UNITED AT THE LAST.
R& PITIFUL TALE. OF AN EMIGRANT
FAMILY THAT PERISHED.
The Terrible Blizzard of 1S81 Had for

" Which Frozo to Death In Dead Mon's
Cove-Heroic Efforts of a Mother.
"That's Dead Man's cove right before
your eyes," said the old man as he point
ed to a recess of half an acre in extent
in the southern face of the Little Rocky
mountains. "That's Dead Man's cove,
and you. kin see the iron work of the
wagon lyiu about when ye git closer.
When I first looked in here thar was
five human bodies lying dead in that
ragon. Me an my pard we dug a big
grave and buried 'em all together back
agin that cliff, thar whar the rocks is.
- We piled the rocks that way so the
wolves couldn't git at the dead."
"But there is no headboard - no
names,'11 protested as I rode closer to
the spot pointed out.
"Couldn't be no names, 'cause we
couldnV, find any," he replied, "and them
rocks is a gravestun as will last forever.
We'll git off and sit down fur a smoke,
and'I'll gin ye the full particklers. Tve
passed here a hundred times in the last
three -years, and it allus gives me the
heartache. Poor husband-poor wife
"It was this way," he continued after
his pipe was alight. "Me and pard had
our shanty down the valley about a
mile. Plenty of emigrants in the'r Mv
?ered wagons used to come by this trail
and turn south into Wyomin, or keep
west into Idaho. They'd ?come five or
six families at a time, and they'd come
singly. Some of 'em would take sich
chances of Injuns, sickness, landslides,
s starvashun and death as would make
your ha'r stand on end to think of. No
man kin begin to guess how many graves
thar be of men, women and children be
tween the Dakota line and the west
branch of the Missouri river. Tve
counted a hundred in a day's ride.
"Waal, one December mornin me and
pard woke up to feel that thar was a
blizzard makin ready to bust on us. It
had been coolish but pleasant up to that
time. We could tell by the feel of things
what was comin, and began to git ready
fur it. It was jest arter noon when a
woman walked into our shanty. She
was an emigrant. Right here in this
covq she had left her husband and four
children to try and find some help. He
had bin sick fur three weeks and was
little better than a dead man, and she
had bin drivinthe team an takin keer of
things gener'ly. She orter to hev turned
back long before, but some fool of a
* doctor had told the man he'd get well if
they kept on.
"They had got separated from the
party they started with, and had made
the last hundred miles alone. They
war out o' grub, hadn't a match left to
build a fire, and the woman knowed a
chango fur the wuss was blowin up.
* She was a frail, leetle woman, and she
had gone through with nuff to down a
man, but she hadn't lost all her pluck
yit As soon as she told us the story we
got ready to go back with her an bring
in the outfit. We made a s.tart, but we
never got thar."
- "The blizzard prevented, eh?"
"She did. She came swoopin down all
of a sudden, like some great bird droppin
from the sky. A fine snow begun to
fall, the wind started right in to blow a
lavin gale, and I behove the thennom

any with us, but the change was sudden
. an amazin. You couldn't face that gale
to save your life. It jest stopped us and
~ turned us around before we had got fif
teen rods from the house. As to the
cold, it jest paralyzed yon. We had to
go back, and arter takin a big drink o'
whisky all around and puttin on more
clothes we tried it ogin.
"Me and Sam was as tough us b'ars
">~vTarem days and could hev laid down in a
pond of water and let it freeze up with
us, but we couldn't buck agin that buz
zard. When we made the second start
we got about half way up here, the little
woman leadin the way all the time.
Then we had to stop. You couldn't see
three foot from your nose, and all of us
was freezin to death by inches."
"And you went back?'
. "We did. The woman was deter
mined to push on, and we jest had to
pick her up and carry her back. It was
only by the Lord's hand pintin the way
that we ever reached ow-eabin agin.
We had our ears, noses and fingers friz,
and an hoar arter we got back water
friz solid in our cabin within five foot
of a roarin fire. The woman prayed to
God and appealed to us, but we knowed
it was no use. " That was .the blizzard of
1881, and I've heard meivsay it was 42
degs. below zero in this valley that
The woman got nipped wuss than we
did, but her mind was on the family
back here. She was bound to. come back
alone, but we stood her off till about
dark. Then she made a bolt fur it and
- got away."
"And went to her death?"
"Jest as sartin as if she had jumped
off that cliff. The blizzard shet ns in
fur three days. When we got out we
found her within twenty rods of the
cabin. She had friz to death goin that
fur. Cf course we knowed how it would
be up here. The horses had. been on
hitched and turned out. They lay over
by that tree. The folks in the wagon
had crowded together and kivered up
with all the blankets, but all war stun
'? dead and as hard as rocks. They never
saw that fust night come down.
"Me and pard overhauled the wagon,
but we couldn't find anythin givinthe
name of the family, and so, like hun
dreds of others out in this kentry of
mountain and valley, Injun and wolf,
we kivered 'em in to sleep till the Lord
gits ready to call 'em fur judgment.
Seems awful that a hull fam'ly should
be wiped out that way, but they ar'
sleepin thar together, and I guess the
Lord'll know the spot even if thar is no
gravesliun to mark it."-New York Her
A VICTIM OF A CORPORATION.
How a President and General Manager
Was Frozen Oat by His Companions.
"Speaking of corporations," said a
prominent St. Louis banker, "I recall
with painful reminiscence tho first one
of which I had tho honor to be a stock
holder. It happened in 18C5, and I was
just fii'teen years of age. Of course I
had no idea that it was really a corpora
tion in. which I had invested, but as I
look back upon the incident the realiza
tioa*ru3hes upon me that I was a victim
of corporation methods.
"It happened in this way. At a very
early age my tendency for mercantile
pursuits developed. At school I noticed
a very general demand for candy and
cakes and an exceedingly limited supply
in the markbt. Many of the children
possessed coppers and nickels, but it
was nearly a milo from the school house
to the country town, and tho boys were
compelled to forage upon the neighbor
ing sugar cane fields and orchards to sat
isfy the youthful stomach. After a care
ful survey of the market I decided that
tho school was confronted by a condi
tion, not a theory.
"In a few days I had secured the co
operation of half a dozen boys, with a
capital of thirty cents, in which I held
ten cents of the stock, and was conse
quently named arf-Jp? i?d'eht aha man
ager of the candy fitore which we pro
posed to open on the grounds. We found
an enormous dead and fallen tree, whose
hutt end offered little resistance to om
penknives. At noon one day I notified
the stockholders that a meeting would
he held immediately after school, and at
that meeting I, as president and man
ager, cut an opening into the dead tree,
fashioned a shelf therein and attached a
door, while the stockholders looked on
in admiration. I then proposed that early
in the morning each stockholder should
bring with him five cents' worth of
candy wherewith to stock the juvenile
"To my astonishment it was moved
and seconded and carried that the candy
should be purchased and delivered at
once, so that the store might have an
early and perfect opening. Tired as 1
was I repaired to the town, invested my
ten cents in cheap candy, returned to
the school grounds, where already the
twilight was making ghostly figures
among the trees, and deposited my treas
ure in the store. It was quite dark when
I reached home, and being unable to ac
count for my whereabouts the presi
dent and manager went to bed supper
less and with a back stinging from the
effects of a s%itch liberally applied.
Next morning I hastened to the school
grounds in order to be first at the cere
monies. Imagine my surprise when I
found the?e,. seated in a row, all the
stockholders. I congratulated them on
their interest in the enterprise, and then
threw open the door of the candy store.
It was empty!
"For a moment I was speechless. The
stockholders bent their heads and said
nothing. They looked suspiciously con
tented, and when I intimated that Eome
good man among us had gone wrong
they were all prepared to prove that a
daring burglar had, in the midnight
hour, deprived the corporation of its as

brethren in disposing of the stock."-St.
Shaving the Beard in Kassia.
Peter the Great thought to civilize his
savages by making them shave and im
posed a tax of 100 rubles on the wealthy
and middle classes and a copeck on
peasants and laborers. Now it was a
superstition among the poorer people
that no beardless son of Adam could
ever enter he wen, and being obliged to
part with their beards the great ma
jority treasured np their hairs to be
buried with their bodies, In dealing
with his soldiers the great Peter enlisted
the aid of the priests, who cunningly
pointed ont the fact that they were go
ing to fight the bearded Turk and that
their patron, St. Nicholas, would be un
able to distinguish them from their ene
mies unless they sacrificed their beards.
This was all right, and the beards of
the heloved Russians went down before
the razor in deference to St. Nicholas.
But, unluckily for the priests, the next
little war happened to be with the
Swedes, who wore no beards, and thus
it was that the Russian soldiers de
manded to be allowed to abjure the
razor, so that the holy Nicholas might
have no difficulty in arranging for their
protection.-English Illustrated Maga
Recent Applications of Paper.
The year 1891 was certainly one of
those in w'^ch new industrial applica
tions 'of paper were most numerous.
The idea of using paper in place of stone
in the construction of houses is already
old, but paper to take the place of glass
in windows, of clay in flowerpots, of
iron in railway rails, wagon wheels and
horseshoes, of porcelain in laboratory
ware, of wood in barrels, it having al
ready taken the place of that material
in small boats, paper in pulleys, are ap
plications as novel au bold. The manu
facture of window panes of paper was
first tried in the United States.
The panes have the appearance of
milky glass, and the property of inter
cepting the light rays while letting the
heat rays through, which makes them
suitable for greenhouses. It is estimated
that a paper windowpane ninety-four
by sixty-three centimeters in dimensions
in a wooden Bash with iron appliances,
will cost about eighty-five cents, and
last on an average four years.-E.

A Clever Reply from s Cracker.
A big passenger train full of northern
people was temporarily halted in a
dreary sand plain where the only object
in sight was a woebegone looking
cracker sitting on a sand dune busily en
gaged in doing nothing. In the train
was a "smart Aleck," who thought that
he would have some fun. with the
cracker. So he put his head out of the
window and called out, '-'My friend, this
appears to be a pretty fine country you
"I reckon," replied the native without
looking up. "How much of a population
have you in this town?" continued the
smart Aleck as he winked at his friends
in the car. "Waal," replied the cracker,

Chess in Japan.
Not only are there a great number of
pieces and moves in Japanese chess, but
their value changes; for instance, on

the game demands, if that were possi

THE GENTLE SEX HAS BECOME A
POWER IN WASHINGTON.
Hundreds of Women Hol?. Working Po
li tiona in tho Tarions Departments of
the National Capital "Without Losing
Their Social Standing.
Washington is getting to be wom
an's paradise. There is no other place
in the wide, wide world where women
earn as much money, are as independ
ent and are as deferentially treated by
men as they are in Washington. The
influence of women in the affairs of this
mighty nation has been a subject of fre
quent comment. Many interesting and
highly imaginative stories have been told
of the woman lobbyist until the discreet
wives of most of our migratory states
men have taken to traveling around
with them, and never under any circum
stances let them remain alone amid the
temptations of the capital. This is a
palpable injustice to the lawgivers, and
involves an unnecessary hardship upon
the anxious matrons.
Li the place of an in^ginaryand ro
mantic influence upon the lawmaking
of this free for all government there
has thus grown up the real and substan
tial influence exercised by the ever pres
ent and zealous guardian of her hus
band's morals. Meanwhile, from being
the mender of her lord's socks and torn
trousers, the wife of the statesman has
some to realize that she can occupy an
other and higher sphere in life, and feel
ing her power has begun by making all
around her feel'it, who in turn emu
late her independence. So it comes
that from a combination of politics, so
ciety bobbing and female domination
the women of Washington have estab
lished a status for themselves.
Should all the men be suddenly called
away from the capital for a journey
across the Styx there is no legitimate
business that would be left without a
votary and no profession would fall into
decline. Beyond the closing of a few
charitable institutions things would re
main as they are. Lawsuits would be
no fewer or less skillfully conducted;
doctors and druggists would still get in
their daily work; butchers and bakers
and candlestick makers would still be
sufficiently numerous; preachers and
merchants .would equal the demand;
barbers would be more plenty than
beards; real estate agents would still be
forming pools and combinations and
speculating in city and suburban prop
erty. An undertaker is about the only
thing of importance which would not
be found. Thus far the men have that
business to themselves.
When Spinner opened the departments
for the emplyment of women he gave
them an opportunity for advancement.
The thing has worked itself out now and
the female clerk is an established insti
tution, so to speak, in good standing,
with a fair income-and sometimes a
fair face as well-recognized and ap
proved of by good society, and in a
measure fashionable. Her social stand
ing as a class comes perhaps from the
fact that she is more often the friend of
the wives of statesmen than of the
statesmen themselves, those watchful
guardians exercising some discretion in
the matter of favors to their own sex.
Out of this has come the recognition
of woman as a self supporting creature,
without loss of standing, and not all
being able to get into the departments
or to always hold places once secured
they have invaded other occupations and
professions once sacred to the wearers of
trousers. Of course female teachers,
doctors and lawyers areno longer a nov
elty, and a great many have gone into a
small private brokerage business. One
woman has gone regularly into the real
estate, loan, trust and insurances busi
ness, and has turned out to be one of the
best "businessmen" of the thousand and
one who keep their eyes on every foot of
ground in and about Washington. She
has opened up new subdivisions, formed
syndicates and done booming with the
best of them. The girls have almost
driven young men out of the stenogra
phy and typewriting business, and even
around the political headquarters, where
men only used to be employed, women
now outnumber men two to one.
The best of it all is that with all this
the social status of the xomen remains
unchanged; they are still treated with
the greatest deference and courtesy, and
a "strong minded" woman is a rarity.
What would you think to see a shop
girl in a tailor made riding habit gallop

It is not at all uncommon to see parties
of shopgirls-salesladies-well dressed
and well mounted, riding along the most
fashionable drives, looking as stylish
and pretty and enjoying themselves as
much as the richest daughter of fashion
whom they may pass on the road. The
girls in some of the larger stores belong
to riding clubs and have riding masters

The Old PoUce Tax.
The chief authorities of towns in past
ages incurred much responsibility. At
Ripon we have & good example of their
liabilities. Here formerly, after the
blowing of a horn at 9 o'clock at night,
and until sunrise next morning, if a
house were robbed, and the owner and
his servants had taken proper precau
tions for its safety, the wakeman had to
?lake good the loss sustained. Each
hpuseholder paid an annual tax of two
pence if he had one door, and fourpence
if he had two doora to his dwelling, for
maintaining a watch over the city. The
tax,has long since been discontinued,
but the horn is still blown at night.

laughing as a Medicine.
Persons suffering from rheumatism
are naturally anxious to try every pro
posed remedy. John Raymond, of north
am Iowa, had tried without relief nearly
avery alleged cure suggested hy friends.
Then he read this in a medical journal:
"There is more benefit in a good laugh
than in the hotwater remedies, the faith
cures, the electrio, and all other new
treatments in the world, and it costs
nothing. If you know of nothing else to
laugh at, laugh at your noighbor."
Thia was a new idea to poor Mr. Rayr
mond. But what should he laugh at?
In the house was nothing amusing.
However, the medical journal said,
"Laugh at your neighbor."
He went out on the front porch, and
sitting in a chair; watched the people on
the streets. Fora time he saw nothing
funny. Then a big German walked by,
muttering aloud to himself.
"Ha, ha, ha!" went Mr. Raymond.
The big German stopped and looked.
"Ha, ha, ha!"
"Vot vor yoiihaw, haw, haw, mit me?'
"Ha, ha, hal"
Over the fence leaped the big German,
his fists uplifted.
"Oh!" cried Raymond," "I-I-meant
QO harm. I was laughing for my
"TJnd den you leetle sick Yankees
laugh mit big Dutchmen! Dot ish all
right. Dot ish von goot shoke on me.
Fa, ya, ya!"
But Mr. Raymond, who really had not
meant to be rudo in the least, gave np
the laugh cure, believing that the
"shoke" was on himself rather than on
the good German.-Youth's Companion.
Music as Medicine
The one discovery above all others that
has made Ambroise Pare famous for all
time was the plan, which he waa the first
to suggest, of tying tho arteries after the
surgical removal of a limb. In one part
if his writings ho gives a curious ac
count of a case of successful amputa
don, in which ho appears to have antici
pated one of the latest of modern fads
md to have used music as medicine,
rho patient had been wounded in battle,
rhe famous surgeon took him in hand,
mccessfully amputated the limb, using
lip new plan of tying the arteries, and
:vhen the sufferer began to mend pre
icribed what the quain!; English of the
translation describes as "a consort of
violins and a jester to make him merry.''
[n a month the patient was able to hold
Himself up in a chair and was carried
lown to the gate of his castle to see the
people pass by.
A successful issue to such an operation
nust have been of .rare occurrence, for

?hey could see him, came the first day,
nale and female, to sing and dance pen

rery glad to see him, which was not done
ivithout good laughing and drinking."

?ludes Pare, "I returned to Paris with
