Corre-i-ond'Mice Cincinnati f imuirer. C.vfp Oiuo, ISlack Hills, Sept 2 , We had to hang a man here the other day. We'd been putting it off on ac count of a lack of time and a bit of sentiment, till the morale of our small town had at last become as bad as t lease of Chicago. Thomas Y.

At the end of five days he Avas ordered to h ave, but, he boldly refused to obey the .v irii.

He got. No one cared what became of him or wnitiier he went, and as lie passed from .sight no on expected in see him again. According to rule, we confiscated all his property except a mule, and mule and man went away together. Somewhere outside of camp, Shoals fell iu with some Texans who were on the make, and as ugly as himself, ;md the gang entered our camp, armed to the teeth, two days after .Shoals left it. The four lambs cam in on a gailop, whooping and yelling, alid as they halt ed upon the public square. Shoals sang out: "Trot out my goods, you wiiitediver- ed dust-diggers, or we'll cut every throat in camp." That meant us, you see.

Reach ing into the hosse for his two revolv ers, he rose up and Avalked out upon the gang just as the rest of us were making a rush tor our shoo. ers. "There's the old devil kill him," yelled Shoals, and the four at once be gan firing. Itwasaca.se of the Lord being on the side of the upright and the innocent. They all had si shot in before the old man gjt ready for busi ness. He put one of his bulletts be tween a Texan's tAvo eyes, his second into another's shoulder, and by that time we were all pegging away. How on earth -J or GO bul.ets could be fired at close range and only one man killed and another wounded is a conundrum for mathematicians. -The dead man fell in a heap. Shoals was dismounted and the other two got out of camp un der cover of the smoke, one of them certainly hit iu tiie shoulder. We pur sued them on foot for half a mile, and the wounded one had hard work to keep his seat. X,i. a miner had been hurt, but nearly a dozen of them hadi bullet holes through hats ami clothing and a eamp-kettie was struck no less ; li in four limes. A fter dinner the men gathered and s i iale v.-iss p i. upon hi. trial.

When asked if he didn't know the pen alty attached to conduct such sis his, he cried out : "I'll dare you to harm one hair of my Lead!

His feet were un- ;ed and he was lifted up. There was not a minute between him stud eterni ty, but yet be kicked right and left like si twin mule, and was cursing God sind man when pulled oil bis feet. It's tough business, .his choking si human being to death, but it takes csue of them ever after. This Sho lis thought no more of killing si m m than some folks would of taking si chew of tobac co, .and it was a bad day for him ay hen he came among the 15 ackeyes. Last April a man named Roberts, who came out here from Delaware, was captured by the Indians near Dead wood. When they had robbed him of every tiling except shirt aul p nils, six of the seven redskins were iu favor of turning him loose and letting hiin g-t back to the city. .The seventh suvago protested against this action, and when he had to suomit to the m ijority he struck Roberts iu the mouth Avith the head of his tom:ihsiYk, smashing out several teeth and inllicrinjr other inju ries. Raherts tool; a lo.ik at ihe warrior, ind when ha was turned loose lie vowed to ret even if he ha 1 to stay out there until Darwin turned ba ;k in to a baboon. Tho mills of th-j jtjI grin I for the savage as well m for ths white mn. Roberts and others have a camp about two miles above us. Indi itt b ars and loafers came into all the camp al- most daily, and the o her day the old I top-knot who played smash with the Delaware m la's teeth enter;' the camp and wa it I to tr i le a I t of fresh ven ison for bar-leal. Roberts identified him in an instant, an I th; venison and the savage were "jerked" at ona and the same motion. All the men iu the camp knew how Roberts had been served, and when he had the right man iu his grasp, there was no one to plead the other sidj- of the case. The Indian was stake 1 down on the grass as a first move. He rec ognized Roberts, and, realizing that the hour of reckoning had come, hi Avhin ed like a dog. He offered rid ', knife,, and all else to settle the dentistry busi ness ; but the miner couldn't have been bought off for Sl'J.oa.). When lie got ready he went to work with the red man's tomahawk and deliberately knocked out every tooth he c.mid get a, an.l he didn't miss a great many. The Indian had no more grit than a boy., but yelled like si regiment of cav alry going into a tiglit. A tooth for a tooth was not enough for Roberts, and he coolly sliced off his victim's cars, working slowly and doing a lirst rate job. Then he sh ived the warrior's top knot off tiiid turned him loose to liu l his friends and receive their praises on his early assumption of fall style. The wretch didn't wait a second after being told to go didn't even ask for his ears as pocket-pieces. R ihert h i them piiuiel up a relics, wiihabijful of teeth hanging above Ihe.n, aa 1 to strangers he explains: "Tlie darned Injun who pick n.y molars with Lis Thota is-ha vk wirts to leave the c eintry on the very fi:t train, or he'll wish he'd been Lor:: a buzzard." UrJUIe IJibles- From the New York iiiuis. Formerly the lamp-chimney vexed the souls alike of the righteous and of the wicked because of its exceeding brittleness. It broke whenever a:i ef fort was ma le to clean it. and frequent ly ii Hew into pieces when no man wa- touching it. and merelv of its own wicked will. Men with small salaries Avere often brought to the brink of ruin by the constant drain upon their pockets vyhich resulted from the effort to keep two or three lamps supplied with chimneys, and it is believed that Mr. Oilman was induced to steal .S00. 000 chiefly because his pride led him to use none but unbroken lamji-chim-neys although in his pathetic and veracious confession he unaccountably fai! to mention the fact. Xow, liow cAer, ti.e invention of llaslie glass has rendered tiie chimney no longer a grief an I a burden. The new Rustle chim ney can not be broken with anything short of a sledge-hammer. It can be - ,lsei1 as :l Ibimmer wherewith to drive nails and to loosen the bungs of beer barrels, or sis si club for the siccomoiLi tion of burgl.ii-3, or for the purpose of instilling great moral lessons isito the minds of youth. Thus the lamp-chimney is cured of it brittleness, sind no longer exhausts the pocket and ruins the temper of the householder. The human baby is, of course, far more complicated in its structure than is the simple lamp-chimney, but it shares with the old fashioned type of the latter the fault of extreni ; brittle ness. It is true that the baby does not bresik in consequence of unequal expansion or contraction, and can be submitted to extremes of heat sind cold without cracking; neither doe3 it tly in pieces Avhen left to itself, even when bent stud twisted by the severest colic. Xevertheless, si baby is aim ist certain to bresik when dropped, even from a very small height. This can ba demon strated by a very simple experiment. If ive take a baby of s ay six months old, and of the weight of about thirty rounds, sind drop it from si height of four feet to the' floor, it will break into from two to eight pieces. Of course, the pieces remain attached to each oth er by clothing and pins, but that its framework is broken si very superficial inspection will show. It is th is extreme liability to break which renders care ful men so reluctant to hold babies. A man who accidentally 1 re tks a baby i;wavs finds liimse'f iu a nunpleasant position, and the baby's mother is sure to show by her m.in'i..t that .she regsirds him sis careless and aw'kward. The worst feature of the case is that a bro ken bah can rarely be repaired s.i as to be in all respects sis strong sind beau tiful sis it originally avsis, stmf in case it is hopelessly broken, it is impossi ble to replace itinsiwsiyth.it will prove satisfactory io its owners. Hence, the wise man carefully abstains from hand ling babies, whether he has any share in their oAvnership or not. The brit tleness of babies is, moreover, a source of much trial to nurses, and debsirs the small boy from much innocent amuse ment. Were the baby firmer and tougher jn texture, it would te very useful sts a club in drivingaway strange dog3 and objectionable children both of Avhich constantly molest nuraes in our public parkland it could a!so i.o used by the small boy precisely as a pillow is now used, sis a weapon of of fense in the deadly pi.-low-lights which lay low so many stout clocks, and gal Lint bronze statuettes. The discovery thsit the brittlenes of lamp-chimneys can be overcome ha stimulated a St. Louis parent to invep. a style of baby tii.it cart not bo readily broken. He recently tried an experi ment with si novel baby which uppeai to have established very thoroughly its remarkable toughness. The baby in question avsis of the girl pattern, and outwardly resembled all other babies of the same age and sex. It was put licly dropped from the fourth story si building on Ashley stivtt.and stru a hard stone pavement, sifter a f;dl v." at least fifty feet. Tht,se who saw ll supposed accident wore filled with Ik ror. and had not the slightest dot that the boy was smashed in a tin sand fragments. A philanthropic m -hastened to the spot with a basket,;, a coroner Avho had been hunting t . succcssf ully for corpses since thee.i dawn, gave si triumphant whoop a- proceeded to impanuel a jury with, delay. To the un mingled sis'.oni -mentof everyone and the uus;.e:, able disgust of tho coroner, the b -; was found to be unhurt, an.l aa picked up was found to be in the . of playfully swallowing ;i horse-: that happened to lie within ilsn The most thorough inspection fail, find a bruise or a break anywheri the surface or in the interior of the fant. Its toughness was denioisslru and it is hardly necessary to say t although the public and the lOCrt'j p,.t regarded the baby's fall sis an siccid. there can be little doubt it was dr . ped as sin experiment by iu confide inventor. If the proems by which this St. Le is baby was deprived of its natu brittleness proves to be applicable all infants, it will be of immer.se sti ice to mankind. The minds of t mothers will be relieved from const;, apprehensions in regard to windo and stairs. The fall of a baby fron topmost btory of an apartment I - V ingto the street l avement belo.v u 1. not create the slightest ui easiness, .-. cept, of course, iu th ; man on win new hat it may fall. and theg,ll(. whl is now placed at the lieu 1 f the Ptsi r in houses i.ufestel with infants a become entirely obsolete.
