There are parts of his career that may be open to criticism, but those who knew him In the days of hla power are dis posed to overlook those qualities of his character which made of him at times an obnoxious tyrant. Bllly'a sway extended over a people Including two races. Both the conquering Americans and the In surgent Filipinos bowed meekly before his autocratic will. Billy was American la exactly what the little god Is doing, I born and reared, but it Is not on record Pltlral pcetacles. No Other city,' not even London, has so many beggars, religious and otherwise; nowhere can so many pitiful spectacles of deformity and distress be seen; nowhere la such gross and repulsive obscenity and sensuality practiced and all In the name of religion; nowhere are such sordid de ceptions practiced upon superstitious be lievers, and nowhere such gloomy, absurd and preposterous methods used for con soling sinners and escaping thu results of sin. Although Benares tn several respects Is the most Interesting city In India, and one of the most Interesting In the world. It Is also me most nuny, repulsive inu iur- VJldding. ' Few people care to remain here more than a day or two, although to the ethnologist and other students, to artists and others In search of th picturesque. It has more to offer than can be found else where tn the Indian empire. Benares Is aa old as Kgypt. It Is on of th oldest cities In existence. It was al ready famous when Rome was founded; even when Joshua snd hla trumpeters were surrounding the walls of Jericho. It Is the hope ot every believer In Brahmlnlsm to visit Benares and wash away his sins In th water of th sacred Ganges; the greatest blessing he can enjoy Is to die here; hence, the palaces, temples and lodging houses which line th river banks are filled with - the aged relattves and friend of their, owners and' with pilgrims who have come from all parts of India to wait with ecstatlo patience the summons of tho angel of death In order to go straight to heaven. . Saaetity of tho Oaagti, Nothing In all their religion Is so dear to devout Hludus as ths Ganges, Th mys terious cavern In the Himalayas which Is supposed to be the source ot the river is the moat sac ret place on earth. It Is th fifth head of Blva, and for 1,600 miles to It delta every inch of th banks Is haunted with gods and demons, and has been the no of events bearing upon the faith of two-thirds' ot th people of India. The most pious act, and one that counts more than any other to tho credit of a human aoul on the great books above. Is to make a pll gr Image from the source to the mouth of the Oanges. If you have read Kipling's story of "Kim," you will remember the anxiety of th old lama to find thla holy stream, and to follow Its banks. Pilgrims to Benares and other cities upon th Oan ges secure bottles of the precious water for themselves and send them to friends and kindred In foreign lands. No river In all the world la so worshiped, and to die upon Ita sacred banks snd to have one's body burned and his ashes borne away Into oblivion upon Its tawny current Is the highest aspiration of hundreds of millions c f people. The Oanges Is equally aacred to the Bud dhlst, and Benares Is associated more closely with the career of Buddha than any ether city. Twenty-nv hundred years ago Buddha preached his first sermon here, snd for ten oenturle or more It was the head quarters of Buddhism. Buddha selected It as th center of his missionary work, he secured the support ef Ita scholars, teach era and philosophers, and from here aent forth missionaries to China, Japan, Bur man. .Ceylos, the Malay Peninsula, 81am Thibet and other countries until half the human race accepted him as divine, his teachings as the law of God, and Benares as th' fountain of that faith.

For days the flrgs were half-masted, and some of th Insurgent leaders even sent in notes of sympathy. There was genuine mourning all ever the land. In Vigan especially th Borrow was deep, for the men there had fought under Law ton. Thslr thoughts turned toward old Billy, who had carried their dead leader through the worst campaign of the war. They untied him from th picket line and led him out Into th plaxa, and there gavs him an honorable discharge from ao tlve service, to com and go as hs might pleas about tha town, on government pen slon. Billy looked a bit bewildered a first, but presently started eft to explore the streets, and as he passed th men took off their well-worn campaign hats. After that you could see him wandering in day dream along the narrow streets of Vigan or tn the adjacent fields, sometimes stopping to browse In an abstracted sort of way; oomlng and going when and where h chose, Ilk th sacred oxen of Benares. At first Billy retained his simple, modest bearing. H rubbed noses with his old oomrades In the ranks and visited the I picket lines dally. He still greeted all oomers In his old spirit of democratic good reiiowahip, from the general down to the latest recruit In the rear ranks. F celiac Hla Oats. But there cam a change. Gradually It dawned on Billy' ponderous Intellect that he had become pretty much of a big gun. that he waan't an ordinary plug to be met with any day, and he decided to stand up for his social rank- He began by refusing to mess with th other horses. In thla he gained his point The men mad th mis take of submitting at once, and thus irre vocably bound themselves down to th rul ings of his tyrant wllL They gave him a separate feed stall. Then be Insisted on green grass mixed with oats twloe a day, and aa&ia ih boys bowed to hla will. Thenceforth a detail ot men had to hustle fed fur Billy dally. Thus he had them in his grip. After that they bad to humor hi every whim. It was not long before Billy made him self obnoxious to Americana and native alike. One morning he stalked into Com pany E"a mesa quarters Juat at mesa call. Th boys tried to persuade him that h had got Into the wrong plaoe, but Billy obstinately refused to take that point of view. In fact, he got quite Indignant, especially when be nosed about th big cauldron of hot soup, which he upset, and thereby spUt half the flimsy boards of the floor. He ended up by flopping down on a couple of cots whloh splintered beneath hla weight Ilk match boxes. When he finally departed, much disgusted, he left behind him a week's Job ot repairing. The natives mad their first mistake In offering Billy biu of brown sugar and tufts of choice turnip leaves. Finally he grew to consider these dainties aa his Just dues, and when they were not forthcom Ing at th moment he wanted them he did not hesitate to walk Into th atores and help himself, not only to sugar and tur nips, but to any other stock on hand that pleased his fancy. This sort of thing soon became so bad that whenever Billy waa seen approaching there would b a general scramble among the storekeepers to barricade their doors. and business would be suspended until ha had safely passed. Pet th Chlldrem. Only the children regarded Billy at all favorably. Sometime you eould aee th old chap stretched out under th shad of a spreading mango tree, with a dozen or I taor Uttl brown tots scramUlug vver his scraggy flank. Occasionally he would raise hla head as though in protest. Look here, yuu scamps," you might fancy him saying, "don t be too rough or I'll roll over on you. Hey, there, you mue biack Imp, leav my tall alone; It wasn't built for you to pulL Here, get away from my mane! I want to Bleep, ana now can I with you walking all over me?" Whereupon he would anort neseeiy, as though contemplating sanguinary ven geance, but It always ended In his sinking back with a helpless blink of hla eyes. Thus Billy paaed the tim In Vigan, tyr annizing all with whom he came In contact. until one day ther occurred the crowning event of hla life. Borne are Inclined, from a political point of view, to regard It as a lasting stain upon hla honor. They contend that, as an American born, as a protege of tho government, Billy should have conflned his moet Intimate friendships among nis own people. At least, h should not have fotmed the attachment ot bis life witn one of the people at war with his country. But- Bllly was too broad-minded to allow wars to Interfere with his friendships. At any rate. he began by striking up an acquaintance with Perlco de la Cruz, the 10-year-old son of a lieutenant in actlv aervlce m tne enemy's ranks. This chsnce acquaintance soon ripened Into deep friendship. The two becam in separable companions. When you saw Perloo turn a street corner you expected Billy, and sure enough h would follow, not far behind. Or if you aaw Billy's head protruding over a fence, you knew wher to find Perlco. When Perlco ate his meala on the steps of his mother's hut, Billy was there munching zacate. They went out for long tramps together, th puny brown boy usually seated on the veteran's broad shoul ders and holding to hla mane. No one slnos Lawton had dared to do that The two did pretty, much as they pleased walked through people's fences, over people's veg etable patches, stampeded people's poultry, and even sauntered over the lawn In front of the general's headquarters In spite of that great man's somewhat feeble protests. Billy and th Colonel. Th oolonel waa the only one who ver rose in active rebellion, but he was Ignobly aquelcheU. He waa holding a solemn re view of his troops one evening on the pa rude grounds. All was quiet, and it would have been a most impressive review It old Billy, with Perlco on hla back, hadn't atalked along Just then, passing between the colonel and the line of men at company front It is recorded that th colonel swore a great oath. That may have attraoted Billy's attention, for he seemed to recog nize the colonel as an old friend. He went up to him, and the colonel, to save his dignity, had to retreat to the bandstand. Protest was of no avail. If you spoke to them, Perlco simply shrugged his shoul ders, and said "No sabe." and Billy twirled au ear or winked an eye. There waa little satisfaction In ' that Then you felt that they chuckled together after you were gone. But tyrants are only mortal. Thee two were no exceptions. On day a yellow flag appeared before th house In Vigan In which Perlco lived. It was the beginning ot the fearful epl- demlo of smallpox when half of the fam ilies of the town and province were affected. when the saffron rag hung in listless fold before many a hut and house. They said that the Insurgent officer had brought the disease In from his camp, where It raged unchecked, on on of hla fee ret visits. The boy Perlco tossed deiliiously on a bamboo cot. while his sad-faced mother and a sad-faced aunt nursed him. A sentry was stationed to warn people away from the quarantined family. Billy calmly Ig nored him, and walked to the open window, but it was too high for him to look in. How Billy felt. Just how much he missed his little comrade, w never knew, tor Billy's long face wore an expreealon of aorrow habitually anyhow. But ther was an atmosphere of - painful abstraction about him when he munched his evening allowance ot oats. After a few days he ceased to haunt the little hut in the outskirts of the town, and then we thought he had forgotten. He even took up more with other children. In a general sort of way, but not with any one In particular. ' Qrchard & Wilhelm Garpet Go.

Even th American soldiers missed the tiny figure, and when it was reported that Lieutenant d la Crua had been seen com ing Into town one evening nobody troubled te report the matter to headquarters. It was the eighth day of Perico'a Illness. The sentry In front of th hut paced sleep ily to and fro, or thoughtfully contem plated th shad of th nearby mango tree. Suddenly he was startled by a scream In side the house, and the next moment the form of a child shot by him down th street "Stop hlml Stop him! Stop him! Senor Americano! walled the distracted mother from the door of th hut. But It was too lata. With frantic screams and wild ges ticulations, the delirious Perloo ran down th road, naked aa he had oome Into th world, down Into the Calle de Banta In nacla. Into th Escolta, th main street, and turned up towards the plaza. Women screamed from windows and th side walks, men shouted, but none dared to seise the afflicted boy. Suddenly there was a commotion further down the Esoolta. Th crowd scattered, and through its center old Billy cam pelt ing, answering the boy's wild shouts with a sucoeeslon ot hoarse whlnnlea. At th comer of th Call del Obispo Perloo turned down toward the market, wher th atreet enda, with Billy pounding along not fifty yards behind. Into the market gate th boy disappeared, causing the wildest confusion among the throng of buyers and sellers. The market Is a square walled In by atone, with a door n each aid of the quadrangle. The crazed child shot into one gate and out ot another, and fell In a fit In the street beyond. Billy burst Into the crowded market to late to see where his little comrade had gone. For a moment he stood In Its center under th tiled roof, among the basketa and tables loaded with wares, whll th people, American soldiers and Filipino men and women alike, poured out of th four gates. Just what passed through Bllly'a equine Intellect at that moment wilt never be known, but evidently he hastily concluded that they were hiding Perlco from him be hind some of th baskets or atslla. He began a systematlo search, overturning and crushing earthenware Jars, baakets of eggs and fruits, bamboo Joints of milk and racks of dry goods. The vendors had sense enough to get out and leav their possessions to fate. Billy had the entire market to himself; frantically be pounded around and floundered about among the obstacles. w..
