-In one respect Clark's.expoditlon was
•adly lacking ln Its equipment for tlio
march,, It had absolutely no means of
transporting adequate supplies. The
pack horses were not nlile to carry
more than a little extra ammunition,
a feWj-articles of clothing, some simple cooking utensils nnd such tools sn
W.re heeded In Improvising rafts and
canoes. Consequently, although linf-
falo and deer were sometimes plentiful.
they furnished no lasting supply of
ment, because lt lould not be iraho-
ported, and ns the army ncarcd Vin-
cenne* wild animals became scarce, so
that the men began to suffer from hunger when williin lint a few days of
their Journey's end.
Clark made almost superhuman efforts ln urging forward liis chilled, water soaked, footsore command. Toward tlie end of the long march n decided fall of temperature ndded lee
to tho water-through which our dauntless patriots .wnded and swam for
miles.. *T'he wind shifted northwesterly, taking on a searching chill. Each
gust, Indeed, seemed to shoot wintry
splinters Into tlio very marrow of tho
men's bones. The weaker ones licgan
to show the approach of utter exhaustion Just at the time when n Hnnl spurt
of unflinching power was needed.
True, they struggled heroically, hut na'
ture was nenrJng the Inexorable limit
of endurance. Without food, which
there .was no prospect of getting, collapse was sure to eome.
Standing nearly waist deep In freezing water nnd looking out upon tho
muddy, sealike flood that stretched far
nway to the channel of tlie Wabash
and beyond, Clark turned to Beverley
nnd said, speaking low, so ns not to
be overheard by any other of his officers or men:
"Is it possible, Lieutenant Beverley,
thnt we are to fail, with Vlncennes nlmost In sight of us?"
"No, slr.'lt is not possible," was the
firm reply. "Nothing must, nothing
cnn, stop us. Look nt that bravo chlldl
Ho sets tho heroic example."
Beverley pointed as he spoke at a
boy but fourteen years old, who was
using his drum as a float to bear blm
up while he courageously swam beside
the men.
Clark's clouded face cleared once
more. "You are right," he said. "Come
on!   We must win or die!"
"Sergeant Dewit," he added, turning
to an enormously tall and athletic man
near by, "take that little drummer and
bis drum on yonr shoulder and lend the
way, nnd, sergeant, make him pound
that drum like tho devil beating tan
The huge man caught the spirit of
his commander's order. In a twinkling
he had-the boy astrldo of bis neck with
the kettledrum resting on his head,
nnd then the rattling music began.
Clark followed, pointing onward with
his Bword. Tbe half frozen nnd toller-
lng soldiers sent up n shout that went
back to whero Captain Bowman was
bringing up the rear under orders to
shoot every mnn that straggled or
shrank from duty.
Now came a time when not n mouthful of food was left. A whole day they
floundered on, starving, growing fainter nfrovery step, the temperature falling, fho Ice thickening. They camped
on high land, and next morning they
heard Hamilton's distant sunrise gun
boom over the water.
"One half ration for the men," snld
Clark, looking disconsolately In the
direction whence tho sound had come;
"Just flvo moutbfuls apiece, even, nnd
I'll harjj.Jpinillton nnd his fort within forty-eight hours."
"We will hnvo the provisions, colonel,
or I will die trying to got them," Beverley responded.   "Depend upon me."
They bad constructed some canoes
In which to transport the weakest of
tbe men.
"I will tako n dugout and some picked fellows. Wo will pull to the wood
yonder, and there we shall find some
kind of game which has been forced to
shelter from tbe high water."
It was a cheerful view of a forlorn
hope. Clark grasped the hand extended by Beverley and they looked encouragingly into ench other's eyes.
Oncle Jnzon volunteered to go In the
pirogue. Ho was ready for anything,
"I enn't shoot wo'th a cent," he
whined as they took their places In tho
cranky pirogue, "but I might Jes' happen to kill n squlr'l or a elephant or
somepin' 'nother."
"Very well!" shouted Clark ln n loud,
cheerful voice, when they had paddled
nwny ton considerable distance. "Bring
the meat to Iho woods 011 thu bill yonder," pointing to a distant Island-llko
ridge fur beyond tho creeping flood.
"We'll bo there ready to cut lt!"
Ho said this for the ears of his men.
They heard and answered with n straggling but determined chorus of approval. They crossed the rolling current of tho Wnbash by a tedious process of ferrying, nnd nt last found
themselves once moro wading In back
wnter up to their armpits, breaking Ico
nn Inch thick ns tbey went It wns
tlio closing struggle to reach the high
wooded lands. Many of tliem fell exhausted, but fhelr stronger comrade*
lifted! thein, holding their heads nboro
, water, and dragged tliem on.
Clark, always lending, always Inspiring, wns first to *et foot on dry' land.
He shouted triumphantly, waved his
sword and then fell (o helping the men
out of tlio freezing Hood. This nccom-
pllshed, ho ordered fires built, but
there wns not n soldier of them nil
whose bunds could clasp nn ax handle,
eo weak and numbed wilh cold wore
they. He was not to bo ballled, However. If fire could not bo bud, cxerclsa
must serve Ils purpose. Mnsllly pouring some powder Into his hand, ho
flumOOncd It nnd blacked his face.
"Victory, men, victory!" be shouted,
taking off his lint and beginning to
leap and dunce. "Come on! We'll
hnvo n war ilanco nnd then n feast nl
soon ns the .neat arrive* llmt I i-ove
sent for. Dance, you bravo lads, dance!
Victory!   Victory!"
The strong men, understanding their
colonel's purpose, took hold of the delicate ones, and the leaping, the capering, the tumult of voices nnd tho
stamping of slushy moccasins wilh
which tbey assaulted that stately forest must have frightened every wild
tiling thereabout into a deadly rigor.
Clark's Irrepressible energy and optimism worked n veritable charm upon
bis faithful but almost dvlnc oomnan-
Ien'» In arms. Their trust ln him made
them feel sure Hint food would soou
be forthcoming. The thought afforded
a stimulus more potent than wine. It
drove thein Into nn ecstasy of frantic
motion and shouting which soon warmed them thoroughly.
It is said that fortune favors the
brave. The linger meaning of the
sentence may be given thus: God
guards thoso who deserve his protection, nistory tells us that just when
Clark baited bis command almost in
sight of Vlncennes—Just when hunger
wns about to prevent the victory so
closo to bis grasp—a parly of bis
scouts brought in the haunch of a buffalo captured from some Indians. The
scouts were Beverley and Onele Jazon.
And with the meat they brought Indian kettles in which to cook it.
With consummate forethought Clark
arranged to prevent his men doing
themselves injury by bolting tbelr food
or cutlng lt half cooked. Broth was
first made and served hot; then small
bits of well broiled steak were doled
out, until by degrees tho fine effect of
nourishment set In, and all th,.. command felt tho fresh courage of healthy
"I ain't no gln'ral, nor corp'ral, nor
nothiu'," remarked Oncle Jnzon to
Colonel Clark, "but 'f I's you I'd h'ist
up every dad dinged ole flag in the
rig'ment, w'en I got ready to show myself to 'em, nn' I'd mako 'cm think,
over yander at the fort, 'at I had 'bout
ninety thousan' men. Hit 'd skeor that
eandy faced gov'norover there till he'd
think his backbone was a-comln' out'n
'im by the roots."
Clark laughed, but his face showed
that the old man's suggestion struck
him forcibly and. seriously.
"We'll see about that presently,
Onele Jazon. Wait till wo reach tho
hill yonder, from whleh the whole town
can observe our maneuvers; then we'll
try lt, maybe."
Once moro tho men were lined up,
the roll call gone through, wilh satls-
fnetorily and tho question put:

Hamilton's aim, ulthough busty, was
not bad. The bullet from his weapon
cut through Fnther Beret's, clothes between his left arm and his body, slightly creasing the flesh on a rib. Beyond
him It struck heavily and audibly.
Alice fell limp nnd motionless to the
soft, wet ground, where cold puddles of
water were splintered over with lee.
She lay pitifully crumpled, one nrm

Beret heard the bullet bit her and

Father Beret uttered a short, thin

for anything but death or fight. The

what ho had done In visiting tb? room

be extremely embarrassing, and to be
seen chasing her would give good
ground for ridicule on the part of bis

Bolh men, stimulated to the linger

For she would have understood every

how Falher I'.ercl set the pace and l"d

hnve understood, for Falher lleret had
taught her all sbe knew about tho art

Hamilton quickly felt, nnd wilh n

masterly command of bis weapon. Tho
surprise called up ull Ilia caution and
cioverncss, Before he could adjust
himself io such an unexpected condition he came near being spitted outright b.v a pretty pass under bis guard.

Underfoot It was slushy with mud,

the shiftier and surer fighter, but (was
his age telling on him?) ho lost perceptibly in suppleness. Still Hamilton failed to touch him. There was a
baffling something in the old man'*

to have been an Inevitable stroke.
Was it lick? It seemed to Hamilton
more than that—n sort of uncanny evasion. Or was lt supreme mastery, tho

Youth forced age slowly backward

blades, becoming lnero glints of eelcu-

nigh continuous stroke, sent a Jarring
noise through tha air. Father Beret
lost inch by Inch, until the fighting was
almost over the body of Alice, and now
for tho flrst timo Hnmllton became
aware of thnt motionless something
with the white, luminous face in profile agnlnst the ground; but he did not
let even thnt unsettle his fencing gaze,
which followed tho sunken and dusky
eyes of his ndvcisnry. A perspiration
suddenly flooded his body, however,
nnd began to drip ncross his fnce. His
nrm wns tiring. A doubt crept like a
chill into his heart. Then the priest
appeared to add n cubit to his stnture
nnd waver strangely ln the soft light.
Behind him, low against the sky, n
wide winged owl shot noiselessly
across Just "above Uie prairie?
The soul of n true priest is double;
lt Is the soul of n saint and the soul of
a worldly man. What is most benuti-
ful in this duality ls the supremo cour-
ngewith which the saintly spirit attacks the wdrldly and so often heroically masters lt. In the beginning of
the fight Father Beret let n passion of
the earthly body take -him by storm.
It was well for Governor Henry Hamilton that the priest wns so wrought
upon ns to unsettle his nerves; otherwise there would hnve been nn evil
heart Impaled midway of Father Beret's rapier. A little later the saintly
spirit began to assert itself, feebly Indeed, hut surely. Then lt wns thnt
Father Beret seemed to be losing agility for awhile ns he backstepped away
from Hamilton's increasing energy of
assault. In his heart tho priest wa*
saying: "I will not murder him. I
must not do thnt. He deserves death,
but vengeance ls not mine. I will disarm hiin." Step by step he retreated,
playing erratically to make an opening
for a trick he meant to use.
It was singularly loose play, a sort
of wavering, shifty, incomprehensible
show of carelessness that caused Hamilton to entertain a doubt, which wns
really a fear, as to what was going to
happen, for, notwithstanding nil this
neglect of due precaution on the
priest's pnrt, to touch bim seemed Impossible, miraculously so, nnd every
plan of attack dissolved into futility
ln tho most maddening way.
"Priest, dovll or ghost!" raged Hamilton, with a froth gathering mound
bis mouth.  "I'll kill you, or"—
Ho mndo a lunge when his adversary
left nn opening which nppeared nbso-
lutely beyond defense. It wns a quick,
dexterous, vicious thrust. The blade
leaped toward Fnther Beret's henrt
with a twinkle llko lightning.
At thnt moment, nlthough wnrlly
nlert nnd hopeful that his opportunity
was at hand, Father Beret enme near
l03ing his life, for ns he sidestepped
nnd easily parried Hamilton's thrust,
which be had Invited, thinking to entangle his blade nnd disarm him, ho
caught his foot ln Alice's skirt und
stumbled, nearly falling ncross her.
It would havo been easy for Hamilton
to run him through had he instantly
followed up the advantage, but the
moonlight on Alice's fate struck bis
eyes, nnd by that indirect ray of vision
which i.. often strangely effective ho
recognized her lying there. It was *
disconcerting thing for him, but be
rallied Instantly nnd sprang aside, tnk-
ing a new position Just In time to face
Father Beret again. A chill crept up
his back. Tho horror which he could
not shake off enraged him beyond
measure. Gathering fresh energy, be
renewed the nssault with desperate
steadiness, the highest product of absolutely molten fury.
Father Beret felt the dangerous access of power In his nntngonist's arm
and knew that a crisis had arrived.
Ho could not be cureless now. Hero

resented nn insult. The saintly spirit

over the spirit oi the old priest's movements. Instantly the sword leaping
against ills own seemed endowed with j
subtle cunning and malignant treachery. Before this it liad been diiliault
enough to meet the fine play and bold

confused, but he rose to the emergency

muttered, with petulant accent. "Why

As he did this Father Beret sellled

Both men knew that llie moment had
arrived for the final act ln their impromptu play. It was short, n duel
condensed nnd crowded Into fifteen
seconds of time, nnd It was rapid beyond tho power of words to describe.
A bystander, had (here been one, could
not hnvo seen what was llnally done or
how lt wns done. Father Beret's sword
seemed to be revolving—It was n halo
In front of Ilamillon for a mere point
of time. Tho old priest seemed to
crouch nnd then make a quick motion
ns lf about to leap backward. A
wrench and a snip, ns of something
violently jerked from a fastening, were
followed by n semicircular flight of
Hamilton's rapier over Fullier Beret's
head to stick in the ground ten feet
behind him. The duel was over, and
the whole terrible struggle had occupied loss thnu three minutes.
With his wrist strained nnd bis fingers nlmost broken, Hamilton stumbled
forward and would bave impaled himself hnd not Falher Beret turned tho
point of his weapon aside ns he lowered it.
"Surrenderor die!"
That was a strange order for a priest
to mako, but there could bo no mistaking its authority or the power behind
lt. Hamilton regained his footing nnd
looked dazed, wh'ezlng nnd puffing
like n porpoise, but he clearly understood what was demanded of blm.
"If you cull out, I'll run .you
through," Father Beret added, seeing
him move his lips as if to shout for
Tho level rnpler now re-enforced the
words. Hamilton let the hrenth go
noiselessly from his mouth und waved
his baud in token of enforced submission.
"Well, what do you want me to do?"
ho demanded, nfter n short pause.
"You seem to have me nt your mercy.
What are your terms?"
Father Beret hesitated. It was n
question difficult to answer.
"(llvo me your word ns n British
officer thnt you will never nguin try

Hamilton's gorgo rose perversely.
He erected himself with lofly reserve
nnd folded his nrms. The dignity of n
lieutenant governor leaped into him

"My peoplo have borne much," he
said, "and tho killing of Hint poor child

"I nm willing to givo you my word."
ho presently snid.    "And  let mc tell
you," he went on more rapidly, "I did
not shoot nt her.   Sho was behind you."
'Tour word us n British officer*1''
Ilamillon  ngaln  stiffened  nnd  hesitated, but only for the briefest space,
then said:
"Yes, my word ns.a British officer."
Father Beret waved his hand with
"Co, then, hack to your place In the
fort, nnd disturb my peoplo no more.
Tho soul of this poor little girl will
haunt you forever.   Go!"
Ilamillon stood n lillle while gazing
nt Ihe face of Alice with the horrible
wlstfulnnss of remorse. What would
he not have given to rub his eyes nnd
find It nil n dream?
He turned nway, a cloud scudded
ncross tho moon, hero nnd yonder In
the dim town cocks crowed with a lonesome, desultory effect.
Father Beret plucked up the rapier
that he hnd wrenched from Hamilton's
hand.   It suggested something.
"Hold!" he ended out. "Give me the
scabbard of this sword."
Hamilton, who wns- striding vigorously In Ihe direction of the Tort,
turned ubout as lh-> priest burdened to

"Qui sine peecato est, primus la-

Just then somo one knocked on the

"Your pardon, father, but, hearing

called out.

a suppressed desire to nvold explanations on the captain's pnrt and u reprimand on his own. Alice's while face
hnd Impressed Itself indelibly on his

at every turn. He was afraid to con-

It was soon discovered that Alice hnd

bent high at the prospect of a chnnge
In mnsters nt the fort. Every cnbhv
had Its hidden gun nnd supply of nm-

Iconoclasts were Image breakers. The
controversy respecting images, which
hud been Introduced Into churches for
popular Instruction about A. I). 300,
was begun about A. I). 720 and occasioned much disturbance and loss of
life In the eastern empire. Leo Isau-
ricus published two edicts for demolishing images ln churches in that year
and enforced them with great vigor in
TUG. The controversy was carried on
iu tho church, and lite schism was tho
occasion of tbe second council of Nice,
A. I). 787. The Iconoclasts wero finally
excommunicated nt llie eighth general
council held later at Constantinople,
aud this controversy led to the separation of the Greek and Latin churches.

It is not universally known thnt the
right of erecting 11 dovecot wns n privilege only to be enjoyed in England by
tho lords of the manor, nnd the law
was vigorously enforced on this point.
But In Scotland, according to a statute
still hold In observance, nobody has n
right to build n cot in either town or
country unless ho ls the owner of hind
yielding about 0(10 imperial bushels of
produce per annum, nnd this property
must be situated within nt least two
miles of Ihe dovecot or pigeon house.
A further enactment nlso slates that
on tho above named conditions only
one cot shnll be built.
A distinguished authority on Iius-
bnndry estimated that In 1028 thero
wero 20,600 dovecots In England and
that, allowing BOO pairs to each house,
the damage wrought by the birds In
devouring corn would work out nt no
less thnn 18,000,000 bushels—tbnt Is, nn
allowance of four bushels yearly to
ench pair. Any one who destroyed n
cot wns guilty of theft nnd is so held
at tho present time ln Scotland (the
net wns p.issod in 157!)), while n third
oO'ense of dovecot breaking wns capitally punishable. Perfect specimens
of these cots nro becoming scarcer every year.—Hour Glass.
The Wny They Are Formed From the

A sen shell, whether in one piece
(univalve), ns in periwinkles, or In two
pieces (blvnlve), ns in mussels nnd cockles, Is formed In much the snme wny.
lt consists of a colored outer horny
luyer, a mlddlo layer of prismatic structure and nu Inner pearly coating of
innumerable very thin plates, the edges
of which brenk up while light iuto its
constituents, so us to givo rise to n
beautiful piny of Iridescence.
The body of a shellfish Is invested
In a soft flap of skin known ns the
"mantle." By the activity of this the
shell is secreted, a sticky fluid exudes
from Its surface and quickly hardens
to form horny or calcareous matter.
The stilts of lime nre chiefly in tlie
form of carbonate, but there in also a
percentage of phosphate,

The Doctor Was Right
About His Vocal Powers
ONCE a number of kindred spirits
were enjoying a supper In the
land of Hums. When tho cloth
was removed nnd the usunl toasts were
proposed some one suggested a song.
The efforts of the llrst Hcotchmnn met
with such a hearty reception that others were Induced to follow his example.
In the end It wns found that every
one had contributed to the evening's
entertainment but the medical gentleman who occupied tho vice chair.
"Come, come, Dr. Macdonald," said
tho chairman; "we cnunot let you escape."
The doctor protested that he could
hot sing.
"As n matter of fnct," he explnlned.
"my voice Is altogether unmusical and
resembles the sound caused by the net
of rubbing a brick along tbe panels of
a door."
Tho company attributed this to tho
doctor's modesty. Good singers, h.
wns reminded, always needed a lot of
"Very well," said the doctor; "lf you
cnn stand It I will sing."
Long before he bad finished, his audience wns uneasy. The unwilling singer hnd faithfully described bis voice.
There was u painful silence as the
doctor snt down, broken ut length by
Ihe voice of a braw Scot at the end of
the tnblc.
"Mon," he exclaimed, "your slngln's
no up to much, but your veracity's jus!
awful.   You're rleht aboot that brick."
One day a fussy fellow met Father

Mini is a iniUiuiuiire many times over in
tile possession of blood cells. Woman is
tiot quite ho rich, for scientists have proven
that tbe normal number of red blood cells
iu adult meu is five million; iu women four
and a half million, to the square millimeter.
The normal cell is not absolutely round
In health, but, in disease, becomes extremely Irregular in shape. livery one can
be in perfect health aud possess the millions of rich red blood corpuscles if they
. only know how to jjo about it. Dr. U. V.
Pierce, consulting physician to the Invalids' Hotel and Suitfical Institute, at Buffalo, N, Y., advises every man and woman
to prepare for a long life by observing nature's laws. In tht first place, if your
digc-tion is faulty, and tbe food you
eat is not taken up by the blood and assimilated properly, you need a toiltc and digestive corrector, somctft.ng that will increase
the red blood corpuscles; he believes in
going about this in nature's own way.
Years ago, in his1, active practice, he found
that an alterative extract of certain herbs
and roots, put up without the use of alcohol, would put the liver, hi tigs and heart
into fuller aud more complete actiou. This
medicine he called Dr. Pierce's Golden
Medical Discovery. By assimilating the
food eaten, it nourishes the blood, and, in-
Mead of the ill-shaped corpuscles, the person's blood talies ou a rich red color aud
the corpuscles are more nearly round.
Nervousness is only the cry of tlie starved
nerves for food, and when the nerves are
fed on rich red blood the person losej
those irritable feelings, sleeps well at night
and feels refreshed in the morning.

her own thrilling words: "My heart

are the cries emitted hy the Galls, whioh
dripping wet and evidently suffering
from croup, rheumatism aud bill-ache,
fly inland nud endeavor to flud
warmth and shelter. I have endeavored
to nllevinte thoir sufferings hy spending
n night ou the bench (Euglish Bay) with
a charcoal fire, arouud which the Gulls
have fluttered all night, evidently appreciating tho warmth aud light."
Now don't suoer aud say the Gulls
ought to have their achiug bills pulled.
Does not this appeal open new vistas of

cau put this urgeut claim aside by sug-

plain. Or, to tako another poiut, why
should we not provide little shelters for

But the Natal Government insists on

from milliners uf note thnt goldeu
