We were camped at the Hoi SprinKH
on the Lo Lo trail, made famous in In
dian annals by the escape of Chief Jo
t lh and his band of Nez Perces. Just
above us was a largo camp of Flatheads
who were making thir fall hunt. One
morning wo were awakened by shout
and cries. Evidently there was groat
excitement somewhere, and we promptly
juinied up. It was jnst after daylight
and cold clouds of steam were rising
from the bit basin shaped iool at the
foot of tlio granite wall, from which
IKured a thick stream of boiling water.
The pool was so large that at the lower
edge the water was almost cold. The
nearer you approached to the place
where the water burst from the rock the
better chance you stood of getting boiled.
At the edge, at a point where the water
was of a comfortable temperature, stood
two Indians, one on the bank and the
other on a stone in the water. Near by
were a dozen other Indians guarding a
cumber of little Indian boys and girls
who had nothing on and were howling
When we looked out of the tent the
two Indians at the pool had an Indian
boy, one holding him by the feet the
other by the hands, and were gravely
swinging him backward and forward
through the warm water, while he yelled
at every dip. As soon as they had fin:
ished with him he was set upon the bank,
and ran to the willow brush near by.
Then the noise redoubled, for eaek
child in the group guarded by the In
dians feared that it was his turn. They
all tried to escape to the "brush, but their
elders pursued and caught them, untL
the very last one had been put through
the cleansing process. New York Sun.
Big; Field Gnni and Their Effect.
If you insist on high velocity you have
to add so much additional machinery to
your gun carriage and have to so greatly
strengthen its construction that you
Jijstroy its mobility, while even if you
gain a long range you are still unable to
make use of your most efficient projec
tile at it. Moreover, since the remain
ing velocity of its shrapnel is a truer
measure of the value of a gun than its
initial velocity, and the two are by no
means directly proportional, it does not
follow that we benefit as much as we
might expect by submitting to these
disadvantages. Thus, the 12-pounder
has an initial velocity of over 1,700 feet
per second and a remaining velocity at
3,000 yards of 803 feet; while the
lo-pounder, with an initial velocity of
only 1,500 feet, has at the same range a
remaining velocity greater by six feet
per second than that of its rival.
One of our highest authorities on field
artillery has, indeed, recorded his opin
ion, that, as regards the efficiency or
shrapnel, we gain nothing by the in
creased muzzle velocity of "the best field
gun in Europe" at all practical ranges.
Moreover, it is the attempt to squeeze
out the last few extra feet that does all
the harm. London Saturday Review.
With all its novel modern powers and
practical sense I am forced to admit that
the purely scientific brain is miserably
mechanical; it seems to have become a
splendid sort of self directed machine,
an incredible automaton, grinding on
with its analysis or constructions. But
for pure sentiment, for all that spon
taneous Greek waywardness of fancy,
for the temperature of passion and the
subtler thrill of ideality, you might as
well look to a wrought iron derrick.
Science found education blundering
peacefully along, cultivating half of the
mind with charming results and letting
the other die of disuse; it worked the
startling miracle of electrifying this
dead half into life and bringing it to
perfect activity, and straightway, satis
fied with this remarkable achievement,
it proceeded to neglect the ideal half
which the classics had made so much of
and caused it to perish. It has substi
tuted a new sort of half man for the old
one. Clarence King in Forum.
Skill in the Wrist.
It is wonderful what a part the wrist
plays in exercises in which physical 6kill
and delicacy are required. After a map
learns to play billiards well enough to
be familiar with the cushions and the
English, the important thing to cultivate
is his stroke. It is the hardest thing
about billiard playing to get a good
Btroke, and sometimes the greatest play
ers "fall down" because they lose con-
trol of it. Now. the stroke whollv de
pends on the action of the wrist. Jake
Schaeffer, or any good player, will make
a shot of seven cushions with less ap
parent force than a beginner will exert
in getting three. This is due to the su
perior wrist movement. .
It's the same way with violin playing.
The quality and touch all depend on
wrist manipulation. So with curving a
baseball. Great pitchers always work a
strong wrist movement on the ball as it
leaves the hand. If they didn't it
wouldn't curve at all. St. Louis Globe

Beatlag the Earth.
The highest velocity ever given to a
cannon ball is estimated at a mile in 3.2
seconds. The velocity of the earth at
the equator, due to its rotation on its
axis, is a mile in 3.6 seconds. There
fore, if a cannon ball were fired due
west, and could maintain its initial
velocity, it would beat the" sun in his ap
parent journey around the earth. New
Soeiety la Creed.
! That there is a strong and distinct
' social caste in Creede, despite the prac
i tical democratic conduct of the masses
in their business intercourse, was lumi
nously exemplified by au event of no in
considerable proitortious at the Drainard
& Dt-bee hotel on the evening of Feb.
22. It was the initial hop given by the
fire company in commemoration of
Washington's birthday. Tickets ot .sd
mission were issued, and the closest vig:
lance was kept on those to whom tickets
were given, lest some improjicr charac
ters would gain admission to the dancing
hall, which was the hotel dining room.
There were present fifty-three ladies and
about four times as many men. All the
ladies were dressed in handsome ball
costumes, and the decollete gown was
' there in force. The men or a great
many of them wore the conventional
, swallow tail broadcloth.
The programme contained all the latest
! fashionable dances, round and square
' and they were executed with an ease
and grace that would do credit to St.
; Louis. A fine Italian orchestra fur
' nished the music and the hotel people
gave a spread that was a marvel of com
pleteness. The cards were handsomely
embossed, and premiums are being of
fered for them by people who were not
' there, to treasure them as souvenirs of
the first ball in Creede. Cor. St. Louis

A very happy family reunion occurred
jix miles west of Muncie a few days
since at the home of Mr. and Mrs. E. R.
For over thirty years a member of the
family has been mourned as dead, but
Wednesday he made a happy surprise to
bis old parents and friends with his
. presence. Jrnest, tne omest son, a iaa
of sixteen, ran away from home in 1859,
going to Minnesota, where he remained
until 1863, when he enlisted in the civil
war and remained until the close, when
he joined the regular army under com
mand of that gallant general, Custer.
Nothing was ever heard of the young
man until his name was by mistake
placed in the list of killed in the great
massacre at Little Big Horn.
The young man was severely injured
in the fight, but recovered and lives to
once more enter his home, where ho
will remain. Ernest well remembers
the famous Indian fight, and relates the
horrible spectacle he witnessed in a
! manner that chills a person's blood.

Sunday la the Proper Word.
At the town meeting in Sharon the
much discussed question whether Sunday
or Sabbath was the proper term to use
fras decided and the matter is no longer
in doubt. A motion that the constables
be authorized to enforce the laws against
hunting and fishing on the Sabbath was
made, and an amendment was made
that the word Sunday should be substi
tuted for Sabbath. This caused a heated
discussion of nearly an hour, in which
many took part. The amendment was
carried by a small majority and the word
Sabbath was changed to Sunday, and
the motion as amended was carried.
Damages for Grief.
A new cause has arisen for a lawsuit.
A woman in France was notified by the
authorities of a lunatic asylum of her
brother's death. She went to the fu
neral and ordered a handsome tomb
stone. Her mother was so grieved at
her son's death that the plaintiff had tc
give up her situation to take care of her.
Then she learned that the directors of
the asylum had made a mistake, and
that her brother was alive. After un
successful efforts for compensation she
has gone to he court, claiming heavy
damages for grief and injury. New
An Indignant Tlurglar.
On a recent morning about 3 o'clock
a burglar visited Johnston's drug store,
corner of Tenth and O streets, and in
stead of entering through the regularly
provided doorway after ringing the
night bell, he climbed over the transom
and was about to help himself, when his
noise aroused the clerk, who threw his
boot at the intruder. "You've got a
cheek to throw your boot at me," was
the remark of the burglar, who said
"Good night" and departed. Washing
