Lots of folks affect to sneer at a Consta when Sevholm called at my office and re- deemed tbe chain} till as much as two years had gone by. I chanced one evening to be walk log on a street X had oot aeeo before, when I came to the front of a mighty pretty cottage, with a trim garden and grass lawn io front; and I stood ad" miring it a bit, as I have fashion of stopping lo enjoj nice place, when a hand was laid on my shoulder, aod a cheery voice cried out: Constable John Frick! Give me your hand." It you'll believe me, it was that identical lohfVr. Carl Sevboim. But not the least bit of a loafer now. Not much. You wouldn't meet a smarter- luoklug man nor more respectable gentle- mun m a long day's march. It was a solid pleasure lo look at him aod remember what a G-od foraafeea scamp he had been m.t three years before. Come rigUt in and see Mrs. Sevholm." be said, pulling me up to the side all covered with pretty vines. She'll be mighty glad to set Pit-used? Yon'J better believe ;i_ Pleas wasn't half a name for it. The delight of new-Sorn happiness and thankful grati linle was jusl dancing In her bright eyes. Ah, and wasn't she a picture! Health and gladness of heart had all come back to her. Soul numbing IroUble had all gone. She juat as sweet and nice-looking a lady as I ever set eyes on. And the baby, aa plump and fresh'as a spring robin, was toddling around like a bouse afire. House was furnished handsome, I can tell you Everything io apple-pie order. It was easy to.see ihat the aid miserable saloon tippling was played oot for good. When I stood up to leave, after enjoying a real pleasant chat, and promising to call again, Sevholm clasped my band aa he said to me: "Constable John Frick. that was an aw- ful thrashing you gave me. My bones ached for a month. Bui it did me more good than anything I ever had. And I thank you for it lo-day. It made a mac of was starting away on duty, she said, pro- miscuous like: Recollect.

I said in my most dignified voice, must do my duty." But, Lord! what a heap nf mean, cruel things we sometimes do in same name of duly. When the writ of expulsion put into my bands and the landlord said he wouldn't give another day I felt meaner than a skunk. Tbe weather was juat fear- ful. It was not onTy biting cold but damp and foggy, and gloomy enough to make folks in trouble bend" their thoughts to getting relief by self-murder. I found the same sodden young man in tbe salooo, as tipsy and sloucby and dirty as before. No, come to think, not exactly tbe same. Now he was noisy drunk, swag gering about tbe place, awenriog and brag and experienced masters. The soil is rich, and all tropical fruit grows to its fullness.

Since we arrived here a lady eating her breakfast at one of tbe hotels had her watch violently taken from her by a slreet thief, who reached between tbe bars and snatched it from her. An elder- ly gentleman, who stopped his carriage to wharf, hounded on by the jeers of the by- standers. The military police made no complimentary or denunciation. You go on board here the same as at all the other Cuban ports. A small broad-bot- tomed boat with a three-cornered sail is the conveyance.

To meet one of these old bobbies peering about with hia bull's-eye and reaping-hooK is a sight. Their use of names strikes us as a little odd. America ia a woman's name. A .til- th e United States has always been so solic- itous concerning who should own it. 'Some of the older men can recall the Ostend manifesto ihat was drawn up by Mason, Soule and Buchanan at Ostend in 1854. They asked" for the ceding of the island to tbe United Stales for a consideration, and went so far as lo recommend that in cer- tain contingencies our Government should seize.it.

Tbo Late John Welsh. THE CAREER OP A K EMINENT AND USEFUL BUSINESS MAN.' John Welsh, ex-Mioiater to England, died on the 10th Instant, after a ill- ness, at Philadelphia. He was best known to the country at large through his connec- tion with the Centennial Board of Finance. He waa born in Philadelphia in 1805 and was one of the three sons of the late John Welsh, Br., who came from New Castle, Delaware, in The elder Welsh- brought up his sons for a mercantile career and gradually relinquished his business to them. John Welsh became a member of the firm upon the. death of'his fqther in 1854. The bouse is the largest one in the West India trade in Philadelphia, import- ing solely on commission. For some time Mr. Welsh was a member of Councils, and be was! a of ihe Sinking Fond for twenty years. He was also President of the Philadelphia Board of Trade. In June, 1864, be waa Chairman of the Executive Committee of the Sani- tary Fair, from which tbe sue awfully cold flay in March, when the wind seemed-to be tearing things Lo flin- ders around the corners of tbe old fnime building, and whistled and bowled in a way to make a burner head boss of tbe ranch.

I remember L thrught they were misera- ble places for God's creatures lo live in. and awful weather to put a family out on the sidewalk in. I may as well t.wn up'that Constable Jobo Frick had "no heart'1 for Ibis part of the busioess. Of course the landlord had a right to his rent. That's evident. If tbe tenants did not pay they must go out. All the SHme, Constable Jobo Frick felt meao and un- comfortable. To save hia neck, be couldn't, account for it; but it seemed as if something would keep on suggesting, Suppose there is n delicate woman and a lot. of Hi lie cbjt For answer, the soul of Constable John Frick kept OD responding, Putting them out iplo the cold roadway Mich stinging wentber will be a miserable business, make the best of and his heart kicked strong against it. But this waa borrowing trouble; and it wasn't business. It might be that Ihe Sevholm was 'he name on the go out peacefully. I know I prayed slrnng it might be so, though it would be fees out of Constable John Frick's pocket if he did. Room 6 waa in the rear on the ground floor. I had to reach it through a saloon. Curious hqw saloons come to be everlast- ingly mixed up with poor families having lo be put out into the] street. Who kept the saloon I never knew. There wag a greasy-faced, fat-bellied hulk of a man. in a brown knit woolen jacket, behind tbe bar, and a slim young fellow crouched against the wall oo one side, stu pid from the effects of liquor or beer, "t pretty nigh made tne sick to look ut he doubled up on the chbir. What the -----do you want in here? he yelled as I was passing oo lo room 6. "You. dry up. snapped the greasy-faced man. bim by the arm and swinging bim back from follow- ing, after me. "He's got business with your wife. Keep still, you' you're not fit for business." But the tipsy loafer broke away, and burst into Lbe presence of his wife; and when I had explained the nature of my errand he ranted out: It's all right, Elsie. I've got place ready. I'll fetch a wagou and have the things moved right away." I'm glad of I said to his wife ua she held up her white, troubled face lo ward me. And just then this thought was forced upon me: "How in ihe world did so nice a woman become Lied to a brute like "Oh, if he only was the pitiful exclamation uf the woman. I now learned thai another suite of rooms had been secured, only awaiting ihe pay- :ment of Ihe first raonih'd rent in advance, and that by salt of 1 portion uf wife's best wearing Hpparcl the uet-iitM money had been secured. I also learned (but the was n first workman in a business thai paid exceptionally hi.eh wages, ami tuat until he harl fallen into habits of intoxication they had lived as happily and respectably as hearts could de- sire. Would he return with a team and gain the nev home for his family, or would he coiilinue hia drunken spree and spend the money his wife's clothing had been sacri- ficed to secure? I asked these questions a score of times as I stole furtive glances al the troubled look in the woman's eyes aod noted the terrible strain her mind was in while IIP was gone. The furniture was nearly all packed ready for removal, and 1 knew, ihouph she did not tell me, tbat the frail wffe had spent her strength in llie arduous p re para tiou.

He woul-l not trrani an- other-hour's delay, so there was no help for it; if Sevholm did not speedily appear, I should be compelled lo place theireffecla on ihc sidewalk. So slating to Jlrs. Sevholm, I added that 1 would a heap rather take slicking than do it. With tears of thankfulness in her eyes she responded: ''You sbVl be put to the pain God biess you for your kindly syaapsfny. you are like the dear old father occe had."

TTTEIK WEDDING TRIP The wedding trip of a country couple came to a sad and sudden end at the Sher- man yesterday, all owing to a lack of knowledge about city hotels. They arriv- ed no and look a room near the roof. From ihat lime until the hour of their depariure they did not frequent the dining-room, but took their meals where economy seemed to. dictate. With what they broughi from the wedding feast at home they got along remwkably well, and weie congratulating themselves on their success al "keeping down expenses" un ti! the new husband went lo settle his bill.

Of course I understood well enough that, she had given up all hope of he man's re turn, or of ever seeing the money which she had trusted him with to pay for the rooma. And it was curious, as I could sec as plain as plain could be, that she waa ten times more pained and worried about my finding out what a miserable scamp her husband was showing himself, than for all the trouble and misery he had heaped on herself.

Daniel Houghton, the head of the family, was a man of. great natural shrewdness and strength character. His Iwo broihers, iJacob and were al- ways associated with him; but, while his business proceedings understood to be wiih their advice and consent, Daniel always held a sort of veto power over his brothers, and nothing ever passed over his veio. He is dead now, but the story of tbe way io which he used to "consult his directors is still told in Spiodleville. One day a cotton broker called at the of fice of the mill in which Haughton was treasurer, and offered him a big lot of cot- ton at a certain price, This is so large a said Haughton, "that I really ought to consult my directors about it.
