ONCE AN INDIAN FIGHTER. tonatnr Shnup of Idaho V ItolouM blr Warrior ami Sront. George K Shoup, who was recently re-elected United states nenator from Idaho, has participated in many a des perate battlowith tho Indians, and lur ing the war miulo quite a reputation M a scout and Indian tighter. Ho was born Jn Kittanning, Pa., Juno 13, 1836, and at the ngo of 16 accompanied his father to Galesburg, Ills., whoro ho engaged in farming and stock raising until 1859, when the gold fever lured him to Colo rado. He devoted himself to mining and mercantile pursuits until the outbreak of the war. and then enlisted in Cap tain Backus' company of scouts. His marked talent for military affairs soon won him tho position of second lieutenant, and during 1S61 and 1863 he engaged iu many skirmishes with Con federates and hostile Indians, and won a first lieutenancy. He was sent in pur suit of a band of Comanches many times outnumbering his little command, fol lowed them 500 miles into the Indian country, routed tho entire band, cap- george l. snour. tured the chief and recovered a large quantity of stolen property. For this service ho was officially commended for "zeal, energy, perseverance and self de nial. " In tho winter of 1S62-3 he cap tured a much larger force of Confeder ates under Captain Russell, and it is said that his command never met with defeat. In 1864 he became colonel of the Third Colorado cavalry and routed another band of hostile Indians, killing more than 300 of them. At tho close of the war he engaged in business at Salmon City, Ida., and has since been ono of the commonwealth's must energetic citizens. He was a mem ber of the eighth and tenth territorial legislatures, was a delegate to the na tional Republican convention in 1SS0, has twice been a member of the Repub lic national committee and was appoint ed governor of the territory in 1SS9. He was prominent in securing statehood and in 1S0O became the state's first governor. After serving 2 months as governor he was elected CTnited States senator Dec. IS, 1890, and if he lives and does not resign will remain in the senate until March 3, 1 90 J. THE GIRL WITH THE GRIP. "Der Drummer" Is 'o fonter of th Male Persuasion Exclusively. The new woman is making a decided hit as a drummer. She has only been on the road two or three years, but she is earning a good living and turning in about as many orders as her more experienced male rival. It is 6aid that St. Louis alone furnishes 25 of the small army of women drummers at pres ent traveling from town to town solicit ing orders throughout the United States. Two of these young women are Misses Jennie and Katie Snodgrass, who travel for a vinegar firm and are facetiously referred to as "the sour girls." They have been on the road about two years and have been so very successful that they intend to continue in the business until they die or get married. "The woman drummers are success ful, as a rule, " Miss Jennie said recent ly. "As yet they are a decided novelty, and this fact may account for much of the favor with which they have been re ceived, but I think they have come to stay and that they will soon be as plen- THE SNODGEASS SISTERS. tiful as the woman typewriter and ste nographer. The life is an independent, profitable and not altogether unpleasant one, and if a girl is compelled to earn her living there are many less promis ing fields of labor for her to enter. To succeed, however, she must have pluck, force of character, industry, tact and ambition. The most unpleasant features of the business are catching early and late trains, sitting around country de pots, and traveling in all sorts of con veyances. One of the amusing features i3 the sensation the lady drummer cre ates in a small town. She is subjected to any amount of good natured staring, but it rarely assumes an offensive form." The woman drummer is not eligible to membership in the Travelers' Protect ive association, but drummers, as a rule, are friendly to her. The secret of the new woman's success as a drummer is not difficult to guess. It is the hardest thing in the world fcr a man to refuse a request made by a woman, especially If she happens to be fair to look upon. Homemade Hats. By one of the laws of Henry VII every male in England above the age of 7 years was commanded to wear on Sundays a hat made of English wool and manufactured in England by Eng lishmen. The penalty was a fine of 3 pence for each infraction of tho law. The Advertiser acd Gazette on sale at Hilo, J. A Martin news agent Concert at Thomas Square.
