hibit ot fruit was put on display In the
room.
The meeting was called to order by the
president , G. A. Marshall of Arlington , who ,
without any preliminary remarks , announced
ni the first thing on the program the paper
by E. P. Stephens of Crete , entitled
"Orcharding In the Irrigated District. "
IRRIGATION AND FRUIT.
Mr. Stephens gave a general review ot the
progress ot fruit raising along the Plalto
valley , showing that whcTe\cr Irrigation was
used apples and smaller fruit had been very
successfully grown , although In some cases ,
whcro water was plenty , there had been en
Inclination to put on too much water , which
drowned out the trees and vines so they did
not hear so well. Ho gave his Ideas of the
kind of soil to select where orchards ore to
bo Irrigated. Ho advocated subsolllng and
thought the fruit grower should avoid alkali
soils. Ho fpoke ot the experiments of fruit
growers who tind found that a very slow atul
regular flow of water would moro readily
soak Into the eoll. Mr. Stephens was himself
ot the opinion that cultivation of orchards
was moro Important than Irrigation. Experi
ence had shown , however , that strawberries ,
ns well as other small fruits , did exceedingly
well under Irrigation. The speaker paid some
attention to the question of "smudging"
orchards to prevent damage by frosts In the
spring. Ho thought that In cases \\tierc a
damaging frost la threatened the turning
| of damp brush which would keep up a dense
smoke and very little blaze the best results
were obtained. He was of the opinion that
when the fruit growers of Nebraska emulate
those of Illinois end work moro with their
hands and less with horses they would be
moro successful In Hie raising of fruit.
Aiipr air. stcpliena Ilnlsnea his paper there
was a discussion on the question of "smudg
ing , " some advocating the use of steam If
It could bo made at a low cost. It was shown
that "smudging" would ralso the temperature
about 5 degrees.
SOME PRACTICAL QUESTIONS.
E. T. Hartley of Lincoln read a paper on
"Thorough Cultivation of the Orchard. " Ho
said that some people had theories as to the
way of .cultivating orchards which were good ,
but too expensive to bo practicable. Ho said
that the use of the ordinary cultivator was
unsatisfactory as It left weeds between the
shovels which seemed to grow all the better
for the cultivating. Ho advocated the use of
a disc harrow , to which was added a long
Hat bar of stcol , sharpened on ono edge , and
so adjusted that it would run tinder tha
loose soil behind the discs , and thus cutting
off the roots of all the weeds. With this
tool ho had been able to keep a large orchard
clean at an expense of less than 4 cents
per tree for the season. Ho found that the
constant use of a disc harrow would result
In. hollowing out the ground between the
rows of trees , because the discs threw the
dirt outward toward the trees. To remedy
this ho reversed the discs alternate seasons ,
thus throwing the dirt back toward the
center. He did not believe- that a growth of
pursloy on the soil among the trees was any
damage , for the reason that soil covered
with this weed remained damp while bare
soil baked In the sun. In fact , ho had found
good results from encouraging a growth of
pursley.
There was a lengthly discussion after Mr.
Hartley's paper on the use of the now tool
described by him , In which the fact was
brought out that such a cultivator could be
pulled readily by a two-horse team. The
discussion then ran off upon the question of
what depth to set cherry trees and how to
prevent sprouting. It was agreed that trees
that send up sprouts make a slower growth
and yield u smaller amount of fruit than do
the trees without sprouts.
SCIENTIFIC SUGGESTIONS.
Trot. C. B. Bessey ot , the University of
Nebraska talked en "Some Facts In Plant
1'hyslology 'Bearing ' Upon Horticultural Prac
tices. " Ho held that the present method of
teaching of botany Ui the public schools Is
of llttlo practical use. Ho believed that the
study should bo devoted to hew the plants
act. The way a plant acts Is Its physiology.
The Imporant thing to observe la the use of
water and the amount ot water contained In
tiio plants. To illustrate this ho read from
tables , showing the per cent of water In the
following fruits anl plants : Apples , S3 ;
plum , 84 ; cucumber , 95 > ,6 ; pear ,
83 , grapes , S3 ; cherries , 82'/i ; asparagus ,
93 ; potato , 75 ; lettuce , 94 ; cabbage ,
turnip , 92 ; radish , 93 ; beets , 88 ; grape stems ,
CO ; pea vines , 83' ; green wood , 47 to C9 ;
cottonwood leaves , 79 ; grape leaves , 75. He
said that while/ the roots of a plant were
taking In water the leaves were- leaking It
out through evaporatleci. These leaks came
through llttlo openings In the leaves open
ings so minute- that on a square Inch of apple
leaf there , would bo about 175,000 openings
and where the water escapes through the
leaves a constant supply Is needed at the
roots to supply the wants of the plant * ? . In
the caBO of green grass the professor said
that \\bon the farmer cuts a ton ot hay ho
cuts down 1,500 pounds of water. Ho thought
that a proper study of the plant phjslology
would enabletha students to dovUo means
to check the loss of water. It had been
found that thick leaved plants and thoeo
covered with a fort of hair , llko the mullen ,
would beat stand the drouth. Ho believed
that whcro the wind passed through a grove
of trees It carried dampness received from
tliesa trees which would ha of benefit to the
plants or trees next touched by thla wind.
George L. Allen of Leigh read a paper on
" Currants" lu wtilch ho advocated the most
thorough ot cultivation and the protection of
tbo bushes from the south winds. Ho believed
that the ground should bo manured every
year and that the manure should bo thor
oughly worked In around the roots of , the
bushes. A discussion as to varieties followed ,
in which II , A. Langsdort of Bellevue and L.
O. Williams of Council Bluffs took Uio lead
ing parts.
L. C. Chapln of Lincoln discussed "The
Flower Garden. " He believed that the farmers
of the west wcro moro and moro coming to
the Idea ot planting" flower gardens as a
means of beautifying their homes. He ilo-
Bcclbod many of the ways for setting out and
trululag plants.

tco was copotntcd to solicit stock nnd as soon
as It lias $5,000 subscribed It will hold

NEBRASKA CITY , Jan. 11. ( Special. )
The Board of Education , met last evening to
Investigate the charges preferred by Harrison
risen brothers against 'E. ' H. Morgan , prin
cipal of the Sixth street school. The com
plainants alleged that their sister iNelllo was
compelled by Mr. Morgan to go up and down
stairs an excessive number ot times as a
punishment for some infraction ot rules.
The llttlo girl was taken sick a few days
afterward and died two or three days later
of Inflammation ol the bowels. _
The evidence was conflicting , but developed
the fact that the child made ten or fifteen
trips up and down the stairs. The board
rendered Its decision as follows :
"Tho board recognizes the ability and
faithful services of Prof. Morgan In the
past and does not consider that a single mis
take In judgment Is sufficient to Justify a
withdrawal of confidence In him. We find
from the evidence that the punishment In
flicted was not the cause of Nellie Har
rison's death , though It was more than neces
sary in degree. "

LINCOLN , Jan. 11. ( Special. ) The Inves
tigating cominltteo Is about to submit a report -
port In which a shortage of noout $2,000 will
bo charged against William Ebrlght , a for
mer superintendent of the Institute for th&
1311ml at Nebraska City. Tlic report will
show that after Mrs. Ubrlgr.t had been prc
raotcil from matron to assistant superin
tendent of the Institution a young woman
who waa an Inmate was carried on the rolls
as matron and the vouchers at the rate of
$50 per month were drawn In her favor for
about eight months. The committee has
discovered that the young woman did not
receive the money , although tbo vouchers
are endorsed by her.
Another Instance la that of a boy Inmate
who was on the pay roll ai a. leather and
whoso vouchers wcro at iho rate of $25 ! >
month. VTho boy testifies that ho was 'not
employed as a teacher uii'l did not ! ecelvc
this money ; that he was nuitug that time
employed as a bell boy and received $ > per
month.
Two girls reported as teachers , and for
whom warrants wcro drawn at the rate ot
$30 per month each for two or three months ,
testify that they did not receive the money.
.Thcso Items foot up to about $1,000.
According to the committee the other
$1,000 shortage comes from the padded bills
inado out by a man named Schutnan , who
operated a drug store at Nebraska City at
that tlmo and who furnished the drugs for
the Institution. Schuman made up his bill
at the end of each month , giving the num
bers of the prescriptions and rr.\llni ; ; a total
charge without Itemizing o.vjh account. Ills
bills were audited and paid.
It has been ascertained froa the boolt/3 /
turned over to the committee by Iho suc
cessor of Schuman In the drug business that
all the prescriptions made out for private
Individuals during each moir.avcro again
charged against the state , the numbers ot
the prescriptions lu the Dills undercd at the
end of each month being In a majority of
casw the same as those which had been ON
dered and paid for by private parties. The
overcharge In the drug Item Is found to
amount to about $1,000.

The report to bo Issued by the State Board
of Transportation In a few days will show
that 1897 Vina a prosperous year for the
railroads , both passenger and freight earn
ing having largely Increased over 1SOC. No
now road has been built , but the general
condition ot all lines Is better. The total
mileage In the state Is G,5S5.G. ! )
The report 'will show that in 180G twenty-
seven employes were killed and 173 Injured ,
while In 1897 twelve were killed and 145
InJuroJ. In 189G three passengers were killed
and thirty-two Injured. Of all others not
trespassing , seven were killed and fourteen
Injured In 1896 , and six killed and seven
teen Injured In 1897. A total of sixty-one
persons were killed and 245 were Injured on
all roads In 1S9G , and forty-four killed and
230 Injured In 1897.
, The report further says : Passenger earn
ings have also measurably Increased be
cause of more travel and a curtailment of
free or "deadhead" transportation for politi
cal and other purposes. Roads of the state
have almost , If not entirely , gone out of
politics , thus relieving themselves of the
burden otjrea transportation of large num
bers of delegates , an evil of such magnitude
and of such long standing , requiring a
long time to abolish , but much was done
during the last year.

LINCOLN , Jan. 11. ( Sffcfrfal Telegram. )
The twenty-first annual JiiW\lng of the Nebraska
'
braska State Historical noc'lpty was opened at
the chapel of the State unlvwMtjr this evening
and the hall was filled wHh.f ectatcrs , among
them being many who were1 lu Nebraska In
tbo territorial days and who helped to make
much of the state's early tilstory. The even
ing was devoted to the history and reminis
cences of cnrly Nebraska Journalism , able
papers being read by Hon. J , Sterling Mor
ton , president ot the society , nnd by Hon.
George L. Miller.
In his opening address President Morton
took up the history of the first Nebraska
paper , the Omaha Arrow , which was printed
In Council Bluffs , and the Nebraska Pal
ladium , which was published In Bellevtlo nnd
was the first to bo printed In the terrl'ory.
The date of ttio first Issue of the Palladium
after Its removal across the river from St.
Mary's , la. , was November 14.1851. Mr. Mer-
tcn quoted several Items from the paper and
also from the Issues following the first num
ber , which gave some accounts ot ( he tiolltlc.il
struggles then raging In the state. The early
history ot the Nebraska City News , pub
lished by Mr. Morton himself , and of other
territorial newspapers was given. In re
ferring to the attempt that was made In 1855
to extend the boundaries of Kansas to the
Platte river , Mr. Morton said : "Fortunately

Dr. George L. Miller's paper wai entitled
"Newspapers and Newspaper Men of the
Territorial Period. " Ho told of the early
history of the Omaha Republican and the
Omaha Herald. Ho said that In his work
as editor of the Herald bo owed much to

Imitate. Ho referred tp Morton's Influence
In the early days nnd to the fact ttoat he had
slnco been a member of the cabinet of "one
of the most Illustrious of American presi
dents. " Dr. Miller eald that the Herald was
born of poor but respectable parents and
after Its sale to Hitchcock It "did not die ,
exactly , which for several reasons Is deeply
to be regretted , but was and Is somewhat
painfully suffocated In more ways than I care
to enumerate. "

Senator Mills lhas a new story nbouti Lin
coln. It was tnld to him by n son of John
Jj. Helm of Kentucky , who llvea In Corsl-
cana.
"Old John L. Helm , " said the senator to
the Washington Post man , "was a famous
character In Kentucky. He was , If I re
member rightly , n goyprrlor of the state ,
but at any rate his portion wn a most
prominent ono. AVhcn , jjj/j / civil war came
on Helm was a rnblu secessionist. Ho could
not praise the south iqo'filghly , and could
not heap enough abuse * upon the north.
Ho was too old to go Into the war with his
sons , and remained ' home , doing all ho
could to help the confederate cause and
harass the Yankees wpo ilnvaded the state.
Finally he became BO .obstreperous that the
federal general who wiurlh command near
Helm's homo put him In prison. The old
man'H nge , the high position which he occu.
pled In the state , bis jwldo connection , and
especially his Inability Jo do any uctual
harm , were all pleaded ( p lilH extenuation
ml ho waa released , * Instead of profiting
by the warning , the did > nan became moro
persistent than over IrHhls course. Once
moro ho was clapped9 Into Jail. This hap
pened two or thrco jtlmes , and finally ,
while ho wan still lopked up , the matter
was brougl.it to the attention of the federal
authorities Kvrn President Lincoln waa
appealed to , and naked'to commit tlio ar
dent southerner to an 'Indefinite confine
ment In order that he might bo curbed.
"Lincoln listened to the statement of the
case with more than usual Interest. Then
he leaned back and began to speak with a
Bmlle upon his face. 'You are talking about
old man John Helm ? Wnl' . djd you know
that I used to live , when I was a boy , In
Helm's town ? He was kind to mo. He
seemed to like me as a boy , and he never
lost an opportunity to help me. He seemed
to think , ' said Lincoln with another of his
almost pathetic smiles , 'that I would prob
ably make something of a man. Why ,
when 1 went out to Illinois , poor and un
known , that man ? u\e ma the money to
pay my way and keep me until I cot a
start. John Helm ? O , yc , I know him.
And I know what I owe to him , I think I

"And then,1' said Senator Mills , "Lincoln
went to a dcek and wrote a few words.

( uod the Janitor.
The Albemarle Is a new apartment house
at No. 3C1 West Twenty-seventh street , re
lates the New York World. It has all
modern Improvements , Including an electric
elevator. The house has been open for a
month now , and a hundred times a day has
Henry Patterson , the Janitor , gene up and
down In the elevator.
It la a heavy elevator with a freight car
attached to the bottom of It. The boy who
was hired by the house to run it could [
manage It with one hand. It haJ a fancy
Venetian wrought-lron root and silver
grilled doors , and casings on every floor.
Alice Doothroyd moved Into the Albemarlo
last week and took the front apartment on
tbo sixth floor. Janitor Patterson and his
family wcro temporarily In the rear apart
ment on the same floor , and little Henry ,
his son , soon got to know < Mrs. Boothroyd
and was only too glad of the chance to run
errauds for her.
Just before 7 o'clock p. m. on Monday
Mrs. Boothroyd needed something for dinner.
She hurried Into the hall and called for
llttlo Henry. Ho ran out of the rooms In
the rear and Mrs. Boothroyd gave her direc
tions to him while they were waiting for
the elevator to come up the six stories.
"There's papa In the elevator , " cried little
Henry , as the elevator stopped at the sixth
floor.
Sure enough , Itwas Janitor Patterson.
Ho opened the door and stepped out. 'Ho '
heard 'Mrs. ' Doothroyd speaking to little
Henry , and stopped to hear what was
wanted.
Ho had ono foot on the marble flooring and
ono In the elevator. No one knows how It
happened. Perhaps some one who won't
tell pulled the elevator rope In the base
ment. Perhaps the machine got out of
cear.
cear.A rumble and a creaking.
Down , down went the elevator ! Right
from under the man's feet it fell. IHe
sprang for the sure footing of the marble
floor. Ho slipped , ho foil. He landed on
Ills face. His head was In the shaft. His
feet sprawled out on the floor.
"Help me , " he shrieked , "I'm "
But not another 'word ' could the man
utter. The roof of the elevator had fallen
across his neck. There he was , pinned face
down on the floor and the sharp iron grill
work of the elevator roof settling Into his
( lesh. He would bo choked to death 'before '
Ills head was cut off.
Little Henry screamed. 'But ' not Mrs.
Boothroyd. A great presence of mind came
over her. Poor Patterson was gurgling at
lier feet and slowly , very slowly that awful
thing was settling ten seconds moro and
tie would bo dead and' decapitated.
One piercing scream and then another.
It'was Mrs. Boothroyd. But not until she
herself had taken means to save the man's
life. Gho seized the Iron grill work In her
hands and was holding up the entire weight
of the elevator with all the strength she
possessed.
"Help ! 'Help ' ! " she shrieked. "He'll be
killed ! He'll ho killed ! "
But still the elevator settled. It was
scraping the skin off Patterson's neck now
and cutting great gashes In his flesh. Mrs.
Boothroyd Ibracod herself against the fancy
silver grill work of the half-open doon Her
knee fairly dug Itself Into the Iron work ,
bonding- and twisting It all out of shape.
But It worked. The , thing slowly came tea
a standstill. Patterson's gurgles stopped
now.
"Hurry ! Hurry ! " shrieked Mio. Booth
royd.
It scorned as If she had been supporting
that awful weight for an ago , and yet It
was 'but ' a few seconds. Patterson lay quiet.
Ho was slowly choking to death. Any mln-
ute the woman's grip might slip and his
head would ibo cut off as cleanly as If a
guillotine had done It. Suddenly he gave
a convulsive shiver.
" " ho choked "for "
"Savo mo ! ,
Mrs. Boothroyd Ibraced herself again and
gave a mighty heave. It was the last
strength aha had and all her force of will.
The wonder of It ! The thing actually
moved upward. The horrible weight was
off Patterson'a neck.
The hallway was full of people now , at
tracted there from every floor by the
screams of little Henry and Mrs. Booth
royd. A man came up the stairs four stopo
at a time. Mrs. Patterson came running out
of her apartments , thinking that It was her
llttld boy who was hurt.
The man was Just In time , The ele
vator was off Patterson's neck. Ho sclzei
the half-unconscious man by tbo legs an , '
dragged his head out of the shaft ,
Patterson's life was saved !
"And then , woman-like , Mrs. Boothroyd
fled from the scene.
Tt > AVAMC ACHOSS Til 13 ATLANTIC.
Ciindiln Olilrlovi- Mnl < e the Attempt
Xt-xt Jill- .
Captain William C. Oldrlevo of Boston has
planned to walk across the Atlantic ocean
next July. Ho will begin Ms Journey July 4
and will be accompanied by Captain William
A , Andrews , famous by reason of his voyages
across the Atlantic In a small callboat.
It Is nothing new for Captain Oldrlevo to
promenade the waves , That has been his
pleasure and profit thcso ten years. Captain
Andrews , who Is to bo the companion of the
water pedestrian , will journey In a brand
new fourteen-foot sailboat and la tdls merely
repeats a feat performed In 1878 and again In
1892 ,
Captain Andrews Is really the man who has
brought about the whole affair. Ho said :
"Incredible as It may seem , next year wo
am really going to walk , and sail down Bos
ton harbor , out en to the ocean and over to
Havre , France , through the great bore of tbo
river Selno and on up to Paris , to bo there
to attend the exposition of 1900 , In our now
seagoing shoes and smallest , fastest and best
beat that has over crossed the Atlantic ocean ,
the Phantom Sblp. Every vessel wo speak on
the ocean will report ono ot us walking and
sometimes towing the boat In calm weather. "
The seagoing shoes of Mr , Oldrlcve are the
meet wonderful part of the whole affair. At
condition , so that t invariably caution
all men or women who consult me to
see , llrst of all , to their general health ,
especially that the secretions are In per
fect condition. I wish to say that lu
this work I have been largely aided by
ono of the greatest discoveries of mod
ern times , lly its use , in connection
with my work , I have often been able
to make women who are sallow ,
first thought they seem ns fabulous ns the
six-league boots of fairy lore ; yet they are
simple enough when understood. They are
really a ixilr of cedar boxes five feet long ,
with fins on the bottom and sides. Tiicy arc
very light and capable of sustaining 140
pounds , but , as Oldrlevo weighs only 130 , they
are as good to him as a steamer's deck. Into
each of these wooden shoes the water walker's
feet are thrust down deep and a rubber
g > artcr-llke affair Is fastened to his leg , thus
effectually keeping out the water. Rubber
boots reaching to the thigh are also worn.
When thus cqultped Oldrlevo Is able to walk
many miles and to travel over clioppy seas ,
aad oven tlio heavy swell of the ocean.
"I have perfect confidence , " said Mr. Old-
rlovo. "ot being able to walk a great part of
the distance across the ocean , I shall keep
an exact record of the miles walked each day.
I Of course I shall sleep and take my meals
on board with Captain Andrews , but I shall
stick to the water-walking feat during most
of my waking hours. You see , I want to
make n world's record that shall never bo
beaten. I am young and strong and In the
very best condition , and now Is the time fee
me to attempt this great IMng , If I ever do.
I have had It In mind for years. "
William C. Oldrlevo is a sturdily built
young man of 29 years. Ho Is but five feet
four Inches In height and weighs 130 pounds.
Every pound of that , however , Is hard muccle
and bane. His strength has been developed ,
too , In actual walking on the water , which
ho has been doing slnco 18S7. In November ,
18S3 , he walked down the Hudson river to
New York City from Albany , a distance of
1GO mile. ? . A week later ho walked across
t'ao chcvipy East river. In January , 1889 , he
walked through Hunt's falls , on the Merrl-
mae river , at Lowell , Mass. In February ,
1880 , he walked through Lawrence rapids , en
the Merrimao. In December , 1891 , ho walked
to Mlnot's Light , from Bcciton , and then
started to walk back , a distance of twenty
miles , but , a thick fog having set In , he
lost his way and drifted In Massachusetts bay
for twenty-seven hours. Ho was picked up
in an exhausted condition by the United
States revenue cutter Hamlln.

Colonel L. P. Tarlton of Frankfort , Ky. ,
has perhaps had as much experlenco as
judge nt race tracks as any man In the
west. Ho has had many odd experiences.
Tills Is one of them ns he tolls It in the
New York Sun :
"Nearly nil the time that General Phil
Sheridan had his headquarters nt Chicago
he was the president of the Jockey club
there. He frequently served , too , as an
associate judge. This was about a dozen
years ns > o , anil It wns not customary then
to have regular paid associate Judges , ofll-
cers of the club nnd others serving as
volunteers nnd us a courtesy to the club In
thnt capacity. One day when General Sher-
Idnn was up In the Judges' little cockloft
performing the duties of nn associate he
K-avo n splendid exhibition of his coolness.
It was a holiday of some sort , und there
was a tremendous'crowd out. In. the most
promising race of the day the horses
Jacobin nnd Woodcroft were contenders ,
among' others. The former was a hot ,
heavily pluyed favorite at even money , and
Woodcroft a rather lonp shot.
"As the horses finally came Into the
stretch It wns apparent to the practiced eye
that the betters had sized them up about
right , for Jacobin's Jockey was simply
waiting1 to bring his mount In a winner
with a grand-stand llnlsli. As they neared
the wire Jacobin came out of the hunch ,
but ns he did so ho recklessly nnd bare
facedly fouled Woodcroft , carrying that
horse clear off hlH stride and course and
almost over the fence. The race crowds
In Chicago In those times on holidays 'hail
a largo rough foreign clement In them. 1
knew when I saw Jacobin frisk under the
wire a head or so In advance of the still
unstcadled Woodcroft that there was a
trying time before thd JudgcH.
" 'What do you think of it , general ? ' 1
said to General Sheridan. General Sheri
dan was not , of course , ns a layman , ex
pected to give the track matters expert
scrutiny always , but It was my duty and
pleasure to consult with him. The Bcn-
eral was but a casual admirer ot the sport ,
with no inclination to delve Into ItH tech
nicalities. He 'had ' evidently paid but his
usual fleeting attention , to the race.
" 'Well , 1 suppose the best horse won , '
enld he , as ono simply speaking because
spoken to. I
"Of course the foul wns clear to my
other associate , Captain llllly Williamson ,
the then prominent turfman. It wns en
tirely too clear to both of UH for our pence
of mind. So wanton an offense against a
plain rule of racing1 could under no circum
stances ) > a overlooked. General Sheridan
at once sided with us when his attention
was directed to the point. Wo disqualified
Jacobin and g'ave the race to Woodcroft.
"Immediately the board wan hung out on
the sldo of the stand announcing the de
cision pandemonium broke loose. During
our deliberation n great crowd had swarmed
over to the stand from all parts of the
{ -rounds. We were In the midst of a sea
of faces of pikers distorted with rngo and
grimaces of disappointment and bitter pro
test. Growls , tiowls and hoots swelled Into
a continuous rour of condemnation. One
unkempt giant In some way got a hatchet
and bwan climbing' up the side of the
Bland. Whether his object was to cut
down the lettered board or to brain us
was not clear to us , probably not to him
self. Captain Williamson ffiiletly reached
Into a deep Inner pocket nnd brought forth
a single-barrelled Derringer with the lioro
of a musket. I Implored him not to shoot
as ho valued our lives ,
" 'I'll send that fellow to hades ahead of
mo' was his response , i
"I appealed then to General Sheridan to
make his presence known , an doubtless a
few word from him would have the de
sired effect , Hy this time our frail perch
of a stand was trembling and jarring from
the force of the excited multitude sway I IK ;
about It. I recall General Sheridan's ap
pearance .minutely. Hu hud not risen from
hlH comfortable neat , and 'ho was smoking
a very long1 fat cigar. He puffed It leis
urely and answered mo between puffa as
ono reluctant to ho detracted from an ex
ceptionally good brand.
" 'It will evaporate ; It will evaporate , ' ho
said. Those were hla words and only those.
Well , the mob for such It wns for all
practical purposes did finally evaporate ,
