There Is Ko Doubt About the Fact, as
She States It, That tho Tea Jacket Is
a Most Fetching Garment, and Hero
Ar Pictures to Prove It.
New York, Oct. 23. I shall expect
now to be canonized. I know that I
have long deserved it, but I hope that
tho reward of my merits will come now
as a just recognition of the gathering to
gether of six perfect and beautiful tea
jackets. Tea jackets are taking the
place of tea gowns, which are usually
pretty costly, and while usually beauti
ful and graceful can never be quite bo
popular as the handy tea jacket.

silk, with the sleeves of cream colored
guipure tyud smoothly over green silk.

sailor knot with loose ends and without
a bow. In case of cool weather tho V
shaped neck can bo filled in with a vest
or a collar and chemisette front.
Fig. 3 is made of heliotrope and
white striped surah, opening quite half
way down, to bo worn over a white silk
or pique vest. The sleeves and collar
are of plain heliotrope faille, and a bias
band of the same goes around tho entire
basque, odgod by narrow silver braid,
and tho front is fastened by a ribbon
bow. The rovers are mado by overlap
ping a triangular piece as in the illus
tration. This can be worn with skirts
of any color but red or blue.
Fig. 4 is made of salmon pink surah,
with loose fronts, which are garnished
with cascades of cream lace. Tho sleeves

can also bo made in any color or any soft
material. In garnet surah it would be
very pretty and useful. Black lace over

Fig. 5 is a tea jacket of sago green
barege, which is ns soft and flexible as
veiling, edged with an embroidered ruf
fle, tho color being myrtle green, with
tiny pink specks of ilowers. A glance
at tho picture will show the style better
than a description could. If desired, a
full bow of narrow satin ribbon just tho
shade of tho flowers can be worn on tho
right shoulder where the ruffle laps.
This can bo worn with any colored sldrt
excrpt blue orange or purple. It can
bo made of cashmere veiling, surah or
farmer's satin, which is very pretty ma
terial and considerably used.
Fig. 6 is as suitable for a corsage
for a dinner dress as a tea jacket If it
is to bo used as a tea jacket the fasten
ing of tho sleeves should bo lot out so as
to lengthon them, and tho sash should
bo loosened. Tho body of it is of mauve
and white foulard, edged around with a
deep flounco of cream whito lace, and
tho sash is of surali. The cascade and
collar match that of tho sleeves and
waiht. Tho wholo is vory pretty and
dressy, and adapted thus to several cos
tumes and needs. Worn over a quite

A skirt of CMfrhmero or black silk, or,
indeed, ainioet any material or color,
can be utilized by the aid of these pretty
tea jackets, and a variety of gowns niay

Challies, veilings and cashmere tea

The apparatus, as installed at naming

whereby the air is drawn from the pipe, a

projecting ledge underneath. On one side
of the shoulder of the pail is the nozzle
which Iihs been referred to, and on the
opposite side are four similar nozzles, all
of which are hko the small connections
upon the iron pipe. The solitary nozzle is
for attachment to the long flexible tube
from the iron pipe, the other four are for
short lengths of tubing connected In their
turn with specially constructed teat cups,
each of which receives a teat of the cow
under operation. The cups, like the paiL
are made of tinned Iron, and each one is
provided with a tap or stop cock. The
milk pail has, in addition to its handle, &
couple of hooks, by means of which it is
suspended a little in front of the cow's ud
der, a broad band of girthing being laid
across the animal's loins for the purpose.
The modus operandi is very simple.
When all is ready the pump is worked by
a lad, and the air is thus exhausted from
the iron pipe. Then a pail, with its cups
attached, is adjusted under the cow, the
long tube is joined to one of the connec
tions overhead, the stop is opened, anda par
tial vacuum is established within the paiL
Next one of the cups is moistened and
placed so as to embrace a teat. The stop
cock of the cup 13 then opened, tho teat is
thus brought under the influence of the
vacuum, and the greater external atmos-

The animals submit very quietly to this
novel method of milking, and after the
first time they appear to be scarcely con
scious that they are being deprived of their
milk. The apparatus, indeed, promis to
relieve cows of much of the distress which,
under existing circumstances, seems inev
itable. Its use will obviate thcexcruciating
r pain that animald with chapped or swollen
teats must necessarily suffer when milked
by hand. Moreover, its employment will
injure much greater cleanliness m the
operation of milking, a benefit of at least
as much importance to the consumer as to
the producer. One attendant can conven-
I lently keep half a down cows going. By
the time the adjustment has been made

' have finished milking, and her pail can be
taken for the seventh cow, and so on. To
maintain the vacuum a few strokes at the

Ben "Wlttick, a well known photog
rapher of Albuquerque, N. M., has been
visiting friends in Minneapolis, and to
him The Minneapolis Journal is indebt
ed for a most interesting and accurate
account of the Nava-Supai3 of the Supai
canyon. Some time ago he went to New
Mexico, settling at Albuquerque. Being
a man of adventurous turn of mind he
took a trip up the canyon and located
the tribe in the narrow, valley like in
closure between the mighty walls of
the Supai canyon. Supai is a name
which Mr. Supai gave the canyon him
self after having made & trip to the re
gion. On reaching the canyon he found the
Indians in the midst of a marvelously
fertile valley, diminutive as it is, where
all sorts of grains and fruits grow in
rank profusion, where there are splendid
climatic influences nearly the twelve
month through, and where all that tends
to build up physical powers Is at hand.
He made investigations, too, into their
language, their rites and ceremonies,
their legends, and into all the phases of
their present and past history possible,
and he is confirmed in the belief that
they are in no way allied to the Aztecs.
He says, on the contrary, that as far as
can be ascertained they are allied to the
AN ISOLATED 7EIBE.
The tribe is a most singular one. Their
valley home has on either side great
ledges of rocks running up in benches
thousands of feet. In the valley are
groves of cottonwood trees, and a luxu
riant vegetation is seen on all sides.
There are about 245 or 230 in the tribe of
the Supai. They live absolutely alone.
They do not intermarry with other
tribes, neither do they mix with the scat
tering white peoplo of the regions round
about. When they are in need of forage
or food outside of that which they can
get in their own rich valley they sally
out, make their trades or purchases and
return home. They aro monogamists,
every man having one wife and no more.
They do not live in a communal form
either, but preserve the family in its in
tegrity. The men are a little above the
average height, they are strong and
active, and they are noted for their skill
in climbing the mountains and in bring
ing down the game they need. They are
very shy and suspicious of Indians from
other tribes, nnd it is only by the most
careful and adroit means that a white
man can approach them and gain any
information as to their life. The women
are smaller in stature, very fond of
adornment and given to fantastic deco
rations of their faces.
The Supai Indians appear to bo far
above many other tribes in morals.
They look with Bcorn upon any one who
asks them questions as to their married
relations, holding that this ia no one's
business but their own, and the fact that
the woman of the tribe who goes wrong
is subjected to tho most pronounced
neglect, and generally is put out of the
way. is pretty good proof that they are
possessed of a sort of simple, heroic vir
tue. PHYSICAX. CnABACTERISTICS.
Mr. Wittick found eleven of the men
totally blind. He believes this to be
duo to the splitting of the arrows when
the bows were stretched too taut. Some
of the women who would be seen sitting
barefooted in front of their thatched
roof houses have tho most peculiar big
toes that ever were seen on a human be
ing. The toea were not so very large,
but they were of abnormal width at the
ends. In some ca?es the big toe would
be an inch and a half broad at the end
and very flat and thin. When Mr.
Wittick and his party entered the canyon
they found the Supai very gentle and
hospitable in thpir aboriginal way, but
very reticent at the same time.
Proceeding down the canyon through
the fertile valley, along which was a
slender stream of never failing water,
the purest and sweetest in tho land, they
reached a magnificent waterfall, where
the silver stream plunges over a preci
pice 207 feet in height, and falling in a
stream of the rarest banty down to the
pool below. Cottonwood trees wero
felled. Lashed together and a ladder
made in sections, the whole seventy-six
feet long, and down this the oplorers
climbed in their exit from the homo of
these strangely interesting Bemi-savage
folk. The beautiful stream has been
utilized by the Indians in Ungating
those portions of the valley that were
sterile, and it appears that for centuries
they have known of this method of aid

He was an old man, bent and gray.
In spite of his unkempt appearance and
his poor faded clothes there was a cer
tain nobility in his facS that could not
but attract the casual observer. He sat
in tho anteroom of the police court, to
gether with a score of other prisoners.
Upon his knees ho held a little girl
whoso uncared for appearance ooold not
hide her childish prettiness. She leaned
against his breast, and on her head there

Finally the man's name was called and
ho appeared before the judge. He stated
his case. The charge was some minor
offense. Just then the little girl, who
had begun to realize that her father was
in some danger, crept near. The judge
caught sight of her. The child crept op,
in spite of tho gaze fixed on her from the
bench, and clung to her father's hand.

Tho tea plant is liko tho orango plant
in one respect, for the eceds, the blos

seeds. One peculiarity of tho tea plant
is that the veins are started from the

a sort of loop. Very few plants in the
world exhibit the same peculiarity.
Tho seed pod is generally three cor
