Mamma closed her book as eve grew dim;
'Twas a beautiful story, too
About a Captain who gave his life,
In a storm, to save his crew.
Her little boy sat on her knee, and thought
Of the tale she just had read;
Then, lifting his eyes to his mother's face,
"What is a hero?" he said.
' 'Is he always. I wonder, a great, strong man?
. Does one ever come to this town?"
Then mamma softly bends, and strokes
The curls of chestnut-brown.
"A little boy, like you, can bo
A hero brave and true,
Fighting, not giants, but faults, my pet
Willing to dare and do,
"In days of old, brave men were called
By the good name of 'knight;'
They helped the weak, and ever fought
For justice, truth and right.
"All heroes that the world has known
Once were but boys who tried
To lead a noble life, and leave
A grand name when they died.
"The bravest hero, dear little one,
May never in far lands roam,
Or do great deeds; but every boy
Can be a hero at home!"
Farmers will do well to call on me before making" arrangements elsewhere
Washington, Aug., 3. The members of
the cabinet now believe the president to be
ont of danger. This is evident because some
of them are preparing t- leave Washington
at an early day. Blaine has fixed Aug. 10th
for his departure with his family for Maine.
Hunt intends to start on a tour of the north
ern navy yards, on the 15th. Lincoln will
return to Rye beach next week, and Mc
Veaegh will go to Pensylvania about the
same time. The president can feel the
ball distinctly when in a sitting posture,
but is unable to do so when reclining. This
is owing to the abdomen pressing against
the groin. Surgeons out side of the case
say that an operation for the ball will be
necessary before the president is allowed
to leave his bed.
lew York, Aug 3. Guiteau sent for
District Attorney Corkhill, and demanded
of him to be released on $15,000 bonds.

Chicago, Aug. 5. Ever since Monday
morning a mysterious conclave of prominent
Irishmen, numbering something like a hun
dred, has been in session at one of the hotels
in this city under lock and key and iu a
room padded and otherwise secluded.
Many well known agitators are present and
it has leaked oat that these men are the
dynamite crowd. Their deliberations are
not as to whether dynamite shall be used
against England but as to the most feasible
way of using it. The plans were elaborat
ely as to how dynamite was to be furnished
and used on the vessels and citi s. Their fi
nancial condition is good having $100,000

Denver in fouth-western Colorado was cel
ebrated there Aug 5th. The extension just
finished is 200 miles long- beginning at
Aim 03a on the Rio Grande and terminating
in the Animas valley where there are im
mense coal deposits a hundred miles wide.
It is also the southern outlet for the rich

proper transportation facilities.
The Tribune thinks Geo C. Gorham, is
still laboring under the delusion that he is
a continuing candidate of the republican
senators for secretary of the senate. -
Denver, Aug. 5. A Santa Fe special says:
A courier came into Fort Craig this morning
who. reports that the Mescalero Indians,
who have since the 17th inst, been panned
by Lieut. Guilf oyle's command,, have crossed
the Rio Grande and are running off stock
and killing herders in Old Mexico. So far
as is known two herders aud one miner have
been killed and the Indians have captured
all the stock of Cams & McConkey's stage
line from Eagle station to Black Range.
Yesterday thirty-six citizens left San Mares
cal, armed and mounted, to bury dead
bodies of the killed. At noon yesterday
while eating, dinner in Red Canyon in the
San Mateo mountains, they were surprised
by Indians and or the first fire one man was
killed aud several wounded and stock cap
tured. Remainder of the whites got be
hind rocks and dispatched two men to Fort
Craig for help. General Hatch ordered
Lieut. Guilfoyle's command'of 50 men then
at Fort Craig to the scene of the fight where
they have probably arrived before this time.
Couriers have been despatched to two com
panies of cavalry scouting in San Mateo and
Cuchillo Navajo mountains, and Lieut. Tay
lors detachment of Indian scouts is guard
ing and scouting the Black Range. Two
companies of cavalry leave Navajo reserva
tion for Black Range to-morrow. Thus far
seven victims have been gathered in by the
recent raid. Gen. Hatch is of the opinion
that some Navajoes have joined the Apaches
as there is about CO Indians in this party.
The agent of the Mescaleros reports his In
dians all on the reservation, which is not
true, as they have been recognized in the
recent fight. When these Indians have
been pressed they double on their trail and
scatter, and when ouce on the reservation
they are safe.

748 against prohibition. Other counties

The whites were divided. The negroes
solidly opposed the measure.

day known in the history of Milwaukee.
The fireman of the steamer City of Milwau

sunstroke, and very many cases ot prostra
tion which will probably prove fatal; also

New York, Aug. 5 The Tribune's
Washington special says: A gentleman who
conversed with one of the wardens of the
district jail last evening elicited the follow
ing information in regard to Guiteau. When
first arrested the prisoner appeared to be
laboring to gain the good will of those about
him. He was easily satisfied and found no
occasion for grumbling. Lately he has
changed and exhibits great irritability, man
ifesting a wish to wrejk speedy vengeance
upon any attendant who offends him.
Guiteau looks forward to his trial with
some impatience. He experts to make a
profound impression as a lawyer on that oc
casion. Liverpool, August 5 Breadstuffs firm;

wishes of the president of the United States
for your health and the welfare, prosperity
and happiness of France. America is at
peace and on friendly relations with all
nations. Toward France she cherishes a
warmer and deeper feeling. She would de
sire not only to express more warmly in this
year of centennial commemoration of our
ancient alliance her gratitude for services
rendered in the infancy of her existence,
and the earnest hope that this long un
broken amity may be perpetuated, but to
greet you as friends in the great work of
securing popular freedom under established
law. Both have struggled for free govern
ment, and both now enjoy what was defined
by our martyred Lincoln as a government
ot the people, tor the people and by the
people. America is proud to occupy with
France the foremost rank in the grand
march of nations towards that political
emancipation which gives every man voice
in his country's government, believing un
