Only a Squaw and Her Babe.
The first faint trace of daylight
is appearing as the tired troopers,
divested of heavy coat, canteen
and cnn, spurs and sling belt,
creep upward through the snow
and loose rocks to the place as
signed each group along the edge
of the bluff that affords shelter
from the wintry blast to the little
Cheyenne village nestling in the
bend of the frozen creek below.
Save the soft crunching of the
snow beneath the pressure of
hands and knees, perfect stillness
prevails, and in a few moments
more the village will be BO com
pletely surrounded that escape will
be impossible, and daylight will
reveal the uselessness of resist
ance. Then a quick return to the
agency must be made, for the ther
mometer registers twenty-seven be
low, aud even the horses, left far
down in the canon, will soon perish
- for want of shelter.
But the eighty-three miles ride
in the stinging cold has benumbed
tbe sense of touch, and a bit of
glary ice brings a trooper and his
oarbine rattling down among the
loose rocks, while the shrill snap
ping bark of the Indian dogs
awakens the sleepy guard, and,
following this alarm, out from the
teepees rush the red-skins.
Believing tha^capture can mean
naught else than death, the Indians
take deadly aim with their Win
chesters, then swiftly retreat to the
only point left open by the troops,
who, seeing their comrades falling,
wait not for the word of command,
but send in a destructive fire just
as the last of the band, a Cheyenne
squaw with babe and child, join
A stray bullet shatters the
mother's right arm and but for the
maiden's quick movement, the
babe would have fallen. Forging
swiftly ahead, the child does not
see the mother hurled unconscious :
to the ground by a bullet that ;
crashes thought her right thigh, ,
and she has almost reached the
rocks when a leaden messenger of
death touches her heart, and, re
laxing all hold on the babe, the (
little maiden staggers and sinks :
forward in a heap on the snow.
Daylight comes quickly, and the
stillness that follows this deadly
outburst is pierced only by the
pitiful cry of the babe stretched on
the icy crust and helplessly!
appealing for the shelter andi
warmth of the mother's breast. And j
then the form of that mother is, I1
seen to move forward, worming its J j
way gradually from side, and n
slowly but surely, inch . by inch, :
lessening the distance between self] ?
and babe. . V
Fourteen minutes-an age- .
have passed, and she has crawled <
but half the distance, and now lies
motionless, with her face toward
the bluff. An inexpressible agony M
. that finds vent only though her '
eyes is more than human sight can t
stand, and dropping his field- ?
glasses a sergenant leaps down- J
ward to carry .the babe to her side, t
and-is shot dead before a dozen (
~ steps are taken. j
The sun's rays bring no warmth 1
and the piteous cry is growing j
fainter and fainter. But the h
mother is again sinking her one] 1
hand through the crust of the |
snow, and dragging her wounded
form forward ; and reaching the
babe with an almost superhuman ?
.effort she rolls over on her back, 1
m the movement divesting herself \
of the blanket that forms her only ]
outer garment,? and, drawing the 1
wee tot to her breast, tucks the j
blanket lovingly around the little ]
body, and folding it in her arm, 1
stills its murmur with a mother's '
touch. Then she places the
fingers of her broken, dangling
arm caressingly on the cold cheek I
of the little maiden. ?
When the Indians, chilled and j
heartbroken, raise a flag of trance, t
solders hurry to the mother's j
side. But the baby's lips, are
tightly frozen to the icy breast,
and mother and babe and little
sister have crossed the Last y
Bange.-N. Y. Evening Post. ?

Compulsory Insurance in Germany.
La Germany the law of compulsory
insurance against old age and infirmity,
passed in June, 1889, completes the pro
gramme of legislation for improving the
condition of the working classes which
was set forth in the imperial rescript of
1881. It affects more than 13,000,000
people, giving them an inalienable legal
claim to support in cases of infirmity
and in old age.
The insurance is compulsory in all in
dustrial occupations upon persons over
sixteen years of age of both sexes.
Clerks and tradesmen's apprentices who
do not earn more than $500 a year also
participate, but assistants and appren
tices in druggists' shops are excluded.
Exemption from compulsory insurance
is granted to persons who work for
food, clothes and lodging only, and who
receive no pay, or who are only in tem
The pension for old age varies from
about twenty-five dollars to fifty dollars
a year, and is granted to every insnred
person who has completed bis seventieth
year, irrespective of his ability to earn a
livelihood, provided he does not already
draw a pension for infirmity. The in
firmity pension varies frcm about twen
ty-seven dollars to over a hundred dol
lars, and is given, irrespective of age, to
persons who are permanently incapaci
tated from earning a living.
In order to establish a claim to a pen
sion under the German law, contribu
tions, regulated by the amount of earn
ings, must be paid for a prescribed
period. The means of paying pensions
are obtained by fixed contributions from
the imperial treasury, added to regular
payments on the part of the employers
and employed.-Youth's Companion.
The Blood Circulate? Rapidly.
Medical workers have made many cu
rious experiments, but none more won
derful than that by which they ascer
tained the exact time required for the
blood to make one entire trip through
the system, which all students of physi
ology know means a complete circula
tion through the lungs, veins, arteries
and general capillary arrangements.
Professors Dalton, Hering, Poisseuille,
Matteucci and Blake have been the chief
investigators in this line, the first named
having become more eminent in this
particular branch of research from
having the experience of the others to
fortify himself with. All the old school
anatomists believed that a considerable
time elapsed, say from three to niue
minutes, from the time when the blood
left the right side of the heart, traversed
the whole system and then again re
turned to the starting point; Dalton has
shown that the time is much shorter
than was formerly generally supposed.
He says: "Dozens of carefully tabu
lated tests of this somewhat extraordi
nary subject shows that the blood of
man makes a complete circulation once
every fifteen to twenty-five seconds, ac
cording to the physical conditions of the
subject experimented upon."-St. Louis
Remarkable are two epitaphs, the first
of which is said to be upon a tombstone
in the city of Sacramento: "Here is laid
Daniel Borrow, who was born in Sorrow,
and Borrowed little from Nature except
bis name and his love to mankind and
hatred to redskins; who was neverthe
less a gentleman and a dead shot; who,
through a long life, never killed his
man except in self defense or by acci
dent, and who, when he at last went
under, beneath the bullets of his cow
ardly enemies in the saloon of Jeff Mor
ris, did so in the sure and certain hope
ol a glorious and everlasting Morrow."
The other, which belongs to a Nevada
burying place, is a noteworthy achieve
ment in thia line. "Sacred to the
Memory of Hank Monk-the Whitest;
Biggest-hearted, and Best-known Stage
iriver of the West; who was kind to All
ind Thought HI of None. He Lived in
i Strange Era, and was % Hero, and the
Wheels of Ms Coach are now Ringing on
Glolden Streets."-Chambers' Journal.
. Philadelphia Pretzels.
Philadelphia pretzels are a thing by '
memselves;.that is, the genuine Phila
lelphia pretzel is, but unscrupulous :
nanufacturers have been making imi- ?
?ations with machinery which have .
served to lessen the high standard raised ,
yj the reputation of the homemade ,
pretzel. The pretzel came over with
;he Dutch, and it is still found in its
>riginal purity in Lancaster and Berks ?
counties, the inhabitants of which have '
been so many generations in this conn-. 1
try that they are unable to speak their* ;
mother tongue. They have not been
lere long enough to learn English, so ]
?hey make their pretzels as they were ,
aught, and talk the language which
bey have manufactured.-New York
Soapsuds Are Valuable.
Few persons know how very useful
soapsuds prove when employed as ma
mre. Applied to the roots of vines,
?ruit trees, roses, etc., they impart a '
rigor and rapidity of growth which is ,
jerfectly surprising. No one who is so *
ucky as to have a garden should waste }
;his valuable form of manure. It is an ?
?xcellent plan to have a large tub, and ]
rat the soapsuds and dirty water into it '
;ill required upon the garden.-Phila
Medicine lake is a wonder that draws
many visitors annually-a body of water
ihat does not contain a living thing, and
it certain hours of the day is full of a
gelatinous, spongelike substance that
rinks and leaves the water clear. At
ihe lake are two mountains, one of pure [
jbsidian, the other of pumice Btone in ;
layers.-Potter Four Corners.
The Power of Observation.
The Bank Clerk-It's a sjbame the way '

Why He Desired a cannon. ;
It is related that an Indian chief once .
approached General Crook and wanted '
io borrow a cannon. "Do you expect 1
me to loan you a cannon with which to ]
?ill my soldiers?' the old veteran in- t
mired. "No," the chief replied; "kill j
joldiers with a club; want cannon to kill
jowboys."-Cor. Topeka Capital. ^
In the Business of Revolution. .
The Englishman imagines that r?volu-. ,
ion and treason are serious affairs and .
nust be conducted with set teeth and *
rrave face. Not so the men of thp 1
uatin races. To them revolutions ara J
ike race meetings, with a certain ?
naomi of danger added. An English- ?
nan feels disgr?ced at the idea of recur- j
?ent revolution. Not so a Frenchman or -,

J. B. DAVIS,
The First Fattie Hair.
In very early days, as now, the hair
was sometimes thin and it had tobe
eked out in various ways to make be
lieve that nature had been spendthrift
to all alike. About the first description
extant of woman's hair speaks of "plaited
locks," known as "Gretchen braids" to
us. To make these braids seem longer,
silk the color of the hair wus braided in.
Then they they took to putting, the
braids in cases of silk, elongating them
with all sorts of stuff till they looked
like umbrellas in covers. The Chinese
pigtail is a modification of this style.
Punished by the Ciar.
The czar of Russia knows how to
brace up his military officers to their
duty. A merchant of CharkoffJSwas
murdered by soldiers, and it waa shown
that had the officers of the regiment
stationed in the town maintained proper
discipline the murder might have been
prevented. As a punishment for this they
have been ordered to pay a yearly pen
sion of 5,000 rubles to the widow of the
murdered man.-Toledo Blade.
