much land, but the property was
largely dissipated by the husbands,
who were unable to withstand white
temptations. These derelictions,
however, did not shake the loyalty
of tho Bquaws. Old Naucy, another of
tho sisters, for years led her blind
husband about with every evidence of
devotion, so that they become known
as tho Darby and Joan of Klttltas
Julia met her husband moro than

DISREGARD LAW ON SHIPS
Minister of Marine Gives Warning on
the Violation of Safety
Paris, France.?That the French law
of 1908?calling for safety drills on
passenger steamships at sea?is not
obeyed In spirit is the declaration of
j M. Delcasse, the French minister of
marine, in a letter just addressed to
tho maritime authorities throughout
The intention of tho law Is that
these drills shall bo held without pre
vious warning to passengers or crew,
so that they may be a really effective

contends, the crews are Informed In

ordered, and thus aro enabled to make
preparations, for which there would
probably not bo time at the moment of
The minister condemns this prac
tice and declares that in future only ]
drills carried out in entire conformity
with the regulations will be recognized
by the authorities.
