Capital Crime Among the Sas Bias Indians. larrlase with White Men Forbltden Under Their Lani Stranger! Are Excluded After Nightfall. A strange race of people, with man era and customs stranger still, lives ear the coast at San liias, Colombia, nth America. To tlie few traders who sit the spot for cocoanuts and vege .ble ivory they are known as the San las Indians. OX their origin and his ry but little can be discovered. One thing is certain, that although iendly to the government of the Unit 1 States and to foreigners who may en r or Cud themselves weather-bound i the harbor 01 ban Bias, there is no ;cord of their having erer been con aered or subjugated by any other tribe ' power. ' It is quite probable that they havede ;;ended from the ancient Toltecs, but hat v icissitudes of tribal life they may ive passed through will probably ever be known. Although inclined to be friendly they ok with most jealous eyes upon any lort to cultivate a closer acquaintance lan the necessities of trade require. 0 matter how many vessels may lie at achorin the harbor, or how much trad igmay uave been carried on during the ay, every vhite man at sundown must D on board his ship, or at least quit the rritory of the tribe until the follow ig morning. This is a tribe law, jaiust which protest is useless. The maidens of this peculiar tribe are uie attractive, and manj' a jack tar ns risked his life in the effort to win capture a dusky bride. Love, as in .her lands, occasionally overcomes all jstacles, but if the unfortunate girl is mght or returns to her people the unishinent is death. The young mate of an English bark ing in the harbor became enamored : a girl whose home was near the beach, he mate's attentions were persistent id his love was secretly returned. ' One night, just before the ship was to .iL the Indian maiden secreted her ilor boy in the thickets nntil after irk, when they stole a canoe and staxt- 1 to paddle out to the vessel. But an .vful tropical storm came up which .used the eloping couple to lose their arings, and only with difficulty did ley manage to keep afloat. When orning dawned they were washed ihore, almost exhausted. The enraged idians seized both and made them cap-s-es, condemning the girl to inime , ate death. " The captain of the bark, anticipating ouble, sent a boat's crew ashore with rescue party. A demand was made r the prisoner, whereupon the mate as released, but the girl was held for ie death sentence. Finding argument pseless, the desper e youth, with a few sailors at his ick, made a rush to rescue his sweet mrt, and had almost accomplished it, hen he was struck down by a spear ' rust from the hand of the girl's : ther. She broke from her captors, . nzed with grief, and, seizing the spear, ' -ove the head of it into her own breast, ie sailors managed to carry away - eir wounded mate, Dut were driven to their boat and awav from the lore. The territory held by the tribe is quite tensive, although its boundaries are t very accurately defined. It extends om cape San Bias far back into the ountains. Cocoanuts are the source of the na m's wealth, which is considerable, obably the largest groves in the prld are just back of San Bias, and .long to these Indiana. A kind of commonwealth or coop ative system seems to exist among era, and each member of the tribe llects and carries each day his share the cocoanuts and adds it to the ormous pyramid of them near th ore, which is the tribe's treasury, illions of nuts are thus stored and in liting for a profitable market. The erage price for them is from eight to n dollurs per thousand in Colombian ;ver, or nbout 55 per cent, of that aount in gold. One-half of the pay is ken iri cash and the other half in mer .andise. The nuts are carried from the "great !e" to the beach in palmetto bags, ie natives with these loads, each sighing 50 pounds, travel at a brisk iyl all day longar.d seemingly without jtigue. Although a slender, wiry race, ;ey will accomplish with ease a task at would kill or prostrate Anglo-Sax-s. The Indians are excellent sailors, and en in the rough weather m.ke the p from cape San Bias to Aspinwall boats hollowed out of logs. A cocoanut grove is a source of never ;.lmg revenue to its owners, as tne ?c from tlie fonrth year of its exist ce bears indefinitely and has few if fy enemies. The nuts intended for itnmerce are allowed to ripen and Jop to the ground. Every one that Us is worth about half a cent where it All day and all night the owner of the ;ate may listen to his wealth drop lg to the earth around him. In fact, is necessary to exercise care in walk ' omoritf the trees, to avoid having e's skull fractured by the descending i tit. Boston Globe. PUST LAID BY OIL. w York Central Railroad Tries This Sprinkling Method with Sncceat. The enormous growth of passenger : afiic and the frequency of passenger ains on some of the railroads east and -St has rendered necessary the adop ;n of some method of laying the dust the roadway. Experiments have been extensively tried within the last, two yearB of sprinkliug the roadway j with oil. Such un experiment was tried ' recently on a section of the Hudson Uiver division of the New York Cen tral with a fair degree of success. The material used is one of the byproduct of petroleum distillation, which is spread upon the roudvvay by means of a sprinkler attached to a flat car, which is pushed along by a locomotive at a speed of about three miles an hour. The New York Central management is satisfied that sprinkling with oil is a good means of keeping the roadbed free of dust, but this method is regard ed by some of the New York Central operating officers as too expensive to come into general use. Expert engi neers have expressed the opinion that a roadbed of crushed stone, although costly, will prove to be cheaper in the end for a railroad. Such a roadbed, it is averred, is free from dust, and con sequently, will not require any sprinkling. ' In the annual report of the Boston & Maine railroad, just issued, President Lucius Tuttle says that about 400 miles of the track of that system have thus far been sprinkled with oil. "The first application," he says, "pen etrates the surface of the roadway to the depth of about three, inches, and its viscous consistency retards its evapora tion and gives permanent and satisfac tory results in laying and adhering tog-ether the dust particles that, under normal conditions, are thrown up in clouds by the motion of passing trains." About 2,000 gallons of the fluid are re quired for each mile of single track, costing, at the present price of ma terial, including the patentee's royal ty, about $100 a mile. President Tuttle adds: "Present experience indicates that an additional sprinkling will be necessary in each of the two succeeding years, and that thereafter no further sprinkling will be required for a pe riod of at least five years." The oil sprinkling system is in vogue upon the Boston & Albany railroad, the Chicago & Alton and half a dozen other western railroads. N. Y. Times. MADE IT EASY FOR HILDA. An Obliging Chicago Man AVho Had Thlnga Fixed So the lUrcd Girl Heed Sot Worry, Rosenthal keeps a drug store out Cot tage Grove avenue way. Like the rest of mankind he has his troubles, and a few weeks ago they took the form of the servant girl dilemma. The light of the kitchen left in the dark of the moon and the druggist was fain to fill her place with another. He has had experience of the employment ogency and is wise. He sought the newspaper and clipped out a "situation wanted" ad., which he thought would fill the bill, and he went over to Sedgwick street to see the pros pective successor to the light of the kitchen. She was a descendant of the hardy Norsemen and looked as hardy as any of them. She had large bumps on the backs of her hands where other people wear knuckles, and when she moved her arms things that looked like hams stood out in her sleeves just above the elbows. But she knew her bus iness. She didn't let Mr. Rosenthal get the start of her with any questions. As soon as she learned he had called in answer to the ad. she began the cross examination. "How many children have you?" she asked in a painful way. Her English was badly broken in spots, as though it had fallen from a great height. Mr. Rosenthal wa3 forced to confess' that he was the happy father of six. This rather put a damper on things at the start. Hilda's Norse brow cloud ed and she lost the air of insouciance which Mr. Rosenthal was pleased to note as soon as he entered the room. "Have you a second girl?" she asked, shortly. Mr. Rosenthal gladly admitted that the family had such an adjunct. "Do j'ou send out the washing?" asked Hilda, imperiously. The druggist told about that feature of his domestic arrangements. But. he could see that Hilda did not approve of him and he grew reckless. "I suppose you have a big Sunday dinner?" said Hilda. "Yes, that's one of the best things we do," said Mr. Rosenthal. "You see, we order an eight-course dinner from a caterer every Sunday, and he sends it up in a wagon with the waiters to serve it, and then we always want the lady who is living with us to sit at the head of the table on Sunday, so I don't think the Sunday dinner would bother you much." Hilda looked at him in surprise a mo ment. Then a great light seemed to break in on her. "Oh, you think you're smart, don't you?" she said. And then the incident was considered closed. Chicago Chronicle. A Cnte Thief. A story bearing upon the ingenuity of the London thief relates to the late Sir James Ingham. A charge of watch robbery was preferred by a gentleman against an individual who had traveled in the same carriage with him from Bournemouth, but in the end it was found that the watch had not, been stolen, but had been left home by the prosecutor. To mollify the innocent man, Sir James said: "It is a most re markable occurrence. To show, how ever, how liable we all are to make these mistakes, I was under the im pression when I left my house at Ken Bington this morning that I put my watch (which, I may mention, is an exceedingiy valuable one) in my pocket, but, arriving at this court, I found that I must have left it home by mis take." While business was proceeding an old thief at the back of the court went out,' jumped into a hansom cab, drove off to Sir James Ingham's resi dence, and, by representing himself as a bona-fide messenger, obtained pos session of the watch, which has never been heard of since. Chicago Inter Ocean. BROKE BRUIN'S NECK. A Sheep Stealing Itear Killed by a Plucky Black Ram. Ilia Bearshlp Held the Ham In Con tempt, Bat He Was Not Al lowed to Dine on Freiih Umb. Among the farm possessions of one Peter Morely, who lives along the wa ters of Little Kettle creek, in Pennsyl vania, is a large black ram. As the story comes in from there, like Jim Smiley's famous jumping frog, no one noticed until recently any more points about this ram than there were about any other ram. Now this ram is the sensa tion in the Little Kettle creek country, for he has proved himself a benefactor to the neighborhood by killing alone and unaided, and in one, two, three or der, a big bear that for weeks had been devoting himself to thinning out the sheep pastures. This bear had been hunted in vain far and near. A few days ago Farmer Morely heard that the cunning mutton stealer had been seen in the vicinity, and he posted his lS-year-old boy Peter as a guard over the field where his sheep were feeding. The boy was armed with a double-barreled shotgun loaded with buckshot. If the bear appeared young Peter's instructions were to give him both barreja. Young Morely watched with patience and fear for two days, but no bear appeared. On the third day he felt himself more at ease and began to think that Bruin did not care to bother with that flock of sheep, his rcconnoitering having probably dis covered to him the boy and the gun on g-uard. About the middle of the after noon of the third day, however, the guardian of the flock was startled to see the bear jump over the stone wall, only a few feet from where he was sitting. The bear put so ferocious a front to ward the lad that he dropped his gun, sprang over the wall, and ran at the tup of his speed toward a field, not far distant, where hrs father was at work. Parmer Morely started for the sheep pasture as fast as he could run. When the bear appeared in the field the sheep were feeding in a group in the middle of the lot. By the time Farmer Morely reached the fence where the frightened boy had left the gun only one of the flock remained where the group had been. That one was the black ram. The others had fled into a far corner of the field, where they were huddled to gether, bleating in terror as they gazed back at the shufiling form of the bear. Bears are epicurean in their tastes, and if they visit a pigstye it is always the youngest and fattest inmate they select. If it is mutton they are after, they work on the same principle. So this particular bear paid no attention to the black ram, but was passing by not more than ten feet away, with the intention of making his selection from the trembling and bleating flock be yond. It was at this interesting mo ment in the proceediugs that Farmer Morety appeared at the wall. The bear had got in range of the ram as he shuffled contemptuously along, and then the ram seems to have made up his mind that this ugly-looking stranger had no business there. He leaped into the air, and like a shot threw his thick, hard head against the bear, striking the big brute in the side, near the sho(deK The bear went down like a lump of Iced, and for a few seconds lay there. The ram packed away, his eyes glaring and every sense alert. The bear rose to his feet and gazed in unmistakable surprise at the ram. "If anybody ever wondered what had struck him," says Farmer Morely, "that bear did." But the bear didn't have time to fig ure the matter out, for the ram took the air once more and landed against Bruin again, this time between the eyes. Again the bear bit the dust. All this occurred so quickly that Farmer Morely had not yet come within Bure gunshot of the bear, and before he could reach good range the bear rose again, but only got half way up, for the ram followed up his advantage and pounded his head the third tine against the trespasser. The bear lay still a mo ment and then sprang quickly to his feet, turned, and began a tottering re treat. But Bruin did not get five feet away. The ram caught the bear a thundering blow on the neck, and down went the discomfited sheep stealing again. The ram stood in position to re peat the dose, but it was unnecessary. The bear did not rise again. When Farmer Morely got there he found the bear, to all appearance, dead, but to make sure he shot the animal in the head. He might have saved his am munition. The black ram's last butt had broken the bear's neck, no doubt killing the big brute instantly. From all accounts it is not likely that Peter Morely's black ram will ever again be degraded by treadmill work on the churning machine, but will be kept to become the sire of a race the proudest part of whose pedigree will be that they are descendants of the only sheep that ever killed a bear. N. Y. Sun. - An Interesting Legal Question. In Judge Rightor's division of the civil district court the successions of Mrs. Pauline Bangles and Marie Angelle Langles were called for adjustment. A very interesting legal point is involved. Mrs. and Miss Langles were passengers on the ill-fated steamship La Bour gogne, which went down in midocean almost a year ago. Both had written wills, the mother leaving her property to the daughter in the event she died first and vice versa. The question now is which died first. They both met their end in the same disaster, but the con tention is that the daughter, being younger and stronger, must have sur vived longer in the water than did the mother. O.
