PIXIES OF CORNWALL
A TRIBE OF ELVES WITH THE SOULS
OF ANCIENT CELTS.
TheyAre Tricksy Spirits, Well Skilled
In Glamour and Illuxion-The Good
and Bad That Are Charged to These
Prankish Little People.
Piskies, pixies or pigsies are a tribe
of elves peculiar to old Cornwall, a
territory once extending to the eastern
edge of Dartmoor, which is still in
cluded in the duchy. They are not ele
mentary spirits, but in material life
were those of the Celtic tribes who re
fused to give up their ancient religion
for Christianity, but otherwise lived1
blameless, hence their sympat% with
humanity. Not good enough for heaven
nor bad enough for hell, their wander
ing souls were permitted to remain on
earth, haunting their own familiar
moorlands, wooded coombes and waste
In early May and during thepign of
the harvest moon they are active in
revel, but their chief festival of the
year is held on midsummer eve. With
the passing of many centuries they
have greatly shrunken in size and are
now indistinguishable by daylight from
aunts, moths or butterflies, except by
those intimately acquainted with their
appearance. A troop of these sprites
was beheld of late years by one who
had the gift of such sight on a sunny
hillside one brilliant summer after
noon. They were dancing amid the
heather bells, climbing tall foxgloves,
tumbling queer somersaults, cutting
fantastic capers and, as the Cornish
saying runs, "laughing like a pisky."
This shows them to be a merry race.
Apparently they are gradually becom
ing converted to Christianity, for on
Christmas eve they assemble In the
<deepest mines to celebrate the holy sea
son, when solemn, entrancing music
may be heard and choirs of unearthly
voices chanting, "Nowell, Nowell."
They are tricksy elves, skilled in gla
mour and illusion. A favorite deceit
of theirs is enticing the lonely night
traveler into bogs by appearing like the
light in a cottage window, or a man
walking with a lantern across ground
where no human foot can tread in
safety. They steal pretty babies from
their cradles, leaving ugly changelings
in their places.
If spoken of disrespectfully, or even
mentioned by name, they take violent
offense. Hence they are called "the
others," "the small people in green"
or "the good folks." At Germol is a
green lane well known as a resort of
fairies. Once on midsummer eve two
tinners who worked at Croft Gothal, a
mine hard by, were returning late
down this bat lane aforesaid and
found it full from end to end of the lit
tle people holding high festival.
Among the crowd one of the men
recognized his own child, for one
evening the boy had been as beautiful as
could be seen and next morning was
ugly, weazened and altered. There
fore "the others" must have changed
him. When relating this tale next day
at Croft Gothal he was suddenly
thrown into a deep pit and almost
killed. When carried home his wife,
furious at the cause of their misfor
tunes, exclaimed that the pixies were
"tain', tricksy devils." Instantly
she fell backward into the fire and
was burned severely, a convincing
proof that these elves must not be
At Treonike, a small hamlet in St.
Austell parish, a boy was once be
guiled away from his home, lost for
many days, and finally, after all hope
of finding him had been given up, he
was one morning discovered fast
asleep on a tuft of bracken, hard by
his father's cottage door. His own
story ran that he had been playing
near that spot on the day of his disap
pearance, when he heard most exqui
site music in the air. .
At first he mistook this for bird
songs, but soonL realized that the little
people must be the unseen musicians.
Following the sounds, he easily pene
trated a thicket whose depths he had
never before succeeded in entering, for
some invisible guide smoothed the un
dergrowth in his path, while causing
thorns and briers to spring up, closer
and more matted than formerly, be
hind him and on either hand. Also the
music became more and more ravish
At last he found himself- upon the
shore of a small lake, which, to his sur
prise, reflected the sky thick with stars,
though it had been full noontide on the
common but a short time earlier. Then
a lovely lady came through the dark
ness, took him by the hand and led
him about underground palaces with
crystal arches, glowing with changing
tints, far finer than any caverns In the
There he saw many marvelous sights,
feasted on dainties he had never tasted
in his life before, gamboled or con
versed with troops of merry play
mates, all begutifully dr~ssed in green.
At last he fell asleep from sheer weari
ness, and awoke In the spot where he
had first heard the pisky minstrels.

DUDES OF OTHER TIMES.
Dress of a Dandy of the Early Nine
A cure for the confirmed railer
against modern dress might be a course
of inspection through a file of old
fashion magazines or the perusal of
such accounts as are given by the
author of "Sketches of Lynn." The
description is that of a suit worn in
the first part of the nineteenth century.
The boots were an important article
of dress. The toes were made as broad
as the ball of the foot, with the cor
ners well rounded, giving the shoe the
resemblance to the snout of a shovel
nosed shark. They were very snug and
required strong straps. In order to get
into a fashionable pair the heel of the
stocking was well soaped and some
pulverized soap sprinkled Into the boot.
The length of time it took to get one
on depended on the strength of the
.owner and the strap.
The stylish overcoat displayed five
capes, one above the other. The trou
sers were expected to fit as tight as the
skin. Just how they were put on is a
mystery. The coat was especially snug
under the sleeves, and the velvet collar
scraped up the back of the head. The
camlet overcoats after a little wear,
became as stiff as birch bark.
The thing worn about the neck-was
called a stock. This name was appro
priate in its suggestion of an Instru
ment of punishment The stock was
from three to six inches high, and was
made stiff. A man was forced to look
straight ahead. Only by careful man
agement could he see a little on either
side. About halfway between his eyes
and -ears two little points of collar
stuck up like toothpicks.
Ruffled bosoms and wristbands fin
ished the costume, with the addition of
a tal silk hat. When inclosed in this
manner, with a dash of attar of roses
on his handkerchief, the man of the
period was considered irresistible.

HONORS AND WORTH.
Abswrdity of Titles That Descend
From Father to Son.
When you find a man a most excel
lent runner, poet, surgeon or mariner,
you give him due respect for his skill.
If he is very eminent, his occupation
esteemed and you chance to be some
ruling power, he may receive a title.
'ou do not confer this title because
;f his grandmother, and you do not
make the old lady a duchess or indeed
pay her any particular attention. This
omission does not reflect discredit.on
the grandmother. It is obvious to her
mind that to make her a peeress be
cause not she, but some one else, has
done something "good" would be as
absurd as giving her twelve months'
hard labor if he had done something
Still less rational would it be to make
the man's son a peer. The old lady
has given the world this grandson
Perhaps she is in a measure the cause
of his greatness, just as she might be
to a certain extent responsible were
he a criminal. But the son of the man
did not make his father. He is not to
be more greatly pr.dsed for what his
father has done than for what William
the Conqueror did.
The world seldom or never gives a
man a title because his father earned
one, but it does an equally silly thing
when it allows a son to inherit such an
"honor," says Home Notes.
Until a man can transmit merit it Is
absurd to allow him to transmit a tes
timonial as to merit. And, if there be
no pretense of claim to exceptional
worth, what solid' reason can be ad
vanced for a man receiving a designa
tion that commands deference?

QUEER EASTER CUSTOM.
The Way Filipino Penitents Toze
One of the many curious customs
practiced by some ipersons in the Phil
ippine islands is the way in which they
observe the week before Easter. For
the Thursday, Friday and Saturday
before Easter the streets or roads on
the outskirts of some villages and
sometimes the principal streets of the
town Itself are filled with crowds, who
have come to see the natives inflict
The willing victims are stripped to
the waist, their faces are covered with
a thick cloth and around one hand is a
heavy hemp rope, with a cluster of
from fifteen to twenty smaller hempen
cords. To each of these is fastened a
small piece of hard wood. The whole
thing is just long enough so that when
flung over the shoulder it will not quite
reach to the waist.
When the penitents are ready to start
out a Filipino, wvho has been appointed
as a sort of overseer, takes the flesh of
the back between his thumb and first
finger and cuts the skin with a long
boo. 'This is done all over the back.
He then cries, "Alla, sigle" ("Go
ahead"). Then the penitent begins to
beat his back by lashing his cluster of
little pieces of wood and cords first
over one shoulder, then over the other,
until the back Is so lacerated that it
somewhat resembles raw beef. All the
while the onlookers and victims also
are singing, or, rather, chanting, a most
dismal, unearthly funereal chant.-New

DANCING IN VIENNA.
The Music Never stops, and People
Waltz All the Time.
When the fasching is in full and
orthodox swing in Vienna, balls take
place every evening in the dozen or
so of big and small halls available for
societies and charities. The favorite
hall is the Sofensal, which is a swim
ing bath in summer. For the oc
casion it is floored with parquet and
decked with palms.
There- are always two when not
three bands, and as soon as one leaves
off the other takes up the waltz. If It
does hot the public wants to know the
reason why and immediately begins
to demonstrate with hand and voice.
The chaperons sit around in solemn
state, and the men congregate in the
middle of the floor, forming what is
technically called the herren insel, or
men's island. From this position of
vantage they swoop down on any part
ner who weakens for a moment and
carry her off. There is no such thing
as being enigaged for a dance-indeed.
there is scarcely such a thing as a
dance, the whole evening being one
large dance, except for the supper
bregk . At the charity ball or frauen
hein, for instance, there will be about
2,000 present, and as the men are in
good training none of them is long
without a spin.
The crush is tremendous, of course,
but the Vienna dancer, male or other,
cares little for hard knocks and, being
determined 'to get around the room,
manages to do it somehow or other,
though to a stranger the task looks
There is not much ceremony about
Introductions. Two strange men will
come up and with grave politeness in
troduce each other to a lady whom
neither of them knows. The lady may
please herself, of course, as to whether
she dances with him or not. In any
case, the acquaintance begins, and
often ends, with a turn. It is not even
necessary to be two. One dancer
sometimes makes bold to approach, and
with a deep bow he says that his name
is Norval and that he is a lawyer, or
something else, and may he have the
honor of a waltz? Since the idea is
simply to have a partner and nothing
is further from his thoughts than to be
uncivil, he'generally gets his way.
In a ball like this there is little favor,
and the prettiest and smartest girls are
not much better off than their less at
tractive sisters. While the dowagers
are in splendid robes, the dancing con
tingent are, as a rule, rather simply
dressed and short skirted, or else they
have an arrangement whereby they
gather up all their drapery in one hand,
so that they may succeed in keeping
it on their persons. Nevertheless to
ward the small hours the damage is
The Vienna belle may not go to as
many balls, perhaps, as her English
sister, but she certainly dances a good
many more kilometers in the course of
her season. The Vienna balls begin,
as a rule, pretty sharply at 9, and,
with an hour or so for supper, the
waltzing goes on till 3. The most en
thusiastic will not go away much be
fore 5, but the officers cannot often
stay to the end, and when the lieuten
ants depart the glory departs with
them. Six hours, almost without a
pause, is a very respectable athletic
performance, and many of the ladler
will nevertheless be seen on the Ice
the next afternoon still waltzing.
Of the etiology of stuttering we know
nothing definite. Direct inheritance is
rare, and possibly imitation is the chief
factor when father and son are affect
ed. There is usually a well marked
neurotic inheritance, others in the fam
ily having various forms of nervous
complaints. But I have not been able
to confirm Charcot's statement that

frequently occur in the same family.
Shocks, frights and debility after some
acute illness are the causes to which
the onset is most frequently attributed
by parents. Imitation Is undoubtedly
an occasional cause, children having
often been known t'o start the habit

often met with and are important as a
predisposing cause, since they tend to
prevent the proper filling of the chest

though it must not be expected that
their removal will lead to a prompt
cessation of the stutter.-London Lan
A Wonderful Prodigy.
The king of prodigies died on .Tune
27, 1725, at the .age of five, after hav
ing astonished the whole world. His
story is the most remarkable in human
annals and is attested by evidence
which has satisfied all the learned in
quirers who have written about him.
The infant, Christian Heinecken, was
born of respectable parents in Lubeck,
1721. A few hours after his birth he
began a conversation, at ten months
there was scarcely a subject on which
he could not express an opinion and
at a year and a month he had mastered
both the Old and New Testaments. He
was only two and a half when he was
able to answer questions concerning
anything in ancient and modern his
tory, and he was also at this time an
expert geographer. He spoke Latin
and French, and at the age of four
was speaking in the French language
at the court of Denmark. All this
time he was being nursed by his moth
er. At the age of five it became nec
essary for him to be weaned, and in
consequence of this change of diet he
died, leaving psychologists an insolu
ble problem.-Westminster Gazette.
