THE "EVENING GAZETTE: FRIDAY, FEBRUABT i. isss, .John Burger has been on the aich Hat for the past two weeks, but is murli improved at, this writing. John P. Hey reports having-done right well on the two car loads of cattle shipped to Chicago last wpek. .Ezra Baer who lives in south Palmyra and who is one 'of the largest bee raisers in this section of the county reports that his boes are keeping well through the winter and all are in good condition. He has only lost two hires out of one hundred and fifty. A good showing, owing to the small amount of honey stored last summer. Frank Snavely has a sore eyp.cauaed by a kernel of corn flying into it the other day while shelling, and he Bays if people don't quit accusing him of belonging to the boxing club at I'enrose he will have the club broken up. He don't want people to think because he carries his eye in a sling that he has had it slugged by a scienced boxer. Uncle Jake Uarmas is considerably under the weather and has been for several weeks. We do not see his pleasant countenance In the store as usual. JYe hope_hls_sickness is not caused by his leaving off chewing tobacco We are sorry to learn that Mrs. Chas. Hey does not improve as fast a her friends had hoped. She is still a sick •woman. 0. G. Wolf one of Jordans good .fanners, and Excellent .highway commissioner lost a valuable, young clydes- dale horse last week, apparently only sick B few hours, but Christ says he is better off now than he was before he lost the horse as he has bought two In the place of the one l>e lost. B;C. Williams was clerk at the Hairs sale on Tuesday. If the snow In the roads could be leveled down sleighing would be good but as it is a person should have his neck and back insured. ;•' W. H, Guinther had no school on " Tuesday, he said he wanted to give his scholars a rest, and so he could take in the big sale at Baer's. The candidates for tax collector in the town of Jordan are thick this Spring and are making their wants known early. They are, this far,. W. F. •Powers.

Grand Mother John reached her With mnjstone on the 15th of this month, and is as full of good qualities as she is of years. She is in good health and her mind is wonderfully clear for one of her age. The Stone School, E K. Jenkins, teacher," loaded up three great sled loads of their scholars on Wednesday, and with B. N. Foster, as pilot, made a full house visit, in the forenoon to the center and in the afternoon to Fairview School, where everybody was glad to see everybody. 'The load containing the girls, driven by Clarence John, had an upset near John Guinther'a, anil the noise they made was more than a flock of geese, and almost equal to the party of serenaders at Henry Detweiler's—such a sled load of fun we seldom .'.. see. drove.

E Hess, is taking time by the forelock. - He bought a lot of cows at the Baer sale, and bought them right, too. no doubt having in his mind ail the while that S20<>,000 milk condensing factory at Dixon. That's right Zaek; be ready to boom when the count! y booms. We rejoice when our frien'Is rejoice, and are glad when they are glad, so of course we were glad when they had a happy time on last Tuesday at our all-time friend,. II. M. Detweiler's, at the wedding of their second daughter, Amelia, of which the GAEKTTK has a full report, so it is not necessary for us to itemize that fact; but what we want to say is that Mr. Detweiler don't get too old to have a little sly fun. It is reported that he helped his son Frank to quietly get from the garret the old base drum for the boys to use with the old kettles and bells to serenade the newly married couple and also the jcouple that_were_niarried_not a long while ago, Win. D.jind his worthy bride. The boys" were orderly under the command of Wm. Maxwell and were invited into the house and treated to all they could eat and to cigars. This is not saying that we approve of charivari parties. CONDENSED NEWS. tAnt.

WHY DOES not some manufacturer make-a soaptliat is cheap in price, and good in quality, has often been asked. Tlw-.f question has been practically answered by Messrs. N. K. Fnirbank & Co., of Chicago, who have happily combined quality and cheapness in the Santa Claus Soap. It washes so well and so easily, that it will not make the weekly washing A CAT astrophe to be dreaded. Santa Claus Soap has been thoroughly tested, and for all kinds of washing, whether linens or laces, dishes or clothes, floors or curtains, knives or sheets, woolens or cottons, it has no equal, and—it is cheap. If you do not want to DIB before ynur time and have life go HARD while you live, avail yourself of whatever lightens and facilitates labor. A'good soap is a household necessity. Wherever Santa Claus Soap has been sold, the testimony is the same, viz.:— "it is the best." Your grocer is an enterprising man and probably has Santa Claus Soap; if he hasn't he'll get it for you. : Special Sale for 2 W eeks. . —; 1 i » «i» • i — E3BQE3E13El.O3CP3g53El.XEB* Cullom or Lincoln from Illinois.

These are called "totem" poles, and are nothing but long sections of the tall trees of the country, Which, after being curved on one Bide, are placed In front of their houses. From a great distance tlioeo make the village, always just above liiis-h water mark ou the seashore, look u» if It had a large fleet of vessels, with t;ivat thick masts, ill its front. , . -• . The curving, while well done as a matter ot workmanship, are ot the most diabolical character, nnil each totem pole looks like n gcnlpinml reprcucntution of so many linear yards of nightmare. Grotesque aud hideous beiiHts, birds and flshea, with abnormal limbs, wings and fins, staring eyes and grinning teeth, are arranged 7 one above tha other, from bottom to. top, like so many imps of Satan trying to reach the sky by climbing on top of each other. Those knowing the subject best say these totem poles are genealogical iccords or family trees. Generally two are in front of each house', one for the man and one for the woman; but where there is only one 1C belongs, as hinted, to (be woman, or the woman's family history. These Indians are divided, socially, into clans, of more or less aristocratic pretensions, and each clan is named after some beast, bird, fish or reptile, which the carvings are supposed to represent. Thus, to take tho totem pole of the woman, the darrtng'at the top represents the clan to which she belongs, as the raven, wolf or whale clan, and by a stretch of the imagination the beast, or what not, can be made out of the sculpture, in most hideous caricature, however. The next below is that of her mother, and so ou down on the woman's side until the grass la reached in some ancient female ancestor, each one changing with the clan to which they belonged ; and sometimes they are .repeatef] consecutively manVitimes, as one wolf <a dogfish following another like a pack tif wolves or a string of flsh. The man's totem begins with himself similar to that of bis spouse, bat here the similarity ceases; for Instead of continuing backwards ou his father's side, to keep up the resemblance, each recurring totem i,n on his mother's side, and representing tlve clans to which she and her female once.-* tors belonged, mukiug both of the to ten poles and their numerous carvings repre sent only the many clans to which tho women belonged, with the single eicep tiou of the one noted, which stands for tin "lord of creation" in the household befori whose door the tot&u pole rears Its quain and curious carved column.—Frederick Schwatku 1» IX'iiiocest'6 Monthly.
