English regiment, an old campaigner,
became involved in a difficulty with

The colonel, being the chal

weapons and elected -that the affair
should occur in a darkened room. The

square, closed every crevice that would
admit light, placed thnir men in cor

old major. "Had you been standing
here when those shots were fired you
would have been killed." The culprit
was compelled to admit that be had

the major. "Hold on, major," said the

The drunkest irunk I ever experienced
was the result of drinking water. I
was skylarkin around down among
the Sierra Ma ire Mountains, looking
for a long-lost Spanish miue and mak
ing an all-aroi nd fool of myself for the
behoof of half a dozen Mexican niozos,
when I discovered a little spring bub
bling out of the side of a mountain.
The rivulet was no thicker than jour
little finger, but was icy cold. I start
ed to till my cup, but one of the Mex
icans cautioned me not to drink it.
He said it was 'devil water,' and would
make my head swim and cause my
legs to grow weak. I questioned him
closely and learned that the effects
produced by the water were very
similar to tho;e resulting from the
absorption of t x much bourbon. He
said that the Indians drauk it for kid
ney troubles. I thought that if it did
nd worse than make drunk I would
tackle it, and t did. It tasted like a
very poor qual ty of gin dilated with
soap-suds, but was so cold.tbat.heatPil '
as 1 was, I cou d not let it alone. I
suppose that I must have drunk near
ly a pint of the stuff during the hour
we lingered in the vicinity, lsoon be
gan to feel the effects of it. First I
required one nnzo to hold me on my
burro, then two found it a difficult job.

Teii minutes will be quite sufficient
for clearing the atmosphere. Now
close the windows and allow the room
to become thoroughly warmed, that
you may not experience a chill while
taking a rub down. Prepare a big
bowl of tepid water, into which you
besprinkle a sni ill quantity of ammo

which is much better than a sponge,

grasping a corner in each hand, give
