So far the writer listened to the nar
rative as it was related by one of the
fugitives one night near the close of the
war, in a quiet little house nestled
among ths Lexington hilU. The nar
rator was the center of a scene of gaye-
and brightness, a villase Dartv. but
one whose culture and refinement was
noticeable as in the most brilliant
gatherings in the city. A lady sat near

even in that scene of pleasure. The
shadow of some great sorrow hung
about her life, and all the rosy hopes ot
youth had faded in their bloom.
I had noticed an evident constraint in
manners, when in the'evening she
was brought in contact with Mr. 1V
or the guests. They appeared to
mutually avoid each other; or rather
,refrained. from paying attentions
that he feared would be considered dis-
igrceable. And yet gossips said that
they had once been lovers.

"I am going back for my ring," he
At these words the eazer listening-
lady started visibly, and her face flush
scarlet. But the narrator did not
perceive it, and went on with,hi,-sioiy.
"What ring?"' i asked "not that
little gold circlet I saw you wearing?"
"les," he said, "it was the gift of a
dear friend. Tlaid it aside as wo were
working under the wall, lest I should
break.it, and in tho hurry of escape I

wall when I thought of it, but I would

There was no.doubt of the ladv's in
terest In the narrative now. She lean-
Torward in her chair. Hcrwholn
was absorbed in listening. Not a
word, not an accent escaped her straln-
and eager senses. My interest In the
story had given way to my interest in
lauy. x never saw such Intensity
feeling in mv life.
"I expostulated with him." continued
narrator; "I ridiculed the idea;
what value is the riug? Tell the Iudy

could then say I loved liberty andner-
sonal freedom better than the gift she
gave me. "
"And he returned ?"
It was the lady who asked the ques
tion. Her voice was very low, and the
Inquiry came with a choking utterance.
"He did, and served for his pains nine
lreary months of imprisonment, a soli
tary captive, with a ball and chain."
"And tho ring," we all demanded
"He did not And it."
Even as he spoke, the lady rose from
chair and passed across the room to
where Mr. W. was sitting.
As quick as thought it llislii il upon
s: these were parties.
I heard her say us she came close

The sadmask had dropped from
face. Her eyes' were full of tears
not of bitterness.
It is useless to tell of the happy wed

readers can imagine that. And, so ends
the story of the ring.
TRUE THROUGH ALL. On Mad Dogs.
The eminent sunreon. Dr. John C.
Dallon, has transmitted to the Board of
Health of .New Tork a letter in which
he refers to three prevalent errors con
cerning hydrophobia,' and also Dre
scribes directions for its, prevention.
The principal danger of Infection br
hydrophobia consists in the fact that
people in general do not know a mad
Hog when they see one. If they could
do so, they would be in no dansrer. But
point of fact they mistake other af
fections, which ara comparatively
harmless, for hydrophobia, but the dis
ease itself they do not recognize. The
popular diagnosis of hydrophobia'rests
mainly on three erroneous ideas, viz.
first, that a mad dog Is to be met with
only in' hot weather: second, that he is
afraid of water and will not drink;
and thirdly, that he is ferocious and
aggressive. Neither of these state
ments is true. Abundant experience,
derived from carefully collected statis
tics, has shown thathrdrODhobia in the
dog;occurs.at least,as. frequently in the
nter anu spring as in the hummer
The rabid dog is.not afraid of water,
id will frequently drink when he has
the opportunity; and he is by no means
ways aggressive or violent luUie car
' stages of the' disease. The conie-
qucuco of this ertor is that if people
! a dog, in cool weather, willing to
ink, and not paiticularlv ferocious in
manner, they are not afraid to arv
proach or handle him; and yet be may
belTcapable of inflictinirra fatal wound
even 01 communicating the disease
licking an abraded spot on the hand
Another frequent and serious mis
take is this. As soon as a vaorant do?
has bitten any one, the first impulse of
tue bystanders is to kill him. But when
this has been dont, tha only possible
means of knowing whether the animal
were really mad is lost, "and several
months mnst elapse before the iniured
person can be relieved of anxiety from
this source. It is evident that such a
dog should never be killed at once, but
should be secured and kept under ob
servation for a few days, till his symp
toms are fully dcveleped. In the laree
majority of cases it would turn out that
the disease was not hydrophobia.
His directions are :
1. A dog that is sick, from any cause.
should bo watched and treated careful
until liU recovery.
2. A dog that is sick and restless is
object of suspicion. This is the ear
liest peculiar symptom of hydrophobia.
J. A dog that is sick aud restless and
has a depressed appetite. '!ruawiu? and
swallowing bits of cloth, wood, coal,
brick, mortar, or ills own duns, is a
dangerous animal. He should be at
once chained up, and kept in confine
ment until his condition be clearly as
certained. 4. If, in addition to any or all of the
foregoing symptoms, the dog has delu
sion of tbe senses, appearing to see or
hear imaginary sights or sounds, trying
pass through a closed door, catching
flies in the air when there are nine.
searching for something which does
not Mist, there is great probability that
is, or is -becoming, hydrophobic.
should be secured aid confined wlth-
In case any one is bitten by a do?
hose condition is suspicious, the most
effective and beneficial treatment Is to
cauterize the wonnd at once with a
stick of silver nitrate, commonly called
lunar caustic." The stick of caustic
should be sharpened to a pencil point,
itroduced quite to the bottom of the
wound, and held in contact witit every
part of the wounded surface until It is
thoroughly cauterized and insensible.
This destroys the virus by which the
disease wsuld be communicated.
Recollections of a Dentist's
"Mark Twain," in his new book about
England, tells how ho had the tooth
ache 0110 night in London, and frives
some pleasing recollections of the den
tist's rooms which he was wont to pat
ronize when he lived in Elmira. He
says: "One night that tooth did iust
jump, and. every time It jumped it rais-
i my head ngnt ou the pillow. How
did lie awake and think about that
dentist's shop in Elmira, where I had
been under torture so many times of
those pretty dental instruments, so pol
ished and so cold! How I did long to
my cheek against one one of those
short thick, heavy twisted chaps, with
bow-leireed, fluted and curved
handles, and short haws-bill jaws ! Ho w
revelled In delight at the thought of
having such" a thinjriclutch mv refrac
tory tooth and "yank it!" With what
pleasurable emotions cama crowding
into my miud the recollections of that
dentist and his room and Ills fixtures
big, easy chair, witii tho pretty
white-curtained window before it, and
nice, big red glass spittoon to the
left, with the hole in the bettom, and
bits or red cotton and tho bright
pieces of gold and streams of blood
stained (saliva on the sides. And then,
pretty little bureau with the bottles
n tue top and tho little yellow drawers
hich he jerks out sogently when seek
lg for some new and more delicate in
strument of torture. And then that
beautiful little, round, velvet-covered
stand on the gas fixture in front, cov
ered with the nice drills, and pretty
ilies, and the lovely little crowbars with
stained ivory handles, and tho lone
steel crochet needles with which he
hunts for new cavities, and the little
round pasteboard box full of gold
"plugs," and the dirty little nankin.
and tho rubber ball syringe, and the
singular smell of his thumb, and all
that! Oh, how nice."
A lew days ago, two unknown ladies
called on Mr. Bergh, of the New York
Society for the prevention of Cruelty to
Animals, and handed lilm a little box
containing a $00 bill and $250 in gold
saying tlioy wished thus to testify their
affection to tho animal world. In an-

IRRIGATION CANALS IN PUEBLO VIEJO
Mr. J. A. Parker, Superintendent of
the Montezuma Canal Company, whose
works are located in Pueblo Viejo Val
ley, Arizona, has arrived in this city
and from him we havo obtained a fund
of information relative to that country
The Pueblo Viejo Valley lies south of
and bordering on tho Gila River, and
between it and the Graham range of
mountains. It is about 400 miles east of
Yuma, 30 miles north of Camp Grant,
and 1C miles west of the New Mexico
line. Thi3 valley is about CO miles long
and averages 4 miles in width and con
tains as fine agricultural and grazing
land as pan be found anywhere. About
a year ago four companies commenced
the construction of Irrigation canals at
this point, and have now completed
from three to six miles each of their
A CHAIN OF CITIES IN RUINS.
In this beautiful and fertile valley is
chain of well marked ruins of ancient
cities located about a mile apart. In
some places the walls of the houses still
show above the surface, and at others
the rolling mounds, from 10 to 40 feet
In height, 'covered with earth and vege
tation, show that ages must have passed
since they were laid prostrate. Mr.
Parker, who is a man possessed of an
inquiring mind, and is backed by liter
ary attainments ot a nign order, na3
devoted most of his spare time during
the last year in researches among
these ancient rnins. The walls arc
composed efrough stones, laid in mor
tar. Excavations within their limits
indicate that all the cities were
DESTROYED BY FIRE.
Among the debris aro found pottery,
household utensils, and human bones
bu t as yet no warlike implements have
been brought to light. The human
ones show unmistakable evidences of
having been burned, and crumbled to
pieces upon being handled. Several
ollas (pronounced o-yabs) jug shaped
earthen vessels, now used by the In-
ians for holding water were found,
which contained ashes, small pieces of
human bones, and fragments of char
coal, which wonld Indicate that crema
tion was practiced by that extinct peo
ple. Axes,hammtrs, and the sledges of
various sizes and shapes, aud made
from stone which is much heavies and
harder than any known of, have been
brought to light. One nf these axes
found by Mr. Parker was tested by him
He cut a rod of iron in two with it, and
no pcrcep table effect was produced up
on the axe by the operation. This rel
ic has been sent to tbe World's Fair for
ANCIENT POTTERY AND RARE STONES.
Mr. Parker has quite an extensive
collectlonof pieces of pottery which he
dug out of these ruins. He brought
with him to the city several specimens,
which he has presented to the Alta. The
veesels were evidently made of clay,
which is now of a dark gray color, and
hard as a stone. The surfaces are
nicely glazed and covered with lines
and characters of different colors frou
the work. One piece has a black sur
face covered with yellow, Irregular
lines, and surrounded by a simllzr col

A careful examination shows that

reservoirs are reported by those who
have niado but a casual examination of
them, as the ruins of old fortifications.
Tha edges ot the canal and reservoir
are laid with stone, and are constructed
a very substantial manner. Some of
the reservoirs, which were six or eight

tlrely around the structure, was placed
at the time the building was putt up a
row of cedar beams, which probably
served to brace and strengthen the
building. Theend3 of these timbers,
which" arc still in a stata of preservation
show that they were consumed by fire,
up to and in some instances, part way
through the wall. There are now three
stories of the wall stilt standing in one
place. The windows are long and nar
jow, and seem to have been placed
where they were needed, and without
regard to external symmetry. The
doors are at th.corners. At the top of
the inside walls are several round holes
about tho size of a hat. The art of plas
tering seems to have been perfect in
those days, as the inner wall Is still
smooth, and of a yellowish white color.
What this building was used for can
only be conjectured, as It stands in an
open space, surrounded ky the same'
olass of ruins as those above referred
to. It is probable that it was a. church,

Near this building, and at other
points-among these ruined cities, are
still standing rows of cedar posts, set
on very accurate lines. The upper end
of these posts look old, and have, been
worn by the elements, still they are in
a good state ot preservation. The por
tionthat are in the ground are much
larger and very little affected by age.

above can be found all over Southern
Arizona, New Mexico Territory, and
the northern part of Mexico wherever
there are fertile valleys and flowing
Little or nothing is known of the peo
ple who built these cities, or when
they existed. Tho Indians say that
long ago the inhabitants of these places
were summoned off to the South, and
engaged in a battle in which thy were
killed. They probably derived this
story from the early Americans or
Mexiaans who visited this section, and
seeing the ruins, concluded that ,they
were formerly occupied by one of the
semi-civilized tribes with which Monte
zuma, the Mexican King, made war,
and perhaps plundered their cities and
burned them. This is simple conjec
ture. If these were the facts, as Monte
zuma kicked up his troubles about three
hundred and sixty 'years ago, we wonld
probably have had some account of it.
And then again, there ara, we believe,
no such pottery and household imple
ments in Mexico as have been found in
the Arizona ruins.
