There glides through the barn’s mammoth door, A sweet-scented hill-top of hay; An whine, with strength bubbling o'er, Now flings it in forkfuls away, Another i-> s’owing it bark. With while pearls of toil on his brow ; And. trea ting the hav in his track, Looms faint!v the boy in the mow. Through crevices often can he View, past the old l*arti wall of brown, A river that leads to the sea. A railway that drives to the town. “Oh when shall my fortune make hsy In yon fields of splendor, and how? Twill wait for full many h day ; I'm only a hoy in a mow." A cloud like a flag from the sky Is splendidly spread and unrolled. The sun readies down irotn on high, To fiim.e it wi h silver and gold “Oh, when will Heaven’s mercy my name As bn.lit as those colors allow ? But earth has no glory or fame To waste on a boy in the tuoW. A cloud in the west, like a pall, Creeps upward, and hangs in the light; It i-arnes a gloom over all. It looks like it part of the night. With clamor the thunder-bolts swarm, And trees hend in agony m>w ; “ ’Tis thus, too, that Poverty’s storm Would coimutr the boy iu the mow!’’ The clouds have grown into * dream, 1 lie hiids are diaeoursing »n glee, The smile ot ihe sun is itgieam On river and hilltop and tree, Look up to the heavens, little lad.

Onr rnsllina Pallto Iiip uor.icu T.iIiIm ( !li inf firm. rie, a distance of 14 miles. The ground seemed as level as a floor, and the grass stood knee deep, and was parched and withered in the hot sun. We threw off the saddles, watered and staked out the horses and spent an hour over our rations and pipes. “If it was me alone,” said Joe, as we began saddling up, "I’d take to the right and skirt that grass.” “Why?” asked the sergeant. “Bekase of that—and that—and them ar,” answered the old man as he pointed to a signal smoke in the rear of us, an other away to the left, and to lour or live vultures sailing high in the sky to the south. The Indians Imd crossed our trail miles to the north. They could not hope to overhaul us, hut they were signaling t<> their friends to the south of us. '1 he south signaled to the east, and as we stood gazing a column of smoke rose high in the air to the west. It was the Indian telegraph lineal work to capture or destroy us. Even as we counted the vultures and made five of them, the num ber was increased to six—seven—eight— ten. They scented a feast. “Too late now I” muttered Joe, and he surveyed the signals. “Heady, hoys ? Then we drive straight across, and never a one of us will live to see the sun go down! Down with them h*ankets and give 'em a good soakin’ in the creek be fore you mount!” When ready we struck right across the .. . •• t • in iff ceuiru ui uie jirairu.*, iumu^ jjiuc *u'»uir uin for our guide. We kept our horses at a steady canter, making about ten miles an hour, and were within two miles of the base of the mountain when a horde j of Indians suddenly rose out of the earth across our path. They had been conceal- j ed in a natural sink. Tnere must have j been a full hundred of them, and we had scarcely come to a halt before they had ' us surrounded on three sides. The route by which we had come was still open, and the sergeant was about to give the order \ to fall back when the old scout command-' ed: “Down with you and make ready fora rush! If you fall back they’ll hev your' jrour scalp inside ol two miles ! Can’t you see that’s what they hcv planned fur?": In two minute* the horses were down and were ready. The Cheyennes did uot ; come. Seven white men, armed with car I bines aud revolvers, would bring mourn ing to many lodges before the last one went under. Tney would have charged two or three. They would have circled four or five. They knew California Joe, and had set a price upon his head. They would have given much to capture h m alive, but to know that he was (lead i would be cam for great rejoicing. They! jeered and taunted him. 'i hey called us white squaws and dogs, fbey shouted out that they could see tears on our face* and note that our guns trembled as we took aim. “What sort of a move are they mak ing?" queried the -ergennt a.i those on the flanks spread out further. “Ever biu roasted alive?' answered Joe. “No." *• Wf, ytfc IfrU $A^n* b*S e'ertf l Tttt’S their dodge—to fire the grass and roast j as. I ’spected that sort of deviltry when ! I told the boys to wet their blankets.— Thpy won't save us, though—too much j grass. Them bucks out on the flanks ar’ thar to head us off’ if we try to make , a break.” I turned my gaze upward as the thought j of the vultures came to my mind, ami the ten had increased to nineteen. Tney J were sailing in a circle and lower than • before. “No perticler hurry jisl at present,” continued Joe as he reached for his plug j of tobacco and began shaving it ofl and : filling his pipe. “ They will send some one out to demand our surrender fust. G<md !; The wind is droppin’ a little. Sergeant, | how does the sky look to the north ? ' “A cloud creeping up.” "G »in' to be a change, but not soon •nuff. Tlmr comes the critter who wants us to swaller his promise and surrender our scalps." A chief detached himself from the force in front and rode toward us with one hand rai.-ed as a sign of peace. lie was only tell rods away when he halted. He at first imperiously demanded our sur render. No one answered him, but J>»e a-ked of the sergeant: “Any change in the sky "There’s a small black cloud which looks us if it might bring a squall." Tbe chief indulged in threats, but as they were unheeded be turned to promis es. He offered to let the rest of us go il we would give up the scout. "Cloud spreadin’ any sergeant ?” a«ked Joe, as he brought out his matchbox and handed a splint to every man he could reach. “Yes, and here comes the wind, from ii ; “Hold steady ! I’m goin’ to lift that Injiii. The minute I fire light them matches and slick ’em in ilie grass! Drat I he creature, but lies oil! Ilcady with your matches!” The drv grass almost exploded as the flames touched it. A wave of fire ran to the south and spread away to east and west with such incredible swiftness that we stood amazed. Inside of sixty see onds the tierce gusts which swept down from the cloud had carrie 1 that wave to the cedars at the base of the mountain. In another instant the timber on the mountain was ablaz*. Tnerc was one grand yell from the Indians as the smoke had them, and I heard Joe strangling and shouting : “Kiver your heads and the heads of the bosses, a nl"we'll come out all right!” S > we did. A q tarter of an hour later the squall had settled into a fresh breeze, which mile 1 the sm »ke against and over the m mutaiiH hut it was long after dark before tho It ir.ses would take to the hot ground. Between the spit we ha I occu pied and the base of the mountain we counted right an I left of our path twen ty two blackened heaps on the gray b ack surface of the prairie. Suite were 'lie b i lies of Indians, some of p mies. There were plenty of heaps we did not s e in the darkness,—enough, as we learned u year later, to make the loss almost a death blow to Wnite Dig’s baud.

A correspondent wr iting about the orators , in the Uoitad States Senate says that the only one of the old school left is Daniel, of Virginia, who alf-cts the style of Henry 01 iv. iirranai iif his rhetorical climaxes mid developing exor limns and perorations with el iborately balance I sentences Gorman, Gray and White chi the Democratic side are listened to with the mo-t attention, Gorman talking common sense in n well-modulated voice; Gray being iinpre-aive bec«u*e of, his profttund legal knowledge, and White because of his good voice, ti ie presence, and pertinent figure t»f speech. On the liepub- i lican side of the chamber Wolcott, ol Col orado, is always sure of an audience, his breezv, unconventional remarks and bril- j limit and cutting wit being a novelty In the Senate. Sherman is effective, but largely because of his mentality, for he haa u curi- j ous impediment of speech, which is remote ly suggestive of a lisp, and he halts and stumbles over bis sentences sometimes — Senator Hoar’s weakness of voice perhaps prevents him from being the most redoubt able speaker in the Senate, for his remarks are always to the point and expressed in English that i- a delight to listeu to.

Magnificent Edifice So to Being Erected In II ttslilnglnn. The congressional library at Washing ton is slowly approaching completion, so Curas applies to the superstructure and general outline. Its massive dome was erected this season, and the sun glisten ing on its bright white metal roof is seen down the Potomac miles away. The building is 463 by 336 feet, not emoting the main entrance and stairway, which projects 36 feet beyond the rectan gular lines. I he long corridors and groat rooms, together with the massive walls, in the present rough interior, give tne impression of a fortress. The other portions of the building are dwarfed when compared with the reading room under the great dome which towers over 100 feet overhead. The building is built around a hollow square, the outerportiou or curtain being only 35 feet wide from the ex’erior wall to the courts within. The spar* inclosed by the four curtains is ab >ut 363 by 235 feet. In tlic mid lie of this rectangle is built the grand octagonal reading room Connecting the reading room with the curtain are three wings running north, cast and south, dividing the unoccupied space into tour spacious courts, 161 feet long by 100 wide. The wings leading from the reading to the outer curtain are of uniform height with the remainder ol the building, three stories and a base ment. They are given up entirely book stacks and are arranged with floors about six feet apart and narrow nlcovis, which will enable attendants to find any book without disturbing his neighbor. The architectural style of the library of Congress is Italian renaissance, like ilint of ns companion structure, the INu* lionnl Capitol. 1 lie wails are a cold gray granite, which from a distance is not unlike marble. The first story is rough hewn, the atone laid in courses like the gray bricks. There is no carving on tbi stury except a frieze, which marks the line of the first and second stories. Tin simic of (he hitter story is cut rough, anil a w ider and more elaborate frieze m pa rates it from the upper story, which is finely cut and carved. 1 he cornice uiul, the frieze over the third story windows are beautifully carved in simple, chaste designs. This description applies to three eh • vatiotis id the building, the north, ea?t, and south. On the corners there ate more carving and other corner effects, in cluding curved luces on the keystone of tlie arches over the windows of the sec tmd story. Three faces form a most interesting series embracing a character istic countenance representing every dis tiactive race and people on the earth, and in an t ffective way demonstrating tin cosmopolitan character of a temple erect cd lor the preservation of useful know! edge. The west front, which laces tho Capi tol, is perhaps the most hcuutilnl archi tecturul cfleet in America. Following the general style of the other three eleva lions,it bi gins un the ground floor with a rough hewn l>u.-e growing more elaborate as it rises. The fourth story is licbly carved. The columns, in pairs, huge fingers of granite, a single piece I mm bu-e to capital, support a cornice that might have liteu dug Irom thesaertd Soil of Greece, the buried remains of the work i. n . I i* !
