Wftt Finger Nails Tef?.
In days when superstition was more
_revalent than it is now, the shape
and appearance of the finger nails
were considered to have reference to
one's destiny. To learn the message
of the -finger nails it was necessary to
rub them over with a compound of
wax and soot, and then to hold them
so that the sunlight fell fully on them.
Then on the horny, transparent sub
stance certain signs and characters
were supposed to appear, from which
the future could be interpreted.
Persons, too. having certain kinds of
nails were credited with the possession
of certain characteristics. Thus a man
with red an<%potted nails was sup
posed to hai hot temper, while pale,
lead colored nails were considered to
denote a melancholy temperament.
Narrow nails were suppose to betray
ambition and a quarrelso nature,
while round shaped nails wLe f*ie dis
tinguishing marks of lovers-of-lknowl
edge and people of liberal sentiment.
Conceitecd. narrow minded and obsti
nate folks w(!re supposed to have small
nails, indolent people fleshy nails and
those of a gentle, retiring nature broad
nails.

Washington, D. C.-"When our boy
was about 16 months old he broke out
with a rash which was thought to be

about three weeks when the doctor

GODS OF OUR RED MEN.
rHE HOME OF ALL INDIAN DEITIES
IS IN THE BLACK HILLS.
The Great Spirit Sits Upon the Highest
M1ountain, Supposed to e Uarney's
Peak-Aicribe Supernatural 'owers to
What They Don't Understand.
HE Indian has many deities.
To him everything is
"Wakan." The mysterious
and unknown is ruled by the
gods or deities of greater or lesser
"Wakan." Anything that is super
natural, mysterious or superhuman is
"Wakan."
The Black Hills of South Dakota,
from an Indian point of view, is the
home of tho gods, from whom all
power originates. The wind and the
lightning are sent forth from the dark
recesses of the mountains and the
very fcundations of the hills are made
to tremble, when the Great Spirit
gives vent to his anger. 17he old In
dian tradition says that the Great
Spirit sits upon the highest mountain
in the Black Hills, supposed to be
Harney's reak, and from this exalt
ed position, he directs the move
ments of the lesser gods and his own
people. In his pleasant moods, he
causes the sun to shine, the grass to
grow and the Indian tribes to be at
peace with one another. In his an
gry moments, he lets loose the winds
aud lightning and the world is made
dark and the children of the Great
Spirit are punished by famine and
death.
Many years ago the Great Spirit
kept a white man chained be
neath the big mountain. The man
tresspassed upon the chosen hunt
nig ground of the children of the
Preat Spirit and he was forthwith
captured and made example of before
11 other -respassers of the palefaces.
Tfhe white man was a giant, whose
Aootprints in the sands were twenty
eet long and he was so powerfal in
is right arm that he could break the
puffalo' ~back and could twist from
its roots the lofty pine; yet the Great
Spirit ruled him.
PP.DIITIY DAINMAKER.
The Great Spirit had a good many
lesser deities, wo were given power
pver animals and things. Onkteri
vas the god of wat(r. This deity in
putward appearance resembled an or,
being much larger. A great part of
the religion of the Indians came from
the wakan influence of this god.
There are both male and female, the
former having control of the water and
the earth beneath the water, and the
latter having an influence over the
land by the side of the water. When
the god of water wants rain to fall he
lifts~his tail and horns to the clouds
and immediately the rain falls. Onke
tri assumes an important part in the
juggling and superstitous beliefs of
the Indians. The medicine men ob
tain their supernatural power from
this source. The god and goddess
arc rmortals and can propogate their~
kind. They have power to impart
am their bodies a mighty wakan in
ence.
'a-o-ter-dah is the god of the for
hi, ..
of'the time in.
tres' on the n:ountai
panions are the birds of the
act as guards and sentinels: 3Vhe
wants anything he flies to his perch
in the tree-top, which is as smooth as
glass. He calls together his friends
and ser.ds them hither and thither.
HeII is in constant war with the god of
thunder, Wah-keen-yon. When Wah
keen-you passes over the mountain
top, casting here and there his bolts
of lightning, Cha-o-ter-dah, the godl of
1he forest, enters the water at the footf
of the tr-ee and the lightning cannot
touch him.
TLo the Indian, Wah-keen-yon is
at mighty bird, and the noise that is
made, which shakes the foundations
of the mountains, is caused by the
big bird flying through the air with
is young ones. The old bird will
not injure the Indians, but the yonng
birds are foolish and do all the harmin
they can. The name Wah-keen-yon
siguifies a flyver. There arc four
varieties of the gods among the Wah
keen-yon. The image of the first one
is that of a great bird, black in color,
w ith a very long beak and four joints
in each pinion. The second variety
is yellow in color, beakiess, and also
bats four joints in its pinions. The
I ourth god has remarkably long wings,
e-ch of them containing eight joints.
[t is scarlet in color. The fourth god
is blue in color, and has no face, eyes
r cars. Immediately above where
the face should appear is a semicircu
ar liue, resembling an inverted half
moon. The Wah-keen-you gods live
n the top of a lefty mountain at the
western end of the earth's surface.
uards stand at the open doors, which
ook out to the four noints of the com
pass. A butterfly stands at the east
door, a bear at the west door, at the
nrth door a reindeer, and a beaver at
the south. The Wah-keen-yon are
estructive and are at war with most
f the other gods. The Indians be
icve that the fossil remains of the
mastodons that are found so fre-'
luently in the bad lands are the bones
f the fallen god of water, and the
burial places are held as most sacred.
When the white man discovered these
remains and, knowing their origin,
:ommenced excavating them for rare
relics, the Indians resented this in
rasion of the burial ground of their
ods.
GOD OF GRASS AND wEEDS.
Whitte-ko-kak-gah is the god of the
rass and weeds. The word, trans
ated, means "to make crazy." The
od is a weed himself and he has the
power of giving whomsoever he will
its which make them crazy. The god
as the figure of a man. In .his right
and, he carries a rattle of deer hoofs
with sixty-four deer claws. In his:
left hand he carries a bow and arrow.
From his cap streams of lightning
fow, so bright that they dazzle the
wild animals. In his mouth he has a
whistle. which is used in the dance to
invoke the assistance of the Great
Spirit when the Indians have had bad
lck in hunting.
We-huin-de-dan is the goddess oi
war. She is always invoked when the
Idians go to battle. She is repre
sented with hoofs on her arms and as
many 'of these as she throws at the
eet' of each warrior indicates the
iumber'of scalps that will be returned'
party is to have poor luck, the g("
dess will throw to the ground as maly
broken arrows as therewill be warrio:1
wounded and killed.
One of the greatest and most rever
enced gods is Tah-koo-shkan-shkan,
who is invisible, but all prevading.
He is in the spear and the tomahawk,
in boulders and in the four winds. He
delights to see thn warriors fall in bat
tie. He is the most dreaded god of
ihe Indians. He directs the move
ments of the for, raven, buzzard, wolf
al other animals of similar nature.
HAVE MANY (1oDS.
The Indians have as many gods and
goddesses as there are imaginative
minds in the tribe. Anything that is
out of the ordinary or that anpeals to
the imagination is a god.
Contrary to the opiniou so gener
ally hcld, the Black Hills were never
the home of the Indians. Influenced
by the ever-present superstition, th.
Iudian tribuns .eld in reverence tYe
pine-covered mountains and Aep
canyons, believing them to 1-- the
home of deities. The early pioneers
in the Blaok Hills found evidence that
the Indians fre-uently came to the
Loot-hills for tepee poles and firewood,
but beyond an imaginary IiHe the
tribes rarely ventured. It is not to be
wondered at, perhaps, that the Indians
fought so bravely to retain possee.,ion
of the Black Iills. To- them the
country was as sacred as the white
man's heavel. The Indian battles in
the '70s around and in the Black Hills
were battles ot a nation against a for
eign people, who sought to dethrone
and destroy a religion. Many of the
Indians of to-day. surrounded as they
are by the civilization of the whites,
Ftill hold in reverence the lofty peaks
and the deep canyons of the "Ia-Ha
Sap-Pa."
AS STRANCE AS "FAKETION."
An Old Fake story at Last Paralleled by
an Actual Occurrence.
The story of how a pickpocket stole
a pocketbook, and lost $200 at the
same time, to a young wrman from
the country, is being related by peo
ple living in the vicinity of Goodell
and Oak streets as one of the oddest
of happenings.
Recently a young woman friend of
Mrs. GeTrge J. Lutz, of 463 Oak
street, came from Springville to visit
her. One day she accompanied Mrs.
Lutz downtown on a Main street car
and, as it iappened, the car was crow d
ed. They got seats, and a few mo
ments later, at Chippewa street, a
well-dressed man, disp!aying cousider
able jewelry, including a fine diamond
ring, found a seat beside them. He
had been eyeing the two women from
the rear platform, and Mrs. Lutz had
noticed that after he got a seat he re
ineind only until after the car had
reached the next corner. She felt
that the man was a thief, and warned
the young woman from the country
that she should be on her guard for
piipockets in crowded cars. Her
suspicion was hardly strong enough
to warrant asking her friend if she
had been robbed, but the question
was unnecessary for the young wem

Mrs. Lutz recalled that the stran

found in the pocket to show thit it

ared not mention it, for that wonla

hances were that he had not noticed

Mrs. Lutz and her friend went at
omce to T. C. Tanke's jewelry store at

alue of the diamond. There was a
hance that it was paste, although both
omen knew enough of the value of dia

GOOD ROAD OF
Will Not Increase Taxation,
N her travels and missionary work
. to promote the sentiment for good
-roads in Illinois, Miss Harber
Jaims to have been very success4
ful i enlisting the co-operation of
commcial bodies in different towns.
Amon. farmers, however, she had
some ufficulty in explaining that the
associafon she represented was
workng not for hard roads but for
good':oads. The average farmer, she
found'easily became frightened at the
propolor hard roads, for that makes
them tink of macadam, which would
mean iLr-eased taxation. In a recent
address 'iss Harber said: "On- solo
aim at pent is to mked good soft
roads, whi in years to come wiil
furnish fodl\ations for good hard
ifoads. As an 41 gation regar
our work as experin L I n1 educa
tional. We aim to have at each of our
conventions manufacturers and ma
chines for constructing sample pieces
of road, that farmers may see ia a
practical demonstration how a ron,l
should be built to be of value to the
community. The object lessons show
how a road should be built so that
water will draiU ofi; how calvert
should be constructed and arranged
in order properly to fulfill their mis
sion, and-how really inexpensive it is
to make good roads when the work is
done intellige-tly and systematically.
"We do not intend to increase taxa
tion one penny, for we know that tue
$4,000,000 annually expended by Illi
nois is sufficient to build good roads
throughout the State. But we do ask
that the farmers will let the State do
the work, according to an approved
system, and not work out their poll
i2X by pretending to build good roads.
Not that they do not mean to do their
best s,> far as they know or have the
ability, but they have not the facili
ties and cannot do the work as it should
be done. We know that under the
proper system a good rural road can
be made for le:s money than it now
costs. We want, if possible, to see
the poll tax reduced to $1, but want
the farmers to pay that dollar into the
State treasury, instead of working it
out, as is now the case, and we expect
to convince him that it will be to his
advantage to do it."
The State and Interstate Good Roads
Association, represented by Miss Har
ber, embraces twenty-two or more
States, and is the outgrowth of a State
convention held in Missouri in 1897,
at which 700 delegates were present.
Miss Harber and six men were ap
pointed a committee to travel over the
country and organize county associa
tion3. At the end of one year, when
the first interstate convention, at
tended by 2500 delegates, was held in
St. Louis, seventy-two counties had
been organized, and as Miss Harber
had organized sixty-six o.f the total
she was unanimously chosen general
secretary and organizer.

The Governor, in reply, said he was

le thought it unnecessary to assure
thema of his hearty sympathy with
their cause. This State must have
good roads and we must improve our
methods of communication, especially
in the rural districts. The Governor
said that he thought thai., as a rule,
the members of the Legislature would
respect the wishes of those whom they
represented when the people got those
wishes properly formulate d. He, there
fore, urged them to organize and make
the strength and sincerity of their
pur.poses apparent. When this is

of getting appropriations would end.
The Governor said he thought the
delegates were getting the movement
in good shiape by such meetings as the
one they were now holding here, and
he hoped the convention would bear
fruit in practical results.
The Good Roads Convention adopt
ed a resolution that it was the sense
of the convention that there should be
no amendment of the Higbie-Arm

decided to ask the Legislature for an
appropriation of $1,000,000, which is
considered the amount necessary to be
paid by the State for a proper inaug

Otto Dorner, Chairman of the L. A.
W. Highway Improvement Commit
tee,who is considered one of the best
informed good roads- meni in this
country, says: ."We are not obliged to
go to Europe for illustrations of good
roads, for we have, fortunately, a few
localities in our own country whiich
furnish s ch examples. Mecklenburg~
County, . C., not long ago began
the construction of a system of mac
aam roads. It was customary there
to load up two bales of cotton on a
wagon to be hauled by a mule team.
The mules could draw this load all
right. After a raio, when the roads
were soft, the load was too much for
even a pair of tough mules. . When
the country had built a few roads it
was four.d that the same mules were
able to haul as much as twelve bales,
or six tons, in place of their former
ied, which amounted a only a single
ton. And more-the improved roads
rado~ it possible to haui this load in
ed and dry weather alike, for, being
proporiy built of stone, they were it
for use immediately after a heavy
