ers Of The Constitution.
Fowjjkr HPnffcos, September 10.—There
arc some g<jod signs of war in these parts,
lents are pitched all around the springs, and
shanties and hunks for the soldiers and sheds
for the horses and mules. Strong boxes are
full of powder and fuse, and the little town is
full ol excited people, who have gathered to
see the beginning of the fight—to hear the
sound of the first gun. Day after day they
have waited for the grand army and the train
of supplies—food for the men and forage for
the horses. Public expectation has been up
to a fever heat, and everybody exclaimed,
“ When will they come, and what has become
i/f Ntillivan T' One could hear all sorts of
Conflicting reports about General Sullivan and
his caravan. Some said he had 3,000 mules
and a thousand wagons, and 500 vokeofoxen,
and I thought from the talk that maybe he
would come like Job, with 7,000 camels and
she asscj without number. But night came
ngnln and there was no Sullivan. Hope had
almost despaired, when just before day there
was a sound in the distance like the sound
ol many waters—nearer and nearer it came,
when suddenly there was a voice in the street
crying, “ Sullivan is coming !” Men, women
and children rose from their beds in disheveled
haste and rushed to the doo-s and windows,
and sure enough the long trian came rumbling
nnd rolling down the hill. It was like an
artillery train moving by night to its line of
But the silver moon was shining on a
peaceful scene. There is no war in these
parts, except a war against the wilder ess.
and bad roads, and high prices, and incon
venience, and ignorance, for railroads, are
eivizers and bring comfort and convenience
and build up schools, and churches, and print
ing offices, and give new markets to the
people and save the wear and tear of wagon
tire and horse-flesh, and they brighten up our
ideas and quicken our movements and serve
as a clock in every household. Nobody gets
tired of looking at a moving train. The novel
ty of it never wears out, and it coines and
goes in such a hurry that we catch the motion
nnd the old man strikes a faster lick as lie
says, “ hurry up, John, hurry up ; I hear the
ten o'clock train a coming.” I was a ruminat
ing over the contrast between now and seven
teen years ago, when Sherman was marching
through this beautiful country, burning and
destroying as he went. I see the trenches all
along from here to Dallas and recall the time,
the only time and the occasion that brought
me and Mrs. Arp and a few infantile children
salong this road, fleeing in hot haste from the
foul invader. We stood not upon the order
v>f our going, hut went, avoiding the big roads
•and camping out at night somewhere in the
’wilderness where an old man lived who gave
M rs. Arp a shelter from the rain and fried
irs 9ome meat in a skillet and washed his feet
iiin ift 'before he went to bed. I noticed next
•niwwiugithat Mrs. Arp didn’t seem to have
inudh'appetite for breakfast. But that is all
over now and almost forgotten, and I was a
thinking about how those people who fought
island ruined us are now putting up their
nnoney to build us up again and help us. I
(Wave mingled a good deal of late with their
officers and soldiers, and wondered how we
•could even have been such enemies, for they
are genial and kind and considerate. I have
seen them and our own boys working together
on the line of this railroad and listened to
them by the camp-fires as they exchanged
their war records and narrow escapes and I
enjoyed their friendly communion. The lion
and the lamb are lying down together so to
speak, though I think an old ram with fight
in him would have been a more appropriate
figure of speech. I am willin’ for ’em to
believe they whipped us if it will do 'em any
good, though, as Bob Toombs says, “ we wore
ourselves out whipping them.” But it’s all
over now, and all right, I reckon, or it wouldn't
have been so, as Cobc says, “we are all a
nation once more.” Mr. Garfield is our
President a9 much as theirs, and I hope the
good Lord will let him live to unite the whole
country in bonds of peace and harmony. I
was a thinking of this curious trait in human
nature that absorbs us in sympathy for a man
who is suddenly overtaken by a great mis
fortune or an unusual danger, when at the
same time we hardly notice a poor fellow who
in a natural way lies at the door of death not
more than a mile away. I was a thinking
about the time when I stood on the shore of
Niagara Falls twenty-five years ago, and saw
a man lodged on a log just above the brink of
the awful precipice, and how Mrs. Arp and I
stood there all day and part of the night
witlvont thinking of food or of sleep, while
thousands of anxious people were all around
us, and every train that came brought more
How smart men worked with life boats in the
rapids, but worked in vain, for though held
with ropes from the bridge above and from
the banks on either side, they whorled over
and over like a feathery toy, and how at last
they built a raft of heavy logs and let it down
safely to him and he got on it and raised his
hands in grateful prayer and all the multitude
shouted, and strong men wept like children,
lie was nothing but a man—a poor mechanic
—and liis wife and little children were there,
and yet all liearts were for the time absorbed
in him and them, and thousands of dollars
were offered as a reward to those who would
save him. A day and a night he had been on
the end of that log and when at the last his
safety seemed assured the people rejoiced and
almost smothered the pour woman and her
children with their embraces. But it was not
so ordained. The raft was slowly guided to
the island, when suddenly it reached a whirl
pool that lifted it on its edge and turned it
over. The man was lost. He rose erect as
the stillness ol those moments I will never
forget, and yet lie was nothing to us or to any
hod 3' except his family and his kindred. I
wonder why it ;s that such scenes arouse us
and affect us, and yet we care so little for the
sufferers all around us who linger and languish
for weeks within reach of our help and our
This litt e village is the center of a beautiful
and prosperous region—a region where good
people live in pleasant homes and enjoy all
the comforts of life and many of its luxuries.
In an area often miles square hardly a poor
man can be found—that is, a man who has
not a comfortable home or is not in some
honest way making a comfortable living.
There are the middle classes that old Agur
prayed about not rich enough to curse nor
poor enough to steal. Some good men a long
time ago settled here, who paid their debts
punctual!)' and these people have kept it up.
A merchant told me that his credit sales last
year we r c s‘J,OOO, and it was all paid by
Christmas except twenty dollars. Here is
where the Kisers made their money, and I II
bet they will never be as happy again as they
were here. This is a nice place to live in.
there is virtue in an)' mineral water
there must be in these springs, for they come
from a sulphurous region. These farmers
have got pretty good crops notwithstanding
the drouth. Some of them are experimenting
with clover, and Mr. Bntner, who set one acre
year before last, harvested from a single
cutting this summer four tons, lacking 20
pounds by actual weight, of well cured hay.
One hundred and twenty dollars from a single
acre. Just think of it, you cotton men, and
General Sullivan broke dirt here yesterday.
There wasent much ceremonial fuss made
over it, but Captain Redman hollered at the
niggers, and the niggers hollered at the mules,
and the mules brayed and jerked an elephant
plow about a foot in the ground, and the good
work was begun. Standing upon the bank,
i I said : ** All hail to the tie that is to bind
I Rome to the sea, and the north to the south.
All hail to King Cole, who conceived, and to
Major McCracken, who planned, and General
j Sullivan, who is to execute. All hail to the
engineers and their working boys, not for
getting the brawny arms who arc to level the
hills and fill up the hollows and tunnel the
mountains as they go. Ilail, all hail to the
syndicate that supplies the sinews of this
peaceful war and to Mr. Sency, a noble patriot
who knows no north or south in his munificent
benefactions.” And Mr. Buntersaid, Amen.

A Description of the Gentle Apaches by One
Who Knows Them.
“ At the time I assumed command over the
Apaches they occupied a territory about two
hundred miles square and numbered 20,000.
These were divided into twenty or more
bands, over which l’edro—the Indian report
ed as leading the massacre—was chief. Of
these 20.000, G,OOO or more were hostiles, and
lived in the White Mountain country, from
8,000 to 10,000 above the San Carlos country.
“ I took command in 1871, but the govern
ment restrained me from making a campaign
against them for more than a year later*
When I did a*tempt to subdue them, they
showed a most desperate front, and fought
with bravery and skill until the middle
of the following May, when they surrendered.
“ The campaign was a very hard one. The
country in which they live is almost inacces
sible. The lava beds of the Modocs, in which
Captain Jack and his band made such a re
markable stand, are macadamized roads in
comparison with the heights and crags where
these hostile Apaches are at home. They
are ver)' brave, desperate, and the most cun
ning Indians on the American continent, be
ing far superior to the Sioux in intellect.
“ During my campaign against them I found
it ver)' difficult to track them at times for
considerable distances, as a band might
travel fifty miles at places in the mountains
and never leave a track or trace on the hard
lava formation. I was assisted, however, by
scouts from other bands of the same tribe,
who knew their defiles and hiding places, so
that I was able to search them out.
“ The old reservation of San Carlos in
cludes the country of the White mountains.
Since General Wilcox took command the
mountain part of the reservation was cut off,
and an attempt was made to get the Indians
inhabiting that part to go down into the low
er lands. I think all did go except Pedro's
band. Subsequently the White Mountain
Indians were allowed to go back, and. they
have remained there ever since.
“What makes these Indians especially
formidable is the fact that they can't he
starved out of their hiding places. These
White mountains abound in game, and also
in the mescal, a plant something like the aloe
or century plant. The plant grows very
large, and frequently bears a growth as large
as a barrel around its stalk. This growth
has a large outside, which can be peeled off,
and a stringy interior, consisting of fibres,
pulp, and an inside core or heart is exposed.
This core is frequently six inches in diame
ter. In appearance it is white and of about
the consistency of a sweet potato, but when
found it is tasteless and insipid. The Indi
ans dig a hole, build a fire in it, and then
throw in stones, which become heated through.
The)’ put wet grass on the stones, fill up the
hole with the mescal, putting grass and earth
on the top. Another fire is kindled over this,
and the mescal left for three or four days. Il
is then taken out, dried, and what is not
wanted for immediate use is cached. The
fruit, if such it can be called, is then very
eatable, and resembles in taste a sweet pota
to. There are hundreds of acres of this
mescal growing in places in these mountains, j
-I iil'ir Ini
year. It is therefore evident that the Indi
ans cannot be starved out.
” As to water, they seem to be able to get
along without it. My troops frequently drove
them to almost inaccessible heights, and the
Apaclies would camp four or five miles from
water and seem to suffer no inconvenience.
“ At the time of the campaign Pedro was
peaceable, and was at the head of only a
small band. He appeared to be a very sen
sible Indian and a man of pretty good char
actor. If lie lias gone into this light as a
leader of the hostiles, he may prove a danger
ous fine, as he has more than ordinary know’l
edge of the military's tactics. In appearance
he is well built and lias a Roman nose, in
which ho differs from most of his tribe, whose
noses are usually straight. lie is a full
blooded Apache, and probably acquired his
name from the Jesuits, who a number of years
ago went among these Indians and left many
names of the Spanish character. In fact, the
Spaniards and Mexicans from time to time
have been among the Apaches, and very man)'
of the latter speak Spanish fluently,
*• But with their intelligence they arc very
treacherous, will steal upon the slighest op
portunity, and arc possessed of a daredevil
try which is seldom equaled. I have known
sixty of the bucks to flatten themselves on the
prairie right by the side of a trail, without
even grass to entirely conceal them, and the
escort of a train to go by without knowing of
their presence. After the escort had passed
the Apaches rose up and captured the entire
” Of their terrible cruelty to captives I have
known many instances. One of these hor
rible methods is to hang a prisoner by the
heels and kindle a slow fire under his head,
dancing about with fiendish yells while the
victim writhes in the terrible agonies of death.
They are merciless in the extreme and spare
neither man, woman nor babe.
“ They have been hostile ever since the
whites have had anything to do with them,
and are so by nature. Of course, the 13,000
or 11,000 who are living on the lower reserva
tion are apparently peaceable by nature, but
they are so mixed up and intermarried with
the others that it is impossible to tell how
much they may be aiding the latter.
“It is difficult for a body of men, or even
one man, to get into this mountainous coun
try without the Apaches all knowing it, as
i hey have a code of fire and smoke signals by
which they telegraph for fifty or a hundred
miles. In a fight they arc the most formida
ble Indians to meet that I know of. Thev
never make a fighting stand unless they are
sure of their force and position, and then i
usually means defeat and perhaps annihila
tion for the attacking force.
“The Apaches heals are well formed and
their physical powers are wonderful. Al
though not usually very large, they are tough
as iron and capable of any fatigue. One of
the bucks will travel sixty miles a day over
those rough mountains and seemingly not be
“ All of the White Mountain Indians arc
probably engaged in this outbreak, as Pedro
has only a small band under him. Among
the G,OOO hostiles there are probably 1,200 to
1,500 warriors. If they arc engaged in this
thing in earnest it means, in my opinion, a
long and difficult campaign. If the rumor
that the Indians have captured Fort Apache
l>e true, which I somewhat doubt, they have
a good supply of ammunition and it will take
a strong force to subdue them. Infantry will
be the most serviceable in the campaign, and
it will require a vigorous line of tactics to
conquer the hostiles.” —lnterview in Omaha
Woman’s Influence on Social Life.
Men, as a rule, arc easily attracted by a
beautiful face, but it is an internal beauty of
character by which a woman can exert the
greatest amount of influence. A true-minded
man, though at first enamored by the glare of
personal beauty, will soon feel the hollow
ness of its charms when he discovers the
lack of beauty in the mind. Inestimably
great is the influence that a sweet-minded
woman may wield over those around her.
It is to her that friends would come in sea
sons of sorrow and sickness for help and
comfort. One soothing touch of her kindly
hand would work wonders in the feverish
child. A few words let fall from her lips in
the ear of a sorrowing sister would do much
to raise the load of grief that is bowinor its
victim down to dint in anguish. The hus
band comes home worn out with the pressure
of business, and feeling irrital.de with the
world in general; but when he enters the
cozy sitting room and sees the Maze of the
bright fire, his slippers placed by loving
hands in readiness, and meets his wife's
smiling face, he succumbs at once to the
soothing influences which act as the halm of
G ilead to his wounded spirits, that are wearied
with combating the stern realises of life.
The rough school boy flics in a rage from
the taunts of his companions to find solace in
his mother’s smile. The little one. full of
grief with its own large trouble, finds a haven
of rest on its mother's bosom. And so one
might go on with instance after instance of
the influence a sweet-minded woman has in
the social life with which she is connected.—
