Oh Bum, What Hast Them Done 2
Mr. and Mrs. Phrye are a young
couple, -with good prospects and a snug
home. The only indication of a sliadow
on their hearth has been a growing
habit of drink on the part of Mr. Phrye.
Tliis has been the cause of many heart
aches to Mrs. Phrye, and much uneasi
ness to the friends of the couple. At
first Mr. Phrye could not be brought to
realize the power liquor was obtaining
over him, but upon the earnest and con
tinued persnasion of his wife he finally
promised to abstain from the use of all
intoxicating liquors. Itwasat this happy
time that the West street church gave
an entertainment. It was a social
gathering and was largely attended.
Mr. and Mra. Phrye with several neigh
bors went. Mr. Phrye sent his wife
ahead with her friends, while he went to
the barber shop, and was to rejoin them
after his shave. With thisuudeatanding
Mrs. Plirye started, first reminding him
in a whisper of his promise, and implor
ing him not to go off with that Joe
GooYlson. Mr. Phrye pressed her hand
in deep affection and faith, and went to
the barber shop. From the barber's
hands he went directly to the church,
and took a seat with his party. Upon
seating himself he leaned over to the
lady on his left to make some remark
when he was startled by the expression
of her face, the stare gave him, and the
observation she emitted which was,
" Oh 1" He instinctively turned to his
wife for an explanation, and was struck
dumb by the look of horror on that
lady's face, " Oh, George !" the ex
claimed, and her lips trembled. "What
on earth ia the matter?" he whispered.
" I never expected it of you," she re
plied by way of explanation, at the same
hiding her face in her haudkerchief to
smother a sob. "And at church, too,"
naid the other lady, reaching for her
handkerchief. 'It seems as if my
heart will break," sobbed Mrs. Phrye,
in further explanation of the trouble.
"I was afraid it would come to this,"
said the other lady with soma degres of
confidence. " O, dear," sobbed Mrs.
Phrye. Poor Mr. Phrye! At every
outburst he would turn to the one mak
ing it and stare in blank amazement.
" Maria," ho finally gasped, but still in
a whisper, for fear of the ears of the
audience, "what in the name of heaven
has got into you and Mrs. Ferguson ?
What have I done?" Mrs. Plirye
sobbed, and Mrs. Ferguson groaned.
"Good heaven! am I out of my rea
son ?" demanded the alllietcd man,
staring at the ceiling, and confining his
voice to the apparent detriment of his
chest. Another sob and groan, with a
feeblo intimation from Mrs. Phrye that
death would be a welcome guest to her.
Mr. Phrye looked about for something
with which to destroy his life, but not
succeeding in finding it, relapsed into a
fever heat and increased perspiration.
"I would have rather met your cold
corpse," explained Mrs. Phrye, in a
broken voice, " than to see you in such
a state." "What state?" howled the
miserable- man. " Yes, indeed," sobbed
Mrs. Ferguson, and having discharged
a sacred duty with this remark she dis
appeared behind her handkerchief.
" What state?" again howled Mr. Phrye.
" In such a state of liquor. O, heaven !
O, dear !" sighed Mrs. Phrye. At this
charge Mr. l'liryc raised himself nearly
fivo inches from his chair. "Maria,
what do mean ?" he demanded, ' What
ilojoii moan, you had better ask?" re
plied the wretched woman. " I haven't
drank a drop, so help mo " " Oh,
hear tho perjurer !" cried Mrs. Fergu
son, in a whisper of horror. " I am no
perjurer," protested Mr. Phrye; "I
hain't drank a dropjof liquor tliis day."
Both ladies ap2earcd from behind their
handkerchiefs and appeared to be very
much impressed by his earnestness.
"Uut you smell dreadfully of mm,"
faltered his wife. "Well, there ain't
been no rum near me," ho asserted,
" unless," and his face suddenly light
ed "unless it is bay rum at the bar
ber's." "Oh, that's it, that's it,"
shouted both of tho delighted ladies in
chorus. "How could I have been so
unjust?" said the happy Mrs. rhrye,
squeezing his arm. "I thought all
along it oouldn t be possible that Phrye

And t-o tho
threatening clouds broke away and tho
cheerful sunshine came in like a Hood
upon the little party, and when Mr.
Phrye was undergoing his next shave
and the barber reached for the bay rum,
he just waved his hand, and said, "Not
by a dam's height, Mr. French." And
no nioro bay rum does Mr. Phyrc use,
and the live cents thus saved is relig
iously devoted to the heathen. Dan

A Great Flower Garden.
You havo heard of oid bachelors'
whims. There are lots of them on rec
ord, but Henrv Shaw, of St. Louis, has
given practical execution to the most re
markable bachelor's crotchet of the age
He is a Scotchman, a millionaire, and
some 75 years old. He has constructed
the finest llowcr garden in the world. It
has ;J50 acres in it, and is a gorgeous
marvel of a garden. " It has all the
flowers in it obtainable in the world,
that will livo in St. Louit climate. It
is a bewildering paradise of fioral
beauty. The ilowers number by the
millions. Its cost no one can tell.
Shaw himself don't know. It is thread
ed by walks, and adorned with conserva
tories and hot-houses full of the rarest
exotics. A force of 100 gardeners is
needed to keep tho place in order.
Shaw, it is said, spends his entire in
come from his millions in keeping it up.
He began the thing after the war, and
for several years ho has opened it to the
public. Hundreds of thousands of visit
ors resort to it. It is the chief attrac
tion and curiosity for the stranger in
St. Louis to visit. And, strange to say,
no police guard it, and no flowers are
pilfered. This is tho public reverence
to the man s generous enterprise,
e visited the
elegant house at the
head of the garden, where an elegant
picture represents him standing among
his Ilowers. Two elegant portraits of
beautiful ladies in the garb of a past
day, represent some of his female pro
genitors. A huge book is kept there
for visitors to record their names in. A
curious feature of the garden is beds de
voted to one flower. For instance,
there is a largo bed with every variety
of cactus ; another with hundreds of
verbenas, and so ou. Everything is in
a prodigal profusion. It is a curious
notion this, that prompts a rich man to
devote a great income to one pet ca
price, and that principally for the bene
fit of others. But in this very caprice,
so unusual and so expensive, is wrapped
up his own personal aspiration. He
thus makes his celebrity. And why
should a man not strive to become
known through his mammoth gardens,
as well as through his statesmanship or
achievements of arms or genius ?
Shaw is near his grave. Ho has, in
pursuance of his ambition, willed his
gardens to tho city, on condition that
tho city binds itself to keep them up.
Tho city has eagerly accepted the be
quest, and thus, through private liber
ality, gets, without cost, a public gar
den not surpassed in tho world for mag
nificenco and beauty. Tho garden will
forever bo dubbed " Shaw's Garden,"
and ho thus travels on to immortality on
the successful realization of his stupen
dous and most beautiful crotchet. At
The inquiry is often made of us by
farmers, brewers, beef and pork pack
ers, etc, regarding the best method of
deodorizing and cleansing old cider and
beer barrels, musty cans, bottles, etc.
Chemistry furnishes an agent in the
permanganate potassa which fully meets
this want. A plat of the permanganate
turned into the most musty, filthy cider
or beer cask, and rinsed about a few
moments, will entirely decompose all
fungoid growths and fermenting matter,
and render the cask as sweet as those
that are new. The deodorizing, disin
fecting )K)wer of tho permanganate,
holding ns it does five equivalents of oxy
gen, is wonderful ; it will even deodor
ize earbolie acid. The only way to re
move immediately tho odor of enrtolie
acid from the hands, is to immerse them
in the liquid permanganate. Jiohton

A Doubting Danghtcr.
There is n yoimg lady in this city who
is having more than hex share of trouble
erhaps, because she is having more
than her share of beaux. A day or two
ago one of her admirers called to spend
the eveniug. Shortly after the young
folks got nicely located, the girl's mother
dropped into the parlor and soon fell to
telling a long yarn. She sat directly in
front of the yonng couple and the
daughter dicovered that her mother's
dress was open in front, and imme
diately inaugurated a series of winks
and motions in hopes of attracting the
old lady'a attention to the fact. But
the mother thought the daughter' was
doubting her story, and said : " Yon
may wink as much" as yon please, but
eveiy wo:d is true." The daughter

story. Sioux City Journal.
"Gath" writes: "Washington had
to set tho lesson of a President's mes
sage. His inaugural could be commit

scholar in one day, and is a feeling ex

the voice of my country.' Piety, Ad
disonian composition, and z declination
of salary are the main points ia it. The
President's first regular message, dated
January 8,1790, is equally concise, and
shows the growing confidence and credit
of the country ; declares that ' to be
prepared for war is the means of pre
serving tho peace ; and urges that
' notliing s more worthy the patronage
of Congress than the promotion of
science and literature.' The early mes
sages are addressed alternately to the
House and Senate, after the manner of
the Queen's address to Parliament. The

for the national business was thicken

and the organization of public institu

space with the contents it must treat
of ; speaks mainly of Indian wars and
treaties, the development of the inte
rior, the new Capitol, the currency, and
weights and measures. The fourth
message treats of disorders, intestine
and foreign, and is followed by a proc
lamation of neutrality. The fifth and
sixth continue tho same. The seventh
is cheerful and congratulatory, and
short. The eighth is the message of
the conscious and thoughtful rukr of a

Ivriekbaum read somewhere that Dio
Lewis advised men with a tendency to
become bald to have holes punched in
the top of their hats. And so when
Ivriekbaum purchased his new winter
hat he had a small sheet-iron plate per
forated with large holes and set in the
crown. That was on Tuesday. On
Wednesday Mrs. Ivriekbaum got a new
hired girl, who saw the hat on the chair
in the dining-room, and imagining it to
be a patent colander of some new kind,
she removed it to tho kitchen. When
Mrs. Ivriekbaum came down stairs at
noon to see how dinner was getting on,
she found the girl straining boiled cab
bage through the sheet-iron ventilator
in Ivrickbauni's high hat, and swearing
in the Ballybuhdeen dialect becauso the
holes were so big and the colander so
limber. That night when Ivriekbaum
wanted to start for the lodge he began
to hunt for his hat, while Mrs. Ivriek
baum sat still and trembling. But
when ho became exasperated and com
menced to pick up the chairs and jam
them down hard so as to relievo his
feelings, she began to cry, and relieved
the horrible truth to him. It may have
been done in quicker time, but we doubt
it. We say that there may have been
in former ages some hired girl who
packed her trunk and pelted down-stairs,
and was hustled into the street quicker
than Mrs. Ivrickbauni's hired girl when
Ivriekbaum began to expostulate witli
her, but the fact has not been proved.
He wears an imperforated hat now, and
will probably bo entirely bald by New
It is not impossible that the present
troubles under which tho Spanish Re
public labors will eventuate in the wiping
out of that nationality. The event is
not at all a novelty. Poland once men
aced and almost conquered Russia.
Prussia was once only one of a coterie
of German States ; Portugal was once
mistress of the seas; Holland once ruled
tho ocean ; Venice was once the greatest
power in the world. We need not go
back to the times of Egyptian, Jndean,
Assyrian, Grecian or Roman power to
learn of tho growth and decadence of
nations. The New Zealander on the
ruins of London is not an impossibility.
Spain is more tho "sick man" in Europo
than ever Turkey was. Before this gen
eration shall i)as8 away this Government
will control the islands of Cuba and
Porto Rico, England will hold the Phil
lipine islands, Italy and Germany will
have the Spanish possessions in the
Mediterranean, and the territory of
Spain itself will be divided between
France, Italy and Portugal. This is no
prophecy, but simply a statement of
fact that current events foreshadow.
A Reminiscence of Gov. Allen.
A friend informs us that when ho was
a boy at college he had a room-mate
from the State of Ohio. He was fond
of speaking of the celebrities of his na
tive State, and Senator Allen was one of
the chosen heroes. He related to our
friend tho following incident, which
may prove interesting at this day. The
Senator was addressing a large audience
in the native town of our informant.
When about half through his speech,
after making some positive assertion, a
stentorian voice cried out,
"That's a lie, sir!"
The Senator paused a moment, and
" What is your name, sir !"
The answer was given,
" Mv name is Vass."
The Senator responded,
" I move the V be stricken from that
man's name. All you in favor of it, say
And a hundred voices cried out,
"Now," said the Senator, "you are
voted an ass."

Mr. Allen Ferguson, of Amsterdam,

delighted to see her boy; and to pro
mote his pleasure, and to gratify that
inordinate social feature of Tuckahoe
character yrt glowing in her own heart,
determined to give him a party, which
she did by inviting seven of Allen's
schoolmates to dine. OJ the eight
schoolboys thus brought together, Allen
was the youngest, the other seven rang
ing from 75 to S5 years. Among other
topics discussed at the'dinner-tablo.that
of longevity was introduced, and it was
the united testimony of the party that

The Virginias Afilr-Xessage or Presi
The President, on the 5th insL, trans
mitted the following messago to Con
gress: In my annual message of December
last, I g'ave reason to expect that when
the full and accurate text of the corre
spondence relating to the steamer Vir
ginias, which had toen telegraphed in
cipher, should be received, the papers
concerning the capture of the vessel,
execution of part of its passengers and
crew, and restoration of ship and sur
vivors would be transmitted to Con
gress. In compliance with expectations
then held out, I now transmit the papers
and correspondence on that subject.
On the 26th of September, 1870, tho
Virginius was registered in the Custom
House at New York, as the property of
a citizen of the United States, ho hav
ing first made the oath required by law
that he was the true and only owner of
said property, and that there was no
subject or citizen of any foreign Prince
or State directly or indirectly, by way
of trust, confidence or otherwise, inter
ested therein. Having complied with
the requisites in the statute in that be
half, she cleared, in the usual way, for
the port of Curacoa, and on or about
the -1th of October, 1870, sailed for that
port. It is now disputed that she made
the voyage according to her clearance,
and that from that day to this she has
not returned within the territorial juris
diction of the United States. It is also
understoojMtaLaho preserved her Amer
ican papers, and that when within for
eign porta she made the practice of put
ting forth a claim to American national
ity, which was recognized by tho au
thorities at such ports. When, there
fore, she left the port of Kingston in
October last, under the flag of the
United States, she would appear to have
hud, as against all powers except the
United States, the right to fly that flag,
and to claim its protection, as enjoined
by all regularly documented vesselsreg
istered sis part of our commercial ma
rine. No state of war existed confer
ring upon tho maritime powers the
right to molest and detain upon the
high seas a documented vessel, and it
cannot be pretended that the Virginius
had placed herself without the pale of
law by acts of piracy against the human
race. If her papers were irregular or
fraudulent the offense was ouo against
the laws of the United States, justifiable
only in their tribunals. When, there
fore, it became known that the Virgin
ius had been captured on the high seas
by a Spanish man-of-war ; that the
American flag had been hauled down by
the captors ; that the vessel had been
carried to a Spanish port, and that the
bpanisu tribunals were taking. iiinsdic
tion over the persona of those found on
uer, and exercising that lunsdic
tion on American citizens, not only
m violation of international law, but l
contravention of the provisions of th
treaty of 1795, I directed a demand
be made upon Spain for the restoratioi
of the vessel and for tho return of th
survivors to tho protectiou of the Unitct
states ; for a salute to the flag and fo
the punishment of the ollenuiiig par
ties. The principles uron which thes
demands rested could not bo seriously
questioned, but it was suggested by thd
Spanish Government that there were
grave doubts whether the Virginius wasj
entitled to havo charter given her by
her papers, and that, therefore, it might
bo proper for the United States, afte
tne surrcnuer ot tiie vessel and sur
vivors.to dispense with the salute of the'
flag should such facts bo established to
their satisfaction. Tins seemed to be
reasonable and just. I therefore as
sented to it on the assurance that Spain
would then declare that no insult to the
flag of the United States had been in
tended. I also authorized an agree
ment to be made that, should it be
shown to the satisfaction of tliis Gov
ernment that the Virginius was im
properly bearing the flag, proceedings
should be instituted in our courts for
the punishment of the offense commit
ted against the United States. On her
part, Spain undertook to proceed
against those who had offended the
sovereignty of tho United Stales, or who
had violated their treaty rights.
Their surrender of the vessel
and survivors to tho jurisdiction
or the tribunals of the United
States was an admission of the
principles on which our demand
had been founded. I therefore had no
hesitation in agreeing to the arrange
ment finally made botwecu the two
Governments, an arrangement which
was moderate and just, aud calculated
to cement the good relations which have
so long existed between "Spain and tho
United States. Under tliis agreement,
the Virginius, with the American flag
flying, wa.s delivered to the navy of the
United States at Bahia Honda, in the
Island of Cuba, on tho 16th ult. She
was in an unscaworthy condition. In
the passage to New York she encoun
tered one of the most tempestuous of
onr winter storms. At the risk of their
lives, the officers and crew placed in
charge of her attempted to keep her
afloat. Their efforts wero unavailing,
and she sank off Cape Fear. Tho pris
oners who survived the massacre were
surrendered at Santiago de Cuba on the
17th nit., and reached tho port of New
York in safety.
The evidence submitted on the part
of Spain to establish the fact that the
Virginius, - the time of her capture.
was improperly bearing the flag of the
uniteu states, is transmitted herewith,
together with the opinion of the Attorney-General
thereon, and a copy of the
note of the Spanish Minister, express
ing, on behalf of his Government, a dis
claimer of any intent of indignity to the
flag of the United States.
