Responsive to laughter or sigh.

Shimmered the tremulous moon.
Glxaiued 'mid the grass? i the flroflies.
Katydids chirruped in .une;
Coyly the zephyrs on tiptoe
Kissed the sweet lips oi each 'flower
Our hearts felt the mai.al pulsing
Of the balmy, mystic: hour.

With fervor in look a'. in ki w;
Coursed through our veins thi hot current
Of thrilling and ruptur 111s bliss.

RESCUE FR03I THE SIOUX
On the 3l !;iy of May, T.s, a pionet-r ou
the Solomon river, Kansiss, beard the re
ports of rifles to the west of hint just as he
had finished breakfast. His name was
Cherry, and his family consisted of a wife
and two boys. Only one of t he loys was at
home at the time. lie was a lad of 12,
named John. The Indians had been surly
and menacing all winter, an 1 every white
iuu Knew mat r:i oiiinreaK was liKely to
occur in the spring. Belie ving that the
blow was about to fall Cherry closed and
barricaded the doors, and made ready to
hold out as long as possible.
Two hours parsed quietly, and then the
settler argued that the firing must have
come from a party of hunters. In order
to satisfy himself on this point be slipped
out of the back, door into the brush, in
tending to go up the river to tbe other
cabin. He had gone only a quarter of a
mile when five Indians fired on him from
an ambush. Every bullet, 1 they after
ward related, inflicted a mortal wound.
Cherry fell to the earth, but as they rushed
forward to scalp him he k lied the fore
moet man with a shot, and then drawing
his knife, he attacked the ol hers and cut
two of them badly before he fell down and
The reports of the rifles warned Mrs.
Cherry of what had happened to her hus
band. He had taken the ri;le, while she
had a shotgun and Johnny had a single
barreled pistol. They did n it have long
to wait. A band of nine warriors came
toward the front of tho ho ise waving a
white shirt as a flag of tru ie, and when
within ten feet of the door the leader
called to the occupants of tht- house:
"We no hurt you if you op n door!"
"If you try to get in we shall shoot!" re
plied Mrs. Cherry.
The Indians laughed in derision, and
four or five stopped forward to burst in
the door. Mrs. Cherry and Johnnie quiet
ly retreated to the back do ir, hoping to
get clear of the house, but as they opened
it two warriors were found there on guard.
Mother and son fired together and the two
men fell, but before the fugitives had run
a hundred yards they were overtaken. The
first impulse of the Indians was to toma
hawk them, but after a wrangle lasting
two or three minutes the lives of the pris
oners were spared. They were taken back
to the house, their arms tied behind their
backs, and thi n, conducted by two war
riors, they set off for the w.-st. The In
dians they had fired on at tl e door were
both dead before the party scarted. This
made three warriors killed ami two wound
ed by the Cherry family.
Mrs. Cherry and Johnnie were taken to
the other settler's, whose name was Rob
inson. He had been shot down in his door,
and his wife and sister were prisoners.
The house had been ransacked and set
afire, and one of the Indians had Robin
son's scalp at his girdle. The prisoners,
who now numlered four and were guarded
by only two men, were conducted along a
small creek which emptied into the Sol
omon, and after marching about seven
miles were halted in a grove. The guards
offered them no violence, and they were al
lowed to talk with each other as they
walked along. The two Robinson women
were completely overcome, but Mrs. Cherry
and Johnnie were full of cou-age and de
termined to escape if possible.
The grove had been named us a rendez
vous, and the four prisoners were the first
to reach it. One of the guards had an old
wound in the side, and about a n hour after
reaching t he irrove he pulled off his shirt
to dress it. Mrs. Cherry's arms were so
Becurely bound that she could not release
them. They had leen more cs reless in the
case of the boy. As the two I idians were
employed with the wound the lad worked
his arms loose, and with an encouraging
nod from his mother he made a rush for
the rifles. With one of them he shot the
wounded Indian dead. The other was
wrested from him before he could lire, but
he turned and ran and got clear away,
dodging the bullet sent afrer him, and the
surviving Indian did not dare to pursue
him for fear the women would get away.
This brought the dead up to four. What
happened to the lad after his escape no one
will ever know, as no trace of hiui was
ever discovered. I myself w;is employed
for nearly sis months searching for. him
after peace came, but nothin came of it.
He was not killed as he wandered about,
neither was he retaken. I believe he per
ished on the plains from exhaustion.
The remaining Indian sat vrith his rifle
across his knees and guarded the women
nntil a band of seven or eight of his com
panions came up. They had as prisoners
two children lielonging to a family named
Hascall, a woman named Detring and a
boy 10 years old named Lawtou. Thin boy
had been living with an uncle named
Thomas, and both his aunt and uncle had
been killed. In the raid on the wittlers quite
a number of Indians had been killed and
many wounded. But for the e Sorts of the
subchiefs all the prisoners would have
been tomahawked. About 2 o'clock in the
afternoon the party left the grove and
headed to the northwest. All t he lashings
were cist off to enable the prisonets to
move faster, and in the confusion of start
ing Mrs. Cherry mauaged to pick up and
secrete a hunting knife which had be
longed to the Indian her boy f hot. After
traveling four hours the Inditu? made a
camp without fire, food or water. Here
one of the Indians attempted to outrage
Mrs. Cherry, and she gave him sucb a blow
across the throat with the keen edged
knife that his head was alm ist severed
from his body. She was disarmed and
tied hand and foot, and the Indians prom
ised that she should be tortured for three
whole days before death came t 1 her relief.
I must now continue the story from a
liferent experience. Twenty day wttrr
the party of prisoners had disappeared into
the Indian country I was engages or the
lather or the Lawton boy and by a brother
of Mrs. Cherry to make an effort to find
and rescue them. The northern and west
ern parts of Kansas were then in the hands
of the hostile, many of the forts and posts
besieged, and there were no railroads to
transport troops. Indeed, the lethargy of
the government in re-enforcing the troops
occupying stations greatly encouraged the
Indians and prolonged the war.
Y hen I cut loose from the frontier I had
as a comrade a scout and Indian fighter
named Reld. We were mounted on fine
and speedy mules, had Winchester rifles
and revolvers, and the pair of ns were pat
np against four or five large tribes of In
dians. Scores of prisoners had been car
ried off along the entire frontier, and to
look for any particular one seemed a hope
less task. We knew, however, that the
two we wanted had made their start from
the grove on Mink creek, and we decided
to make that oar point of departure. It
was theu forty miles from the nearest mili
tary posi, but we reached it without acci
dent. We had not yet unsaddled our horses
wuen lom made a discovery that famished
us with a clew. He picked up an Indian
tobacco pouch which had belonged to a
Sioux. Up to this time we did not know
whether the pair we were after had been
captured by the Sioux or Cheyennes. This
gave us a big start in the right direction.
Although the two tribes had joined bands
for the war, their territory still remained
the same, and their villages had not been
moved. We must bear more to the west
and search among the Sioux.
It must not bo imagined that we went
riding boldly around the country on our
errand. There were days and days that
we lay in hiding. If we moved at all it
was by night, and then only short dis
tance. The country swarmed with rod
bkius, and there was never an hour that
we were not in danger. Wo were gradual
ly working toward the villages on the
Smoky Hill ford and its territories, and
oar game was to play hide and seek. As
lxt h of as understood the Sioux dialect, we
picked tip bits of information let fall now
and then by parties passing oar hiding
places, and snch were our precantions that
we (vorKed our way over seventy miles
Into the Indian country without leaving a
trail an where.
We had one close call as we n eared the
villages. We had advanced about five
miles during the night over ground so hard
as to leave no trail, and were lying up for
the day in a dry ravine. About 9 in the
morning, as I was on watch, I espied a
couple of Indians to the east. They had been
sent from some war party with a message
to one of the villages. They were riding
at a galiop when I first saw them, but of a
sodden they halted, held a council, and
both rode into the ravine about eighty rods
alwve our position. They could not have
seen our trail, nor had they reason to sus
pect our presence, and I never coo hi fathom
their action. They were coming right down
opon us, and I had Tom awake in a jiffy.
J ust above us was a sharp bend, and here
we took our stations, revolvers in hand.
The ponies of the Indians came scrambling
along the rough path, one closely follow
ing the other, and the first rider never
knew what hit him. The second saw us,
but was dead five seconds after, and we at
once secured the ponies. We were a bit
anxious for the next hour, fearing that the
report of the revolvers might have reached
the eais of Indians riding about; but no
one appeared, and the day wore away with
out the slightest alarm. This was the
fourteenth day of our advance, and the
thirty-fourth day of Mrs. Cherry's capture.
Let us now return to her.
The prisoners were marched across the
country to the villages on the Smoky Hill
fork. The first idea was to put them all
to the torture, but the chiefs finally de
cided to hold them for a while and see how
events would shape. Two sons of promi
nent chiefs and a great medicine man had
been captured by the whites, and it might
be that they would have to be ransomed
by giving up prisoners. Mrs. Cherry and
the Law ton boy were kept in one village,
while all others captured with them were
sent to another. They were made to carry
wood and water, live on the food thrown
to the dogs, and every hour in the day
were told of the fate in store for them.
Both were beaten by Indian women and
boys, but they did not feel their lives in
peril. They slept in a tepee with an In
dian boy about 18 years of age and an old
hag of a squaw.
On the afternoon of the day we killed
the two Indians in the ravine Mrs. Cherry
secreted a tomahawk under the dried grass
composing her bed. It belonged to the In
dian boy, but he did not miss it. She
heard them talking that day about mov
ing camp, but nothing was done because
no orders came. At midnight, when every
thing was quiet, Mrs. Cherry crept over to
the Indian boy and sank the blade of the
tomahawk in his skull. He raised his
arms, but made no outcry, and was dead
in two or three minutes. She disposed of
the old woman in the same way, and then
waking up young Lawton she took him by
the hand and walked out of the village.
At 1 o'clock in the morning, as I was
scouting on foot to locate the village and
was within a mile of it, I met Mrs. Cherry
and the lwy. She had the Indian boy's
bow and quiver, and Lawton carried the
blood stained tomahawk. We pushed back
to tbe ravine as fast as we could go, and
after reaching it we lost no time in mount
ing and heading to the south. We were
not followed from the camp, as an order
reached it at daylight to move to a distant
point, and we dodged the war parties nntil
another two hours would have carried ns
into a post. We were then suddenly con
fronted by a band of thirty warriors, but
after a race of two miles we beat them in
securing possession of a grove, and for
three hours we held them at bay. Troops
from the post then came to our rescue.
I had been hit in the arm, Tom in the
shoulder, Mrs. Cherry in the cheek and
tbe boy lost two fingers by a bullet. We
had killed three warriors, wounded two
or three more and knocked over four
ponies. The Indians were scared away
from the post very soon. What they did
with the captives among them we never
learned. New York Sun.
Weight of the Moon.
Professor Harkness, of Washington, it is
reported, has arrived at a value for the
moon's mass (weight) which differs con
siderably from that given in the text books.
He makes tbe ratio of moon to earth to be
as one to CS.C5, while the most recent pre
vious value is one to 81 Jf, and the figures of
Harkness are noteworthy as a return to
ward those used by Laplace and other
astronomers in the trly part of this cent
