THE HUNTINGDON . GLOBE, A DEMOCRATIC FAMILY JOURNAL, DEVOTED TO LOCAL AND GENERAL NEWS, &C.
E JCIEEE ALARM ;
FTHE INDIAN AND HIS VISION.
'Twas a cold stormy night in the fall of
1813, and Miner Spicer and his -wife had
drawn their seats in front of the blazing fire
which roared in the large open fire place of
their cabin, and were talking of absent
friends. Together with his brother, Mr.
Amos Spicer, he had removed from New Lon
don, Conn., to the neighborhood of Akron,
Ohio, in 1811, and erected his log cabin in
the midst of the forest, which was fast being
thinned out before the strong arm of the new
settler, and giving place to green fields and
pastured lands. The hoarse moaning of the
wind, as it sighed through the boughs of the
trees, and the heavy pattering of the rain on
the roof, served to lighten the comfort and
increase the enjoyment of their chimney cor
ner; and it is not to be wondered at, when
we consider the subject of conversation, that
they should sit long after the usual period of
retiring in cozy chat, nor dreamed of the
passing hours. A sudden stop to the col
loquy was caused by the sound of a horse's
hoofs approaching the door, and in a moment
after a shout from without intimated that
some one desired to attract the attention of
the inmates of the house. Mr. Spicer arose,
opened the door, and passed out into the
night. He could recognize the outline of a
man on horseback, but the darkness which
shrouded all objects in gloom, prevented him
from distinguishing the features or anything
whereby he might guess at the character of
his visitor. To his question of "who's there?"
a volley of sounds were uttered by the stran
ger—as unintelligible to Spicer as so much
Greek or Arabic. He was somewhat ,anger
ed at such an attempt to answer his simple
qiieStion, and told the other that he must
speak English, or - `• he would unhorse him.
By this time his eyes had become accustomed
to - the darkness, and he was able to makeout
the stranger to be an Indian, mounted on a
small sized, rough and wiry looking pony
-which, beside his master, bore on his back
the carcass of a deer.
.By signs, and a few
words of English, the Indian was enabled to
make Spicer understand that he wanted to /
stay'all night with him. To this request a
very reluctant assent was given, for an Indi
an warrior was not, at that period, the most
pleasing and harmless guest a man could
have in his house, and Spicer was not the
warmest friend to the red man of the forest.
However, the request had been made, and he
would not even turn an enemy from his door
an such a night; so he was bid to dismount
and enter, while his horse was led to a large
pig-sty near, which was the only semblance
of a stable about the premises. The carcass
of the deer was carried into the house, to
gether with two rilles which the Indian bore.
Spicer did not like the looks of his guest
when the full blaze of the fire lit up his per
son, and the fact of his being so well armed
—for, besides his rifles, he carried in his belt
a tomahawk and scalping knife—arm/scalds
suspicion of the object of his visit. The In
probably noticed this fact by the expres
sion of his face, and rid himself of his weap
ons, which he placed in the corner with his
rifles. Re-assured by this act, Spicer threw
off somewhat of his reserve, and asked the
other if he wanted any supper. Without
replying in words, the Indian took his knife,
and, going to the carcass of the deer, cut off
two steaks, which he handed to Mrs. Spicer,
who understood well enough what was ex
pected of her. She accordingly put them
over the fire to broil, and meantime laid the
table with such other eatables as the cabin
afforded. When the meat was sufficiently
cooked, as she thought, it was taken from the
fire, and thoroughly seasoned with salt and
pepper, after the white man's method of
The Indian, who had sat in silence during
the preparation of the meal, was called to
eat, and. drew up his chair for that purpose.
But both Spicer and his wife noticed that he
ate but a mouthful or two of the meat, with
- which, for some reason which they could not
divine, he seem disgusted. Nothing was said
by either party ; and the table was cleared,
as it had been spread, in silence. A skin
was laid upon the floor in front of the fire for
the Indian to sleep upon, and Spicer and his
wife retired to bed in a room which adjoined
the main apartment, and which, from the
position of their couch, gave them a full
view of the other room, together with the
Indian, his arms, &c. The carcass of the
deer had been laid by the side of the dresser,
svhich was next to the door between the two
apartments, so that a person in passing from
one to the other would almost step over it.
Before going to bed, Spicer had taken care
to see that his rifle was in good order, and
placed at the head of his bed, where he could
reach it with ease, should necessity require
its use. His suspicions of his guest had not
been entirely ' allayed, and although be was
careful to avoid showing them, yet he thought
best to prepare for any emergency. Both
parties laid them down to repose, and soon
nothing but the rain and the wind broke the
silence of the night.
An hour had passed—it might have been
longer, for he could only guess at the time—
and Spicer found himself wide awake, and
all his faculties on the stretch. What had
wakened him he could not tell, but his glance
was directed at his guest; and, although the
fire had burned low, and only threw a faint
light on the 'objects in the other apartment,
yet he saw that he had partly risen from his
pallet, and was in a sitting posture, leaning
on one hand, and intently gazing into the
room where he slept. Quietly nudging his
wife, be found that she, too, was awake, and
watching the movements of the Indian.
Slowly and cautiously the latter raised him
self to his feet, and, apparently satisfied that
his host was sound asleep, he approached the
corner where his rifle, 'tomahawk and knife
had been placed. Here he again paused and
look stealthily over his shoulder to see if all
was quiet. The feelings of Spicer and his
wife may perhaps be imagined, but they
cannot be described. Satisfied of the inten
tions of his guest, he was about to reach for
his ride, but thought he would wait the far
ther devolopement of his intentions. The
slightest movement, even a change in their
breathing, he knew, would alarm the warri
or, and he lay therefore perfectly quiescent,
but prepared to act when the time came for
action. lie saw the Indian stop, pick up his
knife, draw it from the sheath and feel its
edge, and in a moment more he was approach
ing the door to his apartment with a noise
less cat-like tread. Quick as thought, Spi
cer's plan was arranged—and that was, the
moment the Indian crossed the threshold, to
spring up and seize his rifle, and, as the other
was only armed with his knife, he could shoot
him before he could either strike a blow or
reach his other arms.
Another step would bring the enemy to
the prescribed limit, and every nerve was
stretched preparatory for a spring, when to
his surprise, he saw him kneel, and after
looking to see if all was still, cut a steak
weighing about two pounds from the deer's
haunch, and return with it to the fire. Here
he raked together the coals, upon which lie
laid the meat until it was cooked to his satis
faction, when he devoured it with much ap
parent relish, and then laid himself down to
sleep. It seems that Mrs. Spicer's method
of cooking venison was not to his liking, and
he had preferred to curb his appetite until
he could cook it to suit his own taste. High
seasoned food is as distasteful to an Indian
as the same food raw would be to a white
man. In the morning, after presenting Spi
cer with a haunch of his venison, the Indian
explained his visit by saying, as well as he
could by signs and broken English, that him
self and father had lost themselves in the
woods, and after covering his parent with his
blanket, and hiding him in a hollow log, he
had wandered in search of a shelter for him
self, until he saw the light in Spicer's cabin.

Wheat and What It Costs
We find the following statistics of the cost
of a crop of wheat on a small scale, in the
N. E. Farmer. It seems to be a fair state
ment, and we submit it to farmers farther
west, for their consideration, and will be glad
to receive any statement from them as to.
" wheat and what it costs," in their region.
I send you the product and cost of a crop
of spring wheat raised by me this year, on
about 6i acres of land. In this account the
labor is charged at its cost; labor of a pair
of oxen is charged at 06 cents per day ; horse
the same; board of men at 33,i cents per
day; no manure charged, none having been
applied. One piece of the land, about 1),
acres, was never before plowed. I assume
the value of the land to be $lOO per acre,
and the price of the grain to be what I think
it is worth to me for consumption.
76 bushels of wheat at $2,
6l tons of straw, (estimated) $6,
Plowing,, harrowing, sowing, and labor, $5 90
64 and Maw., 8 'A
Board of men at 33 1 / 3 . 5 GO
One-half chargeable. to succeeding crop of
clover and grabs, 9 99
Cradling, threshing, winnowing and labor. 15 50
tiu carting and team, ' ‘, 92
Board of ra - m at 33 per day, 767
bushels seed, 24 00
6 per cent. on $650, assumed value of land, 39 00
Taking my estimate of the value of the
grain and land and the quantity of the straw
to be correct, it will be seen that the crop
has paid a profit of 93 per cent.; the product
per acre being about an average crop. The
like results may, I think, be reached 0 years
in 10, and often exceeded, with suitable soil
and cultivation.—SAM um, RAYMOND, Andover,

we were induced to use some of your hair Restorative,
and its effects were so wonderful, we feel it our duty to
you and the afflicted, to report it.
Our little son's head for sonic time bad been perfectly
covered with sores, and some called it scald head. The
hair almost entirely came off in consequence, when a
friend, seeing his sufferings, advised us to use your Resto
rative; we did so with little hope of success, but, to our
surprise, and that of all our friends, a very few applica
tions removed the disease entirely, and a new and luxu
riant crop of hair soon started out, and we can now say
that our boy has as healthy a scalp, and as luxuriant a
crop of hair as any other child. We can, therefore, and

II E LIVER INVIGORATOR I
' PREPARED 33Y DR. SANFORD.—Compounaed en
tirety front GUYS is one of the best purgative and Liver
medicines now before the public, that acts as a Cathartic,
easier, milder, and more effectual than any other medicine
known. It is not only a Cathartic but a Liver remedy,
acting first on the Liver to eject its morbid matter, then
on the bowels and stomach to carry off that matter; thus
accoMplishing two purposes effectually, without any of the
painful feeling experienced in the operations of most
Cathartics. It strengthens the system at the same time
that it purges it; and when taken daily in moderate doses
will strengthen and build it up with unusual rapidity.
The Liver is one of the principal regulators of the
human body; and when it . performs its functionswell,
the powers of the system are fully developed. The
sromAen is almost entirelyr - ,72 dependent on the healthy
action of the LIVER. for the (....) proper performance of its
