try A Touching Story of Llfa
,. In the North.
Maj! S. R. Nettleton, who was two
years United States special treasury
apent at the Pribylov islands, or Seal
islands as they are sometimes called,
was a close observer of the customs of
the Aleutians, and relates many inter
esting anecdotes of his sojourn there,
says the St. Louis Republic.
"In the far away Pribylov islands
there is a little convent devoted to a
nameless reliffion," said Maj. Nettle
ton. "It has only one occupant, whom
the natives call KchatUa, the Aleutian
nun. She worships no invisible divin
ity and has no theoretical doctrines,
but she teaches her people that if they
live honestly and relieve the sick and
unfortunate they will be rewarded.
"Years afro, when the islands were
the property of Uussia, a Russian
trader came to the islands to exchange
his merchandise for sealskins and the
fur of the .silver pray fox. He fell in
love with an Aleutian maiden, the
belle of the island, and in the due
course of time they were married.
The trader and his dusky wife made
hiany voyages between the island and
Russian ports, but one day they were
brought from their ship to one of the
Al.'iskn Commercial company's huts,
both very ill with a terrible fever.
With them were two little twin girls,
whose exuberant health and spirits
were a sad contrast to tlie condition of
their parents. 'lhe next, day their
mother died. Her husband was at tlie
point of death, but when Ids dying
wife was brought to his bedside mid
asked him to give their children to her
parents lie feebly assented. When the
funeral of his wife was taking place
he too died, and the two little orphans
were removed to the home of their
"Their lives were uneventful until
they reached the age . of sixteen.
Neither hn.i lecn to school, ami they
knew nothing of the outside world, ex

fairy -a'iM told to ainu.se their child

United States purcliasett Alas .a and
sent a young profess. r ir.im one of the
leading eastern universities to the
Island on a tcieiitilic expedition, The

quailing eagerly from the I'ierian
spring, out, tier sister, nil hough quite
as bright, seemed to Ue lnne'i more in
terested in liar tutor than she was in
her grammar or arithmetic. The at
traction was mutual, and when a ship
came on whicli tlie young prefeSMOi
might have returned home he wrote to
his wife tlmt he was unexpectedly de
tained and could not come home for
another three months. T he arrivals of
ships at the islands were few and far
between, and the next mail brought a
letter imploring liiin to return home,
as. his wife was at the point of death.
It so happened that one of the Alaska
Commercial company's sclionevs was
to sail for San Francisco the billowing
day. The young professor r iMjlutely
went on board, bribing the boatmen to
refuse to bring his Aleutian sweetheart
to the schooner should she ask them to
"The schooner lay fully a mile from
the shore, and the sailors were already
in the tall masts spr ading the canvas
preparatory to departure, when one of
them caught sight of a woman swim
ming in the water. She came on board
and implored the young man to aban
don his idea of returning intnu;. or to
stay at least until tt'.e m .' '..ii), 1 let
knowledge of Kngli: h wt.- bunted, but
as she knelt, before him 1,11 tlie deck of
the ship, her dark ryes pleading more
eloquently than words, he decided to
forsake his invalid wife and spend his
days with his Aleutian love.
"lie returned to the island and en
deavored lo forget tlie woman whom
he had promised to love and cherish,
who. lying at the dark portals of death,
was longing for a parting kiss or a last
embrace before she died. The mail
which next reached the inlands in
formed him that his wife was dead;
that she died with his name on her
lips, and that her last intelligibleutter
anee was a hope that he would meet
her in the better land.
"lie read the letter and fell to the
floor unconscious. Fully two months
of faithful nursing saved him from
dying of brain fever. When he was
well enough to return home he mar
ried Ids A leutian sweetheart. KchatUa,
her sister, refused to leave the islands.
During the epidemic of smallpox,
which nearly depopulated the islands
a few years ago. she was one of the
very few who did not take the disease,
ulthough she was constantly at the
bedside of the sufferers. The simple
natives say that the Great Spirit re
fused to spoil her beauty, that she
might shine as an angel of light among
them and teach the road to the Aleu
tian heaven, where seals are plenty and
it is never cold."

As a conductor he simply worked
marvels, even with an indifferent or

perhaps enjoyed most; he would com

in the eourse of a speech referred rath
er rudely to the "grumblers" (Xorgler)
at the existing regime, and advised all
such to shake oil the dust of the Vater
land's soil. The speech created an un
usual stir in all circles, and there was a
large contingent of officials and others
who took the hint and became known
forthwith asStaubabscliuttler. Bulow,
who had always something to say or
write, held his tongue thia time, but
at the first philharmonic concert he
conducted in lierlin as he stepped on
the platform he took out a very large
handkerchief and in full view of the
audience began to dust his shoes, just
to show that he was not satisfied with
the existing state of things.

It sometimes happened that these

These were people binding the wheat

"l'robably you will hardly credit the
story, but it is quite true, and, though
the names ure withheld by the Allaha
bad paper which gives the facts, the
parties are well known. An ofiicer of
the Madras medical service was hold
in one of the most -desirable civil
surgeoncies in the province, and there
he recidved a visit from a civilian and
his wife. While driving with the lady
in a dog-cart the doctor asked her for
a kiss. It was very wrong, (especially
as there was a native servant sitting
behind the couple), and lie met, with the
stern repub! which his impudence and
imprudence invited. This exemplary
woman afterward wrote to the doctor
that she, lir.it told her husbund of his
conduct. The doctor then wrote an
abject apology, which tlie husband
submitted to the Madras government.
Without being allowed to say a word
on his own behalf, the doctor was
forthwith officially advised to re
sign the service to avoid dismissal.
Since then the Madras government has
been induced to mollify its decision.
Tlie offender is graciously permitted
to serve tho further nine months neces

At tho world's fair it was r.musing to
note the diver', ity of objects which vis

young woman, who war; busy writing
Highest of all in Leavening Power. Latest U. S. Gov't Report
in her note-book in the agricultural
building1, hurriedly ran over to a tabic
and pushed to the front with so much
zeal that the bystanders supposed she
had forpotteu her purse or something
else equally important; but having
scanned the table eagerly, she merely
said: "O, yes, sugar beets," and ran
away again to a sheltered place to
write it down.
Another instance was that of an old
couple, weary-looking and bundle
laden, who asked a guard where tho
Minnesota building could bo found.
He indicated the direction.
"Is it fur?'' asked the man.
"Yes, about half a mile from here."
"O dear! Well, come, Mary, we'll
put her through now we're here," said
tho old man, shouldering his heavy
Hut the woman was more garrulous.
She detained the guard long enough to
explain that they lived in Minnesota
twelve years and then moved to Ohio.
Now they were going back to Minne
sota. "We was goln' through Chicago, so
we jest stopped off two hours to sco

FUN FOR YOUNG JAPS.
How tho YnungHtprg Ensnare Dragon
Flies for Kltea.
One of the greatest amusements for
the children of J.umn is catching the
"dragon fly," said Dr. W. V. Taylor, of
lioston, who, according to the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat, has spent several
years in Japan. Japan is a land of
children, and thousands of them liter
ally put in several weeks every autumn
in capturing dragon flies and tying
kites to them for the fun of seeing
them fly. Soon after the turn of the
sun in tho afternoon hundreds and
thousands of huge dragon flies busy
themselves flying here and thero over
the rice fields and gardens, catching
insects and gnats. The Japanese hoys
carefully saturate the end of a bamboo
with tar and start out for the fun.
They must hold the buraboo up to at
tract the unsuspecting dragons to take
a rest. In a moment the boy gives the
bamboo a twist, and puts tho tar end
into fin rannv motions that it, is impos
sible for the creature to avoid it. The
boys are so expert at the business
that I have seen them chase u fly that
had gotten much ahead of them, and
succeed in sticking the dragon fly to
the reed. Wlum onco on the tar end
of the pole there is a miserable future
for the captives. They aro tied to
gether and carried around in the chase.
Then a string is tied to each one, and
a small piece of paper, serving us a
kite, which the poor flies arc required
to sail. They fly away, but of course
soon get caught in a tree or bush sad
die of starvation.
HOW TO HANDLE CAMELS.
The Ohatlnate Animals Mnat lie lluraorsd
Camels aro not like horses, says the
Ash ton Reporter. If 11 horse does not
want to do anything wo make him. It
a camel does not want to do anything
ho leaves it undone. No amount ol
coaxing, no amount of cruelty will
make him budge. He has the deter
mination of a mulo combined with tho
strength of aa elephant. A camel is
one of those aggravating brutes
which will drive a hot-tempered man
to distraction. Nothing will persuade
him to listen to reason. He will op
pose your will with a passive resist
once that is absolutely unconquerable.
The only way to treat a camel is to
humor if you cannot humbug him.
They will often lie down if you load
them with tho proverbial last straw,
and you might beat them to death or
offer up all the pleasures of Paradise
before they would get up. They are
pig-headed beasts. Sometimes when
they havo quite a light load they
turn nasty and throw themselves

to tho ground. Cut, although
they are obstinate, they aro not
cuto, and an Arab, by pretending to
submit, can generally get the better of
the stubborn beasts. The drivers will
ostentatiously removo three or four
packages from the load, and the ani
mal, with an inward chuckle of satis
faction, rises at once, without perceiv
ing' that the parcels have meanwhile
been returned to their former place.
As ho flatters himself ho has shirked
some of his duty he swings away with
a light heart, gratified beyond meas
ure, like a spoiled child, at having its
own way. The camel is an unsociable
beast, llo is also habitually dull, ex
cept when he is sniffing the salt air of
tho desert. When ho in treading the
sands, with tho burning sun ou his
back and the boundless waste before
him, he feels himself at homo. The
immcniio heat makes him bubble over
with pleasure and fills his frame with
sublime intoxication. It has been
stated on tho best authority that he
can go nine days without water. Anil
if you had ever seen a camel drink
water when lie does get a chance of
quenching his thirst you would not bo
surprised at this. They have been
known to put away seven gallons and
a half at a time.
HIS LEG WAS BROKEN.
Dut Xt Was a Wootlen Los nnd Didn't
Hurt lllin Snrlously.
Police officers detailed in charge of
postal wagons see more of tho woes and
ills of suffering humanity than most
people. Lato one night a short time
ago a Chicago saloonkeeper called for
the ambulance from tho West Chicago
nvenue station, saying there was a man
lying on tlie sidewalk near Carpenter
and Front streets badly injured and
unconscious. Tho unfortunate was
bundled into tho umbulauco and
landed in the examining room at the
county hospital. On the way to the
hospital tho sufferer became partially
conscious and indicated that his right
leg was the cause of great discomfort.
He. could not speak English, but tho
officers understood that his right leg
had been injured. In the examining
room he mado an extremely wry face
when tho physican approached, and it
was then discovered he hud been drink
ing heavily. The physician felt tho
man's right leg between the knee nnd
ankle without drawing up the panta
loons or exposing the skin, nnd found
the bono broken bailly four or flvo
inches nbovo tho ankle, and tho pa
tient was then removed to tho operating
room. Here a more complete examin
ation was made, and it was learned
the man's right leg was broken in tho
most terrible manner. AVhen tho
patient saw the condition of his leg ho
actually shed tears. It was a wooden
leg, and he was drunk and bemoaning
the expense to be incurred in tho pur
chase cf another leg.
Lord ISowen, an Unglish judge, was
once tempted to sum up ironicdly. It
was tho case of a burglar wha had
been caught, having cntereil from tho
roof and taken the prccauti m to leavo
his boots on top. His defense waa that
he was in the habit of taking miJnight
htrolls on the roofs of houses, and that
he was tempted by curiosity to havo a
look at one of tho interiors. Lord
ISowen said, sarcastically: "If, gentle
men of the jury, you think it probable,
that the prisoner considered tho roofs
of the houses a salubrious place for an
evening walk; if you suppose that tho
temptation to inspect the interior of
the bouses beneath him was tho out
come of a natural and pardonablo curi
oisity. In that case, of course, you will
acquit hira, and regard him as a
thoughtful and considerate man, who
would naturally removo his boots be
fore entering tho house, and take
every precaution not to disturb his
neighbors." To the judge's amazement,
the jury took him at his word and ac
quitted the prisoner. Lord Ilowen
never attempted to jolto with a jury
