Bevonteen yean ago I lived with my
father and mothor on the banks of the
Strarujor rlvor. In Atchison county, Kan
sas. I wss only 7 yoors of age, and one
day my you thful fancy was oanght by
the pretty colors. of a blaoksnaike. I
pnlled a sinnll ring off my flngnr and a
string out of my pocket. Placing the
ring over the houd of the snake, I started
home In triumph, drugging the snake at
my heols, and fueling as much a con
queror as the Hoinan emp. ror who
dragged the captives behind hlsohar
iots. In climbing over a fonoe my cap
ova made its escape. Ring, string,
I shed a few tears at the lime, but had
forgotten the matter until lately. I re
turned to the vicinity of my old home
in Atchison county for the purpose of
baying some sheep. While crossing a
small crock that flows into the Stranger
river my attention was called by the
barking of my dog to a strange some
thing in a tree. I investigated and
found there an immense blocksnake,
fully ten feet long. Between the dog
nnd myself we succeeded in killing the
snake, though I was obliged to use in
the wnrfiii-o both a club and a revolver.
The dog finished the snake by giving it
a shaking and tearing it in pieces.
You will hardly believe me, I know,
but you can havo my hind if it wusn i
the same idonticul snake that got away
from me seventeen years ago. How do
I know? Simple enough, Thut little
bhicksnuko hud grown to bo a monstrous
big onei the little silver ring around its
neck hnd grown until it was as large
a ludy's bracelet, und' thu piece of twine
had grown until it hnd become a good
sized rope, lint the straiiifcst part of all
was thnt thu dog hud shiilccn out seven
teen littlo bluckHiiul.-os, und Hint each out
was the exact counterpart of the snakt
thnt made its escape from me In the long
ago, while around thu necks of each ol
the seventeen young ones wure silver
rings, and attached to these rings were
short pieces of twino. And upon each
ono of tlo silver rings you could plain
ly distinguish tho initials of my name,
Just as they had been stamped in tho si)
ver ring thut I wore when 7 years old.

she glories iu imagining the triumphant
way in which (under mure auspicious
circumstances) she would turn upon hor

The vexations and annoyance she is
usually able to describe with spirit and
accuracy. The triumph, being the rep
resentation of her own delicious dreams,
is apt to be a little too spectaculnr; it Is
too complete! rivals and enemies are too
effectually ortuihed; the world looks on

vehemence: the underrated im.rtyr of the

dred years ngo that I was in command
of the Frvuuii mau-of-wur Belli, anil my
mission ou thu high sens was to look nut
for and ciipiuro African slave traders.
One iiiisnilight night as we were plow

take any of them up. In a short time
we were bonded tor tne strange sun, auu
it wasn't long until from the quarter
deck I could see her plainly.
"The Binoko stuck of the Beln became
red hot, uud one of them melted to the
decks, but I called for water, and the
ship was saved from destruction. We
did not lesson our speed for a little thing
like that, but continued to split the
ocean open. Boon along, sinuous block
smoke ascended high above tho masts of
the ohase. Then I know what we were
after. Hastily bcutiug the men to quar

there was fun ahead. The vessel 800
miles ahead of us was a elavo dhow, and

and France as a matter of course, we
must capture her. 'And when we do,'
sal's I, 'you fullers know your business.
For two duyB and nights we chased the
strange craft, and during thut time I did
not sleep a wink or eut a mouthful of
food, I was so excited. At six bulls ou
the third day wo wero in shooting range
and I ordered the ten ton rifle cannon to
be fired. The eighty ton shell fell ahead
of the slaver nearly two miles.
"The effect on the water was torrifV..

hole that you could put the statu house,

and Union station into all at one and the
same time that is, uf course, if you had
them there. Tho slave ship plunged
Bgninst, at and into this wall, and then
came a mighty crash a crush that was
caused, as I afterward learned, by an
Island sixty mlWdlstant being washed
from its base by the waves. The ship
penetrating tlui wall caused it to break
and the upheaved water fell in torrents,
while the slaver teetered on the brink of
the huge abyss for a moment and then

upon her burled nor from Bight forever.

found. Two rears after we picked np on

the lost ship. According to the book the
