There is a popular belief in the ex j treme northwest that the north pole ; will be discovered by a musher. and not by any scientific polar expedition, says the Sunset Magazine. This belief is based on the conviction that a gold , stampede -will eventually be started toward north latitude 90 degrees, and i that the rnushers will rush in where ' arctic explorers have feared to tread. ; So completely unknown to fame is this ' newcomer in the race for the pole that ! to the majority of people the name sug j gests nothing but cereal breakfast food, j Gilbert Parker, the novelist, who | finds his most congenial theme in Freneh-Candian life, has made his read ers familiar with “Marche'-t’-en!” th-3 cry with which drivers of dog teams urge forward their panting animals. Frencli-Canadian trappers were among the earliest white men in the far north west, and American prospectors on the Yukon soon learned to goad their dogs on with the same cry, without, however, understanding the French, which, in their mouths, was rapidly corrupted to “Muchon!” to this day an Alaska dog driver's equivalent for “Gee up!” Dog drivers generally rush with the team and therefore from “Mush-on” has come the noun musher, used all over Alaska and the Yukon territory to des ignate a trailsman. The musher is gen erally prospector, stampeder and trails man ail rolled into one, and Alaska trails are such uncertain quantities that he has frequently to make his own prece dents over newly frozen sea and track less snow. The musher achieves most of his stampeding to new gold fields dur ing the arctic winter, for then the rigid sea becomes a highway and mighty rivers need no bridging. RAVAGES OF THE SOUVENIR What Was Once a Harmless Fad Has Become Almost a Univer sal Mania. The vogue of the illustrated souvenir postal card has assumed the dimensions of a literary peril. What was once a harmless fad confined to more or less ec centric visitors in out-of-the-way place# has become all but a universal mania, says the New York Post. The Boston post office reports handling 25,000 of these yellow imps in a single day. The so-called comic valentine once tainted the postman’s bag. Its influence, how ever, lasted but for a day, while the sou venir postal card ceaseth not day nor night to cry for a destroyer. From the point of view of growing popularity these postal cards but evi dence anew the danger with which modern mechanism is continually en compassing the other handicraft arts. The printed book has driven out illus trated missal. “The quarter-sawed oak” of Kalamazoo has displaced Chippen dale and Sheraton. And at last the illus trated postal, with cheap ready-made sentiment and chromo lithograph threatens the letter of friendship, travel and description. The residuary field of the epistolary aft was long supposed to be safe from the inroads of the printing press. Political intelligence such as fills Horace Walpole’s six stout vol ume# of private letters has for over a century been disseminated in the news papers. Scientific news has long since found similar media of publicity. But the intimate unbosoming of friend to friend at a distance has held at bayy all the devices of modern machinery until the advent of this substitute for a real letter. SPEAKING WITH EMPHASIS. Calisthenics Accompany the Words of Neapolitans When Dis cussing Weather. “Give a Neapolitan a pair of dumb bells and ask him if he thinks it is like ly to rain, and before his answer is finished he will have taken enough healthful exercise to last him all day." ! Once, says the London Clarion, a trav ■ eler sat with a friend in a cafe at I Naples. Near them were two Italians ' engaged in conversation. The younger | of the two seemed much excited. With his hands he made reaching and clinging motions, as if climbing. Tlieu he seemed to be groping for cherries in the air. a6 he reached right and left above his head. Next, without slacken ing his con versa! ion, he put the thumb and forefinger of his left hand together, and holding them befory his eyes, went through the careful movements of one threading a small needle, and all the time he talked. Suddenly his manner changed. He made overhand motions, as if throwing something. Then he apparently Imitated a swimmer, and immediately afterward described several circles with his left hand, giving the impression of a rapid ly revolving wheel. Finally he leaned forward, and with his right hand acted the part of a per son endeavoring to put a key into a key hole. The traveler w as overcome by curios ity. He turned to his friend, who un derstood Italian, and asked hint what the plot of the story was. “Oh, nothing.” replied the other. “They’re chatting about the weather."

Tlmea. 1 CAPTURING THE WILD DUCK Clever Scheme of the Chinese Is Suc cessful Among the Wary Water Fowl. __ A full-grown wild duck is one of the most wary of all wild creatures. A wa j ternfan may be working all day long ' with shovel and pickax, says the author | of “Bird Life and Lore." barely a stone - throw from a large flock of widgeon an : | wild ducks, and they will not notice bin-, ! for they know that he means them no | harm. But let a sportsman enter the j meadows and hide his gun e er so care ; fully, and make himself ever so sii.ai, ; if is ten to one that they will rise in a cloud when he is some four gunshots ! away from them, and take themselves off to a place of greater safety. There is one method of talcing wild ducks in considerable numbers, prac i tieed in China and in some other coun | tries; which is so amusing and 30 little ' known as to deserve notice. The natives take care that a large j number of big calabashes, or gourds. ' should always be left floating on the wa j ter frequented by the birds, til! they ' get to regard them as part and parcel ; of their . resorts. The duck-hunter I chooses his time, and, putting one of the I calabashes, with holes cut for his I mouth and eyes, upon his head, he ! wades through the lake, taking care to keep the whole of his body well be neath the surface. He cautiously ap proaches the unsuspecting wild fowl, and, catching c>«e of them by the leg, pulls him, with a sudden jerk, beneath the water, causing hardly more commo tion of the surface than the duck itself often makes when it dives, or plashes, or plunges for its food. He wrings its neck under the water and fastens it to his belt. Then he deals with another and another in the same fashion, till he makes his retreat, equally unnoticed, with a whole girdleful of captured wild ducks round his waist. SOFT-EYED MEN OF PACIFIC Loochoo Islanders Who Possess Most Winning and Remark able Optics, A woman traveler who lately visited the Loochoo islands, in the Pacific, de scribes her first impressions in the North China Herald. The first thing that struck her on landing was the fact that the coolies who tumbled lazily aboard her ship were “very much addict ed to the use of hats, and very little to the use of any other clothing.” She continues: “I can best describe the hats by an exclamation of one of our party, ‘What beautiful waste paper baskets they'd make!’ These hats were fastened on with loops of thick, brown, hairy palm rope, through which were passed cotton strings tied under the chin. Every man’s face was ornament ed with a thin, brownish black beard and mustache, and it was often hard to tell where the beard left off and the hairy rope began. Wisps of unkempt hair also straggled about the neck, giv ing to the man the look of some savage creature. Taking in these details, my eyes came at last to the eyes of these seemingly wild savages, and lo! I looked into large, soft, black eyes, so wide apart, like those of the ruminating animals. And In their depths lurked a good-natured smile, just waiting to an swer one from me. I never got used to the incongruous effect of those gentle eyes and that fierce beard on each other.” COLLEGE GIRL AS MOTHER Collection of Baby Pictures Shows Conclusive Evidence of Fitness. An instructor at Vassar college has an odd and interesting collection of photo graphs—the photographs of the babies of young women who are college gradu ates, says an exchange, are strong and beautiful. They number over 300. The instructor said of them: "I began to collect pictures of the children of female A. B.’s and A. M.’s because I had h^ard so much talk about the higher education unfitting woman for her natural sphere, and soon. "My collection proves that the high er education makes mothers of an ex eellece hitherto unknown. Highly edu cated women don’t weaken themselves with tight corsets, with overmuch danc ing and card playing. They are athletic and strong. Their bodies as well as their minds are developed. "They enter upon the duties of moth erhood with a unique courage and wis dom and strength, and the result is that their babies are the biggest, strongest, handsomest little creatures—" She pointed toward the 300 photo graphs. "But just look at those pictures." she cried. "Just look at them.” Cento Books. “This votume.” said the bibliophile, “is a cento. It is composed of de tached sentences taken from the worms of Thackery. It makes a novel, sen sible, but short, and it was composed in seven years by a bed-ridden baron ess. The best known cento is probably | the Empress Eudozie's ‘Life of Christ, i made entirely of lines from Homer. There is a similar life composed by Ross, that consists wholly of detached ! lines from Virgil. Centos are often very valuable.
