Supervisor Shipman called atten

He knew the legislature would re

he thought the claim should be

There was a disposition to have

3. Kat at regular hours.

5. Avoid as far as possible tak

the open air. Bicycle and horse

Women outnumber men in our
own country, says London Tit-Bits,
and it is a common complaint in
many Biitish towns that "there arc
no men." In watering places like
Bournemouth and Torquay the
number of women residents so
greatly exceeds that of men that
there is very real ground for this
complaint. Yet within thirty miles
of Torquay stands a town, complete
with railway station, post, telegraph
and shops, which, though not ex
clusively inhabited by men, has yet
fully ten times as many males as
female residents. This is Prince
town, 1,400 feet above the sea on
the ridge of Dartmoor. While the
town proper has but 300 to 400 in
habitants of whom rather less than
half are women, there are nearly
1,000 convicts, all men, to say
nothing of a large number of ward
ers, a comparatively small propor
tion of whom arc married.
With the exception of one or
two temporary villages, built of tin
or canvass, in which arc housed
navvies engaged on new water
works and railways, there are no
town or villages in these islands in
which women do not find a home.
Elsewhere, however, there are se
veral such curious settlements.
One is to be tound in Utah, sure
ly the last part of the world where
one would expect to sec a city with
out women. Its name is Sunny
side, and it is inhabited by some
400 men who work in the new col
lieries recently established there.
Most of the men arc married, yet
on no account are they permitted
to bring their wives into the village.
This banishment of the fair sex is
not due to any frcakishness on the
part of employers or men.

There is some hitch in the title to
the 3,000 acres on which the village
and mines are situated. The law
of the state of Utah permits fami

that if the men were allowed to

On the borders between China
and Russia in Asia, almost due
south of Lake Baikal, is a good-
sized town known as Maimatchiu,
which is exclusively inhabited by
men. The place has a considera
ble trade, and is a military outpost.
An old law forbids Chinese women
to live in this territory. Indeed,
they may not pass the great wall of
Kalkau or enter Mongolia at all.
"The Prison of Ten Thousand"
is the name given by by the wander
ing Arabs of the districts across
Jordon' to the fortress monastery of
Mar, Saba on the Dead Sea. Not
many years ago there were actually
10,000 monks living in this grim
and mournful retreat, and even to
day there are more than 1,000 left.
The monastery is one of the oldest
in the world, having been founded
some 1 ,300 years ago by Kuthymius,
who lived there in a cave dug in the
rocky wall of the Kedrou ravine.
The fair empress Kudoxia formed a

anchorite, and built near by a tower,
which still exists, from which she
might watch him at a distance, for,

Now the tower is inhabited by a
watchman, who keeps constant
guard against the incursions of
prowling Arabs. Twice during the
past century the place has been
raided by hordes from the desert.
The monks who live there today
are the most rigorous of any in the
Greek church. , They pass their
lives in everlasting penance, with
no hope or pleasure and no cheer

mad from the horror and desolation
of their surroundings. No woman
