Lillian Russell during a i%cent visit
to Atlantic City was amazed to see
the number of slashed skirtB that still
prevailed on the boardwalk.
“They must be last spring’s left-

Just then a young girl in a skirt
outrageously slashed at back and
front asked her companion in pass-
"How- do you like my new dress?
Fits like a glove, doesn’t it?”
Fits like a mitt, she’d better say,”
murmured Miss Russell with a smile.

burglar in disgust. “It’s no use wast-

New Zealand Cannibal Tribe Advanc-
irg Rapidly—Women Have
Washington.—Many persons whoso
parents were cannibals are now voters
and good citizens in New Zealand, and
some of them are members of the New
Zealand parliament, according to a re-
port on the progress of the Maori
tribes and their descendants recently
made by the National Geographic so-
ciety in Washington. The society has
just completed a long study of the ad-
vancement of the tribes, which were
considered among the most vicious
tribes of cannibals in existence a lit-
tle over fifty years ago. At that time,
it is said, tribal feasts in which human
captives were the principal feature of
the bill of fare were periodical forms
of entertainment in the regions con-
trolled by the tribe chiefs. Today
even the women descendants of the
cannibals exercise the right to vote.
“When the English first occupied the
islands in the early part of the Nine-
teenth century,” the report states in
part, "it is estimated that there were
about 100,000 Maoris in New Zealand.
They were divided into tribes, each
tribe having its unwritten laws re-
garding land, cultivation, and other
"The English found that they had a
genius for war, showing unusual skill
in building, fortifying and defending
stockades. They found them also tillers
of the soil and that as carvers and
decorators they were unrivaled in the
Oceanic world, and that they displayed
great originality in design and perfec-
tion in the execution of rock paint-
ings, and In carving the ornamental
figures of their dwellings, their boats
and sacred inclosures. The Maoris
were also noted for their tattooing,
which was designed to ornament the
j body. Whoever refused to undergo the
protracted tortures of tattooing re-
quired at every important event of his
1 life was regarded as a person by his >
ow n consent foredoomed to slavery.
"There are about Jo,000 Maoris left. ;
These have retired to the northern
i provinces of New Zealand, where cer- \
tain reservations have been set apart \
j for their exclusive property. The Ma- j
ori children attend schools regularly. ]
Such of them as continue into the
higher branches of learning are said ;
to be worthy rivals of white students.
Some of the Maoris have become land- !
ed proprietors. They are proud of their
right to vote, and especially of the
fact that their women were given this :
privilege at the same time that it was
given to the white women of New I
It is said that tattooing among the
tribes is now rare, and that the Ma-
oris, to greater extent than any other !
group of savages, have indicated that
man can be raised from savagery to j
civilization within one generation.

YOUNG MAN WELCOMED SIGN
Showed That Fiery Southerner Might
Almost Be Considered "Back
in the Union.”
Senator A. O. Bacon of Georgia tells
this nlyry of Colonel Clayton, a fiery
southerner who went out of the Union
when his state did, and fought bravely
through the war. He refused to be
"reconetrusted'' after the war was
“ 'Once a Confederate always a Con-
federate,’ he was wont to say, and
although he recovered from the bit-
terness engendered in the four years
of strife be regarded himself as an
alien in the restored Union, and re-
fused to vote or to exercise any of the
duties of a citizen.
“When the war with Spaian broke
out, however, the old fire burned in
his eye, and he offered no objection
when his son, a stalwart specimen of
young manhood, joined the national
army and went to Cuba to fight.
“One day, after the battle of San
Joan, the young man received a letter
" ‘Wei!,’ he said thoughtfully, after
reading it, ‘father is back in the Union
at last.’ ”
’“Does he say so?' he was asked.
“ ‘Not exactly, but he might as well.
He writes "United States” now with-
out putting fhe word "United” in quo-
tation marks.’ ”
Many Women at Work.
Prof. Edward A. Ross says that
there are about 5,000,000 women en-
gaged in gainful occupations in the
United States, and that the number is
Increasing much more rapidly than
the general population. The factory
has taken everything out of the home,
he says, except the preparing of food
and the rearing of children. About
one-third of the single women of the
country between fifteen and twenty-
five are engaged in occupations out-
side of their homes, and in the city

women in the country are at work, hut
between twenty-five and thirty-five
only one-fifth of the number are at
work outside the homes, most of them
being married. .
Horse Hadn’t Had Fair Chance.
An Irishman who was selling a
horse to an English agent, who was
buying for the British army, was
asked by the latter would he guar-
antee the animal as fit for his majes-
"Of course I will,” replied Pat,
whereupon the bargain was completed.
Some time afterward the agent met
Pat at a fair.
"Why, you scoundrel,” exclaimed the
Englishman, “you guaranteed that
horse as fit for his majesty’s serv-
ice, and he turned out useless for

dug otic an angel cake, which she

"What's the matter with the angel
cake, Harry?” asked wifey, disappoint-
edly, on noticing that he studiously
avoided it. "Isn’t it good enough?”
"It isn't that, dear,” gently re-
sponded the old man. "I’m afraid that
I am not good enough.”
“Good enough for what?” queried
little wifey, with a puzzled expression.
"Good enough to become an angel,
sweetheart." softly answered hubby.—
"You don’t know how I worry about|
my husband,” said the tired looking
woman as she leaned on her broom j

much excited about a letter he had
written to the editor of a newspaper.
He told a friend that he intended to
lick the editor.
“Well, the other day I sent him a let-
ter on public affairs, which I signed
"Didn’t he print it?"
"Sure, he printed it; but what did
he do hut add an s’ to the signature!”

agines that he will be some day.
A Kind Father.
“Father," she said, "Mr. Kenwood
told me last night that he intended to
call on you today and ask you some-
thing very important about me. Did
you see him?"
“This is such a nice evening, Marie,
that 1 hate to spoil it by telling you."
Wrong Moment for Applause.
Friend (at a French play)—Why
did you applaud so vigorously when
that comedian made his speech before

folks would think I understood French, j
What did he say?

study, as his mother was dying.
