Bloomsburg, Pa.. January 21, 1887.
The bills granting ticnsiona ol So,.
OOd yearly to Mrs. Logan nnd Mrp.
Illnir, widow of General Frank P.
lilair, twero defeated in the House
committee on invalid pensions. There
wero two almentces Messrs. Pid
cock aud Ellshury when the com
mittee met. The mombers were ar
rayed on party lines seven Demo
crats voting against and livo Repub
licans in favor of the bills. The ad
verse majority report on the Logon
and lilair bills will bo made by
Messrs. Swope and Taulbco respect
ively and the favorable minority re
pot tH by Messsrs. Conger and Morrill.
It is uudirstood that tho b.iais of
the opposition to the bills is a nine
lance on the pait of the majority of
the cnrainittce to tho continnance f
the poiioy of grouting high pensio i
to widows of officers who did not die
from injuries incurred in tho service.
The only precedents for passing suoh
bills are found in the cases of the
widows and families of Admiral
Farragut, Generals Hancock, Thomas
and Grant, and tho majority of the
commit believe that it would be bad
policy to follow these precedents, in
view of the fact that there are about
one hundred niii viving widows of offi
cers who would then be entitled to
penninus who are now excluded by
the general law.
It was dark in the depot one day
In December when tho evening train
camu in. An elderly farmer was
backed up ngidnst the partition,
watching in open-mouthed wonder
tho big puffing engine and the yellow
cars as they discharged their pasen
uers, when a handsome young girl in
a sealskin cloak dashed forward, and,
throwing herself upon the honest
granger's manly breast, imprinted a
kiss upon his sunburned oheek and
"You dear old pa, I knew you
would bo wailing for mel And bow's
mother and bow's John t And, oh 1
I'm bo glad to get back and whero's
my trunk aud let's hurry.''
The granger was old aud dried up
and he had never known what it was
to have a wife, much less a daughter
Ho mistrusted the young lady in the
sealskin cloak had made a raWt'tke,
but, instead of stammering Mid limn
living and havs'itig. lie came gallantly
up to the scratch, and throwing bntli
arms around tho fair creature, he
mid a up his mind to bo a father to
her or die in the nltumpt. Imprinted
a kis, like tho report of a pistol, on
h:r cheek, he enthusiastically ejacu
'Oh, yer mother's well, an' John,
an' Henry, an' (sitnek) an' .Tatip, nu'
Susan (smack, smack) an' Hoiaie,
an' Helindy, an' Calvin (smaek) ; oh,
they're all smart and hearty, an'
By the timo the young lady's friends
could get to her she had slid into a
stone faint, and they had to big her
h ime in a hack, " while the aged
granger, ac he finished the third round
with her outragtd young man and
saut.tercd out of the depot, leaving
him with a black eye and a ruptured
coat, chuckled to himself:
'Tho old man's getting old an'
stiff ao' caroless like, but when any
young fpmales want to play any
o' Copenhagen they'll find him right
to time aud I shouldn't be g'prised if
it rained 'fore 0 o'clock. G'lang,Katel"
