We submit the story for your judgment, hoping that you may laugh and wonder, as many others have, when reading the quaint speculations of Big Jack. CHAPTER VI. Mr. Sighal marched afoot, paus ing to pick up a peculiar pebble and carry it awhile, then to find a peb ble more peculiar, and drop the first to take the recond; now to hunker down and study the spikes upon a sleeping horned toad, to pluck some flower so tiny 6mall that it seemed but a speck among the pulpy dry gravel and loose earth; now turning face-about to take in the rugged outline of the mountain under whose shadow he had passed the the night, and then lower his vision to note the saucy swaggering strut of that black "prospector," the raven, walking down the road in the distant track of the wagons, not failing at the time to watch the the lizards flash across his path; now again trudging along, like Bunyan 's "Christian," with eyes surveying the to him unknown land in front the Delectable Mountains, where ac cording to Mr. Small, he might see some "bully float quartz." To him the sameness of tha land was a new ness: no green and gold of leaves that grow and leaves that die, no babbling streams through valleys grown with grass, no heaving fields with squares of "thine and mine;" but one wide waste of ashen gray, one cloudless sun, one wagon-road across the scene, and mountains all about. Thus the time passed. Driving all day in the Lot tun, with unhitch ing, cooking, eating, talking, pray ing, cooking, eating, and rehitching during the cool evening and morn ing, and sweetly sleeping through the night. Dustily across valley after valley; slowly up this side noisily down the other side of mountain after mountain, Mr. Small pausing on the summit of each to point out to the parson the promin ent peaks as they appeared plainly to the eye in a range of one hundred miles showing, here and there, far away, their huge sides, where man, with all his might ana genius, is boring mere gimlet-holes, form which to draw the bright wealth that makes the yellow glitter in the city's halls. In the long slow journey, Mr. Sighal sought, by easy lessons, to draw round the consciousness of Big Jack Small the subtile and intricate simplicity of his own faith in a per sonal God with feelings of human ity and feeling for humanity, yet powerful to the utmost limit of all the mighty magnitudes of power. All of which Mr. Small refused to see, and stoutly clung to his own crude materialism, overshadowed by a wide Gothic spirituality, born per haps of the tribal tinge in the blood which gave him his fair skin, high bridged nose, bold gray eye, end long tawny beard. It was again the old subtilities born of a southern sun endeavoring to bring the wild Norse blood upon its knees at the foot of a Roman crocs. The conversion of the Indian, which was Mr. Small's special desire, did not proceed satisfactorily. It is comparatively easy, I opine, to build religion upon civilizatiou; but the labor must be thorough and the effort exhaustive where there is only love of food, of passion, and of ex istence to start on. Yet the Indian was not without curiosity, nor, be ing a better specimen of his race, was he totally without the spirit of inquiry into unsubstantial things. On several occasions during the trip he sought to discover the object of prayer. Uh, Jack," queried he, "what for modi sum-man ho would call the parson a medicine-maa "what for modisum-man all 'er time little stand-up, shut am eye, heap up talk! Injin no sabe." Thar now, Parson," said Mr. Smal, "this Injin wants to know why yer kneel down, shet yereyes, an' talk up at the sky. He says he don't understand it". . ' i "I wish that I possessed a know- ledge of his language, and could be the means, under God, of opening to him and his people the way to life everlasting. "Well, Parson, yere's a big game feryer to play. Thar's hundreds o' his kind in these mountains, an' their lingo haint hard to learn, an' they haint hard to teach about religion. Anyhow they learn to swear ancuss, an' nobody kin do that till he's been among people of a Christian coun try!" "Mr. Small," answered the Parson, who, now that he was growing stronger in body, was "more aggres sive in mind, "there is. a sneering levity in your manner when you speak of serious things which pains me to hear." "Excuse me, Parson. That's only my style, an' style haint nothin' in this country. The p'int is how we're goin' to git light into this Injin that's the p'int." "I grieve to say, Mr. Small, that I am as yet utterly unable to converse with him in the broken jargon of English which he seems to compre hend when you speak to him." "All right, then. Come yere, In jin. 1 11 try my hand on him. My mother allers wanted me to be a preacher an' help convert the heath en. The Indian came up smiling. "Yer sabe little-stand-upí" "Yash, heap sabe too much." HVor ealiA Vionn tnllr-nnV M.. l' "f "Yash. Heap sabe modisum-man." "Now, Injin, me talk Big Jack talk." "Bueno" (good). "When bueno man heap little- stand-up, heap talk-up aller time, by um by, long time, he heap old man, heap die. Yer sabe?" "Yash; heap sabe die. Aller same Injin yakwe." "Yes, by um by, die," repeated Mr. Small, scratching his head through a pause, in his doubt how to pro ceed. "Then, pretty soon, by um by, after while, bueno man go up up', pointing to the sky "way, way up yonder, an' no come back." "No come back!" echoed the In dian, apparently deeply interested in the revelation. "No; no come back." "Where he goT rso ketch um wick-i-np?" "Yes; fine house bueno wick-i- P," "Heap work?" "No; no work." "Bueno! approved the Indian. Me no like um work." . "No: no work. Heap sing all time sing." "Aller time sing?" repeated Gov. "Yes; all time sing, in one big wick-i-up. No coat ketch um; no pantaloons." "No pantaroons?" "No; no pantaloons. One big gown all same shirt. All time sing; no come night. Yer sabe?" "Yash; mo heap sabe. Heap tic cup?" (food) earnestly interrogated the Indian. "No; no ticcup." "Heap squaw?" "No; no squaws." "What yer call um?" "Heaven." "Que-bueno hebben no good No pantaroons, no ticcup, no squaw que-bueno hebben! Me no like um." Notwithstanding the solemnity of the subject, the Reverend Mr. Sigh al found himself shaking with re strained laughter at Mr. Small's first missionary effort among the - Sho shonees. "Thar," said Mr. Small, with great emphasis, "as a missionary I'm a failure. Gov, go git some brush fer ' the fire. But I'll not give that In jin up! I'll go fer him agin when I haint got nothin' else to do," added he, going about his usual camp work. Mr. Sighal took a walk around the camp, apparently giving the whole matter - up as being beyond his present influence. The camp to which Big Jack Small's freight was consigned was a new one, and, of course, the last days of the trip led the team over newly broken roads, which fact increased the labor of Mr.' Small, and gave to his face and language a somewhat serious expression. ' During the last day's drivo before coming to camp, the road was particularly uneven, and on the down-grade caused the long high wagon-boxes to reel to and fro like boats at sea. Often the wagons, despite the strong friction of the howling brakes, pressed upon the cattle and crowded them upon each other en masse. Then again the hindmost wagon, ia making a turn, encroached so far upon the inner sido of the circle that the brake must be let up to avoid sliding farther and overtuning, as a rolling wheel slides les3 than a wheel which is locked. On ojsa of these sideling turns, on tho brink of a shallow dry-wash, Mr. Small was compelled to stop his team to prevent the overthrow of the rear wagon. As he proceeded to release tho brake, which on this particular wagon had its lever low down and between the forward and hind wheel, the wheels, from the slight move they made after being released, settled the wagon just a little, but far enough in its nearly poised position to turn it over sud denly, before Mr. Small could fly for safety. Which Jesus? We little realize how much has been lost to history concerning those momentous events which the Jerusalem Evening Journal is now chronicling. The evidence in the Gospel according to John, concern ing these losses, we referred to in an editorial last Wedensday. Since the journals were commenced a new fact has been discovered in the recently-found Syriac text from Mount ' Sinai. It appears that the robber whom the governor offered to re lease instead of Christ and who is named Barabbcs in our Bibles was also named Jesus, which was a common name in Palestine. This coincidence of nmes a modern journalist would not fail to note, for it gives a striking antithetic force to the question.of Pilate, "Which Jesus do you wish me to release, Jesus Bar-Abbas or the Jesus that is call ed Christ?" This was probably made clear in the first drafts of the Gospels, and and was the reasons for the digres sion necessary to introduce Barabbas into the narrative of the trial. Tho application of the hallowed name of Jesus to a rioter and a murderer doubtless jarred on many ears, and for this reason some copyist finally left out the name but permitted the digression shorn of its point to re main.

Stoddard, writting from Louisville, Ky., to the New York Mail and Express, says; "I asked Mayor Todd today what had oc curred to rouse the people here so for McKinley. 'I presume my case is like others,' said he; 'I know from practical experience the difference to a business man between trying, to get along under the McKinley tariff and tho Wilson tariff. McKinley seems to me to embody the Ameri can idea of protection better than any of the other candidates. Out of thousands of letters received we are informed that not only republicans but democrats as well, want Mc Kinley, and that, too, in sections of our state that heretofore have been solidly for free trade. The people are everywhere calling for protec tion. That's why they want Mc Kinley.'" A militia officer of Barcelona, Spain, has informed his government that if it will arm his 12,000 Calolo- mans with Mansur rifles and land them in the Uuited States,he -will soon overrun and subjugate the country. This is a caso where ignore anco is bliss. EARLY TIMES ON WABASH. The Venerable John B. Gunn Gives Some Flatboating Reminiscence. But few people in theso days of plenty and luxury have any correct idea of how people lived in the early days of this section of country. Corn bread, pork, venison and other game was our only living. Wheat bread was only known aboiit Christ mas time, when some one of our most favored neighbors would send to the city and get a small quantity of flour for pies and cakes for the Holidays. Our clothing home-spun jeans, flanael, linaea and linsey was raised, carded, spun and woven at home and none but the wealthiest were ever seen wearing store clothes, and they only on Sundays. Money was very scarce. What there was, was silver and paper, mostly what was called "sjiin plasters." But little state bank money circulated in the country, and gold was seldom seen. Our change was picayunes (GJ cents), bits (12J cents) quarters, halvc'3 and dollars. When dimes and five cent pieces were first issued by the government and circulated they were a curiosity and for a long time were sought by many for keep sakes. Now picayunes and bits are out of existence. Farming was on a small scale and nearly all produce raised was con sumed at homo except such as could be transported easily in wagons to the Wabash or Ohio rivers. In 1835 my father opened a small store at Round Prairie, Wabash county, tho place now called Lan caster. In that store he kept, or tried to keep, ever3thing the farmer needed dry goods, groceries, hard ware, queeusware, boots, shoes, hats, caps,- drugs, medicines, books, sta tionery, salt, nails, iron, tar, whisky, and other liquors.' Nearly every body used whisky in those days and, strange to say, there was compara tively little drunkenness. He took in payment for such accounts veni son, deer skins, coon skins, honey, beef hides, beeswax, tallow, feathers, flax seed, rags, white beans, ginseng, jeans, linsy, flannel, flax, linen, dried fruits and what little money could be raised. In 1837 the farmers began to raise more corn, and there being no home market for it he conceived the idea of running flatboats out of Bod pas creek, which was five miles west of j his store, and in the summer of that j year he gathered together a lot of men and went to work cleaning out that creek, cutting away the leaning trees and brash, cutting and burn ing the drifts and dragging out tho logs until they had cleaned the creek from Higgin's Mill to Grays ville, about seventy miles by water. He then cut timber and sawed lum ber with a whip-saw and built a flat- boat eighteen feet wide and sixty feet long, which would iold about 3,000 bushels of corn in the ear also built corn cribs on the bank of the creek in which to store tho corn. Having his boat ready, a dam was built sufficient to keep the bo; afloat, the corn loaded into the boat and she made ready to start at a moment's notice, and in the spring when the flood came they started and went out in safety and run her to New Orleans. With this success to encourage him, the next year he built three boats and a packing 'house at the boat yard, bought hogs, cured the meat and loaded two boats with corn and one with pork and was again successful. The business was continued and increased and sc seasons we took out as many as six or 6ieht boats, none of them less than sixty feet long and some as long as eighty feet. My first trip was made in the spring of 1830, and from that time until 1852 I made the trip every spring, taking south pork, corn, oats, venison, hams, dried fruit, white beans, poultry, eggs, apple butter, honey, etc. In the spring of 1844 my father bought a boat already loaded with 2,500 bushels of corn on the Wabash river, near Russelville. The man had never been down the river and was fearful and became discouraged. He came to my father and offered him the corn at tea cents per bushel and uo charge for the boat. Father sent me io mn the boat down. I took three men and started, but arriving at tho rapids above Mt. Carmel found the water too low to get over, so tied up my boat at the mouth of Coon creek, discharged the men and wait ed, for a raise in the river. I was well provided with provisious, had my dog, gun and violin, and spent nearly six weeks there keeping the boat in order, hunting, fiishing, cooking and eating along with my dog, except for an occasional visitor who always arrived to partake of dinner with me, and of cours I had a good timo. Finally the water came and I run safely to New Orleans, and doubled tha .money. The business of flatboatiiig out of Bonpas increased until it became quite common for farmers and others to build boats and run their produce south, and I have known of as many as twenty-fivo boats to be run out of Bonpas in one season. The success in Bonpas encouraged the thought of running out of Fox river, and William Newell and A. Darling were the pioneers on that raging river. I think it was they who built two boats and went out successfully. In the spring of 1852 I took out the last boat that was taken out of the Fox. She was eighty feet long and held tho produet of nearly 3,003 hogs, I had some trouble and a great deal of fun and went safely to New Orleans and returned homo in about six weeks with a profit of S9,000. This was the last trip out of Fox, but we continued the busi ness in Bospas and were always suc sessful in getting out of that stream until the spring of 1854. We had five boats loaded with corn and oats and two with pork. A flood came in February and we run the corn out safely, but the pork was not ready and lato in March another flood came and wo started-with the pork boats. It turned freezing cold, the water began to fall nnd we got only about five miles when wo had to stop, the water being too low and falling. We built a dam to save our boats and waited for another raise, but it did not como. We waited until Juno and then got teams and hauled our produce to Mt. Carmel and contracted with a small steamer to take our pork to Evansville, but the steamer got stuck on a Rand bar some'.rhera above Vincennes and could not get off. We then hired teams and haul ed our pork to Princeton and from there by railroad to Evansville, and the season being far spent, we ship ped to different places and wound up the trade with a loss of over SS,000.

Th9 award involves a payment by tho Santa Fe company of about $1,000, 000, and will causo a material in crease in the r3V0iiua3 of the At lantic & Pacific road. The lattor's percentage of the through rate is increased by the arbitrators about 5 por cent, and its share of the an nual rental to be paid tho Mojave division Í3 decreased about 300,000. During the winter of 1893, F. M Martin, of Long Reach, West Ya. contracted a severe cold which left him with a cough. In speaking of how he cured it he says: "I -used several kinds of cough syrup but found no releif until I bought a bottle of Chamberlain's Cough Remedy, which relieved me almost instantly, and in a short time brought about a completo curo." When troubled with a cough or cold use this remedy and you will not find it necessary to try several kinds before vou tret relief, lt has been in the market for over twenty years and constantly grown in favor and popularity.
