l:o0 o'clock this morning two of the
smallest urchins aiinut whom there has

court were brought to police headquar

They had started out about ll:o0 o'clock
for the express purpose of burcfularieing

tics came into Gallup, this ceunty, from
the Orec r and Vabash company's ranches
in Apache county, At i.., in search of a
band of seventy-eight horses which had
been seen and recognized by cowmen in
ths hands of a party of Nayajo?, and
WiTP bcin ":riven in tiie direction of the
reservation. One of the Greer boys came
across the country to the railroad and to
this place to head them oif, and from
here wmt out to tho agency to confer
with Agent Patterson. On hia return he
reported that tlu agent gave him no sat
isfaction, stating that as the horses and
thieves wero off the reservation he had
no power to act, and that the owners
would have to depend on civil authori
ties to capture and punish the thieve?.
A party of cowru-n are on the trail of

dealt with according to the most approv

Kenoritas Tho C'untom of C'liuperouH,
I'rfaldeiit Itocrau and II in Wife.
Here, at the cajiital, and, indeed, through
out all Honduras, the president's set consti
tutes tho head anil front of society proper.
The coterie of "leaders" revolving around
this gallant soldier anil well beloved execu
tive, though small, is eminently aristocratic.
There is, despite tho republican form of gov
ernment, much thnt savors of royalty and
suggests a court. As to precedence, the cab
inet ofiicers and their families very natu
rally follow the president. Without ap
proaching in the least what is called "a
ladies' man," Gen. Bogran is fitted to shine
in social circles as well as to govern wisely,
An educated, a traveled man, he is also of gen
tle birth. That is to bay, ho not only knows
that he had a grandfather, but his great
great-grandparents are a matter of actual
knowledge. But then, all Honduranians are
fortunate in this respect. Thero is no par
venu element in the country. There is no
nouveau riche class to push, pry or other
wise maneuver to "get into society." There
are only those who are socially qualified, and
the poor the ieasaiitry, so to speak, who
are happy enough in their own way.
There is no great wcallu in the country,
and in consequence no superb establishments
are kept up. The best people live quite
simply, though servants are kept to as great
an cstent as in the United States, if not to a
greater. No matter how many children may
bo ia a family each must bavo its own nurse
or governess. But, on tho whole, peace and
comfort appear to bo more sought after than
Iomp and show. There is little thought of
striving for social supremacy. Tho Honduras
girls are too well bred to d;splay envy or
jealousy, even though they eing but hu
man should at times feel the pangs of either.
They are all fond enough of Paris drossesj
but if any one of them has on especially
sweet thing imiorted her dear COO friends
are not going to turn green with despair.
They are far likelier to admire it in a well
bred way, smile tenderly, consider carefully,
and presently interest papa to do his part to
ward ordering something sweeter for them
selves. HANDSOME SEXOMTAS.
Some of the senoritas aro wry handsome.
Tlie.'e is 'some difference naturally between
the two tyjes; the daughters of Spaniards,
or cksceiuk-nts of Spaniards, and the great-grcnt-grtrnt-grauddaughters
cf tho mighty
Aztec; warrior chiefs. A difference cLieiiy
cf externals, of height, complexion, figure.
But all are alike in the gentleness of bearing,
the quiet dignity that is so attractive.
The custom of chaperons exists of courre,
but k-su rigorously tinm in tho United States.
It is hardly necessary for mamma or mam
ma's representative to 'glare"' uixa theyoimg
men, when tho girls aro so sslf -protected.
Iiniccd at the very last ball at the palace I
raw n young couple quite by themselves nil
tar: "ugh supper. They were not as yet be
trothed, but the l.)vo making was a most in
teresting and tender littlo comedy lor one
watching it out cf the corner of bis eye, so to
sjak. Tho Honduranians 'even these fore
most in society are essentially mi innocent
minded people. Immorality u hardly known.
There avo no scandals. Tho newsM,;K2rs are
clc-a sheets. Perhaps that is oua reason.
1 jo young men ore steady, as a rule. Dissi
pation is hardly known. The greatest horror
was felt and expressed concerning tin inci
dent of a few nights since, when some one
who had looked too of tt-n on the wino when
ii was red, created a slight disturbance at
the theatre and was summarily ejected lie
was a stranger, however.
Tho president sets tho example of a true
gentleman. Ho might in somo respects )jo
likened to the lamented Chester Arthur. It
is a matter of regret to many that the lady
of tho palace, the Senora Bogran, is unable
to spend more time at the capital She is a
very accomplished woman speaking live
languages. But she is also a most devoted
mother, with several young children, and is
not over strong physically. This charming
woman spends the most of her time at the
country seat of the family, at Santa Barbara
not far from the shore of a beautiful lake.
Paul Rochester in New York Home Journal.
Prevention of Diphtheria.
Curative treatment of diphtheria is admit
tedly so unreliablo that the medical profes
sion listens with interest to every suggestion
of preventing this terrible disease. At a re
cent meeting of the New York Academy of
Medicine this subject formed the staple of the
evening's discussion. Following is a resume
of the principal recommendations: In a city
with densely populated districts the supervis
ion of plumbing and tho erection of air
shafts in tenements are useful supplementary
sanitary measures against diphtheria, and
physicians should instruct the people in such
matters as often as opportunity presents.
Overheating of school rooms and dwellings
should be most emphatically denounced as
Isolation of the sick should be explained
and insisted upon. The management of iso
lation houses for the poor should be such as
to readil3 gain their confidence. Enlarged
tonsils should bo reduced. Carious teeth
should bo removed or filled promptly; the feo
of the poor therefor should be small, or noth
ing. Parents should inspect their children's
mouths and throats each day before they go
to school. Children should learn to garglo at
an early age. Children saffering from ap?
parently 6imple pore throat should not attend
school until wc!L Kissing upon the lips
should to forbidden. Children old enough to
gargle should be taught to do so after each
meal with a weak solution of an antiseptic
chemical, and in your.g children a few drops
should be dropped into the nostrils. Chicago

COWARD OR HERO?
EVERY MAN PROBABLY HAS THE IN
NATE CAPACITY TO BE EITHER,
And He Is Oulte Likely to i:e the Otlirr
on Orcutiou, if C'lrcumtaiiceit I aver.
Heroes Are Of IMflTereut llretiU mid
An Indian lad at school recently produced
an essay on the subject of courage, which
had, as the youug ladies say, "quito u suc
cess"' in the way of circulation. If that suck
ing brave had lived from iialf a century to
a century ago ho would not have written,
though ho might have acted, tho wirt cf
moral courage of which he sjteahs. Nom
people say that I have Imxjii in forty -two
lights of one sort or another. At any rate, I
have been under lire at leabt ou twenty dif
ferent occasion::, and my exjierienco leads me
to the belief that though any -man has tho in
nate capacity to be a hero, every man is
more or less of a coward, and most men more
rather than less at the start. Every old
soldier despises shell fire; yet if any old
soldier were to t-11 mo that hi did not feel
awfully like either fainting or lieins sick i't
the first shell wh! '.!:." '. . ,
I would tell that j.iuu, if lie were nmiilkr"
than myself, and there v.iis good reason to
bclievo l.o had no revolver in his hip pocket,
that he trilled with facts. Nevertheli'ss, bo
it said, I have seen Siieh a man daring to look
calmly at a ubell bursting close- on his si::is
U r hand, and yet ducking at the "t ifiiing'' of
a conical bullet, though if he kne w enough
to tell an oyster from a clam he must have
Ih-'cii aware that when any one hears the "f-f-f-w"
of a bullet that buliet is far wst him,
and incapable of finding its billet in him un
less it ricochets like a boomerang.
The man who liolts today may tomorrow
earn the Victoria cross in the English service
or the cross of St. Gtorgo in that of the czar.
There are plenty of instances of men con
demned for cowardice who have faced the
platoon that shot them without a quiver of
the lip or the flutter of a ulse. Somo peo
ple's courage is better on the start; indigna
tion, impulse, revenge all play their part in
this sort of courage. But tho truer courage
is calmly to faeo a danger that is realized.
Carey, who deserted the Prince Imperial in
Zuluiand in a moment of panic, might have
resolutely stormed a broach in a happier hour.
Many a man who proudly wears the bronzo
cross "for valor1' in the British army prob
ably wonders how the inspiration came upo:i
Lim to earn it.
Hearing somo firing one day, in central
Asia, I and thrco others v ho had been cut f r
a:i afternoon ride jumped a little river into
the camp and ielted away down its main
street ia the direction of the shots. As we
passed headquarters a general ofUccr begged
us to stay with him and get the men turned
out in tho canqi of the nearest line regiment,
as he "had feared a surprise from the town
all along." One of the part3' stepped bo
eauso ho was on that general's particular
stair, but the rest, unbuttoning their holsters,
galloped on. Five poor fanatics, carrying
rusty blades under their sheepskin coats, had,
as chaplain observed, "prayed themselves
silly" in a mosque and then had lost their faw
remaining wits through hasheesh, so they
ught immortality and at least ended mor
tality. This was all there was of it, and the
old general was vastly reserved that night.
Yet that same old general had been in tho
Crimean trenches and in the mutiny fight
ing in India, and he showed he was no cow
ard nine months later. Was he a coward
that day the Ghazis from the bazaar attackc 1
tki camp? Why, certainly. But ho was a
coward on impulse and a hero on calcula
tion. "Forty men to lend the sortie!" ho
said on one occasion; "ten will be killeL"
Four hundred volunteered and thirty were
killed. But the general who was inspired
months before, by the idea omne ignotimi
pro magnifico led that sortie all the samennd
did not gain the death he sought. One of tho
bravest ofiicers I ever know had been mor
tally wounded in tho leg and was hoisted ou
to a camel. Presently he cried, "Take me
down, they are shooting at me!" So loss of
blood and physical pain ia this case turned a
hero into a coward.
The beau sabreur is tho popular ideal of a
hero, but is he the finest hero after all?
Skobelelf the younger shone in both phase?
of the character, but in his heart lo
cherished more the thought of his tenacity
on the Green bills at Plevna than his dash
into Khiva, or hi3 swim under fire across tho
Danube, or his planned movement to take
the central redoubt on tho Tehataldja lines
at Constantinonle. On the other hand,
Mehemet Bey, "the captain," as the Turks
called him, prided himself more on his
successful dash up the slopes of Kizil Tepe in
Armenia than on his heroic defense of Yahni
ainst an apparently overwhelming force of
Russians, or even upon his defense of one of
tho forts at Ardabau, for which the genroaT
Muscovites mentioned him with approval in
their dispatches, none tho less readily, per
haps, because he was a Pcle in the Ottoman
service. Yes; heroes are of different breeds
and natures, but nono the less heroes, what
ever their manifestation of the heroic quality.
It is a curious illustration of the absuruit v.
not of the special decorations for heroisH,
but cf the popular appreciation of them, that
neither of the two most widely circulated of
British annua) books cf reference takes the j
slightest notice either of tho Humane society j
medals for life saving or of the Albert medal i
for heroism in civil life, while a whole page j
devoted to the ictoria Cross, i et it was '
said by tho great teacher "greater love hath ;
no man than this, than a man lay down hi
life for his friends." How much less can is !
be to lay down or desperately risk one's life '
for a stranger "Cuilrathen" in New York;
Wasteful Slethcd of BnraiEg Coal.
An interesting calculation hs been
lately made by Profosor Rogers, o
Washington. He tells ns that the dy
namic power of a single pound of good
steam coal is equivalent to the work of a
man for one day; three tons of the samo
coal will represent a man's labor for
twenty years; and one tquare mile of a
seam of coal having a depth of four fec-t
only will represent as much work as 1,000. -000
men can perform in twenty years.
Such calculations as these may serve to
remind ns how very wasteful onr nictliccis
cf burning fncl must be, in spite of all
that lias been done by engineers in tho
way of economy. Chambers' JournaL
