Amrrlra's Natives llenrrltiil.
This description of the natives as they
appeared to the English colonists in
Maryland was written in lOtti:
They are very proper toll men of per
son; swarthy by nature, but much more
by art; painting themselves with colours
in oyle, like a durkn red, which they doe
to keep tho gnatts off. As for their faces
they have other colours at times, us blew
from tho 1100 upward and red down
ward; somewhat contrariwise, in great
varietie and in very gastly manner.
They have no beards till they coiiie to
lie very old, and therefore draw from
each side of their mouthes lines Ut their
eares to represent u lieurd. Their up
parell generally is deere sky ns and some
furre, which they wear liko loose man
tels; and yet under this, about their
middle, all women and men, ut man's
estayte, wero roundo aprons of skyns,
which keeps them decently covered, go
that, without any offense to chant eyes,
we may converse with them.
All the rest of their bodies are nuked,
and at times some of the youngest sort
of both men and women have just noth
ing to cover them. Tlie natural wit of
this nation is very quick and will con
ceive a thing very readily. They excell
in smell nnd taste and have far shurper
sight than wo. If these people were
once Christi-ins (as by some signs we
have reason to think nothing hinders it
but wuut of language), it would be a
right virtuous and renowned nation.

In the old range cuttle boom days,
when money from foreign lands was
pouring into the west like water, there
were a good many sharp tricks prac
ticed in delivering cuttle. It is recalled
that tho Marquis da Mores, who tried to
cut such a conspicuous figure as a revo
Intiouizur of the American meat trade,
and who later became notorious as a
duelist, was badly sold. While in Da
kota he bought 10,000 heud of cattle
from two Englishmen. They were first
class cuttle and cost forty dollars ahead.
When these two Britons delivered tho
cows they worked one of the neatest
"skin" games that was ever beard of.
Medora, you know, sits in a valley, with
table lands en each side.
Well, the Englishmen ran 3.000 head
of cattle in on the marquis and collected
for 10,000. The way they did it was by
running the same 3,000 twice around the
hill, De Mores never "tumbled" until
he had paid his $100,000 and the tnorry
cockneys were bound for South Amer
ica. It was a clear steal of $200,000, but
the marquis didn't make much bone
bout it. He had plenty of money and
didn't care. Chicago Drovers' Journal.

I Two Charge.
There was a suit tried in the United

years ago in which a Baltimore commis

Bryan Grimes, who led the last charge
at Appomattox, was defendant. Judge
Bond, who presided, was strongly anti

sentea Generul Grimes, and in his ap

character and record of his client and
dwelt eloquently on the "last charge at
Appomattox." Coming ont of the court,
he said to the opposing counsel (now
Judge Fuller of tlie United States land

at Appomattox has got mo the jury."
"Yes," said Fuller very quietly; "and
