STILL. ROBBING POOR LO.
Vlsoroma Protest of Indian AKrmt
SbacBfeld Asalnat Inlaw fat
Actloa r Waltea.
Washington, Xov. 5. Indian Agent
Shoenfeld, in charge of Union agency,
whose jurisdiction comprises the five
livilized tribes, protests, in his annual
report, against unlawful occupation
af the Indian lands, and urges rigid
-ongressional legislation to protect
the Indian citizen against the en
rroacbment of aggressive and grasp
ing whites. Of 2,000 complaints filed
(gainst non-citizens by Indians in the
past fiscal year a large majority were
against white men who in the past
bad intruded themselves upon the In
iians, and had gained their confidence
to a large dagrce to secure possession
rf their prospective allotments, and
ifter having secured possession re
fused either to pay rent or vacate,
thus preventing the Indians from re
viving any rents or profits there
from. Many of the Indians are too
Door to institute snit for possession,
nd, therefore, are left helpless.
The total population of the five
livilized tribes is estimated at 84.750,
somprising 20,250 Choctaws and f reed
men, 10,500 Chickasaws and freedmen.
16,000 Creeks and freed men, 35,900
herokees and freedmen, and 3,000
fieminoles, and their lands comprise
i total of 19,776,2S6 acres.
The rgent says that there is now
very reason to believe that the In
dian depredations and disturbances in
the five tribes' region are at an end.
A. few full-blooded Creeks are stren
uously opposing the allotment of
lands and have banded together and
refuse to appear to select their illV.
inents. A large majority of the
Creeks, however, have made selec
tions. The report recommends that
rongress appropriate out of the Cher
okee funds a sufficient amount to pay
the indebtedness of the nation; that
i law be passed compelling the five
tribes to adopt a uniform system of
faxing ii'-n-citizens residing an.' do
!ng business in the limits of their na
tion, and that a workhouse or ro form
it ory be established.
POISON IN CELLARS.
tolling Vearetablea aad

Says J. J. H. Gregory, the well-known
seedsman and vegetable grower: "A
cellar may be more valuable than the
building which stands on it when the
fanner has learned just how to control
its temperature and dryness for the
best ket ping of nis vegetables."
Cellars hav generally been found to
be unhealthy. Vegetables are frequent
ly left ever to rot. While rotting, car
bonic acid gas is formed. This gas is
heavier than common air, and settles
to the bottom of the cellar. It is verv
unhealthy, and people when entering
the celinr are liable to breathe it. If
sufficiently pure and breathed alone it
would soon cause death. In a section
much affected with a malignant fever
it was found that in every case where
the fever preTailed there was a cellar,
while the houses where there wer
no cellars were generally exempt.
Where cellars are thus used a cov
ered drain of proper size leading out
ward from the bottom of the cellar
should be constructed. The construc
tion should be such that the drain can
be opened and closed at pleasure. By
opening occasionally the foul air can
be drained off. It is, however, believed
that the better plan will be to abandon
the cellar altogether. A house of prop
er size can be constructed with a
double floor and double walls from
8 to 12 feet apart. Fill between
the walls with sawdust or fine earth.
Double doors should be constructed,
one in either end, say. 5x2 feet. The
inner door may be constructed to slide.
Houses constructed as above gave en
tire satisfaction and were free from
the deleterious effects of carbonic acid

Deafneaa Canaot Be Cared
by local applications, as they cannot reach
the diseased portion of the ear. There is
only one way to cure deafness, and that is
by constitutional remedies. Deafness is
caused by an inflamed condition of the mu
cous lining of the Eustachian Tube. When
this tube gets inflamed you have a rumbling
sound or imperfect hearing, and when it is
entirely closed deafness is the result, and
unless the inflammation can be taken out
and this tube restored to its normal con
dition, hearing will be destroyed forever;
nine cases of of ten are caused by catarrh,
which is nothing bat an inflamed condition
of the mucous surfaces.
We will give One Hundred Dollars for any
case of Deafness (caused by catarrh that
cannot be cured by Hall's Catarrh Cure.

An excellent plan is shown in the cut.
Set out small stakes in the exact spot
where each tree is to stand. Make a
light tripod, as is shown in the cut,
with a cord and weight, arranged as
shown. Set the tripod over the stake
so that the weight at the end of the
cord will be exactly over the stake.
Now pull up the stake and dig the hole

New York, Nov. 5. The Amerieai
line steamer St. Faul limped into port
yesterday morning under the port en
gine, after having incurred the most
serious experience -jf her career.
On October 31 the St. Paul struck a
supposed submerged wreck, carrying
away the starboard propeller, causing
the engines to race so fiercely that
the shaft broke and all connections
snapped. The starboard engines were
so severely wrecked that they are use
less, and it will take six months to
replace them with a new set. The af
ter outboard shaft tubing was carried
away. The ship is leaking considera
bly. When the accident occurred the
cabin passengers were quite excited,
but they were soon restored to quiet
by the prompt report that the steam
er was in no danger. The wind was
blowing heavily from the northeast,
with a high cross-sea. The engineers
examined the breaks and disconnected
the starboard engines, and the St,
Paul proceeded on her voyage under
the port engines at a reduced speed-

A creamery patron, who milks cows
when butter fat is high and beef low,
but turns his attention to beef when
butter fat is low, says: "Profits
scarcely- visible to the naked eye.
What shall we do to be saved?" Breed
ing for milk one year and beef the
next is a suicidal policy that no en
terprising breeder would dare prac
tice. By this haphazard method, the
above patron realized for butter fat
$19.63 per cow per annum. The Kan
sas Agricultural college scrub herd,
pushed along dairy lines, brought an
average of $37.75 per cow per annum.
This difference of $18.12 per ccw is
what would have been visible to the
naked eye, had his cows been handled
as the college cows were handled.
"What shall we do to be saved?" Set

study the business in all the details,
find out what others are doing in the

Introduction of the Potato.
The potato has been in cultivation in
civilized countries for less than 400
years, says a recent writer. It was
brought over to Europe by the Spanish
when they wtre colonizing America, in
, 1553. It was introduced into Ireland
in 15S5 or 156 by Sir Walter Ea'.eigh,
when some of his colonists were return
ing to Ireland from California or Vir
! ginia, after which it was used by tha
j poorer class of the Irish as one of their
t articles cf diet. But- it was not until
tfce latter part of the eighteenth cen
tury that the potato came into gen
eral use; that is. about 150 years ago,
ano the great acreage devoted to this
crop to-day has been developed sine
that time. It appears that during' the
latter part of the eighteenth century a
faniin in Scotland caused the potato
to be very largely grown there, and
taw made its use become more general.

Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hallows, of Peckham St., Globe Village, Pall Eireti
Mass., have cause to thank Dr. Greene's Nervura for restoring: to health, and
probably preserving the life of their little son. Almost from infancy Everett
Hallows was troubled with indigestion and nervous troubles, and nothing
seemed to help him. Finally Dr. Greene's Xerviira was recommended and tried
with success. A few bottles were sufficient to effect a cure, and to-day the little
one is enjoying the best of health. By the use of Dr. Greene's Xerrurm tin
sickly child was transformed into a happy, heart7, robust boy.
Thousands of other children can thank Dr. Greene and his wonderful
remedy for the strength and health they enjoy. Children to whom It Is gtrem

lives. Parents should realize that it is their duty to give it to every child w bee

fits, epilepsy, and St. Vitus' dance. Yet no child would be troubled by Uses
if Dr. Greene's Kervura were given when the first symptoms appear.
