Athens, Friday, June 5, 1874.'
A Case of Coiihtraiiwil Cremation.
A passenger who camo down on tlic
Tellico Narrow CJnuo a few days ;o
tells a story nlmoit loo horrible for be
lief. Ilecetns that an Illicit distiller
named .Tone, who lived with Mi family
near the lower bench of I ho Dig Stnofcey
mountain, had been nunoyed a good
deal by the rcrcuuo ranger last fall
and determined to change his location
and luslnem to a more secluded spot.
To carry out thin purpose ho selected
the bead of a deep gorgo some four
miles distant, walled In with cliff,
where, during tho winter, assisted by
some friends bo erected a small log
building. As noon an tho cold weather
was over and spring fairly opened, the
still and other thlnps necessary were
moved to the place, nird tho work of
.violating tho icvenuo laws was resum
ed. Several "runs'' wcro made, and
Jones begun to congratulate himself
that he had at last found a haven of safe
ty, a refuge beyond the prying eyes of
tho government hirelings, where bo
could puruo his avocation in peace,
with nono to molest or make hi in afraid.
Hut, alas! how little we know even of
tho Immediate future, and how often do
the very steps which tho transgressor
takes to insure concealment and safety,
load to his swift and certain destruction 1
Tho still houso being somo dibtance
from whero his family lived, Jones
rarely visited them moro than or.ee a
fortnight, generally selecting Saturday
night for that purpose Everything went
on well enough until about four weeks
ago, when ho failed to appear at the ac
customed time. Nothing was thought
of this for a day or two, but when ano
ther week elapsed without tho roturu of
Joiici tho family becamo alarmed, and
thought perhaps ho had been captured
by tho revenue jayhawks and carried to
Knoxvillo, or somo other place, where
violators of the law are occasionally con
victed and punished. Tho alarm was
given among tho sparsoly settled neigh
borhood. A small number of men gath
ered, and, accompanied by Mrs. Jones
and her son, a youth ton or twelve years
of ago, they started up tho gorgo In the
direction of tho still house On reach
ing tho building they found tho door
closed and fastened, and no sign of Jones
or any ono else could bo seen. Mrs.
J. called tho namo of her husband sev
eral limes ; no response, however, camo
back to relievo her anxiety. Tho still
ncss of death pervaded the gloomy spot.
Jut upon attempting to force an en
trance they wore greeted with those pe
culiar notes of warning which tho car
of thclCast Tennessee mountaineer never
fails to recognize. Tho door was at once
broken down, and a sight met them that
caused all to start with fright and hor
ror. Tho form of tho distiller lay upon
tho floor, with eyes starling from their
Rockets, tho features horribly distorted,
and body swollen totwlco its usual pro
portions, while tho whole interior of tho
building was alivo with rattlesnakes
some In coil and ready for battle, bif.
tho larger proportion stupid and inert
as though they had been imbibing lib
erally of the 1 1 1 let fruit of tho still. The
mother and son fled hdrror-slrickon
from tho place. A consultation was had,
and as it was impossible to rescue the
body of poor Jones without incurring
fearful risk, it was determined to re
close tho ontranco, and other apertures,
and (1 ro tho building; which was done.
The party stayed until tho houso was
entirely consumed and nothing remain
ed but tho now useless still and the cal
cined I ones of the miserable distiller.
It is supposed (hat Jones had built
his manufactory close upon a den of
tho deadly reptiles in tho overhanging
cliff, and that, attracted by the heat, or
possibly tho fumes of tho whiskey,
they found their way into tho building
in largo numbers after ho had closed tho
door and laid down (o sleep. His hor
rible fttto has created a profound sensa
Hon among tho pcoplo of tho hill coun
try, and it is likely to bo somo time be
foro another illicit nini-mill is erected
in that rango. Wo tell tho story sub
stantially as It was told to us. Our In
formant, notwithstanding ho bad an
odor of "bllod corn" about him fragrant
as tho real dew of tho mountain, look
ed liko a candid and truthful man, and
closed with tho suggestive and senten
tious remark that "whisky is a mighty
dangerous thing to fool with iu any
way."

The Ojibwaj's Kevenge.
Twenty year ago, on a level plain in
Minnesota, there stood a cabin, rudely
built ot log. andapUttered with clay,
which was inhabited by three as villain
ous creatures as ever disgraced the hu
man race.
Tho names of thtso men were Nick
Atkins, Kill Hardy, and Frank Mercer.
They lived by trapping, and selling the
skins of luch'animals as they could cap
ture at tho next trading post, generally
for whisky.
The cabin was frequently the scene of
orgies which might rival the spoils of
Iho inhabitants of the infernal regions.
Shouts, whoops, yells and rursr-a sound
ed out, until, overcome by the funics of
tho liquor, tho inmates would sink into
tho deep sleep of drunkenness.
Not far from this spot were the lodge
of the Ojibway Indians, ruled by a
chief who boro the name of Ued Knife.
The red men looked with horror upon
the conduct of the throo drunken trap
pers, and kept as fur aloof from them
as was possible.
One lovely morning, (ho three men
sallied out to exatniuo their traps. Tho
beautiful landscape spread out before
them might have softened the heart of
tho most hardened rilliau, bul they had
no thought for tho glorious prospect.-
Ilalf-crazcd by the vile stuff which they
had been drinking, they marched alnntf.
Intermingling their conversation with
a continued stream of oaths and ob
scenely. Every trap was visited, but In no one
of them was any game found. Cursing
their Ill-luck, they set out to follow tho
courso of a small stream near at hand,
and, on turning a sharp bend, came sud
denly upon tho lodges of Red Knife and
his followers.
Hut tho chief and his braves were no
where visible. Onlyafew squaws and
children wero seated In front of the
camp, who glanced up for a moment,
and then resumed their work with the
characteristic Indian indillerenct'.
"Iioys," said Hill Hardy, "Hod Knife
has gone oil' with his men. and he must
have left somo furs round hero some
whero; supposo wo help ourselves to a
few, to make lip for our bad luck to
day." "Agreed," said the other two ruffians,
in a breath, and Nick Atkins, stepping
up to tho wife of the chief, said : "Look
hero, old woman, show us whero the
chief keeps his furs, and be quick about
it, too."
The squaw only answered by a shake
of tho head.
. "Well, if you cau't toll in, we can find
out for ourselves," said Atkins, prepar
ing to enter tho principal lodge.
In an instant tho squaw sprang to her
feet, and administered a push which
sent the trapper reeling from tho spot.
Crazed with drunken rago tho ruffian
leveled his riflo, and pulled tho trigger,
and with a wild cry tho squaw fell
dead, whilo tho other women fled panic
stricken from tho spot.
A 8 cooly as though it was a dog that
they had shot, tho trappers entered tho
lodge. A valuable utoro of Itirs re
warded their search, and after plunder
ing tho camp they departed, loaded
with spoils.
Long and loud wero tho revels at tho
log cabin that night. Hut at last the
trappers lay In a stupid sleep of intoxi
cation. They awoko to find themselves firmly
bound, whilo around them stood fifty
srrini and silent warriors, headed by
Ued Knife.
Fierce eyes glared at them, and many
of the braves seemed to wish to destroy
them on the spot, but tho warning ges
ture of the stern chief restrained them.
All day they were kept closely con
fined, but when evening camo they
wero carried out, still firmly bound,
and left lying upon tho open prairio.
All around them were heard tho howl
ing of tho hungry wolves, and the
wretched men saw bnt two plainly the
awful fate that was iu storo for them.
At midnight, wild sercanii,dospairing
prayers, moans and frantic curses were
heard upon the prairie. Thou followed
a silence broken only by tho growls of
the wolves, as thoy quarreled over their
prev.
When morning dawned nothing re
mained of tho unfortuuato men savo
their bones, and thus fearfully did tho
Ojibway satiato his revenge.

The farmers of Aberdeen, Scotland,
practiso tfio following method for
cm inr butter, which gives it great su
periority over that of their neighbors :
Tako two ouart8 of tho best common
salt, ono ounco of sugar, and 0:10 ounce
saltpetre; tako ono ounco or this com
position for one pound of butter, work
well in tho mass and closo up for uso.
Tho butter cured with this mixture- ap
pears of a rich, marrowy substanco and
fino color, and acquires a little dark
ness. Dr. Anderson says : I have eaten
tho butter cured with tho above com
position that has been kept for four
years, and it was as sweet as it was at
first. It must bo noted however, that
butter that is thus cured requires to
stand throo weeks or a month before it
It Is used. If it Is sooner opened, tho
salt Is not sufficiently blended with it,
and somtlmes tho coolness of the nllro
will bo porcelvcd, which totally disap
pear! afterwards.
A noted brokor, who hesitates in bis
speech lately gavo an excellent ndvico
about investment. A friend said to
him :
