Between this point, says a dispatch from Altamont, D. T , to the BU Louis Qlobe, and Big Stoue Lake, northeast of here, 1 a carefully-kep- t grave, marked by a slab of marble. It ia In the vicinity of sheet of water which orig-inally bora an Indian name, but which la known to the settlors a Punished Woman Lake, an interpretation of the Indian name which It received because an Indian aquaw, who waa looked upon by her superstitious race aa being possessed of witchery, waa burned at the atake on the shore of the lake eome year ago. The little marble slab strike a stranger aa being out of place there on the prairie, but the most atriking part about It i the Inscription on It weather-staine- d surface. It reads: manner of men ' and women we were, bad arisen and prepared fur us a bounie- - ou repast, to which, wc did ample jus-tice. We ut up late talking, telling n- -' dian atones, and other anecdotes of earlier days, and enjoying ourselves very much; even the lady whose daughter was sick, relaxed a little, and smiled at some of the ludicrous situations. The women made their beds on the floor, the men repaired to the hay stack; aud how well we did sleep! Eatly the next morning, we were awakened to find onr breakfast ready and our team all ready for a start; which ia the acme of frontier ettequeite and hospitality. After a splendid breakfast we stood In the yard ready to embark once more on our tedious journey, and our host was asked to name the amount of our bill. He laughed; but my hus-band urged upon his notice the condition of the wheat field, whose irrigation channels bad beer, so sadly mixed by the wagon wheels. "A shovel and an hour or two's work will fix that all right, and all I charge you," and he gave his departing guest a brotherly clap of the hand, "is to treat any man you may find in like position, as 1 have treated you," What a noble seatimeut, what a grand manly heart under that buck-ski-jumper! In the meantime I had been urging upon bis wile, the acceptance of an article of which site stood in need; but she put it back saying; "I could never think of taking pay for the pleas-ant visit you have made me; but it you really want to make me a present, give me your little dug. He is loot-sor- e and will not be able to continue the journey more than another day,, and my little boy has taken such a fancy to him." The dog in question was a small mon-grel cur, of ho special breed or virtues, but it had been the pet and plaything of the little bov that died, but it would hardly be right to urge her to beg, and, as Bassonio tn "'Merchant of Venice" "then teach her how a beggar should be answered;" so 1 cheerfully assented, although there was a lump in my throat as the delighted child led him away; and the long howl he gave as the wagon drove off without him, sounded like a reproach to me. All day we traveled over the sodden roads of the valley and the rocky winter-washe- d canyons ol the rolling hills, camping at noon by seme sweet springs, and making our dinner from (he stores of cold food provided before starting. When night again crept downjit found us at least ten miles from where we had intended to camp. There was plenty of grass and water, in fact there was almost too much water, for a fine misty rain was tailing, and little puddles of water stood here and there on the ground, and wood was scarce; the only that the woman'' daughter wv dying of heart disease, and pio-si- would not live many days; and it she wished to see her alive she must cbme immediately. Without giving him time to express his sympathy. Mis. Cloudy said with her lace in her handkerchief, "I throw my-self upon your generosity; if I ever see my daughter alive again you must take me to B ; I cu get some of Uucle Sidney's folks to take me from there." What should we do? I leaned out of the front of the wagon to hear what my husband's decision would be, while the "Mother-in-law- " at my back said: "Where'll you put'er I'd like to know? What does she want to crowd herself in on us (01? Why don't her husband hitrb up his team and take bet himself? If I was you I'd just put my foot 011 it and that's what's the mallei;" to-a- ll of which I replied by simply saying "I did not see how we could take her, we were so crowded." Alter a little discus-sion, however, it was decided that she should go; so she got in, and her sack of clothes and basket of provisions were wedged in somehow. For many miles the road was steep, dry and firm; but when we began to circle the higher peaks in a horizon-tal way that, however, still tended up-ward, we loui.d a most peculiar road. The travel through the whiter had pack-ed the louse snow, sometimes in a halt melted state, until now when it was melted everywhere else, the road was on a grade of solid ire; the lower edge hav-ing a precipitous descent of from four to six feet; the upper edge sloping to foot, and holding above it a quantity of "mush-ice,- " slush and very cold water. It requited very nice discietiou in driv-ing to prevent the wheels fiom running of) on the one side, which was really dangerous, or getting into the water on the otherr ide, which was hard pulling for the team. Having bad mv confi-dence shaken in the skill of the driver by sundrv misses, one of which plunged that unfortunate individual, who was walking, into the cold water up to his waist, I decided that walking was pre ferable. The bare ground on either side of this road was so water-soake- d that it was impossible to walk upon it. About noon it turned cold; not cold enough to freeze, but just enough to be intensely disagreeable. We sloped ai noon almost on the summit of the nioun-ai- n range, to feed the team and have dinner. Tbet.iad proved to be much worse as fur as speed was concerned, as we advanced, though less dangerous; for the solid ice. gave place to ice and mud. By two o'clock we began to entertain grave doubts as to whether we would be atile to reach the valley befoie dark; and the prospuct of camping out, under the rirnimstnrfi: was not vtv substitute beuitC some very scmbby sage brush. We were trying; to make the best of the situation, however, aud had turned out the team, gathered a little sage and started a smoke, when we saw a man approaching as with a bucket in each hand, from a house that was probably three quartets of a mile away. He moved, more like an automaton than a human being, straight as a line, and passed through the dejected, muddy, and altogether miserable group of anx-ious watchers ol the struggling lire, and deliberately pouted the contents of one of the buckets, on to our fire. Without a single word, looking neither to the right nor left, paying no attention to our looks of dismay or anger, the huge Dutchman poured the other bucket of water ou the sputtering embers, damping out the last spark. To be continued. The colt in the team, was en-tirely unfit for such a load over such roads and had given out; and just as we were discussing the propriety of finding a suitable place for camping, the "pony expiess" man came along, gave us a friendly "helloo," stopped, and after the usual interchange of commonplaces, re-marked that the little '"giay" was "pe-tered." He was riding a powerful dap-ple gray liorse, and as he looked at the load of women folks, the declining sun and the thieatening fky, he dismounted, saying: "Take the little gray out of the team, and I'll hitch my horse in and help you over the worst of the road;" and in the most matter of fact way in the world, just as if it was a part of bis duty to assist distressed travelers. While talking about it, Mr' Buir had stripped the saddle from his horse, and putting it and the mail sack safely into the wagon, the exchange of horses was qnckly made. New hope dawned in our hearts, and what was more to the pur pose a new impetus was given to the wagon. Kor the next seven oreight miles Mr. Burr and my husband, walked to gether, conversing, while the bad rnad was rapidly left behind. He was a very fine looking man, the brightness of good fellowship,good humor and benevolence seemed to glow in his countenance, and give vital warmth to bis lightest word. We were in sight of the valley, sparsely dotted with farm houses, the long, stretches of plowed land daintily tinted with the green of the springing grain, when our noble, disinterested friend left us, with explicit directions for finding his house. He assured us we should have hearty welcome if we would accept the hospitality of himself and wile lor the Highland that nothing but the fact that he must get in on schedule time would induce him to leave us. He gal-loped off; and the colt, very much better for the rest, was again put into harness. How we managed to lose the road and get off on an old disused wood Hack, I am not prr tared to say, but that is what we did do; s.nd the w irst of it was that it came to an end just as the day-lig-did at the foot ol a large field of newly planted wheat that had iust received generous irrigating; and our teamster did not discover it, until he had driven into it, and the wheels of the wagon were fairly embedded in the yielding soil. We stopped there. It was not from choice or because we thought it was a good place to camo.or because we were tired of traveling, but because we could not go any lurther. We all climbed out to look about; but might just as well have saved ourselves the trouble, for it was as datk as Erebus, and there was absolute-ly nothing to start a fire with. For ten or filteen minutes the situation was dis-cussed by the grown peoplejthe children happily for themselves and us, were Before the Advent of Eailroads. BY MRS. ELLEN JAKEMAN. Writtea tor the Kegistkr. Whenever I hear any body' talking about the beauties and regrettable of the good old stage days, I think of a trip it was my misfortune to take in company with several other miserable sinners. I dare not tell you everything just exactly as it was, and every body's name, and the dates because" and that's the reason why the verv best j ,kes never get into the papers they might hurt somebody's feelings. It was the lattrr part of April, and we had decided to leave the place lor good, and were anxiously awaiting the melting of the snow to start on our journey. The winter had been marked bv a vety great fall of snow, but spnng winds, and an unusually cloudless sun-ny April, had melted the snow in the valley, and niyhusband thought he might venture the start. Our out lit consisted of a middle aged, 'flea-bitte- n blond horse of a melancholy disposition and white eye lashes, and a newly broken gray colt that was nervous and energetic; a light wagon and a heavy load, of which myself and two little gills were an unconsidered portion; at least 1 thought so when upon attempting to And a seat the m lining we started, 1 iound the load had been an link-ed with an eve to the lawsof gravity rather than the comfurt ol passengers. It was built like a pyramid, and we were ex-pected to perch on the apex. We began our journey one alternoou, stopping for the night at the house of a friend who had a farm near a small town. We were received with open arms and treat-ed to the best the place afforded in the way of eatables, and our horses fairly smothered with hospitality in the shape u( sheal oats and lucern hay. They in-vited us to bring our bed into the house; and, as the domicile consisted of but one room, we put the supper table aside, made the bed on the floor, and slept the sleep of the just. Next morning afier an excellent breakfast, as we weie preparing to our host, who had absoluMy refused all remuneration, said if it would not be too much trouble, aud inconvenience to us, he would be glad to have his sister-in-la- go with us to our destination her home. Mv husband and 1 looked at each other in startled inquiry; but he promptly re-plied: "Certainly she can go; bow soon can she be ready?" After a consultation it was decided that it would take two hours to make the necessary arrange-ments. I quietly acquiesed, although I knew the addition to our load would make us less comfortable; lor their hearty welcome, and whole-soule- d gen-erosity had placed us at their mercy. Scarcely had this arrangement been made, when a bey rode up on a horse aud handed my husband a letter. It ran thus: Dear Brother I heard you were going to start lot B today. My mother-in-la- to here and want to go. If it is possible for you to talc, her, it will be a great favor to us. Also lam M ill, that I will have to ask you to Come back and get her. Yours Respectfully, , Oeorge C " He handed the letter to me without, woid,and I read it through. jrvVe absolutely can't take her, I said.''No;" asleep in the wagon. It is strange but true, that under such trying circumstan-ces it is the common impulse to blame somebody. I telt angry and abused, and i believe every body else did. At tbe end of our short and profitless talk, or rather the thing that brought it to an end, was the flashing and winking of a lantern uncertainly in the distance. Our teamster hallooed the light; there was an answer, and we had the unspeakable felicity of seeing it ap proach. There was a man strung onto one end of the light, who, as he neared us, swung his lantern alolt and sur-ttf-the scene, saying: "Well where do you think you aie anyhow?" We all began to tell him just how it happened, while he stalked around the wagon.exam-ine-d the team and the situation. .Then he came back to where we were stand-ing in a group, and said: "You're in a h II of a fix my friends." We silently assented. "If I may be allowed at) opin-ion," he continued, "you'd belter take that team off and all follow me to the house. Them horses u'd never pull it out, kingdom come." Tbe team was un-hitched and they, with our passengers followed our discoverer in a subdued procession; but the mired wagon held mv children, and I and the dog stayed by it. In less than ur the man, whose name was Hancock, reappeared, bringing a span of immense horsefs.which he hitched to our wagon; and it was soon pulled on to hard ground, and myself and children seated before a huge fire of pinion pine, whose warmth and fra-grance I was in a frame of mind to. fully enjoy. Our passengers, who were more cheerful under changed circumstances, also basked in its genial glow. Our hostess presently invited us to supper, and seemed so genuinely glad to have us, that a crust of bread would have been sweet with such a welcome. She had been in bed when her husband told her of the arrival of the mud-boun- d travel-ers; but without waiting to learn what j, nnSfm' lliU-rou- lu rather lose a twenty than refuse him the only favor he has ever asked of me." This George C had been most brotherly and kind to us during the months of our residence in the place, and when our lit-tle boy had died; and we had never been able to return the least of his favors. Now was the opportunity, ii it could be arranged. "I might leave part of my load," said mv husband, "though good-ness knows when I will ever come back for it." So it was decided that we should leave part ot our load in order to accommodate this dear friend' Be it known that tbe "stage line" was a "pony express;" as" an Irishman would say, and there was absolutely no otlief way for the lady to Teach B under the circumstances, but by some chance team. Mv husband unloaded his wagon, and went back for her and everything was put in order for an early slatt the next morning, for our road lay over one of the longest and steepest of the Wasatch water sheds that yield their liquids to the Colorado. The good by was hardly said when a carriage from town intercepted us An old acquaintance of mv husband's, with tear swollen face, leaned out and banded him a telegram to read, which apprised him VENGEN'CK IS MIKE.

Joseph Martin, the occupant of the claim whereon the grave is located, purchased . , the claim from the husband of the woman whose remains lie beneath that marble slab, and entered into an agreement with the former owner of the claim that the slab should not be molested by him, and the following story is from Martin's lips : "When I struck the Territory five years ago I looked around for a good place to lo- - cate. I started overland from Big Stone City to Watertown, and when I reached this point I came across a homesteader wtto had turned sod on this claim. 1 found him alone, apparently broken down from some cause or another. I told him I was looking for a place to locate, and ho offered me his claim. He Insisted that I take it for noth-ing. He'd been on it for two years and wanted to so back East He was a Virgin- - inn, and wanted to return to the Old Do ruin- - Ion. 1 flually agreed to take the claim, pro-- vMmg he'd accept a small amount in re-turn. He took me out to that grave on yon-der rise and told me hi ncret. "In 1870 he married a Virginia girl born near Roanoke. The wedding took place at Philadelphia during the centennial, and the summer waa spent in sight-seein- and a pleasant honeymoon. She waa the dauirh- - ter of a Mouth Carolinian, who, subsequent to the war, located 'in Maryland poorer by far than he was before the stars and stripe were fired on at Fort Bumter. Her maiden name was Nellie T. Pell, and the death of her father the year following her marriage wiped out the entire lot of her kin-ship. - "Cowlin and his bride came to the North-west and located here. While plowing one anting ha turned up some human bone. y No particular attention waa paid to them, V a he thought they were probably the 1 bone of some Indian, but with due rever-- enoe for humanity, Cowlin picked up the 1 bone from the furrow and rein terred them 1 below the plowshare'a searching; point. In removing the bones he noticed flnger-riu- g which had evidently been worn by the person whose bone he had discovered. After cleaning the dirt from the ring he noticed mark and letters thereon. The ring waa slipped on one of hi fingers, and be resumed hi plowing. At the dinner table bi wife noticed tbe ring, and he handed it to her for examination. Bhe took it, and in an instant turned dead-l- y pale and fainted. When she be " came conscious she inquired where he bad got the piece of jewelry, and be related the circumstances connected with its discovery. Hue gave way again and on recovering she explained the cause of her illness. The ring wu one pre nted ' by her to another suitor, a young college student to whom she had been betrothed. The symbols of a secret society to which he belonged were on the exterior of the ring, and 'N. T. P.,' her initials, to 'J. M. B.,' tbe j initial of hi name, John U. Sharer, were ' on the inside, engraved there by her order when she purchased It for Christmas present for him. "Cawlln argued with her that probably the ring bad passed into the hand of seme one eUe, but she believed otherwise. Bhafer had gone to the Northwest and had never been heard from, and tbe bone un-- j earthed by Cawlin were, in ber opinion, undoubtedly hi. Her old love for her first suitor returned. Bhe became ill through ' constantly haying her mind on the ring matter, and ber death followed. Bhe had requested before her death that her re-mains be Interred at tbe spot where tbe ring was found, and that her grave be marked by a stone bearing the words vou've read. - "After Cawlin went East," said M artin, "be sent that slab, and I placed It on tbe grave. Idon't know what became of him, or whether he ia alive yet, but the way in which he brooded over this affair 'led me to believe that it wouldn't be many year be-fore he'd need a gravestone, and one with an inscription similar tn hat one out there." - A.
