The citizens of the doomed place did not
realize the imniacat danger u-utl it was
too late to escape. When safety by flight
was recognized as being (ut f the quelw,

not only moved them frioi tLeir on.-uda

and tops. A little later the lar-er houses
began to give way, and death by drowning
seemed in store for every person in the
place. With the yielding of the smaller
houses, several persons who had remained
in them were diowned, and when the resi

The following list of the drowned was
obtained from the gentlemen who came in

Otto Brown and two children: Hoamer

On receipt of this news the citizens Of
Beaumont immediately began preparntions
for the relief of the sufferers. The ! zaut

disposal, and a party of men have gonle to
procure a boat and start to the scene of thes
disaster. The damage to property is very
great. The wharf property of the town
was owned by New York capitalists, who
also own the adjoicingr lanus, and were
aiming to make Sabine Pr---un important

TEN O'CLOCK LINES.
An Indian Way of Fixing Boundaries of Grants
to White Men.
(Yrn the Omaha World.)
"That's a 10 o'clock line," said an old
gentleman putting his finger on a deli
cate line on one of the Grand Pacific
"What in creation is a 10 o'clock line?"
chorused two young companions, as they
traced the line in question from near the
mouth of the Miami River northwest
"It was the boundarv of an Indian
grant-a kind of naturaf way of survey
ing. I was down with a party once to
ratify a treaty by which a tribe agreed
to cede some territory to the whites. It
was a small matter, but it was a big oc
casion with the savages. Everything was
ready. The surveyor had his compass
and telescope and had mounted them on
a tripod. The head man of the tribe
came up, looked steadily at the instru
ment for a while, grunted and returned
to the circle around the council fire.
Not a word was spoken. Soon another
Indian got up, walked sedately to the in
strument, gravely examined, then grunt
ed and in silence returned to his place
by the fire. This example was followed
by half a dozen other bucks. Then they
held a short consultation, and the head
man arose and came over to the white
" 'That what Indian know,' he said,
drawing a small circle on the ground
with a stick; 'that what white man know,'
he continued, drawing a larger circle
around the first; 'this what nobody
know,' he concluded, pointing to all
without the last circle. 'White men
know that,' pointing to the instruments;
'Indian no know it. Indian knew the
sun. Him never cheat. Him always
same. Him throw shadow. Indian give
white man land one side shadow and
keap other side.' After a big pow-wow
it was decided that a line drawn in the
direction of the sun would cast a shadow
from an agreed point at 10 o'clock which
should be the boundary of the concession,
the white man taking the land on the
one side and the Indian keeping that on
the other. The other boundaries of the
concession were those of the original
territory of the tribe, supplemented by
water courses and other natural objects.
These lines were frequently used and
became known as '10 o'clock lines.'
Half a Dollar More.
For four nights the people of Bran
ford, Conn., enjoyed a real old-fashioned
"calithumpio," something very rare in
those parts. Thomas Gear, a widower,
and an old resident of the town, last
Wednesday evening married a widow
named McQueeny, and half an hour
after the ceremony a crowd of men and
boys surrounded the house and made as
much of a racket as possible. The newly
wedded couple, armed with cord wood,
charged upon them and drove them off.
The next night the serenaders returned
again, with increased numbers and more
drums, horns and tin pans. Gear and
his bride charged them again, but were
driven back. Then the groom offered
his visitors $2 to go away. They re
fused his offer, and then demanded half
a dollar more. The parties disagreed,
and for two hours night was made hide
ous again. The Calithumpians returned
on the following night, and the racket
was worse than ever. Gear stuck to his
offer, and the crowd would not lower
their demand a cent. Last night half
the town turned out to see the fun, and
the horn-blowers and drummers fairly
drove Gear wild, but he held out until
threats we re made to add tile town caln
non to the orchestra. Then he yielded
and gave the crowd 82.50. They kept
their bargain, got something to drink,
and Branford is once more at peace.
The .Author or --Curren~ shiali Not Rin::' T
There is perhaps not one person in a
hundred but is familiar with the poem
"Curfew Shall Not Ring To-Night."-and
yet there is not one of the hundred whlo
can tell the name of ihe author. The
poem was written nineteen years ago by
Rose Hartwick, a Michigan girl, but did
not find its way into print for three years
afterward. Tile author was not pleased
with her own production, and withheld
it from publication. It was her first
effort, and was laid away until one day.
in an extremity to fulfill an engagement
to furnish the D)etroit Commercial-Ad
vertiser with a certain amount of copy
each week, and not having anything on
hand when the demand was made for it,
she took the manuscript down from its
dusty shelf and sent it to the publisher
with instructions to put it in the waste
basket if hle didn't think it worth pub
lishing. It was published, however, and
in less than a week was copied into all
the leading dailies in the country. Miss
Hartwick has since married a Mr. Thorpt
and now lives at Grand Rapids. On a
recent visit to Chicago the Tribune said
of her: "She is bright and entertaining
in manner, and by no means shows her
five and thirty years, She has never
written any thing of note except her
'Curfew,' but derives quite an incoine
from her children's stories, which she is
writing with some success. "-St. Paul
