The tremendous Hoods had (Mirtiully inundated tint great valleys of the Huenunentn, PVutlior and Yuba, and at the wuno time transformed into lakesUiQ Mtiall vatteysot tho mountains. This rendered travel impossible, and the people of Plumas were rut oir from all news of the great conflict then raging between the north and the south. The engcrnotw for news and the high price* paid for paper?, made it a great object with the express companies to take more than ordinary chances in Rotting matter over the mountains. During the mouth of January Mr. Whiting was confined by the high water for a whole week at Buck's ranch, while hut faithful messenger, Bob Owen, was obliged to remain at Buckeye, tome fourteen miles over the mountains. Owen was a Ktorllng son of the I'ine Tree stato, and realizing the great anxiety of the people lo hear the latest nuwa of the civil war, lie wniohed for tho first chance to cross the surmnita. The storm slightly abated, and [ Bob k trapped lil.s snowslioeti u]h>h his fret and his Middle jx-cktH.s and mail bags ujkui hi> back and blurted upon his perilous trip. The loug continiifd rains hud swollen every little creek, and through theso Owen was obliged to wade, for there were no bridge* or foot logs across tho Hindi creek*. The, water was icy cold, and poor Bob had not gone a mile till ho was drenched to tho skin. Slowly and wearily Ue plodded on hour aftor hour over "Walker^ x>luinn, past the Old Palmetto and up Boapstone hill, each mile iiuTtnuiug bis altitude till ho was nearly eiglit thousand foot above the level. Tho cold winds upon his wet clothing made him shiver as though with ague. Once passed Frouchinun'ahill his traveling wan it Utile easier, but tho day was fast disappearing and ho was yet some miles from hiit destination. Alono amhl tho black forests, almost doubling his ability to hold out till he could reach IluekV, he could but think of the many who hud per tailed while m^sin^ thU high ridge of iiiouutuin>. ile recalled poor Bain, who bud htrugglcd ho muni idly; In: thought of ihe unforitumto Frenelmmn wIiomj tragic death hud given his name in tho mighty peak ho was iheu de-ei'tiding; ho couutt-il up the unmet; of tim*e who had died oil this rund from hunger and exposure, mid said to hitiihi'lf if u ci'itss mnrlied tin* grave of each, ut is the custom in some countries, there uould be at least one for every mile of distance. The tiUirui had now resumed it* /uryv and Owen had Ui face ibis us he struggled along under the htiavy load of e.v prewt ami limit, lie at last reached Buck's valley and congratulated himwlf that a mile or two further would end his hard trip. Of this ho wus hear lily glad, for he was well nigh worn out from his great exertions and orjm*ure all day to the storm, besides havtug to wodo numberless felrwuus of leu cold watiir. lie crossed one raging torrent Upon a bridge, and said to himself one more creek to cross and less than a mile to travel and 1 will be at Buck's. Slowly making his way, with visions of a warm supper and a bright lire awaiting him at the end of his journey, ho came within sight of tbo second stream, Ho suddenly started, theu stopped, And the blood seemed to frotue In till heart The bridge wus gone. It was already fast growing dark, as he had been all day in making the thirteen miles from Buckeye, Ho knew that he would perish If he attempted to return in the night, yet there was no possibility of crossing the mad flood in (rout of him. Thoroughly drenched aud shivering with cold, he drew forth his precious match box, thinking he tnight Ixs Able to start a lira and remaiu by it during the uigbt. With numb and half frozen bauds he opened this, only to mid that tie had not a single dry match. . 0�en wus in despair, for the alternative was presented to hiui of freezing upon the bank of that stream or of plunging into it and take the dosperato chances of drowning. There wus but little time luft lain for uonsid* er#Uou. Darkness was rapidly setting down Over the mountains, and hu knew that if he Attempted to remain where he was his name in the morning would bo added to that of JJuin. the gallant Frenchman and others : whohe lives had been lost, fc^fer mindful of 4be task that impelled him to peril his life, he sought to save tho express uud mail.

It him iKM^ome the usual thing for ladies who accomiHiny their husbands, brothers or fathers ou summer outing to carry their own guns and Ashing tackle and join in all tho outdoor sports of the party. The dealers in arms and ammunition say that this practice is growing quite rapidly, and that as a gen> eral thing when a man comes in to buy a hunting outllt for himself ho orders u similar one, ouly smaller and lighter, for his wife. But it Is just as complete in all tho little tricks and dovicKs and essentials dear to the hunter' heart, as his own. And they say that the average man who does this is very proud of the fact that it is for his wife or i-ister or daughter. Very often she goes with him and helpi select the outllt. But the pride with which he buys it does not bi;giu to comparo with tho pride with which lie drops into the store when ho returns to the city, reminds them of tho lady's outfit they sold him three months Iwfure and mentions the fact that his wife bagged a score of partridges, or brought down a deer, or killed a brace of hawks on the wing.-New York Herald. Uouirf Wouiuu's Itaaltu. Home Is the habitation of woman. In the home all that is characteristically fernuiinu tn women unfolds and flourishes. Home without woman is a misnomer, for woman makus the borne, and home is what she makes it. If she is illiterate, her homo jmrtakes of thin quality; if she is immoral, her home cannot bo the abode of virtue; if she is court**, refinetni'iit doi-s not dwell where she resides, ll'hheia cultured, pure, rellned, these o,uuli-ti"S will idiuvacleri'zti the home which she nv.-ilev. The higher the degree of her culture, her punt)', her reliuemeiii, the more will these tpialitien clmrncterixe the home of which hlie is the center. The self that a woman takes with her in her marriage is her real dower. If her dower can be reckoned in nu-niei'ule only, no matter how ninny they may l)o, wrecked indeed will be her hu*band, im-ftoverfshed her children. But if she possesses industry, gentleness, wdf abnegation, purity intelligence, combined with capability, she is in herself a treasure of treasures.-Woman and Home. llarvunl Women. The Harvard examinations for women were opened ten years ago. The first year twenty-fh*o students presented themselves. They jHissed the examinations required of the freshman doss for ad mission to the university. By degrees accommodations werefouud at Cambridge for women students, mid professors were found who gave them instruction. These belonged to the Harvard faculty. Tho professors have entered iuto their work in a noble, truly liberal spirit. The instruction given to male students at Harvard is simply duplicated to the female pupils. It Is the same course of study, to all intents and purposes, except at the end of it the women studsuta receive no diploma. To them Is given ouly a certificate informing whom it may concern that the bearer has pursued in Harvard university a course of study equivalent to that for which the degree of Bachelor of Ai U is given.-Detroit New*. &aftnm*n Would 8*>Jte � 8t�amcr nnd Tara Things Loose-The "Bl� Sanity Dollar" urn I the Rtlilc* Whlnh Protected tha Counterfeiter*. Th* mountaineer* who live along the Btg Sandy river, which forms the dividing line between Wpst Virginia and Kentucky, nnd their neighbor* of northeastern Kentucky, in feuds, vendettas And Woody battles, are most peculiar people, with a htriorr running bai^k Into the'30s,'40� nud'50b aud generations preceding, which, If published, would throw Into the shade the best efforts of the I Texan frontier In the dayn of its greatest no-1 toriety.

To this fact Is also attributed many of the j>ecullaritics of ternj>orument and disposition so anomalous In this age of Intelligence. Around these people, as a nucleus, brick in the '30b and MOs of tho present generation, all the wild spirits of thi� port of the country, who were either driven from tho large centers of the population by violence of some statute or by choice, seem to have been attracted by some occult magnetism until the Big Sandy country became known throughout the country as the home and hiding place of hundreds of the wildest characters. RUNNING THE BOAT. The Big Sandy raftsmen becoroo known throughout the country as the wildest, roost dangerous class of men on the Ohio river. Their carouses, their love of fighting or anything which partook of desperation and devil-tr^- fs still a familiar theme from Pittsburg to Cbicinnati. Hundreds of stories of their daro devil scrapes are still told along the rivor, and it was not an uncommon thing when several hundred of them had sold their timber, which they had floated down to Cincinnati in Immense rafts aud fleets, for them to get on board one of the largest boats which at that day plied the rivor on their up trip and take the captain, pilots, engineers and other olllcers prisoners and run the boat to suit themselves. On sucb occasions a steamboat would become a pandemonium, with several hundred gigantic devils whooping, yelling, spitting tobacco juice against the bulkheads, mirrors or furniture, while others disported themselves with cards and played "old sledge" or usLud borse poker" uiitil one or other participant got up dead broke or the affair ended in a general fight Upon the hurricane deck some leading spirit would stand in command of the vessel while another covered the pilot with a pistol or rifle and compelled him to steer the craft subject to the whim of the biggest devil, who was in command. Below one or two sat around in the engine room and "persuaded" the engineer and stokers into subm ission. On these occasions the amount of steam was most frequently controlled only by the capacity of the boilers, as the boot fairly flow through the water. Every other craft In the legitimate trade gave the "pirate" as wide a berth as possible, running into the bonk if necessary to get out of tho way. When a town or landing was approached the bell was kept clanging us fast as stalwart arms could pull the rope, wbilo the whistle was blown loud and long enough to awaken the seven sleepers. i The citiaeus of the town's seemed to know by intuition that the raftsmen had taken possession of a boat long before she came in sight and crowds of them would congregate along the bank to witness the strange scene. There was no use to resist, as steamboatmen soon learned, and the only way to save the boat and property was to effect some sort of compromise, which generally ended in the daredevils running the steamer half a day or such u matter, when they turned her over to the proper owuers. Although theso men wore known to be daredevils and fond of a flgbt or anything which partook of excitement, they wero not all bad by any means. Still as the Big Sandy country was known to be the hiding place of hundreds of desperado**, it got u widespread notoriety. the "mo sandy doiaa.u." Along in tho MOs ami '50s the country for hundreds of miles above and below was filled wiili counterfeits, principally silver dollars. Tho government of thy United States sent out a number of it* liest detectives, aud after a long time they located their manufacture at Bandy, but tho manufacture was not suppressed mild a long tune after everybody knew as well as the olllcers themselves that the counterfeit was manufactured s'micwhere up tho stream. Tho "Big Sandy dollar," aa the ^counterfeit was denominated, was as common as its more legitimate brother from the mint at Washington or New Orleans along the Ohio valley, and it was claimed openly, and, I believe, frequently odmitted to tins day by the older people, that the "Big Bandy dollar" contained as much silver and and was as handsome a piece of money us the genuine. Evan long after the discovery of the comiockers' den iu the mountain the bogus dollar remained in circulation. To account for this the writer has been often told that tho counterfeiters had discovered a vein or mine of silver in the mountain and that they were "using pure silver and more of It" than was contained In the genuine. Be that as it may, the tradition still exists that a silver mine existed aud was long worked at some point on the fcluudy. I believe none of the counterfeiters were ever arrested, and the reason given is that there was a code of ethics among the inhabitants which granted* every one the privilege of using bis raw material as he saw fit.- Chicago Times Farkersburg (W.
