INDIANS' STEEL TOMAHAWKS
They Were Made in Europe and Were
Often Hand Carved.
Dr. James Cox has come Into pos?
session of a genuine man killer in the
shape of an Indian t iniahnwk, The
weapon was ploughed up by William
Dunnfoo on his farm two and a half
miles north of Mnslonlown, Preston
County. Kxcopt for a few rust pits Ihe
tomahawk is iu a fine slate of preser?
vation. It Is made of steel and
is n the work of wHIth nie
US Indians never made steel toma?
hawks, but brought them from trail?
ers. New York Tribune.
it(has been hand carved in graceful
patterns, ami It is doubtful if the
band work on il could bo done for less
than $lu. H is a pipe tomahawk?
that Is, it combines the two. A neat
steel bowl, and the handle was the
stem. * ??i'-1r?
It. was never ground to a keen edge.
Indians preferred tomahawks rather
blunt when Ihti weapon was meant
for war purposes, liccuuso a sharp thin
edge would be more likely to stick
fast If il struck a bone.
It did not belong to an Indian un?
live of West Virginia, because this
stale censed to be the home of Indians
about ItiRfJ to 107?J They were exter?
minated or driven out about thill time
by n Mohawk Invasion from New
York-. The Indians who bail their
homes along the Monoiigiiholn, Kann
wha. Cheat and other streams before
that time, und whose flint arrows wo
still find in abundance, had only stone
hatchets. These Implements are still
occasionally tound In graves mid else?
where. They belonged in the Indians
who had no contact with white men.
and whenever n stone hatchel is tound
in West Virginia it may lie taken tor
granted that it belonged to a nation
who llvOd there more than 250 years
ago. How much older than that it
may be no one can tell. It may be
thousands of years older.
The steel tomahawks, however, tell

AT SMALL COST.
It lr. really hard to appreciate
the vast amount of comfort that

lay until you have tried one of our
delightfully comfortable ham?

able, and it matters net what position is required to do

There is. ?l?o as weli defined difference, in the qual?
ity and durability of these chairs, from the kind common?
ly sold. They are considerably heavier at the propsr
points, more carefully finished, and tho materials used
are the best obtainable for tho purpose. '
