A tobogganing iil should be as I
nearly perpendicular as possible.

fly with the impetus derived from
its descent. Two or three passen
gers make a load, the lad- or ladies
being placed in front and the
steersman sitting behind. The to
boggan having been placed on the
erge of the precipice, the lady
steps in and sits down with her
ffot on the stretcher, or disposed
in the curve and her skirt tucked
around her, and her escort sits
down behind, having a short stick
in each hand with which to steer.
The steersman lets his hand trail
on either side, and digs one stick
or the other into the snow, accord
ing to the direction in which he
wishes to turn the accursed craft.
It is the correct thing to turn out
out in a blanket coat and lefjinngs,
with moccasins, and upon your
head a red or blue tuque a
Phrygian cap of worsted. Having
bidden adieu to jour friends, you
gently push your frail sled oyer
the brow of the hill and launch
yourself into eternit-. Such of
your readers as has ever fallen out
of a baloon will have a good idea
of the sensation of the amateur to
bogganist during his first slide.
There is a sense of goneness in the
head and the pit of the stomach,
and the nether world rises up and
hits 3ou all over very hard. A
slippery and elastic board with 300
pounds weight upon it, launched
down a hill o ice or snow a quar
ter of a mile long or thereabouts,
with an inclination of say seventy
degrees, gathers a tremendous
headway in the course of a few
seconds; the crisp diamond-dusty
particles fly atyour eyes like spin
drift at sea before a hurricane, and
a spray of shrieking silver is ground
up by either steering stick. In q
few seconds 3011 reach the glacis,
aud change the plane on which
you move, the sled giving a bound
that makes you think of riding a
frisky dolphin; then away it ca
reers for hundreds of yards above
the level, till finally it stops per
haps a mile awafrom the start
ing place, allowing an admirable
opportunity for flirting with your
fair fare during the return walk.
Of a bright, moonlit night, with
the air keen and the heavens over
flowing with stars, there can be no
more glorious sport. But it has
its perils. If you loose your head
and fail to keep that of the tobog
gan straight the sled will broach-to
and spill you and 3'our fare down
the hill, with a display of ground
and lofty tumbling such as Green
wich hill never witnessed on the
jolliest of fair days. Fortunate
will you be if, when you and your
Dulcinca are for the moment
landing on your respective heads,
another toboggan does not sweep
down and take you in your re
spective midriffs with a force of
say 144-foot tons. Or, still worse,
in a longcourse, wkere there are
trees to thread and maybe a gate
or two to pass through, you may
tilt head-on into a post or a state
ly maple. Not until 3ou have
been in such an accident do you
fairly understand what is meant
by "matchwood" and ua dull thud."
Luckily as the lady is in front she
acts as a sort of buffer, but her lot
under sach circumstances is not a
happy one, as before she has fairly
realized that she has . been hurled
against a tree she receives you in
the back with no less crushing
racial la Ifac Family.
We usually leave it to Doctors to
recommend medicines, but Parker's
Ginger To&ic has been so useful in
or family in relieving sickness and
sttSeriBg that wj cannot say too much
i its praise. Salem Argus.
The Other "Way.
The contrarieties of the Chinese,
as compared with us, have often
been commented on. The Kev.
Selah Brown writes about them in
the Christian Advocate. "VVe
shake hands as a salutation; a
Chinaman shakes hands with him
self. He stands at a distance, and,
clasping both together, he shakes
them up and down at -ou. "Wo
uncover the head as a mark of te
spect; they keep their heads
covered, but take ofT their shoes
for politeness. "We shave the
face; they shave the hoad and eye
brows. "We cut our finger nails;
they consider it aristocratic to have
nails from three to five inches
long, which they are obliged to
protect in silver cases. The China
man's waistcoat is outside his coat,
and his -drawers outside his trous
ers. We blacken our shoes; he
whitens them. "We have soup as
a first course at dinner, and dessert
at last; they have dessert at first
and soup at last. "We want our
wines ice cold; the Chinese drink
theirs scalding hot. AVe bury in
the earth; they on the surface.
"With us, black clothing is a badge1
of mourning; with them, white
garments indicate the loss of
friends. In that land of opposites
it is the old men who fly kites,
walk on stilts, and play the shut
tlecock, and, to keep up their odd
ways of doing things, they play
the latter with their feet instead
of with their hands. In China,
women do men's work, and men
are the milliners, dressmakers and
washerwomen. "With us the right
hand is the place of honor; with
them it is the left hand. In dating
letters we place the year last; they
write the year first. They always
speak of the mariner's compass
(their own invention) as pointing
to the south. "We pay our plrysi
cians when we are sick; they pay
while the' are well, but as soon as
they get sick the pay stops. Here
men kill their enemies; a China
man gets revenge by killing him
self. "We use a soft pillow; they a
block of wood. They launch ships
sidewise, ring bells from the out
side, and actually turn their screws
in the opposite direction from
A singular decision, which in
effect sets free a desperate gang of
thieves and burglars that were ar
rested with great trouble, has just
been rendered at Paterson, New
Jersey, where queer affairs are
happening all the time. The gang
found a hiding-place and refuge
on board a canal boat, whose cap
tain shared their plunder. But
when they turned about and robbed
him he had them arrested. The
Judge ordered their acquittal on
the ground or more properly, on
the water that a canal boat was
not a house, unless taken out of
the canal and used permanently as
one. For the sake of shutting up
a gang of marauders, he might
have strained a point, as the jury
did, who brought in a verdict of
"horse stealing" against a man ac
cused of murdering his wife be
cause the law provided only for
manslaughter, and not for woman
slaughter; so, to make sure of
punishing him, they thought horse
stealing would about fill the bill.
A large silver-gray fox was
caught in the foothills near the
Snoqualmie pass trail last week by
a Falls City trapper. The pelts of
these animals are very valuable,
often bringing as high as $50
each. Although they are often
met with on the eastern slope of
the Cascade mountains, they are
seldom if ever seen on the west
"Indians are like children," said
Mr. Kirkpalrick, in recounting his
adventures to a reporter of the
Philadelphia Times, "if you gain
their confidence you can do what
you please with them. I never
made a promise to an Indian that j
I did not keep, and that is why I
made plenty of friends among the
tribes. They like braver-, too,
and will not hurt a man who
shows no fear when overpowered.
When the Indians get you in a
corner, if you stand up and bare
your breast, and tell them to
shoot, they will never do it. I
have had to do that twice in my
life, and so speak from experience:
but I never knew them to kill a
prisoner who defied them."
Another great bridge is in coarse
of construction across the Mis
souri river twenty miles north of
Council Bluffs, Iowa. The winter
weather, though severe, has not
interfered with the work. The
bridge is for the use of the Sioux j
City and Pacific railroad into Ne
braska. When completed it will
have cost nearly $1,000,000. The
piers are iron, the caissons being
filled with concrete masonry, and
are 110 feet high. The super
structure will be of iron, 1,000
feet long, about one-third less
than the Union Pacific railroad
bridge at Council Bluffs. The
masonry and piers will be up by
August 1st, and the bridge will
be ready for use by November
