Travelers visiting Samoa are puz zled at first by the fact that many boys bear feminine names, while girls as frequently have masculine names. The visitor learns after awhile, how ever, that this confusing use of names instead of being due to ignorance is in reality the result of a native cus tom which is highly poetic. Thus if a girl Is born soon after the death of a brother the latter's name is given to her in the belief that bis spirit and all his good qualities have been transferred to her. On the Other hand, if a hoy is born after the death of a sister he takes the latter's name and, as the Samoans believe, •11 her lovable traits become his. I**t—Grey horse, branded C7 on right stifle.

The securing of the pelt of a black fox is of such interest among trap pers and buyers of fur that the event is widely heralded throughout the trade, but it is rare indeed that one of tlie valuable animals is seen alive in captivity, yet a Farmington man has the distinction of havitfg a live black fox in his possession. The ani mai was captured by Stanley Savage of Avon, who has a line of traps set in the vicinity of Mount Blue. The animal was not injured materially by the steel trap in which he was caught j and Savage, after a lively tussle, sue ceeded in putting a collar around the fox's neck and attached a strong chain to It. He then took the animal to his home, where he has him con fined in a firmly built cage.— Kenne bec Journal. Advertise in the Opitmlst. It pays. j Virtues of Profanity.
