Portugal has been forced to
reply to the ultimatum of the
United States. This govern

continues to allow any of the
Spanish fleet to remain at the

Whiten Who Marry the Indian Wom
en of tho North.
At Lake Lcbargc we met nn English
man who wa3 inking his wife and three
children for n trip to Five Finger rap
ids. His wife wa3 n squaw, nnd her
fnco wis painted black, ns were also
those of "the children. I never did find
out the real reason those squaws have
for painting their faces black. Some
Bay it ia becuuse they think it makes
them more beautiful, and still others
claim that it is n preventive from the
mosquitoes. We became quite friendly
with this Englishman. He was taking
his .family to visit some of his wife's
pc6ple. Ho had just recei-ed news from
England thnt the death of three per
sons made him heir to a noble title,
and quite an inheritance, but to enjoy
its possession, etc., of course he would
have to return to England. "Of course,"
said I, "you nre going at once." He
looked around at his family nnd said:
"Well, I could hardly take them with
me, nnd I'm too fond of them to leave
them here; so I think I'll stay here my
self and let the other fellow enjoy my
property over there." This was all said
with a degree of pathos which was al
most sublime, and yet I could not help
picturing to myself the sensation that
thnt squaw wife would make nt some
reception held among his titled friends
if she were to enter nu naturel, ns we
were looking at her then. I think
something of the same thought must
have passed through our friend's mind,
for, hastily murmuring "what might
hnve been," etc., he looked suspiciously
like shedding n few tears, bade us a
hurried farewell, and gathered his
small family nnd belofTgings together
and proceeded on his way. There are
many white men in Alaska married to
the Indians. They call them squaw
men. Leslie's Magazine.
