cated the spending of (75,000 in building an

An Important Case 1'ondliiK In the
United States Court.
A somewhat complex land title case came
up before Judges Dundy and 13rowor in the
United Slates court. A man named Hurley
owned land in Lancaster county , in this
state , und a man named Flynn began a suit
to quiet titlo. Hurley resided In Maryland
and could not bo sorvcd with n summons nnd
the latter was executed Ihrugh the news
papers of this stale. When the case cauio
up in the district court Flynn was granted
the title , in action , to the lands. Flynn then
sold the land to Uickotl & Wilson , und they
in turn disposed of it to a man named Arndt.
Hurley , after the decree had boon granted ,
disposed of tlio land to Griff * , nml now Arndt
and Griffs are contesting ownership. In an
ejection suit of Griftn against Arndt a ruling
was made in favor of the former by the
United States supreme court on tbo grounds
that the decree granted Flynn was void.
In this Judge Hrowcr agreed but Judge
Dundy dissented , and accordingly a certill-
cute of division was agreed upon and the
Huino will be referred back to the supreme
court for final action. The uiutLor of a .iln
referring It is to settle the point of law as

A Steamship Arrival.
At Philadelphia The BrUsh King from
.The Jews In Ecynt.
Baltimore Sun : Cuneiform tables
found during the present year in the
grnvo of royal scribe of Amonoplila III.
and IV. , of the XVIII. dynasty Imvo
brought to liht | a most interesting
chapter in the history of unciont Egypt.
It has been known that largo numbers
of Semites of the same race as the Is
raelites nnd possibly themselves Israe
lites fought in the Egyptian urmios
and built the great wall on the cast of
Egypt and pyramids in the Nile valley ,
but it has not till now been nuulo clear
what first led to the migrating from
Mesopotamia to the land of the Pha
raohs. The tablets explain the puzzle.
They are for the most part letters ad
dressed to Amcnophis , nnd among them
is the correspondence of this king with
Tushratta , king of Mesopotamia.
AmonophiH , it appears , was a mighty
hunter. In the lirst ten years of his
reign ho killed , it is alleged , 102 lions
with hla own hand in the plains of
Mesopotamia. Co this as it may , in the
course of one of hid oxpedUions
in bourch of big gu-ino no mot
Ti , the lovely daughter of Tushratta ,
and foil in Move with her. His suit
prospered and in due time their nup
tials wore celebrated , and Ti went down
into Egypt accompanied by 317 of her
principal ladies , These Scinotio beau
ties produced , it appears , a favurablo
impression upon the Egyptians. Their
charms led to the advent of others of
their countrymen , who , finding" that
Egypt offered a favorable Hold for their
inherent business capacities , settled
down in great numbers and gradually
acquired possession of tliu lauds taud
goods of their hosts. The fact of the
preservation of this library of cunnoi-
form tablets testilies to the inlhienco of
Queen Ti. Under her protection her
countrymen probably enjoyed excep
tional privileges. At any rate during
her reign they prosnorod greatly , and
during the reigns of the feeble sovereigns
eigns that followed Ainonophis III they
were probably able to maintain their
position. Hut with the advent to power
of the XIX dynasty came n chunge.
Tlio aliens wore put to the uncongenial
tasks of making brink and building
walls , pyramids , etc. , until atlongih they
rebelled and loft Egypt in a body for Pal
estine. Inonoof tholottorstranslated by
Mr. Bodge , of the British museum ,
Tu hrnttn proposes lirst the continuance
of the arrangement mndo by their
fathers for pasturing doublo-humpod
camots , nnd thus loads up to the main
proposal , which U that Alunio , his great-
tiephnvr shall marry the daughter of
King Amouophis. Mania , ho suggests ,
might bo allowed to visit the young
lady nnd woo her In person. Suoh an
alliance'would , ho considers , ho a bond
of Union between the two countries. As
though by rvn afterthoughthe udda thut
an article Amenophis had asked for
would bo sant at once , and with it
"largo gold jars , largo gold plates and
other articles of gold. " The wily Tush-
ratta returns , after tltla meaning Inter
polation , to tlio inarrlaJTo question , and
promises to dUTta hanusoinnly in the
matter of the tlov ry as his grand father
had done on n 11 co occasion. As for
the resources of h s kingdom , ho boasts
that "its cold is 1 ice dust which cannot
bo counted. " lit cancludos with nn
enumeration of tl 0 presents of pence ho
sends by the hear ref the letter gold
vessels inlnld with lapls-lazuli ,
turonty pieces if Inpis-lazuli , nine-
Icon inlaid gel 1 objects of cased
gold , forty-two ol : , octs made of precious
stone , harness , cli iriots , carved wooden
articles , and tin rty ounuchs. Lapis
lazuli , harness and chariots snoin to
have been imported largely into Egypt
from Mesopotamia , A letter from
Kuri-Gatou , Klngt > f Knrndunlynsh , the
traditional Garden of Eden , to Amno-
phis IV. , asks for gold for the ornamen
tation of the house of his god , and olTors
in return anything. Amenophis may
want from Babylonia. Monnwhllo
Kuri-Galzu sends , u lot of Inpls-lazull ,
ten sots of narncss , flvo chariots and
various woods. A.third letter from the
King of Alashlya to Amonophls shown
that very pleasant International rela
tions existed. The writer nsks that the
property of a subject ot his who Imd
died in Eg.ypt bo sent back to his lam-
lly. Ho begs also that Amenophis will
accept "live vessels of bronze , the like
of which are not mtulo In I3gypt , " with
a hull Amonophh had nskou for. Ho
premises to so ml also certain trees the
Icing of Egypt desired. In return for
nil his gifts' the Iring of Alashiya asks
for only "two kukupu jar.- > and a man
who understands eagles. " What a
"kukupu" jar is wo are unuablo to say
precisely , but it appears from those
letters that dales
the hrlc-a-brnc crane
back to 1000 13. C. and perhaps u good
deal farther.
Types of Frontier Idfo.
Theo. Roosevelt in Century : I have
always boon treated with the utmost
courtesy by cowboys , whether on the
round-tin or in camp ; and the few ronl
desperadoes that I have soon wore also
perfectly polite. Indeed. I never was
shot at maliciously but onco. This was
on an occasion when I had to pass the
night in a little frontier hotel where
the barroom occupied the whole lower
lloor , and was in consequence the plnco
where everyone , drunk or sober , had to
sit. My us&ailant-was neither a cowboy
nor a bona lido "bad man , " but a broad-
hattod rulllan of cheap and common
place type who had for the moment tor- the other men in the barroom ,
these being mostly sheep herders tvnd
small grangers. The fact that I were
glasses , together with my evident de
sire to avoid a fight , apparently gave
him the impression a mistaken ono
that I would not resist nn injury.
The deadly nITray that took placa in

and each wusa , mfh ; with ti varied past.
The Scotchman , a'notod bully , was tbo
more daring of the two , but he was
much too hotheaded and overbearing
to bo a match for his gray-oycd , hard-
featured foo. After a furious qunrrol
and threats of violence , the Scotchman
mounted his horse , and , rlllo in hand ,
rode to tlmrJ Qon of tb& " mud ranch

wife of the vLetor in ' 'this ' contcbtf tHb"
husband lumStalf 'dhlfoiiig opposite. It
was the la-ncbrsJand , Ho knew nil the
steps far bettor-than I did. Ho could
have danced a-minuot very well with a
little practice. The sbone reminded
ono of thd ball where Br'oto Ilnrto's
heroine "flanco'd down the middle
with the man who shot. Sandy Magee. "
But though thcro were plenty of
men present each of whom had shot his
luckless Sandy Mngco , yet there was no
Lily of Poverty Flat. There is an old
and true border saying that "tho fron
tier is hard on women and cattle. "
There are some exceptions ; but , as a
rule , the grinding toil and hardships of
a life passed in the wilderness , or on its
outskirts , drive the beauty and bloom
from n woman's , face long before her
youth has loft hor. . By the time Hho is
a mother she lasin'ewy und angularnnd
thin , compressed lips and furrowedsal
low brow. But she has a hundred qual
ities that atones for the grace she lacks.
She ia a good mother nnd a hardworking
ing housewife , always putting things to
rights , wushitig and cooking for her
stalwart spousrt and offspring. She is
faithful to her husband , and , like the
true American thut she is , oxaots a
faithfulness in return. Peril cannot
daunt her , nor hardship and poverty
appall her. Whether on the mountain
in a log hut chinked with moss , in a seder
or adobe hovel on the desolate prnlrie ,
or in a mere temporary camp.whero the
white-topped wagons have been drawn
up in a protection-giving circle near
some spring , Hho is equally at homo.
Clad in a dingy gown and a hideous sunbonnet -
bonnet , eho goes bravely about her
work , resolute , silent , uncomplaining.
The children grow up pretty much
ns fate dictates. Even when very small
they seem well able to protect them
selves. The wife of ono of my teamsters -
stors , who lived in a small outlying
camp , used to keep the youngest and
most troublesome members of her fam
ily out of mischief by the simple expe
dient of picketing them out , each child
being tied by the log with a leather
strin'g. toastalccdrivon into the ground ,
BO that it could neither get at another
child nor at anything breakable.
Tlio best buckskin maker that I ever
mot was , if not a typical frontiers-
woman , at least a woman who could not
have reached her full development save
on the border. She inado llrnt-cluss
hunting shirts , Coggings and gauntlets.
When I knowtyqr she was living alone
in her cabin in mMrprairlo , having dis
missed her husband six months urovl-
ously in an oxpqed iigly summary man
ner. She not only possessed rodoubt-
nblo qualities of hond and burnt , but
nlso a nlcn HOIISO of justice , even toward
Indians , thnt in npt always found on the
frontier. Once , going thcro for a buck
skin shlrl , I mot at her cabin three
Sioux , and from their loader , named ,
One Bull , purchased a tobacco pouch ,
beautifully worked with porcupine
nuills. She had given them some
dinner , for which they had paid with a
door.hldo. Falling i'nto conversation
slio mentioned that just before I came
up , n while man , apparently from Deadwood -
wood , had passed by and had tried to
steal the Indians1 horses. The latter
had boon two quick for him , had run
him down and brought him hack to the
cabin. "I told "em to go right on and
hang him , and I wouldn't never cheep
about It , " said my informant ; "but they
lot him go after taking his gun. There
ain't nosonso in stealing from Indians
anyjuore than from white folks , and
I'm not going to have it round my ranch
neither. Thcro ! I'll give 'om hack
the door-hldo they give mo for the din
ner and things , anywiiy. " 1 told her
that 1 sincerely wished wo could .make
her Bhorifl nnd Indian agent. She
made the Indians and whites too , for
that matter behave themselves and
walk the stralghtost kind of a line , not
tolerating the least symptom of rebel
lion , but she had u strong natural sense
of justice. The cowboy balls spoken of
nbovo nro always great events in the
small towns where they take place.
Being usually given when the round-up
passes near , everybody round about
comes in for them. They are almost al
ways conducted with great decorum ; no
unseemly conduct would bo tolerated.
There Is usually some master of the
ceremonies , chosen with duo regard to
brawn as well as brain. lie calls off the
figures of the square dances w > thatoven
the inexperienced may got through
them , and incidentally preserves order.
Sometimes wo are nil owed , to wear our
revolvers , and sometimes not. "The na
ture of the band , of course , depends
upon the si'/.o of the place. I remember
ono ball that came near being n failure
because our half-breed liddlcr "wont
nnd got himself shot , " as the indignant
master of ceremonies phrased it. But
all these things are merely incidents in
cowboy's life. It is utterly unfair to
judge'tho whole class by what a few in
dividuals do in the course of two or three
days spent in towninstead of by the long
months of weary , honest toil common to
all alike. To appreciate properly his line ,
manly qualities , the wild rough-rider
of the plalarf should bo seen in bis own
homo. There ho passes his da.ys ; thcro
ho does his lifework ; there , when ho
meets death , ho faces it ns ho has faced
many other evils , with quiet , uncom
plaining fortitude. Brave , hospitable ,
hardy and adventurous , ho is the grim
pioneer of our race ; ho prepares the
way for the civilization from before
whoso face he must himself disappear.
Hard and dangerous though his exist
ence is. it has .Vet a wildjittraction that
strongly draws to it his bold , free spirit.
Ho lives in the lonely lands where
mighty rivers twist in long roaches
between the barren bluffs , where the
prairies stretch out into billowy plains
of waving grass , girt only by tlio blue
hori/.on plains across whose endless
breadth ho can steer his course for
.days and weeks and see neither man to
speak to nor hill to break the level ;
where the glory and the burning splen
dor of the sunsets kindle the blue vault
of heaven and the level brown earth till
they merge. together in an ocean
of llaming iiro.C. .
An Important Experiment.
Chicago Tribune : An elaborate sys
tem of experiments conducted by the
Agricultural college of Michigan show
that milk nnd butter products are
slightly increased by warming the
water drank by dairy cows. Prof. John
son , who directed these experiments ,
says the results are not so pronounced
in'favor of warm water as was expected ,
and the difference is so slight as
scarcely to pay for warming1 the water.
Though the gain in milk and butter
may hardly pay the dairyman , never
theless we may say the improvement of
the cow's condition by the artificial
warmth of the water is great. The an
imal may bo compared to an inanimate
motor lilce the steam engine , deriving
all its power for locomotion and diges
tion from its internal heat. Ordinarily
the heat necessary to keep the animal
in health and vigor and to enable it to
resist external cold is evolved within
its body by the mechanical changes
going on in the process of digesting its
food. When this supply of animal heat
runs low , as it Is sure to do in a severe
winter , the animal suffers In all its or
gans. But if the natural heat is sup
plemented by the artificial heat in the
water the animal drinks all its func
tions are strengthened and its ability to
endure severe cold is considerably in
Heat is also a powerful stimulant to
the heart , so that a cup of hot tea is
much more refreshing than a cold ono.
There is , therefore , every reason to be
lieve that if the Michigan experiments
were tried generally on dairy farms in
winter the results would decidedly in
crease the farmer's profits.
