GUARDED BY A CORPSE.
A Curious Object at the Entrance of a
From the Eaquira (.Vrfc.) Enterprise.
In the Squaw Peak Range, A. TANARUS., is a
cave which no prospector has the nerve to
attempt to explore, on account of it being
guarded by n ghost. In the entrance sits a
thing that looks like t he corpse of mi Indian
woman. In 18tW a pnrty of whites found
the cave filled withTonto Indians, whom
they attacked and murdered. Since then
no one has the courage to try to cuter the
cave because of the thing that sits in the
door. Last week George Mutlicws utid his
l' rtnor, nomad McCloufl. bring in the
range, concluded to Imve a look at the
tvpiaw Cave, not having any faith in the
stories told of it. Ti e cave is situated
under the highest butte of the Squaw Peak

look at the thing sitting in its mouth. The

The August number of the Swiss Cross is
an excellent one. One of the best things in
it are illustrations of their new portraits of
Washington. The portraits bear a very
slight resemblance to each other. The arti

Old Concord and a paper on summer sports,

WOMEN WHO FARM.
One Whose Example 13 Worthy of
I once knew a girl of pleasing and refined
manner and rather dedicate physique, are
tiling and ladylike creature, whom one
would have exacted to turn out a school
mistress. . I heard the other day that in the
yours since our paths parted and I lost
sight of her she has become a successful
fanner. She was her father's pride, and
very possibly lie may have pinched himself
when lie sent her to college. At any rate,
when he died, soon after Tier graduation, he
left u large farm considerably incumbered
ami one sou too young to take his place as
its manager. She was equal to the emer
gency and has been running things over
since with eminent success. She raised u
good many hops and has to deal witli a
pretty rough lot. of p-ople at picking time,
but manages them famously. It is a canons
instance ot the survival of ancient supersti
tions that tle neighbors, who like and re
spect her, generally think jt a little too bad
of her that she doesn’t send her brother now
grown quite a big boy, to pay taxes, but
goes herself “just like a man.” A somewhat
similar ease is that of a young woman of
N'yack, N. Y., whose father died, leaving
to her about 100 acres of rough hilly land.
Her neighbors advised hor to sell it for a
song and live on the proceeds while she
learned typewriting or acquired some
distinctively feminine means of support.
Instead, she stayed at home and planted
hluek berries. As soon as the bushes got big
enough to bear she began making money,
and has continued thus pleasantly engaged
over since. She has added strawberries
and currants to her blackberries, and they
do equally well. Mrs. M. Umise Thomas
President of Norosis, herself a successful
farmer at one time, once told me about two
Philadelphia teachers, who after teaching a
dozen years or so, resolved 'to break the
chains of their tlnaUdoui and with tbeir
THE MORNING NEWS: MONDAY, AUGUST 8, 1887.
small savings purchased a farm and went
to raising hens. They are doing nicely and
making plenty of money. Instances like
these in all parts of the country seem to
indicate that women are invading agricult
ure as they have invaded nearly all other
Of course women have always worked
upon the farm, getting up at 4 o’clock in the
morning to cook breakfast before the men
are up, doing the breakfast dishes, cooking
dinner, doing tho dinner dishes, ironing or
sweeping, cooking supper, doing the supper
dishes, and sitting up till midnight to
wrestle with the heaped up mending Iwskct
—all this women have been doing on the
farm right along and no one has denied
them the right. But here’s an alarming
innovation, for women are now becoming
in large numbers farm managers anil own
ers, and doing precisely as well in this more
ambitious undertaking as the men. There
is always this difference between a working
woman and a working man as things go
now. If the woman works for wages she
will get less than the man for the same
service. If she is her own boss she is subject
only to the natural restrictions of competi
tion, and cun do, with equal ability and
capital, precisely as well as the man. One
of the biggest retail clothing stores about
New York is owned and run to advantage
by a woman. If she were a working
tailor and made men’s coats she
would barely escape starvation. It’s a
very- good thing, then, for a woman to
manage her own business and stain I an
equal chance in the world’s competition
instead of taking wages. And agriculture
is a profession in someone of -whose many
branches it is very easy for a woman to
manage a business of her own.
It is in the West that eases of this sort are
most frequent. The women farmers of
Nebraska planted 50,900 trees last year.
Women ranchers are numerous enough in
all the newer States and Territories. In
California the Pacific coast branch of the
Collegiate Alumiue Association, intent on
exact figures as usual, has collected some
statistics of women’s work in agriculture.
The results are remarkable, and a pajier
partially embodying them has been printed
m the Overland Munthh/, and attracted
there much attention. In the Golden State
the average size of all farms is 4(52 acres;
the average size of tho farms managed by
women is 489 acres. A great many of these
farms are owned by widows, continuing
their husbands’ business, but many more,
perhaps a half, were purchased or pre
empted. The women farmers of California
seem to havo turned their attention
especially to the production of fruit, silk,
honey, flowers and poultry. One woman
hired C hinamcn to pick the fruit from a
small farm and made money, one year
84,000, one year 82,400; usually about 83.000.
Another borrowed money at 10 per cent. (')
to buy her farm, paid for it and won back
her shuttered health besides. Another
advises co-operation, thinking that two or
three women can do bettor by combining
their heads, hands anil money than by work
ing alone. One farm of 5,000 acres is run
by a woman. She inherited a half section,
320 acres, and has bought all the rest at
vai'ious times. On the other hand, many
of tho most successful financially have less
than 40 acres of land.
But the successful women farmers do not
all live west of the Mississippi. Some live
along its lower banks, like the silkworm
growers of the Gulf States, who have
formed an association officered entirely by
women and doing good work in the building
up of a comparatively new industry, or like
that woman who was made a member of the
Sugar Planters’ Association the other day,
with many compliments for her experiments
and researches, or like Miss. Sullio 11. Echols,
of Jackson, Miss., who has one of tho finest
herds of Jerseys in the South, or like the
hundreds and t housands of women through
out the South who have turned fingers
unused to work and brains which never
needed to consider economy to the hard
tasks and harder problems which dropped
from the shoulders of husbands and fathers
killed in the war upon theirs. A good
many of them live in the East,, too. I know
one woman which. one of tho most success
ful florists in tho suburbs of Boston and has
great skill in coaxing fruit to grow in
winter to sell for fabulous prices. Since
the establishment of her greenhouse three
men have undertaken to compete with her,
but they do not, all together, do a business
anywhere near equaling hers, because they
lack the woman’s taste m flowers.
Another Massachusetts woman farmer of
note is stiss FJoretta Vining, of Hull, the
largest taxpayer and best farmer in the
Ono of the biggest farms near Now York
is that of Mrs. Bnrnuin.at Hempstead,long
I land. Mrs. Barnum hires about fifty men
most of the year She has some 1,390 acres,
I believe, or more than two square miles,
of land. There aro hundreds of cattle upon
it and many fine horses. She keeps a
carpenter and a blacksmith on the farm to
attend to its tinkering. She supervises
everything that is done on her premises,
and does it well. Of course, too, there are
plenty of women who farm for the fun of it,
like Rose Cughlan at Yonkers, or like Mrs.
Whitney, the fume of whoso success as a
poultry raiser at Grasslands has become
national. But there are plenty of women
farmers dependent upon the land for a live
lihood without referring to such fortune’s
favorites as these. Most of them, too, being
women of unusual intelligence—else would
the)’, perhaps, bo starving on tho slim pro
ceeds of “fancy” work, with no fancy in it,
or trying to walk in some of tho well-trod
den conventional ruts in which women
travelers form such a packed procession
that, poor creatures, they don’t givo one
another room to stand —most of thorn hav
ing had the good sense to think for them
selves tire as much at home in the drawing
room as planning the week's work for the
hired men. Eliza Putnam Heaton.
A PIT OF HORROR.
Dragged into a Eottomless Swamp by
"J. ft. 11." in Wuycrota (Ga.) Headlight.
“You may talk of strange tilings,” said Mr.
Crompton, a gentleman who lias livid in
Southern Georgia near the Florida line, not
far from Okelhiokee Swamp (trembling
earth) for a long time: “but the most horri
ble sight, 1 ever beheld was one which
greeted my eyes on the occasion of an alliga
tor hunt way back in tho fifties, not long
after I hail moved tothi.spartnf t he county.
“Okelhiokee swamp is a very large tract
or waste, which extends over a large part
of Southern Georgia and part of Florida.
The swamp is impassable m a great many
places, ami is very dangerous to ad venturers,
being intersiors.l here and there with
treacherous holes, which show nothing on
the surface except what appears to the in
experienced eye a tract of inud arid water
no more than a foot deep The unlucky
explorers wiio trios to wade through such
places find. however, that they
aro often twenty anil thirty foot
deep, ar.d so narrow that they
are more like big wells making oseajio from
death impossible, after having once gotten
into one of those fatal traps. The swamp
abounds in alligators, and 1 was ono of a
party bent upou an alligator hunt one day
in the early spring of IHVi. From the na
ture of the swamp it is possible to row a
bout in great many places for several miles
without coining upon any obstruction, but
in other places it is imply impossible to go
otherwise than on foot, picking your way as
best you ran in the marshy lowlands. On
the occasion referred to we went as far
ns pMxihle in our Ixiat, getting out at a
point, not fur from the Florida lino and con
tinuing on foot. There were four in the
party, a negro to row the lmt, an English
man named Dutton and a friend of his who
had only arrived a day or two before. Dut
ton was a whole-souled fellow, generous to
a lault and a splendid marksman. We liad
beep on many hunts together and in many
tight places, and his perfect sdf-possession
in cases of emergency impressed me with a
feeling of respect for Idm. In order to kill
an ulligator with a rifle it is necessary to
pierce its eyes, as tho scales render the
balance of its laxly bullet-proof , and 1 never
saw Dutton miss but one in our daily hunt
“When we lnndod and proceeded on foot,
Dutton, as was usual, went in front, his
friend near him, then came up the old
darky, and I brought up the rear. We had
gone no more than two miles before the
swamp became rough aud dense, and, as it
was getting late in the evening, we ealled a
halt and decided to return to our In wit bob ire
the night caught us in the swamp. We
were all ready to go except Dutton, who had
gone some distance ahead and was not in
sight. I told the old negro to go and tell
him to return, aud he had just started in
olieilienoe to my command when the blood
in my veins was chilled by an awful shriek
for help. If I live for 100 years I shall
never forget that cry. It seemed to
come from the direction to the right of us,
u direction none of us had taken, and which
Dutton could only have followed by turn
ing directly away from the line we had
mapped out on starting. As the last note
of that ufwul cry died away 1 looked at tho
old darkey who had started to do my bid
ding, but tie seemed paralyzed and became
so weak he could liiu-dly stand. Thu only
words I could hear from his half-open lips
as I ran past hint in tho direction from
whence tho sound came were: ‘lt’s no use
to go after lain, master; it’s no use.’ Dut
ton's friends followed me quickly, and
wo had not gone moie than
a hundred yards when a sight,
met my eyes the like of which I would
rather undergo death than again to encoun
ter. In an opeu space in front of me was
what appeared to be u marshy stretch of
perhaps ten yards square. It looked like its
bottom was right on the surface of tho
earth, and I would have attempted to wafo
across it without any hesitation except Wi
the sight, that met my frightened gaze. In
the midst of this sink was Dutton, strug
gling ns if with some Invisible power that
was drawing him downward. It was draw
ing my friend beneath the surface of this
hole of slime tutd filth.
“Around his body, coiled in sickening
masses, were reptiles of every description, in
which Okefinokee swamp abounds, and his
cries for help were piteous. When wo first
saw him he was at the edge of the hole, but
by tho timo we had reached there the rep
tiles had pulled him, struggling as he was,
iuto the centre, and to reach him without
tho assistance of a pole was impossible.
The space for 100 yards was as clear as clear
could be. It was growing dark, and every
moment Dutton was being drawn closer
into the bottomless pit. I hallooed to
him and implored him to make a
desperate effort to come nearer to the edge,
so that I could reach him. He had sunk up
to his shoulders by this time, and when I re
ceived no answer to my entreaties I looked
to discover the reason. A largo snake had
coiled itself around his shoulders and neck,
and drew tighter and tighter, until Dutton
was black in tho face and unable to sjieak.
In another instant he went down, taking the
mass of squirming reptiles with him, leav
ing nothing but a bubble on the surface
to denote the torriblo struggle that
had taken place. I turned to Dutton’s
friend, who had not said a word up to this
time, and motioned him to lend the way to
our boat. I was so sick from the sight I
had seen I was hardly able to stand. We
managed to get back to where, the old darky
was. Ho had not moved a step and still
had that scared look in his face. ‘Did they
choke him tor death?’ ho asked. And upon
receiving a reply in the affirmative lie pi
loted us to the boat without another word.
Dutton’s friend left for England a few days
after and I have never seen him since.
The next day 1 asked the old darky why he
acted so strange uml seemed to know that
the reptiles had choked my unfortunate
friend, when he was not there. He said:
“ ‘Massar, it is twenty years this spring
since I said I would never go into the
swamp again. Just twenty years ago I was
hunting alligators with niy only boy. a
smart lad of 17 years, and I heard that
same cry and rushed to where ho was ter
find myself unable ter do anything for him.
I stood there and saw the snakes strangle
him to death and draw him down into that
awful hole. When I heard that cry yoster
day I knew what it was, although T
had not beard it before - for twenty
years, aud it struck terror into my
soul. It would have been no use to havo
handed him a stick, for I tried that when
iny boy was dragged down, and although I
handed it to him no could not take it. The
monsters had pinioned his hands and his
legs, and nothing could be done but to stand
by and listen to his cries, as they choked
him to death and dragged him from my
“Since that time,” said Mr. Crompton,
“though l havo lived within two hours’ ride
of the swamp, I have never gone near it.
Tho very thought sickens mo and causes a
shudder to pass over me. ”
Notes of a Visit There—A Few of the
Hospitable People of tho County.
Mclntosh Countv, Ga., Aug. 4.—1 have
just returned from a few days’ visit to Mc-
Intosh county, and a very nice county it is.
The people are hospitable and know liow to
extend a welcome that comes from tho
Reaching Darien Saturday afternoon,
July 30. I proceeded ty the elegant and hos
pitable home of Capt. Thomas Hilton, on
“the Ridge,” where I was most royally en
tertained by Capt. Hilton and the accom
plished vnung ladies of bis household, Mias
Annie flowatt aud Miss W. A. Hilton.
“The Ridge” is a famous summer retreat
for the citizens of Darien and vicinity, and
to particularism the names of the many gixxl
cit izens who live there would make this letter
a lengthy one indeed. It is the home of that
genial gentleman and soldier Capt. James
L. Foster, of the Mclntosh Dragoons. The
new uniforiqs of t,his grand old organiza
tion, distinguished alike in war and peace,
are expected soon, and under the command
of its gallant Captain a bright future may
be expected for this honorable corps.
On next Wednesday evening in the town
hall at tho Ridge an operetta under the
management of Mrs. ixiy will bo given for
the benefit of tho Dragoons. In charge of
this accomplished lady, assisted by tho
Misses Fox, Clark, Claney, Kenan, Lay,
lioehlieon, and other ladies, the operetta is
bound to be a success. I was present at a
rehearsal, and was charmed with the fa
miliur voice of my old schoolmate and
Mend, Mrs. Florence Lachlison.
In company with some friends, I took a
horseback ride—(the effects of which I yet
feel) to the hospitable home of Mr. John At
wood, near licyeding Bluff, ten or twelve
miles from Darien. The Atwoods are noted
for their hospitality, mid I can bear testi
mony to all that may lx> said of them in this
regard. Here I met Miss Clara tho daugh
ter of Mr. John Atwood, and Miss Louise,
the daughter of Senator Win. U. Atwood.
These accomplished young ladies have re
crntly returned from Wesleyan Female Col'
lege, Macon, Ga.
I also went in pursuit of a “deer” up tho
Altamuha river, but being in a Imggy, with
out gun or dogs, I did not. get any venison.
Uncle Noah Eason, however, was to kill the
game, but from somo cause tills good old

Doboy, I had the pleasure of making the ac

Sleep in most individuals lasts for the
space of eight hours. Exceptions to this
statement are numerous; whether those arise
from duty or laziness we shall not venture
to examine. Sir E. Codrington, the famous
naval officer, when n midshipman, could
watch on deck for nineteen hours; this left
only live for sleep, which in his case was
most profound—so profound that, no noise
was sufficiently strong to waken him; yet
if the word “Signal!” was whispered in
his eur he awoke and was on deck in
Reporters of the House of Commons re
quire great exertions to keep) themselves
from sleeping, A few years ago a distin
guished member of “the gentlemen in the
gallery” took down a speech while he was
sleeping. His statement rests on liis oath.
Calvin tells of a friend of Ins reading aloud
to him while asleep. The organ of vision
was alone active.
Coleridge, the dreaming philosopher, com
posed “Cublu Khan” (one of his poems) while
fast asleep. Next morning he was sure there
had been an acquisition to his literature, but
was too negligent to write the stanzas. A
few days afterward ho attempted to recall
the verses, but they had for the most part
Hod, and tiio p>oern us it now stands is but a
Every one knows that extreme fatigue in
duces sleep, and this in spite of surrounding
relations, which under ordinary circum
stances would hinder any one from resting.
Previous to the shortening of the hours of
work, factory children frequently fell asleep
while working at the machines, although
well aware that they would incur severe
punishment by doing so. The North Ameri
can Indian, at the stako of torture, has been
known to go to sleep on the least remission
of agony, and will slumber until tlio tire is
applied to awaken him.
It is on record that during the heat of the
battle of the Nilosomeof tlio over-fatigued
boys fell asleep upon the deck, and during
the attack upon Rangoon, in the Burmese
war, the captain of one of the steam frig
ates most uctivoly engaged, worn out by
the excess of continued mental tension, fell
asleep and remained perfectly unconscious
for two hours within a yard of liis largest
guns, which wore being worked energetic
ally the whole period.
Habit and time, place and circumstances,
predispose us all to sleep. The celebrated
pedestrian, Copt. Unrelay, when accom
plishing his extraordinary feat of walking
1,000 miles in as many successive hours,
obtained at lust such a mastery over him
self that he fell asleep the instant lie lay
down. The doctor’s wife never hears the
door-bell during tlio night, although the
noise is sufficient to rouse the wearied hus
band; but should a child in the nursery cry,
then the mother, oblivious to all other
sounds, hears at once the infant’s voice.
It is related that the Abbe Faria, who ac
quired notoriety through his power of in
ducing somnambulism, was accustomed
merely to place his patient in an arm-chair,
after telling him to shut his eyes and col
lect himself, and pronounce in a strong
voice, “dorruez,” which was usually success
There seems to bo no limit to the wonders
displayed by man in sleeping. Condorcet,
the mathematician, solved one of his most
difficult problems while asleep—a problem,
too, which puzzled him during his waking
hours. A professor of theology in the
University of Basie ora* wrote a sermon
while asleep; be found it on his desk next
morning. The preceding night lie could not
grapple with the subject as he desired, but
the performance of his sleeping hours wus
quit*; satisfactory to him.
Jenny Lind was one of the most celc
brated singers of her time. No one could
rivul her powers except a factory girl, who
sang sometimes better than the famous Jent
liy. The girl could not uttempt any difficul
piece when. awake, but when slopping she
sang so correctly, so like the renowned
artist, that it was difficult to distinguish be
t ween their voices. On one occasion Milo.
Lind heard the girl, and even tested tile ac
curacy of her powers by giving her a long
and elaborate ebromutic exercise. This the
sleeping girl performed, much to the won
der of the famous Swedish singer.

It affords me pleasure to give you this rejmrt
of the cure of our lit tie grandchild by your Cr-
TK'i'itA Hr.MKDirs. When six months old his left
hand began to swell und had every npjiearaneo
of a large boil. We poulticed it. hut all to no
purpose. About five months after it became a
running sore. Soon other sores formed. Ih*
then had two of them on each hand, and as his
blood l>ecame more und more impure it took
less time for them to break out. A sore came
on the ohiti, lienenth the under lip. which was
very offensive. His head was one solid scab,
discharging a great deal. This was his condi
tion at twenty-two months old. when 1 under
took the care of him, his mother having died
when he uas a little more than a year old, of
consumption (scrofula of course). He could
walk a little, but could not gel up if he fell
down, and could not move when in bed, having
no use of his hands. 1 immediately commenced
with the (Vtici’ka Remedies, using the Cdti
cuu a and Cctictha Soap freely, and when he
had taken one Ixvttlo of the Ctmei-itA Kksol
vknt. liis head was completely cured, and ho
was improved in every way. We were very
much encouraged, and continued tlio use of the
remedies for n year and a half. One sore uft*r
another healed, u l>ony mutter forming in each
one of those live deep ones just liefore healing,
which would dually grow loose and were taken
out: then they would heal rapidly. One of these
ugly hone formations 1 preserved. After taking
n dozen and a half hot ties he was completely
cured, ami is now, at the age of six years, a
strong and healthy child. The senrs on his
hands must always remain; his hands are
strong, though wo once feared he would never
be able t*> use them. All that physicians did for
him did him no good. All who saw the child
