RID OF THE BODY.
"With All The Modern Improvements."
He was probably tlie wickedest man
ever lived; but lie stood my friend. He
has lived in every State and Territory
from Georgia to California, and wtiere
cver lie went a flock of stories would fol
low him. First one thing would be
whispered and then another, and finally
the whole would settle down about him
in his new habitation, and he'd have to
pull up stakes and move on again. I
met him in Galveston. His main show
of business was that of a speculator in
merchandise on a small scale, and in the
fall he would do a good deal in cotton
as a sort of go-between the planters and
the agents of the New Orlcati's houses.
lint he could turn Ins hand to gambling
or almost any business, and was always
for a speculation or a bet. In Oalves-
ton, however, when 1 got accquaintcd
with him, he was working as overseer in
one of those large buildings recent y es
tablished for the curing of Texas beef
in the carcas by bleeding to death, and
injecting a prepared brine into the emp
ty veins by means of a powerful force-
pump, lie was not much liked about
the establishment, but he stood my
friend, and I never harm those who
don't harm me. His name was Flint
I had hired out as a book-keeper of
the establishment. Une day l'arsons and
1 was tooling with a litttlu nigger that
used to do jobs aboutjthe place. We had
put him in an empty brine vat to both
er him.and when he would get up almost
to the tori, wed push him back again;
just to see the nigger climb. One time
he had got nearly out, and 1 reckon 1
must have pushed a little too hard. At
auv rate he loll uacK and broke nis necK
ibis took me back a little, but 1 arsons
just threw an old blanket over the body,
and toiu me io come oacK ui uie owce
so as not to attract the attention of the
. . I 1 . 1 I ! 1 . . ill
hands before thev went to dinner. He
said he'd stand bv me.

with the body?"
Uh, the bodv! Don t you trouble
yourself about that. Iv'e got rid of
bodies in a heap worse place than this.
I planned for just such a ease as this two
weeks before 1 took the place. 1 ou see
I had my eyes on a low down chap that
was book-keeper, uelore you and want
ed to put on airs. He wasu't safe
about this place, anyhow, but he got
sick, and 1 sort o' let up on him, so as
to give Providence a fair show, like and
alterwards he went away.
"Uut where shall we bury itf" "liury
it. Uurvin' ain't no way to get rid of a
body. It's too hard work that is, if you
want to bury it away lrom the dogs and
hogs. The water is a heap better, if you
know how to nx things. 1 ho worst job
I ever had, 1 got rid ot by water. Isev
er risk a current; eddy water is the best,
Get vour weight heavy enough,- and
fasten 'em on with ropes or wire, then
bruise the body all over without breaking
thesikntosct it bleeding, and tattoo
the face a little, or mash it in, to dis
guise it, and you will bud the water
your best fiieud. Uut I'll iix. tho body
Parsons kept an eye on mat urine vai
all the afternoon. At night, after sup
per, ho left our boarding house and in a
short time came back, with three or four
small sealed tin preserved-fruit cans,
aud said to me, with a wink, before a
crow tl of listeners, and to ray mortal
terror, that if I wanted to havo some fun
Pd better como along.
We eoon arrived at the factory, which
was situated just outside of the town.
We took the nigger out of the vat, and
Parson carefully opened the cans and
poured the liquor looking like , sugar-house-molasses
into , an open vessel.
Then tigging up one of the brine pumps
he inserted tbe tube iutA the jugular of
the corpse, and then slowly pumped the
w hole of the molasses about two quails
into the veins and arteries of the
body. We couldn't get much in, be
cause the blood was there yet, and clot

that there was enough in he con Id taste

pistol, observing nt the Hump time flint

pistol tightly to tho stump of a sapling,
putting it directly(at'the corpse, and af
ter he had fastemjl one end of a ball of
small twin to the trigger, he cocked
the pistol and began to walk slowlv
back to the factory, unwinding the ball
of twine as he went. At this point I
began to think him crazy, and remon
strated with him, but he Implied mo
aside, so to speak by a manner he had,
anu went on siowiy until we got to the
factory. Then tnniinir around Iim ritiinf-
reiuarked that he didn't believe thpv
would ever find that bodv, and imme
diately gathered up tho' slack of the
string and gave it a jerk. I was stand
ing just behind him. I heard a noise
like tlie sharp crack of five thousand ri-
nes, lelt a rustling of wind nast tne nnd
found myself sitting on tlie ground
with Parsons in my lap. Then the whole
thing flashed upon my mind.
He had filled the nitreer with nitro
1 he concussion of the nistol bullet
had exploded it with a result that can be
imagined. We made our way back to
the boarding-hout I was trembling
and uncertain, butfarsons couldn't get
done to every body about the fun we'd
had with a little nitroglycerine; and
when people talked about ' heariii the

cAjiosioii, ne would urea k out with a
boyish, chuckle of pride: "That was us!"
All next day he was out in the woods
with every body that came along show
ing them the hole in the ground and the
Daro branches ot the trees all about the
spot where the explosion occurred,
"from about as much ot the aoir-goned
stuff," he would explain," "as you could
noia in your mouth."
Late in the afternoon the mother and
grandmother of the nigger came into the
factory inquiring whether anyboy had
seen him. Parsons winked at me when
he saw them coming and whispered that
"I needn't be afraid of there being a
funeral in that family this time." He
told them when they asked him, he had
not seen him since yestarday noon, and
didn't want to see him again. He was
a trflin," no account boy around the
place, anyhow. He reckoned he must
have been somewhere around when the
explosion took place." The latter rath
er correct opinion finally prevailed and
the whole matter forgotten.
ihe last time I saw Parsons was about
six months alterward. lie was just
starting overland for California. lie
had left Galveston the dav before, but
had hung around theoutskirts and came
back under cover at night for some
things he had left in haste. I never
asked him the particulars.

Number Seventeen, so says the Tele
graph, tiring of her fractional wedded
life with lirigham loutig, has sued in
the Gentile courts for a divorce, a niensa
et thoro, and asks for alimony. V ith
out stopping to enquire why she gets a
divorce.or how she will get a divorce,
by tlie Gentile law, which does not re
gard Number Seventeen as a legally
married woman at all, there are oiner
features of the case which are worth
considering. Number Seventeen desir
ing a divorce, it is lair to presume mat
Number Seventeen is a lone, lorn dis
contented woman, who has failed to dis
cover any Cupids, roses, or rainbows in
her corner ol the matrimonial paradise,
and, is, therefore, determined to secure
a whole man before it is everlastingly
too late, rather than pine away ou the
fractional section of one any longer. It
to be presumed furthermore, that
Number Seventeen must have been more
or less a stuuoorn ana recalcitrant, wo
man who has been subject to family disci-
pline. Perhaps she was a Xantippe, wh
made it is so lively for Mr. Young ths
he was compelled to banish her from bed
and board, whereupon, we presume, sue
has got mad, and is striking out for an
increase of privileges, by a decrease of
martial relations. Whatever may be the
cause, it is evident enough that there is
a row in the house, and that the one
soul with 46 hearts, which do not beat
as one, has got an episodo on hand
which lie has never dreamed of before.
What ho will do remains to be seen.
He must do something, otherwise Num
bers One to Seventeen and Numbers
Eighteen to Forty-Six, inclusive, may
pick up their46 carpet-bags and 92 band
boxes some fine morning, and leave Mr.
Young to eat his breakfast alone and
take caro of the Co or 70 youngsters du
ring the day, which of itself is sufficient
ly appalling to contemplate without sug
gesting any further horrors. The Shah
of Persia, could easily solve the difficul
ty by shortening in his wives the length
o"f a head eaeli, or quietly dropping
them into the Persian Gulf neatly sew
ed up in a Camel's Hair shawls, and
then ordering a fresh invoice. Had Mr.
Young the absolute powers of the Shah,
ho might drop them into Salt Lake,
the saline properties of which would for
ever keep tbem from spoiling, and there
they might float as a warning to future
wives not to turn back, the same use
to which Lot's wife was put by a similar
Tho action ' of Number Seventeen
shows that she is not very proud of Mr.
Young, and she probably is only one of
the 40 others ' who indulge in the same
feeling. The woman w-ho can get up
any interest in the 1-46 part of a man, as
men average, must be a curious sort of a
woman. Hereabouts, and in most all
communities less enlightened than Utah,
it is extremely difficult to get a woman
interested in a whole man, and, even
after getting interested, some of them
get tired and want a change to relieve
It takes a great many relays of men
here before a woman gets thoroughly in-
trKtd in one man. Wnen JNumoer
ired to Mr. Yming, she was not by any
means tnndo 17 times happy,' but. she
was only hnppy in the ratio of 1-17 to I,
ami this Kina'll stock of happiness lias
since been steadilvd ecreasing until 't ii
now represented by the ratio of 1-46 to
with the possibility of still further reduc
tions. A woman who rould be satisfied
with this itifiiitesitnal doe of happiness,
would go into eestaeie" of delight if ho
had an opportunity to be hanged. Then
it must be remembered that, when Nnm
berTwo married Mr. Young, she not on
ly had to havethf) consent of Mr. Young
but also the consent of NutnlK-r One,
and so on down, so t hat when Nnmber
Seventeen promised to love, cherish
and obey her fractional section of that
gentleman, if she did so, she not only
had to have hn consent, of N limbers
One to Sixteen inciiivr;. This, as the
worthy Eeeles was wont so often to re
mark, "ec- 'ard'' What, woman in
this free and enlightened community
would ever get married if she had to have
the consent of sixteen other women?
And how the chances diminish! The
next woman that marries Mr. Young
has got to ask 4G others, and receive 4J
derisive affirmatives. We say affirma
tives, for we presume not one of them
would apply in the negative. J laving
got caught themselves, we have no doubt
they dosire and contrive also that all
other women shall get caught on the
same princible that a man got into
the Sons Of Malta that society which
so worried good )t. Bhinchard he was
always eager that all his friend. should
get in immediately Such is the perver
sity of human nature.
We think that we have shown good
grounds why Number Seventeen should
be discontented with 1-46 of a man, 1-
46 of a table, 1-40 of a pocket-nioiiev,
1,40 of the children, and at having to
find her 1-40 of the children among the
ciuer 4j-oo, an bearing a tainiiv resem
blance, and a'.l loung. It is another
question, however, whether Number
Seventeen should have a divorce, and
still another whether Number Seventeen
can have one if she should. When Num
ber Seventeen bestowed her maiden af
fections upon Mr. Young, Number Sev
enteen knew what she was doing. She
knew that sixteen others had been
through the same ceremony. She knew
that many more would in all probability
do likewise and she knew that she
would be sandwiched in with the whole
of them, and would have to take her
share of the hard luck.
Number Seventeen knew that it must
take a very long time before Mr. Young
could take her out buggy-riding, and
that several months, perhaps years,might
elapse before he could get away from
the other Mrs. Youngs, long enough to
call upon her, and look after the child
ren. Having therefore deliberately put
her finger in the fire, knowing the result
why she could complain if her finger
smarts.' r?he took .Mr. oung for let
ter or worse, just as the other sixteen
did who preceded her, and as twenty
nine others have done since, and why
shouldn't she keep her 1-46 part, wheth
er it is good or bad? Number Seven
teen knows very well that Number Ono
was the legitimate wife of Mr. Young,
and that, as far as a wife's privileges un
der the law are concerned, a woman in
Kamschatka is just as well off as she.
There is no doubt Number Seventeen
got into a bad 6crape when she maried
lirigham. but she knew it was a bad
scrape, and that sixteen others were in
the same scrape. Uut even if she should
have a divorce, how is that to be ob
tained when she has not been married
under the laws of the Gentile courts in
which she seeks relief?
How can she be released from a mar
riage which has never lawfully taken
place? hat comfort, therefore, can
she expect to find? The only solution
we see for Number One is to apply for a
divorce, and N umber-1 wo rortv-ix in
elusive resign. But as Number One has
the only right to the old gentleman's
property, and has been waiting for it a
long time, and she probably won't do
nnvthinir of tho kind. The "best thing
Number Seventeen can do, inasmuch as
she has never been legally married to Mr.
Young, is to quit the old reprobate, pack
her trunk and go West, where she may
yet live to marry some estimable whole
man, and Bread her days in peace and

The Story of a Captured Russian.
extract a to
the New York Herald details an inter
view with a released Iiussian :
In 1869, in the earlv spring, wo wera
at Ak-Djulpas, a post station on the Aral
Sea, north of fort No. 1, in order to fur
nish the beet to the soldiers. A small
post had been established there, and my
tamer and (alter his death) 1 bad a con
tract to supply all the garrisons of tba
posts in this district with beef. At this
nine there was a great deal of dissatis-.
faction among the Kirgheezes, for the
Government was establishing some new
eguiaiions, and among other things
made the taxes three roubles on a kibit-
ka, instead of one rouble and a half, aa
it was before These Kirgheezes had been
worked on by men sent from Khiva, and
were very discontented, and when finally
they rebelled against our government,
they asked aid from the Khan.
Ihe Khan sent word he would
send them an army, but that first they
must deliver up all Russians who were in
the county. Somebody gave information
that we were at Ak-Djulpas, and the
Kirgheez chief was ordered to bring ns
to Khiva. We had been there about
three weeks, tor we dared not go farther
south, and we were trading in small
wares with the Kirgheezes. Besides my
self and this young fellow, Zotoff, there
was another man who was sent back to
liussia n year ago. Well the Kirgheezes
came on us in n great number and took
us. Thetwj Cossacks who were at the
slaiion ran away aud got off, but after
ward Colonel Kiikim was killed there.
We were put on horseback and had to
travel night and day tor four or five days
around the west end of the Aral Sea.
The Kirgheezes treated us well enough,
as thej' wanted to bring tis in alive; but
we had very little water, and were al
most starved. We were all worn ont
with riding so far. When we got there
we were put up tor sale, and many peo
ple came and looked at us, and felt of us
lo see if wo were strong. Finally the Khan
himself sent and bought us for 250 tillas
apiece, or about 500 roubles. We were
then sent to one of the summer palaces
of the Khan, and set to work in the gar
dens. There we found several other
Russians; sonic as gardeners, others as
carpenters, and doing what they were
best fit tor. At the beginning they
shaved our heads and cut off our mus
taches, and wanted to force us to become
Mohamedans. Bat finally the Kahn said
we ought to do as we chose, and need
not be forced, so after that we were left
The Khau himelf is a young man, 23
years old, very mild and good natured,
but ho is very weak, and controlled by
an Afghan, who makes him do very bad
things. The government is very bad and
despotic, and it the Khan had his own
way he would have released us long ago.
He often used to walk in the garden, and.
sometimes talked to us pleasantly. lis
does almost nothing, and rarely goes
hunting, but amuses himself with his
wives and dancing boys. We were not
very badly treated, except nt first, nnd
often went into the city and to the ba
zar. Wo had the same food as the Per.
sian slaves, and in general lived much
as they did. I should think there were
25,000 Persian slaves there. We dressed
like the lest of the people, and no one
ever troubled us when we weut out. Of
course it we had tried to run away we
would have been hung at once. But if
we could manage to save money it wu
possible to buy ourselves; that is, w
must buy another slave to take our place,
and thon we could be free, but we never
could leave the country. There wera
some Russians there who had been there
for a great length of time. Soma
had become Mohammedans and had mar
ried several wives, nnd 'there waa one
