The finest house ever designed
by a redskin is the grass house of
the Wichitas, a tribe tin t at present
live in Southern Oklahoma. 1 hey
are the only tribe that ever accomp
lished successfully the erection of a
grass structure Soon they are to
to abandon these huts and take up
their humdrum reservation life in
two-room frame shacks, which are
being built for them by the Govern
ment. The grass house, it is claim
ed, is far from being healthful, but
it is certainly comfortable.
There arc only about fifty old
men of the tribe alive to-day who
understand the art of building one
of these houses so that it will stand,
and these refuse to work, even for
generous wages. The Government
has offered these grass-house build
ers lucrative employment to con
struct some houses that maybe
preserved as models of an ancient
art. But they refuse, and the grass
huts that used to dot the prairies qf
the Wichita reservation are now
being torn down The Wichitas
are determined that their huts
shall not survive them.
Appearances are often deceiving.
One can look upon a grass house
and imagine it an easy thing to
build. But not so. It is, indeed,
most intricate. The grass is gath
ered early in the spring, when it is
yet fresh. The sod cutting usually
takes place immediately after a
rain, the sod being removed to a
thickness of about eight inches.
Buffalo grass sod is the only kind
that will answer the purpose of the
builder. He commences to lay the
foundation as does the stonemason,
digging away the earth to a depth
of about one foot. The grass por
tion of the chunks of sod is laid to
the outside, and the houe is built
to n height of twelve to fifteen feet
in the form of a pointed dome.
There is no hole in the top for
smoke to pass out, the latter being
carried away through a pipe on the
outside of the hut. The door is
usually in the south, and there are
no windows. Through each tuft
of sod is run a willow reed string,
and these strings are bound clear
around the structure. The grass
remains green and will grow if
there is plenty of rain. -It is not at
all uncommon to see the sides of
these grass houses turn green as
spring approaches, just as do the
pastures near them. The houses
are very warm in winter and cool
in summer. They never leak.
Often the Indians have barns made
of the same material. But in these
days the redskins arc made to live
in frame shacks, and the once fa
mous grass house will soon be but
a recollection. Scientific American.

One of the most remarkable fea
tures of the new edition of "Orien
tal Rugs" (Charles Scribner's Sons)
is a reproduction of a carpet owned
by the late Henry J. Marquand.
This piece, which was woven in the
latter part of the fifteenth century,
was without doubt made as a gift
from the Pasha of Persia to the then
ruling Sultan fc of Turkey, for the
authenticated record held by Mr.
Marquand showed that it had been
found among the effects of the Sul
tan Abdual Aziz after his death.
Aside from the marvelous color
and texture, which is over 500
knots to the square inch, the fea
ture of the rug is that the inscrip
tions throughout its border, as well
arabesques in the medallions of the
design, are woven in silver thread.
Vast interest has been excited a
mong the European collectors in this
carpet owing to the fact that it is a
companion piece for the famous
carpet owned by the Prince Alexis
Lobaucv Rostowsky, which was
shown in the Vienna Museum's
exhibition in 1899.
The Rostowsky rug was sup
posed to be without a parrellel irt
the world, but this carpet, the most
highly valued among the textile
treasures of Mr. Marquand, con
tains positive internal evidence that
jt was made upon the same looms
and in the same period, and doubt-,
less for the same purpose, as that
of Prince Lobanow, which also
passed into the possession of its pres
ent owner direetly from the serag
lio in Constantinople, and so far as
can be ascertained this carpet, used
as a frontispieceofOrientalRugs,"
is the highest class Oriental fabric
now in existence in this country.

Hates During Winter Months.
Honolulu, March 20. There is.
an indication that tourist steamship
fares on the Oceanic liners between
Honolulu and San Francisco may
be reduced considerably for a period
of three mouths of the year. It is
said tliat the Oceanic Company j
would be willing to make the fare
$35 each way during the months of 1
December, January and February.
Charles R. Frazier, who recently
wrote a book regarding the Islands,
is authority for the above statement.
He left the Islands some time ago
to travel in the States. When he
left here he had letters of introduc
tion to the Oceanic Steamship Com
pany in San Francisco. In a letter
to the Honolulu Ad, a new paper
started here, he says!
"The writer found Mr. L. F.
Cockroft of the Oceanic Steamship
Company eager to aid in Hawaiian
tourist travel, and through his as
sistance he secured many conces
sions in travel Trotn the railroad
companies, in answer to a sugges
tion that steamship companies
might make a reduction in fare dur
ing the winter months, Mr. Cock
roft said it might possibly be ar
ranged to make the fare to Hono
lulu $35 during the months of De
cember, January and February,
and an arrangement might be made
with the railroad companies for a
through trip from the East on the
same basis. When the local busi
ness bodies begin their advertising
campaign in earnest, there will very
likely not be the slightest difficulty
in arranging with the steamship
people for a cheap rate."
Tho True liabylou.
Just as, some thirty years back,
Sir Fiorelli, says the Boston Herald,
uncovered for use the ruins of Pom
peii, thereby enabling us to form a
very excellent idea of the appear
ance of a Roman town of tue first
century of the Christian era, so,
during three years past, have the
Germans been uncovering ancient
The results have been, though
scientfically interesting, somewhat
disappointing, for the city has
proved to be by no means either so
magnificent or so extensive as pop
ular imagination has alawys pict
ured it. Indeed, Dr. Koldwey,
who is in charge of the excavations,
asserts positively that the famous
walls were certainly not more than
eight miles in circumference.
Nor is this all. For not only was
the city comparatively insignificant
as regards size, but even its vaunted
splendor and wealth of architectural
detail could, the doctor declares,
have had no real existence.
Sun-dried mud bricks constituted
the only building materials avail
able, and large or imposing edifices
could not possibly have been con
structed by their aid alone.
In reality the explorers have con
vinced themselves, by actual meas
urement, that not even in Nebuch
adnezzar's royal palace was there a
single private apartment which
would be considered large enough
nowadays for a lady's boudoir.
The biggest public room was the
banqueting hall, wherein occurred
the "Mene, mene, tekel upharsin"
incident, and this was barely fifty
feet long. The houses of the com
mon people were mere hovels. So
perishes a cherished illusion.
It is probably the same with not
a few of the semi-mythical wonders
of olden times. The famos Colos
sus of Rhodes, for instance, which
has given a word "colossal" to
the English language, and which
was esteemed one of the seven
wonders of the world, would, if
standing to-day, be quite dwarfed
by the gigantic btatue ot liberty
erected at the entrance to New York

That the device is more strongly built than is usual, and that the trolley
wheel is covered so that the traveler sheave canno't in any way be
affected by the elements. Once in position it cannot be thrown
off the track.
Of the track is that it can be placed either side up, which is a conve;
nience in cases where the building is not suited for placing the track
