Here she comes running and wants
somebody to hold her while she
coughs and coughs until the blood
darkens her face and the tears run
down her cheeks. The poor little
orphan. I wonder what the whoop
ing cough was made for and the
measles and mumps and scarlet fever,
and the colic and all these infantile
diseases that prey upon and distress
the poor little innocents what have
they done that they should suffer. I
know what I have done and left un
done, and it is no wonder that grown
people, except a few, have headache
and toothache and rheumatism and
consumption, and a whole doctor's
book full of complaints. I feel that I
deserve my share of all these bodily
troubles, and even it I don't. I know
that they better prepare me for
heaven. They make me so tired
that I am willing to go when my
time cometh. But I can't under
stand why these little children, who
are all unconscious of original sin or
any other sin should suffer so.
But suppose that we can't under
stand it, what are we going to do'
about it nothing nothing of course,
and so the best thing to do is to
accept all the conditions of life and
be thankful. "Though He slay me
yet will I trust in Him." On this
beautiful spring morning, while the
sweet south wind is breathing its
balmy odors upon us, I was ruminat
ing upon life and its measure of joy
and sorrow, and 1 wondered why
both were not more evenly distributed.
Why should bad luck and peril ovi 1
take some and leave others? Why
should the illfated Naronic go down
with all on board and the Aurania
come safe to port ? Why should one
man fall in battle and his com rack
escape unharmed ? Is it fate or pro
vidence ? Is it chance or detinv that
one should be taken and the other
lefc ? I know not and will not let it
disturb me. I do know that I am
here and have a duty to perform. I
Life is real, life is earnest.
And the grave is not its goal.
I know that virtue is everywhere
respected and that good people save
the wot Id just as ten good men would
have saved Sodon.
What a shock it is to the civilized
world when a ship goes down at sea
and passengers crew.
Sink into the depth with bubbling groan
Unknelled, uncofiined, and unknown.
Why is it, why does it so harrow
up our feelings and provoke our ten
derest sympathies? Here are 6,000
people dying every year in the Unit
ed States and they would make a fu
neral procession 560 miles long. Not
less than 50,000 kindred are bereaved
and mourn for them, and yet a'l cof
fins and graves and saddened hearts
and homes do not concern the public
like the sinking of a ship at sea. The
manner of the death Is so horrible.
Indeed, drowning is said to be the
least repulsive of all deaths lor it is
said to be painless, the agony of mind
is soon over, and yet it is an awful
calamity. No help; no kindred, no
last words, no messages of love, no
requiem , no flowers on the grave! In
my early youth the shock of the loss
of the pilot in which Theodorsea AU
ston perished has not passed away.
She was the beautiful daughter ol
Aaron Burr. That ship went down
with all on board and no one knew
when or where, and the whole south
was grieved. She had married a dis
tinguished son of South Carolina and
was herself the great granddaugter
of Jonathan Edwards, and her beauty
and her loveliness had saved her fa
ther from being convcited of treason.
It was a tender story that my father
used to tell me anil I loved such
things, and I love them yet. The'
next disaster th it shocked the country
in my youth was the loss of the Home

when almost in sight of land. I re

Prince, her most distinguished law
yer, who sank with that vessel. lie
was our United States senator and
the gifted author of many sketches.
Had he sickened and died at home
not half the grief and sympathy
would have been manifested by the
public heart. We are more reconcil
ed to the inevitable than to the un
seen, unexpected stroke that comes
at sea from mighty hand of God. We
all desire to die at home -at home,
where loving hands can smooth the
aching head and loving eyes look
down into our own and wee). I do,
and if I don't get better, I am not
going far away any more. There is
nothing sadder to me than to see
kindred, who are near and dear
gather at the depot to meet the
corpse ot a son or a daughter who
had died in a strange land and wjjose

But i do not km w whv my thoughts
have run this way for the day is
bright and the birds are singing and
the fruit trees are in bloom and there
is nothing to make me sad nothing
save the struggling child that every
little while has to rack her little frame
with that relentkss cough and often
when it is over, to hear her say : "Oh.
I am so tired." I wish that we could
divide out pain and trouble and that

The Southern Confederacy started
to oppose the invading f es with an
empty Treasury. So a "promise to
pay" had to be resorted to.
One of the first tilings to be done
by the Treasury of the young nation
was to issue legal tender of some
The making of Curded-, rate bonds
and notes was a great trial with the
young Treasury. In the South no
engravers could be found, and noth
ing like good bulk paper.
So arrangements were made to
print some bora Is in New York.
The work was gone about very care
fully, and every means used to avoid
detection. But the bonds were
seized, however, before they left
New York. These bonds were
printed by the American Bank Note
Company, and when the Eederal
authorities f mud this mi:, through a
telltale cniployic. the Southern Con
federacy had to n-'lv upon its own
resources to get up bonds and notes.
An engraver ot cuds ami posters
by the name of il-vef, a German by
nationality, hvt d in Richmond, and
he was employe; 1 to issue the first
notes, which were eight one hundred
dollar 1-iiis. One of these bills would
bring con;dcrubie now as a relic.
A paper was smuggled through
the lines irons New Vork and given
to II oyer. He had only old and
interior stones ior engraving pur
poses, and with them he made- the
first Confederate Treasury notes.
The stone h.al previous;-,- been used
to engrave placards.
Of com.-.e they were faulty and full
ot errors, and under any other cir
cumstances would have been thrown
away, but some kind of legal tender
had to be secured at or.ee, and the
rude notes were accepted.
When the Secretary read the
proofs he ordered them printed, in
dorsing on the margin of the proof
the following: "When the money
changers become familiar with these
incoming bills it will be as difficult to
pass a counteifeit as if they had been
on si.ee! perhaps more
The German engraver used what
was an old i.uhioucd press even in
that day, and the bills were printed
by hand, a very mow and tedious
These rude, uncouth bills found no
buyers, but were accepud in good
faith by loyal Southern hearts. They
were pledges of a b:ive, fearless
people, and by that people were ac
cepted as such.
They were not worth much upon
their lace, but thousands of men died
to give them value, and three times
as many died to make them worth
less. Soon the country wav flooded
with Confederate bills. 'I lie number
circulated depended on how fast the
Treasury could issue them. Bills of
small denominations soon went out
of style, and nothing under S100 left
the Treasurer's hands, while 500
and Si, 000 bills were as numerous as
$5 bills are to day.

To a few Congressmen who have
talked with him on the subject, Mr.
Cleveland has intimated that he will
call an extra session of Congress to
dispose of the tariff question. No
definite time has been set but the
session will begin either in September
or October. Beyond the decision to
call the extra session no details for
the consideration of Congress have
been arranged, and the subject has
progressed no further than the deter
mination to have Congress meet in
one or the other of the months
named. Mr. Cleveland, it is said,
was led to call the session by the Re
publican defeat of 1890 following so
close on the enactment of the Mckin
ley tariff law. I Ie believes that a fair
test of a new tariff law cannot be had
in a few months, and he has therefore
deemed it wise to have Congress as

Representative Springer of Illinois,

possible for Congress to enact any
measures of the kind wanted earlier
than May if the subject were consid
ered at the regular session beginning
in December. An extra session
would, of course, bring the matter to
a settlement by as much quicker as it
met in advance of the regular date,
and would give the people a fair
opportunity to judge of the merits or
demerits of the measure adopted be

I married a widow who had a
grownup daughter. My father vis
ited the house very often, fell in love
with my step-daughter and married
her. So my father became my son
in-law and my step daughter my
mother, because she was my father's
wife. Some time afterwards my wife
had a son ; he was my father's
brother-in-law and my uncle, for he
was the brother of my step-mother.
My father's wife that is, my step
daughterhad also a son ; he was,

occurred in this port. A seaman be

by a local constable. In the fight
which took place the constable al
most killed the seaman.
The latter was so badly injured
that he was not taken on board the

being given to him, his recovery is
doubtful. This looks some what like
