DAME NATURE'S LITTLE JOKE

Nature plays a cruel Joke In the dif-

have said that It was a providential
arrangement. The traveler who crosses
the Himalayas from Cashmere has to
climb nearly twice as much as the trav-

averages 12000 feet and for this rea-

"No" reflected Betty "every way

flashed out at the thought "the rain

It wns u beautiful umbrella. The

had given It to her as a gift.

Without awaiting an answer he
picked her up quickly In his arms and
seated her in the car.
"Didn't you hear me sound the
horn?" he gently persisted.
Then out of her vast relief Betty
"Oh ! I heard horns" she said
"everywhere. I do not blame you.
You see I'm from the country."
The man heaved a sigh of relief
then he also smiled.

Students have long been Interested
In the Australian uborlglne the Afri-
can bushmnn and the Ceyloneso
Vedda. The Veddas are recorded as
fur back as !HH B. C and their cus-
toms and beliefs are thought to have
changed but little since the stone age.
But the Veddas on report of a traveler
lately returned from the wilds of Cey-
lon are reaching the end of this
peculiar Interest. For now "hardly
a Vedda faithful .to the traditions-of
his ancestry survives: not one per-
hups that wears leaves for clothing
and depends for subsistence solely on
the products of the Jungle." The bow
and arrow are still sometimes used
but have been largely supplanted by
old-fashioned muzzle-loading guns
and the skillful archery for which tho
Veddas were notable has become a
lost art. In this Ceylon Jungle a few
typical Veddas are left but these are
