A Butterlut Victory.
By JOHN NELSON TRUMP.
(eopyright. 900, by John N. Trump.3
"Vallandigham is just the man
And Pugh's his right hand bower,"
sang Tommy Murphy as Abijah passed
the Murphy gates.
"Shet ep!" snapped Abijah.
"Ilain't a-goin to," said Tommy and
went on with the song:
"To meet the abolition clan
We're ready every hour."
Abijah would have been glad to have
stopped and shut Tommy up, but he
didn't dare. lie was on his way to pay
a call on Mielissa Bray and was too
dressed up to take any violent exercise.
Abijah Hopkins was the beau of
Goshen and ia ralik abolitionist. He
went to Cincinlati almost every month
and hence was an authority on fashion,
as his costume of that afternoon show
ed. lie wore a long tailed blue coat,
made with full skirts, fitting closely in
the back. Under the coat was a flow
ered velvet waistcoat, fastened with
bulletliko pearl buttons. Ills dove col
ored trousers were skin tight, with a
black stripe up the side seam and held
down by a strap passing under the
foot. His shirt was "store bought,"
and he wore a high paper collar and a
tie made of small colored beads woven
into a ribbon with itinite pains, the
work of Melissa, as was also the snaky
looking watch guard, manufactured
from her own hair. Abijah was proud
of the tie and the guard.
Personally he was not handsome. It
might be said that Ils hands were too
large and too red and too freckled and
hung, like Ichabod Crane's, "a mile be
low his coat sleeves." His face was
red, too, a shade brighter than his hair,
which was parted far to the left in front
and "roached" toward the right in a
high, sweeping billow. In the back it
was parted in the middle and brushed
away from the medial line to either
side, where it met the front hair in
little duck tails just behind his ears.
And his whole head was redolent with
Abijah was a "stay at home ranger."
lie hadn't enlisted and had escaped
the draft. Though he was the only
young man left in Goshen, he was not
in demand by the girls, as might be
supposed. Few people had any re
spect for "stay at home rangers," and
when Melissa began to go to singing
school and spelling bees with Abijah
people began to lose respect for her
too. But Melissa knew what she was
about. She was one of those girls who
can't exist without some one to flirt
Abijah passed the Murphy gate with
anger In his heart. Nothing made him
so mad as to hear the Butternut
song. He hated Vallandigham and all
his adherents, though Molly Murphy
was a nice girl. To tell the truth, he
was not sure which he liked best-Me
lissa, the abolitionist, or Molly, the
Butternut. le would have felt better
could he have thrashed Tommy, but he
knew better, both on account of his
new clothes and on account of Molly.
He wasn't going to give up his chances
with the only other girl who would go
out with him.
Melissa cxpccted him; he was expect
ed every Sunday afternoon, and she
was dressed in her best to receive him.
But it wouldn't do to let him know.
There was a peculiar code of etiquette
existent in Goshen; so when he came
up the front steps she pretended to be
"Why, Bljah," she said, "I'm jest
that glad to see youi Won't you set
He sat down and put his hat on the
floor. He was awkwardly bashful.
It would be useless to rep~roduce their
conversation. It was about the weath
er and crops and piolities. Abijah
avoided the subject of the war as he
had avoided the draft officers. As he
was about to leave Melissa said:
"Are you goin to the speakin to Mount
Repose next Tuesday?7"
"I 'lowed to go," said he. "Want to
"It it den t put you out none," she
"You'd jest as well go as not. I'm
goin to take my buggy."
"All right, Bljah," she said; "I'll be
He put on his hat and started down
"You'll have to fetch a lunch," said
he as he reached the gate. "Ma's sick,
"All right," she called after him;
"I'll fix it up."
Mount Repose was six miles from
Goshen, on the Columbus pike, and on
Tuesday Brough, the abolition candi
date for governor, was to speak. Evl
erybody was going, and Abijah felt
proud to think that he would have a
girl along even if he hadn't been to
the wan and got wounded. He walked
with his head up till he reached the
Murphy gate. He looked for Tommy,
but Tommy had disappeared. Molly
was leaning over the gate, and Abijal1
stopped to speak to her. She was con
siderate of his feelir.gs and had put
away her badge made of the cross see
tion of a butternut when she saw 1h1im
comning. All Butternuts wore badges
of that sort, and the abolitionists felt
It their duty to destroy all such em
blems of opposition.
"Evenin, Molly," said Abijah, as he
halted at tile gate.
"How are' you, Blijah?" said she.
"Goin to the speakin Tuesday?"
"Yep," saidl he, resting his toot on
the lower hinge and dusting his trou
sers with his cane.
"Who with?" she asked.
"I 'lowed to take Melles," said he.
"I wanted to go awfully," she .an
Swered, frowning prettily.
"I'm Sorry I hain't got a carriage,"
maid ho, flushing a deeper red as he
though~t of his next words. "But if
>. you don't mind, and Meliss don't, you
can go in tile buggy with- us."
"I don't mind," said Molly, not blush
iag in the least, "and I'll ask Meliss."
She hadn't forgottenl thie provaillng
fashion in feminine attire, but she
thought, biy exercising piroper care, two

That put an end to hostilities. The
scene can be imia'glned better than de7
scribed. Abijah turned away, and Mrs.
Meyer assisted the prostrate girl to,ber

the speech went on unheard. Every
body was laughing -too much to-isten;
everybody exeR'pt *Abijah. Ile didn't
- laugh; he was too worribd.

"Take Meliss," said Mrs. Maria.
"Course I'd ruther take Meliss,"
Abijah answered. "But. I can't well

suggested his aunt. "Ile used to spalk

"Don't eare," said he. "Molly hadn't
oughter lilt her with that umbrell'."
"You talk to her, anyway."* Pa'scall
in me. I got to go."
Abijah's mind was full of very seri
ous thoughts fis lie backed the pony be
tWeeni the s-hafts. Ile guessed lie had
better talk to Melissa, but lie would
have to be careful how lie talked. She
was dangerous. On the whole, he be
lieved lie liked Molly -best. She was
more <ilet, and then the pie she had
11111(10 beat MeliViSL's all hollow.
Just as lie fastened the last bucklel
lie saw Melissa Bray coming towardl
himLI in a borrowed hat, and lie turned
to hear what she had to say.
"I jest wanted to tell you, Bijah,"
said she, "that I wouldn't trouble you
to see nie home."
"Who're you guln with?" lIe asked.
"Ben's goin to take me," she said.
"He come alone."
Abijah said nothing, but after she
had gone and climbed in beside Ben he
t thought some more and shook his head
over his thoughts. .lelIssa had done

gone some way before he spoke at all,
r and it was not until they had passed

"I hain't never goin to speak to her
a again," said Moflly determnedly.
"You won't even say you're so~ry?"
"No. I wonl'L. But'ltely, B

Abijah didn't know whiat to say, so
I he kept <quiet until they were almost
I. within sigh: of' hiome. Then lie decided
it was-timie to sp~eak(.
t "I wlsht you wan't a Butternut, Mol

Starviig Natives of' lndia, With Mit

Iat Beel .
In large districts of I ndia to-day
milions of cattle could not be sold for
fifty cents a head. The country, yel
low and parebed, has been turned into
a desert by the failure of the Monsun
raine. There are gr-ass lands and fod
der in other parts of India, but the
por animals are too weak to be driven
to them, even if there were cat
tie buyers to take them away : so tLcy
dio like flies, succumbing to starvation
far more quickly than their owners.
The thought has never occurred to tbe
35,UCO,000 Indian peasantry now suffer
ing from hunger that the cattle would
have been a food resource to tide
them over the months of crop failure.
They have plenty of cattle. Among all
the animals of India the various breeds
of horned and humped cattle hold the
first place. They are the di-aft animals
in the little field of the poorest peas
ant. All the transportation of the in
land roads depends upon them. The
house that has not its cow is in the

would have been saved ;but the ver-y
Idea of making such provisions as this
ageinust the hor-rors of fainen would be
inexpressibly shocking to the 150,000,
000 people of India, who hase their
religious beliefs upon the Vedas.
They would never dream of such a pro
fanation of the teachings of Brahmiln
ism. They would rather swallow dirt,
andl gnaw rtoots than eat bee f, an d yect,
they arec not strict, vegetarians, for all

mutton when they can pr-ocure themi.
The Hindlus arid those who shar-e
with themn their religious beliefs are
just what hist.or-y tells us their fathers
were three and twenty centuius aigo.
The highest law thvt concerns the
IIlindu is tto eat cor-rectly and beef is
one of the proscr-ibed foods ; so w ithb
this. food resource in every far-myar-d,
prized highly, as it Is, by most of the
world, the Hindu dies of hunger rathber
thban partake of it,. These facts are
pecrhaps as Impressive an iflustration
as can be given of the profount Ilu
ence which relIgIous injunction anud
custom have upon the habits, tastes
and pr-ejud ices, and consequently upon
the cotumer-ce of whole natitons.
The value of t'ast Indian cattle for
food has been amply demnonstirated.
The 57,000,000 Mohammedans living in
1India have no qualms or scruples about.
heef eating. Some years ago we i-cad
almost daily for a time of bloodshed
between th4 Mohammedans and [in -
des of Northwest India. Boof was t-he
cause of thbe incipient warfare. Tne
Hindu neighbors of the Moslems die
cided that thb ir feelings had been out,
raged too long by the r-epugnant spec
tacle of cattle shambles and beef eat
inug. They resolved to put. an~ end t~o
ti~em, but the undertaking was tooI
large for the comnmarativoly small
number of zealots who eongaged in it.
fn this vast region, so densely pop'u
fated that the spectre of famine is not

meats are impor-ted except for iiiurot

world every year from $250,000J,000 to

buys about three-fourths as much as
she sells, her purchases are almost
wholly textiles, machinery, railroad
materIal and coal, even wh-n hunger
stalks abroad ; and the main ruitson
why the great evIl of famine is not
averted or mitigated by food imports
is because the rel1igiou-s tenets of most
of the people cointine them to the few
ci-eals they raIse themselves as the
mainstay of life. In one respect,, how
