Hole or not; nnd if you do then
"go for it."
There wns n mini in n elory once
liko thie: He was nn inveterate
pnlrniitzer of pilbllo auctions The
cheapness al which Iho things
generally went alwaya tempted
him to buy and he bought and
bought as long na ho htfd n cent
to spend and without regard to
the utility ol his purchases. In
reply to any question on Ihnt
point he would simply say"woll
it will be of use somotime." His
wile had no patience with that
kind of speculation and objected
to it frequently and sometimes
This man one day brought
home an old dingy wig which he
had bought al tho miction. "Seo
here wife" said he '-what I'vo
got; I gave only a shilling for it.
Irwill he of use .'J Belore ho
had lime to finish his usual npol-
ogy Hie woman infuriated it the
folly of her foolish husband
shrieked out '-Usd" "Usel"
"You whelpl" and Hying at him
with blilh hands wns no time in
spreading the baldness of his fore-
head all over tho top of his skull.
Al'r Ihe Hurry was over Iho poor
fellow pioked up' ihe old wig and
drawing it down over his naked
pate muttered Bubouedly ''I was
just going to tell ynu it would be
ot use sometime." The wife
whose wrath wiih elill al white
heal retorted contemptuously
"Yes; you will find it of some use
now bat you oould have gol along
much belter without it it you
had'ul been a loot!"
This slury illustrates first rnto
the practice of our treaty men.
They are always great for treaties;
but when asked what need there
is fur a treaty they can give nono
none al present; they only hope
Ihnt it will be of use sometime In
(he future. And it is pretty cer-
(nin that if we do make a treaty
it will serve a very good purpose
to meet ihe now conditions
brought in upon us by the very
making of the treaty itself; that is
to tay. Hie old wig will be a iweful
nrtiolo when our heads have been
peeled ns Ihe ret-ult of our own'
folly; mid not belore.
Ni; there is no visible need of n
trvnly; none I moan lo eny that
reason nnd good ojuecieuce can en-
dorse. A treaty pimply means
concession; that is n voluntary re-
linquishment of a largd portion ol
our old guaranteed rights for no
other consideration than n similar
precarious guarantee for Hie bal-
ance. This ouncession is oslenei-
bly made lo the government of tiie
United Stales; bul in fact though
indireoily 10 n few powerful pri-
vile powers whose good will it is
deemed to be good policy to court.
The government tukes Iter stand
between us and those privute pow
ers She tells us speaking
through Iho Curtis law and her
ooustiliiltd organs al WuBhingtou
thnt we may havo the privilige if
we choose of making these con-
cessions voluntary by means of an
agreement; but if we fail to do so
these same concessions will be ex-
torted from us by the strong arm
of executive power.
As we have said there is no
rational call for an agreement;
thero is no disputed point in Ihe
problem requiring a settlement or
a resort In a compromise. Our
title In our lands (every inch of
them) is nb clenr as n etinheam.
There U uolhli.g needed In the
premises but limply an executive
aoI of division a fair allotment of
the property. This is what Ihe
Curtis law profeees to do; and we
have nothing io do but stand still
and note the woik ar it goes on
Jl the properly is all divided civ
log every citizen an equal share
without distinction that wiil be
an everlasting end ol the matter.
But if the government should ns
threatened by the Curtis law take
without uur consent a few mil-
lion's worth of i.ur lauds ui d eel
It apart for leiwnsites or njjy other
speculative purpose we oan not
for n moment indulge the thought
that she would oontemplalo so
great a wrong upon us; of course
her purpntoe we aseume would be
in a coord with established law in
such oases; the would ol course
regard herself as justly holdmi to
u'b in damages for Hie full value of
property thus forcibly taken.
Also if .slio takeii our minerals
Irom us without our oonsont it
makes no diflerance what she dues
with them whether she feeds
them away to sale the greedy ap-
petite of moneyed syndicates or
n atwo have a right lo assume
that as a mailer of course she in-
tends to indemnify tu tolholr full
value in cash; nor cm wo suppoBo
that she will insist that tfio little
rental which she may succeed in
urging out of her lessees will be nn
adequate indemnity iy iho Chero-
kees for Hie appropriation of (his

After the caterpillars come thn
genuine silk-spinning spiders. Thesa
nre distinguished from the common
web spinners by the nature of their
product. It Is a true silk strong
claatlc beautifully lustrous. It Is
produced too more abundantly In
proportion to food than the ngrular
wprm filament. Stockings nnd mlt-
tena have lieen knitted of the spider
silk. The only bar to Its production
lu commercial quantities is the war-
like habits of the Insect a. Wherever
three meet there la a battle royal
which ends only with the death or
disabling of all the fighters.
