A HO0T GIIISE
L\ AN EX-ENU!NEE1..
A locomotive engineer and a civ
il engineer are two very different
persons. for one has charge of a
locomotive engine, and the other
has charge of, and-controls.1t varie
ty of instruments. First is the tran
sit, then the level, the levelling-rod
the flag, chains, axes and stakes,
all in charge of competect men.
An engineering party, to do good
work quickly. should consist of at
least ten persons.
The chief of the party usually
goes ahead and picks out the route
the others are to follow, and often
takes a flag-pole along with him
Sticking this into the ground, lie
waves his hand for the others to
"come ahead," and the transitman
sets his instrument in that direction
and causes the vertical cross hair in
the telescope to cut the pole, opti
cally, in two.
But I am afraid some readers
may not know what cross-hairs are.
Most of you know the principle of
s telesco'pe; an object-glass collects
a large number of rays of light and
~oncentrates them, and a lens, or
a series of lenses, magnifies them.
hat is the simple principle, andl inl
a transit, or level, just where the
>bject-glass forms the imnage antd

obwebs, so fine that the unaided

mgles withu each other, one per

ther is the exact center of the lens.
These are the cross-hairs, and

'hat was the very thing I was do
ing one day on the Northern Paci
fic Railroad (it was not that rail.
road, but it is a handy one to use
n this occasion).
The stream of water was two
iles away from thle new track, and
that morning we had ridden from
ur boarding place, ten miles east.on
: little hand-car. The grade there
was a descending one. westwardl,
for a long distance, and all we had
to do, wheii going in that direction
was to sit still and 1ly along over
the new rails.
About five miles further west a
large gang of men were working.

ngine on the '-constuction train"
was plainly visible across the uin
George and I, therefore. did not
feel lost or alone, and we worked
aard all the morning and ate our
unch in the cool shade of the tank
ouse, just finished. As we had
othing more to do that day, I deC
termind to put the truck on thle
track, after we were done eating,.
rie Anwil tn the track.layerk, and'
retur-~with thei on the flat car
But I was hung-ry and ate a great
deal, and thei,began to feel strange.
ly drowsy;-ne last thing I remem
ber before I fell asleep, was George
standing by the level in the hot sun
and looking through it at the hills
east of us.
I cannot say how long I dozed.
for I was startled so suddenly as to
"jog" my memory to an alarming
"Indians !' I hear so nie one cry;
and I began to rub my eyes sleepi
But I did not rub tbein long, for
I saw George throwig the truek on
the track, in a state of the great ex
citement. I was at his side in an
instant, and a quick glance around
showed me the true state of things.
Eastward, about a mile distant.
were five mounted Indians, riding to
wards us at full speed. As the
camp had several times been raid
ed during the men's absence. I had
no doubt that they were hostile. I
was not excited as George was,
however, for I put my level and
levelling-;od and two spruce ties on
the car before I shoved off.
The rails were new snd rough,
and the hand-car was not worn
much yet, but as I jonped on. I
felt it gaining speed down the
straight track, and I arranged the
two ties in the form of a barricade.
Then I looked back.
The five Indians evidently meant
bussiness, for they were coming as
fast as they could toward us, and
were gaining upon us; and when I
heard George moaning as lie crouch
ed behind the ties, I did not feel
very cheerful or hopeful. I reached
for my revolver in my hip-pocket,
and examined its charges as coolly
as I could. There were seven large
sized cartridges in it, and the zip
of a bullet by my ears at that mo
nent showed me that I might have
to use them. I also crouched be
hind the ties after this warn&g,
i_ looking- rauiTously over the
top at our pursures.
They gained nearly half the (is
tance during the first five minutes,
but the increasing quickness of the
click of the wheels at the joints of
the rails gave imc a little
hope as I watched them. As
to George. he was so terrified as to
be unconscious; but a long life of
engineering upon the plains had
hardened mc a little; neither was
this my first adventure.
The sun poured down on us, and
but for our motion, it would have
prostrated us; the wind was blowing
the same way that we were going,
but we were noving faster than it,
and this gave us a faint breath of
air. I took o:' my light coat and
formed a sha-e over George. who
was helpless, and looked ahead.
Far away. thrcugl the moving
waves of heat, I could see the
smoke rising lazily from the engine,
and the two rails stretchinr in a
long perspective, untill they were
lost where the grass seemed (iyed
brown; but the s: ady click a click
click of the wh< 's reminded me
that it was a long way off, and I
fastened my eves on the Indians.
They were spreading out. One
of them, on my right, had left the
main body behind, and was circling
around to get a head of us. Then
I thought how lucky it was there
were no curv(s to give themi an ad
When I ha 1 first sighted them
they were making a great many ex
travagadt mot ions; b)ut now they
were readly for action, and I could
see the foam on the dark beasts of
their ponies as they leaned well
for ward. But in prop)ortion as their
steeds tired, caur steed gathered new'
energies, and the two thousand
feet that sep)arated us did not ap
pear to lessen very rapidly. Wheth
er they wanted to adorn their belts
with our scalps, or wanted to hold
us for a ransom, was another ques
tion, for they had fired but once,
and doubtless as a "long tom," fired
on a ship, retards. in a slight degre

us. would check them. They did
not fire, anywhere. but their reasons
for doing so can only be guessed
So far I could judge, only one of
them was gaining oni us, adI
graspedi the handle of mys revolver
as I saw that lhe was lessening the
distance between us. He was cov
ered behind his horse, excepting
his right leg and foot, but I did not
see fit to waste a shot yet; there
was no knowing what might happen
I thought. Besides, my revolver
would not carry accurately that dis
tance, and every ball might he re
I ventured to look ahead a mo
ment. and saw that the smoke was
nearer and that the outlines of the
engine and a few cars were distinct
against the blue sky beyond; and
then another thought flashed across
my mind. We were going downi a
gade of thirty-five feet to tihe mile,
hardly fall enough. I reasoned, to
move the stiff truck along ov-er the
scaly surface of t he rails.
I could even see the change of
grade. nearly a mile ahead, and I
hoped (and <~mly- a mind in danger
knows how to hope&; that the sun
would beat down moure unmercifully
and noencme those tough po.
I was helpless; the truck was
runing as fast as the laws of gravi
tation and friction would let it,
and I did not doubt but that the
Indians were urging their ponies to
the utmost. Any word or action,
of mine, however, would not in
crease our speed, and as near as I
could judge, we were going at the
rate of fifteen miles an hour.
This may seem extravagant, but
I think it is not so. I am sure the
truck did its best. Perhaps the In
diais saw that they were not gain
ing much, for I heard another bul
let whiz over our barricade, and
cautiously lowered my head. The
report was lost to my ears, full of
the click. a-click-click.
Then I determind to shoot. The
nearest pony was but little over a
thousand feet away. and the change
of grade was not much more than
that ahead. I took a careful aim,
holding the sights so they centered
two feet above the pony's head, and
I heard them yell at this aggres
sion, but the bullet, instead of hit
ting the forward pony, carried
strong, I think, over its head, and
struck one of the rear riders. One
of them -fell back' anyway, and I
deliberately cocked the revolver
This time I did not aim so high.
I could feel my heart beating rapid
ly when I thought how much might
depend on my accuracy. The ten
foot grade was not far away, I
knew, and I fired. I heard a sav
age yell, but my shot did not take
effect except as it roused their an
ger, and I heard several bullets
slug, slug, into the spruce ties.
The truck still keeps up its speed,
and a hasty look over my shoulder
-I was lying flat, behind the ties
enabled me to judge how far away
from safety we were. We had cov
ered about half thedlist-[eL,e i I

The Indians evidently saw that
we were nearing the construction
train too, for they lashed their
I determined upon another shot.
The nearest Indian had gained a
little in the last few minutes. I
aimed at the pony's foretop and
fired. That shot determined the
day. I saw the pony stumble a
few steps, and fall, throwing his
rider over his head. The remaining
three, with a savage yell, fired a
parting volley, and drew rein.
And just at that moment the truck
struck the ten foot gade.
I felt its pace slacken instantly,
but, luckily, the Indians did not
know one gade from another, and
in a few minutes more they were a
mile away, co' :oling their brother
who would , to walk to their
Seeing that I was safe, I took a
look at George. He was not total
ly unconscious, but looked at me
with an expression of terror. It
took me some time to assure him
of his safty, but I finally did, and
we joined the track-layers with
thankful hearts. The engineer,
when he heard my story, uncoupled
the engine from the train and gave
chase; the Indians were too wise,
however, to follow the track, and
we saw them disappearing far to
the south.- Youth's Companion.
TIHIETOMIB OF NA POLEON.
"Standing on the summit of Di
ana's Peak the Island of St. Hele
na looks like a great mat spread
out upon the ocean, with an orchre
and umber border and a little green
patch in the center." The speaker
was Mr. J. A. McKnight, the Unit
ed States Consul to St. Helena,
who is now in Washington on leave
"Is the land fertile?' inquired the
"In some places it is, but even
these are not cultivated. The peo
plo are indolent, and can live on
fish and rice all the year. The
whites on the island are English
and the rest of the population, in
cluding Malays, Chinese, negroes
and East Indian coolies. The is
land is plainly of volcanic origin,
and every indication goes to show
that one half of the extinct volcano
is sunk on the ocean.''
"Of course. Napoleon's tomb is
the main feature of the island?"
"Yes, but it has comparatively
few visitors. The~ English Steam
ers only stop at the island about two
hours. and the tomb is two hours'
ridle distant, so that pasengers who
might wish to see the tomb canno
leave the vessel. Two or three
times a year there is a sort of pil
grimage to the tomb. This is
when the French transports, return
ing from New Caledonia to France,
stop at the island. They are old
style ships known as three deckers,
and carrying from 800 to 1,003 peo
ple. Their passengers include
prisoner's of war, returned convicts,
officers, etc., but all go to Napol

The Briars is a prettier and
rather picturesque place in another
part of the island, where Napoleon

"Is the flag of the United States
ever seen in this part of the world?"
"Oh, yes, more so than you would

of our vessels plying regularly be

A BOTTLE 248 YEARS OLD.
Washington Mo., Observer.
Mr. L. Green, of Newport, called l
at this office last Saturday morning I
and exhibited to us a four ounce
bottle, the existence of which is
clearly traced back 248 years. It i
can not properly be called a square
or round bottle, as the corners and
edges hardly approach either. Ev
idently the process of blowing glass
at the time it was made was in its
incipiency. The bottom was doubt
less intended to be flat, but the
corners and edges are not squarely
and smoothly turned, and in the
centre of the bottle a daub of mol
ten glass seems to have been cut on
to stop up the hole that was left by
reason of the edges failit h.t m - a d l 4
together and lo0o-4ft 'e bottom.
The shoiiiers at the top of the bot
tie, too, looked as if they were in
tended to be blown square, but in
stead of this they awkwardly dou
bled in toward the center. The
neck of the bottle is short and
straight, without the usual rim at
the top, and at the bottom of the
neck it spreads out and is apparent
ly molded ino the hole left at the
top of the bottle where the glass
laps over from the shoulders. Up
and down the body of the bottle in
a sort of twisting shape are large
but pretty uniform ridges which ap
pear to be on the outside, but upon
feeling the bottle they are discov
ered to be but slightly indented on
the outside or running through the
interior of the body of the glass.
This bottle was brought from
Germany in 1636 by John Baker
(the German name would probably t
be spelled Becker), who settled in
Phildelphia. When he died the
bottle fell into the hands of his son
Fred Baker. then into the hands of
Fred's son, Karl, and then into the
hands of Karl's daughter, Rachel.I
who married Win. Ramey and set
tied in St. Louis county in 1880.
Win. Ramey was an uncle of Mr.
L. Green who secured the bottle,
from his uncle's wife. Mr. Green
has lived in this country for twenty
five years, and still holds out to
certify to what we have here written
and shows us the "documents."
A BOUJT TIGIT PANTS.
Carl Pretzel's Weekly.
We have a large stock of advice
for young men constantly on tap,
and we now warn them against
wearing tight pants. Tight pants
of course, are properly managed
but the least carelessness in hand
ling them is apt to bring ruin and
desolation where joy and peace
should reign. They arne apt to
create and breach between the best
of friends, particularly if the coat
is not long enough to cover the
breach. And that reminds us of
Dobyn. He had a habit (it cost
him $50) of wearing a short pair
of pants so tight he could scarcely
breathe. Last Sunday he went
out to see his besL girl and took a
stroll. After walking about for
some time they found a shady spot
and concluded to take a iest. It
was all that Dobyn could do to sit
down, but he finally settled down
on the grass, and as ho did so a
sound smote upon his ear tbat made
him turn pale and tremble with
fear. He looked cick and his eyes
had a far away stare in them that
told of a soul's misery. He won
dered if the fair creature at his
ide had heard the noise, and cast
a sidelong glance at her. She evi
dently had, for her face was flush
ed and such a look of reproach was
in her eyes that he shuddered and
wanted to say it wasn't him, but
he knew she wouldn't believe it,
and just then he sneezed with a
jerk that nearly took his head off
and that terrible noise was repeated.
The girl got up and started toward
home, and poor Dobyn sat there
the picture of untold agony, until
she was out of sight. Then he got,
up and examined the extent of the
catastrophe. The breach must have
been very serious, as he did not
reach home until after dark.
The world owes us ali a living,
but like many people in it, it is
very slow pay.

in her~ establishment. They are not
allowed to eat meat, but are treated
frequently to oyster soup, poached
eggs, batter cakes, oatmeal, etc.
Their meals are prepared with as
much care as to cleanliness and
form as though they were human
beings, and the food is served as
nicely as for invited guests. Ten
gallons of milk and twenty pounds
of oatmeal are fed to the dogs
daily, to say nothing of the great
quantities of oysters and eggs.
When the dogs are sick they re
ceive the most considerate attention
and at no time are they subjected to
scolding or punishement of any
kind. The result of this experi
ment has been watched by many
with the greatest interest and there
are some developments that would
