The Indian of to-day has discarded his primitive weapons of war and adopted tho white man's. An Indian c.in reload an empty rille or revolver shell as well as a white man. How ho dots it is a mystery, J'or the white man needs a special set of tools for the purpose, and the Indian has none that are not improvised. The fact remains, however, and was so well known to Gen. Miles that, when campaigning- after I Gcronimo in 18S(i, he published an order I directing that soldiers should turn over to their officers all empty shells, in ; order that they roi^-lit not be left on tho ground and utilized by the Apaches. The bow is used in war when a steal thy attack is meditated, and quite generally in hunting-, for there it answers as well and is more economical. The degree of skill attained by the Indian in archery is truly astonishing-, but it is tho result oC long- and constant^ practice. The Indian boy's ilrst lesson is to shoot with a small bow anil blunt arrow. Finally he receives the strong 1 bow, and with it fits himself for war. Thcsu latter are powerful weapons. Out; that an Indian would, \vith tho g-rcatust case, draw to tin'. 1 arrow's head, could scarcely be bent four inches by a white man. Tlu'y will send ur.i arrow five hundred yards, :i3id put it through a board an inch thick. On one occasion a man's skull was found transfixed to a tree: l>,y an arrow, which had "-one completely through the bones and itnbcililnd itself so dcoply in the wood as to sustain the weight <>'!' the head. Jle had probably been tied up to a tree anil shot. The Sioux make the bost bows. Cedar and hickory arc fa^ortli; woods. The wood is carefully .seasouetl by being- hung', sometimes for months, just out of reach of the llamcs of the tepee fire. The bow is four foot long anil an inch thick in the middle. A warrior, with a ICOPTRIGHT, 1895.1 LL. flay thy wings have fanned At that far height the oold. thin atmosphere, Yet sink not,weary, to the welcome l»nd, Though the dork I night be cear." | George Du j Maurier is never weary of quoting these <i'f lines, lines which, in the de Mnsset French he loves to write, he asserts to ha'vc a strange, uncanny fascination for him when he looks about him from' some immense height. Du Maurier says that Goethe conquered vertigo by ascending to the roofs of towering structures and looking- about him, but he wonders how the author of Faust resisted the impulse Jo leap out into space. The author of Trilby lias quite an essay on the- subject in the pretty collection of literary bric-a-brac written in French years j ago. For Du Maurior wroto for his bread and butter long before ho took permanently to the pencil, but only the French public knew him. It surprises the Gallic readers to find thoir Du Maurier now hailfcd as an artist turned author. To them he is an author turned artist. But that, as Thackeray would say, is a digression. Du Maurier can only be brought into court on the plea of his connection with the theme of bird's-cyo views from the loftiest structures with which mau has yet wounded the amour propro of the hills. Some opponents of tho extreme would prohibit the skyscrapers. What would they say of that towering structure, tho highest yet erected in New York, the new building- 11 Is very strange, the psychological as -well as the physical effect of a vast heig-ht upon a human being. One of the-greatest experts in mental healing in this land, Dr. S. Weir Mitchell, half given his attention to the mental influences upon men c and women of constant sojourn in the human hives that tower in every city nowadays. It is a fact that to look out of a window, day after day, that affords a view, unimpeded, ol miles and miles of streets, will in time seriously affect the brain. That is because the psychological effect is very direct. The mind is deluged-with new impressions. It is almost like the crisis of a man born blind and restored to sight in a flash. What must be the effect upon the men whose livelihood is gained by toiling upon the summits of these pelions of architecture? They gain courage for one thing. On the Tract society budding these men are now gyrating hero and there on dizzy distances, splicing, nailing, running, shouting, as if a step downward meant getting off a log instead of descending plumb from I a steeple. As for the casual visitor, the eifect upon him is eerie. Miles and i miles of st.rcet, brick, stone, mortar, . river and even ocean, when the day is filuar, sprawn away to the sky like traveling herds. Everything seems to be walking slou-Jy away, and the sail- I ing clouds seem empty chariots hark- ) ing back for more passengers. | So much fur the objective aspect of it. Subjectively, the effect is baflling to all utttsmpts at portrayal. One sucl- dudly linds out that there never was a J-'eeksnilf, The big city one ascended to such n height to see i.s not a big city. Is'ow York- becomes a lot of buildings, precise!}- a.s the new philosophy calls the social organism just a lot of people. The thought that when this vast edifice is completed its h-mdreds of offices will be the scene of the day's labor of thousands of people, means that the average mental psychosis, if one may coin the term of so many people, will be gradually but surely changed. It mav seem incredible to many to assert that only to spend four hours a day in such a building for a year would modify the theological .opinions of any man.

The oroivs make bows of elk horn, each bow requiring 1 four pieces, nicely fitted to each other and spliced and wrapped together. When ornamented, carved and painted, these bows are beautiful, and readily sell for tweuty- five or fifty dollars. It takes an Indian about three mo'nths to make one. Heforc they came much in contact with the whites the Indians frequently used poisoned arrowheads. The Shoshones made their poison of ants, dried and' powdered, and mixed with the spleen of some animal. The mixture was then placed in the sun and allowed to decay. The result was such a deadly poison that if the arrow ever broke a person's skiu it was sure to produce death. I Arrows are made very carefully, for ipon their construction depends the jowman's success. Three or four arC'the imit of a day's work, even when the rough material is at hand. ThebrancJies rom which they are made are cut in he fall, when the sup is not running, ,nd are tied up in bundles, so they will not warp. They are then hung up in the tepee, in a similar manner to the bow wood. The shaft is visually channeled,' or grooved, so as to allow the flow of blood from the wound. Arrows pertaining to different tribes may be distinguished by the export after examination of tho feathering-, painting or carving. Indeed, it is said that individuals of the same tribe can tell each other's arrows in the same way. The tomahawk and war club are hardly used at all. Thoir place h:is boon taken by the knife, one or more being always carried by a wild Indian in a sheath attached to his bolt. Used principally for skinning 1 guae, these knives are nevertheless, at close quarters, deadly weapons of attack or defense. They are also used for scalping. - is Tho fac-simile signature of Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria. WORLD I For keeping the System In a Healthy Condition. CURES Headache.

They step from beam to bo;im with the temerity of mountain goats or Alpine guides. They are always carefully selected by the contractors. Occasionally it is asserted | that these brave follows are poorly ( paid for such risky toil. The reverse is | the case. It i.s a rule in the building j trade to fight shy of a. contractor who | Joses a man in the course of constrnc- ' tion of an architectural monster. It is. i in the superstition of the trade, a, sign of bad luck for the building-. Its offices •will not rent well, or the ghost of the dead toiler will always haunt it. Be this as it may, the odium attaching to contractor and building after a fatal accident, has prompted extreme caution in the selection of the men who go up to these far heights. Such alaborer must be known to be careful, expert in his trade, slow to take a risk-, quick of eye and not easily '"phased"' in an emergency. Forsudden and extreme are the emergencies arising every day on these mountain heights. A beam falls out of place, a rope slacks suddenly or an order is misunderstood. Again, some : monster beam must be pet in position, j and the patient v::re of many men is es- ' .sentiul. They must cooperate ai;d b<» ' well known to each other.

It was an idea, of Faraday :h:it the magnetism ill a permanent m.'ig:K-t would l be increased at very low temperatures, and experiments with co;n;>;:n:tively li>\v temperatures had rather nega- tived Faraday's suggestion, but Prof. De-war has completely verified the opinion of thu famous savant, having shown that :i mag-net at the extremely low temperature made possible by the liquid air had its power increased by about, fifty per cent. \'ery low temperature was shown also to have a remarkable effect upon the color of many bodies. For example, the brilliant scarlet or vcnaillion and mercuric iodide is reduced under its influence to a pale orange, the original color returning- with the rise of the temperature. FOUR HUNDRED BELOV/ Curious KfTcct ol Such Tciiipf-rrUare on Iron nod Culi)i-i>Four hundred and twenty-four degrees Fahrenheit below zero! Just what this means it is almost impossible to imagine, and yet, says Osier's Magazine, it is one of the temperatures which have beea reached and used in laboratory research, and has been made the subject of some highly interesting i experiments and explanations by Prof. J Dewar before the British Royal icstitu- ' tion. Four hundred degrees below . zero is not an everyday temperature, I nor can it be reached by more every- j day means than the erpansion of liquid air,-which latter Prof. Dewar haa succeeded in producing, in comparatively large quantities, and in storing 1 by novel and ingenious methods, to be used as required in the study of matter at abnormally low temperature, exactly as a spirit lamp or a Bunsen burner is used in. studying the properties of different bodies at the higher temperatures. The tensile strength of iron at four hundred degrees below zero is jnst twice what it..is at sixty degrees Afraid at tho Ilattler. The instinct of self-preservation is. strong and automatic. It works independently of rea-sor and knowledge, but even against their teaching's. The Cincinnati Enquirer tells a .story which illustrates these assertions: A mail on a Lake Huron steamer had the only specimen of black rattlesnake I had ever met. with. It was about the size of an ordinary gnrtersnakc and very vicious. It was confined in a strong box covered with thick plate glass. VVhen anyone •would touch the glass-•.•ith bis finger the snake would strike the under side opposite the linger -a.s qaickly as. a. stroke uf lightning. The experimenter would always jerk away as suddenly. • There v--:t>> not a, man on board, however innscslar and free from nervousness, who could keep his finger i,o the glass when the snake would, strike, al- j though knowing that it could not pos- j sibly tor.eh him. Strong men would j try it again and again, certain of their : ability to endure the test, bat with the i same result. —Whatever becomes of my body or my estate.
