TIIK REL'UHLICAN', ALGONA, IOWA, WEDNESDAY, MAY 25, 1892. Holiest of all in Leavening Power.—Latest U. S. Gov't Report Powder ABSOUUIEiy PVBE By E BIDEB Author of "Colonel Quaritbh, V.

Why did the Amaboona slay the people of Mosilikaaye by tho thousand? Because he was there. And so I eay to you that, had I not drawn him from the laager by iny magic but three hours ago, you would have been conquered—yes, you would have been blown away like the dust before the wind: jpu would have been burned up BIT '_ * r ^ j ^ ^ ~. f »__ it . » I * Suddenly, without a sound, Bombyane (shook his assegai and rushed straight at "•me. I saw his huge form come; -l&e ft man in a dream, I saw the broad spear flash on high; now he was on me. Then, prompted to it by some providential impulse, I ^rojjiv^ * o ^-^WA^ onA quick as Ifocb* stretched out my spear. JSe ^roveatme; the blade passed over my head. I felt a weight on my assegai; it was wrenched from my hand, his great limbs knocked against me. I glanced round. Bombyane was staggering along with head thrown back and outstretched arms from which his spear had fallen. His spear had fallen, but the blade of mine stood out between hia shoulders—I had transfixed him. Ho stopped, swung round slowly as though to look at me, then with a sigh the giant sank down- dead. For a moment there was silence; then, a jrreat cry rose—a cry of "Bombyane ia dead. The white spirit has slain Bornb- yanfc. Kill the wizard, kill the ghost who has slain Bombyane by witchcraft." Instantly I was surrounded by fierce faces, and spears flashed before my eyes. I folded ray arms and stood calmly waiting the end. In a moment it would have come, for the warriors were mad at seeing their champion overthrown thus easily. But presently through the tumult I heard the high cracked voice of Indaba-zimbi. "Stand back, you fools!" it cried; "can a spirit then be killed?" "Spear him! spear him!" they roared in fury. "Let i.us see^f he is a spirit. How did a spirit slay Bombyane with an assegai? Spear him, rain maker, and we shall see." "Stand back," cried Indaba-zimbi again, "and I will show you if he can be killed. I will kill him myself, and call him back to life again before your eyes. Macumazahn, trust me," he whispered in my ear in the Sisutu tongue, which the Zulus did not understand. "Trust me; kneel on the grass before nie, and when I strike at you with the spear, roll over like one dead; then, when you hear my voice again, get up. Trust me—it is your only hope." Having no choice, I nodded my head in assent, though I had not the faintest idea of what he was about to do. The tumult lessened somewhat, and once more the warriors drew back. "Great white spirit—spirit of victory," said Indaba-zimbi, addressing me aloud, and covering his eyes with his hand, "hear me and forgive me, These children are blind with folly, and think thee mortal because thou hast dealt death upon a mortal who dared to stand against thee. Deign to kneel down before me and let me pierce thy heart with this spear; then, when I call upon thee, arise unhurt." , . , , I knelt down, not because I wished to, but because I must. I had not overmuch faith in Indaba-zimbi, and thought it probable that ho was in truth about to make an end of me. But really I was so worn with fears, and the horrors of the night and day had so shaken my nerves, that I did not greatly care what befell me. When I had been kneeling thus for about half a minute Indaba- zimbi spoke. "People of the Umtetwa children of T'Chaka," ho said, "draw back a little space, lest an evil fall on you, for now the air is thick with ghosts." They drew back a space, leaving us in a circle about twelve yards in diameter. "Look on him who kneels before you," went on Indaba.-zhnba, "and listen to my words, to the words of the witch- finder, the words of the rainmaker, Indaba-zimbi, whoso fame is known to you. He seems to be a man, does he not? I tell, you, children o* the Umtet- wa, he is HO man. He ia the spirit who gives victory to the white men; he it is who gave them assegais that thunder and taught them how to alar*. Why the dr'/ graSS in the winter when the fire is awake among it. Aye, because he had but been there many o/ yGuT bTaT^TT^" 41 ''** 11 k* 9 vercomm g a few—a pinch of men who coia.** ^ a . counted on the fingers. But because 1 loved you, because your chief Sususa ia my half brother—for had we not one father?—I came to you, I warned you. Then you prayed me and I drew the spirit forth. But you were not satisfied when the victory was yours, when the spirit of all you had taken asked but one little thing—a white child to take away and sacrifice to himself, to make the medicine of his magic of" Here I could hardly restrain myself from interrupting, but thought better of it. "You said him nay; you said, 'Let him fight with our bravest man, let him fighl with Bombyane, the giant, for the child.' And he deigned to slay Bombyane as you have seen, and now you say, 'Slay him he is no spirit.' Now I will show you ii he is a spirit, for I will slay him before your eyes, and call him to life again But you have brought this upon your tie iivear roared tne soldiers, stricken with mortal fear. Then slowly and with the greatest dignity I gradually arose, stretched my arms, yawned like one awaking from heavy sleep, turned, and looked upon them unconcernedly. As I did so, I noticed that old Indaba-zimbi was almost fainting from exhaustion. Beads of perspiration stood upon his brow, his limbs trembled and his breast heaved. As for the Zulus, they waited for no more. With a howl of terror the whole regiment turned and fled across the rise, so that presently we were left alone with the dead and the swooning child. "How on earth did you do that, Indaba- zimbi?" I asked in amaze. "Don't ask me, Macumazahn," he gasped. "You white men are very clever, but you don't quite know everything. There are men in the world who can make people believe they see things which they do not see. Let us be going while we may, for when these Umtetwas have got over their fright they will cprne back to loot the wagons, and then perhaps they will begin to ask questions that I can't answer." And here I may as well state that 1 never got any further information on this matter frpm old Indaba-zimbi. But I liaVQ my theory, and here it is for •whatever it may be worth. I believe bat Indaba-zirnbi mesmerized the whole rowd of onlookers, making them believe hat they saw the assegai in my heart ind file blood upon the blade. The reader may smile and say "Impossible," but I vould ask him how the Indian jugglers do their tricks unless it is by mesmerism, ["he spectators seem to see tho boy go under the basket and there pierced with daggers; they seem to see women in a ;rance supported in mid air upon the joint of a single sword. In themselves ;hese things are not possible; they vio- ,ate the laws of nature, and therefore must be illusion. And so, through the glamor thrown upon them by Indaba- zimbi's will, the Zulu impi seenled to see me transfixed with an assegai that never touched me. At least, that is my theory; if any one* has a better, let him adopt it. The explanation lies between illusion and magic of a most imposing character, and I prefer to accept the first alternative.

Now he will arise and leave you, and woe be on you if you try to stay him. Now al men," he went on, "look for a space upon this assegai that I hold up," and heliftec the bangwan of the deceased Bombyan high above his head, so that all th multitude could see it. Every ey was fixed upon the broad, bright spear. For a while he held it still, then he moved it round and round in a circle, muttering as he did so, and still their gaze followed it. For my part, I followed his movements with the greatest anxiety. '*That assegai had already been nearer my person than I found at all pleasant, and I had no desire to make a further acquaintance with it. Nor, indeed, was I sure that Indaba-zimbi was not really going to kill me. I could not understand his proceedings at all, and at the best I did not relish playing the corpus vile to his magical experiments. "Look! lookl look!" he screamed. Then suddenly the great spear flashed down towards my breast. I felt nothing, but it seemed as though it had passed through me. "See!" roared the Zulus. "Indaba- zimbi has speared him; the red assegai stands out behind his back." "Roll over, Macurnazahn," Indaba- zimbi hissed in my ear, "roll over and pretend to < ie—quick! quick!" Host no time in following these strange instructions, but falling on my side, threw my arms wide, kicked my legs about, and died as artistically as I could. Presently I gave a stage shiver and lay still. "See!" said the Zulus, "he is dead, the spirit is dead. Look at the blood upon the assegai!" "Stand back! stand back!" cried Inda- ba-zinibi, "or the ghost will haunt you. Yes, he is dead, and now I will call him back to life again. Look!" and putting iown his hand he plucked the epear from wherever it was fixed, and held it aloft. "The spear is red, is it nbt? Watch, men, watcht it grows white!" "Yes, it grows white," they said. "Oht it grows white." "It grows white because the blood returns to whence it came," said Indaba- rimbi. "Now, great spirit, hear me. Thou art dead, the breath has gone out Df thy mouth. Yet hear me and arise. Awake, white spirit, awake and show thy power. Awake! arise unhurtl" I began to respond cheerfully to this imposing invocation. "Not so fast, Macumazahn," whispered Indaba-zimbi. I took the hint, and first held up my arm, then lifted my head and let it fall our again. "He lives! by the head of T'Chaka. THE NATIONAL BOARD OF HEALTH WASHINGTON, D. C. In Bulletin—Supplement No. 6, page 33, places Dr. Price's Cream Baking Powder HIGHEST OF ALL IN LEAVENING STRENGTH. Prof. R. C. Kedzie, of the Michigan State Agricultural College, who personally superintended the examination, says:—"With the exception of DR. PRICE'S CREAM BAKING POWDER, which is a cleanlyipure, wholesome compound, conforming with natures own formulas of puman diet, we found every sample more or less tainted." CHAPTER VI. WAS not slow to take Indaba-zim- bi's hint. About a hundred and fifty yards to the left of the laager was a little dell where I had hidden my horse, together with one belonging to the Boers, and my saddle and bridle. Thither we went, I carrying the swooning Tota in joy we found the horses safe, for the Zulus had not seen them. Now, of course, they were our only means of locomotion, for the oxen had been sent away, and even had they been there we could not have found time to inspan them. I laid Tota down, caught my horse, undid his knee halter and saddled up, As I was doing so a thought struck me, and I told Indaba-zimbi to run to the laager and see if he could find my double barreled gun and some powder and shot, for I had only my elephant "roer' and a few charges of powder and ball with me. He went, and while he was away, poor little Tota came to herself and began to cry, till she saw niy face. "Ah, I have had such a bad dream," she said, in Dutch; "I dreamed that tho black Kaffirs were going to kill me. Where is my papa?" I winced at the question. "Your papa, has gone on a journey, dear," I said,, "and left me to look after you. Wo. shall find him one day. You don't mind going with Heer Allan, do you?" "No," she said, a little doubtfully,, and began to cry again. Presently she re. membered that she was thirsty,, and asked for water. I led her to the river and she drank. "Why is my hand red, Heer Allan?" she asked, pointing, to the smear of Bombyane's blood; stained fingers. At that moment I felt very glad that I had killed Bombyane. "It is only paint, dear," I said; "see, we will wash it and your face." As I was doing this» Indaba-zimbi returned. The guns were all gone; he said tha Zulus had taken them and the powder. But he had found some things and brought them in a sack. There was a thick blanket, about twenty pounds weight of biltong or sun dried meat, a few double handfula of ship's biscuits, two water bottles, a tin pannikin, some matches and sundries. "And now, Macumazahn," he said, "we had best be going, for those Umtet- was are coming back. I saw one of them on the brow of the rise," That was enough for me. I lifted little, Iota on to the bow of my saddle, climbed Into it and rode off, holding her in front of me. Indaba-zimbi slipped a rein into the mouth of the best of the Boer horses, threw the sack of sundries on to its back and mounted also, holding the elephant gun in his hand. We went eight or nine hundred yarcU in silence till we were mite out of rswige of sight from the wagons, wmcn were ui a UOHUT., „._ pulled up, with such a feeling 9! thankfulness in my heart as cannot be told in words; for now I knew that, mounted as we were, those black demons could never catch us. But where were we to steer for? I put the question to Indaba zimbi, asking him if he thought that we bad better try and follow the oxen that we had sent away with the Kaffirs and women on the preceding night. He shook his head. "The Umtetwas will go after the oxen presently," he answered, "and we have ~^-n ^jir.-.iarj; of thaoJ-" [To be continued next week.] We notice an article in the Ohio Farmer advising perpendicular draining; Where the hard-pan Is near the surface preventing the water from going down it might answer.

Billou*, The-, feeds of a neighborhood 1 have a controlling influence in making good buttoi: Our corn is not readily e<jnalled in that respect. It is tha belief of a good many thinking men^ at present, that corn, fed alone is partially wasted, iti we hear of no suspicion that corn fed atone injures butter. Corn feeding is economy if we cannot find some cheap, albuminous grain to feed with it. The people want good stock. Good; cattle for breeders, are selling high. Good horses and shtep are in great demand. Good hogs and chickens are wanted at good prices. It Is only necessary to produce what is excellent to secure good prices. Less than this does net pay. The common farmer who only wants to make meats, pays well for good animals, and gets hla money back when he sells. It is remarkable how much good young grass does an animal One would think that a young thing turned out on short scant grass would lie down and die, but nature has prepared a nutritive ration not equaled by the cunning of man. The young grass is more nutritious than the very cheapest ration we can afford to feed. The albuminoids are as one, to two of the carbo-hydrates, and no farmer in winter can mix rations that way, although the Germans are experimenting that way.

But dairymen learn most about mechanical improvements. There is not enough said about the feed that makes milk and the science of preparing that feed. The cheapest feed is the pasture, and the early pasture, like tho early lamb and the early run of fish, makes the most money.^ Look about you and see the proof tf this. This rainy spring, while It will prevent the cultivation of some lands that have been good farming lands for years past, is a great blessifag to the State. The grass crop is firat in importance in the State and a good crop of grass is assured. Hay that has in many instances been cut short by the droughts of years past, will be heavy. The low water lands of the State will be raised and one only needs to look back over the last five years to remember the sacrifices that were made every year because of lack of •water for stock The sacrifices of past years have been very heavy. When pastures and springs dried up tho farmer bad to sell for what he could get Cold storage companies bought stock and held the meat in reserve to use it for bearing prices farther along. Our heavy rains will give us grass and water this season. Corn may be late, but grass, hay, oats, barley, wheat and other crops will be heavy. learn the Most Perfect Made. No Ammonia, Alum. How is the time to visit J. B. Laird's furniture store when you caa get your choice from his mamoth stock. 8M The people like good stock and will pay for it, as sales this spring prove. They will not buy paper. They must have good animals. Those who pay good prices for sires must have pedigrees and good animals both. Those who are feeding pedigreed stock of any kind, and are selecting and rejecting and increasing the excellence of both pedigrees and animals will have valuable property that will pay to keep oa their farms and have also what other people will pay for, at figures that will amply repay »U In planting sugar beets to ability of our soil and climate and labor conditions, with a view to growing sugar it is interesting to know that an acre of beets is worth the oo^fc of growing for feed, for milk cows. It is also interesting to know that beets are grateful to the cow. She eats all she gets and does well on them. Beets induce milk giving. They keep cows in good condition. The Iowa station will report their effects on quality of butter in one of its coming bulletins. It is well known that beet pulp after the sugar has been extracted is one of the best nutrients cattle can have either for meat or milk. We belelve that as soon as our farmers have had tinw to study the situation in regard to sugar beets they will be adopted into the farm system permanently.
