that only death would finally separate them Walter had now been on the plantation sufficient time to know all the servants connected with the premises It was during the days of slavery and old man Bar telle was the owner of quite a number of negroes It was Wal ters custom to visit the cabins of evenings Rafter tea and listen to the old darkies tell of his mother how good and kind she was to them They never knew his fath er but for his mothers sake and the sake of her sou they wanted him to return Each day a boy was sent to the postoffice returning without a letter from the absent one Each disappointment increased the anxiety of the mother and son and often they could be seen weepingi as though their hearts While a letter was anxiously expected from Mr Gifford Walter received regular answers from his epistles to Aunt Lizzie She wrote lovingly telling him how happy she was over the finding of his mother and ere long she believed his father would tome to him Walter got much comfort from Aunt Lizzies letters and it did his mother great good toI read them Walter was now well acquainted- in the neighborhood and had made quite a number of friends among the young people at MidI way He had been going for the mail several months One morn ing in May 1857 he said to his mother before starting I be lieve we will hear from father this day When he reached the post office he found a letter addressed to his grandfather mailed at New Orleans He felt sure that it wasi from his father and hurried home as buickly as possible He told his mother that he believed he had the right letter and he walked into his grandfathers room his mother following The old gentleman opened the letter and in an instant he exclaimed Vi ola 1 your husband Walters father lives and we will soon have with us The letter read New ORLEANS May 257 Mr James BartelleMidway Ky Dear Sir By accident I picked up an old Cincinnati paper this morning and in glancing over it I saw a advertisement with your name tit 0 saying I would be gladly received at your house From the advertisement I judge that my beloved wife is living I have trav ed this country over hoping to find her a xfinally believing that she was deaul settled in New Orleans enjoymenthaveappeared from your house a few marriageIf swer at onceVery trulyEUGENE GIFFORD 015 5th Street brougeht e hold Viola looked ten years younger and Walter was so enthused with the information that he was to soon see and know his father that he went over the plan tidingsall to A letter went by return mail telling Mr Gifford to come as speedily as possible that Viola was living and that her anxiety could not be expressed Trave was slower in those days and the family calculated that it would Eugelyle waas detailed to go for Aunt Lizziee Viola and Walter desinug that she f be present when Mr Gifford ar rived In a few days theold ladyI was driven up to the Bartelle mansion Walter and his mother were delighted to see her and for several days they entertained each other with stories of the past and the early approachof Walters father Aunt Lizzie speaking to Viola said I know from the day you lauded at my house that there was no scandal attached to you a mystery that would come out right in the end and it is a source of much joy to me to know that my predictions have proven true When I see you and your husbandand Walter united the anxiety ofmy life will have been gratified I could then return to my humbleipme in Adair county and live out the remainder of my days in peace and happiness knowing that you and yours were comfortably situated She was told that she could have a home at the Bartelle residence the remainder of her life if she desired No said she I have a little interest back in the hills and when I see you all united it will be my duty to return to my humble home My husband has been buried for many years on a little knoll not fur from my house and when my time comes to go I want to be laid beside him At this juncture Walter dashed into the room saying Grandfather be iovcs father will reach home this day All eyes were immediately turned in the direction of the big gate hoping to see a buggy approaching They did not look but a few minutes until they discovered a vehicle rapidly advanc ing Violas heart was in a flutter The buggy passes through the gate and the occupant is now coming hurriedly up the drive Viola and Walter are outside the house and- rea making rapid steps to the yard enterauce the vehicle stops a gentleman alights and in an in taut is in the arms of Viola They embraced each other time und again when suddenly Viola exclaimed Eugene I this is our son whom you have never seen Then Walter was taken into his fathers arms and presently all three went into the house Mr and Mrs Bartelle were perfectly carried away with Mr Giffords appearance andhAunt Lizzie fairly shouted with joy It was indeed a happy meeting The husband and wife separated for nearly sixteen years the husband not knowing that he was father until his sou was introduced to him by his loving wife meetingnEugene related why he left home He heard that Viola had suddenly disappeared from her home and that her uncle Mr Den Bartelle was out looking for her This al most crazed him but when he was told that Violas uncle had return ed without any trace of her he became perfectly desperate and started on the hunt himself He traveled over nearly all the States visited the large cities and after an unsuccessful search of several years settled in New Orleans believing that Viola was dead He had written a number of letters but never received an answer He was chinking in a largo retail store in New Orleans and that it was a mere accident that he saw the ad vertisement which brought him home A gentleman had return ed a pair of shoes wrapped in a old newsper and in untieing the bundle he discoved the notice I am now here said Mr Gifford t a happy man with a prom ise to you Viola and Walter to remain until separated by death There is but little more to be told Mr Bartelle and wife gave Viola the farm and a number of horses and cattle and a large sum ot money property equal to It i value was settled upon Jennie the old people divided time with their two daughters until removed by death Walter took to medi cine and graduated from a New York University and after his marriage he located in Georgia successfully practicing his profession Mr St Clair remained with Mr Gifford and Mr Ben Bartelle found a home with Mr Newby in Mississippi AuntiLizzie was substantially remain bed She

Instantly came another shot then a rapid fu shade as the occupants of the lobby came pouring panicstricken through the broad doors into the corridor Behind of them in the lobby wisps of pow ful der smoke veiled a huddle of frighten ed men crowding through the opposite exits to the street or crouching behind pillars Two men bleeding ev cry step came rushing into the corridor calling for help Two

The war in the Phiippenes haa not been settled and may not be for many years All talk of a political battle at Frankfort has died out since th last fight Several of our Republican friends from this town have been to Frankfort recently and they all got back in the full belief that Mr Goebel will be Governor Several gentlemen of Columbia who are Republicans in principle and others who voted against the Democratic ticket have recently returned from Frankfurt They state there is no doubt but Mr Goebel stud the other Democratic candidates will win in the contest Last Tuesday evening the people throughout the State received the news of tho deadly conflict in our Capital city the participants being the Hon D G Colson of Mhlcllesborough and Ethelbert Scott of Somerset After the smoke had cleared away three men were found lead and four others wounded Scott was killed and f two men who were not engaged in the fight while Colson was shot in the left arm The fight was the result of bad bloodexisting between the participants and while it is unfortunate that such things happen yet in this tragedy the most appalling feature is the killing accidently of two distinguished parties Messrs Demeree and Julian and the wounding of three others It is claimed that Colson and Scott fired simultaneously but that has not yet been established Mr Colson was ar rested and lodged in jail Some weeks ago the question as to whether this year was the clos ing of the 19th century or the be ginning of the 20th caused consid = arable discussion but now it has ceased to be of interest and after all the many little debates on the question have been silencedwe of have but very few living in the c 20th century as they claim It was quite amusing for some time to hear the arguments and see the mile post marks that were made to of prove that Jan 1000 was the beginning of tho twentieth but facts and figures coincide to upset their be of theory and but few of the 20th century people can be found The fact that 100 years complete make a century therefore lOOOcjmplete he years make 19 centuries is a stun nertb those who are now as they think living in a new century c Heres to the band whose living ahead of time well join you in the century business next year How little Mr McKinleys promice to furnish any desired in formation to Congress meant was shown when the Sftnato under or of ders from the White House voted flown Senitor Pedigrews amend meat to the Hoar resolution of in qniry asking that the Seugfcebe 1fw r ii furnished a copy of Mr McKin Jeys instructions to the Comrnifi siiierswXfv negotiated the twity IIf peace with Spain That infor mation Would there are good rpp sons to believe show that there is a contradiction in the policy Mr McKinley claimed to have when he gave those instructions and that followed by him since the treaty l was negotiated and in order to avoid making a public exhibition of himself by going back on his word he called on the Republican a majority in the Senate to save him and his orders have been obeyed The Senate has agreed to vote on the Gold Standard bill Feb 15 Acting Governor Taylor shows all thu signs of an expert in pardoning c his friends and political allies Last week he granted par dons to two of his fellow county men before the law had been ap plied save in their arrest Later he pardoned two men from the mountains who had been tried fined and placed in the workhouse his plea being that they had not received a fair trial Then again he pardoned a Railroad Company for violating the Separate Coach Law in advance of a trial If methods of this kind are to be in stituted why need we laws or pun ishment as a penalty for their violation It is our opinion tha some reasonable restriction should be placed on the pardoning power of a Governor As it is in this matter a Governor has all the right and power of any ruler in any form of Government beyond the dark rages to the present There should be stronger reasons for taking law breakers out of the custody of local civil authorities s than that of personal acquaint ance and partisan purposes The mae0tters pertaining to the action and government of every man of what ever creed or faith and we see no reason why Mr Taylor should par don men guilty of charges under the law before thay have been tried nor excuse them from a just sentence after they have been con victed The action of the Govekno- in these matters seem to be pure ly partisan and ought to be eon condemued by every good citizen regardless of politics ROLLINOBURO Quite a number of plant beds have

Establish A sfat College for Worn PhiladelphiaOr Although William L Elkins the Phil adelphia New York and Chicago trac tion magnate refuses as yet to talk of the project his close friends say he proposes to make magnificent financial provision for the founding in Philadel phia of a womans college on as broad a plan as that of Stephen Girard who so many years ago founded the now collegeforMr Elkins has for years been con sidering the details of n plan to found an institution of care and learning and It is now said that he has fully decided- on establishing a college for girls which will in every way compare favorably with Girards famous charity Negotia lions are now in progress for c fitting site on the outskirts of the city Not only is it his desire to give his native city an institution which will be of really national importance but it is his wish as well to see that his desires are carried out to the letter and for that reason he will perfect all the de tails while he is still vigorous in mind end body What it will cost to endow such a charity is at most a matter of conject ure though on the scale indicated it must amount to millions It is pointed out that girl orphans have no such ad vantages as are enjoyed by boys under the Girard will and it is the chance to supply this badly needed institution that Mr Elldns has embraced The in stitution is to be entirely nonsectarian but it is understood that the few ar ticles of the Girard will which forbid all ministers from entering the college will not be a part of the Elkins plan PRIESTESS OF ANARCHY

propagation of her views To a few friends she explained her reasons as follows In my experience with the American workingman during more than ten years I have found him to be the most contemptible creature on earth Even the ignorant Russian peasant down trodden and stupid as he is will revolt sometime when the outrages commit ted upon him become great Here in this country the government is more despotic than that of the czarTalk of liberty Why there ismorc of that in Russia than you have here I have been imprisoned for ayearbecause I insisted on my right to talk in New York city and in scores of other places the police would not let me enter the hall I had hired to deliver a speech in THE RICHES OF ALASKA Capt Abercrombie After Three Years Exploration la Confident of Future of

few days ago at the Undergraduate hospital where a large section of the skull was removed to permit the excision of a varicose vein The patient was Frank T Gordon a carpenter He was sufferer from epileptic fits but has had none since the operation and Dr F C Schaef fer the operating surgeon has strong hopes of his permanent recovery For the trephining four holes were bored in the skull at the corners of a square A very thin wire saw was then introduced under the skull and coming out the openings Then the bone was sawed upward on three sides but only partly through on the fourth which acted as a hinge After the operation the bone was lowered over the opening How much will yin give me for this atlas asked a shabbilydressed private tutor is he walked into a sec ondhand booksellers and

tho announcement that the little town of Snowden Va on the banks of thp Potomac had been bombarded by United States soldiers It was literally true Eightinch shells fired from siege guns shrieked throughout tao town and caused everyone to seekrtf uge in the basements of their houses The artillery of Fort Foote were or dered recently to do target practice with the new siege guns A target was placed two miles below tho fort and about zOO yards from the Virginia shoreSnowden onehalf mile below was in the direct line of fire The officers in charge did not reckon on the skip ping propensities of shells striking water at an angle The fiat thing that Snowden knew was that it was being bombarded more terrifically than any city was ever bombarded during the civil war Word was in stantly sent to the war lepartmqnf fo stop the target practice Thp deparL ment instantly issued orders but be fore theycould reach Fort Footo tha- bombardment of Snowden had been resumed and the populace again fled for their cellars No one was hurt in the town though one barn was strudk The inhabitants ara digging tne shells as souvenirs Cleveland Plain Dealer =Will Prove Their Ruin A writer in the German
