THE TRIBES OF BOMBAY.
SiaKulnr Marriage Customs and Oth
er Peculiar Practices of
the People.
The first of a series of monographs
dealing with the ethnographical sur
rey of Bombay has been issued. The
survey is being carried out under the
direction of Mr. 11. E. Enthoven, the
superintendent of the provincial cen
sus, and, says the Bombay Gazette, it
is proposed to issue monographs giv
ing as full an account as possible of
the most important or most interest
ing tribes in the presidency. To make
the work of the survey as complete
and as accurate as may be, Mr. En
thoven invites the assistance of all
who may be able to supply informa
tion regarding the various castes in
to which the population is split up.
The educated members of castes will
no doubt avail themselves of the op
portunity to submit materials con
cerning the origin and customs of
their communities, They can also as
sist, as Mr. Enthoven asks them to,
l>y useful criticism of the various
monographs as they are published,
for it is intended to finally republish
the whole of the series in a single
volume. The survey will include an
thropornotrloal operations, and a be
ginning in this direction has been al
ready made in making physical meas
urements of Brahmans, Marathas,
Kunbis, Bhils and Mahars.
.1 otemism, which is still found in
certain tribes, and the survival of
particular marriage customs are
among the special matters in regard
to which it is hoped that much new
Information wilt be elicited as a re
sult of the present investigations.
The monograph which has just been
published is an account of the Ahir
tribe, the materials for which hare
been collected and compiled by Mr.
1> II. Bhandarkar from the Bombay
Gazette and other sources. The
Ahirs number 104.894, and are espe
cially numerous in Khandesh, Nasik.
Outeh and Kathiawar, by far the
largest numbers being found in the
two last named parts of the presi
dency. The Ahirs of Cutch and Ka
thiawar, however, differ considerably
from those of the Deccan districts,
no doubt as the result of local influ
ences. There have been various the
ories as to the origin of the tribe,
but the conclusion now reached is
that they were at first a non-Hindoo
and a non-Aryan tribe of shepherds
or herdsmen, leading a nomadic life.
They were subsequently incorporat
ed into the Goala caste, an experi
ence that occurred to ittnny other
foreign or aboriginal pastoral tribes.
It, is considered probable that they
entered India from Afghanistan and
* migrated from the Punjaub eastward
and southward. They appear to have
held sway over Khandesh, Nasik, Ka
thiawar, Palaitpur and Culch. and the
greater part of Goojerat was in their
possession when the Kathis appeared
there in the eighth' century. In
Khandesh the Ahirs form so great a
proportion of the population that
the Khandesh dialect of Marathi is
called Ahirani, and is spoken by
half the people, in Cutch and Kathi
awar they have also preserved their
own dialect.
As to the customs of the tribe in
the latter parte of the eountry, the
widow of an Aliir marries her late
husband’s younger brother. In the
Deccan the widow is generally mar
ried in the same way, or to her
cousin by her mother-in-law or aunt
in-law, though if she be an adult she
can marry any man she likes. Tote
mistic sects exist among these peo
ple. showing their non-Aryan origin,
while the theory of their foreign ori
gin is strengthened by the fact that
the people of one of ilieir endoga
inous sections are called Romabans.
This is held to point to a foreign
horde from Romaic, identified by San
skrit scholars with Alexandria and
other places outside India where as
tronomy was studied. The mono
graph of the Ahirs is an admirable
beginning of the series to be pub
lished, and indicates the valuable re
sults which will accrue from the sur
vey now being carried out.
Wlijr Ice In Slippery.
At a recent meeting of the Philo
sophical society at Cambridge, Eng
land, S. Skinner contributed a paper
on the slipperiness of ice. This has
been attributed tcf the presence of a
layer of lubricating water under the
body pressing on the ice. The water
Is produced by the lowering of the
freezing point where the pressure is
experienced. On this view the object
glides on a liquid layer, and conse
quently viscous friction in water
takes the place of the rubbing fric
tion between the solids. Joly has
shown by calculation that the weight
of a man concentrated on the blade
of a skate is sufficient to lower the
freezing point very considerably, and
Reynolds, arguing from the difficulty
of slipping on very cold ice, comes to
the same conclusion. In the present
paper it is pointed out that sliding
on a liquid layer is a condition under
which cavitation will occur in the
liquid, and that this will aid the slip
ping —Nature.

Without fear of contradiction we

Every lord supplied to our customers
is branded with the state stamp, and
no goods that are not up to the govern

stores.
Our stock of British dukes is the
finest in the world, and at the Missouri
exposition we were awarded the gold
medal for this rare and beautiful type
of goods.
A choice collection of belted earls is
always on view in our showrooms.
We highly recommend our “B. B. B.,”

be had in three styles—English, Irish
or Scotch. We do a large business in
these goods with people who like a good
article, but cannot afford^ the more
costly barnds. As. however, the supply
is limited, customers are advised to
purchase early.
We have a very cheap line in French

ONE OF LINCOLN’S BEST,
Humorous Anecdote Tlint Was a Fa
vorite with the War
I*reni«leiit.
The world is indebted, for the pres
ervation of this anecdote to the late
Senator Voorhees, of Indiana, who re
lated it in Washington not long before
his death, says the Philadelphia Led
ger. As Voorhees told it, Lincoln had
in court a case in which he felt no great
confidence, and, agreeably to a time
honored rule among lawyers (“if you
have a poor case abuse the opposing
counsel”), touched lightly on its
merits, but paid bis respects toliis op
ponent. who happened to be a young
lawyer, not without ability, but very
glib, very bumptious, and a little “too
previous” generally to make a favor
able impression on the jury. The
situation “indicated” (as the doctors
say) the professional rule too strongly
for Lincoln to resist its application.
But he tempered the wind before
shearing the lamb. After compliment
ing the young man on his remarkable
flow of language, as exhibited in*the
speech which he had just delivered to
the jury, and paying a warm tribute to
his good qualities and those of both
his parents, Lincoln said:
"But my young friend’s gift of
words has one serious drawback,
which you, gentlemen, have wit
nessed in this ease. It interrupts
the action of his mind. His thinking
machine and talking apparatus don’t
swim to jibe. When bis tongue works,
bis brain quits, lie reminds me of a
little steaprboat that used to run on
the Sangamon river. It had a three
foot boiler and a five-foot whistle, and
every time it whistled it had to stop.”

fronts and a re
juvenated appearances. But after the
first surprise of it, the discovery was
made that all their beauty, like that
of the “painted lady of Doubfe
Dykes,” was false. Citizens are now
declaring that the new levee must go.
The whole problem in a city like
Chicago is serious. The levee cannot
be eradicated by law. The use of too
stringent measures, say the author
ities, is like attempting to extinguish
burning oil with water: the evil only
spreads into new districts. When the
elder Harrison was mayor he swept
nil illegitimate resorts into one gen
eral neighborhood. He did not at
tempt to destroy them wholly.
Gradually, because the street ear
patrons demanded it, State and Clark
streets were purged, at least so far
as outward appearances went. The
levee, thus further restricted, moved
south and east and between streets.
Proprietors of showy saloons who
thrive best near evil resorts and who
cannot afford to leave the thorough
fares have now tried Wabash avenue,
some of them spending* $20,00Q or $30,
000 in repairing old buildings. But the
vigilance committee of citizens is
after them, and Chicago awaits their
next move.

hope, only in part. With the proper
restrictions on 1he actions of the red
men, however, this exhibition will be
well worth seeing. Henry E. Weaver,
a Chicagoan, has saved a section of
the old fort and this will be set up asl
near the spot it originally occupied as
possible. The Indians will live on the
lake front hi their tepees and enter
into barter and trade at the fort, as
leir grandfathers did of old. !«<*•

Auction Snle of Relic*.
The proposal that the three Colum
bian caravels in Jackson park be dis
>oeed of to tke
iighest bidder
has raised a
storm of protest
in Chicago, but
so far as we know
no poet has yet
risen to immor
talize himself
over the situa
tion. And the
chance to do a
poetical stunt of
a lasting kind
over these much
abused old Wood- “What! Tear Yon Sacred
Ensien Down? ’
en bides is very
good, especially at this time.
These replicas of Columbus’ three
famous ships, the Santa Maria, Nina
and Pinta, are really very picturesque
and greatly enhance the interest and
attractiveness of the park. It is to be
hoped that the park commissioners
will repair them, leave them where
they are, and take more care of them
in future. Of the interesting features
of the exposition which survived the
disastrous tire that followed the great
fair, those that remain in the park are
all too few. The Fine Arts building
used by the Field Columbian museum,
the German building used as a refrac
tory. the convent of La Kabida used
. _.-i-—si-.. i;e_
tie Japanese pagodas on the island
and the three caravels rotting in the
lagoon are about the only features
that remain; yet they are all pictur
esque in spite of many signs of decay
and without them the park would re
semble any other ordinary reserve of
lawns, shubbery and ponds. The Fer
ris wheel remains in Chicago, but it
stands inactive in a North sid® beer
garden, and is likely at any time to be
torn to pieces for the iron and steel
that is in it.
Not a few of the world's fair build
ings were purchased by individuals
and moved- out of the city. For exam
ple, J. J. Mitchell purchased tfie Ceylon
building, moved it to Lake Geneva and
made himself a very odd, beautiful and
costly summer home of it. The Nor
way building may be seen on C. K. G.
Billings’ Lake Geneva estate. Seine
one else purchased the Idaho building,
but, although it may be seen at the
Wisconsin resort, the visitor would
have to wade in mud and water to his
knees to get to it, for it stands in a
slough, where it is abandoned by all
save bats and other eerie creatures.
But even there it will remain a unique
and picturesque attraction, for its
solid cedar beams will not soon rot.
A New Dignity.
The few- really sultry days that have
made their presence felt thus far this
_________ season have
served to show
that Chicago is by
no means all hus
tle arid no dignity.
Several brokers

compelled to waste many valuable
minutes in running: back to their offi

ing to remove bis coat would lose his
job if he did not heed first warning.
Other firms are more lenient and de

come in contact with the public need

members of one firm, themselves ad

clare that they think men look well

encourage this negligee in summer,
because they are then assurd that their
employes are not trying to cheat the

The agitation of the burning eoa.t
question in Chicago has brought out
the fact that employers do noT care to
have beards raised at their expense.
They drive away trade and it has been
declared that employes must shave at
least every other day. One employer
says that all beards raised in his of
fices should be tagged in some mariner
during their first stages so that call
ers will understand what is iaknded.
PASSING OF THE ALLIGATOR.
I*« Former Abandonee in Florida Df
scribed by Oine Wtaio H«i»
Hunted It.
“In July, 1879, near my home in Tolls
county, Fla.,” said Cyrus Balcl'ier, ac
cording to the New York Sun, “I was
one of a party of nine men who joined
in an alligator hunt on what was
know n as the Hooker Prairie, but in
reality was a chain of bayoug. Within
an area of less than one mile around
we dispatched 224 alligators. They
ranged in size from three feet to 12,
the average length being seven feet.
“I came north 20 years ago and did
not go back to Florida until last win
ter, when I visited my old home. When
I expressed a wish to go out and tag
a few alligators folks looked at me in
surprise, and told me there hadn’t been
an alligator on Hooker Prairie in ten
years, and people around there had
almost forgotten what an alligator
looked like.
“Hunting the reptiles for the leather
market had caused them to become ex
tinct where they had once been almost
as plentiful as the flies that covered
them as they basked in the sun. And
with the departure of the alligators,
they told me, the flics had also almost
entirely disappeared.
“I remember once, in those good old
alligator days, a party of us were out
deer hunting. Our dogs started a deer
and took it to the river, into which it
plunged, to swim across.
“It never got across, though. It was
captured by a big alligator and lugged
back to the river bank. When we fol
lowed the dogs to the spot we found
that the alligator had whipped them
off and had the deer half devoured. We
lost the deer, but got the alligator.
“Once another man and myself pulled
a ten-foot alligator from a burrow in
the bank by running a long-handled
boat iiook into the hole, which the al
ligator seized in its jaws and held on
to. This was the same alligator that
had come out of the bayou the day
before where an old darky named
Gabe Doan had fallen asleep while
fishing, and bitten the old chap’s leg
off at the knee.
“I would no doubt have had the rest
of old Gabe, too, if two other fisher
men hadn’t heard his yells and hast
ened to the spot. When they ap
proached, the alligator slid into the wa
ter, taking Gabe’s leg along with it.
The men carried the darky home and
he got well, and 1 saw him stumping
around on the wooden leg that took
the place of the one the alligator bit
off.
“On'one alligatoring trip along Hook
er Prairie I myself hilled 16 big alliga
tors and destroyed more than two bar
rels of alligator eggs.”
PHOTOGRAPHING THE DEAF.

If deaf people had the same dread of
photographers that photographers
have of them, they w’ould not often
have their pictures taken. The artist
dislikes them, not because of their in
firmity, but because they take poor
pictures, says the New York Times.
“Why do they show up so badly in
a photograph?” asked the visitor in
whose presence such a complaint had
just been made.
“I don’t know why,” was the reply,
‘‘but they do. J udging by their expres
sion at that time they must be expect

moment with a Eourtb-of-July racket,
and they are all on edge to hear it.
Their eyes never look Tike other peo
ple’s eyes, nor their noses like other
people’s noses, nor their mouths like
other people’s mouths. I suppose that
is partly due to the difficulty in making
them understand instructions. I may
pose a deaf man before the camera
ever so artistically, but before I get
five feet away he is drooping over again
in. the most dejected attitude.

him.
“He opens his mouth wide and en
circles his ear with his palm.
“‘What’s that?’ he says.
“I go back and jerk him into shape.
We repeat that performance half a
dozen times. By the time the poor fel

ments of a photographic subject,‘he is
in a state of nervous collapse that does
not add to his physicarattractiveness.'
But after all that preparatory t*ssle‘
we do not like to postpone the great
event, so we take a picture. Naturally,
it is not a .good one. The man is not
satisfied; neither am I, but it is not1'
much use to repeat the performance,
for he is-not likely to get a better one.
“Altogether, there is a strained,
tense look on the pictured face of a
deaf person which not even the pencil
of the retoucher can soften, and if the
photographer’s art were to be judged
by that small portion of his work he
would soon suffer so in reputation that
he would have to shut up shop.”
