Abilene Beelector, Thursday, August 18, 1887, HENEY LITTS, Editor. It is said that the people of this country consume about $22,000,000 worth o! patent medicine annually. The site of the city of San Diego, Ccl., comprising a tract of eight hun dred acres, was sold about twenty years ago for 3260.

A ghastly Indian trophy is shown at the war department being a "necklace" of eight human fingers, captured from the Northern Cheyennes in 1876. The necklace originally consisted of eleven fingers, each of which represented a pale face slain by the owner, who was the "big medicine man" of the tribe.

x fc N ) V y BOLD INDIAN RIDERS. Great Feata of Horsemanship 'Witnessed In Chief Friday's Camp. In a letter from Chief Friday's camp General Brisbane writes: "Here we saw many carious scenes and learned much, of Indian life. One day Friday said to me he would like to show off his younj men and let me see how well they could ride. At first I expected some treachery, as the whole herd of ponies was still in the hands of the troops. The old chief, however, was so earnest and apparently honest about it I told the Captain who had the herd in charge, he might let Friday hare fifty ponies for his young men. In about an hour they drew up before the tents in war paint and feathers, and were as fine a set of young fellows as I had ever seen. Hardly one was but six feet in height and beautifully proportioned. They sat their horses like centaurs and were easo and grace itself in the saddle. At a signal from the chief they began their movements with a yell that sent the blood curdling to the hea...

Says the Boston Post: One of the Indiana v.ith Buffalo Bill is named Bed Shirt a:,d it is said Mr. Blaine could hardly refrain from shaking him when he met him. It appears that Mr. Blaine hurried from Ireland, jat which the National League is greatly puzzled. They had hoped that he would deliver two or three speeches, expressing his sym pathy for oppressed Ireland. Mr. Blaine feels more like speaking at a dinner given by some government offi cial. President Cleveland in his last an nual message said : "I think the re duction should be made in revenue de rived from a tax upon the imported necessaries of life. "We thus directly lessen the cost of living in every family of the land, and release to the people in every humble home, a large measure of the rewards of frugal industry.
