Saved Ity Martin.
Albert Martin tried and acquitted
in the United States court at Port
land last winter, on thchareof
killing U.S. Grant, last week saved
the life of a man on the Siletz reser
vation, by a heroic ueed.
Warreu Hall is the man that owes
his life to Martin. Mr. Hall in com
pany with a Mr. Mosier were float-
ine down the Siletz river in a boat
They struct a wire cable stretched
across the river and the boat cap
sized. Both seized the cable and
Metier managed to get to shore.
Being a large man Mosier's weight
pulled the cable seven and eight
feet under the water and Hall held
on to it until filled with water al
most beyond recovery. Martin,
seeing the dilemma, sprang into the
river and swam to Hall's rescue.
Mr. Hall was more dead than alive
when Martin brought him ashore.
Though his limbs were stiff and
flesh turning black, he was rolled
and worked with until restored.
The reign of Dionyfuus, the elder,
mn.bad an pr nf neliiRhness in the
world's history. Following the example
of the tyrant, his adherents in the Ile
of Sicily vied in obliterating from the
tablets of their memory every vintage of
that noblest principle of manhood which
recognizes man's I'ealty to his fellow.
amon,a Senator of Syracuse, by hn
opposition to Dionysius in his attempt
ed usurpation of power, was placed un
der sentence of immediate death.
Pythias, the time-tried friend of Da
mon, besought the tyrant to yrant him
a respite that he might bid a last tiire
well to those he loved. The denial of
his request was followed by the most
striking exemplification of pure friend
ship that ba-t ever illumined the pages
of history. Pythias, who well knew the
honor of his friend, offered himself as a
pledge for Damon's return, agreeing to
pay the penalty with his own life should
Damon prove false. Dionysius accepted
the protiered hostage and placed Pythias
in darkness and in chains, while his
friend of years hastened to the home
where loved ones dwelt.
His earthly alfairi are ppeedily ar
ranged, the la-t fond embrace is given,
he takes the lat look upon hiH friend-,
now frantic with grief, and starti to re
turn, but finds that his slave has slain
his steed. .Syracuse was leagues away,
he saw his day ot respite failing into
night, bis friend led to the scaffold ; he
heard his pledge of honor, the cry of
mockery without the prison walls.
Crazed at the thought of honor lost,
friend and friendship sacrificed, he seiz
ed a passiug steed, and, swifter than the
wind of heaven, flew on toward Syra
cuse and certain death. Aye, more; to
the rescue of his friend and the mainte
nance of his honor, to him sweeter than
life and home. As the last moment is
called and the executioner's ax is up
lifted over the head of Pythias, he rush
es through the gates, springs upon the
scaffold, redeems his honor and the life
of his friend.
This display of manhood and true
courage led captive the tyrant's heart,
who, remitting the death sentence of
Damon, sought admission to their
