It -nas the Saturday afteruoon l)erore Christinas dav, nearly two years ago, when my six brothers, all younger than myself, and I were skatutK on our 'sqnire"s fish-pond.- We had been slott ing since dinner, and it was not till tlx that the recollection rushed across me that I had entirely forgotten to do a commission my mother had given me in the morning, to walk to the Grange, a big farm house, and bespeak some geese for dinner ou New Year s day. "Who'll go with me to the Grange 7" I called out, quickly. "Tell the truth, Cis," called out Charley, a quick, good-natured boy of fifteen, "and say you're afraid of Jip. Never mind, I'll come with you, if you must go." Thauks to my brother, I was a pretty good runner, aud we sped across the 'squire's fields, and through the narrow lane toward the Grange as fast as possi ble AVhen we got to tlie last field, which joiued the farm-yard, we slackened pace a little, and when we got into the big courtevard itself we were walking almost Blowly. Jip did not greet us witu Ins usual noisy welcome, and there was no sound of any sort about the place except the gabbling of some tuxkevs in the rear of tbe farm buildings. We went np and knocked' at the door, aud when I turned round I observed that Jip's . kennel, which stood exactly opposite, in a line with the front of the house, was empty. Suddenly some marks of blood on the flagged pathway in front of the kennel arrested my attention. "Wnat can it be, Lnarlier' I said in a whisper. "I don't know," Charlie returned, thoughtfully, "poor Jip come to grief, perhaps. It's odd Mrs. Johnson doesn't come ; I think I'll go on a voyage of discovery ; stay here till I come back and he pushed the door further open. ""o, let me go too," 1 said hastily, half frightened. "I am a coward nt the sight of blood." "Well, don't make a row then," and we entered together. There was a big blazing fire in the grate, which showed that on the table the tea-things were set for tea ; the kettle was hissing away merrily, ani some tea-cakes stood to keep warm on u low stand before the fire. Everything looked snug and cozy. I shall never forget the horror of the next moment. Huddled upy evidently it the attitnde in which,she had fallen, lay Mrs. Johnson, with a gaping wound across her throat, from which the blood was still trickling, and Jip, with a large pool of blood near his head, lay dead beside her. I stood for a moment, too paralyzed with horror such intense, thrilling hor ror, that only any one who has expe rienced such a feeling can understand it and then, with a low 6cream, I sank on the floor, and put up my hand to try and hide the horrible sight. "Hush !" whispered Charlie, sternly taking hold of my hands, and forcibly diagging me on. to my feet again ; "you musn't make a sound. Whoever Las done this can't be far off; you- must run home, Cissy, as hard as ever you can. Come!" I tried, but it was no use ; my legs positively would not move, and precious time was being wasted. "You fool!'' Charlie said bitterly and passionately. "Then I must leave yon. It's Johnson's money they no doubt want, and Johnson will be back directly." "Yes, yes. Go," I said, understanding that he wanted to fetch help before the farmer came. "I.will hide somewhere." "In the kennel there," he said, quickly ; "and don't stir." He pushed me into 'poor murdered Jin's kennel, and then he disappeared. I combated the faint feeling which Charlie could not understand by pinch ing my 'arms and sticking pins into them, and after a little judicious torture of this sort, the sick feeling went off, and I could think again. "I will take off my boots," I thought, after a mo ment." "They make such a noise, and I may have to move." I had hardly done this when I heard the sound of voices. and the sick, trembling feeling came on so Btrongly that the pin torture had to be again applied. In another minute three men came out of the back door, and I could distinctly hear every word of their conversation. "He's late, I think," said one, "He ought to be coming by now," said another. "Well, let's do something now," the third said, anxiously, "or we shall be having socio one fcv" of m in be on all be as to or The three men then went back to the house arain. and I could hear them Riwakine in low tones. In another minute thev came out again. They walked away along the line or the house towaru ine omer emrauw u which Mr. Johnson would come; and J thev had cone to take up thei hidine-ulaces. put my head cautiously Anf of the month of the kennel and looked round. Surely, I thought, if I could but reach the bigdrawing room, which commanded a. view of the fields the farmer would cross, I might be able to warn him back from the fate which n waited him. 1 must warn him if I could. It was too horrible that another murder should be done. I was out of the kennel and in the kitchen. I shuddered as I passed the table and drew near to the horrible scene; but, to my utter surprise and no little terror, Mrs. Johnson had vanished ! the dark gleaming pool of blood and the dead doe were still there, but the hud- Uer1.nnTimdIe of rlothes were "one. What had thev done with it? In snite of the urzeiit necessity there wa for immediate action, I stood motionless for a minute, hesitating to cro. the dimlv-liuhted hall. Suppose it should lw i liert. Wl.ile T stood hesitating, a shadow Massed across the first window, and look- ins? unouicklv. to mv horror, I saw three men in another moment pass the second window. I had no time for thought. Iii another minute thev would be in the kitchen. I turned and fled down the passages and across the hall, rushing into the first open door, which happened to be the drawing-room door, and instinctively half closed it behind me as I had found it. Then I glanced wildly round the bare, empty room in search ot shelter. There was not a particle of furniture in the room, and it was quite empty ex- cent for some annles on the floor and few empty hampers and sacks nt the further end. How could I hide? I heard the footsteps crossing the hall, and then, as they tyime nearer, wiin the feeling of desperation I sjied noiselessly across the room, laid down flat behind the hampers, and, as the door opened, threw an empty sack over me. The men walked to the window saying. "We Khali see better here." and looked out all exclaiming together, "He's coming now, and, without glancing m my u rection. thev hurriedly left the room I was safe, but what could I do to save the farmer? Surely Charley must be coming with help now, but would he be in time? I must try and save him, was the conviction that impressed use It upon me in a- liehtniuz thought, and as it crossed my brain I Bprang to the win dow. All thought of self vanished then with the urgency of what I had to do. was only cairer nervously, lrantically eager to save the farmer's life. twelve feet below me. stretching down the slope or the mil, was the gar den now lying in long plowed ridges, with the lrozen snow on the top oleach of them, and at the bottom of the garden was a stone wall four feet high. Be yond this, as far as the eye could reach, extended the snow-covered helds, and coming along the cart road to the left was Mr, Johnson in his eie. I threw open the window making noise enough to alarm the men if they heard it, aud sprang on to the window ledsje, and then tearing off my jacket threw it on the ground, and, shutting my eyes, jumped aown. Ihe high jump hurt "my wrists and . uncovered feet dreadfully, but 1 dare not stop a mo ment. 1 "rushed down the garden, tumb ling two or three times in my progress, and, when I came to the wan, scrambled over it headforemost. The farmer was just opening the gate of the field I was in, ami I made a straight line toward him. I flew across the snow, dashed through the brook, and when I rushed np to Mr. Johnson's side, I could only throw up my arms and shriek out, "mur der!" I quickly told him of th danger, and as 1 did so, l heard the tramp ot many feet, and turning I beheld Charley with several neighbors fully armed. They at once surrounded the premises, and succeeded in capturing all three of the murderers. And poor Mrs. Johnson. She was dead. The men had put her nnder the dresser, which exDlains whv I did not see her as I passed through the kitchen. The poor husband went away directly afterward. The whole house is unin habited now. Nobody will live there because it is said to be haunted. The three men were hung. Of Women. The jealousies of friendship are in this more exhaustions than those of love ; there are only phantoms to fight, and tbe price of peace is merely a chimera. A woman w ho takes a woman to her triend, introduces her into her life as they do the bearer of a flag of truce into the enemy's camp unarmed and blind lolded. A woman's fall is something like that a child. The first intimation the hild has that it has tumbled is conveyed the fact that it is being picked up. friendship is a picnic to which all parties contribute, and therefore issonte thing women cannot understand. Wiih them one parly or the other must stand treat. Some conjugal fidelities can be ex plained on the hypothesis that many a woman is satisfied to be nothing in a husband's heart so that she is everything his life. Prudery is often the mantle chosen to conceal triumphant vice. Where in ward remorse prevails, there will always a corresponding absurdity in me affectation of a genuine virtue. At twenty a woman searches lor trail ing arbutus ; at twenty-five she is after horse-radish ; at thirty she digs roots for her blood. Such is gentle spring iu the various stages of the feminine life. Women who would hesitate about cry ing before a husband or a lover, have no scruple about shedding tears before an audience. It is with their emotions as with their shoulders they are displayed only in public Parts in the Morning. It is an interesting sight to take a seat the top of a street car at an early hour in the morning and witness the cleaning process that every thing is un pergoing. The housekeepers bring out their rubbish and pile it up iu the street, one pile for every lour or five houses. It is no sooner emptied than the rag-pickers, who swarm the streets with their bags and buckets and hand carts, pounce upon it and gather up all the fragments of paper, rags, or metal to found in the piles. They are bo nu merous that there is a scramble on every street, and they move from pile to pile if their lives depended on their ac tivity. Thev seem to take away one third of the rubbish. Servants are everywhere to be seen with broom aud bucket in hand cleaning off the fronts. The streets are being sprinkled with hose, and an army of men and women with birch brooms are sweeping the streets. On the boulevards horse brush ing machines are in motion, and the garbage carts are removing the piles thrown ont hy the housekeepers, vt ater turned on m all the gutters, and women with brooms are engaged wash ing thera down. Men with hose are watering all the roots of all the hun dreds of thousands of trees on the boule vards, and taking up the gratings so as ne gratings so as and them. All. loosen the earth arou nearly all, this work is being done bv j city authorities, and by nine o'clock I city is as clean as broom and brush and -water carriaake it. Teachers' Column. DAVID BAILEY, EDITOR. Communications for this department are solic ited Iran tbe teacher, of tho countv. All com muiiR'Miona should b addresxed to David Bai lev, Hiuhland P. (.. Hieai.AKU Co., O., and should reach blm at lenst trndaytt before the issne of the paper iu w hlch they are elected to appear. County Supervision. We think that enough has been said in favor of this movement, for the present, at lenst ''A. D. Hector" asks some questions, but we think they have been answered already in this column. It should be remem bered that the proposed cbange in the TowDBhip system has nothing to do with Superintendency. "A. D. Rector" says that the present Town ship system costs this county but $282 annually, and we say it ig hard ly worth that. It certainly is not bnsiness-Hke to expect a man to do anything for nothing. Besides, a great majority of the officers, under the present system, are although un qualified for this positioD; indeed, we are satisfied that there are dis tricts in this county within the lim its of which there cannot be found two men fit for the position. But by having a Township board of, say, six inembers,we think men could be found whose services would merit a salary. Let "A. D. Rector" nd others, think of these things. What is the Matter With Our Graded Schools? Dr. Andrews, of Marietta, has written on the waste of time in our common schools, (see O. Ed. Month ly for Feb.) and we thought to give a few facts. Jjongfeliow graduated at Bowdoin at eighteen ; O. W. Holmes at Harvard, at twenty, J. Russell Lowell at the! same college, at nineteen, and hisiolder brother, Robert T. S. Lowell, from the same, at seventeen. So we might go on and give a long list of distinguished men who received their degrees be fore they were twenty years of age. For this reason we never recom mended our Union Schools to out siders. It is a waste cf time and money to attend them, when we have so many colleges where the student has something to do, and does it. Some people have strange ideas of thoroughness. They seem to con sider the mind a kind of an intellect ual stomach, which ronnot digest its food unless thoroughly ground. They thus make an unpalatable pow der of food, whicn tsken in a more crude state, would act as a relish, and sharpen the mental appetite. That Letter. We know there are a few, we we hope there are tiuiny, who can understand that a man may advo cate a principle without being per sonally interested, and who belitve that there ace still a few men who will advocate the right for its own sake. But the best of men often make mistakes, and we never laid any claims to infallibility; so, if, in our letter to the Probate Judge, you think we were advocating the wrong, we ask you to consider us honest and under charity, or commiseration, if need be, but we feel that wa do not deserve your censure. Query Box. Will some one please give the correct statement of the the follow ing problem, copied verb dim from the printed report of tbe last High hind Co. Teachers' Examination ?

ALIUS April 11, 1879. If you are not sine of getting a certificate, you should attend the Hillsboro Schools. There are now fifty or more teachers in atten dance, but there is always "room for one more. More about County Supervision. I have been waiting for Bome one to speak out in favor of a County Superintendent of schools, but no one appears but the worthy Editor. Now, I want to ask a few questions. It is said by you, Mr. Editor, and other champions of the cause, thnt it will be economical, when it will require 88 Superintendents, at per haps an average of 5I0UU per an num. Now, in our county we hive 141 sub-districts ; cost for taking enumeration $282, which is all the pay local boards get. Your Com mittee recommends a reduction to 6,000 or 7,000, and as that would not give one to each sub district, of course you must pa them to spmd their time in looking after the schools. Is that the idea .' Again : Another argument is, that so many of the teachers use the pro fession merely as a stepping-stone to some other profession, thnt the efficiency of the schools is impaired. How will yonr Superintendent reme dy that ? By centralizing the pow . , . , " ... er in a few paid officers, who will 1 form a "ring" to force np waes so j . , ... . 0 , 1 as to make 11 to the interest .of I teachers to remain in the profession. ' Something similar to the "ring" the old teachers attending the Institute tried to form, that they would not teach for less than ?40 per month They had the good of thu schools at heart, and wanted to elevate them, but they wanted to rill their pockets more. Is not that the design of moBt of the advocates of County I SuPervision ? Now, a great complaint is made against the Examiners. Some of it may be true I know not ; but how will County Supervision help the matter ? According to Mr. Worley's bill, the Probate Judge appoints two, and the Superintendent is one. Now, in that case will you get a "fair count ?'' Will the dog wag the tail, or the tail wag the dog ? Why not have all the Examiners appointed in the same manner as the Superin tendent would be, and thereby take the appointments out of politics, as it was attempted to drag them into politics in the last campaign I think the correspondent from Concord reflects the sentiments of the mass of voters on this questioD, and not much of an attempt made to refute or answer the points made. A. D. RECTOR. "Oakland," April, 1879. A Snake's Feat. Speaking of snakes. Superintendent Brown, of the Zoological Garden, Phila delphia, said that he could tell a snake story and not a second-handed one, eitner. About a year ago one of the large reptiles 111 the collection took sick and seemed to be going into a decline. Nothing that they could give him ap peared 10 do him good, and irom loss of appetite and sleeplessness the snake be came a mere wreck of its former self. A large blanket had been placed in the serpent 8 cell lor him to sleep unon One morning the keeper found that the blanket had disappeared. Search was made throughout the cage, but without success. At the same time Jhe snake's hotly had swelled to the thickness of a good sized-sapling. He had swallowed the blanket; but the blanket would not digest, and the snake became sicker than before. In this manner lie lolled around like a wan dyspeptic for over four weeks. Finally tfie blanket was discharged bv natural causes. Imme diately the snake began to improve. The swelling in the body gradually dwindled down, and he grew larger and fatter than before, till the box became too Email to hold him. The keerers then removed him to a larger cage. He ate like a gourmand, aud at times found room for two and three times the cus tomary quantity of food. The blanket acted as a kind of medicine upon his stomach, and cleaned him out entirely. V- 1 : - cn 1- , 1 . , . 1 iiu ue is iiueen leei long, eignt mcnes in circumference and the healthiest boa constrictor in the lot. A change of color was the only visible effect on the blanket. Under the microscope it showed that it had become a little worn by being rubbed in the . animal's stomach. It came out undigested, and was carefully packed away in the Superintendent's private othce. Some German Habits. In the town, says a German letter, we noticed numberless peasants attired in funny costumes. Many wore scarfs twisted in turban-like fashion, around their heads, and long calico double man tles or capes, gathered in full around the neck and hanging loose from the shoul ders ; the under one extended nearly to the bottom of the dress, while the up per one, ornamented with a wide ruffle of the same material, was a foot or so shorter. Some of these under-capes are arranged in a sort of hag in front, in which it is convenient for a mother to carry her child. I might here add that the style of dressing German babies might not he heartily approved by every American mother. Until the child is three or four months old it is carried around in swaddling clothes. It is only allowed to have the free use of its hands and arms, its lower limbs and waist be ing wrapped around by what is styled a "wickle band." If the baby was con sulted in regard to this mode of dress it might inform us that it did very well for winter, but that it was a little warm fur summer, and also that it would really tike to exercise its lower limbs freely. I counted thirty-six market women just coming into town : all wore short dresses and carried long, willow baskets strapped on their backs; many were bareheaded, a few wearing long Btraw bonnets w ith only a mere shadow of a cape. The Use of Tobacco. It is lather singular that American are the only civilized people who habit ually chew tobacco, although sailors of nearly every nation are addicted to its mastication. It is singular, too, that we, frobably, employ tobacco other wins ess than other countries. Snuffing is rather rare here, common as it is in Europe, especially on the continent. Wo do not smoke any more, if as much as, the English; and the French, Ital ians, notably tho Germans, Dutch and Spaniards exceed 113 iu smoking. But as tobacco-eaters we occupy the field alone, having, it is to be regretted, a monopoly of one of the most'unwhole some ami obnoxious of practices. The national masti'-ntion and expectoration are known over the world, and do am ple service in all conceptions and carica tures of Brother Jonathan. To see a landsman chewing tobacco anywhere abroad is to know him for an American, native or adopted Perhaps we stick to the worst of the three customs because tobacco is to so large an extent an American plant. Europe knew nothing of it until the discovery by Columbus of the Western world. The sailors he 6ent ashore at Cuba found the natives smok ing, and, seeing them emit smoke from their nostrils, imagined them to be on fire. All the natives from the northwest coast of Fatttgonia used tobacco, and to chew it is one of our inalienable and aboriginal rights. The Sun Made of Metal. In a recent article in the Sinrttvitth Century, by Mr. J. Norman Lockyer, the writer very strongly objects to J)r. Dra per's discovery of oxygen in the sun. Mr. Lockyer says he has gone carefully over the whtuV ground and finds: First, that the photograph on which Dr. Dra per bases the discovery is not jne com petent to settle such au important ques tion ; second, that he does not find the coincidence between bright solar lines and oxygen lines in the part of the spectrum with which he is most familiar; and, third, that comparing Dr. Draper's photograph with the fine photograph of the spectrum obtained by Mr. Ruther ford, he "fails to find any true bright line in the sun whatever coincident with any line of oxvgen whatever." Mr. T.n l.-vpr sums no'the evidence as to the mmi's i-nintioition m these words: r?o ' " fa ' 1 . tt.a knowledge goes, the sun is chietlv made of metal, and on this account is 'strangely diflerent from ;! of mlr t.arti,, in which the tt&la sro in iarja minority.

Bond, Supervisor of State Printing, for his annual report for tbe year end ing io v. io, lais. it snows mat the total amount expended for print ing during tbe year was S32,S80 51, and for binding, S22.2G2.42 total 853,142.96, to wbich must be added tbe cost of paper, $40,7G8.7G, mak ing tbe total cost of public printing, $95,911.72. This does not include tbe 3d volume of the Geological lie- port, which cost 27,381.53. Vol. 4 of the Geological Report, on Zoolo gy and Botany, is now in press. The Geological Atla8 of Ohio, now in course of publication, under a con tract with Julius Bien, of New York, will cost 10,895 40 for 5000 copies. All the binding for the State is now done at the State bindery, in tbe Deaf and Dumb Asylum, a large proportion of the work being done by deaf mutes. A small weekly pa per, called the '"Mutes' Chronicle," is also printed iu the Asylum, the work on wbich is mostly done by the pupils. Tbe total expenses of the printing department for the year were 2,149.95, of which 1200 was for salary of superintendent. The present system of executing the State printing and binding shows a large saving over the former sys tern of appointing a State printer, which prevailed under the old Con stitution. The printing and paper contracts are notv let to the lowest bidder, and the binding is done in the State bindery, as already eta ted. Sir. Bond recommends that the issuing of nil piper for State work be hereafter placed under the con trol of tbe Supervisor; also that the duties of proof reading-, preparing side notes find making tin index of the laws, be transferred to tl o Sec retary of State. Mr. Bond ha held the hAVm of Supervisor the past two years, and has perf rmed its duties faithfully. His successor, Mr. Elliott, who has jnst been appoint' 1 by Gov. Bishop. will do well if bo is able to show sis clean a record nt the c!os of his official term. [Correspondence of the News. Our Washington Letter. WASHINGTON, D. C., April 4, 1879. The speech of Mr. Robeson, of N. J., yesterday, was one of tbe most notable of the present debate. It was characteristic in its novelty, ft r the speaker took a view of tbe con troversy that nobody appeared to have thought of before. It is not military domination, he said, that the Demo crats are grasping for, but civil pow er: it is not the military aim that they are afraid of, bat the civil authority of the Government, bucked by the right to call in the aid of the troops to enforce civil laws, the same as nil citizens are b ible to be oiled upon to form a pos."e comitotus for the en forcement of tho laws by n civil officer. The army cannot now be used to oppress the citizen As an army, it cannot act at all. in'tr piuces j ,, of elections or anywhere else, bnt the Democrats object to it3 use as ! ! an aid to the civil power, because it is potent to enforce the laws which they do not want enforced. This view of the case rather astonished some of the Northern Democrats, who want it to appear that the object of tbe Republicans is to preserve mili tary despotism, as they call it, and that of the Democrats to restore civil authority. There can be no mistake nbout it : what tbe Democrats fear is civil au thority, and the bugaboo of tbe "troops at the polls" is a mere pre tense. Following the able speeches of Garfield, Frye and Belford, this speech of Robeson will have a grand effect. All these speeches should be read by every man in the land, and it is probable that the Republican Congressional Committee will take measures to 6end them broad-cast. They ought to be sent in connection with the fire eating harangues of Chalmers, Blackburn, and other ram pant rebels, who have done even more for the exposure of their own nefarious designs than tbe Republi cans conld do. In fact, all the Confederate Briga diers in the Senate and House an nounce grandiloquently that they have come to tale their men the power which was wrenched from them in 1861. They remind us forc ibly of the ante-war days, when loyal men were insulted by Secession braggarts, and threatened with an nihilation if they did not bend the knee. Fortunately the Republicans are united and earnest in resisting the new method of rebellion, and al though the Brigadiers threaten, it is probable that they will yet have to surrender or suffer defeat. Several important meetings were held here last night, to take into consideration the new Colored Emi gration movement, resulting from the proposal of Senator Windom. Thousands of letters have been re ceived from all parts of the South, asking for aid and advice in this movement, and it was thought best to onranize in some wav, to direct the emigration so that it should not fail of good through lack of intelli gence. Senator 'Windom is doing all he can to promote the interests of tbe colored people in their efforts to improve their condition, and at his suggestion a National Committee has been formed, composed of emi nent citizens selected from all the States, to promote the object. There are signs that the Confederate Dem ocrats are getting frightened at the mignitu3e of the movement. The appointment, of D. T. Corbin to be Chief Justice of Utah, is a tar dy act of justice to a deserving man. He ought to have been appointed U. S. Attorney for South Carolina, where he has stood up nobly for Re publicau principles at the risk of bis life and fortune. Speaker Randall will probably re port his Committees some time next week. It is unsafe to predict when, since he has postponed the day sev eral times in order to prevent his untamable colleagues from rushing into general legislation, as they are expected to do as soon as the or ganization is completed. DEWITT. The Man who Never Smiles. Goveuor Kite was a-.ked to pardon one O'Doneil, of Milbiuy, from Charles town, and a gentleman who recently visited the state j rison thus tells lus story: 'Gentlemen," said the warden, I want to brim; before you one of the most remarkable cases we have iu prison. We call him 'the man who never smiles,' audi wish before he conies in to tell you his story. He suems to be a man of inore than ordinary ability, one of the better class of substantial, frugal Irish citizens, w ho owned a small place in a manufacturing village, where he re sided with his family of grown up sons and daughters, ail " permanently em ployed and in comfortable circumstances. The old man had a tine garden on w hich he bestowed his leisme hours, in a part nt" which was a fine lot of cabbages, n seems that the boys in the neighborhood had a habit of trespassing on the old man's garden, until he had determined of getting rid of thcin by firing his gun to frighten them away. One night hear ing some one in his garden, he took down his gim, and, getting behind the hedge, tired into the garden, as he claims, without aim, or seeing anyone to aim at, but the report of the gun alarmed the neighbors, who, on ru?!i- i ing into the garden, found the lifeless !ody of a young girl shot through the heait. The old man, w hen told what he had done was struck dumb. He was arrested and sentenced to imprison ment for life. He has now been here for ten years, and his free haa become as marble ; there is uo hope ; nothing but the remembrance of that dreadful night. In Ireland they have a supersti tion among the young girls that who ever on Hallowe'en fchall place a cab bage over the door will marry the first voung man that enters the door after wards. And this, it was proved, was the errand of the voung girl in the old man's garden. But 'instead of a wedding she found a giav.." Pisiioxet Fortunes.

Ten years ago a Piute boy of twelve years was captured by General Croolc west of S-tein Mountain, Nevada. He saw the dead bodies or his chieftain father and cf his mother lying near the wigwam and it was with, a heavy heart that he went to work in a San i'rancisco store when taken thither. Nevertheless he learned the English tongue, adopted Han 1'ranciseo manners, became a scholar and joined hands with the peace making brethren of the church. "'jt long since General McDowell told him to go among the Indians and counsel them to bury the tomahawk.
