THE SEDALIA WEEKLY BAZOO. TUESDAY, JUNE 16, 1885. HOW THE LAPPS L'VE. v 4 temething About the People Who Iivi Way up by the North Pole. In Sweden and Finland the Lappj Are usually divided into fisher, mountaii and forest Lapps; the latter two an the true representatives of the race n Norway they are classed as sei Lapps, river Lapps and mountair Lapps; the first two settled, the last, wandering or nomadic. Their habits are most conservative, and can hardlj "have altered since the far distant time when they first tamed the reindeer. Reindeer form the chief wealth of the Lapps, and Thomson's lines may still jbe taken as an accurate description ol ithe uses to which their skins and horns fare put, although one would think spoons more likely than cups to be carved out of the latter; but then where would a great deal of poetry be if the poet could not draw on his poetic license at pleasure; perhaps, however, Thomson alluded to the milk "The reindeer form their riches: these their tents. Their robes, their beds, and all their homely weaun Supply; tbeir wholesome food and cheerful cups. The mountain Lapps have learned to drink cofl'ee and wear stout Norwegian cloth, but they set as much store by the reindeer as ever. A poor family" will :ave fifty and upward in a flock, the niddle classes three hundred to seven Iiundred, and the richest one thousand or more. The reindoer is as much be hoved by the Lapp as his pig by the irishman, and the reindeer often sleep in his hut in much the same fashion. The Lapp will whisper to his reindeer "when harnessing him to his sleigh, and "will tell him where he is to go, "and de clares he understands him. The rein deer is much like a stag, only smaller: all the people, animals, and trees in Lapland are very diminutive, the men are mostly under five feet high, and the women under four feet nine inches, so ;great are the rigors of the climate in this as in all countries under the arctic .circle, and the cows, sheep, and goats are all small in proportion. In sum mer the reindeer feed upon grass, and tgive excellent milk; in the winter they feed upon moss, which they scratch up under great depths of snow with mar vellous instinct. When winter draws ! near, great numbers are killed, and the ilesh is dried and smoked to provide food when the ground is covered with snow, and but few birds, like ptarmi gan, partridges, and caper-cailzie. are met with. The llesh is very nutritious, and after a course of grass feeding it is surprising how soon the reindeer case-Knne in cne oeic, ana a little iron pipe for their delectation in smoking, 3 VI ri" mm suuiuuujtj a gun liKe a pea-niie.

If the sleigh turns over, which it does sometimes, the occupant can not fall out, as he is so tightly packed in with skins; but he has an awkward time of it and o-p.t.q aadlv bumned in the snow lif the reindeer dash off at full speed, as they have a habit of doing. The Lapps all live by fishing ana hunting. Their game is elk, bears, foxes, and wolves, with ermines and squirrels. The Russian Lapps are chiefly fishers; they are quiet, hospi table, honest, and inoffensive, and de cidedly favorable specimens of a semi civilized race still retaining theii patriarchal traditions. The father ii supreme in the family, and can appor tion his property at death, and disin herit any of his children should he sea sfit.

The skin makes their dresses and boots, the sinews their thread and fishing-lines, and the horns their spoons and domestic utensils. 'The utensils are not all of horn; the ILapps have always some kettles of cop per and iron, and sometimes also bowls of wood and tin, or even of silver among the rich ones. The wandering Lapps usually live in rude huts, formed of trees or "poles in the shape of a cone, with an opening in the center to allow the smoke to escape, and a few mats are spread on the floor. Each side of the fire-place is divided into three chambers, separated by mats or skins, the innermost for husband and wife, the next for the children, and the outer for servants; when they are too poor for servants, they often find room for some reindeer. The winter dwellings are much more substantial, and are roofed with beams, on which are hung the dried cakes and reindeer flesh, while, outside, the huts are covered with bushes and earth; the door is very low and small, and can only be entered by creeping on the iiands and knees. Sometimes these winter huts are made large enough to ifaoldadozen families, separated by cur tains of skins. The windows are made from the intestines of seals, prepared and sewed together. The furniture is ery primitive; such as it is, it is made y the men, who also do the cooking nd make the boats, sleighs, skiddor or iiow-shoes, and the bows and arrow; I "v.... j .v bill Wl lilt It ,1 , . , a. t 1 I I . ... .... hod hitrir L'onn o t'n frli rii I n't rrrrn I it pertains to the mohair industrv. as !ru,ier w,l.n. u inaorscmeiit on tiie , . , . . ;1 , been known to be made almost blind bv oMn-mnttPro.

Our advices from Texas represent considerable difficulty ou the part of those who wish to enjrae in Anirora goat husbandry, in securing pure stock from Asia Minor, by reason of the pro hibition placed "on the exportation from Constantinople, by the Turkish Government, of Angora goats. This matter has a peculiar interest to the Rowing mohair industry of this coun try, and knowing that if an' one could give light on this subject it was C. V. Jenks, we addressed that gentleman an inquiry of the cause which prompts Turkey to take such a course. It may be nee'dless to say, that Mr. Jenks is the most competent authority in this country on this subject, and' the fol lowing communication will, no doubt, be read with interest: "The absolute inefficiency and in competency of the Ottoman Govern ment are well known to you. and per haps its utter treachery and faithless ness as well. These are shown in all ths in tow like Inc 4When forty years ago the French and English sought, by importations of the Angora goat, to establish the Angora husbandry on their own soil, there were no obstacles put in their way.

Turkey had lost monopoly of manufacture in industry. but blindly clung the idea she could retrieve her loss retaining the animals. I was obliged to guard, with paid police, my animals from the home flock to the "vessel to secure their safe delivery on ship board.

Some depend upon oral leases, but they are only a snare, for itVould be next to a miracle if both parties should remember alike for three or five years. What is written will tell the same story every time. Let there be a full and thorough understanding between the lessor and lessee before the documents are prepared, aud then when they are properly signed there is little danger of further trouble. The lessee should alwaya bear in mind, no matter what the lease may say, that if the lessor ob jects the lessee can not remove from the farm any dressing made upon tt during the term of the lease. The courts have decided following the English deci sions that the land shall not be de prived of the dressing made upon it.
