Marvelous System of Signaling Hat
Long Been One of the Wonders
of the World:
News is carried by drum-beat in
Africa at a rate as fast as the tele
graph, write A. S. Crawley in the
LpiKtyn Daily Mail. .
"The natives of Central Africa have
a wonderful jgy stem of signaling from
village to village by drum-beat," he
"Generally the property of the chief,
these -official drums, which are many,
forming a set of varying size, are as
a rule of the species Ifnown as incision-drum.
This is a long, narrow,
hollow cylinder, made from a tree
trunk, with the ends closed.
"The drum is placed in v either a
horizontal or vertical position, the for
mer producing the best results. Big
drums carry more than ten miles.
"By relay a message may travel
1,000 miles in little more than the
velocity of sound. v
"The driim-telephone depends upon
-an elaborate code of sounds. Eu
ropean travelers often order their din
ner and night's lodging at the next
village by a drum-message. The vil
lagers use it as we use a postal, tele
graph and telephone sen Ice and
there are no charges.
"For the home service the' drum
plays the part also of the church bell,
the clock, the town crier and the daily
newspaper. For instance, Rev. James
Roscoe, whose African adventures and
discoveries have recently been report
ed, notes -that" it announced a birth
or a death, the new moon' and the week
ly fast day. ,
"To help understanding of the mar
velous code, as complete as a lan
guage, the remarks of Sir Arthur B.
Ellis (writing of West Africa) are in
" 'To a European the rhythm of a
drum expresses nothing beyond a re
petition of the same note at different
Intervals of time, but to a native it
expresses much more. To him the
drum can and does speak, the sounds
produced from it forming words and
the whole measure of rhythm a sense.'
"Thus, at a dance of 'companies,' in
one measure they abuse the men of
another company . . . then the rhythm
changesand the gallant deeds of their
own company are extolled. All this,
and much more, is conveyed by the
beating of drums, and the native ear,
trained to detect and interpret each
beat, is never at fault."
It It often convenient to have a ce

fifty parts of sulphur, one part of
resin and one part of tallow. Take

Midget Babies Often Thrive.
Parents whose children are abnor
mally small at birth can take heart,
for recent; njures show that tiny In
fants frequently grow, m a,uite robust,
and of normal proportions. Accord
ing to the observations of an English
doctor, a girl baby born 13 years ago,
to a Mrs. Warwick of Barrow-in-Furness,
for instance, weighed only one
and three-qarter pounds. She now
turns the scale at 150 pounds, and is
an exceptionally healthy and intelli
Even more remarkable is the case
of Leonard Merrick, who stands over
6 feet high and weighs 180 pounds, all
brawn and muscle and sinew. At his
birth, 25 years ago, he weighed only
15 ounces, his head was not much big
ger than a billiard ball, the mouth
was only just about the size of the
end of a pencil, and the mother's wed
ding ring would slip easily up the arm'
as high as theyshoulder.
A, baby exhibited at one of the meet
ings of the British Obstetrical society
weighed only 20 ounces and the Medi
cal Times once announced the birth of
one that turned the scale at exactly
one pound. Both these grew up strong
and healthy, and of normal propor
tions. In short, a small infant seems
likely to do as well as a big one, al
ways provided, of course, that it sur
vives the perils of babyhood.
Gilbert K. Chesterton said the oth
er day in New York:
"I am sick of the great horde of
free verse poets, that has sprung up
among us. These little wretches grind
out a few hundred words of silly twad
dle that is without rhyme and with
out reason, and then they think them
selves the superiors of Swinburne.
"At the Greenwich village tea yes
terday a scrawny little free verse poet
"Tm awfully sorry D'Annunzio
has capitulated, you know.'
" 'Are you?' asked an old maid In
tandals. 'Why?'" x

crowded market,' said the poet, 'that

Oil-soaked hair is a novel form of
coiffure introduced by the Russian b'al
let, which recently opened in Paris.
The women dancers have cut their
hair short and so saturated it with
oil that it looks like a skullcap. Their
eyebrows are painted in a long fine
line, which runs right back to the
vroots of the hair, giving the face the
appearance of a Polish doll.
"The time has come," said Mr.
Brick's wife, "when woman may for
sake the light, ephemeral things of life
and take up-yfce heavy subject.".
And her husband rejoined wearily,:
"Are you going to mite Dre&ja at n
again, Maria?" , "
