I was looking into tho smoko cloud. which now and then lifted for an instant, and I saw the burning logs of the house scattered to the four winds by tho explosion. Miller knew the reds would set tho building on fire, and he had placed one of tho kegs of powder where it would do tho most good. Wo counted livo Avarriors killed or disabled by the explosion, and Miller killed two" others before the crowd got out of range. Tho house aviis tho best shelter from which to worry us, and they had lost by destroying it. Tho strength of our fort could be seen at glance. TJ10 Indians AVro wise enough not to attempt a rush, and the whole party vcrc also impatient to push on to other scenes. Six or eight more arrived soon after the explosion, and presently wo saw them making ready to move oil'. A general volley was tired at us, the Avar whoop Avas sounded, and tho brief siege was raised. It Avas half an ho.ur before avo ventured out, and not an Indian was in sight. Wo could, however, sea 'all columns of black smoke yhiehcverAviiyAvo looked, and it was plain that the Avholo section was in the hands of the Indians. We could not at first make out why they had left us, but Miller soon concluded that they knew what they Avero about. Wc had no means of escape loft to us. The savages Avero on every side, and if avc attempted to Iciia'o the neighborhood we should fall into tho hands of some of them. It aviis quito safo to leave us tliero whilo they pushed on to butcher the defenseless ones.

Why the Democrats Can Not Logo It UnJest Thiy Fall to Fight. "Xo taxation for surplus" was the President's admirablo message to Congress and tho country. In suite of tho protests of tho ablest Republican thinkers and journalists of tho country, tho Republican politicians and Presiden- tial candidates have- joined issue for tho campaign on this point. Both Blaine and Sherman, difl'eriug widely in other tilings, liavo agreed that taxation for surplus is not unconstitutional; not unjust; not illogal; not extortionate; not dangerous to financial .stability; not destructive of commerco nnd irade; not onerous to tho mercantile classes; not burdensome to work-innot an oxtoVtio'ri'ironi tho whole pc'Mj'ie. Never before wore- tho lino m sharply drawn on this question at (lie opening of a Presidential campaign. Never boforo was tho Republican part' forced"to mass its strength to defend tlio most untenable point in it3 fallacy; r.evor-bcforwas the Deal- s; u platform and from the stump against tho accumulation of the surplus and tho continuance of oppressive taxation, but in Congress they havo contented themselves with opposing tho consideration of bills brought forward by tho Democrats for tho abolition of reduction of unnecessary taxes. On tho great economical question of tho time they havo not attempted to formulate any positive policy. When the President was confronted with a vacancy on tho bench of the United States Supremo Court and undertook to fill it by an appoiutmont from tho circuit in which the vacancy existed, they pursued their modern tactics of obstruction. They raised tho groundless and ridiculous objection to tho appointment of Judgo Lamar that his sympathies aro Southern. In fact, they mado a sectional plea for his rejection by tho Senate when the appointment was necessarily sectional, as all appointments to tho Supremo Bench must inevitably be, on account of the sectional division of the country into judicial circuits. After obstructing tho action of tho Pr. sident as long as they wore able .a halt was called upon their absurd folly by threo Senators of ihoir own party. elecIn tho tion case the obstructive idea took possession of the minds of the Republican leaders in Congress. Although two of the most prominent Republican members of the Committee on Elections had joined tho Democratic members oi tho committee in reporting to tho House that Mr. Thoebo had not mado out a case, that Mr. Carlisle was clearly entitled to his seat and that thero was no ground for a reopening of tho case, and although these Republican members of the cominitteo addressed tho House in speeches unequivocally and emphatically in favor of confirming Mr. CaiTslo in his seat, tho petty trick of obstructing the adoption of tho report ol tho committeo was resorted to by the Republican side of the House. Somo thirty members were paired and absent and the Republican with a leaders of the House, breadth of statesmanship that would do honor to a moot congress of school-boyseized the opporunity . to leave the House without a quorum by sitting silent in their seats whon tho vote on tho contested election caso was taken. When brought to book they based their obstructive action on the false ground that tho case ought'to be reopened in order to enable Thoebo to take further testimony! A most transparent subterfuge, but sufficient in tho judgment of such eminont statesmen as Tom Reed and Tom Browne to cover their deceit. Mr. Thoobo has had more than a year to tako his testimony. As was proved boforo tho committee, his attorney had plenty of money to rako over tho district for evidence. But ho utterly failed in' his attempted assault on tho election returns which gave Mr. Carlisle tho seat, and two honest Republican mombers of tho Committeo on Elections declared that Mr. Thoebo had not laid any ground for a reopening of tho case. But tho party of obstruction, tho moribund, decayed nnd crumbling Republican party, played its pantomimo to tho qm. Ilarrisburg (Pa. Patriot.

Little Mrs. Boerum, married at seventeen to a formal gentleman in the white goods trade, with a vast idea of liis own importance as a landed proprietor, who inherited his place out of town from his grandfather, found one or two things in her new home that were not comfortable. Firstly, no city servant would go out to IVveril on the Peak, because of the dearth of eligible beaux in thatlocality, and her domestic assistant was Maria, a big young woman, who had stipulat- "Oil, dear! And I want my blue muslin!" sighed Mrs. Boerum. "You needn't cover up your faco from me, Mrs. Boerum," said Marin. "I know jest how you look. Here, I'll put some bay rum into the wasli water, sind you bathe your faco good. How quarrelsome men is, to be sure! Now, shall 1 go Tor Peter Pink's aunt? Sho washes. Or shall 1 wait until tomorrow? 1 an't hired to laundry, you know?" "Oh. wait until said Mrs, Boerum. "Very well; and I'll mako you a cup of tea," said Maria. "And don't you worry, but let him do tho apologizing. Put your hair up into crimps, and don't look forlorn That's my advice." Mrs. Boerum took the advice. She put up her hair in two long crimping pins, and thus added much to d tho ugliness of her face, and went down to her solitary lunch when tho bell rang. Sho was feeling a littlo bettor, when Maria, hurrying in, uttered tho mysterious words, "She's come!" and vanto-nig- tear-spotte- p ' 7 that she was to be "treated respectful," and who considered herself greated has come?" Mrs. Boerum asked herself; then reflected that of course it was the washerwoman. In her then condition of mind she felt that it would bo a relief to scold somebody. Maria would resent the liberty by taking French leave, but the washerwoman surely dared not; and, on the instant, out she rushed to the front porch, where a fat woman, in a shabby old muslin and a fisherman's hat, sat fanning herself. "So you've come at last?" asked Mrs. Boerum. "I confess I had given you up." "Well, I was a long time coming," said tho woman, "but better late than r '! ly her lady's superior in intellect. "Indeed," said Mrs. Boerum, shortly; ' Secondly, Mrs. Bfttlcrpnt had not "that't your opinion, is it?

"Am I to understand you never." A v 1 -,-' The little woman kept herself dressed for the occasion that never came, and hardly dared leave the house lest she should miss the honor, which grew daily more improbable. It was a terrible mortification; moreover her spouse perpetually "nagged" her on the subject. "It must bo your fault, some way, my love," ho said one morning at breakfast. "I confidently expected Mrs. Butterpat would call on you amongst the first. and the Butterpats have been friends for You'vo said something generations. in your reckless way that has been carried to her, or sho'd have called .on viy wife, as she always did on my mother, though of course your family is not known in tho neighborhood." At this Mrs. Boerum grew angry; remarked to Mr. Boorum that she considered her folks quito as good as his, and set tho cream jug down with such a whack that she chipped a bit off the bottom. And then and there they had the first quarrel of their matrimonial Thor-Boeruni- seriously, ma'am?" "Yes," replied Mrs. Boorum. "And now you can go, for of all unbearable, sot-uindolent creatures I over met you are the worst." "You appear to bo crazy," said tho stout woman, coolly. "Is she, Maria? That, or intoxicated, I should say. "Well, I'm off. I certainly never had an experience like this before. Poor Boorum! he must have a nice life of it. p, Good s And tho stout woman marched, her fisherman's hat Hying, her loose shoes crunching down tho gravel walk; and Mrs. Boerum drew a big breath, looked at Marin, who.stoadying herself against tho wall, stared at her and said: b', Maria." "What's tho matter?" "I never did!" cried this "Tho idea! How durst talk that way to her? I was all goosellesh hand-maide- n, with fright. Wiry, I be, I'm so obfusticated; and she'll go and tell oveiy living soul how you talked, and they'll wonder at you from now to doomsda3". Sho'aiu't never boon spoke so to before." "Time she was, then," said Mrs. Boerum. "If a woman goes out washing, sho ought to keep her appointments; or, if she is really kept at homo by somothing necessary, apologize reto her employer. 1 sha'n't spectful put up with such things, if tho rest of tho ladies do, not if I go without an3' washing at all." Maria staggered back against tho wall again. "Lawful sakes!" sho cried. "Did you think that was Mrs. Sudds?" "Of course. You told mo so, Maria," said Mrs. Boerum, witli si sudden change in her voice, and a sudden horror in her eyes. I dunno now where u life.

Merchant Traveler. - - important branches of work connected with securing tho largest amount of profit in tho dairy. One of these is good cows properly eared for, and tho other is in the proper handling of the milk, cream and butter after it is secured. It is not all in tho cows as with many of these a much butter product could be secured if proper caro was given to the cows. In fact, in many localities it is not through the lack of cows, but that of proper caro that we fail to realize tho prolit that wc should. Even with a good cow it is possible to make a considerable difference in the yield, not only with the feed, but also tho .sheltering, the watering and the general care. And when it is through tho lack of this that wo fail to dorivo the benefit we should, tho remedv lies within ourselves. When it is tho fault of tile cows, a change ma' bo made necessary, but if the fault is with the feed and care, we 1111.31 change the plan of doing this. There is really less excuse when the fault is in the caro than with any thing else, because to a considerable extent it is tho easiest remedied; wo can give good feed and good care with very littlo difficulty, anil often with a very littlo difference in tho expense. If wo must change tho feed of the cows or change tho management of tho milk jf and cream, considerable extra expense may bo entailed oven if tho chango is made properly, but in giving good feed and care, a very light increaso will bo necessary. It is n6t altogo'.hor tho fault of tho cows, or is tho business as a a rule suffering so much from tho lack of good cows as from tho proper feed and caro to secure the best results. Thoro is no question but that in many eases tho failure to realize a fair prolit from tho cows is directly traceable to the failure to provide good feci and give good care. And thoro is no occasion for selling ofl'lho cows wo have until bjf a fair trial we have ascertained whether it is our own noglect or the fault of tho cows to give us a profitable supply of milk. If with ronsonnblo good feed and euro wo' fiiil to secure a profitable amount of milk, then it is best to make a change, but until this io the case, keep what you have got. Ar. J.'
