HALLOU'S MAGAZINE for May has a second very acceptable illustrated article on India, very apropos at this time, as a war between Russia and England is imminent, on account of the continual pushing of the former nation. It will be read with interest. Then comes the thrilling yarn of Lewey and I or. Sailor Boys' W«ui dcrings." by Win. II. Thomes, author of The Belle of Australia," and On Lajid and Sea," two very popular books. In tins part of the story the two young adventurers have a sharp brush with a wandeiir.g band Apache Indians who have raided the southern part of California. The story ia grow ing in interest, and promises well. This is not a rorjfiancc, but a remark able collection ol facts. The rest of HALLOL'S is devoted to short stones, poems, wit stud humor, and illustrat ions, and all for the price of 15 cents pei copy, or *1.50 per year.

HENRY NEILL, Clerk, pro teno. Browns Valley is the key to the Kisseton and Wahpeton Indian reser vation, situated just across the line iQ Dakota, and containing nearly 2.»m)»), 000 acres of as fine farming land as ever brought forth the famous No I hard wheat, and other grains, for which this country is celebrated and unequalled. Something lik«"I4(»0 In dians (men, women and children) oc cupy this reservation. As there are several thousand acres more than the Indians can possibly till, both the Minnesota and Dakota legislatures, at the last session, petitioned Congress to act on the. matter of having a por tion, at least, of this reservation, thrown open to settlement. From conversations held with several of the leading and prominent men of the Sisseton nation, we are assured that a large majority of the Indians are de sirous of disposing of a portion of tlie reservation to the govermen and when the goverment sends a commis sion to negotiate with them, with whom they (the Indians) are acquaint ed, and who would not work'on the bulldoze pljin, we believe themat.er could be arranged satisfactorily to both the Indians and the government. One of the Indians recently said to u*: "We have ten times the axnount of land we have any use for or ever ex pect to need, and if we could dispose of a portion of it we would be in a great deal better shape to cultivate and improve all we could possibly handle. I believe the quicker this is done the better off we will be." It is quite likely that the near future will see a portion of this reserve purchased of the Indians and thrown open to set tlement.—Brown's Valley Uepurter. A full Hue of fancy grades of teas and coffees uxp*cted soon at OehUr k II Beauty II In tat. Every woman who regards beauty understands that she must bestow mi'ch care upon her complexion. To remove tan and sunburn, cold cream, mutton tallow aud lemon juice may be used lor freckles applv the latter, with a tiny camel's hair brush. The country girl, deprived of many things which her city cousin finds indispen sable, discovers that she can rem »ve tan from her face with a wash ide of green cucumbers sliced in milk, o. failing iu this, she nuk»s a decoction of butter milk and tansy. A well known wriuir of feminine beauty, recommends the use of finely ground French charcoal for the complexion. A teaspoon of this, well nnx'd with water or honev, should bo taken three successive nights, followed by .. simple purgative, to remove it from the system. The aperient must not, be omited or the charcoal will remain in the system, a mass of festeiing poison, with all the impurities it ab sorbs. None of these things will bring about the desired result unless the foundation is first laid by proper food, exercise, and bathing: above all things do not neglect the bath Clean liness is one of the cardinal virtues, and a woman fresh from the bath feels a good deal like an angel. Ayer's Cathartic Pills are suite i to every age. Being sugar-coated they are easy to take, and though mild and pleasant in action, are thorm^h and searching in effect.
