Blackfoot News (Newspaper) - May 23, 1896, Blackfoot, IdahoEffect of an eruption. People and cattle hurled under a Shower of stones in the went indies. But the bombardment in some places must have been terrible. I have seen tracts of land once smooth and Fertile plantations now covered with the great rugged stones so that you have to pick your Way among them As you pass. Many of them Are four or five feet Broad. Of course these Are Only the larger stones the Little ones were buried under the soil Long ago. Stones seem to have fallen All through the eruption sometimes in one place sometimes in another. Not Long after the first eruption of smoke a negro boy was tending goats on a Hillside i have seen the place often. Suddenly a Small Stone fell near him and then another. He though that some of his playmates were pelting him from the Hughes and so began to throw stones in return. But the contest was too unequal for it was the Mountain that was throwing stones at him and Ere Long he fled in terror leaving his goats to their Fate. I have no space to Tell you the whole Story of this great eruption How Many plantations were ruined by the Shower of stones and far worse How fifty or perhaps a Hundred people were killed by them with great numbers of cattle and horses How the lava dammed Back a Stream and forming a boiling Lake which broke through after a month and came hissing Down the Valley overwhelming a whole negro settlement How ashes were carried five or six Hundred Miles out to sea and Barbados eighty Miles off. Was darkened by the Cloud so that people had to Grope their Way at noon and use candles in their houses now the explosions were heard hundreds of Miles away and it was thought that they were the guns of a great Fleet or army. But one thing i must Tell you. When the eruption was Over and people could ascend the Mountain again they found Tae Crater the one or. Bell had visited All changed. Instead of the smoking Cone there was a Lake of a All our trunks had to lie the custom House inspect opened Tih a to a it we Mem. 1 had any Cologne 01 cigars de. By see in pm. 1 done to see Why they Call them custom House officers though. Their costumes weren to anything wonderful. It took pop a half an hour to get Liis trunks All through because he said the inspector did no to know the language. Pop says he asked him what nation he belonged to and the Man said tie was Vinglish and pop told him head never heard of any Sulci people where did they live. In hug land the Man said. Whereas that asked pop and the Man nearly fainted and then pop gave him a half a Crown and then pop gave him a half a Crown need t open any More trunks because a Man As ignorant As he was would t have sense enough to try to smuggle anything in anywhere. After the trunks were All passed pop asked a Man where the baggage car was and that Man could t speak English either. He asked pop what and pop says again where s the baggage car and just then an american that had Boon Over before says to the Man he Means the Luggage Van and the Man said 0i1 by did no tee is so. Pop says lie thinks that s Welsh which is a language he never liked anyhow. The Only Welsh thing lie Ever liked was a Rabbit he said. Lots your name asked the baggage Man. Drake says pop. Well your Van is the seventh car up. It s marked with a d. Do you know a d when you see it pop said he guessed so. Head seen one once and he had an idea that it looked like a p without a Pedestal or a b Cut in two. That a it. Said the Man. Well you put your Luggage in the Van marked with a p without a Pedestal and when you get to London you can go and claim it. But suppose somebody else claims it said pop. That a his affair and yours not mine says the Man and he walked off. Then pop found out that they Don t give checks Over Here and he said he guessed the reason Vas that they preferred Harper s round table. Three Lon a nil excellent Yyi re is.

Not Long ago in new York City a fire broke out in the upper stories of a great apartment House. Tavo Young women one a Young lady visiting the family 111 a certain Home on the sixth floor of the House Tihe other a maid in the same Home were confronted suddenly with Black volumes of smoke red tongues of flame and no Way of escape but by the Iron ladder that lung along the Side of the House. Then were two Little children there and some valuable papers and though the Young women could not save every thing they took the children and the papers Down the tire escape with calmness and courage.

And besides Aore of 1# this separated from it Only by a thin Wall they found a new Crater even larger it was nearly a mile Long three quarters of a mile wide and 800 feet deep with sides like Walls. That pit was blown out by the great explosion. I have stood Between the two craters and looked Down into them. The new one is Green and pretty now with Bushes and ferns and no signs of fire but the old one is a hideous depth of Gray Green water through aah High bubbles Are always ascending and bursting into Sulphur fumes at the top. Sometimes the wind carries these fumes Over the neighbouring plantations for Miles around As if to warn people that the old tires Are not yet extinct. I Hope it May be Long before they break out again a a at Byma raw a by Herbert h. Smith in st Nicholas. Greek Ami roman swords of the swords of the three great nations of Antiquity the assyrians the greeks and the romans we Are Able to get a remarkably Clear idea from the carvings they have left on tombs and temples. The assyrian sword had a slim two edged Blade merging into a a handle that was scarcely More Thau a Haft. The decoration was limited almost entirely to carvings of the Heads and bodies of animals so placed assay be seen from the pictures As to give a singularly striking and Distin a Guia hed character to the weapon. In the Many Lively skirmishes that took place around the Walls of Troy during the famous ten years siege the greek Warrior carried an admirable sword. The rather Long two edged Blade with us gradual swell that tapered gracefully to a Sharp Point has been likened very aptly to the form of the Sage Leaf. These outlines were so Good in themselves that any extra decoration seems out of place. We find Hoa Vever that delicate tra Ceries on the Blade and Silver studs set thickly in the Hilt were favorite ornaments. Although this sword avas shortened in later years its Beautiful outlines were retained and the sparing decoration of Blade scabbard and Hilt was remarkably simple and artistic As befitted the greek race. But the sword that gained the greatest renown in classical Antiquity was the Broadsword of the romans. The weapons commonly used in times before the Christian Era Avert the Lance and the javelin. It was with these that the unshaken strength of the far famed macedonian Phalanx had been maintained against Many a fierce attack. The Phalanx consisted of foot soldiers drawn up in line of Battle four eight sixteen or Twenty five ranks deep. The men who were heavily armoured held their Shields close together Edge to Edge and their Long Spears tilted Forward to protect the rank in front. The Broadsword of the roman legionaries however those sturdy Fellows who knew How to fight Avith a fortitude and tenacity that has Nerer been surpassed taught the greek a new lesson in military tactics. A successful formation of the Phalanx required careful preparation and a fairly level country was absolutely necessary. When it avas possible to command these conditions the compact Square of Spearman presented a front that it was almost impossible to break. But in a sudden encounter or fighting at close quarters an effective use of the Broadsword did not depend upon any definite order of formation and it brought into play quite another sort of courage. Men then no longer fought As machines it was the personal bravery of the individual and not the dumb stolid resistance of ranks of human beings formed into a living Wall that won the goodly sword a by Mary Stuart Mckinney in st.
