THE SAND OF AN OLD TIMER.
rlal Rraniy That Won a Hare Tribnt.
From a Rand of Apache.
A company of ranchmen sat about the
railroad station in Pomona the other aft.
ernoon waiting for the belated overland
train for Los Angeles. Every man in
the party knew the others, and there be
ing an hour or two to wait story telling
of the early days on the border and in
Arizona aud California came natural.
Stories of old times, when Indians ware
bad and tlie white pioneers knew what
bra-cry meant, were related. John Wil
son cf El Monte told the uiott absorbing
story of the honr:
"Talk abnnt sand in a man, gentle
men! I am telling yon that it takes sand
of the genuine article in any man to try
and stand off single handed 40 or 50
Apai:hes when he knows just how the
scrap will end, and that the end will lie
his own death. But that was just the
kind of sand that was in Felix Knox
when ho was killed by the Apaches.
You sec Knox was an all round gambler,
ench as tho tenderfoot from the east
scorns so much and knows so little
about, but he had a heart in him bigger
than any tenderfoot's head. Well, it
was in the spring of 1879 Knox, with his
wiie anu Laby and a Mexican driver,
was coming from Silver City to Clifton,
down inAi-icona. They got to York's
ranch, which is on the Gila river, about
30 miles from Clifton, all right, but
were told there that signs of Apaches
had been seen, and that they had better
go in camp there for a few days, but
Knox who had fought the Attaches
dozens of times and didn't know what
fear was said he wanted to make Clif
ton that day, Indiuns or no Indians.
"Well, the Knoxes drove on. When
they wero about two miles from York's
ranch, sure enough a big buck Indian
came from behind a low, round top
mesa. Kuox kntw there were plenty
more of the red devils hid there and
that it meant a fight to death for him.
He was as cool as a cucumber. lie
jumped out of the wagon, fijled his pock
ets with two 1hxcs of cartridges, and
then kissed his wife and baby for the
last time, but saying that he would have
the redskins rfun-ted in a few minutes.
He ordered the Mexican driver to lash
tiie team for all he was worth and to
drive back to York's ranch ns fast as the
horses could jump. Then Knox waved
his hand to his wife and said he was co-
ing to stand off a few Apaches, although
he was sure there was a big bund of
them. As the team and wagon flew back
to tho ranch Knox, riflo in hand, started
toward tho hill for his last fight. Ho
turned once aud waved his sombrero to
his wifo and child and then strode on to
his certain death.
"The Apaches a second later rushed
ont from behind tho hill where they
were secreted. Knox faced his foes, and
standing stock still pumped lead at
them until ho fell down dead. The
next day a party of us was made up,
n!id we went out where the fight took
place. Kuox's body lay there amid the
cactus in the sun. The Apaches, con
trary to their usual custom, had not mu
tilated the fellow's body in tho least.
They had taken a clean pocket handker
chief ont of Knox's pocket and carefully
spread it over his face aud had fastened
it there by putting a small stone on each
corner cf it to hold it in its place and
keep tha hot snn from the dead man's
face. That was their tribute to the
sand in Knox. Seventy empty shells
were found that had been emptied from
Knox's Winchester, and one of tho raid
ing Indians afterward eaid that their
party numbered 42 and that Knox had
killed seven of them." Pomona Prog
ress. " The Servant Mu Uorrlfiod.
Dr. S. had a newly arrived Hiber
nian for a servant. Ho had also recent
ly purchased a pair of porpoise leather
Iniots. His wife, attracted by the nov
elty of the new footwear, asked the doc
tor in the presence of the servant what
they were made of, to which he respond
ed, '-Poriioise hide."
Shortly after the lady from the Emer
ald Ialo interviewed Mrs. S. and an
nounced hex intention of "laving whin
mo week is up." Mrs. S., somewhat
surprised, asked the disturbed domestic
the reason for her announced departure,
to which Bridget responded with a hor

Better left Cnaald.
A certain young poet is equally fa
mous in the world of letters ns an au
thor and among his friends for his blunt
candor that is forever betraying him
into ono of the things one would have
preferred to say differently, as Du Man
ner puts it. On his lost birthday he was
given a charming dinner by his doting
parents, at which he was bitterly disap-
1 ioin ted by the regret of several nota
bles. Thus, when a society girl said to
him at the close of the evening, "What
a delightful time we have had!" he ex
claimed from the fullness of his heart:
"I'm glad it hasn't seemed dull to you.
We invited some awfully clever people,
but not one of them camel" Philadel
Pension For Wwrkingroen In A as trim.
Under the provisions of the Austrian
poor law, at 00 years of age a man may
claim from his native town or commune
a pension efjual to one-third of the daily
wages which he had received during his
working years. The amount varies from
2 to 6 florins a month. In Vienna alone
there are 18,000 jiersons who receive these,
pensions from the city.

Roach, of Pleasant Plains, was in

George Hunt brought some straw
berries into town today which were
truly remarkable for their size, some
being 5i inches in circumference.

A good rain fell this "morning at
Port Byron .and surrounding country,
making the human thermometer run
up to blood heat. If we could get
just one good old-fashioned souser,
it would be worth evervtliinor.
Next Monday Pearsall Bros, will

Friday, June 22, under the auspices
of the Port Byron Silver band. The

there. Nothing but G-inch smiles,
beaming faces and loaded baskets go.

Said a leading citizen yesterday:
I don't see why it is that some of
our ambitions capitalists do not come
to Port Byron and see what can be
done about a water works system.
That we need, and badly, too, tire
protection and hydrants, is a settled
and indisputable fact. A company
contemplating such a move, could
include Le Claire, just across the
river, m the deal. J here is lilcntv
of water for both towns, and power
for the two places could, in my opin
ion, be furnished by a single water
main across the river. I have stud
ied this matter for some time, and
deem it a practicable undertaking.
I would very much like to hear from
other sources on this subject, as it is
one of vital importance to citizens of
1 ort liyron, Le Claire, and the sur
Another big excursion, given bv
the C. M. & St. P.. arrived here to
day from Monticello and Maquokcta,
J. W. Ellis, a;cnt of the St. Paul, at
the latter point, licing among the ex
cursionists. A great disappoint
ment was in store for the pleasure
party at this place, as the Josephine,
npon her arrival here, dumped them,
as usual, upon the sunny, hot shore
about a half-a-mile from town, and
they were comjielled to amble or loi
ter about the streets until the de
parture of the boat for down stream.
There is no cause for such a proceed
ing, as there are several good, shady
and spacious groves a little above
the town w hich could be Used, free of
charge, for the entertainment and re
creation of excursion parties arriving
here. Port Byron desires to be hos
pitable, and her people would like
very much to know if there is not
some other more pleasant place to
land pleasure seekers, and thus save
the townspeople from embarrass
ment and humiliation.

The breath of a chronic catarrh pa

comes an object of disgust. After a
time ulceration sets in, the spongy
bones are attacked, and frequently
destroyed. A constant source of dis
comfort is the dripping of the puru

times producing inveterate bronchi

cause of pulmonary disease. The
