The Finger Null..
No baud can be, perfect when the nails
are not properly attended to and well kept.
They ought to be most carefully cut with
pair of scissors made for tho purpose
which rounds thera off at the corners. The
skin at the base of tho nails should be
pushed down with a soft towel each time
the bands are washed. Never force the
skin down with a knife or any sharp In
strument. If the aliove plan is adhered to
there is nochance of "nig nails" appearing;
they only come when one omits to push
down the skin. The nails ought to pass
oeyond the finger points and not be cat too
short. Clean them with a piece of fine
flannel well rubbed with soap. This is a
far better plan than using a nail brush.
After cleaning the nails and pushing
down the skin they ouht to be polished.
This is quite an easy matter, as the most
exquisite little boxes arc now sold for
few shillings containing all the necessary
appliances for the toilet of tho nails.
A Pretty Hsby Basket.
I should like to tell howl made a very
pretty baby basket at a cost of only a few
cents. Procure some itiff pasteboard, cut
two eight sided pieces as lar.ro as you want
tbe bottom of your basket to be, cover both
on oneside with pink or blue liningeambrio
and overhand them together neatly. If de-
sireo. more uelirare.use thin white muslin to-f
cover iue cam uric;. ow cut sixteen pieces
to be covered in the same way for the aides,
having the bottom of each piece just wide
enough to fit on the eight sided piece, and
alanting It out toward the top to make the
latter about an inch wider than the bot
tom. After these pieces are covered over
band them together to form a circle, sew
the bottom in, add cushions and pockets
to please the fancy and edge the top with
cord, plaited ribbon or Lice. One can make
ths basket as costly as she pleases, but aa
oscribed it is dainty enough forapriuoess.

Jack, Red Clond, and a lot of fanatics

A Carrier's Alarming Report.
Omaha, Neb., Nov. 21. An Indian from
Wounded-Knee gives information which
bas caused tbe agents and all to pnt on a
more rerlous look. Coming ia yesterday
afternoon he reported that the bostiles at
Wounded-Kneo werjjill carrying on
their dances, antf tbatTuey bud beard of
the arrival of the military; but what is of
ninch more importance to the agents,
they have strapped on their guns and are
dancing fully armed. They declare they
will meet the soldiers, and will not hesi
tate to go into battle with them. Reports
relative to the Indians declaring their
willingness to fight for their religious
erase have come iu frequently, but up to
this time were simply rumors.
Why Not Let Thena Daneef
This information comes direct, however,
from a sourco which Agent Royer pro
nounces trustworthy, the man who car
ried it being one of the agent's own car
riers. "I think it Is Just as well that 'the
people outside be placed in possession of
the exact foots in this case," said Mr.
Royer. "It is not worth while to deny
further that the trouble is imminent.
Kvery one of these hostiles is heavily
loaded with ammunition, and they will
nse it. I have been among them before."
Tbe agent said tbe dances should be
stopped, nnd if thev were there would be
bloodshed. Gen. Brooke himself reports
it almost impossible to get new informa
tion; In fact, there is nothing more than
the certain determination of the Indians
to resist to the Inst any attempt to stop
A CORRESPONDENT'S CONCLUSIONS.
Dlatanea Seems to Lend Red Paint to tho
Chicago, Nov. 21. A correspondent of
The Herald telegraphs from Standing
Rock as follows: "The feeling of uneasiness
grows beautifully less the nearer I get to
the reservation aud the Indians. ' It really
begins to look very much as if tbe citizens
of Mandan were alarming themselves un
necessarily over the alleged appearance of
the Indian Messiah. There is a knowing
smile on the faces of the whites living on
the east bank of the Big Muddy when
they speak of the great excitement of the
settlers liviug near Mandan, and they
wink at each other and remark that tbey
reckon tbe boys will keep the war de
partment from abandoning Fort Lincoln.
After all, to abandon Fort Lincoln would
mean a great pecuniary loss to the citi
zens of Mandan and tbey are in hopes
that this Indian scare, which ia being
worked for all it is worth, will have tbe
effect of Inducing the government to en
large tbe tiost I Date ad of dismantling it.
No Cauao for Alarm.
"There certainly is cause for rome nn-
easines, but not for alarm.aud I feel that
I am perfectly safe in saying that there
will be no outbreak this winter. The In
dian enthusiast here say they do not ex.
pect the Messiah until tbe grass is so high
meaning next spring when they are to
move west toward Hear Buttes to meet
him, and then he will bring them their
millemuin without battle or bloodshed.
It la to be a peaceful coming. The silly
report tnat nas been sent out to tbe ef
fect that Sitting Boll with a big follow
ing has left tbe reservation, aud that two
troops of cavalry are in pursuit of the

A Pathetla Farewell.
"A mou affecting piece of news in re
gard to this Indian trouble is the pathetic
leave-taking of the Jamestjwn militia
company, which bas been ordered by
Governor Miller to proceed to Mandan to
protect the lives and property of the white
settlers in that vicinity. Before embark -

The Indian Fanatioa Threaten a Whole
Pieriie. a D , Nov. 21.-Capt Norville,
a special agent of the government sta
tioned here to adjudicate Indian claims,
yesterday paid a visit to the Two Kettle
tribe of Sioux, living some distance up
Bad river. The report was circulated
that they wen deserting their homes to
go lo Hump and Big Foot's camps and
join the hostile In ghost dp.nees. When
the captain found theie follows they pos
itively denied it and madu afiid.tvit to
that effect. The captain next waited
upon "Crow Eigle" and "Hump Rio,"
the two Ileal men of the band, and' they
told the c.iptaiu that emissaries bad vis
ited tbem from I he Cherry Creek Indiana,
and one evening, while they were h iving
a pleasant little dance, one of Big l oot's
men cams in and addressed them aud told
them about the new Christ, and how He

He Said they knew this was going to
happen aud urged them to come over to

they would not go, and neither had they
been there. They told the captain thev
Wished he would have it said in the Pierre
papers that they were not going to ioin in

stated that within the past few days sev
eral of the hostiles batLappeared among

Harness Bight Along.
London, Nov. 2L Tha most important
development in tbe Parnell cae U the
practical announcement that Gladstone
will ignore tbe recent scandal and con
tinue to stand np with Parnell in politics.
This announcement is not direct from
Gladstone, but it is from one of his
mouthpieces John Morley. Speaking to
the Liberal Federation of Sheffield yester
day he 'said it was their duty to
"Tt, tbe great Irish national ques
tion r- from personal couaid
eration wrrru,,! not belong to it
It was their duty nov,,,- ,UayN to hold
that question aloft to the (Nfaijn view.
This doubtless happened to be anutuit, at
tbia moment, when the country was.
stirred by anxious incidents and painful
disclosures. Only let tbem recognise that
none of the disclosures iu the Slightest
degree derogated tbe justice, the urgency
and the sacred ness of that great cause,
which was as sound as ever, and which
became day by day more argent as it
n eared tbe final issue.
Davltt Says Besign.
On the other hand Mich set Davltt, in
an editorial in The Labor World, his new
paper, declares that Parnell must retire,
because hi-i further leadership, under the
circumstances, will imperil tho Irish
cause. Davitt says Paruell is axked to
make a small sacrifice, and must not con
aider bis own political fnture at all. His
leadership now will .imperil the home
rule cause in England.
Loyal Words from Ireland.
At a maa meeting at Leiua-er the
mayor declared that the only crime which
Ireland would ever condemn Parnell for
was one of which he was incapable,
namely, treason to Ireland. Justin Mc
Carthy agreed with tbe mayor, aud a vote
of confidence in Parnell was adopted en
thusiastically. Similar action was taken
at a meeting at Gal way, at which fifty
priests were present.

The Police View of tho Case.
The French police, however, are satis

tbe murder of Gen. Seliverskoff, though
any clue leading in that direction receives
full attention. It is now thought that
the crime was prompted by revenge for
an act of licentiousness on tbe part of the
general, the murderer being the lover of

City, where he married Mrs. R-hecca Cun

wife's lap. One day be waa arrested six
months after bis marriage and taken to
Buffalo, where be was charged with tak
ing part in a bank robbery. A parlor car
was chartered by Moore and a host of
witoeeses were taken there to prove an
alibi. Urover CTevelanJ, then a Buffalo
lawyer, defended Moore. Owing to tbe
fact that tbe robbery occurred ou Moore's
Wedding day, and the tightness of the
alibi, he was St-quitted. Soon after, it ia
