FIGHTING ON HORSEBACK.
A Desperate Encounter in Wdch Two Outlaws

horses. Their methods of steting were so
ably exceuted that the succ'deti its eluding

established statlio:ls, and would run their
horses from station to station during the
night until the. were safely out of reach in

Last Sunday the banditti learned tha:t the
officers were on their trail and they skipped
out in a north-westerly d i:ection through
the sandhilis and canvuns of Northwestern
Nebraska, with the Niieer; and their posse
in close pursuit. Late last night the oiliecrs

shelter with a settler who lives in a dug

by their horses in a stable. When sur
rounded they soon realized the situation
and determined to die rather than be taken
alive. They mounted their horses and
made a terrific rush for liberty, amid a
volley of bullets from the posse.
The thieves kept up a steady fire at the

him and he received several bullet wounds,
any one of which would prove fatal. Strohl
at full speed, plunged his horse into a rav

from under him and he gave iimse lf up.
One of the filicers ieceiv-d a tiesh wound

officers think they will apprehend soon.
Probable Reinstatement of a renitent Priest.
PlrosuCR(, Pa., October 2.-Rev.
Father Brennen, pastor of the principal
Catholic Church of Ne'o rh, N. J.. passed
through here tonight on 1 v. ay to Joliet,
Ills. in an interview he:,.d:

"Father McGlynn. TLe re; of ihe mat
ter is that Father 31cGlynn, iter. Dr. Bert
zel, Bishop Moore, of St. Augug:ine. Fla.,
and myself, were all classmatesia the
American College at Rome, and we have,
ever since his fall from grace, taken a deep
interest in him. We consulted with Arch
bishop Corrigan, and he sanctioned a course
we had determined upon 'pursuing. That
course was to send for zDr. McGlynn and
inform him that we had interceded for him
with Archbishop Corrigan, and that if he
wgs willing to ask forgiveness for his
offenses, there might be some hope of his
being restored to his church again. Dr.
McG.'ynn met us soon afterward, and ex
pressed himself as being willing to repent.
The case will have to be adjudged by higher
church authority than any in the country.
but I feel safe in saying that Dr. McGlynn
will shortly be taken back into the fold.
He will become a priest once more, but will
not be given a parish, of course."

State Arbitration Cormissioner F. F.
*Donovan has discovered a sculiar state of
things in the factory of the Pacitic Tuck
ing and Manufacturing Ctompany at 471
Eighteenth street, Brook;y:'. A man
named Fisher runs the establishm~ent. He
employs twenty girls who wot k at irim
muing ladies' garments. The~ girls had been
getting $5 a wee~k. They regaurded thi- in
suflicient and asked for an increase of $1 a
week each. Fisher was compel<:d to grant
this, but he did not propose to keep up the
payment very long, ie began by dis
charging the girls and tiring inexperienced
help in their places. The girls have an
*organization, and they went on a strike.
Commissioner Donovan tried to arbitrate,
and failed, as neither side would concede
anything. .He will report the matter to
the Commission. The girls claim, in addi
tion to the small pay they receive, bad
treatment in other ways. A gas engine is
used, and they allege that the air is very
often T-oisonous with gras. A girl nmunedl
Gertie died not long ago, and it is thought
the bad air hastened her death. Another
grievance was that they were allowed only
half an hour at noon. The girls claim
that Fisher makes about $40O a week from
the labor of each girl.-e' Er'k ~Sar'.

HISTORY OF TUH BUSTLE.
The Impetus Which Has Borne It Through
successive stages of rth-erly
Now, we don't mean the great busi
ness bustle which belongs to the early
fall and winter trade, nor the great
bustle of the humming and whirling
marts of manufacturing energy. We
mean the great bustle of modern fash
Nothing has outstripped the bustle in
its gig-ntic stride for prodigious excel
lence.' It is paradoxical that this "out
ward form" of fashion, which has never
been literally in front, has still left all
mo'listic rivals behind.
We can recall when this startlingly
reproductive fruit received the distinct
impetus which has borne it through
successive stages to the present extraor
dinrv condition of development. The
bustle got a wondrous impetus from an
accident and alarm of the war. We
have intently observed its onward
march toward immensity for more than
twenty years; and, now that it has
,rown iar;e enough to comprehend this
commentnry, we pay to its historic
origin our respectful compliments.
The bustle of the war period in the
south was cut crescent-shaped, was
hand-sewed, and was then padded
through an open end with cotton or
sawdust. It was a modest, unobtrusive
bustle in its manners and when proper
ly adjusted was quite invisible to the
wearer and nearly so to the world.
Like certain lunar eclipses, it could be
viewed only from a very limited area.
When Sherman's Christian battalions
were beaten through the backways of
Georgia and the Carolinas it w s
deemed, for prudential reasons, best
deposit domestic treasure, such as
money and valuables, where they would
not confront these patriots. It was not
at first suspected that the soldiers would
appropriate these effects, but it was
feared that the gilt bric-a-brac, and
brooch, and bracelet jewelry might at
tract their admiration and impede their
march by tempting them to stop and
examine the precious wares.
When brought into full relief by pow
criul field lenses it was at last seen that
Sherman's Christian battalions were an
army of incontinent kleptomaniacs,
and'that new ingenuities would be in
constant need to escape their keen and
acute methods of detecting the secret
places of hidden treasures.
Biding places were numerous in
truth, but their instincts for stealage
were quite as diverse and quite as
At this crisis the bustle played a his.
It became a safe-despoiit for imperil
ed jewelry possessions.
Both cotton and sawdust bustles were
now brought into a new use. They
were ripped and rid of their waste,
and then were rewadded, but this time
with small wares and valued gems.
Two abnormal effects followed, the first
being a disturbance of the symmetry
and gravity of the former bustle, the
second being a marked increase in its
uroportions. This made it the more
observable, and this, too, led to its
eventual detection by certian of the sol
diers, which discovery culminated in
the theft of many bustles,gtogether [with
their precious and highly-prized con
What was next to do?
Shrewd and resourceful maidens soon
fell upon another device. There was
continual peril of loss while the bustles
were worn in their allotted places upon
the person, but there was hope of escape
for themn if they could be successfully
ecucealed elsewhere. But where, ob
where? In the house? No! for Sher
man eutered with lurid fagots. In the
wvoods' No! for his marauders roosted
upou the boughs.
So the noble women resolved to bury
their trinkets in the fields. The broad
acres thus became the depository of
their charms and treasures and the
carth covered up their-bustles.
See yonder dune where the tasseled
stlk is nodding to the breeze and you
couli hear the rustle of the corn-blade?
Well, once von could hear the rustle of
the bustle. 'See those tiny hills whence
the hopeful germ of the happy potato is
looking toward the sun? Well, those
little hills were once sown broadcast
with those beautiful suggestions of
dromedarial architecture kniown in the
parlance of worldly fashion ae-bus
What became of them?
We can not answer for them all.
Nor can we repress the thought that
had they all taken root and ripened and
risen in luxuriant loveliness what a
harvest of bustles there would have
have been! But, like other tender and
precarious vegetation, bustles had to
take their chances-and more, too.,
Some of them, as before, fell to the
cupidity of Sherman's Christian sol
diers, who relentlessly uprooted them;
other, after the passage of military
peril, were resurrected to be trasns
planted elsewhere, and others still, be
ing unmarked, were never found by
those who had hastily and hopefully en
But a great an unexpected day had
dawned for bustles. Ofthe number
that were left in the earth a vast pro
portion of those which had been filled
with sawdust in time took root, and ex
uberantly blossomed and flourished.
Those which had contained cotton,
however, wen~t generally to seed.
We would say here that from this
startling botanic phenomenon and the
imressive date and situation we have
been enabled to locate unmistakably
the rise and progress of the American
bustle; and we been convinced, too,
that nothing short of the most pertina
cous and painstaking care and watch
fulness could have brought this indis
pensale appurtenance of modern fe
male beauty to ita present extraordi
nary size, vigor, and variety.
We have not space to fully present
our deductions from the important cir
cumstances that surround the bustle or
from the beautiful physiological female
creations that stand immediately in
front of it. We can not contrast the
early amd almost unnoticeable product
we saw platnted in the past with the
prodgius and illimitable fruit of our
d:'s without the encroachment of won
dei- upon our thoughts and sublime and
poetic indency toward blank verse.
If we view the matter in a practical
and dispassionate vein, we are forced
to the conviction t at hustles make a
better cron for orolitable or ornamental
farming than breadstutrs. We believe
there is no known abridgement to its

The Bee's Sting a Uaal Tool.
A new champion has arisen to defend
the honey bee from the obloquy under
which it has always rested. Mr. Wm.
F. Clarke, of Canada, claims to have
discovered, from repeated observations,
that the most important function of the
bee's sting is not stinging. In a recent
article he says:
My observations and reflections have
convinced me that the most important
office of the bee sting is that which is
performed in doing the artistic cell
work, capping the comb, and infusing
the formic acid by means of which
honey receives its keeping qualities. A.i
I said at Detroit, the sting is really a
skillfully contrived little trowel, whit
which the bee finishes off and caps the
cells when they are filled brimful of
honey. This explains why honey ex
tracted before it is capped over does not
keep well. The formic acid has not
been injected into it. This is done in
the very act of putting the last touches
on the cell work. As the little pliant
trowel is worked to and fro with such
dexterity, the darts, of which there are
two, pierce the plastic cell surface and
leave the nectar beneath its tiny drons
of the fluid which makes it keep weil.
This is the "art preservative" of honey.
A most wonderful provision of nature,
truly! Herein we see that the sting and
the poison bag, with which so many of
us would like to dispense, are essential
to the storage of our coveted product,
and that without them the beautiful
comb honey of commerce would be a
If these things are so, how mistaken
those people are who suppose that a bee
is, like the Prince of Evil, always going
about prowling in search of a victim.
The fact is that the bee atte-.ds to its
own business very diligently, and has
no time to waste in unnecessary quar
rels. A bee is like a farmer working
with a fork in his hay field. le is fully
occupied, and very busy. if molested
or meddled with, he will be very apt to
defend himself with the implement he
is working with. This is what the bee
does; and man, by means of his knowl
edge of the nature and habits of this
wondrous littlo insect, is enabled, in
most cases, to ward off or evade attack.
It is proof of their natural quietness,
industry, and peaceableness that so
many thousands of them will go through
a summer of ceaseless activity close. to
your dwelling house, and perhaps not
half a dozen stings be indlicted during
a whole season.

CmV ..", -U.. Oct. 25.--The jcaiousihs
wiich have cexs:cd betwcea Governor
l'on:kie(r -ad Senator Sherman, growing
out of the espirations of each to a place on
the National Republican ticket, bid fair
now to break out in open hostility.
Notling but policy on the part of each
will prevent it. Each is conscious of the
other's power to crush the hopes of both,
if he so desires, and each knows how des
perate the other is. The adoption of the
resolution endorsing Mr. Sherman as Ohio's
choice for the Presidency, which was dole
by the Republicta State Convention at
Toledo, and to which the Foraker men
racefully submitted, instead of ending a
quurrel etwen party leaders, was really
the entering wedge which threatens to
tadiy split the Republican forces in this
Tlii election of Foraker and the loss to
the Repaiicans of the State Legislature
would ilh Mr. Foraker of Mr. Sherman as
a rival far a place on the national ticket.
That is easy to see. It would give the
young Governor special prominence and
leprivt; the Senator of that lever he relies
so much upon to raise himself into notice
-a legi-lative resolution from his own
State. The State Committee is a Foraker
committee decidedly. Its chairman is the
Governor's sppointce as Railroad Commis
stoner, and its chief secretary his appointee
as State Librarian. It is natural, there
fore, that this committee should manage
things in the intere:t of Mr. Foraker.
In his speech at Belfontaine last week
Senator Sherman laid special emphasis on
the statement that ihe main object in this
campaign was the election of a R-epublican
General Assembly. This ignoring of Mr.
Foralker resulted in a conclave here of
iea ing Foraker and Sherman men, the re
sult or which seems to be that the State
Republican Cgmnittee is paying a little
more attention to the General Assembly
elections and devoting its time less exclu
sively to the election of Mr. Foraker.

Onie Lived, the Otheri Died.
A woman formerly our slave is now
our cook. About eighteen months ago
she became sickly and had a cough and
was conined to bed, and it was thought
tat she ha~d consumption. The treat
ment by physicians failed to give relief.
In D~ecember, I884, a node or knot the
size of a goose egg formed just above
the pit of the stomach, which, when
lanced, diseharged matter for eight or
nine months. One of these also fonr~ed
under her arm, and three on her back,
which discharged matter for a consider
able timc. For six months of this time
she coitined to the. htouse, and most of
the time in bed. The streh often re
fused food, by rejee+5g what she had
eaten. She used a great deal of medi
cine, but failed to be cured. I bought
one bottle of your 13. B. B. (made in
Atlanta, Ga.) and gave it to her and she
commenced to improve. I then bought
and~ave her three bottles more, and she
contmnued to improve, and in two
mnths' time her cough had ceased, her
constitution strengthened, appetite and
digestion good, all discharges ceased,
noes or knots uisappeared and she went
to work apparently healthy and fattened
This woman had a married sister of
near the same age who was affectd in
precisely the same way and about the
same time. 'The had nodes or knots on
pit of her stomach, back, etc. She did
not take any B. B. B. and the node on
her stomach ate through to the cavity.
She continued on the decline and wasted
away, and finally died.
These were two terriblcecases of blood
poison-ono used B. B. B. and wasl
speedily cured-4he other did not use it
and died. It is mest assuredly a most
wonderful blood pi: rifler. I refer to
merchants of this town. Yours truly,
