Be Weds a Modern Maiden and Then Fines for Oblivion His Fin de Steele Bride Would Not Chop Wood Nor Draw Water. A tragedy occurred near the mouth of Willow creek, S. D., recently which for humor and touching pathos has yet to be equaled in the history of this sec tion of country. Paul Medicine Body, a Sioux warrior, becoming tired of life and disgusted with the perfidy of the weaker sex, attempted suicide at the end of a rope, and his aged father brought the instrument of destruction to Fort Pierre, appealing to the coro ner to go out iand "sit" upon the body of his son, who, he averred, was "much heap dead gulp a heap." As there was not sufficient evidence that the man was dead, however, the coroner declined to go. On October 20 last, says a recent dis patch, Paul Medicine Body and Martha Head wended their way happily over the hills and down through the can yons of Bad river to Fort Pierre. They were to be married, and all the pent-up joy of sizzling love could be seen spread ing itself over their swarthy features as they realized that the fruition of their hopes and desires was soon to be consummated. No more of the aimless life of a bachelor for Medicine Body. No more rude awakenings from long and blissful dreams of hunting gi-Qunds, of fabulous wealth, to the dull, prosaic necessity of building a fire and cooking breakfast. The cobwebs which had accumulated in the apex of his tepee would no longer impede the blue smoke from his wigwam fire as it curled heavenward to be lost in the clear at mosphere of his beloved Dakota land. He believed that "as the cord unto the bow is, so is woman unto man." Thus sang the joyous Medicine Body, and as he fondly conjured up scenes of his dutiful wife patiently cutting the pile of wood he thought what a noble being was woman! In adversity how comfort ing, and in prosperity how lovable! Medicine Body was given much to day dreaming on that eventful October morning, and the more he dreamed the faster grew his pace toward the clerk of the court's office. Johnston Jeff ries, who was then clerk of the courts, happened to be in a barber shop getting his whiskers trimmed, and it was there that Medicine Body found him. He applied for a license to wed the coy maiden, and Mr. Jeffries, who always carried one or more of those ' necessary documents about him, forth with produced one. Medicine Body, being of a thrifty and economical turn, then made overtures to the clerk of the courts, who was also a justice of the peace, to marry them on the spot in consideration of a cord of dry ash wood. The bargain was struck, and there, whiln the barber occasionally nicked his customers as he told a funny story, the solemn rites of holy matrimony were performed from the standpoint of a frontier justice of the peace. Medicine Body and his wife, with thumping hearts and minds full of an ticipations of joys to come, bestrode their ponies and set their faces toward the setting sun. Back over the hills and through the canyons they went to the ancestral tepee, where they ex pected to live a long life of unalloyed happiness together. But Medicine Body was doomed to be disillusioned. Martha would not cut the wood nor yet brush the cobwebs from his tepee, nor do many other things, small in themselves, but which in the aggregate go to make up the qualities of a dutiful, loving help meet, while her liege lord, the descend ant of a long line of noted warriors, sat and smoked his pipe in peace. So he became morose, sullen, and would no longer masticate the more or less savory dishes which Martha prepared for hira, until at last life became an in- ' tolerable burden to him and he took his trusty lariat and went hunting for a tree. Xo tree being in sight, he took the next best thm, a rafter in a barn, and sought a happy hunting ground, where women's rights had not entered its enlightening wedge and he could follow the traditions of his race without molestation. His friends, however, discovered him in time to save his life. One more argument on the side of those who claim that marriage is a failure. TAKING OUT THE SLANT. Japanese Eyes Straightened by an Ameri can Surgical Process. "All the subject has to do is to submit to a simple and comparatively painless operation, and hold his head still," says a Japan : correspondent of the Boston Herald. "I take a small scalpel in hand, that is the right, of course, and, stretch ing the skin with the forefinger of my left hand, make an incision on the outer point of the eyelid in a straight line for the barest part of an inch. The lashes are then drawn into shape, and held so firmly by a piece of the chemi cally prepared sticking plaster I have made strong enough for the purpose. The wound needs no further dressing, and the subject of the emperor and ex mikado of the Flowery kingdom goes on about his business as if nothing had happened. In a few days it is entirely healed, when I am sought to remove the plaster, and with the plaster comes my fee. This is the only bill I issue. "When the wound is healed the sub ject patrols the streets and enters the tea houses in high glee. His triumph over his friends is interesting to note, for then he looks upon his fellow-workers out of eyes as straight as mine, and with an aristocratic gleam of scorn. But I have no complaint to make of this exhibition of Japanese pride, which is always prominent when they have anything to be proud of. It is my liv ing advertisement, for soon all of the friends are at my door and ready for the transformation that will redeem the companionship clouded by the pride installed in those who have undergone the artifice which causes them to look down on their 'uncivilized friends.' "The direct result of this exhibition in the streets on the higher classes was also noticeable, as I began to receive calls to attend the celebrities of the kingdom. Prince Komatsu was my first royal patient. Then in rapid suc cession came Counts Okuma, Matoukata, Itatoka and Saiagoj Viscount Toni and Prince Konoie; M. Matsu, the minister of agriculture; and M. Kusumato, the great reformer; Gen. Oshhna, commander-in-chief of the army; Lieut. Gen. Nous, chief of the Fifth army corps, now stationed at Corea; Field Marshal Yamagata; Admiral D. Ito, commander of the imperial squadron; First Vice Admiral -Kabaysma, Second Vice Ad miral Senkicbi Ito, Third Vice Admiral S. Ariji, and Commodores Sakamato, of the Akagi, and Kurooka, of the train ing ships, have also visited me pro fessionally. "As a climax of the recognition my work received, I had a request from court to attend his imperial majesty, the emperor. I entered the royal chamber, as instructed, and found his majesty resting on a couch. His face was impassive, reserved and change less. He wore the undress uniform of a French general cherry-colored trou sers and black frogged coat braided with gold lace. He greeted me warm ly, emphasizing his regard for all Americans. I fulfilled the object of my call, and departed with but few words. "It is only during the past month that I have been performing the opera tion extensively, but from all appear ances I am not going to be able to at tend to all callers myself in the future. It has often impressed me how much the straightened Japanese optic re sembles that of the beloved Caucasian. Transformed it is really beautiful." PIGEONS FOR PROFIT. Directions for Raisins the Birds nn the Average Farm. There is too much loss among pig eons when they are allowed to fly over the whole neighborhood. Boys trap them, hawks and cats are on the look out for them, and the hunters will take chance shots at them when it can be done without risk. They I'.iay easily be confined. For fifty r.ciirS have a house about ten by twenty feet, the upper story of some building being pre ferred. The yard should be about twenty by fifty feet, not less than ten feet high, and covered on the top and sides with wire. One of the essential points in keep ing pigeons is to have the sexes equal. If there is an extra male, he will make an attempt to secure a mate from the other males, and thus break up the matings, as well as to keep the colony in perpetual turmoil. He must be taken out or a mate for him must be procured from elsewhere. Keep the house and yard clean, and place plenty of litter on the floor for nest materials. Lice are very destruc tive to pigeons, and must never be al lowed to become established, as they will render the flock unprofitable.' Pigeons should be kept supplied with plenty of wheat and cracked corn, as well as keeping boxes of ground bone and meat, charconl, ground oyster shells and rock salt where they can help themselves. A salt codfish is usu ally hung up where they can pick it. and chopped cabbage or other veg etable food may be placed where they can use such if they prefer. They will hatch and raise from six to ten pairs of squabs a year, and the squabs usually sell for about twenty five cents each. Old pigeons command no RP.le, being kept for breeding pur poses only. If kept in confinement, they will aily Of iUl the New and Novel Goods. Heyman Furniture Co Wholesale and Retail. B. Tailoring. WARNING!

A statue of Robert Burns' Highland Mary is to be erected on the Firth of Clyde, on the rocks in front of the ruins of Dunoon castle, not far from the farm house where Mary was born. It is hoped that the statue can be unveiled on the hundredth anniversary of the death of Burns, July 31, 1890. A marble head in the Louvre, com monly called "A Greek King- as Hercu les," has been identified by Dr. Win ter, of the Berlin Antiquarian museum, as being a portrait of Mithridates the Great, king- of Pontus, the great enemy of the Romans. Dr. Winter thinks the head was carved at Rhodes, which was a great art center in the time of Mith ridates. A remarkable collection of impres sionist pictures left by M. Gustave Cail lebotte to the state has been refused by the French government. Among the pictures are Masset's "Balcon" and "Femine a la Mantille Koire," Renoir's 'Moulin de la Galette" and "Balan coire," the "Choeu de Soldats,"and "Ter rasse d'un Cafe" of Degas, Claude Mo net's "Dejeuner" and "Givre," and a number of landscapes of Cezanne, and a large well-selected series of typical works of the school.
