LAST DAY.
SPENCER k PERKINS
-fo. 58 llerBtviey Square.
Tho houso is not without traditional
interest, for it was in tho last century
the scene of a romantic elopement. It
was then tho residence of Mr. Child, the
opulent hanker of Temple Bar, who had
an only daughter, the heiress of his
enormous wealth. Tho Earl of Westmoreland paid attentions to tho young
lady, but his suit was not encouraged hy
her father, who wished bis daughter to
marry a younger son, and form a new
family, which should' perpetuate the
name of Child. Nothing daunted, Lord
Westmoreland determined to make a
clandestine lnniriago at Gretna Green.
In order to make good tho heroine's escape it was necessary to evade tho vigilance of her duenna, who slept in the
room through which that of the heiress
was approached. So tho old lady's posset
was drugged, and sho slept the sleep of
tbo just while her young charge slipped
out into Berkeley square, whero Lord
Westmoreland was waiting with his
traveling carriage. But, unluckily, in
their eagerness to be off, the fugitives
left tho front door ajar, and (ho watchman coming round soon .afterward
alarmed the house.
Tho (light Has discovered, and Mr.
Child, ordering out his carriage, set forth
in pursuit. All night long ami all next
day the angry father raced bis errant
daughter, and, as they neared tho holder,
ho began to gain on the fugitives. Then
Lord Westmoreland drew his pistol and
shot Mr. Child's leader dead. The victory
was won, the chase was over, nnd the
young couplo woro duly married by the
blacksmith, Meanwhile Ml", Child returned in high dudgeon to Eondon. and
mado a will leaving all his wealth, over
his daughter's head—not to her sons, for
so ho would havo enriched tho earldom
of Westmoreland—but to her eldest
daughter. Thus tho prlneipal interest
in tho great hanking houso passetl to
Lady Sarah Sophia Child Fane, who
married tho Earl of Jersey and was tho
grandmother of tho present peer. Sho
was for fifty years one of tho best known
figures in tho society of London, and is
graphically described by Lord Beacons-
field iu "Eudymion," under tho namo of
Zenobia. Lord Jersey sold tho houso to
Lord Rosebery.—Murray's Magazine.

Money Making MHgets.
Tho littlo people seem to havo received
uioro brains to compensate for their
diminutive bodies. Nearly all of them
can mako money well and easily and
most of them know how to keep it. Some
of tho best known midgets on tho stage,
all people of standing and most of them
possessed of wealth or something very
near it, aro ns follows:
Commodore Footo and his sister, Eliza
Kestrel, not deformed at all, but midgets
who travel widely and collect coin and
decorations.
Senorita Lucia Zarate, tho most successful midget in (ho world, perfectly
formed, weight 4 pounds 4f ounces antl
height 20J- inches, by New York Clipper
measurements.
Mrs. Gen. Tom Thumb, who was born
in Middleboro, Mass., Juno 2, 1841, and
is 37 inches high.
Her second husband, Count Magrl,
brother of Baron Magrl, both very small
and rich men.
Gen. Tom Thumb, now dead, of Bridgeport, Conn., 88 inches high, by Clipper
measurement.
Qon. Mito, who, hy tho samo measure'
ments, was found lo weigh 0 pounds
nnd to bo 28 inches high.

from England aud makes plenty of
money.

POLICE COURT,
Loudon, June irl.—11 is now likely
that the Duke of Cambridge, commander-
in-Chief of the British army and first
cousin to Queen Yictoria. will have to
answer in a police court for his assault
upon a reporter named Simms on the occasion of the firemen's parade recently.
Simms and his friend, after vainly appealing for a warrant against tho Puke,
nrsi to one police magistrate and then to
another, brought their case to higher
courts. Lord Coleridge, Chief Justice of
England, lo-day gave his decision remanding the ease to the magistrate for
adjudication. In his decision Ihe Lord
Chief Justice says that it is of the highest importance thai lhe public should at

London, June 21.—The Czar of Russia
refuses to permit the young Prince Philip
of Hoheiilohe, to accept his portion of the
estate of his deceased uncle, Prince Witte-
genslein. The decision of the Czar causes
irritation in Berlin, for although Prince
Philip hits become a Russian by naturalization, he is the son of Prince' Ilolien-
lohe, the German Governor of Alsace and
Loraine, and the Czar's action is felt to
be a blow aimed at (Icrmanv and tier-
mans, more especially as the claim of the
young Prince was vigorously supported
by Bismarck.

Teaching; Their rating.
There havo been two scientific facts
discovered through tho mediumship of
tho Zoological garden, about which the
public havo been kept in ignorance.
Early one morning in Thompson's timo
Herr Schmidt went out to seo tlio old sea
lion and her baby. Ho was astonished
to seo the mother with tho young down
ou tbo edgo of tho bridge, vomiting some
sort of oil all over it. Thinking something wrong, ho nt onco called Thompson, wdio, seeing tho operation of tho
mother, said, "That's funny," and great
was the astonishment of both when the
mother nosed tho young ono into tho
water. Ho floundered about anil got
back on to the bridge. Sho nosed him
in again and kept on repeating tho dose
for livo or six times, then took the young
ono and carried him into tho house.
"I've learned something good therefrom
not known to scientists, and thut is that
the mother seal oils her young with oil
from her stomach before she teaches
thorn to swim. That's something now in
natural history. Tho other discovery
was that young grizzlies weigh at birth
only about a pound or a pound and a
quarter, and tho way thoy taught their
cub to Bwim was funny. Tho father
would push tho cub iuto tho water,
whero it would paw and flounder, then
both mother and father would go to tbo
edgo of tho water tank, and reaching
out tlieir paws, roko tho cub up, invariably dropping it half a dozen (imej beforo they landed it."—Cincinnati Enquirer.
Horses' Teeth.
More trouble with and lack of condition of horses nro duo fo ulcerated and
irregular teeth  than is generally sup-
I posed.   They should bo removed with
I forcops.   Thoro is> no reason to doubt
! that a horse with ulcerated teeth suffers
i as intensely from toothache as a human
subject.   Irregular growth or fracture
of the enamol on tho outer edges mako
the teeth so rough as to injuro the iuside
of the cheek, sometimes causing ulcers.
, In other cases somo of the grinders grow
I moro slowly than others and fail to meet
I those in the opposite jaw, causing what
I is called "quldtng," imperfect mastication of the food.   The remedy is to file
tbo teeth into tho proper shape.   Horse
tlcntistry is uov   recognized as an important brunch of veterinary prnctice.—

which   is   known   as   ''Judith
Country,''   nboiil    loll    miles  north   of
Helena.   Saturday  last   the body of al
middle-aged woman, who had been shol
in the back, was found hya cowboy In a
wild  an   unfrequented  spot on Judith
River.   The Coroner's inquest developed
no Information as to who she wns.   To- i
dm    Ibe   bodies  of   two   men   and  a
sixteen-year old airl and a  six-year-old j
girl   wore   discovered   about   100 yards
above the same place.    All were shot in'
tho   back   except   the  child,   who was!
strangled.   Near by were found the remains   of   a   burned   trunk   and  camp;
equipage.     Everything  by  which  the j
bodies might be Identified was destroyed.
No one in Judith Country can recognize
Ilm bodies.   They are supposed to  have;
been a family of emigrants  from lown or
Illinois.    The   whole of Judith County
is aroused, and a hundred horsemen are j
scouring the plains seeking the trail of
the murderers. The officers and citizens
of Fergus County are sparing no pains or
expense in the search. The place where
the deed was committed is 100 miles from

CAPTAIN  KANE OF  THE
LIOPE."
CAL-
A Parliamentary paper ha- jus! been
published containing Captain Kane's report on the escape of Her Majesty's ship
Calliope from Apia.  Samoa,  during the
hurricane of March last, together witli an
official letter from the Admiralty thanking Captain   Kane for bis conduct, and
expressing high appreciation of the behaviour of his officers and men.   The
escape of this now historic war-ship, may
well  be  a  legitimate  cause  for pride
among Englishmen, us may be the possession of such a countryman as Captain
Kase, who quietly insists through all the
adulation   heaped   upon   bim,   that he
merely did his duty, and that it was just
as easy, and required no more nerve, to
steam out against the fearful hurricane
than   to  allow   the   Calliope    to    drag
ashore as did the American and German
war-ships.     it   takes    but     it    slight
stretch of the imagination to picture the
scene.   The wild shouting and confusion
on board of the ships that  were striking
heavily against each other's ribs as the
huge  surf waves rolled in, whilst  the
hurricane rushed  straight  through  the
only entrance to   the  harbor   which   is
very contracted, owing to the formation
of a coral reef across the mouth,over only
it-part of which is the water deep enough
ior large vessels to pass.   We have ourselves witnessed one of these hurricanes
in the Southern Pacific and can estimate
the   cool   courage   requisite   to   steam
through the narrow channel, out into a
wild, tumbling, chaotic mass of water
whicli at such times forms in unbroken
waves of more than three miles in length.
For  twenty-four  hours the Chief Em-
gineer tells us he had the engines going
at full speed,tliougli they failed to drive tho
ship much more than a knot an hour, so
I errifie was the power of winds and waves.
Green seas swept the Calliope; indeed
from the admiralty report we gather that
at timeB, but little of the ship was visible
so completely buried was she In Ihe rushing seething waterB.
"Reckless of danger, vana.ui.hlng control,
Ske rides the surges like a thine divine,
A living creature with .dauntless soul,
A form in which thc finer powers combine."
lt is deeds such as this of which lhe
Calliope's Captain and Chief Engineer
are the heroes, that serve to keep up the
belief in natives of Great Britain that
when the hour of trial comes their countrymen are ns n rule not found w anting.
That British pluck and British seamanship are not quite such relics of the past
as pessimists would have us to believe,
That the great Devonshire sea-captains of
Elizabeth's time have still some worthy
successors even In these degenerate days.
It is to such proved men as Captain
Kane and Lord Charles BbREBFOBO on
the one side and General Sir Frederick
Roberts on the other, that their countrymen will turn expectantly in the cent
oi serious trouble or danger, and not to
the Carpet Knights who, while receiving
lhe pay ot Ambassadors allow others lo
bear the heat antl burden of the day.
THE     HRITISH    MINISTER     TO
WASHINGTON.
We are glad to see that the new British
Minister to Washington is likely to become as great a favorite in the Capital of
the United States as he was in London.
Lord SAi.isnt.itv. so says Mr. Greenwood
in the St. James Gazelle, chose Sir
Julian to represent the court of St.
James at Washington not only for his
ability as a diplomatist ol a high order,
but also for his possession of there most
essential of all qualities in the sue lesBful
Ambassador—tact and personal charm.
Few persons allow enough for I ne exercise of this latter quality which is not to
be acquired, but seems to be as much
inborn, as is the ability In swim on the
part of the duckling. Lord Palmerston
who was neither eloquent or willy,
had this personal magnetism which binds
men and women to its happy
possessor more closely than qualities of a
far higher order. The Marquis of Pi'F-
ferin—our readers will notice that imr
quondam Governor-General has recently
climbed another rung of the social ladder
—was pre-eminently possessed of this
rare gift which perhaps does more than
any other to make its possessor a successful man of the world. A Washington
paper says: Sir Julian P.m ncefote is
already almost as well known on our
.tree's as his immediate predecessors at
the British legation. "What a fine looking Englishman?" everybody says as he
swings along at youthful speed and with
youthful grace, in spite of the white hair
and side-whiskers whicli stand out so
strikingly against his youthful, blushing
face. He is a splendid specimen of the
British six-footer, and must be a great
cricketer when he is at home. He is very
much at home already here, thinks the
city beautiful, and the legation comfortable, and tbe people charming, and so"
wears a perpetual smile. Naturally
enough everybody smiles back, and he is
likely to be as popular as dear old Sir
Edward Thornton wa-. He is not unlike
Sir Edwahd in looks, although he is
bigger and bluffer, and has a more hearty
and robust manner. He iB a much abler
man, apparently, than either Thornton
or West. Certainly lie will write no
compromising letters. He is going back
presently after his family, who will make
the legation gay next winter."
ELECTION OF A   CLERGYMAN IN
ENGLAND.
In letters lo the Editor, oi English
papers, we have of late grown so accustomed to see grumbling about "round pegs
in square holes" as far as the composition oi the Clergy of the church of England
is concerned, that one is apt to read witb a
sense oi novelty, not unmixed with curiosity, of tbe proceedings connected with
the election ofa clergyman by household
suffrage. We have heard of fat livings
knocked down to tlie highest bidder at
the fall of the auctioneer's hammer, but
this election of clergymen is. we think
even a still more marked sign of the
times. It was in one of tlie parishes of
Birmingham that the novel contest took
place, a few weeks since. There were
three candidates representing each of the
three sections of churchmen—high, low
and broad. The high churchman ran
the low churchman hard, but lhe latter
claimed the stakes, while the broad
churchman was simply nowhere. Evidently the churchmen of Birmingham like
distinctiveness, antl in this respect they
are probably nol different to a large proportion oi the parishes of England in
which the term "broad" churchman, in
its technical sense, is neither understood
nor appreciated. But the itlea of electing
your own parson is one of those novelties
which set one a thinking. Whether it
must he accounted a good substitute for
the present system oi patronage, is not
quite so great a certainty as at lirst sight
might appear, it, no doubt, would have
its advantages, particularly if tlie body
wlio made had the power to unmake the
incumbent. But after all it seems to be
a choice between two evils, anil with
slight reservations, we are inclined lo
think that the interests of the Church
demand the continuance and improvement of the one rather than the general
adoption of the other.

An Enulish Brewer," writes from
Tunbridge to the Devonport Independent:
"As in his address at the Conference ou
Intemperance, Mr. Walter lias put forth
the proposal that English beer be, as
much as possible, assimilated to the German beer in its invigorating but non-
intoxieating character, it will be interesting to point out wherein the difference of
the two national beverages exists. The
difference is wholly in fermentation. If
fermentation be conducted at a temperature above the normal temperature of
water in a well, viz., 62)4 deg. Fahrenheit, I
the yeast iu the process of fermentation
will rise to the surface of the liquid; if it
be conducted at a temperature lower than
this, the yeast will be precipitated. The
English fermentation is the former, being usually started at CO degrees, more or
less; the German fermentation is the
latter, being usually about 4.4 degrees, or
less. The English fermentation occupies
from five lo seven days, the
German fourteen to twenty-one. It
is obvious that except in mid-winter,
the German fermentation has to be
carried on In the artificial temperature of
an ice house. On the face of it. it appears
a very easy thing to reduce the English
fermentation temperature to the German,
hut it is to be observed thai the two fermentations yield beers of essentially different flavours, lt would take years,
perhaps generations, to educate the English popular taste to the distinctive
flavour of the low temperature fermentation, lt is true tbat the Gorman fermentation has the strong recommendation that
it yields a liquor of far less intoxicating
power, but even here a curious nuoinaly
is presented. Not only does the German
lager beer contain as [much malt as tho
English pale a'.e. but on being tested for
alcohol it will be found to contain a
greater percentage of spirit than the
latter! Notwithstanding this fact, universal experience shows thai, while the
German beer is eminently nourishing
and invigorating, it scarcehi affects the
hininatall. Thus the true solution of
the (so-called) temperance question lies
in tlie hands of the brewers. The work
before thorn is not without grave difficulty, hut it may bo put in a nutshell
thus, "How to ferment a malt liquor
which shall combine thc non-intoxicating
character ot the German higer bier with
the incomparable flavour of English pale
ale.
Mit. Parnell once more impugns the
tilness of the tribunal whicli has been
set up, in answer to his own demands,
for the trial of his movement. His impression evidently is that a Commission
not absolutely imbued with Irish sentiment, that does uot Bee everything re-
Y::ngto himself and his party from an
ideal Irish standpoint, and that is not, in
fact, perfectly Irish iu ils essence and inception, is not a body to conduct investigations into the history or morality of
Parnellism and Crime, or to sit in judgment upon him and his confreres in the
Irii.ii revolutionary movement. He considers that "no tribunal ignorant of
Irish history and of Irish character, and
by bitlh, education, and political conviction, adverse to the aspirations ol Ireland," is lit or able to decide the issue
before them. All we can say is that Mr.
Parnell is very hard to please, in the first
place, and in the next that he seems to
possess very "Irish" notions of the
measure of fairness due to his accusers.
There is no ground whatever for his assumption that the tribunal before which
the present inquiry is being conducted will
deal otherwise than justly by him and
his cause.

The actual revenue of China is believed
to amount to (125,000,000, raised by
taxes on land, (Train, the transit of goods,
foreign imports, and a few other subjects,
and by the sale ol" ranks and degrees. Of
this amount $75,000,000 is believed te be
spent in one way or another upon the
army. Of course this amount is irrespective of local dues, ol requisitions in kind,
and of direct plunder, and judging it by
the oltl revenue of India, it may be
accurate. The remarkable fact in the
account is the amount raised by the
Land-tax- less than $30,000,000.

FRANCISCO.
From out of tlio sunds of that stin-
parched ih'sert which stretches across
our southwestern country tho Eilh Lo
Jini, Indian named, rises abruptly. For
many utiles the mountain lifts a barrier
across tho plain. Its precipitous Bides,
scarred and broken by crevices, or
rugged with fallen bowlders, render pan-
nago impossiblo (o all but the naked sav
ages wlio havo found there a home.
In these solitudes a fragment of (he
Navajo Indian tribe, under tho leadership of morose old Francisco, havo for
a long while Indulged their savage instincts. And whilo tho arm of tho law
it too strong for thorn to make open warfare, little provocation is needed to in-
cito them lo mischief unless detection
and punishment hang imminent.
Here and there in tho tortuous fastnesses a spring bubbles from tho rocks,
and along tlio water, before it sinks into
the sand, is found luxuriant pasturage
for the herds of Indian ponies.
Midway in ils extent tho mountain is
broken by a narrow pass through which
meanders an Indian trail. It was just
hero that several months ago an afternoon sun was scorching a party of young
surveyors. They had been riding aii
day across iho dusty plain and wero
eagerly looking now for tlio water at tho
foot of tlio mountain. A score of weary
pack animals, with drooping heads and
long ears flapping, wero picking their
way carefully over tho stony trail whilo
near Ihem rodo old Hamlin, the Mormon
packer, wilh his two Mexican assistants;
behind theso followed in singlo file Iho
young men of tlio corps.
Tho ringing crack of a driver's whip
now and then camo echoing back from
Iho clilTs along with tbo unintelligible
jargon of a Mexican urging on tho tired
mules. The tinkle-tinkle of lhc lead
mare's bell moved slowly on; llio dust
rose in clouds from fourscore feet; the
sun poured down between the narrow
walls, and as yet no sign of water had
been seen.
A youth named Jim Impatiently pushed
ahead in his eager search. Ho had not
gono far when ho sighted an Indian boy
riding leisurely through tho pass. All,
there was ono who could tell of tlio coveted spring. Pricking his liorso ho hurried to overtake tho littlo savage. Tho
boy roused up at tho sound of galloping
hoofs, and seeing a whilo man following
so. fast, without pausing to question his
intent, lashed the shaggy pony to tho
top of its speed.
"Hold on, there! Hold onl" Jim called
to liim, but if his voico reached the
frightened youngster ho gavo it no heed,
unless to urgo Iiis pony tho faster. Then
a freakish thought crossed tho young
man's mind, and spurring his horse wild-
'.y along tho trail ho began to utter war
whoops and shrieks that might have
startled oltl Francisco himself, had ho
been near.
Tho nimblo pony was making good
speed, but tlio littlo savage, fearing to be
caught and scalped, thought tlio mountain safer than tho saddle. Without
stopping his pony ho sprang lightly to
tho ground, ran up the hillsido and disappeared in tho bowlders nt tho foot of
tho cliff.
Jim could scarcely keep his saddle
with laughter for a few moments; then
he rode along the trail to whero tho littlo
fellow had disappeared and called to liim
to come down, that ho was a good white
man and wanted water. But ho might
us well have hailed a wild jack rabbit.
The pony checked his speed when the
rider left him, but still eluded the young
man's efforts to turn him back in tho
narrow pass. Tho pack train camo up,
and tho wild animal scurried ahead of it
until the pass had widened into tho valley. There ho was turned and sent
prancing back toward tho mountain.
But llio per verso littlo animal instead
of returning insisted now upou following
the train. Again and again the boys
(lashed at him, and away ho would go
for a moment', but presently his heels
would liy into tlie air and back ho would
come, frisking impishly, and through
tho rest of tho afternoon followed at a
distance.
A spring was found beforo sunset, and
camp was pitched for tho night by tlio
side of the water. Tho animals were
turned looso lo graze. Tho weary men
dropped upon tho ground, whilo the
cook busied himself preparing Bupper,
Presently a shadow fell across tho ground
where wo lay, and looking up we observed a solitary Indian approaching, a
blanket thrown over his shoulders and a
rifle on bis arm. It was so usual an occurrence that littlo hoed was given him;
for everywhere they frequent our camps,
begging incessantly for whisky, tobacco
and food. But when ho drew near and
made no request, nor even acknowledged
our salutation of "How," wo know that
his was another object, and that ho was
ill disposed.
Drawing his blanket round him, he
paused a littlo way off and stood as silent
as a specter. He was very tall and
straight, with finely chiseled features Instead of the brutal faco so common to
tho Indian. As he posed thero in the
t wilic 111,11 is picturesque garment draping
about liim, with rifle in  hand and the
long iliudo'.vo around. 1 could almost
fancy the spirit of Biawatha had risen.
Hy litis time suppei was ready, aud a
cup of coffee was poured and offered to
tlie Indian He neither accepted nor refused, but remained as motionless as if
he had been cast in bronze. Turning
presently and walking a few steps away,
lie uttered tbo long, tremulous call ofthe
coyote. An answering note came from
the hills near by and soon other Indians
appeared by ones and twos and joined
him about lhe lire. They continued to
straggle in until thirty had gathered
around us, and all were armed. Food
was offered tlicm, but not one accepted;
they wero not disposed to be friendly.
Niglit bad come and wilh it the cold
breeze from the mountains. The camp
fire blazed cheerily, and around it the
Navajos gathered, squatting upon their
haunches. Our men were weary with
tho day's ride, and afler the animals had
been picketed, drew out their blankets
and lay down about them, their baggage
under tlieir heads No other trouble was
expected if tho slock wero guarded from
stampede, for a body of troops lay at the
fort, threo days' journey from the mountain.
After the men had lain down lhe Indians drew closer around the firo/nowand
then gathering fuel, or speaking one to
another iu their own language. Wo lay
on the ground iu the shadow, but against
the darkness the swarthy figures of the
Navajos wero thrown in bold relief by
the firelight, and they wero not so far
away but (bat tlieir voices came to us.
What a dreamy picture it seemed n-
we fell usleep! The coppery figures
drawn about lhe lire, half concealed 1 >\
their gaudy blankets, lhc gleam of rifles,
tho sleeping men, the dusky animal form*
outlined in shadow, whilo off on tbe hills
a coyote barked at llio moon, which was
tinting the east and tho waste of desert
The picture was soon forgotten by the
boys, but the Mormon, ns was his duly
lay watching.
Presently the Indians formed in a hall
circlo about him that had first come In
us, and mado ready for a powwow
Hamlin knew then that our visitor was
the noted and dangerous Francisco. The
chief began lo speak to bis warriors in
Piute. It so happened that Hamlin had
been raised among the Piutes and understood tho language even better than
the Navajos lie heard Francisco recounting the wrongs o, his people; how
often their pastures had been wrested
from them, their horses and cattle stolen.
And now they were being followed
into tho desert. Only one moon before
two comrades luul been murdered on the
plain, antl by whom but these men? Today a pony had been driven from Ihe
mountains, to-morrow what outrage
might be expected? What should be
done? Thoy were thirty braves, the
I white men numbered seven. Horses
I were hero, food, rifles and powder; one
! bold stroke and all would be theirs.
The boys had lieen Bleeping some hours,
when Hamlin wakened tbo nearest one
I wilh a touch. 'S-h-ll-hl" bo whispered.
"Danger!" In an instant overy nerve
was si rung, antl ho would havo risen
but the Mormon pressed him down. The
Mexicans were already whispering together, and soon lhe entire party was
on the alert.
Wo were slill in the shadow, though
the moon was shining now. My first
glance was toward the lire. All the Indians had vanished but two, who were
squatting before the smoldering embers
as thoy had been earlier in tho night.
"The -Navajos havo gone behind the
ridge," we were presently told, "and
these two remain lest wo bhould suspect
something wrong, and be on our guard
or get away." Then tho Mormon told us
what ho had overheard. Francisco had
planned to attack us just before day
when most likely tho entire party would
ho sleeping. They had withdrawn the
more surely lo take us unawares, and
had crossed I lie ridge in order to conceal
tlieir lire.
Ho had heard more; news had most
probably reached the fort of the murder
of tho two Indians, and a squad of soldiers been dispatched to investigate the
matter, for a detachment was in cainpnl
tho Chez-a-kla spring, only ten miles
away. It was then 11 o'clock; a man
must start off at once to notify the lieutenant. Even if tho troopsdid not airive
beforo the Indians returned wo might be
ablo to defend ourselves for awhile till
succor should come.
One of the boys was selected as messenger. None of us bad yet risen from
the ground; the Navajos thought us sleeping. Tlio lad began to slide off in the
grass, and presently reached tho edgo of
a littlo gulch undiscovered. Thero he
dropped orer and under shelter of the
rocks made good his escape. It is needless to say wo did not sleep again. Every
eyo and ear was on tho alert and every
riflo in hand. Now and then a coyote
slunk near, and the uncertain shadow
gavo our nerves a thrill, or if his mate
called wo fancied tho Navajos were signaling. Tho suspense so wrought upon
tho nerves of the party that they would
gladly have followed Hamlin to surprise
tho Indians tn I heir camp; but the watchers were near. A suspicious movement
on our part, antl they would havo vanished liko phantoms; or the crack of a
rifle the whole hand would bo upon us.
Hamlin, too, grow restless as wo lay
there, and presently crept near to us.
Ho had been considering tho chances of
tho troops arriving in time to bo of service. Thc Chez-a-kla was ten miles away,
and even wero the detachment still there
they could not reach us beforo 8 o'clock.
It was tho day beforo when tho Indians
had seen (hem, but had they remained!
It was doubtful if tlio lad could follow
the trail aright, and, besides, the Navajos might attack us at any moment.
Hamlin had nerves liko the rest of us;
perhaps he had more. Ho was a gaunt,
muscular man, who had been reared
among the Piutes, where his father had
been sent a Mormon missionary. Having enjoined us strictly to lie quiet, he
raised up and yawned, as though but
just wakened from sleep.
"Hello, there! If you are going to sit
by my fire, why don t you keep it burning?" lie called out to tho pair who were
yet squatting about the embers. "You
trifling, lazy buck, uow you keep that

' Art. up till lay, or Til Ink* my cowhide
and drive you off!"
The blue crackled and the sparks flew
j up as he piled the fuel on, while the two
: moved back somewhat. Drawing bis
' blanket about his shoulders, Hamlin
* squatted near them, shivering and pre-
; tending to be cold. Presently he spoke,
inquiring after some Mormon friends
who had been among the Navajos.
"Are you Mormon man?" one of them
asked.     It  was  just   the  question   he
wanted.    Certainly he  was a Mormon,
I and knew so and so, aud his father was
' old Hamlin, whom all lhe Navajos knew.
"Then you  ought to be ashamed, a
Mormon man, to work for Pellicanoes!"
said one.     "Pellicanoes are thieves: they
I steal Indians' ponies."
With this, conversation began in Na-
j vajo fashion, and as they talked, Hamlin
1 moved  slowly nearer,  until they  were
j face to face.  The bright fire threw them
i in high light, and beyond were the un
i certain   shadows.     From  the darkness
came the long, wavering call of the coyote, and ever and anon we were startled
as some browsing pony clinked the  pebbles in his way.    The suspense grew  intolerable aa the moments slipped  past
and the time drew near when the Navajos
would return.    And what could Hamlin
mean?  Was he seeking favor on his own
account?    Was he about to desert ub?
A comrade touched me, and pointed to
the placo of the two drivers a little way
off in the shadow. Their blankets were
on the ground, but peering intently, I
saw them to be empty. The Mexicans bad
slipped off in the darkness undiscovered.
Hamlin must be informed at once, and
I raised on my elbow to call. Perhaps
he heard me move, for tbe next moment
he sprang at a Navajo's throat like a
wildcat. His companion uttered a single
"Yip!" and leaped to his feet, but before
his weapon could be used was pinioned
by the two Mexicans. Hamlin had
seized the larger, and as we ran up they
were clenched and struggling.
The two were quickly gagged and
bound. The Mexicans wished to dispatch them at once, but milder counsels
prevailed.
We were uncertain if the camp beyond the ridge had heard the warning
note, and with all haste threw the saddles and more valuable packs upon the
animals, sprang to our places and hurried along the obscure and difficult trail.
We rode with whip and spur through
sand and sagebrush, over stones and
gulches, across fallen timber; a mad,
wild race, as fast as beasts could struggle. After tho iutense night of watching action was relief; we could have
jumped from a precipice, charged a battery or fought a band of grizzly bears.
On and on we urged the train; one
mile passetl, two, then three; by that
timo we were shaken with ths perilous
ride, the animals were panting, and our
speed slackened Another mile and a
call was heard. Wo paused to listen.
Were tho Navajos following, or was it a
friend? A moment and another whoop
camo ringing, and there was a sound of
galloping hoofs. Tlio voice was familiar,
and wo scntnii answer echoing across
tho plain
In a few minutes we were with friends.
Tlie lad had reached the Chez-a-kla and
roused the camp, then mounted a horse
aud was guiding the bluecoats back to
our aid.
Tho next day Francisco was followed
Into the mountains and shortly afterward captured; but instead of taking
him to tho fort for trial we called his
people together and held a grand powwow, Hamlin explained how the pony
had followed us, and the lieutenant declared that he had been sent to seek and
punish tho murderers of the two Navajos. Then a present of tobacco was
given, we each whiffed from Francisco's
dirty pipe, and, aa the story books say,
all lived happily together ever after, for
as long as we worked in that region they
were our friends. —John Willis Bays iu

Vmki Mhmp Meets   u Stranger Who Talks
About John  It.  Fellows.
The other day I ut down to dinner iu the
Halt house at  Louisville    Next to me sat a
Ktleman whom at first sight I thought I
w. The second look and his own glance
of uorocognlrion at me showed me that I
was mistaken. After a few moments I saw-
why lt was that I thought I recognized him.
He bore a singular likeness to tho cartoons of
Mr. John R. Fellows, tho district attorney of
New York. Fellow.' picture had appeared
la many of the comic papers, and mv neighbor at tbe dinner table bore a great reaejn-
blanee to the cartoons.    At lost 1 said.
"Do you know that you look very much
like John R. Fellows, of New York!"
"Yes," he answered; "I have often b^-eii
taken for him.   Do you know himi"
"No, I do not; but I have seen a good many
pictures of him In the papers.    Do you know
himr-
"1 am slightly acquainted with liim. 1 regret to say."
"Theu he Is not a friend of yours.'''
"On the contrary, an enemy."
'"Well, it must be rather embarrassing t"
look like a person's worst enemy.'
"Oh, I don't kuow that Fellow, is my
worst enemy, although perhaps he Is."
"Then I Imagine you didn't vote for him un
the occasion of that memorable straggler
"No, sir; 1 did not. Still, I did not veto
for Mr. Nicoll, to It is a sort of 'saw oil" be
tweeu Fellows and myself."
"Well, I would have gone further, I would
hare voted for Nicoll. My bymputliies were
with bin In the contest."
"Theu you are not a New York maul"
"No, I'm from Detroit."
"Ahl I did not think a local election would
have had any interest so far west."
"Far west! Bless you, Detroit is not far
west. Detroit Is au eastern city. It has the
stability of the east, with the enterprise of
tbe west."
"Must be a wonderful town."
"Oh, It ia   What Is Nicoll doing now i"
"I believe he is practicing law. Ho is u
good lawyer."
"I should think you would havo been sorry
you did not vote for him when you must have
felt that it was the right thing to do."
"Well, uone of us do as wo should, yuu
know. Besides, a person seems to see thesu
things clearer after tbey are over than he
does at the time. Anyhow, it would not have
made any difference with the result."
"That's so. Bytho way, what sort of adis-
trict attorney is Fellows making? How does
the average man regard him!"
"Well, it's like this. Fellows is very much
like the rest of ns. He is neither as good as
bis friends try to make liim out, nor Is lie as
bad as you or I might think bim to be. In a
word, he's human. He likes bis frleuds and
tries to give Ills enemies as good ns they
•end,"
"I suppose you know that?"
"Well, I ought to.    Fellows has douo me a i
good deal of harm in his time, nnd yet I will
say this for him, that if I wanted a dollar 1
don't know any man who would let me have
it quicker than John R. Fellows."
"I don't wonder a mnn like that is popu-
lar."
"That's the sort of man ho Is.   Now, bo j
knows very well what I think of htm, yet ho
would just as soon take a drink with me ns
with you."
The stranger nnd myself then talked on
other subjects. I found him to be a very
well informed man nnd a most fascinating
talker. Ho was in fact one of the most genial
men I ever met.
The next day I was paralyzed to read llio
following item iu the Courier-Journal:
"John R. Fellows, the district attoruoy of
New York city, passed through Louisville.
yesterday on his way east. He stopped at
the Oalt house and left on the L. and N. train
at midnight, Mr. Fellows bos beon visiting
his family, who have spent the winter at New
Orleans. He thinks Louisville is a wonderful
city, with a great future. He said that lm
regretted very much not having had time to I
meet some of tbe city's prominent mon, but
added that he hud beeu very much enter- '
tabled by a Detroit man whom he had the
pleasure of meeting at the Oalt yesterday nt
dinner."—Luke Sharp In Detroit Free Press. |
The Platte Illvcr.
Tile Tlatto river is a queer stream, it has
a very large circulation, but very Utile influence. It covers a good deal of ground, but Is
not deep. In some places it is a mile wide
and three-quarters of an inch deep. It has a
bed of qtueksand, winch assists it very much
in drowning people. The Platte makes very
little fuss about it, but succeeds in belugquite
fatal You might cross tho river without
even getting your lioso wet, and then again
you might find that In crossing the stream
you bad struck an entirely uew country, from
whose bourne uo traveler returns.—Bill Nye

A "Painter" Let Oo.
Every sailor has his story of tbe mistakes which "landlubbers" make over
' the names of things at sea, which always
; seem to be exactly the opposite of what
i they are on land.   A sheet, for instance,
instead of being something broad, like a
sheet of cloth or a sheet of water, is nothing but a rope.
A new boy had come on board a West
India ship, upon which a painter had
also been employed to paint the ship's side.
Tho painter was at work upon a staging
' suspended under the ship's item.   The
captain, who had just got into a boat
alongside, called out to the new boy, who
stood leaning over the rail:
"Let go the painter!"
Everybody should know that a beat's
painter is the rope which makes it fast,
but this boy did not know it.   He ran
aft and let go the ropes by which the
painter's stage was held.
Meantime the captain wearied with
waiting to be oast off.
"You rascal!" be called; "why don't
you let go the painter?"
"He's gone, sir," said the boy, briskly;
"he's gone, pots, brushes and all!"—
Youth's Companion.
Till. Oo** at a Record.
John Lewis, one of the pioneers of
Calaveras county, Cal., tells of a remarkable shot that he once made. It's a true
story, too. For many months a fox had
been playing havoo witb Mr. Lewis'
hens, and do what he would he could
not catch or shoot the fellow. There was
a big tree, about 800 feet long, that had
fallen just above his cabin, and when be
tried to shoot tbe fox the sly beast would
dodge around the upturned roots, sueal-
along the further sido of the tree until it
reached the top and then make a bolt
and escape. One moonlight night Lewis
heard a commotion among the liens, and
running out with his gun saw the fox,
as usual, slip around the root end ef tbe
tree. He raised his gun and with tbe
muzzle followed along the tree at about
the rate he thought the fox would travel,
and when the muzzle cleared the upper
end of the tree he fired into the shadow.
Then he went back to bed. The next
morning lie went out to the tree top, and
there lay the dead fox, riddled with
buckshot.—SanI^Tsnoiaco Call.

Where Woman Excels.
When a woman has a hen to drive into the
coop, she takes hold uf her skirts with both
hands, shakes them quietly at tbe delinquent
and says: "Shoo, there!" The hen takes ouo
look at the object to assure herself that it Is a
woman, and tben stalks majestically into tho
coop. A man doesn't do it that way. Ho
goes outdoors saying: "It's singular nobody
can drive a hen but me I" and picking up a
stick of wood, hurls it at the offending biped
and yells: "Get In there, you thief I" The
ben Immediately loses her reason and dashes
to the other end of the yard. The man
plunges after hor. She comes back with her
head down, her wings out and followed by a
miscellaneous assortment of stove wood,
fruit cans, clinkers, and a very mad man In
the rear.
Then she skims under tbe barn and over a
tenet or two and around the house back to
the coop again, all the while talking as only
an excited hen can talk, and all the while followed by things convenient for throwing,
and by a man whose coat is on tbe sawbuck,
whose hat Is on the ground and whose perspiration Is limitless. By this time the other
bens bave come out to take a hand In the de-
bat* and help dodge missiles. The man vows
that every hen on the place shall bo sold at
once, putt on his hat and coat and goes down
town. The woman comos out, goes right to
work and has every one of those hens housed
and counted Inside of two minutes.—Mobile

Mr. 13. P. Hutchinson has a promising son
l-aac, of whom this story is told: ''OKI
Hutch," as the world calls him, was seated
ono afternoon ou tho fence surrounding it
piece of his property upon which a comfortable dwelling house wns being put up. The
veteran merchant was whittling a stick nf
wood and superintending the actions of "Ike,"
who, under his instructions, was transferring
a lot of laths from the open air to tho Interior
of the tinlinlslied house iu a wheelbarrow. It
wus not an easy task. Anybody who ha?
tried it knows how hard it is to wheel a barrow up a single plunk. Hut "Voting Hutch"
was performing the job creditably.
Old Hutch watched nud whittled for
awhile in silence. Then au idea struck him,
and he lumbered down off the fence and approached Ids perspiring son.
"Ike," said lie. "you know as much as nn
oyster."
Iko made nn reply, but looked a little sulky.
"Seo here," went on the old mau, "don'l
you seo that you can get twice as many lathi
onto that wheelbarrow if you pile them
crosswise instead of lengthwise, us you've
been doing? .fllst watch me, and seo the load |
I'll tako in there."
Tho boy silently watched his father laboriously pile up tho sticks. When ho started
the wheelbarrow slowly up the plank a by-
stander might have perceived a fiugo grin ol
delight spreading itself over "Young Hutch's'
features.
When Old Hutch reached tho brick dour-
way ho stopped. U'by! Well, becauso when
piled crosswise, the laths wero too long to permit tho wheelbarrow to enter. Tho old man
turned slowly round and mopped his brow
with a red silk handkerchief.
Old Hutch looked at Young Hutch.
Young Hutch looked at Old Hutch.
"Father," said tho younger of the twain,
deliberately, "you don't know as much as ths
shell of an oyster."
Tiio old man told tho Century club crowd
all about lt the next day, and vowed, as he
related tho circumstance, that Ike would be
a bigger man than his brother Charley some
day.—Chicago Tribune.

we much question whether a better it ira*

Anglo-Indian home. Tlie oilier brands, we '
are happy lo say, are now relegated to lb.
native bautars, and judging bom their »alet
we fancy Iheir sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances

Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhtr,

Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a. general Sedative, that hnve occurred

years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera iiself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -.ny other foim of thi.

conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
.•Is., from a sense ol duly we owe to the pro*)
fission antl the public, as we are ofthe
