Nay, i more, It In ntnrvelous, miraculous! Why, nn hun dred burros could not draw bo great n loadl No, not oven nn hundred of the best horses ot Las Dellclasl Come, my friend, let tis In- rltuitlj depart. Of truth, It Is the work of the Evil One himself, nd to remain longer would bo but to endanerr the welfare of our souls. Let us nver have railroads In our Mexico!" Don Enrique was a nrovlnclnl Mexi can gentleman who had Journeyed In that good, old fashioned conveyance, a rattle-trap of a dlHem-la, from his far away rancho to the frontier town of Paso del Norte, where be hail boon persuaded, not a little against his will, to accompany a friend to Kl I'aso, on (he Texas side of the Hlo Grande, there to view the wonders being wrought by the Americans. The first tallroad to enter El Paso had Just been completed, and ho saw for the first time In his life that wonderful machine, a steam loco motive. Its strange noises filled hint wlbh alarm! the foul smoke uourlmr from its stack almoit straimled him; and, awe-stricken by Its miraculous strength, he finally gave expression to his emotions, as shown above. 1 It turned a deaf ear 'to the laughing re monstrances of his friend, meanwhile piously crossing lilmself, and Insisted upon immediately returning to t'.e Mexican side of the river; there, be ,'clt, they would be safe from the naliirnant iniluence of the diabolical nacblne. And, upon arriving in Puso :lel Norte, he lost no time In starling back home, but R was with a heavy heart; he was oppressed with the fear that he had committed a heinous sin. A few months later he was Informed that a concession for the construction of a railroad In Mexico had been grant ed an American company, whereupon ho held up his hands in sueecriless horror. Regaining use of his tongue, be denounced the impious government of hla country In terms both vigorous and picturesque, but that accomplished nothing. And when the ingineets wlio located the line of the road entered the bounds of Las Dellclas be used all the diplomacy at his command to turn them aside, but to no effect, for the road was surveyed to pass within a mile, of his house. In due time the graders came, a motley crowd of rude, rough men who laughed dn Iris face, and with many an outbuist of impotent rage he saw them tear an ugly trench across the breadth of Las Dellcias. Then came the tracklnyers, and he raved and stormed like one beside himself as tho lines offlfcllterlng rails ciept up to and past his home; and he ciossed himself In pious horror at sight of the tele graph wires. He was not in the lean mollified when the railroad company paid him a good, lound sum for its right-of-way across his nroperty, and rejected with a superb gesture or scnrn the annual pass that was also tender ed him. "No, no, senor!" be exclaimed, indig nantly; "I was powerless to pi event this dccocratlon of my beloved coun try, but I did what I could. As yet the Infamous government has not en acted laws compelling mo to patron! your railroad, and until that be done neither X, nor my family, nor yet my servants, shall imperil their souls by gciliip near your trains. Take back the pass to those who sent it. and loll them that 1 Knrlciuc del Tmo, do ex ecrate it and thpm," Don Knriciue's opposition gave the oilicir.ls of the road but little concern; bis was only one ol many such cases, nevertheless it was decided to propi tutu him by establishing .1 station eon vehlent to his usp, and ,i neat fraino building was erected not far from his bouse. "When the lime arrived to se lect u man to have charge of this sta tion. Hob Kvans, a man who was a thorough railroader and with a repu tation for coolness and "nerve." but who was utterly lacking in respect for Mexicans, wiiii chosen. Jle was not tile man to make ovortuies of friend ship to Don Knriquo, most decidedly not and Don Enrique would have re pelled such overtures had they been made. Weeks passed, with each seem ing to be Insensible of the other's ox-Isten-e; but there were ngeneles at work that were destined soon to break down the barriers between them. s One morning a vaqueio galloped madly to the hacienda, bringing Don Enilque the teirlfylng news that a large war party of Apache Indians had swept down from the neighboring mountains, killing and binning, and were making for the hacienda. Many years had passed since the Indians had raided that country, and so Don En rique was utterly unprepared to mcot them. "God of my soul, what am T to do?" he gionned. "We are too few to re sist them. We must My, but where? Oh, "'my wife, my daughter! Truly It Is an evil day that has come upon us. W,o muKflly from Las Dellclas, but whero can. wee find safety? There niv no soldiers nearer than Chihuahua, and of truj;h the Indians would overtake us liofoiWiwov-eould go so far." And the poor imin vrung his hands In despair. "YoiQJcrp"tbo railway. Don Kn riquo," the- vnuuero answered, "Let us hum" to tho stntlon; a train may come at any moment, and nil tho Apacliesbf 'the Sletrn Madre could not overtake that, it moves with such gre.at swfftlcss.Vi "The railway Is a device of Suture for entrdpplng our souls," Don En- rlquD sternly replied. "And aro not the Apaches Satan's own Impi?" tho vaquero lejolned, with respectful persistence. Don Knriquo was loath to surrender his cherished nollcy of non-intercourse with the railroad, but his wife and daughter promptly championed tho vnquoio's suggestion, nnd when two women beset one poor man, that mnn has but one course to follow, Ho yield ed, anil Ininieillatoly his household be gan Up night. Pell-mell, edirleKlng, and gesticulating, (hey poured into tho station, surprising Evans into speech lessness; and Don Enrique, ills sim ple mind agitated no less by his fear of the clicking telegraph Instruments than by his blood-curdling horrors of nn ApaohB i-afyl, tfempted,to explain tho cause of their -pomliig.! He spoke Spanish, the only language he knew, nnd his excitement' cauied his words to pour out In nn unbroken stream that Mrs, wholly! unlntelllglule to Ev iu)s, M-hcmcould i understand Spanish oiJy whwlt wns bpoken slowly and wth' careful enunciation, Mexicans nlwaya amused Evans when they did not dlHgimt him. Their theatrical display of emotion, their ef fusiveness, startling gesticulation, nnd comical grimaces, when excited, woro to him all thnt the nntlcs of a cage of monkeys arc to the smnll hoy. In puzzled amusement he sat staring nt Don Lnrlque, letting him talk away until exhausted, and then coolly in formed him that he had failed to catch bin meaning. Don Enrique gasped with despair; what could he do to arouse this thick headed American, he wondered. A happy thought occurred to him; grnsp Ing Evans by the arm, he dragged him to the window. "Mlra, Nsennr," he filed, printing to the west, where u numlitr of slender columns of smoko were rising, "indlos! Apnchcs! Muchos, niuchos'" Evans was a frontiersman, nnd his mind instantly took In the sltuntlon. With a bound he t eached his telegraph Institnnoiit nnd begun calling Chihua hua, while Don Enrique drew back fram the devilish machinery ns far as he could. The Chihuahua otTIco was pionipt to "espond, nnd the next mo ment an urgent call for roldlers went leaping along the wire-. There was tin mediate excitement In Chihuahua; the fussy switch-engine that was stand ing for tha moment Idly beside tho telegraph ofloe awoke with a snort, and darted to tho end of the yard, wheie It began hastily sorting out coaches. In hot haste a messenger vas dispatched to the barracks: brentbbrs he rushed Into the office of the cornmandante, and the next minute thpip aiose nn angry snarling of dmms and a loud, excited calling of bugles. Then came a. pattering of many sndaled feet and the rattle and jingle of nrms, a hasty calling of rolls and counting of fours, followed by sharp, culck-spoken words of com mand, nnd a r-olnmn of swarthy, uni formed riPii emerged from the bar racks. Again a sharp command, and they spiang forward nt the double quick, lacing to the railroad station, where a train was now In rendlnes'i for them. Having seen tht soldiers safely aboard, the conductor went Into the telegraph oftice, where he remained :i few moments; when be came out again he carried In bis, hand a crum pled bit of paper, upon which appeared the words, "ltun regardless." HI-- band shot upward In a ftgn.il to tl waiting engineer, and, with clangn bell and the Ills., of escaping stem. the train moved out. Anxiously the refugees at Las Dell clas scanned the western horizon. In that direction nn almost level plain stretched away mile upon mile to where it met a range of mountain.-'! that were velvety and blue with dis tance. Midway in this plain a cloud of dust arose, grew larger with every moment, and diew r.ipldly nearer. Now a dense roll of black smoke auoeared, and ascended straight upward to lone Itself In the blue ol the sky. and an angry glare of llame leaped upward be neath It. The Apaches weie oomlns In a whirlwind of death and destruc tion. "A Dlos, they are but little mo;v than three leagues away!" groaned Don Enrique. "What shall wo do?" "No need for wony, senor," returned Kvans, who was siting with one ear over his telegraph instruments; and with exasperating coolness he struck a ina'lch and lit his pipe. "No need for worry?" gasped Don Enrique. "Great God, man, thou art crazed with fear!" Hut Evans did not reply, did not hear; he was entirely absorbed by what be telegraph was saying. Present ly a look of satisfaction shone in his face, and he made a hasty mental cal culation: "Indians ten miles away, an' comin' ton miles nn hour; soldiers s'x ly miles away, an' 'ussin' Jimmy John son n-pullln' 'em: result, some Indians to bury In 'bout an hour If Jimmy st.iy on th'i rails hot times for us if he don't." The cloud of dust kept rolling near er, nnd a group of tiny black specks came Into view at Its base specks that Increased In number with every moment, and that grew larger, tool: form, and becamo galloping Apaches. Nearer, nearer they came, and the sobbing, praying, hysterical Mexicans relinquished all hope of mortal aid; but not so with Evans, Leaning far out of his window, he was watching th2 track, and, presently, fur away where the two lines of gleaming rails seemed to unite In one. ho caught sight of an other speck a speck that was sending aloft a pluino of Inky-black smoke. "Fireman's workln' like th devil," hi mused, "an' Jimmy's got her wide open, comln' down u one-per-cent, grade, too, Ain't he a bird?" Now he looked at the Indians, and a look of concern stole into his face. They were getting dangerously near. Going to his desk, he took out nnd cocked his re volver. It held six loads, one for each of the women If tho worst should come far better death for them than cau Uiro by the Apache, he thought. Glune Ing at these poor creatures, who weio huddling together In a corner of tho room, ho noticed for tho first time that ono of them, a. young woman whom ho took to be Don Enrique's daughter, was possessed of more than average beauty, and he trembled with the thought that his might be the hand that must end her life. The Apaches were within rifle-range of tho station, and tho rapid pounding of their horses' hoofs was distinctly. heard, when tho rails ftegan to vibrato and hum beneath swiftly turning wheels. The next minute, with a deaf ening roar of escaping steam, and with every wheel sliding and sending show ers of sparks from the rails, tho train bearing the soldiers swept up to tha station and came to a stop. Stentorian commands rang out, followed Instantly by a rattling and crackling of locks, unit a thunderous volley crashed from the ear windows. Tho surprise of the Apaches was complete; several of their number reeled and almost fell from their ponies. A whoop and a wave of their leuder's hand sent them Hying back towards the mountains, and the sol diers, quickly pouring from tho train, started in hopeless pursuit of t-heiii. Don Enrique was as one who sees a vision so sudden a transition from dumb despair to u sense of safety stu pefied him. With round, wide-open eyes, he stared a few minutes ut tho fleeing Indians, at the dusty soldiers above whose heads fluttered the Hug of his country, and then, in a sudden transport of joy, rushed to Evans and clasped him in his arms, f The "Raglan" Overcoat The judgment of men who areused to wearing custom made clothes has been passed on this new style of Overcoat "The Raglan." It's a swell coat when made and tailored right. The "Raglan" that we have sold to many good dressers in this city is a fashionable garment with that style and grace which only ap pears in the Custom Tailor's paH terns. Every man who has seen them and tried one on has compli mented us on the new ideas we have put into this coat, that distin guishes it from the many inferior imitations now being shown in this city. The cloth is exclusive and cannot be found in the imitation garment, but above all the tailoring and design shows the touches of expert men.

"Nay, thou art more than friend sav ioursaviour of my pioperty of my family of all that I hold dear! Thou hast " "Oh, hello! Say, drop it! Turn me loose, you old fool! D n you, quit kiss in' me," sputtered Evans, speaking English, as was natural under such circumstances. " performed a miracle, thou and thy railroad, and thy telegraph!" Don Enrique went on, not noticing this interruption, nnd holding tight to Evans, who was snuggling with all his stiength to get away. Evans gave up, and, to escape far the osculation, pushed forward his head on the Mexican's shoulder; bis face was flushed with shame, and his eyes were lolling ludicrously from side to side, fairly speaking the disgust he felt. " "Ay de ml! 1 did oppose the build ing of thy railroad! I thought it the work of the devil, and I denounced tho government for permitting it. But -I was wrong I, Enrique del Toro, do admit that I was wrong, nnd hence forth I nm the friend of railroads of the telegraph, also. It has been the means of saving our lives, and there fore can not be harmful to our souls, T am the friend of thy railroad, I re peat, and I will now accept the pass I once did refuse. Come to my house, my friend, It is thine; all that I pos sess Is thine at thy pleasure, Ho was trying to kiss Evnns again, when a voice that shook with laugh ter called from the window: "Sny, Evans, what's the matter with the good-looking daughter? I'd rather kiss her than the eld man I'll take her If you'll let me get Into the game." "D n you an' th' daughter, too!" Evans leturned, wrnthfully, glancing at the grimy face of "Cussln" Jimmy, which was framed In the window, and with a mighty effort ho wrenched him self free and ran out of the room. A year passed, and one day Evans hailed the engineer on a train that was slowing into Las Dellclas: "Ray, Jim my," ho called, "do you remember th' little Mexican girl you saw out here last year th' time you pulled th' ex tra, brlngln' soldiers?" "The ono that was lonkln' so lone some while you were huggln' tho old man?" answered Jimmy. "Why, yes; what's become of her?" "She doesn't got lonesome that way any more," Evans replied, grinning sheepishly. "Slip on your best clothes an' dead-head out here tomoriow, nnd you'll see her become Mrs, Evans."

Dun & Co.'s Weekly Iteview of Trade tomor iow will sny: Prices of commodities advanced al most without exception and all the changes In manufactured goods are In the direction of firmer quotations. Scarcity of labor gives manufactures In the middle states great concern. Activity at iron and stool mills stead ily increase, and there Is nn equally uniform advance In quotations. The gain has been more general this week than at any previous time this season, pig Iron moving up twenty-five cents a ton and corresponding gains appear ing In bars, billets, plates nnd struc tural materials generally. Instead of the recent agitation for cheaper steel rails, there Is now talk of an advance, to $28, owing to the further rise In steel billets, Orders come forward In the best volume since last spring, when there was severe Inflation of prices, and requests for quick delivery are general. The report of pig Iron De duction on November i, 'by the Iron Age, shows a weekly capacity of only 2l!i,30l tons, the smallest since Septem ber, 1898, but the reduction ot 29,000 tons from October 1 from furnace stocks Is most encouraging. These figures, with the activity In all branches of the In dustry, Indicute that there will be no further reduction In output, but tho De cember stntement will probably show moro than 200 furnaces In. blast. Hoot nnd shoo manufacturers are still unable to secure any advance In quota tions, although they" aro attempting to raise lists 2Y cents, I.ocal Jobbers aro well supplied, but more seasonable weather has stimulated retuil trade. Textile Industries are rather quiet, al though heavyweight goods move more freely with the lower temperature. A temporary flurry In tho wheat mar ket on Monday took the December op tion above eighty cents. It was re ported that Wall street operators were turning attention to grain, Publica tion ot the usunl weekly statistics had a depressing effect, however, purtlcu liuly tho enormous exports from Itus sa, which were a contradiction of oailler statements that tho crop was short In northern Europe. Cotton rose slightly, Exports to Great Britain con tinue heavy at prices two cents higher than a year ngo. Failures for tho week were 217 In tho United States against 21U last year, and 33 In Canada against 20 last year. WOMEN'S AUXILIARY. n.v Hxclmhe Wire from Th AssocUUd l'ru. Willej-llano, Nov. 18.

Considerably Shaken Up on the Eve of Their Game with U. of P. Uy i:cliiMe Wire from The Associated Pre. Philadelphia, Nov. 10. The Univer sity of Pennsylvania foot ball tnm took its last practice this afternoon in prepartion for the annual contest with the Carlisle Indians on Franklin field tomorrow. The eleven men and substitutes are In fit condition for tho bard gama which they expect the Red Men to put up. Pennsylvania was badly beaten by the Indians last year and the I!ed and Blue hopes to n trleve the defeat by n handsome score. The practice this afternoon was of a light order, no risk being taken to have any of the playeis laid up from injuries, The Indians were to have arrived here at 10.30 o'clock tonight, but the tiain on which they were traveling was partially wrecked nt Mechanlcs burg by running into the rear end of n freight train, and the engineer and fireman were killed. The Redskins were considerably shaken up by the shock of tho collision, but none of tlif-m were hurt. Conch Wnrner de cided to return to Carlisle, Instead of having his men travel sill night in day coaches. Coach Wnrner telegraphed that the team will leave Carlisle early tomorrow morning and will arrive here about noon. COUNCILS RECEDE. Jr. Order United American Mechan ics Affected by Court Decision.

Philadelphia, Nov. 1C Consequent on the decision of the Supreme court sus taining the position of the National council of tho Junior Order United American Mechanics, the 273 Ipsurgent Stato councils have receded from their position in lef using to pay te per capita tax. The limit of time set by tho loyal state council ended today, and It Is reported that over 100 recalcitrant lodges havo contributed their sharo of this tax. In the face ot this decision, and In spite of the movement which has set In to le-JJln the loyalists, a number of the state bodies have entirely with drawn from the national organization. These lodges havo adopted the name of "I.oyal American Mechanics," This new organization had Its begin ning at Lebanon, when Council No. 74S surrendered Its charter and reorsun Ized under tho now name.
