The Muroons were the descendants
of African slaves, brought to Jamaica
by the Spaniards. During the conquest
of Jamaica by the English the Ma
roons, deserted by their masters, fled
to the mountain fastnesses, where they
lived a tierce, wild life. Increasing
daily in number by the many deserting
slaves, the Maroons soon became for
midable to their white neighbors, whom
they plundered and killed. In 1738 an
agreement was made which secured to j
thorn an Independence, which they
maintained for 110 years, but the Eng
lish finally determined to exterminate
them and for this purpose pursued
them barbarously with bloodhounds.

A VINDICATION OF
MT. HOOD APPLES
A report having come to the atten
tion of some of the residents cf Mount
Hood that the fruit grown there is
not np to the standard of that grown
in other districts of the valley, Rob
ert Leaauie publishes a lett r below
tlmt thoulrt silence these rumors
The exhibits of applet lon: that dis

to be anfouuded. The letter is as
"It has often been faid, by cert in
parties, that Mount Hoed coi'ld i:ot

amounted to much, but a man in the

clearing lund and setting out trees
and has been writing to parties in
Hood River who told him to be care

man wanted to get some reliabe infor

We will say that any one faying that

somebody else's word for it Such
reports are not. only an injury to
Mount Hood, but to the whole Hood

no truth in such statements, as med

A Liberal K4 aea tloa.
Professor Huxley held thl opinion
as to what constitutes a liberal educa
tion: The mau has a liberal education who
Uob been so trained in youth that bis
body is the ready servant of his will
and does with ease aud pleasure all
the work that as a mechanism It is
capable of; whose intellect is a clear,
cold, logical engine, with all Its parts
of equal strength and In smooth work

to be turned to any kind of work and
upin the gossamers as well as forge
the anchors of the mind; whose mind
Is stored with a knowledge of the great
and fundamental truths of nature and
of the laws of her operations; one who,
no stunted ascetic, Is full of life and
fire, but whose passions are trained to
come to halt by a vigorous will, the
sen-ant of a tender conscience; whs
has learned to love all beauty, whether
of nature or of art, to hate all vileuess
and to respect others as himself. Such
a one, and no other, has had a liberal
Every person's feelings have a front
door and a side door by which they
may be entered. The front door Is on
the street Some keep it always open,
some keep it latched, some locked,
some bolted with a chain that will let
you peep in, but not get In, and some
nail It up, so that nothing can pass its
threshold. This front door leads Into a
passage which opens Into an anteroom,
aud this Into the interior apartments.
The side door opens at once into the
secret chamber. There is almost al
ways one key to the side door. ThU Is
carried for years hidden In a mother's
bosom. Fathers, brothers, sisters and
friends often, but by no means so uni
versally, have duplicates of it The
wedding ring conveys a right to one.
Alas, If none is given with itl Be very
careful to whom you trust one of these
keys ot the side door. O. W. Holmes.

"The Hotel Pelham was the first
French apartment house, or flat, as
they have now come to call them, to be
opened In the United States," said an
old Bostonian. "At that time the late
Dr. DIx,-who owned the property, bad
returned from a European trip, where
he got the Idea. Upon his return he
brought It with him, the 1'elham was
fitted up In that way, aud the Idea has
continued to spread until it bus gone
all over the country. Another thing
that you may have forgotten Is the
fact that the Parker House was the
first hotel in the United States to be
conducted on the European plan. It
was In a Boston hotel, the American
or the Revere I forget just which one
it was that the elevator was first In
troduced." Boston Record.
The Echoes of Easle'a Neat.
The most wonderful echo In the
known world Is that heard from the
Eagle's Nest In the lake regions of Ire
land. The rock known as "Eagle's
Nost" is the most prominent peak to be
found among the heights that surround
the Killarney lakes. Its apex is 1,250
feet above the surface of the water,
and the extraordinary echo Is beard to
the best advantage from a spot 100
feet to the west from an opening called
the Devil's mouth. At that point the
effect of the re-echoed sounds Is abso
lutely startling, the slightest whisper
being repeated as often as 1,000 times.
The rebound Is always clear and dis
tinct and appears to come from the
crags, cliffs and peaks, which surround
the experimenter on all sides.

Do you kuow that we have shoplift'
era in Hood River? Probably you do
not, but the merchants here do. Dur
ing the Christmas shopping there was
quite a good deal of this mode of ob
taining Christmas presents going on
One of the pDces visited was a drug
store, and the articles taken there In
d oate that the "pinoher" or "pin
cb.ee" was a eonnoiseur in selecting
gifts. Among the things taken was a
42 atomizer selected from the midst
of other goods of this character rang
ing in prioe from 1150 to 85 cents. A
purse worth I A 60 was also taken from
this store, although there were cheap
er purses displayed whiob would have
been less easily missed. A card case
is likewise no longer to be invento
ried, neither is there any silver repos
ing in the cash register as its equiva
lent. It will not take a Sheilock
Holmes to discern that it was not a
man who took several boxes of face
powder that are mlssiug, and as this
is a prohibition town, it is not likely
that it was a member of the rougher
sex who pilfered a box or two of head
Another store that was visited was
one in whiob the stock is vailed and
consists of many small articles in the
way of novelties and useful little ar
ticles such as are necessary in every
household. It is next to impossible
to watch a stock of goods of this kind,
and it is ssid that a number of per
sons got their fingers tangled Jup in
the wares on display there. It seems
strange about tbeae attacks of cramp
in the Augers. Borne people are al
most invariably attacked with it (that
is if the clerk isn't looking) on enter
ing a store.
The genteel name for it is klepto
mania and it is said that it i" a very
difficult disease to cure. One of the
most effectual methods of treating it
is to give the person afflicted with it
a very short hair cut and then ban
dage them with a suit of clothes of
striped material This is known to be
an absolute oure for a time, and if
the patient has a relapse the treat
ment is usually oontinued for a longer
