Recently a man undo application to a
wellknown sanitarium in Pennsylvania
for the removal of tattoo marks which he
bore all over his body They were in
colors of red blue and purple and were
so disfiguring that they struck terror into
the children on the streets so that the
little ones fled to their homes whenever
he appeared among them On close ex
amination it was found that the winged
lion and the zodiac were among the
figures tattooed on his back and breast
The man told a strange story He had
up to five years ago been a seaman In
a storm such as they have on the South
Atlantic ocean his ship was wrecked
and he and several companions were
driven to the coast of Patagonia Here
they were captured by a tribe of cannibals
His companions were promptly killed
and eaten before his eyes but being sur
feited with white man for the time being
they carried him off and tatooed him car a
pie Becoming somewhat attached to
him for his many feats of daring they de
termined to adopt him He bided his
time tilla few months ago when he
managed to escape and being taken
aboard a passing vessel was landed in
Philadelphia Now the question arises
how did an obscure fierce tribe in a re
mote part of the globe like Patagonia
know of these symbols and religions
characters which were supposed to be
long to the Egyptians That they might
have formerly been of the same race s
not improbable but therein lies the mys
tery
Dr George F Becker of the Geological
Survey has returned from a scientific ex
ploration of the Philippine bringing with
him two specimens of the dwarf Aetas or
Little Niggers who are believed to be
the missing link between man and the
monkey The skeletons will be kept at
the National Museum The Aetas are a
tribe of the lowest human beings on
earth They were the earliest inhabi
tants of Polynesia The men average
four feeteight inches in height The
women are three to four inches shorter
Both sexes bean striking resemblance to
apes Their heads seem too large for
their bodies their jaws project forward
and their faces are wrinkled in deep lines
like those of monkeys They live wild
in the forests of their country sowing no
grain nor planting for sustenance They
carry on a queer traffic in gold precious
stones rare plants and birds skins They
give them in exchange for small mirrors
or other articles which they covet The
traders deposit little luxuries and articles
of adornment in secret places whence
they are carried away by these queer peo
ple and rare gems or beautiful bird skins
put in their pieces for their civilized
neighbors The arm bones of these
Little Niggers are so long that even
when standing they can easily reach their
knees Their feet ire not shaped as ours
r if nfPinl1 h prnnnr
tionedand the remaining 1 smaller toes
turn inward like those of home monkeys
Altogether ethnologists are satisfied that
this queer tribe possesses characteristics
that entitle them to the claim of the
missing link
The zobo is the latest musical invention
It is rapidly becoming a favorite withI I
schools campaign clubs military cOIn
panies and in fact with any gathering I
of young folks who wish to form brass
bands without having to engage in the
labor of learning as has heretofore beenI I
the custom The fad has not yet reached I
us but by and by it will simmer alongI I
Any one who can hum a tune can be
come a performer on a brass instrument 1
by means of the zobo Many schools iuI I
New York are now the proud and happy 1
possessors of a brass band and the girls I
with cornets and piccolos stand side by
side with the boys holding saxophones
long slide trombones and brass horns
nearly two feet in length with broadI I
trumpet ends A band of any number ofJ J
fitted A drum is
pieces can be out I
usually obtained and a fullfledged brass
band is the result
One of the most beautiful works ofI I
charity in Paris is that which renders
assistance to poor women and young
children It was founded by Queen Marie
Antoinette Among the poor mothers
whom it helps none ever suffered more 1
keenly nor drank more deeply of the cup
of woe than did the beautiful founder of
this royal charity From the moment of
its birth says the Providence Visitor the
child of the poor is cared for The Presi
dents of this society bear the greatest
names in France and they distribute to
the women clothes and food for their
babies Ladies of highest birth visit
their poor proteges and give them be
sides their alms their personal sympathy
and interest which to many refined na
tures is far more than most abundant
alms When the mothers of many of
these children are obliged to leave home
to become breadwinners another society I
ciety called the Creches or Home
for Infants receives children from fifteen
days to three yearsold and are kept daily
for a trifling sum each The Ecoles
Maternelles continue the work of the
creches and teach the children frogs j I
two to seven years how to read and write I
From these infant schools which in a
multitude of respects are away ahead of
the kindergarten as we have it the little
students leave at pix years old to enter
another school graded from six to thir
teen years At this latter age the chil
dren leave the school to learn a trade
The beauty of thcselCecoleslt schools
lies in the perfect system and method
adopted by their originator and trustees
All throughput these thirteen years the
faith is taught to the little ones and their
morals carefully and lovingly guarded
Their existence is a striking proof of the
generosity of French Catholic
