One of the peculiarities! oC the Indians mentioned in my Inst story is their love for dancing and it is doubtful if they will ever abandon or outgrow their desire to engage iii these barbaric methods of cele bration. On the 4th of August the reser vation is a scene of more than usual animation for it is the day of the annual corn dance, given as a sort of thanksgiving celebration of the harvest. For more than a Avcek prior to this date there is held a dance or endurance contest for the selec tion of candidates to participate in this annual dance. The young men enter a sort of cave, stifling hot, with but little air, and to the accompaniment of music ( ?) consisting of very wierd singing or "crooning" and the beating of torn toms these young men dance San Miguel Church until they faint from exhaustion. A certain number are to be chosen for the dancing and they are selec ted from those who have longest stood the fatigue of the contest dance. This preliminary dance is far more barbaric than that which forms a part of the annual corn dance, which consists chiefly of a procession in which the Indians wear their most gaudy apparel and the dancers are arrayed in the most fantastic costumes their wild imagination can suggest. I am informed that the govern ment intends to forbid these na tive .dances with the hope that the rising generation of the Indians C"s;?;:-::; R. P.

A very prominent writer has styled the city of Santa Fe as "An Old-World City in the New," and the appellation is most appropri ate, if I am to judge by what. I have read of the old world and what I have seen of the New, and especially in Santa Fc. In this great southwest, trav- erected in 1541. ersed through the very center, from boundary to boundary, by the Santa Fe. lines, the tourist finds a corner with the colorings of the Orient under beautiful "tur quoise skies," reveling in its ap pearance of antiquity that of an cient Babylon and Damascus. I have read about "that intangible air of mystery that the Moors brought from the Far East to Granada," and am inclined to be lieve that much of that same air has been transplanted to American soil and is still casting a spell over this sti-ange country, for here we see on every hand land marks of the days of centuries past, and OLD FORT MEIGS FARM of 52 acres Will be sold, from 5 to 10 acres, to suit purchaser.

CONTEST CLOSES SOON Hustlers for Piano Must Put in Best Work to the End Final Count Will Be Held Saturday, October 24. It Is Time to Get Busy. Nou listen! T! h a! ,r.i :J.tly no ti'uth in the .

'j'tr?ssive con testants to li'.rt subscriptions until the close oi' Hie contest and there is a bounty on them, loo. For every now subscription brought in a bounty of (100 vot -s in the Journal's Popular Voting1 Contest is paid. Some happy young lady is going to march away from the Journal office in just a short time wearing the smile that won't come off because that young lady will have won the grand Obermeyer & Sons piano. There are only a few more days left of this contest. That means that the race still belongs to anybody who has just a little initiative. The fact of the matter is that no one yet has such a start that it could not be easily overcome in a few days of con sistent work. This is certainly the most glorious opportunity that the young ladies of this com munity have ever had. Every contestant now thoroughly under stands the rides and methods of securing subscriptions and the majority of them have settled down to earnest, zealous work that eliminates idle dreaming and means working for some definite point: The aimless, haphazard so liciting has been dropped and a systematic campaign for votes is now in progress. You cannot tell how many votes a candidate really has by the score that was published for the reasons that he majority of contestants are wisely voting a very small portion of their strength, thus keeping their real strength covered up from their opponents. But the score in dicates those who can come to the front when the proper time ar rives. There is no question but what every one in and around Perrysburg has been solicited, or at least has heard about this con test. The better field for opera tion now lies in the country, as practically every one in the town is now a subscriber to the paper or never will be. The contest de partment wants to urge on every contestant the necessity for mak ing the next three weeks count for all they are worth. The time is growing short and it is only the real hustler who will have much of a show after that time. That is why it will pay to get in the game with all the en ergy you can command from this time until the close. Following arc the merchants giving votes: C. P. Champney, pharmacy. J. J.

Let us open the weekly session by quoting from a friend the following sublime truth: "The man who knocks the other fellow to you when he's not around is darn apt to knock you to the other follow when you're not around." There are candidates and candi dates good and no good in both parties, and we expect to re ceive calls from them and be given a sample of their talk and style of hand shaking, and by the way, we judge the candidates more by the handshake than the talk. If he gives us a limp clammy hand and expects us to do the work of shaking, he is no good; if he slaps uson the back, jarring our teeth loose, and then crush ing our fingers in a vice like grip, Ave gauge him as being too much of a jackass to be worthy of elec tion ; if he slips his hand in ours and grasps-our elbow with his left hand and talks in a "purring" confidential tone of voice we in voice him as being a hypocrite and unworthy of confidence; if he comes in without knocking; talks without bragging and minus promises; conducts himself in a modestly friendly manner and shakes hands like a gentleman, there is some chance of his mak ing a favorable impression with us.

The war in Europe has not affected the price of peanuts. You can still get more than you want for a nickel. The new. peace treaties, if we understand correctly, mean that hereafter a country that goes to war must understand what it is fighting about. We have known many a man whose voice was for war, but when it came to fight his legs were for peace. The new fall hats made them selves felt early. There are dumdum war corres pondents too.
