PACIFIC COMMERCIAL ADVERTISER, MARCH 13, 1888.
WEDDING BELLS. The wedding bells are linens'. Sweet joy and gladness bruising' To eTery heart, who from their peal, V nds Lore'a rich radiance springing; And though the lips may falter. To speak before the altar The words that bind, "Till death do part," yet sweetly with the Psalter "O, Love, divine and tender. Veiled in thy softened splendor," Wo chant with trust, thy praise, and pray: 'Oh, be this home's defender; God bless thi se hands united! And bless these hearts thus plighted! In all their lives may they be one, unsevered and uublighted. Give grace in fullest measure, Let duty be a pleasure. And every gift that Fortune sinds, accepted as a treasure. Sunshine and shadows sharing. Each for the other caring. And each, with tender heart and true, the other's burdens lxaring. sweet So, by thy Spirit guided, Life's duties all divided. May all its complex choices be by Love's voice decided. Thus with bright hopes supernal. Through all life's season vernal. May each receive, for work well done, a home and life eternal. L. A. Morrison. CIIIQUITO GOT A CHEW. uiie or a party or iour seated arounu a table in an up town cafe was a sedate looking gentleman, small in stature and faultless!' dressed. Extreme neatness .vas the first thing that struck one in looking at him, yet there was a sugges tion of virility about him that made his careful attire seem out of place. One of the four addressed him familiarly as "Chiquito." The name struck another of the party, who then heard it for the first time, as a rather singular way of ad dressing the sedate if not solemn Mr. Smith, and he said something to that el feet. "Oh, that's what our friend here and nil the other fellows used to call me in the old days when we were forty-niners in Ci. ilorria," said Chiquito. "It is a sort of hybr.d Spanish, you know, and means p.nall; it fitted me exactly in those days. I'm not of a large pattern now, but in those days, when I was a youth under 20, I was not filled out and was very small, nlthough I did carry the United States mail on horseback over a stretch of forty niles, nearly all of it a lonely mountain road." "You must have met some queer people and strange incidents on those rides," one of the party remarked. "Not often," replied Mr. Smith. "Many a time I went over the whole dis tance out and back without meeting a hu man being. Sometimes, however, I would come across a stray Indian and sometimes meet a white man, who always had a fcmall arsenal strapped about his waist and a pair of pistols in the holsters of his saddle. It was a renconter with one of those'gentlemenat the loneliest spot in the lonely mountain road that is almost the only vivid memory I have of those days iu the long ago." There was a general desire expressed to hear of that incident, and Mr. Smith con tinued: 'Well, you know, to be a forty-niner in California you had to use tobacco in all forms. I don't know that there was any compulsion about it, legal or moral, but everybody did, and young as I was I did what everybody else did. So it was my custom to go to the store just before start ing on my journey and buy a large hunk as they called it out there, weighing about half a pound, which would last me out and back. But, one morning, having a small remnant of the weed left from my last trip, I forgot to get my usual supply before I started off with my mail. Queer mail that was, gen tlemen, and rather expensive to the gov tnment. What the contractor got I never knew, but he paid me pretty well for car rying it, and I never had over half a dozen letters. Once in a while a stray news paper would sometimes- escape the many dangers of confiscation on the long route from the eastern states and find its way into my pouch. Sometimes after it got to me it would reach the person addressed to, but often it would not, for when it at last got to his postofiice he would be dead. "Well, that morning I had only half a dozen letters and no newspapers, and had got about ten miles on the road when I made the unpleasant discovery that I hadn't laid in my supply of tobacco. I reined up to consider the horrors of the situation. I was carrying the United States mail, which, small as it was, could not oe trilled with by my going back to get the tobacco. Yet the idea of going witnout. ior two days was insupportable Mnally 1 made up my mind I would have to endure the hardship as best I could, and jogged on again. I had got about half way on my journey and was well up the narrow winding mountain road when I Naw a mounted man coming toward me. lie was a mile or more away when I lirst saw him, but owing to the sharp turns in the road he seemed to be quite near, and l saw mat ne was a powerful fellow, and I knew he was well armed, for that was a custom ot the country. I knew, too, that 1 could as safely ask him for his horse as for any of his tobacco, unless he happened to have a very large supply, which was not nicely, uut I made up my mind he had to contribute, so I got out my pistol. wui xiciu ji u ne rouuin i see li. as our horses touched noses we stopped, which was nothing unusual, as two white me:i meeting always halted to exchange item uf news, of which, as a general thin-; neither had any. " 'Mornin stranger,' said he, and I re peated the greeting. 'Any varmint about?' he inquired, meaning Indians, and I assured him there were none. Then it came my turn to ask questions. " 'Got any tobacco, stranger?' 'Yes, an' I'm goin' ter keep it,' " 'Guess I'll have to trouble you fo a bit.' 44 'Guess not,' " 'Guess I must.' And In an instant I had him covered with my revolver. He took in the situation at once and was con vince 1. He drew out a long piece of the blacx; stuf called 'iTavy,' which some of you gentlemen may have seen, but I tope have never tasted. He extended it to- growled more gruffly than started oil down the road. As he passed by me I turned in my saddle and kept him covered with the pistol until he h&d disappeared around a bend in the road.! hven then I v.aited for some minutes foe fear he would turn back, but finally being convinced he had no intention of coming back, I got off my horse, clutched my prize, and having mounted went on as fast as the steepness of the grade would permit; not that I was running away, gentlemen oh, no, not at all. But you see I was carrying tue United States mail on scnedule and I was making up for lost time." Here Mr. Smith paused and medita tively smoked his cigar. "I suppose you never saw your bene factor again," remarked one of the com pany. "Oh, yes, I did, only a few days after wards, and that is the best part of the story. When I got back to the home ranch from that trip the first thing that I did after stabling my horse and putting away my arsenal with the mail bag in the postofiice was to stroll down to the store to lay in a supply of tobacco. The store, you know, is the one resort for every body in a small settlement. It was so in California; it it so yet in every village in the United States, where, as a rule, there is only one store and that deals in every thing. Well, I went down to the store. It was full of men, as it always was. I edged my way up to the counter and asked for tobacco. A tall man who had his back to me turned around at the sound of my voice. It was my friend of the mountain. I recognized him in an instant, but hoped he did not know me. But he did, and remarked: " 'Youngster, we've met before.' "I knew from his tone it was useless to deny the fact and admitted it, while I was preparing to dodge his first bullet, with the hope of e3roping altogether in the fusilade that wonid be sure to suc ceed it. But to my intense surprise, he showed no intention of drawing a weapon. On the contrary, he thrust out his hand with the remark: " 'Youngster, your name. You'll do. Shake!' "He had the grip of a vise and the strength of an ox. I would rather have taken my chances with his bullets than have endured his friendly grasp again. But, happily, I was not called upon to do it. The stranger extended a genial invi tation to everybody to 'liquor up' and gave the crowd a minute account of our first meeting, ending with the compli ment: 'Youngster here is game, you bet. With the words he had paid his score, and, striding out, mounted his horse and . If CJ "You got well out of that scrape, Chi quito," remarked one of his hearers. pose?" "Yes, I did. A few days afterward his identity was established, when he was hanged in the next settlement by a vigil ance committee for horse stealing. Then it came out he was one of the most noted and daring desperadoes in the countrv. He had committed several murders and was suspected of others, but they had been done in remote places, and as he had never been in our settlement before the time I encountered him it is not strange nobody there knew him. When it became known who he was there was much marveling as to how I had escaped. I fully shared in it. I suppose it is hardly necessary to say that if I had known who he was I should not have ventured to request him to share his tobacco with me." Xew York World. &&vttti$tmtns. A Remarkable Case. Under the above heading the "X)oiit caster RejKrter" of July 6, 1887, pub lishes the following in its editorial col umns: Our readers may recall the circumstance of a young clerk, named Arthur Itichoid, falling insensible on the Wheatley Lane in this town some time ago, and being picked up, as he continued perfectly helpless, and taken in a cab by two gentlemen to the office of F. W. Fisher, Esq., the solicitor who employed him. On restoring him to consciousness it was ascertained that he was afflicted with what seemed to be an incurable disease. When he was able to speak he said he had been to his dinner and was on his way back to his work, when suddenly his head was in a whirl and he fell in the street like a man who is knocked down. On coming to his senses in the solicitor's office he thought what this might mean, and feared he was going to have a fit of illness, which we all know is a very dreadful thing for a poor man with a family to care for. With this in his mind he at once sought the best medical advice, telling the doctors how he had been attacked. Thev oues- - tioned him, and found that his present malady was exhaustion of the nervous system, resulting from general debility, indigestion and dyspepsia of a chronic nature. I his in turn had been caused by confinement to his desk and grief at the loss of dear friends by death. The coming on of this strange disease, as described by Mr. Richold, must be of interest both to sick and well. He had noticed for several years previously, in fact, that his eyes and face began to have a yellow look; there was a sticky and unpleasant slime on the gums and teeth in the morning; the tongue coated ; and the bowels so bound and costive that it induced that most pain ful and troublesome ailment the piles. He says there was some pain in the sides and back and a sense of fullness on the right s-ide, as though the liver were enlarg ing, which proved to be a terrible fact. The secretions from the kidnevs would be scanty and high-coloredi with a kind of gritty or sandy deposit after standing. These things had troubled Mr. Richold a long time, and after his fall in the street he clearly perceived that his fit of giddi ness was nothing more than a sign of the. steady and deadly advance of the com plaint, which began in indigestion and dys pepsia. His story of how he went from one physician to another in search of a cure that his wife and little ones might not come to want is very pathetic and touching. Finally he became too ill to keep his situation and had to give it up. This was a sad calamity. He was appalled to mint ot how he should be able to live. But God raised up friends who helped to keep the wolf from the door. He then went to the seaside at Walton on-the-Naze, but neither the change, nor the physicians who treated him there, did any good. . All being without avail he visited London, with a sort of vague hope that some ad vantage might happen to him in the me tropolis. This was in October, 1885. How wonderful, indeed, are the ways of Providence, which dashes down our high est hopes and then helps us when we least expect it. &iltrtfttttut. Meat Company, 81 lilXU STltKCT, G. J.
