A REMARKABLE PEOPLE.
Sew Gumeans Shy of Natives and
Dr. Bruno Beheim gives the following
description of the mysterious and
little known race of the Kukuhuhus,
V of New Guinea. The Kukuhuhus are in
a part of English territory through
which Runs River Jpfikehamu and
L , which is situated near the German
1 boundary. This territory is looked
upon by the said race as their inalienable
birthright, and every usurper is
regarded with hostile eyes. Xo European
has been able to meet the
Kukuhuhus in their dwelling places.

Many a tim- have Europeans left
1 presents highly prized by other naI
tives, such as corals, red cloth, looking
glasses, axes, etc., in the desert-ed
camps, in :he hope of establishing
friendly relations wun mese peopit".
But on returning ;o the same places a
few days or a few weeks later, although
the camp show d recent traces
of occupation, such as live cinders and
fresh footprints, the goods intended
for presents remained untouched
where they had b-:en ploaccd.
Other races of New Guinea fear the

learned to their cost what it means to
cross the boundary. Some disappear
for all time, while others are found
dead, thrust through with spear
wounds. The Kukuhuhus, however, do
a bartering trad with orher natives in
the following way: The latter bring
salt, earthenware, dried fish, etc., and
deposit them in a certain indicated
place. They then retir? for a few
hours being notified to do so by a
curious cry from the .distance. The
timid mountain dwellers then descend
to view the goods offered for sale. If
they want them' they put down oth-er
goods, such as skins, feathers and
other jungle produce, next to those
articles wanted by them. Th-n they
j retire in turn, and wh-en the way
I senilis clear the coast dwellers approach
again. If the latter are satis
j fied ?vith what is off. red in exchange
| they take the goods put down by the
niountain people and go away; if not

with empty hands. Th-ese business
transactions between wild races show

Doctor Be'heim regards the Kukuhu
hus as the most remarkable of the
; ethnological wonders of New Guinea,
and he was not successful in discovj

Girls Not Always Welcome.
Mrs. Parsons does not s-eem to think
that girl babies are always welcome.
" 'I am just as glad to have a girl
cis a boy,' says the motner, wno, iroxu
piety or sentimentality, thinking she
ought to be, or averse, perhaps to
j commiseration, fails to realize how
j much by her own words she gives
'herself away. 'I suppose you are glad
it is a boy,' is another remark judged
fitting to the occasion. Do I merely
imagine I discern disparagement, concern
or mockery in the intonation of
'all girls,' or 'only girls' in reference
to a boyless progeny?
"One admits to being fanciful in
thinkiner of such turns of speech as
survivals of female infanticide."
The subject of children, their bearing
and rearing, is one upon which
Mrs. Parsons is particularly eloquent.
On the subj ct?of childlessness she
"Nowadays, whether husband and
wife be responsible, childlessness may
still be a cause of polygamy?or polylandry?but

Lihia, Ohio. June 12.?Andrew Drew'
! pupil of Orville Wright, volplaned to
! death here this evening in a blazing
j biplane. Drew was kiled as a result
I of a desire to take "just a little joy
ride"?his last words to his partner?
in a machine he had not thoroughly j
tested. His partner in a local school1
! of aviation, J. C. Brabazon, had urg!
ed him not to make the trip.
i He fell 200 feet. He was dead when
iBrabazon and several workmen at
ithe Lima State Hospital pulled his
| body from under the wreckage.
Drew and Brabazon went out to the
'aviation grounds, about a half mile
! from the State Hospital, during the
| afternoon and Drew and his mechanicians
set up the machine. It was dusk
jwhen they had finished. Drew was
j anxious to try out the machine and I
urged Brabazon who had made several
flights with him, to go along. J
| "Let's take just one little joy ride,"
he laughed, "and then I'll go and eat
with you,' said Drew.
Brabazon demurred on the ground
i that it was getting too dark to fly and
| there were no places suitable for a
'good landing. The machine which th>3

zone as soon as congress adjourrs.
He told Col. Goethals, chief engineer
of the canal, today but did not
hazard any guess as to when that
Col. Goethals said he expected to
turn water into <fhe canal about October
President Wilson expects to refrain
from any attempt to organize the permanent
government of the zone until
the canal is practically completed.
When he visits the isthmus he will
not only make a careful examination
of the great waterway as an engineering
accomplishment, but probably will
take up with Cel. Goethais me general
plan of organization of a civil
government for the zone.
In addition to mechanics to actualy
operate the canal, a large clerical
force must be maintained on the
isthmus to look after the measurements
of vessels and the collection
of tolls, the purchase of the vagi
I quantities of supplies needed for the
j enormous fleet of vessels expected to
j pass through the waterway annually,
as well as material which will be u.sea
