1 tht following lines from one of ibe- boyk
who captured Oklahoma may give some
faint idea of how they felt over the Inva
statu Weltarted ont for the silvery strands
Of-what Is known as the Oklahoma lands.
Our hearts were light ror we hoped to take
The Garden of Eden without the make ;
We expected to find a land or flowers,
With trout-lined streams and sylvan bowers
Where UieUaels-uneadier and the frisky
Watched droves of wolves as they barked
at the Boon ;
Wild turkeys and grouse and antelope.
And bBsTalo lining the gentle slope ;
Wl'h bearer and otter; and muskrat and
And water too pure for angels to drink.
Wc had teams and wagons and plenty to
'AVer loaded with flour add canned goods
And a jolly lot of good fellows together;
The only drawback General Pope and the
AVe found, when we stntck the promised
The soil neither good nor the climate bland;
But worse than rain or cold or sleet,
Was the cavalry force we had to meet ;
And astf to add to cold andgrlef and l.hame,

without once daring to pan our triggers.

If ever we get back to family's bosom,
We'll stay there, no more to leave 'em,

K LUCKY SLIP.
It was about 12 o'clock on a dark, cold
February night ; the rain bad been pour
ing down steadily for several days. One
could hardly imagine a more bleak, deso
late station than Elmwood on that night,'
with one lamp making darkness visible, the
platform an Inch deep in rain, and a sleepy
station-master and porter giving the only
indication of life.
Mr. Hugh Lambert, as be got out of the
train aud went, to look alter his luggage,
felt very thankful that he had only a mile
to drive before reaching home. He waa a
man or about forty, old ror bis years, and
slightly gray; in figure he waa tall and well
made, and bis face had an expression of
As a rule, few passengers alighted at
Elmwood by that late train ; but on this
night there were two besides Hugh Lam
berta young lady and her maid, with a
goodly pile of luggage. Hugh was wonder
ing a little as to where they could be going,
when he heard the girl ask the station-master
If there was a carriage waiting from
Mrs. Newton, of Priarton.
Why, the road hat bin blocked since six
o'clock, miss. There's bin a big land-slip,
and they're working all night to get it
cleared. 1 don't think you'll get to Priar
ton this week, what with the slip and the
"What am I to do?" exclaimed the girl,
with a lace or blank despair. "Is there no
other road to get to Priarton?"
Hugh Lambert was listening with some
interest. Mrs. Newton was bis nearest
neighbor, and a great friend of his ; this
must be ber niece, of whom be had often
heard. He approached.the lady and raised
his hat courteously.
"I am sorry to say there is no other road
to Priarton, nor Is there any way or getting
there to-night. I heard or the land-slide
only about an hour ago, and know that the
road is completely blockaded."
"What can I do?" the girl asked. ''Is
there an inn here, or must I take the next
train back to the nearest town?"
"The last train's gone an hour ; and there
hain't no inn in tbe country side save pub
lic" this from the porter.
"You must let me arrange this matter ror
you," said Hugh Lambert. "I think I
must be speaking to Mrs. Newton's niece,
"You have guessed rightly." And Dor
thy Nayton looked up eagerly, delighted to
find some one to whom she was known, if
only by name
She was a bright little body, pleasant
looking, though she could not lay claim to
great beauty a brunette, with a clear,
olhe complexion, dark eyes and straight
nose. She bad crossed from Ireland that
afternoon, she told her new acquaintance ;
aud so, of course, her aunt might not have
expected her to arrive so early.
"You must let me take care or you,"
Lambert said. "My place Is close by; I
will take you there, and send a messenger
to your aunt as soon as possible, to let her
know that you are safe."
Just at that minute a horse was beard
galloping up the dark road, and presently
a man came hurrying into tbe station.
"Is there a young lady here for Priar
ton ?" he asked.
Dorthy went forward eagerly.
"If you please, miss, here's a note from
Mrs. Newton. I've been four hours getting
here ; I bad to ride twelve miles round, for
the road's blocked, and the floods are out.
I bad to get a boat at the low meadows, and
borrow another horse on this side, and that
has delayed me In getting here."
Hardly waiting to listen to this long ex
planation from the old coachman, Dorthy
tore open tbe note and read :
"My Dearest Child: 1 am in great
distress. The road between here and tbe
station has been blocked by a tremendous
land-slide, so it is impossible to send the
carriage to meet you. I have, therefore,
forwarded a note to my great Mend, Hugh
Lambert, asking bim to send ror you and
give you and your maid shelter for tbe night
till we see what is to be done. He is tbe
only neighbor on that side or the land-slip,
and Is so charming that you need not mind
going to him; it is, Indeed, the only thing
te be done.
"In great haste, your loving aunt,
The coachman had also given Hugh Lam
bert a note.
"I was to have left it at Leyton, sir," he
said; "but T heard you was coming by
Lambert glanced at the conteuts, and then
turned to Dorthy.
"Your aunt has kindly trusted you to me
now; so you won't mind accompanying
me home, will you?" he asked.
"I think it Is you who ought to mind,"
was Dortby.'s iaswer. "I am afraid we shall
be giving you too much trouble. It's very
good of you."
A minute later, the waa seated beside
bim in .the. dog-cart, spinning along the
dark roads into what waa to her an un
known! country. i ..
Dorthy was very tired, and was thankrul
to reach 'the bouse arid be handed over to
the care of the house-keeper. Very soon

found, the road would be ifflBaaeiblefor
several days ; so be wrote to Mrs. Xewtosty
begging her to let Dorthy remain with him
instead of returning home, and asked an
elderly cousin who lived a few stations' off,
to come and act as chaperon.
The old lady accepted the Invitation and
the post alloted to her ; but, aa she -was
great invalid, Dorthy and Hugh were con
stantly left together. He liked to sit In the
dusk and hear her sweet voice singing to
to him, to watch ber arranging flowers, and
to consult her about the garden. The girt
felt supremely happy be waa to kind to

A fortnight went by. and the road was
pronounced perfecUy .if,, u.e floods
had subsided. So Hugh had do excuse for
detaining hit fair guest longer, and, though
very reluctant to part with her, he drove
her over to Priarton..
She was standing fn the hail ai he left that
night, after dinner, and held out ber hand
to tay good bye.
"I can't thank you enough for all your
kindness," she said, sottly.
"Nay, my child, I cannot tell you what a
a pleaiure it baa been to me ; but, perhaps,

Hugh Lambert felt that tometbing very

And Dortby began to watch for hit com
ing, and U by chance something' detained
bim at home, bow long the day teemed,
and how uninteresting everything was. At
first tbe justified itto herself by the thought
of her friendship lor' him a friendship
which had ripened quickly in the peculiar
circumstances or their meeting, but little
by little, as time passed, and she had been
at Prairton nearly three months, it dawned
upon the girl that the reeling she entertain,
ed for Hugh Lambert was tometbing
more than mere friendship. She fought
against herself with all the strength of her
nature ; she could not bear to prove false to
her own theoriet and traitor to her favorite
cause; but finally she fell the struggle was
hopeless, and made up hermind to keep her
secret securely locked In her own bosom.
While gathering primroses one tweet
spring afternoon, Dorthy heard a step crush
tbe dead leaves, and saw Hugh coming to
"I want to speak to you," be said. "Will
you walk with me a little ?"
Frscntly be turned sharply, and took both
her hands, looking more in earnest than
she bad ever teen him look.
"I can't stand this any longer," be cried
out. "I must know my fate one way or the
other. It is true that I am years older, but
no one will ever care for you better than I
do. II you cannot love me la return, I will
go away and never worry you any more, I
give you my word. Am I to go, Dortby?"
"Go! oh, no!" the. gasped out, hardly
able to realize what tbe was saying, only
feeling as if the could not breathe, ber
heart beat to wildly.
Not long afterward there waa a happy
wedding at the dear old Irish home ; and
then Dortby came back to brighten up tbe
the bouse at Leyton.
Hugh Lambert would have been lets, or
more than a man If he could have resisted
triumphing over her a little, and, as they
went into tbe library, where be and she
bad bravely defended theories, he turned
and said :
"By-the-by, Dortby, who was right, after
all, abont Platonic friendthlps?"
ARE TRAFFIC CHAR8ES TO0 LOW ?
Tbe more tbe subject of railway traffic
rates is examined the more apparent, says
the Railroad Indicator. It will become tbat
competition and the desire to meet the pn
lie demand for cheap transportation hat re
sulted In bringing down freight rates on tbe
trunk lines to a degree tbat t'ocs not leave
idends may be paid at regular stated peri
ods on shares, yet there are but few of these
roads that are not forced to increase their
indebtedness on every call for unusual ex
penditure. To the most successful compa
nies an end mutt come to thla continual en
largement of capital account. Tbla cannot
go on forever, and on many roads it cannot
be continued much longer without resum
ing in irreparable disaster. On the rail
roads of tbe United States, and especially
on what are known as trunk roads, traffic
Is conducted at a lower price than on tbe
railroads of any other country where this
means or transportation Is In use. It is too
low In proportion to the cost or conducting
operations. On tbe English railways tbe
average ratio of expenses to earnlsgs is
about SZ per cent, and on American roads
the average is about 00 per cent., while the
average earnings per ton per mile are In fa
vor of the English roads. In but very few
easet do any European road carry freight
at the rate of one cent per ton and mlltv
In Holland potatoes in open trucks are car

1.25 cent ; in Ireland about 1.4 cent. Grain
is carried from Glasgow to Newcastle 166
miles, for about 1.6 cent per ton aad mile.
In the United States grain la carried from
Chicago to New York for about 0.83 cent
per ton and mile, aad provisions for about
OS ceat per ton aad mile. This rate, with

THE A.J49.F. LAND 8RANT BUESTIQN,
State Aftit Crassfara's Explaatita.
We are in receipt of a copy or tbe briet
filed In the Interior department In relation
to the alleged excess or lands certified to
the Atchison, Topeka A Santa Fe Railroad
Company in this State. Tbe brier was pre
pared by non. S. J. 'Crawford, agent for
tbe State at Washington, and shows that
on the lltb or January the commissioner
of tbe general land office stated In on offi
cial communication to the secretary of the
Interior tbat an excess of Indemnity lands
bad been approved lor the Santa Ke Com
The act or congress by, which tbe grant
or lands was made to the Santa Fe road
was passed in 1883, Tbe length or this line
In Kansas is 469.5 miles, but the. length of
road for which grants vs; ere made is for 100
miles less, as tbe first hundred miles of this
road was through lands urauted the other
railroads and Indian lands, with Ibe excep
tion of a few tracts., These. Indian lands
were excepted, and would have, been had
no express reservation been made.
Mr. Crawford In the pamphlet goes on to
say that if" every odd section within tbe
ten-mile granted limits had been a frill sec
tion, and every acre vacant and unappro
priated, the total amount of land that
have inured to the company under this
grant, would have been 3,000 sections, or
2f 1,600 acres. There hare been approved
and certeded to the company up to the pres
ent date, 2,743,938.47 acres,to Which amount
is to be added 189,000 acres still remaining
uncertified within granted limits (lists of
which are now pending before the depart:
ment ol the interior for certification), mak
ing a foil total or 2,934,933 acres', or 572,338
acres more than was granted by congress
for this road.
But all tbe land on tho line of tbe road
was not vacant land. For more than 40
miles beyand the 100-mile limit above men
tioned, tbe land bad beea largely taken up
by prior disposals and appropriation?, and
on the remainder or the line a considerable
amount had also beeu disposed .or or ap
propriated by valid claims prcvioua-to the
grant. Tbe amount or exeeat is 5i2,33S
acres, to which added tbe amount, disposed
or prior, to tbe date ol the grant to home
stead and pre-emption scltlcrt-, etc., being.
150,000, tbe total is.723,338 acres. If there
had been no prior disposal of lands tbe ex
cess would' still be 532,338 acres.
Tbe questions submitted by the com
missioner are at to whether railroad in
demnity is allowable under this grant in
any of tbe following particulars :
1. For lands embraced in Indian reser
vations at date or railroad grant, or for In
dian lands within said reservations where
the .same bad previously been disposed or
for the benefit or the Indians.
2. For lands selected by tbe State for
school purposes, or covered by valid claims
at tbe date of tbe grant.
3. For lands previously' granted to an
other railroad company.
4. For lands within tbe grant for the A,
T S. F. road which have been relinquish
ed by this road to a company having a sub
Mr. Crawford' takes the general ground
that tbe first, third and fourth' questions do
not exist in this case, and quotes decisions
of tbe supreme court ol the United States
to' fortify his position. At to the second
question', be says tbat upon tbe plain, stat
utory lawbf the'ease there Is, andean be,
no manner ol doubt. He further says t
Now only public lands In tbe statutory
sense or the public land lawi were granted.
Lands to which the title of tbe United
Statct bad already passed coald not be
granted. Congress cannot grant what the
United States does net possess.- The Unit
ed States doe not possets what It bat al
ready sold or conveyed. Such laads are not
public land In any sense. Tbey have
ceased to be lands or tbe United States, and
have become private property. Cosgesa
could not, .without a breach of public faitb,.'
grant any lands it bad contracted to sell, or
convey. It did. net intend to graut such
laads. It had contracted to sell tad-eouvey.
lands oceupied by homettead and pre-emption
settlements. It had made other pro
visions In respect toother lands which bad
beea appropriated in the same manner un
der such provisions. The fattb or tbe
United States had been pledged iu respect
to such lands.--IttJBWlgatioos were en.
cumbent upon tbe. title'. It .was not legally
competent for congress to grant these land
away from those wbo bad a prior legal or
equitable claim to them. Tbat its purpose
might not, be misunderstood it expressly
excepted tuch lands, from the grant and de
clared it did not grant them.
Tbe point at Issue in, the wbole matter is
not an application to the interior depart
ment to forfeit any.of tbe land grant of the
Santa Fe road or of any other road. Tbe
legislature at its recent cession pasted a
resolution, which, In a general way, direct
ed an inquiry, to be made on behalf of tie
State as to any.'landi.tyblcb might not have
been .properly earned.by .railroad compan
ies, and therefore still properly public do
main, wltbla, the. State, from the proctitis
of the sale of which ibe State would, be
entitled to five per cent. The claim In this
case,, as can, readily be, seen, la ujat tbe
Santa, Fe roailbaa already. received an ex
cess ofjaovU wjtbin the Indemnity limit,
sad tbat for this reason a. portion at least
of, tbe.landt claimed, within, the but sec
tion, of.tweoty miles should, bewilbaeld
front th compaay.and regarded as public
domain. Therefore, tbe issue i one of
computation simply, and not as to the le
gality of the .rraat orJU forfeitable aatare.

Payne did not da 'ir he stated In a speech' to
the' colonists', one evening W eamji ' otrthe
Cimmaroh river. Payne said hei'wwrtd

willingly, and his throat cutfromeir to ear

should meet the' soldiers', he wdotdf be "the'

morning we broke up camp aad started' for
the- Canadian. Along- in- the afternoon,
traveling down Cofiee-creekl-'we met f.lcutl'
Stevens with five ucgro soldier. The'
Lieutenant passed the front wagons, to'
wher Opt. Payne- was riding a little sop
rel mare behind tbe 23d' wagon. At'sootr a
they reached It; and taw Payne, theyttrrn'-'
ed, arid Lieut! Stevens sainted Payne; and
told him "that he must conslderhlmself un
der arrest. The -wagon train did not stop
moving-. Soon'after Payne' left the train
with Stevens and bis negro soldiers, and 1
galloped ahead out of sight. Travellngabout
one hour.wecame'to tbe soldiers camp eoa-
tittlngof oneslx-mute team, one negro drl-
ver.the Lieutenant andtevea negro soldiers.
Stevens had hit tf.nt.sek. upland here wc
found Pajiro,' in UaqUwjeaat;tAtent
smoking a fine Havana eigar. The colonist
all camped up andtlawnf iald creek for over
two miles. Stevens had It alt fixed up with
Payne for us to stay here otkthls creek tin
Capt. Carroll could come up from Reno with
the balance of the soldiers, and have agood.
showing to disorganize the colony j.but the,
determined men would not listen to Stevens
and Payne, and concluded to start in the
morning for the North Canadian river val
ley. When morning came tbe colonists
were al on the road, with Payne and Lieut.
Stevens following up tbe rear, till, we reach
ed Deep Fork. Here a crossing had to be
made. Alter the crossing was made, Payne,
Stevens and six nezro soldiers crossed, and
started ahead of the colony agsln. The next
we saw or Payne was on me camp-ground
of surrender, on the banks of the North
Cauadlan river. The next ilay nobody was
allowed to leave camp. Along In the even
ing, Capt- Carroll arrived on the ground
with ninety-one negro soldiers, pitching
camp in Iront ol us. As soon as 'their camp
was staked, Capt. Carroll sent Lieut. Ste
vens to Payne, requesting him to come over
to Capt.Carroll's tent,and also tent afterMr.
W. II. Osburn. Mr. Oj'buru refused to go,
saying, that If Carroll had any business with
him, be should come to bU'tcnt. Payne
marched ofl with Stevens to Carroll's tent.
Arriving there, the Uavanas were pasted
arouud, and a general smoke of peace and
a good time was bad at the tent. That was
tbe last of Payne ; he never appeared be
fore the colony again ; bis bravery was gone,
and be gave no Instructions to do anything
to keeD the colonists together, till In tbe
morning a man coming to the camp,, report
ed tbat Capt Carroll bad received a tele
gram to let the colonists remain ihrce days
till further orders. Shortly after that, Stev
ens, coming over to me camp, gave orucrt
that all who wished to return home could re
turn on that day unmolested, and thote that
would not go, would be taken, back th
next day. So I went oyer to tell to Capt.
Carroll, that It was reported in camp tbat
wc had three days to rest up our teams.
He said no, that lie. never gare any
such order, never gave Payne any time,
And I say, tbat tbl Ave days time given to
Payne,, as. stated by Couch, is not the. case
at all. It is a scheme of Payne and his
whisky boomers to blindfold innocent peo
ple, and draw them on to be fooled again.
I made up my mind it was understood be
tween Couch. Payne and Cameron, Payne's
attorncy.at-law, to disorganize the colony,
because in a speech made by Cameron In
tbe evening, he said, that the government
bad a right to contiscato all our property.
This speech did more to disorganize the
colony than any other 'thing, and 'Cameron
was the roan that Payne employed to do it.
So I conclude the colony was completely
sold out. Respectfully, H. F. lUfiMnV.
A LECTURE ON LEfiS.
Objection to the Exposure of That Fact
mat Are uniyurn riirtauea.
There Is an outcry against legs. We are
told that'Wc baVci too much or tbem at the
aters. We' do ! and I lay this not'becaus'c
tbe exhibition or them Is Indecenr, hot be
cause It Is ugly. What a woman Is expect
ed to hide and expected loshowls purely a
question or convention. I remember once
passing an afternoon lounglng.alioiit at tbe
Sweet Waters of Aslaon'mo Bosphorus.
Princesses and other lights or tbe harem,
were being dragged about-In bullock carts.
Sooo some of them got out of their convey
ances and 'sat down on the grass. Among
tbem waia girl whom I felt coavlaeed wat
pretty, and I tat down near' ber. Her face
waa covered witb a1 thin veil. Nothing
would have: lndneed her to raise it, but
ber knee and proceeded to aerate Is her bare
leg. This was her Idea of a mild, flirtation
witb a Frank. And why notr Her Eng
lish sister would go to a ball witb neck aad
arms bare ; or, to-put It more correctly.wltb
about a quarter, of ber bosly concealed only
by shonWer straps. Am I not right, there
fore, In saying that the role aa to what por
tion of the female form dlvlaemayiwltb
propriety, be submitted to the eyes or man
kind Is local and not general ? Here' faces,
necks, backs, shoulders anU arms may be
shown; In the east lega-niar be tbowa;
white Inulitland, according to all accoiintSr
the ladles walkabout like Kve belore tb
Rut even In England tbe rule It different
in theatres and in ball rooms. If a girl
were to amiear at th latter In a dress only
reaeb'ing'dewcHo her'i knees; the Jtrbalal sej
regarded as a peculiar girl, whereas she
might do this on the stage without advene
comment. I make Ihcse preliminary
marks In order to prove that I approach tbe
solemn subject without prejudice.
Ten or twelvc.years ago the .ballet girls
used, to wear skirts which came down a Ut
ile below theknee. These skirt were made
or muslin, and there were, to many or them
that when their wearers were dancing tbey
looked like a cloud-, The effect was pretty
and graceful. .But. of late Ihjs cloud of
skirts has disappeared, and' has been re
placed 'by a piece .or' silk fitting tightly to
the figure, like the '-tmoks" of .an acrobat,
anil which tfo not coyer any part or the leg.
To emulate this display tbe principal
dancers eschew everything except one mus
lin petticoat, and this it a very, short one.
What js. the result? Exceeding uinesa.
suppose It may be taken aa x rule that
when a girl lias smal thin arms, she gener
ally has small, tbfn. legs. Anyone, how
ever, has only to look at tbe modern ballet
girl to perccivl- that, although ber arras may
be sticks her Jezs arc elephantine in their
proportion. Tbl ft because, she pads the
latter, and cannot pad the former. This I
bow it I done : Tbe girl goes to a tbestri
rieai hosier; the shape of ber leg is taken,
and then a pair of.tighis'Umade, with wool
woven into them, as the case, may require.
A girt with, her legs done up In cotton wool
with a small piece or silk drawn tightly In
by band", and with naked arm and shonlV
ders. cannot lie said to be maklec an inde
cent exhibition out o.hVraelf, bat, she I
ungainly. She shocks no.morslity. but she
does shock good taste.-, .In me name, there
fore, Of goon taste, mm us go isex to mo
days or cloudy mailiu.luJtt-Ttmti.

A, PLEASANT EP188DE.
A dalnly little girl or eight or nine, with
dangerous big. eyes, appeared In the libra.
iry of the White Hbuis the other.day when
it was roil or great men or one sort and an
other, and quietly waited her turn to speak
with tbe tall, dignified gentleman with tb
gray whiskers abd hair, and the sober fac
and courteous manner down by tbe bow
window In tbe south end of th room. By
anil by her opportunity came. She tripped
forward inodeaUyr but bravely, and with a
name and proffered her request. She was
a niece of General Winfleld Scott Hancock,
and tbe wanted a few tweet flower from
tbe executive conservatory for'the Easter
decoration or a little Episcopal, church.
She smiled'arcblyat sbe told her errand, a
though the wa quite ture of a favorable
response. The pretldent' tired race bright
ened with smiles at be turned' from the
tiresome politicians to tha sweet little faes
before bim. It was like a cooling zephyr
from th Chesapeake on a hot summer's
day. He told ber honestly (bat be wat very
glad to see her, and then be gave her carte
Uanclt In tbe conservatory and dismissed
ber witb a pleasant word or two about hi
own Utile girl, who docs so much to lighten
bis life at the WbJteiHotitei Her hand
some uncle could not nave done more for
ber bad be been standing In Arthur's
THE FEMININE MwUTH.
A person who ha made the feminin
month the subject or much study, volun
teers his conclusions to male wtb sweet
hearts. The sre a follows :"
ir ber mouth Is very small, there is not
much mind, but. overmuch- shallow senti
ment. If thhssy. very; trz; mouth, she
will possess a good braiobut tbe trouble is
In kissing-It. Large mouths put a man to
an artistic test; he will' be driven to his
wit's end whether to begin at' One corner
and conclude at the other, or to make a he
roic dash at the middle,' and endeavor to
reach both corner. But Ir you are a kiss.
Ing artletr It can be covered nicely enough.
It your swestbeart has a coarsely-formeit
mouth, tb wilt be seosnal.snd mil bfstron;
coarse point of character, and will raise a
row In the family,
If sh' ba a delicately-formed mouth;
witb rounded Up, and of a velvety color,
sbe will have sensibility and perfection ol
character, but will not astonish by ber nrll
limey or conception erexectiUon. It Is a
good mouth, because It Is kltsable and sub
missive. Shun blue-llMied or tblri-tipped women ,
they will bor you to death with llteratur
or women's rights, theorize while you want
your dinner, orspollyour tern per with their
red-hot, scolding tongue.
