The horrors of the Skaguay trail haw
only half been told. A number of men
have recently returned from the White

- fit to sicken the stoutttt heart and sub--due

young fellow, wilU plenty of

trail was never ready f:r travel, ard
the "promoters" who are responsible
for all the waste of time and money
should be prosecuted. Eickard arrived
at Skaaruay on the Islander, which de-
posited its passengers on August 1, and
so was among- the earliest earners. He
had an- ordinary miner's outfit, weigh-
ice' 1,200 pounds, two horses and J20O.
He considered himself fairly well
equipped. He helped the others cor
duroy the trail and bridge the rivers,
By the time this necessary work had
been done crowds of .wayfarers had
arrived, end soon the trail was worse
In eight weeks of the hardest work
he had ever done Eickard managed to
get his goods to the summit of the last
hill. Then his money was gone, his
horses exhausted, and he had the choice
of wintering hi the timber by the lakes.
while his food supply diminished, or of
returning to California and earning
more money to again attempt the trip
noi Hi ward. He figured that if he
camped the winter, as so many are
counting upon coin 2 he would have an
early start in the spring, but would by
that time have only two months pro
visions left at the outside, and he was
already peuniless. Eickard spent his
money for food and shoes for his horses.
He says the difficulty of feeding horses
on the Skagnaj- tra"l is enormous. It
was necessary tj go ail the way back
to Skaguay for hay, and by the time it
was brought back to the hungry ani

almost a failure. They are good over

It may be that we are, -with.respect to

the preceding century had dared to pre

nineteenth, he would probably have
been declared a fool, and treated as
was Eobert Mayer, in Germany, in this
century, who, after the discovery of the
law of the conservation of force, was
put into an insane asylum. A like fate
might befall the man who should dare
now to cast a horoscope for the twen
tieth century, and to predict the prog
ress of the human mind in the various
domains of scientific research. After

The young ladies cT the norma1
school in Winona were lately throwj.
into a flurry of excitement, says the St
Paul (Minn.) Dispatch. They wen
called into one of the reeitation-roon:
and put through a rigid examination
about the number of callers each had
and a description of each caller. They
were told that.it was highly impropes
to receive a caller from out of the city,
and that many of tLe young men of the
city were not proper persons with
whom to associate.
. it was also considered highly im
proper to receive a call which was 61
more than 20 minutes' duration. In all
over a dozen questions were required tr
be answered, all of which were in regnrcl
to the subject of gentlemen cullers.
A number of rules were giver to lb.'
young ladies, which they ware told they
must obey. Among them was one for
bidding the same young m?ti to call
upon them more than three times a
year, and then the call must be purely
formal and not exceed 15 or SO minutes'
The young ladies were also requested
to furnish a list of their callers and
their characters, and as to the genera'
subjects of conversation when calling
or riding, and if the landlady where
they boarded approved of the young
Some of the young ladies are indig

SEEP KILLED BY DOGS.
Facts Ascertained Through
cial Census Figures.
The Dtuie Done by Worthless Cars
Exceeds That Resnltlns; from the
Fury of the Elements
Showlnsr by States.
The dogs in the United States kill
nearly two per cent of the sheep in
the country every year. They killed
more than 600,000 sheep in the year
ending June 1, 1S00, when the last sta
tistics in regard to the flocks were gath
ered. The damage done-by them is
greater than that from any other cause
except unexpected storms, in which
whole flocks of sheep are killed, and dis
ease. In . six states more damage was
done to the flocks of sheep by dogs
than by anything else. In Florida 9,833
sheep were "killed by dogs, and only
4,750 by the weather and disease. The
number killed by dogs was about nine
per cent, of the total number of sheep in i
the state. The Florida sheep are not
exposed to such changes in temperature
us those oh the farms in Nevada, where
128,850 died of cold and disease. Only
7,372 sheep were killed by dogs in Ne
vada in the census year. The enormous
number of deaths from changes in the
weather was due to unprecedented
storms, which caught the breeders un
prepared and almost halved their flocks.
In South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama,
Louisiana and Arkansas dogs do more
damage to sheep than anything else,
and inore than weather conditions and
disease combined. In Massachusetts,
Ehode Island and Connecticut the num
ber of deaths in the flocks due to dogs
is almost the same as that due to disease
, wpather This is true in Wis-
nd the weather 1 his is true in Jms
sissippi, too. in mis staic, iuu.it-.;, ; cw
The dogs made the best showing in
Vermont, where they killed 3.0m sheep,
! against 28,000 which died from disease
and exposure in an averaare winter.
The Ohio and Michigan, dogs have good
records, too, for they killed only one
sixth as many sheep as storms and dis-
ease. North Carolina and Tennessee
dogs are red with the blood of sieep.
They killed four-fifths as many as
the other causes of death combined,
In Kentucky, Texas, West Virginia, In-
diana, Minnesota and Iowa the dogs did
one-half as much damage as other
causes combined; in, Virginia, Missouri
and Oklahoma, two-thirds as much; in
Illinois and Wisconsin, one-third as
much, and in Delaware, Maryland, Kan-
. - r . .
sas, California ana xsew nampsmre,
one-quarter as much.
If the winter of 1880-90 had not been
a bad one for sheep in Nevada, Oregon,
tj.i.. ir a v ir : T
Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, Utah,
Washington and Wyoming, the dogs
would make a worse showing in the cen
sus tables than they do. In these states
whole flocks on certain ranges were ex
terminated, and thus the percentage
of deaths due to exposure and disease :
was raised to 6.95 for the whole coun-
try. The dogs killed nearly two peri
cent, of the total sheep population.
- The sheep raisers don't like dogs
as a general thing. Many states use
the money received from dog taxes to
pay for the damage they do. . In these
states some of the farmers are not un
friendly to the dogs. If a sheep dies or
is killed by a wildcat or falls from a
Iedcre of rock, the thrifty farmer re-
turns it to thg proper officers as a sheep I Great excitement and discord fol

the value of it from the county and from
the owner cf the dog that killed it.
Sheep-killing' dogs become well-known
in the community where their masters
live. Sometimes the dogs are such
gopd hunters that their masters refuse
to allow them to be killed, and try to
keep them from doing . any damage.
Such a dog owner is an er-ey mark for
the unscrupulous sheep breeders. Every
time a sheep is killed, dies or disappears,
the owner will go to the deg's master
and demand pay for the dead animal,
threatening' to have the dog killed if
its owner does not pay up. The dog
may be innocent, but because it bears a
bad reputation its owner submits. If
there are more owners of sheep killers
than one, the farmer may collect from
each and make a good thing of his
sheep. He may collect from the Coun
ty, too. -
Most dogs that kill sheep- are bad
dogs all the way through, and sports
men and farmers unite in trying to get
rid of them. . A sheep-killing dog is
usually a tramp, untrained and worth
less for hunting. Many of the dogs
that kill sheep are ownerless. The
fanners shoot them wnen they can, and
sportsmen. anxioU3 that their dogs
shall not be accounted bad because of
the- misdeeds of ownerless curs, help
them. Some farmers set t raps for sheep
killers. The traps arc like wolf traps,
and are set where a sheep is killed, the
body cf the sheep being' used for bait.
Sheep-killing dogs usually visit the
scenes cf their depredations as a mur
derer is said to -haunt the spot where
he commits a crime. The farmers anil
breeders count on this,, and set their
traps accordingly... Son-.etimcs they
put arsenic in the carcass to make sure
that the guilty dog shall rot cs:-ape.

THE WOLF AND THE EAGLE.
A Legend of Two Toons; Saranae In
When we think of the Indians, we are
apt to remember only the harsh and
cruel traits that they have shown; but
in their stories and legends many
noble qualities are hidden under their
cruelty, like pearls in- the uncouth shell
of the oyster.
In one of these legends we are told
that there used to be a great many wiz
ards among the tribes, or sachems, as
the Indians called them, who were coun
selors in the camp, but whose chief de
light was in doing evil. They worked
so much mischief in the hunting
grounds that at last the Great Spirit
locked them in the hollow trees that
grew along the trail.
Some of them, in their struggles to es
cape, thrust their arms out of the trees,
but the closing wood imprisoned them,
and they may be seen tathis day, twist
ed and distorted in agony, as gnarled
roots -and withered trunks and
Others survived this terrible trans
formation, and among them was Oqua
rah, a bent, decrepit, aged sachem, cruel
and evil minded, and jealous lest his
power should wane, or be eclipsed by
that of a rival. The fate of his brother
sachems did not arouse pity in his heart,
nor did it soften him to know that he
had been spared.
Oquarah lived with a tribe of the
Saranacs, in which were two young
warriors, whose bravery and truth com-

their companions. One of these braves
was called the Wolf, the other the
Eagle, and they were friendly rivals in
all deeds of valor.
One day, in the moon of great leaves,
when the hunting grounds were starred
with flowers, and the soft south wind
blew over the land, the Wolf and the
Eagle left the camp and set out upon a

hours together, but at last had become

came to return, he had searched in

Then the sachem clutched his hatchet, !

The Gold Product.
The preliminary estimates of the di
rector of the mint indicate that the
world's gold product for 1897 amounted
to about $240,000,000. This is an in
crease of nearly 20 per cent, over 1896.
All of the great sources of supply show
a gain. The United States leads the
list, with a product of $61,500,000; but
is . closely followed by Africa with a
product of $58,000,000, and - Australia
with $51,000,000. Russia, Mexico, Can
ada and India follow in the order
named Bussia with $25,000,000, Mexico
with $10,000,000 and Canada and India
each with $7,500.000. .
NOW THE TUKKEY FOOT.
New Charm That Is Worn by
The Rabbit's Foot, So Lone Popular,
Has Been Displaced by the New
. Mascot An Old Negro's
The rabbit's foot is not in the race
any longer as a charm. What has
caused the downfall of bunnie's hind
foot as a protection against all ef.il
and an assurance of perpetual good
luck for it3 happy possessor is rather a
puzzling question and one which the
fair sex and the advocates of the new
fad would find it hard to explain. Per
haps the late presidential campaign
may have hod something to do with it.
Every one knew that the silver candi
date was presented with a rabbit's foot
immediately upon receiving his nom
ination, and that the mascot complied
with all the requirements of the case,
for it was "the left hind foot of a molly
cottontail, that had been killed in the
full of the moon, at 12 o'clock at night
in a graveyard, by a red-headed nigger."
Well, the rabbit having enjoyed so
great and so long a run of popularity,
in the natural course of events, the
time has come for him to step down
and out. He has done so, and his place
has been taken by one of the kings of
the farmyard the lordly turkey.
Fashion decrees that in order to be
lucky one must wear in some manner
or possess in some shape or other a
This fad is so new that it has hardly
reached the counters yet, except in one
or two shops which pride themselves
upon bringing out all the most ex
clusive novelties. Of course, it will,
eventually become as common as the
craze for rabbits' feet, but to-day it is
a very difficult thing to find a turkey's
claw prepared in the proper style for a
charm against bad luck.
The most popular style at present is
the natural claw, properly treated by a
taxidermist, its shank covered by a sil
ver or gold cap set with an amethyst,
turquoise or the new green stone,
which resembles an emerald. The tip
of the nail is "covered with a gold or
silver cap, with a fine chain to match
the cap from the shank to what one
might call the wrist of the claw, and a
pretty scarlet ribbon bow with long
ends tied just below the shank.
These new mascots are 30 arranged
that they can be hung up as ornaments,
or used as paper weights or table orna
ments. In one case I saw one Drof usel v
bejeweled, which was intended for a
cabinet. As dress ornaments they are,
so far, but little used, though I was told
they were being fashioned into clasps
for fastening golf capes at the neck.
I asked an old colored man if he had
ever heard of the turkey's claw as be
ing an unlucky or lucky charm.
"Why, yes," he replied. "Down south,
where I come from, it is better and
luckier to steal your Thanksgivin' or
Christmas turkey. I don't hold with
the fashion of stealing anything, but if '
you can only steal your turkey for the
holiday dinner you will have good luck
all the rest of the year. In the old (fays
the 'massa would put away a lot of tur
keys, and the darkies would go in the
night, just at 12 o'clock, and steal the
"But what about the claw? What
good luck does that bring?"
"Why, bless your heart, don't yon
know that the turkey s foot is an aw
ful lucky thing? You must take the
claw after you have cleaned your tur
key a stolen one, mind you dip it in
salt, bury it, you better say, in a dish
of salt for a whole week, and let it lie
there, so that all the bits of flesh which
stick to it are cleaned away, and your
foot is just as sweet as a nut. Then
you take it out and scrape it and clean
it and polish it, until it just shines like
a piece of stone. Then you put it up
over your door, and no bad luck, sick
ness or anything can come in during
"Will ii keep out death?"
"No, ma'am, it will not. Don't you
konw sometimes death is the biggest
piece of good luck that can happen to
"But do you know why turkey's foot
is lucky?" "
"I never heard but one reason, and
that was that after the devil had
tempted Eve" and was crawling away
after getting her to eat the apple, he
came across the turkey's path and the
turkey lifted up his right foot and
struck at his head. The blow was so
hard that the devil was stunned for a
moment. And that is the reason of the
turkey's right foot being lucky against
ad fortune." N. Y. Herald.
