal charge of "making away with Gov crniment property, in that he did (date, place, etc.) expend, that is to say, tire off without proper aunthority, one round of breech-loaending carbine anmunition, the property," etc., was sent in against him by the Divisional Sergeant on the occasion. He was ad monished in the Battery Orderly Room; but privately shaken hands with by the Brigadier-General Commanding, I and secretly presented with $25, a sum I which was collected in ten minutes in the artillery mess. The expenditure of this sum nat nrally got Gunner Riordan and five beloved friend into the gu::rd room, with long spells of cnc;iue'uncin to barracl:s to follow. Poor Lanty could not be.r so much fame, accompanied by so much wealth. Now Hancastle, at the perioJ of this true history-the locality where Lanty Rliordan was sto well, although not favorably, known--wes the point iat which coal trucks were shunted, under somowhat incorn plete arrangements, into the de pot yard, then under construction. Here they stood, on from five to nine lines of ritiils, alongside nearly a quar ter of a mile of the permanent way. The switch used when the cars were thus to be shunted was at the foot of a semaphore, which was under the control of the signalman in the box half a mile further away. Trains con ing up to Washington passed first the signal box, then the semaphore, and lastly a dismounted old railroad car at the depot, which had been Lanty's dwelling during the past three years. It was impossible not to like Lanty. Selfish, wilful, slovenly, sulky, often absent from duty, lazy, disrespectful, and ungrateful at times--he perioJi cally turned over new leaves, attended to his religious and other dutie:s, was sorry for his faults, overflowing with a gratitude which was as genuine as his wmckedness, helpful, gentle, thoughtful, the cheer and life of all who knew him. His good looking head was an intelligent one; his heart was warm and kind ; but within five minutes of entering bad company his good im pulses and his pledges were forgotten In a very chaos of extravagance and dissipation. In settling down at Hancastle Lanty fell across his evil genius in the per son of a man named Potter. Shortly after Lanty's arrival it had been con veyed to him that it rested with him to say whether or not the person, and one hundred dollars in ready money, the property of a public school nurse in the neighborhood: should be at tached to him matrimonially. In the spreta3 injuria formie which his love of liberty caused, the addresses of a less desired but persistent suitor, Potter to wit, were hastily accepted; and much of the former liking for Lanty on the new Mrs. Potter's part turned into angry dislike, without the addi tion of a grain of happiness or good will to the sentiments of the bride groom regarding Riordan. To add to his trouble., Lanty at about this time was discharged from the service of the Grand Southern Rail way. It was a line upon which vast changes of way and plant had been taking place, and from which, chiefly owing to the patience and co-patriotic kindness of Mr. Roche, the local Super intendent of works, Lanty had had almost regular employment as a navvy on the new coal depot works, at fog signaling, at keeping up fires beside hydrants in hard frosts, and so on. But now all this was over. Whither should poor Lanty's staggering foot steps lead him except toward the half made coal depot near which was the dismounted old railroad car which he had been allowed to occupy during the past three years? Of course he ought to have recol Iceted that he had been firmly evicted that morning. He had also been in formed that he must expect to find his late residence appropriated to stores thence forward, and provided with a powertul bolt secured by a padlock of which he had not the key. But his faculties were not very clear; and he only had a vague despairing feeling that he should have neither food nor shelter to-morrow; that he would probably have to go to jail for assault; and that the rushing monsters which he loved made quick and merciful ends. It had been so--God rest their souls! --for those whose remains, on two oc casions, he had coolly and most decor ously dealt with, when others had shrunk and turned pale, and hurried away from the ghastly sighth. Lanty, in India, had shown great gifts as an extra hospital orderly dur ing cholera epidemics; as also when a party had suffered severe losses by fall. ing into an ambush in Loonungoung, Burmah. He had for a time been a medical officer's batman in Ireland; and had evinced such intelligent in terest when detailed to help at autop - sies; in the mortuary in Burmah, that the surgeons had taught him a good deal about the human bones and the general lie of blood vessels and organs of the body. There was, indeed, scarcely a sense in which Lauty .Riord:in could be said to fear death. Even drukienacss only gave unction to his h!!u iies upicn the wisdom of preparation ,or our inevit able dissolution. And Lnow, as soon as he had spent his last few coppers upon a flask of whisky of a speci:dtly curved and flat pattern, prepared for slip ping into the breast pockets of tray elers-"for use in the tunnels," as the leering barkeeper saidl--Lanty ceased his melodious singing of "The Young May Moon," and staggered sol emnly along droning the "Adeste Fidelis" in his rich and tuneful bar, tone. There had been many hours of sat urating ;rain that day, andi having met his evil genius, Potter, Lanty had male the wild and wet weather a p)le for sp6nding it in drinking, treating and wild card playing. 'Potter had. been discharged from the service of the Grand Southern Railroai: for dis honesty, and had never since ceased from efforts to make Launt commit himself. This unhappy day he had succeeded. With this wild orie Lnuty had ended all his money and :ail his luck; and now, as he struggied over the wire fence into the cutting, maudlinly singing the fine old Latin hymn, he smilingly pictured the ccw ardly, mean face of ths'miun who had compassed his ruin whoen he should hear of the "shocking accident" neat morning. "Begorra," muttered Lanty, "'tis a feather in his cap it will be, if he ou'y knew it, bad seran to him! To think of the likes of him, at whitc-iivorcd cur, dhrivin' Lauty Riordan, no less, to a bloo2y ind! Ay! and the spal peen will faint stiff it they tell phim to pick up the pieces, when they find me! "Well, I had my chance, an' chances on the top of it! Not alone from Misther Roche and Father Oipherts, but from Mrs. Rocho herself-tihe blessin' o' God on her ! Shure, didn't she warn me agin Potter. '`liordan,' she would say, 'when Potter sees you one day dhragged in the gutther, he will rejoice over your dowafall, an' rub his hands wid glee to see the mnas ther an' me made mock of because of you!' 'Twould be the thruth she spoke if I would live to see it! But the nine o'clock express will settle the business otherwise, wid my brave Tornado doing her fifty-five mile an hour at the head of it!" Here Lanty paused unsteadily for a moment before the semaphore which had just rattingly signaled "Go ahead?" with its green light to the approaching express. Now'the new coal depot, as has been indicated, was being made by the gradual tilling up of a snmall valley which ran for some distance irregular ly parallel to the line. The practice was to lay down temporary lines, upon which loaded cars were cautiously run to aid the settling process. Wihen the surface was sound and level, the line was of course relaid at the lIevl of the permanent way, which had formerly been upon an embanklment above the depression. The heavy rains of that day would search out wetk places, and be of great use in help ing the settlement of new and old ma terials. In his least sober moments, Lanty, from long practice, was able to stride safely amongst sleepers and rails. So, when sinking first to his ankles, and then, with a plunge, up to his knees, amongst unsupported sleepers on the main line, his intelligence of the fear ful condition of things half sobered him. A subsidence had taken place in the side of the bank next to the coal depot at a point beyond the con trol of the semaphore; and the next train, the famous nine o'clock ex press, would be wrecked if it reached the defective place. "Lord a' mercy on me for a drunken swab-what am Ito do now?" cried Lanty. "If I had a bit of a red hand kerchief to put over the green light - No! even that wouldn't make a red one. WaT ! I'll mate a white light wid my owld lanthern, anyway." Dashing off toward the dismounted car which had been his dwelling, he looked for the battered old stable lantern in which he used to place his candle, and which had that morning been thrown out of the hut. He found it amongst the sweepings and rubbish which, together with his very primitive furniture and himself, had had to give place to oil cans, iron bolts and stores of all sorts. "The blessed saints be praised!" cried Lanty, "ihere's ten minutes of candle in it yet: "an' the express will be here in less time." To so heavy a smoker as Lsuty Riordan, matches were a very neces sity of life. Under shelter of the hut the half sobered fellow stooped, and, at the third attempt of very shaky hands, succeeded In lighting the sputtering bit of candle which Mr. Roche's coachman had given him some days before. As he stooped, the flat whisky flask fell out of his breast pocket; the neck struck a stone; ar d before he could pick up the bottle nearly all the spirit had gnrgled out. Snatching the flask with a haste which caused the loss of most of the remaining contents, and slightly cut ting his hand on the broken neck, Lanty uttered a rueful exclamation, and made sure of the last teaspoonful by pouring it into his mouth. Then, as the hght of the kindling candle in creased, he saw the blood on, his band -and at the same instant he heard the rumble of the express in the deep stone cutting only six miles off. Springing to the erect position, Lanty passed through some ten sec onds of the most intense mental ex ertion he had ever known. Then came his design and his action. At a ain pool he half filled the broken flask with water. Feeling for the blood vessel which gave the pulse at his left wrist, he set his teeth and plunged the keen angular edge of the glass bottle neck (keener than the finest lance or razor) Into it. The lights of the e. press emerged from the cutting. The blood jetted from the wounded artery --none too freely for the anxious mar tyr who had the train to save. 1Much of the scarlet stream poured down the sides of the flask, even when, by the Ilight of the candle, Lanty did what he could to direct the stream into the bottle. But at last, with the roar of the train waxing louder and coming nearer, Lanty had made a rich ruby colored fluid in the flask. Cramming twisted paper into the broken neck, he carelully opened the l-antern, placed the bottle between the flame and the glass, heeded not at all the jetting ar Stery, and stepped on to the line d. front of the express. "Now, may God send that I get far enough to give them time to see the sigual an' puil up)!" moaned Lanty. "'Tis liquor that's a curse; an' me head is reelin' so, I can't hardly hold the lannthern steady I An' now, if the Mother o' God doesn't strengthen me irnees, I can't go far enough to do any good! They'll see the big green light; but who would notice this poor red glimmer-anyway in time? What! Glory be to God! they're whisthn' !" And so it was! Yonder, about a mile off, the keen eyed driver of the big wheeled engino Tornado had caught sight of poor, tottering Lanty's feeble red light. Ile n:ed no longer strain forward upon those trembling limbs. Straddling his legs apart so that he might at least stand the more firmly-raising his lamp high in his left hand, and pressing a round peb ble info the wound in the wrist with his right, there he stood! Never did seconds seemr so like :nignt.s. Lanty felt his limbs faisiný. A dew` which was not all rain trickled down hi,; fore head. Indeed, the cool rain, which might have refreahe,1 him, had abrupt ly ceased. "Father in heaven! give mi strength to h!ld up till I stop th' ex press! R"esavn my cowl if it ends me! An' hear my vow; if it stops short and spare iself anu' meself, the dhrain of dhrink I tuuk five minutes ago will be the last forever, by the Sacraments of God. Amen! Ah, merciful Lord! 'tis blind I'm getlin'! Let me put the lauthern safe down on the sleeper! There ! Ab, Giory be to God, the sig nalman has seen it, an' changed the signal! Th' express is.stoppin'! I am-dy-" The great hissing engine Tornado pulled up within sixty yards of Lanty L ioardan's red light. The stoker and the guard ran forward, and found the poor fellow unconscious from loss of blood beside it. The scarlet spray from the jetting artery had closely spotted his face and dress. Two of the passengers were eminent surgeons. The artery was instantly compressed and quickly tied. Others soon found the landslip and explained what had happened. Bat when fiasks were produced, and it was attempted to give the brave fellow some stimulant, hlie feebly turned his pale, clammy face away, pushed the liquor aside, and said: "Wather, if ye plase! Wid my !last dyin' words I put my blackest curse on the dhrl:k; an' die I will, plase Go:, a'ore I throw His mercy back in lHis fice with the breakin' o.my word. Wather !" "You are not going to die~, my brave fellow !" said the surgeon, as he wiped his own hands afier the peration. "You have saved all our lives at the double risk of your own; and, as one of the directors, I shall tell the story of how you did it." It was many days before Lanty Riorlan was even pronounnce out of danger, and man-y weeks before he was able to get actively about, or essay any kind of work, so heavy had been the loss of blood which he had suf fered. The circumstances were hushed up as much as might be, lest passen gers should shrink from traveling by by a line upon which such dangers were possible. Within an hour of the occurrence a large gang had been put to work upon the weak spot; and no subsidence can ever posssibly take place there now. But the director who had traveled upon the line that evening was, as stated, an eminent surgeon, and has interesting museum containing mis siles, weapons, and the gruesome curi osities of a great hospital surgical practice, Prominent amongst these is the broken necked, breast pocket whisky flask, still stained with blood, with which Lanty liordan had made his red light. \ And Lanty would still do an heroic action for one he honored and loved. It was the pesky small things and do ings of life which needed his care, and which proved too much for his reso lutions. When his lifo had nearly ebbed away, he could turn his pale, cold face aside from the surgeon's brandy flask and ask for water, re membering his oath.--Frank Leslie's Popular Weekly. Trees Crowned by Mistletoe. A few miles out of the town of Rouen, France, there is an avenue of trees, chiefly old apple and oak. This avenue is about two miles long, and in winter every tree wears a crown of mistletoe, and clusters of parasite fill almost every joPnt.
