Laplander* Preferred the Snow and
the Open Air, and So Had a
Comfortable Night.
Sir Henry Lucy tells in the Corn
hill Magazine a good story that he
had from Nansen, the explorer. It
amusingly illustrates the hardy health
of the Laplanders.
Part of Nansen’s equipment for his
trip across Greenland consisted of two
sleeping-bags made of undressed
skins. On the first night of the jour
ney Nansen and his two Norwegian
companions got into one of the bags,
pulled the mouth tight across their
necks, and so slept in the snow with
only their heads out.
Before retiring to rest, Nansen saw
the three Laplanders he had engaged
for the expedition cozily tucked Into
the other sleeping-bag. When he
awoke in the morning, almost numb
with cold, he observed that the bag
In which he had tied up the Lapland
ers was empty, and that they were no
where in sight. He was afraid they
had de him, and scrambling
out of the bag he went in search of
them. He found the three men fast
asleep behind a hillock of snow that
they had scraped together as a pro
tection against the wind.
"Ah. master,” they said, when ask
ed to explain this extraordinary con
duct. “we couldn’t sleep in that thing.
It was too hot, so we got out and
have had a comfortable night here.”

No Strangers Allowed. ,
Frank H. Hitchcock, the postmaster
general of the I’nited States, takes the
deepest interest in even the smallest
details of the postal service. One eve
ning he was at the Union station in
Washington, when he decided to go
into one of the railway mail-service
cars to see how the mail matter was
being handled. Being a tall man and
very athletic, he easily swung himself
from the platform into the car, but he
did not find it an easy matter to stay
put. A burly postal clerk grabbed
him by the shoulders, propelled nim
toward the side door, and practi- |
cally ejected- him to the platform be
“What do you mean by that?” ask
ed Hitchcock indignantly.
“I mean to keep you out of this
car,” replied the clerk roughly. “That |
fellow Hitchcock has given us strict
orders to keep all strangers out of
these cars.” —Popular Magazine.
Newspapers and Literature.
All this over emphasis of the un
meaning surface is due to a confusion j
of newspaper and literary standards,
ends. aims. The word literary has come
to suggest an absence of red-blood;
spinners and knitters in the sun; the
35 cent magazine crowd; this is non
sensical. of course. In its elemental
meaning literature is at least as stern
a "jab as journalism, albeit the inten
tion and function of the latter is mere
ly to present things that happen, of
the former to volatilize such material
into hovering and potent meanings, to
strike the rock and raise a spirit that
is life.

Let His Friend Down Easy When
He Saw the Joke.
“Confound those storage people,”
muttered Tom Bryant, as he unlocked
the door of his apartment and ushered
his friend Wells into —an empty room.
He stared round him. “Well, of all the
gall!” he exclaimed. “Here’s that con
founded landlord of mine decorated
the walls in saffron when I went over
the matter with him a dozen times
and he swore by all the gods to do
them in red. And the storage men
were on their honor to have my fur
niture in today. I tell you, Billy, It
makes a fellow tired.”
They entered and sat down upon a
board which the painters had left
stretched out between two step-lad
ders. Tom lit his and began
puffing savagely.
The men were old acquaintances
whom fate had driven apart for many
years. Recently Tom Bryant had been
spending his vacation with Wells in
the Adirondacks, and the latter had
accompanied him back to his home, to
be his guest for a few days. Mrs.
Bryant, who had been visiting his
mother, was expected on the following
“I’m going round to the storage
men the first thing in the iporning,”
said Tom, “and I’m going to tell them
some of the things I won’t do to them
if they don’t have my goods here be
fore 11 o’clock.” He paused and be
gan wrinkling his brow. “Billy,” he
said, “if you’ll give me your word of
honor never to breathe a word of it
I’ll tell you of an extraordinary thing
that happened to me when I got back
frcin my honeymoon four years ago.

toe about it, but it was mighty serious
at the time, and this little episode re
minds me of it.”
“Word of honor,” said William
Wells. “Go ahead, Tom.”
The other struck a fresh match for
his pipe and cast the burned end into
a pail of half dry paint.
“We’d just got back from a blissful
three weeks’ honeymoon in the moun
tains,” he began, sending out clouds
4? smoke and leaning back against tne
ladder. “Previous to my marriage I
had rented a little apartment some
thing like this one in the West Fifties.
You used to know this town pretty
well, Billy ; I guess you remember that
section, where every house looks just
like its neighbor and every street for
blocks is exactly the same. Well, the
place was decorated for us and our
new furniture was moved in and we
were both thoroughly pleased. We
speculated how happy and cosy we
were going to be, and all the way
home in the train we talked about it
and indulged in housekeeping rhap
"When we reached our apartment
house the janitor met me at the door
with a telegram in his hand. It was
from the office, asking me to come
down immediately I returned in order
to explain something that had cropped
up during my absence —a matter of !
which I alone was cognizant. It
wouldn’t take more than a couple of
minutes to straighten out affairs, and
perhaps an hour’s absence in all. 1
didn't like it, but there was nothing
else to do; so, after escorting Mrs.
Bryant to the door and opening it fo?
her, and glancing to make sure that
all the furniture was there, I kissed
her and took the car down town.
“The matter proved more important
than I had anticipated. I called up
my wife, explained the matter, and re
mained a* the office until late in the
etening, unraveling the tangle, it was i
half past nine before I got home. I j
walked straight in, went up the three
flights of stairs and unlocked the |
apartment door.
“It was absolutely bare, Billy, as
bare as this one. The smell of fresh
paint was about the only thing there j
was In it. Not a stick of furniture, I
not a rug, not a cup or a saucer or a |
dish rag in the kitchen. And Eleanor |
was gone.
“Well. sir. I nearly went crazy. Of |
course you can guess what had hap
pened. But the solution did not oc
cur to me at all. There was the apart- i
ment, arranged Just as before, with
the kitchen leading out of the dining
room, and the bath-room with its
three-quarter length tub. and the gas >
bracket over the medicine chest, and !
my key which fitted the lock. I didn’t j
know where to turn. Eleanor’s folks
lived at Syracuse, and even if she had
got angry at my delay and gone home, |
she couldn't have taken the furniture

somewhere and I couldn't find a soul j
in the basement to ask about her.

through he apartment, and by morning

sense enough to call up the office to
say I couldn't get down, and when I
got the answer I found I could get
down after all. In fact I got down in
record time. Eleanor had been tele*
phoning all the evening before until
they closed up at eleven (tve were do
ing a rush business then), and that
morning she had camped on the door
step about six and waited till the day
watchman came on duty, and then she
had a fit of hysteria in his arms. And
the police had been notified and w ere
searching the hospitals and looking in
all the dark corners to see if I was
lying there sandbagged. When I got
down and Eleanor fainted in my arms
and then came to and had another
hysterical attack in the middle of the
office flo6r —well, it was no joke, I
tell you. And all because I had mis
taken the street and walked into the
corresponding house on the same
block in the street above it. I tell
you, Billy, my sticks and rugs looked
pretty good to me when I got back
with Mrs. Bryant about nine o’clock.
“But for the Lord’s sake don’t men
tion a word about it to her when you
meet. You’ll be surprised how she
has changed from the time when you
knew her four years ago. Do you re
member telling her she looked ■as
though she would never grow up, that
day you said good-bye to us at the
station? She has, though, and into a
fine woman. You see, we’ve had some
pretty heavy responsibilities, old man,
during these few years, what with oar
business nearly going out in the panic
and then shooting up like a rocket.
When we had to get out of Fifty
seventh street we took a regular tene
ment place up in the Bronx. But I knew
things would get better again, and it
wasn’t long before we were able to
get back into our old quarters again.
But we’d always coveted this apart
ment house —come to the window!
That’s where we used to live —number
4G5, across the street. And when
we took this place last month we felt
that we had begun to stretch our
selves at last.”
“W’here did you say you used to
live?” asked William W’ells.
“Number 465 —across the street,
Billy,” said the other yawning.
“Fifty-seventh street?”
“Sure! This is Fifty-seventh street.
“O, nothing,” answered his friend.
“Only they must have marked it
wrong on the corner lamps, because
they call it Fifty-eighth. Tom, you
thundering fool, you’re in the wrong
house again!”

In Brittany There Exists a Huge Black
Stone Image of a Woman That
Ik Very Old.
One of the most curious relics of
paganism remaining in a Christian
country is the gigantic black stone
figure of a woman which is to be seen
in a forest of the district of Morbi
han in Brittany.
It is known as the “black Venus,”
but probably dates far back of the
time when the Greeks and Romans
worshiped that goddess. Antiquaries
assert that this figure belongs to the
age of the serpent worshipers, one of
whose subterranean temples is in the
neighborhood. This would make the
figure far older than the Christian era.
The statue is that of a huge, un
couth woman, with a sullen, angry
countenance, her form envelof/ed in
a loose mantle. The superstitious
Bretons have always worshiped the
figure, asserting that it has power
over the weather and the crops. If
the idol is neglected they declare that
the grain dies on the ear, and if the
anger of the “black woman” over Mor
Twice the stone was cast into the
sea by pious folk, who hoped thereby
to put an end to this idolatry, and
twice the peasants dragged it back and
set it up in its old place.
Some two hundred years ago Count
Pierre de Lannon, on whose estate the
figure stood, in order to save the
statue from both friends and enemies,
dragged it by forty yoke of oxen to
his own chateau and set it up in the
courtyard. He cut an inscription on
the base of the pedestal, declaring the
figure to be a Venus carved by Cae
sar’s soldiers. —Harper’s Weekly.
