The leader of the party gave his same as Smith, and they represented themselves to the community as stock dealers and mineral ptor. doing business under the same "1. ith i Sons."

For the venerable "Isane Smnith," with his loving board, his iple and o.huam'ik maosawr ad him itern piety, was none other than old "Oaawatonde" John Drown, late of Eameme. Such a fest would be impomsible in the praiet day of the telegraph and the illustrased newspaper prism. But they took every precaution to guard their secret. In all hi. correspondence from the Kennedy farm Brown need the namme of 8mith. even signing that name to his letters ho him family at North Elba. in New York state. As a further precation alt hi. correepondence was amailed and~ received through the poet o~ce at Chanabersburg, Pa. Istter. to him were addreseed to "1. Smith & Some," under cover to John Henri. of that town. Hero also he cannel so be smt the 200 Sharpe's rifle, and the like numaber of Colts revolvers which he had managed to ueoure through the ag. ncy of his Mammachusette friends. A thousand "1'her'" manufactured for him by a blacksmith in Collinsville, Conn., were alsoi shipped to the same point. Theme, during the cour-. of the summer, were transported by slow tlegrees from Chiambersburg to the Kennaedy farm and were stored at the latter place, withut exiciting undue notice from. the easygoing Mary'land neighbors. What was the object of these men? They inieaded to ine'ite the ilayes to insurreotion. They intended to establish and mint~nain ams eis of guerrilla warfare. keeping their headquarters ina the mountains which extend monthwestwardly through the mouthern states. It was the most foothardv enterprise ever undertaken by mortal mian: bras it had been the dream of John Drown's life. From his earliest manhood he had hated slavery with every fiber s~f ht. intense being. He believed that slavery was a crime; that slave owners were criminals. and that he was justitiabie in ameaulting the usetiliar "institution" by force if it coiu'd not otherwise be abolishe. For thirty he had brooded over his seheme in business in Ohio and afterward in Mamehusett. he had worked hard and lived frugally that he might acquire means for this purpose. He visited England to introduce American wools and traveled to continental battlededs to study the art of war. His enrienee ini ==ae was but an incident. His foray intomeonri, where he eised a parel of slaves and esarted them to Canada. was but an experiment. The expedition of 18w was the crystallization of thirty years of planning, scheming hoping, brooding. It is a remarkable fact that not another living soul believed in the feasibility of his schemse as ha actually attempted to carry it out. This is true, both of the men who furnished him the money for expenses and of those who went with him to the death. On Feb 22uar ,1, he had Aret disclosed his at t to F. Banbon Edwin Mroand Gerrit Smith at the house of the latter in Peterboro', N. Y. They attempted to dissuade hiM, but nothing could shake the pur. pose of the old Puritan. Every argument was met ath the tet of scripture: "If God be for us who cap be against us?" smith and Sanborn consulted apart, when the former aid: "You see how it is; our dear old friend has made his mind to this coorse and cannot be turned it. We cannotgive him up to die alone; we must support him. Fred Douglass, i an interview with Brown later, in Chambersburg, warned him that he wasgoig into the Jaws of a steel trap The nu r w with Brown at the yeed parm ly Joined his fortunes without knowing the full extens and detailsof his plans. When these were disclosed they opposed, to a man, the asult upon Harper's Ferry. Again the magnetism of the old man's won will prevailed, and to a man they followed him into the Jaws of the "trap." Tam mieroaro aan. The historic "raid" occurred on the night of Sunday, October 16, 196. About 10 o'clock of that night they approached the town from the Maryland side, captured the watchman who guarded the bridge and took possession of the armory situated upon the bank of the Potomac river. From here a part of their men were sent to occupy the rifle factory, which formed another part of the government plant, situated a half distant upon the Shenandoah river. Another party of the invaders was -sen a few Nilse into the country, where they captured Col. Washigton and some other prominent citizens and brought them and their laves to the armory, where the masters were hald as ndu Perhaps ess oe aotteamp was ad transfor the intoby thrusting into the of each one of the now historic pikes which had been epared for that pr pse.All that night they held They ot the teleraph wires and detained the 1 o'clock train.

The invadere esined thehrheaper of leulhe' Hotel, and when heeatast tmse sme they peenea to ries him if the proprietor of the hotel would furnisk party with breakfast. After some dm=r on the part of the landlord this was done. Early in the day the citizens of the place, having recovered from their surprise, armed themlsives in such manner as they could and set about an active and systematic opposition to the invader. The rife factory was infested. and within a short time the men who had taken poseon of that establishment were driven into the Shnan=doah river. where they all perished by shooting or drowning. except one. By 12 o'clock the remainder of the invaders, under the command of Brown himself. had been surrounded upon all sides in their position at the armory. Up to this time Brown had evidently believed that the prisoners he had secured would serve as hostages for the security of himself and followers, and would secure to them the means of safe retreat whenever he desired to adopt such measure. The futility of this idea became apparent as soon as he attempted to put it into eaecubon. He thereupon selected nine of his most prominent prisoners, and with them and the remainder of his men retreated into the engine house situated in the armory yard. m FATAL, EeTA. That was his fatal mistake. He was now within the trap and the jaws were closed. But there was no thought of surrender. The besieged immediately pierced the walls of the engine house with loopholes, from which they fred upon every armed man who came within ther viso. Some eight or ten of the citizens were wounded, more or less dangerously, and George Turner and Fountain Beckham, two highly respected citizens, were killed. All day the Aght was kept up. During all the night of the 17th the siege of the engine house continued. The mos horrible particulars of that bloody day are detailed by the local chronicles. The death of Fountain Beckham so enraged the citizens that they at once set upon one of the invaders whom they had captured and were holding as a prisoner. dragged him to the bridge and shot him to death. His body fell into the river, where it was visible for days after the awful tragedy. Another one of the raiders escaped from the armory and attempted to wade the shallow Potomac above the town. He was seen by the citizens, and when they fired upon him he fell upon a rock and threw up his hands in token of surrender. One of his --sailante thereupon waded out to where he was lying and deliberately shot him to death. Meanwhile, during the night of the 17th, Col. Bobert E. Lee of the United States army, and who was afterward the confederate general, had arrived from Washington with a force of maarines. Early on the morning of the 18th he sent Lieut. J. E. B. Stuart, who afterward also became a fmus confederate general, to demend the surrender of the invaders. One of the local storice has It that Lient. Stuart was the first to discover their Identity. When admitted to their presence under a flag of truce he ezoisimed to the leader: "Why, ain't you old Oeawatomie Brown of Kan==s= whomn I once had there as a prisoner?" "Yes," was the answer, "but you did not eThe oacer urged hims to surrender, but he declined. saying: "I prefer to die here.'' The omeer withdrew and the amarinas at once assaulted the place.

Most of his followers ware killed, a few escaped and the remainder were, like himself, prisoners in the hands of the marines. So ended the first act In the tragedy. The second followed swiftly and was equally remarkabls in its character. TnaAL mw couvicyrow. The prisoners ware removed to the jail at Charlsetowa, the county seat of Jb'ecrson county. and en the 25th day of October were put upon their trial under indictment charging them with treason, murder and Inciting slavas to ansurrecsion. Of course their conviction was a foregone conclusion. They ware speedily found guilty, and on the 3d day of November Brown was sentenced to be hanged on the 3d of December. It was In many7epe a most remarkable trial Capital eases hae been exceedingly few in the history of our country where trial and conviction have followed so quickly upon the commission of the offense, Within a fortnight from the time when Brown had struck what he belheved to be a righteous blow against what he folt to be the greatest siu of the age he was a condemned felon, with only thirty days between his life and the hangman's noose. During his trial he was brought Into court shackled and suffering from the wounds received when captured. Duriner most of the proceedings ha lay upon his pallet in the court room, the lodge not requiring him to stand reused e eomaal asdI him by the surt Ia the begnng of the trial and was dended later In the preetediag by George H. Ho fee h of e. a othei H t" avafl hisif at the pleaf Whem salled upoby the court to my why etemee t death shoul not be passed upon hi be repled: "In the Brst pha., Ieny everything but what I have 11 along adslaIe iaseded eertaiy to hae made aseen thing ettoat matter, aM I did last winter, when I seat Into Missouri and there took slaves without the mapping of a gun on either side, moved them through the country and finally left them in Canada, I designed to have done the same thing again on a larger scale. That was all I Intended. I never did Intend murder or treason or the destruction of property or to excite or incite slaves to rebellion or to make ineurrectlon. This court acknowledges, as I the validity of the law of God. see a book kissed here which I suppose to be theBible or at least the New Testament. That teaebes me that all things whatsoever I would that men should do to me, I should do even so to them. It teaches me farther to remember them that are in bonds., as bound with them. I endeavored to act up' to that instruction. I My I am yet too young to understand that God is any respecter of persons. I believe that to have interfered as I have done-as I have always freely admitted I have done-in behalf of His despised ror, was not wrong but, right. Now, if it is deemed necessary that I should forfeit my life for the furtherance of the ends of justice, and mingle my blood further with the blood of my children and with the blood of millions in this slave country whose rights are disregarded by wicked, cruel and unjust enactments-I submit; so let it be done." Tae ExactrrIoN. The third aet of the tragedy swiftly followed. No appeal was prayed to the supreme court of the state. notwithstanding it is and has long been the practice to take such appeal in all capital eass, even where the proof is evident and the conclusion foregone, as in this case. It is done as a mere act of humanity in the prieoner's behalf. It is probable that in this eas the defendant did not desire it The tenor of his declarations during the trial and the following thirty days would seem to indicate that he regarded the whole proceedings as a mere formality, about the result of which there could be but one conclusion. It Is more than likely that before his execution Brown came to believe that his death upon the scafold would do more to advance his scheme than would have resulted from the most unqualified success of his carefully brooded campaign of guerrilla warfare. It is doubtful if he would have walked out had the door of his cell been left open during the latter half of those swiftly flying thirty days. He refused religious consolation from the clergymen who visited him on account of their sympathy with the institution of slavery, and on the 2d day of December, surrounded by a large body of armed troops, went unfalteringly to his death. His fellow-prisoners were executed later. Of course these events created the wildest excitement throughout the country, but it will always be impossible to form a definite estimate a. to what influence they actually exerted in precipitating the civil war which so soon followed. Tt ZrrxcTs or Tai nAID. One eminent abolitionist looking down Into Brown's grave on that bleak December day of She funeral at North Elba said, "He has abolished slavery." Thoreau, Theodore Parker and B. W. Emerson landed him as a saint, while Wendell Phillips declared that "the lesson of the hour is insurrection." The slave holders saw in the movement the crystalized fruition of the abolition crsade. How much was behind this visible entering wedge they were unable to judge. Looked at from the impartial standpoint of today the Brown invasion would seem to be a mere episode-a leaf floating upon the swift current of events. The conflict was "Irrepressible." It would have come had John Brown never lived. But would it have come without the idea of which he was the exponent? Many relies of the famous "raid" are shown by the residents. One citizen of Charlestown, the son of Brown's jailor. IL the owner of the Bible which belonged to the old abolitionist, which the latter presented to the father just before the execution. It Ia echap volume, such as sold in that day for W Bents. and shows that many passages weremarhed by Brown in the course of his reading. He seems to have particularly dwelt upon those parts of the Old Testament which in any manner denounce oppression. John Brown "pikes" are also very common welies in and around Harper's Ferry. It is estimated that enough of these have been sold as genuine to supply a large army. These were the weapons with which BrQwnexpected to arm the untutored negroes that were expected to dock to his standard. Another enterprising citizen shows with considerable pride the Identical cook stove which served the culinary needs _f the party during their sojourn at the Kennedy farm. The old engine house known se long as "John Brown's Fort" has been sold to some Chicago parties, who have torn it down and removed it bodily to that city as a nucleus for a "John Brown" exhibit during the period of the world's fair. MILTOX T. Anaxxe. An Extmordinary Dies. Frem the London Daily News. A German contemporary states that a very peculiar patient is at present under treatment at the Augusburg State Hospital. A man, aged forty, had set himself the task of swallowing some 960 fruit stones Having finished this extracrdinary meal, he experienced excruciating pain. While under treatment on the first day n the h.osptal the medical men succeeded In removing 200 haxlenut atones. The man had taken all this trouble to pa his life in jeopardy for a wager of five shilling. Marsh Landa Made Valuable. From the Boston Transcript. Time was In this state that the marsh lands were considered a. of so little value that the more a man owned of them the poorer he was reckoned. Of late years, however, the development of the cranberry Industry ham modified the views on this point, and farmers are speculating on the possibility of finding other profitable uses for the marshes and meadows. High scienta authority has declared that most of the swampy and boggy lands aboutthe state not available for cranberry cnlture can be converted Into soil for the cultivation of berries and vegetables i great variety. The demand for such products is yearly growing, even faster than the population. The systematic development of these industries might have the wholesome effect to draw from the cities the host of neople who live in the close, stuffy quarters that our civilization provides for the workingman. As In Holland, France and Florida they have accompliahed brilliant result. with sinmilar lands, there Is nothing fantastic in the suggestious here made. What Was He te De. From Puck.

Besides, it's not my fault, quite. I'd leave the carriage if I could." She-"Oh, I'm sure I don't care! Why should I care-for anything? I'm far too miserable." [A Aerce sob.] He (seriously)-"I am sorry for you. You seem in terrible trouble. Is there anything I can do for you? I hardly like to intrude but no man-no gentleman-could see a lady in such distress without offering his help." She (gratefully, but with fresh tears)-"You are very good, very kind, but if you would please leave me alone-leave me to my own thoughts-." He-"They cannot be pleasant thoughts. I'm sure. Far better look at the papers. Will you have 'Punch' or this week's World? They're both here." "She-"I could not see to read them, thank you." He-"Then let me talk to you."

She (laughing,in spite of herself)-"No,please. That would make us both look ridiculous. I will accept the inevitable. I know some FitsHughs [a pause]-but I don't like them." He-"A bad lookout for me! Hope they're no relations of mine. What part of the county?" the-"Oh near us; near-. But I have hardly met them; only I hear such things about them from my guardian; it is he who is always abusing them.

I did not know what to do. Let me t you something-a cup of hot tse."

Second Omeal-"An' I'l watch my gonoe. man." [Lord Fits-Hugh returns, followed by a page boy, with tea, fruit. cakes]. Lord F. (entering the carriage)-"Here, haud It all over-pay with that and keep the rest. What do you want? You can't come in here (to a station superintendent in uniform). This compartment isengaged. We wish to be alone." Mr. Perks (coolly, and rather insolently)That is why I am coming in." Lord F. (haughtily)-"We'u soon sue about that. Call the station---" Mr. P.-"The station master himself gave me my orders. I am to travel up to London with this young lady and her-her-her (at a loss)that don't matter much. The omoers of the court shall settle that when we get to King's Cross. So make way, please, or you'll both be detained." [The train moves on. Lord F. looh in nib, amazement at Miss Brignolles, who by this thme has quite recovered. She is drinking her tea with great relish, her face mest demure, but a merry twinkle in her eyes.] Miss B. (looking up suddenly and meeting his bewildered gaze)-"I'm afraid it's rather serous. The court won't be tried with-" Mr. Perks-"As you'll And." Lord F. (turning on him hotly)-"Look here, leave us alone or I'll pitch you out of the window. You ye no station master now at your back. (To Vim Bsimnolles, in a whisper). What does it all mean?

True lover, always held each other's hands. Didn't Capt. Bell ever do it? Lucky dog, how I wish I were he; that is, If you sti care for him." Miss B. (emphatcally)-"I don't.

MUSIC DOTS NOT SUNDUnE The Average Chareb Choir and eanse There is Tremble fer the Mists. Pie. the Beston Advertber. A subject which has been repeatedly discussed at various ministerial gatherings in Boston is that of church music. When that topic is under discussion much Is said about Gregorihe, antiphonal, Anglican and other styles of music, but often very little indeed is said about church choirs. And yet it can hardly be denied that church choir. are often very important bodies in a certain way. Many a minister has spent more painful hours in considering questione relating to his church choir than he has devoted to his sermon during some anhap chriod when there has been some trouble Happy, thrice cthe eirgyman who has never known what it to be confronted by an angry spirit of disnsion in his choir, if indeed there has ever been a clergyman of much exrience who can truthfully avow that so blissan ignorance is his. Exactly why this should be so, who can say? Philosophers, from the time of Socrates down to the present age of Herbert Spencer, have dared to grapple with knotty questions, but not one has dared even to attempt to solve the riddle which the church choir problem presents. There is good reason to believe that lanthippe sang in one of the most fashionable temple choirs of her day, but the shy way in which Socrates avoids all reference to the subject shows that he had a good deal of horse sense after all. Of course there are church choirs and church chols. Many get along year after year without a single "spat," and others are wrecked on the Scylla of a dispute with the pastor or the Charybdis of a quarrel among themselves before the choir has been in existence a year. Personally the members of most church choirs are leasing, intelligent, amiable and reined people, as a rule. AND YET arvArnim. 31r3T. Perhaps there is, as some assert, a something in music that engenders rivalries. Else why should one soprano speak slightingly of another, who gets the lion's share of the "solos;" or why should the leading basso gaze with a poorly concealed sneer at the tenor, when the tatter has reached a high note, after a breathless struggle? Yet according to the facts of all time music is supposed to have a refining, softening and emollient effect rather than an enraging one; but from the time that Apollo and Marsyas. had their little eangerfest the facta too often tend to create an opposite inference so far as musicians are concerned. Perhape if the flev. Lamb Agnus of Weeping Canon, N. M., knew as much about chinch choirs as he does now he would not have attempted to start a male choir at that place. If the reports of the Weeping Canon experiment are correct, Mr. Agnus had but recently left a theological school and had more enthusasm than practical knowledge, but there can be no doubt than his Intentions were the best. It was maid many times In Weeping Canon that the clergyman "meant well, but had no 'sabe.' " At all events, according to the generally cred-. ied accounts of the affair, Mr. Agnus set about forming a male choir soon after his arrival in Weeping Canon. At his personal and urgent solIcitation about every cowboy and miner In that part of Sierra county who could sing or who thought he could sing was taken In the choir on trial. The first few rehearsals were a source of many sleepless nights to Mr. Agnus, but matters finally progressed to such a stage that it was annonnced that a concert would be given by the choir on an evening In the early part of June. It was generally supposed that an influentIal and pp ular Individual who was known as "Chlorid Jack" would be given the leading part, because of his remarkably pwerful If not particularly sweet voice; but WeepIng Canon was startled by the announcement that a young ranchman, Pamili Pralawas to be the star of the evnn.I wee noticed that "Chloride" wee abeent from the rehearsals after that, and many et the older and wiser members of the choir at oce resigned from the organigation, A smoTouW onuenAo. The concert was held on the evening as announced, but what the Weeping Canon Coyote, the local weekly, described as an "unafortunate misunderstanding" served to shorten the program noticeably. After the choir had sung two anthems, which were vigorously applauded, Sr. Peraltee started in on a solo. He had barely finished a brief recitative when a double-barreled gun was thrust through one of the open windows and a heavy load of buckshot was 'is charged at the soloist. As the buckshot "scattered" toea great extant several parsons in the audience were more severely injured than Sr. Peraltee wee, and the injure'd ones made haste to whip out their aix-shooter.. A large portion of the audience amade a rush for the door; amany other. dropped quickly to the floor and crawled under the benchee; some vivacIous cowboy "shot out" the lights, and, to quote the Weeping Canon Cl o14'. "the scene that followed beggared desrition." About 9 o'clock that evening a young man in clerical garb hailed the Hermoca stage excitedly and clambered In. His muddy and disheveled attire was not such as the Riev. Lamb Agnus usually wore, but he was the individuaL. He was afterward Induced to return to the Weeping Canon Church. after a feew weeks had elapsed; but for several years since his return he has Insisted upon purely congregatitoal inging. More Like It.
