The door was opened as if by magic and 1 a servant politely asked hi mto walk in. Miss Emily was all alone ta the parlor and would be delighted to see him. Oh Lord! Here was a fix! Going into a dark parlow with a pretty girl alone! It was too late to retreat. Miss Emily was sitting all alone. Being perfectly convinced that no choice was left him, int othe dark room he walkedf, or rather slided. All was perfect chaos to his eyes for a moment; but only for a moment, and then from the deepest gloom came forth an angel voice, bidding him welcome and draw near. To obey the order-was but the work of a moment. He never dreamed of the obstacle Fate had thrown in his way. He knew full well the stream of love had many ripples; but full grown snags;entered^not into his calculationf-Jfudge therefore his astonishment *i.being tripped^up almost at the fair one'si feet, t>y av«at •tool with pleatooricl^jtt which chsKbie or^a .cyefoss servant riaa plaSjAcroMft road to'happihess—over hesWerit.-i'pn* as the tailor had not allowed for an extra tension of the muscles and sinews, he not only procured 1 a tumble, but felso a compound fracture of the •black pants aforesaid, said fracture extending all across that point which came in closest contact with the chair. Having picked himself up as carefully as circumstances would allow, and a smothered laugh of Miss Emily's not setting him forward any, he at last succeeded in reaching his chair and drawing his coat tails to prevent a disagreeable .exposure, set himself down with as much grace as a bear would be expected toexhibit when re"quested to dance on nettles.

When the first Hempstead cottft Wttt in session in June, 1819, the eOtinty of Hempstead embraced a large plrt of the territory that is now the «oun* ties of Nevada, Pike, Clark, Little River, LaFayette and Howard. The third day of this court was spent In determining the boundaries of the several townships that were, to be formed but of the whole, which was then known as the township of Little Missouri. . Out of the township of Little Mi»- touri, which the record oltti was bounded by the county lines of that time, were formed the townships Of Ozan, Saline, Clay, Missouri, f Little Missouri and Pecan. ; ; The court record of the day s pj | ceedings, June 23, 1819, follows.- ; Court met pursuant to adjournment present as before. The court taking into'consideration the vast territorial extent of the present township of Little Missouri, being now bounded by the present coun ty lines, it Is ordered that the follow ing townships be laid off and bounded as follows:* An illustration He: Life is.Unjust;*sorrife get everything that is good iand\beautiful and others get./ey,erytK^gfcthat is ugly She: Yes^ur^ffi^rrlage* is an example—you got" me, but I only got you.—Passing Show. ~ side'of tfc* street would inevit- ^bow to him,'thinking that he was jring to catch his eye.

As he did so the fracture opened, anff behold there lay, as the lady supposed, her property. It was the work of an instant to seize the corner, and exclaim, "Here it is Sir, you needn't trouble yourself, Raise a little, it's under you." Alas! the "tail" was told; no escape; nothing short of a special interposition of providence could save his shirt. But what should 1 he do? Another and another, a stronger pull, evincing on the part of the lady a praiseworthy determination to obtain the lost "drygoods," coupled with the support to "get up Sir; you are sitting on it, determined him, and in the agony of the moment grabbing with both hands a fast disappearing j strip of linen which encircled his neck, he exclaimed in heart broken accent, "For God's sake, Miss Emily, leave my shirt collar."
