When he next addresses me it will be mrs. Gosper Fenton. One month after the eventful Ball Josephine married Gasper Fenton. It was a Brilliant affair Aud the Young couple started off on their wedding tour with All the pomp of circumstances which wealth affords. Woyen roof unmitigated misery passed away. Josephine a revengeful act Hud recoiled upon herself. Her husband had proved to Bemore despicable than Remington had assumed. Restraint no longer necessary he attempted no conceal Mutof his evil companionship or his immoral practices. Nightly he either held an digit at Home with companions As brutal is himself or went abroad to some Den of no doubtful character. He had Long since ceased to treat his wife with any semblance of respect. Lie taunted her with coarse allusions to her love for Remington which he knew she still cherished and never ceased to worry her for sums of Money. One cold wretched Day in the Winter As she sat by the window gazing wearily out at the wildly Drifting Snow her husband entered und taking a seat beside her he said a you Don t look Well a indeed 1 am quite Well a she replied for she would never acknowledge to him her increasing weariness. She Well knew that he would rejoice rather than weep Over her death. Quot no you Are not Well and have not been for some time.

Quot i was madly jealous of theatre Migton and feared you still cherished his memory and it made me act unbecoming by. Rut after such an unmistakable evidence of your love 1 can Douht no longer. I shall return presently and he hastily left the room. Josephine cast a scornful Milia Nannt glance at the retreating figure Ollier husband. A fool does he think to Blind me with his maudlin sentiment i will out wit him Fenton fearing to let her Resolution Cool soon returned with a lawyer and a will was quickly drawn up and attested and signed. This will Josephine gave to her husband with every appearance of satisfaction and Fenton thinking it secure muttered exult Antly a i never hoped to secure it so easily. It shall now be my care to see that she makes no but Josephine was a match for Bis cunning. The very next morning she had another will drawn up. Leaving everything to some Distant relative whom she had never seen. Her health gradually failed and when the cold raw winds of March swept Dol fully around her dwelling she was confined to her room and soon she was too weak to Rise from Lier bed. She knew that before the Balmy life giving air of summer would come she would be lying in her grave but the thought of her second secret will was the source of an exult not Joy even on the Borders of the Tomb. Frenton too know that she was dying. A i will search a thought he a she is sly and Crafty and perhaps she has eluded my vigilance and made a later will than the one i so he searched the House Over but found nothing. A if she has any it is secreted about her bed a he thought As he watched her with opening cautious eyes. He soon detected her nervous habit of feeling about her Pillow and at once thought he saw the Corner of a paper. A the sly Jade a he fiercely muttered. A she has one beneath her Pillow but by heaven ill have it and destroy it a watching his Opportunity he entered the room where she had been left alone. He had been drinking to drown his anger and disappointment and when Josephine saw Iii fiend like face she shrieked with fear. A hush your noise. You thought to fool me but ill have that will that you be secreted about you if i have to choke you to get he Mude a Rush toward the bed and snatched the Pillow from beneath Lier head. Filled with fierce strength born of excitement his wife clutched him about the neck with her attenuated hands thus impeding his movements. He attempted to choke her off but she Clung to him with a deathly grip. Her sunken eyes glared frightfully the red spots of her Cheeks deepened showing More Videly the Gastev pallor of her face and his shrill cry for help rang through the House. The servants rushed to the room and dragged the infuriated madman from the bed just As his frantic clutches at the lied clothes had disclosed a Legal looking document. The dying woman Sank Back exhausted. The glaring eyes grew filmy and expressionless the jaw dropped and the clenched hands relaxed. She was dead. Gasper Fenton was handed Over to the authorities and the last will and testament of the unhappy Josephine beg Garing her husband was executed. Hindsight in excess. A the most Rem arable Case of Hindsight i Ever came across a said the old Railroad superintendent a occurred on my division several years ago. A Young Man named Brown was operator at a Way station about ten Miles this Side of Alliance. He was a Good boy All Over and i had my Eye on him for promotion. But one Winters night after ordering a freight train to come West he let no. 10 passenger express go East. How he made the Blunder he never could explain. A on a single track Road nothing under heaven could prevent a wreck and Brown realize that before the rear lights of the passenger train were out of sight. Most men would have lost their Heads at the thought but lir own did no to. He remained at his instrument and telegraphed me As follows a Send wrecking train at once trains 10 and 37 in �?o1 went out with the wrecking train at once picked up Brown on the Way and found a and Emu Shup sure enough though the engineers of both trains had sighted each other in time to Avert a frightful catastrophe of course i had to discharge Brown but if his foresight had been equal to his Hindsight what a splendid railroader he would have a Cherokee Romance from the st. Loutiti Globe Democrat. On a prominent Eminence in the Prairie overlooking the town of Tahlequah has been a solitary grave Jor sixteen years. It contained the remains of Mary Downing the wife of a full blooded Cherokee chief Lewis Downing at the time of her death the place was her Home and it was her dying request that she should he buried on the Summit of the Hill. 8incethen the property has passed into strange hands und the grave has been in the midst of a Corn Field. The present owner a gentleman from Georgia hearing she was a chiefs wife thought it was due her to rest in a More sacred place. So Lier remains were exhumed and taken to the Tahlequah cemetery. Her Maiden name was Mary Ayer. She was born in Bethlehem pa., was educated and accomplished and a woman of wealth. She had romantic ideas and her infatuation for indians was extreme. In 1865 chief Lewis Downing was sent to Washington d. C., on business for the cherokees. Though a full blood he spoke English quite Well. While at Washington he had occasion to visit Bethlehem and acc Dently met miss Ayer who Felt desperately in love with him. The chief lingered Louger in Bethlehem than ii had intended not being Able to tear himself away Iron the charms of so fair a lady and Ere his departure had won her consent to be his Bride and share a place in his wigwam. It was agreed Between the two that she could follow him to the territory and be married at the capital. months to dispose of her property and convert her valuables into Cash. Chief Dot Wing returned to his nation and with hit it proved a out of sight out the ardor of his love soon cooled and he wrote withdrawing his engagement. She after Reading his letter remarked that a it took two to make a contract and two to break it a and so wrote him. Bel Rethis letter had reached the chief he had married a Dusky Maiden oflus own tribe. Miss Ayer having gotten everything in readiness started for the territory. According to contract she arrived at nth Acquah and on hearing of ii a marriage made up her mind to make her Home among his people devoting her life to 1 heir advancement. Years elapsed and the chiefs wife died. Miss aver being yet single he renewed his vows and was again Nee Ted. They were married and went to the Home she had built. The life she had Long dreamed of was realized but not Long was she permitted to fill his House with tight und love Ere death claimed her. On her deathbed she told the chief that on the third evening after her death she would return to him at her Home. But he inheriting the superstition of his race closed the House after the funeral and returned to his Home about thirty Miles Distant on grand River. It is said that on the third night after her burial lights were been moving from window to window and the indians believe to this Day that she reappeared of that night. Falling into a net. The first thing an Nero at learn when he gets u Pon ther Lapezo is How to Tail into the net. He quickly discovers that the safest Way to strike is upon the shoulders. Then comes the Long hours of practice to learn How to strike there. A trained performer can to a certain extent always control himself in the air. He can twist about on his Buck or some other position that is Safe. The trouble with Many is that they turn too Quick. The two most dangerous positions in which to strike the net Are on the face or feet Foremost. The former makes a broken neck or a broken Back probable while the latter is Likely to result m broken legs and a broken dispatch. She had him.

But who Pray Ever heard of a self made woman a she a women Are naturally modest you know. It is for that reason that they choose to Trust their making in the hands of Providence. And if you will look up the matter with unprejudiced vision i think you la agree that on the whole the work which Provedence turns off will compare Well with the work of the self made making peace.
