I wa:> couiieete I with a survey sent
out to vimiij a line along the twen
ty liftii irell'-l. We ha I come down
tli 11 i . Gran froin San Louis Park
in Colorado, and the inhabitants of
uvi.n Ji i:ii 1• ■ t we stopped at celebrated
our coming by an inevitable fandango.
'J In e fandangos, or dances, were held
at tie- fund i, or hotel, usually a one
ht 'ii- I adobe structure, with a bar at
one end, a raised platform at the other
for niit ieians, and an intervening ex
jiaiiM of hard earthern floor, beaten
Hinouth by the feet of the bravosand
heiioritas of tie- Kio Grande.
To these fandangoes the o Ulcers,
teamsters and soldiers were all in
vited, or rather they went without in
vitation and were welcome, and the
dark-eyed seiioritas, accompanied by
their mothers, attended, and dancing
went on without the formality of an
introduction, a collection being taken
uji by sending around the hat to pay
the musicians, one of whom scraped a
fiddle and the other picked a guitar.
The owner of tho fomla was compen
aated by the drinks which were or
dered by the men for themselves and
partners after each dance.
When we reached Albuquerque, a
fandango no great in its dimensions
and in the number who attended it as
to dwarf all others, was held at the
fonda kept by a man named Murphy.
At this point our escort was changed,
the company of cavalry that had ac
companied us down the river from
Fort ti irland laing sent back and a
troop t.i the Fifth Cavalry coming
down from Fort 1 nion to guard us
a (must the \ pitches from tho liio
(Irande to the Colorado. i'liis troop
had been stationed at Albuquerque a
short time betore, and so the otlicers
and men were well acquainted with the
inhabitants. At the fandango this
night i was particularly struck by the
appearance of a d ark-eyed pretty girl,
with a complexion that looked like
polished ivory, and which might have
indicated ill health but for the redness
lit her lips. Her name, as I soon
learned, was Nina Seyana, and she was
regarded as the b. lie of Albuquerque.
A handsome young sergeant connected
with our new escort was evidently the
favorite of this charming girl. They
had often met before, and 1 was in
form' i by a Herman who ran a bar
ber ?diop and a bar in concert, that
the sergeant would have married Nina
Seyana when stationed there before,
but for hi- fear of u noted local des
perado, known a> Miguel Larado.
After this information I did not
Deed to be told who Miguel Larado
was. I saw a short stout man of tliirtv,
with black hair, a short, black mous
tache, sinister eyes, very white teeth,
a red sash about his waist, and wear
ing a velvet tunic, all of which indi
cated to me that he was a verv bad
man and that lie thought himself no
end of a dandy.
It was also evident that the young
sergeant whoso selfishly persisted in
dancing with Nina Seyana when other
gallants were eager to have her for a
partner in the wait/., had already
aroiwd the j alousy and started up all
the tiger m the he art of Miguel l.ar
ado. As lam not a dancing man I
left the fomla before midnight and
w nt to my tent, which was pitched on
the brink of a river near by, I wa»
about to go to bed when 1 was startled
by hearing a woman's shrill scream,
followed by the shouting of men and
the quick crack of ti volvers.
hi 1 o 1 was wondering as to the
cause of this commotion, my servant
ran in, and in an . \citedvoice, asked:
"\N here is Doctor Parry?"
Doctor Parry was my lent mate,and
as he had not yet put in an appearance
I supposed he was yet at the fonda,
and so told the man.
In reply to my questions as to the
shooting, he said:
"Senor, Miguel Larado has stabbed
Sergeant Forbes! He wiV . . :i t u

room which I had bo recently left
orowded with gay happy dancers.
On a blanket in the middle of the floor
lav Sergeant Forbes, with the ashy
gray hue on his face that indicated
death, if he had not speedy relief.
Over him was bending the young girl,
kissin" him at times, and clasping her
hands while she cried piteously to the
men to save the life of her lover or to
wreak vengeance on his assassin, Mig
uel Larako. Doctor Parry soon put
in an appearance and succeeded in
stopping the hemorrhage the blade
of the dagger had passed through the
upper lobe of the young man's left
lung—and he was carried to a bed
room in the fonda; but the doctor was
non-committal as to the wounded
Miguel Larado had committed many
murders along the Rio Grande, but
this was th first time ho had ever
made an assault on an American, or a
"white man," as the Americans were
then called to distinguish them from
tin- native Mexicans.
Sergeant Forbes was very popular
with his troop and also with the peo
ple of Albuquerque, and his comrades
and friends were wild with anger, and
at once began a search of the town for
the assissin who, it is needless to say,
was not found.
Early the next morning ft sheep
herder came into Albuquerque with
the information that he had seen
Mi"Uel Larado on horseback ov.r on
the liio Puerc >, about eight miles west
(letting the consent of Captain Lob
biiif, Lietenant Manning and twenty
men, with as many more Mexican
horsemen, were soon riding at a fast
gallop in th- direction of tho place
where the ii-sassin was reported as
hn% ing lit > n -een.
The herder had made no mistake.
After a two h jnrs* ride, the pursuers
surprised Larado while some distance
from his horse, which was grazing
lower down on the bank of the ri\er.
The l'uerco is a broad, shallow stream,
noted f"»r its quicksands. Seeing that
h - could not reach his horse, and that
the only chance of escape was to cross
the river, the outlaw, who knew its
dangerous character, hesitated for a
moment, then, urged to desparation
by the shouts of the oncoming horse
men, he plunged over the bank. In
some way he struggled to tho middle
of the river, and his strength failed
him just us the foremost horseman dis
mounted and shouted to him to come
Hut Miguel Larado could neither go
back nor forward. As he stood there,
he sank inch by inch. The men quickly
took oil' their hitching halters, and
threw them to him, but he cast them
aside, for he knew full well that if he
once got into their hands a rescue from
the quicksands would mean death at
one of those same halters.
Lower and lower ho sank, till the
water reached his armpits. Then, by
a desperate effort, he succeeded in
reaching down and drawing a revolver
from his belt. Hissing an mtli, ho
leveled the weapon at the men on tho
bank, and tired. Fortunately, the
shot missed, and before ho could lire
a second time the quicksand had
reached his throat and the water was
dashing over his head.
Within five minutes of the time the
troopers under Lieutenant Manning
reached the bank of the l'uerco, Mig
uel Larado had vanished forever in
the quicksands that were no more
cruel than himself.
Ihe next day we began our march
westward, and when we reached Fort
Whipple, some two months afterward, |
we were delighted to learn that Ser
geant Forbes had not only recovered
but had wedded the idol of his heart,
the beautiful Nina Seyana.

A raw egg is an excellent tonic. If

really a delicious drink: Put tho yolk
of an egg into a dish with a teaspoon
lul ot white sugar and a teaspoonful

lightly together with a fork. Put the
whites on a plate, and add a pinch of
silt; then, with a broad-bladed knife,
beat it to a stiff froth. Now, as light
ly as possible mix all together in the
dish; then as lightly transfer it to a

Limits of Electricity.
The principal hindrance to the de
velopment of electrical engineering,
says Alexander Siemens, must be look
ed for in the exaggerated expectations
that were raised, either by ignorauce
or by design, when the general publio
first seriously thought of regarding
electricity as a commodity for every j
day use. In its first stage the devel
opment of tho electrical industry was
closely connected with telegraphy;
the second step might be said to have
been taken when electric lighting was
introduced; and now it seems that
transmission of power is to be tho
problem which electrical engineers
will have to grapple with in the near
The success of electric tram linek
has undoubtedly contributed to direct
general attention to the transmission
of power bv electricity, but great
care will have to be exercised so as not
to start in a direction that can lead to
no practical results. Many schemes
have been started to introduce electri
city, as the motive power on the main
lines of railway, and to accelerate at
the same time the speed of the trains,
even up to 200 miles an hour. It
would be rash to say that such a speed
would not be attained some day, but
none of these schemes can bo carried
out on a commercial basis with tho
means at present at disposal.—Power.
A Southern Terrapin Farm.
"Upon tho coast of the Gulf of Mex
ico, about ten miles south of Mobile,
is situated Dorlane's terrapin farm. It
is one of two in the United States, tho
other being located on tho coast of
Maryland, and belongs to Senator
Stewart. I was once the guest of
Dorlane,"said L. E. Dougherty,at the*
Emery, " and was much interested in
watching the development upon that
place. I found that the terrapins,
which are usually advertised tor sale
in the rosturants at from 23 cents to sl,
sold at from SI to 80 a dozen.
"Perhaps lO,OOCI terrapin are turned
into the Dorlanes terrapin farm at one
time. They will average all tho way
from one month to twelve months; all
terrapin over that are not received at
all, because they can be sold direct at
more than would pay to raise them in
the farm. Tho farm is not unlike a
rico farm; it is composed of strips of
narrow land and of narrow water, and
the terrapin are fed three times a day,
being called by a peculiar chuckle,
upon which they come and receive
their food. When arrived at the ago
of one year they sell readily in New
York for 84.50 per dozen. There are
perhaps ton thousand of them on tho
Dorlanes farm below that age. They
are marketed when they are ono year
Cows Milked While Vou Wait.
To take a cow from door to door and
milk her in presence of each customer,
is the very newest departure in tho
London milk business. It is one that
is not lacking iii boldness and origin
ality, and it deserves more success
than it is likely, we fear, to meet with.
The practice is common enough in
Egypt, where householders appreciate
tho advantage of being able to judge
for themselves whether the animal
from which they draw their supply
looks healthy or the reverse.
But then the average Egyptian is
not the slave of tho British urban su
perstition which demands that milk
should look thick and yellow in order
to be genuine. It is all in vain to as
sure most people in English towns
that pure milk is not of a rich yellow
hue, and that as a matter of fact it
ought to be white. They know better
than the cow and the milkmaid com
bined, and as they demand yellowness
they are supplied with it to their
hearts' content. All that has to be
done, and is done, is to mix various
coloring matters with the fluid, and
these pigments usually are inocuous,
though not always so. —London Tele
A Sign of Mental Activity.
"Talking to one's self is generally
considered a sign of a weak brain,"
said a doctor yesterday, "bat nothing
could be a greater mistake. It is a
sign of an extremely active brain. It
may be a strong or a weak intellect,
but the activity must be there to cause
this peculiarity. If you will observe
you will be astonished how many peo
ple you will meet on the street who are
thinking aloud. The talking is done
unconsciously. Often the people ad
dicted to the habit, if you called their
attention to it, would aver that they
never were guilty of such a thing.
Some of the brightest men I have ever
. do their thinking outloud without
I knowing it, and on the other hand,
some of the weakest individuals, men
t tallv, whom l have met in my practice
keep up a continuous conversation
with themselves. So it seems that a
man who talks to himself must be one
of two extremes,a wise man or a fool."

TO DEVELOP THE SOUTH.
Southern States Exchange Establish
Headquarters in New York.
Temporary quarters have been en
gaged at No. 23 Park Row, New York
city, for the "Southern States Ex
change Association," which is the
name of the organization formed by
the committee appointed by the re
cent Fifth Avenue hotel conference.
The officers of the association are
Hugh R. Garden, president; Stuy
vesant Fish, vice president; R. Wayne
Wilson, secretary and general man
ager, and John H. Inman, treasurer.
The committee for each state has
been instructed to at once organize
his forces, and, through his state
press, invite associate membership and
inform the people of the service the
association is now prepared to render.
Some interesting facts and figures
have been furnished by Richard H.
Edmonds, of the Manufacturers' Rec
ord. He says that it has been demon
strated to the world that in iron, cot
ton and lumber manufacture it is no
longer a question as to whether the
south can compete with other sections,
but it is a question as to whether other
sections can hold their own against the
south. Southern cotton mills practi
cally monopolize the coarse goods
trades and are rapidly pushing into
the production of finer goods. Ala
bama is making iron at less than SO.OO
a ton, and able experts have recently
reported that the Carolinas can pro
duce tho best grades of Bessemer iron
for steel making at less than $3 a ton.
In 1880 the south had total farm as
sets of $2,314,000,000; by 1890 they
had increased to $3,181,000,000, an in
crease of 37 per cent., while during
the same period tho increase in all
other states and territories was only 30
per cent. This, it should bo remem
bered, was accomplished by tho south
without immigration, while tho west
had tho benefit of nearly 5,000,000
foreigners who settled there within
Ten years ago the south's agricul
tural and manufacturing and mining
products aggregated in value about
$1,000,000,000; now they are nearly
52,000,000,000, and are annually in
creasing. The increase in population
during that period was only 15 to 20
per cent, as tho south has no heavy
immigration to swell its growth.
So, practically the same people who
ten years ago were producing $1,200,-
000.000 a year are now, by reason of
being more fully employed, able to
turn out nearly $8,000,000 a year more
than they were then doing. They h >ve
! moro than doubled their railroad mile
age and trebled and quadrupled tho
traffic; they have more than quadrupled
their cotton bill, added $2,000,000,-
000 to the assessed value of their prop
erty and $3,900,000,000 to its true
value, and more than doubled their
banking capital. Such is the record
of tho "last ten years, worked out in
spite of almost overwhelming obstacles.

for military service. No other civil
ized country in the world could place
such a gigantic host of men in the
field in an emergency.
Of course, the actual number of or
ganized, drilled and uniformed citizen
soldiers is only a small fraction of this,
but the real available military strength
of the United States is only inade
quately appreciated by the averago I
American. The military spirit which
the civil war engendered has not died
out among the American youth. On
the contrary, it has amply held its
own, if it has not increased. Never
before was the national guard of the
several states so strong in numbers, so
well armed, so excellently disciplined.
There are 112,190 of these volun
teers in all, representing infantry,
cavalry and artillery. Their efficiency
widely varies, being high as a rule iu
the old, rich and populous states, and
less satisfactory in the newer and
sparsely settled communities.
New York heads the list in numbers
with a well equipped force of 12,810
officers and men—as large jib a, fighting
army corps of the rebellion. Penn
sylvania has a force of 8,014, whose
mettle was tried two years ago tit
Homestead; Ohio has 0,125, and Mas
sachusetts 5,GG6. As it liajipens, the
states in which the recent strike cen
tered are well prepared for such an
emergency. Illinois' militia body
musters 4,777 men ; Indiana's, 2,033;
lowa's, 2,351; Missouri's, 2,415, and
Michigan's, 2,801. Illinois is particu
larly fortunate in the character of its
fine city regiments.
The entire organized militia of the
United States is subject to the orders
of the president, and can be moved
and concentrated wherever occasion
for its presence arises. When to this
great army of 100,000 men are added
the 25,000 regular and 2,000 or 3,000
blue jackets and marines of »the war
ships on the homo station, it is obvi
ous that there is something more than
the policeman's club between the
American people and anarchy.— J ion ton

A NO-TO-BAC MIRACLE.

Lake Geneva, Wis., July 21—Special.—
Tho ladies of oar beautiful littlo town are
making an interesting and exciting timo for
tobacco-using husbands, sinoo the injurious
effects of tobacco and tho easo with which
it can be cured by a preparation called No-
To-Bac, have beon so plainly demonstrated !
by the cure of Mr. F C. Waite. In a written '
statement he says : "I smoked an l ehewe 1 i
tobacco for twenty-threo years, and I am
6ure that my case was one of the worst in
this part of the country. Even after I went S
to bod at night, if I woke up I would want !
to chew or smoke. It was not only killing
me but my wife was also ailing from the in
jurious effects. Two boxes of No-To-Bac
cured me, and 1 have no more desire for to
bacco than I have to jump out of the win
dow. I have gained twenty pounds in thirty
days, my wife is well, and wo are indeed
both happy to say that No-To-Bac is truly
'worth Its weight in gold' to us."
The cure and improvement In Mr. Waite'a
case i 3 looked upon as a miracle—in fact, it
Is the talk of the town afld county, and it is
estimated that over a thousand tobacco
users will bo using No-To-Bac within a f-w
weeks. The peculiarity about No-To-Bae as
a patent medicine is that the makers, tho
Stirling Remedy Comp-iny, No. 45 Randolph
street, Chicago, absolutely guarantee the
use of three boxes to cure or refund tho
money, and the cost, $2.50, is so trifling as
compared with the expensive and unneces
sary use of tobacco tbat tobacco-using hus
bands have no good excuse to offer when
their wives insist upon taking No-To-Bao
and getting results in the way of pure, sweet
breath, wonderful improvement in their
mental and physical condition, with a prac
tical revitalization of their nicotizoi nerves.

If people would pay more attention to
properly regulating the action of their bow
els, they would have less frequent occasion
to call for their doctor's services to subdue
attacks of dangerous diseases.
That, of all known agents to accomplish I
