Fourth Artillery, and a party ol
Warm Spring Indfarftr, nboat
seventy soldiers and fourteen
Indians, to make a reconnoi-
Rance in a sontheaslerly direc

from camp. The party left the
camp about 12 M., and reached
the designated point and were
resting. No Indians had yet
been seen. Suddenly the par

when upon searching in tie
lava chflsm,lhe bodies of Cap
tain Thomas and Lieutenant A.
P. LIowe,Fourth Artillerv, and
Lieutenant Thomas F. Wriftht,

First Lieutenant Arthur Crans

Surgeon B. Semig is seriously

men were killed and wounded.

the men remained together.

of the officers will be taken to

of four warriors have been
found at or near the scene oi
the battle, Captain Mendenhall
reports from Bulfetsville, and
in expected to join us on the
30th. The Indians occupy a
position in the rocks about four
miles south of these caves. It
will be impossible to surround
them with the force at or en

Their Last Massacre. American Cavalry from an English
Standpoint.
English army officers are just
now advocating the establish
ment of a corps of mounted
riflemen. Aa officer writins
to the London Times takes ex
ception to a statement made
by Sir Henry Ilavelock that
General Sheridan's Cavalry do
ring the late war were mounted
riflemen. In doing so he pre
faced his remarks by saying
that he. served with -General
Sheridan's cavalry during the
last year of our war, and then
proceeds as follows: "If being
irrned as far as possible with
Spencer carbines mado them
mounted Tifleinen, well and
gooa; but in every respect
they were essentially cavalry,
nnd it not the best to look at,
were the most effective the
world ever saw. This cavalry
could line a 'stone wall' dis
mount as well as annoy the
flanks of an array, as at the
battle of Winchester; or when
the time came, capture artil
lery, as at Cedar Creek, in the
Shenandoah Valley, a month
afterwards. Tha divisious of
about ten thousand strong,
were commanded by young
men of great dah. Merrill
Custer, etc , were boys of twen
ty-four years of age, but West
Point graduates and giants in
theory if not the practice of
the art of war. Comparisons
a
are odious and imitations unde
sirable, bull would venture to
hint to our economical govern
ment, that by uniting Wool-
vrich and Sandhurst they would
establish a national military
school which would well vie
with, it it did not excel the cel
ebrated establishment on the
Hudson." -:.,
Ashes in the Orchard.
D. W. ,: Kaufman- of Des
Moines, Iowa,; writes to the
Iowa Homestead, that ashes are
worth one dollar per bushel to
put about fruit trees, and that
he would not sell his ashes at
that price, and do without
their use in the orchard. lie
has used ashes about fruit
trees for fifteen years, and du
ring all that time has never.
seen a borer where ashes were
used. The borer is a terrible i
pest to the fruit grower, and if
all other impediments to the
successful growing were as eas
ily overcome, and completely
controlled as is the borer, then
fruit growing would be very
successfully practiced. At the
recent meeting of the Fruit
Growers' Association of Onta
rio, Mr. Moodie stated that he
had been in the habit of using
unleached ashes as a manure
for his fruit trees, and that he
values them more highly lor
thia purpose than barn -yard
manure. If our farmers knew
the value of wood ashes for the
garden, orchard and farm, they
would not sell them lor a few
cents per bushel. The ashes
that they barter for a few
pounds of soap would, if ap
plied to the soil, so increase
their crops of fruit and grain ns
to yield them ten times the
value they now get for them.

The oldest man in the world

Description of the Lava Beds.
Professor Uayden, in charge
ofthe United States expedition
for the geological survey of the
Territories, who last year visit
ed the Lava Beds in Oregon,
now. occupied by the Modoc
Indians, informed a reporter of
the Evening Star that the Lava
Beds are an outflow of volca
nic matter, forming a perfect
sea of melted rock, which, in
gradually cooling, became bro
ken. Innumerable little
streams have worked their
way through," arid the whole
place is filled with caverns.-
Oftentimes they connect with
one another, and extend for
miles under ground. They
vary in width from fifty te five
or six hundred feet. The en
trances to them are generally
very small, and, Iherelore, can
be easily defended. The Lava
Bed comprises from fifty to
one hundred square miles. It
will be a difficult thing to sur
round the Modocs, and there
is great danger of their elud
ing the troops, on account of
the familiarity of the Indians
with the Lava Bed.
The Modocs are the same as
the Digger Indians, and live
upon rabbits, lizzards, snake!,
mice, and all kinds of bugs
and insects, which are found in
the caves.
Usury Laws.
A very instructive lesson as
to the inutility and impractic
ability of usury laws has been
afforded lately by the action ot
a grand jury in New York Citv.
The jury wa charged direct
ly by the Judge, under whose
jurisdiction it came, to consid
er gross violations of the law
which were notorions in the
New York money market The
jury, pecordingly had summon
ed many men who were cog
nizant of the violations of the
law. Direct confessions were
in some cases made that
would Implicate the witnesses
themselves, if followed up, and
enough information gathered
abundantly to confirm the fact
that the usury laws were dead
letters; yet the jury found mat
ters so complicated that the
members tame to the sensible
conclusion to recommend the
repeal of the laws. In accord
ance with this conclusion, they
resorted to the anomalous plan
of deputing three of their
members-to go to Albany to
nrge the Legislature to either
repeal the law or exempt New
York City from its penalties
An Indians girl being, hurl

No Quo Warranto.
The question as to who consti
tute the legally elected Board
of Railroad Directors was not,
tried at the recent term of the
District Court, on account of
the want of requisite service.
The , writ of quo warranto or
the information, was allowed,
by Judge Guthrie. Writs were
issued, one directed to this, the
other to Vinton county. The
atter. remained in the
Clerk's offico until the 19th of
March, when the plaintiff de
posited money, which, with the.
writ, was sent to the Sheriff of
Vinton county.; The Sheriff ot,
that county served the writ
immediately, and returned it
on the : 25th. The ; District.
Court met on the 17tb, making
only 23 days' notice. The law;
requires 30 days. Hence the
case could not be tried. It
seems that the courts are but
ittie better posted on the
time ot service required in;
sucb cases, than tho lawyers,
for a', the last term of the Dis-.
trict Court the School Direct
tors of a school : district, in
Cheshire township,were ousted'
when only three days' service
had been' given. The District
Court, however, will meet in,
adjourned sesssion, in this city.
the 8th of July, when the case
will probably be set right and
taken under consideration..

A Little Deaf.
Old Uncle 8. was engaged'
to work inB. one winter by
Mr. U., who took him to board,
in his own family. Mr. S.' ar
rived Saturday evening, and
during the evenine Mrs. H..'
thinking to find where the old
gentleman went to church,
asked him the question.
"Mr. S., where do you attend

'What did you sayf
"Where do you attend.
church?"
MYou will have to speak a
trifle louder, as I'm a little
deaf."
So Mr. Un asks him again,
ia a louder voice, "Where do
you attend church?"
The old man hesitated, not
iking to be asked again, but,
after a few seconds, he said.
When do I change my thirtf'
Imagiue if you can the re
suit. Mrs. H. didn't find where
he attended church, after all.
but she was careful to speak
very loud when talking with,
the old man atter that.
A xouciilsa incident is told
in connection with the recent
Richmond bwitch disaster on
the Stonington road. The en'

death at his post ot duty, had
