When you go through an Indian camp you can see red and green sacks standing against the sides of the te? pees, carrjed on the backs of little girls by means of a blanket which Is fas? tened at the waist with a broad leath? er belt, or being rocked to aud fro by the wind in the boughs of cottonwood trees. Sometimes, If the camp ls going on a long journey In search of game or for water, or to escape a war party, two of these sacks are fastened to? gether by stout straps and swung over the back of a pony, one dangling on each side, like the baskets on a pack mule. But as a rule the horses arc left for the men and boys to ride, and the pappooses are either carried by the girls or packed away on a "travoise," which ls the only wagon the Indians have, and you will think it a very poor kind of a wagon when you hear how lt is made. The larger "travoises" are made of two cottonwood branches, and the smaller...

For gun-powder has all the attributes of a Jealous und ex? acting deity, and unless lt is treated With due deference it has a habit of puncturing solid stone walls with the bodies of ita devotees and making it? self highly uncomfortable In other ways. So when the workman reaches the mill In the morning he stops in a little vestibule aud brushes his shoos and clothing with great care, remov? ing every particle of sand and grit Usually he wears long robber boots that he may tread softly while in Hie august presence of the gun-powder. In some of the processes he dous a rubber cap and rubber mittens, and he is always exceedingly careful to leave his pipe and matches at homo.
