JEFFERSON DAVIS’ ROMANCE.
How ho Eloped with Ool. Zachary Tay
The first marriage of Jefferson
Davis was of a somewhat romantic
character. After graduating at
West Point, he was ordered to Fort
Crawford, Prairie du Chien, AVis.,
the post then commanded by Col.
Zachary Taylor. The daughter of
the latter, Miss Tallie Knox Taylor,
at once fell desperately in love with
the handsome and intelligent young
lieutenant. The rash pair eloped
one night and were married. Col.
Taylor was enraged and declared
with an oath as strong as ever used,
that under no circumstances would
he ever forgive Davis, or become rec
onciled to his daughter's disobedience.
But sixteen years passed. “Old
Zach” was in command of the l nited
States army in Mexico, and serving
under him was Col. Jefferson Davis
at the head of the famous First Mis
sissippi Rifles. At the battle of Bue
na Avista this regiment covered itself
with glory. Davis, while leading one
of its charges at a critical moment,
fell, severely, and it was supposed,
mortally wounded. lie was borne
from the field. That evening (ion.
Taylor, mounted on “Old AA’hitcv,”
paid him a visit. Dismounting, he
stepped to the colonel’s cot and ex
tended his hand.
“Jeff,” he said, “you have saved
the day with your glorious rifles. Let
bygones be bygones! Knox (tlie
name by which lie always called his
daughter) knew your worth and met
tle better than I did.”
They shook hands. From that
moment, through the war, and indeed
until the death of President Taylor,
the warmest friendship existed be

not to give Mr. Smvthe any more

WOWFV AND ITIECE.
The reason why a woman is afraid of a
mouse is a profound mystery—indeed, it has
never been very closely proven that she is.
Ilut some women are constantly in such a
nervous, irritable condition that the slightest
thing annoys and startles them. The cause of
this unfortunate state of affairs is usually
some functional derangement; some distress
ing or painful irregularity, some derange
ment or peculiar weakness incident to her
sex; or, it may bo due to inflammation, ul-
