A Tale f I'rlnrlplm as* a Paay w. Renal.
IM I DI.III H.W Wnaatsln Jar
Hoaaht the Houl aa* Waa ikr Rraai..
A corresjiindent, writing from Tucaon,
Arizona, to the Pittsburg Telegraph,
tells the following interesting story of
frontier life:
" There cum* ' Mountain Joe' on
hia pouy," aaid my frieml, CoL Fleance
Fitr, Roy, to-day, aa wo weri> ill
the ahade of a spreading mulberry, in
the Oram! Plaza. The person referred
to waa a handsome-looking young man of
perhaps thirty-flea, something alajve the
medium height, of graceful carriage Mid
agile appearance. Ho waa armed with a
half-carbine, b&lf-havy revolver, that
hung in a licit by hia left aide, and waa
clad m a buckskin suit.
"' Mountain Joe,' aa yon call him,
colonel, aeema to lie rather a tine speci
men of the frontiersman, but 1 don't see
anything remarkable aluut hia pony, to
which you partiealarlT refer." •
" Thereby hangs a tale, which I wiU
unfold if yon feel like liat-eniug to it."
"Go oh; tell it by all means."
"' Mountain Joe,' aa he is called, waa
born somewhere in the Eastern States,
and, infatuated with tlie Indian stones
he had read, nut away from hia parents
ami came to the Btmtti west. But he has
had nunc hard knocks since, and the
hardest were received in <4niiug that
pony, or rather $5 worth of it You ace,
a few year* £i> okl Honor Romuldo,
whose ranch he* oat along the Pinto
road, owned that pony and one of the
loveliest daughter* in all these parte.
He waa immensely wealthy Mid owned
several valuahlo "lainea, and there waa
no telling how much gold and silver bul
lion he had atonal away.
" Now, all tlie young fellows around
here were crazy after the girl Inez, luit
Joe set his heart on the pony, and
to buy it He is a fellow who always
has his own way, ami it is a blessed
gixal thing that hia head is always right
otherwise somebody would get into
trouble. But when Joe tried to bny the
pony everybody thought he was balked
for once.
" The Senor asked $65 for it and Joe
dug around to raise the money. He
raised it all except $5, and * wanted
Romuldo to trust him for the rest of it
till he would come back from a hunting
expedition. This the old Spanish cur
mndgeon refused to do, and Joe vainly
appealed to his friend* to loan him the
other V. Failing, he got mad and swore
that he would not lire in such a com
munity. One day he left and waa not
heard from for nearly a year.
" In the meaotune a hand of Kickapoo
Indiana swooped down upon Romuldo'a
ranche, daring his absence in town, ran
off hia stock and carried the pretty Inez
away into their mountain fastnesses.
Several parties went out in search of the
captive, only to he ambushed and whip
ped. Then it was that Senor Romuldo
began to bewail the absence of ' Moun
tain Joe,' for everybody had faith that
he could have rescued the lovely Inez
from the dreadful fat# in store for her.
" Finally, just as the unhappy Span
iard was giving up in despair, Joe sud
denly put in an appearance. •If yon
will recover my child,' said Romuldo,
• I will give you a half million dollars.
Yon may have half my property, and
whatever else yon may ask.' 'I am not
particular about the reward.' said Joe,
' but Til try and rescue the girL*
" And then he bet about making ' •
arations for the undertaking. Several
gallant young fellows volunteered to go
with him. bat he declined their services.
He oiled up that overgrown revolver of
his, stowed away about 500 cartridges
and about ten pounds of jerk oil meat in
his clothes, and taking the trail of the
Kickapooa, set oat in the early morning.
He followed it all day cautiously, and by
night was far np the mountains. The
next day, near noon, as he reached the
brow of an immense precipice, the red
skins opened on him in the rear.
"He was completely trapped. All
means of retreat were cat off. and there
was death both before and behind him.
But Joe made up his mind to die game.
Dodging behind a rock, he opened with
his snooting-iruQ and made it lively for
the ambuahera. Every shot told, and
soon a dozen dead Indians were stretch
ed out on the mountain top. But their
comrades were undaunted, and nearly a
hundred of them made a dash to seize
him. He had aimedv killed twenty-six
of them, but he saw that he must soon
be overpowered.
"Fight was impossible, and prefer
ring to kill himself rather than be tor
tared by the Indians, he rushed to the
precipice, fully 2,600 feet high, and
leaped into space.
"But during his fearful descent he
did not lose his presence of mind. He
was going down near the face of the
rocks, and observed that stunted pines
and hemlocks grew out of the frequent
crevices. He began grasping in the tops
of them, which first bent and then broke,
but he found that he was breaking the
force of his fall. For the last 300 feet
the bushes were thick, and Joe was soon
going down, dropping from one to the
other in perfect safety.
"At last he reached the bottom, suf
fering from a few bruises and several
rather sen on* wounds received in the
contest with the Indians overhead. Just
as he was congratulating himself upon
his wonderful escape another pack of
red devils broke the chapral and opened
fire. Another hand-to-hand contest took
place and Joe killed nine of his enemies.
He then started to run along the base of
the cliffi when on a sudden the earth
gave way nnder him and be fell into a
deep fissure. The Indians were imme
diately upon him, and fired two or three
volleys down the hole and then covered
it up with immense boulders.
"Joehs fallen twenty feet, and re
alizing tl danger from shots from
above, gi' under the shelving of the
rock and tnus avoided the balls. The
Indiana, supposing him dead, made no
further investigation*. Realizing his
desperate situation, Joe set about extri
cating himself, and found that he was in
a vast cave with 8 large number of rami
fications. In the midst of pitchy dark
ness he began his exploration, which
continued for four or five days, but which
to bim seemed as many years.
" The jerked meat on his person satis
fied the cravings of his appetite, and he
found plenty of pure water to drink. At
last he gave up, and lay down to die
Listening intently he heard what seemed
like human voices, and this once more
gave him heart Growling in the direc
tion from which the sounds came, be at
length reached a point from a which he
was able to look into a vast rotunda,
fitted np in barbaric splendor, and
lighted with pine knotA and sputtering
lamps, and there, reclining on a conch
ol bear skins, he beheld Inez Romuldo
talking with an old Indian squaw, who
apparently*was bar,'jailer.
•* At length the old hag withdrew in an
opposite direction, and Joe speedily
made his presence known to the fair
captive. A hurried consultation fol
lowed, and the whole situation was
taken in.
" Inez explained that she was held a
prisoner by the chief of the tribe, Red
Eagle, whe was determined she should
marry him. Red Eagle wss a half-
blood, his father being a Spaniard. The
entrance to the cave was narrow, well
concealed, mid its existence known only
to a few of the Indians. They still
swarmed in the mountains, bat in two
weeks were going south for a raid upon
the settlements, and only a small guard
were to be left in the cave.
" All this Inez hurriedly Explained to
Joe, and it was agreed that he was to lie
concealed in the unexplored portions of
the cave to the rear, reeover from jiis
wounds, and wait till the Indians left
before attempting a rescue, while Inez
was to furnish him with provisions from
her own allowance.
" The chief, lied Eagle, in the mean
time treated her with distinguished con
sideration, offering her no indignities,
and ordering that she should have what
ever she called for. After three weeks
of weary waiting Inez learned from the
old woman that Bod Eagle and his
braves had gone south, and that four
braves had bcuu left to guard her night
and day. They took up their places in
the far corner of the great hall, and Joe
waited impatiently until they should go
to sleep. Day aud night were the same
out one after
another to sleep. That sleep was their
I last, for four ahota from Joe's revolving

•'The old woman waa forced to guide
them to the entrance of the cave, which
waa found after many Mid tortuous wind
ings, Mid Inez Mid Joe emerged from
thoir living tomb just after sun rise. Joe
then saw that he had passed entirely
through the mountain.
" Romuldo MI I hia friends had long
given them both up for dead, and their
feeling* may lie I letter imagined than
deeeribul when they returned safe and
Miiiud after their miraculous adventures.
Ever nine# theu Joe has ridden tliat pony
and Isui been perfeotly happy."
•• But you don't mean to tell me,
(iiloufil.Uiat Joe got DO other reward than
that miserable little piece of horseflesh.
He inurriiil Inez, of course."
" Tliat's the way the story writers
would fix things," said the colonel, "but
they never deal in facta as I liave done.
The Moor waa as good as his won!, and
got a purveyor to divide the ranch into
two equal parts, Mid Joe almit

" • No, sir,' said Joe, * 1 wMit none of

" * I'll give you the pony and MlV

" But with all that Uie Honor could do
or nay, Joe made him take the stk and
let Hhiu have the pouy with $6 due

" Well, that is the mint unnatural
ending to a vnmderfulh romantic slory
I ever heanl Col. £itz Roy, there is
something wrong with the sentiment and

" Now, don't deceive yourself there
again," put in the colonel " ' Moun

A Black Hills Episode*
Five atnuiffcn, mounted ou thorough
bred-looking horses, wade their entrance
into this otv yesterday afternoon. writes
a correspondent trow Deed wood, in the
Black Hilla. They were all large anil
tongbduokiug citizens, Moh supplied
with a now light-colored sombrero and
otherwise disguised with new clothing
throughout. They swaggered about the
streets some time—a little too long for
their own gooiL About four o'clock a
vonng wan Mr the uaiue of Mav spottial
them aa mail agente—he having been
robbed bv them about four months ago.
Upon mating his discovery known to the
sheriff, that officer and his deputies went
in pursuit. Between six and seven
o'clock three of the number visited the
post-office with the officers close on their
heels. Young May was itching to turn
loose ou them with his little gun, and as
one was crossing the street he reoogmzed
him, when the fellow ranked his
revolver and opened fire. The first bul
let strnck May in the left arm, an inch
or two below the elbow. The wounded
man was equal to the desperate emerg
ency, and instantly pulled bis shooter
and began to empty it into the desperado.
They each exchanged four shots, when
the robber ran back to the post-office
and took possession of a saddle horse
standing there and struck out for tall
timber. Hereupon the cry of " stage
robber " was raised and a general furi
lade was opened on the fieeing wretc i.
He attempted to bull-dole the crowd by
firing upon them, bat the citizens of
Deaawood are not made of that kind of
stuff, and they sent at least fifty bullets
after him with good effect One ball
entered his back, penetrating his right
lang and lodging under his breast bone;
another struck the horse in the stifle and
came out of his breast, goiug lengthwise
through him. The wounded animal
carried his wounded rider to within a
few feet of the top of the hill, near town,
when he fell and rolled to the bottom.
The robber jumped off and continued
his course, but was gobbled by the
sheriff and lodged in jail. The other
two agents suffered arreet without re
During the shooting, the street was
alive with people, and the affair created
indescribable confusion among the pil
grim portion. They took refuge behind
the first thing they oonld reach. Some
threw themselves into a since ditch at
the side of the street,containing six inches
of water. Many of the windows in the
vicinity of the affray are penetrated by
the flying missiles. The strangest fea
ture of the whole thing is that not more
men were injured. With the exception
of those mentioned, one other man re
ceived a slight flesh wound in the face.
The wounded man will probably re
cover. The three captured are young
rangers from Texas. They refuse to
talk with any one, but put in their time
by cursing everything and everybody in
this country. Thev are a hard crowd.
Two of the original number are still at
Proverb*.—A Home Amusement.
One of the company who is to guess
the proverb leaves the room ; the re
maining plavers fix upon some proverb,
such as " Afl is not gold that glitters
" A bird in the hand is worth two in the
bush "Birds of a feather flock to
gether ;** " Train np a child in the way
ne should go ;" " A miss is as good as a
mile." A proverb being chosen, the
words are distributed in rotation through
the company, each player receiving a
word which he mast bring in the answer
he gives to any question asked by the
guesser. We will suppose the proverb,
" Train up a child in the way he should
go," to have been chosen. The first
person will receive the word "train,"
the second "np," the third "a," the
fourth 11 child," the fifth "in," the sixth
" the," and the seventh " way," and so
on. The person who has gone out is
now called in, and begins his questions
with the first player, something in the
following manner : Q. " Have you been
out to-day ?" A. "No I must train
myself to like walking better than I do."
He turns to the second player. (J. are
you a member of the National Ouard ?"
A. "No I gave it up some time ago."
The third player has aD easy task to
bring in the word ar, but the fourth,
with the word child, finds his work
more difficult. I/, " Are yr.u fond of
reading?" A. "Any child might
answer that question." Now, the
guesser, if he be a sharp reasoner, will
see that this answer is evasive, and only
given to bring in the word child. He
will, perhaps gness-the proverb at once;
and if he is a cautions personage he will
go on and finish the ronnd of questions
before committing himself by a guess,
for he is only allowed three. If he suc
ceeds in guessing the proverb, be has to
point out the person whose answer first
set him on the right track, who must
then pay a forfeit, and go out in his
turn to have his powers tested.
A Gambler'* Colo***] Fortune.
From Switzerland come* the announce
ment of the death of Francois Blanc,
■who accumulated a colossal fortune at
proprietor of the framing tables at the
watering place of Homburg, With the
permission of the ruling prince, he lregan
business there prior to 1840. He started
out in a small shanty, but coined money
so rapidly that in a short time he was
able to lay out the grounds about the
visage into a lovely park, filled with
beautiful summer nouses, restaurants
and fountains, and to erect a splendid
rurhauH for the accommodation of visit
ors and his faro and roulette tables. He
bad excellent concerts and the most at
tractive soiree* given at his expense ;
aud all the time he was growing richer
and richer. The big city of Frankfort
was near by, and every evening the
young men of the town took the train
for Homburg, where not a few of them
left their own and their employers' mon
ey. The display of money attracted
many daring thieves to the place, and at
one time it was said to be dangerous to
walk the streets alone. When the Ger
man government issued its decree pro
hibiting the watering-place gaming,
Blanc removed to Monaco, and ran an
establishment there until near his death.
His fortune is is estimated at 80,000,000
francs ($16,000,000); and, though a curse
is said to rest upon it, none of the heirs
seem disposed to hesitate about reviv
ing their share.

1874. In tlic latter part of that vcar she

purchased the residence at 4l'i Jone*

Mid was thereafter mostly nmthied to
her bed. ll was"ln>tweeu them
tliat their marriage should occur at
Christina*, 1876; but, die lieing aick iu
lied, it was postponed. Ou the eleventh
day at Jmiuary, 1877, the marriage c-re
mouy waa jierfuruied between tlmm.
That afternoon, aoeooipauied by her
tmnie Mid a friend, she rode to the office
of ths Safe lVjx*ut Company, lieing bol
stered np with pillows and taking stimu
lants duriug the ride. She gave direc
tions that her funds and property iu the
vaults of the company should lie subject
to access by Mr. Harrigiut. After re
turning home, she tried ou a wtvhliug which had been made for her, and
in ihe evening was dressed Mid aided

thought that the circumstances ware pe
cnliar, but as a number of reputable
people were present he did not deem it
ueces*ary for him to institute special in
quiries. She sat iu the parlor in an easy
chair during the evening, receiving stim
ulants from her nurse.
Two days after that the will in ques
tion was malt'. Prior to the marriage
ceremony she hail sent for an attorney
who had formerly transacted business
for her, and she advised with him in
reference to a will, and he prepared the
will in question, and was present at its
execution. Two physicians were also
present, and subscribed the will as wit
nesses. One physician was culled hi to
examine her as to soundness of mind.
His interview did uot exceed thirty
minutes, but he declared her of sound
mind. Another, physician, who had be
fore attended upon her, did not upon the
trial express a decided opinion upon
that subject, but on the evening of the
executiou of the will, after leaving the
house, did declare that he hail that eve
ning witnessed the execution of a will,
and that the woman who made it was no
more fit to make a will than a boy of
four years. The attorney read the will
to hew, section by section, and asked her
if that was her wish, to which she as
sented. She seemed, to the persons
present, to understand the business in
hand, although she was very ill and
weak. The will was executed and at
tested in dne form.
" The story of her remaining days is
soon told. She failed rapidly. On Fell.

found her in an iralxoile condition. On
March 10 her mi ml was entirely gone.
She was then weak and rick, helpless
and senseless, in which condition she
lingered until the fifth of April, and then
the end. During the lifetime of Fisher,
at least for some time, ahe (Mrs.
Fisher) hail been addicted to drink,
which caused restlessness, loss of sleep,
and frequent walking at night. .After
his death she drank more, and during
the past year or two of her life ahe

Under this decision the husband will
take one-half the property, provided his

half will go the daughter. If the mar

The estate is valued at about $70,000.
Insignificant as the common wooden
clothes-pin is itself, its manufacture
forme no mean part in American indus
tries, and the numerous factories in New
England and other States furnish em
ployment to thousands of people. There
are several large clothes-pin manufac
tories in Pennsylvania ami Ohio, and
one in the vicinity of Saratoga, N. Y.,
each of which in capable of turning ont
a thousand bores, or 72,000 pins )>er
week. There are several small factories
scattered throughout Massachusetts,
New Hampshire and Vermont, and all
are run by water-power. As a rnle,
those engaged in the manufacture oi
clothes-pins are Quakers. Beech, white
birch and poplar are the woods used in
making the article, the hirch and poplar
being considered the l>eat. The machin
ery employed is very simple. The wood
is first sawed into l>>gs of four feet in
length, and then cut into small snuare
sticks by means uf s cutting machine.
Each stick, after being rounded in a
lathe, is paused into another machine
which throws ont a number of perfectly
formed pins at one cut and with great
rapidity. The pins are then thrown into
a large revolving cylinder and smoothed
by friction with each other. New York
and Boston are the principal markets for
this ware, and henoe they are shipped in
large quantities to the' West, ami
Australia. Over 100,000 boxes o' pins
are annually sent to England, and a
corresponding number to Melbourne,
Sydney, New Zealand, and the Band
which Islands. Owing to the depression
in business the past two years, prions
have fallen off twenty-five per cent, and
some of the manufacturers in New
England have ceased operations because
they oonld buy cheeper from the West
than they could manufacture themselves,
besides saving the expenses of packing
and transportation. The price depends
eutirely upon the finish and number in
a box.

Kouigshofen, on the Tauber, is the
dueling ground of the fioutli Germsn
students. It lies ou the line of railway
between Heidelberg and Warsburg, and
is a sort of Pluinstead Marshes for the
fierce young Philistines whose honor

London Echo states that one day about
three months ago, a special carriage load
of nearly one hundred Burachen (boys)
from the universities of Erlnngen, Wurz

but the suspicions of tho hotel keeper
were at last aroused by the continual

beautiful, highly educated girl, of good
family, wbo had lost her jtarenU, and
with them all resources, applied to him
for employment. He bad, after listening
to her story, though she was s novice to
business, been touched by ber friendless
situation, gave her'employment, and he i
hail found her a worthy and exemplary
girl. The captain saw and admired. He
bought of her and introduced himself.
He came often, bought more, and upon I
inquiry found all particulars to hare
been truthfully stated. His manners
and appearance pleased the girl, and
when he told her the story of how his

tloa, and general church nutlionties
viewed the body. The coffin was then
fastened ap, and placed upon a rata
fulqnn raised almve the heads of the
audieuoe. The coffin was of plain rose
wood, with silver handles, without in

paper prepared by Brigham four years

to the burial of his .body, requesting
that ft le placed in a oofflu f good red
