STOUFER. aots County Clerk THE GYPSIES THE PEOPLE OF MYSTERY . George Burrows relates that tho first gypsies made their appearance in Moldavia in 1417, arid no one seems to be very certain about from whence they tame. The original 3000 increased to formidable pro- portions in a century or so, and Maria and Joseph II tried to civilize them, with no success. , In the early days each little band had1 a captain whom they honored with the title of count To secure the title, the leader had to be val ient and courageous in the pillaging expeditions for food, and sagacious and crafy enough to settle their dis putes.. For this he was allowed a third of anything the band stole.' -' Despite their marauding tendencies and their' more or less contemptuous attitude toward people not "of the blood" they have a code of morals which contain many excellent charac teristics. A true gypsy must.not have a quarrelsome disposition, and he never reveals the secret of the broth erhood. Though they make the rest of mankind thejr lawi'il prey, they are capable of great sacrifices for each other. : Thej pledge themselves never to marry out of their own sect Spring Frocks Daintiest Description MakeTheir Initial Bow in our Ready-to- Wear Department Redfern Suits Lovely new dresses, those veritable stand bys of the wardrobe lend a practical side to these new frocks- Not too fussy for the street, yet smart enough for afternoon -affairs-they're ideal, all-around dresses for the first warm days.

Boles nor will they teach their language to anyone not a gypsy by blood Or adop tion. Their daredevil spirit, perhaps, has had a passing influence on most of the countries in which these wander ers have lived. At least, England is accredited with having contracted her love of horse racing from them, and they are nearly always to be found among jockeys and in atten dance upon her derbys. These might be children of Cain, or the Wandering Jew. They are the most beautiful races of the world in their youth.

But they realize the monetary i value of the myth concerning their ability to divine; the future, and' have, since the beginning of history, capitalized it.
