[ Tor- rcsDonileneo of the HIK. : ] Leaving Crazy Woman's Fork wo cross a largo level bottom covered with "sweet grass , " and from which exhales adelieioiHoilor. This is the grass which the Indians gather und dry to scent themselves \ \ ith. In cixvly times they used to como Ijng distance' ' to | get it , as it is not very plentiful on the western plains. It has qnito a broad blade like timothy , is stripped and when dried smells like sweet myrrh. Leaving the valley wo llnd ourselves AJIONU THU SAXI > uu.r > s which extend in conical-shaped cones on every hand. Some of these hills are quito high , rising two and oven three hundred feet above the ksvel of the plain. Hero used to bo the most dangerous spot on all the Powder river road for wagon trains. The Indians would hide behind the hills , Muldonly pounce down on a ( ram or traveler , and bo off again and lost to sight before ono could hardly realize what had happened. The hill-tops wcro good fortresses , and from over their crests niul around their sharp sides the reds would pour down a murderous fire upon the unprotected heads of the team sters. About a mlle from the entrance to these hills is whcro M'l'HEIiSON'S TItAIN "WAS ATTACKED wlillo on its way to Fort Phil Kearnoy. It was ono of the most tcrrilic Indian lights on record. The Sioux corralled the train for three days , killed three and wounded seven drivers. At night the Indians pressed so closely that tlio men had to lake to the wagons. The dead wcro loft on the ground , and those in the wagon ? toward dayiight could hoar the wolves dragging away the bodies and munching : the tlesh and bones of their dead com rades. Hcd Cloud in person commanded the Indians engaged in this battle. Doyoml the sand hills wo como to a high , rolling prairie , which extends for six miles to m-own's springs. Thesq are two pools of brackish water , hardly lit tor use. For eleven miles wo now pass over prairie country devoid of timber , and then como to Clear Fork of Powder river. This is a ucautifnl mountain stream , fed by innumerable springs , and Hews through some rich lands. To the left are the 15ig llorn mountains and only about fifteen miles distant. The heads of the Clear Fork are said to bo largo and beau tiful springs of pure , clear and icy cold water. Tlio stream is well timbered , and a mile down its bank wo encamp for the night in a grove of hard wood. This country is covered with sago brush and some of it grows to a height of four feet , showing that the ground must bo very rich and strong. 1 have observed that the twisted biigo only grows on HICIl LAND. and here this variety is found in great abundance. The leaf is long and narrow and a shade darker than the ordinary sago. Tko aroma is stronger and ( Ills the air with an odor not unpleasant to smell , and said to be very healthy. The stalk is girirlctl nnd twisted into every conceiva ble shape. It is often as thick as a man's nrm , and if it grow up straight and tall would bo ton to twelve feet high It is. howuver , almost always shapeless and seldom grows three inches straight up. The wood makes n hot fire and is exten sive 13- used for fuel and cooking both by Indians and whites , This region is the NATUltAT , HOMi ; OF THE SACin HHN , and they abound all along Powder river , or did a few years ago , in innumerable Hooks , often numbering irom fifty to a hundred in a single Hock. The tlesh of the sago lion is strongly impregnated with saga and not very good , but if par-boiled in a little salt-water and soda the sagey taste loaves thorn , and the young ones are as good as young chickens , grouse or pheasants. Largo pine-squirrels are also plentifnl in th's ' region. I have never oaten any of them , but I am told the llesh is quite good and as wholesome as either grey or black squirrels. WILD riiUIT. Wild plum trees grow all along the Powder , and were loaded down with largo nnd delicious yellow and rod wild , plums. Wild grapes , currants and goose berries also were found , but not BO abun dant ns the plums. The ground about the plum groves was well trampled up by nr.AKS , and some of the tracks wcro cloven Inches long. I have never lost any boars nnd did not look for these , but the guide told mo there wcro "millions of them" in the mountains near by. They nro of the griz/.ly and cinnamon species , and the largest and most ferocious in the llocky mountains , often weighing 1,000 nnd oven 1,200 pounds when dressed. I saw the skin of ono of thcso boasts , and when spread out it completely covered the Hour of my tent , which was nine by cloven feet. TIIOUT. Wo found in the Powder river golden mountain trout. They are the finest in the west and almost eqmil in llesh to the red speckled trovit of Now York awl Pennsylvania. The moat of the Kooky mountain golden trout is yellowish , but very sweet and nutritious. The Powder audits branches scorned full of them , and it was only necessary to cast a line to got n bite , and a dozen could readily bo caught in a few minutes. The fish wcro not ianre , generally ranging from six to eight and ton inchcn long , and in weight from half a pound to a pound and n half. All the land along Clear Fork of Pow der river seemed to bo good agricultural land and capable of producing anything planted in it. Kvnry two or throe miles u stream ( lowed into the main rivor. am up those little streams stretched bcautifu valleys , well timbered and with ricl lands. In thu little vnlloys the grass WIIH up to our horses' bellies , and I could not heln thinking that these rich little valleys will ) their picturesque surroundings were natural homos for farmers. Having eulon heartily of trout , we loft Clear Fork anil journoi'od over a hilly and sandy region twelve miles to Con i- nor'n springs , which are sometimes also cnlled Brown's springs , after Captaii II Frederick Drown , who fell on Massacre ItiUgo , near Fort Phil Kearney , in 1807. coxNoit's srniNos , ns wo shall prefer to call them , nromerolj pools of brnoklsh water , unlit for drink Ing , and they are surrounded by black niiro , so that it Is dangerous at most son sons of the year for stock to npproao ! thorn. Tlicro nro high hills near the springs , and ascending these , yon got t ( l line view of the country cast and iiortl for a distance of twelve miles. The out line of the sharp banks of the Powder river can bo seen for n long distance toward the Dig Horn mountains , lyinj , north and west. Again wo go forward OVKIt HILLS AND HOU.INO PLAIN'S , and after eight miles como to Hock creek n small stream which takes its name frnn the nature of the bud over which it Hews The waters are shallow , but How will great rapidity over the black rocks.

At no limo w'Uhin the last quarter of n century has General Hut lor been regarded \s a political novice. lie admits , how ever , that ho knows moro now than ho did four years ago. The laboring cle ment of this country , lie says , cannot bo cemented into a successful parly organ ization. Tlio two organizations will bid for the laboring vote and got it just in proportion na they arc able to commend themselves to laboring Inen. Hoing un able to obtain the concession from tlio doniooratio party in 1881 he demandedin the interest of labor , to give the weight of his name and liis political experience to a third party. The voters did not oven thank him. Thcj * divided between the two organizations pretty much as though Utttler wore not in the Held Taking a long view of the qucstiou the voters were right , Clnss parties are not popular in this country * The laboring men can moro easily direct the course of cither party thnn they can organize a third against the two. The power of tlio laboring men lies in their ability to defeat n nomination inimical to their in forests. They should boo that members of the legislature and of tlio lower house of congress tit i > friendly to labor , not only just before election , but at all times. When n tool of corporations is nom inated the laboring mnn should refuse to vote for him. Their numbers unable thorn to defeat any candidate who is con spicuously antagonized against their in terests. Laboring men can divide be tween two patties , reserving their right of independent action for occasions when the party with which they have nctod has plactd before them unworthy candidates litthis , way they can render ho defeat of ( i particularly obnoxious candidate so certain that such will cense to bo nominated. Workingmen might also cultivate their memory for their friends. Vory'of ton men who have boon true to the real interests of the country have been stricken down by organised capital , and tlio laboring men have let him Ho ns ho foil. Butler's latest way ot making tiieir power felt is the better of the two. Why tlio Pnraou Was Mad. 'And how's Parson McWliacker ? " asked an ox-Arizonian , talking about old friends with a lawyerjustup from Tomb- stono. "Oh , the parson's ' nil right. He's loft the Methodists and turned liberal , you know. " "Don't say ! I hadn't heard anything of it. " "Oh , yes : he preaches on his own hook every 'Sunday night in the opera house , aud ho's doing a big business , too. " "Glad to hear it , The parson's a nice man. " "Yc-es , but ho and I ain't friends any moro. Took offense nt a mighty little thing. Awful touchy , those sky pilots. You see I wont in by the stage door not liking to attract attention by being seen at church , you sabo and steered for n private box. I bad to grope along in the dark behind tlio scenes , and my hand struck against an overcoat hanging on the wall. It had something hard in the pocket , and I found it was n Hask. I took it aloii to the box anil got away with it by the time service was over. The parson saw mo sitting there , and nodded from the sacred desk. When ho'd closed the case ho came around to see mo , and I saw that ho was mad. Ho said some scoundrel linn picked his pocket while Ho was preaching. , " 'That'sair right , ' says I fishing the flask up from under my chair , 'hero she is. ' "Tho parson's face lighted up and ho reached for it. " 'Empty'says lie. " 'Hotelier' bays I. " 'It's n mighty mean trick , ' said the parson , furiously 'You might have loll mo ono drink. ' , ' says I , 'como ever with mete to the Klito and you uttn liavo all llio drinks you want. "That's all very well. Mr. Luskin&n3's the parjion , mad enough to cry , 'but you know well enough that a clergyman can't go up to a bar on Sunday. \ ou arc a mnn of protligato principles , Luskin , and dang me , if it wa not for my cloth I'd ' give yon a deal right hero that'd make your liead swim. ' "Of course that ended everything bo twcon the parson unit mo. Hoing n gontlonuin I couldn't lick a preacher , you know , so I'quiotly told him to go to the lower levels , and went out into the house and joinqd the departing congfe- gallon.

His or thography was defective in certain in stances. Ho reali/.ed this and asked mete to amend it , and when wo had gone over the programme witli n pencil ho returned his heartfelt thanks. There were one or two little things that annoyed him. Lor instance , ho had never made a study of oratory , and there was danger of Ins breaking down in the middle of His speech. Then , too , his voice was not in good trim , and the spec tators on the back seats might fool put out bccyuso they could not catch his words. Ho would bo thankful for sug gestions from a newspaper man. I told him to try nnd make a hit on oratory , but to tell a plain story nnd drop in the gestures when ho thought they would count. The crowd would ex cuse his voice , knowing that ho had been shut up for the last six months. His countenance cleared up at once , nnd ho insisted that ho was my debtor. Tboro was another thing. He had two brothers and ono sister. They had thrown out " hints that they would"bo on hand to see him swung ou. Within a day or two ho liad begun to doubt the propriety of such action , llo didn't ' want to disappoint thorn , but would It bo just the proper caper for them to snow up on such an occasion ? 1 replied that he had better leave the matter lor them to decide.

A Minlnc Cninji Startled liy ft Stranger Who Called JHnmeir John the Hill Nye in Chicago News : I was im posed upon once in a way I despise. 1 do not say it because it was tlio first time I was over imposed upon , for it was not. To bo imposed upon scorns to bo my sphere. Eight years ago , while 1 was doing some assessment work on the old 1 Hoomerang claim on Mill creek , our camp was startled by the appearance of n man witli a hopeless drooji in the knees of his pantaloons mid indications of nn intense nervous strain on the only MIS- ponder ho woro. There was homoihing about the man that instantly caught nnd retained the intincst of tint spectator. It was the siispomlor. Unconsciously wo looked nt it with horror and npprohon bion , for it might give way at any mo. mimt. Ho was a small mnn , with dark , red eyes. They seemed to bo nil the limo floating about in n .sen of unshed tears. Ho did not wear good clothes , Ills rai ment iind originally been that of n man rather below the middle walks of lite. This original owner had originally worn them along for years below the middle walks of life , anil then ho had tlirown tlioin nwny , After n reasonable delay this gentleman had gone to the rag-pile and appropriated them.V were not vain of our own personal appearance in the camp in those days , but when wo saw this man and his snaggy bark wo lelt moro content with our lot. 1 can see John the Dnpti t , as he nulled himself , in the clear , rod light of a moun tain sunset in July , as ho we und up the crooked road that crossed and recrosscd the little irrigation canal. Ho were n lull beard with cracker crumbs in it , but otherwise perfectly plain. It was onn of those long , reddish beards with little Hecks of sunshine and other natural phe nomena in it It was the kind of beard that an oldt Etruscan mormon generally banks up In * windpipe with Ho was a meek man with a retreating manner aud a forehead of the sump style. 1 His ears hung low on the side of his head J and little tufu of red bunch grass grew out of each. They weio pale CUM with l ! little bronze freckles on thorn mini bo were small eartho'ps In Ilia pufl'y bottom of Onch lobe. He were a derby Imt. U wns not the kind of Derby bat worn so much now. It was nbout the llrM ono that wsis made , and H had a wire run through the brim to hold it in shape. It was not a jnunly lint U was ritlior what might bo called n plain , unassuming hat that didn't ini tend to brag or boast , Out was willing to let its work show for Itself. His other clothes were plain also. Ho wns not vain of them , llo simply were them out of deference to tlio statutes in such case made aud provided. The eoat liad Mowing sleeves to It , and It wax held n place at the throat by a tenpenny nail , liis pantaloons were once giddy and checked , but now they had lost all spirit and nil hone. The drooped like a forgotten political boom , and they clung to John the Haptist because there was absolutely no one else on whom to cling. These pantaloons wcro simply the wreck of former grandeur ; once proud and , y , they were now used snnplv as an evasion of the law ; once and springy about thu bottoms , they were now tlio saddest of all pictures a pair of battered , neglected , bacgy , plaid | ) anlaloons , plain in front , loopotl ever nno shotihlcr , and caught at intervals by This man was said to bo a little warned intellectually , but I didn't notice it. Of course it was a little eccentric for him to come into camp and register as John the Haptist. without giving his surname , but most all of us were noin do plumes there in camp , and so wo wcro not liinuisitlvo about people's homo names. There is notliing that feel' easier to eat and sleep in during hot weather , nothing that has less tendency to bag at tlio knees or bind under the arms than a Mother llubbnrd nom tie plume. So we all were them. John the Haptist preached in camp on iho following Sabbath aud wo all lis tened to him. lie talked modestly about liimself. Now and then lie referred to tlio Creator , but only iiiuulentally , llo could make a good grammatical prayer nnd.vitlibettor _ clothes on , would have made an impression as the chaplain of Ihe legislature. Some of his petitions to the throne of grace would have read nil right in the Congressional Record , but still ho wnsi 't a man who seemed to ac complish anything witli ins prayers. While ho was a good , all around extem poraneous speaker at such a time , his po- Litions never seemed to get any further Lhan the clerk of the committee on cre dentials. I had faith in him though , nnd gave lilm my other blue flannel bhlrt , which lie needed sadly , especially when the ; ot pretty not and ho wanted to take his off coat nnd run around loose in liis shirt-sleeves. No man can successfully loaf around a mining camp in liis shirt-sleeves unless lie has a shirt , so John the Baptist were my blue shirt and put liis long , weary legs under my groaning board , and slept on my lloor in low , guttural tones , aud borrowed 1113' gun , and scratched tlio stock against the rocks , and jammed tlio barrel in trying to lisli a tarantula out of a crevice with it , borrowed some money of mo , and wont ever to town. llo uevor came back to the old Boomerang claim , but returned to his largo and airy asylum at Mount Pleasant , as one of tlio guests of the state. I presume ho is there now , wearing my blue ilanncl shirt and doing tlio forerun- nei act. It was two weeks after ho went away before I learned the truth. Then Buck Brammel came up to my cabin and said : "Bill , you remember that party tuat claimed to be John the Baptist and used your smokin' tobaccer hero for Iwo or three weeks and went away a fern t ago. Well , ho was no more John the Baptist than I be. They say ho played the lo cust and wild honey racket all through Nebraska and downed 'cm in good shape , but ho was no more John the Uaptist than I bo. lie was another man. " UILL , NYE.
