SELL LIQUOR TO INDIANS.
Reports Reach U. S. Marshal that
Bootleggers Are Numerous.
Iteports have reached the office of United
States Marshal Mathews iu Omaha that
the Omaha and Wiunebago Reservations
in Thurston County arc being overrun by
'bootleggers" who are constantly selling
liquor to Indians. United States Commis
sioner Sloan of Fender writes that these
dealers' in liquor are swarming over the
reservations , many of them coming from
Dakota City , lie says that their favorite
haunt is at Homer , from which point they
work in all , directions. Scores of the In
dians are constantly in a state of intoxica
tion and fights and drunken rows are of
frequent occurrence. He adds that in one
of these rows two Indians were nearly
Prior to the time of the abolishment of
the office of field 'deputy in connection
with the marshal's office Deputy Allen
was stationed at Tender and whenever lie
heard of a bootlegger being on either of
the reservations he promptly arrested and
jailed him , and his stodc of liquor has been
taken away. Since the abolishment
of the office referrel to no deputies
liave been s.tatiojicd on the reserva *
tions atut the bootleggers have cflme
in from all the surrounding towns. The
favorite method has "been for a man lo en
ter the reservation with a load of liquor in
pint and half-pint bottles. With this he
travels past the residences of the Indians
and parcels out his goods , receiving fabu
lous prices. Complaints are filed , but be
fore an oflicer can go from Omaha to the
reservation the liquor sellers have de
parted and so far it has been impossible
to catch them.

Drying1 preparations simply devel
op dry catarrh ; they dry up the secretions
which adhere to the membrane and decomr
pose , causing a far more serious trouble than
the ordinary form of catarrh. Avoid all dry-

and use that "which cleanses , soothes and

and will cure catarrh or cold in the head
easily and pleasantly. A trial size will be

from fifty to seventy sleighs , though
sometimes from 200 to oOO are includ
ed in one caravan. The average load
is five bales , each weighing from sev
enty to 120 pounds.
Five sledges are fastened together ,
drawn by one horse , and one man at
tends to the detachment. To the rear
sledge of each group are tied a bundle
of hay and a measure of oats , so that
the horses may feed during the march.
This facilitates progress , for the cara
van does not need to halt for the pur
pose of baiting the horses. As the
horse In front , however , does not have
anything to eat before him his place
in the caravan must be changed occa
sionally to give him an. opportunity to

FAMILY WITH SIX TOES.
Singular Malformation Which Appear *
to Be Hereditary.
, "Down iu Klmble County , Texas , "
said a visitor from the lone star State ,
"is a remarkable six-toed familj , about
whom , as far as I know , nothing has
ever been told in print. Their name
is Higgins and the family is composed
at present of a grandfather ( who must
be over 90) , four middle-aged sons and
a drove of grandchildren , numbering
twenty-five or thirty.
"Old man Higgins , trho is called
'Mexican Bill' for some reason I was
never able to learn , has six toes on
each foot and his wife , who is now
dead , was equally weir provided. They
were cousins and all their sons have
six toes except one , whose feet turned
in noticeably at the ankle , but are
otherwise normal. AH the grandchil
dren have at least six toes and several
of them have seven , the extra one in
each case being more or less rudiment
ary and not developed like the others.
I can vouch for this personally , as 1
have seen the whole tribe on a num
ber of different occasions , and In sum
mer time they generally run around
barefooted. 'The Sixtbe Higginses' is
the name the family is known by
among all the neighbors. Old Mexi
can Bill has told me that his parents
were both six-toed and that the same
peculiarity existed among his relatives
as far back as he knew anything
about. " New Orleans Times-Demo
Valued as a Vegetable. ,
When the dahlia was first introduced
it was as a vegetable. The plant is
said to be really akin to the potato ,
and it was thought that it would prove
an important addition to the food re
sources of Europe. It came from Ma
drid , the Spaniards having , it is be
lieved , found it first in Mexico , and it
was introduced into France as well as
England. A few daring adventurers
appear to have nmde .1 trial of it as
an edible root , but it is sever an easy !
matter to popularize a new article of '
food , and the tuber of the dahlia did
not take on. If it had done so the
probability is that we should never
liuve troubled much about its cultiva
tion as a flower. The double dahlia
was a later product than the single ,
and for many years almost entirely
superseded the simpler flower , which
not many summers ago came into
vogue again with the interest of a new
discovery. To a considerable extent
they have gone out again now , and
the double one is again to the front
in popular favor.
Remarkable Cns-s if Slvige.
A remarkable case of sal-.age la that
of the steamship Milwaukee , which
last autumn went ashonat Port Er-
rol , near Peterhend. Finding It irnpoe-
sible to float her. as a large part of
her fore end was inextricably jammed ,
she was cut in two with belts of dyna
mite cartridges. The after part , extending -
tending from Just before the forward
end of thejiavigatlng bridge , was tow
ed to the Tyne ano moored In that
river until a new bow end was built ,
launched , and made ready for connec
tion to it. It is remarkable that this
part of the vessel was towed'with tha
bulkhead end foremost , and that the
tugboats were assisted by the ship' *
own engines. The repairers were BO
successful In their attempt to dry dock
I that the two pieces were in correct relative -
ative positions , and but little subse
quent adjustment was found neces
sary. A stranger would never suppose
lift was not looking at the original bow ,
and would find It Impossible to point
out where the Junction was effected.
