' The mystery that surrounds th
' Tuarei;s Is doubled by their custom of
: always going masked. A mask of
while or black cloth covers the mouth
n ud nostrils, ami, so the Timr say. ,
i protects them from the dust iiud
windblown sand of the desert, from
the poisonous vapor j of the Niger val- :
leys, and, no doubt, from the disease
"ertits which float so freely In the j
tilthy towns of Africa. Certain It Is
that infectious diseases ravngo other
North African people, whllo the Tua- i
re's maintain inaguillccut health from
year to year. Few travelers have ever i
seen the Tuares unmasked. Those
who have decline that they are as j
white as tiny Kuropeans, and decidedly
handsome, their pale skius doubtless j
being largely due to the mask which i
keeps oft' the burning sun. !

Thoughti In Music. ,
A girl, artistic to her very flnj;er
tips. had been "learning to play the
piano" for six years, und had come
to hate music. She was a victim of
the prevalent mechanical mode of
leaching. On being questioned, she
admitted thut there was one thing '
(hat interested her-a tune written by !
herself. "I loved to do It, and I can
sing it." Here she had used her own I
Initiative, and the exercise of It hail
made her luippy. "Teachers will lind :
that all children are Interested In
thinking mu!c, and thut. the Interest j
grows where otherwise It is apt to
Hag." The value of folksongs Is dl-
1 lated on, and the author has found
that boys llhe the Wagner motives,
some of which are as simple as folksongs.
