DETAIlS OF T1LE DiSATEIt.
IEAUMONT, Texas, October 14-1.30 A.
M.-Our town was in a state of intense cx
citement to-night at news just rcceivel
from S bine Pass. We have no telegraphc
communication with Sabine Pass, as the
wires are all down, but an engine arrived
here to-night over the East 'T'exas railroad
that left there about 0 o'clock. ''vo citi
zens, who rowed in a small boat. across the
expanse of angry waters, a distance of sev
eral miles, from the town of Sabine to the
railroad track, came in on the engine and
gave a heart-rendering account of the affair.
They say the waters began to h-vade the
town from the Gulf and the lake together
about 2 o'clock Tuesday afternoon, and
rose with unpreecdentel rapidity.
The citizens of the doomed place did not
realize the imminent danger until it was
too late to escape. When safety by flight
Was recognized as being out of the question,
the people who were situated so they could
(10 so betook themselves to houses and
other resorts which they judged to be safe.
The water kept rising, and between 3 and
4 o'clock the smaller nouses began to yibld
to the reslstless force of the wavcs. which
un'-t only moved them from their foula
tions, but turned them over on their sides
and tops. A little later the larger houses
began to give way, and detlatlh y drowning
seemed in store for every person in the
place. With the yielding of the smaller
houses, several persons who had remained
in them were drowned, and when the resi
dences and business places began to crum
ble the fatality began to double.
The following list of the drowned was
obtained from the gentlemen who came in
on the engine: Miss Mahala Chalnbers,
Jim Vondy and family of six; the wife of
Otto Brown and two children; 1lamer
King, wife and child; Mrs. Junker and son;
Mrs. Pomeroy and family of live; 31rs.

A moment of silence maarked the )
aloso of Bob's recital. Then some one
turned to Alf, who had been an intent
listener, his eyes fixed on the floor, the
smoke from his cigar curling over his
line head, his whole attitude sugges
tive of calm repose. "What sort of a
boy was Bob?" was inquired of the
Itepublican candidate. Alf removed
the fragrant weed from his lips, and
turning his chair toward the fire and
peering into the blaze, while a genuine
smile stole over his countenance, said:
"Well, he was a qucer boy. To begin
with"-"Bo caretl, Alf," smilingly
interject(d his younger brother. "All
right," and then, continuing, "yes, he
was queer. lie was inl all manner of
ti ischief at all times, but he had a
knack of getting out of the worst
scrapes without a scratch, while Nat
and Jim and I caught the devil. lie
was a natural-born humorist, and

old folks nine times out of ten. lie
would lead us into inischiet' and then

leave us to catch the collsetleieces. A
lucky stnr has been over that boy,"
pointing to Bob, "from the day lie
was born. Let mne tell you how he
got ahead of us on one occasioni, but
it will serve as an instance of how he
manuged things. Brother Nat, Jim

An lndiau Way of FIxing Boundaries of Qraets

(From the Omaha World.)
"That's a 10 o'clock line," said al old
gentleman putting his finger on a deli
cate line on one of the Grand Paciflo
"What in creation is a 10 o'clock line?"
ohorused two young companions, as they
traoed the line in guestion from near the
mouth of the Miami River northwest
"It was the boundary of an Indian
grant.-a kind of natural way of survey
Lng. I was down with a party once to
ratify a treaty by which a tribe agreed
to cede some territory to the whites. It
was a small matter, but it was a big oc
sasion with the savages. Everthing was
ready. The surveyor had his compass
and telescope and had mounted them on
a tripod. The head man of the tribe
came up, looked steadily at the instru
ment for a while, grunted and returned
to the circle around the council fire.
Not a word was spoken. Soon another
Indian got up, walked sedately to the in
strument, gravely examined, then grunt
ed and in silence returned to his place
by the fire. This example was followed
by half a dozen other bucks. Then they
held a short consultation, and the head
man arose and came over to the white
" 'That what Indian know,' he said,
drawing a small circle on the ground
with a stick; 'that what white man know,'
he continued, drawing a larger circle
around the first; 'this what nobody
know,' he concluded, pointing to all
without the last circle. 'White men
know that,' pointing to the instruments;
'Indian no know it. Indian knew the
sun. Him never cheat. Him always
same. Him throw shadow. Indian give
white man land one side shadow and
ke3p other side.' After a big pow-wow
it was decided that a line drawn in the
direction of the sun would cast a shadow
from an agreed point at 10 o'clock which
should be the boundary of the concession,
the white man taking the land on the
one side and the Indian keeping that on
the other. The other boundaries of the
concession were those of the original
territory of the tribe, supplemented by
vater courses and other natural objects.
These lines were frequently used and
became known as '10 o'clock lines.'

The next night the serenaders returned
again, with increased numbers and more

a dollar more. The parties disagreed,
and for two hours night was made hide

on the following night, and the racket
was worse than ever. Gear stuck to his
