Where cool palms lean along a brook.
As crooked as a shepherd's crook:
Red parrots call from the orange trees.
Where white blooms kiss the idle breeze;
The gray dove coos his low love-tale.

Amid the palms a low church stands;

The priceless victories of peace.
And woo her 'mid these olive trees.
And win an earthly paradise.

Sweep like a surge that sweeps the shore,

The Experience of a YoUDg Rustic Who Sought

ninety-five dcftfars in cash! iChartea had
read the city papers and heard the
drummers talk who visited our coun
try town. He avowed himself disgust

seek a situation in the commercial line.
Charlotte was the i?oal of tris ' future
career, ne had no experience in mer
chandise, but had taken lessons in book
keeping and penmanship under an itin

in our village ; besides, he had taught
an old held school, and had a recom

m his inexperienced opinion, would
place him in any situation that he
would accept in Charlotte,
I, somewhat inspired by his self-con-
hdence and enthusiasm, agreed to in
vest a few dollars in a trip to Charlotte
with him,to"look round" nothing more.
We took a "buss up town and register

vvittkowsky x Baruch, Julias & Conen
and a large hardware store under the
hotel. We were clad in our best, and
Charles fancied his new suit gave him
quite the air of a commercial man : but
the, shrewd city men knew better.
When we entered the establislvment of
Wittkow8ky & Baruch no less than a

stretched into a wise blare, and their

youngster shied close up to me, and
with an arr which said, -traae or trav

sired nothing. However, my friend who
possessed "the cheek or a government
mule, demanded in a tone oi voice just
three times too loud, to see the proprie

met a gentleman of small statue, small

THE YOUNG LADY'S STATEMENT.

sad catastrophe, and who .reside out"
side of the ity, yesterday . etehtrtgiri:
answer to duestiohs. eave. in substance
the following statement, which we pub
lish to silence the many conflicting ru
mors which have been SDread as to the
nature. tJf the alleged insult : '
. Mr. Poindexter was to see pie jSunday.
evemng, and took: me out to anve. 1
told him what had cfccurred, tthd after
navmar reacnea name, wnen .seatea .in
the parlor, I again told Mr. Poindexter
m full all about it. I said tx him that
about three weeks ago I went to the
store of Wingo, Ellett.& Crump tonur-i
chase, a pair of shoes, and on lasif riday,
in company with a lady,- liieack again
called at the sto,re tq make, ansescehange
oi tnese' snoes, as tney aid not suit me,
and to b.ave a pair repaired The gen
tleman who waited upon mev was Mr.
Curtis, whom I had alwavs endeavored
to aVoid. as' I thought him rude., He
was especially soon this occasion, when
he insisted upon lacrng iip ' my shoes, a
service which I peremptorily1 , declined.
l nave no acquaintance witn. mm, oxn
he endeavored to draw me into a con
versation. After I had handed him the
shoes he held up one of them and re
marked that it was a very pretty little
shoe and that a pretty little foot filled
it. I asked him not to make any com
ments about my shoe, for I was very in
dignant at his conduct. He then com
menced to talk to me ahout the cuiier-
ent soeiables he had attended during
the winter, and commented on how the
ladies dressed, and asked me flay opin
ion in a manner which I considered to
be very impertinent. I turned to leave
mm, when I found that I had not ob
tained the heel-taps that 1 wanted. He
left me and in a few moments returned
with t hem, and when he did so, holding
the shoes in his hand, he asKea me how
it was that I wore off the heel of my
shoes, and wanted me to shoV ltim my
foot. I was so much confused and mor
tified that I did not know, what. to 4t
for his behavior to me ' was very offen
sive. I started out of the 8 torey hand
ing him the money in payment io: the
heel-taps, and when I reached the side-
waiK and was about to get in tne
phaeton, he came out of the store and
said I had not given him.. lie proper
change. I was not' posittV1 whether'. I
did or not, for I was so much confused.
He then opened : his hand and m it
was a dollar-note, j told him I thought
I had paid him all, He then returned
into the store and took from the coun
ter the balance of the money that he
had left there. I then started to get in
to the phaeton, when he took hold of
my arm, and, assisting me, squeezed it
quite hard much more so than I
thought any gentleman ought to have
done. I told . the lady who was with
m of this, and further remarked that
I would never go into that store again
while that young man was employed
there. ' After having told Mr. Poindex
ter what I have stated to you he said in
a jocular way that he thought he would
go by the store and norsewhip Mr. Cur
tis, and asked me to give him a descrip
tion of him. I, laughing, remarked that
he was anything but good-looking, and
Teally, he is yery ugly. He then remark
ed that ii he (Mr. Curtis) was a large
man it would be doubtful whether he
would attempt to horsewhip him, for he
might in return get whipped himself.
From the manner in which he spoke I
did not for a moment think that any
difficulty would grow out of the affair,
nor did I think that it was Mr. Poindex-
ts purpose to make an attack or to
call him to account. He certainly said
nothing to me that was calculated to
lead me to believe that he would, and 1
was very much surprised when Mr.
Poindexter's brother came to me this
afternoon and told me what had occur
red, I deeply regret the affair.
After having made inquiries of the
reporter of the condition of Mr. Curtis,
she said she sincerely hoped that the
young man would recover.
At 20 minutes past 11 o'clock last even

flickering since the dreadful occurrence

On Wednesday of last week the Du

as already reported by telegraph, wfl
entered in broad daylight and robbed
of $3,400. On Friday morning the ar
rested parties were mysteriously re
leased, and it was discovered that the
bank had recovered all the stolen mon
ey. The cashier, in an interview with a
reporter, says : " I found that I had not
a very' good case against the two men
that were arrested, and 1 was afraid
that they might get away on some tech
nicality, and besides, you know, the big

about it now," said the cashier.

Good cireTfT for Consumptives.
There Is a form of consumption which was better
indicated by the old fashioned name of "decline."
It is the dreaded scourge of some parts of the
Southern States, claiming more victims every year
than are swept away by the most terrible visitations
of the yellow fever. The malady arises from the
Inability of the paUents' system to take up and as
similate the nourishing ingredients of the food
that is eaten. Some years ago the medical profes
sion with remarkable unanimity, agreed that Cod
Liver Oil contained the most concentrated and
easily absorbed elements of nutrition. If the nau
seous taste and smell of the oil could be avoided it
would unquestionably be the most sovereign reme

race. And these repulsive properties are success
