OLD PEMBERTII'S GIRL
A THANKSGIVING- MYSTERY.
T. C HARBAUGH.
It waB the night before Thanksgiving, and
a bare-headed boy rode at break-neck speed
down the main street of a certain 'Western
village, ana drew up in front of the post
office, where was always to be found at that
hour a crowd of loafers.
Everybody knew at a glance that the
youth was old Enos Pemberton's hired boy,
and expectation was at once on tiptoe.
"Patty Pemberton has drownded her
self I" cried the boy.
He was surrounded in an instant
"Where?" vociferated 20 voices at once.
"In the water, of course ! D'ye 'spose
she do it in a plowed field ?"
"Can't they resuscitate her?" put in a
young doctor with gold spectacles.
"They'll wait till they find her, first."
"Ohl" said the crowd in perfect unison;
and the boy, having delivered his message,
rode back, leaving the entire population of
the village to follow at its leisure, which
proved the greatest haste imaginable.
Every one knew "Old Pemberton's girl."
She was a wild, romping creature, and full
of tom-boy tricks, although there was noth
ing particularly "bad" about her. She
could break a colt and bake a pie to perfec
tion, which her sisterMolly, just some from
school, could not do; though, when it came
to botany and the languages, she left Patty
"far in the shade," as Patty herself ex
It was a queer freak for "Old Pemberton's
girl" to drown herself. She seemed to enjoy
life, had no real lovers that anyone knew
of, and was the last person capable of com
mitting such a deed to the people's no
tions.5 The Pemberton farm was the largest in the
neighborhood. A part of it was very wild
ground. A deep stream flowed through this
particular portion, and, in some places, its
course was marked with chasms whose walls
were rough and lofty. It was agreed by the
excited populace, as it swarmed out to the
Pemberton homestead, which was within
sight of the village, that Patty must have
fallen into the creek, for the idea of suicide
could not be entertained.
It was soon learned that the body had not
been found. The stream had been searched,
and the whole neighborhood was still at the
task; but at last reports Patty was still
"They found her bonnet near the Deep
Hole," said Enos to the young doctor in the
gold spectacles. "She went into the woods
to look for table flowers for to-morrow. Mr.
Phillips, my daughter Molly's city friend,
is to be with u and Patty thought to make
things sort o' cheerful for him. I believe
you've met Mr. Phillips?"
The doctor thought he had; yes, he remem
bered an introduction by Miss Molly. Mr.
Phillips was a nice young Gentleman. If he
(the doctor) was not mistaken, he was a
person well known in the city.
"One of the rising business men of
2T ," added Enos Pemberton, promptly.
"He was afraid he conldn't be with us to
morrow, as his uncle, from whom he will
inherit a comfortable fortune, is very low;
but Molly heard from him this morning to
the effect that the uncle had surprised them
all by getting better. Xow poor Patty has
cast "a cloud over our Thanksgiving, and
just, too, when Jar. .Phillips needs rest!
The doctor hoped that everything would
yet "turn out for the best" and then joined
the hunters along the creek.
"Ain't it queer?" asked young Zeke Zeb
edee, as he tnrnst his big brown hands into
the capacious .pockets of his overalls and
looked into his companion's face. The
two had been the most zealous searchers for
s'Qll Pemberton's girl."
"What's queer?" was the response.
"Why, that she didn't leave any note
behind. That's customary, you know.
They've found nothin' but the bonnet."
"It strikes me that they'll find nothing
"Looks that way."
"Jealous?" roared Jack Juniper. "I'd
like to know what'd make Patty Pemberton
jealous. Come, Zekel you can't catch me
that way. Why, she'd rather break the
scrubbiest colt in the kentry than fall in
love with a king!"
young Zeke doubtinsly shook his head.
"All gals are more or less queer," said he.
"You don't know when some are in love,
nor when they get jealous. Patty told me
once that "
"Told yon, Zeke?"
"Told me!" emphasized young Zebedee.
'Well, that's queer, too; but go on. What
did old Pemberton's girl tell you?"
Zeke, who was an overgrown country
youth, but not at all bad looking, assumed a
confidential air, calculated to impress his
"She told me that she didn't intend to
remain single always," he went on. "She
said she had several mighty good friends,
and among 'em she named who do you
"Doctor Lancet, the young chap who is
over yonder looking forher now?"
"is o! She mentioned young Mr. Phillies
from the city."
"He's Mo'lly's capture!" was the retort
"They're looking for him on the late train
"An it was to decorate his Thanksgiving
table with flowers that Patty went to the
Zeke's listener appeared dumfounded for
"It isn't natural!" said he, at length.
"There's all the difference in the world be
tween the two girls. One like Patty
wouldn't strike a fine chap like Phillips.
Why, he's got money hoarded np.Hhey say,
and when he takes a wife he wants one
with the rough edges polished a little.
Patty's a diamond in the rongh. Don't tell
me that Pemberton's girl was jealous of her
Young Zebedee did not persist, although
it was evident that the argument had not
convinced him of his error; and the two
went back to the search with opinions of
All night they plied the sorrowful search.
Litrhts were seen and voices were heard
along the turbulent creek, and messengers
from the different parties arrived at the
farm house from time to time.
The late train brought the Thanksgiving
guest from the city. Young Mr. Phillips
was horrified at the situation. He had an
ticipated the most enjoyable Thanksgiving
of his life, and to have his hopes dashed to
earth in this terrible manner was well, he
could not do justice to his feelings.
Thanksgiving Day dawned with the mys
teryof Patty Pemberton's disappearance still
unsolved. The sun crept over the hilltops,
and birds sang sweetly among the boughs;
and nothing in nature" told that an awful
calamity had fallen upon the neighborhood.
Mr. Phillips had been one of the last to
come back from the well-hunted territnrr.
He had tramped the banks of the creek for
several miles, tearing his fine clothes on
stones and briers. He had forded it in
numerous places, to the utter ruination of
his stylish pantaloons, and at the end of his
hunt for the time he looked very unlike a
business man who would soon inherit a cool
fittv thousand from a Midas-lice uncle.
Zeke Zebedee saw the young merchant
come back to the house in a most forlorn
condition. He was barely recognizable.
"I wish Jock could see 'im now," mur
mured Zeke. "He's been huutin' all night
or ever since he came. Hasn't let up a
minute. I'll bet he goes back as soon'she
swallers a bite. Thar's pluck in that young
chap. He likes the gal what kin jump like
the cow jumped over the moon. That's what
Young Phillips said a few words in a low
tone to M iss Holly and her mother, emptied
& cup of coffee and started for the creek
again. As he crossed the barnyard, which
was the shortest cut, lie encountered Zefe
Zebedee. who evidently had been waiting
for him. The country youth showed signs
of his participation in the fruitless hunt for
Pemberton's girl; but he greeted Phillips
with a light "good mornin'," and was soon
at hit side.
"Goin' back to it, eh?" ejaculated Zeke.
"Yes. I don't see any reason for giving
"Nearly all of 'em have gone home."
"I know it Are you going to follow
Young Zebedee drew back and looked half
resentfully at Phillips.
"Me' Me Zeke Zebedee quit the
hunt?" he exclaimed. "You'll find me
there till this mvsterv is solved!"
Phillips put but his hand. It was soft
and small, and in a moment was lost in
Zeke's giant palm. The two went across the
fields together. More than once Phillips
caught his companiou eyeing him in a
quizzical manner; but as often as caught
Zeke would suddenly transfer his gaze to
"So they're goin' to have the turkey for
all, re thev?" suddenly asked Zeke.
"I don't know."
"An' Pattv's mince nies. too?"
.The young merchant looked sharply at
"Who says so?" he inquired.
"Old Pemberton. He don't know whether
his gal 's dead or alive, but the unsartainty
ain't goin' to interfere with the Thanksgivin
dinner they were gettin' up for you."
Phillips halted. They were in the heart
of the wood, through which rushed the wild
creek at its swiftest pace, and the noise of
the foamy current at times filled their ears.
The sunlight did not penetrate to that spot,
and the trees stood so thick that one might
easily conceal himself among them.
There seemed to be an insinuation, not
unmixed with sarcasm, in Zeke's last sen
tence; but it was not this that broke the
"They certainly won't do that." said he.
"It wouldn't be right under the circum
stances." "Old Pemberton didn't stop to think.
He's got a scheme in his head, and an eye
to business. I wouldn't keer so darned
much about the turkey, but there's the
mince pies! Patty baked 'em! You can't
stop the feast by going back; so come
Phillips felt Zeke's grip on his arm, and
in another moment he W3S dragged toward
the stream. A change had suddenly cbme
over the country youth. He now looked
madly at Phillips, but the young merchant
did not seem to take notice of it
"Let's startSn where Heft off," said Zeke
when they had reached the high banks of
"Just as you say." was the answer, spoken
The two went down to the water by a
dangerous path. Here and there they were
compelled to cling to the sharp, cutting
edges of the rocks to accomplish their ob
ject, and once Phillips, who was ahead,
almost lost his footing. He could not help
thinking how easy it would be for Zeke to
send him headlong to the bottom of the
gorge by a slight push, for he had come to
look upon his companion as one not rightly
balanced in some things. Was Zeke in
love with Patty, and did he think that his
rigid search for her meant more than the
mere restoration of her to her narents?
Once Phillips thought of stopping midway
between cliff and current and telling him
the truth; bnt he sealed his lips and kept on.
At the foot of the wall Zeke explained
nis ineory. it was mat .ratty had fallen,
not thrown herself into the water, and
that the current had carried her far from
the fatal spot and left her in one of the
many caverns which abounded along the
Zeke's plan was to search several of these
caverns, one in particular. He said it tould
be reached by following the water into it
"But" he added, looking half contempt
uously at Phillips' city garments, "it'll
ruinate store clothes like your'n."
".Nevermind my clothes. I want to find
Miss Patty. Come on!"
Zeke led the merchant to the entrance of
the cavern which he proposed to explore.
The water was rushing in with a steady
roar, and in a manner terrible enough to
deter the stoutest-hearted.
"It's not hard to do if yon know how,"
smiled Zeke. "Watch me an' foller if you
There was a subtle sting in the last words,
an 8 Phillips detected it
The following moment the country yonth
sprang into the current and was whisked
out of sight in an instant Phillips fol
lowed, for a little while the merchant
foundhimself in a flood of rmilincr v,ti
and tlen he emerged therefrom in a dark
plae, and upon wet slippery ground.
"What'd I tell you ?" said a voice which
he recognized as young Zebedee's, and then
he felt a grip on his arm.
Zeke took from a tin box some matches
which had escaped the searching qualities of
the water, and a little bunch showed the pair
the walls of the cavern.
Phillips saw his companion hold his
torch'near the ground.
"What'd I tell vou?" suddenly tried
Zeke, looking up. "Look at this!"
Phillips stopped and uttered a sharp cry
Tne light of the matches shone upon the
print ot a shoe!
"You're a capital detectivel" cried the
merchant "Why, you've found Patty!"

"I've found nothing but that," he said,
pointing to the footprints, and then he
sprang erect and clutched Phillip's shoul
der. "By the eternal heavens! I want to know
a thingortwo," he went on.talking hoarsely
like a man who has lost control of his bet
ter judgment "Yon came down hyer to do
one, if not two things. Yon came to eat
Patty's Thanksgivin' mince pies.an' "
He seemed to choke.
"And what else, Zeke?" asked Phillips
dissembling his fear he had fear of the
young giant before him.
"An an' to make love to her!" blurted
Zeke. "You know you did! Thev say
you're after Molly. Old Pemberton wants
you to take the gal what knows the hifalu-
tin names oi tne nowers; but I knows
whar yonr eyes ar Don't I know what

"What was that?"
"That you were one o' her best friends,

She bated them pies for you, Mr. Phillips.
I watched her through the kitchen winder
and I saw her skullop them with her
thumb all because you were coming
down. Now, Patty is somewhere in this
place, an', by Jerusalem! you sha'n'tlook
over her Thanksgivin' pies into her eyes un
Zeke peroration was harshly invaded
by the sudden appearance of a ghostly
uguic itvm tuc giuura, ana, at xne touch
ot a hand he staggered back with a wild
"Patty, by Jupiter!"
Yes, before the astonished men stood
"Old Pemberton's girl," her clothes almost
in tatters, but still the same Patty of the
deep, chestnut brown eyes!
Half an hour later Patty found herself
walking home between Zeke and Phillips.
She had told the story of her adventures;
how she had fallen into the creek; back to
consciousness in the depths ot the cavern,
from which she would never have escaped
but for Zeke's thoughtfulness: and when she
had concluded, she looked first at the
brawny young yokel, and then at the
trimmer figure of the Thanksgiving guest
"I baked the pies for Mr. Phillips, for I
knew he was coming," said she; "but I
thought of Zeke at the time, and wondered
ifhMrnm tnft lfTM uIiIm
if he'd come, too, if I'd ask him."
Zeke blushea to his temples.
As the Thanksgiving mystery had been
solved in such a happy manner, the dinner
which followed was the most enjoyable one
ever discussed under Enos Pemberton's
It was observed that Zeke blnshed again,
when Patty passed the mince pies, and
when Mr. Pemberton said "More turkey,
Zeke?" he stammered and looked at Phillips.
It turned out that the young merchant's
real guest was Miss Molly, and before the
Thanksgiving dinner had digested the day
for a double wedding had been set, and
when it came one of the brides was "Old
THE PLAINTIFF WON.
A MnsUtrnte Who Was Willing to Decide
New York Sun.1
"I was practicing law in a town just
across the Ohio river," said the Eentnckian
in the party. "There was a country Judge
nearby who used to hold court in his parlor
inthe winter, and on the lawn in front of
his house in the shade of a big oak tree in
the summer. An arm chair tilted back
against the tree was the seat ot justice, and
a weather beaten board lying aoross the tops
of two whisky barrels answered for the
bench. Attorneys, plaintiff, defendant and
witnesses sat or stood immediately in front,
and surrounding them in a circle were the
curiously inclined. The case before the
Judge on the occasion I have referred to was
a horse case Stokes versus Billings. The
plaintiff stated his side of the case and was
about to call a witness.
" 'I d'shide lo' th' plaintiff, hiccoughed
the Judge, who was almost stupid with
" 'But, sir, you have not heard the de
fendant's side of the case at all,' said the
opposing attorney. 'My client has a strong
case, sir,' and he proceeded to elucidate it"
" 'I d'shide fo' th' d'iendant,' the Judge
"This brought the plaintiff's attorney to
his feet. 'Yon have heard no witnesses yet,
Your Honor,' and he went on to tell what
he should prove by some of his leading
'swearers,' as they are termed in Kentucky.
"The Magistrate was again convinced
I'll change my d'shisun, he said. Til
d'shide fo' th plaintiff."
"This sort of thing went on for some time,
until finally the effect of the Judge's pota
tions overcame him altogether. His head
fell forward on the bench, and he couldn't
be shaken back into sensibility. It hap-
ftened to be the plaintiff's inning, and the
awyer, placing a pen in the Judge's hand,
guided it so that the decision was written in
the Judge's book of record. It stood, too,"

that several of them were waiting for clearer
instructions from their respective colonies.
It was signed after these instructions had

Congress have quite all been published in

It seems to me that Congress ought to make
an appropriation to have them all printed,
together with letters and other manuscripts

The journals are now, of course, necessarily

members, unless by leave, and only a record

Bearish European Reports Take the Back
bone Out of tent Pork Active
and Higher The Advance
Chicago Trading in wheat was light to-day
and the market was dull. There was no spe
cial news from outside, and business was Urn.
ited both on local and outside accounts.
There was some buying of December and sell
ing for May by some parties, but this neces
sarily was not of any special significance, possi
bly covering and evening up of the former and
puttingout new lines for May. However, one
prominent local trader has been credited with
being a free buyer for December the past few
days, and manip ulation was again hinted. The
opening was about liQc lower than yester
day's closing, advanced lo, ruled easier,
and closed K6'ic lower for December and Mfi
lower for May than closing figures of yester
day. European market advices failed to give any
encouragement to holders. It is estimated
that the visible supply of wheat will show an
increase of about 750.000 to 1,000,1)00 bushels.
It was reported that some Chicago parties in
tended bringing down another large quantity of
wheat from the Northwest At the close of
'Change it was rumored that a cargo of wheat
had been taken at New York for shipment to
the South of France.
Com The market opened at yesterday's
closing prices, was dull and Inactive, prices
varying barely Ho up to 12 o'clock, when a
Erominent local speculator purchased freely of
lecember, and prices advanced Jc local
shorts covering, and final quotations wereMlo
higher than yesterday.
Oats were traded in to a fair extent, and an
unsettled feeling prevailed. The market opened
weak and prices receded KJc, but rallied and
museu aieauy. ae strength was due to the
advance in December corn, also to purchases
for May by a large operator.
In mess pork, rather mdre doing and the feel
ing was firmer. November was advanced 17K
20cand other deliveries 7K10c, and the ad
vance was moderately well suported.
In lard very little business was transacted
and the feeling was steadier. Prices were ad
vanced 25c and closed steady.
In short rib sides a little more life was mani
fested and the feeling was steadier. Prices
rather favored sellers, though no material
change was noted.

BATtTBDAT, November 9. 1889.
The distinctive features of the past week's
trade in produce lines have been the upward
tendency of butter and eggs. Elgin cream
ery butter is 2fo higher than last week's
quotations. At the advance, markets are
rather slow, and the feeling among dealers
here is that the Elgin Board went a little
beyond the facts. Ohio creamery is offered
at the same figures as a week ago, and the
demand is light The movement of all dairy
Products has been slow the past week, and the
advance in Elgin creamery, is not justified by
facts as developed in this neck of the woods.
Fresh eggs are very scarce and very firm, at
prices a shade better than a week ago.
Henrcity of Poultry and Egg.
An interview with a Clinton peddler who
scours the country 50 miles or more west of
Pittsburg every week developed some facts
wnich are here jotted down. Said he: 'In an
experience of 15 years through the region from
here to New Cumberland, I hate never known
the time when poultry was so scare at this
time of year as It Is now. I have found It impos
sible to secure one-fourth the number of tur
keys ordered by my customers for Thanks
giving times; noram I half able to meet de
mands for other poultry. There has been no
time in my memory when poultry was so scarce
in tne section west and sontbwest ot Pittsburg
as it is this falL
"There Is also an unusual scarcity of eggs
through the territory where I travel. Onac
count of a late wet spring, hens were kept
hatching later than usual, and the young
chickens came in so late that tney have not
arrived as yet at the age tofurnish eggs. ...Ma
A Notable Contrast.
"Last year at this timefl was able to bring
300 dozens of fresh eggs every week to tle
Pittsburg markets. This week the best I could
do, after scquring the country in every direc
tion, was to bring 90 dozen, less than one-third
my average. Those I had on band went off
like hot cakes to dealers at 26o per dozen, and
for next week my entire stock is already or
dered at 28c per dozen.
''Butter has also taken an upward turn since
my last triD to the city. For a few weeks past
the sopnly of country bntter was above de
mand, and I had some trouble disposing of my
stock. This Is now entirely changed. While
there is no difficulty securing all the butter
wanted through the country, the demand his
very much improved in Pittsburg the past
week, and I have found ready sale tor all good
stock I brought this week at2Scper pound to
A Fruit and Potato Famine.
"In the section of country about Clinton and
through the Panhandle region, while the sup
ply of apples is much below last year's yield,
there is sufficient for all home demands, and
band-picked apples are sold at 85e a bushel.
Last year they could not be given away In that
"Potatoes are rotting so generally and so
fast that the farmers about Clinton are now
looking to Pittsburg for supplies. Potatoes are
now worth more In Clinton than -in Pittsburg.
On my return trip last wees: 1 took two loads
of Western potatoes from this city, for which I
paid 40c per bushel, and found quick sale for
mem awoc, totna larmers round auont Clin
ton. "We have never in my time had a better crop
of hay, oats and wheat in our section than this
season. But in all fruit and vegetable lines the
yield has been below the average. The only
fruits raised in oar section In sufficient quan
tity for home demand are apples."
Short Receipt of Cereals.
It will be seen, by reference to the domestic
market column, that grain and hay receipts for
the week are more than 100 carloads short of
last week. Notwithstanding the decline, of re
ceipts, the supply is still in excess of demand,
and markets are In favor of the buyer. Hay
and oats are particularly slow owing to heavy
receipts. Corn Is firm, and shows an upward
Ths new freight rates on flour will tra into
effect on November'20, and Minneapolis millers
are figuring on the extra price. The movement
of flour has been very active this week, and all
signs point to better prices in the near future.
Low grades are slow, but fancy patents have,
no doubt, touched the lowest point for this
A RUSH FOB 8HELTEE
Expected When the Flitting Time Cornea
Around Next Spring.
From opinions expressed by nearly all the
real estate dealers and agents, it may be ac
cepted as a foregone conclusion that renting
will be unusually lively next spring.
Houses are scarce now and wlll be scarcer
then, as there is a constant inflow of popu
lation, and everything will be picked np
early. Business houses will probably bring
more money, as will fine dwellings, but the
general run of tenements will be held at
about present figures.
Although landlords are slow about sign
ing the agreement for a change of moving
day, it is thought they will give it their atten
tion in time for adoption next spring.
Speaking of labor, Mr. Romero, the Mexican
Minister, while inspecting, along with the
other Pan-Americans, the operation of wire
drawing' at Oliver's mill, remarked to one of
the proprietors: "American workingmen sur
prise me. Tbey have a manly bearing an air
of self-respect and self-reliance which can be
seen in no other country. They are remarka
bly intelligent, too, capable of explaining all
the processes of their work, and prompt in the
discharge of their duties. With such meo.no
wonder your country is leading all others in
manufacturing. The United States is the only
nation without serfs."
Pittsburg workers are accustomed to such
compliments and tbey full; deserve them, too.
They will not blush, therefore, when they learn
what Mr. Romero has said of them.
Mount Airy, tho land which Mrs.Scheuley
has donated to the city for -a park is only 20
minutes' drive from the Court House. The
nearest point of th park to the city is at Ro
quet and Jonoaire streets, which intersect with
Forbes street and Fifth avenue, about two
miles from the City HalL On one side it Is
bounded by the west fork of Four Mile run and
by the Junction Railroad. On another side it
is confined by Forward avenue, which is lo
cated on Four Mile run, and reaches to within
800 feet of Second avenue.
The property of the Murdoch heirs adjoins it
on one side, and Judge Magee andMr.Hoch
are the owners of lands which lie adjacent.
On the 22d Inst, a charter will be applied
for for the McEee's Rocks Coke Company.
The incorporators are N F. Santord, of the
Sanford Coke Company; George 8. Qriscom,
formerly proprietor of the Monongahela
.House, and now an omcer 01 the Pittsburg and
Lake Erie Railroad; H. O. Bonnell, of Youngs

Erie Railroad, near MoEee's Rocks, where the
works of the Sanford Coke Company, which
the new organization! intended to supplant.
Cotton used to be king. Then coal was
crowned. Now coke Is a candidate for regal
honors. An aristocracy of industry Is a good
thing for any country to have.
Although trading In stocks was light yester
day a vast number of figures was made, Indi
cating a disposition on the part of brokers to do
