Make a rough Chart for them on a piece of paper which one of the men had in his pocket. I his done or. Knight told them he was in a hurry and would have to leave them. At this the Man who had chiefly addressed him and who had acted the part of a Leader told him that he would have to stay with them until they were ready to leave that they did no to care about him telling what he had seen and to prevent his doing this they proposed to keep him with them. It was useless to argue and so he submitted with the Best Grace possible. About two of clock in the afternoon the men got ready to Start and to or. Knights infinite Surprise told him they wanted his Money. This demand however he was disposed to resist until the persuasive revolver was again brought into use. He had twelve dollars in his pocket and this he gave them. The Leader then produced a piece of rope and while his companion held a pistol against or. Knights head he proceeded to tie his hands behind him. This done he was pushed up against a tree and securely fastened to it. All this was done without a word. When or. Knight was firmly lashed to the tree in a Way that it was utterly impossible for him to release himself the Man made a half Way apology saying it was a matter of life and death with them and that they could net afford to be overtaken. A a but you Are leaving my Here to die. You surely done to wish to do that a a somebody will come along after a while. If they done to you must holler till they hear with that they Rode off taking or. Knights horse with them. Of course he tried to get Loose but the rope resisted All his efforts Touloose it. He took the robbers advice and yelled until he was hoarse. But it did no Good. He was left alone in a desolate Bottom and night was falling fast. Then it begun to rain. He said he had read of men being tied to Trees before and had often wondered what were their sensations. He understood it now perfectly. In the meantime his family had become alarmed and by Daybreak his wife had aroused several of their neighbors who had began to search for him. She knew he had gone j to the Bottom to Hunt cattle but what part of it had Only a general idea. Her fears were that he had been thrown trom his horse and was killed or desperately injured. The animal he had Ridden was wild and Young and this fact intensified her apprehensions. So his neighbors turned out and began the Hunt for him through the rain of that what will be to or. Knight an Ever memorable sunday. He had yelled himself hoarse and his loudest Halloo could not be heard Over too Yards Distant. Fortunately however toward Nightfall they found him More than half dead from want and exposure and to use his own words a a As a bout a sorry a looking sight As a Man Ever he was taken Home to his half frantic family and was so far recovered on monday As to proceed in the direction of Boonville to see if he could hear anything of the villains who had left him to perish in the Woods. But his search in that direction was in vain. Indeed they made fast time and were probably hundreds of Miles away before he started in Pursuit. But or. Knight says that he will never die satisfied until he meets with those men. The a big villain a As he Calls him is the one he is particularly anxious to see. The probability is the men were horse thieves and had stolen the horses they were Riding. Or. Knight however thinks they were murderers or criminals who had broken jail and were hurrying out of the country. Taken All in All it is one of the most remarkable cases that Ever happened in this part of the state or indeed anywhere Yazoo. The easters Wab. London nov. 2.

The attack on Teh Etche simultaneously with the capture of Dubnik on the 24th ult., was repulsed with the loss of 1,000 men. The loss at Dubnik was 3,000 men. Every brigade and regimental commander was killed or wounded and As nearly All the officers of guards Are personally known at Headquarters the fact that 200 officers have been placed hours de combat has cast a deep gloom Over the staff at Bogot. Tho bombardment of Plevna continues in a desultory a special dispatch from Shumla says Silistria is threatened with investment but is exceedingly Strong in defences and fully armed. The Garrison is commanded by Selami Pasha one of the Ablest of turkish generals. Liou Masilang Ima contented. London nov. 4. A Vienna correspondent says there is much discontent in Loumania concerning the War. There is hardly a family in Moldavia which has not lost a relative. The full strength of the romanian army was sent into the Field at the beginning of the War. Some companies now have Only one officer. There Are no Reserve officers and the army is disorganized. After the engagement of the 19th the romanians threatened to Mutiny if further attempts were made to Lead them to certain death. The romanian Chambers will be convoked at the latest possible Date and immediately reorganized. Thus All Chance of romanians retiring from War seems to have vanished. Large bodies of troops Are being massed at Tirnovan and reinforcements Are constantly arriving and being stationed on the Siskova Biela and Tirnovan line. St. Petersburg nov. 4. The idea is rapidly gaining ground Here that perhaps the War May be finished this year. Certainly a great Effort will be made. It is generally believed that in the event of Success Russia will demand free passage of the Straits and autonomy of Northern Bulgaria under some German Prince with the guarantee of the great Powers. Senator Morton is dead. Good citizen a Oronson went up to his room the other afternoon and noticed that there was Only one match remaining in the Box. A a now if that Burn tonight when i come in a Soliloquy sized he a a what a fix i should be so he tried to see if it was a Good one. It was. Saturday morning or. Abel Knight a respectable Farmer of this county residing twelve Miles Southwest from Sedalia was Hunting his cattle in the Lamine Bottom when he suddenly came upon a Camp fire near which were hitched two uns addled horses. Surprised at the circumstance he Drew up his horse and was in the act of getting Down to see what was up when he was confronted by two men one of whom presented a drawn revolver at his breast and told him to a a Light a meaning thereby for him to dismount. Or. Knight replied a a that is just what i was going to do. But what does All this mean a a a ask no questions and Well Tell you no lies a answered one of the ruffians. It was evident to or. Knight by this time that the men he had encountered were either horse thieves or robbers. The spot was admirably suited for a hiding place. It was in a thick growth of Bottom Timber a mile from any Road and Over two Miles from a habitation. The horses looked As if they had been Ridden All night and the men in manner and appearance indicated that they were desperate characters. Under these circumstances he thought it Best to comply with their demands and get into As Little trouble As possible. Besides they were armed and he was not. Having dismounted one of the strangers proceeded in a not unfriendly Way to interrogate him regarding the Lay of the country and wanted to know what was their Best route to Boonville without passing through any towns. This information or. Knight gave As Well As he was Able. Ile even went so far As to Stanley a letter asking for Relief. The following is the letter sent by or. Henry m. Stanley to the two White merchants of Emboya the answer to which was forwarded from the United states consular agent. The letter explains itself. The Best acknowledgements of the Herald and daily Telegraph Are due to or. A. Motta Viega and or. J. W.

To any gentleman who Speaks English at Embom amp dear sir i have arrived at this place from Zanzibar with 115 souls men women and children. We Are now in a state of imminent starvation.

I therefore have made bold to dispatch three of my Young men natives of Zanzibar with a boy named Robert Cappil of the English Mission at Zanzibar with this letter craving Relief from you. I do not know you but i Arn told there is an englishman at Emboya and As you Are a Christian and a gentleman i beg you not to disregard my request.

We Are in a state of the greatest distress but if your supplies arrive in time i May be Able to reach Emboya within four Days. I want 300 cloths each four Yards Long of such Quality As you Trade with which is very different from that we have but better than All would be ten or fifteen Man loads of Rice or Grain to till their pinched bellies immediately As even with the cloths it would require time to Purchase goods and starving people cannot wait.

May not know me by name i therefore add Lam the person who discovered Livingstone in 1871. H. M. S. In. Herald. Indianapolis nov. I. Senator Morton died at 5 30 p. In. About noon mrs. Morton and her sons by her request were left alone with the senator for about an hour. What passed Between them is not for us to inquire. Before five of clock it became evident that he had entered upon his last hour on Earth. He had rested a greater portion of the Day in a half lying and half sitting position. As he grew weaker the supporting pillows were withdrawn so that he Lay prone upon the bed. A deep silence now pervaded the room and remained unbroken except by an occasional question to the dying Man. Once when the senator exclaimed a i am dying a his sister in Law mrs. Holloway inquired a a you Are not afraid to die Oliver a he indicated a a not by shaking his head. Soon after a similar exclamation question and answer passed Between him and or. Thompson. At 5 10 he exclaimed a a i am dying i am worn out a and these were his last words. From this on it was difficult to discover that life remained. On the doctors announcement a a he is going a the gaze of the wife and sons became fixed on the face of the husband and father with now and then a piteous look of inquiry toward the doctor until his further announcement a a it is the widow clasped her sons to her bosom exclaiming quietly but in tones never to be forgotten a my Darling boys a the friends withdrew leaving them alone for a time when they were tenderly taken from the room. This evening by direction of the mayor the City Bells have been tolled fifty four strokes indicating the dead senators age. Washington nov. 2. The following was issued at a late hour this evening executive mansion Washington nov. 2. I lament the sad occasion which makes it my duty to testify Public respect for the eminent citizen and distinguished statesman w Hose death yesterday at his Home in Indianapolis has been made known to the people by telegraphic announcements. The services of Oliver p. Morton to the nation in the difficult Aud responsible administration of the affairs of the state of Indiana As its governor at a critical juncture of the civil War can never be overvalued by his countrymen. His Long service in the Senate has shown his great Powers As a legislator and As a Leader and chief councilor of the political party charged with the conduct of the government during that period. In All things and at All times he has been Able strenuous and faithful in Public service Aud his Fame with his countrymen rests upon a secure foundation. The several executive departments will be closed on the Day of his funeral and appropriate honors should be paid to the memory of the deceased statesman by the whole nation. R. B. Hayes. Playing doctor. An infant child of or. Gaddas of Amesbury mass., was poisoned under Peculiar circumstances recently. It was left in the Cradle under the care of its two Sisters whose Ages were not above six years and they endeavoured to play nurse. Having seen their Mother take from the cupboard a vial they followed her example but instead of the Castor Oil bottle took one containing bed Bug Poison Aud gave a spoonful to the Little one. The Mother who was employed in the Kitchen heard the child cry and entering the room saw the condition of things and administered an antidote and thus saved its traveller. We Are so glad that All the papers in the country have taken up the Job of explaining the Republican Plevna in this state. This takes off our hands a Job we always hated that of playing a hand Over again after the game was Toledo Blade. Seeking a situation. When seeking a situation do not propose to take an advanced Post. Ask for a Chance to work beginning at the Bottom. You May be considered qualified for something better yet be placed at the foot to test your temper and Fidelity to ascertain if you will be a a faithful Over a few things a As qualification to become a ruler Over Many if you sweep make fires dust do anything and everything promptly and cheerfully you will be advanced As fast As you Are seen to have mastered your allotted position. Grumbling at your lot and asking to be put Forward will disgust your superiors who Are perhaps planning to obtain some one to till your place that you May be put Forward. Men like to manage their own business dislike to have boys make suggestions As to their own occupation or . Plants Are not put in Large pots until by healthy growing they seem to have filled the Small ones. If a puny Plant were to tease the Gardener for a Large pot or open air planting he would wisely say a fill the place you occupy first and thus show your adaptation to a larger one a or in disgust he would Jerk out out the feeble starve Ling and put a vigorous successor in its place. Many a boy has lost his situation because he whined for a Post of duty beyond his present capacity to fill. He who in store or shop begins at the Bottom and learns How to do everything and is competent to every duty has his position and ultimate Success in his own keeping and he will be sought after by Many if it is known he is at Liberty to accept of a new engagement. We have seen a faithful boy take a selfish Many a place in a shop or store having of course increased responsibilities a More elevated position and better than a a Choice of pursuits a
