THE PRETTY WAITER GIRL.
THE F1K8T place wo remember to
linve noticed her was at Don Tros
tie's Franklin ItoUBC,Chombersburg,Pa.,
when General Patterson's column occu
pied that pretty town In the spring 1801,
(She wns merely one of the, helps itbout
tho Iioubo waited on the tables, made
herself generally useful, and during the
long pleasant evening lllrted outrageous
ly with the new-fledged Union olllecrs,
young in years and experience. Hhe
wns evidently got up for the walter-glrl
business, for truth compels us to say
that at the first she looked as little fitted
to her position as possible. Hhe wns a
tall brunette, with a pleasant expression
and a decidedly prepossessing ludy-llko
manner, and her clothes fitted her In a
wny that made her look like a countess
beside the cxhuberant Franklin girls,
profuse alike In form and raiment. Sho
was not at all prudish, and had strings
to her bow ranging all over the gamut,
from a second lieutenant to n colonel ;
but they only appeared to get a certain
distance Into her good gruces, when the
atllitr came to a sudden termination with
tho male parly looking very foolish If
the name of Lizzie Anderson was men
tioned, l'atterson's column moved to
Hagcrstown, and Lizzie was In the dining-room
at Yengllng's 'Washington
House when the first olllcer got there to
din ner. Of courso I was glad to see her,
and remarked :
" Hallo, Lizzie! I thoughtyou were nt
" Oh, no," and she showed her pretty
white teeth pleasantly. " I have, como
down here to work. Your moving away
threw me out of a place, and I had to
"Oh ! ah 1 yes very true. Clet mo
another pleco of chicken, will you?"
and the officer thought no more about it
except to reflect that he was glad sho
was there to wait on him.
At the Washington Houbc Mary Lamb
first Baw Lizzie, and figured her up to
Itoyeo Cludham with the slightly super
cilious remark :
" Very gorgeous stylo of hand-maldcu
they got up here."
"Yes; I saw her yesterday at the
Franklin, In Chambersburg."
"An Itinerant young lady, probably."
Then the column moved to Wlllloms
port, and Mary Lamb told John Eu
singer, of tho Potomac Hotel that If ho
couldn't afford water In his guests'
rooms, he had better turn his house Into
a saw-mill. He said she should have a
pumpful right away, and in five min
utes Lizzie appeared with It.
" You seem to have left Hagcrstown
and Chambersburg," etc., said Mary.
" Army attachment V"
" Oh, no ; I have to work for a living,
and go where It is to bo had."
" Then your military attachment is
entirely financial, and your patriotism
speculative," pursued Mary, with her
mouth full of pins.
" I don't understand you, but I expect'
"Ahl what charming naivete."
"The which, Miss?"
"No, thank you, nothing else," and
Lizzie demurely departed. Then Mary
Lamb turned and looked at the door
which closed after her as though it was
a particular difficult sum in arithmetic
further along in the book than she had
ciphered. A few days more passed. The
battle of the Falling Waters was added
to the history, and Patterson's column
occupied Martinsburg. Iloyce Cludham
secured a couple of rooms at John Mac
cabee's Union House and hunted up
" I've got good quarters for you Mary,
at the Union House. You'll be com
fortable I know, for that pretty waiter-
girl la there who attended to you at Ha-
gerstown and Wllliamsport."
" Well, that young woman must be
remarkably sudden in her movements.
We haven't been here four hours our
selves. How did she get here V Keeps
a private balloon probably."
"Haven't the slightest idea. You'll
have to ask her how she locomotes, if
you want to know."
Mary Lamb had been at the Union
House two or three days, when one
morning she heard Mrs. Maccabce Jaw
ing as only an irate landlady of the war
times could jaw. The new girl had gone
oflf yesterday after supper to see some
other girl, and hadn't come back, and
her help was wanted, and she was bad,
mean, good for nothing, and generally
to be condemned in consequence. She
didn't turn up until the second morning
after, when she came in with her head
tied up, and looking as though she had
not slept for a week. She said she bad
taken sick and stayed with her friend,
whose name she gave, and the landlady
said she would see about such carryings
on ; then told her to go to work, and in
an hour forgot all about it. All these
things Mary Lamb noticed, and her
gum in arithmetic grew more compli
cated. " Koyce," she said, " I'd give seven
dollnrs If you were aright good-looking
young fellow a lady-killer, In fart."
" Why such a supererogatory wish V
Who do you want killed V"
"Nobody; but I'd Just like somebody
to get that girl sweet enough on them to
find nut who she la."
" She's Lizzie Anderson I s'pose. At
least so she gives herself out."
" Sho Is no moro Lizzie Anderson
than she 1b a servant-girl."
" Do you think not V"
" The servant-girl of the period don't
whlstlo airs from 'Fra Dlavolo' and
swear softly to herself In French and
" I'm not much up In the ethics of
servanlgallsm, but I should suppose they
didn't at least not to any alarming ex
tent." " Well, this girl does."
" She shouldn't do It. Wouldn't you
be doing her n kindness to talk to her a
little? Give her a tract about profane
swearing, or any other kind of swearing
In fact, do something for her."
"Yes oh yes; I'll do something for
her witli tho greatest pleasure in life If
she ain't considerably sharper Hum I
take her to be."
From that time forward Miss Lamb
devoted her time and talents to watch
ing Miss Lizzie's movements,. If the
girl went only ten yards from tho house
sho was shadowed, and If she went fur
ther she was watched with more vigil
ance. Palleneo won Its reward. Mary
found that the girl every second evening
paid a visit of two hours' duration to a
house on one of the back streets of Mar
tinsburg, near the old Jail. Inquiry dis
closed nothing unusual about tho house.
The inmates claimed to be strong Union
people, and had made the acquaintance
of Miss Anderson by accident, and she
came there because she knew up one elso
in the place. The alliilr was allowed to
drop, and Miss Lamb, giving out that
she was going homo to Pennsylvania,
left the hotel. That night got up as a
small vagabond boy, sho loafed about
until Miss Anderson entered the house
in question. Then she sut down and
waited, concealed behind the garden
fence of a neighboring house. Sho saw
no more of the girl, but In fifteen min
utes a stout-looking boy, In rough sum
mer clothes and a wlde-rlnimed slouch
hat, came out with a small busket and
walked down street toward the Opuquan
Creek, whistling. Mary Lamb thought
Hint whistling was a little familiar, and
followed It. The boy ahead walked
down to the creek, stopped his whistling
and, ufter looking around, cautiously
got over the fence into tho mcudows,and
walked down the creek's bank. After
about two hundred yards he came to a
picket, gave the countersign, and passed
The other boy did the same thing,
leaving tho guard wondering If all tho
boys in Martinsburg had the counter
sign. With careful dodging and watch
ing Mary followed the objectionable boy
down to the meadows through a narrow
piece of woodland and had the pleasure
to see her enter a small log-house on the
edge of the ensuing clear land. Work
ing noiselessly up to this cabin to find
it closed and dark she listened carefully
but there was not a sound. In about
five minutes tho boy came out, looked
carelessly around, and sauntered ofT to
ward town again, swinging his basket,
evidently empty. This time Miss Lamb
did not follow. She lay still concealed
by the high weeds and poke bushes, oc
casionally wondering why a snake did
not crawl up her trowsers leg. Hour
after hour she waited with becoming pa
tience, and Just as she was beginning to
feel drowsy she heard the quick patter
of a horse's feet. The rider dismounted
about twenty yards from the cabin tied
his horse, and went inside. In a mo
ment he came out again with a small
bundle in his hand, evidently papers,
which he hastily concealed under his
coat, buttoned it up, and cantered away.
Then Mary Lamb shook her stiffened
limbs and wended her way back to Mar
tinsburg, astonishing the sleepy picket
by coming along with the countersign
just when the daylight was beginning to
streak the east.
That day a careful examination the
old cabin was made. It was found sim
ply to be lonely, uninhabited, and noth
ing more. The following afternoon
Mary Lamb concealed herself in the
cabin loft, while Jerome Clauson and
Iloyce Cludham picked themselves out
convenient hiding places among the
rank vegetation outside, and a cavalry
sergeant was carefully Instructed where
to post his ten dismounted men handy
in the woods. When evening came all
were on the watch. There was enough
starlight to render objects visible at short
distances. The boy with a basket ap
peared about half an hour after sun
down. He entered the cabin, and set
ting down his basket, proceeded to pull
up a stone of the dilapidated hearth.
Then Miss Lamb over his head spoke.
" Lizzie Anderson, if you move a nius.
cle I'll blow your head off!" and the boy
"Stand perfectly still," added Mary
" It's all right."
Then Cludham and CIiuikoii cnnio In
and secured her.
'Have you anything to sny V" asked
"Nothing at all." And they took
her out and turned her over to tho ser
geant, who sent a couple of men to head
qurrters with her at once. Then tho
party got Into their positions again and
waited for the man. It was three o'clock
In tho morning when he came. He tied
his horse as before, and entered the cab.
In. He was no sooner Inside than ono
of tho cavalrymen had the horse. As
he was obo.it to sump by the hearth tho
voice overhead remarked :
" If you move a niusclo you uro a
dead man I"
Hut ho didn't heed. Springing through
tho door, he cocked his revolver as he
went, and fired on the first man ho saw,
which was Clawson. Ho made for his
horse, with bullets flying all around
lilm. When ho saw It was gone ho
leaped over tho low fence, to be struck
three times before he touched the ground..
The cavalrymen and Cludham inadoa
rush on him as ho fell. Hut It was use
less ; ho was quiet. They took the body
Into tho cabin, struck a lightand search,
edit, to find nothing at all that would
tell his name or business. Near tho
hearth sat the little basket Lizzie Ander
son hud brought. . It contained late cop
ies of the I'lilladelphla and New York
papers, and lengthy written details of
the latest movements in Patterson's col
umn, vith carefully calculated surmises
of probable movements in the future, In
an envelope by Itself waB tho counter
sign of that night and a rude drawing
of the picket line. Next day in accord
ance with the orders from headquarters
the strangei was burled quietly in the
woods where he fell. ,
Kvery means short of actual torture
was brought to beur tin tho girl, Llzzio
Anderson to Induce her to tell from
whom she had obuilned her Information
and the countersign, but the efforts wero
useless. Her only answer was :
" I come of a Southern family that
never bctriiyb Its friends.rlght or wrong.
I will never tell anything."
And she didn't. She was heldaclose
prisoner until the command reached
Harper's Ferry, where, In the confusion
of l'atterson's leaving and Hanks' tak
ing charge, ono morning Llzzio Ander
son turned up missing, and Mary Lamb
mourned her departure.
" I think it's a downright shame, so
I do. I had all the trouble of catching
that particular sharp young woman, and
then to think they had to let her run
away afterwards in one of my best
Saved By His Daughter.
HPIIE daughter of a rector, residing in
JL a quiet English village, was on the
eve of marriage. Grand preparations
were made for the wedding ; and the
rector's fine old plate and the costly gifts
of the bride, were discussed with prido
and pleasure at tho Hare and Hounds in
the presence of some strangers who had
come down to a prize-fight which had
taken place In tho neighborhood. That
night, Adelaide, who had occupied a sep
arate room from her sister, sat up late
long after all the household had retired
to rest. She had a long interview with
her father and hod been reading a chap
ter to which he had directed her atten
tion, and since, had packed up her jew.
She was, consequently, still dressed
when tho church clock tolled midnight.
As it ceased, she fancied she heard a low
noise like that of a file; she listened, but
could distinguish nothing clearly. It
might have been made by some of the
servants still about, or perhaps it was
only the creaking of the old trees. She
heard nothing but the sighing of the
winter winds for many minutes after
ward. Housebreakers were mere myths
In that place. She was gazing on a
glittering set of diamonds, destined to be
worn at the wedding, when her bed
room door softly opened. She turned,
looked up, and beheld a man with a
block mask holding a pistol in his band,
standing before her.
" You are come," she said in a whis
per, "to rob us. Spare your soul the
awful guilt of murder. My father sleeps
next to my room, and to bestartled from
his sleep would kill .him. Make no
noise, I beg of you."
The fellow was astonished and cowed,
" We won't make no noise," he replied,
suddenly, "if you give up to us every
Adelaide drew back and let him take
her jewels not without a pang, for they
were precious love gifts, remarking at
the same time that two other ruffians
stood at the half-opened door. As he
took the Jewel case and watch from the
table, and demanded her purse, she ask.
ed him if he intended to go into her
father's room. She received a surly
affirmative ; he wasn't going to run all
risk and leave the tin behind. She pro
posed instantly to go herself, saying :
" I will bring you what you wish, and
you may guard me thither, and kill me
if I play you false."
The fellow consulted his comrades,and
after a short parley they agreed to the
proposal ; and with a pistol pointed at
her head, the dauntless girl crossed tho
passage, and entered the old rector's
room. Very gently sue stole across tne
chamber, and removing his purse.watch
keys and desk, she gave them up to the
rubbers who stood In the door. The old
man slept peacefully and calmly, thus
guarded by his child, who softly shut
tho door, and demanded If the robbers
Wpre yet satisfied. '
The leader said they should bo when
they got the plate spread out below, and
they couldn't let her out of sight, and
sho must go with them.
In compliance with this mandate she
followed them down stairs to the dining
room where a splendid wedding break
fast had been laid to save trouble and
hurry on the morrow.
To her surprise, tho fellows eight in
number when assembled seated them
selves and prepared to makon good
meal. They ordered her to get them out
some wlno, and to cut her own wedding
ciiko for them ; and then, seated at the
table, sho was compelled tf) preside at
this extraordinary revel.
They ate, drank, laughed and Joked ;
and Adelaide, quick of ear and eye, hod
time to study, In her quiet way, tho fig
ures and voices of tho whole set.
When the repast was ended, and the
plate transferred to a sack, they prepared
to depart, whispering together, and
glancing at tho young lady. For tho
first time Adelaide's courage gavo way,
and she trembled ; but the leader, ap
proaching her, told her they did not
wish to barm her but she must swear
not to give tho alurm till nine or ten in
the next day when they should be off
all safe. To this she wasobliged to assent
and they all insisted on shaking hands
with her. She noticed, during the part
ing ceremony, that one of the ruffians
had only three fingers on the left hand.
Alone, and lu tho despoiled room,
Adelaide, faint and exhausted, awaited
tho first gleam of daylight; then, as the
robbers did not return, stolo up to her
room, undressed and fell into a disturb
ed slumber. The consternation of the
family next morning may bo Imagined ;
and Adelaide's story was more astonish
ing than tho fact of tho robbery itself.
Police were sent for from London, and
they, guided by Adelaide's lucid descrip
tion of her midnight guests, actually '
succeeded In capturing every one of the
gang, whom the young lady had no diffi
culty in identifying, and swearing to
the " three-fingered Jack," being the
guiding clue to the discovery.
The stolen property was nearly all
recovered, and the old rector always de
clared ho owed his life to the self-posses-
slon of his daughter.
Wit In Court.
Keen and cutting words, or even tri
fling incivilities indulged in at the ex
pense of counsel, hove sometimes met
with swift retribution. Plunket was
once engaged in a case,, when, toward
the close of the afternoon, it became a
question whether the court should ad-
lrmrn fill tho TipTt, dnv. T'lnnlrpt. pt.
pressed his willingness to go on if tha
Jury would "set." "Sit, sit, sit," said
the presiding Judge, "not set, hens set.?'
" I thanlcyou my lord," said Plunket.
The case proceeded, and presently the
Judge had occasion to observe that if that
were the cane, he feared the action would
not " lay." " Lie, my lord, lie," ex
claimed the barrister ; "not "lay," hens
" If you don't stop your coughing,
sir," sold a testy and Irritable judge, " I
will fine you 100." "I'll give your
lordship 200 if you can, stop it for me,"
was the ready reply.
' On one occasion Curran was pleading
before FItzglbbon, tho Irish chancellor,
with whom he was on terms of any.
thing but friendship. The chancellor,
with the distinct purpose, as it would
seem, of insulting the advocate, brought
with him on to the bench, a large New
foundland dog, to which he devoted a
great deal of his attention while Curran
was addressinga very elaborate argument
to him. At a very material point In
the speech the judge turned away, and
seemed to be wholly engrossed with his
dog. Curran ceased to speak. ."Goon,
go on, Mr. Curran," said the chancellor.
" Oh, I beg one thousand pardons, my
lords," said the witty barrister, "I really
was under the impression that your
lordships were in consultation."
Good people despise the man who
leads men astray; the man who, in the
strength of a noble manhood, might
have blest mankind, been the support
and pride of some affectionate family
circle, a living illustration of what
God designed when he made man " in
His own image." Even If a moderate
drinker, he knows that he is wasting
his money and hurting his own home.
He knows that one glass may start a
soul on the wrong track, and make of a
beautiful boy a bleareyed sot. He knows
how he may blacken a soul for all eterni
ty, yet misery loves company, and he
draws his fellow into the same male-storm.
