interfered, and the encounter was over.
Arthur waited to see If the l'alleil man
rolilcl rise, and then turned awiiy reel
ing and breathless. For an hour arter
itis hands shook so that he could not
e-o on with his work.
At first he determined to go to Rich
aids, the foreman, and demand the dis
charge of the two tramps, but as he
thought of the explanations necessary,
he Bave It up as Impossible.
He almost wept with shame and de
spair at the thought of her name mixed
In the tumult. He had meant to kill
when he struck, nnil the nervous pros
tration which followed showed him
how far he had roup. H had not hud
a flRht since he was IS years of a?e. and
now everything seemed lost. He went
to see the man just before going to sup
per, and found him In his barracks, sit
ting near a pall of cold water from
v hlc-h he was splashing his head at in
tervals. He looked un as Arthur entered, but
went calmly on with his ministrations;
after a pause he said:
"That was a hell of a lick you cave
mv young feller; brought the blood out
of my ears."
"I meant to kill you," was Arthur's
"I- know you -did. If that damned
Norse hadn't put his foot on that board

ful of water to his swollen and aching
"What did you go to that board for?
Why didn't you stand up like a man?"
"because you were swinging that

well as a blackguard."
The man looked up with a gleam In
his eye: "See 'here, young feller if

doorway he turned and a terrible look
tame into his face. "And more than
that, if you say another word about
her. I'll brain you, sick or well!"
As he talked the old. wild fury re

"One thing more. I don't want you to

In spite of his care the matter came
to the ears of Richards, who laughed
over it and told his wife who stared
"Good land, when did It happen?"
"A couple of days ago."
"Wal, there! I thought there was a
nigger In the fence. Dan had a head
on him like a bushel basket. What
wus it about?"
"Something Tim said about Edith."

"Of course! They pitched In and

Richards, with brutal snrcasm: "as

the finer it all appeared to her. She was
deeply engaged now on Arthur's side
and was very eager to iIj something to
help on in his "sparking." as she culled
It. She seized the first opportunity to

"Yes. 'tis!" the elder woman readily
agreed, "but w hy don't you usk what it

"Ob. don't want to know anything

Sirs. Richards wus approaching the
climax. "It was all about you."

The major had been motioning for
Kdlth to drive on down toward the gate,
and she seized the chance for escape.
Her lips quivered with shame and
unger. It seemed as if she had been
splashed with mire.
"Oh the vulgar creatures," she said
in her throat, her teeth shut tight.
"There. Isn't that a tine held?" asked
the major as he pointed to the cab
bages. "There is a chance for an Amer
ican imitator of Slonet, those purple
brown deep, and those gray-blue
pink pearl tints What's the matter,
my dear?" he broke off to ask, "are you
"No, no. only let's go home." she
said, the? tears coming into her eyes.
He got in hastily. "Sly dear, you are
really ill, what's the matter? Has your
old enemy the headache " He put his
arm about her tenderly.
The major whistled: "Oh ho! that's
Kot around to you, has It? I didn't
know it until yesterday, I was hoping
it wouldn't reach you nt all. I wouldn't
mind it, my dear. It's the shadow
every lovely woman throws no matter

that has pased over the "muck."
Hut I can't even bear that. It seems
like a part of me what do you suppose

your shadow. The talk of such men Is
unimaginable to you."
"You don't mean Sir. Itamsey?"
"No, Mr. Ramsey Is a different sort
of a man. Sir. Ramsey is fine and
clean, and I don't suppose anything
else would have brought him to blows
with those men."
They sat looking straight forward.
"Oh, it's horrible! horrible!"
Her uncle tightened his arm about
her. "I supM)se the knowledge of such
lower deeps must come to you some day,
but don't seek It now: I've told you
all you ought to know."
"Hamsey meant well." be went on,
after a silence, "but such things do
little good, not enough to pay for the
outlay of self-resect. He can't control
their talk when he's out of hearing."
"Rut 1 supose that If a woman was
good 1 mean I didn't know that
men talked in that way about girls
like me. How could they?"
The abyss still fascinated her.
, "My dear, these men are only half-

animals, and all the vices of men. Ram

There was a little silence: they were
nearing the mountains again, and both
raised their eyes to the peaks, deeply
shadowed In tyrlan purple.
. "I know how you feel. I think." the
major went on, "but the best thins to
do is to fofget It. To walk into a gang
of rough men like that is foolish and
dangerous, too, for. the ruffian is gen
erally the the best man physically, I'm
sorry to say."
"It was brave, though, don't you think
so?" she asked.
He looked at her quickly. "Oh, yes.
It was brave, and very youthful."
She smiled a little for the first time.
"I guess I like youth."
"In that case I'll have to promote him
for It." he said with a smile that made
her look away toward the mountains
(To be concluded.)
WITHOUT FIRING A SHOT.
The Vat of Forty Men Who liadarstood
Indian Superltlons-l'nwrlttn History.
From the Pittsburg Times.
In the plonerr (lays, to reach Montana
from Cheyenne. In Wyoming, required
a roundabout Journey that involved a
double crossing of the Rocky moun
tains, with a change of base at Salt
Lake City. The United States govern
ment brought about a better condition
of travel by constructing a trail
through the Oallatin valley along the
course of the Gunpowder river, reach
ing around the base of the mountains In
a curvilinear form, which avoided the
heights of the Rockies. To protect this
route from marauding Indians three
forts were built Reno, Phil Kearney
and C V. Smith. These were garri
soned by I'nited States troops.
In 18ttti the murderous Sioux from the
Yellowstone valley pursued a sangui
nary course through the Oallatin valley
and into Montana. It was marked by
rapine and plunder. They besieged Fort
Reno and killed tuuny of Its garrison.
Including a brother of A. K. SleClure.
They environed Fort Phil Kearney, and
wiped from the face of the earth every
human being whose walls it failed to
protect. They surrounded Kort C K.
Smith, where 200 Union soldiers found
themselves surrounded by mure thun
1.000 death-seeking Indians. Escape
seemed Impossible. A courier got word
of this condition of affairs to len. Han
cock, who was then stationed at Ht.
Paul, and he sent a messenger to the
iruvernor of Sloutanu at Bozeman, call
iug upon him to relieve the besieged
The chief executive of the territory of
Mon'unu at that time was Ureen C'luy
Smith, who. by the way, recently died
in Washington, a Baptist clergymen.
He bud been a member1 of congress
front Kentucky, but President Lincoln
made him territorial governor of Mon
tant. He was seated on the porch of
his residence In Hozemun when Han
cock's message wus handed to him.
To a visitor from the Kast, who was
seated by ills side, and who Is the au
thority for tills nurrative, he said:
"What In the nume of heaven can I
do? j-'ort K. Smith Is 250 miles away.
The country between here and there Is
filled with Sioux Indians. Our militia
force consists of exactly 427 men. Not
a man of them could reach Fort Smith
alive. I am absolutely powerless. How
ever, I will send for Colonel Howie."
At that time Colonel Nell Howies was)
I'nited Stutes marshal for the Territory
of .Montana. He was a typical frontiers
man. He commanded the Montana vol
unteers, and It has been said of htm that
"tleneral Sherman might have been ut

but Colonel Howie, with less than 400
men, protected 100 miles of exposed
frontier but a little distance from the
It was to this man that Governor
Smith addressed himself, handing hint
General Hancock's dispatch, and say
ing: "Colonel, we can't do anything
for those poor devils In Port C. V. Smith.
We haven't enough men, and those we
have couldn't get there. Am I not
"No." said Colonel Howies, quietly,
without any exhibition of excitement
and with the gentle voice of a woman.
"There Is no trouble about that, Gover
nor. We can arrange that matter and
still leave the Montana frontier pro
tected. I will need some picked men
and a good leader for them. I think
Captain McCabe is best fitted for this
undertaking. I will go out and find
Another Blue-Eyed Alan.
SIcCabe was another gentle-voiced
man with blue eyes. He didn't make
much noise. He acted. He said to the
governor: "Oh. yes; It's easy enough.
Hut I'll need forty of the best men I can
select. You can keep the rest of your
volunteer force here." Governor Smith
looked at him In amazement. So did
the visitor from the fort. They both
thought that he was either Insane or a
braggart. Governor Smith said to him:
"How In the name of heaven do you
expect to raise the siege of Fort C. F.
Smith with forty men, when you know
that it is surrounded by more than
1.000 bloodthirsty Indians, and that the
country between here anil there is cov
ered with thousands more of the mur
Said SIcCabe quietly: "Why, gover
nor. It is easy enough. .The Indians
know us, and know that we know them
better than they know themselves. You
folks from the East have an idea that
what you call Indian atrocities are
simply unmeaning exhibitions of bru
tality; that scalping, for instance, is
simply a form of torture; In that you
are mistaken. The Indian believes that
no man ran go to the happy hunting
ground heaven, we call it who has
been deprived of his hair. Their mo
tive In scalping a victim is to cary out
flendinsh hatred to its utmost by pre
venting him from having a happy here
after. My men never kill an Indian
without scalping him, and the Indians
know that. The forty men I will select
for this expedition are unerring In their
aim with the rifle. They can shoot bIx
ten shots In sixteen seconds, and every
ball means a dead Indian, and every
dead Indian means a scalp, and every
scalp means a warrior deprived eter
nally of a chance of ever reaching the
happy hunting grounds. My forty men
will walk from here to Fort C. F. Smith
without firing ashot."
"Incredible!" said Governor Smith.
"True," said McCabe.
What was the result.
Forty men walked the i.V) miles from
liozeman to Fort C. F. Smith. Indians
watched them on every side. By days
their progress was signalled by circling
column of smoke, and by night by tire
from mountain tups. But not a shot
was llreil. When they Kot within sight
of Fort C. F. Smith the 1.000 whooping

ISozeman marched in and escorted the
200 Union soldiers back to the territorial
capital without the loss of a lire. Not
a shot had been fired. Not a scalp had
This is unwritten history.
A NOVELTY IN BICYCLES.
A Front Driving Whetl That Has Been In
trodneed In England,
From the New York Times.
It is in the air that bicycles are go
ing to take on strange phases, and some
of them are already In sight. In Kng
land a front driving wheel of low stat
ure Is much in use. It Is really a de
scendant of the old high bicycle, as It
discards the chain and. uses, as did tnut
big affair, the front wheel for both driv
ing and steering.
Its admirers claim many advantages
for it. Its chief one being Its very light
weight. A twenty-one Inch machine,
geared to a fifty-seven inch frame, with
full roadster equipments, does not
weigh more than twenty-three pounds.
The Bantam, which is the name of
the new wheel. Is easier to learn to
ride. It Is claimed, than the rear driver,
though persons accumstometl to that
would tlnd the change awkward at first.
Although the wheels are so much smal
ler than those of the ordinary safety,
the vibration Is safd to be less percept
ible. Another advantage claimed Is the
small compact gear, which does away
with the usual gear case, and never
needs any attention. - Altogether, the
development of this new wheel will be
1 watched with interest, ' .
THE WOULD OF BUSINESS

The total sales were only 1W.471 shares 01
stocks. The opening was strong on the
announcement from Washington of the
modification In the' bond circular whereby
the time for the payment for the new
bonds is distributed over a period of four
months. This, according to bankers,
means a comparatively easy money mar
ket while the government bond deal Is
being carried out. London came higher
and this had a good effect on prices dur
ing the early tradings. Foreign house,
however, sold at the advance, but not In
important amounts. For that matter,
home operators were not any too anx
ious to take on new commitments In the
railway Hat and speculation dragged
throughout. In the Indutsrials there was
a fair degree of activity, the result of
covering of short contracts. Leather, pre
ferred, was the special card and rose near
ly four points to 6P4 on the revival of
the rumors that the company intended
paying a 8 per cent, cash dividend In Feb
ruary. Tobacco broke from TO to 774
on the announcement of the formation of
a combination of the southern manufac
turers of tobacco. Chicago Oas sold up
to t7 on reports from the west that At
torney General Moloney will decide In fa
vor of the reorganisation committee In
the matter or consolidation. The strength
of the Industrials had a good effect on the
general market, which closed firm in tone.
Net chantces as a rule show fractional
gains In the railway list. The Industrials,
except Tobacco, which lost li per cent.,
gained per cent. .Manhattan closed
to at par, a gain of nearly two points on
the day., The improvement was due en
tirely to' covering of short contracts.

Philadelphia Inquirer: The state
ments of the Reading and Lehigh Val
ley roads make it evident that the
anthracite production in 1895 was larger
than any one had Imagined. The Read
ing company reported an increase of
575.171 tons In the output of Its own
collieries, as compared with 1894. and
the individual operators along its line,
no doubt. Increased also. The- Lehigh
Valley reported an increase in the ton
nage of anthl-aoite coal transported
of 943.211 net tons, equivalent to 841.170
gross tons. It Is pretty certain that
the Lackawanna and Jersey Central
made considerable Increases, and so far
as trade gossip goes all the companies
have made gains, except, perhaps, the
Delaware and Hudson. It would be
safe to estimate that the production
last year was something under 45.000.000
tons, or, say, 3,500,000 tons more than in
the preceding year. It Is Inconceivable
that a year of depression such as 1895
was should have witnessed the largest
consumption of any year on record.
Even though the price was low and the
waste was immense, the actual con
sumption in a year when everyone was
economizing could not have been such
an enormous quantity. The trade renl
ly trenched upon the business of 1896,
In that slocks have been piled up
In consumers' and dealers' hands and
at the storage depots of the producing
companies. Such au excessive product
In one year has always meant a falling
off in the next, and there is no reason
to expect the law will be reversed.

"Well, my dear, you Just get up and put
