AN AMERICAN IN THE FIRST
From first to last, men from the
United States, Americans, have taken
more or less prominent part in the
numerous Mexican revolutions. In
the very first revolution, that which
overturned the Spanish rule and estab
lished Mexico as a free and independ
ent republic, an American, one Ellis
P. Bean, born in Tennessee, took a
part more conspicuous than that of
any who came after him and better to
be known, for he recorded his experi
ences in a manuscript which one can
read in the appendix to Yoakum's
History of Texas.
Ellis P. Bean was born in eastern
Tennessee on the headwaters of the
Tennessee river, in 1780. Tiring of
his father's farm and longing for ad
venture, when but 10 years old he set
out for himself, iloated down the water
ways and arrived at Natchez on the
Mississippi in 1800. There he met
with a character evidently after his
own heart. Philip Nolan, who had
been engaged since 178") iu leading
trade expeditions across the river into
Spanish territory as far as San Antonio
in Texas. The trade was illicit and
must have been winked at by local
Spanish authorities, for Spain was
extremely solicitous against auy Amer
ican intrusion into that territory and
her laws were drastic upon the subject.
Men of a nation that had successfully
revolted against a king and established
their own republic were not such as
Spain desired among her Mexican
subjects lest the latter might absorb
some of their principles.
But the prohibition of Spain had
little effect on Nolan or those he in
duced to follow him on his expeditions.
To forbid such men from entering into
a territory makes that country so
attractive it is sure to be invaded.
In October, 1800, Nolan started
from Natchez on what proved to be his
last expedition with a company of
twenty men, and young Beau, 17 years
old, was of the number. The Spanish
authorities had determined to put a
tjuietus on these expeditions, and they
knew of this last one of Ntlan's. The
little company proceeded westerly
from the Mississippi, and on the
Washita were met by fifty Spanish
riders who would have stopped them
only they dared not. Nolan and his
men showed fight, and looked to dan
gerous to b attacked. At the Red
river three of Nolan's men lost heart
and returned to Natchez. The rest
pushed on, and six days from the Red
river they crossed the Trinity, and iu
the open country established a camp
aud busied themselves catching wild
horses, as their own horses were badly
worn out, and many had died. The
company had become reduced to
Nolan, five Spaniards, eleven Ameri
cans and a negro. At this camp they
were attacked by a troop of one hun
dred and fifty Spaniards with a field
piece, on March 22, 1S01. From be
hind a log inclosure built as a corral
for horses, Nolan ami his men stood
off their a3sailants from daybreak until
late in the afternoon. Nolan unfortu
nately was killed early in the action.
The rest, their ammunition running
low, surrendered finally, under condi
tion that they should be returned
under escort to their own country.
They were taken to the Spanish post
at Nacogdoches aud held, so they were
told, to await orders from Governor
Salcedo at Chihuahua in confirmation
of the terms of surrender. The orders
came after a month, but instead of
their liberty the Americans were each
put in irons and marched to San
Antonio, a little jaunt of some six
hundred miles. Here they lay in
prison three months. Then they were
marched to San Luis Potosi. well down
into Old Mexico, where they stayed in
prison sixteen months. After San
Luis Potosi the prisoners were started
for Chihuahua, where they were kept
as prisoners for five years. Bean made
continual unsuccessful attempts to
escape, and earned for himself the
reputation of a desperate and danger
ous man among the Spanish officials.
Ifce long delay in Chihuahua was in
itder to receive instructions from the
fcjajg of Spain, to whom the case of
tlwse prisoners had been submitted.
Tie order of .the king after this weary
ime, came along and was to the effect
fiat every fifth man of the prisoners
should be executed as a warning to
American filibusters and freebooters.
As there were but nine left, the local
Spanish authorities, having some de
gree short of extreme cruelty, con
strued the order to mean that one
only should suffer. A drum, a glass
tumbler and a pair of dice were
brought into the prison as equipment
for a most solemn gamble. It was
ruled that, commencing with the eld
est, each prisoner was to make a single
throw, and the one who threw the
lowest was to be the victim. The very
first, the eldest, threw the lowest, four,
while Bean, the last, escaped with the
barely higher number, five. The old
man was shot the next morning. The
next day Bean and four others, heav
ily ironed, were started off for the City
of Mexico, 1)00 miles away. The re
maining three were freed. From
Mexico the prisoners were sent to
Acapulco, on the Pacific Coats, and
confined in the castle there, three of
them in one large cell, and Bean in a
separate cell, because bad report of
him had been forwarded from Chi
huahua. Except the officer who
brought his daily food and examined
his irons and an occasional glimpse of
the sentinel passing the grate of the
cell door Beau saw no human. How
he relieved the tedium of so terrible a
confinement he tells in his manuscript.
"There is here a lizard Spaniards
call guija about nine or ten inches
long, three inches thick, white as
snow. One day, lying on my mat, 1
saw one of these; the first time on the
wall. I saw that he was trying to
catch the flies that had come iu when
the door was opened. I caught flies.
put them on the end of a straw pullid
from the mat. These I slipped up the
wall to him and found he would take
them from the straw. After some days
he was so gentle he would take them
from my hand. Every morning as he
came down the wall he would sing like
a frog, which notified me he was com
ing. In a week he was so gentle he
did not leave me at night, but stayed
all the time. Every day when they
opened the door to come aud examin;
my irons he would get frightened and
run under my mat. The door shut, he
would come out and stay with me."
On one occasion Beau was being
marched under guard of two soldiers
from a hospital where he had been ill.
The out of doors and the breath of the
free open air tempted Bean to try aud
make his escape. He had a few coins
he had managed to keep hidden in his
clothes and he invited his guard to go
with him into a drinking house on the
road and drink. After they had taken
several drinks he asked one of his
guards to step with him into a gar
den in the rear. In the garden Beau
called the soldier's attention to a very
beautiful flower and, as the soldier
stooped to admire, his prisoner pounced
upon, overpowered and disarmed him.
Bean tied the garden and escaped to
the wooded hills about the city, where
he filed off his irons with a piece of
steel housed in striking fire. He was
retaken, placed again in his cell and
stayed eighteen months longer in soli
tary confinement. Hearing the offi
cer who visited him every day speak
of having some rock to be blasted aud
no one who knew how, Bean informed
him that he was an expert in that
business. This caused him to be put
at such work in the quarries where he
lid prove most efficient at blasting.
In but few days after he began blast
ing, he succeeded in again escaping,
lie was again retaken and brought
before the governor of the castle at
Acapulco. After fearful threats from
that functionary Bean boldly told him
to do his worst, that he would never
cease trying his best to cscaje.
Bean was a "hard case" and the gov
ernor wrote the viceroy he would not
be answerable for him. The reply was
an order for this obstreperous prison
er's removal to the king's possessions
in Manila. While waiting a vessel
out in .Mexico ami tnc country was
aflame with insurrection. The "Span
iards emptied the prisonsof New Spain
to obtain recruits for their armies. At
Acapulco Bean alone was left a pris
oner in the castle. The Spaniards
knew his worth as a fighting man, but
had their doubts of him should they
take him as a recruit. One day his
officer questioned him on this point.
Bean expressed himself as eager to
serve the king if permitted. His irons
were knocked off, a gun and sword
placed in his hands. He became a
soldier of the king and performed his
duty well for three weeks. Then the
revolutionary forces under Morelos
had advanced their outposts into the
region about Acapulco and Bean,
seizing an opportunity, went over to'
them, taking with him a considerable
uouy oi nis ieuow recruits, lie re
mained with Morelos, grew daily in
his confidence, displaying great cour
age and infinite resource. Placed in
command of the division besieging
Acapulco, he took that town and its
castle and the very governor who had
abused him, in the year 1S12. In 1814
Bean was sent as emisary to the United
States to obtain sympathy snd help for
the revolutionary cause in Mexico.
He arrived in New Orleans just before
the battle with the British under
Packenham. He was not the man to
stay aloof from such a fight as that,
so he fought behind the ramparts with
Lafitte and his pirates and helped his
fellow Tennesseean, Andrew Jackson,
gain that glorious victorv.
We hear further of Bean that he
married Senorita Anna Gorthns, a rel
ative of Morelos, a young lady of fine
family, who lost all in the revolution.
By the turn of affairs, on account of
the success of the revolution, she be
came rich, the owner of a fine hacienda
three miles from Jalapa, where Bean
made his home and died October o,
1S46. There is no record of his tak
ing part, in any of the many civil dis
turbances that so soon distracted
Mexico after it became an independ
ent republic. He was the first Amer
ican to take part in a Mexican revolu
tion, and, in the long run, the most
fortunate. Kansas Citv Star.
flow to Overcome Your enemies;
Best Way to Make Them Friends.
By DR. FRANK CRANE.
Did you ever happen to overhear
not on purpose, of course, nor that you
are capable of eavesdropping, or of
opening letters that are addressed to
other people but did you ever happen
quite in spite of yourself and by pure
accident, to overhear some one talk
ing about you, or happen to glance at
a letter wherein some one was writ
ing about you, and discover that most
paralyzing, angering, amazing, and
agonizing of discoveries that some
one hates you?
It may Ire a person you were indiff
erent toward, or even one whom you
have tried to treat kindly, or some man
that is actually under great obligations
to you; and what a shiver then went
down your spine when you realized
that if you fell he would laugh, if you
lost money it would make him happy,
and if you ran into dark days of fog
and failure, sickness or shame, he
would think you had got your deserts!
Perhaps you have even been the re-
cipient of that nastiest and poisonestof
ambush shots, the anonymous letter,
in which the unknown knew all man
ner of vileness aboutyou and was ready
to dance on your grave.
And you have wondered at the mys
tery of the enemy, and the miracle of
hate. But you need not wonder.
Hate is the law of unintelligent pro
gress; love is the law of intelligent pro
gress. War is the method of progress
among brutes; coperation the method
of human progress.

FICIITINi; BASIS OF UNIVERSE?
All the universe seems to be organi
zed upon the principle of fighting.
What a long, grim battle sounds in
that cold scientific phrase, the survival
of the fittest!" It means that ever
since life appeared on this globe it has
existed struggling. The plants of the
field war upon each other until the
weakest are suppressed. The animal
cluse in a drop of water devour their
kind. One sort of corpuscles in the
blood eat other corpuscles. The big
fishes eat the little ones and the para
sites eat the whales. Nature, that
Tennyson calls "red in tooth and claw"
is a huge slaughter house.
The world's evolution upward has
been a progressive bloody war. John
Fiske says: "Battle far more deadly
than Gettysburg or Gravelotte have
been incessantly waged on every
square mile of earths's life bearing sur
face since life first began."
Among men of the past we see the
same sad spectacle we have observed
in the lower orders of animated exis
tence. History is a record of battles.
Nations feed on historic hates. Just to
be a German is to be loathed by all
Frenchmen. It seems sometimes as if
the biting lines of the cynic poet was
true: "Now hatred is by far the long
est pleasure; Men love in haste, but
they detest at leisure."
What a welter of feuds and grudges
is politics! Even the history of the
church has been far from a uniform
picture of brotherly love.
i:i-:coi:is blind oli: eyes.
Looking at all this record we are
easily deceived into concluding that
war is man's normal condition, that
business ought to be a competitive
struggle, and that we progress only by
contest. But as a matter of fact, we
forget here the important truth that
with the appearauce of man in the
world a new force entered. In the in
tellectual, moral, and social realm it is
not competition but co-operation that
The development of civilization has
been in spiteof and not because of wars.
Greece created her marvels of art and
letters by co-operation; these things
were destroyed by wai. Only as men
have learned to get together have they
advanced m the arts and inventions.
War of any kind is unnecessary,
stupid, and brutal. All the ends
sought could have been gained better
some other way.

man shall find a place to help and be
Now, with this general scheme in our
minds, let us return to the individual.
What about my personal enemj?
And in this matter let us note some
vu I uable points.
First We ought to be slow to be
lieve that any man h an enemy. We
should be on our guard against our
selves and remember how much easier
it is to believe in hate than in love.
Most of us despise and distrust oursel
ves, and we easily take it as true
that another despises and distrusts us.
Let us require overwhelming proof
Again, people talk a great deal with
out meaning any real evil. And there
is certain pleasure in saying cutting
and sarcastic things about a person.
The unpleasant thing that man said
about you, therefore, ten to one was
said just for the sake of making a re
mark that would attract attention.
Still again, most of the antagonism
we meet comes from people who do not
know us. It is not the man he detests
but the kind of man he thinks I am.
He hates my sect, my class of ideas,
my political party, my section of the
country, my grade in society. Few of
us hate individuals; we hate systems
and sections and creeds. "Don't in
troduce me to that man," said Sydney
Smith. "I feel it my duty to hate
him, and you can't hate a man when
you don't know him."
CHOICE OF THREE WAYS.
But, granting that is is finally es
tablished beyond any doubt that the
person is your enemy and wishes you
ill and does not like you, what are you
going to do with him?
There is a good deal of satisfaction
in fighting, but it is a wholly brutal
and unintelligent satisfaction. If we
stop and reason we will see that the
thing that displeases us is the fellow's
hatred. Now giving him blow
for blow will not stop that, no more
than piling sticks on a fire will put it
out, Anger and malice never cease by
contention. If you wish to change
the enemy's feeling toward you, you
will have to control yourself, resist
your desire to retaliate and go about
the business by another method.
program never removed any en

"Let there be no strife between me
and thee, and between thy herdsmen
and thy herdsmen, for we be brethren.
It is not the whole land before thee?
Separate thyself, I pray thee, from me.
If though wilt take the left hand then
I will go to the right; or if thou depart
to the right hand then I will go to the
left." An example of common sense
to recommend to all unmixable neigh
bors, relatives, and fellow citizens.
Third, and best of all, is to win your
enemy and make him a friend. Of all
things enjoyed by the spiritual epicure
the delight of turning an enemy into a
friend tastes the best. In order to ac
complish this, get acquainted with him.
Breakdown his barriers of repulsion.
Make him know you. Then find some
thing to like in him. Everybody has

turn good to him for his evil, for hr
so doing you are pitting a higher force
against his lower, intelligence against

MRS. EDDY'S GREAT WORK.
Oneoftke oat reasarkable women
of this or any other age passed from
the scene of worldly activity when
Mary Baker Glover Eddy went to
sleep to wake no mora to mortal con
sciousness. There may have been women whose
personality stood out in more marked
contrast with her kind, who were more
spectacular and made more noise in
the everyday life of a somewhat noisy
But for far reaching and enduring
effect upon mankind, the work of this
woman who died Saturday evening at
her home in Boston is unparalleled by
that of any other woman of ancient or
There has been much question as to
whether or not she was the originator
of the Christian Science system of reli
gion. She has been somewhat con
tentiously denied that great distinction.
It has been urged that she borrowed
from another the great idea upon
which she has built the stupendous
moral and religious structure that now
spans the globe, and which permeates
every American community as a mov
ing, vital moral force.
It really matters little to the world
whether Mrs. Eddy was or was not
the originator of the doctrines of Chris
tian Science. She it was who gave
them vitality, and through a long per
iod in which the mention of the cult
was held in popular derision, continued
to teach and elaborate the benefits it
offered until it compelled the attention
and respect of every community and
crept into wide popular favor. Today
this union of physical and spiritual
science which was a scoff and a by
word among religious people a genera
tion ago, vies with the old denomina
tional schools of religion in the num
ber and social status of its followers,
the dominance of its teachings and the
pretentiousness of its temples of wor
ship. Christian Science owes to Mary
Baker G. Eddy the hold it has secured
upon the devotional spirit of mankind
and every adherent of its church holds
her in reverential memory. Her
death will occasion world wide regret
and sorrow, although her span of life
has been as long in years as her useful
ness could survive. Her work will
live after her indefinitely, possibly un
til the end of time.
Her life has been a lesson of what
her teachings can accomplish. Of her
earlier years the world knows little.
Much has been said of it that was at
least uncharitable. Indeed much has
been said of her later years of useful
ness that was unkind.
But it is known that in middle life
the medical skill of that day gave her
but a short time to live. But she de
feated the promised fate and it is
possible that out of her intense desire
to prolong her life may have come
the teachings that so many thousands
have embraced as the best promise of
health and longevity for themselves.
Among the great women of the
world there has been none who has
left so great an impress upon the
world as Mrs. Eddy. Lincoln Star.
m Miters Luxury.
There was a Middlesex couple once
who lived on a sum to shock the most
reckless of our correspondents. Daniel
Dancer was the man. He looked on
saving as an art and saved for art's
sake. His father left him a farm and
eighty acres, and his sister helped him
carry out bis scheme of life. He let
the land lie fallow, says the London
Gest. It costs money to cultivate land.
For food the couple believed In one
day, one meal. The batch of dump
lings baked on a Saturday lasted out
the week. For clothing he depended
on hay bands "swathed round his feet
for boots and round bis body for a
coat" But Daniel had a weakness.
He wonld bny a clean shirt each year.
And out of this arose the tragedy of
his life a lost lawsuit over three
pence which, in Daniel's judgment, the
shirt seller bad wrongfully pocketed.
He died in 17W worth 3.000 a year.

the same method employed by his an
cient prototype, reading directions
where no words are written as clearly
as the gorgio does a roadside sign
board. But the patteran can be read.
by the gypsy only it Is bidden and
secret, although It may be in plain
sight; as a signboard is open and pub

sticks or stones or grass placed cross
fashion at the parting of roads In such
manner that only a gypsy would in
stantly notice and understand. To him
it means much first of all, the direc
