Mrs. Molineux Declares Red Man Can
Be Led, but Will Not Be Driven.
Salt Lake City. To have mothered
one or possibly two tiny lives through
the strenuous days of early infancy is
a task that most women consider plen
ty, but Mrs. Elizabeth Molineux, .until
recently a teacher In the United States
Indian service, has the distinction of
having mothered a whole tribe of Piute
Indians, and claims the satisfaction of
having raised them, old and young,
from a condition bordering on the
squalid state where they consider
cleanliness next to godliness and, one
and all, are heartily in favor of both.
Mrs. Molineux recently resigned her
post as teacher on the Shivwits res
ervation in southern Utah and is in
Salt Lake resting preparatory to going
to Ketchikan, AlaBka, to take charge
of the Episcopal church's mission
school there. She is a guest at the
home of the Right Rev. Paul Jones,
bishop of the Episcopal diocese of
Utah, while here.
Indians have become a hobby with
this diminutive little Scotchwoman.
She speaks their languages and in her
eight years of service with the Indian
department has been intimately asso
ciated with the trials and tribulations
that beset poor Lo on his native heath.
Mrs. Molineux Is an ardent church
woman and attributes her success in
dealing with Indians to the fact that
by blending religious teachings with
the "three R's" she has dismissed dis
trust of her from the minds of her
charges and has always been regarded
by them more in the light of a friend
than a teacher. She declared the In
dian mind to be susceptible to teaching
if properly approached, but adds that
he can be led but will not be driven.
Hound, Sighting Game, Leaps
Over Mud Shield and Lands
Twenty Feet Ahead of Car.
Lamed, Kan. An exciting coyote
chase in automobiles took place uear
Ilanston. The imrty consisted of Bill
Haun, John Ilaiin, Mr. and Mrs. Irvlu
Seaninn and William Warring. They
went in two ears and took three grey
hounds Iji each ear.
Mr. WiiiTing says that auto polo is
mild compared with the way those two
cars chased across the prairie, ravines
and bluffs after coyotes. He said that
his speedometer registered forty mile
one time when he dared to glance at lt
and he was afraid to look again.
They were going along between twerw
ty and thirty miles au hour at the tins
they started up the tirst coyote, ani
when the biggest hound in Mr. War
ring's car sighted the wolf It leaped
over the wind shield and hood and
landed running twenty feet ahead of
the car. The coyote was a big fellow,
but the hounds finally brought him
down, the big hound throwing him.
while the others pinned him down.
While chasing the first coyote the
other auto nearly ran over another one,
which leaped up almost from under the
wheels of the ear. The men shot at It
several times, wounding it, but because
of the speed of the bounding car could
get but poor aim. It finally ran Into a
hole and was fished out with a wire.
Messrs. Haun and Seaman have killed
many coyotes. "

The Famous "Green Man of Brighton."
In October, 1806, an individual was
to be observed at Brighton, England,
who walked out every day dressed in
green from head to foot green shoes,
green gloves, green handkerchief and
other articles to match. This eccen
tric person lived alone, knew nobody,
and in his house the curtains, the wall
paper, the furniture, even the plates
and dishes and the smallest toilet ar
ticles, offered an uninterrupted se
quence of green. Having started on
his career, there was obviously no rea
son to stop, andwith full consistency
he carried his scruples so far as to eat
nothing but fruit and vegetables of the
same green color. The consequences
were extremely disastrous. One fine
day the green man Jumped from his
window into the street, rushed forward
and performed a second somersault
from the top of the nearest cliff.

In the angle between the Kings and
Kern canyons lies a woodland empire
beside which the Harz and Black for

diminutive. Within the borders of the
Sequoia National park and the General

no fewer than 1,160,000 sequoia trees,
and of these 12,000 are more than ten
feet in diameter. In the Sequoia Na
tional park stauds the largest tree in
the world not the tallest, but the larg

diameter of 30.5 feet nud a height of

"Say, pa," queried small Bobby,
"what is gossiping, anyway?"
"Gossiping, my son," replied the old
man, "If we get right down to the
plain, unvarnished facts, is lying. But
why do you ask?"
"Because," answered the young in
vestigator, "ma says you do a lot of
gossiping every time your business
keeps you late at the office." Ex

"Does your minister practice what he

"He does," the citizen answered, with

morning to practice what he is going
to preach." New York Times.

Don't Believe Her When Sh. 8ays
She'll B. Your. Friend.
New York. "When a girl says, I
cannot bo your wife, but I'll be your
friend,' she tries to speak the truth,
but utters a psychological falsehood,"
declared Professor Charles Gray Shaw,
head of the philosophy department of
the New York university, in a lecture
at the institution.
Professor Shaw argued that no wom
an could be a friend to men or to
women, because a friend requires a
clear cut personality and a disinter
ested outlook on life. Both of these,
he asserted, women lack. He also de
clared that friendships between men
were passing from the earth.
'"Woman cannot be a friend because
she is never an individual, for to be
an individual one must stand alone,"
ho said. "Only those who stand alone
can come together."
Professor Shaw said that woman was
like a planet well adapted to revolve
about some center, "but not organized
in such a way as to stand alene."
"Unfortunately, masculine friend
ships are Just passing from the earth,
and in the course of time friends will
be found only in museums, along with
other aboriginal products. This, mel
ancholy situation is due to the fact
that modern life tends to destroy per
sonality and a philosophic view of the
world. Man is bound to man not by
tie's of friendship, but by bonds of pro
fessionalism which are usually of a
commercial character."
Able to Express Their Thoughts
Perfectly by Its Use, Says
Mining Engineer.
Carlisle, Pa. That entire tribes of
Indians In Mexico carry on long con
versations by means of whistling is as
serted by Harold T. Mapes, mining en
gineer, who was for twelve years in
Mexico, but now lives in Carlisle.
Mapes declares that the Indians have
a whistling language and are able to
express their thoughts perfectly by Its
use. He says it is not a series of signs
or calls signifying danger, love, fear,
peace, war, eta, but a regular language,
by which the most subtle shades of
thought may bo expressed.
Like people in other parts of the
world, the Mexican Indians occasion
ally whistle for their dinners, only they
are able to explain by their whistles
exactly what kind of a dinner they
want either a simple meal of tortillas
and frljoles or a more elaborate feast
of enchiladas and mole guajalote, with
cervezt or vino.
Mapes says that he understands that
the whistling language has been hand
ed down from generation to generation
from the time of the Toltecs and Az
tecs and that Indian lovers can put a
world of tenderness and passion into
their whistled declarations of love or
stir their fellows to heroic deeds by
the fierceness with which they whistle
a call to arms.
A whistling language has been used
from time immemorial by the Swiss
mountaineers, and Neapolitan sailors
converse frequently by means of whis
tling. Convicts in the big Jails In Na
ples converse freely by means of whis
tling, and there is apparently no limit
to their whistling vocabulary.
Georgia Setter Does Good Work After
Visit to Oculist
Moultrie, Ga. Fanny, a thorough
bred setter, wears spectacles. She was
fitted with glasses by an oculist, who
found that she had astigmatism.
For years Fanny has been known as
one of the best hunting dogs In this
section. Before the opening of the
quail season this year she went to the
fields by herself and on returning
showed evidence of bad falls. Fanny
could not help falling Into ditches and
running Into trees. Then It was dis
covered that her eyes had become af
fected. It la believed the glasses will correct
the trouble. At least Fanny now is do
ing her work as well as usual.

Crude 8tone Idol Probably Antedate
Indian Mound Builders.
Madlsonville, Ky. E. L. Littlepage
of the Morton Gap country brought to
this place recently a stone Image that
is a curiosity and probably of historic
Mr. Littlepage found it at the edge
of a cave on a high elevation in North
Christian county, Ky., while investigat
ing some prospective oil land belonging
to him. The cave is located in a wild
and broken section of land uncultivat
ed and but thinly Inhabited.
The image Is rudely carved out of a
tough, ferrous sandstone. It is about
six Inches In height and is well pre
served, except for a slight injury on
one side of its head and slight weath
ering of one arm. The figure Is in a
sitting position, with its legs doubled
under its body and arms extended in
front, with hands resting on its knees.
The image is evidently a relic of an
Idol worshiping people and antedates
any old Indian relic found in various
Indian mounds in western Kentucky.

Commissioner of,- Immigration Hew
Predicts That United States Will Be
come an Emigrant Rather Than an
Immigrant Nation at the End of Hos
tilities In Europe.
New York. A prediction that the
United States would become an "emi
grant" rather than an "immigrant" na
tion at the close of the- war was made
by Commissioner of Immigration Fred
eric C. Howe at the Sunday evening
forum of the Free synagogue.
Mr. Howe took the stand that immi
gration was purely an economic ques
tion and declared that It had been
such from the beginning. He said that
those who opposed immigration did so
because they desired to limit the com
petition of unskilled foreign labor;
those who favored the wide open door
did so because it made labor cheap.
He said the Immigrant no longer
went to the farm because all the avail
able land of the country had been tak
en up, hundreds of millions of acres
being held for purely speculative pur
poses. "The immigration problem never ex
isted so long as the land was free for
the asking," said Mr. Howe, "and it is
this scarceness of land which makes
Immigration an economic question.
"It Is a matter of freeing labor on
one hand from the competition of the
incoming labor groups from Europe
and of Insuring to the Immigrant an
opportunity to work for himself rather
than for an employer Interested in se
curing his services at the lowest pos
sible cost
"I keep more or less in touch with
the centers to which go most of the
men who pass through Ellis island. I
am told that everywhere the men now
employed in our shops and factories
who at homo worked as farmers are
saving their money to return to the
old country. They have always wished
to own their own farms they came
here for that purpose and they figure
that after the war land will be cheap
in the countries overseas. This senti
ment, spreading among our workers,
will result in a serious crisis in our
industrial life."
Mr. Howe also discussed the servant
question. He said that since the war
there had been practically no servant
girls coming to this country and that
many of those who were in service had
left it to enter munition factories and
offices, while others had married or
To regulate the tide of oriental im
migration and, in fact to check in some
measure immigration from any land
Dr. Sydney L. Gullck, an authority on
Japan, suggested that, for example, if
a thousand Syrians came to this coun
try in 1900 and ten years later all had
taken out American citizenship then
another thousand might be admitted.
If, however, only 300 had applied for
naturalization papers the decision of
the remaining 700 to still be Syrians
automatically would keep an equal

Teaching Birds Tricks.
A professor of natural history re
futes the statement so frequently mada
that teaching a bird to draw water
needs apparatus and that the learning
Is cruelty to the bird.
"The following experience of mine,'1
he says, "proves that It is not so by
any means. We bought a young bird
last January, so wild that on our ap
proach it flew madly round the cage.
We hung the cage low and by patience,
after the bird got used to our proxim
ity, Induced it to take groundsel, first
held at stem's length, then between the
fingers, finally from the lips. We used
to let him out freely, and be would
perch on the loaf next me at break
fast His perch projected through the
wires, and here was his favorite seat
when at liberty. Then I tried hanging
a bit of groundsel by a short string to
the projecting stick. After inspection
he pulled It up with his beak. On
lengthening the string with a fresh
bit of his preferred weed I had the
pleasure and interest of seeing him
pull up the string with bis beak till
the flower head was within reach,
catching the Black after each pull wlih
one foot and then transferring it to
the other, so that the coils were quite
neat" London Globe.
Water Pressure.
As early as 1G4S a Frenchman of
science named Pascal experimented
with pressures applied to liquids and
discovered the following law: A pres
sure applied to any part of the sur
face of a liquid Is transmitted un
changed in amount in every direction
through the liquid.
Perhaps the most familiar applica
tion of Pascal's law is the hydraulic
press. In that machine n pump having
a small piston drives water Into a large
cylinder and thereby foncs upward i
large piston, which compresses what
ever is placed between the platform of
the piston and the fixed crossbeam at
the top of the press. If the area or
the larger piston Is 100 times that or
the smaller a downward force of one
pound exerted on the smaller piston
of 100
will create an upwnrd force
pounds upon the larger piston.
