Appearance of the Outside?Totem Folea
and Family Creitar?Interior View.
The most pretentious houses of the na
tives are at WrangelL Some of them are
60x80 feet in size, one story high, built of
logs, planked on the outside, nicely white
washed with gable roof and doors and
windows. They never have chimneys.
The fire is built in the center of the
smooth earthen floor, and the smoke es
capes through .a flat cupola, in the ?? root
An' elaborately carved and gaudily painted
totem pole usually ornaments the front.
Some of these are sixty feet high. They
are popularly supposed to have some re
ligious significance, but are merely heral
dic devices illustrating the family history
and showing the family crest, whether it
be bear, beaver, eagle, shark, whale,
wolf, frog or raven. These have their
counterpart in the pictured buffalo robes
and coup sticks of the Indians of the
plains. To one who has never seen them
before the effect is most startling. One
"Seen in the wet, grey dawn of early
morning, as I first saw them, they have a
most weird und strange appearance; for
the ravens which are carved upon them,
the whales and the bears, are all of huge
proportions, and have a most melancholy
way of glaring down upon all who stand
gazing at the barbarous relics."
But the totem poles are becoming
weather-beaten and time-worn. The paint
is nearly off, never to be renewed, and the
pride of ancestry and achievement, as
manifested by visible testimony, seems to
have vanished with the preceding genera
tion. In many cases, similar devices ap
pear upon the tombs of the dead. Around
the four sides of the interior of these
houses is a raised platform several feet
wide, the rear portion of which, opposite
the entrance is' partitioned into state
rooms and screened by curtains of cotton
or woolen sniff. On either side of these
Bleeping apartments are slabs of heraldic
devices fixed to the walls. The best houses
have modern stoves, furniture, crockery
and kitchen utensils, and are. very clean
and comfortable throughout. There may
be twenty of these in WrangelL

Water mad Explosives In Tfftn'as;.
Attention is called to the fact that the
value of water as on aid to blasting, when
used in connection with explosives, is
rapidly becoming recognised la this
country, as well as In the larger mines
and quarries of Europe. Among the
favorable points pertaining to this process
special mention Is made of the fact that
the powder, In exploding, bursts the tube
containing the water, and?careful esti
mates showing?with Increased power or
explosive violence: this Is because the
rending force is extended through the
water, in accordance with certain well
known principles of hydrostatics, over
the enlarged interior area of the bore
hole, due to the space occupied by the
A much larger quantity of the material
to be mined or quarried is thus brought
down or loosened with a smaller quantity
of the explosive used. Again, the heat
given off by the burning of the powder
and surrounding gases converts a larger
portion of the water into steam, the
elastic force of which assists in the opera
tion of blasting, and the steam and re
maining water together extinguish the
flame and flash of the powder.?Coal

An Auburn man recently cured his cat
of getting upon the table in search of

in a saucer close to the edge of the table
and poured a little milk on it, then went
out and waited. As ho pecked through
the window he saw the cat jump upon the
table. He smiled. Soon the cat found the
milk, and in drinking it put its paw in to
the saucer. The man laughed aloud yVitb
glee. Then he heard a noise, and ' slowly

himself and started Into' the house to see
how the cat felt, but was surprised when

weather, however. Take away its New

values? The obscurest inhabitant, who sifts
its winter fuel from the ashes thrown away
by the more comfortable, takes a pride in
the brave show that the day brings forth.
Diplomatic .costumes, carriage^ieathers
and furbelows are fine things even to see
from afar. The citizens or this city who are
debarred from participating in those splen

structions rise while it is yet night on the
morning following New Years, to greedily
read the glowing newspaper descriptions of
the great annual reception day.
At 10 o'clock the carriages were flying

Tho blue parlor was the reception room
proper. It was modestly decorated with
flowers, and so wero tho red and grcon and

all but tho east parlor and gaslight took its
place. Gas is considerd tho indispensablo
adjunct of all receptions. It acts as a mel

One of tho front windows of tho mansion
was converted into an egress for tho crowd.
The policemen, as the roportors say, "re
mained quietly in the background" What
else they might have done I can't surmise,

a mob, which they woro called to attend.

dressed high, long white gloves over her

Formation of tho American Race.
Said I: "Mr. Bookwalter, have you
ever thought about the race that is in
"The American race is only in process
of formation. It is not yet made. It is
not going to be liko the old Puritans or
Quakers or Virginians, and yet with qual
ities varied and original. When you
want to get the best iron you mix tho
ores from many places, and the quality of
one assists the quality of every other one.
From some you get tension, from some
obstinacy, from some purity. I think
that under favorable conditions of gov
ernment and intelligence the American
race is liable to become one of the best,
if not the very best.
"The only thing I see to retard this race
in the line of perfection is the variability
of the climate, which I am afraid affects
the regularities of method and staying
qualities of the people. We have every
kind of climate in rapid alternations, and
almost every one feels It In his system.
Since I have been in New York it seems
to me that every sort of climate has been
here?almost the cold of winter, the chill
of early spring and the sickening heat of
Indian summer. Every time I get up a
new kind of climate confronts me, and it
nndouhtedly affects the regularity of
your Inteiitiens and purposes.
"Climate is the~^ost^ppwerful. factor
everywhere. The reason wEyTndhv-haa..

thought has been that the race. to which
everything is due there i came not out of
the sultry coasts, but from the high and
fresh plateaus stretching out from the

plateau the climate gives its vigor to tho
brain, and tho thought seems to move

Cattle and Sheep on the Track.
"Do we try to avoid kUling animals?
We do when it is possible," said an old
engineer. "But if it is impossible to stop
tho train before reaching them it is dan
gerous to lessen the speed, for when a
train is moving slowly a big, healthy
steer is sometimes enabled to derail it. If
I see I can't stop before reaching the ani
mal I pull the throttle wide open and let
her go. In going around a curve one
night eight miles front Davenport, on the
Rock Island, I saw a steer standiug on
the track. Ho did not move, but looked
straight at the headlight. I opened the
throttle and the next moment hit him. I
felt the jar. He was literal chopped to
ece3 and the particles of flesh covered
e headlight, so that I could not sec
until the next station was reached. The
engine was covered from the pilot to the
tender with blood and pieces of flesh.
"The worst animal to encounter on a
railroad track," continued the engineer,
"is sheep. Even if they are on the out
side of the fence they wiU venture on the
track when the first opening is reached.
And the ope that takes the lead is fol
lowed by aU the rest. Hogs make a. bad
mess. I hit a drove one day while run
ning fifty miles an hour. Realizing I
could not stop before reaching them I let
the engine have all she could take. There
was a slight jar and a moment later the
porkers were-flying in every direction to
the sides .of the track and over the engine.
As the animals began falling the fireman
sarcastically remarked, .'Pork is coming
down.' . The engine was the bloodiest and
dirtiest eyer taken to a shop. They were

The process of restoring a characteristic
old wooden church at Hoppcrstad, in the
Hordes district of Sogne, in Norway, has
brought to light an Interesting Norwegian
medieval relic. In a closed niche a book,
consisting of six wax tablets, was found,
carefully enclosed In a casket of wood and

ered with wax, each tablet having a thin
border, so as to hinder the tablets from
sticking together on closing the book.

The contents are chiefly drawings, made
by a fine style, representing scenes from
villago and rural life. At the end there is
a large catalogue in latin of various kinds
of animals, with a translation Into old
Norwegian; and from this it has been
conjectured that the greater portion of
the book dates from the close of the
thirteenth century. But there are indica
tions that part of the book is of earlier
date. The tablets are fastened together
at the back, and the cover is carved and
inlaid with various small pieces of
differently colored woods. The book has
been placed in the Museum of Antiquit.es
in the University of Christiania, and it is
intended to publish it shortly in f ac-simile.
