On fete days and on Sun. days the roads abound with gayly costumed peasants carrying mandolas and singing the songs of Portugal, in spired by Camoens, whose poems have enriched the literature of Iberia. In art and architecture the names Carlos Rels, Santos Braga, Texeira Lopez, Colombano, Adelide Lrma, Malho, Salgade, and Fernandes stand out. The cathedrals, veritable monu ments to the architectural genius of succeeding generations, vie with the noblest examples of ecclesiastical edlflces in Europe.

The Solomon islands are famous as one of the last strongholds of head hunting and cannibalism. Some of the natives have been converted to a civilizsed respect for human life, but the native taste of the Solomon island er still approves a ceremonial feast once in a while, with several members of a hostile tribe tastily cooked and served. Head-hunting has for centuries been a part of the islander's religion and is pursued with great seal and a kind of ecstatle enjoyment to all except the victims. Head-hunters from one tribe set out for a hunt to the lands ao another tribe. They swoop down on a village, seise as many victims aq posslble and escape. The trophies of the chase are Impeled on posts as ev deuce of the hunters' prowess, while the fast which follows consists main ly of the victims. If the attacked tribe knows of the plan beforehand it will retire to its tree houses, where It is safe for a while. These boes are buillt fifty or sixty feet from the ground in the branches of giant traes. ladders hang from them and up these the agile no tres climb and then pull up the lad der. Usally a hunt is now Instituted only for one or two gaerfles ad skells as deeeeatioas in the houses am les fa*lionable than they once were 'lh is a avorable sign, but the real Solomon islander is far from tame anad it apt to relapse any time into the ways of his fathers.
