THE ISLE OF SKULLS
About eighty miles off the coast- of
Ventura county, California, lies the
low, sandy island of San Nicolas an
island about ten miles long by four
miles in width, and an island with a
On this bleak and desolate island
no trees or shubbery of any kind are
to be found, although evidence re
mains that at one time the island
was well wooded. A species of ice
plant and alfileria grow somewhat
luxuriantly on certain portions of
.the island, and an enterprising Yan
kee pastures a large flock of sheep
upon it, but he cannot, rightfully lay
.claim to any part of the island, as it
is included within the boundaries of
Ventura county and is reserved by
the government for lighthouse pur
poses. The island at one tim9 must have
supported a large Indian population,
judging from the immense shell
heaps, some of which are miles in ex
tent. It is estimated that at least a
schooner-load of relics, manufactured
by the Indians from stone, bone, and
shell, has been taken away by relic
hunters, so that now comparatively
few specimens of their handiwork re
main. The workmanship of the imple
ments and utensils found on San Nic
olas is much in advance of those
found on either of the four islands in
the Santa- Barbara channel or the
mainland. The skulls found also in
dicate a higher type of beings. Im-
Elements made of deer horns have
een found, which show that the na
tives did not consider the eighty
mile expanse of sea water stretching
between them and the mainland too
far for them to traverse in their open
Tradition says 'that about three
hundred and fifty years ago the na
tives of Alaska would sometimes
come down and make raids on the
inhabitants of San Nicolas and kill
them for their otter-skin clothing.
It is a plausible theory that these
Indians knew something of the Alas
kans, as many of their weapons and
implements are identical with those
used by the natives of Alaska at the
Hundreds of skeletons are to be
found on the surface, some seeming
to have fallen as they lie, though no
evidence of their having died from
violence can be found. However,
it is very apparent that the natives
of this island lost their lives at the
hands of their enemies or through
famine or some scourge, for in the
year 1835 but sixteen Indians were
left of the thousands that at od
time inhabited it. The catholic pad-'
res, having won nearly all of the
coast Indians to their faith and feel
ing interested in the spiritual welfare
of the handful remaining on San
Nicholas, in 1832 caused a vessel to
be sent over to remove them to the
mainland. It is said that the In
dians willingly consented to embark.
AVhen all were on board and the ves
sel was about to set sail one of the
Indian women asked permission to
go ashore to get her child, which in
her excitement she had forgotten.
Her request was granted, but before
she returned a wind sprung up and
the vessel was compelled to leave.
Alter two days of rough weather she
arrived at Wilmington, Los Angeles
county, where the Indians were land
ed and taken in charge by the pad
res. The boat was chen ordered
north, but when off the cost of Mon
terey county was wrecked. As at
that time there were but few vessels
of any kind on the coast, no effort
was made to rescue the unfortunate
woman on San Nicolas, and she was?
left to her fate. As the years went by
she whs supposed to be dead, and in
time was entirely forgotten.
About the year 1850 and for some
time previous, Capt. John Nidever ol
Santa Barbara made his first voyage
to the island, and on landing with
his crew to make explorations was
surprised to find human footprints
in the sand. A basket- woven irom
grass was also found containing a
garment made of bird feathers, and
a number of bone knives and other
implements. These were left as found.
A strong wind coming up forced the
captain to put to sea without inves
tigating the matter further.
Capt. Nidever's next visit totheisl
land was in 1853. about two years
after his first trip. .Again discover
ing human footprints, the captain
tind his crew followed them, and after
n few hours' search came upon the ob
ject of their search near the center of
the island, seated on the ground, en
gaged in removing the blubber from
a eal with a knife made of bone.
Two of the sailors walked softly up
behind the unsuspecting woman,
while Capt. Nedever stepped around
in front of her. Instead of exhibiting
su-prise or alarm, the woman met
Nidever and the others with a smile,
and other demonstrations of pleasure
and readily accompanied them to the
In appearance she was above the
medium height, of rather a fair com
plexion &nd pleasant, countenance.
Her hair, originally black, was bleach
ed to a reddish brown by exposure
to the elements. She was about 52
years of age.
Several of the oldest Indians on the
coast were brought to see the woman,
but with none could she converse, her
eighteen years of solitude evidently
having caused her to forget her lan
guage, although she had recourse to
the signlanguage, by which shemade
her wants known: In this way she
explained that her child had been
eaten by the wild dogs, a peculiar
species of which lived on the island.
The woman lived at Santa Barbara
but a few weeks when she became ill,
presumably because of. a 'change of
diet, and died. Her dress, made of
sea-bird feathers, so arranged as to
'shed water, was sent to Home, togeth
er with various trinkets and imple
ments of her manufacture.

. Insomnia Is Dangerous.
Dr. Sara B. Chase is a great believ
er in resting the brain. She said:
People die sooner from brain work
than they do from physical work.
We ought not to be obliged to work
so as to kill ourselves. We can stand
a great deal more of physical work il
we have proper conditions of life than
we can brain work. The brain is a
very peculiar organ, and requires
more attention and care than pre
haps any other organ of the body.
It must have plenty of rest and plenty
of change and recreation. The only
way to rest the brain properly and
thoroughly is by taking sleep. If the
brain becomes overtaxed and weary
through a constant amount of work
and worry it must be rested by hav
ing an entire change of scene and con
dition. When the brain has become
wearied the whole body becomes dis
organized, and for a man to be in a
healthy condition his brain must be
strong and clear and active. The
brain is the most active and hard
worked of all the organs of thebddy,
and great care must be taken that it
is not overtaxed and overburdened.
Students particularly should avoid
studying t oo hard. Persons who are
troubled withinsomnia'are in a very
dangerous condition. There are many
who obtain only two or three hours
sleep in a night and yet feel comparat
ively well and free from pain. They
will however,break down very sudden
ly. This is caused very often by their
nerves not being in a healthy condi
tion, and unless attended to at once
may develop into insanity. New

The Korse in Battle.
An officer of experience, writing on
the behavior of horses in battle,
says: "When it comes to battle, a
horse seems to know everything that
is goiDg on; but he does his duty
nobly and seems to be in his element.
He enters into the spirit of the bat
tle like a human being. He shows
no fear of death, and it is singular
that if his mate is shot down, he will
turn to look at him and seem pleased.
A horse in my battery was once
struck by a piece of shell which split
his skull so that one side was loose.
The driver turned him loose, but he
walked up by the side of thegun and
watched the firing, and when a shot
"Was fired would look away in the di
rection of the enemy-as if too see the
effect of the shot. -When a shell
would burst near by, he would calm
ly turn and look at it. When he
saw his own team going back for
ammunition, he ran back to his own
place and galloped back to the cais
son w ith the rest. When the lieuten
ant pushed him aside to put in an
other horse, he looked at the other
one sorrowfully while he was being
harnesses up, and when he seemed to
realize that there was no further use
for him he lay down and died. The
lieutenant stronlgy asserted that he
died of a broken heart." Court
Sir G- D -, a personage not un
known to fame, once encountered the
late Martin Farquhar Tupper on a
Clyde steamer, and was accosted by
him in these terms: "I perceive that
1 am not the only distinguished man
on board." Mr. Tupper smiled not
as he spoke, being quite in earnest
and, indeed, wishing to pay SirG
what he conceived to be a high com
pliment. This little incident occurred
on deck. Presently Mr. Tupper went
down into the cabin, but before doing
so handed his umbrella to a young
lady, a perfect stranger, to take care
of it for him., "Young lady," he ob
served to the astonished recipient of
the umberella, "vou will now be able
to say in after life that you once held
the umberella of Martin Tupper."
Samesmileless expression as before.
The story is told of Tupper that one
evening he attended a dinner party
after having lost his portmanteau in
the alternoon, and at the table, when
he had talked a great deal about his
loss, a wit who was present inter
rupted him by saying: "If I had lost
my portmanteau, Mr. Tupper, I, be
ing an ordinary man, should have
been justified in boring a dinner ta
ble with my grief. But you, Mr.
Tupper your philosophy is prover

A Dog Coaxer.
"Dog Profit" Holloway, the tramp
who was found a short time ago in
Connecticut, nearly dead from expos
ure, is well known there because of
the fascination he exercises over
dogs. He has been seen accompan
ied by as many as twenty-five dogs,
and he always has from four to ten
with him. Almost any dor will fol-
ow him with half an invitation, it
is said, and when he coaxe3 no dog
can resist him. Valuable dogs have
been known to leave their masters to
take up with Holloway, and, when
brought back would seek the first
opportunity to join the beggar.
Holloway has been so long a wan
derer that he can claim no to wii as
a residence, but, so far as can be
learned, he was born in Foster. II: I.

as he swung his stockinged foot over
the waste paper basket, he was aston
ished to find that bits of paper and

occasionally gave out sparks, greatlv
own to her surprise and annoyance.
She tried to surpress the exhibition by
wearing successively silk, cotton and
woolen clothing, but her dress had ap
parently nothing to do with it, and
the power departed as suddenly as it-
came. Angel mue Colton, a Jrencn
peasant girl, became, some 50 years
ago, so possessed by this singular
power that chairs, tables, brushes,
books, tongs, scissors and other ar
ticles were set in motion whenever
she approached them. She was ex
amined by a distinguished scientist,
who confirmed the wonderful tales
told of her, but when she was after
ward taken to Paris, to be studied
by the savants there, her power de
serted her just as suddenly as it had
at first appeared. This is the usual
ate of "electrical" persons: no sooner
have they begun to build hopes of
ame and fortune upon the gilt than
it leaves them, probably exhansted by
the increased physical strain of con
stant use. Atmospheric conditions

"How is it if the sagacious and
weatherwise groundhog comes out
of his lair Feburary 2 in Indiana
and retires after seeing his 'shadder,'

can the groundhog fix the weather

cases? We were rejoicing here be

To which the editor replies:
"This is a phase of the groundhog
question that has been neglected by
the Signal Ssrvice. Of course a
roundhog that has his lair near a
State line can't be depended on to
the same extent as the one that ro
sides nearer the center of the State.

groundhog, but because" the State

course, he doesn't know anything
about such lines. How is the

state or district he is in? The State
may be gerrymandered by the Legis

The Cause of Baldness.
According to the New York medi
cal Kecord, Dr Saymonne claims to
have isolated a bacillus, called by
him "bacillus crinivprax," which i.s
the cause of alopecia, it is, ho says
found only on the scalp of man, oth
er hirs'ute parts of the body and also
the fur of animals being free from it.
The bacilli invade the hair-folliclct
and make the hairs very brittle so
that they break off to the skin.
Then the roots themselves are at
tacked. If the micobos can be do
stroyed early in the disease, the vi
tality of the hairs may be preserved,
but after all the follicles are invaded
and all their structures injured, the
baldness is incurable. The following
is Dr. Saymonne's remedy to pre
vent baldness: ten" parts of rnid-cod-liver
oil, ten parts of the ex
pressed juice of onions, and five
oartd of mucilage or the yolk of an
eror, are thoroughly shaken togetb
er and the mixture applied to the
scalp, and well rubbed in. once a
week. This, he asserts, wih certain

are not already destroyed. Th-:

the remedy must be very distressing

We are now doing- considerable business
with the various Farmers' Alliances through
out the state,, and are anxious to ' give
you all the information we can. When load
ing cars on the B. & M. K. K- remember they
insist on their cars being loaded according to
the marked capacity. Should you load any
cars to be shipped over their line it will be
important for you to load them as follows:
Load in 30,000 capacity cars anywhere be
tween 470 and 570 bushels of corn. Load in
40,000 capacity cars anywhere between 650 and
750bu8hels. When we buy a car load of corn
from you we mean 500 bushels, as all eastern
and southern markets buy on that basis. So
in case you should sell three cars of corn you
could fill the same by loading three 30,000
pounds capacity cars with 500 bushels each, or
by loading two 40,000 pounds capacity cars
with 750 bushels each. Likewise a five car
sale would mean 2,500 bushels and culd be
filled with five 30,000 cars, or three 40,000 cars
and one 30,000 car. This will apply to all other
lines of railroad in the state, although no
other lines are as strict as the B. & M. We
advise you to consult with your agent be
fore loading, and never load any car on the
B. & M. system with less than 26,000 pounds
even if the car should be marked a less ca
pacity. Always ask us for billing instruc
tions before you ship to us, as we cannot at

In the STEVENS we have the most remark
able STRAWBERRY ever Introduced. It is
the earliest and best shipper of any berry in
existence. At this writing (Jan. 18,) at its
home iUajAlabama the vines are loaded with
green and ripe berrieB, while Michel's Early
along side will not bo ripe for a week, and
Crescents are just coming Into bloom. So
you see what a treasure the STEVENS is. It
does not melt when over ripe like other sorts,
but dries up as if evaporated, making it the
be6t shipping berry in existence. Send for
description and prices. Also inclose 1 cent
stamp for sample copy of Peninsular Horti
culturist. ItisfullDf just such reading mat
ter as you need. Address
