" Piute Mary " is about fifty years
ot age, four nnd a half feet in perpen
dicular bight, and some five feel in
eqatorial diameter. This mountain
of aboriginal flesh is iudustrious, and
goes on regular rounds through the
city for the purpose of scrubbing
kitchen floors and doing other rough
work no kind ot work is too hard
for her, provided it will put money in
her purse. Although such a drudge,
Mary is not ignorant ot tho more
fashionable accomplishments in yogutJ
amooK the belles of her tribe; she is
well up in Piute poker, and can play
her band and cheat with tho best ot
A day or two since Mary came to
the house ot a lady patron on her reg
ular scrubbing day in a condition of
wide-spread dilapidation. Her ap
pearance suggested that it. the place
whence she camo there had been a
largo amount of carnage. One eye
was nearly closed; ber iioss was swol
len; her face was scratched and bleed
ing, and her hair stood six davs for
Sunday. Mary came in sight crying,
and cried and blew her nose and
sobbed and moaned all the time she
was scrubbing.
As site moaned nnd scrubbed and
groaned she explained that she had
been in i big poker game, which end
ed m her having a fight will) a squaw
had known from infancy her
best friend. Although this bosom
friend had given her a fearful drub
bing, Mary brought sway from the
field of battle the spoil she had won
through ber superior knowledge of
the tricks of poker.
"Boo, hoo, boo! me git urn all this,"
said she, untying a hundkercbiet and
counting out thirty-six halt uolla
"Hut you also received a very bad
whipping, said her patron.
"Jioo, hoo, boo 1 mo git unr this,"
and Mary pulled from the pooket of
her torn calico dress a wad ot about
four ouuees of hair.
"That might be good Mary, had
not the woman been your best lricnd
'Oh ! yash, my flend my good
fiend I cried Mary, and boo hooed
more lustily than before.
Crying all the time as though her
heart would break the mountain of
feeling, lied the coin up in the hand
kerchief, placed it on a table and re
sumed her mopping, shaking with
grief like a bowl of jelly.
Mary cried right along until her
work was done; cried when she re
ceived ber usual half dollar, in pay
ment thertlor, and departed crying
as loudly and earnestly as when she
came in sigbt.
The next day, much to the surprise
of all about the house, Mary made
her appearance when not due a
thing very unusual with her. She
was -still crying evenly along, but
less noiselessly than he lore. Instead
of coming into the kitchen she went
and squatted doggedly down in tht
wood shed.
"Mary," said the lady of the house,
speaking quite sternly, "yua cheated
your friend out of that money I You
are a bad girl to play poker and cheat
and fight. I am ashamed of you I If
you don't leave off playing poker and
hgbting 1 11 get another woman to
work for me."
"Boo, hoo, hoo I" howled Mary,
with a fresh burst of vigor, and,
gathering herself up, she rolled out
of the wood house and rolled away,
mountain of sensitiveness, but in her
hand she still held the handkerchief
ot half dollars.
Next day Mary -tcrain made her
appearance, one "came up smiling.
She had combed her hair, patched
her dress, washed her face, and was
quite her old self.
"Why, Mary, what has happened ?"
cried the lady. "You look hippy
again. Did you give the money back
to your friend ?" '
"Yash, me no gie em back; one
other woman clean me out-me no
more money. Now me no more play
oard ; now me no more pite (fight) ;
now me scrub your housee all time;
now me one dam good girl, you
bet !"
"Am I to Blame?" "Am I to
blame, Mother ?" asked a young lad
the other day, who bad joined a tern
perance society. His father and
mother appeared to be displeased
with him. After a long silence,
the boy broke forth, "Am I to blame,
Mother ? Sister Mary bas married a
drunken husband, who abuses her
everyday; Sister Susan's husband
was intemperate, and has gone off
and left her; and you are obliged to
take ber home and care for her chil
dren. Brother James comes home
every night drnnk; and because I
have joined the cold water army, and
yon are likely to have one sober per
son in the family, you are scolding
me. Am I to blame, mother?" The
mother, overcome by the argument
of her child, "Yon are right, my boy.
May God bless you, and help yoa to
keep your good resolutions'.
One Hundred lean Ago.
One hundred years ago not a pound
of coal, not a cubic foot of illuminat
ing gas had been tin nod in this coun
try. No iron stoves were used, and
no contrivance tor economizing heat
were employed until Dr. Franklin
invented the lron iramed fire place,
which still bears Ins name. All the
cooking and warming in town and
country werodonoby the aid of tire,
kindled in tho brick oven or on the
hearth. Pine knots or tallow candles
lurnWied the light for the Ions win
ter nights, and sanded floors supplie
the place of rugs and carpets. Tho
water used for household purpose
was drawn from deep wells by tho
creaking sweep. No form of pump
was used in this country, so lar as we
can learn, until after the comincDco
ment of tho present century. There
were no friction matches in those
early days, bv the aid of which a fire
could bo easily kindled ; and it the
fire "went out upon ll)e hearth" over
night, and the timber was damp so
tut the sparks woul 1 . not. cat jh, Hie
alternative was presented of wander
ing through the snow a mile or so to
borrow a brand of a neighbor. Only
one room in any hoii-e was warm,
unless some of tho family were ill;
in all the ret the temperaturo was al
zero many nights in the winter. The
men and women ot a hundred years
ago undressed and went to their beds
in a temperature colder than that of
our modern barns and wood sheds,
and they never complained.
I Don't Advektisk. That fellow,
we have written at the top ot this
article, says an exchange, we generally
nnd in our daily rounds Heated on
barrel or counter drumming his heels
against the side, lounging on tl.e
counter halt' asleep, idling in the
doorway or playing checkers in the
back room to while the time away.
r i iiii
un, now sau no iooks when you
mention business. Sometimes he
stands up, and what a figure ! His
head looks like the busy end oi a
uew foundland pup's tail. His jaws
resemble two clapboards filled with
spikes. His neck, unwashed, looks
like a two-years old slovu-pipe, and
las legs are like unto a, nun tod in a
gunny sack. No busiuoss. No hopes.
There's no money in the country.
"My friends lave deserted mo Iain
almost discouraged." Then ho will
spur up and talk finance and tell
what he has seen in the paper he
borrowed from his neighbor until we
have hope of his sanity. But when
we say advertise, ho -loses every
vestige of manhood and is a H v i n r
skeleton again. Now, while this is
only a pen picture, it is drawn from
actual tacts as mav bo seen in this
and every other business community.
You may ask the merchantilc traveler
or the wholesale dealer, and thev
will both tell the same btory no
business with thoso firms who don't,
adveitise. On the contrary, enter
the store of him who lets the people
know of his existence and what he is
doing in tho world through the press,
and you always see a well-dressed
cheerful and successful man. Of
course he experiences the natural rise
and decline ot the business season
but you always hear him say ; "I
have no . reason to complain," or
"business is brisk." Take a peep at
tho business houses of even this small
city, and seo bow near we have come
to the truth.
Prison IIobkous. The revelations
of the Trenton prison tortures before
tho Investigating Committee of the
A ew Jersey Legislature are almost
tdo hideous for belief. One ex-keeper
testifies in an on hand way that he
saw an many as hve or six convicts
at one timo with gags in their mouth;
saw men chained down to the floor
and at the same time gagged so tight
ly that they could hardly breathe;
s iwmen bound to that modern adapta
Hon ot the rack the stretcher, their
hands fastened to the ceiling and their
toes touching the floor; saw convicts
chained to tho floor with their hand
cuffs on ; often heard scN-aming com
ing irom tno dungeon ; hau seen a
woman with black and hi no marks
on her wrists, who told him that she
had beon strung up.
If these things had been reported
from some far otFlanJof savages the
people of Trenton would have shud
dered while reading about them.
But being in Trenton, thev have here
tofore passed without notice.
riie Philadelphia Times -ay:

A Ilypoeritical Colored rhilnnlliroplst.
During tho period when the Freed
men's Bureau was a national hobbv
and too much could not be done foj
the colored people of the South, the
rreeuman s Hospital was established
in Washington, and, to make sure of
its proper management, colored men
1 1'. a . .1 T a
oi uisunciion at tno .worth were
chosen to preside over it. That was
a number of yiars ago. Also, 'of the
omgrowm oi ino same plant, vcre
the Howard University and the
ri'ecdmen s Bank at tho Capital. It
is enough to say here that the Univor
sity is a lraud, and that the victims
of tho bank, long Bince, learned that
it was a swindle. And now the
Freedmau's Hospital has 'falh-n into
tho depth ot dishonor. Dr. Purvis,
who superintends it, has proven to bo
the blackest ot Mack sheep toward
tho unfortunate of his own color,
He has beon defrauding the patients
oi ttivir rations, medicines and com
forts to enrich himself aud to main
rain Disown household in extravagant
stylo. He lives sumptuously, in
grand houso tho Government bus
provided for him, rent free. But not
content with this and his very libera
salary, no deprives the very sick and
crippled of that which ho is furnished
tor distribution to them. And ho
has compelled snch as were able to
work to toil tor his own private bene
nt and profit. This noted colored
humanitarian, who has for many
years talked and written about the
wrongs of tho colored people, now
turns out to bo the cruellest of any
in his treatment ot his own race.
STur-KNMous Impudknck. Tho most
remarkable feature of the outcry so
industriously raised in certain quarters
against the legislative action nec
essary to establish a competing trans
continental railroad, seems to have al
most escaped critical attention. The
one solitary argument urged against
present action by tho Government is,
that tho Companies owning tho
monopoly line have abusod the cifts
and privileges granted by Congress,
therefore, Uoyernment- should not
aid in the construction ot a compet
ing lino, because its buib ers may do
as the builders of tho monopoly line
have done. The remarksblo feature
comes in riuht here: This "arcru-
ment" is made by whom? Why.

Ace or Oaken Ships. The age of
good oaken English ship is about
the age of a robust man time score
years and ten with an equal chance
ot going on into years beyond. Dur
ing the years of 1875 76, there were
0.VJ hriiish vessels wrecked and
otherwiso destroyed between the ten
der years of 3 and 10 ; 1,032 between
7 and 14 years; 1,414 between 15 and
40 years; Oil between 30and 50 years;
80 between 50and C0years;4l between
00 and 70 years; 12 betwon 70 and
80 years; 12 belwen 80 and 00 years;
2 between 00 and 100 years, and 2
over 100 years. All these old ships
that bad for so many years buffeted
tho storms of all clmates were wooden
hulls, that material being superior in
lasting qualities to iron, of which tho
majority ot modern hulls are built.
The recent futal duel in Georeia
has called out in the Southern papers
reminiscences of all the famous duels
of tho last half century. As remark
able a one as any was that fought at
Bridgeport, Ky., in 1830, when Shel
ton nd Kingsbury were arrayed
against each other. Kingsbury knew
it was a joke; Shelton thought it was
real. The seconds loaded tho guns
with soft soap. Shelton won, the first
fire, banged away and dropped behind
a log. Kingsbury walked up to Shel
ton, put the muzzle of his gun near
his head and tired. Such a looking
man was never seen in Kentncky or
elsewhere ; soft soap covered his en
tire head. In mortal agony Shelton
put up his hand, got a handful cf soap
and exclaimed, "Oh, my poor brains!
my poor brains 1" Finally realizing
the hoax, he chased Kinghbury more
than five miles, firing stone and voi
le) s of profanity at him.

In a Nutshell.
The Graphic prosents some facts
in reg, rd to the eilyer in European
countries. The figures presented are
exceedingly interesting as well as
instructive, and they are commended
to the careful and prayerful attention
of the "gold bugs," whose misrepre
sentations in regard to silver in for
eign countries have been so persis
tently giyen to the publia through
tho newspapers:
Senators Lamar, Edmnnds, Morrill
and Bayard, as well as Professor
Sumner, have made some statements
concerning silyer in European coun
tries, which aro curiously inaccurate.
Instead of taking up and correcting
their errors point by point, we will
condense some facts which they ought
to commit to memory:
1. Great Britain, a mono metallic
country, bas lost S'Jj.OUU.OUU other
gold during tho last year.
2. France, which koeps gold and,
silver on equal terms, has increased
her gold stocks 79,000,0o0 during-
the last year.
3. On January 10th, 1878, lhor
i as 3'J9,100 000, coin and bullion,
in tho Bank of Franco; $22,260,000
more than the aggregate contained
in tho National Banks of England,
Germany, Austria, Belgium and the
4. Silver is not "entirely demoneti
zed" by England and Germany, or
ither of them; for Great Britain floats
not less than $80,000,000 of silver le
gal-tender, to day, and Germany has
more than (100,000,000, in silver le
gal-tender, and neither ot them caa
get rid of it, however much they try.
Silver sticks lo the fingers of the
people like tar.
5. The five frano piece is not very
e . CI 3
scarce in franco, truest ocya,
whoso testimony gold men will not
hesitate to take at par, estimated ia
1870 that there were not fewer than
$356,000,000 in five fraoo pieces in
France. No less than twenty.fonr
twenty-fifths of all the silver in France
is in five franc pieces.
G. Silver is a full legal tender in
France to any amount, and Mr. La
mar can get ten million gold dollars
at tho bonk of Franco by offering for
them ten million of those five frano
ieccs, which are worth throe cents
ess than the old American "dollar of
our daddies," which gold monopolists
tell us is worth only 92 cents.
Senator Mitchell by voting to en
rich tho bondholders and enslave the
people, who has to bear the burdens
of the government, has probably
turned over his tin bucket of sensa
tional aspirations and calculations, if
party lines are to be adjustod by
financial considerations for the future,
he, in straying himself against the
West and South and for tho money
power ot the East, has not done the
best thing possible to secure the
united strength of bis party jn Ore
gon. The Republicans oi this coast
are not more wealthy as a general
thing than Democrats and silver is as
sacred in their estimation as it is to
the Democracy. Considering this
fact it may bo presumed that not a
few of his friends may give him the
cold shoulder.
Tho Boston I'ott says: Rhode Is
land has to discuss annually the ques
tion of intermarriage of the races
with as much regularity as the legis
lators ot Maine are called upon to
talk and vote upon prohibition. The
Bill to defeat the longstanding decree
against the intermarriage ot whites
and blacks has been defeated this
year as usnal, and once more Little
Rhody arrays herself strongly against
legalized miscegenation.
The New York Evening Post con
gratulates the machine members of
the Republicnn party on their brill
iant notion that they can conduct a
successful canvass in 1880 by placing
their party organization on the foun
dation of the Louisiana Returning
Board. The attempt lo rear a politi
cal structure out of the timbers of
