MUSIC APPEALS TO ESKIMOS.
Voices Good and They Sing in Tune,
According to Traveler in Regions
of the North.
Music Is one of the chief pleasures
and accomplishments of the Kskltnns.
At the Labrador missions violins are
used by them In the church choir, and
forsifs bands are organized. In "Along
the Labrador Coast" Dr. Townsend
tells of an evening's entertainment
with the Ksklmos at Nain.
"For over an hour these natives sing
to us," he says, "familiar music with
KBklino words 'Itock of Ages,' 'Holy
Night,' Interspersed with what I take
o be secular songs. Their voices are
harmonious and the singing Is of a
superior order. We return the compli
ment In the only way we can with a
Kraphophone. It Is Indeed a terrible
come-down to 'The Old Apple Tree' and
'Everybody Works Itut Father,' but the
I'JjkimoB seem to enjoy It, and greet
the songs and their explanation by
ll Interpreter with peals of laughter.
"A song in which a man beats his
wife seems especially to amuse them.

Getting Into Practice.
It Is often pleasanter to theorize
than to perform. A young law student,
says a writer In the Philadelphia In
quirer, was making a study of certain
processes of his future profession, lie
showed an Inclination to sit in the
house and speculate Idly, instead of
doing some of the domestic tasks
which stood waiting.
"Deduction Is an Interesting proc
ess," declared the youth to his fa
ther. "For example, there Is a heap
of ashes in the yard. That Is evl
dence lhat the family has recently had
"Well, John," Interrupted his fa
ther, "suppose you pursue your stud

sifting that pile of ashes." Youth's
How the "Toast" Originated.
The drinking to one's health Is a
very old custom, dating way down the
ages. In the six;ee;:th and svon
teenth centuries the favorite drinks
were sack, canary, clar.'t, sherry to
which were adJ 'd hor.ey, sugar, ginger
and other spices. On the top of thl3
mixture a piece of toasted bread wps
always flouted. It was supposed to
give the necessary flavor.
Idea of drinking a "toast.'
Is used In reference to any sentiment
proposed for a speech at a social
gathering or banquet. In fact, the
making of "toasts" is a very g.aceful
ait, worthy of cultivation.

A Sponge Garden.

by means of a damp sponge and a few
seeds. Take a large piece of coarse

red clover seed, millet, barley, grass,
rice, oats any or all of these. Hang
the sponge in a window where the
sun shines at least part of the day.
Country Life In America.
Dickens' Method of Speaking. .
llefore making a speech . Charles
Dickens would decide on his various
heads and then In his mind's eye lik
en the whole 8iihj"ct to the tire of a
carl wheel he lielng the hub. From
the hub to the tire he would run as
many spokes as there were suhj-cts
to he treated and during the progress
of the speech he would deal with each
spoke separately, elaborating them as
he went round the wheel; and when
all the spokes dropped out one by one
and nothing but the tire and space re
mained he would know that he had
accomplished his task and that Ids
speech was at an end.
That Energetic Boy.
When he wants to go some place a
boy can do work in ten minutes
which would ordinarily take him half
a day. Atchison 'oiie.
American Girls Responsible.
Probably the American woman is
answerable for n good deal of the
unrest among the daughters of France
for r.he comes among them witn all
sorts of daring projects and perfectly
lovely clothes. She nia.Ties their
