Mrs. Sophie DavydoS, who has pub

volume entitled "Russian Lace and

Russia collecting and inspecting laces,

the emancipation. Lace-making was
revived as an Industry In the found
ing by her of the Mary school for
lace-making under the patronage of
the empress dowager, in that school
ittle peasant girls are lodged, fed and
taught the elementary branches of
earning, drawing aad designing for
two years. At the end of that time
they are Intrusted with the weaving
of the finest laces, even those sown
with seed pearl, and are expected on
their graduation to go home and teach
what tbey have learned to the women
of their districts. Mrs. DavydoS has
been sent by the government to Bok
hara, central Asia, and France on spe
cial missions connected with art in
dortries, and In 1&92, at the command
f the government, organized schools
for weaving, lace-making and em

for years, but last year the govern
merit, in response to the deluge of let
ters with which the minister of agri
culture was peetered, letters from own-
era of estate, asking for women train
ed In agriculture, engaged Baroness
Budberg to open an agricultural school

has two courses, one for the unedu
cated elass, which begins with an ele
mentary training in the common
branches of day schools, and the other
for the educated class.
Indian . character has been greatly
maligned, says Maj. John M. Burke,
who has made a study of the red men.
Treachery, ; so often charged against
them, has no part in their make-up.
The Indian has fought the man who
mistreated him, and he has always
fought openly. He has been the
friend the unfailing friend of the
man who has been kind to him, and
as given evidence that he wished to
help him. The Indian was the friend
of .Pere Marquette and Father De
Smet. The man who has shown him
a "forked tongue" he has treated as
he would any other snake. The man
who has cheated him, has taken ad
vantage of his ignorance to make his
hard lot harder, he has killed. The
Indian is a child of nature, and he Is
therefore candid and Ingenuous. When
wronged he knows It, and says so, and
his only way to get satisfaction is to
fight. There Is no chance for. him to
lay low" and wait for another deal.
He . can only see what is in sight.
When Columbus came to America the
Indians were at first alarmed at the
great white-winged birds" the ships.
The white-faced, strangely-dressed
people who came out of them were to
the simple natives supernatural be
ings. But when they saw that those
were people who were hungry and
could eat then the Indians brought
the best they had and gave It freely
for nothing, and were as kindly as
well-raised children. When the cruel
Spaniards beat them and misused
them, the Indians naturally enough be
lieved that all white men were cruel
and dangerous. Cortez In Mexico and
Pizarro In Peru found the aborigines
a gentle people, but that did not de
crease the relentless cruelty that al
ways grow3 out of lust for gold, and
so, for centuries, wiyi all their con
tinuous generations, the Indian was
taught that the white man was his
heartless enemy; and he accepted the
lessons. There was no way to teach
him that not all white men were
greedy and cruel. Vice will go much
further to assert itself than virtue.
But, coming down to this very day.
the unsophisticated red man of the
west, hating a liar, tells the truth;
having been surrounded, the game
killed exterminated uselessly he has
no way to get a living and thinks it
only natural that the government
which took away his opportunities for
sustenance owes him food and raiment.
The rovernment sava it does, and
sends agents to look after and provide
for him. Some of the agents former
ly accepted their places with the be
lief that they had a right to rob the
very class that they were appointed to
protect. Of course, not all t Indian
agents were this way, but many of
them were, and the Indian was blamed
because he refused to be treated with
the injustice that came from greed
the most cruel of all Injustice and he
grumbled and fought. The Indian is
supposed to be selfish and brutal by
those who do not know him. There Is
no human being on earth who will
more quickly divide his last mouthful
of food with a friend.. No Indian that
ever lived would crowd a white-haired
old woman out of the way to get on a
street car first. That sort of thing,
and everything akin to it, that Is dis
courteous, may be seen among the men
of the streets of all cities. Real men
do not do such thing3f no more than
all Indians do beastly things than
those who do not know them suppose
they do. The Indian has not had the
benefit of laundries and porcelain
baths, but he jumps into the water and
washes himself every time he has a
chance. He does not live where there
are napkins and finger bowls, and he
would not know exactly which curious
little fork to use for this or that, nor
the precise manner In which he should
carry a spoonful of soup to his mouth.
He has not been taught these things.
Neither does he guage his neighbor's
respectability by the number of po
nies the neighbor possesses, nor does
he He awake of nights thinking over
schemes to win his neighbor's goods.
He thinks that one who is able to pay
and does not do so is a worse man
than he who is not able to pay. He
does not say to the former, "He Is all
right because he has money, though he
does not pay Just debts nor practice
deeds of charity."

St. Regis, on the St. Lawrence river.
The bell In that church, says the Nor

Indian Invasion of that place, and, it
is said, was suspended on a pole and
carried on the shoulders of the Indians
through the wilderness to the place
where it now hangs. It was originally
purchased In France by the Church of
St. Regis, and the vessel In which It
was being taken to Quebec was cap

Into the port of Salem. The bell, as a

Electricity I Fatal to Plant Life mm
Park and BelcTra.
Boston Globe: A distinguished bot
anist In speaking of plant life in our
cities and in local parks argues that
it is under ever increasing peril con
stantly and Is liable to finally become
extinct. In the first place, there Is
the matter of noise in all its forms and
the vibratory rumblings which go with
the various activities of an augmented
population. Flowers need sleep. Trees
sleep.. All forms of vegetable life
must, at regularly recurring Intervals,
be allowed to lapse Into a condition
of repose else some radical change will
take place in the form of the plant.
But noise Is not the only destroyer of
plant life in cities. There are many
other things that threaten to denude
the cities of vegetation finally. Plants
and flowers and ail kinds of vegeta
tion sleep beat away from the glare.
So the lights of the city, which blind
all through the night, must contribute
somewhat to this interference with
vegetable sleep. Dust and smoke and
other things that fill the air unques
tionably have considerable Influence
on veeetation In the cities. Electricity,
Independent of its uses for lighting
mimeses, has a bad effect On city vege
tation. The overcharged condition of
the earth because of the electrical cur
rents that are constantly finding their
lira v back to the point of generation
cannot be healthy from a viewpoint of.
vegetation. The construction of large
buildings .' interferes, too, with ths
natural flow of air currents and the
plants tf a city are In a measure
smothered. 1 But the same electricity
v.o KntAnista tell us is sradually
biacav vv w - . -
destroying tree life in the cities Is
transporting the people far out Into
ftountrr cheaply and rapidly.
There Is compensation, after all, in ths
t.n.notte that make civilization a
failure to pessimistic eyes.
