THE IMPRISONMENT OK JEFFERSON
At last, on the afternoon of the 2:'d, all
doubts were set at rest by the arrival of
Major-Genera! Miles In a special steamer
from Haltlmnre, this officer being now as-rlgm-d
to the command of the fort, reliev

therewith, from the posting of chains of

Hue nf the earliest scene In the cell of
Mr. Davis, as related Immediately after
its occurence by one. who was a passive
actor therein, my own connection with
Mr. Davis not commencing until two
days after (May the L'lth), when I was
first detailed by Major-General Miles as
his attending physician,
Helng ushered Into his Inner celt by On-
eral Miles, and the two doors leading Into
Itefrom the guard room being fastened.
Mr. Davis, after surveying the premises
for some moments, and looking out
through the embrasure with such thoughts
passing ove r his lined and expressive face
as may be Imagined, suddenly seated
himself in a chair, placing both hands on
his knees, and naked one of the soldiers
pacing up and down within his cell this
significant question: "Which way does
the embrasure face?"
The soldier was silent.
Mr. Davis, raising his voice a little, re
pen ted the inepilry.
But again dead silence, or only tho
measured footfalls of the two pacing
sentries within, and tho fainter echoes of
the four without.
Addressing the other soldier, as If tho
first had been deaf and had not heard him,
the prisoner again repeated his Ineiulry.
Hut the second soldier remained slle-nt
as the- first, a slight twitching of his eyes
Intimating that he had heard t he epics
tion, but was forbidden to speak.
Well:" exclaimed Mr. Davis, throwing
hfs hands up and bie'aking Into a bitter
laugh. Then, rising from his chair. he
commenced pacing back and forth beforo
the embrasure, now loowing at the silent
sentry across the moat, and anon at tho
two silently pacing soldiers who were his
companions In the casemate. Then hi
turned to bis soln reading matter, a niblo
and a prayerbook, his only rpmpanlons
those two silent guards, and hisVinly food

served out to tho soldiers of the garrison
-thus passed the llrst day and night of
the ex-President's confinement,
On the morning of the Slrel of .May, :
yet bltteter trial was in store for the
proud spirit-a trial severer, probably, tlmn
lias er in modern times been Inflicted
upon any one who had enjoyed s.ich
eminence. This morning Jefferson Davis
Captain Jerome R. Titlow of the Third
Pennsylvania artillery, entered the prison
er's cell, followed by the blacksmith of
the tort and his assistant, the latter
(irrylng In his hands some heavy and
harshly-rattling shackles. As they "enter
ed, Mr. Davis was reclining on his bed,
feverish and wearv after a sleepless nighl,
the food placed near to him the preceding
day still lying untouched on its tin platrt
near his bedside.
"Weir."' said Mr. Davis as they enter
ed, slightly talslpg his head.
"I have an unpleasant eluty to perform,
sir." said Captain Titlow; and as he spoke,
the senior blacksmith took tho shackles
from his assistant.
Davis leaped instantly from his re
cumbent attitude, a flush passing over
Ills face for a moment, and then his
countenance growing livid and rigid as
lie gasped for breath, clutching his
throat with the thin lingers of his right
lined, and then recovering himself slowly,
while his wasted figure towered up to its
full height -now appearing to swell with
indignation and then to shrink with terror,
as lie glanced Irom the captain's face to
the shackles, lie said slowly and with u
"My Ood! You cannot have been -out
to iron inc?"
"Much are my orders, sir," replied thei
ollicer, beckoning the blacksmith In np
pioaeh, who stepped forward, unlocking
the padlock and preparing the fetters to
do their olllce; These fetters were of
heavy lion, propably live-eighths or an
inch III thickness, and connected by u
chain nf like weight.
"This Is too monstrous!" groined tho
prisoner, glaring hurriedly round tho
loom, as If for some weapon, or means of
self-destruction. "I demand, captain,
that yriu lei inn see th,e commanding
ollicer. Can he pretend that Mich shackl")

Captain Titlow; "his orders aro from

"But he can telegraph," Interposed Mr.
Davlp, eagerly; "there must lie some mis
take. No such outrage ns you threaten
me with is on record hi the history of na
tions. Beg him to telcKiapli, and delay
until ho answers."
"My orders are prcetnptorv," said the
officer, "and admit of no delay. For your
own sake, let mo advise you to submit
with patience. As a soldier, Mr. Davis,
you know I must execute orders."
"These are not orders for u soldier!'
shouted tho prisoner, losing all control of
himself. "They are orders for a jailer
for a hangman, which no soldier wearing
a sword should accept! I tell you the
world will ring with this disgrace. The
war is over; the South is conquered; I
have no longer any country but America,
and It Is for tho honor ot America, as for
my own honor and life, that I plead
against this degradation. Kill me! Kilt
lue!" he cried, passionately, throwing his
nrms wide open and evpolng Ids breast.
"rather than inflict on me, and on my
people through me, this insult worse than
"Do your duty, blai l.smith," said the
officer, walking toward the embrasure as
if not caring to wltnes-s the performance,
"It only gives Increased pain on all sides
to protract this intcn lew."
At these words the blacksmith advanced
with the shackles, and seeing that tho
prisoner had one foot upon Hie chair near
his bedside, his rluht band re-ding on thn
back of It, the brawr. nv ehanic made
an attempt to slip on of the shackles
over the ankle so raise ; lr t, as If with
the vehemence and strei.;;th which frenzy
can Impait even to tin- weakest invalid,
Mr Davis suddenly seized hi" assailant
and hut ltd him half way nrro-.-" the room.
On this Capat.tm Titlow tamed, and
Feeing that Davis had backed against the
wall for fuithcr resistant e, began to ie-
mnnstiate, pointing out in bilof. clear
language, that this coutse uas madness
and that orders must bo cm ireed at any
cost. "Why compel me," he- .iid, "to add
the further Indignity of puii-oiial violence:
o the necessity of you being ironed'.'"
"I am a prisoner of wai tlercely le-
torted Davis; "I have been a soldier in
the armies of America, and know how to
die. Only kill me, and my last breath
shall he a blessing on your head. But
while 1 have life and strength to resist,
for myself nnd for my people, this thing
shall not be done."
Hereupon Captain Titlow called In a ser
geant and file of soldiers from tho next
room and the sargeant advanced to seize
the prisoner. Immediately Davis Hew on
him, seized his musket and attempted to
wrench It from his grasp.
Of course such a scene could have but
one Issue. There was a short, passionate
scuffle. In a moment Davis was flung
upon his bed, and beforo bis four power
ful ussnilants removed their hands from
him, the blacksmith and his assistant had
done their work one securing the rivet
on the right ankle, while the other turned
1 the key in the padlock on the left.
This done, Mr. Davis lay for a moment
as if In tupor. Then slowly raising him
self nnd turning around. In- dropped his
shackled feet to the lloor. The harsh
clank of the striking chain seems first to
have recalled him to his situation, and
dropping his faco Into his hands, ho burst
into a passionate flexxl of sobbing, rocking
to and fro, and muttering at brief inter
vals: "Oh, tho shame, the shame!"

COWBOY!' VOCATION OONE
ISverythlsK Tion "Ftaceit la" Daring
Work la OU Days Wolvea and
Tho cowboy's vocation 'Is gone. Beforo
long a handful ot mn will be all that
tire left leitcll the story of the most
plcttireseiuo occupation that wonderful
America ever developed. Hundreds of
them ure emigrating from ihn Wwit and
finding their way Into other fields of
work. They all lament the passing nf
the old days, and would gtvo a great
deal to get back to tho freedom ot the
plains If the onward march of progress
did not make It Impossible. Their chance
Is past, and never again wilt they sen
saddle service unless they emigrate to
flouth America or Cape Colony. Even
then they would only again witness the
destruction of their vocation."
Burt McKee, of Oklahoma, born and
bred In saddle, cattle ranger nnd cow
boy, scout and Indian lighter, spoke. Ho
was one of the many driven from tho
plains by changing conditions. He went
to New York three or four years ago and
has heen successful, but he Itches to feel
the broncho under him again.
'I'd like mighty well to feel a real cow-
pony under me again. Tho settler havo
spread so thick over the plain that they
busted' the game. Tho land Is so cut
up there are mighty few stretches whero
the cattle can run wild. Everything Is
fenced In, and all the boys have to do
now Is to ride tho line morning nnd even
ing to see that tho wires aro alt In place.
"Only In thn semi-annual roundups for
branding Is there a chance to rope a
steer, except for the four summer ship
ments, when they are corralled to pick
the fat ones for the market. Then a
short drive over the country to the near
est stretch ot railroad, and that won't
be far, Is all tho action you'll got for
"All the pasture land Is now cut up,
nnd It force's the cattlemen to raise his
own feed to kep the herds In winter. In
the old days the cattle could aiwuys find
canyons nnd foothills where tho grass
grew so long that It was easily found un
der the snow. There was no necessity to
provide feed. Nature did It nil. Now you
have to raise grain to save tho rough for
winter. In Oklahoma with the new cot
ton Industry and the finding of oil thcro
will be less chanco than ever.
"When I was a kid out there, scarcely
big enough to sit In the saddle, there
were miles and miles of land over which
the cattle grared. They were as wild as
could be, and a man took his life In his
hands many, many times when he went
out to round them up. And In driving
them he was compelled to drlvo 200 or
PM miles to get them to market over the
roughest kind of territory. I remember
on one occasion when we were taking
8010 head to ship them to Kansas City
or Chicago, we had to cross a stream
where the current was running a tegu
DAIMXn WORK IN OLD DAYS.
"The banks were s-o steep it was im
possible to mount them, save In one
stretch of nbout It ytirds. There was a
solid mass of cattle swimming from one
bank to thei other. The leaders were
across before the tail-coders started, and
between the banks you could have walk
ed across on their backs. n lost VA
head, drowned, and would havo lost many
more had It not been for some mighty
eiulck and daring work on the part of the
"You know when a herd starts to swim
a stream they all follow certain leaders,
If one of these leaders get bewildered
by anything they will swim around in a
circle. The others will follow until u
score or more are locked so tight you
couldn't get a leg between them. There
they would swim, if you would let them,
until every one of them drowned from ex
haustion. The cowboy has to ride out
and mount the backs of the outsiders.
Then he lights his way acrosv to the
leaders. Stooping over lie throws water
in their eyes until he distracts them ami
deflect their cour.se until they are going
straight. There i no chance to ge t back
on his hotse, and In- has to ridu the Heer
ashore-. There he ha: a pretty ticklish
Job dismounting and getting his pony
"A teer. when he's tired, will attack
a man afoot in a minute, and It takes
lively moving to avoid being gored or
trampled under foot by them. In fact,
there Is always danger afoot to look out
for. But a cow brute w-ltl never attack
a horse, unless It's badly wounded eir
completely worn out and unable to run.

NEW ENGLAND AGENTS:
Farmers and Breeders.
As the subscription season of 1904-1905 draAvs to a
close, we make a final effort to induce every progressive
farmer in New England to read tho New England Farmer
the coming year.
The New England Farmer is a paper with a mission:
It is endeavoring to draw together, for the exchange of ideas
and methods, nnd for the purpose of comparing notes,
the Reading, Thinking, Progressive, up-to-date farmers of
New England. If you are one of this kind, and alive to ths
possibilities right here at home and wish to improve them,
we want you to join us, because we know you will help us ia
our efforts nnd appreciate the work we are doing.
Aside from its regular weekly features which makes
it "Tho Best Agricultural Newspaper Published in New
England," the New England farmer will publish during tho
coming year, over 100 special contributions on "The Chief
Need of New England Agriculture," written by the 100
New England men most eminent in sgricultural work and
thought; men who have themselves found the v?ay to suc
cess and are therefore competent to point the way frr others.
Their views and deductions will cover every branch cf this
mighty industry, and will furnish the knowledge which
busy farmers need. In combination these contributions will
make an unsurpassed course of agricultural instruction
they will be the condensed conclusions of the searchings of
practical men and will show how to make certain a sub
stantial increase of happiness and prosperity. Never bo
fore has anything of equal value been written, and never again
will there be an opportunity to gain this accumulated knowl
edge for the price of a year's subscription to tho New Eng
land Farmer only $1.00.
As a mere printed statement of merits would lack the
power to convince, we offer each an opportunity to See, ,uid
Bead, and Know the New England Farmer, and we have suffi
cicnt confidence in both your good judgment and the great
value of the New England Farmer, to believe that a close and
permanent friendship, of value to both sides, will be esta
blished. No matter how many other papers you may reail, you
will still find enough of interest and value exclusively in the
New England Farmer, to make it worth your while to read it
We have spent thousands of dollars to make the New Eng
land Farmer the "Best Agricultural Paper Published," and
now it's "up to you" to take advantage of this great op
portunity. If all we claim is true you should read it. It is
certainly worth a trial ; over 13,000 farmers aro now receiv
ing it and reading it, and we could not hold them if it were
not all we claim. Ask the man who reads it. He will tell
