It way bo said, in passing, pPStW vottd, u common, wraw AjiMl to The two TUhgXises had already established themsolves beside a dead horse, of which they wore devouring the flesh soarsely presented by them to the flames; It was the horse of one of them, an old hunter by the namo of Ephraim, a groat slayer of bears m the district of Okhotsk, who had the reputation of slaughtering or capturing at least twenty of thoso animals evory summer. Ephraim, too tl-j-htly squeezed by the Iprav- i 'c of his igo—u young Russian ot kdi'ty, who passed his time in getttnit drunk hi company with the priest—had treated htm asjio treated his bears and had afterwards escaped by flight. Ho had mot tho band of gold-robbers only a few hours before, and had immediately become a member of it. His horse,- competing hi swiftness with tho reindeer, had broken v. log and, for tlmt reason, booh condemned to death. Tho old Tunguso, who had not too much fooling, had slain it after the fashion of tho country. These Tun- gusos, though in general mild nnd paciile, are very cruel towards animals. Thus, their favorite mode of killing a horse which is to bo onton is to throw it Upon tho ground, tie It firmly With ropes and then to open th breast nnd plunge In tho arm , to compros tho heart with tho hand until death ensues They claim that tho moat is much Improve by this process. Old Ephraim and tho other Tunguso wor capable otoating the horsO bo fore tho break Ing up of tlio encampment. The latter, nnniod Avariun, with brouzoi skin, very prominent check bonos and smal eyes black and bright us thoso of the Tar turs, belonged to u Tunguso group of th southeast of Siberia. Entirely clothed in reindeer skin, his chief garment was a kind of largo fur overcoat, open in front, To its nock was attached, to bo used at need, a species of very gay hood—a malachl—made of tho skins of red, black nnd gray foxes arranged in altoruata bands, with a bordo of sea ottor fur; tight-fitting skin breeches with tho hair insido, covered his thighs; his foot and legs wore enclosed in romdcor skin, hoots with seal skin soles, reaching abovi his knees. This Tunguso had joined tho band of gold robbers in tho hope of gaining with it suffl ciont to pay tho price of his betrothed, tho daughter of-one of the golovas or groa chief of his tribe, a rare beauty whom ho had obtained at the exorbitant figure of hundred , reindeer—n veritable fortune Among tho Tungusos of tho southeast, tho price of a woman varies from one relndeei ton hundred. Thoy tell, however, of beau ties of au Inferior order obtained for a pipe of tobacco. Those circumstances do no prevent tho marriages from boingcclobrutoc by a Kussian priest. The other bunlits, after having killed passably foundered reindeer, roasted steaks cut from tho animal;'the Koriak and tho Lamouto, on their sido, prepared a sou): with the contents of tho rmmlc«v's stomach This Koriak was u young man, the solo survivor of a family dead of hunger. When he related to his companions that oach year 1 at the close of winter, famine decimated the inhabitants of Toumiino because, nt that time, the supply of fish caught during the summer gave out: "Why don't, you voutr.iii' lit l'..ihi" iiskctl one of the biinilit-i of lihn.

ANOTJIKll 'claim" near a Pottnwatamifl village called by tlie Indians Wappe, but knoum to the white settlers as Ineliantown. The village was composer) of about 800 lodges or wigwnms, and at that season of the year when Ihe braves were not away on a hunting expedition, had over 1,600 inhabitants. No other white family lived nepr the Flemings within eight miles, but as the Pottnwotiimies were friendly lo the whites, the Flemings felt no anxiety for their safety, and took no precaution to insure it other than to bolt secutely at night the door nnd windows of. the rude log cabin in which they lived, and to keep two or three good rifles banging on the walls, loaded for use. The Flpmintf family consisted of Mr. Flomingnnd his young wife. Mrs. Fleming had been a handsome, doshine girl, the daughter of a wealthy Virginia gentleman, but, although little used to hardship of any kind before mar- ridge, hfttl developed iv« tho wife of a pioneer, all the latent courage und dnring that were hers by inheritance! traits that hud distinguished for generations ono of tho proudest families of Ihe "Old Dominion." She had been a skillful horsewoman in her girlhood, and under her husband's training she hud learned to row a boat pr load unu shoot a rille with as much skill and daring us he, Autuckee, a young chief of the Patto- watnniie8,,had often expressed u great admiration for her skill as a hoi'pewotnan, and had even oh one occasion offered Mr. Eleming a bale of valuable furs if he would find a handsome white girl who 'would be his "squaw." It was a warm pleasant June .afternoon. Mrs. Fleming was spinning at the big wheel the woolen ynrn Unit later she would weave into woolen cloth for winter wear,for like other women of that (oiiod she carded and spun tho wool, wove the clotb, and miidn the gariuenls that they were. The cabin was like thost! of the oilier nil- tiers of that day—built of logs, the spaces between the logs filled with mud "chinking," or "daubing." At one end of the cabin, jvhich'conlained but one room, waj the fire-place, occupying nearly all of ono end of thoj room. An iron "crane" on which a kettle, and irons and tea-kettle could be hung, swung from one side of the rude chimney of rough, undressed stones. Over the fire-place a rough wooden shelf wus placed ngnhiKt the logs, und on this an old wooden clock ticked loudly and monotonously. The puncheon tloor ivns bare, but an attempt had been mado at adornment by tut 1 king to thn rough logs u highly colored picture of '•\Viiihiiigton Crossing the Delaware," and a pngo of an illustrated newspaper,' "Brother Jomitlum." As Mrs. Fleming spun she sang, or hummed an old song, entitled "The Roue Tree:" •'A roan troe hi full liimrltlK Had uvvoet tlovverH HO fair to etia; Ono ronri beyond comparing, For bounty httd iittrrctull mo." A Htcp came hurriedly along the path that led to the woods, and Mr. Fleming culled out in an.cxciteJ tone: "Alock Boyd is down by Ihe ford. He IniH found tho den of wolves that have been our sheep. I've come for tho other rifle, for we're going to clear out the whole pack, if possible." He took down the gun from the wall, examined the lock, and started off at a quick run toward the "bottom trail," as it wns culled, a path that led through the woods.

At last just as they seemed about ready to depart, one of the strangers pointed to the stone and asked what it Was for, Autuckee calledlsome of his braves, and at his command they Iny hold of the stone with a-will. As she peeped through the narrow space that afforded her a glimpse of what was being dohe,.hur heart stood still with terror. They" were closing the entrance to the cave, Mr. Fleming, accompanied by young Boyd, had reached the wolves' den at the ford aV.out three miles up the creek. Here a steip hill or cliff arose abruptly from the side or the water overgrown with stunted cednr bushes and tangled vines, A ciift in the rock wide enough to admit a man Iqd to a caye that had an op j ning further down the hill near the creek bank. "You stay here, said Boyd, "and watch for the varmints and shoot them as they come put, and tho dogs and I will go in and drive them out, If you can kill both the old ones, the dogs will make short work of the cubs." Fleming took a position near the opening, Ho knelt on his right knee and braced his left foot against a solid rock. Ho rested his rifle on his left knee and wait d. The dogs and Boyd were already in the cave. He could hear loose stones rattling down as they made their way over the uneven surface of the rooks inside, and expecting every moment to see a wolf come bounding out of the cave ho raised hii rifle to bis shoulder to be ready, At that moment Boyd appeared at the opening above and called out in a suppressed voice: "For God's sake hide! thn redskins are coming over the prairie yonder with a prisoner." Fleming was a cool, courageous young man, who could think and uct quickly in an emergency. • . i .

Thorp wsro in all about twenty or thirty, and in their midst, apparently bound fast to the pony she rode, wa» a white woman, hor long fair hair floating out on the wind us she rode. Two powerful Indians, ono on each side, rode beside her. each holding jhe bridle of the pony on which she was lied. ' "It's those cursed Sacs and Foxes'," ho whispered back to Boyd, "they ure riding straight for the ford to water their ponies; they have evidently ridden a long distance." "And they are evidently fleeing from pursuit," replied Boyd, excitedly. "Can't you hidein ther cuntil they have gone on? Their halt is not likely to be a very long or 1 )." But this was clearly imposnible. Even if there were no danger in encountering the wolves, tlmt were dangerous when brought lo bay. it would bo almost impossible to enter the exposed opening without being seen by the Indians, always alert, and keen of vihion. While he hesitated, a now danger presented itself—another band of Indians, apparently a detachment from the lirst, came in night from u point which commanded u view of the cliff from base to summit. Not n moment was to bo lost. Taking his rillo in his hand hu run in a crouching posture a little way up the creek, until he reached u place where tho shallow stream had deepened into a dark, still pool, around which was a growth of tall, coarse weeds. Laying his fjitn in a dry place, he waded into the pool, breaking off a reed with a hollow stalk, which he put in his mouth. Then ho sat down in the cr«ek, and the water being over his head, he let the reed project out of the water to breathe through. ' Scarcely hud the ripples nettled into quiet over his head, when the Indians rode up und dismounted.

Garrard, secretary of the Illinois state board of agriculture, during 1889, 204,774 feet of drain tile were laid in Illinois. This is 108,490 feet less than was laid in 1888, but (ho Rtato is pretty well tiled now. except in tho southern division where there are only two feet of tile lo each acre of cultivated ground. There are now in Ihe stale 822,900,626 feet of tile, or an average of 27 feet to ench acre of cultivated land. In the northern division there i' an average of twenty-four feet of tile to each acre of cultivated land, ami in central Illinois forty-three feet. The bent died connly in the state is Platt, where there are 208 feet to each cultivated acre. Prof. Sheldon says tho proportion of butler in milk was much more eiis'ly influenced by changes of food than was the proportion of c.isnine; so that it followed that the nitrogeneous was more constant th,m the non-nitrogenoous matter. Thus the improvement of milk wits more in the direction of an increase of cheesy matter t therefore the high feeding of cattle wns more advantageous when the milk was used for butter than when it was used for cheese. On Ihe Derbyshire hills it-was a common saying that "the poorest land made the best cheese." Paradoxical as this might be it was equally tine, although it assumed that the poor land wits sound, in that it required no artificial duinuge. Cheese produced upon such land as this, properly made, would-be better than that produccdon rich land. ••••!••<!. Vnriii Work In Ijow«r.r Woatlior.
