('OnMlllilHERTISER WEDNESDAY. JULY-24. 1S95. SOFT BLACK EYES. What a trivial thine: will color the whole of a man's life! How small an in- uulent compared to the large future he has mapped for himself, may make or mar it! I learned all this and more one sultry May day in Mexico five years ago. I had been sent to Mexico as chief of a surveying corps to establish the bound- aries of the Santa Anita grant, which lay along the Rio Claro jnst outside the city of Chihuahua. It was a responsi- ble position for a young man, and I held my head high. It was the day of La Fiesta de Ran Guadalupe. The saint himself had been dead, I understood several hundred years, but in Mexico that doesn't make any difference; the longer they are dead the more they are thought of and the bigger a birthday party they have. Al- most every other week contains the feast day of MOIIIH saint or saintess and , trade and commerce are suspended to do the occasion justice. The natives of Mexico are the most perennially pious people on earth. Why, I have known them—men in my own employ—to be so enthused over the post- • humous birthday of some long dead saint that they would get up in the gray dawn to go about celebrating it. This ' morning—the morning of Guadalupe's feast day—the whole force of peons un- der me had struck. No chainman, uo flagman, no axeman was left me. Only Sims and Bailey, my two American as- sistants, stayed behind. When I began abusing them for the customs of Mexico, they said while they did not care remote- ly for the saint to whom it was dedi- cated, still they were glad it was a holi- day, and they thought they would go up stream and fish awhile. They were on- ly indifferent laymen, without any re- ligious feeling. When 1 was left alone in camp I spent a short time on my held notes, when it Came over me that 1 was wasting the du>. .lust outside the chaparral the , ijver was lau^hius< and murmuring in the open. It seemed to ask me to walk beside it. The adobe hilts along its banks were tenaiitless; their inmates had gone to the teast. But. strange sight, thereat the bend of the riser where the waters were the merriest, was a solitary worker, and whatever she was doing she was doing with-a vnn. A dark-eyed, dark-haired daughter of Spain she seemed to be, and yet she was working—and working hard .- -on a feast day! A tit of curiosity seized me to know what she was doing, and why she was doing it. 1 approached her with the question on m_\ lips: at what did she work, and por-kay I I spell it as I said it;. Softh she raised a pair of melting „ orbs, and sweetly and eloquently she answered me. From her reply, in the most musical language in the world. 1 gathered that she would tie at the feast, but that she must cleanse the soiled linen that lay around her on the sand, for the owner of it. a gentleman who was staying at the 1 iute.1 states Hotel, wanted lr by noon, and to-morrow would not do (she said this plaintively i. If it were not done by noon, she finished most p ithetically, s:ie would get no dmero. anil that she Heeded m the superlative degree. D.nero! Ah. the next most potent thing i.i Mexico to saints' Jay is mones. As her red lips told me this, her great black eyes waudeit-d from the soiled clothes at her teet to the spires of the . atheilral m the distance and the wav- ing foliage of the pl.iz.i where the feast- ing and merr\ making \V*H going on. .There was a look of sadness and longing m them as she ga/.ed. Being a tender lieurtfl man. 1 askud her it' there was aught 1 loiild ilo tor her. In a vvoiider- lul mixttue of Anglo Spanish, which L wivented while m Meuco, and which no one could e\er master but myself, I as- sured her 1 was at her servue it' she so desired, and asked how 1 could assist her. The black eyes flashed gratitude ere the scarlet month -aid m -IKHI 1 sweet tones: 'Would 1 sit on a rock beside her and rub the shirts of the gtntle- mau on a large rock with a very small rock.'\ • Looking back now in the light of ma- turer wi-ilmn. 1 can see that 1 should have declined that job on the ground that it was too tuuesthetic. But —I didn't. On the contrary. 1 accepted it jtfusively. There was a touch of ro- 'ian< e about it that appealed to me- ttle day itself appealed to me for the h si time, 1 began to feel something of the enthusiasm for feast days that had t.oken my men out before daybreak. 1 would not be so hard on them again, I thought. Truly it was a very pretty custom, and 1 began to .sympathize with it and to un- derstand it better. If San Guadalupe had not been so long interred, in the g'adness of my heart 1 would have .sent him a bouquet. All this 1 tried to con- tine to Lucia. It touched her; it sound- «•'. she said, like stories she had read in t he convent. Her name was a poem in itself: Lucia Palilalia (iarcia y Valdez. And mine? After that poem it seemed common to say that I was plain \Jack Biggs.\ But she anticipated me; she pointed to one of my business cards that had escaped my vest pocket when I threw it on the sand. \Meester Beegs, que no?\ she li ped, and it did not sound at all badly fujUi her lips. It was pleasant to know she did not dislike rtiy name; this was one way of saying, as everybody knows, that its owner was not disagreeable to her. As we talked we washed, and long be- fore noon the gentleman's shirts were at'l floating m the breeze from the low chaparral along the river bank. Lucia Eul.ih.i glanced gratefully and alternately at the snowy linen and at me. My natural thoughtfulness led me to suggest that we might do the family washing while we were about it. Her brother Antonio, the sheepherder whom she had mentioned with sisterly affei tion—did not his things have need of impress them with*it, when—gracious saints! Guadalupe and great Jehosaphat! Was that Maxwell! The man I had robbed of the valedictory in '87 at Ann Arbor? True, I had no grudge against him on that account, but my dream of meeting him again and \making it right'' had not been like this! Maxwell it was, with his stylish bride. He threw me a careless glance at first; then I be- gan to dawn on him, slowly but surely. He quizzed Lucia in miserable Spanish, in a cowardly way, 1 thonght. \Quien es?\ he said, indicating me. Smilingly, as if pleased so to honor me, Lucia presented me to Maxwell and his wife as \Miamigo Senor Beegs.\ I could feel that the blueing, and the soap root, and the river water were all min- gling in one grand river of perspiration toward the collar of my negligee shirt. I could feel that all the constellations in the heavens and all the mundane land- scape around me were waltzing giddily together. > ; ^NSUMPTION.

I would say vehemently: \This is-not-me-reglar business-I'm-a- civil-engineer-at-$25u-a-month-rm-only- doing-this-for-4un,\ etc. But while I was thinking this—how often are our best intentions thwarted thus!—Maxwell coughed. It was not a consumptive cough. It was just a little grating sound that contained more painful surprise, and pity, anil regret than a volume of Browning could. That froze me as I stood—or sat. Fixedly I gazed at the Sierra Madres over his head, as if try- ing to fathom the \lost\ mines hidden there. Maxwell's watch ticked in the painful silence. \Alice he said, sternly, \we must not miss that train.\ , Out of my life they went, with the clothes I had washed for them, as sud- denly as they came in, I strained my ears to hear him say. \Poor fellow!

A NEGRO'S FIDELITY. He en Tii, Still Watchen Over Hia Old Master's Grave, WKlt!u|£ t o Join HJui. The attitude of the Southern slaves during the civil war was extraordinary. Thousands of white women and chil- dren, whose fathers and husbands had joined the Confederate army, were left in charge of family servants and were dependent upoii their fidelity and serv- ice for protection and daily bread. Rarely indeed did one of these negroes betray his trust. Hundreds of body servants accompanied their masters to the army, nursed them when sick or wounded and \toted\ them home to recover health or to he buried. A pa- thetic illustration of a body servant's fidelity was seen by Mr. W. L. Williams, a traveling salesman. I saw a pathetic instance at Greens- boro of a negro's tideliu, said Mr. Wil- . liams. About ten miles from the town I saw a grave with a marble slab at its head. Seated near it was an old negro with a hunch of flowers, which he was placing upon the mound. I stopped my horse and spoke to him. \Whose jjrave is that, uncle?\ I asked. \Marse Tom's, boss. I'm his nigga.\ \<)h. no, yon are no man's nigger now. Di'lu't you ever know thut you Were free?\ \Duniio nuffin' 'bout dat. sir. I'se Marse Tom's nigga. sail, an' he's waitin' , foh me suah up dar. Dese nan's done tote him frmn dat place (ley call Hhiloh, an' he died while I wah totin 'im; jest closed his eyes an' went to sleep, an' • when I comes to cross the ribber ob Jordan he jes' hoi' out his ban's an' he tells de angel at de gate who I be. an' he lets me in. I dreamed 'bout it las' night, boss.\ I was interested in the old fellow and wanted to hear his story. The slab at the grave told me that it was that of \Col. Tom Winn, killed at the battle of Shiloh.\ ami I (questioned the faithful negro further: \How old are yon. uncle?\ \'Mos' a hundred. I reckon, sah.\ \Were you in the war?\ \Went wif Marse Tom. sah. I'se his nigga, an' he's in heaben. I'se jest awaitin' til dene old Ixmes. weary wid trabellin' olierde road, '11 take me to de ribber. when Marse Toin'll help his ole nigga ober.\ \Were you with him when he was killed?\ \1 was right dar, lioss.

Dis heah niggah lef to ten' his body. Dey buried im when I got 'im heah, an' dis nigga jes' lef to ten' his grave an' keep de flowers heah.\ I found upon inquiry that the story was true. For a quarter of a century the faithful negro had done nothing but attend the grave of his young master, whose body he brought from northern Mississippi to central Georgia. —Cin- cinnati Inquirer. Koncert\ sign and he was arrested land locked up. There was a merry-go-round in work- ing order yesterday. It was patronized pretty liberally, but each timorous nudi- vidual seemed satisfied with one trip. The blasts from the ocean, coining at the rate of about thirty miles an hour, ren- dered it no easy job for the riders to kwep their hats on. Police Captain Clayton sat in his office all day ready to do his duty by the public in keeping the peace, but his active in- tervention was not required. The ar- rest above recorded was the only one of the day. his directions are exactly carried out, but we must give careful attention to nursing. To prevent the first paroxysm of cough- ing, which is usually incited in the morning by the exertion of rising, a warm cup of tea or an eggnog should be I taken before the patient leaves the bed. A glass of something warm, like hot milk or grnel, should also be taken be- fore retiring, and plenty of time should be allowed in preparing for the bed. The patient should sleep in blnnkets, and a glass of warm drink should be placed within reach in case he should wake through the night. If the presence of food in the stomach causes the reappearance of the cough after meals, sume suitable preparation of pepsin should be used to husteu the digestion, and an hour or two's rest should he taken immediately after the meal.—Youlh's Companion. AN AVENUE OF IDOLS. GEN. GRANT'S SUCCESS. The There was no time like the I said: \it might set in to- il id rain for months—who V\ present, morrow knows?\ Lucia Eulalia looked at the contra- dicting blue of the skies, and laughed at my weather pr^opnV;ies, but she ran t» her adobe dwelling a. few rods away and brought from it a bundle of An- tonio's \things.\ They had apparently been waiting for me for years. His wardrobe ranged from bandanas to dingier overalls. As I warmed up to the ambitious task of cleansing them, under Lucia Eulalia's approving smiles, all nature seemed to smile; the sun shone wann and warmer; the river ran blue and bluer—for Lucia had \blued\ it. She had also \allowed\ the root of a whole soap tree to Antonio's garmeuts. SShe was right in doing this, but, some- how, in my struggle with the sheep- herdiug stains of six months, I had dis- tributed a good deal of lather over my person. When this unaccustomed fa- tigue began to show on me, Lucia Eulalia asked softly if I \had- tire.\ \Oh no:\ I was declaring, \I have no tire,\ when some approaching American voices wore heard. Lucia clapped her hands tragically, and. running to the chaparral, began hastily to gather the lrtieu therefrom. I caught from her manner that the owner of the shirts had tired of waiting and was coming for them. I had divined aright, but I had not divined far enough. As they emerged from the alameda to the west of the ver, I could see they were a lady and gentleman. 1 had almost managed a look of industry and Innocence, as they approached us, and raised my eyes to AN IMPRISONED BIRD. How a Little Humming Bird Wa« Held In the fetal of a Flowier All Night. Nature is a very loving and careful mother, and it is seldom, within a civil- ized community, that any accident be- falls her little ones for which her higher creation, man. is not directly responsi- ble. In view of this fact, the following little incident seemB interesting: A lady of New Orleans relates that some days since the first humming bird of the season made its appearance in her garden, sipping indiscriminately from the wealth of sweetc. Late in the afternoon she observed the little fellow hovering around a spike of Annuncia- tion lillies, which had shot up perfectly laden with bells. The next morning early when she went out for a matitu- dinal stroll through the garden she heard a fluttering and faint cheeping from the neighborhood of the lily bed. For some time she could Ree nothing to account for the faint sounds, but at last was astonished to discover that one of the lily beds had closed its-petals, im- prisoning the humming bird within. It is probable thai the bird had buried its beak too far in and extracted so much honey as to cause the already fading flower to collapse suddenly, thus hold- ing him close bound all night long. —Philadelphia Times. TO REDUCE BICYCLE RECORDS. An Electric Pace Maker, with Ttare* Hone Power, to Shatter Wtwlmea. Charles R. Culver, a well known bicy- cle trainer, of Springfield, Mass., has in- vented and patented an electric carriage for pacing wheelmen, which is expected to bring the record for a mile down to a minute. It has three wheels, is eleven feet long over all, pointed at the front end, and from four to five feet high. To avoid air resistance as far as possible „_. the contrivance is shaped like half of a f\ morning? Indomitable Eautgj of the Pilgrim* Crystallised in the Hero. In a retrospective glance at the re- markable and comparatively brief oafeer of Grant, the basis of his surpassing success may be found in the sturdy quality of his Puritan ancestors, their lofty moral principles and unflinching, aggressive resoluteness of action evem in the humblest issnes of colonial life. It waffrom such stock that came the in- domitable energy in surmounting all ' obstacles that this great leader showed ' from the first moment he was given op- portunity. \I propose to move on your works immediately,\ was his terse an- swer to the temporizing Buckner. The ' fall of Fort Donelson and the first hope that dawned upon the Federal airaas verified the confidence of the almost untried general and marked the path that his unerring genius had already outlined. His own personal record in the dark days of the sad ending of hiA life in physical anguish and material privation • was in touch with the lofty and flawless- \ 'v honorable dictum of his memorable [ laugural. In the supreme moment of a financial disaster in which he was the , innocent victim of a designing associate, ' he gave his all to keep his bond, and went forth in the winter of his life pen- : niless, but with an unsullied name. , Then came the never-to-be-forgoitten closing battle with the grim destroyer, in which the great hero, while van- quished at last, yet triumphed in the noble contest he waged to leave his fam- ily protected from grim poverty by his later victory with the pen. Well may the great leader's comrades in the field welcome the day to commemorate the glory of a great general and a great patriot. She Went Harseir.

A Double How of Japanese Bnddhan I Which Cannot lie Counted Close to this interesting pool is the I avenue of images, representing the • Amida Buddha. The idols vary in size, \ but are similar in design. There are sev- eral hundred of them altogether, and ; they sit facing one another in two long rows. We asked the little Jap who brought us to the place how many of them there were. In an awed whisper he replied, \ Nobody knows. \ Then he told lis how impossible it was to count them. Each image was made unsightly by having numbers of little bits of paper stuck on to it and chewed bits of paper which had been spat at it. The object of this disfiguration we failed to discover, though our friend Hojo informed us they were put on by the young priests, a part of whose novitiate it was to attempt to count the Bnddhas. There is evidently something wrong with these idols, for no one has ever been able to reckon them up the same twice over, in spite of sticking a piece of paper to tick each one off. Of course two unsuperstitious Englishmen were uot tu be humbugged by native stories, so M. tmy traveling companion) and I, thinking the whole thing ridiculous, de- tided to count the mysterious images. We started on co-operative lines, each taking a side of the avenue, Our efforts, however, were fruitle-ss, for we had not numbered off more than u dozen each, before M.

He started from his home on Dane Btreet, Albany, uu the morning of April 10, 1878, and arrived in San Francisco on the after- noon of Oct. 6 of the same year, being almost exactly 17a days (five hours and three minutes over) in performing the wearisome feat. Potter was a shoe- maker, and Che trip was the result of a wager made by some friends who be- lieved that such a trip would occupy at least 200 days. The wager was $1,000, but Potter made between three nnd five times that sum advertising for different parties along the route. The wheelbar- row wus made specially for the use to which it was put and weighed but 75 pounds. The distance traveled by Pot- ter was exactly 4,085^ miles.—St Louis Republic.

In all such cases ve recommend Pineola Balsam to be used in •ounectiou with CmimJ3alm. PINEOLA COUGH 'BALSAM will be found excellent for all throat and lung inflammation and for asthma. Consumptives will invariably derive benefit from its use, as it quickly abates the cough, renders expectora- tion easy, assisting nature in restoring wasted tissues. There is a large per- centage of those who suppose their cases to be con- sumption who are only suffering from a chronic cold or deep seated cough, often aggravated by catarrh. Both remedies are pleasant to use. Price of Cream Balm, 50c. per bottle; Pineola Balsam, Sic. In quantities of $2.50 we will deliver free of express or postage on receipt of amount.
