Capt. Thomas Bryno, or “Old
Tommy,” as he was affectionately
called by all his associates, had
at ono time charge of the Tlual-
dais, a tribe of Indians settled in
northwestern Arizona. Old
Tommy, perhaps from his “dolud-
horiu’ tongue,” had an almost
miraeulous ascondanoy over the
chiefs and the head men of this
tribe, and though his native elo
quence was seconded only by the
scantiest allowances of rations
from the subsistence stores of the
camp, ho wits loved and trusted

The ninth district of Carroll
county lies in the extrem nolh-
western part of Carroll and bor
ders on the Alabama line.
A HOUGH REGION.
Just over the line, in Alabama
is Cleburne county, and the part
of the county adjourning the state
line is quite rough, and the ceni-
zens of the mountains near the
state line aic rougher than the
country. Moonshine whisky by
the thousands of gallons is made

AN AERIAL LAKE.
There is in Missouri, a lake
perched on top of a mountain, its
surface from fifty to one hundred
feet below the level of tlie earth
surrounding it, fed by no surface
streams untouched by wind, dead
as the sea of Sodom. There is no
point of equal altidude from
which water could llow within
'hundreds of miles, and yet it has
a periodical rise of thirty feet or
over, which is in no way affected
by the atmospheric conditions in
the country adjacent. It, may

FISHING BY ELECTRICITY.
Attention has been called to
a serious abuse of tho electric
light. The sense of sight is ex
tremely well developed in fishes,
and years ago the Indi ans recog
nized this and attracted fish at
night, to tho point of their spears
by flic glare of torches. AY hen
used along with'tho electric light
most kinds of nets become sim
ply murleous in their effects, for
the brilliancy of tho light, is an
irresistible attraction to the fish.
Salmon fishers and others who
take and pack fish on a large scale
arc resorting to the use of the
electric liglij. for this purpose,
and tho wholesale destruction of
fish is likely to lead to the exter
mination of certain species. The
great injury arising from this
cause consists in the fact that
such quantities of fish are caught
that a large propotion of them
arc wasted, instead of being turn
ed to their legitimate use of foed-
the population of tho coun
try, says Electricity. Tho in
discriminate destruction, of fish in
this way is almost criminal, and
if prompt measures be not taken
for placing it under some sort of
restriction our fish supplies will
in a few years be, if not exhaus
ted, very seriously crippled.
AFTER A BARGAIN.
Tho following incident, related
by the Minneapolis Times, would
fend to show the susceptibility of
tho feminine mind in catching on
to tho “genuine bargains” of
speeiij sale days.
The other day a pretty, well-
dressed little woman, wearing a
soft brown marten cape, rushed
into one of the leading fur stores
on Nieollea avenue and hurriedly
inquired for tho proprietor. Hav
ing found him, she gracefully re
moved the cape from her ; iimil-
dors and blandly asked him what
he would give for it.
“Why,” said the old gentle
man, somewhat taken aback by
his unusual onslaught, “such
dealings as this are not quite in

only last month,” she continued
in a flutter. “Will you givo mo
thirty-seven dollars and fifty
cents for it?” In a way that left

he saw there was no other way
oiitof it, ho called his cashier and
instructed him to pay the money

“No,” she said, her eyes bright
