A MONTH OF FUN. Hunting and Adventure at Camp Apache. Return of a Sun-Browned and Game-Surf alted Party of Phoenicians. A thrilling novel might be founded on the adventures of MesarB. J. E. Walker, Joe Pratt and Frank Prothero who re turned on Sunday night from a twenty eight days tour to Fort Apache. To say nothing of the hardships of the journey they had a surfeit of fish and wild turkey and fun and that is what thev went after. v They were kindly received and enter tained by Maj. Carroll, commandant at the fort, Capt. Glassford and the other officers. Among the other persons they met was Mr. Van Allen who enjoys a monop oly of the meat market at the fort. On the strength of an earlier acquaintance with Mr. Prothero he decided that nothing was too good for the tourists. Everything was free to them and not wishing to impose upon his friendli ness and hospitality they had to sneak away to avoid an offer from him at the last "moment of an interest in his busi ness. The intricacies of the U. S. A. can teen aystem was thoroughly explained to tbem by the officers and the last day of their stay there was spent in per fecting their information upon a sub ject which is, alas, imperfectly under; stood. The tourists had heard nothing of the murder of Horace Philley until they reached the Tonto country on their return. Though here was a slight suspicion in that vicinity that Philley's death was a belated incident of the Pleasant Val ley war, the prevalent opinion was that he bad been murdered by the Kid or at least by an Indian. A cattleman in the neighborhood of Mt. Reno or Mt. Ord had observed "Indian signs" a week before the murder was committed. H hd found a calf from big herd butchered on the mountain. The side had been cut out after the manner of an Indian butcher. There were a half dozen places where fires had been kin dled and the economy shown in the matter of asheB and smallneBS of the fires proved that they had been kindled by Indians. The location of the camp was such that the Indian could lee down the road for miles and could have observed Philley and his pack animals which alone would have tempted the renegade to add another murder to his list. ' On the way to the reservation Messrs. Walker, Pratt and Prothero encountered a troop of cavalry out on a hunt for the Kid. Word liad ' been brought to the Post by the scientist, Montgomery, who eaid he "had met the renegade and talked with him. The fact that Mont gomery's possessions consisted only of two mules and an almost exhausted pack probably saved' his 'life, for it is eaid that even the Kid will not commit murder out of pure wantonness. The soldiers had but little faith in Montgomery's story for the reason that when the Indian was last heard from he was in the southeastern part of the ter ritory and they were unable to conceive that be could have reached the reserva tion without being observed at some point along the route. At the time they were hunting for him he must have crossed the Sierra Anchas and Ton to Basin and have been lying in wait on Mount Renu. The day before the party reached Fort Apache an exciting episode occurred at the camp. An attempt was made by a Chiricahua In dian to steal a squaw. He kidnapped her, mounted a pony with her and made oil. Her cries alarmed other squaws in the vicinity and they in turn alarmed the camp. A pursuit was hastily organized by a party of scouts. The pursuers came eo close upon the In dian that he was compelled to drop his prey. This Chiricaua was a member of tleronimoH baud ami liaii been cap tured with the murderous old chief. When the Indians were taken east this one jumped from the train near Albu querque and escaped. He had been known to be on the reservation for some months, but had not oefore at tempted any nun of depredation. This pleasure trip of Messrs Walker, Pratt and Prothero was marred by only one unpleasant incident. On their re turn they were shocked by a rude Apache who violated all rules of decency by presenting himself before them clad only in a cartridge belt and a Winches ter. . PERSONAL.

Some of the difficulties of living up to a disguise are illustrated in an old story recently printed in Blackwood's Magazine. It is part of a lady s journal kept in the year 1839, and tells her ex perience in visiting the Tennyson fami ly in the guise of a lady's maid. Her friend, Mrs. Neville, who was invited to make the visit, could not afford a maid or a nurse for her little girl, so the young woman volunteered to act in that capacity under the name "Marion Langlais." They both belonged to the same literary club which included Mary and Emily Tennyson, says the New York Sun, but as she had never met them she considered herself safe from suspicion. She arranged her pretty tresses under a coarse black wig, and quite transformed herself into a con ventional lady's maid. As soon as they arrived at the poet's house her troubles began. She was expected to sleep with the housemaid, and aside from her unwelcome company she found it awkward to dispose of her black wig, and had to wait for the wondering girl to fall asleep before she could settle herself for the night. After a few days she was called upon to appear in the dining-room as waitress, and ha d her first glimpse of the poet. Her journal says: "I was to wait at table, and my heart beat so fast as I went in that I could hear nothing else for a few minutes, for on entering the room I saw Alfred Tennyson at last! And Frederick, Horatio, Emily, Mary and the mother. Was it a delusion that 1 stood there behind them, changing their plates, helping them, and they so little dreaming of my identity with the serv ant 'Marion?' Was I asleep when the maid of all work thrust a handful of dirty forks into my hand and bid me 'cut and wash 'em quick and bring 'em up?' I did do all this many times before dinner was over, and, though I did it very well, my hand shook so the first time I took Alfred Tennyson's plate that I thought it must be seen. The romance of the affair rushed over me." The poet began to observe her very closely after this, and she became so nervous that she nearly forgot her part. One day as she was passing the open door of his room, where he lay smok ing and reading, he called her in and asked her to bring him a book from downstairs. He attempted to describe it, but it was a German work and he thought she could not read it. "I know," she said, and quickly went down and brought it to him. "So you understand G.rnian," he said, and she gave an evasive reply and left the room. That evening at dinner Tenny son could not draw a cork from a beer bottle and after everyone had tried and failed lie said to Mrs. Neville: "Where is your Marion? She can do it; she can do everything, from reading German to waiting at table. Let her try." Marion came, and, amid a chorus of apologies and explanations, she drew the cork. Another day at dinner she was sum moned to the fable for some trivial rea son and it was' found out afterwards that it was to settle a dispute about the color of her eyes. Eventually her identity was revealed and the family took the trick all in good part. Mrs. F. A. Cooley, B. O., is organiz ing her classes in elocution, physical culture and delsarte. Gilson block.
