IN A FIRST-CLASS
PILOT KNOB, MO.
Last Monday morriiDg' W red laid to rae,
Pa, I wish you would take that trip
you bare been talking- about the fore
part of this week; for I want to jjo
down to Sam's and go hunting the last
part of the week." So I thought it
was such beautiful weather I would
go, for this summer weather won't last
always. So I got on Old Bill and rode
down to an old friend's near the Silver
Mines. This man's father was my old
brick boss, and his wife was a daugh
ter of the woman that made rae dance
at the wedding. And she was the first
girl I played with at the first party I was
ever at in this country. And such a
laugh as we had as we talked of that
old-fashioned play! It was this way:
This girl's father had got a set of pine
logs hewed to build a nice hewed log
house, as he was getting quite a family
of girls. So one day he invited all of
the neighbors on his creek and all of
us Arcadia Valley folks to the house
raising; and when all of the folks that
could go from all of the settlements
were there, there wasn't a very large
crowd. You see, the country wasn't
very thickly settled and there weren't
a great many girls in the country.
Any decent sort of a girl was at a
premium at that time. Most any sort
of a girl was in demand.
Well, I believe there was but one
girl from our neck of the woods, and
she had more fellows chaising after
her than any other girl about here.
As near as we could count up the oth
er night, there was a girl by the name
of Amy; she was the boss girl of her
settlement; then there was her sister
Lizzie, and a younger one.Eliza Wiles.
Then there were about five or
six not quite so old nor quite so big.
Then there were about six or seven
little ones, about two-thirds grown;
that's all. Well, there was just about
two fellers to every girl, which made
it kinder unhandy to give every feller
a girl at the same time.
There were three fellows that
thought they were the top of the pot,
and every time the piay-master called
more barley." one or the other of
those fellows wouli go for one of those
top-cut girls, and when it came our
turn to come in we had nothing but
some of the little ones to choose from.
It was just exactly like grabbing suck
ers the biggest ones first all the time.
Well, some of those girls got kind o'
tired of playing with those fellows all
the time. They thought they would
like a little change. I was sitting on
a fellow's knee and he said to me, "If
you will cut that big fellow out, I'll
treat you the first time I meet you in
company." Ihe big lellow was stand
ing right before me as the fellow spoke
to me. I looked up and I saw the fel
low had heard what was said. Way
over to one corner I saw Amy looking
at me. I beckoned to her with my
hand, and she nodded her head. When
the leader called for "more barley,"
I made a spring to go around the fel
low, and he put his hand on my head
and pushed me back and spread his
legs out as wide apart as he could get
them. So I, as quick as a flash, dart
ed right through his legs and the girl
met me right in the middle of the
floor. Oh, how mad that fellow was!
He was just too mad for anything. He
said, "It's a fine time of day when the
gals get so smart they can't play with
nothing but cloth," and walked around
to one corner of the room and sat
down, and just sat and growled all the
rest of the night; for we kept that
thing up all night.
We had a good laugh oyer those old
time scenes; and then I read to them,
and how quick the evening passed off,
until all too soon bed-time came,
when I was shown to one of those old
fashioned beds, about two feet thick
and as soft as down.
The next morning I rode up through
what was in my hunting days called
The Barren Hollow" a valley be
tween two mountains, and it slopes
gently from the foot of each mountain
side. The valley is about four or five
miles long and half or three quarters
of a mile wide. The first time I was
ever in the valley there -had never
been a stick cut,or any attempt to set
tle the valley. It was in the month of
May, and such a sight a I saw I had
never seen nor have ever seen since.
There was not a tree or hardly a
bush in all of the valley, but the
ground was just matted with strawber
ry vines, and they were in blossom,
and such a sight I never saw. Acres
and acres of the valley just as white as
snow, with the blossoms. I meant to
have gone ont there when the berries
had got ripe, but I was too late; they
were all gone.
As I rode along, I found the valley
all settled up, and cleared up and in
crops. There are some beautiful
farms up the valley. I stopped at a
friend's house. As I rode up to his
nouse x saw mm ana nis boys very
busy shaving hoops. At this place I
was incited to "get down and have
your horse put up and you stay to din
ner.and then we want you to read some
of your Old Times to us; we don't take
any paper; so we want you to read to
us." At this bouse I saw lying on the
bed a large pile of home-made linscys
jeans ana other ciotnes. ine woman
said, I have made forty yards of
clothes this fall, and I am now eoinsr
to make my family's clothes."
looked at the clothes, and they were
nice: some in red and black checks,
some plain. At every farm I passed
saw flocks of sheep.
When I got to my old friend S.
bouse, whore I stayed the last night.
he was out cn a two or three days'
hunt, over on Crane Pond and Leath
erwood. Just at dark he came home
He had killed no deer, but he heard
bounds running deer. 1 tell you no
man can expect to kill doer in these
brush and thickets. The woods are
so thick you can't see a deer. Well,
don t you think, when we sat down to
supper, I saw a great big plate piled
high with honeycomb. Doc. said, !
am fixing up the fences and I am mak
mg straight fences. It don t take so
many rails, aud we can cultivate clos
er to the fence than with the old-fashioned
crooked fence." He said, "You
see that honey," and as he said so he
passed the plate. He said, "That's
wild honey. I cut down a tree for
stakes. When it fell I saw the bees
coming out of the body way up, and I
got out a fine lot of hone v."
In the morning Isaac showed me
some leather he had tanned. He said,
"We killed a little beef and sent the
hide to town, and we got SO cents for
it. I said, I'll tan my own leather,"
and this leather was just as soft and as
tough as any I ever saw. "We havn't
got up to putting on the polish yet,
but a pair of shoes made of that leath
er will look just as well as store shoes
after wading through mud a day or
two. So what's the difference?"
Well, I came home that day, and
felt as though I had had a good visit
all around. So good, I will try it
again some day. T. P. R.
The Merchant Navies oi the World.
Mr. M. G. Mulball, a well-known
statistician', has compiled for the De
cember number of the Contemporary
Review some instructive data about the
world's carrying trade, confining him
self to sea-going, and excluding coast-
ing vessels. The subject is one of pe- J
culiar interest to Americans, who re
membor that a few years before our
civil war we competed for this trade
with England upon equal terms.
The principal conclusions to which
the facts breught out by Mr. MoUaall
point are these: That Great Britain
KB . .!. ;
possesses 56 per cent, of t
power of the world; that t
tween Great Britain and
ie trade be-
is growing much more rapiuiy than the
general sea-going trade of the world;
that the seaman of Great Britain carry
more merchandise per man than those
of other nations, and four times as
much as British seamen carried in
1860; and, lastly, that Great Britian's
annual loss of tonnage by shipwreck,
as compared with tonnage afloat, is
only half the annual loss of other na
tions. Not only does the British flag now
hold the same preponderance at sea
which the Phoenicians enjoyed in early
times, and the Italians in the middle
ages, but the preponderance is increas
ing. Since 1840 the ocean-going. ton
nage under the British ensign has tre
bled, while the aggregate tonnage of
all other nations has only doubled.
To give the exact figures, the nominal
tonnage of Great Britain rose between
1840 and 1892 from 3,310,000 to 10.
230,000 tons, while the total nominal
tonnage under all other flags increased
only from 6,070,000 to 12.670,000.
But even this exhibit gives an inade
quate idea of the growth of British
shipping, owing to the larger propor
tion of steam vessels in Great Britain's
merchant navy. Allowing for the fact
that a steamer, being able to make so
many more trips a year, is held to
possess four times the carrying power
of a sailing vessel of equal tonnage,
Mr. Mulhall computes that the carry
ing power of the British merchant fleet
in 1892 was 26,720,000 tons, as against
a total carrying power under other
flags of 21,120,000 tons. That is to
say, it amounted to 56 per cent, of the
whole. Next to Great Britain, but at
a vast interval, came Scandinavia with
a carrying power of 4,243,00 tons;
next Germany, with 8,870,000 tons;
France, with 2,020,000 tons; then the
United States, with 2,680,000; and, fi
nally, Italy, with 1,410,000 tons. In
the case of the United States it should
be noted that the figures show a shrink
age in the carrying power at sea of
80,000 tons during the decade preced
ing 1892. We should also remark
that the increase of French carrying
power during the same decade was
very slight, notwithstanding the fact
that France pays about $2,000,000 an
nually in bounties on her sea-going
Inspecting Mr. Mulhall's table of
port entries, we find that those of the
United States increased between 1882
and 1892 from 14,660,000 tons to 18,
180,000, or 24.2 per cent.; those of
Continental Europe in the same decade
from 67,710,000 tons to 90,450,000, or
33.6 per cent.; those of South America
from 9,120,000 tons to 15,530,000, or
70.4 per cent., and those of the colon
ies, that term comprehending all the
transmarine possessions of the Europ
ean powers, from 41,390,000 tons to
51,230,000. The port entries of the
British colonies alone expanded with
in the same period from 25,710,000 to
39,620,000 tonb, or by 54.1 per cent.
Another table of the entries of vessels
bearing the British ensign into the
ports of the world verifies the saying
that trade follows the flag, by show
ing that the commercial relations be
tween Great Britain and her colonies
grow much faster than either the trade
of the ports of the United Kingdom or
the commerce between Great Britain
and other countries.
As regards the comparative efheien-
dy of British seamen, a carefully com
piled table of all the sea-going vessels
of the world, including all steamers
over 100 tons and all sailing vessels
over 50 tons, bring out the fact that in
all maritime countries taken together,
there is an average of 28 tons register
to each seaman, whereas in the case of
Great Britain the average is 38 tons
per man, or 40 per cent, more than
the usual proportion. Evidence of
superior efficiency is also afforded by
a table of wrecks collected from the
reports of the four countries which
furnish distinct returns upon the sub
ject. It appears that in the years 18-
88-89-90 the ratio of the tonnage lost
by wreck to tonnage afloat was for
Great Britain 2.4 per cent.; for Ger
many 3.2 per cent.; for France, 4,5
per cent., and for the United States
6.8 per ceDt. Mr. Mulhall admits.
however, that the whole of this start
ling difference cannot be ascribed to
the superiority of British seamanship,
for the reason that the British mer
chant navy has a larger proportion of
ships propelled by steam, and it has
been well established that sailing ves-
(geia are m0re liable to loss than steam

A Chapter of Corruption.
The corruption in police circles un
covered by the Lexow committee in
New York almost surpasses belief. It
u wor8ethan anything that occurred
under the reign of Boss Tweed.
The story of Police Captain Creedon
is, in some respects, a pathetic one.
The feaptain was charged with paying
$15,000 as a bribe to one Reppenhag
en, who was the dispenser of Commis
sioner Voorhis's, patronage. Creedon
through this bribe secured his office
When fir3t called to the stand he de
nied the charge, but after consulting
with bis family ana mends he made a
clean breast of the whole business the
' The captain said that he had been
on the police force thirty years. In
1879 he was made a sergeant, but he
found that there was no chance of ris
ing higher. His ability and merit
were acknowledged, but they counted
for nothing. The higher offices went
to the men who could pay for them.
Finally, after growing gray In the
service, he yielded to a suggestion
made by Reppenhagen, who told him
that for $15,000 he would guarantee
him a captaincy from Voorhis, the
well-known leader of the faction call
ed the New York Democracy of the
Voorhis Democracy, in an ally of
Creedon felt that he deserved the
place, and that ii would have been
given to him long before but for the
corrupt methods then, in vogue. So,
he put aside his scruples, raised the
$15,000, paid it to Reppenhagen, and
received the appointment from Voor
his. All this he told the committee,
with expressions of regret for having
yielded to temptation.
The committee knew the captain's
record. He has distinguished himself
as a gallant union soldier, and had
three times passed a civil service ex
amination with a high percentage. As
a policeman as an officer be had been
faithful and efficient, and the charge
of obtaining his office by bribery was
the only accusation ever made against
him." . - ' .
, At the conclusion of Creedon's state
ment Mr. Goff, the chairman of the
committee, informed the captain that
in consideration of his record and his
j services to his country, he would not
be ; disturbed in bis precinct. The
spectators applauded this announce
ment. Then, Reppenhagen took the
stand and confirmed Creedon's story.
About this time it was learned that
the police commissioners had suspend
ed Creedon from duty. Mr. Goff stat
ed that be had sent for the commission
ers to explain their action.' Again
the spectators applauded, rising en
masse. Later, a commissioner made
his appearance and promised that
Creedon's suspension should be revok
ed. More cheering followed this, and
still more when Mr. Goff told the cap
tain that the committee symphatlzed
with him and did not believe that the
publio Interests required his suspension
Altogether this is a black chapter of
corruption, and yet it Is a dramatio
chapter full of exciting incidents. The
sceno in the courtroom was a remarka
ble one. The committee and the spec
tators knew that Creedon had bribed a
police commissioner to give him an of
fice. They knew that such an action
was a crime, and yet they could not
find it in their hearts to condemn a
good man and a brave soldier who bad
gone wrong, almost in self-defense. It
seemed to them that the captain was
not to blame for purchasing his office
when corruption ruled everywhere in
police circles. On the contrary, they
felt that it was fortunate for the city
that the captain had been able to raise
Thus the matter stands at present.
Creedon's offense is condoned, but
Voorhis, the bribe taker, will find him
self in hot water. Ia plain English,
the decision of the Lexow committee
is that the general corruption in New
York police circles sometimes makes
it necessary for a good man to adopt
corrupt methods in order to obtain the
just reward of his merit. Atlanta
