ETHE B B O HI IBEle SOL. GENZBERGER & CO, 5 NORTH MAIN SBTREET. STONES OF MAGIC POWER, Have Held an Important Place in the World's Belief Since Time Began. Something of the Popular Talis mans in Use by the Chero kee Indians. The Greatest of All Is the Ulasutti, or Transparent Stone-Implicit Be lief in It. I Written for THa HELENA IŽNDEPENDENT TONES ENDOWED WITIH MAGIC powers have held an important place in the world's belief from the days of the oracular stone in the breastplate of the ancient Jewish high priest down to the Lee penny and the murrain stone of modern times. The Cherokee medicine men make use of several stone talismans, commonly crystals found among their native moun tains. One hich I saw among these Indians was a translucent purple stone about an inch long, with a sharp point. With this the conjurer claimed to be able to find lost or stolen articles, or to tell the whereabouts of game in the mountains. To test the matter I threw a coin into the grass at random, while he was no. looking, and told kim the money was his if he could find it. Procuring a string about a yard long, he tied one end of it around the middle ot the stone. Then holding the stone suspended so as to swing freely, he set it whirling in a circle with a stroke of his linger, at the same time reciting in an undertone some secret formula. The stone at first revolved rapidly, then more and more slowly, and finally stopped with the point toward the north. He walked a few steps in that direction, gave the stone another twirl and again re peated the formula. He explained that this must be done seven times, and that on the seventh trial the stone would point to the exact spot where the money was lying. Having gone through the whole perform ance he finally halted at a plnoo altogether wrong. After hunting in the grass for some time he was obliged to give it up. He declared that his failure was due to the fact that he was not fasting as he should have been to use the stone. The other Indians said the stone was all right, but that the man was a liar-which wes perfectly true-and that, although a pretty good doctor, he knew nothing of magic. They asserted that in the hands of certain conjurors whom they named the ,harm never failed. To obtain a knowlo.jno of future events they use another talisman. This they put into a bowl of water, where, according to their conourrent testimony, it moves about upon the surface, following the direction of a knife in the hands of the conjuror, who all the while repeats his secret for mula. Whipple deseribes this ceremony as he , witnessed it among the western Cherokeoes forty years ago. In this instance the oracle ( eas consulted to learn whether or not there wi a a hostile war party in the vicinity. Putting the talisman into the` water, the conjurer began his invocation. When he spoke of war and danger the, talisman te treated from the point of the knife, but when be spoke of peace and security it ap proeahed and clung to the ;rlade. This omen he interpreted to mean that there was no cause for alarm. Whipole was unable to learn the nature of the talisman, but I have ascertained that it was a small round piece of very dry bread. This charm is still in use among them for a similar purpose. But the greatest of all Cherokee talis mans is the ulasutti (litorally "transpar ent") stone. There is no end to the stories concerning this stone, which the Indians invariably speak of in a half-frightened manner, as children speak of ghosts. They assert that it is a magic scale from the head of a great horned serpent, with a body as large as a tree-trunk, and two blazing coals of fire for eyes, which lived ages ago and worked ter rible destruction among the people untij it was at last killed by a famous magician. In the encounter a single drop of the ser pent's poisonous saliva fell upon the head of the slayer, whose hair was thenceforth transformed into a mass of writhing snakes. I did not see this stone myself. The In dians describe it as a triangular crystal, flat on the bottom and tapering up to a point, and perfectly transparent, with the exception of a single red streak running through the center from top to bottom. It is evidently a beautiful specimen of rutilo quartz, so exceedingly rare that the conjurer who can obtain one outranks all his rivals. The stone must be fed, the Indians say, with the blood of small game every seven days-beino rubbed all over with the blood of the apimal as soon as killed. Twice a year it demands the blood of a deer or some other large animal. It is wrapped in a whole deerskin and kept ii some secret cave in the mountains. Were the tribute of blood to be withheld or neglected the ula sutti would issue from its hiding place at night as a great blazing ball of fire, and fly through the air to satisfy its appetite by drinking the life blood of the conjurer. The original owner himself was afraid of it, and was continually changing its hiding place so that the stone might not be able to find its way out. When he died it was buried with him, as otherwise it would issue from its cave by night, like a fiery meteor, to search for his tomb night after nigat for seven years. But, if finally unable so find its lost master, it would go back to sleep forever where he had placed it. As ifr back as 1762 Timberlake heard of this stone, with the wonderful story of its origin-a story which I have obtained from the Cherokees in its entirety. He stated that it was kept hidden in some place known only to the two women, who steadily re fused to betray the secret. Adair, the celebrated trader, also speaks of it a few years later. The conjurer re fused to let him see it for fear of profana tion. He says: "The above Cherokee prophet had a car buncle near as big as an egg, which they said he found where a great rattlesnake lay dead, and that it sparkled with such surprising luster as to illuminate his dark winter house like strong flashes of con tinued lightning, to the great terror of the weak, who darst not upon any account ap proach the dreadful fire-darting place for fear of sudden death. When he died it was buried along with him, according to custom, in the town house." Whenl consulting it as to any unknown or future happening the conjuror gazes into the ulasutti, and there sees mirrored all that he wishes to know, and by the action of the specter, or its position near the top or bottom of the talisman, he learns not only the event itself, but also its proximity in time or place. Mlany of the Cherokees who enlisted in the confederate service during the late war consulted the ulasautti before setting out, and those with whom I have talked declare that their experience verified the predio tion. So far as known there is but one of those stones now in possession of the eastern Cheroltkees, and that the owner refused all inducements to show me. He said that he kept It hidden in a cave, wrapped in its deerskin covenlug, and that if he should expose it to the profane gaze of a white man he could kill no more gainme, even if he were permitted to live after such a esrit. lee. It was very evident that he believed neat he said, for no offer of nmine could change his determination. Copyright. JAS MooNlY. lsaby carrliagos at The Be Illeve at lyre than eastorn ierlsur.

That curiosity, fully indulged, is liable to prove more expensive than a villa at Newport is a lesson that has just been thor oughly learned by a certain learned med ical gentleman who combats the physical ills of the dives of this town, says the Com mercial Advertiser. In the matter of spiritual manifestations he has always been a stiff-necked and unre generate doubter. As a child he ecoffed at ghost stories, and when he grew up the specter world became a mark for his merry quips and sarcastic jests. Despite this he numbers among his friends many of those who believe in the existence of shades, and they never neglect an opportunity to hurl arguments at his head which tend to bring him over to the ranks of the elect. Finally, about two weeks ago, the doctor responded to the extent of promising to do a little investienting on his own account. He had never gone to a materializing seance and was anxious to see what one was like, so he put a quiet little personal in a daily paper, stating that an unbeliever would like to engage a reputable medium for test manifestations. At 8 o'clock Sunday night a little party of eight personal friends sat with clasped hands in the doctor's parlor and stared anxiously in the direction of the black cloth cabinet which was faintly outlined in the gloom. A pale young man, accomraa nied by an obese female, had answered the doubters and guaranteed to supply a very fine line of three-ely spooks for a hundred dollar bill. For over three-quarters of an hour visitors from the just bryond kept dropping into the doctor's parlor, sailing around his rather nervous guests and de parting. Then there was a long and dreary wait, which was ended by the upturning of the gas. The pale young man and the obese female had vanished as completely as the specters they had been supplying. Their cabinet remained, and with it a small satchel filled with white crepe. In the next .en minutes two wallets, a watch and four soarf pins were missing. The evening cost the doctor something in the neighborhood of $900, and his disbelief in spirits is now something rabid. The police were aot notified. Bucklen's Arnica Salve.

Remarkable Experience of John Turk, a Pio neer of Helena. 89 Doses Taken at Once Did Not Kill, but Succeeded in Curing Him. John Turk, Cascade, Montana, took 39 doses of a so-called "San Francisco Quack's Medicine," at once, and was not killed, as promised by rival doctors. In Septom ber, 1889, he called on Dr. A. C. Stoddart, visiting physician for Dr. Liebig & Co., Llebig World Dispensary, San Francisco and Butte City, who had offices for two weeks at the Merchants Hotel, Helena. Mr. Turk had suffered for years with Rheumatism, Impurity of Blood and effects of mercurial Salivation. He had four of the best physicians in Montana attend him, and they failed to relieve him. Dr. Stod dart examined him, sent his prescriptions to Liebig Dispensary, San Francisco. to be prepared. Attar Dr. ttoddart left, Mr. Turk met the local doctors and told them what he had done. They laughed at him and said "that San Francisco quack would kill him." He was so frightened that when the medicino from San Francisco came he put the bottle upon a shelf at his house, 707 Park at set, Helena, and it stood neg lected until December (nearly three months) while Mr. Turk suffered day and night, had not slept half an hour at a time in years. Being in great agony late in December, at midnight. his eye caught sight of the so-called "Quack's?" medi cineO (TIIE QUACK HAPPENS TO HAVE THE MONTANA MEODICAL LICENSE AND 1S A DULY QUALIFIED PlHYtIOIAN AND SvURIEON FOR MON TANA.) He, in desperation decided to kill himself with the "Quack's" medicine, as he was told by former attending doctors it would kill him, so he swallowed half a month's medicine at once-39 doses-and fell asleep, slect until noon next day, and never has had a pain or ache since. The above reads like flction, but truth is stranger, and to prove that the above is true, write to John Turk, Cascade, Mon tana, or call on Mrs. E. Verley, or Mrs. A. H.
