Hope in prevent their marriage. Ile is distinguished for having discovered the a cosmic bean a a Plant capable of taking the place of All other food which however the late twin Kings fathers of Cli Amton and Millice had forbidden him to cultivate for fear of its Breeding laziness among the people. Grom line consults a sorcerer who advises him to give a Flower show in Kobol land Neutral ground a place abounding it All Aorta of unearthly people to which Prince Atta and Princess of an adjoining kingdom shall he invited that they May meet Millice anti abandon their marriage with whom the sorcerer suggests would quickly bring about family dissensions that would give Gro Milne the Crown. The sorcerer secretly rejoices however that he has suggested a Pun thai will defeat or Omune a purpose. The show promises to be a great Success. Fairies gnomes sprites genies dryads sirens and All other sorts of eerie Folk attend it. The cosmic bean Delight ail while the profusion of magic Flower is astonishing. Prince Atta by a High handed act toward a merchant offends the gentle Queen Millier but Doe a kindness to a Griffin to requite which the a winged monster insists that Atta shall ride his bareback in one of the races from which proposition however Atta shrinks in fear. Much interest for she liked to see the Fine action of a spirited horse and she was very sorry that listas ugly beast had won the race. She would have Neon much better pleased if her cousins Beautiful Charger had been the Winner not because he be longed to Cham san but because he was Imp such a Noble animal. Chapter ii rack Dat in Kobol land. Gro line was in a very Rood humor his plans appeared to be working admirably. Everybody was talking about his cosmic bean and even the Princess Lista who paid Little attention to such things had said that she wished it could be introduced into her country and then perhaps there might lie less said about the starving poor. Moreover King Chamiso and Lista were getting acquainted very fest and he had invited her to sit in his Royal Box when she was not taking part in the games. This was All very Well. If these two should marry there would be a great Chance for him and his bean but in regard to Queen Millice things were not going on so Well she had soon separated herself from Prince Atto and was now sitting alone in her Box Reading a Book until the games should begin. The Prince had not been invited to sit with her that was Plain to see. This was not at All satisfactory to Grom the hurdle rack. The. Princess and her Steed. The Princess was very proud of her Victory and her heart beat High at the congratulations which poured Iii on her from every Side. Quot i have a Colt at Home a she cried to Chamian a who is More fiery and wicked than this Mare with better i Tilers patterns Hocks and Cannon Bones and i Ani going to train him so that i can outdo even what i have done today a and she laughed triumphantly. King Chamian did not very much like to tie beaten but if he were beaten he was glad that it was Lista. And no one else who had come in ahead of him. She was a Fine spirited horse woman and he liked that sort of a girl but he could not help wishing that she did not laugh and talk quite so loudly and did not speak so familiarly to her grooms. There now trotted into the Arena a handsome Centaur both his Man part and his horse part denoting High Breeding. approached the Royal boxes and bowed to the occupants. Queen Millice was pleased with the courteous air and the Graceful movements of the Centaur and was curious to know what he was going to do. She beckoned him toward her. Quot have you no competitors a she asked. A none your majesty a replied the Centaur with a Bow and a smile Quot it old father a excepting line but it did not Dampen his spirits. It could scarcely be expected that grave and studious people like Milice and Atto could come together As quickly As the More Lively Chamian and Lista but if the Prince had any sense or wit at All he could not fail to make an impression upon Millice before the show was omit. The Gam were just about to begin when Gro line met Atto. A what is the matter with your highness a the minister exclaimed. A Are you not feeling Well a a not very a replied Atto and in the Hope that Gro line might be Able to help him he told him of the proposition of the Griffin. A i am afraid a said the Prince Quot to absolutely refuse his offer for if he is made angry there is no knowing what he May do. Can you think of any Way in which i can get oat of this scrape a Quot get out of it a cried Gro line. A a done to dream of such a thing. Hero is a Chance of performing an astounding and unheard of feat without the least danger in the world. It will not do for you to lose it. It will impress everybody especially Queen Millice with the conviction that although a Prince of intellect does not in general care for useless sports still when he pleases he can with ease perform a feat far above anything which the athletes have even thought poor Atto sighed. It appeared that to was in for it the games began with a hurdle foot race open to All competitors. Among those who ran were Stout legged Young men from Sanobar and Nus Tyria three Youthful giants from the mountains who were however too heavy to jump and broke Down several hurdles a lot of nimble brownies and Many other two legged Kobol Landers. A Genie with blazing eyes soon took the Iead often going Over two hurdles at once although they were a considerable distance apart but he was ruled out of tile race because his soaring flights were neither running nor jumping. Near the head of the Long line was the sorcerers Kangaroo who at one time made a Beautiful bound entirely Over a Nus Tyrian athlete who at that moment was Clearing a hurdle hut he was also ruled out of the race because he did nothing but jump and did not run at All. There were others who did not understand the rules and among these were several gnomes of the mines with Long beards and spindle legs who ran with great swiftness and went under the hurdles without so much As Bobbing their Heads never imagining that they were expected to jump Over those lofty bars. An afrdite won this race his Long Black shining body bounding and darting ahead like an India rubber Savage dipped in Oil. Next came a grand horse race in which each Steed was to be Ridden by its owner. And in this King Chat Ian and Princess Lista took part. The Young King Rode a Black Courser of the desert the Princess w As mounted on her raw boned Mare All fire and muscle with wicked eyes and blackout ears. There were about of other steeds mount Al by All sorts of riders. Among these was a Lively sprite be striding a Pegasus Colt but he was not allowed to enter the race because it was quite certain Itiat his horse would use his wings. Hie sprite was greatly grieved by this decision. And said he was perfectly willing that All the other riders should put up sails if that would make things even. Another rider was a ghost who had formerly been a celebrated horseman but he soon came to grief for his Boree imagining that no one was on his Back kicked up his heels and tossed himself entirely through the body of his rider and flirting his Tail through the separated portion dashed to one Side. Aud left the course. Chamian Rode splendidly and his Swift horse soon carried Bim to the head of the line but Lista was beside Bim and Lier wicked Mare faster and i soon took the Lead and kept was done and the shouts of the multitude proclaimed her the Victor. Queen Millice watched this race with Quot i do not understand a said Millice. A it is my intention your majesty a explained the Centaur a to Trot alone around this Arena and to Endeavor to beat any previous record of fast time and not Only this but to make such a record for myself i believe cannot easily be beaten in Tho the Queen was very much interested in the Effort the Centaur was about to make in this race against his ancestors and his posterity she liked a High ambition. Quot w hat is the quickest time a mile has yet been trotted in Quot she asked. Quot two minutes and eight replied the cents Quot re and by your majesty a permission. I will now Endeavor to beat and with Abow which he repeated As he passed the other Royal Box the Centaur began to Trot around the ring so As to warm himself for his work. did not go very fast at first but when he reached the starting Post he set off at a great Pace. His legs moved beneath him with such rapidity that they could scarcely he seen and his body Shook and trembled As if a steam engine were working at its highest velocity inside of him. Around he went the spectators almost holding their breaths As he passed until he shot by the judges stand and slackened his Speed. In an instant one of the judges washed at a tall blackboard and marked upon it in great figures 2 minutes and 7% seconds. The Centaur had beaten All previous records. Then went up a great shout from the multitude and for a time nothing could be heard but cheering and clapping. Lista and Chamian came Down from their Box and Shook the Centaur by the hand while Queen Millice beckoned to him to approach Lier. Pushing through the crowd that surrounded him arid wiping his heated face with his Handel the Queens Box. Win with his handkerchief the Centaur came to you have done Well a said she. A i congratulate you on your the Centaur bowed and thanked her. A but it is Only half a Success a he said. A it is True i have beaten the past but i must now Trot against coming again the track was cleared and the Centaur prepared for his second heat. This time he held a Stopwatch in his hand. So that he might see As he trotted How fast he was going and if necessary increase his efforts. Away he sped and at the half mile Post he held up his watch before him and then All could see that his wonderful Speed was increased. Of it had seemed before that a steam engine were working within him one might now imagine that same engine had broken Loose from All government and was tearing him to pieces As it hurled him Forward. The Peoples eyes could scarcely move fast enough to follow him. The judges were Pale with excitement As he passed their stand and then High on the blackboard where every one could see them were in scribed the figures. 1.59%. With a wild yell of delis audience prepared to Rush toward the of de Jiehe the whole Centaur and in a moment he would have been embraced and perhaps smothered by hundreds of enthusiastic spectators hut dashing to the Queens Box he stopped Only Long enough to say that your majesty is for posterity to and then galloped away out of the reach of the roaring multitude. The minister of agriculture had been watching Millice and was greatly pleased to see the interest she had taken in the Centaur. The Centaur. Would never accept such a substitute As that and so in great perplexity and approx pension continued his search he would have been glad to hide himself till night and then hurry Back to his Home. But he knew this would not help him. An angry Griffin could find him As Well in Nus Tyria As anywhere owe. Hurrying on and scarcely knowing where he was going Atto found himself on the shores of a Lake and moored close by he saw a Little boat. This pleased him to was tired and warm and to float Over the smooth water would rest and revive him. had not gone far when he heard the sound of Sweet voices singing and Tho music of harps. I toking in the direction of the sounds he saw four Beautiful sirens on the top of some High rocks. Atto was fond of music and rowed near the rocks. To by continued. I copyright 1891, by s. 8. Mcclure How to obey orders. An incident of obedience that resulted in a catastrophe. By rear Admiral Luce u. 8. N. Futek two weeks leave of absence As just related. I was ordered to the Owa Gena a third class Sloop of War. She was a perfect Beauty according to the ideas of Marine architectural Beauty of that Day. I was Given Cli Argo of a watch and a division of guns just As if i had been a lieutenant and was allowed privileges previously accorded to wardroom officers Only. I attributed All this to tile merits which had at last been discovered in me but As a matter of fact it was owing to being on Board of a Small ship which has certain advantages for juniors and to the Scarcity of officers due to the Large number of ships commissioned for the War. We were assigned with several other ships to blockade duty off Tampico for it was supposed that Small vessels under reply. It wan a to anxious night for All and poor Houser who had scarcely slept or eaten for 24 hours wandered about the deck like a perturbed spirit he was certainly very ill at ease. Early the next morning the Man at Tho Masthead cried out a sail How the news was hailed with Joy throughout the ship for it was riot doubted the sail would Provo to be the Uncas having our Captain on Board. But on nearer approach the strange sail proved to be the snapper. Brig one of our old 10-gun Brig belonging to our division but stationed to the northward of us. Tho two vessels approached each other rapidly and when within easy Range the snapper threw out the signal that she wished to communicate. On Reading this we immediately brought to when the snapper rounded to under our Lee and dropped nor gig. Soon after we saw her Captain pulling toward us. Being a lightly built and wiry Man. soon scrambled Over the Side and with a cheery Quot How do you do a and a Hearty shake of or. Houser a hand he announced that he had despatches for capt. Spanker and would like to see him. A capt. Spanker is not on Board a said or. Rouser with something like a groan. Quot to is on Board the senior officer s ship. Quot not sold was the rejoinder. Quot he left the Uncas night before last at a Quarter to ten and Here is a letter for him from copt. _ Udo Tough Nel who Lias gone to Pensacola. Only stopped to pick up the snappers mail. Poor rouser Toro open the letter with a trembling hand. It ran As follows Uncas at ska Friday. Drab spankers when you left the ship at to last night i quite forgot to return the Daguerreotype of our Mutual Friend you were kind enough to show me. Here it is. Esteem yourself fortunate indeed of you win the original. Soon after Yon shoved off our Lookout reported a strange sail. Judging from her suspicions movements i made no doubt she was attempting to run the blockade As our ship May have partially screened her from your people. I warned you of her presence by the usual signals and Hope you caught the Rascal. Yours in great haste. John the Reading of this note seemed to completely unman poor rouser. had been up for two nights in succession and could take no rest by Day. As the whole truth now dawned upon him his nerves gave was. And he groaned Iii agony of spirit. The surgeon Here interposed and placing his hand gently on his shoulder led him away to his room. gave him a sedative a rouser Tore open the a things go even better than i thought they would a he said to himself a it could hardly be expected that at a time like this when everything is in such a Lively hubbub that she and Atto could have a Chance to get interested in each others ideas about books and education but if she likes the trotting of that Man horse she is bound to care Ever so much More for the daring and courage of a Prince who rides a bareback Griffin. I never imagined that Atto would have such a Chance As that to ingratiate himself with our Queen. Truly i am having most excellent at that moment Gro line espied the Griffin who with his wings folded was Hui ring Here and there along the outskirts of the crowd evidently looking for some Ono. A do you know a said the monster coming up to the minister a where i can find Prince Atto our great mid air performance is set Down for this afternoon but it strikes me that the Little Coward has run away. But i must find him if i can for it will be a great thin for me to go through the act with a Bloode Prince on my Back a Quot indeed it will a said Gro line Quot and it will be a great thing for him too. I would advise you by no Means to perform without him and i will go now and help you to look for him. Prince Atto had not seen much of the performance in the Arena for he had been busily and anxiously engaged endeavouring to find some one who would act As his substitute in the Griffin performance every one to whom he made tile proposal declined with the greatest Pron Intress but a mischievous Imp of tile hot Springs who overheard the Prince endeavouring to bribe an afrdite wit i two hunches of bananas offered himself As a rider and said he would do the Job for a bottle of Ink and a squirt gun but Atto knew the Griffin foreign flags might run in to Supply the mexicans with munitions of War of which they stood in need. Late one afternoon the senior officer of our division was observed to be standing Down toward us with the signal aboard that he was bound to Pensacola and would take a mail for us. A mail bag was hastily made up which the Captain said he himself would take on Board. The senior officer and lie were old friends and an evenings visit would Provo an agreeable episode of Tho wearisome service on which we were then engaged. Quot keep a Bright Lookout for signals from the senior officer Quot the Captain called out to the first lieutenant As he was pulling away from our ship. Quot Aye Aye sir a replied Lieut. Rouser in a tone As much As to say Quot let me alone for for if there was any one professional virtue on which he prided himself More than another it was the Fidelity with which he obeyed orders. Quot obey orders if you break owners a he would say and As i had but recently served with ase of officers of the same school and had imbibed similar principles there was a certain Bond of sympathy Between us. As night closed in each ship hoisted her distinguishing lights. This was a necessary precaution for As we drifted to Leeward faster than our consorts the distance Between the two ships was gradually increasing. Eight Bells struck the watch was Sot and the first lieutenant received tile usual reports of tile various departments of tile ship after which lie retired according to ids custom to his stateroom. Still the Captain lingered on Board the Uncas. It was nearly four Bells when it was reported that there were signs on Board the senior officers ship of making sail. This was immediately reported to input. Rouser who hurried on deck and. Taking the Glass carefully examined the darkness. It was a Long time before he could even discern the Uncas and when at last he caught sight of Lier he expressed the opinion that she was still Hove to under Short sail. The officer of the deck seemed to be doubtful about it but the quartermaster who had been on the Lookout since eight Bells was quite positive that the Uncas had filled away and made sail. While the Point was still under discussion the signal was thrown out from the Uncas a a suspicious sail in sight a followed a Little later by the signal we had ourselves observed the lights of a strange sail and the entire watch were on Tho Alert. called out to Tho officers of the watch to a fill away a and Quot make sail a in obedience to the signal the men sprang to the ropes with alacrity and by the time the for Topsail filled the Quarter watch aloft had loosed the to Gallant sails and royals and we were soon running a Villi a quartering wind in the direction of the lights which had excited our suspicion. It was a Rule on the blockade that except when communicating Between ship Aud Shin at night All lights should be carefully screened. Hence it was not surprising til at when Lieut. Rouser asked if the Uncas was still in sight the answer should be in the negative. She had. Of course screened All her lights while in Chase just As we had done. We could no longer discern the strange sail it is True. But we had taken the Compass bearings on first making her out and As we got an occasional glimpse of her lights or at least As the men on the Lookout said they did there could be no doubt of our being on the track of a prize. Besides an occasional order to the Man at the wheel there was scarcely a word spoken. I could not shake off a certain feeling of uneasiness. The officer of the deck was standing on the weather horse Block. Going up to him i said a where is the Captain a a Quot the Captain is aboard the Uncas a he replied. Quot and whore is the Uncas a i asked. Quot when the deck was turned Over to me at 12 of clock a he answered Quot she was reported to be right my vague fears now began to take a Defi insisted upon his lying Down to rest and placed his name on the sick list As being for the time unfit for duty. Our second lieutenant now took command of the ship and after a Hasty consultation it was decided that both vessels should cruise about in search of the missing boat but she was never found neither the boat nor Ber ill fated Crew. Poor capt. Spanker to was the Pink of amiability7, and universally regretted. Ile came of a Lino old English family of which he was justly proud and traced his lineage Back to the Days of Duke William. His Mother was a Guise. The guises came of an ancient Norman line and Hie names of the spankers and the guises were to be found in the famous Quot doomsday Book of the conqueror a or if not there they were probably omitted by mistake. The celebrated sir spanker Guise was of the English House several of the members of which immigrated to this country in the latter part of Tim 17th Century. A Niece of tender years to whom the Captain was fond of alluding in terms of love and admiration subsequently Becaro the celebrated lady Gav spanker. There is Little left to Tell. Sailors passing Down that part of Tho mexican coast declare they have Reen during the night watches a battered storm beaten boat pulled by six gaunt seamen. And some say they have seen in the Stern sheets of the boat an officer standing up Aud madly waving an old fashioned cooked hat. I think i once saw Hie boat myself. We were in just about the same spot where years and years before i had watched with admiring eyes the Seaman like manner in which the Uncas had been handled and had noticed wit i gloomy forebodings Tho gradual Drifting apart of the two ships As darkness fell upon us. It was now a drowsy summer night the Light airs scarcely tilling our sails. Seven Bells had struck the Hail had been passed and my watch was rapidly drawing to a close. And still with a sort of fascination i kept recalling Tho old Days of the blockade and the various scenes i had gone through when suddenly i saw the missing gig a kind of phosphorescent Light enabled me to make out a barnacle covered boat and her ghastly Crew. The wind blew out the shreds of their tattered garments revealing tile Bones of skeletons beneath their oars were lengthened out to sweeps and depending from the Blades were Long ribbons of Bright Green seaweed. An old cocked hat the Bullion blown out in wiry strings was waving at me frantically while a Long and Mournful Hail came Over the sea ship ahoo of i i was just about to answer when a rough hand was Laid upon my shoulder and i started up in alright. It was Lieut. Yarnell my Relief. Quot what Light is that a i cried in no Little agitation pointing Over the ship s Side. That Light a replied he Iii a sarcastic tone Quot is the rising Moon and i believe you have been guilty of the court martial offence of sleeping on your but i have my own opinion As to that. Copyright 1891, by s. S. Mcclure Nile shape. Crossing Over to the other Side mid of Block. I found lieutenant rouser on the Lee horse Quot so Tho Captain has not yet returned a i said in an interrogative tone. Quot no a he replied rather Curtly. A wherein the world do you suppose he is a i asked. Quot where is he a said or. Rouser repeating my question somewhat sharply a Why on Board Hie Uncas of a and when. May i ask do you expect to pick him up a Quot that a none of your business nor of mine either for that matter a said lie. A a the signal was made to Chase Amli am going to overhaul that fellow ahead unless the signal is tins was said in a tone that admitted of no rejoinder so i quietly took or Way below and turned in. Daylight came at last. It revealed the truth that we were alone on the Waters there was Nota sail in sight the Chase had evidently doubled on us in the dark As soon As these facts were definitely ascertained Lieut. Rouser who had scarcely once left the horse Block ordered the studding sail to be taken in. The ship brought by the wind and we at once began retracing our Steps. This brought the wind and sea nearly ahead so that it was Nightfall before we had regained the position whence we had parted company from the Uncas. Our numerous night signals elicited no fifty years a fighter. Never six months of col. Chaves life but he saw bloodshed. By Charles f. Lummis. Hen i look Hack Over the strange career of my Brave old Spanish Friend col. Manuel Chaves whose weary remnant of a body was Laid to rest two years ago. Under the Shadow of the noblest Mountain in Western new Mexico tile exploits of Many heroes who were handier to the Fame Raker seem a trifle tame. Known and touching a scar. For Tho last 15 years of his life he suffered untold agonies the result of his awful wounds and the years of exposure and hardship but he met this More merciless foe As calmly As he had met the Apache and when at 74, the flickering soul went out. It was calmly As a Little child a. The Little town of a Colleta where Manuel passed his boyhood was never at peace in the first half Century of its existence. It was out and alone from the other loading Rifle of enormous calibre was never excelled by the finest modern arms that tried conclusions with it. In All his Long life a we jew lib a a Miqu huh Iha months at a time War Ever without warfare a be was known to miss but one shot. And never did lie have to shoot twice at hear or Deer and Seldom More than once at human foes. I shall never forget my mingled amusement and Awe at an incident which occurred when lie was 72 years old and suffering fearfully from a Cataract in ids Eye. We were out with his Gran Sosi Rodolfo Otero a Gallant lad and a Fine Rifle shot. Rodolfo had a Fine there were Only two left Spanish settlements and in the very heart of the Navajo country and it was a fearful sufferer at the hands of the indians it was from Cebo Lieta that Young Manuel started when he was 18 years old on his first expedition though he had already see ii enough of War at Home and was accounted among the bravest of the Drave. With his eldest brother Jose and 14 other Young men he started for the Canon de Cusco. 150 Miles to the Westward m the stronghold of the indians on a trading expedition. What a commentary on the times in which i they lived this seeking a Market among Savages from Wii Ose murderous assaults the traders were in constant peril even while at Home. They were attacked at night in the Canon de Cusco and All were killed save Manuel a who was left for dead with seven arrows in his body and his Indian servant Rahe who was also fearfully wounded. Alone and on foot they started on that fearful journey homeward. Pahe died of his wounds in Manuel dragged himself alone the rest of the Way hiding by Day from the Savages crawling on by night followed by sneaking coyotes that never left his bloody Trail tortured with thirst and pain with no food save the Cactus fruit until at last a faithful servant found him fainting on the last Ridge of the san Mateo and carried him Homo upon his Back. When he recovered from these wounds he was engaged As guide to a party of traders from Mexico to new Orleans and thence went to St. Louis with a Young cuban who finally robbed him of All he had in the world. W thou he returned to new Mexico and settled in Santa be but in 1840 had to Fieo to Utah on account of political following year he was recalled and Butin command of an expedition against Tho utes whom he thrashed soundly. The invasion of new Mexico by the american forces in Hie mexican War was not opposed and the territory became part of Hie United states without bloodshed. Very soon thereafter came the a Taos rebellion a a Small but fierce uprising of apaches and Pueblos in the most Northern of the Pueblo towns and Manuel played an important part in suppressing it. In a fearful hand to hand struggle too he saved the life of his commander capt. Zierau St. Vrain afterwards owner of the 4,,000-acre St. A rain Grant in Colorado. A Gigantic Apache had his knife at the heart of the prostrate St. Vrain when Don Manuel shooting a foe who was almost upon him. Wheeled and crushed the Skull of St. Vraines assailant with Tho barrel of his ponderous Rifle. In 1855 he led a regiment of volunteers on a six months Campaign against the utes making a Brilliant record therein. Iii 1857 he accompanied Gen. Lorings command in the War against Cuchillo negro i Black knife Hie most redoubtable of All Apache warriors. To captured the Savage chief with his own hand in a desperate night attack in a gloomy Canon where his scouts had found the Camp of the Hostiles. Gen. Loring was greatly elated by this capture but the prisoner was murdered by the officer left to guard him a turbulent Mau who afterwards met a violent death. Iii i860, when a Large band of navajos made one of their characteristic raids on the Rio Grande settlements and drove off 50,000 sheep. Col. Chaves pursued them wit i 14 mein he overtook the Hostiles at Nightfall at Ojo de la Monica Aud routed them but in the morning found his Camp surrounded by several Hundred navajos. From Dawn till dark of that desperate Day the 15 heroes withstood the wild charges of the swarming Savages each fighting from behind his tree. One by one the Brave new mexicans Sank Back on the red soaked Earth bristling wit i arrows and at Nightfall Only two of them were left col. Chaves and roman Sanches a both fearfully wounded. A company of soldiers from fort Craig arrived just in time to save them. In that ghastly struggle col. Chaves had tired his Clumsy muzzle loader 80 times and for every shot an Indian or a horse had fallen. had two bullets left when the arrival of tile troops ended the fight that was the kind of War they had on the Early Frontier in a dozen other Indian outbreaks before Aud after those to which i have so briefly alluded col. Chaves distinguished himself by the same Cool bravery the same dauntless will and the same matchless skill As a Marksman. When Tho War of the rebellion broke out col. Chaves took command of Tho 2d regiment new Mexico volunteers and did most Brilliant service in this out of the Way Corner of the Union. To soother Man was due so much credit for the decisive Union Victory at Glorieta which drove out Hie invaders As to col. Chaves whose Brilliant and reckless dash captured the rebel artillery and destroyed their whole Wagon train. The eyes and hearts of the East were on greater battlefields nearer Home and to this Day few realize How much was meant by that Quot Little fight which drove Sibley and his guerillas Lack to Texas and saved new Mexico Colorado Utah Arizona and California to the Union. When col. Chaves returned to his lonely Home at Ojuelas it was Only to find that the indians had despoiled him of everything his horses and cattle his 30,000 sheep crops and ally and left him penniless a blow from which he never fully rallied his affairs though his Industry never left him in want. After new Mexico a share in the War of the rebellion was Over there was still More than two decades of frequent Indian outbreaks within Lier Broad Borders in most of which col. Chaves was a prominent figure. Atone time his lambing Camp at the Balada was Quot jumped by a Large Force of raiding apaches. The few shepherds were too badly frightened to fight much and All would have been killed but for the coolness of Don Manuel. Posting each Man behind a tree with a Promise that he himself would shoot the first who dared run Aud they dreaded his matchless aim even More than they did the indians he took his 10-year-old boy by the a ill a hand and ran up the Hill a few rods As a feint. The indians seeing his flight dashed straight into the Camp without their accustomed preliminary manoeuvre to see of what stun their enemies might be made. Quot As one grabbed up col. Chaves priceless Navajo Blanket from beside Tho fire he fell sprawling wit i an ounce ballot through his brain. Another snatched the Blanket Aud col. Chaves called to Ono of his companions to shoot. But when he saw the poor Fellows hand trembling saving his commanders life. Loved Here yet his name Seldom reached to the great outside world of newspapers and historians and today he fills the grave of an almost unrecorded hero. Yet i suppose there never was a More remarkable life. For Over 50 years he was almost constantly warring against the apaches comanches navajos and utes. Over 200 of his relatives were killed by indians. participated in More than too fights and carried a scar for nearly every one of them. His body was such a network of ghastly Cicatrice that scarcely could you Lay your hand upon him anywhere without so that he could scarce hold his guru the colonel shouted a wait dont he hurriedly rammed another charge into his old muzzle loader and although by that time the Indian had got so far that he Felt himself Safe the unerring Bullet caught him As he ran and Tore his neck nearly in by this time the shepherds had recovered their senses and gave the indians such Gallant resistance that the latter soon withdrew carrying away some valuable horses but no scalps. A. What a Rifle shot the withered wiry old Man was even when i knew him. Iii his old age new Mexico has never had another such Marksman As he was in his prime and his six foot muzzle Winchester with which he did some extremely Clever shooting. Quot try it grandpa one kept urging the worn old Man Bent and wasted by disease. had never trusted our modern Magazine guns but at last yielded to Rodolfo a entreaties. A go put me a Mark at Yon he said pointing to a gnarled tree a full Hundred Yards away. Rodolfo ran Over and considerate of his grandfathers age and conditions fastened to the tree a paper some six inches across. Quot a a cried theold Man calling him Hack a what thinnest thou Higito that i am As the moles Here take thou this Bullet Ana make me a Mark of it on that paper a Rodolfo did so. My eyes Are none the worst in Tho world but i could not even see that Lead Mark less than half an Inch in diameter. Col.

Dangers attending the Hunting of the Crocodile. Habits and fighting qualities of this ferocious saurian of Florida. Pour Hunters have a Lively skirmish with one of the infuriated brutes. Detroit free press it is not generally known that Florida is the Home of the genuine Crocodile As Well As of the Alligator and that both Are close neighbors in the extreme Southern portion from shark River to the lowest limits of the Everglades. The Florida Crocodile is known As the cuban species and while not so Largo or fierce As its Congener of the Nile it is no despicable foe in a contest. A Crocodile differs from an Alligator in having a longer and narrower head a More pointed snout fewer Teeth a less Plethoria Lindy and having two holes in the snout through which two Teeth of the lower jaw protrude when the Mouth is closed. A glance at theron ont will therefore enable a Novice to judge whether the saurian he sees on the Beach is the familiar a Gator or tile dreaded a croak Dill of the Cracker and negro. The Crocodile is Mclimore maritime in character than his Congener being rarely found in fresh water and Seldom far from the seashore. It is a bold swimmer and thinks nothing of making a voyage to Cuba in the Sto Miest weather. It feeds mainly on fish and having better Teeth than the Alligator is not compelled to follow the lat terms device of burying its food until it becomes putrid before being Able to devour it. Having greater courage and being far More Active than its Congener it is considered a much More dangerous adversary by All who know its habits and is therefore carefully avoided by those not badly in want of one. It lays its eggs on the i Lorida coast and when the Young appear the Mother will fight any living thing that threatens their existence. Motherly affection is As Strong in a Crocodile As in a grizzly Bear and no punishment can induce either to Retreat whilst protecting their offspring. This trait in the saurian gave a party of us who were Hunting a j. So tolf re Rev new a not soon forget. And fishing along the shark River not Long Igo a lesson we Snail not soon forget. Bour of us were cruising in a three ton Sloop and Whilo coasting close along Shore Early one morning we spied a Crocodile apparently asleep on the Beach. To capture it became almost a passion with us immediately but How to do it was the problem As we wanted it alive. After a Brief debate we decided to run Tho vessel As close to Shore As possible enter the Small boat and attack the reptile with harpoons. We Drew near the Beach before the saurian espied us but Ere we could land it it dashed for tile water at its Best Pace after uttering a Gruff cry of warning or Defiance. Fearing it might escape two of us jumped into Hie mite of a Dinkey we towed behind and pulled ashore for dear life. We reached it just As tile reptile plunged into the sea without raising even a Ripple. Quot come a my companion exclaimed in a tone of tile utmost despair. Quot not All a i replied pointing to a struggling mass of Young reptiles which were crawling and tumbling Over Hie Beach. A let us capture some of them a i observed As i ran towards one about 18 indies in length. A but bite a he answered. them Back of Tho head a i shouted As i grabbed my prisoner around the neck despite its hissing and threatening aspect and shoved ii into the capacious pocket of my shooting jacket. made a timid attack on another but instead of grasping it promptly lie was Content to make feints and to pull Back his hand promptly whenever Tim creature hissed. This assault caused All the others to begin hissing and ejecting their Musky breath in jets of anger. I had grabbed the second youngster and was to return to Hie boat when i saw Hie Mother emerge from tire sea and hasten toward my timid Friend Lier body was swollen with anger her Little pin head eyes were fairly ablaze with fury Aud her head extended straight Forward much like that of a greyhound when in Pursuit of a Hare. "1/iok out. Tom. Or tile Mother will catch you a i exclaimed. faced about saw the ferocious brute and without saying a word ran at a go As you please gait for the Dinkey which was Only a few Yards away. tumbled rather than got into that Craft and was about to push Oil when i shouted that i walled to enter also anti get a Harpoon. reluctantly stopped hut the moment i stepped in he pushed away from tile Shore wit i frenzied vigor. We had not got ten paces however Ere we Felt a violent Shock which threw both of us Fiat on our i arks knocked the pole out of Toms hands and sent Hie rifles which were lying on the Stern sheets overboard. Before we could get on our feet we heard the crunching of the Bow and a moment later saw the head of Tho Crocodile peering above the port gunwale. A a we re gone my timid Friend exclaimed. Quot not yet a i shouted As i took a hurried Ann with my revolver at Tho head of the reptile whose weight sunk the Bow almost to tile Waters Edge and sent a 38-calibre Bullet into ids head just above the right Eye. This seemed to Render it More furious if that were possible for it made another Effort to Board us. Tho moment we touched Hie deck our Best har Pooner launched his weapon at the furious saurian Ami struck it Iii the neck. This caused it to swim Seaward for a minute or More. But becoming weary of its Load it turned suddenly and Attal ked the Sloop. It actually bit a piece out of the solid Wood and gave Tho sides a whack with its Tail that caused every to in Lier to tremble. Ort rising to bite the Bow Hie second time we planted another Harpoon in its shoulder with such Force As to Send Hie barbs to the Bone. This induced in to hasten Seaward once More at a Pace one would hardly deem credible. It managed to get More of its ugly scaly Hoilo Over the gunwale and would undoubtedly have come aboard had i not emptied the contents or my revolver into its head. I did not do much damage but i checked the Advance temporally which was All i expected to accomplish. The reptile Sank for a moment or two then emerged to renew the assault but before it could get its fore legs on the gunwale the Sloop Drew alongside us and we clambered aboard As nimbly As monkeys. It towed us for four Miles at least then hastened to the Bank of a Small mangrove Island where it landed. Tho moment it touched the Beach we tied its muzzle with ropes hoisted it aboard and carried it in Triumph to Charlotte Harbor where it was sold to somebody who wished to place it on exhibition. Whilst discussing its assault on the Dinkey soon after its capture our Veteran Sailor exclaimed a Why Durn it i reckon you a fight mighty hard too of you knew somebody had your youngsters in his pocket and was kidnapping pm a a that fact partially accounted for the fury the Tat of usual. Y a of the animal but i subsequently Learned that our experience was by no Means an our captive was 11 feet Long and estimated to weigh j 50 pounds. What Gotham shop windows disclose.

That Black Batiste wit i All Over silk embroidery in colors and deep Rich Borders Are to tie much worn. That Batiste of All colors richly embroidered Are seen everywhere. That Early Spring clocks Are still moderately rough. That gowns Are to be slightly Fuller and More draped than heretofore. That close Flat trimmings Are still preferred. That summer hats will be veritable Flower gardens. That the newest gloves have one Button and gauntlets of moderate depth heavily embroidered. That handkerchiefs a they Are pocket handkerchiefs no longer Are More ornate than Ever. That it takes a Long purse to buy most of these things. Facts about the peerage.
