THE COMPACT FAITHFULLY KEPT.
A Story of William Henry Harrison Mid
Dr. John Scott.
From the fact that the maiden name of
the late wife of President Harrison was
Scott, and that that name has been a Chris
tian one in the Harrison family for three
generations, there is a popular impression
that the president aud Mrs. Harrison were
distantly connected by tiesof blood as well
ns by the closer relationship of man and
wife. Though ft natural conclusion, this
belief is incorrect. There having been no
consanguinity between President and Mrs.
Harrison, the way in which the Scott
name came to be so freely used as a Chris
tian name in the Harrison family is for
more than one reason of interest.
The lute Mrs. Harrison was a lineal de
scendant of Robert Scott, a member of the
Scottish parliament before the union of
the crowns. This Robert Scott was an old
Covenanted hero, who lived in the latter
part of the Sixteenth century, and fought
at the battle of Bothanee llriggs for the
covenant and the crown. He opposed the
union of the crowns during the reign of
Queen Anne, because of the ignoring of the
Scottish crown and name in the then new
parliament of Great Britain. For this,
with others deemed guilty of the same of
fense, he was immured in the Tower ot
London under penalty of losing his head,
but was released by an amnesty of George
I, who was brought over from Hanover to
take the throne by virtue of being a de
scendant of the Stuarts. After Robert
Scott's release, in disgust with his native
country, in company of a friend, the Earl
of Belhaven, he emigrated to the north o(
Ireland, and from there, in 1?25, his oldest
son, John, came to America aud became
the founder of the family in this country.
In t he Revolutionary war the Pennsylva
nia Scotts, as might have been expected
from their lineage, were prominently iden
lilied with the struggle for independence,
and it was no less on account of distin
guished services on the part of her ances
try than because she was the wife of the
president of the United States that the late
Mrs. Harrison was elected first president
of tho Society of the Daughters of the
After the independence of the colonies
was assured, three brothers of the Penn
sylvania Scotts, seeking their fortunes in
the then fur southwest, settled in Ken'
tucky. One of these brothers was Dr. John
Scott, between whom and William Henry
Harrison, afterward ninth president of the
United States, a romantic friendship a
love passing that of brothers existed. In
their youth, and prior to the marriage of
either, they had made a compact that their
loyalty to each other should be perpetuated
lu their offspring that the eldest son of
William Henry Harrison should be named
Scott, and that the eldest son of John Scott
should be named Harrison.
The compact was faithfully observed.
William Henry Harrison married a daugh
ter of John Cleves Symmcs, and his oldest
sou was duly called Scott Harrison, and
his son was named Benjamin Harrison.
John Scott also met his matrimonial fate,
and when he became the father of a son
the child was named Harrison, and was in
his day one of the earlier eminent physi
cians of Illinois.
It seems a curious circumstance that a
member of the family from whom many
years afterward aud many miles distant
from its original dwelling place Benjamin
Harrison chose a wife should have been in
strumental in introducing into his family
as a Christian name her surname of Scott.
Lord Itoaebery's Farm.
The following particulars regarding Lord
Rosebery's farm at Dalmeny, which lies in
close proximity to the Forth bridge, are ol
especial interest. On the home farm,
which extends to about 1,400 acres, excel
lent cottages, to which substantial gardens
are attached, have been provided for the
married plowmen, and a comfortable bothy
has been erected for the unmarried men,
It comprises a large dining room fitted up
with cooking stove and hot and cold wa
ter, and for every occupaut a separate bed
room is provided. Lavatory accommoda
tion of the most approved description is
also furnished, and a woman servant is
deputed to keep the place tidy and have
the kettle boiling for the men when they
return from the "yoke."
Lord Roseliery provides his plowmen
with the daily and all the leading agricul
tural papers. The wages for good and
eflicient men on the Dalmeny farm are one
pound per week. When a plowman or
other laborer has spent tlie best part of his
life in service at Dalmeny and becomes
unfit tor the hard and steady work of
driving a pair of horses an easier kind of
work is found for him, and be is kept on
at a fair wage, nominally as a jobber, but
practically as a pensioner. Even the wid
ows of old and faithful servants are most
kindly treated, aud some comfortable bil
let is always found for any ono who has a
just claim on bis lordship s consideration,

Those who came into contact with the
late General Boulauger will remember his
perky little page Joseph, and his astonish
ing repartees. He used to order visitors
about with an Insolence above his tender
years, and occepted every form of homage
as a matter of course, holding his head
erect While prominent visitors stood with
their hats oil and bowing to the little imp.
Visitors knew that to win his favor was
almost winning that of his master, and
groveled before him. This sort of life in
capacitated Joseph for any domestic serv
ice after the general's death. He has now
given up town life and has returned to
live with his mother at Etamps. Joseph,
who is now sixteen, remembers his con
nection with General Boulauger as a vision
of glory already fading in the distance.
That there is a mysterious association in
some minds between tho workings of the
different perceptive faculties is not a new
observation. In not a few instances the
poet's eye has anticipated lit its sweep the
revelations of the lens of science. The
coming man may yet be able to hear a
September landscape, with all its changing
tints of beauty, its plainly as the rudimen
tary man now on earth hears the thunder
or the rushing of' the autumn winds. In
that age yet to bo evolvod the pioneer labors
of timber will not fail to be treasured up
and honored as contributions to the de
velopment and well being of humanity.''

WHERE ME IS PLENTIFUL
Some famous Huntinij Grounds Lie
est of the Buj Muddy.
HOW DE MORES KILLED BEAR
Rare Sport for the Adventurous Is to at
Found in the Cotcau Hills and tha
Had Lands-Feathered an.
Hairy Gumo Guloro.
The most accessible and attractive hunt
ing grounds in the United States are the
famous Coteaus and Bad Lands. Duck and
prairie chickens are found in the greatest
numbers on the outer edge of civilization,
where they can feed in comparative secur
ity in the wheat fields.
The Coteaus are a range of hills, or rathei
a regiou of hills, occupying a strip of coun
try as large as the state of Massachusetts,
on the east side of the Missouri river. The
settlement there is scant, owing to the
hilly nature of the territory. There are in
numerable small lakes and meadows and
patches of timber. It is a safe feeding
ground for deer and the most desirable
kind of a resting place for duok aud geese.
The big wheat fields of Dickey, La Moure,
Kidder and Wells counties extend to the
foot of the Coteaus and afford convenient
food for the myriads of prairie chickena
which fatten there.
When the Cotenus are first entered a
scene of desolation forces itself upon the
vision, but this is soon relieved by a mag
nificent perspective of water and landscape.
The mountains are singularly abrupt. Val
leys which at tht season are luxuriant
with vegetation and fragrant with bloom
ing flowers wind among the bills. Lovely
fresh water, with surface smooth as glass,
shimmers in the sunlight. Myriads of birdi
awuken the echoes with melodious war
tiling. Small game of various kinds is al
most constantly in sight. The hunter can
travel for miles without detecting the first
sign of civilization. The name Coteau, oi
Coteaux, means the hills of the Dakotas,
or of the Sioux (Cutthroat) Indians.
Deer, antelope, coyotes, badgers and
foxes disport by the waters of those moun
tain lakes and offer excellent sport to nim
rods who seek for it in that direction,
There are still a great many beaver on the
creeks which flow from the hills into the
Missouri or the James. This is the prairie
chicken season and hunting parties are
thick along tha foot of the hills. There ii
simply no limit to the game and the fun.
After a month of duck and chicken shoot
ing the sportsmen begin deer stalking In
the Coteaus. There are no swamps ot
marshes to make travel wearisome and
slow. There is no timber to beguile aud
retard the hunter. A person gets over tht
hills and bard prairie at a rapid pace, and
the opportunity to come upon the deei
feeding in the big meadows is excellent.
In the Missouri bottoms north of Bis
marck there is big game, and the bunting
there is carried on successfully in the win
ter months. There is less chance of getting
lost along the Missouri than in the Coteaui
and Bad Lands. The river country is tim
bered, and on that account is made the
winter quarters of large game. While the
stalking is comparatively safe, it is hard
work in that region, and is not followed to
any great extent by visiting sportsmen
after the stormy season comes on. Farm
ers living along the Missouri get a good
many deer every winter, but hunters can
do better along in October and November.
Rattlesnakes are thick in the river bot
toms during the warm weather, but after
the sharp frosts of October have set In they
aro seldom seen and do little harm. A
great advantage to sportsmen anywhere
east of the Missouri is that there are no
rattlesnakes. Farmers and old frontiers'
men do well in the Missouri country dur
ing the winter, sometimes making big
money out of deer, but tenderfeet will be
more comfortable out of there after the 1st
One of the most interesting places on
earth, as well as a line hunting ground foi
large game, is the Bad Lands. For wild
and weird scenery, for curious formations
and for opportunities to get lost the Bud
Lands beat the world. It is incomparable
so far as the northern frontier is concerned
for a wild outdoor life. There are some
bu ffalo, but more bear. Dear are common.
There are some mountain sheep, an occa
sional wildcat, any number of wolves and
a variety of feathered game. There are
the wildest kinds of canyons to traverse
and the steepest kiud of hills to climb. No
man can pass a week in the Bad Lands
without having adventures to relate.
Hunting in that region is rough and wild
enough to satisfy the most romantic turn
of mind. If a fellow wants to test his
nerve be can tackle a cinnamon bear or
panther. It is a fact that the Marquis de
Mores killed a cinnamon there single band
ed and alone, after lying out all night to
find the brute. Tho marquis used only a
bunting knife, but a gun that will throw
an ounce bullet three-quarters of a mile is
much safer. As a uerve tester, however,
De Mores took the proper course.
' A bunting part y going to the Bad Lands
needs to leave the railroad at Medora or
Glendive, and drive or tramp twenty or
thirty miles. Then they will get clear of
the cattle ranches and find good sport. De
cember hunting tours for deer are becom
ing popular. A little Bnow is an advan
tage, and it is seldom as deep in that sec
tion as it is cast of the Missouri, or any
where in the Mi&uouri bottoms.
i Wisconsin aud Minnesota hunters who
are accustomed to spending a week or two
with an expensive outfit in shooting half a
dozen or a dozen mullards may think they
are having fun, but they do not know whut
sport is. Duck are slaughtered by the
hundred in this country. Colorado Sun,
In his latest book Mr. W. Hudson cor

(pampas this powerful animal never attacks
man except in self defense, and that even
an unprotected child may sleep on the
plaiu in security. Mr. T. B. Comstock, ot
Tucson, A. T., confirms the statement,
adding that many other animals ot reputed
ferocity inoludin.i the grizzly and cinna
mon bears interfere with man only under
strong provocation. He finds the same to
be true of venomous reptiles and insects
as the rattlesnake, "gila monster," turan
tula, scorpion, etc. which bite only when
escape seems to be impossible. Even the
Brazilian boa constrictor does not seek hu
man victims, and natives about tropical
rivers declare that the alligator harms
only drunken men. Ohio State Journal.

There are numbers of good things in tbe
fifth volume of Moltke's memoirs. It is
told, for instance, that as the king's birth
days successively approached, there used
to be bets among tlje officers and the gen
eral staff as to how many words Moltke
would use in proposing the toast of the
day. Some backed a nine word speech,
others put their money on eight words.
Moltke's habit was to say, "To the health
of bis majesty, emperor and king," or, "To
bis imperial majesty's health." In 1881 an
oyster breakfast was staked on tbe mar
shal's not using more than nine words.
But because he began with the word
"Gentlemen" the bet was lost. The loser
comforted himself by saying, "He'sagjng.
