Captain McCabe Knew the Sioux Bet er Than They Knew Themselves, and the Indians Knew the Captain's Men Were Dead Shots and Scalp Takers. In the pioneer days to reach Mon tana from Cheyenne, in Wyoming. re quired a roundabout journey that in volved a double crossing of the Rocky mountains. with .a change of base at Salt Lake City. The United States government brought about a better condition of travel by constructing a trail through the Gallatin valley along the course of the Gunpowder river. reaching around the base of the moun tains in a curvilinear form, which avoided the heights of the Rockies. To protect this route from marauding In dians three forts were built-Reno. Phil Kearny and C. F. Smith. In IS6G the murderous Sioux from the Yellowstone valley pursued a san guinary course up through the Gallatin valley and into Montana. It was marked by rapine and plunder. They besieged Fort Reno and killed many of its garrison. They environed Fort Phil Kearny and wiped from the face of the earth every human being whose walls It failed to protect. Then they surrounded Fort C. F. Smith, where 200 soldiers found themselves sur rounded by more than a thousand death seeking Indians. Escape seemed impossible. A courier got word of this condition of affairs to General Han cock, who was then stationed at St. Paul, and he sent a messenger to the governor of Montana at Bozeman. The chief executive of the territory of Montana at that time was Green Clay Smith. He had been a member of congress from Kentucky, but Pres ident Lincoln made him territdrial gov ernor of Montana. He was seated on the porch of his residence In Bozeman when Hancock's message was handed to him. To a visitor he said: "What in the name of heaven can I do? Fort C. F. Smith is 250 miles away. The country between here and there is filled with Sioux Indians. Our militia force consists of exactly 427 men. Not a man of them could reach Fort C. F. Smith alive. I am absolute ly powerless. However. I will send for Colonel Howie." At that time Colonel Neil Howie was United States marshal for the territory of Montana. It was to this man that Governor Smith addressed himself, handing him General Hancock's dispatch and say ing: "Colonel, we can't do a-nything for those poor devils in Fort C. F. Smith. Am I not right?" "No," said Colonel Howie quietly, and with the gentle voice of a woman. "There Is no trouble about that, gov ernor. We can arrange that matter and still leave the Montana frontier protected. I will need some picked men and a good leader for them. I think Captain McCabe is best fitted for this undertaking. I will find him." McCabe was another gentle v~oiced man, with blue eyes. He didn't make much noise. He acted. He said to the governor: "Oh, yes; it Is easy enough. .But I'll need forty of the best men I can select You can keep the rest of your volunteer force here." Governor Smith looked at him in amazement. So did the visitor from the fort. They both thought he was either insane or a braggart. Governor Smith said to him, "How in the name of heaven do you expect to raise the siege of Fort C. F. Smith with forty men when you know that It Is sur rounded by more than 1,000 blood thirsty Indians and that the country between here and there ls:covered with thousands more of murderous Sioux?" Said McCabe quietly: "Why, gov ernor, it is easy enough. The Indians know us and know that we -know them better than they know them selves. You folks from the east have an idea that what you call Indian atrocities are simply unmeaning exhi bitions of brutality; that scalping, for instance, is simply a form of torture. In that you are mistaken. The Indian believes that no man can go to the happy hunting ground- -heaven we call it-who has been deprived of his hair. Their motive In scalping a victim is to carry out fiendish hatred to its utmost by preventing him from having a hap py hereafter. Therefore to deprive an Indian of his scalp is to rob him of his hope of a happy hereafter. My men never kill an Indian without scalping him, and the Indians'know that The forty men I will select for this expedi tion are unerring in their aim with the rifle. They can shoot si:tteen shots in sixteen seconds, and every ball means. a dead Indian, and every dead Indian means a scalp, and every scalp means a warrior deprived eternally of a chance of ever reaching the happy hunting ground. My forty men will walk fro.m here to Fort C. F. Smith without firing a shot." "Incredible," said Governor Smith. "True," said Captain McCabe. What was the result? Forty men walked the 250 miles from Bozeman to Fort C. F. Smith. Indians watched them on every side. By days their progress was signaled by circling columns of smoke and by right by fire from mountain tops. But not a shot was fired. When they got within sight of Fort C. F. Smith the thousand whooping Sioux who held t:he garrison in siege fled, and the forty frontiers men from Bozeman marched in ,and escorted the 200 soldIers back to the territorial capital without the loss of a life. Not a shot had been fired. Not a scalp had been lifted.

Occasionally in case -of serious wounds where there has been great loss of blood the published reports state that "saline solution" was in jected into the veins to supply the de ficiency. The average reader, however, has a very vague if any idea how a solution of salt takes the place of blood. Not to go into a complete analysis of the blood, it is sufficient to note that of 1,000 parts, 780.15 is composed of water, albumen (5 parts, sodium and potassium S.371. coloring matter (supplied by the red blood corpuscles) 133. leaving only some 12 parts to be composed of ibrin. fat, calcium and magnesium. etc. Where there is seri ous loss of bloo'd a state of collapse sets in because. the normal weight of blood being reduced, the heart's action is diminished, there being less resist ance for that organ to overcome. To counteract the result of shock and collapse it is necessary to stimulate the heart by restoring the 'normal weight: in other words. to get it to work by giving it someiug to work on. As the analysis shows, of 1.000 parts of blood nearly 800 are composed of water and sodium. and therefore a plain saline solution makes a good sub stitute. The heart does not know the difference, and it goes to pumping away as usual as soon as this imitation blood gets in the veins. The saline so lution serves to tide the patient over the danger point. As the food is con verted into chyle. new blood is formed. the red corpuscles are supplied- rapidly from the normal tissues, and the saline solulion is thrown off through the se cretions in the usual way. Formerly transfusion of blood was the means employed, but this always objectionable method has been sup planted. The greatest objection to the transfusion of blood from one person to another was that to supply the necessary amount to restore the wounded patient it was inevitable that the volunteer should be almost as bad ly drained, so that the physician would have two patients on his hands where he had one. Besides, there was always the risk of transfusing disease to the patient with the other's blood. Dogs and sheep have been sarificed to sur gery for this purpose, but most people prefer to use blood of their own manu facture to any imported from beasts or their fellow creatures.

Women's Love of Ugly Men. The illustrious men in history who were distinguished as much for the fas cination which they exercised over the fair sex as for their talents and abili ty wvere, as a rule, plain and insignifi cant in appearance. Julius Caesar was a very ill favored man, and yet when a mere strippling, before his fame in Rome, girls of his own age sighed for him and mature women longed for his love. Among the men of later times who were renowned in like manner were Sir Philip Sidney, plain almost to ug liness; Paul Searron, the comic poet, a cripple; Voltaire, unmistakably ugly, and Rousseau, whose manners were awkward as his face was plain, while John Wilkes, who had the power to subjugate any woman who spoke to him .for even five minutes, was admit ted by his own showing to be the ug liest man in Engla'nid in his time. The Toe Nails. Owing to the friction and pressure to which toe nails are exposed in all per -sons who wear boats or shoes there is a -:re' tendency -be thickening on the under. t of the free growth, the por tion of J.e nail that extends beyond the toe point. This thickened part some times gets pressed against the flesh. and then very painful corns result The preventive treatment is to keep the nails cut short and to remove the rather soft thickened parts with a blunt pocket knife or scissors blade.

Two Ways of Looking at It. There is a young artist in Washing ton who classes himself as of the im pressionistic school and who, being somehat out in drawing, generally makes up for his lack of technique by spreading color recklessly and count ing on distance for his effect. At an amateu:- exhibition he once hung one of his. most extraordinary performances. "Well," said a friend whom the art ist had taken to see the work, "I don't want to flatter you, old chap, but that is far and away the best stuff you have ever done. I congratulate you." Much pleased, the artist was receiv~ ing the compliment .with becoming modesty' when he chanced again to glance at the picture and turned very red. The committee had hung it up side down. Hurrying to the head of the commite tee, he was about to launch into a loud complaint when he was informed ,of the good news that an hour before the picture had been sold for $01. The original price mark had been $19 CRUTCH %VALKING. Trials of the Man Who Tried It For the First Time. "No one who has never tried to use crutches can have any idea of the trouble It is to learn to walk with them." says a St. Louisan temporarily disabled by an injury to one foot. "When I was first laid up I antici pated a speedy recovery. but progress was slow, and in order that I might have a little exercise the doctor recom mended a pair of crutches. 'There's no trick at all in learning to use them.' He spoke of it as a matter of course. and I supposed that all I had to do was to pick up the crutches, put them under my arms and walk off, fast or slow, just as I pleased. I had seen men with crutches walking at as brisk a gait as I had ever been ab-e to achieve in my best walking days, so I was delighted with the prospect of get ting out of the house. "The crutches were ordered and sent home. I took them with alacrity, and at the very first step I sat down so hard on the floor that it seemed lo me my spine was driven halfway into my skull. After recovering from the shock I concluded there must be something wrong with the crutches. and a visitor to the house after trying them himself pronounced them entirely too long. So I took off the rubber tips and cut off an inch, then tried them again and would have had another sitting jolt had I not been held. The crutch expert declared they were still too long, so we took off another inch, then two half inchies. That remedied matters some, but I speedily discovered after walking a few steps with a man holding me up that my hands and arms were about to give out and that on the slgltest provocation the crutch slipped from under my arms and wabbled so alarm ingly that I felt every moment as if I was going headlong to the ground. "Then I discovered that I must rest more weight on the top'of the crutch and less on the handles. This was an improvement, but in five minutes the muscles under my arms were so sore that I couldn't stand the pain. Then I put pads on top, only to find out that a brick pavement is the roughest walk ing place on the earth. A Rocky Moun tain path is like granitoid compared to it. The slightest inequality caught the tip of the crutch and sent me stag gering. When I raised my foot to take a step forward my shoe always caught against the bricks, and I would have had twenty falls every fifteen minutes if I had not been supported. "Crutch walking is a science. It must be studied and learned like other sciences. Now when I see a man trav eling along on two crutches I am filled with admiration for his dexterity, but when .I observe a cne legged man getting over the ground on only one crutch I feel that he is a born genius." -St. Louis Globe-Democrat When the Stomach, Heart, or Kidney nerves get weak, then these organs al ways fail.

The man is mistaken. Work does not kill. Work is medicine to the body and mind and spirit. Work is the salvation of men. Work cures a thousand ills. Worry kills. Dissipation kills. 'Worry is largely a matter of nerves or indigestion or liver, or It may be a quality of temperament or it may spring from envy or some other hateful habit of thought. In most cases worry is concerning things pure ly imaginary-things that cannot be helped. One of the best cures for the worry habit is work, hard work of body and mind. Work requires concen tration of effort and mind. That makes one forget his troubles. Work may be made a joy, and In the joy of work ing there is no room for worry. Right living, right thinking, work-these are specifics for most of the ills caused by worry. Dissipation kills.-Atlanta Journal. The Original New Eggland. Not one man in a thousand living on the Pacific coast knows that as a mat Iter of fact the accents of our mother tongue were heard on the beach not far from San Francisco forty-one years before English was spoken on Plym outh Rock.
