Sept. 6.—The little tan is Antero, philosopher. Bo des being a philosopher, he Is an mrrote, chief of the little band f Philippine head-hunters import I from the islands expressly for c edification of visitors to the aska Yukon fair.

Yet It and more than this Antero has iruat many well defined Ideas MCTHERI/* PROBLEN.S Stuffed peaches are popular with all peach lovers. Pare the peaches carefully, halve them and remove stones. Chop fine an equal quan tity of almonds and English wal nuts. Fill the openings from which the stones weer taken with the chopped nuts. Fasten the halves together with tiny skewers or wooden toothpicks, sprinkle four or five tablespoons sugar over them, and set in a saucepan with just enough water to keep from burning. Steam 10 minutes, then set away to cool. Chill thoroughly and serve cold with sugar and cream. Hiccoughs in babies, while not serious, are rather uncomfortable and distressing. They are caused by a spasmodic contraction of the diaphragm. A very simple means of relief is to place upon the tongue a few grains of granulated sugar, which, as they dissolve, pass slowly down the throat. This or a little hot water given in a dropper very slowly will cause a cessation of these paroxysms. Long, long ago there lived a naughty little hoy who said swear words. His mamma tried to teach him to be good, but he would not mind her. At last she asked the fairies to help het. The fairy queen told the naughty boy that if he ever said wicked words again the fairies would pun ish him severely. But If he remem bered to speak gently they would reward him. For a time ho remembered to be polite to the fairy queen and his parents, and as he said each nice word a pretty pearl dropped out of his mouth. But pretty soon a ho forgot to be nice, and said a swear word before he knew it; when out of his mouth jumped a plnch-bug that jumped up and pinched his tongue hard. After that he soon learned to mind and say just the nice words. In fact ho was so good that all the fairies learned to love him, and they never had to punish him again by having pinch-hug!-, jump up and pinch his tongue. of hla own about Americans. First of all, after many weeks of observation Antero thinks we wear entirely too many clothes. As his photograph suggests. Antero Is a proponent of the simple In cos tume. To him the American looks like a walklug clothing store. "You dresß very pretty, hut too much." he says, in broken Kngltsh, for while Antero was educated part way In American schools an Igor rote maid proposed to him by stealing his hat—aa is the custom DRESSY WOMEN WILL CARRY IS LBS. OF CLOTHES, NOT S Just sit down and figure up how much a new frock like this will cost you. Is it any wonder the mer chant and the dressmaker are look ing so contented? And it's all true. The order of the coming fall styles is that we carry lf> pounds of clothes instead of five. The pannier was the first step, and now we have beside the pannier the wide aud full pleated skirt, tucked coats on which even the sleeves are laid in deep folds in order to use up material, and gir dles that are extravagantly full—ail of which take.-; yards and yards of fabric. And petticoats! If we wear only one. it must have at least ten full ruffles on It. I!ut to be really fash ionable we ought to wtar at least in Hontoc land —and he reverted to the wild. "You Americana always run about like ants," continues the Igorrot. "Always you look here and there, so that 1 laugh and laugh. Why do you not sit down by a tree-and remain paclflco for a time? You will tire, and if you tire the heat will kill you. '1 like my clothing, for I like much the buenos aires. Always I am well. I and my people, because we let the sun and air get at our bodies, while you are always get ting sick, because you are afraid to let the sun and air kifs your white skins. The dresses of one of your women would clothe all the woman in Hontoc, and T could give my babies a bath in one of your wom en's hats. "Yet the Americans, even with all tlioir foolish clothes, are the greatest people In the world," An tero says; then he adds, "my peo ple need you."

The waist is to be smaller, and hips and bust larger, which means new fashions in corsets, and that the figure is quite likely to be nat ural once more. Hut, "they say," these short, wide skirts are easy to walk in, and that, as a consequence, women will be more graceful than they could ever be in the narrow skirts of the past season.

If no baby In two rice crops, then they not married. It Is better so. "We need children in my coun try to help us grow rice, but two or three children enough. More children spoil women for Work In the afong, and besides our island too small. Too many children would crowd us out, and not leave enough to eat."
