Much dissapoinlment' was ex-  pressed yestevday afternoon when a  rumor was started that the   wrest-  a  ling ma:oh was off. This was not  the case, it subsequently' proved to  he, but Johnston had declined lo  put up the remaining $75.oo, urging as a reason that he had been  injured in training and was under  the doctor's carp, and for the same  reasons claiming immunity under the articles from forfeit. He  would however wrestle Gray for the  gale receipts and after further negotiations this was agreed to.  At 8 30 A. McKenzie and Joe  Stant led off in a preliminary two  out of three, won by McKenzie, and  at about 9 30 the two local champions locked grips. It was evident  that Johnston tva? not in condition  whether from overtraining or ill  health was hard to determine and  it seemed to many, that he i-hould  not have gone on the mat at all.

BY LAURA JEAN LIBBEY  Author of "Miss Middletoo's Law/1 "A Forfeicfcka Marriage," "'Daisy Brooks," Etc^ Etc  " "I inclose 'this confession ln the  pocket of my dress which I will dispose of to a dealer in misfit garments, where it will be found some  day and the cruel mystery of the  child's disappearance will be solved.  "I inclose tho money as a reward  to the finder of these papers, if ho  or she will see them delivered safely  Into the hands of Ollie's father, Gilbert Camoron, Cameron Hall, in the  suburbs of Baltimore.  "I inclose tho child's portrait, records, dates, and all the papers  necessary to prove beyond a doubt  the truth of the abovo.  Margaret Blake."  With a startled face Helena Heath-  cliu" stared at the parchment holding  so terrible a secret that had fallen  into her hands in such a miraculous  manner.  She examined the papers and dates  carefully. "Poor little Ollie Cameron," sho mused, "if you wero living now you would bo about my own  age, and an heiress���������what a pity it  is that you died. Wealth would  have fallen to your lot while I havo  nothing but poverty."  Suddenly, as she sat there, the  greatest temptation of her young  life came to her; a temptation that  made her faint and giddy and almost  cry out with horror, for it led to a  Eini  She lifted her white face to the  green trees above her, and a voice  seemed to murmur through the waving branches to Helena's startled  throbbing heart: "Ah! if you could  but tako this dead girl's place! Why  couldn't you? The little slip of paper you hold in your hand is the  only existing proof of Ollie Cameroon's deat"nT~destroy lT_ana"claiih~lI5r~  wealth. Take what the gods offer  you. You are so poor, you need  wealth so much, poverty is so bitter."  Helena Heathcliff gazed at the pictured face with bated breath and  parted lips.  Tho dark eyes looking up intra her  own almost seemed to say: "Poverty  is so bitter; you may take my place  ff you will.'1  It was a ���������'   dazzling temptation  to  the    poor,     desolate   sewing-girl ���������  wealth or poverty for evermore.  "Work���������work���������work!  My labor never flags;  And what are its wages? A bed of  straw���������r  A crust of bread���������and rags."  "Oh, I couldn't do it," sobbed  Holona, as sho covered her whlto  faco with her hands; "this girl's  spirit would como back from tho  river to haunt inc. Sho would stand  at my bedside in tho dead of night  and whisper through tho darkness ;  'You aro not Ollio Cameron. You  are a misorabnle imposyer who haa  ore a miser ablo Impostor who haa  stolen Into my place. An usurper of  my rights.

"I won't  think of such a possibility," she told  herself, "I shall go joyously on to  tho fate the gods have mapped out  for me. I am so young, why shouldn't I taste the sweets of lifo that aro  held to my lips, enjoy poor Ollie  Cameron's wealth, and be happy?  Good-bye, old life," she cried, recklessly, smiling through her tears like  April sunshine. "Good-bye, workrooms and poverty, you have looked  your last upon Helena Haatbcliff���������I  hope I may never rue it."  CHAPTEK IV.  Helena Heathcliff looked .fate firmly in the face. Tho struggle was  over ��������� the great temptation had  conquered her.  "lt will be no sin," she murmured,  lifting her loving face up *o thi sun-  lifting her lovely face up to the sunlight, "for Helena, the poor sewing-  girl, to grasp the dazzling wealth  which fate itself must have sent to  mo. Poor Mark!" she sighed, pressing her hands over her throbbing  heart.  It was the first thought she had  given to her handsome young lover  whose kisses were still warm upon  her lips. And with the tnought  came the terrible realization that if  she clung to Mark and his lo\e, she  .must give up that brilliant, rosy_  dream of wealth for evermore.  She did not consider that a man's  heart hung in the balance; a man's  loving heart whose every throb was  fer hor.  How Mark lov&l her, ho^v he worshiped her, how willing he would  have been to give his life for her.  Ah, if he had but loved her less; for  it was not lovo that Helena had  given him in return���������it was only  pity.  "It is better that wo should part,  Mark," she sobbed, "I was never intended for you." Yet sho could not  think of leaving him so cruelly, without a pang of remorse for the pain  ho would suffer.  And, standing there in tho groen  park, his lust words came bark to  hor liko a voico of doom that might  havo warned her: "Never be false to  mo, Helena, for if you woro I should  go mad and .kill myself���������perhaps  both of us."  "Wo must part, Mark, dear," she  murmured, with a tearless sob. Tho  crimson roses that nodded their perfumed heads near hor and tho green  restless branches abovo her seemed to  plead for him. But, stiflling her  conscience and its accusing cry, Helena turnod resolutely away, and tho  dlo was irrevocably cast. An hour  later a square packet containing a  pitiful llttlo note, a sum of monoy,  and tho ruined pink silk dress, was  loft at Miss Kirkwood's door, and at  about that tlmo u tear-stained noto  addrcSHod to Murk Forrester waa loft  with his sister Prudence.  For a moment Prudonco stared curiously at tho littlo square whlto envelope, then, without tho .Vast compunction, broko tho seal and read tho  pathetic, tear-stained letter grimly  through from beginning to end; road  it over twice, thon placed it carefully in Its envelope again and laid  It in Murk's desk.  "Lovo is tho greatest curse of life,"  Bim thought. "Poor Mark! how I  pity him. Vet it Is a thousand  times hotter ho. Mark will loam to  forgot Helena HeathclllT's pretty, alluring face, and marry an h������lrosH,  and my hopes will be realized at  bint.

We call her girl by courtesy, for at  eighteen ono can scarcely be deemed  womanly, and yet, as you glanced  at the fair face Trained in waving  blonde hair, it was hard to believe  that Vivian Cameron was the young  brido of Gilbert Cameron, tho old  millionaire who stood near her. "Vet  such was Uio case.  "I am going down to the post-  oflice, my love," he said, leaning  fondly over tho chair his young wife  sat. "Would you liko anything from  town,  Vivian?"  Vivian Cameron smiled, and the  smilo deepened almost into a sneer  upon her red lips. "Nothing, unless  lt is a now set of diamonds,'**' sho  answered, carelessly. "The set I  was examining at Burke's the other  day wero fine whito stones. You  may order them if you like. That's  all I can think of, I am so well supplied, thanks to you, Gilbert," sho  added.  The old millionaire's face flushed  hotly under the fire of his young  wife's bright eyes. "You shall have  them, my love," he said, tenderly.  "You shall have every wish of your  heart gratified, my beautiful Vivian,  and all that I ask in return is your  love, dear," he added.  And, as if he could not trust himself to speak further, he stooped  down suddenly, kissed her, and hurriedly quitted the room.  Tho door had scarcely closed behind him oro the silken curtains of  an alcove opened, and a tall, dark  woman glided into tho apartment.  "Fortunate Vivian," she cried, ex-  ultingly, "how liberally the gods are  providing for you. It was a lucky  hour for you when you married Gilbert Cameron."  A low, bitter laugh broke from  Vivian's compressed lips. "I was  mad to listen . to you, Hortense,  when you told mo wealth would satisfy all tlie cravings of a hungry  heart," sho exclaimed, starting from  her seat and pacing restlessly up and  down the room; "but it does not do  it," she cried. "It will not buy  love."  "My "dear niece," replied Hortense  Montgomery, composedly, "you seem  to have all the lovo you crave. You  are 'an old man's darling,' and he  fairly adores you." o.  ������������������I���������would-rather-s-a-thousand-times.  be a young     man's slave,  and give  love     for love,"  cried Vivian, dashing aside the lace curtains and glancing  impatiently  out upon tlio lawn.  "You have brilliant prospects,  Vivian," exclaimed Hortense, following her niece to tho window and laying her hand on her white arm.  "Every marriageable girl in-Baltimore was dying with envy when you  married Mr. Cameron."  Vivian's faco paled strangely. "If  I had not married him his money  would have gone to his nephew,  Frederick Castleton," sho mused,  tapping her foot restlessly on tho  violet carpet.  "Frederick Castleton would have  been his holr, ns next of kin," admitted Hortense, "for of course tho  girl Ollio, who was abducted nearly seventeen yoars ago, must be dead,  nr sho would have been heard from  long sineo."  "How Frederick Castloton must  hato mo, Hortense," she exclaimed,  gazing out at a tall, broad-shouldered young man who was loaning with  a careless grace against an old booch  troo. "Soo! he has just noticed mo  at tho window, and turns away,"  And at that moment her husband  Joined him.  Vivian watched them with hor  wholo soul in her palo bluo oyos.  "What a contrast," sho sighed,  drearily. "How desolate lifo Is  when a younw girl soils her llfo for  gold!"  "Don't fly in the faco of fate," replied ITorteiiso, slowly. "To-morrow your husband changes tho will  ho mado soventcon long yoars ago,  and ho has promised to loavo everything to you, Ah, Vivian, you who  know onco what tha direst povorty  moans, should know how to prize  that.

A carriage dashing up the avenue,  breaks in upon her day dream, and  Vivian's brows meet in a dark  frown.  fcihe taps the silver hand bell on  the table near her impatiently, and  in an instant a servant opens the  door of the drawing-room, bowing  profoundly.  "Katy," sho says, "I am not a.t  home to any one who calls to-day,  remember,  except Mr. Castleton."  "Mr. Castleton has been here talking to Mr. Cameron, ma'am," replied Katy, "but ho left just now,  I saw him going down the corridor."  Vivian Cameron bit her crimson  lips angrily.

Half an hour passed by, yet the  carriage that had dashed up the  avenue so hurriedly had not taken  its departure.  There was,, a commotion down  stairs, yet Vivian Cameron, bending  over her novel, did not trouble her  pretty head to find out what was  the matter.  Suddenly there was a hurried  knouk. Katy put her head in at the  door in a pale, breathless sort of a  way.  "If you please, ma'am," she began, incoherently, "master says ha  must see you for a few.���������"  "Didn't I tell'you I would see no  one;" cried Vivian, stamping her  dainty slippered foot upon the velvet  carpet in intense wrath.  "But it something so very important, ma'am," urged Katy, earnestly.  "And I tell you again that I do  not care what he wants. I will not  see him. Say that I have a headache, and do not wish to be disturbed. Do not dare to knock at  this door again to-day."  In a moment later, another step  came hurriedly down the corridor-���������  a step that made Vivian's heart  throb, and her cheeks flush���������for she  knew before he knocked that it was  Frederick Castleton at the- library  _door. _____  "I thought he had gone," she mmC  mured, tossing aside her book as  sho sprung to her. feet, glancing  breathlessly into tho mirror.  Thon she sprung to tho door, and  flung it open with a pretty cry of  surprise,  Frederick Castleton stood in the  doorway with a look on his handsome flushed face she had never seen  there before.  It was evident that something vory  unusual had happened, and he stood  thero to break the news to her.  "Oh, Frederick���������Mr. Castleton!"  sho cried, wringing her littlo whito  jeweled hands imploringly. "What  can bc'tlio matter?"  Her heart gavo a great throb and  sho criod with a ^breathless sob:  "Hns anything happened to my,:���������  my���������husband?"  "Yes���������-end���������no," Replied Frederick Castloton, with a curious twinkle  in his dark-blue eyos. "You must  prepare yourself for a groat shock,  Mrs Camoron," he said, quickly,  "for tho news I have brought 'will  bo a very groat 'shock to you."  "Do not keep mo in suspense, Frod-  orlek!"

"You are mad, Fredorick 1" sho crlod, In an awful hollow  voice, all tho wlld-roso color fading  from hor faco, and leaving it as  ghastly as marble. "What is It you  are telling mo, Froderick?"

"Ah, no! it can not be true, Frederick," sho gasped; "there must be  some mistake���������some fearful mistake!"  "It is the most romantic history  that ever came to light," cried Frederick Castleton. "Listen attentively, Mrs. Cameron," he said, "and I  will give you the story as related by  Ollie herself in a vory few words:  "As far back as Ollie can remember, sho lived in poverty with an old  light-housekeeper and his duughtoi,  op ������n <slniid o������> the poi?"*���������"  "I wish to Heaven sho had died  there!" was Vivian's mental comment; but sho spoko no word, and  Frederick continued:  "Ollio had been taught to believe  herself the old man's child, and that  his daughter Agnes was her sister.  One stormy night, tho old light-  housekeeper was found dead in the  tower, where death had overtaken  him whilo trimming tho lamps. The  two girls went to New York City to  find work, but the light-housekeeper's  daughter did not survive him long.  Two days ago she died, leaving Ollie,  whom they had always called Helena, alono and uncared for.  "Tho next day, in the pocket of an  old silk dress, that had lain packed  o,way for years, Ollie, or Helena,  rather, found the package of papers  and records that was such a startling revelation to her. Sho came on  to Baltimore immediately, and, taking a carriage, drove out here at  once, and here she is. The proofs  havo been examined, and they are  perfectly correct; she is beyond a  doubt the long-lost daughtor of Gilbert Cameron and the heiress of Cameron Hall. Wonderful, is it not?"  concluded  Frederick Castleton.  A sneering laugh broke from Vivian's lips.  "And this ignorant creature from  tho slums of Now York is coming  here to livo," she cried, desperately.  "Oh! I wish to Heaven I had never  married Gilbert Cameron!" she  thought, with bitter vehemence, adding, aloud: "How horribly ill-bred  sho must be!"  An amused smile broke the gravity  of PYederick Castleton's handsome  face.  "You will be most agreeably sur-.  prised     when   you see her," he said.  ���������"No    young lady brought up in   the.  very    lap _lof__bjgury could be more  refined or dainty."~~~~    ~ "~ ~~  "And she learned all this in a New  York tenement house?" replied Vivian Cameron,  sarcastically.

Silks and jewels are  by no moans the true indications of  a lady.. Shall I tell your husband  you will join us in tho parlor?" he  asked,  turning away abruptly.  "If you will bo so kind," returned  Vivian, sweetly.  Sho closed tho door after him, and  locked itf  It was a whlto, ghastly face that  gazed into tho mirror, then turned  away with tho shrillest laugh , that  ever echoed from human lips.  "Aftor all thoso years," sho stormed, "this girl Ollio has como back to  outwit mo!

The Russsian had a well  in his front yard, which he concluded  to fill up. He began by diggging a  hole by the side of the well, throwing  the dirt from the n^vv excavation into the well. "In the course of time,"  says Mr. Holmes, "the old well was  filled, but there was a hole alongside  as big as the first. The Russian went  farther away and dug another hole  to fill the second.

"The British system," sayB the champion tramp, "is one of the boat in tho  world, and tha prison administration  is undoubtedly the best. The public  works system means hard and healthy  labor. The cell system exists, but mostly the men work together, in brick  yards, on forts, or other public works,  I had the honor (and Great Britain the  benefit) of serving two months at  Dover, helping build a line of forts to  protect England as a result of having  been accused of cadging. It was there  that I learned quarrying and stone cutting, which added one more trade to  the twenty-three that I have learned  In prisons. The men get credit for exactly what they do���������they are paid, really, in lessening of sentences, and I  earned thirty days off out of ninety  days sentence by working hard.  "Perhaps the worst and most wicked Jail system in the world���������taken as  a whole���������I found in Portugal. The  Portuguese system makes beggars of  all prisoners, besides hardening all  prisoners and manufacturing criminals  rapidly.  "Mexico has advanced wonderfully In  the last fifteen years. When I first visited Mexico I had the honor to be arrested in Mexico City and thrown into  a dirty, overcrowded, disease ridden  hole, where all prisoners, most of them  In irons, were kept. Three years ago I  .was-again-arrested-ln-Mexico-Gity-and-  was pleased to note a vast improvement. The cellular system had been  adopted and the trades are taught At  Jalisco, where I served fifty4wo days,  a beautiful and humanitarian prison  has been built."  Perhaps the strangest adventure of  Klshman's prison career took place ln  Spain. He was arrested, charged with  vagrancy, whllo stealing a ride out of  Madrid, trying to reach the Mediterranean coast At that time ho had  nearly $800 In gold and silver with him,  picked up in beating a race at Paris.  "Soon after I was thrown Into the  prison," he says, "the prisoners were  taiiklng of a probable change in tho  management of the prison, and X  learned that lt ls tho custom there to  permit the Jailer to bid, and the highest bidder Is awarded the office.  Thore was nine othtrs ln the room,  each being forced to pay about eighteen cents a day to the Jailer or starve.

Tysilio is the name of the  saint to whom the church of the ad-  Joining parish (Llandysiiio) is dedicated. The epithet "gogo" is obscure,  aud may mean, "of the cavo."

SICKLY CHILDREN  More children die during the hot  weather months than at any other  season of the year. Their vitality is  then at its lowest ebb, aud an attack  of diarrhoea, cholera infantum or  stomach trouble may prove fatal in  a few hours. For this reason no home  in which there are young children  should be without a box of Baby's  Own Tablets, which promptly cure all  stomach and bowel troubles. If the  Tablets are given to a well child  they will prevent these ailments and  keep the little one well and strong.  Mrs. Joseph T. Pigeon, Bryson, Que.,  says: "My little one was attacked  with oollc and diarrhoea, and I found  Baby's Own Tablets so satisfactory  that I would not now be without them  in tlie house." These Tablets not only  cure stomach troubles, but all the  minor ailments that afflict iufants and  young children, They contain no opiate or harmful drug, and may be given  with equal safety to the now born  baby or well grown child. Thoro are  imitations of this medicine and mothers should see that the words "Baby's  Own Tablots" and tho four-leaf clover with tbo child's head on each leaf  is found on tho wrapper around onch  box.

Row a Person Who Either Cannot or
WIU Not Pay What He Owes May
1   Be Thrust Into Jail Over and Over
',' Attain For ''Contempt of Court."
It Is commonly supposed that in
these days there is no imprisonment
for debt in England, but the supposition is wrong, both lu substance and
In fact.
True, the term "imprisonment for
debt" is done away with, perhaps because the debtor does not pay his debt
by going to prison, yet to prison he
goes for it all the same, although in
the eyes and in the phraseology of the
law he goes there for "contempt of
court," whereas in 00 per cent of such
cases the poor defaulter suffers his
6even, fourteen or twenty-eight days
"close confinement" solely because of
his inability to pay the monthly sum
ordered by the judge or the magistrate.
Nor, as already said, does the incarceration pay what is owing. For if the
creditor chooses to do so he can have
the debtor committed again immediately after one term has been served
end so on as long as the debtor lives,
because the judgment goes on forever
unless the amount of it be paid.
But a second commitment on the
same judgment is very rare.
At the jail in a certain eastern county, where the writer of this article

decidedly not as a nonlawbreaker
Bhould be received and treated.
The time of arrival was 2 p. m.
He had no dinner, so after his pockets had been emptied and the articles
tabulated he was given six ounces of
brown bread and four ounces of "Harriet Lane"���L e., tinned Australian
He was then put Into a "receiving
cell," eight feet by four feet six inches,
with a concrete floor six feet below the
level of the earth and decidedly damp,
as was proved by the wet salt kept
there for the prisoner's use.

His bed was a two Inch thick mattress of cocoanut fiber laid on three
boards supported on crosspieces about
three inches from tho floor.
Tho bedclothes wero ample, but the
pillow and bed boards were of a decidedly hard naturo.
At a quarter to 8 a loud bell rang
to go to bed, and at 8 o'clock the gas
(in a small hole In tho wall and shut
out of the coll by a ploco of thick corrugated glass) was turned out. All
debtors got this treatment.

An    Interesting    Description   of   Bird
Common in Canada Decades Ago.
I have been thinking for some time
of sending you a description of the
passenger pigeon. No doubt, many of
your readers havo never seen this bird,
and have no idea of the countless numbers seen by the early settlers. I write
this sketch to recall to the memory
of some of our early settlers, and also
to give to our young natural history
students agt Idea of a bird so very
numerous forty years ago, and which
ls destined ere long to become totally
The passenger pigeon ls a handsome
bird, belonging to the same family as
the dove, and ha/, been noted for Its
vast migrations ln North America. The
mala bird ls much brighter Dlumaged
tnan tne female, and noticeaDiy larger. The breast and extending to the
middle Is of a distinctly light brick red;
the back variegated slate and bluish.
The head and part of the neck are
beautifully iridescent; the beak soft
and slightly curved; the eyes mild and
bright, with red Iris, and having a fold
of skin which the bird can put over
the eye like a winker, whereby the
danger of Injiiry ls much lessened ln
its flight through the thick woods. Its
length ls about seventeen Inches, and
the wing about eight and a half inches,
and lt Is capable of flying rapidly
through a thick forest, turning and
dodging past obstructions with great
ease, and able to take very long flights,
sustaining them for nearly a day at
more than locomotive speed, or about
sixty miles an hour. It lives entirely
on vegetable matter, such as fruits,
gTain, nuts, seeds, bulbs and plants. 1
have taken from the crop of one more
than a good handful of beechnuts,
which would be packed so1 tightly that
lt must have seriously Incommoded Its
flight. When nuts and grain are scarce
they will eat nearly anything in the
vegetable line, such as buds, tender
shoots, grasses and some kinds of fungi. Although I have taken all I have
named and more from their crops, I
_&_Q._ riot recollect seeing any animal remains, such as "worms ~or���InsS5tS~of"
which most birds are so fond. Mild
and peaceable ln a marked degree, It
seldom���I might safely say never���
shows any sign of fight onless in defence of Its young, and Is an easy prey
to all carnlvbra.
The passenger pigeon ls gregarious
ln Its habits, living in enormous communities, whose numbers would baffle
the wildest calculation, and to tell only
tho bare truth it ls likely the writer
will be charged by your readers with
extravagant exaggeration.
In their migratory flights, as I have
soen them here, they were usually flying northward In spring, or in the
breeding season, going and returning
their feeding grounds. Theso migrations
often extended over some weeks, and
In such numbers at times that, speaking loosely, as peoplo often do, the sky
was literally covered,
To see them when most numerous,
as they flew angling across Lake
Huron, the shadows of the great flocks
wore distinctly reflected on tho clear
waters, like passing clouds, and to say
that one-third of the visible expanse
was covered with pigeons would not
be disputed by an onlooker. Could ws
not bo mistaken? I answer no, Whero
they camo from or whore they woro
going none of us could tell, but thero
woro tho great flocks, ono after anothor, each one comprising up to many
thousands. For hours they would be
no apparent abatement, and when
evening camo they would alight on tho
trees, and then go to the ground to
mako a meal of what suited their
tastes, and wero r<sady to start noxt
morning, shortly after good daylight,
on thoir northward Journey. Bluo
hawks often flow with thom, and would
pick a, plgoon from amongst them, and

Battle of the Thames.
The battle of the Thames was fought
In October, 1813.   Flfty-nlna years ago
there stood on the roadside   on    the
Longswoods road a little   log   school-
house; a few rods away stood a wayside tavern called the Tecumseh house,
marked by a swinging sign with   the
rude painting of an Indian on it   Th*
spot is situated about two miles as the
crow files from Thamesvllle, that is. the
Thamesvllel of that day, which was a
hamlet on the Longswoods   road,   tbe
traveled route at that time from the
west to London, jdamllton, and other
places east   The Thamesylllo of to-day
Is on the Great Western Railway, now
the Grand Trunk which had not at that
time been buttt   or   apparently   been
thought ot The little schoolhouse stood
within a few feet of where Tecumseh
waa killed.   The writer in 1846 taught
Young Canada in that little schoolhouse."
Right there was the   Battle   of   the
Thames fought.   Gen. Proctor, with a
.fewjM^la^andji^body^f^Indians under Tecumseh had been fetrSatlrrg~be'
fore tha large forces of Americans under Gen. Harrison, uutll this spot was
reached, when Tecumseh,    it is Sftld,
positively refused to    retreat   further,
but resolved to mako a stand in defence
of the Indian settlement of Moravian-
town, about a mile further up the river.
Death of Tecumseh.
The spot was well chosen for   defence.  The surrounding   oountry   was
covered with primevlal forest trees, the
only approach to lt being   the   road.
Thero was a sandy ridge running westward and on the side next the road a
black ash swale.     Behind this ridge
Tecumseh and his men had erected a
rudo breast works of logs.  Proctor had
ono  field  piece   pointing   down   the
rood; but the story goes in the locality
that ho had retreated before the Amer-
loans had arrived, and not a shot was
fired.   As the Kentuckian a   advanced
along tho road thinking   tho   Indians
wero farther east and that thoy would
outflank them,   rushed   through   the
swale, but instoad came directly on Te-
cumsoh's position and thoro tho Indians
fought and many of thero woro killed,
among them their great chief, whoso
body ls Bald to hava boen mutilated by
thoso Kentucky riflemen. After Tecum-
sch's death and tho scattering of his
men ln tho woods, Gen. Harrison made
no serious attempt to ponotrate   much
farther Into the country, but soon retired again to Detroit.
8sw ths Great Chief,
The lato Mr, Cornwall who had a
small saw and grist mill at Thames-
villo whon tho writer was teaching in
tho neighborhood said ho was a small
boy at the tlmo of tho battle, and ths
evening boforo tho battle, as ho was
ln tho woods looking after tho cows,
ho came right on Tecumseh's camp.
Ths Indians had killed a cow and wero
cooking steaks for supper. He said
Tooumsoh was a line tall man, wearing
an oflloor's sash, and had around his
nook a ribbon ou which was suspended
a largo sllvar medal. Mr. Cornwall
said Tooumsoh could speak English
and spoke kindly to him, patting him
on the head. Many havo wondored that
while monumontti havo boen erected to
tbo memory of othors, porhaps loss do-
serving, this great Indian chtof has

tt 9erve��l Her AVell When the Stagecoach Holdup Came.
A good illustration of the quick wit
of a woman appears in the following
incident of the old coaching days of the
far west The man of the tale does not
show off in the b��st of lights and did
not deserve his reward. The coach
was on its way over a lonely road and
carried among its passengers a lady
going to join her husband and a man
traveling by himself.
"I have $1,000 in my pocketbook,"
confided the lone traveler to the lady,
"and I feel very uneasy. Would you
mind concealing lt in your '���������ess? lf
we are held up they aro less likely to
search you."
Tho lady consented and hid the roll
of bills. Toward evening the shout of
"Throw up your hands!" brought the
coach to a standstill, and four mon,
masked and on horseback, demanded
at the point of the pistol that all money
should be Immediately given up. The
lone traveler passed over all his remaining cash, Consisting of a few dollars, and was congratulating himself
on his escape when, to bis horror, he
heard the lady say:
"I have a thousand dollars hero, but
I suppose I must give lt up." And
without further hesitation she handed
over the .precious pile of greenbacks.
The robbers rode off in high good humor, but as soon bb they were gone the
traveler let loose his wrath. He abused
the lady ln no measured terms and
hardly stopped short of calling her a
coward. The accused said little, but
when'the end of the Journey was reached she invited the angry man to her
"I shall have to accept" ho said sulkily. "I haven't a cent In tthe world
through your stupidity."
As he was dressing for dinner that
night his host came to his room.
"Here ls the thousand dollars," he
row. You see, she had $20,000 hid In
her gown, and she thought if she gave
up your thousand it ���would save further
search. Thank you for the loan, which
saved me a heavy loss."
Tire Ea��e With Which One WIU Carry
Off a Dead Pig.
Amoy is'an island city on the China,
coast near Formosa. There are mountains" west of Amoy, and, according to
a correspondent, there are tigers ia
them. "These tigers lead an easy and
independent life in the caves and dens
which abound. They come out of these
every evening just as the shadows
creep over the land aud the blue mists
rise from the lower ground and hide tho
hills. Then the inhabitants get within,
their houses and keep the door between,
them and these savage brutes. Many.
a poor woman coming witb water from
the well or a farmer delayed too long
In the fields has fallen victim to them.
The n'ghts are spent by the tigers In
foraging, and the foxes aud wildcats
that roam the hills and the dogs \yx the
village become their prey.
"There Is nothing, however, that
gives the tigers such supreme delight
as tho capture of a good sized pig.
They are truly Chinese in their tastea
ln this respect. One of these-animals
will go at a steady trot with a dead pig
thrown over its back up the sides of
steep hills, jumping over huge bowlders and taking cross cuts over the
most Inaccessible ground. The physical strength of a tiger is something
enormous, and Its capacity for devouiv
ing large quantities of food is scarcely,
less amazing."

From noon till 1:30 p. m. is the calling hour, and, though Calcutta even in
winter is a bot place, no man who Is
not an outer barbarian will walk Into
a drawing room without a tall silk hat
in his hand. Should he drive round in et
dog cart to pay his calls, the man
wears a helmet or a "sola tope," whilo
he drives, pulls up at a house door,
asks whether "tbe gate Is shut," and,
if told that it is not, nuts on a silk hat,
which the syce produces from a hatbox carried under the seat, and goes' in
to pay his call. Another Instance of tho
British worship of the tall hat, wbich
the natives consider an Interesting
form of piety, is to be seen at the Calcutta races on the day of the Viceroy's

The great breach In the friendship
between Edwin Booth and Lawrence
Barrett occurred when Barrett was
playing "Tbo Man o' Alrleo" in
Booth's theater In New York city. Tho
piece did not draw, and Booth decldooV-
to have It discontinued. So (as be afterward told of the incident) ho broached tlie subject to Barrett, who lmra&��
dlately grew angry. "Do you mean to1
say that I can't play It?" he demanded
hotly. Booth assured him in a conciliatory way tbat he guvo tbo first part-'
fairly, but not tho last. In n greater
passion than ever, Barrett repeated,
"Do you moan to say that I can't play
It?" Booth, still trying to not offend
hlro, Baid, "I don't think you have quite
worked into tho last act." Thon Bai*
