As a result we have as beautiful a ballroom as one could wish to see. Moreover, we enn hnve music and dancing, for If we strike the wire the vibrations will act on the tin floor of the ballroom and the tiny figures will begin to dance enthusiastically and will continue to dance as long as we furnish ttera with music. WALK ON STILTS. A Picturesque Method of Locomotion in Routh western France. In southwestern France there Is a de partment known as Landes, bordering on the Bay of Biscay. 'which la among the most desolate and unproductive re gions In Europe. It has an area of nearly 4,000 square miles and a popula tion exceeding 300.000. While the east ern portion of this department Is fertile enough to permit of successful agricul ture, the western portion consists only of desolate tracts of sand banks, marshes and swamps, covered with heath and dwarf shrubs. The Inhab itants live in scattered villages of mis erable huts and subsist by fishing and WALK1MU ON STILTS. hunting and the raising of swine and sheep. The latter are of a wretched breed, thus partaking of the nature of their country. The chief peculiarity of the Inhab itants Is that they walk on stilts, the use of the latter greatly aiding locomo tion on the arid lands and salt marshy plains. Illustrative of this method ot locomotion we print a picture from the Illustrated London News showing the peasants on the way to market. The Inhabitants are chiefly of the Gascon race, and while rude and naturally poor they are good-natured and hos pitable. A Sorrowing Kansas Widow.
