A FEARFUL ORDEAL Occupying a seat in the reading room of ii down town hotel one day last week, says a writer in The Alta California, there might have been observed a seem ingly aged gentleman, whose hair was gray find whose cheeks were shriveled. A pallor as of death was on liis face, and frequently the muscles of his features would t%vitch convulsively. His name war. Ricliard J. Allen, and he registered liimself as hailing from Toronto. Canada. five years ago Richard Allen, or Dick Allen, as ho was familiarly known toy his associates, owned, or at least claimed and occupied, a stock range of considerable area in southern Arizona, the Mexican boundary line being distant but a few miles. He owned a large num ber of beef cattle and was considered veil to do. Among the rough population of the border Allen was power. He was most generously gifted, by nature, having a weU knit, athletic frame, and a mind well stored with knowledge. But it was Allen's nerve which secured for him rec ognition and affluence amid the cactus flecked plains of Arizona and New Mex ico—a nerve which knew no flinching, •even in the face of death. The greasers and Indians soon learned to dread the tall stockman, for in more than one en counter they had come off badly worsted, and more than one unmarked grave on the Mexican frontier bears silent witness to Allen's unerring aim, for he never hesitated to kill when he thought him self justified. Very little is considered justification among the class with which Allen was associated. So greatly was he feared and respected by his wild com panions and neighbors that nothing bearing his brand was ever molested, and the most daring of the cowboys and out laws seldom tempted death by a too pro longed argument with him. As an illustration of his iron nerve, it may be related that at one time in 1884 he was given warning to keep away from •a certain small settlement, some ten miles from his ranch, behaving incurred the displeasure of a gang of notorious •cutthroats there. Allen smiled grimly as lie road the warning, then strapped on his revolver and sot forth for the hostile hamlet. He tied his horse in the rear of a saloon and started to enter, •when a pistol shot was heard and a bul let whistled over his head. Allen turned. Not more than twenty feet away stood "Dan," a half breed Indian, with a re volver in his hand. As Allen turned three more balls passed in close prox imity to liis liead. He knew the Indian had one shot left. With a scornful smile •lie said, "Fire again, you and fire lower.'' The Indian did so, and tho next in stant his spirit had left the arid plains •of Arizona forever. Then Allen strode into the saloon, whore at least a dozen •of his enemies were gathered, and de manded to know who sent liim the warn ing. No one answered, and after round ly cursing the gang for their cowardice, he left and went home. For two months lie battled hard with death, for the last bullet lired by the Indian had lodged in his right breast, almost piercing the lung. It was some three months after this •occurrence that Allen met with a mis hap that hurled him from the heights of sturdy manhood to an existence but little removed from death. It was in the summer of 1835. All day long Allen had been hard at work branding a lot of yearling steers, at a point some twenty miles from his dugout, and at night he was completely worn out. It was a wearisome gallop from the branding place to his cheerless habitation, for the air was sultry and the baked ground gave forth an intense heat. It was nearly 11 o'clock when the stock man reached his destination, and glad was he when his pony was safely stabled for the night and he at liberty to retire. He v.as about to creep into bed •when his quick ear detected a slight tioiso in tljo direction of his stable, and he knew at once that prowlers were •about Seizing his revolver, he started for the stable on his hands and knees, for he intended to kill and not to alarm, having no garment on other than his undershirt. The uoise at the stable con tinued. and Allen moved rapidly toward the sound. So intent was he on investi gating the noise that he failed to notice where his path led him, and suddenly, 'without warning, he felt something be neath him give way. and lie was precip itated to the bottom of a ••played out" well, a distance of some twenty-live feel. Tho well had been dry for years, and the mouth had been closed with a few rotten boards, which, giving way under Allen's great weiglit.had caused the catastrophe. For a moment Allen was stunned. The skin on his body had been abraded in a dozen places, and every bone ached with the force of the fall. The stockman was almost overwhelmed with rage, for in this accident he saw himself rendered helpless, and knew the thieves, if any there were, would not leave as much hahinrf as a lariat, and might, should they discover his position, kill him. With a muttered curse of despair he turned to look tor his revolver, deter mined to fight to the last, should an at tack be IBI1*"upon him. As he turned In itw gleaming and flashing in the •aorky darkness a pair of small, beady «yca, and poor Allen's heart almost stood •till, for a warnirighlii and rattle tol4 him he had in tne Well as a companion a rattlesnake, the reptile rattled angrily, and moved his head from side to side in an uncertain way, and then behind Al len there came an answering sound, and he knew he had two reptiles to cope with instead of one. The snake behind him soon crossed the well and joined its mate, the two meanwhile keeping up an incessant rat tle. Their slumbers had been rudely disturbed and they seemed determined to resent it if possible. Allen stood as if petrified. He knew a movement on his part meant an attack, and thisr attack to him must result in death. And such a death! He imagined himself bitten by the snakes, and his fancy depicted a frenzied being, with veins filled with burning poison, wildly grappling with the scaly, venomous rep tiles, and striving with the desperation of the awful fever to mount the hard sides of the well and die on the plain above beneath God's smiling stars. Tho sweat poured from the poor man's body in streams. The snakes gave forth that musky odor peculiar to them, and this, taken with the closeness and warmth of of tho air, produced a sensation as of suffocation. In a moment, still hissing angrily, one of the snakes began to move, and Allen saw its glistening eyes at his feet. The clammy thing crawled over his bare feet and circled around his naked legs. The creature seemed to like the warmth of Allen's body, and stopped for a moment. Then it slowly began to ascend his limbs to his body, and soon the terrible eyes were looking into those of Allen, and they seemed to burn through to his brain. Up over his face the creature moved its head, and then encountered Allen's crisp and curly hair. With an angry rattle the snake drew back his head, and Allen, knowing it would strike, raised his hands as quick as lightning and gripped the creature by the throat. With the other hand he grasped the rattles, and then he slowly, surely strangled the creature to death, though the fearful effluvium which it emitted almost caused him to faint. For half an hour he held the snake firmly he saw the malignant light in its eyes grow dim and finally disap pear, and then he knew one enemy at least was dead. But he dared not drop the dead snake, for the other had become uneasy at the disappearance of its mate and seemed on the point of starting out in search. Tho fierce, glaring eyes moved from side to side, the rattle was seldom still, and Allen never for a mo ment took his eyes from those hostile orbs. For hours he 6tood thus, consumed with a feverish thirst, his nerves at a terrible tension, and his eyes strained and almost bursting. ^Then the sky above him bC£an to light up, and a little ray of sunlight danced on the western wall of his underground prison. In a few mo ments the well was quite light, and then Allen and his remaining enemy saw each other at the same instant. The snake coiled and sprang, but Allen was too ac tive. He stepped to one side and let the snake go by him. and then, with a small club, crushed out the venomous life for ever. Then it was that Allen's great nerve gave way. He yelled and shrieked and cursed and tore in a mad delirium and when neighbors, attracted by his cries, rescued him an hour later, he was frothing at the mouth, bleeding at the nose and the snakes wero torn to shreds. For weeks he lay in his cabin on the outer edge of death, but his sturdy con stitution stood by him, and he recov ered, though he was but a wreck of his former self. His neighbors "rounded up" what little stock he had left—for the thieving residents of the frontier were quick to take advantage of his helpless ness—and Allen left for New England, to recover, if possible, his former health. But the shock was too severe, and Allen will never be a man again. At tho age of 36 he is as infirm as a man of 70, and his life is devoid of pleasure. He cannot remain long in one place, for his nerves demand a constant change of scene, and he is a homeless, helpless wanderer. Soon death will come to his relief, and then, perhaps, Allen will learn why this dreadful plague was visited upon him.— Boston True Flag. SALARIES OF DAKOTA POSTMASTERS.

A MISTAKEN IDENTITY Four or five mules bad been stolen in and about Qlen Cove, and the thief had been sharp enough and lucky enough to get off with them. The mountain peo ple lose a razor backed hog now and then and raise no row but when a thief has the nerve to come along and run off a mule the situation assumes a serious aspect. The bulwarks of American lib erty totter to their foundation, as it were, and it is high time that the Ameri can eagle be unchained and encouraged to scream his loudest. Every farmer in the Cove was out at night and on the watch, and although they may have dif fered on religion and politics, all were agreed as to what should be done with the thief in case he returned after more mule meat and was captured. The above can be imagined as scene first. Scene, second opens with your humble servant approaching Glen Cove at 10 o'clock of a starlight night. If 1 could have had my way about it I.should have done the approaching act several hours earlier but a towheaded boy who was carrying 50.000 freckles on his face gave me a wrong steer on a short cut, and I was lost for two or three hours. I had heard nothing of the excitement at the Cove, and felt no fear except of the farmer's dogs. The first building I came to looked to me like a large log house, and 1 turned off the trail and approached it. 1 was close up before discovering that it was a barn. I was about to turn away when several men stepped into view and a hearty voice sung out: "Throw up yer hands or we'll riddle ye!" The man who won't throw up his hands sooner than lie riddled must want to get out of this world by a painful pro cess. "Now, then, some of ye tie him! Look out fur tricks. If he'un makes a move, be ready to bore him!" I didn't attempt any tricks, and when they had tied my hands behind me and fastered a leading rope around my body, the leader said: "We'll take him down to Crocker's and see if Jim's boy kin identify." There were five sturdy mountaineers, each armed with a gun, and 1 wasn't saying a word. I realized the situation by tho help of some remarks dropped a3 we passed along, and 1 felt that it was useless to protest until the proper mo ment came. About ten rods below Crocker's house was a fine, large tree, and as we passed it the leader of the band remarked: "We'll dangle he'un from that ar' limb up thar'." !t was a nice, large limb, growing at a convenient height, and 1 would no doubt present a good appearance while doing the dangling act. What may be called scene third took [ilr.ee at Crocker's. A gun was fired as we arrived, and in the course of a quar ter of an hour five more farmers arrived. They hud been out on watch also, and this was the signal to rally. It was while waiting for this rally that 1 asked one of those who hail captured i:ie: "Do yon suspect me of any crime? A re you looking for a nsliljer or munierer'r" •"Suspect.! tn course we suspect!" he replied. "Dut isn't it possible that you nave, made a mistake?" "Reckon not: but we can soon find out. Crocker's boy Jim got a f'a'r sight of he'un by daylight, and he'll tell." "Very well. If the boy says he ever saw me iii these parts before you may go ahead and hang." Great was the rejoicing when the other party arrived. Not a man of them had the least doubt that 1 was the party wanted, and two of theio insisted that valuable time could be saved by hanging me at once. "Yes, that's so." replied the leader., "but we'd cut the fun Uo short. Better save he'un for an hour or two. Pring him into the hous» Crocker's boy Jim was a lad of 12, and 1 no sooner laid eyes on him than I felt a presentiment of evil He had been routed out of bed to identify me as the person he had seen hiding in the woods on the day the last mule was stolen. He made short work of it. He looked at me for ten seconds and tlien said: "He's he'un! I'll sw'ar to it on forty Ribles!" "Dead shore?" asked the leader. "Yes." "That's 'nufF! Up lie goes!" It was high time for me to do some talking I told them who 1 was, the route I had come, the people 1 had met. and 1 asked them to look over my papers. They said it would Ix* throwing time awav. and that it was sellish in me to want to delay matters, and 1 guess they would have had their way about it but for Mrs. Crocker As they started to lead me out doors she said: "Look ye.-«). boys, dou't make no mis take. Our .iin may liev mistook. He'un tells a smooth story, and it may be right. It hain't !ut fo' miles back to Dobson's. whar' he says he took supper, and tine of ye' should ride over." The men grumbled and growled, but was finally decided that one of them should go. 1 was s^aN'd on a rude stool, the rope tied fast aVut my legs, and we Sat there to await tie* return of the mes senger. Jim was questioned again and again, hui lie stuck to his first doelara tion. 1 could give them my route for the last three weeks, and the name of every town, village and cove, and I had letters to prove I had been to those places. But for young Jim l»eing so sure of my identity. I could have convinced them. They were doing the fair thing, however, by sending a messenger back. and I had no fears of the result. It was daylight before he returned, and he had two men with him. During the interval I was examined, cross examined and turned wrong side out. The greatest doubter was an old man who had lost his two mules. "Look at he'un." he exclaimed, point ing at me as 1 sat there. "Look at the build of his head—the look on hi9 face— them suspishus eyes. He might fule a young man, but he needn't try it on me. Whar'a my mewls, ye onery villain?" Ten minutes after the men rode up I was cast loose and apologized to. I could realize how naturally the mistake came about, and the men were not to blame. It was all right with everybody except young Jim and the old man. The latter had bragged of his cuteness, and his de feat annoyed him. He went off shaking his head and predicting that 1 was up to some trick. I had forgotten the boy when, half an hour after breakfast, I heard a terrible racket behind the corn crib. Word came that I was wanted, and 1 went out to find Jim tied by the leg and his father trimming the second "gad." "Now, sonny." said the father as he got ready to use it, "take a good look at that 'ere stump befo' ye. Two days hence ye may be axed to identify it, and ye may sw'ar up and down that it's a blooming cheery tree! You jist cum powerful nigh o' gettin' all this cove in a scrape, and I'm a-goin' to improve yer eye sight!" And Jim received the nicest, most thorough and lasting licking ever given to a boy south of the Ohio river.—M. Quad in Detroit Free Press. The Wonderful Ways of French Thieves. That mournful establishment, the morgue, was surrounded by a howling and angry mob yesterday. The burglars who plundered tho villa at Auteuil the other night and cut the throat of the caretaker of the house were taken to the morgue for the purpose of the usual "confrontation" with the corpse of the victim, and as they were entering and leaving the dead house tho people roared and made ineffectual dashes at them. M. Guillot, the juge d'instruction, had arranged an extra dramatic bit of busi ness for the occasion, having brought down to the mortuary Mme. Bourdon, the mother of the man who had beeu murdered by the burglars. The magis trate had done this for the purpose of making an impression on the miscreants, who are all hardened in crime, and whom the mere spectacle of a dead body would not move. Allorto, the Italian, who was captured the night of the burglary, was the first prisoner examined at the morgue. He said that when he and his confederates went into the drawing room of tho villa they saw Bourdon pretending to bo fast asleep on his iron cot. Thereupon they danced around him, and Cathflin, vine of the gang, said, "Your last hour has come, old chap!" and struck hiin several times in the face with his fists and then with a burglar's chisel. Allorto, accord ing to his own account, made Bourdon turn palo and green by screwing his wrist in a vise, but the victim still-affect ed to be asleep, and a burglar named Sellier tho Manchot then said, "We must finish him off," and stabbed him several times in the chest and stomach. After that the band began to dance, Cathelin and the fellow nicknamed the Manchot intoning the popular ditty, "Pere la Victoire." Finally Cathelin, who, as Allorto said, is "a bit stage struck," suggested that all the Lurglars should place their candles around the dead' body 'as' in the scene in Sardou's "Tosca."—Paris Letter.

A Member of the Fungi Family That Tickles the Palate of the Epicure—Bow They Grow and Are "Caught"—Attempt* at Cultivation Cnsuccemful. Probably few of the thousands of peo ple who have enjoyed these culinary dainties are aware of the manner in which they grow or the circumstances in which they are obtained. Others, again, who have perchance never encountered truffles or met with them in the bill of fare or upon the menu of the dinner table—for they are not sufficiently plenti ful to be a popular article of diet—will have but a confused idea as to what de nomination the}' belong, such confusion being heightened by reason of the term "catching" or "hunting" being used to denote the means by which they are ob tained. It is, therefore, not unnecessary to explain that truffles are underground fungi, those which are the subject of commerce belonging to the genus "tuber," whilst others which bear the name are of related though different genera. In England they were formerly known as "trubbes," both names being doubtless derived from the Latin terra) tuber. They are somewhat oblong or globose, and vary in weight from a couple of ounces to several pounds, according to the species, locality and the circum stances in which they are grown. They vary somewhat in color some are white, but generally they are of a black or dark brown color, and of a rough exterior, the skin being thickly covered with wart like protuberances. When cut through with a knife, they present a different ap pearance from that of any other fungus. Veins traverse the mass in all directions, giving a marbled character that is a dis tinctive feature of the truffle. When closely examined, minute sacs will be noticed in the veins. These contain spores, which are covered with spines. DOGS AS TRUFFLE HUNTERS. Not much is known of the early de velopment of the truffle, owing princi pally to its peculiarity of growing under ground, where it is free from observa tion but when found in the mature state, in which they are used for food, they are altogether free- from attache rnent, cither to the ground or to any other body. They are commonly, if not invariably, found in woods, the pres ence of oak or beech trees appearing to favor their growth. From this fact it has been inferred that thej7 are of a para sitical nature, and that at some stage of their existence they derive their nutri ment from the roots of trees. Light calcareous soils are those which most frequently produce truffles, and in Eng land they are chieC'y obtained from the hill districts and chalky grounds of Hants and Wilts. Those, however, which chiefly supply the English mar kets are brought from France or Algiers. Truffles emit a fragrant odor both, dur ing their growth and after they are gathered. It is this characteristic which favors their acquisition, as. being buried, out of sight, some other faculty has to bo employed to discover their presence. For this purpose the keen sense of in the dog is taken advantage of. and dogs are systematically trained for the purpose of "truffle hunting." This ser vice is sometimes performed by pigs on the Continent. The dogs are trained by the device of hiding a truffle and re warding the dog each time he discovers its place of concealment. By degrees the dog soon learns to search in the woods, attracted by the perfume.,and scratches at the spot under which re poses the hidden fungus. He is. then, re warded by a piece of bread, andi the truffle is carefully exhumed. The "catching" or "hunting" of truffles is a regular means of employment for men and dogs Ln those districts in which the fungi exist in sufficient quantities to ren der the work remunerative. NOW TO PREPARE THEM. The attempts at artificial reproduction or cultivation of the truffle have not been successful, as mycelium or spawn, from which other fungi (such as-mushrooms') are readily produced, has uot yet been obtained. Success bars occasionally at tended the sprinkling n? suitable ground with water in. which the fresh pee! of truffles has been steeped. The oiler and flavor of truffles are most distinctive, and the delicacy of this flavor is highly esteemed by cooks, these fungi feeing generally employed for flavoring meats. The fresher truffles, are used the better, as the}' lose their perfume by ex posure to the air. Thus, English truffles which reach the market fresh gathered are preferable to those obtained from abroad and those. .gain, which are deeper in the ground are superior to those found near the surface, possibly owing to the same reason—viz.: that they have been better protected from ac cess of air. To cook truffles, they should first be well washed—if necessary scrubbed with a brush—in warm water, rinsed and then boiled (according to size) from two to three hours. They may bo served, hid den in a napkin, as if they were chest nuts. They are eaten at the second course, dry, with cold butter. The game is eaten with them, and the crisp peel is not discarded. Some people boil truffles in champagne, under the impression that they acquire the flavor of the wine. This is a most extravagant and useless cus tom, as, in the first place, the tough skin of the truffle is quite impervious, and secondly, the wine, diiectly it is heated to boiling point, loses all spirit and flavor. If it is desired to put truffles into a salmi, boil them separately, then peel and cut them up when the dish is ready, then over all pour the gravy or sauce. They should also be cooked separately if intended for insertion into a boar's head or for combination with the stuffing for a turkey. In the latter case they should be peeled and introduced with the stuff I ing.—London Queen. Th« receipts of the New York centea-1 nial celebration were $170,323.01, and Q. H.SPANGtZJSR ANTON HAAA.
