How often triftn remind as
Of thtold dart long paned If,
And how often w live them ore
In dreams dispelled with tifh.
Bow the tipht of an old worn letter
And it't loving words within
Will recall the md, rad Mory,
Thtnorj that "might have been."
And oft as we sit by the fireside
Watching its dancing flame.
Something hovers about and whisper
An old lamiiiar name.
A name that was once so enchanting
Twas like the lar of the morn,
When in vapors alt laden with per fu nil
To the hung sun it borne.
Then again Sn the glow of the blaze
A vision haunts our brain,
And whirls us back to our childhood,
Unspotted from worldly stain.
Thns lost in the book of memory '
We turn each faded leaf.
While mournfully rustling they HIT n,
With feelings akiu to grieC
Yet we ding to the fragile thread
That holds us to those days.
Before fate's curtain had risen
On the scene of life's sad plays.
But soon the spell is broken
Tho' the hot tears fill our eyes.
And the past seems clothed in sorrow
, But that sorrow niakes.us wise.

RECKED IN A CAVE
tTrue) Story of Newfoundland,
' BT 8. 0. W. BENJAMIX.
, HERE were six
JT-7"!C schooners at Pet ipas
.mi ready to put to sea.
jlJ " Fetipas is the trading
settlement at the
head of navigation in
the Bay of Islands on
the west coast of
was already late in the season, and if
those schooners delayed there much
longer they would have to remain all
winter, as there is no navigation there
after the autumnal storms begin; the
harbors are few and the entire coast
is rocky, one great cliff, offering not
shelter, but only destruction.
Yes, it was high time for tWse six
schooners to start for home. The
wind was at the north-east and fair
for them, although the sky was over
cast, and out in the gulf it was doubt
less blowing hard. But if they could
once got clear of the land before the
wind uliiftfiil ro th w?t-j M it was sure
todo, they could manage to work thoir
way home. Anyway, this was their
chance, and they had to risk it. He
who goes to sea must be ready to take
risks. No fair-weathpr sailor ever suc
ceeded in his vocation.
and the rapid current, with the fitful
squalls, took them past the narrows
into the middlo of the Bay of Islands.
Had the wind held they, would have
cleared the land long before night.
Butfthe tremendous cliffs which .sur
rounded them often shut of! the wind,
which would again sweep out of the
narrow gulches with the quickness
and force ot a cunnon-ball. Under
the vast cliffs of Illamidan the squalls
and calms were exceedingly trying.
What made the matter worse the
wind was gradually shifting to the
south, which showed that it was
working around to the west, the Very
thing the skippers of the little fleet
Late in the afternoon the schooners
found themselves near Ouibal, or
Guernsey Island, an inaccessible rock
1,300 feet high, which stands just in
the entrance of the Uav of Islands.
There is a passage on either side, nl
though the southern channel is pre
ferred. The question for each captain
to decide now was which passage to
take. From habit as much as any
reason five Of tho schooners took the
southern passage. Tho Sea Foam
took the northern channel, and the
schooners parted never to meet again.
Every one of these five schooners
were lost that night with all on board.
Jack Fowler was on the Sea Foam.
His fatherwas captain and part own
er of the standi little clipper. He was
as smart a man ns ever sailed a
schooner on the Gulf of Lawrence.
It was the custom at the open
ing of the seat-on to load
up his vessel wit h "notions" and start
on a trading cruise on the const of
Newfoundland. In the hold were bar
rels of flour, kerosene oil, rice, oat
meal, fishing nets and the like. The
cabin was fitted with shelves like a
country grocery store, and it was
packed with ginghams, sea boots, oil
coats, woolen caps, hoods, thread and
needles, looking glasses, combs and
brushes, fish-hooks, cheap dolls, iew
harps, accordions, plug tobacco, t hree-for-a-oent
cigars, and in fact, every
sort of knick-knack likely to be needed
by the simple folk in that out-of-the-way
corner of the world. There was
also good store of poor tea and ardent
spirits. On dropping anchor in port
Captain Fowler would hire the largest
available room and give a dance that
would be the sensation of the season
in the settlement. Thus a pleasant
understanding would come about and
a brisk trade would follow; he took
his pay chiefly in salt fish.
The trade that year had been good
and the hold of the Sea Foam was
well loaded. There was a pood store
of silver in the captain's chest as well,
and he looked forward with livelysat
isfactiontoa comfortable winter at
home with his family. He had
never stayed as late as this in
Newfoundland, perhaps because he
had a larger vessel than usual and
more goods to dispose of. It was
intensely dark when the Sea Foam
finally cleared the vast, vague mass
of Guernsey Island, whose head was
wrapped in driving scud. There was
a furious tumult among the clouds in
midair as the little schooner met the
mighty swell rolling in from the west.
A gale of wind was piping up from the
south; the gloom was appalling; a
spiteful dash of rain occasionally add
ed to the wilderness of the scene. The
only ray of hope seemed to be in the
northwest, where a streak of clear sky
on the horizon, a mere seam under the
brooding canopy of night and storm,
nromised fair weather. Rut. tn Hi a t.
perienced eye of Captain Fowler that
streak of light was filled with inexpres
sible dread. At that season of the
year following a northeaster it meant
to them in that spot a tempest, a lee
snore, ana in an prooaoiuty destruc
tion. - -- - -
Tit Sea Foam ought to have been
under close reefs. But a tre of soil
was carried on h'r with the hope of
making an omng ttelore a shut of the
wind. She leaped from wave to wave
like a mad vteed, buried in a smother
of foam that swept the decks fore and
aft and shook every timber in the
ship. Her lee rail wasawarh; every
rope and timber and par creaked
and groaned under the pressure. Not
an eye on board was closed. The
westerly swell making a cross-sea with
the southerly surge showed that a
shift of the wind could not long be
deferred. And when it caniehowinany
ot tnein would see another dawn.
When the schooner had cleared the
northern head of the Bay of Islands
Captain Fowler eased her off a point
or two to the north'nrd to increase
her headway. His aim was to place
a safe distance between them and the
land. If they could but hold that
course until after midnight they
might then in case of an emergency be
able to run for the Straits of Belle
Isie. But we can never ouite tell when
the sotithwester will nluft northwest
and what will be the force of the lat
Jack was on deck clinging with a
firm grin on the conipaniomvny. He
did his share at steering and hand
ling the sails, but just then there was
nothing to be done but watch And
wait. He was somewhat anxious, but
-not half as anxious as his father, for
he was too young ns yet fully to re
alize the power and the terror of the
There came a stronger blast than
usual, and a smart shower. The
change of wind was at hand. The
schooner lay over almost on her beam
"Luff," cried the captain; then rang
out the order to shorten sail instant
ly. The bonnet was taken off the jib,
the fore and main sails were close
reefed. It was a hard job and done
none too soon. For hardly had
everything been made snug when there
came a very heavy Bhower, followed
by a lull. For a moment there was a
dead calm. The little vessel wallow
ed helplessly, and nothing was heard
but the dreary wash of the sea.
But the light streak in the west was
broadening rapidly. The lower edge
of the rising mass of clouds was fring
ed with a thin, ragged mist and smoke,
indicating a violent agitation of the
Captain Fowler sprang to the helm
himself and cried, "Ease oft your
mainsheet; flatten your weather jib
sheet." A cold puff from the west
shuddered through the west sails.
"lt co the foresale: lively there.
boys, lively!" Hardly were the words
out of his mouth when a roar was
heard approachini! tho shiD like a
thuudor of a cataract. 'J'ho men
sprang to the ropes, and as tho fore
sail came down a terrific 'blast struck
the schooner and laid her side under
to the hatches. She all but went
over. As she gathered wav Contain
Fowler cased her bv slowlv rmttinc
down the helm as sho leaned awav
with the fury of a fiend.
The wind and sea arose. It berima
impossible to carry anything hut try
sails. But even with ll)ose there was
no hope; and when the mainmast
parted near tho partners the game
was indeed up. The plaything of the
storm, swept by every sea, the
schooner drifted swiftly toward the
land. Tho deadly boom of tho surf
roaring down above the howling wind
soon announced the vicinity of the
implacable cliffs. In a few moments
the fated men on the schooner exnert.
ed to be beaten to death on the rocks.
1 here came a tremendous breaker.
It lifted the doomed ship on its
mighty shoulders and rushed with it
toward the land. The cliffs literally
towered overhead. - But when the'
crew gave themselves up for lost the
surge suddenly retired and the ship
settled down on a ledge above the
rest of the shore within a vast cavity
in tho face of the precipice. To their
amazement when day broke tho crew
found their vessel comparatively un-
njttrect. ine waves came into the
cave, but rarely with their full force.
The first sensation of all on board
was one of relief and gratitude. They
were all safe but two, who had been
washed overboard and lost. But
when they were able to examine
their situation more calmly despair
took the place of hope. They were
surrounded with inaccessible cliffs.
Far as they could see north and
south the land stretched away like a
There was no access bv the slwire
for there was no beach to speak of,
and their boats had both been lost.
Ships never passed dnrinc the winter.
The only prospect before them was to
exist in that horrible situation until
spring. hat fearful sufferings were
before them with all the rigors of cold
and starvation! Would any of them
live to see another spring?
And yet to think that only a few
miles away, perhaps only a few rods
on tho cliff above them human beings
were living who might devise some
way to save them if they knew! So in
our very cities men and women die of
sutiermg ana want which might be re
lieved by those living in the next
street if they but knew!
1 he only thing to be done was to take
account of all the provisions on the
schooner and proceed at once to ar
range matters for a long, hard winter.
'llie vessel was victualled for only a
few days, and they had expected to
cet across to Nova Scoti in that
time, and what provisions they had
were damaged by the sea. Some of
the codfish in the hold remained un
soaked by the sea, some biscuit, a
little salt beef and pork and half a
barrel of Hour. There was some tea,
but this was little use without water,
and of that the supply was scanty.
There was a small stock of spirits,
which was reserved as a last resort.
What gave them perhaps the most
apprehensiou was the question olfuel,
of which there was ery little left.
How long would the spars and ship
timbers hold out against the severity
Captain Fowler made a careful
calculation of everything. Each
article was measured off into daily
rations. This distribution all agreed
to abide by. Jack was also appointed
to keep the log and each day to make
note of what passed, even if only to
set down the date.
There was a Bible and a prayer
book on board, which had not been
often read. But the solemnity of the
occasion caused them to reflect as
they had never done before, and every
morning and evoning a chapter was
read with prayers. The supply of
candles and oil was so short that
most of the long evenings they sat
and talked in tne dark around the
stove. The fuel gave out in December
and they began to break up the spars
and fore part of the ship for
(liristniAs - ami 'er lear s were
anything but festive days. This lit
tie band of lonely men did their best
to be cheerful. On Christmas the last
of the flour was made into a plum
duff that was conspicuous for the
absence of plums. They drank in
whiskey to the health of the folks at
home, but on the w hole they were glad
when the day was done. Early in
January the mate, made desperate by
these terrible hardships, thought he
would try to reach some accessible
spot where lie might climb the cliff by
walking on the ice. He was never seen
again. Another of the men soon yield
ed to a chronic disease. This left only
three survivors. The supply of water
gave out eariy, but as long as they
were able to keep tin a fire they could
melt the snow which drifted into the
cave and robed the vessel in a mantle
of ermine. But for this resource they
would all have perished before Christ
mas, una perhaps it would have been
better for them if it had been so.
In February they had the good luck
to kill a pair of seals which ventured
too near the ship on the ice. This
supply of fresh meat kept them alive
awhile longer. Bui their hardships
told fearfully on the three who re
mained, and in March the cook died,
Jack and bis father alone remained,
Jack had an iron constitution and in.
exhaustible hope. But for him his
lather might have. died earlier. He
lived for Ins son. The open season
was now approochine. and al
though near the last gasp, he
might have weathered these
cruel sufferings if he had
not been struck down by a piece of
rock falling fioin overhead. This was,
as it were, thelast straw. Ho lingered
in his berth, tenderly nursed bv his
heroic boy. April had come and if he
could only live a few days, a few hours
more, help would come to them. But
it was of no avail to care about him:
his strength was ended.
"Jack," said he, calling tho bov to
his side and feebly grasping his hand,
"jack, my toy, you will live to see
them at home again: tell them I
thought of them to the butt. Be good
to your mother. God bless you."
"OIl father, not vet; not vet: vou
will be all right again; I knowyou will.
I am sure we shall be saved yet,"
sobbed Jack, with streaming eves:
But while he spoke a slight spasm
shook Jiis father's frame, and he pass
ed away with a deep, gasping sigh.
For the first time Jack gave up all
hope. Who would not, situated as he
was? It was appalling. Without
strength, without food, without fire,
alone with the dead. -The second dav
after his father's death, Jack lay on
tho cabin floor wrapped in a blanket,
his emaciated hand clinched over his
last biscuit, and his teeth set in the
list agony. -A noise was heard and
then an old man and a boy stepped
into the cabin. They started bock in
amazement and horror.
1 hen recovering themselves thev ap
proached and found Jack still breath
ing. 'I ho old man pulled out a flask
and poured a few drons down his
throat. They also chafed Jack's
hands nnd feet. The boy then went
out and in a few minutes brought back
some warn tea nnd, a Utile porridge
from the cuddy in their fishing boat.
It is enough to add that Jack was
brought back to life iust at the mo
ment when his soul was fluttering on
the bounds of tho spirit world. The
spring had returned indeed, but after
what a winter.
The Old Santa Fe Trail.
Thirty-five years after Columbus
discovered this continent Alva Nunez
Cabeza de Vaca sailed from Spain and
landed in Florida, or in the region now
called by that name. From there he
made a wonderful overland iourney to
theCityofMexico. On that journey a
ever since has found great favor with
travelers to New Mexico. Just think
of it! There is a road 800 miles long,
rising so imperceptibly for over 000
miles of the distance as to seem abso
lutely level, nnd without a single
bridge from end to end! What won
derful tales that road could tell of
the bearded followers of de Vaca, thin
and worn by privation and the fatigue
of their long journey through a wilder
ness until then pathless of the after
settlement of the neighborhood by the
Spaniards of the coming of the hardy
American pioneer, traders, soldiers,
settlers and last, but most import
ant of all, the railroud engineers.
Many an exploit of soldiers, scout
and Indian warrior has that ancient
trail witiessed. Phil Kearney knew
it well, for had be not fought over
nearly its entire lencth? Kit Carson
achieved much of his fame in its vicin
ity, and in the early fifties F. X. Au
brey, a young man, made a famous
ride acainst time over the same route,
from Santa Fe to Independence. Mo.
The Elephant's Memory.
The elephant bus an excellent
memory. It recollects friends well and
it rarely forgets nn injury. It is re
corded of one that it smashed a
cocoanut upon its driver's head, and
smashed the man's head at the same
time because the lazy, thoughtless
fellow had broken a cocoanut on its
skull the day before. A quartermas-'
ter engaged in superintending the re
moval of baggage in the camp by
means of an elephant, became angry
at the creature's refusing to carry
more than u certain weight, and fool
ishly Hung a tent pec nt its head.
Some days afterward the elephant
overtook the quartermaster as he was
going through the camp, seized him
with its trunk and neatly placed him
among the branches of a tamarind
tree, leaving him to reach the ground
again in the best way he could.
Cot His Discharge.
A most remarkable incident
occurred at the City Hospital.
the custom there every afternoon at
2 o'clock for one of the clerks to visit
the various wards and tell the
patients who are able to go home
that they are discharged. Several
days ago the clerk entered M ward,
and, walking to the side of Henry
Juelg's cot, said: "You can go out to
day. Your name is on the discharge,
list." Juelg who was suffering from
heart disease, Waned upon his elbow,
nnd turning to Dr. Wolf, who waa
standing near by, asked in an anxious
tone: "Doctor, am I disihargedr'
"Why, no," was the answer, "you
are not well enough." Before th
physician could utter another word
the patient dropped back dead.

from tho people and for the people.
Then we will have two parties made
and built up by tho people, so that we
can discard the two old plutocratic
parties and all their rubbish. We
wish to be understood that we advo
cate the platform of the People's par
ty. We wish further to bo understood
that wo are not afraid of any party
springing up among the masses. But
we frankly admit that wo see nothing
in either old party but treachery and
danger to republican liborty.
Atchison Champion': "It is a remark.
able fact that a largo proportion of
the masters of the money question
have accumulated but little money,"
remarks an eastern coteraporary.
How about the Wall street lights,
who, last fall, after denouncing our
western demand for more money, con
cluded it was necessary for the treas
ury to issue more money for the bene
fit of Wall street? To bo sure iust be.
fore they reached that conclusion
they had not been accumulating very
aiuch money either.
Won't do In n Free Country.
A celebrated English preacher ad
dressing the late religious convention
at Chicago talked business to the sin
ners and gave them "straight goods."
"To bring the Pharisee to the posi
tive side of sin is easily done nowadays
in Chicago and other large cities. -I
give tithes to tho poor. I fast twice a
week,' says the Pharisee. That man
would rob widows' houses and grind
the faces of the poor, and do all that
is devilish in the abomination of bus
iness, and business and devilment 6eem
to be getting to bo one and the same
thing on both sides of the water."
Tut! tut! man, we don't allow any
priest to talk so to us in this free coun
try. We boycott such and cut off
their base of supplies.
The papers are always harping on
the number of aspirants in the alliance
for public office. With about two
thirds of the voters of the state mem
bers of the alliaiice, it would be a rea
sonable estimate to make that there
are two-thirds of the candidates who
are members of the alliance. There
are not relatively that number. But
who is it that is making this herculean
kick about alliance otnce-seekersjifex
cept the men outside of the alliance
who want office? They are making
the racket because thoy see their old
game of securing office frustrated.
Watch these whiners and it will be
seen that they will be bobbing up
serenely in a very short time with an
announcement Alliance Herald.
