roaaf They all wear wooden sandals,
and their stockings are a kind of mitten
with a finger for tho big toe. During
wet weather their sandals become stilts,
and tho whole Japanese nation increase
Ita stature by three inches when it mini.
These sandals are held to the foot by
ove&iha toss,, and there. is
a straw solo between the foot and tht
sandal of wood. A tall Japanese on a
stilt sandal closely approaches tho ridicu
lous. He somettmoB tucks up his long
town under his belt to keep It from be
ingspattered by the mud, and the backH
of his bare calves seem to be walking off
with the man. The Japanese walk Li
peculiar. The men put their feet straight
In front of them, like the American In
dian. They lift them high off the ground,
and they have a get there air about them.
Tho women wabble and wabble; thor
bend over as they walk, and tbey havo
nliat is now in America tho faslilonablo
stride. Their lltUo feet in sandals turn
Inward, and all female Japan Is pigeon
toed. Your Japanese beauty is not averse
to showing her ankle, and the soul of the
Japanese beau does not flutter when ho
sees a two inch bIIco of cream colored
skin above tho tlirco inch foot mitten.
Tho Japanese shoo store is ono of wooden
ware rather than of leather, and tho cob
bler mends his shoe with tho chisel and

Tho Cootanta of an Eggshell.
The w eight of an ordinary now laid

it amounts to about two hundred grains.
In 100 parts about 10 parts consist of

whitiS of the egg contains a larger propor
tion of water than tho yolk. It contains
no latty raattert but consists chiefly of

in tho yolk, which contains rolath, cly a
smaller proportion of nitrogenous matter
and a larger proportion of solid matter
