An interesting account is publiAied
of an Indiaft who was accidentally
abandoned onl St. Nicholas Island, oil
the coast of Southern California, aid
spent eighteen years alone there, be
fore she was rescued. 'The fact of her
existence was discovered by a man who
went from the mainland to hunt for
otters, and who found foot-prints sunk
deeply in the ground. le was unable
to follow up these inlicatious till near
y three years, when one of a party
who accompanied hIjWqme suddenly
upon the object o. the r search. She
was in a small eno it4 made of brush
wood, about five gh od six feet
iI dianeter, with.. 11 opening op
one side. She wdR.olg.thed with a'gar
mont made of the skins of a, peoles of
duck that can neither walk or fly.
'Thii garineut reached almost to her
-ankles when sio stood erect. She was
sitting cross legged, skinning seal
blubber with a rude knife made of a
piece of hoop-iron driven into a piece
of wood. There was no covering on
her head except a thick matted mass of
yellowish-brown color, probably owlig
to tn. -un and the weather; it was

lsieo of cordomite, also blubber of the
vArious kinds of seals, etc., She had
a ride apparatus for catching shellfish,
and strong flahing lines made of seal
sinI'4s, which seemed to indicate that
she fishmd in.tho -ocean. *Tihe 4xpres
sion of her face was pleasing,, her fea
tures were regular, her cotiplexion
much fairer and her form raore sym
metrical then that of the Indian wom
en of the adjoining mainland. Some
suspect that she belonged to a trLb
much further north. She could not
understand anything said to her in any
of the Indian dialects of Sonth Califor
411a, but she hiad' a wonderful capacity
foronversing by signs. She retained
all-her teeth, but they were worn low,
0Qpp9sed to be due to her c'howing
tough and hard articles of food. Her
age appeared to be about lifty years.
She bowed i. all who caine near her,
greeting them with a smile. She tree
ly acompanied her discoverers to their
vessel, but her conduct at once con
vinceti them that sh' retained the vir
tue of female modesty. She showed
singular dexterity in making water
vessels from grass and asphIaltin, a
substance which is plent!ful both on
the island and tl:e mainland. She
seemed to recognize various appliances
of civilzation. She died about seven
weeks after reaching the mainland,
partly from the efects or a inl,
partly from dyisentery, brought on by
eating fruits and vegetables. Padie
Gonzale', the superior of the mission
of Santa Barbara, has sent her dress of
skins, her baskets and implements to

CURING HAD-TEMREtUD 1iOXsE,.
The stable-boy told me a year or so ago
that my horse had got to acting very
ugly when lie drove hita out of the
carriage house-prancing, jumping,
backing, and cutting up generally. On
taking the reins myself the next time
he wa# harnessed I found that this was
ideed'the case. I had some diffliculty
in getting into the street without
knocking the carriage to pieces against
the gateiposts, and when we got there
there was quite a pirous exhibition be
fore we behaved 'ourselves. I took a
night to meditate upon the difliculty,
for it seemed to me a pretty serious one,
as I had known many horses to fall in
to a vicious habit or that kind and nev
er get out of it. The next day whin he
was put to the carriage I carried out
an apple and gaverhnn, and while lie
was enjoying it got Into the buggy and
took up the linea, and he walked out of
the barn its quietly as a kitten. For
more than six months afterward lie
never showed the slightest return of
his rebellious behavior. thinking, no
dopbt, every time lie was harnessed, of
that deliclous apple, though the luxury
of bribery had not been once repeated.
But, a few weeks ago, the lad who takes
care of him told me that Bobtail (so
called because his tall sweeps the
ground) was getting into his old. tan
truns again; I told Phil to give hIm
a potato the- next time he took him
out, apples being cut of market. This
worked an equally sudden cure which
lasts until the present wr ling. Now,
I deem, as General Jackson used to say,
diat this same treatniont will cure bal
-kiness also, its well as any other bad
habit of.a horse that grows out of vexa
tion of mind. The mental constitution
of this animul, and his moral Constitu
tion too, are much like that of it child.

such an expensive luxury on the farn
as soine seem to thick, when we consid
er the wear and strain it takes from the
regular farn horses. Oi all large
farms, or on small ones where there is
much driving to do, a good driving
horse is a real necessity. Although it
is not generally known known, yet it
Is a fact that a half day's drive, even at
an ordinary galt., is more severe on a re
galar farm work horse than two days'
regular work on the farm. The reason
for tills Is apparent when we take into
consideration the fact that a horse's
muscles become s9t to a particular kind
o' work and the strain is unusual and
severe when put to other purposes than
the ;egular one. It is about as hard
for a family driving horse-we mean a
good stepping one--to be put to regular
firm work, such as plowing, harrow
1Ig and cultivation, as it is-to take a
plow horse and put h1im to roid service.

of treating cows as follows: "The

as is usually the case, come of their
own accord, when they take their
places in the stable, each in its owni
particuilar stancheon with mathemati

worry is permitted, and~ the milking is
done quietly and orderly, with no loud
talking, no0 sudden and startlIng voices.
Th'ere is no0 patting of the cows on tile
back with tuhe stool, no0 persuadinlg

Triaining Shepherd D~ogs.
When riding in 8eoiand It is a com
mon thing to meet a large flock or
shieep guardled by one or two dogs, at
tha distance of 5some iles from aiiy
house or man. I often wondered how
so firm a friendship has been establish
ed. Trhe method of education consIsts
ini separating the puppy, while very
young, from Its mother, and lin nocus
toninug it to its future companions. A
ewe Is held three or four times a day
for the little thing to suck; and a niest
of wool Is mtade for it in the sheep pen.
At no0 time is It atllwedl to associate
with othler dogs, o,- with the children
of the family. From this educa'.Ion it
has no wish to leave the flocks ; aiid,
just as another dog will defend Its mas
ter, mani, so will these dogs defend the
sheep. It Is amusing to observe, when
app~roachin~g a flock, .how the dog un
mediately advances barklhg, and the
sheep all close in lia rear, as if round
the oldest ram. These dogs are easily
taught to bring home the flock at a
certain hour in the evening. Their
most troublesome fault when young, Is
their desire to play with the sheep,
for In their sport they sometimes gal
lop the poor things uhmsrclfully. The
shspherd dog coines to the house every
day for some meat, am~d as soon as it Is
given him lhe skulks away as if Asham
ed of himself. On those occasions the
house dogs are very tyrannical, and
the least of them wvill attack and pur
suo the stranger. The minte, how
ever the latter his reached his flock1 lie
turns around1 and begins to bark, and
then all the house-dogs take quickly
to theIr heels. In a similar manner, a
whole pack of hungry wild dogs will
searcelIy ever venture to attack a flock
guarded by even. one of these faithful
shepherds. In this case-the shepherd
(log seems to regard. the sheep as its
fellow-brethren, and thus gains cor~fi
deuce; and the wild dogs, though
knowIng that the sheep are not dogs,
but are gootd to esp$, yet, when seeIng
them in a'flook with a shepherd dog at
their head, partly consent to regard
them as he does.

A Death-Haunted Farm.
There is a farm near Evergreen Park,
ihicago, known as. Siipp's Place, that bears
he roputation of being fatal to nearly every
me coming within its boundaries. The last
neident was the death of the owner, Mr.
klfred Shipp, on the first instant, by being
moaled upon the horns of an angry bull.
Io had gone into the field to feed the ani
ual, when he was pinned to an upright post
)y a thrust of the horn that passed entirely
hrough his body. This Ill-fated locality
ins within the last ten years been the scene
>f seven violent or sudden deaths, without
:ounting a dozen narrow escapes from hor
lble accidents. About three years ago,
luring the absence of the funily, August
Lranks, a hired man, was killed by Wil
liam Orvitt, a fellow-laborer, for the pur
p)ose of robbery. Franks lived two days,
mud Orvitt Is now lin prison serving a term
f two years. Six years ago two brothers,
aborers, who occupied a1 cabin, were found
lead, each with a bloodly knife im his
pasp, while the scattered carda gave the

Tihe last-inldent was precedvd 'y an Irish
