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

American soldiers were in La Trini

THE CRAFTY PERSIAN.

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<

that the professor gets his money."
As he spoke, the Armenian rug

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(

BIACDRAUG
THE GREAT
FAMILY MEDICINE
Thedford's Black-Draught has
saved doctors' bills for more than E
sixty years. For the common fam
ily ailments, such as constipation,
indigestion, hard colds, bowel com
plaints, chills and fever, bilious
ness, headaches and other like
complaints no other medicine is
necessary. It invigorates and reg
ulates the liver, assists dizestion,
stimulates action of the kidneys,
purifies the blood, and purges the
bowels of foul accumulations. It
cures liver complaint, indigestion,
sour stomach, dizziness, chills,
rheumatic pains, sideache, back
ache, kidney troubles, constipation,
diarrhcea, biliousness, pil, hard
colds and headache. E drug
gist has Thedford's Black- ught
m 25 cent packages and in mam
moth size for $1.00. Never accept
a substitute. Insist on having the
original made by the Chattanooga
Meiicine Company.
r I believe Thedford's Black.Draught
is the best medicine on earth. It is
good for any and everything. I have
a family of twelve children, and for
four years I have kept them on foot
and healthy with no doctor but Black
Draught. A. J. GRFEN, llewara La.
