unarmed over my wounded fathers body and tried With childish strength to tight off his assailant but though he escaped with life In him from the place where be s sues lowing spring he died This calamity deprived my mother and our family of n worthy and esteemed head of the c household his death being an Incident In the horrid Internecine strife that eventuated In the tragedies of the civil oldiI could ride any horse alive I had n knack of shooting straight and I knew something about herding cattle I z thought these qualities might earn me a living They did A firm of overland freighters Rus sell Majors S Waddell were at Leav f enworth One of them Mr Majors bad been a friend of my father I asked him for a Job as extra on one of his wagon trains The pay was 40 P montha fortune It seemed to me then The work was the sort usually Intrusted to a grown man and It uucfliit not only perpetual hustling but a lot of danger as well for the plains in those days were anything but free from Indians This latter thought frightened even my brave mother Boylike I was delighted at the idea Mr Major said he would take me r on as extra for one trip If I did i well I could have a regular Job I ro odved to do miracles as an extra The train was made up of twenty Ce loaded wagons each carrying 7000 pounds each drawn by six yoke of oxen and guided by a bullwhack ii u driver with a long loud cracking whip Then there was a bunch of loose cattle On this occasion the train vas made up of only three wagons nod we were driving a large heal of beef cattle to Fort Kenrny for the use of Colonel Albert Sydney John stow and his command who were on their way to Salt Lake to fight the Mormons I was only one of several extras Though we always let guard no Indians had appeared stoppedforthe prss wjiiiiii for the pot to bolls e lienrd a son thing volley of shots from a copfol Some bullets and a dozen or more arrows whistled luto camp Everybody had jumped up at the first shot Put three of our men tumbled over at once as If they had beoii tripped up Then a number of thliiTS happened almost too quickly to describe nllopJn otherJru us Our men gave them a warm welcome and sent them buck on the run nut the tight was not over Tho braves only cantered out of range There they were joined by oth ers They outnumbered us ornten to one We could not hope to stand against such a multitude We bolted for the South Platte river with the savages at our heels and found shelter behind the steep banks From C there we opened fire again and drove outIof range Frank McCarthy our boss said our one chanco was to follow the Platte river to Fort Kearny keeping out of sight under Its banks So the thirty i Avemile march began through knee i deep water and quicksand Half a dty ts swokept it up I was dead tired but h r was no time for rest or complaining i Just the same by nightfall my short Ir t legs wouldnt keep up with the proces t sion I dropped back little by little d IfstfU plodding on as fast as my aching 10 feet could move We thought we hadq i igiventhe Indians the slip but I stilla wasiand carried a slug and two buckshot i to each charge Tho moon had risen and I was try Ing to catch up with the rest Sudden t Jy In front of me and at the top of the Zilgh bank I saw against the moon the f head and high war bonnet of an In dine chief lie was bent double Tile mon ahead could not see him but he I load his gun lovolet at thorn I knew I If ho tired he could scarcely miss at I that range Some one of my friends De must bo killed I had halted at sight t I r of uni

was split by a roar as tho report echoed from bank to bank Down tum bled tho chief over the edge rolling over and over llko a shot rabbit till he landed plump In the water A yell from the band ho had led and a score of Indians swarmed up to the bank But our men drove them back and they gave up tho attack as a bad job At dawn we limped worn out Into Fort Kearny The soldiers there start ed on a wild goose chase for the In dians They were never caught The slashed scalped bodies of our dead were found beside the wrecked lootec wagonsWhen I was thirteen my mother was building a hotel for the use of passing gold hunters for this was late In 1859 when the gold fever swept America and all roads led to Pikes peak Our Salt Creek valley home lay on one of the most traveled routes Hotel building and furnishing are not on the free list So I wanted to help raise money for our Valley Grove House With an older boy names Dave Phillips I planned a trapping trip Winter was setting In when we startedWe bought an ox team and wagon to transport the traps camp outfit and provisions and took a large supply of ammunition besides extra rifles Our destination was the Republican river It courses more than 150 miles from Loavenworth but the country about it was reputed rich in beaver I acted as scout on Vie Journey going ahead to pick out trails locate camping grounds and look out for breakers The Infor mation concerning the beaver proved correct The game was indeed so plen tiful that we concluded to pitch a per manent camp and see the winter out We chose a hollow In a side hill and enlarged it to the dimensions of a de cent sized room Wo had seen no Indians on our trip out and were not concerned in that quarter though we were too good plainsmen to relax our vigilance There wore other foes as wo discov ered the first night In our new quar tersWe wcra aroused by a commotion In the corral1 whore the oxen werr confined aid hurrying out with our rifles we sound n huge bear intent upon a feast of boat The oxen were bellowing in terror one of them dash Ing crazily about the Inclosure and the other so badly hurt that it could not get up- Phillips who was in the lead tired first but succeeded only in wounding the bear Pan was now added to the savagery of hunger and the infuriated monster rushed upon Phillips Dave leaped bock but his foot slipped on a bit of Ito and ho went down with n thud his rifle flying from his hand ax he struck A bullet from my rifle entered the distended mouth Of the onrushing bear J and pierced the brain and the hug J mass fell lifeless almost across Daves body The ox had to be killed Daves ch fuse to square his account with me came n fortnight later We I v c i J I saw against the moon the head of an Indian chief I were chasing a bunch of elk when I- toll and discovered that I could not rise J- Im afraid I have broken my leg said as Dave ran to me Phillips had once been a medical r student and he examined the leg with a professional eye Youre right Bll tt- Iy the legs broken ho reported t Then ho vent to work to improvise I iplints and bins up my leg and this I lone he took me on his back and bore no to tho dugout Hero the leg was stripped and set In carefully prepared splints ana the whole bound up se urely He made a pair of crutches or me I n uy Tell you what I think Id better do said he Tho nearest settlement Is some eighty miles away and I can get there and back In twenty days Supposo I make tho trip get a team for our wagon and come back for you Tho Idea of being left alone and well nigh helpless struck dismay to my heart but there was no help for It and I assented Dave put matters Into shipshape piled wood In our dug out cooked a quantity of food and put it where I could reach it without ris ing and fetched several days supply of water Mother ever mindful of my education had put some school books in the wagon njjd Dave placed these beside tho food and water When Phillips finally set out driving the sur Tlvlng ox before him he left behind a very lonely and homesick boy During tho first day of my confine ment I felt too desolate to eat much less to read put as I grew accustom ed to solitude I derived real pleasure from the companionship of books Perhaps In all my life I hover extract ed so much benefit from study as dur 1 A bullet from my rifle entered flap mouth of the bearIing that brief period of enforced idleness j when it was my sole means of making the dragging hours endurable- A fortnight passed And one day weary with my studies I fell asleep over my books Some one touched my shoulder and looking up I saw ar Indian In war paint and feathers How said I with a show of friendliness though I knew the brave was on the warpath Half a score of bucks followed at the heels of the first squeezing into the little dugout until there was barely I room for them to sit down With sinking heart I saw them nC ter but I plucked up spirit again when the last a chief pushed in for in this warrior I recognized an Indian that I bad once done n good turn Whatever Los faults he never for gets a kindness any more than he forgets I an injury The chief who went I by the name of RalninthoFuce at I once recognized me and askedme why I was In that place This chief was I the father of the RalnintheFace who I In n later year klllerd General Custer atIthe memorable battle of the Little Bit Horn I displayed my bandages and

and with all my remaining energy I made an answering call My voice enabled Phillips to locate the dugout and a passage was cleared through the snow And when 1 saw 1 the door open the tension on my

of It should be on every washstand After eating If one hasat time to brush the teeth the mouth should be rinsed out with diluted dloxygen i a strong antiseptic keeps the teethI I from decaying and protects the top of the mouth and gums from soreness or from creating and emanating a dis agreeable odor The toothbrush should always be dipped In a little of It and brushed over the teeth and gums at morning and night even after tooth paste is usedThe latter merely cleans the teeth It does not disinfect the mouth People do not pay enough attention to the Inside of their mouths even though they may bo scrupulous about their teeth A Remedy For Choking Few people know that a very sim ple and effective remedy for choking is to raise the left arm as high ds possi ble which relieves the person much more rapidly than by the usual method of thumping him on the back says a physician Very frequently at meals and at play children get choked and the customary manner of relieving them is to slap them sharply on the back TJie effect of this is to set the obstruction free The same thing can be brought about by raising the left hand of the child as high as possible and the relief comes much more quick ly In happenings of this kind there should be no alarm for if the child sees that other persons or parents get excited the effect is bad The best thing is to tell the child to raise its left arm and Immediately the difficulty passes away Dont Snub Children Children lovo to be treated with tourtesy and respect They resent having their opinions and sentiments snubbed and parents might learn a good deal from them and about them It they would encourage them to talk more freely of all they think and feel We are hardened by the gathering years and we have lost our keenest ense of what Is the

Federal Publicity and More Supervision ADVOCATES NEW LABOR LAWS Employers Should Bear Burden of Workers Injuries Commerce De partments Head Declares Recom mends a More Scientific Distribution of Workers Secretary Straus In the sixth annual report of tho department of commerce and labor made public the other day pays particular attention to the problem of the unemployed government supervision of corporations and the relations between capital and labor The five years experience of the bureau since Its creation In dealing with corporate affairs says the re port has made It clear that the great est advance toward corporate reform must come through some general s stern of publicity The logical conclu sion from the work of the bureau thus far points to the Imperative need of u federal constructive system for the positive supervision of Interstate cor porations to tho primary end of se curls efficient publicity in corporate affairs Such publicity must be of the sort that Is adapted to the practical requirements of American public opin ion It cannot content Itself with the mere publication of masses of facts and figures The government must summarize and digest them and pre sent them to the public in the shape of brief reliable clear conclusions showing important corporate facts It Is becoming more and more ob vious that the work of the government in regulatlLg corporations should not be directed at the mere existence of combination itself but should deal with the way in which the combina tion powers are used so as to prevent as far as possible the misuse of these great Industrial forces Only such com binations as arc formed for wrongful purposes or such combinations as use their powers for evil should be brought under the condemnation of the law In suggesting a definite plan for a system of government control over corporations Secretary Straus says Such a system should have the following basic features It should be carried on by the fed eral government as the only jurisdic tion competent to handle a subject matter so entirely national in its scope and nature It should require a system of regular reports from all large interstate corporations to be made to an admin istrative olllce and should provide that that office shall have access to the rec ords of those corporations- It should further provide that that office shall publish the important facts as to corporate operations so far as they ore of public interest safeguard ing at the same time from unnecessary publication all proper business secrets So far as possible the system should be made voluntary rather than compulsoryIn for giving this publici ty corporations should be allowed to register under such n law so as to ob tain a federal standing and the public benefit of their position as concerns not afraid of scrutiny Finally such a system should recognize the fact that there cannot be both prohibition and regulation of combination at the same time and that if the government thus elects to reg ulate combination It must at least per mit a certain reasonable degree there of and recognize In law what has al ready become an accomplished fact In reference to employers liability and industrial Insurance Secretary Straus says One of the great needs In industrial relations in the United States is a rod leal change In tho law respecting em plovers liability Under our practice no compensation can be collected for Injury or death unless such Injury or death Is due directly to some negli gence on the part of the employer or one of his representatives or employ ees In probably the majority of eases no one is properly to be blamed for an industrial accident Modern industry is becoming increasingly more danger ous and a certain amount of death and injury inevitably results from many of its processes We should recognize that these accidents are and to a certain great ex tent must always bo a part of the regular cost of carrying on certain trades that they are as much a part of the business economically as the breakage and wear and tear of ma chinery that the expense of them should be borne by that business and distributed upon the public and con sumers like any other manufacturing costJustice dcniands that this burden of Industry should not be thrown upon thoso members of society least able to bear Itupon the victims themselves and their families as Is now the case The best practice In other countries fixes a definite compensation for death or for Injury based usually upon the earning capacity of the person injured or killed This enables the employers to calculate with some degree of cpr tainty the additional item necessary to be included In the cost 0f productio- nThoughan insurance system this item of compensation for injury becomes for thto individual Employer as doa trite and as readily calculable as IsJSre Insurancean item which Is every where miogBled as a legitimate ele ment IH the cost of ro4ectlon 1n the legljsktteB fher jragxtsted

contests crowd the dockets of the courts entail large ex pense on the employer and finally yield only a small pittance to the In lured employee or his dependents whim damages are actually awarded The law granting compensation to government employees passed at the first session of the present congress should be extended in scope so as to embrace classes of employees not now included and should be made more liberal in Its terms The compensation at present paid one years earnings is pitifully Inadequate where total dis ability results from an injury or where death leaves a dependent family- A government Investigation of sani tary problems Is advocated by Mr StrausThe national government should be as anxious and alert to protect the wage earners against the ravages of dlesease resulting from their work he sayslias it is to protect agricul tural products against pests and farm stock against disease Discussing the problem of the unem ployed Secretary Straus recommends a more scientific distribution of labor This can bo accomplished by the gov ernment he says in supplying Infor mation to all of our workers whether native foreign born or alien so that they may be constantly advised in re spect to every part of the country as to what kind of labor may be In demand the conditions surrounding it the rate of wages and the cost of living In the respective localities This would greatly aid In keeping large numbers of undesirable foreigners at home says Secretary Straus as many aliens now come to America with little money and a lack of quali fications to do tho work they expect to do I WOMENS PIE EATING CONTEST Required by Rules Not to Use Knife or Fork or Hands The latest fad among the women of Red Bank N J is pie biting It was started by the Daughters of Liberty of the Highlands and Is spreading raptly to other womens clubs and organi zations in Red Bank Several prizes already offered and won by quick pie caters are handsome and their possessors are exceedingly proud of them The fad threatens to put bridge whist In second place It Is not an easy task which is sot for the contestants The plan Is to get a bIg juicy pie preferably one filled with blackberries or huckleberries The pie Is quartered and tho pieces are placed on separate plates At a prearranged signal four women begin a race to see which can cat her piece of pie first What makes It particu larly exciting Is the fact that no con testant Is permitted to touch the pie with her hand or with knife or fork She must do everything with her mouth and nose If the pie slips off the plate she must push it back with the tip of her nose and then tackle it once more with her lips and teeth By the time sho Is through with it the Juice of the blackberry or huckleberry pie is distributed over her face The other women and the men who are permitted to witness the contests lend encouragement by good natured badinage and laughter The contest may be engaged In by any number of women If there are enough pies Thus far there has been no dearth of women eager to decorate their faces with blackberry and huc kleberry juice and to run the risk of throwing their digestive organs out of gear In the effort to win vases cut glass bowls chafing dishes and other prizes offered iI Acetylene Shells For German Navy Experiments arc now being carried out on German warships with acety lene shells which it is believed will take tho place of the electric search light used hitherto by warships These shells contain calcium carbide and the water can reach It through a tube The shells are fired by a gun built specially for the purpose On being fired the shell goes under water and then rises to the surface and the action of the water upon the calcium carbide pro duces tho acetylene light Each shell Is said to have 3000 candle power and will burn for three hours The great drawback ot the ordinary searchlight is that although It affords some pro tection from the unobserved approach of torpedo boats it yet makes the war ship using it an excellent target The now acetylene shell referred to will have the great advantage of lighting up a given space while the vessel that fires It will bo left In darkness Novel

farmers are taking ad vantage of it Despite the long drouth during the fall months the crops which were sown in the fall are growing rapidly and if favor able weather prevails during the spring months there will be a bumper crop of wheat From all accounts and the preparations being made there will be a recordbreaking acreage of tobacco this year Plant beds are being prepared and burned for early sowing of seed which means early plants and lots of them I Farmers Ore in fine spirits and working with a vim not seen in manyyears An ounce of tobacco seed contains from 300000 to 400000 seeds It is said that not more than 35000 good plants are available from an ounce with the best preparation of the beds and sowing Experien ced planters usually sow three times the amount of seed that they expect to need In selecting a site for a seed bed location exposure protection from frosts insects and parasitic diseases are to be considered A southern exposure is always best a southeastern exposure next then a western and lastly a northern or northeastern Where possible it is advisable to locate the seed bed near a pond a lake running brook or river because of the moisture and greater uniformity of temperature in such a location It is best where possible to do so to make the bed upon new land There is less danger from larvae insects and weed and grass seed As damp locations are more subject to parasitica and fungus diseases many growers prefer to make their beds for this reason on high dry warm soil near the house and keep it damp by frequent sprinkling An open space in the woods where the midday sun shines has always been a favorite location for a seed bed because of the protection the grass affords from the cold winds and the excessive drying out of the plants and soil Growers usually make it a rule to plant beds a week or ten days apart as a protection against unexpected cold and other causes of loss When a bed is killed out with tho cold it is immediately re sowed When the plants come up too thick in a bed they should be j developementjEach plant should be allowed at least a squaie inch of space for the roots to develop === The best size for a plant bed is 50 feet llong and not over three feet wide in order that all parts of it may be reached from either side The bed should be enclosed with a frame and covered with muslin In from six weeks to two months after the seed is sown the plants are ready to be transplanted to the field The thing for every farmer to do ia to work for quality instead of quantity A small acreage and good quality is much better than a large acreage and poor quality Make the quality and there will be no trouble about making the price Good methods skill and experience in cultivation careful wor minI and care in the barn and after curing is what makes your tobacco desirable The trust buyer the independent buyer and the small dealer all want good tobacco and will pay the price BLOWING IN THE YULE Quaint Christmas Custom of an Old Town In

I know says Jacob A Blls In bis article entitled Yuletide In the Old Town In the Christmas Cen tury At sunup while yet the people Wero at breakfast the town band climbed the many steep ladders to the

trailed when he marched at the tread of his menwas the town teller a very small but very martinI man But whether or no It was beautiful I have oevpr heard music since that 99 moved me When the last

his soul seemed even more squalid than the home of the recluse All of his baggage except n suit case had been left at the station He did not know what had become of his belongings In the former home of his father nor for that matter did he careI At the U building he ventured a diffident greeting to the elevator boy whom ho remembered The boy looked at him quizzically and nodded with customary aloofness Graydon found himself hoping that he would not meet Bobby RIgby Ho also wondered as tho car shot up how his father had managed to escape from the meshes that were drawn about him on the eve of his departure His chance had looked black and hopeless enough then yet ho still maintained tho same old offices In the building His name teas on tho directory board downstairs Graydons heart gave a quick bound i with the thought that his father hndI proved the charges false after Elias Droom was busy allII labors of two ablebodlcd men charwoman all of whom were tolling as they had never tolled
