St. Louis Republic.
Illinois is one of the most prosperous
sta'es in the union, with an iutelligent.in-
dustrious andecte'prising population. and
if all the wealth in tbe state were owned
by the people of the state tbey might be
considered fortunate. Cut. there are 13
500 miles of railroad in Illinois owned
outside tbe state chiefly in tbe money!
manufacturing slates of tbe east. These
railroads are valued at $675 IMIU.OOO, and
tbeir net incone is $23 000,000 a year. If
we consider tbe value of these railroads
as a debt on tbe people of the state.it is a
ery large one about Sa'JO to each fam
ily in tbe state. .11 it be considered a
part of the wealth of the state owned by
non-residents, then it is . a very Urge
proportion of the state's wealth, and the
$23,000 000 a year whicb goes to tbe east
to pay interest and dividends is more
tbsn the entire wheat crop of tha state
in'1890 was worth. If. as has been es
timated, the manufacturers' protective
tariff costs the people of Illinois $20,
OOO.OOO a year, it mty be assumed ibat
these f675.00O,0OO worth of railroads
whicb do not belong to them were never
theless built with their money, and be
$23,000 000 taken out of the state to pay
interest and dividends is what they are
paying in interest on the product of j
their own sweat. '

When the Indians turned loose in west
ern Kansas sod Nebraska ia 1887-8 the.
found hundreds of scattered ranchmen and
pioneers totally anprepared for either re
aistaocn or flight. Tbe red man had no
merer in his heart for old or young. H
took no prisoners men, women and chil
dren were tomahawked and scalped as fast
as they fell into his hands. From tha Nio
brara river, in Sooth Dakota, to tbe
Cimarron, down in the southwest cornet
of Kansas, he desolated the laod with torch
At midnight one night a wounded man
rode into our camp on the Smoky Hill fork
of the Kansas river, on the Overland trail
He had two bulleta in his body, and he fell
to the earth as he was challenged by oar
sentinel, but be had a atory to tell before
he died. Ten miles to the north of as s
pioneer had staked out his claim and set
up his home in detlance of alljdaugers. Ha
bad come from tbe Missouri river, and the
family consisted of himself, wife, a son
fourteen years old and a sUter-in-law ot
eighteen. It was almost criminal on hit
pnrt to thus expose their liven, but tbe
frontiers of the west wit nessed thousands
of such instances. The family had re
mained too lonr. When it was decided tc
abandon the claim and seek safety tha
country was full of war parties thirsting
for vengeance. The wounded man was a
land looker, who was just riding away
from tbe cabin of the Applegates when
fired upon. They might b nble to defend
the cabin for a few hours, but unless help
was sect them they would be wiped out
We were but a detachment of a regiment,
with work enough on band for a regiment,
and no force could be spared. The captain
in command shook his he-itd as tbe story
was finished, and the shadow of death
flitted over tbe tr.ee of the man who had
come riding t hrough the darkness to tell it
as his life ebbed away. His entire force
would not have been strong enough to at
tempt a rescue, even if at liberty to move.
He did not return to his sleep, from whicb
be had M n aroused, but sat moody and
silent by himself, and not over twenty feel
away was the dead man covered with a
"Look here, captain," said my fellow
scout as we moved up to him after a brief
talk between ourselves, "while yon ain't
got force 'nuff to drive these reds off and
bring tbe fam'ly out it seems as if a coupU
of men might help to stand the Injuns oil
till Custer comes up with the rest of tbe
"How would you do it?" asked the cap
tain. "Waal, purd and I kin make the distance
afore daylight. If the fam'ly has bin wiped
out we'll come back; if not we'll try to git
in and help 'em hold the fort till the reds
git tired or Custer drives 'em off."
The captain took five minutes to think it
over and then gave us permission to go.
The Indians had overreached themselves
in their attack on the cabin that is, they
had betrayed their presence by firing upon
the land looker too soon. As his horse
dashed off with him the Applegates bar
ricaded doors and windows and prepared
to fight to the end. Tbe cabin was con
structed of los, sods and stones a tem
porary shelter to be replaced the next yeai
by something more pretentions. It stood
on a knoll, with clear ground all around it.
Fifty feet from the back door was the
spring from which water was obtained.
A mile from the house we turned out
horses loose to find their way back to
camp, and then crept forward. We felt)
certain that Indians were about, but we ;
reached the cabin without seeing or hear j
ing from them. Lying flat upon the earth J
thirty feet away we cautiously signaled j
and repeated until thae inside were aware '
of our presence. They were naturally sum-1
picious of trickery, and it was a quarter of .
an hour later before we got into the house. I
In addition to what the land looker had
told us, we found that Mrs. Applegate hal i
been killed by a bullet which had entered j
one of the portholes, and another hud j
struck the husband in the fleshy part of '
the leg and inflicted a painful wound. In 1
the darkness we could not see each other's
faces, and our conversation was iu whis- ;
pers. When daylight came the body ol !
Mrs. Applcgate was laid on the bed and'
covered np. and we dressed the man's!
wound to his great benefit. The sister-in- j
law was named Lucy Kogers. She wu-s a '
surprise to me. She had the voice and
bearing of a horn lady, and I never saw a l
handsomer irl. Such a girl ought to have I
been lying in a dead faint or walking i
altout and wringing her hanrls and nnnerv- j
ing the others. Instead of that she was
ca.'m and cool and rather inclined to taks 1
charge of affairs. The boy was only a boy J
in years, but when I looked him over 1 1
knew that he would count for a man in the j
attack which we might soon look. for.
"Now, here's the situation," said old (
Bill as daylight made our surroundings'
plain. "Thar' are five of us here. We've
got three Winchesters, a cavalry carbine ;
and three revolvers aud plenty of ammtini- i
tion fur all. We kin stand off a hundred j
fur a couple of days, and nobody need h
acart. How's the grub and water?" )
"We have plenty to eat," replied the.
girl, "but the water is about gone. I am !
now going to the spring with the two
pails. Yon two scouts must cover me with
The barricade was removed from the
back door, and she walked out without the
slightest hesitation. She made her first
trip without incident. As she was filling
the pails a second time the Indians discov
ered her. Not knowing of our presence.
four warriors rose up from behind a ridge
forty rods away aud ran to capture her.
Bill and I were lying on the ground half
way between the house and the spring.
She heard the redskins yell, and she knew
they were coming for her, but she filled
the pails just as coolly as if there wasn't a
red within fifty miles. She was on her way
back to the house and the nearest Indian
was within a hundred feet of her when we
opened fire. Six warriors had been shel
tered behind the ridge. All were moving
down upon her when we jumped up. I tell
you only what you can find in the military
records of that date when I say that we
knocked over four of the six offhand and
wounded a fifth, though he got away. The
six had been left there for the night prob
ably, as we saw no others. While the girl
was carrying water we stripped the dead
of their arms and ammunition. We got
one Winchester and three percussion rifles,
and one of the warriors had a navy revol
ver. Kverytning wnicn couiu De 6 pared to
bold water was filled. Not an Indian wts
to be seen at this time, but we had no idea
of leaving the place. It might be an boor ;
before any for showed up, but then we
would have otr hands fulL As the girl
finished her teak she came to us at the
door and said:
"There ia a apade. Dig a grave close td
the house for my dead sister. We may
be cooped up here for three or four days
It was the thing to do, but neither of us
would have dared soggest it. While Bill
used tbe spade I brought more water from
the spring and drenched the house and tha
short, dry grass around it. Everything
which would barn was thoroughly sonked.
Applegate sat on the floor, with a cbaif
acting as a prop for his back, while the
boy watched through a porthole at the
other end of the cabin.
"Henry." said the girl aa she beckoned
mi to enter the cabin, "we are going to
bury Delia just outside. Charlie (to the
boy), go aud kiss your mother."
We helped her to wrap the body in a
qailt, and then we carried it to where the
husband sat, aad he kissed tbe dead face
and covered his own with his hands.
Lucy's face betrayed the torture of bet
soul, but she shed no tears. It was a shal
low grave, aud the body was soon hidden
from sight. When tbe earth had been
trodden down the girl said:
"While I am preparing breakfast do yoa
men tear down that stable and bring np
such material as we may want to
strengthen the cabin."
It was a rough shed of poles and thatch,
bat a good portion of it was of valoe to
ns. We chinked np many crevices between
the logs, made new portholes, and when
through with our work we had made a
fort of the shanty. As we snatched a bite
to eat the girl stood at the door and
watched. We had not finished when she
stepped back and quietly said:
"They are coming a full 300! There
is no hurry yet. While you eat I will
distribute the guns and ammunition.
Henry, let me draw you back a little. You
can load the guns for the rest, of us to fire.
Charlie, take this Indian's Winchester in
place of the carbine. I'll put the car
tridges here beside you. One of you men
take tbe front door, the other the rear.
Now, then, we are all ready for them!"
There were, as was afterward known, 238
Indians in the force which appeared.
Within twenty-four hours they had mas
sacred about twenty white people and
burned two stage stations. Our force, so
far as they knew, was composed of only
two men and a young woman. Their con
tempt for us was shown in their first
movement. Twenty young bucks, anx
ious to distinguish themselves, were se
lected to- attack. They divided to take
the shanty front and rear. They laid their
rifles on the grass, drew their tomahawks,
and at a signal came rushing upon us
with the usual accompaniment of whoops
"In case either of you need a fresh gun
call out," said the girl as Bill and I stood
As Bill always asserted when relating
our adventure around tbe campfire. it was
like sitting down to a good dinner. We
began firing as soon as they were in range.
Each of us hail a dead rest, and it was no
trick at all to send a bullet where you
wanted to. Not one of them on my side
got nearer t han twenty feet. The fire was
so hot that those unhurt shied off.
"Four down on your side and five on
his," said the girl as she came over to me,
"and I think t hey are all dead. That 's good
shooting. They will now make a general
attack. Charlie, lie ready there, and I will
take this other side. You men keep your
places as yon are."
By calling out to each other we all kept
informed as to the general movements of
the band. They held a council and then
divided into fenr bands. That meant an
attack on four sides of the shantv at once.
and we placed the spare arms where they
would be the most convenient. Each band
marched olf to its station, and men from
each gathered bundles of dry grass. As
the signal for a rush was given these bun
dles were ignited. Just what happens at
such a time is hard to remember aud de
scribe afterward. The diu made by over
200 redskins, each yelling at the top of his
voice, was something awful. Each had
his rifle and kept firing, and there was no
checking such a rush. I thought they
would lift the shanty high in the air as
they swept up. They pulled at the logs,
battered the Imrricades and mounted to
tbe roof, but our steady fire was too much
for them. When they fell back a score of
bundles of hay were burning against the
logs, anil they doubtless thought us
doomed. The water I had thrown alout
saved ns, however. Each bundle burned
out without damage to the shanty. When
the smoke blew away the sight was one to
be rememliered. In retreating they had
carried off their dead and wounded as far
as possible, but there were twenty-three
dead still lyins around, and the dry grass
was so staired and smeared with blood
and there were so many bloody trails criss
crossing that it seemed like a map drawn
in red ink. In that five minutes we killed
and wounded more Indians than the Sev
enth cavalry could show for a year. Bill
and I were shaking hands and yelling when
we suddenly discovered that Applegate
was dead. A stray bullet had entered the
room and passed through his head. As
we looked about we found the boy Charlie
on the bed with the girl binding np a
wonnd in his cheek.
"It isn't very serious." she said, as we
came forward, "but will disable him for a
time. We Lave given the redskins a bad
dose, but they may come again."
"Did you know that that lie was dead?"
I asked as I pointed to tile body of Apple
gate, "Yes, some time ago, poor fellow!" she
answered. "What are the Indians doing
No baud of redskins ever suffered as
great a loss at the hands of four people.
The rapidity of our f re leu them to believe
that there were a Bcore of soldiers in the
shanty and that they had been tricked.
After about an hour a warrior approached
with a flag of truce and demanded a sur
render. Our reply was a bullet, which
whizzed close enough to scare him. About
thirty men then kept up a long range fire
on the front of the house; while half a
dozen tried to set fire to tbe back roof by
means of burning arrows. Nothing came
of it, and after parading up and down and
wasting a great deal of ammunition the
main body retreated about sundown, leav
ing perhaps a score of warriors to main
tain a desultory fire and prevent our es
cape. We were so well satisfied that the
fight was over that we simply maintained a
lookout at each door None of us slept.
The boy was in too much pain, and tbe
rest of us had no desire. An hour, after
sunrise 200 cavalrymen came galloping
over the prairie to our rescue, scattering
the redskins like rabbits, and our work
was done. I looked to see the young wom
an break down thc-D, but she did not. She
requested that another grave might be
dag and the body of the husband given
burial. Then she packed up a bundle of
clothing, secured a few mementoes, aitd
was ready to go. After three or four days
she and the boy were sent away to Hays
City, and I have never seen either since.
- Two Tear after tbe event, however, BIB
one day shoved a photograph under my
nose. It was that of a feminine ehap with
his hair parted dead center and a baby
look about his mouth.
"Who is it?" I asked.
. "Her husband."
"Why, Lucy's, yoa darned idiot! Tee,
sir, that ar gal has gone and done got mar
ried to this thing to a feller who'd hex
fainted dead away atbearin them redskins

THE SHADOW IN THE MOONLIGHT.
The Fa mf a Man Who Blaaphaamod
Yoa eoaldn't stop a man from staking
oat a claim if the ground was not already
covered, and so, though none of as liked
the looks of this new chap who came in on
as at Strawberry bill, we coaldnt gainsay
his staking oat and putting up a rude
shanty. We soon diseovaed that his looki
did not belie hiin. You'd expect to find
some bad men in the mines, but this man,
whom we soon nicknamed "Satan," was
worse than any doeen of them put together.
The way he would curse God and man wai
something awful to hear, and we some
times wondered why the wrath of heaven
was not visited upon him. We ostracised
and outlawed him, bat he would not go
away. Only the fear that we would string
him up kept him from doing murder, fot
be had a temper like a wild beast.
One day, after dinner and after a spell at
cursing and reviling, he went down into
his claim and fired a blast, which blinded
him forever. Then he became worse than
before. His cursing and raving became so
constant that we built him a shanty on the
rocks half a mile away and led him to it.
Three times a day a man was sent up with
his meals, and this continued for weeks
and weeks. For a long time there was m
change, either in his health or disposition.
Then he began to grow thin and wan and
to cease cursing, and one evening he asked
of the man who brought his meal:
"Jim, is thar a trail leadin np here from
"No," was the reply.
"If anybody was corn in down the trail
from Top Notch how would they hit me?"
"Why, strike across about forty rods
"And the door faces that way?"
"How's the nights now, Jim?"
"Full moon and bright as day."
That was about all that was said, but I
wish to tell yoa here t hat when "Satan" was
blinded his eyelids were closed fast. He
could never open them after that, except he
used his fingers. There was an injury to
the muscles controlling them as well as to
his vision. Day and night were alike to
him. On that very night, about half an
bonr after midnight, a prowling wolf dis
turbed otir camp and routed out three or
fonr men. They were driving tbe beast
away, when they looked np and saw a
slip.dow on the Top Notch trail. It was as
lipht as day, and tnere was no qnestion in
their minds. It was a queer shadow. It
had the shape of a little old woman bent
over with age, and it floated about in an
uncertain way. The three or four men
passed from tent to tent, and before long
sixty or seventy of us were out and had our
eyes fastened on the queer thing. Bv and
by it floated over the rocks and shrubs to
ward "Satan's" shanty, and every man of
us followed it. to the door and beyond with
"It's a woman an old woman!" whis
pered a score of men.
"But what can a woman be doing here?"
One or t wo suggested t hat somebody go
up to tbe shanty, but no one volunteered.
There was something so queer and un
canny that nolxxly felt like making a
closer investigation. It was perhaps ten
minutes after the figure entered the shanty
before it reappeared. It p:issed over the
same ground, in the same peculiar way,
and as it reached the trail it halted
for n moment as if looking back. Our
eyes followed it up the plain, broad trail
um il it grew fainter and fainter and final
"Wlitit did it look like to you?" asked one
man of another.
"A little old woman, bent and feeble,"
was the reply.
All had seen alike. You may ask why
some one didn't pursue. No man bad ever
seen .1 living woman on that trail, or ex
pcclcdto. Tl. is was a woman, and yet it
was not. It- presence cast an awe upon
everybojy. Some of the men returned to
bed. and others gnthcred in groups and
talk-.-d in v.iiisjers until daylight came.
Tiiere were fifty inen who went up in a
crowd to "Satan's' shanty. They found
him fully dressed and seated in the door,
ami he had been dead for hours. Perhaps
you t-xpected that, but let me tell you his
eyes were wide open, bis vision seemed to
have returned, and he was looking across
to Top Notch tr:iil just as a living man
would aye, looking and looking, and his
face bad softened and a smile bad crept
over it and been held there by the fingers
"It was the spirit of his mother!" whis
pered the men as they stood and looked
into the face of the dead man, and so we
have ever believed. M. Quad.
