GAPERS' NURSE SUES.
A.sks Damages Because She Was Not
Admitted to Washington
? A dispatch from Washington tc
the News and Courier says that con
sielcrable interest is being shows
there in the suit filed a day or twi
ago in 'the supreme court of the DisF
trict of Columbia, by the nurse oJ
! John (.}. Capers, because slie was denied
admission to Crash's Theatre, one
of the leading- play-houses in thv
A few days ago Mr. Capers purchased
tickets for his two little girls
to attend a performance at the theatre
above named and sent, the chil?
dren along with their nurse. That was
I as far as they could go. At the dooi
* tho woman was denied admittance, beJ
ing told that colored people, under n<
circumstances, were admitted t<? thai
*i The nexI step in the matter wn>
when tho nurse filed suit in the courts
of that city, claiming dainaires in tlu
sum ol' JfvUNlO. It i.s recognized thai
when the case comes to trial perhaps
a new ruling may be established
governing the admittance of whitc
and colored persons in the theatre
generally. If the court should decide
that the woman is entitled to r.v
cover it would mean that thereaftci
| negroes would be alio we :1 to bu,>
s tickets and secure entrance into an\
P of the leading theatres of Washing(ton?-which
they are not allowed t<
do now. Negroes could sit side by side
with White men or white women, and
there would apparently be no restriction
whatever upon the amusement
places they might attend, providee;
tliey could pay the price. It would bv
manifestly impracticable to exclude
, t'hem, because al this time, while none
of the respectable hotels in Washing,
i ton lake negro guests?because it
may always be said that there is n<
room?the same thing would not g<
with the theatre. As soon as a big attraction
is booked?which is often
elone weeks ahead?any one desiring
to secure, seats could" no to the bo.\
ollice and arrange for them, as it now
done, and there would be no way tc
kevA> from selling tickets to negroes
Not only the Washington hotels
but amusement places generally, have
protested that they do not want negroes
and I heir trade, and 'that the\
! get along considerably better without
SHOOTING NEAR GREENWOOD
Negro Seriously Wounds Mr. J. Belton
Hargrove?Talk of Lynching
iMiliege Colt, a negro, was" lodged
, in jail in (SreenwoodT, being sent u|
by Magistrate London Brooks, charged
with shooting Mr. .). Helton Hargrove,
a white farmer livimr on th;
Green \vood-\Salmia line.
From reports, it seems that Mr
. Hargrove was loking for some negroes
? who had'been in a fuss with some ol
his tenants. In the search he came
upon the Colt negro, whom he toolto
be one of those who had been ir
the i'uss. Coll had a single barre
shotgun at the time and Hargrove
K was carrying a Winchester rifle. Coll
says Mr. Hargrove shot at him witl
<the rifle, giving him a f'lesh wound ir
the side and was ready to shoot again
wiren he, Colt, used the shotgun, hitting
Mr. Hargrove full in the fac<
with a charge of number six she>t al
a short distance away. Hargrove was
\ slill living Sunday, but was in a ver\
^ serious condition.
INDIAN BOW AND ARROW.
i Materials From Which They Were
f Made?The Quiver.
$1 The ibows of Ihe North American
)' Indians were made of wood, 'bone ot
horn, Sernie times the bow was made
of a single piece of wood, sometimes
of several pieces: perhaps it was ol
! ? "wood alone, or it might, be backed b\
sinew or by the skin of some animal
The material for the weapon wa.;
gathered, says Forest and Stream
| whenever it was possible, and a man
might have in his lodge a number ol
sticks each of which he intended ulti
Innately to fashion into a bow, or il
he dieT not live long enough for this
the bow wood would descend to his
he?irs. As the most important imple
ment of hunter or -warrior the bov
was highly valued.
Bows of bone were made sometime:
of sections of the rib of large ani
i nials, spliced and glued logether am
were usually backed by sinew. Thos<
y-' of Ihe antler of Ihe elk were some
times in a single piece, and at olhei
limes in sections, bevelled a I Ihe end
and neatly glued and spliced. Bow,
of horn were often made of severa
.pieces similarly glued and spliml. but :TII
, tlii' horns of I lie mountain sheep wore 1
?J sometimes cut into long, and slender , BY
roils which were laid together, glued PR
amr backed by sinew. ! -y
Another type of sheep horn bow <$ui
1 was in a s-ingle piece, the horn being Ad
cut in a spiral Ironv base of horn to fee
1 point, this spiral being steamed or '|
' boiled and then straightened and aU(
} caused to dry straight. Rows such as j^jn
these were unusual, but they were al- "WJ
so very powerful, and never wore out. be
! On the other band, it is said that C*oi
5 bows maide of bone or of antler were ber
more for show than for use. They n<>>
- were good to look at and for a time o'c
, were effective, but after a few years can
became dry and brittle. Ad
Next to the hew, and* in fact so od.
> much a part of i; that it cannot be (
separated from it. is (he arrow, a dai
- complex implement tire development
of which we may imagine to have
been very slow, and which no doub!.
was well advance-:! toward its present !
. , jorm before the bow was thought of. |
; j e may farcy t!:e arrow to be the '
. ouiirrow!!i of simple stabbing in- j,
st rument, which developed into a ' ^
; dart to I),, thrown, similar to certain!^.1
toys still in use among (lie children
. ol our plains Indians. '(
> I he arr</v consisted ol" three essen- ?
. lial parts, the head, the shaft and the ?
feathers. Konvet-imes the shaft was ?X,
campound, consisting of more than
' one piece of wood. The primitive -I
head was very various. The feather- j
- iny is comparatively a mode in inven>
tion, so much so that today traditions
exist as (u its development and the
I various stops toward the improved
leathering of modern limes are given. n.n
Kven within the last forty or fifty ' (
1 years the children among our wi'Ider
! i 'i ihes have employed* very primitive j'(,
i forms of arrows, using in their huntintr
of little birds arrows without sat'
heads and having merely a sharpened,
tire hardened point, arrows without bei
' featners and again arrows feathered (|.p
' after an earlier method, of which,
as pi act iced by adults, we know only ,
1 hy tradition.
r The bowring was usually made of |'
- twisted" sinew, sometimes put on the )-,(
bow green and allowed to dry there.
' In the southwest, however, the string Ou
was sometimes made of vegetable fi- 1 .
bre. In other sections it might be (
made of strips of rawhide or in!es- :hv
tines of animals.
I he bow and its arrows were almost
always carried r.u the back in
caves made ol the skins of animals.
I he bow case was a long and nar
row bag. just wide enough to admit
the unstrung bow. Immediately beneath
that and parallel !o it. both
cases usually being attached to a
stifi rod of wood nearly as long as the
quiver, was the shorter, wider bag for
the arrows. It wjis slightly lom-er
than the arrow, and when arrows p>
were to be drawn from it they were
grasped about the feathers, so as to ^
t prevent this important part of the C(
dart from being ruffled.
Among ihe plains tribes in old
' times the best quivers and bow cases
^ were made from the skin of the otter,
} but the liide of the panther was also
"ighly valued for this punpose, and I
^ ihow cases and quivers were frequentI
l.v made from the hide of the buffalo
, calf. In later times (he skins of cat- ?
tie were used for the same purpose,
and I have an old bow ease an 1
