By .5 i Unis lord Bach says that co pleasure is comparable to the standing on the Vantage around of truth which is just what the writer of this veritable history claims to do every event recorded in these pages has actually happened either to personal friends or persons Well known o the writer the name alone being fictitious. What s in a name ? certes the name was not riven to him at the baptismal font if to was there to never i collected the fact and none of his ancestors for to had ancestors had Ever borne Bleb a appellation. Nor is the name manufactured for the Ronco it was his just As much As his Peculiar patronymic which it is needless to introduce Here. Suffice it to say that be acquired the name at the school which he we will not say frequented for his absences whenever to could make a excuse were frequent but at which he attended and was acquired in quite a accidental manner. He was known far and wide better by it than the Jia Uirl he could legally claim whether his school Fellows saw some hidden fitness in the Nanio or not we do not know. Booger As he will be known for the future vva3 a Stout Burly lad about 4ft. Loin. At the time this Story opens with Light Brown hair eyes of a indistinct Hue generally called cat s eyes a Good set of Masti actors and his years As the French say he had seventeen years of age. H�3 father had been a Soldier Brave and bad retired on his laurels and half pay which was just genteel starvation. Booger however did not inherit the martial taste of his sire and when he Lett the local school the old Man was unable to push him in the world. Having paid pretty highly for his son s education he of course concluded it had been As Good a one As he could give Bim but he b. Would have Cut a sorry figure in Competition with scholars from our primary schools. Now he entered the service of an apothecary of the town who by transposing his name was familiarly called standup straight or shortly old Booger used to say he was straight in his name and narrow in his ways in the commissariat line. Still Booger grew and thrived and was familiarly known a3 the Young doctor by the old women and boys who did not know any better poor things than to an apothecary a doctor Aud in the capacity of Young Geu Lemau assistant As in these Days he would be designated he was occupied one morning in the arduous and necessary occupation of dusting up and getting things " ship shape As he called it for dwelling i a seaport town he had imbibed the usual Quantity of Slang a Theu an old wound who followed the occupation of nurse and in that capacity had been instrumental in ushering into existence sundry additions to the population and also performing the last offices for those who were taking their departure for the unknown Laud whence Thero is no return rushed into the shop Aud saluted him thus Arrah Young doctor for the love of the saiut3 give me something for a poor Mau that s taken very bad Down the Street Here where is he said Booger assuming an important look in As near an imitation of his Boss As he could. " what is the matter with Bim " of Sorra a one o me knows there s some thing the matter void his Booger held a consultation resolved himself into a committee of the whole for a few moments so to the advisability of calling the head of Tho establishment but us it was a cold morning and still Early a Little after 0-Aud As the amiable individual rejoicing in the name of straight was of an irascible Turu of mind and not accustomed to hesitate As to the nature of the first missile that came to his hand on occasions he decided to act in accordance with the proverb " lot sleep ing dogs lie which happily expressed his private sentiments towards the head of the establish ment and proceeded to act on his own Hook. He was in great doubt As to what to should pre scribe As the state agent of Tho person s ailments was somewhat vague also there was an uncertainty about the recompense being forthcoming. He dared not leave the premises to visit the sufferer but having drawn from mrs. Cook that the Mau was endow voting to get rid of something which was annoying him it equally his Eye lit on the tartar erotic and he forthwith provided Mary with a dose with strict injunctions As to the manner of administering it and resuming his work presently forgot the occurrence. In due time the master his appearance in a gorgeous dressing gown and Betook himself to his desk to write and there was silence save the scratching of his pen for some time Booger knowing from old experience that until the lion had been fed he was to say the least dangerous the silence was broken at length by the Advent of a Small crowd of boys and girls and Mon at the head of whom was Mary with something held in her apron with both bands and a run Piug file of ejaculations commenced " glory be to god " Jim did you Seo it " what is it like Mary " o praises Kitty is it alive and so Forth. Straight looked up. " William Seo what these people want said he. No Booner had Booger opened the half door of the shop than he Felt what he could Only Ima Gine to be the paws of a Bear about his neck almost strangling him while the owner of the paws poured Forth a string of thanks and praises in Irish which As far As Booger s understanding was concerned might As Well have been bad hebrew or worse greek. " what the Dickins is Tho matter with you an answer came from the crowd mrs. Cook sir Mary Cook doctor she has it. " has what roared Booger. " of the thing your honour the Baste. Show it to his honour the crowd were making such a Row half a dozen speaking together that Booger thought his wits were going. Old straight s voice re called them " William what is the matter ? i i Don t know sir. They say Mary cookha3 a something in her apron and there s a big countryman half choking me that s All i know about it " bring the woman in and abut the door " which was effected. Now my Good woman what is the matter a then your honour i Dunno but i believe its a a what " a _ what in the name of All that s useful what is this drop Druk what do you Call it ? what is the thing William Booger thought it sounded very like greek Asu. Recollection served but not being sur held his Tongue. Then it occurred to him that the shortest Way of finding out was to examine this strange beast if it were a beast. " now Mary said he where s this thing what s its name 5" sure it s Here in my Well show it to but Mary did not see Why she should have the trouble and risk of catching the Baste and wanted to make her own terms yet her Awe of the imposing looking person in front of her checked her and while she was hesitating not As to what would to a fair thing but How much she dared ask Booger who was apprehensive of an outbreak on the part of the Superior authority whispered Mary Shew it to us and i la Brand a May hesitated the morning was raw she waa weary had been sitting up All night with a poor woman who was that Way poor thing she was in want of her morning Glass of Porter ? St & in it to after a Long Prol Crue con Cering How she happened to be passing and Nash Law to Man trying to turn his inside out and How she came for the Medicine to the Young doctor although where the Man was was nearer or. Rone s now this was decidedly Crafty on the part of mrs. Cook for or. Rone was the rival apothecary and she saw by straight s face a ii a hit &0 a a treat was Nauy concluded that she was to Deposit the of Ste a Basin which Booger tendered and to Juk two shillings of Good and lawful Money of Ireland she knew nothing about great Britain and cared less. Mth doctors both old and Young had Noloe of what the Baste As Mary caused it waa it i 15"inatno c0dveyetl a meaning to them Che n. F an. Octopus 0l" a polyps or anything -. As tar As the hard name went so amid great expectation she deposited the fearful monster in the Basin which on minute inspection turned out to be a Shell less Snail about 4in. Long. The countryman was then called in and subjected to a examination which As he knew very Little Saxon and Mary was by no Means perfect in her Irish was considerably prolonged. The sum Aud substance of the matter was that he had to be up Early to bring a loud of Hay to Market and so did not go to bed that he slept on some Hay in the barn and Moro he did not know Only that he was " mighty queasy in his innards and on coming town had a drop which him sick a thing evidently beyond his comprehension and was at ii."1 last gasp when Mary gave Kim the drink which caused the eviction of the unwelcome tenant bet re them. Mary received her Money and in contingently went off to invest a part of it in her " morning taking her countryman with her to share the draught. Tho creature was put in a bottle Aud had his morn ing in the shape of some spirit Vin alias spirits of wine. A big Label was put on the bottle and the whole was exhibited in the window to admiring crowds. Taken mom the stomach of a Mas. By j. Stand up Stua qut or words to that effect. The crowd seeing the Man come out with Mary followed to hear the particulars which assisted by her Drain she gave them with Little embellishments of her own gently insinuating that if she had not providentially been passing by at the time Aud been pretty Quick about her Means of Relief the thing might have been the death of the poor Man her version being received with Faith which found utterance now and then in ejaculations of " Oyez Seo that now " Tho poor Man the lord be Good to us a there being Only one dissent eur a Man of a Specula Tive Turu of mind who wanted to know " Liovvi the blazes it got into the Man " Why you great Omagh Iwin came the answer " it Crep Down his " Bedad Inu be so. Beg Shay Gomash Moi Shin i wonder what had he for supper As no one essayed to enlighten him a shut up Aud departed. The news was All Over the town in a Little time and to Many Vor Sious Siiro Given of it and Mary s share in the affair and the Young doctor s were so mixed up that it became a matter of Faith with three parts of the population that Booger had Cut the Man open taken out the " Baste and mended Tho Hole As Well As the doctor himself could have done. Doctor in this in Taco having reference to a regular m.d., f.r.s., who wa3 in practice in the town whose acquaintance the Render May make As we go on la consequence of All this talk Booger became a Public character quite a hero. Of course he did not contradict any Rumour which tended to glorify himself. He began to feel himself a Man of some importance and was so confused by the congratulations he received that a hazy idea was generated in his brain that to really had done something out of the common in fact performed an operation assisted by nature of course did not the Best physicians allow that Thoy could Only assist nature ? pity tis the number is so Small. Quacks think they can renew even the cellular tissue whatever that is. Booger Felt that to was a different Mau now the delicate appreciation had raised hi3 Soli esteem he was disposed to question old straight s authority Only to was not quite prepared yet. He continued to have enlarged ideas of ii a standing and importance and consequently took Moro Evro of his personal appearance impelled thereto by the hardly veiled Flat teries of girls who wanted to make interest for tick for a bottle of hair Oil or a bottle of scent and lads on Tho same Lay for a Cigar now and then. He adorned himself to such a degree that envious people used to say to looked As smart As a " rat of the male Neudor going to a christening the history of the individual who witnessed the expedition is lost in obscurity there is nothing for it but current report and As everybody says it and what everybody says must to True no further authority is required on the subject. Booger being at that time a lad of Nineteen thought that As he was already becoming famous this would to an auspicious occasion to make some Progress in his love suit. He had been " carrying on Ashi delicately phrased it with a fair Damsel the daughter of a Baker in the town. Her name was Annie and As the readers will learn the fact of her father being a Baker led to Sonio important results she had hair of a Hue which she described As a Golden Auburn but the rude rude b is called her " carrots and Hurt her feelings thereby. Booger addressed himself to prosecutor his suit with Ardour and with Success. Who could resist a Young doctor especially one who was so Nico and so Clever and had such Lovely a cent ? in the course of h3 Reading which he fondly imagined to have been extensive to imbibed the impression that to Prosper with women especially with Young women one mu3t be a bit of a a roue for which the qualifications were the being Able to drink smoke and play. Fighting to thought Hail gone somewhat out of fashion and from his experience of Tho Contact of old straight s mib silos with his cranium to rather thought to could dispense with that part of his education. To began to stay out late of nights making his exit after old straight had retaken himself to slumber used to Havo sundry whiskies during the Day till he became pretty Well inured to drink and did not find it very hard work after All to had never played at any game but spoiled fives and then Only for a Dandy a game or a Gou been of tobacco. In his efforts to learn play to found it a very expensive sort of thing so to fell Back on smoking which was rather a gentlemanly diversion when the cigars were not too Strong and the pocket Money not spent. He had established commercial relations Asho phrased it with a Young lady the served in a tobacconist s shop and was sure of tick for a week. As Annie s Mamma for she had one though the old lady has been passed Over so unceremoniously objected to both of his innocent amusements he was obliged to be careful when he paid his Devoirs. Now it so happened that the premises next to the Baker s were occupied by a grocer who also sold whisky not on the sly he had a Lic Eube and moreover it was drunk on the premises As Many of his customers used to be and the door of the room in which the worshippers of Bacchus met opened on to Church Street which went in a Westerly direction till it Cut Nosel s Terrace. Directly opposite to the end of the Street were the churchyard Gates of Iron crowned with a spiked Frame. We say Gates for there were two separated from each other by a narrow Lane. This description is necessary that the Reader May understand what follows. The upper Gate opened into the churchyard. Just inside the Gate the Road divided into two paths surrounding the Church. On the right hand Side close to the vestry was a old Square Tower hundreds of years old which had seen some rough usage in the wars of ancient Days but was at the time of the Story used As a Belfry. It happened on one saturday night after he had bid Good night to his charmer that he turned into Martin s the grocer s to moisten his Clay and meeting some people whom he knew he succeeded so Well in his purpose As to become pretty drunk by 9 o clock. Some soldiers from the Barracks were drinking in Tho room and offence being taken at some observation of boogers a Row ensued either Side being nothing loth which ended in one of the soldiers being felled with the leg of a Stool and left for dead. An alarm being raised that the patrol was in sight which came round to pick up All the men who were not in Barracks when Tattoo sounded there was a sudden clearance of the inmates of the drinking shop. Booger who hardly knew what he was doing rushed up the Street before mentioned and hearing the cries of the soldiers for the Church Gate and commenced to climb Over. The soldiers who were in Chase getting bight of him came on As fast As possible but Booger was Over when they arrived and running up the Lane. He did not like to enter the churchyard which being in Ireland was As a matter of course haunted or believed to be so which came to the same thing. The soldiers not caring to climb the Gate despatched one of their number to the Sexton s for the keys and As Booger from a Corner of the upper Gate had them in full View there being a Gas lamp a Little distance Down the Street he waited until he saw that the Gate was opened and then ran along the right hand path. The soldiers having the key were not far behind him so feeling him self hard pressed and having no wish to be pitted like a Lark with a Bayonet he for the space Between the old Tower and the Church. The Belfry door wa3 open so he ran towards pc and was just in the act of stooping to enter Tia Low arched door Whon right in front of him he saw two balls of fire gleaming brightly. He dared _ not retrace his Steps he knew bythe cries that the soldiers Wero on him there was nothing for it but to enter and Lio quiet. But the awful g1 ring eyes a front terrified him sorely and All Tho stories to had Ever heard of the appearances which were said to have been witnessed in the place occurred to him to further disturb him. As he pressed on some thing struck him on Tho breast. Putting no his hand to found it was the Bell rope which had a knot on the end. Becoming every moment More sober he Felt with his hands and coming in con tact with something hairy he was convinced that Teie was no ghostly visitant to contend with the previous occupant of the chamber being a old Goat which had the rim of the churchyard. Booger Lay still for some time until hearing no noise he crept out and found that the soldiers were retiring. The Immediato danger being Over one would Havo thought he would have the beat of his Way out of Tho churchyard but the Devil of fun which gets Possession of a irishman entered i to him. He waited until he judged the enemy was clean gone then to returned to the Belfry and taking his silk handkerchief he tied it to the Ropo above the knot and fastened it to the Goat s horns in such a manner that the Goat could Only stand on his hid legs having Dono which he went his Way. He had hardly reached the Gato when the Goat feeling his position tiresome began to Buck and jump about which set the Bell going at a fearful rate. It was a Largo Boll and might be Beard Miles away. When tired of his exertions the Goat would stand quiet for a Little time and then commence again. Booger his Way along Tho Back Street till seeing Tubero was a sufficient crowd to give him Sholter he joined the press and of course was just As anxious As any of them to know what the Row was about. In a Short time a couple of thousand people had collected some of them Only half dressed and the mayor had been also summoned. The first thought had been that the town was in flames but no sign of fire wa3 to a detected and no reason could be assigned but that Tho evil one in person was in the Belfry which re commended itself As the most reasonable solution of Tho Puzzlo. The crowd West As far As the churchyard Gate but no further not a foot. Not a Man would stir for some time at last two men were shamed into action but they had not gone far when Tho Bell which Hud Boot silent for a Little rang out such a dreadful peal that they turned tall and ran Back to the crowd. Several attempts were with the same result. Now in going up the path to the vestry it was necessary to pass the grave of an old surgeon who had been a very bad liver and was said to have amassed his i buoy by piracy. No Rasa Evor grew on his grave Aud it was generally to loved that it was " Ould Watkins who was at the Bell. Having been a grim looking old Man and the terror of All the youth of the neighbor Hood in his life his ghost was Given credit for the Possession of a double portion of the living Man s Malignity. This operated on those who were rash enough to attempt the passage is it was just when they got opposite the Gravo that the peals were Niobe furious because the Goat could hear Tho footsteps at length the mayor offered �5 to any one who would put a end to the suspense by seeing what was actually the cause of Tho Row Booger who had kept very quiet of Tho skirt of the crowd being in dread lest some our of his fellow Roister ers might be a Nong them at last presented himself and volunteered but As he thought if to was too Quick about it lie might Xci to a suspicion As to his being Cone a Rcd in the matter he one or two starts but he was plentifully encouraged by Hoso who were not inclined to go themselves. " go on Alannah sure to won t Hurt you said someone in the crowd though Why to possessed any immunity from Ould Watkins was hard to conceive unless it were on the grounds of being in Tho poisoning profession. However he went on to the Belfry at lat and then the most dreadful peal of All that had been heard previously rang out. " of god i be Good to him the Ould villain is strangling him " do be Hoar that and sundry exclamations of a like kind burst from Tho crowd Vav Homo fears were very soon allayed when Booger his appearance leading the unfortunate Goat with one hand Whilo in the other he held about a foot of Tho Boll rope which to had Cut off in order to give effect to his Story. Naturally in telling his tale he did not omit any Nittlo Points to give it More effect and his description of the fiery eyes staring on him from the doorway told on the audience. To merely showed Tho rope and said that the Goat had stuck his Horn in the strands above the Kuot and could not get Clear. Roars of laughter followed on the circulation of the tidings that after All it was Only Ould Folkes � Goat that was in it. But Booger became still Moro raised in the estimation of the Public than before. He to do him Justice did not feel very comfortable until he heard that in Soldier had recovered Aud been taken to Barratta As lie was Only " Kilt. A North Carolina Zirri i a soon after the close of Tho last War Captain a was appointed a Justice of the Pouce in a country place not far from a i Vigli North Caro Lina. His father had been a planter in Mather Small Way and his son the Captain had acquired considerable experience in the business of managing real estate drawing up deed a during the father s lifetime and thou in settling Tho estate after Liis decease. Further than this he had no Legal knowledge and indeed his entire Stock of " Book learning was Small and poorly selected but any Lack in general information was fully up for his uses by self assertion. Late one afternoon Asho was Riding Home from Raleigh he met a Young woman and two men who hailed him and enquired it to was Captain a. The Young woman and Ono of the men wished to be married at once. The other had Como As a witness. They had procured the necessary License but an irate father was on their path and swore that they should never be married. It was considered on All accounts safest to have the ceremony performed without delay and try pacification afterwards. Now Tho Captain had never witnessed a Marri age and naturally had no very Clear idea of what was usual in such cases. He remembered having seen a Book about the House years before with a form for marriage in it but what the Book was and where it was he could not remember " Why said he when he told the Story after Ward. I knew the Postles Creed and commandments and at first i thought i d use pm to begin on but then i reckoned on the whole they was too turned he asked the couple to come to his House secretly hoping that he could find that Book but they declined for the reason that the matter admitted of no delay. A Leas assured Man would have been sorely perplexed but not he. He lost no time in re moving Bis hat and remarked hats off in Tho presence of the All being uncovered he said ill swear you in Fust off. Hold up yer right " me to asked the Friend of the Groom. " of course said the Captain " All witnesses must be sworn. You and each of you solemnly swear that the evidence you shall give in this Case shall be the truth Thole truth an nothing but the truth s Elp you god. You John Marvin do solemnly swear that to the Best of your knowledge an belief you take this yer woman Ter have an Ter hold for yer Belf yer heirs exec Merters administrators and assigns for your an their use an be Hoof forever " i do answered the Groom.

" Well John said the Captain " that la be about a Dollar n fifty " Are we married asked the other. " not by a turned sight to aint quoth the Captain with emphasis " but the fee comes in after some fumbling it was produced and handed to the " court who examined it to make sure that it was All right and then pocketed it and continued know All men by these presents that i captains of Raleigh North Carolina being in Good health and of sound and disposing mind in consideration of a Dollar n fifty cents to me in hand paid the receipt whereof is hereby acknowledged do and by these presents have of ared you Man and wife during Good behaviour Isi until otherwise ordered by the the men put on Tish hats again Tho Young couple after shaking their Benefactor s hand went on to meet their Jestiny and the irate father while the Captain Rode Home Richer in experience Harper s Magazine.

The Vaigneur i give him his French name because bather is not an adequate translation of the word is to be seen at All hours on the Hue where the sea and land Como together with Tho air of a Marino Prodigy who has come in with the tide and waiting for his prey.

His prey Cornea Down to him enveloped in a Peignoir which she throws off before she reaches Tho Edge of the water. If you have seen Dupuis take Judie in his arms at the theatre de3 varieties carry her Down an imaginary Beach and Over imaginary Waves till he plunges her softly into an imaginary sea you May form a Good notion of the ceremonies As conducted Hore at Dieppe. At Trouville you might have seen both Dupuis and Judie rehearsing Naniche from nature but neither of them would venture to appear on the Beach in the costume which passed without criticism on the stage mme. Judie least of the two. For the rest the Waves and the water Are in some states of weather and tide almost As imaginary at Dieppe As at the varieties in Paris and the function of the Vaigneur is As purely Ceres Ouiola As that of a Footman on the Box of a coach Aud four. To performs it nevertheless with equal sincerity.

Tho main duty of the Vaigneur appears to to to take Caro that his clients do not rashly go too far out to sea.
