THE EVENING STAR. CLOVLKSI^, THE MORMON> A Eemanrr . By Art emus W ard. CHAPTER I. THE MORMON 8 DEPARTURE The morning on 'which Reginald Gloverson was to leave Great Salt Lake City with a mate i tram, dawned beautifully. Reginald Gloverson was a young and thrifty M jrmon, with an interesting family of twenty joung and handsome wives. His unions had never been blessed with children. > As otten as once a yar he nsed to go to Omaha, In Nebraska, with a mule-train, lor foods; but altbon?ii he had performed the | r.i her perilous journey many times with entire safety, his heart was strangely sad on this particular morning, and filled with gloomy | forebodings. The time for his departure had arrived. Tho j high spirited mnles were at the door, impatient- j ly champing their bits. The Mormon stood sadly among his weeping wives. " Dearest ones," he said, "I am sineularly j sad at heart this moraine; but do not let this j depress you. The journey is a perilous one but?pshaw ! I hare always come back safely heretofore, and why should I fear Beside-, I know that every night, as I lay down on the ! bright starlight prairie, your bright faces will come to ice in my dreams, and make my slum bers 9Wfetand gently. You, Emily, withyour mild blue eyes; and you, Henrietta, with your splendid black hair; and you, Nelly, withyour hair so brightly, beanllfully golden; and yon, Mollie, with your cheeks so downy: and yon, Betsey, with your wine red lips?far more delicious. tnough, than any winp I ever tasted? and yon, Maria, with your winsome voice: and you, Susan, with your?with your?that is to say, Susan, with your and the other thirteen of yon. each so good and beautiful, will come to me In sweet dreams, will you not, Dearestists?" ??Our own," they lovingly chimed, "we will!" "And so farewell! cried Reginald. "Come to my arms, my own !" he said, "that is, as many of you as can do It conveniently at once, for I must away.-" He folded several of them to his throbbing breast, and drove sadly away. But he had not gone far when the trace of the i off-hind mule be ame unhitched. Dismount ing, he essayed to adjust the trace; but ere he had f&irlv commerced the task, a singularly refractory aninvil?snorted wildly, and kicked Reginald'fright.'ully in the stomach. He arose with difficulty and tottered feebly towards his mother's house, w hich was near by, tailing dead in her yard, with the remark, "Dear Mother. I've come home to die!" ?? ?o 1 see," she said: "where's the mnles 7" Alas 1 Reginald Gloverson could give no an swer. In vain the heart-stricken mother threw herself upon his inanimate form, crying, " Oh my son?my son ! only say where them mnles is, and then yon mayilie if yon want to!" In vain?in vain! Reginald had ras5ed on. | CHAPTER IT. Fi'NKRAL TRAPPINGS. The mules were never found. Reginald's heart-broken mother took the body home to her uniortunateson's widows. But tx'lore hrr arrival she discreetly sent ahoy to bnst tho news gently to the afflicted wives, which he did by informing them in a hoarse whisper, that their "old man had gone in." The wive? felt very badly indeed. "He was devoted to me,'' sobbed Emily. "And to me," said Maria. "Yes," said Emily, "he thought considerably j of j on, bnt not so much as he did of me.' "I say he did!" { "And I say he didn't!'" "He did!' "He didn't!" ??Dcn't l^vk 6 ?i#, with your t quint eyee!" ? * shake your red head at me.'" ? ?Sisters!" said the black-haired Henrietta, j cease this nnseemly wrangling. I, as Reg inald's til st wile, shall strew flowers on his * von vnV s-nitl Susan, "I, as his last ! wife, shall s'.re?? f??>w?rs on his grave. It'6/*y ' business to strew!' "You shan't, so there!" said Henrietta. "Yon bet I will," said Susan, with a tear- '0 snflnsed cheek. ??Well, as for me, saul the practical Betsey, t ?'1 ain't on the Strew, much, but 1 shall ride at 1 the head of the funeral procession." "Not if I've ever been introduced to myself, t yon wont," said thegolden-haired Nel!v:"that's i iny po.-ition. Yon bet your bonnet-strings it is!"' ; "Children," said Reginald s mother, "yen j must do some crying, you know, on the day of tlie funeral; and how many pocket-handker < hers will it take t? go Tound? Betsey, yon and j Nelly ought to make one do between j oy." ? "1 11 tear her eyes out ii she penetrates a sob on ray liandkercher!" said Nelly. %'-v. ? "Dear daughters-in-law." said Reginald's mother, "bow vn^-eemly is this angtr. Mules is five hundred iollars a span, and every tVf'n tucal mule my poor hoy had nas been gobbled up bv the red m;m. I knew when my Reginald staggered into the door-yard that he was on the Die, but if I'd only t'hunk to ask him about them mules ere bis gentle spirit took -would have been lonr thousand dollars in our pcckets, and no mistake! Excuse those real tears, but you've never lelt a parent's feelin's." ??It's aii oversight." sobbed Maria, "Don't blame n^!" chapter in. in sr. to dust. The funeral passed off in a very pleasant j manner, nothing occuringto mar the harmony ' ot th?- occasion. lly a happy thought ol Reg inald's mother the wives walked tothe grave ! twenty a-breast, which rendered that part of ! the ?ertroony thoroughly impartial. ? #*#** T1 at night the twenty wives, with heavy hearts, sought their respective cenches. Hut no Reginald occnpied those twenty respective vou. het?Reginald would nevermore linger all n'ght in blissful repose in those twenty respec tive conches?Reginald a head wonld never more press the twenty respective pillows of tfco e twenty respective couches?never, never more! In another house, not many leagues from the House of Mourning, a grey-haired woman was ?weeping passionately. "He diedi" she cried, "be dnid, without sigerfyin', jn any respect, where them mules went to!" CIIAPTBS IV. MARRIED AGAIN. Two years aresnpposed to elapse between the third and fourth chapters of this original Amer ican romance. A manly Mormon, one evening, as the sun was preparing to set among a select apartment of gold and crimson clouds in the western hori zon?although for that matter the snn has a right to "?et" where it wants to, and so, I may add. has a hen?a manly Mormon, I say, tap pf d gently at the door of the mansion of the late Reginald Gloverson. The door was opened by Mrs. Susan Glover son. ??Is this the house ol the widow Gloverson!" the Mormon asked. "It is,"' said Susan. ?-And how many is there of shel" inquired tl?e Mormon. ??There is about twenty of her, including me," courteously returned the lair Susan. "Can I tee her?" "You can!" "Madam," he softly said, addressing the twenty disconsolate widows, "I have seen part ol you before! And although I have already twenty-flve wives, whom I tenderly respect and care for. I can truly say that I never felt love's holy thrill till I saw thee! Be mine?be mine!" he enthusiastically cried, and we will show the world a striking illustration of the beauty and truth of the noble lines, only a good deal more so? " Twenty-one ^ouls -a i th a single thought. Twenty-one hearts that beat as one!"' They were united, they were! Gen tie reader, does not the moral ot this ro mance show that?does it not, in tact, show that however many there may be of a young widow woman, or rather does it not show that whatever number of persons one woman may consist of?well, never mind what it tkou t. Only this writing Mormon romance is confus ing to the intellect. You try it and see. 1 PRIZES CASHED N All legalized lotteries. Information riven.
