Major Cox was 70 years old, was
a man of line spirit, and was made

heroes have been fashioned in all
ages of the world.
When the call came for deft nders

unteered as a member oi Company

went to Virginia, where lie partic
ipated in many of the great battles
of the war. In all those stirring
scenes of strife and carnage lie bore
himself as a cool, intrepid soldier,
exhibiting all those rare qualities
that lit men to command their fel
lows, and to lead them into “the
deadly and imminent breach.”
At Gettysburg, where his com
pany lost twenty-two men killed
and wounded from one shell, lie
received a wound that gave him
trouble, even on his dying bed- He
returned to his command in time
to take part in the great battles of

Lord Ferrers’ Tragic Journey to the
Famous Old Gallows.
Park lane was Tyburn :ane, and it
seems as if the gallows--described in
an old document as movable—-at one
time stood at ils east corner, it was
there the ferocious Lord Ferrers was
banged in 17tu for murdering Lii.s serv
Horace Walpole’s words paint the
picture well: "He shamed heroes. He
bore the solemnity of a pompous and
tedious procession of above two hours
from the Tower to Tyburn with as
much tranquillity as if he were only
going to his own burial, not to bis own
execution.” And when one of the lira
goons of the procession was thrown
from his horse Lord Ferrers expressed
much concern and said, "I hope there
will be no death today but mine."
On went the procession, with a mob
about it sufficient to make its progress
slow and laborious. Small wonder that

Lord Ferrers was refused, for. said
the sheriff, late regulations enjoined
him not to let prisoners drink while
passing from the place of imprison
ment to that of execution, great inde
cencies having been committed by the
drunkenness of the criminals in the
hour of execution.
"And. though," said he. “my lord, 1
might think myself excusable in over
looking this order out of regard to
your lordship's rank, yet there is an
other reason, which. 1 am sure, will
weigh with you. Your lordship is sen
sible of the greatness of the crowd.

confluence would be so great that it
would delay the expedition which your
lordship seems so much to desire."

They Were Not Indians.
It is said that when the first Chinese
entered California the Indians were
very curious about them. A dispute
arose among some of them as to what
country the strangers might hail from
and whether or not they were Indians.
The Indians decided to apply tlie wa
ter test. One day a party of Indians
met a party of Chinamen approaching
a little stream. The strangers ap
proached tile bridge and started across.
The Indians, too, tiled across and.
meeting tlie Chinamen in midstream,
pushed two of them into the angry,
Bpooining current below. The test was
conclusive. They could uot swim.

The Aurohuacos of Colombia Worship
the Yellow Metal.
Infesting the snow clad slopes of
sun kissed Aborqueta. "tile Sentinel,”
one of the highest peaks in the Sierras
de San M-arta, in northern Colombia,
is one of the strangest tribes of In
dians known to ethnologists— the Au
rohuacos. Their name means "bidden
gold." or "gold hiders.” and that is
just what they are. They worship
the yellow metal, dividing their devo
tions between gold and the sun.
The Aurobuaco will do anything for
gold. Murder is nothing it it gains
him the tiuiest hit of gold. He works
for any kind of money. When he gets
enough silver or copper or paper mon
ey he changes it for gold and then
hurries with it to his mountain fast
nesses, there to hide it. and come back
for more. Why he wants it is impos
sible to say. No Aurobuaco ever was
known to part either with gold dust
or gold coin.
His neighbors, the Talemancas. are
wholly different. They regard gold or
emeralds, also found in Colombia, as
simply a medium of exchange for whis
ky or aguadienle. The Talemancu is
superstitious to an absurd degree and
wears a wild turkey's foot on a neck
lace as a talisman against sickness
and bud luck. He worships tire as the
cleansmg and redeeming god.
In this favored region is plenty oC
alluvial gold which only needs to be
taken out to make the republic of Co
lombia rich and powerful. But the
Aurohuacos spoil the best laid plans
of men who come there to mine. They
let men dig and dig and wear their
fiugers away washing the precious ye!:
low grains out of the earth, and theu
they murder the miners for their treas
