I got any attention , and by that time my lee
was ns big around as n bushel basket Then
the surgeon turned the hose on it for about a
diy , and got it setA .
"A few years ago I wns lost in a fog in an
open bo.it hi the sea of Japan for tbroo day 9 ,
and thought all was up with mo Wo had
plunty of fodder , however , and manuged to
live through it nil right , but I tell ) ouI
never felt so thankful for anjtnlng as I did
for the sight of the masts of our ships at the
end of the third day ,
Two years ago I was struck by n gale
tlutcame mignty near putting an end to my
whaling in this world Wo were running
along , about ten miles off the coast in tno
sea of Okhotsk , when the brcezo struck
us Lord , how she did blow , and
dead on the land at that I Every plank and
timber of the stout old ship creaked and
groaned in misery , the wind wbistlcd and
shrieked through the rigging und a deluge
of salt water poured over our decks continu-
ally Our boats were all blown away and
steve In and tbo rigging snapped like pipe
stems I toll you , my lad , that was a huid
night aud none of us expected to see the day
light Wo squeezed througb , however
Thcro was nbout a hundred barrels of oil
aboard and wo steve In the casks and dumped
it into the water That saved us
Hut I must tell you about the Pork
War " 'I hero Is something that no historian
has ro far dona justice to This was u good
many years ago I was in command of the
Ed Carey , ono of a fleet of four whalers car
rylng all told 120 men When two months
out from San Francisco wo wore overhauled
by the privutcor bhonnudoab and captured
Of coursov/o niadeno light Wo had nothing
to light with Woweroall clapped iutoirons
and kept there for seventeen days , at tbo
end of which wo wcru put off and left to
shift for oursolvcs among the savages of
Ascension Island Wo were there lor six
'
months , and I cannot say it was a very bad
lllo after all Wo were scattered In various
parts of the island on account of thu food
suoply , which is simply wild fruits , ilsh and
game of vurlous sorts and gathered bv tbo
natlvos when they feci hungry Wo ottlcers
were all together und the objects of tbo
special cara of the Uliip , who was not half a
bad follow Ho built n house for us a llttlo
square stone affair , located on a pier over
the water to avoid the mosquitoes , which on
the islund wore as big as canaries and as
bloodthirsty as Bengal tigers Every tnoru-
ing some of the natives , Knakas they are
called , brought us our * days supply
of bananas , bread fruit and otbor
supplies and in fact treated us liUo princes
The rest of the partv was parceled out to
different tribes of the island und all were
well treated It was a luiy happy-go-lucky
kind of u llfo und wo made the most of it
Hut ubout the pork war I dent think
there was over such an affair on the island
before for they have their own stj lo of fignt-
Ing For Instance , two tribes huvo n rtifil-
icutty aim are supposed to be at war Hotli
parties lay low uud tnlk loud till ono of them
gets an incautious member of the opposing
tribe out alone very likely a lone old wo-
man In her canoe they then pounce upon
her and scatter her anatomy to thu four
winds of heaven The other party retaliate
in HUe manner and the cruel war goes on
The crow of ono of our ships consisted of
inatives of tbo Sandwich Islands who very
readily fruternUed with the islanders ,
Two of our men got hold of n barrel of pork
from the wreck of our ship and rolled it up i
to tholr hut Tim Sandwich vlllians got wind
at It and forcibly contlscatcd it Word was 1
brought to us of tbo occurrence and the fol- ;
lowing day nemurchod to the quarters of
the robbers seven men strong and as the 1
booty was guarded by only two men we baa [
no difficulty In recapturing it That night an (
emissary arrived with the information that
our whole party was to bo assassinated We
loaded our guns and prepaied for aslego
Sura enough , at dark down came the black
devils and began Mating away wito all sorts , i
of muskets und ritloa I was in command of [
our party and after telling tbe boys
to be ' careful of their aim
I Bought the shady side of a
stone wall and watched tbo fun None of our
inou were hurt , but 1 suppose about sixty
shots were ilred The cauoe was riddled j
one man was killed and two or three were
wounded Then tbo defeated men enlisted
tbo sympathies of the tribe whose guests
they were and things bejun to look serious
I sent word to the king that wo wanted an
audience It was c/ranted / , and the obstrepcr-
out tribe was summoned before blm at the
same tuna We muttered the wuole white

Kkd Cloud , Neb , Nov 30. [ Spoctal
to THE Bie ] There are yory few
names in history enjoyinjr the distinc
tion and notoriety of that of Rod .
Cloud The name itself has many
pleasant and very many unpleasant ns-
sociations * It 1b derived from the early
days of the Sioux nation and it no
doubt om.ann.tod from no particular
source
For many years the southern bound ,
aries of the Sioux reservation wore i
along tha present Kansas and Nebraska j
line It was then that Red Cloud , tbo
great chief of the tribe , located Ilia
vlllago oti the north banks ol thu Ru- 1
publican rivor-uoar the present site of
the young and prosperous little city of
Red Cloud , and there maintaii.od his
beadquartors until the reservation was
thrown open for uottleinout in 18B8.
Early pioneers soon located the pres-
ont townsito upon a beautiful I
mesa overlooking the broad and I
fertile valley of the Republican i
about two miles north of the rlvor , and I
