Scotland's "Daft Days."
So hilarious were the old ceremo
nies of welcoming the new year in
Scotland tluit Iec. 31 and Jan. 1 won
for themselves the designation of "the
daft days." Temperance legislation
has done much in recent years to mod
erate and refine the festivities, which
still, however, assume extensive and
exuberant proportions. Only a few
years ago a - writer in the London
Chronicle in Edinburgh on New Year's
eve saw the "Black Maria" perambu
lating the streets and picking up the
hopelessly dmnken persons from the
pavements and doorsteps for convey
ance to the police station.
It was formerly the custom in Ire
land and Wales to carry a lantern
tastefully decorated with ribbons and
containing a wren, round each hamlet
and village on New Year's day and
make calls on dwellers in cottage and
hall. The bearers-, swinging the lan
tern at each door, would favor all
whom it might concern with a song
and receive a monetary reward.

' The pld Time Stagecoach.
In 1762 there were, strange as it
seems, only six stagecoaches running
in all England.' and of course these
were the only public vehicles for trav
elers. Even these were a "novelty, and
a person named John Crosset thought
they were such a dangerous innovation
that he wrote a pamphlet against them.
"These coachees." he wrote, "make
gentlemen come to London upon every
small occasion, which otherwise they
would not do except upon urgent ne
cessity. Nay. the conveniency of the
passage makes their wires come often
up, who rather than come such long
journeys on horseback would stay at
home. Then when they come to town
they must be in the wade, get fine
clothes, go to plays and treats and by
these means get such a habit of idle
ness and love of pleasure that they are
uneasy after."
Roast Pig In Servia.
The favorite dish of the Servians,
says a writer in the Wide World Magazine,-
consists of a lhmb or sucking pig
roasted whole over ashes. A - pit- is
first dug and -filled with wood vine
branches for choice, as they give the
best flavor and the fire is then allow
ed to burn for several- hours. The car
cass is next Impaled with a stout stick
and slowly turned round and round
over the embers. The result, after six
hours turning, is a very luscious meal,
for all the gravy is kept in and the
meat is unusually tender. - No picnic
in Servia is considered complete with
out this delicacy. A .story goes that
on one of his campaigns Napoleon no
ticed a group of Servian soldiers cook
ing meat in this way. whereupon he
came up, inquired what they were do
ing, tasted the meat and was delighted
with it. '
Races of Mankind.
The races of mankind are five in
number white, "yellow, brown, red
and black, or the Caucasian, Mongo
lian, Malayan. Indian and negro. The
interrelationships of these different
breeds have been the subject of study
with the specialists for ages, but the
disputes are as numerous as they were
when the .study began. Whether the
various races sprang from some one
original race and if so what that orig
inal race was, is a question that is still
in limbo. Between these five races, as
found at present, there are physical,
moral and mental differences so mark
ed as to seem to preclude a common
origin and yet, unless such origin is
assumed, the difficulty of the case is
greatly enhanced. Race origins are an
unsolved problem. New York Ameri

Rainbows That Can Change Sex.
In many parts of the world it is the
general belief that the rainbow has
the power to change sex. This queer
belief obtains in. such widely separated
districts as South Africa and Norway
and China and Australia. The Zulus
have a long folklore story of the young
man who was changed into a wrinkled
old woman by touching the many hued
arch. The Scandinavian peasants have
a similar story, and in Greece they say
that anybody who runs against the end
of the rainbow will have his or her sex
instantly changed. In France and In
dia to pass under the rainbow has a
similar effect.

London, March 14 Vice Admiral Sir
Percy Scott caused a sensation by an
nouncing: that he would quit the Brit
ish navy. "There is no reason," he
said, "for me to remain when I only
block the path to promotion of those
who are my junior in rank . The
navy," he added, "was never more ef
ficient than it is now." He asserted
that gunnery efficiency hae increased
more in the last two moriths than in
the previous five years. The retire
ment of "Vice Admiral Scott is regard
ed in admirality circles as a victory
for the Beresford coterie in naval af
fairs. Other important readjustments
in the higher personnel of the service
are foreshadowed . by the coming
change. Sir Percy and Lord Charles
Beresford figured in November, 1907,
in one of the biggest rows in the Brit
ish navy in recent years, and the feud
has never ceased, though Lord Beres
ford and Lord Fisher are now off the
active list.
THE STOCK MARKET
(T. L. Watson & Co.)
The gold we are lending to Europe
will come back when foreign condi
tions again become normal. Mean
time stocks are down to a point where
exceptionally good returns are made
on the investment. Buying of odd
lots is on the increase, indicating that
investment considerations are begin
ning to work on the mind of the pub
lic. Values prosperity fundamentals
are here, and they will re-establish
themselves in prices when the tempor
ary montary influences of depression
pass away. When investment oppor
tunities present themselves s they are
doing now, ' "the bottom" cannot be
far off.

Anatomik Shoes.
Before Anatomik shoes were invent
ed and patented, persons who were
crippled by brdken instep or so-called
flatfoot, were obliged to hobble about

make, with perhaps metal arches or
braces to aid in walking. Foot suf
ferers can now have their feet fitted
at. Mollan's, 1026 Main street, to shoes
that conform to the natural lines ot
the foot. The weight of the body is
not allowed to fall on weak parts, and
the feet are made easy and comfort
able. Anatomik shoes were designed
by a skilled physician. They are for
men, women and children.
