Finny Prey First Put to Sleep With “Devil's Shoestring.” On the 1st of July the Indians will have near Sonora a big fish killing, which is considered great sport by them. Already a supply of "devil's shoestring'’ is being gathered for this purpose. This is the root of a certain bush, and owing to the fact that these roots go so deep, in so many direc tions, it is considered quite a task to get sufficient for use at a fish shoot. On this particular occasion It is said that 2,500 bundles of "devil's shoestring" will be used. The Indians select a portion or hole of water in the river, and some of them will beat up this root and throw It in the water. This is repealed by another parly of Indians a considerable distance from the first party, and the water be comes impregnated with the Juice, and the effect on whatever fish may be in this particular place is marvel ous. They become sick and float on the surface of the water, and then the shooting begins. The Indians shoot them with bows and arrows and spear them. After a sufficient quan tity of fish have been gathered in. they repair to the hills and banks The cleaning Is done by the squaws, and after they are cooked the feat! begins. While the fish arc sickened and stunned by the juices from the root, the meat is not affected.- ~ Forgot Christening In Sport. An enthusiastic angler had ar ranged to have his baby christened In the Adnarce church, Balllna, Ireland. To reach the church a stream had to be crossed. The mother and the nurse went over on the bridge. The father preferred to cross by boat and agreed to meet the others at the church door. He, however, could not resist the temptation to have a few casts with his rod and he hooked a salmon, a six teen-pounder. The anxious mother could see the proceedings from the church door, but half an hour elapsed before the salmon was landed. In the meantime the christening took place with the father at a distance.
