Bland, corresponding secretary of tbe
National Indian Defense association, has
received a letter from Mrs. C. Weldon, of
New York, dated (Cannon Ball, X. D.,
Oct. 8, in which a be tella something ot
tbe peculiar religious outbreak among
the Sioux. Mrs. Weldon's letter is as fol
lows: "I am on the point of going to Sit
ting Bull's camp. My object in going is
to, if possible, defeat a great evil which ia
spreading with alarming rapidity among
tbe Houx. Sitting Ball told me about it
months ago io strict confidence. But now
it is upon the lips of every Indian. It is
the belief among the Indians that a Mes
siah is coming who will destroy the
whites, bring all the dead to life, and
make the Indians once more powerful
and rulers of the land. H -cause the white
people crucified hitu formerly, ha will
now help the IndUus and be revenged on
the white people.
She Warned Kitting Hull.
"When Sitting Bull told me of it, I
thoifght be bad heard something about
the Christian religion which his mind did
not fully grasp, and I gave the concern
little attention. On examining further
into it, however, I felt deeply concerned
for the Indiana. I remembered having
read recently of one Schweinfurth, living
somewhere in Illinois, who professed to
be Christ, aud even shows the marks upon
bis hands and feet wnere a.O)0 years ago
he was crucified. I to'.d Sittin Bull, and

THc BEET SUGAR INDUSTRY.
Knronrsclni,- Krports from the Factory
nt tirsnd Island. Ncli.
Washington Citv, Oct. :0 Samples of
beet sugar have been received by the Sec
retary of agriculture from the Oxnard
factory at Grand Island, Neb., together
with reports to the .effect that everything
at tbe factory was running smoothly, and
that tbe quality of the beets was very
satisfactory. This report ia very encour
aging to producers of beets, as tbeir value
is increased in proportion to the sugar
The Capitalists Mstlslleil.
Information has been received at the
department that the capitalists iuterested
in the fsctory at Grand Island are so
thoroughly satisfied with the results at
tained so far iliut they have decided to
build two more similar factories. As
these enterprises represent a total caah
investment, of Sl.Ouu, 000. this decision af
fords a very good indication of the confi
dence felt by tbe gentlemen iuterested in
A Hie Kelt ot Ueet Land.
Something over 1,000 samples of sugar
beet have lieen received at the depart
ment from parties to whom seed was fur
nished last aprinev and the analyses
ma'te of the samples so received indicate
a very considerate belt of country in
which the sugar beet can be cultivated
with the utmost success for tbe purpose
of sugar making. Tbe increase in beet
nugar produced in France and Germany
last year over t he year previous exceeded
in amount the entire Cuban product of
the past year. We spend about 1100,000,

He Evidently Thinks Arbitral Ion Is Good,
but Preparation Is Better.
Washington Citt. Oct. 30. Maj. Gen.
Miles in his annual report gives a good
deal of space to tbe subject of coast de
fense, which is, in his opinion, tbe most
important military question now before
the people of this country, and there ap
pears to be less information on this sub
ject, and less interest taken in it than in
any other national question. The rapidly
increasing wealth in the great c ties of
tbe Atlantic, Pacific and Gulf coasts only
serves, he ssys, to court hostilities on tbe
part of foreign powers. The belief that
all international questions can be settled
by arbitration is good in theory, but dan
gerous to rely upon. There seems to be
a mistaken belief, tbe general says,' that
In case of threatened hostilities ample
time will always be given to prepare for
Will Take Twenty Tears.
At the rate of progress we are now
makintr, be believes that it would re
quire fifteen or twenty years to put our
coasts in proper condition for defense.
In conclusion, he recommends that the
sites required for coast defenses, and not
already in pOKaesMiun of tbe government,
be secured without delay, and that one
fourth of the appropriation required to
place the coast in proper condition of se
curity I made every year for the next

MONTREAL, Oct 80. Last May when

coming into town with a wagon load of
produce, when they saw a woman lying
beside tbe road. They roused ber and
asked her what she was doing there. She
said she was hunting for the road to St.
Laurenr, and had traveled for many
weeks, menti. ninjf nl sees she had visited
in lower Quebec. W miles from Mon

wagon and he would drive her to a hotel
She Was His Own Wife.
Aa she stepped into the wagon he
flashed hia tautern into ber face and
dropped it wjtb an exclamation al.nost of
terror. The woman he bad foau.t was his
owu wife, who be supposed was dead, and
whom he had not aeen for over eignteen
months. They drove her home at once,
where it was found that she was half
starved and nearly dead with cold. She
is incapable cf telling a coherent story
of her waudenuua since her escape from
the asylum fire, but bet Bufferings must
have been terrible, as ber feet and limbs
are blistered aud sore. Thara is great ex
citement in tbe village over the affair,
and the simple people look upon Mrs.
Gauthier's return as a miracle Hie will
