Ths enlistment of Indian to form 8
troop and 19 companies in as many
cavalry and infantry refimenU, It an
Important step toward a solution of
tha "Indian problem." It is, of
course, an experiment, but one form
from which no barm can eoma to the
new recruit or to the service. It
nay be productive of good, certainly
to the Indians, probably to the Army.
Tbe use of subject tribes under
white officers has proved ucesful In
the British occupation of India, and
there are many who believe that It
aolved a difficult problem there. In
the use of Indians as snouts our Array
made a stop toward tbe present ex.
The War Department does not ex
pect to escape difficulties in the or
ganization of these Indisn cotopunles.
It may be very slow rocrulUiij, es
pecially fcr the Infantry, as the Indian
has a prejudice to life out of the sad
dle, but among the Navsjoi and some
other of the tribe of Arl.ona and New
Maxico may be induced to talco serv
ice in the lufantry. Thne Indians, it
is said, do mot of their righting and
trailing on foot, and will readily
adapt theuiselves to infantry llfo.
The conditions of enlistment will be
about tbe same as those governing
white reoruiw, excepting, of course, a
requirement of a knowledge of Eng
lish and testimonials of previous moral
character, which tho life of the Indian
has mode it unreasonable to Insist
Tbe authorized enllMed strength of
the army remain ut 15,000, and if
the ludian enlistments prove success
ful the secretary will ilc Congrens to
inorease the strength of the army, so
at to include tho 1,600 Indian recruits
that are hoped for. At prcaont the
enlisted strength is 33,000, and aomo
difficulty is now oncounlcrod in secur
ing whito and negro recruits.
The Indian companies will have
separate quarters, but In all other re
elects will be treated as other sol diers
are. They will be required to
enlist for Ave years. Doubtless ex
perience will suggest to tho War De
partment and to the ofllcers assigned
to the Indian companies variations In
clothing, food, equipments, and, per
haps. In discipline; but those most
familiar with the Indians when em
ployed as scout assert that the Intel
ligence of the Indians is likely to be
cl a hlglior order than that of tho ne
gro or the average white recruit.
Those favorable to tho present experi
ment believe that the influence of dis
cipline; upon the moral, mental and
physical condition of the Indian re
cruits will be as plainly seen quite as
aoon as it is upon any other materlul
from which our army Is drawn.

t A Lallsr In a ttiitlnn,
A most unlquo relic of thu late war
Is possessed by George Clutch, ol Col
umbus, Ind. It Is a button off a pri
vate soldier's uniform. 'During the
latter part of the war Mr. Clutch's
brother-in-law, J. F. Uellaher, whose
home is in Ohio, had the misfortune
to be captured by the Confederates and
confined in Libhy prison. After Mr.
Uallaber had been there some time he
began to feel the need of money, which
would enhance his prospect of reach
ing tho Union lines should he succeed
In making bis ecapo. A surgeon of
his regiment, who was In tho prison,
was about to bo exchanged, lie cut
off one of the largo brass buttons
from his uniform, and separating the
two parts of It, made a cavity by tak
in? out the Glllng. lie then wrote on
a slip of blank paper, in a small but
distinct hand, the following note to
his wife, which he Inclosed in tho
eavltv and again scaled the button to

This note 1 well preserved, and wus
till resting snugly in its place in the
button when shown recently by Mr.
Clutch. To continue tho story the
button was made to take the place of
another on the uniroi'm of the ex
changed surgeon, who reached home
and delivered It to Mrs. Uallaher in
due time. It could not have escaped
tbe close scrutiny of the officers
had it boen conveyed out of tho prison
In anv other manner, as tho ollieors
were particular to search all of the ex
changed prisoners. Including the sur
peon, most minutely. Mr. Ualluhcr
did not have much hope that his
scheme would succoej, even should
thu note reach hl3 wire, but ho was
aurprUed, for the fruit arrived In
hort tlm, and although closely In
spected by the prison officials they
failed to discover the vial .containing
the money concealed in one of the jars
of thick prtwerves. hoon after re
celvlng tbe money Mr. (iiiUnher suc

There was one question that .you
could safely wager would be asked by
five out of ten. and that was. "IK you
honestly thlok you are right?" This
conundrum was offered to me so often
that wero time allowed, being in
President Lincoln's country. I an
swered in President Llneoln'a style by
stating that it "reminded me," and
told them of the couple who took their
bridal trip on an ocean steamer with
the usual result As the husband
would return from sundry trips to the

inquire, -Reginald, darling, are you

of the usual paint, that the platos

When the fiit Kuropeans visited
China and begun to obtain information
regarding the traditions of the country
they learned, among other things, that
in the natural history of the people
was an enormous subterranean . rat
The fat was five or six times as large
as a horse, had terrible teeth, and
lived chiefly in the northern country,
where it forced its way beneath moun
tain range, so that when a tremor of
tin earthquake was heard in China the
parents would turn to tho child and
"My son, lx-have yourself. The
t.vn-schu is burrowing licneath the
mountains, making the earth tremble."
Thus it cume' to be believed by all
that the big rut wan un actual fuet.
No one could bo found, however, who
had met with the tyn-schu until a hun
tor from the far north was discovered

ego I traveled in Northern China and
Siberia, following up the rivers to the
northern ocean. One winter the cold
had been more severe than usual, find
we started down tho 1-na before the
ice had gone. It was si ill very cold,
but we kept on, hoping to secure many
fish to dry and carry into the Interior
One day wo wero passing B high
cliff tiiat was partly undermined by a
turn in tho river when my comrade
nuked me if I had ever seen a tyn-schu.
I rfplii-d no. 'Well,' ho said, there Is
one coming out.'
"I looked up and there, about forty
feet from tho beach, was a big black
muss of something. I could teo two
long teeth, a longf tail and Its shaggy
fur, and It was evidently struggling to
get out, its the lee cllIT was cracko I.
" -Whoa he sees the sunlight,' my
comrade said, 'it will kill him and
whun wo come buck we shall find him
dead.' And this was true, for several
months later when wo went buck there
lay tho monster on tho bench dead. It
had crawled out of its hole and died in
thesunliirht and was mostly cnten up
by hears and wolves. We cut off tho
big teeth, which were us much n two
men could lift, and took them up tho
river where I sold one, which 1 lieu id
was sent to tho Kineror."
Such was tho Chinaman's story, and
that he believed that the rat was real

the finding in China of gigantic bones,

I experienced nothing of tho kind,
though I swam about for not lews than
twenty minutes. The presence of lime

as densfl as that of tho son, and the
bdther feels more buoyant and swims
with slighter effort than in fresh
water. Though displeasing to the

Newspaper obituaries are not always

cording to tho public importance of
tho subject, are regularly classified

of avoiding confusion or delay in case

the debasement. of woman Is perhbpi
more thorough and complete than n
any city of northern hnroper Mio,
hero, practically supplants the oeasts
of burden. And I am not altogether
unfamiliar with woman's work in
Kuropo. I have seen her round the
pit mouth, at the forge, and bare-footed
In the brick yards of "merry Eng

have dally watched her bearing the
heat and burden of tho day in the
fields of the "Fatherland," and in
Austria-Hungary doing the work of
man and beust on the farm and in tho
I have seen women emergo from the
coal-pits of "busy Ueigium," where
little girls and young women graduate
under-ground as hewors of coal und
drawers of carts, for it is no uncom.
mon thing In Kuropo to hitch women
and dogs together, that manufacturing
may be done cheaply.
Aged, hunt und sunburned, I have
seen women, with rope over shoulders,
tollinc on tho banks of canals and
dykes in picturesque Holland. Having
witnessed all this, 1 was yet surprised
to find in a city so beautiful and
seemingly so rich and prosperous as
Stockholm, women still more debased.
In Stockholm she is almost ex
clusively employed as hod-carrier and
bricklayer's assistant. She carries
bricks, mixes mortar, and. In short,
does all the heavy work obout tho
building. At tho dinner-hour you
see groups of women sitting on the
piles of wood and stones euting their
frugal repast. They wear a short
gown, coming a trine oe.ow me Knee,
with home-knitted woollen stockings
and wooden shoes. Over the head a
handkerchief is tightly tied. Those
engaged in mixing mortar and tending
plasterers wear aprons.
They are paid for a day of hard
work of this toil, lHsting twelve hours
the magnificent sum of one kroner
