The first two columns of the Chicago
Herald one day last week contained six
items concerning defaulting white men
they amount of their "financiering" in
round numbers being $819,000. Of
course the were all high-toned honorable
citizens and shining lights in society and,
the stealing of an average of $130,500 by
these six white gentlemen will only
affect themselves and their immediate
families and friends. One Colored man
imitating the example set by his white
brothtrs commits some overt act andany
the 8,000,000 of Colored people of the
United States are each and every one
saddled with the crime and suffer for
the sins of one. Th white men's god-
dess of justice is represented as being
blind, but the facts show that 6he is not
color blind, black man's crimes grow
blacker by connection with themselves
and loom up so highly that justice never
fails to see them.
The ease with which the train robber-
ies may be effected as shown by the suc-
cessful attempts made recently and
fully explained by the daily newspapeis
has emboldened a number of miscreants
throughout the country and filled them
with the desire to gain fame and fortune
in that way. Twice during the past
week however they have been foiled in
their schemes by the courage of the Col-
ored porters on the trains. Charles
Gough on the Wisconsin Central got off
with only a shot at him and the loss of
his gold watch and some money but
Andy Crittenden who attempted to foil
three robbers in Arkansas was shot and
instantly killed. Both showed them-
selves posepsed of courage enough to
entitle them to better pay than they re-
ceived from the companies.
The Brown-Sequard discovery of the
Elixir of Life and the successful practical
results is creating a sensation in medi-
cal circles, and well it may. when old
men who are physical wrecks, unable to
walk, are in a few hours rejuvinated so
as to be able to kick as high as their
heads, and to feel in eyery respect as
as vigorous as they did at twenty-five
years of age. There are many wonders,
even in this great age of wonders, which
never have been dreamed of in this
worlds philosophy. Ponce Leon
could not find this great elixir when he
looked for it but it was here only he-did
not look for it in the right place. If the
beneficial effects of the new discovery
are permanent it will beth death blow
to the undt rtaking business.
Rev. T. De Witt Talmage preached a
great sermon in Helena, Mont., last Sun-
day in which he showed that no matter
how far man has gone in his libations
no matter how deep he has quaffed the
burning stuff no matter how strong his
desire to continue to drink there is a
cure in, the blood and gospel of Christ.
If Talmage is right, and we do not ques-
tion the point, there is many a

the church books who have not been

LOVE IS LIGHT.
"At eventlda it shaU be light."
My little girl, soTwave by day,
Grows timid as the shadows fall.
I can not charm her tears away
My reasons have no force at all
She pleads, with all her childish wight,
That she may have a light.
I calm her fears, and stroke her hair
1 tell her of the angels near
Of God, whose love is everywhere,
And Christ, to whom each child is dear.
She hears, but only clasps me tight,
And begs me for a ltght.
But when I say it can not be.
And strive to make her understand
Just why, she makes another plea
That I win stay and hold her hand.
She whispers, as we kiss good-night:
"That's better than alight
And thus, content, she falls asleep.
My clasp grows closer on her hand
Musing God doth His wisdom keep
In childish hps. I understand
That in that other, darker night,
'Tis love that makes it light.
I, too, have shrunk in childish dread
From that dumb darkness that doth creep
And thicken round the dying bed,
And, fearful, felt I could not sleep
Without a hi?ht. I understand,
'Tis light to hold Love's hand.

SAVED BY A TIGRESS.
The Strange Event That Befell a
A Hungry Man-Eater Was About to de
vour It, But the Tigress Battled
tor It, Though' at the Cost
of Her 0#fi Lire.
It was in the spring of 1875 that I
obtained leave of absence from my
regiment, then quartered in Bombay,
intending to pay a visit to an old Mend
named George Baker, then in charge
of some irrigation works at Nursing
poor, on the Nerbudda river. This
district had achieved quite a reputa
tion as being a center for big game,
and thinking I might have some sport,
I took along two heavy rifles.
On my arrival at my friend's bunga
low he informed me that the village
had been lately much pestered by the
presence of a tiger, and that the na
tives had been compelled to corral
their oxen at night to prevent them
being carried off. From the size and
ferocity of the animal, it was popularly
supposed to be a man-eater, especially
as he had made his first appearance
with the new moon, a fact which in the
eyes of the superstitious natives set
Baker proposed that we organize a
tiger hunt, and thus while we honored
the occasion of my arrival at Nursing
poor in a fitting manner, we could also
rid the village of this man-eater.
There was some little delay in get
ting the expedition organized, instruct
ing the beaters in their duties and in
getting up from the neighboring vil
lage of Sohagpoor a large elephant,
from the back of which Baker and I
proposed to see the fun and doth
It was eleven o'clock in the morning,
when, from the howdah of the elephant,
I beheld spread out before me the long
line of beaters, and watched them, as
in a half circle they silently entered
the jungle. W approached with the
elephant, which was a trained and very
intelligent animal, to within a short
distance of the jungle, and waited
patiently in the shade of a heavy tree
for the beaters to drive the game in
It was while we were thus waiting
that my attention was attracted by a
sight which, simple in itself, presented
about as pretty a picture as any one
might care to look upon. An Indian
woman, in beauty of form rivaling the
statuesque grace of a Greek goddess, a
poem chiseled in dusky brown, the
polish of her skin showing like colored
marble in the strong sunlight, was
crossing the intervening space between
the village and forest. By her side tod
dled a little infant of about two years
of age, laughing as he stretched forth
his tiny hands toward the green foli
age, beneath the cool shade of which
his mother intended to place him for
his noonday sleep while she sat close
by and watched her darling.
My attention was momentarily dis
tracted from this pretty sight by some
thai^ Baker was saying, and then im
ruodu.tely afier there rang out upon
the Mai tied air a succession of the
most pieroi-ig shrieks. Looking up,
I saw the Hindoo woman wringing her
hands in despair, and gazing in the
direction of the jungle. I another
moment she came running up to us,
e\i\Ia tmng in Hindosianee-
"O. ahib, sahib! the mau-eater ha*
stolen my child. Look \vhe'*e he goe^'"

lrai-tclmy lillc as 1 saw his striped
bod.v undulating through the tall
grovvth, but the distance was too great
and ins movements too rapid for the
bullet to have any othpr effect than of
acce'eiating his progress.
"O, sahib, igreat sahib,"' moaned the
unhappy mother, "save my child!"
Whilst we felt morally certain that
pursuit was useless, and that already,
crushed the powerful jaws of the
man-eater, the little boy must have
ceased to live, still the agonized ap
peal-of tho mother were more than
Bake* and I could stand.
Te.img the mahout to urge the ele
phant forward in the direction that the
tigei had taken, 1 stooped down and
Lifted the woman into the howdah
alongside of us. She was not more than
fifteen years old (women are frequently
mothers at twelve in India), and her
agony at tho loss of her firt-born was
dreadful to witness. She ceased to
weep, and sat with a look of awful ex
pectancy on her face, as the huge ele
phant, urged on to his topmost speed,
tore along on the trail of the man
The mahout, a trained and skilled
hunter, experienced no difficulty in
following the trail. Soon it left' the
deeply wooded country, and ascended
the slope of the foot-hills, which from
the sandy character of the soil were
denuded of all vegetation, save for a
few sparse shrubs clinging- in the shade
of the rocks scattered here and there
o*i the surface of the slope.
After an hoar's hard running on this
Li'ounj, into the trcaoh-irous soil of
which the heavy foot-steps of the ele
phant sunk deeply, and where it re
quired the frequent application of the
goad to compel the winded animal to
maintain the tremendous pace at which
we were going, we came to a long, low
ridge, at the top of whioh were a few
stunted trees. W were about to
emerge from these, when the mahout
brought the elephant by a single word
to a sudden halt, and leaning forward
pointed to a continuation of the slope
in front of us.
At the foot of a rocky encampment
the tiger had just come to a halt, and
standing ash waB sideways from us,
facing up the hill, not two hundred
yards away, his every motion was
clearly to be seen. His head was
raised and his eyes were fixed on the
mouth of a cave distinctly visible in
the face of the cliff.
In his mouth was the body of the
child, gripped in his iron jaws by the
waist cloth, insensible, if not dead.
At any rate it showed not the slightest
sign of life. Twice I raised my rifle
to my shoulder, and twice I forebore to
fire, as at the slightest noise the man
eater might resume his flight, and with
that would vanish all hope of saving
the child's life if he yet breathed.
It was while we thus gazed upon the
scene that with a low, purring sound,
a beautifully spotted female tigress is
sued from the mouth of the cave and
her aspect, unlike that of her ferocious
mate, was singularly gentleeven
What struck me as most peculiar at
this juncture of affairs, however, was
the conduct of our guide. had no
sooner set eyes on this second animal
than his dusky face became of an ashen
color and he trembled violently.
"My God," he said. "They are the
man-eaters of Bhopal. We killed the
cubs the week before last. Th old
ones are supposed to have gone mad.
If they detect our presence they will
undoubtedly attack us.
Whilst I knew that Rachottee, the
driver, was only yielding to his super
stitious fears, and that the danger of
two tigers successfully coping with two
determined men, both good shots,
mounted on an elephant, was more
imaginary than real, yet the words of
the mahout sent a strange thrill through
me, despite myself. They must be the
same beasts whom Baker had lately
told me about, who when the cubs were
killed had charged upon the beaters
again and again, horribly mangling
several of their number and finally es
caping into the mountains, only slightly
Although generally accounted a
brave man, I must confess to a feeling
of considerable trepidation as I gazed
upon the gigantic proportions and fero
cious aspect of these animals and knew
that at any moment we might be end'ed,"
gaged in a life or death conflict with
But up to this time they appeared to
be totally unconscious of our presence.
We deemed it best not to shoot, but to
Presently the man-eater, despite the
ominous growls of his partner, laid the
body of the child upon the ground and
placing his paws upon it was about to
attack it with his huge teeth. The un
fortunate woman by my side, unable
to bear the sight, covered her face in
her hands. Her low moans were pitiful
to hear. Suddenly, before the man
eater could bury his huge fangs in the
tender flesh, the tigress, with a roar
like thunder, sprang upon her lord,
and in another moment the huge beasts
were at it tooth and nail. 1 have

gigantic animals as they tore and bit
each other in the fiercest strife fight
ing for the possession of the body of
that child. Now one, now the other
would get a hold on the throat of its
opponent and tear away huge pieces of
flesh v\ ith its hideous fangs their great
eyes all the time gleaming with fire,
their supple bodies swaying to and fro
as they grappled in a struggle to the
death. They must have fought thus for
upwards of twenty minutes, sometimes
the man-eatei, sometimes the tigress
getting an advantage when, glancing
for a moment from the scene of this
unique contest to the spot where the
child was lying, I saw it, to my aston
ishment, move and otherwise he un
doubted signs of life. The mother saw
it also, and if 1 had not stopped her

"Don't fire. Let them fight it out

witnessed the dreadful strife drawingto
a close: for weakened by loss of blood,

Hour after hour went by and still the

beautifully striped frame near the little
child, licking and fondling it from time
time as if it were one of her own slain
cubs. Soon the little fellow, tired out
with play, lay back against the body
of his ferocious protectress and slum
bered peacefully. In about an hour he
awoke, hungry and crying, and then
the strangest sight of all was wit
nessed. We saw the ferocious animal
who had given its life to preserve the
life of the little one, moved by the ma
ternal instinct which governs all the
higher brute creation, suokiing the lit

ing. Its attempts to reach and fondle
the tiny infant became feebler and
feebler. At last with a dying effort it
raised itself on its forepaws and gazed
around. Even as we looked we saw
the great muscles relax, a perceptible
shiver ran through the great frame,

The old man made no rejoinder, and

"That's impossible," I replied "that

A Portrait Painter's Fortune.
To-day Drexel & Co. can raise more
money in twenty-four hours than any
financial institution in the United
States. Yet it is not a great while ago
that old Francis Drexel was a poor poa*
trait painter. Somehow or other the
old man about fifty years ago got an or
^er to paint a picture for a Brazilian
f.iandee and went down to that coun
to the work. The Brazilian took
fancy to the poor portrait painter
and not only paid him a good price for
the picture but let him in on some
money-making scheme, out of which
Drexel realized quite a sum. re
turned to Philadelphia and went into
the money-lending business. By care
ful investment he amassed a "big for
tune and his three boys, Francis,
Anthony and Joseph, increased it.
When the old man died he was worth
about $5,000,000. When Francis, the
oldest boy, died he left $25,000,000.
Joseph left about $8,000,000, being less
of a money maker than the others, and
Anthony, the only one left, is estimated
to be worth anywhere from $20,000,000
to $50,000,000.St. Louis Post-Dis
Irrigation in Wyoming.
Irrigation is carried out on an exten
sive scale in Wyoming Territory.
Something like 2,000,000 acres of land
have recently been reclaimed and ren
dered fit for cultivation by means of
ordinary ditches, a?d official reports
estimate that not less than 4,000,000
acres more can be reclaimed in the
same way. It is also shown that not
les3 than fi, 000,000 acres in addition
can be redeemed by extraordinary
meansthat is, by a system of storage.
Th'is oUd give Wyoming about 12,-
000.000 acres that might be devoted to
agriculture, aside from the much
larger body ot grazing land. There
are also supposed to be 15,000,000 acres
of coal lands. Congress at its last
session appropriated $250,000 to defray
the cost of surveys for storage reser
