A Queer Beet That Flourlthei In the
Mute of Washington.
Tho Indians of this county havo just
closed a religious rovlval and havo
loft for Pcl!lo county, whoro thoy
will ondoaror to rcklndlo a rollgious
spirit among tho trlhos thoro, saye tho
Alwrdoon correspondent of tho Port
land Orogonlnn. Tholr rollgion is
very unlquo, strikingly original and
distinctly Indian. It Ih known as tho
Shaker religion. It Is wild that It
flrnt originated in tho Round country
among tho Mud Hay Indians. Tho
Vory is that ono of tho trlbo,
John Slocum, was taken sick
and gradually -wasted away and
died. Preparations worn made for
the funeral, hut John surprised his
frlonds by coming to Hfo again tho
day tho funeral was to bo hold. Ho
stated that ho had gono to hoaven,
hut that ho was told to go back to
earth ugaln and help his peoplo; that
thoy woro vory wicked, and that ho
must holp them. His recovery was
vory rapid and ho nt once started this
now soot. It forbids tho use of kcro
Bono oil as an lllumlnaut; also tho uso
of tobacco and Intoxicating liquors of
uny kind. It has worked wonder
among tho (Jhohnlls county Indians,
who previously woro not noted for
tholr morality or sobriety. Ono who
has witnessed some of tholr meetings,
"When a candidate announces a
dcslro to Join ho is placed in tho
center of tho room on his tiptoes,
with his arms extended full length
over hie head. Tho crowd circlos
around him, singing, shouting, ring
Ing lolls and hammoring anything
that will make a noise. Frequently
ono of the heavy bolls Is broken, and
this Is hailed with delight, as it is
supposed that tho bud spirit has left
tho candldato and entered Into tho
lwll, filling It to bursting. Whon this
happens tho candidate Is completely
cleansed from all evil and is born
again. The candidate for admission,
after standing in tho position for a
short time, commences to shako
through fatlguo. This Is taken as a
fign that tho good spirit Is entering;

"An oa-y shavo!"' Tlio words como
trippingly, as if the art, or rather tho
mj story of shaving were fni'ili. l'rom
tlio very earlie.it ages tho problem of
shaving, llki all really great problems,
has perplexed thoughtful m-ii. Why
our paleolithic ance-.tors began to
shave Is unascertained, says tho Satur
day ISovlow. It seems so easy to lot
tho chin alone. There may havo been
some religions reason, or sexual se
lection may havo Intervened. Women
may have preiorrod a beardless wooer.
Yet this is contrary to all unulog.
When Alma Venus bohaved in tho
manner so poetically described by
Lucretius, "tho most eloquent of blas
phemers," then the wanton lapwing
procured for himself another crest,
mid tho peacock spread abroad tho
splendor of his tall. Tho bard In
man is averred by philosophers to
havo a corresponding moral. Hut
man, being reasonable, must needs
cut off his heard. To run In tho face
of huturo has ever boon his wny of as
serting his Independence and demon
strating his lordship of creation.
Kro metals were Invented, oro fire
subdued the copper to his will, man
pluek-d his beard out, or he tooled
with a sharp shell. A soapless shavo
with a shell it cannot bo called easy,
and travelers havo described tho
agonies of tho bravo. I'oneolvably,
man shaved because tho lrjaid might
be caught hold of by an enemy with
the left hand, while with the right ho
drove tho pointed Hint mule tho
fifth rib. lor whatever reason, man
in the hronxo ?go shaved with a
hron.o razor, as it wo should do so
with a paper-cutter. Tlio proeoss
must have loon slow and painful as
much so as tattooing but fashion
