?Women in Welcoming Party.
; Prof. Carl Lumholtz, in his bo'?k,
"Through Central Borneo," gives an
j intimate description of head hunting
| anions the tribes there, lie jjives a
description of a raid by ten Bukats
upon a small party of Saputans who
were <.?n a hum. The slayers hurried
with three heads.
The fast night out the head hunters
j always sleep near their own kapong.
| and early next morning, while it is
i still dark, they come singing. The peo1
ulf of the kaninons: awake, array them
i selves in their best finery and go to
meet them, the wo-un wearing their
newest skirts and bringing pieces of
| cloth to present to the conquerors. A
! head^is carried suspended from the
; conqueror's neck until it is taken from
j him by a woman, who gives him a
j piece of cloth to wear instead, posJ
sibly as a badge of heroism. It makes
no difference whether this service is
performed by his wife, by another
woman or by another man's wife.
Heads are then hung from a beam in
the house of the kapala. and the cloths
j are returned to the women. The head
; hunters must take their food apart
' from their associates, and in the presence
of the heads they have taken.
At meais a pinch of rice is put into
a hole made with a spear point in the
top of the skull, and the head is addressed
in certain words: "Eat this
rice. Don't lie angry. Tal? care of
1 me. Make this body of :u ae well."
I During the period of r. ?: : i-.iions imi
posed upon the hunters ' heads re:
main in the same place, sharing the
meals in this manner. After twelve
days no more food is offered the

1 of Kandy wear. The sarong was all
that the majority of women asked in
the days when Kandy formed the background
for the pageantry of an ori
e:Jtal court. Kandy was the last
! stronghold of the Sinhalese rulers.
I Portuguese and Dutch tried tn vaifl

tain kingdom; but the way to Kandy
I was through narrow passes, surrounaI
ed by jungles. Many lives were lost
in vain assaults. For 20 years after
i the British took Ceylon the last kins;
I of Kandy successfully resisted i^va;
sion. Finally, in 1S35, he was <:*pI
tured and sent into exile. The t? ioi

the intrigue and treachery and
cruelty and extortion that blackeued
the last years of Singalese rule in
Ceylon. Those dark years are forgot'

Poets of the Sea.
It seems that the sea is an AngloSaxon
heritage. English literature reflects
it, and its moods have ever been
portrayed in English verse. To the
North, the Scottish bards sang of their
own wild headlands and skerries, to
the South, the Devons followed Drake
and Frobisher to the Seven Seas.
Surprisingly, some of the world's
greatest poems are epics of open water.

Nowadays, the Angio-Saxons hold the

Proof Th?i Birds Capable of Lifting
and Carrying Off FulI-Grov/n
Men Once Existed.
J'ecent scVntifie discoveries In vnri.
ous parts oi the world go to prove that
; in UTn-*s ! :rjg gone by there were birds
j big to lift a man into the air
; with<" ' liiculty, observes a London
; Tit-I writer.
; It .s well known that an eagle with '
: a five-feet spread of wings ran lift a
; lamb weighing ten pounds, and that a
I bkd can generally lift one-half m?>re
| than frs ">*,vn weight. Many of the
eno: ' birds of. ancient times
j weig!>-'- many hundreds of pounds.
i and some or tnem nau a spread or
i wind's which would cover a present;
day street car. ;
: There once lived in the Rocky inoun|
tains of America a race of parrots
I seven feet high. One nearly complete '
: skeleton ' of this remarkable species
; has been preserved, and fragments of ;
others have recently been dug up.
These parrots are supposed to have
i j trodden the earth about 3,000,000
| years ago.
I Another amazing creature was a
I running bird of prey of the heron fam:
ily. It had a head larger than that of ;
i a horse, with a huge sharp beak, and .
; ' was eight feet high. Like the parrot,
; it could not fly to any height, as its
i wings were not large enough to sup- .
port it. i
In the island of Madagascar there :
i used to be an enormous bird called !
i j the aep.vornis. This creature was ten ,
' j feet high and laid eggs thirteen inches ;
j long and three feet in circumference. !
! It is supposed to have become extinct j
j only little more than a centiu-y ago.
Although the aepyornis must have '
i i been a sufficiently awe-inspiring sight, j
j the "giant moa" of New Zealand, i
| which stood 14 feet high and weighed I
| at least half a ton, must have been j
; even more so.
j Not Even the Smallest Variation Takes
Place From Infancy to Extreme
Old Age.
The use of finger prints as a means i
^ of identification was first made prac- I
tical and put into operation by Sir ^
| William Hersehel of the Indian civil
i service in the police department of
I Bengal. The lineatiMiis of the thumb :
and fingers have, h-> vev.-r, attracted :
the atention of scientists for at least J
a century. J
The ridges and patterns are of four .
; primary types. First, arches, in which i
j the ridges run from one side to the
j other, but make no backward turn;
< second, loops, in which some of the
j ridges make a backward turn but
are devoid of twists; third, whirls, j
In which some of the ridges make a i
>| Turn tnrougn ai ieusi one compic-ie ?
J circuit; and fourth, composite, where
' two or more of the first three patterns
nre combined in the same imprint.
It has been demonstrated that these !
! Assigns persist unchanged in the small- :
est detail throughout the individual's
t life, and that there are no two persons
whose imprints are identical. The
design on the fingers of a new-bom
Infant are easily recognizable in the
same person in old age. i

Key to Egyptian Hierogryphics.
1 The Hosetta stone, one of the most
celebrated archeological discoveries of
1 modern times, is famous for being the
I key whereby the decipherment of the
! Vvvr.r^ MMmfrlvnhifs was made nos- !
1 ...v. vovr? *
j eible. It * as found in 1709 near Ros- <
| erta. I^ypt, by an officer of engineers
i In thv -French army, which was then
| in occupation of that country. j
! The stone is a slab of black basalt,
! end bears an inscription In honor of .
j Ptolemy Epiphanes, written in three
hr.; ?Greek, demotic and hieroj
plyAs the three inscriptions are
j of identical significance, the Greek
1 j made easy the deciphering of the
i others.
Until the discovery of the stono j
[ archeologists had no key to Egyp- j
tian hieroglyphics, but since that !
time all of Egypt's sculptured litera- :
ture has been read with ease and j
much valuable information given to I
( the world.

Miss Maude Fulmer
The State.
Little Mountain, June 8.? Miss;
Maude Fulmer, a beloved young woman
of this place, died Wednesday
afternoon at 7 o'clock after a short,
illness of typhoid fever.
Miss Fulmer was an operator for
the local telephone exchange and was
ever kind, courteous and considerate.'
Her voice had become familiar to the
hundreds of people whom she faith- [
fully served. In her home she wasj
a dependable daughter and sister. Toi
her friends she was a woman of many j
fine traits of character and of a lov-j
ing disposition.
Funeral services were conducted;
Thursday afternoon at Holy Trinity
Lutheran church, of which she was a
loyal and consistent member, by her
pastor, the Rev. J. J. Long. Inter-!
ment was in the Little Mountain cemetery.
The many floral designs bore
testimnoy to her popularity and to
the esteem in which she was held.
She is survived by her parents, Mr.
and Mrs. P. B. Fulmer, and the fol-j
lowing brothers and sisters: Keister
and Ward Fulmer of Columbia, Mrs.
Leland Hartley of Lexington and
Henry, Heyward and Catherine Fulmer
of Little Mountain.
"Many Friends" who bring out a
candidate are usually one man and
that man the candidate himself.
One of the pleasantest experiences
of life is meeting a fellow to whom
even your oldest stories are new.

Matthews, deceased, arev hereby no-|
