Captain Jack's Hand Returns.
After 30 years of enforced ab
sence the small remnant of Captain
Jack's band of Modoc Indians at
the Quapaw agency in Oklahoma
arc to be removed to the Klamath
reservation in Oregon, where their
friends mid relatives live.
The Modocs remaining in Okla
homa arc but a mere handful 'of
the baud of 317 lusty braves who
were taken from the Klamath reser
vation to Indian Territory in 1874
right afler the Modoc war. Hvcr
since their arrival in the southwest
these Indians have been longing
for their Oregon home. Of the 317
only 49 remain and to of these
have round their way back to Ore
gon, leaving only 39. As a matter
of fact, only 17 of the Indians
originally removed arc livlni'.
There is a pathetic story of genuine
homesickness which has resulted

The next morning, J awoke
early and lying in lied looking out
over tlic sea, witnessed one 01 uic
most beautiful nunrilca I had ever
seen. One hears much about the
wonderful colorings of the Mediter
ranean waters. Well I can testify
that it is all true and more so. 'That
morning Aurora came over the
tons of the mainland mountains
with her cloudy steeds and r'ctmue
and headed straight for tmj,1 wtiile
ttib oncoming light 'cuMcd ' the
shadows over the water changing
itscdlors every moucnt, and in the
background appeared n fircy halo.
I felt like rouMiiK the entire hotel,
but as I had, so to speak, a re
served seat in my luxurious bed, I
feared (0 lose a moment of it or
break' the spell. I do not now
wonder that the ancients in these
regions had their imaginations
keyed up to invent gods and god
desses, and all their fanciful myth
ology. Taormina possesses many inter
esting structures of the Saracenic
times and the Middle Ages. Among
them is an old suppressed convent,
now used as a hotel. It has a
beautiful cloister surrounding a
square court containing a garden,
and on the back side i a terrace on
the rocky cliff overlooking Giardin!
and the ocean, There arc in Italy
a number of these old monasteries
converted into hotels. Where the
old simplicity is maintained they
are quite unique. With a little
cell for a bedroom and a candle
for light, foreigners feel quite
romantic in their mysterious old
buildings and enjoy the novelty,
imagining themselves back in the
olden times.
The town is supplied with water
by a little stone aqueduct, built
over two thousand years ago, which
hugs the cliff in a hand cut recess
and leads to a fountain in the
square or piazza. It is a pretty
substantial irrigation plant and
may well boast that "men may
come and nru may go but I go on
forever." Jt happcus, however, to

Leaving Taormina with its bright
flowers and sunshine, vc returned
to Palermo via Messina and the
northern coast, through historic
country and beautiful scenery all
the way. It was n holiday and the
roads were filled with the fantasti
cal Sicilian carts loaded down with
people in festive attire.
These carts arc exceeding in
teresting to foreigners and arc a
feature of Sicily. Huge two
wheeled affairs, carved, ornamented
and highly painted with bright
pictures illustrating scenes from
the Iliblc, church history, myth
ology, great battles, operas, kings
and rulers and every subject imag
inable. Whether it be a city dray,
a farmer's vehicle, or garbage cart,
it must be decorated like a picture
gallery and the horse or donkey
decked out with gorgeously mount
ed harness and plumes that would
make a circus procession look like
five cents. The saddle of a dray
harness will sometimes weigh 40
pounds, with its brass or nickle
figures that stand from one to two
feet high and arc surmounted by
metal flags or pennants that flop
or revolve like weather vanes with
eacjh step the animal takes. Not
withstanding thisextraordinary out
ward display, the Italians are a
cruel race and mistreat their ani
mals. The horses and donkeys of
southern Italy arc generally small
mere ponies but the way they pull
aud tug ut enormous loads would
make our horses ashamed of them
selves. The Italian has a proverb
that "a good stick makes a good
donkey" and he certainly believes
it. It is nothing unusual to see a
donkey hip high to a man, hauling
a dray with a load four times his
own bulk, but some way or other,

& I'hillips, the men who have-the
stonework in charge, spent heveral
das in the quarry ut the top of
the grade west 01 town before the
actual work of getting out' the
stone bcuan Several men ''were
busy there cleaning o'ut the foot ol

the fragments and uncaven pieces
of Monc so that it ' would be pos
sible to get at the very bottom ol
the stone column that stands in a
perpendicular position After this
had' "been done a quantity of black
powder was placed beneath these
columns and several tons of good
stone were blown out at one shot.
By this method the stone taken
out is in much better condition
than is possible under the old way
If it is possible to find columns of
sufficient length, Mr. Douglass
thinks the stone steps can be made
of single pieces. This would re
quire a slab about 14 feet long and
14 inches wide. Many pieces have
been taken from the quarry already
that are eight or nine feet long and
of sufficient width for the steps

The four dials with plate-glass lace

Saloon Men Will Be dood.
Last Sunday was the first "dry"
day in Lakevtew iu the history of
the town. The fact that the move
ws voluntary on the part of the
saloon men is very commendable.
The saloon men held a meeting
after the election and agreed that,
since 'so many people were opposed
to the saloons, although not in
sufficient numbers to "dry" the
town or county, they would close
their saloons at t'oclock a. m. and
all day Sunday. The new regime
went iuto effect Saturday night nnd
not a saloon iu the town was open,
and their curtains were pulled back
as proof of the good faith of the
movement. This movement will
do much to suppress the evil effects
of the open saloon, and from now
on every provision of the law re
garding the liquor traffic will be
complied with. Since the saloon
men themselves have volunteered
to do this there is no doubt about
their sincerity. Examiner.
Farmers Are Smiling.
Rains have been general through
out Central Oregon during the past
10 days aud crop prospects are good.
The Madras Pioneer says that
every farmer you meet these days
has a wrinkle across the middle of
his face extending from ear to ear,
which he calls a smile. The cause
of all this hilarity is the greatly im
proved crop prospects throughout
this sectiou following the heavy
rain Tuesday afternoon, when for
nearly three hours there was a
steady downpour. The rain was
general throughout the district, and
the slow steady drizzle soaked down
into the the ground, doing thou
sands of dollars worth 6f good to
grain crops ail through this section
One farmer said the grain ap
peared to grow three or four inches
in a night, an a result ol the rain
nnd warm weather, while another
who bar. passed practically over the
entire district, says that the pros
f cts arc good for another big crop
this season. At any rate there Is
general rejoicing al! through the
district. '
100 Allies to Whiskey.
The Dalles is now the only sa
loon town on the O. R & N. Ry.
in Oregon. Shaniko voted "wet"
and will be the1 nearest saloon town
m the north of Silver Lake. Travel
tog west from Silver Lake the
thirsty citizen will find no licensed
.suloon, ahir July 1, this side of
Coos county, and should he veer a
little to the south and miss Coos'
he would have to journey to Hono
lulu or Hongkong to quench his
thirst, for Jackson, Josephine, Cur
ry and Douglas counties have all
Iraardcd the water wag6n. The
nearest saloon town to the south is
Lakevicw, 100 miles away and on
the cast, Burns, 150 miles distant.
Thus tt will be seen that it is at
least 100 miles from Silver Lake
to the nearest whiskey and no
railroads! Surely, Mr. Harriman
will delay no longer Oregonian.

No Humbug
No hunibuc claims have been made
for Foley's Honey and Tar, the welt
known remedy for coughs, colds and
