Queer P— pis «f Papua.
la tbs Gleam country, Papua, a dis
trict of New Guinea, where the conn
try is almost entirely submerged, the
natives are said to claim descent from
the dog. They possess five totems,
which are drawn on all their houses.
Their villages are erected on hillocks
so as to be clear of the water, and the
people of each village inhabit one
large, common house, sometimes as
much as 400 to 500 feet long and 00 to
80 feet in width. The center of this
huge building is a kind of common
ball, which is used only by the men.
while the walls of the structure are
divided Into cubicles in three or four
floors, access to which is gained by
means of ladders. The women are not
allowed to enter the building by the
same door as the men. ▲ great deal
of sorcery prevails in the western divi
sion. In the wilder parts of the coun
try the chief is himself a bead sorcer
er. He claims to be able to separate
bis spirit from his body and to send it
on various missions, including that of
killing people.
Jackal Flies of India.
Thors are certain Blast Indian files,
several varieties of them apparently of
similar type to our own bouse favorite.
Musca domestica, that have developed
a rather Ingenious. If somewhat dis
reputable. way of making a living.
This la the story told by Captains Pat
ton and Craig In the Indian Journal
of Medical' Research. The proboscis
of these flies is soft and not suitable
for piercing the skin of man or the
lower animals. So they hang around
some one of the several types of biting
files, and when the latter pierces the
akin of a victim they crowd him away
and use the incision for feeding them
stives. If the biter happens to be too
large or fierce thus to be driven from
bis prey, the fly Jackals wait until he
Is finished and then take his place. In
view of these observations it seems
quite possible that the so called non
biting flies may play a hitherto unsus
pected role In the transmission of dis
ease.
Arithmetic Justice.
Bough and ready Justice in Mexico
in the days of President Dias is illus
trated by the following story:
Kn a lonely part of the south a train
bad been robbed by the Inhabitants of
a certain village. The president told
a young officer to take hla company
and “put an end to that sort of thing."
The yonng officer bad every honse
searched. Almost all contained stolen
property. He then marshaled the vil
lagers, picked ont every fortieth man
and bad him shot After this be said:
•'I am taking my troops away, but if
any more train robberies take place we
■hall come back and shoot every twen
tieth man. Bhould it be necessary to
return again, every tenth man will be
executed."
No more trains were attacked.
