received from his brother Will recently a very unique specimen of Indian handiwork in the shape of a silver fob chain In the package with it was another very hand some fob with the compliments of Senor Don Jesus youngest son of Manuelito war chief of the Xavajoes The latter fob is made of fine Spanish leather tastily ornamented with golden buttons It was owing tothe diplo macy of Johnny Hall postmaster at Coolidge X M that it was sent and it must have taken considerable grease to induce Senor Don J to part with so valuable an article Hall is an old I C engineer and formerly yanked the throttle between Dubuque and Amboy In a letter which accompanied the package Will says the following of the Xavajoe silversmiths There are only seven silversmiths in the tribe and they are very wealthy The Indians use an immense quantity of Uncle Sams coin in making orna ments The squaws wear heavy brace lets and finger riugs and also strings of beads made round like a bullet The bucks wear silver ear rings putting from seventyfive cents to a dollar in a ring and silver belts often having from twenty to forty dol lars hammered into a belt But the nicest looking thing they make is a silver bridle which are generally valu ed at from to S40 They also or nament their buckskin leggings and moccasins by running a line of silver buttons made from ten cent pieces from their waist to the sole of the foot putting them as close together as they can These silversmiths do not keep a stock of on hand but make trinkets to order If you want anything made out offive dollars you have to give them ten dollars They charge five dollars for doing the work and are very cunning iu sponging some of the other five Let in the Light and Darkness Plies Editor Anent the recent screedof Mr for bare faced assertion in the teeth of facts easily ascertained and abundantly veri equaled only by the cool an dacity with which he affronts the telligence of even the children in our Sunday schools Mark how plain tale reveals the egregious ignorance and palpable recklessness of his non to the truth One of his assertions was there is no proof of the conversion to Christianity of any Hindoo or Mohamm edan in India The facts are these On the night of February 17th 1881 the British Gov ernment took a census of the north west province of India and Oudh There were enrolled 44000000 natives Of these 38137104 were professing Hindoos 5923886 professing Mohamm edans and 13235 professing Christians This is according to the Governmen Census but at the Calcutta missionary conference in 1881 there were report ed 144S1 native converts to Christian ty This among those then living Moreover according to this same gov ernment census of 1881 it appears tha while the Hindoos had gained 4 pei cent and the Mohammedans 10 pel cent since the previous census chris tianity hadl increased 54 per cent it the same time And this gain so far from being confined to localities ex tended to every Province save one Since 18Jl the increase in the num her of native converts to christianit has been far beyond all precedent ii modern missions Whole tribes have accepted Christianity and been baptiz the Teloogoos and other near them I have not at hand theexact figures but thev would more than double 01 those of 1SS1 Those who recall the delighted audiences which everywhere greeted Sheshadrai and Ram CJnmder Bose

Besides this the osses at the St Ansgar and Xewburg nills will swell the total to the amount amed above In its description of he scene the JVeits says At Bell Brothers mill the ice gorg d and went out witb a terrible rush luge cakes of ice pitched tumbled ind crowded along in every conceiva lo shape Without any visible cause ante cakes of ice would suddenly be inrled thirty feet in the air and fall again to be crowded along with the movingmass Both abutments and a considerable portion of the dam were carried away The water has continu ed to wash the dam and adjoining shore ill a largo gap is made At Brushs dam west of town the ice started Saf urday evening and went out witb a rand rush In an instant the splendid hreearched bridge was a mass of ruins At Greene as stated last week the varehouse of S Thomas Co was un dermined and fell The mill dam was also injured The Press says At about noon on Saturday the jorge north began breaking up and the water in less than five minutes rose three or four feet Great fear was low entertained for the safety of the arge iron bridge and the mill property The sight was sublimely grand yet Tear and apprehension were uppermost in the minds of hundreds of excited people who were watching the Word was now received that the water liad overflowed the bank about a quar er of a mile above and that an ava lanche of ice was tearing down the ra vine between the grove and the thick y settled portion of the west side As he bridge across this run near the Catholic church was small a gorge at that point and a destructive overflow were feared Luckily however the ice quickly swept away the bridge and a sufficient opening was torn through the banks to let the gorge pass The bridge at the old lime kiln was also torn away and a clear passage to the river south of town was made At Rockford an iron bridge across Lime Creek costing about 58000 was washed out as was also the west end of Grahams mill dam The damage to the bridge and dam is placed at about 515000 Two spans of the D D railroad bridge at Clarksville over the Shell Rock were carried Fortunately the company have a train on each side of the break and a trans fer of passengers and mail has been made during this week by team around by the wagon bridge The washouts on the BC R Ry at Winslow and north of Vinton were mentioned last week The road was repaired so that trains
