THE SHAKER INDIANS.
Oueerscet of Redskins That 1'lourlslies
In tho Puciflu Northwest.
The Indians of this country have Just
closed a religious revival, and have left
for Pacific county, where they will en
deavor to rekindle a religious spirit
among the tribes there.Thelr religion Is
erv unluue. strikingly original, and dis
tinctly Indian. It Is known us tlie
Shaker religion. It Is said that it first
originated in the Sound country,
among the Mud Bay Indians.
The story Is that one of the tribe, John
Slocum, was taken sick und gradually
wasted away and died. Preparations
were made for his funeral, but John
surprised his friends by coming to life
again the day the funeral was to bo
held. He stated that he had gone to
heaven, and that he was told to go back
to earth again and help his people; that
they were very wicked, and that he
must help them. His recovery was very
rapid, and he at once started this new
sect. It forbids the use of tobacco and
intoxicating liquors of any kind. It hns
worked wonders among the Chehalls
county Indians, who previously were
not noted for their morality or so
briety. One who has witnessed some
of their meetings says:
'When a candidate announces a de
sire to Join he Is placed Jn the center of
a room on his tip toes, with his arms ex
tended full length over his head. The
crowd circles around him singing,
shouting, ringing bells, and hammering
anything that will make a noise. Fre
quently one of the heavy bells Is broken,
and this is hailed with delight, as it is
supposed that the bad spirit has left
the candidate and entered Into the bell,
filling it to bursting. When this hap
pens the candidate Is completely
cleansed from all evil and Is born again.
The candidate for admission, after

standing In the position for a short
time, commences to shake through fa
tigue. This is taken as a sign that the
good spirit is entering and the noise and
din are, if possible, increased as the
poor victim's shaking Increases, until,
from sheer exhaustion, he falls trem
bling upon the ground. His conversion
Is then complete, and he is admitted In
to full membership."

THE GRAVE OF BLAINE.
Near tho Tomb Stands a lightning-
Mr. Blaine's Is the grave oftenest vis
ited in Oak Hill cemetery, and it was
a subject of remark that nothing but a
plain footstone marked the resting
place of ithis great American for so
much no man can deny Mr. Blaine.
An oak tree, partly blastedby lightning,
stands at the head of the grave. It was
found that Mr. Blaine had asked that
the tree be not disturbed, and had a
particular objection to costly mausoleums.
No one can say the grave Is neglected.
Mrs. Beale, Mr. Blaine's youngest and
favorite child, has visited It every wee)
when she has been In Washington. Sh
has returned here for the flrat tlm
since her marriage in t'he spring. It 1;
