Concerning the experience one un dergoes while traveling in a Lapland sledge a writer says: "The Laplander's pulka is a very curious conveyance; it is a canoe-shaped wooden sledge and very difficult to manipulate. Be fore a Lapp can take a drive the rein deer has to be caught. Harnessing is a strenuous performance, as the crea ture is usually wild with fright and plunges and kicks considerably. His harness consists of a belt made of the skin of some former brother or friend, one rein., which is Lastened around his nose, and the pulka is attached and drawn by -means of a single -trace. They evidently find it a very difcult task to drive; in fact, the reindeer al* ways appears to go where, when and how he pleases. The Lpp hangs on to the poor, unfortunate.animal's neck while his passenger scrambles in. This. is gpnerally a somewhat hasty per formance, and iusually only half pet formed when, with a wild whoop, the little Lapp hurlts hiIself oq to the front of the sledge, the reindeer makes a wild plunge and the mad rush be "In and out the poor, wild creature dashes, as if to free himself from the hindering incumbrance which conting ally chafes him, first o$ one side and then on the other. If driver and past aenger are skillful.ln.the art of tobog,. ning, apid manage to remain in the pulka, the reindeer soon deoides tha. his burden is not to be got rid of, an4 he .spttis-.wn into a more or less steady stride, and then the sensatio.. is delightful and like nothing else o0 earth. They are very fleet animal* and appear to fly; their eet, being somewhat after the pattern of the camel, splay out on the snow and thus they are enalled to travel at ,great speed and tremendous distances with out fatigue. "Owing to its shape, the pulka is very liable to upset, even with expert driving, and when the accident occurs the driver has" to be very careful not to let the one rein go, or else woe be tide him. Away goes the reindeer and sledge and nothing will stop him till he reaches= his herd, while, should the unfortunate driver find himself far ftrm his companions, there is nothing for him to de but face starvation and a frozen grave amid the snow. Acci dents like these are quite usual, but it has. not occurred to the Lapp to alter either the method of harnessing or driving or the shape of the sledge." Woman and. Color Schemes. At the linen counter: A pretty, pink , eheeked girl came up, greatly exzited at,the. thought of a new linen dress. An older person was with her. "There, dearie. This lavender would be so becoming to you, with your hair and complexion." "But it fades so quickly," lamented dearie. "And have white embroidered collar and cuffs," continued the friend, without noticing the interruption. "How .lnany yards, dearie?" And she ordered six yards of an ugly lavender which $yt far more suited to dearie's granm mother. They had no sooner disap peered than a flighty looking woman, well .past forty, -.appeared and went Itto raptures. over some sky ;pink. "Such a darling ahade! Junst matchy mycolor," ,T. the.Clerk;, "`Qn't you think this a.wfby becoming to me?" 'the clerk cheerfully ledil nd she ir' daered eight yards and walked offl looking very proud o'f herselLt "Isn't It : readfu't" asked, a sweet looking w.mlala ..aiting her change.
