FROM  THE   HICKORY  SAPLING  TO THE  POLISHED  BAMBOO. i-row nra Dili, noiivy twelve foot rod of Iznnk Walton to tho modern 4^ ounce split bamliooia certainly a wonderful step. Every season some nmv device has bwn found toiru-prove tho workmanship nnd action, till now the trout rod seems almostt perfect.-New York Times.

Mure.1* tail hair was said to be tho luckiest-why has inner been satisi'aciorily explained by the experK A reel was not used by salmon fi>hers of the olden days, because they had not studied out the device. Imugiuo hooking a big salmon with no reel and with the lino tied to IhobuM. There wns only one thing to be done when tho Ush imtdo up his uaiid to travel ' down stroam; that w�s to throw the rod or I pole into the river and follow on, I Some one found out that It was a good plan ' to curry the lino wound on a spool, or winch, ok it was culled. This was attached to a l>elt around tho waist. By this arrangement a salmon could bo played in pretty much the aauie manner that a kite is played by a boy. THE bl'I.IT UAUBOO. As thn art of angling grew a search was made for new woods, ami lance wood was soon hit ujhjii as an excellent substitute for the old tips, which were of whalebone fastened to the hickory main joint of tho rod. Than pretty much ail the rod was made of lance wood. Then greeuheart was found to bo an improvement upon tho lauco wood,and many flue rods havo been mode of it. Now noib wood is tho rogo next to tho split bamboo. Noib Is an African wood, very tough and of finer grain than tho groonheart. Ho far. it has given general satisfaction when used. Split bamboo for tips and joints has never been improved upon. It is light, springy and strong, and is capable of a good deal of wear and tear. The split bamboo rods now turned out are marvels of workmanship. Made by machinery, their price has come dowu so us to bo within the means of almost every flshermau and if properly taken core of thoy will lost for several years. Those made by hand are, of course, more expensive and more carefully put together. For trout fishing, as neat a fly rod as could be desired is now made, weighing 4}-� ounces. It, is a little over eight feet long. The tips ore made of eight strips of bamboo. Many visitors to tho rodmakers will not believe in tho eight strips of bamboo till u piece is cut through transversely and shown them. The little splinters aro uot as thick as a darning needle, yet when glued and spliced they make tho strongest kind of a tip. Ferules on the rod are of genuine silver, and so aro tho ' guides or rings. A handsome piece of highly polished locust wood or hard rubber forms the swell of the butt, whero it Is grasped In castlnjc. The hand mode split bamboo trout rods of tine finish aro .prided as high us $*bt tnclud-t ing ou extra joint and two tip*. Cheaper rods of just w good material, but looking the fancy finish, will be found as deulrablo on the . water. Extra fine salmon rods of twenty feet cost as muoh a* $100 if one.cares to ox-. peod that. No Cryluc Tolerated. Indian babies are not allowed tocry. When the baby cries something is thought to be the matter with it, and each member of the family tries in vain to quiet it. If all fail, a person who kne^s the baby language is sent for. Among all the tribes are thought to be persons wiio understand tho baby language. The child is always soothed by a sound that resembles that of the wiild in the forest. The cradles are much ornamented and covered with swnthiug bands. The Indians bathe their babies a good deal.-Interview in Philadelphia ledger. Abont Saying No. Wo hear a great deal about a man's love of opposition in affairs of the heart It is true he loves to hoar a woman say no, and enjoys compelling her to change it to yes. But he never attempts it unless he sees "yes" hidden back under her eyelids. Look him boldly in the face with "no" your eyes and on your Hps, and ho will not bother himself to trouble you with a second negative.-Ella Wheeler Wilcox in New York Journal The Influence Hack of th� Snoatfl '111 on This Subject Is Tliut of the Mutinies Valley Monumnntat Asiocifttion-A* In-t�re*titig Chapter of Hintory. (Special Correspondence.] Cincin:!a�i, April 3.-Tho introduction In the United Stater senate sonic days ago by Mr. Sherman of n bill calling for an appropriation for the preservation of certain old forts along the Maumee river, and for the erection of monuments on tho sites of those already deatroyod to make room for the spread of the cities that have grown up around them, opens up an interesting chapter in the history of that part of the old northwest territory. The influence back of the bill is the Maumee Valley Monumental association, an organization with headquarters at Toledo, whose president is Rutherford B. Hayes, who was elected to succeed tho late Chief Justice Waite, who was president at, the time of his death. The secretary is John C. Lee, of Toledo. The vice presidents are Hon. R. S. Robertson, Fort Wayne; Hon. 8. H. Cately, Delta; Hon. R. O. Lemmon, Toledo. R. B. Mitchell, Mnumee, O., is treasurer. Other officers are Hon. Thomas Dunlap, Toledo; Daniel F. Cook, Maumee; J. Austin Scott, Ann Arbor, Mich.; Asher Cook, Perrysburg, O.; Samuel M. Young, Toledo; Reuben B. Mitchell, Maumee; Joel Foot, Tontogany, O.; F. 1\ Randall, Fort Wayne, nnd Foster R. Warren, Syl-vania, O. Tho association has been engaged for Ave years in efforts to secure possession of the most important historical points, such jus forts and battle grounds in tho Maumee valley, and to have them marked by suitable monuments. It has been decided that tho following are worthy of commemoration: Fort Industry,'the site of Tolodo; Fort Miami, near Maumee City; Fort Defiance, at Defiance; Fort Meigs, near Perrysburg; Fort Wayne, at Fort Wayne, Ind.; the battle field of 'alien Timbers, near Waterville, O., and the old burial ground on Pnt-in-Bay island, in Lake Erie. Of these Forts Industry, Miami, Defiance, Meigs and Wayne nnd the battle field of Fallen Timbers were strategic points or points of defense or offense in the victorious campaign1 of "Mad Anthony" Wayne against the Indians in 1794, and all figured conspicuously in the war of 1812. Their location is correctly Indicated on the following map: inscription,  it tho cfty win give tlse I privilege for the use of tho street corner j for the purpose, it ib estimated the monument can be put in position for $0,000. , Fori Miami, which was first established as a trading ptwt in 1080, and occupied for military ptirjioscs subsequently by the British, and abandoned  by thorn after the treaty of 17(15, is tho oldest of | nil these historical points.

It is estimated that the site cau bo purchased for $3,GOO, nnd that $5,000 monument in granite will suffice to mark the location of tho fort. The area embraced by the battle of Fallon Timbers is about twelve and one-third acres, which it is proposed to purchase, at an estimated cost of $100 an acre, and to erect at a conspicuous point granite monument, so as to bring tho total cost within $5,000. Upon the completion of Fort Industry Gen. Wayne led his army hack up the ver to the village of the Miamis, and ieve, on Oct. a fort having been ompleted, fifteen rounds of cannon ere lira! and the fort named Fort Wayne.   It was located on the highest land in the state of Indiana, and this Grace Chnrch Rectory, office hoars 9.to w: so a. has given the name of the "Summit  .- City" to the citv now there.

A considerable portion of the eito of the old fort belongs to the city of Fort Wayne, tho remainder being now occupied by tho New York, Chicago and St, Louis railroad. Except the well no trace of the fort now exists, and the part of he site not occupied by the railroad or the city streets is reduced to a qtaall triangle, which in inclosed by an iron fence. It is proposed to erect within this triangle a monument similar to those sug- ested for the other points of interest. The other two points determined on for commemoration, Fort Meigs and the Put-in-Bay burial ground, belong to the period of the war of 1312, when-the Maumee valley became again the theatre of military operations. Tiy> hero of this cam paigu was Gen. William II. Harrison, ho in February, 1813, erected and es- ablished Fort Meigs, ten mileB from Fort Industry.

After the dpfeat of Gen. St. Clair, Nov. 4, 1790, the Indians, inflamed by hatred aud encouraged by successes, committed the most outrageous depredations and the grossest barbarities on the settlers, Unsuccessful campaigns against them only stimulated t^eir carnage, and in 1793 Gen. Anthony Wuyne was charged with abating it. Ho was a cautious soldier, who waited for advantage and then made bold dashes for victory. His great vigilance won him the name of "Black Snake" from the Indians, and the vigor of his fighting when he was assured of the advantage another of "Hurricane." For the same trait he had long been known as Mad Anthony. Gen. Wayne advanced from Fori Washington (Cincinnati), to Fort Green ville (Greenville, Ohio), whence he sent a detachment to take possession of tb position lost by St. Clair. This was accomplished and a new fort'built called Fort Recovery. Wayne then continued his advance against the village of the Miami tribe, and on Aug, 8,1704, reached the confluence of the Auglaize aud the Miami of the Lakes (Maumee)"' rivers, where lie erected Fori Defiance, giving it a name appropriate to the conditions of its building and destined to perpetuity in the name of the present city on thai te.     ' The traces of this fort are still well defined. It is situated in the ungle of the Maumee and Auglaize rivers, and has been subjected to some injury by the erosion of the waters, which have washed away portions of the northern and eastern salients, and the point is slowly receding. It is proposed to mark the spot by a granite monument, with a suitable inscription, for which it is estimated $5,000 will be sufficient. From Fort Defiance Gen. Wayne, under instructions from Washington, offered the Indians peace. In a council of Indians, Little Turtle, a chief who is said to have been possessed of statesmanship that would have won him fame in diplomatic circles of European courts, advised peaoe. His counsels were overthrown by tho younger chiefs,, who boasted of previous victories. Turtle cautioned them against the new warrior that the Father at Washington had sent against them, but they were obstinate and voted for war. Gen. Wayne advanced and patched his camp near Waterville. The next day (Aug. 20,1704) he gave battle to the Indians, who were intrenched behind some high trees that had been prostrated by a tornado, whence the name of tho Battlo of Fallen Tim bars. The Indians were overwhelmingly defeated, and Gen. Wayne pursued them several miles, even under the guns of the British Fort Miami. Gen. Wayne passed by the fort of Miami, then garrisoned hv the British, and moved down the rive, to tho mouth of Swan creek, where he constructed a military fort, which, owing to the Industry of his army in Its construction, he named Fort Industry. This fort Gun. Wayne garrisonod and l| waa occupied tor a number of years. Ita dimensions were about 200 by 100 feet, and, its site is now in the busiest part of tho city of Toledo, at the in terseotion of Monroe street and Summit avenue. All trace of it was long ago obliterated, but the fact of Its location at the point indicated is preserved in the designation of a block of buildings named Fort Industry bh>ck. It is proposed to murk the sjkjI by the erection � of a granite *�puumei)t witli.u Huiutble of the most splendid specimens of his tribe, celebrated for their physical proportions and  fin� forms-tall, athletic____ and manly, digniiled, graceful, the beau [ ner Main and Bheraan. ideal of an Indian chief." The victory was with Gen. Harrison, and Tecumseh was killed during this war.
