With thi?, ho walked ftom tho dnor
of tho half-board, half-dugnut shanty,
wliero the two had been standing, and
approaclied a nmall barb-wire corral

sepnrated him from tho distant sbanty

A fow moment' rido brought him
to tho iront of a little dug out shanty
that nestled in the side of a littlo hill
at tho edge of a Mnall ravine. Just
around tho slight elevation in tho
prairio stood a covered wagon, or
"prairie-schooner,'' as thoy arc fami
liarly termed in tho West.
A pair of torrel mules, tied to tho
rear end ot tho wagon, wero busily on
gaged in eating their evening meal of
corn and dry grass out of tho wagon

with a frying pan in his hand, and
held it over a tiro in front of tbe

Tho wtrangcr turned and looked at
tho visitor a moment, aud then said,
quietly: "Fryin' meat."
"Joe's anger rose. "Oh, yo air, air
yet'' Wal, as yo seem tcr bo so smart,
mcbhy yo ken tell mo whoso claim yo

"I reckon I ken; h'it's mir.o."
"ThM's thr- way h'it looks tcr mo."
"Look hyar, strangeil" said Joo
Scaggs, clinching his fist, "mo an' my

over his shoulder in llio direction of
his own fhanty, "air holdin' this yore

hyar in the spring from Injiany, an'
we'll jist giye yo tell ter morrcr ter git

' 'Tain't long enough time,'' said tho
stranger, deliberately turning ovor a
liberal slice of "muddling'' that smok
ed in tho fiying pan.
"How long do yo want?'" questioned
Joe, his wrath somewhat mollified by
the stranger's evident intention of leav
ing. "How long does a man have ter live
on a claim boforo ho ken get a deed
for h'itr was the reply of tho Grang

"Wal, then,'' continued the strang

"You impudent skunk!" roared Joe,
now thoroughly arousfd by tho
stranger's cool manner, "for a cent I'd
wallup tho ground with yeroneiy car
case." "Ya, ye might undertake h'it for a
cent, but ye'd never lay up any money
at h'il,'' was tho answer, as ho set the
frying-pan down and confronted Joo
Joe now moycd Ins hand towards
his pistol, but hesitated.
"Look hyar," said tho stranger.
"You order me ter leao ibis claim. Is

but yo can't hold h'it fer somebody

"Yes, yo may know the law, but yo
don't know our law. We've nndo a

Ho not before.
Angry words lose to Joes lips, but
ho hesitated Tho cool, indifferent

Ho was about lo speak, when the
tramp of a horse's feet soundod in the
gia-s liehiriii linn, ami Kill liarnum
rode up, a Winthrstcr ritlo swuDg
across his saddle.
'Thought mebbe yo'd havo trouble,''
ho explained, "an' that I'd como over

'Bill,'' said Joe, gaining courage ot
tho arrival of reinforcements, "ho says
ho h am t a.goin tcr leave. '
"Won't hot'' Bill answered, bring
ing his Winchester down on tin
stranger. "Now, yo lo.vl up yer traps
"All right," ho answered, doggedly.
"Yon'vo got ther advantage o' me,
I'll go, lint I'll git even with yo Bome

tumbling his t-lfects together.
Bill and Joe watiihed him whilo he
piled his traps into tho wagon.
"Stranger," said Bill, "wo don't

iniiid payiu' yo fer yer liitlo shanty,
scein as yo can't tako h'il along.'1
"No, h'it ain't worth noihinv' was
the answer, "l nou t mma givln a

"Wal, Bill," said Joe, "h'it's gittin'

bank of tawny, purplo clouds, an ashy
pallor overspread the sky.
''Goin1 tcr have bad weather," ob
served Joo Scaggs, as thoy ' rode
through tho fast gathering darkness.
Lalo that night Bill punched Joo
in tho ribi with his elbow, and said:

Bill got up and struck

Tho weather had, suddenly giown
intensely cold, and the wind was roar

through tho dead grass with a sharp

A great gust of wiud swept into
tho room, whirling a cloud of snow
flakes with it and extinguished the

Joe had also got up nnd was put
ting on his clothes.
"Wo mut seo ter tho hosses," he
.aid, drawing on his heavy boots.
"They'll freezo ter death in that shed

Ho opened tho door and went out,
and in a few moments returned.

"Oho uv us must go after 'em," ex

"Yi s, an' you'd die a dozen limes
'foro ye'd find 'em in this storm."
"IVini- aniniilsl" exclaimed Bill, "but
h".t can't be helped."
Bill kindled a firo in the littlo sheet
iron stovo in tiio corner.
Tho air was growing coldor aud
colder every mnnvnt, and tho ciro'o of
heat around the stove grew smallor
and smaller with each surgo of tho

Tho storm showed no sigus of abat

"Joe," said Bill, breaking tho sil
ence, "nobohy can't come from Atticy
ter-day; and tho pervisions! thar's
nothin' in tho house ter eat."
Joo got up and looked out at tho
"H'it's as yer say, Bill; thar C3n't
nobody como from Atticy ter-day "
Aud then, huskily: "H'it may ba a
work 'for' thoy can."
Tho two men looked nt each .other,
and each read tho other's thoughts.
"Thar can't nobody gitnowhar now,
and mobby not for a week. Bill, we
air in a bad fix."
Bill mado no reply, but filled a large
black pipe, lii it, sat down by tho fire
and bJgan pulling away in silence.

The day pissed and night camo
down, and still tho storm raged aud

It was at tho close of tho fifth day,
aud neither Bill nor Joo had tasted

Inaugural Travel on the
When in 1885 the Pennsylvania
Railioad Company successfully carried
into and returned from Washington
tho vast host of inaugural pilgrims, it
was considered that tho perfection of
railroad management, in promptly and
effectively moving enormous numbers
of people within a givcu spaco of time,
had been reached. But notwithstand
ing this extraordinary record the ach
ievement of this company on tho in
augural occasion just passed surpasses
all previom acuomplishmoots in this
direction. Tho company was prepared
lo do much moro than it did, an I had
not tho unusual inclemency of the
woathet intervened tho total result
would have been far greater.
One hundred and tiv" thousand cx
cursionists, including tho public, the
orgmizations, and tho military, were
delivered in Washington before noon
of March 4th, and all, except the olubs
and tho military, wc-ro lauded at the
Baltimore and Potomac Station. For
tho conveyance of this number it re
quired two hundred and ten trains
of ten cars each, with an averago of
fifty persons to each car. All tho
trains wcro run in soct'ons, and in
many cases the number of sections to
a given train reached ten. This invol
ved a continuous stream of crowded
oars entering iho station at intervals
of a few minutes, discharging their
passengers, and being shifted onl to
mako room for tho incoming current.
11 theso trains were moved piomnilv.
and no accident of any character oo
cured to mar tho success of tho work.
No unavoidable delay was experienc

An Interesting Inquiry.
If the proposed prohibitory amend
ment should be adopted in this state,
would it prohibit tho making of home
made wine grape wine, dandelion
wine, blackberry wine, etc. such as
is made by many families in tho
country district for homo purposes,
and used generally for tho relief of
certain complaints and disorders that
do not rcqtilro a physician's attention,
which is both expensive and incon

Phtcnlxvillc, Pn., Feb. 21. J. W. II.
The proposed amendment to tho
Constitution, if adopted, would clearly
prohibit tho making of domestic wine.,
beer or cider to bo used as a beverage.
Tho Lpgishtnre is empowered to
authorize hou'ewives to mako wine
for medicine, or tho farmer to make
cider for vinegar, but not to be used as
St. Paul advised timothy to use a littlo
wino, for his stomach's sake, on his
own prescription. Tho language of
Ihu amendment is as follows:
Tho manufacture, sale or keeping
for Bale of intoxicating liquor to be
used a i a bovorage is heieby prohibited,
nnd any viol ition of this shall ba a
misdemeanor punishable as shall bo
provided by law.
J. he manufacture, salo or keeing for
sale of intoxicating liquors for other
purposes than as a beverage may bo
allowed in Bitch manner only as may
be prescribed by law. Tho General
Assembly shall, at the tirst session
succcding tho adoption of this article
of tho Constitution, enact laws with
adequate penalties for its enforcement.
i hern is no mistaking tho iron-clad
character of this language. The farm
ers who vote lor 1'rohibition may as
well pull down their cider-mills and
havo their good wives convert all their
grapes and berries into jam.
Tha Profound Slumber of Mrs. Althouse,
Whose Oase is a Mystifying One
At Attica, N. Y, thoy have been in
a state of wonder oyer the case of
Mrs. Emma Althouse, who has now
been "dreaming tho happy hours
away," for days. In August, 1887,
alter obtaining "relief from a severe ill
ness, sho fell into a series of slumbers
of an averago duration of from three
to ten days.
In iho intervals when sho is awako
she converses upon her condition, and
predicts tho length of eyery trance.
When sho goes to sleep sho tells either
a physician or an attendant just how
long her slumber will last, and she
carries out her prediction to tho letter,
never permitting herself to ba aroused
till the terra is finished,
Mrs. Althousu is married and has
ono child. Sho is 25 years old. Her
parents camo to America Lorn Ger
many 34 years ago. In March, 1888,
sho sank into a trance, which lasu-d
35 days. Just previous to this trance
Bhe partook of more nourishment thin
usual, a glassfull or milk by means of
a teaspoon. After ebo goes to sleep
hor teeth aro tightly set together, and
nil effotts to pry them apart for tho
purpos-j of giving her fo d have been
These trances aro not all tho myst

Juno last there was an attempt to jiis

been called, tonnd her stiltering irom
cramps. Sho app aed to bo almost
lifeless, aud was vomitinc a nroinish
substance. Sho was relieved by em
etics. It appeared that almost an
hour b--foro two men called at tho
house asking to seo the paiieut, affirm
ing that tho doctor hal seat them.
Hearing them spak, Mrs. Althouso
rocogniz"d their voices, and said sho

however, brushed by a sister who was
in altciidinco and entered the room
win-re tho sick woman lay. One of
them talked to tho patient while tho
other sat by a table upon which wero
puuH oi medtciiio ami a cup of colfeo.
Atter the men loll Mr. Althouse ask
ed for a diiuk. Her sister gavo her
tho coffee lint bad been stauding on
tho table. Sho hid no sooner drank it
than sho oomplaiiied of a binning
sensattou in her throa'; she becamo
very p.ilu and was seiz-td with cramps.
Tho plnsiciau examined the divus
left in tho bottom of thecoffeocup nnd
also tho contents ol a phial standing
on tho table. In a fow davs they both
turned g'een. Tho bo ly of tho patient
was soon atterwarls oivered with
black spots. The case was tiken be
fore tho district attorney, but nothing
was done about it.
Last D.'cetub.'r Mrs. Althouse went
to sleep again for nine days, awaken
ing January !l, when sho said sho
would go into a traioa lastiniz lonccr
than any sho had jet been through,
and at 3 o'clock in tho afternoon sho
was again Numbering.
