"Scaling afco^" stubborn people
?Ivrays reminds mo pi poor Seth
Cox of Indian Gulch/' said an old
pioneer from M^n^ county.
* "P'r'aps, though/' he added,
glancing aroimd aqairkglv, >^
fellows never ?heard of hun."
\ withered old miner from Neva
da* county hinted that "mebbe he
tras related to) the Bill Coxwim was
??aed at Be I Dog in 1861/'\ ,
This the AiaripOEo m)m deputed
on thc grounfl that Seth during his
lifetime was too 'square a man to
nave even boejn a thirty-eighth cous
in to the chajj who had como to such
m iijiiomini?u? end cit &?d Dog.
?\Vhv, ano,'? ho went onV turning
front the Nevada man to the four
other bystanders;. "?efch WQB as
gquarc a man aa I over met in Cali
fornia. He would fight if necessary
and would drink as much aa the
next man, and what more was want
ed in those dav?? ?
"But that ain't what I was going
to tell you about. You eoe, Seth had
one fault, and that .waa stubborn
ness of the cussedest kind.^ AU one
nad to do was to take a stand on
anything, and Seth would as nat-i
nrallv take a hitch on the contrary
?de and outhold your hand, some
how, even jf yotl had all trumps.
"Seth was marshal of Indian
Gulch, up our way, as far back as
1862, and, being so, stubborn, he
carried things pretty much his own
vay. If th?y didn't go, his way,
they were not likely to go any way.
"Now, sho, just to give ?you an
idea of how stubborn Seth was lil
tell you of s. little., incident. He
noa a discussion. *?Hh a miner about
turkey buzzards, and just because
the miner said they; were stinking
things Seth maintain sd that they
were second to nothing in the poul
try line. Well, tho miner thought
he'd take a fall out of Seth and the
nest day brought him a turkey buz
zard and dared him to eat it--yes,
wagered ],?m $20 on it. Did ho win ?
Why, sho I
. "Seth ate the buzzard, and as he
was picking the bones inquired if
there was anybody eke around who
was anxious to pay him for eating
one of the most delicious morsels in
the world. That was Seih ail over.
He'd never give in on anything he
undertook, sho t" And the Maripo
sa man refilled his glass.
"One day,", he resumed briskly
jost as the Nevada man was about
to say something, "a new miner,
who said he hailed from Chinese
Camp, ambled into th j) Gulch and
made himself quito popular before
night, treating everybody time and
again at Bea Byan's saloon. Aa
Marshal Se^h thought it his duty to
make the acquaintance of the
strange pilgrim who was so well
heeled apparently with dust, it was
not long before Seth and the new
comer, who said his name was Dan
Fletcher, were bucking against each
ether at poker.
"Now, sho, that was all right, birt
Dan, while they were playing, began
io tell how he had made tb? pilgrim
age all the woy from Pool ?boat to
Angels and cleaned out every poker
sharp on tho road. Seth in his bull
headed way said he reckoned if he
had met Dan on that journey Dian
would have had to take to tho wil
derness for want of clothes, he
would have been so cleaned out.
"Then there woe a hurricane of
ia argument, and finally Seth boast
ed that he'd put everything ho had
np against all Dan had and play
poker until ono or t'other was bust
ed. Dan jumped at the offer? and
arrangements were made. .
"The game' was to be played in a
room at John' Hansen's hotel; and
each man's wealth , wea represented
ny twenty-five twenty dollar pieces,
which they used as chips.Seth, as
marshal, proclaimed a^ holiday in
town until ho had cleaned Dan cut,
gen he promised a big Lurrah. The
whole town ,was gathered around
nansen's place, and afc intervals of
?a hour sighs were hung out as to
the game. One time it weald he
geth is a hun?^ed ?Kead^nd at au
pther 'Even game, with Dan's'ante
9' There was lots of betting on
ae result. Bed Byan wagered his
Moon against a claim that Seth
jould win. And, sho, all the time
?th and Dan sat there flipping
heir cards like machines and not
loticing anything outside of the
"About 10 o'clock that night Dan
Gis out $300, and when some of tho
. ys took up sapper for tho players
-for they hadn't eaten anything,
ou knowr-he growled out to take
s away, as no man could play cards
Jd eat ?jut?rink too. Seth wac so
[unborn that he wouldn't etoo ci
ter, for\ feagan ;wouid think he
^ weakening.- Tho boys set down
ie supper and left 'cm. Ia the
jorning breakfast v*i3 put down
longsido the untouched ? supper.
U they wanted w?,?* half a dozen
ev decks of cards. They had worn
QJ four packs. Sho, no mi?t?ra^
?ell, now*, there's no uso <;
f out th? agony on a th
^ed oufc ?a serious as that game.
J anybody'at Indian Gulch can
j1* you to this ^ay; Seth and Dan
*yect there for live days
rights, a-fi ccsawhig ona ii
;*rog, but eich as stubborn os tho
her and deterrained not to give in.
Qey hadn't touched the meals we,
?k up to 'cm, and they hadn't slept
"ter. You may say it's impossible,
lt just go tc Indian Gulch, and
? can provo it. The two men
*e Uko ekeletoniMi?d Seth was sa
.weak that lie could? ?ot deal tEe
cards and swea? at the same time.
"On the evening of tho fifth ?av
some of us boys met at Byan's and
decided in the interest of htUBanity
to interfere and rn&ke Seth and Dan
quit until they got into condition.
But; sho, when we went np in the
morning they wero both stretched
,out on the floor dead-yes, sir?e,
dead.. JS?cp; had live (jarda in his
aasid; and Seih was clutching his
last $20 as if ho had "Just been call
ing Dan when ho rolled over.
'And he'd 'a* won, too !' howled
Byan as he looked at the hands.
TheniByan wanted the match de
clared ip favor of Seth, but tho boys
wouldn't have it. Bets were de
clared off and the game called a
draw. Seth and Dan had used up
sixtyrseven packs of .cards, and their
golden chips were worn as smooth
"Wo buried 'em. ?ide by side that
day, hut now comes tho strongest
part of tho whole thing, and to
show, you what stubborn critters
they werer-that night there was a
light in the room where they had
been playing, and as sure as? I'm
[ here there sat Dan and 6eth as nat
ural as life, a-flipping their cards
! ??d tossing their chips "by the light
ol the'ghostly candle. Maybe tney
didn't have that, whole hotel to
I themselves! Sho, I guess they did!
Nobody fd go nigh it. Hansen went
around crying almost and saying
he didn't seo why two stubborn ga
loots couldn't stay where they were
planted instead of corning to haunt
an honest manchonse and ruin his
"business. But nothing seemed to
interfere with the game. Every
night for a week Seth and Dan sat
up playing, while the whole Gulch
gazed at the light in the window and
shivered and swapped ghost stories.
At last Byan one night said he had
a mind to see how the game s?ood,
and he climbed up to naen in the
window. Just as ne din so we saw
a flash of light shoot across the
room, and three minutes afterward
Hansen's place was in a.blaze.?.
"Byan said tnat as he looked in
the window Seth had caught Dan
cheating and had thrown the candle
at him. The place was burned to
the ground, and Indian Gulch felt
relieved to think that the ghosts
were gone." ,
"I should say so," gasped one of
"But sho as I'm here, gentlemen,
there was a bluish Maze seen around
the ashes of the burned building
the very next night, and there, Seth
and Dan, looking as if they were I
made of chalk, were observed sitting
on a pile of rocks that had been
Hansen's 'chimney flipping 'their
cards as lively as ever.
"This was too much, and Indian
Gulch was scared in good earnest.
But some of us got together and de
cided that Seth and Dan must go.
We dug 'em up and carted 'em five
miles up a canyon and there buried
'em. we never saw them again in
Indian Gulch, but soon afterward
some prospectors came down from
the hills and said that they-had
seen two ghosts sitting under a tree
and playing. But, sho, gentlemen,
Where are y ou going ?"
T?o shriyclcd old miner from 3S*e
vada turned .as he followed the nth
_rs in their hasty exit.
"I did think," he said, ?you'?
have the decency to let them two
cusses, rest in their graves, but if
you're going to yank 'em all over
the country, why, go it alone." And
the Mariposa man was left alone..
<eWell/ sho, I'm duraed," mutter
ed the narrator of Seth Cox's ad
ventures. "Beckon I'll go back* to

folks are sociable and mannerly."-?'

THE PUNGENT CLOVE,
ita PM In .Cookery and the Medicinal
Properties of Its Oil.
The clove ia a well and widdy
fcnown spice of which millions of.
pounds are marketed and consumed
?very year. In cookery it is employ
ed either by itself br combined with
other spices u> innumerable sweet
preparations, such os cakes, pies,
preserves, puddings, sauces, cordials
As it is very pungent/ care must
fte taken not to use it too freely. It
is a valuable addition to the flavor
and keeping qualities of both sweet
and sour pickles. ' It is excellent
also for the flavoring of certain meat
dishes, as croquettes, boned and
pressed fowl, etc. The baked or
boiled ham, after the rind has been
taken off, acquires a much enjoyed
flavor from the cloves with which it
is the custom of some cooks to dot
The medicinal properties of cloves
are similar to those of allspice and
cinnamon, and the oil, emulsified or
diluted in some way, is said to be:
an excellent and quickly acting rem
edy for nausea and stomach cramps,
and it is generally prescribed ive j
toothache. Where\?;r it can ue con*
veniently employed this oil is an ex
cellent antieeptic and preventive of
molds and mildews and is also, to
some extent, a repellent of insects.
The clove, from the French clou,
a nail, is the flower bud of a tall
and beautiful evergreen of the myr
tle family distinguished botanically
as Oaryophyllus aromatious. The
elongate part is the tube of the ca
lyx, while the four parted head is
externally the four sepals inclosing
the rounded corolla, the dividions of
which are united at their tips and
cover the clustered stamens, also ar
ranged in groups of four. ' By soak
ing,clo ves for a time in warm water
all these parts may be unfolded for
examination. The> blossoms, when
allowed to develop, aro deep crim
son, arranged in clusters and of a
most entrancing fragrance, and, re
lieved by the profuse dark green,
pointed, oval leaves, are very snowy.
The succeeding fruit resembles a
email olive in form and when ripe is
bright red or purple.
x he clove tree is a native of the
Moluccas, but is grown throughout
the East Indian archipelago, in
some parts of. Africa and of the
Wost Indies, where it is highly es
teemed as an ornamental evergreen,
as well as for its choice product.
In preparation for market the
buds are carefully picked while still
green and slowly dried in the smoke
Of wood fires until ^hey assume she
brown color of the familiar spice.
The ripe fruit is also, to some ex
tent, dried and prepared for use and
is sold as "mother of cloves/' ss are
also the fruit stalks, but neither of
these compares in pungency and
aroma to the flower buds.--St Louis

To an Alabama, negro named MoKel
vin is given the credit for inducing
members of his race to emigrate to
Mexico. MoKelvin was .at one time
employed on a large Alabama planta
tion, but later went to Mexico, where
he claims to have found better wages.
He returned to Alabama and distrib
uted large oiroulars among the negroes
telling of the advantages of'the Mexi
can country and of the opportunities
it offered young negroes who wanted
?o?kin the country. His oiroulars
also contained SB an inducement the
asauranoe that the negroes would not
be eubjeot to the order of "white
trash.." This last feature apparently
proved a drawing card, for MoKelvin
had no trcublo in persuading 100 ne
groes to return to Mexioo with him,
where be found work for them st (1.50
a day. Most of thia first importation
have been employed on the La Junta
plantation of George 0. Sanborn.
So far the negroes-, it is said, sro
quite satisfied and are in turn proving
satisfactory to their employers. Mo
Kelvin has made the claim that he
will be able to induce a million of his
race now in the Soothers States-to
emigrate to Mexico, and several rail

range with him to return to the btates
and osnvass the south for laborers.
MoKelvin, it is understood, will make
