Story of My Courtship.
SHE was a pretty girl, was Jemima-1
petlte-Uiat's what I like-bright
eyes, luxuriant locks a white and pink
complexion, plump and compact. She
was always In good humor, and we soon
became the very best of frlouds nay,
more for who could help being affec
tionate toward her V Everybody loved
her. When the boatmen called her "a
sweet little craft," they expressed though
vulgarly, the sentiment of my own
heart. I was in love with Jemima, and
Jemima well, Jemima was not indif
ferent to me. I had not nerve to ask
her, in so many words, would she ac
cept my hand and name. I spoilt a
quire of paper in the effort to utter my
thoughts in a letter; so at last, on her
birthday, the 15th of May, I ventured
to present her with an elegant bound
book, and on a little slip of paper inside
I wrote :

this trlflluK gift let me know you accept

said ; " You received my humble offer

Of course I responded I had not.
" Then do at once," she said ; " for,
goodness gracious me, If he was to find
us out in anything Bly, and trying to
keep it from him, it would be awful I"
It is much worse than asking the girl,
especially such a peppery pld party as
Captain Wattleborough ; however I
screwed myself up, and when Jemima
was down about the place, playing on
our piano, and I knew he would be
making his evening toilet by putting on
a pilot coat I ventured to look in upon
him. Altera few words on ordinary
topics, such as bow Were we both, how
the weather, I hemmed and began,
' Captain, I am ambitious."

" Don't encourage me too much Cap
tain; I'm ambitious in your direction."
u Boy, you're not going to sea, are
" No, Captain ; I I I I aspire to
the honor of being your son-in-law 1"
The Captain looked me full in the face
then said : ' i
" Have you money 1"'
Of course I hadn't and he told me to
go and get It before venturing to aspire
to the hand of Jemima.
" But, my dear Captain " I ven
tured to expostulate.
" Get off' my doorstep I"
" Let me speak for a moment to Jemi
ma." " det ofF my doorstep I"
He accompanied this last instruction
by a thrust which sent me staggering in
to the Btreet.
My affair with Jemima was at an end.
The Captain would not listen to reason
that is, he would not listen to me. All
the letters I wrote to Jemima were sent
back to me. I grew weary, packed up
and packed off with a letter of introduc
tion to a firm In China. Well, the for
tune was not so easy to make, but at the
expiration of twenty years I began to
think it sufficiently large to warrant my
return to " the girl I left behind me." I
had heard very little from home. Fath
er and mother were still alive, but the
Captain was dead. They had carried
him through the cornfields one sum
mer's day to the little churchyard, and
there tbey buried him.
Jemima, I understood lived in the old
house and was Btlll single. Bo full of
emotion, all the tenderness for the dear
girl X had left behind me rapidly reviv

thing, just as I was, to have the old

not reply, but leaving me where I was,

" Somebody wants you."

I sat down opposite to her, and thought
of what she was. She looked at me
very steadily, and I thought I detected
disappointment in her glance.

me, suggesting the very same Idea to

We are to be friends nothing more.
But that could not last. I was the
first to give in. I called upon her, and
said a good deal, and she cried, and then
we said why not f and then she put her
head upon my breast and spoilt my shirt
front as she had done before.
"You are not so very fat," she said
"You are hot so very lean," I said,
laughing also. .
" You can wear a scalp," she said.
" You can dye," I responded. 7

all settled. We were settled, and here

A TOLEDO paper says: The writer
was talking to a detective a few
days ago, on one of the principal streets
when suddenly the conversation was in
terrupted by my companion exclaiming
to a passer-by :
"Whatl You here yet V"
"I'll leave in in ten minutes, Mr.
Blank so help me 1" and the man ex.
panded into blasphemous oaths, which
are characteristic of his class.
. " Time is up," said the detective ;
" the next time I see you I will pinch
The man passed on. He was a little
over medium Light, low-browed, thick
set, dark haired, wicked eyed, slightly
marked with small-pox and had a scar
on his face. His clothing wa9 good ;
but he bore the unmistakable air of a
thief and a ruffian.
" Who Is that y" was asked of the
The latter looked at his questioner in
pitying surprise and replied :
" Why, that is Irish Mike, alias Day
ton Mike, alias, Frank Williams, alias
George Williams right name Mike Jen
nings, of Dayton, Ohio."
"Who is hey"
" Don't you know him y He is a pen
ny-weighter. He had laid a plan with
his moll to work the jewelry stores
here. I tumbled on it so I have block
ed his game by ordering him to quit the
town., - ,
As the reputation of the great Mike
was not recalled to the questioner by his
name, so hla business was not suggested
by the term " penny-weighter."
"What Is a penny-weighter t" was
asked, with a feeling that his ignorance
would not enhance the inquirer in the
esteem of his detective friend.
" Don't you know t Is it possible
anybody don't know y" queried the de
He assured him that one at least did
" Well, well, that is strange," said he
musingly. "If you don't know I'll
tell you. The racket is simply lifting
chains and Jewelry at the stores."
" Lifting y" was the exclamation.
" Stealing," replied he.
" But how y
" Easy enough. Take a chap like
that one I just spoke to. He goes into
a jewelry store with a confederate (usu
ally his moll), and he and she wants to
look at long ladies or gents' vest chains.
The chains are In cloths aud spread
out before them. Bhe looks at them and
keeps the attention of the seller. He
gets one in his hand, pretends to blow
bis noBe with his finger and thumb and
then puts his hand Into his pocket,pulls
out his handkerchief and wipes his nose.
Now when he pulls that handkerchief
he drops what he has lifted into his
pocket. That's penny. weighting. ;
" Sometimes he will go Into a Jewelry
store and pretend to be a railroad man.
Then be will pick out an article or Jew.
elry, make an advance on it and have It
kept until he callsagaln. He will some
times make three or four payment, at
as many different calls, and on each Oc
casion he will lift something aud gener
ally gets the article he has paid for be
sides.". " But how can he do this Y How can
he fool the Jeweler If" : :
' That beats me," replied the detec
tive, " In the first plaoe you saw what
a give-away his looks are Then bis
moll Is a bad woman. Any one can see
it who looks at her, You'd think a Jew

works the best stores. He has played
his racket at Cleveland, Pittsburgh,
Chicago, Dayton, Cincinnati every
whereand on pretty sharp business
"Do you think he'll leave y"
" Sure of it I He knows that every
Jewelry store In town Is up to him now,
and be can't do anything unless he
comes down to clothes lines."
" But bow does it pay y"
" Well, as near as I can get at it, he
lifted in Chicago alone In one year
about $5,0C0 worth. This he sold for
fifty cents on the dollar. Of course he
was pulled, and had expenses; but he
gets a living out of It."
" Why do you let him go now ? "
" Because prevention is better than
cure. If lie Is out of the town he can
not steal in it. He'll go to Chicago or
Pittsburgh from here. They are Ills
favorite working grounds ; he'll get to
work somewhere, but we will telegraph
him ahead, so that he can't do much if
the police choose to prevent him."
The writer thanked the detective for
his useful information concerning the
mysteries of the gloriouB art of penny
weighting and left him a wiser man.

A HARTFORD jeweler, says the
Courant of that city, recently direct
ed the attention of a friend to a rough
appearing old farmer sauntering down
Main street, and remarked : ,
" I've been sold worse on that man
than on any other in ray whole business
life." , . - ...
The man fully three score years and
ten, wore shabby pantaloons, rough cow
hide boots, innocent of the slightest
trace of blacking, a vest soiled in front
and with the back partly in tatters ; was
In his shirt sleeves, without collar, and
his head covered by a tile, fashionable
many years ago.
" That was about bis style,", contin
ued the merchant, " when he dropped
in at my store one day during the war,
and said he wanted to buy a watch..
Judging from his appearance that he
meant something in the future, after the
scarecrow season was over and he had
drawn his money, I didn't bustle around
very lively to make a trade. I thought
a ten dollar silver watch would , about
close out his pile and shoved one across
the counter to him. He merely glanced
at It, and quietly asked, " Don't you
keep anything better r1" This nettled
me and for a bluff I hauled out an
American watch, one of the costliest we
had in the store, worth one hundred and
seventy-five dollars in gold, and gold
was worth somewhere about two hun
dred then. He examined it carefully,
asked its price, and then to my amaze
ment said, "That'll do." He dived
down into his pantaloons pocket and
after fishing out of the way a roll of
greenbacks as big as your hat he hauled
up a purse of gold, counted out the one
hundred and seventy-five dollars, shov
ed the watch into his vest pocket and
walked out. You may imagine that
this excited my curiosity . and after a
while I ascertained who my strange cus
tomer was. He lived a few miles down
the river and Was worth enoueh to have
bought out the whole establishment.
Bince then I haven't tried any more

what he's got down in his pockets any

If you should come down stairs some
day and see a smouldering fire Just start-
ng in one of your floors.stealthlly steal
ng into your carpet, you would not be
very likely to sit down beside it and fan
It, much less would you run over to a
neighbor's and have her bring the bel
lows to blow it up. Not if you were a
woman in her right senses. You know
quite well what speedy measures you
would take to Smother or quench it.
Dear young housekeepers, tbere are
worse fires which start up silently in
homes than were ever kindled by Lucl
fer matches. They begin small. Cross
words usually start them, but how the
fire spreads when once kindled, If only
it gets a little fanning 1 One sure way
to ran the blnze Is to run over to a neigh
bor's and talk your trouble over. Tell
just how unreasonable John Is, and how
little he sympathizes with your trials,
and unless your friend Is an uncommon
ly wise woman, you will go home mor
wretched than you came, and feeling
harder than ever toward John. You
have gained nothing, but you have fur
nlshed food for considerable scandal, for
nothing travels faster than the 111 news
that " So and so don't get along well to
gether." That which was only a trans,
lent flash or Ill-temper has been blown-
into a conflagration that is' likely to
burn up your domestic happiness.
Some one says if there is ever anything
for which we are thankful, It is for an
gry words not spoken. I would add for
domestic skeletons we did not exhibit be
fore the world. Better keep them lock
ed up In their closet. They will not
shock or harrow your sensibilities half
so much there.
Only possess your soul in quietness,
and the fire will die out. If your inmost
consciousness tells you that you have
the true and devoted love of your hus
band, you will not be much moved by
little things. Tears and life's mutual
joys and sorrows will draw all true
hearts closer to one another, and the
once vexatious things will seem like
trifles, as you glance backward over
Remember that nothing helps along
domestic troubles like talking over
them ; nothing smothers them like si

Aside from the lamentable havoc and
