It will not swerve. It will not stay

A MISER THE CAUSE.
Ir. C. B. Barrett, formerly Chiei
Inspector of the United States Secret
service, had a queer experience some
time ago in a beautiful little town
tray down in Maryland. Mr. Bar
rett's long experience with this sort
of work has taught him just how to
dig a pit for his game, as the
train neared the village he walked
through the smoker to the mail car,
asked for the mail clerk, showed his
commission and said he had some
thing which he wanted done.
"What is it?" asked the clerk
nervously, eying the Chief Inspec
tor. "Where is the mail pouch ou
throw off at the next stop?"
It was produced.
, "Open it."
It was opened, for an inspector
has absolute authority, not only
over mail clerks, but over the post
masters of the larger cities.
Here is a letter," said Mr. Barrett,
"addressed to James Lancaster,
a ficticious name. The letter con
tains a 10 bill. I want you to ex
amine it, take the address, put it in
that pouch and lock it with your
All this was done, and Mr. Barrett
went back to his seat in one of the
day coaches, confident that the next
move in the game would answer his
The Secret Service agent stood
upon the platform of the mail car
when the train stopped and the
pouch was thrown off, when he at
once stepped to the platform. A boy,
whose business it was to carry the
mail, took the pouch over his shoul
er and started up the village street,
never dreaming that a Chief Inspec
tor of the Postal Service was follow
ing him on the other side of the
street and was watching him like a
hawk, while seeming to watch noth
ing. It was a beautiful June day,
the birds were singing, and although
it was h;gh noon the leafy ,lotty trees
lining the quiet street cast such deep,
cool shadows that Mr. Barrett did
not find walking unpleasant. For
about a quarter of a mile the boy
kept on, followed by the Inspector,
nnd then turned into a small frame
building, with a white and black sign
over the door labelled "Postoffice."
"Now," said Mr. Barrett, inward
ly, "my letter has reached its desti
nation." There was a cr owd of visitors in
side of the little Post-office and out
side who swarmed towards the desk
"to get their mail," and Mr. Barrett
waited some fifteen minutes until
they had all gOne before he entered
the place, and saw a handsome girl,
about seventeen years old, dressed
in an old-fashioned bodice and light
colored skirt, sitting behind the wire
grating in a rocking chair sewing.
"Is there a letter here for James
Lancaster?" said the Inspector, and
every one who knows his face and
ngure will not wonder that the girl
took him for a
to do country
"No," she said, after sorting some
letters in a case marked "L."
"Won't you look again?" and she
did look, but with no better result.
"I am sure the letter must have
come," said Mr. Barrett, and I, who
know him well, can imagine how
gently h.i said it.
"It's not here."
( "Are you the Postmaster?"
"No. I am the assistant. My
father is the Postmaster."
"Who opened the pouch that came
bo the last train?"
"No one to help you?"
: "No, sir."
The girl's bright eyes looked as
Innocently at Mr. Barrett as any
girl's bright eyes ever looked at any
"Maybe it stuck in the pouch. I've
heard of such things," he said.
"Won't you look?"
cne took me poucn, turned it up-
eiae down, snooic it ana looked inside.
"Won't you let me come in and
help you look for it?" said Mr. Bar
"No. No one is allowed in here."

and a gate in the end of this parti
tion. toward which the Postmaster's
daughter went, but Mr. Brrett
thought she moved very slowly. At
last she turned the key in the lock,
opened the solid gate and admitted
the Inspector. He walked forwan
a few feet and looked around.
There was nothing in sisrht but
bare deal shelves and the letter box
es, and he knew his mission was not
"I mailed a. letter myself to James
Lancaster," he p;i id at last. "That
is n licliruruy nnrne, 'Lancaster' be
ing my mother's maiden name. Tha
letter.. was put irt tb-'tt por-Ii in in;
presence. When that pouch was put
olf at the station I followed it and
kept it in sight until it was taken in
to the Postoffice. Now you say you
opened it' alone, that no one else
touched it. Where is my letter?"
"I never saw it, sir. If you doubt
me you can search me."
Mr. Barrett said that he would not
do that, and that he had -never done
such a thing to a woman, and he be
gan to pace the floor in deep thought.
The girl, more beautiful than ever in
her excitement, sat down in the rock
ing chair, crcssed her limbs and be
gan to rock.
"Call your mother, and she .can
search you in my presence," said" he
"My mother is dead."
Again the Secret Service agent
paced the floor. He looked into an
adjoining room, brightly and neatly
furnished, and wondered whether the
girl could have secreted the letter
there while she pretended to be going
to the gate to let him in. As he paced
back and forth he noticed the swing
ing feet of the Postmaster's daughter,
that one of her stockings had sagged
down, and that under that stocking
was the shape of an envelope.
"Your stocking has dropped," he
The girl turned scarlet and white,
and stopped rocking. She caught
her breath, as if to faint.
"Now, give me my letter," said the
She took it from its. hiding place,
handed it to him and burst, into a
flood of passionate tears.
The decoy letter, as is usual in
cases .of this sort, had been fixed so
that it would be apparent to any ore
that money was enclosed. It had
done its work.
"W nereis your father?" asked Mr.
"In the garden," sobbed the girl.
Mr. Barrett wrent out into the
garden, found the bid man hoeing
and brought him in, and when he
was told all he bowed his white head
and sobbed with his child. The in
spector learned that the girl had ad
mirers, as was natural; that her
father was very miserly, not giving
her even the money needed for a
bright bit of ribbon, a new hat or a
new dress; that she had been tempted
to take money from the mails for
bits of finery, and had done so. Mr.
Barrett bitterly accused the old man
of being the one to blame, and he ac
"I suppose you will arrest her?"
said the girl's father."
"Will you make restitution of the
sum (it was about $10), she has
taken on account of your miserli
ness?" "Yes; here it is," and it was handed
over. "Will you arrest her?"
"If I did what would be her future?
No. Unless you or she tells this it
will never be known in the village."
Inspector Barrett left after forcing
the old man to promise his daughter
should never be compelled or allowed
to handle the mails again, and when
he submitted his full report to the
head of the department at Washing
ton his course was fully approved.
Patti and the Burglar.
It is said that shortly before Mme.
Patti left Wales for her South Ameri
can tour had a thrilling experience
with a burglar. The songstress was
alone in her chamber preparing 1 o
retire for the night, when she heard a
sound in an adjoining room, as if
someone were movine: about. Patti
hastily donned a wrapper, a nd walked
boldly into the room from which the
sounds came, and stood face to face
with a gigantic burglar. He wore a
mask to conceal his features, and in
his hand he carried a heavy club.
The plucky woman asked him what
he was doing there. .
"Don't you see," he replied in a
broad Welsh dialect, "I am stealing
And he held up to her astonished
eyes the most beautiful bracelet which
she possessed. Patti did not scream.
bhe simply walked across the room,
pressed an electric button to summon
the servant. Instead of the servant,
lowever, Signor rucolim appeared
on the scene. The burglar attempted
to strike him with his club, but his
:ame was frustrated by Patti. She
rrasped the club as it was raised in
the air. Nicolini and the burglar
then clinched, and in the struggle
that ensued the enterprising but al
together too candid thief was pitched
out of a second story window. He
descended gracefully and broke a leg.
He was found to be a peasant whom
Patti had frequently befriended.

A Fight With a Bull.
A. L. Smith, who lives about three
miles from town on the Athens road,
iiad a serious encounter with a Jersey
bull a short time ago. Mr. Smith
was walking through his pasture
when the bull made a dash at him,
knocking him down, and when he
irose the bull downed him again.
This time, however, Mr. Smith suc
jeeded in getting up, when he jumped
a fence that was close by and thus
escaped from the enraged animal.
Mr. Smith examined himself and
found that he had received a broken
finger and several bruises in the en
counter. He then seized a fence rail
and jumped the fence, when the bull
made another wild rush at him, but
with a well aimad blow he felled the
animal to the ground and belabored
h m to such an extent that . when he
arose, Mr; Smith says, he was com
pletely conquered. The bruises which
Mr. Smith received in the encouuter
are fast healing, and he is receiving
the congratulations of his manv
friends as the . champion "bull
fighter" of this section.
The commander in-chief of the Aus
trian army is the wealthiest man in

while on a tour of inspection in
Hungary, he spent 48 hours in a

H?nttd to him amounted to $767.
It was paid without a murmur, but
the next day the officers of the rrar-
rison received strict orders not to set

Amusing Effects of Pre med
A familiar form of premeditated
pause is often used by badgering coun
sel who are wont to pause after each
word of a question, to give the witness
an idea that it is of great importance;
but this rule is not always effective,
as the following anecdote will show.
Counsel: "Now what did you do
when as you say the prisoner
threw a beer glass at you?"
Witness (promptly) : "I dodged."
Some time ago a joke turning upon
a premeditated pause appeared in one
of the comie papers. The scene is a
court-room, and the judge, addressing
the prisoner, says: "I fear you are a
great rogue." With amazing coolness
the prisoner . says:
a fool. mv lord,
here followed a lengthy and evidently
premeditated pause "take me to
be." This manufactured anecdote was
doubtless suggested by the speech
made by Lord George Sack ville during
hi3 trial. The words used by his lord
ship were: "I stand here as a prison
er unfortunately that gentleman"
indicating the judge "sits there as my
judge." -The result of the non-observance
of the pause after 'unfortunate
ly" was that Lord George was accus
ed of contempt of court.
Lord Erskine was in the habit of
making a very effective pause in all
letters applying to solicitations for
subscriptions. He wrote: "Sir: I
feel much honored by your applica
tion to me, and I beer to "subscribe"
here the reader had to turn over the
leaf "myself your very obedient ser
One of. the best instances of this
form of pause occurred in a letter re
ceived by a popular physician". . This
gentleman was pleased with a certain
aerated water.and by his recommenda
tions, he managed to procure for it
some celebrity. For this he expected
neither reward nor thanks. Imagine
his surprise, therefore, when he receiv
ed one day from the makers of the
lerated water an effusive letter, stat
ing that his kind recommendations
had done so much good that they ven
tured to send him 100 Here the page
turned over. "This will never do,"
said the doctor; "it is very kind, but
I will never think of accepting any
thins." Here he turned the page and
found the sentence ran: "Of our cir
culars for distribution."
It is always advisable to hear the
end of a sentence. A literary for
instance, once said "to one of
his 'ady friends: "Will you accept my
hand ", Gushing maiden "Why, er
so sudden so unexpected." Liter
ary man (proceeding unmoved)

most as bright as ." She (expect

NOTED ENGLISH MISERS.
The Privations They Endured
Rather Than Spend Money.
When Sir liervey Elwes died his
enormous fortune went to his nephew,
John. The young- man was a miser of
the very worst kind, and was even
threatened with arrest for allowing
his aged mother to die in his house of
starvation. It is said that John inher
ited the fortune on account of his ultra
economy. He stayed wHh Sir Hervey
during that miser's lifetime, and the
way the young man economized iu fuel
won the old man's regard. A few
sticks sufficed to boil the kettle and
prepare the miserable meal, and when
it was very cold the couple would visit
friends and get warm at other people's
expense. In winter they went to bed
at 5, in summer at 8. 'J hey never
spent any. money on illumination,
crawlitrg hungry and cold to bed
directly it got dark. After John suc
ceeded to the estates he took to gam
bling, and occasionally lost a fair
sized fortune, but be stinted himself all
the time, and when on a journey rode
on horseb;ick and slept under hedges
and haystacks. He owned over t wenty
houses in London, and wheu in the
city slept on the floor of any of them
that happened to bo vacant.
Eiwes was nominated , for Parlia
ment and succeeded in being elected
at tha expenje of the government.
To the disgust of the aristocratic
legislators with whom he associated,
he ignored the custom of the times
and was too mean even to buv and
wear a wig. Once he was run over
nd had both les injured. A local
apothecary was called on to dress one
leg. but . the millionaire dressed the
other himself; and refused to pay the
doctor because the latter leg healed
first. Finding his' annual expenses
over $500 a year, including pay to his
servants and horse feed, he resolved
on further measures of economy sold
his sheets and slept between the
blankets. In 1789 the life of privation
and hardship began to tell ou the
miserable man and his memory began
to fail him. Ho refused to hire any
help, assuring his friends that he was
a penniless old man, and even went so
far as to extract a promise from them
that he should be buried as a parish
pauper. The promise gave him much
ease aod he died iu apparent comfort.
Despite his gambling losses, his execu
tors had nearly $1,000,000 to distri
bute. To one John Ward, of Hackney, be
longs the credit, if such it be, of having
enough of the Spartan in him to suffer
imprisonment for paltry debts while
in possession of thousands. He would
allow himself to be arrested and would
then gradually wear out the patience
and pocket3 of the creditors. Some
times he would be released on the peti
tion of the creditor, who would be con
vinced against his better reason of the
inability of Ward to pay: at others, the
deadbeat would succeed in getting a
small compromise accepted, lie was
twice elected to Parlaiment, but seldom
attended at Westminster, his chief rec
reation being dog poisoning and pray
ing, tie delighted in giving slow
poison to dogs and watching their life
ebb out For hours every day he
would pray , out loud and was often
overheard to petition the Ruler of all
things to save certain counties from
earthquake and drouth because he had
mortgages on estates m them. He also
reminded the.. Almiphty that he had
purchased the reversion to an estate and
that the only life that intervened was
a young and profane spendthrift. Ward
died worth about $1,5004)00.

By a law of William and Mary, pass
ed in 1690, every householder who re-
sided in certain parishes, or in the

joined or was near the street, "from

out candles or liarhts in lan thorns on

Preamble and Resolutions of Saunders
Whereas, The people of the state of
Nebraska have been unbearably bur
dened, witn extortionate rates ; exacted
by the various railroad companies do
ing business in the state, and
Whereas, The people have made nu
merous appeals to the Legislature assem
bled for relief, and
Whereas, A law creating a board of
commissioners to regulate and prevent
the unjust and burdensome taxation
was after a tedious struggle placed upon
our statute book, and
Whereas, The courts, by their decis-
sions have given undoubted powers to
the said commissioners, and yet we find
that, after a number of years have
elapsed we have comparatively received
no relief, thus proving the said commis
sion recreant to its trust; and,
Whereas, The said commission has
now placed itself in the attitude of sup
plicants before the railroad companies
instead of executors of the law of the
Soverign State. Therefore be it
fie&o vsd, By the Saunders Co. Alliance
that we look with contempt upon the
actions of the commission, inasmuch as
they are heaping insults on too long borne
injury, by thus presuming on the igno
rance of the thousands of toilers of the
state; and be it further
Resolved, That we heartily endorse the
attitude and sentiments of Attorney
General Leese in the matter of railroad
transportation in this state, and com
mend his action in calling the attention
of the United States Attorney General
Miller to the palpable frauds perpetrated
upon the Government by the Union Pa
cific railroad company. .
