Fifteen years later it was found by the wife of a squatter in a hollow tree, and as it was all iu gold none of it had suffered from exposure In the weather. The police insisted that I had given the outlaw aid, and they made me considerable trouble over the affair. This was of benefit to me in the end, however.

The fifth had dashed their lines on horseback and night, I heard them singing and shouting.

Ilnlf an tour later a man in rough clothes rode up and asked for a cup of coffee, and after a bit I recognized him as the nolieeaan. It was "(Big George" him- 'elf and that was te way he took to test me.

Aer | awhile three Of the gang were killed] while attacking a farmhouse 20 miles] avmy; two others were captured in earap after being wounded, and one "Big George" aroused me from say that he was the last of the and had a bullet in his shoulder wanted*my assistance. To the west of my hut was a deep I had explored to find a t in case I was ever run off I descended into it a4th the outlaw, fixed up sheler and made a bit of fire for him, then attended to his wound and hint some food.

They knew the man me np to a limb to teach me a lesson in humility. When they rode away they left me half dead and fie%co for re- venge, and from that hour all the money in Australia could not have tempted me to betray a bushrangcr. Unknown to any of ns, an outlaw md been concealed in the ravine during the "performance," and when the police disappeared he came out and had a few kind words to say and assisted me to round up my scattered flock. Next day "Black Bill" appeared in person and handed me a handsome gold watch and 50 in gold To have refused his gifts would have been to insult him. The money I retained and made use of, but a year later I restored the watch to a lawyer from whom i;t had been taken. The end of the gang came about through its betrayal by one of its member. He led the police into camp at midnight, and the sounds of the bat- tle %;hich followed awoke me from sleep. Three policemen were kilted and two wounded, and two bush- angers were killed and all the rest captured and duly executed. 'the "Red Knight" wa the cavalier nf all bushrangers. His name was George McKnight, and he was the son of an English gentleman and a gentle- man himself, lie had been transported for embezzlement and assault but after serving for three yearn had escaped and taken to the bush. He had with him at that time five men, none of whom were of the ruffianly type, though full of courage nnd ready to take desperate chances. The locality had been clear of outlaws for weeks when this gang arrived, and they not only made headquarters in the ravine spoken 0f, btt had been there two days before I got ono the flrct. O:e morn- ing the neigh of a horse and the sight ol smoke aroused my suspicions, but I made m investigation. At about noonday t&e "Red Knight came walk- ing np. to me as I sat in the shade of a tree. He was a dapper little feIlow, dressed in clothes which might almost b called fashionable, and on his curly t headwas a unty ha,t with a dropping red plume. He had a frank, open tace. a merry blue eye, and vva the last man you would have suspected of bei,ng a robber and worse. "Well, old man, what's thee price of wool to-day?" he laughingly queried, WOODVILLE, MISS., SATURDAY, APRIL 16, 1898. 1 me for a moment with serious face and then said: "I am sure I can trust you. To-nlgh I shall bring you the plunder I have been saving for months, and you will bury it in your hut. If I call for it you will give it up; if I am kilh:d or cap- tured it will be yours." I made a igorous protesi, feeling that I would be giving "aid and as- sistance," but in the end agreed to do as he wished. That nigqt he brought me gold and note to the amount ot 4,000 and I dug a hole in the center of the earthen floor and carefully cov- ered in the treasure. From the rvine the band made forays in every direc- tion, sometimes stri'king a point 00 miles away and beAng absent for three or four days After awhile the police set a trap for them and two were killed. Later on a third received a bullet in the head while making a raid on the highway, and after that the hunt becam so hot that the res of the band were somewhat intimidated. On two occasions I was visited by the police as they were out in pursuit, and on bot,h of those occasions the out- laws were "at home" and a wlnk from me would have resulted in their cap- ture. The end came one night when they stopped a stage coach. It was full of police, with others on horse- back behind, and the "Red Knight" had scarcely cried halt when n volley wiped the gang off the face of the earth, tie had never called for his money, and it was mine Perhaps the honest way was to turn it over to the government, but I did not do it.

'rhe average person may take for breakfast a sub-acid fruit, such us raw, baked, steamed or stewed apple, a ripe peach, a bunch of grapes or a very soft pear," writes Mrs. S. T. Rorer, on "What Indigestion Really Mean.s," in the Ladies' Ifome Journal. "Thin may beYfoliowed by a bowl of well-cooked erc'fl with a little milk, a slice ox whole wheat bread, and, if he has been accustomed to it, a cup of clear cof- fee, one-half heated milk. :No other food is actually necessary--in fact, one might be better off with even a lighter meal. The heavy breakfast, quickly end carelessly eaten by the average family, brings about such diseases as come to the over-eaters--rimumntism, gout, uric acid conditions and Bright's disease. "The noonday meal should be light, unless two hours' rest can be taken. It may consist of a cream soup, two or three slices of whole wheat bread and butter, any little light minced meat, and again fruit. This meal may be closed with a rice pudding, a cup cus- tard or some simple d$ssert made principally from eggs and milk, rice and milk, or whipped cream. The ight meal, after the day's work is over, should for its first course have a perfectly clear soup, either plain consomme or a bouillon made entirely from vegetable matter, or a clear, light tomato soup; the idea Is to warm and stimulate the stomach without giving ztourishment. Follow this with a red meat, either beef or mutton, broiled, roasted or boiled; one starchy veg- etable, as rice, macaroni, potato, or in the winter, boiled chestnuts; one green vegetable, as carefully cooked cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, asparagus, green peas or beans, stewed cucumbers or squash, acording to the season of the dEWELED LEAF BELT.
