J Wayne county bas a character who casts Victor Hugo's Jean Valjean in to the shade ; for, while one reformed in good earnest, the Wayne county man fluctuates between deeds of chivalry and acts of baseness. His name is George Avery, and at present he is living in one of the Western States, In 1870, when Avery was only twenty-one years old, he was chareed with the murder of John Haynes, of Rolands, Pike county He was arrested and an officer de tailed to bring him to Milford. Evi dence of the murder was said to be so conclusive that he could not pos sibly escape hanging. On their way to Milford, where the county prison was located, the officer imbibed freely 01 liquor and became helplessly drunk. Avery secured the keys which unlocked the hand cufts and shacklea by which he was bound, and removed the manacles, placing them in the bottom of the wasjon. He took the reins from the stupidly drunken officer's hands, and drove to the nearest hotel, where he arrived with the officer in charge :it a late hour. He put the drunken man to bed. roused him the next morning, got him in the wasjon, arove on to Milford. when, after he had put the officer in bed at the hotel, he walked up to. the jail and delivered him self up to the keeper, telling him about his experience with the consta ble. He was confined till September this was in June when he wa3 tried for murder, and, in spite of over whelming proof, was acquitted, to the surprise of everybody - the court most of all. The day after he was discharged from custody he was ar- rested.charged with buglary, convict ed, and sent to state prison for a year and a half. He served the full term, reading law during his confinement. When he left the Eastern penitentia rv at Philadelphia, he returned home. opened a law office, arrested several citizens who had testified against him when he was on trial for huglarv, charging them with perjury. Failing to make out his case, he was senten ced to nay the cost. He had no money, so he went to jail aain, where he remained until his friends could scrape up enough money to get him out. When, finally, he became a free man again, tie returned to ins oia home at Rowlands. From that time forward buglanes were numerous about there, b .t never could evidence sufficient be obtained to convict Avery. A year or so later he went to Uil Ulty, xa., where he hung out his sign as a lawyer. Clients were plentiful and fees large. Avery was reapinr? a golden harvest, when he was Convicted of forgery and sent to Li itt . a : me vv f stern pembeuhiary iuc iuut years and eleven months, w nue there ,e fell in love with one of the keeper's daughters, and she ottered to assist him to escape, but he refused to leave until his time was out. At the end of the term he went back to Rowlands soon afterward professed religion, be gan preaching a little, swindled a neighbor out of $ 100, and was induc ed by the neighbor, who enforced ar gument with a big shotgun, to refund the money. Avery then left for Luzerne county where he got into difficulty and was sent to the eastern penitentiary for a short term. Upon his release be stole enough money to take him to the min ing regions of the west, where, under an assumed name, he opened a law office and speculated in stocks. In 1882 he "struck it rich," cleared $750,000. gave up stocks at once, in vested his money in government in Chicago, where they were married Avery is only thirty-four years old He never touched liquor, neyer gam bled, nor used tobacco, and claims to have been the "victim of circumstan ces." He writes to friends near here that he is leading an honest, upright me, and mat wnen ne comes easu ix will be as a United States Senator f from one of the Western States.

I '- I Men fear old acre without being ONE KIKD OF A BOY. THE TRUE STUFF FEOM WHICH GENU INE AMERICANS ARE MADE. Bill Nye in the Detroit Free Press. I am always sorry to see a youth get irritated and pack up his clothes, in the beat of debate and leave the home nest. His future is a little doubtful, and it is hard to prognosti cate whether he will fracture lime stone for the streets of a great city or become President of the United States, but there is a beautiful and luminous life ahead of him in com parison with that of the boy who ob stinately refuses to leave the home nest. The boy who cannot summon the moral courage some day to uncoil the tendrils of his heart from the cluster ing idols of the household to grapple with outrageous fortune, ought to be taken by the ear and led out into the great untried realm of sDace While the great world throbs on, he sighs and refuses to throb. While other young men put on seal-brown overalls and wrench the laurel wreath and other vegetables from cruel fate, the youth who dangles near the old nest and eats the hard-earned grocnr ies of his father, shivers on the brink of life's great current and sheds the scalding tear. He is the young-man-afraid -of-the sawbuck, the human being with the unlaundried spinal column. The only vital question that may be said to agi tate his pseuao brain is whether ne shall marry and bring his wife to the home nest, or marry and tear loose from his parents to live with his fath er-in-law. Finally he settles it, and compromises by. living alternately with each.

Youth's Companion. "Hail Columbia" was written in the summer of 1798. at a moment w hen the United States seemed about to be drawu into a war with France, their old ally and friend. The Amer ican envoys sent out by President Adams, with no other object than to restore a good understanding, were thought to have been grossly insulted by France. An army and navy were in preparation. Ueneral Washing ton had accepted the chief command, with Alexander Hamilton as his second, and nothing was thought of but impending war. A vocalist, by the name of Fox, was about to have a benefit in Phila delphia, and owing to the excitement that prevailed, the prospect of a good attendance was not encouraging his oenenc was announced tor a Monday evening, and it was only on a Saturday previous that he had an idea for "drawing a house." One of his school-fellows, Joseph Hopkinson, son of a distinguished father, had become himself a man of note in the intellectual circles of Philadelphia society. He was vice President of the American Philo sophical Society, founded by Dr, Franklin, and presided over by Thos. Jefferson. He was President of the Academy ot mne Arts, and was somewhat noted for his poetical effu sions. The vocalist, in his extremity. went to his old school-friend, and told him that he had little chance of a paring audience unless ne could announce something new and stri king in the way of a patriotic song, a piece that could be sung by the whole company to an easy or familiar tune, like the "President s March."
