Bunch of Straw, for Instance. Has ,
Ma^.y Meanings, Scraewixat Caffling
to the Urvmtiated.
' In many streets of c'outLiental ;
Europe are still to he seen si:: as. or
unwritten words?, which haw no sneii
, clear significance as the hat oei'ore ;
a hatter's shop or the hoot hoiVre a '
Cobbler's. Certain i' these s:gns are \
so obscure in origin and meaning thai 1
no one cou'd understand them with- j
out reference to tradition or uie passers-ty.
! Everybody in ti'is country knows
tnat a pole painted with spirals t.f ,
red, white and blue is the usual si--;:
before ;i barber's shop. iiut i:?>w few ,
know that tiie stripes are supposed ;
by some persons t" represent surgical j
bandages? That was when barbers !
performed simple surgical operations, j
Before many barber shops in Kurope I
small brass plates are hung. These i
are oval, concave and curiously j
scooped out on one side, as if a piece
had been bitten out of it. This repre- ;
sents the old-fashioned cupping dish
which barber chirurgeoiis. <>r surgeons. ,
used in taking blood from pati, :its. i
Who would naturally suppose that j
mats of straw, loosely plaited and [
fastened to the corners of buildings i
signify, that oysters arfc there for !
sale? But this is their meaning. Jn j
Europe oysters are never eaten ex- :
ceyi nnv, ana :u uuiu wciiiuci uu> (
are exposed on the sidewalk beside a I
man ready to open ftoeiu for custom- ;
ers. In bad weather, when the oysters j
are not exposed, persons who ea'5c read i
may find them mentioned among the j
names of fish on the shop's placards. ;
but the mats are then expected to !
^inform the illiterate on the point.
, Ti;e old proverb. "Good wine needs
no bush.'* refers-to the <-ustoiii\of put- i
tin:; a bush before a wine shop door |
as a sign. Sometimes a bran: h is :
placed above the <!<>;>; instead. Often ]
no name or any, other sign is displayed |
by the wine seller.
Such a bush may be of any tree com- !
mon to tiie locality. In the North it j

branch of mistletoe. In the South it j
Is almost always olive or myrtle..and j
generally renewed on fete days. The !
bushes have acquired the name "bouch- j
ons" in France and this is applied to '
small taverns also.
The ancient usage of hanging a
bush over the door is obsolete in cities. '
but'was doubtless the origin of the ;
habit of placing small evergreens in ;
portable wooden boxes outside cafes '
and restaurants in Paris and other j
large communities.
A common sight in Paris is that of ;
Horses Ie(i tnrougn tue sir^ors wmi |
benches of straw tied to tlieir rails ;
Tfcis signiiiei; that these animals are j
for Vale. In fact, a bunch of straw :
t-ed to any object can always inter- :
preted to mean that the present owner j
Is ready to enter into negotiations with I
any one who takes a fancy to his :
Thus, as he passes along the streets
one sees baby carriages, bicycles or
any second-hand furniture with the
bunch of straw attached. He who 1
runs may reail such a siirn even better j
than a written or printed card.
It serves another end ;is well, for
advertisements can be taxed, wluie ;
there is no tax on a bunch of straw.
In France, unless an owner has ;i !
regular license to sell, he must place
a government stamp on any sign or '
writing hung at the floor. In the j
san+e way even a dressmaker or shoe- |
maker in want of apprentices must
])vt a government stamp on any no 1
tice so displayed
curious instance of this use of
straw used to be seen near English i
law courts of the Eighteenth century. !
Men willing to bail criminals or debt- j
crs were soon parading with straw in ;
their shoes, thus sijniifvins: tha* they ;
would bail fur pay. Thus worthless ;
bail caiae to be called "'straw bail." '
Hew the Caribs Bury Their Dead.
Tlie Caribs. the aboriginal inhabi- j
tants of Jho West Indies, once exceed- !
inirjy numerous, are now virtually ex- ;
tinet as an ethnic irronp. At present j
there are practically no pure-strain i
Caribs in the islands excejA in i>>mioa. :
This ic chiefly due to the treatment
"which tlie native population received
at the hands of tlie Spanish and 1 lie
later persecutions and abuses by the I
early French. The slave trade began
in t1 islands soon after the coming }
of (. oiuillbus.
Tlie chief deities anion? the natives
iwere good and bad spirits, and they .
alsx> worshiped tlie sun. moon and !
stars. The i'ee-ay-man. a kind of I
jsorcerer. was the medicine man of tlie
tribe, and he effected Ids cures by
, 'invoking the good spi. it of some bird
or animal. meanwhile making dlaM- i

Savages of New Guinea May Be Picturesque,
but Their Society Has
its Drawbacks.
The Krtja Kaja savages of New
<?uinoa, who have ;i reputation f<?r
bravery and are powerfully !>t:ilt. jminr
tiioir foreheads red or black with v. iiir??
circles around the eyes. Thtir ii'istrils
are frequently adoj-ned with the claws
of liirtls? of prey or the tm.ks of wild
I>iirs. From the lobes of their ears the
most extraordinary variety of objects
may be suspended; M. Xeyons describes
one warrior who proudiy wore
an old coffee pot as an ear ornament.
The bodies of the natives ;ite usually
tattooed with figures in relief. The
tattooing necessitates a painful operation
in \\hich the patient, stretched on
the sand, is liters My basted with a
cliorrk hoinVurk invfi-n'nrtiif :lt'?er which
the numerous slashes are filled with a
.sort of clay.
The Kaja Kaja never bathe; instead,
the body is rubbed with a variety
of oils which give off an insupportable
odor, augmented, it may be added,
by the d?vonr,?osing skins which
they wear as arm decorations.
Flowers That Are Weather Propr.ets.
We hear a good deal of birds and
animals as weather prophets, but are
apt to overlook the wonderful little
barometers which grow at our feet in
^ the fields.
What doe*; daisy mean? Nothing but
"day's eye." The daisy opens wide
for a tine .day, but when rain is coming
wraps up its center and protects
it by mean? of folding straylike outer
petals over the central, tubular
The dandelion has a similar habit.
Rest known of all such prophetical
plants is the scarlet pimpernel, the
'poor man's weather glass," which is
really a capital barometer. If it opens
wide in the morning, you '-an safely
ber against rain before night. When
cbiclc wood flowers are fully open,
you are safe from rain for many
hours, but when on a seemingly fair
morning the tinv blooms are slov.* to
disclose themselves, then it will rain
before sundown.
"Bird of Passage."
The earliest use of the term "bird
of passage" is found in eighteenth
hook or' the Natural History of I 'liny
the Elder (28-27 A. !>.), where he says:
"The bird <>f passage known to u< as
the cuckoo." and the term has since
been applied ro birds which migrate
with a season from a colder r?> a
warmer, or from a warmer to a colder
climate, divided into summer birds <>f
passage and winter birds of passage.
Kuch birds always breed in the roantry
to which They resort in summer,
that is. in the colder of their homes.

The first <??nvi?*tion was made
possible. as the Herald explains, un<fer
a ruling of tin* I"nite?l Stales Supreme
court whirl) ref*<es to allow a
federal court bankruptcy proceedings
to "he a shield l'or s;k-1j liagrant crookedness
as hucketshop operations."
Siiu-e it 1'onaerly was the custom of
I>ucketshop operators to take refuge in
bankruptcy proceedings and receiversliips.
;ynl thus keep their books beyond
tlie reach of prosecuting attorneys,
the handicap under which these
uiik't rs worked prior to,the Supreme
court j tilinjr can easily V . seen.
What is a hucketshof) operator, or
"bucket eer." as he is ol'ten called? The
staid and forma* definition of the dielionary
is that he is one who operates
a shop\which uses the terms and outward
forms of rhe exchanges, but who
has no intention to deliver or receive
securities. Newspaper editors are less
charitable in their definitions. '"He is
a sure-thin^ better," asserts the New
York World, while in the opinion of
the rrovjdsnce Journal lie is merely
"an ordinary thiol", and should be
prosecuted as such." As this paper
"The unwary customer takes his
money to the bucketshop in the conlii
ilence that it will be used for tlie purcliase
of stock. As a rule, of course,
the intended investment is only a speculative
and marginal one, but if the
margin is accepted as sufiicient it is
the broker's duty ro make the purchase.
No purchases are made in a
bucketsliop, nor are sales. The customer
pays for a service which, he is
. told has been rendered, but which has
not been."
: ' Unless the la takes a hand, the
operator cannot well Jose," notes the
New York World: In the; recent conviction
and sentence of? the New York
"broker." who, according to the judge,
~;"entered into a scheme to 11 eece. people
in modest circumstances out of
their hard-earned savings," a "small
fish" was caught; "but," predicts the
Philadelphia Public Ledger, "when the
prosecuting authorities hale into court
i some of the big men. and make a seriI
ous effort to convict them of bucket;
ing, this sort of thievery will not be
so common as it is today."
Japanese Courtesy.
! Social service is manifestly a very
re:;l service in Japan, where a most
solicitous interest in the welfare of
the public is shown even by municipal
authorities. "in the most unexpected
places!" says Miss Mary Page, a V.
\Y. C. A. worker in Kyoto, Japan,
! "we find a keen enthusiasm for every
variety of service which tends to
heighten the standard of living. For
instance, when it rains -here in Kyoto
our police boxes hang out little signs.
'We lend umbrellas.* and the poor, benighted
souls who have ventured oifi
without their picturesque rain para
sols are able to go home safe and dry
! ?free of charge! On the street corner
the other day I saw a bicycle
rack equipped with all sorts of tools
and pumps labeled, 'Please Use
; Freely.'" Quite in keeping with the
j general attitude of quaint courtesy is
! the act of the keeper of grass plots
in one Japanese city, who, not caring
i to hurt his fellow citizens by a peremptory
"Keep Off the Grass," put
up a sign which read: "Much more
better that you go round."/
