TFE PORTUGAL OF TO-DAY.
Something o( Intercut Hnnltmt th
Country the 1'eoyJe nI It
PorUiffnl in all porfs Ixing extreme-
ly hilly you have as a rule only to
go a few yards up the roud to get a
wug'uiikent view wherever you aiay
be. More often you get many mag-
nificent views Kt re U'h in r: far away
among hills and pines with winding-
white roads and patches of white
houses ns far as you can see. The
hills are fcreat hills snow-clad for
months of the year and an incredible
purple for the rett. The maize fields
Kiipplv the bright green that might
be missed in a country where grass
will not grow and you can look at
almost any view without being con-
fronted ih its possibilities as a
signed engraving at a guinea each.
But the whole is curiously reminiscent
of the Japan that Mr. Mortimer Men-
pes brought home to us recently re-
ports the London Post.
Life begins early in the day whether
in town or country a suggestive state
of affairs in connection with a people
fabled as lazy and shiftless. Long be-
fore you think of rising yourself you.
may hear the fishwives crying their
wares and if you go on to the feran-
da in the sunshine of the morning:
you will probably find that the street
is bright with gay garments. Hours
ago the fisherman from Mattozinhos
and Leca hoisted brown lateen sails to
their peaked boats after a night's
toil on the Atlantic fringe and hav-
ing crossed the bar are shoving1 their
thole-pinned oars through the wa-
ter aa they come on the tide to the
market. The shore side gang is car-
rying bacalhao dried evil-smelling
codfish from Newfoundland in load
up the steep slope of the Eua Santa
Catharina and the ubiquitous Welsh
schooners from Port Madoc have re-
sumed the labor of taking- in ballast.
More ballast seems to go to Port
Madoc than to any other place in
the world at least you are inclined
to think so as you watch the stream
of laughing singing girls passing to
and from the barges to the ship with
their astoundingly heavy loads poised
on their heads. Then under your
veranda comes the sound of slow-
moving" greaseless wheels and an ox
cart creaks up the hill as lazily as
willing oxen will let it to an inter-
mittent admonition of "E-e-Bue-e-e"
and the pin pricks of an ox goad. By
these things you may know that Por-
tugal is awake. A
TURN THE POTTER'S WHEEL.
Kew Industry In Which Women Have
Karneil for Themselves Hliih
There appears to be no end to the
evenues. in which the women of to-
day find scope for their energies and
activities. Pottery' making is the
latest industry in which they' have
made their mark. The famous Kock-
wood works were started by a woman
and many women are now ' turning
their atteutdon to the possibilities of
the wheel combined with (left fingers
and delicate fancy in the manipulation
and designing of clay says the Chi-
All over the country women are be-
coming interested in pottery-making.
Classes are being formeu and find en-
thusiastic students ready to join them.
Several classes are already in opera-
tion in Brooklyn and are giving time
to the acquisition of this practical art.
A local artist who is a member of one
of these pottery classes says: '
. "The work is and will be for some
time to come crude and imperfect but
there is so much enthisiasm manifested
and promise of good work to-come that
the outlook is very promising. It is
proposed to have courses m poiiery
connected with china-painting socie-
ties. This will be a great step in the
right direction for the china paint
will not be dependent on conventional
shapes in pottery and the necessity of-
the same design being used over and
over again but each woman can de-
sign and modl her own piece and
thus give opportunity fortheintrodufr
lion of original types." '

The most essential thing about buying a watch
is to know that it is a GOOD watch. You don't buy a
watch as often as you do groceries and if you buy the
wrong kind you have bought a trouble that lasts a
longtime. You can depend upon any watch I sell
you to be just as 1 tell you it
