WILD LIFE IN THE WEST.
Stories about Trappers.
The following stories about trappers in
tbe Far West are told by a writer in All the
' Year Kouna:
"I fonnd in Puget Sound a last connect
ing link between his day and ours, in the
person of an old chie- What thoughts
uiuBt have been runniDg through the mind
of that old man as he glanced over the
- wonderful story of the seventy years which
, had come and gone since John Vancouver
ailed with his stately 6hip up Pnget
Sound, I know not; lor the leathern conn
tenances of the Indians, like dead men,
. tell no tales. Tbe medals that Lewis and
Clarke distributed among tbe Indians at
the mouth of the Columbia river could still
be sometimes seen i tb Chinook lodges,
thouch that trib had long disappeared,
wi:h all the Columbia and Willamette
r tribes, from their old homes.
Old Astoria voyagers I sometimes came
r across. . Toe sou ol tu at Fierre Uonon,
whose escape with Lis heroic Indian moth
er, after the murder ot his lather, is so
graphically portrayed by Irving, was my
fellow-traveler for weeks together before I
- knew how historically interesting he was;
and the crrandson of one-eved (Joncomoly,

whose daughter to the factor of Astor is so

many, a shadowy absti action, invented by
the novelist, on which to hang many a
auaint tale of love and war; but was a
hearty, genial veteran, no way backward to
fight his battles over again 'when he got a
"Some of the trappers whom I
knew are old men, and it has been my lot
to know, among others, such men as the
celebrated Kit Carson, Jim Baker, Jim
Bridger and ethers. Such men were al
most universally Americans; and though
thev were not at all inimical to the female
Indian, yet they invariably entertained im
placable feud against some particular tribe.
They had also their favorite tribe, against
whom it was rank sedition to say a single
word. 'Crows kin be trusted, an old fel
low would say round the camp, his mouth
filled wif.h tobacco; 'bnaEes am t no such
1 "count; tut if ye wantu to get the meanest
pizen-bad lot of Injuns, just trap a fall
down to the Washoe country, just'' And
afterward you would hear some other man
nive exactly an opposite opinion. On closer
11 observation yon would generally find that
the landed tribe was the one whom he had
lived longest among, to which his sojiaw
belonged, of which was the easiest to strike
a bargain with; for, generally epeaking,
these mountain men are a very unreason
able set when speaking on Indian matters.
"Old 'IVpieg' Smith was 60 called,
to distinguish him from the numerous
Smiths of the Weht, on account of a wood
en leg, which he had worn ever since any
body remembered him. Old Tegleg's day
was over before -1 knew him, and all I re
of him was a garrulous old fellow
in San Francisco, no way backward to iake
a drink when Le found any one willies to
invite him. His adventures formed the
subject matter of a book published some
years ago; and it I recollect rightly, an ar
ticle appeared in one of the English maga
zines, about tbe same period. On one oc
casion old Pegieg came down to a frontier
brandy port, and there in a few weeks not
only epent all the earnings of the past sea
son, but had also run so far in debt that his
fine white horsa, which bad been his com
panion for years, Was placed in pawn in
the trader's siables. It was. in vain that
Smith begged itp release. Tleading prov
ing vain, Pegieg tried to get possession ot
the stable-key, bnfc that attempt also proved
futile, until at Lut, all pacific methods fail
ing, he resorted, as a last expedient, to
force. Waiting nntil the trader was asleep,
he bopped to the stable door, applied his
loaded rifle to the key-hole, and in a crack
blew the lock oft In another crack the
trader, aroused by the noise, was on the
ground; but only just in time to see his
debtor careering joyously, on the back of
the whiie horse, over the prairie, waving
his cap, and galloping at each a rate as to
put pursuit out t.l the question.
'A remarkable man, but one much less
known, was Albert PfeifFer. Like Carson,
he was in the irregular Mexican cavalry;
indeed, he was lieutenant colonel of the
same regiment He was a man of a very
singular appearance. His red beard grew
in patches, the intervening space appear
ing burned and discolored. This was owing
to his having been poisoned by some of
the Indians' arrow-poisons years before.
He wore blue goggles to shield his weak
eyes; yet, though they were weak, they
were bright, clear and quick. His was al
most ghastily in its signs of suffering, and
he walked stiff, with a cane, being rcarred
with nearly twenty wounds, carrying in his
body some Indian souvenirs of bullets, and
bearing two frightful marks where an arrow
had pierced directly through his body, just
below the heart. A native of Frissland, he
came to the United States some 30 years
ago, and during all that time served as an
Indian pacificdtor.Sghter and trapper, oras
a guide to passes in the mountains known
only to himself and the Indians. An ac
quaintance of mine used to r late an anec
dote of Pfeiffer. They had started on a
tour together, and as tliey rode along, 'the
colonel' gave him various directions how to
behave in case they were attacked by In
dians; finishing by saying, in his broken
English: 'And now, don'torget, if me be
wounded, you kill me ot once, lor I will not
fall alive into dere infernoZ hands; dey tor
fare one horrt&ly. And if you be wounded,
I kill vou, you see. Don't faill
"I write of Albert Pfeiffer as he was four
years ago. For all I know to the contrary
he is stall living; one of the last and the
bravest of the mountain men.
"Another specimen of the mountain man
wasan old fellow whom I may call Seth
r e iilifseth was ratheran intelligent man,
and during our rambles I used to be amused
to hear his opinion on men and things, all
of which he rjrononneed with the utmost
confidence, though his ducation as far as
book learning was concerned) was limited,
and his range of observation equally so.
Still, like western folks, he looked upon
himself as particular smart,' and a right

Girls of the Period in Philadelphia. Iron Ship-Building in the United States.
From the Iron and Steel Bulletin.
It is conceded Wy the principal

and that hereaittr iron will be u-t d almost
exclusively in the construciiuii c f s'eameiu
and sailmor vessels, tiarucuiariy the se em
ployed in ocean tr.insit. At te present
time, owing to various causes iron snip
building is confined to tue Clyde, lyue
and Mersey, England, aad the business is
now exceedingly active at those places,
thousands of workmen being fully employ
ed in constructing vessels lor all parts ot
the world. The reports that reach us of
the activity of sevral branchr s ot the iron
business in Eaglaud, caused by the heavy
demand for plates, angle-iron, ic, ou tue
part of ship builders, should lead us to do
all in our power to develop that branch of
business within our own tt-rritcry. There is
no part of the world that promises better fa
cilities for the construction of vessels of all
kinds, iron, wooden and composite, than
the vast stretch of coast lying between Nor
folk, -Va., and Maine. Timber in vabt
Quantities, and of the bst qualities is
lound here, while good iron can be made
ad libitum. American shipbuilders, we pre
sume, without an exception will admit that
our iron is vastly superior to jr-gnsn iron
for their purpose, while the lar-seeiiig
among them agree that a reduction of the
duty on iron will by no means result to
their advantage. A policy that will cripple
or close the world upon which they must
rely lor their materials, can only result to
their disadvantage. Nevertheless it seems
absolutely accessary that the Government
should come at once to the aid of our ship
builders, in order that the . business may
not be driven irrevocably from our bhore.
It would appear that the necessary aid
need be extended for a few years only.
While various opinions exist as to the best
means for aiding this important interest,
perhaps the least objectionable and most
efficient would be a bounty or drawback,
based upon tonnage, in the case ol all ves
sels built here of American material.
Washington thus discourses about dinners
and social life at the national capital:
"I can fancy that a man may live here
(Washington) a luxurious and in'.ellectnid
life on ten thousand dollars a year. He
could bring about him the elite of society ;
foreign and domestic talent, and the clever

no matter what amount of knowledge may

Heating Railroad Cars by Electricity

Th Wflliinrrton Republican says: "Of

sent through these heaters it is obstructed
by the intervening non conductors, of
small diameter, and the evolution of heat
is the result;. and cfter the chain has be

metallic plate. '

Billiards in England—The Largest Break
The Bucks (Eugland) Herald of March 1
says: On Friday eveiiing the inhabitants of
Ayieruryund its neij hboihood were ena
bled to witness some ot the most brilliant
playing at this fashionable game that has
ever been displayed. The occasion was a
grand match between W. Cook, the cham
pion of England, and W. Dufton,instruetor
to the Prince of Wales, and took p'ace in
the Corn Exchange, which was fitted es
pecially for the occasion. The seats were
amphitbeatricaily arranged, which enabled
ail present to witness the play advanta
geously. The game took place on a new
table made by Messrs. Burroughs & Watts..
The pockets were 3i inches, the bulls 2 1-6
inchts, and the spot was 12J inches lrom
tho top cushion. There tv-re about two
hundred present to witness the entertain
ment. The match was remarkable for the
wonderful break made by Cook, viz., 417,
which is the largest ever made, and this
splendid score included 137 of his favorite
roots, which he made very quickly and
with such certainty that it became almost
monotonous to the unprofessional eye. The
champion was recorded the winner by the
large majority of 540, in an unfinished
break. The champion resumed his play
and made fo;ty-two more spots, but in a;
tempting another left the ball lingering on
the edge of the pocket -
This last great break was made thus: A
losing hazard off the red, followed by "pot
ting" the red, making six and giving him
his pet stroke, from which he played the
unprecedented number of 137 spots, mak
ing it the largest break on record, viz., 417.
Both players were loudly cheered.
Xte-eania occupied exactly one hour and
forty minutes, which of itself will speak
for the fast play of the champion.
A Young Lady's Hair Torn Out.
From the Worcester Spy.
A young lady by the name of Williams,
employed in the hoop skirt factory of D.
H Fanning, met with an accident on Fri
day, by which she - lost hej. front hir, and
was injured about the head.' She was down
upon the floor, engaged in cleaning up
around a revolving shaft which runs under
a table or bench, and a lew hairs on the
front of her head got eutaigled and wound
up with the shaft without her knowledge,
until so muck of it had caught tuat she
could not free herself. Her cries brought
the other girls of the room to her aid, and
while some of them were engaged in try
ing to throw off the belt that turned tha
shaft, one, with quick thought as to what
mnst be done, seized a knife and cut off
the bair before it had torn the poor girl's
scalp off though it had raised it up in an
nly manner, and drawn her head so near
that a set-screw struck her on the face at
each revolution and cut a bad gash. She
was taken to her home on JSouthbriilge
street aud medical aid procured.

Evidences of the Christian lleligion is one
of the ablest treatises which hue appeared
on that sutj.-ct, and his book on the Doc
trine of Contracts is at least creditable to
hid s ill as a rer.soucr, and to the value
placed by him on a scrupulous and high
toned integrity in matters of trade. He
was one of our best prose writers, and, if
he had addicted, hiaself more sedulously
to lit;rary pursuits, would have won
for himself a . distinguibhed name
in the lifvrp.tnro cf hi time. Although
taking a decided part in politics, and sev
eral times a mt mber of Congress and the
state Se-nate, he never stooped to any of the
arts by whie-h niouina'ions are obtained
and elections carried. What public trust
was given him wiis simply a tribute to his
acknowledged merit. Although his man
ners were quite undemonstrative, his per
sonal attachments were shown to be strong
by tho services which he quietly and
silently rendered to his friends. He was
sincere and outspoken iu his opinions, and
never abstained lrom their full expression
by any fear of unpopularity. For more
than half a century he has been one of the
ornaments of the public aud social life of
New York, and we cannot but feel that
notwithstanding the great age to which his
life was prolonged, with some infirmities
iu its latter stage, his removal is a loss not

How Much Should Mothers be Doctors!
- The old adage, "every man to his trade,"
ba- a sharp value and something of the old
Anglo-S.ixon ring. But in the sub-division
cf 1 ibor, incident to civilization and
refinement, every mother btcomes a nurse.
If not always practically, yet always theo
retically, and though in some cases 6he
may delegate the office to her husband, yet
the supreme authority vests in her, and in
an mer?ency "the crptain takes the
helm." If the mother is always nurse, she
is also always more or less the doctor.
She decides whether the little one is 6ick,
and at the moment prescribes rest and ab
stinence, "enstor-oil and quietude," or her
hot tea, or other iavorito mixture. Usually
the mother is successful. Her intuitism,
keen perception and ready adaptation of
meaus to ends, reneler her generally a safe
adviser in these matters. Sometimes she
is at fault, and her liability to error is pre
cisely in the ratio of her want of informa
tion. Given a fair amount of knowledge,
which many women attain by sheer expe
rience a modicum of good common sense,
and a little magnzine ot 6imple curatives
and her success in keeping the little ones
well almost surpasses comprehension.
Tbe question is not shall mothers pre
scribe for their children. This they have
done, and always will do. The only ques
tion is shall th-y do it intelligently, and
with remedies that only cure and cannot
harm, or ignoraLtly and oftentimes with
very crude and un.-afo means

Committee, aud Board of Public Works was
held, to investigate the cause of the accident,
at which meeting Mr. Rose, the architect,
assured the meeting that the roof of th
other (east) wing was perfectly safe. Bnt at
half-past eleven that night the east roof fell
in with a crash that was heard half a mile,
with a rumbling sound liks thunder. A com
mittee of investigation has been appointed to
examine aud report on the matter, and,
strange to say, four of this committee are
architectswho have professionally eudortfd
the work as safe alter examination, and some
of these spoke contemptuously of inJi -idua's

building was unsafe. One of t hese, after cer
tifying tothe supervising architect that there
we're "no indications of instability in any part
of th structure" added: "Trustinsr that

FARMING—HOW TO INSURE GOOD CROPS.
As the season of seeding approaches the
moit important question with farmers, is,
how to make thpir fields produce the bpfc
crops at the least exoense. Tho diminishing
yield per I 're of cereals, roots and grasses,
eTnse-qnnt on the exhauetion of the soil by
contiTiued cropping, has led all intelligent
farmers to the conviction that the onlv wav to
restore their farms to thir original fertility
is to return to them, in some shape, tho elts
menU of which they have been deprived.
Every crop of wheat or other grain., or
-rape taken from the soil dimininbes its
orodutiveness becanse it takes from it por-
ions of those elements essential to tho
rowth and m-itunty of perfect crop And
f this process is continued long eiiough, the

to make or keep the soil fertile is to return to
