A  Maniac's  Poem, , <
Probably the mass of prison poetry
which has,been written on s-ycls and
bedposts, and scratched en pri��o:i walls
far exceeds that which has found expression on paper, and-many a "mute,
inglorious Milton'' has begun and finished his poetical career with those
"lost to sight" productions'.
There is in existences short poem,
said to have been scratched by a
maniac on the wall of his cell, which
runa thus: -    ,
Could I with ink the ocean fill.
"Were all the world of parchment.made,
Wore every, reed on earth a quill
Anc] every man a scribe by trade,    \
To write the/love ol* God alone
Would drain that ocean dry;
Nor could the scroll contain the whole,
Though stretched from sky to sky.
���The. authenticity of this being the
work of a maniac has often been questioned because of the beauty of its expression and. irs sound reason, but the
story stands.���All (he Year tJRound.

'ving Iloberr. the Bruce, according to
the'-well known story, once owed his
safety ,to a spider. Among the ^Tartars of central"Asia there is a belief
that one of 'their khans or chiefs was
pi-p'sprved, long years ago, by the great
horned owl. ' He h.id hidden in n
thicket" 1o avoid- capture by some enemies. ' By and by-his pursuers came to
this spot. ' ' il
The'first thing they saw^whs an owl
sitting on a bush. What did this mean?
It signiiiod in their eyes that this bird
would iiot rest quietly thcrejf any man
were lying concealed close by. Therefore they argued that the khan could
not be, there, and so they hurried on
to soarclr'fo) him elsewhere. ' At nightfall the khan made his way to 'the
en nip of his men'and ,told them, how
"he had been saved from''certain death.
His slory caused ,them ever afterward
to' look upo.i the owl with reverence
aud love. They wore, ,iis feathers' in
their,caps as a. pledge,of victory.

have tried the cough mixtures which

may do well ,enou"gh for slight colds,,

erless 'in! the .presence   of serious  disease.
Dr. Chfise[-s 'Syrup of'.Linseed and Turpentine is far more than a cough -ciii-

'  ' What  made  the  ill omened  birds  so  , madly  merry?" What was the joke?  ' Effie's trust? ' Billy's gratitude? ^-They  failed to explain? but their amusement  was huge and .sardonic.    \ ' ���������  "Drive them away, Billy," cried Ef-  - fie, and the obedient king dropped his  '. ax and threw a faggot of wood at the  tree, which stopped the laughter and  dispersed the merrymakers.       '-* ,  "Billy tired-" now," said the black  grinning. "Too much work���������plenty  wood," and he pointed to the result  of his labor. *" Y       '  "Yes. that will be enough, thank  you. You're a good boy. I'll give you  some tobacco." ���������  "Billy's thirsty."  "Then you shall have some tea.**  ,  "No tea.   Rum."  "No. Billy. Rum isn't good for you."  ,   "Good for miners; good for Billy."  "No, it's not good for miners," said  Effie emphatically. "It makes them  fight and say wicked things."  "Makes black fellow feel good," declared Billy rolling his dusky eyes.  This last argument was effective.  Effie went,into her hut���������her father had  returned to his work���������and poured a  little spirits from John Archer's flask  Into a pannikin. Billy drank the  spirits with'rolling eyes, smacked his  lips and then lay -down in the shadow  of the hut to sleep.  The long afternoon passed very slowly for Effie- Her few trifling duties  as housekeeper, were.soon-done. The  little but .was tidied and the simple  evening meal prepared and some hours  must pass before her father returned.  How could she pass the time? She  had only, two books���������a Bible and a  volume of stories for little girls, which  she had won as a prize at school in  Brisbane. But she was too young to  appreciate the first, especially as the  type was very small and it was difficult  reading, and she had. grown beyond  appreciating the stories for little girls,  having known them by heart, three  years before. She would like to have  slept Everything around her suggested and invited the siesta���������the steady  heat, the brightness of the" light without the hut, the distant murmur of  miners' voices which came, from beyond yonder belt of wattle gums, th������  monotonous bum of tbe locusts in the  forest, the occasional fretful cry of a  strange bird and the regular snores of  the fallen king, who slumbered in the  shade of the but. Even the buzz of the  annoying flies assisted tbe general effect and brought drowsiness.  To  remain   still   for a  few  minutes  would   have   meant  inevitably   falling  T asleep.'  Effie felt this and remembered  ) the "little gold  nugget.     If she  slept,  some thief might come and take it. And  so she put on her hat and, forsaking  the seductive cool and shade of the hut,  , went put into the brightness and heat  Archer's but stood on the edge of the  valley,   over  against  the /foot  of  the  blue, heavily/timbered hills.    About 50  yards'distant'from  it/ hidden  among  the trees, was a high moss grown rock,  at the base of which Effie had discovered the smallest and sweetest of natural  springs.  Thither the child ran���������looking  back often to see that no one approached the hut in her absence���������to bathe her  face.    In a few "minutes she returned,  drying her lace'in her apron arid shaking her wet hair in. the sun. , Xo one  had  come,  but  King  Billy   was  now  awake and was slouching lazily off toward the bush.    Eflie laughed as she  saw him, his'great head bent'forward  and his thin, narrow shoulders bowed.  She  laughed  to think 'of  his  laziness  and< that he should look so tired after  such a very little^ wood chopping.  She was, stilP laughing at King Billy  as she opened the old workbox to take  another peep at the yellow, treasure  and to make quite sure that' the 'heat  hadn't melted it awaj*-. And it ,was  quite slowly that tho laugh died from  her pretty'eyes and mouth���������quite slowly because of the moments it took to  realize and accept a misfortune so ter-'  .db'le���������when she lifted the coarse'sock's  and looked and saw no little gold nugget, .saw ^nothing. Then,horror and  great fear grew, in the blue eyes, and  pale agony crept over the childish face  and'made i't old, and the poor little  heart seemed to stop beating. * ���������  Effie said nothing and made no'cry,  but she closed , her eyes tightly ' for a  moment and looked in\the,b,ox again..  No, it "was no illusion.   The little nugget 'was not there.    The first gold fher  father had found, which had beenun-  ytrustod fo'h'er care, which was to have  been taken to her mother���������it was gone.  She  put  down   the*/ box' quite' quietly  and walked out into.the day.   But the  sun  was  shining  very strangely, and  mistily  now,   and   the 'blue  sky   had  ,grown black.'and the trees seemed.to'  move  weirdly,   and   the   locusts   had  ceased., humming, from   fear,   but the  strange* bird "was, somewhere   near,  shrieking"brokenly:,."What will father"  say? , What"will father say?" _.  ,   But as the-child stood there despairing  her  sight  grew, clearer,  and  she  saw a black figure among the trees,  and  she,' was  conscious  of a. pair of  dusky,eyes watching"her through the  leaves, '  Then   only   she  remembered,  and she knew who,had done this cruel  .thing. .' King Billy!' <And she' had been  kind to him.   Eflie suddenly burst into  passionate sobbing.    The black figure  ;still   hovered, "among  the  trees,   often  changing  its* position,  and  the "dusky  ,-eyes still  peered  through   the  leaves.  And the "laughing jackasses flew down  to the old tree again and laughed more  madly than before���������laughed at Effie'a  trust, at Billy's gratitude!  *        * *        ������.        -������ ��������� *  It was 10 o'clock, and darkness and  quiet reigned in' John Archer's hut.  Over among tbe'tents behind the wat  tie gums a few gamblers and heavj  drinkers were still awake, and then  voices, raised in anger or ribald mer  riment, might occasionally have been  faintly heard from the but. But Archer, who had sown his wild oats, was  a true worker, and he'had bis little  daughter,,for whose sake he had built  the hut away from the noisy camp.  -Archer had come home late and  weary,, as usual, had eaten his supper  and gone to rest without, to Effie's intense relief, speaking of the little gold  nugget The child was afraid to speak  of the loss, and she was not without  vague hopes that a beneficent Providence would restore the nugget during  the darkness and save her from this  great trouble.  For this she prayed very earnestly  before she lay down to sleep. Or did  she sleep at all that night? She never  quite knew. But she thinks that it  was then that she first experienced  that terrible purgatorial condition  which is neither wakefulness nor  sleep when the body and mind are  weary enough to bring the profound  sleep which they require, but which  the brain is too overladen and too  cruelly active to allow, when dreams  seem realities and realities dreams.  It must have been a dream when she  saw something small and yellow float  through the tiny window on the ghostly silver moonbeams. And yet when,  having closed her eyes, she opened  them,again it" was still there, hovering  about in the darkness, less bright now  and with a pale yellow halo. But. it  faded quite away. It was a cruel;  mocking dream. ..:"'  Then was it a dream when the old  curtain which divided her corner of  the hut from her father's moved near  the ground, bulged slightly toward  he,r? It would"be curious to see, and  she lay still. From under the curtain  seemed to come a thin arm and slowly, cautiously, after the arm a head  with a great shock of hair. And the  moonbeams just touched a face. 1  think they kissed it, though it wa������  black, for they found in a black band  the little yellow object which had  floated in the first dream.  It was all so real, so beautiful, that  the child lay still,, scarce daring, to  breathe lest the vision should mell  away, and when in her dream came  the voice of,her father with the words,  "Speak, or I'll fire!" her lips refused td  open. ';  But it was no dream when the shot  came and- the black king rolled oyer  on the earth dead, with the little gold  nugget he had come to restore pressed  in the death agony against his heart,  where, too, was a little gold.  And -the laughing birds in the old  tree, startled from their sleep by the  shot, laughed once more, wildly and  madly, at Billy's honesty.���������Exchange.

They say that tlieir hands  do not lose their 'cunning, but that their  minds refuse to , frame comical scenes  and situations. They must turn out a  certain amount of grist, however, and on  such occasions have recourse to the numinous tipster. He is usually a literaly  iree lance; with some'knack of humor.  The "most 'successful jirc ^tkose, who contribute funny pa'ragraptis. stories and  sketches to the humorous weeklies or the  humorous columns of'daily papers and  magazines. ",   _ ��������� '  'In New York there<are at least'50,'of  whom probably'one-half sell tips or enter'  into business-- relations with  the artists.  Where tips" a re sold they bring from $1 to  'S'S.and they averaj/e $2~eacli.    It-is generally a'cash .transaction. i Equally common is'the practice of going halves upon^  ��������� mi ulca.^ In this catsi-.tl.t* tipsier makes a-  schodlboy, sketch and on a separate sheet  writes the reading matter to accompany*  it.   The artist thereupon makes a finished  picture.     If   the   publication   uses   black*  ar.d white and no color, the drawing is  purchased and the artist absolved of 'further responsibility.    If, however, the publication  has  a  color  pi ess.  the  artist is  often called upon to oversee tho press arrangements as to the distribution of the  various inks.    In tho former case the artist  and  tipster  equally  divide the   price  paid.    In the latter the artiste receives a  somqwhat larger share. ���������"   -  The business pays fairly well so far as  the time consumed is concerned. A man  with grotesque fancies will often conceive  a dozen tipsuin an hour, but.it may he  several days or works beforei he can do  it again. The most successful tipster is  said to clear .$1,000 a year. An ordinary  tipster makes one-half or one-third as  much. During a political campaign there  , is a big demand for cartoons.' and prices  go higher. Tips for these cartoons will  often bring ?*5 and $10. and when they  have been worked out upon the partnership principle they have netted as high  as $100.  ElciV Coolies Ge't Free Burial.

If we didn't all contract to do that  none of us would carry a cooly, not if we  offered them fiee passage, so we promise  to supply a "chop dollar" coffin in case of  death and to carry the- cooly back to the  poit from which he sailed, and that costs  money.  This business hadn't gone on a month  before the cooly saw his chance to beat  the company and began to do it.

The Old Fashioned Grandmother, the  One Who,Placidly Sat In the Chimney Corner Darning Stockings, Is a  Thing of the Past.  I was bemoaning the fact that'I had  never known my grandmothers. One  died before I was born and the other  when I was a few months' old. I  thought>it would be*so comforting to  have a grandmother because they al-  ways regarded ��������� their grandchildren as  being incapable cf doing wrong. ' 'At  ieast they were ���������'sure to multiply one's  virtues ,and minimize, faults. Their  chief object in life, as I picture them,  was-to minister to their descendants'  comfort, to make the crooked places  straight. The grandmother of myi fancy would keep my clothes in repair,  darn' the stockings,, knit plenty of wash-  rags and silk mittens.-surprise me with  my favorite dishes, laugh at my jokes  and generally submerge her life1, in the  affairs of mine. What was I going to  do in return for all this unselfish devotion? T would be her granddaughter.  That, according to the old traditions,  was quite enough compensationY  I was holding forth, exploiting my  views and. desires on.tlie grandmother  question in the presence of one of those  people Who delight to take a* person  down and1, make him' feel cheap, especially if % they imagine one is posing as  .younger than the family Bible records.  This   individual   spoke  up  and' said:  "Why,' if your grandmothers were living they would be ,so aged that they  -would be mummified. 'Instead,of darn-'  ing your stockings, knitting^ your mittens, they would be blind,1 deaf and imbecile.'1 You twould have to tend them  with greater slavishness than a mother  a   newborn   babe,   and,  without   the  sweet .recompense in .the, latter case.  When 'people 'become ^imbecile "with  age, they, grow repulsive, and the prolonging of this- state is dreadful, while  each**day the unfolding of a<,budding  life is filled with mysterious delights."  ,. Of course I did not want sl grandmother that was deaf^ blind and imbe-������  .cile'.   I thought I,would drop the subject, as it-appeared to be getting personal.   But my companion-continued:  "Besides, could it "be possible in*the order of things"for you to.have a .vigor- ,  .ous, industrious, capable grandmother,  she would not be sitting at the chimney  corner  darning-your, stockings.'-  She  would be'out attending to her lo'dge* or  'club* business, -'visiting  the'millinery >  opeuings.'prdering a fashionablergown,  playing'cards or attending ra high tea.  The old-fashioned grandmother is as,  much ai thing of 'the pasf as the "spin-"  "ning wheel, * the canalboat. stagecoach,  making' ca*hdles  and  family  rendered  soap." '    '       ,  "*  I protested that I did not believe'my  grandmothers would be of the modern  pattern. <I had heard my mother tell  often'of .how'completely her mother  lost her taste for society and outside  affairs after she bad grandchildren.  She had raised a large family, but  these reproductions .were just as much  a delight as had been the origiuals. She  infinitely preferred their society to that  of grown people. Their prattle, school  experiences, little ambitions, filled her  life completely. She was constantly  planning surprises for them'by making  animal cakes, individual pies, candy,  aprons, hoods, doll clothes.  "Yes, but if she lived now she would  be different. 'The air she would breathe  is filled with assertive germs which declare.that every woman owes it to herself to have a career and stand at the  helm and steer it to the very end.' She  must not allow her life to be submerged in that of .-her .own children, as they  make their appearance rather unwelcome frequently, but must have outside  missions. As soon as her offspring is  married off, wh'ich is accomplished  with as great dispatch as diplomacy  can secure, then she is free to carry out  pet schemes and natural desires un-  trammeled."  "Perhaps you are right," 1 replied.  Such a grandmother as this would be  do comfort to me as a grandmother,  while"* she might be a most helpful  friend, and. I could be proud of her position in the literary, artistic or philanthropic world as her tastes might dic-  tateher pursuit.  A grandmother of my acquaintance  said to me not long ago: "It would be a  great trial to me to have my grandchild ren or any children in the house  with me now. 1 could not adapt myself to their demands and interrupt  lions. I have raised my family and  now want my time for individual pursuits." This woman has especial talents and necessities for ; using them,  and in her case these feelings may not  seem unnatural. But this is much the  sentiment that possesses the grand-  roothprs of the age who have no special  missions or avocations outside the domestic circle. If they have moans,  they buy handsome gifts for their  grandchildren and wish them to have  all the advantages possible that do not  represent personal self sacrifice or curtailment of freedom of action.  Women are Imbued with the spirit of  the age, which demands that there  shall be no old ladies with caps and  shawls who stay at home and guard  tbe fireside, but that they must keep in  tbe race with the young people to the  very   end.���������Susan   W.

But in winter 'ajUest'.is,  often   macle  where the  fullest sunshine \  streams' into.it,     ,, -    ' *     * /''';    j  Brooding is throughout"^ full of quaint'*  surprises.1', Eggs   will   hatch  if  kept   at  blood, heat,- GS degrees.   But they .'hatch ,.  more, certainly   and   turn   ont   stronger',  clucks if the temperature,, is-a degree or.,  so higher.   -Just how ,it is done nobody  knows, but mother hens some way contrive to raise the normal heat *of .tlieir  bodies  to   the 'requisite  pitch.    Further,  they strip the wholo breast of feathers, so  the  eggs  may   have  the  benefit  of  full1  heat.   Twice a day they turn over every  egg in the nest, cuddling them separately  up underneath their beaks, making little  soft   half   fretful 'chuckling   noises   the-  while.  liens are most uncalculating egg stealers.   All eggs in sight will be drawn into-,  the  nest,   though  tV*-   stolen eggs  may-  crowd out those legitimately there.   Still-  in a way hens take stock of what they  brood.   With few eggs they sit prim, with-  trimly folded wings.  With too many "they  sprawl   all   over   the   nest,   wings 'loose  enough to let light between the- feathers,  and   frequently    turn   themselves   about  reaching for uncovered eggs and drawing,  them underneath the breast. (     ,  A hen of average size cannot profitably:  cover more than 15 eggs. In cold weathen  13 is a better limit, although in midsummer the same hen might brood and hatch  20. Left to themselves, the unchecked instinct of egg stealing with hens is apt to  result in a nest full of spoiled eggs, withi  maybe one or two feeble chicks.  Twenty-four hours of brooding makes-  hardly a perceptible change in an egg.  Sometimes in warm weather there is the  least reddish tinge beside the whitish clot  in which the germ lies. After 3G hours  the clut shows a well defined drop of very  red blood. In two days the blood drop has  spicad to veins and arteries. At tho end  of ten days the head is fairly well formed, though the trunk is still ragged. Iu  two weeks the chick is recognizable as  a chick, aud if the shell envelope is broken will quiver all through and feebly  move the.;head.. It has. however, no vestige of the downy coatit will wear a little later.  The coat forms rather rapidly.  The period of incubation for a chicken  is 21 days, and for two days before leaving the shell the young fowl is practically*  perfect Yet it ���������would not live Were the  shell forcibly removed. It spends the last  two days gathering viral force to make-  its own way, out into the world. It lies  pnug within the shell, the head bent upon  the breast in such a position as brings the*  beak full against the shell.  The beak is armed with a tiny detachable piece of horn, flint hard and set upon-  the very tip of the upper mandible. At  full hatching time the chick presses this-  triangle against the brittle shell and.  breaks a triangle hole in it, possibly a  quarter of an inch across. An hour later  the chick, having turned itself slightly,  presses the beak against a new,spot and  makes a fresh break. As more air comes,  in the little creature, grows stronger. It  writhes still more strongly in its. prison,.''  turning always from left to. right. In  two hours or ten it breaks the shell in  two and slips out into the nest, a wet and  weary sprawler.  Egg production varies enormously. A  hen's capacity is about 400 eggs, divided'  pretty equally through the first three  years of her existence. . :  . 1.  >"���������  -<  ,   I  J  - I  *  *   Y-y  T  *t->  ,r- -'Y  V  J  ���������*  iK  i  .. -'���������Lj  il"  *���������"*��������� <*������J  I*1-  ,  ���������*   C '   i*  ( f  -  '   .'l<^  n^  *j  fl[*i'  ���������^  5  >  '- *rY  -  -'���������"#  J\(  \A  f  ,  ,-Hi*  --  a"  <*���������  ���������i , >  11 -, ���������^������.r Tirr:lTWi,Ti.ii<r*-l'J'J*,-J* "'"'���������''���������i"-  ^.T-^rt<������r?*������ t������������. ^i,ifiKr^,t,P!->:y*T'1''-1'^'' aagjafafcEu ad-ifc'u^'"*������,t!S^^&5i������i,sr^  2������j^a*saa3s*JB^*r!fi^fcW  <l  ,i t>  C, H.

If the Yaquis came through the  mountain pass, they would approach  the works, two miles distant, by way  of two ravines which led quite to our  doors. In some1 places these ravines  .were only six or seven feet deep, In  others' over 30, with stone walls on  either side. Under the direction of. a  civil engineer powder and dynamite  charges were' hidden away in these  walls and buried in the earth and wires  connected with the power house and  an electric battery.  Had it been possible to buy the  friendship of the Yaquis we should  have attempted it and thus secured  our safety, but,we knew they were  not. to be tempted by anything we  could offer. We had been working  ful 1 force for th ree m on tbs. with an  alarm now and then, when we learned  .why we bad not been disturbed by  raiding parties. The whole fighting  force of the Yaquis, numbering between 4.000 and 5,000. was gathering  for a grand effort to sweep across the  mountains and clear the country to the  Rio Grande. This bad been the dream  of the chief for years, and bis people  had been treasuring up rifles and ammunition. When the force was finally  ready to move, the Mexican government was powerless to stop It except  on the north, and it was too late to  sond out anything like a general alarm.  ���������The 4,000 well armed savages, knowing no mercy, fell, upon prospector,  freighter, hunter, miner and ���������villager,  and not a man escaped from their  hands. Almost by accident we got  .word of the movement, and the mine  was closed, the peons were sent away,  and we prepared for a siege. Lookouts were established along both ra-  .vines,, and we had four days in which  to hoar the tales of panic stricken  fugitives who passed our way.  The Yaquis had no pity for age, sex  or condition. They found tbe people  almost defenseless, and when they bad  captured a village every man, woman  and child was put to the torture. Every habitation was burned, live stock  was slaughtered, and  even  the dogs  and cats were kjlled.   The Idea was to  leave nothing alive behind' them. .The  army did not push  forward at swift  pace, but dallied along and spent hours  witnessing the torture of its  victims  We knew when tbe Indians finally entered ' the , mountain    pass,     headed  straight for us, and it was half an bout  before   sunset one  evening   when   w*  saw the first of their force debouch or  tbe plain and begin a close survey ol  our   situation.   ' We   were   ready   foi  .  tbem,   but   we   knew'  that   no   attacl  , would bo made before morning.   The?  would nave bad a lou������ march and bt  out so as to avoid missing a single shot  and at the'word of command fired, killing nearly every one of the 'Indians.  The others jumped up, only to be cut  down by the reserve'fire., The only two  unhurt were Wahneino and'his 4-year-,  old   papoose.     Grasping the'child,  he  sprang for,the mountain side, scaling  the rocks like a chamois amid a shower of bullets, soon distancing his pursuers and getting out of range of their  cities., Halting on a shelf of rock, he set  the child down and proceeded  to indulge in every exhibition of contempt  and derision that his imagination could  invent   to,..aggravate   the   discomfited  troopers,   wlio   gnashed   their .several  sets of teeth in rage at the insults oft>  the 'old heathen.    They were relieved  at  last by the arrivil of -Lieutenant  Huyl, who bore in his hand a new target rifle, received.only the day be*fore  the scouts.started/ ' ���������>',.'  This wonderful gun was guaranteed  to carry���������I forget���������1,100 yards with accuracy, and the' lieutenant, who was  one of the best fellows in the world in'  garrison, 'but quite cold'hearted and  bloodthirsty where 'Apaches'"' were conr  cerned, announced that while he was  doubtful of-his gun carrying near tlie  Indian,,yet he was going to try. The  Apache, feeling' secure against their  carbines, continued his taunts .until,  Huyl, taking deliberate aim, with  sights raised for 1,500 yards, fired. ��������� ,His  aim t was true and the gun all that it  was' boasted. The old savage plunged  face forward over the ledge and crash-.  ed down' the rocky mountain side at  the'very feet of his slayer.  ' The attention of the soldiers was  now directed to the papoose, the subject" of this sketch;    That interesting  The. A_.aches flatten the heads'- of  their babies between boards, and this,  as much as anything else, served to  render Dick unattractive to us children. Then he had such a predilection  for carrying snakes in his pocket; The  soldiers spoiled him, of course, and upheld him in every villainy he chose to  perpetrate. When he shot the mules in  an ambulance filled with women and  children, causing a runaway ,and a  smashv up' one soldier thrashed him  ',wrth' a barrel stave,and a dozen more  gave him 5 cent pieces to comfort him.  They alternately pounded and petted,  but it was all one to him. He seldom  laughed and never cried. He was an  Apache.  - I said ho never cried. I will note an  exception. Every Saturday afternoon  the men took him out behind the quarters and gave him a bath. This process  was very simple. They stripped off his  'clothing and turned the hose on him.  On these occasions the shrieks of the  little savage could be heard all over the  post.  I have not seen Dick since I was 9  years old, but' I like to think that he  grew up and regularly enlisted in the  old  regiment and is now an  honor to'  the service.���������New York Tribune.

Some  infant still calmly occupied the ledge I tjni,;   ngo  he  tried   a  case  of  Alabaster  and was evidently turning the situation, over in his mind. The troopers,  with Lieutenant Huyl at their,head,  slowly and painfully clambered up the  rocks and finally approached the or-  'phan, who, instead of squalling as a  civilized Christian- child would have  done, commenced throwing stones at  his pursuers,1 hitting Lieutenant. Huyl  .squarely on the nose with a half pound  trock and drawing blood copiously. He  followed this success by other good  throws, causing as nearly a panic as  possible. At last, byflanking him, our  Apache was knocked down by a blow  from a saber and stunned. His capture  was now easy, 'but theL lieutenant's  orders were tp return no prisoners.  "What shall we do with the little devil?" asked one of the men. "Shoot him  or throw him over the cliff after his father?" The "little devil" had regained  consciousness by this time and deliberately set his teeth into the calf of the  soldier's leg. Lieutenant Huyl wiped  his bloody nose and replied: "A baby  who fights this way ought not to be  killed in cold blood. By George, I'll  take him back' to San Carlos if it costs  me my commission!"  A gag was put into the young one's  mouth to prevent any more biting, and,  with a soldier holding each hand, he  was landed on the plain below. There  he was placed on horseback, a lariat  tied to one foot, passed under the horse  and tied to the other, and thus the  troopers returned to the reservation.  Lieutenant Huyl was a great favorite  with General Crook, but he had disobeyed orders and confidently expected  to be'put under arrest. But the general  had already heard something of the  stone throwing affair and had enjoyed  a hearty laugh over Huyl's broken  nose. When the lieutenant in making  his report reached the point where  Walinemo was killed, the general in-;  terrupted him with, "By the way, I  think you had better, not let me know  officially any more of this scout than  you have already told." Then glancing  at the swollen nose he burst into a roar  of laughter, in Which all the other officers joined.  The young Indian was confined in  the armory until his first fright was  overcome. The soldiers of Company A  named him Dick Huyl and, fitting him  out with a uniform fashioned from the  lieutenant's old clothes, regularly  adopted him into the service.  In less than a month the small recruit learned to express himself tolerably in English and in a very short time  had accumulated all the accomplishments of tobacco chewing and profanity possessed by'the soldiers. He also  picked up a wonderful knowledge of  bugle calls and evolutions, always turning out at roll calls and taking his  place at the extreme left of the company when in line.  When I first knew him, he had been  under tbe refining influences of the  United States service two years. If  that Indian had improved in that time,  I am very glad 1 did not know him before.

Tlie Towing of Monster Timber Rafts  Down the Coast From Seattle���������A  Great ' Business���������Inventor of tlie  Method. Had Many, Troubles.  This is the time of year when the log  rafters of the-Pacific coast, especially at  Seattle, are very busy men., "Log rafting  on 'the high seas is one of the great industries of the coast, and, although the  birthplace of the business was on the Atlantic side of the continent, it has reached its- highest '.development in the west,,  where hundreds of thousands'of feet of  timber are rafted annually.  The rafts aro simply mammoth bundles of piles chained together and , towed to their place of destination. The'inventor and patentee of tho methods now  in vo'gue is Captain H. It. Robertson,  ���������and,no history of the industry is complete without mention of him.  Tho first raft' ever constructed under  the Robertson'methods was built at Port  Joggins, N. S.; in 18S0. An unsuccessful attempt"to,launch it was made that  year, tho ways breaking under the enormous weight of the raft. In 1S87 it was  launched all right and taken to sea. The  hawser connecting it with its tug snapped near Boston, and, for, months the  raft, 400 feet long, drifted around the  sea, a menace to navigation, until it  finally went to' pieces on the Azores islands.'       -  n .  While - Robertson , was the inventor of  the method under1-'which this great raft  was built, credit onust be given to James '  D.( Leary of "New York, for he it was  who came to the'inventor's aid when his  financial resources were at an end; and,  ��������� lie has been-vto Atlantic rafting what  Robertson has been to the, industry ,on  the Pacific.     ,.   .  Immediately upon the loss of the raft  of lSST.-Mr. .Leary. announced ��������� his ��������� un-  ' shaken confidence in the feasibility of the  enterprise and declared his determination  to launch another raft. He 'and Robertson were out about $50,000 on their"first  venture, and it was considered foolhardy j  to again risk such a sum. They went  ahead, however, contracted for the logs  ;to be delivered -.at Port Joggins in the  winter of, 18SS, and this raft was successfully built, .floated and-, towed to New  York; where its arrival created a sensation. .i_.      ' .  The'pile, rafts now built on the Pacific  coast are constructed ��������� with the greatest  care. The piles'are'placed in a huge cradle in the forni of a gigantic vessel's hull.  This cradle costs SS.OOO.^When the load  is complete, one and a half.inch chains  are passed around the body of the raft  .every 12 feet of length.' Running fore  and aft through the center are two two  inch, chains, one holding the bulkheads  at-each end in place and the, other fastening to the hawser. "c ,  .From this tow'chain are lateral chains  running out from the center to connect  with the encircling chains.   This makes a  KAFT BEING TOWED OUT TO SEA.  ���������teady strain in towing, and the heavier  the pull the tighter are the piles held in  place.  In all there are 41 encircling chains,  each 1H0 feet long, two fore and aft  chains of G00 feet each, 1,000 feet of lateral "chain's, 75 fathoms of 1% inch tow  chain and 150 fathoms of 14 inch manila  hawser. ^ '  San Francisco takes the great part of  the piles rafted on the coast, and since  Captain Robertson took to the coast his  rafting appliances there has been a great  reduction in the* price of piling to consumers, which is of direct personal interest to every wharf owner and renter in  San Francisco or any port where piles  have to be brought from a distance. Prior  to the rafting era the sticks sold for 16  to 20 cents a lineal foot, and even then  it was difficult to get all the piles that  were needed, but' now there are plenty of  them to be had for 10 to 12 cents a foot.  As the consumption of San Francisco  alone is 30,000 piles a year, the annual  saving is not far from ������150,000, estimating the length of piles to be 70 feet each.  Attempts have repeatedly been made  to secure legislation at Washington prohibiting rafting on the high seas as a  menace to navigation. A bill to this effect was introduced at the first session  of the Fiftieth congress, 1888, by Representative Dingley and has been repeated frequently of late years. The  Dingley bill was read twice, referred to  the committee on merchant marine and  fisheries and ordered to be printed, and  then the committee went to the United  States attorney general for his official  opinion as to the legality of the proposed  legislation.  The attorney general spent some timu  havestigating the matter and then stat  ed that a raft had as much right on the  high seas as a barge or sailing vessel or  steamship- and that congress had ,no  power to enforce contrary rulings.  Apparently the chief agitators, against  rafting are members of the firemen's,  sailors' and engineers' unions, who see  in-it a menace to their employment. As  each raft consists of timber enough, to'  .load from five to ten vessels the seamen believe that the' manufacture of  many of them would result in thatnuin-'  ber of craft being withdrawn' from tho  trade, which would force them to seek  other work. Farmers and loggers - are  in favor of- pile rafting, because it clean*  the land and prevents the waste of enoiv-  tnous quantities of timber. ��������� *  -   - ���������    ���������_  x-���������-  :���������'���������-      \ ------  "'THE  OLD  SCKOOLHOUSE.

Tlie  Cause' .of  Geysers, t '  Bunscn has explained the periodical,  'eruption of geysers in such a satisfactory  manner, that "doubt ��������� is- *aorlonger*  possible. A' cavern filled with water lies1-  deep iii the earth, under the geyser,1 and  the Ayater, in .this cavern is heated 'by  the earth's internal heat'far above'212  degrees, since.there is-a heavy-"hydrostatic pressure upon it arising'from the.  weight of water in the passage or liat-.  ural standpipe that leads from the,subterranean  chamber to tbe surface of  the earth.-  /' After a time the temperature of the  water below rises, so that steam is giv-  Len off in spite of the pressure, and tho  .column in the,-exit tube  is gradually  forced upward.  Tbcj-elease of pressure  and the disturbance, of the water then  cause the contents of tbe subterranean  chamber to flash into steam and expel'  the contents of the exit pipe, violently.  These eruptions-may also be.pi'ovoked  , by throwing stones or clods of-turf into  the basin of'the geyser.

If a  powder would .not bring the desired relief, various juices of roots and herbs  wore mingled in a potion and sold as  the love phial. Here is an old recipe:  "Mistletoe berries (not exceeding nine.  in number) are -steeped in an equal  mixtures of wine, 'bee, vinegar and  honey.   <  * "This taken en an empty stomach before going to bed will cause dreams of  your future destiny (provided you retire before 12 o'clock) either on Christmas eve or on tbe first and third of a  new moon." Perhaps as a lingering  remnant of this absurdity there is a  current notion in some > parts of the  world today that a whole mince pie  eaten at-midnight will cause the reappearance of long departed friends, not  to mention the family physician and  the more interested members of the  household.       . '  A Memorable Ride.  The most memorable ride in English  history was that of Sir Arthur Owen,'  which placed the Hanoverian dynasty  on the'throne of Great Britain. The  act of settlement by which in 1701  parliament elected tho bouse of Hanover to the British throne was passed  by only one vote, and this casting vote  was given by Sir Arthur Owen, the  member of parliament for Pembrokeshire, lie arrived at Westminster*,  dusty and travel worn, only just in  time to record his vote, haying ridden  with furious haste from Wales for the  purpose on relays of borsc3 kept at all  the posting houses along the route.. To  that ride Britain owes its Georgian  era: hence its Queen Victoria and her  descendants.  "Tomato."  What is tbe earliest instance of tho  occurrence of the word tomato in any  European language? The first I have  in my notebook , is the reference to  "Americanorum tumatle," made by  Guillaudinus in his "De Papyro," a  commentary on parts of Pliny, 1572,  page 90. Later (page 91) he says, "De-  nique tumatle ex Themistitan, recen-  tioros fere pomum aureum, et poinum  amoris nuncupaiit," showing that both  the Aztec name tomatl and the popular  "lov^ apple" were already in use.

He   J)ad   been    quoted   in   several  newspapers assaying that the Canadian   Northern  deal was  another  " bisr steal."    Mr Curtis said it was  .not the Canadian Northern bill hut  the "Coast Kootenay Railway Bill"  which he said had the word "steal"  writ ten all over' it.     The late Chief  Commissioner, Mr"Wells,' had been  laigely interested in the Canadian,  "Northern  and   his lemariis,, might  be taken as'seriously reflecting upon  .that gentleman.     fie   (Mr Curtis)  was satisfied*that in the "Columbia  and Western matter" tlie late Chief  Conimi.-sioner,   Air 'Wells, .had  not  been   actuated   by   anj'  desire   for  personal   piofit. ,    He   might have  erred in judgment and done things  'that  weie   improper   for   political  purposes���������but nothing worse."
