A Story of Love and Tragedy in the Mississippi Valley.
Written for the Globe. j
OMPOUR, on that
night of Felia's
meeting with Mr.
Eaton, sat in the
tavern of old Fron
denac very late,
It was midnight
when he unsteadily
v iouna ins way to
the bar and laid down his last penny
tor a satisfying drink.
He was feeling miserable and gloomy.
The mortgage on the farm had not
proved as profitable as he thought it
should. : Then he was beginning to
feel old, and the farm work was hard
for bones that always ached and a
throat continually dry.
"Well, well," he muttered as he reeled
out into the night, "things have got to
change. Felia must go to work— work's
what she needs— I'll go to the city."
Up the railroad track to the road that
went over the bluff was the shortest way
home for him, but a dangerous one for a
drunken man. Pompour took it stum
bling over the ties, ami once pitching
into a cattle-guard, from which with
many a curse and groan he finally got
Half the way was over and he began
to feel drowsy, lt would not hurt to
take a nap. The night was warm. He
threw himself down on the railroad bed
and in an instant was asleep.
The night freight that passes old
Frontenac an hour after midnight makes
no stops until Lake City is reached.
The grade is down, and the heavily
loaded cars go booming, swinging
through the hills and forest at thunder
bolt speed.
Pompour in his mental condition had
forgotten when he laid down that it was
near. He. did not hear the faraway
whistle, that the hills broke into a hun
dred echoes. He did not feel the trem
bling of the rails, nor hear the low
moaning that ran through Mother Earth
as if she labored.
He could not see a lightening of the
sky as the clouds caught the reflection
of the glare of furnace and smokestack
of the on-coming train. The whip-poor
wills called, the rails shook and jostled
him, the ground trembled, a blaze of
light shone down upon him, but he
Whistle and tight-set brakes, yells
from the startled trainmen, were of no
avail. C-r-r-unch, and the great drivers
were upon him.
He woke; he screamed in awful
agony. Something was crushing and
cutting and beating the life out of him.
His head was yet free from harm, but
the wheels and the beams and the sharp
rods caught his body up and thrust it
down. Twisted bone and flesh and
muscle into awful shapes. Ground him
into the dirt, sent his life blood spatter
ing out to stain the dew; finally tossed
him helpless, crushed beyond recogni
tion, into the ditch and went on.
It was of no use to pick him up; to try
to make a man out of the mass that was
carried so tenderly to the station. Those
who bent over the dirt and blood and
torn clothes heard an oath, the name
"Felia"' and the spirit of Pompour had
gone to its judgment.
Felia at the farm house sat long that
evening with Mr. Eaton answering his
questions as to her life. Beyond the
marvelous resemblance she bore to his
wife he could find no clue to her identity
as Ids daughter. She gave him such
positive proof as to hei parentage that
when he rose to go he was forced to
confess that while the mother had been
his wife yet the child was the daughter
of Farmer Pompour.
He said to her as he offered his hand
in parting:
"Your mother was my wife and de
serted me, as 1 know now, falsely be
lieving that 1 was untrue to her. When
she left me she took our child— a girl
three months old— and to this day 1 have
never seen either of them. Felix Gray,
a business agent of mine, stopping
at Frontenac, saw you. He knew the
story of my life, and from your resem
blance to the picture 1 carry believed
that he had found the right clue. 1
came here on his advice. Let me tell
you something else— don't start. Felix
loves you. He is coming back. I shall
stay here until he comes. You will
count me as your friend, won't you?
"I will help your father out of his
troubles, and when you know Felix and
he knows you, and everything goes as
we have planned, then, my dear, we'll
talk of something else. Your face has
too many dear memories in it for me to
ever forget you or your interests."
The. dogs in the farmyard began to
bay, first loudly and then in lower tones
as they recognized who was coming.
Felia threw open the door and
the farm-hands walked in, carrying
on a rude shutter, all that there was of
Pompour. Their lonely journey through
the forest with this ghastly burden, had
blanched their faces, and Felia, before
they spoke, divined their message.
She pushed them aside, and dropped
to her knees by the side of her father.
Rude hands had brushed the dirt from
his face. She looked on the open eyes,
that stared with hideous terror at the
ceiling; she saw the parted lips and
broken teeth; the blood that trickled
from the ghastly cuts.
Mr. Eaton caught her, and motioned
the men to take the body into an outer
room. Then he gave all his attention to
the prostrate girl. He won her back to
consciousness, and for her wild grief
gave words of comfort and cheer that
softened the blow. She sat with him
ail that night, and when the morning
came, it was decided that she was to be
his adopted daughter at least.
The next day Pompour was buried in
the village cemetery, and Felia, bidding
good bye to the old farm, went down to
Lakeside, preparatory to going East
with Mr. Eaton. Gen. Garrard, the
white-haired host and courtier of Lake
side, may have wondered— may not have
seen— but Felia blushed a rosy red when
Mr. Eaton led her up and introduced to
her, "Felix Gray."
Lake Pepin is essentially a refuge for
lovers. The very air breathes love.
The flowers, the hills, the lake, so soft
and entrancing under a summer sun,
arouse and quicken the tenderest emo
tions of the heart. Lips that never
spoke love before, there, frame the word
and breathe it with airy nothing into
pink-white ears; and little hearts that
beat in happy unison with the music of
the words.
, Felix Gray found the place in har
mony with his heart and mind. The
vision of the little country girl that had
first crossed his path, developed now
under Mr. Eaton's tutelage, into a
graceful but shy young lady. Felix
found her more difficult to woo than he
They rowed and fished together. They
let the boat drift with the current under
moon-lit skies, and talked of all the
beautiful things about them, but not of
what was nearest to their hearts.
The days passed, and it lacked but
one of their departure. Felix was to go
North on business, while Mr. Eaton and
Felia went East. It was the last night
that Felix could be with her for many a
Mr. Eaton was busy examining some
papers that he had found among Pom
pour's effects. Felix asked Felia to
walk down to the beach. She slipped
on a light shawl and they walked
slowly to the water's edge. When
they stood where they could see all of
Pepin's slumbering bosom, shining un
der a brilliant moon, they stopped.
Felix spoke first.
"And to-morrow it is good-bye?"
"But for only a short time, 1 hope."
A long silence broken only by " the lap
• the waves,
"Mr. Gray."
"I to-morrow." 1
"Is that all?"
"i love you." y; y>,
• In that awkward and abrupt fashion
Felix Gray spoke his heart. That Felia
answered well and true may well be
guessed. They- came back an hour
later, and Mr. Eaton, standing at the
door, laughed as he saw their faces and
"It is well."
When they saw him they separated,
but he called them in. They stood be
fore him embarrassed and loth to stay.
It was he who went over to Felia's side
and, taking her hand, said:
"My daughter."
She did not understand the full sig
nificance of his words until he went on:
"1 have found to-night that Pompour,
after all, kept for me through these
years my child. You will find in those
papers there," pointing to a bundle on
the table, "that you are my child. It
was Pompour who met my wife, not
knowing who she was, and brought her
here. It was Pompour, whom she bound
to silence, that kept the secret of your
parentage well. Thinking herself
shamed forever by me your mother,
Felia, took this course to punish me.
Pompour was the instrument, you and 1
the victims.
Much as they deceived you the papers
your mother entrusted to Pompour, and
which you never saw. reveal all.
I have found a daughter and Felix a
bride. We found you by Pepin's waters,
and here, God willing, in the years to
come, we'll return to celebrate this
This is one of the many secrets that
Lake Pepin keeps, betraying few who
trust her. Every summer at fair Lake
side rests Felia, Felix and Mr. Eaton.

That's What the Burlington Will Get
in Its Gnt on Rates.
Sequestration Suggested for the Short
Route Tranfer Company-Affairs
of the Railways.
Chicago, May 31.— The executive
committee of the Chicago Freight bureau
passed resolutions to-day commending
the action of the Chicago, Burlington &
Northern and the Chicago, Burlington
& Quincy roads in reducing rates to
Northwestern points, and thus doing
all in their power to remove the unjust
discrimination against Chicago that was
complained of by the associated ship
pers. This virtually means that the
shippers will support the Burlington in
the position it has taken, and will give
that road their business. The other
Northwestern lines are in a quandary.
Their effort to get the Burlington boy
cotted by Chicago shippers has acted as
a boomerang, and they now find them
selves between two fires. If they meet
the Burlington & Northern's rates, they
will have to readjust their lowa tariffs
on a lower scale. If they refuse to
meet them their attitude will
be construed as antagonistic to the Chi
cago jobbing trade. It is understood
that a meeting of the associated lines
will be called at once to consider the
matter. The Livestock Weighing as
sociation met to-day to consider the
question of estabisning rates per 100
pounds on live stock. After some dis
cussion the matter was referred to the
freight agents of the interested roads,
who were constituted a committee to
meet June 5 and prepare tariffs by the
100 pounds, minimum weights to be ap
plied according to the different lengths
■ of cars on a basis of the present tariffs
by the carload and the weights shown
by Stipt. Carman's weighing from Bee.
20, 1887, to date. Chairmen Midgely
and Faithorn and Supt. Carman were
also made members of the freight
agents' committee.
Reasons Given for It— Will the
Other Roads Meet. It?
The slashing of rates between Chicago
and St. Paul by the announcement just
made by the Burlington & Northern
proved a great surprise to railroad men
and they had not made up their minds
yesterday what it meant or what caused
the Burlington & Northern to jump in so
suddenly and make such a cut. These
rates will be on freight between Chicago,
Peoria, Quincy, Keokuk, Burlington
and common points and La Crosse, Wi
nona, St. Paul, Minnesota Transfer and
Minneapolis. This makes the rate to
St. Paul and Minneapolis 20
cents lower, first-class, than
the rate which the other lines
have agreed to put in effect June 4. It
is now expected that the Chicago ship
pers will turn their attention to the
other roads and claim that they are dis
criminating against Chicago by charg
ing a higher rate from Chicago to St.
Paul than is charged by the Lake Su
perior lines from New York to St. Paul-
The Burlington & Northern people take
the position, as then have from the first,
that the pro rate system should be
adopted on through business between
Eastern points and St. Paul via Chicago.
General Freight Agent Hamblin, of fhe
Burlington & Northern, argues that
there is much more
to St. Paul, than there ever has been, or
ever will be to the Mississippi river,
owing to the competion via Washburn
and Duluth. Mr. Hamblin, of the Bur
lington & Northern, in his letter to Mr.
Faithorn announcing the reduction,
gives the following reasons for the
At the meeting of the Northwestern
association (of which our line is not a
member, but at which we were invited
to be present) all the other lines urged
us to assent to the rates (the 60-cent
scale) which all said lines had adopted.
We assented to said rates against our
own interest for the sole purpose of as
sisting our competitors to regulate their
local rates in accordance with their
necessities, which they alleged to be
very pressing.
No sooner had our assent been given
to the 60-cent scale than many of our
competitors began to make an improper
use of the advance by alleging that the
advance was made by us for the definite
purpose of discriminating against Chi
cago trade, when, in fact, said rates
were made for the sole purpose of en
abling said competing lines to rearrange
ftheir local rates on, as they alleged, a
fairly consistent basis. Finding that
many of our patrons would be discrim
inated against by the 60-cent scale,
owing to the extremely low rates from
the seaboard prevailing via Lake Su
perior lines, we have decided on the
scale given above. Yours truly,
W. B. Hamblin, G. F. A.
The officers of the other Chicago roads
in St. Paul had not been informed yes
terday as to whether these new rates
would be met or not.
Adopted With Amendments.

When a Girl Made Her Entire
Wedding. Outfit With Her Own
Special to the Globe.
Chatfield, Minn., May 31.— Mrs.
Laura Bibbins nee Laura Hawley (for
that was her maiden name), was born at
Hoosack, Bensatun county, N. V., Aug.
3, 1807, and is now in her eighty-first
year. She was married at Madrid, N.
V.. Jan. 15, IS2G, to Eliphaz Bibbins, a
millwright by trade. Like many of the
girls of those times she made her entire
wedding outfit with her own fingers,
spinning the yarn and weaving the
cloth. They went to housekeeping in
a log house in the country, her husband
working at his trade in town, coming
home once a week. In 1833 they took
the Western fever and moved to Cleve
land, O. Two years later, Mr. Bibbins'
health failing, they moved into the
woods in Crawford county, clearing up
a small farm and enduring all the hard
ships of a pioneer's life. The second
year they were visited by a drouth
which stopped all the mills and lor
eight weeks they lived upon mush,
pumpkins and milk. The meal they
obtained by using a common grater
upon which they grated their corn.
Two years later they moved to Lock
land, 0., and in 1843 to Illinois, where
they remained until 1556 when they
came to Chatlield, Minn. They raised
a family of ten children, six of these
are still living. The oldest girl, Mrs.
Stewart Wilmot, of Dubuque, 10., now
in her sixty-second year. Mr. Bibbins
died at this place Feb. 27, 1875. Mrs.
Bibbins is still in good health and her
mind and memory is as good as ever.
Full of fun even in old age she is good
company and loved by all who know
her. She is now living with her son,
Melvin Bibbins, of this place.
A Cattle Magnate Gains Control
of a Big Canning Company.
Chicago, May 31.— A transaction in
teresting for its magnitute, but more
for its reversal of the usual order of
things, and the possibility that it indi
cates a change in the tendency of the
times, is announced to-day as com
pleted. The parties to the transaction
are the American Cattle trust on one
side, and Nelson Morris, the Chicago
live stock magnate, on the other. In
stead of a gobbling up process by the
trust, the exact opposite is the case.
Mr. Morris has bought back from the
cattle trust the Fairbanks Canning com
pany, and has satisfactorily dissolved
all relations with the trust. The con
sideration paid in the purchase was $2.
