HAD IX SPITE OP HIMSKIiP.
"Kvcryliinggoc3 wrong," said Mr. Triplcr,
laying down his knifo and fork with tbo face,
of a martyr.
There aro boino people in tho world with
whom "everything" seems chronically to go
wrong there nro some whoso first infaiitino
wail is uttered iti tho minor key, and who
go on lamenting through life ; ami of this
much abused class, Sir. Nathan Triplcr was
a burning and shining light.
"What's tho matter dear?" questioned
Mrs. Tripler, who sat opposite her husband
with a touiid-eycil baby on her knee, and
two or throe little ones clamoring for their
share of tho matutinal meal on cither side
Mrs. Triplcr was a trim, neatly mado little
woman, with bluo eyes and flaxen hair a
woman who might havo been pretty, could
sho havo divested herself of n certain fright
ened, apprehensive look that camo over her
faco whenever her liege lord spoko or looked
toward her. Not that Dorothy Tripler was
actually afraid her husband had neither
beaten her nor used coercivo measures, but
when a man begins to find fault, a woman
never is easy in her mind lest somo domestic
screw should bo waxing loose.
"I can't cat a mouthful, Dorothy," croak

would havo got accustomed to tho daily dis

conscientious, too delicately organized to

husband departed, btill grumbling under his

her throbbing head upon otio weary littlo

"Oh, I wish Nathan was different I"
Then, as if sho had uttered high treason,
sho started to her lect, checking tho soma

"I must go directly homo aud get on some

Ho rose, brushed away the chill drops of

"It's all a mistake, my good fellows a

not," responded tho larger of tho two with a
wink to his companion "Drivo on, Tom."
"But I am not indeed; you aro mistaking

"Oh, no I guess not," said tho big keep
er with a fearful attempt at pleasant irony.
"My good men you aro laboring under
somo very singular delusion, remonstrated
the victim, trying to speak plainly between
the jolting of the wagon and his own excite
ment. "I am 3Ir. Nathan Tripler, of No.

"Oil, yes," said tho keeper, lighting n
cigar, "yesterday you was Napoleon Iiona
parte, and to day you aro Nathan Tripler,
mid to-morrow likely as not, you will be
the king of tho Sandwich Islands. I've

end of a long row of similar ones.
It was lighted nnd ventilated by an iron
grating in tho door, witii a corresponding
window high up on tho wall, and furnished
with only a narrow couch mid a stand built
in the wall ; and thero 3Ir, Nathan Tripler,
released from his confining bonds, was left
to enjoy tho uninterrupted society of his own

Towards evening, a pitcher of water and
a picco of bread wero dealt out to him. 3Ir,
Triplcr ato it under a bort of mental protest
to relievo tho gnawing sensation of faintness
that was nt his vitals.
"What would I give for one of Dorothy's

Tho confused current of thoughts was just
eddying vaguely through his mind when
there was n sound of bteps nnd voices In tlio
long corridors without,
"I supposo they aro going to put on a
btralt-wnlsl-coat now," thought 31 r. Triplcr,

When 3Ir. Nathan Triplcr reached his

there. Dorothy had had tho woods searched,

both arms around her.
"Hero I am, Dottiol Don't cry any

"It's only a dream," sho sobbed forth, "Na

"No, I'm not dead," said 3Ir. Tripler with
a grim senso of humor, "only I'vo been
ina.l." And quieting his wife's sobs after a
while, he told her all his adventures. "And
now is dinner ready 1" ho asked, "for I am
ns hungry as a bear."
"I haven't a thing in tho house to eat,
Nathan dear," wailed the wife.
"I don't care if it's nothing but dry bread
and molasses, Dottio," said tho husband.
"I can tell you that asylum took somo of tho

And Dorothy brightened up. It was tho

spoko so tenderly sinco their honeymoon
was in tho crescent glow.
He adhered to his good resolutions ho
never did grumblo again. Tho asylum hud
done him genuino good.
In Onion There is .Strength.
Tho Governor of Ohio, whom a great many
people irreverently cnll "Old Hill Allen," in
his younger days had not only a voice closely
allied to seven-fold thunder, but was a
shrewd practical lawyer. His rude demoli
tion of sentiment onco gained him a case.
General 3Iurphy, a member of the Chilicotho
bar, thirty years ago was one of the most not
ed advocates that rode the circuits of Ohio,
He could weep profusely over the most hard
ened criminals and shed quarts of real tears
whenever the occasion required it. Tho re
sult was that ho usually carried tho jury with
him. On one occasion General 3Iurphy was
engaged to defend a noted horse thief in
Ross county, while the State secured tho ser
vices of Gov. Allen. Tho usual routine was
gone thiough with, and tho prisoner's guilt
was pretty clearly demonstrated, but General
Murphy relied upon working up the sym
pathies: of tho jury. His effort was un
usually brilliant, and towards the cloe of his
appeal tears rolled down his cheeks in tor
rents, while tho jurors rubbed their eyes with
their cuffs. AH thin time Alleii sat still'
and upright, glaring with dry and frozen
eye3 upon 3Iurphy. When tho latter wound
up with a final burst of eloquence nnd tears,
which left the whole audience snillling, Ohio's
tall Governor, that was to be, straightened
hiin-clf to his fullest height, and pointing
his long bony finger at the jury, said : "Gen
tlemen, there is such a thing as blotting out
justice with tears and confounding judgment
with much weeping, Gen. Murphy under
stands this better than any other living man.
Rut before his tears work an absolution of
tlio bin hardened criminal at tho bar, and
cheat the stato prison of its dues, I wish to
show the fountain from whence theso tears
How so copiously," With ono swoop of his
long right arm ho was down in Gen. Mur
phy's coat pocket and withdraw nn immenso
red onion, denuded of its outer covering, and
holding it aloft beforo the eyes of tho aston
ished jurors ho continued: "Tho ancient
Egyptians worshipped the onion becauso it
was typical of the celestial spheres. Hero
in Ohio wo have good reason to curso it, be
caiiso in General Jlurphy's pocket it has so
often cheated tho gallows and tho prison of
their dues." The prisoner was convicted,
and General 3Iurphy nover rubbed his hand
kerchief on a peeled onion again when Old
Rill Allen had tho other sulo of tho case.
What Was thu Fohiiiddi:k Fruit?
It is n common opinion that

poetry from Frencnti, Dtvlght nnd Rarlow."
No poet has arisen even in Ihcfo latter days
with a truer genius than was possessed by
Frcneati, nor any man with a more patriotic
and llberty-loting heart. In tho darkest
hours of tho Revolution his songs and burn-
lug words kept alivo tho hopes of our pcoplo;
and his satiro, his humor nnd his indignn-
tlon wcio leveled at Tories nndUritish alike,
There is a rvthm and a rinc to his verso
which is often nttalned, nnd his songs and
lyrical pieces aro of a kind which can bo
Bung as well as read. Every incident in our
Revolutionary history was mado to contrib-
titc to swell tho tido of patriotic emotion.
Hero wo havo an exultation "On tlio nicmor-
nblo victory of tho Ron Homino Richard ;"
thero a lamentation "To tho memory of tho
bravo Americans" who fell nt Eutaw
Springs; now a ghastly picturo of tho hor-
rors of "Tho Rritish prison ship ;" then a
"Song on Captain Harney's victory over tho
ship Great 3Ionk." Thcio aro many poetl-
cal gems of tho first water among tho poems
of Erencau. In ono already mentioned oc-
curs that mcmorablo verso from which a
quarter of a century afterward Sir Walter
Scott copied a lino nnd borrowed tbo whole
idea. I'Veneau had said :
They saw their Injured country's woo ;
Tho Uamlng town, tho wasted Held ;
They rushed lo meet the exultlug f oo ;
They tool; tho spear but left iho bhlcld.
And Scott said :
Lamented Chief ! not thlno tho power
To save In that presumptuous hour,
When Prussia hurried to tho Held,
And snatched tho spear and loft tho shield.
And not Scott nlono bos levied contribu
tions upon our Revolutionary poet. In his
beautiful poem of "O'Couor's Child,"
Campbell has also borrowed an imago and
copied a line. Frencau said :
Hy midnight moou3, o'er moistening dews,
In vestments of tho chaso arrayed,
Tlio hunter still tho deer pursues,
Tho hunter and tho deer a shade.
And Campbell said :
1 Kow on tho grass-green turf he sits,
Ills tasseled horu beside him laid;
Now o'er tho hills In chaso ho lilts,
