SAVED BY A BADGE.
A STCRY THAT WILL INTEREST ALL
There Wae a Rope Koand the Gamma
Beta HtM Keck, and Be Wm About to
Be Strong l"p When Ilia College Society
Emblem Vu Seen by One Who Knew It.
The sixtieth animal dinner of Gam
ma Beta was curtain ly a groat success.
At tho Ions table sat 1 50 guests, of all
ages and from all parts of tho laud.
Tho feast was ended when the captain
arose from las place near tho head of
the board. Straight of figure and alert
of eye, ho boro his 60 years lightly.
"Boys," says tho captain, "1 haven't
been to a Gamma Beta dinner for 40
veers. The last tiiuo I went I was a boy
in college. As I look around me I am
plad I am not the oldest alumnus here,
for I feel us young as any freshman.
But 1 came hero tonight to tell yon a
story, and if yon have patience to hear
mo I may as well liegiii. member,
wo old ones are garrulous at 'times and
stop me when you havo had enough. "
His audience was all attention, and
tho captain lighted a fresh cigar, blew
out a puff of smoke and began.
"I was the first northern man to
plant cotton in Arkansas after the war.
Tho state had declared for the Union
early in 1804, bnfc there wfw plenty of
lawless secessionism about, and a north
erner's life and property were none too
sale. Beforo I had been long at my
planting I got a notice from some of my
secessionist friends that I mn.st stop op
erations or leave the district if I bad
any regard for my life in short, they
gave me to understand that if they
caught mo they would string mo up t
the nearest tree as sure ns my name was
Jim Roberts. Now, 1 didn't intend to
stop planting, and 1 didn't intend to bo
hanged, so I went ahead and told them
they conld hang me if they could catch
"About a month after that 1 was rid
ing across country one afternoon to get
a little business done in the nearest
town. As I entered a lonely pieco of
road a dozen men jumped out of tho
woods, pointed their guns at my head
and ordered mo to halt mid dismount
I raw I could do nothing but surrender
at discretion, so I came down from my
horse and was inarched oft in silence.
In a few minutes we turned into a lauo
that led deeper into the woods and kept
on until we came to a little clearing.
One of my friends brought out a rope,
slung one end of it over tho limb of a
convenient tree and had the other end
slipknotted around my neck in a jiffy.
"Probably none of you has ever felt a
hangman's rope around his neck, so yon
can't appreciate the state of my feelings
at that time. I'll tell yon, I felt pretty
serious and thought my lease of life hud
run out for certain. But, a mau clings
to life at such times, and all at ouee I
had a happy thought. I remembered
that I had a package of excellent cigars
in my pocket, and I drew it out.
" 'Gentlenieu, ' I said, with as much
coolness as I could muster. 'I know
that I have but a few minutes more to
live. 1 want to ask one favor. Give me
tiiuo to sinoko out a cigar before you
swing me into eternity. Will yon join
me? You will liud them most excel
lent. "My captors grimly assented, and we
lighted our 'weeds' together. Ko one
said a word. Well, boys, 1 made that
cigar hold out, yon may depend. But it
would burn. Littlo by little the ash be
gan to get longer and drop off until
there was just so much left. " And the
captain held up his smoking stump,
measuring its small remainder critical
ly with his finger.
" 'Well,' thought I to myself, 'here
goes for a few more puffs anyway.'
ami I was just getting the very last of
them when we heard a hoi-so coming
through tho trees. A fine looking fellow
rode up, who seemed to Iw a sort of
commander of the company. 'Hello,
boys! lie called out, 'who've you got
hc5M? 'We've got Roberts, and We'ro
going to hang him, ' said they. 'All
right, ' said the officer and cainu over to
have a look at ma
"Now, I had on my watch chain this
liUlo badge here," and tho captain
toueiied a jpwclcd monogram of gold
that hung to his breast. "1 have a'ways
worn it there and expect to as long as I
live. My coat was open, aiid as the Con
federate camo up his eye caught tho
badge. Well, sirs, he turned all sorts of
colors, and leaning close to my ear
whispered the name of our fraternity,
at the same timo grasping my hand with
the good old Gamma grip, given with
the strength of a giant. Then he turned
,o his men. .. ,'JBpjrtv,! said he, 'this man
fis my friend. ., You must .Jet him co.'
Aiid in nil instant 'he took t he rope from
?iy neck," led ttp my horse, pulled a pair
f. pistols from his pocket and handed
ono to me. Now, brother,' said he, do
fend yourself and get away ns best you
can!' I lost no time in following his ad
vice and made my escape. And here I
am today, nnd that is all. "
Thero was a storm of applause when
tho captain had finished nnd had taken
"But, captain," cried more than one,
"yon'll have to finish the story. Who
was tho man that got yon free, and did
yon ever see him again?"
Tho captain arose again, smiling.
"Who was he? Well, he U.longcd to one
of our southern chapters. And did I
ever .see him again? Yes, I did."
The captain laid his hand on tho
shoulder of an elderly man in the seat
next to him. "Yes, I can see him this
minute. Ned, tell the boys your side of
tho story!" New Y'ork Tribune.

A PERMANENT GUARDIAN.
That for Jom Tammpeou aae of Daven
port Wealthiest Clllxens.
In the district court at Daver.port,
Judge Waterman has banded down
a decree in the case of the guardian
ship of James Thompson, one of
Davenport's wealthiest citens. The
decree cites the faot that the court
has found the assets of Mr. lhom
son to amount to about $1.20'),0(Ji),
but that this amount is eff-set by
large liabilities, both direct and con.
tingent. It is found that during the
recent tight financial situatiou Mr.
Thompson sold and assigned a large
amount of notes and pcrsoi.nl'y guar
anteed the collection and lull pay
ment of the same. -In many in.
stances the real estate security Tor
the notes is inadequate or has shrunk
in value so that it could not be sold
for sufficient to psv tho amount of
the note, leaving Mr. Thompson lia
ble lo pay the note in fnJI and re
coup as far as possible from the de
preciated security. In the light of
these facts the court lituls that Mr.
Thompson is una Wo to pay his lia
bilities in the ordinary course of
bu-siness, and declares the estate in
solvent. Joe U. Iane is appointed
permanent guardian on account of
Mr. Thomnsou's incapacity for the
management of his business, am! is
directed to settle the e..ta'c in liie
manner to the tisnal inol.ent est rite.
While the assets amount to fl.2 0,
ODO, the liabilities will not exceed
750.0iK). The estate is declared in
solvent by the court at this time be
canse it would be impossible to dis
pose of the assets at forced sale and
realize enough cash to meet the lia
bilities now due and as they mature.
But in holding the estate insolvent
the court doea not. inplv that in the
end. in a reasonable time with judi
cious management, the c laims aga-nst
it cannot be paid off in full from
the assets. They will be projx rlv
handled and all claim will be paid
A Itls llond.
Mr. Lane ou assuming !ie tempo
rary guardianship some t-me a;o,
tiled a bond of $7(10.000 for the fa th
ful performance of his duties in that
capacity. His Imnd as permanjnt
guurdian was increased tof 1.400,OiiO,

I regard Prof. Uorsford's BakJn;
Powder as healthful and nutritious
it being composed of phospbatic acid
and bi-carbonate of soda. The excel
lence of this combination is so uni
versally coranfeded by physicians
and chemists that my indorsement is
simply superfluous. Bread made
from unbolted or graham fl .ur is
more healthful than that made from
refined flour, simply because the lat
ter has been deprived of tho nutri
tious phosphater. Ilursford's pow
der restores to the flour the phos
phate removed in the bolting pro
cess and increases the food properties
of the bread by that amount. Tbe
phosphates aid the digestion, and
nourish and invigorate the brain and
nervous system, and Prof. Horsford's
method of supplying them with our
daily bread is certainly a wonderful
triumph of scientific genius.
