SOME MEN OF THE SOUTH. Remarkable Tales Told of Noted Soil L'a erners and Said to Be True. Washington Oorresimudence of the Dhihidel pkUl Timer.. The favorite rendezvous of the statesmen of South Carolina in Charleston is the Charleston Hotel, still grand, gloomy and peculiar, " ith its large pillars and its spa eious piazzas and square area, like the Louvre Hotel in Paris. This hotel is still owned by the Keltt family, one of its most distinguished members, i-zrtvrenee M. Keifct, being well remembered for Ins assault, in the Senate chandler of the United States upon Charles Sumner when a Sena tor in Congress, an occurrence second only to the effect of the guns trained on Fort Sumter in firing the Northern heart and causing the late unpleasantness, now. thanks to the rapid growth of the new South, only to be commented on or criticised by the his torians who are pleased to wander in the dim aisles of the past. In the Charleston Hotel, occasionally wet ting their “whistles’’ with corn whisky, the favorite South Carolina beverage, could lie found during the sessions of the United States Court two men still prominent in the politics of the old Palmetto State. One was Judge R. B. Carpenter, the other Samuel Melton, then and now United States District Attorney of that State. JUDGE CARPEXTEK Judge Carpenter's history has been varied and romantic. He was prosecutor of the Picas in one of the interior counties of Ken tucky, and first won his legal spurs through bis brilliant prosecution of Matt. Ward,who was tried for the murder of Butler, a school teacher, educated at Hanover College, Ind., who had inflicted personal chastisement upon a brother of llatt Ward, who was a scholar in Butler’s Institute in Louis ville. Ward was acquitted after a des perate legal battle, contested inch by inch, and it is said that it was in this famous case that Tom Marshall got even with a Kentucky Judge. Tom Marshall was the brother of Humphrey Marshall, onco a member of Congress, and chiefly remem bered, as to his military career, for tho rapidity of the movements of his command in getting away from Gen. Garfield tip the Tennessee valley, JGarfield having driven Marshall before his srfia.ll but victorious army out of the State of Tennessee. Tom Marshall > • the wittiest man Kentucky ever produced, and perhaps tho brainiest, and he perished intellectually, like many another child of genius, from the rapid growth of his fondness for blue-grass whisky. He was always a political rival of Rev. Dr. Robert J. Brecuenridge, the fminent patriot, whose dignified presence as tempo rary president of the Baltimore Convention, which nominated Abraham Lincoln for a second term, is still remembered. Tom Marshall was fond of saying “that, he and Rev Dr. Breokenridge early in life had taken different texts ” Tom’s “was the bottle and Dr. Breckenridge’s was the Bible, ’’ and certainly, added Tom, “the reverend doctor will not deny that I have close ad hered to my text.’’ In the county in which the immortal Tom chiefly practiced at the bar an erratic jurist named Judge Nuttle presided and whenever Dan Rice’s circus arrived the Judge always announced: ‘This court will now adjourn to see the elephant swim the Ohio river.” BORROWING OF THE JUDGE. In the cause celebre, where the defendant was tried for murder, possibly the Matt Ward case, the Judge admitted some testi mony which thoroughly disgusted Tom Mar shall over the barrister’s objections. He jumped to his feet, not fully recovered from a big game of draw poker the night before, and said in anger: “Judge, do you know that Pontius Pilate convicted Jesus Christ by admitting just such testimony as that?” The Judge quickly replied: “Clerk, fine Mr. Marshall SSO for contempt of court.” Tom rase, and, steadying his somewhat vibratorv motions against the railing front ing the Judge’s bench, with mock gravity opened: “May it please your honor! It has been some months since I have seen SSO of my own money. I beg your honor to lend me the money with which to pay the fine!” “The court” was astounded, but catching its judicial breath, replied, sotto voce: “Mr. Clerk, upon reflection, the court is inclined to remit Tom Marshall’s fine, as the State of Kentucky is better able to lose that SSO than the court is!” To return to Judge Carpenter. He held office as a disbursing Treasury agent in Chi cago under Buchanan, and espoused the Union side during the war. In a street encounter with a Kentuckian in Covington, who had taken mortal offense ut something Carpenter had said in some pyrotechnic flight of his untamed oratory, Carpenter was shot through the body with a bullet from a navy revolver, but after being given up fbr dead rapidh recovered, and made as manv and as formidable stump speeches for the Kentucky Democracy as he did before he lay at death’s door. Carpenter did not n9ed reconstructing, but went South with the war tide of migra tion seeking fortune, and was made a judge in Columbia, 8. C., of one of the State courts. He was an inveterate faro player fmm the days of his youth, and the green baize table had the same fascination for the eloquent Kentuckian that a cocking main possesses for the sporting citizen of Georgia or South Carolina. It is told of Judge Car penter (the ad literatim accuracy of the ftory I do not vouch for) that, while on the bench, a venerable “gambolier” ol'Columbia Wrested his colored servant, the faro table "lookout” for stealing S2OO worth of blue chips.” The ease came on for trial. The learned Judge professed entire ignorance of the character and value of the blue “ivory,” and told the aged “sport” he was at a loss to fix the exact value or the blue but valuable countere of fortune. The old gambler waxed indignant. “Jedge.’ he said, “what’s the use of you’re a-foolk'. Many a time you've coppered th<* nee in "my place and right well you know what’s the value of them 'ere blue chips." The chop-fallen disciple of Blaekstdne und exponent of values asked no more ques tions in that case. A MAN OK LEARNING. Judge Carpenter, in spite of his sporting proclivities, is a gentleman of real learning, J capital diner out and an ever-welcome habitue of the Washington clubs. Ha Ims always been close to eg-Senator Steve Dor wy, and cut a respectable figure in the star rouUi trials or. Dorsey’s side. Carpenter, since the exit of Artndr's administration, has gone hack to South Carolina and has subsided from tho public gnzo, but is likely ,l!*'' vc J°i' i n t° n roaiing Cleveland man in i Rut, for his devotion to the faro table ~ Judge, who is a man of Infinite humor, jwnsnig address, a good scholar and a ri;>e unvj-er, would have boon at the verv head anu front of his profession, liio law ‘in the State of South Carolina. " •tuout tho insinuatin'} manners or graceful address of Senator butler, of South Carolina, and without claiming tho social graces of Senator Wade Hampton, one of e most delightful raconteurs, scholars, or *ws and soldiers of the l’almetto State, is -tii. Samuel Melton, appointed United ,District Attorney by President V ,1, , for the State of‘South Carolina. • uUm is over nix feet in hoightli, dresses sober broa/lelotli always, and, like °Jd Arkansas gentleman bu rn i faizf * by Aliiert Pike, is always I U J.‘ y ’ to take his matutinal cocktail.

And a more difficult place no native Carolinian was ever called on hi till. At first the Dis trict Attorney’s social ostracism was com plete, and his old friends in rhe service of the gray flatly refused to countenance him or to receive him socially. But Meltou went on like a star, unhasriug and unresting, per formed his duty and succeeded, as Burke says. In making “power gentle and obedi ence liberal," and soon won the respect and even Die affection of those who were loudest in denouncing the- South Carolina gentle man for accepting office under the Federal administration. LUCK AT CARDS. Mr. Melton’s elegant homo is a rosp-em bowered cottage at Columbia, where he has perhaps the finest law library in the State. Like the typical Southerner, he isnotaverse to a quiet game of cards, and being a player of extraordinary nerve, many interesting stories are told of his marvelous luck in scooping in “jack-pots” or successfully call ing the turn. One summer, after a long and arduous winter in trying government eases in Charleston, and lieing a prey to inflam matory rheumatism, Melton went to New York to try a change of air. “To play faro successfully,” he says, “the player must neither drink nor smoke.” He was stopping at theGilsey House and “honors were easy, with a comfortable bank account, and being too sick to read and disinclined to talk, he hied himself to John Morrissey’s game, near the Hoffman House, and asked the dealer if there was any limit to the play that dnv. “Not for you,” replied the dealer. Mel top placed a SIOO bill on the ace. It turned up, and his pile of blue chips increased to S2OO. The dealer looked nervously at the South Carolinian, but he made no sign. In two turns the ace showed again ana away from the “box.” Melton’s pile increased to *4OO. Still the nervy lawyer chewed his tookpiek and said nothing. The green baize showed six cards and two aces in the box. Next turn dis closed the inevitable ace on Melton’s side of the silver box, and his “pot” increased to SBOO. Then the counsellor’s face was as un moved as that of a sphinx. A call turn now engaged the nervous dealer’s attention, but Melton sat back cool as an iceberg and said nothing. The turn came—a three anci one ace. The plucky lawyer's pile increased on the ace to $1,600. “I am riot feeling well,” said the amateur sportsman, “and I reckon I’ve had enough fun for the day. Dealer, I reckon I’ll cash in my chips!” Old gamblers sitting around the board said that in a quarter of a century they had never seen more nerve or luck in a single “deal.” A WONDERFUL STREAK OF LUCK. Melton tells, with great gusto, of a still more wonderful streak of Tuck he had in Charleston with Grady, the father of the now celebrated editor, then a bitter foe of Wade Hampton. Grady was a strongman, intellectually and physically, as Editor Grady is, and with a brilliant companion the three bon virants undertook to have a day off and sailed out from the Charleston Hotel after a bountiful breakfast of straw berries in March, pompano, the most deli cious of Southern fish, good coffee and Vir ginia “pone.” This was a day when the trio meant, like Pike's historical fine old Arkansas gentle man, “unless some d—d contingency inter vened,” to “bust a faro bank.” Melton s party, the trio of amateur play ers, had SI,OOO between them, wliich was religiously divided up, as all Gaul was, into three parts. They were intent on big game. They round. The war was just over and two Northern gamblers “opened” in Charles ton with a roulette table and the inevitable and painted “thirteen keerds” that have made as much havoc in a hundred years as an army with banners bent on red” ruin to smiling villages and fertile plains. The party of the third part was soon snnffed out and his capital of $333 twined with the woodbine. Grady had wonderful luck. At one time he called the turn for S2OO and picked up SI,OOO. It is a misfor tune of faro that one deal may capture a fortune for the man behind the'table. But Grady’s “stacks” grew till he had $5,000 lie fore him in “chips.” He bet SI,OOO on the king with a copper. He lost. Luck turned. The balance of the deal he didn’t, win a bet. But at the end of the “call” he cashed in $1,500 worth of ivory. He rose to go. In vain did Melton persuade him to stay by and see him “bust the bank.” Grady, with his rare good sense, had enough, and while Melton was absorbed in the new desk he quietly slipped to the depot and struck for Columbia (the State capital) with his $333 increased to the snug sum of $1,500. Melton played till dark, sometimes having $5,000 before him, and once by two fatal strokes of fortune with his capital re duced to s>oo. But luck turned in a lucky “call” for S3OO in which he picked up $1,500 for his stake of S3OO. His theory was to play heavily on the bank’s money, and he. pressed his luck till the “boss” gambler had no more chips on the board, anil grew white around the mouth, as he reached into his in -side vest pocket for a SI,OOO bill to pay Melton’s winnings. At the end of that deal, Mr. Banker said slyly: “General, the jig's up, the bank’s busted; let’s liquor.” The lawyer rose slowly, ordered a couple of bottles of champagne, straightening him self, for he had not left his chair for five hours, and when his chips were all in he folded down in a capacious pocketboOk $10,200 and the bank was broken. Tlie news soon went by grapevine tele graph that Melton and Grady had broken B.’s liank. The gamblers thirsted for re venge. Melton treated all the boys at the Clarleston till midnight, and then it was whispered that B. had opened bis bank again. Grady was safe at the State capital, and Melton’s friends, full of symposium juice and with the fire of a thoroughbred, said: “Old boy, let’s go to the jungle again and strike the tiger in his den.” They went, they saw. they didn’t eonquor. And at early dawn the tall, splendid form of Tom Melton could have been seen at the desk of the hotel clerk, saying: “Mr. C-l-l-erk, g-give me S2O on m-m-my ch-check; I r-r-reckon I’ll g-go li-home.” The grave But high-spirited counselor rarely speaks of his bad luck, but in one hour he was $10,200 “out.” Homesick for Normandy. Hwii the Bolton Transcript. Not very long ago two ! tidies stood before a picture of n sunny hill slopo, up which marched tiie golden ranks of a field of wheat. Two brawny reapers—one a man, the other a woman—were beginning an at tack on the rear guard of the golden army. Just above the topmost ridge of the wheat rose a line of cherry trees, and peeping alovo the flank was the top of a farmhouse chimney. “Oh, that’s Norman!” said the first lady. “You never see that sky outside of Nor mandy.” “Yes,” said the second lady, in a tone that, hinted of a polite doubt. •‘Those figures are Norman peasants to the life, too, and the irtiy the cherry tree* cr<>wn the ridge. Oh, it makes me tnink of my summer among the Normans.” She sighed the sigh of the traveler who has come I jack to the Unitod States and found it hollow. The second lady said noth ing. but had she known that the wheat field represented was not five miles from the State House, and that the Norman peasants wore Farmer Moriarty and his industrious daughters, she must have felt that her doubt was vindicated. • Disease and Death Force their way into many a household that might be protected from their Inroads by the simple precaution of keeping in the house that benign family medicine and safeguard of bealt h, Hostetler's Stomach Hitters.
