PIVB HUSBANDS APICCB.

Just at this time so ma a 7 ladies are
apparently finding one hasband too
many. Mrs. Iiabrlla Bishop contrib
utes a chapter on how the women of
far-away Thibet are happy as the day
fat Ions; with four or five husbands
apiece. Their determination to stick
to many hasband, instead of one, is
tana far the insurmountable obstacle
to converting these Thibetan to
Christianity. Mrs. llixhop says:
"The Thibetan eldest son is the
Principal member of 1 he family. When
they reach a certain aire evea his
father and mother must step down
and out and go Into a small house,
leaving him the main establishment.
There he takes his bride. lie is her
"first man." so to speak, but along
with him aha takes as husbands all
his brothers, be the number great or
smalL The more brothers he has the
more hnsbands she. The women all
like it. aad declare they would not
have it otherwise for the world. "We
have there or four men to help os in
stead of one." they say. The stupidity
and monotony of living with just one
husband. European fashion, are ap
palling to them, and they pity their
European sisters sincerely. II -re is
their unanswerable logic: -If I had
only one husband and he should die I
would be a widow; If f had two or
three I ara never a widow. Seer It

to make a present of tnoner to the

was introduced among the Thibetans
originally as an economic measure, so
that the ropulatioa should not outrun
the means of subsistence.'

One of the curiosities of West Ma

tombstone in the parish churchvard
over the grave of James Oswald of
Rpittai. a property antoag the Pent

table of marble, at which he con
ducted his festivities. He desired that
It might be used as the monumeat
over his grave, and with this view
caused aa inscription ia Latin to be
executed on the table by war of epi
taph, which came into use sooner
than was expected.
When going out to shoot wild ducks
at Kllpperfield loch Mr. Oswald was
accidentally shot by his servant, who
was walking behind him with his
run. and he thus died while still a

to come to the stable and help him to

maa stooped down his son pushed
him Into the tab and turned it over.
Then he pat heavy stones 00 it and
locked the stable door. After three
days he again went to look and find
