Indian Medieln'e Danee.
The Indian dances celebrated in the
Indian Territory, in June, were wit.
nessed by fully 0,000 Indians. Th
numler of persons who take part is un
limited. When the performance begins,
the company having assembled, the per
formers at a given signal rush into the teni
from various points of the compass witl
shouts and yells, and as they reach the in,
teror they fire their guns at the eflig3
suspended from t1e -polo-intending thw
to destroy the evil spirit-and immediately
they set up their dance. This consista ii
tIe main of a light springing up and dowi
to the monotonous niusio furnished by i
peculiar song unva ied in words and inusic,
which accompanied the pounding. It goe
on till the bodies of the musicians weary,
and at a signal all stop Pad take a rest.
That done, the dance proceeds again. The
programme is changed a little In some of
its details, so as to give a variety. Each
(lancer has a sort of 'trainer,' or attendant,
who sees to preparing him for the exercise.
During the rest of the dance the perform
ers will arise, lay Dff their shawls or blan
kets, take off their other garments, and
barring breech-clout, reduce thenielves to
a state of complete nudity. This is done
in the presence of thousands of men, wo
inen and children, ithd nothing is thought
of it. The attennant then paints the
dancer, using a weed for a brush. The
entire body Is covered with rings, forks
and other curious devices. SomIe ines
the legs from the top of the hips and the
groins are painted to the foot with white
or light-colored pigment, and thi rings
and stripes are run about them at int rvals,
produclug a very striking effect. The
back, arms and chest are also covered wit I
similar representatiins. As the bor'y is
partly dry a shawl or blanket is thrown
over the shoulders, and the legs are left
bare. MCar white the audience keeps up
its chatting, laughing, eating an( fanning
it.elf to keel) cool, and pays but little at.
tention to the spectacle of preparation.
The chief medicine man, or the man who
has the lead in making dhe medicine, goes
around the lige about nmdway of the
radius, and deposits at intervals pieCIes of
sageLrush; another follows and deposits in
the sane spot pieces of bicad and nuts.
What this was for 1 did not learn. The
dancers also place wreaths of sige brush
or of leaves on their heads, and a wreath
around tile waist and across the shoulders.
Those who do this last wear no blanket or
shawl, but are nude except. as to the wreath
and irecch-clout. A person who has never
seen the dance can scitcely realize whitat a
hideous oppearance the leaves and wreaths
and painI give to tle naiiked SavaLe. lie
looks like a typical cannibal who has just
roasted a fresh missionary and is about to
devour him. Everything being in readi
ness, the dancers put into their wiouths i
small hark whistle, about live inches long,
having a shrill sound, and ornamented
with a tuft of horse-hair, which adds to
tle groteitqueness; of their' make-up. The
signal is given and the dancing begiii
again. accompanied by the drum', singing
and whitthing. During the whole of the
exercises the participants give not tke
slightest indication of mirthfulness, but
are as soleimn in visage ats any one could
p0os1bly he. - T'o them it is evidently seri
ous business, and the chief priests in this
cerenoty have no trouble in looking one
another in the face wilhout la.ighing. To
thetn it is earnest. Soie of the dancers
show signs of physical exhaustion from
went of food, and when they are resting
they lean on their hands at if they were in
prayer or suffering from a it adaclie. One
strange part of the medicine dance is the
toiture. An In(dhti will cut. two parallel
peripendicular slits in the skin, on the
breast and just above the nipple, and1( undier
the skin from one slit to the other he will
run a stout stick. To each end of this
stick he ties a long string. Tlhe other side
of the breast is fixed in the samu way, and
the strings have their free ends panssedt
around the centre pole and tied. The in..
dian wvill then lean back and thus pull on
the sticks until he tears the ekini out and
releases himself. lThe sight is a revoltiing
on'. The blood streams diown h~is breast
amnd legs from the cuts. Th'le skin is usually
tough and refuses to yield, and frequently
the man has to brace lis feet against the
pole and push with all lis igh~t.-Th
thongs still hold and tihe skini is often pulled
away from the breast h~ome, and stands out
at an angle of about fifteen dhegrees clear
aeross the breast andt from the~ cuts downi
to the lower ribs. It sometimnes happens
that the torturer faints before the skinl
pulls out ; it more frequently happens thbat
he faints as it pulls out, and, weak fronm
wvant of food and loss of blood, lie requires
caroful attention until lie recove*rs. Others
(come through bravely and go on with the
dance. Onec fellow, the other day, unable
to) enidure the suffering while both thongs
were pulling on him at once, triedi to break
one out at a time, and~ when lie succeeded
the crowd dressed him in squaw's clothts

I have said, is not to test whether the
torturers are brave wvarriors, but is intendced
to placate the Almighty and win- is aidi

CARE OF CATTLE IN WARM WIEATHEI.
As the days grow warmer the. ticks will
it crease upon 'the sheep, and become
more troublesome. A strong decoction of
tobacco in water used as a dip, or poured
along the back, will destroy them.
As the lambs increase In size the dams
suffer, and the 1 nabs must either be fed
some meal daily, or the ewes must be
given an abundance of rich food. Lambs
can begin to eat at four or five weeks, and
thus relieve the owes. Pigs need a clean
place, and breeding sows should be by
themselves, with an abundance of cut
straw or chaff for litter. Horses that have
had good care will come out in the spring
in good trim for the season's work. As
the coat begins to loosen the skin irritated.
An ounce of equal parts each of sulphur
anq cream ot tartar, given with the food
for a few days, will correct this.' Good
grooming with a soft brush should not be
neglected. Ground feed, mixed with cut
hay, is an excellent food in the spring for
working horses. Three quarts of equal parts
of corn and rye (or oats) nixed with a
pallfull of moist cut bay is enough for a
meal. An occasional feed of cut beets or
potatoes is useful. With many exper
ienced horsemen an occasional feed of half
a peck of potatoes is regarded as a remedy
for worms in horaes. However this may
be, thev improve the general condition of
the animal in a miost posikvo manner. The
main points is to ke.p the horses in good
health and strength, for upon then. de
volves a great part of the spring work. As
loaling time approaches, brood mares
should be turned loose in a box stall and
receive the most gentle treattment, as the
temilper and disposition of the colt is
thought to depend imuch upon this.

ly helps the performance of th~e initial act,
and the cultivation of a habit' of going to
sleep In a peculiar way, at a peculiar time,
will do more to prooure regular and healthy
sleep than any other artifice. The forma
tion of the habit l, in fact, the creation or
development of a special center, or enin
hination, in the nervous system, which will
henceforth produce sleep ak a natural rhy
thilcal process. If this was more'generally
accognized, persons who suffer from sleep
lessness of the sort which consists in simply
being 'unable to go to sleep,' would set
themselves resolutely to form such a habit.
It is necessary that the training should be
explicit and include attention to details.
It is not very important whaO a person does
with the Intention of going to sleep, but he
should do precisely the sanie thing, in the
same way, at the same time, and under as
nearly as possibly the same conditions,
night after night for a considerable period,
say three or four weeks at least.

The obscure poison which produces hy
diophobia has been known to lie latent in
the human system for years before develop
ing its fatal results. At. Pasteur declares
the supposition to be well supported that
the virus does develop in certain organs,
and not, as In other similar maladies, In the
blood; and that when -af ter a period vari
able according to circumstances-the or
ganized poison passes into the blood severe
symptoms come on rapidly, and the victim
soon dies. An explanation substantially the
same as this had long been advanced as a
mere theory, but now M. Pasteur advances
it as an ascertained physiological fact.

the hemlock, which destroys millions of
gnats on its resluous exudations, or the
thistle and burdjck, which impale so many
butteillies, moths. and bumble bees on
their spines. In the buninmer of 1878 he

The Fish Commissioners of Maine have
adopted the plan of markig salmon to cb
tain data with regard to the development
and migrations of these fish. Several hnn
drEd salmon lately set free in the Penobscot
River have been labled with light metal

The commissioners ask that whoever catches
a labeled salmon in any waters of the State
will forward to them Ihe fish, for which
they will pay an extra price, or else for

abont the fish that wore it.
In a paper on dew and fogs, Heir Dines
says that morning tog along~ the river course
arises when the water is warmer than the
air over it. the evap~oration going on more
quickly than the vapor can be carried
away, and is therefore, oondensed and
spread as fog. 'rhe evening fog on moist
low-lying meadow land he attribtates to a
lowering of the temperature of the grass
surface by radiation, and a consequent con
denusation of the aqueous vapor in the
lowest layers of the atmosphere.
