says: “A reader whoso concern shall carry

is a matter about which, in the estimation
of the writer, a great deal is to be said. He
will assuredly quickly see that there is but
one entirely satisfactory way of learning
the subject., at lecst feeling it, and that way
lies with cultivation of spiritual." There is

A FISHY OREGON STORY.
What a Truthful Hunter Saw and
What It Was.
From the New York Star.
“I was over on Big Sturgeon Lake look
ing for a duck or a goose dinner, when,
just as I paddled my skiff around a point,
I saw a deer’s horns sticking out of the
water near the shore. I thought it was
a deer swimming across the lake,
and, without stopping to look, blazed
away. I heard some of my shot strike the
horiis, and thon saw them go under. I
thought that singular, but after awhile I
saw them roll up again half a mile off. The
idea of a deer swimming that far under
water was a paralyzer. I rowed out cau
tiously to the horns, and found that they
were sticking out of a sturgeon’s mouth.
He had swallowed the deer, but had
not room for the horns, and was waiting
until he should have digested the animal so
he could spit out the horns. I recognized
the sturgeon at once as ‘Gros \ outre’ a fish l
had known ever since I took my claim
on the island. He was named by a
priest who had been a missionary
among the Indians in Montana. The
fish recognized me, and his eye twinkled
as he rolled up to have a look at me,
and his silvery sides sort of rippled, as if he
was trying to laugh. He evidently realized
the ridiculousness of his situation, but he
probably found it was uncomfortable swim
ming around with the horns under water,
and so turned over to rest. Noyr, the gas
tric juices of the sturgeon are powerful. I
have known them to dissolve™ ax which a
khircpon had swallowed -
“(five us one story at a time,” exclaimed
several of the listeners.
“Well, as I was going to say, it would
not take the sturgeon long to digest the
horns of a deer, but I did not like to see an
old acquaintance in such a fix, so I cut the
horm off. a<l bk*l if old ‘tiros Ventre’
didn’t swim out a piece and rise up about
five feet clean out of the water and make
me one of the gracefullest bows you ever
saw, and then he leaped h.s whole length
out of the water and came down with a
splash which sent the npplea circling to the
fir'best shores of Big Sturgeon Lake.

COURTSHIP IN RUSSIA.
HOW BEAUTIFUL SLAVONIC GIRLS
ARE WOOED AND WON.
The Lover Smothers the Mother With
Soft Words and Pretty Presents and
Finally Wins —The Coy Maiden’s
From the New York Star.
I will tell you a story of lovemaking of
Russia, of which I will endeavor to draw a
pen pictnre and show my American readers
that the young men and maidens of my
country are in no wise different from those
of other and more favored climes. They
are, perhaps, a little more demonstrative,
less given to concealing the feelings of the
heart, and less inclined to regard money as
a necessary consideration in the settlement
of heart affairs. When a Russian girl loves,
it is with her whole heart; her love sur
mounts all obstacles. I speak from ex
It is the custom of the Russian young
folks to meet together by appointment in
the long, stormy winter evenings, selecting
the house of each one in turn. Boys and
girls come gayly dressed in holiday attire,
the latter carrying their looms aiid linen
thread, which they are supposed to convert
into the much prized linen. These pretty
young misses pass the hours in idle gossip
until the time approaches for the arrival of
the sterner sex, when each one hies to her
loom and begins to work most earnestly,
by which means they seek to impress
on the minds of their lovers their
capabilities of becoming good wives and
bousekeeriers; but this feigned industry
does not last long, for when the male mem
bers have entered the chamber work is sus
pended, and pleasure begins by the young
men inviting their fair friends to join them
in forming a circle. This done, they all join
in singing, after which one of the girls
selects her young gentleman (moi muoi).
my love, as she calls him, and leads him
into the middle of the circle, then
walks back and forth, chanting a love
song, in which the rest of the guests join.
In the song usually selected she tells of the
beauty of the lover she has chosen; how
much she loves him; how she would leave
homo and parents, brothers, sisters and
friends, and follow him tho wide world
over. As the song runs, she would follow
him across the seven oceans, or over seven
high mountains, and rest beneath their
shadow, where she could enjoy her happi
So in turn each girl selects her moi miloi
and leads him into the circle, when the same
love chanting is repeated until all the girls
have made their choice. Next in turn come
the young men, who each select a partner
and go through the same performance, the
whole affair terminating with the dancing
of the Russian Cossack.
At the conclusion of this dance each
young peasant escorts the object of his
choice to her home. At these gatherings
they are as free as the birds of the air, and
take for their mate whomsoever they will,
without any regard to a third party. When
the time arrives that a formal declaration is
to be made, the youth, accompanied by
some member or members of his family,
who are supposed to aid materially in ob
taining the parents’ consent, proceed to the
home of his ladylove and there make known
his wishes to the father and mother.
The mother, not at all surprised, usually
reads the young man a long lecture on the
duties and burdens of married life, bewail
ing all the ills aiid speaking of few of the
blessings, and ends by declaring her daugh
ter is too young to marry yet, too young to
be given over to the cruel tyranny of an
exacting husband. She prefers to see her
as free and happy as the birds of her native
woods. All this is but a custom which
must be observed, so fearful are
they that the young man might sup
pose his bride too easily won. The suitor,
further to conciliate the mother, now be
gins to lavish all kinds of presents on her,
according to his means, at the stuno time
telling her how inuoh he love 6 her daughter
andhow happy he will make her darling.
A glowing description of how bright he will
make her future life follows. To his vivid
imagination everything is rainbow-hued,
and in a language so poetical as the
Russian it is grand and impressive to hear
this suitor of the daughter’s haud
pour forth his torrent of eloquent words.
The mother listens attentively to the
burning, soul-stirring language, apparently
weighing in deep thought all lie says, look
ing occasionally at the presents presented to
her, and which 1 much fear are the key
which unlocks the door of her heart. She
finally gives a rather unwilling assent, with
thejproviso if the father itfwilling. This is a
needless precaution on her part, for as a rule
the father is only too willing to ease him
self of the burden of a daughter’s support.
But you will naturally ask where tho
poor victim is all the time. Why! in the
next room, of course, where every word ut
tered by her lover falls like sweet music on
her ears. She understands her mother's tac
tics, and yet it must be with trembling
heart that she awaits the sealing of her fate.
fj£AU preliminaries arranged between
mother and lover, the daughter is called
into the room to receive the par ental bless
ing. instead of which she kioels to her
mother, praying not to be taken from her.
She describes the beauties of her virgin life,
and declares she has no wish to chtuige it,
prefers her freedom to all else, and begs
that her mother will not make for her the
hated red petticoat, which constitutes tho
principal portion of the wardrobe of every
peasant bride. The daughter pleads, tlio
mother caresses, and seeks to persuade her
to accept the lover, to whom but
a short time before she refused to give
her. The mother, while gently stroking
the glossy hair of her child, tries to
persuade her that after all a virgin life is
not the most desirable; that God has placed
her in this world with a mission, which she
must seek to fulfill; that she cannot always
remain at her mother’s side; she must go out
from the parent roof, and make a home for
herself. All these things and many more
are said in vindication of the life apparently
forced upon her. The mother concludes by
repeating to the daughter all the lover has
told her of his bright hopes for the future,
and the sacrifices he is willing to make for
her happiness. The daughter finally yields
under such persuasive words, and who would
not unless it were a heart of adamant?
The young people then kneel to receive
tho parental blessing, which is given with a
great deal of ceremony. Then the priest is
called upon to liestow his blessing, which is
very beautiful and impressive. At its con
clusion he places a ring on thehand of each.
This ceremony is called and is
considered even more sacred marriage
itself. The parents of the engiSlL girl ar
range long tables, on which flwHlaco the
saniovor and summon the neiwTWto shnre
in their rejoicing. The girl prenaßtea, the
first cup of which she bands I
lover, then to her father
and lastly to each or The guests.
This duty performed, she appears to lose all
bashfuinees, and she who but a short time
before bewailed her fate so loudly, now ac
cepts and even glories in the choice she lias
made. To tho world she is oblivious, and
thinks of none but her lover, upon whom
she lavishes all the love of her young heart,
showing by every endearing tern ami ca
ns* how great is’her worship for her hero.
This change in the girl’s manner is not no
ticed by parents or guests, who continue
their tea drinking and gossiping.
These engagement ceremonies are pos
sessed of a weird and impressive grandeur,
which no pen can describe in their realistic
Tiie pretty bit of hypocrisy practiced
both by mother and daughter—the one un
willing to give up her child, the other to
leave her home —is a custom handl'd down
from generation to generation, aiul though
insincere, is full of beauty and pathos. The
custom is purely Slavonic, ancf is accepted
only bv merchants and peasants. The cus
toms ot the nobility are entirely different
from those adopted by tho middle and lower
Now that the engagement has Iwen en

through its devious windings. They are
now free to make their own arrangements
in regard to the marriage, when and where

are considered almost the same as married.
They have altogether a very pleasant time.
PERJURY CHARGED TO A KING.
Attacks Upon Kalakaua and His Cab
inet by a Hawaiian Newspaper.
From the New York Herald.
An outspoken opponent of King Kala
kaua’s government is the Hawaiian Ga
zette, published at Honolulu. A recent
number bristles all over with editorials and
letters attacking the administration of af
In opposition to the claim that the native
Hawaiians jiav the bulk of tho taxes, it is
stated that “The total taxation in ISBI was
$882,356 49;!Jof this sum native Hawaiians
paid $124,081 43, while other nationalities
paid $258,275 06.”
“Like master, like man,” the heads of the
government are alluded to as “steejied in
rascality,” and it is declared no wonder
that "minor lights follow suit,” the inspira
tion for these attacks lieing the disgraceful
state of things at the Reformatory School
alleged by another paper, the Bulletin.
A paragraph alluding to a certain land
transaction states that “from a public
record it was conclusively shown that the
King and his Minister, W. W. Gibson, en
tered into an illegal contract, defying the
express letter of the law which both are
sworn to uphold, and have therefore per
jured themselves.” The same paragraph
alludes to a “bribe given to the King in
connection with the opium license.”
THE GOVERNMENT DECLARED ROTTEN.
The several letters that appear in the issue
are spoken of as showing “how thoroughly
aroused the tax-payers and respectable men
of this community are, and how determined
they are that the present regime of rascality,
knavery and debauchery should be brought
to an end.” The article declares that “from
tho throne downward, with a very few hon
orable exceptions, the whole machinery of
government is rotten, corrupt and filthy,
and the sooner an end is made of it the
Another paragraph speaks of the elite of
the army a.id i ivy as “the most drunken
and thieving 1 aekguards round town.”
“And as tlii: gj go now,” the paragraph
continues, “those aro qualifications which
mark men as belonging to the highest ranks
HOT SHOT FOR HIGH AND LOW.
“We have thieves in our navy, men of no
character in our Ministry, a bribe receiver
on the throne,” is the terse statement em
bodied in an article calling for tho investi
gation of Julius Ivaae, Register of Convey
ances, who, with tho record published of
him, could not, it is declared, “obtain the
post of cashier of a peanut stand." The
declaration is ulso made that “any man with
a keen sense of honor would have called for
investigation long ago, but the Hawaiian
Cabinet has no sense of honor whatever, and
is willing to lie smeared with ill deeds from
head to foot, to connive at any rascality in
others so long as it cun retain office and fill
its pockets out of the public treasury. Every
member of the government stands disgraced
at the present time, and there is not a foreign
office in the world that will not in a few
weeks lie fully acquainted with the details
of the opium bribe.”
