mind went back sixyears. 1 knew John
Uritsben, and I also knew his twin
brother Joseph. I wassjfaniiliur with
tho details of the action that placed
John Brisben in a felon's cell, and now
when tho sad affair is brought back to
mind so vividly I must write it out, for
nover before have 1 met, in prose or
poetry, in real life or iu romance, a
eroater hero than plain, matter-of-fact
The Brisbens catue of good stock. I
think tho great-grandfather of my hero
emigrated to Kentucky when Kenton's
Station, between the present City of
Maysvillo and the historic, old Town of
Washington, was the principal Fettle
mcnt on the "dark ami bloody ground."
He came from 1'pper Pennsylvania and
locntod about five miles from the Ohio
river, on Limestone Creek. lie was an
industrious, strong-limbed, lion-hearted
old fellow, and in a few years his sur
roundings were of the most comfortable
description. One of his sons, Kdwin
Rrisben, once represented Kentucky in
the Federal Congress. I think he was
the grandfather of John and Joseph
Brisben. Their father's name was Sam
rjel, and ho died whon they were little
children, leaving his widow an excellent
bluo-graas farm awl a. snug little fortune
in blocks, bonds aud mortgage. , Tho
widow remained a widow until her
death. Mrs. s Samuel Brisl n was a
good woman. aud who idolized her twin
boy. Liko most twins, the brothers
resembled each otherln a striking man
ner, and even intimate acquaintances
could not tell them HparU But although
tho physical resemblance was ao strong
there was great dissimilarity iu the dis
positions of the twins. Joseph Brisben
was surlv and morose, sometimes cun
ning ami revengeful. He was withal &
druamer and an enthusiast; a man well
learned in books, a brilliant, frothy
talker when he chose to be sociable
(which waeMom), a splendid horse
man, and a most excellent shot. John
Brisbeu, on the contrary, was cheerful
and bright, honorable and forgiving.
Ho was a man of high moral principle,
Intensely tiraetical and methodical,
cared little for books, and, although ho
said but little, was a splendid com
panion, lie was a poor horseman, and
i don't think he ever shot a gun in his
life. Ho saw nothing of tho poetry of
life, tind as for sport, ho enjoyed him-
olf only when hard at work, lie loved

mother died very suddenly, Joseph
made a great pretense of grief, and was
so hysterical at the gravu that he had to

John, on tho contrary, never demou

Ids cusiomai'v coolness. Ho n:iid but
little, and shed no tears.
Tho properly left to tho boys was con
siderable. The day they were '1 years

So this sort of 11 division was made.
John continued on at the homestead,
working in his plain, methodical way,
and slowly adding to his sliaro of tho
money what he could ralso out of the
profits of tho farm. Joseph, with his
newly-acipilred wealth, set up an es

prodigality and before ho knew it, ho
was a beggar. In tho meantime John's
$25,000 bad doubled itself, One day
Joseph camo to him with a full confes
ion of his pecuniary troubles:
"Jack,", ho said, "I am not only a
beggar, but I an. heavily in debt, llelo

settle down anubegin lifo in soberonru

can soon make money enough to repay
you. I havo sown my wild oats, and
with a littlo help I can soon recover
all ' that 4 havo squandered so foolish
ly." For an answer John Brisben placed
his namo to an order for tho $2o,0(t() ho
bad earned so laboriously.
"Will that bo onough, Jodie P" ho ask
ed, "booause I have us much more,
which you can havo if it is necessary."
"This will bo sufficient, old fellow,"
was the reply. "In two years 1 will pay
Ho went back to town, drew his
money, paid bis debts, sold some of his
horses and discharged several of his
servants. Twonty thousand dollars was
left out of tho loan, lie invested this
in business, aud for a while seemed to
have really reformed. John was en
couraged to say:
"Jodie will come out all right. Ho
is smarter than 1, and in live years will
bo worth more money than I could
make in a life-timo."
In less than three years Joseph Bris
bon's affairs were in tho hands of his
creditors, and a sheriff's oiliccr closed
out his business. Again he turned to
his brother for help and sympathy.
"I own that 1 managed a trille care
lessly," lie said by way of explanation.
"Experience is a dear teacher, urn! tho
lesson I havo learned I shall never for
get. If you come to my assistance now
I can soon recover myself."
Once more John Brisben placed his
name to a check payable to the order of
nis brother, and Joseph entered into
business again. In two years he was a
"I shall ncVer succeed in business,
Jack," he said. "Help mo out of this
trouble and I will live with you on the
farm. 1 shall succeed as a fanner."
It took all of John Brisben's hoard to
pay bis brother's debts, but ho made
no complaint, uttered no reproach. Ho
"I hnl glad you are coming back to
the farm, Jodie. You need do no
work, and we will be very happy to
gether." So Joseph took up his residence at
tho arnt, and remembering his brother's
words, devoted his time principally to
hunting, fishing and riding about tho
country. In the meantime John Bris
ben hall fallen in love, and tho daugh
ter of a neighboring fanner, Compton
by name,' was lu's promised wife. Be
ing a man of strict honor himself and
having full confidence in his brother, he
did not object when Joseph began to
pay his atlianced very marked attention.
"I am glad he likes her," he thought.
"I am so busy on the farm that I havo
littlo time for pleasure, and Alice is so
fond of amusement"
One night Joseph came to him just as
tho shailows of evening were beginning
to fall. Thero was a triumphant ring
in his voice when he spoke.
"Jack, old boy," he said, holding out
his band, "congratulate me. I think
that from to-day I can date tho begin
ning of a new life Alice Compton has
promised to be my wife."
He was too much cngrossod with his
now happiness to see the effect of this
announcement as portrayed on Joint's
face.. He did not notice how the strong
man's hand trombled in his own.
"Is this true?" faltered John at last.
"Whv, of course it is. Are you not
glad. We love each other and shall be
"'We love each other, and shall lie
very happy!' " repeated John mechan
ically, anil all tho sunshine of his life
sunk behindjthe heavy clouds of despair.
"Yes, Jodie, I am glad, and 1 wish you
long years of happiness."
He turned away aud staggered, rather
than walked, to his own room. He did
not stir all night. Once a deep, sob
bing groan struggled to his lips, and
the moonbeams struggling through the
window fell full upon Tiis face, and sur
prised two great tears stealing down
his pale chocks. Ho brushed away this
evidence of weakness and sorrow, and

Ten years passed awav. and John
Brisben, an old man before his time,
still worked from dawn till dark that
his brother might play the gentleman

Joseph lirishon, and the money for
which it called was unhesitatingly paid
over to him. Ho was under the in

stakes, which was in progress. The
check was for $2,000, I think. Before

"You!" cried tho astounded magis

"Nothing is impossible in these days,"
said the white-haired old man sternly.
"I alone am guilty. My brother is in

issued a warrant for his arrest, ami at
the samo time wrote an order to tho jail

"My constable will be in soon," said
tho magistrate, but tho old hero picked
up both tho papers.
"I will not trouble him," he said; "I
will execute both papers."
And ho did. Handing the jailer both
papers, he explained their meaning thus:

Accordingly Joseph Brisben was re
leased and returned to tho farm. John
remained at tho jail a prisoner. When
the extraordinary affair became known,
several prominent citizens offered to go
on the accused man's bond, but ho
would not accept their kind offices. At
the trial he plead guilty ' and was sen
tenced to fifteen years' imprisonment at
hard labor in tho penitentiary. Joseph
came to see him before he was removed
to Frankfort, but their interview was a
Joseph Brisben remained at the farm,
but ho was a changed man. From tho
day of his release from jail down to the
time of his death, he was never known
to touch a card, and a drop of liquor
never passed his lips. Last April ho
died, and his confession duly sworn to
before a justice of the peace, was made
public after his burial. In substance it
was this: That he was guilty of tho for
gery for which bis heroic brother was
suffering a long imprisonment.
It was my brothers wish, not mine,"
reads the document. "He insisted that
ho who had no ties of blood rr marri.igo
could better suffer the punishment and

Two young ladies of Terro Haute,

car was crowded with passengers. At
a small station a woman in showy attire
entered and demanded a whole section.
It was not to bo had. and the conduc

seemed to Vie impressed with ttie new

who nro interested in either mining, ayri

that auriculture in New Mexico would not
pay. This is an unfortunate error. At tho
exposition will bo teen nimplcs of all soils

those of prolific Kansas. With irrigation
tho soil of the Territory csn be mado to
yield immensely, and there is no pursuit
more remunerative than that ot larming.
Agricultural products, of all kinds, bring
high prices upon a ready market, always
accibsiblo in the growing mining towns,
and thoenst of raising is comparatively
small. As a cattle aud sheep country, too,
New Mexico, cannot be surpassed. Her
valleys and mesas afford fine grazing
grounds for countless herds. A3 the cele
bration at Santa Fo will be tho means of

Besides the practical, tho Tortio-Millenial

and romantic. Forjnstauce, three days
tho ISth, 19th, aud 20th of July will bo
devoted to the presentation of historic
scenes. These will represent the period
which bus transpired since the settlement
of the city, each day to represent a century
of history Hud progress. The three civili
zations will also be represented that
which exihted at tho time of tho coming of
(he conquerors, that which tho Spaniards
brought with them aud that which followed
the American occupation of 1840. These
representations will be illuotrated by caval
cades in costume, indicative of tho several
distinctive expeditions into New Mexico
and the surrounding territory. There will
also lie numerous tableaux, the whole com
bining to make one of the most novel and
interesting exhibitions ever witnessed in
this country. There will, in addition, be
various ludiau gatuee, inees and flant.ce by
the Pueblos, descendants of the ancient in
habitants of the Territory, ambuscades and
sham tights by tho Zunis, with exhibitions
of their peculiar rites and ceremonies, one
of which will be a primitive dance repre
senting the gods and heroes of their folk
lore mythology; native Mexican games,
dances and juggling; oiiginal Aztec dances,
in which both Mexicans and Indians will
take part; various Mexican sports aud the
grsinj fandango; war and other peculiar
dances by the Mcsculcro and
