DIVISION How the People of Kentucky Are Dlt franchised and How the People Can Right This Wrong To tho Pooplo of Kontuoky At tho last regular sosslon of tho Goiter Assembly an act was passed dlvldlni the State into 100 Representative dls trlcts which has been approved b the Governor and clothed with all the outor habiliments or forms of law The Constitution of Kentucky prc Ides among other things that Tho First General Assembly afte the adoption of this Constitution shall dlvldo the State Into thirtyeight Senatorial districts and one hundred ROil rtHiitJttlvo districts as nearly equal In population as may be without dl vidlng any county except whero a county may Include more than one district which dlitrlcts shall constl tuto the Senatorial and Represents tn districts for ten years Not more thru two counties shall be joined tog ther tin form u Representative dis trim Provided In doing so tho prln olpii itquiringI i every district to be at narlIqual in population as may IM shall not ho violatde e If In making said districts inequality ol population shall Iw unavoidable any advantage resulting therefrom shall be given to districts having the larg eat territory No part of a county shall be added to another county tc make a district and the counties forming a district shall lw contlgu cms The General Assembly was directed overy ten years thereafter to redistrict the State according to this rule Conceiving that the act In question was a gross violation of both the let ter and spirit of the fundamental law of the State and that it deprived III loge number of our people of the right of selfgovernment the under signed were selected by the uuanl mous voice of the Republican mem bin of the Legislature to take steps to assert the rights of the people ol the State against this unjust Inlqul tout and unconstitutional act of thi LegislatureThe of a cltlsen to propor tionate representation In the Legisla tare so far as It can be practically carried into effect by the instrumea Ulitles ot human government is rae ognised and protected by the Consti tution 155 111 452 By the act In question it appear that more than a quarter of a million of our people in twentyfour districts or rather in twelve of them have been denied and excluded from representa tion in the Legislature to all Intents and purposes The committee having occasion to alto consider the acts of the legisla ture of i May 3 and June 28 1893 dl riding U e State into Senatorial and Representative districts and also the act of March II 1898 dividing the State Into Congressional districts found that they were each and all grossly unfair and violative of the State or Federal law governing the subject As evidence that we are not mis taken in our views on this matter we attaeh hereto tables showing a num her of Senatorial and Representative districts taken from the various acts a well as all the Congressional dis tricts under the act of 1898 These figures taken from time acts and the census of the State speak more eloquently and strongly than anything your committee can say on the subject and need but little com ment at our hands That we have a remedy against the violation of the supreme law of the State and the United States manifest ed In those various acts of the Led lature seems to be too clear for dis pate or argument The com is of the country have not regarded apportionment acts as exceptions to the rule that I ginlatures are bound by constitutional limitations in the enactment of laws and that II they disregard them It Iis the function of the courts to so declare McPherson

The courts of New York New Jer say Indiana Michigan Wisconslu and North Carolina have set aside and de alum void apportionment acts and n nil the States that have so far hall occasion to pass upon the validity of fitoh SawsI the courts have not failed to assert their right and power to dn tilde them valid or Invalid as the facts In the particular case required time court to determine We have found In none of the acts that have boon contested and held invalid In our sister States anything more gromtly unfair and vlolatlve ol the rights of tho citizens to part IcI pate upon equal terms in the affairs of his State government than the acts of our own Legislature that wo propose to tost in the courts At tho last election for President In our State the Jlepuhllcan party cast more than 47 per cent of the total vote cast and time Democratic party a fraction under rtIhr cent If the Assem buy dlstrlctH wen fairly divided innc cordanco with the vote thus cast the Republicans would have sixtyfive members ot tho Legislature Instead of thirtytwo now held by them The committee after a careful cot Bldoratlon of the law and the facts have agreed that It is the duty of our people to contest the acts of the Got oral Assembly of May 3 1893 June 28 1S93 March 11 1898 and tho act of March 190C and wo have tho utmost confidence that with the prose effort each and all of those allege laws will be set aside and hold for naught and that tho Legislature nil bo reconvened and laws more in nc cordanco with justice right and thi Constitution will be enacted We deem It prudont that vnrloui suits be filed against each act lind In every form and manner that sucl suits have been filed In our sister States so that there can be no ques tion that some of the number aro properly brought and will therefore have to be decided upon their merits Wo have secured eminent counsel to take charge of tho litigation In be half of the people and It will require considerable money to pay the ex penses of these various suits give our chosen counsel a moderate fee foi their services and the actual expensei incurred by the committee In prose outing the contests In tho courts The committee is serving without salary or hope of any financial reward for Us services in the matter This is not a party matter as It strikes at the very root of tho prince pie of selfgovernment and tho oqual right of all citizens under the law to participate through their representa tines in the enactment of their laws All men Irrespective of party affilia tions are asked to take an interest In this contest for the preservation ol the rights of time people and to aid us both with voice pen and purse in our efforts to assert and maintain the con stitutional rights of Kentuckians According to the

resptttlVB number of Inhabitants as nearly as may be That which can not be done perfectly must tae done In a man ner as near perfection as can be If ex actness can not from the nature of things be attained thou the nearest practicable approach to exactness ought to be made The Legislature Is not absolved from all rule merely because the rule of perfect Justice cnn not be applied In such a case approximation becomes a rule It takes tho place of the other rule which would be preferable but witch is found Inapplicable and becomes Itself an obligation of binding force The nearest approximation to exact truth or exact right when that exact truth or exact right can not he reached prevails as In other eases not as a matter of discretion but as an Intelligible and definite rule dictated by Justice and conforming to the common sense of mankind a rule of no less binding force in cases to which it Is applicable and no more to be departed from than any other rule Taxation without

who do It Persistent efforts to detect those who would do match the government have been ro warded by the almost total extinction of the professional smuggler but all efforts have availed little against thie traveler abroad who purposely con coals some article of value simply for the fun of getting ahead of the gov eminent The government detectives put smugglers lu four classes The first is thi thoughtless smuggler the second thi occasional traveler who tries to smuggle the third the professional smuggler timid the fourth those who smug gle for fun The professional smuggler has lone since ceased to trouble the federal officers seriously The odds ngalnst kill are so great that he has turned his in genulty to some safer method of dishonesty The lust the smuggler for fun Is ia bother Usually the duty he Is at tempting to save Is hardly enough to pay for the trouble of detection Whit people smuggle covers everything thai can be hidden Costly gems und Jewels form the greater part of time dutiable property seized b the customs olllccrs Tin few professional smugglers confine themselves to diamonds The smug gler for fun Is as apt to try to get in n pair of gloves a bit of

With n Flint Was a Tedious I roccns Few persons living today remember when the tinder box was a necessity But these few are the only ones who thoroughly appreciate the convenience of matches With the aid of a tinder box one sometimes obtained a light In less than two minutes but if the conditions were unfavorable one might spend n half hour or more before get ting from the reluctant tinder box tho spark which would kindle the fire The process sounds simple The lid of the box was removed and a bit of candle stuck In the socket Next the flint stwl matches and damper were taken from the box one match being drawn from the bundle and laid ready for immediate use The handle of tho steel was rasped Irmly In the left baud and the Hint held between tho thumb and forefinger of tho right hand Sine Indies was considered the proper distance between the steel nnd the tin der This was measured roughly In the dark by placing tho tip of the little finger on the rim ofthe box spreading the hand upward and placing the bot tom of the steel on the tip of the thumb The flint was then struck sharply with the steel several times obliquely and downward The impact causVtl the steel to give off sparks

sulphur quickly kindled the wood of thematch and It was the easy to light the candle or mornl fireAlthough the process was not dl cult for an expert under favorable cIr- cumstances It was at best slow and tedious One might strike 100 modern matches one by one In less time The flint commonly used In the tinder box was such as might be picked up in any flint district All that was necessary was that it should be shaped that it could be held easily between the fingers and should have sharp clear edges these were commonly sold in the streets of London f a penny and are still manufactured 1in Brandon England for export to Spain Italy and the east The matches the Ignite spontaneously when struck Originally a match was any substance which burned readily anti slowly The bit of slow burning hemee- rope steeped In a solution of saltpeter which the ancient gunner carried iin order to discharge his arquebus was a match It burned at tho rate of about three feet in an hour The old sulphur match was intended not to produce but to convey fire In London matches were commonly sold by the poorest and raggedest class of street merchants who lived In dirty lodgings in tho poorest districts where the made the matches carrying them about In a basket for sale Few houses with any pretension escaped without at least one call a day from these vend ers as long as the trade lasted Tho great difficulty was to find dry tinder Naturally It was very ready lo absorb moisture and when allowed to become damp tho difficulty of obtain- Ing a light in the morning was To avoid this trouble the tinder try was usually kept in a specially d place Often there was a small niche made on purpose lu the brickwork at the back of the large open hearth place Often the box was placed in the evening on

Volcanic Explosions in East Indies the Most Terrific in History Vast Volumes of Ashes Blown Twenty Miles Above Earth Detonations Heard Three Thousand Miles Dls tant By Sir Robert Ball following description by Sir fRobert Ball of the eruption of Kraka too will be read with special interestt at the present time It is taken from his book The Earths Beginning recently published by D Appleton Co ever habited but the natives from the surrounding shores of Sumatra and used occasionally to draw their its beach while they roamed hthrough the Jungle in search of thei wild fruits The Island seemed to owei its existence to some frightful eruption of bygone days but for a couple a oute break eAt 1883 Krakatoa suddenly sprang into notoriety Insignificant though it had hitherto seemed the little oethunder the whole world to pay It In stant attention It was to become the scene of a volcanic outbreak so appall ing that it Is destined to be remembered throughout the ages At first the eruption did not threaten to be of any serious type In fact the good people of Batavia so far from being terrified at what was in progress in Krakatoa thought tho display was such an attraction that they chartered a steamer and went forth for a pleas ant picnic to the Island Many of us I am sure would have been delighted to have been able to Join the party who were to witness so Interesting spectacle With cautious steps the more venturesome of the excursion party clambered up the sides of the volcano guided by tho sounds which wrro Issuing from its summit There they beheld a vast column of steam pouring forth with terrific noise from a profound opening about thirty yards inwidthAs summer of this dread year advanced the vigor of Krakatoa stead ily Increased The noises became more and more vehement These were pres ently audible on shores ten miles dis tant and then twenty miles distant until the great thunders of tho vol cano now so rapidly developing as tonished the inhabitants that dwelt over an area at least as large as Great Britain and there were other symptoms of the approaching catastrophe With each successive convulsion a quantity of fine dust was projected aloft into the clouds Tho wind could not carry this dust away as rapidly as It was hurled upward by KraKatoa and accordingly the atmosphere became heavily charged with suspended parti cles A pall of darkness thus hung over the adjoining seas and Islands Such was the thickness and the density of these atmospheric volumes of Krakatoa dust that for a hundred miles around the darkness of midnight prevailed at midday Then the awful tragedy of KraUatoa took place Many thousands of the unfortunate Inhab Itants of the adjacent shores of Su matra and Java wore destined never to behold the sun again They were pres ently swept away to destruction In an invasion of the shore by the tremen dous waves with which the seas sur rounding Krakatoa were agitated The development of the volcanic en ergy proceeded and gradually the ter ror of the Inhabitants of the surround- Ing coasts rose to a climax July had ended before tho manifestations of Krakatoa had attained their full violence By the middle of August the panic was widespread for the supreme catastrophe was at hand On the night of Sunday August 2C 1883 the blackness of the dust clouds now much thicker than ever In the Straits of Sunda and adjacent parts of Sumatra and Java was only occasion ally Illumined by lurid flashes from the volcano The Krakatoa thunders were on the point of attaining their complete development At the town of Batavia a hundred miles distant there was no quiet that night The houses trembled with the subterranean vie lence and the windows rattled as If heavy artillery were being discharged In the streets and still these efforts seemed to be only rehearsing for the supreme display On the morning of Monday August 27 1883 the rehears als were over and the performance be gan An overture consisting of two or three introductory explosions was succeeded by a frightful convulsion which tore away a large part of the Island of Krakatoa and scattered it to the winds of heaven This supreme effort it was which produced the mightiest noise that so far as we can ascertain has ever been heard on this globe It must have been indeed a loud noise which could travel from Krakatoa to Batavia and pre serve its vehemence over so great a distance but we should form a very Inadequate conception of the energy of the eruption of Krakatoa If weI thought that its sounds were heard by those merely a hundred miles off ThisI would be little Indeed compared withI what is recorded on testimony which It is impossible to doubtIWestward from Krakatoa stretches the wide expanse of the Indian Ocean On the opposite side from the Straits of Sunda lies the Island of Rodriguez the distance from Krakatoa being al most 3000 miles It has been proved by evidence which cannot be doubted that the thunder of the great volcano attracted the attention of an intelli gent coastguard on Rodriguez who carefully noted the eharaeU a the IOU DM rence He had heard them Just four hours after the actual explosion for this is the time the sound occupied on Its Journey If Vesuvius were vigorous enough to omit a roar like Krakatoa how great would be the consternation of the world I Such a report might be heard by King Edward at Windsor and by the Czar at Moscow It would aston ish the German Emperor and all his subjects It would penetrate to the se elusion of the Sultan at Constantino pie It would have extended to the sources of the Nile near the equator It would have been heard by Mohammedan pilgrims at Mecca It would have reached the ears of exiles in Si berla No inhabitants of Persia would have been beyond its range while pas sengers on half the liners crossing the Atlantic would also catch the mighty anotherrlet us suppose that a liar earthshaking event took place in a central position In the United States explos asIas would certainly startle not a little the Inhabitants of Colorado far and wide neighborfa able shock With lessening Intensity the sound would spread much farther around Indeed it might be heard all over the United States The sonorous Atlanticfshores of the Pacific Florida would not be too far to the south nor Alaska too remote to the north If Indeed we could believe that the sound would travel as freely over the great continent as it did across the Indian Ocean then we may boldly assert that every ear In North America might listen to the thunder from Pikes Peal If It rivaled Krakatoa Can we doubt that Krakatoa made the greatest noise that has ever been recorded 1 Among the many other Incidents connected with this explosion I may syaa in our atmosphere from tho point at which the eruption took place The Initial Impetus was so tremendous that these waves spread for hundreds and thousands of miles They diverged In fact until they put a mighty girdle round the earth on a great circle of which Krakatoa was the pole The at mospheric waves with the wholo earth now well In their grasp advanced Into the opposite hemisphere In their progress they lied necessarily to form gradually contracting circles until at last they converged to a point in Cen tral America at the very opposite point of the diameter of our earth 8000 miles from Krakatoa Thus the waves completely embraced the earth Every part of our atmosphere had been set into a tingle by the great t bliss Oitllle Guenther who was recently given a private audience by Pope Pius X is a Chicago girl and a daughter of Otto

supplying our lungs was responding also to the supreme convulsion which took place 10000 miles away It Is needless to object that this could not have taken place because we did not feel It Self registering barometers have enabled these waves to be followed unmistak ably all over the globe Such was the energy with which these vibrations were initiated at Krakatoa that even when the waves thus arising had converged to tho point diametrically opposite In South America their vigor was not yet ex n xtai a u AWFUL BALLOON VOYAGE German Military Aeronauts Safe Only After a Terrible Ex perience

two balloonists caught in the gale In the upper air wore blown at terrific speed for three days unable to make a descent without being dashed todeathAs wind seemed to slacken the balloonists opened their valve prepar- Ing to descend What was their horror upon seeing as they dropped from tho clouds that the open sea was beneath them They tried to shut the valve but were only partly successful When within a few hundred fret of the water the valve was closed by Wolff who climbed up to the cordage surrounding tho gas bag to do it But the balloon atlll dropped nearer the sen Finally desperate tho balloon Isis climbed Into the balloons rigging and cut the basket from under them Clinging to tho cordage alxmi the balloon the two men hung between hope and fear for a few moments as the bag seemed to hover unonainly The thought canto into their minds simultaneously that one must droll off and lighten the weight to save his comrade otherwise bout must drown But slowly tho bag began to rise once more CLUNG TO CORDAGE FOR HOURS After clinging for hours to the cordage thousands of feet In the air overt he sea the two soldiers mado out tho laud As soon as It was safe the valve was

deputy com missioner of police assemble In the princes or peers robing room and await the coming of the yeomen of the guard consisting of an exon the ser geant major and ten yeomen On theIr arrival a procession Is formed headed by the chief of police In charge Parti sans are laid aside and each yeoman Is handed one of tho same little oil lamps which have probably been In use from time immemorial The exon gives tho word the proces sion moves ort and the search com mences Cautiously descending by Iron ladders for the yeomen are no longer youngand traversing Iron grating floors they gradually descend to tho vaults below The walls are all painted or colored white and under the glare of tho modern electric lamps which brilliantly illuminate every part of the vaults It would be difficult for the smallest object to remain undiscov ered Slowly the party reascends to the princes chamber lamps are re turned partisans are shouldered the exon reports to the lord great chum berlain that the search has been well and truly carried out and that the houses of parlJament can assemble in safety the official part of the ceremony is over and tho guard Is dismissed from duty The men then proceed according to ancient custom to the offices of Messrs Bellamy the old firm of wine merchants where by special permission the gallant yeomen drink the kings health in the best port In 17GO the firm of Bellamy applied to the authori ties of the houses of parliament to be permitted to rent and use as wine cellars one portion of the empty vaults This was granted and the custom was Initiated by tbe founder of the firm Old Bellamy so to arrange the search that the yeomen of the guard should bring It to an end at the wine stores There the announcement was made Alls well and the guard be ing drawn up drank the kings or queens health in Bellamys old port God save the king The wine cellars have been removed elsewhere but the good custom remains The yeomen of the guard are a most fascinating institution the first perma nent body guard of Englands sover eigns and the first permanent corps of trained soldiers In our history Imi tated perhaps from the Scottish guard of the French kings the corps was formed as far back as the year 1485 When Henry VII landed In England from Normandy he was accompanied by a small guard of English and Welsh who had shared his exile They were with him at Boswortb and surrounded by them he received the crown of Eng land It was this body of personal attend ants that became in September 1485 the yeomen of the guard ever since the personal bodyguard of the sovereigns of England It still retains the pic turesque dress with tbe original title of yeomen which It wore under Its first captain John do Vere carl of Ox ford Tbe original duty of the corps was to protect the king In battle and otherwise and ho was accompanied by his yeomen wherever he went The yeoman of the guard have taken part In many a battle and siege and In most royal pageants from tbe Field of the Cloth of Gold to the opening of parlia mentWhen his majesty the king opens parliament the beef eaters will be In close attendance on the state coach The office of captain of the guard Is a political one and changes wild the gov ernment but the lieutenant tho en sign the clork of tho cheque or ad jutant and the exans are required to have served In tho army or marines and have sees war service Tbe yeomen must have been noncommissioned officers In tho army or marines of ap proved and distinguished service and the appointments as may be Imagined are the most highly prized of any which are open to old soldiers The yeomen of the guard are very fre quently confounded with the warders of the Tower but they are now a dis tinct body When Henry VIII relin quished tho Tower as a residence ho was not unmindful of the dignity at taching to It Twelve yeomen of the guard were left behind as Tower ward ers who then became a separate or ganization with a slightly different dress

Roads ami Bridges arc Substantial Enduring and ttPicturesquei t J RuralJIdea That We Think But Little Of Posterity There Is an old story which will bear telling again ns It illustrates BO well the disadvantages to be over come In a new country It Is of an American traveling In England who when out walking one day stopped in front of an old English mansion to ad mire It and its surroundings What particularly impressed him was the magnificent sweep of velvet lawn which extended without a flaw or blemish from the hedge along the roadway up to the very steps of the I An old gardener was at work Ifbouse place and at that particular was pushing u lawn mower across ENGLISH AND RAILROAD j the sward the American hallod him and with the uwuitl freedom nnd In qnlBltlrenees of lhie nationality asked many jucstloiis MM to the conduct of affair in Michi nn stablislmuiit no the pirdriKT wile finnect l with IIl1J inf he niiil to the gardener how do yon Illtlke n lawn HUe thIn I hove n iince In America and I am trying to wake a lawn around tho bouse but It cloennt soem to do well The old gardener scratched his head end looking doubtfully at the Ameri can he said You must have ft good fcubsoll and n good surface soil and the sod must be well laid Then you must roll it and cut It and water it and keep on doing this until its rightA TURY TO MAKE A LAWN The American agreed with him that the was simple and then asked How long will I have to do this before the lawn is like that one The old gardener again spoke doubt fully but finally gave it as his opinion that If his directions were followed lor anywhere from fifty to a hundred the results would be all thatcould be desired This same idea might also npply to the roads and bridges throughout Eng land for much of their excellence Is due to tho fact that their foundations were laid scores of years ago and generation after generation of workers bas been tinkering nt them ever since In tact the roads built by the Romans now serve ns the foundations for some of the best known English highways and to the of London east and west through the beautl roadLS of motor ears which In its beginning was the highway beaten hard by the sandaled feet of the early Britons as fromwbackbreaking burdens of tin This game road was af terwards improved In Its texture and grades bpcnuse of its being the high England Btlll shaded in places by the yew trees r agotoarchers ENGLISH ROADS VERY NARROW roadIII fact that It Is only In certain placet that one team can pass another without considerable mnnocuverlng It all the labor expended upon an American country road were to be concentrated opon a narrow track only wide enough for n farmers wagon gre Improvement In results would noted for it Is of course much cheaper to lay the foundations build up the body and surface a road fourteen feet wide than to put into shape a highway which at its narrowest poi the ambitious Americans have exten ed to forty feet This In Itself is a point which It intelligently adopt would in many places solve the que Uon of a practicable roadway upo twhich in nil kinds of weather and a all times of the year a single team of horses could haul a profitable load to market The English farmer uses n cart a on which a single horse draws anywhere from one to two tons of dead weight The tires of the wheels an from tour to eight inches In breadth thereby cutting no ruts nnd each pass- Ing vehicle adds to the solidity and smoothness of the road in that Itf wheels serve as effective rollers COUNTRY ROAD BRIDGE CROSSING TRACK process south It is not duo to nay peculiar advan I tage of soil and certainly not to any I advantages of cilinnto that English I roadH are better than American roads for if one leaves the highway in the t English country tho lanes will bo found by n traveling American to hove a most homelike appearance In their rutted condition and a very great contrast In the matter of holes bogs and boulders to the highway left behind No climate conld be more threatening to the solidity of a road way than tho moist nnd changeable weather of the British Isles STURDY APPEARANCE OP THE BRIDGES In the matter of bridges solidity eeems to be the purpose in view Tho arches and retaining walls are built of stone approaches are gradual and when once the finishing touch is put upon one of these structures it will with little supervision and care outlast even to many generations the men whose handiwork it is The solid masonry arch the heavy stone capped wall and the gradual rise of tho road i I way to the centre of the bridge are entirely utilitarian In the minds of the builders but they possess a cer thin sturdy character of their own I which Is a form of beauty welcomed by the eye Time softens the colors I ivy creeps over the stones and in a y I short space even if newly built one of these English country road bridges takes a permanent place in the land alwayshavingalways to remain t THEIR VALCE TO THE TEAMSTER Aside from the beauty strength and durability of these macadam roads sad atone bridges they possess an economic value which plays a large Englishfarmemail nnd there is no reason to be lieve but that the American farmer especially in regions where tho culti i vatlon of the land Is more or less intensive we would find similar roads and bridges of enormous value through nn

address delivered by tho president of tho International Associa byMbureaus of tho United States govern tathe Treasury alone caused the arrest of 632 persons charged with serious crimes Of those taken Into custody fortyono were arrested for counter felting tho currency fiftytwo for mak ing alterations in the currency 344 for counterfeiting coin and the remainder for various violations of the United States statutes Of the 532 alleged of fenders 392 wero natlvo Americans fortytwo were Italians some of whom wero naturalized and thirteen wero Austrians The largest number of ar rests were made in Pennsylvania where those apprehended numbered ninety four New York followed with seventy seven arrests Ohio with thirtyfive California with twentynine Missouri with twentythree and in the remaining Instances every state and territory with the exception of Alaska was represent ed As compared with last year there was a decrease in the amount of count erfeit currency seized by government officers and an Increase in the amount of counterfeit coin confiscated The total face value of the notes seized was 36834 against 44350 tho preceding year and of the spurious coin 24110 as against 16419 the year before The number of plates for printing counterfeit bills captured by the government was 165 and tho number of dies and molds for casting and stamping count erfelt coins was 454 Nearly all this stuff was seized by the Government before it lead boon placed in circula tion Nine classes of counterfeit notes were placed in circulation and of these in the opinion of tho Treasury of ficers only four were cleverly enough executed to bo called dangerous RAISING SMALL BILLS The feature of the work of makers of false money this year was in raising tho denomination of bills There was rather a remarkable increase in this illicit industry and tho raisers were particularly busy in circulating these altered obligations in Ohio Indiana Illinois and other states of the middle west It is believed by tho officers of the secret service that the leading of fenders in this division of criminal work were captured though there Is no doubt that many altered bills aro still passing from hand to hand in the chan tho1nuNlI pieces of work done by the secret ser vice men was the apprehension of three groups counterfeiters who wero issuing fraudulent obligations of the government BROCKWAY THE KING OF

locamp and the Marne River The first contact had occurred the day before when nt a German brigade of armored automo 11biles undertook to reconnoiter to the south The French had sent out a similar W brigade for the same purpose and they met near a small village The two forces came together In a mad charge The steel conical prows of the great cars rammed at high speed crashing into and over one ofIimachine had emerged in condition to return pa to camp An assault with such a force upon cavalry or Infantry would be Irresistible but upon an enemy of Its own kind it meant mutual annihilation It was be a striking example of the untitn ss of Lu1 such machines for general warfare I At dark we were ready for the advance I moving under cover of night to avoid the allseeing eyes of the airships- A brief statement of the military situation seems necessary in order that the reader may understand the nature of our undertaking As has been stated the French occupied the Marne liver from ChalonssurMarne to BarleDuc Be tween these towns the south bank of the Marne rises sharply from the waUr to a height of perhaps two hundred feet fall Ing away at the rear In a sunny slope covered with vineyards and orchards On the edge of this cliff the French had constructed sunken fortifications manned by great cannon mounted on disappearing I carriages alternating with mortars for hurling novel projectiles of which they l had a choice collection as we afterward learned In all this precipitous bank there Is rib break save one where a road comes down to tho river crosses a narrow utone bridge and turns toward Rhelms On the north side of the river the bank i Is low and the land stretches away for r miles to the north east and west forming the gteat Catalunlan Field an ideal place for military operations Here resting on the river and protected by the great guns on the fortified cliffs the French had BMLxoed their second and third armies and wee working north with rifle pits and irthworks expecting to overwhelm the german Invaders Che German advance had moved abuth ometen miles the right resting on Stl Urythe left on the Isie hive Jt was planfied SCflI strong iletaehm its

Into tho water To movingtonly other point at which the French could cross Here the south bank tell away and tho north bank roso In three hills the center ot the trio being really a- small mountain with n flat toP which commanded the bridge below and the banks of the Marno for some distance The French fortlllcatlons did not extend this tar and the main danger Was In the possibility of an opposing force reaching the hill before we could get there With a detachment of ten Infantry regl meats and one of cavalry we pushed on dawnrto the base of the Monte Feller Here wo encamped to await the signal to advance and the arrival of a regiment of artillery Early in the afternoon we heard firing away to the east The battle had opened Hourly It grew heavier The sharp snappybark of the highpower field guns blended with the roll of rifles and the wlcrd howl of the new multiplex ribbon continuousIstream of explosive bursting on the slightest impact and tearing their vie tim horribly Presently the great twelve Inch guns on the high banks came into play Their booming reports echoed through the heavens bespeaking enor mous projectiles The din was fearful I thanked my stars that I was not within range As the darkness came on we could catch the flashes or light as the French guns belched out their tons of iron and the mortars their pots of acid fire and liquid gas It was not until afterward that I learned the full extent of the devil ishness of mans Inventive Ingenuity in providing means for the destruction of human life Then came our signal High In the air to the east appeared a shower of golden sparks and the mysterious echoing boom of an aerial projectile was borne to our ears The sparks paled and fell and from their midst floated three blue stars It means that tho French are retreating to tho river fend that Monte Feller must betaken said Lowenberg He gave an order and the word was passed vn The artillery had not comeIt never a matter of fact Some one camelas dered But we waited not Here was our task and we moved toward it with alacrityThe came to an end In front of greatdarkLowenbergFleischmann as we emerged from the woods the troops directlyInlet whistled past my ear Another flash and report another and another each farther up the hill Silence tell broken only by tho tramp of thousands of feet Wo saw that our advance was known to the French but we pushed on It was no stopWe half of the distance and were climbing steadily when the whole top of the hill lighted Up and a hall of lead descended The front row of cavalry went down a struggling mass of men and horses It was no place for cavalry Again and again oame that terrible flash The crashing report as of thousands of rifles and the song of lead in our ears was terrible The storm was too heavy Officers and men alike threw themselves on the ground and sought shelter behind tho boulders with which the hill was strewn or In depressions in the ground The fire became continuous And now the French lolsted great searchlights that revealed our ranks The sharp white rays dazzled our eyes and wo could see nothing Some eight thousand troops hugged the ground sheltered and unsheltered Men groaned and cursed and shrieked In agony Horses maddened with pain and fright staggered to thlr feet and went galloping down the hill Killing and maiming many At brief and regular Intervals came that sheet of flame and the hall of bullets It was death to retreat and death to remain So we lay until daylight As the dawn broke and the sun lit the sky the French continued their destruc tion in a more diabolical fashion From the top of the hill they rolled great balls of tough paper which broke on the rocks and scattered burning acids and noxious gastor Directly above the point where we three lay there was a welldefined hum mock which deflected these hideous Implements of warfare else I should not have survived that experience Of those who were not so protected tow escaped The whole side of the hill for half a mile was covered with dead and dying During the night the firing on the east had diminished but with the dawn opened again and the heavens were rent with the crash and roar of mighty guns which continued all day without Intermission The tiring abovo us ceased how ever and the horrible balls of add came no longer Lowenberg concluded that the French ammunition had given out and that an attack was again possible A sin glo regiment had been left behind as a serve An orderly was sent back and presently we heard tho buglo sound the advance It was a magnificent sight to sea them slopeheyIn open order sneaking from rock to rockthere were no trees to give shelter When they reached us we roso and led them I kept near Flelschmann who was jealously guarding Lowenberg On we went a few yards at a time We were less than a hundred yards from the top when the bugler at Lowenbergs side gave the signal for a rush As the clear note rang out the men straightened from their crouching positions and drawing went up on the run shouting their stirring war cry Vorwoerts Preussenl As we reached the last yard ot the ns scent the very air over our heads burst Into flame Had we been a foot hither our whole line would have gone down as did the cavalry the night before But the French aimed too high with this their last y lleyand the next moment lYe wet upon them clasbin against a wallQf bristling Wyoueu tsel tntk LaU V I T along the line Flelschmann had fallen back slipping on a loose stone Now ho fairly leaped ahead of us his groat sabra sweeping down a row of baronets as a scythe in ripe wheat The French stood In a pit dug around the brow of the lull and fought like demons There seemed to be thousands of them Our revolvers were emptied Immediately and It was then a primitive light hand to hand face to face shoulder to shoulder I struck out to right and left with but one Ideaselfpreserva tion As in a dream L heard the deadly clash of metal tho puffing and grunting of straining men the blasphemy the shriek of the wounded Farther around tho hill top our men were falling back and farther yet they were clear Inside the line driving the French before them A few of our men gathered about us and almost surrounded by the infuriated French wo lucid our own lighting with tho absolute despera tion that comes Into a mans heart but onco In a lifetime We wero fairly walled In with tho dead yet as fast as they went down others camo forward There seemedI to be no end to the cut and slash theI spurting of red blood tho glare of angry eyes looking Into our own with murderouuI hato Lowenberg was on my right Flelschmann wielding his sabre likeI a Hall Steady boys he cried andI agaIn Steady SVelL have them on the run But In my heart I knew that iiI could not be so that wo must go down blood and dust victims of a misguidedI principle Then an ugly squat Frenchman who had been felled some time before by one of Lowenbergs lightning strokes wrlgglell up through the heap of dead and with n desperate thrust sent his bayonet Into Lowenbergs vitals Ah God how sick ened me My beloved friend sank with n gasp mist obscured my sight for a moment I weakened and my sword wa vered Before I could recover the Jltt of n musket appeared In the air Immed tely before mo and descended upon my head My oars rang like a foundry Tho whole world seemed suddenly to be whirling like a Fourth of July pinwheel with multi tudes of sparks flying I tottered back ward and fell heavily upon the pile of dead In the trench As I went down I looked at Flelschmann He stood erect with feet well spread like some great wargod a sabre In ench hand hewing smashing cutllngahis lips compressed his jaws set Ho had thrown away his coat long before his hat was gone a cut on his temple lot the blood trickle down over his bronzed cheeks Injo my heart came a great love for this mighty fighter Then my light went out and the horrid noise of war faded away Into tho great silence It was Flelschpianns voice In my ears that wakened hie I lay upon the grits In a small open shed lIe was bathing my head with cool water Quickly recol lection came bark to me and stung Into activity by my supposed danger I rose to my feet lInt the danger was past Save for the dead and wounded there was not a Frenchman In sight Flelschmann was as calm as before the fight began lie told mo that just as tie was about to give up his comrades came to tho rescue Wo were In full possession but at what a fearful cost Out of ten thousand men barely five hundred to answer the call- I found Lowenberg lying on a heap of straw his light flickering his mind wandering At Intervals he gave orders cried out to his wife or sang snatches of Ger man ballads one of his under otflcers who was a physician sat near He shook his head In answer to my Inquiry There hopePresentlymy friend turned his head and looked at me with eyes suddenly grown clear Adams he said faintly tell the boys was a good fight They were true Prussians And tell trll his MaJes- ty He half rose and raised his arm with clenched fist For God and the Fatherland ho cried in ringing tones and fell bark dead We turned the French guns in the direc tion of the river and prepared to hold our little fort for the expected assault For several hours there had been little or no firing to the cast whore the main armies were engaged It was late after noon now The sky was becoming over cast and the wind was rising Presently the sound of firing rose again All tho guns In tho world seemed to bo going off at once From our elevated po sition we could sec far out on tho plain I picked up a glass from a dead oUlccr and put It to my eyes There lay the panorama of war Like moving patches of dead grass appeared the forces The brown khaki of the Germans and the soft gray sealslandcloth of the French gave distinction enough There was no i smoke for this Is tho day of smokeless powder The center of fighting appearcj to be well down the bend of the Slarre and as I watched I could see that tIe water was full of black specks TIe French were being forced Into the river A large body of the gray was hurrylnof u1 the river bank making for tho Mont Ieller crossing And wo with but half a thousand men to defend Itl The wind Increased In force The skies grew dark And now coming from the south appeared a shoal of small airships ot a now dirigible type with fans and rudders They circled above us hardly a quarter of a mile nway and swung down toward the battlefield heading Into the gale In regular formation And as 1 watched a strange thing happened The ships were poised directly over the victorious Germans Suddenly a series of peculiar popping reports came to my cars I saw tho Germans breaking scatterIng running away from the French The round beneath them behind them In front of them sparkled like the phosphorescent ocean I saw the whole army dlsorganlzodhrdetrack and as the sky lightened for a moment I saw that the track was hu mantho bodies of men prone upon tho earth I called Fleischmann Look I cried The army Is retreating Seo tho sparks around them What does mean Irt THE tVO FORCES CAME

from above Our boys are being blown to pieces We can not escape Before he could see more tho sky became black with tho approach- Ing storm and tho rain came down In sheets shutting out tho plain and the doomed arrrly We took shelter under tho little shed depressed and Bllent It was very dark The wind blow fiercely In spite of the rain however Flelschmann insisted on making a tour of the lines to see that the men were on guard Faithful Fleisch mann Let me pay tribute here to your unwavering loyalty- I had dropped Into a doze weary with the days excitement when there came a smash and the little shed tumbled about my ears I heard a highpitched humming In the air above me lIke the drone of a bees wings many times Intensified Some enormous bulk hovered over me 1 winched upward In Involuntary defense and my hands grasped what I knew instantly to be the basket of ee of the iynsiulte dupe I wasverned along with or rtz i s a I i It fearing to let go My feet dragged over the ground and the next moment 1 swung off into space but I kept my wits and throwing a leg over the edge of the basket clumbered In Though It was In tensely dark 1 knew that 1 was rising I felt around tho basket It was unoccupied save by myself In one corner a small motor sparkled going at high speed I had been sulllclently associated with aeronauts to know that this controlled the steering fans but that the ship would lluat without Its operation And with a shrewd suspicion that I might want the power later 1 switched off the current The humming stopped and I floated as In a subterranean lake- I was very tired My head was aching and I realized thnt I had not eaten for ia day and a night Fumbling around I found another switch and turning It wall delighted by the illumination of tho in terlor of tho basket from several liny In candescent lamps In one corner stood a wicker hamper labeled Proviso I opened It eager y and found n supply at- I I crackers cheese sardines canned meat and sweet chocolate A rack on the side held three tins of water So In reason able comfort I sat there In the basket and ate my lunch The rain had ceased the wind foil far above me appeared a pale mist through which the moon broke In mellow light The mysterious silence tue absence of apparent motion as I sailed peacetoof Lowenberg dead and gone of bravo FlelBchmann left behind In the little fort fightItagoAnd until I was

financier burled Ills face in his Lands as a great Hood of bitter ness crowded his soul Tic had locked the door of his private odlce and de nied himself to every one all morning Just as years before ho had shut tho world and its people from Ills heart When hut a child ho had been branded as a bad boy and other children were forbidden to play with him lIe had grown up asking him Edt why no ono loved him That ho was bad he hud learned as a parrot would but the real moaning was too vague to be understood by his childish mind At school no one had understood him Once when he was disobedient a plan had been conceived to punish his favorite teacher lIe was so grieved that lie rim nway for fear ho might again cause pain or punishment to the ono ho loved No one came and asked why he lIlt solie was expelled That to starve to die was better than to live without sympathy had boon his early onluII11 for truly was ho being eaten up with n gnawing hunger for sympathy and companionship I Once when he was a young business man successful Indeed because ho gave his lifehis whole energyto work some one started a report that ho was dishonest in a deal I lIe cried out against the injustice of a world which would not see He was tried and the Judge who no doubt meant to he honest decided against him because circumstances were not in his favor Not one came to say I know I be Hove you are honest No Yonder KUo a haunted thing which would fly to shelter from tho eyos of the world ho lived alone in his grief of being misunderstood Years after when It was found tatho was honest that ho had loon falsly accused no one came to rejoice with him and ho cared but little but renl ized anew how little the world cared to bo just His eyes were kind and seemed to appeal to you to respond hut his I mouth was sot and firm and line which once expressed sweetness lund now deepened into furrows of care and I coldnessAs sat there dreaming his life I over he wondered who was ever denied sympathy as he I A rap came on the door and ho ad mitted his bookkeeper a woman She looked frightened and there were traces of tears in her eyes lIe asked her to be seated Anyone In trouble was welcome particularly this woman whom he had more than admiredI come she said to nik what you are going to do with me There is money missing from tho safe There Is no way to prove my Inno cence for I believe I alone have the combination and I am too poor to return the money Of course you can not know or understand that I would not steuland the woman wept bitterly Vhy do you say I cannot understand 7 he asked I do not know she saidfll only felt you would notno one ever doe We are born in one sphere and forced to live in another where it Is all mis trust and bitterness- I do know I do understand ho repliedThe woman looked nt him through her tears and saw two great eyes or kindness yet she dared not believe You really do not think I took the money she asked And If I didnt would you care other than for the disgrace flYes oh yes I should want you to think me honest because I know bow you hate dishonestyIThen I do In your Innocence There are none who can so sympa thise ns those who have suffered and I only hope you may never suffer as I haveBut you sir are rich she said Yes In money but ns for friends I have none now she wished to tell him how she admired and loved him But she was a waman and only a bookkeeper so she thanked him for his trust In her but forgot to offer him the word or sympathy anti he thinking no ono coultl love him mistook her modesty for Indifference So the word which

of lumber with the consequent increase in the cost of wood make the erection of fences on the farm a matter of con cern for the landholder heretofore has looked upon wood as a proper material for the construction of an effective fence Metalthat is fence wirehas almost entirely replaced the rails which at one time were considered necessary I to make a fence stockproof We still find however that timber Is in most localities the cheapest material for fence posts though the supply avail able is becoming scarcer each year and it is possible that in the future It may be necessary In every section I A SUBSTANTIAL ROAD ot the country to use posts made of Iron or concrete even as Is now done in many places An essential feature of a rail fence Is a comparatively short panel but now that wire is in the majority of cases taking the place of the rail it is questionable whether as many posts are necessary as was the case when rail were used Recent tests were made at an English experiment station to do termine upon the best method of con structing a fence One point considered was whether a fence constructed with a dropper Is as efficient trod durablo as one constructed entirely with paell- A second point under consideration was the minimum number of posts required in the construction of an efficient and durable fence when droppers are used and the character of the dropper required for best results The dropper is I a thin vertical brace used to strengthen the stretch of wire between posts As metal is admittedly more durable than wood an endeavor was made to obtain a suitable rigid metal dropper but with out success NOTCH THE CORNER POSTS LOW An error that farmers sometimes t make in erecting a fence is that they place the corner supports or struts too near the top of the post and conse quently at too great anangle with the line of the fence so that when the wires are stretched tightly the post Is pulled out of the ground notwithstanding that huge bowlders are piled against the post or hung on It In an endeavor to keep it in the ground One fpme which has been found to prove very satisfactory consists of square posts and top rail with three or four rows of plain wire fastened on the outsld edges of the post instead of through holes bored In the uprights To th SP wires is fastened ordinary poultry hitting with say an Inch and ahalf or twoinch mesh This netting may b strained very tight and will lie as flat as a board the appearance of the fence being thereby greatly improved While the use of barbwire in the construction of fences is regretted ow ing to the Injury which It sometimes inflicts upon the live stock there Is no doubt that its employment under cer tain conditions prolongs the life of al fence deterring stock from rubbing against It and unduly straining the plain wires It has been argued that stock soon get to understand how dan AND gerous barbwire Is and when In a quiet condition are rarely Injured by it but once excited by panic or play they its danger and often suffer In consequence While there may be some styles woven fence which will enable tho farmer to discontinue barb wire the new material must have suf ficlent elasticity to recover from occa sional very severe and unusual strains and also sufficient to respond to our varied Conditions of heat and cold and so require no straining after Its erection The American fence manufactur ers seem to ahead of the Europeans L11e d CUot1VJ IoifiJ I A FENCES AND GATE POSTS GUY ELLIOTT MITCHELL Is possible to obtain from thorn fences constructed entirely of metal at small costWhile the unprogresslve farmer Is content to have a few bars to let down in order to admit of the passage of teams or wagons no fence is complete without an entrance and therefore without a gate for at best bars are only makeshifts and a loss of both time and temper It is surprising how common they are when excellent and serviceable light gates can now bo pur chased very cheaply and even where the lack of money Is an obstacle to this a handy man can with the aid of an axe a hammer and some nails build and hang a strong useful gate with no I GATE I of other outlay than the expenditure of a few hours labor and certainly In less timei than Is required in the continual i putting down and up of the bars Experiment has shown that It is ad visable to have the openings of the farm gates 16 feet wide or thereabouts 1 In order to admit of the transfer of the farm implements from one field to an other Where sonic fields are planted with small green crops from which the farmer desires to keep his poultry It Is tI thought best that the bottom rail of this gate should be within an inch of I the ground so that the poultry cannot crawl under The gate posts should be A PLEASING FENCE OF TIMBER POULTRY WIRE I forget be f quite separate and distinct from any posts used In the construction of the fence as a better effect is obtained without additional trouble if they are slightly higher than the uprights In the gate and higher than the fence posts adjoining the gateway The main entrance to the farm and also the gateways around the dwelling may be still further improved If a little addi tional trouble is taken to square the topsNountil It is painted for not only does painting aid In giving a tidy appear ante but prolongs the life of the wood = L 1 v 1 It will be belter anti a saving of time if the timber after being cut up for tho gates Is given a couple of coats of paint before being put together After the gato is completed and hung It can be given a final coat The first or priming coat should be very thin in fact may be nearly all raw linseed oil The second and last coats will of course be a little thicker and in order to dry hard and with a little gloss should contain a small quantify of tur pentine and boiled oil While tastes may differ as to color results have shown that white seems to give tho most satisfaction while tho Iron work painted black will make a slight contrast adding to the improved appear ance of the gateway STILL USE DASHER CHURNS Even in this Day of Creameries But ter Is Made in the Good Old Fashioned Way The chances are ten to one or better that the butter you buy at the grocery store now was made in a creamery for the great bulk of the butter consumed in this country Is made in milk estab lishments But there Is still some butter made by hand and we still sell churns right along The greater number of the Individual churns now sold said a churn manufacturer in Chicago recently In speaking of the growth of the creamery business are of the cylinder type operated by a crank turning within the churn a wheel with paddles some times like the paddlewheel of a steam boat but wo etlll sell as well churns of the oldfashioned typo such as our grandmothers used and such as their grandmothers used before them I might add that the oldfashioned dasher churn Is still as it has always been painted blue Who still buys these old styles hand churns In the day of machinemade butter Why so to speak the oldest people and tho most modern too They are bought by small farmers keeping only one or a few cows who naturally continue to make their own butter and who make It of course with a hand churn Some of these farmers might make more butter than they would require for their own use and tho surplus they would sell as they would their surplus eggs to the country store And you find larger farmers too farmers perhaps keeping many cows and selling the bulk of their milk to a creamery still continuing to make the butter that they need for them selves and making it as they have al ways done in a hand churn Such churns are sold to people liv ing In suburban or country homes and keeping cows who make their own butter because they prefer to anyway and they are bought by various people everywhere who want sweet or unsalted butter and who make It for themselves In hand churns America exports churns to the West Indies and South America and to New Zealand and Australia and to dairying countries in various other parts of the would but we still supply our own people with the oldfashioned dasher as we did twenty years ago TO

Out Necessity for More Thorough Farm Education Is in Effect a Country High School Tho consolidated school question is a feature of tho country school educa tion problem which is rapidly coming to the fore especially In the northwest and it promises much for better farm education The proposition is that six or seven or ten of the crossroads schools in any rural district shall be combined into one larger school and were it not for the question of trans portation of tho scholars to and from tho central school It would undoubtedly meet with universal favor From an educational point of view tho ad vantages of tho consolidated school plan aro very great Assistant Sec retary of Agriculture Hays Is an enthusiastic advocate of the plan and states that where the plan has been put Into operation tho beneficial re sults havo been manifold Tho ques tion has been agitated to n consider ablo extent in his own State of Minn esota due largely to his own efforts Professor Hays is thoroughly alive to tho fact that a better scheme of edu cation is needed for tho farm boy If he Is to lkeep his foremost position among tho worlds agriculturists FOR BETTER FARM EDUCATION The time Professor Hays says has gone by when an ordinary schooll education will serve for the farm boy The three Rs are not sufficient to enable him to succeed in life He must havo special education for farming just as the young man or woman who is to enter professional life has special in struction along tho lines ho expects to follow And so tho consolidated school comes in with Its better educational facilities Canada has taken an advanced stand on this question and is consolidating her country schools In a word the farmers children are being given the advantages of a high school education As President Creelman of tho On tario Agricultural College has pointed out the system undoubtedly is from a standpoint of dollars and cents more expensive for tho first few years at least but tho rural ratepayer has It to decide for himself whether he would rather pay five dollars more per year and secure for his boy or girl such Increased benefits as tho consolidated school can give or leave them in the hands of an inexperienced girl teacher who perhaps does her best in a little one roomed school without facilities of demonstration of any kind PRACTICAL FARM SCIENCE One of tho most Important features of these schools Is tho school garden where practical farm science is taught in a practical way Such gardens aro not however confined to the con solidated schools but are now being kept in connection with a number of tho more progressive district schools In various parts of tho country They aro usually from two to three acres in area divided into experimental and Individual plots for each of tho pupils ranging in size from six feet square to six by ten or oven twenty The general plan of laying out each garden Involves 1 a belt ot native trees and shrubs surrounding the grounds 2 a halfacro playfleld for the boys 3l a lawn bordered with shade trees for the girls 4 a shaded walk each for boys nnd girls about a hundred yards long 5 an attractive approach to the school consisting chiefly of a piece of open lawn with shrubs and flowers on either side 6 a suitable reservation for individuals and class plots 7 an orchard plot or border 8 a forest plot in which the chief native trees are grown from the seed PLANTS GROWN BY PUPILS JThe ordinary range of vegetables and a selection of flowering plants are grown in these gardens the pupils themselves furnishing the necessary work In the large schools two hours each week are found sufficient for tho garden work and one hour in tho smaller in both cases under the supervision of the teacher or a special Instructor The school garden serves a double purpose since It not only provides the most practical form of nature study but acts as a valuable in centive in tho general school work It is no uncommon sight during the sum mer season to see a public school in session out of doors not with slate and pencil but with hoe and shovel The pupils thoroughly enjoy It They aro allowed the proceeds of their plots as their own property and in addition may take home the plants left over from thinning out The class plots aro reserved as a source of rev enue for the school and as a supply In some cases for the school lunches FormQr Iron Master Andrew Car negie has

a broken heart at Fort Stevens at the moutn of the Columbia and we gave him a sort of informal military funeral and hurled him where the moaning of the bar Is always heard There had been a battle near the Yellowstone and the Noz Forces had gradually had to give way and retreat as the dusk drew down to hide the damage of the day But all the war riors did not go Among the rocks up the carton nine of them lay In one heap seven in another at rest at last Four dogs were there doing the Casablanca act and a soldier lassoed one of them In form and color like a fox campJoe him and day after day he was led by some member of the company until the long fif teenhundredmile march was ended He tolerated the portion of the rations handed him but never smiled In re turn and merely ate to live Ho con formed to constituted authority as a matter of common sense and on the long steamboat trip down the Missouri to Omaha across by rail to the Pacific and up the coast to Oregon he was the same dignified dog
