THE WILD JIAN OF CAMAS.
Killing1 of a Strange nnd Dreaded Creature
The celebrated wild man of the Cainim
prairie whs killed recently by some parties
traveling through the praiiie. "While
the travelers were enmped in the foothills
on the edjio .of the prnirie one of
them, ntinied Micklehnney went a few
hundred yards from camp to kill some
ducks, taking with him a loaded
with large shot. "When only a couple of
hundred yards from camp the ' Wild
Man of Camas" jumped up from his hiding
place, and, after tunning a short distance,
stopped and looked at Micklehnney
through his large, clear eyes a moment,
then, with a shriek that struck terror to
the hunter, and caused him to shudder
as the echo n sounded through the forest
lhe man, with the ferocity of a savage
beast of q jungle, made for
so fiercely that in order to insure
his own safely he emptied both barrels of
the gun into him, when he fell, apparently
dead. Micklehaney went to him,
when the strange being began to revive,
and he put his foot on the man's neck
and called to his comrades to bring an ax,
winch they did with all possible haste.
The man escaped just as they arrived,
and with a pitiful moan regained his feet
and started to run. The ax was thrown
at him, and as he turned his head to look
back it struck him in the center of the
forehead and ho dropped lifeless to the
On examination ho was found to be
rather tall, with full, clear eves, and an
extraordinarily large head ; appeared to
be about forty-five venrs of age, although
not a gray hair could be seen. The wavy
black hair of his head hung low down,
onto his body, and his bushy beard wns
about two and a half feet long. The body
was also covered with a thick growth of
hair about two inches in length. This
was also black and very fine. The finger
and too nails were two inches long, and
resembled claws more than nails. lie
was wrapped in a long robe made of rabbit
skins. The skins were sewed together
by sinews. On examining the place from
which he" made his appearanco it was
found that he had a very comfortable bed
which was made of the soft bark of sage
btush. It was under an over-hanging
rock, and well protected from the wind.
Near the bed were two rabbits which had
most likely been killed by stones.
About ten years ago an insane stage
driver left Boise City and has never since
been heard of. The "Wild Man of Camas"
may be the same, having taken up his
abode in the then desolate prairie, but
seldom visited by whites. The "Wild
man of Camas, lias, since first seen in
1873, been dreaded by the lonely traveler
and prospector, who 'will be relieved to
know that he is dead.
A fool-hardy sailor, who put to sea
from San Francisco August 19, in an 18-foot
dory, for Australia, was picked up
by a coaster oh" Queensland, in an exhausted
condition. lie had lost his instruments
and provisions by the capsizing
of his boat.
The French Ministry of Marino are
having forty-six vessels constructed at
the present moment, thirty one in the
Government dock-yards and fifteen by
private firms. Fourteen of these vessels
are ironclads, representing a value of
120,000,000 francs. Two, the Admiral
Bandin and the Formidable, will cost
11,500,000 Francs each. Eight others
will cost each more thm three-quarters
of that sum.
Tho same jealousy and ill feeling exists
between native and foreign laborers
in Germany as in other countries. A
number of Italian workmen have been
employed upon buildings in tho neighborhood
of Cologne. Ono evening while
they were in their quarters occupied with
preparations for supper a large number
qf native laborers entered the place, uncovered
the kettles, and spat in the food.
A light resulted in which tho Italians
were badly injired. Tho Germans used
knives and axes, crushed the skull of one
Of tho Italians, mangled tho leg of another

sober and frugal, and wqre in tho
babit of sending regular remittances
from their small earnings to their families
at home. "'

Hair v igor
restores, 'with the glo.s and freshness of youth,
faded or gray hair to a natural, rich brown color,
or deep black, as muy bo desired. By its use light
or red hair may bo darkened, thin hair thickened,
and baldness often, though not always, cured.
It checks falling of the hair, and stimulates &
weak anil sickly growth to vigor. It prevents and
cures scurf and dandruff, nnd heals nearly every
dWeaso peculiar to tho scalp. As a LndlcH' Hair
Dressing, tho Vinou Is unequalled ; it contains
neither oil nor dye, renders tho hair soft, glossy,
nnd silken in appearance, and Imparts u delicatu,
agreeable, and lasting perfume.
Mit. C. P. ntueiiEii writes from Kirby, 0., July
0, 1K82 : " Last fall my hair commenced falling
out, and in a short time 1 became nearly bald. I
used part of a bottle of Avnn's HAin Vioon,
which stopped tho falling of tho hair, and started
a now growth. I have now a full head of lialr
growing vigorously, and am convinced that but
for the of your preparation I should have boon
.7. W. Howkk, proprietor of the MrJrt7ntr(OMc)
Enquirer, says : Avnn's Haih Viooit Is a most
excellent preparation for the hair. I speak of It
from my own experience. Its use promotes tlio
growth of now hair, and makes It glossy and soft.
The Vioon Is also a sure euro for dandruff. Not
within my knowledge has tho preparation over
failed to glvo entire satisfaction."
Irt. ANOt'S Faiiwiairk, leader of tho
' Faiiiialrn Family ,;of Scottlsli Vocallsta,
writrs from lloslon, Mass., Feb. (5, 1880 ; " Kver
since my hair began togivosllvery ovidenceof the
cliango which tlueting time procurotli, I have used
Avkr's llAin Vioou, and so have been ublo to
maintain an nppearanco of youthfulness a matter
of considerable consequence to ministers,
orators, actors, and In fact oery ono who lives lu
tho eyes of tho public."
Mns. O.A. Piikscott, writing from 18 Elm. St.,
Charlestoion. 'Mass., Anril 14, 1881!. says: "Two
years ago about of my hair came olf.
It thinned very rapidly, and I was fast growing
bald. On using Ay Kirs Hair Vioon tho falling
stopped and a now growtli commenced, and in
about a month my head was completely covorcd
with short hair. It has continued to grow, and is
now as good as before It fell. I regularly used but
ono bottlo of tho Viuou, but now uso it occasionally
as a dressing."
"Wo havo hundreds of similar testimonials to tho
ofllcaey of Aykr's Hair Vigor. It needs but a
trial to convince the most skeptical of its value.
