THE MGUS, SATURDAY, APBtL 18, 1903.
A FIGHTING PARSON.
Terrible . Fate of a young Man
Who Wat Captured by a
Hand of Indians.
In the days "when the diligence, or
stagecoach, started from Paso del Nor
te to go to Chihuahua there were three
points of great danger along the trail,
one of which was Candelleria, or the
Candle mountain pass, says Colonel
Jack Crawford, the one time noted
Beout. Here lurked a band of Indians
under Victoria and Nana, most notori
ous of the Masscellerro and Apache In
dians. These chiefs were reckoned the
most bloodthirsty and cruel of any that
Infested the border at that time.
One night as we neared the pass on
the way to Chihuahua It was pitch
dark. I rode in advance of the coach.
Tho only passenger was a twenty-two-year-old
j-oung man named Pugh from
St Louis. The diligence was drawn by
old fashioned mule teams. A typical
cocherro, or driver, named Pedro Au
gustan held the lines. He was a genu
ine Castilian. Beside Pedro rode the
flambeau boy, with his pipe sticks and
Boon I saw signs of Indians and rode
back to warn the driver.
Before I reached the diligence a rifle
cracked, and one of the lead mules fell
dead. The flambeau boy lighted his
resin torch to see what was the matter.
The mules, all a fright, became tan
gled in the harness. We all were at
sea as to where the deadly bullet came
Then came from directly before us a
screech of infernal yells, often read
about, but rarely heard. We knew the
Indians, while not advancing, were
going to wait to see which way we
'Tut out the flame," I called quickly
to the boy. "Quit your team and get
your rifle, Fedro." I exclaimed to the
driver, and I ordered Tugh, the only
passenger, to hide in the shadows be
hind the rocks. It was useless to try
to go farther, as the Indians had set an
ambuscade for us.
"Pedro," I said, "we'll stand them
off. We can kill them. It's our only
chance." I hid my horse in the shad
ows, told Pedro to get a mule, ordered
the boy to get another and toid Pugh
to do likewise. But poor Pugh became
dazed with fright, and instead of fall
ing back to shelter he rushed ahead of
the mules and straight into the arms oi
the Indian runners. With n storm of
hideous yells the redskins danced
about the captive. We did not see
Pugh run away in the dark, and th
first we knew of his capture was when
we heard his screams rising above
those of the demons who caught him.
We three who remained fell back to
ward Los Toncas, hearing as we re
treated the unearthly, demoniacal yells
of the Apaches and the heartbreaking
cries of the young man. Attempt at
rescue was useless. We never could
have helped the poor boy. We could
hear his screams as they tortured, mu
tilated and burned his body. While
THE EEDSKXSS DANCED ABOUT THEIB CAP
TIVE. tbey were dancing about the fire In
fiendish delight we were keeping up a
constant fusillade to shiw them that
we were ready for them, but they did
not leave their victim. We retreated
to Del Norte and notified the people,
who went out and placed a rude monu
ment where the boy's ashes lay strewn
over the ground.

Bishop Moore, Head of the Methodist
Church In Kaitern Aula.'
Bishop David II. Moore, LL.. D., of
the Methodist Episcopal church, who
has just sailed from San Francisco
after a brief vacation in this country
to resume his duties as head of the dio
cese of eastern Asia, has already spent
two years in the orient.
When Bishop Moore was sent in 1000
to take charge of the diocese of eastern
Asia, which jurisdiction includes Chi
na, Japan and Korea, he had Just
been elected to the episcopate, and hla
selection for that Important iost a
post that, required the exercise of
great personal courage as well as much
tact and diplomacy was a compliment
that had never before been paid to a
Methodist bishop so young in otlloe.

church militant. He served throughout
the civil war as a soldier in the Union
army. He volunteered as a private
and almost immediately was elected
captain in the Eighty -seventh Ohio in
fantry. Taken prisoner at Harpers
Ferry,- he was soon afterward ex
changed and assisted in raising the
One Hundred and Twenty-fifth Ohio
Infantry, of which he became lieuten
ant colonel. After the fall of Atlanta
he resigned from the army and re
turned to the pulpit. Since that time
Bishop Moore has steadily grown in
importance in the church.
Bishop Moore has had many exciting
adventures in all three of the coun
tries in his jurisdiction. While mak
ing a visit to Korea with a party of
friends they came near meeting death
at the hands of some Korean coolies,
who mistook them for Russians. The
attack was most furious, but the party
defended themselves with the modern
weapons in their possession until they
were finally rescued by members of the
Japanese consulate. A number of the
coolies were later tried and punished
by the Korean government.
During the Boxer uprising Bishop
Moore had many thrilling experiences,
but the Chinese found that in dealing
with him they had a genuine American
"fighting parson" to consider. The
bishop is sixty-live years old.

The wonderfxil power of Iydia E. Pinkham's Vegrctable Compound over the diseases of -womankind
is not because it is a stimulant, not because it is a palliative, but simply because it is the most
wonderful tonic and reconstructor ever discovered to act directly upon the whole uterine system, positively
CUlilNG disease and restoring health and vigor.
Marvelous cures are reported from all parts of the country by women who have been cured, trained
nurses who have witnessed cures, and physicians who have recognized the virtue in Lydia E.
Pinkham's Vegetable Compound and are fair enough to give credit where it is due.
One of Many Women Cured by Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound,
Without Submitting to an Operation, Writes:
"Dear Mrs. Pixkham : I was a great sufferer for three years, had some of the leading physicians',
and they all said nothing but an operation would cure me, but to that I would not submit.
"I picked up a paper and saw your advertisement and made up my mind to try your medicine. I
had falling and inflammation of the womb and a flow of whites all the time, pains across small of hac&i
severe headache, did not know what it was to bo without a pain oj an ache until I used your medicine
After three months' use of it, I felt liko a new woman. I still, sound the praise of Lydia 12. Pinkliam'te

A Graduate Nurse, Convinced by Cures, Endorses Lydia E. Pinkham's- .
Vegetable Compound. She Writes: v
"Dear Mrs. Pixkhaai: Ministering to the sick I have had numerous chances to compare Lydia
E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound with other medicines in cases of diseases of women, and the
number of cures recorded where your medicine was used convinced me that it is the safest and surest
medicine for a sick woman. Doctors certainly must know the value of Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound. Iam convinced that you deserve the splendid record you have made. Yours very truly,1

Lydia E. Pinkham's Compound for the Cure of Woman's Ills,
1 -and Weare Permitted to Publish the Following:
"Dear Mrs. Pixkiiam: It gives me groat pleasure to state that I have found Lydia E. Pinkliam
Vegetable Compound very efficacious, and have often prescribed it for female difficulties.
"My oldest daughter found it very beneficial for uterine trouble some two years ago, and my youngest
daughter is using it for female weakness, and as a tonic, and is slowly but surely gaining strength and health.
" I freely advocate it as a most reliable specific in all disorders which women are subject to, and give it
honest endorsement. Yours very truly, Sarah C. JBrigham, M.D., 4 Brigham Park, Fitchburg, Mass."
If physicians dared to be frank and open, hundreds of them would acknowledge that they constantly
prescribe Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound in severe cases of female ills, as they know by
experience that it ean be relied upon to effect a cure.
Women who are troubled with painful or irregular menstruation, backache, bloating (or flatulence),
leucorrhoea, falling, inflammation or ulceration of the uterus," ovarian troubles, that "bearing-down" feeling,
dizziness, faintness, indigestion, nervous prostration or the blues, should take immediate action to ward off
the serious consequences, and be restored to perfect health and strength by taking Lydia E. Pinkham's
Vegetable Compound, and then write to Mrs. Pinkham. Lvnn. Mass., for further free advioe. No living
jrson has had such a vast and successful experience in treating female

The Coming of a Doctor to Locate
Permanently in a town has no half-way significance upon the suffering hu
manity of a city either he is going to benefit them greatly or just the re
verse. When Dr. Home announced intention through the columns of this
paper of permanently locating here, naturallj- all thinking people wanted
to know all about him. His advertisements were bold, startling, but con
vincing; the testimonials were signed by the most reputable citizens.
People commenced to investigate, and visited his offices, and the most
convincing and pathetic scenes were seen in and around their reception
rooms. People who had been suffering with rheumatism, lame back and
sciatica for years were being cured by a method that is as skillful, pain
less and quick as it is wonderful. Just think of a man who could hardly
walk for years, all crippled up with rheumatism, after taking one of his
treatments, dancing around the room with joy. People deaf for several
years had their hearing restored, and were, one and all, anxious that their
names should be given to the public, so that others might be cured.

complishing with his new methods, and all patients say how much he is d
ing for them, lie has extended his liberal offer of free TREATMENT for
