A Peculiar kind of warfare. Making War on indians is unlike any other War making in which armies engage. Finding them not lighting them is the difficult problem to solve. If the Reader will consider that the theatre of operations in any Indian campaigns whether in Wyoming Dakota the Indian territory and Texas or arizonan is about As Large As the new England states with new York added Tomt each of these possible theatres of War is an uninhabited wilderness that they Are without roads and often impenetrable for hundreds of Miles because of arid deserts or impassable Mountain ranges Tomt while All parts of each territory Are to the Indian As familiar As the paths of the Home Orchard Are to the Farmer and his children it is and of necessity must he an unknown land to the Best info Ned White Man that in these trackless wilds the Indian had no fixed habitation that upon being discovered by his enemy the direction of the Trail lie takes is a matter of indifference to him that where night finds him is his Home and that his subsistence and Stith him if All these and collateral matters depending on them Are considered an idea can be formed of How is to make successful War on the Indian. In War the Indian though partially civilized reverts to his worst phase of savagery. Much has been written As to the false sentimentality which crops up in the discussion of the Indian question by humanitarians and lovers of fair play which it is not intended Here to repent. Hut it May properly be observed that it is worse than nonsense to urge Tomt the Indian regards the White intruders As the de seen dents of those who two centuries and More ago came to this country and by might deprived the indians of the lands and Hunting Fields and is thro Tigh Liis children pursuing the a red mail toward the setting san 1 the Indiana a knowledge of his a tory scarcely extends hey on d i one generation.

A new y Ork court has established the Validity of a will of a citizen of j kindly invitation that state who a left ids entire pro. Perty about $90,000, to the United states government. The new York Law prohibits bequests of More than a certain proposition of a Many ses. Tate to the religious or charitable institutions when he has near relatives living. In other words a Man can. Not buy Pence for his conscience by adding another wrong to those he has before committed. The first duty of property is to provide for those naturally and legally dependent on the Man who owns it. The Law will not even allow a Man White living to impoverish himself so As to leave his family in want. I this is Otten in practice it is because exist a Quot Laws Are not enforced. W hat to cannot legally do while living the Law will not help Quot him to do when dead. But giving to the government where a Man has no near relatives and those More Distant i hat lie 1ms, is another matter. The court probably held in this Case Tomt the Man was right in thinking to As nearly related to the entire american people and bad As much obligation to them As he bad to the few Distant relatives who alter death would claim what they had while living done nothing to prove they could properly Limaye any interest a people who do nothing for their a night of storm ust lock up your rooms Marjorie and go Down with a for a Lew weeks a said miss Alise Walton coaxing by.

One of the fashionable guests at Stanley s wedding who stole several valuable Silver spoons from the room in which the wedding presents were exhibited was arrested and sentenced to two weeks imprisonment.

From the nov Yor k Tribone. Perhaps tute of the Saddest and most pathetic eights is to see the Bright joyous fun Loving Brilliant Dandy of 24 or thereabouts transformed into the spiritless taciturn and shabby family Man of Middle life. We ail know of such transformations As mysterious As they Are unexplainable. In a open demos Thackery has painted for us with a master hand some of these evolutions downward in the clerical profession when the Brilliant oxonian or whom everybody predicted a Mitre somehow or other missed t he running and conies out seedy hopeless Recluse in n country parsonage whose Oery appearance suggests a life of tragedy. 1 know a number of such cases. There was Goodfellow of Harvard. In All his class and Brilliant Fellows they were too there were none so Brilliant As he. His conversation sparkled with jest and epigram and his Good natured Buh Omie won him a Host of friends. He was a Good ruses and set the fashion for a resourceful wife. A Good Story comes from one of the Mil districts of an sex swell who married a Young woman with a rep.

Recently tie paternal hearts began to relent and a proposition was made through an accommodating Friend that the Young sex swell should divorce Ali Quot objectionable daughter in Law and receive in return not Only the parental Blessing but a goodly part of the parental exchequer. When the matter was Laid before Modgie she advised her spouse to accept the generous Reward offered for the a inconstancy of Man a suggesting that it would be advisable to Replete the empty coffers a a what a a divorce More or less lets have one by All Means Divide the spoils and get married Over now could n Man an sex swell have a More accommodating wife.

The train had been standing on a Side trek n few minutes when a swarm of Large june lugs attracted by 1he car lights flew in through the windows. In five minutes the seats were nearly covered with bugs and they began to Craw around the legs of the passengers and to prove otherwise unpleasantly officious. In five minutes the insects had Possession of the two cars and the passengers turned out. The problem which now presented itself was How to get the pests out of the cars before the train started. A fire Ivas suggested and while the passengers gathered Brushwood and kindled a roaring Blaze one of the Bra Kemen went into the ears and put the lights out. The r use was successful the bugs deserted the cars and the passengers went Back shutdown the w windows and sat in darkness until the train new York comm Erciso advertiser. She was just a poor music Tencher and the Prospect of staying in town while nearly All her pupils were out of it during the sultry Days of Midsummer and using up the Small sum she had while earning nothing with which to replace it was not a pleasant one while on the other hand the alternative offered her of spending her enforced vacation in a Cool airy cottage by the Seaside was indeed very very tempting to the tired hard worked girl. But she was sensitively proud and shrunk from the thought of receiving the Manv benefits which some of her wealthy acquaintances and particularly miss Alixe Walton were so willing to bestow upon her. A come what do you say Marjorie a persisted Alixe after allowing a Lew minutes for consideration. A but of course it will be a yes a since that is the Only sensible decision which you could possibly make. Very Well then a giving Marjorie no Chance to contradict Here a we Are going Down next week and Early in the following week we shall expect you to join us without and so with n kiss and one of her most coaxing smiles the pretty imperious daughter of wealth and Laski ion won the coveted answer from Merj brie a self reluctant lips almost before the latter was aware of it. A the proud Little Bohemian a laughed a Fiss Alixe softly under her breath us she ran lightly Down to the Carriage waiting for her at the curb. A she would almost rather swelter Here in town and perhaps half starve in the bargain Almu to accept anything that looks like patronage. A but.

And she might have All those comforts and luxuries of her very own if she Only would for in a certain that Parke Griswold a a a pausing abruptly with one Dainty foot on the Samoge step As a new idea seemed to strike Here a Why did no to i think of that before or Griswold will be a charming addition to our Smalt Circle Bat it will never do too Ive pretty miss Marjorie a hint of Tomt a it was one of the most charmingly picturesque spots imaginable on the Atlantic const. A Little Back from the Ocean stood the spacious Walton College its Long windows everywhere opening upon wide and pity verandas and thence to the Broad stretch of velvety Lawn with its Brilliant Flower Beds and sparkling fountains. In vivid contrast Between that and the sea Lay the White Shingle Bench White just below the smooth Shore changed to one of rough and rugged grandeur great Rocky Points and Cliffs jutting sharply out into the moaning Waters. Just now the whole picturesque scene was hooded with the soft Golden afterglow of Sunset and the Beauty of it bad drawn every body out upon the Lawn or the Beach below. A Little apart from the others the soft rippling Waves Curling almost to their Leet stood miss Walton and mar Orie Trevor the latter looking District singly Lovely in one of the simple White gowns that she usually wore and a Bright coloured Light wrap drawn gracefully about her shoulders. They were hitting Newny in merry girlish fashion when Alixe turning her head suddenly caught sight of a. Tall masculine figure striding toward them from the Lawn. A dear me a she exclaimed with a petulant Little air of vexation which seemed charmingly natural. A there comes or. Griswold. I shall love to postpone my Story until a More convenient time a ooh done to go Alixe a cried Anjorie almost pleadingly laying a detaining lined on her companion s Arm As she turned to hit away. Alive laughed. A i dear if 1 did no to know that the gentleman does no to take the least bit of interest in my society. And it is ones self de trop really can t do it even to please you and the next moment she was flitting up the Beach past or. Griswold who merely pausing to Exchange a laughing word or two with her hastened on to join Marjorie now standing silent and motionless her Back toward him Aud her Brown eyes hushed terrified accents fro lip. Then Evert Long else was lost of a and forgotten in the exciting that followed. A Noble ship had struck on the rocks and some of her hapless passengers went Down to a watery grave while others were saved by the almost superhuman Effort of Strong Brave men on Shore. And not the least among them in heroism was Park Griswold. White and awestruck Marjorie Trevor went Down and watched them at their Noble work. With a curious thrill at her heart she Bent Over one tall still form that la Ark Griswold had rescued from the Waves and Laid near by upon the Beach. One look and she turned and grasped her lovers Arm. A it is lies it is Basil Thorne a Sha whispered with blanched lip. A this is the Lover 1 told you of last Parke Griswold uttered not a word in answer but As he turned Back to his Orji of heroism the look on i Brave handsome face told Marjorie All the Story of his suffering. A she Knelt beside that motionless figure on the Sand scarcely breathing herself As she saw the signs of life returning to it. At lust rhe Blue eyes opened and a smile of ineffable happiness ining believe be i would though it was Luminer the hand some Marble White face. A Marjorie a he whispered trying to draw her Cheek Down to his own a we will never part she asked no questions then Only tried to bring him Back to tile and strength. But inter she Learned that tho Story of his marriage had been Only an unfounded Rumor. What her life might have been but for that night of storm and terror Marjorie shudders to contemplate. Although she says that because he saved her husband s life her affection for Park Griswold is almost Strong enough to make Basil jealous. But both Basil and Marjorie Thorne live in the brightest Hopes of seeing pretty darkened Alixe some Day console the Noble fellow for i disappointment. Aud when that occurs and just now the event seems very probable a the cup of their happiness will in deed be Story paper gazing wistfully out Over the sighing sea. For awhile he stood beside her talking Rotthe Sunset glories All about them then they strolled on Down the Sands toward the craggy Points below. A let me sit Here Marjorie a he i said and she started a Little at that 1 name which he used now for the first time. A i have something to Tell you i have waited so Long so patiently but you will listen to me now Marjorie a with tender pleading in his voice a i must Tell you what is in my she sunk Down mechanically upon the Large Fiat Rock which he had designated her lips pressed together her Sweet face very Pule and a. Pained half frightened look in the Large Brown eyes which were so persistently averted from the tender glances Lient upon her. In silence she listened to the avowal which she could Parry no longer. But when it was ended and he turned to her with flushed expectant face awaiting her answer she Shook off the spell and spoke to him in Low tones which though Sweet and pitying As music fell like ice on the passionate fever of his heart. �?o1 am sorry a she answered simply. A by a of know i have done All 1 could to avoid this or. Griswold. I understand All that it would mean to me your love accept it gladly if if i had a heart to give you in return.

If j must lose you a he stopped for his voice failed him. Am he looked away from the Lovely face beside him wit a changed expression on his own that touched Marjorie to the heart. A there is very Little to Tell a she answered sadly. A the Story is Brief and simple enough but it killed my heart. 1 loved once or. Griswold with All the strength and passion of my soul.

But trouble came Between us we parted in bitter anger and he went away. He vowed that to would put the Ocean Between us and never look upon my face again. I have heard since that he was married to a Beautiful English girl and a that is All. But you see now Why 1 have no love to give any one. My heart is dead a she repeated with infinite mourn lowness her great., soft Brown eyes turning again to the sea that was growing Gray and lonely in the deepening dusk. But Parke Griswold a handsome face had undergone another change before her Little Story was ended. It was Bright and flushed once More with hopefulness. A even after Alt that Marjorie i implore you to be my wife a he entreated his Strong voice full of a passion and tenderness that seemed irresistible. A the is gone out of your life forget him try to love me instead.

A that woman is frightened because she fears those prancing horses May jump upon the sidewalk and crush her beneath their Iron shod boo s. But what does she do under the circumstances does she with woman so ready wit climb that Fence or get behind that big Hogshead a a no sir As you see she is desperately engaged in pressing the Palm of her right hand Over her right ear and looking frightened. Iter object in standing so still and retaining that position of her right hand against her right ear is to escape from the crushing hoofs 01 that big team. But that s Only a specimen of this so called a woman a wit.

A a my Lile is so hard and lonely a she reflected As she listened to his burning words a Why should t i give it into his keeping he loves me Well and truly and perhaps 1 might forget in time i might even learn to love him who can fell a a lot my have t Ime to think it Over or.

But to Morrow perhaps or at most before we return to am so together they walked Back almost in silence to the cottage. Alixe was watching for them at the window. A the has proposed to you i know he has a she exclaimed under her breath drawing Marjorie aside with her own dark eyes sparkling joyously. �?o1 knew he would when i saw you walking Down toward the Point. Of Marjorie what a foolish girl you will be if you done to accept him a a Job Alixe done to Pense Don task me whispered Marjorie the slight flush that had warmed her Cheeks suddenly dying out. And then she escaped to her own room to think out ii she could the problem of her future. The next night came Down dark and Stormy and terribly desolate beyond description the moaned and roared and dashed upon the rocks below with awful fury sending the White Spray in a blinding Shower Over All the Beach. The loneliness the desolation somehow made Marjorie realize what her own future must to if she put love from her forever. A it is like my life a she murmured shuddering by. A nah i had it est take love now while it May be mine a and she slipped still half hesitating Down the stairs with the thought of seeing Griswold and giving Liim her answer while the mood was on her. Just As she reached the dining room a deep sound came booming. The sound which is so thrillingly awful on such a night at this the minute gun at sea. It brought every one to his feet and every Nee there was White and horror stricken.
