Congress in 1500.
We find the following in the Columbus
Enquirer, a paper which has always given
honest credits, or else we should suspect
it was a sly ."Punch," from some sarcas
tic observer across the Atlantic :
July 5, 1890. Mr. D. Farcer, Dera.,
of Kentucky, brought forward & motion
for the suppression of oral discussion in
the Legislature. The bearable mem
ber proposed, as a substitute, that all
questions at issue should be settled by
single combat, bowie-knife or pistol.
Honorable members were, up to the pres
ent period, in the habit of sticking at no
thing, and he (Mr. farcer) thought that
this proposal would certainly obviate
such a state of. things by giving them
something to stick at.
Mr. Barker, (Dem.)of Virginia, sec
onded the motion, and also he -would be
happy to second any of the combatants
in want of his assistance. He beiievtd
his qualifications in this respect were
well known to the honorable House ; and
if any member was ignorant of them, he
would take the liberty of recapitulating.
The honorable member was here proceed
ing to give the details of several san
guinary difficulties, when he; was inter
rupted by " :
Mr. Whittle, (Whig) of Tenn. What
d.es the honorable member mean when
thrusting the details of his duels on the
House? Good wine needs no bush, and
a successful duelist needs no praise.
There was no danger of the honorable
member's deeds not being trumpeted to
the world, because everybody knows that
"murder will out.'.'
Mr. Barker You are a liar and a
thief ! (No sensation whatever.)
Mr. Whittle The honorable rascal
opposite has called me a liar and a thief.
I believe that the House will support me
when I term him a murder and as
sassin. (Less sensation than before.)
Mr. Barker Who robbed the man on
the steamboat? A-h-h!
Mr. Whittle Who ran away from the
Revere House without paying his bill ?
Mr. Barker (shaking his fist) Silver
Mr. Whittle I did not insure my
house for double its value and then set it
Mr. Barker If the honorable member
ain't a coward, he'll have it out with me
Mr. Whittle (jumping on the table)
Come on you ruffian.
The Speaker Fair play, gentlemen.
Recollect, if you please, that the pro
ceedings will be reported.
The honorable members then had a set
to, in which both displayed considerable
science, and a great deal of animosity.
Bets ran high as to , who would win. and
wn understand that the Snpnkpr snprnlat-
edheavilv. After five rounds, however.
Whittle gave in, and Barker was carried j
home bv his triumphant friends. We be-1
neve tnai a meeting between tne gen-5
tlemen is arranged to come off to-mor- j
row. This incident agreeably, relieve 1
the monotony of the week's debates, that
were growing exceedingly tedious. -
The sin was long since atoned for, and
at last the little spot of sunshine crept in
bis cell, and entering by the key-hole of
his door led him forth into the bright rays
of liberty. - He was conducted to the of
fice of the prison by McGaw, and a cit
izen's dress, in place of a prison suit
given him, and led into an inner room,
where stood she who, years before, had
promised before God to be hi3. What a
meeting!- . - r .
' On the evening train the two arrived
in this city, and were, by one of our di
vines, joined in marriage. We were" wit
nesses to the ceremony, and shall never
forget it. Never forget the eye moist
ened with happiness, nor the throbbing
of the heart that had so long waited and
trusted. Saved, saved! May the future
be all the brighter for the cloud that has
hung so long over it, and true friends
ever ready to lend a helping hand. We
believe in woman's love in woman's de
votion the more, afier knowing the facts
above .stated. God bless the true heart

Two Elopements In one Family the
In our last issue we noticed the fact that
a young couple from Fayette CoumyKy.,
arrived at the Burnet House, Tuesday
night and were married almost immedi
ately after, the young man being greatly
alarmed lest his father, who he once
thought he saw at a station on the rail
way between this city and Cynthiana,
was in close pursuit, and might arrive in
time to tear his betrothed from his arms.
The sequel to the story, which was de
veloped in a few hours later, is as fol
lows: While the young couple were receiving
the congratulations of those who had wit
nessed the ceremony at the Burnet, a sim
ilar tragedy, or comedy whichever the
reader pleases was being enacted at the
Spencer House. The young man had not
been mistaken when he thought he saw
his father on the road, for the old ras
cal, who, it seems, was m the same hu
mor with his son, had actually eloped
with a young widow in his neighborhood,
and came to this city on the same errind
and on the same train. They escaped re
cognition by taking, as it happened, dif
ferent cars, and stopping at difienent ho
tels. When the young man learned how
matters stood, accompanied by his bride,
he repaired to the Spencer House, and
sending his card up to the old gentleman,
who little suspected that his hopeful off
spring was in the city, much less mar
ried, he came down unattended, when the
following conversation took place.
. Old Gentleman "Well sir; what are
you doing here ?"
Young Gentleman "I learned last
evening that you were about to elope with
.widow , and have followed you to
the city to see if it could be possible you
could do such a thing."
0. G. "That's very considerate in
you, young man, (spoken somewhat tart
ly,) but is it any particular business of
yours what I do?"
y. Q. "O, no; but the example, the" j
not be false to my mother, to whom I
promised never to tell a lie."
"Child," said the robber, "art thou so
mindful of thy duty to thy mother at thy
years, and am I insensible at my age of
the duty I owe to God ? Give me thy
hand that I may swear repentance on it,"
He did so, and hi3 followers were struck
with the scene.
"You have been our leader b guilt,"
they said to the chief, "be the same in
the path of virtue," and taking the boy's
hand, they took the oath of repentance
on it. .
What a Little Sarin? ttIII do.
Fi?ure3 sometimes produce almost in
credible results. Thus, for instance, if
a young man,-on his twentieth birth-day,
will invest $100 in any stock paying ten
per cent, annually, and thereafter will
invest the same amount and the accumu
lation of interest, he will be worth when
he is thirty years old, SI, 753. when for
ty years old,SG,3C0, when fifty years old.
S1S.150. when sixty years oil, S4S.7C0.
How simple, then, is the plan by which
a youth of the present day can pass his
old age in comfort and luxury!. He has
only to regulate his expenses so as to
!-ave one hundred dollars from his income.
If the amount saved be large, then the
sum total will be increased in' propor
tion. Only think of it, that $500 saved
annually, and invested in ten per cent,
stock, will amount in forty years to $243,
500, SI, 000,000 invested in the same
way for ten years will amount to S2.
583,000, in twenty years to $6,746,000,
in thirty years to 817,384,623, in forty
years to $43,250,608. No wonder, then
that the Rothchilds have amassed such
didn't. Here ycu say ycu harn't teen at
the other door, there you say ycu haven't
been at this. You should Lj tshamtcL tl
yourself, sir. When you grow cptole

Just here Waller, who had heard t-5

Woman's Loie A Beautiful Incl-
Six years ago, says aMilwaukie paper
a young man just entering on life, under)
the lniluence of rum, committed a crime
against society, was tried in the city, con
victed, and sent to Waupun, where he
served out nis time bentnd tne prison
bars. Before his trial a fair girl had
promised to link fortunes with him, and
cruel was the blow to her. But she lov
ed him. All. through his six years did

woman's heart, she believed him innocent,
innocent, at least, before God : and like
the magnet, she held oa her steady way,
her heart ever pointing to the future.
Lon? were the years to him.: blow pas
sed the hours. Seconds were minutes.
minutes were hours, hours days, days
weeks, weeks months, months years, and
years were like ages." Every tolling of
the pnscn-bell struck . deep upon nis heart,
and everv sunset took' another thread
from the long skein. Nor were the hours
Ipss wearv to her. Hone, that blessed an
gel, sat by her day by day, and reposed
on her pillow by night, oorae mere were
who laughed at her holy love, who sneer
ed so meanly at her lover, a prisoner miles
away, llut little it mattered toner:
others might laugh she wept: others
might point to a man in prison garb, toil
ing away from morn till night, with but
one star to guide him on. She saw but
the honest soul that might be saved, or
lost,and, woman that she was, .nerved
herself to hear their jibe3 and jeers.
Blessed words came to him in his lone
ly cell, words of love, of kindness, and
stronger grew the heart of him who had
truly his better angel to watch ever his
unbroken fortune. Each word from her
lightened the hours as they slowly went
by, and larger grew the day on which
liberty was" to come. Men visited him
