HOW Tin: NEW YEAR WAS WELCOMED
•THE RESORT CLOSELY CROWDED
MANY DINNER PARTIES.
Lakewood. N. J-, J;»n. 4 (Special).— The new year
cam? in. f"H of Rood promise for popular L>akewood,
eccompaniiii by music and dancing and laughter
within doors, and the din of fire alarm and cannon
Tiitho-jt. The occasion was the climax of gayety
1,, a long week of carefully planned entertaining
The resort has hr>rn closoly crowded, more closely

bracing largely music and song, dancing and sport.
The three fjrand balls Of the large hotels were,
of course, the chief attractions for the great pro
portion of visitors. Ai:d to Insure their perfect
success an elaboration of preparation -was neces
rary which can hardly be appreciated by the aver
f. entertainer. To throw open a house to a thou
sand people, and provide them with an evening's
Jlverslon which doe* not pall upon the taste, ln
.-ludiiic the feeding of the multitude with a dozen
perfectly served courses, and all as a purely com
. plunentary detail of the season, is a proposition
which has so many times been worked out by the
hotels here as to be a matter of course.
Nor was all the jollity and good cheer confined to
th-^ STtat hotels. At Hotel Lenox, the guests
gathered about the yawning fireplace In the sun
rorri'i^r. and with a generous punchbowl close, at
hand listened to music by Charles H. Roth, a
Chicago pianist and raconteur, and Miss Emily
Sar.forii find Miss Hamilton, amateur vocalists, of
New-York. It was all informal and enjoyable.
At the Palmer House people enjoyed the dlscus-
Flon of a special menu dinner on New Year's Eve,
jessed to the cosey music room for music and
(ianrinp. and greeted the new year with song. a
Fpci i?.l party of twelve filled the green parlor In
the e-. . ning, M. J. Warner, as host, presiding at
Oak Court, tastefully rated with evergreen. I
holly, asparagus and maidenhair fern, brat.-.l
Kew Year's Eve with a ball, which was greatly
enjoyed, and other incidents of the week's pleasure
were a recital p.nd concert on Monday evening and
an ' rmal must on Saturday evening. Another
ball for the help was planned for Thursday even
At the Lexington a well attended children's party
was en aftoriioon event one daj this week. in honor
of the second anniversary of Master Albert L*r
rabee. Mrs. Larraboe made an enjoyable success of
the afternoon for the little people. On Thursday
night, a programme of readings i id monologues
whs enjoyed by • be guests.
Aside from the New fear's balls, guests of the
larfe-e hotels have made wholesale Interchange of
courtesies, finding expression In the main by dinner

the season was given on Wednesday evening by Mr.
and Mrs. Wilton Merle-Smith, table? In the private,

PI-T'TEAND WASIJOE BASKETS
THE WOXDERFIIL WORK OP TUB OLD
SQUAWS OP NEVADA.
A New-York woman who recently visited In
Nevada lias returned with wonderful tales of the
skill of the Indian makers of the Pi^Ute
and Wash.'.? tribes. She spent many Interesting
hours searching out the ugly old women of th.'
tribes who hide away among the silver streaked
mountains of that sparsely settled State and
"It was on a sir. corrr-r In Carson City that
I found the most Interesting basket weaver of
the lot." Bald the woman who had just returned
to a Tribune reporter. ''They told me that her
name was Dat-So-laa-L.ee In the Washoe lingo,
but she was plain Louisa Keyser to the Indian
agent- They .said that she was sixty years old,
but as she was too fat to have wrinkles and her
coarse black hair was not even streaked with
gray, she did not look ko old.
"Some one had enticed her Into town to have
her picture taken. She is vain beyond words,
both as to her personal 'beauty* and her work,
and they told her that the photograph would oe
used to make her famous. She brought a stock
of briskets with her and was squatting on the
pavement when 1 ran across her. She .-it once
began to Burgle In Washoe, which is about as
easy to understand as Hindoo.
" 'Sing am.' she said. 'Wedl gee you low.
Wedi ge lo hi home."
"Now, doesn't that sound like a list of Chinese
laundries? Yet It's simple enough when trans
lated: "Baskets. Good large baskets. Good small
"As I didn't care for either large or small
baskets, no matter how good, she pointed to one
of the cradle sort, calling It 'Bi-cos-modl-ml

"Whatever was her object, I could not make
her use anything but that horrible Jargon, and
finally gave up in despair. 1 bought one of her
baskets and she spent the rest of the afternoon
before the calico counter of a little notion store.
"I'll show you her picture, but it hardly does
her justice; 1 mean, it makes her look better
than she really does. She weighs some 250
pounds. and her figure bulges in every direction.
She wears her long black hair down her broad
back, and her bangs all but rover her little black
eyes. Her dress was of striped calico, red and
white, and she had a green shawl tied over her
head. She was almost as proud of this color
combination as she was of her little brass m .itch.
which she wore on her breast, white woman
"Yet this woman In three years made three
baskets which are valued by their present owner
at $U,SOO. Of course, she did not receive any
thing like that sum for thorn. The baskets are
known among the Indians as 'Sunrise.' "Twenty
Degrees In Cult' and 'Flying Birds.' The latter
is the most artistic and valuable, the owner hav
ing refused $1,500 for it. The several designs on
the basket make up a Wash... pro verb: 'When
the birds leave their nests and fly away, then
we will move.' Each figure is in three parts; one
representing the nest, another the fledgling on
top of the nest, and the other full grown birds
flying away. The rim design represents the

camp oodles, or houses of the Washoep.
"The Nevada baskets are made of willow, even
to the thread, and the preparation of the ma
terial takos much skill, time, and patience. Th
squaws get their supply of thread by splitting
»n ordinary willow into from twelve to twenty
four parts, and then stripping "fT the fibre im
mediately under the bark. They scrape th-»
thread Into uniform si;-.** with a piece of glass.
The warp consists of slender willows stripped of
th.Hr bark, and It is held in place by taking from
twelve to thirty stitches to the Inch, according
to the fineness of work desired.
"When a round or two has been stitched into
position, the squaws begin to Introduce the
colors which make up the design of the particu
lar basket in hand. The red bark of the moun
tain birch nnrt the black Bore from the root of a
hardy T> m which grows at the fool of 'he Sierra
Nevada mountains are their only materials of
color. These natural colors are Imperishable.
aiiii the women can blend the different shades
with a skill that is truly artistic*. The work is
exceedingly slow: one round of a large basket or
two of a small one forming a full day's work for
a skilled weaver.
'The basket weaving art Is rapidly dying out
among the Nevada Indians. The younger
women, with tli.-ir government school education,
have not the patience necessary to learn. A
missionary who knows r h" Indians well told me
that the art •■•■ 111 di* with the si ore of old women
who are still strong enough to weave."

XATCRALTST? AND HUMOR.
THEY SELDOM ENLIVEN THEIR DISCUS
■QHI OF PROFOUND TOPICS.
Chicago. Jan. « (Special).— Naturalists, close and
persevering students of the science which pertain*
to the organic forms of man animal and plant Utah
differ usually from other individuals in that they
cannot conceive why they should find any humor
In their professional specialties. They regard with
horror any Intimation that there i.« anything to
arouse risibilities In the studies th'v are pursuing
or the discoveries they are making. If by chance
In a demonstration before ■ class of students there)
Is any levity. It can safely be laid to one of the*
class whose mischief loving nature must find an
outlet either In burlesquing the mannerisms of thai
learned professor or in slyly playing a prank on
his more sedate classmates. Mirth rarely finds an
opening when morphologlsts, psychologists, zoolo
gists, botanists or other scientific men assemble for
business and discuss deep topics. Lawyers and
Judges, even when discussing some dry. knotty legal
problem, enliven their utterances with amusing
anecdotes regarding trials or pleas In courts. So.
too. doctors have laughable stories to tell about
their experiences In surgical or medical cases, and
some technical papers are frequently illumined by
the recital of the lighter incidents. The chemist
may have some curious results or mishaps in cer
tain experiments, and he will tell of these ami
enjoy the laughter he provokes, even if it Is at bis
Among the eminent scientists now attending th«
annual Convention of the American Naturalists*
Association at the I'nlversitv of Chicago little dis
position Is shown to enliven the reading and dis
cussion of papers on profound topics, hence the
gathering has little attraction for persona not
familiar with the sciences.
In the recess following a. morning session one of
the learned bacteriologists Indulged in a little light
talk with others of his class. They were Inspecting
an exhibit of Instrument.-. The professor, growing
reminiscent, told of a practical Joke he had played
on an esteemed member of the medical profession^
The latter did not believe in the germ theory ana
refused to pursue any study in that direction, hold
ing that it was all bosh. The more the bacteriolo
gist lnststed the more doubting the doctor became.
[>.Ie is no such din* as germs in tuberculosis.
1 vill not belief it." declared the physician, a native
of the Fatherland.
"Yes, but I have bacilli which I can show yon
under the microscope and prove my assertion,
replied the professor.
"Und Id baa bead und tail?" queried the doctor.
"Certainly. Come to my laboratory and I'll show
it to you."' said the bacteriologist. __
The doctor visited the laboratory and the scientist
shewed him the specimen under the microscope.
A peculiar looking, wiggling object with the head of
a monster and feathers sticking forth like the war
path headgear of a savage Indian was presented.
"Meln gracious! I'nd dot dins Is alive?" cried tne>
doctor. "No vender the germs can ravage a man's
lungs. I shall get me .i microscope at vonce."
Th»" doctor was converted to the germ theory.
but the wicked bacieriolojrlst failed to reveal to
him that the bacillus shown In the microscope was
rt common flea obtained from the body of the
scientist's pel house dog.
An instance of humor almost creeping into a
profoundly serious feature *ya* after Professor
Jacques Loeb. of the University of Chicago, read
his paper on the artificial propagation of lower
rms of life by use of sodium an other chemicals.
A young naturalist suggested experiments to propa
gate oysters by the same means, which would lessen
their cost and enrich the fisher of bivalves. But
he lost his airy demeanor when another unconscious
humorist hinted at a gigantic salt trust when pro
longlng human life by the saline process came into
vogue. Both were effectually squelched by the cold
stares and roM looks of the other physiologists,
and the comments on Professor Loeb a paper pro
ceeded on strictly technical lines.
A "SPEED .4Y/> STOP CHECK." *
as rxGENioca device that helps overbcr-
DENED HORSES AND THEIR OWNERS.
An Ingenious little device that is proving a boom
to overburdened horses and is bringing woe to
many a careless, dilatory or brutal driver Is to be
seen nowadays on the delivery wagons of many
Ug mercantile houses, breweries and trucking com
panies. In these days of sharp competition and
good wages it is essential to the success of large
business enterprises that the greatest possible ser
vice be obtained from men and horses alike, but
wise employers, who take pride in their handsome
delivery animals and pay tidy sums for stanch
horseflesh, find no economy In overworking their
draught animals. But try as they would, the man
agers of many business concerns having fifty or a
hundred or more horses found it almost an Im
possibility to place the responsibility for abuses
until the "speed and stop check." or indicator, of
which there are several patterns, came Into the
market to aid the work of the Bergh society, de
livery superintendents and stable bosses.
Now. if Fritz or Patrick stops at his favorite
saloon to play a game of pinochle with his cronies
and then compels his horses to make up the lost
time afterward. It is all Indicated on the -speed
■ and stop check. modelled after the fashion of the
cyclometer of bicycle fame. The indicator la
about the shape of an ordinary alarm clock, with a
face about five inches across and divided by mm!
! ute and hour lines. A clock hand moves continu

records only while the wagon moves stamping each
j quarter mile as it is wheeled off. The indicator is
, attached to a roar wheel, and if a driver stops the
