Queer Skirts In Yap.
In the "Island of Stone Money," Dr.
W. EL Furnlss tells of the female fash
ions of the natives of Yap, the most
westerly of the Caroline Islands, and
expresses' wonder that the women are
so rarely burned to death.
"In the first place, their skirts are
composed of four or five layers of
dried leaves and strips of bast and are
tin vnlnmlnnno OTlf? MatanHa? *?*??*. thorr
and neither to matches nor husk do
they give the slightest heed, striking
the one recklessly over their own skirts
or absentmindedly resting the other
against the skirts of their neighbor.
Tot in spite of this utter recklessness
never did I see a skirt catch fire. One
month at longest ls the life of a wom
an's dress; then the old skirt ls burned
and a brand new one plaited, with no
tedious fittings at the dressmaker's
nor depressing bills to pay."
Use Short Words.
Literary aspirants should religiously
eschew polysyllabic orthography. The
philosophical and philological substruc
ture of this principle ls Ineluctable.
Excessively attenuated verbal sym
bols Inevitably Induce unnecessary
complexity and consequently exagger
ate the obfuscation of the mentality of
the peruser. Conversely, expressions
which are reduced to the furthermost
minimum of simplification and com
pactness, besides contributing realistic
verisimilitude, constitute a much less
onerous handicap to the reader's per
Observe, for Instance, the unmistak
able and Inescapable expressiveness of
onomatopoetic, Interjectional, mono
syllabic utterances, especially when
motivated under strenuous emotional
circumstances. How much more ap
pealing is their euphonious pulchritude
than the preposterous and pretentious
pomposity of elongated verbiage.-Life.
A Shock For Tennyson.
'. lt any one asked Holman Hunt
about persons he would tell delightful
frank anecdotes concerning, maybe,
the great men he knew and loved and
measured exactly. He liked a spice of
fun In everything, too, and his face
beamed as he described a walk with
Tennyson he had lately taken. They
heard footsteps behind, and the great
man frowned. "How they dog us,
Hunt! How shall we escape them?"
"Just sit on the stile till they pass,"
eaid the matter of fact artist They
did so, and two lads In knickerbockers
marched by swinging their sticks and
not even turning their heads. Tenny- j
Bon was chapfallen. ' '
"Do you know, Hunt," he said, "I do
not think they know who I am"
"Very likely, my dear Tennyson, and 1
they would not even know If you j
told them!"-"Recollections of Holman j
Hunt" in London Academy.

A playwright in an interview in New j
York said that without attention to the j
minutest details theatrical success
could rarely be attained.
"And yet," he added, smiling, "even
this grand virtue of attention to de- !
tails may be carried to excess. Thus a j
certain playwright said at rehearsal !
to his leading man:
"'Now, remember, John, after you j
speak this Une, "Helen, I will save you j
though I perish," pause and walt for
"But the leading man sneered and '
*' 'How do you know there'll be any j
" 'That ls my business, not yours, j
John,' the playwright answered with j
calm confidence." -Washington Star, j |
