AX ACCOUNT OF TIIE RECENT VISIT AS
CONTniBUTED TO "LIFE."
Thero have been satires on Watter
son's account of his visit to Tilden and
of the robust health of the Sag of
Cipher Alley; but tho following from
"Life" is the best 'of them nil:
Greystoxe, N. Y., Juno 25, 1883.
To the Editor of the "Life:"
Mr. Tilden invited me to visit him
a week ago to consult with me about a
bullfrog nursery, which he conVm
plates adding to Bis farm. Next to
Stephen Dorsey and myself, I do not
believe the country has produced a
more zea'ous or enthusiastic farmer
than is my life long friend, whom I
found awaiting mo at the station. I
had been led to expect that I would
find him decrepid, palsied, tottering
and feeble minded. Judge of my
agreeable surprise when I saw him
his cheeks rosy as a "girl's, his eye clear,
bright and quick, his mucles firm,
elastic and knotted, his form erect and
his mind sinewy and active as that of
a cat on a hot stove. lie grasped ray
hand and the squeeze was actually
painful. To say that I was amased
would do my feelings but scant justice.
I do not think, however, that Mr.
Tilden has any political intentions.
It is two miles from the station to
Greystone. The day was hot, and I
hailed the presence of a hack at the
station with delight. Mr. Tilden,
however, refused to ride, and actually
ran before the horses the entire dis
tance, leaping fences and throwing
somersaults over bushes with boyish
abandon which delighted me. This
shows how far removed from any
political aspiration he is.
At Greystone a breakfast was served.
I am careful in my diet, and partook
sparingly of one or two dozen hard
boiled eggs and mince pie, but Mr. Til
ien deelated his appetite was equal to
anything; and ato enormously-of every
dish from crabapple jully to fried crow,
of which latter delicacy ho is very
fond. I am convinced ho takes no
interest in the coming campaign.
After breakfast I naturally desired
to rest, but Mr. Tilden, with a silvery
light hearted laugh, graped up a pair
of 250-pound dumbbells and ran
merrily np seventeen flights of stairs
to the cupola, from which eminence ho
chuckled at my uncomfortable efforts
to ascend. This convinces me he would
never accept the nomination if it were
The cupola, I found was Mr. Til
den's private gymnasium. If his tre
menlous vital energy finds no other
outlet, it tends itself on Indian club,
oozes out on the flying trapeze and
bubbles over on the horizontal bar.
Stripping to the waist he playfully
called my attention to his biceps. It
measured thirty nine inches. He
picked up a 10001b weight and trifled
with it as easily as a boy with a base
ball. Pitching ic to the ceiling in a
graceful curve, he caught it nimbly
on the hack of his neck, and then went
through all tho tricks common to
cannon ball tossers. He assured me
that he was out of politics altogether.
At this moment a liveried servant
brought up a card. It read: "John L.
"Ahl one of my dearest friends.
Shov him up," said Mr. Tilden, a rare
twinkle agitating his left eye. Mr.
Sullivan entered, and immediately
stiipped for a friendly contest with the
sage. Tho servant and I provided our
selves with sponges and fans, and then
called "time." With a movement 50
quick that no eye could follow it, Mr.
Tilden's lt-ft duke shot out, caught Mr
Sullivan on the brisket and sent him
whirling to the extreme end of the
room, where the well-trained servant
immediately threw up the sponge.
Medical attendance was then summoned
and in a few hours Mr. Sullivan re
gained consciousness nnd was pro
noured out of immediate danger.
Meanwhile Mr. Tilden convinced me
that he had no intention whatever of
allowing his name to be usejl in the
I now descended to the lawn by the
staircase, while Mr. Tilden slid down
the lightning rod and leaped lightly
over tho patling to join me. For sev
eral minutes he stood gazing south
ward, as in pleasant contemplation.
I asked him what he was looking at.
Just then I beard a terrific bellow, and
turning saw a large Durham bull paw
ing the earth not 10 'yards away,
maddmed by the sight of my inflamed
bandana, which I had left incautiously
hanging out of my coat-tail pocket.
I called Mr. Tilden's attention. The
great man only smiled. "The bull is
not afraid of us," he said, winking at
me seventeen consecutive times, in his
"I know he isn't," said I: "but don't
yoa think he'd be more comfortable if
we were en the other sido of that
Mr. Tilden laughed merri'y.
"We hae been on the other side of
the fence tocCoften," said he. T
I admitted the fact but begged him
for the sake of old timej just to try it
once more for luck.
Meanwhile the bull was foaming at
the mouth and carrying on with shame
"I shall not, sir,-' said Mr. Tilden
with a dry smile, chewing a straw
which he had plucked from my Macki
naw. "Nothing can move me, once I
make up my mind."
"But suppose," I suggested, "the
bull makes up his."
"That is tho bull's lookout," he re
plied, a slightly incredulous expression
stealing into his off eye.
Just Jthen the bull gave a terrific
roar, and I spied a lovely rose on tho
other side of tho fence, which I desired
to get. I moved in the direction of
the rose and he moved in mine. The
fence being somewhat high, the bull
courteously assisted mo over and I
secured the rose ns I came down. 1
am certain that Mr. Tilden could not
be urged into public life again.
When I recovered my consciousness
Mr. Tilden waved me a courtly so
lution, and then, seeing I was some
what averse to annoying the bull by
evading his pasture again, ho caught
up that angsred pet, twirled h'tn lightly
by the tail and swung him over thj
Hudson into New Jersey. I was then
certain that no thought of public
honors ever crossed his mind.
When I again clambertd over the
fence Mr. Tilden was gazing southward
as before. I strained my sight, but
could see nothing but tho tame Yunkers
"What are you looking at?" said I.
"Can't you see ill" said he.
"Blessed if I can," said I.
The well trained servant brought
me a powerful telescope.
"Now," said Mr. Tilden.
Again I strained my eyes. The glass
was very strong, but evidently not tin
equal of Mr. Tilden's eagle gaze.
"Weill" said he, smiling grimly as
"What is it?'' said I, trying again.
"My chance in '84," said he, quietly.
On Thursday, the 28ih ult, J. D.
Scott, the ferryman nt Carter's ferry
on Snake river, and a German named
Benson, crossed over from the Oregon
to the Idaho side in a small boat.
While thero they became intoxicated,
and in crossing hack about 0 o'clock in
the evening the boat capsized, and
both men were drowned. One of the
men was heard to remark to the other,
just before starting back, "Well if we
have to drown we may as well die
game. Lets take another drink."
They took the drink and nothing more
has been heard of them. Benson
leaves a largo f.imily. Scott was a
single man. The bodies wero not re
Mr. Wutteiscn, editor of the Liuis
ville "Courier-Journal," in his address
at a southern college commencement
recently, said: "To-day no southern
man of character and responsibility
would send or accept a challenge. Ho
would shrink not so much from the
encounter ns from the disgrace, and
less from tho disgrace than from tho
contempt which has fallen upon the
belligerent correspondence, the most
heroic settlement on paper, and tho
reciprocal publication of mutually sat
isfied honor." It is gratifying, indeed,
that southern men of character have
begun to realize all this.
When a young man says his girl is
"worth her weight in gold," he is not
putting a very high valuation upon her,
unless she is a very heavy girl. At
this rating 120 pounds of girl would
be worth about ?30,000, and any
young man who doesn't think his best
girl worth more than S30,000ought
to be kicked clear over the front gate
by an infuriated parent and have the
dog set after him.

TIIE SOLDIER'S DIDLE, ALMANAC AND
COMMON PRAYER BOOK.
A private soldier by tho name of
Richard Lee was taken before tho
magistrate of Glasgow, Scotland, fop
plajing cards during divine service.
The account of it is thus given in an
English journal. A sergeant com
manded the soldiers at the church and
when the parson had read the prayer
ho took the text Those who had
bibles took them out; but this soldier
bad neither biljle nor common prayer
book, and, pulling out a pack of cards,
he spread tbein beforo him. lie first
looked at ne card then another. Tho
sergeant of tho company saw him and
"Richard, put up the cards; this ia
no place for them."
"Never mind tint," said Richard.
When the service was over tho
constable took Richard prisoner aud
brought him beforo the mayor.
"Well," said the mayor, "what havo
you brought the soldier here foil"
"For playing caids in church."
"Well, soldier, what havo you to say
"Much, sir, I hope."
"Very good; if not, I will punish
"I havo been," said the soldier,
"about six weeks on the inarch. I
have neither Biblo nor common prayer
book. I havo nothing but a pack of
cards, and I hopo to satisfy your
worship of ihe purity of my intention."
Then spreading the cards beforo the
mayor, ho began with the ace. "When
I seo the ace it reminds me that there
is but one God. When I seo tha
deuce, it reminds me of the Fa'.her
and Son. When I see tho tray, it re
minds m of the Father Sou and Holy
Ghost. When I see the four, it re
minds me of the four evangelists that
preached, Matthew, Mark, Luke and
John. When I seo the five it reminds
me of tho wiso virgins thut trimmed
their lamps; thero wore ten, five wera
wise, and five wero foolish and wsra
shutout. When I seo the six it re.
minds me that in six days the Lord
made the heaven and earth. When I
see the seven it reminds me of the
great work ho had made and hallowed
it When I see the eight it reminds
mo of the eight righteous persons who
were saved when God destroyed the
wotld, viz; Noah and his wife, threo
sons and their wives. When I seo the
nino it reminds mo of the nine lepers
that were cleansed by our Saviour.
Theri were nine out of ten that never
returned thanks. When I see the ten
it reminds mo of the ten command
meuts which God handed down to
Moses on tho tablets ot stono. When
I seo the king, it reminds me of thtt
Great King of heaven, which is God
Almighty. When I see tho queen, it
reminds 1110 of tho queen of Sheba, who
visited Solomon, for she was as wise a
woman as ho was a man. She brought
with her fifty boys and fifty girls all
dressed in boys' apparel, for king So'o
mon to tell which wero boys and which
were girls. Tho king sent for water
for them to wash. Tho girls washed
to the elbows, the boys to the wrists,
so king Solomon told by that."
"Well," said the mayor, "you havo
described every card ill the pack sxcept
"What is that!"
"The knave" said the mayor.
"1 will givo your honor a description
of that too if you will not get angry."
"I will not," said tho mayor, "if yon
do not term me to be the knave."
"The greatest knave I know of is
the constable that brought me here."
"I do not know," said the mayor,
"if he is the greatest knave, but I
know he is the greatest fool."
"When I. count how many spo(3
there are in a pack of cards I find 3G5
as many days as there are in a year,
"When I count the number of cards
in a pack I find 52 the numbtrof
weeks in a year. I find there are 13
picturo cards in a pack, representing
the number of months in a year, and
on .counting the tricks I find 13 tha
number of weeks in a quarter. So
you see a pack of cards serves for 9.
