ALL KINDS FINISHING LUMBER
Another life is sacrificed to the rum
traffic. Another poor besotted, crazed,
appetite-overpowered wretch is seized
and thrown into prison, there to await
a lonr and expensive trial for murder.
The jury Is expected to find him guilty
and the judge to pronounce sentence of
death upon him, while the true
criminals in the drama are to escape
with not oven a censure. They have
paid their license to mako drunkards,
and why should they heed tho law
against selling to drunkards? A near
neighbor to the prisoner referred to
died within this year; drank himself to
death. Tho saloon stripped his family
of support, and at last his poor
miserable life in his youth was yielded
up to tho saloon curse, and saloons go
unpunished for selling to drunkards in
violation of law.
People of Wood county who is the
murderer of tho prisoner's wife? Will
the court condemn him to death or will
they go to the source, and cause thoso
men who sold him lntoxlcants,to answer
for the crime? They knew when they
sold him liquor that he was dangerous
when drunk, yet they gladly sold him
what they know would transform him
into a fiend for the sake of a little gain,
regardless of tho result. All the
muidersand nearly till the crime and
pauperism tiro children of the saloon.
Did our law makers realize when they
prohibited selling to drunkards that i1
's a greater wrong to sell to thoso who
have not the habit than to thoso
already ruined by intemperance?
The question must arise to every
thinking mind. Of what uso are the
saloons? And the answer comes, of
no uso whatever. But tho injury it
does tho world cunuot be estimated.

WIPE MUEDER AT LEMOYHE.
Thomas Gugun was taken to the
county jail at Bowling Green Thurs
day charged with tho murder of his
wifo. who was found dead from gun
shot wounds on Tuesday afternoon
by a neighbor. Gagaa had been on a
protracted spree, aud says he went
home Sunday night and tried tho door
and found it fastened; that soon after
he tried it again and as it opened he
stepped in, he says, and there saw his
wife standing with a shotgun In her
hand, pointed at him: ho made a dive
for the gun; a struggle ensued; the
gun was discharged; his wife was shot;
and he loft the house. A much more
probable version Is that tho besotted
wretch went homo, quarreled with his
wife, took the gun down and Bhot her.
Be that as it may, there was a 14
year old boy, son of tho couple, in bed.
Ho says ho heard tho shot and jumped
out of bed, but before he got dressed
heard his mother go up stairs. He
went to her and she said nothing about
being shot, but lay down and told him
to hustle to Toledo and get his four
sisters (all grown up young ladies who
work in tho city), and bring thtam
homo. Tho little fellow went to Le
Moyno and took tho first train for
Toledo; but being young and inexperi
enced, and as some of the passenger
traitiH do not stop at LeMoyne, ho and
the girls did not got back until Tues
In the meantime the poor woman
lay at home without anyone to render
hur tho least assistance, and finally
died, no ono knows just when.
Tuesday afternoon a neighbor wont
to the house and discovered tho dead
body of the old lady. He aroused tho
neighborhood, and Tom GagHii was
finally found hidden in a corn shock
out in a field. Ho pretended to bo
dazed und half crazy, at first claiming
ho did not know his wife was shot;
but finally told the story given above.

A very plpncant and openhearted peo
jlo aro theso Capo York Eskimo. Ono
would expect to find them gloomy and
nnhnppy, liko the icy fastnesses of their
nativo Greenland. Their l'rame of mind,
on tho contrary, is vory different. When
they first flighted the Kite from their
hillsldo tents they give her a joyous
greeting. "Kymo! Kymol" or some
thing resembling that word, they shouted
in hearty tones. They seemed to havo
no fear that tho visit of strangers boded
All tho timo aboard the ship thoy were
smiling and laughing. These people
havo never had any Christian teachings,
and almost the only white men they ever
see are tho whalers. Yet they are
scrupulously houest. In trading with
them members of tho expedition passed
round among them needier, knives and
many articles as precious to them an
dinmonda to an American. Everything
All the men abonrd the ship who had
been whaling declared that no Yak had
eTer beou known to tnko anything that
was not his. The whole forty-eight
peoplo swarmed over the vessel for two
days and not a single article was missed.
It was very different in the Danish
settlements There everything was tied
up or itowcd below aa soon as any Es
kimo came aboard.
There was only ono thing that could
have been construed into theft at Capo
York. A Yak walked into the cook's
galley and grabbed a piece of bacon
from the pan and devoured it. In their
settlements, however, the food appeared
to be common property a rule which
may prevail during prosperity. It was
noticed that thoy brought aboard birds
and blubber for sustenance while they
remained on the ship, but it did not
seem to be tho exclusive property of any
one. Whoever was hungry helped him
elf. Looking at theso Eskimos, who are en
tirely beyond the influence of civiliza
tion, who live, as ono might say, "on
their own hook," one is tempted to ask
whether the Danish rule is such a bene
ficent thing for the Greenlanders far
ther south. There does not seem to be
bo much happiuesa in the latter quarter.
Tho onlr advantage possusscd by the
Danish Eskimo is that he has a better
market for his goods. A few hundred
yeara of civilization havo notdoue much
else for him, except to give.him a liberal
strain of European blood.
What these Cape Yoik Enkiraos need
in a material 'way is wood, and per
haps gnus aud powder. Civilization can
do little else for them. No signs of a
rebellion could be soen, but they evi
dently have traditions, superstition.", and
perhaps a god, for all their affairs aro
In tho Uiob of forty-eight people, all
bargaining, there was no instance of an
Eskimo coveting any article secured
by one of his fellows, nor was there a
single dispute as to property. On no oc
casion, as far as seeu, did any Eskimo
lose his or her temper.
The husband and wife seemed to have
separate property. All was not owned
by the m.in. Sometimes a wifi went
ashore to get fresh articles of trade be
longing to her husband, but on her re
turn she would never part with them,
however tempting an offer w:w inalle,
nntil she consulted him. Hpr own pos
sessions, however, such ns bone needles,
thimbles, necklaces, etc., she sold with
out consulting him. The bargaining of
the children for their toys was not inter
fered with in the least by tho old people.
The couples aro very fond of each
other and aro tremendously proud of
their children. Boston Herald.

Of late years there has been much talk
of tunning hides by electricity, and sev
eral method:! havo been tried, but with
indifferent success. There is no doubt,
however, but that electricity does greatly
aid in tho tanning procens. In the old
days of tanning, tho hides, after being
delinked and made ready, were placed
in the tan vats, and there allowed to re
main untouched and nudisturbed for
from nine to twelve months, and in homo
coses even longer, until tho tannin in
tho liquors, thoroughly uniting with the
hides, had converted them into leather.
Bnt after a time it was discovered that
by putting tho hides into a revolving
wheel or drum, which had first been par
tially filled with the tan liquors, the timo
necessary to convert them iuto leather
was greatly shortened. New York Ad
