INTERIOR DEPARTMENT Secretary Noble's Annual Report Submitted to Congress, The annual report of tho Secretary of the Interior was subaitted to congress on Mon day. It makes a printed volume of 127 pages. It shows that there aro 580,210,801 acres of vacant lands in tho United States, and 809, 529,000 in Alaska, making a total of 955.746,401. In the states and territories Montana leads with 04,607,627 acres, and Michigan .is tweuty-socoud with 832.707 acres. During tho past year 19,000,000 acres of agricultural lands were conveyed to actual, settlors, aud 539,779 to states for educational purposes, ote, ' , Considerable space ts devoted to tho subject of Irrigation, which alono can uiako valuable immouse tracts of arid lands In Idaho, Wyoming Montana, Utah, No vada, Colorado, Arizona, Now Mexico and tho Dakotas. Iu view of tho state of affairs at thc.Pine Ridgo Agency aud other frontier posts, that portion of the secretary's, report touching upon Indian affairs possesses peculiar in terest: ;....,..) In reviewing -the -past year's work of the department in regard to the Indians, it is seen that thoro has been, steady progress made in engaging them in peaceful, ways and industrial pursuits. A stronger desire is manifested- among many for the educa tion of; their children, for the individual ownership of Und, and generally for tho comforts of civilization. But it ' needs to bo said that, a much larger area of land than is necessary is held for Indian occupancy. Thero aro not moro than 250, 000 Indians within the borders of tho United States (excluding Alaska). Tho groater part of these reside upon or hnvi some interest in tho existing reservations, tho others living upon a portion of the public domain. Tho aggrogato area of tho Indian reservations was, at the last report, about 116,000,000 acros, or 181,250 square miles, which is, as calculated by tho Indian commissioner, "greater than that of the New England and middle states combined, groiiter 'than the aggregate area of tho btatcs of Ohio, Indiana, Illiuois und Keu tucky, and nearly . equal to tho combined area of tho two Dakotas and Montana; or, to carry the comparison further, it is larger by half than tho 'United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland, larger than Swodon or Norway, and nearly as largo as oithcr Franco Or 'Spain." That pox'tloh of tho report that is de voted to patents gives tho following statistics: The total number of applicu tions received, Including reissues, trade marks,, designs, etc,, was 46,140; tho num ber of patents granted was '25,857; trade marks and labels registered, ' 1,030; patents expired, 11,885; the total receipts wero, 81,347,203.21; tho total expenditures were, 81,031,173.50, leaving a surplus of 8200, 029.05 to bo turned into the treasury of tho United States to tho credit of tho patent fund, und making a total balanco in the troasury on account of tho putent fund of 83, 790, 556. 28. The work to bo dono by the ponsion bureau has reached wonderful proportions, audits expenditures have sont into the channels of . trade and commerce in our country more than one hundred millions of dollars the past year. Tho use of this vast sum has served moro than one valu able puriose. It has been not alono a relief to hundreds of thousands of tho families of the soldiers who in different wars have served their country, chiefly thoso who defended tho union against accession; but it has also transferred at most opportune moments tho accumulated treasures of tho government to the hands of the peoplo, 'blessing him that gives and him that tuken." The pensions grantod by previous legis lation will bo largely augmoutod by those now being allowed under tho act entitled "An act granting pensions to soldlors and sailors who aro incapacitated for tho er formaneo of manual labor, aud providing for pensions to widows, minor children and dependent parents," approved Juno 27, 1S90. It may bo well to mention hero that tho reason why our pension roil is greater than that of other countries is not alone booauso the war was colossal, having enrolled nearly two and a quarter millions of men on one side, but because tho country they saved being a republic each Individual of that vast army hud a recognized claim to to tho aid of the nation. In other lands officers got much and men little; hero tho largo bulk of pensions goes to tho rank and file, and the immense numbers of these and thoir dependents swell tho pension list to proportions commensurate with the bum of tho army and tho democracy of our principles. At tho close of tho fiscal year 1890 thero were 537,944 pensioners borne upon tho rolls, as follows: Army invalid pensioners. ... 302.F03 Army widows, minor children and dependent relatives. 104,450 Navy Invalid pensioners 5,274 Navy widows, minor children and dependent relatives 2,460 Survivors of the war of 1812 413 Widows of soldiers of tho war of 1812 8,010 Survivors of tho Mexican war 17,158 Widows of soldiers of Mexican war.. 0,704 Total 5.17,044 Thero wero 06,637 original claims al lowed during the year, being 14,716 mort original claims thau were allowed during tho fiscal year 18S9, ond 0,3X5 moro than wero allowed during the fiscal year J 8S8. The Commissioner of Pensions estimates there wero on July 1 last l,246,0Si surviv ors of the civil war, and that about lO'l.OOO of these uro now 02 years of ago and up wards. The est imato for army and navy pensions for 1S9J is 8133.000,000. The number of persons employed In tho bureau of pensions is 5,'.i06.

They are tenriag down old houses all over the city to make room for tho more modern' houses. Whilo these houses are being demolished there la usually ii class of people who crowd around, eager to pick up all stray piece of wood which como In their direction. Colored peoplo generally predominate in this class, aud many a family is thug supplied with fuel. While tearing down a house in the northwest section of tho city recently the workmen were very much bothcreel by thesa "wood hustlers," aa they term them. . Tho "wood hustlers'1 in tho case were composed, with but ono .except-j iou, of small negroes. This exception was au old negro who had one leg pliorter thau tlie other, aud was nearly bent double, but whether with ago or .not no one knew. '' lie looked as if ho had worked hard ii1 1 his life, but ap- . pearanees aro deceitful. . The workmen became ho incensed at the "wood bustlers" that they- drovo them all away excepting tho old man. After a while the old man became nitre bold, aud endangered himself ju try ing to get pieces of wood. One of tho workmen spoke to him about it telling him he would be hurt if he persisted iu getting iu the way: The old man mumbled out something, but paid no atteution to the waruing. Tiually bo got close to the wall nnd stooped to pick up a piece of a beam. ' Just as he was stooping a brick fell in front of him, and he narrowly escaped being hit. Seeing this, " 'a "workman jelled, "Look out, olo man, or you'll be killed." . "I doan't kare," replied the old man, and ho continued to confiscate all the wood" that luune within Ids reach. Again he barely escaped beiug hit with uuotiier brick, aud again the workmau shouted: . "I dono tole yer onst to git away from dere. The fust thing you know you won't know nothing." "Xdoan't Lure," reiterated the old man. looking around for more wood, aud, seeing some in tho interior of the building, he went for it. lie had hard ly passed the door when a heavy beam fell iu the place he had just rncnted, enveloping him iu a cloud of dust. Several workmen, thinking that the heavy beam had pinioned tho old man to the ground, jumped dowu to render all the assistance possible. Imagine their surprise when, on reachiug tho place, they found the old man gather ing the wood as unconcernedly as though nothing had happened. iThe workmen were speechless for a . while, und tiieu one said: - ' "Look a' har, olo man, you'll 'have to get out o' this. Wo don't care'bout losin' time er. carry in' yer korpu3 through the street."

To Kscnpe From Tornadoes. When trying, to escape from . a tor nado never ruu'to the northeast, ea9t, or southeast. Never take rofuge iu a forest or n grove of trees, or near any object that may bo overturned by the wind. A frame building is safer thau ono built of brick or stone. The form er is moro elastic and holds together longer; the latter goes down iu the first crudi, and tho debris is whirled into a heap in ucntcr of the foundation. In a frame structure tho cellar is the safest place, but in a briok or slono building it is the most perilous. In the former case the debris is carried away from tho foundation, while in the latter instance the cellar is tilled with iU The tornado cavo offers absolute security to life and limb, and no means of protection can replace it for that purpose. As regards protection to property, no building can be made sufliciently large, strong, high, or low to resist the force of tho tornado's vor tex. There is no changing the path of the tornado by tho employment of ex plosives or by any artificial barrier. To contcmplato the clisiersion of tho cloud by the use of any electrical con trivance is also idle. All buildings should bo constructed as would be done without the knowledge of the tornado, and then prokected by legiti mate insurance. Protection must bo accomplished by organized capital, the safety of one being assured by the legitimate and successful eo-operatkm of many. The writer strongly advocated this method of protection during his tor nado investigations In tho West in 1879. and now several million dollars' worth of property are thus iusurcd every year. Forum.

' There Is more Catarrh In this section of the eonntry than all otlipr dl-jeaacs put together, and until the last few years was supposed to be incurable. For a great many years doctors pro nounced it a lomldiwase, aud prefer! bed h-cal remedied, and by constantly falling to cure witlj kcal treatment, pronounced it Incurable. Sci ence has proven catarrh to be a to;iBtitut!onal disease, aud therrfor requires constitutional trcntm uit. Hall's Catarrh Cure, manufactured by F. J. Cheney V Co., Toledo, Ohio, is the only constitutional "cure ou the market. It is taken Internally in doses from 10 drops to a tcaspoon f uL It acts directly npon the blood and mucous surf aces f the pystern. They offer one hundred dollars for any case it falls to cure.

I'ruia Wtchmnn, UoHton, Mum., Dee. VI, 1889. Every one kAows about l'earllne, almost every ono uses Pearrhie. but wo wonder If all the housekeepers who use it know half that cun l e done with It. We wonder if they all !:now what nimo of the .bright onos have discovered, that thoso mountains of dish washing tho greasy pan and kettle may bo reduced to molehills of the smallest si.e by tho Judicious use of Poarllne. Fill tho roasting pan, as soon as the gravy Ispourai from It, with cold water, shako in a little l'earllne and sot on the stove. Ily tho time the rest of tho dishes aro washed, all the grease li dissolved and the pan can bo washed as easily us a plate. Treat tho kettle In which anything grcusy has boon boiled In tho same way, und beside clean utensils you will have a clean sink, tho tisct of tho l'earllno rendering It sufo to pour such dishwater Into It. Sinks regularly treated to a bath of l'earllno and scalding water will seldom need tho services of a plu tabor. Talking of patent medicines J you know the old prejudice. And the doctors some of j them are between you and us. They would like you to think that what's cured thousands won't cure you. You'd be lieve in patent medicines if they didn't profess to cure every tiling and so, between the experiments of doctors, and the experiments of patent medicines .that are sold only because there's money in the w stuff, w you lose faith in every tiling. And, you can't always tell the prescription that cures by what you read in the papers. So, perhaps there's no better way to sell a remedy, than to tell the truth about it, and take the risk of its doing just what it professes to do. That's what the World's Dispensary Medical Associa tion, of Buffalo, N. Y., does with Dr. Pierce's Golden Medical Discovery, Favorite Prescription, Pleasant Pellets, and Dr. Sages Catarrh Remedy. If they don't do what their makers say they'll do you get your money back. DRPSY t ii it a t it it ruici:. rltlvt9 ?urd UhelblKnir4l lint ruro1 thounnnu nfc.
