MILLHEIM PA.. THURSDAY. JULY 21., 1887.
The Strike at Groton
Arethusa Allen was only eighteen when
she came to Grotou (Jorge to take charge of
tlie district school —A slight, dark-eyed slip
of a thing, with a low voice, and such a
shy, timid way, that THE big girls ami the
rolielliouH boys at once juui|ied to the con
clusion that she would IS' conquered at once
iu Iter cap:U i(y of "school-ma'am."
They discovered their mistake, however,
ill a very brief |ieriod of time. Miss Allen
might IS' quiet, hut site had the spirit of a
■ loan of Are. She reduced her little flock to
order, atul she kept them there, too.
Mrs. Itiuns, who presided over the Gorge
House, .ALSO I tore testimony iu bclialf of
A roth una Allen.
"I didn't S'LMISC, when I first seen iter, that
she would amount to A row of plus," said
Mrs. Itiuns, who weighed throe hundred
]siuiids, aud stood live feet eight iu her
Ktoekings. "A slim, school girl-hstkin'
creetur like that ! And I hadn't a room to
spare, and I didn't SIS- how I could itossildy
accommodate her. Hut she s]toko up so
pretty-like, that she Hiulu't no friends aud
did'nt know where to go, so says I : 'IF you
don't miml a room over the laundry, I can
clear out some of the stores and put up a
eot-lssl till the season is over. It's a noisy
place daytimes,' says I, 'with them Chinese
cackling and scrceekiu', hut it's still and
jteaceable of nights. And if you'll help me
make out the hills ami keep the accounts,
Miss Allen,' says I, 'l'll consider it in your
board, for 1 ain't no scholar and never
Mrs. Binns was an ungainly creature to
look at, hut she was as beautiful at heart as
the Venus di Medici's self, and Arethusa
soon felt herself at home in the little room
over the laundry, whose windows looked
out at the thread-like fall of a silver cascade
ami the unfathomable gloom of 'he fir glens
beyond. For Groton Gorge was as lovely a
place as ever leaned from mountain plateau
over the misty valley lielow ; and the Grot
on House was full of city boarders.
Nor was the domestic stall' contemptible.
Mrs. Hinns had all her servants from the
city during the summer season, aud to all
apjiearanees, everything went on velvet.
Until one foggy August morning, when
Mrs. Ilinus awakened to find herself racked
in every joint by acute rheumatism, and ut
terly incapable of moving.
She sent for Mrs. Mackenzie, the cook, to
give the (lay's orders ; hut Mrs. Macken
zie did not wait to hear alsiut roasting
chickens and joints of spring lamb, before
she IS-gan on her own account,
"Sorry to inconvenience you, ma'am,"
said Mrs. Mackenzie, with her arms akim-
IMI ; "but we ladies and gentlemen down
stairs have concluded to ask for an increase
of salary. And until you have conceded to
ttur demands, we shall Im- iiii]M-lbsl to resist
Mrs. Binns o|ieucd her eves w ide.
"Ain't I payin* you good wages al
ready ?" sahl she. "And 1 can't afford to
pay no more — not a cent !"
Mrs. Mackenzie took a roll "of pajer out
of her apron-poeket and ojened it.
"I have here, ma'am," said she, pursing
up her thin lips, "the signatures of all the
ladies and gents at present assistiu' in the
mediterranean rcgises down stairs, inclu
ding the four waiters of the colored gender
ami the two Chinese washer-laundries : and
we won't none of us stay another hour
without you'll agree in arumeuLiry writ in',
ma'am, to raise our salaries."
And Mrs. Mackenzie tossed her head iu
Mrs. Itiuns sank hack on her pillows.
"I can't give no answer," sahl she —'not
with this ] tain iu my bones. Send Miss
Arethusa Allen to me, please."
"GH, certainly, ma'am—certainly !" said
the cook,rising. "Sorry you feel so poorly.
Hut you'll liear in mind, ma'am, that we
shall expect an answer immediate."
And Mrs. Mackenzie withdrew.
Presently Arethusa Allen came in — for,
as it chanced, the district school had closed
a week previously, for the summer vacation
— and found Mrs. Binns disolvcxl in tears.
. "What is it, dear Mrs. Itiuns ?" sahl
"The help has all struck for higher wa
ges I" cried Mrs. Itiuns. "And I'm payin'
'em more than I can afford now. And all
the prices of provisions have riz, and I may
as well close the place at once. Oh, Are
thusa, my head aches so 1 can't think I
What shall I do ? Tell me — there's a
"Nothing," said Arethusa, quietly. "Just

"Hut the lmardcrs and the dinner ?"
"I'll see to that," sahl Aretliusa. "Trust
me, and all shall be right. Those people
down stairs have lieen growing idler, and
more domineering and inefficient, every
day ; and now they want yon to pay them
more money for doing less work. There
must Itc an end to this. You will empower
me with full authority !"
Mrs, Hinns sent for the cook.
"Mrs. Mackenzie," said she, "I am too
sick to parley with you, hut Miss Allen will
represent me fully. What she says, I
And she lay down ami turned her face to
the wall, with shut eyes, as if "he washed
iter hands of the whole concern ; w hile Mrs.
Mackenzie bridled ami turned to the slim
young schist! teacher, who in her heart she
secretly despised "as no lietter than a ser
vant herself, with all them airs and graces
"Well, Miss Allen, said she, "what's
your mind on the subject ? The sooner tbe
question is settled the ltotter for all parties.
We ain't going to stand her imposition !"
Whatever idea Arethusa might have cn
tcrLiincd as to A-compromise was thorough
ly banished by the cool insolence of the last
"Yon may go," said she.
"Hey ?" said Mrs. Mackenzie, bristling
up like a setting lien.
"I decline to entertain your proposal,"
said Arethusa, calmly. "Pack up your
things, all of you, and the lionst? at once.
If you are cxpe-ditious, you may succeed In

And she paid their wages, out of Mrs.
Binu'S cherry-wood secretary, and dis
charged them, as the good lady afterward
remarked, "liorse, foot and dragoons."
Then she called a convention of the hoard
ers, and told the tale.
"If you won't mind a dinner of cold lamb
and lettuce to-day," said she, "with a des
sert of snow-pudding that I can wake my-

HehiMil-mit'iim's worst enemy at lirst and
her most faithful ally ever afterward.
"Mrs. Ileasely," said Arethusa, "I want
to lmrrow your two daughters !"
"Jtless me, Miss Aretluisa !" said the
GIHHL woman, "what for ?"
"To help me at the (Jorge house !" aud
Arethusa told her story. "Joanna ami

"They'd oblige you, Miss Arethusa,
cheerfully, w ithout a cent," said Mrs. DEAS
"They w ill oblige me more by accepting
a suitable remuneration," said Arethusa.
"At this stage of the world, everything is
worth its money value, yon know. What
say you, girls ! Will you go ?"
"And welcome," said Fanny.
"If we can learn the business," said Jo
anna, who was shyer, and more distrustful
'l'll make it my business to instruct
you," said Arethusa, brightly. "Pack up
your things. ITC ready to jump into the
wagon when I come back."
"Can't 1 do uothiug Miss ALLCU ?" suid
big Junius, w istfully.
"1 am going to get Susan Rich to do the
washing," said Arethusa. "If you would
turn the handle for l>.;-r sometimes —"
"I'll turn It ftpom now till doomsday, if
it'll help you, Miss Allen," said Junius.
Susan ain't half a HAD girl, neither, if she
didn't chuff a fellow so."
"Thank you, Junius," said Miss Allen.
"You will oblige me very much, iudeed."
Mrs. Ridley, who hud once been liouse
keejtcr iu a grand Pouglikeepsie family,and
now LIV<SL on her interest money, volun
teered as cook, with the assistance of Mar

"Oh, Mr. Sevier, how can I ever thauk

known how to manage this I>ortiou of her
"I)o not try," said Mark, gaily.

In 1 mm, n year before the war, a party of
Northern Illinois hunterslibsltheniaelvoa to

asked the cross-eyed man as he put down

of ill-humor to his tone.

Abe reflected a minute, and with 'That's
a whopper, isn't it, gentlemen ?' he invited
the whole party iu to the bar to take some

Tin- criminal classes iu Mexico are among
the most accomplished artists in their line
to be found anywhere on the face of the
earth, and possess, moreover, a marvellous
power of simulating innocence, which ena

great advantage in securing situations as
servants, in which capacity they find ample

in thieving and discharge or puuish them
their vindictments knows no bounds, and
they will boldly threaten future vengeance.
Nor are they slow in concocting Bchemes to

you are returning from the opera, humming

your devoted head, or, worse yet, by the
keen thrust of a naliaja into the back of
your claw-hammer coat just between the
shoulders. If you be not killed outright

THK FEMALE DETECTIVES,
How They are Used In Secret Polled
Ao old chief in the detective service
in this and many other states, told one
of onr reporters, yesterday, that the
Pinkerton national dctectivo agency
was now employing a great many
women as operatives, often sending
them as far as New Mexico and the
far southwest to get evidence of the
most difficult nature to ascertain. He
says, in fact, that the Pinkertons have
found, in their long experience in this
business,that there are many cases
in which the patient search, untiring
energy, and almost fruitless sagacity
of the most experienced detectives a
vail nothing while an experienced
woman operative, with the use of a
little tact and finesse, can readily as.
certain the clew and proof desired. %
Tbe methods of female detectives
vary entirely with tbe circumstances
surrounding tbe case, and none but
those who have been thoroughly tried
and proven are ever employed by the
Pinkertons. "Now," said tbe old
chief,"speaking on the subject reminds
me of somethiog I have to laugh
about. There was in tbe city a short
time since, a lady who called herself
if I remember aright, Angeline St.
Cyr, or something of that sort. She
was dressed to & queen's taste and
wore a pair of $2,000 diamond ear
drops, and jewelry enough to show
she bad plenty of money at ber com
mand. She had a handsome figure,
and ber clothes fitted so elegantly,
and she dressed in such perfect taste,
that no one who saw her dcubted that
she was some wealthy gentleman's
daughter. She boarded at a quiet
house oo one of tbe sides of the streets
with a highly respectable family, and
conducted herself io tbe most ladylike
manner, observing all tbe proprieties.
"What I am going to tell yon now
will cause an interest to be taken in
the matter locally, for there are many
in this city who will recognise the
portrait of Miss Angeline St Cyr:
She was a very tall, stylish young
lady, wore a profusion of bangs and
back bair, bonnet of tbe small close
fitting variety, and was generally
dressed for tbe street in a French gray
silk walking dress, and tippet or cape
(ldon'tknow the name of it exactly,)
that seemed to consist almost entirely
of jet beads. She generally carried a
large poeketbook in ber band, or wore
it swung around ber shoulders with a

this lady well, will read 'this article,
and if any one of them ever ascertained
her business in Nashville, or saw her
do anything unbecoming a perfect
lady, I would be surprised to hear it;
and yet I had enough business with
her to know just about what she was
doing. Notwithstanding this, she
came here in the employment of some
very prominent parties, got the in
formation she desired, communicated
ber progress to the employer from day
to day, and when she left here kissed
&U ber lady friends goodbye, telling
them she was going to Chicago.
Tbey have never heard from her since
and never will, unless in the coarse of
ber employment she is sent here a
' I understood,'* said the old chief
"tbat she got SBOOO reward, io addi

for the job, and I don't believe there

A Singular Circumstance.
"The most singular case of deafness
I've ever had anything to do with,"
said the family physician, "is that of a
woman up on a Fremont Place. She
has such a frightful noise in her head
that she can't hear a thing except
when she's in a herdic.when tbe rattle
of the vehicle sort of drowns tbe noise
in her head, and she can then hear as
well as ever She observed this pe
culiarity of ber affliction,and what did
she do the other night but bring home
a watchman's rattle and a pair of
cymbals. She didn't say anything
until ber husband came home and sat
down to dinner. He began to ask
tbe blessing, and she wishing to bear
his remarks began to bang away on
the cymbals. He stopped right in
the midst of his devotions, and asked
her wratbfully if she was craty, to
which she responded by whooping It
up a little louder, whereupon be rush
ed over to my house and said bis wife
was a raving lunatic. I went back
with bim to try and fix up matters,
but just as soon as I opened my
mouth she let fly with the watchman's
rattle. The outcome of it is tbat my
friend gets his meals down town and
spends his evenings at the City Club,
while his wife, armed with her orches
tra, goes calling on her neighbors,
and fools the children into belieying
that the circns Las come again."—
