An Indian Christmas.
Near the northern border of the Indian
Territory lies a square piece of land re
served for the Nei Perccs Indiana, about
three hundred in number and prisoners of
war to the United States Their reserva
tion joins that of the Poncas and these
two tribes are under the same agedt. On
Christmas Eve a very kindly invitation had
I een sent to the white employes at Poncas
to dine with the Nez Perces the followiug
day Sunday morning about sixteen of us
left the Ponca reservation for our fifteen
mile ride. Before us lay great brown
streciies of prairie, without a tiace of
snow or even frost. The sun had risen
like a conqueior, aud starting "in his tri
umph marched across the sky," had dis •
missed every cloud and trace of mist. The
air was chilly but uot cold.
Gliding along the smooth prairie road,
we soon reached our dcsliuation. Here
lies the agency, whose buildings consist ot
two little dwelling houses for white em
ployes, a commissary for stores, a carpen
ter's shop and a little school house, used
also as a church. This last building we
entered just as the members were receiv
ing the sacrament. Around the room, iu
rows, the Indians sat, all uea and clean,
the women in the bright colors which even
the sternest civilization cannot deny them.
Before a little stand stood Archie Lawyer,
the minister, his kind aud benevolent face
greeting all. He spoke to his people iu
their own language, and then, services
being concluded, we left the little church
and walking a short distance through the
woods, came upon the lent. Not a tent,
but the tent, an historical institution,
which is put up only on grand occasious
and measures one hundred feet in length,
holding on that day four hundred persons
with room for manp more. It is made
of strog canvass, stretched on poles and
made warmer by hanging up hides and
blaukets. We did pot know what super
stitious rites, what iiery couucils at whose
results even brave white men have cowed,
what barbarous cereaiouies of tueir past
religion may have been enacted under this
smoke-stained canvas; but to-day it is ded
icated to a sweeter use and a more endur
ing religion. We are given a place ou
piles of qudts at the faither eud of the
tent. By our side is Nez Peree Joseph
and beyond him is the head men ot the
tribe, and ranged in rows arouud the sides
and squatted on bedding are all the rest
men women aud children. So still and
respectful are all that we can hear the
wind shaking the tent poies. See them
All in citizen's dress —the men with short
hair, the wou en with their black plaits
hanging down the back. Little mixing of
the race here, for most of the heads are
black and shining as "broken anthracite"
and very few of the faces present the fad
ed yellow look of the unsavory half-breed,
whose face bears theevideuce of the wuist
traits of the bad Indian and the bad white
Alter we are comfortably seated, James
Rubens, nephew of Chief Joseph, teacher
ana iuterpretea of his tribe, rises to speak.
This man is one of the few who are born
leaders and philanthropists, lie has been
the Moses of his tribe, leading them from
the darkness of their supertitious beliefs
into the light ot the true religion. His
education is sueh as an Indian school has
afforded, but his wonderful intellect, his
advanced ideas, his true nobility of char
acter, his ambition aud pride for his peo
ple have so led him to work for them, that
the transformation is truly wouderful and
their rapid progress in the work of civili
zation is without a parallel among Indian
tribes. All Indians cannot become like
him, lor he has but few superiors. But if
the goverment will persist in carrying out
its systein ot edveation for the indians, the
education of heart, brain and hands, in
every tribe will rise some who will Le the
deliverer of their tribe. He maintains a
day school which, in regularity of attend
ance, is ahead of any white school of its
6ize in the State. During one school
month h s enrollment was fifty-four and
the average daily attendance beiDg filty
Alter sperkmg to his o*n people he
spoke te us in English. "To ycu, a few
white people, who, in your different cap.
acities represent to us the government of
the United States, 1 will repeat what 1
have to my people. It is with glad hearts
that we welcome you to the warmest place
in our wigwam. The feast we have made
for you is in celebration of no heathenish
rite, no relic of barbarism, but an act of
Christianity and love. We feel glad that
on this day, when Christ our common Sa
viour, was born, that we, the representa
tive!! of a people who have often and long
been at war, meet here to drink of the
same cup and eat of the same dish. • War
disease and trouble have brought us to a
sad pass. We are the soirowlul remnant
of a once large tribe. [Here the speaker's
voice faltered and tears came in his eyes. J
But we forget that we have wronged eacn
other, and leel glad that we meet you as
our liicnds our brothers and our sisters.
We hope you will tell all those who do
not believe the Indian can be civilized and
have no faith in tne plans of the govern
ment how you have been tieated to-day
by your Indian friends."
He then proceeded to lay the cloth in
picnic fashion on the ground and hospita
bly placed before us the feast, lit fleet
that the Indians receive only flour, beef,
sugar, coffee and beans as their rations and
you may know how much of our dinner
was provided by our Nez Perces friends
—venison, turkey, beef, chicken, lamb's
tongue, sardines, canned salmon, Irish and
sweet potatoes, beans, tomatoes, boild
eggs, 1 ght bread, short bread, butter cann
ed cherries, piums, strawberries, and
peaches, plain cake, apples and coffee.
Our long ride and period of waiting had
given us good appetites and we almost out
did our Indian lriends in our zeal to do
justice to the really excellent things placed
before us. At the close <#ur agent,, Gen.
Jordan, recently of Philadelphia, Pa., in
a few fitting words thanked the .Nez Per

A Royal Visit.
The Prince of Wales has beea visiting
the Maiquis of Bath at Longleat. The last
royal visit to this place was that paid by
George 111. and Queen Charlotte in Sep
tember, 1789. Ine royal couple were en
tertained on their arrival from Weymouth
at a dinner, which "consisted of two six
teen, with eight removes, exclusive of the
side tables, and an excellent desert of
choice fruits and ices, provided by Mr.
Gunter." It lasted nearly two hours, and
His Majesty discoursed freely and pleas
antly ail the time. The beverage was
mostly small ale and water, very little
wine being druk at and none aft r dinner.
Th ; B was at 4 and at 9 there was a supper,
tne inrtrval beidg passed in card playing.
Tne royal party remained until the morn
ing of the second day, and full 30,000
persons visited Longleat during their stay
Tney then went on to Lord AUeebury's, at
Sivernake, "where they lay" OD the way
bick to Windsor. The King brought a
buite of forty-five persons (eighteen livery
servants) and eighteen horses. One hun
dred and twenty-five people slept at the
Hall.each Three oxen six fat bucks
and seventeen lat sheep were killed during
the visit, as well as an enormous quanty
Qf poulty and game.
To MAKE A TRIFLE. —The whip to put
over the trifle should be made the day
before it is required, as keeping it a day
improves the flavor and makes it more
•olid. Put into a large bowl three ounces
pounded loaf sugar, the whites of two
eggs, one pint ot cream, and a small glass
of sherry or raisin wii e. Whisk these in
gredients well in a cool place, and take
off the froth with a skimmer as fast as it
rises, and put it on a sieve to drain; con
tinue the wluskiug uutil there is suflleieut
of the whip, which must be put away in a
cool place to draiu. For the trifle, place
six small sponge cakes, twelve macaroons,
and two dozen rat&flas at the bottom of
the trifle dish; pour over them half a pint
of sherry, or sweet wine, mix with six
tabloapoonfuls of brandy, or if this if con
sidered too much, a little less brandy and
more wine; the cakes should be well
*>aked. Over the cakes put the grated
riud of a lemon, and about two or three
ounces of sweet almonds, blanched and
cut into strips, and a layer of raspberry or
strawberry Jam; make a go<xi custard, ami
pobr over the cakes; then heap the whip
lightly over the top as high as ]H>ssible,
and garnisli with strips ot bright currant
jelly, crystalized sweetmeats, or flowers.
SEASONING FOOD. —Many people have
the idea that a tim ly flavored dish must
cost a great deal; that is a mistake. If
you have untainted meal or a>uud vege
tables, or even Indian meal, to begin with
you ciui make it delicious with proper
seasoning. One reason that French cook
ing is much uicer than auy other is that it
is 9easiued with a great vanity of herbs
anil spices; these cost very little, if you
would buy a tew cents worth at a time,
you would soon have a goni assortment!
The best kinds are sage, tkvme, sweet
majoriam, tarragon, mint, sweet basil,
parsley, bay leaves, cloves, mace, celery
seed and onions. If you will plant the
seed of auy of these firtt seven mentioned
in little boxes on your window sill, or iu
a suuuy spot in your yard, you can gen
erally raise all you need. Gather aud dry
as follows; Parsley and tarragon should be
dried in June aud July, just lief ore flour
ing; mint in June or July ; thyme, major
iam and savory in July and August, basil
and sage in August and September. All
herbs should be gathered in the sunshine
and dried by artificial heat. Their flavor
is best preserved by keeping them in air
tight tin cans, or in tightly corked glass
lo REMOVE INK STAINS. —The Journal
de Pharmacie d'Anvers recommends pyro
phosphate of soda for the removal of ink
stains. This salt does not injure vegeta
ble fibre mid yields colorless compounds
with the ferric oxide of the ink. It is
best to first apply t&ilow to the iuK spot,
then wash in a solution of pyrophosphate
until both tallow and ink have disappear
ed. Stains of red aualine ink piay be
removed by moistening the spot with
strong alcohol acidulated with nitric acid.
Unless the stain is produced by eosiue, it
disappears without cfflculty. Paper is
hardly affected by the process; still it is
always advisable to make a blank experi

and rust stains and remnauts of mud stains
which do not yield to other detergents. It
may also be used for destoying the stains
of fruits and other astringent juices, and

limited to white goods, as it attacks fugi

form a favorite arlicle of diet. Our own
striped bass, with the black bass, tbe sea

The inot extensive application of elec
tricity to engineering evei made will be
the plan of Mr. Maxim, of New York, for
the basin around the city of Mexico, to do
which a Company has been formed, the
funds raised, snd the contract signed. The
plan, m bnet, is to establish on the west
ern slope of the mountains, where the fall
is great and rapid, a number of water
wheels sufficient to develop some twenty
thousand horse power, and make them
drive dynamo electric machines of high
electro motive power. The current from
these machines is to be conducted about
twenty miles to a set of electrio motors
placed on the margin of the lake, and driv
ing pumps, which will require about seven
thousand horse power to work them, The
water has to be taised about forty feet to
clear the ridge, but once raised, it b9S an
uninterrupted fall toward the Pacific of
several thousand feet, so that the descend
ing water is made to keep up the work.
The whole apparatus constitutes what Mr.
Maxim calls an "electric siphon," The
plan will, it is believed, succeed, and thus
relieve Mexico from the inundations that
have damaged it so much for several cen

Hair belts are quite extensively used in
Germany. They are less smooth than
leather or rubber, and therefore adhere let
ter to the pulleys without slipping, so that
a much narrower hair belt and pulley can
tie used than is the case with leather or
rubber. They are little affected by dauip
weather or by getting wet; at least they
elongate much less than leather, and do
not involve thp stoppage of tbe machinery
when long belts become so 6lacK as to ne
cessitate shortening. They are exceedingly
strong and durable, only friction at the
edges, which are the weak parts, must r.ot
be allowed, by avoiding the crossing of
these belts The high price at which they
were sold at first has been lowered, so that
now they cost about the same as leather
