"Well , of all thlngsl" cried Mm. Uraxton ,
when she had finished reading tlio letter.
"What brlngn her down here at this tlmo of
lTWcll I wbu'dn't flrd fnult with her las c
eixltl Mr. nrnxton , drily. "ScemR to mo that
( ho Derkshlro hills arc not to be despised ,
cummer or winter , let a'.ono In the fill.
Wo'vo lived hero pretty comfortably , Sally ,
for nigh onto fifty years. And , besides , I
reckon wo might give Jessie n welcome , no
matter what's the Reason. "
"Now , father , " responded the good hoiinc-
wife , reproachfully , "you know very well 1
didn't mean anything of that sort. IHa you
must odmlt that It Is odd for a girl like
Jccalo Ucauchnmp to leave the city In Octo
ber and bury herself In the country. Of
course wo will give her a welcome , and It
will bo lots of company for Nellie mid Sue ,
but nil the sumo I'm bothered to know the
cause. 0 , you needn't laugh. You men are
dumb as Idloto When It comes to BtudylnR
womankind. No , 1 don't believe she la sick ,
or else fthc'd have said so. She's outspoken
as the day. "
"Then sho'll tell you the secret first thins ,
Raid the farmer with a sly twinkle In his
eyes. "An for mo , I'm going to believe that
shu In coming here just for a breath of fresh
nlr and a. gllinpflc at plain people once more. "
When Abncr nraxton met Jessie nt the
elation the next day and helped her Into the
can-jail he wrs more than ever Inclined to
think that she needed fresh air. "Handsome
an a peach , " tm he expressed It , but lacking
the bloom of the peach on her clear cut f.ico ,
If you ibrcatho a word of what I've bqon
dlro dismay. "Jcs le will never forgive you ,
hasn't told me anything ; 1'vo Just sensed
It. Hut she will tell ; glrle can never keep
that kind of a tec ret. Hut , mind you , keep
quiet. "
Mother nraxton showed her knowledge of
human nature thai Is , of feminine tature.
Only two days later elio confided to her
husband ait explanation , that shed light on
the mystery.
"Jesslo told Sue In the strictest confi
dence '
"Then how did you-know It ? " demanded
Mr. Hraxton.
"Well , Abner Hraxton , you do beat nil ! "
cxcMlmcd Airs. Hraxton. "Of course there
ain't any .harm In a girl telling a secret
that another tcld her. Now , If It wes a man
that would be different. "
"Would It1 asked Abncr , considerably
mystified. '
"Why , certainly. Hut land salccs , do yoii
want to hear the-sjory or don't you ? "Well ,
Jessie hos had a falling out with her beau. "
. "Sho ! Is that all ? Beaux ought to be
plenty cnoughUb a fine , handsome girl like
Jessie. I Wouldn't bother my head over
that. " .
"Itccaii'o jcu don't know what you're
talking nboutK You do provoke me some
times. ThlsTwaS' a. real beau , and not one
of those fllrtatl.-n fellows you read about ,
and now thatMiho has lost him she Is just
breaking her-Jieart-over it. They had same
sort of a llarc uj ) , about nothing I dare say ,
and ho wcn.f off one wny and she the
other , "
and I'm sure But there ! you never could be
so hatefull"
Abner laughed a great , good-natured laugh ,
whlcli relieved hts vlfo , If It did not
thoroughly convince her Hut she made an
llcvcd In eucli a fate ? Except , t > srh pn , Je slo
lUuuchainp. Within the past month she hud
told herself thirty llmok tbat she would
never marry at all , and her only doubts were
as to whether she would bo a sweet old
maiden lady In a white cap or fro on the
lecture stage and have "a mission. " Life
was so very dull and stale , And how people
could find amusement In It wan A wonder.
She tried her boat to be agreeable for fear
they would think she was haughty , but she
iis much relieved when the last visitor said
good night.
"Arc you going to try the charm of the
mirror ? " asked Sue , ns these two stood In
the hall before mounting the stairs to bed.
"I am I'm not afraid ; are you ? "
Before Jesilo could answer Sue was up
the Blairs and out of sight She smllc.l
faintly as she took up the candle that stool
on the old mahogany table and lighted It. As
she did so she unconsciously looked Into the
minor and sighed as she noted the paleness
of her face , .
"Ah. If looking In the glass would bring
mo back my own true love , " she cald softly
to herself , "how long would I look ! As long
as this Candle burned ? Ah , If there WAS nn >
truth In "
She caught her heart In her hand and thr
white face turned whiter. It must be 1m-
aslrat on. ttid yet surely that was a man's
fae Ve.'lcctcd In the mirror ! It was a fioalUli'
si'ijeistltlon lice nerves had been unstrung
perhaps It was a sign that her mind was
giving way from grief. No ! Surely , U was a
face In the glass , and She turned with a
scream on her lips and was clasped In the
arms erf a man.
Only for an Instant ; then she threw him
oft Indignantly.
"You ! " she cried , sharply. "How ddre
you ? "
"How Uaro I present myself to you ? " he
cald. "Uecnusc I have a perfect rlgM. I am
your true love. Jessie. "
"Frank , " she sobbed , "If I could only
think so. Hut you must know what Mrs.
Carter Eald , ahd how you acted when "
"Mrs. Carter Is old "
an busybody , ho In
terrupted , "but she Is honest enough to toll
you that she was entirely mistaken. And
I never acted In any but an honcrable way
with Miss Earlc , as you might have easily
discovered If you had given mo a chance to
explain. Hut you sent back my letters and
refused to see mo , and Jecsle , the whole
miserable affair Is a misunderstanding that 1
Baying I'll never speak to you again. She
and with something of a faded look In her
Bparkltng ojes. Uven In hei talk , once al-
ivajB brilliant , now marked by strange lapses
of alienee , her uncle noticed a difference.
"On the go , I suppose , " ho said , pitying y ,
"and dead tired of prancing around at bills
anil partlm all night and playing games all
day , Nolllu and Sue niu hankering to go to
town next year th's winter , but I dunno.
It's all vanity , I reckon. "
"They would enjoy themselves. I'm suro.

cannot expect glrlu to bo contented without
leelng the world. As for me " She checked
lirrtelf pud began to ask questions without
number about all the folkH In the neighbor
hood with whom olio had inado acquaintance
twp years before.
"There's something on her mind , mother , "
eald Mr , Hraxton , that night , when the girls
Imd gone to bed and Mrs , Praxton was sct-
ttas the lire-ad for the next morning's bik
ing. "I declare , I never mw such a change.
Do you suppose fhaVi got anything fatal ? "
"Go long with you , you goose , " laughed
bis wife. "If jou didn't know anything
more nbout farming tlmiv jou do about girls
we'd be In the poor house long ago , "
This was ambiguous and not satisfying.
" More than once i'ncle Abncr was on tlio
point of calling the doctor on bin own re
sponsibility to visit Jtvile It did not ECCIU
possible that a girl In good hoiltli could to
go palp and ttiow such lack of Interest In her
surroundings without cause. He kept harpIng -
Ing on this strain until Mrs , Hraxton lost
her patience and b'.urted out :
"You tt'cm to have loot all the seiiso you
over had , Abner. Can't you see that tlio
girl Is In love ? "
"In love ? Fiddlesticks ! " retorted Abner.
' 'You was In love with me once , at lean you
Mid so. but I dldu't notice tbit you pitied
away any on It. "
"There wasn't any reason , I knew you
wcro dying for me , and there warn t any
chance of another girl getting you , "
"Hn ! So Uiero'H another girl got her beau ,
U there ? "
"Tlicio you go ; jumping at conclusions !
Who cald there war" another glil ? Couldn't
theru have been a tailing out without - another
other girl ? "
"Not very well. Unless there's another
fellow after her Maybe that's It ? '
"Mercy ou the man ! How ho goes on !
I'm almort sorry I told you anything , and
"And elio came down hero to forget all
about him , and she can't. That's a line
Btory , " said Mr , Draxtou , derisively. "I
could BCttlo that affair In twenty-four hours.
I'd just bring both Iheco young folks to
gether , lock them up In a room , and "
"Abner Hraxton , don't' you dare Interfere
V this thing , " cried the good dame , la
inn.inl rcbolve tliat bho would keep her news
to herself hurealter.
Meanvhllo she was pleased to notice a
sllgbt Improvement In her niece. Jesslo
was a trlllo more lively In conversation , and
. 'ot to much Inclined to go to bed with a
headache right after supper. She even
appeared to take come Blight Interest In the
visitors that wore so frequent In the Ilraxtrn
bonuetcad. Therefore , Mrs. Braxton WUH
not entirely surprised when Jctslo gave a
languid arqiilcs.Jc.sre- the project for a
Halloween narty xit the house.
"You needn't' take nny part unless you
like , " said" ? lie , who was half afraid of her
city cousin. '
"It won't hurt her to have a llttlo old-
fashlorcd fun for'cne night , " said Uncle
Abner , bluntly,1 and- Jessie mulled as-

When the night came there must have
been three dozen young folks In the big
kitchen , ; \it ! | Uncle Abncr as master of ceremonies - i

but when It'camo to going out and isowliig

cellar with only a single candle to dispel the
gloom , or any other of the "erectly" tests of
courage or credulity , It was the general
opinion that such actlcns were "Billy. "
"You are a poor lot , " said Uncle Abner.
with his tuBlrttnaryfrankness , "When I wau

"Sho ought' to knr < w what that nieiiia ;

There was an Incredulous laugh at this
warning Wbftt glri la bcr teens ever le-

heirt , you know that jou want it cleared up
as much as I do ! "
This time he out his arm around her with
out resistance and was about to roeak when
Uocio AbncT made his appearance from some
where In a state of great ( surprise.
"The Idea ! " said that worthy gentleman.
"Why , if It ain't Mr. Oavldge ! How did you
get here at this time of night ? However ,
you're welcome ; only as It's midnight It
wouldn't be a bad notion It you went t ,

In the morning. "
"Thank yon , " Isughed the young man.
"I'm not at all sleepy , but It Isn't fair to
keep you up , so I'll adopt your suggestion ,
If you will show me my room. Goodnight
Jessie. "
She detained him for an Instant. "I didn't
know that you end Uncle Abner were

"Didn t you ? 0-yes ; he la the beat

Uncle Abner waa busy polishing his eye

Mr. Davldge pressed her hand as he bad :
her good night ngaln.
Nor , strange to cuy , did he pay any at
tention to the many close conferences held
by JcEfile and Frank on the following day ,
and not once did lie offer to ehow him th < -
fine cows , hheep and horses of which he was
so justly proud.
Mrs. Hraxton was In high spirits over the
vkrit of Mr. Davldge , bud exceedingly mysti
fied withal. At dinner she tried to estc'.i
her husband's eye In vain , and not until1 she
bid him cornered that night In bed did she
succeed In having her say.
"I raw you and Sue winking at each other
three times today , " she declared. "Do you
know anything about this mysterious ar
rival ? You've liecii up to something , Abncr
Hraxton , and don't deny It' "
Hut the only reply he made was to re
mark , with real or assumed sleepiness , that
old men occasionally knew a thing or two
about straightening out lovers' quarrels.
And then she fancied that she heard a
chuckle but It may have been only on In

The death of Charles A. Dana recalls lethe
the older newspaper correspondents In
Washington a characteristic Incident of hlk
career , lu the .t < tgilta of 1S72-T3 congnea
passed a tow calculated to restrain what ttiu
statesmen of that.period , were , wont to term
"tho llconse of'spoclal correspondents" al
the national capltol.i This bill was Introduced
by Congressman I.uko P. Poland of Ver
mont , nnd wao kaown as "the Poland gag
law. "
Its Intent -was to.make Washington corrc-
cpoudents liable-to iprosecutlon In the courts
of the District ot' Columbia for Alleged
libelous matter written In the district and
forwarded for publication anywhere In thb
United States , by either mall or telegraph ;
also to make editors of papers all over tht
union liable to prosecution' In the Washing
ton , courts for alleged libels published dnj-
where ccncernlnG national officeholders at the

spring of 1871 , relates the Philadelphia
A. C. Quell , for the last thirteen , or four
teen j'cars In the employ ot Cramp , but then
Washington correspondent of the Missouri
Republican , and Detroit Free Press and an
editorial writer for Donn Plait's Sunday
Capital , sent a ppetlal1 telegram to the Frco
Press stating that Senator Kacharlah Chand
ler of .Michigan lud "appeared on the floor
of the senate In > i stale of beastly Intoxica
tion , hail been led away by Senator Malt
Carpenter of Wisconsin nnd other frlwtli. ' ,
anil put to sleep on n lounge In the room , ol
the sc'iiato committee fa finance , ' ' of which
John Sherman , now secretary of state , was
then , chairman.
. Ono of the amusing things about this , wau
that Buell did not write a line of the special
himself. Part of H was written by Ilcnrj
II. Smith , thea clerk of the claims commlt-
tco of thn house and since journal clerk ot-
thai body , and deputy resistor ot the trca. .
ury , anil part by cx-Ccngrcssinau John V.
Diiggs of the Saginaw district of Michigan
All lhat Buell did was lo file the manuscript
of Smith and Drlggs In the Western Union
telesaph ! olllce at Pcnnsjlvanla avenue and
Fourteenth street. It is said that this his
toric special was scut over the wirco by Wil
liam A. Conner , row urciager of the Asso
ciated Press in Philadelphia , then a ypung
operator for the Associated Press In its
Washington oincc.
The publication of' lhs ! dlspalch In Michi
gan was extremely disagreeable to Senitoi
Chandler , who was thoa a o udldate for re
election , and It undoubtedly contributed
largely to hla defeat the next winter , when
Isaac P. Christlancy was elected to the
senate la lib stead.
As soon as copies of the Free Press cra-
taitilng this dispatch reached Washington
a warrant for Buell s arrest on chaigc of
criminal llcclvan twora out under UK
Poland esp law. the comptuin'rig witnesses
being Senators Zacharlah Chandler of Michi
gan and Jvtn Sherman of Ohio. On this
warrant Duell was arrested at the Ebbltt
house , where lie boarded , just at > ho was
going In to supper , the -arrest being made ,
by Detective Johai Sargent of the dlstrlci j
police. '
This occurred on Saturday , between 10 and
11 o'clock p. m. , and It was the evident
Intention to jail Buell over Sunday. Uut
borne of his frlcnda General II. V. Uoynton ,
Samuel Medlll 'and Wilson'J. Vanoo Jof the
Cincinnati Gazette ; Chicago Tribune and
Cincinnati Commercial , respectively had
v.umed him beforehand , so tbat he was ready
with ball even at that late hour. His bonds
men for appearance before Police Justice
Snoll at 10 o'clock Monday morning were
Alexander R. Shupherd. governor of the Dis
trict of Columbia ; Hallett Kllbourne and
Donn Piatt.
Released about midnight on the recog
nizance of these gentlemen , Huell his
way rejoicing , l The next morning Donn
Piatt mid In the-Capital that "It was much
easier to bail IlublUout than It would be tc-
bale Zaclf Chandler-lout. "
Of course this arrtwt under the Poland gag
law was the topic i of Newspaper Row that
night and every paper of any account in
the L'ulon had all the details of it ,
Aibout 4 o'clock the next day ( Sunday ) a
special messenger from Now York found
Huell at the Ebbltt house , and handed him a
letter , of which the following Is In part a
copy :
"I have heard the story of your arrest
you stand row to represent Iho freedom , of
the press and of speech In this country. You
are destined to teat the gag law. Don't
worrj- . Appear In the police court Monday
morning. Don't trouble yourself about coun
sel. I am airanging that now. All you have
to do Is keep a stiff upper lip. * * '
Don't entertain any overtures that may be
iniyle to you looking to retraction or com
promise. Stand pat and stay with them to
the finish. I will BCD you throug'.i.
"C. A. DANiA. "
When 10 o'clock Moncay morning came
Duell appeared In the dock of Judge Snell's
police court. At the tame time appeared
General William Dirney of Washington us
counsel of record , and Jeremiah S. Black of
Pennsylvania and Montgomery Ulalr of Mary-
laud as advisory counsel. No sMii array of
legal talent had over before bcclr seen in a
police court.
General Dlrncy took an appeal "from the
police court on ground of want of jurisdiction
which Jollco Judge Sncll at once granted
and the case was certified to the crlmlna
court of the District of Columbia ,
Fiom the criminal court Judge Black conn
scloJ a writ to the supreme court of the
district , for the purpose of arguing certain
conatltutlonal questions. T.ils writ wa
giuntcd and the case \\cnt to the suprom
court of the district , nnd that court , Chic.
Justice Carter and Justices MacArthur anil
Wyllo sitting , declined to pass on the con
atltutlonallty of the Poland gag law , but die
decide that JlucH'B crime. If crime at all
was not cognizable by the police court , bu
subject to the action ot tbo grand jury , be
causa It was "a heinous offense , punlshabli
under the laws then In force In the dlstrlc
( the Maryland law adopted In hulk In 1S03.
by such ponaltleB as Imprisonment for ono
year , flno of 1,000 pounds nf.tobacco , standing
In the pillory and In cxtremo cases , In tbo
discretion of thu court , slitting of the cars , "
The grand jury not being then In session
Buell was held for the next term , his police
court bandsmen remaining holden Governor
Shepherd , Hallett Kllbourne and Donn Plutt ,
Mr. Dana then wrote him another letter ,
this time not'by special messenger , but by
mall. In It ho gald :
"Go back to St. Lulls before the grand'
Jury acts on your case , You have nw
tested to destruction the police court feature
of the Poland law. The grand Jury will
surely Indict you. If you are In St. Louis
when that occurs the district authorities will
attempt to bring you back on a requisition
through tbo Unltod States marshal at St.
Louis. That will j make an opportunity'to
test on habeas corpus the extradition or
tcndltlon feature of the Poland law. Such
a proceeding will Urlng you Into the United
States circuit court at Si. Louis , where the
matter will bo dealt with by Circuit Judge
Dillon and District ! Judge Treat , both great
and upright jurists ) I do net know how you
are situated , but if follcwlng my advice
should cause you any financial InconvenleDo ,
draw on me. "
TMs envelope enclosed Mr. Dana's persona )
check for a eoresderable turn , though he
mada no roferenroito It In the letter. Buell
remained In Washington uctll about week
before the next , term of court when ho
went to St. L-mls , 'being recalled by William
Iydc | , then editor of the Mlstourl Republican ,
who assigned him -to duty as night editor.
The first indictment returned by Iho grand
jury of tbo criminal court of the District of
Columbia at that term was against Augustus
< C. Buell for libel upon Zacbarlab Chandler ,
the complaining witnesses being Chandler ,
John Sherman and Thomas Reese.

As a matter of fact , Buell was not deprived

It happened , however , that Judge Dillon
had rendered the opinion In cxtcnso extern-
pomneously. having at the moment only co
pious notes. Subsequently ho wrote It out In
full , when Mr. Daru printed It In the Sun.
The advocates of the Poland law wanted U
take the case to the supreme court of tht
United States , but President Grant said there
had been enough nonsense about 41 and dl
rooted the attorney general to discountenance
further proceeding. The Indictment In the
cilmlnal court of the District of Columblu
remained In effect , however.
When congress reassembled in December
Huell returned to Washington to resume
work as a correspondent. The first thing he

Judge Mae-Arthur Invited Buell to sit
with them.
Dutlng and after the meal the judge and
Senator Carpenter discussed the case In all
Its bearings , and they agreed It would bi
useless to pursue the procedure. In tlu
course of the discussion Jiulye MacArthui
said : "It Is not worth while to debate ilic
Poland law on Us constitutional merits , be
cause every newspaper of every party In- the
country is agafnst It ! No ccurt can alllrn.
and no tribunal can enforce In this countr >
any law which the press unanimously con
demns. "
Ho then told Buell to come into open coun
the next morning , surrender as a matter o
form and glvo bail , saying that ho would' '
fix the bond at $2,500. The bondsmen wen
General H. V. Boynton and the late Georg. .
W. Adams of the Washington Star. Buch
remained In Washington from that time until
1891' , when ho removed to Philadelphia. But
the case was never called. Four years arier-
ward , when Colonel Corklilll was appointed
district attorney , he entered a nolle proscqui ,
and that was the end of the attempt to muz
zle the American press through gag laws.
This prolonged , Intricate and necessarllj
expensive litigation gave the visible defenrt-
ant , Buell , llttlo trouble and cost him iiu
money. Whatever expense he may have
Incurred from time to time was reimbursed
to him by Mr. Dana , who throughout man
aged the case , directed the procedure ana
employed the most eminent available coun
sel. Other prominent journalists who real-
izeil th < importance , of the issue , and knew
whal Mr. Dana was doing , offered to share
the trouble and expense with him ; but he
declined. Among these was the late Samuel
Bowles of the Springfield Republican.
Mr. Dana thanked him and said : "I can
do better alone. I have a capital subject
In Buell'for such a legal clinic as this is
and that IB all I want. Buell Is young , has
no family ties , likes celebrity , has been a
regular soldier , and Is gritty. An older man
or one 'with more prudence might break the
case 'down by a retraction < 3r a compromise ,
but Buell wjll stay to the end , and that Is
the kind ot a defendant this case needs. "

'Wo ' could not say too much In favor of
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy. About three
years ago ono ot our children had an attack
of croup and we were afraid thai we would
lose him. Seeing Chamberlain's Cough
Remedy , advertised , we decided to glvo it a
trial. It gave almost Instant relief and we
believe It saved the child's lite. Since then1
wo have never been without a bottle of this
rcjnedy In the house and we recommend it
to every one "as being an honest cough re-m-

It CiiHtN , to ! ! < I/iinl 51 ay or of
, The expenditures for subscriptions and en
tertainment arc largely In excess , of the
salary and official allowances , writes the Lon
don correspondent of the New York Tribune.
It costs every lord mayor anywhere from
10,000 ( $50,000) ) to 20,000 (5100,000) ( ) to occupy
the office. The. outgoing lord mayor , Sir
George Faudel-Phlllps , has probably spent
fiom 25,000 ( $126,000) ) to 30,000 ( $150,000) ) In
excess of his salary and allowances. He ha
taken charge of the Indian famine relict
fund and many of the jubllco funds , and
has 'been the patron of all the charities , dur
ing an "annus mlrabllls" of subscription lists
and systematic codglng. He has subscribed
liberally to every fund. Ills gracious hospi
tality has 'been ' enjoyed by thousands of ju
bilee guests at the .Mansion House. The last
year has been an exceptional one , but the
olilco la always a costly one. Whoever ac
cepts It expects 'to ' pay heavily for the honor.
No lord mayor ever emerges from otllco
without being out nt least 10,000 ( ? uO,000) )
poorer for the experience , but the honor
of knighthood Is Invariably bestowed upon
him , and his wlfo enjoys the distinction ot
being addressed as Lady So-and-So. No
alderman who has passed the chair ever
returns to It. Re-election to the office never
occurs. No alderman Is willing to pay the
tolls twice. He might be , It ho could gel
a peerage for a second term ,
The election of the lord mayor Is a bur
lesque performance , with touches of me
diaeval mummery , like the November pro
cession , with Its tinsel splendors and gro
tefiquo pageantry. Half a dozen ox-sheriffs
have an Informal conference , nnd ono of'
them agues to take the olTlco and to pay
the costs for a year. The common crier , the
recorder , the common sergeant , the mace
bearers. , the sword bearers and the chaplains
apppcar for dress parade , and a small kn t
of liverymen gives assent. The lord mayor
IB elected by representatives of the liveried
guilds and ho exercises jurisdiction over a
square mile of 4crrliory with a resident popu
lation of 35,000. The Greater London , with
its 700 square miles and 7,000,000 resldcms
a world within Itself has no executive heat !
and no centralized system of government
Iti \ the center cf a world-wide empire , yet
It Is an anomalous jumble of "disjected
provinces" without unity of action or enlight
ened and progressive municipal policies , The
modern art of municipal government can
offer no more startling contrast than that
between the choice of the lrd mayor o
London by half a dozen rich gentlemen , who
have been sheriff , and the popular eleotloa
of a municipal dictator for Greater New
For Jnfanti and Children.
