It got to be a positive mania with

a specified time.
She waited in the lobby, sitting on

Montana Indian, Digging Well, 0 >em.
Ingfy Came Upon Moet Remark-
able Freak of Nature.
More than eight year* nyo John
Npotlcd Wolf, on Indian of the Chey-
enne reservation In eastern Montuiiu,
decided that he should like to have a
well near Ids log cabin. Ko he and his
wife Mary cliosu a spot near a large
lilne tree, perhaps 20 rods from the
door, and then John began to dig.
By noon of the second day he bad
dug down ten feet. Although the
weather was mild, he had complained
of being cold while at work. After
eating be put on an extra coat and
went to work again. He kept Mary
and her brother Kdlling Bull busy
liHUiing up and carrying uway the dirt
tliut lie loosened. But In spite of
John's extra clothing be Htlll was cold.
On the third morning he added more
clothing; but when night came and the
well had reached the depth of 18 feet
he was almost frozen.
The next morning lie again descend-
ed the well and worked as rapidly u
his ninny layers of clothing would per-
mit. After a while water begun to
appear. Suddenly he shouted: "Bull
tiie up! I'ull me up!"
John had barely reached the surface
before the well filled to within a foot
of the top and then began to freeze
around the edges. In a short time
only a small opening perhaps a foot
In diameter remained.
The well remains the same way year
after year, the Youth's Companion
states. During the day In summer the
Mm melts the Ice around the top, but
nt night It freezes again. The well,
which furnishes a permanent Ice sup-
ply for the people In the neighborhood,
Is a strange freak of nature of which
there are so many In the western part
of the state. Tourists who visit the
reservation regard It as u great curi-

BETTER THAN DISH WASHING
Where Long Necks Are Stylish.
In Burma, among the Kurens, a
long neck Is the ambition of every
woman. Her mother starts thinking
about this when her duughter is a
baby, and starts to accomplish this
■wan-like effect when the tots are
scarcely able to walk.
The method employed Is a series
of heavy brass rings, which are as
thick as your little finger. These are
put around the child's neck, and as
she grows, more rings are added, thus
forcing her neck to lengthen out.
More riilgs are added year after year
as the girl grows into womanhood.
Twenty-one of these colls is the aver-
age worn, although 25 have been
The 21-rlng-collared woman is
thought beautiful, but the 25-rlnged
lady Is considered a raving beauty
under the Karens of Burma.
Student Finds Occupation of Driving
a Taxi Allows Him Mors Time
for His Books.
The passerby stopped beside the
taxicab parked near Brynnt park, re-
marks the New York Sun. He had
passed the same driver several times
and bad noticed he was reading. Once
it was Plato's dialogues, another time
John Buskin's "The Stones of Venice,"
and now Ids Interest was spurred to
the questioning point by observing the
driver wus delving Into Aristotle.
"I'm working my way through col-
lege," he said. 'I heard about students
who washed dishes and all that sort
of thing. But taxi driving Is the Ideul
Job for the student. I don't start to
work until late In the afternoon. I
have a rush at only certain hours.
The rest of the time I spend studying.
You get plenty of time in between
fares to learn the Euclid, the history
of the pyramids, and why Ruskln Is
dead against too much purple In
painting. I suggest taxi driving any
time Instead of waiting on tables."
