True Story of Congressman
! Washington Letter.
ackey, an undo of the Into
Congressman Mackey, of South Caro
lina, denies tbe story of tho latter's
marriage to an octoroon, lie says:
Ihe facts are these: a ears ago
young Col. Sumter, of South Carolina,
a scion of tho famous revolutionary
family, fell deeply in love with a hand
some woman, whose position socially
was below his owu. fie was anxious
and willing to make her his wife, but
he know that his proud old father would
cut him off with a shilling the moment
such an alliance was known. Accord
ingly, for prudential reasons, the bride
consented, for a time, to keep the mar
riage a secret. The only child born to
them was a girl. The colonel died sud
denly before the secret had been re
vealed, and was shortly folio wod to the
grave by his broken-hearted wifo. The
chilil, a mere infant then, was
confided by the mother to the
care of a faithful old octoroon
nurse, who proved to be tiie tra
ditional southern 'mammy' to her
charge She lost no time in trying to
carry out the mother's request by prov
ing the property rights of the child.
The marriage certilicate ha.l, unfortu
nately, been lost, aud nothing remained
but the colonel's letters to his wife
to prove tho legal relationship
and the child's f,itimate title. The
Sumter family were not satisfied with
this, but the grandfather relented far
enough to provide modestly for the
child, taking care, however, to leave her
in charge of the nurse aud make no
mention of her in his will. It would
not have mattered much, though, for
the estate w.is completely wrecked by
the war. You see, therefore, that tho
child passed her infancy and girlhood
among her colored protectors.
Naturally, she was snpp sh! to belong
to them. He became interested in
her history, undertook the task of her
education, and wheu that was over, and
her character had developed into charm
ing womanhood, he made hor his wife,
There's not a drop of colored blood in
her veins, and it is the refinement of
cruelty to revive that old rumor ov,ir
his grave. Tlioro is no possible trrcran.1
for doubt on the subject when the race
signs can be infallibly detected. The
moment I saw her first with her flaxen
hair, deep blue eyes, and clear cat
Caucasian features, I was satisfied of
the purity of her blood, but there will
at times be the same baffling race
tokens in octoroons and even secta
roons. One Bign, however, never fails.
In the negro, even to the sixteeuth ad
mixture, you find a purple instead of a
white crescent at the base of the finger
nails. The crescent was white.
"Through long generations," con
tinued the judgo, "this race admixture
becomes rather perplexing at times,
I remember a curious circumstance that
happened dur ng one of my judgeship
campaigns. I don't believe much in
elevating negrojs to otlice Republican
though I am and was alluding, by way
of pleasantry and without a thought
of any personal application, to the po
litical ambition of men with p trple
nails. My antagonist, whosa bl oJ I
never dreamed of calling iu question,
took this as a personal affront, to my
great surprise, But I learned, on con
sulting with an oi l gosip, that he was
actually a descendant of the poet Tim
rod, who, although the most gifted
poet our state ever produced, and re
ceived into the first social relatio.is, was
well known to be an octoroon."

Herr Lasker, however, found two
things to deprecate in the United
States. In the first place, he dopre-
oated the prodigal waste of the forests
ith which this continent is so prodi
gally endowed. He pointed out the
fact that, while naturally we are so far
superior to Germany in this regard,
the older country was far more en
lightened in its policy as to forests.
There the peoplo and government were
at the utmost pains to conserve ana to
reolace the occasionally denuded parks.
While there tne granu, primeval irees
were not encountered in anything like
the prodigious stretches characteristic
of the United States, thore was the
most persevering replacement of every
tree which was compulsorily sacritied
. . . . . . . 1 1 A
for fuel or other purposes. He sug
gested that, while necessity would nlti
matolv comnol ns to adopt the Europ
ean nlau in this matter, it would be
wiso to anticipate the iron exigency of
the future, thus saving us much posi
tive damage and vexation on the pnu
ciple that an ounce of prevention is
worth a pound of cure.
The second regard in which Herr
Lasker found the United States vastly
inferior to Europe was in our roads. In
the Old World, however great the sac
rifice and inconvenience in despotio
forms of government, the people had
snlendid highways and byways. The
initiative set by the old Roman repub
lio and the old Roman empire of per
fect roadways, culverts and sidewalks
was religiously adhered to by uer
many and other nations of Europe. He
thought that in this respoct, as iu the
other, we might well borrow a lesson
from the effete monarchies of the Old

the head of a turtle will retain a very
marked interest in existence long after
its body has been served up iu soup
and steaks. I believe it is a well
known fact, but I only discovered it
six months ago. I found a friend en
gaged in shelling a small turtle. 'Mow,'
lie said, putting tho head on the dresser,
'that will be alive and active to-morrow
morning.' Of course I laughed at him,
but 1 a, 'rood to call next day and test
his prophecy. Next morning my friend
asked me to step into the kitchen. The
head was still on the dresser, and
though it had been separated from the
body for at least sixteen hours, the
eyes were wide open and bright, 'fake
care,' exclaimed my friend, as I put my
finger near its mouth.
"His warning came not a second too
soon. The head of that turtle abso
lutely jumped at me. Whore its nw
tive power came from I cannot ex
plain, but it moved two inches toward
me, and snapped at my finger with a
viciousnoss that could not liave been
surpassed by a cornered rat. I think
it had been holding back its life, as
men with strong will power for fixed
purposes have been known to do, until
an opportunity ollered to avengo tho
t struction of its body, for after it had
made the effort its eyes grew fixed and
filmy, and in an hour it was dead. Noxt
to the turtle in obstinate persistence in
living must come the eel. In recogni
ing the extraordinary longth of time
through w hich an eel clings to its being
under the most unfavorable circum
stances people, I think, overlook th
most unfavorable condition of all the
removal of it from the water, a state of
affairs sulliciont in itself to produce
"I do not boliove that cutting an eel's
head off or serving his tail the saino
way shortens his life much. He dies
becauso ho is out of his element, und
had he boon left unmutilated he would
have lived but little longer. Of c.mrso,
if you put him in sections on tho frying-pan
yon place upon him a burden
greater than he can bear, and he dies
quickly; but the lesser injuries, affect
ing only the tail, hoad or skin, seem to
me to make but little impression. The
fact is, un eel can live an extraordinarily
long time out of water. They habitu
ally leave it of their own accord and
wander in the tiolds that slope down to
a creek not far from here. I have often
met in the e.irly morning eels making
their way down to the creek. They
had spent the night in the meadows in
search of worms and wore going back.
" Whether an eel or any other hsh is
capable of feeling acute pain I cannot
say. This I can vouch for : Whon an
eel has been skinned and beheaded, and
seems to be quite dead, a little salt
rubbed on the surface of the body w,ll
be apt to restore life very quickly. A
snake dies quickly nndor injuries, ine
average snake will not live three min
utes alter his head is crushed with a
stick. The eye of a wild bird remains
bright for some time after you have shot
