Miss Gordon dimming, la her book
"At Home In Fiji," Bays that in "every
Tillage! there Is invariably one targe
house called the bure, where all the
young men sleep. It would be contrary
to all notions of propriety that they
should occupy the same house an the
women, even their nearest relations.
In fact brothers and sisters, or brothers-in-law
and sisters-in-law, and various
other near kinsfolk are forbidden even
to apealc to one another, or to eat from
the same dish. For a man to eat food
left by a woman would be highly infra
dig and to unroll a mat belonging to a
woman, or to lie upon it, would be the
height of Impropriety. The laws of af
finity in regard to marriage are very
curious. First-cousins, who are chil
dren of brother and sister, may inter
marry, but the children of two men
who are full brothers may on no ac
count do so; indeed, may hardly speak
to one another. No word exists to ex
The English Style of Girl,
A Western papnr thinks there ara
fashions in girls as well as in clothex.
It says: "Thorn are thirty thousand
unmarried women in Massachusetts.
Why are thrso women unmarried? It
is treatise they are of a pattorn which
ha of late years gone out of fashion.
A couple of years ago there was intro
duced the plump English style of girl.
The latter became enormously popular,
and the bony and spectacled maideus
of Massachusetts became a drug in the
market. It wns still generally conced
ed that the Massachusetts girl knew
more about Emerson's philosophy and
Ali-oll's Orphic utterances than did her
plumper rival, but the merits of tho
former worn no longer able to awaken
liny enthusiasm. '1'hn Boston poetical
young man no longer wrote sonnets
expre-int the emotions of bis heart on
heiirin the bones of his beloved rattle
as she ran to meet him at the gale, and
the Boston youth of fashion no longer
propound at public dinners the once
familiar t insl, 'Beauty and Bouos,' in
honor of the; spni e sex. In fact, spare
and angular girls went entirely out of
fashion, and Massachusetts men went
outside of the boundaries of New Eng
land when thev sought for wives."

Story about Thackeray.
A writpr in tho London 7Vir.v tells
the following story about Thackeray,
never before printed: "I entered the
(jan irk Club about noon, and met
Thackeray in the reading room. 'Young
fellow,1 he said, 'I've got some Ameri
can friends dining with mo to-night at
the Trafalgar at Greenwich. Come and
help me ninuso them.' I had onlv late
ly left Oxford. 'What!' I said, 'dine at
Greenwich iu November?' For that
was the mouth. 'Ha, ha!1 exclaimed
the cmincut novelist as it was tho
fashion to call him in those days
'come and see.1 Of course 1 would.
But on that very afternoon I had au ap
pointniont with my inspected progenitor
anent some financial transjaetions con
nected with the distinguished college at
Oxford, of which 1 was at once the
ornamont and tho prodigal. I feared
a slight crisis was imminent. But dis
tance does lend n disenchantment to
the view of monetary backslidins's. I
told Thackeray that my dinner would
be uepondciit on the paternal interview
hoiu a short one. He said hn wonhl
leavo word anent time and place with
lite poller, ue did, in these very char
Doarp.-fl, at tho Trafalgar. Was the old

W. M. T.
And it was a dinner. Splendid fish
admirably cooked. No whitebait of
course. But we had the house ami
kitchen to ourselves, and our American
cousins were entertained right royally.
They were all distinguished men, and
yet, I am ashamed to say, 1 have for
gotten their names. En revanche, I
have not forgotten some magnificent
