A Barbarous Indian Custom.
DriATir. Slinn., November 30. ADuluth
pine-land cxplonr recently returned from
a trip through northern Michigan and
Wisconsin reports a curious custom
among the Indians which has been recent
ly resurrected. While at a place called
Uirteatseru, meaning "being where Cari
bou die," near Portage Lake, he came
across the entirely nude bodies of three
Indian girls hanging lifeless from the
branches of a tree. The Indian guide
! and hunter then told him a remarkable
story of the events in connection wit
tht-se .vounir souaws. The Indians of
Birteatserus, fearing removal to White
Earth Reservation, decided to try and
evoke the bussing of the Great Spirit,
and brought forth the old custom which
has Ions been fortrotten. Three of the
prettiest Iudi'in girls in the band of Chip
pewas were t ;en invited to a feast, anc"
after receiving the attention and decora
tion of all assembled, were invited to
partake of a draught of liquid whicl
had been prepared by the medicine man
of the tribe. Without any knowledge
of tho deadly nature of the liquid they
drank, ami in a few mi a utes were beyond
hu:r: !ii assistance. For three days and
nights the Indians tlun held a weird and
exeit'::g s vrviees over the corpwF, and

MOST MUST CO TO PRISON.
The Blatherskite Anarchist Con
victed of Incltlngto Riot.
Xkw Yoiik, Nov. 30. When the trial of
Most wan resumed yesterday morning li
defendant was called to the witness stand
to testify in his own behalf. He denied
that he had uttered the incendiary words
attributed to him in his speech. Most
Hd'td he was a communistic anarchist.
"We do not light against any particular
government" siid hu. "We do not es
pecially light the government ot the
United States; we are opposed to govern
ment as such; we think that the power
held by the government should be
abolished. Wc do not expect capital
istic classes will give up what thy pos
sess peaceably. There will be tierce
fighting on both sides."
"Houibs and dynamite?" asked Xicoll.
"Yes, on both sides."
"Your idea is to conquer peaceably if
you can, by force if you must?"
"Wc believe force will be necessary in
Xicoll asked Most as to his belief in
a supreme being, and Howe objected.
"Do you believe in the existence of a
supreme being who punishes those who
give false, testimony in court?" was re
peated by Mr. Xicoll and objected to by
Answer I do not.
On cross examination Most gave a
brief record of his past lif.?, stating his
erms of imprisonment at various times
in Austria, Germany and England. The
witness admitted having written several
books which were namzd but a wr.uigle
ictween the lawyers ensued when he was
asked if he had written a book called "The
Art of Revolutionary Warfare," or a
book on dynamite and other explosives.
He refused to answer on the ground that
the answer would tend to crimin itu him.
He also declined to answer whether he
believed modern explosives were neces-
asy to carry out his ideas, or whether he
advised others as to the manufacture and
using of explosives as laid down in tin
book above named. The witness grew
greatly exciteel when the questions were
asked and declined to answer each on
the same ground. The judge, in each
. i rn -
case, auoweti rue question. ui usi-
cution offered in evidedce the previous
indictment of Most and the record of his
trial and conviction to show that the
books in question were not introduced in
evidence on Most's trial. Howe objected
saying it had been introduced and exelu-
ded. Most said Recorder Smyth had
bitterly referred to it and had really
sentenced him on it. Judge Cowing in
his charge told the jury that Most was
not to be tried for his past life nor for
his belief, but for his speech in Kraemer's
"Free speech," said he, "does not mean
that an individual has a right to slander
his neighbor or to incite to liot. We
throw open our gates to all to come in
and enjoy citizenship, which we esteem
a greater privilege than to be a king.
We marvel that in this country, where
every one is so free, there could be such
men as anarchists, and ask, What more
do they want? Revolutions have come
from injustice, but never from justice."
After going over the testimony care
fully he said he failed to linel anything
in the speech of Most, as he gave it at
the trial, that came within tha statute
The jury went out at 5:30 and reiurneel
at 10 last evening with a verdict of guilty.
Monelay was fixed as the elay for the
motion for a new trial. Livwver Howe
said the books which Most had written
and which were improperly brought in
by Nicoll hael caused the verdict.

diet One Another.
Sioux City, la., Xov. 20. The morn
ing session of the court was was occupied
by the defense in the Haeldock murder
cas with examination of witnesses to es

the wi nesses.
The elay was largely occupied by elc
fense with esamining witnesses who tes

Heredity of Cooil Habits.
The common e-oneent ion of our relation to
our ancestors goes no further than a general
apprehension that we can inherit their vices.
I am glail that it begins to enter into soci-d
motives as a power, that as we are so wiil
our children be. But I desir? to emphasis
tho brighter side of the fact. It is not niy
true that a drv.nkaril"s children are liable; t-j
inherit a taste for intoxicants, and a rake's
for unehastity; not only that oddities f
structure, such as web toes or a Hapsburg
nose, are passetl down in a family line, but :t
is even more strouglj- true that all soils -t
good habits can be inherited, and the beauty
of a noble thought can be transmitted intc
the filatures of a child. lr a homely es

Yes; but the bias is the other way. It is a
drift in his blood to do the square thing.
A Yankee cannot sit still. He is bewitched
by ten generations of grandmothers that
never were idle while awake. He twite-hes
and tilts his chair, and moves about and
whittles when he is stillest. That's the spin
ning wheel, and knitting needles, and darn
ing needles and carding combs that are in
bi.s makeup. It's an extreme overdone case
of industry. When a wheel goes too fast it
gets on fire in spite of lubricating oil. That's
tho way with these Yankees. They finally
inhi-rit a bonfire and go to ashes. But it
illustrates what I mean a man inherits in
dustry, honor, good taste, common sense, as,
much as he doss deviltry and consumption.!
