Hood River, and 'they are all truthful
men, assert s the Glacier, that after a blast
was Bet off a live toad was set free that
had been imbedded in the bard basaltic
rock 18 inches from the surface. The
toad bad swelled up to several times hia
natural size and completely filled the
cavity where he. had been imprisoned
for thousands of years. As soon as set
free by the blast, the toad wilted to the
ordinary size and bopped away, probab
ly to hunt up the companions of his
youth. The kind hearted men stood and
watched the toad enjoy his liberty.
They couldn't think of making the toad
a prisoner again even for exhibition, and
brought to town only the hole in the
rock to verify their story. ;

Dr. Sutherland of this city baa per
haps the finest collection of arrow points
and Indian relics in the city, though be
has only been collecting for two years.
The other day he received- a very fine
bow and half a dozen arrows from Cali
fornia from a former patient he had
treated in The Dalles. The arrow points
are affixed to long, straight, well-made
arrows of ependid workmanship. The
bow is also very fine, with a strong gut
string.' The bow is painted in red and
blue with a regular design. Dr. Suth
erland has arrow points which he values
as high as $5 each. The value does not
consist in the worth of the stone,' but
the rarity of workmanship and the dif
ficulty of it.
Arrow points have' been getting
scarcer and scarcer of late years, and
their value will rise fast from now on.
Of 1,500 points that Dr. Sutheriand has
secured in the past year, only about 500
have been newly found. ' They are
chiefly brought in by Indians, who per
sistently wander over the sand fields in
search of them, but the business is be
coming unprofitable even to them from
their scarcity. Tbey have 'sought to
make them, but their deception is easily
discovered bv the onnossieur, for their
manufacture is a lost art. There ia a j
regularity of the - cicatrices, and a
smoothness of work which cannot be
duplicated in this day of the world.
The most common stone is' the obsidian-
Others are found of cornelian, agate, por
phyry, bone, petrified wood, etc.
There are other valuable Indian relics
besides the arrow points. Numbers of
mortars and pestles, implements and
images have "been found which have a
great attraction to the curio hunter.
The mortars contain . evidences of much
usage, and no doubt a great' deal of
grain has been pounded up in them.
Some of .them were evidently used to
mix paint in, for . they are still colored
with, the same mysteriously made and
lasting pigments which are to this day
to be Been in hieroglyphics on the rocks
above The Dalles. Then, too, there are
Indian baskets, skillfully woven, but of
course of more recent manufacture,
Misses Anna and Bess Lang have the
choicest collection of Indian baskets in
the city. These are becoming rare, also,
for civilization has induced Indians to use
analine dyes and gaily-colored worsteds,
which rendera them of no value to the
Others who are known to have good
collections are Rev. W. C. Curtis and
A. Ullrich. The fire of 1891 destroyed
some very valuable . collections, among
them one belonging to Mr. Geo. Morgan.
