Children of the Long Ago Were Satis
fied With Very Ordinary Counter
felts of Nature.
It Is Interesting to contrast the
plump, really truly looking American
doll of today with the crude, legless,
long armed wooden dollies with which
the little Egyptian .iris used to play.
These Egyptian dolls had wooden hair
and funny long arms that reached al
most to the knees and they never had
any feet at all, says the Boston Post.
For clothes all there ever was for
them to wear was just a strip of cot
ton cloth wound round and round
their bodies like a bandage.
Worse than that, the poor little Mo
hammedan children had to play with
headless dolls because the queer rul
ings of their religion would not allow
of any Imitation of the human figure.
Biblical children, Esther and Ruth,
probably played with wooden dolls
very much like the Egyptian dolls,
never a bit more beautiful.
Queen Elizabeth had a doll made of
tree bark. It was said to be 250
years old before It came Into her pos
session and slncu she died it has
never been located.
foils began to get better about thai
period and Mary Queen of Scots
owned a collection of dolls that would
move their arms and legs, they being
operated with springs, As early as
1413 came dolls with voices that
would squeak. Wigs came In 1820 and
walking dolls In 1825, but they were
all (pieer and unlovable compared to
the delightful "mamma"-"papa" talk
ing, walking, winky-eyed, real curly
haired dolls that the little American
girl can have for her very own chil
Tiger Can Always Be Relied On to
Furnish Sport for the Most Ad.
venturous Hunter.
The tiger is one variety of game
which is in no danger of extermina
tion. Tigers have been hunted for
centuries. They furnished sport to
the ancient Romans, both in the arena
where they faced the gladiators and
in the open field. Before that, they
were the game of great Egyptian mon
arch*. It Is doubtful whether primi
tive man was able to kill the tiger at
all. .
Today tigers are comparatively easy
game for the wealthy sportsmen who
hunt them with the great double-bar
reled English rifles carrying express
bullets. A great crowd of beaters us
ually assists at the sport, and drives
the tiger Into the open, though occa
sionally he is killed by watching at the
carcass of an animal he has killed. Oc
casionally a tiger kills a hunter, but
not often. In India and also in Korea
many unarmed and halt-naked natives
are killed by tigers ever year. In the
war betvven men and tigers it is hard
to say which is winning.
Tigers are found in almost all parts
of the continent of Asia, from the trop
ical jungles of India to the almost arc
tic heights of the mountains in Si
beria and northern China.
Beauty Contest in Africa.
The Africa and Orient Review, a
South African newspaper, has started
a beauty contest for dusky belles and
already 300 entries have been received
for the competition. The editor, Mr.
Mohamed All, thus describes the ne
gress face: "The eyes," he said,
"should have the African expression,
a soft, appealing look —an Intangible
dreaminess, never seen In European
eyes. The nose should he semi-aqui
line, slightly squat at the bridge, and
the lips somewhat thicker than those
of the average European, a charac
teristic which I think gives solidity
to the expression. The hair should,
of course, he curly." Photographs of
the competitors will be reproduced
each month, and the readers of the
journal will lie asked to vote for the
photograph they consider the most
beautiful, the lady receiving the great
est number of votes to be given $500.
The second prize is $250 and the third
a watch bracelet.
World's Longest Car Ferry.
The new railway ferry line, which
Is being planned to run between Eng
land and Sweden, will be the longest
in the world. A tremendous ferry
boat with engines furnishing about
12,000 horse-power is to travel daily
between the two countries, bearing
upon its huge decks freight trains 48
cars in length. Besides this there will
be provisions for taking travelers
from the first to the fourth class, to
gether with dining rooms, promenades
and Other agreeable features. The
journey requires 3.'1 hours. After ar
riving on land the freight train at
once proceeds upon the English or
Swedish tracks, as the case may be.
It Is obvious that ii tremendous sav
ing both In time and In labor can be
thus accomplished.
New Pictures by Radio.
"Very interesting and very impor
tant," Is the way Marconi recently ex
pressed himself regarding the trans
mission of photographs by radio. it
appears that several systems of this
kind are being worked out at present.
"I have not followed the experiments,
but I know It can be done," continued
Marconi. "Pictures were sent over
telegraph wires several years ago, and
what can tie done by wire can be done
by wireless. It will be of great In
terest to watch the progress made.
The two chief uses to which the dis
covery can be put are the quick trans
mission of photographs for newspaper
»nd police purposes." — Scientific

Boy Dan was lonesome, so lonesome
there were tears in his blue eyes and
a choke in his throat Bui he clutch
ed his lists manfully in his patched
pockets and he tried to pel up a real
stride for the ruts of the frozen read.
There was a heap o' courage tucked
away In Boy Dan's heart, and a heap
o' faith.
Besides, Boy Dan was running awny
from the home with no mother In It,
running away from the loneliness, to
find a real mother and a real dad nnd
a house with a tire;.la. > and a kitten
and a fishing rod and a baseball, nil
today, and a dog named .li;'. There
was reason enough to stride ahead,
(Mice Boy Dan had had a fa'her
with bandy hair and eyes li'..e bis. and
tanned face and nice kind hands and
a smile. Ami once Boy Dan had had a
little dark-skinned mother who loved
him to lines one minute and threw
saucepans at him the next, Once she
had'bit Boy Dan ho hard that the sear
stayed on his wrist. She hadn't lived
very long, and all the women Boy
Dan's father had had to cook for him
hadn't been nice or patient or neat.
So, after a while, one day, Boy Han's
lather had taken him to the home, and
he hadn't smiled when he left him.
Boy Dan knew he was very sorry.
That was years ago.
All that time, Boy Dan had been
planning to run away. Now ho was
doing It.
The day was lonesome — gray
clouds and a brown earth, and hud
dled piles of leaves. Only the little
cedar lane looked cheerful. An. right
In the same town, a little woman was
lonesome, too; Miss Sarah Graham,
who lived at the Cross Roads In the
brown cottage with the woodbine over
Ten years before Sarah had lost a
dear friend. They were to have been
married. But one evening the man
had been late in coming to, take her
for their walk through Cedar Lane,
and when lie had come Miss Sarah had
sent him away without meaning It at
all. just for the sake of hearing him
refuse to go
Then the marvel happened, as mar
vels will come to pass. B&y Dan and
Miss Sarah met right In front of the
little town square, where the rows of
cedars began to form Cedar Lane.
Miss Sarah stopped and put tier hand
mi tin- boy's shoulder.
"Son." said Miss Sarah. Then she
flushed ami wondered why she had
said it. "Where are you going?" she
"Nowhere," said Boy Dan, "Except,
to find a mother and—
"Where do you live?" asked Miss
Boy Dan told her. and he told her
he couldn't stand it any longer with
out mother.
Suddenly Miss Sarah spoke. "I'll
take you to my house, boy. I'll let the
honfe know. We'll have our dinner to
gether today."
"The boy chuckled. "Might '_ well
tell the home folks I've found a moth
er, I guess, for keeps-," he said. "I like
you. Guess I'll stay at your house all
the time." He hesitated. "Have you
got a daddy?"
"I live all alone," said Miss Sarah.
"Would you be lones*ome?"
"Without a dad I would," Boy Dan
told her. "Come on."
"Now we'll go find our daddy," said
Boy Dan with a sturdy purpose, drag
ging his new-found mother toward the
path of cedars and the little town
Chill though it was, there were men
lounging In the square, tanned men
and untanned men, dark men and
sandy men. And there was one man
who began to look hard hi the trudg
ing boy.
All at once he hurried over from the
bench and clutched Boy Dan's hand
and looked quickly at the little scarred
wrist. Then he knelt right down and
hugged Boy Dan close and whispered
Jerky things.
"M' boy, Dan. I couldn't git the
courage ter go ter the home and not
take yer along back with me.
The man looked at Miss Sarah, start
ed to speak, leaned closer, thrust out a
trembling hand,
"This Is my new mother, dad," said
Boy Dan firmly. "She's awful nice.
Guess she's- cold. She's shakin.' Glad
yer come 'long. We'll be startin' home
all of us, now we've got together* He
stopped. "Is there a fireplace and a
kitten?" he asked.
"Yes," said Miss Sarah faintly.
"May I come?" the man asked.
The last time Miss Sarah had heard
him speak he had said, "If you send
me away I shall not come back again."
And here he was.» Truly such ways
are marvels. How had It all come to
Why, there was a heap o' courage Ip
Boy Dan's heart, and a heap o' faith.
And It was marvel day in the morn
The fire burned bright ln Miss
Sarah's kitchen and in the fireplace,
and the man said the dinner was the
best-smelling one he'd ever waited for.
Boy Dan? There was going to be a
baseball and a Ashing rod and a dog
named Jlp. Dad had said so, and he'd
said something about a wedding, too.
The day wasn't lonesome any more,
either. The leaves had music In them
as they fluttered down to the welcom
ing earth, and the grayness had a
pearl light In it that is as a halo.
It was marvel day In the morning.
