The Judge of the County Court vaa
in trouble. r ' .
He had adjourned his court, the
urors had gone home, and he was
left alone with the Sheriff. '
No not entirely alone a sallow
faced woman in a limp and faded
gingrham sunbonnet and a limper and
more faded homespun dress crouched
down by the door of the Court House
with a baby in her lap.
The Judge stepped outside for a
moment and looked down the one
Straggling street which constituted
the main thoroughfare of Blue Rock.
. A dreary, drizzling rain was falling,
and there was scarcely a sign of life
in the little village.
In response to the call the sheriff
followed the Judge he was a big, tall
fellow, with a good natured face, and
his shambling walk impressed one
with an idea of his laziness and gen
eral incapacity.
"Jim," said the Judge, "I'll be
durned if I know what to do with
Bally Black."
The sheriff hitched up his baggy
Ieans trousers and then scratched his

ply, and a broad grin spread over his
Undoubtadly the Judge was in a
fix he knew that well enough with
out hearing from tho sheriff. Sally
Black had been convicted of vagrancy
in his court, and he had sentenced
her to six months imprisonment a
sentence which was to be carried out
by knocking down the prisoner to
the highest bidder.
As a rule, the prisoners disposed of
in this manner were negroes, and the
farmers of the country were always
ready to bid for them and put them
to work on their plantations, where
they were treated like the other hands
until their term of service expired.
The farmers around Blue Ilock were

it was merely an agency through
which they were supplied with labor

cause she was the only regular tramp
and beggar in the country a good-for-nothing
white woman, who had
come from no one knew where, and
was evidently going to the devil.
But when their wish was rrratified

and desolation had been tried, con
victed and sentenced, the honest
countrymen slipped out of the court
room with dow ucast f aces a nd star ted
homeward. Sheriff Jim spent an
hour on a stump in front of the tem
ple of justice vainly endeavoring to
auction off his human merchandise,
but nobody would offer a bid.
; Of course it was no feeling of com
ipassionfor Sally Black that they
held them back it was the baby!
"Billy Betts would take her," said
the Judge, coming out of a brown
study. "I think, Jim, I'll send you
down to the house."
"All right, Jedge," answered Jim.
His Honor looked inside the door.
Sally Black still sat on the floor
leaning against the wall with her
baby in her lap. She did not look
up at the'Judge's stern face, but the
little girl did, and began to laugh
and crow in a spasm of delight.
The Judge hastily beat a retreat.
."Jim," he said, "you needn't go
after Betts.
"All right, Jedge."
"The fact is, Betts is not the right
sort to have a convict; he's a hard
man too rough, you know."
""Jesso, Jedge."

We'll lock her up in jail until to-
morrow, 6aiu the other.
The Judge walked inside the court
house and stooped down to tell the
woman of his determination.
A pair of blue eyes flashed at him
in riotou merriment, and a pair of
pink fists struck at him and then
the child's long fingers entwined
themselves in his long beard.
"Oo's oo?" chirruped the babv.
His Honor pushed his captor back,
very gently, and then looked ah the
"She's a peart gal," remarked
The Judge bolted out of the door,
loJlowed by the laithiui omcer.
"Jim, this is getting serious."
"Looks like a tough old case,
volunteered the Sheriff.
"I can
an't lock that baby up in
old jail, and I won't.'
"How will voufix it, Jedge?" asked
the other. "Under the law we can't
bid for the prisoner. ;
"I know what I'll do," said the
Judge "I say, Bob, come herel" he
shotted to a man on tho other side
of the street.
Bob crossed over verv reluctantlyf

"D n it, man!" shouted the Judge,

with a , determined look, "you just

ittle cabin on the hill. They won't

Bob had no more, to say. It
was a good bargain for him, and in
less than, five minutes he was march
ing down the street,, followed by
Sally Black and the baby. '
The next day the Judge sent in his
resignation to the Governor.
' To his friends he made a very satis
factory explanation.
"Under our special art," he said,
"I receive no salary. I am paid in
fees, and X don't get any. Then I
have to lend the prisoners money to
pay their fines, and it is getting so
that I will have to support some of
the convicts. This court business
will run me in debt" if I stick to itv
and that is why I resigned." ,
So Sally Black and t he baby were
quartered in a comfortable log cab
in on the Judge's plantation, and
their rations were sent to them every
week from the big white house over
the river. ., " ; ;
What became of them after Sally's
term was out? ; "?;
The Blue Rock people would laugh
at such a queston. They knew the
Judge. Sally Black needs no written
lease no contract with witnesses.
She will stay in the little cabin as
long as she and the baby like it, and
the neighbors think she. is settled

A Bit of Criminal History.
Sim Coy's new book brings out the
historical fact that the first counter
feit greenback (1862 series) was
made at Lawrence, in this county,
during that year, by members of the
criminally famous Johnson family.
Many thousands of the bills, were
placed in circulation, people not
dreaming of a counterfeit, so early
after the first appearence of the bill,
and besides the stirring events of the
war largely di verted their attention
from business matters.
Pete McCartney was the financial
backer of the Johnsons, and after the
plate had been worked the Johnsons
attempted to unload McCartney,
but his suspicions being aroused he
stole the plate and caused it to be
electrotyped, after which it was
returned to its old hiding place. The
electrotype was a marked improve
ment on the original counterfeit, and
McCartney worked off his series in
this city, and over $100,000 of the
spurious stuff were readily placed in
circulation. Meanwhile .the secret
service officers, led by Mai. Wood,
had been apprised of the counterfeit,
and were laying for the Johnsons and
McCartney. Instead of tracking the
latter to his rooms, where the printing
on, Mcl.artney wasar-
rested at the postoffice, and in a few
days, in company with the Johnsons,
who had been found at Lawrence, he
was forwarded under strong escort

to the military prison at Washington.
hile,the tram was crossing the
mountains, although McCartney
was handcuffed and shackled at the
time, he managed tomakehisescape,
and in two weeks he was back again

the Johnsons succeeded
in making
terms, by which they es-
caped prosecution by turning up the
original plate and giving the officers
certain pointers with reference to
other offenders. Neither the John
sons nor the government knew until
long afterwards that McCartney had
an electrotype, and had stolen a
march on his former associates.

Swagger in the Old Days.
From Besant's "Fifty Years Ago.""
There is still swagger, even in these
days; cavalry officers in garrison
towns are still supposed to swagger.
Eton boys swagger in their own lit
tle village: undergraduates swagger.
The putting on of "side" by the way,
is a peculiarly modern form of swag
ger; it is the assumption of certain
qualities and powers which are con
sidered " as deserving of respect.
Swagger, fifty years ago, was a
coarser kind of thing. Officers swag
gered; men of rank swaggered, gen
no longer any military frogs swa
tlemen in military frogs there
gered in taverns, clubs, and in the
streets. The adoption of quiet man
ners; the wearing of rank with unob
trusive dignity; the possession of
wealth without ostentation: of wit
without the desire to be always show
ing it these are points in which we
are decidedly in ad vanee of our fathers
There was a great deal of cuff and
collar, stock and breastpin about
the young fellows of the day. They
were oppressive m. their gallantry;
in public places they asserted them
selves; they were loud m their talk.

that under one single leaf fifty armed
horsemen m battle array could sta
tion themselves and perform their
evolutions. No one who heard this
exaggeration deemed it worthy of
refutation; but one said; with the.
utmost composure and coolness.
that, he, too, had been somewhat "of
a traveler, and. had been as far as
Japan, where, to his astonishment,
he had seen more than three hundred
coppersmiths at work upon an im
m?nse cauldron, and that live hun

smooth arid polish it. "For what
purpose, then, ' would they, wish to
use this monstrous cauldron?'' a&kt

ookhi;:; the cabbage-plants, sir,, such
as '' wero. te;i;ugu3 about just
i or., was tiro answer.
I am not quite sure of dates, but it
was late in the Fall, I think, of 1777;
that a foraging party from the Brit,
ish camp in Philadelphia made a de
scent upon the farm of Major Rudolph,
south of that city, at Darby. Hav
ing supplied themselves well with
provender, they were about to begin
their return march, when one of, the
soldiers happened to espy a valuable
cow, which at that moment unfortu
nately made her appearance in the
lane leading to the barri-yard; and
poor Sukey was immediately confis
cated for the use of the company.
Now, this unfortunate cow happen
ed to be the pride of the , farm, and
was claimed as the exclusive property
of Miss Anne Rudolph the daughter
of the ouse aged twelve years. . Of
course, no other animal on the estate
was so important as this particular
cow. and her contjseation oy xne
soldiers could not be tolerated lor
a moment. So Miss Anne made an
mpetuous dash for her recovery, but
finding the men deaf to her entreaties
and the sergeant proof against the
storm of her indignation, the high
spirited child rushed over to the sta-.
lies, saddled her pony, and was soon
galloping off toward the city, deter
mined to appeal to the commander-in-chief
of the British army, if noth-
less would save the life of her
Meanwhile, poor Sukey trudged
along, her reluctant steps quickened
now and then by a gentle
prick with the point of a bayonet in
her well-rounded side.
To reach the city before the forag
ing party was the one thought of tho
child, as her pony went pounding
along the old Chester road at a pace
that soon brought her within the
British lines. She was halted at the
first outpost, by the guard, and the
occasion of her hot haste was de
manded. The child replied:
"I must see the General immediate
"But the General cannot be dis-
urbed for every trifle. Tell me your
business, and if important, it will be
reported to him."
"It is of great importance, and 1
cannot stop to talk to you. Please
et go my pony, and tell me where
o find the General."
"But, my little girl, I cannot let
vou pass until you tell me whence
you come and what your business is
within these lines.
' "I come from Dardy, and my busi
ness is to seethe General immediate-
y. No one else can tell him what I
have to say."
The excitement of the child, togeth
er with her , presistance had its in
fluence upon the officer. General
Washington was in the neighbor
hood with his ragged regiments,
patiently watching the opportunity
to strike another blow for the liberty
of the colonies. -The officer - well
mew that valuable information of
the mo vements of the rebels frequent-
V reached the Bnttish commander
through families residing in the
country, and still in secret friendly
to the crown. Here might be such a
case, and this consideration deter
mined the soldier to send the child
orward to headquarters. So, sum
moning an orderly, he directed him
to escort the girl to the General.
It was late m the afternoon by this
time, and Cornwallis was at dinner
with a number of British officers, when
"A little girl. from the country with a
message for the General," was an
nounced. "Let her come in at once. said the
General, and a few minutes later Miss
Anne Rudolph entered the
Jb or a moment the girl hesitated,
overcome, perhaps, by the unexpect
ed brilliancy of the scene. Then the
npirit of her "Rudolph'' ancestors as
serted ltsell, and to her, Uoanwalhs,
in full dinner-costume, surrounded by
his brilliant companions, represented
only the power that could save her
favorite from the butcher's knife.
"Well, my little girl, I am General
Cornwallis, ' said that gentleman
kindly. "What have you to say to
"I want my cow."
Profound silence reigned for a mo
ment; then came tumultuous bursts
of uproarous laughter from all the
gentlemen around the table. The
girls face reddened, but she held her
ground, and her set features and
flashing eyes convinced the general
that the child before him was one of
no ordinary spirit.
A lew words oi encouragement,
kindly spoken, quickly restored the
equanimity of the girl. Then, with
ready tact, the Ueneral soon drew
from her a concise narration of her
"Why did not your lather attend
to thi3 for you?" he asked.
"My father is not at home now."
"And you have no brothers for
such an errand, instead of coming
yourself into a British camp?"
"Both of mv brothers are away.
But, General Cornwallis," cried she
impatiently, "while you keep me here
talking, they will kill my cowl '
"So vour brothers also are away
from home. Now, tell me, child, where
can thev be found?"
"My oldest brother, Captain John
Rudolph, is with General Gates."
"And your other brother, where is
ho?" inquired the General.
"Captain Michael Rudolph's with
Harry .Lee.
The girl's eyes fairly blazed as she
spoke the name of gallant "Light
Horse Harrv Lee." Then she ex
claimed, "But, General, my cowl"
"Ah, hal one brother with .Gates
and one with Lee. Now," said the
General severely' "where is your fa
ther?" "He is with General Washington,"
frankly answered the little maiden;
"but he is a prisoner now."
"So, so. Fathers and brothers all
in the Continental Army! I think,
then, you must be a little rebel."
"Yes, sir if you please lam a lit
tle rebel. But I want mv cow!"
"Well, you are orave.
sraightforward little girl, and
you shall have your cow, and
something more, too." Then stoop
ing forward, he detached from his
garters a pair of brilliant , knee
buckles, which he laid in the child's
hands. . .Take these,'," he said, .'and
keep them as a souvenir of this in
terview, and believe that Lord Corn
wallis can appreciate courage and
truth even in a voung rebel." ,
Then, calling" an orderly, he in
structed him to go with the child
through the camp in search of the
cow, and when he should find the an
imal, to detail a man to see her home
again. So Miss Annie returned in
triumph with; her cow- And those,
sparkling knee-buckles are still treas

Cowboy ,and Spook.
This is hardly the season for ghost
stories, but one which reached the
eais of a reporter the other evening
may entertain those fond of spooklore.
The Leader can vouch for the relia
bility of all the persons mentioned,
except the ghost itself. The narrar
tive runs in this wise: V
Joe Healey, a rollicking cowboy
who rides the range for the Carlisle
Cattle Company, was engaged in
transferring a bunch of horses from
one ranch on the Sweetwater to an
other and passed the historical In
dependence rock after nightfall.
When near the noted landmark Joe
was nearly scared out of his wits and
his charges almost stampeded by the
appearance of a ghastly apparation
across the trail. The figure was that
of a man and white in color. The
outliues were clearly defined but the
cowboy is unable to describe the cos
tume of the unearthly tramp.
Jlealey, who is a quick-witted chap
of great nerve, hurried his horse to a
corral, about a mile distant, and re
turned to visit the uncannv thing.
The goblin damned, like the village
maiden, was over modest and kept
its distance. At times it floated rap
idly through the air and again lo-
comoted steady by ierks. as the
toad walks. Tho adventurous punch
er proposed to drive the ghost into
the horse herd and then rope it. He
was unsuccessful, however, but ex
hausted his mount and emptied his
six shooters m the attempt, and
what more could be required of an
honest cowboy?
As is usually the case the ghost
finally melted away, leaving the pur
suers completely mystified. Anoth
er cowboy met with a similar ad
venture in the , same locality last
year, and every range-rider in that
region swears by the Chicago market
that the place is"sure enough haunt

A Pike County Story.
The Paupack Creek, in Pike Coun
ty, Pennsyl vania , is the dwell iv g
place of a monster more wonderful
than the sea serpent, .if one -can be
lieve the stories told by people in iho
vicinity. They describa the beast as
having a head like an ape and squa e
shoulders like a human being. From
the shoulders of the creature there ex
tend legs arms, which terminate in
great claws. The body of the mon
ster, which is fully six feet in length,
is of a reddish brown tint, very like
that of a lizard, and terminates in a
tail like that of a fish. The creature's
body i3 bare of any covering, but
about the head and neck is a mane
of reddish hair. It is needless to say
that the county is excited over the
strange animals. Various parties
surround the creek each day in hopes
of capturing tbe beast, but up to the
present time their endeavors have
not been crowned with success.
Curious Ways of Bookkeeping.
The bakers herehave a rather orig
inal way of keeping accounts which
may be called a kind of bookkeeping
by double entry. When the carrier
delivers a loaf of bread, which, by the
way, is about five or six feet long, he
is hnndeda wooden lath about a loot
long by the party to wh om he deli vers
the bread. From a collection of laths
of the same size, one for each customer,
he picks out this particular customer's
one, and placing the two parallel, he
cuts a groove across the face ot both.
In the final adjustment of accounts
both laths have to have the same
number of notches. Cheap, but in
