Kodaks at a Kallruad Wreck.
Superintendent llusted of tho Cincinnati,
Hamilton and Dayton doesn't like the
k<,:.lak, and his experience of the last few
days does not lessen his dislike. Wln-n the
wreck occurred at Oxford the "Kodak
fiends" were out iv force to make sketches
of the scene. As a business proposition Mr.
iiusted objected to photography of the all air
buiDg sent broadcast over tne country, and
many of the Kodak manipulators consented
to hia request .nnd left the place.
One chap with a flue instrument would
not listen to anytliinu and insisted ou taking
a picture. At last the 6uperiatendeut told
him he was trespassing on the company's
grounds, and the man with the Kodak re
marked that h<j would co an adjoining field
und secure a view. The Superintendent
told him that he would be trespassing there
This made the chap augry. Mr. liusted
is uu exceedingly mild-mannered uian, but
ho grew warm under tho collar. "1 have
tried to treat you as a gentleman," he ex
claimed, "but you wont let me. Now I'll
treat you like a lough. If you attempt to
mako a picture of this wrifk I'll smnsh
Hint Kodak over your infernal head."
The Kodak fiend evidently believed that
liusted would make his word good, for he
went back to Oxford on a work train.
While Superintendent Ilust»d was thus en
gaged. Chid Knziueer i'orter aud his assist
ants wer« chasing Kodak tietids over the
surroundiuK country with clubs. The wary
meu with the cameras didn't hold choice
points of viaw, but it's fair to guess that
they are loaded with snap shots at that

of the family, and here the simple but beauti
ful burial service of the Episcopal Church
was read by the rector. Rev. IJobert Ritchie.
A urayer followed ami the service was over.
There was no music. There was no unusual

load of the most beautiful of floral pie ces,
but was not opened after it left the house.
A huge Moral cannon, a beautiful column of
chrysanthemums, a pillar of smilax aud

A SCENE IN COUNT.
There was quite a circus in Judge Ells
worth's department yesterday over the Pied
mont Hotel suit of James B. Marvin vs. K.
1). black. The defendant's answer, among
other tilings, alleges lhat whatever interest
Marvin held in tin- property was lost to him
by the sale, on execution on December tith,
in the suit of J. K. Neal vs. J. B. Marvin,
by Sheriff Hale to iL J. Baldwin for StiU.
The effort of the plfttnttff to have this struck
out was unsuccesslul. Then an effort to in
troduce an affidavit of Under Sheriff W. S.
Jiarlow that he only sold the one-third in
terest of Marvin in the bur fixtures, hou.-e
--liuld aud kitchen furniture, etc., and did not
M-ll the leasehold interest, evoked a long
argument, aud the. motion was disallowed.
On the fading of the original return, al
though not in evidence, the Judge suggested
that it did not show the sale ot leasehold in
terest, lie then counse ed a stipulation,
which the attorneys finally agreed to, that
the •Sheriff only sold to Baldwin the
articles mentioned in the return, leaving
the leasehold matter to be determined
iv the argument. This was a practical vic
tory for W. W. Foote. who passed some
not very complimentary remarks about
"Lucky " Baldwin in his presence and hear
ln« about appearing in the case, intimating
that he would pve him a roasting when he
came to the argument, and stating that he
did not care how big a man lie is or how
much money he had. It seemed that Bald
win has tasen a jr.-nt deal ol' interest in the
matter since Black has been sueil, aud has
been putting up the money. He also paid
Black's court reporters for yesterday. The
residents of Piedmont do not waul the hotel
run as it has l>een recently, aud are much
interested in the outcome of the suit. The
argomeiit of the case went over at 5 o'clock

The Judson Ironworks were closed down
yesterday morning for repairs. The rolling
mills were repaired during the first week of
the strike, and are in need of nothing but
iron-workers at the present time. To-day
will be the last granted by the Council of
Federated Trades of San Francisco for the
Judson Company to settle the strike. The
boycott on the products of the mills is
threatened if the company does not settle
the strike to the satisfaction of tho strikers.
The strikers are very indunaut over the
discharge, by Superintendent Beauregnrd,
of one I'om Cator, a laborer at the iron
works. His brother, George Cator, U s
striker, and the workmen say that Tom was
discharged because lia is George's brother.
COBRA AND TIC POLONGA
Deadly Fend Between the Most
Venomous Serpents in Ceylon.
From ages past the susceptibility of snakes
to the influence of music has been fully
recognized, and it would be iuterestinK to
know how many varieties acknowledge its
power. In Ceylon the natives say that
only two— and they the two most venomous,
the cobra aud the tic polonga — can be
charmed. The former, the hooded or spec
tacled snake, everyone has heard of; the
latter is not so well known out of the isl
and, and is a far more deadly and dangerous
foe. The uatives hold the cobr.t iv the
highest estimation, and look upon it as the
king of snakes— the Tamil name for it
being, iv fact, "uulla parmbu," or "good
suake," nnd I think it is an admitted fact
that It will seldom. If ever, attack anyone
uriprevoked. I have myself seen cobras
tinder many circumstance?, and although I
have conscientiously destroyed everyone
that I have been able to. I have no hesita
tion in saying that they are not dangerous
unless disturbed. In proof of this
I wjuld quote the case of a pair
that occupied a hole in a clump
of oleanders in a certain garden for several
years. Mo one ever disturbed them, and
they sunned themselves where they pleased,
and the gardener rather looked ii]>on them
as an additional attraction to tho place.
They used to eat squirrels, young birds, aud
anything else tbat came in their way, but
never attempted to do auy harm, and re
ni.lined unmolested us long a< I knew the
place, and probably mixed an interesting
family meanwhile. Unlike, theeobra the tic
polouga is always ready to attack on the
slightest provocation, and as it inhabits
many localities— some being found In shrubs
and trees, soule in s;ras-y waterways, aud
others invariably in the vicinity of foot
paths--it is more often met with, and is, I
think, responsible for mostof the fatal cases
of snakebite that happen from time to time.
This ditfereuce in the habits of the two
snakes is well kuowu to the natives, and is
the subject of one of the Singhalese fables,
Which is as follows:
One very dry year, when little lain fell,
when rivers Had dwindled into a silver
thread, when tanks were b.tked hard aud
brown and wells and water-courses were
dried up, a poionga, suffering atonies from
thirst and faint from the overpowering
heat, met a cobra looking very lively ami
refreshed. "Have you fouud water "any
where?" gasped the polonga. The other
said "Yes." "Where, oh, where is it?
Tell me, 1 implore you, for I hiu dying of
thirst!" said Uie polonga. Tha cobra re
plied, "I cannot tell y t v, unless you prom
ise to do no harm to any living thing that
may be beside the water." "As for that,"
replied the polonga, " I would promise any
thing so that 1 might queuch this intolerable
lliir>l. And he gave a solemn promise
"Well, then," said the cobra, "beyond
those bushes is a lar^e earthen pun of water,
in which a chilli U piayiug. Go and drink
from it, but at your peril do not harm
tlie child." So saying they parted. The
cobrn, afler going a little wuy, began to dis
trust the polonga, knowing the latter's
treacherous disposition and rugged temper,
and turned to iollow him. It- arrived too
lute. The polonga had not only drunk of
the water, but crept into tho pan, v> here the
child began to play with him. Ou this he
«rew violently augry, bit the child with all
its force, so violently, imletd, tbat the in
fant died iv a few minutes. The cobra, in
hot and fiery inuienation, attacked the po
longa auu punished him seveiely, biting off
a piece of his tail. Hence to this day all
polongas have blunt tails. Ever since co
bras and pulongas have b"eu at ddidly feud.
They are the most vcuomous serpeuta in
Ceylon. When people hate one another
mortally they are said proverbially to be
like cobra and polonga.— V. Filz-Hoy Dixon

A CAMP QUARREL.
And It Was All Abont a Yonng
Van Who Was in Lore.
Trifle* That Sometimes Came the Beit of
Friendi to Become Enemies -From Beflee
tion to Reason, Reason to Repentance.
For two or three days after the camp was
finished and Peter had gone Xed was in
capital spirits and joined me in hunting and
prospecting with sportsman! ike zeaL Then,
as the last day of October came on dull,
cold and cloudy, with indications of snow,
his spirits flagged, he moped about without
the heart to go a mile Irom camp, and
gave unmistakable signs of homesickness.
Here was ■ nice fix. If his heart
failed him so early in the season
when we had everything comfortable
about iv. with fish and game as plenty as
we could ask or expect, liow would it be in
the dead of whiter with the snow several
feet deep and wood to cut, split and pack to
camp, when the mercury was at zero ? We
had made rather extensive preparations for
an all-winter trip, had "declared our inten
tions " rather audibly to all our acquaint
ances and friends, had dwelt on the pleas
ures of hnnter life and communion with na
ture to a garrulous extent, had promised to
add important facts to the natural history
of the country, and had (at least one of us
had) takeu several quires of foolscap into
camp on which to record these facts and
keep a general summary of our Crusoe-like
proc-edings, for the benefit of any one who
chose to be bored with the reading thereof.
All this and much more I pressed on
Ned's consideration in a rather extended
lecture, and he took it all meekly— did not
offer a word in rebuttal until I chanced to
remark that "a man who would leave such
a camp aud such hunting grounds for a gig
gling, apple-faced girl, onght to trade his
ritle for a set of knitting-needles and join a
si-wing society." This brought matters to
a focus. "I might abuse him to my heart's
content, but I shouldn't abuse a decent girl
on his account; he v/as his own master;
when he wanted my advice he wonld ask it,
etc., etc., etc. In short, we Quarreled. It
was a foolish thing to do, and we have both
been heartily ashamed ol it for years;
nevertheless, quarrel we did, and nearly
came to blows. I made some rather pointed
observations on bisswoad men generally
sud lovesick spyouuys in particular, wtiica
Ned took to heart; aud
HE GAVE HIS OPINION
Pretty freely concerning "bush vngaboDds,
who were of no account in society, ..nd the
height of whose ambition was hunting aud
lishing. For his part, he expected to do
something in the world besides hunt and
" Ah, really? Marry a farm anil tannery,
perhaps Join tho church, and become a stuiup
candidate for deacon," I retorted.
Ned thought it quite possible. "There
was a scrt of respectability about farms
aud tanneries which was not the case with
hunting that he ever heard of."
I advised him, if he was sn out of sorts
with hunting, to go home by alLmexns; also
1 suggested the propriety of taking In rb tea
and Ills feet iv warm water regu
larly. With this aud th« precaution of flan
nel night-raps 1 thought he might inaimse
to pull througU the winter. 1 really intend
ed, when I began, to give the particulars of
our quarrel verbatim ot literatim as nearly
as 1 could remember, but it was so con
foundedly ridiculous that I am getting
Let it suffice, that after bandying sarcastic
hits to the best of our ability for some time,
one of us save the lie. There was an in
stantaneous " recognition of belligerents,"
a mutual gr.isping lor reciprocal windpipes,
a mutual missing of the saute and a seizing
of coals and Collars instead, a violent shak
ing aud hustling of some seconds' duration,
in which I, being much the lightest, got the
worst of it, and we stood still gnz'mg defi
antly in each other's laces, two of the big
gest fouls that ever shouldered a rifle.
1 wish 1 could add that we shook hands
nnd laughed at our foolishness, as we ought
to Imve done, but we did uot. 1 knew that
Ned wa>< dying for a slant of Ilannah Need
hum's pretty face, and that nothing else
nilfd him. He knew that I was aware of
this, and also tbat I despised love-sirki ess
beyond auy other weakness or illusss that
flesh h heir to; likewise he ffel t my
remarks ou his duX inea, aud I
FELT X TKIFLE SOliE
At the unmerciful shaking 1 had got, so it
happened lhat neither of us chose to make
any remarks of a conciliatory nature, but
Ned commenced packing his knapsack at
once, whilu 1 watched the operation in surly
There were two adjuncts 'to out] camp,
which I ought to have mentioned before;
these were a mongrul dog, which Ned had
seen proper to bring with him, and a haudy
little dug-out or log canor, which Peter had
mysteriously brought to light from some
hidden recess on the day after our arrival in
camp. The dog had turned a promising
venture for still-hunting— as almost auy dog
will when taken out every day and properly
Instructed— while the caooe w"as indispensa
ble for trapping, fishing, or crossiug the
1 had opposed the dog at first, but finding
he was to be an inmate of the camp had
finally taken him in baud for a course of in
struction, aud as he was not only eager and
plucky, but tractable, had ended by takiug a
fancy for him.
When Ned had eot his hardtnek, tobneco,
blanket, rifle, hatchet, and a pint flask ol
mm all in marching order lie led tiie dog os
tentatiously into the cabin, sprung the snap
Ol the, chain into a ring on the collar and
then marched stiffly toward me, holding
a cent ou his curved forefinger with
his thumb-nail under the edee of it, saving,
"This is for the canoe— bends or t.ils?" 1
took at once, and as the cent spun high in
the »ir said, '•Heads." Down it came nud
heads it was. The canoe wa* miuc.
"As to the dog," said I, "if he is worth
anything to yon take him along. 1 can get
along without him very well."
"He is worth nothing toaw," said "Ned
with a majestic air. "If you don't want
him shoot him. lam done with hunting."
He slung his knapsack with great deliber
ation, whistling all the while, then filled a
a pipe leisurlv. lit it with a friction match
wnich he ignited by rubbing ou his trowsers
leg, shouldered his heavy single-barreled
TBSonat his hack on tiie cAsrp.
I watched him until his gray coat tails dis
appeared dowi» the trail and then went into
the shanty, built a rousing fire, caressed the
dog, wiped the. rifle and tried to convince
myself that I didu't care— in fact was giid
ho was gone. I tried the quarrel over axaiu
in my own mind, and made out a wonder
fully clear case for myself. I took the shak
ing into consideratian and waxed Irate
exceedingly, but it would not do. The little
monitor which lurks iv the bosom of every
decent man espoused Ned's cause, l-emindiug
me ot many little items, such as bitter
sneers, unkind remarks and surly sarcasms,
offered to an old and tried friend, for
what? Just because he had not the heart
to enter Into my schemes with spirit and
ardor; because I mistrusted him of giving
way to a boyish lovesick whim, and wanting
to go bark. What then? Was he not his
own maatur? Had he uot proved himself on
many occasions a reliable friend, aplucky
hunter and a true-hearted fellow? Audi
had taken the liberty of calling him iv plain
words a booby I a lovesick spoon, and no

thermometer sank rapidly from wrath to re

the more I grew ashamed of the foolish

It» Surrender— A Reminiscence of Paris
Next day (May 22, 1871) it was generally
known that the "Versaillais," as they were
called, had entered the capital. Then opened
the gloomiest page in the history of France.
On one side were the vancias of the com
mune, doing their best to burn Paris to the
ground, murdering innocent hostages, un
chaining all the horrors of civil war; exhib
iting all the heroism, every act of ferocity
and cowardice, into which human nature
when unrestrained will rush. On the other
side were tlie troops, irritated by the strug
gle, humiliated by the duty thai li'id f.illeu
upon them, exaspernted by so many horrors.
Torrents of fratricidal blood deluged the
pavement of the great French city. While
the struggle was going on, there could be
sepn arriving at Versailles, escorted by the
soldiers, gangs of piisoners, the savage
rabble who Had plunder?d aud spread con
flagration, and who. in blind obedience to
their leaders, had committed unparalleled
acts of barbarism. They arrived on the
great Place d'Armes, under a bright and
broiling sun. The perspiration ran from
their faces, blackened with gunpowder nnd
dust Their cloths were in tatters. smeUiua
of smoke v.d petroleum. There were wo
men, with features distorted by hatred and
anger; precocious children, casting a
stealthy look aronnd them : and old men,
crusheOJ>y defeat, with patches of clotled
blood on their white hair ana beards, mark
ing them out as apostles of revolution. Some,
who had been jolted amidst the lumber
heaped on the carts, were taken out and
put flat on the ground. They, lay stiff
and motionless, with their eyes wide
and staring, as if, after a loog fit of
madness they had lost all consciousness of
an outer world. The captives were separa
ted into groups, and sent to improvised
prisons, where an attempt was made to
shelter this army of disorder. They had
added shame to defeat, who had with fire
and sword ravaged Paris. They had dove
what no foreign enemy had dared to do,
inscribed " Delenda est Carthago " on its
walls. A few years only have passed, and
yet these things are already forgotten. The
authors, the instigators, the meu who took
part in these most horrible of crimes, raise
their head*, and claim the inner side of
the pavement. They make a boast of
patriotism of which they dare to as
sume the monopoly. But those who
lived In the midst of these horrors,
those who saw into their depths and wit
nessed the wide-spread misery and ngony
they caused, have preserved a fresh aud
never-to-be-eilaced remembrance of the feel
ings they aroused in every healthy and blu
est mind. It will be for the historian to tell
with calm serenity what occurred on those
momentous days ot grief and discournye
itiei.t. It lins been a great source of regret
to me tu.it ciruumstauces retained me at
Versailles, mid tliat I could not from day to
day watch close at hand the execrable mis
deed?, the infamous enterprises qt these
isnoraut reformers, who, tor the enjoyment
of a temporary triumph, gave the reins to
human passion without examining the prob
lems they raised, aud without even makiug
an atteuut to solve than.— From "Another
Chapter of My Memoirs," by Mr. de Blow

A I>eaperadu'B Career Closed for Awhile
by a Six.Year Sentence.
In the District Court to-day, Dick Rogers,
a cowboy of 19, was tried on a charge of
assault, found guilty and sentenced to six
years in tiie penitentiary. The offense was
committed September 2d last, when ltogers
stepped upon ihe depot platform at the Hot
Springs station and emptied his revolver at
a couch loaded with passengers, just leav
ing for the city. A lady passenger was dan
gerously wounded, but afterward recovered.
Rogers immediately escaped. At one time
be was corralled among some rocks at the
foot of a precipice. He succeeded in staud
iug off the otlii-ers for four days, but on the
morning of the fifth it was found that he
had sealed the cliff and had started across
the mountains toward Logan. He was
in his shirt-sleeves and spent several uights
thus at the snow line. His flight across the
mountain was indicated to the officers by a
flock of buzzards, which followed him for
days, expecting to get a chance to pick nis
bones. Rogers cursed the birds and threw
rocks at them, but the? stuck to him. Near
Logan he entered a farm-house to get
something to eat, but was betrayed aud
He was placed in the County Jail at
Ocdt-n, and, while awaiting trial, found

He traveled by nigiit, and was captured
eight rtays after his escape in the extreme
