Sclc&tcd Story.
THE FATAL NAIL
On the evening of June 20, 1837,
peddler on horseback stopped at
the smithy of John Steele, on the
outskirts of Tickhill, near Doncas
ter, England. Several persons
were in the smithy at the time, be
sides the blacksmith and his son
Kichard. The peddler asked Steele
to shoe his horse as soon as ho could ,
as he wished to reach Doncaster
early, and get a bed in time ; for
next day being the fair, a number
of visitors would be looking for ac
commodations. While the smith was shoeing the
horse, another rider came up, also
desiring the smith's services, his
horse having cast a shoe.
The two strangers and the loung
ers got into conversation, and the
Ieddler opened a mahogany case
wkicn was suspended on his should.;
e-, and exhibited his wares, which
consisted of rings, gold and silver
chains, watches, etc On the last
comer's hearing that the peddler
was going to 'Doncaster, he offered
to accompany . him, as Ai was go
tag in the same- direction, adding
that as he was a: stranger the ped
dler might take him to some hou.se
here he could get lodging. The
Peddler replied that , he was going
to the Travel er'8t Rest' on the out
skirts' of Doncaster, as he knew the
landlord. . .
When the smith removed the
shoe from the last comer's horse,
he examined it very closely,1 re
marking that it was made in Hol
derness, pointing out . tho fact that
the nail was peculiarly made, hav
ing a half-split in the head, which
a Holderness fancy. . '
u I'll keep this nail," the smith
id, and drove it as a wedge Into
the handle of a small hammer,
where it passed through the head.
The peddler sent for a flagon of
ale, and they stood drinking and
talking for some time. When the
blacksmith joked the peddler about
Jiuginsucha great hurry when
he first came in, he laughed and ex
claimed :
VPh; that's all right. I've made
op my mind to sleep In the big out
. 'S
VOL. V.
house, where I've often slept be
fore ; it's comfortable, and you take
anybody you like in there, you
know," the peddler added with
sly wink.
When tho two men were ready to
depart, the peddler took a large
wallet from the valise at his sad
dle bow, and paid the smith. The
peddler seemed to make rather an
ostentatious display of his wallet,
which was crammed with bank
notes and gold.
The two men rode off together,
and the smith cleared his place, and
closed it for the night.
In due time the peddler and his
friend reached the Traveler's Rest,
and told the landlord thev would
8ieep in the
Dunuing in the rear,
which had several beds. The ped
dler retired first, and the stranger
remameu oenina to nave supper
and a glass of ale.
.Next morning neither the ped
dler nor his friend appeared, and
the landlord went to arouse them.
He found the door open, and on
entering the room discovered the
peddler in his shirt, lying on the
floor at the far end of the room, in
a pool of blood. His head was bat
tered in, and near him was a ham
mer with blood and hair on tho
head. He was cold and dead.
When the alarm was given, it
was found that tin? horse of the man
who had accompanied the peddler
to tho inn, and occupied the room
witn mm, was missing, and sus
picion at oneo foil upon him as the
murderer, The authorities were
notified, and officers were in pur
suit of the supposed assassin before
the day was an hour older. They
tracked him to Coninhro,' hut lost
trace of him just beyond, on the
road to Sheffield. The keen eyes of
the officers, however, caught sight
of a horse among the branbles in
a valley to the left of the road, and
there the man was captured. He
was terribly frightened so much
so as not to be able to articulate for
some time. Strapped to his sad
dle-bow was a valise, and on open
ing it a well-filled wallet, identi
fied as the peddler's, was found.
Before the coroner, the prisoner,
who. said his name was Henry
Scott, told the most astounding
storv. He said that when he went
to the out-house the peddler had
alreadv cone to bed. which was a
high, old-fashioned tent-bed, with
curtains. Ho went to bed at the
opposite end of the room ; this bed
had curtains also, for the room was
large and draughty. He placed his
clothes upon a chair, and flung his
valise, or holster, on a bit of carpet
at the side of tho bed. He lay awake
for some time, and presently he
heard footsteps in the room.The next
moment the curtain of the bed was
gently drawn, and by the bright
moonlight he saw a face looking
down upon him. He lay quite still,
though greatly alarmed ; the face
disappeared, and retreating steps
were heard. He raised himself on
his elbow, peering through the cur
tain, and distinctly saw two men
near the peddler's bed. They pass
ed around the foot of it and disap
peared on the other side, when in a
moment he heard a scream and a
scuffle, and saw the legs of the ped
dler protrude from tho curtains.
There was a struggle and a suppress
ed cry.and the peddler boundedfrom
the bed and ran, screaming murder,
and holding his valise at arms
length. Two men pursued him;
and Scott, horrified and fear-stricken,
slipped from the bed and hid
himself in a closet. He heard groans
and blows, and the sound of re
treating footsteps; the next mo
ment all was still. Directly, how
ever, there were other footsteps,
and tho curta ins of Scott's bed were
hastily drawn ; tho intruder utter
ed an oath of disappointment and
fled from the room.
Afterwalting for some time Scott
came from the closet, and found the
peddler lying dead on the floor. He
was in a terrible dilemma, knowing
that he would be suspected of the
murder. Panic-stricken, he hastily,
dressed himself, picked up his va
lise irom the' floor, took his horse
from the stable, and departed from
the inn, resolving to seek safety in
flight. It was day when he reached
Conlnbro, and then for the first
time he discovered that the valise
which he had taken from the floor
was not his but the peddler's, which
he had doubtless dropped when the
murderers fell upon him, and in
place of which they no doubt seized
and carried off his, lying on the
carpet close' by.
This extraordinary story was of
course not believed ; Scott was sent
to jail, and in due time was tried
RALEIGH, K. C,
for wilful murder. The evidence
for the prosecution was clear and
convincing, and the prisoner's coun
sel saw no chance for his client's es
cape. The principal witnesses
against him were John Steele and
his son Richard, the men that were
in the smithy when Scott and
the peddler first met, the landlord
of tho inn, who swore that Scott
urged tho pedler to go to another
Inn, and the officers who found the
pedler's valise in Scott's posses
sion.
The hammer with which the mur
der had been committed was pro
duced on the trial, and shown to the
jury. One of them remarked to the
court that it was a black-smith's
8hoeing-hammer. Mr. O'Brien, the
prisoner's counsel, examined it
closely ; ho then stood up, and
handed it to the prisoner, who
glanced at it a moment, and then
handed it back. The next instant
he clutched it. drew it from his
lawyer's grasp,and examined it with
the most intense interest. Then he
leaned on the dock, and spoke in a
hurried tone to his counsel. The
latter, with a flushed and eager face,
made his way to the side of the
prosecuting officer, and conversed
with him in a low tone for several
minutes. The prosecuting officer
spoke to the judge, and beckoned to
an officer, to whom he whispered a
few words. John Steele, the black
smith, was recalled to the witness
stand byMr. O'Brien, who said :
"Mr. Steele, you are an old and
experienced blacksmith, are you
not?"
41 Yes, sir."
"Did you work at your trade in
Holderness?"
"Yes, sir, when I was a young
man."
"Anything peculiar in the manu
facture of horse-shoe nails in that
district?"
"I think there is, sir."
"Pray tell us what that peculiar
ity is, Mr. Steele?"
"The head is divided in the mid
dle."
"Anything like the head of that
nail used as a wedge in the handle
of that hammer ?" asked the coun
sel, handing him the implement.
The witness's hand shook like a
leaf as he reached it out for the ham
mer, and his lips became parched,
while his staring eyes were fixed on
his questioner.
"Anything like that nail?" Mr.
O'Brien repeated, calmly looking
in the eye of the witness.
"Yes, sir."
"Should you say that nail had
been made in Holderness?"
"It looks like it, sir."
'Mr. Steele," the counsel said
moving close to him, and standing
so that judge and jury could dis-.
tinctly see both witness and Interro
gator, "did you ever see that ham
mer before you saw it in court?"
The witness gave a gasp, and
then , recovering himself, he replied:
"Yes, sir, saw it in the hands of the
coroner."
At this juncture the officers were
. A A.
seen striving to prevent a young
man from leaving the court-room ;
it was Richard Steele, the black
smith's son.
tt
Let me go," he said ; "that's the
old scoundrel that did it. He knows
that hammer's his, well enough.
He planned the whole thing, and
led me into it ; I'll blab the whole
story. Let me go, and I'll hang the
old villain, if he Is my father."
The scene that followed cannot be
described. A nolle prosequi was
entered as to Scott, and he wTas
transferred into an important wit
ness. Steele and his son being
duly indicted and tried for the mur
der of the peddler, Scott swore to
the blacksmith's having taken the
nail from the shoe, and driven it
into the head of the hammer as a
wedge, remarking that it was made
in Holderness. The hammer was
furthermore identified as belonging
to Steele, and testimony was given
which showed that the blacksmith
and his son were absent from home
the night of the murder, a market-
man swearing that he passed them
near Doncaster, going in the direc
tion of Tickhill, at 3 o'clock on the
morning of tho 21st of June. But
the evidence that settled their fate
m 1 9 1 1 411 1 In.
was iurnisneu uy ot-un a vmi&c,
which was discovered in the ash heap
back of the smithy. Steele and his
son were convicted and sentenced
to be hanged ; and both made a full
confession to the following effect :
The smith resolved upon the rob
bery, and murder, if need be, of the
peddler as s xmjas he discovered that
he man had a large sum of money.
He disclosed his plan to his (son,
who assented. They were about to

start after the two men, and get
ahead of them by a bridlepath,
when the smith changed his plan.
If they did that they would have to
attack them both in the open road
and on horseback. The smith knew
the inn to which they were going,
and was well acquainted with t&e
outbuilding in which they were to
sleep. He proposed, therefore, to
rob the peddler in his sleep, and
use violence only In case it was
necessary to secure their safety.
The reader
knows the rest from
the tale told by Scott. After the
smith and his son had left the room
with what they supposed was the
peddler's valise, Steele's mind mis
gave him, and a dread that Scott
had been an observer of the bloody
deed, and would recognize the per
petrators, seized him.
He hurried back to the room, re
solved to kill Scott if he found him
awake. On discovering the bed
empty, the smith dropped his ham
mer In affright, the only explana
tion to his mind of Scott's absence
being that he had witnessed the
crime, and had left the place secret
ly to give the alarm. The smith
and his son departed panic-stricken;
and on reaching home discovered,
to their intense mortification and
disappointment, that the valise, for
which they had murdered a man
and exposed themselves to the
gallows, contained only a few old
clothes and a bible.
John and Richard Steele were
executed Dec. 8th, 1837.
Miscellaneous.
Life Lengthened.
Dr. Hall, in his excellent Journal
of Health, gives the following sensi
ble and suggestive rules under the
above heading :
1. Cultivate an equal temper;
many have fallen dead in a fit of
passion.
2. Eat regularly, not over thrice a
day, and nothing between meals.
3. Go to bed at regular hours.
Get up as soon as you wake of your
self, and do not sleep in the day
time at least not longer than ten
minutes before noon.
4. Work always by the day, and
not by the job.
5. Stop working before you are
very much tired before you are
"fagged out."
b. cultivate a generous and ac
commodating temper.
7. Never cross a bridge before you
come to It ; this will save you half
tho troubles of life.
8. Never eat when you are not
hungry, nor drink when you are not
thirsty.
9. Let your appetite alv&ys come
uninvited.
10. Cool off in a place greatly
warmer than the one in which you
have been exercising. This simple
rule would prevent incalculable
sickness and save millions of lives
every year.
11. Never resist a call of nature
for a single moment.
12. Never allow yourself to be
chilled through and through ; it is
this which destroys so many every
year, in a lew aays' sicxness, rrom
pneumonia called by some lung
fever or inflammation of the
lungs. ,
13. Whoever drinks no liquids at
meals will add years of pleasurable
existence to his life. Of cold or
warm drinks the former is the most
pernicious. unnKing at meals in
duces persons to eat more than they
otherwise would, as any one can
verify by experiment ; and it Is in
excess in eating which devastates
the land with sickness, suffering
and death.
14. After fifty years of age, If not
a day laborer, and sedentary per
sons at forty, should eat but twice a
day in the morning and about four
in the afternoon ; for every organ
without adequate rest will "give
out" prematurely.
15. Begin early to be - under the
benign influence of the Christian re
ligion, for it "has the promise of the
life that now is and of that which
is to come."
Gilts whicli Cost Nothing.
An exchange, in hinting what
can be done in the way of kindness,
says: A young man begins to
tread the downward path, comes
home at night flushed and un
steady ; the older brothers watch
him keenly and sternly, the sisters
cry in secret, but there is an un
accountable repugnance to inter
fering with him, unless In the way
of lecturing. Perhaps if some effort
were made to brighten the evenings
at home, if his sister coaxed him
out with her, the brothers took him k
into their confidence, if each gave a
little quick, tender care and tact to
guard him, the terrible end might
never have come.
In how many households too has
a certain chill and7 reserve fallen
upon the intercourse of husband
and wife which saddens not only,
their own lives but Irreparably the
years which should be happiest for
theirhiklren. It arises from dif
ference of employment and taste
rather than lack of affection, and
i would disappear if either made any
effort to follow or sympathize with
the other. In how many more
households will you find one mem
ber set apart from the of hers un
cared for, treated with a cool kindly
Indifference ; it may be the deaf old
man, the unmarried aunt, the
mother-in-law, who keenly feels
every newspaper gibe at her ex
pense, but who has no other home
than this in which sjie is so unwel
come ; or it may be Bridget in the
kitchen, who is human after all,
and not a machine. In a word,
there are few of us who, when we
look round our own hearth, cannot
find somewhere a sore need of gifts
which we have long stubbornly
withheld, gifts which cost no
money, but are priceless.

Mother
How my heart has been pained
to see the coolness and indifference
which is often manifested .for an
aged and dependent mother.
Age may wast a mother's beauty,
and dim the lustre of her eyes, her
strength may depart, her limbs re
fuse to support her tottering frame,
or she may become as helpless as an
infant, but shall wo lovo her
less ? Is she not our mother still ?
Has she not toiled and watched
over our helpless Infancy? And
in youth, has she not tried to lead
us in the straight and narrow path ?
And in sickness she wTas our min
Istering angel. Who but a mother
could be so patient, so kind and
affectionate, so gentle and self
sacrificing, as a mother ?
If we have been tempted Into for
bidden paths, if we have followed
in bad counsels and gone astray, if
we have chosen evil companions
and forgotten the good counsels of
our youth, who is so ready to en
courage and lead us back to honor
and virtue, as a mother? She is
ready to forgive, to love aud cher
ish us still.
Who can fathom a mother's love?
She is our friend when all the world
iorautes us. tone win ennr to usi
will die for us if necessary.
A mother'
s love is strong, tender
and true. Hard indeed must be
the heart that can neglect and abuse
a dear old mother.
not welcome, never feel that she is
a burden to her children, never
should her sensitive heart be pained
by an unkind look or word. How
little do w,e appreciate a mother's
tenderness and love, whilo living
how little do we think of her anx
iety for us ! But when she is gone,
and we see the old arm -chair, the
vacant place at the table, and hear
no more her dear voice, then do we
know she is gene, never to return,
and wo cannot call her back. She
has gone ; and happily for us if we
have so treasured our mother, that
we can say we have been faithful
and made her happy, and could
look forward to a meeting beyond
this world.
So Near and Yet so Far.
Not many months ago, in India,
a gentleman and wife having taken
passage for England went on boan
with their baggage. Presently the
husband discovered that there was
time for him to go ashore and see a
man. He went, and when it oc
curred to him that it was time to go
on board again, he hailed a boat
man and ere long found himself on
board a large passenger ship. It
was night. A sleepy steward In
quired the number of his cabin,
which he chanced to remember, as
also that his was the upper berth ;
so he contrived to clamber into It
without disturbing his wife, as he
supposed, who slept beneath. But
when dawn broke, and the ship was
well on her way, a feminine voice
was heard shrieking, in a tone of
terror: "Steward, steward ! there's
a man In my cabin I" The wretch
ed man was aroused, and the situa
tion explained to him. He had
mistaken the ship. They were un
der way for Australia, and his un
happy wife was steaming away to
England under a firm conviction
that he had been robbed and mur
dered by ruffians who frequent the
quays. When he at length arrived
in Australia, he could not even
there relieve her mind, as the cable
connecting that country with Eu
rope was not completed, so that
about four months passed before
she heard anything of him.
The Matrimonial Question.
A writer in Frank Leslie's puts
the matrimonial question pithily
thus : "There is altogether too much
marrying by form of. law' those who
at the most, are only a third or half
married in other waS's ;" and there
is altogether too much urging and
coaxing and alluring young people
into the most important and sacred
of all human relations before they
are prepared or moved to assume
its burdens, and by those who ought
to know better and act'with more
consideration. Wo make too much
of marrying and being married, un
til it is thought by many people
somewhat of a disgrace for a woman
to pass through life alone; when,
in fact, the life of many a single
woman is poetry, romance, rapture
even, in comparison with that of
many ' a wife. So there is a vast
deal of marrying with very little of
rjal marrying; a vast deal of dis
content, heartache, misery, hypoc
risy. aLd unmarrvinff at th loaf

Tho Watch,-
" Watch" Is from a saxon word
sign! flying "to wake." At first
the watch was as large as a sau
cer ; it had weights, and was call
ed " tho pocket clock." The earli
est known usoof the modern name
occurs in a record of 1542, .which
mentions that Edward v 1. had
" one larum of watch of iron, tho
case being likewise of Iron gilt,
with two plummets of lead." The
first great improvement, the sub
stitution of the spring for weights,
was made in 1550. The earliest
springs w?ere not collecl, but only
straight pieces of steels. Early
watches had only one hand, and
required winding twice a day. The
dials were of silver or brass y tho
cases had no crystals, but opened at
back and front, and wero four or
five inches in diameter. There is
a watch in a Swiss museum only
three sixteenths of an inch In diam
eter, inserted In the top of a pencil?
case. Its litllo dial Indicated no!
only hours, minutes, and seconds
but also days of tho month It is a
relic of tho old times when watches
were inserted in saddles, fsnuflj
bores, shirt-studs, breast-pins
bracelets, and;, finger-rings.' 'Many
were fantastic oval, octanngular
cruciform, or in the shape of pearst
melons, tulips or coffins.
