LAPP WOLF HUNTERS.

The Swedish Lapps live entirely
with, by and upon their reindeer. A
Lapp who owns a thousand deer Is a
very rich man; but, as taxes are as
sessed upon the number of deer, he Is
Inclined to underestimate his herd.

Tho wolf may have a start of n mile

The wolf, though he may run fast,
has but slight chance of escaping the
short men who on snowshoes rush

yards In height. Each hunter does his
best to outrun the others, for the wolf
belongs to the Lapp who strikes tho

hunter Is close enough to the wolf he
gives It a heavy blow across the loins
with his strong spiked snowshoe staff.
If there are other wolves to be pur
sued, he kills it outright; if not, he
disables it and waits till all the hunt

On Tipping the Hat.
Now Yorkers still cling to the an
cient custom of tipping their huts when
greeting n male friend or acquaintance.
It is a common sight to see a staid,
prosperous looking business man us ho
passes an acquaintance tipping his hat,
although the other Is alone and unac
companied by a woman. It Is tho
same after u party bus been together
somewhere, at dinner, probably, or at

then tip his hat. Also when one man
