Bang! bang! goes the carbinis,and clash

Through the smoke and horses he's In

Out in Mis?ourl lives n Mrs. Hemp
dale, who has or had a daughter named
Laura, who loved n mini named Jack.
This man Jack she didn't llko, but was
informed by a neighbor that Jack nnd
Laura bad arranged a plan of elope
ment. Her mind was quickly mado up. Sho
announced to Laura tho next morning
that sho was going to Bellvlllo on a vis
it, to be gone threo days, and that she
must bo a good girl, nnd not tear tho
hoiis.0 down while sho was gone.
That night Jack kniyv of it, and ns
ho rend that nice llttlo noto thnt bade
him come over nnd stay until mother
comts home, and what u splendid time
we will have, ho smiled, knocked the
nshoj off his cigar, nnd resolved on tho
course he would pursue.
Jack went over, but thero is no earth
ly use in attempting to describe tho
delcctablo thtngs ho enjoyed ; it was a
sugar season at that plantation, sure.
Just before dutk, while Jack was run
ning over full of the occasion, In rushes
Laura's wulting woman with,
"Lor bress uie, ehil'u, or yer iiint
"My Gud I Dinah, what shall wo do
"Pop him in de closet, Miss Laura,"
and Jack was popped In the closet In a
twinkling or nn eye.
In stalked the old lady, who sharply
scrutinizing tho disconcerted and blush,
ing countenance of Laura, feltsuro that
Jack had been there.
'Como here, Laura. Now you can't
deceive me. That abominnblo Plnnie
lias been here, and you and ho have tlx
ed uprn a runaway match to como off
to-night; I know you set."
Laura was silent, tint! tho old lady
"But you'll find your mother Is no
fool, and too sharp for you my lady.
Sooner than you should marry that
miserable Jack Plnlne, I'd see you laid
in your grave. He Is not going to
squander toy money I assure you.1'
The old lady rose, und going to a
clothes pree.s returned with several com
furls aud it pillow.
Then walking up to tho closet whero
Jack was concealed, threw them in and
said to Laura.
"Now march In hero Miss, step along;
I'll look out that you don't see that
low-born mechanic tills night."
L'iiirn protested that she did not want
to, declaring that her mother might be
sorry for it some day.
But without payiutr any attention,
her mother gave her n push, shut the
door nnd locked it put tho key in her
pocket and went to bed.
Early In the morning tho old lady
arose, and without waiting to dress
took the key from her pocket and open
ed tho closet door to bid Laura come
forth, gnzed wildly for nn instant nnd
utterrcd a most piercing scream.
Becovering very rapidly, she started
away from tho door nnd e.illed faintly
to Laura :
"Lnura, dear, go into tho kitchen nnd
see about breakfast."
"Jack, I say Jack."
Jack came forth with n F-on-in-law
looking nlr, and answered:
"Well, madnine, what is it?"
"Do you know anything about a
farm?" said sho.
"Nothing to brag of, ma'am," paid
"Well, ot any rate, Jack, I think that
nfter breakfast you nnd Laura may ns
well go down to tho city nnd get mar
ried, for I am tired of watching you
'Fuaid 'Twouidn't Hold Out. A
passenger on the Llttlo Miami liailrond
Lightning Exprios relates that ono
night tin old negro.In droll alarm about
thu bliot ttning or his through ticket.ac
costed him us follows:
" '.'Look here, boss, I wnnt to nx you a
fluoatlotLTtsrs n'good wayffrdm homo,
and wants to know if I'd on the right
'Where do you want to go, uncle?"
"To Fort Gibson, way down In Ar-
kltisaw, Btih. Now, boss, I's Ignorant,
and wants to know If I'h on tho right
kenr for Cinccrntttl."
Wo assured our negro friend he was
all right lor Cincinnati, when ho broke
loose in follows :
"Look a here, bo.s, I doesn't know
nothing when IN nwny from home
clean fact, salt. When I started out
from Washington city I hud a power

ing that portion of his through ticket
which had not been taken up. "Eoery
now and then a gentleman comes 'round
and tars off a little piece. Tell you, sab,
It's gitten mighty short. 'Fraid it nlnt
gwine to hold out until I gets through."
'this last remark creatid quite n laugh.
In which the negro Joluiil heartly.
Th cue was not long blnco p devout

Ho perceived tho necessity of his own
private prayers to God, btsldes tho pa
ternosters, but so simple was lie, that
how to pray ho know not. Only every

and lil ting up his hands and eyes to
Heaven, lie would deliberately repeat

say, "O good Ood, put theso letters to

under a Confederal guard. Whenev
er n prisoner vislud tu lo.ivo thu lino

Billings went with Catherloti to the

him to Jet him get nwny, und lie would
pay Iilui. The arrangement was that
tho Csyifederato was to let Catherloti
run, and flro his gun In another direc
tion, and pretend to pursue. If Caliier-
ton goi away no was to send Billings
ono hundred dollars by his brother, who
was it prisoner in tho Federal hands.
and would doubtless soon boexchanged.
Tho plan worked. Catherlon ran, tho
Confederate Billiitsrs fired his t'lin nnd
shouted, tint it did not avail nnvthhiL'.
of course. Calherton cot back to St.

tlio ono hundred dollars ns ho agreed.
