Jrfj Progress as a Result of Missionaries' Teachings. On Herschel island, where the sun shines continuously for eight weeks In summer, the Eskimos had a SUQ dance, not always clothed in the gmrments of propriety, a writer In an exchange says. They had an Idea that when the aun ! came back its movements were directed by nn invisible power, but they bad no tangible conception of a God. They had- no belief in a.future life, either "of reivard or punishment. Today .they are religious, truthful, kind to their children and to the aged. They' are ambitions to learn; they are practical, ertremely industrious, sanitary in their babits, well clothed end -well housed. Insanity is unknown, but tuberculosis is common-. Tbey, wimle In summer and trap in winter. They are clever in trading, good workers on land, water and ice, and take excellent care of their household effects. Tools, if broken, are neatly repaired. When on Herschel island or at Fort McPherson, they eat the white man's food with grent relish. In summer they eat their flsh and blubber raw and in winter frozen. They like food cookefl, but it is a matter of indifference to them. They will bar- | ter for the -white man's food, eat a I heurty meal of It, ond then go out and j ·eat blabber and raw fish as dessert. | The contents .of a deer's stomach they j consider a great delicacy. i Dough Saved the Ship. j "Saved by a ton of doush" might be I tbe title for an account of tbe adventures of the steamship Armenia In the submarine zone. Tbe vessel was struck ; by a torpedo. Aboard was an armed guard of American seamen under the command of Chief Boatswain's .Mate I Stief Homiak, TJ. S. N. -The naval men ; made all preparations for placing t h e , passengers in lifeboats, for the ship ; bad a wide breach below the watorf line and a second torpedo was momentarily expected; but they did not intend to abandon their vessel until they [ were sure it was going to sink. Goinff! below they succeeded In checking tlie ( inflow of "water to some extent by a ; patcb made of a collision mat and i some pieces of canvas, but there wns i still a formidable leiLk. Thereupon the j Bailors proceeded to smash open a large number of barrels of flour which they found in the hold and shoveled this material into the breach. Soon It was filled with an enormous mass of dough, -which so effectually checked tbe leak that the ship v:as brought into port by .her resourceful crew. U. S. Religious Population. The government does not include religions matters in census figures, so church statistics vary somewhat according to source.
