looks to the higher branch of congress
for disniSod and courageous action on
any subject that may come before it.
The supposition Is that the enemies of
Lorimor are distrustful of the resuh
of a vote, and htnee they are killing
time to prevent a vote.
Without saying w nether or not a
case has been made against the junior
Illinois senator, or without presuppos
ing what may be the attitude of the
body which is to pass upon the right
eousness of his claim to membership,
the senate 'thould act. It should ncn
procrastinate; it should not evade the j
solemn responsibility that has ben
laid upon its shoulder, not only in i ""fr ? fZ j.T ifTTi

the last to prevent that body from
voicing itself as to the merits of those
charges. If the conviction was well
established that Lorimer would be
ousted on the strength of a vote, can
you imagine a bigger howl than would
have gone over all this land by those
who are seeking to disqualify him?
And it would be a justifiable protest.
The thing to 'do, rather. Is to force
the senate to action. Let the people
know how It stands, for what the peo
ple are Interested in is a principle.
They are sincerely Interested in
a principle and a practice, and
they are not interested in the
personal enemies of Mr. Lorimer.
Let the senate 'put itself on record
one way or the other. Acts instead of
words are wanted at the present stage
of the proceedings in the Lorimer case.
A yaor Prelate.
The inventory filed in the estate of
the late Archbishop Ryan of Phila
delphia shows him to have died pos
sessed of a mere $4,031. That he
had no more is not because he was a
man of wasteful personal habits, for
his personal wants were few and eas
ily supplied; nor because he got little
money, for big sums reached his
hands. He was a generous giver. In
1903, a year which commemorated
the close of a half-century of his
work as a priest, admirers contri
buted to a purse of $120,000 and
presented it to him. Not a penny of
this money clung to his hands, but
wag given away, the whole of it, in
a lump sum, for the construction and
equipment of an orphan asylum. Un
til the time of his death the institu
tion benefited from frequent contrl-
Dutions made towards its maintain
ence by the archbishop.
It is good to be able to chronicle
such facts as these of a ministpr nf

or a great church as engaged in the
work of Christ. There is nothing in

into the hollow between two rollers, he
rode with ail haste toward the wagon
till he knev by the loud cracking of
rifles that those firing were near by on
the other side of one of the rollers.

skins being widely scattered with a
"lew to preventing their enemies con
centrating their fire and that they
might take the party on the flanks as
well as the center.
That the whites had sufficient arms
was evident from the fact that every
one of them, including the two women,
held a breechloadlng rifle, a compara
tively new gun in those days. He who
was evidently the father of the fam
ily was giving bis little army orders as
to the direction of their fire so that it
wonld be properly distributed. They
were dong their best to pick off the
redskins, but the latter were so wary
in exposing themselves that It was dif
ficult to hit them.
Ruckers returned to his horse, un
booked bis rifle and, removing all the
ammunition he bad in his saddlebags,
placed it In his hat. Besides this am
munition, his belt was full of car
tridges. Taking his load up to the
--Mit. he shoved the muzzle of his gun
out between the cactus and was ready
to commence operations.
Meanwhile the Indians had changed
their tactics. They were concentrat
ing on their center preparatory to
charging the wagon. It was plain to
the whites that they were lost. In a
quick dash of the Indians soma of
them might be killed or disabled, but
there would be plenty left to toma
hawk their enemies. The father's
voice trembled as he said;
"Let us die hard."
P.nt at that moment a surprise oc-c-'d
to both whites and redskins.
The former beard a crack behind
them, and the latter saw a puff of
smoke on the crest. One of the In
dians fell dead. Ruckers Instead of
firing again from the same spot scram
bled to a point a few yards to tris
right and from there sent another bul
let. Without waiting to see what dam
age he bad done be moved and fired
The Indians paused In their advance.
Ruckers had produced already the im
pression that there were at least sev
eral persons on the crest, and since be
kept up a fire from different points it
was impossible for the savages to tell
how many there were in tbis re-enforcement.
Equally Interested in Ruckers were
the party directly beneath him. They
were casting quick glances over their
ehoolders. hoping to see a party of
armed whites come over the crest to
their assistance. But when Ruckers
called to them to keep up their fire,
that be was alone, there was disap
pointment. Ent there was hope. The
father, seeing the advantage of Ruck
ers strategy, encouraged his family, at
the same time admonishing tbem not
to fire except at an especial redskin.
But by this time the Indians had be
taken themselves behind a alight rise
in the ground, where they remained
fX . Tbey bad evjdentr j
withdrawn for consultation or with a
view to getting the strength of their
new enemy. Ruckers and the whites
below also ceased to fire since they
could do no damage. Ruckers called
to their commander, suggesting that it
might be well to direct one of the
party to crawl through the cactus to
the crest; that by firing from different
points at the same time the two above
might further make it appear that
there were not more than one person
It appeared to the father that who
ever succeeded in separating himself
from the party might have a better
chance for bis life. snd. desiring to
give this advantage to his daughter,
he directed her to do as Ruckers had
suggested. The redskins detected her
and sent a shot at her which raised the
dust only a foot from her, but she suc
ceeded in ber attempt
When Ruckers saw an attractive girl
who bad come to fight with him for
ber life and the lives of all concerned
a new resolve came to him that they
should win. There was an eager light
in the girl's eye as she asked what she
should do. Ruckers, who since she
bad been fired at in Joining him had
lost confidence in bis ruse, told her to
lie flat beside him and wait for orders.
The Indians appeared again, scatter
ing at first in order to distract the
whites, then suddenly making on con
verging lines for the wagon. Ruckers
called to those behind It to aim at the
savages nearest the center, told the
girl beside him to fire at those on the
Indians' right, while he would cover
the left and any such individuals as
be thought it an advantage to put out
of the fight.
This dividing np the enemy between
tbem proved to be very effective. The
savages had not covered half the dis
tance between their starting point and
the wagon when a doz.en of their war
riors bad been dropped. They hesitat
ed, broke and scurried for cover.
Tlfbre was a shout, and a dozen cow
boys came galloping toward the
Ruckers turned and looked at the
girl beside him; she turned and looked
at him. There are moments when our
emotions sweep away conventionality.
These two had met for the first time
balf an hour Before. Death had then
stored them in the face. Now all were
safe. Yielding to an Impulse that
seized upon loth at once, they threw
their arms about each other's neck,
and the man covered the girl's face
Ruckers had rot been on the crest
en hour, but he had been there long
enough to save the lives of the family.
When his first shot cracked the sav
ages were about to make a charge that
would have been successful. Lie had
stood them off Just long enough for
the cowboys to come iu and make the

boys threw up an earthwork in a circle
about the wagon and the stock, and
pickets were put out for the night, but
morning dawned without an attack,
and not a redskin was te be seen.
Then under a sufficient guard be fam
ily who had so narrowly escaped death
The adventure brought a great
change to Jim Ruckers. For him and
for the girl he loved it stood in lieu of
a long courtship. When Jim told her
he wished her to be his wife she could
not well say him nay, for had It net
been for blm she would not have had
a life to give any one. The family
stopped at a settlement, entered land
and built a home. Jim stopped, too,
and never moved on. He bad found an
