singular nature_of_tlie.cleum, arid the
strange story which it...disclosed. -The
plaintiff -who was captain of a ship
which traded principally with the,Wl
Ihdies, had .twarried quite early,- with
every prospect of happiness. ; His wife
was said to have been extremely beauti
ful, less loveable; in character.
After living-with her in-the most un
interrupted parmony for five years, du
ring_ which time two daughters were
added to the family,-he suddenly re
solved to resuin his occupation, , which
lie livid tellnquiafied on his marriage,
and when his yOUngestehild Was 'but
three-weeks - old,-he sailed for they West
Indies.- ' His wife,-;who. was devotedly
attached to him, sorrowed deeply in his
absence, and found her only comfort in

of bit retern. --Bet Month-after -mouth
passed aWay, and lit.'ectbic nut, nor did
aut. letters, those_ insufficient but ever
welcome substitutes, arrive to cheer her
bitter solitute. Months lengthened in
to years, Yet no tidings were received
from-the absenthusband, and after ho
ping against hope; the unhappy wife
was compelled to believe that he had
found a grave beneath the weltering
Her sorrow was deep and heartfelt, but
the evils of poverty were now added to
her, affiidtions, and the 'Widow found
lierself.obliged to resort tosomeempley7
meritin. order to support her- children.
Her needle was the only resource, and
for ten years she labored early and late
for the miserable pittance which is ever
so, grudgingly bestowed on an humble
Oarnstress. -

Burr was the_cionsel for the dem:Audi
and we anticipated Agin him a splendid
display of oratory.
Contrary to our expectations, howev
er, Burr made no attempt to confute his
opponent's eloquent oratory. He mere
ly opened a book of statutes, and poin
ting,-with his thin fingers, to one of the
pages, desired the referees to read it,
while he retired a moment, forthe prin
cipal witness.
We had . scarcely finished reading the
section which fully decided the matter
in our minds, when Burr re-entered
with a tall and elegant female underhis
arm.' - She was attired in a simple white
dress with a wreath of ivy leaves en
circling her large straw bonnet, and a
lace veil completely concealing her
countenance. Burr whispered a few
-words, apparently encouraging her to
advance, and then gracefully raised her
veil, discovering to us a face of proud,
surpassing beauty. I recollect as well
as if it happened yesterday, how simul
taneous the murmuiofadmirationburst
from the Ups of all present. Turning
to the- plaintiff, Mr. Burr asked iu a
cold, quiet tone:
_ "o you know this lady 2"

"Will you swearto that?" -
"I will, to the best of my knowledge
and belief she is my daughter." _
'"Can you swear to the identity?"

'!When did you last.see her ?"
• "At her own house,, about a fortnight
"When did you see her previous to
that meeting?"
' The plaintiff hesitated—a long pause
ensued—the question wasrepeated, and
the answer at length was—
When she was just a child.
"When she wasjustthreeweeks old,"
ridded Burr. "Gentlemen," continued
he, turning to us, "I have brought this
lady. here as an important witness, and
such I think she is. The plaintiff'S

finally the overwhelming agony which
came upon her when her last hope was
extinguished, and she was-compelled to

sweetness was a strange contrast with
the scornful accent - which characterized
his words, he besought her to relate brief

kroud flush ,passed over her beautiful

"My first recollections are of a small,

but at length she ceased to mention
him, though I observed she used to

then thought she wept because we were
poor, Tor it sometimes happened that
our support was only a bit of dry bread;
and she was accustomed to . see by the

Scene in Palestine.
I was traveling over Anti-Lebanon.
It was a bright summer day and near
noon. Weary and way-worn, I rode
down from a bare mountain ridge into
the wild and beautiful valleyof Hebron,
and dismounted beside a little fountain,
under the "shadow of a great rock."
A group of some fifteen or twenty shep
herds were there, too, resting during the
heat of the day, and theirflocks, amount
ing to several thousand sheep and goats,
filled nearly the whole of the valley.—
At first I was greatly annoyed by the
too near approach of both men and ani
mals ; but when the time came to
lead the flocks away to pasture again, I
watched their motions with intense in
The shepherds arose, went into the
middle of the dense mass of animals,
and then separating, walked away slow
ly in different directions. As they went,
each kept uttering apecnliar cry or call.
The sheep heard, and they, too, began
to separate one from the other. I ob
served the whole mass was agitated as
if the sheep and goats had been driven
thither by some unseen power. Grad
ually they form a series of dense, mo
ving columns, following in the footsteps
of the shepherds, and drawn after them
by their voices. I also observed that
while each shepherd wound his way
through the united flocks, some of the
animals fled at his approach, frightened
at his voice, and others hastened toward
him, "for they knew his voice." In a
short time they were led off, and not fountain was completely deserted; not
a sheep or goat ventured to lag behind.
Then the calls of the shepherds were
heard echoing from rock and cliff, now
dying away in the distance ; while the
flocks were seen, obedient to - the calls,
following in long, distinct streams the
guides whom they alone knew and
trust. As I sat there gazing with min
gled wonder and pleasure on that
strange and instructive scene, I noticed
another beautiful scripture illustration.
One shepherd led his flock, by a zigzag
path, up the almost perpendicular bank
of the glen. Behind it two young lambs
trotted along at the feetof their mother.
fl rst they frisked and jumped lightly
from stone to stone, but soon they be
gan to fall-behind. -The poor little
things cried piteously when the path
became steeper and the rocks higher,
and the flocks more and more distant:
The mother cried, too, running back
and forth—now lingering behind, now
hastening on before, as if to wile them
It was in vain. The ascent was too
much for their limbs. They stopped
trembling on the shelving cliff, and
cried; the mother stopped and cried by
their side. I thought they certainly
would be lost ; and I saw the great ea
gles that soared in circles round the
cliffs far overhead, sweeping lower and
lower as if about to pounce upon their
prey. But no! The plaintive cries of
distress had already reached the ears of
the good shepherd. Mounting a rock,
he looked down and saw the helpless
little ones. A minute and he was stand
ing by them; then, taking them up in
his arms, he put them one on each side,
in his bosom, in the ample folds - of his
coat, which was bound round the waste
with a girdle.
- The lambs made no attempt to ruu
Away from him. They seemed to know
what he was going to do when he lifted
them in his arms; and the little crea
tures lay there with their beads out as
contentedly as an infant in its mother's
bosom, while the shepherd scaled the
dizzy bights again, and took his place
at the head of the flock. It may be ea
sily imagined with what deep Interest I
have ever since read the beautiful words
of Isaiah—" He shall feed His flocks like
a shepherd. He shall gather the lambs
with His arm and carry them In His
Bill Simpson's Legal Experience
Many years ago the Legislature of
Tennessee passed an act to organize the
county of McNairy. At that time the
county embraced in thelimits of Snake,
was occupied by a sturdy set of back
woodsmen, totally unacquainted with
courts, jails, etc.' The country assem
bled at the appointed site for the pur
pose of cutting logs, making boards, etc.
The only theme of daily conversation,
when the men were assembled, was the
court. None of them had seen a court
in session, as yet developed. Each one
would give what his idea of acourt was.
None, however, were entirely satis
factory until Bill Simpson was called on
to give his ideas. ' He said he knew all
about a court—that he had a lawsuit in
North Carolina. One of his neighbors'
hogs kept coming when he fed his hogs
until it got fat. One morning he got so
all-fired mad that ha shot the hog._ He
thought it would not do to throw it
away, so he cleaned and salted it. Short
ly atter, his neighbor and a man came
to his house, examined thesmoke-house,
and took him to town and put him in a
little office. About three months after
that, this man came and took -him td a
large room. A large man! .sat upon a
high bench—a man was sitting_ at a
,desk—about a dozen fine dressed men
'set in a place around. The man put me
in'h pen-just behind them.
Ha then called in, twelye, Men ; they
took seats in a box in front of the line

ting gave the twelve -men a book and
said something about Bill Simpson and
the State. Then one of the 'fine men

the hog, and' be-and another of the line
:dressed men had the biggest quarrel
you ever heard. I thought they would
fight every minute, but they didn't. It
was Bill Simpson and the hog, and the
hog and Bill Simpson, and, sometimes
Mr.. Simpson, but, devilish seldom.
After they had quit quatrelling,"the big
- man talked awhile to the twelve men,
'and they went out and staid a shorttime
and carne back and: said something .to
.the man at the desk. The Man on the
bench said something* to the man that
put me in the office, and he took me out
and tied me to a .persimmon tree and
commenced fighting me with a cowhide;
I and it made me - so all-fired mad that'l
shook all thepersimmons off tile tree.
Not many years ago, in answer to the'l
call of a country parish in Virginia,
there appeared ayoung clergyman whose
sole earthly possessions consisted of two
black trunks and a horse, whoseill-kept
condition-gained for him the sobriquet
of Buzzard. The person,- however, be

by securing the affections of a lovely
young widow, whose great wealth v. as
more than an offset for his poverty.
The time for the wedding came. The
ceremony had proceeded to the point
where the groom, in_presence of the
company, most solemnly declares to the

A Thrilling Adventure
In the great and bloody war it would
have been hard to tind a more brave and
daring soldier than the young and fear
less Harry Kilos:
When the President first called for
troops to defend the Union he enlisted
in a Michigan regiment, and the year
1882 found him serving his country in
the capacity of a spy. Many were the
bold and daring acts which he perform
ed, until his name became a terror to
those rebels in that part of the field in
which he served. But one bright day,
when he was making a raid into the
country far south of the Unimi lines.
he accidentally found himself in the
hands of a small band of ruthless guer
rillas. .
The guerrillas had camped by a small
stream in a little, old, but strongly built
hut; and our spy was confined in a
small, dark, tight closet, and allowed
the freedom of his limbs. Harry Kilos,
reflecting upon his situation, he knew
that a reward had been offered for him
self by a guerrilla colon'el, and that was
the only reason that he had not been
instantly butchered. He knew, too,
that a worse fate was in store for him
than simple shooting through the head,
and he resolved to make every effort for
escape that lay in his power.
Examination proved to him that the
walls of his cell were strong and tight,
so that no egress could be made through
them. Then he examined the floor; it
was of solid plank, fastened to the sleep
ers by spikes and wooden pins.
"Ha!" suddenly exclaimed Harry,
in a low -tone, as he came unon one
short plank which was loose. In a mo
ment he had raised it, and with a silent
congratulation, he proceeded to make
his exit down through the floor.,
The floor of the house was about a
foot from the ground, and as the young
adventurer replaced the plank, ho felt
the spirits rise within _him. The house
was full of guerrillas, andhe could hear
them carousing over his head.
A few were keeping guard outside, but
he felt sure he could slip by these as
soon as it could become dark. Dark
ness was not far otc, and the only dan
ger he apprehended was that the guer
rillas would look into his vacant
Satisfaction, however, settled upon his
mind as he saw the shadows of night
gathering and thickening, and as the
carousing over head began to lose its
loud and boisterous tone, he crept slow
ly out from under the house, and pushed
through the thick bushes until he
reached the edge of the river, over
which he would be obliged to swim.
At that moment a loud cry, uttered
by the guerrilas, reached his ear, and he
knew that his absence had been discov
ered. He heard the tramp of many- feet,
and yells, curses and oaths reached Ins
They were on Ida track, and delay wag
Acting upon this thought he plunged
silently into the river, and swam for the
opposite shore with firm and rapid

in a small boat, while the report of a
revolver broke upon the air, and the
splash of a ball spattered the water into
his face. Knowing that he could not
reach the opposite shore ahead of the
pursuers, he slackened his pace, and In
a moment the boat was not ten feet off.
"Surrender, you d-d Yank !''
yelled the fellow who stood In the bow
of the little boat.
Our spy dove deep and came up Deal
ly under the stern of the craft, and ex
erting all his strength, directed with
such skill as was only his, he capsized
the boat, and then, with a loud laugh,
be struck out for the shore.
He was a strong swimmer, but oue of
the largest of the guerrillas gained on

dreaded the embrace with the muscular
ruffian, but it was ineviMble—the huge
fellow was already upon him, and it
was fight or die.
The two men grappled and the watQ ,
foamed around them.
Harry had never met his match in
physical strength, and the burly auvr
rilla was as a child in his bands.
He soon held him firm in a position
which rendered him helpless, and seiz
ing the ruffian's throat, he choked him
till he was insensible, ,'and then let him
sink to the bottom.
It was necessary to do this act in or
der to save his own life; and now that
he had got rid of his worst antagonist
he reached the northern shore; and
waving his hand, he uttered a yell of
triumph, and disappeared in the dark•
ness, leaving his enemy to-curse and
swear with chagrin and malice.

farm, and a quiet game Of cards. He
came to this city on the early train
Wednesday morning to see how hominid
best sell some grain he had on hand, in
tending to return the same night.
On his way up from the depot he en
tered a saloon on Randolph street to
.'et a glass of ale. Seated at a table
there were three men,playing cut-throat
euchre. Politely they asked him to
join them and play a rubber for the beer.
They looked like gentlemen, he was,
fond of game, and he assented.
During the second game his partner
said, " I'd like to bet a couple of dollars
at bluff." Mr. Williams looked at hls
hand and four queens and a king,
so he bet and " called." His part
n..,r—a Mr. Smith—showed his hand
and had only threes and twos, so Mr.
Williams won. Naturally, he felt elated.
He had won $2 of a city fellow.
The next time Mr. Smith dealt, giv
ing Mr. Williams four kings and a
queen. With a little tremor in his;
voice, Mr. Williams said, " I bet $26
on blutf." That was all the money he
had. Mr. Smith . saw" the $25 and
went 525 better. For a few minutes
Williams was perplexed ; lie pondered,
and at last said, •' Will you consider nay
overcoat equal to 525?" Mr. Smith
said •• yes," and Williams then "saw"
the pile with his overcoat, and went his
coat and pants, better. Mr. Smith saw
the;e and went :20 better. Mr.

he couldn't. The thou3ht of returning

He explained thia little di.t.M..ulty to the
new owner of his clothes, who then
suggested that he might have a friend
here who would lend him the money or
a suit of clothes.
No, he knew none here. Could not
