I Ucenco In which the ntlre band of lnvo
hunters and cattle etalr were wiped out
the ruler of the four tribe which had furnish
d fighting men proposed to form a republic
and steel me President of It Mr ambition did
not run that war I knew the natlrt African
woll enough to know that ho would not long
b content with an Innovation Each tribe
had Its own Idioms and custom and a joy
eramnt for the wbol would b certain to
clash somewhere Th power surrendered bl
I the four rulers would Boon bo regretted enl
than would follow plOt and con olraolo and
t off would go mr hed I e very pleasant to
b honored and praised and admired but I
r = decided to let It stop there I therefore dis
I couraged the Idea of a combine eioept against
f common enemr and It woe dropped
I f would be to create
The great rlctorr I won sure or
I ate new enemies and we were soarcelr through
I with our rejoicing when they appeared About
100 miles to the west of us was it ruler named
I XIpitati who had long been hand and gb Ion
Ii with the Slav dealers Most of the men killed
If I the lat battle war of his tribe he baying
hired them to the Arabs for so much a dar
I ruler had extorted heavy
or wok This rle one etrtld a helY
ransom from our four tribes under threat of
marching upon them with I larl army and It
waa now confidently predicted that wo would
root ar from him Aa ooniinsndtrlncnlof
of the Army I did not disband It but added
from the rtstrves enough to tiring the number
lrm
tip to lOCKi men A large number If addition
al lUnge wet made and among the epolla of
slnKI < 10
war there were many spear lead which had
to be prldd with handles We had now a
are number of muiketft than could be lot
together by nil the combined tribes of Africa
and wAil be I watched for Mpstatla coming I
bad no tear of him
Th tint new cam br messenger He
ent three of his warriors to us to ear
that he lad heard all about the mas
macro nnd was determined to revenge
Kcre demanded the return of all the
polls O cattlo O slaves end the hoI
of the whit man who bad led the victorious
troop But for mr efforts the messengers
would have been put to death I gave each
one a present and sent them off with the mos
oo
Page that while we desired to live at peace
with all mankind wo wr stol enough to
take rare uf ourselves We should not go to
attack Mpstnll but 11 lie came to attack us he
must take the consequences As there was no
doubt that ho would com 1 made 1 close sur

With musket Attending these warriors ware

Our cattle bail ad been driven away to a

no a doUbtleSS honest In this u he was a
man nf brutal and wicked temperament and
was never known to show the least bit of merl
to an enemy After the jubilee over It wan

prisoners should die All were defiant and Im
pudent Had they been otherwise I bellere I
should have helped them to escape as several
opportunities to do so occurred during the ton
day 1 refueed to name the manner of death
and on the dar they were executed I went up

When I returned all was over and the bodies
had been dragged away for the bet of prey

No remedy being suggested he smoked away
In silence for two or three minutes and then
continued
I didnt use to hare so much heart about It
always excuslig myself on the plea of duty
but one night about three roar ago some
thing happened which has kept mr heart pret
tr toft ever slnco It was on the run out of
Buffalo and when I came to take up the fares
I came across a woman and child She was
palefaced and poorly clad and she had a
world of trouble her tae I saw that In I
general war but It was not mr business to
mtv her Lbs child with her a boy of 7 or 8
was lying back nn the seat with her old shawl
fur a pillow She offered me one fullfare
ticket to a point about forty mile below but
I demanded one for tbe boy
riease ilrsbe mid we are very Door
and hes only a little chap and Im taking him
borne to die
That wan no excuse and I DJlla told her
that she mutt par for him or hed have to lot

but In that I was mistaken I wan a dark and
rainy night and aked never have got readr to

leave the train at the next stop If shed bad
money to pay for the bor I felt a bit ashamed
when I saw her making ready and It hurt me
to moo her lean over him and both err together
but one of our men had been discharged ont
the week before for overlooking I onelegged
soldier who only wanted a lilt for ten miles
And no one offered to par the boys fare
lor a wonder no There was a full crowd
In the car but alUeomed t look upon the l > alr
with suspicion I hated t put them off and I
was hoping tho woman would make one more
appeal and giro me a show to back water
when the train ran Into oDd Ibo made
ronlr to get off The least I could do was to
tOlor
help her with the boy I picked him up and
darted to follow her out but I bad scarcely
taken notice of hIs while face and tearwet
cheeks when he uttoied a shriek of fear
