A Nineteenth Century Canidia.
The famous sorctress Canidia, im
moralized In the Epodes and Satires of
Horace, seems to have Itft descendants
in the Italy of the present day, if we
may trust a narrative which rear lies us
from Montelepre, in Sicily. The
agricultural poor of that island with
the doubtful exception of those of
Sardinia are, mentally and educa
tionally, the most backward in the
Italian kingdom. Rather than call in
a medical man in cases of illness they
infinitely prefer the local witch, who, if
patients mean fees, must have a rela
tively lucrative practice. No amount
of failure seems to shake the popular
belief in the efficacy of such practi
tioners, and strong, indeed, must that
belief be which can survive such tr.igic
misadventures as the following:
A poor girl in her seventeenth year,
subject to neurotic disease inducinr
convulsive movements of the body as
perturbation ot the mind, was at once
pronounced to be possessed of an evil
spirit. A witch who was called in
confirmed the popular "diagnosis," an
nounced the siurce from which the
spirit came, took stock of its qualities
and its strength, and appointed the
15th ult. the feast of the Madonna of
mid-August as the day on which sht
would relieve the girl of her tormentor.
True to time the Cicilian Canidin
appeared on the scene, caused a suffi
cient quantity of water for a bath to bi
procured, and proceeded to boil it,
throwing in from lime to time a hand
ful of herbs. When the bath was pro
nounced to be ready the girl was put
into it, while some of her relatives
stood by and stt fire to about half;,
pound of incense, the funics of which
they forced the girl to inhale by en
veloping the b.:th and herself in it will
a sheet. For two hours the unfortu
nate victim had to undergo this ordeal,
in spite of htr protests that she was
being suff cated and ultimate'y of hi 1
fainting. Th s latter phenomaik n,
however, see urd to have adnn nisrud
the witch that the "renndy" hsd lasted
long enough; so the girl, st II uncon
scious, was removed to b d, where slu
bieathed her last on the following d..y
Htr agonizing struggles to disengagt
herself from the hi t bath and the (units
of the incense were, it turned out,
ascribed by the witch t the conflict
between tne ora terapeittica (the
therapeutic agent) and the evil spun
which, like most intruders of the kind,
withstood "eviction" to the bitter end
From the Medical Record
Sorrows of a Beardless Public Func
tionary. "Yes, I'm going back to Washing
ton," said Comptroller Eckels yesterday
afternoon, as he laid his satchel down
in the Palmer. "Do you know that I
shall be glad when I get back to Wash
ington, where the people have been ac
customed to my youthful appearance ?"
And the Comptroller emphasized
"youthful" in a manner that indicated
that the subject had become a bore.
"I went up to Milwaukee yesterday.
Having engaged rooms in advance, I
registered and asked what rooms had
been reserved for me. The clerk looked
over my signature, and an expression
of disgust slowly spread over his feat
ures, and twirling the book around as
if he was annoyed, said, 'Oh, we thought
it was Comptroller Eckels who had
engaged the rooms.' I felt like apolo
gizing, but said nothing and went to
my room, and from the manner in
which the clerk treated me on my re
turn, I suppose some one had disclosed
my identity to him.''
When the Comptroller reached the
cash window and asked the young
woman the amount of his bill, she in
quired: "What room, please?"
"Parlor O "
"Why, that is Mr. Eckels' room. I
thought I'd get a chance to see what
he looks like when he came to pay his
bllLfor I haven't seen him since he
entered the house."
Mr Eckels said nothing, but, paying
his bill, he picktd up his gr p, and with
a sigh said : "There it is again I
hadn't been in the house half an hour
before three reporters mistm k me for a
messenger b y and wanted to know
when Mr. Eckels would come back to
his room, and now that handsome
young cashier is disappointed because
she didn't see Mr. Eckels," and the
young Comptroller r. j lined his wife at
the entrance and began relating thl
latest incident concerning his ymitl ful

flint guying is as true today as it was when
lie uttered it, and when we hear people tall
of this or that new thing we have but to
search the nnnnls uf the past to And its
original. This is particularly true with re

well when WO can take them and by a deft
transition udnpt them to our duy und our
people. But it is interesting to watch the
evolution of bonnets trom the ugly scoop
shaped creation of 1830. We treat the
dresses of that time, and why not the bon
netr They are too ugly for our trained
eyes, so we take the bulging soft crown and
set it on the top of the peak, and then twine
a flower or so around it, tie the strings be
neath the chin, and, lo! the thing perched
upon our head becomes a thing of beauty
and a joy till the season changes.
We take a hat like that worn by a king,
with the drooping plumes, and we set it on
a pretty head, we take a l ull and put that
on under our ears, and we set our sleeves
up high and decorate them with frills and
big beads, and we call that a uew fashion.
We take a cavalier hat and bend it and
dent it and get our small brothers to use it
for a football a few times. Then we trim
it with ribbon and doners, und that also
becomes a novelty for fashion editors to
rave over. Verily, Solomon was right and
had a level head. How much of his wisdom
came from his extended Study of Woman
kind in his rather large family I am not
competent to judge, but if I were a person
who argues by betting I should lay largo
odds that it was thus that he learned so
Now, that means fur this season we have
some very tasteful gowns, nut exaggerated
is auy way, but just neat and pretty all
around. One for a street costume is of
snuff brown reps in wool and silk, a lovely
piece of goods. The skirt is reasonably full
and is plaited all the way across the back.
Around the bottom are two rows of thick
hruid, brown, flecked with white. The belt
was formed of the same, and the bretelles
and the sleeves were all finished with a
band of this braid. The sleeves and full
vest were all of the dress material. The
Napoleon hat was ornamented with a bow
of the cloth and t wo speckled quills. The
whole gown made one think of a demure
little hen sparrow.
Contrast thut modest and pretty dress
with u walking dress of 18C9. The dress is
short and scant und of pule blue tuffetu,
with a mantle of the sume, edged with
luce. And there was 1111 awful hut with it,
made of drub felt almost shapeless, with,
one very full blue plume drooping over the
right side. Verily, the nightrobes that
women wear now are more ornate. It will
not be many years before we will all be
called upon to wear just such an outfit.
But if the lhOO street dress was awful
what could we call the evening attire?
There was a single loose garment, scarcely
conforming to the figure ut all, and reach
ing nearly to the ankles. Down the front
there was generally some fancy trimming.
The sleeves were short, and a chuiu uround
the neck usually held the front of the cor
sage in place. Loose gloves, generally mitts,
came well up on the arms. This is a style
much affected by the JJelsarteun und one
or two poets, with some lutter duy udditinns.
I remember a little story about a ball
dress of this kind, and us it seems to me to
be u good lesson on tho adoption of a fash
ion I will tell it. A sea captain, recently
married, left his bride with bis parents
during bis absence. Hoops were worn
when he left. He was wrecked and made
a captive and finally, after having mar-
NOW AND THEN,
ried two dusky savages, he escaped and
returned home after an absence of six
years. His wife was at a grand ball with
bis father aud mother. He hastily dressed
and followed them, impatient to meet his
wife. He found her in awhile silk dftSS,
like the style above mentioned, und his
blinded eyes could nut see that all others,
even his mother, were dressed I he same
He turned and left the place and never re
turned to his home ugain. History doSS
not follow his footsteps further, but he
probably went buck to the savages. The
young wife hud nut realized what u ehunge
fashion had undergone, from voluminous
hoops to scanty slips, and she had but fol
lowed the current.
Some of the street dresses at that period
were of very transparent texture, but it
did not seem peculiar us the changes had
been gradual. So fusbiun is always, and
we should take a laisOD by the past and be
low at least to adopt radical changes, ut
any rate while our husbands are away.
A pretty bull dress of today U of silk
faille In two different colors, resadu green
and rose leaf pink. The breadths are cut
narrow at the top and widen out, earh al
ternate width of a different color mid
piped with a flat black velvet piping.
Around the bottom is u narrow black
feather trimming. The waist and sleeves
are of black velvet, with piuk spangled
l ice drapery. There is a row of feather
trimming uround the squuru neck. Now
1 call that an exceedingly nice duueing
dress for a ludy as in coutraat to the other,
but tastes differ sometimes.
Tile very newest of this autumn's output
of dress good9 is n leaf out of the past.
There are twills diagonal and plain, where
there Ml two distinct colors, so that as the
folds move the color changes. There are gold
upon blue, red and blue, yellow and black,
yellow and brown and green, with all sorts
of colors for the Underlying shade. I think
the bfOWnS with red or yellow will bethe
most popular. Hrown in all the snti If shades
are seen as the Standard new color, and rich
purples and prunes come next . Hrown as
ft color has been out for many years, but is
now decidedly In.
The snowflake and flecked effects are be
coming very DOpttlar, and perhaps DION of
them are being purchased for fall than
any other line of goods The large plaids
where the figure is broken and vague are
already in mgiie. There Is a new colored
corded cloth with pinhead squares rained
on the surface of some contrasting color.
Magenta is a -olor that goes well with
many of the new colors, and the dots or un
deriving cords are often uf that shade
Cashmeres or magenta, with binek polka
nut-either singly or 111 clusters, are seen,
und these will be made UP for house, dresses
and for children.
There Is a peculiarly warm tint In this
season's browns. Some of them are just
tho shade of the sunspotl on the tobacco
leaves, und from that to huvunu brown and
then to the light und after dark snu IT brown.
Someof the new silks have stripes made of
tuu uitlerent shades of brown, others of
gray and others in the season's colors.
Some are still seen in rainbow stripes, but
nut very many, und these will be worn as
dancing dresses or us trimmings.
Some of the velvets are the richest possi
ble for looms to produce. They are seen in
browns, blues, greens, purples and blnck,
and cloaks will be made uf them for Ihuse
who can afford them. Full suits of velvet
will also be worn for ceremonious occa
sions, such us high teas, nfternoon visits
and in fact all social functions where a rich
costume is permissible.
1 notice a good deal of raised hand em
broidery done on the new plush and velvet
capes and cloaks, and on the handsome uew
broadcloth tailor suits. This cunnot be
done by machine and therefore is alwuys a
superb trimming that shows its money
value at a glance.

TaDgago, the Chippewas, came from the
north and pitched their tepees on the no h
Bhore of the lake. They had reason to ! e
Ueve that the Sioux were encamped on the
southern shor",, and they planned to cross
to the south before daylight and surprise
their traditional enemies. The Sioux had
a Bimilar thought and design, aud each
tribe proceeded to exterminate the other.
They met in about the middle of the lake
and fought, and all were lost. The time is
not fixed except that the incident marks
an epoch in the history of boih tribes.
AuotJicr battle was fought afterward on
the south shore between other coniingents
of tli"-,: respective tribes. The Chippewas
came in canoes from the north as before.
This was in 1S07. The Chippewa warriors
were all slain but one man, who returned
badly wounded and riddled. The fatalities
connected with the lake and the apparitions
gave rise to the name Minuewaukan, or
spirit water, mysterious water, haunted
water, fated water, and finally to Devil's
lake as the only English equivalent for the
Indian's idea as ex-pressed in Minuewaukan.
The Chippewas came here in canoes. The
Sioux also Used canoes With but few
portage-, the former could easily at that
time, while the lake was so far above its
present level, come from Lake Superior to
Devil's lake. Since the fatalities related
those Indians have a superstitious dread of
canoes. Young people are getting over the
dread, but old Indians will wade to their
waist fishing while boats are within reach,
but won't dare enter. Minneapolis Trib
