THE BOSTON MASSACRE.
An Important Event in the Nation's History. On the evening of March 5. 1770, oc currel a riot between the p-opla ex asperated and iriitattd beyond con trol, and a guar I of soldiers uadef Captain Pnato, which is known as the Boston Mas-acre. A sentinel was first a-Biulted, a small file of soldiers came to his support, a large crowd soon assembled, aid the soldier were pelted with Btones, missiles of wood, and p'eces of ice. and were daridto lire. The soldier a stood their ground for soma timo with reasonable patieace, but finally, pressed too fr, tii- y tired upon tbe crowd, killing throe m n instantly and mortally wounding two otoere. The effect of this encounter was electric; the people assembled in thousands from all parts of Boston and neighboring towns, the excitement was intense, and the !-eotle could hard ly be res' rained from falling upon the regiments 1 and wreaking their ven geance upon them. Samuel Adam again came to the front as a great popular lea ler, and one of the most dramatic scenes in his life was his per-ora' demand upon Governor Hutchinson, at the head of a reputation of eiizens, to remove the regiments from Boston. Thee deter mined citizens went in a body to the governor's bou eand demanled the re moval of the troops. Gove-Lor Hutch inson, with his u-sua' policy, off red to remove one regimen'. This was not satisfactory, and Sjmuil - dams ad dressed the governor as follows: "Iti well known that acting as governor of the province you are, by i s character, commander-in-chief of thi military forces within it; and as such tbe troop now In the cap tl ro8ubj-.-t o your orders. If yu, or Col mel Dalrymole under you, hva the piwer to r mov" both, and o Uiotr short of their to al removal will satisfy the people or pre serve the peace of the province. A multitude, highly incensed, now wait the result of this applica ion. The voice of 10,000 freemen demands that both regiments be removed. Their voice must be respected, their demand obey d. Fail not, then, at your psril, to comp'y with this requisition. Or. you alone rests tbe responsibility of this decision, and if the just expecta tions of the people are disappointed, you must be answerable to God and your country for tbe fatal consequences that mustt ensue. The .committee have discharged their duty, and it ie for you to discharge yours. They wait your final determination." The result of this impassioned and peremptory appeal was a compliance with the demsni, and both regimen's were removed to Castle Wil i im in Boston Harbor. From "The Prelimi nary Period of tbe Revolution," in God ay's Magazine for February. Won From the Wizard. The New York Tribur.e tells how "Wizard" Jacob Schaefer, the billiard expert, once lost to a farmer. Some years ago," said the Tribune's informant, "when Scbatfer kept a billiard room in this city, he was al ways ready to plav all comers who de sired a game- Many stringers and people unknown to Schaefer naturally strolled in; many, too, who probably did not know bim. But it made no difference to Schaefer. Sometimes strangers would desire to play for money, but this Schaefer would nevr do. To all such propo-itlon he would ' say: 'No, I won't play for money; but I'll tell you what I will do. I will p'ay a game, the loser to treat th bous.' 'One day an old farmer entered the place, and, after wandering about look r,rr tha niiMnrM on tha walls and examining the tables, he asked if there we were going to Europe. Mrs. wai lis had written to me at Christinas time, which I spent iu the City of Mexico with Jack Darrell and his wife, askiug me to accompany be-. My pocketbook happened to be un usually "high grade" just then to use a westernism as Jack had taken me down to Mexico in his private car and given me "no opportunity to squander my modest income, so I wrote to Mrs. Wallis and accepted her invitation. New York was almost as much of a foreign city to us as any we would see on tbe other side of the Atlantic, but althongb our stay there had been cir cumscribed by the New York hotel, the "It it my 'profession' you would know, mmiamct" Dent snops and tbe passable theaters, and in the nature of things we could not expect to be escorted down to the pier by the proprietors of any of these, however sorry they might be to witness our departure, being aoonstomed to the ready friendships and cordial relations ft tbe. west, we felt a, trifle bine at bar was any one present who would like to play him a game of billiards. Schaefer, as usual, ta;d tat he would play the Stranger. ' 'How much shall we play for?' asked the farmer 'I.,- never play for money,' replied Schaefer, 'but I will play you for tbe drinks for the house.' " 'A'l right.' sail the farmer, 'how many points ha'l w play?' " 'Oh,' repl.td Sjhaofer demurely, in all the consciousness of his superior powers, 'we'll just play until you are satisfied, and we will call that the game.' 'The crowd smied as the players prepared for the contest. The b-'lls were placed on tbe table ar.d Schaefer brought out his fav jrite one, and it fell to his lot to open tbe game. "The operiog shot in a billiard g'ime is a somewhat difficult one, as most players know, a' d bcaefer, probtb v through indifference, missed it. He uot only mssed it, but left the balls close together near one of the cushions. It was what is termed in billiard parlance a 'eet-up.' "The old farmer carefully chalked biscu, and aftar deliberation made the shot. He then gazed at the balls a mome nt, laid down his ou t and ex claimed: " 'I m atisfied.' "The score was then 1 to 0 in favor of tbe old farmer, but as Schaefer had agreed to maka the game as long or sr.ort as tbe former desired, he had to b j s ti-fied. Schaefer, of course, had to invite all present, including his ci nqueror, to pa take of the hospitali ty of the houee. As the crowd laughed and drsDk. Schaefer 'remarked that tbe game was the shortest he bad ever played, and probably the shortest on record." Had Power of Attorney to Get Drunk. Attorney T. H. Breeze tells the fol lowing story to the Stockton Mail: "Speaking of swear-offs," ha said in the bearing of a Ma 1 reporter the oth er day, "remiuds me of a time when I swore off drinking for three months. It W38 several years ago, in New Haven, Concectiout, just after I had left ncnoil and entered a law office. I hadn't been much of a drinker, any way, but it was approaching the an nual swear off period, and other people with whom I was acquainted were turc ing over new leaves, eo I thought I would do something. Just off hand, you know, I remarked I would swear off drinking for three months; declar el that I wouldn't touch a drop of in toxicants until the expiration of that period. Well, about the last week in January, I received an invitation from a committee of my old classmates to attend a reunion. Now, I knew wra' a class reunion meant; I knew there would be a lot of jo'ly g- ol fel'ow tbere old frirnls, I knew that there would be toasts; that I would have to respond to 'The Bar' or'Ttae Law,' and I knew that I would feel Talon g toward? the close of the affair that it matter little whether school kept or not. I resc lvf d to go. when the thought of that confounded swear-off hit me like a wet blanket from the top of a seven story building. I had sworn off in good faith, and I resolved to keep that swear-on. I also roaolved, Incidental ly, t3 attend that class reunion if there was any possible chance to do so with out breaking my promise to myself. I staid up all of one night and missed two meals trying to think of a way out of the dilemma. I got there, too. Tell you how I did it. Made out a power of attorney for myself and got my room mate to sign it Armed with that, I attended the reunion and ban quet, to all appearances myself, but as a matter of law mv-room mae. I don't think I that is mv room mate was ever quite so full before." O ing no gooaDys to say. There was a regular confusion of passengers and their friends all about us, but not as many tragic scenes as I had expected from tbe novels I bad read, judiciously padded with the de scriptions of ocean voyages made by heroes going over to finish their educa tion, or heroines flying from their un happinesses. Who isn't acquainted with the youth or maiden who sits on deck and likens his life to the stately ship plowing its way through rolling billows, or sees in the waves of molten gold the kind friends who would cover her from the world? We didn't see anything like that I do not even remember anybody i who stood on the deck for a last look at Fire island aud a chance to exclaim "Farewell, my native land!" Most of them seemed like us to be going over for the first time, and, also like us, try ing by their easy manners, nautical talk and elaborate array of steamer chairs, steamer caps and steamer nov els to be giving the impression that crossing the Atlantic was an experi ence us familiar as riding on horse cars. Mrs. Wallis and I bad finished our educations, such as they were, long ago. We had no misery to escape. (Mrs. Wallis' husband was dead, and mine was to be got. ) So as we had no roman tic roles to play we began our voyage with the utmost conventionality. We wrote as impressive lookiug letters as anybody and gave them to the pilot when he left us. Mrs. Wallis' was to her housekeeper, and mine to Susie Messersmith, telling her she might ride my horse while I was away, but nobody knew that they were not tbe longed lor last words to some bereaved devotee. And after that ceremony we were fairly off. Tli? sea v?aa tu calm j.U .pUj U TO KEEP THE DEVIL IS A CATE- Queer Relig ons Ceremony of the In diana of Ojinajn, Mexico. On tbe night of January 25 of esch year, says the correspondent of the Globe-Democrat from Presidio, Tex., great fires are kept burning on both sides of the two mountain; that shut in a narrow valley in Mexico jut oppo site the lit'le town of Hrefidio. All night loog, on the rocy trail, leading to the summit of this mountain, there id a continuous procession of devout Mexicans men, wi-mn and children. They wend their way up to the little chapal on the sum i it of the mountain, where they give thanks to the Al mighty for the protection be has (riven them from the devil, and then they mtrcb back to their homes in the va'-j 1 .1 i Aa V. . vinaa .h a mantr KnntniT I heaps of wood each worshiper throws on more fuel, chanting unintelligible words all the while. This is one of the most peculiar re ligious ceremonies evrr witnessed amonz the Mexicans or Icdians. It is xtrictly a local celebration. It has been witnessed by tbe United States customs officers at Presidio, but, owing to the remote locality, but few other Americans have ever heard of it. On the Mexican bank of the Rio Grande, almost opposite Presidio, is situated the town of Ojinaja, which t as a population of about 3000 people, the majority of whom own small tracts of land in the rich valley of the C ncha. river, which they cultivate in a shiftless sort of way. A century or more agro a Spanish priest, or padre, wended hi 9 way northward from the City of Mexico. He crossed rough mountains and desert country, but never wavered in his purpose of finding' a distant and likely spot where he could establish a mission among the Indians. He struck the Concho river Derween tne montns oi Slay and Sep tember, and there was no excuse for seasickness on the part of anybody, so we walked the decks and posed as old sailors in the possession of stomachs whose self possession had never been called into question. As Mrs. Wallis and I strolled along arm in arm trying to think of some sensible and ladylike remark that would be open sesame to the captain's atten tion and favor we noticed a gentleman who was walking in the other direc tion, but upon our line, and who conse quently met us at every turn. "Watch him take in your feet," Mrs. Wallis said flatteringly. If there is one thing that I do pride myself upon, it is my feet. They were looking unusual ly well that day, as I had realized the conspicuousnesff of shoes on a deck promenade. He was a tall, dark man with a twisted mustache and almost stern black eyes, just that masterful sort of eyes that woman past their early girl hood and who have lived in the world are fond of. Poor innocents, when they are young they can find a master in al most any sort of a man. There was nothing bold looking about the prome nader, but be gave us side glances that did not mean utter indifference. "He must be somabody," Mrs. Wallis said, "because you see he is an Italian or a Spaniard or something, and in those countries the middle and lower classes do not look like gentlemen. I'll wager you something he is a count at the very least." "Poufl" And I blew my lips out with scorn, but still some of the air cas tles that I had kept in reserve since my early girlhood for those seasons when my devoted admirers did not suit me or I had none and which had arisen like magic when we began to talk of Europe, went visionlike before me. "Countess" sounded sweet in my ears. Count, prince, whatever he might be, he cer tainly was interested in us. Not that be presumed in the least, but when we went on deck the second morning our steamer chairs were stretched in the pleasantest place, with our rugs com fortably adjusted, and the steward, as be brought us a basket of fruit, men tioned that "the gentleman" bad order ed it brought up as soon as we took pos session of the chairs. We ate tbe fruit and let the steward continue to think that he in some sort belonged to us, al- i though we had not exchanged a single word. That evening it began to blow, iwall tossed tha hin about la ft near the head of ita course and follow ed the sparkling stream to its moutb, where it empties into tbe Rio Grande atOjinfja. 'Here," said the padre, "is an iue-il spot, where I will make my borne and s--rve Gyd." The site of Oiinajawas then oscupied by an Indian village. The padre was well rect ived by the savages But the Indians refused to accept tbe spiritual aid which he offered 'hem. They told him that their own rliirion was bet ter than the new. The padre was patient and did not try ti force the religion wbih ! e preached upon the tribe. He mingled with the Indian and learned their ways and traditions. He discovered that they had many superstitions and that their religious fancies were founded on traditions and superstitious ideas Several years passed and the padre became a leader among the members of the tribe. He worship alone and no longer made any outward attempt to influence the In dians to bis way of thinking on religious matters. But all this time he was planning for a mast r stroke by which he hopei to convert the whole tribe. According to tbe tradition, one beau tiful autumn evening the padre left his little but in the vil'age and started on his usual lonely walk up the valley. He was gone an hour or more wben he rusbed back to the village, crying out to tbe startled Indians that he had eon the devil and bad chased his SHtanio majesty up one of the moun tains and had him imprisoned m a cave on the summit. With all the fervor at his couiDjand be urped the Indians to follow him up the mountain and verify his statement. The Indians, one and all, obeyed his command, and with the excited padre at the head the long procession toiled its way to tbe summit j of the higrh mountain on the right of the valley. As thay went along tne padre, in bis mou impressive manner, gave a thrilling account of his exper ience with the devil. His story to tbe startled Indians is still embraced in tbe tradition and is about as follows: "I was walking up the valley, ab sorbed in thought, wben I chanced to look before me, and trere I saw a great ir-'-n chain stretched across the vallf-y from one mountain to the other. In the cente- of this chain there sat the devi swirjerine- back and forth. No sooner did I get sight of the devil than ! I took my cross out of the bosom of my ' robe and started up the mountain after him. When tbe devil saw me coming after him with the cross in my band he jumped from the chain and started to run away from me, going as fast as he could up the steep mountain, dragging the heavv chain behind him. I follow- most uncomiortaoie manner, tie ui not stay up to eee how many real old travelers there were among the pretend ers, but ignoiuiniously retreated to the seclusion which j cabin grants. The light was just t gliug in through the round window of our statprooni tie next morning when the stewardess made her nppenrance, bearing a tii. with a bottle, two small glasses and a card, t was quite exhausted from my horriblo night, but I found strength to read the card. On one side was neatly engraved, "Henri Valois, Paris." Mrs. Wallis was mistaken. He was n Frenchman after all. On tbe other eiCe was written iu a most gentlemanly hand trith a pencil: "If madame and mndemoiselle will be so good, incred, as to drickthe contents of tl.c Lottie Ly the glassful at inter vals, tbey will find no more nial de mer." "Maybe it's poison," Mrs. Wallis groaned, but I had reached the desper ate stage when poison wai? preferable to seasickness, and she followed me in taking a glassful of the colorless stuff. I don't know what it was. I wish I did, but the second glassful certainly put us upon onr feet. I impressed upon Mrs. Wallis my sense of the kindness of an entire stranger, and that she must give bim our most cordial thanks. We found our steamer chairs again in place just where the evening sun would strike past them, but leave our faces in shadow, and lounging near them was Mr. "Henri Valois." "That is n very interesting and aris tocratic name," Mrs. Wallis had said, holding the card in one hand and her lorgnette in the other. As she firitically examined it, "Valois Valois wasn't there a king or something with a name like that?" I suggested that this might be a branch of the family with tne oar sinis ter, and then Mrs. Wallis said positive ly: "Then that settles it. He is a duke, or a due, at the very least. Those kings always gave titles and estates right and left to that sort of connections. I'll And out!" To do her justice, she made valiant efforts to keep her word. Ah we took possession of our chairs it was the most natural thing in the world that Mrs. Wallis 6hould smile sweetly and bow invitingly to a gentle man who had been of such service to us. Mr. Valois (we longed to say mon sieur, but were conscious thujt tbe pro- ed swiftly after bim, and had almost overtaken him, when he disappeared in the mouth of a cave on the top of tbe mountain, dragging tbe chain in after him. Just as tbe last link of the chain was disappearing through the hole I touched it with my cross and it separated from the chain. I planted my cross at tbe mouth of the cave, and the devil can never leave his prison as long as the cross remains ihere." Tbe crowd of Indians were greatly frightened and impressed with the padre's graphic tale but they followed him bravely to the cave at the top of mountain and in the mouth of the cave they found a link of an iron chain with his cross ineide and standing erect- Overcome by the authenticity of this evidence, they were persuaded to build there a stone chapel, which they called the c urch of the Holy Cross. Tbe date of the building of this chapel is not known of htre. It is probable that the records of the church in Spain or the City of Mexico contain a history of its erection, and that the date is piv-n therein. It is claimed by some people here that it was built over two c nturies ago, while others say that it was in the lat ter part of the eighteenth century that it was erected. It is a substantial stone structure, and the front is beautifully ornamented with carving wbi'-h shows great skill and artistic ability in execution. It must have re quired an immense amount of labor to cvv the big blocks of stone up the mountain nn J p'ace them in their po-i-tions in the walls of the little edifice.

Mr. ; Valois was telling us of an adventure ' that a party of gentlemen had encoun tered in southern Italy. They were go ing by private carriage from one point to another when they were set upon by brigands. From the minute description that he gave of everything he must have been there, but he did not speak of himself once. There was a certain Marquis de St. Lippo who had put his pistol to tbe chief bandit's head and vowed he would shoot him dead if any of the bard lifted a finger and had made the villain order off his men, who fig ured as the hero. I can see him now as he sat on the camp stool, leaning ex citedly forward, the words clipping after each other on his tongue, the white moonlight and tbe excitement of his story making his eyes all aglitter. After we went into our stateroom Mrs. Wallis turned to me with suppressed excitement: "Don't you see it? He is the Marquis de St. Ldppe himself. No man ever took that much interest in his friend's ad ventures." After that Mrs. Wallis tried with all the smartness of the traditional Yankee to bring out some detail of Mr. Valois' private history, but that was the only subject upon which he was silent. One day when she had been unusually press ing ha turned suddenly, and. smiling in her face, said in his peculiar, rather short sentences: "Is it my 'profession you would know, madame? France is not like America. All men do not cast accounts nor keep a shop. It is differ ent. I am a traveler from one beautiful city to another." After that madame retired from ber researches, abashed, but ever since the night of the story of the bandit adven ture Mrs. Wallis bad addressed me as "the marquise."
