THE COLUMBIAN AND DEMOCRAT, BLOOMSBURGr, COLUMBIA COUNTY, PA.
In a curicwlty sliop recently visited
bv a roDrcsontattvo of tho San JtfYan
Cisco Chronicle was a collection of
nearly every rirticlo manufactured out
of stono by tho IlritUh Columbia Intl.
iant and nearly all tho tools used In
manufacturing. Tho greatest, tlcgrco
of Ingenuity was displayed In tho tools.
Oao hammer was mado of stono, with
a bono or young walrus tusk handle.
Tho bono had been set snugly against
the stone, and cyo bored in the bono,
and through that and around tho stono
head rawhide thongs bad been bound
so as to mako tho wholo Implement as
solid as ono pioce. Some of tho black
stono pi pea made by tho northern Ind
ians wero carved with a degreo of
grace that would do credit to a modern
educated carver. A curiosity, also
mado by British Columbia Indians,
remindj ono of tho story, of tho early
traveler in Ohina who ordered a pair
of trousers "as por pattern enclosed."
Tho now trousers, wcro mado with
patches and worn botes, carefully ro-
f rodnced as in pattern. A, northern
ndian had ondoavored to carve a rep
resentation of a Caucasian and had
taken for his model a figaro head on
ono of Vancouver's ships. Whero the
figure-head's anatomy had been inter
ferod with bv tho bo'wnicco of tho ship
the Indian artist had carefully follow
his model. Tho little carving was
very cleverly composed of wood, stono
and bono to represent tho different
materials of dress. Aboriginal caricnt
uro is admirably represented in tho
collection by a wood carving of a llus
si an naval officer. Tho caricature
shows an unusually long-logged person,
ridiculously stiff and straight, bewh'mk
crcd and lierco-looking, having a wasp
like waist and the shoulders of a Mul-
doon. It is manifestly a caricature,
nnd no doubt represents the Alaska
opinion of their early Bnbiectors. Call
fornla Indians supply a large part of
the stock of all San Francisco curiosity-shops.
Shell money, tusk weapons,
bows and arrows, stone rota and veg
etable fibro baskets, fur-skin moccasins,
feather caps and bono tools aro shown
in abundance. In the store in ques
tion ia one article which is a silent evi
denco against tho claim of those who
sentimentally assert that the Apache's
wero not a murderous class betoro tne
white invasisno. The article is the
Apache's idea of a "billy." It consists
of a short, stout club, from tho end of
which is loosely suspended a round
stone, about tho size of a base ball,
covered with raw-hide. Tho stono is
conucctod with the cVab by a two inch
thoDg ot tho sarao rawhide which cov
ers it, and tho hido continues up as a
wrapping for the club. From the up
per end of tho club dangles a pony's
tail gaudily covered, and the whole
object suggested a cracked skull with
Ploughing in Green Crops.
It is a practice more common in the
West than in any other part of the
Union to fertilizo land by ploughing
under green. crops. This is done often
because of a lack of manure or other
fertilizers lor bringing np poor land.
An agricultural exchange recommends
winter rye for this purpose, to be sown
immediately after harvesting. "This
crop will cover the ground before the
winter sets in, and thus protects the
land anl as soon as spring opens it
wil be in a condition to make a rapid
growth. When it gets well np it
should be plowed under and tho land
seeded with clover, this being one of
the best crops to onrich tho land with
one of the most important materials
for plant growth, both the roots and
tho tops of clover being very rich in
nitrogen as can bo purchased for one
hundred dollars.. If this is really truo
farmers had better raiie clover to plow
in than to pay eighteen cents a pound
for nitrogen. The cow pea is said to
bo a good crop to grow to plough un
der, but as wo have bad no experience
we cannot speak of it from our own
knowledge. Formerly buckwheat was
raised to.plough in green, but this has'
gone out ot use as a rule. Indian corn
furnishes a large.amount of material to
plough in, but we have never been
fully satisfied with this crop, for some
reason other crops do not grow as well
alter it as alter clover, or, in tact many
other crops; the land indicates that an
acid has been formed by tho decom
position of the corn stalks. Millet
makes a better green crop than corn.
Whatever summer crop is grown, ex
cept clover, should be followed by win
ter rye to shade the land and to furnish
a crop to plow nnder the next spring.
It should be the aim of tho farmer to
have bis land exposed to tho sunshine
as little as possible, always keeping
some crop growing on it, thus draw
ing as much as possible from the air.
"Clover sown in the spring may be
ploughed under in the next spring, or
if the land is in fair condition it may
be permitted to grow and one crop
harvested; and when tho second crop
is grown, plough it nnder and sow win
ter rye, to be ptoughed nnder as late
as tho land can be spared before want
ed to plant. In this way in two years
threo crops can be ploughed under and
ono crop harvested, or m ono sumraot
and two winters two green crops can
bo ploughed in. Land thus treated
will bo in a good condition to produce
crops eight or ten years, with only con
centrated fertilizers to enrich it.''
ehoes-An Old Soldier's Story.
'Tho old army shoe," said a slender,
darkhalred mail, "was a great institu
tion. I hbvo a pair at homo that I
have preserved, not as mementoes of
any long march, but as landmarks in. a
venturous life. It was a cistom among
the poorly-shod Confederate troops to
remove, after a battle, tho shoes from
tlid dill, nion soldiers. This was not
done in any spirit of vandalism or
I.enillerfMiesw. 1 lie shots were taken
tSi io supply men who had much
inarching to do in inclement weather.
Wu nimi.ly ihanuvd old, woruotit sh es
fur the good oiiis worn b) thou wl(0
Jell in battle.
'On ono occasion I took n pair of
nicely polished No. O's from the body
of a man who must havo been in lifo a
model soldier. I had worn theso shoes
with great comfort through tho four or
live remaining days ot, activity Inci
dent to tho battle boforo I. had an op
portunity to examine them carefully.
When wo ere again in permanent
camp nnd wero allowed to lemove our
cartridge boxes and shoes at night, I,
made a stmtliug discovery , or rather I
was greatly startled by a discovery that
I mude one morning as I took up the
lioen to put them on.
"On the other side of tho flap or
tonguo was written, in a clear, round
hand, my own name. I was confident
that I had nover written it there, but
tlu ro on both shoes wcro my initials
nml my family name, and I had taken
thosu shoes four days before from the
feet of a man killed in battle., The in
fi reuce was that I had stolen tho shoes
of a n.au related to me in some way.
I could not put them on. I walked in
my slocking feet to tho commissary
department, scoured a pair of now
shoes, and I havo tho other shoes
. "Tho affair troubled mo for a long
tlmo. I had no opportunity for mak
ing satisfactory inquiry in regard to
the man who boro my, name, but in
duo timo I did learn that thoro was no,
family relationship whatever. Ho had
como to this country lrom r.ngiauu,
and had been in thooountry only a few
months when tho warbroko out. Ho

recently. "A few days ago 1 at

an estimable woman, well known

Tho services wore held in the
ohurch, and after tho sermon the
people passed tho coffin to take a
final look at tho corpse. About one
in every ten and perhaps more,
stooped over and kissed the lips of
the dead. It was a mark ot attco
tion, and a common custom, but
much more appropriately honored
in the breach than in tho observance.
That woman died of contagious mal
ady, and every woman who kissed tho
corpse assisted in scattering the germs
of discaso and death. They may not
havo known it, but they should. Somo
of those peoplo went homo to littlo
children, and the kiss of greeting as
they entered the house was the seal of

A Boy's Ingenuity.
Tho invention of tho vnlvo motion to
a steam cngino was made by a mero
boy. Newoomcu's cngino was in a
very incompleto condition, from tho
fact that thero was no way to open or
close tho valves except by means of
lovers operated by hand. Ho set up
a large cngino at one end ot the mines,
nnd a boy (Humphrey Potter) was hir
ed to work thebo valvo lovers.
Although this is not hard woik, yet
it required his constant attention. As
ho was working thu levels ho saw that
parts of tho onginu moved to thu right
diiectiou, and at tlio same timu ho had
to open and close thu valve.
He pi com oil a strong cor.l,aud initio
one end fast to the proper paitof thu
engine, ami thu other end to the valve
lover, and tho boy had thu satisfaction
of seeing tho cngino move with perfect
regularity of motion.
A bhort timo ufter tho foreman camo
around and saw tho boy playing mar
bles nt tho door. Leaking at tho en
gine, ho saw tho Ingenuity of tho boy,
nnd also tho advantago of tho inveii.
tion. Tho idea suggested by tlio boy's
inventive genius was put into practical
form, and made tho steam cngino an
automatic working machine.
