Full Text of the President's Thanks
giving Proclamation Puyallup
It was expected that the vexed ques
tions regarding the Puyallup Indian
reservation at Tacoma would be settled
by the commission which was sent out
thero by an act of the last Congress, but
it seems that this commission has not
done what they were expected to do,
ami the question at issue is as far from
settlement as before. The Indians have
bargained away some of their most val
uable lands. Their lands are needed
for the development of Tacoma as a city,
and they are useless to the Indians, ex
cept for what they can get for them.
The matter of theindividual and tribal
rights of the Indians was supposed to be
determined by the commission, also the
rights of the men who have bargained
with the Indians for their lands, but
the commission's rep ft, now with the
Secretary, is far from satisfactory, and
will be little or no help in aiding him to
make a recommendation to Congress.
The Puyallup matter will have to be
fought all over again this winter.
The full textof the President's thanks
giving proclamation is as follows: It is
a very glad incident to the marvelous
prosperity which has crowned the year
now drawing to a close that its helpful
and reassuring touch has been felt by
all the people. It has been as wide as
our country, and so special that every
home has felt its influence. It is too
great to be the work of man's power,
and too particular to be the device of
his mind. To God, the beneficent and
allwise, who makes the labors of men to
be fruitful, redeems their losses by his
irrace, and tho measure of his giving is
is as much beyond the thoughts of man
as it is beyond his deserts, the praise
and gratitude of the people of
this favored nation are due. Now,
therefore, I, Benjamin I larrison, Presi
dent of the United States of America,
do hereby appoint Thursday, the 20th
day of November, to be a day of thanks
giving to God for the bounties of his
providence, lor the peace in which we
are permitted to enjoy them, and for
ttiff preservation of these institutions of
civil and religious liberty which he gave
our fathers the wisdom to devise and es
tablish, and us the courage to preserve.
Among the appropriate observances of
the day are rest from toil, the renewal
of family ties about our American fire
sides, and thoughtfulnesa towards those
who Hitler lack of the body or of spirit.

A well known local entomologist
shot a male king bird in this vicinity,
and on picking it up was surprised to
find a strange looking beetle crawling
out of its month. This gave the gen
tleman an idea, and on skinning tb
bird, preparatory to mounting, be took
particular pains not to injure the giz
zard. On opening this be found ex
actly what he thought he would a
mate for the beetle. "The fact that I
found one beetle heretofore supposed
to be a stranger to this locality led me
to think that perhaps the bird had
saught both the male and the female,
and I was right.
'This curious incident shows how
little is known even of the fauna of our
own neighborhood. Here I have been
studying beetles for twenty years past,
and have handled ! that time more
than 2.000 species, yet in this strange
manner, ar.u at a time when I least ex
pected it, a new species falls directly
into my hands. This also shows the
variety of food eaten by the king bird,
one of whose favorite morsels is the
common honey bee. These it devours
to such an extent that it has become a
nuisance to beekeepers, who know it as
the 'bee bird' or "eagle fighter. '"-
The Diamond Market.
It was rather an innovation to the old
time jewelers to discover in some of the
leading magazines and newspapers ad
vertisements offering their wares at
prices which strike the casual reader as
being remarkably cheap. One of the
oldest houses in New York, for instance,
has offered to sell diamond rings, which
"are fit for the hand of any lady or gen
tleman in the land." at prices varying
from $55 upward. The high standing of
the houw naturally stamps such an offer
as being sincere an honest, but certainly
most men would be impressed with the
idea that a diamond ring for that amount
of money could not present many points
A slight investigation shows that the
general cheapening agency of machinery
is at work in this branch of trade as in
all the others. What formerly required
the work of a single man for nearly a
day that is, the metal part of the ring
is now stamped out and fitted ready to
receive the stone with a rapidity which
is astonishing. The only cost to be con
sidered is the rent of the machine and
the value of the crude gold. Inserting a
cheap diamond in the surface of the
ring is about all the manual labor in
volved. The journeymen jewelers do
this work with great rapidity, and prac
tically there is verv little cost to the
jewelry firm beyond tlie first cost of the
gold and the diamond. San Francisco

The Paris correspondent of The Lon
don Daily News, telegraphing recently.
said: "A curious attempt to shirk impris
onment by substitution came before the
Paris assizes this afternoon. M. Dubusc,
landlord of a cafe, was sentenced the
other day to forty-eight hours' imprison
ment for having held concerts on his
premises without a license. In France a
defendant who is a householder is not
taken from the court to prison, but is al
lowed a respite of two or three weeks or
a month at his discretion. At the end
of this period he receives a polite letter
from the prison governor requesting him
to call at his earliest convenience in or
der to serve out the sentence.
M. Dubusc during this respite found a
pauper, who had just been discharged
from Nanterre, and induced him to go
to prison for 20 francs. Boislache ,
this was the man's name went off to
the Petite Roquetto, introduced himself
as Dubusc, which name he signed on the
visitors' book, and was locked up in a
celL His- ragged appearance, however,
aroused suspicion, and detection speedily
followed. Boislache was prosecuted for
forgery and M. Dubusc as his accomplice.
The jury, however, acquitted them both."
