We had to hang a man here the other

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

several i:cnbli tt devices with him to
Avax our hard-woi kiui people out
of tlieir dust, and he hadn't" been ia
camp more than two days when most
of his had points came out. At the
end of five days he Avas ordered to

.v irii. Tkerenp m, on the morning

No one cared what became of him or

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
"Trot out my goods, you wiiitediver-
ed dust-diggers, or we'll cut every

Oar old boss didn't like tluir style,

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. 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

A fter dinner the men gathered and

When asked if he didn't know the pen

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

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
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

his friends and receive their praises on

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'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 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 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

supposed accident wore filled with Ik
