A Country Woman's Story.
BY JOSIAH ALLEN'S WIFE.
I HAD lienril It was considerable of a
store, but good land 1 It was bigger
tlinn nil the shops In Jonesvllle put to
gether, and 2 or 3 10 acre lots, and a few
nieetin' houses. Hut I wouldn't have
acted fekulrt, if it lind been as big as all
Africa. I walked In as cool as a cow
cumber. We sot down pretty nigh to
the door and looked round a spell. Of
all the sights of folks there was a cumin'
in all the time, and shlnln' counters nil
down ns fur as we could see, and slick
lookln' fellers behind everyone, and lots
of hoys runnln' round, that they cnlled
" Cash." I snys to lletsey.
"What a large family of boys Mr.
Cash's folks have got, and they must
some of 'em be twins, they seem to be
of about a size."
I was Jest thinkin' in a pitying way of
their mother; poor Mrs. Cash, when
Uetsey says to me :
" Joslah Allen's wife, hadn't you bet
ter be purchasing your merchandise?"
Buys she, " I will set here and rest till
you get through, and as iJeah Tuppab
icmarked, study human nature." "She
didn't have no book as I could see to
study out of, but I didn't make no re
marks. Uetsey Is a cuilous critter any
way ; I went up to the first counter
there wns a real slick lookln' fellow there
and I nsked hlni in a cool tone, " If Mr.
Stewart took eggs, and what they was a
lie said "Mr. Stewart don't take
" Well," snys I, " what does he give
now for butter In the pail ?"
.lie said, "Mr. Stewart- don't take
"Well," cays I, in ft dignified way,
" It hain't no matter, lonly asked to see
what they was fetchiti' here. I hnint
got any with me, for I come on a tow
er." I then took a little roll out of my
pocket, and undone 'em. It was a pair
of socks and a pair of striped mittens.
And I Rays 'to him In a cool, calm way :
"How much Is Mr. Stewart a paylu'
for noeks and mittens now. I know they
are kinder out of season now, but there
halnt no danger but what Winter will
come, if you wait long enough."
He said, " We don't take 'ein."
I felt disappointed.forl did want Alex
ander to have 'em, they was knit so
good. I was jest thinkin' this over,
when he spoke up, again, and snys he,
" we don't take barton of no kind." 1
didn't know really what he tneant,but I
answered him in a blind way, that it
was jest ns well ns if they did, as fur ns
1 was concerned, for we hadn't raised
any barter that year, it didn't seem to be
a good year for it," and then I continued
on, " Mebby Mr. Stewnrt would take
theRO soek9 and mittens for his own
use." Snys I, " do you know whether
Alexander Is well oil' for socks and mit
tens or not ?"
The clerk snld " he guessed Mr. Stew
nrt wasn't sufl'erin' for 'em."
"Well," snys I in a dignified way,
"youenn dons you are a mind about
takin' 'em but they are colored in good
indigo blue dye, they hain't pusley color,
nnd they nre knit on honor, jest ns I
" Who Is Joslah ?" snys the clerk.
Snys I, a Bort of blindly. " He is the
husband of Josiuh Allen's wife."
I wouldn't soy right out that I was
Josiuh Allen's wife, because I wanted
them socks and mittens to stand on their
own merits, or not at all. I wasn't goin'
to have 'em go, jest because one of the
first wimmen of the day knit 'em.
Neither was I going to hang on, mid
tease him to take 'em, I never said an
other word about his buyln' 'em (only
mentioned in a careless way, that " the
heels was run.") But he didn't seem to
wan't 'em, and I jest folded 'em up, and
in a cool way put em in my pocket. I
then nsked to look nt his calicos, for I
was pretty near decided in my mind to
get an npron, for I wasn't goin' to have
him think that all my property laid in
that pair of socks and mittens.
He told me where to go to see the cali
cos aud there was another clerk behind
that counter. I didn't like his looks a
bit, he wns real uppish lookln'. But I
wasn't to let hliu mistrust that I wns
put to my stumps a bit. I walked up ns
collected lookln' ns if I owned the wholo
caboodle of 'em, and New York village,
and Jonesvllle, and snys I :
" I want to look at your calicos.';
" What prints will ycu look at ?" says
he mean in' to put on me.'
Says I, " I don't want to look at no
Prince," says I, " I had ruther see a free
born American citizen, than all the for
eign Princes you cnu bring out." Says
I, " Americans make perfect fools of
themselves In my mind, a runnln' after
a parcel of boys, whose only merit is
that they happened to be born before
their brothers nnd bisters wns." Says I,
" if a baby is born in a meetin' house, it
don't make out that ho Is horn a preach
er. A good smart American boy like
Thomas Jefferson, looks ns good to me
as any of your Primes." I suld this In
a noble, lofty tone, but ftfter a minute's
thought I went on :
" Though if you have got a quantity
of Princes here, I had as leave see one of
Victory's boyB as any of 'em. The wld
der Albert Is a good house-keeper, nnd a
first-rate calculator, and a woman that
has got a right. 1 set a good deal of
store by the wldder Albert, I always
thought I should like to get acquainted
with her, and visit back and forth, and
neighbor with her."
I waited a minute, but he didn't make
no move towards showln'nie any Prince.
But snys he :
" What kind of calico do you want to
I thought he came off awful sudden
from Princes to calico, but I didn't Ray
nolhln'. But I told hint "I would like
to look at a chocklate colored ground
work with a set flower on it."
" Shan't I show you a Dolly Varden?"
I see plainly that he was a trying to
Impose on me, tnlkln' about Princes nnd
Dolly Vnrden, nnd snys I with dignity :
" if I wnnt to mnke Miss Vnrden's nc
qunlntance, I can, without nsklng yotr
to Introduce me. But," I continued
coldly, "I don't care about gcttln' no
qunlnted with Miss Vnrden, I henrd her
nnme talked over too much In the street.
I am afraid she halnt a likely girl. I
nm nfrnld she halnt such a girl us I
should wntit my Tlrzah Ann toassoclate
with. Ever sense I started from Jones
vllle I hnve heard that girl talked
nbout." 1 There Is Dolly Varden I' and
Oh look at Dolly Varden 1' I have
henrd It (I bet) more'n a hundred times

that no modest girl would be trnipsin'

henrd a word nbout old Mr. nnd Mrs.
Vnrden or nny of the Vnrden boys.
Not that it is anything out of character
to go oil" on a tower. I am oil" on a tower
myself," says I, with quite a good deal
of dignity, " hut It don't look well for a
pound girl likelier to he stream in "round
alone. I wish I could see old Mr. and
Mrs. Varden I would ndvlse the old
man nnd woman to keep Dolly nt home
if they have any regard Tor her good

he tried to turn it ofTwilh a laugh. And
he said sonielhln' about her "bein' the

But I jest stopped him pretty quick.

laugh. But I know a guilty conscience

hnint one to break u bruised reed more
than once into. And my spectacles
beamed more mildly onto him, and I
said to him in a kind but firm manner.
" Young man, if I was in your place,
I would drop Dolly Varden's acquaint
ance." Says I, " I advise you for your
own good, jest as I would Thomas Jef
ferson." " Who is Thomas Jefferson," says he.
Says I, in a cautious tone, " He is Jo
slah Allen's child, by his first wife, and
the own brother of Tirzuh Ann."
I then laid my hand on a piece of
chocklate ground calico, and says I,
" This suits me pretty well, but I have
my doubts," says I, exnniinln' it closer
through my specs, " I mistrust it will
fade some. What is your opinion?"
says I, speakin' to an elegantly dressed
woman by my Bide, who stood there
with her rich silk dress a truilin' down
on the floor.

but I interrupted him und says, I :
" I guess you would bo dumb yourself,
If your head was cut off." Snys I, in
awful sarcastic terms, "It'ud be pretty
apt to make anybody dumb."
Then he explained It to me that It was
a wooden figure, to hang their dresses
and maiitillys on. Aud I cooled down
nnd told him I would take a yard nnd

asked him In a awful snrcastlo tone If he

would think you did." Says I, turnln'

A Politician who Kept a Promise.
PROBABLY the oddest genius who
ever occupied a public position in
Missouri was the late JlobertM. Stewart.
He lived in St. Joseph, where he arose
In political power. The first President
of the Hannibal and St. Joseph Rail
road, he was called its father. He was
elected governor in 1807.
When Doniphan's expedition was or
ganized fo go through New Mexico nnd
to co-operate with the main United
States army In 147, Bob Stewnrt was a
member of the company raised in Bu
chanan county. Four days out his gun
wns accidentally discharged, the con
tents, entering one of his legs, shatter
ing a bone and disabling him. One of
the company, William Orover, was de
tailed to remain with Stewart. Grover
watched over his friend with the care of
a brother, and Stewart not then dream
ing of his future distinction, said, "Bill,
old fellow, I'll pay you back some day I
The time will come !"
Ten years later, Hill Orover, the
friend of Stewart was arrested as a par
ticipant In a political crime, tried, con
victed and sentenced to the penitentiary
for ten years. Not long after his con
viction Stewart was nominated for gov
ernor. He saw his friend before he was
incarcerated, and said, "Bill, the first
thing I'll do ufter I'm inaugurated will
be to pardon you out. And I'm sure to
Bob was elected and inaugurated. True
to his word and the native instincts of
gratitude, he went to the penitentiary
and inquired for Bill Orover. He was
not there. He was one of a detail called
out to dig a well in Jefferson City, and
was then engaged In that work.
Off thegovernor posted to the well in
which Orover was at work. On reach
ing the place, he leaned over the well
and cried out :
" Bill, nre you there ?"
"Who's that?" asked a voice from
the subterranean depths below.
" It's me Bob Stewart 1 Come up out
o' there d n you! I've pardoned
In a few minutes Orover was hauled
up out of the well. Then was exhibited
a curious spectacle of the Governor of a
great State walking through the streets of
thecaptital urm in arm with a stripe-suited
convict. He took his friend up to" a
clothing store, rigged him out in a new
suit and made him a guest at the Gov
ernor's mansion, afterward providing
for him a start in business.
The Sailor'8 Story.
T'VE BEEN fourteen years a sailor,
X Miss, and I've found that in 'all
parts of the world I could get along as
well without alcoholio liquors ns with
them, and better, too. Some years ago,
when we lay in Jamaica, several of us
were sick with the fever, and amongst
the rest, the second mute. The doctor
had given him brandy to keep him up,
but I thought it was a queer kind of
' keeping up.' Why, you see, it stands
to reason, Miss, that if you heap fuel on
the fire It will buru the faster, aud put
ting brandy to a fever 19 just tho same
kind of thing. Brandy is more than
half alcohol, you know. Well, the doc
tor gave him up,and I was sent to watch
with him. No medicine was left, for It
was of no use. Nothing would help
him, and I had my directions what to do
with the body when he was dead.
Towards midiilght he asked for water. I
got him the coolest I could, and gave
him nil he wanted, and if you'll llieve
me, Miss, in less than three bout's he
drank three gallons. The sweat rolled
off from him like ruin. Then he 'sank
off, and I thought sure he was gone, but
he was sleeping, as sweetly as a child.
In the morning, when the doctor eame.
ho nsked me what time the mate died.
Won't you go In and look at him ?'
said I. He went in and took the mate's
'Why,' said he, 'the man Is not
dead ! He's alive and doing well. What
have you been giving him ?
'Water, simply water, find all he
wanted of HI' said I. I don't know as
the doctor learned anything from that,
but I did, and no doctor puts alcoholics
down me, or any of my folks, for a
fever, I can tell you. I'm a plain, un
lettered man, but I know too much to
let any doctor burn me up with alco
hol." Hastily Formed Intimacies.
You can always judge better of a per
son's character by her Jiianner of talk
ing with others, than by what she ad
dresses directly to you, and by what she
says of others than by what she says to
them. A conversation like this ought
to put you on your guard against any
Intimacy of a girl capable of It. The
vivacity of youthful feelings is such that
it often hurries girls Into Intimacies
which Roon prove uncongenial and bur
densome. You mistake an accidental
agreement for real sympathy, one
ngreenble Interview for nn insight Into
the whole character; and thus, by Judg
ing too hastily, you judge wrongly. Far
be It from us to recommend a suspicious
character; we would rather see a young
heart deceived ogaln and ngnin, than see
it nourishing suspicion as a habit of the
mind ; but we would have you make it
a rule never to pledge yourself to any
Intimacy until you have taken time to
consideryourfirst Impressions, audio
distinguish between the charm that
really belongs to n new ncqualntance,
and that which wns thrown over your
first Interview by accidental circumstan
ces nnd associations.
The poorest girls In the world are
those who have never been taught to
work. There are thousand of them.
Ilich parents have petted them ; they
have been taught to despise labor and
depend upon others for a living, and are
perfectly helpless. If misfortune comes
upon their friends, ns it often does, their
case is hopeless. The most forlorn and
miserable women upon earth belong to
this class. It belongs to parents to pro
tect their daughters from this deplorable
condition. They do them a great wrong
if they neglect it. Every daughter should
be taught to earn her own living. The
rich as well ns tho poor require this
training. The wheel of fortune rolls
swiftly round; the rich are very likely
to become poor nnd the poor rich. Skill
to labor Is no disadvantage to the rich
nnd is indispensable to the poor. 'Well-to-do
parents must educate their chil
dren to work. No reform is more Im
perative than this.
No Pretty Indian Squaws Among the Sioux.
a pretty jnuiaii pijiihw uoes noi exist.
among the Sioux they are all fut,short,
stumpy and ungraceful In movement.
The tall, slender Alfaratas and Wanitas
are purely creatures of romance and far
removed from these fat squaws, with
their faces painted in vermillion hues,
and their skirts and homely moccasins.
The beaded embroidery on moccasins,
leggins and blankets are for the braves
only, and it is surprising to notice the
tasteful designs in which some of their
pieces nre ornamented. The squaws
never greet us in as friendly a manner
as the braves, aud their stolid stare is
quite different from the benign smiles
and " how" of the men. When they
meet a lady driving they make remarks
that must be sarcastic, from the way in
which they are enjoyed, and when a
lndy on horseback presents herself, their
laughter is immoderate. As they ride
with a foot in each stirrup, a side saddle
cause them to stare, jeer and shout with
3?" The following dialogue is reported
ns having takeu place between a game
keeper and a patient looking though the
iron gate of a French lunatio asylum :
"Patient That's a line hoi so, what's it
worth ? Keeper $500. Patient And what
did the gun cost? Keeper $100. Patient
And those dogs 1 Keeper $S0, I believe.
Patient What have you got in that
gamebng ? Keeper A woodcock. Patient
Well, now, you had better harry on, for
if our governor catches a nan who has
spent $'i0 to got a woodcock worth thirty
cents, he'll have him under lock and key
iu no time, I tell yon."
Mary O'Cjnuur was a widow, young,
pluffp, and pretty. Charles Neligan was
a husband, and fifty years of age. They
were neighbors in North Cambridge, Mass.
Mrs. Neligan fell sick, Mr. O'Connor at
tended her, and Neligan fell in love with
the fair nurse. Couitship went on briskly
while Mrs. Nelligan was slowly dying, and
the pair in health agreed to marry as soon
as convenient after death had removed the
only impediment. Death did its expected
work, hut the widower's ardor soon cooled,
aud he refused to keep the engagement.
Mrs. O'Connor has just been awarded $t00
by a jury.
