How Mlllan Smith AVnn Man-led.
London Topical Times : All visitors to
the "Wild West" tire acquainted with this
remarkable young lady. She anil Miss
Annie Oakley curry the palm between
them as "shootists. " Mfss Smith is of
medium height , ns plump as n partridge ,
and as good natured assho is brisk in her
murry prattle.
"Now , Miss Smith , " I remarked ,
"when I say the word 'go ! ' will you just
start oil'and tell niti IIB much about your
self as you would care to let the public
know ? "
"Certainly ; the public can know all
about mo that it wants. "
"Very well. Are you ready ? flo ! "
"tVefl , 1 guess you know I'm mar
ried ? "
" 1 guess I do. and that Jim Kid is thn
happy possessor of a charming and tal
ented llttlu wifo. "
" ( Jet iilong ! Shall I tell you how I got
married ? "
"Yes , I hhould like to know all about
it. "
"Well , in the lirst place , my parents
were very much averse to my receiving
any attention from thn opposite sex ;
they said I was very much too yotinjr. I
didn't think so. You SPP , .since my birth
1 had always associated with my elders ;
I never had any children playmates , so 1
I suppose J nmy consider myself prema
turely old. Well , now , I'll just take you
Into my confidence. My mother was
determined 1 Hhould not marry anyone ,
and my father seemed to have taken a
decided aversion to 'my Jim. ' They
tried everything to prevent my seeing
him , and I used to worry myself to death
about it. This wits at Erustma , Staten
Island , N. Y. . last August , Hut I soon
hit upon a plan.A .
A SWKIT UUSK.
" 1 suddenly developed a mania for
ice creams , which were sold in camp ,
right below the line of tents , and I used
to bo always down there eating them.
Jim's tout was down at that end and
when my father anil mother thought I
was lllllng up and making myself ill
with creams I used to drop them like a
shot when they'wero ' not looking and
pop into Jim's tent and have a quiet
llirtation. Jim had a boy scout always
ou the watch and when mother or father
was coming down the walk ho would
give a whistle and I would dive into the
leo cream shanty again. This sort of
thing went on until tlio 27th of Septem
ber , when wo made up our minds some
thing had to bo dona. Alt' the camp
knew Hint I was dead in love with Jim ,
and ho with mo. My parents wouldn't
listen to anvthing Jim had to say , so we
had to decide for ourselves. Well , on
this night I got a lady friend to como and
Btay with mo , and it was arranged that
the marriage should take nlaco the next
morning. Duck Taylor had his tent
moved in the opposite direction to mine ,
nnd constituted himself master of the
ceremonies. You will see what he had
his tent moved for. Well , the next morn-
1111 ; , the 28th I shall never forget it as
we wore going to breakfast , my father
caught mo talking to Jim , which nearly
sent him mad ; ho got into a terrible rage
and forbade mo over speaking to Jfm
again. This was very lunny , you will
admit , considering wo were just on the
point of getting married.
UEKOUK TIIK MAUKIAr.K.
"As to Jim , my father said ho would
shoot htm with a shotgun if ho over
caught us together again. Unly fancy ;
and this hardly an hour before ho was
going to take mo for butter or worse ,
Things were getting vorv uncomfortable ,
when Buck Taylor strolled tin and asked
mo to come and look at the nice way in
which ho had tixcd up his tent. Father
lot mo go anil when wo got there we
found Jim and all the cowboys assembled
with the justice in the middle of them ,
nnd ho married us straight away. Just
tnink , it was all over in a minute. We
don't waste much time on the other
Hide , do wo ?
" 1 wont back to my parents anil never
Faid a word. Jim made himself scarce.
I meant to let them ( ind out for themselves -
selves , nud so they did , for the papers
got hold of it and the lirst thing I saw
my father reading the next day was "A
Marriage in Camp. ' There was a scene ,
you bet. My mother said she would kill
herself if it was true , and my father
promptly whisked mo 200 miles away
mom Now York ami put mo in soli
tary confinement , where I remained for
weeks Eventually I got permission to
go out ono day to buy some ribbons , and
I at once took the opportunity of jump
ing on the cars. After about fifty miles
of the journey was done a policeman
came looking into all the cars. My par
ents hud telegraphed to stop mo. tor-
innately a gentleman , who subsequently
turned out to bo a friend of Jim's and ,
strange to say , know me , but I didn't
know htm got hold of the policeman
and told him ho would point out Lillian
Smith ; and when ho came to me ho told
the policeman that I was not a bit like
her , so ho never even asked my name. I
was glad when 1 got to Now lork. I can
toll you. 1 went straight away and
Joined my husband. This was the 22d of
November last , and I was married Sop\
tcmber 2o. Quite a long time back
was't it ? When wo left for England a
reconciliation was effected witli my par
ents , anil wo are all very happy'now. .
You know there is an old saying , "Marry
in haste , repent at leisure. " Old sayings
are not always true , and I have proved
this one to bo so , for I would not part
with my Jim for anything , "

So I quoted to myself the other night
as 1 heard this story. A dozen or so years
ago a young man in llarrisburg was vm-
ployodiis man of all work about lib
t * house. Ho was a comely youth as to face
# " and shape , and he was intelligent. There
- was something in him above the menial ,
nnd , as subsequently transpired , all that
ha wanted was a chance , aud ho would
fo up higher. It happened that in the
gentleman's house was a very prottv
ftughter accomplished and gay ,
quite n society girl , but sensible for
all that. Seeing her every day it was
the most natural thing in the world for
the young fellow tlio "hired man"
to fall 1 in f love with her , and one bright
, , day ho braced himself and told his love
I told her that to him
y "She was the ono and only lady , " . ,
? M ho had said it wKa all his heart , Hut
the clrl was not looklnc with fnvor on
hired men just tbfcn. She was shocked.
"She told her Mre.
The portly squire , "
ixftcr rcprovliiR tlio younc fellow , and
tlio venerable parent tired him. But the
younfj nmn had blood. Ho authored to *
Bother his earthly possessions and faced
toward the west. lie took Orccloy'a ad
vice and landed in ouo of the mining
towns of Colorado. There ho went to
work as n prospector. Do you know
what the life of a proapcctor 'means ? It
means hope deferred it means continual
disappointments hard work , toiling and
digging ntul hunting until death itself
would bo a welcome release.
The young man went through it all
He didn't miss a trick. Manvatimo ho
wanted to lay right down an < "l pass in hw
checks right then and there , but the
sand in him wouldn't let him. He kept
digging away in n perfunctory sort of
way , until one day lie struck pay dirt ,
and all at once ho found himself the
possessor of great riches. Struck It fat ,
just like many another poor devil in tlio
last ditch , lie sold out well , and then sat
down to think. His llrst thoughts were
of the llarrisburg girl who refused him.
Ah , the old lovu WAH still there , brethren ,
still there. Ho resolved to tr.v again.
Gathering together a nice wallet full of
boodle he hied him east , and at last
landed in llarrisburg. The girl ho loved
was still there , but turning the corner of
old maidism. lather was dead , and tliincrf
had not gone right. She was poor. The
young follow hunted her up. There was
a scene that I hope you will not Insist
upon my describing , and last week there
was a quiet wedding that did notgot into
the papers. And tins is why 1 begin this
story witli the quotation from ono of
Joaquin Miller's poems.
Senator llmvloy's Orldc-Kloct.
Philadelphia Times : Social circles ,
not only in 1'lilladolphia , but in Wash-
ingtoti and other cities , have taken a
special interest in the announcement of
the engagement and prospective early
maJriagu of Miss Kdltli A. Horner , of
Philadelphia , to United Status Senator
Joseph U. Hawlcy , of Connecticut. Gen
eral Hawley , who was at the Mead of the
centennial celebration in 1870 in Phila
delphia , has celebrated the constitutional
centennial of 1887 by finding in Philadel
phia the lady who is to share in his fu
ture donors and successes. They met on
shipboard during Miss Hornor's visit to
her relatives in Kngland during the sum
mer , and it was at the constitutional
.celebration festivities of week before
lust that the engagement was ar
ranged and announced. Miss IJornor
will retain her position at the Hloekloy
hospital until Novemberand tlio wedding
will take place soon afterwards. There
are few chapters in real life that surpass
in romance the history of this bravo ,
well-born and well-bred English girl ,
who has devoted so much of Tier life to
the alleviation of human sullering , and
who from a homo of luxury crossed the
sea to enter the pauper hospital of Phila
delphia to help make it a pleasant nur-
sury for the neglected sick of a great ,
citv , and who is now about to wed an
eloquent and honored United Stales sena
tor , the foremost man of his stale.
Miss Kditli A. Homer is now about
thirty years of age , but in consequence
of an active life unit much out-of-door
oxerclso , like most English women , she
docs not look her ago. She is above the
medium height , with a good , rather full
liguro and well poised head. With gray
blue eyes , li lit chestnut hair , slightly in
clined to curl , very pleasing features and
a most charming manner. Miss llorncr
is recognized wherever she goes as an at
tractive English gentlewoman of tlio
highest type.
An Unkind Typewriter CJIrl.
Detroit Free Press : Lawyer Leonard
Swctt , of Chicago , has returned home
from his wedding tour witli his bride ,
who used to bo a typewriter girl in his
ofliee , and they are enjoying the reading
of several hundred letters ot congratula
tion which accumulated during their ab
sence. The gem of the collection is the
following :

San Francisco Report : Johnnie D.
Thompson , clerk in a Montgomery street
clothing house , becoming doperatcly in
love with a Jewish youtitj lady of "this
city , recently married her without his
mother's consent. After the marriage ho
telegraphed her the news , for she was
living in Sacramento. Vowing that she
would never forgive her rash son the
lady arrived at Jackson street wharf
aboard the Apache last night. The
young couple were there to grtiot hor.but
as they wore about to walk aboard the
steamer the escaping steam and dark
ness caused them to miss their footing.
There was a loud splash and the bride
and groom seemed in danger of drown *
injr but the bride is a good swimmerand
while the husband lustily yelled for help
as ho lloundercd about , she grabbed him
by the hair and held him up until assis
tance came. The brave act pacified his
angry mothor-in-lay , and there was a
hearty "God bless you , my children , "
when the wet pair landed.
Itnnlity In Dreninlnnd.
Oakland Tribune : Twenty years ago
a bachelor in Oakland dreamed of visit
ing a family consisting of parents and
two little girls , who were unknown to
him in his waking hours.
From that time forth he continued to
dream of them for a score of years. Ho
saw the children grow from childhood to
womanhood. Ho was present at the
closing exercises when they graduated.
In fact , ho shared all the pleasures and
griefs of this family.
His friendship to the dreamland friends
seemed so real that ho often remarked
that ho felt certain ho would know them
in reality at some future time.
Two months ago he saw in n dream the
husband die , and from that time he
ceased to dream of them for the tlrst
time in n ucriod of twenty years. About
six weeks ago he was astonished at re
ceiving a letter from Now York city , the
writer being the widow of a cousin of
ills , with whom ho had never had any
intercourse since his boyhood , over
thirty years. The widow wrbto that she
wished to make San Francisco her future
homo. After exchanging a few lotrera it
was arranged for him to meet her and
thu two daughters at the Oakland wharf
upon the arrival of an eastern tram on a
certain day. On their arrival imagine his
surprise to see his dream friends. They
were equally so when ho related his
strange series of dreams in which they
ligured. Ho told them incidents con
nected with their past lives which ho
could not have known under ordinary
oircumstaiicos. Ho described their for
mer homo , even to the furniture and
household ormimonts , which was cor
rect in every particular. The sequel is
that hit recently married the widow and
is living happily in this city.

which had neon assigned to the couple.
Not so , however , with the husband. He
proceeded to till up on whisky.
On returning to the hotel the man ac
tually forgot that ho had boon married.
Ho went up to the parlor and sank into a
drunken slumber on the sofa , entirely
forgetting that his young wife was in an
agonizing suspense on account of his not
returning.
Next morning when she learned the
true state of all'airs , she paid the hotel
bill and left the town in disgust , before

Many of the most elegant sets of fine tabla

Ice cream sets nro cither In oblong or
square sh.ipes. . Cream is frequently .served
in long bars , In which case the oblong dish
with square corners Is preferable.
Cut glass Is growing In favor , and Is very

specimens of pressed class that only an ex-

I'Icklo castors and regular castors for sea

Vegetable dishes nro shown in several

for breakfast uses. They hnve covers , nnd

Kerry dishes are shown in Various elegant
decorations , many of them with the kind of
fruit they nro intended to hold , either on the

The foundation of the table service Is laid
by what Is ordinarily known as the Knellsh
dinner set , which may consist ot about 12to
lB ! pieces , accoiding to fancy. To this num
ber Is added every variety and form of dish ,
plain or fancy , that Ingenuity can suggest.
Again , thi ) dinner set ; there nro some hun
dreds of pieces that must bo added to make
up thu fashionable complement.
For breakfast sets there are fruit plates on
which oranges or grapes nio served. Ther.o

Them Is a difference of opinion nstotho
must desirable term for the plates on which

plo insist that the Indented plate with thu
place for each of the oysters Is too much like
the restaurant , and they servo the oystnrs on
a plain plate. This Is , however , a matter of
Individual opinion , and does not prevent
the use of any elegant and costlv oyster

railroad men whoso homes are eituated
within vlow of their passing trains to bo
always on thn platform of the oars and to
salute their wives or other members of

part of their families to bo at the window.
A certain conductor on tlio Delaware ,
Lackawnnna \Vostoru railroad , whoso

AsrATfLA. Lake county , Fin. , Oct 0.--
To the Editor of the liii : : : Having been
a resident of your prosperous city for
some years past , and now a resident of
this state , and having numerous friends
among your readers , who are ignorant
ot the vast and fertile country contained
iu this peninsula , I wish to give them
few facts in regard to our part of the
sunny south , which conies us near being
a poor man's country as it is possible for
any land to be.
Lake county is an offspring of the old
counties of Orange and Sumptor , and is
now only about three months old , but is
taking many steps forward in the line of
advancement.
It is situated in what is known as the
lake region or orange bolt of Florida.com-
moncmg with the St. John river on Lake
George on the norlli and east , extending
bonlli and west embracing the sheets of
water called Lakes Kustls , Dora , Beau-
clairrc , Harris , Ciridin , Lady and little
Lake Harris , with Lake Apopkn , an
inland sea as it can truly be called ,
twenty-nine miles in length and seven
teen in width , aftbrding a protection
from the cold north winds and frost ,
containing as it does , a decidedly fertile
and healthy section ot country.
run ST. JOHNinvr.it
witli its magnificent steamers servo as
ono of the many outlets to the north , and
with live lines of railroad connecting for
all points at Tavares wo find no trou
ble in regard to transnortation , and the
traveler , produccrand business man can-
find ample and good means of trausit for
their lines of merchandise.
Lying directly south of little Lake
Harris" and 'vest of Lake Apopka , wo
lind a continuous chain of high laud or
hills called Apopka mountains.
Standing on the crest of tlio highest we
see some twenty miles to the northwest
the growing city of Lccsburg , nt the head
ot Luke Harris. Then directly in front
we lind the enterprising town of Astatula
looming up out of the pines. To the enst
is seen Tavarus , the great railroad center
of south Florida , and Mount Dora , n
beautiful village , both overlooking Lake
Dora.
On the south we lind the broad expanse
of open county around Lake Apopka.
while in the distant haze the shape and
smoke of two handsome steamers are to
bo seen plowing their way around the
shores , gathering up the products of the
market gardener and orange grower , and
distributing supplies for thu numerous
business houses to bo found at each land
ing.Here
Here on this crest the most fastidious
critic of nature can stop for hours , and ,
resting in the cool shade of the pines ,
fanned by gentle bruozcs wafted from
the gulf and ocean , and when his reverie
is over , ho descends with ever the sumo
conclusion
IT IS COMI'LETK.
Down the mountain side wo wander , at
each turn finding some now BCOUO or
Mower to attract and divert. Through
the Double Hun , with its cool and mossy
banks and lisli innumerable , on through
the dense Hammock , where we lind the
magnolia , sweet , bay palmetto of every
description , and ferns of all varieties ,
from the delicate maiden hair to the
larger varieties , whoso leaves measure
fully six feet to the top. Everything is to
bo found here that is looked upon with
wonder and admiration in thu green
houses and conservatories of the north.
Coming out of the Hammock we pass
through n , bolt of live oajx gnarled and
twisted and into the high pines once
more with fragrant brce/.es blowing the
scent of the sweet bay berries toward us ,
wo arrive at last nt the village of Asta
tula , named very justly from the Seminole -
nole language ( Astatula meaning sun
beams. )
In the evening the sun going to rest
over the western hills sheds Its beams for
miles across the waters of tlio little Lake
Harris , and dirict to the lull ou the cast
side where the town is situated.
This prosoeroiis village , located In the
dense pine and Hammock land , has
steadily improved in spite of the hard
freeze of two years 1120 , and with good
railroad and lake transportation bids fair
to become ouo of the most prominon
towns in south Florida.
Wo Hud hero the rich pine 'and ' of first
grade for orange and other mombnra of
the Cetrus family and thu hammocks
abound with decayed vegetable matter
and nearer the lake the much beds which
are so buneticlal to thu market gardou.
Among the crops that are raised hero
for proht and home use wo lind the
orange , lemon , Jimo shaddock or grape
fruit guava , baunana , pineapple , pinto
poach , LaConto , pear , Japanese persim
mon , Muscatel grape and last but not
by any means lean the strawberry.
people arc giving especial attention to
the following : Corn , cotton , jute , hemp ,
artichoke , asparagus , cassava , tomatoes ,
strinir.and lima beanspoassquash , water
melons ami others of the sumo nature.
Ono of our citizens out trom a Musca
tel grape , two years old tins summer ,
over ono ton of the frtiit.and found ready
sahi for snmo at twelve and a half cunts
per pound. Another picked from a throo-
cur-old Pinto peach tree two and a
nuir bushels of fine grade fruit , and aa
this peach comes in bearing in May the
product linds ready sale at $1J ! per
bushel in Jacksonville ,
Not wishing to weary my friends with
too much of a good thing 1 will simoly
hay. corun down and spend a few week' )
tliis winter with us. and while those gen-
tie forty miles an hour thirty-live below
/ero zephyrs are blowing across the Ne
braska plains , you can pull off your _ coat
and go lishing , or eat oranges with us.
