John Hamline's fault was that he was
extremely bashful. Not among his own
sex, yOu understand. Before a jury, for
instance, John was as bold as a lion, and
there was no lawyer in Brickton who had
grown into so wide and profitable a prac
tice in so short a time. He deserved his
success, for he was industrious, energet
ic, talented, and—what many successful
lawyers are not—conscientious, He re
fused to conduct a cause in whose justice
he did not thoroughly believe. This
was a drawback, in the early part of his
career, but in the "long run" he found
himself leading the race among his com
petitors. He was greatly respected by
that portion of the community whose re
spect was moat to be prized.
But his bashfulnesa among ladies was
so profound that to John It was absolute
ly painful. He had a good, lovhigheart,
had John Htunline, and a great admira
tion for the sex before whose 'members
he was always so 11l at ease. It is gener
ally en with bashful men, I believe.
Here was John, full thirty years of
age, and a bachelor. Unhappy state of
affairs, indeed! But bow to mend it?
John had not the faintest idea bow to
mend it. Entre sous, I think he had ve
ry nearly given up all hopes of ever
mending it. Yet be often sighed as he
thought of the future—of a long, dreary
bachelor life—no dear wife to "Clare hie
joys and sorrows—no happy home-circle
to make his heart glad when he should
come home from his laborli at the close
of the day. Heigho! The Fates seem
ed to have shut him outfrom Paradise!
Among those who,had sought John
Hemline's valuable/aid in law, was a
gay young fellow about town, who had
the reputation ofbeing a practical joker.
One of then/ practical jokes having
got him into a bad scrape, which was no
joke, he found that Hemline would not
help him Out of it.
"It'syOur own fault, Hawes, and you
deserve to be punished," he said, in his
blunt way. "Your love of those silly
practical jokes will get you into more
serious trouble than this, some day, If you
are not careful. Take my advice, and
drop all that nonsense. It's sound ad
vice, and I don't charge you anything
for it. I hope this affair will teach you
a good lesson."
Young Hawes thought this hard of
Hemline. And as for taking his advice
—this is the way he took it.
"I'll get even with him some day," he
said to one of his cronies. "Confound
him and his preaching. He's smart,
but I'll get him on the hip before he's a
year older, or I'm a minister !"
Bringing his capacious intellect to bear
upon his great purpose, Hawes finally
saw his opportunity.
"I'll kill two birds with one stone," he
Mrs. Rich—a wealthy widow in Brick
ton—had also won the animosity of this
joker. Mrs. Rich bad a besitiful daugh
ter, whom Hawes wanted to warty—
partly for herself, but more particularly
on recount of her prospective wealth,
But Helen rejected Mr. Hawes one fine
day, and Mr. Hawes—whoee faith in hie
own irresistibility was entirely too
strong to be shaken—could account for
the rejection in no other way than by
concluding that the mother had opposed
his suit. And so she had, though it was
unnecessary, as Helen had a cordial con
tempt for the young man.
Mrs. Rich, therefore, was the other
bird that Mr. Hawes contemplated slay
ing with the stone that should demolish
John Hemline.
And this was the way he set about It :
With the aid of his crony already al
luded to, he prepared a certain paper,
running as follows, and written in a del
icate lady-like hand :
"Mrs. Rich respectfully requests that
Mr. Hemline will call upon her, at his
earliest convenience, to consult upon a
matter involving the interests of her
daughter. Miss Helen Rich. Thursday
evening is preferred."
This was dispatched to Hemline's ad
dress through the village post-office.
At the same time another, note was me
pared and dispatched, reading thus:
"Mr John Hemline begs leave to in
form Mrs. Rich that he will call upon her
on Thursday evening, to consult her up
on certain matters that have come to his
knowledge, Intimately concerning the
interests of Miss Helen RI h."
"It'll be a splendid sel l!" the crony
declared, and the Jokers were in high
So the letters went through the post-
John Hemline scratched his head re
flectively fora moment, ea he read the
mlesive addressed to him, and then turn
ed to other business with the remark :
"I wonder what ithiabout I wish we
men would do business se min do, when
they want a lawyer ; but it's idle to ex
pect that, I suppose."
Mrs. Rich read the note she received
with some surprise, and a natural feeling
of feminine curiosity ; and knowing Mr.
Hemline's high standing as a lawyer,
which was a guaranty of the importance
of the matter, waited with some impa
tience for Thursday evening to come.
Thursday evening came, and brought
John Hamlin to the lady's door. He
rung the bell, was shown into the parlor,
and eat with his heart thumping In a
most annoying way, awaiting the en
trance of the lady.
She entered, and John bowed awk
wardly and blushed violently.
"A pleasant evening," said Mrs. Rich.
"Very pleasant," said John. "I think
we shall have rain. It's about time we
had maw," and be pulled ova his wet"
with a confused Ala of oonsnaing that
&Mole on thestibJect.
A long pause. Then the lady spoke
again :
"Thls matter that concerns Helen's in
terest so nearly ; I—"
"Yes—quite curious, I assure you,"
said John.
"Anything that affects my daughter,
of course *Heels me."
"Oh, certainly! Nothing more natu
"Though the manner of announcing
the business is a little out of the common
way with lawyers," said - Mrs. Rich, gay
ly, as if she meant It fora piece of pleas
As such John received it.
"But quite womanly," he eald, with a
laugh, "ti, you'll permit me to say so.
Ladles don't do business exactly as men
do, generally."
"That is true," laughing in return,
"and will uo doubt serve as an explana
tion of—"
"Oh, no explanation is needed, Mrs
Rich—none at all."
“1 was about to say—u'
• "I beg you won't apologize, madans,”
said John, very much distressed by the
prospect, and growing rapidly more con
"Apologize, Mr. Hemline:"
"Not stall—riot at all•"
"I meant to offer no apology, sir. Ido
not perceive any occasion for an apoX
"Not in the least," said John, more and
more abashed, and looking at hlawatch
again for assistance.
"If you will be kind eno6gh to pro
ceed to business, Mr. Hamlin--"
"A, shall be happy to do so," said John,
assuming au attitude of respectful atten
tion. -
Mrs. Rich stared It bilm with unfeign
ed astonishment. We: the man crasy?
"Will you be so good as to inform me
what the matter is which concerns my
daughter so nearly ?"
It WAS now, John's turn to stare.
"Precisely what I came here to learn,"
he cried. ,
"Yon „speak in riddles, Mr. Ramdine.
Whan,l received your note—".
"MY note I have sent no note to you,
Mrs. Rich."
The lady arose to her feet: John also;
Sim Rich touched a bell. A servant
"Go bp and ask Miss Helen for the
note that came from Mr. Hamline," she
John took a note from his pocket, with
p new light breaking over his face.
"Allow me to ask you, Mrs. Rich, If
you sent me this""
Mrs. Rich glanced at it, and returned
"I did not," she said
"Then it is the work of some practical
Joker," said John. "That Is very plain."
The door opened, and Helen Rich en
tered. radiant with a beauty that sent
the blood rushing to young Hemline's
head. She brought the letter for which
the servant had been dispatched.
Notwithstanding the mother's excite
ment, the breeding of the lady prevailed,
and Mrs. Rich introduced Mr. Hemline
to her daughter.
She handed him the note.
"A forgery," said he immediately.
"Both these letters are the work of the
same rascally hand."
At first. indignation prevailed; but to
this succeeded a realization of the ludi
crous aspect of the affair, which recalled
all their good nature, and in a few min
utes they were laughing heartily, while
John Hemline, forgetting to be bashful,
fired a volley-of bon profs. And by-and
by, when he left them, he said,
"I really feel quite in aforgiving mood
toward the scamp who got up this joke—
and I think 1 know who It is—for he has
been the means of introducing me to an
acquaintanceship which I might other
wise never have formed, and which I
find most agreeable."
"Indeed, I share your mood," said
Mrs. Bich—
("And so del," said Helen.)
"—And I hope you will come again to
see us, Mr. Hamline—soon and often.
We shall always be happy to see you."
And so they were. But by and by,
somehow it happened that Mrs. Rich
did not feel as If John cared so much for
her society that he could not endure to
be left alone with Miss Helen. So she
tested the question, and left them alone
together so much that one day John
Hemline asked permission to be left
with Helen for the remainder of his

"you put the rest of the world far otr

50TH YEAR.-NO. 12.
The President Eulogises UM Action
Whaturtaron, December 18.—The
President sent the following message to
Congress to-day :
Gentlemen of the Senate and House of
An official copy of the order issued by
Major-General W. n. Hancock, Cowman
der of the Fifth Military District, dated
Headquarters, New Orleans, November,
I the 18th, has reached toe through the
regular channels of the War Depart
ment, and I herewith communicate It to
Congress -for such action as may seem
proper in view of all the circumstances.
It will be perceived that General Han
cock announces that be will make the
law the rule of his conduct; that he will
uphold the Cour*, and other civil au
thorities iu the performance of their
proper duties, and that he will use his
military power only to preserve the
peace, and euforce the law. He declares
explicitly that the right of trial
by Jury and privilege of the writ of habe
as °orj i. shall nut be crushed out or
trodden under foot. He goes further,
andln one comprehensive sentence as
serts that the principles of American
ttiterty are still the inheritance of this
people and ever should be.
When a great soldier, with unrestrain
ed.power in his hands to oppress his fellow
men, voluntarily foretoes the chance of
gratifying his selfish ambition, and de
votes himself to the duty of building up
the liberties and strengthening the taws
of his country, he presents an example
of the highest virtue that human nature
is capable of practicing. The strongest
claim of Washington to be "first in war.
first in peace, and first in the hearts. of
his countrYmen," is founded on the
great fact that in all his Illustrious career
the scrupulously abstained from vialoting
the legal and constitutional rights of his
fellow citizens.. When he surrenderid
his commission to Congress, the PPPPI•
dent of that body spoke his praise in say
ing he had always regarded the rights
of the civil authorities through all dan
gers and disasters. Where poser above
the law courted his acceptance, he calm
ly put temptation aside. By such .mag
nanimous acts of forbearance, he won
the universal admiration of mankind,
and left a name which has no rival in
the history of the world.
r sin far from saying Gen. Hancock is
the only officer of the American Army
who is influenced b`y the example of
Washington. Doubtless thousands of
them are faithfully devoted - to the prin
ciples for which the men of the revolu
tion laid down their lives; but the dis
tinguished honor belongs to him of being
the first officer in high command south
of the Potomac, since the close of the
civil war, who has given utterance to
these noble sentiments in the form of a
military order; and I respectfully suggest
to Congress that some publie recognition
of General Hancock's patriotic conduct
is due, if not to him, to the friends of
law and Justice throughout the country.
Of such an act as his, at such a time, it is
but fitting that the dignity should be
vindicated, and virtue proclaimed, so
that its value as an example may not be
lost to the nation.

coffee. The landlady called the police,
who suspected her of poisoning the men.
She protested she did not, and to prove
the harmlessness of the coffee drank a
cup herself, when she also fell down
dead. An examination of the coffee pot
showed that a bunch of matches had
been boiled with the coffee.
IF you have a screw rusted into wood,
or a nut or a bolt that will not readily
turn, pour on it a little kerosene and let
it remain. In a little while the oil will
penetrate the interstices so that the
screw can be easily started.

A lady at Kingston, Alabama, has
written an appeal to the "Christian wo.
men of the North," to use their ludo
once to save the. women of the South
from the terrible perils which the Radi
cal policy of reconstruction le forcing up
on them. Large numbers of families In •
the South are left without any male bead,
and the females have to work and toll
in the field, and are there, as every
where else, constantly subjected to the
insults and outrages of half civilised ne
groat, who know no taw but their own
lusts and desires. After these women
have worked in the open fields and pro
duced their little crops, they are not en
frequently stolen by the negroes at night.
She asserts that large numbers of the
freedmen who were three years ago In
dustrious and honest, have, under the
new order of things, become drunkards
and vagabonds. Here is an election
scene which she recites, that will prove •
instructive to our people in regard to the
beauties of negro elections in the South
"We wW give a alight sketch of one
scene only, among the hundreds that
Southern women have to encounter.
Our recent elections have been *whit.
Always, heretofore, the white men had
voted at eight or ten precincts In each
county; but our military monarch or
dered that all should vote at the court
house, thereby, in some counties, collect
lug together several thousand negroes,
to create riots with the whites. May
God forgive us If we Judge him wrongly,
but :we can see no other reason for this
order. Our court-house Is situated In a
sparsely settled section, only four or live
families in the village, mostly women
and children, more than twenty-five
miles from a military poet. Well, the
night before election, between one and
two thousand negroes commenced cons.
log In All armed, with guns, pistols,
and bowie-knives, they were yelling,
firing guns and tearing around as 'lf all
the demons from the lower regions had
been turned loose on earth to walk to
and fro. The din coptinued three days,
and we did not see a dozen white men
during the time. The military order
was for all groceries to be closed ; it was
done here, but whiskey was handed out
at back windows as much as was warded.
During the time, one white man attempt
ed to vote; a negro guard knocked him
down; he had spirit to fire at him; he.
made his escape, and no one was hurt
But language cannot portray the uproar
of a thousand half-drunken metros, in •
pursuit. The firing, screeching, swear
leg, and ohs, ene brngunge•were horrible._
None that witnessed that scene can for
get it while life lasts. We thought then,
and think yet, it would have been a deed
of mercy If Congress had sent old Brown
low with his torch and turpentine, ex
terminated the women and children
South, if he would have laid our
bodies beneath our bloody soil, with our
loved ones gone before. The most of us
have been reduced from absence to pov
erty ; but we do not ask aid and are will
ing to toll fur our living. Our young
sons work manfully to support their
aged parents, and hundreds of women In
Alabama work daily in the fields to sop- .
port their children. Then the lam
prowling negroes rob our fields at night!
Oh ! the iron heel of oppression is truly
on our necks, and life lea curse to many
at the South to-day. But this Is only
the beginning of the drama. God alone
knows the sequel."
re THE Sotrrx.—The surging elements
of political and social strife now agita
ting the Booth are beginning to find an
outlet in an almbst boundless sea of
troubles. We have already chronicled
many acts of lawlessness committed by
the blacks in defiance of the civil author
ities in various darts of the Southern
country, but they seem not to have been
so unprovoked and alarming as those
that have occurred in Mississippi. So
threatening have matters become there
that the Governor has felt called upon to
issue a proclamation warning the blacks
against committing further outrages,
and also cautioning them against follow
ing the seditious advice of emissaries,
black or. white. It appears, according
to this proclamation, that conspiracies
actually exist in Mississippi among
the blacks to "go to war" by Janu
ary next, unless Congress arranges
a plan of dividing and distributing the
farm lands, pakticulars of persons and
places being furnished the Governor.
In such an event it is unnecessary to
predict the fate that will befall the black
race not only in Mississippi but through
out the South ; for the government wUI
be obliged to interfere, as GeneratCanby
has already, in regard to the Mississippi
conspiracies, and the wretched negroes
will perish by thousands.—N. Y. Her.
