RECALLING STAKED PLAINS ,

A Washington correspondent of the
New York Telegram writes : Tin-recent
appointment b.the . president of Capt.
Henry .1. Farm-worth of the Kighth
Ca\airy to be major and inspector-gen
eral , does not appear to be well received
in the army , and he is likely to encoun
ter considerable opposition when it
comes before the scmite for confirmation.
Immediately following the announce
ment of Capl. Farncsworlh's appoint
ment it \\ns alleged that ( Jen. Miles had
entered a protest with the president ,
charging thai Cilpl. Fame-worth had e.x-
hibilcd cowardice in a campaign against
Ihe Indians. The reported action ot ( Jen.
Miles has since been denied upon the au
thority of Adjt. ( Jen Drum.
Before the promotions wore made in
the ' inspector kcncral's department an
nouncement was made in the newspapers
ami apparently upon authority from the
war department , thai the selection of an
ollieer Irom the line to fill the vacancy
would be made upon Ihe record of licld
service , due regard being paid to quulili-
cations for the duties ot inspector gen
eral. Following this announcement tlio
appointment of Captain Farnesworth
erealed gretil surprise in Ihe army , as
his record cannot bo compared witli that
of manv captains of the line who were
applicants lor tin-appointment. U'aptain
FaniMVorlli was appointed captain ami
quartermaster in .inly. 18(11 ( , anil per
formed ollico duty uulil the close of Hie
A\ar , which occurred nine montlis after
his appointment. InFitly , 18(17 ( , ho was
appointed to the regular army witli the
rank of lirsl lieutenant , and in 1870 was
made captain. Captain I-ariicsworthhas
doubtless iierformed faithful service on
tin- frontier with his regiment , but if
faithful and meritorious service were
nuule the test for preferment , there are a
hundred captains who would be selected
liefore Farnc.sworlh would be even con
AMWSIir.U IX A CANON' .
As the alleged cowardice of Capt.
Farnesworth will form Ihe basis of the
opposition that will be made lo bis con
firmation , a recital of the facts on winch
this | allegation is based will ho of inter
est. i Some I line in 1 7.1 , when Gen. Miles
was commanding an expedition against
the hostile Cheyennes , Capl. Fames-
worth was sent with a troop of cavalry to
attack an Indian camp on the Slaked
I'hiius ofTnxas. A captured Chcycnno
accompanied the command to net as
guide. Before reaching the hostile
c-imp the command was'lired upon by
Indians concealed in a canon for ravine ,
and several men and horses were killed.
Instead of making an offensive demon
stration Capt. I'arno-iworlh at once ord
ered , a ictreat. Two of his men who "had
been dismounted by the fire of the In
dians were unable to keep up witli the
retreating column , and received special
attention from Hie puraiiing savages.
Finally these two bravo men , realizing
that they had been .shamefully abandon
ed by th'eir ollieer , made u stand against
I lie Indians. The two soldiers were killed
one mile from the place where Ihe In
dians fired on Capt. FurnosworlliV-Jconi-
maud. The empty shells that surrounded
the dead bodies testified to llioir unflinch
ing bravery mid to the desperate charac-
ler of their resistance. The conduct of
Capl. FarticMVorlh on this occas on wtis
M-verely criticised at the time , and there
was talk of a court mailial. but the mat
ter was permitted to pass willioul oilieial
notice. It is , perhaps , in view of Ihe re-
inissiicss , of the military authorities , un
fair to revive this matter ten years after
tin-occurrence , but in view of the an
nouncement that Capt. Farnesworth was
.selected for promotion over his .seniors
in rank , and who had four years' service
in the rebellion before ho entered the
army as a quartermaster , it is but natur
al Unit Farnsworlh's competitors for the
appointment should feel disappointed
and make comparisons of their ami his
records. If this story of thnStaked I'laius
be substantiated before llio senate committee -
mittee on military all'airs , Cant. Fames-
wort Ii will experience some difficulty in
obtaining ullirmutivo action on his ap
pointment a.s major and inspector gen
( 'apt. Fariicsworlh is a Now York man ,
and : this fact gave rise to the report that
he is a son ot Adjutant ( ienornl Furns-
worth of that state. The captain , how-
over. Is not related to General Farns-
worth. His appointment a.s inspector
general was made by the president on
personal grounds. When llm president
was mayor of Imll'alo Cupl. Fameswoith
was on recruiting iservice at that city and
while the.ro became well acquainted with
Mr. lleeland. ! .

Winter Koei | of Cabbages.
Cabbages mayi he kept by any mode
\\hich nearly cxuljnles the frost , pre
serves a cool temperature and a slight
degree of moisture' A pile resting oil
the earth would keep better than if rest
ing a lloor , and M'otild rciiuirc less pro
tection. It would he likely thus lo re-
rehe a proper degree of moisture. It
would not be necessary to have walls of
hay six feel thick. A common way to
keep cabbages by Ihe quantity is to leave
them out in the ground until near tlm
end of November , and ( hen pull and
plaen ( hem Inverted on smooth
groiiful , packed closely together in
beds tivo or six feet Wiilo , witli six feet
spaces between. They may be thus left
for a week or two , or until'llic ground is
about to free/o , when the earth between
thn rows Is ilng mill placed as covering
on the. inverted heads about six Inches
thick , thn tips of the roots projecting
above. With less labor the spaces may
linidoM'ed and harrowed until the earth
Is line nnd mellow liefore it is placed on
( he cabbages , the plow throwing the
earth nearest to them upon the. heads.
With this treatment the work must be
done earlier than by hand in order to
have the soil in right condition , and it is
always best to cover them as Into
as practicable. It is important that
the ground hns very thorough drain
age , tjo-cph Harris regards it as of jjreiit
importance to plow ( ho earth many times ,
and making it mellow two fei t deep in
forming a trench or hollow to place them
in , and then the mellow earth is thrown
against the heads with the plow. The
frost cannot penetrate the mellow earth
it only crusts it. If the work is done
before very cold weather si-Is in Hie cen
tral part of the row- may ho left nearly
uncoxercd , and when free/ing commence
mence- , the whole covered \\ilh the mel
low soil. For early winter use cabbages
may be Mored in cold cellars packed in
large boxes of damp moss , or they may
be set in their natural position in low-
boxes filled with ojirlh , dump moss , or
placed in heaps out of doors , and covered
with a foot of chad'and with straw.

The meeting was arranged by Dr. Ward ,
who holds himself'responsible for tlm
whole business. This widow is about lit ) ,

ington. The prcsidiMit and Miss lto.se
are totally unlike each other in their
thoughts and actions , anil the latter is
wholly absorbed in her literary labors.
The ladies of Washington woufd rejoice
to see the president wedded to a good
wife , but perhaps two or three belles who
have sot their cap for the president
would be sorely disappointed. "What a
grand wedding wo will have , " exclaimed
one of the attaches of the White House ,
"if this rumor proves true. "
A Bit of IScnl till'o.
New York Sunday Mercury : A lady
whose iiiuno we purposely withhold sends
the following strange story of real life to
the t Sunday Mercury , and requests it to
decide upon rival olaiins ol love and
KditorN. Y. Sunday Muroury Would
you please nflvise what to do in the fol
lowing circumstances ? A lady in the
thirties attached herself to a boy of six
teen , making him her escort to church and
other places , giving liim presents , caress
ing him. etc. , keeping up intimacy with
the utmost por.sistoney on her part as ho
grew up. Vimilly he hecamo attached
to a young lady more suilable lo his own
age , u high spirited and every way dcsir-
abln party , and gladly welcomed by his
parents ; but lids lormor friend' still
holds on to him by presents and flatter
ing attentions , making double between
them. Ho keeps away for a time , but
she njways gol.s him back , and it looks
sometimes as if she will bo the cause of
breaking the engagement. What ought
to bo donor
If ( ho young man is really in love with
the young lady whom his parents ap
prove , the sooner he marries her the bet
ter ; and if the yoilng lady is us high-
spirited as represented , she will make
snort work of her mature rival. The at
tachment of n woman to a youth half her
ago is generally n morbid ono , neither
becoming to her nor its object , ft ought
to bo easy for the boy when grown lo
manhood to break away , for if Hie In so
weak and vacillating as lo bo influenced
by presfiits and attentions from his
ancient admirer , llio prospect for happi
ness on the part of the fulurn wife sub
stantial. The Mercury's advice is that
tin : high-spirited damsel should forth
with bring her lover to book and insist
Unit he shall at ouco and forever make
choice between the old tlamo and the
new. If he liosllatcs or makes o.xoiiso ho
is not worth u second thought , for ho
cannot love as ho should , ami only un-
mppinos.s would follow a union with
Tlio Greatest Mjdlcal Triumph of the Ago !

\\as a grand scamp , n hravn , reoklos
rullian , hut he had some very good
points. Vor instance , he could niakc ov
collont hoc-cakes and ho was cheerful
and companionahli1 , and could tell high
ly interesting lies. Wo hccainc attached
to caeh other , and , though I knew
he was a murderer and a thief ,
and that ho was Milling whisky
to the Indians nnd smuggling
opium noroxs the lilio from I5ritili Co-
Inmliia , 1 did nut care. I was voting and
curclcs.- . . and hcsidcN as I .said , he could
make OM'clh-nl hoc-cakes. One evening ,
as wo sut side hv\ side on the saud.\ Mill ,
leaning against the house and .smoking
our alter-Mipper pipes , anil 1 was lis
tening to a it-marknhlit lie ahout a hear
that Irightcned all ( lie oilier heard
out ot an c\ti'ii"ive mountain range
l > y traiiduhmtly using a long pole
to mark his height on the IICPS , a group
of Indians , dri\iug cattle he fore them ,
rode from hchind a rocky point that was
thrust inlo the \\atersot the Colmnliia.
Instantly Mutch sprang to his feet and
rnsht'd into tln > ciihin. lie put on a cun
ningly-devised harness that held two
navv sivslmotors in a handy position
under his arms. IK- put on his coat. Ho
pulled at the pistols to sec that they wcro
looM- and that there would he no hitch in
the performance if anything more than a
rehearsal .should bo ivipiircd. In a few
ininulcs the party of hor-i-mon drew rein
in hunt ot the caliin. There were llnvo
younu : bucks from AIo es' cam ] ) in the
( Jraml Coulee. Butch greeted them
cheerlully and helped to corral the cat
tle. Then he told me that these men
wcio the --elected poker-plii.vr-i of Ihe
Columliia Plains Indians ; ( hat they had
hccn slaked hy the trihe to play with
him in hopes of winning a number of
cattle. Yes , lie said , the cattht were t la-
lli'fore the first haml was dealt Ituteh
quietly informed the Indians that Kng-
lisli and Chinook only could lie spoken at
the table , and that the first Indian who
spoke in his own ( and toliutcli unknown )
tongue would have the lop of his head
shol oil' . The braves cheerfully agreed
to tills condition. Then the rclative.xuluc
of cowo , calves , and Meeis was agreed
upon. They decided to play ta
ble slakes. The cheeks were pistol
and musket balls. Ten pi tel
balls \\cro equal in value to a calf , or tea
a musket ball. Thueo mitskct halls
equaled a cow in value. A heavy Cal-
itornia blanket was thrown over a rough
table. A caudle was thrust in a tomato
can that was lilled with beans , and the
mime began. The strong wind ceased
blowing. The silence of llio plainswas
broken only by the. m.\slerious groan
ing _ and .signing of tl'io mighty river
as it swept past the cabin lo the
.sea. Hour after hour passed , nnd
not a word was spoken by the placers.
With faces a.s iinuliangcahlo as I iron A *
the three Indians phued , and. fa\orcd
hy the dim light and the fact of Huleli's
having but one e. > e , Jiow t he , ) did cheat !
The luck varied , as it always docs in a
poker game. Now they wo'uld bo ahead
1 dropped asleep , and when 1 awoke it
was nearly morning. Hutch's buck was
toward me. 1 saw some cards thriibl. un
der his coat collar. I know he was wait
ing for ( he end lo come. Ono of the In
dians dell. Hulch picked up Ids cards ,
raised his hand lo scratch the back of
his neck , adroitly exchanged llio cauls
ho hold for those in reserve , mid then
thrust the cards ho had received below
his shirt-collar. Then he turned to me.ev
posing thohackof his head lethe Indians ,
and he winked a wink of great sagacity
at mo. He talked to me for an instant
and then turned to the table. Ho was an
aged man. The Indian to ids left bcl a
calf. The next one straddled it. The
dealer went a cow botti-r , and Hutch saw
it all and raised the pot two cows better ,
All .staid. All stood pat. Then the hot
ting began in earnest. It went on until
ail the cattle the Indians brought
were staked. Then caiiio llio show
down. Hutch had four queens
and an aco. The Indians all had fours ,
which they had stolen , of course. They
gruulcd loudly. They struck their
mouths with the palms of their hands to
express surmise Then they hade us
good-by ami mounted , and hinging as
lliey rode disappeared in the fninl , gray
light of early morning. Hiileli hud won
thirty head of cattle. As we got break
fast the king of clubs fell out of Hutch's
right tioiHcrs log.
