THE MARE WAS DRUGGED.
WHY JIM CHARLEY SHOT SULLY,
PRAIRIE FLOWER'S TRAINER.
A Stomp Out in Kansas That Serves as a
Dishonest Man's Tombstone Hew the
Peorlaa Repaid the "Feller" Who Fixed
Their Favorite to Lose.
"There's a feller buried by that stump. He
got killed, I reckon."
The reckoning, should the wayfarer pursue
the subject, will bt, found to be correct.
The finest horses in the Indian territory six
years ago were owned by Dave Peery. He
has taken less interest in horses since then,
however. Peery vas a white man who was
adopted by the Peorias whon he was a boy.
He subsequently married the daughter of
Baptist Peoria, t ie chief of the tribe, and
became a man of Importance among the In
dians. Ha tad a 1 :ve of flno horses, and as
his wealth increased be spared neither pains
nor money in obta xilng first class blue grass
horses from Kentucky. Although it is likely
that his best would have had but small chanee
at Shecpehead Bay or Monmouth, yet here
they were wonders.
The flower of the lot was a bay more called
Prairie Flower. At 4 years of age she was
the pride and delig ht of every Indian at the
Quapau agency, and not a buck among them
but would wager his lust pony and the bat
on his head that s le could distance anything
.vest of the Mlssfsippi in a mile dash, or in
two miles, for that matter.
TBS BAIT WAS TAKES.
The fame of Prairie Flower spread until it
reached Kansas C ty and came to the ears of
tho men who or a railed sports, and who
straightway determined to see what could be
done iu the way of 'skinning the backers of
Prairie Flower. A trusted Jockey was sent
down to look at her, and when he got back he
made tho hearts of tho sports glad by saying
that while the mare could 68 everything that
was said of her tttat she could outrun any
thing owned in Ilansas City, at least sho
nevertheless was g-oozned by a white man
one Alfred Sully, trho, for a reasonable share
of the stakes, would fix the mare to lose.
Thereupon the f ports sat down and waited
until a day had benn set for what the Indians
call a payment. A lot of money was due
from the Great Fnther at Washington, and
on a certain day the agent would count it
out to them. It was easy for the sports to
arrange a race for Prairie Flower and an un
known from Kansas City for the day after
the payment, the stakes being $500 a side.
That was a great day for the Indians. It
was also a great di.y for the sportb. The In
dians, in their last apparel, and with the
money received tie day before stuffed in
their pockets, gathered to see the sport. Old
Peery, confident of victory, backed his more
for $1,000 above the stakes. Jim Charley,
Jr., who had a shirt time before got a big
lump of money for some land he had owned
in Kansas City, backed her for $2,000.
Strung along below these were wagers of
hundreds, and so on down to tons and ones
and jack knives at d brass rings. Over $10,
000 of good money was put up on Prairie
Then the horses were brought out amid the
hi-yis and cheers ot a throng of men, women
uud children, nun bering, it is said, upward
of 3,000 people. The excitement was in
tense. Peery 's on son, a lad of light weight
and great skill, rode the more. The un
known, to the dkgust of the Peorias, was
bestrode by a 'nigger."
Finally, on the f .rst try, the racers got off,
with Prairie Flower slightly in the lead. For
over a furlong she drew steadily away. The
Indians, who were spurring their ponies in a
mad gallop along, parallel with the track, in
the hope of seeing every jump in the race,
began to go will As the mare's head
showed clear the.T yelled. Then her neck,
theu her shoulders showed, and when, Just
short of the quart t post, she was seen to be
on entire length in the lead, they throw off
hats and coats and acted like witches with a
saint in the corral
THX BOMETH1NO THAT HAPPKJ.XD.
Then something happened. The Indians
had been having all the fun. It was the
white man's turn now. But the white man,
especially if from Kansas City, was keeping
still. The uuknoT ii begau to hold its own,
and at the half was lapping a neck, but there
wasn't any more cheering. At the three
quarter post Prairie Flower had not only lost
her pace, she was plainly in distress. The
unknown finished by six good lengths ahead.
Had Prairie Flower been owned in any other
country than the Indian territory, and had
any other people toon Indiana been backing
her, there would have been trouble right
away on that race track. The swindle was
barefaced. The More had been drugged.
But the Indians ht d been so often swindled
by white men that they allowed the sports to
ridu away without even making a protest
They were afraid t J say anything.
But, although tb ?y lost their money, they
wero not wholly without revenge. There
arose vary soon after the race an Inquiry for
Bully. Bully bad not been seen about the
track since he turned the mure over to her
jockey, young Pe.'ry. Runners started In
every direction to search for him. Among
them was Jim Charley, Jr., with a party of a
dozen. Tbey wait down past Charley's
house, and began a search up and down the
West River bunk They were joined by
others. All night long they prowled through
the timber withoit success. At daylight
they crossed over. Within fifteen minutes
they hud found a t ail where Sully, who had
entered and left tho water without betraying
himself, bad returt ed during the uigbt for a
drink. Instead of Dying under cover of
darkness for the Missouri lino he had hoped
to hido in the brus i till tho search was over.
His thirst had betrayed him. Once on the
trail, Jim Charley and hia band followed
straight to a thick t near the brow of a cliff
on tho north side of Warren creek. There
they flushed their came. Sully was seen dy
ing through a thicket. A bullet from Jim
Choi-ley's rifle struck him in the back as he
started down the p-ecipitous bank; away he
went headlong, plunging and tumbling from
rock to rock and ledge to ledge, until bis body
lodged against the old stump which is pointed
out to the wayfarsr bound along the trail
there to the old S punish mines.
Be was dead before his body reached the
ctump. The Indians dug grave beside the
old stump, Just out of the trail, tumbled the
body into it aud pied on the dirt. Where
the dead man came from, or whether he bad
any relatives or friends elsewhere nobody
kaows, and, ezoept f or such pasting Interest

Countries Where the Law Requires a Cer
tain Amount of Schooling;.
Prussia has long bad compulsory school at
tendance between the ages of 6 and 14 through
the whole school year, and the same laws in
regard to school attendance, with slight
modifications, prevail through all the states
of the German empire. In Norway, Sweden
and Denmark education is compulsory and
universal, and it is rare in these countries
and in Finland to find an adult who cannot
read and write. .
- Austro-Hungary has compulsory laws simi
lar to those of Germany, which are .pretty
well enforced among the Teutonics popula
lation, but are not enZai-ced among the Hun
garians and other Slavs.
- Italy and Greece have compulsory laws
which are being better and better enforced,
though at present less than one-half of their
men and women can read. Spain enacted a
compulsory law in ST, but has never en
forced it, and 60 per cent of her adults can
not read. Portugal has a similar dead letter
law, and still greater illiteracy than Spain.
In Switzerland compulsory education is
well carried out in the Protestant cantons,
but leas strictly in the Catholic, In Belgium
and the Netherlands schools are provided in
every commune, but attendance is voluntary,
and though illiteracy is diminishing there
is still about one-third of the men and women
who cannot read or write. To encourage ed
ucation in Belgium the local franchise; has
been offered to all who con read and write,
independent of tho usual property qualifica
tions. In Russia, with the exception of Fin
land, education is very backward, and hi
1SS3 only W per cent of her army recruits
could reach Compulsory attendance in Great
Britain is left to the school boards, but is
practically required between the ages of 6
and 13. Franco not only has compulsory at
tendance but hor schools ore more modcrnly,
more thoroughly and more expensively or
ganized than in any other country. In all
European countries where education is com
pulsory the law requires attendance through
the wholo school year, though in Great
Britain half day attendance is accepted by
some school boards. The period to which the
compulsory laws apply is quite uniformly
from 0 to 14, except in Great Britain, where
it is from 5 to 13, and in Greece, where it is
from S to 12. Chicago Times.
Parker's Army Coffin.
A veteran of the regular army said to me
while in a reminiscent mood: "The wildest
madcap of the Federal army during the late
war of the rebellion was D wight Parker, who
was on Hancock's staff. Brave as a lion,
handsome as a picture, be was the ideal sol
dier. Dwight got a furlough after he had
served a long time at the front, and behaved
himself until his arrival in Philadelphia,
There he proceeded to 'inaugurate a howl,'
as you boys say now, but we used to call it 'a
spree.' He just climbed all over the town.
If there was any resident who didn't know he
was in the city, it wasn't his fault He did
the best he knew how, and Dwight wasnt a
man of mean abilities in that line either.
Right in the middle of this spree he went to
the undertaker's and got measured for a
coffin. This, with a plate bearing his name.
with a blank space left for the date of his
death, was forwarded to the Continental
hotel. Dwight was proud of it and celebrated
its arrival in a maimer peculiar to himself.
When his furlough had almost expired he
packed up bis baggage and his coffin and
started for tho front Hancock and the offi
cers of his staff were at first inclined to look
upon Parker's coffin as something ghastly,
but everything wont in the army in those
days, and finally all hands got so accustomed
to seeing the thing around headquarters that
they begau to use is as a sort of waste paper
receptacle. What became of it? Well, I
don't remember. Parker died several years
ago on Governor's Island, X. Y., but he had
a brand new coffin on that occasion, for I
saw it I guess Parker was the only soldier
on either side who carried his coffin with him
during the war." Boston Traveller.
A Bevolting Cumibd Supcrstitlou.
' A curiosity of unpleasant peasant supersti
tion has been revealed at a trial in southern
Russia, which ended in the conviction of four
peasants for the murder of a girl 11 years
old. Tho superstition recalls that about the
thieves and tho candles narrated in connec
tion with the Whitechapel murders. These
peasants, it seems, were believer in the
superstition that candles made of human fat
rendered the bearers invisible. To obtain
these articles they first attempted to murder
a boy in the forest and next tried to kill an
old peasant; thirdly, a Russian clergyman,
and being disturbed ou ail three occasions, at
last succeeded in murdering Sukeria Cber
kaschina. With the fat from the child's body
they made candles, and with their help at
tempted to commit a robbery. The light of
the candles betrayed them, which seems a
singularly just happening, and on being ar
rested they confessed everything. The evi
dence in court showed the beliuf in the
thieves' candle superstition to be very wide
spread in Russia. Cor. Philadelphia Press.
