the most remote records of I lie while mini

little known.
Tlm territory over which the trlho roams
Is lictwcen the Itlo (iraiide ami Colorado
rivers, nnd along the valleys of the (Ilia
ami Titnl In weitcrn New Mexico and Arl
.(ilia. 'I'lie Navajos lend 11 nnmndlo life,
I, ill at periods stop to how and cultivate
cropsofnialc, Is-ans, pumpkins, etc. When
I hi harvest Is over they inovo 011 to neck
new scenes,
Many are rich, and have Hocks ami herds
that would grnco the ranches of while cat
tle and sheep liarons, while the thousands
of handsome horses owned hy the nils' are
the admliatlou of every visitor. To pur
chase an animal, however, necessitates
close bargaining, for the Navajos will al
low no one to cheat them If sharp dealing
can prevent It.
They differ widely In appearance from
the typical savage of the prairie. They are
lull, well formed, erect, nml have clear
nihil complexions. Tliclr hearing Is easy
and graceful, and they dress with comfort
A party of them visited hy the writer had
apparel that was actually handsome. The
women wort skirts that came below
the knees, while the men had long frocks
made of some bright material, buckskin
knee breeches and woolen stockings. In
the woolen goods the mosi brilliant colors
wero used, and I lie effect was most strik
ing. The women have all their white sis-
lets' love for llncry, and feathers dipped In
strong dyes manufactured hy them orna
mented their heads and scarfs. The men
had helmet shaped lulls similarly adorned,
and pre cuted the appearance of veritable
stage warriors.
The ohl Ahrahamle form of government
exists among the Navajos, The wealthi
est men arc chiefs, and have retainers, re
sembling the servitors of the feudal lords.
I'liu chiefs confer at times ami decide what
shall he done with the tribe's possessions,
Thn Navajos will no more touch or eat a
hog than will 11 .lew. It Is estimated that
they have now 011 their ranges il,lKN),UH)
sheep and tSl.OUO hordes, U'shlcs largo herds
of cattle. As there are less Hum KI.IHHI
of the raci! the wealth Is quite tvpoetnhlo.
They add to It constantly hy the sale of
the famous Navajo blankets, which all
tlm skill of tin white man has not Wen
able to duplicate. They art! so lluely woven
that water can he carried In them without
leaking, and the d)cs am of such a permit
uetit and brilliant iuallty that they sut
pass all others known, Tim dyes am made
and the blankets woven hy t lie women of
the tribe on peculiar looms of their own
devising, These show great mechanical
skill. They consist of three or four horizon
tal poles tied to saplings or upright stand
arils, while straight, slender strips of wood
or lent hern thongs reach to the ground.
The weaver squats before the loom and
titles her shuttle to and fro, around and
between the strips, forming the warp and
woof of the blanket. The d cs are made,
from certain plants and earth deposits
known only to the trllie.
The Navajos are, however, true Indians
as reganls treatment of their enemies.
They have 110 friendship with any other
trlls, and wnr upon the ahorli:iue.H of tho
southwest constantly. Once, when they
were fighting the Pueblos, they called a
peace council, and having gathered all the
I'ueblo chiefs In a canyon, fell upon them
.mil attempted to massacre the whole
party. The nlmblcncss of tho Intended
victims, who scaled the sides of the canyon
and escaped, f rust rated the design.
The Navajos are not experts with bow,
arrow or rille, their favorite weapon lelng
tho spear, which they throw with great
force and skill. They are line horsemen,
and the young men are fond of athletic
sports. Like tho old Greeks, they have
C Tfc.V.
a tv.M fun -i fir. srmiT la:i.
innuat com sts in wrestling, running, etc
Those am held every spring at tho full
moon, uml the participators gather from
all sift Ions of tho country over which thn
tribe roams. No prizes are given, it lieing
considered that the namo of Ising tho
winner Is reward enough.
All manner of odd superstitions run rifo
In their untutored minds. Tliclr prophets
pretend to receive from an old woman In
the skies communications which am given
to tho people with great ceremony, head
'todies are their especial abhorrence, and
every article of apparel which a departed
one possessed is destroyed If possible. Re
cently, in company with some army offi
cers, tho writer saw ono of their funerals.
It was an event to lie rcmcmlR'rcd.
Following a guide wo went across a piece
of valley woodland, and reached a pleasant
opening just as tho cortege entered It on
the other sido. Tho body was wrapped In
costly blankets, and rested nu poles also
covered with blankets. Depositing their
burden on tho cut branches of trees the
men took turns at digging 11 grave. When
it was done the body, blankets and all,
was lowered, and the mourners set up 1
quarter hour's howling and walling. Next
they placed In tho grave the unities It was
m'iiwi n.i. m-i Indian wouhinocdi..
MH ,,w. minim,; gnmnus, inciuiiiug 11
spear, part of 11 loom, some dyes, his hel
met and moccasins, alter which tlm grave
was llllcil up. Then a pure while pony
was brought out of tho woods. Huns and
arrows were pointed at his heart, and tho
next Instant he lay dead across the new
made mound, where he was left for the
future useof the departed chief. Finally
one of tho leading Indians made a division
of the dead man's propel ty.
Woman holds an exalted place among
tlm Ninajos, They Ih'IIcvo that a woman
places the sun In the heavens each morn
lug, while the stars are sprlukhd upon the
great blanket of the sky hy a woman's
hand. In strange variance with this Idea
Is tho out! that the moon Is carried on thn
hack of a burro, or mule, tlm long ears of
which the uicdliin men pretend to I hi
nhle to descry.
Their ceremonies are most Interesting,
That of moving Is mm religiously ol
served. The medicine mail takes from the
chief camp lire a burning brand, which Is
carried ahead nf tho travelers until a halt
Is called. .Should the brand Ini extlu
gulshcd they return to the original camp,
wheie they remain until Hie following
day. When a long Journey Is to be made
the imillclui! men hide wicks saturated
with oil In the brands, ami so present' tho
lire. I
In marriage the woman Is, so to speak, !
the best man. The, acceptance of a pony I
tied outside tlm squaw's wigwam Is a be
trothal, and at, the wedding (he bride and I
groom sll 011 opposite sides of a waterproof
basket llllcil with food, of which they par-1
take In the presence or the assemhlcii re
lations. Ilythls act they am made man
and wife. Tim marriage relation is not
very strictly observed, though only one
legal husband or wife can he had.

Old Mvxicau and Spanish nuthorltlcf cll
them tho Navajo Apaches, and them Is'
certainly u slight similarity in the Ian
guage. It Is, however, dllllcult to account!
for tliclr skill In mnniifm Hiring ami love'
of pastoral pursuits. They themselves 1m
lleve that they sprang from tho water
which lies 11 long distance north of their1
present homo, and that at death they will
return there.
Their worship is different from that of
any tribe In the west. It consists of In
cantations and solemn addresses to the sun
and moon, while tho high mountains have
an nwo Inspiring power. Above the snow
lino they do not go, as there Is to them
something mysterious In tho whiteness
that exists even when the plains below
am burning with lieat. The mirage, which
In the hot and dry air of Ari.ouaisso com
mon, Is to them a vision of the future lands
of bliss. The lakes anil green trees wllh
which the wonderful refractions always
abound are taken as promises of what the
('rent Spirit will give them in tho tradi
tionary northern paradise when their la
bors am over.
They am a most warlike people, and
have in the past given tho United State
government much trouble. They are too
sli rewd to Indulge In ghost dance nonsense,
but their frequent raids on New Mexican
hcttlers have made their name a terror. In
1870 Uncle Sam had to send some troops to
punish them for tho murder of a number
of people near Fort Dcllaucc. Six or eight
expeditious have been sent out at other
times to Arizona, and have succeeded In
dentroy lug thousands of sheep and cattle,
as well us crops, reducing portions of the
trilsi to the verge of starvation. Ketalia
t Ion has iieeu made by the nomads upon
tlio settlers when the troops were with
drawn; but one thing is to bu said In their
favor they never Hcalp their dead foes.
Of latu years 11 treaty has Ih'oii in forc
which has proved valuable, as the Nava
Jos are careful to keep their promises
Hut tho territory over which they roam ii
considered too largo for their numbers,
hence tho government Is endeavoring to ro
strict them still further.
Wants thft Ohl O Ulcers llxtlred.
The recommendation of Secretary Trncj
that provision Imj made for retiring naval
o libers when they reach a certain ago Is at
tracting general attention, Tlio secretary
points out that under tho present rules thu
day Is not far distant when the whole
grade of lieutenants will bo composed ot
men between tho ages of thlrty-soven nnd
fifty-four. They, of course, will have only
subordinate responsibility, although in
the prime of physical and intellectual
vigor, while their superiors will bo persons
far advanced toward old ago. It is for this
reason that Mr. Tracy suggests a change
in tho regulations. He wants to seo
younger men till thu ranks now occupied
by the graybeanls.

In a Id' irlous mood a tall man with a1
theatric makeup entered the poHtolllco. !
It was inrly morning nml the corridors I
wcru almost, deserted. As hu slowly passed,
th-ougli the building 011 Hie ground lloor
lie gave evidence that ho was or had lieen
n shunter for tlm side show of a circus.
There was mischief In his eye as ho
glanced toward a window behind which a '
clerk sat. '
"In this cage," ho exclaimed In deep, 1
sonorous tones, as If addressing an
audience of curious and expectant people, I
"you will Hud that melancholy licast thu

laughs and laughs and laughs, but what

"Pass along, lutsHnlong, but do not press
against tho ropes, You have ample time
to view all the curiosities before the great
show begins."
Scores of clerks, attracted by the un
usual noise, hurried to the little windows
and poked out their heads. This pleas.-d
thn tall man Immensely and ho laughed
"In the next cage," resumed tho orator I
ns) liu proceeded on Ids way, "Is tlm farl

from peak to peak ami skips from crag to

cry, Mlaat haul'"
Vlien another heail wits thrust out of an
opening, andthutall man, with aswcepliiB
wave of the hand said, "Thank you, sir,
that will do."
"In tho next cage," continued tho mirth
ful man, "you will perceive the gigantic

Gradually tho tall humorist made his
way around tho corridors, Ids voice losing
none of Its voliimoor strength. .Meanwhile
the commotion In the postolllcoilemrtment I
was Increasing, l-.very winnow was occu-1
pled by 0110 or mom clerks, with bulging
eyes and necks craned to catch a glimpse .
of tho daring, practical Joker. Everybody!
had 11 chaiicutosco him, for Ik? did uotdeuy 1

groun heard as ho cutun Into view:

Hy that time tho loungers in tho build ,
lug wero enjoying tho sport highly, but
how tho clerks felt Is not known.
As tho stranger iieiircd tho last door at ,
the upper end of tlio Hroadway side ho
turned towanl another "cage" and ex
"In the next cage you will sue Old Tom
feeding the Polar hear his dally meal of

At that moment tho watchman made, his
presencu known, and the Joker was forced
to cease Joking; but us he wont out of tho
door he 1 1 red this shot, which wasev: lently
intended to hit t lie watchman:
"Little Jocko will now ascend thu ladder,
turning n complete somersault at each and
