whole donetrn I more or let of

thing characteristically French about

find the celebrated Egyptian Village

are many, contain wares chiefly ol
Oriental character for xale, anil theii
buiinesi cigns Indicate that theii
owners are (to us) very foreign.
Here comes a crowd thronging up
thri narrow atreet. It Is a marriage
party, or rather the Imitation of one.
The attendants are numerous and
rather noiny in the way of iiiunIc
The camels are gorgeously arrayed,
and the ''bride" is seated In a sedan

so much so In fact that some people
say that a rather handsome Egyp

a blushing bride. Presently the pro
ccNiIon halts and n couple of swords
men have duel in which, after a
while of fencing, they do a tremen
dous amount of clanging of steel tn a
most expert and rapid manner. We
need follow the procession no longer.
Here Is an Egyptian dance hall
where solitary performers are sup
posed to be keeping time to the mu
sic more by the movements of the
arms bands (which hold little bells)
and by the contraction and relaxa
tion of the muscles of the body than
by their feet. We are told that the

almost believe the mummies of the
old tyrants are before us. Some re.
Ilglous singing and dancing are here
too one dance being that performed
at the rising of the sun and Is very
lmpresrlve. A couple or more for
tune tellers liave their oftlces near
the temple ami seem to be retailing
the mysteries of the future or olnerv-
lng the palms of the dupes who pay
the ncceary fee for their curiosity.
The weather the day we are there Is
very cold and it is almost pitiful to
see the bookkeepers almost freezing
ovr-r tlieir wares.
Outside, we find ourselves passing
the gigantic Ferris w heel, so stately
in Its revolutions, and entering the
village of tho American Indians
where characteristic dances are going
on. One fine looking young chief Is
really a most attractive fellow. On
conversing witn him after the per
formance we learn that he Is the
head of the Tottawatomle people,
lie is gorgeously painted and feath
ered, but is a very intelligent and
jolly young fellow. lie sayi that
two nights ago he put on lots of
style oh his attending the dance of
nations at which every onlooker had
to pay M.
Next on the same side of the Mid
way ia the Chines theater, where
they are making a most discordant
noise. We enter and find things In
tensely Chinese the dresses of the
performers being very flashy and re
minding us very much of colored
pictures of these eople. Slelght-of-hand
performing is a prominent part
of the entertainment. See ' that
young Juggler making signs that he
will make a glass of colored liquid
pans from under one hat to another.
Twice he fails. He replaces the hat
and goes down on his knees and
imitates praying. Now he Jumps up
and lifts the hats ami lo! the glass I
found under the desired hat. Near
the theater Is a Chinese temple w here
you see Joss and a lot of flue wax
figures appropriately attired. We
get In the restaurent a cup of very
excellent tea infuaed In tbe cups
from which we drink It.
Next Is an ostrich farm which you
can enter If you Uke. This and
an exhibit of real St. Bernard dogs is
Beyond is the veritable hut of that
famous Sioux Indian Sitting Bull.
We enter and find it full of Indian
relics and Inhabited by two cowboy
looking whites and two dignified
looking Indians. The latter are
Black Dog and Raln-ln-the-Face who
n starred General (ister. One of
the whltea explains all about the
killing of Sitting Bull and his boy
Crowfoot, showing us the spot of the
latter'a death; and then gives the
of the two Indiana prant, v-
clal!y that of Italn-ln-the-Face,
who sits as If he was totally Indiller
ent to everything that was being
iild about him. He has plaited
some sweet gnus and we buy It from
him as a relic, also we purcha.! a
photo of him and get him to w rite
his name ncroi the back of it w hich
he does in a e hool-boy hand rather
slowly and with evidently more ef
fort than he would scalp an enemy.
Nearly opposite Is the Duhorueyan
Village w hich we enter and see the
habits of Its .eople. They are just
niggers, but mure degraded than any
we have evor seen. One fellow-
struts about clad In a very short
straw petticoat, some course kind of
a shirt and a hat made of bark orna-
meuted with shells. He is evidently
a dude by his actions. On walking
along tho huts we see the cooking,
crunching of corn between stones,
etc all very urimltive. Here. too.
we And some of the men engaged in
smith work, etc. The young fellow
as he replaces his Iron In the fire
amuses tliu onlixikciis by saying:
"Chicago inati lieer," ami with a
sweep 01 his left hand he indicates
how rorpurent the stomach of the
Chicago man is. This he frequently
rejieats as It evidently pleaxes him to
see the people enjoy his Joke. We
are not very much charmed with the
dancing which Is very monotonous
when It Is not wild characteristic
enough of the people we suppose,

To Mr. M. W. Bruce, wilh tin
help h Horded by our government,
belongs the distinction of starting
the first, rcindtn. station of Arctic
Alaska a lit tin over a year ago. A
few years previous to thU Dr. Jack
son aud N. W. Anthony demonstrat

Thcset wo gentlemen whobrought six
teen of these animals over from Si

rect, with the help of others Impor
tuned congress for an appropriation to
carry on this giod work. Under the
direction of Mr. Bruc.t ftJ.i'O) were
expendisl in purcliitsitig a herd of
reindeer iu Sils-ria and traniortlng
them to Alaska. Hen they thrived
well on the native nuxvt and In
msed about fifty er cent.
But a herd of a few hundred Is in
mi (tic lent to meet the wants of the
fifteen or twenty thousand people
that must depend aliuont entirely on
this' useful Mulmul for clothes and
food; and further generosity 011 the
part of our government should pro
vide the means for the. transportation
ami purchase of nioro reindeer.
These people of the Arctic regions do
not want blankets, clothing pans and
kettles of us. Oive them plenty of
reindeer that they may have the
meat for food and the skins to keep
them warm. This, only, Is their
mnte appeal to us.
Men tn the pursuit of wealth have
robbed these people of their natural
means of sulwlstence. The whale
has been driven still further back by
whaling vessels, and the Esquimaux
must go five or six hundred miles for
a mere chance to obtain whale meat.
The walrus, too, has been either
niarly exterminaled or driven away.
This animal is of little commercial
value to whalers, but Is ot great use
to the oor Esquimaux. The ivory
obtained from the ttisks forms their
implements, provides their only
method of H'tcariiig game in fact,
constitutes tlieir all. This ivorv is
not only valuable to them, but the
skin of the walrus and even the in
testines aie deftly utilized.

At tho first entrance of the revenue
cutter, the Bear, Into these Arctic
waters the Esquimaux wi re found In
famishing condition and were sub
sisting entirely on their dumb
menus, me iogs. mo licar gave
them hard tack and flour bought by
private collection among the offi
cers. 1 inly one wtiale was cauelit
last year on that coast. In former
years whalebone was tho principal
commodity. On an average a whale
contains from 1200 to 2000 pounds of
bone, selling for about six dollars per
pound. The w hales wero formerly a
source of considerable wealth but are
now of the past.
Last winter for five months or
more these EVquimaux lived solely
on fish only five or six inches long.
These were their only means of sub
sistence except their dogs. To ob
tain the fish a hole was drilled or!
punched, by means of tho ivory wal

Tho magultlclent canvass made by

results of 82 years of protection on
the one side and the gloomy ttf.cts
of H months of threatened free trade

for American Industry, Amtrican
labor and tho American home. How
could It be otherwise? Never In the
ii'oni,iuic history of our nation have
the wisdom of j rotcUlon and tl
folly of free tmdo Un so clearly
brought bfon the people. Never

Does not every dollar's worth ol

This Is one of those profound con
undrums that the secretary of agri
culture tried lo solve at the congresf
of agriculture recently held In Chi
cago. We do not Ivelteve that any
schoolboy would ask such a question.
Tire protective tariff has nothing
whatever to do with the exports ol
the country. The quantity of grain
that w ill "leap to go out" de-iends
entirely upon the crops in other
countries as well as our own In fact
upon the question of supply and con
sequent demand. The pro'ectlve
tariff, Mr. Morton, is to keep out
from this couutry things that arc-
grown or manufactured in other
countries, and which we, otir-clves.
are ahle to crow or manufacture.

the raw and crude materials which
enter Into manufacturing wools.
The hair of the camel and goat,
butumlnous coal, Iron ore, lumber,
salt, silver, lead ore, flax, hemp and
and Juim, and a large number of chem
icals will all 1-e free. Woolen and
linen manufactures w ill also get the
benefit of an extension of time from
three to six months to work off the
finished products. Steel rails will
probably lie Is or $9 per ton. Pig
Iron will ls put at 56 ad valorem,
and bar iron will lie reduced at least
Tin-plate will be charged I cent

cutlery are abolishes! and an nd
valorem duty substituted. Block tin
and copper oro are on the free list,
and there Is a uniform ad valorem
duty ujion finished manufactures of
wool, but loge are free.
The committee lelieve a reduction
of front 60 to 100 percent. In silk
duthsj will yield as much revenue as
now. Woolen goods will follow tho
rates in the Springer bill, but some
goods, es ecially cloth, will be put
In a separate class at 30 per cent.
This includes hosiery manufactures.
Flax, In nip and Jute will be greatly
reilucisl in view of placing the raw
material on the free list. Binding
I wine is likely to be made free. The
high duties on agricultural products
wiil be mercilessly slaughtered. The
duty will be retained on lemons and
oranges, but several other fruits will
go tisin thj" free list. The wrappe r
tobacco duty will be reduced to tl or
tl.ol when untemmed, and 60 cents
iii'if' a pound when stemmed. An
