Wp were ililitiinli' friends, uml niif i;fli'r
muni I told liim that I would like to (jet
nt tlif bottom of the i stniti'i inetit be
tween Mr. I'.laitie ami himself. I told
Mr. C'otikliiiK that it wemed t mo itb
nurd that a man who had been a lawyer
all bis life, uml a public man. fdmuld
have taken ofTeiisoat Mr. ISliiiiin's pptfch
cnllinfr him a turkey gobbler, etc. It
was BometliitiK I could not comprehend.
Mr. Conkliii repliud: 'It is just M nb
curd to mo to take it Unit way ns it is to
you. You know I have practiced law
nil my life. If lawyers permitted tho
animosities of public trials to warp their
sensibilities, we would be in a light with
all the world. The trne cause of the
quarrel between Mr. Blaine and myself
is thnt Mr. Ulaino took an unfair advan
tage of me in the house of representa
tives to reflect upon my persona! integ
rity.' 'In tlio discussion growing out of the
discontinuing of tho office of provost
marshal general Mr. Ulaino rose to a
question of personal privilege. Mr.
Colliding told mo that be did not pay
inut li attention to Mr. lllaine's speech
until lie heard his name mentioned.
Then, after listening, he found Ulaino
was making a. personal assault, foreign
to the matter of personal privilege and
alien to the subject under discussion.
Coukling said he listened, and the more
lie listened the more he was amazed, and
then he became angry. Coukling said
that he so lost control of himself under
the impulse of the moment that he went
to his friend, Thud Stevens, and said:
' "Mr. Ktovens. you have heard what
Mr. Ulaino him just said. What shall 1
do? The question of ergonal privilego
Mr. lilaino used was a personal attack
npon my integrity. He has character
ized mo as a man who has accepted em
ployment from the government while 1
was a member of congress, and while in
that employment had received fees paid
to mo by Secretary Stanton, and that the
fees embraced pay for services which
had been illegally rendered by me to the
government of the United States in do
ing soino work in the western purtof tho
state. This work included the investi
gation of certain bounty frauds which
had taken place in Khuirn, mid tho sec
retary cumo to mo and employed me to
get at tho root of the trouble, I devoted
a great deal of time til tho business, and
tho upshot was that tho government re
covered, through my efforts, many thou
sands of dollars. Ujion my return to
Washington Secretary Stanton sent for
me and offered $10,000 iu payment for
my services, which I refused to accept.
1 said to him ut that time that if 1 was
to receive anything I preferred to ar-'
range tho price myself, and ut all events
1 would not accept such a sum.
" "l'ending tho discussion between Sec
retary Stanton and myself I went to
Utica and talked over the matter with
Oovernor Seymour and Judge Denio,
chief judgn of the court of npiieals, both
Democrats. I told thorn that I did not
want to take a step which could be used
Bguwst me in any way. I did not want
to make a show of purity that would be
ridiculous, and I did not care about ac
cepting a foe that might be questioned.
On njy return to Washington the check
of Secretary Stauton was reduced to
3,600. Even then I was timid about ac
cepting it, but Stanton said: "By God!
1 know what services are worth. I have
been a lawyer all my life, and this money
yon have got to take." I did take the
money. 1 felt that I had earned it, and
when Mr. Blaine referred to this in the
bouse I felt that he had taken a mean ad
Vantage, and 1 determined never to speak
to him again.'
"Mr. Conkling told me," continued Mr.
Gebhard, "that Mr. Stevens said to him,
Til attend to this for yon, Mr. Conkling,
and will call for a committee of Inquiry."
"A committee was appointed for the
purpose of investigating and reporting,
and when became evident that the re
port of tl committee would entirely
exonerate . .'. Conkling from the alleged
irregularit ee, then it was that he recog
nized the fine hand of Mr. Blaine or bis
friends in the successful attempt to frus
trate the purposes for which the com
mittee waa appointed.
"Mr. Conkling told me that he never
poko to Mr. Ulaino from thnt lime: thnt
ill the cbnrges thnt Ulnino had brought
gainst him were groundless. 'That i
Hit eanso f,r my feeling against Mr.
Ulaiiio.' said Mr. Conkling. 'and 1 shall
never speak to the man ngnin or recog
nizo him till he, in ns public a placo in
tho house of representatives, wake tin
Hpulogy for the assault ho made upon
Uio nt that, time.'
Several tittempls were mail" torecon
ile Mr. Colliding and Mr. Blaine, but
Mr. Conkling nlwnys said: "When Mr.
Ulaino gets tip in congress and taken
back this charge, then I will bo prepared
lo meet him, and until ho docs it thero I
will never speak to him again.' Subse
quently, during the Blaine campnign of
1HHI, Conkling told mo: ! hnve received
n invitation to a dinner at which Mr.
Blaine is to be present. I wonder what
the getters up of this dinner tnke me for.
I nm a Hepublicnn, and I bel eve in tho
success of my pnrty, but there is one
tning I will never do, I will never meet
Mr. Blame until he makes an apology ns
public ns his charges.' "New York Sun.

It was in awe of its master, however, mid
cowetl down every time he cracked his
whip, lie made it dosevernl tricks with
a retriever dog, which did not seem to
like the task very well
"Come and kiss Miss fussy," said tho
man. ami the dog went np to it, laid a
paw upon its neck and licked its face.
The uiaster then put a piece of meat
on her nose and told the dog to fetch it
"He doesn't care for this part," was
his comment. 'She has hud him by the

Iron paws? One blow would lay yon

Miss Pussy had tried to gnaw his boot
and needed to be lushed off.
"Do you ever take her out'r'

Tho sheep farmer, it seems, finds thnt
bo can deliver his sheep, with a fair
profit, for 2 pence u pound at the nearest
port or freezing point. The killing und
freezing process is undertaken chiefly by
companies, which have established freez
ing stations ut various convenient points
along the coast, und which ship the car
casses, consigned to agents in Loudon or
elsewhere. One of the sights of the day
at the Alliert docks is the arrival of one
of tho New Zealand Shipping company's
fine steamers, perhaps tho Tonguriro or
the Rimutaka, or some other of the fleet
with the sonorous Maori mimes, and to
see the subsequent discharge of some
27,000 carcasses, out h neatly wrapped in
its winding sheet of white calico.
The whole yeHr's exportation now fig
ures to about 2,000,000 frozen carcasses
and is rapidly increasing. Yet with all
this depletion the number of sheep in the
colony is rapidly increasing. Tho flocks
hnve largely increased. In number, and
the export of wool has risen from about
04,000.000 pounds in 1HH3 to ioy.000.000
in 1801. All tho Year Round.
Stories of nnexiH'cted fortunes aro as
common as blackberries. Somebody is
always making or finding or inheriting
a heap of money which seems to himself
almost to hiivo come from the clouds.
Worthless shares become valuable, as
