V I 31 4 Toronto Out. I
FOU the flt-Ht time In its lilotory, tlie
inhabitants of tbe quiet tittle vlllttee
oF Elmdale bad been shocked by the
discovery of a great crime iu their
Beth Drlscoll a well-known citizen
was found, at early dawn, lying dead in
bis own garden. A ghastly bullet
wound in the back of bis bead left no
room to question the cause of his death ;
and any suspicion of suicide was rebut
ted, as well by the position of the wound
as by the discovery of foot-prints lead
ing back and forth from near the body
to tbe garden wall, at a point where tbe
latter bore evident marks of having
once been scaled.
But tbe crowning evidence was that
of a pistol recently discharged, lying
near the base of the wall where the
murderer bad clambered over. It was
picked up by Jonas Wenlock, Dr. Drls
coll's nephew, who gave a start of sur
pris at the sight. " I know who owns
this weapon I" he exclaimed.
" Who V who V" questioned a dozen
" Volney Kendall," be answered.
Had a thunder clap fallen upon the
listeners the effect would not have been
more startling. Tbe young man whose
name bad just been uttered was the last
person to be suspected of an atrocious
crime. At the first Instance the very
thought was repelled with abhorrence ;
but at the second came a strange revo
lution. It was remembered that Volney
Kendall had been an earnest suitor for
the hand of Kate Dunseth, Mr. Drls
coll 's ward, aud had received from tbe
haughty guardian a superclllious rebuff
which he bad bitterly resented. Here
was a motive for the deed wilcb coupled
with tbe circumstances of the pistol,
awakened conviction in the very minds
where, a moment before, the slightest
shade of suspicion had been indignantly
Within an hour young Kendall, pale
and agitated, was dragged a prisoner to
the scene of the tragedy where fresh
evidence was speedily added to that
already accumulated. His shoes were
found exactly to fit the tracks In
the garden, even to tbe print of the
He acknowledged to the ownership of
the pistol, but declined all explanation
of its presence at the place where it had
been found,or of bis whereabouts on the
None longer doubted the prisoner's
guilt and be was placed In close confine
ment to wait the coroner's Inquest.
Next day I was retained for the ac
cused ; but from an interview with him
permitted by the jailer, I came away
without a shadow of hope ; for,although
be asserted his innocence, be persisted
in maintaining silence on points the
clearing up of which were vital to his
1'he inquest was held at the bouse of
the deceased. The facts already stated
were laid before the jury ; but when
the prisoner was questioned, save ac
knowledging the ownership of the
pistol, and denying all knowledge of tbe
murder, he declined to answer.
Once he looked appealingly to Kate
Dunseth, who was present, summoned
as a witness with the rest of the house
hold. She met bis look with a tearful
bewildered gaze, and be turned away
and bowed hit bead in silence.
I drew from Jonas Wenlock, whom I
was permitted to cross-examine, that be
bad a heavy insurance on his uncle's
life, and from another witness who had
under taken the duty of investigating
the condition of Mr. Drlsco.U's affairs,
that they were in a very embarrassed
state. But the Coroner cut me short :
"It is hardly proper Mr. Wilson,lnthe
face of the evidence, to insinuate either
that Mr. Driscoll committed suicide, or
that la nephew murdered him."
All the witnesses had been examined
but the gray-haired doctor who bad
made the autopsy, and who now took
bis stand. He was one of your grave
taciturn men, who keep their own coun
sel till the fitting time comes to speak.
" Tell us, Doctor," continued the cor
oner, after a few preliminary questions
" what, if any, wounds did you discover
on the person of tbe deceased V"
With minute precision tbe witness
described the bullet wound in the head
giving the diameter and depth to the
" In your opinion, was the wound the
cause of death V
" It was not," was the answer, in a
tone whose calmness and composure
were not in the least ruffled by the mur
mur of astonishment which greeted the
" Pray explain," requested the coroner
with Ill-concealed surprise.
" There were no signs," replied the
doctor, preserving the same quiet man
ner, "of either external or internal hem
orrhage, which would have necessarily
followed the eeverence of the blood
vessels by tbe passage of the bullet, had
tbe man then been alive. When the
shot. was fired he was already dead."
To what, then do you attribute Mr.
Drlscoll's death !"
" To poison. A careful examination
of tbe organs revealed the presence of
a fatal quantity of prusslo acid, which
must have entered tbe stomach during
life as was clearly shown by Its Inflamed
As suddenly as the belief In Volney
Kendall's guilt bad sprung Into being,
a new suspicion flashed on the minds of
It was true, then, that Beth Drlscoll,
with rnln staring him In the face, and
his ward's money to account for, had
taken his own life. And the shot
that must have been fired by Jonas
Wenlock on discovering his uncle's
dead body, and the evidence of suicide
afforded, most likely by the phial which
had contained the deadly draught. He
had thus hoped to secure the insurance
money, which would have been forfeit
ed by death self-inflicted. True, there
was no direct evidence of all this, but
none the less did every one believe it.
"Everything seems cleared up but
the tracks and the pistol," said the coro
ner when the doctor had concluded.
" And these It Is my place to explain
Mr, Kendall having declined to do so,
out of delicacy toward myself." Inter
rupted Kate Dunseth, hastening for
ward from whence she and Volney had
been holding an earnest colloquy for
the past five minutes.
" My guardian had forbidden Mr.
Kendall tbe house; and the latter sent
me a message requesting a secret inter
view In the garden. The message mis
carriedperhaps Intercepted aud Vol
ney, Mr. Kendall I mean not finding
me at tbe place appointed, in returning
over the wall, accidentally left fall the
pistol which he carried for protection in
case of encountering a certain person
who was his deadly foe, au'd who always
went armed." Here she cast a wither
ing glance at Jonas Wenlock who was
careful not to meet it.
The verdict of the jury was that tbe
deceased had come to his death from
poison administered by bis own hand ;
and Volney Kendall went forth a free
man. Kate Dunseth's fortune was ir
retrievably lost, but it was not for that
that Volney had sought her love ; and
be was a prouder man, the day he led
to the altar, at tbe thought that she
could have no doubt now that it was
herself and not her wealth that he had

An Adventure In the Southwest.
WHEN I was quite young, my fath
er went as a missionary to the
Indians who lived in what was known
as the Red River district. We made the
voyage down the river from St. Joseph,
Mo., in two canoes, which were drawn
upon tbe shore for us to sleep in at night,
a bright fire being kindled in front of
them to keep off prowling animals.
In this way our little party consisting
of my father, mother, one older sister,
myself, and two boatmen journeyed to
the mission station. The station was a
long, low, double building of logs, al
ready occupied by another missionary
named McCoy. He had lived, until our
family came, without any other com
panion but a balf-breed Indian called
Supplies were sent to this lonely spot
by the Board of Missions and other
friends from tbe States. These were
brought down the river in canoes, and
hauled up to the station on a rude sled
by a yoke of stout oxen .
One day my father and McCoy bad
gone to the river for a load of supplies.
It was a day's journey to the landing
and back. Tony had gone with them.
No one was left at home but mother and
us two girls.
The day passed very pleasantly.
Toward noon, as we were watching
mother about her work, my sister sud
denly clapped her hands and cried out,
" Oh, what a big dog I"
, We turned to the door and my moth
er uttered a cry of terror,for in tbe door
way there stood, not a dog, but a large
He was probably drawn by the smell
of the sugar and molasses, for bears are
very fond of sweets. We were greatly
frightened, and could not leave the cab
in, because tbe animal was between us
and tbe door.
If we could have got to the ladder and
up the loft we might have escaped that
way ; but the barrels were in front of
tbe ladder, and so was Bruin. There
was really no way of escape, so my
mother drew ua two children close to
her, and took refuge behind the great
packing box, where she had been at
work, thus putting a slight barrier be
tween us and our unwelcome visitor.
A barrel of crackers was open, and
we found out then that bears like crack,
ers, for that fellow soon upset the barrel
and munched as many as he pleased,
while we looked helplessly ou, and saw
our luxuries disappear.
But he was anxious to get at the sugar,
and soon left tbe crackers and began to
paw and scratch at the sugar barrel,
which was not open, aud which stoutly
resisted his efforts.
He grew angry, aud, with a fierco
growl, gave it a smashing blow with
his huge paw, and lifted his foot for an
other, when a report from a rifle sound
ed In our ears, and we beard the ping 1
of a ball, just as Mr. Bruin rolled, a
huge, woolly heap, on the floor. Tbe
sound of a horse's feet followed, And, as
my mother hurried out from her refuge, '
our deliverer stood in the wide door-way.
He was a stalwart Indian, with long
black hair streaming half a yard down
his back, and a scarlet blanket wrapped
around bis strong limbs. We children
were almost as much afraid of him as of
the bear. But all the Indians who came
to the mission were friendly, and my
mother knew this one. He was a Cher
okee chief called Ma-shoon-tire, which
means " The Running Wind."
"Ha! Squaw heap scare V" he cried,
with a laugh. " Me see tracks, track
him in house 1 Shooteel'No hurt?"
accompanying his words with express,
My mother told him we were not hurt
and thanked him for shooting the bear,
in words which he could understand.
"He! he I Bear much good meat!",
said Ma-shoon-tire. " Bear want eatee
up you. Now you eatee up bear."
At my mother's request be dragged
the huge carcass outside tbe door ; but
when she told him It was his bear as be
had shot it, he emphatically refused to
My mother then gathered up a pail
full of tbe scattered crackers and gave
them to Ma-shoon-tire, who, when he
learned their use, seemed to be as delight
ed with them as tbe bear had been. He
filled bis capacious hunting-pouch at his
side with them, and then began to ex
amine the goods which my mother bad
been taking out of the box when she
was Interrupted by his bearship.
Among other things there were two or
three little cotton pocket-handkerckifs,
printed with figures of cats and dogs
and large A-B-C's in bright red. They
had been sent to us children, b'lt the
great Cherokee chief was so delighted
with them that my mother, grateful to
him for saving her from a great danger
gave him two of them.
He took them in great glee from my
sister's band, tied one in his streaming
black hair, and the other to the end of
his rifle-barrel, and said, " Little papoose
makee Ma-shoon-tire fine t Ma-shoon-tire
makee little papoose fine 1 Big much
heap fine!" And taking from his
pouch a long string of brilliant beads,
made of various colored glass, he threw
them over her neck, pleasing her al
most as much as tbe gay little handker
chiefs bad pleased him.
Then he went out to the bear and cut
tbe claws from one of his fore paws as a
Having done this he bounded upon
his pony and rode gaily away, his hand

A Chinese General's Strategy.
A very amusing stoiy is told of the
manner in which the Chinese comman
der in Turkistan reconquered that
county from the Son of Heaven, On
the death of the famous Akalik Gnazi
sovreign to Turkistan, the Chinese Gov
ernment wrote to their general to raise
an army and go forth and conquer.
The general replied that he could do
nothing without arms and money,
whereupon the Chinese Government
sent their general a good round sum of
money and a number of European rifles
of the most improved manufacture, but
at the same time the general was cau
tioned that if his troops lost or spoiled
these arms be would have to replace
them at his own expense. Whereupon
the Chinese General locked away the
rifles in the public arsenals, and armed
his troops with spears, sticks and bows
and arrows. Having thus disposed of
the new weapons the general turned hi
thoughts toward the money. This be
divided into two parts the one be sent
to a relative in Shanghai with instruc
tions to invest it in the bank of the for
eign devils for bis account. The other
half the general distributed among his
country's foes, provided their villages
were quietly surrendered. A series of
victories was then reported to Pekin,.
along with a demand for more money..
