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. It was for this pur

RIGHT TO CRITICIZE
IRRITABLE MAN NOT THE BUT
TER-IN HE SEEMED.
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.

took the child in his own arms-he,

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.

. Telephone Talk No. 3.
Frequently when making a tele.
phone call the line is reported "busy."
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." This happens more frequently
on party lines, and it is to every one's
advantage in many respects to get di
rect line service. The manager will
explain more fully.
