Shills of the Sierra tare n qui(t, ilnoffen-i gsive people. They do not appear to be governed by any tribal laws, yet adhe re to many of their old traditions. The tide of Industry and olivilization swerp. t ing over and around has left them great t modified by the contnet, and althoug h they retain tihe original charneterists I of the race, in some respects t I they are much improved. One or two men of superior ability and lI industry form a nucleus around which s others less ambitiouns gather. iHere they I fence with brush ant logs a tract stils- R clent for their requiretments of hay- a making, pasturage, etc. They invarin- a bly build their cabins .upon the most e sightly point, even when the spring that * furnishes their water is half-way down I o the hill. This habit has no doubt de- II Ssoeended from a warlike ancestry. and Ls a no evidence of an ;esthetic delight in P hazy valleys and misty mountain tops. P Their garens are not an assured str, t ecss when water la plentiful and the a1 weather propitious. They catnnot always P1 wait for their maturity. Many of them t are industrious and find renmunerative t work at wood-chopping, sheep-shearing, etc. ct Although they often indulge in the I food of civilized nations, the acorn i it still a favorite article of diet in every at well-regulated wigwam. The process of n converting this bitter nut into anything a like palatable bread is curious. LUnder (1t the branches of a grand old pine I found w them at work. They had shucked and tli ground in the usual manner a large Itt mass of the acorn meats; a number of at circular vats had been hollowed out of ._m the black soil, much the shape of a punch-bowl. Into these was pl put the acorn pulp. At hand stoosl m several large elothes-baskets filled with iIIl water,. and into these they dropped hot 'th stones, thus heating the water to the re- fr quired temperature. Upon the mass of lil crushed bitterness they carefully ladled Ti the hot water, making it about the color m and consistency of thin cream. Not a of speck appearedto mix. A buxom mu- ca bhaI stood by each vat ans with a small tIh fir bough stirred the mass, skillfully re. at moving any speck that floated upon the th surface. The soil gradually absorbed m the bitter waters, leaving a firm, white ca substance, of which they make bread. I I asked to taste of it, at which they rin said something in their language and all laughed. I asked again, and after more laughter I was handed a small particle upon a fig-leaf, and found it sweet and palatable. They began at once to re- re move it, and so adroitly was this done as that but a small portion adhered to the gp soil. They spread it upon the rocks, and in a short time it was fit for use. This, I as I am told, they mix with water, pat. into thin cakes and bake before the ire. ni he a Ugyptam Isatatllon 1400 .'C. [Oen. ltoae, In MII tary Journal.] The formation of the battalion for do combat was as follows: de The 100 captains formed the front ta rank of the battalion, and each captain let had his 100 men in file behind himt, a o' corporal at the head of each nine men. leI The chief of each 1,000 men was in front ke of the center of the two companies, while be the colonel commanding the grand bat- lIt tallon was in front of its center. wI The leaders were not mounted on lei horsebaek, but were mounted in two- I to wheeled chariots drawn usually by two ye horses. In the chariots were carried a supply of javelins and arrows for the use hu of the chief, who usually had in the char lot with him a soldier, who held a buck ler to cover him from the arrows of the enemy, while he dealt about hidm with his bow and spears. In the early days, and down to the u time of 8esostris, the officers and non. commissioned oieeoors carried bucklorns f, and swords, while the private soldiers of is infantry carried each a buckler and ia II, battle-ax. Sometimes the battle-ax was I. accompanied by, and sometimes replaced by, a spear. How to Change She Color of Plowern. IChicago Tribune.] It has for a long time been known that the color of growing flowers can be altered by shnply mixing a little dye. stuff with the mould in the flower-pot. No one, however, has hitherto thought of changing the color of flowers when out. A distinguished botanist has found that by simply soaking the stems of cut flowers in a weak dye solution their color can be altered at will with out the perfume or richness being de stroyed. Most beautiful effects are pro duced by preparing lakes. Singular to say, flowers refuse to absorb certain col. ors, while they dispose of others in dif ferent manners. If placed in a imixed solution, they make a complete analysis, and some lilies which had Iiien treated with purple showed distinct red and blue veins, the colors having been di vided in the process of absorption. Turkeys to the VIneyards. Turkeys are in demand among the vinoglowers of Fresno, ('al., who want them to range in the vineyards and eatch the slugs that are now attacking the vi.e . They found the turkey an excellent hand at the business. They would hire men and set theml at work, but a sulficient force is not obtainable when needed. But the turkey does the work nearly as well as a manu, and while catching the worms Is earning its own food.

R. 81M8' DRAMATIC METHOD. Planning tLe steoryl-UIlldlllg It Up DIaloage and Completion. (Poll MIll OGastte.1 When I get a cotnltission to write a piny the first thing I do, as a rule, is to decline itt because I know it means from t three to six months of mental misery and a long period of physical prostra tion after the work is finished. I have declined six commissions within the last few months, bweause I dread the task so much. Writing a play is the most ex hausting and the mnost distressing of all forms of literTry labor I have yet tried and I have tried my hand at a good manl:ly branclhes of the profession. When I have conquered tmy replgnanee so far as to unrdertake a play, however, this is how I pr)oted. I begin to plan my story, building it up sc.:; by scenle. This I write out in a book, and alter and alter until I have a clear story which I can tell act by act to a friend, taking care to let the end of each act be as ef fec.tive as possible: As soon as the story is clear I begin to look at the motives which actuate the villain andl the hero. If these are weak. I cast about for stronger ones. When I think that the motives are those that will account runsonably for all that hap pIns, I set to work to write the play that is to say, I complete the piece act by act, writing in the dialogue as I pro. eatl. Playwriting is both an art and a trick. There are certain "tricks of the trade" which, being unknown, lead the greatest artist into difliculties. An* audience must he written for, not at, and different audiences require differ ent treatment. A play which wouldt be an enormous success at one house would be a failure at another. It is, therefore, essential to bear in mind the house you are writing your play for. and pay attention to all the points which are known to tell best with those who will pay their money to be amused at the theater for which your play is intended. The great secret of success in dramatic work I believe to be the knowledge of what not to write. Half the plays that fall, do so be cause among the good stuff there is that which annoys an audience, or distracts its attention from the main points of the story. I endeavor as far u possible to remove every element of danger from a play when' I have written It. A line that is capable of a double meaning, has wrecked a play at a critical point more than once, and a dangerous sentiment has often turned the scale against the author, at a moment when a safe senti ment would have turned it in his favor. I am writing of course of that branch of play writing which I practice-ordinary e melodrama. Grand poetical plays,where the language and the main Idea carry the listener up Into a region removed from the bustle and strife of ordinary 1 life, are not judged by the same rules. The absurdity of a situation or a senti ment is lost sight of. Ibeause the audi ence, never having lived in the clouds, w cannot judge what they hear or see by their own experience. But in me. ,. drama, where the mosot exciting situa tions, and the strongest passlons of hu man nature are dealt with, the greatest care is necessary to see that the thin lino which separates the sublime front the ridiculous is not oversteppuld.
