AMONG THE MUTES.
Carious Muprt Itlonn and Heller Existing
Among the Native of Aluttka.
. A belief in tho presence of evil spirits
constitutes the ouly ' religious idea
among tli'e Mutes. There are among
them individuals called toonrachs, cor
responding to the shaman of the Sibe
rian tribes. If a person is sick before
the whaling season commences, or a I
child is born before going on a journey
or building a-house, the services of the
shaman is called iuto requisition. Tho
modus operandi in every case is simi
lar. The shaman, after a long spell of
silence, suddenly begins to roll his
eyes, convulsive shakos prevade his
frame, and he gives utterance to vari
ous groans and sighs intermingled with

time of his performance a continuous
beating upon a drum is kept up.
Toward the end paroxysms, or rather
convulsions of exultation similar to
what have been described as prevailing
at the finale of a shaker meeting, are
exhibited by the shaman. Froth
exudes from his mouth, his eyes glare
and roll, and his whole frame is con
torted. Perspiration pours from hi

Owing to this insecure mode of burial
the wood soon falls down and affords
entrances to foxes and dogs, which
make havoc with the body. But little

NEW YORK'S HOTELS.
The Capital Invented in the Caravanaerlea
of the Amri Iran Mr,tropoll.
The amount of money invested In
hotel property in New York is vari
ously estimated, but according to a
fair allowanco the land and buildings
are worth f 13.0ob.000 that Is, an
averaged valuation of each piece of
property at $211.1)35.50. Of courso
this amount would be largely in excoss
of the value of more than half of the
regular hotels within the city limits,
but it is also awny below tbe just as
sessment of nearly twenty of the big
hotels now in business. The furniture
in the hotels is estimated as having a
value of $2,000,000, with an average
valuo of $32,259. Several of tho large
houses have expended $250,000 on
their Interior decorations, and three
or four even more than this. All of
these estimates arc pliuied exceedingly
low, yet they show that simply to
build and furnish the good hotels it
required an outlay of $17,000,000. This,
after all. is an "exceedingly small in
vestment when compared wilh the
amount of money required to aco m
modate tho guests.
At the legal rate of interest this in
vestment should return $850,000 a year.
Tt does all this and much more. The
total income of the number bf hotels
mentioned is estimated by good au
thorities as $14,750,000 c. year. How
much of this Is profit Is figured out in
this way: There are accommodations
for nearly 80.0M jvrson in the hotels
rated as respiwtab'.e. Th -e aro at
least two-thirds that number per
sons who are counted upon as regular
patrons. It costs a hotel keeper on
the average about $1.25 a day to feed
and attend to the needs pf ono guest.

of 20-000 would represent an outlay of

nen tnis is auueu to tne interest on
the orginal Investment of $17,000,000,
it brings the total yearly cost, count
ing t e employ ment of servants. which
represents an outlay of $1,362,000 more
up to the respectable total of $11,237,
000. This deducted from the estimated
total receipts gives $3,513,000 as the
profits to be divided bt-tween sixty-two
establishments, and would be an ex
cellent chance for capitalists to go right
to work and pile up more capital with
the rapidity aud persistency of the
Sueh profits would easily explain the
reasons for the great number of big
new hotels In contemplation or already
under way. But, unfortunately, when
the noses of the guests of a big New
York hotel are counted, they don't
always mean a weekly or monthly set
tlement of the bill. The number of
"hotel beats," despite all tho precau
tions taken to detect them and to avoid
giving them credit, is a matter which
is exceedingly grave to the hotel pro
prietors. There are at least a thou
sand persons who practically live upon
the hotlpropi-ietors of .this city. Not
the same ones all the while, of course,
but the loss represents the loss of the
board of thnt number of individuals.
This at once makes an Inroad into the
big profit of $1,095,000 at an average
of three dollars a day. Then come the
breakages in dishes and the invest
ment in new cutlery, which in a prop
erly managed, house amounts at the
average to $5,000 a' year. This draws
another $310,000 from the profit: and
then come the thousand and one other
items of expenditure gas, coal, dam
age to . furniture, and the like which
run up to the big total of $1,026,000 a
year, and again- pare the profit down,
leaving it in the neighborhood of f 1.
082,000 to be divided among the sixty
, two otels, giving each an average
profit, subject to still further drains,
of $17,453. When one considers that
this profit has to be divided in most
cases among three or four partners,
the little hotels are not coiners of
money, and the student of finance as

two years sro, after having been sick f

THE POWER OF GAB.
How It Advances tha Schemes of .Loud-
"Talk la cheap," affirm one of the
practical proverbs of the day. We beg
to differ. Talk is not cheap; it Is - aa
expensive commodity, and too often m
commodity of little value. The ability
to express one's thoughts in a concise.
ritelliihle and effective manner, is a
valuable - accomplishment, but . the
rhetorical art of making a spread
eagle speech. with one grain of sense te
ten of superficial bombast, can almost
be rated as a vice. Many a man
has elevated himself ' to a re
sponsible position of public trust
with no fitness for the proper
!s hargo of his. dutios. But he could
make a nice speech, be could shake up
his auditors' with some side-splitting
anecdote, or melt them to tears by re
citing some pathetic incident No one
stopped to inquire whether in the man
agement of his own affairs he was a
success or a failure. Nobody carefully
considered whether the ideas he ad
vanced were sensible or practical. He
could sway an audience and that was
considered a conclusive test of his
ability. Isn't this a fair presentation
of the manner in which we select men
to administer our public affairs? A
man of admitted executive ability who
has made a success of his own business,
but has no rhetorical gifts, will stand no
show against the mealy-mouthed candi
date who has failed in every thing he
hat tried to do. but who can talk.
Talk is cheap, is it? Look over the
records of Congress and see what it
costs the country to print and publish
the useless talk, talk, talk that .binders
useful legislation and serves no better
purpose than to advance the personal
interests of ambitious politicians. The
country has to pay for all this talk, at
a big round price, too, but tbe man who
bas been sent to Congress had to furnish
his constituents some evidence of his
great value, and nothing is more con
clusive than a long-winded speech.
Great is the gift of gab.
