I L LAFAYETTE, GEORGIA, THURSDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER lti, 1880. A CURIOUS CUSTOMER. A Mau Who Wanted to Engage Hoard for Twenty Tears. Yesterday afternoon, shortly nf ter the arrival of the train, a man entered a hotel in thi3 city and ask ed the clerk, who stood busying him«elf with a patent blotter, the terms-upon which he could engage board. ‘‘Owing to the location of your room, sir. Big demand for our room. Feed wrU-*- “I don’t care so much tfiKbut the pulin' part,” replied the man. “I am -10 odd years old, and have been eatiu’ about all my life. It’s gettin’ to be an old thing with me. W.ell. say, give me a respectable room — how much you'll charge ?” “Just yourself, sir?” f “Well, in a manner.'” “Twenty-five dollars per month, in case you are alone.” “You see it is this way : My wife will be with me, but «3 times are pretty tight, I concluded to arrange it in this way : I’ll take breakfast, my wife will take dinner, and we’ll throw up—wet or dry—for supper By that means, we can both get board for one price. I reckon I’m a little the best manager you ever seed.” “Fifty dollars the two.” „ “I don’t underhand that sort o'! 1 ’riihmetic. , Both together, we’d only eat thejmeals allowed for one person. If on’t hurt a bed any more fore two to sleep on it tjn>*/ for one. I’ve got a bed out in the country that was presented to my wife when we got married, and I’ll be dinged if it ain’t just about as good is new. It’s one of these old fashioned beds, with high, yallpr posts with knobs on the tops as big as young pumpkins. I’ll furnish the room with this bed and one chair. My wife can sleep on the floor. I’ve lived in the country all my life, and Bavin’ made a little money last year, I concluded to come into town and splurge a little Thar’s a woman down the courtrv that has been buckin agin my wife, and to git away with her we have concluded to board at a hotel.” • “Fifty dollars per month is our lowest rate.” “How much by the year? I am going’ into the business right.” ■, •‘.Six hundred dollars.” “This is a wholerale business with me. How much for ten yearn ?” “Six thousnrd dollars.” “All right. Mark me down for a snack right now and check it off for twenty years.” ‘See that card ?” said the clerk, pointing to the hotel maxim of per sons without baggage are required to pay in advance. “Oh. I’ve got, the baggage,” and the man lifted up a carpet hag. “That won’t go.” “Won’t you tuke this as secu-i --ty ?” “No; get out of here.” “But I want to board here twenty years.” “Go on away.” “I’ll leave your snide hotel, sir, but first let me show you. He lift ed up his carpet hag, opened it and displayed 850,000 in government bonds. “You can stay, sir” “No I believe not. It takes too much money to put up in this ho tel. Guess I’ll go round and put up in wagon yard.” Ever since Cain gave Able a clip with a club, people have lost money by not observing the laws ofpoliet ness —Little Rack Gazette. The Marriage at Great Hen. Shakespeare loved and wedded a farmer’s daughter. Humboldt married a poor girl, because he loved her. Os course they were happy. Robert Burns married a poor farm girl, with w hom he fell in love j while they worked on a farm to gether. Peter the great of Russia, married a peasant. She made him an ex cellent wife and a sagacious em press. John Adams married a daughter j of a Presbyterian clergyman. Her | father objected on account of John j , beir.g a lawver. j I Andrew Jackson married a wo- j j man whose husband an. still liv ing. She was an amiable woman, and was most devotedly attached to the old warrior and statesman. Washington married, a widow with children. It is enough to say she was worthy of him ; and they lived as married people should live in perfect harmony with each oth - er - Prince Albert and Queen Victoria were cousins, a rare« xa in pie in the long line of English monarch* wherein the martial vows were sa credly observed and sincere afll c tion existed. Milton married the daughter of a country squire, and lie lived with her but a sh*>rt time. He was an austere literary recluse, while she was a rosy, romping country lass, who could not - ndure the restraint placed upon her, so they seperated. Subsequently, however, she return ed. and they lived tolerably happy together. A .Mattel Girl. Do you want to read - this wood picture of a modest girl? I wish more of her class existed, tor the sake of society at large. She is not what ia cubed though |ei»sessed of a quiet attractiveness all of ber own. Her wardrobe is f-hosen for quality according to her Tunancial circumstances ; the colors lare selected with caro, suitable to each other and favorable to her complexion, (von rnav call this taste, so it is, “Modest taste”) tlie style must, of course, tie as near the popular fashion as she dare ap proach, but never quite to the height; when out calling or shopping, she dresses with^neltn-88 and care; if walking she neither moves too fas' or too slow, but glides along with n natural and graceful step which is very bee ming, recognizing her friends by a polite how or weltayne grasp of the band; but there are no demonstrative embrace or gush ing words. She is strictly truthful. When any question is being discus sed, and her opinion is asked, she gives it hesitatingly, not doubt fully , and, if not accepted, never allows herself to utter a contradiction, but calmly and quietly withdraws Iron the discussion, although tier opit ion is not lost or defeated by so do ing on tlie contrary it almost al ways carries weight and effect. — Her acts and words ore unobtru sive, but her influence is great in the home which it is her happiness to adorn. - um ♦ - All’ Throw Yourself In. The Sioux city and Pacific train stopped at Ottawa, and the smart man on tlie train leaned out of the window and shouted to a native : “What is the name of this town?” “Onawa,” replied the native. “On a what?” quered the smart man. Patiently tlie native repeated the name of the hamlet. “Do you want to sell it ?” asked ! the smart man. The patient, native “didn’t know; ’lowed maybe they’d sell if any body wanted to buy it, bail enough." I’ll give you twenty-eight cents for it,” hid the smart man. The native turned his head thoughtfully on one side and con sidered the propostion in silence. F’inally he raised his head with the air of a man who had about made up his mind to trade. ‘ An’ throw yourself in ?” he asde ed. The window came down .with a slam, a tit! a« the train pulled out, there was laughter in Hie cif, but the smart man couldn’t tell iwlieth it was meant fur himself <>g the na tive, although he was inclined to think it was. - r - The Burlington Htncfceye has reached the last straw of fashion. It says : "We have endured with commendable patience the appal ling phantom of the young man who wears two watches. With Christian resignation and patience we have borne with the young man who wears bis watch in the outside pocket of his coat, but when we meet tiie elegant youth who wears his silk embroidered socks outside his Slippers to show the monogram on the toes, there is going to he bloodshed, and don’t you forget to ! remember itA-^a Escape of Sam ..ill. Early Friday morning it was dis covered that Sam Hill had escaped from the asylum at Milledgsville. where he had been sent hv a second jury ll pity atrial of lunacy, after he had he,-n round guilty of the mur der of Simmon* in Atlanta, and sentenced to the penitentiary for life. The following-particulars arc obtained from a gentleman visiting tlie asylum at the time of his es cape : It will he remembered that near ly oyery reporter who has visited the asylum and Hill has descrined »n extraordinary picture which the unfortunate man was painting upon the wall of his room—a picture representing the court room and the various figures therein—himself wife, judge, etc. This picture was mere outlined when last we saw it. Hill appears to have had other in tentions than mere amusement when lie began tlmt picture. He was allowed to have paints and materials necessary for It is work, for no attempt to e«cape was antic ipated by the authorities. His room opetnd into a corridor on th' third floor. At each end of the C tutor there was u door, which • kept, locked. Hills method of cape can only be guessed at I the‘racks l)e left. It is stipi to he as follows: His room was always locked from the ou He wanted to get a key to fit lock, and to get an impression, a square Id. ok'not of the door, la iuu bare, the lock. This block n. > tinder an old piece of canvas, which I hung over the lock for Weeks, and upon which he was accustomed •. I try his colors. The block w- -" d ly replaced, and the 1:1)1 place visible. i Having thus uh'- !l)np, l :)l1 impres sion of his lock , it wms an ensv matter for him lo turn it over to any one of the \ numerous friends wflto visited him. and to receive in return a key a day* later.' with tin- means e.f issuing from his room at his disposal, he doubtless slipped down the ha'l one night and nl tained an impression of the cor ridor door lock, from which n friend likewise obtained for him tl kev.— He had then the means of leaving the asylum at his pleasure, for tin path to tlie front door was unob structed. On the evening of the second, It replied to n little girl who asKed him about his picture, that he had done all he intended to do .vilh it. , The next morning he was s't* > .There was several letters upon his ‘table addressed to various parties. I One to Dr. Powell, stated that dur ing all the time he was allowed to exercise in the front yard, Ii- Inid nev-r sought to escape, because of, his promise, but that the instant In was locked up again that promise ended, and being wrongfully in carcerated, he could not consent m remain. He stated that he would never again enter the asvlum alive. His slippers were found in the (rout yard. His wife’s picture he carried with him — Macon lelcyrayh. A Learned Judge.
