Lots of People
are "getting along" with poor lights because they think they are
being economical. They just don't know that Electrio light is
not much more expensive thai: the coal oil lamp, And they judge
of the price by the superior merits of Electricity,
We should like to see some of these people; we would submit
n few facts and figures that would surprise them.
ONE fact is this the only good light for evening use is

Much In Evidence
Man Is still much eaten by his fel
low man. It Is estimated Hint mil
lions of savages on the upper Congo
nro ""Invcterato cannibals. Millions
mora perhaps hnvo the samo tnsto In
Now Giilnen nnd ceitnln groups ot
the South Sen Islands, notably tho
Solomons, the Now Hebrides und New
Why this should be so Is n mjs
lery Hint has perplexed the anthro
pologists. David Livingstone, tho
first white man to cross the Man
yemn count r)-. In Central Ah leu, was
icluctaut to bellow that cannibalism
was not In some way associated with
superstitious rites. Hut when he
saw tho eagerness of the nutlvcs for
what was evidently their fiuorlto
food ho could no longer close his eyes
to tho dimple fact the Congo man
preferred human llesli to any other
Mud of meat.
Tho extent ot tho prnctlco is indi
cated in tho evldeneo gheii before tho
various Congo Inquiry commissions,
sayB n writer In the Charleston Nows
And Courier. One natlvo witness af
ter another camo forward mid laid on
tho table bunches of twigs nnd
loaves, each ono lcprcscntlng n hu
man being that had been hilled and
eaten by the so-called sentries em
plojed by the llelglun administration
to supervise tho bringing In of rub
ber. It has even been asserted that those
tribes which do not Indulge In this
prnctlco nro inferior, mentally and
phjsleally, to the cannibals. "And
yet," said Livingstone, speaking of
tho Mnnyemn, "they nro a llne-Iook-Ing
race. I would hack them to be
ruperlor In shnpo of head and general
phyBlquo to tho entire Anthropolog
Kor ninny )cars travelers general
ly omitted from tho books mention of
cannibalism. Such stoi'les would,
they fancied, be considered exagger
ated, If not positively untrue. Hut of
late th explore of all nationalities
have studied both people und prac
tice with bclcntllic-zenl.
Sir Harry Johnston, Herbert Ward,
Commandant Guy llurrows, of the
Congo Administration; Dr. Parke,
Capt. S. I.. Hlnde, also in King Leo
pold's service, und many others hnc
spent years among tho Congo tribes,
nnd they give in a matter-of-fact way
details of tho habits of tho savages
which are almost lncicdlblc. In the
llangala country not only nro tho
bodies of those, slain In battle eaten,
but tho natlves'hnbltually hill men
tor food. And about this thero Is
much curious system, such as in
clines students of anthropology to
suspect some hidden origin.
Thus the prisoner is not killed out
right, but Is placed chin deep in a
pool of water, with his head made
fast to a log lest he diown. Tho vic
tim's limbs, by tho way, hnvo been
broken three days previously. On
tho third day tho poor crentrfro is
taken out and killed. This proced
ure, tho fierce Dnngnla say, makes
tho lle3h more tender.
Tho cannibals In nil cases extrnct
tho teeth of their human prey for'
necklaces and bracelets. The hair Is
niiido Into fishing lines and nets, the
Bklu goes to cover war drums and
tnc skulls become fnshlonablo decora
tions In tho homes of tribal chiefs,
whoso greatest glory Is a long nrray
of these trophies of tho chase.
Commandant Guy Harrows, Intnly
lit tho service of tho Congo adminis
tration, told tho writer a em Ions
story of tho Hatako people, n body ot
whom he led In a punitive expedition
tgainst tho Mnhodo tribes.
Tho day had been marked by forc
ed marches and sharp fighting. In
which both sides left many dead In
tho thick Jungle.
Presently In tho gathering dink a
huge savage passed him stcnlthll),
with it big btindlo on his shoulder
wrapped In lenves of tho wild banana
palm. Challenged by Harrows, Hu
man said he was only bearing food
for bis comrades just bnnnn.i food.
Hut in fact ho and several uthi-is had
been constantly going to and fio
from the sreno of tho light, inning
up the bodies nnd bringing them
down In small parcels, so as not to
attract tho whlto man's attention as
they passed his tent.
Yet In this very country are tribes
that would not eat human llesli If
they were starving; tho curious little
pygmies, for instance, of the Gicat
Forest. Yet theso nro Infinitely low
er In the bocinl scalo than the canni
bals llttlo better thnn apes. In fact
Their huts would dlsgrnco an in
telligent animal. They hac no arts,
nor do they till tho Mill Theso
queer little nomads exist by hunting,
(rapping and fishing. They oeti pur
cuo tho elephant, shooting it in the
foot with poisoned nrrow-s mid then
Hacking it until It becomes helpless,
ivhen they finish off the munster with
Turning to tho South Sea Islands,
tho (lerinnns, Dutch and lliltlsli nie
driving to put down cannibalism in
their respective sphorcs In New Gui
nea. So far theso efforts bac met
with llttlo success, Tho practice is
too deep seated to bn eradicated in a
generation or two. No New Gulnen
maiden will look with faor on n
suitor whose hut is not plastered with
human skulls as testimony to his
prowess ns hunter and general pro
filer for tho home.
In the Solomon Island, New Britain
nnu Now Ireland, tho natives nro also
cannibals from deliberate choice. In
tho FIJI Islands ns Into nslSSO lived
cannibals as ruthless as any on earth.
They fattened .their victims In wood
en cages until they wero ready for
the braining stones, which you mny
see In Ovnlnu to this day, together
with notches otr the trees recording
tho number of human beings sent to
Hero tho eating of human flesh was
full of symbols, poetry nnd philoso
