Indian campaigns nrethe : cause of this. I have fought and chased Indians from the Ilritisli lines to the Kio (liaiide, and know wlmt campaigning means. The Indians always get a tre 1 iiii-ii.louH start of the cavalry, and seldom nro overtaken. The army hua been blamed for its ill success, but w hen the circumstances ure understissl it is won derful thut so much has Is-en accom plished. ! "The Indians never attempt to commit outrages in the vicinity of an iiriny post, -and news seldom ustsl to arrive until I twenty-four hours or more hud el;iised I and tho Indians hud a long start. Nearly j always th.-y are provi.hsl with remounts, tin! loose horses Is-iiv; driven beforo the land, and w hen an iinimul shows signs of fatigue another is remounted and the flight continued on a fresh animal.

The fat i .ties of one of these fruitless march.', generally niado on short ration to secure celerity of move ment by avoiding currying baggage, can well ho imagined, ami the condition of man and ls-;it after a two months' cam jiaign is wretched in the extreme.

Of ull tlu-so In dians the Kiowns were the Ust drilled, it licing hard to distinguish them from the dragoons tit u distance of two or three miles. The I'tiniaiiches never deserved their great reputation, as they wero pKir lighter, doing well ngainst tho Mexicans, but never standing against United States t ti sips. The Cheyenne were noted far and wide us the most determined and fiercest lighters, but their energies wore nn um constantly directisl against their hereditary enemies, thelites, than against the white. The Sioux were the largest and most m -i liil trilx-, and gave us more trouble than any others. They were iu their way us well drilled as the Kiowas, I myself having seen a single chief direct the movements of 1,000 warriors, scattered over un extent of country live miles in diameter, simply by the Hashing of a little mirror held iu the hand. The lilackfi-et, being foot Indians, were more easily reached, and after one or two lesson never guvo any more trouble, although last winter they threat ened an outbreak. 'The Crows and Tawnees, lieing hated by nil other trilios, were our allies and made our best trailer. The Utes, whilo less daring than the plains Indians, from their situation in the mountains were enabled to ambush thotroops very easily, timl many live have been lost in this way. 1'igliling withal was rather a run than a combat, und the troops hud for many years little chance against them on account of their great celerity of move ment. It was not until the winter of 1S70, when (Jen. Nelson A. Miles ls?gan his scries of winter campaigns, that the plain Indian were thoroughly subdued. That ollicer followed their trail in the coldisit weather, drove them from their winter camps, and although unable to overtake them, kept them constantly on the move. The Indians, sensitive to cold, and ill provided with clothing, died Lko sheep of hardship and exposure and one by one the bands, fairly tired out, fame in, surrendered and were disarmed and put on reservation. The winter campaign more than anything else broke the jHiwer of the plains tribes, but at terrible e'stise to the troops, who were exposed to the fury of the western storms in the coldest months of the year. The youngsters iu the army regret the disupiicaiiuicc of the Indian, but wo old fellows, who know what (. winter march is are most thankful that they are over, probably forever.

There is one advantage we have over the skin that we have not over the liver, we can get at it and keep it clean and well exercised, w hen the liver, being out of sight and reach, bus to l treated by other means.

Double Nationality. History supplies a great many cases In which men have changed their iiatiotialitj very suddenly iu order lo serve personal purposes, but no case is recorded, perhuiM, where one hies changed so often as a cer tain railroad conductor who serves uu line connecting France and Germany. This functionary changes his mitiunuhty twice a day. An American traveler w ho was riding on the traiu between Uusle and Ht-lfort re lates that, shortly after passing nut uf Swiss into German territory, he had occa tiou to ask the chief of the train some ques tion about the journey, aud put the in quiry in French. - "Nein, neiii!" said the conductor. "Sprcecheu Sie Deutschl" (Xo, no, speak German.) The American asked his question In tin best German he could muster and receiv ed an answer in that language. Before long tlie traiu had traversed the uarrow la-It of German territory and enter ed France. The traveler again hud occasion to make an Inquiry and this time uddress ed the same conductor iu German. "Monsieur," said tfhe chief of the train, politely, "je ne parle que Francais." (1 speuk nothing hut French.) As the man hud to retrace his steps aud become a German agaiu before he went to bed, his changes, it Is plain, came much oftetier than those of tlie famous vicar of Bray, who changed his religion half a dozen times under as many governments, "Because," as he explained, "he was re solved, uo matter who was king, to live and die the vicar of Bray." The Power of the Hje In the Dark. Toward nightfall, as the light grows scarce and dim, the pupil of the eye in creases to its greatest size so as to cutcii and uiisorl) all the rays it possibly can. Thus a cat's eye will grow large at dusk, aud those of the night loving owl are so made as to produce a greater convergence of the rays of light, so that iu faint light it can distinguish objects closer. It is us great a mistake to suppose that cats can see in the dark, where no light is, as it is to suppose that under the influence uf pas sion or excitement man's eyes have the power of emitting light. It 1 impossible, as has been proved beynutid a donlit hy many experiments in utterdarkiiess. True, a cat's eyes have a wonderful brilliancy, hut that is due to a "carpet of glittering libers" called the tapetum. It may be to some extent iu virtue ot this glitter that they possess their alleged power of fascinating small birds and other creatures, though we certainly need not suppose that the terror and inability to move evinced hy the victim are due to the power of the eye alone. Fear of the un proaching monster, which instinct tells them is hostile to their life, is fully ns para lyzing as any eyeglitter. Chambers' Jour nal. Cupboard Love. An Englishman, who once traveled on foot through Norway, says that ho was much attracted by tne tameuess of tne horses and cows which he saw feeding along the roadside. It indicated a kindly disposition on the part of the people, he thought, but he adds: Iu my original notes I And a long para graph overflowing with sentimental ten derness relative to these affectionate cons, that followed and overwhelmed me wl'.'i their loving licks; hut I do not transcribe it, as upon further reflection it is evident that the licking was mere cuplxmrd love. All cattle in inland, and esiecially In mountainous, districts have a strong crav ing for salt, aud these cows were merely licking the deposits front the sea spray that hud falling ou my clothes during the recent voyage. This discovery was mortifying to my feelings. Mau wishes to be loved for him self alone, and the spontaneous manifesta tions of these pastoral, unsophisticated cows seemed to respond to the heart's fond yearnings. But, ulas! even the cows of Surremlal were liking me for the salt 1 carried. Secrets from the Confessional. A joiner being ordered to execute some repairs in a confessional which stood in the Church of St. Koch, took the oppor tunity to insert in the woodwork, a micro phone, which he connected by means of a couple ot wires with a telephone receiver placed iu an out of the way corner of the church, where the man concealed himself when people weut to confession. Iu this way be overheard a good ninuy secrets, which he turned to account by extorting hush money from the poor penitents. Tbe priest was at first suspected of having be trayed the secrets of tbe confessional, but after awhile the truth came out and tbe culprit was apprehended aud tent to jail. Journal de i'Electricite. Impowlhle to Transport Motqultoee. From the method of life of the mos quito, especially in Its early stages, It ii clear that it would be next to impossi ble to transport them accidentally, ex cept as perfect insects, from one coun try to another across large tract of ooean, and the reports that are eome timea spread of mosquitoes appearing In hotels in England frequented by Americans need to be received with great caution. Probably, in most in stances. Investigation would show that they were simply English gnats rather more virulent than usual, which had been propagated In some neighboring cistern or pond. Knowledge.
