BILL ARP'S LEITEU.
He Talk of the Time When Hi- F.-ther
The Difference Iietvct-u Then and m.
Two cents only 2 cents. When 1
look at a postage stomp it carries me
away back. Back to the time when
my father was postmaster and I was
his clerk, and had to make up the
mails in a country town. The differ
ence "between now and then shows
the world's progress in a privilege
that is hardly excelled in any other
branch of improvement We couldn't
bear to be set back again in that line
to the old ways that our fathers
thought were pretty good. There
were no stamps and no envelopes, and
no mucilage. The paper was folded
up like a thumb-paper, and one side
slipped in the other and sealed with
a wafer. The little schoolboys, you
know, had to use thumb-papers in
their spelling lwola to keep them
clean where their dirty thumbs kept
the pages open. Girls didn't have to
use them, for they were nicer and
kept their hands clenn, and didn't
wear out the leaves by the friolion of
BoyB aro rough things nuj how, and
I don't see what a nice, sweot, clean,
pretty girl wants with one of 'em.
Girls they say are made of sugar and
xpice and all that's nioo, and boys of
snaps and snarls and puppy dogs tails.
Josephus says, that when" the queen
of Sheba was testing Solomon's wis
dom she had fifty boya and fifty girls
all dressed alike in git-la clothes, and
seated around a big room, and asked
the king to pick out the boys from
tho girls, and ho called ior a basin of
water and hnd it carried crunnd to
each one and told then I wash their
hands. The girls all rolled up their
sleores a little bit, but the lo3 just
sloshed their hands in any way and
got water all over their snron, and
so the kingspotted every mother's son
The postage used to be roguluted
by tho distance that Uncle ?am car
ried the letters. It was 12 cents
anywhere in the state, and 13ji cents
to Charleston, and 25 cents to New
York. It was never pro paid. A inau
could afflict another with a pi-careen
letter that wasn't worth 5 cents. A
pistareen, you know, was 185 cents
that is 7 pence and a thrip. We had
no dimes or half dimes. The dollar
was cut up into eighths instead of
tenthB. When a countryman called
for letters and got one he would look
at it some time and turn it over and
meditate before he paid for it, and
very often would say: "Who did this
letter oome from?" WelL I would
say for instance, "it came from Dah
lonega don't you see Dahlonega
written xtp on tbecorner?" Then he
would say, "Well, I reokon it's from
Dick, my brother Diok. He js up
there digging gold. Don't yoiTreck
on it's from Dick?" "I reckon it is,"
said L "Why don't you open it and
see?" "No Til -wait until I get home.
They'll all want to see it" When ho
got home the letter would bo an event
in the family, and perhaps it would
take a half an hour to wade through
it and make out its contents.
Nine out of ten of those country
letters began, "I take my pen in hand
to let you know that I am well, and
hope these few lines will find you en
joying the same blessing." My father
kept store and his country customers
used to ask him to write their letters
for thejn, and he alwas sent them to
me, and most of them told me to be
gin their letters that way. There was
not more than one in five could write,
but they were good, clever, honest
people, and paid their debts, but they
hardly ever paid up in full at the end
of the year, and so they gave their
notes for the balance and made their
mark.. My father used to say that he
had known cases where a man swore
off his written signature, but he never
knew a man to deny his mark.
Our big northern mail used to coino
in a stage from Madison twice a week,
and I used to think the sound of the
stage horse as the stage came over tho
hill was one of the subiiniest things
in the -world, and I thought that if 1
ever got to be a man I would be a
tsge drrrer if I could. Well, I conio
pretty near it. for my father had hirod
a man to ride the mail to Boswell and
back twice a week, and the in n got
sick and so my father put me on a
drumedary of a horse and the mail iu
some saddle-bags behind me, and I
had to make the forty-eight miles in
a day and kept it up all winter. I
liked to have froze Several times, and
had to be lifted off the horse when I
got home, and it nearly broke my
mother's heart, but I was gotting a
dollar a trip and it was my money,
and so I wouldn't back out ' The old
women on the trip used to crowd me
with their little'oommissions and get
me to bring them a little pepper, or
copparas, or bluing, or pins and
needles, or get me to take along socles
and sell them, and so I made friends
and acquaintances all the way. The
first trip I made an old woman hailed
me and said, "Are you a mail boy?"
"Why, ye3, mam," said I, 'you didn't
think I was a female boy, did you?"
I thought that was mighty smart, but
it wasn't very civil and it made her so
aad she never told me what she
wanted, and as she turned her back
en me I heard her say, 'Til bet ho is
a little stuck up town boy."
My father was postmaster for
nearly thirty years. It didn't pay
more than about $209 a year, but it
made his store more of a public place.
He didn't know that anybody else
hankered after it or was trying "to get
it, but all of a sudden he gt his
orders to turn the office over to an
other man an old lino Whig and a
competitor in business. It mortified
him very much and made us all mad,
for there was no fault found with his
management, and he never took much
interest in politics, but voted for the
man he liked tho best "whether ho was
a Whig or a Democrat When he
found out that AIek Stephens had it
done he wasn't a Stephens man any
more, and I grew up with an idea
that Mr. Stephens was a political
fraud. I didn't understand the science
of politics as well as I do now. I told
Mr. Stephens about it one night in
MilltdgfTille whtn we wire all in a
good hnmpr and were talking about
the old times of Whigs and Demo
crats, and he sinik-d and said, ''Yes,
we had to do those things, and soiue
tinies they were ery disagieeiblf1."
Theie is a curious difference in the
manner in which great generals han
dle a cigar. Gen. Grant, for instance,
who is the greatest smoker of the age,
uses his as if he enjoyed it. Ho cuts
off the tip with hi3 pocket knife, and,
once lighted, the cigar never leaves
his lips until the fire gets so near his
mustache as to singe it, and thru he
sticks in it a wooden toothpick and
strengtli cigar, which he imports him
self from Havana. Iitf Mimkcs slow iy
and deliberately, wirh iiie gi canst
enjoyment, and believes ;Jml lo knock
off the ashes spoiK tho ilavur of
cigar. He does not use a gtoat 1113113
a day, although he it constantly
smoking. A bo ot lifty will la-t
him a week or ten da 3.
Gen. Sherman'n habits tiro the very
reverso. He smokes quite- as con
stently as Gen. Grant, but u-es Ave
cigars to Grant's one, but lie isn't
paiticular about the quality. He
knows a good cigar when he tastes it, ,
but is indifferent whether he Ji.un a '
Wheeling stoga or a Eoiha Victoria
in his mouth. Ho rmokes as if if
was a disagreeable duty to ha cr
formed as lapidly as possible, chews
the end that is in his mouth, and j
bite3 it off 111 chunks so that hi
oigar is consumod at one end as fust s
as it is at mo outer.
Grant always talks with a uijrar in
his mouth; Sherman never does. Ho
lays it down somewhere when he
starts to make a remark, forgets where
he puts it, and lights a freak one
when he finishes what ho wanted to
say. The result is that his desk or
the furniture arouni the room in
which he happens to be smoking, is

regard to consequences.
Gen. Sheridan is fond of tobacco,
and enjoys a quiet smoke, but he can
not do anything else while ho has a
cigar in his mouth without losing his
fire. He breathes through his "nose,
and unless he pays striot attention to
the business of smoking, his cigar
goes out every other minute. The
result 13 that the carpet around his
desk and thecuapidor beside him
usually strewn with half burned
matches, for he generally needs a
full box 01 them for ewrj cigar he
Gen. Hivtlei alwaB takes what is
called a "cold smoke." lie no7or

chew it, but rolls his tongue around
the tobacco as if he enjoyed the taste.
When he dictates letters or speeches
or briefs to hisstenogtapherliP keeps
his cigar in his mouth, tip his chair
back, puts his feet on the table, and
abuts his eyes. When he fiuithes the '

Xiogan smokes by spells. For weeks -he
will not light a cigar, and then he '
will smoke constantly. During the '
