* THE PLAINS TRIBES.
Typical American Ind Una ?f the Groat
? The northwest plains Indian is
to the average person the typical
?Awor.csa indian, mu AJ? mari ol our
-school day books--powerful oi phy
sique, statuesque, gorgeous in dress,
with the bravery of tho firm believ
er in pr?destination. The constant,
f earless hunting and slaughtering of
.the buffalo trained li im to the great
x -est physical endurance and gave an
inbred desire for bloodshed. Thou- j
} .sands of peace loving, agricultural
; Jiving s Indians might climb down
j from Idiek cliff perched homes, till
their niiniature farms, attend their
?oeks and at nighttime climb back
.np the windiiig stairs to their home
in tho clouds and attract no atten
tion, but if a fierce band of Sioux
crushed down on a hapless emigrant
. strain the world Boon learned of it.
The culture of all primitive peo-,
iples is necessarily determined by
their environment. This, of course,
?neons that all .plains tribes, though
.speaking a score of languages, were
in life and manner broadly alike.
'.They were buffalo hunting Indians,
.and only in ?rare cases did they .give
?any attention to agriculture. Buf
falo meat was their food, And the
byproducts their clothing, tools and
. implements.' ?j r
The plains tribes in earlier times
twere certainly true; nomads. For a
.r, vtime, in the depths of winter, they>
i;'. tcamped in the 'shelter of some forest
?along the streams. ? Other than that
wherever roamed a herd of buffalo,
? there also wandered tho bands of
morihern Indians. The very exists
?nee of these .tribes seemed hound
-.io that of the buffalo; ?rom the
?kins their lodges were built, while
tho hair on the hides furnished the
.sobes f or the body .as well as mat
tresses and bed coverings. Tno

Ne Two of Them Arc or Ever Will Bs
Just Exactly Alike.
There ere no two . things alike in
this world--no two atoms alike, uo
two blades of grass alike, no two
peas alike, no two f eoes alike-won
derful-most wonderful of all-no
tro ladies?' hats alike! Has this
thought ever been impressed upon
you whilo sitting in on ossemblage
of women? Oh, tho wisdom and
forethought of nature, for were each
woraau to have a hat similar to her
neighbor's what an infinite variety
of additional woes and heartaches
and tears tho humun race would
have had to bear 1
And yet Matthew Soi Heigh, born
and bred in Now York, knew naught
of this. His tender brain could not
conceive tho fact that everything in
this world is infinite in its revolu
tions and ramifications, particular
ly ladies' hats, so Matthew backed
Iiis poor judgment with real money
and mado a wager with his friend,
Silas Cute, that be would soon find
him two hats that were alike.
Matth'ew and Silas selected a day,
UKU they walked up and down tho
groat White Way, they promenaded
Fifth avenue, they visited the parks,
they strolled to the east ?ide, the
west side and every other side; they
visited the theaters, the concert
halls, the churches. From der to
day tho quest continued until both
were weary and footsore. Thoy saw
Gainsboroughs, picture hate, hats
with ribbons, hats with feathers,
hats with aigrettes, but no two hats
alike. They saw dreams of red and
blue and green as well as night
mares and incubi of "Arabian
Nights" phantasy. Th?re were po
etry and-prose, music and flowers
tvpified in every one, but no two
alike. What ingenuity they repre
sented, what ceaseless brain activ
itVj vvhat thought, what feeling,
what delicacy in some, which ii put
into a poem or a symphony would
earn him or her a place in tho Hall
of Fame I
Matthew lost his bet, and it,is
well that he did. There should be
no two hats alike, there aro no two
hats alike and there never will be
two hats alike. Nature, like wom
an, is feminine. She has a variety
of moods, of expression, of beauly,
of color, of form and figure, and a
woman's hat is the embodiment, the
epitome of hejr every thought, her
every wish, her every desire. Not
one woman is like another; neither
can her hat be. Arid when the time
comes that two hats are found alike,
then will genius have reached its
limit and tho world will have lost
all its beauty and all that makes
life worth livingi--New York Her

Ways In Which the Potatoes At*
Prepared and Cooked.
Making Saratoga chips, the Sara
toga chips or commerce, is ono busi
ness that ia not in danger of being
monopolized by any concern. In
most of the cities will be found half
a dozen or moro small establish
ments where it is profitably con
It does not require much equip
ment. In a typical establishment
are half a dozen women busily en
gaged in peeling tho tubers. There
is a machino that docs tho trick
nicely, but most of the manufactur
ers prefer hand labor. An expert
peeler can dispose of the potato's
jacket in almost as short a time as
the machine. A live gallon meas
'ure ?tands on a chair by each work
er. A spacial kind of a knife ?9
used, which rips o it" the skin with
The chipping or slicing is done
by machinery. Usually hand pow
er is employed. The potatoes are
dumped into a hopper, and by turn
ing tho handle it requires but a few
minutes to slice them into bits of
the required thinness. These fall
in a pilo and from there are shov
eled into a vat.
This is a great iron kettle, con
taining several gallons of liquid
kept at the boiling point. Within
the kettle hangs a large perforated
vessel that looks like a dishpan,
which can be raised or lowerea by
operating a lever controlled by a
piece bf rope at tho end. In this
vessel are placed tho slices. A hot
fire is kept going during the brown
ing process, and the liquid is stirred
constantly to prevent burning. In
a few minutes the chips are done
and the mass turned into a big tub.
The product finds the readiest
sale in tho summer months. This,
it is claimed, is duo to the fact
that women don't like to stand over
a hot fire in the warm months cook
ing potatoes in the ordinary way.
Twice as many chips are sold in the
heated term as during the winter.
Lard is not used in the process by
the best makers. T?iis is because
it makes the chips 6oft and in time
rancid. Salad oil has been found to
be the most satisfactory, -r- New
A Different Spoiling of "Turner."
Apropos to this matter ,o? sim
plified spelling, it was the topic of
conversation at a literary gathering
in New. York the other evening.
There was serious and emphatic dis
cussion for some time when at last
one of the company very solemnly
inquired if any one present could
pronounce the word "phthologn
yrrh." There was much question
ing, much repetition of the con
glomerate mass of letters; then it
was given up. "Simple enough,"
declared the propounder of the puz
zle. "It spells 'turner.* Don't you
see? Phth is pronounced t, a3 in
phthisic; o lo is pronounced ur. as in
colonel; gn is pronounced n, as in
gnat, ana ynh is pronounced er, as
in myrrh." Amia Bhcuts of laugh

pronounce, was. finally pronounced

They Explore the Sewers In Search of
Articles of Value.
Shoremen or shore workers th?y
sometimes call themselves, but
their most familiar appellation is
"toshers," and the articles they
pick up "tosh."
They really belong to another
well known class, the mudlarks, but
consider themselves a grade or two
above these latter, for the genuine
tosher does not contine himself, as
they do, to traveling through tho
Thames rniul and picking up odd
Eicces of coal or wood, copper, nails,
olts, iron and old rope. The tosh

police, maj:cs his way into tho sew- ,

casionally find their way into (hem

When about to enter the sewers
these men provide thor elves with
a pole Eeve?} or eight feet long, on
ono end of which there is a largo
iron hoe, a bag carried on tho back,
a canvas apron tied a ound them
and a dark lantern s;milar to a po
liceman's. Thia they strap^on their
right breast, so that whilo walking
upright through tho largo sewers
the light is thrown straight in front.
When they como to the branch sew
ers and have to stoop the light is
thrown directly at their feet. AB
they make their way they use their
hoo in the mud at their feet and in
the crevices of the brickwork, and
occasional shillings, and silver
spoons find a temporary resting
place in the bag at their back or in
their capacious coat pockets.
The toshers generally go in gangs
of three or four, bpth for the sake
of company and to be able to de
fend themselves from the rats with
which the sewers swarm. When
they como near a street grating
they close their lanterns and watch
an opportunity to slip past unno
ticed, for otherwise a crowd of peo
ple might soon collect at tho grat
ing whoso presence would put the
police on tho alert. They lind great
quantities* of money, copper money
?specially, in tho crevices of the
brickwork a little below the grating
and not infrequently shillings, half
crowns and sixpences, with an oc
casional sovereign or half sovereign.
When "in luck" they find many
articles of plate,: spoons, ladles, sil
ver handlea knives and forks, mug3
and drinking cups and now and then
articles of jewelry. They general
ly also manage to fill their bags
with the more, bulky articles found
in their search, such as old metal,
bones and ropes. These they dis
pose of to the marine store dealers
and rag and bone men and divide
the proceeds, along with the coins
found, among the different mem
bers of the gang. At one time t":e
regular toshers used each to earn
from 30 shillings to ?2 a week, but
with the construction of new sewers,
grated at the mouth, their industry
? nut so easily exercised and ia
consequently much less profitable.
The Glass Washer..
When, you dine en famille at a
house where each glass on the table
is worth $20 you naturally wonder
how the servants manage to wash
and dry so costly and delicate an
article without breaking. I put the
question to a matron who is her
own housekeeper, "Tell me how
many o? . your beautiful goblets,
tumblers, wineglasses, sherry glass
es, etc!, are broken every week."
She replied: "Every glass is insured
by a company formed for the pur
pose. % This company sends to us
every day. an expert glass washer,
a Bohemian, and if he breaks any
thing' it bas to be paid for. Our
butler keeps tab on him, of course.
He breaks very few pieces, indeed.

St Wa? Between Two Men, and the

A blind man was making his way
out Washington avenue, using his
cano ns a guide for his feet. Across

legend, "I am blind," and suspend
ed by a chain around his neck was
a small tin cup, a convenient recep

It was broad daylight, and he
knew that streteh of walk BO well

look out for the step down from the
pavement to the cross street. There ?

replied. "I think it was your own

you aro going."
"How can I look where I am go

It is you who ought to look whero
you aro going ana not go bumping
into a blind man."
"What's that? You blind? I
didn't know. I couldn't tell, you

knocked off your hat. I'm afraid I
can't help you find it. I wonder

ART OF COOKING.
Progress of Human Rac? Closely Al
lied to It
It way well be said that the devel
opment of tho art of cooking ia
closely connected with the < award
progress of tho human ruct As
the prehistoric cavo dwellers knew
nothing of tho uso to which lire
might bo put, their gastronomic
abilities wore probably ou a par ]
with those of the boast of prey with
which they competed for their daily
supply of food. Tho earliest na
tions of whom we possess historic
words recognized the value of
fo -< s properly prepared, and wo
find that the science of cooking
gradually attained tho height of its
development during tho reign of tho
great Roman emperors of tho Au
gustinian period. Wo are apt to
look upon the banquets of tho old
Homans as orgies, ami in some de
gree they undoubtedly wore, and yet
wo have abundant evidence that tho
Romans were cognizant of the fact
that the proper preparation and rea
soning ot the food contributed in a
large measure to an improved appe
tite and a better digestion. Wo
must, therefore, credit theta with a
knowledge of theso physiological ne
cessities even while condemning
them for their luxurious repasts.
They also realized that a pleasant
framo of mind had a great and im
portant influence on the digestive
processes and therefore provided
amusements of various kinds dur
ing tho meal. Tho inroads of tho
northern barbarians caused the
highly developed arts and sciences
of tho Kornaus-and culinary per
fection' must bo included among
thom-to bo plunged into tho long
period of darkness which marked
tho middle ages.
Whatever knowledge wo possess
of their civilization wo owe to tho
many monastic orders of Europe,
whose members preserved and culti
vated, among other things, the tra
ditions of the culinary art until tho
renaissance, in thc reign of Louis
XIV. of Franco and his successors.
Tho influence of France on he me
nus of the world has conti? aed un
interruptedly down to tho present
day. The principles bf cooking,
speaking of the latter in a general
sense, were developed by the early
Romans in a purely empirical fash
ion. Now they have been made tho
subject of scientific investigation
and-found to rest on a firm and
sound basis. The Russian physiol
ogist, Pavlov, has clearly demon
strated in his researches on diges
tion that the ingestion of substances
with a purely nutrient value does
not sufficiently satisfy the demands
of tho body. Taste and appetite
must also bo taken into considera
tion. Theso aro satisfied only by
the addition to the food of spices
and salt, and it is largely duo to the
influence, of these ^condiments that
tho proper amount of gastric juice
is liberated by tho mucous mem
brane of tho stomach. The action
upon tho ?tomaeh of reflex stimuli
is shown/by the favorable effect on
the flow' of the gastric secretions
made by mental impressions in
duced by tho mere sight and color
of a well prepared dish. In this
manner Eppien (Reichs Medicinal
Anzeiger) leads np to the broad
claim that the proper preparation
of all food, as demanded by the . es
sential requirements of the culinary
arty is not a luxury, but a physiolog
ic*! necessity, and to develop a?u
disseminate this knowledge is an act
beneficial to tho publie welfare.
There is happily an increasing inter
est taken hy physicians to dietetics
and cooking, for those two subjects
go band in hand, and this interest
it should be- thc sim of the medical
man to transmit to his patients or
to those who have care of them.
A Pertinent Question.
A senator used t'.i tell this story
of an incident ho witnessed on a
Boston street car. It was about ll
o'clock p. m., tho mystic hour when
ali law abiding Bostonians lose their
thirsts. Tho senator happened to
notice a man running after the car
and vairly trying to attract the con
ductor's attention. Tho senator no
tified the conductor, who stopped
the car. Tho belated passenger,
who was eomowhat under tho in
fluence of liquor, had no sooner
(climbed aboard than he delivered
(himself of tho following remarks:
"Shay, Mr. Conductor, does thish
road run to 'commodate tho passen
gers or the passengers run to 'com
modato the road ?"
The Influence of Music
"Music at meals," remarked the
commentator on little things of
life, "usually makes mo feel like
swearing. In fact, I am moro like
ly to swear than not when I go to
a restaurant for dinner and am
greeted by. the ordinary band. And
yet, curiously enough, if a hand or
gan begin/; to play outside the res
taurant in which I am eating my
lunch it has the opposite effect, for
lt invariably makes me blue. " Why
it should ia A mystery, but it does
just the same. I wonder why.'"
