I Aoranam JLmcoln and a brother of his A Female Desperado. In Caldwell 'county, Ky., there lived on the bottoms of the TraTlewater river two families destined to most terrible ends the Campbells. Reilly, J. B., and Bud; and the Sullivans, Tom and his sister Mary. They They were considered neither better nor worse than those about them. "They were ignorant and rather shiftless, but so were many otheis in the neighborhood. Soon, however, the country people round about began to say stranjre tinners of the girl, Mary Sullivan. She was a bright, quick girl of 20, with light hair, light blue eyes, and a little above the medium in height. Nft man for miles could out lift her. Wif!s trun or pistol she was a dead shot. On horseback there wasn't a boy in the county who could ride faster over rougher country, or who dared to commit half the dare-devil pranks that Mary constantly delighted in. She rode a horse like a man. Mary had lost all sense of girlish delicacy. The effect of all this in a quiet country neighborhood can hardly be imagined. Mary Sulli van's nam9 became the by-word for all that was infamous, and the staid country matrons lulled their babies to sleep with btories oi ine nornble Mary and her midnight rides and crimes. Then ru mor turned to other things. Mary was seen often with the Campbell boys, and once or twice she was seen with them and her brother late at night, dashing at her usual breakneck speed over the country roads. About this timi the most daring rob beries began to be committed in the northern end of the county. Farmers found their smoke-houses open night after night. Several stores were broken into and robbed, and, strange to say, no uue hubw wuo commuted tne crime. One old farmer began to talk very freely saying he recognized Mary Sullivan at the head of the Campbells breaking into his smoke-house. A day or so afterward this time, but to make a anra Hinr nf it At a dead gallop they rushed up to the house, and iu an Instant it was sur rounded. THE FOBTT MEN Sat on their horses like statues, and each man with a shotgun in his hand, the hammer raised, finger on trigger, ready for work. In the house was a family named McMurtry, an old man and some small children. The only other inmates were Reilly Campbell "and his brother Bud. The leader of the mob called out to the McMurtrys to leave the house, which they instantly did. standing m-if in the woods shivering and waiting fo what horror they hardly knew. Pre parations were instantly made by the two men in tha homa tnr fltrfct n . death. Quarter was neither asked nor given. The mcb opened fire and the Campbells answered them. Then the firing came fierce and fast. Balls rattled against the walls of the old log cabin like hail. The two men onene.1 litl port-holes and answered as best they could. A groan and muttered curse came from the outside, and a little group hurried a man off in their arms. It was Hice Johnson, a well to-do respect able farmer. He had a ball through his uxettBfc, bbu oiea to deatn out on the road Keeploff Up WUH Folltlcs. The otner night, just after the polls had closed and sealed the political fate of more than one candidate whose chance a few days before had been so bright worn-out looking tramp entered a saloon where a hilarious party of men were drinking and dropping his bundle near the wall he approached the bar and asked of a man who seeaied to be master of liquid ceremonies: "Say, who's elected?'? ' """"""i oioiaimea tne man. lhe tramp had just arrived in the city and knew nothing of Arkansaw politics, but he grasped the hand of the master of Iiq uid ceremonies an d yelled : : .

"Bliokshire." s "Well, by Georare. We '11 naira in t.Va another drink on thatj Blickshire, by JruT 6 of tho 8ame. f yu Please."

They consisted wholly of rough and dressed lumber, shingles, laths, pickets and spars. Reducing all to rongh lnm ber , the equivalent of these cargoes may be given at about 9,500,000 feet. Seldom or never before were the shipments to foreign ports so great. Four of these cargoes went from Port Blakeley mill, five from Utsalady, three from Tacomaj one from Port Discovery, two from Port Gamble. One cargo was destined for New Zealand, two for Australia, one for Mexico, three for China, five for the Hawaiian islands and three for Chini. In the lumber trade of Bnrrard inlet, B C, during the month five vessels entered and five cleared, the latter taking about 2,500,000 feet of lumber valued at abdut 833,000. The coal exports from this port aggregate 11,906 tons in October, all going to California. From the Benton mine 1 01 tons were shipped, from th Seattle, 10,205. The trial of A. C. Soteldo, charged with the murder of his brother, A. M. Soteldo, in Washington, was resumed before Jndge Wylie on the 1st. Frank B. Conger, business manager of the Repub lican, certified to Soteldo's assault on Barton, during which A. M. Soteldo was fatally wounded by his brother, who fired with murderous intent at Barton, but missed his man. Witness told the storv of the visit of the Soteldo brothers to Barton'b office on the night of the tragedy. A. M. Soteldo presented Barton with a manuscript, which he looked at casually uu men reiuaea 10 accept, telling Sot eldo to give it to Gorbam. Soteldo then sprang upon Barton and a seufHe ensued, in which the lamp was knocked over. Witness picked it up from the floor and then started out of the door vith it. As he passed through the door he saw Sot eldo standing at one end of the desk with a revolver in his extended hand. He passed rapidly through the outer room, hearing a pistol shot as he did so, ran down the stairs and called for a police man.- Hearing cries from above witness started to return when Barton and the defendant came tumbling down the stairs. On the sidewalk Barton told witness he had a ball in hia head, which was covered with blood. He also said he was shot in side and was too weak to proceed. Wit ness started to retire with Barton to the office and met A. C. Soteldo at the door. He was struggling with several parties trying to escape. Barton held a pistol in his right hand as he and Soteldo Hy at the foot of tbe stairs. It was a dark and rusty weapon. On cross-examination witness said that at no time did he see a weapon in lhe hands of A. M. Soteldo. He could see when he left the room whether or not Barton and A. M. Soteldo had a weapon in their hands. He was not positive' as to the number of shots fired, but believed it was four. Dr. Bliss de scribed the naturo of the wounds of A. M.

Dick Little, for conspiracy connected with the robbery at Mussel Shoals, Ala , Aug. 10, 1881, waa found guiltv on the 2d. Little proved he was in Kentucky at the time of the robbery, which he says was committed by Frank or Jesse James and Bill Ryan, who were hiding from the officers. He admitted that he at other timea and pUces ran and robbed with the gang. The verdict is a peculiar one. It rt cited a belief in accordance with what Little testified, but says he is guilty of conspiracy nevertheless. The court suspended sentence and fixed. $1500 as bond for the prisoner's appearance next term. This action is said to be taken because he is a valuable witness in sev eral other cases against the James gang, and may also be needed at HuUville to testify against Frank James, should the latter be put on trial for the Mussel Shoals robbery. Jmakx galloped xtp to his house, Called him out and asked him what he meant by saying what he did. "Did you see me and the Campbells at your smoke house?" asked she, at the same time pull ing a big navy revolver and shoving it under his nose. The old man stammered out an apology, and was never afterward heard to say a word against the Camp balls. Among the most bitter denonn cars of the gang was an old man named Felkers, who lived a few miles away from them on the Trade water. One night, just three years ago, two men, afterward discovered to be Tom Sullivan and Reilly Campbell, rode up to old man Felkers', took him and his old wife out and beat them severely. They then rode off. This affair caused the most in tense excitement. A mob was hurriedly organized and some forty men rode over to the Campbells. Mary Sullivan had in sume way heard that they were com -ing several hours beforehand. She and her brother Tom went over to the little log hut of the Campbells and barricaded themselves. When the mob came up they demanded the instant surrender of the whole gang. Mary yelled out taunt ingly: "Gome and get us. vou cowardlv dogs!" Fire was opened by the mob, and the Campbellsand Sullivans prompt ly returned it. After a little the bo sieged made it so hot for the mob that it bad to retire. The only man hurt in the melee was Tom Sullivan, who was shot in the breast, but who soon recovered. The gang became more bold after this, and robberies became more frequent. At this time an event happened which was destined to cause the entire destruc tion of the band. Mary Sullivan met Crockett Jenkins. The meeting itself was romantic enough to merit its being told. Mary was riding along the Trade water one spring day two years ago, when she saw a man on the other side preparing to come over. The water was deep, the little river had been raised by frequent rains, and she: yelled over to him not to attempt to cross there. He either did not hear her or paid no atten tion, for he plunged his home in. The current was too strong for the horse, and he soon threw his rider off and tried to save himself. Then, with his heavy win tor clothes on, Jenkins would most cer tainly have been drowned but for Mary's dashing into the stream with her horse and rescuing him at THE PERIL OP HER LIFX. She brought the man up to her brother Tom's to let him dry his clothes. A mu tual admiration soon sprung up, which quickly warmed into love. From that time on Mary Sullivan and Crockett Jenkins were warm lovers. Jenkins who lived some miles away, moved over to Sullivan's, and the Jove of the two was the talk of the oounty. From that time on the gang had no more faithful follow er than Crockett Jenkins. About a month ago, however, Crockett tired of Mary, ard began payiDg his attentions to another woman. For some time Mary was ignorant of what was going on, but when she beard of it her jealous hate was terrible. "I will kill Crockett Jen- aina ii he dares to betray me. she said to more than one. One night about a month ago, Mary accused Crockett of his infidelity. He laughed at her. She was too excited to get her pistol, but sprang at his throat. A struggle followed, and Mary would have strangled him then and there but for interference. Crockett left the house. Some time before this the band moved up from Tradewater Bottom and hired a little grocery some four miles away on a public road leading to Princeton. A day cr 6o after the fuss between Mary and Crockett, a crowd of men from Princeton were riding by the little grocery, all drinking quite freely, when one of the men in a moment of recklessness fired off his pietol. The Campbells, thinking the mob was again on them, rushed out of the grocerv and began tiring. The men returned the shots and galloped back into town. This created another tempest of excitement, and the next day a mob was got together to'exterminate the Campbells. The rob bing had continued without interniission and did much to inflame the people. The next night forty men armed to the teeth, with masks on their faces and hatred in their hearts, swept down tho road toward the little log cabin where the Campbells kept their grocery. The loaders were picked men, and were followed bv somo ui tue most desperate men m the county. It was resolved to do no half way work came from within, and Reilly Campbell fell in a pool of blood at his brother's feet a corpse. But Bud stood to his guns, doggedly firing away into the night whenever he saw the flash of an enemy's gun. How long this wild war fare might have lasted no man knows. But But's ammunition gave ont anA hia shots became less frequent. The mob closed in on him. Thirty-nine to one surely it was madness to resist longer. Bud did resist, however, and barricading doors and windows, he stood ready with a, clubbed gun in his hand to defend his life to the last. Suddenly he began to smell smoke about him. There was smoke around him, and it seemed issuing from everywhere. There was an omin ous crackle in the air, the sound of fire eating away at dried wood. Then he knew the horror of his fate. The mob had fired the cabin. Thirty-nine men stood ranged around, just outside, with levelled guns, waiting for him. Death by fire within, death by bullet without, which would he choose? The smoke be came denser; he could hardly grope aiuuuu tuo room, ine oiaze was leaping up around him like a mad wolf. The roof was a mass of fire. Then the door was burst open, and out of the fire and the blinding smoke that man could not breathe and live, out of this. VERY. MOUTH OF HELL. Staggered a man with singed clothes and grimy face and bleared eyes, clinging to the end of a gun. Twenty pistols were leveled at him, but he fell before the hands that were so anxious to pull tbe triggers could movej A dozn men garnered about him, bound him hand and foot, and, dazed and half dead as he was, dragged him down into the woods. A rope was quickly brought, and as the smoke of the burning cabin floated through the trees it touched and moved the dangling body of Bud Campbell. A night or so later, some men return ing from a visit to a neighbor's, thought they heard a man's voice pleading with someone for mercy. They were not positive, but thonght the one addressed was called "Mary." The next day the lifeless body of Crockett .Tflnki found swinging from the limb of a great oak at the top of a tall hill. The moral proof that Mary Sullivan committed the crime, assisted by her mother and sister, seems to be conclusive; but there was no Eositive proof. And so when Mary and er mother- and sister were arrested, nothing could be done to them. They were all discharged, and when Mary went back home she found death's-head notices glaring at her, warning her to leave the neighborhood. All the rest of her friends were either dead or wounded or had left. Bud Campbell was dead; Reilly Campbell was dead; Crockett Jenkins was dead; her brother Tom had gone away to recover from his wound, which had begun to trouble him again; uor uiumer nu sister naa ned; she was an outcast and alone. But in spite of all this the woman's indomitable courage never failed her. She went off to make arrangements about selling some cows, primed and oiled ber pistols, and then wrote defiant notes to her enemies. On the 29th of September she rode over to farmer Hubbell's and asked for lodging for the night. She had her little three year old child with her. About ten o'clock uuwtjcn, j "Snackles? Well, by the deuce. Oh, but we ve got 'em, We'll have to drink on nis aeieat. Home of the same." He slapped the leader and struck tbe bar with political enthusiasm. "Let me see " he exclaimed, "what was what's the ma jority conceded to to er, what was the majority?" "Of Nedson?" "Job; what was Nedson's majority?" em. Well "By George, we've got uave to arm on that." ; "On what?" exclaimed the master of liquid ceremonies. "On Nedson's majority." "Why you blamed fool, he was on the other side." V?on "afaanderstand me. I mean that u nis majority is no more than 200 we can afford to drink." ; "Wheie do you live?" asked the mas ter, j "Now listen to that. Ask an old citi zen where he lives! That's too bad. We will have to drink on that." "Hold on. Don't be so rash. Are vou a Democrat or Republican?" "Now I know we'll have to drink." "Get out of here," and the master kicked the tramp over his bundle and tnen meted him out of the house. When the tramp met his companion a few moments afterwards he asked: "What's luck?" ; "None. I struck a prayer meeting. Did you do anything?" "I never fail. I struck a crowd of my constituents and lushed. A man never looses anything by keeping up with the Tohties of the country." Arkansaw Traveler. i Wasn't In. A VOICE CALLED Her to the door. Her usual prudence seems to have deserted her. She did not even take her pistol, which for five years had never left her hand day or night. t She reached the door, opened it and peered out The night was dark and windy. Heavy, rainy clouds hid everything, and she failed to see the five men with pistols in their hands, stand- ing witnin a few feet of her. She opened the door and stepped ont. Three strong pairs of arms reached out from ! the darkness, and in an instant she was whirled away out to the public road. I She knew what fate lay in store for her, but uttered neither threats nor entreaty. She said never a word, but walked along j quieuy wnn ner captors. They bound her arms and feet, and, tossing her over a horse as though she were a meal sack, they joined the mob which was waiting for them on the road. They rode on till Mary recognized with a thrill of horror that they were approaching the dace where Jenkins was hanged. They halted under the very tree, and the" leader, making a rope from behind it, solemnly fastened the noose about : the woman's neck. She never flinched.

The occupant of an office on Congress street wett, fixed matters one day this week in such a shape that any caller had to run the gauntlet of a boy in the ante room, and as he retired into his den-beyond, he said to the youth: . "Now, young man look me in the eye." "fes, sir." "And remember what I say." "Yes. sir." - "It any person calls and asks if I am in, you must say you don t know. You will then ask their business. If they say it is a financial matter you must come in here, stop a minute, and return and say I am out of town to take baths for my rheumatism." "Yes, sir." It was hardly an hour before a stran ger came up, and when asked his busi ness, he replied: "Well, I called on a little errand in volving some money." That was the cue for the boy. He re heated to the back room, winked at bis employer, and returned to the ante-room and reported: "He has just left for the oouatrv on a vacation." . j 7 "Then I'll leave a note," said the man, and he sat down, wrote a few lined, and took his departure. When he had been gone ten minutes the employer came out to read it. It read: " "Called to pay you that $90 but you were out. Am off for Tennessee. See you when you return in January. Tra la." ! It was the work of only ten seconds to fling on his hat and reach the street; but it was too late. An hour's hard work, including a walk to one of the depots, failed to turn up the man who bad money to leave instead of a bill to col lect. The boy over there was looking very much cast down yesterday. One would have said that somebody had been swearing at him. Detroit Free Press. v Silence is the Charles Buxton. severest criticism. The Poverty that Bides. The poor are always with us, and yet we know them not. The poverty that parades its needs and is perpetually ask ing for "relief" is not the real indigence that true humanity should be most solicitous to help. It is the poverty that hides which the genuine philanthropist should search out and succour. In this great city there are thousands who know the bitterness of unsatisfied hunger, who endured the misery pf that most blight ing Of all COld. the Chill of atarvifi . who suffer torments of mind-worry and' wiowuouusss; ana wno are, in short dyuig of destitution while they keep up an external appearance of respectability and even of content. Medical men who are permitted to see life stripped of its tinsel, especially those who have to deal with the mental phase of human nature at close quarters and in its weakest mo ments, when pretense is no longer pos sible, have this hidden poverty brought painfully home to tbem. The outside public has no conception nf the extent and depth of the impecuniosity that pre vails, and the bitter aching void that is unsatisfied. We pity the so-called -starving poor." Heaven , hely the starving "well to-do" and even seem ingly "wealthy!" It is a grim fact that there is at this moment members of the Some things are so common that few apprehend the ingenuity and .labor re quired to make them. Postage stamps, for instance, are in everybody's month, except the wise ones, who use a wet sponge, but scarcely any one knows how they are mwiufactured. In printing them steel plates are used,, on which two hundred stamps are engraved. Two men are kept hard at work covering them with the colored inks and passing them to a man and girl, who are equally busy at printing them with large rolling hanil . presses. After the small sheets of paper upon which the two hundred stamps are engraved have dried "enough they are sent into another room and gummed. The gum used for the purpose is a pecu liar composition, made of the powder of dried vegetables mixed with water, which is better than any other material, for in stance gum arabio, which cracks the paper badly. The paper is also of a perfect texture, somewhat similar to that used for bank notes. At- ter . having been again dried, this time on little racks, which are fanned by steam power for about an hour, they are put between sheets of pasteboard and prtssed by hydraulic presses, capable of applying a weight of two thousand pounds. The next thing is to cut the sheets in half; each sheet of course when cut contains a hundred stamps. This done by a girl with a large pair of shears, cutting by hand being ' preferred to that of machinery, which method would destroy too many stamps. They are then passed to other squads, ' who, in as many operations, perforate the sheets between the stamps. Next they are pressed once more, and then packed and labled and stowed away in another room, preparatory to being put in mail bags for dispatching to fill orders. If a single stamp is torn, or in any way mutilated, the whole sheet of one hund red is burned. . About fivo hundred thousand are burned every week from this cause. For the past twenty vears not a single sheet has been lost,"such care has been taken in counting them. During the progress of manufacture the sheets are conn" ted eleven times. Scotch man. Peaehf s and Otner Sew Fruit. In California, these davs. the ia - stir among fruit men, as to what to plant. All agree that it is possible to overdo the market unless great care be taken to plant only the best. There. is a growing convic tion that good peaches will be profitable for a long time to come, and many are looking into the subject. A clingstone peach is wanted which does not curl, is a large bearer and a good grower, and cans or dries well. The pit must be compar atively small. The peach should not be ' red at the center, for that is not so good ' for canning use. The larger and finer and higher-flavored . it iB, the better for the grower. There is a seedling, origi nating in Sacramento county, which is. certainly the . handsomest and largest cling we have yet observed. So highly is it prized that the entire stock of buds from the original tree have been put into other trees and none are yet for sale. There are choice seedlings now in the hands of private parties, of which nothing will be heard for several years to come, but which are apt to make a sen sation in the market some day. In faot, there is often more money in planting ha orchard of some improved fruit than in selling the trees. A man who has a good seedling fruit of any sort should show his faith in it by ptanting largely, and holding his peace on the subject till the market returns begin to justify the ven ture. This is true of peaches, and of other fruits, also. There are enough varieties of fruits now for amateur uses and exhibtions. Each new fruit must now De an advance; it must drive out some older sort; it must be more profita ble to the grower than the kind -whose place it takes hs been. Then it will '. easily win success. U Didn't Bam After All. When McUlellan reached Mai vern Hill in hia retrograde movement he had the Federal gunboats at his back; They sent their monster shells over the Fed erals and into the woods where the Con federates, were forming. One of the shells fell in front of a ;brigadier-gen6ral ftom Georgia and two aids, and came rolling to their very feet.

In this situation one of the aids called out: "Gentlemen, I believe secession is wrong, and I'm sorry I took up arms."
