an intimation tbat I bad called upon ber
attorneys, and, if Agreeable aud conven

mediately tbe garcon returned with tbe
invitation to "please wulk up."
THE ATPEARANCK OF THE LADY.
In person Mis. Young is tall and slen
der, with a remarkably sweet face, fea
tures regular and soft, eyes dark blue,
bair very dark brown aud tbrowu loosely
bebind Rafter the fashion of the school
nires of fifteen. It is not always safe
to judge by appearances, but nature nev
et gave that countenance to a hedgehog
or virago. TLe first thought was tbat
the prophet was intensely stupid to have
driven that beauty from the harem.
' At the present time tbe lade ia twenty
eight years of age, but ber ill health im
parts a languid expression to ber coun
tenance that might suggest to tbe mind
mat sne was a tew years older, it was
in remarking upon her health tbat I saw
the feeling of her soul upon polygamy
She said that her health had been failing
for the last four years. "The mental
suffering that she had endured in her
polygamic life had affected Iter to such a
degree tbat she had become utterly iu
different to life itself, and would rather
have died than lived.
Reporter I trust, Madame, that you
will not thiuk it impertinent if I a.-k you
bow you came to enter Brigham Young's
family with your feelings so averse to
the polygamic institution.
Lady Nothing on the subject, sir, can
be impertinent, as I with tbe facts known
to the world.
I was living on my father's farm, in
Little Cottonwood, when, in the summer
of 1SG7, Brigham Young informed my
father that be wanted me for a wife.
Brigham, with a number of the apostles
aud el J era from this city' was visiting
Cottonwood on a Sunday and held two
meetings for preaching It was at the
close of the forenoon service on that oc
casion tbat he walked up to me and said,
'Had I not better accompany yon home.'
I said, "Certainly, if you wish to." Ou
the way to my father's bouse Brigham
atked me if I had any propoeala of mar
riage siuce I bad obtained a divorce from
my first husband. I answered him, 'Yes
that I had several proposals.' He then
asked if there was any one of them that
I wished to accept. I said, 'No," on
which he said that he would like to give
me a little advice.
He advised me not to wait to marry a
person whom I loved, but to marry some
good man whom I could raspect and look
up to and receive good counsel from.
HE GOES A SPARKING.
At the close of the afternoou serv ice
he went up to my father, took, him aside
aud talked for at least two hours to him
about me, and told him how he bad
watched me from my infancy, and saw
me grow up to womanhood, had always
loved me and intended to marry me, but
having taken Amelia just after the law
was passed in Congress prohibiting polyg
amy, he feared to take another wife soon
after, leet it should make trouble, or he
would have taken me then. My marriage
with a young man was unlooked for to
bim, and when be was made acquainted
with it be did not just like to stop it, be
said, and so be let it go on, but always
hoped tbat the time would come when he
would have me.
THE OLD SINNER SETS HIS TRAP."
He wanted father and mother to use
all their influence with me, as it would
be the beet thing I could do. He asked
father if a good house, well furnished.
and $1,000 a year pocket money would
be enough for me, and added that if it
was not enough I should bave more
Father answered that' be thought tbat
would be sufficient.
' HORRIFIED AT THE PROPOSAL.
.- - When father come home he -told moth
er by herself ; then they told me. ' I
cannot describe my feelings; I was frigh
tened. Tbe thought of it was a perfect
horror. I thought father bad gone crazy
and I would not believe bis statement
for hours. When I realized that ft was
a fact I .
COULD DO NOTHIItG BUT CRV.
The idea of an old man, sixty-seven
years of age, the husband of about twen
ty five wives living, asking me, at twenty-two.
to be added to the number, filled
me with the utmost abhorrence, and
when I saw that iny parents were under
his influence and sustained bis proposi
tion, I was ready to die in despair. Oh 1
the horrible hours that I spent in crying
and moaning no tongue can picture.
. BRIGHAM IS A PECKSNIFFIAN ROLE.
He became very kind to my parents.
and saw father frequently. He sent for
me to come to the city on several occa
sions and met me at my father's city
residence, and talked to me about mar
riage ; told me how pare his feelings
were, and that his only motive was to do
me good, save me in the kingdom, and
make me a queen. All that had no effect
;'pon me ; it only disgusted me the more
and the. f ir that I dare not resist him
never left roe. Tviis continued for near-jju-jjiiUv
st-Jest tr-othe had some
business transactions with Brigham and
one of his sons, which resulted in a trou
ble, and ultimately in financial injury to
my brother. Brigham had been very
angry with bim, and threatened to cut
bim off from tbe church. I heard of
those threats, and believing at tbat time
iu Mormouism, I heard them with deep
sorrow, aud confess that, in hopes of
turning Brigbam's anger away from my
brother, I began to entertain the thought
that I would yield to his request. I
argued, as many inexperienced persona
do, that as I had a sorrowful life, my
heart was crushed, my future life was
nothing, and if I could sacrifice myself
for my brother's interest, and please my
parents, I would at last submit. Fin
ally BRIGHAM NAMED TUB MARRIAGE DAT,
and informed me, through my father that
what I required in preparation for my
marriage he would furnish ; but I would
accept nothing. A day before the mar
riage he brought to me three dress pat
ternsone fciik and two merino and
banded to me a purse with a $50 bill.
Ou the April, 1868, 1 was married
to bim in tha Eudowment House, by
llebcr C. Kimball, bis first counsellor.
My father and mother were present, aud
others. Brigbam's brother Joseph also
took to himself a wife at the same time.
Alter the ceremony I walked over with
him to the conference, and in the evening
I returned to my father's house and re
mained there for a mouth.
THE raoPIIET'3 LOVE OF SHORT DURA
TION For the first few months I had consid
erable of bis attentions ; bis visits were
frequent ; afier that bis business cares
so occupied bim, be said, that be could
only call about once in three months.
After that he came 'just as it happened.'
I never loved him and never said to
bim that I loved him. I looked upon
him as a

ried association with Biigbam Young, his
inanucr of providing for mo was of the
meanest character. 1 bad to come np,
even from the farm, four miles distant, to
the commissary of bis family, and was
glod when I ooulj get five pounds of
sugar, one quarter of a pound of tea, a
bar of soap, and a pouud of candles.
Tbat I would get about once a month.
About a year ago I complained to bim
tbat I had not sugar euough, and ho al
lowed me what I required. ..
RETURNS TO TnE CITYV
When 1 returned to the city he furn
ished me a house in a very ordinary way
and I continued to live in tbe best man
ner I could. But it was the same stingy
way. When a beef was killed I got
some fresh meat ; but 1 was frequently
months without seeing it.
SUE KEEPS BOARDERS.
Tired oi this manner of existence, I
s ked bis permission to keep boarders
The' permission was granted, and I kept
boarders from last March- My bouse
was small, and the business was not ve
ry lucrative. I consequently went to
bim six weeks ago and asked him to aid
me to give-me some assistance to make
life tolerable. He seemed angry, and
complained that he had so many expen
ses and that he wanted me to keep my
self to take the money that I bad saved
to keep myself aud family with it. I
got a stove out of him, but that was all.
During tbe last year I only obtained
from him two calico dresses.
' . FELL SICK.
This interview made me sick, and I
was in bed for a week with heart sick
ness. One of the boarders who was a
lawyer and bis wife asked . what ailed
me, and I told the story of my troubles
aud inquired if there was no redress.
He said tbat he thought there was, aud
be would consult with other lawyers and
see what could be done. : During all my
sickness while I was his wife he showed
the ntmost indifference He would hear
what 1 had to say, bat make almost no
answer. Last fall I was attacked , with
pleurisy, and I managed to get to his
office to see him to tell bim how ill I
was, and tbat I needed some few things
He appeared to comprehend nothing and
finally called "John," tbe commissary
for his family, bad told bim to get me
two bits worth of fresh meat. - He has
not been in my house for nearly - a year.
About five weeks ago I got very
weak. I con't know what was the mat
ter with me probably general debility
from, grief and mental Buffering. My
boarders, seeing my condition, aided ine
freely and were very kind to me. -1 re
solved to leave his house, packed np my
clothes and instructed an auctioneer, two
weeks ago to take away the furniture
and sell it, as a part of it was my own,
and I thought I was entitled to tbe rest.
The Buit commenced has- been instituted ,
bv.mv attornevs. who have every confi-
dence that I can obtain alimony ; but
whether I do or not; I think the wotld

Besohticms of SepuUicaa State Con
vention at Earrisburg Aug. 13th
: We Republicans, of PejaKlvania in
convention assembled renew our expres
sion of confidence in and devotion to the
principles of Republicanism, and declare,
First. Tbat we heartily endorse and
re adopt the Republican National and
State platforms of 1872.
Second. That the National Adminis
tration commands our continued confi
dence, and is entitled, by its promotion
of tbe best interests and prosperity of
the nation, to the earnest support of the
Third. Tbat the administration of
Governor Uartrant calls fur our wann
est approbation. Paring the short time
he has been in the Executive department
he bas established a State policy which
has justly endeared him to the people of
this Commonwealth and has amply jus
tified the coufiJence we have placed in
Fourth. That while earnestly in favor
of constitutional reform, and of such a
revision of our State constitution as will
make it an effective instrument in pre
venting and punishing the corrupt abases
that have crept in nnder tbe present sys
tem, we demand emphatically and espe
cially that whatever is doue or left un
done, tbe main purpose Tor which the
Constitutional Convention was called the
absolute prevention of special legislation
shall be so placed before tbe people as to
secure their separate and decisive ex
Fifth. Tbat the reduction of the State
debt from $11,000,000 to $26,000,000,
the repeal of all State taxes on real es
tate, the establishment of schools for the
support of soldiers' orphans, tbe main
tenance of our excellent and prosperous
system of cemmon schools, and tbe es
tablishment of the policy of paying off
onr debt at the rate of 92.000 000 a year
together with the generally flourishing
coudition of our prosperous old Common
wealth, are evidences that the Republi
cans during their twelve years control in
Pennsylvania have faithfully administer
ed ber affairs, and that tbe reins of gov
ernment may be safely left in their
Sixth. That there should be rigid
economy in the Stato and National ad
ministrations, and tbe taxes should be
reduced in both as rapidly as consistent
with good management, the maintenance
of the public credit, and certain extin
guishment of the State and National
Seventh. That the public lands belong
to the people and should be sacredly re
served for homes for actual settlers, and
we pronounce against all further grants
of these lauds to corporations.
E'glith Tbat adequate provision should
be made by law for the protection of per
sons engaged in mining and other haz
ardous forms of labor.
Ninth. Tbat retrenchment is required
to lighten the burden of taxation, and to
continue the reduction of tbe public
debt, an increase of salaries is unwise,
and we condemn, without reserve, voting
for or receiving increased pay for servi
ces already rendered, whether in State or
Natfon, aud demand that the provisions
of tbe late act of Congress, by which
tbe salaries were increased should prom
ptly and unconditionally be repealed.
. Tenth. Tbat we bearlly denounce cor
ruption wherever found, and are sincere
ly desirous for honest economy and po
litical purity iu all official administrations.
To secure this is the duty of every citi
zen, and to this end every good man
Bhould feel bound, not only to participate
in politics but to labor actively to see
tbat none but good men secure party ap
pointments or nominations.
. Eleventh. That tbe practice of loading
tbe appropriation bill, essental to the
support of tbe Government, with objec
tionable legislation id the shape of amend
ments towards the close of the session,
is a prolific source of abuse and a fraud
upon the people and its reform is urgent
ly demanded ; that as the country and
home industry bave both uniformly pros
pered under a tariff so arranged as to
afford both revenue and protection, the
present tariff should be left undisturbed,
and as all tariffs are levied primarily for
revenue, it would be a poor government
indeed which could not afford to arrange
its details so as to encourage the growth
of home manufactures and tbe creation
of a remunerative home market for all
the products of our soil.
Thirteenth. That order and security in
the States lately in rebellion must come
through the stern enforcement of laws
enacted to protect lifo, liberty, and the
freedom of thought, and cannot be secur
ed by rendering these just and necessary
laws inoperative through Executive ele-'
raency to unrepentant assassins now un
dergoing punishment in pursuance of the
Fourteenth: That at during the time
the Republican party has been in power
it has had to confront graver difficulties
and more new and perplexing questions
of government than ever were presented
to any other party to solve, and has solv
ed them so judiciously and wisely that
the country endorses its decisions and
accepts the work, it is the only organiza
tion competent to so meet the grave is
su ts that are now, constantly arising as
to seenre the just rights of the people.
Fifteenth. Tbat we sympathize whh
every movement to secure for agriculture
and labor their due influence, interests,
and rights, and the Republican party
will be their ally in every just effort to
attain their ends.
Sanguinary Contest Between tha Siouz
and Pawnee Indian Tribes.
A special telegram to tbe Inter Ocean
from Kearny J unction, Nebraska, Au
gust 10, says; Tbe following particulars
of the fight between the Pawnee and
Sioux tribes of Indians are gleaned from
the officers who bave returned from the
expedition to force tbe Sioux bick to
The battle occurred about twelve miles
above Frenchman's Fork, in the Repub
lican Valley. Tbe Pawnees had pre
pared themselves for a grand buffalo
huut, and were preparing to make an ad
vance, when they discovered what they
supposed to be buffaloes, but which pro
ved to be the ponies of the Sioux,
which had been stripped and distributed
about on the hills as a decoy to lead the
Pawnees to believe them to be buffaloes,
The Sioux had also driven a few buf
faloes toward their camp.
The Pawnees started for the buffa
loes and decoys, when the Sioux attack
ed their camp, where there were but t
few warriors aud the squaws. They suc
ceeded in killing about fifty or sixty
squaws before the Pawnees became
aware of their trick, when they returned
at once and gave battle with all the fren
zy imaginable, caused by the loss of their
squaws and property. But being at a
great disatvantage in numbers as well as
arms, they were soon compiled to retreat
They Add aud crossed the river, where
the Sioux gave up tbe chase. The
Sioux had about 800 of COO waniors
and the Pawnees only about 250. Tbe
Sioux captured everything tbe Pawnees
had. including the robes and meat of
about 500 buffaloes. They also killed
about 100 warriors and 12o ponies. Tbe
Sioux lost about thirty warrors. The
Sioux engaged are what ia known as the
Whistler baud, under a chief named
Snowflake, the successor of old Whistler
A young man from Baltimore, named
Piatt, who was out on the hunt with the
Pawnees, was captured, and afterward
released. The soldiers from Fort Mc
Pberson arrived soon after the fight and
drove tbe sioux back to their reserva
tion. The surving Pawnees bave ar
rived at Elm creek station in a pitiable
Horrible Indian Outrages.
St. Louis, Aug. 11. Rev. Norman
Badger, army chaplain at Fort Cancba,
western Texas, arrived here yesterday,
en route from Washington. He states
that a scouting party returned to Fort
Conch, on last Saturday a week, after
forty days' absence, bringing in a num
ber of stolen ponies, captured from the
Indians, off their reservation, and the
fresh scalp of a white girl, thirteen years
old, who was with a woman killed and
scalped ou a staked plain, two weeks be
fore Mr. Badger says it is now known
tbat Gen. M'Keuzie, during his great ex
pedition against tbe Comanches last fall,
killed upwards of one hundred of them,
though it was reported at the time that
he killed but tweuty-three. About three
weeks ago a band of Indians appeared
near old camp Colorado,' and shot and
stabbed a Mrs Williams, also shot Mrs
Williams' little girl, mashed her bead
against the door post and threw ber body
into tbe fire. Then entering the 'house
they shot a girl eight years of age, and
carried her away with them. Mrs. Wil
liams, notwithstanding ber two wounds,
crawled into the house, pulled her little
child out of the fire, rolled her in a wet
blanket and laid her in bed. Her hus
band soon after returning, she related to
him the circumstances of the attack upon
the bouse and then died, but the infant
whose head had been so badly braised
was still alive when last heard from, and
would probably recover. A hand of from
fifty to sixty Indians were roaming abont
the country south of Fort McKavett, and
in the absence of cavalry at the Fort the
couriers have been sent in all directions
to wam tbe settlers. Much alarm exist
ed, and citizens were arming to defend
A gentleman witb a suspicious looking
red spot on his face entered a Philadel
phia street car the other day. He was
asked if he had tbe small-pox, and an
swered ''Yes," whereupon one passenger
retired and the rest moved np. to tbe other
end of the ear. " How loDg since you
recovered 7" asked one of the more ca
rious. "Well, as nearly as I can recol
lect about thirty-five years ago," re
plied the victim of the disease.
Simplicity is one of the striking char
acteristics of real genius.
Not a long day, but a good heart,
hastens work. .
A Chat About Sleep.
A very thin young lady, of about thir
ty years, with a promising beau, cams
to consult me about her "skin and bones'
;I had frequently met her when she
seemed even more emaciated, but now
she "would give tbe world to be plump"
Sitting down in front of me, she began
"Don't you think, doctor, that I look
very old for twenty?"
1 admitted that she looked rather old
"Can anything be done for me 1 What
can I lake for it I I should be willing to
take a hundred bottles of tbe worst stuff
in the world, if I only conld grt eonw
fat on these bones. A friend of mine
(ber bean) was saying yesterday that be
would give a fortune to see mc round and
'Would you be willing to go to the
Cliff spring in Arkansas T '
"I would start to-morrow."
"But the waters are very bad to
drink," I said.
"I don't care how bad they are, I
know I can driuk them."
"I asked you whether you are willing
to go to the Arkansas springs to test the
strength of your purpose, It is not ne
cessary to leave your home. Nine thin
people in ten can become . reasonably
plump without such a sacrifice."
"Why, doctor, I am delighted to hear
it, but I suppose it is a lot of some awful
"Yes, it is a pretty bitter dose, and
has to be taken every night."
"I don't care, I won Id take it if was
ten times as bad. What is it f What is
the name of it 1"
"The technical name of the stuff is
'Bedibus Nine o'clockibus.' "
"Why, doctor, what an awful name !
I am sure I shall never be able to speak
it. Is there no common English word
for it f
"Oh yes The English of it is, "You
mast be in bed every night at nine
o'clock. We doctors generally use Latin.
'Bedibus Nine o'clockibus' is the Latin
for 'You must be in bed every night by
nine o'clock.' " -
' Ob, that is dreadful. I thought it
was something I could lake."
"It is. You must take your bed every
night before tbe clock strikes nine.,'
"No, I thought that yon would give
me something in a bottle to take."
"Of course I know very well what
you thought. That's the way with all
of yoa. One person eats enormously of
rich food till his stomach and liver refuse
to badge ; then he eries ont, 'Oh, doctor,
what can I take ; I mast take some
thing.' Another fills his system with
tobacco until his nerves are ruined, and
then, trembling and full of horrors, he
exclaims, 'Oh, doctor, what shall I take f
I write a prescription for him Quitibut
Chatcibus et Smokibut. I will suppose
my patient is not a classical scholar, so
I translated it into English. He cries
out at once, 'Oh, doctor, I thought you
would give me something to take.' An
other sits pp till thirteen and fourteen
o'clock, leads a life of theatres and other
dissipations, becomes pale, dyspeptic and
wretched, and then flies to the doctor,
and crie?, 'Oh, doctor, what shall I take ?
What shall I take?' Now, madam, you
are distressed because your lover has
been looking at your 'skiu and bones.' "
"But, doctor, yon are entirely "
"Oh, well, we'll say nothing about
bim, then. But, tell me, what time do
you go to bed ?"
"Generally about twelve o'clock."
"Yes, I thought so. Now, if you
will go to bed every night for six months
at nine o'clock without making any other
change in your habits, you will gain ten
pounds in weight and look five years
younger. Your skin will become fresh,
aud your spirits improve wonderfully."
"I'll do it. But when I have com
pany and during the opera I can't do it
"It is regularity that does the business.
To sit np till twelve o'clock three nights
of the week, and then get to bed at nine
o'clock four nights, one might think
would do very well, and that at any rate
it would be ' so far so good.' I don't
think this every other night early, and
every other night late, Is much better
than every night late.. It is regularity
tbat is vital in the case. Even sitting
up one night a week deranges the ner
vous system for the whole week. I bave
sometimes thought that these people who
sit np to eleven or twelve o'clock every
night get on quite as well as those who
turn in early six nights, and then sit np
once a week till midnight. Regularity
in sleep is every whit as important as
regularity in food."
At length my patient exclaimed, "Doc
tor, I will go to bed every night for six
months before nine o'clock, if it kills me,
or rather if it breaks the hearts of al
She did it. Twenty-one pounds was
the gain in. five months.- Her spirits

A Happy EentucMan.
At the gala regatta of the South Ger
man Boating Association, at Manheim.
in Baden, on the 13th of June, there
took place an event which shed consider
able luetre on American gallantry, and .
which ended in almost romantie manner.
On the above mentioned day the banks
of the Rhine were lined with' spectators,
among which the South German aristoc
racy were fully represented. Just as the
crews of four boating societies were
speeding past the last pillar of tbe new
bridge, a thrilling spectacle attracted al?
eyes. A handsome young lady, most' er
egautly dressed, who bad been leaning
over tbe low railing of tbe bridge,- sud
denly lost her balance aud fell into the'
water, which was at' least seventy fiver
feet underneath. Two or three heart
rending shrieks burst from the lips of
those standing near, and then the thous
ands of spectators, losing all interest in
the race, looked with breathless suspense"
for the result of this terrible accident.'
The poor young lady struck the water'
heavily, and disappeared at once. The
Rhine at that place is deep and rapid,
and when tbe aged father of the unfor
tunate lady, in a voice of agonizing grief
offered a princely reward to whosoever
would save Jhis daughter, there was no
All at once a tall young man, in the
costume of a German student and wear
ing the gold-embroidered cap of the Van-'
dal Society of Heidelberg, rushed to the
left bank of tbe river and plunged bold
ly into the waters a leap of thirty feet.
There was a loud ehont of applause, and
then again a pause of breathless silence.
All eyes were riveted on the gallant
swimmer as he struggled against tbe rap
id current at tbe very spot where the
lady disappeared. He dived down.
What a minute of eupence ! But all
at once a heavy burden fell from all those
oppressed hearts. The swimmer emerg
ed from the depth, and on his arm held
the senseless body of tbe young lady.
Another shout of applause rang tbe wel
kin. Now two boats rowed rapidly t on
ward the pair, and they did not come
any too soon, for the young swimmer
was becoming visibly faint, and when he
with his fair burden, was drawn into una
of the boats, he sank down with otter
exhaustion. When tbe boat reached the
left bank the young hero was at once the
object of a fervent ovation, while the
young woman's father took the latter in
his arms, aud carried her, still in an un
conscious state, into a carriage.
The young hero was a Kentuckian,
named Clarence Goodwin, a law student
at the University of Heidelberg The"
oldest aud most experienced fisherman on
the Rhine pronounced his exploit a truly
heioic deed, and already on the following
morning the Graud Duke of Badtm con
ferred on young Goodwin, who is only
nineteen years old the large golden medV
al for deeds of courage and devotion
But still a greater reward awaited him.
The young lady, whose life be had sav
ed, aud who, notw ithstanding the terri
ble shock she had suffered, had soon re
vived, was- the only daughter of th
Count of Reigera, one cf the wealthiest
South German noblemen. Her father
went himself to the savior of bis daugh
ter, aud after thanking bim in the most
touching manner, brought him to the
young jCountess. The latter thanked
young Goodwin w'rth tears in her eyes,
and said that ber life long gratituile be
longed to ln:n. During the next few
days the two were seen frequently to
gether on the public promenade, and
everybody iu Maubeini believe tbat
they are engaged to be married.
Bringing Down the Average.
I saw a touching picture yesterday.
It was so touching I touched it- It was
a man in the woods sitting upon a trunk

chewing gum, and his trunk had more
locks on it than the Erie Canal.

Says I : "How's trade 1"
Says he i "Dull as thunder. There

"Says I : 'The difference between yot
