THE FATHER OF SNAKES. A Don of Reptile* aaO. an Indian Tradition Concerning It. Every one tcho has lived on the '"Great Plains" or in the mountains during- the past- twenty-five years, will re•call the fact that at certain seasons thousands of rattlesnakes and other species of serpents may be found in the vicinity of the stone ] edges bordering- the creeks and rivers of the reg-ion referred to. It will also be remembered 'that by some peculiar instinct these ^reptiles congregate early in the fall ^around the crevices in the rocks, soon to hibernate in immense, tang-led masses under the ground. Although the little prairie-rattlesnake ft -js very vcuomo'us, can rarely be tamed, /" 'is always mean, vindictive and ready •io spring- at a real or supposed enemy, I .have yet to learn of a death from its "oite, if medical treatment \verc applietl •Dromptly. Whisky is the antidote, .although it should not be termed an .-antidote in the strictest acceptance of ihe term, for it is nature, after all, that 4*oes to work in its endeavor to eliminate the virulent poison from the sys- *iem, which she would accomplish unaided, ii the physical constitution of •ihe individual affected could always Tiitarifi tho violent shock Whisky is ;:nt;rely a powerful stimulant, keeping••lip the vitality, until nature herself '.throws off the poison. Jn February, 1S09, during Gen. Sheridan's "winter campaig-n" against the allied Indian tribes of the plains, Gen. •Ouster's command, consisting of his .own famous icgirnent, the Seventh cavalry, and a largo portion of the ".Nineteenth Kansas volunteers, was •Damped on the Wichita, in the Indian 'territory. Half starved, their horses without forage, the troops were compelled to remain there, waiting- for rations of corn and food, the arrival of ••which was daily expected and anxious- Sy looked for. While necessarily idling in their forced e'amp, the enlisted men, . true to their ever inquisitive and roam- ung nature, went on little expeditions rof discovery in every direction, within ••a. radius of a few miles of their camp. "Sometimes they made remarkable "'finds." One of the most interesting of Khese was an immense den of rattlesnakes, where thcv had hibernated in /tiinost uncountable numbers. The re•suit was that nearly every one of the •Kansas boys—the regulars did not seem to fancy them—set themselves to work •manufacturing belts out of the skins of the mottled serpents, which they wore -.around their waists or slouch hats, ""cowboy" fashion. The "den," which, of course, was discovered by a Kansas youth, who had been reared en the broad western prairies of the state, was a great crack in the indurated rock, about twelve :feet in length and a foot wide. How •deep it penetrated into the ledgo could '. not be determined accurately, as the longest pole obtainable failed to "reach 'bottom," The cliff itself, on which the ""•*dcn" was found, was situated very peculiarly; an isolated mass of disrupted .-earth and stone, immediately opposite ^Medicine bluff, the top of which comprised an area of only three hundred 'Square feet, elevated more- than one j'aiKlrccl feet above the base of the hill <->B which it stood, a sort of a mountain •»n a mountain. It was cut off from all access, except by water, and another 2a2g-e which toworo.d above it. To .-reach the den one had to climb down ;ihe almost perpendicular side of the •ledge or wall of the upper mountain, a TCry dangerous passage. The den had tevidently been" a hibernating place of :snakes for ages, if the smoothly-worn rock- over which they were obliged to travel to reach their holes was any indication, for it was polished like a mir- jror, the result of centuries of their {migrations; besides, the Kiowas have a •very ancient tradition concerning the .•spot. The number of snakes killed and cap- •£ured by the soldiers was marvelous. 'They would have filled a six-mule army -wagon without any exaggeration. They -were very large, too. many of them Measuring eight feet from head to tail, siot counting the rattles, Among the traditions of the Kiowas, -ihat of this snake den is the oldest It 3»as been handed down orally from •£heir earliest existence. "A great •jnany years ago, when the earth was ^yonng, and no white man had ever yet '.been seen by the red man of the prat- Ties, there was an old Arapahoe chief, •who was so aged that he knew he was drawing near to his end. One morning be wandered away from the camp and •the lodges of the tribe, in the hope of Ending some place where he might lie down resignedly and pass over to the -aappy hunting grounds calmly and undisturbed. He believed the top of the ,t>luff, out of sight of all his people, to be the most suitable place, so there he -dragged his weary and nearly paralyzed Jegs. When he arrived at the mouth of the den he entered it and was never seen again by mortal eye ia his normal shape, but, transformed into a snake, he became the father of all the snakes en the plains."—Detroit Free Press.

WITHOUT AN ENDING. An Old Salt's Start on an Ezcit- intr Narrative. Interesting Preliminaries to a Story He Hadn't Time to ITInlsi—A. -War- Time Adventure witli a Big Sailing Vessel. The sunlight streaming through the half-onencd port cast a ruddier glow upon the bronzed visag-c of a commander of one of the big passenger steamships which ply between this and European ports. Seated opposite Lo him was an incruisitive young- man, pencil und notebook in hand. •'Yes," said the captain, reflectively, ."I have had some strange experiences during the forty-odd years that I have spent \ipon the ocean and have seen some strange scenes. But you want to know the most sing-ular of them all? Let me see—did I ever tell you of a passenger I once carried who was arrested when the ship reached her dock for murdering- himself? Never heard of it, eh? And I do not suppose you can imagine how such a thing- as a living- man being arrested for murdering- himself is possible. "Well, I can easily pardon your incredulity, for one, cannot readily see under what circumstances a living man could he accused of assassinating himself. Taken all in all, that perhaps is the most remarkable incident that ever came under my observation. I may as well' admit that vanity may have had something 1 to do with placing it in that category, as it was through my personal eEorts that the tangled skein was finally unraveled and the mystery made clear." The captain's pipe went out, and a pause ensued-while the bowl was being- refilled. The young man resharpened his pencil and prepared to write tragedy. "You see, " added the narrator, meditatively, as he watched the blue smoke curling- upward from the replenished brier-root, "the captain of a passenger steamship nowadays has to be something of a detective as well as most everything else. Frequently he has to listen to the complaints of passengers who claim to have lost articles of jewelry or money, but it is rarely the case when they can simplify the question by indicating- the person or persons suspected of appropriating their valuables. "Even if wo were permitted to do so, we could not subject all our passengers to the humiliation of being searched, and I would hesitate a^ long- time before I would take the responsibility of having- any of my passengers treated in such a manner. But the complainants, as a rule, arc never satisfied short of anything- else. The customs officers, hoivevc; 1 , nirord us great assistance in such instances. I will tell you of a case in point which happened on board of a ship I commanded some years ago." "That of the passenger who was implicated in his own murder?" inquired the young- man with his notebook. "Jfo; I am coming to that. This is t.o merely illustrate what I was just saying about the relationship between captain, and passenger. Never mind tho name of the shipj and, by the way, you must not use mine, either; agents, you know, don't approve of their captains talking too much. "The incident took place several years ago in the course of a voyage from Liverpool to Boston. On the morning of the third day out the steward awakened me and said that a passenger was anxious to see me on a matter of great importance. I told the steward to find out who the passenger was and ascertain the nature of his business. The steward returned with the information that the man 'was a Jew and appeared to be greatly perturbed about something, which he declined to communicate to anyone except myself. I sent him word to wait till 1 was dressed, and then had him shown into the cabin. "He came in, hat in band, evidently greatly disturbed about something. The cause of it, which I finally managed to gather from his rather incoherent sentences, was that he had been robbed during the night. 'Come with me,' said I, 'and show me how this robbery occurred.' "His stateroom was a double one opening upon the upper deck. Three other men of his own race occupied it jointly with him. '• 'Now tell me what you lost and show me where it was when you saw it last,' I said. "The Jew—his name was Simon, if I remember well—almost went into convulsions. " 'Lost!' he exclaimed. 'Mein frien, I haf lost eberything. 1 "He then explained that all his savings of a lifetime had been invested in diamonds. These, he said, had been concealed in a false pocket in his trousers and tho aperture sewed up. " 'And where did you place your trousers last night? 1 1 inquired. 'He indicated a -hook within arm's reach oi th.e door. The pocket had been neatly slit open, apparently with some sharp instrument. When I discovered that the door had not been locked during tho night I immediately formed my own -conclusions regarding the case, " 'Whom do you suspect ^of having done this? I asked. "It seems that he also had formed an idea, and gave it as his opinion that some member of the crew had made the incision and abstracted the bag of diamonds during the middle watch, "'Could not one of your companions have done it as well?' I asked, ignoring the suggestion about the sailors, for I felt assured that none of the seamen was concerned in the robbery. A'* sailor would not lave been so particular about slitting a pocket, but would hare taken tronsers and all, and, after helping himseli to -what -was in the pockets, would- have thrown the garments overboard. < 'Simon, however, was positive that his traveling companions had nothing to do with the theft, and, returning to the sailor question again, he insistec that every member of the crew be searched. This I refused to do, and subsequently the matter was dropped. But I was not at all surprised to find a few days later that his companions hac been industriously circulating the story of the robbery of their friend, and had so worked on the sympathies of the other passengers that a good round sum was subscribed to help make good the loss. "The ship reached her port without any new developments. I n accordance with the theory I had formed, I seat for the boarding officer immediately upon arrival, and asked that four officers be detailed to thoroughly searc h the four worthies who occupied the one stateroom. "And were the diamonds found in their possession?" asked the reporter. "Xot a trace of them. Before the examination was concluded I suddenly remembered having seen one of the quartette in conversation with a younj girl who was among the steerage pas sengers. I was convinced all along thp.t the four were a gang of smugglers, and that they had calculated to mislead tho customs officers by the yarn of stolen jetvelry. I hastened to a.n officer and told him my suspicion concerning the girl, tut it was too late, as she had already landed and disappeared. The whole plot was subsequently unraveled, when it was found that the gang had, by aid of the girl confederate, smuggled in an immense quantity of diamonds." "But they did it in. a very bungling fashion, and succeeded by what would be called a fluke,did they not?" inquired the young man with the notebook. "Not at all. What you. designate as their bungling was the result of shrewd calculation. They purposely gave to their story an. appearance of improbability in order to draw suspicion to themselves so that the one who really had the diamonds would have a chance to escape." "But how about the man who—" "Oh, the duplex passenger? .Well, I am coaling to him. Let me see: It was in the sixties, I believe. One of the confederate cruisers was then cutting a pretty wide swath for herself out upon the ocean, and sailing ships that flew the American flag gave strange steamers plenty of room to swing around in. Ah! it was exciting times then, my boy. "Much of it consisted in the impromptu races between steamships and sailing vessels. Many are the ones I have witnessed and taken part in. There,was something to test the sailor. Talk about seamanship! Let me tell you some of the people who go to sea nowadays and call themselves sailors don't know a jackstay from a dolphin striker. I can point out to you at least half a dozen steamships ia this very port to-day that have not u, man forward of their smokestacks who can —but I began to tell you of thoso unexpected ocean races." An unconcerned and impartial listener might have said that he started to tell of something far different, but the ancient and somewhat garrulous mariner was already outside of Gape Hatteras and going south a-humtning before the young man who was engaged in making hieroglyphics in his notebook could interpose a reminder of the original topic. "We were bound to the Brazils," continued the old man of the sea, "carrying a general cargo and a few passengers. Our ship had full steam and auxiliary sail power, and there was something about her appearance that suggested a man-of-war. As I said before, strange steamships were not desirable acquaintances, in those days, and we were not at all surprised to see every sailing ship take to her heels the moment we were sighted from .the masthead. "Early one morning, when well off the Windward islands, the look-out reported a full-rigged ship a little off the port bow and standing on the game course as we were. The voyage had begun to grow a little monotonous, and we concluded to try our heels with the stranger, just for amusement. As soon as it was dawn we saw from the way she was piling on canvas that she thought our appearance too suspicious to warrant close acquaintance. We were willing to humor the joke, and the increased volumes of black smoke that came pouring out of the funnels confirmed her belief that she had fallen in with one of the dreaded confederate cruisers. "She was clipper-built, however, and a very fast sailor, and for several hours we found it as much as we could do to hold our own with the winged racer. The wind was blowing in heavy gusts from the northeast, but the plucky skipper held on to his studding sails, although the frequent squalls threatened to carry all his spars over the side. "Toward evening the wind grew lighter and suddenly died away to a breathless calm. Then came the triumph of steam- We were rapidly nearing the towering pyramid of canvas, flopping idly against the masts, when suddenly the southern horizon grew livid from wind-whipped'foam, and the next moment the big clipper was enveloped in what is known to seamen as a •white squall' "Her sails were taken flat aback, and in less time than it takes to tell it every spar went, over the side, the masts snapping short off above the deck. For the nest few minutes we had plenty to do in looking out for ourselves, but as soon as the force of the squall was spent, we headed our vessel for the crippled chase. We felt in a manner partly responsible for her mishap and hailed her as soon as we came in speaking distance, with the intention of of- rinff a towto port, " 'Ship ahoyr yelled 0«r first officer from the bridge. There came no answer to the haiL A second ef£ort : was made with like result We -waited until close alongside, and then, bailed • again. " 'What do yon want? 1 shouted a red- faced man, throwing down a marine glass, through which he had been deciphering .our name. He had discovered our peaceful character, but the discovery did not seem to put him in a very good humor. "The mate replied with a civil offer to tow the dismantled clipper to port. " 'No you don't!' cried the red-faced man, getting still redder hi the face. 'You don't play any of your salvage jobs on me!' "The result of the brief conference was that we finally steamed away, leaving the hulk wallowing in the trough of the sea. A few days later the breaking of a small part of the machinery compelled us to steer for the nearest harbor, which happened to be that of Port of Spain, Trinidad. Well, would you believe it, while we were there that identical ship which we had left a dismasted wreck ten days before came sailing into harbor with every spar erect and royal yards across. "There is a specimen of seamanship for you. We didn't admire the manners of the captain much, but I must confess that the shipping of the three spare lower masts which she carried on deck and the getting of the other sticks back in place was one of the best pieces of 'sailorizing' I have ever heard of. "It don't require a great deal of skill to ride out a gale, or make your waj' from port to port, but let a ship meet with an experience of that kind and it will prove whether she is manned, by seamen or landlubbers. 'Tain't much of a job to talk about, but you try to uwright a heavy spar without tackle above to do it with, and you will realize what an undertaking it is." The narrator finally found a period, and his listener, who was more interested in the fate -of the man who was in danger of being hanged for killing himself than in the details of seamanship, asked if the case had occurred on that trip. "No, that took place on my nest voyage across from Boston. I will tell you about it now. It was my first command. The second officer of the vessel —his name was Williams—was considerably mixed up in the case, so it will be necessary for me to tell you something about him first. Ho was an unconscionable liar, for one thing. I remember once his telling a story of a fellow who fell overboard from the main yard one night when the ship was in. a gale of wind out iu the China seas. Williams says a boat was lowered, but failed to find the man for the-simple reason that a wave had carried him close under the counter, and when the stern sank in the succeeding swell the seaman caught on one of the afterport sills, and with a desperate effort climbed through and fell over into the pantry in a dead faint, completely exhausted by his struggle in the water. No one had seen the self enacted rescue, and after a half hour's search the boat returned and the ship went on her course. "When the man regained-'consciousness, he found himself surrounded by all the good things of the captain's larder, and immediately set about helping nimself. He liked the unwonted luxury so well that he made no effort to let his presence be known. He remained there six days without being discovered, and then one bright, calm day he concluded to leave his cramped quarters and go back to duty. "Watching his opportunity, be quietly dropped overboard, and as soon as the becalmed ship had drifted a short distance away, he began shouting at the top of his voice. The noise attracted the attention of the crew, who came rushing aft to find out what the trouble was. Those who were superstitious crossed themselves when they saw the familiar face of their lost shipmate as he leisurely swam, alongside and clambered on board. " 'In the name of Heaven, where did you come from?' breathlessly exclaimed the skipper. " 'Captain,' said the man, cheerfully, 'I have been swimming after the ship for six days, and have just caught her.'' "Hello! As I live, it is nearly twelve o'clock, and I have an appointment at noon, sharp. "Can't stop to tell you the rest of that story now. Sail to-morrow, you know. Call on me when.I get back. Good-by." —N. Y. Times. Two Indian Sivords. The swordstick, or "gnpti," is of Indian origin. There is one form of it which is peculiar to chiefs and men of rank. The hilt of the sword, forming the handle of the stick, is crutch shaped, and the owner, when lying on his divan, would have his arm resting upon this, so as never to be taken quite unarmed. It was called in Persian "takiah-i-zafar," or "cushion of victory." Another form, of concealed sword was made so flexible as to be worn around the waist like a girdle.— Chambers' -Tonrn»,L —Poor pit!—Mrs. O'Rafferty—"And how is Pathrick this morning, Mrs. Doolihan?"
