THE EAGLE: WEDNESDAY, MAY 1, 1895.
13 Indian problem, based on his long ox: t'.ict with the reel nnr. Hebcliovcs that wio Indiun can be mudo a self-supporting and useful citizen, and all that fa needed in to furnish him a sufficient in centivo t; work for a living, the same as hit) nalo-i'a jc brother. "During the war just ended," said he to a writer for the Wellington Post, "I had the Indians tit work on a big irri gating canal, of whi ;h noven miles have been completed. They made as good laborers as I cv-:t saw and worked cheerfully for one dollar per day. In addition tothat they mined enough grain for the reservation and to supply the neighboring military post, having a surplus besides to nail. They hauled every pound of freight from the railway terminus to the agency, a distance of one hundred and fifi y miles. The men who have been living off the Indians by supplying all their needs for the past quarter of a century hate to see them beginning to get on a self-supporting bads, for then there will be no more :.io:icy to bo made; out of them. For Í hat reason every obstacle is thrown in the way and all sorts of rrJsrcprosenta tions made by these parties, v.mo dread to sec their occupation gone. During all ury experience ia the Wc.it I have never known an administration thai has dealt with the Indians in as clean and conscientious a way as tho present. The secretary of tho interior has, wuhout any partisan bias, done in every in stance h3 best to promote the interests of the tribes and the government, and, ' from my own observation, I think that j he has thus far been very successful." Flvo Millions for n Husbnnd. When Lady Margaret Grosvenor, third surviving daughter of the duke of Westminster, gave her hand to Trinco Adolphus of Tcck, the other day, says tho Philadelphia Times, her father gave with it a marriage portion of five mil lion dollars. Tho bride, the. daughter oí probably tho richest man in tho work1., is rather a good-looking girl whose per sonality, to say nothing of such a fabu lous dot, would seem to entitle her to something better in tho way of a hue-1 kind than the impecunious young lan- cor whoso name she now bears. The ! prince is an officer in the seventeenth ! lan jers, the full uniform of which regi ment ho woro when married. The wedding presents numbered about five hundred, and included enough jewelry to start a store. The newly wedded pair will in future be known as "their sereno highnesses the prince and prin ces: of Teck Uo l'ndcriitoaü Womankind. It h related by Tit-Bits that a cer tain nan was recently very sad because Lb wifo had gone on a visit, which she would not lihorten in spito of his ap peals to come home. lie finally hit v io:i a plan to induce her to return, lio sent her a copy of each of the local papers with one item clipped out, and when she wroto to find out what it was Lj had clipped from tho papers ho re-; f.:so.l to tell her. Tho scheme worked a-.V.-.V-iv.bly. In less than a week she was homo to find out what it was I t':ii had boca going on that her hua- j baud did not want her to know about, i TO IMP. .OVE YOUri LOOKS. Devices for Milking tho Cnmplcx'.on Bet ter nml Adding to Physical Hoiiuty. Vanity furnishes tho inspiration for many of the inventions of tho patent office. One of these is a mask of very thin rubber, designed to bo worn on the face at night. It causes profuse perspiration, which washes impurities out of the skin and makes the complex ion clearer. Sun tan is quickly re moved, so it Í3 claimed. Another device for producing dim ples, according to tho Cincinnati Com mercial Gazette, is a woman's idea. It is a wiro mask, likewise to put on when going to bed. By an arrangement of screws, pencils of wood, very blunt, are made to press upon the checks and chin at the points whore dimples are desired. Uncomfortable? Why, of course. But, as tho French say, it is worth while to suffer for beauty's sake. False busts, hips and calves arc made of rubber, to bo blown out like bal loons, and in many other styles, while t.ie young lady of bund hopelessly keletonesque may procure a complete stuffed jacket which fills out her form at every point to the extent requisite for counterfeiting desirable embon point. If one is so unfortunato as to lack a nose he can obtain a false one of papier mache, artfully enameled to imitate the skin. One kind of imitation pro boscis is attached to a spectacle frame, so that the owner puts on his counter feit nasal organ in adjusting his glasses. Masculine vanity is concerned in the cnesi3 of about eighty patents for various kinds of mustache guards. One such is a gold plate with a spring, which may bo fastened to any drink ing vessel at a moment's notivc. Another 3 especially designed for beer glasses. A tube connecting with it goc3 down deep into tho beer, so that .Í 'i0 mustached drinker is able to avoid the foam. Other guards arc destined to be worn l!io spectacles roinewhat, with wires to pass to tho back of tho cars of the vcarcr, and hold them on. Tho shield for the mustache is of gold or silver, or of fine gold wiro net. THE ITALIAN PEOPLE. A View oí Their Present Condition and rros,i!fts for tho 1 uture. What nro tho prospects of tho people? That depends in tho present case large ly upon the people themselves. A peo ple that aro not united will never bear taxation patiently, because a disunited people cannot bo commercially pros perous, and, therefore; cannot afford to pay tho taxes. The difference between north and south Italy, or between Pied mont and Sicily, nro not, indeed, like thoso between Ireland and England, largely religious, but they are certain ly radical, and tho gulf between the easygoing, but passionate, children of the two SÍJÍÜC3 and tho hardy moun taineer and stalwart cultivator of tho Piedmont plains is almost as wide as the chasm between the Teuton and the '. It. Victor Emanuel's favorite uniticr of Italy was the army, but, Bayath. Fortnightly Review, it has turned in tho hands of his successor into a disin tegrator. It was all very well to move the army up and down Italy when the army was a symbol of common libera tion from which so much was expected; but now tho tyrants arc gone there is no longer halo of romance about the army, nothing but army bills. The tyrant now is the tax collector. Undoubtedly the people have a griev ance. Tho taxes have been not only cruelly but unjustly exacted. The col lector ha3 entered Sicilian cottages, backed by tho police, and, seeing the pot-a-feu smoking, argued that those who could ai.'ord to eat could afford to pay a "supplement'' or excess tax, and if it turned out there was no money, ha oCleir. of tho lav have been known tJ seine tho dinner and throw it out the window, under the noses of tho poor peasant and his hungry family. There was no redress for the subjects of Hum bert any more than for those of Bomba, when hi3 police, under . the brutal Manisalco at Palermo, dragged the wives and daughters of the I'alcrmitans out of bed, stole their jewelry and ar rested their husbands and brothers on lietitious charges. People will always rise against misgovernmcnt and oppres sion, whether the government calls it self republican, monarchial or any other. A PIE-EATING HORSE. Ho lias linen Known to Refuso Oats for 1 1 I at un I Sleek. Leonavd Jacobs, a pie. peddler of An sonia, Conn., has one of tho most re markable horses in Connecticut. Other towns have boasted of horses that chew tobacco, chew gum or drink beer, but Jacobs' horso will cat pie, says a local exchange. The horse is twenty-three years old. Jacobs' pies come from New Haven, packed in cases, and iii trans portation some of them generally get broken and cannot bo sold. One day Jacobs threw a broken pie on tho ground near the horse's head. The ani mal smcllcd of it, touched it with his tongue, lapped it up and ate it with relish. Then Jacobs began to feed pies to tho horse. The horse soon got to like them, and would even refuse oats when pie was to be had. The habit has grown on him, until now, when Jacobs says "pie" to him, tho horse will turn his head and wink expectantly. lie has a decided preference for minea pie, and tho more raisins and currants and cider there nro the better he is pleased. Apple pie is a great favorito with him. Most bakers put grated nut meg into the applo pie, and this doesn't seem to agree with tho equino taste. Pumpkin pie ho likes and cranberry tarts are an especial delight. Peach, apricot, berry and prune pies are ac ceptable, but unless the prunes are stoned ho will not touch pruno pic after the first bite. The horso is fat, sleek, and youthful in his movements, and Jacobs expects to keep hiin on the pie cart until he is long past the ago wh'.u most horses arc turned out to grass for tho rest of their day3 or uro carted to tho horso cemetery by the sido of the murky waters of the Naugatuck river.
