The C. A. R. Encampment.
Tbe little episode of a tew G. A. R. de partment commanders meeting at Chicaco a few days ago, and resolving to withdraw their departments from parade at Milwau kee during the national encampment, is looked upon by the rank and file of the or ganization as a very injudicious usurpa tion of authority. Department command ers like the presiding officers of all bodies of men, secret or otherwise, are ihe serv ant a of the body they represent, and it is ill-advised for them to attempt to manu facture a mountain out of a mole hill, as is being done in this controversy between the railroads and a few dead head cranks. Let the railroadB live and they will meet at least half way tho authorized represent atives of all societies and combinations. The national encampment will surely be a glorious success, and every department will be fully represented, notwithstanding the ill-advised kick against the railroads.

The above remark was made by a promi nent scientist to the board of health officer st after examining a drop of Croton, New L'ork, water through the microscope. The water of nearly every city in America is filled with poison. It is caused by decaying matter and animal life. What is the result? A fear ful increase of sickness and death, both among children and grown people. The papers are filled with accounts ofit. Millions upon millions of germs of fever, cholera mor bus and contagion are in every swallow of water. IS But people say: "What can we do, stop drinking?" "No." "Resort to stimulants?" "No. Kill the germs in the water and before they can come into the Body. Three drops of Perry Da via' Pain-Killer poured in to a glass of water before drinking will kill the germs and make the most poisonous water pure and healthy. The best medical talent in the land have asserted this for years, and the experience of every man and woman who has tried it prove it." Travellers through the jungles of India drink the swamp water, even though it is filled with slime and covered with scum, but they invariably purify it by adding Pain Killer. Stanley, the African explorer, never undertakes a journey without a plentiful supply of "Bangilla," as the natives call Pain Killer. If this grand medicine is BO effective in regions where death lurks on every side, where it reeks in every pool, does it not stand to reason that we can safely meet the dangers of our own drinking water by its careful use? It is an absolute cure for cholera morbus in its worst forms, but how much better it is to Sy revont disease than to wait forits approach, keeping this remedy constantly on hand the dangers of the summer can be avoided and health positively preserved. FOUL PLAY. A Novel. BY CHARLES READE AND DION BOCCICABLT. CHAPTER IX—CONTINUED. This was followed by the earnest mutter" ingsoftwo voices. In vain did the listener send his very soul into his ear to hear, He could catch no single word. Yet he could tell, by the very tones of the speakers, that the dialogue was one of mystery and im portance. Here was a situation at once irritating and alarming but there was no help for it. The bprt thing, now, seemed to be to withdraw unobserved, and wait for another opportu nity. He did KO: and he had not long retired, when the mate came out staggering, and Hushed with liquor, and that was a thing that had never occurred before. He left the cabin door open, and went into his own Boom. Soon after sounds issued from the cabin peculiar sounds, something between grunting and snoring. Mr Hazel camo and entered the cabin. There he found the captain of the Troserpine in a position very unfavorable to longevity. His legs were crooked over the seat of his chair, and his head was on the ground. Hie handkerchief was tied around his neck, and the man himsell dead drunk, and purple in the face. Mr. Hazel instantly undid his stock, on which the gallant seaman muttered inarticu lately. He then took his feet off the chair and laid them on the ground, and put the empty bottle under the animal's neck. But he had no sooner done all this, tha he had a serious misgiving. Would not this man's death have been a blessing? Might not his life prove fatal? The thought infuriated him, and he gave the prostate figure a heavy kick that almost turned it over, and the words, "Duty to em ployers," gurgled out of its mouth directly. It really seemed as if these sounds were in dependent of the mind, and resided at the tip of Hudson's tongue: so that a thorough good kick could, at any time, shake them out of his inanimate body. I IUB do things ludicrous and things ter rible minsle in the real world only to those who are in the arena, theludicrous passes un noticed. being overshadowed by its terrible neighbor. And so it was with Hazel. He saw nothing absurd in all this and in that prostrate, in sensibb hog, comnianilinc the ship, forsooth, and carrying all their lives in his hands, he saw the mysterious and alarming only, saw them, so, and felt them, that he lay awake all night thinking what he should do, and early next day he went into tbe mate's cabin, and said to him: "Mr. Wylie, in any other ship 1 should speak to the captain, and not to the mate but here that would be no use, for you are the master, and he is your servant." "Don't tell him so, sir, for he doesn't think small beer of himself." "I shall waste no more words on him. It is to you I speak, and you know I speak the truth. Here is a ship in which for certain reasons known to yourself, the captain is under the mate." "Well, dr," said Wylie, good-humoredly, "it is no use trying to deceive a gentleman like you. Our skipper is anexcellentseaman, but lie has got a fault." 'Then Wylie imita ted, with his hand, the action of a person filling his glass. "And you are here to keep him sober, eh?" Wylie nodded. "Then why do you ply liimavith liquor?" "I don't sir." "You do. I have seen you do it a dozen times and last night you took rum into his room and made him so drunk, he would have died where he lay ill had not loosened his handkerchief." "I am sorry to hear that, sir but he was sober when I left him. The fool must have got to the bottle the moment I was gone." "But that bottle you put in bis way I saw you and what was your object? To deaden his conscience with liquor, his and your own, while you made him your fiendish proposal. Man, man, do you believe in God, and in a judgment to come for deedsdoneinthe body, that you can plan in cold blood to destroy a vessel with nineteen souls on board, be sides the live stock, the innocent animals that God pitied and spared when he raised his hand in wrath over Nineveh of old?" While the clergyman was speaking, with flashing eyes and eommandingvoice, the sea man turned ashy pale and drew his shoul ders together like a cat preparing to defend her life. "I plan to destroy a vessel sir! You never heard me say such a word and don't you hint such a thing in the ship, or you will get yourself into trouble." "That depends on you." "How BO, sir?" "I have long suspected you." "You need not tell me that' sir." "But I have not communicated my suspi cions. And now that they are certainties, I come first to you. Iv one word, will you forego your intention, since it is fofnd out?" "How can I forego what never was in my head?" said Wylie. "Caflt away the ship! Why, there's no land within two thousand miles. Founder a vessel in the Pacific! Do you think my life is not as sweet to me as yours is to you?" Wylie eyed him keenly to see the effect of these words, and, by a puzzled expression that came over his face, saw at once he had assumed a more exact knowledge tliaD he really possessed. Hazel replied that he had said nothing about foundering the sliip but there were many ways "of destroying one. "For in stance," said he, "I know how the Neptune was destroyed—and so doyou how the Rose and the Antelope were cast away—and so do you." At this enumeration, Wjrlie lost his color and self-possession for a moment he saw Hazel had been listening. Hazel followed up his blow. "Promise me now, by all you hold sacred, to forego this villany and 1 hold my tongue. Attempt to defy me, or to throw dust in my eyes, and I go instantly among the crew, and denounce both you and Hud son to them." "Good heavens!" cried Wylie, in unfeigned terror. "Why, the men would mutiny on the spot." "I can't help that," said Hazel, firmly and took a step toward the door. "Stop a bit," said the mate. "Don't bo in such a nation hurry: for, if you do. it will be bad for me, but worse for you." The above was said so gravely, and with such evident sincerity, that Mr. Hazel was struck and showed it. Wylie followed up that trifling advantage. "Sit down a minute, sir, if you please, and listen to me. You never saw a mutiny on board ship, I'll be bound. It is. a worse thing than any gale thp,t ever blew: begiusfair enough sometime*, but how does it end? In breaking into the spirit-room, and drinking to madness, plun dering the ship, ravishing the women, and cutting a throat or so for certain. You don't seem so fond of ijte picture as you was 0/ tbe idea. And then they might turn a deal ear to you after all. Ship is well found in all stores provisions served out freely men in good humor and I have got their ear. And noM I'll tell you why it won't suit your little gdfhe to blacken me to the crew, upon the pug chance of a mutiny." He paused for a moment, then resumed in a lower tone, and revealed himself the extraordinary man he wa£. "Ton see, sir," said he, "when a man ie very ready to suspect me, I always suspect him. Now you was uncommon ready to suspect me. You didn't wait till you came on board you began the game ashore. O, what, that makes you open one eye, does it? You thought I didn't know you again. Knew yon, my man, the moment you came aboard. 1 never forget a face and disguises don't pass on me." It was now Hazel's turn to look nnxious and discomposed. "So, then, the moment I saw you sus pected me 1 was down upon you. Well, you come aboard under false colors. We didn't want a chap like you in the ship but you would come. 'What is the bloke after?' says I, and watches. You was so intent suspect ing me of this, that and t'other, that you un guarded yourself, and that, is common too. I'm blowed if it isn't the lady you are after. With all my heart only she might do better, and I don't see how she could do worse, un less she went to Old Nick for a mate. Now I'll tell you That it is. my man. I've been in trouble myself, and don't want to be hard on a poor devil, just because he sails under an alias, and lies as near the wind as he can, to weather on the beaks and the bobbies. But one good turn deserves another: keep your dirty suspicions to yourself for if you dare to open your lips to the men, in five minutes, or less than that, you shall be in irons, and confined to your cabin and we'll put you ashore at the first port that flies the British flag, and hand you over -to the authorities, till one of her majesty's cruisers sends in a boat for you." At this threat Mr. Hazel hung his head in confusion and dismay. "Come, get out of my cabin, Parson Alias," shouted tho mate "and belay your foul tongue in this ship, and don't make an enemy of Joe Wylie, a man that will eat vou up else, and spit you out again,and nev er brag. Sheer off, 1 say, and be d—d to you." Mr. Hazel, with a pale face and sick heart, looked aghast at this dangerous man, who could b.e fox or tiger, as the occasion de manded. Surprised, alarmed, outwitted, and men aced. he retired with disordered countenance and uneven stops, and hid himself in his own cabin. The more he weighed the whole situation, the more clearly did he see that he was ut terly powerless in the hands of Wylie. A skipper is an emperor and Hudson had the power to iron him. and set him on shore at the nearest port. Tho right to do it was another matter but. even on that head Wyliecould furnish a plausible excuse for the net. Retribution, if it came at. all, would not be severe, and would be three or four years coming: and who fears it much, when it is so dilatory, and so weak, and so doubt ful into the bargain? He succumbed into silence for two days, and then, in spite of Wylie's threat, liemade one timid attempt to approach the subject with Welch and Cooper, but a sailor came up instantly, and sent them forward to reef topsails. And, whenever he tried to enter into conversation with the pair, some sailor or other was sure to come up and listen. Then he saw that hewas spotted or, as we sa.v nowadays, picketed. He was at his wits' end. He tried his last throw. Ho wrote a few lines to Miss Holleston, requesting an inter view. Aware of the difficulties ho had to encounter here, he stilled his heart by main force, and wrote in terms carefully measured. He begged her to believe ho had no design to intrude upon her, without absoluto necessity, and for her own good. Respect for her own wishes forbade this, and also his self-respect. "But," saiil he, "I have made a terrible discovery. The mato and the captain cer tainly intend to cast away this ship. No doubt they will try and not sacrifice their own lives and ours: but risk them they must, in the .very nature of things. Before trou bling you, I have tried all I could, in the way of persuasion and menace but am defeated. So now it rests with you. You, alone, can save us all. I will tell you how, if you will restrain your repugnance, and accord me a short interview. Need 1 say that no other subject shall be introduced by me? In Eng land, should we ever reach it, I may perhaps try to take measures to regain your good opinion but here, 1 am aware, that is im possible and I shall make no attempt in that direction, upon my honor." To this came a prompt and feminine reply: "The ship is bis. Tho captain and the mate are able men, appointed by him. Your suspicious of these poor men are calumnies, and of a piece with your other monstrous slanders. "I really must insist on your holding no further communications of any sort with one to whom your character is revealed and odious. "H. R." This letter benumbed his heart at first. A letter? It was a blow a blow from her he loved and she hated him. His long-suffering love gave wav at last. What folly and cruelty combined!" He could #0 longer make allowances for the spite of a roman whose lover had been traduced. Rage and despair seized him he bit his lils, nails, and tore his hair with fury and prayed Heaven to help him hate her as she deserved, "the blind, insolent idiot!" Yes, these bitter words actually came out of his mouth, in a torrent of fury. But to note down all he said in his rage, would be useless and might mislead, for this was agust offury and, while it lasted, tho long-suffering man was no longer himself. As a proof how little this state of mind was natural to him, it stirred up all thebilein hisbody, and brought on a severe attack of yellow jaundice, ac companied by the settled dejection that marks that disorder. Meantime the Proserpine glided on, with a fair wind, and a contented crew. She was well found in stores and they were served out ungrudgingly. Every face on board beamed with jollity, except poor Hazel's. He crept about, yellow as a guinea a very scarecrow. The surgeon, a humane man, urged him to drink sherry, v0 take strong exercise. But persons aulicted with that distressing malady are obstinately set against those things which tend to cure it thisis a feature of the disease. Mr. Hazel was no exception. And then his heart had received so many blows, it had no power left to resist the de pressing effect of bis disorder. He took no exercise he ate little food. He lay, listless and dejected, about the deck, and let disease do what it pleased with him. The surgeon shook his head, and told Hud eon tlio parson was booked. "And good riddance to bad rubbish!" was that worthy's gracious comment. The ship then encountered an adverse gale, and, for throe whole days, was under close reefed top sails she was always a wet ship under stress.of weather and she took in a good deal of water on this occasion. On the fourth day it fell calm, and Captain Hudson, having examined the well, and found three feet of water, ordered the men to the pumps. After woiking through one watch, the well was sounded again, and the water was so much reduced that the gangs were taken off! and the ship being now becalmed, and the weather lovely, the men were allowed to dance upon the deck to the boatswain's fid dle. While this pastime went on, the sun, large and red, reached the horizon, and diffused a roseate light over the entire ocean. Not one of the current descriptions of heaven approached the actual grandeur and beauty of the blue sky, flecked with ruby and gold, and its liquid mirror that lay below, calm, dimpled, and glorified by that trans lucent, rosy tint. While the eye was yet charmed with this enchanting bridal ot the sea and sky, and the ear amused with tho merry fiddle and the nimble feet, that tapped the sounding deck so deftly at every note, Cooper, who had been sounding the well, ran forward all of a sudden, and flung a thunderbolt in the midst: "A LEAK!" CHAPTER X. The fiddle ended in mid-tune, and the men crowded aft with anxious faces. The captain sounded the well, and found three and a halt feet of water in it. He or dered all honds to the Dumps. .v .1 VSSiki'. They turned to with a good heart, and pumped watch and watch, till daybreak. Their exertions counteracted the leak, but did no more the water in the well was nei ther more nor less, perceptibly. Tbis was a relief to their minds so far but the situation was a very serious one. Sup pose foul whether Bhould come, nnd the ves sel ^Bhip water from above as well! ^ow all those who were not on the pumps set to work to find out the leak and stop it if possible. With candles in their hands, they crept about the ribs of the ship, narrow ly inspecting every corner, and applyingtheir ears to every suspected place, if haply they might hear the water coming in. The place where Hazel had found Wylie at work was examined, along with the rest but neither there nor anywhere else could the leak be discovered, 'iet the water was still coming in. and required unremitting labor to keep it under. It was then suggested b,v Wylie, and the opinion gradually gained grouud, that some of the seams had opened in the lute gale, and were letting in the water bv small but numerous apertures. Faces began to look cloudy nnd Hazel, throwing off hiB lethargy, took his spell at the niain pump with the rest.. When his gang was relieved he went away, bathed in perspiration, and, leaning over the well, sounded it. While thus employed, the mate came be hind him, with his catlike step, and said, )'aee what has come or us with vour forbod mgs! It is the unluckiest thing'in the world to talk about losing a ship when Bhe is at sea." "You are a more dangerous man on board a ship than I am," was Hazel'B prompt re ply. The well now gave an increase of three inches. Mr. Hazel now showel excellent qualities, he worked like a horse and, finding the mato skulking, he reproached him before the men, and, stripping him naked to tho waist, in vited him to do a man's duty. The mate, thus chalenged, complied with a scowl. They labored for their lives, and thequan tity of water they discharged from the ship was astonishing: not .lees than a hundred and ten tons every Lour. They gained upon the leak—on ly two inches but. in the struggle for life this was an im mense victory. It was the turn of the tide. A slight breeze sprung up from the south west, and the captain ordered the men from the buckets to make all sail on tho ship, the pumps still going. When this was done, he altered the ship's course, and put her right before the wind, steering for the island of Juan Fernandez, distant eleven hundred miles, or thereabouts. Probably it was the best thing he could do, in that awful waBte of water. But its effect oil the seamen was bad. It was like giving ill. They got a little disheartened and flur ried and the cold, passionless water seized the advantage. It is possible, too, that the motion of the ship through the sea aided the leak. Tho Proserpine glided through the water all night, liko some terror-stricken creature, and the inccssant pumps seemed to be her poor heart, beating loud with breathless fear. At daybreak she had gone a hundred and twenty miles. But this was balanced by a Hew and alarming feature. The water from the pumps no longer came up pure, but mix ed with what appeured to bo blood. This got redder and redder, and struck terror Into tho more superstitious of the creur. Even Cooper, whose heart was stout, lean ed over tho liluwarks, and eyed the red stream, gushing into tho sea from the lee scuppers, nnd said aloud, "Ay, bleed to death, ye bitch. We slia'n't be long behind ye." Hazel inquired, and found the ship had a quantity of dye-wood amonst her cargo he told the men this, and tried to keep up their hearts by his words and his example. He succeeded with some but others shook their heads. And by and by, even while he was working double tides for them as well as for himself, ominous murmurs met his ear. "Parson aboard!" "Man aboard, with t'other world in his face!" And there were sinister glances to match. He told this, with some alarm, to Welch and Cooper. Thoy promised to stand by him and Welch told him it was all the mate's doings: he had gone amongst the men, and poisoned them. The wounded vessel, with her ever-beating heart, had run three hundred miles on the new track. She had almost ceased to bleed but what was as bad, or worse, small frag ments of her cargo and stores came up with the water, and their miscellaneous char acter showed how deeply tho sea had now penetrated. This, and their great fatigue, began to de moralize the sailors. The pumps and buckets wore still plied, but it was no longer with the uniform manner of brave and hopeful men. Some stuck doggedly to their work, but oth ers got flurried, and ran from one thing to another. Now and then a man would stop, and burst out crying then to work again in a desperate way. One or two lost heart al together, and had to be driven. Finally, one or two succumbed under the unremitting la bor. Despaircrept over others their features began to change, so much so that several countenances were hardly recognizable, and each, looking in the other's troubled face, saw his own fate pictured there. Six feet water in tho hold! The captain, who had been sober beyond his time, now got dead drunk. The mate took the command. On hear ing this, Welch and Cooper left the pumps. Wylie Ordered them back. They refused, and coolly lighted their pipes. A violent al tercation took place, which was brought to a close by Welch. "It is no use pumping the ship," said he. "She is doomed. Do ye think we are blind, my mate and me? You got the long-boat ready for yourself before ever the leak was sprung. Now get the cutter ready for my mate and me." At these simple words Wylie lost color, and walked aft without a word. Next day there were seven feet water in the hold and quantities of bread coming up through the pumps. Wylie ordered the men from the pumps to tho boats. The jolly boat was provisioned and lowered. Whileshe was towing astern, the cutter was prepared, and the ship left to fill. All this time Miss Rolleston had been kept in the dark, not aB to the danger, but as to its extent. Great was her surprise when Mr. Hazel entered her cabin, and cast an ineffa ble look of pity on her. "She looked up surprised and then angry. "How dare you?" she began. He waved his hand in a sorrowful but com mandingway, "O, this is no time for preju dice or temper. The ship is sinking we are going into the boats. Pray make prepara tions. Hero is a list I have written of the things you ought to take we may be \yeeks at sea in an open boat. Then seeing her dumbfoundered, hecaught up her carpet-bag, and threw her work-box into it for a beginning. He then laid hands upon some of her preserved meats and mar malade, and carried them off to his own cabin. His mind then flew back to his reading, and passed in rapid review all the wants that men had endured in open boats. He got hold of Welch, and told him to be Bure and see there was plenty of spare can vass on board, and sailing-needles, scissors, etc. also three bags of biscuit, and above all, a cask of water. He himself ran all about the ship, including the mate's cabin, in search of certain tools he thought would be wanted. Then to his own cabin, to fill his carpet bag.

Wad-El Jumi, the dervish leader, was kilted. The dervish loss was 1,500 killed and wounded. Th-s Egyptian loss was Blight. Besides Wad-El-Jumi, the slain on the dervish side includes twelve emirs, and nearly all the lighting men. Fifty stan dards were captured by the Egyp tians. Gen. Greniell marched out of Toski at 5 o'clock thiB morning with a strong reconnoiterine force of cavalry and camelry, and advanced close to the dervish camp. Making a feint of retrent ing, he drew the whole ol AVad-El-Jumi's forces to a point within four miles of Tos ki. Here the Egyptian iniantry was held in readiness for an attack, pod a generitl action was at once Begun. The dervishes made a gallant defense, but were driven from hill to hill. The Egyptian cavalry made a succession of effective charges, in which Wad-El-Jumi and the emirs were illed. After seven hours of hard fight ing the dervishes were completely routed. Gunboats were following the scatter ed remnants of the dervish force along the river. Later particulars esti mate the dervish dead roughly at 1.500. The dervishes fought desperately, throw ing themselves upon the advancing col umns repeatedly and refusing quarter. The crisis of the battle wns readied when the dervishes attempted to turn the ex treme right of the Egyptians. The steadi ness of the troops was admirable. The cavalry here swept through the lines of the enomy, breaking them up. No prisoners are yet reported to have been taken. The cavalry pursued the retreating renels for miles. Gen. Grenfell ordered tbe gunboats to pick up fugitives and wounded. Riotous Strikers.
