Before the advent of the Russians in Alaska, and before the occasional British and American trading vessels furnished those native people with iron and steel working tools, the only implements they employed in digging out canoes from solid logs were rude adzes, or axes of flint or obsidian. Even now, when all kinds of iron or steel tools are within easy reach, they employ only a small adze, with which the greater part of the work is done. The flight of time is of little importance to them; and they, therefore, devote more of it and of physical energy to the production of a canoe than a white man would care to devote. If one has plenty of loisuro it is an interesting thing to watch a native shaping a canoe from the moment the tree from which it is made has been rolled upon the beach in front of the village until it is finally completed. Frequently the yellow cedar tree fit for a canoe has to bo floated in the straits or narrow channels between the islands for many miles, after having been felled with great difficulty on a 6tecp mountain Bide. When a canoe capable of carrying oight or ten persons is wanted, that is, ono about forty feet long, the tree is placed upon the beach in front of the villago, and there the builder works patiently and deftly for months at his task. He make no marks and draws no lines to which to work, but directs the small adze used in hewing by sight and hand alone. First ho cuts away the outsido in small chips, until ho has it smoothly dressed; then he turns his attention to tho inside, excavating the interior until he ha reduced the sides to tho uniform thickness of about an inch and a quarter. Then tho most difficult and delicate task remains to bo performed, that is, to impart tho graceful and delicato curves for which this kind of craft is noted. This is done by a primitive process. The cavity made by hewing out tho interior wood is entirely filled with water and tho incomplete canoo covered closely with hemlock bark, old sailcloth, blankets, or with anything else of like kind ; and red-hot stones aro thrown' into the water to generate steam to soften the wooden sides. ' Pieces of wood aro placed crosswise of the interior, and near tho waist, to assist in gradually swelling or bulging out tho sides, in conformity to the design. It takes weeks frequently of patient endeavor to give the canoe the proper shape and curves by this process, but when finished no trained eye can detect any imperfection in tho curves or the sides. After the requisite shape is thus given to tho craft, tho water is turned out. The stays are allowed to remain, so that when the wood dries, St retains tho shape given it in the iteaming process. These large canoes, says the New York Tribune, have been generally of two kinds, the great war canoe and tho one used for ordinary purposes of traveling, hunting and fishing. They are all painted black; but the war canoe is embellishod fore and aft with hideously carved figures representing the totems of the village or family to which the owner belongs. TOWN TERRORIZED. Let all Epwortii Leaguers remember that the Ep worth League Ttaining Assembly Resort, located at Ludington on Lake Michigan, will soon be opened for the season of 1895. It is to be one of the great features in the outings of the League for this summer. This ideal summer resort is far H.noiirdi north to psemw the trying heat of summer but not so far north as to be subject to the chilly winds of more nothern points. The situation uuu iiiuLiim ui tuc f rounds are indescribably eautiful. Take the Flint & Pere Marquette Railroad from its various junction points with other Roads in the State of Michigan, or its Steamers from Milwaukee or Manitowoc. Through trains, parlor cars and the finest train service. A steam tram road will take passengers from the Railroad Station and Docks direct to the grounds. For further information, apply to A. PATIARCHE, Traffic Manager. MASKED MEN SCARE THE PEOPLE OF LEESVILLE. They Hlow Open tho Safe of Allchael T. Buckley and Wreck the Uuildlng- Only 53 In Cash Secured The People Terrorized by a FuillMJo of Pistol Shot. Dktkoit, Juno 3. Michael J. Buckley, who occupies the largest brick resldenco in Loosvillo, ten mlloa from this city, is well-to-do, and recently purchased a safe in which to keep his private papers. About 8:30 o'elook In tho morning Buckley and hU neighbors wero awakened by a fusillade of pistol shots, some in tho houso in which he lived. With Nicolas Kramer and Patrick McCarty he went to Investigate and was confronted by six or seven maskod men, all of whom had revolvers. They demanded of Buckley the combination of tho s.ifo, and after some hesitation ho told them. They then drovo Buckley and his companions to an upper room, anil while part of tho gang was trying th'o combination of tho safu the rest walked up and down tho streot, firing their revolvers to keep tho roaidonts indoors. By this timo everybody in tho village was awake, but not ono of thorn had tho pluck to po out and make a stand against tho robbers. A tremendous explosion was hoard, but still no ono dared venturo from the houses. A short session of quiet, and then with a parting fusillade tho robbers left the town in tho direction of this city. Investigation showed that Buckley's grocery storo was completely wreckod. Tho burglars had evidently been unablo to work tho combination and had drilled tho safe and blown th door off, securing (55 in cash and valuable papers. They left tholr tools behind. Buckley's houso shows tho mark? of twenty bullets. BETTER HEED THE WARNING. ThU Woman Would Make a Had Mother-IilLiiw for Winters. Detroit, May oi).

A Lady of the Pine Tree State Tells of the Experience of Herself and Her Son Willing to Make Affidavit to the Truth of Her Story. From the Courier-Herald, Haginaw, Mich. not appeared since. I owo my health, my life to Dr. Williams' Pink Pills. This is not tho only cure that has been effec ted in our household by this wonderful discovery. A hhort time since my little boy John was afflicted with St. Vitus' dance. He could not walk across the room without assistance, in fact he would full all over himself. We adopted what we knew to be a certain cure as evidenced by my own case, and after taking a few boxes of Dr. Williams' rink Tills, St. Vitus' dance entirely left him, and no trace of the affliction is left. These pills are worth their weight in gold. You may say in this connection that I am willing at any time to make affidavit to the truth of these statements, and furthermore I will answer any communication concerning my case, as I consider it' nothing more than right and just that I should assist suffering humanity." Since the above interview with Mrs. Coulter tho following letters have come to hand : Dover, Clare Co., Mich. Dear Sirs; 1 send you herewith a letter from William D.Wallace of this city, which explains itself. There are quite a number of others also who have been using Pink Pills with marked benefit, and 1 will send you their iinmcs in a few weeks. Mr. Win. Dennis told ine, and I know it to be a fact, that his daughter had St. Vitus' dance for over two years and he had spent a large sum of money for doctors, etc., but she received no benefit. As a last resort, he got two boxes of Pink Pills and it cured her. She is now sound and well. A Mrs. liowes, also a rcsi-dent of this place, told me that her daughter had caught cold at a critical time in lite and was down bedfast and doctored about six months, but she constantly grew worse. Finally she commenced the use of Pink Pills, and before she had used two boxes she was cured. Mrs. Gordon has used Pink Several days ago a representative of the Courier-Herald was called to Dover, Clare County, Michigan, to investigate and report what was purported to be a marvelous occurrence. In order to reach Dover it is necessary to go to Clare by rail and thence by team. After a drivo of about fifteen miles into the country the reporter proceeded to find his item of interest which was not an arduous tusk, for the first man met knew very well indeed the subject of this article, Mrs. Sarah E. Coulter. Everybody in Clare County knows the Coulter family, if not personally, by the sickness that has brought poverty into their home and made them prominent figures in the community. As the scribe knocked at the door of their residence he was met by Mrs. Coulter who, upon learning his mission, extended a hearty welcome and the following interview took place. "I understand, Mrs. Coulter, that you I have been close to death on several occa sions, and that through certain means have been, figuratively speaking, resurrected. Have you any objections to giving nie, in brief, a short review of the circumstances?" "Certainly not," quickly responded the lady, "I will be only too pleased to tell the whole story so that it may be read by others: "About fourteen years ago we decided to take up our abode in Dover and everything went along smoothly for several years, business progressed and, being of a saving temperament, we accumulated quite an amount. Our family increased as the years rolled by and we now have five children living, the oldest fifteen, youngest three; but sickness made its way into our household, and doctors' bills Hooded upon us, until we have nothing left but our homo and these sweet children. Everything went to satisfy the claims of physicians. "About three years ago I laid a miserable feeling at the back of my cars, my right hand became paralyzed, and the paralysis extended to my arm and throat, and would affect my head and eyes, sometimes for days I would lose my sight, my face was deformed, lifeless as it were, my nose was drawn to one side, and I presented a pitiable appearance and never expecting to regain my natural facial expressions. I employed the best physicians that could be procured expending thousands of dollars for their services, but could not obtain relief. At last, they stated my case was beyond the reach of medical skill, and it would be but a short time until the end would come. This certainly was not very encouraging to me, but I never gave up hope. In connection with receiving the attendance of physicians I have tried every medicine known to the apothecary but never received any relief until Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People came to my assistance. Before I had taken half of the first box the deformity in my face had left me, and before four boxes had been consumed the paralysis had disappeared entirely and much to my surprise I felt like a new woman. I have not taken any medicine since last spring, just about a year ago, and my trouble has Pills and sneaks well of them, and I, for myself, think that Dr. Williams5 Pink Pills arc just the very best thing out, and I sincerely hope thnt they will find their way to many afflicted homes and take with them the blessing that they brought to mine. Yours respectfully, Mils. Sarah E. Cor we r. Dover, Clark Co., Mich. DrarSirs: This is to certify that I have used Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for rheumatism and have received great benefit from tlieni. My general health has been better than for years. 1 think they are all that is claimed for then). Yours truly, William D. Wallace. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People have an enormous sale.
