Lo, the Poor Indian on the Upper Klamath River
EUREKA, OAI', The splendid Isolation thot has kept the upper waters of
the Klamath river almost as unknown us the depths ef the Amazon Is to
be broken, and with Its passing the Indian with tho dugout canoe will no
longer race unobserved by curious eye
down tho long, swirling rapids of the
Humboldt county has entered Into
a partnership with the federal govern
stent whereby ten miles of road are to
be built Into the Somes Bar country
In the northeastern part of the county
With the opening of this highway a
passage will bo available Into Siskiyou
county and automobile travelers
through the Sacramento valley will
have a wonderful realm for adventures
opened to them. An almost entire lack of ronds has enabled the Klamath
river Indian to live In primeval surroundings until tho present day, and as a
result he Is an Interesting native. The wigwam on the shore, the papoose on
the shoulders of the squaw and the tribal rituals handed down for generations
still are part of his life.
Some knowledge of American history has penetrated into the wilds of
the region, one of the most bizarre convictions among the Indians being that
George Washington discovered America.

Yo, Ho! Yo, Ho! Sailing O'er a Boiling Sea, lIy Mates
T ItEEPORT. TEX. That a lnrire area of the sen lvlnc nnrth nf ttin Rnnth
American coast and southeast of the West Indies Is now a seething mass
of boiling water from which clouds of vapor rise and hinder navigation, and
the temperature of which is hot
enough to cook eggs and boll cargoes
of fish, is the remarkable story brought
here by Capt. Isaac Gorman of tho
fishing smack Isabel.
Captain Gorman declares that he
sailed for six hours through tho boil
ing seas and that during that time his
cargo of several thousand pounds of
flsh spoiled and had to bo dumped
He also oays sailors on tho Isabel
cooked eggs in tho sea as his vessel
passed through the boiling waters nnd that life on the ship became almost
unbearable becauso of tho extreme heat and the nauseating stench which
filled the air.
"We struck tho boiling wnters," says Captain Gorman, "when some COO
miles from our port. Wo had captured a largo amount of fish, and since our
ice was limited were making all speed for home.
"Early one morning I noticed clouds of smoke rising straight ahead. Tho
heat became more apparent. We thought the vapor was but a fog which wo
frequently find In that part of the sea and sailed Into it.
"As we struck the area overhung by vapor wo learned our mistake. In
stead of being an ordinary fog and an ordinary sea, we found we were sailing
through boiling water. Thinking that a sffioll area had become affected by
volcanic nctlon wo steered ahead and continued to so 6teer, believing every
moment we w.ere about to clear the seething seas until we covered almost
100 miles.
"During onr passage through this boiling area the entire cargo of the
Isabel was ruined. The waters so heated the sides and the bottom of the
vessel that the fish rotted, and the stench, added to the odor from tho sen,
mado many of the sailors sick,"
There are some straw hats that may
bo washed with safety. A shape which
does not contain glue or shellac may
be cleaned In this wny. First dust
the hat thoroughly, using brush nnd
cloth, nnd by shaking out tho freed
particles of dirt. Then makp a warm
suds of soap and water and scrub the
hat with n nnll brush. When It Is dry
rub over It the white of nn egg beat
en to n froth.
Chiffon Is washed In wnrm suds, for
which n bland sonp Is used. The-washing
will bo successful It tho chiffon Is
handled gently. After rinsing fold In
n towel nnd run through n wringer.
When partially dry It should be Ironed
on the right side with a moderately
hot Iron. Chiffon veils aro laundered
In tho some way.
To Freshen Ribbons and Silks.
Black ribbons may bo renovated by
first brushing them free of dust and
then sponging them with n mixture
of water nnd nlcohol, using one part
of alcohol to two parts of water. When
partly dry Iron under n piece of thin
muslin, or black crinoline, with n mod
erately warm Iron.
Colored ribbons of good quality will
wash If core Is taken In the piocess,
which Is tho same ns that for chiffon,
except that they are Ironed on tho
wrong side. A very fine way for fresh
ening ribbons Is to pull them ncross
escaping steam from the teakettle. A
contrivance of tin Is used for this pur
pose, which fits over the spout nnd
spreads Into a flat fan with n slit In
tho top. Bows that do not need clean
ing, but have become mussed may be
cleverly pressed with n curling Iron.
Try this with little silk bows or vel
vet bows. Make the Iron quite hot,
and wrap about it a wet cloth. Then
Insert tho Iron In the loops, opening
the curler to stretch the loop to
smoothness. When the bow Is qulto
dry brush It, If of velvet, A trimmed
hat which looks mussy may be held
over steam and bows or folds stretched
and smoothed with tho fingers.
In Wrapped Effects.
Skirts grow scanter anil longer ns
the season advances. A wrapped ef
fect around tho ankles Is particularly
smart, and some of tho satin and vol'
vet afternoon frocks have these grace
ful, wrapped skirts, the material cling
ing about the ankles nnd falling In
soft drnporles below the hips. The
daintiest sort of footwear Is required
with n wrapped and draped fttlrt of
rich material stout wnlklng boots
would utterly spoil the effect; and
winter boots for dress occasions nre
high of heel nnd light of solo; dancing
boots they might well be called though
they trip over the pavements even on
Inclement days. The tailored hack-
nbout suit usually accompanies stur
dier footwear of dark tnn calf with
sensible heels.
New Form of Trimming.
Knormous braided buttonholes with
buttons nt one end form the trimming
of some of the new dresses put out by
I'remet. On one there are three of
these, forming the trimming of tho
bodice, the topmost one being nt least
six Inches long, tho center one per
haps fivo Inches and tho one nearest
tho waistline possibly four Inches.
Four graded buttonholes of similar
construction trim tho upper part of the
front panel of tho skirt.
Distinctly Youthful in Design
He Invented the "Explosion on the Lake Front"
CHICAGO. A good many men In tho middle West and other parts of the
country will be Interested to know that "Dickie" Dean, originator of the
"explosion on the lake front" nnd the "turning around of the Masonic Temple"
swindles, is dead. As confidence man,
"ahell worker," saloonkeeper, and con
stable, Dean had a picturesque career.
He was raised In "Smoky Hollow," on
the North elde, and his early compan
ions were such characters as "Clabby"
Burns, "Tony" Allen, Eddlo Hall, Jim
Davis, and Johnny Bingham. '
The "Dickie" Dean gang, as It was
called, was tho first to swindle visitors
to Chicago by luring them to tho lake
front to see "the explosion." This Is
, how the game was worked: A mem
ber of the gang usually Dean himself would accost a stranger on the street
and ask to be directed to tho lake front. The stranger usually explained he
was unacquainted In Chicago, and Dean then would impart tho information
that he overheard some men talking about a big explosion on the lake front.
If a policeman chanced to be near by Dean would ask for directions, nnd the
unwitting stranger would accompany him to see "the explosion."
On reaching the late front, Dean nnd his victim would find three or four
men gambling. Dean would express curiosity nnd then lure the "sucker" into
the game.
It was Dean who also originated the Incredible swindle of getting ?5
from gullible persons who wanted to see the Masonic Temple "turn around."
After getting the money Dean would tell the victim ho had to go to the base
ment to give an order to the engineer. He would disappear In an alley nnd
the "sucker" would wait at the corner to see the 21-story building turn around.
Roosevelt Peak in Colorado to Be "T. R." Memorial
MONTROSE, COLO, A movement has been started here to have the govern
ment rename Sneftcls Peak, nnd In so doing honor tho memory of Theo
dore Roosevelt by calling It "Roosevelt Peak." The peak Is the most prominent
point on the magnificent skyline south,
of Montrose.
Sneffels Peak was named after one
of the little-known lieutenants In one
of the early exploration parties that
penetrated nnd mapped this section of
Colorado. It Is one of the roggedest
peaks In the stnte, among the most
formidable ns an obstacle to tho
mountain climber, and few care to
clamber up Its dangerous nnd precipi
tous sides, which nre covered with
Jagged points of rhyollto and other
metamorphlc rock. It Is 14,143 feet high. Its summit is about as big ns a
family dinner table, and from Its top one gets a most marvelous view, seeing
into mob, Arizona nnd New Mexico.
The plan Is to name It Roosevelt Peak, and have its new name recorded
in Washington by the geological survey, through the mining district around it
would still remain Sneffels district, and tho post office of Sneffels would re
main unchanged In name.
If tho United States government Will agree to changing the name of this
great peak, citizens of Montrose and Ouray will place a suitable bronze
tablet on tho summit.
It is quite according to the eternal fitness of things that the name of
Roosevelt should be given to an impressive mountuln peak or a magnificent
scenic park in the wilds. The memory df Roosevelt, naturalist, hunter, out
door man and lover of the West, deseryes well of its people. It is a fitting
expression of hero-worship.
Roosevelt National park is likely soon to be established by congress. The
, plan is to add several hundred square miles of magnificently scenic territory
to sequoia xvationni par in uauiornia, onginany creaiea 10 preserve me Dig
' trees, the oldest nnd largest living things of earth. The bill to make the tuldl
t .tlpn.nnd. change the name has been passed, by the senate. President Wilson
' oTaa'' expressed his approval by cable from Paris!
Navy Department to Bring Home Its Heroic Dead
WASHINGTON. Plans for bringing homo the bodies of all navy officers,
sailors and marines now burled on foreign soil are being worked out by
the navy department and the actual work will be undertaken within the next
few months. The wishes of relatives
will govern the return of the bodies,
and nlso the final disposition. Thos
brought home cither will be sent for
ward for private Interment or burled
In the Arlington or some other nation
nl cemetery, as relatives may decide.
The department's announcement ex
pressed a preference for bringing homo
all bodies.
The department's statement said
that where bodies were brought home
for burial In national cemeteries full
military honors would be accorded, and that, where private Interment was
desired the novy would prepny all expenses up to delivery of the casket to
relatives and thnt the war risk Insurance bureau of the bureau of the treas
ury would refund nctual burial expenses not exceeding $100 in each case upon
presentation of the claims.
Relatives of the dead of the navy and naval reserves were requested to
write the bureau of medicine and surgery ns to their wishes, and those of the
dead of tho marine corps were invited to communlcato with the commandant
of the corns.
It Is believed that many good Americans will take advantnge of the
arrangement announced by the department. The feeling of the nverage
Amerlcnn parent whose son has given his all to his country Is a combination
of pride and grief. To many there Is comfort In the public ceremonies of a
And many will wish to have the grave of tho loved one near at hand
Debutante Slouch Gone; Automobile Slump Going
TWO war casualties have not yet been recorded. They are tho death of the
debutante slouch nnd the near demise of the automobile slump. Since
women have driven ambulances, scrubbed canteen floors, fetched and carried
as tho nurses' assistants and conduce-
torcttcd the fighting mob known as the
traveling public, the physical slouch
nnd slump have passed Into oblivion.
The feminine figure has changed. It
has thinned nnd strengthened. By
'actual measurements taken In hun
dreds of cases during the past three
years by a woman whose business It
Is to clothe the female form divine, it
Is found that hips are going down and
chests arc going up.
War has done for women in
months what physicians, lecturers and well-intentioned maiden aunts have not
been nble to do In hundreds of years. Women hnvo been scolded, warned,
threatened nnd even laughed at for misshaping their poor bodies and playing
hob with their health at the behest of fashion.
Came the war and the splendid response by women to Its demands for
hard work nnd Incessant service. What has happened? Has it overtaxed or
hurt their bodies? Just the opposite. It has given them new physiques. It
has broadened tho diaphragm on an average of two to three Inches, melted
the fat from the hips as If by magic, replaced adipose with muscle on arms and
logs, flattened tho ugly "old woman's hump" at the back of the neck and
symmetrized the chest nnd bust lines.
Verily, sllmness and shapeliness are the reward of the woman who dedi
cated herself, body and soul, to war work. The canteenctte has accomplished
without realizing It results for which formerly she spent large wads of hus
band's gold at health studios nnd reducing parlors, not to mention gyms and
Turkish baths. In many cases she has actually grown taller from reaching
nnd bending, and the straight, even swaybacked, carriage that comes from
toting trays of fried eggs, coffee and custard pie.
War has taught women to work. They will never ' y Idleness again,
Nor will they ever return to unsanitary, uncomfortable . ..n.sightly fashions,

(Oopjrlcbt, 1018, Western Newnpaper t'nlon.)
Here Is a sprightly dress of wool,
which may be made of any of the soft
nnd substantial weaves that hong
gracefully. It Is cut on tho simplest
lines, plain as to skirt and waist, with
a meagerness of trimmings that
amounts to severity, but Is popular
with young people. It boasts n smnll
turn-over collar, bordered with n nnr
row brnld and tho sleeves nre Indulged
In a band of the snmo brnld and four
small buttons at the wrist. It will be
noticed that the skirt Is longer than
for some seasons, nlmost covering the
ankles. This Is n characteristic of
spring styles In frocks.
The special pride and glory of this
unpretentious but smart bit of design
ing for youthful wearers, is the npron
at tho front. This Is made of one of
those new fabrics that nre giving
manufacturers of staple g6ods a bad
qunrter-hour. It looks like Jersey nnd
might bo successfully made of that fa
vored fabric, but It Is rnoro likely to
bo trlcolette, or n knitted weave of
some sort. Just a straight piece of
one of these supple materials Is bor
dered with n wide band of georgette
at tho bottom and outlined with a slm
plo braided pattern. A wide girdle of
the snmo material across the back and
two narrow bands of folded georgette
across the front, with n button on the
ends of each, complete a decoration
that makes tho. frock. The body of
the dress Is In navy bluo nnd the
apron in belga with bluo trimming.
An Irreproachable 'spring hat of
navy blue llsero Is gay with n wreath
of blossoms and n rose-colored fnclng.
The bosom of the young person so
fnultlcssly dressed Is entitled to swell
with pride and Joy.
Ribbon Workbag.
A good workbag can be made from
two yards of Dresden rlbhon six nnd
one-half Inches wide nnd one em
broidery hoop. Cut two rounds of
c,rdbonrd, the size ot the hoop for
the bottoms of the "double-decker"
bag, pad with sheet cotton and cover
with the ribbon. Divide the remaining
ribbon In halves and senm up both
pieces. Then sew one to n cardboard
round and fasten nt the top of the out
side rim of the embroidery hoop. Make
the top part of the bag In the same
way, save that the cardboard bottom
Is to be sewed to tho Inside, of the
embroidery ring, which has been cov
ered by tbo silk ribbon.
Pin Saving Help.
A macnet on a tape Is excellent to
keep In the sewing room, or to use
wucrever sewing is uone, as by this
means stray needles may be picked
up that otherwise might not be found
until they did some damagn.
Form Clothes for Men; Sprightly, Inspirational
FORM clothes will be the vogue during the present year. So decrees the
National Association of Merchant Tailors. All delegates emphasize the
form-fitting trend of the times. Somo of them go so far as to suggest that
mature gentlemen of a plump, If not
corpulent, tendency will need "stays"
to get away with the newest things In
masculine adornment.
According to the terms of "the
trade masculine styles for the ensuing
twelve months are to be sprightly
without consplcuousness; dashing
without verging on extremes ; youthful
in temperament and inspirational. In
place of the Inevitable summer flnn
ncls of the past men will wenr recrea
tional raiment, fashioned of silk, fine
line, and other delicate fabrics. Even tho prosaic sack suit of business Is
to have a "swing" Imparted to It by a high waistline and a long vent back.
But It is in sporty toggery that tho styles are going to go the limit. Coats
will be strapped and tabbed and plaited. Riding coats are to have flaring
skirts, a back vent running to the high waistline, diagonal Jetted pockets, and
upon both sides with an additional outside pocket, neatly flapped, to carry
So there Is every opportunity for the shapely tenderfoot to go the limit
this year by the seashore and In the mountains In the way of fearful and won
derful costumes ; this should be a glad season for him.
Out In the Rockies the nntlves swear that some of tho outfits adorning
the tourist from the East and the middle West actually make the grim
granite peaks "jjiake with mlrtb. This is probably an exaggeration, but vet

No Great Rush of Foreign Laborers to Europe
FEARS of employers that a great horde of foreign residents of this country
would race back to Europe with the signing of the nrmistice have not only
failed to materialize, figures of tho local bureau of the Immigration department
show, but such anxiety as Is being
displayed to leave the shores of tho
0. S. A. does not indicate that any
great rush may be expected.
Only 2,374 applications for per
mits to go back to European countries
have been received from aliens by the
immigration department hore since the
armistice was signed. Of this number
more than one-half of thoso applying
either did not obtain permits or did
not return to take them up.
Of those applying, about 2,000 wera
Italians, the remainder being scattered among natives of Scandinavian conn
tries and of Greece and Groat Britain. No permits are granted to enemy aliens.
"The applications for permits nre but a mere drop In the bucket," says
H. K. Lnndls, Immigration agent in charge. "After the armistice the appllca
tlons for permits were rather heavy, but they have dwindled day by day.
"One reason, perhaps, is the exceptional difficulty In obtaining ship trans
portation. As for as I can see, business in this section has no need to worry
for fear of a shortage in unskilled labor due to an outflow of foreigners back
to their native countries."
LESSON TEXT-Joshua 1:1-9.
GOLDEN TEXT Be strong and of a
good courage, Joshua 1:9.
1:10-3:17: 6:13-15.
PRIMARY TOPIC A story ot a brave
leader. Memory Verse Joshua 1:6.
JUNIOR TOPIC-Follow the right lead
er. Memory Verse Deut. 1:7, 8.
The book of Joshua Is a history or
the conquest of the promised land nnd
Its apportionment nmong the tribes
of Israel. It takes Its name from Its
principal character Joshua. During
the wilderness Journey he was Moses'
minister, nnd captain of his army.
When Moses was denied the privilege
of going over the Jordan, Joshua was
appointed to the leadership of Israel.
Being so long faithful ns a servant,
he Is now qualified to rule. Only
those who hnve themselves learned to
obey are fit to rule. Moses, the repre
sentative of the law, brought Israel to
the borders of Canaan. Joshua was
the man chosen to lead the people Into
the place of rest. The name "Joshua"
has the same derivation ns the name
"Jesus." The law (Moses) was our
schoolmaster to bring us to Christ;
but Christ (our Joshua) has given us
victory nnd rest.
I. Joshua's Call (1:1.2).
Moses, God's servant, Is dead, but
God's work must go on. He continues
his work by calling others to take It
up, though he buries his workers.
Joshua, no lubt, was sorrowful over
the loss of his master, but there Is no .
time for mourning. The best way to
cure our griefs and sorrows Is to take
up courageously the burdens and re-:
sponslbllities which our leaders have
laid down.
II. God Renews His Promise of tli
Land to Israel (1:3. 4).
The promise had been made to
Abraham, and renewed to Isaac,
Jacob and Moses. It Is now renewed
to Israel when they are about to en
ter upon its possession. The borders
of the land were quite large (v. 4)
"from the wilderness and this Leb
nnon, even unto-the great river, the
river Euphrates, all the land of tho
Hlttltes, and unto the great sen to
ward the going down of the sun, shall
be your coast." The nearest It was
ever possessed was during the reigns
of David and Solomon, though not then
fully realized. This country still be
longs to the Jews, and In God's own
time they shall possess It. Their get
ting possession of this land was due
entirely to themselves. God promised
them, that wherever their feet set
upon the land It was theirs. If they
failed to secure possession It was be
cause they failed to claim It. We
would all enjoy larger blessings if
we would claim them.
III. God's Presence Promised to
Joshua (1:5).
Joshua was entering upon a peril
ous and difficult enterprise, but tho
Lord said ns he was with Moses so
would he be with him. The difficul
ties before him were:
1. The Jordan river (v. 2). It was
now nt its flood (3:15), making It Im
possible for armies to cross.
2. In the land the people were liv
ing In walled cities. Notwithstanding
this, God's help Insured success. (1)
"I will not fall thee nor forsake thee."
(2) "There shall not any man be nble
to stnnd before thee." (3) "As I
v..s with Moses, so I will be with
IV. Conditions of Blessings in the.
Land (1:0-0).
1. "Be strong nnd of n good courage""
(v. C). Ills mission was to go In an
divide the land among the tribes for
an Inheritance. God could not bles
him If he should play the coward.
2. Unwnverlng obedience to th
word of God (v. 7). In n land of
Idolatry It requires much courage to
obey tho true God. Tho prosperity
and good success was conditioned
upon unswerving obedience to God'a
commands. In all his work he must
conform his life to tho law of God,
To pass from tho pnth outlined there
in would bring disaster nnd ruin. In
order to accomplish this the law of
the Lord must constantly be In his
mouth. He was to meditate therein
day and night. If we nre to prosper
In our Christian experience thero
must be that regular and reverent
.study of God's Word. Joshua ren
ders prompt obedience. He did not
stop to cavil, but at once gave orders
for the march. God made the plan
and gave tl directions. His respon
sibility wns to go forward without
doubting, taking possession of the inheritance.
A work thnt requires no sacrifice
does not count for much in fulfilling
God's plans. But what Is commonly
called sacrifice is the best, happiest
use of one's self and one's resources
the best Investment of time, strength,
and means. Ho who makes no such
sacrifice Is most to be pitied. He is a
heathen because bo knows nothing of
God. Samuel Chapman Armstrong,
Thy Friend.
Moke not thy friend too cheap tc
thee, nor thyself to thy friend. Fallen.
