N Trouble For Australian Aborigine
to Break Camp.
An Australian aborigine breaks th
monotony of his life by frequent visits
to other camps, but his preparations
for these holidays have a simplicity
about them which must appeal to manj
a worried housewife. It is thus de
scribed by Messrs. Spencer and Gillet
in "Across Australia:"
"Apart from ceremonies and dances
the one great break in the monotonj
of life is paying visits to strangt
camps. Packing up is not a tedious
process The man simply walks out oi
camp, carrying his spears, spea
thrower, boomerangs and shield the
woman takes the youngest child across
her hip, balances a pitchi on her head,
and, with one arm round the child
and a digging stick in her free hand,
she is ready for the road. The gir.
children and younger women look af tei
the puppies, which are never left be
hind on any account, and, when un
able to walk, are carried in pitchis lik
young babies
"Two minutes at most is all the time
required for an aboriginal family tr
pack up and start and there is nc
trouble in regard to the house wfiilt
the owners are away. If any one
chooses to occupy it during their ab
sence he c.tn do so, but the owner
will see at a glance who has been ii
possession while they have beei
He Found the Ghost.
"Talking about ghosts," said the jan
itor of one of the best known concert
halls in the city, "makes me think oi
the scare I got the other day when I
went into the auditorium after some
supplies I had left back on the stage
As I stepped into the place I heard
scraping and hauling on the stagA
Some one was puffing and blowing and
then whistling a bit For the moment
my hair began to stand up. I managed
to get to one of the switches and turned
on the light There was the ghost! One
of the piano houses had sent over one
of their blind tuners to fix tip a pianc
and there he had been working away
in the dark, his tools scattered arourio"
the stage and parts of the piano strewn
about"New York Sun.
Hostel and Inn.
At one time the words "hostel" and
"ton" were not confined to licensed
houses, but were applied to lodging
houses. The "inns" of Oxford and
Cambridge, very numerous before the
Introduction of colleges, were regulated
by the college authorities. The inns
of court were provided for the accom
modation of law students. In oldei
times country houses of the aristoc
racy, during the absence of the own
ers, were used as "inns," or guest
houses. It was then the rule to hang
out as signs the arms of the owners
hence the origin of public house signs.
