ORR EXPLAINS WHY TRANSFERS ARE GIVEN TO PASSENGERS. AN ERRONEOUS IDEA Is Prevalent Among Some and In formation Is Given In Order to Correct This. The Southern Public Utilities com pany 1H placing Hlgns In its curs call ing the passengers attention tu ? tho fact that transfers are only good lor a continuous trip. To a reporter of the intelligencer .Mr. H.A. Orr, branch manager, stat ed us an explanation of this notice, that som?; of the passengers were der an erroneous Iden aw to the uso rf transfer, they being under thc Impression that lt wus good until us ed. Mr. Orr. went on to state that a transfer was given HO US to enable the passenger to continue his trip J when the car that he origlonally boarded did not go to his destination, and this ls readily seen as transfers are not given when the passenger ts able to complete his trio on the same car. For instance, If you board an Orr mill car going to the college no transfer would bp glv?n you, us tbe one car would cur y you to your de stination. Hut if you wanted to go to t'-ie llrogon Mill you would have to change cars and a transfer is there foro given you ns a notice to the Hrogon mill conductor that you have paid your fare und ar,, entitled to a continuous trip. On tho other hand, if you boarded a car at Orr mills and only Intended going to the square you would not need a transfer. How ever, If later on In the day your bus iness required you to go on the Bro gon nilli line, you would pay your fare without any question. The Southern Public I'tlllties com pany feels that those who have mis understood the usages of a transfer will readily see their mistake as soon aa tiley have given the matter some thought and lt ls to call their at tention to this fact that the notices are placed tn the cars.

Ham mett and weret read at the funeral services at Anderson, June 1, 1*J15, and are now published by request of friends o th0 deceased. We can but say: A flower plucked from earth below With beauty now hld from our sight, But yet 'twill shine In heaven, we know, Forever where there Is no night.

How great the thought And now abo's with Him up above. And with our loved ones gone before There to-sing redeeming love Forever and forever more.

WHEN tlie Australian troopB took the Gurman part ot New Guinea early in the war. Great Urltaln became the possessor of fully half of the largest Island In the world, for Aus tralia and Greenland aro properly small continents. Tho other half be longs to Holland. New Guinea surpasses Madagascar In size. Its length being 200 miles greater than the distance from New York to Chicago, says Rene Dache in tho Host o ii Herald. Its area ls equal to tliut of Fiance and tho British iBles combined. Hut wbut renders it most interesting is that, it is today the least known portion of the habitable world, fully nine-tenths of tho island being as yet unexplored. Tills may well seem surprising when lt ls considered thut New Guinea is separated from tho north coast of Australia only by a broad strait. A glance ct a map of thc world will show that lt ls in reality the largest member of the great archipelago In the eastern seas, which Includes the Philippine islands on the north and Horneo and Sumatra on the west. The line of tho equator runs almost direct ly through lt. Ferocious Black Cannibal?. New Guinea ls inhabited by tribes of ferocious black people, with /rent mops of woolly hair, who evince ut most hostility toward all Intruders. When vessels have been wrecked up on their inhospitable shores they have in a number of known instances cap tured the unfortunato mariners and eaten them. Rut if the island is to so great an extent a terra incognita to day it ?B not mainly on this account, but because of its unhealthful climate. TISHINO WITH 1 From the foothills of the huge inonu- \ tain range, running through its entire length from east to west, extend to north and south vast swampy plains covered with dense forestH, intersected by innumerable streams, and haunted by the deadliest of fevers. Thus it comes about that German New Guinea is practically an unknown land, except for a narrow strip along the coast, while the portion hitherto held by Great Britain has been ex plored only in part, and what ls known of the Dutch hair of the Island was ascertained malnl; by an Englls'h ex pedition undertr.icn In 1910. Thia expedition, headed by Capt. Ce cil G. Rawllng, which penetrated some, distance into the interior and made considerable surveys, came across tribes of hitherto unknown pygmies, the men barely reaching 4 feet 7 Inches In height. It ls presumed that the women are proportionately smaller,' j but no bribes or other persuasions could Induce these little folk to pro duce any of their females for Inspec tion-lest, as seemed to be feared, they might be captured and curled off. Ap parently the pygmies are of the samo dwarf race, evidently very ancient, that is found in the Philippines, In the, Andaman Islands and In equatorial! Africa. The savagea along the coast, on the other band, are good-sized people, re-'| markably muscular and with a great development of chest. The men are j | sooty black, the women being slightly j fairer. Among them are occasional;! albinos, with dirty reddish hair, their j pink skins blotched unpleasantly with darker color. Both sexes go nearly! naked, the women wearing either a. short grass petticoat or a atrip of bark cloth paased between the lega and held te place by a string tied around the waist. For the man a gourd similarly attached in front often serves the purpose of raiment Native Village One Long Room. A native village ls one long room, which may extend io any length, the newest member of such a community building tts hut on the .end of the row, withe* A any partition. Thus there ls no attempt at privacy, though each family haa Its own doorway and its own fireplace. The floor ls of sand fresh from the seashore and covered with grass mats, and the only farnl* tere consista of elaborately carved one would think, for sleeping pur? Dangling from the roof, and' anch blackened by smoke, aro human tl l's ana bones, farmed* bvivagute/* to defunct relativ s, the bones being sometimes contali ed in woven grass bagB. The price of a wife among these primitive people may be anything from a yard of ca leo to an ax head, according to tho ihyslcal attractions and domestic accc npllshmenta of the woman. The savage war iors of New Guinea adorn the m sol ves rlth crowns of par* adise feathers, wh1 :h are held in place by a band of plait >d grass enclrc'mg the head. Some ina es they wear a sort of halo, the rays of which are many pieces of ca m plaited into the hair and standing mt at right angles to the scalp. Such a headdress, which is not disturbed or emado for months, must be rather um imfortable to sleep in. J To lend a ?eros expression to the face the beak of t e bambill split in two is worn thro gh a hole in the septum of the no e, In such a way that the two thin vhito blades, each five or BIX Inches lc ig, curve up at the ends like Kaiser V Ubelm's mustache. In Perpet al Strife. Captain Rawllng, in his book, "The Land of the New Guinea Pygmies," says that the nativa are engaged In perpetual strife ami drunken brawls their favorite Intoxicant being a fer mented liquor obtal palm. Just outside! way stand the ov&er's spears and stone clubs, which are used in domes tic quarrels or to ffght with enemies. Violent temper seems to be a char acteristic of theBO avages, and with hardly a moment's) ? arning the peace ful village is convi ted Into a scene of turmoil and strl J. apeara whits; cluba are wielded ts ?scr|mlnately and PyBC^^^^Ji^* V .^tr^h^Msss^ss^MBi^iii^SS^^^^m PPPWsaWs^^s^s^^^ " , ; *: ?W'T*" ? ' ^ ' drunken brawls ed from the sugar each family door ?.OW AND ARROW with murderous intent, and the place resounds with ferocious yells. At intervals raid* are undertaken to procure heads as trophies and hu man flesh for food. . There are no fiercer cannibals, judging from all ac counts, than those of New Guinea. In 1868 a vessel was wrecked off the coast of British New Quin' \, and SOO men on board of her, all of them Chi nese, were m Mooned on a email is land. There they were fed and sys tematically fattened by the natives, no escape being possible, and at inter vals, aa required, two or three of them at a time were, taken to the mainland, boiled in a spring of hot water and eaten. Women have no rights among the natives of New Guinea. They aro treated as slaves, worked almost ta death and savagely beaten when their owners happen to bo in a bad humor, which is often. It is their business to cultivate the fields of banana and rice, while their lords and masters attend to the fighting and hunting. It a wxa chooses to murder his wife, nobody In- j terreras, and nothing much seems to be thought of it. New Guinea la. for naturalists an unexplored wonderland. It has many | ap?elos of birds that aro as yet un known tb science. The forests are tull of parrots and other feathered crea tures of brilliant plumage, and among the marine curiosities along the coast are Ashes that climb trees. Tbe swamps swarm with the deadliest snakes. As for the mammals qf the Island: nearly, all of them are, like thoa? of nearby Australia, marsupi al otion Pictures in Color. A serious effort is being made to reproduco motion pictures in color, but as yet little success hoe been obtained, and the pictures in color which have been show in recant years have bean painted.- Attempts tc adapt three color photography, by using simultane ously three filma, each with a sort of light of appropriate color, and combin ing the three images on tba screen, havo to overcome great difficulties in regard to maintenance of register, be cause very minuta errors ot adjustment between the pictures on the films ara magnified to an Intolerable extent by f projection.

Gravity Fire Escape Made Like Be , vol v lng Ladder. Constructed in the form ot an end less-chain ladder, an automatic fire escape has recently -bejm invented which for operating potter erqoirea only the weight of a passenger on one of its rungs. It is supplied with a speed governor which allows lt to movp at apre-deterroined vate and which, for ordinary purposes ls us ually set at about ino feet a minute. This ls arranged by a gearing at the top which is driven by tbe main shaft and acts upon a friction brake. The ladder will accommodate as many per sons- a tone time as are able to crowd upon lt and will move no tas ter under the weight of several pas sengers than it will under thc weight of only one. A plcturo of the ladder in use appears in the July Popular M?trantes Magasine. ??^.??IWi1- - - <| ...... Chicago A. nitrates. (Now York Sun. ) Chicago's population, which for about forty-eight wus depraved of its ordinary transportation facilities, will not question the terms on which thc* dispute that tied up its surface and elevated railroads is sent to arbitra tion. Wbist lt wants more than any-, thing else ls to 'have the cars tn mo tion, and thp resumption of the ser vice will put a period to the whole subject tn the minds of a large ma jority of Its citizens. Whether the absence of violence is to ho attributed to Mavor Thompson's firm stand for order, the seif-restraint of the men, or an unusual degree of tact and skill on the part, ot the managers, it has been a marked and ?".ntifylmr concomitant of the dispute. That rioting might have begun had the negotiations .ooklng town-'d peace fallen through ls of course true, but the fact that the strike was carried on without resort to the bludgeon and the bomb, and without necessitating tho use of their olubs by t?ie polio?, is highly creditable to the men wiro quit their Jobs and to their leaders. The workhien of Chicago-have lived In an atmosphere of unrest for months, and the railway men's strike was the gravest incident of a long series of labor difficulties. The manner of its terlmlnatlon ls distinctly reassuring and holds the promise of a settlement not permanently unsatisfactory to both sides.
