Everybody at brunswick knew the old Eagle Tavern. Squire Copcute had kept it in the old times, and when he was gathered to his fathers, his daughter Ann Jemima succeeded to the keys of the cellar. The railway trains now whistled at the rear, where, once upon a time, the melodious stage-horn had sound ed, and still the Eagle Tavern main tained its repute for the juiciest steaks and the most toothsome apple-tarts in the country. Mr. Mapton was sitting on the porch enjoying the prospect of a dusty cross-road and two half-dead willow-trees, when Benaiah Phillips drove up to the step. "Guess you're the gentleman I want to see," said he, after a curious stare at the stranger. Mr. Mapton rose promptly up. "You're from Brunswick Center ?v said he. "Exactly!" said Benaiah. "Yes' said Mapton. "Just be good enough to wait a few minutes until I get my traps together." Benaiah stared. "Goin' to fetch them along?" said he. "Wouldn't it save time?" said Mr Mapton. "Well, I don't know," said Benai ah. "Guess you understand these things better than 1 do. I'll thank you to be a little lively though, for the down train is due in ten min xites, and my horse don't take kind ly to the cars." So well did Mr. Mapton lay this hint to heart, that scarcely five min utes had expired before he was seat ed in the box-wagon on a commodi ous cushion of buffalo-skins, with a square black box behind him -and Benaiah Phillips at his side. Mr. Mapton, a short, stout man, with a sandy moustache and pale blue eyes, looked at the landscape. Benaiah Phillips looked at Mr. Map ton. "A fine country this, said Mr. Clapton. "Desp 'rit lonely though," said Be naiah. u0ur gals all have to go outside of Brunswick for their bus hands!" "Indeed?" said Mr. Mapton. "Fact!" nodded Benaiah. "You are Mr. Hosea Phillips' son, I suppose?" said Mr. Mapton, after another long silence. "Ya-as," said Benaiah, selecting a particular straw out of the bottom of the wagon to chew. "AndJeru sha's his darter." "Yes?" , . , uAs true's you live!" emphasized Benaiah. "He is the chairman of the Board of School Trustees, I am given to understand?" interrogated Mr. Map ion. "He just is," said Benaiah, "There ain't no better family than the Phil lipses here, I tell you." "Glad to hear it, I am sure, ' said Mr. Mapton, clinging desperately to the rail of the seat, as the wheels went bounce, bounce over the stony Toad. He thought they would never reach the cozy farmhouse of Mr. Hosea Phillips, a deep red building, ! with white window casings, and a jrow of Lombardy poplars in front of it. "Here we be!" said Benaiah. Mr. Mapton climbed laboriously out of the wagon. Benaiah cleared the space with one flying leap. "I've fetched him, Jerusha!" said he, as the door opened and a round- ......... ...v.:. ..s ico. " Y."lV.V.y.Y.'.'.'.'.'.'.'.

JerusJiaV "I'm all of a flutter! How do'youdo sir?" . "Ma'am, I hope I see youVweTH" said Mr. Mapton, with a cerembni our bow. ' " "He's a perfect Sir Charles Gran dison!" giggled Jerusha," under her breath, adding aloud: "Please to walk in, sir." r - And she led the way into the cool dark parlor, where there wereVgreen paper shades at the indowsa..stone jar nit of asparagus in the fireplace and a plaster boy, with a bow and arrow, on the mantel. "Is your father at home?" asked Mr. Mapten, with another obei sance. "Oh, deai no!" said Jerusha, red dening ii again. "Are you going to speak to him first?" "It might perhaps be more seem ly," said Mr. Mapton. "Oh, good gracious!" fluttered Miss Jerusha; "but I haven't told him about about " "Pray do not mention it!" said Mr. Mapton. "I shall have no diffi culty in explaining my business to him myself." "Must I call him now?" said Je rusha, lingering with pretty inde cision. "Well, perhaps 'twould be better," answered Mr. Mapton. And softly closing the door. Miss Jerusha Phillips flew out to the barn, where her father was watering the oxen. "Pa!" she faltered, "do put on your other coat and come into the par lor." "Eh?" said Mr. Phillips, a great, red-faced, smiling giant, with a stub by, week-old beard, and knuckles like a blacksmith. "Minister hain't come to tea, has he?" "No; but, pa you see, pa " "What's the matter now?" said Mr. Phillips, as Jerusha twisted his coat button nervously around with downcast eyes. "I've been advertising in the pa per, pa," confessed Jerusha. "Advertising!" roared the farmer. "What for?" "For for a husband,1 -almost whispered Jerusha. "And the gen teelest gentleman ou ever saw has come to answer it. He signed his note M. M. Manfred Manleverer and the same initials are on the end of his valise, and he wants to see you at once." "Well, I declare!" said Mr. Phil lips, with a borean breath of ameze ment, "The fools ain't all dead yet;' "No. But, pa, please don't dis courage him' whispered Jerusha, "because he is very gentlemanly, and all the girls will envy me so. Now, pa, do be reasonable." "He's got to give an all-fired good account of himself," said the far mer, "before I'll let him have a dar ter of mine!" "Oh, he'll do that, pa," said Jeru sha. "And do make haste! Benaiah was in the secret. He posted my letters, and brought back Manlever er's from the post-office. And he went to the village for. me to-day; and I've made him half a dozen new cambric cravats, and mended his Sunday gloves to pay for it." Mr. 'Mapton, alone in the gloom of the best parlor, thought that the chairman of the board of trustees never would come; and in fact it was some time before Mr. Phillips bad as he expressed it "scrubbed himself clean and jumped into his best clothes." And then he made his appearance as majestic as Corio lanus. "I have the honor of addressing " said he, slowly. "Moses Mapton, at your service' said the stranger, rising and bowing. "Thought my gal said it was Mul liver," said Mr. Phillips. "So you want to see me, eh?" "Yes, sir," said Mr. Mapton. "I wish to obtain your good word for " "Oil, you must settle all that with Jerusha," said Mr. Phillips, ehuck- "Yes, sir, but in order to intro duce " "My gal says that's all settled a'ready' said the farmer, broadly grinning. "I s'pose you've got good references?" ' "The very best in the state said Mr. Mapton, eagerly. "I assure you that our system is" "Eh?" said Mr. Phillips. -"What the dickens are you talkin' about? ' "Will you allow me to show you a few samples," said Mr. Mapton, briskly unlocking the square black box, from which overflowed a fear ful Niagara of geographical maps. "Our ruputation in outlines and pri mary school maps is, I flatter mj self beyond all attack." "0-o-oh!" said, the farmer, "is that what you come to see me about?" "That is it, sir," said Mr. Mapton. "I am the only accredited agent of Atlas & Co., the great school-map publishers. To you, as chairman of the board of trustees " "Yes; but," interposed Mr. Phil- np witn round eyes or wonder, rl thought " . ' w'Pa: pa y -whispered the voice of the fair Jerusha, from the other side f the door, "just come here a min ute, please." And as the farmer J presented his moon-like face in the mil, she whirled him around and hut the door softly. "Pa, 4Pn't "say another word," she whispered, i'lt's all a mistake, don't you see? Benaiah's brought the wrong man. He's a map-agent, instead of a hero of romance. Oh, pa," bursting into tars:"Jfne,veraso. , disappointed in my life!" "And I never was so relieved," said honest Hosea, drawing a long breath. "Never let me catch you playing us such capers again, Jeru sha. No girl ever yet got a decent husband by advertising for him, and it ain't the sort of thing I like. So there now." And br way of answer, Jerusha only dissolved into fresh tears. Mr. Mapton stayed to supper, and sold one set of his maps to the Brunswick district school ere he went on his way rejoicing. But Miss Jerusha made a very plea-ant impression upon his mind, and the next time he came that way he stopped again. Mr. Manfred Manleverer, it was necessary to sa-, never put in an ap pearance of any sort. But when the apples in the or chard turned red, Mr. Mapton an nounced that he was going to give up the educational publication busi ness. "It's remunerative," said he, "but I don't like the idea of being on the road all the time. I am essentially a domestic man. I want a home. And I've bought Bell's farm, three miles south of this. And if Miss Jerusha here will become my wife and go there to take care of it " "Dear me how very sudden!" said Miss Jerusha. "I'm sure 1 nev er thought of such a thing." Bt she married the map agent after all, and was very happT, al though his name was not "Manlev erer' and he did net resemble tin; steel-plate engraving of k'Ivanhoe" in the "Literary Annual." -"But ""he's a good-provider," saitl Jerusha, "and he says I may have one silk. dress a year. It ain't every husband will do that, now, is it?" Helen Forrest Graces. Gen. Hancock receiving the Ilews of His Defeat. Captain Burritt, of the Sunday Herald, relates this story of the man ner in which General Hancock re ceived the news of his defeat four years ago: Which one of the candi dates for the presidency, we wonder, will take his defeat as quietly as did Gen. Hancock? His wife, who told the story to the writer, says that on the night of the election he went to bed at 7 o'clock, utterly worn out. When she begged him not to retire so early, as there would be some one who would want to see him that night he said emphatically: "I can not see anyone to night. I am so tired that I must go to bed at once." So he retired and slept so soundly that when his wife, who stayed up to hear the news, vent to bed she didn't disturb him, nor did he awake until five o'clock next morning, when Mrs. Hancock, having a cough ing spell, he roused enough to ask her if she had heard and news. She saiil she had: "It is a Waterloo for you." "All right," he answered, and turning over was soon sound asleep again. "We'd Listen to Him Now.

This result was prevented by the great acces sions to the Republican ranks of Irish and Irish-Americans voters and working men of all classes, who sus tained me because of my advocacy of a protective tariff. They believe and believe wisely, that free trade would reduce their wages." "You really think then," queried the reporter, "that you got a con siderable Irish vote in New York?" "Oh, I had thousands upon thou sands' replied Mr. Blaine, "and should have had more but for the intolerant and utterly improper re mark of Dr. Burchard, which was quoted everywhere to my prejudice, and in many places attributed to myself, though it was in the highest degree distasteful and offensive to me. But a lie, you know travels very fast, and there was not time before-the election to overtake and correct that one, and so I suffer ed for it." Your correspondent asked Mr. Blaine if he thought tlie Prohibi tionists were honest in their support of St. John. "T never during the campaign," 'replied Mr. Blaine, "reflected upon the motive of any man, and I shall not do so. I content myself with saying that I think the Prohibition ists were misled and that they did not correctly measure possible result of their course. I received from many of them the assurance that my can didacy made their actions difficult, because they really wanted to- vote f or rn e, but tjiev seeded iJeQr the' strange' delusion 'tKavV'tem perance cause could be promoted by supporting their own Presidential ticket, and by their course they in fluenced prejudicially national issues which were really at stake.

Great political bat tles, are often lost or won by an ap parently trivial incident or accident which no human foresight can guard against." Mr. Blaine seems to be in perfect health and, as far as any one could judge, in the best of spirits. He told me that his long tour of forty two days on the stump had not in the least degree fatigued him. Red Taps. America may justly be condemn ed for her off-hand rough-and-tumble way of doing things, and her reckless disregard for the refining amenities of her social life, but from the custom in high life of courting im getting married by proxy, and being compelled to get the consent of all the magnates in realm, civic and spiritual, we earnestly pray, "Good Lord deliver us." It is thus: A son of a Duke becomes engag ed to a lady of rank, asks his father's consent to marry her, is referred to the Marquis of Lome as head of the house, who in turn refers him to the Queen, his mother-in-law. The Queen refers him to her brother-in-law, the Duke of Coberg, but the Duke says Berlin is the place and Emperor William is the man to de cide it. To the Emperor he goes, who tells him that Prince Bismark alone is wise enough for such things. Applicant sends in his credentials, asks an interview, when the bluff old Prince says: "Why should the matter require any decision of mine? What have we to do with the Duke of Argvle or with his son ? If the young fellow wants to marry, let him do so. and be hanged to him' Greensboro C re sent.

Long's Hotel block the upper portion of which occupied as the . hotel, whije beneath it were the t welye ' best stores in the place was burned i on Wednesday, with 200 bales of cotton lying in front of it, involving a loss of 100,000, on which there is an insurance of $05,000. The guests of the hotel narrowly escaped death. The flames originated in a pile of shavings which had been saturated with - kerosene and placed ; beneath Jfcstairway in the interior of the Ifoilding almost undoubtedly the of the dangerous excitement exist ing among this race since the elec tion of Cleveland. In addition to the recent Palatka, Florida conflag ration there have been several other smaller fires which are directly traceable to a similar cause. A feeling of more or less uneasi ness has been engendered among the whites throughout the South in con secjuence. A very large proportion of the negroes cannot be disimbued of the idea that Cleveland's inaugu ration means the re-establishment of slavery. Some of the blacks have asked their employers to buy them and their families. When the feel ing first manifested itself the whites' paid no attention to it. Now that its seriousness is beginning to be sean, efforts are making in nearly every Southern town to counteract it. Several city councils have adopted and had published resolu tions explaining to the negroes that their civil rights are in no way en dangered and that their school facil ities will not be in the least curtail ed, which is another of their appre hensions. Acting upon the oppor tunity offered unprincipled white men are travelling through some of the unfrequented portions of the South receiving money from ignor ant blacks for papers drawn up in legal form, in which they profess to deed them perpetual liberty. While this state of affrirs will probably die out before bloodshed results the situation is far from pleasant. It has already cost over 81,000,000 in this part of the South, as exemplified in the Palatka and this conflagrations. 3 r ' Toisnot in Ashes. Toisxot, N. C, Nov. 19, 1S84. This place was burned this morving at 11:30 o'clock. Every business house in front of the railroad ware house en the Edgecombe side was burned to the ground. The fire originated back of W. M. &. J. T. Wells' store. The loss is variously estimated, including build ings and gpods, at $23,000 to $30, 000. There is no insurance what ever; none could be obtained. The fire was the work of an in cendiary. From Turnbull's corner, including his' store and goods, run ning north on Railroad street, the stores of Sharpe, W. B. Land, Jim Sellers and Barnes' drug store and Killebrew; on the cross street east the eating saloon, W. M. & J. T. Weils', Hoover & Co., and K. B.

"Boys," said he to his fellow-laborers, they are kicking up a regular hell-a-baloo up in Fayetteville. The solid South has gone for Cleveland. New York has, too. England is a little doubt ful. Connecticut and Indiana are Democratic. Germany and Virginia are doubtful, but Europe i-all solid, and Cleveland's going to be the next President, sure, pop!" Chronicle.
