A Curious and Interesting dlan Legend, Mori- One of the Mysteries with Which Katare at Times Delights to Astonish Her Dev o tees A Strange Flower Which Accentuates a Southern Tragedy. In the western part of Jefferson County there grows and blossoms into curious and magnificent beauty a rose that seems to be indigenous to n small area of country, but which will not flourish in other latitudes. .The bush is a strong and vigorous ono and the leaves are a very 1 ght but glossy green. The petals of the flower curve slightly inward and are the color of bright, arterial blood. The odor is pungent, but slightly siekoning. The peculiarity of this flower is that tho dew that drops therefrom is of a faint p" inkish cast, a marvel seen in no other flower, the baffling wonder of those who havo witnessed it. It is called the Grant rose and has a sad and mulau choly history. Its orisiu is one of thoso mysteries with which naturo at times delights to astonish her devotees. In 1831 John Grant and Kellio Low ry were married. Both were natives of an adjoining county, where the record of their baptism and marriage is still on tile among the rude archives that have been handed down from year to year. John was a young farmer, stout and strong, a splendid typo of Southern manhood, comparatively well educated, inured to hard work, sell-reliant and quick of resource. Kellio was well suited to be the mate of such a man. ibe was bright and pretty, the belle of the littlo settlement, full of buoyant health and spirits, strong of arm and , heart, fully skilled in household and farm duties and stainlesss and pure of mind and soul. At one of the pleasant social gatherings of the neighborhood they had met It was a case of mutual love at lirst sight, and coy as Miss Nol lie was, it did not take young Grant long to woo and win her. '1 hey were married on tho morning of tho oil of June, 1834. For miles around the neighbors flocked to tho weddiug of the popular youoz couple. Tbo wedding feast that followed would have been lit to set before a Ring. The forests contributed their choicest game and the river its most toothsome fish. Chickens were plentiful and there were loads of bread aud cake. An open bar rei of persimmon beer sparkled near tho doorway. In the afternoon, with all his earthly goods packed in a huge wagon drawn by four oxen, his young vt ito soaiod Dcsiue mm, glancing tear' fully back at the dear old home she was leaving forever, but smiling through her tears, John Grant took up tho line of march to tne place he bait selected as their future home. It was in Jefferson County, near the beautiful Ancilla River. Here he took up one hundred and sixty acres of lino virgin soil, built a rough but comfortable log house and settled down to the prosaic duties of life. His stnrdv oven soon broke up the ground, the seed was sown, and with a patient round of labor lie waited lor tho ricli results which were sure to follow. Meantime the dainty tnsle of his young wife had made a. cosy nest ol- the rude house, and tho little door-yard many homely, old . fashioned llowcrs bloomed anil blos somed." The nearest neighbor wai live miles and t' e nearest store was ten miles away, but the couplo did not lack for cither the necessaries or the luxuries of life. Their larder was at their very doors and near by the Ancilla, roaming 9 downward to the Gulf, brought cool ing breezes to theiu and delighted their eves with the glossy verdure that fringed its banks. Its beautiful waters were like a mirror and over sixty feet in dcpin the glistening sand was plain ly visible. . . In the spring of 18:15 a child was born unto them and a new blessing added to the happy household, makins life's dii ties a pleasure and its varied responsi bilities easier to be borne. Hut a cloud. not l.irgwr than a man s band, soon niado its appearance, heavy with sor row and disaster and fraught with dark ness that envcloiied and crushed the happy family in its gloom. The Seminole Indians, who had for some time been quiet and friendly and engaged in the peaceful pursuits of the chase, tne quiet oi camp-nres ana oi social intercourse, were secretly prepar ing for an outbreak, under the insult otis appeals of Osceola and some of the other young and fiery chiefs oi tne tribe. Their inflammatory appeals might. however, have failed of effect had they not resorted to a desperate expedient. In the month of September, iota, Charlcv Omotlila, a Seminole chieftain of great influence, who had been " steadfast and much respected friend of ; - the white people, giving his yoice and prestige to them on every occasion. while strolling through the woods with a voting daughter was waylaid and killed by some members of the Micasau kee tribe, who had hid in ambush for that purpose, nndcr the instigation of the cruel and treacherous Usceoia. ine latter chief had this done for the pur pose of Inciting the Indians to revenge. claiming that the murder was the work VI Willie uivu suiiuui Mf snuio ii lands. , A son of the murdered Omothla, ex cited by these incendiarr appeals and eager to avenge the death of Lis father. athcred a band of young bucks, alL ike himself, eager fur the war-path, i and started out upon a tareer of mur der and rapine. Their course was marked by terrible and repulsive out rages, lighted by tho glare of burning homes and enlivened by the torture of helpless children. Of all thc-o things John Grant and his pretty little wife were in blissful ignorance. September 20. 18;S5, was an unusual ly warm day, and young Grant having business at the country store, somo ton miles off, delayed his proposed visit un til tbo cool of tho evening. At six o'clock lie mounted his horse and started off. He expected to return about two a. m. He kissed his hand gaily to his- wife and the crowing baby as he rode away, in a low momenta he was swallowod up In the gathering darkness and never again was ho seen of man. Six miles from home his horse stopped with a quick snort and turned so violently as to almost unseat him. Sup posing it to bo excited by some shadow of bush or briar he urged it on. A clump of undorgrowm near tn river suddenly became alive. A sharp ringing sound, a i:unt pun oi pungent smoke scarcely visible against tho night, and his horse, shot through the heart, trembled and fell under him. Ueiore ho had timo to extricate himself Ihe rod devils, with a war-whoop of fiendish triumph, were upon- linn, roor John; Ono prayer for Nellie and the baby and then his bleeding scaip nung at me girdle of a painted savage, wbilo his gashed and still warm body was Hung into the river, whose white arms opencu to receive it. "One o'clock camo, and the litt'e woman in the log cabin put her work of sewing asido, kissed the sleeping infant ne.ar her and listened Intently for tho footsteps she would never hear again. The night had becomo very dark. The moon was hidden behind a bank of clouds dense and gloomy.and thero was a whisper of rain in the atmospnere. The long yellow hound sleeping near the door becamo restless and whined uneasily as he snuffed the air. Another hour passed and tho young wife, tilled with an nndciinablo dread, was about to go to tho door when there came a yell that almost frozo the bounding pulses and left her cheeks as white as tho ltn press of death. For a moment sho stood helpless and trembling; then, clasping her child to her bosom, she raised a loose plank in the floor, dropped through it to the ground, and, with nn agonized prayer to the Almighty, stolu out into the strange and compassionate gloom. Boliind her sho could see the iitiick glare of burning outbuildings aufl tho littlo homo that bad been a paradise to her. Too soon was her flight dlscov orcd and the red fiends were upon tho trail. About two miles from the ashes oi her mined home sho was overtaken. Two days afterwards a party of hunters came upon the dead bodies of mother and child. Hough and toil-worn hands geutly boro them to a quiet grave, the babe upon its mother's breast Near by a little pool of their iife blood had collected, which tho soil had not yet absorbed, dark and noisome in the bright fall sunshine, a blot upon the swift swaying of trees and tho joyous song of birds. In tho opening spring the body of the husband aud fathor was found entangled in the roots at tho bot torn of tho river and was buried with the ones ho loved so well. A few years later a passing hunter, ono of the original party that had found the bodies, happened on tho samo lo- cality, and in tho little hollow, whore the blood had gathered, saw a vigorous bush, hearing such roses, as I havo do- scribed. Ho cut some slips from it and took thorn to tho settlement, where ho related his discovery. Such a romantic and singular fl-ory exo'ted tho curiosity of many in tho adjacent counties, and repeated ollorts were made to secure the growth of the slips in other places but they have all failed ot success, vt ith n an area of five miles, where the doleful tragedy occurred, it is said the rose can still be found, wi h its strong and sturdy stock, its pitlo green leaves, its in-curved crimson petals aud its bloody dew.

We went out to a Mississippi swainj. accompanied by several negroes, ant as the Colonel had promised two bit to the first b'ack man who should sight an alligator thero was a feeling of rival ry among them. The day was awful hot, and though alligators were at plenty as frogs, we beat around for an hour without getting sight of ono, was their hour for sleep. As we finally gathered on a long spit of saud which projected out into tho bayou for two hundred feet, tho Colonel called up one ot me blacks and said: "Come, Moses if you'll swim for it I U make tho pri.o half a dollar. "Sure I won't bo cotched. massa?" "Oh, there's no danger. Here aro fivo rules to protect you." Tho negro went half way down, tho spit, and then had doep, dark water on each side of 'him. Ho closely scanned the surface in all directions, and then speedily disrobed and plunged in with a great spiasn. "Ho s baiting em!" whispered the toiouoi.

Bally Ann's Account of Ono Day's Tribulations. What Came or Jeremiah's Leaving the Gate Open Why the Mombers of Two Households Are Not on Sneaking Terms. 0;io morning in July I had to bake bread and churn, besides doing all the other housework, so I put the bread Into the stove oven, and took the churn and set It down under a big oak tree that stands In the back yard. I had Just commenced working the chorn when I saw Jeremiah pass through the gate Into the barnyard. "Jeremiah," says L "you havo left the gate open." "Never mind," says he, "I'm coming back In a minute." I didn't think any more about the gate then, but just as 1 was ready to take out the butter. 1 happened to look over Into the potato patch, and there was a bog rooting up the potatoes. I called "Jer e nil ah r as loud as I could scream, but all I heard In reply to this patriotic appeal was the word : "Jer o ml ah I" echoed back from Jie barn. My eyes wandered around over the land scape in search of my absent husband, and Anally beheld htm about a quarter of a mile away, seated on the top rail of a fence In the shade of a large Cottonwood, talking to Bill Jinkths, who was in the lane on the other sklo of the fence, burdening the back of an old horse that I always called Bona parte., not because he was an uncommonly ambitious animal, but because the greater part of him was composed of bones. ,. . I am well acquainted with both men, and I knew that there was little likelihood of Jeremiah returning to the house for the next two hours, so I reluctantly left the churn and went to the rescue of the pota toes. As I started I called the dog. Tige had followed Jeremiah, and knowing that he had plenty of time had gone to sleep in the shade of the cottonwood. but as soon as he heard me call him he started on the run. Jeremiah heard me at the same time, and slid down off the fence, and sauntered leisurely toward the house. A hog can always see If a gate Is left open when he wants to get into mischief, but never when you want to drive him out Five times that four-footed quadruped and myself revolved around that potato patch at a sieed that would have started the perspi ration on a living skeleton in January, but when .we passed the tcate the sixth nine, the brute struck up toward the house, and he and Hire met aud had a wrestling niatcn in the butter and buttermilk where I had left the chum. The milk-house door was standing wide open and I made a rush for It, but before I could reach It I saw the hog dart through It, followed by Tige. .1 heard a tremendous squealing and tear-around in the milk-house, aud pretty soon Tine came leading the hog cut by the ear. 1 looked within, and If I ever saw destruction I saw It there. For a moment I forgot everything but the sad spectacle before me, but Punk In self-consuming anguish I an the poor heart always ache? Ho, the tortured nerve will languish, Or the strings of iife must break." And fortunately I was aroused from my sorrowful meditations by the voice of Jeremiah exclaiming as be came around the corner ot the house: "What's all this row about, Sally Annr I replied to Jeremiah's qnestion by giv ing him a very forcible lecture concerning his carelessness, then I turned around and went Into the kitchen where I found my bread burnt as black as a coal. I had Just taken the bread out of the stove, when I heard some one' knock at the door. I wiped the perspiration from my face, and, obeying the summons, found myself face to tare with Mrs. (inmbrel. the worst gossip In the county. I felt like shutting the door in her face, for I was sure that she had heard the close, If not the whole, of my lecture to Jeremiah. I tried, bow ever, to act as if nothing unusual bad oc curred. " Good morning, MrsT Jones," said she. "Good morning, Mrs. Gumbrel," says L Wont you come Inf ' says L " Yes, I'll come in for a minute or two," says she. " Will you take off your bonnet?" says L " Yes," savs she, " Til take It off while I stay, for I can cool better with it off." She took off her bonnet, and I knew then she had something to communicate before she left, and I resigned myself to endure her company until she was ready to leave. I didn't have to wait long, for she was anx ious to unburden her mind. "Did yon hear about the picnic?" lays she. i "What Blcntc?" savs L "Why," says she, "Mrs. ferown is going to have the young folks over in their wood lot, next Thursday afternoon, to a picnic." "Well" says L 'It there's anything on earth that I hate and detest and abominate and despise It's a picnic; but, of course, the young folks won t feet mat way sdom it, so I most do soma cookinf for Jacob and wna, "O," says she, "your boys are not to be In vited." "How do you know thai?' says L "Why," says she, "I heard Airs. J Ink ins tell Mrs. Green, that she heard Mrs. Brown tell Mrs. Slkes that she wasn't going to In vite anybody but the most respectable fami lies, and she named several families that sho intended to leave out, and your family was one of them." I was pretty well stirred un. anyway, and I didn't stop to think wlirtt I was saying, so says I: "I'd like to know what has made the lirowns so mighty respectable all at woman. 'La, Mrs. Jones 1" says sho. "was Brown's father put In jail lor horse-steal- Ihk, and was Mrs. Brown's mother a wash erwoman? Welt I declare! I have never heard of that before, but I always did think they was a kind of a low set, fur all they put on such big airs." I took a thought then about what I was saying; so, says 1: "I didn't say whether they were or not I said that mine and Jeremiah's wasn't," She started soon afterwards, and struck a bee lino for Brown's. A Jew days afterward Jeremiah came home in a terrible state of anxiety. Ho said that Brown was threatening to prose- rate me for slander, because I had told Mrs. Gumbrel that he used to steal hogs for a living, while his wife took In washing. "that an comes of leaving gates open, Jeremiah," says I. "1 don't see what leaving gates open has to do with your lotting your tongue run about business that don't concern you," says he. "Well," says I, "I was so worried by the trouble that 1 wasn't responsible." jeremian put on his hat and went out to tho barn, and, for a wonder, shut the gate after him. I sent the following note to Brown through the post-ofllce: Mr. Bhown: I m not afraid of your prose cution. but remember that you are a candi date for BhorlfT, and if I bear nny more ol your gub i n ton an i snow about you." I never received any reply to that note, and I suppose Brown must have been guilty of somo meanness that he thought I knew about, for 1 heard nothing more ot a slan der suit The families of Brown and Jones, how ever, have not been on speaking terms since. J'olcdo Hindi. NEEDED A CHANGE. A Vrlof Equestrian Experience He Spent Ills Vacation In the Country. My doctor said I needed a change. He told me that I was"sltting around too much; that in my burning desire to impart my stores of wisdom to my fellow-beings I wat sticking too close to my desk, lie said I needed a vacation; that I ought to go to the country and rough it. I asked hliu If he didn't think I would find it rouzh enough down ot Coney Island, but he said the beer that wasteth at noon tide and the dance that slayeth at midnight were altogether too frequent down there. so l went right out into the wilds of New Jersey, where there are more wilds to be bad for the monoy than anywhere else 1 know of. And when 1 had been thore two days the farmer's son grasped the fnct that I wanted to rough it 1 told hlin 1 didn't care to go as far as running myself through a hornet's nest or a thrashing machine at lint; a little mild excitement would do to begin with. bo he suggested a bareback ride I told hi m that was just what I wanted. I didn't know what It was, but I was not going to give lu to a mere boy like him. So he went Into the barn and brought out a tali, narrow horse, and told me to get on. I didn't say anything, but 1 expected great deal. I got nn and he mounted In front of me to keep the horse going. You may think it strange, but I became prejudiced against bareback riding as soon as 1 got on that horse; he was so tall and so exceedingly narrow. Well, the farmer's boy started him, and then 1 -thought the earthquake had come. The way In which the summit of that horse endeavored to penetrate through my spinal column to my soul was something remark able. I told the boy there was no hurry. I did not know where we were going, but I said we would get there soon enough if we let the horse walk. But the boy was game sun Kept the animal on the lump. then 1 said: "My son, my bareback riding terminates right here!" And I rolled myself off the starboard side of that horsr and struck on my head In a wild blackberry bush. I went home with a nose full ol briars and an accumulation ot raw ex perience that would have been worth its weight in gold to me If I could have real ized on iLrMiadciphta newt.
