THE CRY OF DEATH.
It Awoko tho Sleoplnsr Damp to
tho Proasnoa of Dantrnr.
Only the Chirping of a Cricket IId DU-
turbed the Unlet or the Mcht Tf hen
the Sentinel Saw Dark Spot,
Shot, and Saved 111. Friend.
Not an Indian had been seen all the
afternoon no signs had been met with,
writes a contributor to the Detroit Free
The rido had led over ground so
sterile that even sage-brush could not
grow there across dry ravines over
out-crop of flinty rock from one rldgo
to another, until at last we camo to tho
Loup river and went Into camp In a
scattered drove. No signs of Indian
there. As the setting sun flooded tbe
earth with its golden light we could seo
for miles and miles in every direction.
No sign ot danger.
Night comes down as softly as a child
closes its eyes in sleep, and tho light
breeze from the north brings a film ot
white cloud to hide a portion ot the
stars. A sentinel is posted on the bank
c! the stream-! second to tho cast a
third to the nest. It sterna almost ab
surd to take theso precautions. The
crickots sing under the stones field mice
run about in the grass the waters ot the
Loup sing a peaceful song as they flow
past our camp.
No Indians no signs. It is such calm,
quiet nights as this which have lulled
the tired emigrant to his last sleep on
earth. Seeing no Indians, ho has argued
that none were lurking and watching.
We who had fought the red man from
Fort Kearney to tho source of the Pow
der river know him better. The very
absence ot his footprints is a menace.
The quietness ot the night is a warning
to be heeded.
At ten o'clock everybody but the
sentinels is fast asleep. Some of the
horses are lying at full length, so burled
in slumber that their heavy breathing
can be hcjrd for yards away. At eleven
o'clock all is quiet. Even the crickets
havo almost given o'er their noise.
Fleecy clouds nowcovr the whole heav
ens, making the night no darker, but
more uncertain. As tho oye looks off
over tho level plain tbe shadows take on
a different shape and have more life.
Midnight! The three sentinels softly
enter camp, bond over tbe sleepers, and
five minutes later the guard has been
chanced. Those who slept are now as
watchful as foxes; those who watched
aro in tbe land of dreams.
Half-past twelve! No sound now but
the purling waters, and their monotony
would close the eyes ot a sentinel who
One o'clock! Now there Is the quiet
ness of a graveyard. Men and horses
seem to be dead. The sentinel to the
east gives a sudden start. He would
deny it on his oath, but for an Instant he
slept, lie shakes himself and looks over
the camp. All is peace, but he has re
ceived a shock which makes his heart
beat faster. Ills stand is at tho foot ot
a cottonwood. Ho sinks down on his
knees and peers out from either side of
the trunk. Nothing in sight nothing
but the dark shadows cast by the clouds,
"Chirp! Chirp Chirp!"
A cricket begins his song again after
a long silence. It seems loud enough to
awaken every sleeper, but it is not. It
is very low and quiet. It reaches the
ears of only one sentinel.
"Watch! Watch! Watch!".
His heart leaps to his mouth. The
words come to him as plain as It spoken
by some buman being. Watch what?
Watch where? Watch for who?
"Watch! Watch! Watch!"
The sentinel's eye falls upon a dark
spot on the grass a hundred feet away.
It is tho shadow of a cloud. The darker
spot in the center Is a rock lifting its
head out of the earth. He noticed it be
fore darkness came. He can see nothing
moving there Is no danger.
"Look! Look! Look!"
Rls heart jumps again and his eyes go
back to the dark spot. They cling there
for two or three minutes, during which
time the cricket Is absolutely silent.
Did something move? Is the black spot
nearer than it was?
"Creeping! Crawl'ng! ComingP-
So shouts the cricket, and now tho
sentinel is sure the dark spot has ad
vanced. Ot course It has! It has also
changed the line of its advance. With
bated breath he waits and watches. The
man who disturbs camp without good
cause will be taunted with cowardice.
Aht it does move! The black spot Is
sot now over fifty feet away.
"Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!"
The sentinel softly pulls back tho
hammer of his heavy carbine, raises
the weapon quiotly to his shoulder, and
the loud report is followed by a cry sd
long-drawn, so wild and weird and foil
of death that no one forgets it for a
month. There is wild confusion for a
moment, and then everyone is ready.
"What is it?"
Three or four men advance to tho
dark spot to find the body of an Indian
stretched at full length on the earth,
shot through the breast. Eighty rods
away are half a hundred fierce warriors,
waiting in the darkness for the spy to
return and report. At the sound of his
death-cry they mount their poalei tad

Them: is great flutter among the Ger
man girls on account of a recent order
which excludes candidates from being
confirmed if not dressed entirely in
black. From time immemorial white
has been tho color for confirmation, as
well as for wedding gowns. The new
regulation emanates partly from Ger
man thrift, which considers that poor
peoplo can not afford tho expense of
white confirmation dresses for which
they have no other nse, and partly ec
clesiastical authority based upon his
torical supposition that true Protestant
ism Is always connected with black.
Some girls who presented themselves In
white and were refused have aroused a
great deal of bitter feeling between the
clergy and the people.
Loxdox women do not seem to be
what Jennie June calls "clubablo"
women, for, notwithstanding the in
creasingly prominent place they occupy
in sport and recreation, their amuse
ments are as a rule unorganized. The
Row Is each season crowded with eques
triennes, and in the winter, too, when
tho riding is something besides "gen
teel cantering." All manner of smart
ponies and carts and jaunting cars go
the pace continually, and last season a
lady "tooted" a four-in-hand each day
around tho drive, her horses held splen
didly in hand. Tho prcjudico against
tho cycle for ladles Is fast dying out,
and though at present not so general in
London as among the provinces, one
may expect soon to seo it command the
s'.tuation in London streets.
Ladies' fire brigades have been or

Tho new ladles' Arc drill dress is to con

two buttons, just tight enough to keep
it from slipping down over the hips.
This oversklrt will reach just below tho

It doesn't pay to tell "white lies,"
says tho Kansas City Journal. The
other day I read a little treatise on them
which not only argued that they were
admissible but mildly hinted that in
many contingencies they were highly
creditable. I bad this idea in mind
when a short time afterward I was in
troduced to Miss and Mrs. . Now
Miss was an exceedingly homely
young woman, and I knew it; but, re
membering tho suggestions of the book
on "white lies," and thinking that tha
tlmoto put its principle in practice had
come, I said to Mrs. : "What a pret
ty glrlyour daughter Is." And then I
began to erpatlato on tho theme.. I
noticed a rather unsympathetic expres
sion on Mrs. 's face, and just about
the time I finished she said: "That is
my sister-in-law, sir; not my daughter."
