A IiliAVK WOMAN.
In tlio autumn of 1ST7 a portion of tho
Capo Colony known us Uulcknlaud had
1k'u In considerable ferment, and tho
iirts, ufter smoldering for some time, had
Lrokcti out in tha Humes of rebellion and
war. Tlio fierce tri!e who inhabited thin
country from tho first conquest by tho
Enrlibh iu IHSA bore tho yoke of thralldom
with no crood trraco, and had on nioro
than one occasion sitiro that timo broken
out In revolt against their conquerors,
and as many petty breaches of disciplino
and good behavior had gono unpunished,
had at length thrown down tho gauntlet
to England and commenced hostilities by
a Ftidden ami violent attack upon her
native allies, tho Fingres, an adjoin
ing tribe. A call to arms was made by
the colonial authorities, aud as pooii as
forces could be organized they were sent
with all haste to the front to chock these
savages in their career of rapine and
11 under. It is during the time that passed
between the breaking out of the wur and
tho arrival of troops to the rescue of the
scattered white population in this rebel
lious district that the following episode
took place.
Situated about fifteen miles from Ibeka,
a small native village and in the Idutche
reserve, was a lonely mission station,
comprising a small chapel, a house and a
few native huts. Hero it was that a
member of the Church of England Mis
sionary society carried on his Tabors and
Roi'ht to turn theso savages from their
ways of darkness to those of light. The
family besides the minister consisted of
his wife and three small children, the
eldest a girl aged 12 and two boys, aged
respectively 10 and 7. besides which were
two native female servants.
At the time of the attack by the Kaffirs
tipon the Fingres the missionary Mas
away from home attending to his religious
duties at a neighboring village. The first
news of tho rising that reached his wife
was of a dreadful massacre that had
taken place by the Kaffirs near Ibeka, in
which the proprietor of a 6toro and his
family haa been murdered by a band of
these bloodthirsty warriors after a stub
born resistance, and the storo looted and
burnt. Tlio poor woman was for tho mo
laent paralyzed with fear as to what would
be the fate of her husband, far from home
and unarmed, and in tho midst of theco
relentless foes, and also what would be
tho fato for herself and her children if an
attack was mado upon them. The first
night was passed in anxious watching and
W waiting and hoping against hope that her
husband might return, though she knew
that unless warning had reached him lu
timo he must bo ere now surrounded.
Tlio morning dawned without any event
tt irujor; at ice having occurred, and the day
wore :i and no sign of either friend or
fiiemy was seen. Another night passed
a-ni .viotlier dawn broke, and with it camo
tc-j-riMe news. A friendly native who had
be:-u f raveling on during the night re
pr: -d to oue of the servants that the
lien "s at Qui nt ana had cruelly butchered
thi. missionary is a drunken frenzy, turn
- ing a deaf ear to his entreaties to cpare
him who (had done them no harm, and
that ho had died after enduring terrible
torture, asking pardon for his murderers.
The shock was terrible to tLe afllicted
wife, but tho instinct of the mother
arose within her for the preservation of
her children. She assumed command of
tho little garrison aud set herself about
victualing it to withstand a siege if neces
sary. Everything was brought In frora
the chapel and stored in the house, tho
windows and doors were barricaded with
bags of mealies (corn), and anything
that came to hand that would serve to
turn a spear or stop a bullet. A plentiful
supply of water was brought in from tho
6 1 ream, and lastly all the available arms
of tho quondam fortress were turned out.
loaded and put In readiness at some small
l'Htpholes that had been left for the pur
pose. A friendly native went out to recon
jioiter, and about 10 o'clock returned with
the startling information that a band of
about fifty men, on foot and on horse
back, were making their way across the
.plain in the direction of the station, and
were then about three miles distant, com
ing on at a leisurely pace, but f ully armed.
Tho doors were instantly fastened and
. barricaded and every corner of the house
was inspected by its brave commander,
who determined to sell herself and her
little ones as dearly as possible. She
strove to rally the courage of her little
force bv p raver and a recollection that
they were lu God's hands, but the servant!
were almost beside themselves and
moaned and wept at their Impending
danger. A little hero arose In the eldest
boy, who said: "You and Tombi shoot,
in a a in a. and I and Harry will load the
guns." Nearly an hour passed in thia
dreadful suspense. The approaching
party came leisurely on and headed toward
a point a quarter of a mile to tho left of
the house, where they paused, and hope
began to assert itself that after all they
might pass and leave them unharmed.
Cut it soon became evident that the re
sult of this short halt only meant a
council of war as to the plans to be pur
sued in attacking the house, their
eagle eyes having taken in the fact that
it Lad been put into a stago of siege and
that the inmates were determined to show
fight. About a dozen of the horsemen
galloped forward, and pulling up their
horses a hundred yards from the house,
one of their number rodo forward a few
paces and sending out his strong voice, he
uttered in the peculiar rolling, mellifluous
language of the KaCir a summons upon
the grj-risou to surrender, promising that
their lives should be" spared. . There was
cot an inmate of that household th.it did
not know bow littlq .tho word of a Kaffir
could he relied upon, and the reply that
was sent forth to tLls demand was that
the baird rhoT-Ji move on about their busi
oei: t: d leive their masters, the English, i
to theirs. A derisive laugh from the sav
age iillj-.ved this, and he yelled out a
bl-o.l .:'rrling answer that his band

upon tho bide: and roof, but
upon th a
paltering
doing no
damage.
Tho brave lady, with her one compan
ion iu arms and nurrounded by tho two
boys, who each grasped a cartridge, Kent
a reply in tho fchupo of a volley from their
rifles which took efTect upon one of tho
enemy. A fusilado was kept up on both,
hides for (;or.;o minutes, the gallant little,
baud inside being untouched, but several
of tho besiegers had been wounded and
their fury was raised to a frenzy as they
wero met by a gulling fire, try what qunr
ter of the building they would. Again
they retired to consult, and as a result
mounted thoir horses and, followed by the
footmen, rodo away. The brave woman,
ulmost exhausted by tho great r'l.vsical
strain that had been put upon her, found
vent in a Hood of tears as she threw her
self into tho arms of her boys aud. grasp
ing tho hand of their brave ally, they
sank upon tho ground and gave thanks
for their preservation. But they knew
tho craftiness and hate of the savago too
well not to bo awaro that the worst was
not yet over and that tho band would re
turn, perhaps with reinforcements, aud
attack them.
That day passed in, anxiety, hut no
enemy appeared and night fell, and still
there was no sign of their foes. The faith
ful Fingre urged them to rest while ho
watched, and thus the night passed until
the first blush of dawn showed itself hi
tho east, when the watcher awakened his
mibtress and quietly told her to prepare
for another onslaught. His eyes had not
mistaken the indistinct figures that ho
caught a glimpse of hi the darkness, for
hardly had the besieged reached their
posts when they were assailed with a
heavy fire of bullets, and iu the uncer
tain light they saw a large number of the
relentless KaiErs making a rush towards
them. Their rifles cracked time and time
again as they emptied the contents at the
advancing savages, now scarcely twenty
yards distant, but these did not waver,
they hurled themselves against the bar
ricades, which they endeavored to beat
down, and some, having lit torches, threw
them upon the thatched roof of the build
ing, setting it on fire and adding another
terrible phase to their already desperate
condition. Tho poor mother was now al
most driven to despair; the new danger
threatened destruction. But again the he
roic boy came to the rescue. Bidding his
sister take his place at the cartridge box
ho moved towards tho kitchen of the
building, which was in the rear, and, peep
ing through the loop hole, reconnoitered.
The enemy had retired, waiting for the
fire to do the work for them, and the lad.
haviug assured himself that no one was
lurking around, crept out with a pail of
water and, groping his way towards where
tho nearest torch had been thrown,
emptied the contents upon it and re
turned. . Twice he did this, and was
emerging a third time, when he was
grasped by tho throat by a huge Kaffir,
who dragged him away towards the at
tacking baud.
Tlio appearance of the KafDr with his
captive was tlio signal for a wild yell and
with tho trembling boy intheir midst they
dashed onco more towards t he house. The
horror of tho now frautic mother was ter
rible, as in the fast approaching daylight
she recognized her boy In tho hands of
theso monsters. Moreover, sho dared
not shoot for fear of wounding her
son, who called out to his
mother "to shoot and not to mind
him." The Kaffirs, brandishing their
assegais around the boy, swore that if the
besieged did not surrender ho should
bo butchered in front of his mother's eyes
and ono already pressed tho point, of his
spear against tho boy's chest. The grief
of the woman was heartrending, and it
was with difficulty that she could be dis
suaded from rushing forth towards her
son, but her agony was short lived. Even
as sho wavered there aroso upon the
morning air a clattering of hoofs, aud,
beforo the savages could recover from
their surprise, with a hearty cheer and
sabers raised aloft, theie dashed into
their midst a party of Cape Mounted
Rifles. It was a caso of "sauve que
peut," and the enemy broke aud fled.
A bfoody war followed, in which many
deeds of valor were done, but none that
outshone the defense of the bravo woman
at the Idutche. Fred (J. Browning in

Injurious Effects of Jfoise.
A writer in The Popular Science
Monthly asserts that noiso is one of the
most injurious Influences of city life. It
may not be sufficiently loud to attract the
attention of those accustomed to it, hut,
if continuous, it acts as inevitably upon
tho nervous system as water in dropping
upon a stone. Experiments made upon
animals show that when they have been
subjected, for a number of hours, to the
vibration of a tuning fork, their nerve
centers became irritated, as" certainly as
muscular fibers would be affected by an
acid or an electric shock.
The injurious effect of ordinary noises
has been recognized by the authorities of
European cities, and, in some cases, tho
nuisance has been suppressed. Heavily
laden carts are not admitted to certain
streets of Berlin, and in others they are
only allowed to pass on condition that the
horses walk. The street cars of Munich
have no bells, and those of us who live in
places where these bells are not used on
Sunday can testify to the relief attend
ant oa the consequent "peace and quiet."
The amount of the matter seems to be
that the city dweller must regard noise
as one of the necessary evils of his condi
tionone to be borne philosophically, and
requiring a large stocic of grace and pa
tience. Happy, Indeed, are they who,
through the long hot months, are only
disturbed in their morning slumbers by
the song of the birds or the crowing of
cocks. Youth's Companion.

We accent the Issue, and confidently appeal to
the people for their judgment. The piotoetive
system must be maintained. Its abandonment
has at way ben followed by general dishi-ter
to all interests except those of the uuMirer

We denounce the Mills' bill as destructive to
general busmens, labor, and the farming inter
ests of the country, and .e heartily endorse
the consistent and patriotic action of the re

of the democratic party to place wool on the

shal be adjusted and maintained so as to fur
nish full and adequate protection to that ia-du-try.
The republican party would effect all needed
reduction of the national revenue by repealing
the taxes on tobacco, which are an arrogance
ami burden to agriculture, and the tax upon
spirits used iu the arts and for mechanical pur
poses, and by hiielt revision of the tariff laws as
will tend to check imports ot such articles as
are produced by our people, the production of
winch gives employment to our labor, and re
lease from import duties these ai tides of for

which cannot ht produced at home, there i-hall

declare that by the joint action of republicans
and democrats about fifty million acres of un
earned lauds, originally granted for the con
si ruction of railroads, have been restored to
the public domain in pursuance of conditions
inserted by the republican party in the oiigin
al jrrauts. We charge t e democratic adminis

ADMISSION OF TEKU1TORIKS,
The government by congress of the territor
ies is based upon necessity only to the end that
they may heeome states in the union ; there
fore, whenever the conditions of population,
material resources, p'.blie intelligence and
morality are such as to Insure stable local gov
ernmebt therein t lie people of such territories
should he permitted, a right inherent in them,
to form for themselves constitutions and state
governments and be ad-nitted into the union,
fending preparatl in for statehood all oflicers
thereof should be selected from bona fide
residents and citizens of the territory wherein
they are to serve. South Dakota should of
right be immediately admitted as a state h:
the union under the constitution framed, and
adopted by her people and we heartily en
dorse 1 be action of the republican senate in
twice passing bills for her admission. 1 he re
fusal of the" democratic houe of representa
tives, jor partisan purpwses, to favorably con
sider these bills is a willful violation of the
sacred American principle of local self-government,
and merits the condemnation of all just
men. 'the pending bills in the senate for acts
to enable the oeople of Washington, North
Dakota and Montanna territories to form con
stitutions and establish state goveninie..ts
should be passed without unnecessary delav.
The republican party pledges inself to do all in
its power to facilitate the admission of the ter
ritories of New Mexico. Wyoming. Idaho aud
Arizona to the enjoyment of self-government
as states. Such of them as are now qualified
as soon as possible. and others as soon as they
nay become no.
THE MORM03 QUFSTIOV.
The political power of the Mormon courch in
the tenitories as exercised lu the past is a
menance to free institutions too dangerous to
be lonp suffered. TSerefore we pledge the re
publican party to appropriate legislation,
asserting the sovereignty of the nation in all
the territoiies where the sttiie is questioned,
and in furtherance of that end to place
upon the statute book legislation stringent
enough to divorce political from ecclesiastical
power, aud thus stamp out the attendant
wickedness of polygamy.
'J lie republican party la lu favor of the use
of both gold and silver as money, and con
demns the policy of the democratic adminis
tration in its efforts to demonetize silver.
We demand the reduction of letter postage
to 1 cnt per ounce.
In a republic like ours, where the citizens Is
the soveitign ?cd the official the servant,
where no power is exercised except by the wi.l
of the people. It Is im;ortaut that the sover
eign r-eople should possess intelligence. The
free school is the promoter of that intelligence
which is to preserve ns a free nation. There

should support free Institutions of learning

The men who al liidoued the republican par
ty in lsx4 and continue to adhere to the demo
cratic party have deserted not only the cause
of honest government, but of sound nuance, of
freedom and purity of the ballot, but espec
ially have deserted the cau-e of reforoi in the
civil service. We will not fall to keep our
tiledges because tl ev have broken theirs, or
ie-anse their candidate has broken his. W'e
therefore repea' our declaration of lss4. towit :
The reform of civil service auspiciously begun
under republican administration should be
completed by a further extension of th reform
s stem already established by law to all grades
of I he service to which it is applied. The spir
it and purpose of reform should be observed in
all executive appointments, and all laws at
varience with the object of existing reform It g
islation should be repealed, and that the dan
gers to free institutions which lurk in the pow
er of official patronage may be wisely and ef
fectively avoided.
The gratitude of the nation to the defenders
of the union cannot be assured except bv laws.
The legislation of congress .should conform to
the pledges made by a loyal people, and lie so
enlarged and extended as to prov'de against
the possibility that any man who honorably
wore the federal uniform shall become an In
mate of an almshouse or dependent on private
charity. In the presence of an overflowing
treasury it would h" a public scandal to do less
for those whose valorous service preserved the
government. We denounce the hostile spirit
shown by President Cleveland in his numerous
vetoes of measures for pension relief, and the
action of the democratic house of representa
tives in refusing even consideration of general
pension legislation.
In support of the principles herewith enun
ciated, we invite the co operation of patriotic
men of all parties, especially of all working
men whose prosperity is seriously threatened
by the free trade policy of the present admin
istration. The first cor cern of all good government is
the virtue and sobriety of t lie people Mid the
purity of their homes. The republican party
cordially sympathizes with hll wise and well
directed efforts for the promotion of temper
