U IDEA IS TO DECEIVE SPIRIT t] Reason for Queer Language Employed d by Malayans When Gathering n Camphor, c In Johore, on the Malay peninsula, t1 there is employed one of the strangest b languages in the world, used for 1, a most curious purpose. This tongue r, is called Pantang Kapor, or "camphor a language," and is a medium employed Ic by natives and others engaged in gathering the product of the Malayan 4 camphor tree, but only when they are y at work. b It is a superstition of these natives u that should they use the language of I the district, the Malay or aborigintul t Jakun, they would be unable to obtain q their camphor. The Malay natives firmly believe that each species of tree has a spirit a or guardian angel that presides over a its affairs, this spirit being known by the name of Bisan. This divinity's b resting place is near the trees. Then, too, the spirit of the camphor tree is Aheld to be extremely jealous of the a precious gum, so that it becomes nee beary to propitiate her, inasmuch as she" would, should she learn that hunters were in, quest of it, endeavor to interpose obstacles to their mis- e sion Accordingly the natives speak in a tongue that the tree spirit may g Pot understand.

However, the Passengers Were Ready to Squelch the Man Who Objected to Baby's Crying, but He Got Off the Car. The patient-looking mother seemed unable to do anything with the child. It hollered and yelled and carried on worse than a fan after a three-base hit by a member of the home team at the opening game. Other passengers on the car fidget ed In their seats and looked greatly distressed, but said nothing, for the mother was apparently doing all she could to restore quiet. The heavy thinned man right across the aisle from the woman seemed to be getting more and more annoyed by the racket-even more so than the rest of the people. After a time he was unable to restrain himself any' longer. "It seems to me," says he, turning to the woman, "that It's about time you were doing something to stop that. baby's crying. I've sat here and put up with it just as long as I could, but I think it's up to you to see that there's a let up in It now pretty quick." The patient mother cuddled the wailing youngster to her a trifle closer and gave the irritable male passenger: a hurt look, but ventured no retort. There was no cessation in the noise, but nearly everybody else in the car: was in full sympathy with the woman: now. Several able-bodied men turned' around and glared at the square c hinned passenger who dared to speak' his mind. The latter, however, continued to: express himself. "When a kid hollers: like that," he opined, "there's some good reason for it. Children don't yell 'emselves hoarser because they've' heard that their lungs need the exer-L else. If it hasn't been getting the: right sort of food and feels crabbed and mean on that account, I hope you. switch to some other kind of dope,, that's all." It is not improbable that two or three of the more muscular passengers would have spoken severely to the. grouchy male complainant after the, last outburst if he hadn't risen just then to get off the car. As he started toward the rear platform, the patient looking little woman got up and fol lowed him. When they had both. reached the street, the man turned, took the child in his own arms-he, still loohlng crabbed and it still re citin; the lyrics to a war dance-aid the trio went ou* up street. -Tile man was the chilIds father, and lie had a perfect right to say what ever he wanted to about tlhe mannnr of its bringing up.-Cleveland Plain: Dealer.

F t- a, w eth rgr CARES FORGOTTEN IN SLEEP When Beneficent Nature Allows Un fortunate Humanity a Brief Respite. I saw once how like sleep was to life in the deep waters. A man who to my waking eyes looked cold and starved and ragged sat upon one of the benches on the embankment. He was sleeping, and I knew from his face that then at least he did not count himself miserable. But presently a policeman came and shook the sleeper into waking life. Then all the violence of the world seemed to be let loose upon this wreck of a man. He shook and blinked his eyes and breathed with heavy spasms. It was just as when a fish is caught out of the depth of the sea and suddenly cast into the basket. I have seen mackered shake and gasp like this poor man suddenly caught up out of the native depths of sleep. Or If you think that a fish thus dying is only an amusing and not a painful sight, then think of what it might be if some giant of fable could catch us up out of our native air into the space between the stars. Would we not willingly sink back again into the depth ofair? So it is when the loud world lets us glide down Into sleep.-London Outlook. 5 or 6 doses of "666" will cure any case of Chills and Fever.

Do not understand this as a refusal to give you conn ection, but the line call ed is really in use. It is much easier for the operator to give you connection, which requires only a simple motion ' of the arm and hand, than for her to answer "line pusy."
