gotten reople A I.egend That Deal.
With the Mrxlran Attcr.
The Bmithminian institntion ha tin
Unrtnkpn a ppmliar work in this locality.
Those peoplo of the world who have pnid
lonptthy visits to that hilly conntry
known as east Tennessee have always
been impressed with the snblimity and
heatity of the mountains, the simplicity
and superstition of the inhabitants and
the general air of sloepy mysterionsness
mrronnding everj-thing. Ask one of
these peoplo where they wonld most ex
pect to find a race of dwarfs or giants
and the reply will he, "In east Tonnes
see." And recent developments seem to
bear them ont, for in the last few years
the remains of people less than three
feet in height have been discovered In
tills country.
On the eastern slope of one of the
peaks of the Great Smoky monntains,
where the first rays of the morning mm
strike, is an ancient burying gronnd, and
such another Vmrying place could not be
fonnd, though tho world be searched, for
not one grave is more than three feet long.
The tombs nro two feet beneath the sur
face and are formed of cement and flr.t
stones, and have defied the ravages of
time to cause them to be destroyed.
Must of thosoexnmined contained a vase,
n few beads and a human skeleton, which
was never more than 86 inches long anil
was thnt of a full grown person.
The natives have a beautiful legend of
the place and my none were interred
here except Indian children, whilo natu
ralists claim the skulls to have reached
their full growth.
But the most interesting account i
that of tho red men who held that coun
try when first settled by whites. Tl: ;
claim that when they came to that sec
tion of country it was peopled by a rr.c
of small, florco men, with red hair: th-it
these dwnrfs waged 11 long and blrcn'v
war with tho Indians, but were fiinily
all killed; that this burying ground vn.
used long before they enine into the rnv.n
try, and (hat those killed in the v..i.
were never buried.
In soino parts of the adjacent moun
tains, high up on the cliffs, are to bo civil
rude drawings of combats between fi.'.iy
grown men and a number of dwarfa. ( )..
account of tho superstitions of tho e;i
TennesKeeans, it is difficult to reach t'u'.i
pigmy cemetery, and almost as much a.i
life is worth to attempt to dig into t;:
graves of the "leetlo peoplo."
. In the mountainous district of one 1
tho southern states, in a bend of one of
the great rivers, is situated a natural
fort, known to tho surrounding inhabit
ants as "Indian Fort." Hurrounded on
three sides by perpendicular cliffs, at
the bottom of which flows tho river,
wide and deep, the only way of approach
la by ascending a stiff declivity from the
open side, near tho summit of which are
still to be seen traces of an ancient em
bankment, almost obliterated by time.
Within the space inclosed by the river
and mbankrucnt have been found u
great many stone and flint implements
of Indian warfare and a few bronzo
axes. There are also a number of tombs,
formed of large flut stones, containing
nothing but dust and dirt at tho pre.-nt.
In the time of the early settlors the
native Indians had a tradition of a great
battle having been fought at this place
years previous to tliolr own timo, in
which an entire race was exterminated.
Tho legend is: The exterminated race.
who wero called "Vorshi)er8 -of tho
Snn," had been gradually driven onth-
wara irom the far north by the Indians.
Beforo reaching tho "Great rivor" (tho
umoj tnoy separated into two divisions.
one going to the sonthwest, tho other go
ing directly south. What became of the
first part is not told iu the legend.
After innumerable battles the fleeing
race made a final tand at Indian Fort
and after a siege of many months, dur
ing ivmcn time the liesieged subsisted on
provisions previously gathered, thoy
were conquered, and every man, woman
and child was killed. Tho legend says
these people cam'e from tho vicinity of
ine great lanes, ana the row bronze im
plements discovered seem to give some
truth to that part of the story.
It is supposed that these people were
me ancestors 01 the JUexic&n Aztoes. and
thot that portion which escaped when the
tribe divided wandered toward the south
west and entered Mexico from the north.
At the time of tho conquest of Mexico by
Corte the Aztecs claimed that they
came from the north, and sun worship
was the national religion.
To investigate these relics of a depart
ed race the Smithsonian officials sent
Professor Snow and a corps of assistant
to the scene. Tennessee Cor. St Louis

Pronunciation of Word. Ending In "Ator.M
There never has beoii any general rale
as to nouna ending in "ator." In Scot
land the moda differed from the English
rule in more usually throwing the ac

his earlier days, having spoken of a cu
rator, making tho word a dactyl, was
interrupted by the judgo before whom
he was pleading with "'Cnra-tor, if

APROPOS OF HOMEMADE CLOTHES.
Mr DnvU tlrrnll. an F.xpprlenre of One or
tho Hoy. In Ilia Native Villa.
"Alie's a growJfc boy now, an I reckon
I'd better cut this suit o' clothes good nil
large to allow for bis fillin out an
lengthening' remarked Mrs. Davis brisk
ly as she stood, shears in hand, in front.
f the dining room table on which tho
rloth for Abe's now suit was spread out.
Abe looked wistfully at his father.
"Well now, Marthy," said Mr. Davis
mildly to his energetic helpmate, "I
dnnno's I'd cut it to much more'n fit
Abe ef I was you. Boys are pooty hard
on their clothes anyway, an I cal'lato
by the time Abe has growed too tight to
be comf table into that snit it'll be about
wore ont."
Mrs. Davis looked doubtfully at her
hnsband. He had not a reputation for
great liberality, yet here he was advo
cating a plan which was almost certain
to result in "a year's waste of good
cloth," for Abo had no younger brother
to take his outgrown clothes.
"Ye see," began Mr. Davis again, feel
ing that he was the object of embarrass
ing scrutiny from his thrifty spouse, "I
alius ree'lect a boy that was raised in
Enderville, not fur from where we lived,
till I was well inter my teens.
"His mother made it a practice to 'al
low on that boy's clothes the whole
Murin time, an it was a dretfnl trial to
him, I can tell ye. I I knew him pooty
well, bein raised in the same town, ye
ee.
"He was a kind of a 'pindlin, lanky
boy, an wouldn't hev looked extry good,
anyway, but his clothes alius hung off'n
him, jest as ef he'd ben left out in tho
rain sometime Bn hed shrunk.
"His mother wa'n't a muster hand tit
cuttin anyway not anywheres near 11s
good as yon be, Marthy," said Mr. Davis,
feeling that here was an opportunity for
a handsome- compliment, which was re
ceived with an nir of conscious worth by
his wife, "an it was a sorrerful sight to
see that boy I
"He never caught up to the size of his
gamiints, to my knowledge; never! ' An
other boys used to poke fun at him con
sid'blo boys whose mothers wasn't quite
so forehanded in their idees and cuttin.
"An I ree'lect my father's once sayiu
to me, referrin to that boy an the way
he looked, that he, viewed it 'more things
was sp'ilcd ollowin than was ever wast
ed makin u good fit.' An he meant it
more ways '11 one. 80, 1 Bay, make Alie's
suit como somewhere near him, an ef
he grows cut'n it 'foro it's wore I'll git
him a new cue."
Mr. Davis went out to tho barn, nnd
Mrs. Davis began to cut out tho new
suit, pinning it on to patient Abo now
nnd then to try the effect.
When she said at last, "I've got to a
place where you can go now," ho hurried
out to his father.
"I'm real obleeged to you, father, fer
what you said," ho remarked, with evi
dent gratitude. "My last suit o' clot lies
was so big fer me that"
"Sho, boy, don't you s'pose I noticed
it?" interrupted Mr. Davis. "Your moth
er's a good hand lit cuttin, but she's got
some notions kind o' like my mother's,
seems't ef.
"An that boy I was tellin you of you
needn't say anythin about it to your
mother but I was that boy m'self, an
there's totno roe'lectiona that stays by
me more'n others'"
Then they each fell to rubbing up
harness, their hearts warm with the
thought of the trial they had in common,
though one had endured it 80 years be
fore the other. Youth a Companion.
Crowth of Klerla Trantlnm.
The growth of elentrio traction in thta
sountry is one of tho most marvelous
Aevelonments of thnmenturv. A lnndlnv
street railway jouixal draws attention
10 ine tact that 111 txo past five years tho
mileage of street railways operated by
electricity has increased from 50 miles to
over 4,000 miles, which is a greater mile
age than that or all tho other street rail
ways in the country operated by both
animal and other forms of motive nwnr
Of .this large total nearly ono-third waa
built in 1803. No estimate bos yet been
given of the aggregate increase in value
in suburban property that haa been im
proved by the running of new electric
lines, tout the amount must be enormons,
as a largo proportion of late installations
nave aeen in BUDurnan districts, partic
ularly in the east.
In Joly, 1800, theatroet railway mileage
of the country was 8.(1.10 miles At. th
present time it reaches a total of 11,653
nmi-g, or an increase 01 o.uuu nines in the
past years, During 1803 there waa an
additional increase of 1,008 milos. Some
of these lines have been introduced in
the most crowded parts of large cities,
where it is admitted that cablo traction
would be more economical. Tho reason
for this lies probably in the fact that it
wonld be far less economical to change
from electrio to cable power simply for
the abort distance than to retain the sys
tem already in operation.
Kngll.lt Common Law an Knemy of Women.
.tuui, carious compendium 01' judicial
and legislative wisdom, the English com
mon law, comes down to us from the
feudal days when those forming tho
militant half of tho human race wero
held to be properly the holders of all
property, becauso they could defend
thoir right to it in buttlo, and therefore
it discriminated in everv nowiihla wuv
against the "distaff lino." This has
been the underlying impulse of every
decision unjust to women. Tho cruel
law Which niadlltllH fatlinrsnlnirnai-Hiaii
of the children was u survival of the
common law, Boatou Woman's Jour-uul.
A Tradition of the l-'fond.
All tho northern coast Indians hnvi
a tradition of a flood which destroyed nil
mankind, except a pair from which tl e
earth was again peopled. Each tril.
gives tlw story a local coloring, but the
plot of tho legend is much the same. Tlu
Leila Coola tradition is as follows:
The creator of tho nniverse, Mes-nn s-la-la-nik,
had great difficulty in the ar
rangement of tho land and water. The
earth jiersisted in sinking ont of sight.
At last he hit upon a plan which worked
very well. Taking along line of twisted
walrus hide ho tied it around the dry
land and fastened the other end to the
corner of the moon. Everything worked
well for along time, but at last the spirit
became very much offended at the action
of mankind, and in a fit of anger ono day
seized his great stono knife and with a

sink into tho sea. Tho angry waves
rushed in torrents up the valleys, and in
a short time nothing was visible except
the peak of a very high mountain.
All mankind perished in the whelming
waters with the exception of two, a man
and his wife, who were out Ashing in a
big canoe. These two succeeded in
reaching the top of the mountain and
proceeded to make themselves at home.
Here they remained for seme time until

"No, 1 won't givo you any money to
get you something to eat," was the reply.
Tho lady mimicked his whine.
Finally sho hired him to carry her um

thither she gave him a dissertation on
labor and its fruits in phrases she thought
he would understand. She advised him
to go into the newspaper business and
loaned him 20 cents to invest in papers,

A recently returned eastern missionary
says that a small, but persistent, vexa
tion in household affairs is the firm be
lief in the transmigration of souls among
one's Buddhist servants and its often
ludicrous consequences. For instance,
once on shipboard the sailors were di
reeled to kill the cockroaches with which
the vessel was infested. This they dared
not do, fearing that some ancestor's spirit
might be imprisoned in that most un
likely form. They approached the ver
min gently, liftod them up on shoets of
paper and dropped them overboard in a
manner almost tender and quite defer
ential. Ono young convert clung to her nowly
mado friend during her last illness wit'a
the constant cry that she feared, when
the end should como, that the old belief
would be too strong for hor, it pressed
so hard upon her that tho soul was des
tined for further earthly life. It was a
cause for great rejoicing at tho mission
station that dissolution came in sleep
ana unattended ny this horror. New

A New Flower
Mary D. Welcome, the Yarmouth (Mo.)
florist, says the flower that will be most
wondered at and admired among the
new fashions Damo Nature has intro
duced this year is tho entirely new type
of zinnias, called tho "crested and curled
zinnias." They originated as a "sport"
on the trial grounds of Henderson, among
a multitude of varieties imported from
Europe with those of homo growth. They
have petals curiously twisted and curled,
after the style of some Jnpancso chrysan
themums and are so unlike the well
known zennia no one would suppose them
to bolong to that plebeian family, origi
nally so unrefined as never to be intro
duced into the nristocratio circle of the
floral kingdom.
Dame Nature took them in hand not
many years ago to see what she could do
to improve their habits and with marked
success. The elegant Tom Thumb, Pig

Friendship lletneen a llorite and a Dog.
A plumber at Narragansett had a horse
tl years old, which was used for carry
ing around bis master's material when
that was nocesrary, but spent most of its
time in a small pasture. A fox terrier,
also belonging to the plumlier, was an in
separable companion of tho old horse.
When the old horse was harnessed to tho
cart the dog was on guard to see that
nothing was stolen from the cart. In
the pasturo the dog was always sniffing
around tho horse and was never so de
lighted as when tho horse would begin to
roll in tho grass, which it often did, ap
parently to please the dog, which wonld
jump about in every direction nnd bark
for pure joy.
At flight when the horse was put in the
barn the dog always entered with its
friend and slept on tho animal's body.
One day the neighbors heard the most
dismal howls coming from the pasture
and found that the old horse had died.
Thero was tho terrier on tho dead body,
howling ont its sorrow and misery. The
dog remained with tho body until it was
removed for burial. New York Tribune.
A Torket l.lfe Having Armri.lil.
lu 1874 Lieutenant Brunei of Dieppe
introduced his pocket lifo saving lines, of
which already upward of 8,3-10 are being
nsed in France, where they now rescue
annually some 2H5 lives. Nevertheless
theso admirable inventions aro almost
unknown in ourempire. Drnnel's small
pocket lino consists of a wooden float,
round which somo 110 feet of stout cord
is wound. Tho other end of the cord
terminates in an etllcient grapnel armed
with four small hooks. The wholo ap
paratus complete weighs only five
ounces nnd is the most convenient of all
life saving lines. Hence I urge its adop
tion everywhere, especially for ofliciuls
nnd others engaged about our coasts and
inland waters. Theso appliances could
be profitably retailed for about Is. Od.

Accidentally Knocked Down by a Panther.
On the anniversary of Washington's
birth Aloxander Rawles, a prominent
landowner and stockman of Anderson
valley, was accidentally knocked down
by a largo 8-foot panther. Kawles'
bruises nro now reported seriouB. His
dogs had treed the beast, and Kawles
went to a neighbor's for a gun. Ho could
find only one cartridge, but with this ho
returned and shot the panther, but only
slightly wounded it. Tho animal sprang
from its perch midst the dogs and soon
stretched one in death. Once in bound
ing backward to avoid the other dogs
the panther accidentally came in contact
with Kawles, who was knocked down.
The panther entirely ignored Rawles
throughout the flght, giving the dogs its
undivided attention, although before and
after his fall Rawles vigorously bela
bored the beast with his gun bnrrel,
which was ruined in the conflict. The
panther's death finally resulted. Whon
Rawles was knocked down, his side
struck a stone, producing serious inter
nal injuries. Cor. San Francisco Chron--icle,
Saved by a Quick Hair Cut.
A young woman was saved In an al
most "miraculous" manner the other
day from almost certain death. She
was walking through a mill at Lewis
ton, Mo., when her hair fell down in
front of a pieco of heavy machinery and,
the ends of the hair caught in some slow
ly revolving cogwheels. The woman1
screamed, but did not have the presence'
of mind to break away at once before
more strands of hair were caught and.
dragged in. She stood there almost nwj;
tionless screaming, while her head was
drawn nearer and nearer to the fatal
wheels. Presently hor cries attracted
the attention of a man, who rushed to
her assistance and severed her hair with
a knife just as her head was approach
ing the wheels. Exchange.
