Tattooing Among Alaska Indians. '
A man who had passed mnoh timo in
trapping and hunting iu Alaska says:
Although tho Yukon Indians havo
abandoned many of their old customs,
under tho teaching of occasional mis
sionaries, all of them still keep to tho
queer habit of tattooing. Tho way
they do this is different from any I
ever saw or heard of. Instead of prick
ing tho stuff in with sharpened bones
or needles, they mako a pusto out of
charcoal and grease, soak a thread in
it, punch a noodle through tho flesh so
that it conies out nt a different hole
from tho ono whero it entered, and then
draw tho thread through under tho
skin. The operation is painful, for tho
llesh swells up and looks very much In
flamed. ' Men tattoo only their hands
nud wrists with tbo pictures of tho nob
ler animals or fish, but tho women tat
too their faces also. Thcso latter begin
tho process when they nro quito young,
making birds, turtles, or somo other in
significant things on their hands and
wrists, while they draw lines of differ
ent kinds on their chins and the lower
part of tholr chocks. As n rule, this
tattooing is dono entirely in blue, but
now and then thero Is an Indian who
- has dotted rod spots through tho blue.

The Phlllstlno's Objection to tha An
It is related of the champion bad lit
lo boy of America that ho reached tho
acme, or took the iio, for badness by
saying ono day: "Muzzer, I wish thtft
pa woirld get a new wife." "Why, my
son?" "Coz, I'm tired of always sco
in' you about." Tho Philistine in gen
eral and his British brother in particu
lar is liko this little boy. All objects
familiar to him from childhood he wish
es to havo cleared away; he hates tho
antique; ho does not fool its charm or
understand its poetry; and if ho must
live in nn old building ho endeavors by
moans of ntnring point and glaring Tar
nish to give it a falso air of brand new
ness. He is tired of seeing old objects
about; nay, morn, ho hntes them with
all his heart. Templo Bar was not in
London tho nuisance or obstruction that
it was represented to be, but there was
an inimenso majority of Philistines In
London who became absolutely wild to
destroy it. When It was gono they
created in its place an ugly, silly mon
ument to its memory, which incumber
ed tho street In precisely tho sanioplaco
and quito as much as tho Bur haduono.
I havo met with a practical busluosg
man who pretended to bo a critic In
architecture and gifted with taste, lie
declared to mo with heat that every
building whatever over 100 years old
should be destroyed. Corrc.wno'cMCe

that the writer nood not go at far aa
India for an illustration, aa the women
of America are rocognlcablo by the
male system of buttoning from left to

French colonization of Louisiana, A
lady insista that her sex button from
