^ ^ 4 Texans of coarse resented to the ut­
most this conduct of the redskins, and
many a brave paid the death penalty
for trying to get away with horses or
cows that did not belong to him.
“ Many a poor settler, too, in trying to
save his little homestead, fell a victim
to tho barbarous foe, Some unusually
cruel raids, in which a number of white
women and little children were butch
ered, about the year 1859, in W illiam ­
son county, not far from the state capi­
tal, caused tho resentment of tho people
to riso to a boiling pitch, and vengeance
was 6woru against the whole tribe of
marauding red demons. The affair was
so ruthless in its atrocity that it came
very near being the cause of a whole­
sale slaughter of the Indians, which
could have scarcely been justified.
“ The proposition came from one of
the noted frontiersmen and Irdian
fighters of that day, who has long sinoe
«| crossed over the river, General Hender­
son. The old man advanced it coolly
and could with difficulty be persuaded
r v to abandon it. It was to invite, under
the guise of pretended friendship and
reconciliation, all the Comanches that
could be assembled in a great scope of
surrounding country to a big barbecue,
where there was to bo eating and drink­
ing galore and a general smoking of the
of peace. It was to be a grand
feast, especially in tho roast beef part
of the menu, said beef to be artistically
dressed with poison enough to kill every
son of a gun of an Indian that partook
of it. Well, they wouldn’ t let the old
general carry out his scheme, and he
got very hot over it and to tho day of
his death cursed the sentimental fools
that interfered with his pious for reduc­
ing the Comanche census. ”
H a r- Work and Indigestion go
hand in hand.
Concentrated thought, continued in. robs
the stomach of necessary blood, and this is
also true of hard physical labor.
When a five horse-pewer engine is made
to do ten horse-power work something is
going to break. Very often the hard-
worked man coming from the field or the
office will “ bolt ” his food in a few min­
utes which will take hours to digest. Then
too, many foods are about as useful in the
stomach as a keg of nails would be in a
fire under a boiler. The ill-used stomach
refuses to do its work without the proper
stimulus which it gets from the blood and
nerves. The nerves are weak and “ ready
to break.” because they do not get the
nourishment they require from the blood,
finally the ill-used brain is morbidly wide
awake when the overworked man at­
tempts to find rest in bed.
The application of common sense in the
treatment of the stomach and the whole
system brings to the busy man the full en­
joyment of life and healthy digestion when
he takes Dr. Pierce’s Pleasant Pellets to
relieve a bilious stomach or after a too
hearty meal, and Dr. Pierce’s Golden
Medical Discovery to purify, enrich and
vitalize the blood. The Pellets ” are tiny
sugar-coated pills made of highly concen­
trated vegetable ingredients which relieve
the stomach of al1 offending matters easily
and thoroughly. They need only be taken
for a snort time to cure the biliousness,
constipation and slothfulness, or torpor, of
the liver; then the “ Medical Discovery”
should be taken in teaspoonful doses to in­
crease the blood and enrich it. It has a
peculiar effect upon the lining membranes
of the stomach and bowels, toning up and
strengthening them for all time. The
whole system feels the effect of the pure
blood coursing through the body and the
nerves are vitalized and strengthened, not
deadened, or put to sleep, as the so-called
celery compounds and nerve mixtures do
—but refreshed and fed on the food they
need for health. If you suffer from indi­
gestion. dyspepsia, nervousness, and any
of the ills which come front impure blood
ami disordered stomach, you can cure
yourself with Dr. Pierce’s Golden Medical
Discovery which can be obtained at any
drug store in the country.
The recent arrest in Seattle, Wash., of
Aaron Jaffe by a United Slates internal
revenue officer for wholesaling liquor with­
out a license has disclosed one of he most
daring and dangerous frauds that has been
perpet aied against the government, and
against one of the most reputable and pop-
11 .ar whisky firms in the United States.
Numerous complaints have reached Moore,
Hunt & Co. of San Francisco, sole agents
on the Pacific Coast ol the famous old
Jesse Moore whisky, tba’ a counterfeit ar
tide wit* being largely sold in Washington.
I ne labels, bottler- and wrappers were eac1
so exact an imitation of the genuine as to
readily d*ceive the owners o f the origtial
brand. The contents were, however, as
might be expected, not even an imitation
but of so vile a character as to be readily
detected by any one who is familiar wit
the high quality of ill-Jesse Moore whisky.
Jaffe confined his operations to the sale of
case goods; therefore detrition was easy,
as was also success in disposing of his
goods, which l»ore the popular AA brand.
Ostensibly Jaffe was acting a* agent for
the ‘‘ Golden Medal Distilling Company ol
Chicago.*’ possibly a mythical concern. At
any vate. all bills were ma le out and re
ceipted in the name of that company
kfowever, in a type-written letter prepared
byJafle and mailed without signature to
liquor dealers in Washington, he openly
claimed that the whisky was spurious, but
that the label* and bottles were so success
fully imitated as to deceive even Jesse
Moore ik Co. or their agents, and in this
a ngle claim he was correct.
It hps been said that “ poor things are
never imitated,” which is a truism that
even Jesse Moore A Co. and M »ore, Hunt
<t Co. may accept with some small degree
of satisfaction, and the fact that the Jesse
Moore whiskies have become immensely
popular and are steadily superseding all
other brands of whisky on this Coast as
well as throughout the Eastern States, was
doubtless the strongest incentive to Jaffe to
embark in an illicit and fraudulent manu­
Selling liquor at wholesale without a li
cense is a serious offense against • he Uni’ ed
States internal revenue laws, and Jaffe will
doubtless, as he should, upon conviction
receive a severe penalty f«»r his wrongdoing
Infringement «»f a copyright is also a seri-
<»u* off n>e. with severe penalt es. Alto
gether, n would seem that t’ D imitator ol
an excellent article has involved h niseif to
an extent which will necessitate his pro­
longed retirement from the whisky busi­
When arrested and confronted with the
evidence of his crime, Jaffe broke down
and made a full confession of his own guilt,
without, however, implicating his partners
in the fraud, whose identity is yet in doubt.
The facts will doubtless come out on the
trial. As the evidence against Jaffe is cu
mulative and abundant, there is no doubt
of his conviction.
This is the most daring attempt yet made
to imitate the Jesse Moore whisky, but the
manufacturers may find some satisfaction
in the fact that the culprit is suppressed
Moore, Hur t & Co. will vigorously push
the prosecution of Jaffe for fraud in coun­
terfeiting their trade-mark and labels.
Carnot ami Joan Carries.
The death of Jean Carries, the «cnlp*
tor, recalls an anecdote in which he and
the late President Carnot were the prin­
cipal actors. Tho artist’s busts and
figures at the Champ de Mars excited the
admiration of all, and they were de­
servedly classed in the first rank. M.
Carnot, when on his visit to the salon,
noticed an old man, who seemed much
moved on seeing him, standing before
the works of art of the sculptor. Some
one said to the president, alter pointing
out the artist: “ Here is need for repara­
tion, M. le President Carries is one
of our most skillful men of art, and he
is not yet decorated.” Forthwith M.
Carnot detached from the buttonhole of
one of the officers of the military house­
hold in the place of a cross of the chev­
alier a cross of an officer of tho Legion

breast of Jean Carries. The next day,

Once Senator Stanford was traveling

The train had stopped at a small town,
and the senator was leisurely strolling
back and foilh on the platform at the
depot A baggageman was unloading
trunks, and in doing so carelessly pitched
one onto the platform, and it burst
open. The senator looked at it and re­
marked, “ Weil, that’s a shame. ” The
baggageman impudently asked, "D o you
own this trunk?” The answer came
quickly, "N o, young mat hut I own

The Royal Baking Powder is the pur­

and has received the highest award at
all the great international and State
fairs, wherever exhibited in competition
with others.
The judge of awards on baking pow­

Wiley, writes that the impertinent
claims of other companies that they re­
ceived the highest award for strength
and perity are false; that no such awards
were given them.
Dark was tlie house and cheerless.
And fast fell the r~ . from without;
My heart was chilled by the morning.
And besieged by many a doubt.
And I said: “ There i no •:»>•„» 1 in trying.
The old year is dying, dying.
Many hearts that were glad
Are weary and sad.
And the world is filled with the sighing.”
The good man came in whistling.
Though the rain fell fast without;
He cheered my heart with his Joy song,
And scattered my every doubt.
And he said: “ W e’ll just keen on trying.
▲ new year will spring from the dying.
Many hearts shall be glad
That now are so sad.
And songs shall grow out of the sighing.”
—E. ii. Chase in Homemaker.
They do not do so now, but iu bygone
times some o f the medical students and
young practicing physicians of Detroit
were in the habit of stealing bodies for
dissection from the cemeteries adjoining
the city.
Ia those times there were two young
doctors, just out o f their teens, who
were partners in a practice which left
them with a great deal of time on their
hands. Both of them were strong of
head and of physical makeup, and either
of them could drink any other man in
Detroit drunk on cherry whisky and
Still retain his sea legs and his cool
head. And there were not a few sturdy
drinkers in Detroit then.
Nevertheless, while the young physi­
cians appeared to be sailing straight for
the rock of Grog, they put in a great
deal o f time, much of it stolen from the
night, advancing themselves in a profes­
sion to which they were courageously
devoted. One of them, it may be men­
tioned incidentally, advanced in the aft­
er days to a very high position in the
medical department of the United States
army, and the other became one of the
foremost physicians of the city.
One night the two determined upon
making a sally upon a certain cemetery,
to steal the corpse of a n a n who had
died of a peculiar disease, which was the
talk of the little town at the time, and
which threw medical circles into sharp
and in some instances furious discus­
sion. When they sauntered from their
favorite boozing place, they were pretty
well filled with cherry whisky, and the
hour was past 11 o’clock. Their cronies
came away with them, as that was the
customary hour for retiring unless it
happened to be a holiday occasion, when
“ W e W on't G o HomeTili Morning” was
sung, a song, by the way, which imparts
a flavor of the wine o f the immortals to
good average whisky—which in its turn
cheerfully and heartily reciprocates the
compliment, by causing the song to thrill
the soul like the war hymn of trium-
phant archangels.
Earlier in the evening they had made
arrangements for a horse and a light
wagon, spades, pickax, crowbars and
ropes. They knew the location of the
grave, and they started out. The night
favored them with opaque clouds which
hid a three-fourths faded summer moon.
Arrived at the desired place,' outside
the cemetery fence, they led the horse
into a strip o f woods, crossed the road
and entered the cemetery. Before pro­
ceeding to business they took a hearty
pull at the cherry bottle. With the aid
of their dark lanterns they found the
mark which had been made upon the
grave in the daytime. They then pro­
ceeded to adjust their dark colored sheet­
ing. The grave was pretty close to the
road, but they didn't mind that. The
sheeting, hung on sticks pressed into the
ground, screened the grave from all
points o f View, and the dark lantern was
hung in sfich a position that it shone in
a narrow,, ^¿rcle downward upon the
Both seXed their spades then and went
to work with a will at either end o f the
grave, space being taken at one end to
afford room for both to work. In this
way the muscular young fellows soon
reached the over box. The top o f this
was taken off and laid aside. In a little
while the cover of the coffin was un­
screwed, and in the haste of the moment
it was thrown out of the grave. It struck
the width of sheeting next the road and
threw it down.
The corpse was a very heavy one, and
it took the united efforts of both the doc­
tors to raise it in the narrow space of the
grave. They managed to stand it up at
the end o f the grave and then concluded
that the best thing to do was to have one
of them lift from below and the other
from the top. To this end one of them
proceeded to climb out o f the grave, but
just at that moment their blood was
frozen in their veins by a piercing shriek.
On the night chosen by the young uoc-
tors for their raid on the cemetery R.
William Green, a suburban beau, whose
characteristics were of the hue of his
name, and whose courage was utterly
disproportioned to his tall, gaunt frame,
was returning homeward in company
with Mary S------, as beautiful a country
girl as ever tripped over the dairies and
as bright and intelligent as she wag beau­
tiful. People often wondered then how
a beauty of such manifest superiority of
character could see anything attractive
in a fellow like Bill Green, hut from this
coign of time the riddle is easily rea d -
beaus were very scarce in the township
of H----- in those days, and lie ice a girl
had no choice. It was said that they
were affianced, but this was not true.
Something in Mary’s conduct had held
William back from declaring himself,
although she readily allowed his atten
tion and refused the proffers of escort
of a certain newcomer in the field.
That night the couple had been to a
party, and the shortest and indeed the
only way to their respective homes was
by the cemetery road, unless it might be
across the rough fields, an impracticable
way in the dark.
As the twain approached the dark hoi
low of the road, which the bounds of the
cemetery touched. Mary natnr-dly drew
closer to her tall escort, and the touch of
femininity awakened in William the de­
termination to take advantage of her
tiinidity and pop the question. But Wil-
liam was a bit o f a coward, as already in­
timated. and the chill hour of Midnight,
together witn the contiguity of tue grave­
yard. was not to his liking. His heart
went pit-a-pat, not for the adored object
at his side, but because of certain noises
which the wind made among the bushes
in the cemetery, and he also fancied there
were footsteps behind him. His repressed
fears controlled his tongue, upon which
a proposal of marriage hung suspended,
although Mary pressed closer to his side
as they walked rapidly along.
As for the thoughts that were passing
through the shapely head of Mary at the
time, the lady has since said that she
knew from William’s actions that he
wanted to propose, and she frankly ad­
mits that he would have been accepted
on the spot, since she entertained the
idea that she would have been aban­
doned in the horrible place if she had re­
fused. On such little things do the piv­
ots of a life sometimes swing.
William was long in drawing his cour­
age to the sticking point. At length he
drew in a long breath, and tremulously
uttering the name that Byron and Bums
loved so fondly—“ Mary"—was about to
declare himself and ask for her hand, bnt
at that critical moment the disturbed
eyes of both were drawn to the cemetery
by the light o f the dark lantern. They
suddenly stopped in a palsy of fear. And
such a horrible sight as they saw!

and to bed, where he remained a very-

The shriek paralyzed the young doc­
tors for but a moment. They scrambled
hastily ont of the grave. One of them
seized the dark lantern and closed the
slide, and then both of them stood silent,
drawing quick breaths. Not a sound was
heard. It was a place remote from
houses, and they were satisfied that even

noon did a very philanthropic act. Mr.
Hinkley, in an address to the students
Sunday, urged the outgoing classes to
raise a fund for the purpose o f aiding
some poor but ambitious boy to get a col­
legiate education. The class of 1893, act­
ing upon his suggestion, have voted to
raise the sum of ¡$150 annually for four
years for this purpose. Some bright
young boy will be chosen from the Good
W ill farm. East Fairfield, and given the
sum of iffiOO to help him through college.
Of course it is expected that he will en­
ter Bowdoin.
This is an entirely new move on the
part of classes there, but it is hoped that
it will meet with approval and that suc­
ceeding classes will follow their example.

A I ad W h o W ould Murder For Fun.
A lad employed as a pony driver at the
Trowel Moor colliery at Stapleford has
been sentenced to six week*' hard labor
! for willfully damaging an endless wire
rope used for the purpose of bringing
tubs of coal up an incline. The strands
of the rope were found to be deliberately
cut in two places, and it was stated that
if the rope had parted the consequence
would probably have been a disastrous
loss o f life. As it w as th* entire work
of the colliery had to be suspended for
three-quarters of a day, and it appeared
that to bring aliout this temporary ces­

Coal Tar In Masonry.
The announcement is made in The
National Builder that what was at first
considered a doubtful experiment— viz,
the use of coal tar as a means of render­
ing masonry impervious to water, espe­
cially in positions exposed to diroct con­
tact with the latter— has proved a prac-
tically valuable resort. Used as a coat-
ing for masonry built up of very porous
stone, tar renders it quite impervious,
even at a depth of some 60 feet of wa-
ter, and, according to the experience of
those who have had much to do with
it, the article should be utilized in all
public buildings, particularly those de­
signed for the preservation of works of
ait, the dissolving uctiou of water, even
upou mortar of superior quality, being
well known; also the unfavorable effect
of the exudation of water chargod with
lime salts from the mortar. Tw o meth­
ods of using the tar are named— viz, in
a boiling state in one or several layers,
this being suitable for surfaces exposed
to tho air, or it may be made to flame
up before using, this being appropriate
to surfaces which have to be covered up.
