'he northwest winds that bad finally iked up tho southern clouds and eezed down a dismal drizzle the ht of Miss Guthrie's departure now red and whisked away tho moist and sbing veil, and the afternoon sun ne of the day that followed streamed 088 the broad inesa in n flood of grate warmth and radiance. Tlie colonel iered out the entire command, to the er consternation of Miss Winifred rrien and the supreme disgust of some f a dozen junior officers, who, count : on the weather indications at nine n., had eagerly accepted Mrs. Ber n's suggestion that they spend their ny afternoon at the major's hospita qiiarters, by way of making it pleas ; for two young damsels from town 1 three or four from the fort itself, of whom were supposed to bo deeply erested and engaged in the embroidery certain altar cloths, lecturn and pui adornments, with which to rejoice » eyes of their amiable chaplain at lijjhristraastide. Hero it was well along November, and beyond a vast amount chatter and conjecture over the pros ective pleasure of the reverend dominie, othing had been done. True, the colonel bad astonished every by ordering out tho entire regi incut, at least the eight companies thero prÂent at the post, to parade for in pection and review, equipped for field ervice. at nine-thirty that morning, end raly reluctantly recalled the order when persistent plashing of the rain earned him that it would take a day or wo of sunshine to dry out the clothing equipments subjected to such a lowupour. And then if anything should Happen and they should bo suddenly :alled upon to bundle everything right the waiting train— Bnt, pshaw! thing jvasn't possible: the idea could be entertained.

Indians would make splendid ward politicians, and how it ia that tho sachems of Tammany have not long since possessed themselves of so available a means of swelling their ranks passeth all understanding. After the Indian had had himself, several wives and his blooming olive branches, "oksheeluh, wicincha," hoys and girls, and snch.pappooses as his better halve« had at the hack (either of home produc tion or borrowed for tho moment from the tepee of T wo-Bricks-iu-his-Hut), duly enumerated, would he not swell the ceil ans of his tribe by judicious distribution of all his wives' relations among those tepees not already checked off? Oh, if the truth could ever reach the ears of the general public what tales of Indian sagacity might not yet lie in store fur them! What annals might not be un folded! Dealing with his own, his white children, who are nonvoters, Uncle Sara serves ont one ration a day to each en listed soldier. monni, ss possessing a spark of Indian life was duly credited to the warrior lord of the lodge for another ration, a foil one. Cattle might and did shrink, bnt to tho Indian there is more meat in a lean cow The wife and the lads and lasses that tumbled about the married men's quar ters in tho queer old days were all to be fed from that one ration, unless, per chance, mamma was a laundress. Bnt when dealing with the wronged and in jured red man he could not lie too mag nanimous. Every head counted. The mumbling old beldam, great-grand mother of "countless thousands," braced up from the edge of the grave for the occasion. The big bellied little four year-olds, reveling in the dirt about tho recking shambles, tho tiny hour-old papoose, even many a puppy, blanket swathed and slung squaw back, passing for a wee baby, anything ho could show than ia the stall fed ox to the white, for the reason that "everything goes." Homs and hoofs are tho only things tho Indian doesn't eat. Agents might and did cheat and steal, bnt so did tho Indian, and many a re joicing old sinner has been credited with n family of twelve when his sole avail able domestic assets consisted of two squaws and three children, the papooses having been borrowed or personated by bundled up doggies, the grandmother being public property passed around for the occasion; the others, pickaninnies ; painted so as to look entirely unlike the 1 grinning urchins counted in the flock of ; brother Stab-in-the-Dark, whose peoplo j had just been enumerated. There were ■ agents who lent themselves to that sort of thing because the more Indians they j could show as their especial wards, the more barrels and boxes and bales wer« invoiced to that agency and deftly "raked off" cn route. There was a time when the man who wouldn't make hay when such a sun shone was looked upon as an unprofitable servant who couldn't contribute to campaign funds, j "What tho devil do you suppose we had I you made agent 'way up at Gallatin for?" asked au irate political "boss" of a deposed and crestfallen late incumbent who came home superseded. "Why, it was you and our congress man who exposed tho stealings of my predecessor and had him fired. I suji posed you wouldn't stand that sort of thing. I supposed you wanted me to be perfectly honest." "Of course we did; bnt, damn it, you don't seem to understand; he was paying to tho other party." But railways and telegraphs have brought all this, or much of it, within range, so to speak. Things hare changed, except perhaps human nature, white or Indian. There has bçen failure to protide for carrying out the earnest recommendations of the best friend the Indian has known for years—the man whoso word was bis bond, whom they feared in war and loved and trusted in peace. There lias been shrinkage both in tlie cattle and the count. No matter how much beef might shrivel on the hoof in the old days, th* Sioux, if he were at all sharp, got more than was his share, and most of the Sioux were as sharp as their knives. Other tribes might have starved and suffered, but not they. With the new order of things came full stom achs for hosts of other aborigines, bnt fault finding for these Dakotas. No more "tepee counts;" on the contrary beads of families paraded their entire force, and while enumerators with liook and pencil went along the front of the line, Uncle Sam's bluccoats on the border keenly watched the rear and put sudden stop to all sham and swapping. Now the shrinkage came to be privation, and, turning in appeal to the general who headed the great commission and won tlxeir faith, appealing to Crook for the remedies congress bad utterly failed to provide, their hearts were bowed with tho tidings that the Great Spirit had summoned the "Gray Fox" to happier hunting grounds. Then was there no other appeal? One —one which had never failed to wring from the government the concession de sired. Old chiefs might plead in vain, but the blood of the young warriors is hot and strong, tho lust for reputation as vehement as of yore. Every bravo stood ripe for action, and no Indian \ 1 | | ! loader over equaled m craft, in cunning, ia ajrqjtnc.ei the scowling old sinnet Sitting Cull, ami no man need doubt that it was lie who gave Iho cue. Every medicineman In the Dakota Nation I« gau to preach tiio coming of the Mes siah, but the Messiah craze was only the moan« to an end. Un-koi-to, the In dian redeemer—he who ordained that hi* children should prepare themselves by the savage rites of the ghost dance to meet him and all their dead ancestry and with them wipe the paleface from the land—Un-koi-to was a fraud of the first water, a masquerading scamp of a white man at odds with ids own kind, and progressive Indians knew it. But even to such a saviour, when urged by the charlatans in every village, the su perstitious nature of the rod man turned in eager adulation, and the ghastly, mad dening dance went on. Night after night all over the broad northwest the skies were aglow with the Indian Arts. The vault of the heavens echoed to the sound of frenzied shriek anil yell and the furious beat of the Indian drum. It is but a step from the ghost dance to the scalp dance—from Indian worship to Indian war. A year ago in every valley of beautiful South Dakota cattle were browsing on Iho bunch grass, settlers plowing on the plains,Women sewing and singing under the new raised rouftrees, and gleeful children playing in the golden heaps of coni. Now the plow stands idle in the abandoned furrow; the cattle have gone, to make up, presumably, for the reser vation .shrinkage; women's songs* have changed to sobs, children's laughter hushed fo terrified silence, ns the settlers seek the refuge of the towns. New red glare in the sky at night, and the new ranch house lights the way of many a savage warrior, bound with arms and ponies to swell the hostile ranks in the mazes of the Bad Lands. "God only knows how soon it may come," read Farqnhar, but a week be fore, "but I think you would better bo with your command." Farqnhar re linquished ids shooting trip and at once got him home. He could not bear to tell his peoplo, in the happiest garrison the regiment had ever known, that per haps it might lie as well to drop the plans for the cavalry ball and the Christmas theatricals, the cherished projects for the coming holidays. Ho bated to have any one ask him if he thought there Were not just a chanceA just a chance—of their being ordered up there. But even before he left he anil Berrien had been talking the mat ter over. The idea was to always have the regiment ready for anything, and it did seem as though with all the sum mer and fall marching and scouting and maneuvering in the Held they were, as the Englishmen would say, "pretty fit." Fit, certainly, for any amount of scout ing or fighting on the southern plains, and yet utterly unprepared for the rigors of a Dakota winter. Any colonel who, serving in Arizona or in the Indian Territory, was to apply for canvas overcoats, blanket lined, for fnr caps, gloves, boots, leggings, etc., intended only for service in the high latitudes, would have been laughed at, if not snubbed. Farqnhar decided it best not to let any of the women worry over a I possibility. No use borrowing trouble, ho said. Long years had the regiment served in that wintry land. Fierco and incessant had l>een its campaigns against the Indians. Dire had beén its suffer ings and losses. Only recently—only within tile year—bad they 'reached this paradise, with its hazy landscape, its lovely, peaceful homes, its kindliness and greeting yet warm in remembrance, the edge of its cheer still new and un worn. And then Kenyon came back from leave, a burly major of foot who had been visiting at his old home iu Chicago and was reported to be wearing tho wil low for a girl who had but just married a mere junior first lieutenant in the Eleventh, their predecessors aloug this lino. It might lie that Kenyon was cross and crabbed. Tito youngsters called him "grurably" at first acquaint ance. It might be that bo was so hipped and unhappy himself he could not beat to see tho bliss and content on every face about him. Ho and Rolfo were con genial spirits, said the boys, for "both oi them got left." But Kenyon, close mouthed as ho was at times, had watched things a day or two and then had given Farqnhar a "pointer." Ho had heard something, lie said, at division head qnarters. Hence the order for "turn ont everybody, field kits and fifty rounds." The maddest man at mess at one-thir ty was Mr. Carroll Brewster—"Curly B" his comrades called him in the years gone by, when he hud much kink to the blond hair of his handsome head, and not a vestige thereof to tho down on his lip. Now, as first lieutenant of the "Black Troop," with a mustache all bristle and carl, and with a pate where on the curls were cropped to regulation lines, ho was a very different sort of fel low. All the morning long bo had sal on a garrison court, whero ns "swing member" he had not enough to do to keop him from brooding over his woes. He had counted on spending the hours from two until stables basking in the light of those wonderful, deep, dark eyes of Miss Winifred Berrien. Some what petted and spoiled in his earlier years of service, Brewster bad had much of the nonsense knocked out of him in tho harsh experiences of seven years in the saddle with a regiment renowned for its touch-and-go sort of work.

WALTER WELLMAN'S OBSERVATIONS ON COURTESY IN POLITICS. Very A mi «in« Harrity anti Whitney A Gentlemen lit the Opinion of Our Cur* respondent — lltirrlton and Clarkson Shed Tears. [Special Correspondence.] Washington, July 18.—Did you ever stop to think how much manners will do for a man in this world? They make or break him,'according as they ore good or ill. Nowhere is the importance of manners more strikingly exemplified than In the national capital, and in pub lic life generally. I thought of this the other day when 1 read of the unanimous election of W. F. Harrity, of Pennsyl vania, to be chairman of the national Democratic committee. That is a groat honor, a great responsibility, a great op portunity. Yet it lias been won by a young man who until very recently was comparatively unknown. At the Chicago convention I mot Mr. Harrity and liked him very much. What was my experience was also that of hundreds of more important persons. He has manners—native, innate, inbred from his gentle Irish ancestry—that will make him friends anywhere. Hcores of prominent men there met him for the first time and were charmed with him. Ho is simple, plain, sincere. There isn't an atom of affectation in his composi tion, not the smallest s[ieek of acting— and this is saying a good deal fur an Irish man. Yon all know these handsome, cul tured, charming Irish gentlemen—good friends, delightful companions, and yet they will blarney just a little. Harrity doesn't. Somehow he contrives to make yon feel from tho first minute yon meet him as if you were old friends. Yon want to be confidential with him, lie cause you trust him, liecnuso yon "take to" him; but until ho knows you pretty well he isn't confidential with you. Harrity has genuine ability, a good head, a strong character. But more than Half his success may be attributed to that rare gift—fine manners. There is another of the same sort. W. C. Whitney, who might have been chairman, but Wouldn't, and who is pretty near the top of the heap in tho Democratic yard, has won his way and is winning his way as much with his good manners as with his good brain. It doesn't matter where lie is or what be is doing—in cabinet council, secretary's office, society drawing room, the crisis of a great political battle like that at Chicago, paying compliments to a countess, placating a faction leader or dealing with an angry and savage word worker from Tammany Hall—he is al ways the same—cool, suave, though firm; quick, butnot previous, smiling while he puts the knife in, bnt always striking fairly. Some men get to tho top without fine manners, but for every ono such 1 can show you a dozen who might hove won success but fur this deficiency. There is President Harrison. His manners never helped him. He didn't win tho presidency on account of ins manners, bnt in spite of them. He says so him self, and he also says there never wonld have been any opposition to his renomi nution had he been fortunate enough to possess tho faculty of charming men through personal contact. He is a no table exception to the rule. Garfield won the presidency with his fine manners, his sympathetic qual ity, which finally, at tho height of a storm, ran through a big national con vention like a wave of light and brought peace. Garfield was much like a wom an. He was all heart, and he could cry at the slightest provocation. Sjieuking of this reminds me of a re markable incident. You wouldn't think President Harrison a sympathetic man, would yon? If you were to hear of his shedding tears you would naturally bo incredulous. Ho is supposed to be one of the coldest of men. He isn't. Only he is so constituted it is on but rare oc casions he shows the depth and warmth of his feelings. Three weeks liefere the Minneapolis convention Mr. Clarkson called on the president. Their interview ran through two hours. They had lieen warm friends and were aliout to part company polit ically. Harrison was going for himself, Clarkson for Blaine. Both are wonder ful talkers. When their feelings are stirred their tongues are magic. On this occasion they were stirred. Tho fire of eloquence melted them both, and when they parted both were in tear*. A remarkable interview between jioHti cians? Yes! But if 1 did not absolutely know the foregoing to bo a true account of it, so far asit goes, I would not Writeit. Chester Arthur had magnificent man ners. His manners, not ids importance, made him the candidate for vice presi dent. and ultimately president. Little Van Buren's manners made him presi dent, too, because they charmed the old lion who had no manners himself, ex cept those which were bad—Andrew Jackson—and Jackson chose his own successor. Old timers say tho finest mannered president wo have had since Van Buren was Pierce. A few weeks ago I was talking with General Stewart L. Woodford, tlie famous orator, on this very subject. Having an admirable courtliness himself, General Woodford naturally admires it in others, and at once spoke of Pierce. "I shall never forget," he said, "au interview which I had with Franklin Pierce. It was in 1854, Christmas day. 1 was then just of age, and my father gave me permission to run over to Washington for a holiday. Of course I visited the White House. Tho doors were opened and I walked in, and there being no one to stop mo wandered through the corridors and rooms, gaping about as a boy will. Finally T found mvself in a large apartment, and on looking up I saw a dinner partvut table. At the first ..lance 1 nerceived I had At the first glame 1 pe oei eu 1 fiai stumbled into the president s uming room, for at the head of the table wa£ President Pierce, and his guests were evidently members of his cabinet or other persons of great imjiortance. "You can imagine my confusion and humiliation. Lout that I was to in >™i« t * «MT"? v r..i »«"!"• room of the president of tho Lnited States! 1 was fairly dumfoanded, par alyzed, by tho predicament in which I found myself, Imt was just finding my tongue to stammer ont some apologjr when President Pierco rose from t'.m fältle, walked toward mo with a kind ly smile on his face and his baud outstretched in greeting. T am very glad to see you.* he said. I — I muttered: '1 1 beg your pardon,' did not intend to intrude, but 1'— 'Do not apologize,' said the president, stnil mg at me and holding my hand In a way that put me thoroughly at my ease; there is no intrusion. Home day per haps you will come here to be president I yourself, and if you do, please think of mo when yon out your first Christina» dinner in the White House.' Could there he in nil the world finer manners than that?" asked General Woodford, General Garfield once said lie never mot a boy on the street without being tempted to take off ids hat to him on ac count of the possibilities of tho lad's fu ture. It is conceded by every one that John Sherman would have been president ero this hod he hud winning manners. They were not natural to him, mid like Har-, rison ho lias lieen too proud to make an effort to acquire them. Like Harrison again, he is misunderstood, for Senator Sherman, now withontquestiod the finest figure in our public life, lias a warm heart and manners which, though lack ing "magnetism," are indicative of true gentility. A man who has made more than one half of his success in public life through his fine manners is Governor McKinley. Probably no man in his party has great er personal popularity than he at this time. Ills urbanity and sweetness of character nearly made him » presiden tial candidate a month ago, and they may yet land him in the executive man sion. Had ho had a tenth part of McKinley'» fine manners Colonel William R. Mor rison might have been president long ago. He was chairman of the ways and means committee, the lender of his party on the predominating issue, a man of high character and great abilities, yet ho could attract and attach men only after they had had opportunity to know him well and to discover how much that is lovable thero is in him—and this was "LTS;m r..b, ta »... lib ssed with tho gift of lino manners aro fi-oin the south. Speaker Crisp is n model in this resjiect. If Senator Dan lei were not lame ho would make u dancing master for the Four Hundred. Senator Ransom's stately courtesy makes one want to take him out of trousers and put him in knee breeches and big buckled shoes, with a fine powdered wig to hide his bald pate. Congressman Hooker, of Mississippi, is another whose dignified and almost ceremonial polite ness is exceedingly charming in a legis lativo body where good manners are si together too rare. Benton McMillin' is a Chesterfield, and Senator Gibson, of Louisiana, is another. But few northern statesmen are dis tinguished for the grace of their speed! and bearing. If we name in this list Senator McMillan of Michigan, Senator Mandersou of Nebraska, Senator Aldrich of Rhode Island and Senator Wash Irani of Minnesota, we shall have practically exhausted it, though of course scores of others are charming and well bred The country could lie searched m<'ii. it long time without unearthing 11 flnci gentleman than the Democratic candi date for vice president, who lias a na tional reputation for his good manners. These same manners contributed more . than any other one thing to the popu larity which led to his selection as Mr. Cleveland's running mate. Walter Wellman. A Cave Full of Trpafiure. [Special Corr<**pondenpo.] Haiuuman, Term., July 28.—Tho un earthing of a largo quantity of stolen silverware, gold lined snuffboxes, etc., in a cave near Jasper, this state, baa created a sensation. Tho story beats fiction n long way. During the winter Of 1863-4 tlie Federal soldiers were en camped for some time on Battle creek. Among them was an Ohio regiment. Not long since a gentleman appeared in tho neighborhood and told the follow He was a member of the Ohio regi incut referred to and iu his moss was a soldier who was a born thief and who never let an opportunity pas* to steal anything ho could carry away During the time they wore encamped at tlie mouth of Battle creek ho hid hi* steal i a" «te in a good state of preservation. The articles have lieen taken to a store in the village near by, and aro being turned over to those entitled to them as rapidly as possible. iiq; story: ings in a cave, and so clever was he in hit, work that no suspicion over fell upon him. A short time ago tho two old comrades were together talking ovor their exiierionces, when the story of the stolen silverware was told and tho re quest made that tho gentleman referred to visit the locality, search for the cave, and if possible recover the bidden silver ware and restore the articles to the rightful owners or their heirs. Tlie old soldier who had so many years ago gone wrong is getting aged and feeble, und to ease his conscience and make reparation, as far as in ids power, he begged Ids old commander to do tliis for him. He was successful in finding not only the place, bnt the plun j der. At least 200 pounds of silverware j of every kind almost were found in the ' cave, ranging from napkin rings to solid I silver water sets. Many of the articles have the owners' initials on them, and J. W. Bbidwell. Browning, It would seem, had a pc-j markable memory.
