1 T. ft J) VOLUME YI. INDIAN CORN DANCE. ANNUAL FESTIVAL OF THE ONONDAGA INDIANS. Celebrated on the Reservation Near Syracuse—White Men Admitted Upon the Payment of a Fee—How the Ceremony Has Degenerated* HAT heathen rec t-i on of the blessings of Divine Providence, the an­ nual green corn dance, was held by the Onondaga In­ dians last Sunday, writes a Syracuse, N. Y., correspond­ ent. As is custom­ a it some ceremonies were held in the lat­ ter part of the preceding week, of which the whites were not made ac­ quainted. It is said, and it is undoubt­ edly, true, that the real green-corn dance is held on the quiet—although there is a good deal of noise about it— and that the public ceremony, which al­ ways takes place on Sunday, is to satis­ fy the curiosity of the white's and the mercenary yearnings of the noble red men. The dance was at first fixed for .a week ago Sunday, but was postponed fcr a week. The reason assigned for the delay was that old Chief Daniel La Fort was ill. The ...

She waa happy, as the' birds, and her very heart sung for joy, for was she not on her' way to the dear artist's studio where she spent the happiest hours of the day? Was she not helping to make the beautiful picture which he said was to bring him fame and happi­ ness? And as she thought, her steps grew slower, and the bright, beautiful past rose up before her like a wonder­ ful panorama, each view more entranc­ ing, than the preceding one her memo­ ry went back to that early summer's day, when he had come upon her a^ she sat mending her father's nets on the shore, and had asked her to sit for him each day, while he had put her picture on the canvas with a genius that almost frightened the simple fisher maiden.

"How much is the damage he asked. "Where did ye go?" returned the old t&nn. The young man named the place. "How far do you call that?" "Twelve miles." "Nope," said™ the old man, "it's onlj ten." "I tell you It's twelve good, Ion? miles, and I've been over it timet, enough to know." "H'm. I traveled the road before you was out of dresses. I tell you 'tain't but ten miles."

THE FIRST CREATION. NEW STORY AS TOLD BY THE NINEVEH TABLETS.' The Effect of the Ancient Inscriptions von the Bible Story—Written Thous­ ands of Year* Ago. R. HENRY MAS­ ON BAITM, ^he fa­ mous historical lec­ turer and editor of Monumental Rec­ ords, has furnished the New York Her­ ald with further da­ ta on the finding at Nineveh of tab­ lets pertaining to the creation of the world^ and also the effect of these in­ scriptions upon the Bible. In many respects these tablets corroborate the Hebrew account, as contained in the Bible, but in others they give an entire­ ly new version, and bring forth many fresh and important facts. The tablets were found under the ruins of the great palace of Sennacherib by Professor Smith, the famous English Assyriolo gist, where they had lain hidden from the sight of man, for more than two thousand years.. Sennacherib sent messengers and copyists to all parts of the world to gather up the important documents bearing upon the origin of the world, the b...
