Bulwer’s “Pelham** became so popular Im

PROTECT YOUR HOMES!
There are many tribes among the Ameri
can Indians, but year by year their number*
are decreasing. The home of the civilized
and partially civilized remnants of the once
powerful and warlike Indian tribes is known
as the Indian territory, and contains what
are called reservations, on which the various
tribes dwell. Agents representing tho United
States live among these tribes with a view to
their further advancement and protection.
Many of the tribes have settled down in com
parative contentment and follow agricultural
pursuits for a livelihood and have become
quite civilized. Others, from their naturally
fierce and warlike dispositions, continue to
give more or less trouble to the government.
Among the latter may be named the Utes in
Colorado and the Apaches in New Mexico.
Our cut represents a Ute squaw and h*af
papoose, or baby. The Utes are a tribe vl
the Shoshones or Snakes, are migratory in
their habi and great hunters. They enjoy
wandering about the country and are to be
found in New Mexico, Nevada, Utah and
Colorado. When a Ute squaw takes up her
line of march she straps the little pajjoose to
her back. In the cut she is holding the in
fant in her arms, so that our young people
may have a picture of the faces of both
mother and child.
India Ink Impressions of Ferna.

stick of India ink, and a toothbrush. Di*
solve the ink in water—don’t get it in lumps—
and dip your brush in the ink. Do not get
too much on, and- rub in gently along the
comb, holding it over the group of ferns. If
you get too much ink on your brush, it will
fall in big drops; the object is to make them
as fine as possible. Rub more or near the
joints of the ferns, just as in a photograph,
and let the color gradually die away to the

The Elephant as a Num,
In India, where the elephant is treated toy
his owner almost as one of the family, tn*
grateful animal makes a return for the kind
ness shown it by voluntarily taking care of
the baby. It will patiently, say * Ht. Nicho
las, permit itself to be mauled by its little
charge, and will show great solicitude when
the child cries. Sometimes the elephant will
become so attached to its baby friend as to
insist ujNin its constant presence. Buch a
case is known where the elephant went so
far as to refuse to eat except in the presence
of its little friend. Its attachment was so
genuine that the child’s parents would not
hesitate to leave the baby in the elephant’*
care, knowing that it could have no more
faithful nurse. And the kindly monster
never belied the trust rejxised in it. If the
Yjes came altout the baby, it would drive
»way. If the child cried the giant
