FORTY YEARS 11 LOVK.
'It won't do,' baid old Tibbets,
ahakiug hi3 head furiously. 'I al
ways have hated those Patridgee,
aud you shan't marry Fanny.'
'A man's affections' began Ho
ratio. Nonsense!' cried old Tibbits.
You talk like a bording-school girl.
You are of age, I know ; but I give
you warning, if you persist, I'll take
that clever little Johnson into part
nership instead of you aud you may
beg or starve as you please, for the
sake of a red-haired girl like Fannie
Olrtrolled old Tibbets as he utter
ed these last words.
Meanwhile Mrs. Partridge aud
Fanny were hard at it Funny in
tears; Mrs. Partridge in fury.
'I'd rather see you in y6ur grave,
Fanny,' cried Mrs. Partridge. 'Old
Tibbets' son. Why don't you choose
a chimney sweep? It was Tibbets
that cheated your pa's brother out of
that piece of property. A bigger
rascal uever walked! No, Fnnuy,
you walk over my dead body before
you go to church with him.'
Fanny was seventeen and very
submissive. Horatio, although live
and twenty, submissive likewise.
Parental authority prevailed. One
meeting was allowed in which the
two might bid good-bye to each
other. Fanny wept. Horatio he.ld
her hands in both of his, aud kissed
them very fondly.
'They may yield in time,' said
Horatio, 'or something may happen
to alter things. Be true to me for a
little while. I shall never love any
one but you.'
'My heart is broken,' said Fauny,
believing it sincerely. 'Hut I shall
bo true to you nil my life.'
Immediately he kissed her. He
never forgot how hard it was to take
his lips from hers ; and their arms
encircled each other. And it Was
really a wonder that tho two young
lovers did not die then and thero.
Old Tibbets rewarded his son by
making him partner in tho prosper
ous firm of Tibbets & Co., forthwith,
while Mamma Partridge hurried
Fanny away to tho north of France.
Horatio did not forget easily. It
had been a cherished plan of his to
marry Fanny. He had a mind that
was prone to dwell upon detail. All
his fancies about the future had been
perfectly finished pictures.
It was hard to believe that tho lit
tle rotiud tt'a-tablc would never be
set with painted china; that Fanny,
as Mrs. Tibbets, would not sit be
side him in the third pew from the
front on Sunday mornings; that she
would not go with him to choose
tho color of the drawing-room fur
niture; that they would not have
their portraits painted to hang one
each side of the mantlepiece.
Fannie was his practical or gen
eral idea ; that they might have walk
od together forever in the moonlight,
was, perhaps, strongest with her.
But had he been the most perfect
hero of romance she could not have
placed him on a higher pedestal.
The match certainly would have
been a happy one had fate willed it
to be a match at all. They loved
each other too well to seek comfort
in new lovers.
Horatio became very steady, and
shunned ladies' society ; antt Fanny,
after refusing an English baronet
and a German baron, declined going
into society any more, and settled
down with her mother in a little
town upon tho Continent, where
four or five English families dwell
ing there exchanged whist parties,
and there wero no young English
people whatever. There, at thirty,
she was stiU living, and then it was
that there came to the place an Eng
lish traveler who called upon her.
Ho was a friend of Mr. Horatio Tib
betts, and had been commissioned to
band her a small parcel, and he was
to tell Mr. Tibbets how she looked
and was, and that ho was very well,
quite bald for his years and unmar
ried. And then tho traveler went
The gift was a dainty work-box,
worth a great deal of monoy, and iu
the little box where the thimble lay
was also a ring. Its motto was
Fanny never showed this gift to
her mother, but she woro that ring
against her heart under her dress.
New hope crept into her soul ;
and when a few years after a good
looking, wealthy widower ollercd
his hand, with a genuine love in the
bargain, she refused without hesita
tion. Forget? Never! He had
not forgotten. But more years pass
ed, ten of them at least, and the
memory of tbo old family feud still
dwelt in the bosom of the two old
At last, at the ago of eighty, Mrs.
Partridge died ; and Fanny, all aloue
in what had always remained a
strange land, felt inieerably desolate.
Youth had departed friends were
few. It had been her mother's wish
to remain in France ; now her heart
dictated a return home. The first
mornine paper she opened there told
her of the death of Mr. Tibbets, aged
The paper dropped from Fanny's
hand, and she sat quite motiouless
for moro than twenty minutes.
Thon Bho began to cry very softly,
and took the ring from her pocket
aud looked at it.
'Dinna forget,' she sobbed. 'I am
sure ho has not forgotten.'
And alio began to wonder what he
looked liko now. He must havo
altered. Perhaps be was so portly,
like his father. Well, she was rather
stout herself. One could not be a
slender youth forever; and he had
probably a streak of gray iu his dark
hair. Nothinir could alter his eyes,
however. Or, if ho was altogether
altered, she would love him still.
Why uot since it was heart that lov
ed, and not the flesh aud blood.
Aud she so managed that the news
should reach him in a few days' time
that she was there. He had heard
it, as she had meant he bhould. He
had been all alone and very lonely.
He had been an obedient son aud
atlectionate one, and bad loved the
testy old man dearly. But now he
thought it would harm no one if ho
should try to realize his youthful
He sighed and looked out of the
window; walked to the fire-pluce
and stood there unrelenting; bright
ened up and began to make one of
his old fancy pictures of Fanny at
the other side of the fire.
She'll bo tho older, of course,' ho
said. 'Thin perhaps fragile and
worn; pale, too. No matter; it's
Fanny, and she'll be beautitul to me.'
And he wrote her a letter on the
spot, in which, however, he only
told her he whh coming to see her.
An elderly lady was walking in a
green lane near Honey, with two
children, aud a poodle which was
her own, the children her landlady's.
Sho was a very stout lady, with four
china and a red face, and no waidt
As she walked, there came up tho
lane a weary old gentleman, with a
Jarge green umbrella under bis arm.
His nose and chin met. His head
was as smooth as an egg, except ut
tho nape of the neck, where six hairs
still clung. His ears stood out on
each side of his face, large, yellow
and with frosty pinches on them.
He had watery-blue eyes, and a wart
on his forehead. Just the kind ot
old man the stout lady hated.
For his part he disliked fat women.
A frizzy old creature,' he thought ;
and just then the poodle aud chil
dren, all tied together with blue
ribbon, tangled themselves about his
legs and nearly upset him.
'Come here, my dears; don't run
against tho gentleman in that way,'
said the fat lady in a faint yoice.
'People should teach their grand
children aud their dogs better man
ners,' said the old gentleman, testily.
'My grandchildren?' panted the
old lady ; 'what importinence ! Cru
elty to animals is forbidden by law,
'If this dog is mad, as he seems to
be, I will havo him shot,' said tho
'Como here, Fido, darling,' cried
the elderly lady. 'My dears, rnn
homo to your ma.'
Aud just then out steppe'd the
landlady. To her the old gentleman
'I bog pardont ma'm. Can you tell
me in which of these houses I can
find a lady of the name of Partridge
Miss Fanny Partridge?'
'Why this is the house, sir,' said
the landlady ; 'and hero is Miss Par
'Will you hand her this?' said the
old gentleman, looking around
eagerly for Miss Partridge, and
never thinking of the stout lady.
'Here, ma'm,' said the landlady,
presenting the card to that individ
ual. 'That sir, is Miss Partridge.'
The name upon the card was
Horatio TibbetP.' That hideous
little old man, like a weasel, with

Neither would believe it; but it

as they did so, they dipcovcred that

sods were over their poor hearts !
Had they married years bofore,
probably they would havo been still
dear to each other, still pleasant to
look upon in the affection, but meet
ing as strangers they repulsed each
'If he should presume on our old
affection 1' thought Fanny, 6iich a
very disagreeable old man !
'If she should expect me to re
member the past, this dreadful
mountain of flesh!' thought Horatio,
aud then ho told her ho was glad to
see her looking so well and hoped
they would be neighbors.
She thought filial;; unlikely, the
placo did not agreewithiher.
Each dodged the past, not guessing
how glad tho other was to dodge it
also, and they parted forever, polite
ly hoping to meet very soon. That
night two pillows were wet with
tears. Fauny weptjfor the youthful
lover of whose death sho seemed to

for a lost Fauny, now only a mem

to meet agaiu.
There was a certain horror in that

The matter of a successor to Judge
Maxwell, member of the Nebraska
Supremo Court, is receiving consid
erable attention uot only from the
state press but the peoplo as well.
Maxwell, it is remembered, was the
only member of the court who in
terposed an objection to the release
of the cannibal Olive and his gang
of murderers. Whether it was per
sonal courage, an opinion of law m
a sense of justice that inspired the
dissenting opinion, certain it is that
it earned for its author the admira
tion of every good citizen iu the
State. It was a disgrace to Nebras
ka's fair fame that a murder so bru
tal iu its character, and so horrible
and fieudish in its details could be
consummated within her borderu,
but it was a lasting disgrace to her
civilization that the proven and con
victed murderers were sent scotl
free by tho highest court of the
Slate. A legal technicality will not
excuse the act to a justico loving
people ; no interpretation of law that
ignores both common sense aud jus
tice is entitled to rospect. It was
openly charged that Olive, who wae
a wealthy man, obtained his release
through the influeuce of money.
This may have been unjust, but
under tho circumstances it was not
entirely unnatural. No diflicully
was experienced in hanging Kich
ards whose crime was not near so
fieudish but who, fortunately for
the ends of justice, was a poor man.
Society can never be protected so
long as encouragement is given to
lawlessness and crime, and we ven
ture the assertion that Nebraska's
Supreme Court did society a greater
injury in freeing the Olive gang
than can be repaired by fitly right
eous decisions. It is a good si"ii
when you see the peoplo rallying to
the support of good morals and good
government, and it is that sign and
that disposition ou the part of tin
people that is giving Judge Max
well such hearty and valuable sup
port. Schuyler Sim.

Garfield ub tlieHnrlrrerLia
The otlicial report in tho Congres
sional Hocord of Saturday, April 14,
ISVAi, recites that Mr. Garfield, ia
the House of Representatives, after
prayer by Chaplain Boyutoo, moved
to dispense with tho reading of the
Journal, and said : "Mr. Spoaker, I
desire to movo that this IIouso do
now adjourn. Aud before tbo vote
on that motion is taken, I desiro to
say a few words. This day, Mr.
Speaker, will be sadly memorable so
long as this Nation shall eoduro,
which God grant may bo till the
last syllable of recorded time, when
the volume of hutr.an history shall
be sealed up aud delivered to tho
omnipotent Judge. In all future
time, on the recurrence of this day,
( doubt not that the citizens of this
Republic will meet in solemn assem
bly to reflect on the lifo and charac
ter of Abraham 'Lincoln and tho
awful tragic eveut of April 14, 1805
au ovent unparalleled in the his
tory of natiuus, certaiuly unparal
leled iu our own. It is eminently
proper that this House should this
day placo upou its records a memo
rial of that ovent." After a brief
eulogy on the lato President, ami
the pathetic allusion to the circum
stance of his death, Mr. Garfield
concluded : " It was uo one maa
who killed Abraham Lincoln ; it
was the embodied spirit of treason
and slavery, inspired with fearful
aud despairing hate, that struck him
dowu iu the moment of the Nation's
supremest joy. .Ah, sir, (here aro
times iu the history of men aud na
tions when they stand so uear the
veil that separates mortals from tho
immortals, time from eternity, and
men from their God, that they can
almost hear tho boatings and feel
the pulsations of tho heart of tho
Infinite. Through such a timo hart
this Nation passed. When U50.000
bravo spirits passed froui the field
ot honor through that thin veil to
the presence ot God, and when at
last its parting folds admitted tho
martyr Presideut to the company of
the dead heroes of the Republic, the
Nation stood so uear (ho veil that
the whispers of God were hoard by
tho children of men. Awe-strickeu
by his voice, the American peoplo
knelt iu tearful reverence and made
a solemn covenant with him and
each other that this Nation should
be saved from its onemios, that all
its glories should bo restored, and
on the ruins of slavery and treason
the temples of freedom and justico
should be built and should survive
forever. It remains for us, conse
crated by that great event and under
a covenant with God, to keep that
faith to go forward in the great
work until it shall he completed.
Following tho lead of that great
man aud obeying the high behests of
God, let us remember that
'He ha sounded forth a trumpet that
shall never cull retreat;
He Is Hiftlnx "t the hearts of men he
fore His judgment eat.
He swift, my soul, to answer him; he
