on the Scaffold.
Regina, Jan. 18.���When the sun
rose yesterday morning Regina jail
loomed wild and wierd from tho blizzard of the preceding day, as well as
gloomily, as the keen, cold rays fell
on its sombre walls. Sheriff Benson
had fixed 8 o'clock as thu hour for
the execution of John Morrison,, the
Moosomin murderer.
A few minutes to 8 o'clock Had-
elide reminded .the sheriff that the
time was close at hand. Morrison
had eaten nothing, having refused to
breakfast, and a stimulant wus suggested. This wus prepared by Dr
Edwards. The culprit, however, refused to drink it, and he was
brought into the corridor or lobby
by Turnkey A. Dunnett, who stood
beside bim whilst Radcliffe perform
cd the pinioning operations, Morrison submitted to these without a
tremor, and the procession to the
scaffold was then formed. Morrison
was placed on the trap door, the
rope was put around his neck, aud
ns Radcliffe was putting tho black
cap over the man's face the culprit
suld-   "I wish to say something.'
Radcliffe replied: "Then look quick
about it," and he turned the man
round to fuce the sheriff.
Tho last words of the man were as
follows : "I would like lo sny something for the good of the world. I
have lived a sinful life. It is foolish
to do this and I hope my life will be
a warning to others. Although 1
have been very wicked, yet 1 know
God of His great mercy will forgive
tho greatest of sins and the deepest"
ot crimes. Life at best is very short
nnd I hope thut whut I have done
will be a warning lo others to live
that short life in a different way to
what I have done. Lifo, I say, is
short and the sword is always hanging over us, und we do not know
how soon it will drop. It is not
worth while to be sinful, then. Thut
is all I have to say. Good bye and
God bless you all."
Once again, ho turned round, Radcliffe pulled the black cap over his
face, and Captain Olllam slowly and
solemnly recited the Lord's prayer.
At the concluding petition Morrison
disappeared through the trap door,
and u black flag floating from the
top of tho jail announced lo the
world that all was over. St.aff-Sergt.
Heflernen then convened a coroner's
jury within the Jail, The evidence
showed thut the vertibrao of the
neck was broken close to the base
of the skull. The loss of consciousness must have beon instantaneous,
though Lhe heart's action did not
cease until thirteen minutes after the
drop. The jury brought in a verdict
that death had been caused by hanging during the process of a legal sentence legally executed.

-Post Wheeler In New York Pma
Long enough before I, a lieutenant or
Infantry, mnde my flrst trip across the
great Staked plains of Texas as an escort to a couple of civil engineers 1 had
heard of tbe death bird of tbe desert.
No living man had ever seeu lt, but
there were plenty wbo bad heard its
notes, and Its notes always meant danger. One might travel to and fro on
tbe Staked plains for a year nnd never
see n bird of any sort except about their
edges. The only living things to be
met with are serpents, lizards, scorpions and skulking wolves. The arldness
nnd desolation are too much even for
tbe buzzards.
The death bird, so tbe legend went,
appeared only at night, and then no
man snw him. He came to give warning. HIb notes were peculiar, and ho
hunter could Imitate btm, but one hearing tbem In the silence of tbe night and
tbe desert could make no mistake. Before making the trip an old Uuuter said
to me:
"Tbere Is but one danger to look out
tor���tlie Apaches. They may follow
you clear across the desert They
will not attack you by daylight, but at
night, without your having seen a sign
of ihem. they will creep upon you as
softly as serpents and spare none. Listen for the notes of the death bird, and
when you hear them take Instant warning."
There were 16 of us In the party.
Fourteen soldiers wero supposed to
constitute a force able to take care of
Itself anywhere. There wae more anxiety ns to our wnter nnd rations tban
ns to the Indians wbo might dog our
footsteps. It was midsummer, and the
bent on that great surface of sand nnd
alkali soil was simply terrific. After
the flrst day. when we were cleur of
shelter, n march of six or eight miles
wus nil any one was capable of. The
nights brought cool breezes and recusation, but they also brought a loneliness no person can describe. Men
afloat on the wide ocean In a small
hont hear strange sounds at night nnd
are mnde afraid. Men on the desert
are almost made cowards by the uncanny surroundings. IT tbere Is the
chirp of n cricket or the howl of u coy
ote, It Ik not company. It simply adds
to the loneliness. Xt the nighl Is unbroken, tben It Is as IT a heavy blanket
bnd been thrown over your bead to
shut out tbe living world.
We saw nothing of Indians. No one
believed that a party took our trail. A
faithful watch was kept, however, but
ufter n few nights when I hnd come to
realize bow helpless we reully were I
found myself depending on that legend
of the death bird. If we were meiinced.
be would warn us. We hnd been out a
week when there enme tbe bluckest or
black nights. It was black because tt
was moonless and a storm wns gather
Ing. Our tents were set up lu a clus
ter, but tliey could not be seen nt a dis
tnnceof six feet. Three sentinels were
on duty, but they could not eee tbe
sands nt their feet IT tbe Indians bnd
followed, there would never be a bet-
fer night for ��� surprise, tt would be
no trick at all to creep witbln stubbing
distance of tbe cntlm-ls. und n volley
or arrows and bullets seut through tbe
tents mnst wound or kll. most of us.
1 was sitting lu tbe door or my tent
an hour after midnight, wondering
bow soon the storm would break, wben
there came to me from a point not far
distant the notes or tbe deulh bird.
They sounded a bit like tbe call of a
quail, and yet they were unlike, They
were like words instead of notes. Tbey
were soft and clear, aud from tbe very
first tbey suld to mc:
"Look outl Look outl Look out!
Danger! Danger! Danger: 1 >eat b
Dent hi    Death I"
1 repeat that tbe bird seemed to be
talking Instead or crying out In Its tint
urnl notes. I mny hnve got this Idea
from my state of nervous uppreheu
slon, but so It wns. I turned nud woke
up tbe two sleeping engineers and asked them to listen. Ibey did uot muke
out words as I did. but one of them
whispered:
"That's a danger cry, or 1 never
beard one. 1 tell you we are menaced
by some great peril 1"
Thrice tbe death bird called Its notes,
and tben all was silence as before. A.
soldier was sent creeping away to call
In the sentinels. A fow rods to tbe
north of us, as we nnd noticed wben
going Into camp, the sands had been
toyed *ltb by some strong gale until
the ridges almost formed a natural
fort With tbe greatest enre nnd in the
deepest silence we left tents und baggage, and, taking nothing but our water bottles and muskets, we crept ont
of camp to tbe noitb and by and by
reached tbe fort It wns bo dark tbat
men had to be felt for instead or spoken to, but nt tbe end of bait nn hour
we lay In line with our muskets resting
on a sand ridge and pointing toward
camp. One conld tell by tbe reeling In
tbe air tbnt the storm would soon
break and tbat tbe first break would bo
t rtvld Hash of Jlghtnlnr. The men
were Instructed to lire with the Hash in
case It revenled Indians about.
At last, when we were all In a tremble with anxiety, tbe Hash came. For a
few seconds It was as if n greiU searchlight had fallen upon the desert. It
was so blinding tbnt every eye was
closed for a second. Wben opened,
tbey beheld a band of 20 Apaches on
bands and knees within 25 feet of the
tents. A volley was tired straight Into
their faces and a second as another
flash showed a few In retreat, and
tben we lay tbere tn the pouring rain
till daylight came. There bud been in
the band, as near as we could figure it,
21 Indians. We bad fired without aim,
and tbe destruction wrought wns due
to luck or accident, but there were 1(1
redskins lying dend on the sands
around the camp. Among these were a
full chief, n subchlef and five or six
noted warriors. Our volleys hnd accomplished more than a year's campaigning with 000 soldiers. Indeed
they brought peace for two yenrs. Said
one of the survivors to me afterward:
"We had planned to kill the entire
lot of you. We heard the notes of the
death bird and knew yon would hear
them also, but we dldu't believe you
would understand the warning. Had
you not understood nnd moved away
not a man of you would hnve escaped."
For mnny days subsequently���ayej
for many months nnd years���us I was
posted along tbe desert or Journeyed
across it I looked for the death bird nt
morning, noon nnd night, but I never
got sight of lilm. His mission was to
fly ouly nt night nnd to tell of peril.
Why Did They Mlssf
Hunters' tales rarely make mention
of poor shots nnd failures, nnd n story

more Interesting. The narrator, Mr.

ABE   LEfT WEAK, SUFFERING
AND DESPONDENT,
A Nova So tliui Who Watt Attacked Almost Gave Up Hope uf ltecii very���Ills
Experleiiue nf Vultie tn O.htv h.
Prom lhe Enterprise, Bridgewdtor, N.S,
Mr. C. B. Johnson is about 28 years
old, a gold minor by occupation, is
well known about the mining cauips
in these parts and is thoroughly
posted in his business. Not lung ago
Mr. Johnson chanced to be in Porter's drug store, in Bridgewater,
when a case of Hr. Williams' Pink
Pills was heing opened, and hc remarked to the fieri; : "I saw tho
time when a dozen boxes of those
pills were of more value to me Limn
the best gold mine in the country."
A reporter of tho Enterprise happened to hear Mr. Johnson's rather
startling remark and asked why
he spoke so highly of the pills.
Mr. Johnson's statement was as follows: "About four years ugo 1 was
attacked with la grippe which kept
me from work about three weeks. I
did not have it very hard apparently, but it loft mo weak alt the samo.
Anyhow, after losing three weeks I
concluded to' go to work again. The
mine I was working in wus making
a good deal of w*��tor and 1 got wet
the lirst day. That night the old
trouble came back, with the addition
of a severe cold, T managed to get
rid of tin.* cold, but tlie whole force
of the disease settled in my stomach,
kidneys and joints, und bolls broke
out on my body and limbs. My back
was so weak I could scarcely stand
alone, while food in every form distressed me, and 1 became ho nervous
that any unusual noise would overcome me. I tried several sorts of
medicine, but none seemed to tlo any
good. I went to see a doctor. His
medicine helped me ul first, bul after
a short time lost ith effect. Ho then
changed the medicine, but with no
better result. About this time a
clergyman who culled al the house
advised me to try Ur. Williams' Pink
Pills. I got a box and used thein,
but they did not materially benefit
me. I had been now some weeks idle
and was feeling desperate. A friend
strongly advised me to go to u hospital for treat 11 tent und I had just
about decided to do so when un
acquaintunce learning I hnd taken
but one box of the pills suggested
that I sbauld try three boxes more
before giving them up, The matter
of money decided me on trying the
pills again. 1 got three boxes and
when used I was quite a bit Improved, could eat light, nutritious foot),
slept better, and felt noticeably
stronger. But 1 was still an unwell
man. As the pills were doing a good
work, however, 1 sent for eight boxos
more. I continued using them till
all were gone, when I felt that I was
restored lo health. All my stomach
trouble had disappeared, 1 was fully
as fleshy as before the first attack of
la grippe, my nerves were solid ns
ever, and I knew that work would
give strength to my muscles, So, after about six months, I went to
work again and have not had a sick
day since. One dozen boxes of Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills saved my lifo
and gave me better health since than
1 had before, and that is why 1 suid
they were worth more to me than
any gold mine, for all that a mun haa
he will give for his life."
Dr. Williams' Pink Pills cure by going to the root of tho disease. Th *>y
r.mew nnd build up the blood, and
strengthen the nerves, thus driving
disease from the system. If your
dealer does not keep them they
will bo sent postpaid at f>0 cents a
box, or six boxes for $2.-50 by addressing the Dr. Williams' Medicine
Co., Brockville, Ont.

THE DATE OF THE FLOOD.
Bllile   Fueta   on   Which   the   Bialiop
ItitHfil HIm (luestion,
Sonic people tmd fim over the reported rejection uf eight enmlldtites for
tbe African Methodist ministry In tbe
south by tbe examining bishop because
they could not lell the date of tin-
flood. Nevertheless the bishop wbo
nsked the question knew whnt he wns
doiug. It tuny not hnve been a fair
question, Imt there Is n concise nnswur
to it lu the Bible, nml he 110 doubt
thought.thnt the eight candidates. If
they were well verse;! in Hie Old Testa
ment, would answer li tit once.
The date of lhe flood was l.tlT.i! yenrs
after the birth of Adam. In the yeeond
month ami the seventeenth dny, It be
pan then and colt ttn tied for 40 tlnyt
aud nights. This is how it Is figured:
The third verse of tbe fifth chapter ol
Genesis rends thus. "And Adnin lived
130 years and begal 11 son hi his own
likeness, after his Image, und called liis
name Seth." Then In the Blxth verse
ll is told Hint Seth lived 10") years nnd
begnt Enos. Adnm, says tbe fourth
verse, lived Sim ycni'S nfter the hh'tl
of Seth, aud the latter after the birth
of Enos lived 807 years. So It goes on
Enos begnt Cnlnnn when he wns HO;
Cnlnan begnt Mnlutlnloel when lie was
7Ti; Mnhalnlccl bcgiit .lured when lie
wns 05; .Tared begni Enoch when be
wns 102. Metliusolnh wns born 10
Enoch when the hitter was 05, nml
when MethUBChlh was 1ST he begnt
Lttinecb, nnd I.niiiei-h's son Nonlicnnn
Into the world when the father wns
IS2. This brings us down to the birth
of Nouh. which, according to tlio milled
nces of the several iintrlarehs ai tlutl me their sons wore horn, occurred
l,0flll years after the birth of Ada in.
In the seventh chapter of (leusls the
eleventh verse reads as follows: "In
the six hundredth year of Noah's life
in the second month, the sevetiteenil
day of the month.tiie siuneday were nl
the fountains of ihe grent deep broken
up nnd all the windows of lienvoi.
were opened." This was the flood
nud It came to pass In the year 1050
after the birth of Adnm.

NOTE AND COMMENT.
A despatch .says a Dominion Government charter is being applied for to
incorporate the Pacific Conl company,
capitalized at 14.000,000, The principal
organizers are Sir William Van Horno,
then mobilized at Ottawa, bjing daily
drilled on foot in tha large building in
tbe Exhibition grounds, thero being
too much snow on the race track. We
had two mounted parades, at one of
which tho presentation of the colore
by Lady Minto took place in Parliament Square and our horses being of
rather wild nature, jumpeland bucked
whon wo gave three clietrs for our late
sovereign, this ending the proceedings,
wo returned to our grounds On our
way streets wero decorated with bunt
ing, not mentioning the flags which
tho peoulo carried, who would, as we
passed by, give us their small llags,
which we readily placed in the bridles
of our horses aud en our saddles,
which looked quite picturesque.
During our stay iu Ottawa wu were
guests of Lord Minto whose friends
gave us a splendid entertainment, foi
lowed by a supper, aftor whioh we returned to town by specially detailed
street cars, having spent a most, enjoyable time.   In  regard to our stay iu

Jed for whioh incorporation is sought
is the development of certain ooal lands
of great promise lying between Green
wood and Pcnticton, on Okanatian Lake
in the Boundary district. These coal
lands will bo tapped by the Canadian
pacific railway when their line is extended from Midway to Okanagan Lake,
It is thouuht that tlm heavy contracts recently entered into between
tho Crow's Nest Pass Coal Company,
In East Kcotemty, and the Great Northern railway, and the consequent
hrge shipment* to the United Statea
of 400 tons dnilv, coupled with the
efforts ofthe Great Northern to contract for 800 tons, or forty cars daily,
is causing consternation among the C.
P. It. officials, and tlie organization
above referred to would seem (o indicate
a desire uu the part uf the Canadian
Pacific management; toeventually make
their road independent ofthe Crow's
Nesr Pass company so far as coal supply
is concerned.
At present the haulage of this conl
from Fernie to Kalisi ell, Montana, on
the Oreat Northern system. Is about
375 miles, while in a direcL linn rouiIi
from tho Crow,a Nest ooal fields to-
Kaliapell thedistancelsonly HOmilcs.'
A railroad from Kaliapell direct to the
ooal fields would be a saving in
haulage of 265 miles, which, on forty
oars daily, would effect an enormous
saving per annum in the price of coal
to the Oreat Northern railway, and
there is a strong probability that suoh
a lino will be constructed by the Great
Northern* in the near future,
