Mills, editor of the New Northwest, received a more valuable Christmas gift than any other newspaper man in the territory. It was a son. Fireworks Out West. Fireworks Out West. Many years ago when Denver didn't have any Opera House, and the Rocky Mountain country was terra incognito of the world, there wandered out to the region of Fort Benton a man named Exbeadle, who made himself unpopular among the Shoshones by killing some of the most prominent men whenever he could catch them away from home. As a result of this course of proced ure, Mr. Exbeadle had a large private cemetery, and hostilities were declared by the tribe. Mr. Exbeadle was a speculator, and one day fortune threw in his way a lot of lireworks that didn't meet with a ready sale and he purchased them, more for his own amusement than anything else. These ho put to one side, and didn't think of them again until one day there was a council of war in the Shoshone tribe, at which it w as resolved to extinguish the light of Mr. Exbeadle, and send him across the mysterious river. They notified him that the intention was to make him climb the golden stair in about fifteen minutes, Western-time. It looked pretty dubious for a moment, and he didn't know exactly what to do, not having time to consult counsel. It was a dark night in autumn, and Mr. Exbeadle felt that the morrow would be of v* ry little interest to him. Like an inspiration, however, came the recollection of his fireworks. He rose and said : "Gentlemen of the forest, you appar ently have the bulge on me, and I ad mit you are largely in the majority, but you do not know me. I am a medicine man from Michigan, and I can make it mighty interesting for you if you carry this thing too far. I just say this for your own good, and more in sorrow than in angei. If you take out my vitals and feed them to the vultures Ï will linger near you in the spirit, and I will annoy you pretty plenty. I am aware that I have planted some of your leading men in the cold, cold ground ; but that isn't a marker to what I will perform when I get out of the flesh, where I won't be delayed by the in clemency of the weather. "I will now proceed to show you a few little amateur efforts of mine as a medicine man from away back." Mr. Exbeadle then let off a new style of sea-serpent from a slight elevation. It was the biggest thing in the line of pyrotechnics that was ever turned loose west of the Missouri. It shot out* into the dark about nine feet like a car load of delirium tremens and squirmed through the inky bosom of night like an uneasy demon in his sleep. The gather ng warriors of the tribe took one hor rified look at the hissing emissary and 'it out. They left all their baggage that didn't happen to be tied to them, *ind there hasn't been a Shoshone In dian seen there since. Mr. Exbeadle picked out the best ponies belonging to the tribe, loaded up the rest of the fireworks, and went home. He lived many years after, and became one of the most trusted Indian Peace Commissioners known in Western history .—Bill Nye. Adulterated Wines.
