rounded by a score of Kaffirs. His cap was

He pave a shout, and in an instant had
turned his horse and dashed toward the
"Come back, man, come back," Captain
Twentyman shouted, "it's madness."
But Bonald did not hear him; the man
whose confession could alone absolutely
clear him "was in the hands ot the Kaffirs
and must be saved at any cost. A moment
later he was in the midst of the natives
emptying his revolvers among then. For
rester had sunk on one knee as Bonald, hav

in the face of a Kaffir, and then leaning
over, caught Forrester by the collar and

across the saddle in front of him, then bend

lines. Three assegais had struck him, and
he reeled in the saddle as amidst the cheers
of his companions he rode up.
"One of yon take the wounded man in
front of you," lieutenant Daniels said,
"and carry him to the rear. Thompson, do
you jump up behind Sergeant Blunt, and
support him back to the rear. There is no
time to be lost; quick, man. These fellows
are coming on like furies."
The exchange was made in half a minute;
one of the men took George Forrester before
him, another sprang up behind Ronald and
held him in his saddle with one hand, while
he took the reins in the other. Then he rode
fast to the rear, just as the leading battalion
of infantry came up at a run and opened fire
on the Kaffirs, who, with wild yells, were
pressing on the rear bf the cavalry.
"When Ranald recovered his senses he was
lying in the ambulance wagon, ana the sur
geon was dressing his wound1!.
"That's right. Sergeant," he said cheer
ingly, "I think you will do. You have
three nastv wounds, but bv good luck I
don't think any of them are vital."
"How is Forrester"" Bonald asked,
"Forrester?" the surgeon said in surprise.
"Who do vou mean. Blunt?"
"I mean Jim Smith, sir; his real name is
"There is nothing to be done for him," the
surgeon said. "Nothing can save him; he
is riddled with assegais."
"Is he conscious?" Bonald asked.
"No, not at present."
"Will he become conscious before he dies,
"I don'tknow," the surgeon replied, some
what puzzled at Ronald's question. "He
may be, but I cannot say."
"It is everything to mc, sir," Bonald
said. "I have been accused of a great crime
of which he is the author. He can clear me
if he Mill. All my life depends upon his
"Then I hope he may be able to speak,
Blunt, but at present I can't say whether he
will recover consciousness or not. He is in
the wagon here, and I will let you know
directly if there is any change."
Bonald lay quiet, listening to the firing
that gradually became more distant, show
ing that the infantry were driving the
Kaffirs back into the bush. Wounded men
-were brought in fast, and the surgeon and
his assistant were fully occupied. The
r agon was halted now, and at Bonald's re
quest the stretchers upon which he and For
rester were lying were taken out and laid
on the grass under the shade of a tree.
Toward evening, the surgeon having fin
ished his pressing work, came to them. He
felt George Forrester's pulse.
"He is sinking last." he said, in reply to
Bonald's anxious look. "I will see what I
He poured some brandy between George
Forrester's lips, and held a bottle of am
monia to his nose. Presently there was a
deep sigh, and then Forrester opened his
eyes. For a minute he looked round
vaguely, and then his eye fell upon Bonald.
"So you got me out of the hands of the
Kaffirs, Captain Mervyn,"he said in a faint
voice. "I caught Bight of you among them
as I went down. I know they have done for
me, but I would rather be buried whole
than hacked into pieces."
"I did my best for you. Forrester," Mer
vyn said. "I was sorry I was not up a
minute sooner. Now, Forrester, vou see I
have been hit pretty hard, too; will you do
oue thing for me? I want you to confess
about what I was speaking to you; it will
make all the difference to other people."
"I may as well tell the truth as not,"
Forrester said; 'though I don't see how it
makes mnch difference."
"Doctor," Bonald said, "could you kindly
send and ask Captain Twentyman and
Xieutenant Daniels to come here at once?
I want them to hear."
George Forrester's eyes were closed, and
he was breathing faintly when the two
officers, who had ridden up a few minutes
before with their corps, came up to the spot.
The surgeon gave the wounded man some
"Will you write down what he says?"
Bonald said to Captain Twentvman.
The latter toot out a notebook and pencil.
"I make this confession," Forrester said
faintly, "at the request of Captain Mervyn,
who risked his life in getting me out trom
among the Kaffirs. My real name is George
Forrester, and at home I live near Carnes
ford, in Devonshire. I was one night poach
ing in Mr. Carne's woods with some men
from Dareport, when we came upon the
keepers. There was a fight One of the keep
ers knocked my gun out of my hand, and as
he raised his gnn to knock me on tbe head
I whipped out my knife, opened it, and
stuck it into him. I didn't mean to kill him,
it was just done in a moment; but he died
from it. We ran away. Afterward I found
that I had lost my knife. I supposed I
dropped it. That's all I have to say."
".Not all, Forrester, not all," said Bonald,
who had listened with impatience to the
slowly-uttered words of the wounded man;
"not all. It isn't that, but about the mur
der of Miss Carne I want you to tell."
"The murder of Miss Carne." George For
rester repeated, slowly. J know nothing
about that She made Buth break it off
with me, and I nearly killed Buth, and I
would have killed her if I had had the
chance, but I never had. I was glad when
I heard she was killed, but I don't know
who did it."
"But your knife was found by her body,"
Bonald said. "Xou must have done it,
"Murdered Miss Carne!" the man said,
half raising himself on his elbow in sur
prise. "Never. I swear I had nothing to
do with it"
A rush of blood poured from his mouth,
for one of the assegais had pierced his lung,
and a moment later George Forrester fell
back dead. The disappointment and revul
sion of feeling were too great for Bonald
Mervyn, and he fainted. When he recov
ered the surgeon was leaning over him.
"You musn't talk, lad; you must keep
yourself quite quiet, or we will have fever
setting in and all sorts of -trouble."
Bonald closed his eyes, and lay back
quietly. How could this be? He thought
ot "Mary Armstrong's letter, of the chain of
prools that had accumulated against George
Forrester; they seemed absolutely convinc
ing, and jet there was no doubting the ring
of troth in the last words of the dying man.
His surprise at the accusation was genuine;
his assertion of his innocence absolutely
convincing; he had no motive for lving, he
-was dying and he knew it Besides, the
thing had come so suddenly upon him that
there would be no tixe for him to frame a
lie even if he had been in a mental condi
tion to do so. Whoever killed Margaret
Carne, Bonald Mervyn was at once con
vinced that it was not George Forrester.
There he lay, thinking for hours over the
disappointment that the news would be to
Mary Armstrong, and how it seemed more
unlikely than ever that the mystery would
ever be cleared up now. Gradually, his
thoughts became more vague, until at last
lie fell asleep.
Upon the following day tbe wounded were
sent down under an escort to King Will
iamstown, and there for a month Bonald
Mervyn lay in hospital. He had written a
few lines to Mary Armstrong, saying that
he had b;en wounded, but not dangerously,
and that she need not be anxious about him
any more, for the Kaffirs were now almost
dnven from their last stronghold, and that
the fighting would almost certainly be over
before he was fit to mount his horse again.
"George Forrester is dead," he said. "He
was mortally wounded when fighting bravely
against the Kaffirs. I fear, dear, that your
ideas about him were mistaken, and that he,
like myself, has been tbe victim of circum
stantial evidence; but 1 will tell you more
about this when I write to you next."
While lying there, Bonald thought over
and over again about the evidence that had
been collected against George Forrester,
and whether it should be published, as Mary
had proposed. It would, doubtless, be ac
cepted by the world as proof of Forrester's
guilt and of his own innocence, and even
the fact that the man, when dying, had de
nied it, would.weigh for very little with the
public, for men proved indisputably to be
guilty often go to the scaffold asserting
their innocence to the last But would it
be right to throw this crime upon the dead
man when he was sure that he wasinnocent?
For Bonald did not doubt for a moment the
truth of the denial. Had he a right, even
for thesakeof Mary's happiness and hisown,
to charge the memory of the dead man with
the burden of this foul crime? Bonald
felt that it could not be. The temptation
was strong, but he fought long against it
And at last his mind was made up.
"No," he said at last, "I will not do it
George Forrester was no doubt a bad man,
but he was not so bad as this. It would be
worse to charge his memory with it than to
accuse him it he were alive. In the one
case he might clear himself; in the other he
cannot I cannot clear my name by fouling
that of the dead man."
And so Bonald at last sat down to write a
long letter to Mary Armstrong, telling her
the whole circumstances; the joy with which
he received her news; his conversation with
George Forrester, which seemed wholly to
confirm her views; the pang of agony he had
felt when he saw the man whom he believed
could alone clear him in the hands of the
Kaffirs, and his desperate charge to rescue
him; and then he gave the words of the con
fession, and expressed his absolute belief
that tbe dying man had spoken the truth,
and that he was really innocent of Margaret
He then discussed the question of still
publishing Buth Powlett's statement, giving
first the cause of George Forrester's enmity
against Margaret Carne, and the threat that
he had uttered, and then the discovery of the
"I fear that vou will be ashamed of me,
Mary, when I tell you that for a time I al
most yielded to the temptation of clearing
myself at his expense. But you must make
allowance for the strength of thetemptation;
on the one side was the thought of my
honor restored, and of you won; on the other
the thought that now George Forrester was
dead, this could not harm him. "But, of
course, I finally put the temptation aside;
honor purchased at the expense of a dead
man's reputation would be dishonor indeed.
Now I can fane disgrace, because I know I
am innocent. I could not face honor when
I knew that I had done a dishonorable
action; and I know that I should utterly for
feit your love and esteem did I do so. I can
look you straight in the face now; I could
never look you straight in the
face then. Do not grieve too
much over the disappointment We are
now only as we were when I said goodby to
you. I had no hope then that you would
ever succeed in clearing me, and I have no
hope now. I have not got up my strength
again yet, and lam therefore perhaps just
at present a little more disposed to repine
over the disappointment than I thought I
should be; but this will wear off when I get
in the saddle again. There will, I think, be
no more fighting at any rate with the
Sandilli Kaffirs lor we hearthis morning
that they have sent in to beg for peace.and I
am certain we shall be glad enongh to grant
it, for we have not much to boast about in
the campaign. Of course they-will have to
pay a very heaw fine in cattle, and will
have to move across to the other side of the
Kei. Equally of course there will be
trouble with them again after a time, when
the memory of their losses has somewhat
abated. I lancy a portion of the force will
march against the Basutos, whose attitude
has lately been very hostile; but now that
the Gaikas have given in, and we are free
to nse our whole force against them, it is
scarcely probable that they will venture to
try conclusions with us. If they settle
down peaceably I shall probablv apply for
my discharge, and perhaps go in lor tarm
ing or carry out my first idea of joining a
party of traders going up the country, and
getting some shooting among the big "game.
"Iknow that, disappointed as you will be
with the news contained in this letter, it
will be a pleasure to you to tell the girl
you have made your friend that after all the
man she once loved is innocent ot this terri
ble crime. She must have suffered horribly
while she was hiding what she thought was
the most important part of tbe evidence;
now she will see that she has really done no
harm; and as you seem to be really fond ot
her, it will, I am sure, be a great pleasure
to you to be able to restore her peace ot
mind in both these respects. I should think
now that you and your father .will .not re
main anv longer at -Carnesford, where
neither o.' you have any fitting society of
any sort, but will go and settle somewhere
in your proper position. I would much
rather that you did, for now that it seems
absolutely certain that nothing further is to
be learned, it would trouble me to think of
you wasting your lives at Carnesford.
"You said in your last letter that the dis
covery you had made had brought you four
years nearer to happiness, bat I have never
said a word to admit that I should change
my mind at the end of the five years that
vonr father spoke of. Still, I don't know,
Mary. I think my position is stronger by a
great deal than it was six months ago. I
told my captain who I was, and all the
other officers now know. Most of them
came up and spoke very kindly to me be
fore I started on my way down here, and I
am sure that when I leave the corps they
will give me a testimonial, saying that they
are convinced from my behavior while in
the corps that I could not have been guilty
of this crime. I own that I myself am less
sensitive on the subject than I was. One
has no time to be morbid while leading such
a life as I have been for the last nine
months. Perhaps but I will not say
any more now. But I think some
how that at the end of the five years I shall
leave the decision in your hands. It has
taken me two or three days to write this let
ter, for I am not strong enough to stick to it
for more than half an hour at a time, but as
the post goes out this afternoon I must close
it now. We have been expecting a mail
from England for some days. It is consid
erably overdue, and I need not say how I
am longing for another letter from you. I
hear the regiment will be back from the
front to-night; even the horses want a lew
days ret before starting on this long march
to Basutoland. I shall be very glad to see
them back again. Of course, ihe invalids
here, like myself, are somewhat pulled
down by their wounds, and disgusted at
being kept here. The weather is frightfully
hot, and even in our shirt sleeves we shall
be hardly able to enjoy Christmas day."
The Cape Rifles arrived at King Will
iamstown an hour after the post had left,
and in the evening the Colonel and several
of the officers paid a visit to the hospital to
see how their wounded were getting on.
Bonald, who was sitting reading by his bed
side, and the other invalids who were strong
enough to be on their feet, at once got up
and stood at attention. Stopping and speak
ing a few words to each of the men ot his
own corps, the Colonel came on. "Mervyn,"
he said, as he and the officers came up to
Bonald, "I want to shake your hand." I
have heard your story from Captain Twen
tyman, and I wish to tell you, in my own
name andin the name of the other officers
of the regiment, that we are sure yon have
been the victim ot some horrible'mistake,
and all of us are absolutely convinced that
a man who has shown such extreme gal
lantry as you have, and whose conduct
has been so excellent from the
day he joined, is wholly incapable
of such a crime as that with
which you were charged. You were, of
course, acquitted, but at the same time I
think that it cannot hut be a satisfaction lor
you to know that you haVe won the esteem
of your officers and yonr comrades, and that
in their eyes you are free from the slightest
taint of that black business. Give me your
Bonald was unable to speak: the Colonel
and all the officers shook him by the hand,
and the former said: "I must have another
long talk with "you when we get back from
the Basuto business. I have mentioned you
very strongly in regimental orders upon two
occasions for extreme gallantry, and I can
not but think that a letter signed by me in
the English papers, saying that the Sergeant
Blunt of my regiment, who so signally dis
tinguished himself, is really Captain Mer
wn, who in my opinion and that of my
officers was so unjustly accused, would do
you some good in the eyes of the public;
but we can talk over that when I see you
After the officer left the room, Bonald
Mervyn sat lor some time with his face
buried in his bands. The Colonel's words
had greatly moved him. -Surely such a let
ter as that which Colonel Somerset had pro
posed to write would do much to clear him.
He should never think of taking his cfwn
name again or re-entering any society in
which he would be likely to be recognized,
but surely with such a testimonial as that in
his favor he might hope in some quiet place
to live down the past and should he again
be recognized, could face evil reports with
such an honorable record as this to produce
in his favor. Then his thoughts went back
to England. What would Mary and her
father say when they read such a letter in
the paper? It would be no proof of his in
nocence, and yet he felt sure that a Mary
would insist upon regarding it as such, and
would hold that he had no right to keep her
waiting for another four years, and that if
she did so he would be unable to refuse any
longer to permit her to be mistress of her
HE LIKES TAB PRESIDENT.
Edward Everett Halo's Impression! of
General Benjamin Harrison.
From Gossip of the Magazines.
I saw President Harrison first in the
Senate chamber and on the platform of the
"Capitol at his inauguration; I saw him next
at the magnificent dinner party in new
York at the Grand Opera House on the 30th
of April; and I have seen him now. And
I am sure of this, there is in him a pensive
vein of imagination, one might say of poetry,
which you do not find in mere politicians,
and which is not often found in
statesmen. Do you not remember how, in.
those little speeches in the days of the can
vass, he always struck some unexpected
note, and told the hearers something they
had never thought of before? Well, that
belongs to this imaginative faculty. In the
Senate chamber, while the formal proceed
ings belonging to the new birth of the Sen
ate went on, this man sat as if he were
dreaming. He was not looking on
any person or anything, lie was
looking into eternity. Half an hour
after I stood behind him when he was de
livering his inaugural. The rain was pour
ing in sheets, not drops. The water rolled
down the paper in his hand, and dripped
inky from the lower margin. Yet hestood as
if wholly unconscious of the elements, and
delivered that speech with energy like Na
poleon's at the Bridge of Lodi. Bain or no
rain what was that? His business was to
say how the Republic should be maintained.
Again, at the opera house he sat through
five hours of the worst speaking you ever
heard. Ten worse speeches than were spoken
there are not to be found in literatnre.
I watched him again. listening? Yes, in
a fashion; but, all the time he listened,
dreaming, if you please, fancying, imagin
ing. At the end. of that evening I think he
had a fuller and better idea of what was in
that theater than any other man there. And
then, after the dreariness of those ten
speeches, he was called up. He spoke per
haps ten minutes. The speech was entirely
ex tempore in form. It was pathetic, it was
humorous at times, it was tender, it was
dignihed. It held the tired audience as only
perfect speaking does or can; and people
went away more alive for it, more glad of
the Centennial, more awake to all that it
had to teach tbe nation. So quickened were
thev, indeed, that almost every one
of " them will tell you now that
all the speaking of the evening was ad
mirable. For the end of a battle is what
makes it a victory or a failure. Now, here
he is again, not with a picked audience of a
thousand representatives of the best life of
America, but with a merry laughing crowd
of 3,000 or 4,000 Portsmouth people who
want to see a President. Once more he
enters wholly into the occasion, is wholly
at ease and natural, laughs with those who
laugh as he shakes hands with those who
shake hands. All this is genuine. Old
John Adam, or his son or Martin Van
Buren, or James Buchanan, or Polk or
Johnson, or any of that sort might as well
have tried to fly as to enter with such sim
plicity, sympathy and dignity into the life
ot these who are crowding round him.
IIow Bishops Leonard and Talbot Have
In the lives of the Bight Bev. Ethelbert
Talbot, Bishop of Wyoming, and the Bight
Bev. Abiel Leonard, Bishop of Utah, both
of whom have been in attendance at the
Episcopal Convention at New York, there
have been some rather curious coincidences.
Both lived as boys in the little town
of Lafayette, Mo.; they were born on the
same day of the month within a year of
each other, and were confirmed on the same
day bv the same Bishop. They entered the
same preparatory school on the same day,
and afterward when they went to college
they went together, and entered the same
class at Dartmouth on the same day. Dur
ing ihe four years of the undergraduate
course they were roommates, and they were
Both having selected the ministry as their
calling in life, they were ordained to the
diaconate and to the ministry on the same
day. Then there was a slight break in this
constant advancement together. The Bev.
Mr. Talbot was made a Bishop three years
ago, and his friend and companion was
made Bishop about a year later.
The two Bishops have already attained to
much distinction. They are the youngest
members of the House of Bishops, Bishop
Leonard being not qnite 42 and Bishop Tal
bot 41 years old. Bishop Talbot's promi
nence was gained by the success of his edu
cational work in Missouri, and Bishop
Leonard is known as an eloquent and forci
ble pulpit orator.
They were members of Dartmouth's fa
mous class of '70, of the 70 members of
which all but two have succeeded wonder
fully well in the various walks of life.

How They Share in Mining Profits Under

BRITISH LIFE PECULIAR AND DISTINCT
ICOItltESrONDENCE OF TBI DISPATCH.)
Camborne, Cobitwail, September 25
Copyright I have no thought of weary
ing the reader with Cornish mining statis
tics or history. The former is accessible in
all well-made encyclopedias. The latter,
one would have to begin on a good ways be
hind the Christian era. But the Cornish
miner himself is worth coming to see, to
know and tell about. He is such a brave,
sturdy, cleanly, religious fellow that you
cannot help having a power of respect for
himj and then, though an "out-and-outer"
of the sturdiest kind, he is so warm-hearted,
loyal and hospitable that he wins your
affection, if yon have not even half won his
trust and confidence.
For myself I had always imagined some
dark tales could be truthfully told about
these miners' labors and lives. Tragedies
and dolors among them are many, it is true;
but the odious injustices common to
.human beings in the great pits of Pennsyl
vania, and which ruin and depopulate entire
communities within the sound of church
bells, as in Illinois, are not known and
never have been known within the mines of
Cornwall. Two facts reveal the reason for
this. The first is a race.stubbornness and in
dependence, which, drawn from the very
Arthurian blood, as at least the miners
themselves sacredly cherish as a truth, has
never permitted that subtle encroachment
of money force and legal power which in
variably finds its ultimate in the serfdom of
labor. The second a fact which American
mine owners might study and adopt with
profit from interested helpers and contented,
instead of ever glowering and rebellious,
labor is in a system which from time im
memorial has made the Cornish miner
AN ENTHUSIASTIC SHAEEE
in mining profits,- or a patient and sympa
thetic bearer of mining losses. I refer to
the "tribute" system, as it is universally
known in Cornwall. This system, invaria
bly employed in the actual breaking down
and extraction of tin and copper ore, unites
the interests of the miners and their employ
ers. There is no otbersort of labor in vogue
in the Cornish mines save in the "dead
work" carried on for trial and discovery,
for which the miner is paid a fixed sum
per fathom for his labor. The "tributers"
then are the miners, all of whom receive
a certain percentage on the actual
value of all ore ' taken from
Cornish mines. Therefore the quality of all
ore raised is as important as the quantity,
and every stroke of a miner's hammer or
pick is made with precisely the same care
ful self and mutual interest as it could be
were the tools in the hands of the mine
directors themrelves. At every mine there
are a number of "'overlookers," captains or
agents whom the miners call "kepens."
These meet six times each year and deter
mine on the detail of the work to be done
for each succeeding two months, and among
themselves form an idea of what price
should be paid for each separate item of ex
cavation. "Setting day;" or contract-letting
The plan is practically an auction of petty
contracts. Each piece ot work is called in
turn, and bidding is done by the men who
begin at the highest price or percentage they
may hope to gain, and falling from this un
til satisfactory terms are made. The little
contract has not been taken by one man.
"Mates" or "pairdners" of three, fonr'and
sometimes half a dozen miners, these parties
universally designated a "core" (corps) in
Cornish mines, combine their labor. They
have undertaken on a certain "pitch" to
blast or break the ore which they call
"hure," wheel it, and
PAT ALL EXPENSES
of candles, blasting powder, and all other
materials necessary for the work. Every
month all ore "fatched to grass," that is.
raised to surface, is assayed and the "core"
receives in a lump, and 'divide between its
members as may have ben agreed upon,
their stipulated percentage or "tribute."
The "core" may at any time
throw up the contract on payment of
an agreed fine. As "pitches" are constantly
growing ricner or poorer, the result to the
miners is constantly variable. But it seldom
falls below living English wages, and occa
sionally in two months' time gives the miner
a handsome reward. Instances have been
known where a "core" of "tributers" have
made 1,000 by a single bargain. There is
no doubt that the system has contributed
through generations to the molding of the
Cornish miners' self-reliant, manly charac
ter. They are constantly called upon to
exercise forethought, ingenuity and the
faculty of invention. They are thus given
an individuality and manhood. Indeed,
they become part proprietors of the mines

with their own combined capital of labor;

m. This adjustment of "cores" provides
each gang or shift a fair chance to send their
ore "to grass" or surface; and to lollow a
miner through one day's experiences, which
are practically the same as those of all work
ing days of the year, will be found interest
ing as "a key to his life and character,. But
before doing this we must take a peep at the
COENISH MINEES HOMES.
They are seldom found clustering in dirty
villages contiguous to the mines as in our
own country. I do not recall a half dozen
instances of this sort in all Cornwall. Two,
three, four, very seldom a dozen, may be
found together: They are everywhere, on
the roafi, or off. Like the Irish cabins, you
will find them usually at the back, instead
of the front, of somewhere or anywhere.
Nearness to a mine seems to possess no ad
vantage. Few are as near as a half mile;
thousands are from two to six miles away.
"Pairdners" in a "core" may live in as many
different directions, Jem and Jack and Jan
often occupy homes sir or ten miles apart
But wherever the cottages are, their walls
are all of everlasting stone embowered in
brilliant Cornish creepers and roses, with
cement floors and thatched roofs, everyone
subject to interminable repairs from' on
slaughts of scores of vicious sparrows, tiny
miners themselves, endlessly sinking
shafts and drilling "cross-cuts" and
"levels" in the soft and yielding straw.
There is one room below, sometimes two,
and a half-story garret beneath the thatch.
There is only a front door. A window is at
either side of this, and sometimes directly
above these, tiny lights for the garret.
Each cottage at one end, or at the back, is
provided with an open fireplace in the cen
ter; a sort of a range at one side, ludi
crously .covered with brass ornaments at
which the housewife is endlessly polishing:
while at the other side is an "ungconer,"
with "heps" or upper and under doors for
storing furze faggots for fuel. The furniture
though scanty is honest and useful. At the
fireplace are the "brandis," a triangular
iron on legs, on which over furze, fires, tbe
kettles boil, the circular castiron "baker"
and cover are set, and the fish or meat,
when they can be luckily had, "scrowled"
or grilled. There are perhaps four chain,

singularly enough with solid mahogany
frames, but the seats are of painted pine
and are waxed weekly. These are for
"best," and all the best
FOB EYEET-DAY TJSE
one or two "firms" or rude benches are pro
vided. The single table is of pine, one top
coming flush with the sides, the other, de
tached, two inches thick, one side nnpainted
and scoured snowy white daily with
"growder," a rotten granite which lathers
like soap, and the other side painted for
Sunday or "company" use, and a drawer
beneath for the rude cutlery. The table
ware is something startling in cheap goods,
and each member of the family is provided
with a real "chany" cup and saucer with a
gorgeous gilt band. Two or three rude
engravings, generally of scriptural subjects
in cheap oaken frames such as the village
carpenter may make, with the- beds and
bedding under the thatch, complete the
furniture of the miner's cottage.
For his class and means he is a generous
liver. Soups and stews are consumed by the
gallon. For his breakfast, if he is out of the
mine, "mawther," the wife, will provide the
usually villainous "tay" consumed by ihe
English and Irish working classes, infre
quentlyan egg, perhaps a bit of saffron cake,
a Cornish favorite apparently devoid of
everything but sweet and color, and, may
be, bread (without butter) and treacle.
Sometimes this is varied with "butter sops,"
stale bread scalded and seasoned meagerly.
At noon, or for the mine "croust" or lunch,
there are "taty pasties," or potatoes and va
grant meat scraps inclosed in a crescent
shaped crust, interchangeable with "figgy
pasties," the same as "taty pasties" with a
few raisins added; "hoggans," or round
pork pies, and "faggans," tough crust cakes,
so hard, at least in Cornish renown, that
they would not break if hurled down a
1 000-fathom mine shaft For supper,
'croust," that is, lunch of any kind left over
from the day's provision? or perhaps "a
baker taties," which means mashed pota
toes fried in grease, turned and browned,
and cut in as many segments as there are
members or the family, may be provided.
The one big Sunday meal, however, is sel
dom lacking in a generous supply of boiling
meat; and as every cottage has its acre or
half-acre garden, there is nothing to hin
der an ample supply of vegetables.
A SINGLE DAY WITH HIM.
But let us follow this Cornish miner for
one day. We will suppose him to be one
of the "forenoon core" whose "shift" is
from 6 a. M. until 2 P. M. He will prob
ably live from four to six miles, say from
the great Dalcothmine here near Camborne,
which I nm visiting. He must rise at 3
o'clock. His cottage is cold, dark and
cheerless. Having donned his clothing,
which comprises coarse wool stockings,
cuordoroy trowsers, a gingham shirt,a cheap
ducking waistcoat, with huge, low, front
flapped pockets and cambric sleeves, a
"billy-cocked" hat of the "slouch" variety,
which lasts him ten years, if in winter a
rough "oiled coat," and tremendous hob
nailed shoes; he eats his cold "croust" which
the wife the previous night has left on the
table; gets his "fojrgan" or "pasty w" which
is always ready in a clean "crib-bag" in
the cupboard; lights his short pipe like an
Irish dudeen, which is explosively sucked
and cuffed and ponderously guarded by his
whole huge hand, and then sets out on his
rugged tramp. Nine times out of ten his
route is across howling moors, over danger
ous paths that literally wind about pit-falls,
or through six-foot lanes where the thorn
trees -prod and lance, him Bavagely. Dark
and drear this trip for any man. Pitch dark
and wild it always is for the Cornish miner,
for it nearly always rains in Cornwall, and
the wind forever rages over the rock-strewn
peninsula so that even the gravestones are
propped that the sign posts of the dead may
not be blown away. When the mine is
reached our miner goes directly to his own
locker in the "dryroom" near the great en
gine furnaces, where he prepares for his de
scent into the mine. He strips to the skin
and dons a complete coarse ducking suit, a
woolen shirt, high boots as stiff as sheet
iron, with hobs protruding from the soles as
big as the heads of "20-penny nails, and his
miner's hat, hard as a board, on the front of
which he slaps a chunk of putty-like clay.
This forms a socket for his candle, his only
light below. With this, his water-proof box
of' matches and his string of candles tied, or
"skewered," to his shirt or buttoned coat,he
seeks his "core-pairdners" at the "man
engine house" and is ready for the descent,
which for you or I is an experience full of
GKETVSOMENESS AND PEEIL.
The shafts of most Cornish mines are now
timbered in the center from top to bottom.
The "man-eneine" works, with a 25-foot
up and down stroke, a perpendicular spliced
timber, at this mine, 5,000 feet long. Every
25 feet are landings called "sollars." The
miner stands upon a step attached to this
gigantic rod and is instantly dropped 25
leet to the next "sollar," when he springs
aside upon the landing; for the reversal of
the motion is constantly bringing men from
below, and one miss-step loses him his turn,
or may cost him his life. "ThudI thudl"
for 20 "minutes and he has descended 5,000
feet into the bowels of the earth, and is at
once at work as only a Cornish miner will
work. But while hundreds of these human
fire-flies are ascending and descending,
another curious scene is in progress. Mine,
boys, helpers, scores of them, trom 15 to 18
years old, and the most recklessly daring
cubs in all England, scorning to
descend the "man-engine," have a
wild and startling way of their own.
At the corner of each shaft is a
"manhole" with stationary ladder from top
to bottom with smooth half round sides and
wrought iron "rungs." Springing upon
these like monkeys,the boys slide from one
"sollar" to another, their hands just touch
ing the slippery sides and the toes of their
hob-nailed shoes beating the iron rungs with
a horrible "whi-r-r-r-r-r!" the numbers en
gaged in the lightning like descent causing
deafening and shrill thunder as though the
iron ratchets at 100 ferries were clinkingand
The miner's life "below grass" is well
known to all. That of the Cornish miner is
not remarkably distinctive, save that his
proprietary interest renders him more daring.
He is brave to foolhardiness, and the aver
age of loss of life is greater here than else
where. Some curious characteristics are his.
He is eternally
SINGING WESLEYAN HYMNS
as he drills, blasts and wheels. He is al
ways a Methodist, and ever devout In
stances of his exalted heroism in the face of
certain death would fill a book. He is
hereditarily a hero. His religion, does not
as with some folk, diminish his bravery.
His eight hours ''shift" are hours of tre
mendous labor. But a trifling "touch-pipe"
or cessation is taken, when his "croust" or
lunch is eaten and just a "titch" or touch
at his pipe is enjoyed. When the shift
changes, he is away with song and good
cheer; goes "to grass" lively as a lad;
changes his clothing in the dryroom; washes
from head to foot; and "fatches for hoame"
with hundreds more, pouring from the ugiy
hole in the ground like a bevy of ants
from their hills, as fast as his stout
legs can carry him. Then come his
home labor and diversions. He toils in
his garden until dark; plays whist or at
draughts at some easy-going neighbor's
awhile; attends a "penny-reading" at times;
yarns it at the public house which he visits
sparingly; and never misses a "prayer meet
ing" where in his never failing religious ec
Etacv he makes the rafters tremble from his
fervid, pointed and personal invocations,
frequently pounding the oaken benches to
splinters with his sledge-hammer like fists.
Altogether he is a brave, good, generous
fellow, handsome at times as a lord; her
culean and given to pride in his strength at
wrestling and hurling; sincere, earnest,
grave and cheery by turns; the soul of in
tegrity and fidelity, and without a mean
thought or thing in him from the sole of his
hob-nailed shoes to tbe crown of his "billy
cocked".hat. Hdgab L. Wakeman.

THE MEN AS NURSES.
- ' ' -
They are Preferred to Women at the
West Fenn Hospital.
COOL ALWAYS,6ENTLE VERY OFTEN
Superintendent Cowan's Training School
is a Sick Bed.
D0CT0E8 WHO ABB GENEE0US, BEATE
The steady advance women have made in
hospitals in late years as nurses seem to
many i people prophetic of a female mo
nopoly. But an advertisement in The
Dispatch this week "for a male nurse"
set a reporter to thinking. An investiga
tion resulted, and it was found that men are
still preferred as nurses in some institu
tions, among them the West Penn Hos
pital. Superintendent Cowan said: "It wonldbe
a physical impossibility to run our hospital
with female nurses. We are obliged to
have males in the majority. Many of our
best nurses in the hospital to-day we re
ceived years ago as patients. To be a suc
cessful nurse it is necessary to have the com
bined qualities of perfect coolness and
sobriety. Often a man is received into the
hospital mangled to pieces. A nurse must
have the tact to move about him with agil
ity, yet handle him with all the gentleness
of a female nurse. '
COOL AND SOBER.
"We have had men apply for positions in
the hospital, and we have given them a trial,
but before they have been in the place halt
an hour tbey will throw off their aprons and
quit the work. I have seen blood stream
profusely from a wound, and the sight of it
has made a new nurse deathly sick. It is
impossible for a nervous man to undertake
"It is necessary to be sober. A nurse
handles' all kinds of liquors, and there is
much temptation for him to take an occa
sional nip. If he succumbs to the tempta
tion it incapacitates him for the faithful
discharge of his duties.
At least half our nurses have been
patients in the hospital. If any man has
impressed us with remarkable coolness dur
ing an operation; when he is convalescent
we always make overtures to him to become
a member of the nnrse's staff. Many of the
students from the medical school make ap
plication to us during vacation for admis
sion as hospital nurses, and offer their ser
VEBY GENEBOUS DOCTOBS.
Another matter which few people are ac
quainted with is that the medical and sur
gical staff give their services gratuitously.
There are four medical physicians and four
surgical doctors. They each do three
months' duty in the year. No matter what
time a call is made on them, or what the na
ture of the case may be, they have do sooner
been notified than an immediate and willing
response is given. Each day a surgeon and
a physician make a call at the
hospital, and take a tour through the wards.
We have three resident doctors who also
give their services for the benefit of the hos
pital. They come into the hospital service
The West Penn Hospital offers the finest
facilities for a young student. It has treated
the largest number of surgical cases in the
United States in a year.

An Interesting Case From That
Pleasant Little Town.
A LADY'S NOTABLE EXPERIENCE
About five miles out of Pittsburg on the
Pittsburg and Lake Erie Eailroad, is situ
ated the village ot Chartiers, one of the
pleasantest and'at the same time one of tbe
busiest of all our suburban towns. Large
steel works are located there, and the yard
and round houses of the Lake Erie Sail
road iorm a big factor in the town. Just
outside of the town proper in what is called
"West Chartiers, was where the writer found
Airs. J. "W. Patton, and during the course
of an interview she said:. "I have been
troubled fornine years, and it first originated
with a cold.
I paid little attention to it at first. But
in later years, however, I caught cold more
easily, and my head began to give me a
great deal of trouble. There would be a
dull, heavy feeling in my forehead not ex
actly a pain, but a distressing feeling that
it is difficult to describe. My nose would
be stopped np, first on one side and then on
the other. X had a raw, uncomfortable feel
ing in my throat, and would always be
hawking and raising and trying to clear it
"There was a constant -ringing and buz
zing sound in my ears. My eyes were af
fected and discharged a watery substance.
They became so weak that J could scarcely
see to read.
Jlfr. J. W. PaUon, West Chartiers.
"Alter a while the trouble seemed to ex
tend to the lower part of my throat and
breast. At times there was a disagreeable
tickling sensation in my throat. Some
thing seemed to be sticking there that I
could not get up or down. When I. would
lie down at night I conld feel the mucus
dropping back into my throat. I slept
poorly anti would get cp in the morning
more tired than when I went to bed.
"I had a dry, hacking cough, which was
always the worst in the morning. At this
time I wonld raise large quantities of mu
cus. Sometimes it would be of a greenish
yellow, and at others, black and lumpy.
Night sweats weakened me terribly, and X
began to lose in weight. My limbs would swell,
and my general health was broken. My appetite
failed me. I could, not eat anything in the
morning. I would feel hungry, but the sight of
foodgaveme a nauseating feeling in my stom
ach. Sharp pains wonld take me in the breast and
side, extending through to the shonlder blades.
The least exertion would put me oat of breath,
and made me feel weak and tired. I tried va
rious doctors and medicines, but got no help.
Some time ago I was advised to see Drs. Cope
land and Blair. 1 placed myself under their
"I conld see from the start that I was steadily
improving: The cough gradually left me and
my head became clear. I can sleep well, and
get up feeling refreshed and have a good appe
tite for all my meals. In fact I have not felt as
well for years as I do now. I owe my restora
tion to Drs. Copeland and Blair, and am glad of
the opportunity to make this statement."
Mrs. Patton lives, as stated, in West Char
tiers, and this interview can be easily verified.
Additional Evidence by Mail.
A short time ago Mr. John "Wright, of
Chicago Junction, O., placed himself under
treatment by mail with Drs. Copeland and
Blair. In writing about his trouble he said:
'Two years ago I was ill with lung fever
and never fully recovered from it. I could
not sleep at night. The mucus would drop
back into mv throat, and X would wake np
feeling as though I was choking. Large
scabs would come from my nostrils whenever
I used my handkerchief. They would often
be streaked with blood. My eyes were
affected and were continually rnnning a
watery substance. X was unable to attend to
my duties, feeling weak and tired all the
time. I had a hacking cough and ringing
noises in my ears. Gradually I noticed I
was becoming deaf. I would have dizzy
spells and my memory failed me. I had
pains in my chest and had no appetite.
"A short time after I commenced treating
with Drs. Copeland & Blair I noticed an
improvement. The dropping in my throat
stopped, my cough and the pains in my
chest left me. I can now sleep and eat well.
The result has been a great surprise to me,
as I had given np all hope 'of ever getting
About the middle of last May Miss Lottie
J. Porker, of 293 Arch street, Meadville,
Pa., placed herself under treatment by mail
with Drs. Copeland & Blair. In stating
her case by letter just previous to the date
above mentioned she complained of terrible
headaches, followed by spells of vomitinr,
which wonld compel her tojie in bed for 21
honrs, after which she wonld be completely
worn out. Sharp pain in the breast, extending
through to the shoulder blade?, and followed
by others in her stomach and side.
On June 9 she wrote. "Your medicine is
doing me good, I do not feel so tired, and my
head has only ached twice, and that was caused
by a fresh cold 1 canght."
On July 2 her letter stated that she was feel
ing very well.
August 28 she wrote: "I feel quite like a
different woman from the one I was when I
commenced yonr treatment."
Some time ago Mr. M. C. Wilson, of Cannons
burg, Pa., placed himself under treatment, by
mail, with Drs; Copeland & Blair. Instating
his case by letter early In July, he complained
of a full, heavy feeling In his head over the
eyes, a bad taste in the mouth, coughing and
raising phlegm, dimness of sight, sharp pains
in tbechesVwitb a tight, pinched feeling and
soreness In the Inngs and a weak and shaky
condition of tbe limbs.
July 25 he wrote: "I am Improving steadily;
feel ever so much better than I have in years."
August 16 be wrote: "I feel like a different be
ing from the one I was when I commenced
yonr treatment, and I am quite willing that a
short statement of what yonr treatment has
