the bugle blast was welcomed by the
people in Pat Higgin's place, even
though the Apaches did escape, lor
they were all able to go home again.
Hut before starting away several 01 the
men rode over to the further side of the
creek to take a look at the Indian
whom Swcid had killed. They found
him on his back with his legs and arms
drawn up in a way that showed he had
died in much pain, and then they went
over, out of curiosity, to see where the
sighting shot struck. Ben Sexton was
in the lead, and astonished the rest by
beginning to yell as soon as he got into
"There's a shirt undrr that bush
reckon it's yours," he said t weid, not
believing what he said.
"You bet," said Sweid as he came
up, "and the thief's in it that stole
And that was true. Well buried
under the sand behind i sn ail bush
and a bli.ck of lava, after the mantlet
of Apache scouts, was the body of an
other Indian. Swtid's sighting shot
had really milted the rock he aimed at,
but had hit the unseen head of the
Indian close beside, and that brief
death struggle that followed had made
the movement and raised the dust thai
the watchers had seen. They buried
the bodies, but first stripped offSwtid'l
stolen shirt to keep as a remainder of
one of the CUfioUl incidents of a frontier
The Measles at Apia.
As was generally feared the much
dreaded measles have made their ap
pearance in our midst. Rumors of
their existence at Vaitele and Fugalii
reached Apia on the 25th ult., and on
the following day Dr. Funk and others
proceeded to the places mentioned and
ascertained that the rumors were, unj
fortunately, too true. How the com
plaint was first introduced it is hard to
determine, but it is asserted that
the germs were contained in a letter
which arrived from New Zealand by
the steamer Alameda. Immediately
on discovering that the disease was in
Samoa, Dr. l-'unk communicated with
the Goverment and Municipal Council,
who promptly acted in the wisest man
ner possible under the circumstances
to deal with the epidemic. The Gov
ernment issued a proclamation in the
Samotrt language, which contained
simple instructions as to how cases
were to be dealt with, what food ought
to be taken, and other directions,
which, if attended to, will prevent
mortality, and greatly modify the evils
which are almost certain to result from
the spread of the measles. The Munic
ipal Council was not behindhand in
its duty to the public. With com
mendable energy they at once
took steps to confer with tht
Health Officer, and ascertain if the
progress of the epidemic might be
arrested, and if not to endeavor as far
as possible to ameliorate the condition
of the sufferers. Tht y decided to en
gage the public hall as a hospital so
that early cases within the municipality
could be properly treated, as the health
officer was of the opinion that if such
was done the epidemic wo ;ld extend
in a less malignant form. Additional
police were appointed and the chief of
polit e was instructed to co-operate with
the health officer to the fullest extent
possible. The council resolved iisell
into a committee to meet each day and
report progress and act where neces
sary. On Tuesday it was decided to
quarantine H.M.S. Rapid, and accord
ingly the yellow flag was hoisted and all
communication with the shore stopped.
This step was considered necessary, as
the Rapid will shortly be going amongst
other groups of islands, and wishes
to avoid propagating ' the disease.
None of the other vessels in harbor
have been quarantined. Many fresh
cases have been discovered since the
above was written, and there can be no
doubt that the disease is established
amongst us. So far no deaths have
taken place, and if due attention is
paid to the simple and effective in
structions contained in the proclama
niations which have been issued, we
feel sure that the motalily will be but
slight. Sdmoa Herald.
