A TALE OF WESTERN LIFE
One day, in early winter, my husband
received a summons to Burke's settle
ment, to unite a couple in the bonds of
wedlock. It was especially requested
that his wife should accompany him, as
he would be expected to remain over
night Ai partake of the festivities.
It was twenty miles to the settlement.,
and we arrived au the log house of. Mr.
Burke aboue noon.. A dozen tow-haired
children were at the door,. awaiting our
arrival. They telegraphed the news in
"•Afili to, nir.rm 1 1141e4 , the elder and
his woman. The.'re ',nothing but folks !
She's got a man's hat on, and a turkey's
wing in front of it; his nose is just like
dad's—as crooked as a cow horn squash."
Alas for Mr. Morrison's aquiline nose,
of which he was very vain.
" Sam!" cried a shrill female voice
from the interior of the cabin, " run out
and grab the rooster, and I'll clap him
into the pot. Sal, you quit that churn
and sweep the floor. Kick that dodger
under the bed. Bill, you wipe the tal
low out of that chair, for the minister's
wife, and be spry about it."
Further remarks were cut short by our

no chance to comb it since last week.
Work must be did, you know. Powerful
sharp air, hain't it ? Shoo, there ! Bill,

Sal, take lady's thing. Set right up to
the fire, marm. Han's cold ? . Well, Just

Bill presented his shaggy head, but I
declined with an involuntary shudder.
"Laws, if she ain't actually shivering !"
cried Mrs. Burke. " Bring in some more

A. fearful squall announced the execu
tion of the rooster, and shortly after he
was bouncing about in a four quart ket
tle, hung over the fire. Sal returned to
her churn, but the extraordinary visitors
must have made her careless, for she up
set the concern, and butter and butter
milk went swimming over the floor.
" Grab the ladle, and help dip it up,
Bill," cried Mrs. Burke. " Take keer,

how folks will be so nasty Dick, do
you keep your feet out of the butter
milk ; it wont be fit for the pigs when the
butter is gathered. Drive that hen out ;
she's picked up a pound of butter already.

the bride elect, thumping away at the

dinner was ready, and you may be sure I
did not injure myself by over-eating.
Night came on early, and after a so
cial chat about the event of the morrow,
I signified my desire to retire.
Sal lighted a pine knot, and began
climbing a ladder in one corner of the
room. I hesitated.
" Come on," cried she, don't be
afraid. Sam and Bill and Dick, and all
the rest of ye, duck yer heads while the
elder's wife goes up. Look out for the
loose boards, marm ; and mind or you will
smash your brains out against that beam.
Take care of that hole where the chim
ney comes thro."
Her warning came too late. I caught
my foot on the end of a board, stumbled
and fell headlong through what appeared
to be interminable space, but it was only

What Party Does the Retrenching ?
Our Democratic opponents are con
stantly ,rying out for retrench lent and
relbrm, but when it is proposed practi
cally to enter on the performance.of such
work - , the Democracy are missing when
1116 r votes are needed. It is conceded
that ?Iv! alTitirl; or the national adminis
tration are conducted entirclyunderthe in
spiration of Democratic influence. Every
Department, but that of War, is con
trolled by the Democracy. The moment
the war ended, Congress began to cut,
down public expense , :, while General
Grant lost no time in mustering out large
bodies of men. The last Congress so re
trenched as to be able to reduce taxation
120,060,000. This fact is never allowed
to see the light of day in any of our Dem
ocratic cotemporaries. Another singular
fact is aim*, the present Congress has re
duced the estimates for appropriations to
carry on all the Departments of the Gov
ernment. The sum asked by the State
Department has been materially reduced ;
the Secretary of the Navy was compelled
to reduce his estimates S2o,ollo—the op
erations of the Treasury Department
have been so curtailed by Congress as t,
save $52.000,000. These are facts, prac
tical evidence of the disposition of a
Republican Congress to retrench, but to
such facts the Democracy never allude.
