DOMESTIC LIFE AMONG A CIVIL
IZED INDIAN NATION.
Their Religious Observances—Siqier
si it ions Dying Out—Cherokee Hos
pitality—Their Social Pleasures—
Fashionable Indian Weddings.
The Cherokees are all Protestants,
being Baptists, Presbyterians, Mora
vians and Methodists, with a few Con
grcgationalists. As yet Cherokee churches
are hardly self-supporting, and there is a
tendency to rely on outside help.
There are many of the old Cherokee
women who date their first religious im
pressions back to the old Cherokee Na
tion, where the early missionaries labored.
Due preparation is always made for
their annual religious assemblies, which
usually take place in the fall. From
early times the full-blood's ceremonies
and dances began at this time of the
year. "Early in the spring," said our
friend, "the Indians assemble to-
gether in the vicinity of their
religious camping ground, and
plant what they call 'God's acre.' All
through the spring they carefully watch
this crop, tending it better than their
own, so that when the annual assembling
of the people comes there may be enough
food for all. When the feast opens long
tables are set up, upon which abundant
food is placed. No one is slighted, none
are over-looked. Baptist, Moravian,
PresbVttijan, or Nothingarian, it is the
same. Drive there on horseback, and an
Indian rushes toward you, and demands
your horse. Leave it in his care and you
need never think of it again, until after
the religious service, even should it con- J
tinue a week. It will be cared for, and
at your request will a -,: i n be place' at
yonr disposal. Standing outside, y a
watch the meeting goon with increasing
interest. You are urged to the table to
eat of the good cheer, for the food that
grows on 'God's acre' is free to all. The
corn is cut and brought in loads, and laid
before the horses of the hundred guest?;
the vegetables are harvested l>v the men,
and the women cook them for the tables.
One after another of the full-blood preach
ers take thestand and address the multi
tude, often several hours being occupied
in the service."
The same hospitality for which all In
dians were noted continues to this day
among the Cherokees. It was an old cus
tom for the Indian host to place his guest
at the table and himself remain away
while the guest partook or his abundant
meal. I was invited out to partake of an
Indian tea while 1 was in the
The house was built of logs and was one
of the oldest in the village. The parlor, j
for it might well be called one, was pret
tily furnished. The hewn log walls had
been overhung with paper, a good rag
carpet was on the floor and a cabinet
organ occupied a corner of the room. |
There was a bed with the whitest of cov
erings, and a sewing machine sat by a ,
table on which there was an array of al
bums and articles of ornamentation. A J
lire of four-foot logs, burning in the lire- ,
place, gave a chevrful appearance to the I
room. Like many houses in the Chero
kee Nation, in order to get to an adjoin- j
ing room it was necessary togo outside
to do so. Our hostess invited us to the
table, which was abundantly spread. ;
Eggs, sausage, pork, and beefsteak arc ■
the Cherokee bill of fare. Corn cake, !
biscuit, bread, pumpkin sauce, with pie |
and various kinds of cake, are usually
011 the table. You are sure
of a good cup of coffee.
Our hostess, the daughter of the family,
showed us our seats at the table. The
man of the house came not into the house
at all. The elder lady took her seat in
the corner of the room and carried 011 a
lively conversation, and the hostess, hav
ing poured the coffee and passed the j
food, took a seat behind my friend and !
myself, and none of the family came to j
the table while we were eating. But the ,
tea party was a pleasant one, and when
it was over once more myself and my I
friend adjourned to the parlor, while |
the family ate their own supper. Then J
one after another of the family came in, j
the pipes were lighted, and story and i
music occupied the hour.
The felicities of social life among the
Cherokees are much the same as in the
States. The social party presents the same
essential features. The surprise party is
always popular. On any evening the
happy proprietor of.l commodious r, -i
--<lence in the village is liable to be visited
l>y a large company of young men ami
ladies, who give him a surprise party.
Though the hour may lie late, and the
surprised host lie even on the point of re
tiring forthe night,the party is made wel
come. The iiou.se is soon a lilaze of light,
the furniture i i|uiekly removed from the
most spacious room, the young men and
young ladies—who had come in separate
comp .iies, the girls by themselves and the
young men by themselves—soon pair olT;
several of the young men strike up music
on the violin, ladies in every style and
color of dress take the floor, and the
joung n>9n take their placet, and the
dance begins. It \s not the old "storm
dance," in which -tie Cherokees once en
gaged, but tl)py dance the same dances
as do the knights of terpsichore in the
States. The culls, at the one we attended,
were not made by the musicians, but were
given by the dancers themselves. In
the intermission between the dances
the young Indies played on the piano,
and added to the interest of the evening
by the exercise of their sweet vocal pow
ers. The party was kept up to a late
hour; indeed, it was after 10 o'clock when
I left the house, but guests were still ar
riving, and my guide told me that the
dance would not be at its height at mid
night. As I left the house 1 found many ■
spectators to the festive scene stood in |
the yard, catching what glimpses they j
could of the joyfulnoss within. One by |
one.they went onto to piazza to look
through windows and doors, and then
moved away to give place to others. The
Cherokee hostess presides at the party
with all the grace of a queen, and her
guests are astdecorous as her white sisters
in the States. An easy bearing, modest
demeanor, and a polite manner are three
leading characteristics of the Cherokee
lady at the social party. Wlien good
fortune permits, the Cherokee builds for
himself a handsome home, and his good
wife furnishes it with rare good taste.
The walls are handsomely papered, ex
pensive paper often being used. Look
ing-glasses, pictures in elegant frames,
and plaques, painted in oil, or made of
hammered brass, are hung upon the walls.
Expensive carpet cover the floor, and
books and papers seem to have 110 second

it is no unusual tiling to sec the Chero
kee lady dressed in siik. Even fashiona
ble weddings take place in the Nation,
t and the event is just as interesting and
i decorous as any similar occasion in the
,■ Slates, and the wedding suits • in ac
, cordance with the strictest dictates of
modern fashion, though it was only in
. 18'iG that a Cherokee woman, for the first
time in the history of her race, put on a
new spring bonnet, which history says
made a profound sensation among her
people. We were informed of a wedding
j that not long since took place in one of
j the Cherokee churches. The bride was
elegantly attired in a handsome silk,
slightly shaded. Iler maids were dressed
in immaculate white. The groomsmen
wore plain black, with white vests and
neckties, and' the ceremony, performed
, by the clergyman, was the same as unites
j couples in the Slates,

An Unpleasant Courting Experience.
A young man named Dixon has jus
had an unpleasant courting experience
in Innishowen, County Donegal, Ireland.
I lis lady love is not only very pretty, but
she is an heiress, her uncle having left her :
a fortune. Moreover she is partial to ;
Dixon. The young man was calling on
the girl one day when lie heard the foot
step's of a couple of rivals, and in sportive
humor he concealed himself in the butter
box. While lie was enjoying the conver
sation the girl's father came along
with a puil of hot water to scald the box.
Before the girl divined his purpose he
dashed the water into the box. The
howl of anguish that arose scared the old
gentleman half to denth, and poor Dixon
was found to be so badly scalded that he
had to >e removed to a hospital.— New
Popularity of Pigeon Flying.
Pigeon flying is growing to be an ab
sorbing amusement in England, particu
larly among the Birmingham laborers.
The spread of the sport lias developed
quite a new branch of railway traffic. It
is the practice of flyers to send their birds
in baskets, addressed to the station mas
ter at a particular station, with the re
quest that he release them, mark on a la
bel the time that they were release*'., and
return the basket. This request is regu
larly granted. The officials rather like .
the work. In cloudy weather porters
have been known to feed birds for three '

The gold is put into a ston<
crucible, melted, and poured into u moulc
which gives it the right width for roll
ing. One hundred dollars' worth of gold
is generally moulded at a time, the weight
being about five ounces. It is then rur
through the rollers, the pressure of which
is so great that the little bar of gold thai
is one inch in width and about three in
ches in length, after being run through
several times, becomes u strip about four
teen yards in length and about the thick
ness of a hair. The strip is then cut into
one inch squares. These squares are put
into what is called a euteh. This cutch
is composed of 180 skins three and a
half inches square. The material that
these skins are made of is an invention ol
French origin, and is kept secret. For
merly vellum was used. A gold square
is placed between each skin, one directly
over the other, until the cutch is filled.
Two parchment bands are put over them
in opposite directions to keep them from
shifting. The cutch is then beaten for
fifteen or twenty minutes with a sixteen
pound hammer. The gold is then taken
out of the skins, quartered by a skewer,
and put into what is called tin; shoder.
The number of skins in a shoder is (ISO.
These skins come from what is called the
bung gut of an ox, one animal furnish
ing but two skins. The shoder skins are
four inches square. They are put be
tween the skins in the same manner as in
the cutch. They are then beaten for one
and a half hours with a ten pound ham
mer, taken out, and again quartered with
a piece of reed. They are then put into
the mould one over the other, us before,
until the !)U0 skins which the mould con
tains are filled. This is beaten with a
hammer weighing seven pounds for three
or four hours. The leaf is then ready to
be trimmed and booked. Before the
beating process the skins are heated and
primed to prevent the leaf from sticking.
Heated presses are used to take the mois
ture from the skins. Each skin is rubbed
with a hare's foot with piaster of Paris
011 both sides before beating Each one
of the first squares of gold beaten out
makes twenty-five leaves, or one book.
The trimming of the leaves before they
ire put into books clone by a sled
shaped machine called a wagon. The
trimming and booking is done mostly by
irirls. The trimmings that arc left from
ihe leaves are scraped together and melted
over. A little salt added makes it
thoroughly clean. The granitp block that
the beating is done on is about three feet
in height, the top surface being ground
3own perfectly smooth, so as to prevent
the blows of the hammer from cuttinq

Lawyer and companion looked at each

"It is due to the counteraction of the
noisy motion on the drum of the car,"
said the aurist, to whom he applied for
information. "The rumble of tin- heavy

vibrate and the afflicted one can hear
quite plainly. Some people think that
they voluntarily raise their voices in a

A Snake's Fatal Love of Music.
On a recent afternoon Miss Annie San

ing Mrs. Dr. Poullain, was in the parlor
playing 011 a piano. She played for |
some time, and upon stopping togo into
another portion of the house, she saw ly

snake. The snake was lying with it
head on its coil watching the piaao, and
there can be no doubt it had been drawn !

A Mennonite's Profitable Conscience.
John Gunderson, a farmer residing in
Worcester township, Montgomery Coun
ty- Penn.. and a devout Mcnnonite, soon
after the rabbit killing season closed last
winter, shot one of the long-eared ani
mals. When lie realized his error he
gave the rabbit to his son, who in turn
sold it to a neighbor. But Guuderson's
mind troubled him. He knew that he
violated a State law and he had no rest.
As time went on, the feeling grew upon
him so much that lie couldn't sleep, and
lie asked some of his neighbors to inform
upon him, so that he could pay the pen
altv and in that manner case his mind.
13ut his neighbors refused to do this, and
as a last resort Farmer Gunderson in
formed upon himseli. The other day he
went to Norristown, and, telling- the
Presiding Judge his crime, the latter
went with him to a magistrate, where
Gunderson swore that he had violated the
law. The magistrate accordingly fined
him .$5. The law, however, says that
half of the fine shall goto the informer.
Gunderson left the office, but soon re-1
turned and claimed the $2.50 due him.
It was paid to him and he again de
parted. In a short time he returned,and
in order that none guilty should escape,
lie lodged information against his son and
neighbor. The tine was imposed and
Gunderson paid the $10; but he claimed
and was allowed the $5 due the inform
ant. The farmer's mind had been eased
and he went to his home with a clear
conscience. If lie can collect the $lO
tine he will be #2.50 ahead of the game.

The Centennial at Philadelphia.
At Philadelphia the centennial anni
versary of the Declaration of Independ
ence was celebrated in 1876 with the first
really successful world's fair ever at
tempted on this side of the Atlantic.
Every preparation was made with care
and forethought. A popular subscrip
tion was started and money poured in
from every part of the country. The
work was really bigun in 1870. Con
gress appropriated $1,500,000, and from
other sources the sum was brought up to
§8,500,000, and the receipts ran up to
about $4,000,000. The display included
exhibits from almost every civilized and
uncivilized nation in the world. Fair
mount Park was visited by very nearly
10,000,000 persons during the days
days of the show, and the result, while
not a monetary success, was in every
other respect more than the most sanguine
had anticipated. Chicago Times.

While going down a steep hill Moses saw
a large fly on the neck of one of the
horses. Il annoyed the man as much as
it did the horse, and the little insect
caused the death of the animal and also
of Moses. Klvifh, in leaning forward to

broke his neck. The horses took fright,
