THE OMAHA DAILY BEE : SATUKDAY , MAY 15 , 1880.
A TRIFLE OLD , BUT GOOD. How a Promising Young Man Took a Sleigh $ itle With His Beat Girl. A AlMolilcvritiri Sister flrlnga Pouting Lover * Pace to Pace A - Reconciliation ciliation nnd u Marriage , A bright moonlight night and a gay party. Peals of laughter in all keys lioat through thii keen , frosty air as sleigh- load after sleigh-load drive away from a brightly lit mansion until the street BCOIH s llllcd with the dashing sleighing party. Ono , a small , shell-like creation , drawn by n single black horse , leads the party. Jta occupants arc Mr. Harold Greystono arid Ins sister , Miss Nellie. Mr. Groy- Htone. after wrapping his sister In the fur robes , devotes himself to putting his horse at a spued that promises to leave the remainder of the party in the dis tance. For some reason Mr. Grovstono docs not share the exuberant spirits of the rest of the parly. On the contrary , ho seems a'good deal put out , to say the lon.st , iihd his usually good-humored countenance is overcast. His heavy black brows nro diawn together , and , iu spite of the sweeping mustache , ono can note the linn expression that lurks around the month. Altogether ho looks very grim , Miss Neltlu thinks , as she turns herself and surveys him. She is very small herself , and being burled to the chin in wraps it , is a work of time to turn herself sunicicntiy to see his face. Noting his expression , she be gan cautiously : "Harold , aren't you driving the horse too fast ? See , the others are away be hind. " "Wo will arrive all the sooner for supper , sis , " was the reply. "Oh , well , but the oysters are not put to eook yet , so wo needn't hurry on that Bcoro. " Harold reluctantly pulled up his horse a little. "Harold , did you ask Blanche to go with you ? " "No , by jove , I didn't. I am not qulto mi eh a fool as that. My lady Blanche will find that eho cannot twist every ono around her linger like Douglas. " "I don't think you need bo so hard on Blanche. She isn't era/.y after rich people ple at all. Wo are not rich , ami I'm sura she is always goodness itself , though you do put on awful airs and treat her as if she was the veriest stranger. As for Mr. tri Douulas , almost every one likes him , if ho Is a little soft. But Blanche isn't the least bit in love witn him. " "No. not in love with him , but his pock et-book. I never supposed she was in i love with him. " "Harold Greystouc , I am ashamed of 5'ou. You know there isn't a word of truth in what you say. There , I am glad we have got hero at last. I feel chilly in spite of wraps. " Nellie was right when she said his own pride had erected the barrier between them. The fact that Miss Leslie's parents arc grown wealthier within late years , while his own hail grown poorer , was ob stacle enough to Harold. Ho did not fancy the name of fortune hunter. All this anil a great deal moro ran through his head as ho gaily talked and danced with a particular rival of Blanche's who seemed determined to bring him to her foot. When at last the party concluded to turn their stops homeward Harold seized his own particular charge from a crowd of hooded and mulllotl hgurcs and speed- ly had her in the sleigh , completely en veloped in the robes. "Now , sis , remember you are not to move or hardly speak on the way homo , clso you will bo laid up with an awful cold and a red nose , and then you cannot fico your dear Fred when ho arrives to morrow. After dancing so much and eating a , warm supper you must be llUUWly blrb1lll. | and if I hear a sneeze , honiU'you stay for the rest of the winter , my child ; " which cheerful remark ho em phasized by a gantlo shaking. "You need not bo absolutely dumb. Just neil your head to signifj your ap proval of my remarks. Did you have a good time ? " A perceptible moving back and forth was his answer. "Yes , every ono Ijiul a splendid time , myself in particular , I entertained my self In watching Douglass play the clown to Miss Leslie's amusement. Ho did it to perfection. By George , I should have ' thought so many sweet smiles 'would have madu her sick. Shows how much a woman can stand when she makes up her mind to it , and I suppose her mind is made don't " up , you ? " 1 don't think Blanche likes Mr. Doug lass very well , " was the barely audible reply. 'The deuce you don't ! Oh , well ! but you am mistaken , I know. Doesn't she hhow him all sorts of favors , dancing with him repeatedly , oven giving him the dance she u ed always to give to mo and that.I should have enjoyed ho much to-night ? " "Diil you ask her for it ? " murmured the figure at his side. "Ahk her for it ? Not I. Though to toll the truth. Nellie , 1 , was awfully tempted to , It she had vouchsafed me ono friendly glance 1 would undoubtedly have mado'n fool of mysolf. " Some violent emotion seemed to bo agitating his companion , and her stnig- gles attracted , tlio attention of Mr. Grovstono ; ho shook her vehemently. "No , Nellie , I positively forbid you taking ad'a single shawl , " and ho at tempted to readjust her wraps , but the lady resisted his well-intended efforts , ami in a trice hud torn the veil from her f ace and displayed to his astoiiised ga/.o the laughing couutouunco of Blauoho Leslie. "Pray goion with yoifr remarks Mr. Greyhtono. Your style , though a little peculiar , is mivortholuis highly enter taining. I don't ' know when I have enjoyed - joyed a rldo so much. Aren't yon afraid wo shall upset if wo don't keep to lha road1'for the horse was following its own sweet will 'and meandering along the roadriido in nn aimless fashion , while the driver was staring at his com panion in utter ama/.emout. "What an ultor Idiot I have been ! " his [ lower of speech coining back to him by jerks. "Where is Nellie , and how on eurth.did you got hero , Blanche ? " "Oh , Nellie wanted to rida homo with the load 1 think she w s tired of your company , sir and I hadn't the heart to rufuso her when she wanted mo to take her place , " * "And you have been listening to all my Idiotio talkl What must you think of'mo ? Can yqii over forgive mo for the way 1 have talked ? and. " laying his hand onner arm , "toll me , Blanche , that you loathe and dcsplso that follow Douglass , " "But 1 do not loathe and despise Mr. Douglass. On the contrary I considered him ono of the pleasantest young imm 1 1 know. But what do you want to talk of Mr. Douglass for ? Are you so infatuated with film 'that ' yon cannot talk of any thing elsn ? "I Infatuated with him ? I heartily detest - test tlio man. 1 wanted to knock him down every time ho looked at you to night.

It was the last part of the place to lill up with graves , as if the people who laid their dead down there shunned leaving them close to the murderer's hist resting place. It was pointed out to stiangers and chil dren with the words : "Tho Frenchman lies buried theio , the first man ever hung in Somerset comity. " Ono day in December , 1815 , when the snow lay several feet deep upon the ground and the pines bent under their heavy white load , at a long , low , wooden tavern on the summit of the Allcghonics there stoppeil a sleigh containing two gentlemen , who alighted , went in , and asked refrcsnments for themselves and their horses. They snoln very broken English , suid they had not Jong been in this country. mll Were traveling for pleasure. 1'ho countrymen lounging nbcAit stared at them , because thov did not often see such guests at Statlor's"tav ern. They were handsomely dressed in the fashion of the dnv. The elder was tall , large , line-looking , with jet black hair and eyes. The younger was pale , slight , Intellectual in appearance , with largo , soft , brown eyes and chestnut hair. hair.Among Among the crowd of idlers and drink ers at the tavern was a drnvor who took 11 drop too much and bragged of the line sales hn had made of his cuttle In Cum berland , from where ho wail just now re turning with his money in' his pookot. The drover rode away on his white horse a little while before dusk for his homo , some miles ofl' . The Frenchmen soon afterward inquired where the next good stopping place WHH to bo found , onlorcd their horse and sleigh , and drove in the track of the drover ' , saying they wore iu haste to reao'h a certain jilaco by the next day. That night the diovor's waiting wife saw "his horse como home without his master. with his white coat spotted with blood stains. The drover's body was found next morning , still'and Mark , with u bullet through his brain , bhot from be hind. The neighborhood was roused. The Frenchmen were at once suspected and pursued. They were found at n pub lic house some distance on , sitting quietly in a room in the second story. When they suddenly became aware that there was an excited mob of countrymen after thorn they were too much excited and frightened to use the little Kngli.sh they know , and could only gesticulate and chatter in their native tongue , wliinli was all lost on the boors of Somerset county. At length , being too hard pressed , one ot them jumped from the back window of the room. It was the big one. The little one tried to follow , but was caught by the clothes by a burly Dutchman and held for a moment , suspended outside. Some one was going to shoot him from below , but the Dutchman said Unit ho would attend to the little one and that those below should look after thi > big one. Ho was answered bv a rillo shot , and the big one , who had been Irving to run through the deep snow , fell ( lead. The little one was taken to Somerset , tried and found guilty of the drover's murder. The monov which tlie drover had carried upon his person was never found. It was supposed by many that the Frenchman had thrown it into the iiro when they found they were going to bo mobbed. The pale young gentleman protested his inno cence , said ho had inllucntial friends and family in his own country , to whom the authorities hero would have to answer for their treatment of him. Ho persisted to the last in the declaration that ho and his compagnon tie voyage had passed the drover on the road anil parted with him in a quiet and friendly manner. Ho re monstrated violently when the olh'cials came to nut him into a cart with a iiido pine cplhn and take him out to be hanged , and tried to break the collin to pieces. He wore about him a miniature , set with pearls , of a lovely girl. Hq gave his mime as Noel Hugiiot. Many wondered if that girl did not wait and watch and pine in Ffcancc for her beautiful lover , who was hung by the neck until ho was dead in the far-off mountains of Pennsylvania. Many thought him a victim of circumstantial evidence , that the drover's murderer es caped beet free with the money , and that Noel Iluguol was an innocent man , his mysterious disappearance never ac counted for to his tricnds in Franco. Ho was refused the privilege of writing to them after he was arrowed. Many years after the hanging a party of young men were discussing Noel Iluguel , and there was some dispute about whore ho was buried. Then and there , at the dead hour of the night , they went to the graveyard , dug him up and found his bonus. One of the young men aforesaid was Jcre'miah S. Black. LONG DISTANCE TALKING. SiiccofiHfiil Telephone Communication Uofivoou Philadelphia a ml Boston. Philadelphia Record : Philadelphiannd Boston can now exchange courtesies by telephone with as much precision as local subscribers can communicate with each other , and it may soon bo in order for Mayors Smith and O'Briunt tooxecliun < * o greetings between Iiulopcndcnco Hall and Fancuil Hall : Some tlmo ago a line was constructed by the Ameri can Hell Telephone company , and is now in successful operation buUyeon Boston and New York. The At lantic telegraph and telephone company has recently completed a line connecting Now York with Philadelphia , and now conversation may easily bo carried on between Philadelphia nnd Tithe "Hub. " This distance of < K\i miles Is the longest over which telephonic communication has yet been made , and these two lines tire the only lonir distance lines which have been specially constructed for telephone - phone IIRO. Conversation was carried on between Philadelphia and Wash ington as long ago as 1870 , and prior to that timu even louder connections wore oU'eeteii , but In .ill Instances ordi nary telegraph lines were made use of , and the results wore not very Kiitisfau- torv. In order to render conversation audible It was necessary for the speaker to shout into the instrument , and at tlio same tlmo the listener at the other end of the line had to strain every nerve to catch the sounds. Conversation under those circumstances ? eon becomes very tedious to both parties , and1 cannot bo carried on to any great length. In the recently completed line , how ever , hpuclal attention lias been paid to all the details calculated to facilitate loiig-dibtanco conversation. A metallic circuit is used , and a No , 11 copper wire is substituted for the usual iron wire. As n result , conversation has been so facili tated that oven less exertion Is necessary than in ilia use of the local wires. The ordinary Instruments arc used , the Blake transmitter being replaced by a Email long-dl.stanco transmitter , about the size of a gentleman's watch , which is brought close to the mouth when speaking. The company is not ynt ready for the transaction of business , nor has it opened any publio olllce in this city , not having succeeded us yet in securing right of way into Philadelphia , The line at present ntfsiU Walnut street wharf , the com pany's Application for permission to bring its wires through the streets of the nily being Mill bcforo city councils.

Fashion's ' Few Ohangos In the Toga of Man Kind , A Variety of Cnt nnd Coot to Suit Both Tnsto anil I'lirse Hulllcd Fronts mill Inunnuulnto Vests. Philadelphia Times : It wassaid of the Quakers that they wore a peculiar people ple , nnd no far as dress is concerned the same might bo said of the people of Phila delphia to-day. As compared with men of any other largo city , Philadelphia men as a rule dress peculiarly. Whether for business or lor dross , they scorn to bo actuated by three ideas about their clothes to have them cut simply , to have thorn of quiet and unostentatious pat terns and colors.and todmyo them made us nearly as possible HKO other Philadel- phians' . The individuality of some of the most prominent citizens is disclosed and emphasized in their attire. Mr. Brew- stcr's rullles and white hat and Mr. Vaux's tight-buttoned black frock coat and low-cut-shoes , which ho wears all the year round regardless of weather , arc as familiar as the face of the clock in Inde pendence hall. Ono of the latest , taken up is tlio revi val of au old fashion. Fifty years ago the bucks wore wearing high-collared surtouts and and broud-capod top coats much the same as thu gilded society youths arc wearing now. But there Is a deep chasm to cross bcforo the features of dross half a century ago can bo revived. It a .senator .should nso to spcak in a suit such as Webster wore when he replied to Iluy no , the pi ess from ono cud of the country to tlio ether would ring with chntllng laughter. It is interesting In noticing the fashions for men this year and as usual the best taste In this country takes Its cue from London to observe the steadfastness with which usage clings to a few primary and sensible ideas in regard to men's dross , especially in coats. The great idea is to drape the figure , preserving the outline , and giving comfort without interfering with freedom. No matter how trousers or waistcoats may change , it seems as though coats are fixed and will remain as they are until some total revolution in apparel takes place. The four prevailing styles of coils which have now boon liin" for many years will probably remain many years more. They arc the s-ack. the frock , the four-button cutaway and the dress coat. All of them belong to the outfit of almost cvcr.y gentleman , no matter whether ho mingles in the fashionable act or not. The sack or lounging coat is tlio most indispensable , as it is the easiest , the most desirable in active bodily move- incuts , and the most borvicoablo when anything but dignity is required. It is worn much foi business. The nattiest garment that has come into vogue in re cent years is the four-button cutaway , which avoids carrying around any faiipcrllous fabric and is a com promise between dignity and case. The Prince of Wales now wears this kind of coat on the street and on almost all occasions not formal enough for a dross suit. A frock coat is , as usual , servicea ble on many occasions of more or less formality , especially nt funerals , day weddings and for afternoon calls. They are as a rule becoming to tall men The newest things noticed in the coats for spring and summer this season is that they all button lower and show moro of the shirt and scarf. Dark sack coats' with fancy trousers'"will bo morn worn than entire suits of the same ma terial. The very latest and most fash ionable material is a sort of curly , roughish - ish stun"a Scotch cheviot.callcd "nig- gcrhcad. " Another new material is a black cheviot of light w'ciglit , with a self-plaid. Spring overcoats are also cut loose , without being shaped in at the back , and the newest materials in use are light drabs and putty shades some in the plain colors and others in three line diagonals. All coats arc made loose , oven cutaways , and hardly any smoohtly Mirfaced cloth is used. In overcoats black diagonals are also fashionable for spring1. The spring overcoat is worn short. The long top coats which have been in vogue the last winter will be used to some extent for traveling. Some of the cleverest men in the coun try have been hostile to swallow-tails , and there are a number of men in Phila delphia who can be persuaded to don a dross suit only with the greatest dillicnlty , and arc ill at ease until they get out of it. George W. Childs looks upon a dress suit as a sort of torture , and never wears one if ho can help it. Tlioro are several influ ential gentlemen who refuse to wear dress suits under any circumstances. A Cha-stiiut street tailor who has just returned from abroad made dilligcnt in quiry in London as to any possible varia tions in the dross suit , and was unable to hear any except the introduction to some o.\tont of fancy waistcoats and embroid ery in colors and fancy buttons on white waistcoats. Dress trousers , like all other trousers , are being made a Httlo wider , with a slight spring over the instep. Broad bands down the side are not asmtiqh used in fashionable circles as they were. A few rows of soustacho are still adhered to by a few swells who belong to military organizations and carry this distinction into dra\ving-rooms with thorn The only novelty 9f the season , and curiously enough it lies In the real of the dross suit , Is tlio dress suck , It appears that in Kiighmd , among the most fashion able men , a dross sack coat has become admirable for certain occasions. In the best society all over the polite world there is an unwritten law that tlio dross suit should not bo worn .Sunday , Accordingly , at little Sunday night path- erings , or oyon ( linnorri , it is considered bad tabto to bo rigged out in a drass suit , though a few callow youths L'ot them selves up so when they make Sunday night calls upon their lady friends. Ono of the best authorities on dress says that no matter how good a man's clothes may bo , if ho has not a good hat. good shoos and a suitable- cravat , ho will not look well dressed. Of all parts ot the tollnt the cravat or ncoktio is the solo one thaUipportalns to the man , and wherein his individuality is most expressed. The credit or discredit for his hat , his coat and his boots may belong to the hatter , the tailor , and the bootmaker. But for thu cravat a man has neither assistance nor support , and is abandoned to his own resources. The character of ( ho man is revealed in the oravat. It may bo pre tentious , tliffuso , insipid , egotistical , an gular , carolMR or symmetrical. If there is the luast ticito of foppery in a man , it must crop out in his cravat. Now that coats urn being cut lo\vor \ iu the nuek cravats , scarfs anu neckties become of additional Impoitanci * , and more atten tion will U ; paid to them than usual. For spring anil summer white "four in- hands'1 will bo popular with many young men. Collars with rounded points that turn ov < ? r In front will bo mostly worn , though there is promise of a revival of the turn-down collar for mimmcr. Checked nnd colored shirting" aiv > to bo moro worn limn usual , and in white shirts there will bo great iaiiitudu , and Marseilles fronts , ri'.Hles and all sorts of fancy notions will bo indulged in. The favorite culls are made for link stilus , Low cut patent leather shoes will bo as fashionable us over for summer , though buttoned gaiters for general wear , re main the favorite .stylo. Somu of the nos ; fashionable uiou are going back' to fijuurc toes , and pointed shoes nro snld ( o bA qulto tabooed in the best circles in Lou don. . The high hat is a dressy thlnK nnd is proper to wear now , oven with h sack coat. The latest Derby it round crowned and has a close , rolling brlitu- Stripes and quiet ulails are the favorite pattern's in materials for trousers thin season , though many of the plain colors will bo worn. Trousers are cut wider than over before in ton years. I'lio ImrRcst TclcHcopo In the " \VorliU Hartford Post : Passongcrs out of Boston on the Boston and Albany rail * road may have noticed just across th4 Charles river , at the first bridge out of the city and opposite Cottage Farn Station , a handsome residence , and bacK of it n low , round-topped obsorvaloryl nnd outside , near it , a long whlto mode , of a telescope , and In the same yard a two-story brick building. This building is the factory whcro the great Russian telescope was made , as well as many others also famous , and where work is now going on for the Lick' tcjosciopo , which will bo the largest In thu world. Of the two discs of glass , each ono yard In diameter , for the Lick telescope , the Hint glass has been made n long timo. but the crown glass , although ordered IIvo years ago , was only received by the darks in September last. It was made , after repeated trials and failures , i\t an establishment near Paris , the only" ono that could get out such a piece of work. Each glass cost $ 'Jo.OJO in the rougi. | find they can not bo finished before fall. At lir.st , machinery could do n Httlo rough grinding , but for months past the bovo mind only has been used in applying the Dolishiiig substance , which is roupro. The glasses have now reached a staffj whcro tlio removal of u small portion 6f the surface in the wrong place would ruin them. They are frequently tested , sot In n circular iron frame , called a cell. No instruments can ho used for th test , but the long experience of the Clark * has given thorn a judgment which is un erring. Very soon tlio toots will be made in the model of the tolesoopo outside tlo ) building. This model is of the si/.o of the proposed Lick telescope and is.07fe.ot . long. Thcso two louses are set ( J Inches apart in their iron frame , which has openings to allow of the glasses being properly cleaned on each side. Lcns s and frame together weigh over seven hundred pounds. While everything now appears to bo perfect , some slight defect in the glass that has n-t yet appeared , or an accident , may render useless all the labor of months. When completed the great telescope will be placed in the observatory on Mount Hamilton , in Santa Clara County , Cal. Mr , James Lick left $700,000 in his will for the pur pose of constructing the necessary build ings and "for a telescope superior to and more powerful than any yet mado. " An astronomer has stated that this tolcs.copo will bring the moon , S10.000 miles dis tant , within , apparently , a hundred miles of the beholder. It will cost $00,000 , and will bo covered by a stool dome 7(5 ( feet in diameter , weighing ninety-live tonR. Besides the observatory arc many other buildings , containing all the valuable instruments necessary for a complete establishment to carry out Mr. Licit's intentions.

Chicago Tribune : Prices of moats , botli at wholesale and retail , hayc recently ad vanced , and yesterday a'Tribune , reporter- sought to ascertain tlio ronsdnVrhf reforV" ' Armour & Co. . it was said , had withdrawn their dozens of wagons which , they usqa to scud through the city -selling "cul'A'ifi carcasses of beef and ether animals to smaller dealers. "Cut-up" beef , in tl language of the wholesale dealer in ani mals just slaughtered , is beef sold in. quantities IcsstTianaqnartcr'of the cnlirb animal. Bcof sold uy the carcass or hi sections larger than a quarter is callckT selling "straight" bci-f. The lira stHl sells "straight" beef , buf principally fa eastern markets. They have also diseod * tinned the canning of beef , and for tWp reason , a Jackson street wholesale butche'r said , that canned beef is a drug iirth'p market. As long as they cannot dispose of "cut" beef at a profit , it would not pay them to separate it from the poorest per ' tiou of the beef , outof which canned beef is made. They find it moro profitable to ship and soil carcasses whole. The sus- mmsion of this industry will , however , bo but temporary. Some time ago a boy cott was declared against Armou'r's " " beef and of the - "cut" , some dcalfij-s think that this had an inlliumco in the suspension of that branch of trade. Otfi- ors , and among them County Commis sioner Michael R. Lt-yden , whoso whole sale meat market is on Jack.son struct. near Canal , think that the boycott had "nothing to do with the case , " or in the withdrawal of the wagons used In ped dling loins and ribs. They still peddle "straight" beof. As to the rise In tlio price of moats , some of the dealers think it attributable to the railroad strikes and the consequent lack of transporting facilities , Others deny that that is anything like a true and sullicicnt reason. Bcof and mutton , they say , is always high at .this time of year ; it was as high last year us now , and for n while oven higher. Bool , said Mr. Ley- den , will continueto rule higher until grass cattle come In , or until about Juno 10. Pork is at a standstill , good country pork selling at from r > cents to .11 cents wholesale ; stock yards pork at from 4 cents to fi cents , "Straight" beef that used to sell for OJc per pound now brings 8 emits , and mutton that now costs 10 cents used to bo sold for 0 cents. The best quality of porterhouse steaks now brings ' . ' ! ) cents and : . ' . " > cents a pound , and other cuts at proportionate rates. The loading hotel and restaurant keepers say , however , that they pay no moro for their meats now than recently. Mr. Eastland , of Kasllund it Duddlc- ston , Fifth avenue , near Washington street , says that the present advance in the price of beef is due tp the regular spring advance in the price of uutllu. His firm pays $1 a hundred more , for oiittlu now than three months ago , and expects to pay a still higher llgiiro In a week or two. Armour &Co. , ho hays , have closed their canning works temporarily from the fact that they were overstocked with canned beef , and could not find a nmruot for their surplus. The.yyoro , ho says , accustomed to soil the loin and thii bet ter part of the beef to small butcliorp , and use the plate pieces , etc. , for canning ; but now , of course , they sell the coarse as well as the flue cuts without di8crm ! inalion. Mr. Eastlund ( tne.s not think that either actual or anticipated dilll- culty In the way of transportation on ac count of the recent railroad strikes has anything to do with Armour & Co.
