The new Indian agency between
Grand River and Port Rico, called
Stauding Rock, derives its name
from a large boulder standing out
alone upon the prairie about three
miles from the river. Theres is a
otrange Indian superstitio,, connected
with this rock, and the Sioux City
(Iowa) Journal thus tolls it :
"W made a visit to it a short
time ago in Company with Major
Palmer, tho agent at that agency,
who told us the legend of the roda re
garding it. Many years ago a power.
ful band of Indians made that section
their stamping grounds. The chief
of the band deserted his old wife for
a young squaw. This sogrieved the
old Queen that she went back from
the river and sat upon the ground
and mournod for several days. Upon
the ninth day of her grief she turned
into this large boulder. The Indians
at that agency all believe this story
to this day, and worship the boulder
as a God. The rock has boen decora
ted with ribbons, pieces of red flannel
and every high colored piece of cloth
they have been able to get hold of
since tiue out of mind. These deco
rations are replaced as often as they
become decaved or blown away by
the winds. 'At the time of our visit
it was trimmed in the most gorgeous
trappings imnginable. Every por
tion of it wats covered with ribbons,
or rags or paint. Within a few
inches of the sacred stone is a pail or
water that is never allowed to be
come empty ; for it is the belief of
these ignorant people that the old
gleen of their ancestors frequently
ILsumeICS the folmi of a squLw and
drinks the water. In former years
shc dra nk iluch more than at present
they ,ay, but this is easily explained.
Then there was inore gaen there,
which, in wavndering to the pail,
drank the watcr. To disturb this

Kerosue tamps--lhow to Prev Cit lx
This is tile season when ncarly every
puper we take up relates somec hori
ble casualty from tho explosion of L
kerosene lamp, or the like, and wo
men and children are either killed
outright or terriblyburned andsea red
for life. A simple knowledde of
the infla'nmable nature of the finuid
would probably put an end to nearlv
all the accidents. First, no lat miS
should never be filled after dark hr
the light of a candle. Always do
this work after the breakfast dilh!
are put away, and then not only 1i'1
them, but wash the chimney,, for if
they are dim and smoky, you ennuos
expect tohave a bright light. Tak0
the chimney in one hand and breuth
r through it, then draw a large whi. -
of paper up and down it, and all t ho
blur will be removed. If the chim.
i ney is blackened with lamp siioke,
turn warmish water through the tul o
and then wipo out with paper in th
same style as before. If the laipi
are glass, and they become eloud(
with a deposit from the kerosmu,
take lime water that is milky wihL
ithe lime and shake it up in the lamp.
Do this with two different washinv;4,
and all the deposit will be removed.
A little chloride of lime, dissolved in
warm water, and left in a lamp or
can which has held kerosene, wi!l
dooeorizo it very soon. Liamaps mnu.
be filled every morning. This is an
imperative duty for 'every housekeep.
er to perform, for as the oil burni
down in the lamp, there is created a.
highly inflammable gas, which gath.
era imperceptible over the surface,
and as fast as to oil is consumed, this
gas increases, so when the oil is
nearly out of the lamp, the slightes
jar of the table will set the gas oi
fire ; an explosion follows intanstane
ously, anid a bombshell would not be
more destructive, for its torches are
deathly. But if the oil is burned
only half way down in your lamps
the gas is not of sufficient power t.
do any injury ; therefore let me beg
of you never to defer the operation o f
lamp-tilling to another day, but sot
yourself that it is done.
