there westward. The Indians in those

BY ANNA LINWOOD.
Barbara sat in her little room, busy
with her sewing-machine. Around her
were great piles of vests, which she had
just finished. Though the room was so
small, the, sunlight came in and tinged
everything with its golden light. In

The young girl paused In her work
to listen to the song of a robin under her
window; then she began to sing to her
self in a care-free, happy way. Just
then she heard an old body hobbling up
the stairs, and afterward came a knock
at the door. Barbara went to open it.
An aged man stood before her ninety

The old man put his hand to his ear,
as if quite unable to catcli a word.
"Come in," she shouted ; and he fol
lowed her into the room.
"I'm your Uncle Jacob," he screamed,
as if she were as deaf as himself "your
mother's only brother; and I have come
to find you."
"Ay, ay," said Baibara, with whom
the love of kindred was very strong.
The longer she gazed into his face,
the more she saw the look of her moth
er. There was the same kind smile,
the same merry glance in the twinkling,
gray eye3. So she fell to hand-shaking
in her hearty German fashion; then
came the tears, and it all ended by
throwing her arms around his neck and
A short time afterward, Barbara
began to set the table, for to talk with
her old uncle was impossible. Just as
she had finished, by placing a huge
platter as a center dish, up the stairs
came her brothers, Conrad and Joe.
They were much the worse for lager,
as they usually were at night, and whin
they saw a decrepit old man sitting at
their table, they were anything but

softly, "come to see us from Germany

he wasn't so deaf, I so want to taik with
A moment afterward, as Conrad and
Joe began to swear, she was glad that
he could not hear them. Barbara gave
the old man her bed; then she sat down
to do a little extra work, that she might
buy comforts for him. At length she
lay down upon a hard couch, but sleep
soon came, for sho was young and
healthy. Next morning, Uncle Jacob
was too ill to rise.
"Send the old body to the poor-house,"
said the brothers in a bieath ; "it's too
much to expect to support all our

The young men answered her rough

out of the room. Barbara batlrd the
old man's head, and with a few soft
touches about the pillow that love
alone can give, sho went back to her
That night the brothers came home
more drunk than usual to pick up their
things and start for the "West, they said:
"You'd better go with us, Barbara.
We're going to make money like dirt;
and as to staying here and supporting
an old pauper, we will not do it"
"Xo. indeed, I will not leave him,"
said Barbara. But when she saw them
going down stairs with their satchels on
their arms, the love of kindred which
was so strong in her heart made her
follow them. "Let us shake hands,"
she said, softly, "we may never meet
again;" and, rough as they were, they
returned her warm kiss, and said, "God
bless you," ere they departed.
When they were gone, Barbara went
back to her room and cried as if her
heart would break. In the midst of her
weeping, there was a well-known foot
fall on the stairs, and in a minute more,
her friend, Fred Heiberger, was beside

Barbara's face brightened as he spoke,
but she answered,
"It will come right in time let us
work and wait"
"Perhaps so," said Fred, with a sigh.
Barbara resolved to bcw harder than
ever, so that, besides supporting her
aged uncle, she might now and then lay
up a penny.

to him, and said

fully looking it along, her eye fell upon
a small bundle of papers. To her sur
prise, they were drafts to a Urge amount,
and in her name. Just at that moment
Fred came in.
"Do look here, said the amazed girl;
"what can this mean V
"I'm sure I don't know," said the
young man, equally surprised.
"It means," said the uncle, with a low,
chuckling laugh, "that I'm most done
with the money, and I want to give it
to some one who deserves it Eh, eh,
child, I've been foolin' you. Conrad
and Joe wanted to cart these old bones
to the poor-house; would they do it
now, think you?"
"And do you mean to give so much
money to me?" said Baibara.
"Yes; why not? I haven't a child of
my own, and why shouldn't I give it to
Barbara's children; especially to the one
that was willing to share her last crust
with me?. It's all coming out right."
"Then why may we not many, Fred ?"
"Sure enough," said the uncle. "The
young man shall go at once for the min
ister, for thi3 sickness is no sham, what
ever may bo said of the deafness. Well,
I shall soon be gone."
So Fred went for the minister, two or
three neighbors came in, and, standing
close by Uncle Jacob, the words were
spoken which made the young couple
one. Then they knelt by the bed, and
Uncle Jacob himself offered the prayer
and gave the blessing.
"Now ou can take the bakery," said
Uncle Jacob, when the guests were -one,
and the three were left to themselves.
"It is on the corner, you say, and has
two sunny windows above. Be sure you
always give honest weight, and have a
penny for the poor."
"I am so glad you can hear me," said
Barbara, laying her hand on his with
ered cheek. 'T hope we shall yet have
manv good talks together."
"Not so, mv child, for I shall soon be
gone. But did you notice, my dear, at

"It was right by the thirt'-fourth

An OM Trapper Experleure Forty Tears
Afzn in the LhimI of Gold and Furs.
Having just returned with the Cora
mission to negotiate with the Sioux, of
which I was a member, I was informed
in a late issue of your paper you pub
lished a sketch of Gen. B. L. E. Boone
ville, in which some errors have crept
which I would like to correct without,
detracting from the well-established
fame of the General. The public gen
erally seem to think that Booneville
and Fremont and Marcy were the rlrst
explorers of the sections of which they
give such graphic descriptions, but in
this they are in error, as most of the
country was hunted, trapped, and
prospected years before they set about
their scientile explorations. Captain
Booneville received a furlough in 1S32,
and explored the West for four years.
In 1S25 I accompanied Gen. W. H.
Ashley, ol St Louis, with a party of 100
trappers, to the Rockv Mountains.
Ashley took out a party of fifty men
in 1823, at which time I was among the
Osages in charge of the trading outfit
of Messrs. Paul Balis & Co., of Saint
Louis. Tie left his p3rty near the Great
Salt Lake, under Jackson and Sublett,
and took out our party to reinforce
them. We found on arriving on Bear
River that the Indians had attacked and
dispersed the first party, and the sur
vivors were scattered through the
mountains. The trappers of our party,
and others who were in the country,
trapped all along the mountains from
the British possessions into Mexico.
Our principal competitors in those days
were the free trappers of the British
Northwestern Fur Company, who
ranged all over west of the mountains,
and had taken out 3,000,000 beavers be
fore Ashley's first party went to work.
When Ashley returned to St Louis in
1825 he left the party of about ninety
five men camped on Bear River (now
in Utah), in charge of CoL Robert
Campbell, now one of the wealthiest
men of St Louis.
lieve we had seen a mirage, common on
those plains. But a short time brought
us to the underground village of the
Pawnees, where they lived in subterra
neous rooms, like the nrairie doir3.
These rooms were about eight feet in
diameter, and lined with grass and
buffalo hides, each being the abode of
a family. We had no especial inci
dents beyond those of bunting and
trapping on the expedition. We ran
into a party of Rickarees who were
going to fight the Pynees, and a few
of our fellows put the party to flight

Along between 1S25 and 18.'.." the fur
trade fever was at its bight The
American Fur Company of St. Louis
and the other companies had over 1,000
men in their employ. They built forts
at the mouth of the Yellowstone, at the
Mandan Village (above the present site
of Bismark, D. T.), and at the mouth of
the Teuton, since called Bad River.
Fort Leavenworth was also built by
tho United States. The British com
pany had fully 1,000 men trapping and
trading west of the mountains, and tho
Mexicans had quite as many trappers
and traders from the mountains to the
Pacific, and there were jis many more
free traders and trappers scattered all
over the West and Northwest Many
of tnese men found gold in the Black
Hills and other places, but the trapping
and trading paid far better then than
gold hunting, and was more certain,
and when the rush was made for Cali
fornia all the old trappers pointed to
the Black Hills as a line field for mining
enterprise. These trappers rarely ever
became miners ;they preferred their soli
tary rambles to the bustle of a mining
camp ; but they penetrated everywhere
and guided the explorers to the wonder,
ful scenes in whose description they
have gained such fame.
In conclusion I will say that Kit Car

much younger, his mother being a
Boone. One day meeting Fremont in
tho Capitol and speaking of Carson and
other things, he said: "Boone, I
thought I was the first white man at In

Cupid's Last Prank.
The very largest congregation that
ever assembled in any church in Lex
ington came together on Monday, Jan
uary 1, at the Main Street Christian
Church, to witness the marriage of Dr
Joseph G. Chinn and Mrs. Catharine
Lawson, the former of this city and the
latter of Fayette County. The respect
ive ages of the high contracting parties
made it one of the most extraordinary
marriages that was ever solemnized
The groom was of the ripe but modest
age of eighty years, and looked as vig
orous as most men of sixty. The lady
will be ninety years of age on the 1st
day of May next Dr. Chinn was a
soldier of the war of 1812. He enlisted
when about thirteen years of age, but
owing to an accident, by which he was
severely wounded in the foot he did not
go out until the next year, but served
with credit until the close of the war.
This is his third marriage, but in all
probability he may survive it many
years. Mrs. Lawson was bsrn in Vir
ginia, but was brought by her parents to
Kentucky in early life. When but six
teen she was addressed by Mr. David
Lawson, and became engaged to him,
but witii rare good sense refused to
marry him until he had secured suffi
cient for their mutual support He left
immediately for the South, where he
remained twenty-three years, she hear
ing nothing of him in the meantime,
but remained constant through those
long years of silence and doubt At
last he one day walked into the parlor
of the house where his faithful Kitty''
lived, and claimed her hand and the
fulfillment of her promise, saying that
he had made money enough to purchase
a farm. They were duly married and
lived together forty years, during which
they grew rich, and the kind of wife
she made is best told when it is said
that he left her his whole estate. A

Since the account of tho banshee
warning that attended the deaths in an
Evansville family that was published
in the Journal, a highly intelligent and
reliable citizen has furnished us with
the facts regarding apparations that
were twice seen in a dwelling in the
suburbs of this city. We are not at
liberty to give true names or to locate
the house, but the story is vouched for
by our informant, who is well acquaint
ed with all tho parties, concerned.
About eighteen years ago there lived
with her relatives, an uncle and aunt, a
Miss Harris, who was young and amia
ble, and was engaged to be married.
She had a verv intimate friend some
years older than herself, Mrs. Cook, and
the two had often amused and instruct
ed themselves with inquiry into super
natural subjects, so called, and among
others discussed and investigated the
doctrine of Spiritualism, which was then
finding lodgment in tho West. One day
it was proposed, half in jest and half in
earnest, that the one of the two friends
who died first was to appear to the sur
vivor in order to set at rest all doubt
upon tho subject. The proposition was
accepted, and by discussion they adopted
it seriously, and agreed that the one
dead should, if possible, make tbe
demonstration. In less than a year Mrs.
Cook was dead, and in a short time Miss
Harris broke her engagement when the
wedding day was near. She was un
happy, and on the evening which had
been set apart for the wedding she re
tired early and was restless. It was
warm, and about midnight fiuding she
could not go to sleep, she raised the
mosquito bar and arose to walk to the
window. As she did so she confronted
a solemn veiled figure standing at the
side of the bea gazing upon her with
rigid, yet questioning countenance. One
quick, earnest look, and tbe girl recog
nized the features of her dead friend,
Mrs. Cook. She w;is terribly frightened,
and, uttering loud shriek3. ran past and
down stairs into the room of her uncle
and aunt, and there trembling with
fright cowered behind their bed. She
was so unnerved that she was utterly
unable to speak, and they were tring
in vain to ascertain the cause of her
fright, when another scream wa3 heard,
aud a servant girl who had a room op
posite Miss Harris, bounded down stairs
and into the room also frightened. Upon
inquiry the girl said that she heard Miss
Harris scream, and thought it proceeded
from her aunt She arose to go to the
old lady's room, and as she entered the
hall she saw a white figure kneeling at
Miss Harris' door, with her hand shad
ing her eyes, as if in sorrow. She
looked again and recognized -the dead
woman, Mrs. Cook, and shrieking ran
down stairs. A close search of the
house failed to reveal anv intruder or
any signs of one. The doors were all
locked and the ground windows closed.
Miss Harris afterward married a most
worthy minister of tho gospel, and is
now living in the far West
After detailing these facts, and giving
the skeptic a chance to explain them
away, we will now relate the sequel to
this story. About two months ago two
young ladies arrived in this city from
New Albany, Ind., to visit the aunt of
the former Miss Harris. They remained
here for six weeks. Two weeks before
they left they were both sleeping in the
same bed in the room formerly occuDied
by Miss Harris.
One night just after midnight both
awoke suddenly with a shock, each
without knowing the other was awake
There standing by the side of the bed
was a white-robed figure, dim and in
distinct but evidently that of a woman.
Each girl, in great fright softly at
tempted to awake the other, and at the
same moment discovered both were
awake. As they looked, the figure, dim
and shadowy, glided slowly backward,
and disappeared into the hall, through
the closed door. They both arose
instantly, fearing It was some thief who
had gained admission to the house. The
