entitled to about twenty-two school sec

about 102,4)0 acres for settlers. Mr.
Hermann stated to the Secretary that

adjustment of allotments and the subse
quent proceedings that people seeking
homes in his State may have this further
opportunity to acquire them.

Judge Lambert Tree of Chicago; Henry
W. Cannon, President of the Chase Na
tional Bank of New York, formerly
Comptroller of Currency, and Senator

member of the former international
monetary conference. Cannon is a well
known financier, who has had experi
ence not only as head of one of the larg
est banks of the country, but also as the
official head of the national banking sys

the silver question from the days when
he swung a pick as a pioneer silver miner
in Nevada down to the present time,
when his Senatorial associates accord
him a foremost place as an authority on
silver. Senator Jones' speech on free
silver in the Fifty-first Congress is re
garded as one of the most valuable expo
sitions of the silver question from a free
coinage standpoint in recent years.

Two Methods of Cleaning; Pearl.
The susceptibility of pearls, even of
the purest quality, to become yellow
and smutty in color by absorbing in
spiration from continued wearing in
the hair, around the neck, on the arms,
etc., or tlirough exposure or age is well
known, and though the major portion
of our readers are familiar with some
methods by which pearls so affected
may have their original brilliant color
restored, the following receipt will
prove a useful addition to the work
shop knowledge of many.
Boil the pearls for about fifteen min
utes in fre h cow's milk, in which so.tp
has been dissolved; then take them
out, rinse them in clean water ard dry
with a clean wliite cloth. Inspect them
to see if the desired results liave been
obtained; if not repeat the method
several times. If they still have not
been unproved try the following: Have
a neighboring baker make for you a
smaU loaf of bread, in which before
the loaf is baked lay the pearls, either
strung upon a silk thread or closely
wrapped in a piece of gauze; then let
the bread be baked pi-r-tty thoroughly
not to brown. 1: -..over. When the
loaf is withdrawn from the oven let it
cool, then break it and take out the
pearls, which will generaUy be found
satisfactory and handsomely white.

A Dog's Intuition.
An Auburn man thinks just twice as
much of dog intelligence now as ho did
a week ago. He owned a dog and had
tired of him and had agreed to trans
fer him to a friend who lives in the
south part of the city. He took him
in his arms, tied a rubber coat over bis
head and carried him down and deliv
ered him. It was a long distance and
he had no idea that the dog would ever
show up again about his own premises.
That night on reaching home the dog
lay in his accustomed place on the rug,
while the Auburn man's wife wore a
curious smile of amusement. The co
nundrum in the family is: How does a
dog know the way home? One thing
is now quite certain that the dog can
stay where he is as long as he wants to.
