BATHING WITH INDIANS.
An Experience That Tried the Nerve
of a White Visitor.
The Indian. of the Pacific const evi
dently enjoy their "sweat iM'ths." A
correspondent who once took one of
these baths with a party of big Jndhm
'friends thu rlencribes the cereiuoiiT :

upread grass matting covered w'tb ! of the estate was given to the Mc
earth. They lighted a fire before this j Crea. family. Two servants, whose
hut and tented Severn! large round i names are mentioned in the document,

house and invited me to jolu lu the

The Indians were Htnndlng about the

Then I wrapped my drapery about me

In r.ewsr.niK-r accounts of railway
coiiision-i one frequently encounters
"On heeing the danger the engineer
whistled down brakes' and reversed
the lever "
As a matter of fact, the expression
"dow n brakes" Las been obsolete for a
king time. What tbe engineer reaily
does when a collision seems impending
is to shut o!T steam, apply tbe air brake
aud open tbe sand valves. All this
takes about five t.eeonds. acd in that
time all that human effort is able to
accomplish for the train and pas-en
ttera o-ay be dot.e. Raiiway engineers
are instructed ur-ver to reverse tbe en
gine after tbe air brake has been up
plied, bec ause the reversal reduces the
res.stlng power of tbe brakes.-Harper's

daughter of M. E. Ingalls, the rail
road millionaire of Cincinnati, is to
marry Herr voti Bulow, until a few
days ago with the German embassy
at Washington, now in the foreign of

interesting because the kaiser recent

should not marry foreigners. It is said
that Herr von Bulow is sufficiently in
