MONTGOMERY Has a First Class STOCK. ft "ET7EBED." Were I asked to name the races of the south I should answer: "White, black and the mountain eer." The latter belongs to a dis tinctive race. While he may be classed with the white as iar as color goes, his tastes, habits, char acteristics and mode of life are peculiarly his own. If he likes you he will make any sacrifice to oblige you. If he hates you he will seek your life with a deter mination which nothing can damp. The great world beyond his moun tain home is a sealed book to him. He lives in himself, by himself and for himself. I was riding over that spur of the Cumberland mountains which general Morgan (federal) held so gallantly while Buel and Bragg were driving eacn otner Dy turns over Kentucky, when I lost my way. The mountain trails of the south are dangerous puzzles to a stranger. They run up and down, twist, turn, dodge, lose themselves in dark ravines and seem to end suddenly in dark and lonely gaps. There is a feeling of loneliness which you cannot shake off, and a feeling of anxiety which rides with you and keeps every sense alert. Every rod of the trail has its am bush, and every quarter of a mile its cliff, seemingly ready to fall upon you. I came to a spot where three trails branched away. It was luck and chance. I took one which led me into a long dark ra vine, where the summer sun has not yet touched the icicles on the rugged rocks nor coolled the mountain rivulet pouring over the moss grown ledges. After going a mile I felt that I was wrong, and was about to turn baoir, wnen a voice suddenly called out through the semi-darkness. "Stranger you ar' kivered!" throw up your hands!" If that command ever reaches your ears, obey it at once and do your arguing subsequently. It means that your head or heart is in point blank range ot a bullet or buckshot with a finger resting on the trigger and ready to pull it if you don't obey the summons. Up went my hands. After a . long halt minute a mountaineer, who had a dead sight on me with a double-bar' relied shotgun across a point of rock twenty feet ahead, stepped into view on the trail and said: 'Stranger slip down!" I slipped off the saddle. "Now lead your mule up that ravine to the right!" I simply saw a man six feet high straight as an arrow, long haired, whiskers unkempt, dress that of a mountainoer. Yes, I saw more. Ho held the gn fair for my breast. Una suspicious novo on my part and I was a dead man. He spoke in a low voice but there was that in his tones which chilled me. Without a second look at him I took the mule by the bits and led him up the ravine. We had not gone twenty rods beforo I scented a whiskey still. At the end of five rods more we were in a rude camp. Two moonshiners sal on a log, guns across their knees, and back of and below them a still was running off its extract of corn. "Ono ol them spies!" said the man who had followed me as I let go of the mule and sat down on a stump. "A good sketch!" growled one of the sitters. "Mighty-kind in him to come yere!" chuckled the other. ' They were moonshiners, and they took me for a. spy sent out by the government-official of that district. I looked from -one to the other. There was a determination in each look an implacable stern ness of expression which would have'warnedi a genuine spy that his hour had come. Not one glance of pity not one line of mercy. A prisoner at the stak'e among the Apaches would have had more 'hope. Tho men were law-breakers outlaws being hunted after every day in the year. Why? .Because they were making a living keep ing soul and body together in the only way open to them. The bits of valleys in the grim old Cumber lands will grow corn and potatoes. 'The poUtoesare wanted for the ta mo, xi mere is more corn man ice razorMbacked.,bpg or tho shackling miile'can'-consume, it is a aead loss. Convey it to market two days to go and two days to come, and sell it for two bits a bushel, and the own. er and seller would starve on the way. Make it into a barrel or two of whisky and it will bring cash on the spot, or very near it. It is not to grow rich, not hoping to better his condition but sim ply to live. It is against the law of the land. The mountaineer may grow ragged and hungry, but he must not distill. It is the only law he breaks. Aye! He even lives closer, than the most of us to all the commandments. He is outlawed and hunted that offi cials may make fees. 1 knew all this belore I looted into the stern, set faces around me and I knew why I looked in vain for a gleam of mercy. "1 am no spy," I said, as I looked about me. "I am a trav eler, making for Cumberland Gap, and I've lost my way." "Go np that path," commanded the man who had captured me. "Not until I satisfy you that I am not a spy." "Kiver him, Joe," whispered the man to one of the 'others, and a shotgun covered my breast again. Tne leader ran down back the ravine to be sure that no one had followed us. When be returned he said: "Say yer prayers, stranger! Joe, when I riz my hand do you -plug tuml' "Did any of you ever hear of Joe Rickaby?" I asked, trying hard to keep a steady voice. "Wall, what if we had?" asked the leader. "About a year ago I found him in jail in B . He had been there for several months. He was sick and out of money and I aided him. Here's his name in mv note book. See?" The man with the gun lowered his weapon and came closer and asked: "Was anybody else in the jail Joe?" "Yes half a dozen all moon shiners. I sent in 2 worth of pipes and tobacco, and I got ono of them some quinine." "He's the chap, sure's shooting!" exclaimed the man as he turned to the others. "On my soul he is!" added the leader as lie came up an'd removed my hat. "Durn our buttons!" whispered the third. In a minute more it was ' all right, and they were shaking my hand so vigorously that my shoul der ached. The humble cabin a quarter of a mile away was open to me forevermore, and it was two days before they wonld let go of me to resume my journey. The wife at the cabin had mone , per ception than the men. She looked me over and then said: ' - "Oh! sassafrax, but you fellers is all blind. Hain't he Yank all over and all through? Whar's the sunburn? , Whar's the lingo? Whar'r the hoss-pistols? Purty muss you'd have got yerselves in to killin' a Yank, who don't keer if every branch in the Tenneasee runs cl'ar whisky! .Better not be so handy with them guns arter this." The leader walked with me for five miles when I left, and when we parted he said: "Strancrer, when I told ye to say yer prayers I meant they POWDER Absolutely Pure This powder never varies, A marvel of purity, strength and wholesomeness, Jlore economical than the ordinary kinds, and cau not be sold In competition with the multi tude ot low test, short weight, alum or phos phate powders.
