"Before the white men came re were aim," said a Chippewa friend. These people look back npun their past as upon a lost paradise, iu which there were happiness and innocence. They repudi ate mo descriptions or them written by wniio nutorians as the work cf enemies, seeking to justify cruelties and wroncrs. "Our fathers always did what was right, and they punished bad men. They were Kind and true to their friends and terrible only to their enemies. We were great warriors, and we fought for our own a long time. It was not the white men a arms, but their vices, which ruined us." "What makes yon think that the old times were 60 much better? Yon have good laws, no wars, and the government will not let yon go hungry. Is not this better than the old precarious and dan gerous way of living:" "We did not go hungry. We had more than we wanted. You can sto for your self what we hud from what is left after so much destruction. Thero was no end to the deer, moose, caribou, beaver,x lynx and all tho smaller fur bearers, and as for the fish, you said there was no f nn catching them when you came, they were too plenty trout, bass, pike, pick erel, sturgeon the waters swarmed With them. Then look at the wild rice, nuts, blueberries, wild plums oceans of them. And then we hud cornfields, and for smoking the kinuikiuic. The plains were black with bnflala We had no hard work to da What we did was manly sport, while it provided us with food and clothing. And then we were free, the freest people in the world, with a whole continent in which to enjoy it. We are not now what wo wero. Our peoplo have become drunkards, beggars and coward?. Tho white man has de stroyed as, along with everything else. I see that yon have among your photo graphs tho picture of a Chippewa grave. That is the gravo of tho last of the Five Brothers, great warriors. Yon may say that is the grave of tho last of the Chip powas, because whnt were left after the Seven Brothers and the Five Brothers were no longer true specimens of our great and noble people. Tho Seven Brothers were Tecumseh's best men. They were known all over the Mississip pi valley, and the Five Brothers, who came after them, were as good. They adopted me when my father died. The last one died 30 years ago, a very old man." ' ' I supposo you think the Seven Broth ers made a president of the United States because he beat them at Tippeca noe?" "Yes, they made two, and the Chero kees made two. The white men thought it was a great thing when, four or five to ouo, they conld whip an Indian, and they in aiio h.-rvrs. ci those who did it. That is what taXitTTtl'i ' ' man thought of tho Indian.'' "What about yonr sign language and picture writing?" "That is nearly forgotten. Only a few know anything abont it, and they aro old men. The sign language was what deaf and dumb peoplo have, only it was simplor, and all the tribes understood it. For example, if yon came a stranger to a tepee of a village, a stamp of the foot on the ground meant that yon wore welcome two or three stamps, that you wero very welcome. Hunting signals wero made with tho hands. Four fingers and the thumb down meant a bear with tho thnnib np a deer. If a lynx or other climber, climbing signs. If the animal wero running, the hand with fingers down m ado bounding motions. If a man, tho forefinger was held up. If the mau wero hiding, the finger was closed down to the band. Fictnre writ ing was done on bark and was a map with various signs and animals here and there upon it. A circle meant a yell by which tho reader was instructed to call when he reached a certain point. " "Yon had a freemasonry for your fam ilies, did yon not?" "Yes, J. can recognize a relative, thongh I never met him before. The use for thia has died out, bnt we cannot givo it to any one not entitled to it." "What was your totem?" "Tho alligator. Tho alligator can live in tho water and on the land. Ho lives to be very old. It means long lifo and good luck iu hunting and lifhing. It was the totem of the Five Brothers, and they gave it to me when they adopted me." Jly friend thinks that the Indians would have developed civilization by this time if they had been let alone. They wero already cultivators of the soil and were no longer nomadic. One clement of their success in war was their endurance and speed cn foot. When he was a youth, lie led a dog team on the enow 05 miles in one day. He walked from the St. Croix to Buy field, t'3 miles, in 28 hours, and this was not exceptional among them. The sud denness of attack and swiftness in re treat rendered tbeni tho most difficult native people ever conquered. Bnt their paradise is gone. Chicago Interior. A Chinasaan'a Ideal Wife. The Chinamen of Australia, when they take a notion to marry, write to a matrimonial agent in Hongkong some thing as follows : "I want a wife. She must be a maiden, under 20 years of age, and must not have left her father's house. She must also have never read a book, and her eyelashes must be half an inch iu length. Her teeth most be as sparkling as the pearls of Ceylon. Her breath must ""be like unto the scents of the magnificent odorous groves of Java, . and her attire must be from the silken weaves of Ka-la-Ching, which are on the banks of the greatest river in the woeld the overflowing Yaug-tse-Ki- I BLOOD SPOT IN ITS PULP. The "Mike Apple Thought to Commem orate a M order of Loair Ago, A peculiar species cf frait is the Mike apple. It has a fair skin, an 4-ellent flavor and is extensively prop agated in the vicinity of Norwich, Conn. Each individual arplo exhibits some where in its pulp a red speck, like a tin go of fresh blood, and thereby hangs a strange legend. The apple obtains its name from Mi cali Rood, a fanner who lived npon the outlauds of the Connecticut town in the eighteenth ceutnry. Tho sou of Thomas Rood, one of Norwich's early settlers, Micah tilled hiu fertile acres with all tho zest of youthful ambition. Bst of a sudden his habits changed. Ho grew idlo, restless and intemperate. Ho lost all interest in both work and worship. Eis cattlo were neglected and his neighbors shunned. Some attributed tho change to witchcraft. Others hinted at insanity. , Winter wore away, apriug returned, and tho orchard of Micah Rood burst into blossom. On one tree, it was then observed, tho flowers had turned from white to red. The superstitious neigh bors woudered.especially as Rood seemed drawn to tnis tree by some resistless fascination. August came and the red blossoms developed into fruit. When the large yellow apples fell from the tranches, each one was fonud to con tain a well defined globule, known thereafter as "the drop of blood. " . The freak of the apple tree deepened the mystery of Micah 's behavior. 'Con jecture followed surmise, and soon it was remembered that during tho pre vious fall a foreign peddler bad passed through Norwich and had spent tho night at Micah Rood's. Ho had never been seen again. Some cuo suggested that tho young farmer had mnrdered him for his money and buried tho body Quder the applo tree. Search was mado for tho bodyof the stranger, but in vain. Nor was any trace of his stock fonnd among the possessions of tho unhappy Micuh. If a loud of crime rested npon tho conscience of the suspected farmer, it never forced a confession from his lips. His farm drifted gradually to decay, and, too broken down to reclaim it, he wander ed abont town, disordered iu mind and body. Ho died in 1728, but while the blood spotted applo coutiunc3 to glow his name and history will bo perpetuated. New York Herald. LI HUNG CHANG CARRIED HER. Chlna'a Viceroy Took Literally on Invita tion to Escort a Lady. Speaking of the first meeting of Li Hung Chang and John W. Foster, on which occasion the Chinese viceroy en tertained a woman at dinner for tho first time in the person of Mrs. Foster, tho Washington Capital vouches for the following story, which is one of the best illustrations of true oriental cour tesy, combined with the peculiar serious ness and matter of factness of tho Chi nese mind, ever related: When she was introduced to the vice roy, Mrs. Foster wondered hew sho was to be taken into tho banquet room. Some time before, it 6eenis, Li Hung Chang had been guest of honor at a din ner given by the Russian embassador, and being asked to take tho embassador's wife to tho dining room, piocecded to comply with a literalness which aston ished all the guests. Tho viceroy is a giant in stature, and the embassador's wife being a small woman, he had no difficulty in picking her up bodily and carrying her to tho table. Mrs. Foster did not yearn for Bueh honor and called upon her husband's diplomacy to arrange that sho should bo escorted in a less vigorous manner.. Mr. Foster's tact was eqnal to tho occasion, and When tho doors were thrown oiien Li Hnng Chang led tho way, and Mrs. Foster followed him. Compcnsnted. The epigrams of Voltaire, tho French philosopher, were often ruthlessly sar castic and severe. Ho could, however, exercise tact and gentleness, and as is usually the caso with brilliant persons those qualities became him wonderfully well. Ho met the famous statesman Tnrgot and.cordially inquired ubout his health. "It is as yon see," replied Tnrgot, "I am tormented with gout lean hard ly tlrag my feet about. " "You remind mo of tho statue of Nebuchadnezzar, M. Tnrgot." "Yes," assented tho invalid sadly. "you ore right, poet, " tho statue hud feet of clay." "And a head of gold," cried Voltaire warmly, "remember that, a head of gold." Yon th's Companion. Kldlnz Astride.

A- Beqoest Blade by a long Forgotten Millionaire Once n Week the UcbcDcI Ties Are Given Loaves of Bread Some of the Keclplents Oaee Wealthy. Ono of the most interesting charities In operation in this city, and ono which Is' probably less known than any oth er, is that which 13 designated in tho register cf Trinity church as "the Leake dole cf bread. " Since 1793 (hia practical benefaction has been in constant operation, and it wonld bo exceedingly difficult to com pute tho great amount of good it has dono and the number of hungry persons it" has fed. The dole is a bequest by John Leake, a long forgotten million aire and philanthropist, who, with John Watts, founded the well known Leake and Watts Orphan Honse, which is still ia exist enco in this city. Tho portion of his will in which the bequest is made reads as follows : "I hereby give and bequeath unto tho rector and inhabitants of the Protestant Episcopal church of the state of New York 1,000, put out at interest, to lie laid out in the annual inconio in six penny wheaten loaves of bread and dis tributed on every Sabbath morning, after divino service, to such poor as shall appear most deserving." This wish has been faithfully carried out with ono exception. Tho regular communicants of tho church will no donbt wonder, for not inore perhaps than 100 of them have ever noticed tho dispensation of "sixpenny wheaten loaves of bread" after the morning service. Nearly 40 years ngo, when tiro dis tributing station was transferred from Trinity church to tho shadow of old St. John's at 46 Vaiick street, it was deemed wise to c hange the weekly day of distribution from Sunday to Satur day and thus obviate tho publicity and lessen the pain to the pride of the recip ients, for sonio cf them were, and even now arc, not only communicants of the church, but peoplo who at ono time had been among the mast wealthy of the congregation. Every Saturday morning between 7 and 8 o'clock there are deliv ered into a recess of the gaunt ecclesi astical structure 07 loaves of wholesome fresh bread of the kind known as "homo made," each loaf being worth about 10 cents, w lino not exactly "sixjienny loaves, " they aro as near that price as is possiblo to obtain, and no one has yet ventured an attempt to break the will owing to this slight divergency or tho fact of tho change of rlato of distri bution. The loaves aro piled upon a long set tee in tho vestibule, where those lucky enough to bo considered as "appearing to be tho most deserving" cither call or send for them. There aro at present just 18 of these pensioners, and others are constantly waiting to tako the places of those whom death has claimed. The loaves aro distributed in varying num bers, some persons being entitled to four, while others receive only two, this being rcgnla'.ed by the size of tho family. The leaves aro distributed without ostentation, and although ono of tho official lepreseutatives of the church is present he is lax in the amount of vigilance displayed, allowing the pensioners to enter the vestry and help themselves to their allotted share, and it is a matter of record that not once has any one made the mistake of taking an extra loaf. Shortly before 8 o'clock every Satur day tho 18 chosen as deserving benefi ciaries or their messengers begin to ap pear. TJjo first one to call yesterday morning was an impoverished looking woman bowed with age, who, the sex ton said, has been making the same weekly trip for nearly SO years. While thin and emaciated she still bore the impress of refinement, and her dress, although threadbare, was remarkably clean and neat. With a slight inclination of tho head she wished tho sexton "Good morning, " and quietly dropped two loaves of bread in the basket she carried, after first carefully wrapping them in a piece of newspaper. As she slowly walked down the stone paved yard toward the gate she staggered under her load, and her evident refinement led The Sun reporter to ask who sho was. "She is one of our oldest pensioners," replied the sexton, "and has for over iiO years never missed a Saturday, rain or shine, i-he was ence ono of tho wealth iest of New Y'ork's women residents, but nn ungrateful son, after gambling away her fortune, left her destitute, and has never been heard from since. It is one of the pathetic stories most of tbeso people could tell. In direct opposition to this case was that of a gray haired Degress, who, al though mora than SO years old, is still quite spry, and entered tho vestibule with a "Moruin, massa," in a manner which indicated that the very probably is a manumitted slave. After a slight interchange of conversation she shuffled away, apparently happy. One noticeable peculiarity was the fact that thero were no men. The bread was claimed cither by verv old and decrepit women or by yonng children ! who invariably staggered under tho ! load. Of tho children who called, not one wore a hat, and when the sexton was asked for an explanation of this he replied that, although he had noticed it, he was unable to give any reason "un less," he adekd, "they haven't any."

He Frightened the Croak. . It was while Tom Byrnes was super intendent of police that one day a mid dle aged man walked into a popular Greenwich street restaurant and called for a broiled beefsteak. Men do that ev ery day, bnt this particular man woro long hair, which was brushed behind his cars, and had a smooth face, save a l's'.lo tnft of chin whisker. He was drv od in a gray suit and carried a car pet satchel. Thero was no question that the man was from tho "rooral destrict," for ono could almost see the hayseed in his un shorn locks, and his pockets wero appar ently bulging with corn hnsks. Tho stranger had no more than seated him self when a well dressed, smart looking yocng man entered and took a seat at the same table. Ho also ordered a steak. Ia due time they were served. The countryman went to work industriously and was soon enjoying his meal Not so his vis-a-vis. Tho young man com plained that his meat was tough tough as eole leather. "How's yours, stranger?" ho asked. "Mine's all right," was the reply, with a nasal twang. Bnt try as he would the young fellow couldn't induce the other to talk with him. Filially ho said it was a shame to serve such a steak.- He declared ho be lieved the cook had wiped the floor with it, it was so full of grit; Tho stranger looked up, and fixing a piercing gray eye on tho young man quietly but hignificautly remarked : "If Byrnes knew yon were down here, yon wonld bo eating worso steak than that." Tho young fellow turned palo and dropped his jaw, also his knife and fork. Hia appeiite seemed to have suddenly left him. Ho called for his check, paid it and left the restaurant in a hurry.

Of Count Ito, tho distinguished Japa neso rtatesmaurSir Edwin Arnold gives this interesting incident : "I sat at table with tho ex-premier and his wife and children. The countess, quiet, gentle, motherly and wearing spectacles, carv- ln? mo mi una run tnmn witii mih matronly serenity, had yet a history of romance and devotion which could make tho wildest fictionist's fortune. "Long ago iu those dark and bloody days when tho minister was her lover and a fugitive fzoni his enemies there cauio a timo when they bad tracked him to her honse and had chosen a bond of SoGhis to assassinato him. Tho noise of their clogs and the rattling of their scabbards wero heard, and the count, trapped like a stag in his mountain plcasance, drew his Bizen blade and prepared to die as a Japanese lord should amid a circle of dead foes. But while he murmured 'Saganorel and knitted his fingers around the shark skin hilt of his sword that brave lady whoso guest I wns whispered: 'Do not die. There is hope still Upon whieh she removed the liibachi, or firebox, over which they were sitting, and lifting up the matting aud planks beneath induced her lover to conceal himself in tho hollow space which exists under the floor of all Jap anese homes. Tho murderers broko into tho room, a ferocious band, just as the firebox had been replaced, and the countess had assumed a position of non chalance. "They demanded their victim, and when she protested against their intru sion and bade them search . if they wanted iSo, the wretches dragged her around the apartment by her long, beautiful black hair, now touched with silver, and grievously maltreated her, bnt could not shake her resolute fidelity. Thanks to this, Connt Ito, the hero of many another strange adventure, es caped from the chief peril of his career aud has lived to givo his country a new constitution and to bo ono of tho fore most and best respected statesmen of modern Japan. " Brooch and Chatelaine. Tho day of the brooch and chatelaine for watches is over. The watch chain again assorts itself. Watches no longer swing from enameled flowers or jew eled bars. Instead they are hidden away in a watch pocket, and a black eilk cord or a narrow ribbon is their main support Old fashioned broad gold watch chains are not yet the vogue, but as time goes on they probably will be. At present silk cords in black and dark shades are considered the proper thing. Summer girls, however, are substitut ing for the Hold Watch Chain n Iiarrnn satin libbcu which matches in tolor the gown with which it is worn.
