ELECTRIC SUBWAY FOR MAIL.
Trains In Vienna Will Travel About
I Twenty Miles an Hour.
Plans are now under consideration
for an underground electric railway
In Vienna, Austria, for the transinis
slon of postal matter. It is proposed
to link together the chief postotlice
and sixty-four substations and the
nine railway stations in the city. Let
ters, newspapers and parcels will be
carried over this line instead of in
wagons through the streets. It is esti
mated that the line will take the
place of 450 mail wagons and 700
horses, which now make some 2.500
journeys through the city every day.
The railway will be built in a sub
way five feet high and a little less in
width. Each car will carry eighty
packages, which is equal to the ca
pacity of a one horse mail wagon.
Trains of eight cars will be run every
twenty minutes from half past - in
the morning until 10 o'clock at night.
They will carry motormen, but wilt be
operated from dispatch stations and
will travel about twenty miles an
hour. ___ ___

RACE NEARLY Ri1N
ABORIGINES OF AUSTRALIA FAST
Estimate Made That Another Ccntury
Will See the Last of Perhaps
the Most Ignorant Peo
pie on Earth.
The red Indian in this country is us
ually pictured as a pathetic ins! a,e
of a dying people, yet the zIndian ii ha
incr-eased rather than diminished in
numbers during the last ten years.
On the other hand, several important
races are swiftly passing out of ex
istence and will soon be known to
Of these the most interesting is,
perhaps, the race of aboriginal blac's
of Australia and the islands close to
the smallest of the world's continental
masses of land. Scientists estimate
that another century will see the last
of the Australians.
As far as religious feelings go the
Australian black employs devil wor
ship in its crudest form. The devil, or
"Jingy." as the native term the evil
spirit, is constantly avoided and the
curious fact that the black nevt r steps
in any one camp for more than three
days Is b.tsed on the supposition that
the devil is always on his track hunt
ing him. The number is themystic fig
ure in the dull brains of these nutives.
Thus they stay in each bush camp
for three days. Tlhey dig three graves
for each dead native in order to fool
".Iingy." The body is placed in the
middle grave upon a thick bed of
leaves and the knees are tied up
against the breast with lashings of
tree boughs and tlhe arms are crossed
over the breast.
The head is turned toward the cast
and in this the native worship of the
sun is alone visible. The black man
(f Australia can count up to three,
but beyond that his brain, seems im
possible to lead.
The race is anything but a hand
some one, and is made even horrible
in appearance by deforming customs.
The women show the left shoulder
and breast, which has queer lumps
of flesh, nearly white in color.
Whlen a girl child is born the
women take it and with sharp flints
gash the left shoulder and breast and
white sand is put into the wounds.
On healing these gashes turn almost
white and form hideous lumps. Those
are the distinctive marks of beanIv
and fashion for the woman bltCk of
With the males their prime orna
ment is to wear the thin splinter
bone of the hind leg of the katigaroo.
This is usually four inches long and is
bored straigi,t through the part of
the nose separating the nostrils. This
Is the sign of a bachelor among the
natives. For diet they like the kanga
roo, 'possum, dog, fish, whale, seal,
lizards, grubs and, in fact, almost any
thing wvill do, as these careless, lazy
p)eop)le often starve to 'death where
human beings of even fair inteili
gence would not experience any har-d
ships. When food is plenty they stuff
until ill and waste much.
The weapons used for the chase and
war- are the same and very poor. As
a matter of fact, the Austiralian blacks
never- pmt up any fight against the white
men. 'The boomuerang or- k iley is the
on!y inter-sting weaipon they have,
and that and t he cod.ia or stone hatchet
are the only weapons they had In
