NAMING  THE  UNITED  STATES- fr�nKnii is the name of a tribe of Indiana of the Dakota family, an offshoot of the Osagea Tho word is defined as "smoky water;1' also as "good potato." Oregon sigutiles "river in the west.11 According to others it is from the Spanish word oregano, or wild marjoram, which grows abundantly on the Pacific coast. Michigan appears to have received its name from the Chippewa words mitch, gTeat, sawgyegau, lake. The title was once applied to the two lake*, Michigan and Huron. Maryland was first called "Crescontia," but in the charter for the colony it was styled Terra Maritc, "Mary's Laud," in honor of Henrietta Maria, queen of Charles I. Mis&iteippi Li called after the river bearing the same name. The title comes from the Indian words mlche sepe, translated by some as "Great river," and by others as "Great father of waters." Kentucky comes from the Indian term, "Kau-tuek-keo," meaning "the dark and bloody ground." Another authority says the state is named after a phrase signifying "at the head of a river." Texas has beeu said to be of Spanish origin, but the best authorities say it was the generic titln of numerous tribes of Indians who inhabited the region wheu De la Sailo landed at Mautagorda bay in 1087. Florida, which signifies "the flowery," was named by the Spaniards under Vonce de Leon in allusion to the aspect of the country, and also because it was visited by them on Pascua Florida, or Easter Sunday. Illinois takes its name from its principal river. According to Albert Gallatin, the term is derived from the Indian word leho, lini, or illini, meaning real or superior ineu, tho termination being French. California-Fir.-L mentioned hi the writings of Bernard Diaz del Costello. tin oflloer who served under Cortes tu the compjest of Mexico. Tho name Is possibly derived from the Spanish word califa, caliph-Colorado-From the Spanish word signifying red or colored, probably suggested by the color of the soil in certain sections. North Carolina was named in honor of Charles II, of England, the feminine form of Charles in various languages being Carolina. Now Jersey in 1020 was claimed by the Dutch as port of New Netherlands (now Now York). Afterward it was named New Jersey by Lord Berkeley and Sir George Carteret. The name was chosen m honor of the latter, who bad been governor of the island of Jersey and held it for King Charles in bis con-test with parliament. Now York was first called New Netherlands by the government of Holland on account of discoveries in 160U by Henry Hudson, who was in the oraploy of the Dutch East India company. Subsequently It was named New York after the Duke of York, who received a valuable charter of laud in J&U from his brother. Charles II of England. Tennessee is derived from Taunasioe, the Indian name of tho Little Tennessee river, meaning "River of tho Big Bend." Iowa li from tho Indian term meaning "the beautiful land." Another definition is the "drowsy" or "sleepy otios." Iudiaua is named from the Indians, tho state having been the scone of many and varied experiences with the red men. Minnesota-From an Indian term meaning ''cloudy weather." Arkansas-From Kansas, with tho French prefix arc, a bow. New Hampshire-After tho County of Hampshire In England.

No, he would uot; tho amount of faro could bo saved. Theu soma one re* minded him of his heavy satchel.

For the llrst few weeks after we went into camp at Talo, away up iu Upper Uurmr.h, ou the head waters of tho Imwaddy river, we had a pretty still time of It, and what with lighting dacolt* and locating sub-military stations nlwiut tho country our ha mis were full. Then, just about the time things began to settle down, a now difllculty arose, for what little cultivated land there was had been robbed and plundered by the dacoiUi, ami so the poor Burmese found themselves iu danger  f starving, and the worst of it was it looked as though wo might havo to starve with them. Tho Madras Pioneers, whom I com mam led, were a bravo aud (sturdy lot of fellows, but I saw ouly too plainly that their scant rations were having a serious effect. For awhile native traders had been coming down the Irawaddy ui boats an their way to Maudalay, carrying gold leaf aud indigo, sweet oil and pickled tea, and, what was of far more value to us, cocoauuts and bananas, oggs and. rice; but the dacoitu along the wooded liauks of tho river waylaid and robbed them so often that they were beginning to find it more profitable to stay at home, and a trader's boat was now a rare ami curiae thing. "Well. ('apt. Charlton," said a cheerful voice as I sat smoking a cheroot before my tent one evening, "pondering over th*? food problem, are yuiii Don't worry. I have found a sure solution for thnt," Tho speaker was Lieut. Red vers, aud ho looked very happy aud contented as. be pulled out a camp stool and sut down at my side. "1 have a splendid idea," he went on. ''Half ado/en of thoso cowardly trailers were in camp this morning during your nbseuco beg ging us to give them some protection. It seems the dacuitn have robbed two boats in tho |>ost week. There is a whole nest of the wretches about ten miles above here. These traders circled round to avoid them, aud thoy report a boat load of stuff lying at a village twenty miles up tho river which they ore afraid to bring down. Now my idea is this; Suppose we take a picked dozen of men and go back with theso fellows. Theu we hide ourselves in tho boat, Btnrt down the river and when the dacoitsj come out to board us wo pop up and give them a leaden reception. I assure you they will trouble no more traders' boats.ond in future wo will feast as royally as the Rajah of Muuuipore himself. Now, what do you think of that, captain fr I cxprcsso.I my opinion with a hearty cla p on Rtdvers' back. The next morning I picked out half a dozen good men and, taking Red vers along, of course, wo put ourselves under the guidauco of the Burmese traders and started for the village, twenty miles distant j That is, it was twenty miles by the water, but it was at least thirty by the way our guides led us, for wo circled away back from 1 the river, crossing over a couple of mountain ranges and wading through bamboo swamps and thorny jungles. It was a perilous trip for such a handful of men and we were all glad when we arrived at the village about nightfall. It was a mere trifle of a place, but it was i encircled with a strong stockade of teak logs, ; and the natives had made such a heroic defense on the several occasions when it had , been attacked by dacoits that the robbers had ceased to molest it.   We found the boat moored along the bank.   It was a typical Burmese barge, tho very counterpart of a | toy Noah's ark, with shelving roof and sides I constructed i�f movable shutters that opened downward on hiuges toward tho water.   It was propelled by a big stern paddle and the j steersman occupied a little covered platform ; that was built up over tin- roof at the roar of the bout.   We delayed our departure until , nt'U'i midnight so as ui reach the decoy position ub at out on the deck with the boatmen, for it was necessary to keep a sharp lookout. The profile of the shore could be seen but dimly, and the steersman found it difficult to keep the center of the stream. It was a long and tedious ride, but at last tho owner of the boar, whose name was Hang, ^olntod out a faint glimmer tu the east aud told us it was tlmo to get ready. It grew gradually lighter, until from my knot hole iu the shutter I could make out the trees ou tho shore quite plainly. Wo continued to float on very gently with tho current, the suspense growing all the while more painful. "Was it possible that our ruse was suspected <" 1 began to woi-der. Suddenly a shadow darkened the doorway and Sang whispdrcd in softly: "W� are near the place now, sahibs." Every man took a final look at his rifle and mode ready to cast loose tho shutters when 1 Jshould give tho signal. We dropped down stream for a huudrod yards or more In daad alienee, I was falling into utter despair when suddeidy a dark figure stepped out on tho bank uud hailed us loudly in Burmese, bidding our boatmen come peaceably to shore at once. Bang made reply. "We are poor boatmen from Myoug," ho cried, in well sim-ulatod tones of fear. "Wo ure taking a cargo of rioo to Tamo, aud wa pray that you will let ui go by unharmed." Tha only answer to this appeal was a derisive laugh and a sterner command to steer for tho bank at onoe. Bang made no further reply, and aa soon an the robber saw we ware going to float on by regardless of his commands he gave a loud shout, and on the instant from tho shadow of the bank three lung pomioa canoes snot out miecr witn Bar-age lookiug follows, who paddled directly for our boat "Thoy are coming," I cried, axoltedly. "Make ready now, men." Redrers was down at the other end of the Una with rifle, in readiuess, and I saw that every man had one trembling hand on the bolta of the shutter. The du^oiUt ware so close now that I could sue their faces plainly. Thoy were armed with both guns aud spears, aud as they drew a Utile nearer they let fly u volley at our boatmen, which drove them inside, happily without Injury, It was time to aot. for the lpnjc coupes were close, to the oocr ana jikiW oy rne u-niinpnanv ir. �.  my hands, I was just about to order tho men to give them another volley, when a loud cry from tho steersman overhead attracted my attention, and looking down tho river 1 saw a sight that uearly frore my blood. Less than a quarter of a tnilo distant a i>crfoct fleet of canoes were moving out into the stream from both shores, and I saw that we were hopelessly cut off. Two of our boatmen at ouce plunged overboard and gaming the right bank disappeared in the jungle. 1 confess I was badly scared. My first sensation was surprise at seeing such a largo force of dacoits. Then 1 realized our peril. In this clumsy old craft we would be overwhelmed by sheer force of numbers, with no chance of escape. It waa useless to attempt to reach the shore. The men with faces slightly blanched were waiting my ordera. A desperate struggle and a soldier's death wero nil that were left to us, and I was just about to tell them so when a glance at the sullen countenance of our captive inspired me with a brilliant idea. I know these dacoil-s were cowards at heart and, turning to the chief, I mustered up my scanty knowledge of Burmese and raid fiercely: "You dog,of a robber, if your men come a yard nearer I will shoot you on tho spot," aud I pulled out my revolver as I spoke, "Listen," I said. "An Englishman never lies, and you know it. Bid your men go back to shore and let oar boa ts go by unmolested. When we are five miles below here you shall be sot free," The robber shook his head sullenly, and I saw with alarm that we were fast drifting down into the horde of canoes. I sprang forward and seized him by the throat, pressing the cold muxzlo of the revolver against hia naked breast. "Stop, stop, sahibs." he cried, falling on his knees. "I will do your biddiug; only spare my life." "Make hoste," I cried, "or you die on tha spot." He advanced trembling to tho front of the boat firmly held by Redvers and one of the men. and in a loud voice addressed his friends, motioning them backwards as he spoke. My kuowledgo of Burmese was scant, but I could readily make out that howasoBsm-' ing them that bis life depended on their going to shore and letting the English sahibs go by unharmed. It was a moment of dreadful suspense and for a time the issue was uncertain. Tben to my unspeakable joy tlm dacoits with every evidence of l*afflod rago paddled sullenly to shore, some to the right bank, some to the left. Amid silence that was intenso we drifted right down into that hornet's nest, Redvers clutching the dacoit chief, watching the dusky face for tin- least sign of treachery, the men nervous but alert with rifles actually at full cock, the remaining Burmese huddled together in the bow stupid with fright, and Iu tho crow's nes.t overhead the steersman guiding the big paddle with hairbreadth nccjracy. It was a period of horrible uncertainty, and when at last the clumsy croft floated right between the double rows of camx-s the suspense was almost unln-'arahte. Fruni both side** scores of dark savage faces watched us sharply, keenly, so close, indeed, that one could see plainly their greasy looks, the ornaments glittering ou their half naked bodies and tho weapons firmly clutched in their quivering hands. We seemed to move by inches, and I could scarce repress a t=hout of impatience. Every eye was fixed ou the chief, but iu the face of Redvers1 revolver that dusky individual, who held all our lives in his hand, dared make no sign, and so we drifted on in solemn nilence. I knew how fervently the savages longed to let fly their deadly jnwars. Even the chief, doubting bis-own influence, was visibly disturbed, and I think he was as much relieved as any person present when the boat floated jjast th# last bunch of canoes and the open river lay ahead of us. I wheeled round, rifle In hand, but not a daci.it stirred, and in this position 1 remained until a curve in the river hid the enemy from view. We held on to our prisoner until we reached a point five miles below whore the river narrowed aud grew swifter. Here, truo to my promise, 1 embarked him in shallow water, and, wading to shore, be plunged into the forest without a backward glance. We had little fear of pursuit now, fur tho country was morw open uud the cunVut was strong, aud before noon we safely arrived at Talo uud anchored our precious boatload of provisions along the bank. It turned out to have beeu a very fortunate expedition ufter all. The presence of such a force of dacoits In tho neighborhood was a very timely discovery, and when they crept down on us after dark that same night they met with such a defeat as assured a quieter condition of affairs for some time to come. From one of the prisoners who foil into our bauds I learned to my. chagrin and dismay that the dacoit chief whom I had held in such brief captivity waa a notorious robber, on whose head more than one price hud boon set. 1 readily understood then bow groundless had been our fears whon we floated through the gantlet of the robbers, aud I thuddered to think bow close I had stood to that sanguinary monster. Still, even hud his identity beeu known, honor would have compelled 'mo to keep ray promise and release him. In a very short time Rixlvors' prediction camft true, for, though small bodies of dacoits still lurked in the inaccessible snots along the river, they maintained a very frigid and distant demeanor towards the traders' boats, aud before long we wefe living every whit as royally as his royal highness, the rajah of Munnipore,-Philadelphia Times.
