worthy manner. They are a soldierly,
intelligent body of men, and will uu
loubtedly boa valuable auxiliary to
;he new marine garrison that has ar
•ived on the United States steamship
Yosemite. Their best sphere of use
fulness would be as a police force and
is rural guards in the outlying vil
ages, thus relieving the marines of
ibis isolated and monotonous duty.
The natives of Guam are in pleasing
contrast to the Filipinos. Though
originally, in great part, from the
same stock, they have inherited all of
the virtues and few of the vices of
tiese people. There rs in the blood
of these people a considerable pro
portion of Spanish, South Ameri
can, and American stock, the last
being due to the whaling-vessels
that used to frequent the island in
largo numbers to obtain fresh watex
iml to recuperate their crews. It is
not at all unusual to hear English
spoken, even iu the interior of the*
island, and. iu fact, it is quite as
common a l * Spanish. In personal ap
pearance the natives resemble the
Filipinos, though of a greater stature
i aud more robust, while the hair is not
! so bristling ami porcupiae-like, and
brown or even blond hair is occa
sional evidence of the mixture of
races. The intelligence, ns indicated
by their faces, is much more marked

rounded figures and au excellent car
riage, which redeems to a great ex
tent their shortness of stature and
consequent tendency to dumpiness.
In my long walks about Agana I have
noticed many that were very comely
and some that were decidedly pretty.
As they age tbe.V do not become un
duly fat, oi later" on repulsively hag
gard, as is the case with so many
tropical natives.
Their dress is neat and clean, and
in their personal habits they are mod
est aud tidy. For the women the cos
tume is a short chemise, or jacket,
with low neck aud short sleeves. This
is made of white material of varying
degrees of fineness. For more cere
monial occasions it is embroidered
around tho neck and upon the sleeves,
and ia sometimes bordered with lace.
It fits closely to the stayless figure.
Upon occasions of the greatest im
poriance au elaborate jacket of the
beautiful and expensive juna cloth.
with flowing sleeves and wide collar,
is worn over the chemise. With this
is worn a skirt of vari-colored calico
or cotton stuff, generally of some
bright hue. The feet are usually bare,
small heelless slippers of colored
leather being occasionally seen. The
hair is drawn back from the forehead
in a knot, and hats are never worn.
In church a white cloth is worn as a
veil over the head.
The men dress simply and comfort
ably, generally in suits of white drill-
ing, such as are common all through
the East. The Filipino custom of
wearing a white shirt with long and
flowing tails is in favor among the
poorer natives.
One of the first things evident tons
is the decided antipathy of the natives
for the Pilipinos. There are few of them
upon the island, and these are not at
all regarded with favor. In truth,
they seem to be quite as unruly here
as they are in their home, aud their
qualities make them about the only
disturbing element in this peaceful,
well-disposed people. The only pris
oner in the jail of the place was an
ugly-looking Filipino, who had mur
dered a German trader about a year
ago, and was sentenced to a long
terra of confinement.
The population of Guam is about
7000, mostly of the Malay type. The
principal towm is Agana, with 04<5
inhabitants. There are several Span
ish families worth from $20,000 to
850,000.
As to the mental and moral character
istics of our new citizens, all that we
know so far is of a favorable nature.
They are cleauly, intelligent and
peaceable. The great majority of
them can read and write, aud every
village has its school for instruction
in the elementary branches. They
are modest aud very courteous in their
deportment, and invariably touch
their hats to us when we pass them,
and are most generous to visitors.
The worst trait, however, of the
citizen of Guam is indolence. Nature
is so provideut, and so warm and
smiling here, that little effort is re

quired to support life and provide
sustenance for the family. To pay a
native by the day or in advance is a
fatal error indeed, for be will uork
until he has accumulated a few dol
lars, then buy his wife anew skirt,
lay iu a supply of cauued goods at the
store, some tobacco and tuba (cocoa
nut rum), aud then retire to a life of
affluent ease for as many mouths as
the money aud supplies hold out.
Intoxication is very rare. Men and
women alike smoke cigars and pipes,
and nearly every one has the unsight
ly habit of chewing the betel-nut.
The native cigar is an object of wonder
to the new-comer. It is made from the
whole leaf of the native tobacco,which
is of most excellent flavor, but very
strong and green, rolled into a cylin
der about eight inches long, and
wound about with threads of fibre to
keep it from unwrapping.
With the example of American en
ergy and industry; with advanced ed
ucation, and with the influences of
progress; with a strong and just gov
ernment and purified religious exam
ple and instruction —there opens be
fore the inhabitant of Guam a most
promising future; and before us,whose
duty it is to plant here a model col
ony, there lies a most interesting ex
perience and labor, of the ultimate
success of which there can be no pos
sible doubt.

Miss Maiulo Gonne Lecturing: to Work

The Boer war is affecting Ireland
socially, as many of the bravest of
ficers who are prominent figures in that
unfortunate campaign are members of
Irish families, or else very well known
in Ireland, Colonel Pilcher, the hero
of the raid on Douglas, married into
an Anglo-Irish family, and perhaps it
will be some indication of how people
are divided, even in their family rela
tionship, on this war, that his wife is
the sister of Miss Maude Goune—one
of the most vehemeueut opponents of
the war,
I do not know what Mrs. Pilcher is
like, but if she bear any resemblance
to her sister she mast boa woman of
great attractions, for Miss Maude
Goune is one of the handsomest wom
en in the world. Extremely tall for
a woman—she must bo at least six
feet high—with a fine, beautifully
proportioned figure, with regular fea

turcs, lustrous black eyes and a deli
cate complexion. Miss Maude Goune
attracts attention wherever she goes.
At present she is in the United
States lecturing in favor of the Boers.
In regard to her mission here she said,
recently: ‘Tcame to America to lec
ture in behalf of the Boers and to stir
up if possible a pro-Boer sentiment
among the Americans. At least, such
was my idea when I left the other side,
for the English papers had led me to
believe that America was wholly with
the English in the present conflict,
but from wbat I have seen and heard
since my arrival, I have come to the
conclusion that America is in sympathy
with the Boers. The English press
has a great habit of suppressing news
that they regard as unfavorable to
England, and this false report of the
public sentiment of America is only
another instance of it. The sympathy
of Ireland is wholly with the Boers in
their present struggle for liberty, aud
it warms our hearts to know that this
little people is so bravely aud gal
lantly struggling for its rights.”
No one would ever have predicted
from the parentage and surroundings
oi Miss Gonne iu early life that she
would fill such a place iu the world
as she does, or even that her views
could possibly be what they are. Her
father was an Irish colonel in the
British army, classed as an Orange
man, aristocratic and conservative.
Her people belonged to the viceregal
circle, and from the time of her enter
ing society she was reigning belle at
the Dublin court.

The Newest in Millinery.
Incongruity in millinery has long
ceased to cause surprise and nothing
that the spring season developes may
be expected to excite any special as
tonishment, no matter what the mix
tures, for certainly fur aud tulle are
as extreme as any two mixtures can
be. Already there are toques made of
chiffon, stripped with fancy satin
straw braids iu different colors, and
flowers are fast usurping the place of
made up feathers, A largo toque of
snow white tulle trimmed with eider
weiss blossoms and a largo bow aud
baud of black pauue at one side, is one
of the novelties. Gardenias are one
of the favorite flowers of the moment
with the always favored violets. The
latest hats, which, however, are not
really the spring models, have rather
a high small round crown encircled
with cords or tucks, aud perhaps cov
ered with a net work, hand made.
Flattings of tulle on which chenille is
sewn like a cord are one of the popu
lar hat trimmings.
The Muff of the Day.
Tails by the half dozen dangle from
the ends of your collarette, boa or
other variety of neck furs. You see
them iu profusion and wonder where
iu the world they all come from. But
in the matter of muffs Madame La
Mode has set her seal with the abso
lute authority of au autocrat. The
muff is sure to he large, capacious and
comfortable. At oue eud it sustains
a fine bushy tail. This is seen in its
glory in silver lynx, silver bear or any
of the fine fox furs. There must only
be oue big tail.
New Dress Materials.
Mousselines part silk and part cot
ton are an interesting feature of the
new dress materials, as they are espe
cially recommended for wear at the
seashore. They are entirely without
dressing, and their special beauty is
said not to be affected at all by the
sea air. This in itself is enough to
commend them to every woman s
judgment, but they have so many
charms of coloring aud design that
the practical side is of minor impor
tance in comparison.
Feather Fans Again.
Large feather fans are once again be
ing worn, though the smaller ones
predominate.
For Spring Millinery.
A basic fact of importance in the
millinery Hue is the probability, al
most amounting to certainty, that the
new hats will bo higher in price than
ever, owing to the increased cost of
everything employed iu their making.
That flowers are to prevail iu hat
trimming seems assured. Some Paris
models are made wholly of the smaller
blossoms. A Spanish turban, for in
stance, is all of violets, with the
stems drawn over the edges to form a
facing. The crown is of violet leaves
with a drapery of lace around it. The
brim is wide iu front and narrow at
the back.
Ostrich plumes are to be used iu
combination with flowers of the larger
varieties. A toque of white tulle,
with crown of creamy Irish lace, has
lace of the same design twined in the
brim, which is caught back at the left
front by a knot of dahlia purple panne
velvet, held by a rhinestone orna
ment. From under this knot a single
white ostrich plume sweeps over the
left side of the crown to the back.
SAILOB FOB SPRING WEAK.
Under the brim, at the right, near the
back, is a cluster of crushed velvet
roses in dahlia shades. Sailor bats
will be more the rage than ever.

A gentleman who lives at Greenock,

Scotch terrier, which he tied up in
his office to prevent him from straying.
He was absent from his office for a
short time, and on his return he found
the terrier gone. The youngster from
the hills, liking freedom better than
being chained to a stool, had quietly
gnawed the string through and bolted.
But Snider, a bulldog, was also ab

surprise, for he was never known to

Where the "Stcasly I’ork” Went To.
This amusing tale was recently told
to his class by Prof. Comstock of Cor
nell, In speaking of the trials of Scien
tists. A professor of invertebrate zool
ogy in a sister university wanted to
get some trichlnous pork for experi
ment. The learned scientist went to
his butcher and asked him if he ever
got any measly pork. ‘‘Sometimes,’’
the butcher cautiously answered, “but
I always throw It away.” ‘■Well,” said
the professor, “the next time you have
any I wish you'd send me up some,"
meaning, of course, to his laboratory.
The butcher, although somewhat taken
aback, said that he would. Threa
weeks pased, when the professor, wow.
ing Impatient, again visited the store,
"Haven’t you found any measly pork
yet?” "Why, yes,” said the butcher.
"I sent up two pounds a week ago.” A
Blckly grin broke over the professor's
face. "Where did you send It?" "Why,
