Well, this is The Times of two days
ago. It reached Sidney at breakfast
time this morning, and Hatton brought
two or three copies out when he came
with the mail. I thought you two might
be interested." And with that the
colonel goes strolling along down the
bank of the stream, pausing here and
there to chut with some officers or give
tome order relative to the grating of
tho horses one of his especial "fads."
And this evening, just as tho sun dis
appears ovor the jw liluil lying to tne
west and the hordes era being picketed
for the night, while from a score of cook
fires the appetiiing savor of antelope
steak and the aroma of "soldiorcoffoo"
rise upon the air, a little dust cloud
sweeps out from the ravine into which
disappears the Sidney road and comes
floating out across the prairie. Keen
eyed troopers quickly note the speed
with which it travels toward thorn.
Officers and men, who have just been
looking to the security of their steeds,
pause now on their way to supper and
stand gazing through the gloaming at
the coming cloud. In five minutes the
cause is apparent two swift riders,
urging their horses to full speed, racing
for the ford. Five minutes more and
the foremost throws himself from the
saddle in the midst of the group at the
colonel's tent and hands that officer a
telegraphic dispatch, which is received,
opened, read with imperturbable grav
ity and pocketed. To the manifest
chagrin of the courier and disappoint

Two days later. A fierce July sun is
pouring down a flood of humid, mois
ture laden heat upon a densely packed,
sweltering mass of turbulent men,
many of them flushed with drink, all
of them flushed with triumph, for the ill
armed, ill disciplined militia of the sev
enties a, pygmy force as compared with
the expert "guardsmen" of today has
been scattered to the winds; the sturdy
' police have been swept from the streets
and driven to tho shelter of the sta
tions. Mob law rules supreme. Dense
clouds of smoko are rising from sacked
and ruined Warehouses and from long
trains of burning cars. Here and there
little groups of striking employees have
gathered, holding aloof from the reck
less and infuriated mob, appalled at the
sight of riot and devastation resulting
from their ill advised action. Many of
their number, conscious of ' their re
sponsibility for tho scones of bloodshed
and pillago and wanton destruction of
property, publio and private, would
now gladly undo their work and array
themselves among the few defenders of
the great corporations they have served
for years and deserted at the call of
leaders whom they never saw and in a
cause they never understood, but there
can be "no footsteps backward" now.
The tide of riot has engulfed the great
city of the west, and the majesty of tho
law is but the laughing stock of the
lowest of the masses. Huddled in their
precinct stations, the police are bandag
ing their bruised and broken heads.
Rallied at their armorieB, the more de
termined of the militia aro preparing to
defend them and their colors against
the anticipated attack of 50 times their
force in "toughs" Chicago's vast
Accumulation of outlawed, vagabond
or criminal men. The city fathers are
well nigh hopeless. Merchants and
business men gather on 'change with
"blanched faces and the oft repeated
query: "What nest? What next?"
.Every moment brings tidings of fresh
'dismay. New fires and a crippled and
helpless department, for the rioters

to scorn, A gleam of hope shone in at
10 o'clock, and the boardroom rang
with cheers at tho president's announce
ment that the regulars were coming a
whole regiment of infantry from Oma
ha was already more than half way.
But the gloam died out at noon when,
-with white lips, an official read the tel
egram Baying the strikers had "side
tracked" the special trains bearing tho
soldiers, and they could not advance
another mile. .
And so they had on one road, but
there are others, better guarded, better
run. The sun is well over to the west
again, Chicago is resigning . itself to
another night of horror, when front the
suburbs there comes gliding in to the
heart of the city the oddest looking
railway train that has been seen for
years, a sight at which a host of riot
ous men break-away, from . the threat

Covered with dust and cinders, hardly
a vestige of uniform among them, in
the shabbiest of old felt bats, in hunt
ing shirts of flannel or buckskin, in
scout worn trousers and Indian leg
gings, but with their prairie belts
crammed with copper cartridges, their
brawny brown hands grasping the
browner carbine, their keen eyes peer
ing straight into the faces of the throng
ing crowd, their bronze features set and
stern, the whole car fairly bristles with
men who have fought tribe after tribe
ef Mvage foes from the Yellowstone to
thi Bonora line, and who hold a savage
Tsob in utter contempt. Here by the
hub of the gatling's wheel stands old
Feeny, close at the elbow of dark faced
Drammond. C troop's first platoon,
"mans" the gatling gun, and under its
old loader of tho Arizona campaigns
"lends the procession" into tho Garden
City of the antebellum days. By
Drummond's side is a railway official
gazing ahead to see that every switch
is properly set and signaling back to
the engineer wbra to "slow," when to
ome confidently 'ahead. Behind the
platform car come orcrmary baggage
and passenger coaches, black with men
in the same rough, devil may'caro
scouting rig. All, except their horses and
horse equipments loft with the quarter
master at Sidnoy station, the battalion
has beon run to Chicago exactly as it
came from the plains, and Chicago's
"toughs," who would have hooted and
jeered perhaps at sight of polished
brasses and natty uniforms, recoil be
wildered before this gang of silent and
disciplined "jayhawkers." Steadily,
silently, ominously, the train rolls
along. As it is rounding a curve sev
eral ugly looking fellows are seen run
ning at speed toward the switch lever
Steadily, silently, ominously, the train
at the next street crossing. Excitedly
the railway man clutches Drummond's
elbow and pointa. Two troopers ore
kneeling close at hand.
"Shoot if they touch thatsvMcn,
says Urummond, ana instantly tne
locks click as the hammers aro brought
to full cock. Tho foremost runner is
dlmost at the iron stand; his hand is
outstretched to grasp it when a gasping,
warning cry reaches his cars. Glancing
back, he sees his fellows scattering to
either side, and one look at the smooth
rolling car reveals the cause ; two car
bines aro leveled at him, and flat he
throws himself on his face and rolls to
one side amid derisive laughter from
the strikers 'themselves. A little far
ther on a knot of suly rioters are gath
ered on the track. No warning whis
tle sounds, and the clanging bell is too
far to the rear to attract their attention.
"Out of the way there 1" is the blunt,
roughly spoken order. No time this
for standing on ceremony. Vengeful
and scowling the men spring aside,
some stooping to pick up rocks, others
reaching into their pockets for the
ready pistol, but rocks are dropped and
pistols undrawn as the train whirls
rapidly by, and wrath gives place to
mystification. Who what are these
strange, silent, stubbly bearded, sun
tanned fellows in slouch hats, flannel
shirts and tho worn old black belts over
the shoulder? Even the engine has its
guard, and half a dozen of them, perch
ed upon tho tender, have leveled their
carbines to flank and rear, ready to let
drive into the crowd the instant a brick
is heaved or a trigger pulled.
And so into the great stone station
they roll, and here they find the plat
forms jammed witli citizens some
drawn by curiosity, some active sym
pathizers in the strike, and many of
them prominent leaders of the mob surg
ing in tho crowded thoroughfare with

at the front door of the next car.
In the very fraction of a second the
first sergeant and a dozen men have
leaped from tho deck, and straight into
the heart of tho crowd they go. "Back
with yel Out o' this!" are the stern,
determined orders, emphasized by vig
orous prods with the heavy carbine
butts. Astonished at methods so prompt
and decided, there is only such resist
ance as the weight and bulk of those in
rear can offer, and that is but moment
ary. Tho sight of those gleaming gat
ling barrels, the stern, brief orders and
the rapid, confident advance combine
to overcome all idea of resistance. - On
both sides, at the head of the train, the
huge crowd, halt laughing, half suffo
cating, is heaved back upon itself and

up to the iron lattice at the office end,

lice deploy on either side and check the
attending crowd. Over they go at
route step, and then, turning to the
right, tramp on down a roughly paved
street, growing dim and dimmer every
minute with stifling smoke. Presently
they are crossing makelike lines of
hose, gashed and useless; passing firs
apparatus standing unhitched and neg
lected; passing firemen exhausted and
listless. Then occasional squads of
scowling men give way before their
steady tramp and are driven down alley
ways and around street corners by re
viving police. Then the head of ool
timn turns to the left and comes full
upon a scene of tumult a great build

about it defying police Interference and
bent apparently on gutting the struc

at its front, Wing, his subaltern, anx

stalwart man in grizzled -beard and
slouching bat evidently a leader of

ders and encouragement. What he says
cannot be heard, but now, tightly
wedged between the rows of buildings,
the mob is at bay, and yelling mad re
sponse to the frantic appeals and gestic
ulations of their leader at least 2,000
reckless end infuriated men have faced
the little battalion surging steadily up
the narrow street. v
"Yon may have to fire.Drummond,"
says the colonel coolly. "Get in rear
of your company." Obediont, the tall
lieutenant turns and follows bis chief
along the front of his advancing line so
as to pass r.round tho flank. He is not

mob leader, with half a dozen half
drunken satellites, is shouting his ex
hortations. Just as the lieutenant's
arm is grazing grim old Feeny 's elbow

a brick comes hurtling through the air,

Godfasake don't fire 1 Out of the way I"
ore the frantio yells from the throats
of the mob. Away they go, scattering
down side streets, alley ways, behind
lumber piles, everywhere anywhere.
Many even throw themselves flat on
their faces to escape the expected tem
pest of lead. "Don t fire," says the
colonel mercifully. - "Forward, double
time, and give them the butt We 11
support yon." Down from the lumber
piles come the erstwhile truculent load
ers. "Draw cartridge, men," orders
Wing in wrath and disappointment
"Now, butts to the front, and give
them h 1. Forwardl" And out he
leaps to take the lead, dashing straight
into the thick of the scattering mob, bis
men 'after him. There is a minute of
wild yelling, cursing, of resounding
blows and trampling feet, and in tne
midst of it all a single shot, and when
Wing, breathless, is finally halted two

A Ke-w Itailroad Spike.
An invention cf considerable value in
railroad construction and cf great interest
ia a now spike. With the usual shaped head
it has indentations at the sides and barbs
or notches at intervals. The purpose of
these is to hold the spike firmly in place.
When driven into the wood, the fibers,
which are ordinarily damp, will swell and
fill the Indentations or grooved spaces and
will hold tho spike firmly in place. The
tenacity of the new stria as compared with
the old plain spike is almost as great as
the difference between a call and a screw.
By the use of the improved spike the dan
gers of railway travel are greatly decreased,
as accidents from spreading of tho rails ara
