Letter From Frank Harris.
ORII.K
OKILE, Italy, April 1901.—Here
we, another young American and my
Belf, are up in an inn in the mountains
some forty miles froui Rome. We
left Rome this morning'at 5:30 to walk
to Hruceiano and we found that place
8) charming we decided lo continue
o'ir walk and go to Viterbo tomorrow.
Ana pretty well used up tonight but
imorrow at 5 again I'll tie ready tor
auother stroll.
We got a good early start this morn
fag and luck was with us. We had a
oudy sky and that made an ideal day
f-r walking. Nothing of interest hap
pened in the first ten miles the coun
try could hardly be called picturesque.
It was tbe dreariest part of Italy 1
have seen yet, and I find that I've
made a mistake in one of my earlier
letters. 1 spoke about every inch of
the ground being under cultivation
so it was on the other side of Rome,
but I tlnd that on this side there is an
endless amount that lies idle, and I
can't understand it because it all
seemed like fine land. Mile after mile
as we walked we passed no one and
that shows that there is not much
traffic on thesa roads. It was the way
when we first left Rome, that is for
the first fifteen or twenty miles, but
after that there seemed to be more
people.
We arrived at Bracciano at about 1
or 1:3D and it was certainly worth, not
a twenty mile, but a 100 or a 1,000 mile
trot, and I never have understood why
it was that Sir Walter Scott wouldn't
come to Rome. They couldn't get him
away from Bracciano nor do I blame
him. The city or rather village has
about 2,500 inhabitants and is situated
on the side of a big bill. At the very
top of the hill is the old castle, built in
the fifteenth century, and is now the
property of the Princess Odescalchi.
The Princess arrived unexpectedly to
day and they all told ua it would be
impossible to go through it, but we
went to the steward and gave him a
really sad "hard luck" and he gave us
a pass to go through. Well, it was in
teresting. The old bed rooms, with
out end, the libraries, the dining
rooms, tbe kitchen and all made a very
interesting sight. It is all furnished
with the old furnishings of the fif
teenth century and that alone made it
doubly interesting. One room, the
wedding chamber, fixed up in the old
style was something wonderful. The
drawings on the walls and the frescoes
on the ceiling would bring tears to the
eyes of the average bride and groom
They certainly were interesting to say
the least. 1 hardly think I'll go there
to spend my honeymoon. From the
top of the castle one sees one of the
grandest sights that eye can see. The
castle is just about 550 feet above a
beautiful lake that is about ten
mileB
wide and twenty miles long, and there
is a most beautiful mountain range
in the distance. O, it makes such a
wonderfully beautiful picture that one
just has to fight with themselves to
get away from it. On our way down
we bad the pleasure to meet tbe Prin
cess and her party and she seemed
quite charming. Gave us a really
friendly nod. After doing the castle
we went down to the lake and had a
little bath. It was pretty cold but
really enjoyed it, and it is such a re
lief to get away from the city. I hate
to think of going back.
After spending about an hour at the
lake we went back to the city, had
dinner, then decided to go farther, and
tonight we are in the finest little place
way up in the mouutain, but it is cer
tainly more interesting than it would
be in some big "Grand Hotel" in some
of the larger cities. This is the only
way to know the people and their cus
toms, and really they are good and
very friendly people, and it's the fact
we Americans have such a poor idea
of them. If you'll only treat an Ital
ian with any kind of respect you'll find
that be is one of tbe kindest of men.
Sitting around us are about twenty
five of tbe hardest looking fellows, hui
they all seem kind and willing to do
anything they can to make our short
stay pleasant. One old fellow just
came up and asked us if there was
anything that he could do for us. II
we wanted anything outside of the
Hotel. That's what he called it, yet
really I think he got the accent on
the wrong place. Another fellow over
here with uothing but a pair of cow
hide pants, with the cow outside, and
a coat and a necktie on, seems to think
that we are about the funniest things
he haB seen in years. Well, perhaps
we are but I'll bet we'll not come half
as near freezing if we were caught
outside.
It is cold up here and a most cheer
ing fire is cracking in a big open fire
place. It makes tbe most cheering
sound and the most cheering light im
aginable.
I am much more of a "curio" than
my friend. I've got a big flaBk of
water in front of me, and that's a little
too much for them. It took me ten
minutes to convince the girl that
waited on us I didn't want any wine.
She couldn't got it through her bead.
Tbe idea of a person eating without
drinking wine was a stranger tblng
than a man stealing a switch engine
would he to up.
Tomorrow we are going to Viterbo
or die in the attempt, so that means
we'll make it. But oh, I'll be good
and sore tor the lirst mile or so. This
friend of mine can do about the swift
est. mile

The Glenwood Opinion, this week,
commenced volume 34 of its publica

District, and we are glad to know that
it is getting better as it grows older.
In 1871 we worked on the Opinion at
the case. At that time Wm. Hale, J.
Y. stone and Rev. Stevens were doing
che editorial work, and Tom Ballard
was manager of the oilice. ID looking
over the the coluras of the Opinion to
day we find only a very few names in
the list of advertisers that were there
thirty years ago. Laraway, the jeweler
Ben Jones, tbe blacksmith, Heinshimer
the clothier, Mead Rogers, the barber,
are about the only familiar names we
find. Bob Hale was the principal gro
ceryman at that day,and old man Betts
was the only Landlord in Glenwood at
time. Guess we will have to visit
Glenwood some of these days and look
the old timers up.

MISSOURI ALLEY, IOWA, THURSDAY, APRIL 25, 1001
•CANINE CONSOMME GA
LORE.
Missouri Valley Visited by a
Largo Band of Indians.
Do» soup was at a premium in Mis
sonri VaUey tod-iy during the visit of
the large party of Indians who are en
route to Itult'alo, where they will par
ticipate in the Indian Congress to be
held connection with the Pan
American Exposition this summer.
The Indians were from the Rosebud
agency near Ilushville, Neb and re
cently received permission from the
United States Government to leave the
reservation for a curtain length of
time and are now being taken to Buf
falo by a private enterprise. In the
party were many famous Indian chiefs
who in the years past, caused the Gov
ernment any amount ot' trouble.
Among other chiefs of note in the
party were Little Wound who is now
8(5 years old, .Tack Red Cloud, Black
Heart and Rocky Bear.
The Sioux Indians in thepartv num
ber 171, the Winuehagoes 28 and repre
sentatives of 5 other nations complete
the list. The special train upon which
they will travel to Buffalo left Ilush
ville via the F., E. & M. V. yesterday
evening ut 5:50 and arrived in Mis
souri Valley about 11:30 this forenoon.
The train consisted of three stock cars
filled with the finest horses owned by
the more prosperous Indians of the
party, six coaches filled with Indians
and one car load of curiosities.
The management of the Miller hotel
here received previous notice of the
coming of the party and had din
ner already to serve upon their arrival
here. The paraphernalia of modem
man. such as knives, forks and spoons
were eschewed by nearly all the
aborigines, the fingers being used to a
decided advantage. Some idea of the
appetites enjoyed by the Indians may
be formed from the following facts
taken from the itemized list prepared
by Manager Pardee, of the Miller
hotel, the same being aside from the
victuals served the other patrons of
the establishment:
290 pounds of roast beef,
40 gallons ot coflee,
115 loaves of bread,
70 pounds of butter,
25 pounds of sugar,
10 gallons of tea,
25 gallons of milk,
5 bushels of boiled potatoes,
50 pounds baked beans.
Every member of the party was
dressed in the style peculiar to the In
dian every dusky face was painted in
some grotesque style, one proud old
Indian having his face painted a
bright green, a deep yellow encircling
one eye while a delicate shade of black
surrounded his other optic. lie at
tempted to outdo the rest of the party
by dressing in more up-to-date fash
ion. He had discarded the blanket,
and instead ho wore a white ''biled"
shirt. He wore the shirt in much the
same manner as a Chinaman, not one
Inch of the shirt being obscured irom
view. The merchants in the vicinity
of the depot reaped quite a harvest
during the few hours the party stayed
here. Every Indian in the crowd
seemed to have plenty of monoy which
they were not the least backward in
separating themselves from when they
saw anything that met their fancy.
The squaws bought red dress goods,
looking-glasses and perfume while the
bucks invested their money chiefly in
10 cent diamonds, tobacco and ''Uneeda
biscuits."
About. 1:45 the train pulled out for
Chicago.
'There is a great deal of truth in the
following words of a Sioux City busi
ness man in relation to encouraging
manufacturers:
"What the business men ought to do
now is to look carefully after the
small
concern that is trying to gain a foot
ing on a back street. Only three men
may be employed, but this may be the
beginning of large results when ade
quate capital is introduced. Capital
placed such companies will bring
favorable results. It is to those small
concerns that the cities need to turn
The concern that occupies a block to
day was small and struggling 20 years
ago, but it grew and so it will be with
many of the small manufacturing con
cerns ot this city. They will grow,
but they will grow faster if the busi
ness men who have money to invest
will look them up and give them a
start."
Doc Bixby evidently thinks there is
nothing too good to make fun of as
follows:
Now doth the mighty Commoner
Grow commoner every minute,
Because, outside of politics,
There's notadamthinginit.

THE OUTWITTING OF I
SOfiROWFUL JIM.
Allyn rode ucross the prairie joyous
ly and looked loiiKlntfly towurtl* tlje
oust, whore the sun was source an hour
high, 'l IJC fresh, brnoinn air seonied to
permeate every tiber of his beintf, and
he drew In great breaths of if. feelii
a wild sort of pleasure in the mere fact
of beinj alive.
for once in three years he was hap
py, and he luiii been in that lieatiiie
state for two whole days. Tfcfcrest of
the cowboys of the outlit did 7!flt know
what to make of It. Caynse Ike swore
he had been "locoed." for Allyn had
been nicknamed by the camp Sorrow
ful Jim, and to see him boyishly exu
berant and in a jiay humor was an un
heard of tiling until the last day or so.
Allyn had once made the mistake of
considering life a very serious matter
Indeed, and then, after trying for a
year to practice law and not getting
any one to practice upon lie had given
It up in disgust and migrated to the
home of opportunity In hope of getting
rich.
During his idle hours All.vn had fall
en in love, and lie took that very seri
ously also. It went hard with him, for
he had nothing on earth except a few
bonds an old aunt hail left him. and
the revenue from them did not amount
to .?3U0 year. At the rate his prac
tice was not increasing Methuselah
would have been a youngster compared
with Allyn if lie waited for the revenue
from ills profession to enable him to
marry.
"Jim," she said, "you are acting very
foolishly. What does it matter if you
haven't any money I don't want mon
ey. I've got enough, or will have when
I am :M, when I get control of it. That
would keep us very nicely and would
hold us up until you could establish a
paying practice. Now don't be silly."
"Nelly," lie said solemnly. "I cannot
afford to marry now. People would
Miy that I married you for you money,
and I don't intend to put myself In
a position where such a motive could
be Imputed to mo. It would be unjust
lo me and to you."
"Well, Jim," and there were tears in
her voice, "I don't think you are act
ing fairly toward me. llere I am an
orphan, with nobody on the earth to
love except an old guardian, and I
despise him. You've made me love you
so that life without you will he worse
than no life at ail, and now you say
you cannot, marry me until you muku
what it took my father a lifetime to
accumulate. Why, by that time I'll
have wrinkles ami maybe false teeth
and glasses and lie a horrid, snuffy
fussy old woman."
"No, Neil, I don't want to make .$1200,
000. If I had S 100,000 it would be all
right. And it will not take long. Out
west I will mala) it quickly. Just you
stand fast and wait for me."
"Oh, I'll wait, lull. I think you are
baleful and pigheaded Just the same.
Would you marry me If I hadn't any
money at nilV"
"Yes, gladly, and we would be happy
too. You would manage somehow. Hut
now my self respect will not allow
me."
So it was that he went to make his
fortune and ut the same time peace
with ills unduly active conscience. To
ills utter disgust he found, after a
year's prospecting, that gold mines
were not at all plentiful, and that
every foot, of tin mountains had been
prospected over time and again. A
year In Mexico assured him that, the
business of linillug silver mines lying
around loose had also played out long
ago, and that it took lots of capital to
Mart ranching on a paying basis.
Funds were getting low, so lie secured
a place as oue of the herdsmen of the
XXX outfit and on account of his
grave demeanor was promptly named
by the other cowpunchers Sorrowful
Jim. And the name stuck to him.
During all his wanderings he had
written to Nell as regularly as possible
and had begun to regret in a measure
his Puritanical conscience. At .$10 a
month and grub lie did not see that a
fortune was In immediate prospect.
Absence had Indeed made his heart
grow fonder, and lie longed for sight
of Nell's laughing eyes and dimpled
face.
Yet he would not acknowledge him
self beaten or that lie would give In.
Much against his inclination he re
mained consumed with a desire to see
her, yet impelled to remain in still
necked pride, acting as avant courier
and escort for a lot of wild eyed, long
horned steers, all the while cursing
himself for a fool. So lie and the rest
of the outfit did not have very much iu
common together, and lie grow more
and more unsociable and lonely.
Small wonder was It, then, that when
ho received a letter from her he felt
that his voluntary exile was broken.
Mis penance was done, and he was free
to return to civilization and Nelly.
"You come on, Jim, dear," the letter
said—"that is, of course, if you care to
take an almost dowerless bride.
a
as
t:\
I
have
now only enough left to bring me In
$300
year—exactly what you had. I
do not own another tiling on earth. I
had concluded that the money without
j'ou Is not worth having, and as long
you are so stubborn about it
that
I
I
must give in, so
saw
I
gladly.
I
have done so
have got to be 24, as you
know, and have absolute control over
my property. So, in order to get you, I
have given away my fov'une.
"Yon have cost me no:! ly $100,000, so
I'm of the opinion that you had better
come on and deliver yourself up as a
victim. I don't propose to tell you an
other thing about it, as you have no
rig'.it to know now. After—after—oh.
well, some time I will tell you what I
did with the rest, of the n.Viey, but jllst
now it is no aflair 11' yours. You will
simply have to take my word for It.
Come on, Jim. 1 am anxious to see
you."
So it was that Jim was so happy.
He had only two more days to wait
then he would get his month's wages,
lie bad $-100 saved up. and he reflected
that, he and Nolly would manage lo
get along nieelv on that for awhile.
His pride was riding rampant, also,
and his conscience was very self satis
tied, Indeed, for had he not held out
against the nlluremcnis of beauty,
wealth, position, ease—everything? It
was a victory well worth rejoicing
over.
The ceremony was over, the few lnti
niafe friends had taken their departure,
and Jim and Nell looked at each other
in a bewildered sort of way.
"I think we ought to take a trip, Jim.
I'm so deadly tired of this place. I
don't know what to do. Let's go to
Europe. I've always wanted to go
there."
"Nelly, are you daft? 1 en n't afford
a trip to Europe, and you know It.
And you haven't, any money either, so
how are ve to go7"
"I think it Is very unkind of a person
of your wealth to be taunting me with
my poverty. For a man as rich as
you, I think you are undoubtedly
'close.'" Iler eyes twinkled merrily.
"I want to go to Europe, and now.
I've got you to go with me you ought
to be glad of the opportunity."
"Nell, dear, if I could afford It you
know I would be delighted to take
you."
"Well, you can alTonl It."
"1 tell you I cannot."
"I know better—you can. Why, just
look at these," and she handed him a
bundle of books and papers. lie picked
up the first one and read the inside
page: "First National Bank, iu ac
count with .lames M. Allyn. Deposited
May 1, $:i5,000 May i), $12,000 May
11!, .$12,000.
"What does this mean, Neil?" he
asked wonderingiy as he looked at
another book and read: "Keeolved May.
0. bonds, mortgages, stocks and securi
ties duly transferred and assigned'lo
James M. Allyn, and aggregating $l,T0r
000, and more particularly described
as follows: The Trust and Safe De
posit company." Nell was hugely en
joying 1 he situation. She seated her
self on the arm of the chair and said:
"You dear old stupid, mulish, stub
born thing, I told you the truth, for I
gave everything I owed to you before
I wrote that letter. I told the truth,
for I reserved just enough to bring me
In $:i00 a year."
"Well, I'll be"— She kissed him and
stopped the word.
"Are you going to Europe?" she ask
ed.
"Yes. I think I would enjoy the trip
myself, but don't you think you paid
too much for meV"
"Oh, 1 don't know. Not as long as
on are nice as you are now. Come
on. l.et's get ready and catch the

in his little garden patch and would
root up ills flowers and vegetables.
Appeals lo the merchant, who was
a patron of the drayman, were of no
avail, so the following ruso was adopt
ed:
Our friend from tlie Emerald Isle
purchased SOUK eggs and placed them
lien.- and there in ills garden, lie then
awi'ited the merchant's wife, who
would call the chickens to feed them,
and in lull iew of the lady picked up
the eggs and put them In his hat.
Tin.' lady asked Mllcc what lie was
doing.
"Oh, getting a few eggs for my
breakfast," said he.
"Well," said the lady, "you have no
chickens. The eggs are mine."
"Oil, sure are they, mum. Then what
do they do In uiy garden? Anything
on my premises is my own."
After this the fence was made chick
en proof, and Mike had uo more trou

A Story of I) union.
One day Alexandre Dumas visited
Marseilles and made a trip to the Cha
teau d'lf to visit the palucc he hud
helped to make famous. The guide
showed him everything also the sub
terranean passage by which Udmond
ban tea and Abbe Karia used to visit
each other. "This passage was dug by
Abbe Faria by the aid of a tish bone,"
the guide explained. "M. Dumas tells
about it in his story of 'Moute-Cliris
to.'
"Indeed," replied the author. "Alex
andre Dumas must be familiar with
all tiie surroundings here. I'erhaps you
know him?"
"I should think so. lie is one of my
best friends."
"And you are one of his," replied the
impulsive scribe, letting 2 louis d'or
•lip into the hand of the astonished
guide.

Two "young" colored boys who
joined the Uaptist church at Cum
mingsville, O., went into the canal
for emersion, but lifter getting in
to th» water informed the minister
that thay had objections against
putting the head under the water.
Being unable to convince them
of their errors, the minister by
main force put them under the
water's surface.
To stimulate interest in debat
ing at Yale it is proposed that the
Union, the principal debating or
ganization, shall be divided into
two politioal parties, who will or
ganize as the United States senate.
It is further proposed that they
follow its method of procedure and
and discuss some of the bills re
cently befor congress* Thia plan
haB already been tried at Harvard
with succesi.
