B? MAIL AND TELEGRAPH-
Gch. Crook Endorsed.
Washington, May 9 ."War
department officials do not share
the apprehension manifested in
recent telegrams from Arizona and
Texas, that Gen. Crook's com
mand has been defeated by rene
grade Indians whom he has pur
sued into Mexico. No reports
have been received at the depart
ment from General Crook, and the
greatest confidence is reposed in
his ability, even with -comparatively
a small force, to successfully
route the enemy. It is reported
that the engagements in the Sierra
Madre mountains, between the
Mexican troops and Indians, re
sulting in the defeat of the latter,
is a source of some chagrin to army
officials. They are delighted that
the renegades have been punish
ed, but it was hoped that the Uni
ted State3 troops might, on this
occasion, be the first to administer
a lesson to the raiders. Of late
years the Mexicans have been
most successful in the work of
exterminating these ferocious sav
ages. Late dispatches from "Washing
ton have given the impression that
Gen. Crook has in some way vio
lated the contract between the
United States and Mexico in
crossing tbe border, and that the
war department has repudiated
the general's action. Several dis
patches have intimated that a
court-martial awaits General Crook
on his return. It is learned in the
war department that Gen. Crook
has in no respect, as far as known,
exceeded the terms of the con
tract between the United States
and Mfexico, whereby troops of
each country are permitted ;to
cross the border in pursuit of
savage Indians. The pursuing
party are, by the terms of the con
vention, to remain on the soil of
the adjacent nation till the trail is
lost or a decisive battle fought.
The main object in requesting a
new convention is that the old one
will expire in August and there is
danger that it may adjourn before
a new engagement can be contrac
ted. Timber Laud Decision.
"WASiHNGT03May 9. Secreta
ry Teller rendered a decision to
day, in which he holds that the
act of June 30, 187S, which per
mits the sale at the minimum
price of 2.50 per acre of lands
valued principally for their timber
and unfit for cultivation, does not
apply to timber lands which may
be rendered susceptiblo to culti
vation, by ordinary' farming pro
oesses. Such lands, the secretary
says, are not within the purposes
of this act. It is the intention to
embrace within its provisions tim
bered tracks only on broken or
rugged mountainous districts,
with soil unfit for ordinary agri
cultural purposes, when cleared of
vThy flo Animals Need Salt?
Professor James E. Johnston, of
Scotland, says: "Upward of half
the saline matter of blood (57 per
cent.) consists of common salt, and
this is partially discharged every
day through the skin and kidneys.
The necessity oE continued sup
plies of it to the healthy body be
comes sufficiently obvious. The
bile also contains soda (one of the
ingredients of salt) as a special and
indispensable constituent, and so
do all the cartilages of the body.
Stint the supply of salt, therefore,
and neither will the bile be able
properly to assist digestion, nor
the cartilages to be built up again
as fast as they naturally waste. It
is better to place salt where stock
can have free acess to it, than to
give it occasionally in large quan
tities. They will help themselves
to what they need if allowed to do
so at pleasure; otherwise, when
they become 'salt hungry,' they
may take more than is wholesome."
irkcR Ladles are Attractive.
All ladies know their faces are
most attractive when free from pim
ples. Parker's Ginger Tonic is popu
lar among them because it banishes
impurities from blood and skin and
makes the face glow with health.

Among the Seminoles.
The Seminole Indians,who have
quietly retreated as civilization
advanced since the days of the
disastrous wars, when they ex
hibited a courage worthy of a
noble race in the presence of the
United States soldiers superior to
them in numbers, are going the
way of all savages before the
strides of civilization. There are
probably 300 or 400 of them, and
they wander in small tribes, each
of which has a chief. They all
owe allegiance to one great Tulla
hassa, but there is little or no
government. They live an entire
ly useless life. Chief Tallahassa
raises a little sugar cane and corn,
but he is the only member of the
tribo who makes any attempt at
agriculture. The rest live by
hunting and fishing. They cap
ture alligators, otters, bears, deer
and other game, and sell their
skins; but they spend most of the
money they get for whisky.
They are small in stature, pure
copper color, with more regulalry
formed features than their sturdier
brethren of the north. The dress
of a brave is a breech clout and an
ordinary calico or check shirt.
Their head-gear is wonderfully
picturesque. A brightly colored
shawl is carefully folded and
pressed out flat, and then coiled
into a turban a foot or more in
diameter. Fancy feathers and
other ornaments are placed in the
turban, which is worn like a Turk's.
Its bright colors and curious
shade suggests a coincidence in
taste with Mexican and Peruvian
Indians. The squaws are exception
ally pretty and petite. The- are
lighter in color than the braves,
and are very coy and modest in
the presence of a white man, prob
ably because they seldom see
them. They wear two garments,
a short calico skirt, which covers
only a portion of their brown well
shaped limbs, and a very contract
ed jacket, which barely covers
their prettily shaped bosoms.
They wear all sorts oi orna
ments, alligator teeth, curious
bones, wild hogs' teeth, and cheap
jewelry, which the brave pur
chases in the town before he be
gins drinking. Like all Indian
women, they do nearly all the
drudgery, but the braves are gen
erally kind to them. The children
are delicate-looking little things,
but the papooses are really beau
tiful babies. These Indians go
from place to place in a cypress
dug-out, which is wider than the
regular Indian canoe, and which
they usually row instead of pole,
owing to,the fact that the water in
this country is deep. ' They do
not do away with the pole entire
ty, however. An Indian in the
bow of the boat rows one oar, and
another sits in the stern with a
pole, with which he rows and
steers. The sharply cut dug-out
glides quietly through the water,
the speed being quite wonderful.
The boats go 300 miles into Lake
Okeechobee, and a Florida Indian
is as happy in one as he is on
shore. Corr. JPhiladclpIiia Press.
The Siuslaw river, flowing in a
westerly course, empties into the
Pacific ocean in latitude 43 deg.
3S min. north. Its principal trib
utaries are the North Fork and
Lake creek, both of which enter
from the north. The former en
ters below the head of tide water,
and the latter seven miles above
and are nearly equal in size to the
mam stream at their junction.
Tide water extends up the Sius
law twenty-five miles, and the
volume of water flowing in at the
head of tide, is about 3,000 cubic
feet per second. The width of
the river at the mouth is .one-third
of a mile. Passing up stream, the
channel gradually widens for four
miles, forming a small bay, three
fourths of a anile wide. Thence it
gradually narrows to the head of
tide water, where it is thirty rods
wide. The channel is free from
mud flats or drifts and is confined
within smootfe, permanent banks.
The average depth of water, in
the dfst'ance('6f "twenty-five miles
of tide water, is forty feet, and
there is but one point where the
depth is less than twenty feet.
This point is situated fifteen miles
up stream from the mouth, and
here fourteen feet of water are
found at low tide, or twenty feet
at high tide. At the mouth of the
river, on the bar, there are thir
teen feet of water at low tide, or
from eighteen to twenty feet at
high tide. The distance from
deep water inside, to deep water
outside the bar, is very short, only
about five hundred feet. The en
trance is peculiarly easy, from the
fact that the channel extending
from deep water to deep water,
runs out to sea at right angles
to the line of the breakers, so that
a vessel in entering is not thrown
sideways to the breakers and con
sequently not in danger of being
beached. The character of the
country along this river is moun
tainous and densely covered with
forest and undergrowth. Immedi
rtely along the river and its tribu
taries, there are numerous small
level valleys or bottoms of the
most fertile soil, suitable for the
production of fruit, vegetables and
the cereals. The hills are all of
sufficient fertility to subserve
grazing purposes, and there are
many good locations for dairies to
be found, when the country is
