Recollection * of Itito on the Frontier -
tier
A DAY IN MOUMONtWM.
The sun was just pooping over the
Wahaalch range to llio east and
crowning the peaks of the west range
with n golden hnlo when our stage
coach drawn by six lively mustang * ,
rolled up to the door of the only hotel
in the village of American Fork ,
Utah. Theio weio three of us iu tin
party 1 Alf. Forbes , n well-known
western journalist , who closed his
eyes upon earth at U.Utlo Mountain ,
Nov. , about live yotrs since , "Curl } '
Lane , " traveling correspondent of nn
eastern newspaper , and the wiiter of
this sketch , Jj'or five hours e had
tumbled about in the lumbering coach
on the road down from Salt Lake
City , and when the driver drew nn
steamuu ! steeds , with n loud "whoa !
wo breathed throe distinct fi hs of re
lief the import of which could not be
mistaken. The fat Mormon landlord
came out behind a smile that would
have demoralized thu mercury in a
thermometer , threw open the coach-
door with a business air said :
"Welcome , gentlemen nnd la .
But I perceive that you nro not honor-
cd with the company of ladies. Wel
come , gentlemen , welcome to my
house. Come right in and lake hold
just as if you owned the plaro. Let
mo take your valise , sir. Tony ( to
the driver ) , unstrap the gentleman's
trunks from the boot and I'll help you
tote 'em in. This way gentlemen , if
you please. "
Wo followed him into the olllco of
the hotel , a low , dark room about
twenty feet square , on ono side of
which sat a row of wooden chairs aim
on the other stood a rude counter or
bar , with a lly-enibossed mirror behind -
hind it , nnd beneath the mirror a
shelf containing a row of bottles bearing -
ing the insectal ornamentation. The
landlord placed our valises in ono corf
nor of the "room and then waddled behind -
hind the bar and , in a cheery voice ,
said :
"COME ur , GENTS , "
"Come up and take a little something
to skeer the chills away , " at the same
time placing throe dingy looking
liquor glasses and a dark , mysterious
bottle upon thu bar.-
"What is this ? Whisky ? " I asked.
"That , gentlemen , is the genuine
Utah whisky , mode up to Salt Lake ,
It's the ra'al article the pure old val
ley tan. "
For years I had heard from the lips
of overland emigrants the fame of the
valley tun" whisky , and had long
been possessed of a desire to sample
it , just through a spirit of pure curi
osity. I had been told of its wonder
ful workings how it 'would glide
serenely , into the inner man and in a
few moments transform the quiet ,
law-abiding citizen into a "hyena
from Mod uulch , sp'ilin' for a fight , "
and I had fully determined to taste
the , eccentric lluid if an opportunity
to do so over should present itself.
Seining the bottle I poured out a
small portion of the stuff , which
assumed a sickly green color in the
glass. My companions did likewise ,
and : when all were ready wo raised the
raised the glasses , nnd by a brilliant
flank movement surrounded the fiery
liquor , a spasmodic quiver that almost
dislocated our spines shooting over
each one of us as the fluid wont down.
Then wo took scats and began to converse -
verse in subdued tones and to look sad
and pensive. I felt that there was a
HIDDEN VOLCANOE INSIDE OK ME ,
and that it was possessed with an
eager desire to erupt , and a glance at
the faces of my comradoi convinced
me that they wore in a similar state of
wild anxiety. Presently Forbes arose
hurriedly and stepped out on the
Front porch of the inn , and a moment
later wo heard him say something
about "New York. " I could not
catch the full import of his remark ,
but the name of the city mentioned
came to me distinctly. Ho repeated
the assertion several times , and then
"Curly" gathered his abdomen up in
his hands and ran to see' what it was
all about.
A moment later 1 heard the two
boys singing in chorus a sort of im
provised duct in which the name
"Now York" frequently occurred.
Some of the other words in the wild
ballad might , not look well in print.
About this time a vague , undefined
suspicion crept into my mind
that I didn't feel very well myself ,
and not wishing to mar the har
mony of their song I scouted through
a backdoor and into the garden , where ,
amid the budding roses , the blooming
pinks , the harmony of the busy bees ,
and surrounded by the flower-scented
atmosphere , I sang my song in peace
and solitude. I sang it , too , the very
best I know how. There waa no re
serve or false modesty in my rendition
of the glad refrain , but I just throw
the concentrated energy of a lifetime
into the act , and warbled forth what I
had to say regardless of everything.
My ovor-burdoned soul soon found re
lief , and I began to convalesce. When
able to again assume u perpendicular
attitude I sauntered around in front of
the house to see how my companions
wore enjoying themselves They
stood doubled up in picturesque atti
tudes , hangint ; to the posts of the
porch and gazing upon the ground in
sad and pensive manner. Ever and
I
anon their bodies would contract con
vulsively and that old , sad cry of
"Now York" would smite the air and
echo in weird reverberations about the
angels of the hotel.
are you sick ? " i pym1 1
pathetically asked during ono of the
quiet moments intervening between
the livelier ones.
to mine in blank astonishment and
gazed a moment , and then ths old
Hurry entered his pain-rocked soul o
and he got mad. c
"Sick ! " ho roared " f
fairly , "why , you
incarnate licnd , do you suppose I u
would stand hero and act like a dinn a
mod idiot if I wasn't sick ? Han an
idea crept into your corroded brain ?
that I'm hanging on to this post and
whopping things un justfor fun ? Sick !
You confounded bunch of galvani/.od
cheek , docs it appear to you that I'm
tied up into a hard knot and am mak
ing a confused wreck of my interior
department just to while away the
moments , amuse the natives nnd muke
myaolf sociable in this saintly com
munity ? Hick ? You just scoot into
that house or there'll bo another sick
-Oh , Lord ! Ohl Oh ! Ah ! New

I left him alone with his great sorrow
row and wont inside , I wont in and lil
sat down to A breakfast of snowy ,
steaming ( biscuits , delicious colfee ,
mutton chops that would tempt the
nppotilo , of most anybody , sweet ,
fresh ) , golden butter , nnd over so
many attractive otccterns , nnd goon
forgot i the fioul-hnrrowing experience
of the past hour.
After break fast I f-auntored forth to
look 1 at the village , nnd upon a street
corner came upon a grny-hairedj ro
bust I old man , who stood whittling a
dagger out of a piece of pine lath.
Approaching him I taid :
"Good sir. Fine
morning , morn
ing , isn't it ? "
"Howdy do ; howdy do. Yn-as ,
ruthur purty sort o' weather , lie you
a str.uigor horoV"
1 told him I wns , ami nfter offering
him 1 a liberal dose of what the vulgar
denominate "Ulfy , " regarding the
lovely 1 village I asked :
"AUK YOU A MOUMON ? "
"Yn-ns , yn-nsj oh , ya-as , sir , I bo n
Mormon. "
"Married man ? "
"Wnl , yn-as , somewhat. I'm
father in Israel. "
"Married to any creat extent , or
are you only skirmishing around the
outskirts of matrimony , as it were ? "
"Wul , not so very much. Not so
much ns 1 hope to be artor while. "
"How man } ' wives have you ? " I
asked. "How many dear , confiding
creatures huvo placed their hearts and
happiness 1 in your keeping , and claim
the t right to address jou by the en
dearing title of 'old man ? ' " I
"Mister , " said ho , "I have four
wives , nnd four good wives-wives
that are n blesain' an * a comfort to me
hero 1 an' that'll bo a lingerin * joy to
me in the world to come. I expect to
take more if the good o' the cause re
quires < ] it , nnd I hope , young man , that
you do not feel inclined to treat this
righteous custom with levity or worldly
icers. "
1 assured him that I did not , and ,
in fact , I didn't until I got three or
four blocks away from him. Ho
weighed about two hundred and was
muscled like n cannon ball tossor.
WYOMING KIT.

A Chicago Artilleryman Who'Dicd

Eighteen yorrs ago ono of the most
dramatic incidents of the late war , call
ed late because , let il be hoped , nil of
its issues are dead , occurreditt Fourcho
dam , a few miles below this city. ( Jon.
Price and his army wore occupying this
city. Gen. Steele was advancing , The
whole country wns in a terrible state
of excitement. Abnttlo was expected.
Every ono had confidence in the brave
ry and military skill of Gen. Price.
liis achievements wore heralded , his
praises sung.
Ono night , bofpro the dawning of
the 10th cf September , 1803 , a con
federate ofticer , on duty with his men
at an outpost , having received direct
information from n iniin who had been
iu . . the enemy's camp , lay down by a
fire , and on a leaf torn from and old
account book , wrote a dispatch to a i
senior oflicor beginning. "Tho ball
opens to-morrow , and giving a state
ment as to the number o men in the
enemy's ranks , showing that his force
was inferior to Prices army. The
officer wrote "respectfully forwarded"
on the paper , and dispatched a man to
Little Bock , with instructions to do-
ivcr the communication to Gen.
Price ,
The general could not bo found. Ho
was playing cards at a private resi
dence , and only becamoawuro that the
Lime for action had coino when the
booming of cannon , just at daylight ,
aroused , him. The soldiers down the
river fought desperately. They wore
compelled to retreat. Falling back to
Fourcho dam , it was determined that
a filial resistance should bo made.
Son Newton , who had been sent back
to form.tho . men as they arrived , was
executing that order when Gen. MarOi
mnduko , who had been arrested for
killing Gen. Walker , and who had just
been released , dashed up and ex
claimed :
"Wo must make a fight hero to cover
Price's retreat. "
"Cover Price's retreat ? " replied
Newton , in surprise.
"Yes ; for his army is in full retreat. "
Nothing but fight was left. The
enemy , charged , but wore repulsed.
Jelfrics was ordered to take his Mia- '
souri brigade , cross the crook , and
feel of the enemy. Ho crossed , and
not only felt of the enemy , but fol
lowing the promptings of an impulsive
nature , charged the section of a bat-
teiy , supported by cavalry , The cav
alry , from the suddenness of the at
tack , was thrown into con
fusion , and retreated , leaving the guns
unsupported. The captain of the bat
tery , a young man from Chicago ,
stood by one of lim guns , with n re
volver in each hand firing rapidly. lie
was completely surrounded , but re
fused to surrender. The confederates ,
in admiration of his bravery , stopped
firing , and cheered him. He was re
peatedly told to surrender , and as
often refused. He continued to fire ,
and had wounded several men.
"Tnis thing is gittin * tiresome ,
cap'n , " yelled a lank Miasourian , ' 'an'
if you don't behave yourself , an" quit
your skylarkin' , you'll git hurt.
The bravo follow , with a disdainful
gesture , exclaimed :
"I told the people of Chicago that
would never surrender this battery ,
and by all the demons in hell I'll keep
my word , " and ho leveled his pistol at
the Missotirian. Dint the lank man
was too quick for him , and throwing
up ! his pistol he fired. Capt. Heed j
foil across his gun , shot through ( he
heart. "JJravo man , " raid the boys ,
as they laid him on the ground ,
preparatory to removing the gun.
"Uravo man , Itis a pity wo had to kill
him. " The gun , with its death-mark
of life's blood , was drawn away by the
confederates , and used in a dozen dif
ferent battles , but noone ever washed
off the blood. Once when an oflicor
asked one of the men why ho did1 not
wash his gun , the soldier related the
circumstances of Need's death. "Let
the blood remain ; it is a mark of respect -
spoct to the memory of a bravo man. "
Just before the close of the war
Capt. Iteed , the name applied to the
ljuii , was dismounted by n cannon
ball , After the battle the soldiers
tenderly buried the heavy iron. The
rains of heaven nor the Imnds of man
liad not washed off the blood.
