In ths light of the moon, by tho Bide of the
trater,
My Beat on the sand and her aett on my
leneee,
"We watch the brilliant billows, do I and my
daughter,
My sweet little daughter Louise.
We wonder what city the pathway of glory,
That broadens aw&y to the limitless woet,
Leads up to she minds her of some pretty
story,
And b&tb: "The pathway that mortals lore
-beat."
Then Isay: "It must lead to the far awa
city,
The beautiful City of Best.-'
In the light of 4he moon, by the Bide of the
water,
Stand two in the shadow of whispering trees,
And one loves my daughter, my beautiul
daughter,
My womanly daughter LouiBe.
She steps to the boat with a touch of his fing
ers, And out on the diatnondod pathway they
move ;
The jhallop is lost in tho distance, it lingers,
It waits, but I know that its coming will
prove
That it went to tho wallB of the wonderful city,
The magical City of Love,
In the light of the moon, by the side of the
- -water,
I wait for her coming from over tho aets ;
I wait but to welcome tho dust of my daughter,
To weep for my daughter Louise.
The path, as of old, reaching out in its Bplen
dor, Gleams bright, like a way that an angel has
trod;
1 kie tho cold burden its billows surrender,
Sweet clay to lie under the pitiful sod :
But flic reBts, at the end of the path, in the
city,
Whose "builder and maker is God."
THE ROMANCE OF CRACKER'S
NEGK.
i t COLONEL GEORGE TV, 8YM0ND3.
That turbulent and tortuous stream
the Little Sandy river coils itself & m
pletely around a rocky plateau of about
10,000 acres area, in tne Western corner
of Elliott county, Kentucky, tho waters
of the river being divided by a narrow
etrip of crumbled cliff. From time im
memorial this peninsula has borne the
enphoEious name of "Cracker's Neok."
It is a wild and gloomy spot, it you
follow the boundaries of the plateau
and view it from the opposite bank of
the river. Walled in on all side3 by
frowning c!iffs, rising nearly perpen
dicular to the height of 300 feet, their
upper edge fringed b,y a heavy growth
of stunted firs and laurel bushes, it cer
tainly has a foib:dding look. If jou
have the curiosity to explore the plateau
and climb the summit of the crumbling
cliff at the point of jointure with the
mainland, the aspect changes. Ten
years ngo there was a thick growth of
heavy timbor on the ,,neckJ,, but it has
all been cleared away, ana a vista of
fertile fields and neatly fenced planta
tions sweep away on all sides to the
cliff edges, whicn are still bordered bv
the lanrel and fir growth. Evidences
of civilization in the way of comfortable
houses and stables and sheep flocks
cropping the succulent herbage are seen
on every hand. The country surround
ing this plateau is rocky and sterile and
the fertile neck rises up like an oasis in
the mountain desert. It instinctively
strikes the imaginative beholder as a
fine spot for romance, and the "Romance
of Cracker's Neck" I now propose to
tell.
Immediately after the closo of the
late war a man named Peter J. Living
stone, who had commanded a regimen
of guerrillas on the Confederate side,
purchased the neck for a nominal sum,
cleared away the timber, laid off fields,
built roads and erected houses and
openeda store jaht on the verge of the
crumbling cliff, down which you clamb
ered to reach the mainland. He cut
down this cliff and graded a read to the
farther edge of the plateau, with lateral
feeders running off on either side. He
brought his family here, installed them
in a luxurious home, and began a flour
ishing business, the basis of which was
timber, great tracts oL whioh were
owned by him on the mainland. The
geographical situation of the "neck"
was an admirable one for business
purposes, it being a eort t of half-way
station between the undeveloped riohes
of wild Kentucky and capital which
stretched out eager hands toward the
new-old country from the other side of
the Ohio river. He speedily drew about
him an enormous trade and acted as a
factor for the whole of the back coun
try. He was an affable, pleasant-mannered
ma a and made friends.
At this time Mountain Kentucky was
in a str.te of anarchy, Law and order
were but little regarded, and the woods
were filled with armed men engaged in
those terrible family feuds which have
made the dark and bloody ground
famous. It was the favorite rendez
vous, too, for a much worse class of
criminals. Thieves and counterfeiters
made their headquarters among the
wild gorges and deep forests from
whioh they emerged, at frequent In
" fcevrsisr to prey on the fatness of the
rich blue-grass country but a few miles
distant. Robberies were of frequent
occurrence, and stolen horses and cattle
were .stampeded out of the low country
by the hundred head. They would be
secreted here until the hue and cry was
over, and then conveyed across the
Ohio river and sold. It was known to
the authorities that the desperadoes
were well organized, and alPefforts to
break up the gang were fruitless.
During all this time Colonel Peter J.
Livingstone flourished and waxed rich,
and no one suspeotei that he bad a
hand in the lawless acts which ware
fact driving honest people out of the
mountains, and deterring others from
coming in to take their places.
Peter J. Livingstone's business pros
pered bo well that it was not long
before he had competition. Two Vir
ginians, father and son, named Malone,
set up a store on the mainland, directly
on the road to Livingstone's store, and
much of the trade which hitherto of
necessity had gone to him was directed
to the new establishment. The falling
off in his business enraged Colonel
Livingstone beyond measure, and ho
bad an open quarrel with the Malones.
After this quarrel the two firms tried to
injure each other in the way of trade as
much as possible. Livingstone made
threats that he would break up the
Malones, and drive them from the
county. In the spring of 1877 Malone's
store was broken into and robbed of
several hundred dollars' wcrtlrcf
goods, and Colcnei Livingstone gloried
in the discomfiture of his rivals over
their loss. A few months afterwards a
fire broke out inMalone's store, but
was happly extinguished before much
damage was done. After thii second
misfortune one of Mai one's clerks, a
middle-aged man named Jasper Breed
ing, slept in the store to guard his em
ployers property.
Breeding was at his post one night in
tho fall of 1877. The hour was late
and he was asleep. A noise in the
store-room aroused hm, and he jumped
out of bed to find the store in flames.
Through the curling smoke ho saw two
men hastily leaving the building by the
front door, and heard them close and
lock the door behind them. He
realized that escape in that direction
was cut off. Malone & Co. had consid
erable ready money on hand, and this
money was in a large safe which stood
in the office. Breeding had the key of
the safe, and opened it to pave the
money. The safe was empty. He
picked up a package of .bilk on the
floor near tho pafe, whioh had been
dropped by tho thieves in their flight.
There was a rear door to the building,
wuiou ws secured irom ino insiae Dy
means of a box. The fPioke was
stifling, and Breeding opened this door
to escape, only to find the doorway
blocked by bales of hay, which bad
been rolled up against the end of the
otuicung. na tried to lorce a
way
through the barricade, but failed. The
fire was now at his heels, and the
smoke so dense that ho could hardly
breathe. Happily, he called to mind
at this critical moment a small window
on the side of the building. Groping
his way to this last loophole of escape,
he forced open the shutters, raised the
f-ash and leaped oat not a moment too
soon. When he turned to survey the
burning bailding the long roof trem
bled and-fell in with a crash, and the
flames leaped high into the air.
Nothing was Baved but the package of
money.
The burning, which' was evidently
done to hi J e robbery and at tlw samo
timt commit murder, created consider
able excitement among the better class
of citizens in Elliott connty, and tho
next day a meeting was called to take
measures to hunt down the criminals.
With a stern sense of retribution this
meeting was held on tho charred frag
ments of MaloEe k Co.'s store. Money
was raised on the spot and a detective
was sent for to ''work up" the case. Tho
next night a meeting of citizens was
held at Martinsburg, the seat of Elliott
county. This meeting was secret, and
its deliberations wero not made public.
The detective went to work on the case
andcauBed the arrest of three men,
charging them with complicity in the
burning. One of the parties arrested
by name John Kimball was a rospec
tableand comfortably well-to-do farmer,
who had hitherto borne a good reputa
tion. His companions, Henry Ormsby
and Bill McMillan, were both men of
little character. Ormsby was a Ten
nessean, and had served one term in the
state penitentiary at Nashville. McMil
lan ne'er-do-well, who subsisted by
hunting, fishing and logging, with an
occasional job at wood-chopping, or
farming. All Ihreo were placed in the
jail at Martinsbnrg. All three were
friends and partisans of Cjlonel Living
b tons tone, and the latter engaged a
lawyer to defend them and made ar
rangements to bill them out of jail.
He boasted that money would do any
thing, and with truth, too; for the judi
ciary was corrupt, and tho officers of
the law servile and easily intimidated.
Another secret meeting of citizens was
held and dark mutterines wero hoard
on every hand.
The detectivo whose identity, by
the way, was never discovered, and is
unknown to this day, savo by the few
who employed him followed up the
clew which he had unearthed. He
know-that he had to deal with desperate
men, who would stoop to any crime to
shield themselves from punishment,
and he went among the suspected
parties thoroughly disguised. Profess
ing to be a farmer "pal" of Ormsby's,
anxious to extricate his old partner
from his present difficulty, ho gradu
ally wormed his way into the confidence
of the men whom he suspected of being
concerned in the burning, and one night
was admitted into their counsels. What
was his surprise and amazement to find
that the men in jail were members of a
regularly organized and thoroughly
disciplined gang of counterfeiters,
housebreakers and cattle and horse
thieves, whose chief and moving spirit
was Colonel Peter J. Livingstone. This
gang numbered about three hundied
members, and many of them were men
whose characters had never been attaint
ed even by suspicion.
Jubilant over tho success he had
achieved, and confident that ho had
evidence enough to cause tho convic
tion of the whole gang, the detective
hastened the next day to Martinsbnrg
to secure warrants and a posse of arrest.
When he reached the town ho found
that one of the men in jail (Ormsby)
had confessed to everything, which he
the (detective) had learned tho night
before, and that the other two prisoners
McMillan and Kendall had been taken
from the jail and hanged by a mob of
about five hundred masked men,
whioh had issued a proclamation
justifying the act, and made known for
the first time the existence of the
"Regulators."
The story of this execution, "by com
mand of Judge Lynch," is a brief one.
The two secret meetings whioh had been
held by the citizens of Elliott county,
were for the purpose of organizing a
"society of public protection and jus
tice." One of tho most prominet citizens
of the county was at its head. Every man
of standing, every man who loved order
and respected the law in the county en
rolled himself in the new order." Its
spfes were more ubiquitous than the
hired detective, and brought to the
chief of the order startling intelligence.
Livingstone's gang was becoming fright
ened, and had resolved on heroic
measures for the succor of their brethren
in durance vile. They had resolved to
anticipate the law's slow delay, and
resoue their friends by force. At the
same time it was intended to burn Mar
tinsburg and shoot down all opposition.
The generalissimo of the "Regulators"
knew that Peter J. Livingstone was at j
the head of the order. He had wrung a
confirmation of this Knowledge from
Ormsby and from Kendall and Mc
Millan. He was provided with a list of
the members cf the gang. The lodge,
in solemn conclave, voted to mete out
impartial justice to all evil doers.
Sentence of death was pronounced on
Kendall, McMillan, Livingstone, Lewis
Binion, John Binion and John Boggs.
Other members of the gang receivedsen
tences varjing from five to one hundred
lashes on the bare back and notice to
quit the State. The lodge rode into
Martinsburg at midnight, armed and
disguised; they forced the jailer to de
j jvgrjin tha feeys of the jail, and brought
forth Kendall SPd McMillan to suffer
the extreme pemUty of lynch law. The
frightened wretches confessed everv-
t.Ttitnar imnlinsfAil Tiirinrretnno in rrrr
nTn;nrp u7.7lr i,
Joimons and Bosgs. and were hung up .
to a walnut tree in the Court Houee j
yard. A proclamation was posted in
several prominent places threatening
evil doers and their friends and sympa
thizers with the vengeance of the Regu
lators. After hanging the two prisoners the
band quietly dispersed. The execution
created considerable excitement, but
no effort was mado to bring the lynchers
to justice. The night following they
captured Louis Binion and hung him
to a ladder set up against his own
house. Others of the gang were visited
and whipped and ordered to leave tho
state. For a month the Regulators
were every night whipping and hang
ing, John Binion took to the " bush,"
and one night endeavored to get out of
the county. He and Boggs were to
leave together. The latter was a hunter
and fisherman, and the place of rendez
vous of the two proscribed "men was a
log cabin which Boggs sometimes
occupied on his hunting excursions.
The Regulators learned of the move
ments of the two men and sought to
check their flight. They surrounded
the cabin and demanded an uncondi
tional surrender. Binion and Boggs
refuged to give themselves up. The
; regulators fired a volley into the cabin,
brofce down the door, shot Boggs dead
and wounded Binion. Binion begged
for mercy, but they laughed his prayer
to scorn. A rope was placed about his
neck, and howling and praying he was
dragged to the nearest tree. They
strung him up, and as he writhed under
the cruel, choking rope, fired a volley
into the swinging body and ended the
wretch's misery.
Tho arch criminal Livingstone, how
over, escaped them. It appears that
ho learned of the hanging of the two
men in Martinsburg and their betrayal
of him that same night, and making
hasty preparations he fled across the
Big Sandy into West Virginia. He
remained in hiding for several weeks,
wound up his business, colleoted to
gethr all the ready money he coul 1
realize and went to TexaB, in one of the
frontier towns of which state he is now
lecated. The rest of the gang fled the
state. A great deal of stolon property
was recovered by the detective and re
turned to the owners. The property on
" Cracker's Neck " was divided up and
sold by Livingstone's son, after which
the young man went to Texas to join
his sire.
The now order inoreased its membar
ship and established subordinate lodges
in o ther counties. It restored order and
made law respected. It drove out the
desperadoes, thieves and outlaws, and
mado it possible for an honest man to
live in Elliott county. As an evidence
ofwhat terror of evil-doing was in
spired by the Regulators it is said that
a man could lay down a thousand dollars
in tho middle of the road anywhere in
tho county and leave it there for weeks
without fear of its being picked up,
because, as a mountaineer quaintly ex
pressed tt to the writer :
" Thar's no tellin, mister, how many
rifles mought be coverin' thet some
thousan' dollahs, nor how quick a man
mought see kingdom kum. Who'd be
dratted fool enufi to pick hit up? "

Soda Water.
"The soda water business is flourish
ing. Millions of dollars have oeen
made out of it, and millions more will
be made. It's the popular drink."
The speaker was a prominent manu
facturer of soda water founltejs, and
was showing a reporter tkrpjiglLhis
establishment. "See that 'fquiicain.
Ain't it a beauty? Worth $l,d00.
That's going to Euiope. What a change
has come over this business in the past
fifteen years. Then a sodaater foun
tain consisted simply of one short pipe
running up through the counter. The
sweetening fluids were ranged in bottles
around this ; but now everything is
different, and two dozen syrups can be
drawn from one fountain. The most!
beautiful fountain I ever saw cost

varieties of marble. There were faucets
for thirty-two different kinds of syrups,
and for eight kinds of mineral water.
The so-called soda ran through about
300 feet of condensing and cooling pipes
before it reached the glass. Yes, Ameri
cans were the first to manufacture fine
Boda water fountains, and we now ship
them to all points in Europe and even
to Australia."
"What do fountains cost?"
"All the way from 100 to 2,000."
A prominent down-town druggiBt was
asked about the purity of so-called soda
water and of the syrups used with
them.
'It is two-thirds bogus," he replied.
"Soda water as usually prepared con
tains no soda in any form. Pure water
with carbonic acid gas is all that it is.
Bicarbonate of soda is sometimes used.
Nearly every druggist makes his own
soda water, and I know of one case in
which the proprietor of a large drug
store has sunk an artesian well for the
purpose of having plenty of water."
"What about syrups ?''
"In most cases they are unfit for
drink, positively injurious, and verv
often made from an inferior quality of
drugs. The so-called pure fruit syrups,
in nine cases out of ten, do not contain
a smell of the fruit they are supposed
to be made of, but they are concocted
wuith sch skill as to deceive the sensi
tive taste."
"How many soda water stands are
there in New York ?''
"Thouf ands ; one place alone that I

There Is TreHsIe Ik Stare
For thoao win naglecfc to rectify irregularities
of the stomach, liver and bowels, which they
foolishly imagine will "come right of them
selves." Of this silly error auoh persons are
usually disabused by the development of
some serious chronic malady, traceable to
what they were pleased to consider a trifling
disorder of the above named associate organs.
Such a culmination is easily avoided. A
course of Hosteler's Stomach Bitters invari
ably has tho effect of renewing the secretive
action of a torpid liver, restoring healthy di
gestion and assimilation, and rendering the
habit of body perfectly regular. The activity of
these all important funciious being restored,
and tho entiro system toned and regulated by
this incomparable cojrective and mvigorant,
no danger to the general health ia to be appre
hended from causes which, if not eradica ed in
time, will assuredly undermine it.
