Iledland, about midnight Wednes
day. The train was flagged and
as it slowed down two men mount
ed tho engine, covering the en

Tho train porter was forced to un
couple the express car from the
main body of tho train, and the
engineer ordered to run a mile
down the road to a secluded spot,
where the englreer was detained
under gqard.
The local safe was rifled, but
nothing oi value was secured, The
messenger was unable to open the
through safe and no attempt was
made lo blow it open with dyna
mite. Tlio robbers, after rumaging
around the car, returned the mes
sengor's revolver, which they had
taken from hlno, and departed
empty handed. It is Bald by th
passnngers on the (rain that the
mall car was robbed of its regis

The Secretary of the Interior
haB issued an edict ordering all
Indians lo submit to an offiolal

not blend in pleasing harmony,

The decision of the Ssorotary
was reached after an exhaustive
study of the relative influences of
the missionaries and barbers.
He avers, that tho shears, have
never received proper recognition
as agents of civilization, and that
the only way to consumate
'he civilization of Lo, is to work
from "without" and not from
"within "
His reasoning ia interesting. He
says that while the Indian cannot
see the mystic evolution, tbal is
being wrought within him, through
the agency of the missionaries,
that the polished top of a baking
powdjr can, would put him in
touch, with Ihe improvement in
his pergonal annearanpe, wrough.

He jthinks that the average
brave after a few operations on
bis hirsute adornment, would be
come so enamored of hitmelf, that
he would boon forget the joys of
tho festivo warpath.
Tito Secretary, however, has a
ubsequent course, in his scheme
of civilit.atlon, that be thinks will
assure its success.
