NIGHT IN A BUFFALO HIDE.
Queer Imprisonment of a
A party of scouts from the stations
on Bledsoe's Creek, in Sumner County,
was over In Wilson on a tour of obser
vation for Indian signs, says the Port
iuad Oregonlan. As they prepared to
camp late one winter afternoon Capt
Jennings, who waa on of the number,
ti.utvd out to kill a buffalo from a herd
which was near by.
There was a heavy sleet on the
ground, and he found It difficult to get
a good range on account of the noise
of his feet on the crackUng lc, but af
ter following th game for several
miles he at last killed a very large bull.
Fearing that the meat might be In
jured if left until the next morning, he
skiuned the animal and took out the
viscera. By the time be was done night
had tome, and he decided to remain
with his meat instead of seeking camp
in the darkness. So, wrapping the hug
hide around him, flesh side out, he lay
downand slept very comfortably until
morning. On waking be found himself
tightly Imprisoned In the hide, wh!oh
had frozen hard and now resisted all
his efforts to escape.
Hour after hour rolled by In agony to
the captain. He yelled at the top of
his voice for help and strained and
kicked with all his might at the raw
hide inclosure, but it proved stubborn
to the last degree. He doubtless swore
many a bitter oath, for he was of too
Irascible a temperament to submit
tamely. 'He expected hla companions
to search for blm, and they did, but
with a great deal of caution, fearing
that he had been killed by the Indian.
His prolonged absence could be ac-
counted for in no other way. He gave
up all hope of extricating himself as
the hours wore away, but help which
he hnd not thought of was to save hlin
from a death which would have been
extremely mortifying, at the least to
a man who had escaped Indian bullets
and swam Icy rivers like a beaver. We
will let htm relate the Issue In his own
words: "Well, the sun came out In the

unknown in the United States. The
cook Is given so much per day, and
with this amount she will purchase
each morning all the provisions of the

other countries. On a dollar a day a

One day her two nieces ran away
from their home and hid in her house,
hut they did not know her. Their cous
in Magoda came and talked to them.
Then they hid. The woman said:
"I smell something nice. What Is It
my son? Surely I smell fat children."
Then she went to the woods and com
menced to cut down a tree with an ax.
When the first chips fell a bird called
atengu sang: -Ntcngu!
Chips, return to your places!
Chips, return to your places!
Chips, be quick!
The chips then went back to the tree.
This happened three times. 'Hbcn the
woman caught the bird and swallowed
it, but one of the feathers dropped out
f her mouth. She tried to cut down
the tree again, but this time the feather
sang the same song, and the chips flew
back to the tree.
The two nieces had been hiding in the
branches of the tree. They saw three
dogs as big aa oxen. These they knew
belonged to their father, so they called
to the dogs, who'ate up the wicked

An exchange gives a story told by an
Indian agent of the manner In which a
loll averted an Indian war.
Oa one occasion Gen. Crook was try
ing to put a band of Apaches back on
their reservation, but could not catch
them without killing them, and that he
did not wish to do.
One day bis men captured a little In
llan girl and took her to the fort She
was quiet all aay, saying not a word,
but her beady black eyes watched ev
erything. When night came, however,
she broke down and sobbed. Just as any
white child would have done.
The men tried In vain to comfort her,
until the agent had an idea. From an
tflicer's wife be bortowed a pretty doll
:hnt belonged to her little daughter, and
when the Apache was made to under
stand that she could have It her sobs
'eased and she fell asleep. When morn-
tng came the doll was still clasped in
her arms. She played with it ail day,
tnd apparently all thought of getting
back to ber tribe left her.
Several daya passed, and then the lit
tle Apache girl, with the doll still In
ier possession, was sent back to h r
(H-ople. When the child reached the
Indians with the 'pretty doll In ber
.-hubby hands It made a great sensation
ttuong them, and the next day the
mother came with the child to the post
ihe was kindly received and hospitably
rented, and through her the trine was
: rsunded to move back to the reserve

Wheat Land to B Opened.
The alarm about the early exhaustion
or Insufficiency of the world's wheat
supply may be somewhat abated by the
facts In connection with an application
for charter of a new Canadian railroad.
The title of the proposed road Is the
Quebec and Lake Huron, and Its route
Is from the mouth of French River, on
Georgian Bay, across the Ottawa at
Mattana and the St Maurice at
Grandes Plies, to Quebec The distance
is 440 miles, or 135 miles shorter than
from Parry Sound. Included In the
line la a great plateau, embracing
3,000,000 acres of forest and farming
lands, now out of reach of railroads,
and said to be capable of easily sup
porting a population of 500,000.
The region through which the new
road will pass Is well adapted to wheat
growing, and the plan Includes great
grain elevators for the accommodation
of this resource. Incidentally the
project calls attention to the fact that
Canada has other large tracts of unde
veloped territory adapted to the grow
ing spring wheal.' This area, added to
that about to be opened by the Trans
Siberian Railroad, will certainly post
pone for some years the shortage pre
dicted by Sir WUllam Crookee. Mean
time the wheat farmer Is not receiving
a price for bis product Indicative of any
popular fear or speculative belief In the

what was wrong the front door flew

He therefore obtained the famous cor

editor drew his pen through the words,

haste he made the line lower than he

thought that the sentence was under

sequence was that It appeared la Truth

rage over an accusation made with

his noonday lunch on th shady side
of a high board fanes, when a tramp
sidled up and sat down oa the end of a

"I was Just thinking,'' he went on,
"what a wonderful country this Is of
"Yes, and It'll be a heap sight won
derf uller when we get through expand
ing it" suggested the workingman.
"No doubt of that" admitted the
tramp. ' "But think of Its extent and
wealth, now. Why, did It ever strike
you that we have under our star-spangled
fence, as it were, two thousand
million acres of land, and our wealth is
equal to seventy-five thousand mlll.ons
of dollars? Think of those stupendous
figures, sir; and we are only as yet in
our Infancy the youngest nation of
any Importance on the globe."
"It's a loo-too," was the strongest
thing the workingman could say, but
he said It fervently.
"Yes," continued the tramp, "and
think 'that for those seventy-five thou
sand millions of dollars there could be
furnished to our people one billion five
hundred thousand million pies as big
as that one you have Just got away
with, and yet I haven't stuck a tooth
into a piece of pie In six months. I
haven't help me. Dick Robinson."
The man In overalls looked at him
"Well, you ought to be In better
luck," he said. "I eat one like It every
day. So long." And he went back to
work, leaving the tramp on the end of
the stick of timber still thinking.

to the man across the table, "that you

young fellow on a train between Rich

up quite an acquaintance. He told me
his name was Tolllver Oliver Tolliver

spelled bis name ns did the famous

and seemed to be proud of it I was
rather proud to be friendly with one of
the name myself, and made myself
extra agreeable. When he left me at a
way station and told me good-bye lie
tendered me his card and told me he
hoped I vaould not forget him. I didn't
look at the card till he had gone, and,
would you believe It the young fellow
had his name spelled to match, as it
were, and It appeared thus: 'Mr. Alla

opinion was getting Oliver Tolliver
down pretty fine.- Don't you think so,
