LIVESTOCK AND RANGES HBORMEW MEXICO Fairweather and mild temperature have been favorable for stock in all parts of the State, so the Weather Bureau leports in its weekly bulle tin.

Superstition Is still a silent monarch unonjj the Eskimos. When the men lie away after sea animals the women ire not permitted to work on the skins of land animals; and when the men hunt caribou the women must not touch the skins of sea animals. Men must not work on Iron until three days after the polar bear has been hunted. The Urst seal killed In a day's hunt ing is brought into the igloo through a special hole cut Into the Ice walls, and the eyes are punched out before It Is dragged In the room to prevent Its soul seeing the Interior, which would bring bad luck. When the whale-hunting season opens the Eskimos have a dance fest that lasts for a week ; and while the Angnkook, or medicine man, is demon strating his ability and arranging de tails, the Ice breaks sometimes and the whales get out Into the sea, leaving the celebrating Esklmbs without even one catch. Stefansson, who spent many years among the Eskimos, says they pick up Christianity quickly, because It for bids so many things, and they marvel at Sunday a day set aside for rest of which they nevpr dreamed.

Instead of a halterv In supply the electric current to the lamp, theie Is a d.Miaino. This is M't'in motion by pull ing ti chord whicll, through a train of cog-wheels and a coiled mainspring, starts an armature spinning between sK coils, thus producing the electric current that seies the lamp. Knob downward pull of the cmd produces enough elect rleitj for the seconds. Batterylesc Flashlight Is Operated by a Cord. The apparatus is not much bigger than a shoe-polish box and much the same shape; it Is hung by a cord from the neck, the operating cord hanging below in a position conenleiit for pulling. The mechanism is inclosed m a tin box, painted gray. The lid is easily removable, but is watertight. Kery time the cord is pulled the spring re turns It instantlj to its position of lest, so that one can hae a steady light by keeping on pulling the cord. The mechanism is strongly made, and there seems no leason why it should not last indefinitely. It is not quite so comen'ent as a flashlight with a batterj, hut it has the advan tage oer this of containing no essen tial part that must constantly he re newed and that has a hahlt of giving out Just when it i. impossible to re new and when it Is urgently needed.
