Hospitality in Congoland Carried to
Extremes—Men in That Country
Are the Homemakers.
A stranger going through Congoland
is at liberty to stop at any hut and
spend the night or remain as long as
he feels inclined. This is expected, and
no conversation is even required to ne
gotiate the arrangements.
But if the stranger is tired, he is
“out of luck,” because hospitality in
Congoland is expressed in a strange
fashion. To give their guests a real
welcome the host and hostess gather
all of their neighbors and friends
around their home and plan for the
evening’s entertainment. They dance
for him, and are so anxious to give him
a pleasant visit that they keep the
dance up all night. He is expected to
appreciate it and, naturally, should not
show any signs of fatigue.
After a sleepless night he is sur
prised to find his hostess out in the
fields, bright and early, with her
cigar in her mouth —because in Congo
land only the women smoke; the men
prefer to take snuff. They consider
smoking effeminate.
The women not only do all the
heavy work in the fields, but sell the
produce as well. The men take over
the domestic duties. It is no strange
sight to see the man of the house en
gaged In doing the family washing, and
then hanging the clothes out to dry on
the branches of the trees around his
home.
After he has his “Monday’s work”
out of the way lie takes his sewing
basket and sits down in the shade and
does the family mending, and does it
well.
Great Authors Write Badly.
All great authors write badly. That
is well known. At least the pedants
say so. Great writers are impetuous.
The vigor of their vocabulary, the in
tensity of their style, the daring of
their phrases discoucert the pedants.
To the pundits good writing apparently
means writing according to rules. But
born writers make their own rules, or
rather make none. They change their
manner at every moment as inspiration
dictates; sometimes they are harmoni
ous, sometimes rugged, sometimes in
dolent and sometimes* spirited. So,
according to the common notion, they
cannot write well. —Anatole France.
A Musical Discovery.
A large quantity of rusty piano
wire, says a news item, has been found
in a valuable milk cow at Boston Lin
colnshire. There is hope that the “Tune
the Cow Died of” may now be post*
tively identified. —Punch, London.

Windmills Tell News In Holland.
Births, marriages and deaths in cer
tain parts of Holland are announced by
windmills. When a miller gets married
he stops his mill with the arms of the
wheel in a slanting position, and with
the sails unfurled. His friends and
guests frequently do likewise with
their mills in token of the ceremony.
To indicate a birth the wheel is stopped
in a slanting position, but at a more
acute angle than that of a marriage, and
with the two upper sails unfurled.
Should a miller die, the sails of the
mill are all unfurled and the wheel is
turned round until the arms form an
upright cross, in which position they
are left until after the funeral takes
place.
Not Boosting, but—
The San Francisco man was speak
ing. “I do not believe in all this
‘boost’ business,” he said. “There is
too much brag about it. Especially 1
do not believe in running down other
cities, other parts of the country. It
is making claims to excellence that do
not need to be made, and failure to
recognize which is the country’s loss,
not ours. We should not do it. It is
not modest and is likely to arouse
jealousy. But I will say this much for
San Francisco: Wherever you go from
here it is worse.”
She Objected to Skunks.
A school superintendent received
the following note from the mother 6f
one of his ]>uptU&
“In regard to Elliot missing So
Much school the first month he was 111
& the Dr. told me not to send him till
he got stronger & his Eyes did not
Hurt him so Much then he was trap
ping & going to School & the Teacher
Sent him Horae because he She said
Smeld of Skunk She said he would
Have to quit School or quit Trapping;.”
—Everybody’s.
Late Periodical.
“You’re next.”
“I’m in no hurry, doctor. Til wait.
This is a corking story I’m reading in
one of your magazines.”
“Who’s the author?”
“A chap named Mark Twain. He
H*as turning out some good stuff
twenty years ago.”—Birmingham Age-
Herald.
Drum's Place in Music.
The drum is a relic of ancient ages.
Music in its crudest form is fundimen
tally rhythm—later to develop into
harmony. The drum, lacking pitch,
lacking true musical expression, nev
ertheless essentially registers rhythm.
It represents music in its infancy as
devised by primitive peoples.

Coupling Pin Grave.
Marking tlie disappearance of the
coupling pin and link from use in rail
roading, a sentimental flagman, who
has spent over 37 years in active serv
ice, heaped a mound of cinders beside
the tracks in the freight yards of the
P. It. R, in Chicago, and placed there
on two coupling pins with a link as
mementos of a strenuous past.
