THE GIRLS SMOKE, TOO.
The Burmese will sacrifice any prospect
of money making to go to a feast. These
are called pives, and often the entertain
ment is elaborate. I remember going to
one in Upper Burma. There was a good
deal of dancing, but neither the host nor
liis guest danced; that would have been
undignified. The dancers were paid, and
they twirled lazily or Jumped excitedly as
occasion reciuired. Most of the time,
however, was spent in chatter and smok
ing. Smoking is the only thing at which
the Burmese are industrious. They start
smoking at the early age of three, and
they smoke themselves Into the next
world. Girls smoke rtuite as arduously as
j the men, and as the cigars are very big
■ many a pretty mouth is strained to ac
commodate a giant cheroot.
