Spoopcndyko smiled faintly and Mr. Spoopcndyko picked up his heiress. "It's tho inmco of you," sho said, regarding with somo trepidation Mr. Spoopcndyko's method of handling tho infant. "I don't sco how you mako that out," said Mr. Spoopcndyko gravoly. "I don't knorr whon my noso lookod llko tho thumb part of a boiled lobster claw. Do I understand you that my oyes boar any rosomblanco to tho head of a screw?" "I moan tho general foatures," mur mured Mrs. Spoopondyko.

Hil kitcheo! kitch-o-ol You'll haro to got that mouth roofed In beforo cold weather. Wlmt's tho matter with her anyway?" "Porhnp3 you hurt her.

"Lot hor como to mo, do, ploaso," moanod Mrs. Spoopondyko, and Mr. Spoopondhko was foreed to hand her over. "Well, that's quito a baby," said ho, nursing his kneo and eyeing ttio infant. "What'ro thoso bumps over its oyes for? Whnt prepondcranco of Intelligence do thoy ropresont? "You musn'c talk so," ronionstratcd Mrs. Spoopcndyko. "Sho's tho hand somest child you ever saw." "Well, sho's got to stop biting her nails boforo she goes any further with this procession. Hero, tako your hands out of your mouth, can't you? Why don't you put hor hands downP" "Why, all babies do that," explained Mrs. Spoopcndyko. "You can't stop that." "I'm going to try," said Mr. Spoop ondyko, "and I don't want to bo inter fered with in bringing this child up. Hero, put your hands in pour pockets! Don't let mo sco any more nail chewing or you and I'll get mixed up in an argu ment. Sho gots that from your family, Mrs. Spoopondyko."

What novolty is worth Iho sweet monotony whero everything Is known, and lovoi because His known? Qcorgt Eliot, Iowa Fanners aad the Barb Fence Wire Patent. WoncESTKti, Mass., Oct. 10, 1881. To the Editor of the Iron Agt: Under the namo of tho "Farmers' Protective Association," certain parties havo bee for somo months seeking to prejudico tho community against us and against tho patents upon barb fencing in which wo aro Interested, by mibllshing stato mcnta calculated to glvo a distorted view of the wholo subject. Tho lottor of C. C. Colo, in your issuo of tho 22nd ult., is of that character, and contains misstatements so glaring ns to demand specific denial: 1. Wo aro not to bo compared or classed with thoso owners of palont "drive wells," "gates," or other artioles by wiiom tuo larmtr nas ooon porsooui oil. for wo havo sued infringing manu facturers only, refusing in all cases to bring suit against tuo larmor or con sumor. 2. With roforonco to tho validity of our patents, it Is enough for our present purposo to say mat auer ono oi tno most oxhaustlvo legal investigations over bestowed upon n patent subject our patents liavo not only boon ueciueti to bo good and valid witli roforonco to' tho verv points referred to by Judgo Colo, nnd that by tho hlghost court known in tho administration of patent law noxt to the Su promo Court of tho Unitod States, but tho quostlon of tho validity of our reissued patents, af- tor navmg boon orougiitbcioromosamo court, by special petition and careful roviow a second time, a second timo wcro declared to bo proporly reissued, and to bo good and valid. 3. No fair-minded person would find tho suspicion of bad faith suggested in said lottor in tho faco of our having li censed tho principal parties whom wo Had sued lor infringement, u it bo borno in mind that thoso against whom wo had brought suits woro already" in tho business, and had, in most cases, their entire capital investod In that busi ness; that tho pressure for tho material was great, with an immediato doinnud for all that could bo produced. What otiior courso could wo liavo pursued, unless wo had boon willing to sacrifice tho good and convenience of tho public, or unless wo had somo spirit of vludic tlvencss in which to indulgo? It would seem also plain that any if collusive ar rangement had boon desired or contem plated, it would havo been consum mated beforo the decision of tho court rather than aftor. 1. It is claimed that wo and our li censees aro making too great a profit on barb fonclng. How much foundation exists fortius will appear in tho follow ing computation: Present prico of wire suitable for barb fencing in Chicago, 4 cents; freight to Central Iowa, cent; cost for manufac turing, 1 cent; royaltlos, cent; amount ing to 6 conts per pound. Tho regular ?nco to tho purchaser in 50-ton lots is I conts, which leaves ono cent a pound as tlio total prolit that tuo manulaoturer can mako, under any circumstances, whero barb fencing isordorcd as above. And out of this is to como tho ex penses of storage, of insuranco, of handling, tho porcentago of bad debts, and all tho other oxponscs and risks in cldent to tho handling of a bulky mate rial of primo necessity, which must be carried in stock in considerable quanti ties. It is truo that tho romilnr nrico for smaller lots is hlghor, but this discrimi nation in price between ami who buys hundreds of tons and tho party who buys but a slnglo spool or in small lots, is ono which is observed in tho salo of every class of goods, and tho dificrenco nnulo in this respect with referenco to barb fencing, is not as great ai that which obtains generally in other lines of goods. in wnaiover pnoo is ouuuncu oi any consumor orsmallbuyerovor and abovo 7;cents, is to ho found tho remunera tion of tho jobber and the retailer. Mark then tho unfalnr.'ss of our being hold up beforo tho community as re ceiving 10 and 11 conts for barb fenc ing, wuon our customors and tlio cus tomers of our llconsoos aro almost ex clusively tlio largo buyers abovo rotor red to. Thifl should effectually dispose of what Judgo Colo refers to as "tlio grievance of tho farniors," and loaves tlio one ccmpcr pounu as above, stand ing out in strong contrast to tho !) cents per pouud so conspicuously displayed by Judgo Colo. . Wo now como to a still more extraor dinary statement in this letter, that "Mr. Washburn statod to a committee of farmers in Dos Molnos, Iowa, a fow wcoks slnco tnat thero woro sold in Iowa during tho last year ovor 150,000 tons ot barbou wire." in mo urst placo, Mr. Washburn hereby utterly dis claims having mado any sueh state ment, and can prouueo ampio evi dence of tlio truthfulness of this dis claimer. Again, 150,000 tons is moro barbed wiro by 30,000 tons than has ovor been sold in tho wholo Unitod States, commencing with tho live tons estimated to havj boon sold in 1871, and ending witli tlio 50,000 tAns which is nn outside ostlmato of wont will bo sold in 1881. Tho total esti mated sales in all tlio Urlitod States during tho calendar year of 1880 wero I bo thoroughly accomplished beforo thoy 40,250 tons, and ono-twolfth of this.bo,rmti,onoxttnc30 Vf!rS0m aro sure tons.

Comparo for ono moment -1,000 tons and $00,000 with 150,000 tons and $2, 250.000 as testified to by Judgo Colp, and this aftor maturo deliberation, as sisted by thoso who, liko himself, aro striving to onllghton tlio farmers of tho Northwest wan roicrenco to tneir in in- i of i torcsts. Involving tho saored rights property and tlio long ostablishod prj el pies oi trauo. la this connoction comparo 1 cent per pound upon -1,000 tons of barb fenc ing, or $80,000, tho utmost that could havo been mado hist yoar in profits on Vivlt fminlnrv Jl.Tii'n with rim !l nnnta displays l' vour columns, and whiol has bcon copied profusely throughout tho Northwest, and thou say what bo comes of ids oharaotor as a reliable ad visor, ns a sagacious and consorvn ivvo loador of a gtoat pooplo. Yotihoh statomonts aro tho only grounds i Aon which t o unhesitatingly parades it the samo letter, against us, chargcJ of "grievanco," of "extortion" and cf "oulragol" 5 Judgo Colo's statemont that the farmers liavo boon paying in years past t o royalty of 76 cents wlien thoy have purchased (barbed) wiro at tho prico ot G and 7 cents is so extraordinary that wo glvo it entlro, Mark you. tho farmers have been paring to the years past the royalty when they fiavfi pur- cnoMd tno wire at me pneo or irom o to 7 ccnU.

The farmers of Iowa In years pat have, therefore, not complained at paylnjt Into the pockets of tho patentees the 12,250,000 per an num; but when, by their combination, they create a monopoly and demand the additional sum ot 19,000.000 a year from the farmers of Iowa, then It is that the farmers fay they must hare protection against such monopoly, extor tion and outrage. J his is it remarkablo assertion, in vlow of Judgo Colo's supposed familiar ity witli tho extent and character of tho litigation wo havo been conducting In years past for tho purposo of obliging manufacturers of barb fonclng to recognize tho validity ef our patents, and especially as ho must know that only two ot our present tliirty-nlno licensees, liavo paid us any royalty un til vithin tho past fow months. 0. With rcferonco to Judgo Colo's statement regarding cost of plain wiro nnd cost of manufacturing Into barb fenco wire, wo, with duo deliberation, put our statement abovo against his, and tno farmers mus: judgo which is likely to bo right. Tho Northwest liavo been largo cus tomers of ours ns long ns wiro of any kind has been required by them for fences or for any othor purposo. Wo think they will bollcvo our stntoments. and disbelieve that wo aro a party to any plan, in wholo or in detail, such as Is suggosted in Judgo Colo's lottor. 7. in vlow of tlio foregoing, wo aro entirely willing to submit our statements to mo farmers ot tno xsortuwest, in blank contradiction of every important statement mado by .J micro uoio in me loiter wo aro referring to. WAsniitiiiN Moen Mk. Co. A Marital Romance. Particulars havo reached Ualltmoro of an exceedingly Interesting and ro mantle caso in Wilmington, Delaware Thomas Patterson, brother of United Statos Attorney Patterson, who disnp peaied from Ualtimoro, nfter bidding Ills young and beautiful wlfu adieu, somo 15 years ago, and who has long supposed to liavo been dead, lias ap peared at Graid Hapids, Michigan. Mrs. Patterson is tho dauglitor of K. S. Hlco, Jr., a wealthy citizen of Wilming ton. Patterson's nbsenco aftor saying good-by to ids wife was unexplained until his rolativos road in a nowspaper tho description of an unknown marj who had been found dead in Eria, Penn. Tlio body was subsequently identified by a brother of Patterson us that of the missing man, tho letters "T. P." in India ink on his arm being to him conciusivo ovldenco. Tho body was interred in tho family lot in Wil mington, nnd tho tomb cared for and adorned with ilowcrs, which wero ten derly watered by tlio tears of tho sup posed widow. Tho diseovories just mado show that Patterson after falling into dissipated habits, went to Texas and was captured by tho Indians. He subsequently escaped and mado his way to Michigan, whero ho has amassed a comfortablo fortune A short timo ago. Mrs. Patterson, who still resides with her parents in Wilmington, was sup- prised to rccolvo an envolopo bearing tho postmark of Grand Hapids, and at onco recognized tho handwriting of hoi husband. The discovery nt first seemed llko a dream, but when the seal was broken and sho hurriedly glanced at tho slgnaturo hor fond hopes worojfully realized. It convoyed to her tho joyful intelligence that Thomas Patterson Is a prosperous merchant in n largo city in Michigan. Tho communication further stnted that tho wrltor had long ago dis carded all his bail habits, was leading ho exemplary life of nn honest, temper nto man, nnd that by strict attention to business ho had accumulated a fortune. It is understood that ho will return to Wilmington. Mrs. Pattorson is still a beautiful woman, and has had nmnv suitors for hor hand sincu tho supposed death of her husband, all of which sho declined. From tho Atlanta (Ga.)

Two of his Ex cellency's guards wero confederates, and a third, to whom tlio secret was confided, honestly disclosed tho infor mation. Several of those miscreants wero tried and convicted, and two or three wcro executed. A foot note of this account quotes as follows from ono of David Ramsay's histories: "Gov. Tryon had suborned tho then Mayor of New York to assist tlio royal forces on their arrival in that city, and (Jen. Washington was to bo assassinated. This detostablo design was rendered abortive by apprehending Thomas Hlckev, ono of (Jen.
