THE FATE OF MORGAN.
A Singular Story.
In the fall of 1S70, while sitting on the
porch of the hotel in Santa Fe, New Mex
ico, a party of twelve horsemen approach
ed. Their horses were jaded and gaunt
si from a long and difficult jouruoy. The
riders were dressed in buck-skin over
ibirts, cavalry pants, heavy boots and
Urge Mexican spurs. Dismounting at
(be hotel, the horses and men were cared
for. A tall slim hickory iron sort of a
nan, who seemed to be leader, made ar
raugenients aside with thd landlord. After
tapper falling into conversation with the
leader of the parly, I learned, in the course
oi the evening, that they were a party of
prospectors sent out in the luouutaius in
Uio north part of X' w Mexico und Arizona
in the interests of a company of St. Louis
upitalist. The Captain, as he proved to
be, and a member of the company, wcut
u this perilous and totljome expedition
to Ratify a roving and restless disposition.
Tkey had gone beyond their, intended
limit at starting, and had penetrated the
edge of tho Apache country. They had
nomemerous fights with the Indians, but
being all old Indian lighter.-, had brought
11 their number back, though not with
out some ugly scars. At one time their
whole number were taken prisoner by a
mid-night surprise of double their number
of Apaches. They were held prisonors
tvs days, and marched toward the Apache
chief town, where they were to form the
lubiee', of a grand roast. But the second
night, they escaped by stratagem, taking
with them the leader of the Apache band,
whom they afterward released on certain
conditions. This loader is the blood thirsty
Apache Chief, the. chiel who murders men
women and children. y
The whole party, before their escape
understanding something of the captors
langnage, unknown to them, learned from
t word let fall here and them that the
Indians had knowledge of some very rich
mines, which the specimens they had with
Uiem amply showed; but from the desul
tory character of the remarks, could not
irsrn the location of this treasure; and it
was to this fact that that the chief owod

the rest of the baud to their long ho:nei.

It was formerly a custom among tho
Germans for the bride when sho was con
ducted to her chamber to take off her
shoo and throw it among the guests.
Whoever got it in the struggle to obtain
it regarded it as an omen that he or she
wotdd be happily marncJ. l hen the
Emperor Vladimir proposed marriage to
the daughter of Raguald she rejected him
saying, "I whM not tak off my shoe to
the son of a clave." Luther being at a
wedding told the bride that he had placi d
the husband's shoo at the head of the
bed aa a eiijn that he was to henceforth
govern. Train in his history of the "Isle
of Man' says, "on the bridegroom leuv
ing his house it was customary to throw
an old shoe after him, and in like manner
an old shoe after the bride on leaving ber
home to proceed to church, in order to
secure good Jack to each respectively,
and if by elratagem either of the bride's
shoes could be taken off by tbo spectators,
on her way from church, it had to be
ransomed by the bridegroom."
In Kent, England, after the couple
have started oa their tour, the single
ladies are drawn np in one row and . the
bachelors in another ; an old shoe Is then
thrown as far as possible, and the ladies
ran for it, the successful one being sup
posed to be tho first who will get mar
ried. She then throws the shoe at the
gentlemen, and the one who is hit by ft fe
deemed to be the first male who wOl enter
