A Little Sarcastic.

"Mib Kate, why are you like a tree?"
'Because, because I'm board," she
'Ob. no; because you're woo'd," said
"Why are rou like a tree?" she said.
"I have a heart?" he asked, so low.
Her answer made the young man red:
"Because vou're nappy, don't you
"Once more," she asked, "why are you

AN AUDIENCE OP ONE.
Joe Emmet Relate an AmoKlnjj IncidentHow
Frlti" Matinee were Patronized
at Colnmbna, Ohio.
Joe Emmet, the popular "Fritz"
of the stage, happened to be in a
Wall street broker's office, relating
eoraeamuBing incidents of his life as
a player, when a New York Sun
man dropped in and caught the fol
lowing on the fly:
"The smallest audience I ever had
was in Columbus, O. The managers
had been trying to iutroduce mati
nees, but without much success. Joe
Jefferson, Den man Thompson and
other big stars had gone through the.
mill, and the audience had been
so email that they had shied, aud
refused to take the gate. The money
had been returned at the box-office,
and the diaappoiuted ticket-buyers
had departed, determined never
again to patronize a matinee per
formance in Columbus. The after
noon business was at its lowest ebb
when I struck the town. After two
or three performances the posters
announced a matinee. I went to the
theatre at 2 o'clock that afternoon,
and found my company sky-larking
behind the curtain in their everyday
suits. I looked out in the audito
rium. There was just one man in
the theatre. lie sat clear back in
the parquet. It was as much as I
could do to outline him in the dark
ness. I went out to the box-office.
'Did that man pay for his ticket?'
I asked. 'Yes, 50 cents,' the treas
urer replied. 'The manager told
me to return his money and close
the theatre.' 'No, you wont,' I said.
I have never disappointed an au
dience when I'm sober, and I don't
propose to do so now. "We'll play
for him.' I went into the parquet,
introduced myself to the man, and
thanked him for his atteudance. I
told him that as he had tho't enough
of me to come aud see me, and pay
50 cents for the privilege, he should
have as good a performance as tho'
the house was packed. I then went
behind the curtain and requested
. the company to dress. 'Great Ciesar,
Joe,' one of them said, 'you ain't a
going to play to that one man are
you?' 'Yes I am, I replied. 'He's
paid his money, aud he shall have
his money's worth.' Ob, the devil,'
broke in another member of the
company, 'I'll pay his 50 cents and
you let him go.' I told them that
the performance must go on as usu
al, and I warned each one that auy
attempt to guy the audience, or any
failure to play a part in full would
be tho signal for a discharge.
'Well, tho orchestra played an
overture and the curtain rose,' Fritz
continued. 'I walked down to the
footlights. I invited the- audience
to come forward and take a front
seat where he could see and be seen.
He thanked me and settled himself
in the front row. I suggested that
a little general applause thrown in
where he thought the actors de
served it would 6erve to inspirit
them and warm them to their work.
He seemed to appreciate the situa
tion, and agreed to give s all the
encouragement that he thought we
deserved. The peformance began.
I don't think I ever played better. I
threw myself heart and soul into
the character, and sang the 'Lullaby'
so tenderly that the entire audience
was in tears. He called for au en
core. I told him that we rarely
gave an encore, but as this was an
extraordinary occasion he should
have one. He applauded liberally
at times where no applause was de
served. At such times I called his
attention to the omission, and asked
whether ou reflection he did not
really think that he had made a mis
take. A bint was sufficient. He
would clap his bauds as though per
fectly enchanted and shout 'Bravo!'
like an Italian over Salvini. The
company paid no attention to him,
but went on with the performance
as regular as clockwork. Between
the acts, however, one or two of
them evinced a disposition to go out
Into the auditorium and mingle
with the audience. I set my face
against it, and they refrained. At
the close of the second act the man
ager entered the theatre. He had
been out for a walk. He seemed
dumbfounded at seeing the house
brilliantly lighted, aud the orchestra
playing soberly to one mau. But
he was more astonished when the
curtain rose and the performance
was resumed as much unconcern as
though there were a thousand dol
lars in the house. But he had an
eye to business. He sent word to
the newspaper reporters, and half
a dozen of them arrived in time for
the last act No actor ever received
better newspaper criticisms. Some
of them were over a column long.
It turned out that the audience was
the owner of a copper mine in Mich
igan, and very wealthy. On the
following Bight ho gave the whole
company a banquet at the leading
hotel. He entertained us as hand
somely as we had entertained him,
and we parted with mutual regret.
Just a year afterwards I announced
another .matinee at Columbus. It
was well advertised, and the house
was packed to suffocation. I took
in over $1,200. My sense of duty
to that one man, who had invested
the small sum of half a dollar, had
returned me a golden harvest."
Ed. Joucxal: We have had no
high waters to cau3e destruction of
property. Our stream winds so
crookedly through our valley that
an impetus is.not given to its waters
to form in gorges, which destroy
so ranch property.
Farmers have been busily engaged
this spring in getting their corn out
of the fields, where it has lain all
winter, as the snows have prevented
them getting into the fields to husk
it. This has been indeed a severe
winter to the poorer class of farm
ers who came here la9t year to es
Albion has improved greatly in
the past year. From January 1st,
'80, to January 1st, '81, over $40,000.
This year we expect to see these
figures double. This being the ter
mfnus of the O., N. & B. II. It. R.,
gives us many more advautages than
if it Were extended. If the U. P.
Jl. R. Co. 8hould construct the above
road from Lost Creek to your town,
the benefits would be iucreased ten
fold for us and would be a great
advantage to your citizens.
Albion sustained a heavy fire on
the morning of the 4th of last March,
which was a severe blow for those
suffering by the fire, as some of the
insurance companies refuse to settle
their losses, and are trying to escape
payment on trivial technical grounds.
The burnt portion will be rebuilt
this spring with better aud larger
buildings than before.
Business men look forward to a
nice spring trade. They dcserve'it,
for tho long winter just past has
crippled them badly in many in
stances, for their trade has been very
light since winter came upon us.
Geo. Rieder, a former townsman of
your place, is doiug a heavy busi
ness this spring. George is well
liked, and his strict business princi
ples have won him " hosts of
friend." Galbraith Bros, are doing
a heavy trade. Also Loran Clark &
Co. The last named firm have a
lumber yard, and command a large
trade from adjoining counties.
Some wheat is being shipped from
here this spring, that has but recent
ly been threshed out.
Many stacks of wheat at this writ
ing can be seen in the valley in
every direction. Thousands of acres
will be sown to small grain, this
spring, many more to come. People
are begiuuing to waken up, and will
devote more attention to corn cul
ture than heretofore. It costs lcs9
to raise it than wheat, and does not
exhaust the soil so fast. Many are
turning their attention to diversified
farming, putting in a variety of the
different kinds of crops that are
more paying to the farmer. Thou
sands of the "prairie sod" will be
turned over the coming summer by
the old settler, as well as those who
are laying out a home.
Every day sees immigrants on onr
streets, having just arrived from the
east, anxious to locate before the
great flood of people later in the
season begins to pour into our State
for homes. I would 6ay to those
who perchance may see this article
and are seeking information as to
o-ood localities for the selection of
government and railroad lands, that
this county and the adjoining one
northwest furnishes desirable lands,
well watered and plenty of grasses
for grazing and stock purposes.
John Peters, county clerk, will give
you with pleasure all information
you wish, also W. J. Nelson. I
would say to the business man who
is looking up a location, come here
and look our town over, aud I think
you'd be satisfied with locating
among us. We have good schools,
good society, fine church organiza
tions, and our town is pleasantly
situated. More anon.
The Indian Children.
Some kind friend sends us an oc
casional number o(The School2fewst
edited by Samuel Towusend, a Paw
nee Indian boy, printed by Indian
children, and published at Carlisle,
Penn. We have taken considerable
interest in the little paper, and have
fouud sentiments worthy of, com
memoration. Tako this, for instance,
and what more touching than the
last sentence, when we come to
think of the condition of. utter ig
norance and degredation of the great
body of the Indian youth:
"We wish there were other such
schools like Carlisle, Hampton and
Forest Grove School, where the oth
er Indians could go to school. Great
many of the Indian children are
willing to come east to school. The
people of the United States should
give the Indian children an oppor
tunity like the white people's chil
dren." "My son," said a father, as he
gripped bis boy's ear and led him
towards the garret, "evei'y blow I
strike hurts me as much as it does
you." "Well, father," replied the
"blubbering urchin, "just you boo 1
hoo! hit light, and boo 1 hool
you won't git hurt bad."
"I never thought but once," said
old Deacon Webbing, "that it was a
sin to steal an umbrella." And
when was that?" asked a friend. 'It
was when some pesky thief stole my
new silk one," answered the deacon.
A TlirllliBg Incident.
One of the oldest and best known
residents of Green Island is Uncle
Henry Moreton, an old man of con
siderable wealth. When his house
was swept from its foundations he
and his daughter were the sole oc
cupants, bis wife and son being on
the high ground from which they
could see the old gentleman as he
stood iu a window and waved his
hat at them. The mother and sou
went nearly crazy at the sight, and
so frantic did young Moreton be
come that men had to hold him to
prevent his plunging into the water
in an endeavor to rescue his father
and sister. He cried out that he
would give a thousand dollars to
anyone who would rescue his father
and sister. Fnally Van Allen and
his brother 'Veno,' said they would
make the attempt, though not for
the money. They have been the
ferrymen between Green Island and
Yankton for a number of years, and
so are experienced boatmen. They
found considerable trouble in getting
started, as the wife of the elder Van
Allenclung to him and said he
should not go, for she feared he
would only be going to his death.
At last, however, the two brave fel
lows stole away and getting into a
boat pulled for the house which was
floating away, tossed hither and
thither by the great cakes of ice
which would strike it with blows
that could be beard half a mile
away. Before they got to the house
it hid lodged on some obstruction
and nothing could be seen of the
inmates. The house seemed to be
beld down, aud the water rose until
it was half way up the sloping roof.
They rowed around the peak of the
roof, but could hear no sound save
tho grinding and crushing of tho ice,
and started to return, thinking the
iumates must surely have perished.
Just as they had given up all hope
of being of any service, and started
to pull back, when one of them
thought ho heard a knocking on the
under side of the roof, and they
went back. By listening intently
they now distinctly heard a tap, on
the under side of the shingles, and
going to the spot, cut a hole in the
roof, and through it took out the
old mau and his daughter more dead
than alive, and carried them safely
to the high ground. It seems that
when the house floated off, Mr.
Moreton and his daughter were on
the second floor. When the house
lodged the waters raised rapidly.and
they soon realized that they would
bo drowned if they stayed there.
Aboye them was a garret, and
with a stick Mr. Moreton broke the
plastering overhead, and through
the hole made, helped his daughter
up into the garret, and then, with
her assistance, the old" gentleman
got up there also. It was a low
place, under the peak of the roof,
hardly high enough to permit of
standing upright, and in total dark
ness, there being no window. They
had not been there but a short time
before they could feel the water
gradually creeping up their limbs.
They could not break through the
roof, and there they stood in inky
blackness, clasped in each other's
arms, unable to see the water which
slowly but surely mounted higher
aud higher until at last they stood
waist deep and nearly chilled to
death, for it was icy cold. To add
to the horror of the situation the
house would rock and pitch, and the
grinding and crashing of the ice
against the building was something
awful to listen to. At a moment
when there was a lull in the roar of
the flood, the imprisoned ones could
hear the men outside in the boat,
and then it was that Mr. Moreton
pounded on the roof with all the
strength and energy ho could mus
ter. Providentially, almost, the
quick ears of one of the Van Allen's
heard the noise, and an awful fate
was averted. West. Point Repub

A post mortem examination was
held on Monday by Dr. Sharp over
the body of a seven-year-old son
of Daniel Normau, of Shortcreek
township, who recently died of
gravel stone in the bladder. The
boy had been sutlering from this
deposit for the past three years, and
although the family were advised
repeatedly to have it removed, it
was not thought necessary until too
late. For a young boy to die of
such a diseaso was vory unusual and
an examination was ccrtaiuly justi
fied. The stone removed is as large
as an egg and weighs 13,000 grains,
which is a very extraordinary case,
there being few cases so bad on re
