THE OLD WOMAN AND THE
BY W . N . JOHNSTON.
The following amusing anecdote
which has never yet appeared in
print, struck me as contaiiung a
point so keenly satirical that I de
termined to write it down and have
it ' placed on the records.' It was
told me by one who was both an
eye and ear witness, and who, of
course, speaks from the book. The
story will lose much of its hidicrous
ness in my style of writing, and his
of telling it, but here goes :
At a certain cross-roads, in- the
State of Alabama, stood a small
grocery, or " whisky-shop," previ
ous t the rebellion, where " bust
head" and chain-lightning" were
dealt out to the thirsty unwashed
at the small sum of rive cents a
quart. The presiding genius of"
this delectable institution was one
Bill Sikcs, who among various
other pets, had a domesticated crow,
black as the ace of spades. This
crow had learned, among other
things, to repeat quite plainly the
words "dam you ! " which, he of
course, heard frequently used in the
grocery. During the prevalence of
a knock-down and drag-out fight
one day, however, the crow was
frightened from his home and flew
off into the woods, never to return.
About three miles from the gro-"
eery was a settlement meeting
house an old tumble-down, dilapi
dated affair, only used on certain
occasions, when a "circuit-rider"
happened to pass that way. In
this building went the crow, taking
peaceable possession ; and two
days thereafter the church was
thrown open for preaching, and a
large crowd assembled, among
whom was a very old lady, who
was compelled to use crutches in
walking, who took her seat in the
"front pew," and was soon deeply
absorbed in the eloquence of the
preacher. The reverend gentleman
had scarce! v got underfill! headwav,
and commenced thundering his an
athemas at all grades of sinners,
when a hoarse, croaking voice from
above uttered the ominous words:
" Damn you !"
" The preacher and congregation
looked aghast at such profanity,
each peered in his neighbor's face
in vain to detect some sign of guilt.
Quiet was at length restored, but
ere ten minutes had elapsed the
ominous " damn you!" again elec
tified the audience, and just as the
preacher cast his eves upwards to
search for the delinquent, the crow
flew down from his perch, and,
lighting on the Bible, calmly sur
veved the terrified crowd, as he
gave another doleful croak :
"Damn you !"
The effect was electrical. Giv
ing one startled and terrified glance
at the intruder, the preacher sprang
through a window, carrying sash,
glass and all with him, and set off
at a break-neck pace through the
woods, closely followed by his hor
ror stricken congregation, who had
piled out of the building pell-mell
after him. In the general scramble,
(.he old lady with the crutches had
been knocked down in the church,
where she lay, unable to rise, and
on observing her, the crow (who
was after something to eat) flew
down beside her, and cocking up
his eye at her very knowingly,
again croaked :
" Damn you !"
TIk; old lady eyed him savagely
for a few moments, and then burst
forth, in a tone of reckless defiance :
" Yes and damn you, too P I
had nothing to do with getting up
of this Methodist meeting and you
know it, too !"'
The poor old soul had mistaken
the crow for the Devil, and conclu
ded to propitiate, if possible, the
wrath of his Satanic majestj by
denying all complicity in the affair.
The world is full of just such peo

LETTER FROM MR. CLYMER.
The following letter was address
ed by Mr. Clymer to a meeting held
in Sharon, Mercer eounty, Pa. :
Gentlemen : I have just receiv
ed your letter of the 19th instant,
asking the question " whether I am '
or am not in favor of making a gen
eral railroad law by the Legislature
of this Commonwealth somewhat
similar to that existing in the neigh
boring State of Ohio V"
If after the repeated and persist
ent efforts made bv me during a
long service in the Senate, to se
cure the passage of a general rail
road law, my position on that
question is not understood, I fear
that nothing I may now say will
more fully demonstrate it.
I have been, am now, and will
continue to be in favor of a general
free, railroad system for this State,
similar to that of the State of Ohio
and New York ; believing that cap
ital should ever be permitted, under
proper restraints for the protection
of private property and the rights
of individuals, to develop any and
every section of this State v.ithout
let or hinderance.
Until the people of this Common
wealth establish this system, many
of the richest and fairest portions
thereof, will, for half a century to
corne, be deprived of those means
of development and inter-communication
to which at all times they
are entitled, and without which
their stores of iron, of coal, of lum
ber, and of oil, will be useless and
unprofitable, not alone to their
owners, but as well also to the
whole people who are unquestiona
bly most deeply interested in their
prompt development and produc
tion. Very respectfully and truly yours,
School Statements. The Com-
! men School Law of the State, make
it the duty of Directors " to publish
an annual statement of the amount
of moneys received and expended,
and the amount due from collectors,
and setting forth all the financial
operations oi' the district, 'in not less
than ten written or printed hand
bills, to be put up in the most pub
lic places in the district."
Zrir A gentleman at the opera, the
other night, in sounding the praises
of a new opera-glass which he had
just purchased, said, " Why, bless
vour soul, it brings the ladies on the
opposite side of the house so near
that I can smell the musk on their
poeket-handkerciefs, and hear tho
beating of their dear little hearts."
An editor declaims against- tho
immodesty of tilting hoops, inas
much a they expose too 'much of
the extremities of the ladies who
wear them, and then exclaims :
"We grieve for the good old days of
Adam and Eve." We don't think
that the wardrobe which Adam and
Eve started life with would be much
of an improvement on tilting hoops.
As the building at the one end of
the Pennsylvania Avenue is called
' ' the White House," would it not bo
wise, as a matter of distinction, to
call the building in which Congress
meets, at the other end of the Ave
