THOMPSON OF OURS.
THE CONFIDENTIAL REPORT.
Up there between Quetta and Can
dahar it gets very cold in January a
nasty, biting, blustering cold that nips
the liver and shortens the temper;
that comes whistling round your mud
hut with a northeast wind from off
the snows, and cracks the shrivelled
kin off you like old parchment.
The Colonel blew on his fingers,
howled for fresh wood to be piled up
on the fire, and full to the contempla
tion of his thumb, which was frost
bitten. Before him upon the table lay the
loathsome sheets of foolscap known
as the "Annual Confidential Reports.
Someofthesewere already filled in, some
blank as ytt. Each was headed by
the name of an officer, and fringed by
the impertinent personal riddles set
yearly for commandants to answer.
Now, pven when forced to look from
the point of view of disapproval upon
any one of his "Boys," this honorable,
kindly English gentleman held the
system of confidential disparagement
in horror. But really this morning,
what with the cold and the maggots
in the rice which had put him off his
breakfast, and the extraordinary de
lay in the mail letters, he felt inclined
to damn every man-jack of them, him
self included.' With a roaring blizzard
searching your bones, and a suspicion
of fever in your blood, and nothing
decent to eat, you don't feel like certi
fying that every soul under your com
mand is remarkable for all qualities
that go to make saints upon earth.
Anyhow, tlio Colonel did not feel
like it. lie begun turning Over tiiu
sheets, with that sickly, languid feel
ing of revolt with which monotony la
its unpleasant forms is apt to inspire
one after Ions years of patient grind.
Ho hated those grim skeleton sketch
es in black and white. It was always
the same thing the same weary
struggle to combine strict truth with
fair words; to put "Yes"' where it
ought to be "No," and "No" where it
ought to be "Yes." For were they
indeed all these youths zealous in
well-doing, all talented, all factful, all
of equable temper? Had they every
one of them been endowed from their
cradles with unnatural sagacity and
aptitude for command? VVere they;
in short, ready-made generals from
the moment tliuv entered the service?
Alas, no! The Colonel's eye wandered !
to his crippled thumb again and then
back to the sheets under his other
hand, and presently fell upon a
certain name heading one of them.
Whereupon he cursed the authorities
in his heart for a pack of fools and
eighed. It was Thompson Lieuten
ant William Thompson known by
the name of "Billy."
The Colonel took it in his hand and
sighed again. There was not one, or
hardly one, of those cut-and-dried
: . 1 t u v j
gracefully, yet conscientiously, as re
garded this young man. "I could
describe him in three words," groaned
the Colonel; "harum-scarum young
Then, for he liked the lad, he began
to wonder how oj earth he was to till
up that Report. He was a keen sol
dier himself, and, if truth be told, had
a partiality for the type so pithily de
scribed in those three words. He
would rather have such with him in
the field than some others for whom
perchance more could be said on pa
per. Of such he knew was the king
dom of heroes.
The ghosts of many haunting trage
dies came crowding into the old sol
dier's mind as he sat fingering that in
ternal paper. Via any of these harsh
moral photographs of them, with
"Yeses" and "Noes" in the most un
becoming places, lie rotting still per
haps in the Adjutant-General's offices?
He got up shivering and kicked the
logs into a blaze, then returned with
stern determination to the study of
the vexing questions in hand. What
could he say for Billy Thompson? The
laa naa the temper ol a game buii-ler-
rier, the tact and judgment of a New-
foundland puppy, and about as much
ability and acquirement as the aver
age English schoolboy. The thought
of Billy Thompson as ornamented
with the complete list of "Confidential
Report" virtues was not hing less than
grotesque. , .
He glanced down the list. Why, that
very morning he had spent a bad half
hour in wigging the youngster for
shortcomings in almost every item.
Late acain for Parade. Violent with
a Sepoy. Hadn't the faintest notion
of his drill, aad so on.
"What on earth am I to say for
you, sir?" he had asked, angrily, tap
ping the bundle of uncompromising
papers, at which ililly glanced with
rueful despair iu his honest eyes. "You
are distinctly careless, wanting intact,
useless at office work what's the
use of complaining of your writers,
sir? inattentive and argumentative
Ride? Of course; and that's about all
youre re fat tor. That and tennis:
but unluckily these won't advance
you in your profession, nor gain your
respect nor fit you tor a command."
Then the Colonel had stolen a look
at the frank, bright face, and thought
for the millionth time how ridiculous
it all was. The lad was honorable
and brave. Why not trust to time
and training to do the rest? He
wanted a tight hand over htm of
course; but why be forced to send up
a, nasty, disparaging report ol him to
Somehow the Colonel could not find
it in his heart to doit, and was still
worrying over it, when a telegram was
brought in addressed "To the Official
Commanding," This was followed
shortly by a knock at the rough door
opening outward on to the cold,
wind-swept inclosure, - a, struggle to
shut the same, and a tall, smart-
looking officer entered, helmet in
band. ' . .
KOh, that you llamerton! I was
just goim to send (or you. There's a
row un JChunat war. Jamee or the
police wounded. Uhazis again killed
a lot of neonle. I'm ordered to send
an intelligent officer to invratigatethe
thing and report. You 11 have a
ticklish job but I can rely upon you.
I've been thinking whom you had bet
ter take. You see, I can spar only
one or two, either Bates or Thomp
son. Bates haa the longest head, and
yet Thompson well, if it came to
blows, somehow I should prefer
Thompson. But as you like."
As he said this the Uoionei instinc
tively glanced at the pilo ol papers be
side him. Bates's name happened to
lie uppermost, with its every question
snugly and neatly answered. Thomp
son's had frisked oft gayly in the
draught of the open door, and was
just saved from being chewed under
the table by llamerton 's puppy, who
had followed his master in.
"It shall belittle Billy," Majorllam
erton said to himself; and proceeded
to the discussion of further details
concerning escort and commissariat
arrangements for the small expedi
tion. A littlebefore nightfall they started,
a party of fifteen in all: the two Eng
lish officers Billy in a state of the
wildest joy, and bursting with impor
a nee a dufTedar; and twelve Sewars
of the Khunaz Horse. A second tele
gram had been received soon after the
first saying that the Uhazis. who were
few m number, had taken themselves
off; that a native hospital assistant
was in charge of James the wounded
Eolice officer; that he was to be
rought back here, because there was
no other European doctor nearer
"Hope we come across the beggars,"
Billy said, gleefully.
But the Colonel, who had ridden
out a little way with the party, and
had wished them "good lurk," found
himself saying something like a prayer
in his heart tor the safe return of tlio
two men, who were, in his opinion,
the very pick of the regiment.
In times of peace these inglorious
little brushes with sneaking Ghazis
are not among the pleasantest feat
ures of service in Afghanistan. To an
old soldier they suvor too much of
that potting fiom behind hedges with
which the Irish peasantry have famil
iarized us, and to which no military
glory is attached. He does not care
about sending out good men to furn
ish targets for skulking devils who
have no ground of quarrel, but are
merely possessed of a fanatical desire
to spill Fcrringhee blood. Wherefore
the Commanding Officer was ill at
ease, and for the next two days there
fell a dullness and malaise upon
everybody in camp. Like the inlluen
za, it attacked them all, from the
Colonel downward, only as Kipling
says that is another story.
It whs in tlio spring of 1800 that
the influenza came sweeping over Af
ghanistan, death-laden from Euro
pean cities. It was when April had
cast its brief ethereal spell upon this
baren spot, and had woven a fairy
carpet of flowors all over the plain,
teaching the grim landscape the mean
ing of a smile. Only for a few beauti
ful days in all the year is the ground
moist and fragrant, and covered with
delicate short-lived blossoms. Like
lovely ghosts they come and go the
white wild hyacinth bells, the small
red tulip, the exquisite purple iris. It
was with these sweet visitors that the
influenza came, dealing suffering and
death among the lonely scattered out
posts, whore comforts are few and
ux vines ior uie sick unprocurable.
But in this Januarv. the plain was
baren of any verdure or vegetation,
save for a leafless scrub that grows
low upon the earth and gives out a
fragrance resembling that of wild
thyme. And you could see right away
to the horizon in one direction, and
as far as a chain of low rocky hills in
Upon the third day after the depart
ure of the expedition the Colonel rode
out to reconnoitre along with tlio
doctor, who was always gamo for a
ride. The Commanding Officer was
more anxious than he allowed to ap
pear. Somehow a two years' sojourn
in those dreary wilds draws men very
close together when they are made of
good stuff. The party ought to have
returned ere this, and the Colonel s
heart was disquieted within him. He
was scanning the horizon carefully,
when suddenly he pulled up and shad
ed his eyes.
'What s that little cloud of dust.
doctor? Is it a 'devil' or a couple of

er, answered that it was no "devil."
but horsemen, and that they were
making for camp.
Uy Jove! exclaimed the t.oionei
with his field-glasses up, "it is it's
Thompson and a Sowar!
In another moment they were cut
ting across to meet them.
Billy was riding a length or two m
front, and his jaded horse pulled up
of its own accord as he neared tho
approaching riders. The Sowar
saluted, and remained stolidly im
movable in the background. Both
men and horses were caked with dust,
and wore a wearv. dewcted air.
"we re bringing in James all right,
. " - - .....
sir," answered isilly in response to
the Colonel's questioning gesture
But we had a fight Ghazis, this
side Khunaz. Hamertoii's badly
wounded. I've come on for the
doctor; his only chance. The black
fellow bolted who was looking after
James. Can the doctor go at once,
sir? This Sowar wants a fresh horse,
After a word or two with the Com
mandant, the doctor sped toward
camp with the Sowar at his heels. He
paused for a moment by the side of
iSilty, and looked him in the face.
".I shall be under way in ten min
utes," he said. "Look here, old fel
low, you ve had about enough; go
home and turn in." He was struck
by the look of agony and mental
strain on the boy's face.
After that the Colonel got very few
words out of him. He saw that the
young fellow was done up, and ques
tioned him little. His mouth was
parched, so that he could with diffi
culty articulate. His strong young
figure was bowed over the horse s
neck. As they were Hearing camp the
doctor wicn nis escort roue out, ana
called back some cheeping words to
him. Five ' minutes later they were
out of sight.
Once within camp limits the Colonel
dismounted, and, giving his horse over
to a syce, walked beside the young of
ficer s horse with his hand on its neck,
Several fellows came up with greetings
"Come straight to mess and have
something to drink before you tell us
anything, said the Colonel, taking
hold of the horse s bridle as he spoke
At the same moment he felt it slacken
within h's graap, and looking up h
aaw that Billy was reeling in his aad.
die, and that his lips were bloodless.
"II think I'm done," he muttered
feebly and fell sideways off his horse
into the Colonel's arms.
They carried him over to the mess
and began to take off his military
great-coat. Then something madehng
open his eyes, and his face took a lit
tle brave distorted smile.
"Hold hard! hegasped; "Ithink I've
got a bullet somewhere, and and
my arm's smashed."
"Why, damn it!" groaned the Colo
nel, laying him genii uOWft, and look
ing round upon the circle of horror
striken faces, "he knew this, and he
has sent away the doctor!"
It was some weeks before Major
llamerton was able to tell the story
of Lieutenant Thompson's heroic con
duct how when he himself was
wounded and at the mercy of the
murderers, the young officer defended
him single-handed; how afterward he
pushed en into Khunaz and brought
out James of the Police more dead
than alive, and how finally, while con
cealing the fact that he had been shot
in the right arm, he rode forty miles
in to get the doctor and thus for the
second time saved the Major's life.
It was longer still though before
Billy was out of danger. The wound
had Bet up inflammation and fever
from over-exertion and the long time
that had of necessity elapsed before
skilled care could be bestowed upon it,
and for weeks it was feared it would
go hard with Billy.
But in the end the "harum-scarum
young devil" got well, and the Colonel
had the pleasure of sending up a
"Confidental Report" of a very super
ior kind, together with a brilliant pen
dant, which has resulted in the be
stowal of tho much-coveted Victoria
Cross upon Lieutenant William
Thompson, of Ours. Vanity Fair.
A DEADLY PILGRIMAGE.
Heartrending; Accounts of a Pil
grimage to Mecca.
An Indian journal lays that of all
the pilgrims leaving Bombay for Mecca
and Medina more than a third never
return. Out of 04,038 pilgrims who
left in the six years ending 1890, 22,-
44U were missing. In 1888, of 13,-
070 who started, 7,Ut)5 did not re
turn. The vast proportion of those
missing owe their deaths to epidemics,
starvation and, it is said, murder,
between Jeddah and Mecca. "It is
said, we know not with what truth,
that gangs of bul mashes travel reg
ularly by tho pilgrim steamers so as
to select us their victims such pil
grims as betray inn possession in
means while on the voyage. ' On
tho return voyage the deaths range
from 200 to nearly 400 per 1000 per
mi : i a if
annum, mis is uue to privation
before leaving Jeddah, to overcrowd
ing and sickuuss on board, to insani
tary ships and want of supervision,
and to the age and infirmity of many
of the pilgrims. Tho voyage to Jeddah
is long, and the allowance of space
between ducks is 9 superfical feet per
adult, or 6 feet by 1 feet, so that if
each pilgrim lay down, and the deck
wore free from baggage, their would be
just room, and no more, for tho
passengers. Tho health officer of Bom
bay, in his report for 1890, describes
tho voyage of the pilgrim ship Deccan,
on which cholera appeared on tho
eighth day out from Bombay. Disease
and starvation decimated the pass

days; and of 1240 passengers who set
out on the voyagoonly 1113 returned.

was heartrending. The physically

A Past Captain's Eight.
For a week or two after the boat
races tlio humorous incidents of
the occasion canio to the sur
face. Hero is one by Capt. Allen,
of the Yale' varsity eight of 1890. A
former captain ol a Yalo crew, for fun
and to whilo away the time, started
out to find an eiht that could bo re
lied upon to look liko the genuine
thing. There is a cut about a rowing
man, nnd more especially one who
has been in 'varsity eights, that can
not be imitated. So that the seeker
aftei brawn and muscle found his
work no light tank; nnd when he had
succeeded in muling matera the
prospective crew was found to Decom
posed of past captaius of Yale ex
clusively. So t here could be no mis
taking either of them for a captain of
a '"barKe" in tha wilds of Coventry
or Phenix Centre.
After borrowingelothes.so as to look
as much luce a i ale crew so as possible,
the past-captain crew shot up the
river, the stroke calling each man in
the boat by the name of the real Yale
crew. When near tho Harvards
quarter glasses were suddenly found
to be levelled at the disturbers of the
river's placidity, and in wonderinc
tones those on the bank inquired of
each other if that could possibly be
the real 'varsity eight. But the game
was soon up as the Harvards were
on to tho herculean form of the
coxswain. New London Day.
It Is as Long as the First Cable
Across tha Atlantic.
Did you ever compare Hudson Bay
with other and lesser bodies of water
and land? If you never did, and will
take the trouble to do so you can
not help uttering exclamations of
amazement when the immensity of
this great inland ocean dawns upon
your understanding. From Fury
Strait on the north to the most
southern indentation at the mouth
of Abbitibbe River, it is exactly 1380
miles while the width from Button's
Bay to the mouth of Whale River is
but little under 700 miles.
It is as long as the first Atlantio
cable, and nearly as wide as the com
bined lengths of Lake Huron, Erie
and Ontario. It extends over 12 de
grees of latitude, and covers not less
than half a million square miles, in
cluding more territory within the bor
ders of Great Britain and Ireland,
Sweden, Norway, Greece, Switcerland,
Denmark, the Netherlands and Bel
gium combined. It drains 8,000,000,
square miles ot territory, receives
rivers from the Rocky Mountains,
Labrador, the Artie Regions, and
some which have their source almost
within the limits of the United State.
