Dick IluyVs history will never be writ ten by me nor by any one else who knew him to adorn n Sunday school li brary. lie was not that kind of boy. Dick was an Apache Indian, with all the characteristics of total depravity that the word Apache conveys or sug gests. We were children together, Dick and I. We lived, fought and play ed together for two years in the same army post. On one memorable occa sion Dick, instigated by the devil—for I firmly believe in the devil, if only for Apaches—dropped down the neck of my frock coat a live toad. It was the cause of my first fit of hysterics, and 1 determined if 1 ever grew old enough 1 would tell the whole world bow bad a young Apache could be. In 1872 , if I remember rightly. Gen eral Crook had succeeded, after years of bloody war and the loss of hundreds of good men, in subduing most of the bands composing the Apache nation of New Mexico and Arizona. They had dwelt in (lie strongholds of mountain and desert, from which they frequent ly emerged to rob and murder all min ers or emigrants that they could am bush. leaving nothing for the human mind to conceive of in the way of cru elty whenever a white man fell into their power. At the reservation, although they were well fed and quite decently treat ed, it was necessary to watch them constantly, and large bodies of troops were detailed for that purpose. Never theless. scarcely a week passed but a small squad of Apaches, usually led by some attractive squaw, would slip quietly past the guards and escape through tlie darkness into their beloved STRONG WHEN IN DOUBT, TRY AGAIN!

Roll call nearly every morning devel oped these absentees, and next day would come news of murder, rapine and horrors generally. A favorite Apache mode of disposing of the un suspecting freighter, miner or emi grant whose camp they had succeeded in raiding was to tie the victim by the four limbs to stakes and then to build a fire on that portion of his body desig nated In the old fashioned almanacs as “vlrgo.” There seemed to be something par ticularly fascinating to the Apache temperament in this form of torture. Death beiug long in coming, it gave the squaws and papooses plenty of chance to invent small torments on the side, as it were. The women and children emigrants— But enough. Suf fice It to say that the absolute hatred entertained by these Indians for the whites was fully reciprocated, especial ly by the soldiers. It was no easy matter to track aud successfully fol low the runaways through the cactus and mesquite thickets, over the barren deserts and desolate mountains that make up the topography of Arizona. But in that parched country water is only to be found at certain springs and water holes, between which days of travel often intervene, but which are equally well known to soldiers and to Indians. So when the morning report showed to General Crook that so many war riors, squaws and papooses were missing the grim old warrior would make no sign of pursuit, but on the night following or perhaps the next one a squadron of mounted men would file silentlj- out of the reservation bear ing orders to move as rapidly as pos sible to the water hole of Palo Pinto or to Agna Grande spring or to some other place where the presence of the precious fluid favored a camping place for the renegades. The troops were always positively instructed to bring back no prisoners, all matters of de tail being left to the officers in com mand. One June morning there were- reported missing 8 Indians and 11 squaws and papooses, including Wall- nemo, than whom a more depraved and cruel Indian never existed, even in Ari zona. Two nights afterward a squad of the Twenty-third infantry, Crook’s own regiment, under Lieutenant Huyl, a splendid young fellow, who has since left the service, was sent out ou a scout with the usual orders. No trace of the renegades was found, but a burned ranch and stage station and a cremated cowboy gave sufficient evi dence of Indians at large. The next night, or rather just at dawn, after a long and fatiguing march, the scouts reached a natural rock basin at the foot of one of the steepest and most inaccessible knobs to be found in des olate Arizona. This basin had often collected a supply of acrid water, which, however, was drinkable enough 111 that country. A thin vapor of smoke from a nearly spent fire convinced the troopers that their night’s march had not been in vain, aud on creeping up as close as.possible tlie bostiles were outlined against the rocks fast asleep. The little squadron silently deployed out so as to avoid missing a single shot nnd at the word of command fired, kill ing nearly every one of the Indians. The others jumped up, only to be cut down by the reserve fire. The only two unhurt were Wnlmemo and his 4 -year- old papoose. Grasping the child, he sprang for the mountain side, scaling the rocks like a chamois amid a show er of bullets, soon distancing his pur suers aud getting out of range of their rifles. Halting on a shelf of rock, he set the child down and proceeded to in dulge in every exhibition of contempt and derision that his imagination could invent to aggravate the discomfited troopers, who gnashed their several sets of teeth in rage at the insults of the old heathen. They were relieved at last by the arrival of Lieutenant Iluyl. who bore iu bis hand a new tar- Sm ile and Seller. b That’s the motto of many a woman’s life.

This wonderful gun was guaranteed to carry—I forget—1,100 yards with ac curacy, and the lieutenant, who was one of the best fellows in the world in garrison, but quite cold hearted and bloodthirsty where Apaches were con cerned, announced that while he was doubtful of bis gun carrying near the Indian, yet he was going to try. The Apache, feeling secure against their carbines, continued his taunts until Huyl, taking deliberate aim, with sights raised for 1,500 yards, fired. Ills aim xvas true and the gun all that it was boasted. The old savage plunged face forward over the ledge and crash ed down tlie rocky mountain side at the very feet of his slayer. The attention of the soldiers was now directed to the papoose, the sub ject of this sketch. That interesting Infant still calmly occupied tlie ledge and was evidently turning tlie situa tion over in his mind. The troopers, with Lieutenant Iluyl at their head, slowly and painfully clambered up the rocks and finally approached the or phan, wlio, instead of squalling as a civilized Christian child would have done, commenced throwing stones at his pursuers, hitting Lieutenant Iluyl squarely ou the nose with a half pound rock and drawing blood copiously. lie followed this success by other good throws, causing as nearly a panic as possible. At last, by flanking him, our Apache was knocked down by a blow from a saber and stunned. His capture was now easy, but the lieutenant’s orders were to return no prisoners. “What shall we do with the little dev il?” asked one of the men. “Shoot him or throw him over the cliff after his fa ther?\ Tlie “little devil” had regained consciousness by this time and deliber ately set Ills teeth into the calf of the soldier’s leg. Lieutenant Iluyl wiped his bloody nose and replied: “ A baby who fights this way ought not to be killed in cold blood. By George, I’ll take him back to San Carlos if it costs me my commission!” A gag was put into the young one’s mouth to prevent any more biting, aud, with a soldier holding each hand, he was landed on the plain below. There he was placed on horseback, a lariat tied to one foot, passed under the horse and tied to the other, and thus the troopers returned to the reservation. Lieutenant Huyl was a great favorite with General Crook, but he had dis obeyed orders and confidently expected to be put under arrest. But the general had already heard something of the stone throwing affair and had enjoyed a hearty laugh over Huyl’s broken nose. When the lieutenant in making his report reached the point where Wahnemo was killed, the general in terrupted him with, “ B y the way, I think you had better not let me knoxv officially any more of this scout than you have already told.” Then glancing at the swollen nose he burst into a roar of laughter, in which all the other offi cers joined. The young Indian was confined in the armory until his first fright was overcome. The soldiers of Company A named him Dick Huyl and, fitting him out with a uniform fashioned from the lieutenant’s old clothes, regularly adopted him into the service. In less than a month the small re cruit learned to express himself tolera bly In English and in a very short time had accumulated all the accomplish ments of tobacco chewing and profani ty possessed by the soldiers. He also picked up a wonderful knowledge of bugle calls and evolutions, always turn ing out at roll calls and taking his place at the extreme left of the compa ny when in line. When I first knew him, he had been under the refining influences of the United States service two years. If that Indian had Improved in that time, I am very glad I did not know him be fore. He was not beautiful according to classic standards. The Apaches flatten the heads of their babies between boards, and this, as much as anything else, served to render Dick unattractive to us chil dren. Then he had such a predilection for carrying snakes in his pocket! The soldiers spoiled him, of course, and up held him in every villainy he chose to perpetrate. When he shot the mules in an ambulance tilled with women and children, causing a runaway and a smash up, one soldier thrashed him with a barrel stave and a dozen more gave him 5 cent pieces to comfort him. They alternately pounded and petted, but it was all one to him. He seldom laughed and never cried. He was an Apache. I said he never cried. I will note an exception. Every Saturday afternoon the men took him out behind the quar ters and gave him a bath. This process was very simple. They stripped off his clothing nnd turned the hose on him. On these occasions the shrieks of the little savage could be heard all over the post. I have not seen Dick since I was 9 years old, but I like to think that he grew up and regularly enlisted in the oJd regiment and is now an honor to the service.—New York Tribune. Cocal. A e w Rural Delivery Routes. A R C H I T E C T The postoffice authorities have been busy o f late in mapping out the new routes which will be started on July ist, and re-arranging the old ones in accord ance. Besides those routes heretofore referred to in the E x p r e s s , it is practi cally certain that there will be one from Middlesex, two from Rushville, besides one from Naples, which will tap Yates county territory. The postoffices which will probably go out of business on ac count of these changes will be Benton Center, Yatesville, Friend, Cinconia, Ste- ver, Kern, and Cyrystal Springs, and pos sibly others. The three new routes iu which the boundaries have so fat been fixed are as follows: the World’s Finest Library Building Recommends Peruna for Catarrh.

The Census Bureau states that the cen ter of population in the United States, exclusive of Alaska and the recently ac quired territories, is now six miles south east of Columbus, Bartholomew County, in the southern poition of Indiana. Col umbus is forty miles south and is s ightly to the east of Iuniauapolis. This center has moved slowly west almost exactly on the line of 39 degrees north latitude for nearly an hundred years. O nce I was young, but now I am old, and I have never seen a girl who went back on her mother, who ever came to be worth a one-eyed button to her husband. It is the law of God. It is not exactly in the Bible, but it is written large and law ful on the lives of many misfit homes. If one of you chaps ever run across a girl with her face full of roses, who says to you when you come to the door : “ I can not go for thirty minutes, for the dishes are not washed,” you wait for that girl. Sit right down on the door-step and wait for her, because some other fellow will come along and carry her off, and then you lose an angel. Wait for her and stick to her like a burr on a mule’s tail.— Bill Arp . Hon. I. 8. Smithmeyer, architect of the new Congressional Library of Wash ington, D. C., ranks first in his profes sion In this country. This library is considered the finest building in the United States. Mr. Smithmeyer spent sixteen years traveling in Europe work ing on the plans, and Congress appro priated six million dollars for this building. In a letter written from Washington and dated J u ly 4 th, 1899 , to The Peruna Medicine Co.,Columbus, O., Mr.Smith- meyer says the following in regard to Peruna, the world-renowned catarrh cure: W a s h i n g t o n , D. C., J u ly 4 , 1899 . The Peruna Medicine Co., Columbus, O.: Gentlemen—I endorse the good opin ion expressed by Senators and Repre sentatives in Congress regarding the curative qualities of your compound. Those who have used it recommend it as an excellent tonic which is particularly effective as a cure for catarrh. Respectfully, I. S. Smithmeyer. One of the most wonderful events In the history of medicine is the multitude of remarkable endorsements which Pe runa is receiving as a catarrh cure from men and women of national importance. During the past two years a large num ber of people well known from ocean to ocean, have In glowing words of un stinted praise made Peruna the most famous and justly celebrated catarrh remedy In the world. Men high in our national councils, statesmen known the world over, dis tinguished officers in the army and navy, physicians, lawyers, preach ers, and last but not least, an in numerable company of people in the common walks of life, have all joined to place Peruna on the highest pedestal of honor that any remedy has ever reached in the history of medicine. There can be no further question that Peruna is the catarrh remedy of the age . It has no rival . There are no substitutes . Peruna stands alone as a systemic catarrh cure which will cure catarrh in a ll phases and stages. Everybody should have a copy of Dr. Hartman’s latest book on catarrh.

Every day, as long as the siege .continued, lie crossed that hospital ridge and passed over the most expos ed streets on his way to the church, always carrying with him his pocket communion service, apparently stand ing an even chance of burying the dead, comforting the dying or being blmself brought home maimed or cold In death. Ills leaving was a daily anguish to those who watched him vanish over the brow of the hill. One evening, coining back iu the dusk, he saw a burly wagoner slip off his horse and get under It ln*a hurry. His head appeared, bobbing out first from one side, then from the other. Above him in the air, bobbing, too, and with a quick, uneasy motion, was a luminous spark. After a full minute spent in vigorous dodging the man came out to prospect. The supposed fuse was still there, burning brilliantly. “Darn the thing,” he grunted, “why don’t It bust?” lie had been playing hide and seek for («0 seconds with a line speci men of our southern lightning bug, or firefly!
