Old Draff.
Some said be was a miner with bar
reU of money hid away ; others that
lie hailn t a ceLt wherewith to bless
himself ; ami ftilJ others, of more ro
inafitiu ttirnj voted him a hermit; but
the Mini total ot absolute knowledge
touching Old Drff was lliHt ho was
odd, old and ugly wore seedy gar.
meiits, and lived in a seedy looking
collate on a high bluff overlooking
the ijyer.
To thoughtless boys, of the ulass
ready to torment anything helpless,
from worn out horse to nn orphan
kitten, Old Draff offered especial at-
traelion. I hey wimld hoot and jeer
nt him on the street ; inquire the ad-
Iress ot Ins tailor ; ami mock Mm in
so many ways that it was plain' they
bad no tear ol she bvars betoru llieir
eyes.
One day Ilarrvl in ner, and several
other urchins alike sportively inclin
ed, hit ii ion a new plan one, at least,
winch they hadn I tried before ol
having a little fun out ot Old Draft.
It was to tie a rope across the path
along which he was accustomed l
take his evening walk, and from a
convenient hiding place, watch dim
tumble over on his nose.
Il wasn't the fault, ol course, of
Ilairvaud hUliieuds that the path
ran along the edge ot the bluff, or
Ilia. Old Draff, as he came hobbling
on the dusk, instead ot coins over
on his nose, stumbled sideways, and
toppled over the bank mto twenty
(eel of water at which result the
Iriglitened younslers took to their
In els, leaving Old Draff to sink or
swim on bis own responsibility.
It was a lucky thing for Old Uratt
lhat Charley Thorpe chanced to be
passing that way. Charley had wore
than once interlered to protect Old
Dratl ; and lie and Harry lurner, on
one occasion, had nearly como 10
blows on the subject.
Charley's quick eye took iu the
situation at a glance, lliongn only
thirteen lw was strong and active,
and besides, a good swimmer. With
out wailing to take oft his jacket, he
sprang into the water, and as he rose
caught 014 Draft' by the collar, man
aging with great difficulty to keep
his head above the surface till Dick
Sqnidd, t!ie fisherman, who heard
their struggles, reached them with
his boat and dragged them in.
Old Draff thanked Charley warmly,
but didn't offer to reward him for his
recent set vices.
"I suppose you think the old mi
ser'll n nu mber ym in his will," said
Hurry Turner, tauntingly, the first
time he and Harry met.
The laugh tha'l followed nettled
Charley.
"I care very little for the sneers ol
cowards," he answered, with forced
calmness.
'Cowards ! who do you call cow
ards ?" blustered Uairy Turner, who
wms u year older, and hall a head tall
er than Charley. .
"All who are mean enough to in
sult or inj ne a helpless old man,"
tetorleil Lharley, bristling op.
"Do you mean lhat for mo?"
"For you especially."
A smart slap in the face was liar
ry's answer to Charley ; but the next
moment a blow of the litter's fist
sent the other sprawling to ilu
.'round. Iwieo the operation wrn-
repeated, and then Harry Turner
slunk away vanquished.
It was not long till Charley found
his victory productive of bitter fruits.
Mr. Turner, Harry's father, was chief
man of the establishment in which
Charley Thorpe was employed. He
held lofty notions ot the Turner dig
nity. A blow, from a plebeian hand,
inflicted on a scion ot tin; houe, he
looked upon as aimed at the founda
tions of society an offense not to be
overlooked ; and in the absence of
power to impose severer punishment,
lie procured Charley's dismissal from
employment.
Nor did Mr. Turner's displeasure
end here. He was Charley's mother's
landlord. Mrs, Ihorpe was a widow,
lell with five children, of whom Char
ley alone was old enough to nftord
Iter any aid. When his wages stop
ped she tell behind in the rent, and
Mr. Turner gave her notice to quit.
It was a sad night when, after the
little ones were asleep, Charley and
his mother sat up discussing what
they should do on the morrow, for
ihen they must, find a new abode.
Eviry proprietor to whom ihey
had applied demanded security, and
they had done to offer. Had Old
Draft" been still a'ive. Charley, for
his mother and the children's sake,
induced by the stories of Lis barrels
of money, might hve been tempted
to ask for a small Joan ; .but Old
Draff had died a few weeks before.
snd the money and effects found on
his premises had barely sufficed to
bury him. H seemed that after all
be wis no miser but only poor.
G1 will help us!" said the wid
ow. when she and CharUy Lad dis
missed, as impracticable, one scheme
after another.
The door bell rang, sivl Cbsrleyi
went to snswer il.
"Doeo Mrs. Thorpe livo here?" in
quiied the gentleman whom ho found
09 the sli ps.
"Yes, sir."
'Has she u son named Charles ?"
"Yes, sir; I'm Charley Tlu rpe."
"Wi ll, my little man, I wish a few
words with you and your mother."
Charley led the way and the
stranger entered,
"I am the bearer of important news,"
he began, taking lliu chair the wid
cu offered. "'Among the papers
ofj my late law partner, whoso death
occurred the day belore that ot .Mr.
Draff, I have juU discovered the tat
ter's will."
"But it is said he left nothing," re
plied the widow, listlessly.
"He left the largest fortune in the
country, the other answered live
hundred thousand dollars, all in molt
ey in the batik."
"And wh is the heir?"
"Your son !" The Interior.
Fait Against Falsehood.
The Radical progtammo for the
campaign of 1878, says-the S. F. Ex
aminer, as eleaily foreshadowed by
recent events. Mcludc a vigorous tin!
sustained effort to revive sectional an
imosities, to re kindle throughout lite
North lite dying embers ot hate tow
ards the people of the Southern Slutes.
As one means of accomplishing this
malignant purpose, the ltadtcal press
and politicians arc already beginning,
with much energy, to circulate iu a
thousand forms the old charge of hos
tility on the part of the Southern peo
ple to Union soldiers and freedmeti.
It the northern mind cat) be convinced
lhat the men who wore the bl.ie dur
ing ibe war of the rebellion, and the
race to whom the issue of that war
gave freedom, are objects of Southern
hatred, malice ami persecution, it is
hoped by liadical leaders that the re
sult will be a gain ot Congressmen in
close districts.
The Washington Post proposes in
this connection, to submit a few facts
lhat should have more influence with
intelligent peoile than any amount of
rhetorical flourish or denunciatory
emphasis. Two miles from Fortress
Monroe, wilhin 200 yards of Hunp
lon Uomis, and just across a narrow
creek from the town ot Hampton,
stands a large nnd handsome biick
building, in which for many years
prior to 18G1 was a fashionable board
ing school, where the daughters of
wealthy Virginians were educated.
After the war the building, will) its
splendid grounds, was purchased by
General Ilutler, mid by him t ran def
ied to the United Slates to be con
verted into a home tor disabled Union
soldiers. It is and has long been lite
Southern branch ot the National Sol
diers' Home. Six hundred disabled
Union soldiers reside there, clote to a
large population .ot ex-Contuderales;
and ihe point we. wish to make is lhat
the utmost harmony and good lie ling
exist between these Union veterans
and their "rebel" neighbors. Indeed,
I he Home is the favorito resort ol
Southern people foi rhany miles
around. The ex-Contederates have
no "Home" for their maimed' veterans,
and no penion agency sends them a
Treasury draft. They know thai
these things are a p ut of the penally
of their defeat in the great struggle;
but, so far Iron) showing envv and
malice towards the victors, they are
glad to have them located in their
.nidsl. Officers and inmates of the
Southern branch say lhat the relations
between them and the peop'e aronnl
them are and always have been mwl
amicable. A tew hundred yards from
ihe home stands a number ot costly
and elegant buildings orected since.,
the war, the finest school builidiigs in
Virginia. They ore not, as the reader
may imagine, a substitute, foi the
boarding school that was turned into
a Soldier' Home. There was no
money among tho impoverished peo
pie ot that section for the erection ol
such structures. They are the Damp
ton Institute where colored youth of
boih sexes aro educated by a corps of
prolessors and teachers. Now, if the
Southern people were full of hatred
toward the negro, one would think
there was a.chanzc to show il. Their
own fashionable seminary, nn asylum
lor "Yankee" soldiers, and childrcifol
their former slaves being educated at
a finer establishment than they ever
owned, are circumstances that, it might
be suppesed, would evoke some ol
that hatred. Hut the facts show that
between the school and the "rebel"
population ti.ere is entire ainit y. The
Port .puts these briefly Mated truths
before the country as an antidote to
many columns of Kadieal falsehood
gotten up to fire the Northern' heart.
Judge Key repeats the foolish
charge that the Noithern Democracy
led the South into secession. The
Nashville American avers thit a more
groundless and absurd charge was
never made, nor is there a man in the
S"uth wili degrade himself by the as
i uvu uv wai. ic.j tn ui i en, ca
joled or persuaded. The South fought
tmcaose the bad to figbt.
Punds Furnished by His Swrtlhrart.
0e of the eases called at the (as-
gow Circuit Court, the otlur day,
was that of Richard Berris Scott,
who was charged with embezzlement.
Scott had been for a number ot years
head clerk in the ollice of a firm of
city brokers, and was well known on
Change. Ihe cutest of speculators,
however, sometimes miss the market,
and to meet "ddterences ' it was al
leged lhat Scott had up Jropriaied his
employers' money to the extent ol
over $30,000. Altei undergoing the
usual preiimiiMiiy examinations he
wat committed for trial no charge ol
hiving stolen or embezzled npwird
of $'J0,000. Scott lay in iatl until
lite iiidtcMiienl for tr al at lite then
forthcoming Circuit Conrl was served,
when application tor the fixing ot bail
was made by one who evinced a par
ticular interest iu lite accused. The
SlieritJ named $5,100 as the amount
of bail, and the Advocate, having
iiu'iccd lo iii-eepi litis sunt, $4,01)0 in
Oish was 'olged by a young lady,
nil I two city gci'ilk-nleti liecuiui' se
curiiy lor the balance. Scoil was
accordingly liberated. Next day he
was again before the bherill ; (his
time, however, under somewhat dif
iiereitt auspices. Instead ol being iu
charge ol an oihccr,liu was accompau
led by the young llidy who hadptevi
ously been conspicuous in her exer
tions in his behalf. The Register for
llt.i pati-h had ul ready been consult
ed, and ihe Sheriff li'iviu toked itj
tho interesting pair were willing to
lake each other lor belter or worse,
or something in lhat strain, signed
the register, ami the couple, with
their one or two Irteuds, K-It. but a
lew days elapsed when Scott and his
newly made wile bid adieu lo their
relatives, look steamer, anil sailed
lor foreign shores. On tho case be
ing called on .Monday, Scott, of
course, did not appear, lite bail was
declared forfeited, and seiitenco ot
outlawry pronounced. Tho Exche
quer will thus bo richer by $5,0()0,and
America has one more lelugce-in in
jusuoj to look r.lter.
why Mcc Wasn't In.
"Is Mr. McKee iu ?" Tho gentle
man who asked the question was a
mild itiAunered individual and reem
bled a clergyman in appearance. Mr.
Tuseh. of whom the question .was
asked, replied in the negitive.
"Will ho be in soon?"
"I think not," answered Mr. Tusch
"I have not seen htm lor some
lime, and I am afraid I would not
know him," said the man.
"lle"'s no doubt changed a great
deal since you saw him last," return
ed the iiionosy ib'o Tusch.
"Do yoil know where I would te
likely lo find him ?" asked the visi
tor. "II did not say where' he was go
ing." "Is there any place that ho fie
que ma ?"
"Ho is no doubt in one of two places,
but they're a good ways from here
and ho probably would not like to be
disturbed."
Ciiii I sit and wait ?" asked the
geiitlcrnuu.
"Oh, certainly 1 John give the
ceutlemaii a chair."
Iho gentleman waited lor two
hours and then became uneasy; final
ly he said :
"Is theio any possibility ot ins be
ing in lo day ?"
-No, I think not."
'How long since ho went off?"
"Six month)',"'
"How's that!'
' II-'s dead." ,
."Why the devil'didn't you sa so?"
"You did n't ask me."
Then the gentleman pulled out two
quarts of hair, kicked ofer a table,
and fired two dams al lusch. John
fell off the ollice slool, struck Hie
floor with his school end, nod made a
de".t tin shape oil wo butter cracker
in the floor, and Mr. Tuseh, remark
ing that "some people .didn't know
enough to ask for what they wanted,"
went into executive ecsrioii mill l In
nan.
The fences in Hie United Slates
tre estimated to havecot $1,200,000,
000, or more than halt the naiioii.i.
debt, and lobe worth iwo-i birds liuit
enormous sum, or $SOO,000,000. Tin
yearly expense to keep them in good
order and cattlcprooi is about $100,
000,000, or $2.50 to every man, wo
man and child white, black and red
-in the country, This is the result
of tho unjust system of b-nceing
every man's stock out, instead ol
compelling every man who owns
slock to keep it fenced in, so il can
not trespass on any ot hU neighbors.
Every owner of cattle should care for
them himself, instead ot compelling
hit neighbor, who probably owns
juino, lo do so. This is the law is
all European civilized regions, anil
alao in Kansas, Colorada and Nebras
ka. If you want job orintinst done, call

Tho old man was oiling the hinges
of the stove door and carelessly sing
ing one ot Beethoven' best, when a
middle aged woman entered the sta
tion and began:
"Mr. Joy, are you a good man?"
"Wall, tolerable tolerable," he re
plied, "I never dropped a bad nickel
into the street car box, and I don't go
fishing on Sunday."
"Mr. Joy,I am cauvassing for money
to buy H:bles,aud so forth, for the
African heathen," she continued as
she showed a pass book.
"Are, eh? Does he seem to want
Bible?"
"He does. Ho sits on tho rands ot
-his native shoro and lioks longingly
this way.
"Does, eh? Sitting right there this
morning, 'sp se?"
''lie is. How much will you sttb
soi ibe, Mr. Joy?"
".Mad im, I've got to litt a mortgage
before noon to-day, nnd "
'Tut down what your nuble heart
dictates," she said as she bunded Mm
lift book.
He reflected for a moment and then
asked:
'Will $5 convert a heathen a great
hi? I wo listed heathen with a stiff
ktiee?"
"I-I think so "
He figured will) a pencil on the
bottom ot a chair and said:
"Fivo dollars into two hundred
