From the St. Louis GIolwDriniK-nit.
The alternate sunshine and shade
which are incident to wine hninan lives
have never been so strikingly illustrated
as they are in the ctiso of Mrs. Iollv
Iconise Hunter, who has been a South
ern belle and heiress; the Jtnnncrc of a
Confederate General ; the wife of a noted
politician ; the relative of a United .States
Senator; the sister-in-law of the (lov
ernor of a State; one of the society
women of that wonderful and dazzling
retinuc'tbnt made Washington City so
famous; and Is now a mendicant, aking
the charity of the pconlc of this city to
give hcrfood anil- .-heller. She is now
past the half century mark; but her de
meanor marks her as having been a
woman of remarkable force of charac
ter, and out of the storm marks which
misfortunes have made niton her face
there are the unmistakable traces of
high breeding and intelligence, ami
enough left to make one sure that some
time in life her beauty was of no mean
She came to St. Imi1- on the 29th day
of last August, and presented hen-el f to
Capt. I.iee, who was then Acting Chief
of 1'olice. She asked to be screened
from publicity, and said all .she de-ircd
w:l- a place to lay her head, and a few
friends to whom she might go without
intrusion and obtain the necessaries of
life. Capt. Lee took her ca.-e in hand,
and procured a room for her on Wash
ington Avenue. He presented her ease
to the attention of Mime of the wealthy
people of St. Iouis, who never permit
ted her to suffer. A few day- ago she
conceived the fancy that, her condition
would become public, and a-ked ('apt.
Lee to obtain a pass for her to Hot
Springs, where she has .-ome friends
who, it is wid, would have contributed
to her wants before this had they known
the dire distress upon which she has
Heforc the war she was the owner of
1,IMK acres of land in Virginia. She
was then what the world called a splen
did woman. She had the traditions of
nobility attached to her family name;
she had the finish which true culture
anil nobility always evince; she was a
woman who had traveled and read, and
her mind was a store-house of all that
makes true womanhood admirable. It
was at this time that .-he was wooed by
a dashing young Virginian. She gave
him the promise to wed; their love was
of a two-fold nature, partaking of the
nature of that which makes the sweete-st
music in the heart and helps ' the world
go round," and that of business. Into
hi- hatid.s she entrusted the estate, and
was .solicitous for him to relieve her of
the care. He did it with a delicacy that
excited no unfavorable comment. The
war darkened the land. There was a
feeling among Southern women in tho-u
days which made heroes of their lover.-,
ami for a man to hesitate in the matter
of duty to his land was to annul every
l.iim upon the heart he had made.
The young Virginian was not a loiterer.
He espoused the cause of the South and
at once commenced the organization of
a regiment. This regiment iv:is equip
ped and sent to .lubal Karl by the
wealth of this woman. She gave it
every thing, and the man who marched
at the head of the column had her heart.
It parsed out from before a throng of
beauty cheered by song and christened
by tears, and went away to battle. In
the course of a few mouths its ranks
were decimated, and the war was not
half over when the organizer was about
t he only survivor. He became a Gen
eral and was transferred to the Gulf
Department. The war w:u over, but
the man was changed. His heart had
gone down with the tlag he loved, and
bv degrees the soldier and gentleman
developed into the charlatan.
Hy some means which are not given
to the chronicler of this "leaf" he ob
tained the consent of the woman he
loved to dispose of her estate. The
money which was the result passed into
his hands, ami wild speculations ami
filibuster schemes upon his part, coupled
with debauchery, .-wept it away before
the rightful owner could realize the ruin
before her. They never met again.
Whether this was a romance of her life
from which she gathered thorns, is not
known. Hut she lived it through, and
very soon after married the Hon. I'hilip
Hunter, who was a member of Congress
from a Maryland district, it is said, and
who died soon after from the bursting
of a blood vessel. He was a relative of
the Hon. H. M. T. Hunter, Secretary of
State in the Kichmond Cabinet. Her
husband's estate was not sufficient to
meet the demands made by her social
position, and she very quickly found
herself facing want in the very .shadow
of what had so recently been a life of
fashion and splendor. Not earing to
occonio ilepeiulcnt on her husiiaml s
people, she left that .section and went to
2s"evv Orleans. In the summer of 1S78
her daughters were atllieted with the
terrible "scourge of the South and
died within nine days of each
other. She had scarcely with
drawn from their graves " when
two of her grandchildren died
from the same alllictiou. Poverty
pres-ed closely upon her in her alllic
tions, and she came to St. Louis. There
had lived in this city a gentleman
named Martin Alexander, whom her
mother had adopted when he was a boy.
She came here expecting to find him
and place her unfortunate condition be
fore him. Her first day's search for
him brought her the intelligence that
he, too, had pacd away from this life,
and she found herself alone and penni
less in the face of a city of a half-million
people. It was the terror of this
truth that caused her to seek the advice
of Cant. Lee, who was then acting Chief
of Police. She is the niece of William
Rufus King, who was a United States
Senator from Maryland, and a sister-in-law
of Gov. Early of North Carolina.
She left on the train Friday evening to
join her friends at Hot Springs. She
says she has had misfortunes enough to
drive most women to suicide; but being
possessed of remarkable strength of
mind she has never given up, and is
waiting for the day to come when the
last trouble shall cinne to her.
Care of Plants Through lhc Winter.
In a few days the frost will take pos
session of tender plants in the garden,
and as many plants can be taken in
doors and-with good care made to grow
to cheer us through the winter, to rrans
plant from the flower-beds to the room
we should first cut back the plants and
allow them to stand for a few days, then
lift and pot in good fresh soil ; water
thoroughly, placing them in a shady
position, out of the winds for a tew days,
then bring them into the room where
they are to remain; care should betaken
not to water too much ; many plants are
injured or killed by water keeping the
soil saturated by having saucers under
the pots filled with water. A good way

There was a certain Mi oiiri regi
ment commanded by Gen Fi-k. It was
largely composed of tho-e chaps picked
up on the levee of St. Iiuis; rough, un
couth, ready for alino-t any thing, in a
word, but good-hearted fellows. (Jen.
Fi-k wa-a pious and good man. He
found he wa- the Colonel of the pro-fanc-t
regiment in the whole army. Af
ter he had been with them long enough
to find them out, and thev to find him
out, he called them together once and
.said : Now, I want to make one prop
osition to you. One of the first orders
that General Washington issued to hi.s
army wa- one again-t profanity. Now,
I don't intend to is-ue any order of that
kind, lint I intend to let you vote about
it. I am the Colonel of this regiment,
and I am going lo do all the swearing
" Now, will you agree by a vote that
you will not swear, but will leave me to
do all the swearing?" The boys voted
that they would do it, and there was a
diminution in the swearing of that regi
ment lor -nine time. lint one night
there was a Kentucky mule-driver and
I can tell 3011 a Kentucky mule-driver
can swear some. His six-mule team got
stalled ju-t as he was coming up with
the General's tents and headquarters'
articles, and the stream of profanity
that poured out of the mouth of that
Kent uck v mule-driver really freighted
and burdened the air. After it was all
over Fisk called him to his tent. He
said to the soldier, " Don't 3011 know
that it was agreed by a vote of thu regi
ment that I was tu do all the .swearing
of the regiment?" " Ves," said the man.
" Well, here vou are swearing loud
enough to be heard through all the sur
"That's all right, Colonel; that's all
right," said the man. " I know we
voted that wa-, but the swearing had to
be done then and you were not there."
One day in the lecture-room in Wash
ington City, among the winters of 1 Jst 1
and IHiA, Col. Fi-k told that tory in a
little lecture. Abraham Lincoln was
sitting on one of the front seats with his
hand clasped oer his knee, enjoying it
veiy much, and laughed at it as he
would at any good anecdote. It hap
pened that there came to him an unfor
tunate old huh, who said she must talk
with the President. She told him her
son in the Kast, Flinn, who had gone
into the 1'iiion Army, when coining near
his home had gone off to visit his moth
er, or, perhaps his sweetheart, and the
army, instead of marching on in the
direction he thought it would, took an
other route, and he was gone three or
four weeks. He was finally arrested as
a deserter, convicted and sentenced to
be executed. There had been a good
deal of that sort of thing. There must

ne loin her stoiy, ami Lincoln says:
"There is a good deal in this; give me
the papers 3011 have; I .sympathize, with
you, and I will take the papers and ask
the Secretary of War, Stanton, to look
into it, and we will see what we can do
for3ou." "Hut," srrys she, "the exe
cution takes place next Frida3, and 3011
must give me the pardon now."
Why," said Lincoln, "that reminds
me of a little story," and then he went
on and told her the whole stoiy, and
the poor woman stood there while he
told the .story 1 have been telling 3011.
After cnjoing the story as Lincoln "did,
he picked up an old, 3elIow envelope
and wrote on it " Let John Thomas be
pardoned," and sent it to the War De
partment, and the mother was happy.
A Curious Missionary Contribution.
Missionaries in the Far We-t and
Northwest have a tough time of it.
Their pay is small and it reaches them
irregularh. Fortunately, some of the
rich churches have a practice of making
up boxes of clothing and other nec
essaries, which are sent at long inter
vals, to relieve the wants of missionary
families. The ladies generally take
pleasure in the preparation of the con
tents of the-e boxes. Some sewing-societies
are thus kept bus3 all winter.
Formerly it was the practice to send
clothing at random, trusting to luck for
the accuracy with which it might Hap
pen to fit the people for whose benefit it
was sent. The ludicrous misfits some
times made the " missionary " box more
ridiculous than acceptable. In latter
3ears it has become eustomaiy for the
senders of boxes to write to the mission
aries for whom thev are intended and
secure information :is to sizes and shapes. 1

Triumphs of (he Newspaper.
Kvery thing considered, the newspa
per is the best and most available of li
braries. The one act of cheapness is so
strongly in its favor as to overbalance
the iiiajorit3 of arguments that can be
advanced upon the opposite side. It is
within the reach of ever one, no matter
how poor, and finds an entrance where
books (as a rule) never can; it comes
weekly, and is read and loaned until ac
tually worn out; can be caught up ifone
has but a moment of time, some knowl
edge can be gained, and laid down again
without detriment to the sense. A sin
gle brief item frequently gives what
pages of book-bound matter would have
to be waded through to learn: for the
newspaper 1 the epitome of the entire
worm. In the briefest possible space all
that is necessan to the correct under
standing of the subject is given to such
perfection has the art of condensation
The newspaper, with the present facil
ities for almost instantly learning what
is transpiring in every jMirtion of the
habitable globe, is the-'reflection of the
hour equally as much as of past ages.
Hy it the North and the South, the Ka-t
and the West, are brought together.
We know of the crashing of the ice and
the curling heat of the sun: we are with

the whale to its fabulous depths: are

A wonderful, concise, most skillfully
painted panorama of the affairs of the
world is the newspaper: a map of its
busy life: a faithful reproduction of all
its lights and shadow:
:ind at the most
nominal co-t: at themere-t ba;
books even in these flays of exceptional
cheapness. Week after week the paper
comes filled with all that is rare, new,
interesting and instructive. It is a his
tory of nations in fifty-two volumes; an
ever-continued ene3clopa-dia of trade,
science, biography, agriculture and the
arts ; is the " boiling down " of all
books in so minute a form that the mind
can grasp at a single glance, and be
saved the wading "through ponderous
volumes of uninteresting detail to the
great saving of time. It is, in fact, the
grandest of all circulating libraries, at
only a penm fee: the throwing open to
thepublie of all the costly and exclusive
archives of the world. The newspaper
of to-dav is a perfect omnium gatherum.
Nothing escapes its notice. Every event
of importance is instantly photographed
upon its pages. The whispers breathed
in every clime are caught and fixed. It
is a marvel of intelligence; is the stereo
type of every ruind. " We look back in
wonder at the days when it was not,aml
human intelligence shudders to think of
the barbarism and ignorance and sujer
stition that would follow the blotting
out of this the sun of the solar system.

" The man who ha not taken a Turk

The Aincrican Career of the Sparrow.
The first attempt, as far a- is known,
to introduce the common hou-e parrow
of Kurope tffur country wa- made by
a gentleman named De-blois, in 1'ort
laiul, Maine, during the autumn of ls,V;
he brought over a few birds from the
Continent, and lilierated them in a large
garden which wa- -ituated within the
ceiitral part of the city. They remained
there sheltered and secure under the
caw-of a neighboring church through
out the winter, and in the following
spring -ettled down happily enough to
the labor of nc-t-building and rearing
their young. Two years later the first
pair of these finches were set at liberty
near .Madison Square, New York City:
the importation was steadily ii-pcalc'd.
the bint- being rclea-ed in the Central
Park and at Jersey City. Thev were
first introduced to ho-ton in lMls b the
city government, and to Philadelphia Wy
the municipal authorities in iMi'J, and
from these small beginnings the hou-e-sparrow
has been spread all over this
Northern country wherever we haw-a
city east of the Kocky Mountain-, and
the fluttering Hocks of the robu-t, noi-v
little foreigner enliven the streets there
of in eveiy direction. Their number
are nearly countless.
The object at firt for the introduction
of the house-sparrow does not seem to
have been one of a practical -uggc-tion,
hut rather one in the nature of senti
ment. Since, however, the attention of
the citizens was called to the great nui
sance of the exi-tenee of canker and
inea-ure worms in the shade tree-of the
old cities of the Union, the fact that the
house-sparrow would remain with
Us all winter, and feed as ener
getically tinon the worms as any of our
own birds which always, without
exception, left for warmer climes even
season the thought of practical appli
cation took life in encouraging the in
troduction of the Kngli-h sparrow as n
means of relief more certain than that
afforded 1)3 airy or all of our indigenous
finches. As soon as this became gener
ally understood, the little John Hull was
distributed with great indu-tiy all over
the country for this purpose; but as ure
as it became numerous in any town or
city, a spirited oppo-ition sprang up to
11, an'i exists 10-0:13- wiiii more or ie-s
vitality in every section where the bird
is fairly settled. Whole books have been
written pro and con, and naturali-t- haw,
waged unrelenting war upon one an
other, as thc3" differed in e-timating the
value and the services of Vgrgxla tlo
mcttiat: but in the judgment of the
writer, the entire practical bearing of
the controversy has not been fully pre
sented b3 either the friends or the foes
of the little finch, for it must seem clear
enough to those who will follow the line
... ... ...
of argument in this article that while
the house-sparrow is eminently tit and
wonderfully well constituted for life in
Northern cities, 3-et it is a sad rowdy
and nuisance in the country: while
in the former ease it renders admirable
service in destroying insect jvsts that
disfigure the .-hadv "avenues of city for
estry, 3et in the latter field it can not
compete with our native birds in ento
mological service to man, and having
given pKxl reason for dislike on the
part of the growers of fruit, tiny are
doubly incensed because the law will
not allow them to shoot, trap, or de
stroy the enemy. Prof. JI. If. EUMt,

though, it i-acknowledged, there were
not -o many egg- a- weie expected from

wholly to injudicious feeding. Too
much corn and other rich food are gi
eii, particularly the corn, Imu more par
ticularly 111 -uminer, when it 1- too heat

should form but a small proportion of
the feed in warm weather, to be in

feed and fed to the full extent. This
difference in the different -ean- i- im
portant, as in winter corn can be made
a real help toward- -ecuring warmth, a
thing -o much needed at thi- -en-ou. I
have known large, healtlry hens, of the
Hrahma and Black Spanish breeds, lay
well during the entire winter confined in
an ordinary barn and given a liberal
feed composed mostly of corn. I have
known quite a number of such casfM.
The fowl- were expo-ed to the low tem
perature of the eason, but not to
draught- of cold air. They were large
and vigorous, and capable of generating
warmth, which the corn enabled
them to do increasingly, keeping upnl-o
