"LO" AT THE PHONE.
Any of His Tribesman Will Do to
Answer His Call.
The Indians are great on using the
telephone. They have but little or no
use for the local boards, their calls
being over the long distance. They
do not put in a call for the individual.
They do not ask for White Eagle at
Canton or Flying Cloud at Darlington.
The call is for "any Cheyenne." The
same is true as to the Arapahoes.
Any member of the tribe serves.
An Indian puts in a call for any
member of his tribe at Canton, Dar
lington, Colony, Lawton or any point.
It is "up to" the manager to go out on
the street and pick up an Indian. Any
one will do, so he is of the u-ibe asked
for. He is put up to the phone and
the talk proceeds. The talk beihg in
Indian, no one knows what it is about
If an Indian, say, in Clinton wants
to reach one of his people, say, forty
miles from Canton or any other given
point, he calls for one of his tribes
men, tells him the message he desires
delivered, and it is his business to de
liver it, eve;? though it requires a
night trip and in a storm.
A little Indian haby died near Clin
ton last year, and his mother desired
that her relatives attend the funeral
services. They lived out on the prairie
northwest of Canton? The telephone
was .used and a member of the tribe
directed to deliver the message to the
mother's relatives. It was delivered
by a courier across the prairies and
canyons, and the relatives came in
over the Orient next day.
Last summer a call came to Clinton
for a Kiowa that was a poser for the
manager. However, he found upon
inquiry among. the Cheyennes that
there was one who had lived among
the Kiowas and spoke the dialect. He
was put up to the phone and received
the caji.-Clinton Cor. Dallas News.
What's become of the "coreless" ap
ple? Twenty years ago it was an
nounced, as a discovery or a develop
ment calculated to revolutirnize the
orchard industry. Of late we hear
less about it A little later the "thorn
less" blackberry appeared on the hori
zon. It certainly was thornless, but
somehow it failed to drive the fero
ciously armed brambles of the berry
gardens into the desert It is still
produced, but the older kinds are yet
much more common. Now the "seed
less" grape bids for favor. Such a
.fruit would surely "meet a long felt
want" If the quality and flavor of
the few thus far grown can be per
petuated and it proves remuneratively
productive and capable of "standing
up" for shipment there is a big future
before it.-Country Life In America.
Camille Flammarion's Home.
M. Flammarion, with his wife, who,
by the way, is also a keen thinker and
her husband's constant assistant lives
in a chateau at Juvisy, built right on
the spot chosen by Louis XIIL to
erect a royal residence. Besides be
ing an admirable housewife, Mme.
Flammarion- is one of the charter
members of the Disarmament league.
Before Louis Xiii, cast his eyes on
the place there was a chateau there.
Napoleon stayed m it on his way to
Fontainebleau. The mansion was ac
quired later by an amateur astrono
mer, who had an observatory con
structed on the grounds. When he
died he bequeathed the entire proper
ty to a man whom he had never seen.
This man was Camille Flammarion.

. Dr. Loui:; i*.<-!ipinsk^; ">fts the ar
rest of persistent h: ^<rgh by depress
ing the tongue. patient was attack
ed by hiccough which had persisted
for four days before being seen by the
doctor. He complained of the fullness
in his throat a condition which he
thought the result of the hiccough.
He was directed to sit up. aud with .a
large spoon handle the tongue was
-pressed down and back with steady
force to allow inspection of the fauces.
Firm pressure on the tongue with the
hope of further noting the action of
the palatal muscles was continued,
when, to the doctor's surprise and the
patient's astonishment and joy, the
hiccough ceased. When the hiccough
returned the patient himself stopped
ltV using the spoon handle.-London
The Flat Wheel.
The enormous energy developed by
a flat spot in a wheel has been esti
mated by Professor Hancock of Pur
due university. He finds that a flat
spot two and one-half inches long on
a thirty-three inch wheel, carrying a
load of 6,000 pounds at thirty miles
per hour, will deliver a blow to the
rail of more than 1,000 foot pounds.
The same flat wheel supporting a fifty
five ton interurban car running sixty
miles per hour would deliver a blow
with an energy of 9,500 foot pounds.
Such a flat spot would be produced by
wearing off less than five one-hun
dredths of an inch of metal.-Scien

The Atmosphere of Mars.
Professor Percival Lowell, the as
tronomer, says that the assistants at
his observatory at Flagstaff. Ariz.,
have been able to determine that there
ls measurable water vapor on the
planet Mars and that the atmosphere
of Mars affects the spectrum in the
same way. though only one-fifth as
much, as does the earth's atmosphere.
There has been much controversy
with reference to the atmosphere of
Mars and Its qualities. Those scien
tists who disbelieve in any life on the
planet have known that their point
could be proved if the absence of an
atmosphere should be shown.
