Reminieenee of Their Great Indian Fight in a Mountain I‘ass,—lime Foe try soothed the Savage. It was nearly twenty years ago when Dan Da Quilleand Mark Twain attempted to start a paper in Mendo cino county. They took the type and material of their defunct newspaper establishment in San Francisco, and leading the stuff on a big wagon, struck out into the country to re trieve their fortunes. They pack ed their type just as it stood in the forms, tied up the articles with stout cords by a process well known to printers, and packing them closely in boxes vowed to establish a newspaper somewhere which would be the lead ing exponent of politics and history for the Pacific coast. Had not an un fortunate circumstance taken place, it is quite evident that the same news paper which they contemplated founding would have been alive to day. Their journey over the moun tains was utterly uneventful until they reached Simpson’s Station, a spot well known to old travelers on tliat route. Here they met a party of emigrants making for Lower Cali fornia, and the latter had with them a small mountain howitzer which they brought with them aoros the plains. Twain took a great fancy to this gun, and offered fifty dollars for it with two kegs of powder thrown in. The emigrants were glad enough to part with it, as they concluded the time for its use had passed. Dan thought the artillery and military supplies were a reckless piece of ex travagance, aud said as much but Twain replied : “When we start our paper we must fife a salute. A newspaper of fice with artillery has a big bulge on the business. No well-regulated of fice in Calilornia should be without a howitzer. If a man comes in for re traction we can blow him into the next country. The howitzer goes.” This silenced the argument, and the next day the two journalists took (ho road with their printing outfit and artillery. On the next night they camped in a mountain ravine fifteen miles from Simpsons, and after building the usual camp fell asleep. About 11 o’clock the horses awakened them by prancing about, and the two journal ists were led to the conclusion that nothing less than a party of Indians were making arrangements for a night attack. In the clear moonlight they could be distinguished about half a mile away at the foot of the ravine. The idea of encountering Indians had never entered the heads of the two fortune-seekers, and they had no arms. Suddenly Twain brightened up, re marking : "The howitzer I" “We’ve get nothing but powder," said Dan. “Well, powder’ll scare ’em, and we’ll load her up.” The piece was immediately loaded with a good big charge, and the two men felt quite certain that the In dians, heating the roar of the gun, would heat an unconditional retreat. The piece was hardly loaded and placed in position when about fifty of tho redskins came charging up the ravine. Twain seized a brand from the oamp-fue, and was about to lay it on tho touchhole, when dan yelled, | “Hold on I ’ as he rammed something into tho mouth of the piece, and re marked : “Turn'er loose." The roar of the howitzer echoed through the lonely forests, and the savages, with frantic cries of pain, reeled down the ravine in wild oon i fusion. What in h—l did you put in? asked Mark. “A column of solid nonpareil aud a couple of stick- of your spring poetry “The poetry did the business, Dan. Get one of your geological articles eady for th# noxt charga, and I guses t'll lot the rod devils out for th# . ~ • tk r J irooont campaign. The savagas again advanced, dark attended to the powder, and Dan sorted the ahot, to to epeatcr “Jaema Pidas’s song, 'Mr Mountain dome.' ’’ "Good for the Indian*; aock 'or n." "An acroatic by John R. Ride, in long primer." "It'll paralyze ’em." "Frank Pixly on the Oonatitution, iialf a column of leaded brevier." "It'll paralyze 'em." "Your leader on law and order.” "Save it aa a laat resort.” Dan pulled the typo out of the boz os, and stuffed column after eolutnb in the howitzer's mouth as th# sat ages came charging on. Another round from the gun and the redskin! rolled oyer and over each other like boulders swept away by a mountain cloud burst. Mark in an ecaltcy of delight palled an American flag oat of his effect* nailed it to the fail-board of the wagon, and was about to Mike a speech, when the dhaky figure# of the foe were once mor* seen moving to the attack. The piece was again loaded, and this time with a double charge. Mark's leader on "Law and Order,” th# puff of an auction house by Fred McOrel ish ("a* a sickener," Dan said.) Frank Goss's vents on "The Rebel Tall;” an agricnltural artiols by Sam'Sa baugb, showing the chemical’proper ties of corn-juice as ah educAtiOlUl lever, a maiden poetical effbrt of Olive Harper, and some verses by 001. Crsmenr and Frank Sobl#' com pleted the load. "That poetry reaching 'em first, Will throw them into confu(ion, and my editorial coming upon the heel* of the rest will result in a lasting de moralization. It will be fika the last cavalry charge of the FreAeh at the battle of Austerlitz." For the third and laat time the faithful howitzer belched its typo graphical compliments to the advan cing fo*.
