A HISTORIC FIGHT.
The Mlsslaslnevra River In Indiana
Was Ihe been of an aCarly
llatlle Willi the Indiana.
j It is known to but comparatively few
people that the Mississinewa river
; which runs through Indiana i as once
the scene of a fierce battle between
the whites and the ludiun suiages.
j The stream funs through wild country
for a great deal of lis course and along
its bunks ia many places nestle the
cottages of the artists. Some of the
best lundscape paintings that have
bceu shown iu all exhibitions of the va-
rious large cities were executed from
scenes along the bunks of the stream.
j I'oets huve raved over the placid little
body of water and many are Ibe
stories tbut huve been written about
Following the course of the riverfront
Million about seven miles up the
stream and stopping near the old tuin-ble-down
Conner's mill the wanderer
will find himself on the MissisMuewa
battlefield. It is a quiet enough pluce
now. Only the calls of the wild birds
or the occasional crack of the hunt-
er's rifle breaks the almost monotonous
stillness of the pluce. It can scarcely
be conceived that on the 17th day of
December in the year 1S12 a bloody
battle was here fought. The fight took
piace between Lieut. John It. Camp-
bell's Nineteenth regiment of cavalry
and the Miami.
A distant relative of Gen. William
Henry llurrit-on now has in his posses-
sion the official report of that battle
as tent to the general by Lieut. Camp-
bell lielow it is given terbatim:
"Karly in the morning of the 7th 1
reached iiiidit covered on Indian town
on the Missis.-inew a inhabited by a
number of Delawarcs and Miniuis. The
j troops rushed into the town killed
j eight warriors took 41; prisoners eight
I .! whom ure warriors and the residue
women and children. 1 ordered the
town to be burned immediately with
the exception of a house or two jn
which 1 cunlined the prisoners. Wliiie !
we were in council however and about !
half an hour before dawn on the 18th
which was the next day after the fight
we were most fiercely attacked by a
large body of Indians their onslaught
beir.g accompanied by a most hidous
yell. L'very man of our brave troops
rushed to his post with all dispatch.
The enemy boldly advanced to within
u few yards of the line causing the
guards which we had placed at the
different redoubts to retreat into camp
and disperse nmorg their several com-
panies. The redoubt w hich Capt. Tierce
commanded was first attacked. He
received two balls through the body
M.d was tomahawked. The enemy then
took possession of Capt. 1'ierce's re
doubt and poured a tremendous fire I
upon the angle to the right and left
of which were posted the troops of
G'-nird and Hopkins. Hut the fire was
us warmly returned and not an inch
.. I.. .w...l . .;.!.!...! Tl.n an.
emy then moved iu force against the
left of the squadron and right of the
infantry where Capts. Markle and Ll-
licit's companies were poited. Here
again they were warmly received.
"At this time !u light began to
dawn. I now ordered Capt. Trotter
whose troops had been commanded by
Col. Simrall to mount for the purpose
'o make a charge. The captain cried
for his men to follow him and they
dashed oil at full gallop. Maj. Mc-
Lowell with a small party rushed into
the very midst of the enemy Capt.
Markle with about 15 ol his troops
and Lieut. Waring also made a daring
charge. Capt. Murkle avenged tbe
death of his relative Lieut. Waltz upon
nn Indian with his owu sword. Hy this
time the cavalry returned mid informed
me that tbe enemy had fled precipi-
tately." The battle lasted about one hour and
resulted in a loss to tbe w hites of about
eight killed and 42 wounded. Fifteen
Indians were found dead upon the
battlegrouud.and it is thought as many
more had been curried away dead or
mortally wounded. The Indian forces
numbered 300 and the forces of the
whiles consisted of 600 veterans. A
strange coincidence is noticeable in the
account of this battle. On the 17th
the Indians lost eight killed and find
43 taken prisoners and on the 18th tbe
less and captures among the whites
were exactly the same figures. Mun-

VENUS AND ITS MYSTERIES.
Questions Heaardlnar (ho riant
Which Astronomers Are to-
able to Answer.
The most beautiful planet and tbe
one that comes nearest to the earth
and most resembles the earth in size is
at the same time the most mysterious.
Is Venus a living world or a dea l one?
That is to say is it in a condition to
support inhabitants and is it prubabie
that such inhabitants are there or on
tbe other band is it unsuited for their
presence and barren of living forms?
These questions astronomers at pres-
ent are unable to answer but their ef-
forts to answer them and the observa-
tions that they have made of the mys-
terious planet possess an almost start-
First let us briefly recall what Venus
is. It is a globe like our earth and of
very nearly the same magnitude hat-
ing a diameter of aboui 7700 miles
while that of the earth is a little more
than 7y00 miles. So nearly of th? sams
size are the two planets that if we could
view them from an equal distance we
should be unable without tbe aid of in-
struments of measurement to detect
any difference between them. The
substance of Venus is slightly lighter
bulk for bulk than that which com-
poses the earth; but the differetce in
this respect is so little that again it-
would require special examination to
distinguish by weight between a cubic
foot of the soil of Venus and au equal
auount of the soil of the f nrth. It fol-
lows that on Venus the force of gravita-
tion or the weight of bodies does not
differ greatly from that on the earth.
If wc could step upon Venus we should
find that we had parted with a few
pounds weight but ths difftrenee
would not be very noticeable except !
perhaps on the race track
But this planet so like the earth in
many respects is different from our
globe in its situation. Tbe earth's dis-
tance from the sun is D3.(HM)000 miles;
the distance of Venus frjm the sun is
07.000000 miles. This difference be-
comes a matter of great importance
when we consider the effects which the
sun produces upon the two planets.
Heat and light. aseverybody know s.varv
inversely as the square of the distance.
When we compare the earth's distance
from the suu with the square of Venus'
distance we find that the former is
about double the latter. This means
that Venus on the average gets twice
as much heat and light from the sur.
as the earth gets.
Hut on the other hand we know that
all forms of life depend for their exist-
ence upon the radiant energy if the
sun. On the earth when we pass from
the arctic regions toward the equator
we find the number of living forms and
the variety and intensity of the mani-
festations of life continually increas-
ing until in the equatoriii zone earth
sea and air are all crowded with an-
imate and growing thing.. The touch
of the sun everywhere produces life
and the absence of sunshine is death.
It is but natural to infer that Venus
having twice as much sunshine as the
earth should be proportionately more
crowded with animal and vegetable in-
habitants and that the intensity of life
there should be correspondingly great-
er. Some geologists have thought that
there was a time when the climate of
the earth was so hot that tropical plants
and beasts lived abundant! around the
poles. A similar condition of things
might be supposed now to prevail upon
Venus. Harper's Hound Table.
Kleilint:t Die Alone.
The opinion is widely held in Indi:.
that elephants when th-.'y feel that
death is near retire to the secret place
in the jungle where they die far from
the sight of man. Thus is explained the
fact so often cited that the skeleton.?
of elephants are almost never met with
except those killed by hunters. The le-
gend is certainly an interesting one.
but it must probably be rejected. An
English hunter has discovered the skel-
etons of elephants dead from disease
in pluces thnt were not particularly se-
cret and a hunter during several con-
secutive years has observed the same
skeleton and has been surprised at the.
rapidity with which it has decayed and
disappeared under the influence of ex-
terior conditions. The truth seems to
be that the reason why so few elephant
skeletons are found is that they are so
quickly destroyed by atmospheric and
other conditions. Cosmos.
