He haa been on leave of abaence since May,

"The Greek are a very enterprising peo

no less than 30,000,000 or 90,000,000 pounds

PLAN FOR NAMING 'INDIANS
Patent Medicine Men Spring; Scheme
on Omaha neeerva ' '
T. J. Balrd, agent for a patent medlcln
manufacturing house at Chattanooga, ha
Introduced a new system of nomenclature
among the Indians of the Omaha reserva
tion. Tbe system is said to be an lm
provement over that which ha obtained
for age of picking out om eccentricity
of the papoose and making hi. name con
form to it, sod It la alleged further that It
HI dispense with such picturesque title.
a. Sammy Make - Room for-Your-Uncl.
Hole-ln-the-Day and the like. The salient
feature of the plan 1 to give the papoose
a surname which, by a strange coincidence.
ia alao th name of one of the brand, of
medicine made by Mr. Balrd' house and
then tack on to the front part of it a
given" name which shall have a logical
connection with the aurname.
For example, tha Chattanooga houss la
making a kind of cordial the exact name
of which 1. not essential to thl. account
Jlmpson Weed cordial will do. All of the
papoose, of a family ar given thl a a
patronymic and then, as a Christian
name, auch appellation a. "I-Swcar-By,"
'Nothing-Like," at cetera are beatowed
upon the individual. This make tn
complet name, "I-Swear-By-Jimpon
W d-Cordlal," "Tour-Drugglt-Sell-
Jlmp.on-Weed-Cordlal," and tb like,
thereby combining utility with a good,
serviceable name that la easily remem
'My plan ia to gat th permission of tb
federal authorities to tak eighteen or
twenty of these Irdlan. to the Louisiana
Purchase exposition at St. Louis. The
naming of them Is merely a detail and
I'd rather you wouldn't say anything about
that Just at present. It l.n'c'suppo.ed
that the Indian, will take the.e names
permsnently In preference to tbelr own,
though of course it tbey should cbooss to
do so ws would have no objection. The
names will be engraved on beautlf il
bronxe, silver and gold medals and worn
about the neck, or a. badge.
"All th Indian I Ulked with took kindly
to tb plan and th agent Interposed no
objection, though of course he was not In
a position to glvs permission to take his
warda off tbe reservation. The Indians
will bs taken good cars of snd will be paid
for tbelr services."
Mr. Balrd called upon several officers at
tbe federal building yesterday to secure
their endorsement of his plan.
'Thl may explain the many peculiar
names which representatives of the Cauca
sian race are compelled to carry through
life," aald Marshal Mathews. "Such names,
for Instsnce, as Dink Botts, Abe Slupsky
and Fod Dlsmuks. For all we know they
may be tbe aurvivor. of om such enter
