ol Ins ma, and relates in tho mot cir
cumKtuntial matmer tho particulars of
mo pint to nKHuminiito tho I rcsHlunt.
Tlio pul'lio is alrrady furailiar with
tho personal hitory uf the mtirdorur
and with his aimluHd, vagabond life up
to the timo he conceived tho itkn of
murdering l'rcsidviit Garfield. Tho
hitory ut tho crirao i, of course.
equally well known, but coming, an
the terriblo tragedy doe, fresh from
tho lips ol tho criminal, it is invented
with fresh interest. Alter explaining
his wunderings from plnco to place
and his cll'orts to obtain the recogni
tion of proniinont politicians in the
hops of securing an ollico, (iuitenu
tells his story as lullows:
"I conceived tho idea of removing
tho 1'residonl," Gtillcuu deelurcs, "and
as fur as the Paris Consulship bud any
influence on my mind ut all it would
r.ot havo doterred mo from tho act,
becaiiito I expected as a matter of I'unl
that 1 would get tho Paris Consulship.
After Iconcuived tho idea of removing
tho President I ditl not go near Mr.
Blaino or near tho President to press
my application. About two or three
weeks intervened from the timo that I
called at tho President's when the
doorkeeper said. 'Mr. (iuiteati. the
President nays it will bo impossible for
him lo see you to day, to tho time
Ihut 1 coh'eiveU the idea of removing
him, during which timo I was wailing
patiently for my answer, which, as a
matter of fact, 1 have never vet re
ceived. I hnd been pressing tho Pres
ident and jiir. liluino lor an answer
and I thought that it would be better
lor mo to keep nwuy from them. 1 hey
huil my address and I thought if they
concluded to give me tlio Puris Con
sulshiplhoy would notify mo or 1 should
seo an an tiouncemcntol tlienpi'Ointnicnt
in tho paper, and, as 1 have elated, after
I conceived tho idea ol removing tho
President I did not go near the Presi
dent or Mr. Illume, ily conception
of the idea of removing tho Picsulent
wus tins: nr. tJonkhng resigned on
Monday, May in, 1881. On tho fol
lowing Wednrsday I was In bed. I
think 1 retired ubout 8 o'clock. I felt
depressed and perplexed on account of
too political situation, and 1 retired
muoh earlier than usual. I felt wea
ried in mind and body, and I was in
my bed ubout 8 o'clock and I was
thinking over tho political situation,
and tho idea flashed through my bruin
that if the President wus out of tho
way everything would go bottor. At
first this was a mens impression. It
startled mo, but tho noxt morning it
came to mo with ronowed force, ond I
began to read tho papers with my cyo
on tho possibility that tho President
would havo to go, and tho moro I read
tho moro I saw tho complication
of publio alTuirs, and the moro wus I
impressed with tho necessity of remov
ing him. This thing continued lor
about two weeks. 1 kept reading the
papers and kept being impressed, and
tho idea kept bearing and beaiing
down upon mo that the only way to
unito the two tactions ol tho Kepttbli
can putty and save tho Republio from
going into the hands of the rebels and
Democrats was to qttiotly remove tho
PRIPARINO FOR THE CRIME.
"Two weeks alter I conceived tho
idea my mind wos thoroughly settled
on tho intention to rcmovo tho Presi
dent. 1 then prepared mysoll. 1 sent
to Boston for a copy of my book, 'Tlio
I ruth, and 1 spent a week in prepar
ing that. I cut out a paragraph and
a line and a word hero und there and
added one or two now chapters, put
somo now ideas in it and I greully
improved it. 1 know that it would
probably have a largo salo on account
of tho notoriety that the act of remov
ing tho Prosidenttwould give mo, and
I wished the book to go out to tho
public in propor shape. That was ono
preparation lor it. Another prepara
tion was to think tlio matter all out in
detail and to buy a revolver and to
prcparo mvselt lor executing tho idea.
This required somo two or lltrco weeks
and I gavo my cntiro timo and mind
in preparing rnyscll to cxecuto tho
conception of removing tho President.
1 never mentioned the conception to a
living soul. J did most ot my think
ing in tho Park and on tho street, and
I used to go to tho Arlington and tho
Riggs Ilouso daily to rcud tho papers.
WATCHINO AN OPPORTUNITY.
After I had made up my mind to
remove him the idea when 1 should
remove him pressed me, and 1 was
somewhat confused on that. I knew
that it would not do to go to tho Whila
House and attempt it, because there
wore too many of his employes about
and 1 looked around lor several duys
to try and get a good chance at bun,
ond one Sunday (iho Hundny before
ho went to J.ong llranch) 1 went to
his church in the morning. It is a
small frame building, and 1 stood there
at tho door a moment. 1 was a liltlo
late ; tho services had progressed about
one third. I noticed the President
sitting near an opon window about
throo feet from tlio ground, and 1
thought to myself, 'That would boa
good chaneo to get him.' 1 Intended
lo shoot him through the back of tho
heatl and let the ball puss through tho
ceiling, in order that no ono else should
bo Injured. And there could not pos
sibly be a better place to remove a
man than al bis tievotions. i nan my
revolver In my possession when 1 first
wont to the cburcli, having pureliaseu
it about ten days before the President's
going lo Long llranch. This was the
Sunday prior to his leaving for Long
llranch on Saturday. Jjuring mat
wholo woek I read tho papers lawful
ly. I thought it all over in detail. 1
thought just what people would talk
and thought what a tremendous ex
citement it would creato, and I kept
thinking about it all tho week, I made
up my mind that the next Sunday I
would certainly shoot him if bo was in
church and 1 got a good chance at
him. Thursday ol the same ween l
noticed in tho paper that he was going
to Lornr llranch. and on the following
Saturday he did go to tho Drnnch for
Mrs. Garfield's health. 1 went to tbe
depot all prepared to remove him. 1
bad the revoivor witu mo. i osu an
my papeps nlcoly prepared. I spoke
to a mun about a curriuge to take mo,
as I told him, over near the Congress
ional Cemetery. Ho said that ho
would tako mo ovor tor 82, and seemed
to bo a vory clevor fellow and glad to
got the job. I got lo the depot about
II o'clock and waited there until the
President's White Ilouso carriage
drovo up. About 95 the President
and his carriago and servants and
friends came up. He got out of his
carriago. 1 stood In tho ladios' room,
about tho middle of tho room, watch
ing him. Mrs. Garfield got out and
they walkod through tho ladies' room,
and the presenco of Mrs. Garfield de
terred mo from firing on hira. I was
all ready; my mind was all madoup;
I had all my papers with mo ; I had
all tho arrangemonts niado to shoot
him and to jump into a earrings and
drive over to tho jail. Mrs. Gurlield
looked so thin ami sho clung so ten
derly to tho President's arm that 1 did
not havo tho heart lo firo on him. Ho
passed, right through tho ladies' re
ception room, through tho main cn
tranco, and took tlio cars, 1 waited a
few moments. I went onlsido tho
depot and walked up toward tho Riggs
AN ASSASSIN IN AMlll'SII.
"I noticed in tlio papers," Guiteau
continues, "that he would ho back tho
first of tho week. 1 watched tho pa
pers very carefully to seo when he
would return, but ho did not come
back that week, but ho did como back
on tho following Monday. Tho fol
lowing Monday wus a terribly hot,
sultry duy. I remember 1 suffered
greatly from tho boat, but notwith
standing that I prepared mysell again
and 1 went to the depot again on Mon
day with my revoivor and papers, but
1 OKI not leel into tiring on him. 1
simply went to tho depot. 1 sul in
the ladies' wuiting room. 1 got there
ten or filleen minutes before tho train
time, and 1 waited and thought it all
over and matlo up my mind that I
would not fire on htm thul duy. 1 did
not feel iiko it. The truin cume und
ho enmc, ond Mr. James, tho
Posttnusler General, was there, and
.Mr. Hunt, tho Secretary of tho Navy,
und their lady fiiends. They all came
through Iho ludios' room togolher, and
tho President's son and a thick set
gentleman that came Irotn tho While
House to meet the President were
there. They went right to tho gate
and got' the President, and they all
walked together to the President's
carriage and they all got in and drovo
off. 1 stood on tho entrance of the
ladies' wailing room door, and I noticed
.lames and Hunt thero with their lunv
ilies, and the President and bis friends
drovo up in his While House curriuge
and then James and Hunt went, and 1
went. I got into a cur und went up
towtid tho liiggs House.
Vltlll. OF A MURIlEREIt.
"Well, I was watching for tho Pres
ident all that woek. I got up ono
morning at D !0, thinking that I might
get tho President when he was out
horseback riding, but bo did not go
out that morning. 1 sat there in tho
Purk for two hours watching for him
with my papers and revoivor, thinking
that I might got a chaneo at him, but
he did not go out that morning, so I
went back to my room, took breuktast,
put up my papers and revolver nnd
lot tho matter drop until night. In
tho ovoning, alter dinner at 5 o'clock,
I went up to my room and got my
revolver out and carriod it in my pock
et. This was eith ,r Wednesday or
Thursday, 1 do not remember which,
but 1 think it was Thursday night.
Ho wont out riding that night. 1 was
in Lafayotto Park, opposite tho Whito
House, watching for him, ond about
6 30 the While House carriago drovo
up to tho Wbito llouso and waited a
few moments, and tho President and
somo gentlemen and a young mun 18
or 1!0 yoars old, whom 1 prosumed
was tho President's son, got into tho
carriage. Tho young mun snt with
his buck to tho driver and the Presi
dent and his gentleman triond (who
ovcr ho was'i sat on tho back seat.
They tlrovo out tho entrance nearest
tho Treasury building and passed
right along tho east side of Lafuvullo
Squaro toward tho Arlington. They
drovo down by tho Arlington and out
on Vurmont avenuo. I walked out of
tho Park pretty rapidly and I saw
them from the corner ol tho Park. I
wont out on the street on cast side of
the square and I looked and suw they
wero going down Vermont avenue 1
hung around tho Park ubout half an
honr or so, and they did not return
and it was very warm, and 1 conclud
ed to let tho matter drop for that night,
so that, alter sitting in tho Paik for
somo time, I wont as usual tn my
homo and went to bed. 1 wont to the
Kiggs llouso and took a room on tho
ollernoon of Thursday, and tho event
mentioned in this preceding talk hap
pened. I am quite certain, on Thurs
day night; it was cither on Wednes
day or on Thursday, 1 am not positive
which, but my impression is that it
happened on Thursday night. On
Kruiuy night after 1 got my dinner at
tbo Riggr House t went up to my
room und 1 took out my revolver ami
1 put it in my hip pocket and I hud
my pnpors wilh me, and I thought 1
possibly might get a chaneo at him
Friday night. I went into Lafayotto
Squaro and sst there, opposite tho
n bile llouso.
IN THE SHADOW Or HEATH.
I had not been there a minuto before
I saw tho President walk out of the
Whito llouso. 'Now.' 1 thought to
myself, 'I bavo got a splendid crninco
at him ; ho is all alono ; thero isn't any
ono around him.' Ho walked along
the cant side ot tho square and down
II street. I followed In in. Ho went
to Mr. Illainos houso on ftlleentli
street. He walked along and when he
got on tho sidewalk opposite Mr.
Ultimo s houso he ions ed up, as n uo
did not know tho ploco exactly, nnd
then he saw the correct number and
walked in. I followed him along and
1 was about half way between II street
and Mr. Hlainc's houso, on tho opposito
side of the street, when he entered the
houso, 1 went into tho alley in the rear
ol Mr. Morion's houso and got out my
revolver and lookod at it and wiped it
off and put it back into my pocket. I
went over lo tho Jl street stoop, at
Warmley'o, and 1 waited there half an
hour, 1 should say, for tho President to
coma out. He camo outand Mr, liluitie
witb him and I wailed at Warmlcy s
until they psBscd by mo on the oppo
sitoside. They walked down II street
ami on tho oast side of Lafayette Square
nnd through the gato nearoat the
Treasury building and inlo tho White
House. Mr. lllaine and tho President
scorned to be talking with tho greatest
earnestness. Mr. lllaine was on tho
left side of tho President a thny walk
od along the street. Illainos right
arm was looped in tho President Ml
arm and they woro engaged in the
mostoarnoat conversation ; thoir bands
wore Tory closo together, lllaine was

striking tho air overy few momonts
and tho President wus drinking it all
in ; and occasionally the President
would striko out his band, thoreby
giving assent to what Mr. Blaine was
saying. They ooomcd to bo in a hila
rious state ot mind and delightful fel
lowsbip and in porleet accord. This
scene made a striking impression on
me: it confirmed what I had read in
the papers and what I had felt for a
long timo lo wit, that tho l'rosident
was entirely undor Mr. Jjluino's iouu
once and that thoy weroin porfoct ao
cord. I may have remained in the
park porhaps half or throe quarters of
an hour, and then I wont down to my
room at tho Riggs House 1 took a
towel bath in my room and wont to
bed ond went to sleep. I woko up
about 4 o'clock Saturday morning and
felt well in mind and ' Jy. My mind
was perfectly clear in regard to remov
ing tho President; 1 bad not the
slighest doubt about my duty to the
Lord and to the American people in
trying to remove tho President, and I
want to say hero, as emphatically as
words can mako it, that, from the mo
ment when 1 fully decided to romnvo
tho President, I havo never lad tho
slightest shadow on my mind ; my pur
poso has been just as clear and just as
determined ns anything could bo. 1
believed thut I was acting tinder a
special Divino authority to remove him,
und this Divino presonco was upon mo
from tho timo when I fully resolved to
remove, him until 1 actually shot him.
It was only by nerving myself W tho
utmost thut 1 did it at ull, and I never
had tho slightest doubt as to tho Di

NEARINU THE END.
"Having heard on Fridi.y from tho
papers, and also by my inquiries of tho
doorkeeper at tho While llouso I'riday
evening, that the President was going
to Long llranch Saturday morning, 1
took my breakfast at tho Riggs llouso
about 8 o'clock. 1 ato well and felt
well in body and mind. 1 went into
Lul'ayotte Square and sat thero some
little time utter breuklust wuil ng lor
0 o'clock to come, and then 1 went to
tho depot and got there ubout U 10. 1
rode there from the park in a 'bob
tailed' car. I lelt tho car, walked up
to a bootblack, got my boots blacked,
and inquired lor a man named John
Taylor, whom, two woeks before, 1
hud spoken to ubout taking me out to
ward tho Congressional Cemetery.
They told mo that Taylor's curriuge
wus not theie, and there wero three or
four Inn Union there who wero very
anxious to servo mo, and finally 1 no
ticed a colored man, and I said lo him :
'What will you take mo out to tho
Congressional Cemetory lor ? Ho
says,' Well, I will tukoyou out there for
8 J. 1 told this colored man privately
thut if I wanted his services I would
let him know in a few minutes. I then
went into tho depot and took my
private papers which I intended for the
press (including a revised edition ol my
book, 'Tho Truth, a Companion to the
Bible'), and stepped up to tho news
stand and asked tho young man in
chargo if 1 could leave those papers
with him a lew minutos, and bo said
'Certainly, 'and ho took them and placed
them up aguinst tho wall on top of
somo other papers. This was about
9;ii), and 1 went into the ladies waiting-room
and 1 looked around, saw
thero were quite a good many people
thero in tho depot und carriages out
side, but 1 did not seo tho President's
carriago. I examined my revolver to
sou that it was all right, and took off
tho paper that 1 had wrapped around
it to keep tho moisture oil. 1 wailed
live or six minutes longer, sat down on
a seat in tho ladies room, and vory
soon tho President drovo up. Uo was
in company with a gentleman who, 1
understand, was Mr. liluino, although
1 did not reeognir.o him. Hits genllo
man looked very old, and be hail a
peculiar kind ol hcudguar on, that 1
did not recognitions that of Mr. Blaino.
I am satisfied that it was Mr. Blaino,
now that my attention has been speci
ally called to it, becuuso it was tho
saino gentleman that 1 saw with tho
Piesident tho night beforo, and I know
positively tbat Ihut gentleman was Mr.
Blaino. Tho President and this gen
tleman drovo up in a plain single seat
ed carriago with ono hurso, this gentlo
man, 1 think, was driving. It was a
singlo carriago a slngloscatcd top
buggy. Tho President seemed to bo
in very earnest and private conversa
tion wilh this gentleman, whoevident
ly was Mr. liluino, although at tho
timo 1 did not rccognizo bun as Mr.
lllaine. Thoy out in tho carriago, I
should say somo two minutos ; they
liuij not completed their conversation
when they reached tho depot, and dur
ing tho interview of two minutes they
finished their conversation. During
this timo they woro engaged in vory
earnest and privato conversation, as 1
havo said. Tho President got out on
tho pavement side and Mr. liluino on
tlio other side. They entered the ladies'
room ; I stood thero watching tho
President and they passed by mo. Uo
foro they reached iho depot I had been
promenading up nnd down tho ladies'
room between the tickot oflico door
nnd tho news-stand door, a spaco ot
somo ten or twelvo teet. 1 walked up
and down thero 1 should say two or
llireo times working myself up, as I
knew tho hour was at hand. The
President and Mr. lllaine camo into
tho ladies' room and walked right by
me ; they did not notice mo aa there
wero quito a number of ladies and chil
dren in tho room.
HOW THE PUESlliENT FELL.
Thoro was nnito a largo crowd of
ticket purchasers at tho gontlemcn's
ticket oflice in tho adjoining room ; tho
depot seemed to be quito full of people
Thero was quito a crowd and commo
tion around, and tho President was in
tho act of passing from the ladios' room
to tho main entrance through tbo door.
1 should say ho was about four or five
feet from tho door nearest tho ticket
oflice, in tho act of passing through the
door to get through tho depot to tho
cars. He was about throo or lour loot
from llio door. I stood five or six feet
behind him, right in the middle of tho
room, and as he was in the act of walk
ing awny from mo I pulled out the re
volver and fired. He straightened up
anil threw his head back and soomod
to bo pertectly bewildered. Ho did
not seem to know what struck him. 1
looked at him ; bo did not drop, 1
thcronpon pulled again. He dropped
his head, seemed to reel, and fell over.
1 do not know whore tho first shot bit;
1 aimed at tbe hollow of his back ; 1
did not aim tor any particular place,
but 1 knew that if I got those two
bullets in his back ho would certainly
go. 1 was in a diagonal direction
Irom the President, to the Northwest,
and supposed both shots struck.
"I was in the act ol putting my re
volver back into my pocket when the
depot policeman aeiiod me and aaid,
'You shot tho President of the United
States.' lie was terribly excited ; ho
hardly knew his bead from his lect,
and I said, 'Keep quiot, my friend ;
keep quiet, my friend. I want to go
to jail.' A moment after tho police,
man seiiod mo by the left arm ; bo
ciineiica me with terrible lorco. An
other gentleman an oldor man, 1
should say, and less robust soiled
mo by tho riubt arm. At this moment
tbo ticket agent and a groat crowd ol
people rushed around mo, and the
ticket agent' said, 'That's him ; that's
him ;' and be pushed out his arm to
seize me around tho neck and 1 says,
'Keep quiet, tny friends ; I want to go
lo atl,' ana tho ofllcers, ono on each
side of mo, rushed mo right off to tbe
police headquarters, and tho officer
who llrst soir.od me by tho hand says,
'This man has just shot tho l'rosident
of 'bo United Stales.' and be was ter
ribly excited. And I said, 'Keep
quiet, my lriend ; keep quiet; I bavo
got somo papers which will explain tho
wnoio matter. They lot go ol me and
they held my bands up ono police
man on one side and ono on Iho other
and thoy went through mo, took
away my rovolvor and what little
chango 1 had, my comb and my tooth
pick, all my pupers, and I guvo thorn
my letter to tho Whito llouso; told
them that I wished they would send
that letter to the While House at onto,
and tho officer began to road my letter
to tho Yt Into House, and in this envel
ope containing my letter to tho Whito
tlouso waB my speech, 'uarheld against
Hancock.' lie glanced his oyo over
tho letter and I was telling him about
sending it at once to tho Whito Houso
to cxpluin tho matter and bo said, 'Wo
will put you to the Whito House I' So
I said nothing after that. They look
me cround a little dark placo and put
me into a coll, locked tho door and went
LOOKINU FOR A WIFE.
In bringing bis autobiography to an
end ho says: "And now 1 speak of
two matters strictly personal. First, 1
am looking for a wifo and see no ob
jection to mentioning it horo. 1 want
an elegant Christian lady of wealth,
under 30, belonging to a first-class

mother died when 1 was only 7 and 1

to have no mother. If my mother bad
lived 1 Dover should havo got into the
Onduia community and my lite, no
doubt, would have boon happier every
way. Nearly throo years utter I left
the community 1 was unfortunately
married. At last I mado up my mind
that I would sever tho bonds and I
was divorced in 1871. I am fond of
lemale society, and 1 jililo tho ladies
are of mo, and 1 should bo delighted
to find my mate."
"Tho second" subject in which ho
dosires to lake tlio public into his con
fidence relors to tho Presidency. "For
twenty years," he writes, "1 have bad
an idea that 1 should be President. 1

Considering thut Captain Ilnwgote
is supposed to have embezzled Govern
ment funds to the amount ol a hun
dred thousand dollars or so, and thut
he has manifested a not nunattiral dis
position to gel away, tho public will
scarcely share tho opinion of his coun
sel that tho requirement of ten thou
sand dollars bail is unreasonable and
oppressivo. There is no occasion lor
any viudictivo troatmont of Howgato,
uud thero is little danger of it. In
deed, tho only dangor is that his case
be allowed to drag along until the
good effect that might result from his
prompt prosecution will be lost. Yet,
after all, oven the most exomplary
punishment of this pretentiousswindler
will scarcely mako atonement for the
criminal carclossness that allowed him
for so long tho unrestricted control of
tho Signal Serrico funds at a time
when his immoral and extravagant
mode of life was notorious to all Wash
ington. Tho Story of llowgato's per
sonal intrigues has boon often repeated
with quito as much detail as necessary,
but tho manner in which bo maintain
ed his official position and influence
has never been clearly explained and
it is difficult lo understand bow a sub
ordinate officer could havo blossomed
nut into such mugnificenco of vice
without tho knowledge ot his superiors.
Howgato is ono of a class common
enough in public lil'o, who mako up in
effrontery what they otherwiso lack,
and with tho slightest of propor quali
fications impose themselves on the pu b
lic as eminent men with such cosy suc
cess that they do not oven find it nee-
cssary to conceal their oxtravaganco of
lite, ihcro aro multitudes of just such
mon not only in Washington but in
ovory ono ol our cities. Thoy occupy
moro or less promtnont positions, with
small salaries or perhaps with no sal
ary at all; yet they wear diamonds
and drive fast horses and drink the
costliest wines, and an easy-going pub
lic dows bclore them and allows them
to select its officers and to handlo ilB
monoy. Occasionally thero comes an
unlookod-for chango of administration
and ono of these men is tripped npand
goes to jail ; but the go ne is not slop
ed bocauso ono. player bos dropped
Uowgato's case is peculiar only be-
causo ho was in the military sorvico,
wboro wo commonly expect lor what
reason it would puzzle us to explain
to find a sternor virtue than in civil
life. Otherwise bo was an adventurer
of tho common sort. Ho protended to
bo a sciontifio man, and the public took
him at his own valuation and gavo
him pro emmenco over tbe hard-work
ing mon of science who know tho hob
lowness ol bis pretonsions but modest
ly hold their tongues. The wortlilcss
noss of bis character must havo been
equally well known to those about
him, but bo know tho way to influ
ence and favor, and it was not till his

official conduct was probably no bet

A SA D A TTEMPT A T IRON Y.
Tho Now York Evening Post shortly
after tho arrost ot Lieutenant Flipper
for embezzlement ironically suggested
that tbo accused should lollow Whit
taker's oxomplo and accuse all in any
way concerned in his prosecution with
entering into a conspiracy against him
on account of his color. It sketched
quite an claboroto defenso of Ibis sort,
which was so intentionally absurd
that wo confess- it nevor occurred to
us that anyone could lail to see that
it was purely ironicul, yet soveral per
sons, it appears, have written to tho
I'osl protesting against tho Injustice
dono by it to West Point and to Col.
Shatter, while others, recognizing its
ironicul character, protested against
its intisllco to Lieutenant r Upper.
To cap tho climax Lieutenant Flip
per, it subsequently appeared, had in all
seriousness, before tho Post articlo was
written, sot up just such a defense as
that paper hod ironically suggested.
Tho Post confesses that it has some
how made a mistake, but does not
seom to exactly comprehend wherein
i. it r.. i. j . i .
l lb uiiensu consists, n uocs uov uuuer
stand, apparently, that it haB been
guilfy ol profanity, and has darod
poko lun at ono of a superior order ot
beings, and made tho matlor worse by
showing that it really proposes seri
ously to judge his perlomunces by the
standards sot up lor judging ordinary
mortals. It is as though an angel had
boon discovered In some situation
which would compromise a moro mor
tal, and tho 1'oft bad shown itself
capable of believing that tho angel
woro guilty ol some human impropriety,
and had sneoringly suggested that tho
next thing tho accused would do
would bo to protend that the ladder
and jimmy beneath the window had
boon put thero by somo onomy to an
gels, and that, as for himself, he had
down into the room. Of course ovory
ono brought up in the beliel that an
gels aro winged beings incnpahlo of
sin would either fail to seo tbe irony
of such a remark or would resent it if
ho did seo It, and ask why an angel
should not sol up such a defense. '1 he
Post, we fear, does not fully under
stand Its own parly's state of mind.
