FOR 24 INDIANJUAIDENS.
fjj-s, Thomas Francis Measrher Stands
Sponsor at Their Confirmation.
A letter from the Flathead Indian reser
vation, Northwestern Montana, to the New
york World aays: I came here to see the
modernized red man, transformed by civil
izing influences from tho warlike savage of
the forest to the peaceable tiller of the soil.
The American Indian, though still proud of
hi, paint and feathers, his prismatic blank
ets and vari-colored strings of heads, is fast
robing himself in the habiliments of the
whit,; man, and soon the curling smoke that
ri-vs from the cone-shaiied wigwams along
the banks of the mountain streams will
ascend from the mantel-breasted chimneys
w here the red man, no longer untutored
and ignorant, shall sit around the winter’s
hearth and read to his children the legends
of his forefathers in the long ago. Or may
hap the young brave, from whose breast the
savage instinct of old shall have been extir
pated by the pleasures of the mind, shall
recount by public acclaim the historic scenes
through which his people passed, and tho
dawn of faith ana Christ-anity among
them. Is the picture romantic or improb
able t I saw it yesterday through the lens
o; thought, as 1 beheld the copper-hued
young Indians declaim with grace and spirit
unravel mathematical problems that to me
were full of gordian knots, and breathe
Into sounding brass tho spirit-stirring crea
tions of our patriotic national composers.
Yesterday from far and wide over the
great Northwestern reservation the Indians
came in flies and bauds to celebrate the feast
of St. Ignatius, which, sinoe the adveut of
the mission fathers more than thirty years
ago, has been observed with pomp and cere
mony, roasting and reunion.
The mission proper is twenty miles from
the home of Maj. Ronan, tho Indian agent,
nnd thither we started on the morning of
the 30th. The ride over was through tho
most picturesque canons and valley's of the
Rooky Mountains, along the banks of the
Jocko river, which was bridgeless, and the
treacherous currents of which were forded
if our bronchos with difficulty, Towards
the end of our journey we mounted the
winding, rocky ascent, of a huge gorge, and
after following a rolling country for a few
miles, again mounted a great, large hill, and
there before us, straight across a lieautiful
valley that, steep-descending, stretched lie
neatli our feet, we saw the white cluster of
buildings, with the stars and stripes un
furled overhead. Long rows of trees and
shrubbery stretched out on either side, and
in the background McDonald’s Peaks rose,
Titan-like, above the surrounding ranges.
It, was high noon, yet the gray mists of the
morning still hung heavily over the moun
tains. We could see the evidences of busy
preparation and the moving figures of the
swarthy natives flitting to and fro, as the
arrival of some new party of Indians be
tokened the reunion of warrior friends.
Our own arrival produced no discernible
impression, the lounging Indians being
wrapped seemingly in their own contempla
tions. We put up at the house of Mr.
Alexander Demers, the p>ost-trader, and
during the evening paid our respects to the
missionary fathers and to the Bishop of
Montana, who came over to administer the
sacrament of confirmation to the Indian
children. Here was the scene of some of
the fearless mid untiring labors of the great
Father de Smet, whose salutary teachings
among the tribes of the Northwest, and
whose unquenchable devotion to the amelio
ration of the Indian’s savage state are held
in deathless veneration among all English
The entire settlement was astir when the
earliest gleams of the sun played upon the
tinseled crown of the flag-staff, and by 0
o’clock the church, which held upward of
800 people, was filled to the doorstep with
kneeling postulants, praying aloud in a
kind of chatter peculiar to the Kalispel dia
lect, and which, to the indevour, must have
lieen car-racking. The prayers finally'
ceased in unison and the celebration of the
mass began. The altar was as tastefully
decorated with flowers and plants as any of
the altars of the East, and the music by the
choir of young Indian maidens was rendered
w ith precision and melody. The sermon was
delivered in English by Bishop Brondel;
and below the dais on which he stood, one
of the fathers listened attentively, and, at
the end of every ninth and tenth sentence,
the Bishop paused to allow the interpreter
to translate his utterances. At the conclu
sion of the mass sixteen boys and twenty
four gilds were confirmed by the Bishop.
Mrs. Gen. Thomas Francis Meagher, the
relict of the lamented Irish patriot and
sister of Mrs. S. L. M. Barlow, of New
York, who is traveling through Montana
and who was present, stood sponsor for the
twenty-four young girls. The maidens
were dressed becomingly in white and wore
crowns of flowers and white veils.
*ln the afternoon, the closing exercises of
the school took place and were full of inter
est. A brass hand, consisting of seventeen
nieces, none of the performers being over
16 years of age, played appr<ipriate select i, ms
during the exercises, anil the entire school,
without exception, acquitted themselves
admirably. Comparing their ages with
those of white children, they comported
themselves most creditably. The valedic
tory was delivered by a bright girl of Id or
13 and was well rendered.
Maj. Ronan, who has been among these
Indians for many y'ears, tells me that several
of them are worth snug fortunes, and
enumerated two or three whom ho consid
ered worth $20,000 each in horses and cattle.
The reservation comprises within its limits
1,300,000 acres of the choicest land in Mon
tana. The Indians have a police and judi
cial system of their own. The judiciary
consists nt three of the Indian chiefs. At
the St.. Ignatius Mission there is a printing
establishment, where tho young Indian
kji's are taught to set the type and
•were considerable printing is <lone. I
have seen a dictionary of the Kalisjiel
language arranged in English, which was
printed hy tne boys, and numerous
pamphlets and tracts which have also
emanated from their labors. Hero at the
agency, near the borders of the reservation,
in nearly every Indian home the squaws can
be seen operating sewing machines, while
the husband is engaged on the tillable por
tions of the farm with mo were of the latest
improved design. At the Mission, too the
Indian youth is taughtto do Carpenter work,
!*se tiie farm implements and skill himself
in other useful occupations. Altogether,
tile confederated trilies on the Northwest
reservations may now be considered a do
mesticated and progressive people.
A VISIT TO OUIDA.
A Romance Which Make tho Novelist
the Victim in a Love Story.
A letter from Florence, Italy, to the
Philadelphia iVr.s.s says: Madam: as one of
tlir thousands of Americans who road your
work.-, nnd admire your genius, I am ex
tremely desirous of calling and paying iny
b • poets. .May I not hopio that you will
permit sue this pleasure!
” ith great respect, I am very truly
Jours, M. To Madame de la Rome, Villa
raniiola, via di ISciuidioci.
This note, together with a letter of the
American Consul, I sent by post to “Ouida,"
tin- noted novelist, who live* in the suburbs
ol Florence, two miles without the gate of
“Of course.” said nn acquaintance of
mine to whom I showed a copy of the noto
—an American lady, hut having married a
Florentine, for many years a resident of
rlorenco—• ‘of course she will see you. She
is very vain. Ouida would sec anybody
who wrote her like this—her ‘works and
Renin*,’ of course—but what is this f getting
down to tiie address, “ ‘Madame do lu
Rumor that settles it,” and my friend laid
down the letter and looked ut me as much
as to say, “how could you have been so un
“Betties it; Settles what?” I queried.
“.Settles it that you will never see Ouida.
You have touched her upon her most sensi
tive point. ‘Madame,’ why she will never
Pardon such an oversight.”
“But is she not a madam? Is sho not
“Certainly not. Bit down, though, and
I will tell you all about it.” An interview
at first, hand is Better than one at second
liana; hut one at second hand is Better than
uoue at all. Several days had elapsed and
fb ftre hud come no reply from Ouida.
Mould it not be well to hear what my
friend had to say! I thought so.
“Yon say she is not married,” I said. “I
have heard that she married the Marquis de
la Rome. Is not that true!”
“Not a bit of it. The nearest that Ouida
ever came to getting married was right here
in Florence several years ago. I was living
here at the time and remember the senstv
tion created as if it were yesteriiay. There
was an Italian nobleman who had been
paying her some attentions which she took
to be serious. Ouida may have talent, but
she certainly has no beauty. She is pain
fully homely, nnd moreover, even at the
time of which I am now speaking, she was
long past the mcridiaji of life. The Marquis
was aware of these things, and he made the
mistake of imagining Ouida was aware of
them also. Hi- thought this and did not
believe that Ouida would take his words
seriously. Sho did take his words seriously,
however, and made every preparation for
marrying, having the trousseau prepared
and the other neccessary arrangements
made. Then came the catastrophe, a scene
that would form an admirable chapter in
one of her dramatic novels. Did you think
I was in earnest V asked the Marquis when
pushed to the wall—”
“Was not that a rather brutal way of
putting it?” I interrupted.
“What else could he do? He had not
dreamed that she took the matter seriously;
her actions now showed him his mistake,
and lie was compelled to confess ho had
been ‘trifling’ with her affections. After
the first explosion, Ouida set about devising
a way to he revenged. She bought a villa
adjoining that of the Marquis, and provid
ing a pistol kept it on her hall table, it is
said, with the intention of shooting her
delinquent lover the first time he passed.
Wheth or, when tho decisive moment came
she relented, or whether no decisive
moment came, the Marquis prudently re
maining away, I can not say, but at all
eveqts there was no shooting and no more
sensation that year. Florence, however,
had not heard the last of it, for the next
year her novel, ‘A Winter City,’ was pub
lished and everybody knew that was tho
man~.Gr in which she meant to revenge
herself on the way Florence, or at least one
of the Florentines, had treated her. The
characters in ‘A Winter City’ are portraits
of Florentines, easily recognized, and, I need
scarcely add, not very flattering or pleasing
to the originals.”
“Are her books much read in Italy!”
“No. not all of them. ‘A Winter City’
and ‘Ariadne’ have been translated into
Italian, and are read to considerable extent,
at least in Florenoe. Ido not know that any
other of her novels are translated into
Italian. There may be others, but we do
not see much of them here.”
“Is Ouida much of a society woman ?”
“Well, I can hardly say,” said my friend,
with a peculiar smile. “Men are fond of
her society. She is intellectual, but very
peculiar, and especially since hor ‘Winter
City’ society here has not been any too
cordial in its treatment of her.”
HER DOGS AND DECODLKTTE DRESSES.
“She lives now quite alone, surrounded
hy her dogs, and with one old lady as her
solo companion. Ouida is now somewhere
about 60 years of age, and her solitary mode
of life is beginning to tell on her. There
are many peculiarities—eccentricities I
might call them —such as wearing bright
colored decoilette dresses with her hair
flowing loose, like a girl of 10 instead of a
woman of 60.”
The same afternoon on which this con
versation occurred I took a stroll through
the Porta Ban Frediano and along the via
di Seandicci as far as the Villa Farinola.
There, nestled on the side of a hill, almost
hidden from view by the thick green foliage
of the surrounding gardens, lives the
woman whose books are so widely read, so
widely admired and so widely—
condemned. In what dozen books
can he found as much pessimism, as much
cold, unjust undervaluation of human
nature as is found in her "Princess Naprax
“Ouida’s philosophy?” said my friend—
“lt is detestable. Ouida does not believe in
mankind: no, she believes in—dogs!”
That she believes in dogs is certain, for
her villa is full of them, and from t heir ap
jiearance they must receive no small amount
of affection and care. From the hill near
Ouida’s villa a splendid view of Florence
and the surrounding country is to Vie had.
Indeed, the excellence of the scenery in this
neighborhood is only equaled by the ex
cellence of the arrangements for viewing it.
On every side of Florence there are lovely
heights overlooking the city, and in the
city itself is an enormously high tower,
from the lofty summit of which one can
look down on the streets and houses and
men beneath as on some picture or panor
A STRANGE CASE.
A Cataleptic Recovering From a
Joliet illi.) Special to Olohe-Democrat.
The case of Mrs. John Herliert, a eatn
loptic of seven months’ standing, in this
place, and which has been noted from time
to time, has come to be tho most noted case
on record. For five months Mrs. Herbert
lay in a trance perfectly helpless, eating
nothing hut liquid food, which was forced
down tne throat, never opening tho eyes or
apparently moving a muscle.
Her case attracted the attention of Dr.
Romain J. Curtiss, Surgeon-in-General of St.
Joseph’s Hospital, who had her removed to
the institution over which he presides. Ho
began a treatment of •electric baths, and
the sleeping cataleptic steadily gained in
flesh and strength, but not mentally. She
had been reduced to almost a skeleton.
The correstiondont visited her to-day at
the hospital, and found her slowly improv
ing. She rises up, sits down, and walks
oViedient to the will of Dr. Curtiss, but her
eyeis remain closed, and sho does not utter a
word. She is like a silent gho3t. While
Dr. Curtiss was experimenting with her,
and compelling her, like an automaton, to
obey his will, iie gave the following state
ment, illustrating it with the patient. Dr.
"The patient is certainly one of the most
notable cataleptic* history records. She is
improving uniter treatment: here. Her con
dition, however, is still cataleptic. She lias
gained strength, and walks about, going
whichever way she is led. When walking a
slight pull or touch on her clothing or pr
son will turn hor course. She walks auto
matically when told to walk, and sits down
when told to do so, or when directed by
pulling on her clothing. The cataleptic is
evidently a mind-reader of the most excel
lent type, for she follows her leader with
great skill. The touch of a feather on her
check or clothing or person, and even un
conscious inclinations on the part of the
people around her, will alter her course
when she is walking.”
During the past week the cataleptic has
Begun to show signs of intelligence in her
volition. She has Been detected opening
her eyes and taking a sly look around her.
and has Been seen to smile at a good story.
She also manifests an aversion to her dose
of cod liver oil, and when the oil is brought
near she turns away with an expression of
disgust. When the cataleptic was taken to
the hospital h was so emaciated that her
death was dally cxiected, but, under skill
l ui treatment,‘she has gained so that her re
covery is now hoped for.

THE MORNING NEWS: WEDNESDAY. Al GUST 17, 1887.
COMANCHE PETE’S CONVERSION.
A Religious Exhorter Now But He Used
to Shoot at the Drop of a Kat.
Las Vega* Letter in Kansas City Times.
Something of a sensation lias fieen caused
lately in Now Mexico cowboy society hythe
sudden and complete conversion of Co
manche Pete, one of tho erstwhile wildest,
wickedest, cussedest one of them all. He
was known as a “holy terror,” would shoot
“at the drop of a hat” and had the capacity
of a distillery for ardent spirit*. He is a
changed man now and spends his
time laboring among tne cow
boys, endeavoring to turn them
from their evil ways. He quit drinking,
hut takes “no bluff” from the rougher ele
ment which sometimes endeavors to drown
his voice while he is exhorting. He tolls
them that if they want some pistol play he
is “willin’, and fellers, you know I generally
kills my meat.” He is another Sum Jones
in embryo, has all of the Western dialect,
and uses as illustrations such thing only as
his hearers are familiar with. Hts talk re
cently in Billie & Joe’s saioon may not have
lieen strictly orthodox, but it was impres
sive nnd effective also.
“Fellers, you are mavericks now; there
is no brand on you yet. Your mothers and
sisters and mabba fathers belonged to God’s
outfit, but you strayed away before the
spring rounu-up commenced at home. You
became a maverick, and every outfit has
men out after you to catch and mark you.
God’s outfit has hundreds of men limiting
you, an’ so has old tnan devil. God’s major
domos are kind, good men, who will take
you to a green range, with plenty of pure,
cool water, an’ you’d totter git liis brand on
you right off. You’re dead safe with that
outfit, but. you musn’t monkey along nib
bling at all the green grass you happen to
see along the trail of life. 6ld man devil
will rope and brand you ef you do
and then when the final round-up
comes and they cut out all
brands hut their own you will find
yoursefs browsing around on tho short
burnt ranges of hell. You remember, fel
lers, that dandy green trail that led down
to the Pinevetas, and how Bill Archer fed
his hord ulong there, thinking greeu grass
and shade trees and good water was all
along. You know how they got down into
that canyon and struck only sand and
alkali, and how, before they could get out,
a sand storm struck them and killed mast of
the outfit. Well, that’s the way exactly the
trail is that leads to the ranges of Lucifer’s
outfit. A good many of you are on that
trail now. and you’d bettor turn off
on a side trail. ‘ The devil’s brand
ing pens are built, the brand
ing irons are hot, and you can’t save your
selfs nor turn back if you ever get your
heads in the chutes that lead to the brand
ing pen. You’ll be alkalied, and sand
stormed, and stampeded through the
canyons, and mountains, and pits of hell,
and the heel-fly, and screw-worms, and
blacklegs will torment you as long as time
lasts. You’U be quarantined forever against
entering the pastures of heaven, and will be
held just outside sometimes,-so you can just
look over and see wfiiat you lost hy being
too broncho to allow white herders to ropo
and brand you.”
His talk affects his hearers because it is
evidently sincere and because of its qualnt
ness and strictly “rangish” character. He
may do much good. Who knows just what
instrument God may choose to invite estrays
back to the fold? He certainly has a wide
range to work over and he will find number
less “mavericks” therein.
Dom Pedro and Victor Huge.
From the London Globe.
The Emperor is no stranger to Paris, hav
ing been here several times before. The
last occasion was in 1877. During his pres
ent stay he has several times called to see
M. Georges and Mile. Jeanne Hugo, who
were introduced to him ten years ago when
they wero children, on the" occasion of a
visit to their illustrious grandfather. Of
this visit M. Gustave Rivet gives a very
pretty account which, I believe, has never
before been published. Victor Hugo, as is
well knowoi, would of late yearß never con
descend to go and see anybody who desired
an interview with him, no matter how
exalted or distinguished the personage
night be. To the last he regarded himself
as the greatest luminary of the century, to
whom it was fitting that all should do hom
age. Consequently there was a difficulty in
arranging a meeting between him and his
imperial admirer. Ultimately, it, was set
tled that Victor Hugo should await the Em
peror of Brazil at a certain hour on May 17
in the Senate .House at Ve ’saille*. Owing,
ho wevor, to the famous McMahon crisis of
May 16 the appointment had to be broken.
Determined not to he balked the Emperor
then mode up his mind to call
ot the poet’s house, and Victor
Hugo agreed to receive him, pro
vided lie would come without any suite or
attendants, at 9 o’clock on tho morning of
May 22. Here is M. Gustave Rivet’s report
of the meeting: On slinking hands with our
great poet the Emperor addressed him in
words which should he recorded in history.
He Raid: “Monsieur Victor Hugo, you must
put me at my ease, I feel a little timid."
Victor Hugo then led the Emperor into the
drawing-room, and hade him sit at his side
o i tho sola, at w hich the Empen r remarked
that to lie in such a position was like sitting
on a throne.
The conversation was then begun, in tho
course of which the Emperor showed him
self the friend of enlightenment and prog
ress. Speaking of the other sovereigns of
the time, he said to Victor Hugo: “You
must not be too severe on my colleagues;
they are so surrounded, circumvented and
deceived that they cannot have our ideas."
Victor Hugo replied: “You are an ex
ception * * fortunately.”
Victor Hugo had just published “L’Art
D’Etre Grand-pere.” After having ex
pressed his admiration of this to the poet
and recited several lines, Dom Pedro re
quested the favor of an introduction to
Victor Hugo then called in his grand
“Jeanne,” said the poet, “I present you
to tho Emperor of Brazil.”
“Will you give ma a kiss, MademoiselleF’
said Dom Pedro.
At first Jeanne raised her forehead for the
Emperor to kiss, hut on his asking hor to
embrace him, ended with throwing her
arms round his neck with such vigor that
Victor Hugo burst out laughing and said:
“Why, you want to enjoy the luxury of
strangling an Emperor.”
Victor Hugo then presented his grandson,
Georges. As tho Emperor stroked hiR long
block liair he said: “My boy, there is but
one majesty here—-your grandfather."
Victor Hugo then presented the Emperor
with a copy of “L’Art D’etre Grand-iiere,”
flint writing in it “To Dom Pedro de Alcan
tnrn from Victor Hugo.”
On the conversation being resumed tho
Emperor said: “You are often in my
thoughts. I constantly ask myself, ‘What
is Victor Hugo doing just now!’ I should
like to know how you spend the entire
Tho poet then gave all tho details of his
daily life, beginning with his 6 o’clock ris
ing. “After dejeuner ,” he said, “toward 1
o’clock, Igo out and do what you would
not like to do. 1 got on the omnibus. ’’
“Why not?” replied tho Emperor.
“Surely that would suit mo exactly, to ride
on the imperial*!”
On Victor Hugo inquiring whether Dom
Pedro did not feel anxious at being absent
so long from bis dominions the Emperor re
“No; things go on quite w-01l while lam
away. There are so many tl, >as good and
better than I am.” Ho added; “I am not
losing my time here. I reign over a young
nation, and 1 use my rights for their en
lightenment, improvement and progress.
But I did not menu to use the word ‘rights.’
I mean the power I owe to the chances of
fortune and of birth."
Victor Hugo rejoined: “Sire, yon are a
great citizen. You are the descendant of

ART IN PIANO CASES.
The designs of piano cases are
becoming more 1 wauti ful and ornate
every year. It is becoming an art
in itself—that of designing, carving
and elaborating piano eases. With
the improved machinery of our day
for curving, chasing and polishing,
a piano which now cunts but a few
hundreds, before the war cost thous
ands of dollars.
Not only has the improved ma
chinery of the artisan and the pencil
of the artist been called into requi
sition to produce Alliambrie effects,
but the most beautiful of woods nro
now employed. The old dark rose
wood, while beautiful, will show
dust, linger marks and the slightest
scratch prominently and its polish
is never of long duration. Hut with
the curled French walnut, cherry,
mahogany, light rosewood and satin
wood, the polish is much innro
durable, and certainly gives the
room a much more cheerful aspect
than the dark ami gloomy cases.
The grain of the fancy woixls,
which we have mentioned is simply
beautiful under the mirror-like
polish which is given a piano ease,
and hut few purchasers will tukn
the old style ease if they have an
opportunity of seeing the later and
far more beautiful styles.
We are running the Fancy Wood Cases
extensively this season, having in stock
even at this early date a superb line in
French Walnut, Mahogany, Cherry, Oak
and Light Rosewood.
Call and spend a pleasant hour in our
Cool and Airy Piano Warorooms, testing
and admiring the Magnificent Instruments
