The name of the hero of thh. pathetic story is not given, but eery reader will know who is meant. We regret that we cannot give the writer's name. We found the story in a country . paper credited to z. A soldier who had won imperishable fame on the battlefields of his country, was confronted by a gaunt stranger, clad all in black and wearing an impenetra ble mask. "Who are you that you dare to block my way?'' demanded the soldier. Then the stranger drew aside his mask and the soldier knew that he was Death. "Have vou come for me?" asked the soldier. "If so I will not go with you; so go your wav alone." But Death held out his bony hand and bpckoned to the soldier. "No," cried the soldier, resolutely; "my time is not come. See, here are the histories I am writing no hand but mine can finish them I will not go till they are done!" "I have hidden by your side day and night," said Death; "I have hovered about you on a hundred battlefields, b it no sight of me could chill your heart till now, and now I hold vou in niy power. Come!" And with these words Death seized upon the soldier and strove to bear him hence, but the soldier struggled so des perately that he prevailed against Death and the strange phantom departed alone. Then when be had gone the sol dier found upon hi3 throat the imprint of Death's ciuel fingers so fierce had been the struggle. And nothing could wash away the marks nay, not all the skill of the world could wash them away, for they were disease, lingering, agoniz ing, fual disease. But with quiet valor the soldier returned to his histories, and for many days thereafter he toiled upon them as the last and best work of his noble life. "How pale and thin the soldier is get ting," said the people. "His hair whiten ing and his eyes are wear-. He should not have undertaken the histories the labor is kiling him." They did n ..t know of his struggle with Death, nor had they seen the marks up on the soldier's throat. But the physi cians who came to him and saw "the marks of Death 's cruel fingers, shook their heads and said the soldier could not live to complete the work upon which his whole heart was set. And the soldier knew it, too, and many a time he paused in his writing and laid his pen aside and bowed his head upon his hands, and strove for consolation in the thought of the great fame he had already won. But there was no consola tion in all this. So when Death came a second time he found the soldier weak and trembling and emaciated. "It would be vain of you to struggle with me now," said Death. "My poison is in your vein, and see, my dew is on your "brow. But you are a brave man and I will not bear you with me till you have asked one favor, which I will grant." "Give me an hour to ask tbe favor." saia tne soldier, mere are so many things my history and all give me an hour" that I may decide what I shall ask?" And as Death tarried the soldier com municated with himself. Before he closed his eyes forever what boon should he ask of Death. And the soldier's thoughts sped back over the years and his whole life came to him like a light-ninflash-the companionship and smiles of kings, the glories of government and political power, the honor of peace, and joy of conquest, the din of battle, the sweets of quiet home life upon the west ern prarie, the gentle devotion of a wife, the clamor of a noisy boy and the face of a little girl ah, there his thoughts lingered and clung. 'Time to complete our work our books our histories," counciled Ambi tion. "Ask Death for time to do this last and crowning act of our great life." But the soldier's ears were deaf to the cries of Ambition; they heard another Toice the voice of the soldier's heart -and the voice whispered "Nellie Nellie Nellie." That was all no other words but those, and the soldier struggled to his feet, and stretched forth his hands and called to . Death, and hearing him calling, Death, came and stood before him. my choice," said the knee many and many a time while his rough hands weaved prairie flowers in her soft, fair curls. And the soldiercall 1 far "Npllift now. inst sn ha did then. when she sat on his knee and prattled of her dolls. This is the way of the human heart It having been noised about that the soldier was dying and that Nellie bad been sent across the sea, all the people vied with each other in soothing the last moments of the famous man, for he was beloved by all and all were bound to hun by bonds of patriotic gratitude, since he nad Deen so Drave a soiaier upon battlefields of his country. But the sol dier did not heed their words of sym pathy; the voice of fame, which in the past had Btirred a fever in his blood and fallen mo3t pleasantly upon his ear3 awakened no emotion in his bosom now. The soldier thought only of Nellie, and he awaited her coming. . An old comrade came and pressed his hand, and talked of the times when they went to the ars together; and the old comrade told of this battle and of that, and how such a victory was won and how euc a city taken. But the sol dier's ears heard no sound of battle now, and his eyes could see no flash, of sabre or smoke of war. So the people came and spoke words of veneration and love and hope, and so with quiet fortitude, but with a hungry heart, the soldi r waited for Nellie, his little girl. She came across the broad, tempestu ous ocean. The gulls flew far out from land and told the winds, and the winds blew further still and said: "Speed on 0 ship! speed on in tny swilt, straight course, for you are bearing a treasure to a father's heart!' Then the ship leaped forward in her pathway, and the waves werevery still, and the winds kept whispering: Speed on, 0 ship," till at last the ship was come to port and the little girl v, as clasped in the soldier's arms. Then for a season the soldier seemed quite himself again, and people said "he will live," and they praed that he might. But their hopes and prayers were vain. Death's seal was on the sol dier a d there was no release. The last days of the soldier's life were the most beautiful of all but what a mockery of ambition and fame, and all the grand pretentious things of life they were! They were the triumph of a hu man heart, and what is better or purer or sweeter than that? No thought of the hundred battlefields upon which hi3 valor had shown con spicuous came to the soldier now nor the echo of his eternal fame nor even yet the murmurs of a sorrowing people. Nellie was by his side, and his hungry, fainting heart fed on her dear love and his soul went back with her to the years long ago. Away beyond the western horizon upon the prairie stands a little home over which the vines trail. All about it is the tall, waving grass, and over yon der is the s ale wuh a legion of chatter ing black b rds perched on the swaving reeds and rushes. Bright wild flowers bloom on every side, the qua;l whistle on the pasture fence, and from his home in the chimney corner tbe cricket tries to chirrup an echo to the lonely bird a call. In this little prairie hom we see a man holding on his knee a little girl, who is telling him of her plav as he smoothes her fair curls or strokes her tinv velvet hands; or perhaps she is singing him one of her baby songs, or asking him strange questions of the great wide world that is new to her; or per haps he binds the wild flowers she has brought into a little nosegav for her new gingham dress, or but we see it all, and so, too, does the soldier, and so does Nellie, and so they hear the black bird's twitter and the quail's shrill call and the cricket's faint echo, and all about them is the sweet, subtle, holy fragrance of memory. And so at last when Death came and the soldier fell asleep forever, Nellie, his little girl, was holding his hand and whispering to him of those days. Hers were the last words he heard, and by the smile that rested on his face when he was dead you might have thought the soldier was dreaming of a time when Nellie prattled on his knee and bade him weave the wild flowers in her curls. grasses. The result mnti neceaaruy M fiAx many of the cattle would perish on the line of msrca and those Qnally reaching the northern ranges, would be in such enfceb.ed condition as to be unable to withstand the rigors of tne nonnem winter, to which they axe unaccustomed. W e desire to em phasize the statement by a furthtr ikei: ibat the atreams ana water holes along the trail are all lower at this season than at any other, and many of them are entirely dry. That the distance re quired to be traveled dv the cattle to these u w langesiafromSOOto 1,200 miles. That the uni versal custom of those engaged in the business of driving cattle from the Indian Territory and Tezes i orthward, is to start them in no cat laitr than April. Experience has shown that cattle put upon the northern range later than August 15th are so reduced by the long drives that tney are unable U gain strength to endure the early winter storms. PIxth A large proportion of the cattle affected by the order have been brought into the Indian lermory this year from Texas. I he quarantine laws of Kansas. Colorado and New Mexico rig idly forbid the admission of such cattle into or their transit across tdtir territory prior to Decem ber 1st. We resptetlully refer you to the recent proclamation of the governor of Kansas in this connection. Seventh The bove are a portion of the diffi culties which confuse us. There are othtr leatures oi the subject which commend themselves to tbe executive consideia tion, among which is the 'act that the rental for all these lands have been paid to the first of No vember of this year. No amount of dnigtnce will enable us to gather up all the cattle during the time allowed, ana the result must be that the uncollected portion will bi lett on the range un protected by theu owneis and su j;Ck to the dtp redations of the Indians. In conclusion we respectfully state, this memo rial is directed, not ujrainst the policy which has been adopted, but against the time whicn has been allowed us to conform thereto. e o a y solicit that measure of protection to our property which is ac ordei to other e tablihed interests The enforcement ot the present onltr can omy result in tbe great injury to ourselves as well as toothers with whom we have b-siiess relatione W e therefore respectfully ask for such time to re move our c ttle as the above fac show to b indispeusible."

Mayor Moore, representing the business men of Kan-as City, presented a number ot reso utions adopted at a recent meeting held in that city. He saia he beli-ved the removal of the cattle at th.s" time would result iu great iujury to the entire country. Col. Denman said he spoke as one interested. He thought the n. moral would result in a loss of over a half to the interest oi those owniae cattle.

Forty days would not be more tban time euouga to buy horses ani employ men and get thing m shape to make the removal. The cattlemen ask ed tnat they might be allowed until spring time to d lve their cattle. Dr. Morrison Munford, manager of the Kansas City Times, was introduced to the president as one ho a' ways opposed the leasing ot tne land-. He said that he had been opposed to such pracuces. and was opposed to th m now, but business mterts b demanded that consideration fchould be giveu to men who were thus ord-red to leave tne resei ations. Kansas City would be injured bj sucn a removal, and he feared that a panic would be the r.sultof the immediate tn fo cemeiitofthe order. Does he himself believe in Bach an as tounding state of affairs?. Bat this is not all; there remains an other point to be considered. It iB fair tp presume that if a man lives to be say 50 years old, that he has oaased the pe riod of greatest danger; "that, in other words, incurable and fatal drunkenness develops and slays somewhere between the ages of 20 and 50. An occasional case may occur below or beyond these limits, but common sense will sunnnrr th triov in general. Now, how many deaths of popi uer ou years oia occurred in the year mentioned? Exactly 180,157. Sup pose these all deducted from the grand total, and we have precisely 178,736 deaths between the ages of 20 and 50, and half these being considered as men, on the principle of offsetting unfortunate women against temperance men, there remain only 89,363 deaths for the vear out of which to peODle the 60.000 rlrnnk- ard's graves. Xne figures look absurd, as they are, when put to the test of accurate knowl edge. There is no doubt a lamentable amount of drunkenness in the country, ana inousanos ot promising lives are an nually wrecked. Nay, more; many hun dreds of deaths ensue directly, and others indirectly, from the excessive use of alcoholic drinks. The actual number of deaths directly resulting from this cause in the year referred to were, males, 1,338, females 254. These figures are frightful enough, in all conscience, and they need no embellishment, no rhetoric tropes or loose exaggerations to intensify their horror, particularly as they may, per haps, be fairly doubled in allowing for the deaths that wnisky caused indirect ly. Let Brother Jones picture in his fer vid language an entire congregation as large as that which listened to the ser mon quoted going down annually into this pit of destruction and he will need no stronger argument. But exaggeration is always weakness. STILL TO THE FRONT! 4 tbW- "ft. 9" . & The President Stands Firm. asked Death with a "1 have made scldier -rhe books?" Cvirnful smile.

FIGURES ABOUT INTEMPERANCE. The Fiction Concerning- the Sixty Thousand Men That Annually Die of Drunkenness. St. Louis Globe-Democrat. Brother Sam Jones, in speaking of the sin of intemperance, said: "Oh, the sin of intemperance! Look at that tramp, tramp, tramp, the boys are marching sixty thousand every year into drunkards' graves. And as this six ty thousand this year go down into drunkards' graves, the recruiting officers of hell are recruiting this army from our boys. That boy of yours, that boy of ours, is marching into the ranks to fill them up, and in less than ten years from to-day your boy will step down and out yonder to a grave and a drunkard's grave and a drunkard's hell." Now, if this meanBanythingmorethau a mere piece of pointless hortation, it is a grave assertion tnat 6U,0UU men annual ly die of drunkenness in the United States. Let us see how such a statement will look when placed in juxtaposition with the actual vital statistics of the conn try, as exhibited in the last decennial census. Tne total population on June 1,1850, was 50,155,783, and the total deaths for the year ending that day were 756,893, or an average of 15.C9 per 1,000 living. Of this large number who died large in fact though small in per centage there died under 5 years of age 302,6ii4, too young, we presume, to be classed ai drunkards, while the total of deaths under 20 years, were 308.000 ex actly. Deduct these latter figures from trie segregate of all ages, and the re mainder, constituting nearly all those of what may be called of drunkable age, is only 356,893, of whom more than half were females, and many thousands pro fessed temperance people. But say, for simplicity of calculation, and setting off the temperance people against the drunk en women, that 180,000 of these were men, it would then appear.takin? Brother Jones' statement as true, that one ont of eery tnree men buried annually in the Anecdotes cr ilenry Clay. Detroit Free Press. "Henry Clay was one of the most fas cinating men I ever met," said Norman J. Emmons to a reporter for the Detroit Free Pres3. "Your speaking of Niagara Falls reminds me of the time I met nim there, away back in '49. I was then pretty young in the profession, with no Very great income, and Joe Clark's invi tation to spend a few days at the falls was hailed by me with all the satisfac tion in the world. "Joe's father was Lot Clark, proprie tor of the Cataract house, and the owner of a big slice of other Niagara Falls prop erty. When I arrived there I found that among the personal guests, of the elder Clark were Henry Clay and his son's wife. You may imagine that to live in the house with the great Ken tuckian, to be in his society daily, and to be talked to by him, was a bonanza for me. What was Clay like?" "Well, it is a hard matter to describe him adequately, for words can never paint the exqaisite charm of his man ner. Before I had been with him long I understood his extraordinary power with the public, but it is impossible for to analyze it. In stature he was very tall, over six feet; his bearing was erect, his face was thin and his nose aquiline, Every movement was the perfection of grace, and with that he unconsciously united a commanding dignity that bespoke the innate greatness of the man. "His voice! Ah, that was wonderful!. I nave never heard another like it melodious, sonorous, rich. Every tone was perfectly modulated, and it fell upon the ear with a sound sweeter than silver bells. His; estures not that studied, oratorical gestures, but thoss which he habitually but involuntarily made in conversation were hardly less expres sive man nis marvelous voice, l ou may think that I am drawing on my imagi nation, or that I am overenthusiastic, but it is a fact that in all my career I never met another man with such win ning ways, such magnetism and charm as Clay's. He was impressive, too, even in his gallantries. "I remember that one of the ladies at the Cataract house on that occasion was Miss Elliott, daughter of Judge Elliott, who presided over a large judicial dis trict in Canada. She was a beautiful girl, not more than 17 or 18 years of age neither child nor woman. Her hair was raven black, and worn in nat ural curls longer than any others I ever saw. She was tall, too, and superbly formed. Her education was remarka ble, and she attracted Mr. Clay's atten tion. He said to me one evening: 'Em mons, who is your friend, the young ladv with the beautiful curls?' "That, Mr. Clay, is Miss Elliott, of j Canada, I replied. 'Ill go fetch her.' "By no means, my dear boy, I'll go to her, was the gallant' response, and tak ing my arm he crossed over with me to where the lady stood, and was presented to her. Considering the fact tnat ne was tne lion of tne hour, an old man full of humors and the idol of thous ands.this characteristic little bit of good breeding has always seemed to me worth remembering. "A few days later I had an equally striking illustration of Mr. Clay's im pressiveness. I had gone out early one morning to the falls, and while contem plating them I felt the approach of some body. There was no sound, not even a shadow, to warn me; but I knew that some one was at hand. I did not change my position nor look around, but pres ently I felt a hand laid on my shoulder. f think no word was spoken for possibly ten seconds. Then Mr. Clay (for it wss he) said simply: 'This scene fills" me with unceasing wonder and admiration.' "His voice, the solemn and majestic import of his words (as he uttered them) and the sudden rush of feeling which the scene, the presence and the senti ment invoked, made me appreciate the littleness of a man and the greatness of God more than anything else in life has done."
