A STORY OF A HEROIC GIitL.
On the border of Greeu Lake, in Min
nesota, there lived a slurdj, white, haired
irontier-mau named Walter lirown. II
was one of those adventurous spirits vet
to be found in the van of advancing civil
ization, always courting the freeseyild air
of the prarie, and njoyiiig in the profound
depths of uninhabited forests.
But the country hecatire more and more

deuce at the hudwaters of the M. Croix,
whom ho called Leonora, ttho was a
good girland the idol ot her father. He
ptuchaicd a rifle for her when she was
lt.it Ivm I vi' yr.ru old, and took the utmost

the number of iirmrio chickens, partridg
es,' wild witcr fowls, and other email
game she managed to shoot c e y day,
was really large Occasionally she wtuijd
shoot a deer, and one eventful morning,
by a lucky shot through the eye into the
brain, she killed a hear.
When she come home with the news
her father could scarcely credit her. But,
knowing her perfectly truthful ua'nrc, he
danced about the room for joy, and seiz
ing the sturdy little maid,' he mounted her
upon his shoulders and insisted noon cur
rying her all the way to the spot where
the dead bruin lay.
Thicket and thicker flowed the tide of
emigration into Minnesota .mil Wisconsin,
following thu navigable rivers as a matter
of course, and more and more uneasy and
"crowded" fell Waller Brown. At length
his wife died. Leonora was then sixteen,
and en -raged to he married to a handsome
young trapper by the name of Watson,
who had joined her father in business.
The dualb of the moiher hud made it
necessary to postpone the wedding, and
in the interim old vValter decided to move
into northwest Minnesota. Neighbors
were getting loo near and bunting and
trapping were had. As the young man
had prowed up and pro i mnti d n
section of laud near lay lor si tills, and
did not wish to either abandon or sell it
just then, persuaded Leonora To agree to
write to bitr, he bade her au affectionate
Brown lived fn Minnesota for three ot
four years in peace and quiet, finding
good trapping and hunting grounds, when
all at once yrrung Wat'soii arrived, and re
newed the proposition of marriage with
Leonora. The old man had about deter
mined to move no more, and had accord
ingly located and pre-empted several
thousand acres of land about him, and
learning from Watson that he had money
cnongh to do likewise, proposed that he
should go down to St Paul and buy land
warrants with his money, and take up all
the land he could "swing." lie might
then marry Leonora, and ihcy too would
go to work, and after building plenty of
stabling, etc., would get, a good stock of
cattle and sheep, and try and lead a pas
toral life for the rest of their days. '
To this proposition the young man
heartily assented, and after returning from
St Paul, wont bravely to work, iu the
woods, felling trees for building purposes.
It was agreed first that they should build
a new In-wed log house for the united
family, as Watson had eot up a small
single room cabin. Then the weddiug
waa to take place, and the two men would
again resume their work.
Wbilo thus busily engaged the Sioux
war b eke oat. it was the habit ot Leouora
to take her riflo out every morning and
shoot prairie chickens for ihe table, while
her lover and lather were at work on the
new house Watson had brought her as
a present from St. Paul a light and hand

mensely fond, and with which she be

to witness the hortibhs butchery of herj
father and lover at once.
But this did not seem to t the purpose
of the Indians, for, tying thelarms of their
captors behind them, they i-nk to the ca
noes, where, taking the old wan into"ono
and the young dWaq iofo the other, they
shoved boldly into the lake and paddled
rapidly down to where tjc house stood.
Leonora divined their inteiit instantly.

About thirty rods to the right of the path

she concealed herself.

gaily and langbiiigly along toward the

The bullet proved tree to its mark, and
the burly Indian merely threw up his
arms and fell dead, the itfo ball having
gone directly through bis heart.
A clap of thunder from a clear sky
could not have so utterly astonished those
remaining Indians. Wildly t'. ey looked
in etejy tjirwtioii to see whence come
tbc fatal shot. In the next instant bang !
went Leonora's rifle again, and another of
their number dropped dead.
But they saw the smoke of the last shot
and caught a glimpse ot the shooter. At
once they' comprehended their peril.
Tbey could not hide, and their only show
was in running to the free and tomahawk
ing their presumptuous foe ou the spot.
Instantly sounding tlie war-wboop, the

was a long, neavy one, urawu uy a ,ww

there is an embankment, of fifteen feet
high where the road curves so sharply
that two approaching trains cannot seo
each other until close together. It was
. i . . , i' II!
at this perilous spot, of all others, that
these approaching trains, each uncon
scious of the other's presence, and each
thundering forward at a rapid rate of
speed, were doomed to meet. 1 here was
bnt one instant's warning of the terrible
danger to which the express train was
running, too short to permit it to he aver
ted. The two engines rushed at each other
like malign and enraged monsters, grap
pled with a tremendous crash, reared from
the track in a mortal wrestle, and fell
helpless and disjointed fragments on the
ground. The shock was terrible. The
tender, baggage car, and the two forward
passenger cars of the express train ou

cars of the freight train on the other.rnsh

on that placid May morning, a disordered

of forty human beings entrapped and mu
tilated beneath its shapeless mass. There
was no warning to the p issengers and
none of them had time to jump and escape
from the fate that come so suddenly and
swiftly. One moment they were in the
repose of imagined security ; the next
they were crushed dead, or maimed be
tween an incumbent weight that held them
as in a vico. The two engines were driv
en with such force into each other that it
was almost impossible, after thu collision,
to distinguish the parts of one from the
'tog'etuoTiiTe cars tamgslmrercd into long
slivers, and the scats, wheels, trucks and
irons blended into an indescribable heap
that lolled off down the embankment. -The
three rear cars of the express train
shared the concussion, but escaped the
fate of the two forward ones. Alter the
collision, they were found standing stiff
and still on the track, with their brakes
close up, showing that tho brakesmen had
done their duty well in responding to the
engineer's whistle, before they leaped from
It was chaos and death combined. The
engines both on the same side of fhe em

The baggage car and the one next to it
were shivered as if by internal explosion,
and the mage of broken; timbers, iron rods,

To the attentive friends and correspon

since In Ashe county, N. C, near the
Tennessee line. Terrific, rough and fatal

assured that i he parties participating in it
are regarded as good citizens by the peo
ple of their immediate vicinity. Each of

from the productions of their land.
From the evidence adduced before the
J ust ice who bad the case on trial we make
up this summary :
It seems that tho wife of Jas. Daven-
Eort became jealous, old as she proves to
i ve been, of a young girl named Kate
Jackson, represented as being very lova
"Orace was all her steps, heav'n in raw eye,
In every KcwHire tiitrinty snd love."
Frequent quarrels and contentions be
tween Mrs. Davenport and Miss Kate had
occurred, however, notwithstanding.
Ou the day of the fatal collision, it ap
pears that Miss Kate Jnckson, in compa
ny with her married sister, Mrs. DeAr
mand, passed the residence of the Daven
port family. As soon as the sisters were
discovered on the road, the Davenport,
six in number, comprising the mother,
three daughters, two of them grown, and
two sons, the eldest abont eighteen years
old, rallied in force, and set ont in vigor
ous pursuit of the defenceless sisters. The
trail wss eontinncd until the sisters had
nearly reached the Tennessee line. Here,
the Davenport brothers, by a military
movement, strategctically flanked them,
and presented a front armed with sticks .
and stones. This caused Kate and her
sister first to bslt, and then to attempt to '
retrace their steps. Bnt on attempting to
retreat they were confronted by Mrs. Da
venport and the three daughters similarly
armed, who demanded Mrs. DeArmand to
get out of the way, as they intended to
kill Kate. Instead of obeying this mili
tia order Mrs. DeA. made preparations to
defend her sisier. Young Davenport, the
elder son, seeing this opposition to his or
der, at once let go a stone at her, which
took effect on her head, breaking her
skull, and prostrating her lifeless ou the
ground. ' "Z&Z '
of life" engagement, left to defcntl herself.
She rallied and maintained her line by in
discriminately hurling upon the attacking
party.Buch flinty missiles as came oppor
tune to her. One of these shots took im
mediate effect upon the elder Davenport
boy, slitting one side of his face open an-1
placing him hers du combat. Tnrnii. ';
her attention, then, to the maternal head
of the Davenport family, she directed
stone against her head that inflicted a se
vere wound and laid ber sprawling on the
field. This accomplished, the heroic girl
slowly fell back to a position where she
could supply herself with necessary am
munition. This point obtained, and be
ing still besieged, she again discharged a
shot, and another of the Davenport boys
wilted. 1 hen tho Davenport girM ral
lied and made a desperate charge upon
her with clubs and stones, inflicting seri
ous wounds but not succeeding in setting
her down. Just at this crisis, Kate, hard
pressed os she was, and having no time
to stoop to gather jocks to defend herself,
extricated from her pocket she had a
pocket a small pen-knife, measuring
about six inches in die blade, and com
menced an indiscriminate and wild and
general cutting and slashing at the com
hiiivd Davenport girls surrounding ber.
The result of this fearful phrenzv on
the part of Kate was aerionsly detrimen-
tal to the well-being of the Davenport fp
males, two of them received serions
slashes from the insignificant weapon she
wieldeffj one of them dropping on the
field from loss of blood lt flooding from
the knife, and the other so seriously disa
bled as to be a fit subject fur hospital ser
vice. This unexpected result contributed ma
terially to the immediate withdrawal of
the remaining Davenport beseigiug party, )
who qnietly removed their disabled from
the field, leaving the heroic Kate master
of the situation.
The casualties sustained in this en
gagement only amount to the death of
Mrs. DeArmand, with the 'probability that
the elder Mb Davenport will also die,
and the crippliitg for life ol four others of
tlie Davenport 'family.
Kate Jackson was less injured than
any one engaged in the fight, and was "
aide to carry her dead, sister home after
