What promised to be tho dreariest
Fourth of July In my Ufa ended In be
ing one of the most amusing. I was
sent to tho Indian country on Milk
river, Montana, to deliver some annu
ities, and had to wait several weeks
for the Indians to come In from their
The Asslnlbolne Indians came strag

huDK around axj camp wtlh undis
guised curiosity. I had a headache,
and took a quart bottle of ammonia
from my medicine cheat and sniffed
at the cork. I knew bow to mystify
the Indians, and I did a couple of side
steps, rolled my eyes, Jerked my body,
and pointer my finger to the cardinal
points before taking the dose.
The Indians were delighted at my
pantomime of war medicine. I told
them that whoever took that medicine
could never be killed In war, but that
I was afraid they would Join forces
with the Sioux and tight against me
If I gave them that dose. I knew
them to be the greatest foes of the
BIoux, but of course I had to U
coaxed into giving away my wonder
After much persuasion finally
agreed to do it, but bargained that
It must not be taken in the presenco
of others. It was so powerful that
no novice could take the white man's
wjedlclne with others watching him.
Of course that made a hit with the
Indians at once, and there were many
volunteers to be number one.
I selected the chief. He walked Into
ay tent, and I began my mysterious
passes at him. In the meantime I
had two quart bottles before me. One
contained water and the other am
nesia. I made him understand that
at th end of my speech, when I clap
ped my hands, be was to take a deep
breath and inhale the war medicine
a soon as I removed the giasa stop

Tkea I dapped my hands, pulled the
cork, and thrust the ammonia under
the chiefs note. He took a long,
deep breath aa directed, and fell back

on the Indian' sense of humor.

MAKIHO BOMAW CANDLES.
iNdlapeuaabt Adjuncts to
Fourth of Jnljr.
In America tho manufacture of flro
works has become almost a fine art.
and no doubt the youth of our country
could find this sort of expression for
their patriotic enthusiasm on tho
Fourth of July without drawing on the
products of foreign Ingenuity. A
glance at the catalogue of any ono of
the twelvo or fifteen large Ann en
gaged in making fireworks In this
country discloses almost endless lists
Ertrr ono know what a Tloman
candle is, but few know how this In
dispensable adjunct of a Fourth of
July celebration Is made. First of all
in the making comes the paatoboard
cylinder, which Is plugged up at one
end with clay. After the clay comes
a small charge of powder. Then a
"star" la pushed down tight on the
I powder, and charges of powder and
star aiternaio until tne cylinder Is
filled. Then a fuse Is attached which
communicates with the powder near
est the top of the cylinder, which,
when it is exploded, sends lta star
sailing upward. A fuse running
through the candle connects other
charres of nowder with the tint and
explodes them one at a time, each ono

The stars are tuado of chemical mix

sometimes made by mixing four part
of dry nitrate of strontla and fifteen
parts of pulrerlicd gunpowder Cop
per filings chango tho color to green,

New York ITtrce. special customs
officers from Washington aro spending
tho sultry month of Juno In quiet wa
terfront observations at the docks in
Manhattan and Ilrooklyn at which

which they Import.
Tho duty amount to U cent a
pound, but tho government gives a re
bate for the proportion of tho fruit on
each shipment that is deemed unfit for
consumption and which tho importer
aro supposed to destroy. The Investi
gators havo been trying to team
whether the estimate of decayed fruit
is overestimated whon tho duties are
collected The proportion of decayed
fruit ha been unusually largo of late,
according to tno custom returns. On
many shipment from 26 to 30 per cent
of the cargoes havo been reported a
unfit and rebates to that extent havo
been given tho Importer.
Tho Importers lay that the Increased
proportion of decayed lemons from
Sicily I duo to unfavorablo weather
affecting the crop in Sicily. They lay
that zoalous California lemon growers
made tho complaint which were the
immediate cause of the Inquiry. The
California growers, It Is said, aro try
ing to put an end to tho giving of re
bates. If this could Ikj done they
would then put up tho prlco of lemon.
