The landlord of the Bluebell Inn of
Exton waa dozing In a corner of his
cafe one morning, moodily meditating
on the dullness of business and the ap
palling temperance of the natives, when
he was startled by a deep voice calling
"Walter, a pint of champagne!"
Mr. Peter Bowersox waa on his feet,
rubbing his eyes, and wondering If the
voice was a part of his dreams. Not
since he had started in business in that
too abstemious village had any one sur
prised him by such an order. He look
ed, expecting to find a bediamonded
traveler, who had strayed Into his Inn
for want of a bt'tter, but found himself
facing a small gray-bearded man, clad
in a snuff-colored suit. His hands were
red and knotted, he wore a shocking
bad hat, while his dusty and bulbous
shoes showed that he had not come In
town in a carriage.
Peter thought h must have heard
wrong until the order was repeated,
with the pleasing addition, "Make it
' Then Mr. Bowersox realized that he
was confronting a pleasant reality and
not a dream, and at once set down his
guest as a prince traveling In disguise.
It did not occur to him that princes sel
dom spoke with a pronounced Yankee
The wine was secured from Its fly
blown eminence behind the bar, where
It had served for many years as an
ornament. After It was duly opened,
tne stranger displayed his princely
character when he Invited the landlord
to share its contents.
The stranger smacked his Hps with
gusto over the vile decoction of goose
berries and alhocol, to the great delight
of the host, who was afraid the first
tiste of the beverage might be the
cause of a vlloent outbreak. It warm
ed his heart to meet with a customer
so easily pleased, for the natives of the
place were not very considerate of bis
feelings. He was a shrewd enough
Judge of human nature to know that
the stranger was there for a purpose,
so he waited respectfully to learn what
"It seemed to me, as I came along
that there was a great deal ot excite
ment going on in the town for such a
quiet place," began the man In the
snuff -colored suit. "What's up? Some
political matter on hand?" And he
looked. the landlord over keenly with
his sharp black eyes.
"No wonder they're flyln' round like
hens with their heads cut off. Ther"
hain't been such doln's, I guess, since
the town was started!" exclaimed
Peter, who dearly loved to retail gos
sip. "Ah!" And the stranger took ad
vantage of the other's enthusiasm to
drop the contents of his glass on the
"There was a murder committed up
to the big house. You might have
pased It on the way down. Got two
stun critters on the pillars on each
6lde of the big gaet."
'Yes I pawed it.'
"Ellison's wife, It seems, was walk
in' in the park t'other night 'bout 10
o'clock, and she never came back
alive. Was struck down right in the
path near the house. Just one blow
she never spoke again."
"Bless me, what a tragedy for a
quiet place like this."
"Ye may weel say so. The folks is
wild. It'll go hard, I'm afraid, with
the school teacher."
"What had he to do with It?" and
the little man seemed to prick up his
ears as If a point of interest to him
had been reached.
"Well, they think he done It and
everything points that way. Ye see,
the Ellison's have one child a daugh
ter." 1 "Ah," the little man pushed his glass
aside, drew himself closer to the table
and looked at Mr. Peter with such a
piercing expression that the good land
lord for a moment was speechless.
"Well, what about this daughter?
Why don't you go on, man?" exclaimed
Mr. Bowersox risked a swallow from
Ma glass to fortify himself, made a wry
face, and continued:
"The young gent what's been school
teacher here for the past five years
waa sweet on the young lady, and them
what knows says It was returned. Mrs
Ellison (Hard of It, and was mad
enough, though her husband never let
on to the young man that he knowed
what waa up. though, of course, he
couldn't help It. All the town knowed.
Well, young Barnett, which the same
was the school teacher's name, was
pTvadln' around the ' grounds that
night. He was seen to meet Mrs. El
lison by the watchman. Then; was
hard words between 'era, she accusin'
the young man of try In' to steal her
daughter away. Jest what happened
after that isn't known, but some time
a'ter that a cry was heard, and when
folks got on the scene they found
Mrs. Elnson dead, and near by Bar
nett cleanln' his hands on the grass."
The landlord was silent for A moment,
as If to give emphasis to his words.
Ha waa astonished at the cool way In
lltUt bad raoelvsd hla tralc racluL
"Well, that don't mean that the
young man was the murderer," said
"Oh, It don't eh? Well, most of us
in this here neighborhood thinks it
does. And do you know that he had
made arrangements to leave last night
sur'ptitious-like, as they say, and had
sent his trunk off, instructin' the man
what carried It not to let any one
kuow that the schoolmaster was goin'
to skip. All that looks bad."
"Hum! and the stranger for a mo
ment drummed on the table with his
stubby-red Angers. "The young man
is certainly in an unpleasant position.
What does he say what is his side
of the story?"
"Ob, he denies that he had anything
to do with the poor lady, though ac
knowledge' that they had words, and
that she ordered him off the grounds.
On the way out he heard this cry in
the night, and, runnin' back, found
her dead or dyin' on the ground."
"And what sort of a reputation does
he bear in this neighborhood?"
"Oh, fust rate as far as that goes,
though he never patronized me none,"
with rather a rueful tone in his voice.
"Right smart he seemed to be. But,
ye we, the mother alius was against
him. Hadn't been for her he might
have got the gal. Ellison, ye see, was
friendly like to the last."
"Well, from what you tell me I feel
sure the young man had nothing to do
with the crime," said the stranger, de
cidedly." Perhaps it is the work of
some miscreant who took advantage
of his being in the grounds that night
to kill her. I never heard of a young
man taking such a step because his
mother happened to oppose his suit.
It is not common sense. Well, I must
be going," and he rose and laid a
piece of money on the table. "Oh never
mind the change," as the landlord was
counting It out "It was worth some
thing extra to hear such a dramatic
"I hope you will come again, sir."
"You might see me this evening, but
I can't tell. I suppose you could put
me up for a day or two."
"There's one room I think might be
vacant tonight." then to himself. "And
seven others if you wanted them."
"Very well, here's a dollar to hold
a room for me. If I'm not here by 8
o'clock you can rent It," and he tossed
a silver dollar on the table.
"You can find your way back here,
I hope, sir." as the stranger was Hear
ing the door.
"Not the least doubt of it." Then as
if a sudden thought struck him:
"Where do you suppose they have
held this unfortunate young man
village jail?" ' '
"There ain't 6uch a thing. Had one
once, hut as it lay empty for years It
was rented to a feller what raises hens,
t think Barnett is kep' in the con
stable's house little gray stone cot
tage near the meetln'."
"Thank you good day," and the lit
tle man disappeared through the door
way. Mr. Bowersox followed .his guest
outdoors and watched him go down
the road at a swinging gait until he
disappeared from view.
"If I was to make a rough guess I
sh'ud say that was one of the young
man's folks, but If he is he took the
young feller's perdlcament mighty
cam like. Well, what does It matter
to me anyway? I wish I had a hun
dred like him, that's all, 'and he went
hack to his doze by the bar to dream
of the prosperity that would come to
him if his customers were all like the
man In the snuffy brown suit. Mean
while the object of his complimentary
thoughts was swinging along at a
brisk pace. Though small, in walking
his great strength of muscle was mani
fest. There was nothing light or
graceful In his movements, but he
strode on with the clumsy power of a
bull. "You landed here at the right
moment," was the thought running
through his mind as ha made his way
along, keeping a furtive outlook for
"If this chap is worthy of the girl
he shall have her, but first we must
see about getlng him frte. He cer
tainly succeeded in placing himself In
a nice corner, but if she loves him we
shall get him out of It." .
He stopped outside to allow a car
riage to pass, a handsome turnout with
gold-mounted harness and sumptuous
fittings. A rather handsome military
looking man with a gray moustache
lolled back on the cushions. , He was
dressed with quiet elegance and puffed
lazily on his cigar.
The little man eyed him for a mo
ment searchlngly, and then gave vent
to a hoarse laugh, which the man In
the carriage must hare heard If the
swift horses had not by that time car
ried him out of earshot. The little
man, after looking at the vehicle for
a moment, shook his head and passed
on his way.
"Bears bis years well, hang him!"
he muttered., "And thus Is virtue re
warded," and he laughed again. "How
glad he will be to see me. I have a
lavor to asa, ana I don't think he will
refuse to grant It" He, had o trou
ble In finding the place ho wanted,
for around the little building waa a
group of the townspeople talking ex
citedly. The center of the gathering
waa a very sioui man in a special of
uniform of dark blue, much raded aasl
who seemed to be the center of In
terest "What you folks a blamin' me for?"
he was expostulating us the little man
In brown drew near. "I bad to do my

It ain't often as justice makes a mis
take. But don't you alls be too all
flred sure that he is Innercent," wag
ging his grotesque head sagely. The
town sympathies were evidently with
the young man, and the village con
stable was the object of unkind re
marks. The subject of the discussion was
just at this time reading in the room
that had been allotted to him as a cell.
It was comfortably furnished, and but
for the fact that he was a prisoner he

of Grace, but not a word had come to
him since that awful night. She was
prostrated when the intelligence of his
arrest reached her. Since then he had
heard nothing. The voices wrangling
in front of the house drew him to the
window, which was only lightly barred
with wood. He hoped that he might
catch some of the conversation, and
learn perhaps what was being said of
As he stood there in an attitude of
attention he suddenly heard a loud
"Hist!" that seemed to come from a
point very near at hand.

ITALY'S POPTLAB POET.
young Daughter of a Factory Opera
tive Has Risen to High Fame.
Rome Correspondence Chicago Record-Herald:
The favorite poet of the
Italians Is Ada Negri, a young woman
who has suddenly sprung into fame by
the passionate flre of her verses and
their simple, strong, true, democratic
sentiment Although she was first
heard of in 1892, her works now have
a larger sale than those of any other
author In Italy, and she is better known
to the common people than any other.
She has publislfed two volumes. The
first, which included 250 pages of lyrics,
passed through six editions very rapid
ly, and every line of Its contents has
again and again been copied in the
newspapers. The second volume ap
peared in 1896, and had even a larger
sale, appealing to a higher class of
readers because its contents'were more
mature and showed a higher literary
polish without detriment to their qual
ity. Miss Negri has a third volume in
press, which will appear shortly, and
it is awaited with great curisolty, be
cause since the second volume was pub
lished her circumstances and surround
ings have been entirely changed and she
has been translated from poverty to
wealth ajid from the privations of a
garret to the luxuries of a palace at
Ada Negri, was born Feb. 3, 1870, in a
a little village near Milan, where her
father and mother were factory opera
tlves. Her father died when she was a
mere child and her mother led a miser
able life of labor and sacrifices in order
to secure an education for her child. In
1888, when she was 18, the girl obtained
a situation as teacher in the village
school, and took her mother out of the
factory. They lived in the humblest
quarters in two little rooms at the top
of a tenement house, but managed to
survive and were comparatively, happy
on wages of $8 per month. A poem
entitled "The Working Mother," which
has appeared again and again in every
newspaper in Italy, most frequently in
those which are read by the working
classes, and thus had become as fam
iliar to the Italian people as Longfel
low's "Psalm of Life" is to us, is sup
posed to be an epitome of her career
and a revelation of the feelings of a
woman In her circumstances. It de
scribed the struggles of a mother who is
working to educate, a son, and every
body who knows the story of Ada Ne
gri's life recognizes the personal qual
ity. In 1892 the girl went to Milan for a
brief visit to arrange for the publica
tion of her poems in book form, leav
ing her native village for the first time,
and there saw luxury, beauty and art,
which was a revelation beyond her
dreams. The few books she had found
in the village library had not prepared
her for the splendor of the cathedral,
the buildings of the business section
and the shaded palaces of the outer
streets, and, although she did not cross
a threshold, Iser imagination was ex
cited and her ambition received a new
Impulse, when after two days of de
light she returned to her garret and
wooden shoes. From this moment her
poems took on a new color. They be
came brighter and more vivacious, with
less melancholy, as if a few rays of sun
shine had been admitted to her soul.
Marriage and Divorce Up to Date.
New York World: A well known
New York woman, divorced from her
husband in South Dakota seven months
ago, has just married again In Indiana.
Her former husband married, imme
diately after the divorce was granted, a
woman whom ho had "learned to love"
during his wife's temporary absence
from home, and who was divorced in
order to marry him. Likewise the man
whom the first wife has Just married
out Went was divorced from his wife,
by whom he had three children, that he
might marry his new "affinity."
To add to the complications of these
triple divorces and remarriages, they
would not be legal if contracted in the
state where the partlea originally lived.
It only remains for the one deserted
and unconsoled husband In this state
to marry the abandoned wife out West
to complete the serio-comic complexi
ties and compensations of this medley
of marriage and divorce up to date.
Will any of these wealthy and highly
respectable persons be ostrlclspd by so
cietythe remedy suggested by a wor
thy bishop for the divorce evil? Prece
dent does not seem to threaten It. Will
this playing fast and loose with sacra
ments and contracts and domestic ties
hasten the passage of a constitutional
amendment authorizing a national di
vorce law? It ought to.
