Del Adelphia, now a business man
and a member of the town council of
Tukwila, lays claim to having been
the first person to carry the "black
art" across the Arctic circle.
Adelphia since early manhood, and
until only recently, has followed the
vocation of magician, and his wander
ings as such with various theatrical
and vaudeville companies have taken
him over the United States several
times and into many foreign coun
tries. In 1901 ii. md his own com
pany toured Alaska and northern
British Columbia, giving performances
at every station
"I shall never forget," said Adelphia
in describing his northern trip to a
group of friends recently, "the time
I performed before Chief Isaacs and
a bunch of his subjects at Moosehide,
a typical northern Indian village a
few days before Christmas, 1901. I
had given a performance the day be
fore at Dawson, and an acquaintance
I had made there suggested that we
could have some rare sport by invad
the Moosehide with magic.
"Accordingly, accompanied by my
new friend, I drove over there the
next day in a aled. The wonderment
of the Siwashes was first excited
when two mysterious-looking trunks
were unloaded from the sled in front
of the chief's hut. A few words to the
chief by my friend put us in good
with him and he invited us inside
with our trunks, summoned the sav
ages from the outside and introduced
me In his crude way as the white
"I had things all my own way, and
during the performance I was able to
resurrect old tricks that I had had to
drop from my repertoire years ago be
cause they had become so common
that a white audience would laugh
me down should. I have the nerve to
exhibit them in this day and age.
"I started off with the old thread
bare stunts, such as palming cards,
turning water into wine, etc., and it
was not many minutes until I was
looked upon by my ignorant audience
aa a veritable devil.
"What did those poor children of
nature know about the double com
partment pistol, the mysterious egg
basket, the loaded hat or the traps in
the tables? A chair to them was a
chair, nothing more. The old chief
was nonplussed when, after I had
manipulated the egg bag for a minute,
he asked to be allowed to feel inside
it, and he found it was empty. Again
he felt and It was full of eggs, eggs
were everywhere on the floor, under
the table, in the folds of his garments,
and he was given a great laugh when
I even plucked a couple from his
mouth. I guess he is still trying to
figure out whence they came and
where they disappeared.
"The abject simplicity of the na
tives was forcibly shown when I
grabbed one of the youngsters by the
nose and told him to blow through
that organ. He did, and I told him
sharply to 'blow hard.' Thia he did
as I commanded, and I thought he and
all the rest would drop dead when a
whole pack of playing cards shot out
apparently from his nostrils and flut
tered to the ground. This trick was
repeated by request upon another
young native and another deck of
cards was blown from a Siwash nasal
appendage and scrambled for by the
yBunsters. I looked out of the door
of the hut a few minutes later to see
three or four of the little fellows out
side holding each other's noses and
blowing for dear life in an effort to
produce more pasteboards.
"My potato trick, though, brought
the show to a speedy climax. If I
hadn't stopped when I did I'd have
been bankrupt. I asked old Isaacs if
he had a potato. The chief ordered
his squaw to bring one, which she
did. I then called for a knife, and
with the knife I started to cut the
potato in halves. The savages crowd
ed round me to watch developments
and were amazed when the knife
struck something hard In the center
of the tuber. I could cut no further,
but finally worked around the obstruc
tion, and, when the potato was di
vided, there was a bright new half
dollar. I tossed the coin outside and
yo should have seen the scramble
"I didn't have to ask for a second
potato; the trick was repeated and an
other half dollar given the Indians as
a souvenir. A third time I was pre
vailed upon by wondering hosts to
open a potato, but by this time every
buck, klootchman and papoose in the
crowd was armed with a potato and
clamoring to have it opened. I saw
my finish looming up and not very far
ahead. I saw the season's profits
dwindling and it did not require a
great stretch of imagination to pic
ture a certain long-haired wizard
stranded in the far and frozen north-
land, mushing his way out to civillza
tion with gaunt famine dogging his
" 'Let's duck beat it!' I whispered
to my white companion, and while I
diverted the attention of the scram
bling and insistent aborigines, my pal
hustled our kits of paraphernalia to
the dog sled and at the psychological
moment I made a dash for liberty and
we were off.
"I heard since that our visit was
followed by a potato famine in Moose
hide, for no sooner had we left the
village than the inhabitants in their
mad quest for silver half dollars, ran
sacked the camps for potatoes and
cut them into bits, cursing their luck
and the 'white devil' for their disap-

EXPECT A GOOD LAMB CROP.
Indications Point to a Much Larger
Number of Lambs in the West
Than Last Year.
All indications and Information
point to a full lamb crop this year,
says Breeders' Gazette. Lambing in
Idaho has been on an unprecedentedly
large scale. Some bad weather was
encountered, notably in Wyoming and
Utah, but feed was available and ewes
are generally in condition to raise
their lambs. Idaho, whence comes the
bulk of the mutton lamb supply, will
probably raise more than last year.
Taking the west as a whole, it will be
more than a normal crop owing to pre

Give Pigs Salt and Ashes.
By experienced breeders it is
deemed advisable, to keep salt and
ashes where pigs can have ready ac
cess to them.
After pigs begin to eat grain they
will visit the salt and ashes after
every feed or oftener. It has been
found profitable to keep he mixture
in a self-feeder, in which a bucket
ful of the mixture can be kept dry
and from which the pigs can get it
from an opening at the bottom.
By this arrangement there is a sav
ing of labor and the pigs never get
so hungry for it as to eat too much,
as is the case when salt and ashes
are given only occasionally.
The wisdom of this practice has
been corroborated by numerous very
satisfactory tests. Pigs fed corn meal
with salt and water get very fat in a
short time, but soon fall to Improve.
Pigs fed corn meal, hardwood ashes,
salt and water do better and make
better growth of bone. Pigs having
ashes make better bone and better

Run for the Pigs.
No plan of feeding Is complete with
out the daily run of the pigs and
brood sows on pasture in summer, yet
even with he grazing and the variety
of grain, with corn as the chief ra

larly fed salt and ashes with charcoal
make better growth of frame and are
less troubled with worms.

TIME. Paul began h.s third journey
probably in A. D. 53. and it lasted three
years. 53-56. or 57.
PLACE. Paul onded his second Jour
ney by going to Jerusalem, and thence to
Antioch. From there he went through
Asia Minor, ending at Ephesus, tre capi
tal of the Roman province of Asia.
Suggestion and Practical Thought
How Paul Built Up the Religious
Life of Ephesus.
Paul Enters Upon His Missionary
Journey, and Strengthens the Older
Churches. Acts 18:22-23. When Paul
had completed his second missionary
journey he went up to Jerusalem to
pay his respects to the mother church
there, and doubtless, as at other times,
he told the wondrous story of the
work of God in bringing so many Gen
tiles into the kingdom. Here he would
remain long enough to complete his
vow, the apostle to the Gentiles in lov
ing accord with the mother church.
Then he went down to the home
church which had sent him forth.
Here he was always welcome. Here
he told the story of his missionary ad
ventures, and the fruits of his labors.
This is probably the last time Paul
was able to visit Antioch. It is prob
able that while here Paul wrote the
Epistle to the Galatins, on receiving
the report of Timothy concerning the
churches in that region, and not long
afterward he himself went through
the region of Galatia and Phrygia in
order, strengthening the churches, for
there was great need. (Gal. 1:6 12;
Ephesus, which Paul made his head
quarters for nearly three years of mis
sionary work, was not only the cap
ital of the province, but was the city
of the greatest importaince in all Asia
Minor, and principal emporium of
trade in the east.
Paul Finds an Undeveloped Church
of Ephesus, and Brings Them Into the
Fulness of the Gospel Light Acts
IS: 24 19:7. The Eloquent Apollos.
When Paul left Corinth at the close
of his second Journey, his friends
Aquila and Priscilla went with him
as far as Ephesus. Before Paul ta
tered upon his longer work at Ephesus
there came a Christian Jew of great
eloquence (v. 25) "knowing only the
baptism of John; the gospel of repen
tance and forgiveness, and Christian
morals, and of Jesus who proclaimed
the kingdom of heaven at hand, and
worked many miracles of love, and
died on the cross, the story which was
told in the earlier gospels.
These things Priscilla and Aquila
expounded to him. Then he went to
Greece (v. 27) and "helped them much
which had believed through grace."
Of this Paul once speaks in his letter
to Corinth, "I planted, Apollos watered
God gave the increase." (1 Cor. 3:6).
Paul's Preaching and Teaching.
Vs. 3-10. First. In the Jewish syna
gogue. Three months. To Jews. As
usual, Paul began with the Jews who
were best prepared to receive the
Gospel. "And spake boldly." It re
quired no little courage to take the
unpopular side, which had so often
brought him into trouble.
Second. In the school of Tyrannus.
Two years. To Gentiles. "Disputing,"
discouraging, arguing, "daily" and not
merely on the Sabbath, "in the school
of one Tyrannus." Nothing is known
positively about this man.
"Continued . . . two years," In
addition to the three months in the
synagogue. "All they which dwelt in
Asia," the Roman province of Asia, of
which Ephesus was the capital.
"Heard the word." Paul had with him
a number of helpers, as Timothy,
Erastus, Titus, etc.
Two Kinds of Testimonials to the
Power and Value of the Gospel. Vs.
11-22. In addition to the holy conduct
and noble spirit exhibited in the or
dinary daily life there were two out
ward and visible testimonies to the
truth and power of the Gospel. First.
Miracles of healing and help. "God
wrought special miracles." "By the
hands of" the instrumentality of
"Paul." In Ephesus, the center of
magic and witchcraft, special power
was given Paul to work miracles that
conquered them in their own strong
hold. He actually did what the
sorcerers pretended to do.
Self-denial for the Cause of Christ.
Doing right at great cost. "Many that
believed came, and confessed" that
they had been using magical prac
tices, but now, realizing that they
were wrong, "shewed their deeds" by
publicly confessing and renouncing
all such heathen practices, by which
doubtless they had been making
"Many of them," referring to those
who had been magicians previous to
their conversion, "which used curious
arts," such as magic, incantations,
sleight of hand, charms, secret knowl
edge of chemistry, hypnotism. Jug
glery, and everything by which they
had deceived the people.
These men and women were In the
habit of carrying about on their per
sons as charms or amulets to shield
them from danger and from harm, or
to procure them good fortune In their
undertakings. We read how Croesus,
when on his funeral pile, repeated
these "Epheslan spells."
