knew what it was talking about. Tiiej
may have been imposter?, but it is not
at all likely. As far aa Mi. Hawk u
concerned, he is no doubt doing h s
duty. It is not the individual but the
agents ofadatnnableeysteni which the
people are opposed to. The Indian
policy and white policy are both ot
noxious aa carried out by the general
- government. They are twin relics of
a wrong system, and when the pre
speaks out against them both in the
game breath it is done to call tnc at
tention of the government to the
wrongs the people of Arizona are en
during to keep alive a lot of hungry
officials, whose whole aim seems to be
to make hay while the sun chines.

Not an Indian bad been seen all the
afternoon no signs had been met with,
writes a contributor to the Detroit Tree
Tho rido had led over ground sc
sterile that even sage-brush could not
grow thero across dry ravines over
out-crop of flinty rock from one ridjro
to another, until at last we camo to the
Loup river and went into camp in a
Mattered drove. No signs of Indian
there. As tho setting sun flooded tbo
earth with Its golden light vo could see
for miles and miles in every direction
No sign of danger.
Night comes down as softly as a child
closes its eyes in sleep, and the light
breeze, from the north brings a film of
w bite cloud to hido a portion ot the
stars. A sentinel is posted on tho bank
of tho stream a second to the cast a
third to tho west. 1 seems almost ab
surd to take theso precautions. The
crickets sing under tho stones field mice
run about in the grass the w aters of the
Loup sing a peaceful song as they flow
past our camp.
No Indians no signs. It is such calm,
quiet nlcbts as this which have lulled
the tired emigrant to his last sleep on
earth. Seeing no Indians, he has argued
that none were lurking and watching.
We who had fought the red man from
Fort Kearney to tho source of tho Pow
der river know- him better. Tho very
absence of his footprints Is a menace.
The quietness of the night is a warning
to be heeded.
At ten o'clock everybody but tho
sentinels is fast asleep. Some of the
horses are lying at full length, so buried
in slumber that their heavy breathing
can be hejrd for yards away. At eleven
o'clock all is quiet. Even the crickets
havo almost given o'er their noise.

Ono o'clock! Now there is tho quiet
ness of a graveyard. Men and horses
seem to be dead. The sentinel to tho
east gives a sudden start. Ho would
deny it on his oath, but for an instant he
slept. Ho shakes himself and looks over
the camp. All is peace, but he has re
ceived a shock which makes his heart
beat faster. His stand is at tho foot of
a cottonwood. He sinks down on bis
knees and peers out from either side of
tho trunk. Nothing In sight nothing
but the dark shadows cast by the clouds.
"Chirp! Chirp! Chirp1"
A cricket begins his song again after
a long silence. It stems loud enough to
aaken every sleeper, but it Is" not. It
Is very low and quiet. It reaches the
ears of only ono sentinel.
"Watch! Watch! Watch!"
His heart leaps to his mouth. Tho
words como to him as plain as It spoken
by somo human being. Watch what?
Watch where? Watch for who?
"Watch! Watchl Watch!"
The sentinel's eye falls upon a dark
spot on the grass a hundred feet away
It Is the shadow of a cloud. The darker
spot in the center is a rock lifting iu
head out ot tho earth. He noticed It be
fore darkness came, no can see nothing
moving there is no danger.
"Look! Look! Look!"
His 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! Comtngr-
So shouts tho cr.cket, and now the
sentinel is sure the dark spot has ad
vanced. Of course it has! It has also
changed tho lino of its advance. With
bated breath be waits and watches. Tho
man who disturbs camp without good
cause will be taunted with cowardice.
Ahl It does move! The black spot Is
not now over fifty feet away.
"Shoot! Shoot! Shoot!"
Tho sentinel eoftly pulls back tho
hammer of his heavy carbine, raises
the weapon qulotly to his shoulder, and
the loud report la follow ed by a cry so
long-drawn, so wild and weird and full
of death that no ono forjjets It for a
month. Thero is wild confusion for a
moment, and then everyone is ready.
"What Is It?"
Three or four men advanco to tho
dark spot to find the body of an Indian
stretched at full length on the earth,
shot through tho breast. Eighty rods
away are half a hundred fierce warriors,
waiting in tho darkness for tho spy to
retnrn and report. At the sound of his
death-cry they mount their ponies and

AFTER THE DUEL.
Aa Eaconater at Nice That Brought Many

Tho sulcldo of Major Normann
German army, which occurred rece
was said to bo duo to an unpleasant
scandal involving his morals. Itut wa
that the real reason for the self-murder?
This suicide is the end of a long train
of suicides and sudden deaths, all of
which seemingly bad their origin in a
duel which took place in Nice in Janu
ary in 1SS8, and in which the two princi
pals were liaron von 1'lesson and a well
known Belgian sportsman.
One morning while exercising his
horse on the Hippodrome ot the Var at
Nlco tho Belgian saw one ot his friends,
llerr Oelschlager, a Berlin sportsman,
walking along with abstracted air. He
accordingly galloped up behind him,
whisked off the German's hat by way of
i pleasantry and cried: "Well, German,
why don't you say good morning?"
What llerr Oelschlager thought ot
this pleasantry will never be know n, but
liaron von Plessen, who was walking
with Oelschlager, supposed It was meant
for an insult, and gave the Belgian a tre
mendous blow In tho face.
Seconds were appointed and a duel
was at once arranged. The Belgian In
sisted that the duel should be aa severe
It was finally decided that the en
counter should bo with pistols and that
the duel should be fought In Herr
Oelschlager' dining-room. In order
that the seconds might not be arrested
or suspected each of the adversaries
wrote a letter to his second saying that
he was about to kill himself, and this
w as to be used In case one or the other
The duel came oft and Baron von Pies
ten was killed by a ball in the forehead
at the yery first fire. His adversary wai
unhurt. All the participants kept si
lence about the affair.
But in 1SS9 tho fatality which ha1,
pursued every ono connected with this
lingular duel began to work.
First one of tho seconds, a Lieutenant
ot Uhlans named Steinmotz. killed him
self, vastly to the surprise of his friends,
who supposed him perfectly happy.
llerr Oelschlager and the v icomto do
Jumellho died suddenly. Last Novem
ber the Belgian who killed Von ricssen
in the duel announced that ho was tired
of life, and killed himself with a bullet
in tho breast.
And now- the sulcldo of Major Nor
mann, tho fourth and last of tho sec

TREATMENT OF BOILS.
The Tredlapotlnc Caue of Several Klada
t of Job Comforter.
Tho predisposing cause of bolls Is a
lowering of tho health at somo point.
In tho opinion of many students ot dla
caso tho Immediate causo is a microbe,
which finds Its way Into somo gland of
tho skin, where it sets up a peculiar in
flammation. Generally tho gland is an
oil gland. In the armpits It is a sweat
gland. On the eyelid, whore the boil Is
known as a "sty," it is a gland of still
Tho first indication ot a boil is a slight
itching, followed by a reddish pimple
with a balr In tho center. Sometimes
tho pulling out ot this balr w 111 arrest
tho development of the sore. As the
pimple grows, tho redness extends and
becomes more Intense, and the part be-
I pins to throb with pain. In about five
days It breaks, pus oozes out, the pain
abates, and soon after the dead tissue
the so-called "core" escapes followed
i by rapid healing. Sometimes no core
I appears, nor does the boll suppurate.
This is known as tho "blind bolL" It
Is very hard and painful, and is long in
Sometimes a malignant form of boll
appears on tho hoad or neck, or especial
ly on the lip. At first it resembles an
ordinary boll, but it gives rise to blood
poison, and -after extreme suffering is
fatal in about fivo da s.
A carbuncle somewhat resembles a
boil, but is much larger and more pain
ful. It tends to spread and has several
openings. It produces a great disturb
ance of tbo whole system, and is very
dangerous in Its tendency. The constitu
tional symptoms of boils are slight,
thoush In somo casos there may be con
Tho treatment should be. In the first
place, constitutional, aiming to restore
the vigor ot the system. Tbo diet
should be generous, without excess, and
easily digestible. The patient, while
avoiding exhaustion, should tako a
! proper amount of exercise, have an
' abundance of pure air, and wash Ma
body dally with cool wator and soap.
Local treatment, also, is needed. To
arrest tbo progress of a boll at Its early
stage. Sir Erasmus Wilson advises the
application of a solution of sugar of lead
every six or twelve hours with a camel's
halr brush. If this falls, he would pro
mote suppuration by spreading on it a
wash-leather plaster of galbanum and
opium, cut In tho middle for the escape
of tho pns.
If the pain continues to Increase, ha
would apply soothing applications.
When tho boll begins to heal, he would
keep the skin around It dry, clean it
with tar soap, and smear it with yellow
resin ointment, dressing the broken
tnrfarn with Ifnfc nn-vul wltH t)iA se.ma
ointment, keeping the dressing In osl-
tion with strips of adhesive plaster or
