The Trailing Skirt Hangs On.
s: spite of all the diatribes hurled et
against it, the trailing skirt still drags ,
its weary length along with a deter- st
mlnation not to be supplanted by the
skirt designed according to the laws of u
health and common sense. It clings u
as closely to the hips as ever, although I
some of the recent importations show
the breadths gathered or pleated about
the hips in true old time fashion. One
might conclude tha4 this method would
destroy all graceful lines, but when
bandled by an. expert the result is to A
make the waist more slender and con
ceal noticeably prominent hips. Many
new skirts fall apart at the centre

placed -beneath, frequently showing

All this was plainly shown by one of

fortunately, she knew just the size of
the tucks she wanted, as well as the
distance they should be apart, to fit In
with her ideas.
Everybody agreed that what she
wanted was not to be found, until site

manded of a firm if they did not get
some of their tucking done in town.
Such turned out to be the case, and
presently she was favored with the ad

fears, found the establishment, where
this tucking and shirring was done, to

Guinea Pig Farm Run By a Wet.
Milk is the only liquid thibq ulnea
pigs drink. This is the testinmy of
a Philadelphia woman who has a farm
of six hundred guinea pigs in that city.
The proprietor of this unique establish
ment supplies the pigs for Inoculative
and scientific experiments to the Board
of Health, universities, colleges, hospl.
tals and physicians.
'The little animals are pecullar in
their habits, and need constant care
and attention," says this woman.
"They are extremely nervous, and a
sudden jar or unexpected noise is lia
ble to kill them. A single thunder
shower will sometimes injure great
numbeas, and perhaps kill eight or
ten of them. As I raise them strictly
or the use of their blood, which must
absolutely pure, I feed them only

that result. Bects, carrots, na)ple ,
green peas, oats, hay and grass consti
tute their chief diet, with noW and
then a little cabbage for a relish. They
are extremely susceptible to heat and tr
cold, and during these hot days it takes
most of my time to regulate the tem
perature of their cages. Although
they are so tiny their average Weight
is from five to seven pounds. Con
sidering their size they require a good ar
deal of food. The average age of the
little fellows is two years. After that
they become sickly." on

ail of their wives but one. Some of
the medicine chiefs had as many as ten
women whom they called wives. All

When the law was passed throwing 8

them. It was a hard blow to the *
tribes, as they have always practiced "
polygamy without any interference.
In reply to a letter from Agent Mis
chare, the Indians gathered at Darling
ton on the first of the week. The old
men had all of their wives with them.
The agent made a speech to them in
which he set forth the fact already
stated. The medicine men made re
plies. Rolling Pony, who had ten
beautiful young squaws and one old
one, was the principal talker against
the giving up of his wives. He said
that they represented him as a wealthy
man and If he had to give all of them
up but one the Indians would think
that he was a very poor man and he
would lose his influence among his peo- *
pie. He said that for his wives he had ".
paid nearly 1,000 ponies and had been
twenty years in gathering them around o
his tepee. He made no mention of lov- "
Ing any of them, but said they were "
good workers and tended his crops in -"
good shape. The agent asked him if *
he loved them and which one he liked
best. He made no reply, saying he did
not understand the question. Then the
agent told him he must make his .
choice then and there. The squaws "
were all lined up before the old man
and he looked at them long and earn- "
estly. Finally he selected the oldest "
one, she being shown In the photograph *

d About sixty old men had to give up
their many wives and they invariably
took the one they had bought first,
casting the youngest and prettiest

were glad to be released from the hard
