MENE AND ZAKSKTXER.
New York. Nov. 24 There nre boys and
girls in New York of almost every tribe
nnd nation, rven two little Ksktmo chil
dren mav bo numbered among the assorted
lot of humanity that calls the jrreat city its
These two little children of dull, yellow
complexions and straight Mack locks have
been adopted by American", and tegard
the families into which they have been
taken as their own. At present their like
nesses are being copied with exactness in
tinted clay for the American Museum of
Natural History. It is a woman artist
who is carryinjr out this task, and It was
in the museum's modeling-room that Miss
Meagher -was found one mornlns recently
mislly entrased in rrttlnir just the tint of
the boy Mene's cheeks, atid the dark shade
of little Zaksriner's hair.
The Eskimo 1oy is one of the two surviv
ItiE members of a band of six Eskimos
brought several years apo from a point on
the northwest coast of Greenland. CuO miles
within the Arctis Circle. Four of this little
band fell victims to tuberculosis. Mene's
parents being among them. One returned
to his Northern home, and little Mene was
adopted by Superintendent 'William Wallace
of the American Museum of Natural His
tory. Mene Is now 10 years old. and as
bright as the average American boy. He
attends faithfully to his lestons, and Is de
voted to outdoor sports, especially foothill.
Mene looks upon a newspaperman as
a part of everyday life. He has been in
terviewed so mam- times that he does not
now regard It as a novelty, though he is
of a quiet and reserved disposition, and one
can easily judqe from his manner that lie
shrinks from an thing like "'.hotting off."
With the lolks about the museum he i a
general f.ivorite. On his way to the fifth
tloor studio the boy made a dozen stops to
shako hinds With his many friends, who
greeted him cordially.
The little Eskimo girl. Zaksnncr. is onlv
! pjrs- old. Her name mean- "one of two,"
at'd it has a pathetic significance when
taken in connection with the fact that her
twin -ister. Artamihnke ("IJltle Pish"),
who was brought wuh her from Southern
Alaska by a scientific explorer two ears
ago. died soon after reaching New Yolk.
Zaksrii.er has been taken in hand by Slit's
Meagher, ami is as devoted to her benefac
tress as Mene is to Mr. and Mrs. Walliice.
Mene and "Zaks," as she is called for
short, have few Eskimo words in common.
Their dialects" are almost entirtly different.
The boy comes from the remotest northern
limit known to be inhabited by the -human
race, while the girl is from the southernmost
hibit.it of the nkimo familv. Mene's com
plexion l" darker and ruddier. than that of
Zakr, whoso whole cast of features-suggests
the palms of the southern island rather than
the snowy wastes of the North. The liov'ss
face and figure is of an altogether stockier
and heavier build than tho girl's.
The little Alaskan girl has made greater
progress, in the English language than has
the Greenland bov, and she also remembers
more of her native words. Mene can sing
several strains of the weird songs of his;
people, and little Ziks follows him with
longer fragments. Mene can tell some vcrv
interesting tales of tho Arctic Circle, anil
little Zskn does rome descriptive dance",
going from one pose to another in a regu
lar rythmic scries to thp clapping of Miss
Meagher's bands. Xaks is a pupil in a pri
vate school, and one of her accomplish
ments is drawing. Tho children appear to
be in excellent health.

If I hed been guessing In those days who

for she was in every way. She had such

be a President's wife.
"Still, I would not have thought of that
then. There were others more show v.

There sre few vomen who arc not seized with uncanny forebodings as they
approach the period of childbirth. They imagine some terrible trial is about to
overtake them. And a trial it is to a woman whose life and strength are drained
by female diseases. But a strong and healthy woman who takes an occasional
dose of Wine of Cardui, may hail with joy the coming of her child. Nature in
tended this great medicine for your use at this time. You should not needlessly
endure the grinding tortures of female ills. Unhealthy or weak organs make
will prepare you for the ordeai of childbirth by strengthening the organs which
make you a woman and by creating a fund of constitutional energy which makes
delivery comparatively painless. If you are an expectant mother you should take
Wine of Cardui to lessen the pain of labor and dispel the nervous terrors of preg
nancy. Thousands of women use it at this period. All druggists sell. $1.00 bottles.
