which tho roods were built, in the Pecos and
Devil's Hiver countries, were unorganized,
nnd since tie labor employel along the lino

In the moautum. there was a company of

to the secretary of war at Washington ask

Capt Randiett's oanjjany to go to the scent)
of action at once. At 4 o'clock the morning
after the alarm the cavalry were aboard the
cars and whirling along to tho fray. They
were gone s reek ( r ten days, eallarruping
around over the trairies in search of the
bloody bostiles, and returned with the report
that no one had been killed und not a living
soul could be found who bad seen or definitely
heard of an Indian. Tho fears of the people
gradually subsided md the incident became
a thing of the past.
TBS HTSTIBT CLKABED CP.
During that summer tbe writer had ocesr
sion to go to Langfc-y, where Judge Bean was
conducting his establishment for the dispen
sation of liquids. Incidentally the judge de
tailed the facts, wi :h much glee, about the
cause of the recent called Indian outbreak.
They were as follows; One forenoon there ar
rived at Langtry ti ranger and a cowboy,
who announced to ais honor that they were
going over into Mexico, about hnlf a mile
away, to bunt deer and turkeys. . They drank
considerable lief ore starting, and shortly after
arriving on the Mexican side of the river
tbey discovered a wild Apache buck about
U years old. They immediately drew down
upon him, disannel him, and, contrary to
every principle of international law between
tho two republics, f orced him to come with
them to the American side.
The Indian could speak neither1 English nor
Spanish, eo they took him up to Judge Bean,
who spoke Apache nnd several other Iudian
dialects quite fluent y. After imbibing freely
of the ardent fluid and loosening up tbe In
dian's tongue tho quartet became quite fa
miliar. Thoy wuiW on the operator in a
body and invited fcim to join the festivities
of the hilarious cob rie, and when he had pre
cipitated himself vdth sufficient fervor into
the cup that cheers and likewise inebriates
ihey persuaded him to flash the announcement
over the wire: "Tho Indians are upon us!"
He was sensible enough not to sign his sta
tion, and to this good day it has been a mys
tery as to what wa the origin and substance
of the terrible Indii n scare of 1883.

INTERESTING GUESSING MATCH.
A Few Simple Tests Which Illustrate Com
mom Errors of Judgment.
.A crank who is an occasional visitor to a
down town offloe entered the place tbe other
day when nobody appeared to be very busy.
Some one was telling a story in which he
made mention of some object "about the size
of a stiver dollar" when the crank interrupted
the speaker with the remark:
. "I ll bet $5 there isnt a man in this office
who can tell without measuring' what tbe
exact aize of a silver dollar is."
' The bet was not taken, for nobody knew.
The crank went on:
"I am also willing to give $5 to the man
who will take bis pen or pencil and draw a
line which shall represent the exact diameter
of a silver dollar."
Upou this all hands made the attempt. A
piece of papor was taken, and each took bis
turn at drawing a line upon it. When all
had finished tbe crank took a dollar from his
pocket and placed it successively over each
of the marks. Some of them were too long
by half an inch, and some lacked almost that
much in length. There wasn't one which was
not as much as an eighth of an inch out of
the way. The eccentric visitor said:
"For men who handle as much money as
you do, it is strange you are uot more fa
miliar with its shape and appearance. Now
let me test your judgment in another matter.
Here is a long sheet of white paper, which I
will place upright against the wall back of
this table. Now take your pencils and mark
on the paper what you think is the height of
an ordinary silk hat. Some of you have a siE?
hat here, I suppose?"
"Mine is in the other room," answered one
of the clerks.
"Well, lot it stay there until we want it
Now try to guess how tull the hat is, and
mark tho paper accordingly."
The estimates afforded a curious illustra
tion of the way men's opinions will differ
even about a small matter. Between tbe
shortest and the longest mark there was a dif
ference of nearly four inches. When the hat
was brought out and set upon, the table
against the paper, all the marks, with t wo ex
ceptions, were from one to three inches too
long. The nearest guess was made by a man
who made a mark about three-quarters or an
inch too short. Then tbe crank asked for an
estimate of tbe difference in the height of his
derby and the "silk hat. The guessers didn't
come as near as before.
"That Is the way it is," said tbe crank.
"People have an idea that a high bat is ever
so much higher than a common one, yet yem
will find if yon measure both that the differ
ence is very little. Tbe eye that Is not trained
in measuring distances will lead its possessor
into some serious errors of judgment."
The Dane of tbe Lady Crab.
Without apparent cause he was seen to rise
upon the third and fourth pair of legs; his
large chela were thrown above bis head with
tbe claws open and their points touching in
the middle line; his fifth pair of feet were
held horizontally behind, and his body per
pendicular to tbe floor of the aquarium, or at
right angles to the normal position. The
posture was ludicrous, and, when in this po
sition he began slowly to gyrate, his move
ments and attitude were the cause of much
merriment upon the part of the spectators.
At times he balanced on two legs of one side,
again on two legs of opposite sides. Now he
advances slowly and majestically, and now
be wheels in circles in the sand on the floor
of the aquarium, and now for a rw momenta
he stands as if transfixed in this unnatural
Anolectrto ll.ht hung above and to one
side of tho wtter, which suggested tbe possi
bility that re might be the exciting causa. It
was turned out, and still the dance went on,
and the Joy was unconflned. At last, from
sheer exhaustion, be sinks down to tbe sand
in his usual attitude.
But now the female, who has all this time
remained tucked away in the sand, comes
forth and begins to move about the aquarium ;
soon she comes near to the male crab, when
Instantly he rises to his feet and begins to
dance. Again and again the performance is
repeated, and each time the approach of the
female is the signal for the male to rear high
upon his hind feet, and to reel about the
aquarium as If intoxicated. T. H. Morgan
in Popular Science Monthly.
IIow Hotels Are Protected.
I have frequently been asked how it is a
great hotel can entertain so many guests with
so little "dead beating" by strangers. To me
it seems simple enough, though when I give
the matter thought outside of business hours
I can readily understand why the question Is
asked. There are many new faces every day,
and not a few guests come to the hotel with
out baggage. It would be easy enough
for suob to partake of a meal or so, or even
occupy a room, and leave without paying.
But the guest must register. While he is
writing hia name you can gauge him, and
few experienced hotel clerks often make a
mistake in their man. . Again, the- law is so
stringent, and detection so certain, that few
rogues care to take the risks Involved, and
during the year there is very little loss in
that direction to tbe first class hotel The
worthless check racket is threadbare and
rarely attempted. There was a time when a
check was looked upon as being as good as a
greenback, but that day has long since passed,
and a hotel is now as careful as a bank in
cashing a check or draft. We get left occa
sionally, but it's very cold weather when we
do. Hotel Man in St Louis Globe-Democrat.
Herring for Sardines.
"Most of the sardinue sold nowadays," says
a grocer, "are nothing but small herrings put
up in boxes with gaudy labels and French In
scriptions. In Eastport there are nineteen
places where they turn out sardines, besides
three at Lubec, two at Jonesport and one
each at Millbridge, Lamoine aud Robinstou.
When it was -first attempted to make sar
dines from herrings It was found that tho
difficulty lay in eradicating the herring flavor.
It took years of experiment to accomplish
this. Finally a manufacturer succeeded in
producing a combination of oil and spices
which removed the trouble." "Chicago Her
ald. The new American navy, when completed,

armored cruiser Maine, carrying 444 men,
down to a first class torpedo boat, carrying

men en board the 22 vessels 600 officers and '
5,280 sailors and marines.

If you have made up yonr mind to buy
Hood's Sarsaparilla do not be induced to take
any other. Hood's Sarsaparilla is a peculiar
medicine, possessing, by virtue of its peculiar
combination, proportion, and preparation,
curative power superior to any other article.
A Boston lady who knew what she wanted,
and whose example is worthy imitation, tells
hor experience below:
"la one store where I went to buy Hood's
Sarsaparilla the clerk tried to induce me buy
their own Instead of Flood's; he told me thelr's
would last longer; that I might take It on tea
days' trial; that if I did not like It I need not
pay anything, etc. But he could not prevail
on me to change. I told him I knew what
Hood's Sarsaparilla was. I had taken It, was
satisfied with it, and did not want any other.
When I began taking Hood's Sarsaparilla
I was feeling real miserable, suffering
a great deal with dyspepsia, and so weak
that at times I could hardly stand. I looked,
and had for some tune, like a person In con
sumption. Hood's Sarsaparilla did me so
much good that I wonder at myself sometimes,
and my friends frequently speak of it." Mb
