L'niiecf.-KKfaI Attempts to Convert
Tlicm In Carly Times.
In a report to the classis of Amster
ilaiu on the state of religion in the New
Netherlands in 1CD7, Iter. Johannes
Megapoleusis and Itev. Samuel Drisins
made the following somewhat discour
aging statement In regard to the ef
forts to convert the Indians. It will
be noted that the conclusions arrived
at by the reverend gentlemen in the
first sentence of the extract were in
tlie nature of a prediction which has
been completely fulfilled:
"Of the conversion of the heathens,
or Indinue, here, we can say but little,
nor do we see any means thereunto
until by the numbers aud power of our
nation Uiey are subdued aud brought
under some policy and our people show
them a better example than they have
"We have had one Indian here with
us full two years, so that he could read
and write good Dutch. "We instructed
him in the grounds of religion. lie also
answered publicly in the church and
repeated the prayers. We likewise pre
sented him with a Bible in order to
work through him some good among
the Indians. But it all resulted In noth
ing. He has taken to drinking of bran
dy. He pawned the Bible and became
a real beast, who is doing more harm
than good among the Indians." Al
The Court's Comment.
A Georgia justice of the peace, re
lates Case and Comment, once took
upon himself to charge a jury as fol
lows: "Gentlemen, this is a case which
has been tried by me before, and I de
cided in favor of the defendant" As
the jury took the -hint and found for
the defendant, just as the Justice had
done ieforc. although the evidence was
overwhelmingly in favor of the plain
tiff, Uie higher court refused to let the
verdict stand. It also commented as
"A justice of the peace is generally
a man of consequence In his neighbor

operations on the animals of his neigh

on the busy stage of life from the time
of Mr. Justice Shallow down to the
time of Mr. Justice RIggins. Who has

It was on the homeward voyage from
Buenos Ayres, in the Ibiyal Mail t-tram-er
Piatt, that I chanced to meet "Don
Miguel." He was always so addressed
by his South American friends aboard,
but his real name was Michael Corner.
He was an KnglUhnian and had been (or
many years an extensive owner of prop
erty in the Argentine, whieh, however, lie
had sold, and was now returning home
One evening he told me a great deal
about South America and its custom.
"I hate the place," he remarked medi
tatively, puffing at his cheroot, "not only
because of sad associations, but because
of a kind of half superstitious horror
with which it is invested in my eyes aud
which I can scarcely define. Had it not
been for the cursed native customs of the
place my elder brother Tom, my partner
there for many years, who died not
long ago, would have been alive at the
present moment aud probably coining
home with me now."
I siipiiose that I looked surprised, for
the don confined:
"My brother Tom came up to my place
one day, about five years ago now, and
told me that he had resolved to discon
tinue giving the ordinary remedies to
"Indeed?" I returned. 'Well, what do
you intend to use instead?'
" 'Las I'alabras, he replied, laivhing.
'I have got the secret.'
" 'You are joking,' I said. "Surely you
don't believe in that humbug?'
" 'I didn't once, but I do now, he re
plied quietly, "for I have tiied it and
found it woiUs admirably.'
"'Well, Mike, my boy,' he said, smil
ing, 'laugh away, but come down and see
for yourself. You won't laugh if I ive
our medicine bill on the estancia every
year, will you?'
"The end of it was that I did go down,
and I was convinced against my own will
by what I saw. So would any one have
been. There was no mistake, no possibil
ity of it, in the experiments my brother
conducted before me.
" 'How did you get it? the secret, I
mean for I suppose it's no use asking
you what the words are.'
" 'That is the curious part of it,' he
'returned. 'You know Pedro Viejo Pe
dro the peon? Well, he was very ill
lately thought he was dying, and so
did every one else. In return for a cer
tain provision to lie made for his widow
he offered to reveal to me the. secre't of
I.as Palnbras, of which he alone in the
neighborhood was possessed. I con
sented, handed over the number of ani
mals he demanded, and, in return, he
imparted to me the formula, which, as I
told you, works uncommonly well.
" 'But what?'
" 'Well, you see, old Pedro didn't die
after all. . He got better and soon was
all right again. Now he wants his pow
er back again which, of course, he can't
" 'Can't have?' I echoed.
" 'No, of course not! Once you com
municate the formula to any one, you
lose the power yourself, and also the
ability to impart it to others. Pedro
can't cure a single animal now, other
wise he wouldn't bother about getting
back the power, would he? And I have
the power which he had and use it every
day. The only chance of his ever re
gaining the power is that I should die
before him. In that event it is said that
he would recover the faculty of curing.'
" 'He doesn't want money, he says; he
wants his power back again, which is
just the one thing he cannot have. I
can't give it back to him if I wished to
"It flashed upon me that, though my
brother evidently did not see it in that
light, be had given Pedro the peon a
direct interest in his death.
"I didn't say anything to Tom then,
but when I went again to Jas Palmas I
had a long talk with him, pointing out
where I thought his danger lay, but he
only laughed at me. Finally I advised
him to impart the blessed thing to some
" 'What!' gasped Tom, 'uud pay $130 a
year for medicines once more? No, I
"As we parted at the gateway a man
followed closely at our heels, whom I
knew to be Pedro. I could see that Tom
instinctively shunned him, but he follow
ed us doggedly nevertheless.
" 'Well, Pedio. what is it?' -said my
brother at length, turning round upon
" 'Las Palabras, senor. Las Palabras!'
repeated the peon, with a pitiful gesture
of entieaty. 'Las Palabras!' "
Don Miguel paused so long at this
stage that I thought his narrative had
ended, but he went ou again after a little
in a somewhat altered voice:
"About four mouths after this I -Rent
down to Las Palmas. When I arrived,
my brother was absent. He had ridden
over in the morning to an estancia out
Frayle Muerto way, so his housekeeper
"I waited his return hour after hour.
Then 1 grew anxious. At last I saddled
my horse and set out in the direction in
which he had gone. I cannot tell what
possessed me to do this: perhaps it was
because that ceaseless refrain, 'Las Pala
bras, Las Palabras!' kept ringing in my
"I had ridden about 10 miles when I
suddenly caught sight of Tom's black
horse. It was riderless and grazing.
Then I kuew there was something wrong.
"Close by the riderless horse two bodies
were lying motionless. They were those
of my brother and Pedro. The peon was
quite dead, with a bullet wound in his
forehead. Tom was dying from internal
bleeding, having been shot in the chest,
and was quite unconscious. Having tried
in vain to revive him, I galloped back for
assistance. When we returned, my
brother had passed away.
"Can you wond( r that I hate the Ar
gentine and everything connected with
it? Buenas noches, senor!"
I have only to add to Don. Miguel's
narrative that I have recently made in
quiries regarding the formula of Las
Palabras as used in the Argentine He
public and find the facta to be substan
tially as above related. Can any one

all around bad man. I knew Dick by
reputation, and he had a bad record.
"Well, one day at dinner time Dick
made some remark1 about roiling a
Greaser down in Texas and hauling
him across the prairie until he was
worn out. The Mexican answered by
saying that man must have been
asleep or dead, for you could not rope
a live man and do that. Dick jumped
to his feet and pulled his gun. and Pe

like a rattlen-ike's when about to
strike, but he put the gun back in his

"I knew there would be trouble, and
how to avoid it was a question not
easily solved. I ordered the horse

for I ftitended to move on that after

and they walked off to one side and
talked in a low tone for a few minutes.
When the horses came up. I noticed
both men saddled up their best horses.
"They both unwound their lasso
ropes and stretched them out side by
side. Dick's rope was about A7 feet
long and Pedro's about CO feet. Pedro
drew his knife from his licit and cut
his rope the exact leugth of Dick's.
Then they coiled up their ropes care

opposite directions until they were
about 100 yards apart. Then they
mounted like a Hash and rode toward

rage combined ou his savage face.
"They rode slowly toward each oth

other like a couple of caged panthers.
Then they made a dash, and botli ropes
shot out like a streak of lightning.
Both men dodged and escaped. In an

New York. Sept. 18. Now that we
are pretty well settlul in onr mind as
to the kind of good wo are to have for
fall and winter wo lieiii to think of
the styles for making them up and the
trimming Me shall put on theui; iNo
the dainty little accessories to wear
with them. At the present moment ev
erybody talks fringes, and they will
undoubtedly be very popular. If not, it
will not bo the fault of tha manufac
turers who have provided them in enor
mous quantities and of all kinds. The
silk netted fringes are the richest and
dearest, the beaded fringes next. Che
nille and tape and ribbon and floss and
saddler's silk woven on the usual line
are all heie. besides others. There is
SKV VALL MILLlKEftY.
one very effective kind where there are
alternate linuches of crirapeii twist and
chenille. This is made with heads. The
knotted heading is of chenille, and each
knot ends in a long tassel. Between
them are the crimped silk tasseH the
whole being very handsome. The jet
fringes are very bright. Some of the
jetted elastic belts have a beaded fringe
all around thein, being nmch longer in
front than the back and forming thns a
point under the brickie.
The materials, being in the main
smooth and plain of surface, save al
ways tho fino wools of the rough vari
eties, make it almost necessary to have
elaborate trimming, or at least that is
how the providers view the matter.
They claim that dressmakers are par
ticularly partial to fringe, as it gives
snch elegant effects with so little labor.
There is something in this, especially
as regards the beantifnl made pieces
calculated to apply easily.
The fringes will be put upon skirts,
waists and wrap. Many of the dresses
Cor fall have little capes to throw
around ihe shculders and long, straight
pieces to use as mantelets. All these
.are bordered with fringe. Fringe, too,
is sewed upon the ends of the ribbon on
many outing hats. There are also lots
of wido and long neckties finished off
with netted silk fringe. Jabots are also
trimmed with light fringe. What lace
has been so long it seems that fringe
is to be now. One pretty fancy is that
where whole evening gown for a
young f,irl was made of the same Tom
Thumb ribbon that ended in. fringe.
The material, whichwas eilk mull, was
made np first, and then the ribbon was
latticed over the whole, sewed on, and
at the bottom it ended in a fringe. An
other swell reception gown was of white
satin cut and made first. Over this was
a knotting of black chenille, covering
the entire skirt to within ten iiches
from ihe bottom. The whole ended here
with a thick fringe of chenille and
crimped silk which reached to the bot
tom. The effect of the white satin un
der the chenille netting was very fine.
The latest importations show that
the use of flitter spangles will be more
pronounced than ever. These are ap
plied on almost everything and produce
a very brilliant effect at less than a
tenth of the-ccst of jet and are lighter.
Jet, though, more than holds its own.
There is net completely covered with
black spangles. This will be made into
evening dresses There are pieces where
the net is 18 and 2-1 inches wide, one
complete mass of flitter. This is used
for fronts of heparato waists. Sleeves
and all-are made rf it in some cases,
and one or two courageous dressmakers
are showing whole evening dresses of
it. It is only admissible in black for
such purpose There is some of gold
and silver spangles, but that has too
cirensy n look for refined dresses. If ine
tenths of the handsome gowns this year
are to be of black or white, with oppo
site trimmings, cr a combination of
black avnd white.
Braids and all sorts of set trimmings
of braid will have a great vogne. They
vary from the narrowest soutache to
the heaviest titan and hercnles quali
ties. Much flat braid will be used edged
with a trefoil looping of narrow castle
braid. Pearl buttons, gilt and crystal
ones and others of many faceted jet
will be worn upon dress waists and
iinon jackets and the coats of military
shape. I suppose tho Dewey styles in
coat will bo out by next week in all
their splendor of gold and silver braid
Some of the new millinery is calcu
lated to a&tonish the natives. The Tam
O'Shanters bear very little resemblance
to the old Tains. These have high,
crushed crowns of velvet or felt. Some
have the crown of felt in color, with a
black velvet brim; and others the op
posite. The colors are black, gray,
brown, navy and castor. The golf hats
have crowns higher on one side than
the other and the inevitable quill. A
monrning bonnet for a young widow is
shown in tho picture, and a for and
satin toqne, with aigrets and curled
bows of wired velvet ribbon, awfully
stylish. Olive Harpek.

"In October iSSq I gave birth to a baby and
the treatment I received at the handsof the mid
wife left me with prolapsus. I had no health to
speak of for three years. I had another baby
which was the third child. My health bean to

myself completely worn out. I had so many

so little to be done in a Japanese

dishes, which seem to be eaten at all
hours of the day and night a few

little chopsticks. Very little is
kept in the larder except some slices of
daikon. fermented turnip, home rice
and sweet biscuits.

"You see that little horse over there,"
said Major Tom Williams, standing on
the edge of the sidewalk viewing a
small black pony. "That horse has
more of the traditional horse sense
than his size would show for." lie
continued, "Watch him."
The major whistled a few times, and
the little horse, which was nibbling
from a bale of hay on the sidewalk,
raised his.head and crossed the street.
He brought the cart to which he was
attached at a standstill just in front of
"You see." said Major Williams,
"that horse has an eye for distance. I
couldn't have driven him better than
that. That horse, too. is a natural
scavenger. Fie will piclr up anything
he sees ou the street, if he wants to
eat It. I never hitch himwhen I get
out of the team,, and he goes the length
of the block picking up banana peel
ings, eating hay, corn or anything he
takes a fancy to. When I want him.
I only need to whistle."
At this point a large, white dog
brushed against the major with a
friendly wag of the tail.
"You never .saw that dog kiss the
pony, did you? Well, watch him."
Major Williams climbed into his'cart,
and. caliinj: the dog, said, "Kiss him."
Without a moment's hesitation the dog
ran to the head of the horse, and,
jumping several feet off the ground,
"kissed" the pony several times. Xew
