: ALJONA IOWA, WEDNESDAY MA*'3, ^""""-"••'•^•"•'"''•'-^-"'-"-^^ DICK RODNEY; or, The Adventures of An Eton Boy,.. BY JAMES GJRA.NT. <,«-• ?! CHAPTER X.—(Continued.) "Bah!" said the Spaniard, grinning and showing a row of sharp, white teeth, under a dirty and sable mustache; "though I said so, I knew better. A shipboy seldom has a gold Watch like this," he added, displaying my gold repeater. "Now, we shall keep you; and if this seaman—after he has first sworn that he will not betray us—does not return to us here with ?500 within two hours after sunset, par el"—(here he made a dreadful vow in Spanish), "we will toss you like a dead dog into the ventana of the mountain. Look down, and see what a journey is before you," he added, with a diabolical smile, as he dragged me to the beetling edge of the chasm and forced me to look into it. Our eyes had now become so accustomed to the light of the gallery or grotto that the rays of sunshine falling through the fissure above us were sufficient to disclose a portion of the vast profundity on the verge of which we stood. From the earth's womb, far, far down below, there came upward a choking steam, with a hollow, buzzing sound, which deepened at times to a rumble. This steam or mist rose and fell on the currents of air; sometimes it sank so low that nothing but a black and dreary void met the eye, which ached In attempting to pierce it. Anon the steam would rise in spiral curls from that gloomy bed belcw, where doubtless the fires of the now almost extinct volcano seethe their embei-s in the waves of the ocean. The words "have mercy" were on my lips, but I could not utter them; nor would they have availed me. Ignorant of what the ruffian said, and believing he was about to thrust me in, poor Tom Lambourne, in the fullness of his heart, uttered a howl of dismay; and at that moment the sentinel, whom the gang had left at the entrance to their lurking-place, came hurriedly on, with alarm expressed in | his glittering eyes, and a finger placed, as a warning, on his hairy lip. "Para! Paz! Silenzio!" (hold—peace —silence), he exclaimed, and added that four officers from the garrison of Santa Cruz had dismounted in the rail vine, unbitted their horses and had jseated themselves under a tree to § "** smoke. | This information was received by |he baud with oaths and mutterings Of impatience; and by us with mingled gWgmotions of hope and agony—hope l|hat they might be the means of our pscape or rescue; and agony to know |||at such means were so near, and yet iquid avail us nothing; for on the ilightest sound being made by either fus, there were the Albacete knives |i; our captors on one hand, and the ntana—that awful ventana—on the Cither, to insure forever the silence and Oblivion of the grave. Not the least of my sufferings was gfrom the cord which secured my wrists. lAlready the skin was swollen, cut and lipbleeding in consequence of the tightness with which these wretches had bound me. CHAPTER XI. Sequel to Our Adventure. For two hours—they seemed an eternity to me—it would appear, the four Spanish officers lingered over their wine-flasks and cigars in the wooded ravine, their movements being duly reported from time to time by one of the outlaws, who stole to the cavern mouth and peeped out. At last they mounted, and rode off, when a fresh cause for wrath and delay was produced by the announcement that a wagon, drawn by mules, and attended by several laborers and negroes, had broken down on the road about a mile distant. The irritation of our Spaniards— Borne of whom spoke of having a ship to join—was now so great that I feared they might end the whole affair by disposing of us in a summary manner. This wagon being heavily laden caused a delay for several hours. The sun's rays ceased to shine through the fissure above us; the grotto drew dark by the increase of imperceptible shadows; the dingy faces of our olive-skinned detainers grew darker still; and their impatience was only surpassed by ours, for we, too, had a ship to rejoin. Every minute of these hours—every second of every minute—passed slowly, like a pang of agony in my heart; and every feature of that natural vault, through which the dying daylight stole—with the faces and voices of the men whose victims we were, and more than all, the ceaseless and eternal buzz in the dark chasm that yawned close by—the ventana, or nostril of the Piton—are yet vividly impressed upon my memory. At last the darkness was BO great that a lantern was lighted, and its wavering gleams, as they fell on the •crystals, the spar, quartz, and glassy "blocks of black obsidian and ruddy lava, which formed the walls and arch of the cavern, on the dark ferocious • visages, the gaudy bashes, the naked arins and feet, the scrubby black beards, and brass-mounted knives and muskets of the taciturn Spaniards, sat in a sullen group smoking pa* ojgaritos—ail added to but picturesque horror of the place and of the incident. "Antonio, qtie hora es?" I heard one say, inquiring the time. "Las neuve y media, companero mlo" (half-past nine), replied the possessor of my gold watch, which he consulted with considerable complacency. "Maldita!" growled the others, knitting their brows, for the dusk was rapidly becoming darkness, and they had no desire for killing us, if we could be made profitable. I have often thought since that had Tom actually procured and returned with the required ransom of $500, they would have pocketed it and then killed us both— me most certainly, as they seemed to have other views for poor Tom in the Southern States. "We have had a long spell of this," said he, in a low voice. "I aui going to escape, if I can." "Escape! but how?" "I don't know exactly how yet; but we must first have our lashings cast off." "Would to heaven they were, Tom. My hands are so swollen and my wrists so cut and benumbed that my arms are well-nigh powerless," I whispered in a low voice, like a groan. "Sit with me here, in the shadow of this angle of rock; and now, as the darkness is fairly set in, I shall soon make you free." By a rapid and skillful application of his strong teeth to the cord, which bound my wrists, he untwisted the knot and freed my hands; and then in the suddenly-given luxury of being able to stretch my arms, I almost forgot the necessity for concealing the fact that I was now unbound. I soon found an opportunity for untying Tom's fetters. Then we kept our hands clasped before us, waited and hoped—we scarcely knew for what —while in the further end of this inner cave, our detainers sat sullenly smoking, and, by the dim lantern light, making up cigaritos from their tobacco pouches and those little rice-paper books which are now procurable nearly everywhere. From the conversation of our captors I could gather that our brig, the Eugenie, was visible at anchor in the roadstead of Santa Cruz, a mile or so distant. Three of these Spaniards had placed their muskets against the wall of rock and seemed disposed to doze off to sleep. Close by us lay the plank which crossed that dread ventana, like the infernal bridge of Poulsherro, which the Mahommedans believe crosses the sea of fire that on the day of doom shall separate Good from Evil. Tom and I looked at it and exchanged glances of intelligence from time to time, but the attempt to rush across might prove doubly fatal to one or both. A slip of the foot would hurl us into eternity; and if the passage were achieved we would be exposed to the fire of those we fled from and met by that of the armed man at the mouth of the grotto. Thus our position and its perils were somewhat complicated. Suddenly the distant report of a piece of ordnance, coming from the seaward, made us look up and listen. "El ruido que hace el canon" (the crack of a gun), exclaimed a Spaniard, scrambling up to the lower end of the fissure in the arch of the grotto, and looking out. "We all know that well enough; but what does it mean?" asked the other. The English brig at the anchorage has fired it. I see a li^ht glittering on her deck; and now away it goes up to the foremast head." "It is the Eugenie, Master Rodney," whispered Tom. "Can the captain be about to sail tonight—and without us?" said I, with growing dismay. "No; but he is impatient for us to come off. He knows well what a 'tar- nal slippery set of. imps these Jack Spaniards are, and has shown a light and fired a gun as a hint for us to look sharp." "Companero," said one of the Spaniards to the other, who was looking out, "are you sure that it is the English brig and not ours?" "Yes; but by St. Paul! there is a light burning now on the Castle de Santa Cruz; so our craft had better get her sweeps out and put to sea, even without us. Can the Senor Gobernador have smelt a rat?" This announcement, though we knew not what it referred to, had an evident effect on our captors, who were probably part of a slaver's crew; for they all scrambled up to the opening in the rocks to look out. "Now, now is the time to slip our cables and run. Follow me!" said Tom Lambourne, in a hoarse but determined whisper, as he sprang forward, snatched up two of the muskets and rushed across the plank, tripping as lightly as he would have done along a boom or yard, though it crossed a gulf so terrible. Less steadily, but not less rapidly, you may be assured—yet with a frozen heart—I followed him, and hie bard, tarry band was ready to grasp and dragged ine forward Into safety, while with a violent kick he tossed the plank away, and surging, down it went into the black gulf we had crossed. It vanished in a moment, and no sound ever ascended, for it seemed to have fallen into a pit that was as dark as it was bottomless. "Take this musket, and see that you can use it, sir," said Tom, as an emotion of bravado seized him. "And so, you, Spanish greenhorns!" he shouted, "you thought to sell me for a nigger to the Yankees, did you? Whoop! hurrah!" A volley of Spanish oaths followed this rash outburst, which drew their attention at once upon us. Some rushed to the dark brink, and paused, I suppose, for neither Tom nor I could see distinctly, as there was a double explosion which filled the cavern with echoes like those of rolling thunder, and a momentary glare of smoky light, while two musket balls whistled past us, and I felt one, like a hot cinder, as it grazed my left ear. Then came an Albacete knife, which was hurled by no erring hand, for it wounded Tom's right knee. "Give them a shot, Mr. Rodney!" said he, furiously; "I'll reserve my fire for the sentry—and here he is, already!" And just as the eighth fellow, who was on the watch, alarmed by the firing, came rushing in witli his piece at full cock, Tom fired at him. "Saints and angels!" yelled the Spaniard as he bounded into the air and then fell flat on his face, where he lay beating the earth with his feet and hands. "Fire! fire! Master Rodney, and then run for it, before they can reload," cried Tom, who saw that I was irresolute; "give 'em a stern chaser!" My blood was now fairly up. Wheeling round, I leveled full at the group, one of whom was in the act of taking aim at me, while I saw the steel ramrod of the other, who had a musket, glitter in the lantern light as he reloaded. I fired! I know not whether the ball hit, but ,.one of the ruffians sprang wildly forward and fell headlong into the ventana! "That will do!" cried Tom; "away now as fast as we can—stretch out— bear away for the harbor and the brig!" Grasping our newly- acquired weapons, which we never thought of relinquishing, we rushed out, and, descending the ravine, favored by the starlight, instinctively took the path which led directly to the harbor. With a heart that beat wildly, a head in a whirl of thoughts, and every pulse quickened by the whole affair— by the ferocious treatment to which we had been subjected for so many hours, by the perils which had menaced us, by the narrow escapes we had made from bullets, by the wild and disastrous tragedy which closed the adventures of a long and exciting day —I ran beside Tom Lambourne; on, on, without a breath to spare or a word' to utter. ( continued.) NOTES OF THE WHEEL. REMARKABLE AUCTION BIDS. Relics Which Hare llrouffht Blc Sums at Suleit The Zola sale in France, at which a little table was sold for more than 250 times its value, recalls many instances of remarkable bids at auction sales, says Tit-Bits. Zola's table was worth £4 16s, but the first bid for it was £1,280, and the auction became probably unique in the annals of sales by being closed after a single bid. It is not the first time that a table has been sold for such a remarkable sum, though it is probably the first time that such an article has fetched such a big price. Cicero's table was pat up to auction after his death, but the highest bid was £750. Another historic article for which an enormous price was paid was Cato's purple robe, which Nero bought for £6,800. The habit worn by Charles XII. at Pultowa was sold for £22,000, and a cup used by Napoleon went for 37 guineas. The hat which Napoleon wore at Eylau was keenly bid for at auction by thirty-two persons and was knocked down at £75. Mr. Quaritch, the famous bookseller, recently advertised two of his rarest volumes for sale for £10,250, a sum which may seem ridiculous to most readers. Mr. Quaritch, however, once bid £4,900 for a Latin Psalter, and £3,900 for a Mazarin Bible at an auction sale. Five hundred and forty guineas for a snuff-box suggests that the bidder was verging on madness, but a snuffbox from the emperor of Brazil's collection was once knocked down at this price. Another, supposed to have belonged to Marie Antoinette, sold for 320 guineas, bids of 50 and 100 guineas being quite common at snuffbox sales. A vase in the British museum was knocked down at 1,000 guineas, and two violins—a Stradivarius and a Ruggari—were sold at a sale for £760 and £1,280, respectively. A violin bow by Tourte was sold for £44, and the autograph of Sir Isaac Newton once drew a bid of £64. An admirer of George IV. a few years ago bid £18 for a walking stick which belonged to the king. A silver penny of William the Conqueror's reign was sold nine years ago for £32, and a half-crown of the reign of Queen Elizabeth went for £44. Lord FItzhardlnge once bid 4,500 guineas for a calf at Lord Dunmore's sale. The previous highest price for a bull was 1,000 guineas, bid at a sale at jetton. Lord Fjtznardlnge's bid the highest ever made In England, Don't neglect to keep your shoes'pol- ished.' You can always shine at one end if you can't at the other. M ATTTERS OF INTEREST TO DEVOTEES OF THE BICYCLE. hotnty Crnnkg or Levers—Reciprocating I/evcrs DtMgree with Rapidity of Foot Motion — Pronounced Antagonism — "Plngrger Mill" Mnrtln Write* A tetter A New German Racing Union* A meeting of track owners was held recently in Berlin at which it was decided to dissolve the German united racing societies and the German track owners' association and to form in its stead the "Union of German Tracks," of which Franz Langenscheidt was elected president The following race courses were represented: Halensee track of Berlin and the tracks at Bremen, Brealau, Gelssen, Hamburg, Eln- beck, Leipslc, Mayence, Oldenburg, Neubrandenburg and Weisenfeld. The managers of the tracks of Cologne, Hanover, Darmstadt and Mannheim had written in advance that they would abide by all resolutions adopted. The riders' syndicate was represented by one member. Resolutions were adopted fixing the membership fees of small tracks at $2.50 annually, middle sized track at $5 and large tracks at $7.50; providing for the publication of a weekly official bulletin; making it obligatory for professional and amateur riders to pay annual licenses before being allowed to ride on affiliated tracks; and agreeing not to pay riders any more appearance money, allowing them only their actual traveling expenses and the prizes won. Philippine* at n Market* The Philippine islands are looked upon as a good field for the bicycle manufacturers to unload their old stock in. The bicycle of '96 production is as popular as that of '99. At present Hong Kong is the distributing center for the Philippine trade. The market wants a low-priced machine, one that will sell at about $20 gold in America, wholesale. The high- grade American machines are now selling there for $186, Mexican money, but where one of these is demanded, there is a call for 100 of the cheaper grade. Brakes, lamps and bells must be attached to the bicycle in the Philippines. The streets are crowded with jin rickishas and sedan chairs, and darkness comes on suddenly. In Hong Kong from 5 to 7 o'clock each night the streets are covered with bicycles. The Chinese are the most faithful riders, and are wholly indifferent to the make or the reputation of the wheel. \Vlntltngr Cp tlie Board of Trarto. Secretary George Hanimann of the National Cycle Board of Trade—which organization is gradually expiring— expects that by May 1 his labors will be at an end. He is getting his claims fn the collection department in shape to return to the owners. The committee in charge of the board's affairs are about to remit the first dividend to tlie stockholders. It will be 30 per cent. It is now found that the committee cannot remit the full amount paid for stock by members admitted on Aug. 18 last until the court passes upon the matter. Similarly with the expense accounts of the directors. If the court decides adversely on these two matters the general body of stockholders will receive about 50 per cent of the value of their holdings. Martin \Vrltus of African Tracks* "Plugger Bill" Martin, writing from Durban, Natal, states that after his defeat of Van Heerden, the South African champion, at Cape Town, he rode at Graff Reinet, where he was beaten owing to the puncturing of his tire in the race. Continuing, he writes: "I won at Grahamstown, also at Kins Wllliamstown, but was beaten at East London, where I got two bad falls. "PLUGGER BILL" MARTIN. We were given a reception and dinner here by the Amateur club and got the same at Greenstown, where I was the winner. I have had a splendid time and have been well received everywhere. There are very few professionals in this country. There is a pretty ground at Cape Town and a nice three-lap cement track. The stand is a good one and the only one in South Africa, The others are mostly bleachers. The Cape Town track is about the only good one, according to the American standard. The i rest are not unlike that famous death- j trap at Mahanpy City, where we $11 1 inet our Just deserts for riding on ! such a track, Yet I am riding on as ' d here and doing well enough, Bot»ry An inventor of Auburn, N. T., a^g constructed the bipycJe pto^wn • iccowanylng ijlu^tratlpjqi, i«a to sell the 'patent. He states that he has a cable as large as a lead pencil, tested to stand 1,200 pounds pressure without stretching, and unaffected by moisture. It is made of fibrous material. The inventor has one bicycle built upon this plan in working order. In reply to the inventor's inquiry in regard to the commercial chances for the machine, the following is -the advice of the Cycle Age: "There has never been any great mechanical difficulties In constructing cable-operated bicycles on the plan shown in the photograph, except to obtain a cable with the necessary properties. Such a cable may be worth more separately than in connection with the mechanism—easier to introduce and sell. Looked upon as a purely mechanical contrivance, it is generally admitted that a bicycle with lever propulsion instead of rotary cranks shows a higher efficiency per pound of pressure applied to the pedals, but the trade and the public stubbornly insist that the rotary motion is in better accord with the nature of man as a source of power. There is something in the complete stop of foot travel after each stroke which disagrees with man's physical nature. It might be different if a cyclist were always taxed to the utmost of his capacity for power exertion when cycling. But he is not. His capacity for rapidity of motion is what is taxed moat heavily. For merchandise carriers and similar purposes the cable and lever system may be preferable, but hardly for a bicycle. The cable system must ordinarily be supplemented by a brake, as it operates only one way. And to apply a brake on all occasions when the cyclist on a chain- driven bicycle would slow up by back- pedaling or merely allowing his feet to be dragged around by the pedals, is at best awkward, especially in large cities or where street traffic is congested." Trade In Just Opening; In Slam, The demand for bicycles has just begun in Bangkok, owing to the king's trip to Europe, where he became familiarized with the use of the bicycle and as a result ordered several for himself and his establishment. Bangkok is about the only city in Siam, with the exception of one or two small places, where a bicycle can be ridden at all. There Is no basis for determining how^many might be sold should the people decide to use them. There are many obstacles to be met with in the cycle business there—referring to the American production exclusively. A large majority of the manufacturers demand cash, not considering that it requires from three to four months to land the shipment theve; firms in Europe allow ample time for delivery before expecting settlements. This discrepancy accounts for American business (not only in the cycle line) being so small. Another detriment is the excess freights from America compared with rates from European ports, Every Bl<lor an Agent. They have a new scheme in England for selling bicycles, whereby each customer becomes an agent. Certain makers advertise to supply customers with bicycles for $1.25. On the payment of this sum the customer Is given a coupon, and this coupon Is returned to the makers with $7.50. For the $7.50 a certificate is issued containing six coupons, each valued at $1.25. These six coupons the purchaser Is expected to sell to six friends for $1.25 each, which repays him for the $7.50 which he has paid. Then the customer's friends are expected to do what the original investor has done. Supposing, however, that only four friends in place of six send in their applications for machines and agencies; the first purchaser is blandly told that there is nothing to prevent him from paying $18 more, on receipt of which the machine will be sent to him. To Promote Outlaw Races In Chicago' It is the avowed intention of John West to vigorously oppose the L. A, W. racing interests in Chicago. The trainer will be manager of a cycle track to be centrally located in one of the densest residence districts of the city. This will be an N. C. A. track, and three grand circuit dates in addition to a monster meet July 4 will be applied for. Mr. West will establish a training colony for amateurs, and will charge the riders nothing for superintending their training. They will have to pay for the rubbers. The training quarters a-t the track will be the most complete in this country. Seattle Cyclists Help Themselves. There are more than twenty miles of exclusive bicycle paths in Seattle at the present time, which will be largely increased in 1899. The cost of these paths was about $$,100, wlijeh was raised by voluntary donations a»d license fee of pn,e dollar pe? yea? on each, Woyole, ?0 to tip VALUE OP OARS: stAMPs, Immense Price Sometimes Paid by V** riotm Collector*. The rarest stamp in the world la tha penny Mauritius stamp of 1841 W. M. Peckit of London last year paid $4,840 for one. The only other one khowa to be in existence is in the British Museum. The entire issue was burned by accident after a few used on invitations to an official ball. Four thou* sand four hundred .dollars was the next highest price for a stamp, that amount being exchanged for a blua one issued by tho postmaster at Baltimore before the government took charge of all stamp business.There are but two more of these.prlnted on white paper and worth $2,000 each. It was the custom during the civil war for southern postmasters to issue stamps on their own responsibility to pay their own salaries and expenses. These bring from $1,000 to $1,500. Hawaiian stamps of 1851, the first Issue ever printed, are worth $2,500 each. A mistake in printing makes the United States stamps of 1863 in IB, 24, 30 and 00 cent denominations worth $1SO to $500 each. There is no end of atamp collecting and every year son?e government practice opens a new field. Oheap little countries change, their designs sometimes twice in the courso of a single year. This naturally creates a scarcity of those particular issues, and the engraving company which, printed the original stamps for nothing gets the benefit. The Spanish war has also set colloctors hustling to secunj complete sots. As may be remembered, stamps with the .letters "I. R." imprinted were the first-war tax atamps supplied. A later use of postage stamps of interest to collectors is the introduction of the United States posital service into Cuba and Porto Rho. Our 1 and 2 cent stamps had "Cuba'printed across their face to serve until plates could ba prepared, and some of these stamps are already worth $1! each. Phiiatelism is a fad that is constantly growing;, and the natural competition thus aroused has done much to raiso the prices of all stamps witaln tho last few years.—Cincinnati Enquirer. Care for Their Old In India the Hindoos havu established homes or asylums for »\ged and infirm beasts and birds. Quo of these, near the Sodepur station and about ten miles from Calcutta, is undor the control of a manager, with a. staff of eighty servants and an c«]>erlenced veterinary surgeon. In th-.:i place at present there are 979 animal paupers— 129 bulls, 307 cows, 171 calves, 72 horses, 13 water buffaloes, 15;) sheep, 15 goats, 141 pigeons, 44 cocks and hens, 4 cats, 3 monkeys and 5 clogs. The asylum is described as being systematically and mercifully managed. The cows have especially a good time of it, inasmuch as on festal occasions natives go from far and near to decorate and worship them.
