that whatever hap-

jiL-c.wn m the county are inumat?ly
known to every other.
.In one of the fifty parishes, whicl.
cli-iil not be named, because to name it j
is i: m "sential, lived a youth named
Joeejih Bamnel Wardley. He was tha
son of a blacksmith, was an able
bodied, fine-looking fellow, brosd-eho-.:ld-red,
lrond-breasted, with light
ril hair, anil eves that seemed to have

and indolent over his work by dav,
thnt lie was nver sufficiently exhaust- I
tl by Jus eiToris to enjoy a sound sleep
r.t night. He was half asleep by day,
he was half awake by night. There is
nothing so conducive to all-forgetting
6l?ep as the exercise of the full ener
gies by day. Josoph Samuel did not
put forth even one-half of his energies
by day. The other half remained to
disturb the tranquility of the night;
consequently he was a light sleeper,
and sometimes it was as doubtful
v. h ;ther he were asleep at night, as it
was doubtful whether he were awake
As he was dismissed from the pi w- j

trade for which he is suited."
Accident or Fate seemed to give the
requisite indication. The father of
Joseph Samuel bud been an industri
ous man all his life, and it was believed
that he had amassed money. - He had
no dealings with the bank at Oakham ;
that was wrll known. Where, then lid
he keep his money? It was whispered
that, singularly enough, whenever he
had received payment of a heavy bill,
Mr. Wardley was observed to mount a
ladder to put straight, as he said, one
of the tiles in his roof that was out of i
place and let the water through. That
the coincidence was noticed, and was
a matter of discussion, never oc- ;
curred to the blacksmith. The last time ;
he brought in his bill to the Squire it !
was for the sum t five-and-twentv I
ponnds and sosae odd shillings. Ko
sooner had he received the money than
it was remarked a tile was again loose
in his roof.
One night that Joseph Samuel la;,
awake, unable by any means to induce
sleep such as by counting sheep go
ing through a gap in the hedge, re
peating his catechism, listening to the
snores of his parents in an adjoining
room he thought he heard a sound on
the tiles, as if some one was engaged
repairing the roof. He got out of bed,

He was finally planted at a place on

entered tha shed attached to the
tavern, and finding a light cart, crept
into it, stretched himself on the straw

fast asleep. He slept so soundly tbet

A RAIN DANCE.

: Weird Spectacle.
IN front of each of the Indian rfli

serving traveler will notice a '
small post, about two feet
high, usually petrified, standing
always to the eastward of the
entrance of the pueblo. This Indiana will not permit the Uexieasi

the site of one of the "Seven Cities of
Cibola," whose fabled richness bronghf

Each morning the "Cacigne of the
Sun" takes his stand at this post and
r-itches the sun rise from behind the

the divergence of the sun as the time
of the summer solstice approaches, and

would be considered a witch, and
would be punished terribly by being

dubs, sometimes to his death.
The Cacigne, or sun priest, fasts for
two or three days in advance, and on
the evening before the dance he takes
a position in the middle of the dry,
sandy bed of the Colorado River and
prays for rain. In the mean time the
official town crier has announced
throughout the village in a deep bass
voice that the rain dance will begin the
next evening. On this day of prepara
tion three medicine men ere detailed
as olhciai bearers of offerings to the
sacred bike to the southwest of the vil
lage, from which direction the rain
comes. The delegates proceed with
prayer plumes, which they cast into
the lake. Each then fills an earthen
jar with the t acred water, and the,
solemn procession moves back to the
village, and the jars of precious fluid
are carefully deposited in the estufa.
or Indian church.
The great dance is preceded at 4
o'clock in the afternoon by a curtain-
raiser known as tho procession of tha
"iludheails. This is an old organi
zation a sort of Ancient and Honora
ble Order of Buffoons and is sup
posed to antedate the merrymaking
clowns of the Italian carnival and the
French Mardi-Gros. There are ten of
them, the lender being called the
Father. Each is painted mud-colored,
and wears on the head a cloth mask, on
which are plastered figures in adobe, a
huge nose, great circular eyes and
mouth like that of the end man of the
minstrel shows. A short blanket
covers the loins, and a shell necklace
is worn around the neck. A small
sprig of cedar is attached to each
mask, the Father being designated by
These ten clowns form in procession,
with their bodies bent forward. The
first one stoops over- with his hands
on his knees, and each of the others
places his hands on the hips of the one
in front. Then, iu a half trot, half-1
walk, they make the circuit of the vil
lage, under the eaves of the houses.
The people of the village crowd upon
the flat roofs, and, as the "Mudheads"
pass beneath, drench them with water
from great jars. As the clowns feel
the water they dance the harder, and
each vies with the others in agility
and in the eccentricity of step and
grimace. They accompany their move
ments with a monotonous song or
chant appropriate to the occasion,
sprinkled with local hits and gags,
and here the "Mudheads" have a
chance to fling back at their drenchers
on the roofs.
The rain dance proper, which follows
immediately after this buffoonery, is a
weird spectacle. All of the dancers ot
tho Puoblo Indians are semi-religions.

song or dance.

Centuries of life in the New World

were when they came to New France

many respects he is as simple as a

as guileful as any small trader on the

live in solitude ; he must have society.
When his American neighbor in New

When evening comes to the Canadian,
he leaves his plow in the furrow and
greets the stars with a song that his
forefathers who fonght with Fontenao

descendant still calls "la belle France."
Their tired women are never too tired
to dance in the midst of cares and
labors so heavy and severe that their

Endurance ol the Stormy Pet rel.
During a recent trip acroes the .'. t
antio the passengers on one steamer
tad a vivid illustration of the endor
see of the stormy petrel. Shortly af
or the ship had left the Irish coast
wo or three of these birds were sight
id at the ship's stern. One had been
optnred at eome previous time, and
ts captor had tied a piece of red flan
lei round its neck and let it go. The
jit of red made the bird very conspie
ious, and it could easily be identified.
That bird, with others that could not
e so easily distinguished, followed the
ihip right across the ocean. Barely,
luring the daytime at least, was it out
it sight, and if for an hour or two it
sras lost to view while feeding on the
refuse thrown overboard, it soon reap
peared, and the last seen of it was
within a few miles of Sandy Hook,
when it disappeared. When the fact
is considered that the ship, day and
night, went at an average speed of
nearly twenty miles an hours, the feat
performed by the daring traveler eaa
be appreciated. New York News.
The Castes of India.
Up to the breaking out of the Sepoy
Rebellion in India there were no leas
than 226 different religions creeds in
that country, each having a numerous
following. There were no less than
thirty-two grades of caste," and tho
lines were so rigidly drawn that it was
almost impossible for one to travel or
do business. Even in the ranks of the
troops maintained by the East India
Company everything went by caste. If
a soldier of second caste walked near
enough to the campfire of a soldier of
the first caste to cast his shadow across
it the fire had to be put out and rebuilt
on another spot. Out of a regiment
umbering 800 men not more than 100

Be never returned, and eince then
be and bis wife have not known each
stber's whereabouts until a few days
ago, when the son, by a mere chance,
found his father. Mrs. Strevil could
not account for his disappearance.
Alter seve;al days she received a let
ter from sore unknown person in
j Kansas Oity informing her that the

murdered there aud burled. She was
' asked to accept his grave and care fo.

vli's tltsappea: ance a son was born to
ber and was named Noah. About
ten years later Mrs. Strevil was
married to James Bowling and sev
eral years ago they moved to Hour
xo County and located on a farm.
The son, now a man 28 years of
ge with a wife and three children.

bas never beard that a man bearing
the ssme name as his lived in Bour

c ded to investigate tbe matter. He
called at StrefU's bouse during the
noon hour and wai Invited to par
tici Date iq the meaL At the table
young Strevil noticed the crinplcd
linger, as described by his mother.
The young man waited until dinner
was over and then be Invited the old
gentleman out into the shade or the
bouse, whe e he disclosed bU sus
picions, but when &e young man
rave blm the name his mother bore
before marriage, as well aa the names
uf his brothers and sisters, the 0 d
gentleman broke dow n in tears and
confessed. The decrep t old man was
assisted Into tbe ho se by his son and
tbe aged wire told of tbe recognition.
She was prostrated, but soon recov
ered and severely censured St evil
I for living a lie for twenty-eight years.
She immediately packed up her be
longings and went to friends In Kan
sas City. Mr. Strevil is living alone
on his ra m and is fearful of prosecu
tion for bigamy, though it Is under
stood that proceedings will not be
Instituted. The old gentleman de
nies the authorship or knowledge of
tbe letter written from Kansas City
whan be left bis first wife. He be
lieves that the second Mrs. Strevil
will return and live with him.

"large tongues, and near the root is a
