IMMIGRANTS OF LUZON.
A Poor Mountain People That Ap. pear Happy and Contented. The Igorrotes livein small hut b~:it in clusters -n the slIopcs of thk mn ::ntains. where they can get th< sun and are sheltered fr,m the col w:nds. Fnr though we -ire iot fai rtim the equaztr, we are ;.ooo feel ahw'e the sea. vwe kr.ow what il is t be cold. The heat of the trop ical sun at midday is very grateful af ter the cold night and the accom panying fog. The children go to school with th< babies tied on their backs. But the3 have little sisters at home, too smal to work in the fields; these will lool after the babies. It is not considere< necessary that the women and girl should be educated: they are to d( the hard work in the fields. Th< babies are always carried on th< backs of the mothers while they work or on the back of an older child It is really wonderful how thest people can go about in the cold o: these mountains absolutely naked We. withour clothes on, feeling cold realize that they do feel the cold, bul have no clothes nor anything to mak< clothes of. All they have is a coars< cotton cloth made in various brighi colors by the Hocano;s of the lowlands for which they exchange their camo tes (sweet po'tatoes) and coffee. Th< men invariably carry a bandala o: this cloth, which they wrap arouni themselves when not exercising. lik< a toga. Irrogote houses are built of spli logs and grass. For warmth an< cooking a fire is built in the middl< of the house on the dirt floor. A night all the family lie around it t< sleep, and from time to time one oi another gets up to replenish the fire There is no chimney and the smoki escapes as best it can through a hol in the roof. In consequence of this many Irro gotes have badly inflamed eyes muc of the time, and their hair and skii become filled with soot. The womer and girls, wth their long hair, suffei especially. Rice and corn hang ox roof beams of the house to dry, an< become perfectly black and filled witl soot. With all the seeming hardships o: these children of the mountains, the] are a very contented and happy lot much more so, I fear. thin many whi have everything they want. Suci things as toys are unknown to thenm The boys, however, make tops an< are skillful in spinning them, with banana fiber for a string. The wo men and girls all carry a musical in strument niade of a piece of bambo< which has one end split; this end the; hit against the palm of the hand, th< other end has holes in it, over wvhicl they place the fingers to vary th sounds. It is crude and weird mus ic, but *they are happy with it, ani at times it does sound cheerful. On' * cannot help but love these people, ir spite of their filth and vermin. Mr. Staunton has a school in the vil lage of La Trinidad, three miles frorr our house, attended by about fifty Ilo .canoes and Igorrotes, of all sizes an< ages, from babies to young men an< women. He holds the school in house put tup for a saloon when th< American soldiers were in La Trini dad. THE CRAFTY PERSIAN. Has His Own Quiet Fun Out of His Western Customers. Washington Post. "'I see that Prof. Gottheil, of Co lumbia university, has sued Charles T. Yerks for $3oo-his fee for th< translation of the inscription of on< of Mr. Yerkes' prayer rugs. Tha1 *is a big fee to ask for the translatior of a single sentence. Still, I hop< that the professor gets his money." As he spoke, the Armenian rug doctor darned a Bokhara rug. He dic not use in this work new yarn; h< used-what was many times mor< coatly--yarn 50 or 6o years old. Ex pert rug doctors always use old yar! in darning, for these, with their sof1 and silky hues, match best the olc rugs they repair. "I have seen inscriptions on Per Sian rugs," said the .\rmenian, "thal I would not translate for S3.ooo.'' H< chuckled. "They are odd chaps some of the rug weavers. The: ,have a sense of humor.

But thi4 t weaver. being an artist, did not Ilk< the millionaire's taste. and he xvov in a lozenge near the top: *So hideous is this rug that it, weaver will not sign his name 'to it as is the custom. A curse on th< Western barbarian of Pittsburg whc compels an artist to debase his art. I "The Pittsburg millionaire wantet us to translate that inscription," saic the Armenian. "but we pretended tha we knew no Persian. '*Some of the Persian rugs sent tc America have poetical inscriptions. s(old one yesterday that said: May a young -girl possess me and may she keep her beauty longe than I keep mine.' Last week a lawyer bought a beau tiful Tabriz rug from us. He didn' know that it was inscribed: "'This rug for a liar and thief. pig ot the west, a drunkard, a robbei t of orphans and widows, a coward.' EVANGELIST WHIPPED BULL) Then Ha*d Him on the Front Bend at the Meeting That Night. Baltimore Sun. t A Methodist minister of this cit, tells the following story about thi late Sam Rozel, the great Virgini; evangelist, who in his day was on t of the best known pulpit orators ii the south. "Sam Rozel was a very big mai and had a wide reputation for physi cal strength. In his college days h< came off the field of combat, usuall, a circumscrbed and secluded area o the campus, wearing the laurel o victory on many occasions, and' afte he became a preacher stories of hi: physical prowess were spread far an near. "One day he went to a village t< hold a protracted meeting. The vil lage blacksmith, who was a very bil man, and who was recognized, spe cially among the tavern habitues, a: a pugilisi wonder, heard about th coming of Rozel, and th villagers di< 1not fail to tell him all they had hear< about the size of the parson's arm an< the length of his legs, and of the conl vincing way he had of closing an ar gument with his fists. "All this nettled the smith consider ably, so when Rozel reached the towr he sought him and asked him t Sfight.. "Rozel, of course, said he did no want to fight; but the smith kept or insisting and finally Rozel became an gry and agreed to gratify the f.ellow "They fought. Rozel literal!: wiped up the ground with the bil man. When he had pounded hin until the poor, vanquished bully wn 1gasping hard Rozel pici'ed him up an threw him over the fence. "The blacksmith had not said word since the affray began up to thi: point. As he rolled over on the othe: side of the fence, however, he calle< out: "'Say, parson, kindly throw mn; horse over too, I'm going away. "But Rozel followed the man t< his home, and had him sitting on front bench at the meeting that sam< night singing louder than any on< else." The Impractical Inventor. "Inventors, with all their originalit; and brilliance. are often naive, child :like and impractical." said Gen. WVal lace F. Randolph, of the. general stafi ot ofthe army. An inventor called on me one da' to talk about an explosive he ha( o riginat ed. Tt is the most powerful explosive the wxorld has ever seen.' he said, 'and it is my idea to send it up in a balloor wvith a lighted fuse attached to it The balloon will be sent over the capofth enemy, the explosive wvili go off. and victory will he ours.'
