Paget Bonnd is undoubtedly ono of the
most beautiful sheets of water in the
world. Its bosom is as unruffled as that

At least three large cities will be trib
utary to the sound, I am sure, viz., Ta
coina, Seattle and Port Townsond. I
will speak of each more fully in another
letter. To say that real estute is active
is just simply about as powerful ns the
remark made by the frontiersman who
came home from his lmying one after-
WE SOAKED UP A HEAR,
noon and found that the Indians had
burned up his buildings, massacred his
wife, driven off his milch cows and
killed his children. Ho looked over the
bloody scene, and then said to himself
with great feeling: "This, it seems to
rne, is perfectly ridiculous."
I drove out with a real estate man for
two days at Seattle, not buying, but just
riding and enjoying the scenery while
we allowed prices gently to advance and
our whiskers to rtow. Finally I asked
him if he knew of a real "snap," us Her
bert Spencer would call it, within the
reach of a joor man. He said there was
a bargain out toward Lake Washington,
and if I wanted to see it we would go
out there. I said I would like to see it,
for, if really desirable, I might buy some
outside property. We drove quite awhile
through the primeval forest, and after
baiting our team nnd eating some lunch
which we had with us we resumed our
journey, scaring up a bear on the way,
which 1 was assured, however, was a
tame bear. At last we tied the team,
and, walking over the ridge, we found
a lot fatting west, 73 feet front, which
could be hail then at $1,500. I don't
suppose you could get it at that
now, for it is within a stone's throw of
the power house and cable running to
Lake Washington from the city.
A friend of mine was telling about
how he lost a trade in Spokane Falls.
He had the refusal for a week of a 24
foot business lot "at 300." He thought
and worried and prayed over it and
wrote home about it and finally decided
to take it On the last day of grace he
counted up his money ana finding that
he had just the amount, he went over to
the agent's office with it to close the
"Have you the currency with you to
make the trade all cash?" asked the agent.
"Yes, sir, I have the whole $.IH) in
currency,'' said my friend, drawing him
self np to his full height and putting his
cigar back a little farther in his cheek.
"Five hundred dollars!" exclaimed the
agent with a low, gurgling laugh; "the
lot is $500 per front foot. I didn't sup
pose you was Pan-American ass enough
to think yon could get a business lot in
Spokane for $.100. You can't get a load
of sand for your children to play in at
We have been riding on the cars to
day, and ever and anon tho blue water!
gladdens the eye, the dark pines sough
ing in the quiet air, and far away in
solemn grandeur, the grandeur of eternal
silence, knowing a heap yet giving noth
ing away, we see old Mount Tacoma.
When we get over to Seattle we will
have to call it Mount Rainier or go away
from there. I've forgotten at what ixjint
on the road yon have to change timuand
call it Rainier, but I shall try to be safe
and talk about the climate till I find out
I met with a medical and surgical
curiosity today on the cars. It consisted
of a young man who is compelled to take
his nourishment through a rubber tube
which leads directly into the stomach
through the side. I had heard of some
thing like it and in my extensive medi
cal library had read of cases resembling
it, but not entirely like it. The con
ductor, who had 6hown me a great many
little courtesies already, invited me into
the baggage car, where he had the young
man, in order that I might see him.
The subject was a German of about 20
years of age, of dark complexion and
phlegmatic temperament He stood
probably about five feet and four inches
high in his stocking feet and did not at
tract mo as a person of prominence until
the conductor informed me that he ate
through the side of bis vest.
It seems that about two years ago the
boy had some little gastric disturbance
from eating a nocturnal watermelon or
callow cucumber. As I understand it,
he, in an unguarded moment, called a
physician who aimed to be hU own
worst enemy, but who contrived to work
in the public on the same basis, using no
favoritism whatever. He was a doctor
who has since gone into the gibbering
industry in alcoholic circles. He had
the previous evening been out late, as he
informed his wife, acting as the chair
man of a reception committee, selected
for the purpose of meeting and showing
the proper courtesies to a brand new cit
izen of the United States, but, as a mat
ter of fact, he had been appointed by
himself to be tho custodian of a bright
blue, disorderly jag of great potency.
So it hapjiened that tro tl day he was
called to the lwlside of this plain, juve
nile colic, the enemy ha had taken into
his mouth the evening before had, as a
matter of fact, rifled hU jiseudo brains,
and being bitterly disappointed in them
had no doubt failed to return them.
Therefore, "Doc," as he was affection
ately called by the widowers through
the neighborhood, was entirely unfit to
prescribe. Ho did so, however, just the
same. That kind of a doctor is gener
ally willing to rush in where angels fear
to tread. He cheerfully prescribed for
the boy and, in fact, filled the prescrip
tion himself. The principal ingredient
of this compound was carbolic acid. A
man who can, by mistake, administer
carbolic acid and not even smell it must
ao nis thinking by means of a sort of
But he did it anyhow.

the lining coming off as a result of This
liquid holocaust, and then afterward
growing together again.
The parents now decided to change
physicians. So after giving "Doc" a cow
and settling up with him another phy
sician was called in. He 6aid there was
no way but to reach the stomach from
the exterior, and, although hazardous, it
might save the patient's life. Speedy
action must be taken, however, as the
young man was already getting up quite
I can imagine Old Man Gastric sitting
there patiently, day after day, every little
while looking at his watch and wonder
ing as he sang:
Wo are waiting, waiting, waiting.
Finally, as he sits near the cardiac ori
fice, where tho sign has been recently
v i TUE ELEVATOR IS NOT RUNNISO, j
a light bursts through the walls of his
house and he hears voices. Hastily
throwing one of the coats of the stomach
over bis hhoulders, he springs to his feet
just iu time to catch alont a nickel's
worth of vara beef tea down tho back
of his neck.
The patient now wears about two feet
of inch hose, ono end of which is intro
duced into the upier nnd anterior lobe
of the stomach. In tho other he wears
a plain cork stopir. I asked him if
he would join me iu a drink of water
from the ice cooler, and be said he would
under the circumstances. He said that
ho had just taken one, but would not
mind taking one more with me. He then
disarranged his clothing, took out his
new Goodyear esophagus, and, remov
ing the stopper, inserted a neat little tin
funnel with which lie was able to intro
duce the water. It gently settled down
nnd disappeared in his depths, mid then,
putting awav the garden hose, he accept
ed a dollar and gave me a history of the
case as I have set forth above, or sub
stantially so nt least.
I could not help thinking of him after
ward. He dwelt in my mind in a curi
ous way. I tried to imagine lihu on his
way to Europe, over a f tormy sea; the
surprise of his stomach when it found
itself frustrated and beaten nt its own
game, and all that. Then I thought of
him as the honored guest of some great
corporation or club and at the banquet,
when tho president, in a few well chosen
words, apparently born of the moment,
but really wearing trousers, says, "Gen
tlemen, we have with us this afternoon,
etc., etc.," and then rising, all the mem
bers join in a toast to the guest. Touch
ing his glass to theirs and then, grace
fully unreeling bis garden hose, he takes
from his pocket a sma'd funnel and, gen
tly sixpiug the generous wine through his
tin pharynx, he begins his well digested
Nature did not do much for this poor
lad, but science has stepped in and made
him prominent. He went to bed un
known. He awoke to find himself noted.
He went to sleep with ordinary tastes.
He arose with no taste at all. Thus,
through the medical treatment of a
typhoid idiot. fr a disease which was in
no way malignant or, as I might say,
therapeutic, lie becomes a man of parts
and stands next to the nobility of Eu
rope, not having to work.
Last sumiiK r. in Paris, on the street I
saw a man who played the trombone
by means of a bullet hole in his trachea,
but I do not think it elevated me and
spurred me on to nobler endeavor nnd
made a better m::n of mc, as did this sim
ple hearted young man who. made a liv
ing by eating publicly through a tin
horn, and who actually earned his bread
by eating it. 1 ho; that tho medical
faculty will make his case a study and
try to do better next time. That is tho
only moral I can think of ifi connection
with this storv.
TKEATINCI THE FREAK.
Yesterday as wo pn.sed a little red de
pot 1 saw a young squaw leaning up
against the building and crying. As we
moved along 1 saw a plain black coffin,
a cheap affair of piue, daubed with wal
nut stain to make it look still cheaper, I
presume. I had never seen an Indian,
even a sqnaw, weeping liefore, and so
the picture remained with mo a long
tinw an"i may for a long time yet to
come. .1 had always read that the In
dian never wept, but I have proved that
to be wrong, i'osdbly, however, civili
zation has affected the noble red man so
thnt tho women do tho working nnd
weeping while the men do the drinking
and heavy old sledging.
Av,yw;y, tho common languago of
grief made all the passengers at once
relatives of the stricken young Pocahon
tas, and, as she stood ther,o with her
little common sense moccasins, all di
sheveled and down at the heel, and
leaned her dark head against tho old
red dejMit with her f;ice hidden in the
red and black shawl that an old shirt full
of blue liorries would easily buy, her
grief made her graceful, and the smokers
in our car mostly let their cigars go out.
I've never been a pronounced friend of
the Indian, ns those who know me best
will agree. I have claimed that though
he waTErst to locate in this country he
did not develop the lead or do assessment
work even, so the thing wjis open to re
location. The white man has gone on
and found mineral in places, made a big
output, and is still working day and
night shifts, while the Indian id shiftless
day and night, fo far as I have observed.
But when we see the poor devils buy
ing our coftins for their dead, even though
they may go very hungry for days after
ward, nnd, as they fade away forever as
a people, striving to conform to our cus
toms and wear susjKjnders and join in
prayer, common humanity leads us to
think solemnly of their melancholy end.
And, along with all this, wo are led
to ask, Why wero we endowed with
powers nnd capabilities wliich enabled
us to put the red man to sleep in two
rounds? Why was the red brother left
to study 4he trail of the bear and neglect
his soul, while we are enabled with light
ning rapidity to calculate the movements
of the planets and throw salt on the tail
of the most restless comet? .
Sometimes it hardly seems right.
P. S. I will speak 6till further of
Puget sound in my next letter, together
with its great possibilities, resources and

What an Analysis of b'amj les From
the College Reveals.

Four simples of water from as many
wells about the premises of Augustana
college, which has of late be ;n infected
with a typhoid fever epidemic, wore re
cently submitted by the college authori
ties to Prof. J. H. Southwell, oounty su
perintendent of schools, for mi iroscopical
analysis, the belief being that impurities
existed in the water, to which the fatal
malady was largely attributed. The re

bears out this hejjef- It is a ipcnded in
Microscopical examination of four sain
pies of water labeled Nos. 1, 3, 3 and 4:

From Prof. A. W. Williamson, who
furnished Prof. Southwell the sampled,
an A nous representative gathered some
explanatory information concerning them.
'Sample No. 1," he said, "was taken
from the well at the ladies' hall, and used
chiefly for drinking purposed, by Profes
sor and Mrs. Foss and ten lady pupils,
also by Mrs. Ford and family of six not
connected with the college. Of these
eighteen but two had the disease and
these very slightly. No. 2 waf from the
new well by the college building. Owing
to advice of some professors wiio did not
like its location, it was but little used by
students rooming in the buildirg, though
somewhat used by most of thote who had
the sickness. It was, however, used none
by commercial pupils rooming i.nd board
ing elsewhere, none of whom had the
sickness. No. 3 was the well et Dr. Cer
vin's house, and No. 4 the veil at the
Augustana book concern. Both of these
were considerably used by students.
None of those using water fiora them
who did not board or room in the college
building were sick , though a n ajonty of
those who were affected prohab'y con
sumed some water from each well. F
L. Peterson, one who died from the sick
ness, scrupulously sustained trim using
any water from any of these wells, and
Gust Swansen, and I think sorie others
who died, used chiefly the city water and
did not use aDy water from either well 1
or well 2."
Prof. Williamson stated tiiat Prof.
Southwell had informed him I hut he re
garded No. 1 as the worst and No. 3 as
the least contaminated of the samples so
far as the analysis indicated.

Alone in a small, tmriMc-dnwD shan'y
on Sixteenth avenue neir Thiiteenth
street, lives an old woman who has not a
relative near to lend a helping linnd. Her
name is Mrs. Jul.ns Iterjrlund. Ten years
ago she lived happily with her husband
iu Davenport. At that time site was a
fine looking woman, hut a circumstance
occurred that completely broke her down
in mind and hca'lu. Without any cause
her husband descried her. Leaving her
alone at home lie went out, and since

She remained at her Davenport home
and waited for hU return for wet ks and
months, but in vain, for he never re
turned. The anxiety at the absence of her hus
band caused her to lose hi r mind to an
extent, and she finally decided to move
away from the home where she had had
so mii'-h happiness and nrsery. She had
a little money and came over to MoHdc,
hut was unable to find any friend who
wonM frive her a shelter, and the old
house where she now is was ofTcred her
for the smnll sum of a month, and
she moved what furniture she hud into
