The scare was ovpr when Deserter Harrlgan reappeared.

Which Was rrnjectetf hy Hear? t.lsr The most remarkable highway built It t lie I'uitcd Slates early In the nine teenth century was tha so called Cum berland road, which was to extend I. .mi Cumberland, Md., through south western Pennsylvania, over the Alle ghany mounta. us to the Ohio at Wheel ing, W. Va., nnd then on to Kt. Louis. It was so well constructed that It Is a good r"iid today. Henry Clay was Its pto.leetor and chief stipportir. and bis services in Its behalf are eommomoist td by a monument near Wbt cling. We lire f id by letters written at that pe riod that "there were sometimes twen ty gayly painted four horse coach" each way daily. The cattle and sheep were neer out of sight, and canvas covered wagons were druwn by six to twelve horses." On this great road, which eventually passed Into the bunds of tbe states through which it runs, the government expended no less a sum tbnn fT.UCO.OOU. Within a mile of It on either side tbe country was a wilderness, but on the highway Itself the iratlie was us dense ss in the main street of a large town. Ten miles an hour wus the usual speed for coaches. Krom Baltimore to Wheel ing ran lines of freight wugons. which curried ten tons, druwn by twelve horses and with wheels ten feet In dl nuicter.

One night when the vigilance of the entínela was lux he "UanUed" his way' out of tbe guardhouse and escaped the guard sent after blm. His crow was tot to be seen or heard of next morn ing, and after tbe fugitive had teen tracked up Plum valley for twenty miles tbe trail was lost Private Har rlgan waa posted as a deserter and the asnal rewund offered, and Company B congratulated Itself on being rid of a po account. There bud been peace with the Indi ans for a year, but two weeks after Harrlgao's desertion disquieting- re ports began to come In. Bands of bucks were breaking away from the reserva tions every day lo Join tbe renegades Id tbe mountains, and as tbey cut cross the country tbey murdered lone ettlers and played havoc with ranch houses The troops at tbe fort were under arms and reudy to ride at a mo ment's notice, but tbe reports were so conflicting tbat the oOlcers were per plexed. The hostile seemed to be moving on every aide. There were only B and C companies. wltb eighty men to a company, to bold flip fort, gourd the stuge routes and prote1 the settlers for twenty miles round, anil the best that the colonel rould no was little enough. It was when tbe bostlles bad worked clear round lo the west and were menacing fifty pioneer families m-aitered up nnd down Hum valley that he determined I most to strip tbe fort of Its garrison ami1 make a swift dnsli. This deterral ustión waa hastened by a written mes sage brooght lu by o half breed from -on of tbe pioneers, who pointed out flip way to strike the hostiles a dcttlb- fclow hile they were unprepared.

The drum or tympanum of the eat is a small air chamber, with hard, bony surroundings, ventilated by an air pas sage about one and a half Inches long, called the eustachian tube, which pass es f. rward and inward from the nine rior part of the throat behind the nos trils. The atmospheric pressure rehuir ed on the Inner side of the drum lo counterbalance that of the outer side ,s provided for by the communication ot tbe eustachian tube with the throat in the acts of breathing and swallowing. Lining the h How of the drum and forming the Innermost layer of the drumhead Is a delicate mucous mem bra lie. which also lines the Interior of the. eustachian tube. If we have a com In the head, the vessels supplying the mucous membrane from the nose to the mouth expand, the bl-xid wKhiu them flows slowly or stagnates and that in the mucous membrane becomes ecu gested. As a resr.lt there Is more r ley swelling, with augmentation of the nut ural secretions. The congestion Is a pi to be continued Into the mucous nieto braue of the eustachian tube, which is thus obstructed. This causes the air ie the drum to be rarefied, tlie drumhead and the little chain of hones i onm-etrii with It ure forced inward, and by cans Ing excess of pressure of the internal ear pruduccs deafness. In Norway and Sweden a curious mi gration takes place, the Irregular mi gration of the lemming. There Is no telling where this strange animal will begin its mnreh. southward through Norway and Sweden in search of food. The Interval between one migration and the next Is seldom less than seven years or. as In one instance, more than seventeen years. The lemming Is a species of rodent and resembles in some ways our com mon water rut. Once started, these si range creatures press on in a straight line. There Is no checking their march. If a wall or a bouse is in their way, they will try to climb it rather than go around It, nnd If they come to a stack of corn they will eat it and then go for ward. The lemmings are good swim mers, iiixl so they do not mind rivers end ponds, although tbey cannot keep afloat In rough water. The migriiiion comes to a fatsl finish. Taking a direct course toward the Bouthwest and southeast, tbe animala arrive after awhile at the seashore. Still tbey must press on. and tbe km- miii? migration ends for another seven years. Too Familiar. It was the 0 o'clock rush hour, nnd the Sixth avenue elevated station at One Hundred nnd Sixteenth street wus packed with an Impatient crowd trying to escape to their homes. lu the thick of it was a cloaked fig ure, apparently that of a plump little girl of eleven or twelve. She was hav ing a hard struggle In the crush, and a big. good nutured man behind her Just put ids bunds on her shoulders to belp her along. "Sir!" piped a shrill but Quite ma ture voice as she turned so violently that she created un eddy In the crowd ami turned upon the big fellow a puir of snapping black eyes. "Oi sar's ghost!
