THE ROMANCE OF CRACKER'S NEGK. i t COLONEL GEORGE TV, 8YM0ND3. That turbulent and tortuous stream the Little Sandy river coils itself & m pletely around a rocky plateau of about 10,000 acres area, in tne Western corner of Elliott county, Kentucky, tho waters of the river being divided by a narrow etrip of crumbled cliff. From time im memorial this peninsula has borne the enphoEious name of "Cracker's Neok." It is a wild and gloomy spot, it you follow the boundaries of the plateau and view it from the opposite bank of the river. Walled in on all side3 by frowning c!iffs, rising nearly perpen dicular to the height of 300 feet, their upper edge fringed b,y a heavy growth of stunted firs and laurel bushes, it cer tainly has a foib:dding look. If jou have the curiosity to explore the plateau and climb the summit of the crumbling cliff at the point of jointure with the mainland, the aspect changes. Ten years ngo there was a thick growth of heavy timbor on the ,,neckJ,, but it has all been cleared away, ana a vista of fertile fields and neatly fenced planta tions sweep away on all sides to the cliff edges, whicn are still bordered bv the lanrel and fir growth. Evidences of civilization in the way of comfortable houses and stables and sheep flocks cropping the succulent herbage are seen on every hand. The country surround ing this plateau is rocky and sterile and the fertile neck rises up like an oasis in the mountain desert. It instinctively strikes the imaginative beholder as a fine spot for romance, and the "Romance of Cracker's Neck" I now propose to tell. Immediately after the closo of the late war a man named Peter J. Living stone, who had commanded a regimen of guerrillas on the Confederate side, purchased the neck for a nominal sum, cleared away the timber, laid off fields, built roads and erected houses and openeda store jaht on the verge of the crumbling cliff, down which you clamb ered to reach the mainland. He cut down this cliff and graded a read to the farther edge of the plateau, with lateral feeders running off on either side. He brought his family here, installed them in a luxurious home, and began a flour ishing business, the basis of which was timber, great tracts oL whioh were owned by him on the mainland. The geographical situation of the "neck" was an admirable one for business purposes, it being a eort t of half-way station between the undeveloped riohes of wild Kentucky and capital which stretched out eager hands toward the new-old country from the other side of the Ohio river. He speedily drew about him an enormous trade and acted as a factor for the whole of the back coun try. He was an affable, pleasant-mannered ma a and made friends. At this time Mountain Kentucky was in a str.te of anarchy, Law and order were but little regarded, and the woods were filled with armed men engaged in those terrible family feuds which have made the dark and bloody ground famous. It was the favorite rendez vous, too, for a much worse class of criminals. Thieves and counterfeiters made their headquarters among the wild gorges and deep forests from whioh they emerged, at frequent In " fcevrsisr to prey on the fatness of the rich blue-grass country but a few miles distant. Robberies were of frequent occurrence, and stolen horses and cattle were .stampeded out of the low country by the hundred head. They would be secreted here until the hue and cry was over, and then conveyed across the Ohio river and sold. It was known to the authorities that the desperadoes were well organized, and alPefforts to break up the gang were fruitless. During all this time Colonel Peter J. Livingstone flourished and waxed rich, and no one suspeotei that he bad a hand in the lawless acts which ware fact driving honest people out of the mountains, and deterring others from coming in to take their places. Peter J. Livingstone's business pros pered bo well that it was not long before he had competition. Two Vir ginians, father and son, named Malone, set up a store on the mainland, directly on the road to Livingstone's store, and much of the trade which hitherto of necessity had gone to him was directed to the new establishment. The falling off in his business enraged Colonel Livingstone beyond measure, and ho bad an open quarrel with the Malones. After this quarrel the two firms tried to injure each other in the way of trade as much as possible. Livingstone made threats that he would break up the Malones, and drive them from the county. In the spring of 1877 Malone's store was broken into and robbed of several hundred dollars' wcrtlrcf goods, and Colcnei Livingstone gloried in the discomfiture of his rivals over their loss. A few months afterwards a fire broke out inMalone's store, but was happly extinguished before much damage was done. After thii second misfortune one of Mai one's clerks, a middle-aged man named Jasper Breed ing, slept in the store to guard his em ployers property. Breeding was at his post one night in tho fall of 1877. The hour was late and he was asleep. A noise in the store-room aroused hm, and he jumped out of bed to find the store in flames. Through the curling smoke ho saw two men hastily leaving the building by the front door, and heard them close and lock the door behind them. He realized that escape in that direction was cut off. Malone & Co. had consid erable ready money on hand, and this money was in a large safe which stood in the office. Breeding had the key of the safe, and opened it to pave the money. The safe was empty. He picked up a package of .bilk on the floor near tho pafe, whioh had been dropped by tho thieves in their flight. There was a rear door to the building, wuiou ws secured irom ino insiae Dy means of a box. The fPioke was stifling, and Breeding opened this door to escape, only to find the doorway blocked by bales of hay, which bad been rolled up against the end of the otuicung. na tried to lorce a way through the barricade, but failed. The fire was now at his heels, and the smoke so dense that ho could hardly breathe. Happily, he called to mind at this critical moment a small window on the side of the building. Groping his way to this last loophole of escape, he forced open the shutters, raised the f-ash and leaped oat not a moment too soon. When he turned to survey the burning bailding the long roof trem bled and-fell in with a crash, and the flames leaped high into the air. Nothing was Baved but the package of money. The burning, which' was evidently done to hi J e robbery and at tlw samo timt commit murder, created consider able excitement among the better class of citizens in Elliott connty, and tho next day a meeting was called to take measures to hunt down the criminals. With a stern sense of retribution this meeting was held on tho charred frag ments of MaloEe k Co.'s store. Money was raised on the spot and a detective was sent for to ''work up" the case. Tho next night a meeting of citizens was held at Martinsburg, the seat of Elliott county. This meeting was secret, and its deliberations wero not made public. The detective went to work on the case andcauBed the arrest of three men, charging them with complicity in the burning. One of the parties arrested by name John Kimball was a rospec tableand comfortably well-to-do farmer, who had hitherto borne a good reputa tion. His companions, Henry Ormsby and Bill McMillan, were both men of little character. Ormsby was a Ten nessean, and had served one term in the state penitentiary at Nashville. McMil lan ne'er-do-well, who subsisted by hunting, fishing and logging, with an occasional job at wood-chopping, or farming. All Ihreo were placed in the jail at Martinsbnrg. All three were friends and partisans of Cjlonel Living b tons tone, and the latter engaged a lawyer to defend them and made ar rangements to bill them out of jail. He boasted that money would do any thing, and with truth, too; for the judi ciary was corrupt, and tho officers of the law servile and easily intimidated. Another secret meeting of citizens was held and dark mutterines wero hoard on every hand. The detectivo whose identity, by the way, was never discovered, and is unknown to this day, savo by the few who employed him followed up the clew which he had unearthed. He know-that he had to deal with desperate men, who would stoop to any crime to shield themselves from punishment, and he went among the suspected parties thoroughly disguised. Profess ing to be a farmer "pal" of Ormsby's, anxious to extricate his old partner from his present difficulty, ho gradu ally wormed his way into the confidence of the men whom he suspected of being concerned in the burning, and one night was admitted into their counsels. What was his surprise and amazement to find that the men in jail were members of a regularly organized and thoroughly disciplined gang of counterfeiters, housebreakers and cattle and horse thieves, whose chief and moving spirit was Colonel Peter J. Livingstone. This gang numbered about three hundied members, and many of them were men whose characters had never been attaint ed even by suspicion. Jubilant over tho success he had achieved, and confident that ho had evidence enough to cause tho convic tion of the whole gang, the detective hastened the next day to Martinsbnrg to secure warrants and a posse of arrest. When he reached the town ho found that one of the men in jail (Ormsby) had confessed to everything, which he the (detective) had learned tho night before, and that the other two prisoners McMillan and Kendall had been taken from the jail and hanged by a mob of about five hundred masked men, whioh had issued a proclamation justifying the act, and made known for the first time the existence of the "Regulators." The story of this execution, "by com mand of Judge Lynch," is a brief one. The two secret meetings whioh had been held by the citizens of Elliott county, were for the purpose of organizing a "society of public protection and jus tice." One of tho most prominet citizens of the county was at its head. Every man of standing, every man who loved order and respected the law in the county en rolled himself in the new order." Its spfes were more ubiquitous than the hired detective, and brought to the chief of the order startling intelligence. Livingstone's gang was becoming fright ened, and had resolved on heroic measures for the succor of their brethren in durance vile. They had resolved to anticipate the law's slow delay, and resoue their friends by force. At the same time it was intended to burn Mar tinsburg and shoot down all opposition. The generalissimo of the "Regulators" knew that Peter J. Livingstone was at j the head of the order. He had wrung a confirmation of this Knowledge from Ormsby and from Kendall and Mc Millan. He was provided with a list of the members cf the gang. The lodge, in solemn conclave, voted to mete out impartial justice to all evil doers. Sentence of death was pronounced on Kendall, McMillan, Livingstone, Lewis Binion, John Binion and John Boggs. Other members of the gang receivedsen tences varjing from five to one hundred lashes on the bare back and notice to quit the State. The lodge rode into Martinsburg at midnight, armed and disguised; they forced the jailer to de j jvgrjin tha feeys of the jail, and brought forth Kendall SPd McMillan to suffer the extreme pemUty of lynch law. The frightened wretches confessed everv- t.Ttitnar imnlinsfAil Tiirinrretnno in rrrr nTn;nrp u7.7lr i, Joimons and Bosgs. and were hung up . to a walnut tree in the Court Houee j yard. A proclamation was posted in several prominent places threatening evil doers and their friends and sympa thizers with the vengeance of the Regu lators. After hanging the two prisoners the band quietly dispersed. The execution created considerable excitement, but no effort was mado to bring the lynchers to justice. The night following they captured Louis Binion and hung him to a ladder set up against his own house. Others of the gang were visited and whipped and ordered to leave tho state. For a month the Regulators were every night whipping and hang ing, John Binion took to the " bush," and one night endeavored to get out of the county. He and Boggs were to leave together. The latter was a hunter and fisherman, and the place of rendez vous of the two proscribed "men was a log cabin which Boggs sometimes occupied on his hunting excursions. The Regulators learned of the move ments of the two men and sought to check their flight. They surrounded the cabin and demanded an uncondi tional surrender. Binion and Boggs refuged to give themselves up. The ; regulators fired a volley into the cabin, brofce down the door, shot Boggs dead and wounded Binion. Binion begged for mercy, but they laughed his prayer to scorn. A rope was placed about his neck, and howling and praying he was dragged to the nearest tree. They strung him up, and as he writhed under the cruel, choking rope, fired a volley into the swinging body and ended the wretch's misery. Tho arch criminal Livingstone, how over, escaped them. It appears that ho learned of the hanging of the two men in Martinsburg and their betrayal of him that same night, and making hasty preparations he fled across the Big Sandy into West Virginia. He remained in hiding for several weeks, wound up his business, colleoted to gethr all the ready money he coul 1 realize and went to TexaB, in one of the frontier towns of which state he is now lecated. The rest of the gang fled the state. A great deal of stolon property was recovered by the detective and re turned to the owners. The property on " Cracker's Neck " was divided up and sold by Livingstone's son, after which the young man went to Texas to join his sire. The now order inoreased its membar ship and established subordinate lodges in o ther counties. It restored order and made law respected. It drove out the desperadoes, thieves and outlaws, and mado it possible for an honest man to live in Elliott county. As an evidence ofwhat terror of evil-doing was in spired by the Regulators it is said that a man could lay down a thousand dollars in tho middle of the road anywhere in tho county and leave it there for weeks without fear of its being picked up, because, as a mountaineer quaintly ex pressed tt to the writer : " Thar's no tellin, mister, how many rifles mought be coverin' thet some thousan' dollahs, nor how quick a man mought see kingdom kum.

Yes, Ameri cans were the first to manufacture fine Boda water fountains, and we now ship them to all points in Europe and even to Australia." "What do fountains cost?" "All the way from 100 to 2,000." A prominent down-town druggiBt was asked about the purity of so-called soda water and of the syrups used with them. 'It is two-thirds bogus," he replied. "Soda water as usually prepared con tains no soda in any form. Pure water with carbonic acid gas is all that it is. Bicarbonate of soda is sometimes used. Nearly every druggist makes his own soda water, and I know of one case in which the proprietor of a large drug store has sunk an artesian well for the purpose of having plenty of water." "What about syrups ?'' "In most cases they are unfit for drink, positively injurious, and verv often made from an inferior quality of drugs. The so-called pure fruit syrups, in nine cases out of ten, do not contain a smell of the fruit they are supposed to be made of, but they are concocted wuith sch skill as to deceive the sensi tive taste." "How many soda water stands are there in New York ?'' "Thouf ands ; one place alone that I know of sold over 3,000 gla3ses of soda a day last summer. Profitable? Well, I should think so."

The party engaged in the east end of the tunnel, therefore, concluded to make ahort work, and resorted to tha usual method of blasting. Notwithstanding their proximity to tho party approaching in the opposite direotion, not tho slightest notifica tion was given thorn of tho intended blast, and two hundred and fifty kegs of powder were ignitod, which penotratod the strong wall which had hitherto divided the workmen. Through the stupid blunder three men wero instantly killed, two havingtheir heads blown off, while five others wero horribly injured and ten others slightly. Tho party numbered forty men, and how any of them escaped with their lives is miraculous. Washincton: Tho general deficiency appropriation bill was reported to the House.
