I came to tell you of the past life of
the Indians here. Some time ago
there were no houses but Indian
houses. No white man lived here
then. Had lots to eat those days—
lots of meat. The buffalo are all
killed now and the Indians have
very little to eat now. My heart is
good to see so many people liere.
Treat me good. All Indians' hearts
good now. Trust in God for the
future. Good feeling with every
body. That's all."
Washington, 8: Miss Ilattie Snell,
a little girl of thirteen years, living
at Johnsonville, N. Y., where the
Episcopal society were trying to
raise money to build anew church,
conceived the plan of sending to the
statesmen at Washington to secure
aid. She wrote letters to nearly
everybody whose names appear in
the congressional directory, asking
each to contribute a few bricks. Her
plan was so novel that the responses
were very large, and among the con
tributors were President Arthur, all
the members of the cabinet, General
Sheridan, Vice President Edmunds,
Speaker Carlisle, many of the senat
ors and a large number of congress
men. Now she proposes to sell the

About 8 o'clock Saturday evening,
H. P. Ernst of St. Paul was drowned
in White Bear lake. Ernst and a
man named Teauber landed in a
boat around the point of the-island.
Ernst proceded to take a bath, while
Teauber took a walk along the shore
to pick up shells and pebbles. When
Teauber returned to the place where
Ernst had been, he found his friend's
clothes on the shore, but the friend
was not to be seen. The body has
not yet been recovered. Ernst's wife
procured a divorce from Jiim at the
last term of district court, on the
ground of an adultery committed
with one Lena Krentt, After the
divorce was granted, on the 20th
day of June, Lena Krentt and Ernst
were both arrested for adultery at
the instance of the husband of the
former, and both were placed under
bonds to appear at the next term of
the district court for trial.
The statue of Margaret Haugliery,
the first monument ever raised in
thd United-States to a woman, was
unyeUed last week in New Orleans
in the presence of an immence audi
enee, including hundreds of orphans
from the asylum of the city. Mar
iret Haughery was an unlettered
woman, who by her energy
and industry amassed a competence.
Although a devout and fervent
Catholic, she knew no creed and re
cognized no faith in the dispensation
o£ her benevolence. Although she
responded to all worthy calls for
assistance, she bestowed most of her
bounty on the orphans, and when
she died ehe was known as the or
phans' friend. The statue repres:
ents Margaret sitting in a chair
clasping an orphan to her side, while
her nand rests upon the child, who
is^bending forward, looking up into
her face. The pedestal surmount
ing the base is of Italian marble.
The group is also of Italian marble.

Moorhead Department Argus, 21:
A game of base bail between the
Moorhead and Breckenridge clubs
took place on the Moorhead grounds
yesterday afternoon. A large crowd
wais present. The first inning at its
completion indicated that the Breck
enridge boys would just have to take
the game, the score standing five
to one in their favor. After this,
however, the Moorheads caught their
second wind, and caught it so effect
ively that at the end of the ninth
inning the score stood eleven to
eleven. A tenth inning was necess
ary, in the course of which Moor
head took seven runs and the game,
the Breckenridge getting but a scant
five. Frazee, of Fargo, did some
good work in the pitcher's box for
the Moorhead club.

Wives aud. Barkeepers.
Wives who have drinking hus
bands should cut this out and paste
it on the looking glass. A western
journal has the following very prac
tical remarks for those who cannot
get along without frequent whiskies:
Liquar dealers pay on an average
two dollars per gallon for whisky.
One gallon contains an average of
sixty-five drinks, and at ten cents a
drink, Ihe poor man pays six dollars
and a half pet gallon for his whisky.
In other words, he pays two dollars
for his whisky and four dollars and
a half to the man for handing it
over the bar. Make your wife your
bar-keeper. Lend her two dollars to
buy a gallon of whisky for a begin
ning, and every time you want a
drink go and pay ten cents for it.
By the time you drink a gallon she
will have six dollars and a half, or
enough to refund the two dollars
borrowed from you to pay for
another gallon of whisky and a bal
ance of two dollars and a half. She
will be able to conduct future opera
tions oniier own capital, and when
you become an inebriate, unable to
support yourself, shunned and dis
pised by all respectable persons, your
wife will have enough money to
keep you until you get ready to fill
a drunkard's grave.
How Arrow-Heads Were Made.
A very interesting question, says
a writer in the Chicago Tribune,
that is ever presenting itself-..to the
white man is: IIow did the Indians
form their arrow-heads and spear
points? One writer will tell us that
undoubtedly they knew of a means
of hardening copper (unknown to
us) and Iron, and thus made tools
with which they, shaped tlieni.
Others, again, think this in advance
of the red man's knowledge, and as
sert that he used a fish-bone as a
chisel with which he chipped off the
edges of his flint but this fish-bone
like others, wouldn't go down. A
year ago I was visiting around Nip
persink and Pishtaqua Lakes where
the Fox Indians were formerly num
erous. I saw several mounds and
burial places and many arrow heads,
etc, in possession of the inhabitants,
having been plowed up in the fields.
On the shores of the Pishtaqua lake
limestone and granite are found in
great abundance, and occasionally
bits of porphyry I take it—some
with red and some with blue mark
ings. Among the heads I saw were
some that seemed to be made of
this material though varying some
what in color.
collected some of the most flinty
looking pieces, and, while meditat
ing how a person without tools
would shape a *'liead" or "point"
from them, my eye rested upon a
pyramidal coral formation on a
piece of limestone. I wanted it. I
took a thin spall of granite as a
chisel and a gourd shaped cobble
stone as a mallet. Upon pounding,
I noticed the granite spalled off, al
ways leaving a sharp edge. Here
was the secret. Arrow-heads were
made by simply striking the flint on
the edge with a rounded surface,
and by directing the blow to one
side or the other, the edge could be
kept quite true. The thong-groove
is made by using a stone with a
sharp rounded edge. I made sever
al, and they all passed as -genuine,
except with those who were used to
handling them, and they would look
wise and say, "They look all right,
but the Indians never used that ma
terial in making them." I after
ward obtained a piece of flint, and
had no difficulty in shaping orfe.
Flint being hard and brittle, and
the fracture conchoidal, it is easy to
work, and is wby the red man se
lected it. F. M.

Reuben Cleveland's Funeral.
The other day Win. Brophy of
McCauleyville received word that
Heuben Cleveland,, a brother-in-law
at Chicago had died, and he at once
set out to attend the funeral, Mrs.
Brophy's health not admitting of
the journey, which occured the 13th
instant at that city. "We notice that
the Inter Ocean and Tribune of Chi
cago give quite extensive reports of
the obsequies. In the course of the
Inter Ocean's remarks, said that Mr.
Cleveland was born at Montreal 1814,
and was consequently 70 years of
age, his parents being of English
descent, and settled in Connecticut
at an early day. He was married to
Miss Julia Slawson at Clinton, N.Y.,
when 18 years of age, and is a near
ralativo of Gov. Cleveland of New
York. During the war he went in
to the army and was captain of com
pany F, Eighth Illinois cavalry. It
seems that he was a pioneer in Chi
cago and was widely known and
much respected by everyone. Mr.
Brophy said this was the largest fun
eral procession he ever saw in Chi
cago. The Inter Ocean closed its
obituary as follows:
"Mr. Cleveland became a member
of the Masonic order in 1854 in this
city. At a later date he founded
Cleveland Lodge No. 211, which still
bears his name. He was a member
of Cleveland Lodge, Washington
chapter, Apollo commandery, Orien
tal. consistory and the Red Cross of
Constantine, being a 32d degree
mason. He was a member of post
28, G. A. It., and of the Veteran
Union League club. Mr. Cleveland
was a man whose loss will be keenly
felt by all who knew him and his
friends were legion."
The following is the notice of the
"The funeral of Reuben Cleveland
yesterday afternoon was attended
by a large gathering of friends and
members of the various associations
with which the deceased was con
nected. The procession formed in
front of the house of Ezra Cleveland,
No. 176 Walnnt street, and marched
to Park Avenue Methodist Episcopal
Church, where the funeral services
First came a body of the Grand
Army of tho Republic and Union
Veterans. After them was the
Apollo Comnjandery, No. 1, Knights
Templar, about seventy strong, un
der the command of H. T. Tiffany,
and headed by four drummers of the
Second Regiment. Next followed
some forty members of the Oriental
Consistory under II. II. Pond, and
about the same number of the Wash
ington Chapter. The Cleveland
Lodge, of which the deceased was
Master-Masou, turned out in force,
125 members marching in front of
The church was densely crowded.
The devotional exercises were con
ducted by the Rev. Samuel Davis,
and the musical part of the service
was exquisitly rendered by the
Apollo Commandery quartet, under
the leadership of Mr. C. C. Phillips.
Dr. Thomas spoke in touching
terms of the little group of mourners
present, and referred one by one to
the various orders which had come
to pay their respects to the memory
of the dead. It was tender and
affecting, he said, to see the Grand
Army of the Republic and the Union
Veterans place their flag about the
coffin of one who had never dishon
ored it, but had placed his life bet
ween it and dishonor. In alluding
to the deceased the speaker said that
he lived not to himself—his love
took in his neigbors, his country,
and all the orders represented. He
was unobtrusive and consistent he
made no great profession, and yet
in the sanctuary of his heart he tried
to be a true man to his house, his
order and his country.
The quartet then sang "Shall We
Meet Beyon the River?" and those
present were thereafter permitted
to file past the coffin and view for
the last time the face of the deceased.
The pall-bearers were: T. T. Gur
ney, John Murphy, Charles C. Crane,
P. J. Hussander, T. P. Pen-it, P.
