O'NEILL , Neb. , Aug. 10. Much ex citement is being caused here by rea son of a recent decision of the secre tary of the interior with reference to land allotted to quarter and half- breed Indians. The syllabus of the case referred to is as follows : "Children born of a white man , a citizen of the United States , and an Indian woman , his wife , follow the status of the father in the matter of citizenship and are therefore not enti tled to allotment under section 4 , act of February 8 , 1887 , as amended by the act of February 28 , 1891.

Tweed Responsible for the Tiger. The origin of the tiger as an em blem of Tammany is said byW. . C. Montayne , a coffee and spice dealer in New York , to date from the time when William M. Tweed , then fore man of "Big Six" fire company , took a fancy to a picture of a royal Bengal tiger in his father's store in the ' 50s. Tweed adopted the emblem for the Americus club , and it soon was accept ed 1-y all Tammany. Tweed had the tigti's headwoven in the center of ihe pailor caijjet of the Americus club in its .sporty olub house at Greenwich , Conn. , and it was painted on the old hand engine of Big Six. Pardonable Evasions. Some evasions of the inheritance tax law can hardly be regarded as wholly unpardonable. General 13i Ce , nola , of the New York Metropoli tan Museum of Art , says that Mr. Charles R. Curtis informed him some time ago that he had made provision in his will for a bequest of $10,000 to the museum. Lately Mr. Curtis called again and said : "General , I don't think I wi...

The Silk Hat Issue. ; ' Tho municipal council of the little \French town of Courteuil is discussing an ordinance forbidding the wearing of tall silk hats within its borders. The "otovepipe" is condemned in the argument of the advocates of the ordi nance as a "ridiculous headgear" which by reason of its costliness constitutes a badge of social superiority , and is , therefore , humiliating to those who never wear it. The tall hat , reformers declare , "is used only by artisocrats . who live and grow fat on the sweat of the poor. " A Century's Growth Illnntrated. Only 100 years ago the other day the Thames saw a curious little scene which the newspapers reported as fol lows : "An experiment took place on the river Thames for the purpose of working a barge or any other heavy craft against the tide by means of a steam engine of a very simple con struction.
