GIUNTBVILLK, Md., April 14.— Cox cy's army is struggling along over the H miles to Frostburg. The roads are in bad condition and the men dreaded to start from hore. The trip of the .last threu days has been a wonderful test of physical endurance on man and beast. While the men have borne up bravely, even attempting to lieep up their spirits with song and jest while wading in snow and mud, with the storm penetrating their rafrs, the horses have been the greatest sufferers. BOSTON-, April 14.— In an iutervie General Master Workman Sovereign said Coxcy's movement, was the foreboding of an insurrection. Thousands of toilers were watching it, ready to resent any abuse the army may receive from municipal, state or national officials. Tho army was to workingmen to-day, he declared, what John Urown's party was to the slaves before the war. _ _ FACTS BBIEFLY STATED.

ARGENTINE'S ^CATTLE RANGE Six Huodreil Thounuud Square Mllei of Territory for Grazing Furpoies. It is estimated that the pasturage land of the Argentine Republic is abou 000,000 square miles in extent In other words, it is larger than Great Britain, France, Germany, Austria, llung-arj-. Italy, Spain and Portugal combined. The really good agricultural lands of this republic cover an area about equa to that of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, Tennessee, Arkansas Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Mis souri, Iowa and Wisconsin, and are capable of producing" every crop grown in those states. Yet even the cattle which are marketed for beef arc never stall-fed, but arc driven in lank anc tough from the pampas. A while ago the Jiuenos Ayrcs Herald published the following significant item: "One of the prime necessities of th times is tho fattening of cattle for meat. Wo have no beef worthy of tho name, while we have so many cattle that we cannot count them. The other day we heard of a thousand young bul locks which could not be sold for $11.50 per head; yet we have to pay very dear in this city for the very poorest of meat. The fact is that the cattle which reach us are utterly unfit for food, but are good candidates for feeding; and if those who own lands near by would go into tho business of stall-feeding cattle for tho market it would not fail to prove profitable. One reason for this assertion is that the price of good beef is greater here than in the United States, where the prico of land and of food is much greater than in Argentina, and yet where they find it a good business to fatten cattle. It is time that we had done with calling skin and bones beef.' The price that animals bring in Buenos Ayrcs fluctuates with the sea son, but arerages about as follows, reckoning 1 in gold: Milch cows, $10 to $15; working oxen, $10 to $M; beeves, $10 to $18; working mules, $20 to $35; working 1 horses, $10 to $25; harness horses (native), $25 to $40; sheep, from $1 to $1.50, and goats about the same. —Philadelphia Record. ESKIMO WEAPONS. Expert U«e of Them by the Clumsy-Look Ing Nativei of the Far North. To the interesting collection of curiof gathered by Captains Edwards and McDermott, United States inspectors of hulls and boilers, during the last fow years, have lately bee,D added a number of weapons used by the Eskimos In the hunt and chase, and other articles and relics, presented, by various persons in the northwest and British Columbia. The Eskimos' weapons were presented to the inspectors by the widow of the late Capt, John M. Olson, of Astoria, master of the sealer Polar Hear, in accordance with a request which he expressed before his death. The most interesting of these curios is a spear with a poisoned arrow head, which is the most effective of all the weapons usod by tho inhabitants of the "land 01 the midnight sun." The spear entire is about five feet long. It is made oi wood, mounted with bone, in vrhich are finely carved all the fantastic designs characteristic of the Eskimos in this line of work. The arrow Is made in three pieces, two parts wood, and the third, which is the head, of bone dipped in poison. The three pieces are held together by n leather thong, but with a slight movement of the ham! these can be disengaged, leaving the head, when it strikes the animal, curved in its body in »uch manner that it is impossible to disengage it without cutting the skin. When the weapon is used on whale, seal or other water animal a floater, made of the bladder of a. seal, is at- tiii'.ied to the end of the spear, so that the hunter may trace its course and locate his game. The Eskimos have a peculiar way of "shooting" this w«apon The hunter holds in his right hand, high above his head, a short stick, or "gun," with a notch near the top, where the end of the spear u'ts snugly. Taking aim at hia game, he moves his right hand, swiftly, forward, propelling the KNOWLEDGE Brings comfort and improvement and tends to personal enjoyment when rightly used. The many, who live better than others and enjoy life morn, with lesg expenditure, by more promptly adapting the world's best products to the needs of phyoical being, will attest the value to health of the pure liquid laxative principles embraced in the remedy, Syrup of Figs. Its excellence is due to its presenting in the form most acceptable and pleasant to the taste, the refreshing and truly beneficial properties of. ft perfect laxative ; effectually cleansing the system, dispelling colds, headaches and fevers and permanently curing constipation. It has given satisfaction to millions and met wfthtthe approval of the medical profession, because it acts on the AW- nays, Liver and Bowels without weakening them and It IB perfectly free from every objectionable aubstance. .

Hut all ft{*re< that the average Eskimo is a inarlcs man who never fails to hit his mark and who, when so disposed, always provides plenty for his family with his primitive weapons. Sometimes to tliit, spear is attached a rope of leather, one end of which is securely fastened the hunter's arm, so that he may keep hold of his game. Hut this is onlj done on short-distance shots. The weapon used in hunting birds a tripod-shaped spear. This is thrown in the same manner as the poisonec spear. The hunter sneaks within distance of his covey of ptarmigan or other birds, and lets fly his weapon If he be lucky, three birds are the reward of liis skill; if not, one or two. The inspectors have weapons of the above kinds of several sizes, but all used for the same purpose!. Amon^ the other articles are a bell and a pair of leggings finely ornamented with beads, made and worn by the Eskimos, and which they sell to curio seekers for twenty-five dollars; also, a water bag, made of sealskin, a lariat and several varieties of the well-known harpoon. >'ext to the weapons, the skull of a Palouse Indian woman commands attention, for several reasons. The principal one is because her skull is shaped wholly unlike that of the common Palouse, and it is thought that she was a person of high degree— probably a princess, or at least a woman of high birth. From the earliest time in the recollection of the oldest inhabitant—who is still in existence— the Palouse Indians have continued the habit of their forefathers of fiat- toning the rear part of their cranium of their female children of low birth. This was done so that they might be distinguished from the high-horn natives. This woman had a full back head, but a low and retreating forehead.—Portland Oregonian. A Horrible Fate. •"That's awful'" said Mrs, Malaprop, looking up from the paper. "What is?" growled her husband. "They're going to electroplate other man at Sing Sing."—Hallo.
