NOT FOND OF WATER.
The fact that neatness of person is a
habit that is easily lost if neglect is once
allowed is proved nowadays in a great
many individual cases, but it has been
proved on a larger scale by the exerience
of the world after the baths of the an
cients went out of fashion.
In the change of the world's habits
incidental' to the change of religion, and
esiKcially w ith the deserved condemna
tion of the Roman public baths by the
Christian church, the practice of public
bathing came to an end, and that of
private bathing unhappily became only
The usages of the generations preced
ing the present century, in personal
habits, are almost incredible to us. A
lunik recently published, of which Mr.
Alfred Franklin is the author, contains
some facts regarding the domestic life
and social usages of the period from the
twelfth to tbe eighteenth century, which
are in a sense instructive, since they
show to what a condition even "elegant
society" may descend, w ben the watch
ful care for personal cleanliness is once
Tbe ladies of the seventeenth century
very seldom washed their faces. They
sometimes dipped a cloth in spirits and
passed it over their faces, and their toilet
codes and directions, still extant, prove
that they avoided water for the face be
cause they believed it was destructive to
the complexion. As for any other sort of
baths, no reference is found to them in
these toilet directions, probably for the
very good reason that none were ever
That the same ladies washed even
their hands seems to be established also.
In an old romance a princess says to a
young lord of the court: "You see, sir,
that my hands are whiter than yours, al
though it is four days now since I washed
This seems to have been a common
place remark, and treats of a condition of
things which was taken quite as a matter
Richelieu was known among the men
of the seventeenth century as a man who
was to some degree eccentric, from the
fact that be was neat in his person. That
he is mentioned as a "man who bathed"
seems to prove that it was not common
for men to "bathe" at that time.
The women of the courts of Louis XIV
and XV of France powdered their faces
incessantly instead of w ashing them, and
built enormous head-dresses upon heads
that were never combed. The accounts
which are given of some results of this
practice are almost beyond belief.
"The late Lord Longford," says a coi
resondent of the London World, "was
an old Wykehamist, and remarkable as a
schoolboy in several ways. When at
Winchester as the Hon. W. L. Paken
harn he had the reputation of being the
best const ruer of Virgil in his time at
'pulpiteers,' the school term for viva voce
rendering into English. As a cricketer,
he enjoyed the extraordinary distinction,
together with two other Wykehamists,
A. Lowth and N. Parnell, of being se
lected to play for the Gentlemen (18)
against the Players at Lords in 183(1,
while be was still a boy in tiie school
eleven. He was always extremely well
dressed, ami lr. Moberly, who had thirty
years' experience as head master, said
"he was the most impudent boy he ever
knew, a statement erhaps founded on
the following fact: Pakenham, on one
occasion, appeared in school with a large
bunch of flowers in his buttonhole.
'Pakenham,' said Moberly, ' I do not ob
ject to one tlower in a well-dressed boy's
coat, but 1 cannot permit boys to come
into school with nosegays.' 'Very well,
sir,' said Pakenham. Two days after-
ird he came into school with a gigantic
nilower fastened to bis coat. Paken
ham, what is that'." said Moberly. 'Only
flower, sir,' said Pakenham, in a mild
jiee ; 'you said you did not mind my
oiniug into school wuii a single nower in

REMNANTS OF A FADING RACE.
The Ghost of Longfellow Stalking

ous Changes of 2."0 Years.
There can ho nothing more pathetic
than to watch the decay of a race, even
though it be a scrub race. To watch the
decay of the Indian race has been with
me, for many years, a passion, and the
more the Indian has decayed the more
reckless I have been in studying his
The Indian race for over two hundred
years has been a race against Time, and
I need hardly add that Time is away
ahead as I pen these lines.
But the Indian is on the wane, what
ever that is. He is disappearing from
the face of the earth, and we find no bet
ter illustration of this sad fact than the
gradual fading away of the Sliinnecock
Indians near the eastern extremity of
In company with the World artist, I
went out the other day to Southampton
and visited the surviving members of
this great tribe.
Neither of us knetf the meaning of
fear. If we had been ordered by the
United States government to wipe out the
whole Sliinnecock tribe, we would have
taken a damp towl and done it.
The Sliinnecock tribe now consists of
James Dunn and and another man. But
they are neither of them pure-blooded
Sliinnecock Indians. One-Legged I .ive,
an old whaler, who, as the gilteti iv.ider
has no doubt already guessed, has but
one leg, having lost the other in going
over a reef many years ago, is a pure-
blooded Indian, hut not a pure-blooded
Shinnecock. Most of these Indians are
now mixed up with the negro race by
marriage and are not considered warlike.
The Shinnecocks have not been rash
enough to break out since they had the
measles some years ago, but we will let
There are now about 150 Shinnecocks
on the reservation, the most of whom are
negroes. They live together in peace and
hominy, trying moat of the time to ascer
tain what the wild waves are saying in
regard to fish.
There is an air of gentle, all-pervading
peace which hangs over the Sliinnecock
hills, and that had its effect even upon
mv tumultuous and aggressive nature,
wooing tne to repose. I could rest there
all this summer and then, after a good
night's rest, go right at it again in the
morning. Kest at Southampton does not
seem to fatigue one as it does elsewhere.
The Sliinnecock Indian has united liiB
own repose of mariner with the calm and
haughty distrust of industry peculiar to
the negro, and the result is something
tint approaches nearer to the idea of
eternal rest than anything 1 have ever
seen. Tbe air seems to be saturated with
it, and the moonlight is soaked full of
calm. It would be a good place in wr.icii
to wander through the gloaming and pour
gallon or so of low, passionate yearn
ing into t lie ear of a loved one.
We visited Mr. James Bunn at his home
on Huckleberry avenue, saw the city hall
and custom house, and obtained a lront
view of it, secured a picture of the resi-
nce of the street commissioner, and
sen I talked to Mr. Bunn while the art
ist got a marine view of his face.
Mr. Bunn was for forty years a whaler,
hut had abandoned the habit now, as
there is so little demand among the res
taurants for whales, and also because
there are fewer whales. I ascertained
from him that the w hale at this season of
the year does not rise readily to the fly,
but bites the harpoon greedily during the
middle of the dav.
Mr. Bunn also gave us a great deal of
other information, among other things
informing us of the fact that the white
men had been up to their old tricks, and
were trying to steal portions of the reser
vation that had not been nailed down.
He did not say whether it was the same
man who was trying to steal the old
Southampton graveyard or not.
J ames is about seventy-live veers old,
and his father once lived in a wigwam on
the Shinnecock hills. Mr. Bunn says the
country has changed very much in the
ist 2-"0 years, and that I would hardly
know the place if 1 could have Seen it at
lirst. During that time be says that two
other houses have been built and he has
resbingled the Lot his barn with hay.
It is, indeed, a pathetic picture. Here
on the stern aud rock-bound coast, where
their ancestors greeted ( olumhus and
other excursionists as they lauded on the
new dock and at once had their pictures
taken in a group for the illustration on
the greenbacks, now the surviving relic
of a brave people, with bowed heads and
frosting locks, are waiting a lew days only
for the long, dark night of merciful ob-

great , inherent power of rum as a human
leveller. 1 he Indian has, perhaps, great
er powers of endurance than the white
man. and enters into tne great unequal
fight with rum almost hilariously, but he
loses his presence of mind and forgets to
call a cab at the nroiier moment. This is
t matter that has never been lully under
stood even by the pale face, and of course
the Indian is a jiertect child in the great
conflict with ruui. The result is that the
Indian is passing away under our very
eyes, and the time will soon come when
the Indian agent will have to seek some
other healthful outdoor exercise.
So the consumptive Shinnecock, the
author of "Shinny on Your own Ground
and Other Uatnes," is soon to live only
in the flea-bitten records of a great na
tion. Once he wrote pices for the boys
to speak in school, Biid contributed large
ly to MeXiufl'y's and Sanders' jeriodicals,
but now vou never hear of an Indian who
is a good extemporaneous public speaker,
or who can write for sour apples.
He no longer makes the statement that
ho is an aged hemlock, that his limbs are
withered and his trunk attached by the
constable. He has ceased to tell through
the columns of the Fifth Header how
swift he used to be as a warrior and that
the w arpath is now overgrown with grass.
Ho very seldom writes anything for the
papers except over the signature of Veri
tas, and the able young stenographer
who used to reMrt his speeches at the
council (ire seems to have moved away.
Two hundred and fifty years ago the
Shinnecock Hills w ere covered by a dense
forest, but in that brief period, as if by
magic, two and one-half acres of that
ground have been cleared, which iB an
average of an entire acre for every hun
dred years. When we stop to consider
that very little of this work was dono by
the women and that the men have to at
tend to the cleaning of the whales in
order to prepare them for the table, and
also write their contributions for the
school-books and sign treaties with the
White F'ather at Washington, we are
forced to admit that had the Indian's life
been spread for a few thousand years
more he would have been alive at the
end of that time.
So they wander on together, waiting
for the final summons. Waiting for the
pip or measles, and their cough is dry
and hacking as they cough along together
towards the large and wide hereafter.
They have lived so near Ma'nhatten,
where refinement is so plenty, where the
joy they jerk from barley every other
dav but Sunday gives the town a red
dish color, that the Shinnecock is dying,
dying with his cowhide boots on, dying
with his hectic flush on, w hile the church
bells chime in Brooklyn and New Yorkers
go to Jersey, go to get their fire-water, go
to get their red-eyed bug-juice, go to get
their cooking whisky.
Far awav at Minnehaha, in ttie
land of the Dakota where the cy
clone feels so kinky, rising on its active
hind feet, with its tail up o er the dash
board, blowing babies through the grind
stone without injuring the babies, where
the cyclone and the whopper journey on
in joy together there refinement and
frumenti, with the new and automatic
maladies and choice diseases that belong
to the Caucasian, gather in the festive red
man, take him to the reservation, rob
him till he kicks the bucket.
And the Shinnecock is fading, he who
greeted Americus Vespucci when he
landed, tired and sea-sick, with a breath
of peace and onions ; he who welcomed
other strangers, with their notions of re
finement and their knowledge of the
Scriptures and their fondness for Gam
brinus they have compassed his dam
nation and the Shinnecock is busted.

THE OREGON' & CALIFORNIA.
Further Intpi'entiiif News Concern
ing the Oregon & California and
The visit of Col. Chas. F. Crocker, vice
president of the Southern Pacific, to this
country, has excited much comment, and
efforts have been made to find out from
him definitely just what would be the
policy of the Southern Pacific in the
management of the Oregon & California
have been made. In reference to this,
the follow ing from an interview with him
will prove interesting:
The Southern Pacific, said Col. Crocker,
would not take the actual management of
the property until through rail connection
was made. Construction work on both
sloies of the Sisniyous is very heavy,
and it is impossible to fix a date when the
lines will bo united, hut lie thought the
through line would be completed about
the middle of October. The main office
of the company will, of course, be in
San F'rancisco, and general freight and
passenger offices will be established in
Portland, and perhaps an assistant man
ager. It will be the policy of the com
pany to encourage immigration into
Western Oregon, and the Southern Pa
cific will devote as much energy to in
ducing people to settle in this state, as it
had used in drawing settlers to California.
Several excursions will be given from San
Francisco and points south, to Oregon
during the summer, with the object of
showing people a country in which to
make their homes. The Southern Pacific
holds to the idea that the way to build
up a railroad is to build up the country
tributary to it. Their efforts to bring
Eastern people into California have been
remarkably successful, and if Oregon
does not enjoy a boom equal to Califor
nia's it will not, be the fault of the South
With reference to the report that his
company would build from the 0. & 0.,
below Salem, across the Willamette to
Dundee, and enter Portland from the
west side of the river on the line of the
narrow gauge, which wonld be changed
to standard, Col. Crocker said that as
yet the matter had not been discussed by
the directors, and it was a question for
the company's engineers to decide, lie
expects to visit Portland several times
before the line is finished through and
thoroughly familiarize himself with Port
land and Western Oregon.
At the adjourned annual meeting of the
stockholders of the Oregon & California
the following directors were elected : Le
land Stanford, C. P. Huntington. Charles
F. Crocker, Timothy Hopkins, W. V.
Huntington, R. Koeliler, George H. An
drews, Donald Macleay, John Mc
Cracken, R. I. Earhart and W. W.

DISEASE AND DEATH
Force their way into many a household that
might be brotected from their inroads, by the
simple precaution of keeping in the house that
benign family medicine and safeguard of health
Ifoatetter's Stomach Bitters. Particularly where
there are children, should it be kept on hand,
as a prompt remedy for Infantile complaints,
in their outset easily conquerable, but which, if
allowed to engraft themselves on the delicate
childish organism, are not easily dislodged,
and speediiy work grevious mischief. Irregu
larity of the bowels, indigestion aud billious-
ness, are ailments of common occurrence in the
household. Children, living in malarious re
gions, are more liable to be attacked with chills
and fever than adults, aud the ravages of that
fell disease in their system are speedier and
more serious. In remote localities, far from
professional aid, it is especially desirable.

Have you awakened from a disturbed sleep
vi-.h all the horrible sensations of an assassin
clutching your threat and pressing the life
breath from your tightened chest? Have you
noi iced the languor and debility that succeed
the effort to clear your throat and head of this
catarrhal matter? What a depressing influence
it exerts upon the mind, clouding the memory
and filling the head with pains and strange
noises! How difficult it is to rid the nasal pas
sages, throat and lungs of this poisonous mucus
all can testify who are atllicted with catarrh.
How difficult to protect the system against its
further progress towards the lungs, liver and
Sidneys, all physicians will admit. It is 1 ter
rible disease, and cries out for relief ano cure.
The remarkable curative powers, when all
ther remedies utterly fail.ofSaBford's Radical
Cure, are attested by thousands who gratefully
recommend it to fellow sufferers. No statement
is made regarding it that cannot be substanti-
ited by the most respectable and reliable refer
ences. Each packet contains one bottle of the Radi
cal cure, one box of Catarrhal Solvent, and an
improved Iuhaler. with treatise and directions.
