((RHEUMATISM CURE II
A TRAGEDY OF EVIDENCE,
A 8TOUV TOl.t) UV WII.KIK COLLINS.
At tlint mcmorablo period in tlio
early history of tlio United Stated
when American citizens resented tho
tyranny of Qeorgo tlio Third and his
l'arlimetit by destroying a cargo of
taxetl tea, a liristol trader arrived 111
tho harbor of lioston, having 0110 pas
senger on board. This person was a
young Knglishwoinan, named lather
Calvert, daughter of a shopkeeper at
Cheltenham and nieco of tlio Captain
of tho ship.
Some years before her departure
from England Esther had suffered
from an alllietion associated with a
deplorable public event which had
shaken her attachment to her native
land. Free, at a later period to chooso
for herself, she resolvtd on leaving
England as soon as emploj merit could
bo lound for her in another country.
After a weary interval of expectation,
the sea Captain had obtained a situa
tion for his nieco as housekeeper in tho
family of Sirs. Anderkin a widow
lady living in 15oston.
Esther had been well practiced in
domestic duties during tho long illness
of her mother. Intelligent, modest
and sweet-tempered, sho soon became
a ftvorilo with Mrs. Anderkin and tho
members of her young family. Tho
children found but one fault with tho
now housekeeper ; sho dressed invar
iably in dismal black ; and it was im
possible to prevail upon her to giro
tho cause. It was known that she was
an orphan, and sho had ackowledged
that no relations of hers had recently
died and yet sho persisted in wearing
mourning. Somo great grief had evi
dently overshadowed tho lifo of the
gentle English housekeeper.
On the day beforo ho sailed on his
homeward voyago the sea Captain call
ed to tako leavo of his niece, and then
asked if ho could also pay his respects
to Mrs. Anderkin. He was informed
that the lady of tho houso had gone
out, but that tho governess would be
happy to receivo him. At tho inter
view which followed thoy talked of
Esther, and agreed bo well in their
good opinion of her that the Captain
paid a long visit. Tho governess had
persuaded him to tell the story of his
nieco's wasted lifo.
But ho insisted on ono condition.
"If wo had been in England,'' ho
said, "1 should havo kept tho matter
secret for tho sake of the family. Here,
in America, Esther is a stranircr hero
bIio will stay and no slur will bo cast
on tho family name at home. But
1. und ono thin " I I trust to your honor
to tako no ouo into your confidence
excepting only tlio mistress of tho
M010 than 100 years have passed
sineo theso words were spoken.
Esther's sad Btory may bo haimlessly
In tho year 17G2 a voting man nam
ed John Jennings, employed as a
w-aitcr at a Yorkshire . inn, astonished
his master by announcing that ho was
ejgaged to be married, and that ho
purposed retiring Irom business on
next quaiter-day. Further inquiry
showed that tho young woman's naino
was Jisllier ualvert, and that Jennings
was greatly her Inferior in social rank.
Her father's consent to the marriage
depended on her lover's success in ris
ing in tho world. Friends with money
woro inclined to trust Jennings and to
help him to start a business of his own.
if -Miss Calvert's father would dp some
thing for tht young peoplo on fiis side,
lie made no objection and the mar
riage engagement was sanctioned ac
cordingly. One evening, when tho last days of
Jenning'fl Bervico were, drawing to an
end, a gentleman on horseback stopped
at the inn. In a stato of great agita
tion ho informed tho landlady that ho
was on his way to Hull, but that ho
had been bo frightened as to mako it
impossiblo for him to continue- his
journey. A highwayman had robbed
him ot a purso containing twenty
guinea. Tho thief's faco (as usual in
thoso days) was concealed by a mask,
and theio was but ono chanco to bring
him to justice. It was tho traveler's
custom to place a privato mark on
overy gold piece that ho carried with
him on a journey, aud the stolen
guineas might possibly bo traced in
Tho landlord (ono Mr. Brunei)) at
tended on his guest at supper. His
wife had only that moment told him
of tho robbery ; and he had a circum
stance to mention which might lead to
tho discovery of tho thief. In tho
first place, however, ho wished to
ask at what timo the crimo had been
committed. Tho traveled answered
that ho had been robbed lato in tho
evening, just as it was beginning to
get dark. On hearing this Mr. Brtinoll
looked very much distressed.
"I havo pot a waiter hero named
Jennings," he paid, "a man superior to
his Btation in life good manners and
a fair education in fact, a general
favorite. But for somo little timo
past I havo observed that ho has been
rather free with his money in betting,
and that habits of drinking havo grown
on him. I am afraid ho is not worthy
of tho good opinion entertained of him
by myself snd by other persons. This
evening I sent him out to get somo
small silver for me, giving him n
guinea to chaugo. Ifocamoback in
toxicated, telling 1110 that chango was
not to be had. I ordered him to bed,
anil then happened to look at tho
guinea which lie had brought back.
Unfortunately I had not at lhat timo
hoard of tho robbery, and I paid tho
guinea away with some other money
in settlement of a tradesman's account.
But this I am suro of there was a
mark on tho guinea which Jennings
gavo back to inc. It is, of course,
possiblo that thero might havo been a
maik (which escaped my notice) on tho
guinoa which I took out of my purso
when I sent for change.''
"Or," tho traveler suggested, "it may
have been 0110 of my stolen guineas
given back by mistako by this drunken
waiter of youra instead of tho guinea
handed to him oy yourself. Do you

"Suro to bo asleep, sir in hia con.
"Do you object, Mr. Brunei), after
what you havo told me, to setting thi&

Tho landlord hesitated. "It socms
hard on Jennings," ho said, "if wo
prove to havo been suspicions of him
without a cause. Can you speak posi
tively, sir, to tho mark whioh you put
on your money 1"
Tho traveler declared that ho could
swear to his mark. Mr. Bruncll yield
ed Tho two wont up together to tho
Jennings was fast asleep. At tho
very outset of tho search they found
tho stolen bag of money in his pocket.
Tlio guineas nineteen in number
had a mark on each 0110 of them, and
that mark tlio traveler identified. After
this discovery thero was but ono course
to take. The waiter's protestations of
innocence when they noko hira and
accused him of tho robbery vrcro words
flatly contradicted by facts. IIo was
chat ged before a Magistrato with tlio
theft of thu money, and, as a matter
of course, was committed for trial.
Tho circumstances were so strongly
against him that his own friends
recommended Jennings to plead guilty
and appeal to tho mercy of tho Court.
Ho refused to follow their advice and
ho was bravely encouraged to persist
in that decision by tho poor girl, who
believed in his innocence with her
whole heart. At that dreadful crisis
in her lifo sho secured tho best legal
assistance, and took from her littlo
dowry tho money that paid tho ex
penses. At tho next assizes Iho caso was
tried. Tho proceedings beforo tho
Judgo wero a repetition (at great
length and with moro solemnity) of
the proceedings beforo thu Magistrate.
No skill in cross-examination could
shako the direct statements of tho wit
nesses. Tho evidence was mado abso
lutely complcto by the appearance of
tho tradesman to whom Mr. Brunell
had paid tho marked guinea. Tho
coin (so marked) was a curiosity j tho
man had kept it and ho now produced
it in Court. Tho Judge summed up,
finding literally nothing lhat ho could
say as an honest man in favor of tlio
prisoner. Tho jury returned a verdict
of guilty, after a consultation whioh
was a mero matter of form. Clearer
circumstantial ovidenco of guilt had
never been produced in tho opinion of
every person but one who was
present nt tho trial. The sentenco on
Jcannings for highway robbery was,

Friends wero found to help Esther
in tho last effort that the faithful creat
ure could now make tho attempt to
obtain a commutation of -tho sentence.
She was admitted to an interview with
the Home Secretary, and her petition
was presented to tho King. Here,
again, the indisputable ovidenco for
bado tlio exercise of mercy. Esther's
betrothed husbaud was hanged at Hull.
His last words declared his innocence
with tlio rope around his neck.
Before a year had passed tho ono
poor consolation that sho could hopo
for in this world found Esther in her
misery. Tho proof that Jennings had
died a martyr to tho fallibility of hu
man justico was madu public by the
confession of the guilty man. Another
criminal trial took placa at tho assizes.
Tho landlord of an inn was found
guilty of having stolen tho propeity of
a person slaying in his house. It was
stated in evidence that this was not
his first offense. He had been habitu
ally a robber on the highway, and his
namo was Brunell.
Tho wretch confessed that ho was
the masked highwayman who had
stolen tho bag of guineas. Riding by
a nearer way than was known to tho
traveler, ho had reached tho inn first.
There he found n person in trade wait
ing by appointment for tho settlement
of a bill. Not having enough money
of his own about him to nay tho whole
amount, Brunell had mado uso of ono
of tho stolen guineas, and had only
heard tho traveler declare that his
money was marked after tho trades
man had left tho house. To nsk for
tiio return of tho fatal guinea was
moro than ho dared to attempt. But
ore other alternative presented itself.

been strictly preserved ; Esther nover
even suspected that they know tho de

life, after what sho had suffered, was
not prolonged to a great age. She
died peacefully unconscious of tho
terrors of death. Her last words wero

300 Miles an Hoar by Bail.
From tho son J'ranclsco Chronicle.
When (k'orgo Slovenson nsserted
his ability to run passenger coaches nt
a speed of twclvo to fifteen miles nn
hour, scientific and practical men deem
ed him lit for ft lunalio asylum, but
lime has shown that trains may bo run
at a much greater velocity without
materially adding to the dangers of
railway travel. Tho flight of tho fast
express on tho Pennsylvania Railway
is a marked example of tho possibilities
in tho way of sustaining high rates of
speed. This road now runs the fastest
train in America. Kino hundred and
twclvo miles', including seven stops
nro accomplished in 23 hours, and
tho average lime is 3C.30 miles an hour.
A portion of the distance is run nt tho
rate of 7.", miles an hour. At n speed
of 00 miles on hour the diivicg wlieols
of tho locomotive on this Irani makoi
revolutions a minute. Win.
Vanderbilt's spurt of 81 miles in 01
minutes on tho New York Central is
declared to bo the highest rato of speed
over attained in this country, but this
speed was not a surprise to good engi
neers, many of whom aro firm in tho
belief that 100 miles an hour will yet
bo accomplished on American roads.
Thiity-ono years ago Col. Mwggs
road a pajier beforo tho New York
Farmer's Club on "Future Travelling"
iii which ho expressed tho belief that
railroad cars could bo safely propelled
by steam at tho rato of 300 miles an
hour. Ilo said : "Tho Emperor of
Russia has taken the first great step
toward what I deem tho ultimatum of
railroad travel. Instead of cutting
what I call a mero drill through tho
country aud going around everything
in tho way for a straight lino, ho has
cut a broad way for 300 miles from
St. Petersburg to Moscow. He has
mado it all the way 200 feet wide, so
that tho engineer soos everything on
tho road. This is part of tho future
the railroad from point to point with
a mathematical line s-tho rails ten times
stronger than aro now used j tho loco
motives 011 wheels of a far greator di
ameter j the gaujo of a relative breadth
tho signals and times perfectly settled ;
tho roads on both sides during tho
transit of trains having tho gates of
the walls all closod then instead of
travelling 100 miles an hour, wo shall
moro safely travel 300 miles an hour."
Ono of tho latest efforts at improve
ment in locomotives is that of a French
man named Estrade, who has con
structed an eng'tno which lie calls La
Parisienne. Li Parisienne, when
watered and fired, weighs 42 tons. Its
driving wheels, six in number, aro 8i
feet in diameter. Tho cylinders are
outside, with valve boxes on tho top.
Tho diameter of each cylinder is 18J
inches and tho length of stroko is 2
feet and 3J inches. This cngino is
built for high speed, and will carry a
jirossuro of 200 pounds to the square
moli above tho atmosphere, or an abso
luio pressure df 215 pounds. Eslrade's
engiuo is designed to run at tho aver
ago rato of 78 miles an hour.
Prosperity and Politics,
Accciiliuer tho drv-rrnrwla tr.nln in
this citV a.S "a tirettv f.lir liarnmetnr nf
tho country's prosperity,'' the 2'ribu?ie
is gratiueu 10 learn that "largo and
numerous sales aro now reported by
Now Yoik merchants generally," aud
ituu -iiio uusmess also is well distrib
uted and payments aro unusually
prompt." And it adds that "this pleas
ing condition of affairs could not
be if the country to-day were not in
much better Bhape than it has beon for
a long time.''
This frank admission of a palpable
fact does not agree witli tho diro
prophecies of evil to tho business in
terests of tho country in caso the Dem
ocrats wero intrusted with tho control
of tho Government which tho Tribune
and other Republican organs indulged
'in two years ago. Theso predictions
were equally ungenerous and absurd,
inasmuch as tho Democrats aro quite
as much interested as are their political
opponents in tho business prosperity of
tho country, whilo ten years out of tho
last twclvo of Republican rulo bad
been marked by serious business de
pression and Labor troubles. But tho
Democratic party has now been iu
power for a year and a half and has an
assured leaso of two years and a half
more, with a bright prospect of a long
tenure, and yet Mr. Blaino's Now York
organ is forced to admit, by tho indi
cations of renewed prosperity on all
sides, that tho country is to-dav " "in
much better shape thin it has been for
a long time."
Wo aro not disposed to copy tho ex
treme partisanship of our Republican
neighbors, and claim lhat tho bounti
ful crops, tho favorablo condition of
trade, the increased earnings of both
Capital and Labor and the renewed
confidence of tho peoplo aro all duo to
tlio party power. Wo simply recall
tho prophecies of disaster and uoto tho
admission of their failuro by way ot
instruction to tho people when next
tho ltopublicans shall appeal to them
as they aro suro to do to readmit their
gray old rats to the publio cheese in
order to "protect tho business interests."
