A desnerato atteinnt to burn down the
town of Tareiituin, Pa., was niade early
Sunday lnorning. The villains had taken

in the vlllairc and earriod oll" the huck-
t'ts and tubs. Tlie orie of the arou'-ed a

Capt. Lee Hail, Indian agent of the
Couianehe, Kiowa, and Wiehita Indians,
Is in Dallas,Tex., iiroseeuting thieves who
have been stealing ponies from Indians
and ruuning tnein into icxa. m iin m-
terview he iaid:"What is needed inost to
niake the Indian a fanner is for hiin to
work side by side with white fann haml
I would rather have llfteen white fann
boys to work witli my Indians than all
the college graduates and theoretieal far-
niers in the eountr'. The Indian is an
iniitator, and the plan I suggest would
make a fine fanner of hini. If adoptcd
at all Indian ageneies the problein of eiv
ilizing the Indians would be solved in
eightecn ntonths. A few nionths' praeti-
cal fann expfiriertce at the ageney is wortli
more to the Indians than all the theory
larining that can be taught in as many
years at the Indian sehools of the East.

Iwullng to the eeilar, but found It loeked.
Vhen the burkt'cjter refused to open the

the stairease by a dhn llght, ho saw a
beer keg in the eellar and started for it,
but walked into a pit about niiio feetdecp,
