How They Did It
Editor Independent: It is claimed
that 4v0 votes were brought into tins
couiity. They were mostly young fel
lows who voted the secoad and third
time who are yet living at home, and
to whom a 120 gold piece is a big thiag
la this county of drouths. Anyway,
the fusion majority was nearly wiped
out, and for one candidate the vote
passed the line.
We know of four who sold for from
110 to 150. They were alb farmers,
very hard up and have more debts
than assets, hard to get bread for the
family. Tbey all bought a herd of
cattle oa time a year or two ago when
cows were 112. They could not sell
them now for 125. Thus they were
persuaded that if they voted for Mc
Kialey cattle would go higher: Most
of them are not in concition with good
fetd and shelter to handle two icows.
let alone 75 or 100, and consequently
lots of them die. One farmer lost. half
his herd the first winter and then the
balance stood him S4. They have
no money to hire help to herd and the
cattle are poor In the fall. Between
raising a small family, rocking the
cradle and getting things on time from
the far away store, there Is little time
to tend cattle They undertake to
milk 20 or 30 cows, and it takes till 11
in th night. Sometimes the mud is
knee deep in yard. The whole business
is as far from paradise oa earth as
aaythmg can be. One young wife with
three children, the oldest can barely
walk, said to a friend that she made
the mistake cf her lifetime when she
married her husband, though young
and handsome and was a splendid
csraller before he married. Don't judge
all by a fev, though. There are lots
cf sensible men, but they don't make
much show when young.
The election is over, though, and
stranre as it may seem two republi
cans here voted for Bryan. One of
them bought a -.ci of cattle for cash
very iow darirg Cleveland's term and
sold vhen cattle were the highest dur

The other .republican has only a cou

News of the Week
The very latest news from South
Africa i3 more astounding than what
came the latter part of last week and
the first of this week. It seems that
the Boers have invaded Cape Colony
itself, from two points. It is almost
Impossible to understand the situation.
How It was possible for the burghers
to fight a battle of so great importance
almost within sight of Pretoria and
have forces enough to invade British
territory hundreds of miles away from
two different points, a hundred miles
apart, is very puzzling, but that is the
news sent by the British themselves.
The object of Invading Cape Coloney
is to secure recruits for the Boer army.
The very gloomy address made by
Lord Salisbury indicates that there is
more behind tils movement than ap-
pears cn the face of it. Cape Colony is
largely inhabited by Dutch who sym
pathize with Kruger and who at a re
cent convention demanded that peace
should be restored on the basis of the
independence of the two little repub
lics. Omnious hints have recently ap
peared In the London papers about a
general uprising of the Dutch in South
Africa and there may be a rebellion
brewing there of Immense proportions.
The British military censors would
not let a word go over the wires about
It if there were. Except for the occu
pancy of the "principal towns, the
British seem no nearer conquering the
two Dutch republics than they were
when Joubert and Cronje were fight
ing along the Orange river more than
a year ago.

Since AsJaugf Knut Husaby'a, pretty
daughter, had grown into a young and
charming woman, there was little
peace in the village of Huaaby. Day
and night the hardy lads of the neigh
borhood engaged in wordy and fistic
quarrels on her account. The climax
was reached in the inn on Saturday
night, when some of the boys had im
bibed too much..
Knut Husaby would not think in
those days of going to sleep on Satur
day night without keeping his big
leather boots on. He was also sure to
have a heavy oak cane next to his bed
for emergency, as he called it. "Since
God has bestowed a pretty daughter
on me, it will be my duty to keep her
from harm," he would say.
Thore Naesset was the son of the
butcher, a strapping young fellow, full
of grit and daring. Gossipers said that
Thore visited Aslaug more frequently
than did any of the other young men
of the village. This rumor did not
please . Knut. ' In fact, he denied it,
saying that he had never seen Thore
and Aslaug together. But the people
laughed and winked at this. They in
sisted that Thore was a sly lover ani
that Aslaug knew how to hoodwink her
The spring came, and Aslaug drove
the cattle to the top of the Aim moun
tain. As the sun slowly descended in
the horizon and far above the steep,
cool rocks of the mountain, the bel
lowing of the cows, the barking of
the dog, and the yodel of Aslaug re
sounded over the valley, the lads, who
were working in the meadows, felt as
if they would like to cast away their
scythes and pitch forks and rush up
the steep paths to court the fair
When Saturday night came there
was a race between them to reach the
mountain top, but they descended
much more rapidly, for behind the
door of the cattle shed a stalwart man
was hidden, who gave each and every
caller a pugilistic reception, and told
them that if they wanted a more se
vere drumming at another time' to call
The wooers knew that there was
only one man in all Husaby who could
boast of the possession of such a
Etrong fist as that possessed by Thore
Naesset. Some of the rich peasants'
sons of the neighborhood thought that
it was a shame that this common
butcher was permitted to lord it thus
on top of the mountain and to keep
all wooers a Way from the beautiful As
laug. Old Knut was of the same opinion
when he was told of the bold doings of
Thore and he boasted everywhere that
if there was no one in Husaby who
could conquer Aslaug's favorite, he
and his son would show that they
could do it in short order.
Knut, it is true, was beginning to
age visibly. He was 60 years old, but
despite this he would now and then
engage in a bout with his son in the
barn yard, and prove a formidable an
tagonist. Only one path led to the top of the
Aim, and it wended its way across
Knut's farm. On the following Satur
day night when Thore wanted to as-
"What do you want. of me!"
cend the mountain and was passing by
the side of the barn, he'suddenly felt
the grip of t a strong arm around his
"What do, you want : bf "toe?" asked
Thore. He . swung himself jaround
dextrously and threw - his assailant
into the thicket.
"You will know soon enough what
we want' of you," said another, who
dealt him a severe blow on his breast,
Thi3 was Aslaug's brother.
"Here comes the third one," re
joined Old Knut. who had meanwhile
managed to extricate himself from tin
bushes, and with these words Thor re
ceived another telling blow.
In the face of danger Thors strength
was doubled. His prowess'ame him

attacked. In - the end, however, de

a hard beating and when blood began
to flow freely Knut called a halt and
added: r . f . . ; t

brother. Wolf , Husaby, and his son
next Saturday night, then my lass will
be yours." 1.,

had to remain in bed overSunday. On

enough to meet Knut's challenge to

He knew that if he would attempt to
make his way- to herthat evening he

Aslaug sat on the summit of the
way," reasoned Thore. Toward dawn
he unmoored his boat and rowed along
the shore of the almost perpendicular
rock, hoping against hope to find some
foothold and some way : of ascending
the Aim from the water side.
After the day's work Aslaug sat on
the summit of the mountain. She did
not anticipate that Thore would be
able to come to her that night, but
she knew that others would come in
his stead. She unchained her fathful
shepherd dog and began to knit. She
was sitting with her. face turned .to
ward the home of Thome, but the mist
began to rise so that she could not
even distinguish the tree tops. . She
moved over , to the other, side, and
there she sat dreaming for a long time
with her eyes riveted on the vast sea.
The view filled her soul with unspeak
able peace. . . .
Suddenly she . felt a desire to give
vent to her, feelings in - loud melody.
She sang the songs of childhood, the
ditties of the village, the Norse nation
al song, and her music sounded weird
in the silent night Then she thought
that some one was answering her.
"What in the world can this be?"
she asked herself. "It cannot be the
echo, for I am facing the sea."
She advanced to the edge of the rock
and swinging her arms around a slen
der tree she searched the wall of the
steep mountain.' But it was quiet and
peaceful on the fjord; not a bird flew
Aslaug returned to her grassy couch
and again began to . sing. This time
she could notlbe mistaken, for it was

Again she 'rushed to the tree and
took a long 16okvdown the Aim. At
last she beheld a boat moored to a
small branch 'that jotted out from the
rock. Only some fifty feet below her,
she saw a red cap, with a man under
it making . its . way. up the slippery
side when not even a mountain goat
would dare to tread.
She hurried back to her place, and
dared not utter a note or word for fear
that the intrepid wooer would be hurl
ed down Into the turbulent waters of
the fjord. -She knew very well who
it was, though she did not see his
face. She threw herself on the ground
and held the long," heavy blades of
grass with both hands, as if it were
her task not to lose her grip on what
was once seized. But the grass roots
began to loosen and in her despair she
cried to God to aid Thore with His
Omnipotence. Then again she began
to think that such' an act of Thore and
such a prayer on her part vere a gross
temptation of God; Nevertheless she
continued her- supplications. "Only
this time, dear Father In- heaven, only
'this time," ahe cried. v's j;V ;.:

contained not an idea of rationality. ' -V

t MANY KINDS OF CACTUSES.
Xhr An Numerous Varieties . itt the
Thorny, Thick-Leaved Specie. .
From the Scientific American: Cac
tus is a genus- oi plants the type of
the natural order of cactaceae, and
comprises numerous; species,' all of
which are native to America. The
aame was originally, given by Theo
phrastus , to , a? spiny plant: found . in
Sicily, The . stems of. the cactus are
usually leafiless and : fleshy, - globular
or columnar,- and are armed . with
spines and bristles. The structure of
many of the species is singular and
grotesque , in the y extreme, : and the
roughness of the. stalks, and the beauty
of the flowers ' make them one of the
most interesting J botanical curiosities
of , our continent They : are found
chiefly in the hot, stony places of
tropical America, .and . their tough and
almost - impenetrable t skin , incloses
abundant juice, . which enables them
to support a sluggish vital action with
out inconvenience k even in; a. parched
soil. Some of the varieties of cactus
are only, a few inches high, while
others attain - a height of forty feet
It Is a curious fact that the cactus
flourishes even at the foot of Mount
Etna in Sicily. ' The most splendid ex
ample of the cactus family is the giant
cactus, of which a fine example is still
standing, although It is slowly rotting
and will soon fall. It was found at a
point eight miles south of Phoenix,
Ariz , near , the Pima reservation. It
Is about forty . feet high. What the
date palm is to the African deserts the
giant cactus is to pur own arid lands.
From It the Mexicans extract a drink
called "mescal," and the Indians also
obtain a beverage from it On its fruit
the Papago Indians live. for, weeks at
a bme. Woodpeckers dig their nests
in the trunks and branches and even
doves feed on the fruit. When the
cactus of this kind die its usefulness
is not destroyed, for the tough ribs
beneath the outer skin are used by the
Papago Indians for the foundation of
their graves. It is not this species of
cactus from which travelers are sup
posed to obtain. a supply of water, but
the small cactus, which contains a
pltntif ul supply of sap.

"I read a description the otner day
of the retrieving cat owned by a
sportsman on Metairle ridge," said a
planter from the south coast to a New
Orleans Times-Democrat man, "and
while it is completely eclipsed, in my
opinion, by a family of swimming cats
owned by Capt Bosco of Tarpon isl
and. Capt Bosco is well known in
New Orleans, where he occasionally
comes to do sojne trading and is im
mensely popular with the crowd that
goes down to the Tarpon club for
periodical outings. He is the kingpin
fisherman of Bay. Adams and as quaint
and.. original a character as you could
find on the whole cast. His swimming
cats, about which I started to tell you.
belong to a feline tribe that has livt d
at the captain's place from time out of
mind. There are at present perhaps
a dozen all told and they have appar
ently lost every vestige of the .natural
antipathy of . their species for water.
They will wade unhesitatingly through
the shallows on the beach, hunting for
small fish and three or four will actu
ally swim out to near-by luggers to
get oysters. Like all cats" they are
very fond of that kind of food and
when the captain's lugger comes in
from a visit to the beds several of
them are certain to jump off the land
ing and swim to where it lies at an
chor. It is very strange to see them
come crumbling cn . beard, mewing
and shaking themselves and seeming
ly as indifferent, to the wetting as so
many setter puppies. . How they de
veloped such an extraordinary trait I
don't pretend to say, but it has prob
ably been a matter of gradual evolu
tion. Capt. Bosco don't remember
when his cats began to go Into the
water, but It was many years ago and
with each generation the natural aver
sion must have become fainter and
fainter. It wouldn't surprise me if
they developed web feet in-the course
of time." ' .
