From Clayville to Bponeton, in the United States, is about hftceii miles, across a rolling prairie, and the road runs very near east and west. Ualf way between the two towns the road is touclicd by a point where a heavy growth of pine ti’ees sweep away to the north wal'd into a dark, dense forest In the spring of 1S42 a man left Clayville in the morning, bound for Booneton. His name was registered at the inn as Richard Bizbee, of New York, and he was supixiseil to have money with him. lie left Clay-villc upon horseback in fine health and spirits, but ho was nr ver seen in Booneton. Perhaps he had, unnoticed, gone part of the way, and then re-tiirneil. At all events he was never heard of more in that district. About a month after that a man from St. Louis left Booneton forClay-villc. He yvas also on horseback, gnd started off well and hearty; bnt he never reported himself at the place of his destination. Within a fortnight alter this second disappearance two moie travelers >vere missed. AYhat did it mean ? The road between the two towns was direct, and.not even a by-way was there to lead anyone astray; so that to wander freni the true track was imiiosslble. "Dnring the month of July thi'oc travelers were missed, and the people turned out in a body to search. Of courac attention was directed to the wood, and the search was extended for miles and miles, but without success. On the 4th of August a young man, who gave his name at Clayville as Michael Dupont, of New Orleatrs, left that place lor Booneton. lie was on horsehack, and when he was told of the dangers of the road he only laughed at them. He said lie had a good horse and good wcaiions, and he was not afraid. But Michael Dupont never reached Booneton. It was on the 19th of Augiist that I arrived at Clayville and put up at the village inn. I was on the track of two rogues who had robbed tho bank in Jackson, and I had not been at the inn an hour before I made myself sure that the men I sought had passe<l that way only thi-ee days before. Ami then I heard this other story ot the travelers who had so mysteriously disappeared from the road that hay before me. When I had gone some flve or iix miles the next morning I noticed that my horse began to falter, and in a little while afterwards he came to a walk, and seemed to be in great pain. Imagining that he would soon fall, I slipped from the saddle and led him out upon the grass at the side of the read. As I stood thus, wondering what in the world I should do, I saw a man coming toward nie freni the direction of Booneton. lie was seat ed on a imwerful black horse, without dale, and his only bridle >vas a anv sat bit of i-opc passed around the animara nose. He was a simple looking fel low, dressed in an ordinary farming garb, and behind him were what ap-red to bo some empty bags. As stood peai he came near to where I stood I saw him gatlier his halter as though he meant to put his horse into a run. ior I cried. “Stop a iho- “Helio! ment.” The fellow semed to consider upon it, and linally turned hia horse’s head toward me and soon dismounted by my side. “I’ve hcer’ a good deal ’bout this road,” ho said, eying mo from tO|^to toe, “and I like to be keerful. with a fall, eh, stranger?” “Not exactly a fail,” I said. “My horse seems to have given in.” The fellow walked aiound my quivering beast, and when ho came back be put his hand upon tho animal’s threat and gave a sharp punch. The horse started back with a grunt, and directly began to heave ami slaver at the mouth. “You don’t belong to these parts, stranger,” he said, eyeing me again. “No,” 1 told him. “I thought not,” he added. “I guess vour hoss has been eatin’ devil’s tail.” I asked him what that was. “It’s a kind o’ nison,” he answered, “that bosses pick np hereabouts. rrevalenca «( Kidney Complaint in Anaerka; “Bucfiu-palka” la a euick, oonpleta our*. |l. He’ll be well enough by to-niorrew or next day, at the farthest.” “If that’s the case,” I said, “perhaps you’ll let me bargain for yours.” “I never owned anything vet that I wouldn’t sell if a man wanted it innrc’n 1 did,” he replied. “Well,” I said, “and may I ask what price von set upon your beast I” “Je¿t|70.” I bad expected to hear him say a hundi'ed. 1 took him at his offer in a moment. Tho bargain was made; I counted out seven ten dollar pieces, put my saddle and bridle upon tlio now horse and then mounted. “Perhaps,” said the fellow, u he gave tho sick horse another pynch in tlio gullet, “if I should see you in Booneton one o’ these days yw might like to change back again ?” 1 told him we’d see about that, and then, bidding him good morning, I started off. I had certainly got a splendid horse. He stepped as lightly and gracefully as a dancing master, and boro me as easily u though I had been in a carriage. In a little while I touched him wiUiawhIp, and he pranced gaily. I patted him on the neck and told him that I liked him. We were now just at the point where the angle of the wood reached the edge of the road, f nd without apparent cause the horse started into a gallop. I sjioke to him and tried to hold him in, out he only went the faster. In a few minutes he wheeled out of the road and struck into the wood, and now he ran for dear life. I yelled with all my might and tugged at the rein till my arms ached, but I could neither turn his head or slacken his spceil. He flew on like the wind, selecting his course where the trees were farthest apart —flew on, sweeping now to the right and now to the left, jnst as the passage through the forest seemed most favorable. As soon as I found the horse was not to be stopped I turned «ny attention in another direction, and very quickly it flashed upon me that the flying beast had been trained to just this kind of work. Like horses I had read of in Arabia, he would take his course for his master’s habitation, let it be where it would. The man witli whom I liad traded was one of the gang, and there must have been anotlicr at tiie stable of the inn at Clayville who had given my horse sometiiing to make him sick. These thoughts only passed through my mind with iiglitning-like rapidity, but they were systematically arranged .18 they came, and I knew that I had licen trapjied, and tnatthc animal was bearing me to the haunt of the rob-liers. For a moment tlierc was a desire to keep on and meet the rascals, but that would only be madness. I must get off the saddle somehow. Ha! the opportunity presented itself. Ahead I saw a stream of water. 1 withdrew my feet frem tlie stirrups and placed my hand upon the j)om-mel. One more leap and the horse’s feet touched the pebbly shore. With a snddcn spring I lifted myself clear >f the saddle, and as the beast flew from beneath me I dropped into the brook without Inirt of any kind. As quickly as possible 1 scrambled up the bank and when I had reached 4hc wood I stopucd to consider. The horse had stopped on the opposite side of the stream as tliough looki ng for his rider, and for a moment I thought of firing a pistol ball at him. However, I did not waste ray powder, and in a little while the aniinaJ turned and trotted off and was soon out of sight Now, what should I do? Of course I must get out of the wood; and todo that safely I must go back by the way we had come. >I looked to my liistols and started. Tho sun gave me inv direction, so I could make no mistake. By and by I heard the tread of a horse ahead, and as quickly as ))os-siblc I found shelter l^hind a huge pine tree. The horse came along within a hundred yards of me. The horseman was my lionest countryman who feared I might be a roljber, and the horse was the one I had owned an hour before. The animal still foamed at the mouth, but cantered along without apparent trouble. So the “pison” had not been so very deadly; and, moreover, tlic punching in the gullet liad not been without its effect. Surely the plan had been a cnte one, and the game had been adroitly played—only I had chanced to gain one effective play before tholr game conld dc finished. I remained behind the tree until the horseman disappeiu’cd, and then moved on again. Had I been nearer to tho rascal I might have intercepted him, hot as it was the tiling could not well be done. I hurried forwaM with all possible speed, and in a little while after I {reached the highway I had the good fortune to be overtaken by a man in a wagon. When I first hailed him ho drew a pistol, and seemed disinclined to stop; bnt in a moment more he recognized mo as one whom he had seen on the road beyond Clayville tho dav before,and finally pull^ np and ad<)resaed me. I soon convinced him that I was an honest man, and ho took me in. He was bound to Booneton, and was glad that he had found safe company; but I did not tell him what I haddiscovered. lex-plained tho fact of my being afoot by telling how my horse had failed me by the wayside. 1 reached Booneton by the middle of the forenoon, where I found two shrewd, intelligent looking officers, to whom I coinronnicated my secret, and togutlier we laid .a plan for finding the robbers. On the following day wo disguised ourselves and proceeded to that point in Uie road where the tridued horse had turned off into the wood, but we found nothing. On the next day wc went again, and this time we had the good lortune to meet my honest looking horse trader astiide of the very animal that had carried me to the brook. Ho did not recognize me, and readily stopped when my companions halted him; and, as may be supposed, we cajitured him witliout inucli trouble. At first ho expressed, mnch surprise, but when he came to recognize mo he ceaseil his railing and professed a willingness to go with us where we pleased. Wo carried him to Booneton, and while the officcra were taking him into the tavern I took good care that his horse was aafely housed in the stable. The follow gave his name as Mark Sackett, ana aworc that he knew nothing of any robbers or anything of that kind, and touching the affair of tho horse, he declared that that was something which he could not explain. He said that he saw me when I was carried into the woods, and as the horse I had left with him began to revive he had moiinte<l and followed me. Bcvoud this, we could get nothing from him. But I had an idea cff my own. I believed that if there was a h lunt of rebbers anywhere in the woo<l, the prisoner’s horse would take us there, and when I gave ray opinion to the officers, they jumped at the conclusion. It was now only an hour past noon, and in less than an hour wo had twenty men, well mounted and well armed, ready to follow ns. The black horse was led out, saddled and bridleii, and I took my ^at upon his back, and ho bchavcdt well as he started off. In fact, he sfiemed to like the company of the other horses, and to bo preud of leading them. When wc readied the wood I jgave him tiic rein and he turned oft’ B^st where he had turned with me before; but ho did not dash away this time as he had done on that former occasion. Being in the society ot steady horses seemed to sober him down^ and he led the way as a well-disjiofied pioneer should. On by the very path I had been before—across the brook where I had made mv leap—and then away through tlie dark, deep wootl beyond. By and by w’e came to another stream, ujxm the opposite side of which arose a high perpendicular bluff, and it ap lean^ to os that there could not possibly be any passage that way. But the black horse pusheil into the stream, and wheo he reached the other side he walked down a few rods ill the shallow water, and then tnniing to the right ho entered a narrow pass which had been before invisible. A little way through this curious passage, and wo came info a deep, circular bxsin or hollow, w alle<I in u|)oii all sides by an almost pér{>endiculur bank, ami here, sitting beneath some small trees, wc found six bien. They started np when they siwj ns, but as our pistols were quickly wt they did not offer resistance. OiilB ot them, how'cvcr, made a dash i towards a point ill tho wall directly behind my two companions, but he was quickly stopiied, and as my eyes followed the course he had taken Í discovered an open place in the face of the bluff, like tlie mouth of a cavcrit. I need not tell how we overcame the villains, nor need I transcribe tho thousand and one wicked tilings they said. Buffice it for me Aa telF^iat we secured them, ami that we then examined the oiieiiing in the bank which I had discovered. It provcil, as I had suspected, to be the moiitli of a large cavern, within which we found plenty of arms and ammunition, and also many valuables which had been taken irom murdered travelers. The whole thing, had happened very fortunately tor ns. Had the robbers been in the i»vc when we entered the basin, oi* had they been in possession of tlieu' firearms, we might have had some hot work, for they were desperate characters; but wo fairly caught them napping. And one thing more: I ¡discovered my two bank robb<;r3 in the party. *We returned to Booneton, and after the rascals had been loilged in jail, the one whom we liad captui'cd upon the road, and with whom I had changed horses, turned State’s evidence ; and his story was just about what I had expected. He said thaj the gang had been together for several years, ojierating in difierept parts of the country. The horse had been trained by one of their number, who had been an old circus performer, and had been taught, when scut away from home without any breakfast, to dash off with the victim gs he had done with me. This was done to avoid any bloody scenes near tlie highway. But the victim was not always taken to their cavernous retreat. When a prize was expected some of the gang stationed tiicinselves along in the    betweea the two streams, ready to stop the horse and despatch the éntrappcd traveler; bnt I was assured that if Iliad been taken across the first bi'ook I siiould have met my death very quickly afterward. They had no accomplice at the inn. When a traveler was “spotted” cither at Clayville or Boonetpn, one of their number was sent to look out for said traveler's horse, who, bv carefbl management, had little difllculty in adniinislering a sickening dose to the animal. The rascals were tried, condemned and cxocnted, and I retained possession of tho trained hoi'se, but I did not keep him long. One bright morning I missed him from the stable, and all search for him was in vain. It is jiossible that the intelligent brute unfastened his own halter strap and ran away, but I have chosen to give the matter a difterent solution. 1 believe he was stolen by the honest looking couiitrvmun in whose hands I tirsi found him,and who was set at liberty on account of turning State’s dence. evi- To My Clw k.

London Society.] Alphonse Daudct was the second Parisian celebrity who 'admitted me into his sanctiiin. It was no reception to which I was invlte<l this time, for the author of “Lcs Rois en Exil” visits in literary circles, but in his own house leads a quiet life. He expressed tliis in a few words when he said to luo; “Genius and irregularity are not any longer synouvmons; to-day we are before all else w’orkers and respectable people; we marry, we have children and wc lead a family life.” Certainly his home is singularly well protected against any intruder. He lives in the Roulcvard de I’Observatoiro, not far irom the statue of Marcchal Ney, that hapless victim to his devotion to the modern when bidding good-bye to her charming husband. 8now in the Hierran. [Las VVgnsi Ijettcr lo Kansas city Journai.J The snowfall in (ho momitains the present year has been extraordinary and unprecedented; at least the old settlers vainly endeavor to recall the year when there wes as much snotvas at present. A recent visit of the writer to tlie northwestern ixu-tion of this Tenilorv has convinced him of the Tbe New Jerseg Jacket. Caesar. From the window of Daudet’s-room you have the most splendid view you can imagine of the park, with its white and graceful Atatucs of Greek goddesses; but you have to cHinb before you can reach the little nest where the celebrated writer hides hia happiness. For a moment I felt astonished that the man who is so popular all over the world and whose books sell by the million was not living in a house of his own, but in a flat au troisiemc. The door was guarded Vy a maid servant, who was so well trained that she would not suffer any one to cross the tlireshold and never left off telling me that her master was out, though I had told herthatlwas expected. Happily, I caught sight of Damlet’s secretary, who was just then busy telling a l>crson, who also wished to see the great man, that there was no chance of such a thing, as M. Daudct was suffering and did not receive any visitors. I went np to this young man, however, and, as soon as I had shown him the letter bidding me come, he saw me into one of those charming, small boudoir-like drawing rooms w’hich are tobe found all over Paris. I was not kept waiting very long before Alphonse Dkqdct entered Ihe skion and bade me (ollo^ Mm into his studv, a still smaller apartment, well-nigh entirely filled np by a large desk, a sofa and some easy-chairs. Daudct is a man of middle height, broad-shouldered, with a splendid head, a perfect picture of a i^uthern Frenchman, ills skin is very brown anda mass of dark long hair encircles a face whose features are almost perfect. There is a liitlo grasseycment in his voice which makes you think of Henri le Balafre and the monocle he constantly wears gives a singular penetrating look to his large brown eyes. He told me how much lie had Huffei'ed of late from neuralgic pains— “dans la region dn coeur”—which had prevented him from working, writing and even thinking. He was sure he had contracted this during the time of tho war, when he and all his tVieiids had fulfilled the duties of common soldiera and had held nigiit watches in the bitter cold, as well as other things no less trying for constitutions never accustomed to such modes of life. He told me he never gave receptions; “It is til very well for M. Victor Hugo and his friends, for tliey are great men, but 1 live quite a patriarchal life and for the rest--why, you see, niy divan is very small.” Daudet went on to tell me how he was literally inundated by letters from unknown jieople, some wanting to express tlicir admiration, some begging for his autograph, others asking him for some explanation concerning his books. It was iiniiossible, he said, to answer them all, and accoi*dingly he had taken the resolution never to make any reply. One of the questions wJiich had been put him most frequently of late was whether “L’Evangclistc” contained a true story. I’oiiiting out one of the drawers of his desk he added: “It is so true tliat all the letters of that poor girl and her money are lying there, and I could show you how I only copied most of them textually, without altering a wonl. The iiufortuiiato mother occasionally comes here, as my wife feels the greatest conipassion for lier, and helps her as much as slio can for she lives in the bitterest misery.” While still talking ho was disturbed by the opening of the lioor and the entrance of one of the most lovely chihlren I have ever seen; a little boy of about five years, with long fair bl hair descending to the waist, and such fine features that I thought him to bo a girl, till Alphonse Daudet exclaimed; “Well, Lucicn, what do you come for?” “.lo vicus cherclier dcs .mciltoures plumes; je ne puis pas ecrirc avec lcs autre>‘,” rcjilied the little one, who, much to our amusement began with tho greatest jios-siblc eanicstnoss to seek among the papers of his father for what he wanted. Daudot then told me how this child was already full of ambition for writing, while his little brother, who is kis senior by some years, nreferrod the plastic art. Of Mme. Daudct, who hss proved to bo such a faithful helpmate to her husband in his literary work, and has )iist published her “Souvenirs d’uno Farisionue,” 1 only caught a glimpse vast amount of water deposited in the form of snow throngliont all tho ranges. On account of this great amount of snow, the spring in this XerritoriT has been unusually backward and cohi, and although past tlie middle of April, real spring weather has haixlly vet set in. The railroads in tho mountains have had much to contend with, and several lines for weeks and even months have been completely blockaded. This has notably been*the case witli the San Juan branch of tlie Denver fo Rio Grande. This was run from Alamosa, Col., south into New Mexico, and thence north again to Durango and Silvcrton ill Colorado. Oil the dividing line between the Territory and Colorado is the Conejos range of mountains, over which the road runs. About thirty miles of the road over the range has been effectually buried under the snow for three months past, de^Mits, section liousoA and all. The blockade took effect oil the first of February, since which time but tAvo trains have ’jccii gotten over the road. Tweiitj’-six feet of siioav, by actual measurement, has fallen in these mountains during the winter, and the greater part of it yet remains «lensely packed and difficult to move. Snow plows are useless, and it is only by shoveling that it can be got ott' the track. A large number of men have been empl .yed during this time shoveling out the snow until they have thrown it out higlicr than the cars on either side of the track, and yet a slight fall of snow and a day of'wind suffices to till it np almost as full as before'throughout its length. For almost three months Chama, N. M., and Durango and Bilverton, Col,, have been cut off from the outside world. No mails have been received there during this time exoerd what HttleiSJities by wajT6f ForUwingatc, N. M.
