dian fighters in our uiniy, -whero thero uro

Indian and the regular inctli'xl of lighting,

XX'uyne to man-h hy both un iieii and close
order, so as to waiter, und yet keep his men
within easy rallying distaueo of each othei,
that a sunin.so may not watter them, etc.
About eleven years ago I had a talk with
Gen. Crook in Han Franciseo, iu which
nsketl him to explain his system of ojierating
uaiiuit tho Apache Indians in Arizona, w hom
ho hail just defeated. He told me that he
either took Apaches, or kindred Indians
whom he had won over, and had them to
trail the Uuid he meant to lilit, und that ho
mid his soldiery followed a day'3 march or
more Ijehind, traveling rhiefly hy night, sons
to escape the desert heat and sleeping under
tin; siif;e-linish, or wherever shade could be
afforded by leaf or lull. His crafty spies lo
cated the Indians and brought him word, and
he generally fell upon 1 hem by surprise. Ho
udiirU-d this policy With in Oregon and in
Arizona, and pave peace to those si'ttlements
for a long ienod of years.
The Apaches, however, like a snake, have
many lives, las-aitse th-y are divided into
muiiy Lands. A x:ortion of them were origi
nnlJy innguitiii-ntly moimtx-d and armed, and
raided into the middle of Mexico from the
i-.io'.intnius of Arizona. They were disposed
to l; friendly to the Americans, but in tho
course of time their predatory system influ-
oneed the settlers, and brought on collisions.
So severe wero the Apacho tortures of their
prisoners that bands of their kindred were
massacred while in military camps bv the
settlers. After Crook broke up the old iiands
of Apaches, there were still roving guerrilla
elements, which appeared to lie reinforced
from the interior of Mexico. But these Indi
niis made no jieace with the Mexicans, their
more ancient enemies, and consequently tho
two governments, looking toward the tran
quility of the railroad travel now extending
through these very regions, resolved to co-
Crook was tho genius of the exeditIon
lie is cue ' those men who is never behind-
p.ml r"- ..an!, desperate M'rvice, havnng a
. for war, and probably a respect-
ai.. .:iiu'u to procure promotion even dur
ing these times of peace. By his operations
against the Apaches in 1S7I he was advanced
from a lieutenant-colonel or colonel to a
brigadier-generalship, skipping a good many
oflicers who thought that promotion ought
not to dejieinl on enterprise. Ready to win
another star or two, go up in the list of lead
ing colonels -r genial brigadiers, Crook has
taker, gladly upon himself tho hazardous op-
jiortuuity of a disuuelively foreign war,
though waged under the consent of the in
vaded government. No wonder that jeal
ousy has sprung up on the Mexican side of
the line among those drones who publish
country newspapers fnd find it more easy to
arouse Mexican jealousy than to suppress
Indian outrages. The government very well
knew what man to rely upon t!:e most for
this hazardous work; and if Crook's life
should be sjiared and victory attend him I
apprehend that he will go very high in the
army list, and pet-haps in tho course of time
be Sheridan s successor.
Sheridan himself won his prominence by a
restless, magnificent military enterprise. He
prevail"l on Grant to give him aggressive
opportunities against Grant's own views, and
he converted the war in the east from a series
of drawn battles and gentlemanly neutralities
to a constant thumping, until he extirpated
Early, broke Lee's lines, and chased the re
bellion to Appomattox court house. He
would bo a pretty mean American of any
party who would take a man like Fhu fohen
dan from the head of tho army after theso
exhibitions of his genius. "XX'hile we have
several gallant Indian fighters, we have no
man who has made the figure on the plains
and in. tho deserts of Gen. Crook.
George Crook entered "West Point in 1S43,
so that ho is I judge, about 51 years old. He
was put out in California as soon as he grad
uated, and served at once against the In
dians whom he has uow known for thirty
years. He was wounded with an arrow
twenty-five years ago. The rebellion called
him away from eight years of Indian encoun
ters to the contest of civilized forces, and he
began in AX est lrginia, was wounded there,
was promoted for gallant services at An
tietara, then served in the western armies at
the head of a division of cavalry, was at
Chuaniauga, broke up tho guerrillas, went
on several raids, served under Sheridan, and
was taken prisoner by his subsequent broth-or-fo-law
most inhospitably at Cumberland,
but very soon released. Ho was in all Sheri
dan's great battles, coii;i.:e:u!ed all the cav
aliy of the Army of the Potomac for awhile,
and was iu the big pursuit to Appomattox.
At the close of the war he was a lieutenant
colonel, anil from that time to this has been
the eagle of Indian fighters.
AYhen I saw" him last he was a long, lean
man, lnosely put together, with a rather shy,
strange face, as if he had partly turned into
an IudiaiL Ho is an Ohio boy. Anything
wild seems tame to Crook. Ho wants no
friends, and can do with very little family.
During the war he became much interested
in Mary Dalley, a young lady of good family
living in western Maryland, but from Vir
ginia people living about Moorefield. Her
people sympathized with the south, and sli9
had a brother a member of McNeil's semi
guerrilla band. TMs young scapegrace, find
ing that Gen. Crook and Gen. Kelly stopped at
ids f ather's hotel in Cumberland the former
paying attention to his sister slipped into
that hotel and captured the two generals in
the midst of their troops, forced them out of
their lines at the point of the pistol, and took
them to Richmond. Crook was soon released,
probably through the intercession of his cap
tor. He afterwards married Miss Dalley,
and she has been with him in a good many
strange places in the west. His young captor
afterwards became a sutler at his camp, not
wholly to Crook's liking, for he was very
sensitive about connecting his reputation
with commercial schemes.

One of tho most interesting features in tho

the Into Gen. Dix, is tho following account of,
the order which made, him famous. The lu-
tory m me iojiioiis ctu paten rcierruig to uie

On4 account has been published in the cilition
of his speeche. Tho other, in tho form of
letter to Mrs. VVin. T. lilodgctt, of New
York, is here printed for tho first time. Tho
following is an extract from this letter.
"I received from Mr. Jones, on tho 2th of
January, the dispatch published on page 4 10,
vol. 2, of my Kjieocl.ei, udvisinir me that
Capt. Ihohhwoo.1, of the revenue cutter Mc
Clelland, refused fo obey my order. It was
aljout 7 o'clock in the evening. 1 had dined,
and was at the department, as i:tual, trans
acting busin.s. The moment I read it I
wrote tho following order:
" 'Tell Lieut. Caldwell to arrest Capt.
Iireshwood, assume command of tho cutter.
and ol.ey the onlor I gave through you. If
Cant. Hreshwood. after arrest, undertakes to
interfeix; with tho command of the cutter,
tell Lieut. Caldwell to consider him as a mu
tineer, and treat him uccordingly. If any
one attempts to haid down the American flag,
shoot him on tho spot. Jon.v A. Dix.

"Not a word was altered ; but the original
was handed to tho clerk charged with the
custody of my telegraphic disiatches, copied
by him, and tho copy signed by mo and sent
to its destination. I said nothing
to tho president in regard to it,
though ho was with mo every even
ing until Friday, when the mem
bers of tho cabinet were all assembled, and the
president was aljout to call our attention to
tho business of the day. I said to him: "Mr.
President. I fear we havo lost some of our
revenue cutters.' 'Ahf said he, 'how is that?
I then told him what had occurred down to
the receipt of the disjiatch from Mr. Jones in
forming me that Capt. Breshwood refused to
obey my order. 'Well,' said he, 'what did
you dof I then repeated to him slowly and
distinctly tho order I had sent. When I came
to the words, 'Shoot him on the spot,' he
fctni-ted suddenly, and said with a good deal
of emotion, 'Did you write that f 'No, sir,' I
said, 'I did not write it, but I telegraphed it.'
He made no answer; nor do I remember that
he ever referred to it afterwards. It was
manifest, as I had presupposed, that the order
would never have been given if I had con
sulted him. It only remains for me to say that
tho order was not the result of any premedi
tation, scarcely of any thought. A conviction
of the right course to bo taken was as instan
taneous as a flash of light. It touched
the public mind and heart strongly, no doubt,
because the blood of all patriotic men was
boiling with indignation at tho humiliation
which we were enduring.
A Xew Danser.
New York Times.
A most painful incident has happened in
St. Joseph, Mo. A young lady moving in the
first circles of society playfully bit a j'oung
gentleman in the arm. There had been a
mock quarrel between the two as to the pos
session of a piece of jewelry, and the young
gentleman went to his room charmed with
the young lady's repartee, and more than ever
convinced that for true refinement, as well as
for brilliant wit, the young ladies of Missouri
are unrivaled. To his great surprise and
horror the bite proved to be poisonous, and
the young man narrowly escaped losing his
life. This incident naturally reminds the
local Missouri press of another young man
who was playfully bittej a year ago in the
thumb by another fair Missourian, aud who
thereupon died in great agony. The inference
that the bite of a Missouri girl is poisonous
and may be fatal is irresistible, and when we
consider the manners and customs of Mis
souri girls as revealed by the two stories just
quoted, it is really a wonder that any male
Missourian who has mingled much in society
About a year ago M. Pasteur, the eminent
French physician, discovered by experiment
that small animals inoculated with the saliva
of a human being die almost as quickly as
those which have been bitten by the cobra.
Comparing the result of these experiments with
tho tragedies which have been caused by the
careless use of the teeth on the part of Missouri
girls, it becomes only too probable that all
girls aro poisonous. That this lias been only
recently discovered is doubtless due to the
fact that, outside of tho first circles of Missouri,
society girls rarely if ever bite. In circum
stances where a Missouri girl would grace
fully bite a companion of the other sex tho,
average girl would content herself with play
fully tapping him with a fan. Any prudent
person will shudder with horror when hi
thinks how near he must havo been at soma
timo in his life to the deadly teeth of a girl,
and realizes that ho owes his life simply to
the fact that the girl abstained from biting
If girls become generally aware that they
can inflict death with their upper incisors as
surely as the rattlesnake can slay its victim
with its tings, what safety will there be for
any human being who does not completely
isolate himself from girls?

It might be well in closing to say a word i
defense of myself.
Tho varied and uniformly erroneous no
tions expressed recently as to my plans for
the future naturally call for some kind of an
expression oa this point over my own signa
ture. Iu the first place it devolves upon me
to regain my health in full if it takes fourteen
3-ears. I shall not, therefore, "publish a
book," "prepare an youmorous lecture,"
"visit Florida," "probate the estate of Lydia
E. Pinkham, deceased," nor make any other
grand break till I have once more the
gurgling laugh of other days.
In the meantime let it be remembered that
my home is in Laramie City and that unless
the common council pass an ordinanca
against it, I shall return in July if I can
make the trip between snowstorms and evade

A good story is told of the wife of an
American diplomatist who is fond of calling
upon the celebrities in every place vrhich she
visits. Being in Florence some time ago, she
expressed her intention of calling upon
"Ouida, the well-known novelist. Her
friends attempted to dissuade her, saying
that "Ouida" had a violent prejudice against
Americans. Undeterred, the female diplo
matist called at the novelist's house and was
met by "Ouida," who said: "I must tell you
that I exceedingly dislike Americans." "I
am very much surprised to hear that," was
the reply, "for they are the only peopls who

Never in the annals of London was it so
gay and gorgeous as this very week. Roj-alty
is everywhere. The pimee and princess oi
Wales, all the royal dukes and duchesses and
their children are in London all tho days and
all the nights. They are driving in the parks,
visiting the galleries and various exhibitions,
and some of tnem are at the theatres nightly.
London has increased in population a mill
ion souls in twenty j-ears, or since tL death
of Prince Albert, and it is said that in tLese
two decades it has doubled it3 wealth !
Society has been kept rather quiet since
the widowhood of the queen, and this year
society has burst out, as with a rebound, and
life knows an excitement, and is seen ap
pointed with a luxury and Iuxuriousness
which never before in such degree have char
acterized it. The manufacturers and shop
keepers are bitterly complaining of hard
times. Business is greatly depressed, and
there aro aching hearts and starving bodies,
but ono would not suspect this dreary side
of life to witness all this display of wealth
and extravagance seen on all hands in Lon
don this week. The roadways are full
of most magnificent equipages; the parks are
full ; the causeways are crowded. It is diffi
cult to get standing-room at the principal
theatres. Tickets for the operas are secured
six weeks in advance. The fashionabIe"res
taurants are crowded v?ith fashionable diners
from 6 to 11 nightly, and, as if by sympathy,
tho gorgeousness of life this week in London
is a reSex of all tho brilliant display at Mos

How Foreigner are Fearfully VI-liuiizet--The
Department at the Mercy of the Her
Corves. Boston Transcript.
But unfortunately the stipulated amount o
wages hi not all that a norvant receive. T
lie sure, no food is provided for them (except
ing what they help themselves to). The coo
is really tho head of the houwu. He doet
nearly all the marketing, and tho amount ol
"squeeze money'' he gets ii not small. Just
here is where tho difficulty comes, and it il
one that cannot te ohviutod. The merchant
help their own jco;ilu in preference to for-,
eigners, who sometimes are fearfully victim
ized. 1 pride myself on lieing prudent and
economical, and on holding my servants
some what in check. Generally a family al
lows a cook to use his o-.vn judgment about
the foKl for the table. Accounts are squared
up once a week, or sometimes once a day.
But the cook does not go into particulars.
He will simply read over his items and th
corresjionding amounts, and the mistress lx
not know whether the roast of U-f weighed
live pounds or six ; whether thero wore ten
or twenty pounds of potatoes, etc.
In order to keep things in their own hands,
a few enterprising people are doing their own
marketing. But does it pay f Thero are nin
chances in ten that your cook will leave you
at once. Not oidy that, but ho will keep any
other cook from coming to you. Then, as a
general thing, one cannot buy as cheaply ai
a native can, in spite of their squeeze money.
There are two markets in our foreign settle
ment, and the dealers ask tho same prices to
cook or mistress. At present I goto them
and do all my marketing. I know how many
pounds of meat I bring, and also the price.
But there is not much satisfaction in that.
Thero is not much doubt but what my cook
gets a percentage on all that I buy.
If you go out into tho city to buy, unless
you know just w liat au article is worth, you
will mast likely pay dearly for it. The na
tives seem to think that every foreigner is a
mint or a mine.
I once had occasion to buy a certain arti
cle, and thought that I would first let my
cook price it for me. He brought back answer
that tho cheapest prieo was thirty yen. I
went to the shop and was charged thirty-eight
yen for tho samo article, nor would tho dealer
lower his price until I told him that my cook
told me that the price was but thirty yen.
The price was lowered at once to that figure.
Query How much did my cook "squeeze f'
Another instance. I havo had occasion to
get a number of little jobs done at a black
smith's place. I always make it a point to
pay all .suc h bills at onco, requiring the man
to bring a written, receipted bill. My servant
brought me these, so you can imagine my
surprise, when tho servant left my employ,
to have bill after bill presented to me for
liaj-ment. No one, however, pressed me
in the least, but said that if tho man had
left mo it was all right It appears as
if the dealers were careless, but they
aro not. When a servant leaves ono
man, he immediately commences work for j
another; and tho last master has to pay for
all his new servant's debts. A little amount
will be added to every job he gets done. We
are greatly at the mercy of our servants. If
we are bargaining with any one before a ser
vant, he simply "tips the wink" to the dealer,
and we are "sold." If one persists in trading
at a different place from that recommended
by a servant, rest assured that the nemesis
will surely come.
This is where the cost comes in living
among a people who are strangers to you,
and whoso language you imperfectly under
stand. If ouo keeps a team, he is obliged to
have a groom or "betto," as ho is called.
This man must run ahead of tho carriage to
clear the road. The law does not require him
to run with a saddle horse. Thi3 individual
would feel grossly insulted if j-ou should ask
him to do a little garden work. In fact, ono
servant will do but one kind of work, and
generally he is very, very slow in doing that.
A Japanese is seldom in a hurry; there is
plenty of time in which to do his work. A
curious fact concerning servants is that, ac
cording to our ideas, men and women inter
Another View of The 'Masher" ques
tion. Chicgo Letter in Courier Journal.
A great deal is said from time to time in
the various newspapers of Chicago and other
large cities regarding the annoyance, and
even insult, to ladies on tho street alone or in
couples from the class of men who have
nothing better to do than to stand on street
corners, in front of theatres and saloons, anil
at tho entrances of lurge retail establish
ments and staro at passers by. Complaints
are long and loud against them, and ojien let
ters are written to editors by indignant
husbands, fathers and brothers regarding
the outrage to society in permitting those
pests to encumber the pavements. To bo
sure, the man is contemptible, indeed, who
has neither occupation nor ambition save to
be a loafer. He is an object not only for
contempt, but for pity. But as to his "in
sults" and "impertinences," tho newspaper
idea is a mistaken one. In conversation with
a young lady of prepossessing, and even strik
ing appearance, upon this very subject, she
made the following emphatic statement: "I'd
just like to know why everybody has got so
much to say about mashers. I never saw
one, and I know I am as much down town
shopping and one thing and another as any
ladv. There may be men on tho corners
staring at people, but I never saw one staring
at me. I feel that I am not called upon
to find out whether some one is looking
at me or not, and I believe my experience is
just the same as that of any other lady who
does not desire to invite attention."
The lady who has the self-possession and
the self-respect to go along about her business
and manifest no curiosity as to the intentions
cwe w ho may be idling along the streets,
fmui - granting the rare exceptions find har-
self singularly free, on tne streets of Chicago
at least, from molestation.
Hwapplns Dollars at the Bar.
A man, evidently a stranger in this part of
the country, entered a saloon on Main street,
threw down an American dollar, and called
for a drink. The bar-keeper waited on him,
and handed back a Mexican dollar. The man
looked first at the dollar and then at the bar
keeper, and then in a tone of surprise he
asked: "Is this all right, stranger T The
bar-keeper answered in the affirmative. The
man gazed around in point-blank amazement
"Is that the way you do business in this coun
try f ho asked. Again he was answered in
the affirmative. "Stranger," said the man,
"I'm going to stay here, I've been hunting
for this town, lo, these many years. This is
the first place I ever saw where a man could
swap dollars and get a drink to boot I'm go

Development of the Fittest.
A German writer has recently shown that
the "first-born of the first-born" reach ma
turity at an earlier age than those of subse
juent birth. That is, the first calf, colt and
lamb develop a little more rapidiy han did
their parents, or than will their own brother
and sisters. If the separation be kept up for
l number of generations, the difference often

TheSnez Canal aiewer.
Pall Mall Gazette.
The Suez Canal, which has long bean fa
miliarly described as the ditch through the
desert, is now, it seems, in a fair way of be
coming an open and stagnant sewer. The
stations on its banks are drained into its wa
ters. It is never flushed, there is no tide, and
the stench is becoming intolerable. Diarrhoea
and sickness prevail on board vessels de
tained in the canal, and as detentions are in
creasing in number and duration, the matter
is 1 leconiing serious. M. Do Lesseps must be
stir himself, or this nuisance will constitute a
serious addition to the long array of count:
in the indictment against bis monopoly, by
wnich English ship-owners aro preparing to
support their demand for a second canal.
