Echoes from the Phonograph.
What Mrs. UarstinrlowHeard Alter Three
Days' Absence lroin 11 one.
It happened that Mrs. Bnrstinglow
was going down to Keokuk for a few
days, mid Mr. Bnrstinglow wasiucon- ,
soluble. At one time he protested
that she should not go; he could not
endure the lonesome bouse during her
absence. Ami then again he declared
that if she must go, he would ueglect
his office and let his business go to
the bow-wows, and ho would go with
her. At length, however, sho per
suaded him to be reasonable, and on
her repeated assurance that she woul d
not remain away longer than three
days, he consented to let her go. He
even bought her ticket, and ordered
the carriage and paid for it two days
ahead, lest his resolution should give
way, and he should forget her going
from him. Ami from that time till
the morning of - her depnrturo, Mr.
Bnrstinglow spoke in subdued tones
and moved about with theairjofa
man whose heart was jburied under
mountains of grief. Before she left
the house, Mrs. Bnrstinglow set the
phonograph in the sitting room, bo
hind the clock. Then she kissed he r
disconsolate husband,and begged him
to preserve his precious life for her
sake while ehe was away, nud then
she wns gone.
Every dny during her throe dnys'
visit in the Gntc City she received a
letter from her mourning husband,
bigging her to como bad; and telling
lid how lonesome he was without her,
and how like a grave theemptj houso
seemed, nnd how the hours drngged
over his aching heart with lendeu
feet. Aud in threo days she enmo
home, and filled the solemn house
with sunlight and laughter ftgain?
Tho evening after her return to Bur
lington, she took down tho phono
"I wonder," sho said, "what we said
last in its hearing? It must have
been something while wo were dis
cussing my visit. Or may be it has
caught 6omo of your poor, longi ng
monnings while I was away."
And then she turned the crank.
"Lord, no," croaked tho phono
graph, in tones of hearty rea-nu ranee;
"no danger of that; she's safe in
Keokuk for three days; saw her safe
ly oft' myself this morning. Light
your cigar while 1 light another
lamp and make the loom look cheer
"Why," exclaimed Mrs. Barstiag
low, in a countenance of amazement,
"what on earth is it saying ?"
"Oh, some nonsense, some of your
visitors have talked into it some lime
or other," replied her hunshaud,
nervously, "people talk all kinds of
stuff into a phonograph, you know.
They say anything for talk."
Mrs, Bnrstinglow, looking only
half convinced, gave the crank
another turn.
'This is devilish good whisky,
Barsty, ' ejaculated the machine,
very earnestly. "Von don't get it in
Burlingtou, do you?"
Mrs. Barstiuglow gave a little
"My d(ar," said her hunsband,
looking now quite as worried as he
had looked when he was begging her
not to go to Keokuk, "put it away,
somebody has had it out in the stable,
and it might say something perfectly
shocking, you know. Do put it
But Mrs. Barstiuglow, upon whom
the spirit of investigation had decend
ed with great power, ground away,
and the phonograph, in a voice raar
velously like her husband's went re
morselessly on.
"Not much; they don't make this
kind now, Its some old Mononga
hela, copper-distilled that Mrs. Bars
tinglow's mother gave her for medi
cal purposes three years ago. Fill
up again, there's plenty of it, and I
can replace it with any kind of bevor
ago when it's gone. Tim old ^irl
w. n't Un ? w li.e .?in:- " .
Mrs. Barstiuglow felt herself turn
ing to stone, out the next tarn uftli s
crank brought out an uproprio it.
''Ha, ha, ha] Here's to the o. g 1"
That funned her cheeks into , a
"ior mercy's lake, Ma lach i Bars
tiuglow," she shrieked, "whatdoes
this mean ?*'
Mr, Bnrstinglow now 1 oked as
though he ready did wish she had
never gone to Keokuk.
"It's just as I tell you," he said,
with *au effort to look unconcerned,
that was like a humorous book, a !
colossal success, so far as its complete
failure was concerned. "Somebody
has beeu talking all sorts of nonsense
into it just for talk's sake. How else
could it get hold of snob dreadful stu <f
in ourdcar little home, lovey?"
Mrs. Barstiuglow didn't know, hu t
she turned away and the phono raph
nske 1 carelessly :
"Throw around for the deds."
She thought she would faint, but
she didn't, and the pitihss machine
proceeded to remark, with a variety
of voices:
"Its my age."
"You'll have to straddle that blind
if you come in.''
"Give'ine twojeards."
"Chip one."
"I'll see your little one a id raise
you a couple."
"Bush tho bottle this way, Ben."
"Ain't you going to stay in. Harr ?"
"Can't stay in on a pair of sixes."
"Call you."
"Two small pair, hings to head."
"Tens and donees. Take the pot."
"Bnrtsy, get us something to cat.
Old girl left the cupboard k ys, didn't
"Lord, yes; told her I was going to
keep bach at home to save expenses
nud keep out of bad company."
"Hn.hn, hn!! Ho! ho!! ho!!!"
"Oh," yelled Mr. Barstiuglow, un
able to contain himself any longer,
while his wife, more dend than alive,
leaned over tho phonograph and
ground away at the crank in a dnzed
kind of a way. Oh, keep it up! That's
right! Keep her agoing! Grind it
all outl Dog gone the diabolical
piece of black nrt and the vile assas
sin that invented it! Keep it up 1
That's right! Believe a senseless,
diabolical piece of monstrous mech
anism rather than your husband.
Keep her agoing. Keep it tip!"
Aud Mm. Barstinglow did keep it
up. She kept it up, ami ii.sto.ied to
that phonograph swear am. b'houtaud
howl; sho heard it shriek, "Oh, my
eye; my dye I4' she heard it toll some
one to let some one cl*e "have it
again in the same place;" she heard
tt warn somebody to "hold his head
over the stove-hearth, and not let his
uose bleed on the carpet," and at last,
as it assured her very thickly and
with some dilKoulty that it was "a
ban' ofjorry gooffuf-fuf fellows" and
that "won'-lne-won' g' ometill morn
ing," she ground it into silence, and
sank back, speechless and breathless,
while Mr. Barstinglow look the
phonograph out into the back yard
and smashed it into so in my and siie'i
small fragments that. it. couldn't re
produce even a steamboat whistle.
'?'Now, then, I guess you won't tel!
on me any more, you old blabber."
A Model Conductor. *

?I left Mary villc and went South on
a*rnilroad so full of initials that it
soiiuded like a Masonic Lodge, and I
wondered how they kept the train on
the track. But .there was a conduc

monument. He didn't stand around
and let his passengers hunt seats for
themselves. When be came iuto the
car and saw one man with no seat
and another man with four he gently
but firmly bounced the expansive
man and made him withdraw within
the metes and bouuds described by his
ticket. He wasn't ugly or cross about
it, but he had a way of explaining to
a man with one ticket aud tbres

A passenger on the Spartanburg
and Union Railroad train last night,
?tibi us a ''good one" on Capt. B.
M'Adin the popular conductor of
that road, which occurred dur ng the
rush, n week or two ago. The Cap
tain was on the grand rounds for
tickets! and uftcr gobbling up a num
ber of dead heads, he came to a very
large and talkative lady, who was
very polite, and while almost gasping
for breath, she told the gallant Cap
tain that she had not bad time to buy
a ticket, but she bad the money. She
was crowded iuto a seat with another
portly lady, and could not move
about very handily, ami asked the
Captain to reach down and get the
money out of her stocking! saying
that there were a great many thieves
about, and she wished to be very
careful with her fuuds. Captain
McAdin quietly remarked that the
railroad didn't charge old ladies, and
he toddled oil'after other tickets, the
crowd near grinning at his expense.

A Treasury Lady the Victim of
A Washington correspondent snys :
One of those ingenious women whose
business it is to examine mutilated
nnd illegible currency in the Treasu
ry 1ms recently come to griof. Thie
woman had so ably performed this
intricate work for several yoars as to
have become almost indispensable
not only to tho department, but
scarcely less ho to numerous banks in
different parts of the country, who
but fur her patience must have lost
considerable sums in worn curroncy.
Her skill in restoring what looked
like a hopeless mass was marvelous,
and in consideration of her persever
ance in this direction, some of the
banks have from time to time attest
ed their appreciation of the material
benefit thus derived, by handsome
donations of money, one or two, it is
understood, paying her as high as
SI ,000 per year. I take equal pride
in the gal lau try of such men and the
ability of such a women. Too often
are women compelled to feel that
they gain nothing by tnaked fidelity.
These gills from the banks were, of
course, in addition to the tegular
salary paid by the treasury, of 81,200.
For a considerable time it was sadly
noticed that this woman was mani
festly falling into the insidous power
of a terrible syren. Often and again,
it could not be denied, she was not
quite herself long before the hour for
the close of work. Admonitions,
kind and gentle, and warnings, oft
repeated, were of no avail. She was
hopelessly enthralled. At last she
came to the office one morning ul
ready too oblivious to faithfully per
form her usual task,and, as patience
had long since ceased to be a virtue,
a carriage was called and she was
sent, a victim of alcohjl, to her homo,
there to find that ominous yellow
envelope containing a notice of dis
missal from service had preceded her
coming. Sstrange to say, her prede
cessor in the same position, who had
served long and acceptably, but for
this weakness, was discharged for tho
same cause.

player at Omaha lately "made use of
a phrase such as this: 'I hope Christ

them and then asked him to cut them,
