passengers, all Jumaciaus, endeavored
to seize tie- lit.- boats. The third mate,
P.-rcy Sandi is, was forced to draw Iiis
revolver to prevent the men front the
steerage from leaving the burning
steamer in the three life boats, which
easily could have accommodated the
otherforty-fivepas.-. tigers and .mbets
of the crew, 'l ie a.ea. however, were
forced out of lb- boat by Captain
Walker ami bis nan. and when disci?
pline was restored preparations were
made for tin- saving of the women and
children on the vessel. Three lire boats
were lowered into the sea, which was
unite calm, and tie- ship's oHieers stood
by the rope ladders. Thus a panic wait
averted and tin- safety of liftv-six per?
sons ..ii board the Ardanhii assured.
The heat was so intense and 1 he
smoke was so heavy that it was Tor a

all ordered forward, and the women

THE BOUNTY JUMPER
HE PLAYED A PAYING GAME DURING
THE CIVIL WAR.
The JtlnSitat Harvest? Ware Reaped In
the Cloniug llay? of the Cuullict? Boa
ton's KrcHiocr Kxperlcuce With a GftUlg
of New Hampshire Kecrults.
When the civil war broke, out and thi J
eall In the north went forth for volun
leers, no bounties were paid, and nearlj
l,Oii(),iioo men volunteered with uo mort
pecuniary inducement than tho rcgulai
army pay. .After n time, however, volun
leering languished, mid to stimulate on
li.-tments bounties were offered by tho na
tion, the state ami the cities and towns.
This not bringing forward recruits in suf
licicnt numbers, the draft was resorted to.
Drafted men were paid smaller bounties j
or none at ail. and this fact sent into the I
service as volunteers many who wero lia?
ble to conscript ion.
Men who wa re drafted often, when able,
procured substitutes, paying at first f loo,
then ?200, then 9300, and finally, as avail?
able substitutes grew scarce, much larger
amounts. Many cities and towns obtained
the recruits needed to IUI their quotas un?
der tho various calls for troops by enlist?
ments in other localities, as men who were
willing to enlist wanted to be credited to
the places that would give them the most
money. The procuring of men to serve as
substitutes and to make up deficient
quotas grew into a business of itself, and
a very profitable one at that. "Substitute
brokers" quickly appeared in great num?
bers all ov< r the north, and they made
enormous profits by agreeing to fill quotas
at so much pet- recruit, providing men
whom they had induced tu enlist on the
payment of amounts much smaller than
those offered by the tow ns.
Urn- of the results of the payment of big
bounties was the coming into existence of
a class known as "bounty jumpers." The
various txitiliticsand gratuities toward the
end of the war rarely aggregated less than
$1,00(1 per recruit , and a great many hard
characters took advantage of thistuational,
stale and municipal liberality by enlist?
ing, gelling the money and deserting at
tin- first opportunity. Il is on record that
some of the.-c men "jumped" theirboun
tiesas many as '.iti times, each time clear?
ing from SI.nun upward. Generally the
desertions wero effected at the slate camps,
where recruits were herded until called to
the front, Sometimes, however, the boun?
ty jumpers did not get away utitil they
had been sei t to regiments in the field.
Uusilitlly the deserters left, singly, as op?
portunities arose, hut once in awhile
many would make a simultaneous break.
An instance of the lust mentioned sort
occurred in Huston, which created a sensa?
tion nl the time, tin Aug. 21, 1S?4, -150
recruits fur the First New Hampshire cav?
alry, under command of Major i 'uniinings
and guarded by a company <>f the Veteran
Hescrve curi s. arrived In this city by spe?
cial train fron Concord. They had all
been paid t heir big bounties the day be?
fore anil were to sail from this port for
Washington on the United States trans
inn-1 steamer Constitution. Arriving in
the old Huston and .Maine station at 11
o'clock in the morning, they were taken
uni.'cr convoy by a detachment of troops
from the licach Street barracks and a de?
tail of police und started on their march
to Hattery wharf, where the Constitution
lay waiting lo receive them.
A great, crowd, which, as The Herald of
the next day averred, "consisted mainly
of the lowest characters from north end,"
gathered around the detachment as soon
as it left the station, und Immediately it
got into Hay market squaro scores of tho
recruits threw away their knapsacks, blan?
kets, coats, caps and canteens and started
on the run in every direction, their escape
being covered by the toughs, who sur?
rounded the guards and prevented them
from firing on tho duserters. The police
pursued ami caught a number of the flee?
ing men, whom they brought back to tho
ofliccr in command, but ubout ffa succeed?
ed in getting away.
The remai ruler were marched down
Bluckstono to Commercial street and
thence to the wharf, but on the way still
more of them escaped from the ranks,
while ol hers Illing away their clothing and
equipments, until the pavement, along the
route of march was fairly carpeted. Many
hurled tlit-ir canteens at. tho officers, und
one lieutenant was struck over the head
with a beer bottle and knocked senseless.
At the wharf two men broke, away und
jumped overboard, und the guard fired at
them, wounding one so badly that he was
easily captured and killing the other, who
immediately sank, ll is hardly necessary
to add that the steamer did not linger at
tlni wharf after her uuruly passengers
In the course of the afternoon ten of tho
deserters were arrested by the police. One
was discovered tu be tin escuped convict

A Perfumed Ourliug.
Among t ho customers of a Columbia av?
enue drug store a few evenings ago was a
young colored man attired in a very Mushy
suit and with the nil- of a "real hot sport,
suh." Ho asked for 10 cents' worth of
perfumery, and tho druggist, sizing up
his taste properly, poured out an ounce or
two of the loudest smelling cologne in tho
store. In the meantime tho young "blood"
stood in front of u mirror admiring his
own shape. He confided to the druggist
that he was going lo see his best girl.
"Yo iieedn' wrap up do bottle, mls

"WhatI Pour it ull on your clothes, do

GOLD AND CRIMSON TROUT.
A Unique Variety That Huh a Secluded
Abode 1c a Creek lu Kansas.
"There uru trout in Whitney creek, a
tributary of Kern river, in Kansas," said
a veteran New York angler, "tho like of j
which don't exist in nny other water on
the face of the globe. The.su trout have
their ui wide in tho upper 'waters of the
creek, anil it is not invaded by uny other
breeds of trout that swarm in the waters
below simply because they cannot get at
it. About six miles from the bead of
Whitney cm k there is a waterfall 150 feet
high. Tho rock down the face of which
the water tumbles is solid and smooth
from base to summit. There arc no pro?
truding ledges nur uny hollows by means
of which the other trout, w ith leap after
leap from lodge to ledge and hull.,w to hol?
low, could scale this precipice, as they do
tit thousands of high waterfalls elsewhere.
Consequently the trout above the falls
have never been disturbed by interlopers
of a different, variety, ami they live by
themselves in the pure, culd water, :i must
splendid family of fresh water fish.
"These trout uro literally bespangled
with burnished gold and dashed with spots
of the brightest crimson. 'The first lime 1
ever saw one of these trout 1 actually
thought it had been decorated with tlal.es
of gold leaf by its possessor and that. Us
reil spots hail been heightened in color
with the brush. But this is their natural
ornamentation, and when they are taken
from tho water and tho sunlight strikes
them they glitter and sparkle like a harle?
quin. They are called the golden trout.
Their habits are the same us those of ihe
ordinary brook trout, with ull its giimy
qualities. Their Hush has Ihn same Davor.
Their splendid beauty is what, places them
ut. the head of this great piscatorial fam?
ily, famous fur its beauty. How this ram
Variety of trout came tu he iilunu in those
Upper waters of Whitney creek is one uf
nature's mysteries."?New York Sun.
