Terrible Post to Travelers and Natives
In the Northland.
No account of travel in Labrador can
be complete without some mention of
the terrible pest of mosqnitoes. These
were always prg-ent in Immense
swarms fr,om the beginning of our trip
to the end, and sometimes they made
life almost unbearable.
Nothing- cduld be heard but their
buzzing. Whenever we attempted to
eat they were down our throats and
In our eyes and faces, and in spite of
our head nets and fly dope we were
always badly bitten. The natives
seemed to mind them almost as much
as we did, their remedy being rancid
seal oil. I am satisfed that were one
so unfortunate as to be caught out at
night without protection he would be
either crazy or dead by morning.
Our tents were provided with a fine
mesh bobbinet inner tent, but some
would always find their way *side or
come up from the ground. At times
our'light so attracted them we went
outside to see if it were not raining.
for the constant tapping of the mos
quitoes against the canvas sounded so
exactly like rain that it was impossible
to tell the difference.
On many nights I had to give up the
observation of stars for latitude and
longitude because a candle could not
be kept lit long enough to adjust the
artificial horizon. We unfortunately
had no chimney, and the mosquious
swarmed so thickly that without this
protection the flame wis quickly
smothered. There were but few nights
cool enough to afford us any relief.
We found that it required a tempera
ture within a few degrees of actual
freezing to subdue them.-Forest and
The Fashion Was Started In England
by Queen Elizabeth.
The practice of starching linen is
at least 400 years old. It is said
to have originated under Queen
Elizabeth. Its inventor was a Dutch
woman, the wife of a Mr. Guilhgem,
who was driver at the royal court.
Mrs. Guilheem understood so well how
to improve a small deficiency in the
bust of her royal mistress by means of
stiffened collars, frills and laces that
Elizabeth overwhelmed her with fa
vors and privileges and finally elevated
her to the rank of chief inspectress of
the court linen.
Th'e faslilon introduced by the queen
was of course soon followed by all
the women of rank. The fad for this
new "art" fnally degenerated Into a
veritable mania for stasching. ireting.
jlaiting, etc. Later special "profess

whoni a Flemish woman of the name
of Dinghen van der Plasse seems to
have occupied the highest rank. Those
pgii-Ileged to be initiated by her in the
art had to pay no less than E5 for a
Later they began to add blue color to
the starch. Queen Elizabeth. who was
very anlous about her questionable:
beauty, found that the addition of blue
gave a green hue to her complexion.
She therefore prohibited her subjects
wearing any other than pure~ white
starched linen, claiming that blue

But fashion proved- superior even to
"good'Queen Bess." They continued
merrily to use blue starch, though one

Japan's. Four and Twenty Models of
Filial piety, as is well known, Is the
special virtue of China and Japan.
From It springs loyalty to the empertr,
who is regarded as "the father and

are the subjects of Chinese legend.
One of the paragons had a cruel

A DEADLY CONTEST.
Tragic Climax of a Bicycle Race In
One of the most singular events in
