The Arctic Highlanders. -,
The Arctic Highlanders are, from their
environment, a nomadic race. They
rarely have their summer abiding place
where their winter settlements are, aud
the dwellings for the two seasons ure of
entirely different character. Their winter
huts, or igloo?, are of two kinds of con?
struction. Those for temporary use
while traveling are built of snow or ice.
Those for permanent use aro located
?where the fietce northwest winds are
tempered by great cliffs, and are built of
stone; an entrance to each is had through
a leng, low tunnel, and both are covered
by turf. The interiors are about six
feet square and high, and lined with
skins, with the fur outward. One-half
the interior is takenup by a platform on
which the family sleep and sit, and thc
other halt is used asa receptacle for all
kinds of filth and refuse. In these con?
stricted quarters five, six and sometimes
more Eskimos swelter in a terrific heat
irom a small oil lamp, and enjoy them?
selves during the long arctic night,
which lasts from the first week in No?
vember to the middle of February. This
AGJoyment consists in eating, sleeping
and visiting.
As soon as the spring thaws begiu, the
roofs of the stone igloos are taken off to
allow thc elements to cleanse the inter?
iors, and the occupants betake themselves
to tupics, or skin tents, set up perhaps
miles from their winter habitation?.
These tupics are made of sealskin with
the fur all scraped off, and all are made
exactly alike, and of thc same number
of pieces. The interiors aro titted up
the same as the igloos and are nearly as
filthy. Indeed, filth and vermin seem a
necessary accompaniment of the Eskimos.
Water for washing purposes they detest
with great heartiness. I belive a cat
could be persuaded to submit to a wash?
ing more readily than ai Arctic High?
lander. Only a bribe of uncommon value
will tempt one to undertake a bath. I
tried the experiment on a woman at
"Red Cliff House," Mr. Peary's winier
quarters on one occasion, and it was
only when I offered a thimble that tbe
protesting and almost tearful creature
consented. Crawling slowly to a near
by stream she dipped one hand in the
water and hurriedly rubbed it on her
face from her eyes to her chin, and then
scrambled back to the house as fast as
ber feet could carry her, where she
wiped tba objectionable "liquid off on a
towel belonging to one of Mr. Peary's
companions, and demanded her reward.
Her face looked a little brighter, buttha
accumulated dirt of years still remained
on and behind her cars.?New York In?
Cared or a Broken Back.
Drs. James and Thomas McCann, of
Pittsburg, are about ready to report to
the medical fraternity the case of John
Mulligan, who was cured of a broken
back. In October, 1883, Mulligan re?
ceived a fracture of the vertebras and,
ns usual with such cases, was paralyzed
from the loins down.
Eight, utiys after Mulligan's entrance J
to thc hospital the physicians, in tho !
presence of seventy-five students of the |
West Pennsylvania Medical College, :
made an incision eight inches long ia
the man's back. Tho vertebrae were ex?
posed. A fracture of the arcaes of the |
tenth and eleventh vertebrae was found.
Fragments of bone were pressing on the
spinal cord. This pressure was relieved. !
Two months later Muligan could move '
his rigut leg.
in ten months the patient walked out
of the hospital. He is now at work.
The report of the operation was kent
secret until it was proved a perfect sue- :
cess.?New York Mail and Express.

physical manhood, six feet one, straight
as an Iudian, tou^h as spring steel, with
long, white hair and beard sweeping
down beiow his belt. Ho enjoys the
reputation of having killed more bears
than any American living or dead.
"A year ago last spring ha brought !
into Laramie and told 500 bear skin?, !
the result of one winter's trapping. Ile
was assisted, however, by his three
grown sous. Many of the skins were
those of enormous grizzlies, that 'var?
mint' being extremely plentiful in the
Elk Mountains. He is marked all over
with the teeth and jaws of bruin. I
bought an especially tine bearskin of him,
ind be told me tbAt the original owner
came very near getting the best of the
'He said he was trapping along a nar?
row mountain path, en route to his traps,
and in making a sharp turn he met bruin
face to face. He had with him a eavage
wolf dog and a muzzle loading rifle. To
the left the mouutain arose abruptly and
to the right was a chasm '300 feet deep.
Tlie foot path was but a yard wide. The
dog iprang forward and attacked the
bear, but bruin cuffed him over into tbe
chaim at tnough he were a rabbit. Then
he advancer! on the apostle of the silver
plate revelation. Old Chris threw down
on him, but his old rifle hung fire, and
he only succeeded in wounding his as?
sailant. The bear rushed forward and
he threw it his fur cap. It snuffed at it,
tore it into iragments and cuffed them
over thc ledge. That gave Chris time
to reload, and when bruin again ad?
vanced he sot a bullet in the braiu."?

Parisian thief-takers are chiefly notice?
able for an exceptionally ordiuary ap?
pearance, if one m.iy use the expression.
It is rather disappointing at first sight to
auy one who knows detective literature;
but to look ordinary and not to be so is
obviously a great merit in the business,
when you co..ie. to think of it. One of
them pulls out of his pocket a specimen
of the homely instrument whic'a doc3
duty for handcuff* among these nieo.
They call it a cabriolet, or, mere cor?
rectly, ligotte, and it consists of some
twenty inches of whipcord, with a small
piece of wood at either end. The cord
is passed round the prisoner's wrists aud
twisted together. The thing is more
efficient, than might be supposed, and
your true Parisian thief-taker takes A cer?
tain pride in using simple means. He is
great at ready-made and ingenious de?
vices. One plan with a troublesome cap -
tive is to take oil one of his boots, which
makes him limp; another is to unfasten
his clothes so that he is obliged to use at
least odo hanel in holding them up.
The men make their own ligottes, and
sometime produ:e a more formidable
article by using strong wire in loops in?
stead of whipcord. But the real master
hand disdains even the ligotte; he carries
nothing whatever, no matter where be
goes. With thc majority of tbe crimi?
nals his mere personal influence suffices
to impose obedience, aud wheu he meets
with a desperate character he prefers to
trust to his good ri'^ht haud rather than
any weapon of offence.?New Y;>rk

The First Complete Bible.
The first complete Bible printed in
England wa3 issued in 1535 without any
lublisher's name. It was the work of
he celebrated Mites Coverdale, who in
:orporated, with revisions, Tyndale's
)ooks of the New Testament, as well as
lia Pentateuch and Book of Jonah. It j
ivas thus only partially original as far as j
Coverdale was e-orcerned, the rem lining !
portion being a translation of a tiransla- J
:ion. No perfect copy of this edition is
kBOWB to bo in existence. A copy sold
* few years ago in London for a sum
jqual to $'600 had the title, nineteen
leaves and thc map missing. The Cover- '
dale Bible i3 the one mentioned in these
notes heretofore as the ''Bug Bible*' and j
the "Treacle Bible," on account eif two j
curious passages found therein. The j
passage in Jeremiah which wc now read
U "Is there no balm in Gilead ?" is made j '
by Coverdale to read as "Is there no | '
more treacle at Gahahad?" Thc psalm |
which says "Thou shalt not bo afraid of j
thc tetror by night" reads, "Thou 6halt i '
not nede to bee at'rayed for any bugs by j (
night/' The ninth psalm, in that poi- : <

ever, that will bavo perhaps greater influ

given by Marion Harland, the well known
<ri)il popular writer, up m matters pertain
