But this is hardly anything extraordinary, the reader will argue, as there are many stream* lined with, rocks and pebbles.

TIM HIOOX BLOODTH1HSTV Y0&8. Forty years ago the jiala face w.ib unknown in this region, and the groat, poworful n tit ion of the Sioux reigned HUpremo in their vast potaessionfl, littlo dreaming that the day of the whlto man was near at hand to usurp their power and landn. _ The Sioux wero incessantly warring tb�ir old time bloodthirsty foos, tho Crows, whose numbers were overwhelming co'upared to the Sioux forces. The dread news of tbu Crows coming en masse was received one day, and almost immediately the Sioux stronghold was thrown into utter confusion and disorder. They felt in their hearts that this would be the decisive struggle, and that one of the two tribes would be exterminated from tho face of the earth. The Sioux knew full well that they were iio match for. their crafty enTUes, but to fall into their clutch^ meant �i>rso than ordinary death. The horror owrful army. Some of our once trust**! und faithful warriors ore among them. They hovo proven themselves traitors to the blood that binds them to the Sioux. They have Iwtrayed us and we are doomed to die an ignominious death. The Crows will swoop down ti[Km our devoted children and destroy everytiilng in reach. Death and destruction mark their path, They are now but a short distance from Us and taxing their ponies to their utmost speed. We must flea for our lives. Kill yourselves rather than fall olive into their power. You know the result. Red Dog has spoken. Mind his words." lied Dog's prophetic words enveloped the assemblage in somber gloom. Tho braves held a sharp consultation, and a hadty flight from the camping grounds was .teemed meet and timely. The Indians lost no time in packing up all belongings, such as wero ubuulutely necessary, and tho balance- were placed in a heap and a flro sot to it that the revengeful Crows would gain no plunder. The fleeing Sioux reached the shore of t\m Cannon Ball river when the advance guard of tho Crows was discovered on a hilltop not half a mile distant. Further flight was out of tho question, nnd the chiefs ordered a halt for fu rther consultation, at which it was determined to fight tho foo to tho bitter end. Tire OARNON BALL SHOWKIl. The Crows were rapidly approaching, and their exultant howls rang like a death knell to the Sioux. The, savage horde increased and multiplied until there seemed to be no limit, and, shouting tho ominous Crow war song, they dashed pell moll among tho statu . peded Sioux. Then tho hottest contested battJo in thahiBtorv uf Indian wurfnro raged. Tho devoted littlo band of Sioux warriors miraculously held its own for a short while. Surrender meant death in some horrible form, and tho Sioux grimly resolved to fight while a breath of life yet remained hi theii bodies. Their forces wero now slowly givinj way, Soon they would have to succumb. In another minute the entire tribe would be annihilated, lied Dog, tho calm, fearless -medicine man, was almut to give tho signal for every brave, to klUJiimwtlf, when suddenly, without, a tnomont'h warning, a most ex trnordlnary friak of nature hapi>ened. Tho heavens assumed a dull, leaden hue, nnda few drops of rain struggled down. Both antagonistic tribes were effectually rooted to tho ground in terror and amazed as they all gated at toe strange, unaccountable behavior of the elements What could it mean! Day,was instantly turned into a night as dark as ink. The. warriors forgot all about continuing the battle, and prostrated themselves upon the earth, beseeching the Great Spirit to spare their lives.- Boon conntlcia numbers1 of rQunt),^eighty substances began falling; upon the heads of. tho Crows, The Groat Spirit Wait raining cannon balls upon them wltt a-vengeance,;�- The vl vid flashes of Ught-i nine Add the roar of thunder made the spee-tacJe. tb#,,naofe awc inspiring.

After regaiuiug their sennet they fled terror stricken from "the evil spot, and when the sun smiled once more upon tho awful scene it revealed many dead on the ground. Not a single member of tho Bioux tribfc was even scathed by the Tallin, stones. Prom that memorable day to this the Sioux have remained unmolested by the Crows, who firmly believe that ibe Biuux are possessed of supernatural jKmers uud run command the ustiatanco of the Great Hpirit at will. Whether the legend is u dread reality of some terrible hapjHmiug of bygone days or a flimsy fabrication remains yet to bu unraveled, but tho thousand* and thuii^mls of cannon ball stones scattered upon the shores of the ghostly rivulet are tmrely silent though ubundant evidence of an event not chronicled in the put;at of history.

They saturate a number of lumps of sugar with the fluid and carry them about with them. When (as is the case with a whisky drunkard) lhey feel as if they needed a drink, they will take one or two lumps of $U�ur, and, letting it dissolve in the mouth, they will get a sort of an imitation of perfumed whisky and sugar and water. You know, of eoui^e, that the base of the cologne is alcohol, and for most people alcohol is altogether too strong to bo taken raw, and this is one of the reasons why the sugar is used.1'- Boston Globe. -Aon 147, a record which isurpasses that of any other jockey excepting that of Qbslby Barnes.

Professor Scholwisch, the well knowu naturalist of Bavaxin, while traveling with the Stanley exjieditiou ih,' the heart of Africa for the piirpotJo of studying thfe flora and fauna of the dark continent, wax the first v bite man to discover this strange plant One day white resting at a sm-dl village near the foot of Mount MUosls, In tho Umbo-po region, Professor ScbelwWch uuttced a plant with a peculiar steel colored foliage, and on examination it was found tbet the shrub,' although growing like other plants from the soil, was practically composed of Iron. The leaven, though very thin, wero bent with great difficulty, and tho twigs and! branches resisted pressure with a force about t�4';itU to the same amount ot iron, and to secure a leaf it was fvund to be ueoewary to separate It from the bush vith a file. While Professor Schelwisch was digging at the base of this plant for the pnrposu of mak* ing on examination of its roots, the natives crowded around him iu great numbers, gesticulating iu a menacing mrfnner." The professor desisted from his work and the Interpreter was. seut for. H) explained that this was a holy tree and woTnitiped by the natives in their fetich religion as * Qod plant, and that to dig one up would bring ruin and desolation upon the whole vlltage and surrounding country. Professor Scbelwhich offered to buy the plant, arid, taking out a handful of copper coins, gave^hem to the savages, who gladly accepted th� money and distributed it among themselves. The professor then returned to the wor): of digging up the uniquo plant, but had not made any great progress when the natives again set upon him. Through the interpreter tho professor informed them that he had legally bought the plant and intended to remove It As soon as this message was made known to the st vages every one who had received a coin came and dropped tt in the bolo at the base of the shrub. Professor Schelwisch allowed the coins to remain in tho hole and walked away toward the mountain to hunt another specimen. ITS 8TBASOB I'ROrERTira DISCOVERED, Next day, us tho party were preparing to continue the march, the professor was curious to know if the coins had remained undisturbed during tho night by the superstitious natives, abd on approaching the metal plunt was astonished to find it had changed its color completely. .Instead of being a beautll'ul steel color, the stem, leaves and what was exposed of the roots presented the appearoiice of nowly ooiued copper coins and glittered in the morning sunlight like polished geld. Upon examination it was ascertained tfiat during the night the strange plant had absorbed nearly all the copper coinvwltb �hu result of completely changing ita color. What was left of the coins in the holfa showed that they were more than half eaten away or absorbed by the roots of the metal plant Not only was the color changed, but the textr ure of the plant had undergone a similar transformation. It was found that the thin ivy shaped leaves were now easily bent around tho fln^rs, would retain any shape given them and could be readily cut with an ordi:-*ry pair of tciss-ors. Proi'vssor Schelwisch succeeded in surreptitiously secunug several branches of this wonderful meial eating plant, and was also successful in obtaining a good photograph of it. No further trace of the existence of the metal plant was found until the expedition reached the Vniamesi country, when at the base of tho Nkomabakosi mountains a perfect forest of this curious plant was found. This being an uninhabited region no difficulty was encountered in securing specimens to take bock to England. FlltC DOES SOT APFEOT IT. While iu this locality ample opportunity was afforded the members of the expedition to mako an exhaustive study of the habits aud peculiarities of this most remarkable of all species of the vegetable kingdom. By a series of carefully conducted experiments it was found that this plant would feed on auy kiud of metal placed ut its roots and In a few days take on the characteristics of that metal, aud In the cose of tho softer metals t.fteu but a few hours were required to effect a complete metamorphosis of its fiber and color. Being curious to know how fire would affect a growing plant of this species, pre])a-mtions were made for the test. Large quantities of seasoi.-.'d wood were procured and piled iu a long ro^ covering about thirty of the metal plants and a fire kindled at the windward end. Stanley and hi* entire party watched the ex|*irimeut, and had the satin-faction of u.nionstrating that, beyond tho blacKtmiiig of the foliago by smoke, the In-U-w.i- heat to which the metal plant had been snbj..�ted had done no harm to tho plant it> I ="lf. At the ''xm'ration of a week it was found that the ruin had removed nearly all traces of the tii and the plants wero apparently us healthy as uver. Tho roots present peculiarities not found in other plants. Tiiey brunch out from the trunk on all shies like a vino aud are usually from six to eight inches beneath the surface of the soil. Regularly at every seven or eight inches tho root branches and at tills juncture grows a peculiar pair of round, slightly concaved discs, hinged together liko the shells of a clam at the point of juncture with the root. These discs leave their convex sides outward and usually remain above half open until they encounter metal or metal ore, wheu they gradually close, around it and a process pre|udjcos alTJia government kTtcnWs, A* It Is, force had to be used to bring them into the kitchens aid this is not ahray?

While riding in a railroad car trying to read a newspaper by tho uncertain light of the lamp which wes suspended at a tantalising distance from my eyes, aayn Taverner In The Boston Post, a friend who sat next to mo said: "Taverner, old fellow, don't spoil those critical optics of yours by :jsing that wretched apology for a lamp, bit^ suit yourself with thisi" Ho whipped a b'ttle tube out of his pocket which he fastened to my button-hole, and before t could see what he was driving at, a bright light illuminated the newspaper which had buo blurrtrd by tha devious rays from therailroad lamp, "That's. electricity,1' added my friend, with seemingly superfluous frankness, and he then went on to sho',7 how the apparatus worked. It had a storage battery for the motive power aud a reflector to concentrate the light, and the entire weight of the lamp was only one and a half pouuds. I found the electric light somewhat glaring at first, the reflection from the newspaper dazzling my eyes, and the shadows cast giving a sort of dark lantern gloom to outlying objects. But this effect soon wore off, and by adjusting the paper to tho ligjit it was easy for me to rend without experiencing any inconvenience. tjM of Chloroform. A commission of experts of the highest standing, employed by the nixam of Hyderabad to investigate the use of chloroform as an anaesthetic, has just made a report, In which It declares that the danger from the chloroform is not to the heart, as is generally supposed, but to the lungs. It says: "However concentrated the chloroform may be, ft never causes sudden death from stoppage of the heart Chloroform has no power of Increasing the tendency to either shock or syncope during operations. The truth about the fatty heart seems to be that chloroform per bo in no way endangers such a heart, but, on the contrary, by lowering the blood pressure, lessens the work that tho heart has to perform, which is a positive advantage," The practical conclusions of the commi.'slon are that the safe administration of chloroform depends on careful attention to the respiration. Care must bo taken that it is not interfered with, and if by any accident it stops artificial respiration must be instantly begun. Rules on this subject are given, by constant attention to which the commission asserts that chloroform can be given with perfect ease and absolute safety. -New York Sun. Has been aold out.

Dr. Hope, medical officer of health, stated that this was a very large amount of copper, and might prove injurious to the persons eating the peas. Tho defend aut said ho had received a guarantee from tho wholesale dealer that the poas were good, There was a law in France some timo ago which prevented a manufacturer of preserved peas putting more than a certain amount of sulphate of copper In, just sufB cient. for coloring purposes. That law, however, had been rescinded, and during the last five or six months the manufacturers bad been allowed to pnt In any amount they thought proper.
